Seven spiritual laws to help you see divorce as a gain rather than a loss.
BY: Debbie Ford
1)The Law of Acceptance:
The first and possibly the most important spiritual law is thateverything is as it should be
. Nothing occurs by accident, and there are no coincidences. We are always evolving, whether we are aware of it or not. And our lives are divinely designed for each one of us to get exactly what we need to support our own unique evolutionary process.
2)The Law of Surrender:
When we stop resisting and surrender to the situation exactly as it is, things begin to change
. Resistance is the number one culprit in denying us our right to heal. We resist out of fear that if we let go, if we surrender, our lives will go out of control or we will be faced with circumstances that we can't handle. When we are willing to look at our situation and admit that we don't know how to fix it, we are ready to get the help we need.
3)The Law of Divine Guidance:
God will do for you what you cannot do for yourself
. When you get out of your own way and let go of your defenses, you become humble. Humility is the doorway through which the Divine can walk into your life. Without humility, we believe we can do it ourselves. Without humility, our false sense of pride, or ego, prohibits us from seeing the entire situation with clear eyes. Our egos remain in charge until we step outside our righteous belief that we are independent and separate beings. As long as this myth is intact, we keep the door closed to our higher wisdom.
4)The Law of Responsibility:
With divine guidance, we can look at exactly how we participated in and co-created our divorce drama
. We can begin to take responsibility for our entire situation and make peace with our past. We can see how we have chosen the perfect partner to teach us the perfect lessons. Once we have asked God to come into our lives and guide us, we begin to heal.
