Soul Mirror

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…”
Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love)

I found some quiet, alone time late last night as I experienced “Eat, Pray, Love” at the theater.  The film is very close to the book as it covers forgiveness, love, loneliness, self soothing, letting go, fear, trust, emotional pain, and exploring your own truth.
I believe soul mates come into our lives in many different forms at different times, when we require a particular lesson.  Some remain through our lifetime, some come and go, and some we know only for a brief time.  All mirrors are valuable lessons, the key is recognizing your own shadow in what your soul mate is dancing for you.  Allow the joy, anger, pain, laughter, frustration, and euphoria to settle and rest with your spirit.  Even when you feel lost, you are simply riding your waves to the lighthouse.
Look in the mirror.  What do you see?  Ahh, the unveiling of you and me.

  1. This is awesome Cindy and speaks Only Truth!

    I know who my true soulmates have been!!

    They caused me intense pain, suffering and disbelief!!!

    The miracle in all of my pain is that I have found forgiveness and yes love for those soulmates.

    The love is that from the highest place.

    I know that these souls don’t belong in my energy or life and will remain absent in it.

    But I thank them from the deepest place in my heart and soul for showing me the Truth of who I am and what I don’t need in my life.

    My gratitude for the pain is enormous!

    Thank you for this post and it is a TRUE reminder of what a real soulmate is!!!!


  2. Funny how you used a sailing analogy cuz I was just thinking along those lines, too. In fact, I just sailed over the horizon to your last post and the quote, ” Try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride…”  Life, like sailing, is all about balance, maximizing positive and reducing negative forces. Once that is achived, you just keep a light hand on the tiller and let the boat, or life, carry you through the choppy spots and onwards to a beautiful adventure.

  3. Thank you, my friends, for your wonder-full comments.

    I love seeing you on here, Cindy!! Thank you for all your love and support:)

    Maria, your love is always from the highest place, which is why your energy heals so many. You always see the light in every experience, which in turn, becomes drawn to your light. You are a lighthouse;)

    Paul, I love your analogy! “…keep a light hand on the tiller and let the boat, or life, carry you through the choppy spots…” Man, you’re in a great place;)

    Peace out, friends…
