20 Questions for a Spiritually Compatible Relationship
We received an email from Naini Duggal, who is launching a new matchmaking website for spiritually-minded singles called MatchMySpirit.com. We logged in and were intrigued by the questions used to create a personal profile, so we asked how the site came about. Duggal wrote:
“My own path is self-realization fellowship (SRF), and I have been deeply practicing the teachings for a long time. Over the years, I have observed that most spiritual people find it very difficult to find a partner who shares the same vibration. So one day, after a deep meditation, I knew that I had to start this website. After a year of research with spiritual organizations, therapists, and psychologists, my partners and I developed these questions based on practical and spiritual principles. The site is free for now. Most proceeds will be going to children’s charities and orphanages. MatchMySpirit is a labor of love.”
Duggal graciously agreed to share the questions, which can be the basis for self-reflection, an intimate weekend with a new relationship, or, of course, to find the person of your dreams.

Someone to Watch Over Me is a sweet little gift for connecting with one's inner spirit, for giving voice to one's inner being, and for connecting one's essence with Guardian Protectors or Guides. Simple and inviting enough for children, lucid enough for adults...a precious offering."
