We come back through many lives with these multiple souls or “other Past” of our soul to learn lessons through meetings and partings, happiness and sadness and the highs and lows of everyday life. On some level we are all soul mates learning and growing from each other.
Not all these lessons are loving or comforting. Lessons in forgiveness and unconditional love can be very painful and difficult.
Often we are the “victim” and sometimes we are the negative or the mirror(reflection) that shows another soul their light to learn a lessons that may not be pleasant to teach or for them to learn. This is where free will and choice comes into play, how we react or view our relationships. Someone can come into your life and cause you much pain and suffering because there is a soul agreement between you to grow and evolve in love, compromise and forgiveness. To learn the lesson, accept it and move on to the next one.
This is one perception of karma and the “tit for tat” of what you did it to me I will do it to you creates so much stress and anger. It has gone on for lifetimes if you have not broken the cycle with the lessons. You break the cycle by acting rather than reacting, by freeing the ego from the soul and learning to love and forgive. Mind you, this does not mean being stepped on we must maintain some self respect but we may choose (if this is a negative karmic soulmate connection) to wish them well with love and release them. Not all lessons will be learned in one lifetime or from one soulmate, which is why we have multiple soulmates.
-A “soulmate” does not mean a relationship that requires no effort or that you will stare into each others eyes and ride off into the sunset. It is about growth.
Our greatest joy and our greatest pain are both conceived in these multiple soulmate relationships, our feelings intensified when it is our soul connections, whether for good or bad. You can often spot a soul mate or karmic relationship by “love at first site” or “revulsion at first site”, depending upon the lessons you’ve contracted to learn from this soul.
One can live a lifetime in joy and harmony with a resonant soulmate, and this a beautiful, but rare gift. And it does not mean you do not have to work at it, learn from it and grow.
