What is Spiritual Love as Opposed to Romantic Love?
Don’t get this wrong; there can be romantic love experienced within spiritual love, but it is experienced as a different overall love quality. As Dr. Hawkins said, it’s the purpose of eventually loving towards all of life in all of its expressions, regardless.
When one commits to another at higher levels of consciousness like loyalty (360) and faithfulness (365), the lovingness comes naturally at these higher levels. The spiritual love meaning is different and purposeful.
There’s no “shoulding” about being loyal or faithful to another as it’s inherent in these levels of consciousness.
It’s a maturing of the evolution of one’s own consciousness.
What is romantic love as currently perceived in society?
Remember, the world is of lower consciousness in general (50% of the USA calibrates below 200, 85% of the world calibrates below 200)
Here are some things to ask yourself:
Why do you want a romantic relationship?
Are you hoping someone will fulfill a need within you?
Or do you love yourself unconditionally and would like to share that expression with another?
Is being in loving relationships sufficient for you?
Do you feel you “should” be married with children, as an example?
Do you feel, like I did, that if you didn’t meet the one you will marry in college, you’d never get married!?! This was a mass-consciousness belief I held unconsciously…
How would you feel if your significant other ended your relationship? What are you feeling?
How would you feel if you were presented with divorce papers today?
What about an unexpected death?
Your feelings about this will reveal the consciousness level you may be perceived on the topic of love and romantic love in general.
If trauma, fear, and loss are predominant, it would be good to understand romantic love vs. spiritual love.
If relief, joy, and wanting the best for another are predominant, you may be aligned with the spiritual love meaning.
Romantic love has underlying currents of seeking love outside of ourselves. These are signs of unwillingness to be loyal or faithful and feeling hurt or not spiritual love.
If you are “shoulding” yourself about being loyal or faithful to another and don’t really feel like being that way for another because they “don’t deserve it,” don’t judge yourself for feeling the way you feel.
This is simply a sign that there are blocks to spiritual love, loyalty, lovingness, and faith. Those blocks can be removed through spiritual intent, inner work, and surrendering those limitations to love.
I have found it’s easier to find something or someone you can be loyal or faithful to, like a beloved pet or an innocent child. This is a great “starter kit” to opening up to more lovingness within yourself and developing maturity in spiritual love.
Soulmate VS Twin Flame
Swimming around in the minds and hearts of many of us is the romantic notion of soulmates and twin flames. There IS a good reason for this as the theory of both of these is of higher consciousness and holds some significant spiritual truths. Soulmates and Twin Flames calibrate in the 300′s on the Map of Consciousness. This is the level of consciousness in the land of willingness.
It’s commonly understood that soulmates can and usually are relationships beyond just the romantic. The twin flame relationship can be misperceived, depending on the level of consciousness you may be in that type of rare relationship.
The bottom line is that the spiritual love meaning is held at a level of loving regardless. Romantic love is not really born as a necessary part of a spiritually loving relationship. It’s more of an unexpected joy when it shows up. It’s not expected, demanded, or required in mature loving, spiritually-minded relationships that are more committed partnerships than anything else.
I have found that as you release lower-level emotions as they come up, it’s easier and more comfortable to be loving. Spiritual lovingness is a natural consequence of your intention to be this for the world.
