DIVORCE MEDITATION AUDIO

Divorce is one of the most stressful events and challenging times a person can experience. Life as you know it is upended, the future is unclear and that’s scary. Separating your lives is painful.

 

Feelings of hurt, anger, sadness can be overwhelming. It’s easy to feel lost, stuck, confused.

And yet, at the same time that you are swirling in all of these emotions and upheavals, you are tasked to continue on at work and at home all while making big decisions that have implications for your life and your children’s lives for years to come.

Caught in this storm of stress and emotions, the primitive part of your brain can take over; hunkering down, avoiding, or lashing out. While this primitive response to a threat is natural, it’s not going to help you calm down, get centered, and create a plan to move forward.

You need to be able to shift from a threat response to a challenge response. You need to be able to rise to the challenge and function at your best when life has served up its worst.

How can as little as 10 minutes of meditation a day play a role in this transformation?

Consistent meditation, even for 10, 15, or 20 minutes a day can help you connect to a sense of calm and safety. It can help you shift your attention from the external world to your internal experience in the moment. In this way, you may feel more grounded and whole, rather than fragmented and confused.

As you connect to yourself, in a calm, accepting, and soothing way, you will feel more centered.

As you feel more centered, you can get in touch with your true self, your goodness, your wisdom, your deepest intentions, and values.

As you build this calm internal space to guard against the storm that is outside and around you, you can find your highest values and best self. This is the part of you that can guide your decisions and your path forward.

This is why I have created for you a meditation series specific to this challenging journey in your life. I want you to have a tool to help you access the part of yourself that can rise to the challenges of this difficult time. This tool can be helpful to you whether you have never meditated before or meditate regularly.
