You all know that I’m incredibly metaphysical. Literally, everything I do is influenced by spirituality. Without spiritual enlightenment, we’re all just wandering the earth aimlessly. The secrets of the Universe can help my clients, you and me with finding true love. That’s why I’m constantly seeking them out.
One of the best resources I’ve found on my spiritual journey is Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment. If you don’t know, Edgar Cayce was the most documented psychic of the 20th century. Think of him like a second coming of Nostradamus. Cayce was known as the “sleeping prophet” because he gave readings in a trance state. While lying down in a relaxed, meditative state, he’d give readings about medical treatments, past lives and what was coming in the future. He’s very well known for his holistic health readings, which were incredible, but he also helped people with their love lives. He’d tell people where and how they’d meet their future spouses and soul mates.
Unfortunately, Cayce died in 1945, but his legacy continues through the work of the A.R.E. The institute is dedicated to Cayce’s teachings and sharing his philosophies. I was lucky enough to interview Kevin Todeschi who’s the Executive Director and CEO of A.R.E. and a personal hero of mine. He’s a student and teacher of Cayce’s work. I’ve been reading Kevin’s books for years and giving them to friends, family and clients because his writing is the easiest way to understand and apply Cayce’s philosophies. I was lucky enough to interview Kevin recently and dig into Cayce’s thinking on soul mates. Here are the five most important things I learned.
- Your boo’s out there
Cayce believes that everyone has a soul mate. So, he’s out there, babe. You can stop stressing. Even better news, Kevin said, “We all have the potential for many soul mates.” There is no one perfect person. In Cayce’s philosophy, there are many potential soul mates out there for each and every one of us, which can really take the pressure off dating. I’m so over Western culture’s idea of only one lid for every pot. A lot of very different people can make you happy and it’s up to you to find and select the one you want to be with.
- You’re lonely for a reason
Here’s something that blew my mind. If you feel lonely and like it’s impossible to meet a special boo, it’s probably because you need to make a change in another area of your life, not in romance. Kevin says that we need to let our soul do what it’s meant to do so we can be the people we’re meant to be and meet the people we’re meant to meet. Kevin gave this example: If you’re a creative spirit, but force yourself to work 40-plus hours a week in a boring job with no creative outlet, no matter how much you put yourself out there romantically, you’re not going to meet a mate because your soul is suffering. “If we’re not doing what we’re really supposed to be doing at a soul level, that can manifest as loneliness,” he says. Lonely single people, look up from your swiping apps and into the mirror. What do you need to change about your life to get your energy ready for love?
- Dreams hold the key
Kevin is a renowned expert on dream interpretation, but he says anyone can turn to their dreams to find their soul mate. According to Kevin, dreams are our subconscious expressing itself and “you can get insights from your subconscious into whatever question you might have.” If you’re looking for a soul mate, here’s what you do: Ask a question about your soul mate before you fall asleep at night. Write it down on a piece of paper and slip it under your pillow or leave it right by your bed. Then, as soon as you wake up, write down the first things you remember from your dreams. If you do this regularly, you’ll get insights into your subconscious mind and information on your soul mate. It might not be as clear-cut as the first name of who you’re going to marry, but it could be learning what you need to change to make yourself ready for love, which is actually even more helpful.
- Attraction is need-based
Forget old school rules like opposites attract or like attracts like. Kevin explains, “We’re drawn to certain people in an effort for us to become whole within ourselves.” For example, if you need to learn patience, the Universe might bring a particularly frustrating person into your life to teach you a lesson. If you need to learn to appreciate your strengths, the Universe will bring you someone with the same strengths and show you how much you admire those qualities. Instead of focusing on similarities and differences between your romantic partner and you, think about what you can take from the relationship to become more complete. That is why the Universe brings people together, romantically and otherwise.
- It’s on you
One of my favorite Cayce lessons is that your love life is a combination of predetermination and free will. According to Kevin, when it comes to finding one of your soul mates, “the meeting is fated. What you do with that meeting is free will.” The Universe will bring you together with your soul mates, if you choose to make yourself energetically ready. Then, once the meeting happens, it’s up to you to take the reins and turn the Universe’s gift into love. I’m really into this idea because of course I have faith in the Universe, but I also know that we as people can do a lot to change and improve our situation. The way Kevin presents Cayce’s philosophy makes total sense to me. We all need to do our part because the Universe is already doing its part.
Your soul mates are out there. Learning more about Edgar Cayce’s philosophies can help you find them, so check out the A.R.E. It’s an incredible resource for anyone who wants to improve themselves on emotional, physical and spiritual levels. There are study groups, conferences and just a ton of interesting information available through the A.R.E. And I can’t kvell enough about Kevin’s books. My favorite is Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates. It’s case studies of people who knew Cayce and reports from more modern people. It explores all kinds of soul mates, not just romantic partners. Highly, highly recommend.
Hope you loved learning more about Cayce as much as I did! If you have more questions for Kevin, leave them below. It would be a dream to get another chance to speak with him. So, give me a reason!
