What Is a True Love Relationship?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 22, 2013

FikerBA True Love relationship is based on both partners allowing this inner development of both and their relationship with another to happen. Yes, this means work! And it’s challenging because it forces us to let go of all our safety programs, ego-illusions, our imbalances, incongruences and most importantly – our control patterns!

In a True Love relationship there is no need for inferiority or superiority – there is no need for doing something to ‘keep’ the other – and there is no space for control or manipulation. This is the reason why we need to be clear and strong within ourselves first; why we need to love ourselves unconditionally and be whole within, so that we are open to resonate with others, who are also aligned to True Love.

What is a Twin Soul Relationship?

Being aligned to the resonance of True Love within and the kind of relationship that can develop out of this resonance then becomes our key to opening up our Twin Soul field. Twin Souls are not to be confused with soul-mates. Soul-Mates are mutual karmic partners to help us heal our karmic patterns. Twin Souls are the total reflection of our True Selves and provide a higher purpose for the evolution of our consciousness. A Twin Soul resonates with us on a truth level even more challenging than a True Love. Twin Soul relationships leave nothing hidden, abandoned or denied. Do you think you are ready for this kind of relationship?

TwinSoul work, the process of self-transformation and evolution of our vibratory rate also has nothing to do with becoming perfect. This journey isn’t about becoming perfect – it’s about improving, enhancing, unfolding, expanding and creating – it doesn’t end here, it begins here!

Are we ready for a True Love relationship?

If we are not willing to let go of our last ego illusions, for example the search for ‘eternal foreverness’ or the idea of a perfect relationship, a relationship and life based on truth, inner love and heart-connection isn’t for us! We will simply not be congruent enough; we will lack maturity and strength to stand in a frequency free of patterns and programs, expectations, manipulations and control; and we will continually gravitate out of our heart-field and back into disharmony and pain. This is why we all have homework to do.

If we are still struggling with letting go our mental and emotional programs, our defensive reactivity and ego/shadow-based perception, we are not ready for a True Love or TwinSoul relationship either. Instead we will continue making compromises or allowing our inner integrity to be violated; we will still pretend everything is okay when it’s not; we will spend more energy trying to maintain the way things are than allowing growth; and we will probably continue to struggle with our inner connection and balance of masculinity & femininity.

There is no judgment in these statements. It our right to choose, but we cannot feed our illusion of the perfect relationship within us if we are not able to be truly in love ourselves. Being on this journey comes with a price – TRUTH.

Looking one way and walking another can be a very painful path!

You know that when you’re ready, when the pain of staying where we are at is worse than the pain of changing.

You are ready, when you aren’t afraid of facing and transcending your limitations; when you found your path to your heart and Inner Divine; when you know how to become one with your heart and learned how to surrender our thoughts and emotions to GRACE/Divine/Source/your inner higher power.

You are ready for a True Love relationship when you can feel True Love inside and know what it feels like to be truly connected with yourselves.

This process never ends, but we will have learned to overcome our fears of the unknown, go by trial and error and embrace experimenting, making mistakes and making corrections until we find the way for ourselves to be True to who we really are – until we find a way to love ourselves unconditionally and we can see this in the other too.

True Love and Twin Soul Work

I am often asked what it is that we can do to specifically prepare for a True Love/Twin Soul relationship. If you are willing to do True Love and Twin Soul work, here some tips as to what matters for this kind of resonance:

In order to be prepared for a True Love Relationship or Twin Soul Re-Unification we really need to have an understanding of True, unconditional Love within us first. For this understanding we need to be able to discern relationship patterns, inner masculine & feminine energies and inner programs (including our inner child and past & karmic patterns). We need to be absolutely clear that we understand, that the role of the other is not to make us feel whole or complete but to reflect us.

We need to know that it’s our responsibility to become whole within, and to acknowledge and honor our inner Divinity. This then prepares the way for our partner to recognize Divinity within us (and vice versa) – and the great gift of mutual and synergetic growth.

We also need to be able to stand our ground, whether in low or high frequency fields (TWIN SOUL energy within itself is a very high frequency field and instantly removes energetic dissonances by showing them.) Being with our Twin Soul means to able to allow being in this field without constantly getting fried by our expectations, romanticism, thought patterns, role models and other mental/emotional programs (push-pull).

We need to have a feeling for what it feels like to be true to ourselves, congruent and connected, without bashing or making ourselves, others or our relationship special. We need to know our True Self and understand the purpose of our eternal existence as a Soul with a body, so that we feel no need for separation pains.

And lastly, we need to be willing to accept the gift of growth. TwinSoul energy is the unconditional mirror of True Love – the gift of reflection, harmony and the evenflow of energy exchange and creation.


This all may sound like a lot, but don’t mistake this having to be at a ‘certain level’ to do this work – it’s the dedication it takes to get there that qualifies us for a True Love/Twin Soul relationship.

True Love and Twin Soul work is not based on a romantic idea; on the contrary, it shatters it and motivates us to go into a deeper level of self-work, self-understanding, self-responsibility, which can only resonate with truth and inner congruence.

The planetary evolution of consciousness is causing our overall energy field to speed up – high vibratory fields are becoming stronger and the collective more permeable. Allow this momentum to carry you into the next vibratory level of your journey – trust in your heart and your True Self and the beauty of your soul. Sooner or later you will find yourself surrounded by humans, circumstances and a relationship with the same resonance.

Now is the time to determine the course of your relationships – with yourself and everyone else!

Etete: One of Washington’s 10 Best Restaurants

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 22, 2013

EthioCuisine2Politics and power brokers make for some buzzy gossip – and heady prices – at top restaurants. But thanks to the diversity of people who call the United States capital home, the D.C. dining scene is also a melting pot of eclectic flavours and international cuisines. From high-end to humble, there are some must-taste dishes, tastes and places to try.


D.C. is known for authentic offerings of Ethiopian cuisine. You won’t do better than this room in the district’s Little Ethiopia neighbourhood. Get the spicy house specialty, the tikul (marinated spiced ground beef), along with a vegetarian platter full of perfectly seasoned stewed lentils, peas, greens and string beans. Then dig in, mopping up every last bit with the spongy, slightly sour injera bread.

Hitchhiking Virus Confirms Saga of Ancient Human Migration

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 22, 2013

AHominider19v study of the full genetic code of a common human virus offers a dramatic confirmation of the “out-of-Africa” pattern of human migration, which had previously been documented by anthropologists and studies of the human genome.

The virus under study, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), usually causes nothing more severe than cold sores around the mouth, says Curtis Brandt, a professor of medical microbiology and ophthalmology at UW-Madison. Brandt is senior author of the study, now online in the journal PLOS ONE.

When Brandt and co-authors Aaron Kolb and Cécile Ané compared 31 strains of HSV-1 collected in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia, “the result was fairly stunning,” says Brandt.

“The viral strains sort exactly as you would predict based on sequencing of human genomes. We found that all of the African isolates cluster together, all the virus from the Far East, Korea, Japan, China clustered together, all the viruses in Europe and America, with one exception, clustered together,” he says.

“What we found follows exactly what the anthropologists have told us, and the molecular geneticists who have analyzed the human genome have told us, about where humans originated and how they spread across the planet,” said Curtis Brandt
