On the physical plane most soulmate relationships end but they can transform into different types of relationship within both the current and future lifetimes. When we are talking about soulmates, in the true sense of the word, the relationship is endless. A soulmate relationship is eternal, and soulmates will incarnate with each other over and over again in an effort to attain the life lessons they have with one another. But.. do they really.. do soulmate relationships end?
The true nature of a soulmate relationship is a karmic one and during a soulmate reading we can very quickly tune into the soulmate contract and karmic nature of your relationship. When we have karmic relationships, whether they be kindred spirit relationships, soulmate relationships or twin flame relationships, we are called to learn and grow from that relationship in an effort to produce a soul evolution.
We revisit these same relationships lifetime after lifetime to ensure the growth is there. This is why, when you meet a soulmate, but more specifically a romantic soulmate, you have that feeling of instant attraction, love at first sight or the sense you have known this person before. Actually you have known them before just not in this lifetime. It is a past life recognition or soul level recognition that creates that feeling or connection when you meet a soulmate.
Since you incarnate with these same souls who are really members from your soul family over and over again the soulmate relationship is truly endless. You may be in a romantic relationship with them in this lifetime but that does not indicate you will always manifest as romantic soulmates, life after life. You may be brother – sister soulmates in one lifetime, mother – son soulmates the next lifetime or teacher – student soulmates in another lifetime. Regardless of the nature of the relationship the soulmate relationship exists by its mere definition… soulmates.
Many people call us who are currently involved in soulmate relationships or who have recently seen their soulmate relationships end. They are seeking clarity for issues that present themselves during the course of the soulmate relationship. These problems, issues and crises you have with your soulmate, however, are by definition the very reason you are having the soulmate relationship. Sometimes it can cause a break in the soulmate relationship so each of you can go and learn what needs to be learned as stated in your soulmate agreement or soulmate contract. Being in a break period from your soulmate can be very difficult. You can feel a great deal of pain which you will more than likely define as suffering. Being separated from your soulmate can create a great deal of anxiety which we call Soulmate Separation Anxiety.
It is your job and challenge, if you are truly living from the perspective of your eternal soul, to work through that Soulmate Separation Anxiety and stay in your power. It could just be a period of time needs to pass so that you can each learn your respective life lessons individually before the soulmate relationship can continue. Separations from your soulmate, once you have found them, are the greatest opportunities for spiritual growth.
Unfortunately we do not learn spiritual lessons when things are going great in our lives, well most of us don’t because we are not highly evolved enough. Sadly we learn through pain, like learning how to not touch the stove because it will burn. This is the horrible experience that must be endured when soulmate relationships end. Pain brings growth, emotionally and spiritually. If you are in a break from your soulmate, learn the lesson you need to learn and you have a greater potential for the soulmate relationship to come back together.
And be patient! Sometimes it can take a long time for the soulmates to come back together, but it is all part of the process. We have seen many soulmate breakups reconnect 10, 15, 20 years later to produce wonderful long-lasting relationships. The truth of the matter is that you have no control over it so you might as well be patient anyway. And more than likely, patience, which is one of the most difficult life lessons to learn, is the lesson you are currently experiencing.
More often than not, when soulmate relationships end, it is permanent. So to answer the question from a different perspective, there is not guarantee from God, the Angels, Goddess or soulmate fairies that a soulmate relationship is permanent. For the fortunate few however they can be. We have seen some soulmate relationships that continue for the remainder of their lives. We have some friends who were high school sweethearts, who married very young, and today, 30-years later they are still together. Their soulmate contract with each other indicated that their life lessons encompassed being in a relationship for their entire adult lives. For most of us though, that is simply not to be.
When your soulmate relationship comes to an end it can be a very disruptive experience psychologically, emotionally and even spiritually. It is truly a “Dark Night of the Soul” experience and it will take you some time to get through and work through all the feelings and emotions you have concerning the ending of the relationship. But remember we have to have these dark nights so we can fully embrace and experience the true light!
When you have learned what you contracted to learn with your soulmate and that soulmate agreement or soulmate contract is complete, there is no spiritual need for the relationship to continue. Now we understand you may want it to continue because you do truly feel a deep connection to that person but from the perspective of the evolution of your soul, it is time to move on and grow and evolve in another direction. Many people have experienced several soulmate relationships in their lifetimes and each one of them brought with it vast experiences and insights that have put them in the place they are today. They are much higher evolved versions of themselves, which they would not be without the painful person growth.
When soulmate relationships end, people can become very depressed and detached from life. They can stop doing all the things they are supposed to do such as paying bills, going to work, being around family, bathing and cleaning the house. The challenge is to stay in your power and continue to be a productive living, breathing, bathing human. Try to stop this from sending you into a downward spiral of obsession and fantasy. Try to see what you learned from it, embrace it, heal from it and move on.
