Heart And Soul Bonds

--by Michelle (Aug 21, 2017)

Our lives are greeted by different types of relationships. Some fun, some cozy and intimate, some crazy and adventurous, some inseparable. Nevertheless, there are also other type of connections, which transcend these. These are the heart and soul bonds. One does not need to talk or exchange messages but still there is a knowing or a feeling of the other person. Here the channels of heart and soul connection are alive. 
We have all experienced this at some moments in life. Like when you are wishing to eat a special dish and without saying a word your mother/father/housemate makes it for you. When you have suddenly thought of a friend and felt as though she was not ok and you call to say hi, you discover she is going through a tough patch. The electricity you feel running through your body when you connect with someone so profoundly. The time when you meet someone in your dreams and it feels so real. When you look deeply into someone's eyes and you just know their true essence.  When your spouse has a stomachache and u can feel the sympathy pain.  When you think of someone and then suddenly they call you unexpectedly and you say “Hey! I was just thinking of you!” When you are thinking about something and the next moment your friend talks about the same thing - almost completing your statements. 
We share them with a few people in our lives; we can actually share them with more. It sounds ridiculous. However, it exists for each one of us.

We often use methods to communicate like talking, texting, writing etc. and this is great but it is also amazing to connect at another level too. The heart and soul level. Here connection is effortless and consciousness is aligned. Being more awake to the present moment helps tune into each other. Intuition comes alive. Truly feel each other's heart spaces. It is transcendental and so beautiful.  You can send love across miles; it will be felt and received. The next time you meet with a friend or a loved one; sit for a few minutes together simply being in silence. Feel the sparkling connections that emerge.
These type of relationships can exist with everyone we know! That is the beauty of it.It connects all of us together in love and harmony. Much love to all of you this month! May many such heart and soul bonds grow and enrich all of the days of our lives. They are so meaningful.

 As I understand, there are two modes of connecting with others in our life:the doing mode and the happening mode.Right now I am in the doing mode. I am reflecting on what I am reading and communicating with whoever is reading my writing. This morning I got a message from my friend about passing away of another friend who had serious medical conditions.. I expressed my hear felt sadness and condolence to our friend's family. Such events happen in relationships. They are not spontaneous happenings that create a sense of awe and wonderment.

There are un-planed, effortless and spontaneous communication between me and my friends, relatives and students that create a sense of wonderment, surprise and excitement in me.Yesteday I was feeling the presence of my client in my heart and I got a call from her. Yesterday I went to Trader's Joe to purchase a few things. I ran into a Japanese lady whom I had never met before. Both of us felt as if we have met each other before. The first question that she asked me happily surprised me. She asked me if I was meditating. I forgot about looking for things I was going to buy. Her question took us in a different world.She was excited about talking about a book , Quiet, she has been reading. She suggested me to go the next door book store to buy this book.And I did. I asked the lady at the counter to help me find that book. Lo and behold! The book was right in front of me on the shelf as if  it was waiting for me!

There are times when I hear the sudden sound of thunder, unexpectedly waking me up! I feel grateful for receiving such gifts. Such gifts come from heart and soul-examples of synchronicity.

May we keep our heart and soul open to receive such gifts creating awe and wonderment!

 Heart and especially soul connections go beyond the material boundaries of space and time.  Our unconscious or spirit or soul or essence is beyond space and time, and it is at that level that our most significant connections with one another occur.  At that level, real me meets real you.  I have experienced "heart and soul bonds" in intimate -- and I don't mean sexual -- relating.  Such relating is personal, open, and honest.  In such relating, we are vulnerable and trusting.  In such relating, we are outside space and time.  All connections with others stay part of us forever, some only to a very minor extent, and the heart and soul bonds stay profoundly with us.  What helps me grow in "heart and soul bonds" is that they are fulfilling and enlivening, they feed a hunger in me, and they make life worthwhile.  I'm addicted.

Our hearts and souls are connected beyond boundaries, there is an energy present if we allow ourselves to believe in that magic and depth of possibility. I have felt this connection with several people in my life: even though my mother and I have a challenging relationship, she has a 6th sense as do I when it comes to each other. When the phone rings, I know without even looking it's her, this often happens for her too when she allows that kind of connection to be possible. I have this with someone I love in a romantic sense, he lives nearly 2000 miles away and yet I know instantly when he is having a difficult time. We only see each other a few times a year and yet we remain deeply connected across space and time. A friend from childhood, whom I had not seen nor heard from in 30 years came back into my life several years ago through the wonders of Facebook. We picked up nearly exactly where we left off at age 12 as if no time or space between us passed at all. I have this relationship with people I've met on my world travels, we may only have ever spent a week together and yet our hearts and souls remain connected through our shared experiences. I feel very fortunate that I have experienced this connection so many times in so many different ways/contexts. It helps me right now in a time when I live in what can be a very disconnected place: Washington DC and I serve part time at the World Bank, such a heady, cerebral place. To be reminded again of heart and soul was very much needed today. Thank you. 

I think and believe the growing in heart and soul bonds comes from allowing the possibility to exist and not trying to categorize it or buying into what society often tells us a friendship or relationship *should* be, but rather enjoying the magic that *can* be. Hugs from my heart to yours, I hope you feel it....

 I know from my life experience that whenever my heart and soul were aligned, things happened naturally, I was able to to look at obstacles not as obstacles to overcome, but a point of connectivity. I felt peoples' love and generosity towards me and I've been able to show my love and generosity from the heart. it's magical and indescribable. I've also experienced it when I've used my body movement/energy dance and have expressed what's deep inside. Then all of a sudden some friends have popped up in my mind that later I receive a communication from them telling me what's going on with them, or I'll have an urge to connect with them and will find out something is actually going on that I can help or I should know. Many years ago a family member was suffering from major depressions and coincidentally I started sending her loving and healing energy, just cause! I forgot about it and a week later, my family called and said she has miraculously shifted her attitude and have stared cooperating with her treatment and has come out of her dark place. I love it when I can be in that space. I think the whole service space is a place for people to get to align their heart and soul.

 When I was a nursing student (back in the early 80s), it was my gift of "connecting" that got the attention of my instructors.  Not gifted in the areas consistent with most seeking higher education, my ability to touch hearts and souls with understanding and HOPE, kept me in the game.   We are ONE body in Christ ...
