If you’re confused about whether to get divorced — and you’re hesitating because you don’t want to hurt your kids or you’re just confused about what the right decision is spiritually, financially or emotionally — here is a pretty interesting “hack” to gauge your gut intuition.

Why bother consulting your intuition? Shouldn’t you soberly review a list of pros and cons and trust your rational mind alone to work through this decision?

The rational mind is great. You should certainly think logically and soberly about an impactful decision, like getting divorced, and to consult a California divorce law firm, before you take any action. But your intuition can also give you much needed feedback and insight.

Your intuition taps into subconscious and unconscious processes in the brain and gives you different kinds of feedback. Ideally, you want to make a decision that resonates with both your head and your heart.

In any event, here’s how to measure your intuition. Grab two index cards: write “yes” on one of them and “no” on the other. Then place them on your refrigerator with some magnets. Then leave the room.

The next time you come back into the kitchen – ideally, at least several hours later – you will have forgotten about the index cards, consciously. As soon as you see the index cards, grab one that pertains to your immediate feeling about whether to get divorced or not. If you grab “yes,” that means you want to get divorced. If you grab “no,” that means you don’t want to get divorced.

No matter where you are in the process, or what your intuition tells you, you might benefit a lot from getting clarity about your options by calling a California divorce lawyer. Get in touch with the Dinnebier & Demmerle team right now to set up a case evaluation.
