You can find thousands of articles and books on how to cope with a divorce. Everyone knows a divorce or separation can be difficult, but everyone handles it differently and no one can tell you exactly how best to deal with the transition. Author Pamela Dussault recently shared that discovering who you are is one of the effects of divorce that we don’t consider. She says that it helps us become true to ourselves, and discover things we wouldn’t have seen before. Here are a few unconventional ways she shares that helped her tap into her inner spiritual power and that might help you here in Orange County:
Take time to pray and meditate. Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, meditation is a great exercise for your mental and spiritual health. It can help heal your body and bring about a sense of peace. Your energy will immediately raise to a higher frequency so you can connect with your spirit and relax. Being relaxed will allow you to receive love, happiness and the support from friends, family, and counselors.
Read books to discover your spirit. Take a look at the new age or spiritual self-help books. I know, you may be rolling your eyes right now. But these types of books wouldn’t be around (and selling well) if they didn’t truly help people. Would it really hurt to try?
Take spiritual classes, attend seminars or join a community. Some say that in order to grow we must learn. Lifelong learning is an important skill that will help us mature, heal and become more complete. Divorce and separation are difficult, and there are many seminars that can help you discover what it is particularly that is holding you back from connecting with spirit and moving forward. You can join a community of people that are going through something similar. Even social media sites have groups and forums that you might find peace in. You never know what will work until you try it. Finally, you could work with a spiritual mentor. One-on-one mentoring can help you move past the drama of divorce and help you put the pain behind you.
