Sometimes you just know, they’re the one
We all want that one epic love. The one that sweeps us off our feet, the once in a lifetime love that completely unravels us.
It’s something we look for our whole lives. We bend over backward, offering ourselves to people in the hopes that they’re our “other half.”
Yet even though we have such specific ideas of what a soulmate should be, we often can’t recognize it when it’s right in front of us. Sometimes we’re able to manifest our soulmate.
So let’s get right down to it…
What is a soulmate?
Contrary to popular belief, a soulmate is not someone who completes you. They’re not someone whose sole purpose is to make you feel whole. And they will not magically fix everything in your life.
A soulmate is simply someone who fits you in all aspects. They’re so ideal to you in every sense, that they complement every part of you. It’s a partnership built on chemistry, respect, and love.
You and your soulmate may not necessarily complete each other. But you are better together.
And while life will still be full of challenges, when you’re with your soulmate, everything just makes sense.
Soulmates can come in our lives in the form of romantic partners, friends, mentors. If you’re lucky, a soulmate can be a constant part of your life.
But even though we might want them to stay in our lives forever, that isn’t always the case.
Sometimes, soulmates are just meant to be with us for a little while, just enough time to teach us a significant lesson.
Nevertheless, they’re magical people who give meaning to our lives.
Here are 7 signs you’ve met your soulmate:
1. You feel a powerful “pull” towards them.
One classic sign of a soulmate is intense and inexplicable chemistry. It comes in the form of an insane physical attraction coupled with an emotional bond that almost feels like “coming home.”
When you meet your soul mate, you’ll always want to be with them. You won’t be able to help it. Being away from your soulmate literally feels like you’re breaking yourself into pieces.
But remember, chemistry isn’t just about that chemical pull. It goes beyond just body connection. Your bond with your soulmate always goes to a much deeper level, that they speak to your very soul.
2. They force you to grow.
You know you’ve met your soulmate when they push you to be the best version of yourself. And it’s not even because they want you to. Soulmates don’t push you to be anything other than yourself. They don’t force you to do things that don’t feel authentic to you.
But simply being with them inspires you. You want to be better because they make you believe that you can be.
You learn the biggest lessons of your life with your soulmate because they force you to grow, to be more mature, and to embrace the evolution of life.
3. You feel at home with them.
This is perhaps the most unique and magical bond between soulmates.
There’s a strong sense of “coming home.” This feeling is called “soul recognition,” where you feel as if you’ve finally arrived somewhere you were meant to be your whole life.
Soul recognition is the most natural thing you’ll feel with your soulmate. It’s an uncanny familiarity and belongingness that feels so good, you’ll be addicted to it.
4. You look at life the same way.
Because you and your soulmate “fit” together so easily, it’s only normal that you have the same life goals.
You have the same vision of what you want in the future. And you have a similar way of achieving it. Your values and belief systems are the same, that you naturally end up wanting the same things in life.
You may have your differences, but you’re wired in the same way that you’re always on the same page.
5. You have great communication.
Remember in your past relationships when you just can’t express yourself or be heard the right way?
You don’t have that problem with your soulmate. In fact, you communicate so well with each other, that sometimes, you don’t even need words to know what they’re thinking!
Of course, you have different opinions and perspectives, but you always manage to communicate in a healthy and understanding way. Even if you have arguments, you make sure that the sun doesn’t shine on them.
A soulmate is a rare and precious person…
So if you meet them, make sure you cherish every single moment. Perhaps they’re meant to stay in your life forever. But even if they do, you should still be grateful for the memories and lessons they gave you.
