Let’s talk about what is on a lot of people’s minds: love relationships, the perfect partner, soul mates, etc. I have been asked soooooooooo many times the above topics…. I did some research… if you are NOT into research… skip today… and have a good day…. (o:
What is the real meaning of soul mates (hint… there is NO one meaning)? Here are a few translations:
Some think of a soul mate as a person with whom one has a feeling of deep and natural affinity, similarity, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, or compatibility. In some “thinking”…the ultimate soul mate is the “one and only” other half of one’s soul.
Here are some others:
Ancient Greece – Aristophanes presented story about soul mates in The Symposium by Plato. It states that humans originally consisted of four arms, four legs and a single head made of two faces. Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spend their lives searching for the other half to complete them.
Theosophy – According Theosophy (whose claims were modified by Edgar Cayce) – God created androgynous souls – equally male and female. Later theories postulate that the souls split into separate genders, perhaps because they incurred karma while playing around on the earth or “separation from God.” Over a number of reincarnations, each half seeks the other. When all karmic debt is purged, the two will fuse back together and return to the ultimate.
Bashert: Jewish view of soul mates – Bashert if a Yiddish word that means “destiny”. It is often used in the context of one’s divinely foreordained spouse or soul mate, which is called “basherte” (female) or “basherter” (male). The idea of soul mates comes from statements found in classical rabbinic literature. A proverb that “marriages are made in heaven” is illustrated by a story. In modern usage, Jewish singles will say that they are looking for their bashert, meaning they are looking for that person who will complement them perfectly and with whom they will complement perfectly. Since it is considered to be foreordained by God whom one will marry, one’s spouse is considered to be one’s bashert by definition, independent of whether the couple’s marital life works out well or not.
Here is what I arrived at… remember I do not ascribe to any definition or tradition… so I am not trying to change anyone’s mind… just make you think and ‘do your own arriving’ at what you think a soul mate is…. This may get technical (like I ever do that, right?) so bear with me and you will find that it was “worth” it (as well as giving you some answers to other questions you may have to consider). Many people think that spirituality and the science of it is a bunch of “soft” touchy feelings that cannot be measured. But in reality, the spirit world is guided or works with precise scientific standards much like the laws that govern the physical world. In fact, the spiritual world has much more stringent natural laws… (Remember this is my interpretation – so don’t go all “you are wrong” crap on me). In the physical realm there are laws of gravity, magnetism, light, etc. that govern how we live our lives. We think that these are set in stone and never change. As we learn more about these laws, the more we find out that we have been wrong in many scientific fields. Laws we once believed have been totally revamped with the ability of new technologies. Albert Einstein’s last years were spent in anguish because he realized that most of his theories were incorrect or incomplete. There was a new set of laws that governed the physical laws. He was understanding the realm of quantum physics. This is where true science occurs and object behavior is determined. The two laws that transcend both worlds are electricity and magnetism. Jesus talked briefly about these laws but obviously in a different manner.
So what does this have to do with soul mates?
Well, one more definition to lay the groundwork. In the computer world the most basic building block of any program is – ones and zeros. Whether you are looking at a video, image file, word document, etc. they are all built on a series of ones and zeros that make up everything you see and hear. Ok, don’t tune me out just yet!!!! You may be wondering, “What in the heck does this have to do with soul mates?” In the spirit world the basic building block (that everything is made of – our physical world) is God –yeah, universal energy (I will use the term God because it is easier to write — shorter — but I mean universal energy, etc.)
Our spirit is God’s essence vibrating at a certain frequency. Every spirit has a particular frequency pattern, much like our fingerprints. In any religious text there is verbiage on how we were created in God’s image. Well — we were in a way. They were not talking about the human shape. They were talking about God’s spiritual essence. At the frequency that we vibrate we have been given the ability to “create” much like God – but in our own unique ways and we have God awareness which is universal knowledge.
In our creation we were created as a 1 or 0. The “goal” is to get back together with our counterpart….(remember this is research I have done… another way to look at things). The connection completes the series of codes needed to elevate us to higher realms – higher vibrations (the heaven on earth so to speak). This is part of the upheaval that surrounds 2012 (again, found in research). Our spirits are trying to find their respective soul mates. Your soul mate does not necessarily have to be your spouse or, partner. Soul mates are souls we have met and lived with in many lifetimes. They have been our lover, spouses, mothers, fathers, sister, brother, teachers, students, friends and family or even our enemies, victims or tormenters.
It can be any spiritual entity that vibrates at the same or higher frequency that completes your 1 and 0 combination. (NOT completing you- but a combination). It could be the same sex, from other worlds, somebody other than spouse, a friend, a family member, a stranger, etc. , although you may connect with more than one individual that will complete your circuit.
Unlike many ideologies, I don’t believe that God created your ideal soul mate for you, YOU DID. In fact God did not create anything in your reality and God will not “help” you change your reality… Not because God is mean or uncaring (sounds strange since God is really universal energy …but…) because God gave you what is called in many scriptures “free will”…….
Once you find your soul mate (s), what happens? It is like getting grated access to higher realms where there is more joy and abundance of any type. Jesus talks about this in his 4th parable. You can access higher realms without finding your soul mate so don’t worry. It also may be that your soul mate is already in your life, but you expect something different.
There is a great deal of science behind what is happening as we near 2012. It really has nothing to do with separation from God (because you are never separated from God). It has nothing to do with the standard definition of karma or love or marriage. Those blissful emotions are a much-desired by-product of our awakening. All the world is in flux to set the stage for the next realm.
The appearance of 11:11 or 12:12 (or really any double numbers) is an always beneficial act of divine intervention. It tells you that it is time to take a good look around you and see what is real and what is illusory. It is time to pierce the veils of illusion which keeps us bound to an unreal world. You have chosen to go forward… you are ready to step into a greater reality – to lead the way for others into a new way of living – into a greater love…. universal love — to ascend from duality into oneness. The 11:11 – 12:12 – whatever double numbers you see – is a bridge between duality and oneness. It is your pathway into the unknown.
So I am sorry for taking the romanticism surrounding the term soul mate, but like I said in the beginning, there is great deal of logical science in the spiritual realm that we are learning about. The good news is that once you do find your soul mate(s), you will receive warm fuzzies ten-fold as well as lifting the world consciousness to higher vibrations….
Again, if you are one of the folks waiting for find your soul mate as a partner… you may already have the soul mate that raises your vibration… your partner may be just that — a partner with whom you have a great relationship with.
So that is that… long, long, long…. But over….. I really do need some coffee, my mouth is very dry and head is empty….
