I meant to blog about this a few days ago but it was a busy weekend for me. And it is not because of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, I didn’t watch it but saw the blow-by-blow account of each round on one website complete with pictures. I just listened to the radio while the fight was going on.  Funny how a few minutes after the fight, everyone was an instant critic. My news feed on FB was full of it. There were instant memes calling the former “the running man” and “best man in hugging”.  They called it the fight of the century but many were disappointed about its outcome and since I know  next to nothing about boxing except for occasional late telecasts of Pacquiao’s  previous fights, let’s leave the analyzing to the experts and the conjectures to those unsatisfied boxing fans who felt that it was not really the fight of the century after all.

There are people I’ve yet to meet who are waiting for my path to intersect with theirs, so they can complete their own journeys.

Put that way, I am looking forward to meet those people who will complete my journey too. How lovely it would be if in the near future, you would meet more people who would make the remaining days of your life something that you would cherish and remember with fondness. They might be future friends you’ve to meet yet,  family members that you haven’t seen for decades, or strangers who  would put a smile on your face  and make you realize your self-worth, that you are quite lovable after all  and you are worthy of being a friend.

Some years ago, (back in the mid 90’s, I think) a close friend who is a nun suggested that I read James Redfield’s Celestine Prophecy. It’s a new age philosophy about how to make connections of events happening in your life.  One of my priest friends even asked me why I have those books in my shelf. He also saw some titles like Embraced By The Light and Soulmates, Karma and Reincarnation. Those were the days when I was fascinated by those subjects. Going back to Redfield’s book, I remembered what he said that everything happens for a reason.  He said and I quote:

“I don’t think that anything happens by coincidence… No one is here by accident… Everyone who crosses our path has a message for us. Otherwise they would have taken another path, or left earlier or later. The fact that these people are here means that they are here for some reason”…”  

It may not mean the same thing as what Richard Paul Evans shared but I get the gist of what both authors were trying to say. What if I didn’t have this blog then I would not have met all these wonderful people whom I interact with everyday through their writings.

What’s your take on this? I’d love to hear from you.

Whether it’s a love relationship or just a platonic friendship, some connections are deeper than others.  You feel like they have been there forever.  Sometimes, it feels as if you’ve known one another your entire lives.  Our perception of soul mates are mostly based on movies, televisions and books but the metaphysical definition of a soul mate is someone you knew in your past life and it has been found through research that it is mostly karmic.  They are predestined by your soul but not your personality before you were even born.  We have many soul mates but our personalities and emotional baggage sometimes interfere with our relationships.  Not all soul mates are meant to be long-term or harmonious.

And here’s what Jaime Licauco, a foremost authority on mind development, paranormal activities and mysticism has to say in his book, Soulmates, Karma and Reincarnation:

Soul mates need not be of the opposite sex.  There is a very strong telepathic rapport between soul mates such that one will know what the other is thinking of or planning to do before he/she does it. One will know if the other needs him or is calling him by merely tuning in on her  with his mental apparatus.  In most cases, the rapport will be so perfect that they themselves would be surprised at the seeming power or knowledge one has about the other.

What is important to keep in mind in a soul mate encounter  is that external circumstances, such as social status, religious or political differences and social conventions do not and will not matter at all.  Two souls meet when it is time for them to meet.  In a soul mate encounter, there are hardly any “ifs”  or “buts” although the lower intellect or reason may struggle against it.

There is also something to be said about the exchange of energies between two soul mates.  When they meet, the atmosphere becomes magnetically charged.  The two auras merge, forming a whole.

The physical attraction between soul mates is very strong, but it is not a predominant or primary consideration.  It is a means towards the higher goals of spiritual unity, never an end to itself.

A soul mate relationship may even be traumatic at times.  There may have been unresolved conflicts in the past that may be brought into the present lifetime’s encounter.  The partners need to resolve these conflicts to progress together spiritually.  But despite these conflicts, soul mates fully realize the true nature of their involvement with each other and can usually weather the storm.


There is even a topic on how to meet your soul mate, how to recognize your soul mate etc. But one thing important that I  learned in this book is this” a soul mate leads you to God and to your spiritual destiny”.
