July 9-August 5, 2014
How many times have you hard someone say—“I want to find my soul mate” or “He (or she) is my true soul mate.” Perhaps you’ve held that secret desire deep in your own soul. For each of us, there is a yearning to find that one person that we believe is attached to us on a soul level. Unfortunately, people mistakenly believe that a soul mate is always a romantic partner. Nothing could be further from the truth.
So if not always a romantic partner, then who are your soul mates? Souls take on many different relationships with each other over multiple lifetimes so there are numerous possibilities for how we match-up with each other in any given life. Your “soul mate” could be your mother or daughter; your brother or sister; your father or son; your niece or nephew; your uncle or aunt; your close friend or business associate; your teacher or student; and of course, your romantic partner. Soul mates have been together for centuries, both in bodies and in spirit, so they are in sync with each other on every level. Do you have someone in your life that you can communicate without saying a word? That’s a soul mate.
This four-week eGroup will look at what Edgar Cayce had to say on the subject of soul mates and twin souls and the difference between the two; whether soul mates are helpers or hinderers; using the Akashic Records to identify soul mates; how soul writing is a tool to uncover soul mates; your pre-life planning session, what lessons you signed up for and the souls who agreed to join you; soul mates among family and friends; and finding the great love of your life.

What's an e-Group?
Your A.R.E. eGroup will meet on an Internet discussion board. This discussion board has been created especially for A.R.E. by BulletinBoards.com, a secure Internet site that makes learning online interactive and easy. In Internet terms, your eGroup is called a "discussion board", a virtual meeting room where you will join with other like-minded people and your mentor, Joanne DiMaggio, in an interactive discussion on Soul Mates: Understanding Relationships Through Time.
In the virtual meeting room, you will have access to the written and audio/video materials prepared for you by Joanne. Every Wednesday, she will post a lesson along with exercises for you to practice during the week. Posting is very similar to sending an e-mail, except that all the e-mails are viewed within your virtual meeting room. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the site for Joanne and the other participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by Joanne to individuals.
Once you register for your A.R.E. eGroup, we will send you an e-mail from eGroups@edgarcayce.org detailing how to access and navigate our discussion board for the eGroup Soul Mates: Understanding Relationships Through Time. Then, you're in! You will be able to visit your eGroup any time you desire. The meeting room is accessible 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week and you may participate at your convenience from anywhere in the world. There are no specified times that you have to be in the room. You decide when and how often you wish to participate.
