Destiny, Soul Mates and “Meant to Be”

Original article by Psychic Medium Andrea.  

I get this question a lot when doing psychic mediumship readings for others. “Are we meant to be?”, “Are we destined to be together?” or “Is it written in stone that we are to be together?”  I asked my Archangels and Jesus, who I usually connect to during a reading, what the answer was. It seems like there are several scenarios. One scenario is that two people are meant to meet, meant to be together to produce children who’s souls they are meant to journey with and learn from. In this scenario, they can still stay together or split at the end after the children are produced depending on free will and whether they work out their issues.  Our parents didn’t split as much as later generations because of cultural and familial pressure, not to mention it was much harder to be a single mother before the 1990’s.   The second scenario seems to be that the two are meant to meet in a lifetime, and learn relationship lessons with each other.  It doesn’t always mean they will be together in a romantic relationship but they were still meant to meet, which gets confusing to many of my clients.  The connection feels so strong they think the connection itself will do the work for them.  The length of the relationship in this latter scenario seems to rely more on whether they work on their issues.  Put into the mix people’s own pride, beliefs and fears and the relationship becomes more complex.

Many times I do receive that two people were meant to meet, but they may not always work out usually due to communication issues. Communication issues, commonly the lack of expressing emotion, feelings and their interest for the other person, is one of the most common scenarios I run into in relationship readings to date. Many of these issues arise from societal and cultural beliefs that we pick up from many different sources such as family, friends, media, movies and co-workers.  Many parents still tell boys to not show emotion, although hopefully that is taking a turn for the better from what I’ve seen of the millennial generation. This leaves many women wondering what their men think and want.  It leaves them frustrated, especially in the world of texting where women expect an immediate answer to their text as we know our cell phones are near us most of the time. We also tell ourselves to be independent and not rely on others, creating the anxious/avoidant (push/pull, chase/run) dynamic seen in attachment theory.  Other common scenarios I encounter is one person wants the other to reach out as they are too afraid to reach out themselves and not receive an answer (fear of rejection). If one person feels this way it is very possible the other person is feeling the same, leaving them in a stalemate.

To sum up, watch out for areas that you can learn and grow, be honest with compassion, and communicate out your problems with your partner in a wise, empathic way. Look past pride to see both sides of the issue and don’t rely on “meant to be” to carry your relationship until death do you part.
