Planet Earth took a big hit with the loss of Michael Jackson. So much of his music was the soundtrack for various times in my life that it’s hard to comprehend that he’s gone. As I watched the news and the replays of some of his amazing performances, I began to wonder, “who was Michael Jackson’s soulmate?”
Many of you already know that I believe we get more than one soulmate in a lifetime and that we bring in soulmates of many different flavors: romantic, friendship, business partners, children, pets and more. My definition of a soulmate is simply this: It’s someone you can completely be yourself with. Someone whom you love unconditionally and they love you unconditionally. And, when you look into their eyes you have the experience of being at home.
In the book EAT PRAY LOVE, Elizabeth Gilbert defines a soulmate this way: “People think a soulmate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soulmate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. Soulmates come into your life just to reveal another level of yourself to you, and then they leave.” (thanks Moira for this reminder)
I put the question, ‘Who was Michael Jackson’s soulmate?’ on my Facebook page and here are some of the responses that came back: Elizabeth Taylor (the most popular response), Deepak Chopra, Macaulay Caulkin, Lisa Marie Presley, his music, Diana Ross, Liza Minelli, Donna Summer, Bubbles (his pet chimpanzee) and his children. Only Michael can say who his soulmates in life were but I think his untimely passing is a strong reminder of just how precious life is. Whether or not you have manifested your romantic soulmate, you can spend time everyday sharing your love with the friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and strangers in your life. And finally, be sure to share that big heart full of love you possess on yourself! Every time you pass a mirror, blow yourself a kiss and say out loud, “I love you and you look marvelous!”
Wishing you love, laughter and Magical Kisses,
