Why did my love die?

QUESTION: Masters I recently lost the love of my life to murder. Although I am aware that we choose the moment of our death I find it hard to understand why I would experience a love as unconditional as the love he gave me; only for it to be snatched away. I feel as though I am being punished. I have been plagued with suicidal thoughts in hopes that I will see my love again. I asked the universe for him, envisioned him before I met him. I don’t understand why he had to go when we planned a life together. I find it hard to believe that I will experience that love again, as if I’ve lost my chance. What lessons are to be learned from losing great love? ~Adela, England

ANSWER: When your beloved leaves before you, it begins a soul-searching examination about why things changed so drastically – which is the process you are enduring at this time. Souls come to Earth to learn about themselves, and this can only be done by experiencing the negativity that opposes unconditional love.

This man was a soul mate of yours who has shared many lives with you and with whom you made a contract before this life for you to experience gut-wrenching emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical pain. The idea was for you to tap into the internal strength provided by the soul energy that is your essence. It is in recognizing that you are, first and foremost, a soul – a piece of Source energy that is unconditional love itself – that you complete your reason for leaving Home and coming into the duality of Earth.

Your soul mate and you have existed together for millennia and will do so for eternity in your energetic forms. He has not left you, as he is watching over you and sending you love energy to work through this struggle. All the plans you made with your physical, ego-based, third-dimensional minds were for the purpose of setting the stage for your time without his physical presence.

The love that is the most important for you to feel right now is the love of self. You have chosen this path as a way to better understand the concept of physical and emotional love. To accept that fact is to have love for the person you are, the one who has the strength to continue and to learn more before returning Home to reunite with your beloved and all your other soul mates.
