Soul Mates

Miss u Lulu

I am inspired by this Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) quote.  Although I DO think soul mates can be certain people that are present during one’s whole lifetime.  I have had soul mates that came and went, and soul mates who have been in my life since I was born.  Each person that I’ve consider to be a true soul mate has brought a lesson to my life and an opportunity to grow spiritually and emotionally.  To open my ears, eyes, brain, heart, soul to a greater message about living.  Some insights were learned right away, others have taken a long time and a lot of struggle before I “got it,” and some I’m still learning.

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. 

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. 

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”
