Soul mates are not necessarily our other half,our partner in life or the person we are meant to find and be with til death do us part.That is actually our Life Mate. The one person we are meant to meet and journey through this lifetime side by side,our other half as it were. The other half of our soul. We can have more than one soul mate but usually only one Life Mate. We can find love again if we lose our Life Mate and have a fulfilling ,loving relationship but it is rarely the same deep soul connection.
A Soul Mate is a person who will come into our life to teach us our life lessons and stay only until we experience those lessons that we have agreed to learn before we are born.Those lessons can be harsh,cruel,sad,devastating,joyful but they are necessary for our growth. Some religions believe we keep coming back again and again until we experience each lesson and learn what we need to learn.
That does not mean we cannot learn from a Life Mate as well as a Soul Mate.We grow and become who we are meant to be from both teachers. Not everyone meets their Life Mate but we all meet our Soul Mates.
Mirrors in your life and what are they beyond the obvious? Think back on someone who pisses you off for no apparent reason.You just don't like the person! They make you angry to even hear them speak. Take a close look at them and ask yourself what is it about them you really dislike. Then take a closer look and you will realize that you see in them something that you don't like about yourself.They are your MIRROR.We can learn a lot about ourselves by observing our mirror and it isn't always pleasant.However ,it can be very enlightening.
Life is a gift to be lived to the fullest and remember that life is a journey and not a destination!
