Finding my soul mate


I am trying to get married from a long time. Still I am unable to find my soul mate. My marriage is getting delayed for no reason. Can you suggest to me how to overcome this?

Dear Shashi,

It is natural that you want to marry your soul mate.

Instead of worry and fear, begin to relax and trust that the right person will appear in the right time. Meanwhile, practice daily, being happy in yourself, and bring joy to all that you do.

As you radiate happiness, you’ll begin to attract attention from men, and choose the right mate for yourself.

Paramhansa Yogananda wrote a helpful book called:

How to Love and Be Loved.

In this book Yogananda gives a prayer to attract the right partner. For a period of 3-6 months, or as long as needed, at the end of your daily mediation practice repeat this prayer:

“Heavenly Father, bless me
That I may choose my life companion,
According to Thy law
Of perfect soul union.”

In this book, he helps us understand the meaning of soul mate and the difference between human love and divine love.

On a practical level, a person might have the soul qualities that are suitable to your nature, but his appearance might not be so attractive. Therefore, you might reject him, based on his appearance, if all you focus on is his appearance.

Therefore, Yogananda emphasized the importance of daily meditation, to help you tune into your intuition, your inner guidance, so you can make choices based not on reason and the senses, but on your soul feeling, that will help you make the right choice. I recommend that you read this book.

I wish you all the best.
