How to Find Peace and Happiness After a Divorce – 3 Steps to Rediscovering Joy

self-help

Note from M2bH: No one enters a marriage expecting it to fall apart. No one wants a marriage to fail—at least not at the beginning. There are steps that can be taken to help heal wounds and resolve issues and return love to the marital relationship. We encourage you to take those steps.

But some marriages are entered into inadvisably. Sometimes people change and love withers and abusive language and behavior replaces the thoughtful attention that defined the relationship in its happier years.

What then?

There are often feelings of shame and embarrassment, regret and disappointment, loneliness and a sense of failure that follow a divorce. But unhappiness is not your destined lot in life for having severed a marital relationship. Happiness can return. It can be rebuilt and rediscovered.

For those of you who have gone through a divorce and still struggle to find your way back to joy, today’s post is a guest write-up from Jade Gallagher meant to offer a way back to happiness.

Enjoy…

 

There is no need to feel like your life has reached a dead end just because your marriage is over. You need to take the positive view that you can and will find life after divorce.

If you can develop some good survival strategies to get you through the initial pain of separation, this will definitely help to set you on the path to finding happiness again.

Let’s look at how to get through your divorce in the best way possible. How do you approach this situation in a positive way? Why is it important to create a reliable support network? There are also some tips on how to re-launch a better version of your old self.

Don’t subscribe to the stereotype

Getting divorced can be a traumatic and confrontational experience, but it is fair to say that not all divorcees hate each other after they have officially ended their marital relationship.

There are many different reasons why people get divorced. Specialists can help people sort through unique divorce issues. From fighting couples who have fallen out of love and friendship to those whose marriages have become verbally or physically violent.

Divorcing in a loving and compassionate way is not always possible. However, it is useful to attempt to find an amicable solution where possible. It will make it easier to recover from your divorce and get your life back on track as quickly as possible.

Reach out to others

If there was a simple strategy to help you cope with the feelings of pain and loss that you can experience with divorce, we would all be doing it, but there is rarely a magic solution to such a complex relationship problem.

One of the most important aspects of going through a divorce is being able to rely on a good support network of family and friends who will help you get through this difficult period in your life.

It is often not about the quantity of friends and family you can lean on that counts, as the quality matters more. Even if you only have one really good friend who offers a strong shoulder to cry on when you need it, this can be more valuable than a whole group of friends who offer some support but don’t always know what to say to you.

You should be prepared for some old friends to go missing when you get divorced as this can, and does, happen. Focus your efforts on finding the right people to reach out to, so that you get a great support network that you can truly rely on.

A new you

We all change in subtle ways over the years and if you had been married for a long while, you are almost certainly not the same person who fell in love all those years ago.

Getting divorced means you go through quite a life-altering change from being one-half of a couple to becoming a single person again. This can cause an identity crises that is difficult to adjust to.

Work on finding a way to redefine yourself and become the person you want to be now that you are on your own and, frankly speaking, have more personal freedom to explore new options.

Psychologists suggest that exploring previously untapped hobbies and interests is a good strategy for removing any feelings of grief after divorce.

You should find that a period of self-exploration can be very liberating and exciting. Taking up new hobbies and interests is a great way to combat any feelings of isolation that you might be experiencing.

Take a positive approach to your current situation and your future prospects and there is every chance that you can find happiness again after your divorce.

Jade Gallagher went through a messy divorce 18 months ago but is now stronger, and happier than ever before. She supports other women going through divorce (as well as the occasional guy) online through social media sites and her writing.

Your Spiritual Growth Mindset: The Secret to Manifesting Success

self-help

You may have heard about Growth Mindset, but exactly what is a Spiritual Growth Mindset?

Until recently, I associated mindset with having a rah-rah ring to it. Perhaps it is because I’ve attended a number of mindset classes whereby success coaches would use highly motivational tones for raising the energy levels in the room. “Yes, you can do it!” they would shout in a rallying voice.

The problem is that mostly, after the day of such events, I had observed that the energy spikes don’t last. They fizzle out. I would return to the same energy levels as before and not much has changed.

Still, I resonate with the idea of a growth mindset.

As an avid learner, I find myself very interested in self development. I enjoy learning, reading and upgrading myself. Instead of personal grooming, I find myself more obsessive over personal growth!

After reflecting over, I would like to propose the idea of developing a spiritual growth mindset, and not just a growth mindset. A spiritual growth mindset would be one that is more sustaining, conscious and expansive. Let me share some of my thoughts below.

Spiritual Growth Mindset: Set the Intention

A spiritual mindset supports the intention to lead a soulfully conscious life. Now that you are awakening in consciousness, you would like to view life with a spiritually aligned lens. Usually people understand mindset as a set of beliefs or attitude. The beliefs let you frame the situation that you are in. They determine your perception, of how you see things. Whether you interpret things to be positive or negative, your mindset has a huge part to play in it.

A spiritual mindset is not just about having a set of uplifting beliefs. Rather, it also refers to a set of spiritually aligned beliefs that influence your reactions and behavior. Your mindset is a frame of mind that helps you move towards a set of outcomes. Your beliefs are framed by your awareness of your spiritual nature. They guide you in terms of making conscious choices that support your growth.

Beliefs are made up of thoughts. When thoughts become conditioned and habitual, you define yourself by them and who you can become. They influence you at the identity level. Many people struggle because they fail to examine the beliefs that they had unconsciously created or made in the past.

Problems arise when they identify with mistaken ideas. If you are hoping to discover your true nature or find out who you really are (the “I” or “I am”), you will need to shed off the layers of untruths. These untruths are likely to prevent you from reaching your highest potential.

Which Mindset Ae You Having? Fixed or Growth Mindset?

Carol Dweck is a professor of psychology at Stanford University, who has done extensive research over the last 30 years on how thoughts determine success. She makes the distinction between having a growth and a fixed mindset.

In a fixed mindset, you believe that success is based on innate ability such as intelligence and talent. You see them as “fixed” traits. And so, you spend your time proving your intelligence or talent instead of developing them.

With a fixed mindset, you are inclined to believe that you cannot achieve success where you are not smart enough. If you believe that you are not born with the right genes or traits, you could decide to adopt a defeatest attitude because it is as if there is nothing that you can do to change your fate. As a result, you limit your learning and become unwilling to invest in your own growth.

Conversely, in a growth mindset, you believe that success is based on hard work, learning, training and persistence. Even if you have brains and talent, you understand that they are just the starting point. You have an “incremental view” that is behind your love for learning and an attitude of resilience.

In a growth mindset, your focus is less on the outcome but more on what can be achieved by taking part in the learning process. You also understand that no one has ever scaled great heights —not Mozart, Picasso or Michael Jordan—without years of consistent practice. You enjoy modelling success so that you can up your game.

What her research has essentially proven is this: Your altitude depends on your attitude!

Modelling The Success Mindset For Spiritual Growth

Mindset is something that all great CEOS, successful entrepreneurs, thought leaders and Olympic athletes know. They have mindset coaches to help them achieve higher and higher breakthroughs and they also surround themselves with mentors, peers and team members with a positive growth mentality. It’s how glass ceilings are shattered and new records are broken every other day.

Making the choice to view and approach life from a spiritual angle, would involve developing a spiritual mindset. And so, it is holistic. In my opinion, true success has to incorporate spirituality.

Develop a Spiritual Growth Mindset for Manifesting Success and Abundance 

I have since found that developing a positive mindset as not an overnight thing. It takes study, reading, attending classes, integrating belief changes and upgrades in energy system on an on-going basis.

What is Spiritual Growth Mindset

The Secret to Manifesting True Success lies in developing a Spiritual Growth Mindset! 

There are energy or visioning tools that you can use for leveraging the power of your mind. 

A spiritual growth mindset is developed through a process of up leveling and alchemy. You make it a consistent practice and applying follow throughs in your every day life. It involves mindfulness, directing your thoughts and with awareness about Universal laws, such as the Law of Attraction, Law of Karma, Law of Non-attachment and so on.

A Spiritual Growth mindset is one that helps you to up-level your life, aids you in achieving overall success and supports you in your soul growth. 

With the power of a Spiritual Growth Mindset, you work on manifesting success that is aligned with your soul purpose!

How You Can Let Go of Past Trauma and Claim Your Power Back

self-help

Have you ever wondered how you can let go of past trauma, so that it no longer holds you back from creating the life that you want in the future?

Living with past trauma as if it is still present, can keep you in repetitive patterns.

Your body remembers the past trauma too and it is likely the reason why you find yourself having the same emotional reactions as if the past is happening now.

The same state of paralysis, anxiety and fear.

The same chills in your body, heart racing and churning in your stomach.

By being caught in the past, you can find life a struggle in the present.

You’ve got dreams and goals that you wish to fulfil. Maybe it is to align with your highest potential, to have the best relationship with your spouse ever, to run a thriving business or to manifest the most amazing life ever. Whatever it is, holding on past trauma can limit your chances of success. As a result, you could be feeling bitter, disappointed and helpless, You have the belief that there is nothing you can do to erase the past and to change your destiny.

I’d like to qualify. The traumas you’ve encountered might not have been big major events to begin with. Note that what feels traumatic for one person may not be the same for another. It might have been an incident such as being ostracised by your friends when you were in play school or being criticised for being “not good enough”. Notwithstanding, they were certainly instances that had left an indelible imprint on your subconscious.

Well, in case you consider your future ruined due to an unhappy past, there is hope. I’d like to share how it is very possible to let go of past trauma and to rewrite the story of an unhappy childhood. When you do so, it opens up new possibilities for you in manifesting a more empowering set of outcomes.

Remembering the Unhappy Past

When I first heard the suggestion that it is possible to truly let go of the past, I had found it ludicrous. After all, the past happened in the way as I remembered it. How can it be possible to change it?

You may have the same doubt too. The details of your past, as you recall them, may be somewhat fuzzy but if your memory gets jogged, you can still recall what had taken place — the painful emotional betrayal by someone you had trusted, the tragic loss of love, the cruel rejection that had left you abandoned, the psychological fear of being left behind, and so on.

The hurt. The sadness. The anger. Feeling rejection. Unloved. The pain that cuts the heart like a knife.

So how can something heart-wrenching that has already happened in the past be reversed?

As I discovered and now having worked with many women from across the world, I had found it entirely possible to let go of the past.

What is Your Past Trauma About? 

An attachment to a negative childhood story narrative keeps the emotional drama alive. Instead of recalling the past as it is, you experience the disruptions as if they are in the now. Your childhood pain gets amplified each time you retell the story with belief and emotion. Stories told over and over again, become self-fulfilling prophecies.

Repeated often enough, the story that you spin in a narrative creates your reality. It determines the quality of your living. As you apply your belief in it, it becomes part of your identity. When this happens, it is possible to feel lost without this story. Which leads to creating the problem of attachment.

All my life has turned out to be a disaster. I am just not made for relationships. I am just not good with people. I’m just not good enough for anything…and that includes love from my parents. I had felt unwanted ever since I was born.

It’s exactly what happened to Regina.

Regina Needs to Let Go of Her Past Trauma

When Regina first reached out to me for help with clearing her money blocks, she went on and on about how her life suck. She blamed her spouse for their money problems, marriage breakdown and what he had done to destroy her life. Regina also complained about how she never got support from anyone; least of all, her mother.

She talked about never being “good enough” and how it hurt her so much to have a mother who had abandoned her when she was a child. Regina declared with some finality, “everyone is bound to leave me at some point”. It became apparent to me that she had an inner child that is wounded.

After going on for 45 minutes, she finally paused. It was when I asked her, “Regina, do you feel like you’re in charge of your life?” She turned and looked at me in surprise, as though I hadn’t been listening all this time. “Well, no,” she replied impatiently. “Or I wouldn’t be here talking to you.”

What Happens When You Let Go of Past Trauma

Specific events took place the way they did. Still, it is important to realise that the past only exists as a memory. It is comprised of a collection of thoughts. The past is simply a construct of your mind. Holding on to a disempowering story can put you in victimhood. What’s more, the conclusions arising from the past that you have made about the world or about yourself may not be true.

Using an inside-out approach, you can change the energy around your childhood story and how you are perceiving it. In reclaiming your power, what would help is to recognise that you have choice. You can decide what you would like to feel and think. Also, you get to decide the story that you would like to place attention on.

Releasing how you feel and think about the past creates the space for a shift to take place. Indicative signs are experienced in your body. They can be any one of the following signs…
– a dissolution of sharp pain over the heart
– a reduction in weight on the shoulders
– a reduction in lower back pain
– tension in the head disappearing and so on.

A positive change experienced in the body is enough to let you know that a shift has taken place internally.

Upon release, you can find it easier to integrate the lessons that serve you for growth.

At a subconscious level, you are invited to change some of the beliefs that you had formed in the past.

It is in the realisation that you are able to turn a story
from pain into power,
from rejection into love,
and from insecurity into confidence.

At this point, your whole body embodies a transformational shift.

Let go of the past quote

Let Go of Past Trauma and Rewrite a New Story 

If the life you are living is not in the way you like it to be, step back and review the story in your mind that you have been investing your energy on. Make sure the narrative is serving you. Because if it is not, you can always change it. Even if it is about the past.

Rather than dwell in blame, be aware that the past holds lessons that you can embrace. While you can’t change what has happened but you can certainly choose to be free of the past trauma that has been keeping you stuck. At an energetic level, you can rewrite your childhood story. (If you need more info, find out here).

As Tom Robbins, a best-selling novelist, says, “It is never too late to have a happy childhood.”

Work on inner child healing or releasing any pain or trauma from the past. It serves no one when you hold on to it. Instead, consider letting go of your unhappy past and rewriting your childhood story to one that serves you with lessons learnt.

What ultimately matters is how you intend to end the story of this existence — on an empowering note or a disempowering one? You have the power to choose. And it is up to you to take charge of the pen.

The rest of your autobiography is still unwritten and the power to write a great ending lies with you.
