Dumped, divorced, ghosted…

All painful.

Also, useful.

I don’t mean to be flippant about what has happened. I’ve been through some bad breakups, and I know how truly devastating they can by.

Maybe this isn’t your first rodeo, either.

Maybe you realize that eventually you will feel better. That doesn’t necessarily make it any easier now.

You see, I’m not here to tell you something that is going to make you feel better. I’m not trying to put a bandage on our booboo.

I’m going for a paradigm shift here.

What did I mean when I wrote useful?

This is an opportunity to access something powerful. Something deep.

It’s as if a terrible storm has swept through your life, and fires burned away the entrance to a cave that was once hidden.

If you choose to go into this mysterious portal, it will take you closer to the center of who you are.

You can get near that raw, real, and alive part of life. That pulsing hum that emanates from the core of your being.

Something about having our heart broken gives us greater access to the Soul.

Perhaps it’s that all of our normal walls and masks and mechanisms have been temporarily disarmed or destroyed?

Most of us will try to run from the pain. To numb it. Avoid it. Distract.

And sometimes this is exactly what we need to do. Otherwise, we feel, we’ll be completely overwhelmed by the experience.

But… If you can manage the discomfort, confusion, and chaos, there is treasure to be found here.

That treasure is a glimpse of the greater truth of who you are.

If you can resist covering up that cave entrance, that portal to your inner world, for a little while, you will add dimension to your world.

By exploring the depths of our emotional world, we gain Depth.

This depth is a source of power.
