Have you ever met someone and instantly felt like you had always known the person? Or have you ever known someone and just felt like you belonged together somehow, whether romantically or perhaps as close friends? If so, you have recognized a spiritual connection with another human being.
The Physical Connection
Whether we have moved forward in a relationship of some sort with someone we have felt a spiritual connection with or not, most of us have at least felt this connection at least once, and sometimes more in our lives. Your spiritual energy knows what is right for you and this includes how you feel from one day to the next. Research shows that spiritual health is directly related to your physical health and well-being. So, does that mean that every time you feel a spiritual connection to someone you must follow your spirit and try to be with them? Or does it mean that every relationship you find yourself in will be because you have a spiritual connection? Of course not, but it can surely help!
When it comes to physical health, having a good medical insurance plan will help when you need treatment from a physician. Being healthy spiritually and moving forward with your spiritual connections arises from within as a deep connection from the mind and soul, and combined with a healthy body, your spiritual health can lead you in the right direction to finding those people and places that make your happiest in life.
If you have ever been deeply in love, you may have heard the term “soul mates” when trying to describe how close of a connection you have with another person. A person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner. For anyone who has felt that deep connection with another person however, having a soul mate means much more than just being suited to another person as a friend or romantic partner. A soul mate is a spiritual connection that you can feel, spiritually.
What does it mean though to feel another person spiritually? The answer, while deeply philosophical, is simple. It means you feel as if you already knew them even from the first moment you met. You feel a deep connection that drives you to this person and makes you feel a deep connection with that person and often, it’s a feeling that you cannot even begin to explain, even to yourself. You just know inside that you belong with this person.
There is a twist to this deep spiritual connection though. Not all soul mates recognize one another from the start. Some must take time to develop a true foundation and slowly take time to learn about the other person and really get to know them. The connection is there, but often it is not easy to see at first glance. For those who take time to develop a deeply spiritual connection over time, there must be an understanding that not everything is easy, and even with soul mates, not all relationships last forever although when they do, those tend to be the most well-balanced relationships in the universe.
Let’s not misunderstand things here. For most relationships, unless they are strictly physical, there will be some degree of a spiritual connection. This connection can vary however depending on how strongly a person understands their spiritual self and how deeply the other person may feel. In some relationships, one person can feel a deep sense of connection with the body, mind and spirit while the other person may only feel that physical connection. This can make things difficult for someone who strives to have inner peace and strong spiritual connections.
Keep in mind that just as many spiritually connected relationships will end in disharmony, many mixed spiritual/physical relationships can proceed to advanced stages of divine happiness and even up to those stages of feeling like you have found you soul mate, and higher. Deep spiritual connections often take time to grow and develop, so don’t let distance, in the beginning, dissuade you from the relationship unless you feel it is detrimental to your psyche.
Recognizing a Spiritual Connection
Many people wonder how they will know the difference between a true spiritual connection with someone and just something that feels like a connection. How many times have you been in a relationship and you felt like you really knew the person you were with and you felt peaceful about how things were proceeding, only to suddenly feel a jolt of unhappiness when the relationship went south?
It happens, and it can hurt to feel that rejection and sense of powerlessness when the realization that your soul mate was nothing more than a mirage in your own mind, or that your partner who you felt closer to than any other human was not really the one at all. Thankfully, there are some tried and true ways to recognize a real spiritual connection and here they are:
A spiritual connection can be just the right person to help heal our inner wounds. For instance, that heartbreak or rejection you may feel from a previous bad relationship can seem to dissipate when you meet your spiritual connection. This person will help you move ahead in life rather than staying stagnated in the mire of sadness or disappointment that you might currently be in.
A spiritual connection can help guide you to the real purpose in your life. Have you always felt like you could take the theatre stage by storm but never taken time to dive into it? This person can help you see your inner “stage actor” and help you get onto the stage and make your dreams come true. They give you a sense of purpose to achieve the goals you have and to give everything your all.
3) Awaken Dreams
Just as with helping us find our purpose, a soul mate (or spiritual connection) can help awaken dreams we may have had that are long forgotten or have been buried in the back of our minds for a very long time.
A spiritual connection can help us to be open and honest not only with others, but with us ourselves! When we face things honestly, it is much easier to move ahead and try things that we may have once felt we couldn’t do or wouldn’t be good at.
Okay, this one may sound odd, but a true spiritual connection can cause us to feel a little discomfort in our lives. Trying new things and having the courage to take steps to do things we once were afraid to do can be challenging for most of us. Once the discomfort passes, however, it is easier to see our way down the right path and being able to move ahead.
Whether you call a spiritual connection a soul mate, a cosmic connection or even a soul healer, they can and do influence every aspect of your spiritual presence and often even our very physical presence in life. Before reaching out to find or to grow closer to a spiritual connection, it is best to take time to know and understand your own inner psyche and learn to love your own self, body, mind and spirit to truly know and love another. Our connections, just as our own minds, help prepare us for this journey we know as life.
