What Is a Soul Mate?
When acclaimed publicist and author Arielle Ford started to date her future husband, Brian Hilliard, something very peculiar happened. One morning she woke up in a rage after having a “past life vision” of a love affair that she and Brian had over 2,000 years ago—an affair that he had ended abruptly to embark on a spiritual journey. But it wasn’t just Ford who peered into their mysterious shared past. Brian simultaneously remembered his past life with Arielle and before she could explain what she had seen, he said, “Don’t worry. I won’t leave you this time.”
This is just one among many outrageous stories that Ford tells in this playful Unbound interview on her new book, The Soulmate Secret: Manifesting the Love of Your Life With the Law of Attraction, which has just been released by Harper One. Joined by EnlightenNext’s Elizabeth Debold and Andrew Cohen, Ford takes us into the mysterious world where we can manifest our dreams—including custom ordering our soul mates. Over the course of their conversation, they explore a wide variety of questions, some serious and some less so, about this very popular topic, including why we might be mysteriously drawn to particular individuals over the course of our lifetimes—and perhaps most importantly, why Ford thinks that in order for men and women to have successful and fulfilling relationships with each other, they need to first have matured to the point where they don’t need anyone else in order to feel complete.
