Marriage, Divorce and All That’s in Between.
Oh my goodness, there’s so much going on lately, my head is spinning. There’s so much to share with you and I’m not sure where to start so I’ll start with three weeks ago when my husband Jay came home from teaching a class and he was very happy. There was a calmness, elation and peace of mind all at the same time. He said he realized that what he wants to do with the rest of his life is to teach and as soon as those words came out of his mouth, my inner voice said that the relationship is finished and it was time for us to go our separate ways.
I was a bit taken back by that and needed to sleep on it before sharing the information with Jay. It was pretty startling and yet I had an inner knowingness that this was exactly the way it was supposed to go. We were meant to come together for the time we were and now it was time to move on to the next adventure in our lives. A week later we went down to the courthouse hand in hand and filed for divorce followed by lunch at our favorite restaurant. I’ve been doing alot of crying and soul searching about all that had happened in our year together. I learned alot about myself as a married woman. As my dear friend Numerologist Wes Hamilton says, “I’m not wife material.” My career is my life and I had a heck of a time trying to be a housewife and step-mom. I kept thinking I had to do it the way my mom did but I learned that was not realistic. Her generation was my role model for how to be when you’re married and it wasn’t working out. My work was suffering. My students kept asking me if I was okay. I had lost my spark trying to be something I wasn’t cut out to do. Looking back, I learned so so so much. I’m grateful for the experiences. It’s been quite an emotional time but slowly I’m getting my old spark back and it feels great to be back at work. Jay has headed back to his home state of Florida to pursue his dreams and I’m in the process of figuring out what’s next.
A few things are presenting themselves to me which I’m pretty excited about. There’s actually two possible tv gigs in the works and unfortunately I can’t share anything about them yet because contracts haven’t been signed but there’s definite movement towards being out into the world in a bigger way to help people understand this whole genre of the paranormal. And then in the last week, I’ve been getting guidance about writing a book on reincarnation which happens to be one of my favorite topics. Yesterday on my Facebook page there was a post from Wayne Dyers page about his grandson which prompted many people to post about their children’s comments about past lives and that seemed to be the final kick in the pants for me to get moving on this. I loved their little stories of recalling past lives.
I’ve got a very long list of people waiting to get in for a reading but my inner voice continues to say NO to doing them. I’m going to concentrate on my classes right now and get going on this book which reminds me. If you have a child who has talked about their past life or lives, if you are okay with me sharing them in this book (I will not use your real names) I would be ever so grateful if you would email them to me at Echo@echobodine.com. The purpose of the book is to help people understand reincarnation better and why we go through the challenges that we do.
Remember about a year and a half ago I went on the HCG diet and lost 30 lbs in 40 days? I’m going back on it and get rid of all this weight I’ve put on since getting married. If you want to join me, let me know. I’ll connect you to the nurse nutritionist who I work with and maybe we can all do this together on line. That would be very cool.
Thanks for your patience. It’s really been a challenging time………….but then again, who isn’t going through something right now. The Universe is packing a punch.
