Spiritual Law Of Attachment
We are able to wish for anything we want in our lives – but if our sense of self-worth or happiness depends upon having it, then we are ‘attached’ to it.
The Spiritual Law of Attachment tells us that whatever (and/or whoever) we are attached to has the power to control and manipulate us.
Etheric cords are formed between people who have unresolved emotions and issues between them. Each and every time we send out negative thoughts or angry words of jealousy, envy, hurt or need towards someone, a tiny thread is manifested which attaches to them. This forms a bond or ‘attachment’ of sorts. If we consistently send out these feelings and emotions, these tiny threads become cords or ropes.
These strong cords remain and bind us to the person we feel negatively towards. Unless these cords (or binds) are resolved, they will reactivate and inevitably draw towards us those with whom we have unresolved issues. This happens in order to enable our soul to re-face the lesson of forgiveness, and gives us the opportunity to do things differently.
The Spiritual Law of Attachment encourages us to weigh up what we want and need for our soul’s growth, rather than for our ego’s sake.
We can be attached to things and objects as well as other people. Negative energies such as pride, envy, greed and need can form strong cords (or ties) to such objects as bank balances, occupations, houses, jewels and even cars. This is why they are called the ‘trappings of wealth’.
We can have financial wealth, a great job, a beautiful home, furniture and car and all that we desire in our lives – but if we NEED to possess them in order to give us a sense of self-worth, security and/or status, they then become a ‘trapping’.
We are entitled to enjoy a wonderful, loving relationship (or relationships) – but if we NEED them to validate ourselves, then this becomes ‘neediness’. Neediness binds you to your partner, resulting in you being emotionally (and psychically) pulled to and fro. Co-dependent relationships enmesh us in such strong cords that it is difficult to be and feel objective about the relationship. We become negatively bound out of need.
If a parent is tightly bound to a child (and vice versa), it can become difficult to release that child into adulthood. This in turn can result in the child finding it difficult to form and maintain mature, adult relationships with a partner.
‘Attachment’ is ‘conditional love’. If we NEED someone to behave in a certain manner in order for us to love them then this is ‘conditional love’. It is attachment. According to the Spiritual Law of Attachment, unconditional love dissolves the ties and cords that bind. When we put our expectations, desires and hopes on other people, they react from their own patterns. When we love them unconditionally we accept them for who they are, as they are.
Forgiveness and unconditional love dissolves cords and ties. Our souls and inner-selves want us to release all of our unresolved issues so that we are free to move forward upon our spiritual paths. When we forgive others and totally let go of what has occurred in the past we are able to free the other person, and most importantly, free ourselves.
Emotions such as guilt and shame bind us to negative memories and hold back our spiritual growth. When we are ready to forgive ourselves for past actions, deeds and feelings, we are able to dissolve these restrictive binds and the memory loses its’ power over us.
The Spiritual Law of Attachment teaches us that the most powerful way to release attachment is by visualization, intention and unconditional love for ourselves and others.
