There are many misconceptions out there about what a soulmate really is. Of course, there is no right or wrong. But I have come to understand soulmates as being entirely different as to what you hear about in the movies.
Soulmates are just that, they are mates of your soul. They share a similar energy to you and perhaps come into this world with a similar purpose.
I believe soulmates come together to help remind each other of this purpose. I believe soulmates come together to help awaken each other and remind each other of who they really are.
Essentially, encountering a soulmate can help to awaken and stir things from within so you can reconnect with your soul essence.
Soulmates don’t have to be romantic but very often they are. This is due to the strong attraction that is felt when connecting with a soulmate.
Soulmates also don’t have to be forever. Often once the lesson is learned and the soul has been awakened, soulmates can move on.
This may be very different to what you have heard about the soulmate connection, but it may also describe those heated and intimate relationships that change everything yet don’t last.
Sometimes soulmate relationships can blossom into forever, and other times they are too intense and need to be released.
Even though soulmates may not physically stay together forever, the love is always there. Soulmates touch us in such deep and profound ways that their memory will always remain.
If you are wondering if you have encountered a soulmate connection, here are 10 typical signs:
1.) You feel an instant and strong attraction to the person. Perhaps, you feel like you know or understand each other already.
2.) The relationship, whether romantic or not, has an intensity that can’t really be explained. You may also feel a strong past life connection.
3.) The encounter can often bring many life changes. Perhaps, meeting this person turns your life around in a dramatic way.
4.) Old pains, fears or habits seem to be stirred through meeting this connection. Perhaps, things from your past come up again in order to be released.
5.) This connection may allow you to learn new skills or talents that you didn’t know you had.
6.) If in a romantic relationship, the strong build of energy may cause you to enter into an “on again-off again” cycle.
7.) You meet or exit each other’s lives in somewhat fated circumstances.
8.) You feel a longing or extremely strong attraction to each other, but often once the lesson has been learned, the attraction may fade or change.
9.) Your coming together feels bigger than just the two of you. Perhaps, you both feel as if you are working towards something greater.
10.) You feel very in tune or in-sync with each other, almost like you know what each other are feeling.
All of these could be signs that you have indeed met a soulmate, but the ultimate sign or way to tell is by trusting your own intuitive feelings.
On a deeper level, you will know when a soulmate has come into your life by listening to the wisdom of your heart.
