Many people hold the false belief that there is only one soul mate for each person and we have to seek them out to be happy. In reality, there are thousands of soul-connections with whom we can come in contact or interact with over a lifetime. When we encounter any person with whom we have such a connection, we instantly are drawn to them, and experience an energetic connection through our thoughts, feelings, and bodily responses. We may not see each other for long periods of time, but our soul bond remains forever.
Soul mates appear in our lives to assist us with our soul’s progression. They enhance our lives by providing insights, unconditional love, and spiritual assistance. Most importantly, we attract such soul-connected people into our lives by being our own soul mate, committed to doing the heart-centered spiritual work that it takes to stay true to our soul’s journey.
Most of us have the capability to love someone; however, to love and connect with them on a heart and soul level takes it up many spiritual levels. A soul-hearted partner is a soul mate with whom we are intimate― not just at the soul level, but on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. While a soul mate is like a diamond in the rough with its sparkle of potential, a soul-hearted partner is a diamond that has been cut and polished to bring out its brilliance and placed in a three-pronged setting of love, trust, and intimacy.
All soul-hearted partners are soul mates; yet not all soul mates become soul-hearted partners. Some become lifelong best friends or inspirational guides; others fade out of our lives once they’ve bestowed the spiritual gifts they came into our lives to give us.
Such an intimate connection is based less on our physical needs and more on a mutual validation of who we are. It is a true gift to ourselves to connect with such a partner, as they amplify the love already present within us.
The opening to love and connection that we can experience with a soul-hearted partner is something for which all human beings strive. To attract such loving and connected relationships into our lives, we must first embody the love and connection we seek. We do this by expressing genuine love in our every encounter so that the positive energy stream we generate makes each moment of our lives a loving meditation.
We can create soul-hearted partnerships by expressing ourselves at the soul level, and sharing our highest expression in our relationships on all levels—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The dynamic of a soul-hearted partnership first entails developing a fully realized relationship with ourselves and then, with another person, cocreating a relationship that supports the spiritual growth of each person, as well as the relationship itself.
