In Destiny of Souls (see previous post), Dr. Newton explains the difference between soul relationships. He wrote that the primary soul mate is that soul with whom we have the closest affinity, our "closely bonded partner." He writes, "No other soul is more important to us than a primary soulmate and when my subjects describe lives with these souls as their mates most will say their existence is enriched beyond measure."
Another kind of soul relationship is that of companion soulmates. These are members of our primary cluster group, who came in existence together and often reincarnate together. They can be friends, parents, siblings, sons or daughters, or other close relationships. Dr. Newton writes, "Within this cluster group there is usually an inner circle of souls who are especially close to us, and they play important support roles in our lives and we do the same thing for them." While the number varies for each soul, there are typically three to five souls in this category.
Finally, there are affiliated souls, which Dr. Newton defines as the classification of souls which pertains "to members of secondary groups outside our own primary cluster but located in the same general spiritual vicinity." There could be as many as one thousand souls or more in this group. Often our parents come from an affiliated soul group.
Where do Twin Souls fit in to all this? More on that to come.
