What’s A Soul Family?


I came across an article this morning which intrigues me.  Here  I found an article which explains the term soul family in an easy to read way.  I would love to hear your views on it if you have a few minutes and are inclined to read what John L. Payne has to say about the soul family connection.

This morning’s find helped me to accept peace within some my relationships which had previously been fraught with emotional misunderstandings.  I feel the need to explain to you and perhaps to clarify for myself that the bottom line in all of our relationships is to find the place of peace, love and acceptance for ourselves and for every single person/soul with whom we connect.

Whatever your beliefs, be in God, Buddha, the Universe etc., whatever your religious view, I think all boils down to one word ~ LOVE as LOVE is the universal connector, the medicine which heals through the heartlight which shines in the darkness of tragedy, loss, grief and even through death.

I’ve written before about our legacy after death in Love Them Deeply.   But it is in the now, the present moment which we all share that can be fraught with angst when we feel disconnected with ourselves and/or the multitude of souls in our life.  Disconnecting with our own selves doesn’t help us to forge connections with others.  To connect, we must empower our souls with self-love.  You may say, I love myself and for that gift, I am grateful.  You may believe that the term self-love is ego-driven, narcissistic or haughty.  Dear friends, in the pure light of love, self-love is none of those things.

When you are compassionate with yourself, you trust in your soul, which you let guide your life.

Your soul knows the geography of your destiny better than you do.”— John O’Donohue

I am blessed to be on this life journey with all of you.  I am ever grateful to my soul family for the lessons and learning which have come from the multitude of our shared varied experiences.  Another layer of understanding has been added to the tapestry of my life by reading, learning, listening and connecting with all the souls with whom I am continue to connect.  The beauty in life is that our soul’s journey continues to expand, to grow and to connect as we move along our chosen path on Earth.  With blessings and gratitude, I shine my heartlight out to you and accept and appreciate seeing yours shining as well.

♥ May your angels be with you today and always ♥

What’s up with 11/11?

November 11th, at 11am marks the end of World War I.  Here in the U.S., we commemorate this peace by celebrating Armistice Day or what is now referred to as Veteran’s Day.  Having had relatives who fought in many wars, I wanted to take the opportunity to honor all those who have served their country with goodness in their hearts.  Those who sacrificed their personal safety, their mental health and sometimes even their own lives to fight for peace, I lift up my gratitude to you wherever you are.

What a conundrum ~ to fight for peace, don’t you think?  What if today, we were able to be like E.T. The Extraterrestrial (do you remember the movie from 1982?) and turn on our love lights on this special 11/11 day?

Would you be so kind as to take a moment today at 11am or pm or even 11:11am/pm to stop whatever you are doing and to ‘send out love’ to the world? 

To send out peace, kindness and healing to everyone in the world. 

To say a silent prayer of gratitude to those who serve and who have served their countries. 

To honor those who have fallen, spiritually, mentally and even physically as a result of serving their countries.

11/11 is such a special spiritual set of numbers.  Did you know?  Do you often look at the clock to see 11:11 or 3:33 or 12:34?  I know this post is all over the place today, but there’s so much to cover ~ so please bear with me, have patience and stay on to the end! xo

So far this morning, I hadn’t found any other bloggers who were talking about the date today, but if you come across someone else, please comment below with their blog URL so that we can visit them too…it seems that many of us have had encounters with spiritual numbers like 1111 and just didn’t know what to do with them.  Are you even familiar with the concept?

I found here  a ton of info about 11/11 11:11 etc.  There’s too much to even begin to type in on my blog and having already gone past my self-imposed ‘5 minutes to read’ blog rule, I will leave it for you to peruse as your leisure, or not…whatever works for you!

In the meantime, my plea to take a moment at 11am/pm or 11:11am/pm or even at some point today and turn on your ‘heart light’ and send out peace, love and healing to yourself and to the world still stands.  I will be remembering you, my loved ones, the veterans and all who live on this planet Earth!

Shine On!
