SOUL AND SPIRIT ARTICLE
By Rosemary Gallagher - April edition 2016.
I used to float along in life, happy, content, expecting nothing much for myself. I didn’t have any great passion for anything in particular. And I certainly didn’t think I had any creative or spiritual talent of any sort. My only goal in life was to meet the man of my dreams and live happily ever after. In my mind, I didn’t need to be ‘successful’ as he would be. I’d be ‘the good wife’ sitting in the passenger seat, of his life. But thank goodness the universe had other plans for me!
To my surprise and those around me, my love life didn’t go the way I had planned. And aside from a few light-hearted encounters, no one had really caught my attention. It wasn’t until I was 46 that I finally met ‘the one’: my twin soulmate. I’d never heard of the word ‘twin flame’ before, so I didn’t understand at first why I felt the way I did; this certainty and knowingness that came from deep within my soul. I was consumed by him, yet he continually pushed me away. He was the ‘runner’ and I the ‘chaser’. I already had a strong connection to the angelic world, and had been professionally reading the tarot for a few years, however when I met my twin my spiritual journey escalated as I searched for spiritual answers to the emotional turmoil I was going through.
I also needed to find an outlet to express my feelings; the angst and frustration of not being together was getting me down. Someone suggested writing could be therapeutic. I wasn’t very good at writing, I found it difficult to write a few words on a birthday card. But I decided to give it a go and once I started I couldn’t stop; the words just poured out of me. Within two months I’d written my first book, which I went on to publish, called I Listened to My Heart. I also found a talent for lyric writing and I hope one day to write a #1 hit and maybe even win a Grammy! Now I am a woman with big dreams, in the driver’s seat of my life.
It took me a few years to understand that the twin flame relationship is primarily about the relationship with yourself. And once I finally went within, I knew I’d never go without again. I lost myself for a while in my twin, but through losing myself, I found the greatest love and gift of all: ME
Everything does happen for a reason!
