By now you have probably gathered that I was a bit sceptical when I first heard that Seth was my soul mate. It seemed so insane. After all, he’s an American from New York. That’s about as far from Cape Town as you can get. What were the odds that we would meet? Probably nil. Except for one important thing: the promises we made to each other and our friends before we were born.
Yes, I know. That sounds as weird as a cat with three tails. Especially seeing as we have zero memory of ever making those promises. Unfair, you cry. I agree. But that’s what happened.
Seth and I knew each other before we were born. Or rather our spirits did, and I don’t mean in a reincarnation way. That was not our experience. We – and the spirits of a lot of other people we have since meet in mortality – lived for a very long time before this world was even created. Where, you ask. Right here, in our universe. It was there that Seth and I first fell in love.
The Heavens brought us together forever
I will love you forever, in this life, and in the next
How do we know this? Simple. We were shown a vision of a weird, ethereal sort of place known only as The Mists of Time. It was there that we had the big reveal that we’d agreed to come to Earth at the same time. And, drum roll, we found out that we’d promised to find each other once here. To say we were surprised was an understatement. Seth is still recovering….
And if that wasn’t already shock enough, we also promised to help our friends be with the ones they love. It was that promise to help others which led to us finding each other. After all, true love, I’ve learned in my short life, is not about what I can get for myself, but rather what I can do for some one else. Profound, huh!
But that’s why I will sacrifice my all to win Seth back…
Finally, because tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day, I want to share a few of my favourite love quotes with you… Enjoy!
Immature love says, I love you because I need you. Mature love says, I need you because I love you.
You know it's love when you can't fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams.
Dr. Seuss (One of my favourite writers of all time....)
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
A soul mate is someone who has 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 that one person we're safe in our own paradise. Our soul mate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we're two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we've found the right person. Our soul mate is the one who makes life come to life.
Have a fantastic Valentine's Day...
I’ve asked Seth to write something on our blog, but he didn’t look too keen. I promise I’ll keep working on him.
