Unconditional love

Twin Flame Relationship of Psyche and Cupid

The Twin Flame Relationship of Psyche and Cupid

The love story of Psyche and Cupid (Eros in Greek mythology) is one of a beautiful twin flame relationship brought to us from Greek/Roman mythology. Psyche is the Greek word for butterfly, as well as soul, and as we examine the story of Psyche and Cupid, or Psyche and Eros as the case may be, we are touched by the tale of an eternal twin flame relationship. As the butterfly symbolizes transformation, as the caterpillar cocoons itself to become a butterfly, it also symbolizes the transformation we all must make as a result of having an eternal twin flame relationship in our lives. And Psyche symbolizes the eventual happiness and joy received as the reward for all the suffering endured on the road to that twin flame relationship.

Psyche, then, is the human soul, which is purified by sufferings and misfortunes, and is thus prepared for the enjoyment of true and pure happiness.  (From Bulfinch’s Mythology:  The Age of Fable,  chapter XI)

Twin Flame Relationship, Psyche by John Waterhouse

Psyche, a mortal princess, was the youngest of three daughters, who was known for her beauty. She was so beautiful that people began to worship her, rather than worshiping Venus (Aphrodite in Greek mythology), the goddess of love and beauty. Venus was enraged that she had lost the admiration of her people for a mere mortal and many of her temples began to crumble because there was no money to repair or sustain them. She was also very jealous of Psyche’s beauty so she summoned her son, Cupid (Eros in Greek mythology) to put a spell on her so no man would ever marry her. When he sprinkled the potion on her, he was so startled by her beauty he pricked both of them with an arrow. Her older sisters were married, but there was still no suitor for Psyche, so her parents consulted an Oracle, to see if she would find a husband. Aphrodite wanted revenge and convinced the Oracle to tell them Psyche would marry an ugly, evil monster. Yikes! Lesson number 1: Never piss off a goddess!

Psyche resigned herself to her fate and would sit on top of the mountain every night and await her husband, who was so hideous that he would only come to her in total darkness so she could not see his face. One night, after being encouraged by her sisters, she decided to look at his face. That night when he came to her, she raised the lamp to his face, only to discover she was married to Cupid. Surprised, he ran to the window and flew away, and she fell to the ground unconscious. When she awakened she went to seek the help of Venus, who gave her three impossible challenges to complete. After completing the first two challenges, she was given the final challenge to descend to the Underworld and return with a box of beauty from Prosperine (Persephone in Greek mythology), the wife of Hades (Pluto in Greek mythology). Even though she was told by Prosperine to keep the box closed, she could not resist the temptation to look inside. It was filled with darkness and she fell into a deep slumber.

Twin Flame Relationship

Cupid had to take action and appealed to Jupiter (Zeus in Greek mythology) to grant immortality to Psyche. Jupiter was so moved by Cupid’s love for his wife, he gave her a glass of ambrosia, the drink of immortality. Cupid and Psyche were joined in eternal marriage, an eternal twin flame relationship, and continue to live happily ever after. The story of Cupid and Psyche is the basis for the fairytale, Beauty and the Beast.

As we review the story of Psyche and Cupid, we can see the reality of their twin flame relationship. Even though she believed him to be hideous, she still had unconditional love for him. They had to overcome obstacles to be together, and through it all their love for each other won. Psyche had many adversities and life lessons, even going up against a goddess! Cupid loved her so much he asked Jupiter to grant her immortality so they could live eternally in their twin flame relationship love.

Do Soulmates Ever Stop Loving Each Other?

Do Soulmates Ever Stop Loving Each Other?

The bond that  manifests between soulmates comes from a soul level connection to another person. When soulmates are connected to the relationship, it can give you an incredible, exhilarating feeling. You spend a lot of time together, you talk, text and make love until the wee hours of the morning. You think each others thoughts and complete each others sentences and relinquish all thoughts of food as the only nourishment you need is the love you share with your partner. Then one day, perhaps without warning, the unthinkable happens. Your soulmate needs to take a break to tend to something else in their life, ends the relationship or decides for their own personal reasons to terminate the soulmate contract the two of you share.

Soulmate Reading Soulmate Love

A Soulmates Love Lasts Forever

After weeks, months and even years of living with this wonderful connection, it is gone. After experiencing such a powerful connection, it can be extremely painful, frustrating and depressing to go through soulmates separations and endings. Sometimes it is just a break that needs to be taken before continuing the relationship. Other times the break is a permanent one. In cases where the relationship between soulmates is ending, it can quite often it can take years to work through the emotions one can feel when losing this unusually close spiritual union. You may feel as if you can never love again. You may feel that you will be alone for the rest of your life. And in truth, neither of these situations is likely.

Once you have worked through the difficult emotions you will start to feel as if your old self is emerging. Only then are you reading to address what you will do with the love you felt toward your soulmate. And there you find it deep in your heart. LOVE. The love you feel toward this person who was so close to you but now is gone. Not the same intense love you felt when the two of you were together. But a love that feels comfortable when you remember the times the two of you shared. Even though you are no longer together you still feel, and will probably always feel, a closeness, a bond and a connection to that soulmate and the love you shared.

True soulmates relationships are based on unconditional love. When we love someone without condition, it means that we love them. Period. We don’t love them because of what they will do for us, for what they give us, and at times, they may not reciprocate our love. We love them in spite of their character flaws and behavior patterns that, in others, we would find totally intolerable. We love them purely for loves’ sake because of the soulmate connection and because we have loved them through all our incarnations and lives to come.

So the short answer to the question is No.  Soulmates do not stop loving each other, but the love changes form. The intensity of love will subside as time heals, and be replaced by a fond, loving memory of the life experiences shared, moments treasured and life lessons learned. Even though the ending of a soulmate relationship can be quite devastating, you will find your strength again as you work through your emotions and find your peace. Once you do, and you are safely on the other side, you will see the sun again.  Then you will be able to clearly see, know and appreciate why you had this soulmate relationship in your life. You will have grown, evolved and shifted your consciousness. You will have come through the fire and won.

And so, you will finally be able to look back at that soulmate with gratitude for the changes they brought into your life. You will have assimilated that transformation into the core of your being. You are a stronger, better person and although the road was not easy, you will look back with LOVE.  Love between soulmates is eternal. Loves between soulmates lasts forever. It may be in a different form but that love will be there until this lifetime ends and the next one begins and the soulmates find each other again.

Breaking Your Soulmate Contract

Breaking Your Soulmate Contract

A soulmate contract is the ‘document’ you create and agree to with your soulmate, or you many soulmates, before you incarnate for this lifetime. It is the agreement you make with him or her to provide some of the valuable life lessons you will have which will further define your character. Whenever we are working to define our character, it can often take strength, courage and fortitude. Soulmate life lessons can be very difficult. Unfortunately they have to be because as humans we generally learn through painful experiences. Many people in soulmate relationships have often described to us what they perceive as intolerable suffering because their soulmate is mistreating them. They often describe the relationship as a giant emotional roller-coaster ride, or the fear they experience daily, wondering if their soulmate might break up with them. They describe how they have endured weeks, months and sometimes years of unhappiness and bad behavior with the person they love acing out, mistreating them and otherwise making their lives miserable.

Breaking Your Soulmate Contract

When we ask them why they continue to stay in such horrible situations, the reply usually is because it is a soulmate relationship, they feel they have no choice, because of the soulmate contract. They insist it is about the connection, and even though they have tried to detach from the relationship, the soulmate keeps reeling them back in. Often they feel it is their purpose to love this person, allowing themselves to be mistreated, disappointed and unfulfilled, just because there is a soulmate contract. Often they give a soulmate much more slack than they would a regular relationship. Now do you think for one minute, the Divine really wants us to be mistreated, hurt and disappointed in our relationships and stay in situations that can become difficult, dangerous and even life threatening? Not so much.

The soulmate is obviously in your life for a reason. You are supposed to grow and evolve from your experiences with them. For example, lets say you have been in a romantic soulmate relationship for three years. Things were great for the first three months, but the remaining 2 years and 9 months have been difficult, painful and unfulfiling. No matter what you do to improve the relationship, it fails because the soulmate is unwilling to discuss, share or listen to ideas and suggestions to make the relationship better. You explain how your needs are not being met, but it falls on deaf ears or they just don’t care. Perhaps you need to evaluate the purpose of the relationship in relation to your soulmate contract.

You may be in a soulmate relationship, but that does not give your soulmate free license to treat you like crap! If they were not your soulmate, and just a normal, mundane relationship, you would probably not stand for that kind of behavior. So why are you allowing your soulmate to treat you that way?  “Because they are my soulmate”, is not a strong enough answer! Perhaps it is time to assess your soulmate contract or soulmate agreement to ascertain just exactly what it is you are supposed to be learning.  More than likely, the lesson is about staying in your power or taking your power back from a dysfunctional relationship. As I have already mentioned in a prior posting, The Most Common Soulmate Lessons, most soulmate relationships are to teach unconditional love, detachment and patience. Well, you can still unconditionally love someone without being in a relationship with them. Just unconditionally love them from afar.

If you are not happy in your romantic soulmate relationship, do you have to stay in it because of the soulmate contract? No. A soulmate contract can be fairly complicated as you each have agreed to provide and support each other through a series of life lessons and personal growth experiences. Perhaps your soulmate contract states you are to end relationships where you feel under-valued and unloved. Maybe you are supposed to walk away from a relationship with someone who regularly practices infidelity. You are more than likely supposed to end a soulmate relationship where you have been treated as a booty-call for several years, although you may truly feel love for that person. You can still love them, just love them from afar.

breaking your soulmate contract

Breaking Your Soulmate Contract

We can probably say with 98% certainty that your soulmate contract does not require you to indefinitely stay in a relationship that leaves you feeling unhappy. Why would the Divine subject you to that indefinitely? They won’t. But you can allow yourself to stay stuck until you realize you have 150% had enough. When the Universe wants us to learn a lesson, especially a lesson involving a soulmate contract, we will learn it. One way or another. We may go kicking and screaming through that lesson but we will learn it. There is nothing to be gained from staying in a soulmate relationship that leaves you unhappy and depressed except more unhappiness and depression. The Universe does not want us to be martyrs, they want us to live, love, laugh and evolve. Exercise your own individual free will, and get the heck out of there.

It is about assessing the situation fairly and deciding if this relationship truly works for you. If it does not, more then likely it is time to end it. This does not mean, however, you are ending your soulmate contract, it simply means you have completed  it and ready to move on. If you are giving your own personal power away day after day to some guy who is not stepping up to the plate, you should be able to see the nature of your soulmate contract. Take your power back! If he makes you feel like crap because he does not call when he says he will, does not spend quality time with you or only sees you for sex, stop it. That nature of your soulmate contract is in front of you.

Here is the real dilemma of the matter. If you continue to stay in that relationship that is making you unhappy and disempowered, then you are directly working against your destiny. If you stay stuck in that space, you will get that same life lesson again, in a different way, more than likely with a different soulmate because you did not get it the first time. So for example, you decide to stay in the unhappy soulmate relationship with someone who is cheating on you, because of your connection. You decide to love him, no matter what, to understand better the principle of unconditional love. What about loving yourself?  More than likely the cheating soulmate will end the relationship with you anyway, and then you are heart broken. After several years of healing, you meet another soulmate relationship and the entire cycle starts again. And if that is what it takes, all is well in the perfection of your soul, you will still have that life lesson.

You can end the contract by taking the step you need to take for your own personal happiness and fulfillment. You do not have to be a suffering martyr to a romantic soulmate relationship if you feel abused, degraded or unhappy. If you find yourself in this situation, end the relationship and end the karmic cycle between the two of you. More than likely you have been dancing this karmic dance for centuries, over and over playing different roles with each other, but the same scenario. Learn the lesson. Get off the roller coaster. Exercise your free will, that is why the Divine gave it to us. It does not mean you have broken your soulmate contract, it means you have completed it and overcome the challenges set forth in your agreement with that person. Congratulations!

 

Twin Flame Relationship Presley and Ethel Bradshaw

Twin Flame Relationship Presley and Ethel Bradshaw

Ethel and Presley Bradshaw twin flame relationship soulmates

Twin Flame Relationship

Presley and Ethel Bradshaw had a real twin flame relationship. This couple from Louisville, Kentucky were married October 21, 1938. They were married  for 73 years! All we can say to that is WOW! That is longer than my mom has been alive! Although Ethel entered a nursing home four years ago when her health started to fade, her husband continued to visit her until moving into the home to be with her two years later. They lived together for longer than a lifetime, and then on Monday, January 23, 2012, they died within four hours of each other. They are truly the perfectly divine example of kindred spirits and both a true soulmate and twin flame relationship.

Even though Ethel suffered dementia she certainly must have felt the disconnect of her husband and twin flame relationship partner, Presley. This loving husband would hold her hand and kiss her lovingly until the end. She may not have been consciously aware that he had departed the earthly plane, but her soul certainly must have. She could not, and would not, stay earthbound without him by her side. In twin flame relationship pattern, she too, just four hours later, quietly left this world to be reunited with him on the other side.

We can not know, nor pretend to know the life lessons these two great souls learned by being together. What we can  know, however, is that their being together was the karmic seed and foundation of their twin flame relationship. Their life lessons and spiritual growth was destined to occur while they were in the relationship together. Certainly they had issues, arguments and concerns just like any relationship would have, but they were destined to work through the issues and receive their personal growth together.

Twin Flame Relationship - Meeting in Heaven

As we have previously discussed in other postings, soulmates and their twin flame greater counterparts, usually do most of their spiritual growth, personal growth and character expansion during the breakup phases of the twin flame relationship. It seems that we, as humans have the greatest potential for growth and expansion when we are in pain. Painful experiences teach spiritual growth because when we are usually in that dark night of the soul, we reach out to the Divine to aid our suffering. Breakups and ending of a soulmate relationship, or twin flame relationship, are very painful experiences. It is during that time we are required to pull ourselves together and carry on with life without the soulmate by our side. In and of itself, this is a very challenging situation.

Presley and Ethel, however,experienced the details of their soulmate contract, or soulmate agreement, while they were together. That was the nature and destiny of their twin flame relationship. Few soulmate and twin flame relationships are destined to be together for the long haul. Soulmates come into our lives, we learn and assimilate the experience, and then sadly must end that soulmate relationship. At the time we are unable to see past the heartbreak and devastation we feel because all we can focus on is the loss of the soulmate and the disconnectedness we feel. This was so for Presley and Ethel. They lived, loved and experienced their lives together and were so connected that at the end, they had to depart together so their twin flame relationship could continue on the other side.  Ethel just had no reason to be here any longer without Presley and so she went to be with him to continue to hold his hand in Heaven.

Twin Flame Relationshp of June Carter and Johnny Cash

Twin Flame Relationship of June Carter and Johnny Cash

The twin flame relationship of June Cater  and Johnny Cash one of the great love stories. This morning I finished re-watching ‘Walk the Line’ starting Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix (who should have won the Oscar for that performance) as June Carter and Johnny Cash. I had watched this film when it was first released in 2005 and was touched by the story of these two legends whose 35-year marriage is one of the greatest love stories of all time. But as I finished watching it this morning I realized they truly had the ultimate soulmate / twin flame relationship that withstood the test of time. And what  a love story it is in its perfection and also a great example of a twin flame relationship.

Twin Flame Relationship June Carter and Johnny Cash

In the mid 1950s Johnny and June met during a tour of the Opry company. He fell for her right away although he was already married to his first wife, Vivian. Eventually his marriage failed when Vivian left him because of his drug and alcohol problems.  Johnny was even arrested in El Paso for trying to bring amphetamines from Mexico across the border but he never did ‘hard time’ as he wrote about in Folsom Prison Blues, and only had to pay a $1,000 fine to be released. He used drugs and booze to ease his way through life and deal with issues surrounding a verbally abusive and emotionally distant father as well as some guilt he may have internalized when his 12-year old brother died. June helped him kick his drug habit by being there for him and letting him know she would not really have anything to do with him as long as he was drugging and boozing. He kicked them both and proposed marriage to her many times before she finally relented, years later, and agreed to marry him. They married March 1, 1968, just about 12 years after their first meeting.

Not only is their twin flame relationship story is a fine example of unconditional love and patience, the two life lessons that are predominant in their relationship, but to the testimony of a changed man. While Johnny was boozing and drugging, June cared for him but she would not enable him, refusing to have that much to do with him, other than a friendship, while on the road together. What was their Soulmate Crisis Point? When his wife left him, Johnny wanted to be with June right away but she would not have him. She did not want to be around him. She just shut him down and detached from him to allow him to figure it out, although she did flush his drugs down the toilet a time or two.

Johnny had to pull himself up and out of the muck of his boozing and drinking ways, he had to put his ‘bad boy’ days behind him and become a good man. And he did. First and foremost, however, he did it for the right reasons, he did it for himself, but ultimately June was his prize. She was the catalyst who caused him to change his life, change his ways and evolve into the great man the world grew to love. The Man in Black became a legend and his music will live forever. Throughout his lifetime he attributed his success to the woman who loved him unconditionally and who was there for him, gently urging him to grow, evolve and become a man. I bet the soulmate contract between these two was something!! While she agreed to give him the unconditional love he never received from his father and he matured and developed into the strong God-loving good man he became. It so perfectly fits into the paradigm of a twin flame relationship because they could not be together until Johnny got HIS act together.

They were together until June’s death in May of 2003. Johnny was there with her in the hospital and he held her hand while she died. Johnny died a short 4 months and 3 days later where they were reunited.  I almost wrote to make preparations for their next lifetimes and to find each other again, but I pause… I am NOT convinced they had to come back and have another lifetime together… I hope they are able to stay on the other side in sweet, loving bliss. Their story is truly an inspiration to us as well as many others around the world. Profound blessings to you, June and Johnny, wherever you are, you truly got it! And this is one twin flame relationship story where they truly did live happily ever after.

Johnny wrote Flesh and Blood which was bout his love for June.

You can read about another great twin flame relationship with the soulmate story of Presley and Ethel Bradshaw.

Ring of Fire was written in 1963 by June to tell about their deep connection to each other and there are no better words in the world than these to define a twin flame relationship!

 

Lyrics to Ring of Fire

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire
