Every time the term “soul mate” is brought up, people jump to the conclusion that it means their future loving spouse or partner for life. However, from my own angelic communication as well as revelations by professional mediums (e.g. Lisa Williams and James Van Praagh ) and regression therapists (e.g. Dr. Michael Newton), the definition is much broader than that. Basically the term implies another soul whom we have known prior to our birth. Often it also means we have had many shared incarnations in the past with this soul.
Since it’s impossible to learn all of Earth’s lessons in one lifetime, souls do come back again and usually with familiar souls. As such, we can have more than one soul mate. Also, when soul mates meet, it can yield both a romantic or non-romantic relationship. This may disappoint people who opine that soul mates must be their future loving partners. Not too long ago, when a reiki student of mine practiced reiki on herself, she caught a vision of her past life. One the characters in that vision was a friend (but not her current boyfriend) in this current life. She herself felt a strong connection with this person and was curious about this ‘feeling’. So, I meditated and consulted Archangel Michael and was told that the two souls had shared several incarnations before and are soul mates. Apparently, in one lifetime, one became the parent, the other, a child. In another incarnation, they had a brother-sister relationship. In that lifetime, my student played the role of a sister. Interestingly, the friend who was in my reiki student’s past life vision also felt that he was formerly a brother to her!
Another example was an odd experience for me – a lady sought reiki healing from me but apparently a spiritual being was following/disturbing her when she arrived at my house. A clairvoyant who was with me told us that the being is the departed soul of a friend of that lady. This lady explained that a male friend had just passed away recently leaving behind a wife and kids. She told me that this wife’s life with the husband (i.e. departed soul) was a struggle as he didn’t earn enough to provide for the family. The wife was compelled to take up a job to help out. Oddly, despite her disappointment, she felt she was fated to be with him. Subsequently, the clairvoyant said there was something that the soul wanted to convey so I then asked Archangel Michael for help. The soul’s message was that he and his wife are soul mates and sought forgiveness for any apparent wrongdoings but he also wished to clarify that he was merely a playing a role to help his wife learn certain lessons in life. So, because this soul wanted my reiki client to convey this message to the wife, the soul followed her to my house.
In summary, the journey of souls is very diverse and complex. As humans, we have so many preconceived notions of how things such as relationship works. In a way, we are very limited in our perceptions and opinions. I suppose that is why a renowned channeler of divine messages, Lee Carroll keeps reminding us this – “Drop the human bias. Don’t think like a human being. Think like a spiritual being!”
