So many questions can evolve around a soul mate. For example is there such a person and if so does he/she live in the present time? Could a soul mate simply mean some kind of spiritual guide where someone, somehow, is watching over us? Does a soul mate have to be of the opposite sex to us or do our sexual inclinations dictate this? These are just a few of the questions regarding this subject. Once a soul mate has been identified, does it necessarily mean that there has to be romantic connections also? You may have guessed that I don't have the answers to this. However, when it came to writing "The Meadow", there was no ambiguity. We identified two souls who were inextricably bound to each other throughout eternity. Maybe this is the way people like to think of what true soul mates are. If so, you will enjoy what "The Meadow" has in store for you. - Mike O'Hare
Marriage: The Soul Mate Marriage
By Jeff Herring
Marriage partners can be soul mates. This is the absolutely best type of marriage, although it is rare.
In recent years, books, songs, movies and other popular media have extolled the glories of the soul mate marriage. While it does exist in real life, it is a bit more difficult to come by than the popular culture leads us to believe and expect.
Signs of Soul Mates
Connected at a soul-ullar level
Each partner believes they got the better deal
Passion is high and remains high
Know each other well
Take care of each other's heart
How to Get There
We are led to believe by the popular culture that one day you will look across a room, lock eyes with someone, and the two of you will be instant soul mates. While that does happen in the movies, it's important to remember that in the movies everyone has a script, know what is coming, and have as many takes as needed to get it right.
In my experience a soul mate relationship is intentionally created and actively maintained. Couples learn to see through each other's eyes, and keep the lines of communication open. Forgiveness flows freely as needed.
The bottom line to remember is that a soul mate relationship is not accidental, it is intentional.

THE MEADOW -- A SPIRITUAL ROMANCE
"The Meadow" is an epic love story unlike anything told before. The storyline threads an earthly path through four life times, from ancient Mexica to contemporary Pakistan, and affords the reader glimpses of a place known as "The Meadow" - an inter-life waterhole where souls rest between lives.
This is a story about life and all its complexities. It is about the eternal love of two characters that seem destined to be together but who repeatedly fail to bond due to a nemesis that tracks them from life to life, tearing them apart.
The stage of "The Meadow" includes hate and retribution, international espionage and political deceit, interspersed with the brilliance of an autistic savant, offspring of the female protagonist, who tries to solve the secret and mystery of the eagle in order to save his mother.
The frustrated lovers thus have only one option - to unite in the Meadow - a place they forget all about each time they incarnate into a new life.
This site is dedicated to "The Meadow", a book of more than 600 pages and has yet to be published, but it is also devoted to sharing information about life beyond the trapdoor of death, inviting the reader to question everything, from dogmatic beliefs to the establishment.
There are many related articles here and we hope that there will be something for everyone. We hope to encourage communication and discussion between likeminded individuals willing to share their experiences to further our common goals of advancement into the future whilst learning from each other.
