A Case for Soulmates

Perhaps Carlos Santana has said it best: Everything tastes better when you share it with your soulmate.

Because of the extraordinary benefits that radiate from people living in harmonious partnership, it’s time to shine light on ways to manifest such connections. Soulmate-love heals while stamping out loneliness and fostering happiness.

The Soulmate Secret

Soulmate couples have a secret they rarely speak about: they feel fortunate to no longer have to search for true love because they are living it every day. They realize how blessed they are to be spending their days in the embrace of their best friend, lover, and sacred partner. Rather than brag or shout it from the rooftops, they quietly relish their relationship and give thanks from a deep place of gratitude.

How do I know? During the past 13 blissful years with my soulmate, Brian, we often talk about how blessed we are to be together and experience a relationship that exceeds our wildest dreams. I began asking other soulmate couples we know what life is like for them. The answers I’ve heard are remarkably similar. In whispered and hushed tones, they have shared with me the wonders and beauty of their partnerships.

Why have we been whispering? Two reasons: first, we are in awe of the sacredness of the union; second, as my friend Monte Farber (co-author of The Soulmate Path) says, “it’s not polite to rub in other people’s faces how wonderful life can be when you are sharing it with your soulmate.”

Soulmate relationships can be compelling, intense, loving communions that have a divine quality. They are about connecting on a deep, soul level as much as every other dimension of human interaction. These soulmate couples have chosen to live with honesty, transparency, deeper love, devotion, openness, vulnerability, and trust. My husband, Brian Hilliard, explains it this way: “In a soulmate relationship one plus one does not equal two, it equals eleven. The love generated in this equation is a gift to the soulmate couple and to the world at large.”

The Reverend Laurie Sue Brockway, author of Your Interfaith Wedding, further explains. “The level of trust between soulmates is profound—and being able to trust another being on so many levels makes life so much easier. You soulmate will mirror your best parts and your shadow self, giving you a chance to heal.”

The World Needs Soulmate Couples to Find Each Other

We all have a stake in people making a soulmate connection, as many as possible and as soon as possible. It is a surefire way to fill our planet with more love.

Some people fear that their day will never come, and that they will not be worthy of soulmate love. But Claire Zammit, co-creator of the Calling in the One online course, explains it this way: “I always thought I was too much of this or not enough of that, but when I met my soulmate I realized I was just right for the person I was destined to be with. It’s amazing to be loved and appreciated so deeply just for being who you authentically are.”

Are soulmate relationships always blissful? Of course not. Soulmates have work to do in the world and it begins in their own relationships. “Your ‘Twin Flame’ will not only bring you to new heights of ecstasy, but also push every one of your buttons and even some you never knew you had,” adds interfaith Revered Victor Fuhrman. “Like all relationships, soulmate unions require time, energy, and attention.

As Otto and Susie Collins so eloquently put it, “they require conscious effort to keep the relationship vibrant, alive, and juicy.”

Despite the occasional upset, argument or breakdown, soulmates are committed to working through the issues with honesty and transparency, knowing that the foundation for their love is strong enough to weather the storm.
