Recognizing soulmate energy: 24 signs to look out for

You know that feeling when you meet someone and you feel like they are your other half?

Well, it turns out science has a name for this emotion: soulmate energy.

You don’t have to wait until your fate brings you together — here are 24 signs that the person in front of you might be your long-lost love.

1) There’s always a spark between you two, no matter what happens

You might be wondering:

What kind of spark is this?

Well, it’s a spark that involves deep, intense feelings — almost like what you might feel while falling in love.

Eye contact makes your heart stop.

When you lock eyes with this person, there’s a sense of calm that washes over you.

Hearing this person’s voice on the phone gives you chills

It doesn’t matter what the conversation is about — hearing their voice makes your heart flutter.

There’s a clear bond between the two of you, even if you don’t say it out loud

You can just feel that connection, and there’s no need to define it or talk about it.

People might think you’re crazy for feeling so strongly about someone so early on — but that connection is there nonetheless.

2) They don’t try to change you, but rather celebrate your quirks and talents

You’re probably used to the idea of “hanging out” with someone — especially if you’re just starting out on a new relationship.

But when you find a soulmate, it’s more like you’ve found someone that understands you completely — and wants to celebrate your quirks and talents.

They don’t try to change you in any way — they simply accept who you are at this point in your life.

They see you as a whole and complete person, flaws and all, and they love you exactly as you are.

They’re not trying to mold or shape you into something different or something better — they just love who you already are, exactly as you are.

And that is a wonderful thing.

3) You feel at ease when you’re with this person and their presence is soothing

You can’t help it — when you’re around this person, your eyes just light up and your mind is still.

You feel at ease like they can put you completely at ease in even the most stressful situations.

And that’s like a superpower — all of a sudden, you feel calm and relaxed again, and you know that person is the reason why.

They somehow make everything seem less stressful by just being in your presence — and that’s an incredible thing to have.

So what does all this mean?

That’s a sign that you have found your soulmate — you’ve reached a level of connection with someone that is powerful and meaningful beyond words.

4) A highly intuitive advisor confirms it

The signs I’m revealing in this article will give you a good idea about whether or not you are around your soulmate.

But could you get even more clarity by speaking to a gifted advisor?

Clearly, you have to find someone you can trust. With so many fake experts out there, it’s important to have a pretty good BS detector.

After going through a messy break-up, I recently tried Psychic Source. They provided me with the guidance I needed in life, including who I am meant to be with.

I was actually blown away by how kind, caring, and genuinely helpful they were.

A gifted advisor can not only tell you if you’ve met someone that is meant to be in your life, but they can also reveal all your love possibilities.

5) You’re both in tune with each other’s needs and wants

Have you wondered why your two hearts seem to fit together so perfectly?

Maybe you’ve both been feeling a bit restless, or maybe you’ve both just been looking for a new job.

But whatever it is, nothing seems to be “wrong” or out of the ordinary — everything has made sense.

And you have recognized that this is what has been missing in your life: a perfectly compatible partner.

Whether it’s in business, romance, or friendship, it’s hard to find someone that you are truly compatible with.

That’s why it always feels so good when you finally come across the right person.

They understand what you want and need without having to tell them — and vice versa.

You are both in tune with one another — which is another sign of soulmate energy.

6) You two are attracted to the same things, but not in a shallow way

You’re both into old movies or the sports team your town (or even state) is associated with.

You both like reading certain books and have similar tastes in music, which means that when this person buys a new CD, it’s yours.

You know what I mean?

The list goes on…

On top of that, spending time together is fun and feels natural — it’s not like a forced effort.

So even though you have a lot in common, it doesn’t feel cliche or boring.

You are privy to your lover’s preferences and personality traits — something that can only happen when you’re connected with someone on an emotional level.

The more you know about the person, the more you are drawn to them.

It’s like two magnets meeting in the middle and creating a powerful, magnetic force between the two of you.

Sometimes, soulmate energy can be platonic, but most of the time, there is a powerful physical attraction as well.

7) There’s never any pressure between you two, even at your most vulnerable moments

When you hear that a person is a soulmate, you assume they have all the time in the world to express their feelings.

But when you feel connected with someone, there’s no need to say those three little words that are so important: “I love you.”

Your connection isn’t about pressure, it’s about acceptance.

It’s about someone knowing exactly what makes your heart flutter and not even making you feel weird for saying it out loud.

But wait, there’s more!

You know that when you tell them something that is bothering you, they won’t put pressure on you to “get over it”.

They’ll listen without judgment and be there to cheer you on or provide comfort when it’s needed.

And they always leave a light in the room when they leave.

8) You can’t get enough of them, physically or emotionally

Being in love with someone makes you want to spend all the time you can with them.

When you’re in a relationship, there’s always some sort of physical attraction between you two.

But when it’s the “soulmate” connection, it’s even stronger.

You don’t even have to see this person on a daily basis — but when they are around, your every need is met.

With no pressure on you to act on that attraction, you can pursue your relationship knowing that it’s mutual.

You just look forward to being around this person.

No matter what else is going on in your life or what activities you have to do outside of the relationship, there will always be something about this person that makes them worth putting time into.

9) You have never felt this level of love for anyone else in your life

Have you ever been in love before?

You know what I mean — the kind of love that completely consumes your mind, body, and soul.

And you know how good it feels to be in this state, right?

It’s like a drug — something that drives you crazy and can’t be stopped.

This feeling is so strong, that it starts to consume you even when you’re not together with your soulmate.

You want to find a way to express your love and tell them how much you miss them when you’re not together.

Your soulmate isn’t someone who is just good for you — they’re someone who’s incredibly important and special in your life.

You don’t just want them around, you need them to be with you.

Because when they’re there, everything feels right in the world — it’s magic between the two of you.

10) You’re always on the same wavelength with them

Imagine what it would be like:

Being in a relationship where you can always pick up on what the other person is thinking.

You can finish each other’s sentences and always know what they’re thinking.

In a way, it’s like having an old soul.

You’re so attuned to the person that it’s as if you’ve lived many lives together.

And when you think about someone who can make you feel this way, your mind instantly drifts back to your soulmate.

You could stare at them for hours and never get bored because there’s never a dull moment with them.

And you know what’s even better?

You can communicate your thoughts and feelings to them without having to worry about the other person knowing what you’re thinking.

It’s like you’re in your own little world — it’s sweet, soothing, and makes you feel happy and comfortable.

When you think about it, that must be what it feels like to find a true soulmate

11) There’s a sense of longing for the future

pexels rodnae productions 8231148 Recognizing soulmate energy: 24 signs to look out for

One of the signs that you’ve recognized soulmate energy is a feeling of longing for the future.

You want to see where this energy can take you and how it can change your life.

It’s like you’ve been given another chance at love, but you’re so ready for it.

You don’t want to waste any more time when you already feel so strongly about the person you’re with.

You know that with this person you will have a great life – no matter how long you have to wait for things to happen.

You can always expect to get so much more out of your relationship, and you look forward to the day when you finally spend that special night together.

That’s why looking into these signs is so important — make sure that your connection is more than just a fling or crush.

12) There’s been an undeniable change in your life since first meeting them

Have you ever found yourself thinking about the changes in your life after meeting this person?

Things that happened could only have occurred because of this person.

Maybe it’s out of the ordinary or maybe it’s something you’ve always wanted.

For example, maybe you’ve always wanted to go on a romantic vacation — but before meeting this person, you would never have imagined it happening.

Or maybe your finances started improving after you met them – without them, there’s no way that would have happened.

Either way, you know that your relationship with this person is making a difference in your life.

In a way, they’ve literally changed you.

It may not be immediately noticeable but to you, there’s a noticeable change in the way you think and feel.

In short:

This could be a sign that you’ve found your soulmate.

13) They both push and encourage you to try new things

You know what?

All of a sudden it feels like the sky’s the limit.

You see things you’ve never done or even thought possible in your life.

And whenever you mention them, this person suggests that maybe you should give it a try!

They make all the scary things seem so doable, which is something that can make any relationship work — if both people are committed to being there for each other.

That’s the soulmate energy talking!

So take the next step:

Pull up a chair and take some time to think about this person.

If you could spend your entire life with them, would you?

14) They make you feel like you’re the most important person in the world

When you’re with the person you love, all of a sudden it feels like the most precious thing in the world.

Like you’re standing in a beautiful blue ocean and they’re holding you up while giving you everything they have — all of their strength, willpower, and passion to give you everything they have.

You feel so close that even though everything is going wrong, you still can’t imagine life without them.

It’s like time stands still when this person is around — it’s magical.

And the best part of all is that they make you feel like you’re the most important person in the world.

They let you know that no matter what happens, your feelings are important to them.

You’re not just a part of their life — you’re their entire life.

NOTE: This can also happen with soulmate energy, and it’s definitely a sign that this person is important to you.

15) You are constantly nervous and anxious when you don’t know where they are

Another sign to look out for is being completely nervous and anxious when you don’t know where your soulmate is.

The thought of not knowing where they are drives you crazy.

You wonder if something bad could happen to them or if they got hurt somehow.

It’s like you’ve invested a lot in this relationship and can’t bear the thought of losing it.

The anxiety fades away when you’re able to find them, and everything seems all right again…until the next time.

But what are the other things you should look out for?

Earlier, I mentioned how helpful the advisors at Psychic Source were when I was facing difficulties in life.

Although there’s much we can learn about a situation from articles like this, nothing can truly compare to receiving a personalized reading from a gifted person.

From giving you clarity on the situation to supporting you as you make life-changing decisions, these advisors will empower you to make decisions with confidence.

16) You have the constant urge to be with them

You know what I’m talking about, right?

You just have this urge to be with them all the time — like you’re willing to drop anything else in order to spend time together.

It makes you feel so strong and full of confidence.

And it’s a great feeling — because it makes you feel like they want to be with you just as much as you want to be with them.

But you know what else?

It’s a feeling that you can’t quite put your finger on.

The best way to describe it is that you feel like they’re the breath of fresh air that you’ve been longing for!

That’s why looking into signs of having soulmate energy is so important.

17) There’s a real connection that goes beyond any words and is deeper than friendship

There’s a real connection that you two share and it goes beyond words.

It’s deeper than friendship and it has a feeling all its own.

It’s like every time you see them or hear their voice, there is an undeniable spark of energy that pulls you close to them over and over again.

It’s a little hard to explain but when you feel it, you’ll know it.

It’s soulmate energy.

So if you find yourself getting more nervous and anxious after talking to a person for a little bit, that could be a big sign.

That person is someone you are very close to and want to spend more time with.

18) Your spirit soars when you’re around them and falls whenever they leave your side

josue michel q1c zACVgw unsplash 1 Recognizing soulmate energy: 24 signs to look out for

This is a big sign to look out for.

When you see it, your spirit soars and your energy is at its peak.

Just like the person themselves, your spirit lifts and you feel on top of the world.

Your imaginative world becomes ultra-clear and bright like it’s all possible with that person in your life.

When you’re not with them, everything feels a little awkward and cloudy.

It’s like the light has gone out somehow, and you’re not happy being away from them.

And it just seems like your days aren’t complete without this person in your life.

19) They inspire you to feel emotions that you didn’t know existed

There’s this feeling that comes over you like a wave of emotions when he/she is around.

You feel everything.

It’s like little pieces of your soul are being picked up and put back together into something even more beautiful and full of life than before.

For example, sometimes you might feel a sense of peace and love you’ve never felt before and it’s like you can’t feel anything but that.

Other times, there’s an intense sadness that overwhelms your entire being as if they’re the only thing in your world.

And it’s obvious that this person’s presence in your life is one big reason for these new feelings.

As time goes on, it just gets better and better.

The waves become more frequent, the colors are brighter, and it makes you feel like there’s a new world out there to explore.

It all comes from soulmate energy.

20) You feel seen for who you are on the inside

There’s something about the person that makes you feel seen for who you really are on the inside.

It’s like when you look in their eyes, you see a part of yourself there.

You know so much about them and you feel respected and wanted at the same time.

And as an added bonus, this person also makes you really happy — even though this is probably your first relationship.

You might wonder what in the world has gone right inside your relationship with this person.

You feel like everything’s great and you’re feeling pretty happy about this person.

But you don’t want to let them go because it feels so right.

If their presence in your life has brought so much happiness, then, by all means, don’t let them go — regardless of what they have to say.

21) There’s a comfort in the other person’s presence

So you’re out at a party and everyone’s so warm and friendly.

But when you feel an extreme sense of comfort in their presence, it’s likely that you have recognized soulmate energy.

It’s like all your worries fade away and all your worries fade away when you’re around them.

You have this sense of peace and security that makes it easy for you to simply be yourself around them.

It almost feels like they are the force that keeps all your worries at bay.

But that’s not all.

You can just tell that something about them — some quality you cannot put your finger on — makes you feel like everything’s alright in the big scheme of life.

It’s like you know that everything will be okay if they’re in your life.

22) You’re more interested in helping them than anyone else

They have a way of pulling you into their world and making you want to help them make life great.

You don’t even think about helping other people first because you want to help this person.

When you’re with them, your heart’s on their side and it doesn’t care about anything going on in the rest of the world.

This person has a way of making you feel like they are your top priority and that you will do anything in your power to help them.

And strangely, there’s not even one bit of question about whether or not you should be helping them.

You just know that you want to help them and make their life great.

23) You trust them without question

Here’s an interesting fact:

You can trust your intuition without question.

You feel so safe around this person that you just trust them to do the right thing.

This person has the best intentions in mind and you are ready to do whatever it takes to support them in any way possible.

It’s almost like you have a sixth sense regarding them — one that tells you they are not only a good person but someone that can be trusted without question.

This person is, for lack of a better word, genuine.

And it’s obvious in the way they carry themselves that they are a good person who would never do anything to hurt you.

It’s like all your worries and fears fade away while you’re around them.

Even if they disappear today, you know that everything will be ok because of their presence in your life (and there’s something special about that).

24) There’s a comfortable silence between you both

Do you feel comfortable just sitting next to this person?

If so, it’s probably because there’s a comfortable silence between the two of you.

Every once in a while, they’ll say something that makes you smile — but most of the time, they’re just comfortable enough to be silent with you.

The best part is that it really doesn’t matter if there’s silence or not because the way they carry themselves somehow fills the void.

It’s like the two of you are in a forever state of peace.

And there’s something else that makes it seem like they were born to love you unconditionally and that they will stay with you forever.

It’s almost like there is this familiarity between the two of you that is impossible to explain.

That’s when you know you have soulmate energy with this person.

Final thoughts

Your relationship does not have to be perfect in order for you to recognize soulmate energy for what it is.

You do not have to stay together with your soulmate forever — and, in fact, that’s highly unlikely.

However, recognizing it while it’s there can be an enlightening experience.

So if you feel it, know that there’s no need to let go of the person because they bring so much happiness into your life.

We’ve covered 24 signs of soulmate energy but if you want to get a completely personalized explanation of this situation and where it’ll lead you in the future, I recommend speaking to the folks over at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier on. When I got a reading from them, I was blown away by how kind and genuinely helpful they were.

Not only can they give you more direction on the soulmate energy you’re feeling, but they can advise you on what’s really in store for your future.
