Thanks for reading. I would add one other definition. Because of our resistance to not always hearing what we want, we might perceive them as an enemy.
In general I personally refer to these as soul teachers, particularly if we are constantly at odds with them and there is an underlying thread of antagonism in the relationship. Soul mates do challenge us, but never in deliberately negative ways. I am just coming out of a relationship with a partner that seemed to be the closest to a Soul Mate that I have experienced…. Do you believe it is possible for a Soul Mate connection to be one-sided because one of them is still caught up in the web of unconscious conditioning??
Could you connect on a very deep level, past surface likes, similarities, goals and tastes? If so, she was your soul mate. Unfortunately I am on the other side of your story, I can say that I had felt the connection but was too caught up in my unconscious web, as you described it.
The several reasons were because of personal past failures, hurt and imbalances in heart relationships that I had to start working on myself and release the suffocation. I was not able to love and solve at the same time even though he offered great help. After sharing my feelings with him he thought that the relationship was superficial.
Thank you for sharing that Sandra. The part that was most painful for me was that there was no communication about ending things or resolving things. It just ended.
“When you meet that person. a person. one of your soulmates. let the connection. the relationship. be what it is. it may be five minutes. five. Ah, soulmates. The epitome of love and partnership. In our fast-paced chaotic world, which boasts all sorts of different people, we find ourselves.
Not a word. Not an email. Simply gone. I was unfriended from Facebook and blocked from instagram. And this was after more than of a year of exploring, discovering and sometimes traveling together. Nothing has ever brought up my fear of abandonment issues more than this relationship! I have finally let go, and am moving on with my life, now believing it was fear-based action… Thanks again for sharing your perspective!
I always felt there was something missing in my past relationships and I never felt complete, until I became a mother.
I finally felt whole and when I saw this tiny human look at me with love in his eyes I finally began to love myself. Although my partner is my romantic soul mate I still feel my soul is most spiritually connected to my son. Susie, I feel the exact same way!! I always felt something was missing in my life until my son came into my life…. First of all. I really love this article, Luna. I need one of this. But i want to ask something. Please correct me if i am wrong, but is it all about self-love? Iqbal, this is extremely good news! Not all of us have a soul mate, but not all of us NEED a soul mate.
It is far better to be content with your own company than pining for the love of another — although this is natural as most of us are social creatures. The more you are happy alone, the more genuine love you will be able to give to others. This is a hypothetical question. What if your soulmate is your therapist and both of you want to be with each other?
All are very relevant connections and you can have many. Of course, nothing is black and white and many times our connections with others overlap many categories. They happen for a purpose and when that purpose ends, the relationship ends. It fulfilled the purpose that it was meant for and yes it was successful in that respect.
I like your approach and agree with it Carla.
Everything in life is a lesson for us and I believe that is a much healthier approach. I love this article. It really is a fantastic description of what a soul mate is and what this all means. I have recently learned the difference between infatuation, and a deep soul connection. The part about the person seeming familiar to you, perhaps from previous lives particularly resonates. Learning the difference between love and lust … a biggie! Also learning the difference between idealism and realism is hard as well. Thanks for commenting!
