Who Is The Better Half? Me or Me?
During this holiday time of love, caring, and sharing our precious moments, all of us will find ourselves surrounded by our Soul Mates. This is not to be confused with Twin Flames, which I will get to in a moment.
Soul Mates are those with whom we have “contracted” with in Soul Place to be our light, to be our dark, to play our victim or devil’s advocate. They are our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, children, and even lovers. These roles are constantly changing through our different lifetimes for the purpose of helping us grow. Those in our Soul Group are set apart from the others we encounter in day-to-day life.
We know who our Soul Mates are. We can feel it. They are the ones we click with when we meet them at a party, high school, or college. They are the ones we stay connected with over the years and, well, connect with.
Many times someone will dreamily tell us they’ve married their Soul Mate only to end up in tears some years down the road, heartbroken that their partner was not their Soul Mate after all. The truth is that the one they “lost” actually was a Soul Mate, laced with karmic attraction, who entered into the relationship all because of an agreement made to learn/teach a lesson. And who of us has not learned something from a relationship that went sour?
It took me two long-term, major relationships to end before I realized I needed to set boundaries, to value myself, and to not give it all away at the expense of my soul. And it has turned out all right. I’m healing and they’re healing (I hope, for their sake). I’m good friends with both of my ex-partners, because after all, I’ll be seeing them again in this lifetime or the next because we have Soul Place karma together.
Recognition of the lessons we are trying to learn is key, though. We need to push our ego aside, learn what those lessons are, move on, and don’t keep entering the same types of relationships. Fortunately for me, it only took two go-arounds, but I’ve seen others who keep going back for more of the same, oftentimes lousy experiences. Failing to clear the emotional baggage will only delay our union with our Twin Flame.
And that, my friends, is the ultimate nirvana – the literal union with our other half. Upon coming into physical plane, our soul split into masculine and feminine aspects and over lifetimes, each now-complete soul seeks to evolve through the trials we have set before us. Only then will we be able to connect once again.
How do we know we have met our Twin Flame? From what I understand, the connection is so mind-blowing – way beyond the physical and emotional level – that we will just know. Period.
Chances are we have already had a connection with our Twin Flame in this lifetime, but one or the other just wasn’t quite prepared for the intensity such a union would create.
But we must be ready, because when Twin Flames do finally recognize one another, it is a magic of epic proportions. Imagine a depth of love so great that distance from one another is painful, but also a depth so great that one can feel the other’s thoughts, needs, and desires as if it is their own. The Twin Flames just know each other on a deep, deep soul level.
“…and when one of them meets their other half, the actual half of himself, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s sight for even a moment…” ~ Plato
So you tell me…have you met your Twin Flame or are you still “practicing” with a Soul Mate? Don’t be shy. It’s all good. We’re in this together….my Soul Mates.
