The Spiritual Dimension of Love and Relationships; the quest for love and for that perfect mate is really a quest for wholeness, and there are three types of romantic relationships that help lead one to this wholeness: twin flames, soul mates and karmic relationships.
Soul Mates, Twin Flames, and Karmic Relationships
Twin flames were created together in the beginning and share a unique destiny. Created in a single fiery ovoid, they were separated into two spheres of being—one in a masculine polarity and the other in a feminine polarity—but each with the same pattern of divine identity. Though they spend some lifetimes together and others apart, their tie is eternal, and after they have each united with their Higher Self they will be together forever. But not all the beautiful and soul fulfilling loves are those of twin flames.
A soul mate tie is different from that of the twin flame. Whereas we each have only one twin flame, we can have many soul mates. Soul mates sometimes share a complementary calling in life. They are partners and helpmates who are often working to develop the same virtues and to master the same chakras. These relationships tend to be harmonious and satisfying, and such kindred souls can accomplish great things together.
Then there is the karmic relationship. Here the two individuals are drawn together for the balancing of mutual karma. The karmic tie may be the tightest of all and begin with the strongest attraction. This is because the soul has a deep yearning to be free, and has an inner knowing that this connection is a key to resolution through balancing karma that is often harsh, such as violence, hatred, abandonment or even murder. From time to time, there is a feeling of emptiness, a loneliness that reveals the inadequacy
of a relationship based solely on karma. Yet though they are frequently difficult, these relationships are important in achieving self-mastery on the spiritual path.
Part One Summery Almost everyone experiences all three types of relationships over the course of their lifetimes. The key to wholeness in all of them is to love their predestined soul.
A Kabalistic Counsel on Soul Mates
“If and when an individual, while growing up follows the Sefirotic pattern for growth and maturity as outlined in the ancient texts; the chances are that due to proper Sefirotic alignment he/she will draw to themselves their intended soul mates without too much difficulty. However, not everyone is so blessed to be raised in such a balanced spiritual way. Most of us have had to suffer the confusions of the bankrupt morals of western culture, which unfortunately has even penetrated deep into the heart of the most Orthodox communities.” “Keep in mind that sexuality is the doorway to spirituality. When we mess up sexually by being active at too early an age and in all the wrong ways, this takes a definite toll on our spiritual selves.”

Twin Flames, Soul Mates, & Karmic Partners : The Marriage Union
The Marriage Union
God has blessed the human institution of marriage as an opportunity for two individuals to develop wholeness through the exchange of their Alpha-Omega polarities. Whether the union of twin flames, soul mates, or karmic partners, the marriage of man and woman is meant to be mystical, a commemoration of the soul's reunion with the beloved “I AM” presence through the Christ, the blessed Mediator.
Jesus demonstrated the importance of marriage as an initiation on the Path when he chose to perform his first public miracle at the marriage feast of Cana— changing the water into wine. The essence of his message was that unless marriage was transformed by the Holy Spirit, it will only be an outer experience.
It is our choice as to whether we are content with a marriage based on the water of the human consciousness or whether we require a marriage based on the wine of the divine consciousness.
The cosmic interchange of divine love in the marriage relationship is meant to be the same creative love that framed the universe in the beginning when God as Father gave forth the command, "Let there be light," and God as Mother answered, "And there was light." This creative flow can be expressed not only in physical union but also during cycles of dedicated celibacy as each partner goes within to commune with his beloved I AM Presence.
The Exchange of Energies
The exchange of the energies of the sacred fire in sexual union is for the transfer of spheres of cosmic consciousness— causal bodies of light. The light energy resulting from this fusion enhances the positive qualities of each of the partners and strengthens their own divine identity—enabling them to carry their shared burden of karma.
As the union is consecrated to the love of God, the harmonious blending of pure Father/Mother energies yields the Son, the Christ consciousness—whether it be in the form of a child, an inspiration, a successful enterprise, or a work of art.
When this exchange is not spiritualized through recognition that God is the lover and the beloved, the two individuals may experience physical pleasure, but they also unknowingly take on each other's karmic patterns attracting much unnecessary suffering without the benefit of a spiritually Trans-mutative love.
This may explain the frequent feeling of falling out of love, loneliness, and the identity crises suffered by those who have intimate relationships on a casual basis; these individuals take on so many karmic identities, effectively neutralizing their own, that they no longer know who they really are.
The Yearning for Wholeness
The oncoming Aquarian age is an age for the understanding of God's energy in polarity as the masculine and feminine principles of the universe. How we experience that energy as our true identity, how we understand it as the essence of twin flames, and how we use it as the integrative power of divine love for the betterment of mankind will determine whether or not we survive as individuals and, ultimately, as a human race.
Part Two Summery
You may be reading this article because the only thing that stands between you and your soul mate, twin flame, or karmic lover is a layer of negative energy just waiting to be consumed by the joyous, bubbling action of the violet flame.
Your mission, and that of your predestined partner; is to achieve the ultimate reunion in the heart of God that has waited for you so long!
THE KARMIC LAW OF LOVE RELATIONSHIPS
“The karmic law of Love Relationships is that each partner will usually manifest or attract a partner with their same deficiencies or fears because the ultimate goal of love relationships is the full flowering of each partner in their own inner joy and perfection”
by Allen L Roland
True relationship is a dance of intimacy ( a means to an end versus an end in itself ) wherein both partners continually take hold and let go ~ leading eventually to true SELF, inner joy and validation and the courage and freedom to fully express and sing ones own true song . As such, the true intent of relationship is the full flowering of each partner. Thus, relationship must be seen as a journey towards self discovery and the path is always through doors of fear. Telihard de Chardin said it best when he wrote ~ "The only right love is that between couples whose passion leads them both, one through the other, to a higher possession of their being."
Authentic relationship begins when both partners realize that their quest will be fulfilled not in any " perfect relationship, " but only when they reunite with their authentic self, which is always trapped within a prison of childhood fears ~ especially Fear of Abandonment, Fear of Intimacy, Fear of Rejection, Fear of Aloneness and finally Fear that Being myself is not enough. This is precisely what I do in my short term therapy ~ I take people through their deepest fears by jump starting their hearts and reconnecting them to the love and joy that is deepest within them. It only takes seven counseling sessions because they are essentially healing themselves by taking responsibility for not only love but for their initial decision to separate from their authentic self ~ in order to survive, stay in control and protect themselves from spiritual pain.
A spiritual relationship, as in that of soul mates, twin flames, and karmic lovers, is two people on a common path to find and celebrate who they really are ~ using the love that exists between them as the vehicle. Such a relationship is not painless for it forces each partner to eventually unconditionally love the other but in so doing ~ each partner perfects themselves.
Part Three Summery
Very few people have the courage to embark on the journey of the heart but those who do are blessed ~ for they will eventually conquer fear, transcend time and space and become a fragment of life's heart in the process.

One last Kabalistic Counsel on Soul Mates
It has been ordained by the highest authority that men and women be attracted to one another. Unfortunately, most of us only recognize the lowest level of sexual attraction, that which is biological. Here, in western society there is something that has come to be known as "love at first sight." This experience is almost entirely biological, with no spiritual element to it whatsoever. Yet, it is this superficial level of love that most people are looking for. This hope for magic is mostly a waste of time. However, this does not mean that there does not exist that which today is referred to as "soul mates."
It must be understood that what today is called a soul mate, i.e., one special person for another special person, is not exactly what the ancient texts speak about, even though it appears that way on the surface. What is made clear in the Kabalistic works, Talmud and the Torah is never deterministic. While relationships are planned to go right, we sometimes steer things wrong, and this is usually through sexual sin. Although Heaven might have ordained for us the perfect match, it is usually we that somehow botch things up through forbidden sexual intercourse. Our future potential for finding the right mate is then best summed up by the rest of what the Talmud in Sotah says, "Matches are as difficult for G-d as was the parting of the Red Sea" (at the Exodus). What this means is that once we mess things up (and I think that most of us qualify for this category) finding the right mate becomes an extraordinary hard job, with only Divine intervention making it happen.
by Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok
There is no doubt that the "compatible helper" [paraphrasing Gen. 2:18] that G-d has intended for a man may assist him in his task. Yet, there is much more to it than that. A single person is unable to complete the rectification that he is to perform in this world. A soul's heavenly source has male and female halves, which are incarnated into the world as a man and a woman. The incarnation of the two does not necessarily occur simultaneously. As a result, only when the man and woman are righteous do they attain the privilege to meet and wed their real soul mate. Consequently, each spouse may only reach spiritual fulfillment and perfection by means of their union, when their lives are conducted with purity.
