Love. The mere thought of it or just hearing the word always makes us think about something pure and vulnerable but still so beautiful.

Let’s face it—all of us want true love and are looking for it, even when we’re not aware of doing so.

You don’t have to admit it to anyone but you also imagine that there will appear the right person in your life who will cherish you for as long as you breathe.

You imagine meeting someone to sweep you off your feet, someone who will show you that all of your struggles and the pain you have experienced were worth it. Someone who will heal your wounds and fix your heart.

All of us hope that one day, we’ll encounter a person who will be our lover, best friend and dearest family member, someone we can rely on, someone who will never abandon us. That one day, we’ll meet our true soulmate.

What is a soulmate?

A soulmate is someone who is literally ‘your other half’, your forever person and someone you’re intertwined with on a deeper level that sometimes can’t even be explained.

Even though in modern culture, most connect the concept of a soulmate with a romantic partner, the truth is that a soulmate can also be someone you see as your best friend or a close family member.

It’s the one person in this world who knows you better than anyone else and someone whom you carry with yourself forever, no matter where life takes you.

The first person you want to call whenever something good or bad happens, the one person who always gets you just by looking at you and someone you can trust with your life.

Many people describe their true soulmate as a person who is always close to them, even if they’re physically apart, someone who makes them safe and sound and someone whose touch feels familiar, even if they never felt it before.

You don’t have to believe in this but the truth is our soul is destined to be with someone from the moment we come into this world.

We are born as a part of a couple and it is our earthly mission to find our missing part of the puzzle.

Our mission is to find the person who will help us heal from all the people who hurt us before, who will help us become a better version of ourself and who will show us how much better the world can be if we just have a ‘partner in crime’.

How do soulmates connect?

Soul connection is much more than an ordinary type of love. Instead, it is something out of this world, something you can’t explain and something that happens only once in a lifetime. 

Soulmates connect through their entire being—through body language, through their voice and most importantly, through their eyes. 

You know how they say that the eyes are the windows to one’s soul?

Well, would you believe me if I told you that the best way to connect with your soulmate is through the eyes?

Have you ever seen those movies where two people make eye contact and they can’t take their eyes off of one another? Those romantic scenes where they can’t move and just stand there, staring at each other?

Well, this doesn’t happen just in the movies or in love stories. Even though you might not believe in love at first sight, these things really do happen in real life.

When you meet your soulmate, it’s not that easy to keep your eyes off of them.

It seems like you’re communicating with your eyes and that they are connecting you two on a whole new level.

You feel like you’ve met each other somewhere else, at another time or in another place.

It is like you two recognize one another, even though you’ve actually never met before.

The fact is that you and your soulmate have known each other in one of your past lives.

So, even though you don’t remember this person, your soul does and consequently, it causes a reaction in your body.

Hearing something like this might creep you out if you haven’t experienced it before.

Knowing that there is a person out there whose eyes can pierce right into your soul is at the same time amazing and frightening.

The truth is that your soulmate’s eyes can look right through yours. They can see each layer of your personality and have the ability to look into your every fear, every thought and every little spark of happiness.

Even though you two don’t look alike physically, the truth is that your souls are almost identical twins. That is exactly why the two of you are the perfect match.

So, please, don’t mistake finding your twin flame for something physical!

Don’t mistake it for vestigial attraction, for passion or butterflies which wake up inside your stomach when you meet someone new for the first time.

Don’t mistake it for sexual desire or excitement because the intimacy you’re about to feel with this special someone is much more than that.

Soulmate Signs Eyes

All of us experience turbulent events in a different manner and meeting your soulmate is definitely one of those events which leave a permanent mark on our lives.

However, there are some of the signs common for everyone whose souls have connected through the eyes and here are 9 of them.

1.  You can’t breathe

Once a soulmate relationship hits you, the first thing that happens is that you lose your breath for a moment.

One of the first signs of a soulmate entering your life is a feeling like two universes have crashed and time has stopped for a second.

You can’t help but wonder whether you just forgot to breathe or if this person is taking your breath away.

What happens is that upon meeting, you and your soulmate are actually interfering with each other’s fate once more.

At first, the energy of this karmic relationship means you get swept away by the number of overwhelming emotions you’re feeling.

If you have experienced this upon looking into the eyes of someone, you know that they are truly your soulmate.

2. At first, you feel unstable but then you calm down

The huge number of emotions that overwhelm you after this initial eye contact and soulmate connection cause your hands to start trembling. Your heart is racing and your mind is clouded.

At first, your whole body starts to shiver but as soon as your soul realizes what is happening, it calms down.

You know the feeling when you’re going through a storm and then suddenly, when you get home, you’re safe and sound?

Well, it’s the same feeling when you first look into the eyes of your soulmate.

Your bodies, minds, hearts—all of you has been waiting for this moment for far too long and when it finally happens, you feel incredible peace.

You feel like you’ve come home, after years of wandering around. Like your ship has reached its harbor, after fighting the ruthless waves.

Deep down, you know that from this point on, everything will be OK, that things will finally fall into place and that all the unnecessary drama and untranquility will disappear from your life.

3. It’s like déjà vu

Upon looking into your soulmate’s eyes, you might start feeling a bit nostalgic.

You can’t explain this but it’s like you’re experiencing déjà vu, like you’ve seen those eyes somewhere before and like you’ve known them forever.

It is as if they have been looking at you for a long time and like they know you better than you know yourself.

You might even get flashbacks and start to feel like you have already loved them in a past life.

4. You’re confused

Even though your soul is aware of what’s happening, your body, your mind and your ego still haven’t fully grasped what’s going on.

So, they keep on trying to rationalize what’s happening and trying to get to the bottom of these new emotions you’re experiencing.  

For that same reason, you might feel confused upon looking into the eyes of your soulmate.

Your body language might change, you can get tongue-tied, forget what you wanted to say or even become paralyzed.

5. They feel it too

The best part about finding a soulmate is the fact that this is not just a one-sided deal and that it is always mutual.

The other person also notices the signs of a soulmate coming into their life. 

Both of your souls are connected and both of you are weirded out by this whole situation.

Even when this person touches you, the atoms in both of your bodies react to it with the utmost joy.

The moment your soulmate looks at you, they will know that it was you all along who they were waiting for and they won’t think twice about welcoming you into their life.

6. You continue to see them everywhere

Once you make eye contact with your soulmate, your soulmate connection doesn’t stop there. Instead, this person continues to appear in front of you constantly.

You can literally go to the other side of the world but they will be there and there is no way in hell you can avoid them, even if you try to do so.

Your souls have been apart from each other for too long and once they meet at last, they continue searching for one another because they don’t want to be apart any longer.

7. You understand each other, even though you’ve just met

Even though you’ve met this person for the first time ever, you two have no communication barriers whatsoever.

Instead, your soulmate connection forces you to immediately start talking as if you’ve known each other for your entire lives.  

Neither of you feels nervous or uncomfortable. In fact, it seems that you understand one another perfectly; you always know what the other person means and wants to say and you even finish each other’s sentences with ease.

Let’s be honest—you can’t do this with just anyone you start to like at first sight.

It has to be with someone very special and someone with whom you’ve been destined to fall in love with.

8. You change

You know how they say that people don’t change and that we always essentially remain the same, no matter what happens?

Well, this theory becomes a part of the past once you run into your soulmate because they are the only one who has the ability to push you to become a better and more improved version of yourself.

After a while of knowing your soulmate, you can’t help but notice that you are a completely new person.

Your entire life has become better and all you can do is think about that fateful moment when you two met. Finally, you’re complete.

You are no longer afraid of anything life could throw at you because you know that you have someone who has your back, no matter what.

You feel much stronger and more powerful. It is like you can achieve anything you set your mind to and as if all of your insecurities and inner dilemmas have magically disappeared.

9. You start to love them right away

When it comes to meeting your soulmate, you know it’s been them all along since the first day.

this case scenario, you don’t grow to love them as you get to know them better—you immediately start to care for them the way you never cared for anyone else in your life up till now.

The moment you meet your twin flame is the moment they become the center of your universe.

It is the moment they become the only person you think about, the moment you forget about all of your exes, all of your traumas and issues and all of your doubts about whether you’re meant to be loved.  

Most importantly—all of your fears get swept away. You don’t question their intentions, you don’t wonder whether they’ll break your heart or where this is all going.

There are no mixed signals, no hidden messages, no playing games.

You know that you have encountered true love and you know that this deep connection will last for the rest of your life.

When you meet someone you want to spend the rest of your life next to, everything else becomes irrelevant.

You don’t care about such things as their past, your age difference, finances or family background—you just want this person to never leave your side and you’re ready to do whatever it takes to prevent that from happening. 

All of a sudden, everything starts to make sense; you understand why things never worked out with anyone in your past and you know that this is the only right person for you. 

If you haven’t found your soulmate relationship before now, know that it will happen sooner or later.

Their soul is searching for yours too and there is no way that you will be left alone in this cold, harsh world without your soul getting connected with its missing part of the puzzle.

Don’t forget that your perfect match doesn’t have to be a romantic partner.

It can also be a friend with whom you have a deep connection and you simply go together well.
