Twin Flame Relationship Presley and Ethel Bradshaw
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.
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.
