A soulmate is truly your other half, somebody with whom you’re deeply and spiritually intertwined. In modern times, most people assume that a soulmate is a romantic partner. But soulmates can also be a family member or friend.
Your soulmate is that one person who knows you better than anybody else does, somebody you bond with and carry with you forever, wherever you go in life. Your soulmate is the first person you call when good or bad things happen; that one who can understand you simply by looking at you; somebody you trust with your life.
People often describe their soulmate as somebody who’s always close to their heart, even when they’re not together physically; somebody who makes them feel safe.
Our souls are destined to be with another person’s soul from the moment we enter this world. We’re born as half of a pair, and it’s our mission in life to find the missing piece of our puzzle—that person to help us heal from our past hurts, to become the best version of ourselves, and to show us how wonderful the world will be if we have them by our side.
When we meet our soulmate, it’s difficult to keep our eyes off them. You’re communicating with your eyes and connecting on a new, deeper level. You feel as though you’ve met before; you recognize each other, but you’ve never seen each other before.
This is because you actually have known your soulmate before—in past lives. Your souls remember each other, which causes a physical reaction.
You and your soulmate don’t look alike outwardly, but your souls are twins. That’s why you’re a perfect match.
Meeting your soulmate is an event that leaves a permanent impression on our psyches. And though we all have our own ways of facing life’s unexpected events, there are some signs common to everyone when meeting their soulmate. Here are nine of them.
- You lose your breath.
When you meet your soulmate, one of the first things that happens is that you lose your breath for a moment. Two universes are crashing, and time comes to a halt. You may feel like you forgot how to breathe, and you wonder if the other person is literally taking your breath away.
- You feel agitated.
The emotions upon initial eye contact with your soulmate are overwhelming. Your hands tremble, your heart races, your body shivers, and your mind goes fuzzy.
- You’re confused.
Your soul may have grasped what’s happening, but your body, your mind, and your ego still aren’t fully aware of what’s going on. They’re attempting to rationalize and get to the bottom of everything you’re feeling. So, you may feel confused when you first look into your soulmate’s eyes. You may change your body language, get tongue-tied, or even feel numb.
- You finally calm down.
When your soul finally comprehends what’s going on, you physically calm down. Your entire being has been waiting for this very moment. So, after the initial excitement and astonishment, you’re filled with contentment and peace. You suddenly know, deep down, that everything will be okay from now on. Everything will fall into place, and the unnecessary turbulence and drama will dissolve out of your life.
- You feel like you’ve known each other for a long time.
Meeting your soulmate may make you feel nostalgic. It’s as though they’ve already known you for a long time, because you feel like they already understand you more thoroughly than you understand yourself. You recognize their touch, even though you’re feeling it for the first time in this lifetime. You may experience flashbacks, and realize that you may have loved them in one or more past lives.
- So, you have a lot to say!
The connection you feel with your soulmate compels you to talk as though you have whole lifetimes on which to catch up. Despite this, neither of you feels uncomfortable or nervous. On the contrary, you understand each other perfectly. You don’t misunderstand each other at all, and you even begin finishing each other’s sentences.
- You immediately love them.
When you meet your soulmate, you immediately know they’re your soulmate. So, you don’t “grow” to love them as you become more familiar with them. You immediately care for them in a way you’ve never cared for anybody else before.
Once you meet, your soulmate becomes the center of your universe. You forget your exes, your issues, your past traumas, and all your doubts about love.
- You trust each other’s intentions.
You and your soulmate are on the same wavelength. You don’t have to question their intentions, and they don’t have to question yours. You don’t have to wonder if you’ll break each other’s hearts. Everything in your past finally makes sense. This is why things didn’t work out with other relationships. You now know that your soulmate is the only one who’s right for you.
- Everything becomes crystal-clear.
There aren’t any mixed signals involved in soulmate relationships. There aren’t any hidden messages, and there’s no playing games. You’ve finally found true love, and the deep connections you and your soulmate share will endure for the rest of your lives. So, insignificant details fade to irrelevancy. You stop caring about things such as their past or family background and the difference in your ages. You just want to keep this person by your side, and you’re committed to doing whatever it may take to make that happen.
If you’re still waiting to meet your soulmate, rest assured that you certainly will. Their soul is also searching for yours, and there’s no way that you’ll be left without connecting to the missing piece of your life’s puzzle.
The best part about finding your soulmate is that it’s always mutual; they also feel the signs that their soulmate has come into their life. The moment your eyes lock with your soulmate’s, you’ll both know you’ve met who you’ve been waiting for, and neither of you will think twice about welcoming each other into your lives. When they touch you, the atoms in your bodies react with pure, unadulterated joy.
