Beloved Partnership is a new(actually, original) paradigm of intimate human relationships that moves beyond what we have most commonly experienced in our lifetimes (romantic love, convenience or co-dependency) and toward interdependency and Trinitarian co-creation. In today’s blog, I explore Beloved Partnership and how we might recognize its call in our lives.

Beloved Partnership – Not the same as soulmates or twin flames
As we have been ascending to greet our divine nature and allowing the full descent of our divine nature into our human form, there has been much talk about the question of soulmates, twin flames, etc. To begin this topic, I feel it is necessary to acknowledge that the Beloved Partnership differs in many regards from what we have come to understand about soulmates or twin flames. There are many experts on these two topics and I will permit their teachings to speak for themselves. While there are no hard and fast lines between soulmates, twin flames or Beloved Partnerships and all may share similar characteristics, in my experience Beloved Partnerships are markedly different.
Beloved Partnership/True One
The Beloved Partnership is what I describe at length in my recent novel, Song of the Beloved – the Gospel According to Mary Magdalene. I have also seen a close approximation to what I have come to understand about Beloved Partnership in what Solara refers to as our “True One.” By whatever name you call it, Beloved Partnership is unlike anything we have experienced in our lifetimes (there are some who have experienced this, but up until this time, this has been a rarity). While our fairytales and myths (including most Hollywood movies) hint at Beloved Partnership, they have only just skimmed the surface of the depth of love promised in these kinds of relationships. Unlike the romantic/co-dependent love favored in myth and fairytale (looking for the person outside of us who will complete us), Beloved Partnership is only possible when two COMPLETE individuals come together in a loving and intimate partnership (note: some relationships are able to evolve into a Beloved Partnership if this is the call of the relationship and if each individual works toward achieving this level of intimacy). Unlike soulmate relationships which are often platonic, Beloved Partnership is a love that includes intimacy, passion and a deep and abiding romantic love that grows beyond eros to include filios, pragma and agape. Also unlike most romantic relationships that we simply fall into (falling in love), Beloved Partnerships begin with a call – a call that is as deep as it is ancient – calling us back (ultimately) to the original nature and vision for human love.
Call of the Beloved
The call of the Beloved begins with just this – a call. For some, this call arrives in a dream. For others, it shows up in a meditative vision. For all, the call of the Beloved is experienced as a DEEP knowing – a knowing that abides in spite of all arguments against it or doubt around its truth. One just KNOWS there is someone they are supposed to be with (remember, this is not a co-dependent drive, seeking outside of us for something to fill the emptiness inside….it is a KNOWING of an ancient and divinely ordained truth) and they won’t stop until that relationship is realized. Ultimately, the call of the Beloved arises out of the imprint of the Soul. The Soul is the part of us that knows our highest truth, our path, our mission, our purpose in this world and compels us to fulfill this purpose. If part of that mission is Beloved Partnership, the Soul lets us know this and drives us to seek it out. Faith is the energy that propels this search and keeps us on the path until it is fulfilled. It is also faith that will not allow us to settle for anything less than what the Soul knows, and if we try to satisfy that call with something less than the true Beloved Partner, our Soul will pull the rug out from beneath our feet or kick our butts to prevent us from accepting anything other than the Beloved Partner. And if we have settled, we won’t be happy in the settling as the Soul will continue to hound us until we are united with the Beloved Partnership we were meant to experience in this life.
