February Theme: LOVE
“What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life? … to strengthen each other…to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” ~George Eliot
“But how will I know who my soul mate is?”
One of the most significant questions I get asked is the Soul Mate question. Just yesterday at a workshop a lovely young girl asked me this in her own loving way. I could see she was so full of love and honored her query with my time and experience as a Psychological and Spiritual Counselor. I have answered countless questions for my patients, who were wondering who their Soul Mates are, and whether they are with the Love of Their Life.
This is perhaps one of my favorite questions and topics, as the exploration of a Soul Mate is truly a spiritual journey – one that I am privileged to share with my readers and patients.
As I connect with so many souls on a daily basis, we exchange ideas and energies that influence their life’s journey. We discuss choices in partners, lessons in love, and explore spiritual imbalances that need to be ironed out and reconnected. I treasure this sacred connection while I offer spiritual counseling.
From the time I could read romance novels which was when I was about 13, with raging hormones and innocence, I often thought of a soul mate as only a lover and nothing more. But as time has passed, with learning, and experience my definition of my soul mates has positively evolved as have I.
Notice I said “Soul-Mates“
Yes, I believe we each have many many soul mates in our lifetime. The problem most of the time, is our sense of expectation of what a soul mate is supposed to be. The regular definitions that we are taught commercially about through romance novels truly does not do this beautifully divine connection any justice.
We each have numerous Soul Mates who take on various forms as we walk through our life time. We may re-encounter them as Lovers, Friends, and Family Members and even as Pets and Nature(butterflies, fish, flowers..). And sometimes there are no labels to define that relationship…The most important factor is the deep emotional bond we share with each Soul and the ensuing life lessons that we will learn while we encounter them in our life times.

This joining, this knowing, this heart connection happens in an instant. That kind of bond never weakens or breaks. No amount of time, distance or indifference can deteriorate that bond. Infact, in most cases, the distance, the time and the indifference actually deepens the bond of the soul.
How do I know who is my soul mate?
Here are a few signs of a true soul mate:
-a soul mate is someone you feel a supreme level of comfort and security with. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t issues that remain to be ironed out. But, it simply means we know intuitively that we can resolve issues with our soul mate without losing his or her love and respect.
-a soul mate is someone you can be completely YOU with. No veils, no pretenses, no artificial makeup….just raw YOU. The right soul mate infact brings out the best in you, without even trying too hard.
-a soul mate is that one person we are completely safe with. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own heaven.
Finding your soul mate is not that hard to do, cause they usually come before us and present themselves in some form on our life’s path. Whats hard to do though is fall and get hurt in the process of finding that soul mate.
I have fallen so many times in that process. But I healed because I learned from every fall. I got back up everytime and never stopped looking. Only to realize that who I was looking for, was looking for me all along. Its was only a matter of paths crossing at just the right time.
So long as you are in the process of loving with all your heart, the search will provide for you answers in the many souls you encounter on the way.
Your spiritual growth is astounding till you actually find that soul mate. Once you find your soul mate, your spiritual growth becomes a million times more astounding.
When the time is right, when its meant to be you will ‘Know’ your soul mate
I have openly admitted before, that I’ve had a string of bad relationships in my past, mostly cause I wasn’t stable in my head at that time and I really wasn’t operating from a space of true love at the time. What I know without a doubt, is that those relationships were just not meant to be. The relationships, bonds and heart connections that developed because of many of those bad relationships, STILL stand strong. It just goes to show, that true love and true heart connections can’t be severed.
As I look at my life today, I feel blessed to be surrounded by heart connections I so deeply cherish. The many many soul mates of this life time ‘get’ me. I am open to many more soul mates, many more heart connections, many more loves….but the one closest soul mate of mine remains yet untouched and on a completely different vibrational field altogether. Thank You for opening my heart and shining the light In me. I’m so so extremely lucky to have found you and recognized you.
How you can KNOW for sure that this is your soulmate:
Your soulmate(s) will give you wings to fly and be the wind beneath those wings too. There is no negativity within that sacred bond, just pure love.
But, it took me a long long while to find my soul mate(s), recognize them and honor them. It took a lot of heart ache, a lot of pain and lot of healing but the bottom line- I did find my soul mate(s), because I was completely open to love. And as the Universe would have it, I keep connecting with so many more. All giving me wings to fly.
The surest way to attract your soul mate(s):
BE LOVE! Its that simple. If you can love yourself and everyone in this magnanimous world truly and completely – imperfections, curves, smiles and all….that’s when your energy realigns to love and attracts the perfect soul mate(s) tailor made especially for you. You just be love and watch how the Universe does its magic.
