Soulmates are part of our soul group and we form meaningful relationships with them throughout our lifetimes to resolve karma in preperation for our twin soul or twinflame soulmate.
To understand what a soulmate is you must understand what a soul actually is. There is a slight difference between the meaning of the Spirit and Soul. The Soul is the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being that is regarded as immortal. The Soul is the breath of Spirit that gives the body life. It is your consciousness or mind and is a sum of your thoughts, emotions, memory, desires, will, and other aspects that animate your being.
You are not a physical body that has a soul,
you are a soul that has a physical body.
Before being born into the physical dimension, we choose some of the major experiences that we desire to have, and we make soul-level contracts with other souls. We may even choose our own parents and the lifestyle we are going to live. An easy life versus a difficult life is of no concern from the perspective of the soul. Our life circumstances, whether positive or negative, and the connections with certain people in our life, are happening for a reason.
Challenging situations and relationships often bring about the greatest opportunities for the individual to learn various life lessons and to grow spirituality. At your birth, aspects of your personality, character, talents, abilities, weaknesses and strengths are already formed in essence as part of your soul. Now, it is just a matter of learning from your weaknesses and using your abilities to the upmost capacity.
The journey through the physical earth experience brings much heart-felt experience and wisdom to the soul. There are moments of joy and creative self expression, and there are growing pains and life lessons. Life is but a stage and we are merely the actors. You share this 3D earth experience with many other souls who are the actors in the movie that is your life. Soulmates in particular are all here to help assist in teaching us life lessons and to help us progress spiritually.
