5 types of soul mates you’ll meet in your lifetime

You may have already met at least one soul mate, so don’t worry about wondering when you’ll meet the other.

Indeed, I did say “one” of your soul partners!

What is the number of our soul mates?

We will encounter five distinct kinds of soulmates in our lifetimes, and each one will be engaging, unforgettable, and vital to the development of your soul.

Every soulmate has a great influence on our lives and is incredibly meaningful and connected to us. While some soulmates remain in our lives forever, some depart sooner than we would prefer.

5 types of soulmates you’ll meet in your lifetime

Some of us find it difficult to have a profound, soulful connection with someone and then have to go through the process of realizing that their purpose in our lives has been fulfilled and it’s time to let go of them.

Not every soulmate is the romantic kind where you can declare, “We will love each other for eternity because we fell in love the moment our eyes met.” They’re not your exact duplicate, unlike what certain common beliefs might have you believe, nor are they guaranteed to become your life companion.

There are plenty of other kinds of soulmates: those who enter our lives only to impart wisdom, those who upend them and take us somewhere else, and those who only see us briefly yet leave us feeling as though we’ve known them forever.

5 Types of Soulmates You’ll Meet in Your Life

1. The Friendship Soulmate

Sometimes, we meet a person and click from the moment we lay eyes on each other. It’s as if we’ve known them our entire life, even if we’ve only known them a few minutes.

You tell each other everything. You could talk to this person for hours on end and never get bored. You share everything about yourself and they don’t judge you.

These types of soulmates actually know you better than you know yourself, which is why they are extremely important in your life. They “get you” in ways nobody else does and help you navigate your way through all of life’s trials and triumphs.

The friendship soulmate is a gift and one you should treasure your entire life. Because they are here to stay.

2. The Wrecking Ball Soulmate

This soulmate is not somebody that comes into our life peacefully. They enter in to shake things up. They challenge us and make us question everything we thought we knew about life. There is a clear “before them” and “after them” distinction when we look back on our lives and realize that we are now a completely different person than the day we met them.

This type of soulmate can come in many forms but it’s normally a romantic relationship that leaves us feeling as if we’ve been swept up like a tornado, taken for the ride of our life, and then dumped from the sky with no warning in an exhausted, tailspin heap.

Despite feeling like we don’t know what the hell happened since the ride was so fun when it first started, the beauty of this type of soulmate is that like a tornado hitting and leaving mass wreckage behind, we’re forced to rebuild from the ground up and can now make our new home (us) anything we want.

And most people rebuild something completely different and way more beautiful than what existed before.

3. The Lover/Affair Soulmate

These people don’t stay in our lives forever, but they come in as a lover and typically take on the form of a really beautiful relationship for a period of time. They might be our first love, an affair we had while being with someone else, or simply a lover who we had a no-strings-attached relationship with.

These soulmates are meant to be in our lives for a certain period of time to teach us about ourselves and other important lessons that will be poignant and meaningful down the road.

Typically, these types of relationships don’t start off with that “instant connection, butterflies in the stomach” feeling that we think we should feel with a potential partner, but over time it builds and the relationship turns into something serious and meaningful.

Soulmates like this often stay on good terms and become friends after their relationship ends, both realizing and acknowledging how much the other person taught them. Therefore that “soul connection” lasts a lifetime even though the romantic portion of the dynamic fades.

4. The Complete Stranger

This type of soulmate comes in the form of a very brief encounter with somebody you don’t know.

It might be the person you sat next to on a flight for a few hours. It may be someone you meet and spend time with one evening at a party. It can be as brief as an encounter with a stranger whose eyes yours meet on the street and you exchange just a few words with.

Typically the feeling is, “Oh! I recognize you!” Almost as if you’ve seen them before and are remembering them but can’t place where. If you believe in past lives, it’s typically because you are recognizing them as someone who truly is from your past.

The exchange is brief but intimate. They normally say something that you need to hear at the moment, validate something that you’ve been feeling or push you in a direction you need to go but are afraid.

You know in the depths of your soul the encounter meant something even though you never see them again.

5. Divine Love Soulmate

This is the soulmate every one of us desires to have. And if we’re lucky enough, we will meet them and live out the rest of our days on this earth together.

They encompass all of the above — the familiarity, the feeling of having known them for an entire lifetime moments after meeting them, the intense bond and connection that never goes away, the deep friendship, and the extraordinary, enchanted, deep-seated love.

May all of us have the good fortune of coming together with this person at some point in our lives!
