Day Seventy-Four: Soul Connections Series Lesson One: Soul Mates

57d2de8acc6082029cfdbc819ed3d8c0

Over the next few days we are going to go over some of the different

“spiritual/soul connections” that have been explored over time. I will

discuss one each day over the next three days. The three most prevalent

soul connections are: soul mates, twin souls and twin flames.

There are two types of people in the world today; the people that

truly believe, from the bottom of their very hearts that there is

one person out there that will be their #1, the yin to their yang,

the person that will complete them and love them unconditionally

just the way they are.

Can believing in a soul mate make life more exciting and thrilling or

can it lead to a world of hurt if we never find that “one” and spend

our lives on an endless search for someone more?

Conversely if we only relate to our possible lovers with an air of

superficiality then the magic has been extinguished before it can

begin. We are living in a constant state of numbness. Is that

really living?

How do we navigate the feelings we have when we meet a person

that we deeply connect to? Are the feelings deep love, lust,

like, nurturing…How do we know?

Fear has a tendency to stifle many of our feelings and twist them

into a salty pretzel of confusion and denial-resulting in us stumbling

through life with a blindfold on and no love direction.

The pure excitement of navigating a new relationship can leave

some craving that initial feeling and lead to a life of constant

one night stands or quickie relationships.

A relationship that makes us feel alive and truly ourselves is what

we all strive to find in our lifetime-but in order to find that it

seems we must first love ourselves unconditionally so we are not

always reaching out for someone else to define us and fill the voids

that we have within.

The first soul connection lesson is about soul mates:

Throughout history philosophers like Plato and Edgar Cayce

have used the term soul mates to tell stories that describe

and explain that feeling of deep connection that traditionally

a man and woman feel to one another.

The term soul mates has now evolved to break through gender

roles-one can deeply love anyone else regardless of gender or sexual

orientation.

Wikipedia:

A soulmate is a person with whom one has a feeling of deep or natural affinity.[1] This may involve similarity, love, romance,friendship, intimacy, sexuality, sexual activity, spirituality, or compatibility and trust.[2]

LeeBogle-EternalSoulMates

Here is a list taken from The Huffington Post: The 10 Elements of a Soul Mate

The 10 Elements of a Soulmate:

1. It’s something inside. Describing how a soulmate makes you feel is difficult. It’s a tenacious, profound and lingering emotion which no words can encompass.

2. Flashbacks. If your partner is your soulmate, chances are he or she has been present in your past lives. Soulmates often choose to come back together during the same lifetime and scope each other out in the big world. You might suddenly and briefly experience flashbacks of your soulmate. You might even feel an odd sense of déjà vu, as if the moment in time has already taken place, perhaps a long time ago, perhaps in a different setting.

3. You just get each other. Ever met two people who finsh each other’s sentences? Some people call that spending too much time together, but I call it a soulmate connection. You might experience this with your best friend or your mother, but it is the telltale sign of a soulmate when you experience it with your partner.

4. You fall in love with his (or her) flaws. No relationship is perfect, and even soulmate relationships will experience ups and downs. Still, that bond will be much harder to break. Soulmates have an easier time of accepting, even learning to love, each other’s imperfections. Your relationship is more likely to be a soulmate match if you both love each other exactly as you each are, accepting both the great and awful tendencies we all have.

5. It’s intense. A soulmate relationship may be more intense than normal relationships, in both good and sometimes bad ways. The most important thing is that, even during negative episodes, you’re focused on resolving the problem and can see beyond the bad moment.

6. You two against the world. Soulmates often see their relationship as “us against the world.” They feel so linked together that they’re ready and willing to take on any feat of life, so long as they have their soulmate by their side. Soulmate relationships are founded on compromise and unity above all else.

7. You’re mentally inseparable. Soulmates often have a mental connection similar to twins. They might pick up the phone to call each other at the exact same time. Though life may keep you apart at times, your minds will always be in tune if you are soulmates.

8. You feel secure and protected. Regardless of the gender of your partner, he or she should always make you feel secure and protected. This means that if you’re a man, yes, your woman should make you feel protected, too! Your soulmate will make you feel like you have a guardian angel by your side. A person who plays on your insecurities, whether consciously or subconsciously, is not your soulmate.

9. You can’t imagine your life without him (or her). A soulmate is not someone you can walk away from that easily. It is someone you can’t imagine being without, a person you believe is worth sticking with and fighting for.

10. You look each other in the eye. Soulmates have a tendency to look into each other’s eyes when speaking more often than ordinary couples. It comes naturally from the deep-seated connection between them. Looking a person in the eye when speaking denotes a high level of comfort and confidence.

Whether you’re designed by the universe to be soulmates or two loving people who have settled for each other’s strengths and weaknesses, the decision is yours. The beauty of free will is that you can remain in or change any relationship as you see fit. To be with your soulmate is one of the precious treasures of life. And if you feel you’ve found your heart’s other half, I wish you endless days of joy and laughter, and countless nights of deep embrace, unraveling the mysteries of the universe one by one.

To love,

Dr. Carmen Harra

Day Seventy-Three: How Understanding Past Lives Helps Us Make Sense of Experiences of Today

if-you-want-to-know-what-you-did-in-your-past-life

I walked up to the door of the rickety house from a century past and

grasped the rusted brass door knocker and tapped gently on the 

paint peeled wooden door-once beautiful, now clinging onto life.

A typical looking older woman, dressed in the conservative attire of

an older woman-polyester pants and short, brittle grey hair opened

the door…out wafted the smell of stewed cabbage…The house

was dimly lit as she led me through the top floor and down to

an even duskier basement level. She opened the door to a room

that, in it’s past life had been a home-based beauty salon. The 

shelves were still lined with vintage beauty products from ages

past, covered in a thick film of dust…She said to me with a distinctive

Ukrainian accent: “Oh dear Emily, Jill told me you were coming for

a session today, please have a seat in the chair behind you.”

I boosted myself slightly up so I could comfortably get established

on the squeaky leather salon chair with it’s hairdryer still intact and

hanging loosely behind my head. She asked me how long I had been

wearing my only piece of jewelry-my mom and dad’s understated 

solitary diamond ring-I responded with a few years.She said

that that was long enough to obtain the information she required. 

She asked that I remove it and pass it to her, which I did.

She held the ring in her right palm and closed her eyes as she grasped

my left hand. After some moments her body started to gently jerk. 

She proceeded to tell me that I had lived numerous

lives and that this life was my last earthbound life and that I will

learn all of the lessons I am required to learn before returning to 

the other side to stay. She then described all of the roles that I played in

the delicate play of life: An aboriginal medicine woman, a chef in China,

a child soldier in Africa, a nanny in France, a young Buddhist monk…

All of the passions and deep loves of my life started to become clearer

to me after hearing her offerings. I always had deep connections to these

cultures. For example-my pull to Buddhism when I rediscovered it was 

unfounded and so deep-it felt like I had found a long lost friend…Similarly

when I hear African music I feel like I am home. The half an hour I spent

in that wise woman’s basement transformed my thinking. It was as though

she put all the pieces of my deepest longings and skills together-

allowing me to see that the lives I previously lived continued to resonate today.

I also feel that since that time 20 years ago in her basement the 

experiences I have had in this life have been easier to navigate- and

more purposeful-especially the most challenging and tragic ones-

having been armed with the knowledge that in this last life I have

earthbound I need to learn all that I must as a person in order to

become established on the other side when I am done here.

There are a couple more awesome things that I have enjoyed

contemplating when pondering the idea of past lives and that

is that you can meet up with people in this life again that

you have known from other lives-like past loves and family.

Have you ever met someone and felt such a deep connection to

them that you know you have loved them before?

Another is skills that you are amazing at so quickly that it 

can’t possibly be that you haven’t come into this life already

armed with those innate skills. I could go on and on about the

magic of past lives and the endless possibilities on how believing in

them can enrich your life-but I will spare you an entry that babbles

on too long. Below you’ll find some other perspectives that give

you something to think about.

see if they feel the same?

Day Seventy-Two: I Pick Purple! Trashing Gender Roles by Balancing the Divine Masculine & Feminine Within

images

Just a side-note before I start: Everyday so may titles run through my brain

and I cannot usually purge one so as you can see my titles are epic-ally long!

I was driving home from the city this afternoon and it was finally warm enough

to crank open my windows and let the fresh air in. While driving my sporty little

red Mazda, shifting gears and taking names I turned my radio dial onto a heavy

rock station. I slipped on my rockin’ roll shades and steered the car with one

arm outstretched as I blared Ozzy Osbourne as loud as my car sanctioned stereo

would go without sounding muffled. I was basking in my divine masculine and loving

the power of it. During the trip I pulled over-cracked the hood and poured windsheild

washer fluid-full stream no funnel needed- ready to pounce on any man that tried to

“assist” this feminine looking woman. I felt the power of embracing my inner masculine

energy as I tore all of the seats, flooring and cabinetry out of my 1973 VW Van and

restored it all by myself; and I get that same rush when I sing a Led Zeppelin song with

the guys I jam with.

Women have power and strength-we love to embrace the gritty and raw side of life.

Men have sensitivities and grace and love to soften and embrace the gentle beauty of life.

Our society is becoming more open and receptive to the idea that androgynous thinking-

by that I mean embracing both the masculine and feminine sides of ourselves-will allow

us to achieve more balance and happiness.

The times where little girls were odd if they rocked a short haircut and wore slacks

are improving in Western countries and others as well-though we still have a long

way to go.

Similarly the times where boys were restricted from taking on careers that are

in the nurturing fields is lessening. The more evolved human beings see these

traits as empowering rather than odd and that is progress.

Restrictive thought patterns in general seem to be at least

argued against rather than accepted and conformed to-that too is progress.

If someone chooses to judge anyone that walks outside the lines are they not

the one we should feel sorry for? How terrible would it be to live a life full of

hatred and judgement?

My point is that as human beings we are more balanced when we allow the

gender roles to fall to the wayside and just embrace our ability to just live

and be-be who we chose-wear what we chose-spend our time doing what

we chose whether it is “pink”, “blue” or “purple”.

Day Seventy-One: Navigating Manhood in A Confusing World-Balancing & Awakening the Divine Masculine

tumblr_mkycn9GN811rly3kto1_400

Yesterday we spoke about how women are confused in our society

and about what feminine concepts we can embrace whilst maintaining

our strength and personal power.

After being a teacher, counselor, child care worker and mother for

decades I have learned that boys and men are just as confused about

how much of their masculinity they are allowed to embrace without

looking scary or too hard. They are expected to be sensitive to other

fellow human beings (namely the women in their lives) all the

while maintaining a strong and impenetrable focused manly facade.

Women want their men to be strong and husky but they conversely

want their men to ravage them passionately.

Men are questioned and even ridiculed for assuming typically female

roles (nursing, caregiving, stay at home dad…) so they too are being

marginalized by our society and their dreams-no matter how honorable

can also be put under a microscope.

This causes a wildfire effect of a lack of pursuing their true selves and

embracing the roles they feel they are here to fill.

If a man is unbalanced he can end up being fanatical

and too aggressive-abusive and controlling. What has happened to these

men-to their core-where did things go wrong? Are they too subconsciously

affected by our societies image of what men are supposed to be? Are they

too detached from themselves too find their way back to their true essence?

The way a boy is raised can have so much to do with how much he is able

to express himself. I have put this into practice with my son. I have always

encouraged him to maintain his innate sensitive personality and have never

made him feel shame for showing his emotions.

There is so much beauty in the divine masculine and if men were encouraged

free to explore the best parts of masculinity the world would be a much more

welcome, balanced and harmonious place to live.

Day Seventy: The Goddess Within-Embracing the Divine Feminine and Feminist Values

the world tarot emily balivet

I think in our world today women struggle with what role we are

supposed to playing. We live in a world where we are judged when

we don’t fit snugly into straight vanilla womanly roles-and similarly

we are judged when we don’t break through those roles and grab

life by the balls, competing with men to climb the success ladder.

We are women though and if we are not encouraged to love the

feminine aspects of ourselves as well as the warrior within then

we are doing ourselves a disservice.

The first time I opened a “feminist” book I was in University and

my thirst and curiosity for mind blowing knowledge was insatiable.

I lived in a obscure house that was over one hundred years of age

that had been haphazardly conjoined with a brand new house (not

addition-an entire house). Now I lived in that house with seven very

politically charged, feminist female students that were not about to

define themselves in a traditional role. We also lived with one boy

named Gabino. I started relieving the shelves of the used book stores

that littered the neighborhood of their most feminist novels which

had become the bibles for women trying to break free of their traditional

labels and roles. Here are the books I devoured at that time:

241823 handmaids-tale-cover images url

The women and men that surrounded me at the University of Alberta and the

beautiful individuals I was blessed to live with at that poignant time in my

life opened me up to a new way of thinking about myself as a woman and

what my role in society was.

I have always been a very feminine girl but hid my sexuality from society due

to many violations as a child and as I grew up.

It wasn’t until I met my husband that I felt totally safe and respected as

a sensual woman. I began to dress in a way that made me feel like a beautiful

confident and  sensual woman.

Let’s abolish the definition of what we are supposed to be and

just embrace what makes us feel closest to our source and our

true selves.

Journal Entry: When was a time when you felt balanced as a woman

and human being. What was going on in your life? Who were you surrounding

yourself with? What female role do you play in society at present? Are you

living your truth in that role or do you feel there is a part of yourself that

is being neglected? How can you make a change in a forward direction?

Day Sixty-Nine: “Dream It, Write It, Do It”-Crossing Off Items From Your Bucket List

RkhFRL

Have you ever heard of a bucket list? Well if you have yet to hear of

it you are surely in for a pleasant surprise. A bucket list is a list of

experiences you want to have before you die.

While researching the coining of this term I realized that it came

from the term “kicked the bucket’ (a.k.a.-died, croaked etc.)

There are many restrictions in life that make us feel like crossing

items off this list is unrealistic, but is it?

I would view a bucket list as a necessity for truly living one’s

life. What is the point of going through life never feeling the

rush of an intensely thrilling adventure that we have dreamed

of all our lives. Just Do It! as Nike says. What have you to lose?

You have more to lose if you never try.

Day Sixty-Eight: Transforming Damaging Negative Thoughts into Positive Affirmations

beyourself

Innately I have always been very hard on myself. If someone else treated

me the way I treated have treated myself in the past they would be

shunned and locked up forever never to be seen again. Never in my

wildest dreams did I realize that I was the one keeping me down all

those years. Yes people mistreating me just made me turn on myself

at a deeper level, but I had the power to treat myself with the respect

I deserved. So many years have been sacrificed and if I had only known

about a simple thing called a Positive Affirmation I would have been

rescued from myself.

Louise Hay one of the pioneers of positive affirmations outlined

a way to re-script the way we talk to ourselves within our own minds

in her profound book: I Can Do It! (A free version of the audiobook

is below for your enjoyment and growth)

My sister struggled with her own self talk as much as I did even though

she seemed very tough and impenetrable. She found the book and started

to transform into a more positive and fulfilled soul. She and I read it for 30

days and put the positive affirmations into practice in our own daily lives.

What a powerful, yet seemingly obvious cure for negative and self deprecating

behaviors. I was always deeply kind to others; now it was my time to be just as

kind to myself.

When I am over taxed, stressed and life is kicking my ass, I fall comfortably back

into the pattern of negative self talk-so as I sleep I listen to Louise recite some

very specific and usable positive affirmations for every situation and in the

morning I look in the mirror with love as a pose to disdain.

That is a beautiful thing.

Day Sixty-Seven: “Don’t Give Yourself Away”: The Spiritual Side of Sex & Intimacy

highres_334727812

Depending on what stage of your life you are in; where you are from;

what culture you are immersed in sex is an issue that stares you in the

eyes on a fairly regular basis. So let’s talk openly and frankly without

beating around the bush (excuse the pun).

Whether you are single or married there needs to be a spark to

ignite the flame of intimacy; if there is no spark you may as well

be a robot carrying out the sequence of events programmed in

your mainframe computer.

The singles of the world are faced with the excitement and spark of

a new relationship but have the latent fears that come with not knowing

what the other person likes in the bedroom-until that barrier is crossed

there is no telling if the chemistry that exists will start a fire.

One thing for sure is that the movies give a slightly skewed view of what

a first sexual experience is like for a fresh couple-so ladies and gentleman;

if your first sexual moment with one another is sloppy and confusing don’t

berate yourself too much-it takes a long time to develop a synchronistic

intimate connection with someone.

Yesterday we spoke of the importance of a vibrational match-I feel this

is most important when it comes to sex and intimacy.

Now it’s time to talk about the married couples-intimacy can go a few different

ways when you’ve been together for several years. You can become out of

sync with one another and all of a sudden detach sexually-having lots of headaches,

going months without coping a feel and being “too tired” to make love after the

may responsibilities you have.

If your relationship is sexually void; is there another underlying issue that has

yet to be revealed? People can be asexual (meaning the desire for sex isn’t there),

but we all need to express our sexual selves.

If one partner is not getting what they need from a sexual interlude that

can be a huge problem. Most of the women that have confided in me about

not having sex for years have partners that are selfish in the bedroom-

leaving their wives devoid of pleasure. A one sided ordeal is very

counter-productive-don’t give it away.

I recently watched a comedy act and she talked about how women take longer

to reach orgasm-men can have one fairly quickly for the most part-but for

women it is a complex puzzle that needs to be solved with patience and care.

What about fantasies; if we’re married and we have fantasies about someone else

(famous or otherwise) why do we punish ourselves with overwhelming guilt?

Being with one person for the rest of our lives is lovely and wonderful but

we need to ensure that we maintain our spark for one another-fantasies

can help this.

Sex and intimacy are beautiful and integral to making us feel alive.

Sex can and should be a spiritual experience where both partners are mutually

respected and both partners are taken on a sensual journey into the abyss

of love-flying high on the intensity of loving someone else so completely.

If there are blockages and you are forcing yourself to be intimate for your

partner I think you are doing yourself and your partner a dis-service-one

of these decisions could cause resentment and bitterness and alter the

way you feel about your partner forever.

Never Give Yourself Away! Sex is something to be respected, adored,

revered…It is a sacred and spiritual source that connects us to one another.

One violation can change the course of our sexual future-so treat each other

with respect, honor one another.

Your body is your temple so make sure that if anyone wants to

come inside they need to clean their feet and worship you.

Morning Meditation:

highres_190217832

Journal Entry: Examine how healthy your sexual life is. Are you blocked?

Are you fulfilled and honest with your partner? Does your vibrational

resonance match? Are there things you are not communicating to your

partner that you feel would help you and your partner improve in any

area of your sexual life? Write a letter to your partner about this and

give or don’t give it to them. If you are single-examine what you need

from a partner and what your comfort level is when it comes to sex.

Day Sixty-Six: Vibrational Resonance-Surrounding Yourself with Complimentary People & Environments

5ae0e9605a7ceb311c692c1a00c6584f

Last night I was invited to a potluck dinner by a friend who has stuck by

me through thick and thin since high school. She was asked to bring a

friend who inspires her-it was exactly what I needed-to feel as though

I had value-what an uplifting invitation. It was at the home of another

friend from high school who is one of the most positive people I know

and offers so much to building positive communities in my city.

I spotted the house from a block away-the small circular patio lanterns

whispering my name in the night…The closer I got to the house the more

I could feel the vibrational pull-one of pure unadulterated loving energy.

Just as our feet landed on the front step we heard a sea of clapping and

cheering and the spiritual vibration was raised to the next level…

We walked into the house and were greeted with smiles and openness-

the floor was covered with people, in each others embrace, side by side,

all at different levels and not one of the faces in the crowd was devoid

of a genuine and heartfelt smile…Each person that brought a ‘plus one’

was introducing their plus one to the rest of the community. The 

introductions were so intense, pure, honest and heartfelt-poignant

celebrations of what the core of the people being presented really

were about and how they enhanced our world just by their presence

and offerings. I felt like I was home-surrounded by like-minded souls

ignighted by their passions…looking for meaning in every facet of their

lives. The pretenses were stripped away as each individual approached

the house. The vibrational energy inviting them to let go the masks and shine

through. I so appreciated every conversation; every interaction that I 

was gifted with last night-I had begun to believe I would never truly find

a community that complimented my energy-but there it was; there it is.

The door to my kindred community has finally opened and I have so much

hope for the future…

Day Sixty-Five: How to Stay Humble Without Compromising Your Self Worth

621e9da88bee010512412d4fb1a4c2f1tumblr_lyrbwqqnkk1ro6ydpo1_r2_1280

My mother was a fan of humility. She was very religious and in her spiritual

teachings and in life she was trained to be seen and not heard. Lessons

she stressed to me were centered on giving to others and making them

feel special while sacrificing your own needs.

Innately I have always been very uncomfortable when I am complimented.

It is as though my biggest fear is to seem egotistical or appearing to think

I am better than anyone else. My husband recently shared with me that

I actually downgrade myself in front of others too often. This is a tool I

have always used to be accessible to others so that they know I will not

judge them.

The world has confused me; and maybe yourself as well-Buddhist teaching

and all of my spiritual teachings stress the value of maintaining ones ability

to remain humble and how this trait is revered and encouraged.

Admit it we all can’t stand the people who go around bragging about this

and that and how awesome they are. It also drives us crazy when people

around us keep one upping us-like you buy something and then they buy

the same thing but way nicer and more expensive; or multiple numbers

of the one that you got and then proceed to rub salt into your wounds.

Now the key to being a good person, someone who people can value;

is maintaining our value and appreciating compliments, but in a

way that is not aggressive or egotistical. Self deprecation is an extreme

form of humility-and it damages us. You can be humble, kind and loving

and still value your self worth.  How can we do this? By assessing the

way we speak to others about ourselves.

Homework: Do something kind for someone today without them knowing.

Pay attention to how not receiving acknowledgement feels?

Journal Entry: When you are with someone do you feel like you need

to compete or prove something to them? How much of your time are 

you living in an egotistical state? How much of your time are you living

in a humble state? How did you feel after doing your homework?
