soulmate and life partners

Do you know the difference between soulmates and life partners? The following article clears some confusion regarding the soulmate vs life partner debate.

Soulmate Relationship

Someone who is aligned with your soul and is sent to challenge, awaken and stir different parts of you in order for your soul to transcend to a higher level of consciousness and awareness.

Once the lesson has been learned, physical separation usually occurs.

Life Partner Relationship

A companion, a friend, a stable and secure individual who you can lean on, trust, and depend on to help you through life.

There is a mutual feeling of love and respect and you are both in sync with each other’s needs and wants.

Soulmate Vs Life Partner

Everyone wants to meet their Soulmate. In fact, one of the most common questions I receive in my readings and coaching sessions is- “When am I going to meet my Soulmate?”

Our Soulmates always arrive when we are ready for them and not a moment sooner. They arrive when we are ready to learn the lessons that we were destined to fulfill.

Soulmate relationships are often not forever, this is because sometimes the relationship can be too intense or there is a certain karmic energy to the relationship that sees it come to a close once the necessary lessons have been learned.

Soulmates can also be friends and relatives; they don’t always have to be romantic partners. Regardless of this, you will always feel a strong, energetic connection or a past life history together.

Many of us spend years obsessing about meeting a Soulmate but fail to notice what we are really asking for.

When we ask for a Soulmate we are really asking to grow and develop in consciousness, and not understanding this can sometimes block the energy from coming to us.

If you really want to connect with a Soulmate, you need to align with your own soul. You need to discover who you are, honor yourself, and begin following your heart.

When you align with your true self, you are then instantly in the vibration of meeting your soulmate.

Alternatively, if you are done with the soul lessons for now and are just looking for a companion to share the rest of your life with, what you want to be asking for, or manifesting is your Life Partner.

Related: Why Soul Connections Are Bigger Than Soulmates

A Life Partner is more like a companion or friend with whom you feel a strong connection. It may not be a deep, soul connection like a soul mate, but there would be a mutual feeling of trust, understanding, and respect.

A life partner is someone who is dependable and considerate of your needs and wants. Of course, a life partner is also someone that you are attracted to and that you love and care for.

While you will still be learning lessons from a life partner, they are more about lending support and giving you a guiding hand as you navigate through your own soul journey.

Meeting your Life Partner is usually not something you spiritually or energetically prepare yourself for like you would with a soulmate. Instead, it requires emotional and mental preparation and physically putting yourself out there.

It is possible to have your Soulmate also be your Life Partner and it is also possible that you and your Life Partner can develop a deeper, soul connection- it all just depends on which direction you choose to steer.
