Soulmate- True or Just an Illusion ?

“True love is finding your soulmate in your best friend”      Faye Hall

It’s a 3.9-minute read.

I am giving you Seven theories regarding the topic ‘SOULMATE’.
Which one as per you is more accurate and near to truth and a fact indeed? Or you feel it’s unrealistic and falsehood and just bogus and even fraud committed on the gullible!!

Please guide me. I am as confused as anybody else.

1. A soulmate does not exist. It’s for professional POETS, who love to exaggerate the existence of Soulmates in their poetic style, laced with honey traces.
2. Soulmate exists.Yes.But only in one’s dreams! It’s impossible in this world to have a mirror image personality (100% ), scientifically!
3. Soulmates do exist because of the synchronisation of the individual’s flaws.

“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that very few times in your life if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” Lisa Kleypas

4. The following theory stresses the point that age is immaterial in a soulmate relationship.

“A soulmate is not necessarily a lover or your life partner. A soulmate can be anyone in your life who has a great positive influence on you. Every single person that we deem to be “significant” truly is exactly that, for their vibrational essence is blending with ours and together we are creating unique energy. It is believed that the soul radiates all about the physical body, what some refer to as an aura. When you connect with another person spiritually and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Should such a deep bond be formed, it is said you have found your soulmate. We are all joined in an ancient and eternal union with humanity that cut across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy, and definition. When you are blessed with a soulmate, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home. This is a place so sacred that you open up completely to your soulmate. A soulmate can be a guru, a parent, a friend or your lover”

The above quote gives, one some confidence, but One is not sure how long to wait, say 1 year,10 years,30 years,50 years, or till death. Waiting for the soulmate

6. Twin Flames

Twin flames are defined as mirror images of each other.

It is said twin flames have one soul divided into two bodies.

Some say the twin flames description is exclusively limited to romantic relationships, unlike soul mates.

Even they go to the extent of telling that Twin flames have physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional connections.

“People who are meant to be together will always find their way back to each other. They might take detours in life, but they are never lost.” Christina Silverio

7. Finally, you have another theory that stresses that you just sit where you belong and your soulmate reaches you at the time when you are ready.

And in this situation, one is not sure what time one is said to be ready!

“You are not supposed to go out and find Love. Love will find you when you are ready.” Suzy Kassem


So my friends, what are your thoughts on this subject?

Can you enlighten me?

Thank you.

  1. The concept is going to be different for everyone. There is no one answer. Just as there is no one soul mate. We are a social species, one that desires connection and fulfillment. If one wants a soul mate, then that distinct sense of “something is lacking” in their life will be the thing that drives them on their search for one. If one doesn’t care for a soul mate, then there is no soul mate.
    I never used to believe in soul mates. Conceptually, I see soul mates as people who you feel a divine (unexplainable, indefinable, but deeply resonant sensation) connection with. An uncanny familiarity. Essentially any person whom makes you into a more whole version of yourself.
    Soul as the basic undercurrent of your essence, and mate as a companion or counterpoint, a friend/partner/sidekick. Simultaneously grounding and elevating, someone who acts as an anchor to ones heart, a symbiotic energetic exchange that raises your spirit, and whose love is reciprocated.

  2. Oye sridhar ,
    How r you doing ? Hope all is well.

    Let’s come to the point .

    Most of the people doesn’t believe this .But soulmate is true . Now the question s how we will find this person . We might have seen them years ago , and may be at that point of time we may not get so connected but just imagine if we r meeting this person again in our life with no reason and some thing has established surprisingly immediate and deep connection; but that doesn’t means this person s ur soul mate ,its just a feeling u have met before but u sense as very familiar as u know them long before and you are magnetically connected with each other and sometimes you forget all other realtionships and just act as you finally got awake from deep sleep . And this person can be your true friend, lover or person you have never ever met face to face and am sure he or she will be ur craziest fan.They will love, fight and care you like anything else and will always stand for you if you have done any mistakes and correct you with all the possible solutions . Also sometimes also think same as you. They will always love you the way you are . Am not saying it will be same in all cases .I just shared my feelings and it doesn’t mean that just because you don’t find your soulmate ,you can’t be happy. I believe you can be happy with lot of people . Telling truth , you will not feel the connection of soulmate unless you experience it ,Once you get involved in this feeling you will feel that you have reached the destination you were searching for long time .

    So let me wind-up with
    sharing beautiful quotes

    “A soulmate is not found. A soulmate is recognized.”

    Thanks and also enlight us with your new post .

    1. Oye Mermaid….
      Hope All ok from your end .
      Apologies for the delayed response.
      The reason is simple.
      Your response makes me think think think for days together to come to a confused conclusion enough to be replied late.
      Got confused ?
      No problem.
      Because we are all confused regarding soulmate.
      Million reasons and billion explanations.
      What to do ?
      What one says the other one not agreeing forget about acceptance.
      Not even coming to a mutually, universally acceptable solution…..
      It’s almost million years of my waiting for my soulmate .. …🤔🤔🤔
      No solution available…
      Waiting for the destination……
      How long more……..
      No idea ???
      I understand ….this is the status for every one in this world.
      Don’t you agree ??
      So…..there is no such thing as soulmate ??
      It’s an illusion and some satisfaction one gets at least by dreaming !!
