Soulmates, Sacred Contracts, Past Lives .. and How They Are All Connected

soul mate 5

“And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning.”
~ Paulo Coelho

What Prompted This Article

I asked a question that led me down a very interesting and unexpected road a few days ago.

I asked a friend whether she believed her partner was her soulmate.  She gave me an interesting answer and inspired me to do a little research.  (I am an Aquarian!)

I began what I thought would be a few minutes spent on Google producing icky Hallmark-style definitions and “How to Find Your Soulmate” articles, but became happily enthralled in some very interesting articles referencing powerful works from Plato, Carl Jung and Edgar Cayce on the subject of our one, true soulmate.

The concept has far more depth, profound mystery and exquisite spiritual importance than I had realized.  

It led me down an intense, “rabbit hole” of a journey into spirituality, mysticism, karmic ramification and past lives.

Your heart and my heart are very, very old friends

beautiful

A line from one of my favourite poems from sufi poet Hafiz.  I think his poetry is perhaps the most beautiful I have ever read.
Powerful, thought-provoking and deeply moving.

Your Mother and My Mother 

Fear is the cheapest room in the house.
I would like to see you living
In better conditions,

For your mother and my mother
Were friends.

I know the Innkeeper
In this part of the universe.
Get some rest tonight,
Come to my verse again tomorrow.
We’ll go speak to the Friend together.

I should not make any promises right now,
But I know if you
Pray
Somewhere in this world –
Something good will happen.

God wants to see
More love and playfulness in your eyes
For that is your greatest witness to Him.

Your soul and my soul
Once sat together in the Beloved’s womb
Playing footsie.

Your heart and my heart
Are very, very old friends.
