“What we find in a soulmate is not something wild to tame but something wild to run with.” Soul connections, we hear about it, read about it and some of us are lucky enough to experience it; we are all curious and most of us want one.
“Your soul mate makes you feel entirely intact like no piece is missing from the puzzle. A life partner, on the other hand, can be a great supporter and long-time companion, but is limited in his or her capacity to enrich your spirit.” ~ Dr. Carmen Harra
In life, we have absolutely no control over timing and sometimes less control of circumstances. Some choose not to wait, in fact, I believe most do. Nobody likes to be alone after all, so they become satisfied with a mature life partner style relationship. For some, it is about survival and security, for others simple companionship. And, since we are biologically designed to fall in love, it is only natural that we pair up in this world. But, we sometimes prolong what are supposed to be temporary relationships and mistakenly settle into them for good.
No matter what category you fall into, there are several indications which clearly outline a soulmate bond (or lack thereof) between you and your partner. As you go through this list, think about your partner or potential partner and evaluate whether they meet the soulmate criteria.
- No Words to Express
Describing how a soulmate makes you feel is difficult. It is a tenacious, profound and lingering emotion which no words can express.
No relationship is perfect, and even soulmate relationships will experience ups and downs. Still, that bond will be much harder to break. Soul mates have an easier time of accepting, even falling in love, with each other’s imperfections.
A soul mate relationship may be much more intense than a normal relationship, in both good and bad ways. But, the most important thing is, even during the bad times you are focused on resolving the problems and can see beyond the bad moment.
- Us against the world
People who are connected at the soul often have a mental connection similar to twins. They might pick up the phone to call or text each other at the same time. Though life might pull you apart, your mind will always be in tuned with your soulmate.
- Can’t Imagine a World Without Them
A soulmate is not someone you can walk away from easily. It is someone you can not imagine being without, a person you believe is worth sticking with and fighting for.
- Eye to Eye
Soulmates have a tendency to look into each other’s eyes when speaking more than ordinary couples. It comes naturally from the connection between them. Looking a person in the eye when speaking denotes a high level of comfort and confidence.
- Something Inside
Describing how a soulmate makes you feel is very difficult. It is a tenacious, profound and lingering emotion which no words can really express.
“When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep…
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning…
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love…
And think not you can direct the course of love,
For love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course…
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.”
Kalil Gibran, from “The Prophet”.
