15 karmic reasons you’re single and will stay that way

‍Do you feel like your relationships (or lack thereof) can’t just be a mere coincidence anymore?

Well, there are some karmic reasons that you just can’t commit or make someone else commit to you.

Let’s take a look at 15 karmic reasons why you’re single and will stay that way:

1) You are meant to be alone

You might be wondering why someone could be meant to be alone.

Now: don’t let this statement wreck you, this is not a life sentence.

Sometimes, people are simply meant to be alone for a certain amount of time in order to heal what is going on inside of them!

This could be past trauma, something that is preventing you from being present in the moment, or simply a lack of self-love.

You might just be too scared to open up and let someone in, so you keep people at an arm’s length.

It is hard to imagine that you could ever be ready for something more, but once you are, it will come to you!

Don’t force anything; it will happen when it happens.

So, when I say you are meant to be alone, it means you are meant to be alone for now!

There might be some karma that needs to be released and worked through before you can actually move on and be happy with someone.

Maybe it’s a better idea to work on yourself for now and the right relationship will reveal itself to you!

2) You have a lot of past lives with not-so-great partners

If your exes were really terrible in the past, then this might actually be the cause of why you’re single now.

Your soul might want some time for healing before jumping into another relationship.

This can also mean that your soul wants to learn some lessons about love and other relationships first before getting involved again!

Whatever your reason for being alone now, it is important to remember that those awful exes do not define your future relationships!

You will attract new people who are meant for you and who are good for your soul!

But love can be so full of disappointment and deception.

Experiences like heartache are enough to make you give up on love for good.

We’ve all faced those moments of doubt, thinking perhaps love isn’t for us.

I’ve been there, searching for love and not finding it.

But then I found something helpful: a free Love and Intimacy Masterclass by a wise Brazilian shaman, Rudá Iandê.

This masterclass showed me how sometimes our own thoughts can trick us about love and keep us stuck in unhelpful patterns.

It helped me understand the lies I told myself that kept me lonely or in bad relationships.

For the first time, I felt understood and got real tools to help me navigate through the confusing world of love.

If you’re feeling stuck in a cycle of bad relationships or wondering why you’re still single, this masterclass might give you some new insights.

Don’t settle for weak connections or fake closeness.

3) You are holding onto a toxic relationship from the past

Are you already in despair because none of your relationships seem to last?

Well, you might be in this situation because you’re holding onto a toxic relationship from your past.

You may have an old relationship that is still holding you back, keeping you from letting go of the past.

Moving out from a toxic relationship is hard, and even if you break up with someone, it can take quite a while to heal.

It’s possible that your ex has some negative energy that’s still holding you back from finding love again.

What even is a toxic relationship?

Well, it’s hard to define as there are so many things that fall under it and it depends entirely on the boundaries of both individuals, but in general, a toxic relationship is one that has a negative impact on your life.

If you feel drained and unhappy in your relationship, you might be in a toxic one.

Even if you don’t feel unhappy, it’s important to pay attention to the way your relationship makes you feel and think about whether it’s good for your wellbeing or not.

If it’s not, then it might be time to let go of the past and find someone who can bring out the best in you!

I know that letting go of an ex is hard! I have been there! And I have seen people around me struggling with this too!

It’s just so easy to get stuck in the past and keep holding onto those feelings of pain, anger, hurt, etc., but this is not healthy for anyone involved – including yourself.

Moving on from a toxic relationship will help you work through all of these feelings and understand yourself better!

But how do I let go?

Letting go of a toxic relationship or getting over an ex is easier said than done, but there are some steps that can help make things easier for you! Just follow these steps:

  • Identify what makes a relationship toxic for you
  • Decide you want to let go of the relationship and move on from it!
  • Forgive yourself for being in this relationship!
  • Make a list of all the reasons why you deserve to be loved and cared for!
  • Write a letter to your ex, forgiving them and wishing them well!
  • Start spending more time with friends who make you feel good about yourself and less time with your ex!

These few steps will already send you on your way to healing from this toxic situation!

4) You’re still trying to heal from the previous heartache

Another karmic reason that you may be single is that you still need to heal from a previous heartache.

It takes time to recover from a broken heart and find love again, and if you haven’t fully recovered, you may never find love until you do.

You may want to wait until you’re fully healed before diving headfirst into another relationship.

After all, you don’t want to bring any of your old negative emotions into a new relationship; you want to start off fresh and new.

You may need to take time for self-care and healing so you can fully recover from past heartache and find love again.

This can be done through meditation, yoga, creating art, talking to friends, and finding other hobbies to take your mind off the past.

You see, when you aren’t fully healed from heartache, none of your new relationships will work out properly, causing you even more heartache.

This vicious cycle is fueled by the bad karma of not letting yourself heal!

So, do yourself a favor and refrain from dating until you feel like you are in a place of being fully healed!

5) You don’t believe in love

If you don’t believe in love, you probably don’t believe in relationships, and this can make it extremely difficult to find love.

If you don’t believe in love, you may also have some karma from past relationships that you need to heal before finding love again.

Or, in a past life, something happened that made you not believe in love anymore.

Simply put, you may not believe in love because of how you were treated in your past relationships and because you haven’t experienced love yet.

If you don’t believe in love, you may need to work on self-love before you can fully let go of your past relationships and find love.

You can do this by spending time with yourself and learning to love yourself for who you are, including your flaws and imperfections.

The thing is, you can’t fully experience something you don’t believe in. That makes sense, right?

So, if you don’t believe in love, it will be really difficult to find love.

You may need to work on your self-love and healing to find love again.

6) You aren’t ready for a relationship

This is a common issue that many people face when they are looking for love.

They want to find someone and be in a relationship, but they aren’t ready yet.

Maybe you know at your core that you don’t feel like you are at the right place in their life to be in a relationship with someone else.

If this is the case, there may be some karmic ties holding you back still.

That’s not a bad sign! It simply means that before trying to dive head-first into another relationship, take some time and identify why you don’t feel ready.

And, if you think that you are ready but you aren’t really, then there is even more work to do on yourself.

You may need to work on your self-love to prepare yourself for a healthy relationship.

7) You’re still grieving

If you are still grieving the loss of a past relationship, it can make it extremely difficult to find love again.

It is okay if you are still grieving the loss of a past relationship! It takes time to heal after losing someone special.

But, if you don’t take time for yourself and heal from your past relationships, it will be very difficult for your next romantic partner or friend to fully heal from their past relationships with you too.

Grieving is an important step of moving on from someone, and they don’t have to be dead for this to happen.

You see, when we are with someone, we have a vision of what our future with them will look like and what version of ourselves will be with them.

Now: when you split ways, you need to grieve that version of yourself and your future, so that you can come to terms with your loss.

This is also important so that you don’t continue to bring karmic ties into your next relationships or even your next lives!

8) You aren’t serving others and helping the world right now

If you aren’t serving others and helping the world, you may not be ready to commit to a relationship.

You may be too focused on yourself and your needs and wants to be able to give a relationship your full attention and care.

Maybe your purpose right now is to help other people first before finding the love of your life.

If you aren’t helping others and the world, then you have some karmic reasons for being single.

You can serve others in many ways, such as volunteering, doing random acts of kindness, and helping those in need.

Once you start serving others, you’ll feel better about yourself and ready to commit to someone and a relationship.

And the best part?

With helping others comes a sense of self-esteem and confidence that will help you to find the perfect partner!

9) You aren’t taking care of yourself

If you aren’t taking care of yourself, you might be telling the universe that you don’t deserve to be loved.

You see, we give ourselves our own karma! When you act as though you are not worthy of care and love, what makes you think anyone else would see you as worthy of it?

When we take care of ourselves, we feel worthy of love and are more likely to attract a great partner.

You can take care of yourself by eating well, exercising, taking time for yourself, and getting enough sleep.

You also need to be your own best friend and love yourself first.

If you aren’t doing any of these things, then you’re telling the universe that you aren’t worthy of love!

10) You aren’t happily single

Another karmic reason to be single is that you simply aren’t happy single.

And I know – it can be really hard to feel happy when society tells us at every chance that a partner will fulfill you.

This is where Justin Brown’s video on how to be happily single really helped me out.

He showed me a different approach to the whole topic of being single that gave me clarity like never before.

Finally, I saw the beauty of this time of being single and I was able to accept my situation with love.

And the best part?

Once you accept that and are happily single, there’s a good chance that your karmic reasons to be single will dissolve and you find the perfect partner!

11) Your actions have caused you to be alone

You may have some karma that has caused you to be alone if you’ve caused someone to be alone or broken a relationship.

Simply put, you may have done something in the past that broke a relationship, caused someone to be alone, or caused someone to just not want to be with you.

If you have some karma behind you, then this could be the reason that you’re single.

If you broke a relationship or you know someone is alone as a result of your actions, you need to mend that karma.

You can do this by sincerely apologizing for your actions and trying to help the person you hurt feel better.

Another thing you can do is help more people find love while simultaneously being remorseful for what happened and letting it go.

Once you can let go of these things and forgive yourself fully, that’s when the karmic ties are dissolved and you get to find your partner!

12) Your life is on hold because of an important decision you need to make

If you are single because you are waiting on an important decision to be made, that might be the reason.

Simply put, if you have some big decisions to make, such as which career path you want to take or what school you want to go to, you may be too focused on this decision to have time for a relationship.

You may feel like you need to put your career or schooling first for a while before you can find someone to commit to.

If this is the case, then you have some karmic reasons for being single.

Now: there is nothing wrong with focusing on something else for now before committing to a person completely.

On the contrary, it’s a really good thing!

However, you should figure out what is causing your life to be on hold and whether you can do anything about it!

13) You haven’t forgiven yourself for something you’ve done in the past

If you haven’t forgiven yourself for something you’ve done in the past, you may be holding yourself back from committing to a relationship.

You may be too focused on your own flaws and mistakes to be able to commit to a relationship and let someone else fully trust you.

Sure, if you haven’t forgiven yourself for something you’ve done in the past, you may have some karmic reasons for being single.

But if you want to move forward and find love, you need to forgive yourself for your past mistakes.

You can do this through meditation, journaling, and talking to friends.

The thing is, nobody is perfect! Everybody makes mistakes at some point in their life and it’s important to not let that cloud the image you have of yourself!

Instead, forgive yourself so that you won’t be carrying that karma on further!

14) You have some karmic strings that need to be mended first before anyone can commit to being with you for the rest of their lives

If you have some karmic strings that need to be mended first before anyone can commit to being with you for the rest of their lives, you may be single because of that.

In other words, you may have some strings from the past that need to be mended before you can find love again.

If you have karmic strings from the past that need to be mended, you can do this by sincerely apologizing for your actions and trying your best to help the person you broke up with or hurt feel better.

But karmic strings can also mean that you have to learn something before you can find love again.

Maybe you need to learn how to forgive or how to set boundaries with people.

Or maybe you just need to improve your self-esteem and confidence!

Learning how to forgive yourself for past mistakes and improving your self-esteem may not be easy, but it can really help you move forward and find love again in the future!

15) You keep choosing the wrong karmic partners

If you keep choosing the wrong karmic partners, you may be single because you’re not ready to commit to a relationship.

If you keep choosing the wrong karmic partners, you haven’t found the right one yet and still have lessons to learn from your partners about your relationship.

Simply put, if you keep choosing the wrong karmic partners, you may need to find out what you’re doing wrong so you can find the right person for you.

It may take time, but eventually, you’ll find the right person for you. You just need to be patient and keep your eyes open for that special someone.

You see, karmic partners are partners that really aren’t good for us, but they help to teach us a lesson.

The lesson we learn from them can be about forgiveness, setting boundaries, or improving our self-esteem.

You may need to keep looking for a partner that will help you learn those lessons and find love again in the future.

Karmic partners aren’t fun to be with, quite the contrary, they can be really toxic.

However, if you find yourself in bad relationships over and over again, the common denominator is you!

Now: I’m not saying everything is your fault, but you need to learn something in order to finally break out of this karmic cycle that you’ve found yourself in!

What lesson are they all teaching you?

You won’t be alone forever

Remember, as hopeless as it may feel right now, you won’t be alone forever!

Sooner rather than later the perfect partner will waltz into your life and make things better.

Until then, make sure that you are settling all of your karmic reasons to be single so that there is nothing standing in the way of you and a happy relationship!
