Soulmate is a term that gets thrown around a lot but is much easier said than done. We think of our soulmate as the person we are meant to spend the rest of our lives with, and yet this often isn’t the case at all. A soulmate can be a person or even a pet that you have connected with during different incarnations of your life.
Soulmates are someone or something that you find yourself being deeply content and familiar with. We’ve all met people who we had an instant connection with; it can’t be explained, because we’ve never met them before. These people could be family members, friends, or lovers. Our souls recognize these other beings on a deeply personal level, and it can be a subconscious connection that our waking minds can’t quite grasp.
Think about the people in your life who you connected with immediately- they could be friends, co-workers, mutual friends, or romantic partners that you’ve had. Your connection is different. You seem to sense what the other person wants, you know how they behave, and you use the familiarity you have with them to help one another out.
Some people think that soulmates are for life, and in many ways this belief is true. Your connection to this other person is very powerful and can last through many of your lifetimes. However, just because you have found your soulmate doesn’t mean that relationship is without its problems. You are both still human, after all.
You often recognize a familiar soul on a deep, personal level. You are drawn to them because you feel as though you already know them. You might meet in a way that feels like destiny, and your lives could have a lot of similarities. Even if these relationships don’t last forever, they still give you a sense of peace, of rootedness, and of serenity.
Your relationship with your soulmate doesn’t always make sense. You might find yourself depending on them in ways that you’ve never depended on anyone before. Even if you aren’t physically in each other’s space anymore, you can still feel this connection.
In the end, your soulmate isn’t one specific person. They could be anyone in your life; they could be where you least expect it, or they could be the most obvious person in the room to you. If you have found your soulmate or soulmates in this world, love them and appreciate them for as long as you can. All relationships have their time, and you can take comfort in the idea that your souls have been drawn together many times before.
Our souls are deeply complex, and there is so much we have yet to learn about the power of our subconscious minds. Embrace those that come into your life as a soulmate and do what you can to love, support, and cherish them. We all have much to learn from our soulmates about life and about ourselves.
