In her desperation to be loved by Rahul, Maaya travels into her several past lives, encounters herself as love, as sadness, as betrayal, as grief, as loss, as failure and yet realizes that all these were mere experiences transient in nature and they only led her to loving herself & believing in herself even more in this moment.
Minal, as a past life therapist & mentor has held the hand of many, to allow their journey within, to explore the explored dimensions of their being, to understand how the soul operates out of human consciousness and how relationships, both good & bad, play a vital role in learning our lessons. All relationships are important but this book is focused on how the relationship with a twin-soul can allow us to reveal deep secrets or mysteries of the universe to live a more powerful or rather magical existence.
Love is the one pursuit that each soul carries knowingly or unknowingly and it’s one experience that can stretch to the depth of one’s awareness & yet seem to bring a longing for more or a need to hold-on to the experience. Whenever love knocks the door of the soul, it is welcome with all the warmth and yet, what it brings along & how it shows us our fears and our inability to be unconditional about it decides how long it stays and how long it gives us joy. Love is the one emotion that has the ability to take us to the highs of ecstasy and the lows of grief in a few moments and many times through the same people. When it stays, it gives is peace, joy & stability and when it leaves, we experience grief, blame, anger & resentment or loss. We want to hold-on to every moment of love because we do not trust it to stay forever, because we fear losing it. This book is a deep understanding of the cycle of love, of how it can impact one’s life & how one can transform their experiences of loss & failure in love to what empowers them with love itself.
