Do soul mates actually exist? It’s a crazy idea that there is a single person out there who is perfect for us; not just someone who is our supporter and life-long companion, but a special someone who can make us feel whole again, who enriches our spirit and takes us to a whole new level.
There are a few different types of soul mates that will help you reveal the layers of your spirit, and guide you towards finding the ultimate soul mate. Different soul mates, that come into our lives solely for the purpose of teaching us something, some to break apart our life and redirect us to somewhere different and some who pass us for the briefest of moments, yet tug on our hearts as if we have known them a lifetime.
These are friends who arrive with intention and provide you with life lessons that clear blocks from your past by mirroring you. Healing mates show up by divine timing; in other words, exactly when we most need to learn what they have to teach.
When the relationship or friendship escalate fast, is when you will recognize this type of soul mate. This type of friend usually show up when you are dealing with repetitive patterns and attempting to work through old issues.
Sometimes we meet a person and just click from that moment on. It is as if you have known them your entire life; even if we have only known them a few minutes.
This one is easy to spot; you could talk for hours on end and never get bored. You could share everything about yourself, and there is no judgment. They get you in a way that nobody else does. This kind of soul mate is a gift because they get to stay.
These are the type that are connected to you through a past life. These are deep and karmic connections; and most of all painful, painful as they involve the struggles of the ego.
You will know this connection because it is a twinlike connection. In times of intense emotions, you actually feel what they feel.
This type can be romantic, but it is can also be platonic. These types of souls are in harmony and on the same wavelength, they are what most people understand when they think of the word soulmate.
They are not destined to be forever, but they can be. Often, these types of soulmates spend a life together; maybe a spouse. These types of relationships require the most work.
- Wrecking Ball
“Soulmates aren’t the ones who make you happiest, no. They’re instead the ones who make you feel the most. Burning edges and scars and stars. Old pains and pangs, captivation and beauty. Strain and shadows and worry and yearning. Sweetness and madness and dreamlike surrender. They hurl you into the abyss. They taste like hope.”
This type of soulmate will not come into your life peacefully. They are there to come in and shake things up. They will challenge you and make you question everything.
This connection will come in many forms but it is usually a romantic relationship that is like a tornado, taken for the ride of your life, and then dumped away. Despite feeling like we do not know what happened since the ride was so fun when it all began, the beauty is that like a tornado we are forced to rebuild from the ground up and can now make our new life anywhere we want.
- Twin Flames
According to mythology, humans were created originally with four arms, four legs, and two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them apart, condemning them to spend the rest of their lives in search of their other halves; their twin souls.
This is not the easy relationship that you were expecting, as a matter of fact it is far from it! The highest form of connection also brings the learning of the most important lessons and intense feelings that we are not used to at all. It acts as a mirror, reflecting all the qualities back at you that you will find difficult to face. You will challenge each other in order to improve yourselves and become the best versions of yourself.
You will know your twin flame because if and when you find each other there will be an unspoken understanding of one another. They will feel a unified inexplicable joy.
