We’ve all been in the situation where we’ve met someone new but have this immediate and deep connection – sometimes to the point of being able to anticipate what they are going to say next – or feeling as if they’ve been in our life forever. Often this can mean they have been in a spiritual sense as this kind of ‘instant karma’ we feel with certain people is exactly that. A karmic, past life connection and the level of comfort and feeling we already ‘know’ someone is merely our shared history catching up with us and playing out in this lifetime.
These kind of past-life connections are easy to spot but what about others that may also stretch across several lifetimes and involve soul promises, but which may not be quite so obvious? How do we recognize them?
1. Why we meet our fellow souls
As per Michele Knight, a famous psychic, “the souls with whom we have the deepest connection and with whom we have chosen to learn and grow with, are the ones who are there to teach us the most profound lessons. And sometimes these lessons are not easy. Just because you have known one another in a past life do not mean it will all be love and happy endings in this one.”
2. Born again for another set of game!
One or both of us can fail to learn the lesson or forgive on a soul level. Until this happens we will keep coming back – like students who have to re-take an exam, until we get it ‘right’. Know the signs we should look for in even our most challenging relationships that we may have a strong past life connection with someone…
3. If you are learning something about yourself
If you’re being challenged in some way – either positively or even negatively, this is one sign that there is an important soul connection here. The bigger the challenge and the more you have to grow on a soul level to meet it, then the number of lifetimes you have spent with this person increases. Remember – this goes for negative experiences as well as positive ones because often we learn more from failures than we do our successes.
4. If you felt an immediate connect
You felt an immediate connection that was “out of this world” or so familiar you can’t believe this person ever wasn’t in your life. This one seems obvious, but so many minds doubt what body and soul announces. If you light up and synchronize with another person right away, then it’s a strong indicator that you’ve run into this soul before, perhaps multiple times. It doesn’t necessarily mean this person is your soul mate or that you belong together. It just means you’ve had met before.
5. If you felt an immediate and intense loathing for someone
Your emotions help you know what resonates or does not resonate with you, even if you don’t understand the reasons. Intuitive people often experience negative impressions of people who wish to harm them, and that does not necessarily indicate a past life relationship! When a strong aversion occurs with regard to people who have proven themselves safe (to the best of your observation) or who truly love and wish to support your growth, then that aversion often indicates a background story of loss, betrayal, harm or misunderstanding.
6. If you can’t understand why you feel what your feel
This sometimes happens with parents and newborns. A mom finds herself unable to part with the baby, even if that means revamping life. The surprising reaction can also occur among others, like when you meet someone you previously dismissed or idolized and have the opposite experience than you envisioned. This indicator doesn’t rely so much on intensity as confusion, especially tormented confusion. Why?
