Does Science answer the Soulmate Dilemma?

If you are a regular visitor here on MK you will know that not only are there may articles on here which you can use as a resource to attract in a soulmate but that the subject of soulmates comes up for frequent discussion. I always make it very clear to people that we have more than one soulmate. In fact, the majority of the relationships and connections that happen during our lifetimes – the ones that influence us the most even on a negative level, are usually soulmate relationships and something we have agreed to experience before coming here with the soul in question. A soulmate can be a parent, a sibling or other family member, a friend, a boss, a co-worker, a mentor, a business partner, a teacher – even an animal. In other words, soul mate relationships are more than just romantic partnerships or connections. And just as we have many many soulmates, we can have more than one soulmate in any given area of our lives.

Having emphasised this time and time again over the years, I was really happy to see science wade in on the soulmate question this month. In his book What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions which was published this month, Randall Munroe answers the question, what if everyone had only one soulmate? Based on this proposition, Munroe calculated that given the number of people we will run into during the average lifetime, even taking into consideration reincarnation as a factor, our chances of encountering this one soulmate statistically speaking, work out as once in 10,000 lifetimes. So, for 9,999 lifetimes we would in fact, be soulmateless.

Now, this clearly does not happen otherwise the majority of the human race would be walking around lonely and broken hearted. What it does prove on a statistical level is however that we therefore must have many soulmates – and that includes soulmates of the romantic kind as well as soulmates in every other relationship category we can think of. I believe our soul contracts with soulmates mean we will encounter them in this lifetime but of course, these can be changed and it is also always up to us what decisions we make around the relationship. If we step back and think about how many lifetimes we may have already experienced, it goes without saying we have many soulmates we have travelled with. When we incarnate, our relationships with these soulmates may be very different to what they were in a previous lifetime – so a former marriage or romantic partner could be a family member or a teacher in this one, and vice versa.

So, if you have recently been through a relationship breakdown and feel you have lost your soulmate, think again. Also, bear in mind that if you are going to do any of the rituals or visualisations on MK to manifest a soulmate – who you manifest will be the soulmate with the most to teach you right now – and this may not necessarily be a romantic one. But keep in mind that statistically – science has just proved that you cannot have just one which is for me, the most exciting soulmate news of all.
