10 Signs That Your Souls Are Meant To Be Together

Falling in love is a funny thing. It can happen slowly or all at once. There’s whirlwind love that hits you fast and hard but can leave just as quickly as it arrived. Then there’s the subtle kind of love that sneaks up on you and takes over little by little until before you know it, you’re totally consumed. However you happen to fall in love with someone, it can be tricky to decipher if your souls are meant to be together. Here are a few ways that you can tell if this love that you have is the forever and ever kind of love that’s meant to be.

  1. You’ve crossed paths before. If this person has come into your life before and you thought you wouldn’t see them again but then by some stroke of fate they appear, it could be a sign that your souls are just meant to be together. Destiny is a funny little thing. Divine timing can put us at exactly the right place at the right time even if the circumstances are totally bizarre and unexpected. So, if you don’t have to chase someone and they just magically appear in your life again at exactly the perfect time, there’s a chance that your souls are meant to be.
  2. They get you like no one else can. Your soulmate will understand you in a way no one else can. They’ll get your dreams and the things that you love. They’ll understand what makes you mad and sad and they’ll always respect your feelings. It can be so difficult to find someone that truly understands you so if you find someone who does, there’s a pretty good chance that your souls are meant to be.
  3. Their pain becomes your pain. True love makes us empaths. When your soulmate, the person you love most in this world is hurting, the pain will become indistinguishable to your own pain. When something bad happens to them, you’ll feel like it’s happening to you too. You’ll celebrate in their joy as well as cry in their misery and struggle. It’s a heavy cross to bear but it’s also a sign that your souls are aligned in a way that just makes sense.
  4. The thought of losing them is unbearable. When your soul is meant to be with someone’s the idea of not having them in your life will feel like a knife to the chest. Just the idea that you might lose them will be completely unbearable. It’s not just the thought of being alone or not having a partner. It’s specifically the idea that you might lose them because they’re irreplaceable to you.
  5. You can clearly see a future with them in it. If you think about all of the things that you want for your life and that person just seems to seamlessly fit into your version of a perfect world so effortlessly, there’s a good chance that your souls are meant to be together. Sure, their dreams might differ slightly from yours and it might require some compromise as all relationships do but if you can easily imagine them fitting into your life and they can imagine you fitting into yours, it could just be meant to be.
  6. You balance each other perfectly. It’s true what they say that opposites attract. Soulmates can also be similar in personality as well as different from each other but the point is, you balance each other out. You make up for the things that the other lacks and vice versa. The two of you are the perfect blend of each other’s good and bad qualities and you just make each other work perfectly. Soulmates fit each other like pieces of a puzzle.
  7. They feel like home. When you meet someone who makes you feel like you’ve just come home and you don’t have to worry about anything else, that is an incredibly special person that you should hold onto. It’s one thing to like a person or even love them but a soulmate is someone who you feel safe with. With them is your favorite place in the world to be. It doesn’t even matter where you are because they’re your home.
  8. They make you feel unstoppable. A true soulmate that you’re meant to be with will always make you feel like nothing is impossible. It’s easy to get discouraged and to feel depressed and down when life throws you curveballs. If your person is the one to always pick you up, tell you to keep going, and make you feel like the world is your oyster then there’s a good chance your souls are meant to be together forever.
  9. They make you calm. Soulmates have a way of making us feel at rest and at peace even in the most stressful and chaotic of times. It doesn’t necessarily mean that your person is constantly calm and you’re not, it just means that they have an effect on you that makes you feel safe and at ease. It’s a tough world out there and there are going to be times when you break down and will feel like you’re losing your mind. There’s no way around the struggles but if your person can always be the one to ground you and remind you that it’s all going to be okay, your souls are just meant to be together.
  10. You just feel it. I don’t know how else to phrase it. You’ll just feel it. When your soul is perfectly aligned with someone and you’re meant to be together, you’ll just feel it and so will they. Sometimes it’s frustrating to go off just your feelings because in a world where so much is uncertain, I get it. We want proof. We want data. We want a sign. Anything. The truth is though, that your gut instinct is stronger than any other proof out there. So, if you feel like your soul is meant to be with someone, just take a chance and see where it goes. I can’t guarantee it’ll work out forever but you can’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
