Abstract: In this article, Zinovia Dushkova explains the nature of soul mates from the viewpoint of ancient esoteric teachings. By providing the principles of human sevenfold structure, she clarifies what underlies short-lived love between people and who our true soul mates really are.
People have always searched for their other halves, the ones they are destined for. However, often when people think that they have finally found their soul mates, after some time that idea turns out to be wrong, and two people who had seemed to be an ideal couple suddenly part ways.
To understand the depths of this question, we need to turn to the knowledge of antiquity. In many sacred texts, the number 7 is indicated as sacred. It was laid out as a code during the creation of our planet. Therefore, everything in our world has a sevenfold structure. For instance, a human being is formed by seven principles:
In the traditional concept of body-soul-spirit, the body is represented by the first three principles, the soul is the emotional-mental body, and the spirit is the unity of the Supreme Mind, Soul, and Spirit. Each of these principles, except for the physical and etheric bodies, is in fact only an aspect or state of our consciousness, and all of them are also sevenfold in structure. Unfortunately, the human mind is not able to track the activity of each of them.
The four lower principles constitute a quaternary, which is mortal. This is our personality. Meanwhile the three higher principles, called the triad, are immortal, and this is our individuality. It is the individuality which continuously reincarnates itself, each time “clothing” itself in a new personality.
The world at the level of the quaternary is binary, whereas it is androgynous, or unified, at the level of the triad. In the Higher Spiritual World, or in the Heavens, there is no separation of the sexes. That is, man and woman are a single creature at the level of their triad. When this single individuality is about to incarnate itself in our earthly and binary world, its triad is divided at the level of the quaternary — thus actually becoming the persons of a man and a woman. However, the invisible link between them is always maintained at the level of their triad.
The human triad has its own individual accumulations, frequency of vibrations, and energy formula. When it splits into two, this unique quality of energy is preserved and inherent in the two newly formed halves, which compose their lower bodies according to this formula. That is, each time it reincarnates itself, the human triad creates four lower bodies for itself, like sewing clothing according to a pattern.
In Nature and the Cosmos, everything is organized extremely wisely and, as we know, the law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be transformed from one form into another. That is why, when the time comes for people to depart into the Higher Worlds, they throw off these lower bodies. Then they can wear these discarded garments again in their next earthly reincarnations, but other individualities can also “pick them up,” if the energy formula that created them is similar to theirs.
This means that we might have created many other bodies throughout our numerous lifetimes on Earth: for example, the other seven halves of our own seven bodies could be somewhere in the world. So, if the emotional body dominates in us, then, through the power of our vibrations, we may attract the very person who has in their structure the other half of our emotional body, or simply a body which is similar to ours in terms of its energy formula. In this case, we may have the same emotions or thoughts; however, it will be human love, which is transient and short-lived.
Meanwhile, our true soul mate is the one at the level of the triad, which was split into two parts in this binary world. There is only one other half of our triad, but it may be located in a completely different world. And even if it is now embodied as a human being, that person will not necessarily be what we imagine: remember the symbol of Tao. The most important thing is to recognize them, because here divine love and vibrations are present.
Esoteric teachings say that such true soul mates have never met each other on Earth, because of certain reasons that cannot be revealed to humanity. The only exceptions were the unions thanks to which Jesus Christ and other Saviors were born. The mystical union of the parents of the Coming Messiah will in turn give a powerful impetus to the future unification of all other soul mates. These, after reunification with each other, will start a new cycle of their evolution, but now in different and higher conditions of life.
