Whether you're going through a divorce, modification, custody case, or any other sort of family law case, now or in the past, I know that the legal challenges are just part of the story.   I've got a network of people who work in various modalities to help people move through the emotions and practice better self-care.  I know that this can be one of the most difficult times of your life.  I hope some of the tips you read in the newsletter will make it easier for you.


Taking Care of Yourself Through Meditation
By Sara Ann

A lot of people don't meditate simply because they don't know how. However, meditation is healing for the body, mind, and soul. And, the good news is that you can’t really mess it up!  
In my opinion, there is no wrong way to meditate.  Everyone finds their own way that feels really good to them. The entire purpose is to allow you to connect with your heart.  
Here are two suggestions I always share with anyone desiring to add meditation into their daily rituals and isn’t quite sure how to do it.  

Start with ten minutes -  
Have you ever sat in silence with yourself for ten minutes?  It can feel like an eternity. I recommend setting a timer.  This way your mind can let go about the time.  Place your body in a very comfortable position, either sitting or laying down.  If you feel that sitting will be uncomfortable or distracting or you will fidget, then lay down.

Divorce and How To Help Your Kids
By Caroline Palmy

Hi, this is Caroline from Palmy Healing. 
I am a heart flow healer and love to help you open the doors to your heart so you can get back into the flow of love.

I had no idea who I was when my marriage broke apart at the end of 2008. I learned to heal from this breakup and reconnect with myself again.

I cleared and healed from that toxic relationship and learned to rise up, look after myself, and become more assertive.

First of all, warm hugs to you
. Going through a divorce can be challenging at times so allow yourself some self-care whenever possible, especially when you are also easing your kids through this life change. You are not alone, and allow yourself to reach out for help.

I myself went through a break up 9 years ago followed by 5 years of separation and divorce. My three children were 12, 8 and 5 at the time.

Fair Fighting in a Divorce
By Jeanni Jones, M. E., Registered Clinical Counselor

If you and your partner are divorcing amicably for the most part, then you already probably are communicating assertively.  You also probably don’t need to read this but it never hurts to read it anyway.

However, if this is not the case, please read on!  Whatever you do, remain respectful.  Yes, you may feel hurt and angry, but ripping into your ex will solve nothing and will simply mean you’ll be paying more legal fees for more visits when the two of you fail to compromise.

Even before the two of you and your lawyers meet, here is what you can do:

  1. If your feelings are running so strong, perhaps the first thing to do is get a counselor for yourself and ask him or her to help you formulate what you want and to talk about the anger and frustration. This way you don’t bring those heavy emotions to the negotiating table. Be sure to get this under control before your divorce proceedings actually begin.
  2. Know what you want before you begin and ask yourself, “Is it fair? Is it realistic? Is it negotiable?"  Try to think of several possible outcomes that would work for you before you sit down to talk or negotiate.  Be sure to write it down, give a copy to your lawyer in advance and bring a copy with you to the table.
