My personal experience with soulmates is it is very tribal. I don’t have a specific soul mate, I have an entire soul tribe. My parents are soulmates. My best friend is a soulmate. I believe my current boss to be a soulmate and dare I say my ex-husband is one. These are the people who seem to know me better than I know myself. It is as if I have known them not just my entire life, but in many past lives.
The more I meditate on the idea of fellow soulmates, is it is something our human minds cannot fully comprehend. According to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, our souls choose our parents. I can attest to this. I truly believe my parents (although couldn’t provide everything I desired) gave me everything I needed for soul growth. Our friends, the lovers we take are contracts our souls made in a space we cannot conceive. Which is why in life we cannot cling to those we believe to be soulmates. They are meant as guides and teachers, more so then life-long love relationships and even sometimes friendships. This is the reason why our relationships seem so fleeting at times and we fall in depths of despair. It was never supposed to last. The soul contract simply expired.
However, lately this close-knit-clan-soulmate notion has faded a bit. Surely, there are those who come in and out of life who have made such dramatic entrances and exits. But as I noted on a brief meme, if we believe in human connections and collected consciousness, we are all soulmates. If we believe the notion, we are all one, then we are all soulmates.
Soulmates could be a stranger on social media, a person or persons who challenge our ideals, inspires our creativity and nourishes our growth. Everyone one we meet has a soul connection to us. The thing is, we can be responding to things that go far beyond our humanness which effects our inner being…our true being.
This can help expand our world, when we stop trying to find the ONE. The ONE doesn’t exist when we are all the one. When we realize all our souls are our mates, perhaps is the time we can find real peace.
