You will sometimes meet someone you believe is a soul mate; you feel the connection on many levels, perhaps instantly. And as you get to know each other more, you begin to feel the connection deepen and you feel that you must have an arrangement with this person that predated this lifetime.
Do not assume, however, that this soul connection necessarily means that you are meant to be happily together for this lifetime. It may be that you are meant to be friends and allies, helping each other out. It may be that you are going to help each other in ways that even involve conflict and separation, but with an end result that is beneficial to you. It may be that you are going to learn some lesson from each other and then go your separate ways.
This morning we have a message from a power animal that I know well. I first met him years ago when I was doing power animal retrievals, then again more recently in my Power Animal Adventures. He is an enormous sperm whale known as The Ancient One; it is always so wonderful to hear from him. And is now our way, Quado has added a few words at the end of his message.
In the end, what you have is yourself, who you are in your core, the truth and integrity that are you. In the end, this is what you have.
Your success in the outside world can depend so heavily on the opinions and actions of others that you can become confused, believing that you make terrible mistakes, wondering if others like or respect you, wondering what you did wrong, in a state of perpetual worry that you are somehow not enough. And when this happens and all you feel is some distorted reflection of what you think others want from you, of what you think they expect from you in order for you to succeed, then you can lose your way and become nothing but a bundle of nerves.
Today is a day for balance, for all sides of yourself to be in harmony. Take a look at your emotional state and see if this is so. If not, then spend extra time breathing deeply and centering yourself to get back a good balance between engagement within this life and your deep centered core.
Look also to make sure that you have not gone too far in the other direction. You need to be peaceful and centered, but you also need to be in a state of action, in which you are taking full responsibility for how you handle your daily life, including money, physical health and relationships. It can be a difficult balance to achieve indeed, but you are fully capable of it.

Today, right now, let us take a journey into this moment, deeply into now, deeply into this well of peace and joy which is this moment and this moment only.
Let yourself drift down and down, deeply into this moment. Feel the past releasing. Feel your mind quieting as you cease all thought about tomorrow. Feel your tensions disappearing as you cease all worries. Feel the regret lifting from you as you abandon yesterday, letting it be as it was, letting go of hurts and disappointments, expectations unfulfilled, fears and doubts which kept you from doing what you had desired. Feel all of this lifting from you as you go deeper and deeper into this moment.
Breathe deeply as you immerse yourself into this place of now, this moment and this moment only. Come deeper and deeper, enveloped in the velvety presence, the soft enfolding oneness of being.
Immerse yourself in gratitude, for this is the liquid that will dissolve the old hurts and ways of being. This is the healer, this gratitude, deep loving gratitude for life itself. Let everything dissolve and dissolve into gratitude until you are only your most essential self.
