Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other… These meetings are waiting for us…
Today’s SNAPPY INSIGHT is a quote from Maria's diary in “Eleven Minutes”—a wonderful novel by the magnificent author Paulo Coelho.
The profound power of meeting soulmates is something that I have personally experienced and found life-changing. Indeed, it was meeting one of my closest soulmates* a few years ago, along with my intuitive insights into the events leading up to our first meeting in the flesh, that finally catapulted me onto the path of the work I am doing now with Life & Soul Insights.
A caveat here: I don’t believe that our souls always plan to meet soulmates with romantic potential in every lifetime on Earth—as soulmates we choose and plan which roles to play out with each other in each lifetime. But I do believe that if you personally have a deep desire to meet a soulmate—a deep knowingness that a soulmate union is part of your life’s plan—this is because it was part of your soul’s plan before you incarnated.
I always had that deep desire to meet a soulmate—and a belief that I would be in a partnership with a soulmate for the rest of my life. But, while the how and when we meet our soulmates will usually happen more or less as planned—as the Universe conspires that it is so—what we then do with the experience is to some extent down to our free will. (I touched on this in my personal story “Practising the Art of Letting Go”.)
In “Eleven Minutes” Paulo Coehlo says, “Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other. Generally speaking, these meetings occur when we reach a limit, when we need to die and be reborn emotionally. These meetings are waiting for us, but more often than not, we avoid them happening. If we are desperate, though, if we have nothing to lose, or if we are full of enthusiasm for life, then the unknown reveals itself, and our universe changes direction.”
Postscript: *I now know that this soulmate is in fact my Twin Flame—a concept that I wasn't even aware of until a couple of years after we met. When we first met we were deluged with signs and profound experiences—'whistles and bells'—to show us that our meeting was significant, and that we were hugely important to each other. These included a telepathic communication initiated by my twin which confirmed her soul's recognition of me. With a mixture of astonishment and relief she declared: "It's you… You're here… I can't believe you're here!" And my soul responded telepathically, confirming that it was me, and that I was indeed there for her… (And I still am.)
Have you experienced a significant meeting with another soul whom you recognised instantly, even though you hadn't met the person before?
Or do you have a sense that an important soul meeting is going to happen?
