You will have a soul connection to many people. We can have soul connections to friends, a co-workers, family members and of course romantic partners. A soul connection to a romantic partner does not automatically mean it’s a soulmate relationship. But there certainly is the potential for it to be one.
A soul connection is not a fated or predestined encounter. But still they are important to the evolution of our souls. Soulmate relationships have a sense of fate and destiny. And they are preordained and contracted before we were born. You may have a soul connection with someone, but they may not be a soulmate. They’re still very important for the evolution of your soul as they most surely provide opportunities for personal and spiritual growth.
HOW IT FEELS TO BE CONNECTED
Soul connections feel electrifying. Sparks will fly and you will feel a deep bond with that other person. Problems and issues you need to address will be highlighted and brought to the surface, so you can address them. This of course is very similar to lessons in soulmate relationships. Sometimes these lessons will be difficult. Just because the connection is electrifying, it will not advance it to soulmate relationship status.
Please bear in mind not all soul connections, or soulmate relationships for that matter, will be difficult. Sometimes they will be easy. And the corresponding life lessons will be easy as well. Just because we have a difficult relationship with someone, it doesn’t automatically imply we are connected to them.
This is how many people justify staying in a dysfunctional relationship. By saying they have a soul connection they believe they must suffer for that relationship. But sometimes a duck is just a duck. Do not allow yourself to get caught in the trap of allowing your romantic partner to mistreat you just because you believe it’s a soul connection.
So many times we have hear how people are suffering in their relationships. And more often than not it’s because the other person does not acknowledge their connection. Just because you believe there’s a soul connection does not mean they will. And explaining it to them will be a waste of time. More than likely they will run for the hills.
There may be times when both of you will not be able to honor the connection. There will be times when only one of you may feel it or be aware of it. If the other party refuses to accept it, there is really nothing you can do about it but move on. And while that may be difficult, it is the lesson that is important.

These connections can be energetically intense. And at times the other party may decide to move on because they can’t handle the energetic imprint. When this happens it’s very important to focus on yourself rather than allow yourself to get stuck in a cycle of obsession. Look at what they brought into your life.
Were they a catalyst for change? Did you modify some aspect of yourself as a result of having them in your life? Are you doing different things than you did before you met them? A soul connection may not stay our lives for a lifetime. So we should be grateful of what they have given us and allow them to move on. Even if they return at a later date, it is important to acknowledge these lessons now.
It is important to consider that you must work on your own issues through this connection. It’s not your responsibility to show the other all their faults and weaknesses so they can address them. Always remember to work on yourself first. They will work on themselves when they are ready to. By focusing on yourself you are honoring your sacred contract and doing what you are supposed to do.
A soul connection is karmic in nature and you will become a better person as a result of it. It may not be all sunshine and roses while you address the things within yourself. But on the other side of it you will have evolved and grown both spiritually and personally.
