soul mates: the reoccurring and enduring characters in our Lives. Soul mate energy is not confined to one single person, or directly correlated to romantic Love. although soul mates manifest within different bodies and personalities, there is an underlying nurturance and acceptance that will create a sense of unity and familiarity with each soul mate you meet. soul mates often find each other at critical points in their Life's Purpose when the lessons they need to learn are complimentary, and the entanglement of the two souls is beneficial to both. Soul mates have locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with these other people we are safe in our own paradise. Our soul mates are the ones who share our deepest longings, our sense of direction. Our soul mates are the ones who makes Life come to Life.
kindred spirits : these people are equally important to our souls development. while soul mates bring lessons through a mutual understanding of the world, kindred spirits act as mirrors for every aspect of Life, especially the difficult or unintegrated parts of ourselves. These are the people we struggle to understand but yearn to show compassion towards. These are the people we briefly align with but can't seem to sustain the flame. These are the strangers we enjoy the body heat from on buses, and the ones who will randomly smile while passing by, and the teachers who imbue us with wisdom that we feel too shy to build a relationship with. Kindred spirits can makes us feel excited or unsettled or angry. To truly learn a lesson from these interactions, we must be willing to face what we see in them as a projection and reflection of ourselves and either heal, or accept these parts. Once we see the emotional reaction to kindred spirits in their true Light, they may even hold potential to become soul mates.
playmates: similar to a soul mate, a playmate is one who is placed in your Life to expand, enlighten and encourage you. Although soul mates bring messages through prolonged mutual experiences which cause both parties to gradually unfold, playmates may cause transformation during short bursts of Light Hearted interaction. These instances still causes intense blossoming by softening the Heart before delivering the next shift. playmates never demand attention yet always make the most whenever a playdate can occur. curious, creative, and playful, almost any place can be transformed into a playmates playground. no matter how long playmates have been separate, when they return to each others presence, the wild rumpus easily picks up where it left off. a playmate is highly attuned to all sensory stimulation and much time is spent exploring touch/feelings (both internal sharing of emotions and external sharing of hugs and snuggles) sound (deep and intuitive conversation) taste (shared food and drink) smell (the scent of a sweater nuzzled into, the lingering smells of campfires) and sight (appreciating everything in their surroundings as an integral part of the Whole)
soul family: the entirety of every soul mate, kindred spirit, and play mate you meet and re-meet through out your Lifetimes. Connecting with soul family mean recovering the fullness of ourselves. While outdated and misunderstood modes of Love try to narrow its focus, by embracing all members of ones soul family one is capable of expanding their Heart enough to encompass and accept the True terms of Unconditional Love.
Twin Flame: a rare occurrence in which one single entity embodies the traits of a soul mate, kindred spirit, and playmate. many people will not meet their twin flame within their Life time, yet after many Lives spent actively engaging with your soul family, it will be possible to do so. Not finding your twin flame does not diminish your ability to Love or to feel Love from them. Since twin flames do not often incarnate at the same time, they act as a guidance and inspiration to us from a higher realm. Meeting your twin flame is characterized by unrelenting feelings of serenity, belonging and remembrance. Even though you have not technically met before, once you are together there will be a lasting sense of connection not only with each other but with the entirety of existence. Twin Flames come together when both souls are prepared to experience the Truth of Unconditional Love and the Singularity of human existence.
