Ah soulmates – those fortunate people we believe are meant for each other as if they share a magical mystical connection. Happy couples who seem more compatible and contented in every way. Yet even though romance often comes to mind first, there are as many kinds of soulmates as there as types of love or kinds of relationships. The purpose of human life is to return to unconditional love. We feel affection and fondness (Storge), friendship (Phileo), and romance (Eros) depending on the type of relationship as we learn how to love unconditionally (Agape) in any circumstance.
And that’s where soulmates come in. Our soul families are here to help us learn unconditional love. It takes more than romance to fulfill that mission and our soulmates are up to the job taking on whatever human role is needed for our growth. The goal is to help each other awaken and heal so each can ultimately re-join with their soul twin. Some of those roles are affectionate – friends, family, lovers, and beloveds of all kinds. Others are painful or unpleasant. Those relationships are more like sandpaper on fine wood, bringing out the beauty and strength of the grain through friction and pain. All are necessary.
Our soulmate families travel with us through time and space, through as many lives as are needed for our awakening. We meet again and again to jointly heal old patterns and issues, ultimately at the soul level. That means that anything needing healing will bubble to the surface in every type of soulmate relationship. Being with a soulmate does not shield us from being human. In fact, the opposite may be true as those needs reveal themselves. Being with a soulmate does give us a means to address those needs.
New Beginnings and Soulmates
If you are searching for a way to embrace a new beginning, it can be quite challenging at first. You must first be able to let things go. Most things are only a part of your life because you keep thinking about them. Positive things happen in your life when you emotionally distance yourself from the negative things. So stop holding on to what hurts, and make room for what feels right. Do not let what is out of your control interfere with all the things you can control.
Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. For everything you lose, you gain something else; and for everything you gain, you lose something else. You don’t have to like it, but it’s just easier if you do. So pay attention to your outlook on life. You can either regret or rejoice; it’s your choice.
