Many of you who are on your enlightenment journey feel you need a partner who is spiritual. Let us tell you this is not always the case.
There are a great many souls on the planet who do not practice spirituality but who do embody the traits spirituality helps foster and grow – love, compassion, empathy, truth, and transparency. The greatest indicator of soul attainment is not necessarily spiritual practice, but rather the person’s level of integrity and the embodiment of those higher traits.
Having a partner who is not necessarily spiritual can be of great assistance to you and your journey. They have the job of anchoring physical presence. This, combined with your spiritual presence, creates balance within the whole of the relationship. In many cases, the non-spiritual partner was the more spiritual one in other life expressions with you. It may be that this time around they are stepping back from that role in order to allow you the opportunity to take the lead.
When you are looking at your potential partners it is wise to look at how they contribute to the balance of the whole, and if they embody the traits you admire and respect. Kindness, love, acceptance, and support are the essence of what you really seek, and that can show up for you in many, many forms. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
