Finding a soul mate is a great gift that not everyone is granted. However, you can actively help your (love) luck on the jump. You could theoretically meet your soul mate on any day and at any time. In the following article you will learn how you can reliably recognize him and which stages of development you have to go through until your soul partnership.

What is a Soul partnership?

There are numerous philosophically inclined descriptions for a soul mate. The most commonly used metaphor is that of the missing piece of the puzzle that makes your soul complete. That this piece of the puzzle was missing in the first place, you often only notice when you have found your soul mate. You complement and complete each other.

A soul partnership is characterized by trust, understanding and affection. You know what the other person thinks and will say even before he has said it. The same is true vice versa. There is a magical bond that is invisible to other people. To outsiders, the soul partnership sometimes even seems a little scary.

Often the soul partner is also the love partner. However, this does not necessarily have to be the case. There are quite a few soul mates that are of a friendly nature. Also twins are often said to be soul mates.

Soul mateship: what does science say about it?

Before we delve further into the subject of soul mates, it makes sense to first shed some light on whether something like a soul mate even exists from a scientific point of view.

Hans-Werner Bierhoff, a well-known professor of social psychology at the Ruhr University in Bochum, describes soul mateship as a personal illusion. Accordingly, it is a subjective feeling that can feel different for each person. (Source: What makes love strong: The new psychology of couple relationships, authors: Hans-Werner Bierhoff and Elke Rohmann).

Although the term "illusion" implies that the soul mate does not exist from a scientific point of view, this cannot be said so sweepingly. The sensations of the soul elude research in many cases. If you experience your soul partner as real, then he is for you. You can compare it a little with religious Faith compare. Scientific proof is not needed.

How do I find my soul mate?

Finding your soul mate is not an undertaking that can be concretely planned. The more pressure you put on yourself, the lower your chances. Even if it may sound a little esoteric: Your mind must be free, open and unbiased. Only then will your soul mate be able to come to you. Basically, your soul mate can meet you anywhere: at work, in your free time or by chance on a walk.

Nevertheless, you do not have to wait completely idly until your soul mate meets you. By familiarizing yourself with the signs of a soul partnership, it will be easier for you to recognize your soul mate.

Soulmates: These 8 phases bring you together

Love must develop. This is true even if you are sure that you have recognized your soul mate. You will go through eight stages of development until complete soul merging. However, not everyone experiences these stages at the same pace. So it may well be that you are ready for the next step faster than your soul mate.

Stage 1: You recognize each other immediately

The first phase begins with the inexplicable, yet unshakable certainty that your soul mate is facing you. A look, a gesture or a single word is enough to awaken deep feelings.

Stage 2: You celebrate your connectedness

In the second stage, you enjoy your intimate connection. It seems as if a inner emptinessthat you have not been aware of at all, has suddenly been filled.

Stage 3: Confusion

Such an intense closeness as you experience with your soul mate can after a while lead to strong confusion or even to Fears lead. After all, you two have never experienced anything like this before.

  • Loss of identity due to the strong bond.
  • Dependence on the (soul) partner.
  • Fear of being responsible for the well-being of the partner.

Level 4: Removal

After the first critical phase of confusion, it can now happen that the two soul mates first distance themselves from each other in order to sort out their own thoughts. Men in particular are not infrequently affected by the violent emotionsThe distance is overwhelmed by the difficulties that a soul mate brings with it. However, the distance is an important phase to the perfect soul partnership.

Stage 5: Longing

After a while, the desired distance triggers violent feelings of longing in both parties. You pine for your soul mate so much that it physically hurts. However, you both don't quite know how to approach each other again.

Stage 6: You put the focus on yourself

The roller coaster of emotions gradually calms down in this stage of development. You begin to focus on yourself again. You pursue your work, your hobbies and your social obligations. The distance you gain allows you to look at the soul partnership a little more neutrally: What happened to me in the first place? How can it continue?

Stage 7: Slow approach

You have given yourselves space for a while. Now it is even easier to allow the deep connection again. By now you are clear about what your special connection is all about and what you want for the future. Now, at the latest, one of you is actively making contact again.

Stage 8: Fusion

In the final stage of development, both of you are ready to merge with each other spiritually. All fears and doubts are eliminated. The deep soul connection and unshakable trust are stable.

However, for some soul mates, new challenges may require a re-run of the Development stages 4 to 8 are necessary. However, this is not a bad thing, but should be regarded as a natural and exciting cycle.
