Soul Mate

I receive so many emails saying people thought they were soul mates and are terrible disappointed.

The only soul mates that I can experience that are truly what they presented themselves as are our own other half. This is the male half of you that has been pushed down if you have a female body. If you find it and release it there is a wonderful spiritual marriage. The same applies of course to men who have kept their female side locked up and denied.

The spiritual marriage takes place in a very intense experience, and can be like meeting a spiritual being.

We give ourselves all these names – like God – Christ – Allah – Buddha – Soul Mate. We find that wonder in ourselves and then project it externally. We cannot believe that what we see as God, or Allah and a great  love is a glimpse of our own potential, is a vision of what we are. So we project it outwards and kneel before it.

I am all that I project.

 Example: As I accept that it feels as if something lights up at the top of my head. I have the distinct intuition that there are functions at the top of the brain that mostly as humans we do not use, we have not brought to life. We are not using them, or we are barely using them. And when I accepted that I am IT, that I have been projecting that wonder outside of me, it felt that something lit up in the top of my head. There was an image of a brilliant fire bursting to life. I experienced a feeling of splendour. I saw that the sexual impulse if it is allowed to grow and unfold is leading to that life of splendour. It is leading to that incredible union between a man and a woman.

Here I could not carry on talking for a while because the sense of wonder was so strong. But in that experience of splendour I saw that the man and woman in their love find themselves in each other. They are seeking themselves in the other. Just as we project God, Christ, angels, so we project on to our partner that wondrous lover that in fact is the union and wholeness of our own being. All we are seeking in the end is the Self. We are moving towards the realisation of splendour that lies at the core of our own being and of course the core of our partner – the splendour that is Life itself.

There is also a wonderful meeting when we meet someone who we have known and loved in a past life. But that need not be between a man and woman. It can be a mother or father and child, a sister or brother, or a stranger we are immediately attracted to.

A soul mate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.
