By Sue Minns
The subject of soulmates is perennially popular but the idea of "finding your soulmate" has always focused predominantly on the belief that once you've found each other, you will live happily ever after. Such a meeting can bring untold opportunities - the chance to heal wounds and resolve 'unfinished business' from past lives - as well as the soul growth and understanding to be had from liaisons which may be more difficult, but which are just as powerful and important. Some soulmates come into our lives to give us wake-up calls and the opportunity to see things differently.Sue Minns discusses the nature of the soul, explaining what exactly a soulmate is - and how to recognise one - as well as why they come into our lives when they do. She reveals how finding a soulmate can be not only an intense and unforgettable experience in its own right, but also a step on the path to opening your heart and mind, changing the way you see the world, and leading you towards a partner who is truly right for you.

By Michal Levin
A former BBC Newsnight journalist and management consultant, Michal Levin's life changed when she became troubled by an incomprehensible inner disquiet. She left her career and a new - spirit - world opened when she took up meditation. Over a period of months, she began to accept that she was a healer, an intuitive and a teacher. She was even able to diagnose her own near-fatal brain tumour, despite doctors' dismissals, and so save her life. Michal encounters many people in her teachings with the same 'ache' in their lives. Spiritual Intelligence addresses that increasing number who feel - despite money, success, education, even fame - that there is a missing element. It teaches us how to go on a personal journey - to embrace spirituality, develop intuition and bring it into our everyday lives for ultimate fulfilment.
