What is a Soulmate?
All relationships serve a purpose and should be honored and appreciated for what they have to offer you in your personal spiritual growth.
So now, what is a soulmate? Soulmates are those beings that we have had
connections with in past lives. They may have been our parents, siblings,
spouses, friends, etc. and they have agreed to come back to join us again.
The reason for this rejoining is so that we can each achieve balance in our
lives. Our soulmates represent our spiritual family. By connecting with them
we are reminded of the resonance of our Soul and also they help us to wake
up and remember our purpose. Most of the time when we think of soulmates we
are thinking of love relationships, but we can have soulmates that join us
for business partnerships, healing relationships, and yes, love
relationships. Any relationship we can have is open to the arena of
soulmates. They may be a teacher or minister or counselor who comes into our
life and touches it deeply. soulmates are truly our friends from many
lifetimes who come to play again with on this Earth. Often they come into
our lives for a specific time or event. They may even come into a love
relationship to assist us in a specific learning and then move on. Whatever
the purpose of being in each other’s lives it is a beautiful experience.
When you connect with your soulmate in a love relationship, you have, in
effect, found your perfect mate for where you are in your development as a
So if soulmates are our spiritual family, what are Twin Flames? Twin Flames are ourselves in another body. When Souls chose to enter into physicality, they were split into masculine and feminine aspects. Please note, I did not say male and female, because throughout our incarnations, we will be in both genders of bodies. When we first leave to enter into physicality, we will connect with our Twin Flame. This is done so we will not feel so totally alone in the human experience. After this we go our separate ways and grow lifetime after lifetime in experience and wisdom until we are ready to break free of the bonds of physicality and mortality. When we have reached this stage we have the opportunity to reconnect with our “other half” or Twin Flame. The chances are that we meet our Twin Flame briefly in many lifetimes, but one or both of us are not ready for the intensity of this connection. When both halves of the whole are ready to come back together and meet they will discover that in that lifetime they have lead almost parallel lives. The events of their lives will mirror each other almost exactly. They may have come from very similar families and family dynamics. They may have had similar schooling or lack thereof. They may have almost identical careers. They may even have previous marriages and divorces within weeks of each other. When Twin Flames get to know each other, they will feel as if the other is reading their life script.
Once in relationship, the bond between Twin Flames can only be compared to the bond between identical twins. They are aware of each other’s thoughts, feelings, desires and needs at a level that is hard to imagine. The depth of Love is such that to be apart even for a day is a hardship. What is meant by that is that their hearts literally hurt when they are separated from each other. Even if only for the workday. It is this depth of Love that reminds them of the oneness to which they are returning. By anchoring this Love in the physical, not only are they preparing for their own ascension, but they are also leaving an imprint for others to follow in time for their own.
All relationships serve a purpose and should be honored and appreciated for what they have to offer you in your personal spiritual growth. Thank the person and the experiences for all that you have had the opportunity to learn and clear. Know that ALL relationships are sacred.
