Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced. The deepest soul connection I have ever had was with a friend named Anne. We met on a Pagan forum back in 2003. We hit it off right away, shared concerns and have developed a wonderful relationship. Anne lives in South Africa while I live in Australia. We gave each other nicknames: King and Queen. We have shared ups and downs in our lives and have helped each other out the best way we can. It wasn’t until 2011, after my breakup with my partner of 4 and a half years, that I decided to visit her and her family. It was such a wonderful experience to see such a beautiful soul face to face.

Describe one of the most soul-opening moments of your life. This happened just recently on the 31st of July. The whole day I was so happy and very uplifted for no apparent reason. I felt like I was exploding with love and light and that light shone through when I spoke to some people on Facebook, helping a couple out.

Tell us about when you feel your most soulful. When I am chatting with wonderful like-minded people on Facebook, handling and connecting to various crystals and stones, and reading inspiring quotes from people like Dr Wayne Dyer, Cari L Murphy, Doreen Virtue just to name a few. Listening to relaxing meditation music and upbeat dance music. Listening to uplifting songs like Invincible, by Xelle, Firework, by Katy Perry, I’ll Find a Way and Breathe Life, both by Brian Kent. Learning how to read and use Angel oracle cards.

What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has? Mutual unconditional love for one another. To be connected as one, so to speak. Mutual trust and complete honesty. To do the very best you can for one another whenever possible.

What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? I feel and believe my soul’s purpose is to uplift others and encourage them to feel positive about themselves by use of crystals and affirmations. To help others feel comfortable about themselves. Accept themselves as children of the light. To let others know that love is to be given, received, accepted and shared unconditionally. The more I am inspired by others, the more I aspire to inspire and nurture the light within others and within myself. To be yourself as long as being yourself is positive and harms no one in any way. I receive light which flows within me and radiates out.
