Your Divorce is Not a Death w/Michelle Dempsey

Uncategorized Jan 20, 2021

So often, when thinking of divorce, we think of it in the same way we would a death. However, there is no comparison between the two, and thinking this way will only make the process harder on us than it needs to be.

While it’s normal to grieve the end of a marriage, we have to remind ourselves that post-divorce, we’re still alive, and that means we have a ton of opportunities to create beautiful lives for ourselves.

However, that can be easier said than done. In a world so determined to equate death with divorce, how can we see the silver linings of the situation? How can we shift the way we’ve been taught to think of divorce entirely?

In this episode, Founder of Moms Moving On and Coach & Certified Divorce Specialist (CDS®), Michelle Dempsey shares how to stop viewing divorce as a death.

Why Our Goals Need Intentions Behind Them

Uncategorized Jan 13, 2021

When we step into a new year, we all have a renewed focus on our goals and the things we want to accomplish. The challenge is, when we think about our goals, we miss out on the part that allows us to show up as our most empowered and confident selves, intention. 

If we want our goals to have a purpose, they have to be backed up by intention, by something other than an outcome or accomplishment. We need both goals and intentions so we can focus on what we want, but also so that we can enjoy the journey to that goal. 

What is the objective of an intention? How do we combine a goal and an intention so that we’re living in both our masculine and feminine energy? In this episode, I talk about the magical combination of goals and intentions.

Why Feminine Energy Is the Secret to All Our Power

Uncategorized Dec 30, 2020

Feminine energy is one of the most misunderstood concepts in our society, but it’s also one of the most powerful things we all possess. We interpret femininity as something weak, and we miss out on all the good that comes with it. 

Very often, we lean more into our masculine energy, focusing more on doing than on being, which leads to us feeling depleted and disconnected from ourselves. 

It’s time for us to start recognizing the power, beauty, and strength that comes with our feminine energy, and use it to enrich every part of our lives. 

How do we surrender to the flow of the feminine? Why is self-care such an important aspect of femininity, and what are the ways we can take care of ourselves across mind, body, spirit? 

In this episode, I talk about leaning into the feminine, and why it’s so critical right now.

Emerging From a High-Conflict Divorce with a Better Relationship With Yourself w/Karen McMahon

Uncategorized Dec 23, 2020

Healing from a high-conflict divorce is one of the biggest challenges we can ever face. When our former partner has narcissistic capabilities, it feels like the wounds of that relationship are too deep and impossible to work through, but you can heal. You can come out of it with the tools that will attract the life you want.

Often in the desire to be loved, we abandon ourselves by giving so much to an unworthy partner. The journey to self-healing requires us to dig into the root of those wounds to truly heal them. It’s a painful journey, but a very necessary one. 

What are some of the challenges we experience in high conflict divorces? Why is a high-conflict divorce a powerful opportunity for us to heal our emotional wounds? What do these relationships teach us?

We’ve all experienced adversity, trauma, tragedy, and significant stress in our lives. The reason we’re able to adapt to these situations is resilience. It’s how we take our power back. It’s the difference between going through something and growing through it.
