The Real Story on Finding Your Soul Mate – Dr John F Demartini

“Be yourself.” Your mother and anyone else who’s ever counseled you on love have probably told you this. It’s straightforward advice that most of us take as useless, empty flattery, as in “You’re great the way you are, and if people don’t recognise that, they’re fools.” Yeah, okay. Thanks, Mum.

Until you’re ready to look deeper, such advice can seem impractical. But let’s dive below the surface: If you’d truly love to “find” and create a lasting bond with a soul mate, and not just have a few dates (or decades of wedded mediocrity), it’s best to start with yourself. It’s a sign of maturity and wisdom when you prepare for a loving connection by realising your own wholeness. You are not lacking in anything. You encompass all things, and so does everyone else.

When you’re being true to your heart and to what you love, you increase the probability of attracting those who are also committed living in that manner.

When you focus on yourself first, you can walk into a relationship empowered and aware of your own fullness, instead of being driven by a sense of need or desperation. A soul mate isn’t someone who gives you what you lack, but instead is a person who can share your life, for whatever period of time. Together, you can explore something magical that transcends comparing similarities and differences and enters into the realm of true love.

Movies and fairy tales aside, the great beauty of recognising a soul mate isn’t the moment of “You complete me,” so much as “You see me.” When you’re being true to your heart and to what you love, you increase the probability of attracting those who are also committed living in that manner. You can know the real person instead of falling for the facade, and in turn, be cherished for who you really are. When you appreciate that you and others have a balance of all traits, actions, and inactions and that their forms are determined by each individual’s values, then you can set reasonable expectations, which is essential to initiating steadfast and loving relationships.

Words of Power

I encompass all things, and so does everyone else.

My soul mate is around me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

I let others see me in my fullness so that I may be loved.

I cherish all my traits, and I use them wisely.
