Healing from betrayal is very different than healing from other types of life crises like the death of a loved one, a natural disaster, disease or a tragic accident. Those crises can involve an intense sense of loss, anguish, pain and grief (I know because I’ve been there) but there are additional challenges when it comes to healing from the betrayal of a family member, partner or friend (unfortunately, I’ve been here too).
The pain of my own experiences with betrayal led me to a PhD program in Transpersonal Psychology (the psychology that integrates spiritual self-development, transformation and human potential). I wanted to know what helps people transform and what holds them back, what encourages growth and what keeps people stuck. Using that information along with 27 years of health, personal development, mindset and lifestyle coaching, my clients and I experienced firsthand how certain processes led to healing-physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
This path next led to a PhD study and writing a dissertation on how women experience betrayal-what allows them to achieve a state of posttraumatic growth (PTG) which is a positive and healing outcome from a trauma…or what keeps them from moving forward.
The study showed that healing from betrayal is very possible and is also very different than healing from other crises. This led to a new term, coined Post Betrayal Transformation™ (PBT)™
What happened next left me speechless.
Women were interviewed on their own experiences and while they were all so different, my study showed how every one of them went through the same five stages from the moment they experienced the shock of betrayal to the moment they knew they’d healed. This led to the discovery of a new model:
The Five Stages from Betrayal to Post Betrayal Transformation™ (PBT™).
I asked them what could have helped them heal faster, how did their bodies respond to the shock of betrayal, what health challenges did they face, what did they do, what helped them heal, what support did they need, what resources would have helped, what do they see so clearly now and so much more…
Everything they shared, combined with researching over 100 studies (this was the not-fun-part J) as well as my own experience was organized into a new program designed to help you go from betrayal to breakthrough.
When you learn how to heal from betrayal
physically • mentally • emotionally • spiritually
it can transform you.
There’s a process you must go through to heal your body, mind and spirit and when you do, you’re stronger, wiser and more unshakable than you ever thought possible.
It’s available to you and it would be an honor to help you experience your own breakthrough.
Introduction: From Betrayal to Breakthrough
During week 1, you’ll be introduced to a predictable and proven model of stages when going from betrayal to breakthrough. You’ll also learn why healing from betrayal is very different than healing from other life crises (like the death of a loved one, a natural disaster, etc.) and what you need to know and do to set yourself up for success.
Crisis-The Greatest Catalyst to Create Change
While a shake-up can completely unravel us, it provides an opportunity to lay a clean foundation to build something entirely new. That new foundation to build something bigger, better and more beautiful never would have presented itself if the old foundation still “worked.” Just as the rain reveals the rainbow and the caterpillar needs to go through a metamorphosis to become the beautiful butterfly, you’ll learn exactly how the breakdown must happen in order to lead to your most magnificent and vibrant life…and this understanding will lay the groundwork for the weeks ahead.
How to Change Your Mind to Change Your Life
Your thoughts create your behaviors, which create your habits, which create your experiences, which create your results, which create your lifestyle and create your life. Lasting change, especially after a crisis, needs to start with a new way to think. It’s likely you’ve got some destructive, painful and unhealthy thoughts creating a belief system that doesn’t serve you and we’re taking that on. You’ll learn how to rewire those toxic and painful thoughts while learning a new way to think and feel to match the new version of you that’s slowly emerging.
Finding and Adjusting to A New Normal
Chances are you’re in some unfamiliar territory these days with so many shifts happening. Things are different-the people in your life may need some upgrading, the places you go may need some updating and the things you do may need some adjustments too. How do you find what’s best for you at this stage and settle into a new normal? I’ll show you how so you don’t slip back into old, destructive and negative beliefs, habits, behaviors and actions.
Healing, Rebirth and a New Worldview
Healing from betrayal happens on so many levels-physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. This healing is due to your willingness to make changes to the way you think, feel and live. When you do, a stronger, more empowered, healthier, wiser and unshakable version of you is birthed. Get ready for a new worldview (a new way to see the world) because your changes caused you to become different, in the best kind of ways.
Wrap-Up / What’s Next
How do you maintain the changes you’ve made? How do you prevent slipping back into old, familiar (and often destructive) habits? I’ll show you how to prevent sabotage (what my TEDx talk was based on). I’ll also show you how to create the simple, daily habits that help maintain momentum which will keep you moving forward. It’s time for your most exciting and fulfilling next chapter and I’m with you every step of the way!
