Recently I was talking with someone who was going through a divorce. Most often when we have life challenges it affects us on a deeper and spiritual level, leaving us feeling spiritually depleted, confused and unsure of our lives and how to move forward and heal ourselves and our lives.
We had a nice conversation and I offered a few suggestions of things I thought would be helpful, things I found helped me in my own life.
My first suggestion will always be meditation, as meditation in itself is always healing. She had indicated that she could not seem to meditate, so I offered a few suggestions for meditation and suggested she try a candle meditation. In case you did not happen to read my post about candle meditation, you can access that post here.
When I was in a similar place, one of the first books I was guided to was “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. I suggested she read this book, as it was helpful to me when I was on my own journey to healing.
A few other suggestions were to journal to help her process her feelings. Journaling is so profound and will help us process and heal our feelings as well as to help us to have clarity about our lives. In case you missed my post about journaling, you can access it here.
I also suggested spending time in nature as nature is also healing in itself. One of my favorite things to do is to just be in nature and I feel very fortunate that in the area where I live, there are many parks one can frequent. Nature is always on my list to help rejuvenate my spirit. In case you missed that post, you can read it here.
Whatever is going on in your life, healing is always available, if we listen to our inner voice and move toward things that feed our spirit. Another suggestion I had was to take time to do something she enjoyed. When we do things that resonate for our soul, we will feel better and be happier in our life. It could be simple, like an art class, or reading a book that we love, or dancing. Just make sure that you take time for you, regardless of things that may be going on in your life. We do not need to be in a place of life changes or events to experience depletion of our spirit. When we take care of ourselves, we will always feel better and have better health. Healing is available to all of us.
