Discover 7 Types Of Soulmates
There are 7 interesting types of soulmates we encounter, who travel
with us for various lengths of time. Some may stay for a month, some a
few years, and some for an entire lifetime if we are lucky.
Definition Of A Traditional Soulmate
Typically we think of soulmates
are belonging in romantic relationships, yet in reality many
people cross our path to teach us life lessons. They are considered
soulmates because we have known them before in another time and place.
We travel through many lifetimes with our set of close soulmates.
This means we meet them over and over again in many
different incarnations throughout different eras and locations.
When we end a relationship, or someone dear to us
passes over, we will see them again at some time in another place
they are a soulmate.
Sometimes we make a new friend who we have not shared past
life experience with. We can make brand new soulmate connections with
unfamiliar with, and this adds new zest to our soul journey.
Types Of Soulmate We Encounter
I've counted 7 different types of soulmates we, each with a different
role to play in our life. Since there is no specific length of time,
they may stay for a month or a lifetime. Some relationships are intense
whilst others are casual and fun. We learn more during intense
relationships and work harder on our growth. What each soulmate type
in common is that they
help us grow and they impart lessons. We do the same for them. Often
intense connections do not last beyond what we have come to learn.
Some soulmates can be included in more than one of these categories.
The seven types are:
- Friend Soulmate
- Teacher Soulmate
- Companion Soulmate
- Karmic Soulmate
- Twin Soul / Twin Flame
- New Soul Connection
- SOUL FAMILY Soulmate
1. Friend Soulmates
A friend is one of our most comfortable soulmate types, one we feel
most at ease with. We usually know our friends from past lives and we
get along well with them. They are people we can confide in, share a
mutual trust, respect and liking with.
These relationships are usually harmonious. Friend soulmates are in our
life because of their similarities such as shared beliefs,
attitudes, hobbies, likes and dislikes. Soul friends can however come
and go as we grow and change. When our beliefs or attitudes towards
life change too radically, friends can drift apart and no longer think
2. Teacher Soulmates
This type of soulmate is anyone who imparts a
lesson through a difficult situation created with them. This person may
or may not be a friend, for example, it could be a landlord, a work
colleague, a competitor, neighbour, or even the person who
crashes into your car. Whenever we need to learn a certain lesson (be
it to have more courage, patience or love etc) our
angels guide us to the perfect situation/person to help us learn
it. Note: not all difficult situations are lessons! Sometimes a person
can just screw us around and are not a planned soulmate teacher.
It is very common for family members to unwittingly be
soul teachers to each other. Friends may also fit into this category at
times. Don't forget that we too
are the soul teachers of
3. Companion Soulmates
This is the kind of soulmate that we traditionally associate with the
term; it is a deeper more intimate kind of soul relationship. Soul
companions are the ones we look to for a loving
relationship or friendship that is far deeper than what we have with
the soul friend. Whilst we get along famously with our soul friends on
a casual level, it is the soul companions in our lives who we relate to
deeply, and who mean more to us. We can have deep relationships with
family members, close friends, and lovers through marriage or
otherwise. Some people may marry casually to their soul friends (which
may mean a shorter marriage), whilst others wait for that deeper
connection that comes from the soul companion.
4. Karmic Soulmates
Karma can suggest trouble, and yes we encounter many karmic soulmates
who come to finish/balance past karma with us (old karma
from former life times with them). They may or may not be companion
soulmates also, since some of them come and go quickly.
Usually we can tell a karmic
soulmate within weeks of meeting them. Whilst we may have instant,
powerful attraction and relate fabulously, within a
very short time we trigger the karma in each other and begin to
clash, argue or create friction. Imagine dating a charming person and
becoming alarmingly close within weeks, only to suddenly start fighting
as though you have known each other for years. We fight hardest with
those who we have known longest, karmically speaking. Karma is
efficient and often triggered fast between two familiar souls who
reunite in this present lifetime.
soulmates can have any kind of relationship from colleague, to friend,
to lover. This is especially true of many love relationships however,
which are held together by intense attraction, yet underlying the
entire relationship are issues and problems that are very challenging.
Sometimes the karma is too intense and these relationships end badly.
Yet they give us a lot to contemplate over the years as we examine
how it all went wrong, how we can do better next time as the lesson is
imparted to us. Those who successfully complete the karma with their
soulmate often drift apart, for the sole reason for the joining has
5. The Twin Flame Reunion
We only have ONE unique twin flame who was created at the exact instant
from our larger oversoul. It is the one person who is our exact twin in
creation, the one we are spiritually married to for all time. Not all
twin flames incarnate at the same time, so not all people meet theirs,
although it is true that this era is unique in that a lot of twins are
incarnated and are meeting at this time. There are many articles on
this site devoted to twin flame relationships; a good place to start is
Twin Flame Reunion
6. New Soul Connection
We can have significant encounters with souls who we have not
traveled through time with over the millennia. They can be wholly
unfamiliar souls with whom we
have no prior spiritual contract, yet we meet them and
become intrigued. The good thing about our soul contracts and our Life
Plan is that it can be fluid and changeable on occasion.
New soul connections may particularly happen if you have already
completed all of your
previous karma, yet are still on earth. One may petition
another's soul on a higher level to see if that soul has any interest
in yours. Sometimes
the answer can come back a YES, yet be prepared for completely
unpredictable results with that other soul.
An intense interest or
mutual love can lead to whole new karma with that new soul. Many souls
petitioned will agree to a rendezvous if you have useful lessons you
can impart to that soul. Some souls may rearrange their life plan
around this new invitation if they can gain enough from you. Although
this does not mean that success is assured, new relationship karma may
be easier to quickly work through than very old karma. Karma we have
familiar souls is all the more painful than that with new souls. We
never immediately attack new soul connections; unfamiliar souls tend to
polite, cautious, and understanding with each other.
7. SOUL FAMILY Soulmates
Perhaps one of the most important kinds of soulmate is the one who is
literally part of our Soul
. A soul family is a
larger, collective soul energy
itself into smaller entities, Us,
in order to experience new expressions of itself.
It is at once
many. We are as branches of our Soul, and there are other branches
very similar indeed to ourself, 12 in total including ourself. Our Soul
belongs to an OVERSOUL, which can project 12 Souls from it. This means
that any one oversoul can have 12x12=144 incarnations. There are any
number of oversouls or branches that are higher up on the tree closer
to God. In fact, you could consider anyone on your own Spiritual Ray as
soul family, but that is getting more complicated! Have you heard of
indigo children, who are on the Indigo Ray, who all share basic
characteristics. They are like soul family, but there are a lot of them.
Our closest (soul family) soulmates share
then most of our own quirks and defects, strengths and thought
patterns. These 11 other soulmates originate from almost the exact
we have, with small differences. We know these soulmates mainly through
the remarkable similarities they have to us, almost like a mirror of
, for this is what they are in actuality. We are very
connected to the rest of our soul family even if we never meet most of
them. They can benefit from the lessons we learn throughout our
lifetime. Our new knowledge is absorbed into our soul, and since they
are extensions of the same soul as we are, they
our experiences as we travel through life.
