A soulmate connection is both a blessing and a curse.
If you’re in a soulmate relationship it’s hard to get your soulmate out of your thoughts.
On any given day your soulmate could be the furthest thing from their mind. Then out of the blue, you’re inundated with thoughts of them.
Even when trying to keep your soulmate out of your mind by focusing your attention on other things, thoughts continue to flood in. Those of you who share this experience will agree when we say it is both a blessing and a curse.
A SOULMATE CONNECTION IS EMPATHIC
Empathy is the ability to share and experience the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another. An empathic soulmate connection is very different from the spiritual one, because it’s based on feelings.
While dealing with this some of you may think you’re going insane. You can feel completely out of control when it comes to the strong emotions you feel for a soulmate. But what you fail to realize is the emotions come from your soulmate via this empathic soulmate connection.
For example, you could be having a wonderful day where everything is just going right and then BAM! Suddenly you find yourself crying uncontrollably with no idea why. You feel sad, gloomy or depressed but are unable to locate the cause of your melancholy. There’s absolutely no reason for you downer mood, but you certainly have one.
When you have an empathic connection with your soulmate, you pick up their feelings as well. They come out of nowhere and come on strong. It’s your way of reading their emotions by feeling them yourself.
If a soulmate relationship is on the right track, this can be a wonderful thing. You’ll sense your soulmate’s mood and emotions. This allows you to offer support, humor or strength to them without them having to ask. You will know instinctively what they need from you.
If your soulmate relationship is rocky, this empathic soulmate connection can really drive you crazy.
IS THE EMOTION YOURS OR THEIRS?
If you’re an emotional and compassionate person to begin with, you’ll have an empathic connection with your soulmate. First and foremost, to get it under control and in the right perspective, you have to call it for what it is. It’s not yours!
So when a sudden flow of emotion comes on, don’t just go with it. Quickly ask yourself if these feelings are what you should be feeling right now. Try to see if they’re coming from somewhere else. Once you recognize what emotions don’t belong to you, you can keep them from overwhelming you. This allows you to know what your soulmate is feeling at that moment.
Instead of using it against yourself by going with the sadness and despair, you can use it for your own benefit. For instance, if you wonder how your soulmate is handling time away from you, the emotional roller coaster from hell you just felt is your answer.
Your soulmate is going through hell.
This may not be the way you want to find out how your soulmate feels. But as long as you use it for information, instead of letting it get to you, it won’t be so bad. With practice, you can learn to send it back to them.
When your soulmate sends you feelings you can’t handle or don’t want, send them back. Recognize the emotions you are feeling are not yours. Don’t accept them as your own. Have an internal dialogue where you send them back to your soulmate and let them go.
If your soulmate is resisting the connection between the two of you don’t act on those emotions being sent to you. Do not use them as an excuse to make contact. Consider this a gift from the universe. The powers that be are letting you know how your soulmate is doing, so leave it at that. Your soulmate must learn they have the power to stop feeling this way, gloomy and sad, by doing the right thing.
An empathic soulmate connection is another level of soulmate bonding. There is the good and the bad of it, like with everything else. Once you and your soulmate are on the right track, you’ll be very grateful for this gift.
