Soulmates separate for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they reunite, at other times the separation is permanent. Every soulmate relationship is different but the common ground they share is that they all posses a certain intense connection. It is quite common with soulmate relationships for there to be a period of separation between the two. There are misconceptions when it comes to soulmates, and these separations tend to come with shock and surprise. So why do soulmates separate?
One reason soulmates separate is they came together at an inopportune time. For instance, one or both partners may be in marriages or relationships at the time they meet. There may be a need for a separation to end current relationships so they can be free to pursue their soulmate
2. Intense connection
The intensity of the connection may prove to be too overwhelming for some people. A soulmate connection is not something you understand until you’ve experienced it. This intensity may cause soulmates to separate for a time until they’re ready to accept and deal with a deep spiritual union.
3. Individual lessons
The lessons some soulmates need to learn must be learned apart. And not while together in a soulmate relationship. They need to have life lessons and experiences for their personal growth which can’t be accomplished while in the relationship. They need to do this alone.
Another reason soulmates separate is because soulmate relationships bring out the best, or the worst, in couples. Soulmates serve as a mirror. And they reflect back to us the things within our lives or character we must work on to live more authentically. This is hard as most of us to don’t like to see our reflections through our soulmate’s eyes. Sometimes the damage and drama is so overwhelming that a break or separation is necessary.
5. Doesn’t believe in soulmates
Not everyone believes in the concept of soulmates nor are they searching for one. When faced with a soul connection, and the fear of losing control of guarded emotions, they bolt. They refuse to acknowledge soulmates exist and do everything they can to disprove it. Although they’re well aware they feel the connection. But they just don’t understand what it is. Better be safe by running, than be sorry they gave in to their emotions and embrace their soulmate. They often turn their back on the relationship and seek out something more “safe”. It’s more comfortable to be in a relationship where there’s very little risk.
6. Overanalyzing everything
Some soulmates over analyze every little fight or spat. This can make mountains out of mole hills. Most soulmates experience very high highs, and very low lows. And this can make them appear to be bipolar. When the connection is flowing well and all is groovy, they’re on top of their game. When there are problems in the relationship, they sink to the depths of despair. And some will totally disconnect from their daily lives. A little argument can easily end up being an epic battle that gets completely out of control. Soulmates have a hard time finding middle ground and may very well separate during these lows.
Unrealistic expectations will come with soulmate relationships. It’s extremely rare to find a perfectly blissful soulmate union. And these couples are usually more volatile than mundane relationships. We often see unrealistic expectations materialize the minute someone believes they find their soulmate. After just one date they’re very often planning a wedding. Or they’re looking forward to a life of eternal bliss in perfect harmony. They’re completely devastated at the first sign of trouble because they expect this union to be perfect. This may lead them to believe this is a false soulmate connection and decide to separate.
8. Completing karmic journey
Soulmates separate because their karmic journey together is complete. You have done what was required of you and now it’s time to move on. Soulmates come together for a reason or a season but very rarely a lifetime. They challenge us, force us to grow, serve as a catalyst to create change or put us on the path of spirituality. When the lesson has been achieved the reason for having the soulmate in your life comes to an end. Maybe you feel the lesson hasn’t been completed. If so it’s possible it involves how you handle soulmate separation.
9. Taking a time out
Sometimes separating from your soulmate is the best thing you can do. If they’ve been abusing your connection and your love taking a break will restore your self-respect. Many times soulmates need to separate just to give the relationship a chance to succeed. Separation will give you distance and space from each other. Many soulmates feel the need to hang on, or insist they can’t let go, because of the intense connection. But it’s is crucial for you to take a break before more damage is done.
10. Fears and insecurities
The Universe may separate you so you to reveal issues you should address. For instance, if you have trust issues, your soulmate may get a six month temporary job assignment in another country. You’re being shown, by the Universe, now is the time to deal with your trust issues. This is very important for your own personal development and soul refinement. It’s up to you to create a change within yourself instead of letting this issue cause problems in your relationship.
Soulmate separations are a very challenging time. During these difficult periods the best course of action is to focus on yourself. Focus on your spiritual journey and personal growth. Dwelling on your soulmate will be counterproductive and you could find yourself in the deep, dark abyss of soulmate obsession. This will not help you or your relationship.
