Questioner: Alana, as we wrap up this delightful series I would appreciate it if you would summarize the topic of soul mates for our readers and give those who are seeking a soul mate relationship some words of encouragement.
Alana: For starters, I invite you to celebrate your unique nature. When you connect with another individual allow yourself to get out of you and really experience them.
At the same time when you’re together as you expand into self-awareness, your authenticity will allow you to fully be in the experience and the present.
You won’t be continually checking into the past or perceived future and sorting experiences or trying to determine what’s real. Instead, you will be expressing a richer alignment with your individuality, and thus able to be more fully present with another.
Ceasing the Present Moment
When you are fully present you’re able to listen and sense their essence. This gives you the ability to observe your moment-to-moment experiences so that you can explore their full nature. This gives you a greater probability to determine where and how they fit into your life.
Also, recognize that soul mate vibrations meet really do meet on a spiritual (realm) or level. In other words, when you feel their nature you feel comfort from the connection of your hearts. Or, you feel comfortable when in their presence because you can talk about spiritual principles or spiritual ideas that you find you each share.
Where Soul Mate Meet
Sometimes a soul mate will enter your life first as a dear friend. As friends, your emotions will feel safe. Soul Mate vibrations often express by supporting each other. It is rare that soul mates join together first in a physical realm. In other words, it is rare that two vibrations that are soul mates experience their connection as pure sexual attraction, or a magnetic attraction just on the physical plane as their primary connection. This is because soul mate relationships come from a bond on the soul level, which is a lighter, or a higher frequency than the physical plane. Even atheists have spiritual bonds because energy always attracts.
Alana is not discounting physical attraction or saying that it is unimportant. I am just saying that its a denser connection and less likely to be the thread of a soul mate relationship.
Also recognize, that when two people come together from the spirit realm, from an emotional place, they can build deeper trust in this life. They can build compatibility and a greater understanding of each other. They can have greater compassion for one another, too.
It is much easier for a lighter vibration to become denser (for a spiritual connection to then become an expression of emotions) than it is to come from a mental connection, which then becomes physical attraction than it is for a physical attraction to jump into a deeply expressed spiritual connection.
Therefore when you meet somebody and find you are very physically attracted to them, it may be a momentary relationship that is more primal in nature or one that could pass quite quickly.
Yes, it is also possible that this type of attraction could still reveal a soul mate relationship. The two involved could still elevate their connection from the physical into the mental, into the emotional, and to the spiritual. This is actually how soul mate relationships are often created!
Connecting with Love
Becoming soulmates can take lifetimes of learning and while growing together.
So why not reap the rewards of those who are already clearly soul mate relationships that are free to express without a lot of karma, or need to cycle through many existences. Why not enjoy the nature of love with those you encounter who are truly aligned with your authenticity and share compatibility and soul recognition.
There will still be many relationships to encounter in life that will gradually grow through this life’s experience, into future lives to learn that love is our true path.
Questioner: So, Alana, it seems to me you are saying that the greatest unions and most lasting tend to move through life’s experiences by first blending on a spiritual connection, then they learn how to deepen their connection in this life on an emotional level, and from there they support each other mentally, and come to celebrate the physical should they choose to be intimate life partners. We can really have it all.
Alana: Yes dear one, soul mate vibrations can create a connection on all levels. To do so it takes a desire, it takes an intention, and it takes true love.
Questioner: Thank you, Alana.
