What is a Soul Mate?
According to the dictionary (Dictionary.com) a soul mate is defined as, “One of two persons compatible with the other in disposition, point of view or sensitivity.” A soul mate is a person that you share a natural and deep affinity for, as well as love and intimacy. While you may share lots of values, interests and commonalities with many people, a soul mate is someone you forge a much deeper and more spiritual bond with. On a metaphysical level, a soul mate is a person that you encountered in a past life and reconnected with after being reincarnated here on earth.
This ongoing long journey makes sense when looking at the ultimate big picture of multiple reincarnations leading to enlightenment. It even makes sense when looking at connections of souls between a past life and the present life. Not only does the existence of soul mates make sense, the cleaver manner in which the soul mate pops up in a lifetime at the right time for a lesson to be learned is more than amazing! And it is far more than “coincidence”.
It can not be denied. Souls travel together in numerous lifetimes. In some lifetimes souls are in love with each other, and sometimes they fight and kill each other. In doing thousands of regressions it has become clear to me that the souls really do love each other — at the spiritual level. They enter into various relationships on the Earth plane to help teach each other and to learn valuable lessons. In the end (Whenever that is!), all the lessons are about learning unconditional love.
There is some evidence that one of the souls may skip coming into a lifetime in a physical body with the other soul mate, and instead stay in spirit form. It appears the spirit form soul mate acts as a “guide” or “spirit helper”. These spirits never interfere but do help when asked, — but that is a whole other area I won’t cover here.
There is a belief that souls get together in their spirit form before birth in a physical body and agree on how they will interact and for what purpose in their next lifetime. It appears that this planning is to help the souls on their karmic path toward enlightenment. The agreement may even be for one soul mate to kill the other. But this opens a huge area of discussion about karma and predestination, and that is beyond my purpose here.
The concept of a soul mate has been around for a long time and dates back centuries. The romantic view of a soul mate is that there is only one person in the world who is right for you and that once that person is found, he or she can bring about a sense of wholeness or completeness to your world, as in the saying, “My other half.” The concept of the other half was first described by the Greek philosopher, Plato.
Finding someone you have a deep and natural affinity for, means finding an individual who is very well suited to your temperament. One belief is that we are predestined to be with a certain person because of the role of destiny or fate. Many people believe that the connection between soul mates continues after one of the two has died.
Keep Your Options Wide Open
In order to find your soul mate, you have to be open to opportunities to meet new people. When you do meet new people, you have to be willing to give them a chance to get to know you and vice versa. Do not rush forward too quickly, but make an effort to establish emotional intimacy and trust before rushing into physical intimacy.
Do not search for a person who is a perfect match for you because that is an impossible standard to live up to. You are not perfect, so you cannot expect someone else to be perfect for you either. Doing this will leave you terribly hurt, disappointed and disillusioned. Look instead for a person who is a good fit for you. Once you find a person like that, work to strengthen the relationship and do everything you can to encourage its growth, stability and longevity.
Your soul mate is out there, you just need to keep your options open and remember that he or she might not be exactly what you are expecting. It does not hurt to develop your soul to the best of your ability while you are searching for a person to share your life with. If you are the best “you” possible, then you will attract the best possible mate you can, or if you like, your other half.
