This is a response to “A letter to myself: relationships are full-time work, are you up for the job?”
We all hunt for deep and authentic connections with people. I think it is one of the soul’s purposes, if not the soul’s purpose, why we are here on earth. We all want to feel loved and understood as we move through the mystery of life. But did you know that there are three types of soul connections that go beyond the casual human relationship? These are the ever so mystical connections that are soul mates, twin flames and kindred spirits. Below we’ll dive into the three so you can discover if you’ve met someone you share this magical bond with.
This is the connection people hear about most often. People will say, “I think I’ve met my soul mate because he really understands me like no one else!” Soulmate connections can be platonic or romantic. Many people believe that there is only one soulmate connection, but there may be more than one in your life that you come across. If you think you have found your only soulmate connection, think again, there might be someone else who shares this soul connection with you. The difference between the twin flame and other connections is that this bond connects two people. It comes naturally to this person and you are amazed at how easily you get along. Many people eventually marry this person or become bound to them forever. Other signs people feel when they have met their soulmate is that the person feels at home, balanced by others, respected and challenged, and truly connected after this life. Whether the relationship is platonic or romantic, this connection makes you feel abundantly loved and cherished.
A twin flame is not the same as a soulmate for many reasons. A twin flame is a soul that has separated from one person to be in two people. In other words, this person is, in a sense, a replica for you. This is one of the strongest connections you can have because it is said that your soul is inside someone else. When we see ourselves so strongly in someone else, it’s almost scary because you don’t always see the rainbows and butterflies. You see the insecurities and struggles in that other person who mirrors you. You are confronted head-on with the issues you are dealing with internally in someone else. The good news is that these are the kind of people who can help you overcome your problems within yourself to further ease your self-consciousness in life. The key here is that this relationship is all about growth and feeling like someone is an extension of you.
Unlike the soul mate and twin flame connections, this connection is where your soul actually just vibrates with someone else and you instantly click. These are the people you just get and are drawn to for no rhyme or reason. Many of these relationships are platonic and stay that way throughout your life. They can be with your mom, a teacher, a close friend, or really anyone. These people really want to lift your spirits and encourage you to get better at everything you do in life. They are your support system, lifeline, and the ones you can turn to at the end of the day because they won’t judge. You are connected by similar values and interests. They are energetically tied to you and are generally pretty much on the same wavelength. If you find these people in your life, don’t let them go!
Life is wild. Life is short. With all the people we meet in our lives, it is truly a wonder how two people can cross paths and never realize that they have just met someone who will change their life. All it takes is a simple interaction in a coffee shop, an airport, or who knows, even a bathroom line to spark a conversation. You never know who you might meet, that will be one of the connections mentioned above. For now, keep that beautiful life of your life and keep going build deep connections that last. It is, in my opinion, the root of true happiness.
