What Is A Soulmate: Are We All Destined To Meet One?

what is a soulmate

10. Soulmates aren’t always immediately recognizable.

Love, at first sight, isn’t a myth, but it also isn’t the only way you can discover who your soul mate is. Often soul mates appear in various “disguises” in our lives.

11. Soulmates don’t always stay with you for a lifetime.

This is an extremely harmful myth that I’d love to squash once and for all! Soul mates don’t always stay until the end, but this is not a bad thing. We like to think that our lovers will be there forever because it is a comforting and sentimental thought.

But sometimes life has different plans for us. Unfortunately, the destruction of this ideal has wrought untold amounts of misery in people’s lives that I have witnessed firsthand. Sometimes soul mates are there for only a season, and sometimes they are there for a lifetime. But whatever the case, enjoy the ride.

12. There is the possibility to find multiple soulmates –

Although most people only tend to find one person with who they are deeply compatible. I personally have never had more than one soul mate/twin flame, so I can’t speak from experience. But I have known other people who have claimed to have had multiple profound relationships.

Do We ALL Have Soulmates?

This is a difficult question to answer because it depends on your level of soulful maturity. Can a reactive, materialistic and self-hating person stuck in old patterns of dogmatic belief and fear-driven world perceptions find a soul mate? It isn’t likely. Why?

Because in order to authentically give love, you must first have some amount of self-love. And in order to welcome the unsettling changes and ego-dissolution that soul mates bring, you need to be in an open-minded, receptive, and trusting place.

I believe that everyone has at least one soul friend in life, and we all have many soul teachers (discover what soul friends and teachers are here), but soul mates …? Attracting a person into your life who is genuinely compatible with you requires inner work.

How can you discover who your soul mate is without first knowing who you really are and what you really want out of life deep down? You’ll always be scrambling around in the dark.

This is the precise reason why so many people struggle to find “The One” in their lives: because of their abject lack of self-knowledge, understanding, and love. So many of us carry this belief that someone or something else outside of ourselves will “complete us” when all along the answers lie within us. Soul mates just help us to realize this by opening our hearts through the power of love.

So my answer is this: we all have the opportunity to find soulmates, but we don’t always have the capacity. How can I understand what a soul mate is if I don’t yet have an understanding of the soul? How can I experience the unconditional love of a soul mate union when I continue to hate myself and other people?

Of course, I’m not saying that you have to be perfect or enlightened to find your soul mate, but you do need to be actively undergoing the process of spiritual evolution.

Our mindsets and our values determine our reality.

If I have the mindset of being poor and destitute, my emotional life will reflect that. If I value fame, status, and money, my reality will reflect that whether it be through my big million-dollar mansion or my impoverished relationships – or both.

Conclusion

You may or may not have the capacity to find a soul mate at the moment, I don’t know. But if you’re pretty confident that you do have the capacity – keep holding on to that confidence. Sometimes life makes us wait for reasons beyond our comprehension, but the reasons are always wise and for our own good.

On the other hand, if you don’t feel as though you have the capacity to find a soul mate at the moment, don’t fret. As I said above, you can soulfully mature through the process of cultivating self-love, understanding, and acceptance. This will open the door to many exciting possibilities in your life.

Finally, don’t overlook the possibility that you may have already found your soul mate! I have known quite a few people who for many years were completely oblivious to the fact that they had already found “The One.”

Unfortunately, they were continuing to chase useless, unrealistic ideals that blinded them to the beauty of what they had. So remember to investigate whether your soul mate is already in your life right now, right underneath your nose!

Why don’t you share with me below your own experience of finding – or not finding – your soul mate? Do you have any tips or recommendations of your own?
