Soulmate Celebration with Arielle Ford and Brian Hilliard

 

Arielle Ford and Brian Hilliard

I’m beyond delighted to be offering you a peek into the world of folks I consider a “Spiritual Power Couple”. Author of The Soulmate Secret, Arielle guides people to create love-of-their life relationships. Brian and Arielle were featured on the ABC special Secrets of Your Mind, as they with direct experience, spoke on the subject of love.

Arielle’s definition of bliss is “A state of feeling loved and at peace with myself, Brian and the world around me. (and a bit of chocolate)” and Brian exclaims with typical enthusiasm: “Internal Goosebumps! Resting in your heart and feeling LOVE from the inside to the outside! Waking up with Arielle feeling completely loved and looking at her each morning as if to gaze upon her for the very first time and have my heart open immediately…..and then breathe in that “feeling” throughout the Day!”

As a way of embodying bliss, Arielle offers: Some days I wake up in bliss, other days I go looking for it.” I’m certain that in many cases, it finds her!

From having read some of Arielle’s work, I was aware of the process she went through to bring Brian into her life, but wondered if there was a particular journey he was on in preparation for meeting her.

He explained: “Every little bit of my life experience prepared me for the Soulmate encounter with Arielle; our devotion for one another, our acceptance for one another, our total unconditional LOVE for one another most likely would not have been co-created without that life preparation which by all accounts was a fun, wild and crazy ride!! And we have strongly committed to continue this amazing journey together and I may add she actually LOVES my imperfections, curiosity of LIFE and non-conforming behavior!! Add some divine timing to the mix and we feel it’s been the perfect elixir for a really groovy and long lasting relationship!”

Curious if there was a particular experience on the auspicious day that had them meeting face to face for the first time, Arielle shared that it “was not a single event. It was the connection of past and future lifetimes together, it was my strong intention to manifest a soulmate, it was fate/destiny/good karma and the blessing of Amma.”, which Brian affirmed: “I would only add that when Amma blessed Arielle, I started to dream about her and a year to the date Arielle received Darshan from Mother she married us in a Hindu ceremony–wild and fun stuff!!”


 

Inquiring what is like to live, work and play with your partner while being quite visible and public, Arielle gave some insight: ” We are blessed to enjoy being together 24/7–we enjoy the same things and enjoy each other and our time with the “public” is actually very limited. Mostly it’s us and our cats.”, as with what I imagine is a brilliant smile, Brian added, “WE do pinch ourselves every morning and feel so grateful our lives crossed when they did and then to be able to spend that kind of quality time together is “icing on the cake!” We are very grateful for what has unfolded and we truly continue to build on that foundation of love, trust, respect and complete devotion to one another.”

They are able to balance high activity level with quiet, restorative time for each as an individual and as a couple. According to Brian.”We early on established boundaries and created our own tools and processes to help us move from “business” mode to “intimacy” mode since we do spend most of the entire day together. Also making sure we have constant and clear communication in terms of our feelings and needs has been crucial to our success–it allows us to “stay in the flow” as much as possible. I would also like to add that we both do our best to maintain our health, eat good food, play outdoors often and integrate beneficial mind-body techniques into our daily ritual.” Arielle expressed : “We protect each others’ privacy and downtime. Sometimes that means Brian has to remind me to slow down and breathe.”

And what is the loud and clear message for which they would like to take a stand?

Arielle shares (for this season): “That big love is possible for any one at any age if you are willing to invest a little time, energy, intention and attention to your love life.”

Brian, raising an imaginary toast: “Cheers” to that Arielle and “Cheers” to infinite Goosebumps and “getting out over your surfboard” as much as possible!”

  How often do you ask yourself  'what if and if only'  questions?  "What if I had chosen a different path, partner, career, home?  Bet I'd be happier if I had," is the frequent litany for many. We get fidgety staying still. We kvetch about how things aren't the way we want them to be, a
