by Dr. Georgina Cannon: There are two additional overarching categories of relationships that people always want to know about. The questions go something like this: “Is there a perfect mate out there for me?” or “Will I meet my Soul Mate?” These are interesting questions. I answer this question in greater detail in my new book RETURN AGAIN, published by Red Wheel Weiser, but let’s take a quick overview of the issues around the longing for a soul mate.
The soul reason most relationships exist is so that you can work on your spiritual self and your karma! And by relationships I mean all of them. Relationships with your work colleagues, your family, your friends and your lovers.
My work in the clinic over the past 17 years has shown that the one connector to all relationships is ourself. So with that said, the more you clear up issues for yourself, the more you ARE the ‘right’ person, the more you will attract the people you are looking for to live and love in harmony and joy.
Soul Mates are other souls that have agreed to connect with you on this planet for a purpose. In some cases it is to clear up karma, in other cases it is to finish unfinished business, and for some it is to accomplish a particular life goal together. These relationships may be a joy to be in or these relationships may be a pain in your life. Either way they are here for a reason.
Soul Mate relationships may last a lifetime and others may only be for a particular purpose and be temporary. You can have more than one Soul Mate in a lifetime
When Soul Mates first meet they sometimes feel as if they already know each other. They may feel very familiar to each other. Soul Mates can have a beautiful relationship together, but it will take work.
All Soul Mate relationships contain passion. And that passion can be positive or negative. It can shed sunlight on your soul or cause drama and negativity. (Yes, your ex could be a soul mate – and that rancorous divorce you’re experiencing could be your soul lesson!)
If your soul mate – the soul to teach you, is negative, it’s worth remembering that you have probably shared a life with them before, in which you could be the negative unhappy person, so that in addition to you learning to process and release negativity, the folks who shared your life, hopefully learned forgiveness and acceptance.
It’s worth remembering, all relationships serve a purpose and should be honored and appreciated for what they have to offer you in your personal spiritual growth. Thank the person and the experiences for all that you have had the opportunity to learn and clear. Know that ALL relationships are sacred, because they are part of your higher self learning – that you will eventually take back to your Soul Circle.
