Quotes about soulmates

Do you believe in soulmates?

Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person, we’re safe in our own paradise.” – Richard Bach

“If you want to attract a life partner as your soulmate, there are several illusions you will need to relinquish. One is that your soulmate is someone you will be with for the rest of your life.

“Most people have more than one soulmate. A soulmate can come in the form of a life partner, friend, child, or lover.

Part of living as humans is experiencing almost unexplainable deep connections to others. 

Sometimes we’re simply getting on with our lives when a person enters and shakes up our entire worldview. Eventually, we develop a soul connection, whereby a relationship or friendship’s ups and downs make us realize that this person is significant to us. 

If you feel like you’re missing your soulmate right now, that someone is out there, but you haven’t met them yet, understand that meeting your soulmate requires some work.

The work is not about looking for that person or settling for less just because you’ve found someone to be close with. 

The work is about going on a journey of self-discovery, where you get to know yourself better. 

When you make this journey inward and practice honesty, authenticity, and self-compassion, you’ll prime your soul to be ready for when a soulmate comes along.
