A mind that is disconnected from the body is usually influenced by one of three thieves - ignorance, blame, and/or avoidance. From what we don't know that hurts us to blaming others for what we don't have, these thieves steal our power and keep the disconnection strong and wide.
The mind disconnects from the body for many reasons - ignorance, blame, and denial. It is the unawareness that something is an issue that can hurt but can be solved relatively easily through awareness or knowledge. Blaming others limit you, but confronting controlling behavior takes back your power.
