« Les âmes planifient des rencontres importantes bien avant que les corps ne se rencontrent. » ~ Paul Coelho
La plupart d’entre nous ont rencontré beaucoup d’âmes différentes au cours de notre vie. Tous ont un sens profond, une connectivité intense et un impact profond sur nos vies.
Certaines âmes sœurs restent pour toujours et certaines partent plus rapidement que nous le leur demandons. Ce que certains d’entre nous éprouvent difficilement, c’est de ressentir ce lien profond et profond avec un autre, puis de devoir accepter que leur but dans la vie a été servi et qu’il est temps de le laisser partir.
Toutes les âmes sœurs ne sont pas faites pour se sentir bien «nous sommes tombés amoureux de l’instant où nos yeux se sont croisés et nous nous aimerons jusqu’à la fin des temps». Il existe de nombreux autres types d’âmes sœurs, des personnes qui viennent uniquement dans le but de nous apprendre quelque chose, certaines pour séparer notre vie et nous rediriger vers un endroit différent, et d’autres qui nous passent des moments très brefs tout en tirant sur nos cœurs. si on les connait depuis toujours.
Voici quelques-unes des âmes sœurs que j’ai rencontrées dans la mienne (à l’exception de la dernière), toutes captivantes, mémorables et absolument nécessaires à la croissance de mon âme:
1) âme soeur (ami)
Sometimes we meet a person and just click from the moment we lay eyes on each other. It’s as if we’ve known them our entire life, even if we’ve only known them a few minutes.
You tell each other everything. You could talk to this person for hours on end and never get bored. You share everything about yourself and they don’t judge you. These types of soulmates actually know you better than you know yourself, which is why they are extremely important in your life. They “get you” in ways nobody else does and help you navigate your way through all of life’s trials and triumphs.
The friendship soulmate is a gift and one you should treasure your entire life. Because they are here to stay.
2) The Wrecking Ball Soulmate
“Soulmates aren’t the ones who make you happiest, no. They’re instead the ones who make you feel the most. Burning edges and scars and stars. Old pains and pangs, captivation and beauty. Strain and shadows and worry and yearning. Sweetness and madness and dreamlike surrender. They hurl you into the abyss. They taste like hope.” ~ Victoria Erickson
This soulmate is not somebody that comes into our life peacefully. They enter in to shake things up. They challenge us and make us question everything we thought we knew about life. There is a clear “before them” and “after them” distinction when we look back on our lives and realize that we are now a completely different person than the day we met them.
This type of soulmate can come in many forms but it’s normally a romantic relationship that leaves us feeling as if we’ve been swept up like a tornado, taken for the ride of our life, and then dumped from the sky with no warning in an exhausted, tailspun heap.
Despite feeling like we don’t know what the hell happened since the ride was so fun when it first started, the beauty of this type of soulmate is that like a tornado hitting and leaving mass wreckage behind, we’re forced to rebuild from the ground up and can now make our new home (US) anything we want.
And most people rebuild something completely different and way more beautiful than what existed before.
3) The Lover/Affair Soulmate
These people don’t stay in our lives forever, but they come in as a lover and typically take on the form of a really beautiful relationship for a period of time. They might be our first love, an affair we had while being with someone else, or simply a lover who we had a no-strings-attached unconventional relationship with.
These soulmates are meant to be in our lives for a certain period of time to teach us about ourselves and other important lessons that will be poignant and meaningful down the road. Typically these types of relationships don’t start off with that “instant connection, butterflies in the stomach” feeling that we think we should feel with a potential partner, but over time it builds and the relationship turns into something serious and meaningful.
Soulmates like this often stay on good terms and become friends after their relationship ends, both realizing and acknowledging how much the other person taught them. Therefore that “soul connection” lasts a lifetime even though the romantic love portion of the dynamic fades.
4) Complete Stranger Soulmate
This is always a very brief encounter with somebody you don’t know. It might be the person you sat next to on a flight for a few hours, someone you meet and spend time with one evening at a party, or as brief as a stranger whose eyes yours meet on the street and you exchange just a few words with.
Typically the feeling is, “Oh! I recognize you!” Almost as if you’ve seen them before and are remembering them but can’t place where. If you believe in past lives, it’s typically because you are recognizing them as someone who truly is from your past.
The exchange is brief but intimate. They normally say something that you need to hear in that moment, validate something that you’ve been feeling or push you in a direction you need to go but are afraid. You know in the depths of your soul the encounter meant something even though you never see them again.
5) Divine Love Soulmate:
“You felt familiar the moment I met you. A lovely sort of déjà vu. When we spoke or laughed or danced I became overwhelmed by the powerful sensation that I had been here before. And when we kissed I felt the energies of a thousand lives on our lips, like our souls had known each other all along.” ~ Beau Taplin
This is the soulmate that every one of us desires to have. And if we’re lucky enough, we will meet them and live out the rest of our days on this earth together.
They encompass all of the above… the familiarity, the feeling of having known them for an entire lifetime moments after meeting them, the intense bond and connection that never goes away, the deep friendship, and the extraordinary, enchanted, deep-seated love.
