Quote: The Centre of Your Soul

 

the_known_universe-wallpaper-1280x768Sharing a wonderful quote of Saint Teresa of Avila from the book “The Interior Castle”, translated by Mirabai Starr. Originally posted by Monika in her great post: The Private Self at symbolreader.

“There is a secret place. A radiant sanctuary. As real as your own kitchen. More real than that. Constructed of the purest elements. Overflowing with the ten thousand beautiful things. Worlds within worlds. Forests, rivers. Velvet coverlets thrown over featherbeds, fountains bubbling beneath a canopy of stars. Bountiful forests, universal libraries. A wine cellar offering an intoxication so sweet you will never be sober again. A clarity so complete you will never again forget.

This magnificent refuge is inside you. Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway…

No one else controls access to this perfect place. Give yourself your own unconditional permission to go there. … Believe the incredible truth that the Beloved has chosen for his dwelling place the core of your own being because that is the single most beautiful place in all of creation. Waste no time. Enter the centre of your soul.”

– Saint Teresa of Avila, “The Interior Castle”, translated by Mirabai Starr

Myths About Soulmate Relationships

This article written by Elena Krasnova

Myth #1: “There is only ONE soulmate for each of us out there”. It’s important to understand that your soul is compatible with more than one other soul on this planet. Essentially, your soul is part of an energy pool that is shared among many other beings, all of whom could easily resonate well with you and be able to form a soulmate relationship. So, there isn’t just one person out there that is a perfect match for you in terms of a love relationship. That would be like saying that you can only have one good friend in your entire lifetime, which is simply not true. Sure, you can have some friends with whom you have more of a connection than others, but, chances are, you’re going to have more than one good friend in your life.

Myth #2: “Soulmate relationships last forever.” Having met your soulmate doesn’t necessarily mean that the relationship will last until both of your physical deaths. Some soulmate relationships don’t work out, but that doesn’t mean that those relationships were wrong or useless. Certain people must enter our lives at certain points to teach us valuable lessons and contribute to our soul’s growth in some way. But they don’t necessarily have to stay in our lives forever (although, of course, some do and that’s because they continue to contribute to our soul’s growth rather than to its detriment).

Myth #3: “Only lucky people get to be in soulmate relationships.” Forming and maintaining soulmate relationships has nothing to do with luck! Every soulmate relationship is a carefully chosen connection of your energy (essence) to another person’s energy (essence). Calling this “luck” is almost an insult to the soul, as it gives us a loophole, an excuse as to why we can’t have a soulmate relationship. It’s a justification based on our past and/or present situation and/or what the majority says.

The fact is that finding a soulmate relationship is very much in your hands. It is up to you to get your “logical” mind out of the way and attract your soulmate. The main reason that people don’t attract their soulmates is that they have certain mental blocks that don’t allow them to engage in a soulmate relationship (because of a traumatic past, for example). Click here to learn more about how your own mind can sabotage you.

Myth #4: “Soulmate relationships only happen to the chosen few”. As we said in debunking Myth #1, your soul is part of an energy pool that is shared among many other beings, all of whom could easily resonate well with you and be able to form a soulmate relationship. That means that every single person on earth can have thousands of soulmates! You can literally have your pick of soulmates right now! It is only a matter of finding them and putting in a little effort to maintain the relationship you form, which is what The Soulmate Guide is all about.

Myth #5: “Soulmate relationships are hard to find”. This one is kind of like a self-fulfilling prophecy. What that means is that when you hear, say, and emphasize something enough, you believe it, and the outcome turns out just like you believed. In other words, if you think, believe, or say something is hard, your subconscious mind will make you perceive it as hard. This is not only true about soulmate relationships, but just about everything in life. In the case of soulmates, if you believe they are hard to find, your mind will literally make you blind to all the potential soulmates that are out there for you. You will most likely not even see them! So, realizing that out of the thousands of soulmates you are compatible with, meeting at least a couple is quite likely, is a great first step toward attracting your soulmate.

Quotes About Soulmate Lovers

Have you ever met someone for the first time, but in your heart you feel as if you’ve met them before? – JoAnne Kenrick

Instructions are never included. They vary with the strength of your ability to see, the measure of your selective blindness, the limits of your mercy, and the intensity of your desire. – Vera Nazarian

For some people, “the point of no return” begins at the very moment their souls become aware of each others’ existence. – C. JoyBell C.

We were not making love, we did not even kiss, but the inexplicable intimacy we shared left us wordlessly and hopelessly locked into each other’s gaze. – Jasmine Dubroff

I believe in the immeasurable power of love, that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance. – Steve Maraboli

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. –  Dr. Seuss

It is completely possible to have conscious connection through the heart (beyond the experience of the body) with your Twin Flame. This can be experienced in meditation or simply in quiet times of repose. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

The true Twin Flame experience is accessed from within you in still moments through divine feeling, through meditation, through a deep opening of the heart. This sometimes takes the form of ecstatic waves or pulsations of energy moving through the body. Or, you may have the distinct feeling of another being in your energy field or a sense of conversations that may come in word-thoughts or simply through silent unspoken understanding. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

Coming together in relationship on Earth that is a reflection of one’s Twin Flame, the true Twin Flame from the Moment of Creation, has nothing to do with gender in the body on Earth. The important thing is that in every relationship reflecting a Twin Flame connection, one half is carrying the Divine Masculine and one half is carrying the Divine Feminine. This refers not to gender, but to the grand forces of Creation. These people may both be in female bodies, or both be in male bodies. – Yael & Doug Powell /Circle of Light

As you radiate soul love you may feel a shift in yourself. Some of you will feel this shift as an “aha,” a release, or a feeling of greater love. You may feel a physical sensation of some sort, such as a lessening of tension somewhere in your body. You may discern a change in your attitude. All of these are indications that your heart centers are awakening. – Soul Love / Sanaya Roman

A soul mate is not found. A soul mate is recognized. – Vironika Tugaleva

Before you find your soul mate, you must first discover your soul. – Charles F. Glassman

A soulmate 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. – Richard Bach

We recognize a soulmate by the supreme level of comfort and security we feel with that person. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t issues that remain to be ironed out. Rather, it means we know intuitively that we can resolve issues with our soul mate without losing his or her love and respect. – Linda Brady

A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves. – Edgar Cayce

I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out. – Roy Croft

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. – Elizabeth Gilbert

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. – Bruce Lee

A soulmate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. – Thomas Moore

The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind I was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along. – Rumi
