The 10 Elements of a Soulmate

As the American writer Richard Bach said, “A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are.”

Ah, soulmates. The epitome of love and partnership. In our fast-paced chaotic world, which boasts all sorts of different people, we find ourselves skimming through more relationships than we’d like in order to find that one person who can truly open our locks.

Not just anyone can fulfill you the way your soulmate can. There’s a world of a difference between your soulmate, your heart’s other half and a life partner — a person who lacks the elements to mold perfectly to you. Your soulmate makes you feel entirely whole, healed and intact, like no piece is missing from the puzzle. A life partner, on the other hand, can be a great supporter and long-time companion, but is limited in his or her capacity to enrich your spirit.

Most of us remain in life-partner relationships because we “settle,” for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, we may have a real subconscious fear of being alone. And since we’re biologically designed to fall in love, it’s only natural that we pair up in this world. But we sometimes prolong what are meant to be temporary relationships and mistakenly settle into them for good. There are relationships which must last for a certain period of time to close out a karmic chapter of life, relationships in which we’re meant to have children with our partner but not necessarily remain with them, and relationships which are just plain confusing because a melting pot of emotions doesn’t allow us to see our predestined path.

I’ve seen it all in my practice as a psychologist, from couples who married their childhood loves to people in their retirement years who still struggle with commitment issues. Most of us fall somewhere between these two extremes, meaning that we experienced several relationships before finding the person we believe to be our perfect pairing. Whether you’re currently married, in a relationship, or contemplating entering a relationship with a new love interest, it is crucial that you know what role this person will play in your life. After all, there’s no avoiding the inevitable, often uncomfortable question we must ask ourselves: Is this the person I was bound by destiny to share my life with? Or did I settle too quickly into a relationship with someone who can never complete me?

No matter the category you fit into to, there are several indications which clearly outline a soulmate bond (or a lack of bond) between you and your partner. As you go through this list, think about your partner or potential partner and evaluate whether they meet the soulmate crite

The 10 Elements of a Soulmate:

1. It’s something inside. Describing how a soulmate makes you feel is difficult. It’s a tenacious, profound and lingering emotion which no words can encompass.

2. Flashbacks. If your partner is your soulmate, chances are he or she has been present in your past lives. Soulmates often choose to come back together during the same lifetime and scope each other out in the big world. You might suddenly and briefly experience flashbacks of your soulmate. You might even feel an odd sense of déjà vu, as if the moment in time has already taken place, perhaps a long time ago, perhaps in a different setting.

3. You just get each other. Ever met two people who finsh each other’s sentences? Some people call that spending too much time together, but I call it a soulmate connection. You might experience this with your best friend or your mother, but it is the telltale sign of a soulmate when you experience it with your partner.

4. You fall in love with his (or her) flaws. No relationship is perfect, and even soulmate relationships will experience ups and downs. Still, that bond will be much harder to break. Soulmates have an easier time of accepting, even learning to love, each other’s imperfections. Your relationship is more likely to be a soulmate match if you both love each other exactly as you each are, accepting both the great and awful tendencies we all have.

5. It’s intense. A soulmate relationship may be more intense than normal relationships, in both good and sometimes bad ways. The most important thing is that, even during negative episodes, you’re focused on resolving the problem and can see beyond the bad moment.

6. You two against the world. Soulmates often see their relationship as “us against the world.” They feel so linked together that they’re ready and willing to take on any feat of life, so long as they have their soulmate by their side. Soulmate relationships are founded on compromise and unity above all else.

7. You’re mentally inseparable. Soulmates often have a mental connection similar to twins. They might pick up the phone to call each other at the exact same time. Though life may keep you apart at times, your minds will always be in tune if you are soulmates.

8. You feel secure and protected. Regardless of the gender of your partner, he or she should always make you feel secure and protected. This means that if you’re a man, yes, your woman should make you feel protected, too! Your soulmate will make you feel like you have a guardian angel by your side. A person who plays on your insecurities, whether consciously or subconsciously, is not your soulmate.

9. You can’t imagine your life without him (or her). A soulmate is not someone you can walk away from that easily. It is someone you can’t imagine being without, a person you believe is worth sticking with and fighting for.

10. You look each other in the eye. Soulmates have a tendency to look into each other’s eyes when speaking more often than ordinary couples. It comes naturally from the deep-seated connection between them. Looking a person in the eye when speaking denotes a high level of comfort and confidence.

Whether you’re designed by the universe to be soulmates or two loving people who have settled for each other’s strengths and weaknesses, the decision is yours. The beauty of free will is that you can remain in or change any relationship as you see fit. To be with your soulmate is one of the precious treasures of life. And if you feel you’ve found your heart’s other half, I wish you endless days of joy and laughter, and countless nights of deep embrace, unraveling the mysteries of the universe one by one.

The Role of Love Quotes

Quotes are a great way to tell your feelings to your crush, wife, friends or parents. There are numerous quotes such as cute love quotes, movie love quotes and so much more.

A famous love quote can make anything more romantic, like a radio greetings, cell phone text messages and personal letters. Famous love quotes help convey a message that one find it difficult to express in his own words. It fosters a better relationship, or helps rekindle old feelings. It has more positivism to it than one can possibly imagine.

loveAll people in any age group use love quotes at some point in their lives. Whether they are youngsters experiencing crushes, a divorced looking for a new relationship or an old person falling in love again, almost every person love to use quotes in order to tell their deepest and truest feelings.

Cute love quotes are classified as those sayings that could not be taken as very serious and deep, yet it conveys the real emotions of love in a more playful tone. It still ignites the same passion. These are often sent to those just starting out a relationship, or to begin conveying feelings of fondness for another person. It will be awkward to say to someone you barely know the words, “I love you,” yet a cute love quote will send the message that you are beginning to like that person.

Cute love quotes can also be everyday messages that a couple will send to one another to spice up a day, especially if the stress from work is creeping in. For example, if one says he finds a girl as bright as a sunshine, he does not mean this literally. He is complimenting the girl and giving subtle hints of adoration.

Many people consider love as the most wonderful gift of God to mankind. And for this reason alone, love quotes will be perpetualized. People go on a life journey, and they will go through different stages of life. These love quotes, though mushy at times, will help them live by.

There will be times when we will be left alone to deal with our own emotions, be it happy or sad. And love quotes are just within reach to nurture these feelings. It makes us grow stronger and steadfast to our beliefs.

Our stronghold to love quotes is manifest in many ways. These words are scattered in our scrapbooking crafts, in the photographs we cherish and put in frames, in our bookmarks, posters and other memorabilia.

Do You Believe The True Love

Anything is possible in love.If one has to break down the plots of most romantic novels, they would actually seem quite silly. So why then are most of the romantic novels in the world such bestsellers then? Because love sells. Love stories simply stand the test of time, and give generations hope on which to build their perfect love story. The earliest love stories were often told in the form of songs, or ballads passed down from one generation to another, till they were written as stories to read.Boys will hope they find a woman who will stand by them and girls will keep hoping they find men who will die for them. It is not for nothing that generations have grown up on Mills and Boons, and Danielle Steele. It is all part of the race in the search for the perfect love story.

tiny love storiesWhich sad love story left the deepest impression on you?Why is that? Why do some books/movies tug harder at our heartstrings than others? I believe it is because they involve us so fully that we virtually become the characters – thinking their thoughts, feeling their anguish.Drawn into their world, we forget our own for a while and inhabit a different skin. This has especial potency if their life is colorful and exciting, as fictional lives tend to be. And if that is true for the reader, how much more true might it be for the writer?

There are some love stories below.Maybe you have been ever like them so much.

Casablanca is a 1942 American romantic drama film directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid, and featuring Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and Dooley Wilson. Set during World War II, it focuses on a man torn between, in the words of one character, love and virtue. He must choose between his love for a woman and helping her and her Czech Resistance leader husband escape from the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis.

Titanic was a 1943 Nazi propaganda film made during World War II in Berlin by Tobis Productions for UFA, which was later banned from Nazi Germany by Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. The film used the sinking of the RMS Titanic as a setting for an attempt to discredit British and American capitalist dealings and glorify the bravery and selflessness of German men. Today, Titanic is known for its extremely dark production history and, ironically, became the symbol of the corruption and “sinking” of the Third Reich itself.

Roman Holiday is a 1953 romantic comedy directed and produced by William Wyler and starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. It was written by John Dighton and Dalton Trumbo, though with Trumbo on the Hollywood blacklist, he did not receive a credit; instead, Ian McLellan Hunter fronted for him. Trumbo’s credit was reinstated when the film was released on DVD in 2003. On December 19, 2011, full credit for Trumbo’s work was restored.Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance; the screenplay and costume design also won.

In One Love Relationship You Need To Learn How To Forgive

Learning how to forgive and extend love and compassion to others is one of the most important things we can learn. Holding grievances hurts ourselves far more than anything anyone else has ever appeared to “do” to us. It puts a veil over the Light that shines within us, cutting us off from our experience of being connected with God, and therefore, love.

forgive in loveOver the years people have done some really hurtful things to me, like wise, I have done some really hurtful things to others. A lesson that has taken me my whole life to learn is forgiveness. It is my husband that taught it to me. You see, he believes that in order for one to forgive with a true heart, one must be in need of forgiveness. I am such a person.

Sometime ago a man did something to me without knowing my situation. He put his hands on me and pushed me down to the floor. I was so hurt. This man never, not once, asked me to forgive him for his actions. He felt he had a right to do what he did. I ask, do we have the right to hurt another person? I had to accept the fact that he would never ask because he did not feel he was wrong, in fact, he felt I should apologize. Really? Well, years have gone by and I am still thinking about it. I told myself that I forgave him. If that were true, why am I still contemplating on this matter? I have not truly forgiven him.

Before we can learn how to forgive others, we generally have to do some self-healing first. The first step is to acknowledge where we are in pain. We can’t heal something until we admit to ourselves that it is there and takeresponsibility for our own feelings.Then we can bring loving compassion, acceptance andforgiveness to ourselves. After that, it is easier to extend compassion, love and forgiveness to others.

We learn how to forgive “others” for our own healing because actually there is only One Being here, and it is Us. Whether we appear to forgive someone “out there” or ourselves, it is all Us.

After years of holding onto some large grievances, I finally generated enough desire to learn how to forgive because I was tired of suffering over the negativity I was choosing to hold onto. It was just too debilitating. At that point my strong desire attracted the introduction of a very clear path to learn how to forgive and heal anything, finally and completely.

Whether the pain is mental, physical or both, forgiving a loved one who has caused you distress can be a scary and often tiresome ordeal. Regardless, forgiving is a personal choice undertaken to help you grow and heal as a person — not to help the other person or condone his actions. Once you understand how and why you hurt, and exactly why you need to forgive the other person, the act itself need not be particularly difficult or complicated

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” ~ Lewis B. Smedes

Why is forgiveness such a loaded topic? Because many believe that somehow the victim has to be the bigger person, raise himself up to a higher standard than the perpetrator and make amends to reach the Kingdom of Heaven.

We have all experienced some level of betrayal in our lives. We think we cannot bear the searing rod iron-hot pain so we develop coping mechanisms such as self-abuse, angry relationships and continued drama cycles. In many of the personal stories Ms. Whitney conveys, people held onto their pain for years. In the book, she illustrates the story about a fugitive responsible for the death of a policeman in the face of anti-Vietnam protests who didn’t fully accept responsibility for her acts until well after she had handed herself in to the authorities two decades later. It wasn’t until she released her anger toward the U.S. governmentfrom the 1960s that she could apologize to the family whom she had caused so much pain.

“Apology is necessary to begin the journey of forgiveness within a relationship,” claims Dr. Greer. But what happens if you do not receive that apology? In many cases, the victims in Ms. Whitney’s book did not. She interviewed people from Rwanda and Nazi Germany who experienced so much sorrow. Millions of people died at the hand of a few. It is only now that people can speak of the abomination they experienced.

Without apology relationships cannot thrive. And so how does one go about forgiving someone who does not wish to be forgiven? The relationship ends, if there ever was one. That is where self-healing comes into play.

Accept the fact that, regardless of how much you love the person, he may not care that you are offering to forgive him. Do not take this personally. The goal is to feel better about yourself and to know you are doing the right thing.

Focus on the positive, no matter how the situation ultimately ends. Even if the person finds fault in your forgiveness and no longer wants you in his life, you must focus on your own life and redirect the negative energy toward attaining your goals. Do not dwell on the situation, and endeavor to move forward.

Amend your own story of the situation in your mind, to remind yourself that you did the right thing. Should the situation not resolve itself the way you had hoped, remember that you attempted to forgive the person and that to forgive is a noble action.

Warning – “The Love That No One Loves To Love”

LoveSo much has been said of friendship and love that it seems on one level redundant to even write about it. In my own life I have found insight, understanding, awareness and suffering, as I engage the pursuit of its experience and the never ending conversations that occur around the dance of its expression.

Perhaps where there is loss and grieving around friendship and love, it is only then that we seek a deeper level of its understanding, meaning, expression, need and purpose in life? Perhaps a hunger or desperation inside guides and motivates our behaviors in seeking, engaging and celebrating its expression; to continue to find deeper layers of its company within all our relations?

1) Love – What’s Love Got to Do with it Anyway?

People get all caught up in what they think is the meaning (or feeling) of LOVE. But little do they know what love means or what role it should play in our lives rather than the actual (factual) role love really plays. Very few people have grasped the real concept of love in any way it should be intended.

The traditional story of love – A boy meets a girl; they play house, get married and have kids. [The End] Or so it may seem. Ha-ha-ha, that couldn’t be further from the truth in any language of love.

The Flip Side – Boy meets girl; beats girl, rapes girl and makes her pregnant then leaves girl alone to deal with baby and problems all on her own. Now what is really crazy about this picture is that in this scenario, both the boy and girl are missing the whole point when the boy comes back and does it all over again and the girl accepts this as “real love”. Also in this scenario, the girl usually not only bears the burden of showing the guy how she can “take a lickin and keep on tickin”, but she is also the financier for the family while the boy continues his streak of abuse and misuse of the girl and often the children they share. Is this the young love you know about? This is why people often ask “What’s Love Got to Do with it Anyway”? If this is all it is, it makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

2) Myths – Mysticism behind “The Love of Ages” I’m guessing you know by know that love is not all it’s cracked up to be. I know of a lot of people who look for love and never find it because they don’t really know exactly what they are looking for… It seems that some people or Mystics, looking through rose-colored glasses, hoping to find that special or right person to complement their lives. Truly, I wish that for you too. However, I am a realist and deal with the reality that no one is perfect and we have to have our act together in order to attract a like kind mate. I find that people are attracted to other people who have similar interest or habits. In other words, you can’t be a jerk expecting to find an angle… It just won’t happen. You may find a similar jerk or even half a jerk, but the reality in reflection of your qualities, that person will still be a jerk just like you. So, all I am saying here, is that if you want something better — Stand back and take a good look in the mirror or do a little soul-searching before you go on the hunt for a mate (just like you).

Scenario-1:

Here’s a story of a young woman like myself that is modest and kind. An independent young woman who has completed college and has her whole life and a promising career ahead of her. However, she has been so busy trying to be successful that she one day stares in the mirror and realizes that she doesn’t feel fulfilled. She is missing a significant other. She has no man in her life. So she asks herself, what if I want kids sometime in the near future? What type man may be a good fit for me? It is at that point she begins her journey starting with a laundry list of what I want my man to be like. It starts out like this: I want my man to be…

  • Good looking (he must be buff) ‘Built to the Hilt’
  • He must have money (lots of money) because he has to buy me a house and a car and everything else I want
  • My man will be smart – A Harvard graduate – Summa Cum Laude or PhD, (you know the type)
  • He has to have an expensive sports car (show he can show me off when we are together)
  • Blah, blah, blah, blah… You know how that story goes — Frankly it never ends

Either way you look at it, when expectations start out as a disaster, they often end the same way! In most cases when someone starts out with a laundry list of things they want, they are asking far more than they are able or willing to give of themselves anyway. So why pretend? Let’s try to deal with the real world here and we may come out on top.

Scenario-2: I know many, many people have their cake and are eating it too… But needless to say, this is not really what they want. The cake has gone sour and the marriage has been long sense dead. But who cares, we’ve got children and I can’t get a job, so I will have to ride it out to the end. Hoping the man will croak before she does and she can run off into the sunset with cash in hand along with a new man. Isn’t that why young women marry older men anyway? It sure ain’t about love is it? Johnny may have come lately; but I assure you he is never going away soon enough or if he did, you won’t get any of his ‘cash to carry’. Am I right?

The mystery of ages in the above cases is that – Love does not come with “Rose Colored Glasses” or with “The Glass Half Full”. In most cases it comes in a manner that is “Frothy and Filthy”. You have to make the best out of a bad situation or jump ship. The sooner one realizes that nothing in life is promised other than life and death… it is at that point we may began to accept the reality of how love really works in the real world in which we live.

3) Masks – “Which Face are we really putting on today” The Face of Despair? Some of us know what “The Face of Despair” looks like. Do you? In most cases it like a Happy Family Life in public view, but behind closed doors, one or the other spouse is often in dire straits. In the case of women, they try to appear happy, but under stress of spouse abuse, they tend to become often withdrawn and timid. Appearing only to close friends and family (i.e. sibling or parent) the truth of what is really going on in their lives. They tend to put up with the abuse because they feel they have nowhere to go or are not worthy of love of another man. Even more so, they often feel fear of sudden death or imminent danger from the abusing spouse should they reveal their mistreatment to anyone.

In the case of spousal abuse towards the male counterpart, women that are verbal abusive of just downright mean and bitter towards their mate tends to make the male feel less than a man and have a hard time coping with life in that way. When a male has been stripped of his rights as a man or the head of his household from an overbearing woman, he often reverts into deep depression. I have known cases where the men even suffer a nervous breakdown or worse by committing suicide.

You can often notice the face of despair – When the person you may know that should be in a loving or health relationship appears to be despondent or withdrawn, something is clearly wrong. Why don’t you reach out to see if you can offer loving support? You never know you may just save their lives of give them hope when they may have thought that all hope was lost. Everyone is deserving of some sort of love and kindness… Be the first to say to someone you may know “Let me help you through the rough times”.

4) Warning – “The Love that No one Loves to Love” What to look for from people who say “I Love You to Death”. In most cases, that has a literal connotation to it and means exactly what it says. Unfortunately, in the real world, lots of young people get caught up in this type of “Toxic Love” syndrome and have no earthly idea how to get out alive. It used to be a time when this referred to men only as the toxic lover. But now a days, women to are the deadly ones in a relationship. I can’t figure out who would be the most deadly… But if I had to bet on it, I would bet that women by far are the most deadly of all species.
