Coping with divorce: Adopting the idea of reincarnation may offer a new, healing perspective

Coping with divorce is one of the hardest things you may ever have to face. Forget the legal complexities. On an emotional and spiritual level, how do you know if you're doing the right thing?

“I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.” — Mother Theresa

The reason I'm writing about divorce on The Soulmate Site is because coping with divorce is an experience many people share — including folks who are seeking their soulmate.

Also, because healing from heartbreak and understanding our past relationships are important things to do before we seek our soulmates, so that we don't repeat the same relationship patterns again.

Divorce and your healing heart

Divorce advice is the domain of relationship and legal experts. Churches and family also weigh in on the topic. Making the choice to divorce is personal, gut-wrenching and complex.

“When you fall in a river, you're no longer a fisherman; you're a swimmer.” — Gene Hill

Part of coping with divorce is filtering the hailstorm of messages you receive from others, so that you can hear the whispers of your own heart.

Is a friend divorcing? Consider sharing this with them if you think it would ease their hearts.

Is divorce ‘bad karma’?

What I'm interested in sharing here, and what few talk about elsewhere, are the spiritual and karmic aspects of divorce, assuming that reincarnation is true, and that we play our love stories out over lifetimes.

What is karma?

“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” — Harriet Beecher Stowe

Spiritually inclined people coping with divorce may find that these ideas offer comfort and insight. Along with the counselors and legal experts who may also assist you, I hope that you find the following good food for thought.

I also hope that your heart sparks with the knowing that you are empowered during this challenging time, and that in the wake of fresh new beginnings, you may indeed, consciously create a soulmate.

Psychic Edgar Cayce

These ideas are not my flights of fancy. They were carefully excerpted from the book Many Mansions — The Edgar Cayce Story on Reincarnation by Gina Cerminara for your consideration.

Who is Edgar Cayce?

This information from the most documented American clairvoyant offers a unique view on divorce. If this resonates for you in any way, I encourage you to read more about the man and his work which is impossible to summarize on one web page.

Warning! The following information isn't for those who need easy answers. Yet, for those spirit-focused seekers who are coping with divorce, there is much here to consider.

Marriage and divorce: cosmic implications

According to the Cayce readings, marriage is the natural human state (not to say that important spiritual growth cannot take place without it). Also, the readings confirm that our marriage partners come to us from the ancient bonds of attraction.

“No marriage is a start on a clean slate. It's an episode of a story begun long before.”

The most important element in a good marriage? Unity of purpose. In fact, the readings have strong words for relationships that keep us from doing what we're here to do.

“When a relationship exists that prevents the purposes for which the entity entered...and there is no altering of it, is better that there be a disassociation.”

Coping with divorce? Take heart that legal, societal and religious laws appear, according to the readings, to matter little:

“If society wishes to make marriage indissoluble, well and good. If not, again well and good. Cosmic law will not be thrwarted by either system. If man fails to meet an obligation in one existence, he will be called to task in another.”

The readings often conveyed good reasons for divorce. On the other hand, treating marriage lightly wasn't advised.

“Knowing that by staying within marriage, there is much opportunity for growth. On the other hand, no institution should enslave people into unhealthy, miasmic, contorted relationships, and that selfless love should not be case before the swine of unregenerate, selfishness... divorce is as sound and sane and decent a procedure as the dissolution of any other legal contract.”

When is divorce advised?

If you're facing divorce, here's some information that may make coping with divorce easier for you.

The Cayce readings frequently counseled against divorce. Simply because if a lesson is to be learned through difficulty, sooner or later, one must find the strength to meet it. On the other hand, many approved of divorce.

Cases where divorce was advised:

  • Those in which there were no children, or if there were, where the children would benefit from the divorce
  • Those in which the karmic lesson of the marriage had been learned, or
  • Those in which one of the partners of the marriage had so badly met the situation as to be dragging the other down.

Want more?

Many Mansions has rich information about marriage, divorce, infidelity, children, health and much, much more. If you're coping with divorce today, I also really like: Woman's Divorce: Helping women survive divorce and rebuild their lives and the Imago approach to relationships.

Bottom line of all this?

The (karmic) law of equilibrium is always working. It appears, like many things in life, that the question of divorce is a matter of balance.

What to do? Read, gather, grow. Search deep in your heart. Is divorce right for you? How can you best cope? Only you know the answer to that question.

Coping with divorce might be one of the hardest things you ever have to do. Whatever types of support you choose, know that there is life after divorce, and that if you continue on a path to growth, you will heal your heart, emerge even stronger and (if you choose!) find and fall for your soulmate.

I hope you've found new ideas on coping with divorce!
