Soul Mates: Discovering Yours

Author: Joan Marie Whelan

Namaste, a Hindu expression, roughly translates into "that which is of the Divine in me greets that which is of the Divine in you." And when we reflect on this simple expression, we find that the Sanskrit language of the soul resonates with us all on a deeper, more spiritual level -- and this is how, too, many a soul can reacquaint itself with its identical counterpart.

Believe it or not, our intuition plays an essential role in discovering exactly who our soul mates are. Throughout our lifetimes, we have certainly come upon an individual to whom we're inclined. Suddenly, you feel this sense of "knowing" -- though you've never met that person before. And, it is in that "chance meeting" that we discover how much alike we are. The "chance meeting," however, is no accident; a matter of fact, it is not by chance at all. There are no "accidents" in life. Remember, every encounter and every facet of our lives is laid out for us to explore -- including the journey in finding our soul mates.

Whether or not one believes in the possibility of reincarnation, it is important to note that each of us has at one time or another met an individual to whom we've been drawn like a magnet. Accordingly, our mutual bond helps us to rediscover the life light in each other. Perhaps in a not-too-distant past, we shared experiences and/or love, and that is what has drawn us together. There are NO accidents in these "chance encounters."

But how do you discover your soul mate? That depends entirely on how evolved you are on a spiritual plane. Euphoric love is such a heightened state of emotional awareness that one could liken this feeling to the ultimate high. And when we have opened ourselves up to invite another into our sacred space of love, we often discover the vast similarities of our likes and dislikes...but that is simply not enough to awaken our soul mate experience. One must resolve to live in an absolute state of awareness, unlike "euphoric love," but that of Divine love to reignite the passion and discovery of one's soul mate.

You see, the difference between a state of euphoria and a relaxed state of heightened awareness is that our sense of heightened awareness is what essentially gives us the innate ability to "see" who are twin soul mate is; not like euphoria -- the beginning stage of infatuation, which can sometimes blind us from the truth of the matter.

So here we are, another Valentine's Day, and we still haven't discovered our soul mate -- don't be discouraged. Many travelers haven't found their soul mate because they've been all-consumed by either euphoria or emotional blockages. But don't despair; there is a way to rediscover your twin flame in the vast expanse that we call Earth: First, we must throw out all preconceptions and misconception of what love is supposed to be. There are no perfect physical unions, but there can be perfect spiritual unions. And when we resolve to love others with absolute love, we discover a whole new realm of life.

If you haven't honed in on your inner wisdom, now is the time to do so. Now ask yourself, "Am I looking for love?" or "Am I seeking my soul mate?" Which of the two do you desire most? If you've decided on the latter and truly want to reunite your soul mates, then you must nurture your inner consciousness. Awaken your mind through meditation, peaceful reflection and gear up for the expedition of your life. If you are intended to meet your soul mate, you will. The intention, however, must coexist in both your mental and emotional being. To achieve this state of awareness, you must be focused on your anticipated result.

How do you know if you've met your soul mate? Like two small embers, sparks will ignite an inferno of emotions. You will be flooded with a sense of "knowingness" on a very soul-full level. This is not euphoria, rather, a very intense state of emotional, mental, and spiritual unity that transcends the normalcy of physical love. The nicest part of this soul mate reunion is that once you have received it, it remains steadfast in your life. The flames can never be distinguished.

Are you ready to explore and fulfill your destiny with your soul mate? All things are possible through God -- and yes, even finding your soul mate is one of those possibilities. Understand that like all goals in life, the quest for finding our soul mate takes effort and patience. Enlighten yourself by reigniting your life light...the rest will come in time.

Until we speak again, I am
