Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced. The deepest soul connection I’ve experienced is with – myself! Once I understood “the three selves,” and how to integrate the mind/body/spirit or conscious/subconscious/superconscious, I was able to find much more meaning in my life. From that moment of “integrated alignment,” so many things opened up for me, it changed everything! It happened as I was writing my first book Five Reasons Why Bad Things Happen: How to Turn Tragedies Into Triumph, which I wrote during a particularly difficult time in my life.
Describe one of the most soul-opening moments of your life. This might sound crazy, but during a meditation I was told what my “job” is on “the other side.” Yes – we have jobs over/up there! It blew my mind – and changed everything. Weirdly, I never told anyone what it was, until years later a “soulmate friend” came up to me and said, “You do X on the other side” and I said, “Yes, that’s right – how did you know?” It’s not like anyone could’ve guessed! Wild!
When do you feel your most soulful? Definitely when I’m creating or writing. It’s pure bliss to connect with the highest levels of divine inspiration and know that what I’m working on is divinely guided with meaning and purpose!
What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has? I define a soulmate as “someone you’ve known in a previous existence who you were destined to meet.” What that means is that before this lifetime, when planning your life, you and the other person had an agreement or contract to connect and learn. I agree with author Richard Bach’s assessment that sometimes these relationships can be the most difficult and challenging! Yet also the most rewarding, especially if both souls are at a high evolutionary level and connected with their own soul(s).
What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? I know it sounds trite, but my mission (for myself personally and for my businesses and writing) is to change the world in a fun and rewarding way. I have a strong, clear vision of “the other side” – I even wrote a children’s book about it.
One of the verses says,
It’s the place where we plan who we’ll be with and when
We pick out our names like Sara or Ben.
Another verse says,
We decide on our lessons, the paths we will take
Awards we might go for and mistakes we might make
The ultimate message – and purpose – is Love.
I’d like to share my novels with you. Like the Celestine Prophecy, fiction can sometimes deliver a message in a unique and captivating way. The tagline for my books is, “Lose yourself in the fiction…find yourself in the truth.” My novels – for adults only! – are about soulmate relationships and past lives, with a lovely theme of forgiveness and understanding. They’re also intimate and romantic! Find me on Twitter @Brownelllandrum or Brownell Landrum on Facebook, or complete the contact form on my website, www.DUETstories.com, and let me know how to send you my books, for free! I really just want to “share the love” and touch people’s lives with my writing.
Thank you, Brownell, for sharing a little about you and your work. ~Mali & Joe, authors of The Soulmate Experience: A Practical Guide to Creating Extraordinary Relationships, 52 Prescriptions for Happiness, and the upcoming book The Soulmate Lover, and creators of Mantras for Making Love
