Sometimes we don’t always know what to call it or how to explain it but there’s an unspoken connection with someone.
The truth is there’s actually a couple of different types of these connections and they mean different things.
The main ones you really need to know are Twin Flames, Soulmates and Kindred Spirits. Hollywood has distorted our understanding of some of these terms so please make sure you understand the difference in each before investing yourself in a relationship that will cause you harm in the long run.
I’ve covered the difference in twin flames and soulmates before but to give you a basic idea:
- Twin flames are the ultimate connection you can have with someone. They are another part of the same soul, the end of a spiritual journey. Unlike anything else and the signs you’ll experience are strong.
- Soulmates are not what Hollywood movies would have you believe. This is a connection with someone who will help you find your twin flame. A connection to be cherished but not the end result.
- A kindred spirit is someone you just vibe with. You’ll get on like a house on fire and they’ll make for a great friendship for fun but a relationship with a kindred spirit can quickly turn toxic. They are commonly mistaken for a false twin flame.
Now you understand what the differences are – let’s look at the signs you are spiritually connected with someone.
You might not experience all of them at once.
In fact, there are no two twin flame journeys that are ever the same so you’ll never experience the exact same thing as someone else – this is more of a guideline than anything else. If you’re in doubt about a connection we do have a twin flame tarot reading which can look at your connection and help you understand it better.
That ‘Gut’ Feeling
This is one most of us will understand without too much explanation.
You just feel it in your gut that they’re somehow right for you. There’s just no logical explanation for it. There’s something in your gut that just tells you that there’s something about that person that makes you comfortable, safe and secure- even if you just met them. You know what they say about gut instincts; to always trust your gut because most of the time, it’s usually always right.
You Feel Calm Around Them
While some connections (like meeting your twin flame) can fill you with energy and excitement there is also a sense of calmness and security. You’ll be able to open up to them and no topic is taboo or the wrong thing to say.
Somehow all your worst anxieties and worries disappear whenever you’re with this person and everything wrong in the world fades as you’re with them. It’s not like they magically cure all your problems in the world but you’re just generally a more calm and peaceful person as you’re with this person. They make you feel secure, both emotionally and mentally.
You Just Feel Yourself
The best sign that you are spiritually connected with someone is the fact that you can be your true self around them. In a world where we constantly have to put masks and hide who we truly are in fear of others judging us and in fear of rejection, you know that you’re spiritually connected with someone the moment that you feel comfortable to be yourself. If you’re with them, there’s going to be no need to pretend whatsoever because they’re going to accept you and love you exactly as you are.
You Can Have Deep and Meaningful Conversations Around Them
Since you feel utterly comfortable with them and you feel like you can trust them wholeheartedly, deep conversations with them come naturally to you. It just surprises you that you’re able to open up about things you normally don’t just talk about with anyone and you’re wanting to dive in about topics such as faith, politics and the universe with them. You just somehow get this urge to have a healthy exchange of conversation with them and what their opinion is on certain topics. You basically want to know how their mind works.
You Can Talk for Hours – But Silence is Also Comfortable
With this person, you don’t have to be constantly be talking just to fill up the awkwardness in the air. With them, you can sit in comfortable silence and it can be counted as communication. You’re completely capable of sitting in comfortable silence with them and you don’t have to spend unnecessary energy to communicate with them. You don’t need to be expressing your anxiety, or happiness, or whatever emotion you’re feeling into words. Sometimes, there’s more communication in what you don’t say rather than in what you do.
You Can Be Open and Vulnerable
You don’t have this need to hide whatever it is you’re feeling from them. As humans, generally we tend to feel this fear of vulnerability and transparency. However, if you’re spiritually connected with someone, you won’t have this irrational fear. With this person, you’re open to being vulnerable and transparent with them. Whatever it is that you feel, you’re brave and open enough to let them know. Even in your darkest emotions, you’re not scared to let them know. Somehow, running to them with your feelings is your first instinct to do.
Intimacy Is NOT Just Physical
With this person, it isn’t just about the physical aspect. Unlike the contrary, being intimate with someone comes with all aspects- physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. When you’re spiritually connected with someone, you feel intimate with them even with the mundane things you do together, even if it’s just as simple as laughing together. It’s in moments like these that make you feel connected with your partner.
You Share the Same Morales, Values and Interests
This is probably one of the concrete signs you are spiritually connected with someone. If you have the same values, morals and principles with them, then you know for sure that they’re the right person for you. It’s rare enough to find someone that shares the same morals with you so when you find them, you know that it’s a spiritual connection. Especially since we’re talking about spiritual connection, and it’s a general fact that the majority of our values and morals come from what we believe in.
They Aid in Your Healing
Whether it’s healing in your past relationship baggage or just something in your past that destroyed you, the moment they entered your life, you know for sure that they have helped in your healing. When they came in the picture, your progress in your healing has improved by so much and even you yourself know this. It’s really hard to let go of all that past baggage, especially if it has been traumatizing on your end. When you met this person you’re spiritually connected to, you learned to let go of the past and just keep moving forward- no matter how dark your past has been.
You’re a Better and Happier Version of Yourself
When you’re with them, you’re generally a happier and more cheerful version of yourself. You don’t even have to be with them physically for you to feel this happier mood of yourself. When they came in the picture, you find yourself laughing more and somehow the world seems much lighter, You notice yourself loving life so much more than usual and you see the beauty even amidst your problems and your struggles in your life. You also have the same sense of humor as this person, which is probably why they make you happier. They fill you with a sense of hope and the world is just a lot brighter.
