The Perfect Soul

The concept of soulmates is a polarizing one. After all, in a world of 7 billion people, it’s hard to imagine we each have only one perfect match.

But many people who believe in soulmates don’t define them this way. Rather, they believe a soulmate is a person whom you connect with instantly and deeply, who sees and accepts you for who you are and at the same time, pushes you to grow into the best version of yourself.

A soulmate doesn’t even have to be a romantic connection, necessarily ― it could be a friend, family member or teacher. Nor does the relationship need to be easy-breezy all the time or free of conflict.

“A soulmate isn’t always wrapped in the perfect package, physically or in terms of life circumstances — nor does it mean that the relationship will come without challenges,” Kailen Rosenberg of the matchmaking firm The Love Architects. “Yet, the difference is that the life circumstances and the difficult challenges are a strengthening power that becomes the glue that keeps you together through the difficult times and helps each of you become your most authentic self.”

1. You recognize that this person came into your life to teach you an important lesson.
“Your soulmate is there to be your greatest teacher: the one who challenges you, drives you into positive living, stirs your deepest passions and ignites your deepest triggers. The soulmate is the one who challenges the truth of the lessons you have to learn regarding your own value, what you want and, most importantly, don’t want in life when it comes to love. Unfortunately, some people end their relationship with a soulmate too soon because of the struggles, the experience can bring. Others don’t leave the relationship soon enough, so they don’t end up learning the lesson that would have brought them closer to their true and desired life mate, which is what we all want and deserve.

2. You may be very different but you balance each other out.
“I knew My friend was my soulmate when I realized that ways, we were opposite balanced me and the ways we were alike bettered me. It’s an adrenaline-fueled, surreal feeling that’s also stunning in a how-are-you-so-perfect-for-me type of way

3. You get this palpable gut feeling that you’ve met your match.
“When I met my soulmate, I had no idea what a soulmate really was,other than what the happily-ever-after society teaches us, destiny called and I was committed. I felt like I’d known her all my life, we instantly connected and the familiarity intensified. Intuitively, I knew she was the one.
It was like I was attracted to her energy or his soul and not her body, which is a common feeling with soulmates. Our relationship lasted for a season & half, but she’s still ‘with me’ in my heart and soul every day. I think that’s how it is with soulmates: the connection never dies

4. Being around this person gives you a sense of peace and comfort, even very early in the relationship,as soon as our eyes met, I wasn’t anxious or nervous about meeting some stranger off the internet or whatsapp. It was like that song lyric, ‘It is well with my soul,’ something about her immediately felt familiar and I was instantly at peace just being with presence. I didn’t get the butterflies around this incredibly gorgeous lady who couldn’t take her eyes off me; instead, it was like my soul recognized her as My missing piece. When We met the first time, it really was like time stood still ― all I could hear was My heart pounding, all I could see was her. It was really an awesome experience.
