A Letter From Your Wife -
You will go through divorce. You have my permission to do it. You needed to do it. You didn't know.
You will meet a woman. You will know it's her. You will see her picture and realize you've been looking for her your whole life. You thought you found her the first time but that was for a different purpose. You had to go through that experience to have your children and give them the same opportunity you had. You came out the other side with a new understanding of yourself and the people around you.
You will marry this woman. She will teach you more. She will support you. She loves you and she wrote you this letter. It echoes many of the same sentiments you'll read in this blog.
Here's the letter from Elaine.
Going down the spiritual path? Good freaking luck. You'll need it. For so many the “spiritual path” seems like a good idea. I’m not saying it’s not, but just be ready for your life to change.
Whether you’re financially secure, or not, won’t matter. I take that back. For some it WILL matter. You’ll lose everything, along with your sanity. Talking about losing things, let me give you a heads up on other things you’ll lose: Friends, jobs, houses, and maybe even relationships with family members. Sound awful? It is. But now let me give you what you can gain: Friends, jobs, houses, and maybe even relationships with family members.
Going down the spiritual path is not for the faint-hearted. It’s actually for those that are outrageously strong and courageous to figure it all out. It’s facing the skeletons in their closet, and the possibilities of losing face with those that once looked up to them. Going through the layers of purging isn’t easy. When ascending, which is ultimately a rise in vibration, things that don’t serve you any longer will fall to the wayside. Behavior that was once a habitual routine on Friday night, will no longer meet your desires. Your friends that you would get “wasted” with will suddenly feel like a burden to be around. Your home, or decorations/colors inside your home, won’t feel good to you any longer. Even foods, particularly processed food, will make you sick. You’ll question your sanity at times, and wonder if you’re making the right decision. It’s a journey. A marathon. There is nothing quick about it. Don’t expect miracles overnight, although they do happen. When manifesting a better job, you might walk into your current job with a pink slip waiting on your desk. Ask and you shall receive they say. So, be careful what you ask for. Attach the phrase, “all in God’s grace, in perfect timing, please and thank you” to your prayers. It makes a difference. Your angels want to know that you appreciate their hard work.
Is the spiritual path worth it? Yes. You’ll be better for it. Is it easy? Heck no. Can you go back? Nope. It’s been said that ignorance is bliss. I believe this to be true. Once you know the things you’ll learn, it’s impossible to forget. You won’t want to go back. The path is narrow and sometimes lonely, my friends. May you be blessed to find your way.

Thank you for such an amazing and candid reflection on the pressure cooker of life in medicine! You nailed it.
