Hi All,

I have recently come across a lot of discussions about detachment on this website and elsewhere.

As suggested by all of you here, it is evident that after launching a rocket of desire, it is best to detach one self with if for speedier manifestations. I completely agree to this.

That brings me to a question that is "Attachment" to our desires a negative emotion, something similar to anxiety, worry or fear etc?

And if it is, can we neutralize this negative emotion of attachment through processes like EFT?

I was actually looking out for a simple process to detach my self with my desires and I thought of experimenting with EFT.

A while ago I tried EFT to neutralize my feeling of attachment with several of my desires. I am not sure what the result would be, but it surely felt very light and almost immediately I got into my vortex.

Since then I am also experiencing a feeling of drowsiness (which I assume, you all have described here as a feeling experienced after a good belief changing session)

I wanted to ask if any of you have tried this and if yes what was your experience like?

I some how feel this has helped me and it might lead to the fulfillment of some of my desires to which I not quite attached anymore :)

I look forward to your comments, feedback and suggestions.

Thank you so much :)

Oh Stingray please answer.....(how's that for a manifestation? :))

@Nikulas - Why don't you try answering yourself? You already know far more than you give yourself credit for. And as I've noted a number of times on this site already, you learn more from answering questions for others than you do from actually having them answered for you :)

@Stingray - well I pretty much have got zero come back for that :) And yes, answering things for yourself also has that side effect of understanding issues a bit better.

I have so many issues to address with EFT, I need to get busy. I have listened to audio including the EFT World Summit and watched videos about people using EFT to assist with the LOA. We have limiting beliefs that keep us from letting go, or whatever it is that we need to do to attract what we want. For example if we are attracting a new job, we need to write down how we feel about getting that job. List your limiting beliefs and then address them with the EFT. So you might have stuff like: I don't deserve this job; I am not worthy of being hired; nobody should have to pay for my services; there is somebody more qualified; etc... Your past experiences are what make up your limiting beliefs, so you have to make the list for you. Maybe it's not the field your parents wanted for you. These are all limiting beliefs that keep us from trusting that our desires will manifest. EFT to remove them won't hurt and should help. Let us know how this works for you.

@FP maybe you could give some example of what you would say while taping in those issues you stated?

On the karate chop point repeat 3x Even though I don't deserve this job, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. Then as you tap on the points, say the reminder phrase, "I don't deserve this job." When you get it down to a 1 or a 0 intensity, tap again with a positive statement like, I deserve a great job! I deserve good things, etc... Tapping in what you do want.

@ Fairy Princess: Thanks so much :) Your answer gives me further clarity on how to release resistance with EFT. I have been experimenting lately with EFT and Focus Blocks. I find both of these to be great processes to release resistance and I feel very light and nice after having done any or both of these. Thanks once again :)

You're welcome :)

I've tried EFT and it's quite helpful, but recently I've been doing self-hypnosis which has helped me sooo much more! One of the exercises you can do in a relaxed state is to think about an emotion that you want to get rid of e.g. fear and see it as a shape or texture in your body then ask that emotion what it needs to feel better e.g. love or acceptance and then thinking of a happy memory and colour give that feeling and colour to the shape of the unpleasant emotion until it disappears!

I think attachment can be good or bad, depending on how your looking at it. I feel its negative when you feel you won't be happy unless you have said thing, or its something you feel you desperately need.

But I don't think its so negative if your just really enjoying the idea of it (whatever you're trying to manifest). There are some things I get so excited about and think about frequently. I'm not sure if it blocks my desire or not. But I just 'go with the flow' so to speak in those situations. Some things I have thought about for awhile, really enjoyed the process, then, as soon as something completely off topic came up, it would either manifest or I would get a 'vibrational match'. But I always remember the saying its the journey that counts.

EFT has been helpful for me too. Its really helped my confidence. Sometimes, I just tap because it relaxes me. I love it, its made a lot of differences for me.

When I tap, I start by admitting my negative feeling/belief, and saying "I deeply and completely love and accept and forgive myself". Then I just talk to myself while I tap the other points, saying positive statements until it just "snowballs". I went on for twenty minutes once, that felt great. I have more faith that my desires will manifest after I tap, that's for sure.

Its the quickest way I know how to be more relaxed, trusting, and happy in general. Meditation seems to help a lot too, if you haven't tried it, but that's a little harder to get the hang of. But like I said, sometimes I think we should just enjoy the process. I know I wouldn't appreciate some things as much if they just fell in my lap shortly after I decided I wanted it... but that's just me. :-)

Good luck!!

NO, living what makes you happy is what life is!! Weather you do somthing for you OR others, it is doing somthing that makes you happy, If you only recieve this "happieness" when you do it for yourself, than you are on a self serving path. If you do it for others, and that is what TRULY gives you joy, then you are on a service to others path, either way if you are having a "pleasent existance" and you are feeding experiances to the soul, thats what pysical existance is all about. Neither is "wrong" but i perferre the latter. I will say though that even though all roads go to GOD ( or the oneness ) the path of self service will become MUCH MUCH more loneley when you assend into the higher density ! i promise :-).

love n light,

Good question, as you know im looking into the detachment thing too.

Ive had a slight problem with this and its this.

Theres something that i really desire at the moment,i think about this and imagine and envision it a lot. Frankly i enjoy doing this so much that im thinking about the thing so much i cant say ive detached.

My problem ( if it is a problem) is that the imagination of this thing is just so bloody enjoyable.I spend very many great times envisioning this thing and even before its manifestation its given me so much pleasure.

Im certainly not detaching from this and have no desire to not think about it.

Very recently i began reading Neville Goddard.He has a couple of hundred lectures online and some stuff on u tube.

His work has settled this question,for me anyway. He may be some help to you too.

Eddie put me on to him and i bless the day i started studying his work.

Perhaps he might help you too.

Hey Monty, thanks for suggesting Neville Goddard's readings. I will certainly go through these :) Well, what you are doing while envisioning your desire is also step 3 work, which is great!! With me what I have observed is that while I love envisioning my desires, it stays in mind all the time and later on some sort of anxiety about its manifestation creeps in. Hence as suggested by you and others on this website, I am trying to keep my self detached and leave it onto the universe without worrying. This keeps my mind and heart quite light :) Thanks once again!!

(24 Apr '11, 05:58) Sourabh

I know what you mean Sourabh,about negative stuff creeping in. I think half the battle is "knowing" its creeping in and then blocking this off with whatever tools we have. This sites quite good at coming up with the tools.
