Detachment

In today’s climate there seems to be a growing hunger to know, how we can live our Truth, live in peace, share joy and be kind towards ourselves and others. How can we put into practice the ancient and esoteric wisdom that is now becoming available to us? How can we heal the suffering in our mind and illuminate the wisdom in our Heart? How can we let go? How can we be detached and compassionate? How can we reclaim our confidence and power? The LiberatingTouch​® Detachment Process can help you to stay centred, loving and true to the dictates of the Self. 

Detachment is the most misunderstood concept of spirituality. Detachment can also be thought of as non-attachment. Non-attachment is when the mind and the senses are not affected by external circumstances, situations, desires and people. It allows us to maintain balance even in the most challenging of situations. The mind obscures the Real Infinite Self (SELF), and therefore, the mind can be described as a veil. It is a veil of ignorance, which keeps you unaware of the magnificent presence of the SELF within you. The mind itself is tied down by the sense organs, attitudes, desires, and stories about the phenomenal world, and is bound by these. Thus, one of the first steps in knowing your true SELF is to understand the mind and teach it detachment. Just as removing the firewood from the fire automatically extinguishes the flame, removing the energetic links that bind the mind to objects, habits and beliefs, automatically frees our awareness to experience the power of the SELF.

Detachment allows us to live in the present, free to make empowered choices, to focus on harmony and avoid getting entangled in unnecessary drama and stress. It gives us clear vision, so even in the most challenging situations we are able to come from a place of power, inner confidence and peace. The LiberatingTouch​® Detachment Process creates an amazing healing space for the mind, so that we can detach from our stories, attitudes and addictions and experience clarity. Detachment is the secret of Infinite Peace. It endows us with the ability to live a life that is saturated with Love and Truth.

“At first the mind will resist any attempt to detach. It will refuse to let go of its stories, attachments and its thirst for control. Once it has tasted the freedom and peace that arises from detachment, the mind looks forward to the joy of non-attachment. A detached mind is patient, open, clear, and able to delight in the exquisite goodness and beauty of the SELF everywhere.” Ranjana and Eddie

The Infinity Exercise 

Here is a practical visualisation exercise to help you create space for yourself in any given moment

The ‘Infinity Exercise’ is a visualisation technique which is also a component of the LiberatingTouch® Detachment Process. Visualise or imagine that you are in one loop of a large ‘Infinity symbol’ and the object, symbol or person that you need to detach from is in the opposite loop of the ‘Infinity symbol’. You then visualise a ‘white serpent of light’ moving along the path of the ‘Infinity symbol’ (clockwise or counter-clockwise), looping around you and then looping around the ‘other’, as illustrated in the diagram.

As you do this your thoughts will create a vortex of energy spinning around you in one direction and spinning around the loop in front of you in the opposite direction. Physics tells us that objects spinning in opposite directions cannot come together but will pull apart. A vortex will also pull everything to its centre, just like water in a sink which spirals as it drains out. When we do this exercise, we are communicating to the subconscious, in symbolic language, to deprogram our attachment to the object, person or symbol in the loop opposite us. Therefore, the subconscious will free the energy locked in the conditioned process and allow us to reclaim our power. In effect, it is breaking the pattern of control (fear).

This exercise can be used, whenever you feel that you are reacting to someone or something, even during a phone call, or when conversing with someone. All you have to do is put yourself in one loop of the Infinity symbol, and the person or object in the other loop and visualise the ‘white serpent of light’ going along the path of the ‘Infinity symbol’, till your reaction stops, or till you experience serenity.

This one visualisation can help you at any time to create space, so that you can respond to any situation/person with clarity and strength. We all know how easy it is to get enmeshed in irate conversations, to be triggered by a remark, or to feel pressured. If in that moment, you remember to visualise, think, or even trace the Infinity symbol with your fingers, and imagine that you are in one loop, and the distressing/annoying/confusing issue/person is in the other loop; you can instantly create the breathing space you require to disengage from the story and take inspired action. The use of the Infinity Exercise is colloquially referred to as infinitising.

Client Experiences

“For me, the most powerful element of the process is the Infinity Exercise (incorporated in Step 2 of the LiberatingTouch® Detachment Process). I use this at least five or six times a day to help me stay centred and respond with peace to all situations. If I feel stressed, I ‘infinitise’ it. For example, I used to loathe going to the dentist; now I simply ‘infinitise’ my anxiety, the dentist and any fears that I have. This takes the edge off. During appointments, I hold my fingers; this relaxes me, and my dental experiences are almost agreeable.” Peter, p. 40, Detachment-The Secret to Infinite Peace

“This is just to give you a feedback about the Detachment. Mine was with food, more specifically sugar. My biggest problem was at the end of the day. Even after dinner I always needed something else (usually candy ) I did not think the detachment was going to work so well and so fast (I'm surprised) But it worked well, thank you for sharing this knowledge.” Susanna

“A friend came to visit me and asked me about the Detachment Process, I explained and suggested the book to read. The same week this friend had a client who was being bullied by a co-worker for being a vegetarian. So, she suggested to the client to use the infinity symbol to create space between him and his work colleague. A week later after using the infinity exercise every day the work colleague stopped bullying him and started being more friendly. It's been months now, and today, they are not just work colleagues but friends as well, and they're dining out together regularly. This is by using the infinity symbol, only.” Maria on behalf of Emma
