Healing Heartbreak: A Soul Growth Story

By angela
January 24, 2024

Years ago and without warning, my high school sweetheart waltzed back into my life. The rush of emotions was overwhelming. The flame between us was suddenly rekindled, and I believed that the love we had shared all those years ago was enough to sustain us the second time around.

I was partly correct. This new version of our relationship lasted almost seven years—marked by highs and lows—until his duplicity, lurking beneath the surface, abruptly revealed itself.

The energy of love carries immense power. It can shape our lives in ways we may never anticipate. In its unique way, love serves as a wellspring of joy, comfort, unity and inspiration.

It can also be our greatest source of heartache.

As far as stories of betrayal go, this one is much like any other. Two people meet, love blossoms, then one of them begins to feel dissatisfied and they stray, seeking the excitement of a fresh romance.

Kinda boring, actually. Predictable, if you will.

The more compelling story is conveyed in how I reshaped my life in the wake of infidelity. How did I move forward once my heart was cracked wide open? I can only answer this by looking back. It’s not like I had a game plan for recovery. At the time, I was relying solely on intuition to get me through.

In the immediate aftermath of the breakup, faced with the truth of his deceit, my entire being felt like a deflated balloon. The grief cut deep. My energy was at Level Zero and mental clarity eluded me.

Still, early on—even through this fog—I received a divine message, when my inner Brightsider assured me that “one day, I’ll thank him for this.”

(Honestly, back then I didn’t believe this at all. Thank him? Nah. I couldn’t see it. There were moments when I could barely see my way into the next day, yet alone making my way to some distant point of appreciation. Still, I held hope that one day, I would indeed be grateful.)

Love and pain are intertwined. The emotional investment we make in love relationships can turn into pain when things go awry. So in those weeks after the split, while the tender ache of heartbreak lingered, the sorrow became the driving force behind my evolution.

As it turned out, I now see that I loosely journeyed through the 5 Stages of Grief. I found myself bouncing around between the stages in no particular order. At times I repeated some of them. Occasionally, I experienced a combination of two or more: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance.

In hindsight, I recognize how I instinctively slipped into an energetic space that was all mine, downsizing my vibration as I (unknowingly) prepared to transform. I kept on with the basics: kids, work, home, family. Strengthened my base. Tapped into that eternal source of Love that we all have access to. I slowly began to distinguish between “being in love” and “being in the energy of love.”

This was the very key to my transformation. Love. I had an abundance of it all around me. I began to get real cozy with it and before long, the ache in my heart had become smothered with love.

Heartbreak can be a powerful catalyst for personal growth, and this experience was no exception. The pain became my teacher, guiding me towards a deeper understanding of myself.

And yes, I eventually thanked him.✨

“The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me.” ~Ram Dass 🙌🏽

This week’s Soul Guidance provides a template for us to navigate through the wake of grief and loss. I hope you vibe with it like I did!
