Many people believe in predestined relationships. We don’t believe predestined relationships exist in terms of we will be together no matter what. But we do believe destiny brings two people together through chance encounters or the aligning of the stars. While these may feel like serendipity or synchronicity, it’s more the karmic agreement you have with another soul. Before you were born, you decide to meet at a certain place and time. So when we (Sarah and Sophia) speak of predestined relationships, we mean agreements between soulmates for completion of a karmic task. That’s the predestined part. There is never any guarantee it will turn into a relationship.
PREDESTINED MEETINGS NOT PREDESTINED RELATIONSHIPS
Some folks believe destiny will guarantee romantic success for soulmate relationships. And this can happen in some cases. Destiny certainly plays a role when meeting someone you wouldn’t meet under normal circumstances. But destiny doesn’t participate in how this relationship ultimately unfolds. Destiny plays it’s role by putting you both in the same place at the same time. But this doesn’t indicate it’s a predestined relationship. The chance encounter was predestined, but for destiny to unfold, you must each be willing to see it through. The Universe produces the connection. And the free will choices determines where it ultimately goes.
People who believe in predestined relationships believe the relationship will be full of roses, candles and moonlight walks on the beach. Since destiny brings them together, certainly fate will kick in to make it a perfect romantic adventure. Destiny can only do so much. And it won’t do all the work for you nor will it guarantee the quality of a relationship. So while the opportunity to meet a romantic partner is part of your fate, you much each individually do the work within the relationship. The two people and their willingness to work together to build a happy, healthy life produces a long-lasting partnership. If you believe in a set outcome for a predestined relationship, what’s the point of the actual dating process? Interesting food for thought.
RAISING YOUR SPIRITUAL AWARENESS
We define these meetings before we’re born. So of course they will come with spiritual growth. As we keep saying, many life lessons come through painful experiences. So what does this relationship want to teach you? Now some of them actually create wonderful relationships. But unfortunately they can’t all be positive experiences. Destiny doesn’t always bring us joyful events. And sadly it’s usually to learn a hard one. So what happens when the going gets tough? The outcome relies on the two people involved. Too often people drop the ball expecting fate and destiny to sustain their relationship. But they need to do the work themselves.
If you believe destiny can make a relationship work then you also must accept destiny can make them fail. You can’t have one without the other. Some predestined relationship can lead someone to the right relationship for them. Many people share their experiences with us.
LET’S TALK ABOUT MARY
For example, someone we will call Mary saw a predestined relationship turn into a complete disaster. No matter how hard she tried to make it work she hit obstacles and barriers she couldn’t overcome. Their meeting was predestined and she believed that alone indicated it was meant to be. In truth, the relationship made her miserable. But she wouldn’t give up. She believed so strongly it would work out. Well she was wrong.
This relationship was predestined, but not for the reason Mary thought. Once she learned the lesson, and let it go, a better relationship awaited her. Looking back, she sees how the experience led her to the happy, fulfilling relationship she is enjoying today. So although this predestined relationship failed, it ultimately led her to a successful, romantic partnership.
Destiny is not cupid. Destiny doesn’t surround your relationship in a protective bubble to keep it together forever. Predestined relationships allow us to take the opportunities we’re given and make the best of them, regardless of the final outcome. The beginning of a relationship can be predestined. But you must all take responsibility for how the relationship unfolds.
