"Do you believe in soulmates?"
This is a question that I get asked regularly. With the holidays right around the corner and lots of time with loved ones, I thought it might be helpful to share my answer to this question with all of you.
Do I believe Soulmates? Well first, let me say, the word “soulmates” often evokes images of star-crossed lovers or that one person who completes us. Do I believe in them? Yes, but not in the traditional sense that popular culture has painted.
To begin with, my belief is deeply rooted in the concept of past lives. I'm of the conviction that souls embark on numerous journeys across different lifetimes. Throughout these cycles, we continually cross paths with specific souls, forging profound connections each time. These connections, I believe, are what we refer to as 'soulmate relationships'. However, unlike the romanticized versions, these connections are more organic, growing naturally over multiple lifetimes.
There's an unmistakable energy that emanates from soulmate relationships, distinctly different from the conventional ones. It's deeper, more spiritual, and resonates at a frequency that's hard to describe yet impossible to ignore. Such relationships can manifest as both positive and negative forces in our lives, serving as crucial catalysts for our spiritual growth and evolution.
Contrary to popular belief, soulmates aren't always romantic interests. They can be our siblings, friends, mentors, or even adversaries. The primary purpose isn't necessarily romantic love but intentional growth and evolution of our souls. Each soulmate nudges us, consciously or unconsciously, towards becoming our best selves.
Sadly, people might miss out on these transformative relationships, given the quest for the perfect person. In an time where the quest for superficial perfection is so dominant, many often close themselves off to genuine soulmate connections. They're so attached to the idea of romantic love that they sometimes overlook the essence of true love.
The belief that we have only one soulmate is a limiting one. Soulmate relationships are indeed real, but they transcend the traditional confines of romantic love.
In our quest for love, it's essential that we remain open to the myriad of possibilities and embrace these relationships in all their forms. After all, sometimes the magic lies not just in being in love but in recognizing and nurturing the right kind of love.
