What is detachment?

A lot of the ancient spiritual traditions – and some modern ones as well, ask for you to be detached. When you hear the word detachment, you likely assume it implies letting go. At a superficial level, the mind understands this as letting go of all the material things that are holding you down or keeping you away from discovering your truth. So the mind starts making lists of the things it is attached to, believing that releasing them might finally end the suffering and pain it’s trying to avoid. This causes pain, more attachment, and confusion that creates a more significant distance from you to realize who you are.

A deeper understanding of detachment means letting go of expectations, certainty, the need to control and predict what will happen, releasing the others, and releasing the attachment we have with our mind and ego. It’s an ever-occurring detachment because we are full of personalities, beliefs, ideas, presumptions, and fears. It means seeing how this binds us; by seeing this, the essence of who you are can rise and be.

How can I connect with my intuition?

Connecting with your intuition is one of life’s pivotal learnings and ever-evolving mastery. Throughout your life, you have been conditioned not to trust yourself and not stray from what is considered normal or conventional. Even though you always have this inner voice whispering what your soul yearns for, its sound gets drowned by the ever-doubting mind and the need to belong and fit in, which is essential for the ego to survive.

When you go deeper within yourself and feel called to discover your intuition, it usually means the healing journey and the discovery of your spiritual nature are calling to you. It implies that transformations, witnessing the inner world, and the movements toward your heart have begun. Intuition can be called your inner compass. It is this moment-to-moment wisdom that is guiding you towards the highest consciousness of living life. It manifests as this gentle inner voice that keeps guiding you to the best action for you and all the beings around you. Learning to listen to it implies becoming comfortable with silence and not knowing, being open to flow with life more than pushing your will. It’s a long-lasting process that yields the most profound inner connection and communion with the Divine.

What is the right way to parent?

When tending to a child, most conditionings that have been invisible to you before emerge relatively quickly. They are beliefs about how a child should behave, act, speak, play, breathe, eat, look at the world, dance, etc. It’s endless. This implies that you can never see the child (or children). You naturally become rigid, authoritarian, demanding, and punishing. In essence, you are trapped in your mind and beliefs; the ego is trying to survive by attempting to control whatever is happening. This leaves you with remorse, resentment, and exhaustion, and it leaves the child (or children) isolated, lost, fearful, and disconnected.

When we become parents or we have to care for a child, there is a natural biological drive to give them better than what we received. But if we haven’t started our healing journey or become aware of our conditionings, beliefs, and hurts, we will repeat what we unconsciously know. Being able to tend to a child implies being present and with a flowered heart. It means seeing what is happening moment to moment, beyond the mind-perceived chaos, and answering from your higher consciousness. It means welcoming life and its flow, every second of it. Allow yourself to be broken by it, be more accessible, and reconnect with your authenticity and heart.
