The concept of soulmates is very popular amongst people. It makes sense: the belief that somebody – the one – is out there, and soon your paths might finally cross and that person will make you realise why it has never worked with anyone else before.
It’s a nice thought, knowing there will be someone who is perfect for you, who shares the same interests. It’s nice, because thinking about love like that gives you a secure feeling. The feeling that everything will be okay in the end no matter what.
Today, I want to discuss the concept of soulmates a little bit more. I’ve recently come upon this video, which made me think about love and soulmates and why do we fall in love with certain people.
What is a soulmate?
The term soulmate has many different definitions.
„someone, usually your romantic or sexual partner, who you have a special relationship with, and who you know and love very much“ – Cambridge Dictionary
„It’s like a best friend, but more. It’s the one person in the world that knows you better than anyone else.“ – Urban Dictionary
There are even some concepts that describe soulmates, like the Japanese tale of the red thread of fate. The legend says that two people who are destined to meet someday are connected by an invisible red thread.
„no matter how far apart they live or how much their life circumstances differ“ – Bright Side
But is that true? Is everyone destined to meet another person at some point in their life?
Do soulmates exist?
What do you think? Do soulmates exist? Is there only one soulmate for each person? Is it a love interest, or a friend?
In my opinion, soulmates do exist. However, I don’t believe that there is only one soulmate for each person. And I certainly don’t believe that a soulmate has to be a love interest or sexual partner.
I think there are quite a few people who you can feel that special connection with. Do you know what I mean? You see them for the first time and you instantly know, yes, this person belongs in my life. Somehow like a special bond even though you might not really know them yet. And when you get to know them, the two of you instantly click.
A person, that always inspires you to be your best self, and you gets you on a deeper level. A person, who you have a special kind of intimacy with. People on your exact same level of energy.
I believe each person who comes into your life is there for a purpose. They either inspire you or teach you a lesson. Sometimes they stick with you for a longer period of time. I think that your soulmate (or your soulmates) will bump into your life, when you will need them the most.
I know that I have found one soulmate in a best friend of mine. Her and I get along so well and know each other inside out, it’s actually crazy. We share the same energy and she inspires me every time I see her. And she did come into my life when she was supposed to, looking back I am 100 percent sure.
Looking for your soulmate has no use, maybe they are not supposed to be in your life yet. It’s comparable with every situation like this: If you go looking for your keys, you will never find them while actively searching for them. Or when you can’t remember a word, but you know that you know it – you will never remember it while actively thinking about it. Only if you are distracted and thinking about a different topic, you will suddenly remember it.
The key to meeting a soulmate is the same as the key to finding love: stop looking for one.
Don’t think about how you are going to meet your soulmate. Live your life. Go for your goals and dreams. Travel. Do what makes YOU happy. Be whole. Feel whole. Be complete by yourself. Trust the Universe that good will happen and that you will attract GOOD into your life. Let everything happen naturally. Let it flow.
Just be and everything will fall into place. Even if you don’t believe in it yet. Life and the universe always have their ways. And everything will be okay in the end.
Much love, as always
