Divorce isn’t just the breakdown of a relationship, it’s also an emotionally distressing experience. When we go through the significant trauma of a breakup or a divorce, we trigger an initial emotional trauma, along with narratives and limiting beliefs they created. 


We have a hard time recovering from divorce because it requires us to face and address the micro-traumas that contribute to and compound the bigger trauma of divorce.  


We need to go deeper with our divorce trauma because it points to patterns that are keeping us stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior, including our marriages. How does that initial micro-trauma affect our lives well into adulthood? How do we uncover the stories we created about ourselves so we can heal them? 


In this episode, I’m joined by renowned “Conscious Co-Parenting Coach”, Dorcy Pruter. We talk about how we can heal from the trauma of divorce and all the other traumas we’ve experienced. 


Taking responsibility is the first step of forgiveness. -Dorcy Pruter


3 Things You’ll Love About This Episode 


  1. How to overcome patterns of blame and fear
    We’re always operating from two filters and two levels of consciousness, our higher selves and our lower selves. High consciousness is love, forgiveness and responsibility.  Low consciousness is fear, victim mindset, blame. How we move through a traumatic experience is determined by which filter we view our divorce through. 
  2. How to take responsibility instead of passing blame.
    Everything in our lives is a manifestation of what we believe we deserve. There is power in taking responsibility for how we showed up in the marriage; and the fact that we sourced our marriages from our own limiting beliefs. 
  3. What to do when micro-trauma resurfaces. 
    True healing isn’t a matter of things not hurting anymore. Painful things will continue to come up, but when we do the work, we’re able to recognize the trauma and the stories behind them. It also allows us to recover faster because we have the tools to work through trauma.
