Soul Mates & Life Partners…What’s the Difference?

Soul Mates & Life Partners…What’s the Difference?

The topic of soulmates often comes up during spiritual sessions. Clients usually emerge after a relationship that held so much promise ends abruptly. They are then left wondering what actually happened. To their own recollection, there were no signs of trouble in paradise; just a seemingly blissful relationship that felt magnetic, familiar, and perfect for them at the time.

When I look at these situations psychically and view not only the pain of the client but also the pain and mutual confusion shared by their former partner, the answer becomes clear.

They were not meant to be life partners & soulmates. They were meant to be soul mates for a time.

Upon delivering this information clients will often question the validity of the statement and want to know more.

As the session progresses, I explain that soulmates are anyone and everyone who stretches our soul, teaches us lessons, and helps us grow spiritually. They can be romantic in nature or strictly platonic. Friends, family, co-workers, and yes, even pets can be our soulmates. Why? Because their presence stimulates spiritual growth by changing the way we look at the world and deepening our capacity for love, forgiveness, and healing.

There are soulmates who are meant to be with us for a short time because they have a very specific lesson to teach us. This is quite common when we look at romantic partnerships that only last the spring or summer. In many cases, the purpose is to teach us how to have fun, enjoy life, and not cling so tightly to what we think the ideal outcome should be.

However, as the relationship is clearly coming to a close, both parties may try to prolong the experience while simultaneously watching it fall apart. The truth is, it was meant to dissolve because lessons have been dispensed and now it is time to learn them, accept them, and move on to the next chapter of life.

That brings me to the subject of life partners. Life partners are soul mates but with a twist. Their purpose is to build a life with us that helps stretch and grow our souls over time. Their soul mission is intertwined with our own and by the sheer nature of that fact, they stick around for the long haul. For example, life partners often marry or opt to have very long term relationships with each other. In many cases they also raise children (biological or otherwise) and build businesses together.

Those experiences not only build a life, they grow the soul by teaching patience, commitment, and unconditional love. The souls involved choose that specific path because it is the most effective way to learn the spiritual lessons they need within the span of their lifetime.

It is important to remember that no matter how things may appear we are guided by the soul and if we watch closely, it will lead the way.
