"...and when one of them meets the other half, the actual half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other's sight, as I may say, even for a moment..."
- Plato, The Symposium
Soul memories run deep within us but only some of us will yearn for love that is divine and pure. Finding true love may be the most remarkable, invaluable and indefinable thing that can happen in one's life and only a lucky few will find the one meant for them. This person will be just right for you and you will experience a connection of the soul that cannot be broken by problems of the material world. Nothing can stand in the way of true love but for this to materialize; one has to prepare the soul for such an extraordinary experience.
Most people spend their lives resolving their karma and the process of rinsing your soul of karmic debt may be delayed because of the lack of spiritual enlightenment. Karmic relationships are often confused with soul mates but they are extremely different. The love shared by twin flames shouldn’t be confused with soul mates either, as you may have many soul mates but there is only one twin flame. Your twin flame is your direct counterpart and will be a reflection of you. Those who are waking up to the power of positive thinking, and aspiring to change for the better by seeking spiritual truth, have much to look forward to in life. Blessed will be their existence!
Here are some things that you can do to put an end to Karmic Relationships and to attract the love of a Soulmate or in some cases, the love of a Twin Flame:
Believe in Self-love – Loving yourself doesn't mean you become obsessed with yourself and indulge in excessive self-praise. Loving yourself, as you actually are, and not what you would like to believe requires effort and a critical look at your actions when nobody's around to observe you. But, if you remain true to yourself, you will accept your follies and work on these issues that need to be sorted instead of brushing them under the carpet. Identify your weaknesses and things that you would like to do differently in your life. Be what you’ve always wanted to be and stop pretending to be what you are not.
Discover Contentment – If you aren't content with what you have and follow the path of greed, your life may never bring you the satisfaction that you so deeply desire. There is no end to things that you can acquire in your lifetime, so it’s important to reflect upon what it is that’s most important to you.
Be Generous- All acts of kindness are important in order to make the world we live in a kinder and a happier place. Never hesitate to help someone. Human generosity can make miracles happen!
Say 'Yes' to Honesty – Honesty is the highest of all virtues and those who are bereft of this will rarely find divine love. Be honest to yourself and only then can you be true to the one you love. Make sincere efforts to avoid leading a convenient life built on a foundation of lies.
Practice Kindness – Be kind, not only to those you are close to, but with everyone you come in touch with. Your soul will truly remain at peace when you indulge in acts of unselfishness and are willing to fight all petty emotions that hinder your growth.
Find Hobbies and Interests– Some people may call it a waste of time but it's actually not. Interest and passion make you feel alive and you live your life in a constructive manner. Reading, travelling, painting, sculpting, gardening, playing a sport, cooking - do whatever brings you joy. You will be too busy to crib about things or people.
Keep Negativity Out - Embrace all things positive in your life and surround yourself with people who don't actively belittle others or enjoy mocking others. Be with people you identify with, value and are worth your admiration. Protect your mind from the influence of those who have the ability to fill it with doubts and miserable thoughts.
Think – Thinking is the best thing you can do for yourself. There's a lot of stress on positive thinking and it's all for a reason. Focus on improving your mind and the way you think. Positive thoughts will help you break away from chains that bind you to a mediocre life. Spend time reflecting upon all the things that can make life an adventure for you. Do good things for yourself and others as well.
Release the Past – Many of us live in the past and refuse to actually move on. Do you still look up an ex-boyfriend online? Do you still crib about how things didn’t end well with an ex? Do you sulk and refuse to talk about what’s holding you back? If yes, then you certainly have not moved on. How can anyone walk into your life when there's no space in your heart and life for a new relationship? It's a choice that only you can make, if you wish to see your life change for the better. When you truly forgive and forget someone, the hurt goes away too and you realize it was never worth your time.
Unconditional Love – When you love without any limitations, chances of attracting the love of a Soulmate or a Twin Flame are much higher. Love between two soul mates is no ordinary love and you may need to go to great lengths to win the affections of the one who's meant for you. It may even require sacrifice and in some cases, especially when you are in a Twin Flame relationship, you may have to wait a long time for love to happen. It does not fade away with time and if it does, it was never true love to begin with.
