Soulmate lessons are a requirement for all soulmate relationships. Many clients have asked us what soulmate lessons they must learn because they want to speed the process. Unfortunately, there is no cheat sheet for soulmate lessons. The universe wants each soulmate to take a long, hard look at themselves and tackle each lesson as it arrives. The lessons do not come all at once, they come gradually, after time. So the specific lessons for each member of soulmate couples can greatly differ. But there seem to be a few common soulmate lessons we want to share with you.
ACCEPTING THE CONNECTION
The first lesson we will address is acceptance of the connection. Many soulmates freak out, often causing one of them to run, due to the intensity of the connection. They often deny it verbally, and with their actions. They may try to break the connection. And they will act out to test the connection. At some point, for the relationship to move forward on a higher level, the connection must be accepted. When that happens, the person has evolved spiritually.
The second lesson that seems quite common is learning how to properly deal with the soulmate connection. As we have written about in another article, a soulmate connection can be both a blessing and a curse. When you accept the connection, you should have faith in it. You shouldn’t fear it. You need to handle the connection coming from a place of strength, not weakness. To clarify, you can’t let your fears of losing your soulmate allow you to sink to lower level behavior.
If you accept the connection as a spiritual one, why would you think the universe would support either one of you doing the wrong things, such as disrespecting each other, or allowing yourselves to be disrespected? It won’t. So don’t allow fear to keep you from enforcing boundaries and standing up for yourself. Also, don’t think you can get away with bad behavior or that your soulmate will always let you get away with it. You don’t want to learn that lesson the hard way. The universe doesn’t want either of you to hurt one another within the connection. Nor does it want you to accept being hurt for no reason.
BE OPEN TO CHANGE
Another common lesson is that both soulmates have to be open to change. This is a new kind of relationship, and you can’t bring your old behaviors and insecurities along with you. Your past needs to be left in the past. And you have to let go of bad relationship patterns of behavior you learned along your journey. The universe gave you a soulmate so you could have something different, something better. Not the same old craziness you created with your past relationships. It’s not up to the universe to do it for you. It will take some soul-searching on your part to keep yourself in check.
IT’S A BALANCING ACT
Another really important lesson is to learn balance. From what we have seen, it is common for one soulmate to be more evolved and grounded than the other. It seems when one soulmate is further ahead on their spiritual awakening and acceptance of the connection, all the attention goes to the other soulmate. You can’t learn their lessons for them, and you can’t coddle them too much either.
Yes you can be supportive, but you shouldn’t lose sight of yourself and revolve your life around your soulmate while they are on learning their lessons. Otherwise, the relationship becomes very one-sided. And this creates a whole new series of lessons to be learned on both sides. Save yourself the time, energy and effort. And make sure to try to create and keep a balance early on.
There are as many different lessons as there are soulmate couples, but these are a few that seem to affect most partners. What lessons did you are your soulmate have to learn? Comment down below!
