Are you struggling to let go of ego or desires? Do you feel like you’re holding onto life with a death grip, afraid of what will happen if you let go? Non-attachment is one of the most important concepts in all of spirituality and self-development. It’s the idea that we detach ourselves from our desires, wants, and outcomes. We let go of our need for control, and instead allow the universe to guide us on our path.
If you’re looking to cultivate a non-attachment mindset, affirmations can be a powerful tool. In this article, we will discuss 60 affirmations for non-attachment that can help you let go and surrender to the universe!
What is Non-Attachment?
Non-attachment is the idea of detaching oneself from one’s desires, wants, and outcomes. It’s allowing the universe to guide us on our path instead of trying to control everything ourselves. We don’t have to control everything because we ARE everything.
Non-attachment is a concept that originates from Buddhism. In essence, this is the concept of “inter-being,” introduced by Thich Nhat Hanh in the tradition of Engaged Buddhism–I inter-am with the trees, the grass, my pets, my family, my ancestors. We are not at all separate, and in fact, we are all one.
Therefore, when you understand that you are one with the Universe, you can release all attachment to something, to a desire, to an outcome, to a plan, and accept whatever the Universe gives you as divine source. Everything comes from the Universe and returns to the Universe. Nothing is separate.

Michael Beckwith describes non-attachment as being integral to the fourth and final stage of Life Visioning, Being Consciousness. The four stages are:
- Victim consciousness
- Manifestor consciousness
- Channeling consciousness
- Being consciousness
In Being Consciousness, you not only manifest your ideas, channel the Universe through you, but you also understand that you in fact ARE the Universe. You are not separate from the Universe, and whenever you speak, the Universe is speaking through you. When you create and share with the world, the Universe is sharing through you.
