Love. Just the thought of it or just hearing the word always makes us think about something pure and vulnerable but still so beautiful. When we think about love, all we really do is imagine that there is one person in our lives who will cherish us forever. And in our minds, we call that person our ‘soulmate’.
What is a soulmate?
A soulmate is someone who is literately ‘your other half’. A soulmate doesn’t always have to be a romantic partner. It can also be someone you see as a friend and that is completely fine. It’s the one person in this world who knows you better than anyone else. A soulmate is someone whom you carry with yourself forever. You see, this is always somehow in the back of my head and I always go back to it, thinking that there really is someone out there who is so close to me and someone who will make me feel safe and sound when he hugs me. We will become one again and his touch will feel so familiar. So many people describe their soulmates just like that.
From the moment we were born, our souls are destined to be with someone. There is a perfect match out there for every each and one of us. This person will help us heal from all the people who hurt us before. They will help us become better versions of ourselves and they will show us how much better the world can be if we just have a ‘partner in crime’.
But how do soulmates connect?
Would you believe me if I told you that the best way to connect with your soulmate is through the eyes? It isn’t said without a reason that the eyes are the windows to our souls. Have you ever seen those movies where two people meet and they can’t take their eyes away from each other? They just stand there without a reason and stare at each other? Well, that isn’t without a reason. These things really do happen in real life.
When you meet your soulmate, it’s not that easy to keep your eyes away from them. It seems like you’re communicating with your eyes and that they are connecting you two on a whole new level. You seem to have the feeling like you’ve met each other somewhere else, in another time or at another place.
It sure does creep you out, doesn’t it? Knowing that there is a person out there whose eyes can pierce themselves right into your soul. Their eyes can look into your every fear, every thought and every little spark of happiness. What you feel, they feel. It’s just the perfect match.
Don’t mistake this for something physical! Of course eyes are a wonderful trait on people, but don’t mistake a connection through the eyes as something just physical. Your soulmate may not be an A+ creation of a human being, but his soul connects to yours. His heart is pure and he loved you before he even knew you.
Your soulmate is that one person who makes everything feel alright. He makes your heart whole again. Your soulmate doesn’t think twice about calling you and everything he does he does for the future of the two of you. Of course, your emotions are running wild as well and all you do is somehow connected to your soulmate.
Some of the clear signs that your souls have connected through your eyes include:
1. You can’t breathe
Did you just forget to breathe or are they taking your breath away? You and your soulmate upon meeting are actually interfering with your fates oncs more. The energy of the Universe isn’t bearable, so you get swept away by the amount 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 felt unstable, but then you calmed down
From the huge amount of emotions that overwhelmed you, your feet started to tremble. Your heart was racing and your head was clouded. Your whole body started to shiver, but the moment your soul realised what was happening it calmed down. You know the feeling when you get home and you’re safe and sound? Well it’s the same feeling when you firstly look into the eyes of your soulmate. Your bodies, minds, hearts—all of you has been waiting for this moment for far too long.
3. You see flashbacks
Upon looking into the eyes of your soulmate, you might start feeling a bit nostalgic. Like you’ve seen those eyes somewhere before. Like they have been looking at you a long time ago and those eyes knew you better than you know yourself. You might even get flashbacks and the feeling like you’ve known this person from a long time ago and like you have loved in a completely other place before.
4. You’re confused
Although your soul knows what’s happening, your body, our rationality and your ego won’t let you realise what’s going on. They continue rationalizing what’s happening, no matter the fact that you are experiencing all those other signs that say that he truly is your soulmate. For that same reason, you might feel confused upon looking into the eyes of your soulmate. You will forget what you wanted to say and you will feel starstruck.
5. He feels it, too
It’s not just a one-sided deal. Both of your souls are connecting and both of you are being weirded out by this whole situation. Even when he touches you, the atoms in both of your bodies react to it with the most joy. If he says that he didn’t feel any connection or that he’s simply not into you in any way, than he’s telling you the truth. Your soulmate will look at you and know that it was you all along that he was waiting for and he won’t think twice about inviting you into his life.
6. You continue seeing him everywhere
When you have laid eyes on your soulmate once, they continue appearing in front of you constantly. No matter if you go into a whole new cafe where you know that you won’t bump into him, he’s still there. There is no way in hell you can actually avoid him. Because your souls have been too long apart and finally they have met, they continue searching for one another because they don’t want to be apart any longer.
7. You understand him, even though you’ve just met
Even though you’ve just sat down with your soulmate and you haven’t have the chance to talk ever before, right now you know that the two of you are just connected because it’s all about the way you two talk with one another. You understand each other’s slang and you finish each other’s sentences with ease. You can’t do this with just anyone. It has to be someone very special and someone with whom you’ve been destined to fall in love with.
8. You remembered the details
You two have just met, but just try to think about that moment and you’ll see that you’re remembering every single move you two made. Even though both of you were confused and overwhelmed with wild emotions, you remember the way he looked at you, the way he spoke, what he wore, the color of his eyes—you simply remember everything that happened that moment.
9. You’ve changed
You are a completely new person. Your life has become more cheerful and all you can do is think about that fateful moment when you two met. You are a new person because you can’t imagine yourself being with anyone else but him. You can’t imagine ever again living a life without thinking about the time your eyes met. This is the power of soulmates because you are completely changed. You have finally met your other half and there’s no going back now to a world without him.
10. You daydream
Now, more than ever. You have always been thinking about the moment of connection between you and your soulmate, but from the moment that you laid eyes on him, you have encountered true love and that is when you have made a turn in your life. Now, there won’t be a day in your life that you won’t think of him. He will continue being inside your mind for the rest of time. You will daydream about the day you kissed, the day you decided to live your lives together. Everything. It’s just the two of you against the world right now.
And don’t be afraid. Your soulmate isn’t just someone who will disappear from your life that easily. He won’t be able to live a day again without looking into your eyes and seeing his future in them.
If you haven’t found your soulmate until now, know that it will happen sooner or later. His soul is searching for yours, too, and there is no way that you will be left alone in this cold world without your soul getting connected with your other half. Don’t forget that it doesn’t have to be a romantic partner. It can also be a friend with whom you have no romantic connection, but you two simply go so well together.
Don’t give up. Your time will come and you will get starstruck with the feeling of belonging that will overflow your body with joy once you get to the point when you will lay eyes on them.
