Reshaping What You Know About Soulmates

Reshaping What You Know About Soulmates

We typically have a huge misconception about soul mates and what one exactly is.

We all have those moments where we meet somebody for the very first time and immediately feel a strong connection.

Not even in a romantic sense, but when you talk to this person everything makes sense and feels right. Conversation flows naturally. You feel excited and giddy inside because you are having such an incredible time in this person’s presence. You feel like you can talk about anything and everything with this person without judgment.

Very quickly you realize you are sharing the deeper parts of your heart and mind with ease, without a second thought. You feel beyond comfortable and genuinely accepted by this person. This, my friend, is how you know you have encountered one of your soul mates.

Yes, you can have more than one soul mate.

There is not a single human your soul is meant to spend forever with. Your soul is meant to run free. Your soul is meant to welcome and embrace those special others inside of its chambers without hesitation.

We typically have a huge misconception about soul mates and what one exactly is. We hear the term soul mate and immediately think of a significant other. We think of our future husbands or wives, whoever they may be.

This mindset is so common amongst people. It is ingrained in our minds as a black and white concept, so no wonder more of us do not think of soul mates in a different light.

Let’s work to view it from a different perspective.

Try to explore the idea that a true soulmate can be, and often is, non-romantic. It could be a friend, parent, sibling, or whoever you are dating. It could even be a person you had a single interaction with. You could have one or a multitude of each.

Time is no factor. Nobody develops into your soulmate over a set period of time. Recognizing your soulmate is meant to be easy, it is not something you should have to dig for and investigate. If you know, you know. It is simply a feeling you get.

There is no limit to how many soul mates you will encounter in a single lifetime. That is the beauty of it all.

Think of it as a lifelong journey to discovering and unveiling your gallery of soul mates.

It is pretty exciting to think you have not met all of your soulmates yet. It gives you something to look forward to in life. If anything, let it reassure you that better friends and people are going to be introduced to you sometime down the line.

If you are in a bad place now and lack support or do not feel a spiritual connection with another person, know that it is coming.

Whether it is by chance or destiny, you already have and will continue to encounter those few special people in your life that you connect with on such a deeply intimate level.

It truly is a magical and one of a kind experience.

18. They have learned how to eat unhealthy food every day for a whole summer and stay in shape... or try to at least.

19. They also are obviously not a diva when it comes to material needs...they went a whole summer without even air conditioning and never complained.

21. They love God, living for Him, and have already made a difference in many children's lives... they are the real MVPS.

If you are still looking for a place to work this summer and love adventure, Jesus, and children, apply for Camp Crestridge for Girls; they still have many positions available. I'll be there so you should too!

If you are a boy apply for Camp Ridgecrest for Boys!

You've Heard Of 'How To Be Single,' But Let's Talk About 'How To Be Romantic'

For some of us, it takes work to be cutesy and romantic.


Okay, I'm probably the least romantic person anyone has ever met. Not to say that I'm a bad girlfriend or that I'm not caring. I just find love in simple things like knowing what to order for them at restaurants, doing their laundry, planning unique dates, or cooking for them. It's not that I'm opposed to being arduous, I've just never been a chocolate and flowers kind of girl. I'm more of a Mongolian hot pot and "let's walk across the Brooklyn Bridge!" kind of girl. I appreciate some effort, tailoring something to fit a person's idiosyncratic personality or general spontaneity, not how flowery something looks. Not saying that I'm not feminine, I'm just my own entity, so to speak, and that translates into my love life. Needless to say, I thought I should learn how the other half lives, so I've challenged myself to take a course on being a classic/hopeless romantic just to understand how others think and who knows I might change some of my habits!

1. Leave notes

I think it's a really cute and simple idea that I will try to do because it makes everything very personal.

2. Write them a poem

I've had this done for me but I've never actually done it, because believe it or not, I didn't like to read or write poems up until this year.

3. Cuddling

Okay, so I'm not a cuddler, I have no idea why — it's more or less a personal space and attachment issue, I guess. I love hugs though! I guess I just have to be in the mood to cuddle and at times I can be. Other times it just makes me nervous.

4. Dedicate a song to them on the radio

It seems like the people on the radio that do this are crazy in love and honestly, to be able to have the ability to go on the radio and just declare your love for someone else is really inspiring.

5. Surprise them!

I personally cannot stand surprises, but I love to surprise other people and just be spontaneous, so I sort of do this already.

6. Carve your names into a tree

I've thought about doing this, but I've never got around to it, so I promise one day I will.

7. Go see a romantic movie

Nope, nope, I'll barf! Not happening, strictly horror movies for this girl, sorry!

8. Make them a care package

See, this makes me think a lot about what really defines romantic, because I do this all the time, but I don't consider it romantic, I just think it's sweet.

9. Take a walk on the beach together

I've done this, but I have to be doing this while looking for seashells or I feel like I'll be bored.

10. Make a CD for them
