Is It a Past Life Relationship?
If you have experienced a relationship, which causes you to say to yourself, “I’ve never felt this way with anyone before”, this could be a sign of a past-life connection. But please consider, just because you have had a past life with someone, doesn’t mean they will be the best romantic partner in this life.
You will feel this strong connection very early on, and the physical chemistry between you will be very intense. Bu this strong connection and physical attraction is not a sign you are meant to be together romantically in this lifetime. The chemistry you feel could be a buildup of spiritual energy between your two souls, over several lifetimes.
Have I Met My Soul Mate?
We make soul agreements before we are born, to have long and productive relationships with certain people in this life. Soul mates can be friends, teachers, family members or romantic partners. We can have more than one romantic soul mate during our lifetime, or we may have a few, who appear at the predestined and appropriate times in our life. If you have a romantic soul mate, treasure them.
A soul mate feel like home; they make you feel like you belong, and accept you, with all your faults and issues. Soul mates will stick together through the good times, and the hard times. Soul mates should not only support you, but also challenge you, to bring out your best.
What is a Twin Flame?
The theory is that each soul has a “twin”. This twin will be the yin to your yang; so if you are a pessimist, your twin flame will have a strong sense of optimism. Twin flames will trigger each other, bringing aspects that are in the shadow into the light. For instance, if you have abandonment issues that have manifest in codependence, your twin flame will be very independent, triggering your abandonment issues, and bringing it to the surface for healing.
The concept of twin flames can make you believe there is only one person, who will be able to fulfill you romantically. But don’t let the concept of a “perfect” twin flame cause you to not to get out into the real world, and date. Perfect relationships do not exist, and believing that they do can be self-sabotaging. You don’t need anyone to complete you, or your soul. We can believe the idea that a perfect romantic partner is our “other half,” and the answer to all our prayers, but that is not true!
What Can You Learn from Relationships That Don’t Work Out?
Have you ever dated someone for a few months, or even a few years, and later wondered to yourself, “What was that all about? What if I had just called it quits after our second date?” Many times when a relationship ends, you knew from the beginning that something was “off”, or “not right”.
Look at these relationships not as a mistake, or a waste of time, but as “teachable moments.” There are always lessona to be learned from a relationship. Honor your feelings, stand up for yourself, get over your fear of being alone, and be willing to wait for something better.
If you’ve recently left a relationship, and have no clue as to why you got in or stayed in that relationship, take out your journal, and ask yourself questions like, “Was there a subconscious pattern to this relationship?” “What was I looking for, or what problem was I trying to solve with this person?” “What did I learn from this relationship, that I will use in my next relationship?”” What was my real motivation for staying in this relationship?” “What made it hard for me to walk away from this relationship?” “Who was I trying to please?”
How to Partner with the Universe With Your Love Life
You can always ask the Universe for a sign, and ask for guidance to find a compatible partner, or even to improve your current relationship. Don’t believe you are “destined” to be alone. If you are happy being single, that’s great. But if you’d like to be in a relationship, know that there is someone out there for you. The universe will give you as many chances at romance as we are willing to take!
