JADE SMALL: “The Different Kinds of Soulmates and Their Real Purpose”

Soulies

Human life’s purpose is to return to unconditional love.  Depending on the type of relationship, as we learn to love unconditionally,  we feel affection, friendship and romance.

This is where the soulmate fits in, and our soul families are here to help us learn that unconditional love.  Romance alone wont fulfill that mission, so our soulmates are here to help us grow and understand.

Karmic Soul Mates

You can have many Karmic soul mates experience in a lifetime, it is very common.  These soulmates come into our lives to teach us valuable lessons.

Karmic soulmates can be family members, close friends, or even co-workers, but humans are not the only karmic relationships we will have, the same karmic characteristics displayed by humans are often found in our pets, as many of us consider them important and special members of our family.

On occasion, Karmic relationships can be romantic in nature, however, they usually do not last long, because they are solely meant for us to learn a lesson from, for personal growth.

Companion Soul Mates

This soul mate relationship can and usually is romantic in nature, but these soulmates are usually not meant to be forever, just like Karmic relationships, these soulmates come into our lives for a specific purpose, and leave once the lesson has been learnt.
Many people do spend their entire lives with their Companion Soulmate, if they haven’t yet met their twin soul, but should they meet their twin soul while in this relationship, it could suffer and this can cause it to end.  If it continues, it won’t be a satisfying relationship at all.  If you feel like you have felt your twin soul while in a Companion relationship, it does not mean you need to run off!

There is a reason why your companion soul mate is till part of your life!

One thing you must keep in mind is that ending an existing relationship solely because one feels one has found one’s twin soul is never a good idea, because over time you will realize that both associations are meant to be and both have an important role in your life.

We put a lot of our energy into the Companion soulmate relationship, which is an interesting aspect.

While the Karmic soulmate tends to go slow and easily, without effort, just like it does in the twin soul type, the companion bond needs work and effort from both partners.

Twin Flames

The highest form of soulmate connection is that of the twin flame.

This is your souls other half, finding this soul is much like finding yourself.

People spend their life searching without realizing that they are looking for someone just like them, and often never find them in this lifetime.

The twin flame is always there, but not always apparent.  Do we close our eyes to them instead of observing and listening to our souls yearning?  Life is set at such a fast pace and we forget to take notice of things that are right in front of us.

Recognizing your soul mates

Twin Flame

  • A feeling of knowing. 
  • A feeling of comfort and a feeling of assurance that no matter where you go or what you do that you will reunite.
  • Similar intuitions.
  • Dreams.
  • A knowing that you share a higher purpose.

Companion Soul mate

  • A teacher.
  • Someone who mirrors you in some or many ways.
  • Someone that may have gone through a similar life story or situations.
  • Someone who reminds you of the lessons you are here to learn, like forgiveness.

Karmic Souls

  • A soul which you have shared another lifetime with.
  • Someone whom you might feel a connection to when you meet. 
  • You have a feeling of knowing this person previously.
  • Intense feelings of love, needing to be together and sometimes fears.

ALETHEIA LUNA: “10 Soulmate Love Myths Everyone Needs To Read”

more-soulmate-myths

When we were young we listened to jovial stories about princes and princesses falling in love and getting married.  We were taught that we only have one true love out there, and that this person (who is always the opposite gender) completes us.

As we grow older many of us seek to fulfil this romantic ideal.  Some of us spend years pining and searching for the “perfect” lover who can tick all the boxes and match all of our criteria.  In fact, some of us even carry around a mental idea of what our soulmates will look like, sound like, and behave like.  Being a romantic soul myself, I always thought that my soulmate would be a tall, mysterious, rebellious, Australian bloke.  Perhaps I was simply projecting my own disowned anima (masculine energy) outwards?  Instead I fell in love with a logical, brawny, emotionally balanced man of Peruvian descent — a perfect fit for me!

But I’m not the only one who has experienced this.  So many of us think we know what we want in a person, when in fact we don’t.  And sometimes, when someone not quite matching our description comes along, we shut ourselves off, missing the opportunity.

To those of us who have experienced severe emotional and mental wounding in our lives, soulmates appear as a kind of holy mecca or “promised land.”  When we feel incomplete, lonely and disconnected from ourselves, the ideal of soulmate love becomes a beacon of hope promising to save us.  Soon we start sincerely believing that our beloved will “complete us,” and thus make our lives meaningful again.

Deep down many of us believe that there is at least one person out there who will fulfill all of our needs and desires.  In fact, such a warped belief is what causes such high divorce rates and relationship dysfunction running rife in our societies.

There are so many harmful myths about soulmates that circulate through our cultural dialogues.  These myths end up as rigid stories and ideals within our minds.  In fact, these ideals and beliefs are actually responsible for limiting our spiritual growth and capacity to mature as divine beings.  Believing that anything outside of yourself will complete or make you whole is not only misguided, but highly dangerous to your well-being.

So with this in mind, let’s explore 10 of the most common soulmate love myths out there:

Myth 1. You can “find” your soulmate.

First of all, it’s important to drop the illusion of control.  Here’s a wake up call: you have no power over when, where or how your soulmate will appear.  All you can realistically do is be open and receptive to meeting your soulmate.  The human ego tends to believe that it can control life.  But life can’t be controlled.  Life is just as wise, wild and mysterious as it is frustrating!  Our soulmates often appear “out of the blue” when we least expect them to.  But it’s also quite common to intuit, sense or dream about your soulmate before they suddenly appear in your life.

Myth 2. What you want in your soulmate is what you’ll get.

We tend to approach relationships with preconceived notions of what we want or need.  So many articles out there that I’ve read recommend “visualizing your soulmate” so as to “attract them” into your life.  However, this is another trick of the ego.  The law of attraction doesn’t quite work that way.  It is your thoughts and beliefs that reflect your reality.  Your soulmate often isn’t someone you consciously desire, but someone you unconsciously attract and need for inner growth.

Myth 3. Soulmates will stay with you no matter what.

This is another highly harmful myth that creates a lot of unnecessary pain.  As a species we find great comfort in the thought of “always and forever” (hence why marriage is so appealing to us).  But this isn’t always the case.  Sometimes our soulmates stay for a season, and sometimes they stay for a lifetime.

Myth 4. We only have ONE soulmate.

This point is a matter of personal opinion.  However, I believe it is possible to have more than one soulmate in a lifetime.  Talking to many people about their thoughts and experiences on love, I’ve discovered that a great number have had “multiple” soulmate experiences.  Each was different, precious and life-changing in varied ways.  I do, however, believe that we only have one twin flame relationship.  Read more about the difference between soulmate and twin flame connections.

Myth 5. Soulmates are always romantic/sexual.

On the contrary, soulmate relationships can be completely platonic with no sexual or romantic feelings involved.  In other words, your soulmate could simply be your best friend in the world.

Myth 6. Soulmates are human.

We think of soulmates in terms of humans loving other humans.  But many people have felt intense and strong bonds with animals and pets that transcend human language.

Myth 7. Soulmates are the opposite gender.

Religion and tradition would have us believe that soulmates are heterosexual in nature.  In reality, love is free: it is not restricted by what is thought of as “right” or “wrong.”  Your soulmate could very well be of the same gender as you.  If you identify as heterosexual this will obviously come as a great shock to you.  However, it will ultimately encourage you to reclaim your authentic sexuality.

Myth 8. Soulmates are single.

Love is a complex emotion.  It is true that “we can’t choose who we love” — love flows freely and runs wild.  Who can claim to understand the mysteries of the heart?  As such, many people are tormented by the fact that the one they love is already in a relationship or marriage.  This is not the same as stimulation seeking or lust: soulmates resonate much deeper than great chemistry, sex or compatible interests.  As such, soulmates in this position must choose to move on, or break up marriages.  While both options are painful, both are ultimately catalysts for growth.

Myth 9. Soulmate relationships are effortless.

There is a widespread assumption that soulmate love is easy and stress free.  This belief adds to the desirability and idealization of such a relationship.  However, soulmate relationships require time, effort, patience and diligence like any other relationships.  Without conscious maintenance, even soulmate relationships will fail.

Myth 10. Soulmates complete you.

Perhaps the most destructive myth of all, the thought that our soulmates complete us is not only misleading but it is also highly self-disrespecting.  We are taught to believe that our soulmates are our “missing halves” when in fact they are helpers and catalysts of our spiritual growth.  The belief that our soulmate “completes us” is so popular because it encourages us to bypass responsibility for our happiness and wholeness.  It’s much easier to put the burden and pressure on others!  So many people enter relationships believing their soulmate will give them everything they need.  This unfortunately leads to issues such as codependency, toxic enabling and self-betrayal.

Instead of looking outside for completion, why not look inside of your own precious and unexplored soul?  Everything — all the love, acceptance and joy you need — is waiting there to be found.

Tell me …

Did you have any strong emotional responses to this article?  Perhaps this article was everything you didn’t want to read, or everything you hoped to discover.  I hope that I’ve helped to bring more realism to a world that can easily get obscured by myths and ideals.

Some final parting words: learn to completely love, forgive and cherish the person you are.  This is the best way to both attract, and bring harmony to your soulmate relationship.

Did I forget to mention any important soulmate love myths?  I welcome any thoughts or experiences you have below.  Finally, if you haven’t already, take the soulmate test  I created (just for fun!).

LIMITLESS MINDS: “3 Signs That You’ve Met Somebody From Your Past Life”

deja-vu-770x297-15

1.  You feel instant connection or repulsiveness.

When we think about people from our past lives, we often think of friends or relatives or even of people that we’d loved.  Often, when you run into somebody that you know from your past life, you feel immediate connection.  But what about a person that you didn’t like at all?  Sometimes, you might feel automatically repulsed by them.  No matter what, it’s a sign that you knew them before.

2.  Your connection is almost telepathic.

It doesn’t have to mean that you send each other mental messages.  It’s more like their ears ‘burn’ when we talk about them.  You might think of a person and just a second later receive an SMS by them, or you may feel of what next a person will say.  It’s a connection that is hard to explain and even harder to dismiss.

3.  You see it in their eyes. 

Have you ever looked somebody in their eyes and been hypnotized?  Have you felt like you already looked into those eyes a million times before?  If those eyes look familiar to you, then it may be because you have seen them, but in your past life.  If it ever happens to you, pay attention.  Some people believe that eyes don’t change when you pass from one life into another, allowing us to recognize our spiritual companions through time.

What do you think?  Have you met anybody from your past life?

GUSTAVO CASTANER: “Karma Between Soulmates and Twinflames & The 12 Benefits of Manifesting Your Twinflame”

divine-counterparts

It is sad to see how many people meet their twin flames and soulmates but then can’t stay together. Online forums are filled with people sharing how their relationship karma and drama got the best out of their relationship. Some swear that they would never again be in a relationship with their twinflame due to the pain they endured.

Instead of using the relationship to heal, clear and transcend this karma what they did was add MORE karmic baggage to the relationship. And even though they have gone their separate ways, little do they know that they shall meet again (in this or another lifetime) and will have to work out their karma.

Why wait? Heal your relationship baggage now and have the best relationship you could ever have. Remember that your partner is simply mirroring what YOU need to work on. All the reactions you are experiencing and all the things your partner does that trigger you are signals to unresolved issues.

These resistances are simply entry points that offer you the opportunity to unwind, expand, heal, grow and transcend. Be grateful for them, for they are a catalyst towards your enlightenment.

Don’t be fooled, finding your soulmate or twinflame doesn’t mean that the relationship will be a smooth ride ALL the time. The fact that this relationship is triggering you more than any other relationship means that that person is your clearest mirror. Celebrate this.

And if you do the proper work, you will experience the biggest and most profound breakthroughs in your mental, emotional and spiritual evolution. Not to mention that you will also experience a fervent and heartfelt connection that is beyond your wildest dreams.

The benefits of manifesting your twinflame include:

1)  Fulfillment of your Soul’s Purpose

2)  Experiencing higher-giving love

3)  Raising the your own frequency and the frequency of the Earth

4)  Healing the Earth’s grids using tantric energy (most powerful healing energy there is)

5)  Giving birth to an ascended master

6)  Fully satisfying the 6 basic human needs, especially the needs of contribution, self-growth and love and connection

8)  Deep sense of trust and safety

ALETHEIA LUNA: “Soulmates, Twin Flames and Kindred Spirits — What’s the Difference?”

Aletheia (2)

Love. It exists within all people, places and things. It is inextricably linked to God or Spirit. It is the most powerful force in the universe. 

In the grand scheme of things, Love encompasses all, so why is there a need to distinguish one type of love from another? The answer is that in order to spiritually evolve as individuals, we often need to label what we feel and experience. This helps us to better understand what we’re going through on the physical plane.

Before you continue please know that all unconditional forms of love are no better or worse than each other. They all bring their own unique gifts and lessons. They are equal.

The Difference Between Soulmates, Twin Flames and Kindred Spirits

Soulmates, twin flames and kindred spirits are all phrases that have been used to describe relationships that touch our souls and change our lives forever. But what is the difference between all of these terms? I’ll share my interpretation below. Please note that I’m revealing my own experience (and yours might differ). In my life I’ve had the good fortune of experiencing all three types of love. Mateo Sol, my partner and co-writer of this website, is what I would consider both a soul mate and twin flame. So the people in our lives can definitely overlap these definitions!

Kindred Spirits

Kindred spirits are individuals that resonate at the same level, or frequency, as us. As everything in life is composed of energy, we often feel attracted to some people and repelled by others. Have you ever spoken to a person who just seems to “vibe” or “click” with you? That person was probably a kindred spirit vibrating at the same energetic level as you.

Physically, a kindred spirit could be anything: a close friend, a confidant, a family member, a teacher, a lover, a pet, or even a land form.

Kindred spirits often play a very passive role in our lives. In other words, they do not play a very major part in our spiritual growth, but they do comfort and support us. Often kindred spirits share the same personality types as us, as well as similar tastes, interests and passions. While not all kindred spirit connections are necessarily deep and soulful, some can be (these can be thought of as “soulfriend” connections).

Soulmates

Soulmates are people in our lives whom we connect with on a deep level. As the name implies, soulmates are primarily friends of the soul. If you have found your soulmate they will likely be the best, and truest friend, you will ever have. You’ll be able to share everything with your soulmate, from your wildest dreams, to your most shameful secrets. Nothing is off limits.

Spiritually, soulmates usually play a major role in your development. It is possible for soulmates to be platonic, romantic and/or sexual in nature. You can also have multiple soulmates in one lifetime, hence the many love triangles we see and experience.

There are a few different types of soulmate. Sol narrows them down in this article, but you can read a summarized version here:

Soul friends — Soul friends are very similar to kindred spirits. However, the essential difference between the two is that kindred spirits are more personality-based, and soul friends are more essence-based. In other words, soul friends share our deepest dreams, values and drives (not just similar personalities and tastes). This is the most common type of soulmate.

Soul teachers — As the name suggests, soul teachers appear in our lives to help teach us vital life lessons. Sometimes these lessons are taught deliberately, and other times these lessons are unintentional. Soul teachers often appear in the form of ex-lovers, family members, friends and even enemies.

Soul companions — This type of soulmate is a combination of both friend and teacher. In fact, soul companions most closely match people’s perception of what a “soul mate” is. As confidants, soul companions deeply understand, love and cherish us. The depth and blissful harmony that you experience in this relationship will outshine any other that you’ve ever had.

Twin Flames

Many people have asked me whether it’s possible to have more than one twin flame. My response is that it could be possible, but I doubt it. As the word “twin” implies, we only have one twin flame in this life. Sometimes we don’t even meet our twin flame in this incarnation, but rest assured, we have always been connected to them on the level of Spirit.

Twin flames are our mirrors. They reflect back to us our every strength, insecurity, weakness and shadow element. The purpose of the twin flame relationship is to help us undergo soulwork and become the best version of ourselves possible. But here’s the thing, at first twin flame relationships can be intense and tumultuous. This can carry on for many years. But once both egos surrender to their purging and purification, the gifts of humility, empathy and unconditional love are finally obtained.

Our twins reflect the disowned parts of ourselves; they are the yins to our yangs, the suns to our moons, and the light to our darkness. They propel us into shadow work, deep self-discovery and the fulfillment of our potential.

Your twin flame could be your greatest dream or your worst nightmare (or both). They will test you, provoke you and love you fiercely all at once.

Among many tell-tale signs, the greatest proof of a twin flame relationship is its capacity to stimulate the deepest and most beneficial changes within you.

***

At a fundamental level, all souls are connected, all souls flow back to the One Spirit. We have all been given the opportunity to experience at least one soulmate, twin flame or kindred spirit connection in life. These relationships teach us so much about ourselves, our gifts and our unique potentials. In the end, if we’re lucky, we are brought back to the one great truth: that we have been Whole and Complete all along. Soulmates, twin flames and kindred spirits merely help to remind us of that.
