The real secret to a happy life—indeed, to creating your best life—lies in who you share it with.
Indeed, as musician Carlos Santana said, “Everything tastes better when you share it with your soulmate.”
I know this from personal experience, because even though I had an amazing life, wonderful friends and a very successful career, at 43 I found myself still single and less fulfilled than I wanted to be.
That’s when I decided to see if all the manifestation tools and techniques I had successfully used in my business would work in my love life. And shortly thereafter I met and married my soul mate, Brian.
Meeting and being loved by my soul mate is an experience that transformed my life so profoundly, I eventually made it my mission to help others do the same.
I am compelled to help people recognize soul mate love as an absolutely essential ingredient to living a juicy and delicious life.
So what’s so good about having a soul mate?
Soul mate couples have a secret they rarely speak about: they feel fortunate to no longer have to search for true love because they are living it every day. They realize how blessed they are to be spending their days in the embrace of their best friend, lover and sacred partner.
Rather than brag, or shout it from the rooftops, they quietly relish their relationship and give thanks, from a deep place of gratitude, that they have another day to spend together.
Now that’s not to say if you’re not with your soul mate that you can’t have all the makings of a great life—a fulfilling career, a beautiful home, exciting adventures and so on. In fact, you can have all those things and more.
The point is the satisfaction you get from your greatest life experiences will deepen ten-fold with your soul mate by your side.
Soul mate relationships are intense, loving communions that have an almost divine quality to them. The soul mate couples I’ve met choose to live with honesty, transparency, deeper love, devotion, openness, vulnerability and trust.
My husband, Brian Hilliard, explains it this way, “In a soul mate relationship one plus one does not equal two, it equals 11. The love generated in this equation is a gift to the soul mate couple and to the world at large.”
But you don’t have to take our word for it. We’ve asked other soul mate couples we know what life is like for them.
- “There is a total and utter richness that exists in being with one’s soul mate. It is utopia.” –Carla Picardi, author of The World According To You!
- “I am experiencing a ‘full contentment’ I have never known. A relationship such as this does not happen TO someone, it happens WITH someone who is truly willing to cross the terror barrier of self-disclosure again and again to find that place of true connection.” –Mary Morrissey, author of Building Your Field of Dreams
- “Being a soul mate couple is a divine dance of both witnessing and also being witnessed, celebrating and also being celebrated. It’s that deep spiritual connection, unwavering acceptance and knowing that someone is always there to cover your back and will be with you no matter how bad a day you’re having.” –Jay Vogt and Stephanie Bennett Vogt, author of Your Spacious Self: Clear Your Clutter and Discover Who You Are
Are soul mate relationships always blissful? No, of course not. Like all relationships, soul mate unions require time, energy, and attention.
As Otto and Susie Collins so eloquently put it, “They require conscious effort to keep the relationship vibrant, alive and juicy.”
Despite the occasional upset, argument or breakdown, soul mates are committed to working through the issues with honesty and transparency, knowing that the foundation for their love is strong enough to weather the storm.
This is why the world needs soul mate couples to find each other—as many as possible, and as soon as possible. It is a surefire way to fill our planet with more happiness and love.
And it’s an ingredient that cannot be left out of your recipe for a delicious dream life.
