soulmates


soulmates - our eternal mates



well, that is a subject close to my heart or maybe to everyone who believes in souls and love



it's incredibly complicated and difficult to understand the concept of a soulmate, but let me try and pen down of what I have been able to gather though there are conflicting beliefs about soulmates all over the place and someone who is new to the word can get terribly confused



a soulmate is a mate in the spiritual world, they have spent usually more than one lifetimes on earth with you. it's not usually that the soulmate relationship is necessarily a romantic one...a soulmate could appear in relationships like son, daughter, brother, sister or close friend...but mostly is since a romantic relationsip offers the maximum opportunity for spiritual growth amongst the souls of similar levels of maturity. the purpose for a soulmate in your life is to help you grow spiritually, by challeging you and your values or sometimes by becoming a mirror to your own shortcomings...they are our eternal partners who are not there to judge but hold our hands and help us move to the next level while we help them at the same time


one may find one or even more than one soulmate in one lifetime and sometimes its not all rosy with them and yet, they complete you in many ways. have you ever been in that space where as soon as you saw or met someone, you recognised a connection...when you talked to the person that connection or the comfort seemed to be too good to believe...life does give you opportunities to meet your soulmates and sometimes in very odd sitautions and then its left to both the souls involved to recognise the connection and get closer.


i just read it somewhere that a woman asked a therapist while her past life regression that I met my soulmate, but I have 3 kids now and he has 2...so if my soul was to decide when to meet him why did it make this choice...well, the answer is that it isn't a coincidence that you met your soulmate late in life...it may well be that your soul took this decision because it had lessons to learn through the suffering involved in this challenge. souls are wiser and they are looking at the bigger picture. when a life is planned before birth, the soul is aware of the fact that their love or connection with their soulmate is eternal so its only a role playing they will be doing to experience different emotions and learn new lessons in the school of earth but when we come to earth, the momories of why that deciosion was taken are lost, yet, the lessons still need to be learnt


usually you might have shared multiple lifetimes with your soulmate and the comfort, familiarity and completeness of your relationship will make you see through this. unknowingly, every soul longs to be united with it's soulmate on earth because that gives it immense strength and support to go on in life and achieve what its meant to achieve...people who are more sensitive to their souls might feel the incompleteness till they are reunited with their soulmates on earth, yet some may fail to recognise them or have enough conviction to build up relationships that will keep them close forever...in such cases, mostly there are our guides or guardian angels who are guiding us by putting thoughts in our mind, by helping us through our inner voice but it again depends on our mind, body and soul relationship to judge what is to be believed because life is always about choices


if its any consolation, if your life's plan includes meeting your soulmate in this incarnation, you will know when you see him/her...just listen to your heart

our souls in the spirit world

our souls in the spirit world
This whole thing is getting very interesting. I have moved from Brian Weiss now to reading Michael Newton, who has been researching in this area since about 30 years now and some of his work and books are really interesting. I am currently reading 'Journey of Souls", which also has a sequel that I will read next to this. Its a very amazing book since its written in the form of case studies with pateints and it covers a completly new and different side of PLR, it sort of focuses on the life of souls when they are not on earth, as in their life as spirits.

There is this entire symmetry between what his patients say about where they go after they die, what does it look like, what does it feel like, who welcomes them as spirits, can they communicate with earthly people after death, who are their guides, what are they expected to do as spirits and so on.I have read many books of Past Life Regression till now, but this one sort of covers an entirely new side of the soul life and it’s interesting to read people's experiences.

I am still half way through and one thing that keeps coming back to my mind while reading this is, the journey of our souls is pretty much a superset of the journey we have on earth and somehow it seems that we still carry the emotions, the relationships, the feelings, the goods with us life after life...so if some relationships aren’t working or that spontaneous connect isn't there or that bonding isn't there where you feel this love from deep down inside, it could mean that relationship is only build here but is not one that your soul has from above.

After reading this material, one thing that I am becoming more and more sure of is that there isn't any heaven or hell...whatever is there, its here. We go through difficult lifetimes because we have lessons to learn that only suffering can teach us and earth is our school...its here we get rewarded and its here we get punished too...the purpose of god or the high above entity isn't to punish us, but for us to learn the lesson well.

a big school


Adding to what minal has written, it appears that the world is a big learning space. This learning is what we call rise of consciousness. Once we start questioning the world around us, the objective of our being and all the whys and hows that exist in our life, we start moving towards a higher level of consciousness or shall we say the next class? That is also the reason that its easier to corelate with some and not with others. Its when our consciousness levels somehow are in the same level or we are in a same class in this big school, it becomes easier to corelate and to understand each other then with the person not at that level.

I believe that each birth is going to the next class.... if you have cleared your exams! With an ultimate objective of going to a different dimension altogether.

afterlife...do I believe in having crossed this journey many times before?


Time and Space - Life and Afterlife


recently I have been reading a lot of stuff which again and again refers to the word "soul". I have been reading material right from blogs to published books on the matter and I must admit, being a Hindu and being Indains, we hear this stuff right from our school days, but I had never paid a lot of attention to actually think beyond what was told to me.



in hindi, the soul is called "aatma" and somewhere this concept of soul has been around in our religion and mythology for a while now but somehow I got drwn to this concept when i read the book called "Many Lives, Many Masters", by Dr.Brian Weiss. Its quite a read I must say and after reading it, did I realise that there is so much in the world that we don't know or just take for granted.


Now, let me explain what I understood and have started believing after reading loads of material and having discussions with people who sort of believe in afterlife. Every living person does have two parts to him, one is the physical being or the body and one is the spiritual being called the soul. The soul is eternal, it keeps on living...it cannot die or cannot be harmed. The physical being is what changes. The soul takes birth what is called "incarnation" and re-incarnation on the earth, to grow wiser. That is the purpose of our endless lives...to grow wiser at the spiritual level and to learn the lesson of unconditional love.


Important things I have learnt and have started believeing because they sort of make sense to me. The soul does not have anything negative attached to it. It is a spiritual being and only knows love. When it comes to the earth, it slowly picks up all the negativity from the surroundings, but only in the physical form.


The most important and profound statement I read in one of Dr.Brian's book, which I thought was life altering was that the soul carries the love, emotions and relationships it builds to the next life while it cannot carry any material assets. People spend their entire lifetimes in earning money and ignoring their relationships, where those are the relationships which will get carried forward with them in their next life while all the money will stay here. Furthermore, if you ignore the relationships or hurt people in this life, you will create debts or you will have lessons to learn which will come back to you either in this life or in the next lives...so you are actually doing more harm than good to yourself and those around you.


There is life on many planes of consciousness. This, our world is only one such plane. It is a like a graduating school for the soul. There maybe many other schools that we are unaware of, but the soul everywhere is the same. We have to learn our lessons and the soul keeps coming back to the school, untill all lessons are learned. We re-incarnate as male, female, rich and poor...are born into many religions etc because we have to learn from all sides.


Now you may wonder, why am I preaching. There hasn't been enough argument I have given to support my beliefs. Well, I will keep quoting various experiences from people mentioned in many places and soon through my own experinece also, that will show you why I think this is all true. For the time being, i just want to say...yes, I beleive in souls and I believe in Re-incarnation and I believe I have been to this earth many times before. It does happen to everyone I guess that sometimes when you are doing something, going somewhere or meeting someone, you get this very strong feeling that you have been here before...you know this person...well, your feeling might have an answer in your past lives :)
