Note: This post was initially the bottom section of the previous post, “Misrepresentation of Twin Flames: A Blessing in Disguise.” Though it can be read on its own, I trust that it’s MUCH more beneficial after reading the previous one in order to have an expanded understanding of True Love/Unconditional Love/Twin Flame (Twin Soul/God)/Ultimately….Holy Spirit/Source/Prime Creator/Divine Ancient Mother Goddess
Before I even left the Army life in 2011, and focused on my spiritual path as a mystic, I often felt that my husband of now 13 years isn’t a perfect match for me.
And by perfect, I don’t mean being perfect in every earthly label way—outer appearance, intelligence, status, position, financial background, educational background, etc.—but in a spiritual way (a deeper connection).
When I first crossed paths with him on an online dating site, I brushed off signs from my intuition due to wanting to find a good partner. I had been divorced for a few years, and desired to start dating. Like many relationships throughout human history, we were both yearning to find true love outside of ourselves before finding it within us (but we didn’t know at the time).
However, when I dig deeper, I realize that my husband is indeed mirroring all that I am at each moment that I’m with him while in this relationship, whether negative or positive. And I’m grateful for his PITA (pain-in-the-ass) aspects that help me to grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, because they help me to embrace these once suppressed, ignored, denied, and/or rejected aspects within me. I also deeply appreciate all of his lovable and loving qualities.
Our Earth schoolhouse for souls is overflowing with contrast/duality (opposites that are perceived as separate, like fear energy and compassion energy, though they are both within the Love Frequency spectrum)/polarity (seemingly opposites that are interconnected within the One, like the colors red through violet within white, or hot and cold with warm in the middle).
Because if everyone and their mamas and grandmamas were super loving all the time, then not only would things get weird and boring real quick, but true/unconditional love would eventually lose its profound meaning. In addition, it’s way too easy to like the likable, and love the lovable. The true challenge is Unconditional Love.
So whether my husband is one of my soulmates within a Soul Group/Soul Family/Monad (preparing me for the ultimate Twin Flame sacred reunion), or he’s actually my Twin Flame/Twin Soul who hasn’t awakened yet (due to self not being fully awakened yet), is yet to be known (personally experienced/experiential knowledge/wisdom).

Recently, I paid more attention to whatever bothers me at times within all that I’m surrounded with, whether it’s people, places, things, my pet cat, etc.
For instance, my semi-feral, black, stray cat turned pet—who ranges from being super lovable and gentle to very cranky and sometimes aggressive (when wiping her paws)—taught me to embrace these extreme aspects within me (and everything in-between). I, too, can be a soft, purring kitten, or a fierce tigress, lioness, black panther, etc. (and everything in-between), and that’s perfectly okay.
The cat spirit guide also reminds me that the physical and spiritual worlds are not separate, but the same, wisdom I learned from the website, Shamanic Journey. I also enjoy reading about animal spirit guides/totems in the website Universe of Symbolism. Note: As usual, only extracting from a reading what highly resonates with me, and disregarding whatever doesn’t
Since my husband is the person I spend the most time with, I noticed that he is my greatest challenge at times. However, with some of my neighbors whom I interact with less often, it’s becoming a little easier to do.
For instance, I eventually became tired of hearing one of my elderly neighbors rant about corruption within politics and government (especially Trump) whenever I ran into him.
However, upon close examination, I realized that the “ranting’ aspect of him that irritated me exists within me as well.
I have ranted within a few posts about the corruption within politics and government (to include now President Trump). Examples: Post, “To So-Called Leaders of This World: A Delicious Taste of Your Own Medicine” and blog page, “Examples of Constant Reminders from So-Called Leaders of our World”
I’ve also vented about various things in life, like every human does. Granted, a moderate amount of venting is healthy, whereas straight up, habitual ranting can make a soul completely lost within the dark valley, and can make others miserable as well.
I embrace these ranting and venting aspects of self (without going overboard), because from a human perspective, it can be very frustrating and discouraging to hear about corruption in this world.
So my neighbor—whom I created a card for a while back when he was in the hospital, to remind him of his peaceful side (in post, “‘Get Well Friend…We Miss You’ Big Card“)—was merely mirroring back to me (repeatedly) an aspect of self that I had not embraced yet.
Reminder: Whatever life lessons repeat in our lives are like a blinking neon sign that shouts, “HEY! Look over here! SEE beyond the outer surface!” And I trust that once we extract the wisdom, then the same life lesson won’t show up again (unless we need a swift kick in the ass/reminder)
There are other example stories, and related insights, in a draft post that I haven’t completed yet, titled, “Liberation of the Polar Bear Spirit Within,” which stems from the second vivid dream I had of a polar bear on 6/16/17 (F); the first one was recorded in post, “Liberating the Fenced-in Polar Bear Within Me” (3 years ago). I will publish the draft in Divine perfect timing and order.
I trust that Being Full-Potential/Multidimensional Self, not only includes simply Being and doing our best at every moment as a human being—and not how society measures what best is—but allowing ourselves to experience true and full freedom, which includes inner-peace, joy, truth, wisdom, various forms of abundance, great health, prosperity (every stepping stone of success since there are ultimately no “mistakes” or “failures”), and last but not least…unconditional, pure love.
When we watch a crawling baby, we don’t shout, “Stop being a lazyass! You should be running by now!” In the same way, we don’t perceive a seeding as imperfect, and not being its full-potential self, in its current stage of growth.
Therefore, it benefits us to remember that our own human, soul growth and soul evolution—which is probably in its infant, toddler, tween or teenage stage from Spirit’s point of view—is Divinely perfect at every moment, despite outer appearances.
I recently shared an extended version of the above two paragraphs with another elderly neighbor turned friend.
She mentioned something to the effect that she was going to work harder on being more perfect since that’s what God wants her to be (she’s a Jehovah’s Witness). I replied something like, “Doesn’t the bible say that God sees his creation as His children?” When she agreed, I asked her how do we adults perceive the growth process of babies and seedlings.
Sallie’s a very thoughtful, genuinely kind, courageous, strong, intelligent, clever, highly imaginative, wise, and funny lady who’s been through some tough times.
A while back, I sent her a personalized gift (to surprise her) that I had initially created for my son a while back to uplift him (shared in post, “‘Light Emerging from Darkness’ Poem/Card“). When she told me with a big smile on her face that she loved it, and that she even read the back of the card (that mentions her) five times, it made me happy.
In addition, Sallie is the deeply compassionate lady mentioned in post, “Stories of a Black Stray Cat Named Shadow” under subtitle, “A Surprise Visit from an Elderly Neighbor the Night Before Halloween” (that’s still in draft form). She helped speed up the process of my husband and I adopting our once stray cat from our neighborhood.
Just by sharing this story, and others, I’m reminded once again that perhaps we are currently living on multi-faceted/multi-colored Heaven on Earth. Note: Also see related Gospel of Thomas 1:13 Jesus quote in poem/card within post, “Celebrating Your Birth to Heaven on Earth – Poem/Card“; I’m not religious, but I love wise teachings regardless of what category they come from.
Perhaps Heaven isn’t all about shiny objects, fluffy white clouds, cute little angels, Caucasian Jesus with blue eyes in a white robe, a judgmental, bearded old fart called god, and a very long-ass Last Supper-like table (only for the so-called “good” Christians or other religion folks who believe they are better, more righteous, and more superior than others).
If there was such a mega dinner table in a place called heaven, and I happened to be invited, but my so-called enemy (or enemies) from Earth could only watch nearby while all the “good” souls got to feast, I have no doubt that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy myself. I just wouldn’t eat; or, I’d have to share the food with them.
By imagining the above sad scenario of judgment and discrimination, I was able to further understand why Jesus (and other Ascended Masters throughout the world) taught about compassion and unconditional forgiveness—vs conditional forgiveness that stems from the fearful ego self wanting to: 1) receive an apology or request for forgiveness, 2) convince itself (with only its mind and not heart) that it’s a good person, 3) be perceived as a good person by others 4) be approved and loved by the bible god 5) go to a place called heaven and/or 6) avoid going to a place called hell.
I trust that this overly patriarchal, fear-based belief of a judgmental god only allowing “good” souls to experience “heaven” is false. I trust that all souls, when reunited in the spiritual realm (perhaps at the so-called “end”), will rejoice together for doing a great job as The One Team because the earthly duality labels of good vs bad, right vs wrong, fear vs love, etc. will no longer apply.
I trust that everyone played the “good” and “bad” guy/gal—and mostly in-between or a combination of good through bad—throughout many lifetimes (and not just on planet Earth) in order to explore, experience (especially the wide range of powerful emotions), enjoy, be challenged, learn, grow, evolve (physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually), and ultimately experience profound, Unconditional Love in physical reality (otherwise, it would only be a concept).
For instance, a person can read dozens of romance novels, watch multiple romantic comedy’s, and even hear about other people’s love life; however, until that person actually experiences falling and being in love, he/she will never truly know what it’s like.
Thanks to Sallie recently sharing her thoughts about working on becoming better, I was able to ponder the already familiar topic even further.
From a limited, linear, 3D, physical mind perspective, we may believe that we must hurry up and get to our “better” future self.
However, from an unlimited, multidimensional, 4D/5D+ perspective, I trust that our so-called past-selves, present-selves, and future selves are all simultaneously happening in the present Moment of Now where time and space don’t matter.
Therefore, we are now our so-called past/present/future highest self (aka Higher Self/Monad/Soul/Spirit/Source/Prime Creator) and past/present/future selves (aka angels/guardian angels/Archangels/Ascended Masters/spirit guides/animal spirit guides or totems/Elemental Realms/Family of Light/Family of Dark/Galactic Family/Universal Family, etc.)
Thank you Beloved Self/Physical Self/Soul/Spirit within.
