(Thinking Humanity) We usually find our soul mate, or spiritual partner, when we least expect it. Soul mates are those who mirror you, let you know your repetitive patterns, and help you go forward on your life’s journey. Being more aware of the various types of soul mates you’ll encounter in your life will help you take advantage of these opportunities and create deeper connections.
So, here are four types of soul mates and what you need to know about them:
1. Healing soul mates
These are the friends who arrive with an intention and provide you with useful life lessons that heal your memories by mirroring you. Healing soul mates appear by divine timing — by the time we most need them to teach us what they have to teach.
Those friends teach us how to move forward in life. A healing friendship exists only as long as you need it until your purposes are aligned.
When your relationship or friendship escalates fast, then you’ll know you’ve found a healing soulmate. This kind of friend usually shows up when you are facing repetitive patterns and trying to work through old issues.
To nurture this relationship, you have to remember it might not last. Like all relationships, it only works if both of you can respect and understand each other’s need for some space. The friendship might have many ups and downs; however, if you are able to take the good with the bad, this kind of relationship will be really fruitful.
2. Past-life soul mates
Either you do or don’t believe in past life when you meet this type of soul mate, you’ll experience a Deja Vu. You’ll feel like you’ve known them forever, so your relationship will feel really easy and comfortable. The connection is instant. You may feel like you will be mates for a lifetime — no matter how much time has passed or how far apart you are — and you’re probably right. This relationship will likely last forever because you will never feel the need to run or hide from this soul mate.
This relationship can be carefree, but they also shape you. They teach you to trust and believe in yourself. In this dynamic, both people will feel comfortable sharing anything with each other. Nothing is off limits. You’re both accepted for who you are.
This is the friend who’ll help you grow into the person you are meant to be. They can propel you towards your fate without pain or suffering. If you try to turn this relationship romantic, it might be impossible, as there’s usually no physical attraction, but mostly a desire to protect the friendship.
You’ll meet this type of person when you’re truly yourself. Past-life soul mates will show up when you’re in your element without holding anything back. They’ll always have your best interests at heart, and they won’t stop when asked to help you reach your goals.
This type of friendship can last a lifetime. You just need to stay connected. Check in by email or phone frequently, just to say you are thinking of them. This type of person comes in and out of your life when you need to be directed. They’ll always bring love and fun. They’ll help bring you to your inner desires. They’re crucial in shaping you into the best version of yourself.
3. Karmic soul mates
These mates could also be connected to you through a past life. Your connection is deep and karmic, and frequently painful, as it involves ego struggles. But the point is to feel this ego pain by working through your relationship and learning how to overcome all the difficulties.
Karmic soul mates usually have a twin like connection. When you express intense emotions, they actually feel what you feel. These mates have often been reincarnated to relive some karma in order to break a negative cycle.
Remember that you have to struggle to remove our ego if you want to sustain the relationship. Focus on the positive aspects, to draw positivity from this person. Think about what is best for the both of you. Don’t forget to give unconditional love and understanding to your soul mate. This will make them feel at ease.
4. Twin flames
Twin flames cooperate to overcome emotional and spiritual barriers. They could talk for hours without ever running out of things to discuss. They think in the same way, finish each other’s sentences, and enjoy doing things as a pair. This relationship can transcend the ego.
When you meet your twin flame, you’ll get a sense of wholeness. You won’t necessarily meet them as a lover, but if you do, you’ll enjoy this relationship for the rest of your lives.
Before long, twin flames begin to make collective decisions on almost everything.
The most critical aspect of a twin flame relationship is honesty. Nevertheless, relating to your twin flame comes easily and naturally. You can even communicate without words. When both are totally themselves, twin flames can overcome any barrier.
Just keep in mind that each of these soul mate relationships has the potential to end up in heartbreak. However, each one also offers a chance to resolve and change your relationship karma. Each relationship that you learn from is a success, even if you don’t end up together forever.
