1998, a year after I had divorced my ex-wife of seventeen years, I was sitting
in my livingroom having a one-sided conversation with the Universe. Not being
satisfied with my situation at that time, I decided to ask the Universe for what
I wanted and felt that I deserved.
request was for my actual soulmate. I asked for a playful woman that would bring
me joy, that I imagined as an easy to look at girl-next-door type, thinking of
Sandra Bullock as a mental image. It was the 'actual soulmate' and the loving
situation that would have to be part of that that was the important part.
I knew that one would need to leave the picture and nature of this request as
'pure' as possible. God needs plenty of room to do THE work properly and would
certainly frown upon some specific detailed thing. For what could I possibly
know about this Soulmate that I was requesting?
During the last week of that year, I got to thinking about the Millennium event
that was now one year away. I felt a need to BE somewhere important and
spiritually significant to experience the Millennium Moment. This would not
happen again for a thousand years. What place would be spiritually significant?
There had been a 'pulling' from Matchu Pitchu, Peru for many years. It felt
right. After several days of searching the internet for a way to be at Matchu
Pitchu on THE moment, I found a new age spiritually oriented travel group
offering exactly what I wanted and immediately signed up.
I spent 1999 preparing for this trip. Get a digital camera. Read up on South
America and the Indian Shamanic practices indigenous to Peru. This would be a
trip of spiritual discovery.
On the last night of 1999, we were camped in tents alongside the Uribamba river
at the base of Matchu Pitchu. About half the group of about twenty people had
come from Europe, mostly Germans. The travel group included it's own Shaman, who
offered a special drink that he had prepared to those among us that wished to
partake. Most of us did, during a wonderful Shamanic ritual.
It was a wild night with Peruvian soldiers shooting off firework rockets from
the top of Matchu Pitchu. One of the Germans came over and asked the group I was
with if we had seen the space ship? The whole night was spent walking among the
little groups and talking around the many candles that had been placed around
the grass area our camp was set up in. One joyful couple of American Indian
beliefs kind of adopted me that night, believing that that was part of their
reason for being on this trip. Amazing night!
The next three days were spent exploring Matchu Pitchu. Then, it was back to
Cuzco and then on to Lake Titicaca. Many ruins and sacred sites were visited.
'Special people' were noticed among the travel group. Those that were here to
learn from the Shaman. We were invited to small outings with the Shaman where a
very special bonding occurred among us.
On the last day in Peru, at Lake Titicaca, we were given an opportunity to meet
with a Quetchen Indian woman who would read coca leaves and answer any questions
that we might have.
I asked her what would become of the relationship I was beginning to establish
with an interesting spiritual woman I had met online? Her answer was that this
would be short term. Then, without asking a question she said that I would be
left with a bill. At the time, I thought that that must be my ex-wife who owed
me some money.
When would my Soulmate appear? "Not long." I asked again, looking for a better
answer. The answer was again "not long" but accompanied by information that this
would be long term.
What is my kharma like? Good or bad? Her answer was "no kharma." It doesn't get
any better than that!
When I returned home, the woman I had met online flew to California to visit. A
few weeks later she moved in with me. She taught me how to use a crystal to ask
questions from your higher self and the Universe. Many questions were asked. The
most significant answer that I received was that my Soulmate was due to arrive
in like April-May 2001. Several months later, she moved out without repaying me
for a significant loan that I had given her to start a massage therapy business
which failed. Hmm ... What had that Quetchen Indian woman said?
Then, I finally sold the motorhome that my ex-wife was required to share the
monetary loss on. She stiffed me. What had that Quetchen Indian woman said?
the first part of May, 2001, I met my Soulmate when she asked me if I would show
her how to play pool. Later, when we had gotten into our relationship, she was
playing around with numbers (numerology) when we were out playing pool and
pointed out to me that guess what? If you read my birthdate (10-5-50) backwards
it's 5-5-01, which is the day we met!
One day at my house, we were going through some old stuff of mine
and I found a sketch of a woman's face in profile that I had done in
Viet Nam. I had drawn what I thought the perfect woman would look
like. We both looked at each other and she pointed out that I had
drawn her. She matched the picture perfectly!
The Soulmate that I had asked the Universe for had certainly
arrived! And she is way beyond anything I could or would have asked
for on my own. She is seventeen years my junior, Barbie doll
gorgeous, and makes me laugh frequently because she is so playful.
Her parents are nobody knows how rich and way cool. They bought our
current six acre wooded property with huge Victorian house, cash.
I'm paying them back for half.
Boy, am I glad that I didn't ask for specifics!

I created this image in Photoshop.
To me, it expresses several things: the universe, the soul's divine source, the
lightning like electricity that I feel in the presence of my Soulmate, and the
saffire blue color that we are both drawn to so strongly
