Attachment Theory and Mindfulness

June 20, 2021

Attachment theory is connected to relationships and bonds between people, including long-term relationships, short-term relationships, parent-child relationships, and romantic relationships. It is a theory developed by the British psychologist, John Bowlby, who described attachment as “lasting psychological connectedness between human beings.”

If you believe your life is unfolding the way it is because of attachment issues, what can you do about it? How can you take control of your life?

One of the things you can do is to become more aware of your conscious mind and how it is controlling your actions. Notice your patterns and how they are keeping you in a particular place. Before I understood the difference between the conscious and subconscious mind, I felt like there was a war within myself. Having interviewed over 650 guests for Mindfulness Mode, I’ve come to believe that a majority of the populations is experiencing this ‘Inner Bully’ to a certain degree.
Maybe you want to go to the gym or eat healthier and it’s just not happening no matter how hard you try. Maybe it’s about being more productive or you want to stop self sabotaging your relationships. Have you come to realize that you’re falling back into those same ruts or patterns. This is usually a sign that your conscious mind has one intention and your subconscious mind have another. It’s the subconscious mind that always wins in the end.

Tune into the episode to learn more about attachment theory.
