In a post below the couple's separation announcement on Gwyneth Paltrow's website, healer Dr Habib Sadeghi explained what was meant by the phrase "conscious uncoupling".
"A conscious uncoupling is the ability to understand that every irritation and argument was a signal to look inside ourselves and identify a negative internal object that needed healing," he wrote.
"Because present events always trigger pain from a past event, it’s never the current situation that needs the real fixing. It’s just the echo of an older emotional injury.
"If we can remain conscious of this during our uncoupling, we will understand it’s how we relate to ourselves internally as we go through an experience that’s the real issue, not what’s actually happening."
