Few have experienced such sensations: you meet a person for the first time, you begin to communicate and it seems that you have known him for many years. Understanding from a half word, the interaction of the first days of dating between people can only appear when there is a karmic connection between them.
Karma is the influence of the past in today’s circumstances, the fate of a person. Certainly the karmic connection was not born exactly like this: knowledge of the soul means that souls have been familiar for a long time and have met in one of the previous lives.
If a karmic bond arises between a woman and a woman – in the past life they could be friends or be closely related, between a woman and a man – the connection was either related or love. Karmic partners meet to end past relationships in this life: get closer or finally break.
In short, we often hear about karmic love or predestined love, of those loves that belong to a distant past, unknown to us, loves and unions that concern one or more past lives.
This belief, widespread especially in Eastern philosophy, has to do with the concept of reincarnation and is based on the fact that there exist, or rather, have existed relationships with individuals that we can meet again in our current life.
A peculiar characteristic of this feeling is a strong magnetic attraction between the two who meet, and who through precise signals are able to understand immediately not to represent any person for each other.
Karmic love should not be confused with the concept of soul mates. In fact, this type of feeling may seem romantic, but sometimes it is not. Often the karmic couple has to overcome hard tests, difficulties which are called outstanding accounts, and which refer to our distant past.
Karmic relationships have both a power of regeneration and a power of degeneration and will transform our being and indelibly. Therefore, karmic loves are neither the soul mate, let alone the twin flame. What are they then?
If the soul mate is a person with whom a very strong complicity is created and with whom one almost never quarrels, while the twin flame represents the complementary half of our soul, male or female, karmic love is instead a relationship very complex and problematic.
According to scholars, there are different types of karmic relationships between souls, which are always found to settle the outstanding account. A karmic soul mate is not said to have been our lover in a previous life, he may even have been a brother, a parent, even our current the worst enemy.
One could have loved and the other hated, or it is possible that the relationship was complicit and idyllic. The possibilities are many, but one thing is certain: if you believe in karmic love, you need to solve the karma and the previous life lesson that it bears.
The intensity of the gaze and the feeling of familiarity are the first clues that characterize the recognition between two souls. The meeting is the bearer of a sort of magic, strong and intense signals, which make the couple presage that they did not meet by chance.
Scholars agree on defining the return of a karmic love like a powerful hurricane that will upset our existence: we immediately experience a strong empathy and a feeling of union and closeness and the presence of that person will make us enter into a kind of spell, it will make us think that we have always known it, even if we have just introduced ourselves; and its proximity will be like a kind of magic.
Although many do not think about it, they are unconsciously living their karmic relationship; There are many clues that lead us to predict that our relationship may actually be karmic. First, you need to keep in mind the five characteristics that could lead you to assume that you are experiencing a karmic relationship with almost absolute certainty:
1) Immediate familiarity, it seems to you that there are no obstacles between you;
2) Need to share everything, an impulse to always explain what you think;
3) Feeling of “dejavu” moments that you seem to have already lived;
4) Need to travel together, review places that belong to you;
5) Feeling of belonging, as if you don’t want to lose this love.
It is “almost” necessary to feel that you belong only to one of these five points, to continue with the deepening of karma, since you are most likely living in one of these relationships.
Most esoteric schools of thought claim that souls reincarnate in groups: in different lives we meet our old friends and enemies, the same ones with whom at the beginning of time we decided to share our stay on earth. These “travel companions” help us in evolution and it is through them that we have the opportunity to learn the most important lessons.
The difference between soul mates and soul mates is actually very difficult to define: some schools of thought argue that the latter, unlike the soul mates, find themselves to perform certain earthly tasks necessary for evolution and that, for this purpose, they help each other.
The soul mates, however, would share a much more metaphysical and spiritual ideal. Interestingly, however, other reliable spiritual currents are much more vague in this regard.
Many sources claim that the soul has no pre-established female or male polarity, since the otherworldly world from which it originates has as its principle the indissoluble Unity: the female and male polarity is the result of the earthly plane (the plane of duality) and the soul chooses to dive into this dualistic principle just to experience Earth.
In reality, the soul would contain both principles within itself, and the earthly purpose of each human being would be to achieve what the alchemists called “alchemical marriage”: that is, the perfect inner fusion of the male and female principle. Therefore, there would not be a perfect soulmate for each of us, but multiple and beloved companion souls with whom to proceed along the difficult earthly path and with whom to share the joys and sorrows of human beings.
According to the law of karma, as already mentioned, any “negative” action taken against other human beings needs to be welded in some way in a subsequent life. So, the souls who have an outstanding account, sooner or later end up finding themselves together.
In this case they have not necessarily accompanied and loved each other in many other previous lives (sometimes only one is enough): they find themselves and that’s all and between them a love story can arise that has as its purpose the balance of an ancient debt. This type of relationship is very common and is recognized because, once the story is over, not many remains of the original feeling.
These are often stories that bring a certain degree of suffering, since the pain inflicted by a soul in a distant time comes from it immediately in current life.
It is not a punishment, as it might seem, but a hard school of learning: only by experiencing that same pain, the soul becomes aware of what it means to suffer and, therefore, how cruel it is to cause suffering. And this, like any other lesson, can be learned or rejected: karmic relationships (like all important relationships) do not teach us something, but simply give us the opportunity to learn.
We know well that suffering can make us harder or more compassionate: how and if we learn the lesson will be up to us. If the soul refuses to learn, it will be postponed to another exam: once again, facing it will be inevitable; its outcome, however, will be in our hands.
There is no doubt: the meeting with a loved soul is always predestined. It is written in destiny as in the stars and it never happens out of pure chance. What is rare is not so much the meeting (as one might believe) but mutual recognition and the ability to live this experience serenely.
What prevents us from recognizing ourselves? Ourselves. Our fears. And above all what we reject. This is why the journey in search of the other is above all a trip to search of ourselves, to the recovery of those parts of us less loved that make it difficult for us to live any love experience fully.
