Where are my 144 soul mates?

QUESTION: Masters I am wondering where the 144 souls from my soul group are. I think my mother and my husband may be two of them but I really would love to meet more of them. Are they in a foreign country? Sometimes I feel they are. I keep a deep and strong desire of moving out of Brazil to this specific foreign country since I was a little girl. Is this a desire related to life lessons I chose or is it just my ego mind dreaming about something unrealistic? Melinda, Brazil

ANSWER: One’s soul mates do comprise a group of 144 total souls. They are the 72 souls individualized immediately before you and the 72 who came along immediately after you. A soul is never in a physical body at the same time as the entirety of the other 143 souls. During all the lives you live on Earth you share the plane with only about two dozen of your soul mates, and then not always in the same location.

Soul mates who share the lifetime with you are like siblings: Some have the same plans as you, and others want nothing to do with you because they are on their own journeys. A soul’s purpose for coming into the physical is not to “vacation” with friends but rather to work on understanding the lessons they chose and a realization of who they are as a soul.

While it is true that difficult life lessons frequently involve having made contracts with one of your soul mates to ensure they get carried out, you may also have chosen a soul who just happened to plan to be in the same place at the right time for your lesson to be accomplished.

Your mother is a soul mate but your husband is not. Meeting soul mates does not help you in your life’s challenges, so don’t spend so much time consumed with the idea.

Souls sometimes find themselves in a place that does not totally resonate with their physical body and they are drawn to a different energy. In your case, this is because you have spent a number of different lives in that other country. To follow up on those yearnings is part of a life lesson of examining what a move will mean in your life. You have the freedom to choose your experiences and how they play out.
