What Is A Soul Mate

Somebody tell me why I’m on my own, if there’s a soulmate for everyone? ~ Soulmate, Natasha Beddingfield. People in the olden days and even now, believe that everyone has a soulmate. A soulmate is someone who is a “soul twin”, in a way that they have something beyond love and friendship, something beyond the superficial. The true definition, in simple words for it would be, “someone you have a deep affinity for”. With friends, the words – soul mate is a very common thing. It forms a sort of bonding and togetherness with the two individuals and they become one, in their minds and hearts! It is also a very usual thing to hear someone say – ‘he/she is my better half’ – this is more than just a statement. It means that the two people need each other to be complete.

Definition Of Soul Mate

  • Dating back to centuries ago, according to Plato – a soulmate is someone who has shared your life before.
  • Reincarnation and soul mates have a concept in common. A soulmate is someone that you have encountered many times in your life and at different times and all these times you’ve loved them.
  • Religious and spiritual views of soulmates affect how people view this matter. For example, can you have more than one soulmate in one lifetime? Typically, no. But again, some people believe in the concept of more than one soul mate.
