"My heart finds music here with which my soul can dance."

These words from "soul poet" Sid Hutter grace the cover of The Soulmate Experience. Below he shares his experiences with the thriving Facebook community of the same name (as well as a couple of images taken with his poet's eye). Learn more about Sid here

The only memory I have of my 'introduction' to this site named The Soulmate Experience is that I felt as if I was introduced by some form of 'Divine Intervention', for I cannot offer any other explanation for my discovery because I was not consciously searching for a cyber-site about soulmate experiences. But find it I did, or it found me, whichever the case may be, and almost instantly I willing became a part of the congregation and have been introduced to souls not only on this continent, but from Australia to the Philippines.

So many souls have gathered here since that time, which was before Joe & Mali's inspiring book of the same name, and many have encouraged and inspired me as well as others with encouraging quotes and original writings and inspired us with their talents in other art forms.

Many have 'emptied their soul' to the world of unknown souls that come here in an effort to describe and discover their yearning to have a soulmate experience. And while I am aware of the 'type' of experience most are in search of, I've most often expressed that opportunities for many soulmate experiences are often overlooked because someone is only searching for that "One." I truly believe that Soulmate Experiences can be brief encounters as well as those of the lifelong kind—and they are not limited to only lovers; but our souls have to be open to recognize them when they present themselves.

Many people who visit this site have asked the question, "What is a soulmate?" and many people have defined it as they believed it to be, and while the soulmate experience may have some similarities in its definition, it is also unique to each experience and each individual.

With that being said, I wish to offer a 'definition' of a Soulmate that is taken from the book eat, pray, love by Elizabeth Gilbert. This definition best describes the type of Soulmate I aspire, I yearn to be. I hope that someday I might be described as having been this definition of a Soulmate to others.

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so out of control that you have to transform your life.”
