You just met but you feel like you've known them forever.
You can be fully yourself around them.
You feel peace in their presence.
You hold them in your mind and heart even when you are apart.
Some people call these relationships soul connections. But whatever name you use, it is clear that they are powerful. These relationships can lift us up and bring feelings of love and joy, and they can also leave us feeling lonely and depleted when they end.
Taking a more esoteric perspective, the people you relate to on this deep level may resonate closely with the energy of your human form. You are connected to all of creation, but these people resonate so closely with you that it is easier to sense this connection. For this reason, it is possible to use these relationships to expand your consciousness.
What follows are four ways to use these connections to open up your spiritual awareness:
1. Notice if/when you become attached to the emotion of connection and you begin to chase, grasp or cling-to the person or relationship.
2. During these moments, remind yourself that the love, peace, and joy that come through this connection is who you are deep down. Take time to become more fully aware of your spiritual nature.
3. Be grateful for the beautiful and fun moments with these people. Enjoy them; allow them to transform you.
4. When the people who speak to your soul are no longer in your life, replay the joyful experiences in your mind. Use these memories to raise your energy especially when you feel scared, separate, and lonely.
