“You have to be in touch with your soul, to meet your soulmate.”
Most females reading this quote will automatically respond with a “yaassssssss” but do you really understand what it means?
My problem could be that I read too deeply into pretty much everything, but I believe it’s important to read between the lines. For starters, our good friend Google defines a soulmate as –
A person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.
The Urban Dictionary defines a soulmate as –
a person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet.
A soulmate may be better defined as –
The person in which you experience an emotional, mental, and most importantly a spiritual connection with. It also ties into the the belief that there is one specific person for everybody, i.e.: The One.
The soul is to the heart what the mind is to the brain. With that being said, if you believe you think with your brain, you will never understand what it means to find a soulmate.
Now, when I say spiritual it does not have to be in a religious sense, but instead it’s the idea that connections and attractions amongst people are not ones that can’t always be seen, identified or even explained. To be connected with your soul means you have learned and embraced who you are on the inside. (Please be aware that nothing I mention is in the physical sense of the word i.e.: inside.) Genuine characteristics are generated from within as in, something that moves you doesn’t have to literally make you cry, but touches your soul. Once you have connected with that person, behind the make up, way past the mirror, that girl you hide from common folk, your energy will attract that person that sees you in your natural light and your true essence.
Here are 3 steps that will help lead you to your soulmate:
1. Meditation – It may sound cliché but 10-15 minutes out of the 24 hour day to connect with your spirit will help you tap into who you truly are. The moment you “face yourself” and peel back layers you have been avoiding, you’ll be on the right path.
2. Patience – Once you’ve started the journey to learning yourself, understand that anything worth having is worth waiting for. Mr. Right may not be right outside your door after your meditation session, so don’t go assuming every man you like is your soulmate. Timing is important when determining when to let someone in, or when’s the right time to translate your essence into the world.
3. Acceptance – Lastly, accept the connection that (like mentioned earlier) can’t always be seen, identified or even explained. In other words, the best relationships stem from the moments we have no control over. This time, just go with the flow instead for trying to understand every aspect and detail of the situation. Your souls will connect subconsciously and only then is when you’ve found The One.
So yes, after all of that it is true – You have to be in touch with your soul to meet your soulmate.
