In my life, I had a soul mate who was also my life partner, my wife, friend and confidante. I didn't know she was my soul mate until I had realization of it much, much later in our relationship. What I know now is that all the experiences I had with her, all the feelings that happened in our relationship are elements of a soul mate relationship. When I got clarity on these elements, many unanswered questions that I had about our relationship were opened up to me.
In recent years, I have noticed many who say they crave a soul mate. I wonder if they really know what they're asking for. While it is admirable to wish for such a thing, I am of the opinion that most are asking out of really not understanding what a soul mate is and what it's like to live with one. I share my experience with you to help you gain clarity on this type of relationship.
Here are 10 aspects of a soul mate relationship I realized from having such a relationship:
1. It's something inside.
2. Flashbacks as in seeing them in another lifetime.
3. You just get each other.
4. You fall in love with their flaws.
5. It's intense and I mean intense.
6. It's you two against the world.
7. You're mentally and emotionally inseparable. You are one with them almost like they are you.
8. You feel secure and protected with them.
9. You can't imagine your life without them. You will feel at a loss when they are not around.
10. You look each other in the eye.
And, here's are a couple of bonuses:
You are mirrors for each other and you are actually the same soul.
So, you may be wishing for a soul mate and that's fine but be careful what you wish for as it is a deeply loving relationship that will test you to the core of your being.
