Attachment+Imagination=Creation

temp-post-image

For most deliberate creators the part of the creation process that’s most challenging is the allowing part. It’s what happens in that buffer of time between the asking and the receiving. The waiting game can be really hard, especially when you’re flowing some need for the thing you’re waiting for.


We’re taught that attachment is a bad thing. We’re suppose to want it, which is the asking part, and then drop it like a hot rock, during the allowing part. However, I think there is a very big distinction between attachment and need.

Attachment kind of feels like, “Hell yeah! I want that! I really, really do”.

Need kind of feels like, “I’m not going to be ok without this thing. If it doesn’t show up soon I’m going to be in trouble. This has to happen.” need is toxic to the manifestation process. However, a healthy dose of attachment can actually be beneficial.


Attachment can be juicy and you can put it to work for you, if you can let it be playful. Fuel it up. Shine a light on it. Pump it up! This is where imagination comes in. Abraham has said you know your stuff is just about to show up when you’ve gotten to the point where you don’t really even want it anymore. This isn’t about releasing attachment. It’s about spending so much time with your delicious creation, that it’s become incredibly real to you.


Maybe you really want a shiny, new, hot sports car. You want it really bad. You're pretty attached to that outcome. You don't have it yet, but you aren't pining away for it either. Why? Because you are driving that baby everyday. You're imagining it with so much devotion that you experience it every day. You know that car inside and out. You are familiar with every aspect of it, the smell, how it feels to nest into the leather seats, the sound of the engine right before you shift. When you see other cars like it on the road, it doesn’t leave you with a twinge of envy. You actually feel a rush of pride. You’re already giving those drivers the little nod and smile because you’re in the club. You aren’t worried about when your car is showing up, because it’s so real for you, you’re already enjoying it. To be honest, you’ve gotten to the point where you wonder just a little bit if the real car will be as much fun as the one you’re imagining.

Guess what. By the time you get there, that car is probably already in your driveway. If it’s not, it’s really, really close. When it does show up you’ll be happy to have it, but you’re happy right now too. That is deliberate creation at it’s finest. You aren’t dependant on anything happening to make you feel good because you’re using your imagination to stoke the fire of your creation and feeling really good in the process. Do not kid yourself. You cannot do that without attachment. You also can’t do that if you’re feeling needy.
