Right before Steve Jobs passed away, he made a very special but somewhat strange request: that everyone who attended his funeral service receive a brown box as a farewell gift.
Inside the box was something most people never would have guessed…
A copy of Paramahansa Yoganandya’s Autobiography of a Yogi.
Job’s last wish for the world was for everyone to read about a man who I believe was one of the world’s greatest spiritual teachers. A man whose writings and life work not only inspired Steve Jobs to have the courage to follow his heart, but continues to inspire thousands even today.
Yogananda’s core message, one he taught and fully embodied, was “Self Realization” or the process of manifesting your highest possibility or potential in this lifetime.
And when it comes to realizing the highest possibility for a romantic relationship, Paramahansa Yogananda offers us very powerful and sound advice about manifesting Soulmate love.
What Paramahansa Yogananda Said About Manifesting Soulmate Love
In his book, Spiritual Relationships, Yogananda says that we are like magnets, attracting potential partners depending on our level of attraction.
He says, “You cannot attract a spiritual soul through animal magnetism. If you attract a person by spiritual magnetism, you will meet your soul companion.”
What he’s basically saying is that if you want to attract your soulmate, you need to draw them towards you using your spiritual or love-based energy instead of your physical or mental energy.
And the way to access this spiritual, love-based energy or frequency is through your heart. This is the essence of what I teach in greater detail in my introductory program, Manifesting Soulmate Love, and the more advanced, The Path to Soulmate Love.
Yogananda’s Affirmation to Attract a Soul Mate
In order to attract a true soul partnership, Paramhansa Yogananda suggests we say the following affirmation or prayer:
Heavenly Father, bless me that I choose my life companion according to Thy Law of Perfect Soul Union.
According to Yogananda, this affirmation is best practiced just after meditation. You can say it loudly a few times, then more softly, then whispering, then mentally, then subconsciously, and finally superconsciously. Work with this affirmation for at least six months, with deep faith.
If you have established a real connection with God through meditation and continuous affirmation of this prayer request, you will find a suitable companion; or, if you have been drawn toward one who is fundamentally inharmonious, the Divine will bring about circumstances that will prevent you from making a wrong choice.
The “Law of Perfect Soul Union” I believe is a reference to the magnetic attraction of mutually supportive or complementary spiritual qualities that can exists between two people. It’s also a reference to being in perfect harmony with the Divine Order or God’s plan for your life.
If you want to, you can modify it and add the word harmony to it so that it reads:
Heavenly Father, bless me that I choose my life companion according to Thy Law of Perfect Soul Union in Harmony with your Divine Plan.
And, if you are already partnered or married, you can modify it in this other way:
Heavenly Father, Bless me that I may live with my life companion (you can also add the names of your family and close friends) according to Thy Divine Laws of Perfect Soul Union in Harmony with your Divine Plan.
Say this prayer with an open heart or a heart fully vibrating the energy of love and appreciation, and you’ll be sending out a powerful signal to the Divine that you’re ready to manifest a higher possibility for your love life.
And just like Steve Jobs recommended when he said, “follow your heart” because “it somehow already knows what you want to become”, it will be through your heart that the Divine will guide you along the path of manifesting Soulmate love.
