It’s a word that is most commonly identified with romantic love. The person who has the lock that fits your key. The person who betters you. Your life-long partner. The One.
For us, the word “soulmate” means so much more.
“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before they encounter each other.” – Paulo Coelho
Having both come off of recent heart breaks from men we thought could fit that mold, there was a space created for something better.
In a divine twist of fate, we encountered each other. While we worked at the same place for almost a year, it wasn’t until we were both blindsided by a friend’s suicide that we came together in a moment of darkness to find the same light within each other.
It wasn't through long, deep conversations. It wasn't through months and months of getting to know each other, because, in reality, we knew each other all along. It was in a night of celebrating a life instead of mourning a death. It was the moment we chose love over fear. It was through playing and enjoying and laughing and dancing and sharing opinions on outfits that we truly connected.
"You can learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation." - Plato
Who knew moshing out to a Russian mafia band would seal our fate!? All it took was a glass of champagne, a few kind words in honor of our friend and bond was created beyond that of anything we already had. It was obvious. We had found a soulmate in each other.
We have been able to shift so much for each other in the short time that we have been connected, that it was obvious we needed to start connecting with more people. There is so much we have to share. The idea of creating a spiritual blog together was an easy one. It is our gateway, our mission, our calling, our personal legend.
Our name, Soul Soiree, was thought of in a day. The message behind it unfolded within days and so naturally it was as if we had been building up to this moment for years. We would talk the day after a meeting about how neither of us could sleep because we were so excited about our future and filled with ideas. Kinda effing cool when a fire burns deeply for a love different than we are accustomed to!
“What we find in a soulmate is not something wild to tame but something wild to run with.” – Robert Brault
So here is the deal, we want to make "soulmates" out of each of you! Soul Soiree embraces soulmates, both romantic and not, and perpetuates spiritual, mental and emotional growth with a YOLO attitude in one hand and glass of champagne in the other.
