“Reincarnation sometimes plays a ‘heavy hand’ in why some soul mates are drawn to each other at first glance. We have all been born and reborn in all the major civilizations on Earth. Each time in each lifetime when a close bond of love or hate has been set up between two people, it is recorded in both souls. Nothing is ever forgotten once it has been experienced by any form of consciousness.
In this one area alone, we may have a huge pool of lives with lovers. This is why when someone from a past lifetime enters a room or walks before us, there is an innate recognition, a pleasant– or sometimes quite unpleasant– familiarity.
It follows then, if we had a wonderful rapport with that person in a past lifetime, it would be easy if all conditions are also favorable, to re-enter another relationship based on soul memory. It works the other way around as well. Someone we despised or hated in another lifetime many again appear to us so that we may now learn what is also lovable about them.
We can behold God within anything or anyone if we only look deep enough.”
