Aww, soul mates. We dream of them. We think of them. And we would “die” to meet them. But what exactly is a soul mate?
A soul mate is a person with whom you have a deep attraction or infinity. Soul mates go deeper than sharing the same taste of music, hobbies and cuisine. In fact, soul mates can have entirely different interests and outlooks in life. Many people believe they have met a soul mate. But, many confuse the notion with their imagination or a make-believe fantasy that a situation is better than what it is.
Many believe that a soul mate is where a soul is split in half, recreated into each gender and spend various reincarnations trying to find each other. I cannot confirm whether this is one-hundred percent accurate, but soul mates can also be the meeting of two souls who have spent time with each other in previous lives. Generally, there is a positive association between the two souls. Soul mates are not about romance and beauty. It's about spirituality and a development between two souls uniting as one unite.
So how do you know if you’ve met a soul mate? These tips are based on my life experience as well as conversations I have had with highly spiritual and energetic beings who have had profound experiences.
-Unexpected / Random Meeting – You may be in a point of your life where you question, “What is a soul mate?” but are not actively seeking the person. I have found that the meeting occurs in the most random or unexpected times and places of life. It usually occurs when you are not looking or least expect it.
-Spiritual Signs – You may not realize until you look back and connect the dots, but the universe will send you signs “galore.” Spirit animals, symbols, lucky (and angel) numbers and the name of the person may show up days or weeks before, during and after the meeting. These small signs can help reassure the meeting or connection between the soul mates. Soul mates who telepathically connect often see “signs” when the person is thinking or about to touch base with that person. For example, if your soul mate lives in Florida, you may notice a significant amount of Florida license plates for days even if you live across the country.
-Gut Feelings – You may experience a deep gut feeling, goosebumps, chills or tingling throughout the body when you meet the person. Often the spirit world reassures us through sending messages through our physical body.
-Unexplainable Attraction – This does not mean lust, but you may feel a “magnetic” pull toward the person. Although you may feel a deep sexual attraction, you would rather spend time with the person instead of rushing off to bed. There is a sense of comfort and familiarity that is only explained through the physical body with a deep, gut feeling. True love is of the soul and the subconscious mind knows something that the logical mind does not understand.
-Rags to Riches – The illusion of modern reality is that we all dream of meeting a rich, stable person who dresses nice, drives a nice car and swindles us with fancy meals. Many people who want those qualities in a (wo)man are running in a hamster wheel chasing an illusion and fail to recognize that life sent them their soul mate years ago. But, because of being blinded by materialism (s)he kicked the soul mate to the curb in hopes to meet his or her “dream mate.” You have met a soul mate when you TRULY do not care about their fashion, style, religion or income. There is one thing if a person is lazy and doesn’t want to work, but another to judge a person based on their income or sense of style. If you love the fairy tales where the prince falls in love with a peasant lady, you need to realize that some soul mates are sent to us with the same story set in modern times.
Have you met a soul mate? I would love to hear your comments about some signs or realities about how you knew that the person you met were soul mates.
