“Friendship with oneself is all important, because, without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the World. “
– Eleanor Roosevelt
A new and healthy relationship begins with you. Many associate relationship with someone outside of themselves. Fairy Tales teach that life is about finding “Our Knight In Shining Armor”; only then can we live happily ever after. The other side of this is “we have to kiss a lot of toads before finding our knight”.
“We have to kiss a lot of toads before finding our knight”
Our last blog mentioned that each relationship is a part of you, each relationship teaches you something about yourself, and each relationship draws you closer to true happiness. Peace is found within, not without; know yourself at all levels.
You are the sum of all of your parts – your younger child, your rebellious teenager, and your adventurous adult. You are your own soul mate.

True love is an energetic connection. It is as familiar to us as we are to ourselves. It is an ingrained soul vibration, not an appearance, or a date night, or even a political party affiliation, recognized by two people at all levels of there being. When true love arrives, this soul vibration hits you in the gut and brings forth a revelation of déjà vu. It is as though this true love soul vibration taps you on the shoulder and whispers in your ear, “I’ve known this person before”.
In today’s world we have an app for everything. We use our mobile devices to locate people, places and objects, anything that grabs our attention. We use social networks to track our friend’s likes, dislikes, comings and goings, and to post “selfies” of our own external reality. Social networks are often our hunting ground where we try to fit pieces of our puzzle together in hopes of finding one true love. But true love is not always easy to find. It is often times necessary to disconnect from the World and connect with our own inner self in order for our Twin Flame, that mirror image of self, to arrive.
