They range in all ages, sizes, ethnic backgrounds, education, economic levels, dysfunctional family backgrounds, cultures, and more. These are the abused women who come to me for readings in a quest to find freedom and spiritual purpose.
Why do they stay with their husbands? You know the answer, FEAR, for themselves and other family members.
The Internet has played a major role in helping women escape from men who abuse them physically, emotionally and spiritually, CONTROL, mental illness, substance abuse, patterns, it's always about patterns. This has been the case since the beginning of time.
The woman I have read recently finally 'escaped' after 20+ years of abuse, usually when the children were grown.
They have escaped to a place far away from the husband, lost in the cracks, and found freedom at last. In many cases they report being spiritually guided to the new location, a place they never imagined they would live.
It is here they have all found soul mates and their place in the evolution of their soul's journey.
Their journeys and epic struggles could fill the pages of many novels for they are the true survivors.
Coming from a background of respect and love, these stories come hard to me especially as I have never been abused and would never allow myself to be in that situation.
It's the same old story, genetic patterns, mental illness and the roles people play in our reality, which makes little sense to most people as the program collapses.

Wednesday morning I read another formerly abused wife who escaped her husband to find love and spiritual purpose. At the end of the reading I told her that I need to write a column about abused wives ... when what should I find in today's news ...
40 percent of women in study report abuse by men - CNN, May 17, 2006
The researchers, who say their study is a snapshot but suggests a national trend, were surprised at the numbers."This is an epidemic," said Dr. Robert Thompson of the Seattle-based Group Health Center for Health Studies, who led one study. "But it flies under the radar, because of the stigma and shame associated with it -- as well as the fear that many health care providers have of opening what some call a 'Pandora's Box' of difficult problems that they are unsure how to address," Thompson added in a statement.
For their study, Thompson and colleagues interviewed a random sample of more than 3,400 women members of a Seattle health maintenance organization. They found 44 percent of the women, aged 18 to 64, had suffered some form of what they call "intimate partner violence." Most reported more than one type -- for example, physical violence and verbal threats. Intimate partner violence "harms women's physical and mental health even more than do other common conditions, such as back pain and even several forms of cancer," said Amy Bonomi of the Group Health Center for Health Studies, who wrote the second study. The studies, funded by the U.S. federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, mesh with previous estimates that show anywhere between 25 percent and 50 percent of women may have experienced abuse. But the studies focused on women with health insurance, who tend to be older and have higher incomes and more education than average. Of the women who were abused, 13 percent said it had persisted for more than 20 years.
