If you’re a new reader here you wouldn’t know it but I have deleted a bunch of posts from 2010-2011. They were almost all about my relationship experiences in the 2010-2011 time frame. Pretty personal and definitely easy to misunderstand.
Much of my blogging at the time was about sharing my personal experiences of making very direct inner connections. I had also recognized Rumi as someone who quite literally has provided us with a guide to creating connections that blur boundaries between individuals at all levels.
Reading Rumi can be an experience of reading poetry and all that entails. And it can be the reading of actual descriptions of what happens when you learn to focus your attention and intention on connecting with another. I was stunned by how accurately Rumi was describing my own personal experiences.
I deleted those posts for two reasons. (They aren’t permanently gone, I still have them stored offline.) The first reason, I didn’t want potential romantic partners to read those posts out of context. Considering how I’ve grown and continue to grow I’m a very different person at the end of 2013 than I was in 2010. Second, the relevance of a soulmate in my life is something I view very differently today than it was in 2010.
How so you may ask?
First off let me be clear about where I stand on the reality of soulmates. I do feel there are others who we resonate with and are drawn to at a soul level. Sharing past lives and more also appears to be common. Many past lives, in fact. Soulmate relationships do not necessarily mean being together in this life until one or the other of you die.
More importantly, I’ve found through experience that I can create a deep connection that transcends space, time, emotional, mental, and physical boundaries with anyone. All of us can in fact. Are these individuals soulmates, as well?
Clear attention and intention are about all it takes. Granted, that can be a tall order depending on where you are in your own development. We all are just a choice away at the end of the day.
With the soulmate though, the connection feels like coming home. Or finding someone you didn’t know your were looking for your entire life. Read Rumi. He did a fine job describing what it is to touch another this way.
The desire to connect can also fuel leaps in personal or spiritual development. Sharing the awareness of a deep trans-conscious connection with another person is in fact quite addictive.
While I would caution anyone considering this path I also recognize just how much you can gain in a short time from going down it. Just be ready. Rodeo comes to mind.
This is one of the primary roles of the soulmate in my opinion. Growth. It’s not about heaven on earth. The connection has always been there and will always be there. So why does 60 years on earth make a difference one way or another. Unless, it’s to accomplish something lie growth for one or both of the souls and possibly impact the rest of the world in some way, too.
One day I made a list of the things I could remember experiencing. The items on the list I made would sound like fantasy. Especially, given how they were not just things that happened now and them. They were daily events.
Why exactly did I pull those posts, again?
Because I now finding myself being very cautious about that level of connection. First, I learned how to make the connection. Then I learned what it was like to share that connection with a partner. Last, I learned that choosing to make that level of connection is a very, very serious matter. If one of the people in the connected state is not ready for the connection the relationship can destabilize quickly. And frankly neither person has to be “enlightened” to do it. This stuff is completely amoral. There’s only choices and consequences. Some of the consequences can be a real pain.
I pulled those posts because people need to be careful about these things. You can open yourself up to some serious consequences in these types of connections. They really are not to be taken lightly. Sure it’s all learning and works out in the end. People need to be aware of their vulnerability when creating that opening. People can and do hurt others intentionally with these states of consciousness. You have to be careful and have the right tools.
These days I listen to both my guides and my intuition quite a bit. Also, I take things relationship-wise very, very slow. Turning into an energetic/spiritual phone receiving raw emotions, thoughts, and visions as they happen can be a pain. Especially, since the more intense they are for the other person the more intense they can be for you.
Turning Down the Volume
Once you go down the path of making deep connection you will learn pretty quickly the art of turning down the volume if you want to get anything accomplished in your life. Just like on a radio you need to be able to turn down the volume on the connection. Especially, if your partner hasn’t developed the ability to manage their broadcasts!
Hm. I’m starting to ramble. Soulmate connections are amazing. Really, I would like to be able to share such a connection with a life partner one day. My experiences though have made me very cautious about opening that level of connection too soon. For both our sakes. I would caution anyone opening themselves to be careful as well. A good place to start is with creating the same deep connection with yourself. A topic for another post one day.
