5 Minute Spirit Detox: Letting Go of Attachment and Attack


Letting go of attachment and attack is an important way to be able to stay in touch with our intuition and creativity. It is the best way to refresh and renew our spirits by allowing inspiration to come through us, unblocked.

This 5 Minute Spirit Detox Cleanse is a quick way to come back to center at the beginning and end of your day.

In today’s busy world, it is super easy to pick up, harbor and hold on to negative energy without even being fully aware of it. As we move about our jam-packed days we subconsciously absorb subtle (or, in some cases, not so subtle) messages of attack, pain, cruelty, self judgement, jealousy and stress.

If we don’t empty ourselves of all this heaviness, it compounds and sort of cakes up (not the good kind of cake with butter cream frosting and candles – we are talking about the bad kind of cake) inside of us without release.

In order to tune in to that higher frequency of love and peace, we need to acknowledge and release the negative energy we are holding on to that keeps us crippled and held back from our full potential. Negative energy is toxic for mind, body and spirit. It’s gotta go.

I hope this Spirit Detox cleanse will serve you well, dear ones.

The 5 Minute Detox Meditation: Spirit Cleanse

(Transcript below)

Welcome, welcome angel to your five minute Spirit Detox meditation. This meditation is perfect for those who are willing, open and ready to go deeper with their spiritual practice and to surrender to the power of practicing non-attachment.

So let’s take a moment to sit up comfortably in your space, relax your mind and body.

Gently close your eyes and take a deep breath in deep, deep, deep, and exhale fully, all the way out your mouth.

As the following mantras are read, follow along and allow your spirit to be refreshed through the exercise of letting go.

I am empty of self doubt.

I am empty of stress.

I hold on to nothing.

I am empty of judgement.

I am empty of self attack.

I hold no attack toward others.

I empty myself of all harshness.

I hold on to nothing. I am empty.

I am a vessel for peace and light.

I let go of the heaviness.

I am empty of all hurt.

I am empty of all jealousy.

Empty of all cruelty.

I am empty of thought.

In this moment I need no thinking. No words.

I am empty of desire.

I am empty of the desire to please or to fix.

I am empty of the need for praise.

Empty of the need for validation.

I am empty in this moment and I am whole.

I have no attachment to the judgement of others.

I am empty of need.

I seek nothing.

I choose in this moment to empty myself of the fears.

I surrender my fear to Love for healing.

I am empty of holding on, I let go of controlling.

I am empty of the past.

Empty of the future.

I am empty now.

Take a deep breath in through your nose, exhale fully out your mouth.

Empty of all negative energy.

Allow all stress to leave your body.

Allow all tension to leave your mind.

As you breathe in again deeply imagine your breath filling you with light and love and peace.

Imagine your entire being filled with the warm life giving energy of the gentle power of love.

You are exactly where you need to be.

And to close this meditation take a moment to imagine your entire body and mind glowing with light and warmth.

Breathe in peace.

And when you are ready, open your eyes.

      And can you imagine – I just learned that today is Bodhi Day, the day where traditionally the enlightenment of Buddha is celebrated. This makes me so very happy! May each of us glow with deep peace and light this day, my dear, dear friend.

      Big love, hugs and kisses to you! ;)

    Sweet dear friend, I knew that there was a reason that we were drawn together, we are both Saggitarians! Happy birthday, dear one. You are a shining light in this world that can darken for some. I wish you abundant blessings beyond your wildest imagination and may all of your dreams come true. Blessings, peace and Namasté, Lydia

    Happy birthday, and thanks for sharing this meditation — yeah, that caked up stuff definitely has got to go! After reading this post I have a mental picture of old negative energy as the smelly stuff that clogs pipes, yuck. And it’s probably doing just that inside the body…

    1. Allison Marie Post author

      Thanks a million, Meg!

      And that is exactly the perfect analogy for negative crap that bogs our spirits down. Let’s drop the sludge baby, no more. I feel my pipes cleansing even now reading your positive words!

      You rock :) :)

    My enjoyment of the gift goes without saying but it seems unfair that you are on the giving end when you should be receiving. Anyway, my birthday is December 20th, only 12 days from today (Where did this year go?) I used to hate my birthday because it was so close to the holidays and we were out of school and all my friends were gone. It didn’t help that everyone always gave me one present since my b’day was “so close to Christmas.” It sucked. :)

    All of that can change this year, since my 8-year-old g’daughter called me a couple of weeks ago and said, “G’Mom, I was thinking. What do you think about a birthday/Xmas party on your birthday?” (She is only 8 years old and already sounds grown. :)

    Have a beautiful day, my kindred spirit!

    Blessings and Namasté, Lydia

    1. Allison Marie Post author

      haha, Oh Lydia!! I bet that did suck!

      Your granddaughter sounds like an angel, so so sweet! It will be an awesome party for sure. Lots of groovy love. :)

      I know it, friend, this year was a quickie.

      Thank you again, and I love giving presents!! XO

    1. Allison Marie Post author

      Thank you, my friend!

      I hope you will enjoy this little meditation :) It has helped me very much with letting go and allowing creativity and inspiration to pour through.

      Blessings! :)

    The words sound gorgeous! And happy birthday, girl!
    I’m going to hold off doing this till the builders who are sawing wood on one side of my apartment and revving up their shrieking Back and Decker on the other cease their infernal racket. Does that video mean your dulcet tones will accompany my cleanse? What a treat. And it’s not even my birthday!

    1. Allison Marie Post author

      Thank you so much, my love! Hmmm yes, yes do try to listen to the audio perhaps when it’s more quiet (doing some making-over are you? Fun!) . . . not a video yet. . . but I think one may be coming. . .

      I hope you enjoy this quick but very powerful cleanse – I dare say it’s a lovely way to rid yourself of that nagging ‘stuff’ we accumulate throughout the day. I use it myself daily! :)

      Big hugs and love! XO
