Romancing The Soul
By Dorothy Thompson

      People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do...

       Finding your soul mate is a journey deep into the unknown. It is traveled each day by those who are in search of that special someone to complete their lives. Until that unknown person is found, the journey is long and often seems fruitless. Once discovered, it is well worth the wait.

       Before I read Dorothy Thompson's Romancing The Soul, I was unaware that I lived with such shallow knowledge of what a true soul mate consisted of and that they could be the love of your life. This book thoroughly opened up my eyes to discover there are three types of soul mates: Twin Flames, Karmic, and Companion. Each one of them has their own unique purpose. The Twin Flames are the ones that I thought were your true soul mates. It is the one person who holds an eternal flame that your soul burns for each day. A Karmic soul mate consists of people who enter your life in order to teach you a very important lesson. Once their mission is complete, the individual will often fade out of your daily life. The companion soul mate can include your wife/husband, a friend or close confidante. Their existence is to provide you comfort in hard times; it is the shoulder you cry on in time of need. Unfortunately, some of these relationships dissolve if ever a twin flame comes into existence, for destiny is a fate that will not go unanswered.

        What makes this book so unique is that it offers so much variety with more than sixty true stories. These heart-warming stories are broken down into three different sections with true-life stories that actually happened to the authors. All of them center around soul mates and how they have changed each one of their lives. I feel that it accurately captures the true essence of what the word "love" truly means. I found myself caught in a roller coaster of emotions that quickly went spinning out of control. Very highly recommended.
