Welcome to MentorshipRevolution Question Column 10th Edition!
Mission Statement : MR is designing a question column because we truly believe questions are the gateway to knowledge and wisdom. We are encouraging our supporters and the people in societies to seek information that can bring about positive change, individual growth, and community growth.
What’s the deal: As of now MR will randomly answer a question every now and then- that we all have asked once in our life, or at least will eventually. We desire for the questions to be asked by the people, but we don’t have a problem creating them. To send in a question please email the question to mentorshiprevolution firstname.lastname@example.org or leave it as a comment on the website mentorshiprevolution.com. Enjoy reading this month’s column!
For this Question Column I am going to focus on exploring the meaning behind detachment, and how this skill can lead to us all living more naturally fulfilling lives.
I want to help break down the negative approach or assumptions about detachment, and instead reveal why detachment in today’s world can be healthy and helpful.
Warning: I am not advocating negative or harmful forms of detachment that is abnormal or unhealthy in an individual’s life. For example: Avoiding others for long periods of time or being afraid to go out and live a normal life. That is not the kind of detachment that I want to encourage others to employ.
Question: What is the detachment process?
Answer (Answered by founder of MR Hannah L.):
MentorshipRevolution has an affirmation series that we started in 2018. It was created to be a representation of the powerful and effective impact of Affirmations.
Affirmations are affirmative statements that require spoken word and agreement.
First, you must create or find an affirmation. An example of an affirmation would be “I am beautiful” or “I am blessed”.
These are examples of simple but profound statements.
As you should notice affirmations are also beliefs. We are what we believe we are. This only makes sense to us though as we mature and descend down the path of adulthood..
Children on the other hand are not that strongminded, which is why they depend on the adults around them to nurture, protect, and raise them.
Say a child is raised hearing negative affirmations ( yes, affirmations can be negative) or things said about them or their parents that doesn’t evoke positive or good feelings and results.
This child will subconsciously begin to pick us these not wholesome narratives, and then consciously the child will begin to repeat and spread the same narratives.
I created an affirmation series, because during my sophomore year of high school I begin to start using affirmations to create positive change in my belief systems and my life at whole.
For the month of July MR’s Affirmation Series Part 8: The Detachment Process focused on as you already can tell detachment.
Many people at first word or first glance would likely not consider how detachment is a necessary skill to learn or adapt in life. But it is!
The Detachment Process usually happens as we get older ( or hopefully) and we are able to see life as mature individuals in comparison to seeing life through the eyes of a child.
But I do advise that teenagers learn and understand Detachment, because I did it!
Detachment starts with us recognizing that something has to change, and then us realizing we are the force for that change to happen.
This realization is usually caused by us being able to perceive something is wrong, something is not right, and I want this something to be better.
Once you have reached the final stage of perception you can move into action.
Action is the beginning of you doing what you need to do that is good for you.
Here are some good examples: Detaching from social media. Detaching from those who don’t want you around or who doesn’t appreciate you and all you are. Detaching from negative beliefs about your self and who you can become. Detaching from people once you realize you need time for yourself and regrouping.
I have just gave you a mini course ( and introduction for some) on the detachment process.
I have created an entire series on the detachment process full of unheard and new content, materials, resources.
It is only $25 to purchase, and even better in this package I am giving you access to all of MR’s Affirmation Series for the rest of 2019.
Surf through this website and see the several posts that can give you greater insight into what the detachment process is about and how you can gain access into all this life-changing information and knowledge.
You have reached the end of Question Column 10th Edition! This has been an amazing Question Column and I have enjoyed speaking on the detachment process. If you have been convinced in the blessings and benefits of detachment then I encourage you to not be intimidated by detachment. Our world is very hectic and busy nowadays, and we all deserve to keep and regain our mindfulness and sanity.
Thanks for tuning in by reading this question column, and I hope you will join us for the next edition.
