There are so many people today on a quest to find their soulmate. There are even internet dating sites dedicated to helping people find their soulmates. For many people, no ordinary relationship will do, and they will not stop searching until they have found the soulmate partner. On the flip side, however, there are just as many people who don’t believe soulmates exist. Their perception is that soulmates are something written about in romance novels or the characters in romantic movies.
Do you believe in soulmates? Should you believe in soulmates?
It really is up to the individual. Many people who never even considered finding a true soulmate became true believers once they experienced a soulmate connection. For someone who thinks soulmates are nothing more than New Age airy-fairy mumbo jumbo find themselves actually stunned when they have that first encounter with a true soulmate energy. The intensity of the connection can knock them off their feet. The emotional tidal wave is like nothing they have experienced before. The feeling of familiarity and comfort with someone they have just met makes no sense. The chemistry is so overwhelming it makes them feel weak at the knees and out of control. They finish each other sentences and are amazed at how it all just clicks.
Because the experience of meeting a soulmate was so unexpected, denial can set in. Instead of believing a soulmate is now in their lives, they try to deny the connection at all costs. They still refuse to believe in soulmates and completely deny the connection, even to themselves. Quite often when soulmates do encounter one another, only one of them can believe soulmates exist.
There is nothing wrong with believing you will meet your soulmate one day. Leaving yourself open to the arrival of your soulmate is the best approach. Just keep in mind the universe is not a fast-food restaurant where you can order your soulmate and have them delivered in minutes. It is on the universe’s timetable, not yours. When the universe feels the time is right they will orchestrate the meeting.
So many people get frustrated waiting for a soulmate partner to enter their lives. They lose patience and either decide every person they meet is a soulmate or stop believing in soulmates all together. Don’t let that happen to you. Don’t confuse the emotional roller coaster of a dysfunctional relationship with a soulmate relationship. Both have intense emotions, out of control thoughts and fears, drama, and issues. Yes, soul mate relationships can be dysfunctional, but not every dysfunctional relationship is with a soulmate. A bad experience in a toxic relationship can make someone no longer believe soulmates are real or that they will never find theirs. A negative viewpoint of relationships in general or previous bad experiences can prevent someone from believing in soulmates and actually block a soulmate energy from entering their life.
Once you have met your soulmate, you may find many of your friends and family members believe the concept of soulmates is a bunch of nonsense. They don’t understand any of the emotions or experiences you try to describe to them. They begin to you question your sanity, and after a while, you may question it yourself. Many people, who have become believers in soulmates have at one point questioned their beliefs because it seems no one understands what they are going through. The only way the will is to experience it themselves.
The bottom line? You don’t have to believe in soulmates to encounter one. But if and when you do, it will make a believer out of you.
