3 Types of Soulmate Connection – What You Should Know
“Losing through you what seemed myself, I find selves unimaginably mine…” sums up how our Soulmates help us to learn and grow in love, joy, and awareness.
This is why the drive for union with one’s “Soulmate” is so compelling, and so universal. To properly understand how our Soulmates effect us, we must first understand the types of “soulmates” that we will encounter in our journey as Soul.
Here are the Types of Soulmates:
1. Partners in Hate: Believe it or not, those that you hate with all the intensity of your being are one group of your soulmates. Those we hate are our soulmates in the sense that they continually cross our soul’s path life after life. For it is the hatred for one another that sticks you together like glue until you can understand and release the hate that binds you. Many times we hate in others what we really hate in ourselves. Those we hate actually help us to embrace those aspects of our character that we find it hard to love.
2. Partners in Love: Those we love in even the smallest degree are another group of our soulmates. Again these become our soulmates because of the love binding us together. Our partners in love – and hate – most often come to us as parents, siblings, spouses, and children. They serve to remind us about those aspects of our character that we should love and cherish. For it is all too easy to “eliminate the positive, and accentuate the negative” while we are here on Earth. Those we love show us what we should love in ourselves.
3. The One and Only: When people commonly yearn for their Soulmate, what they are really yearning for is “the one and only” person who can make them complete. This is their “twin flame” or “Bashert” (the Hebrew word meaning one’s predestined mate). When we are with our “Bashert”, we realize that we are “two halves of the same person”. Our “Bashert” gives us the opportunity to grow in love like no other person can. So when we speak of how “our soulmates can help us”, we are referring to how our “Bashert” can help us grow as Soul.
