Since the first documented writings of humans, the idea of soul mates has been expressed in various ways and under different forms.
The communion between male and female polarities has always been attributed to great self-awakening and a steep and quick way to spiritual evolution.
They come hand in hand, for you see, via the yin and yang communion the selves become complete.
It is easier to work in a team than to work alone.
The Androgyne represents this very communion of Soul Mates which describes a person of both genders: both female and male.
It is not however the idea presented in today’s world where people tend to change their sexes or where the chemicals and hormones in foods lead to sexual indeterminacy among the population.
The Androgyne myth talks about the female and male polarities becoming one.
Adam was originally a complete man with both female and male polarities.
It is said that God decided to separate these two polarities via the removal of Adam’s rib and create his female counterpart.
It is the duality of spirit and emotions that took birth at the formation of Eve.
Whether it was the true God, which I highly doubt, or some higher dimension intervention to experiment on Man, the result was devastating, leading to the fall of Man, as described in many ancient tablets and writings.
While self-improvement and spiritual evolution can be achieved alone, by doing it together with your soul mate will only ease up the process and make it more natural – the way it was meant to.
Doing it on your own will probably incur additional reincarnations on your part, since the cycle can never be complete until the individual has become one with his female counterpart, and male counterpart respectively.
But finding your soul mate is not an easy process, especially in a society which promotes promiscuity and self-exploration (if you know what i mean).
People are led astray in believing that sleeping around with hundreds of people will earn them anything more than accumulation of residual energies and emotional distress and addiction.
Past cultures and civilizations where not making it easier either, for the soul mates rarely had the chance to meet and live a life of harmony, love and spiritual practice due to the arranged marriages that took place.
If hundreds of years ago people had no choice in who they were supposed to be together with, nowadays people are presented with the illusion of free choice.
This ability of actually being able to choose who you will be with cannot be used properly because from a young age, people have been bombarded with promiscuity and all sorts of hidden agenda to destroy this sacred communion of soul mates.
As difficult as it might be to find your soul mate, it is so much harder to actually stay with him/her.
Temptation is at every turn and the notion of soul mate will quickly be replaced only with ideas of sex and sexual attraction.
Sexual attraction is a key element to develop magnetism towards soul mates, but it is not the only one, and if you fall into the trap of choosing a partner solely based on this factor, you will end up miserable and unable to lead a happy life.
Who is your soul mate, how can we spot him or her?
Do you know that expression that opposites attract each other?
Well that is only available in physics and for magnets.
As human beings, we attract that which we are.
Similar people will always stick together.
It is not that easy to identify this communion of soul mates, especially when we have been desensitized to the natural ability of love and creating a connection with another human being.
Love and connection does not produce income for the society, so there is no point in promoting it.
Even so, when you do meet your soul mate, the energy between you two will be unstoppable.
You will feel drawn to each other from the very second you meet.
Not only will there be sexual attraction but also an intellectual and spiritual connection as well.
You will feel as if you’ve met your partner before and that you’ve known each other for a very long time.
You can just be yourself from the first time you meet and acceptance on both parts will be involuntary and beautiful.
But sometimes, this electric attraction will lack from one of the meant to be soul mates.
It can happen for a lot of reasons, one being the process of brainwashing that he or she has been exposed to during their early years: education, parenting, TV, friends etc.
So by no means, I am not telling you to not explore with several partners until you have discovered your soul mate.
I am just saying that you should be selective and to take your time. Do not throw yourself in the bed of sex, desire and emotions with the first come.
Also, a little bit of exploration will also make you sure of your soul mate when you meet them.
You will compare and you will realise he or she is the one.
What is the driving aspect of finding a soul mate?
Do not confuse desperation of getting married, of not being single or the “old itch” with the communion of soul mates.
Those are primal instincts of reproduction which mother earth have programmed into us to facilitate the continuity of our species.
We are well beyond that point and besides the fact that we are already over 7 billion people on the planet, reproducing just to satisfy the primal urge, brings us closer to animals, and further away from being humans.
The real and pure driving aspect of finding a soul mate is based on many other planes, besides the natural instinct ones.
If you just want to live the dream presented on TV, adverts, news and magazines, forget about it.
This is about fulfilling a deeper need. A need of become whole.
It’s the need that tells you to find something, to find someone. To go and travel to a specific place by instinct. To go and take a specific course in French or Arts.
It’s the drive that tells you that freedom awaits the moment you meet your soul mate.
For you see, the communion of soul mates leads to freedom, and both of you will involuntarily respect this freedom.
When can you expect to meet your soul mate?
You can either meet him/her now, you could have met him/her in the past or anytime in the near future or during your the next life .
The time of meeting your soul mate depends on your state of evolution.
Before coming to earth, both of you had a pre-set plan in which both of you should meet when you meet some specific requirements: be it career, passions, spirituality, health or fitness.
Chances are that you will be derailed from reaching that particular goal that will lead you into the arms of your soul mate.
So it may never happen.
It all has to be at the right time and place for the communion of soul mates to happen.
Where can we expect to meet our soul mate?
Look to your right.
It could be him/her.
It could be your neighbour, your class mate, your co-worker.
Your soul mate could be waiting for you in Australia if you have so decided beforehand to meet.
It is all about that deep intuition which guides you via your higher consciousness to go and visit specific places around the world.
The feeling of longing to a different country, the depression in one place and the ecstasy in another place are all signs of your higher consciousness telling you to move your butt out of the house, city, country or continent.
Even if you won’t find your soulmate overseas, you are still in a win-win situation if you go traveling.
By exploring different cultures and lifestyles, you will evolve. You will become a better version of yourself.
Chances are that when you come back home, you will be on par with your potential soul mate who maybe lives just right down the street from your house.
It is no coincidence that recently people have never felt emptier, depressed and without a meaning in life, other than work and money.
It is time to admit to ourselves and to realise that the communion of soul mates is the key to happiness and spiritual prosperity.
Keep your eyes opened and grow as much as you can. Happiness is just right around the corner or at 7000 km.
