This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Darla, who asks The Council about soul mates and soul families. Also Darla was told by a psychic that her mother in this lifetime was her mother-in-law in another lifetime, and her husband was her daughter in another lifetime, and she asks for any information about this.
The Council says they love questions about soul mates. So many humans are searching for their soul mate, but what they want us to know is that we have many soul mates. In some lives a soul mate can be a good friend, or a strong teacher, or your child. A soul mate isn’t necessarily just the romantic partner that many people are looking for. In a certain respect we are all soul mates to each other.
The Council says we have soul groups or soul families. People you find you’re at ease with are usually someone you’ve traveled with before and are in your soul group. Some groups are small, about 9 or 10 souls, and some groups are larger, containing perhaps 100 souls. We constantly travel with these groups, and yet we have the ability to change groups a lifetime at a time.
The Council does see that Darla’s mother was her mother-in-law at a time when they lived on a farm as America Indians. And her husband in this life was her daughter in a life where her daughter was an opera singer in Italy. The Council asks Darla if her husband has singing ability or is interested in music in this lifetime.
Listen to our short, but information-filled, 5-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance on soul mates and soul groups, and let us know what you think.
This post answers several questions from a reader named Sarah who’s 23 years old and relatively new to thinking about her spirituality. She begins her questions by asking The Council for some general clarity on the nature of things and her path to intimate love.
Sarah explains how her deeper appreciation for self-love and love in general has caused her to question the meaning of twin flames and soul mates, and whether she can create them in her life. And she describes a very close male friend who seems meant to be something important to her, but she doesn’t feel that drawn to him as a boyfriend.
Sarah asks if this young man is her twin flame or soul mate because she wants to know if she should try and create these in her life, or sit back because he’s the one. She asks how much of her situation is pre-determined spiritually and how much she controls as a human being?
The Council’s Answers
The Council starts by commenting it’s wonderful Sarah understands the importance of loving and appreciating herself rather than projecting her love onto someone else so she can feel it.
The Council addresses the question of twin flames, sometimes referred to as twin souls. After a little background which you can hear in the recording below, The Council asks if we realize we’re all the same soul, all connected, and part of the One. And they ask if that doesn’t make us all twin souls?
The Council says many people are looking for their soul mate because they believe it will be the perfect relationship, but they don’t seem to agree. They say soul mates don’t just come along in a love relationship or partnership. They can be cousins, friends, acquaintances, and they usually push you to grow and force you to a higher level of understanding, whether it’s through positive experiences or negative ones.
In response to Sarah’s question about whether she’s able to create a twin flame or soul mates in her life, The Council says she can create either or both. The Council is firm that you as a spiritual being are in charge of your life experience.
There’s some interesting discussion about the ways your spirit pre-plans what happens in your physical reality.
With regard to Sarah’s male friend, The Council advises appreciating the connection they share, and know she doesn’t have to feel drawn to him romantically. He’s in her life for whatever experiences, fun, and challenges they go through together. But as far as a love relationship is concerned, she is able to create something else if she wants.
In response to her question about whether he is a twin flame or soul mate, The Council says because they’ve shared many lifetimes together, yes he can be a twin soul and yes he can be a soul mate. But they add that we are all those things to each other.
