Do You Believe In Soul Mates?


What do you think of the concept of soul mates; the notion that there is that one perfect person out there who is meant just for you?  You can live a perfectly productive life, but without that person by your side, you always have the nagging feeling that something is missing.  Many people think that it is all a bunch of nonsense, after all, given the right set of circumstances you can fall in love with just about anybody.  Depending on where you are in life, and your degree of vulnerability, it is possible fall in love with the most unlikely of candidates!  That is certainly true.  But this love will soon fizzle and fade away.  The love you share with a soul mate however is different.  It may fade a little with time, but it can never go away completely.

I am no stranger in the love department.  I fell in love for the first time at 16 years old, and most recently at 44, with a few loves in between.  In those years, I have learned some things about love. For example, I have learned that the term “young love” is a misnomer.  Falling in love at 44 was just as magical as falling in love at 16.  My friend Ann, who is 81 and still in love with her husband, tells me that it still feels like “young love”, even at her age.  I have also learned that you are never too young or never too old to find your true soul mate.

How do you know if you have found your true soul mate?  The first sign is the instant connection that you feel with this person.  In most cases, falling in love is a gradual process.  With a soul mate, it is almost instantaneous.  They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and you may find that the first thing you notice about your soul mate is his or her eyes.  When you look into those eyes for the first time, you feel a sense of recognition, as if you have known this person for a lifetime.   Your two souls connect like two long lost friends.

The second thing I know to be true about soul mates is that time and distance cannot break their bond.  The love that they share transcends the physical realm, and therefore cannot be weakened by the passage of time, or distance between them.

The third thing I believe is that soul mates can never really  “break up”.  Sure, soul mates can end their relationship, they may even move on to marry someone else.  However the love bond that they share can never be broken, and their souls will always find a way back to each other.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you……and of course to my soul mate!

If you are still looking for your true love, here is a prayer that I found called “The Soul Mate Prayer”:

Dear God, Loving Essence of all there is, please fill me with your sacred presence.

I ask for your Love and Guidance and for your blessings.

As I explore the deep reaches of my heart, I ask for your assistance in releasing that which stands in the way of true love.

My heart is pure; my intentions clear. Please bring to me my most perfect partner.

I seek a partner who enhances me by his/her very being,

who brings more love, joy, peace and prosperity to my life,

who I can love fully and who can fully receive my love,

who loves, honors and cherishes me completely, and always.

May my heart be open and my head be clear.

May my life be ready to welcome true love.

May I be embraced in a circle of your love

and uplifted by your grace.  And so it is

Perk # 21: Cancer Helped Me To Find My Soul Mate

As serendipity would have it, at almost exactly the same time that I found “my lump”, I also found my soul mate.  How do I know for sure that he is my soul mate?  Well, who else but a soul mate would commit to a new relationship with someone just diagnosed with cancer?  If having cancer did not help you find your soul mate, it will certainly let you know if he or she is by your side.  If you are still looking for that special someone, don’t let cancer hold you back.

Tip:  Even cancer cannot put a damper on the feeling of being in love.  If you are fortunate enough to have a special someone by your side, treat yourself to a little romance.
