Did you know that when you go through a breakup you experience acute emotional stress that can cause the left ventricle of the heart to be paralyzed?
Breakups challenge us on many levels: mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and maybe even financially.
Relationships at their core are about safety, security, love, and acceptance – and so when that core is broken… It brings up a lot of our stuff.
Likely stuff that has been lurking, waiting to be processed, but you were too busy managing the relationships to manage your own processing.

I believe breakups are key moments in our lives that give us the opportunity to deeply reflect on ourselves, our emotions, our actions, and gain clarity about what we truly want in our relationships.
What if you looked at your relationships as a sacred spiritual practice?
A spiritual practice is simply a process that promotes the experience of having an open heart.
Your breakup? It’s here to teach you something. As long as you keep your heart open to learning.
It doesn’t matter if the break up was sudden, whether is had been carefully crafted over a long period of time, whether you received the news or whether you delivered it – you are going to go through a wide range of emotions.
Shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance, and hope.
What else is in that emotional cocktail? Regret.
Here’s what you can do if you are regretting breaking up with someone:
Accept that it’s part of the process.
When you’re in a relationship a magical third thing is created and that’s the relationship between you and the other person. So when you go through a breakup that magical thing is no longer a thing.
Get clear on why you made the decision.
Journal it out. Write down what brought you here. Reflect on that list. Yes, the relationship was magical at one point in time and there was also likely a level of misalignment, which is why you left. You need to sift through all of the data. The good, the bad, and the ugly so that you can get clear on how YOU can change moving forward.
Get clear on why you’re currently regretting the decision.
What’s your desire? What do you wish you had right now that you don’t? The security blanket of a relationship? The physical touch? The drama? Get clear on exactly what energy you want access to right now. (Hint: you can find that energy somewhere else)
Move the energy
Practice non attachment and if you’re stuck in sadness, get out of the house! Go on a walk, go on a run, go to yoga, go dancing! Sadness, judgment, and blame are all sticky emotions that exhaust our heads and then our bodies. You need to manually override your emotions and get out of your head and into your body. When you do, you access joy that you won’t regret it!
