There are many who are searching for their soulmate as their “one and only” person in life, and yet do not have a clear understanding of what a soulmate may be. The conception of what a soulmate consists of can only be an idea of what that term means, in our lives. It varies from individual to individual, yet the most common understanding of the word is found in the phrase, “our one and only.”
The inner search to find a deeper understanding of ourselves and what we truly desire in a relationship should be our focus, in instead of searching for the elusive “perfect” person. This will help attract a soulmate to us. Yes, this person may be your “one and only” for an entire lifetime, or maybe for as little as a month or two.
Spiritually, it doesn’t matter how long the relationship lasts, as long as the “contract” is fulfilled and the two spirits are able to learn their lessons from the relationship. The term “contract” is used because it is the perspective of many people that a soulmate is someone with whom we have a spiritual contract. This is an agreement to help each other to heal, grow and evolve, regardless of its being a positive or negative relationship.
When you are able to look into anotherʹs eyes and express love openly and freely, you have found a love that will be healing, empowering, and delightfully fun. As you grow, you may find that this relationship no longer fulfills your needs. Perhaps your contract has been fulfilled, and it is time to move on.
Some soulmate relationships may last forever, but not in the sense of only having a “one and only” in the current life. For, it is true that you will always know that person on a soul level, and you may meet at other times in different incarnations through a desire to see each other again or to do work together. If a relationship ends that you did not want to end, understand that the other person has other people to meet and things to do for his or her personal evolution. It is important to allow the person time and space to grow, and to release them with as much forgiveness as possible, knowing that you will meet again. Trust in the Universe, and look for the positive in any painful situation. Perhaps another soulmate would love to spend time with you!
