Personal Growth – Detachment is the Secret of the Law of Attraction


Detachment is the secret of the law of attraction.  In this article, I will explain what detachment is and how it is the number one key to making all of your joyful dreams come true.

Ask.  Believe.  Receive.

I was once listening to the spiritual advice of a “success thought leader,” and he said that the secret of success lies in understanding three principles.  He said that these three principles are: Ask.  Believe.  And Receive.

The Real Meaning of “Believing”

Today, during my morning meditation, I got an insight as to the real meaning of “Believe,” and how the right kind of belief creates the magic and miracles that we all seek.  First of all, as I understood and saw in my meditation, we are not talking about egocentric belief, that is, “I believe that I can do this,” or “I believe that I will achieve this or that.”

Trust is the Magic Ingredient of Believing

The type of belief that creates miracles can be translated as “Trust,” but not trust in one’s own limited powers and abilities on a human level, but Trust in Higher Power and Higher Power’s Divine Love to give us what we need when we need it.

Detachment and the Law of Attraction

It was at this point that I understood how and why Detachment creates the impetus for the Law of Attraction.  You cannot detach or stop worrying about the outcome of any desire unless you trust that all will happen for the best at the right time and in the right way according to the will and way of Universal Divine Love.

My Personal “Success Story” with Detachment

I have noticed on a personal level (and I am sure that you can also if you think about it), that every time I have truly “stopped worrying” about an outcome after I have done all I could, the outcome happened almost immediately.

I remember after I obtained my master’s in Psychology, I applied for a Level II Children’s Social Worker’s position.   There were delays of weeks at a time and a long waiting list in order to be processed.  I then remembered what my sage daughter, Luzemily, told me once when she was only 13 years-old, “Dad, if you can learn to live without it, you can definitely have it.”

So, following her advice, I just dropped the concern over being employed as a children’s social worker from my mind.  In fact, instead of worrying and waiting, I decided to seek out other employment in the meantime.

Detachment Opened the Door for Me to Receive

I found an opening to teach Psychology as a permanent tenured position at one of the local community colleges here in Southern California.  I applied for the teacher’s job, thus completely detaching from my concern of being hired as a social worker.

Within 24 hours after having detached and applied for the teacher’s position, I received an email from the County of Los Angeles saying that I was hired immediately and was given a start date of 2 weeks following that email notice.  Coincidence?  Yes, of course.  But what is coincidence after all other than the divine language of God?

Why There Can Be Miracles when You Believe

Belief means miracles, but it is a only that type of belief which implies trust in God.  (Trust and faith are synonymous.)  Trusting implies non-worry.  Non-worry equals detachment.  Thus detachment is the secret to the Law of Attraction – because when you detach, you let go and let God.

All the best,
