19 signs you have a deep metaphysical connection with someone

No-one likes to be lonely. Or alone.

Social connections have the power to lower anxiety and depression, help us regulate our emotions, and lead to higher self-esteem and empathy.

We all have an inherent need to feel connected with others.

A metaphysical connection goes beyond this.

You feel like you have known the other person your entire life.

They were instantly familiar to you, making you comfortable in their presence.

At times, it feels like you are the only two people in the world who share such a connection.

We are often drawn towards people because of this deeper connection. Quite simply, they make us feel happy.

What is a metaphysical connection?

As human beings, we are innately social at heart, constantly striving for that deep connection with someone else.

You’ve probably felt an intense attraction to someone in your life. We’re only human after all! It tends to be an attraction that is driven through our bodies.

A metaphysical connection goes beyond this and actually hits our mind, body, and soul.

You instantly feel like you’re meant for each other. Like you already know this person who you’ve just met.

A metaphysical connection isn’t just reserved for love relationships.

It can be with a family member. It can be with a friend.

Take away that romantic urge and a connection can still exist between two people, that goes just as deep.

What is a soulmate?

A soulmate is often wrongly labeled as a lover, romantic partner or spouse. The simple fact is, you don’t need to be romantically involved, or even attracted to each other to be soulmates. It’s about the depth of the connection you both share with each other.

When people find a metaphysical connection – they naturally want to hold onto it.

These connections can be hard to find. When you find your soulmate, you can’t even imagine being apart. Whether that soulmate is your best friend or your partner, you want to keep that person in your life.

Soulmates are brought together to remind each other of life’s purpose and to awaken your true self. They help you both discover who you really are.

The idea of a soulmate is to be your “one and only”. Yet, they can be your “one and only” for merely a matter of months – and still be your soulmate.

While you may not be destined to be with each other forever, you are destined to have a lasting impact on each other’s life.

This deeper connection you both share together will stay with you as you learn and grow from the relationship.

Here are 19 signs that you have a deep metaphysical connection with someone:

1) You both respect each other

Believe it or not, respect really is the foundation of any relationship.

Without respect, it is a very one-sided affair that can never reach that deeper, metaphysical level. It is simply destined to fizzle out.

Respect means accepting someone for who they are, even when you don’t agree with them.

When two people in a relationship respect each other, they are more likely to open up and feel comfortable in each other’s company.

When respect comes naturally in your relationship, you know you are onto something more meaningful. A place free of judgment, where you can both speak your mind and strengthen that bond you share.

It’s a true sign of a metaphysical relationship when you both support each other no matter your views.

2) You’re honest with each other

Respect, in turn, leads to honesty. Until you can be completely honest with your soulmate, you’ll find yourself unable to forge that deeper, metaphysical relationship.

Honesty breeds trust, which is the basis on which your relationship can thrive.

Let’s face it, we all have little secrets we want to keep hidden deep within.

It takes a metaphysical connection to drive these from the depths of our soul.

  • Do you find yourself opening up about things you have never shared with someone before?
  • Does the thought of lying to this person make your insides turn?
  • Do they open up to you as much as you do with them?

These are all signs you’re sharing a deeper connection and are both on the exact same wavelength together.

3) You feel as if you’ve known them your whole life

Whether you have just met this person, or they have been your best friend for years and years – you feel like you’ve known them your entire life. And you always have felt this way.

It’s a surreal feeling, but also a completely natural one as well.

When you meet your soulmate – whether you are 18 or 50 years old – the connection is instant.

There’s no doubt or fear in your mind. They are familiar to you straight away and you feel comfortable with them from the word go.

It won’t feel like you’re meeting for the first time. It will feel like you’ve known each other forever.

Think back to your first meeting with this person.

What did it feel like for you?

4) They brought out a hidden talent in you

Has this person discovered a hidden skill you never knew existed within you?

It’s likely you have that metaphysical connection other merely dream about.

That is the role of our soulmate. To help you discover who you are and exactly what life is all about. Cherish it!

Think of the flip side as well. Have you discovered a hidden talent in them and helped it to the surface? Remember, these relationships are two way, so it’s important to consider them from both perspectives.

5) You’ll do anything for each other

Have you ever felt a connection so strong you would throw yourself in front of a bus for that person?

You need this other person in your life and in all likelihood, they feel the same.

You know every little thing about each other and are always there when needed.

There is a strong desire to keep this person safe and happy. You need them to enjoy their life, simply so you can enjoy yours. Your happiness is dependent on theirs.

Your lives are intertwined.

It’s an amazing feeling to know that no matter what you do, this person will be there for you to help you out. No judgment. No questions asked.

Your relationship goes deeper than this.

6) You’re drawn to them

The truth is, you can’t forge a metaphysical connection.

As cliched as it sounds: it chooses you.

You walk into a room and your eyes lock. You instantly feel that connection and feel like you’ve known this person your whole life.

Even when you’re apart, you know this person is thinking of you.

You don’t even see anyone else in the room. It’s just you and this person.

Your gut takes the lead in this one and you have no way of fighting or shaking these feelings.

Think back to that first time you met. Do you remember how you felt?

When you walk into a room these days – are you still drawn to them? Do you still feel that instinctive pull?

This is a feeling that won’t leave you, no matter how long you know the person.

When it comes to a metaphysical attraction, these feeling simply grows.

7) You share meaningful conversations

Conversations are such an important element of our lives. Interactions with people in our lives are set up from that first conversation we share.

It takes a special person to be able to dive into the important conversations that mean something to us.

Meaningful conversations have been found to be one key to leading a happier life. It’s important for our wellbeing. But that doesn’t mean we can open up to just anyone.

By developing a metaphysical relationship, you have that one person you can turn to when you want to talk. You value and respect their opinion, which means you are offered new perspectives on life issues.

It shows you are both open to improvement while valuing each other’s role in this.

8) You laugh together

Never underestimate the importance of laughter in a relationship.

Laughter stimulates your heart, lungs, and muscles, while also increasing those endorphins. These magical chemicals release your body of stress and pain and help produce a feeling of euphoria.

Without laughter, you’re unable to dive into that deeper connection with this person. Sharing a laugh with someone actually fosters bonding.

It can create an intimacy that allows you to connect deeply.

9) The conversation flows

Everyone knows the awkwardness of that first date. Sitting across from the other person, conversation ideas running through your head.

Everyone that is, except soulmates. When it comes to the metaphysical connection – you simply skip this step.

Right from the get-go, you are brimming with conversation. You could talk into the early hours of the morning if time allowed it.

The fact is when you are with them the words flow so freely. There are no topics of conversation that are off-limits and nothing that can’t be said.

They want to know every detail of your life. You want to know every detail of theirs.

When you experience a metaphysical connection, these conversations enable you to explore your inner self and discover just who you are and what your purpose in life is.

You’re able to share your understanding of the world with each other.

10) The love is unconditional

The love you feel for this person is like nothing you have ever experienced before.

Your affection for them is without limits. There is nothing they can say or do that will change the way you feel about them.

This is the most sacred kind of love and something to be held and cherished.

Quite simply, you offer up this love to them, without requiring repayment. You don’t need them to love you back.

This deeper spiritual connection you form means you will always fight for each other and fight for your relationship. It goes deeper than any other connection in your life.

11) You trust them wholeheartedly

How many people do you have in your life that you can trust with your life?

Trust isn’t easy. It is earned and built on overtime. It takes a special person to build this bond with.

It is integral to a happy and fulfilling relationship.

If you don’t trust a person, how can you expect to connect with them?

Trust is a two-way street, and this person needs to trust you as much as you trust them for the relationship to work.

By developing this trust with each other, you can be your authentic selves and form this deeper spiritual connection.

12) You feel liberated around them

Society comes with strict rules on how to act, speak, and express ourselves.

It can be suffocating, to say the least.

One of the sure signs you have formed a metaphysical relationship is when you feel liberated around this person.

You no longer have to hide behind social normal and what is expected of you. You’re free to be yourself and act however you choose.

Nothing holds you back when you are with this person. It is freeing for your soul and helps you to breathe.

13) You communicate in silence

Who needs words these days?

When you are spiritually connected with someone, words are wasted.

They understand your needs and wants and know exactly what you are thinking and feeling without you saying a thing.

You might finish each other’s sentences, or recognize each other’s feelings the moment you walk through the door.

They will recognize your mood straight away and respond accordingly. Whether it’s to leave you alone or to offer a hug.

This type of connection provides the utmost comfort when you need it. You have someone who truly understands you and what you need from them at the moment.

14) You share plenty of similarities

They often say that opposites attract. While this might be true to some degree, when it comes to spiritual connections, you need to share similar life goals.

This allows you to share the same perspective on the future and to guide each other on this path.

It doesn’t mean you have to have the same dreams. Just be on a similar path.

This spiritual connection will make your relationship effortless. You are in tune with each other and working together in life.

15) You still lead separate lives

If you find it hard to be separated from this person and want to spend every waking hour with them, you are more than likely experiencing infatuation and not a metaphysical connection.

When you are deeply connected with someone, you find it easy to spend time apart, doing your own thing.

They don’t rule your life. They aid your life and support it on a deeper level.

A spiritual connection will not take over your life – it simply becomes a part of your life that you can rely on when you need to.

16) You’re calm around them

There is nothing like a strong metaphysical relationship to bring out your inner calm.

You can’t put your finger on it, but being around this person has an instant effect on you.

You lost your stresses of the day and feel so comfortable in their presence. You know if you need to talk, they will listen.

It’s comfortable. It’s natural. It’s a deeper connection that simply can’t be explained.

17) You challenge each other

What’s life without a few ups and downs thrown into the equation along the way.

When you share a deep connection with someone, they should be challenging you to be the best version of yourself.

They see inside you and understand you on a level no-one else does.

With this knowledge, they should want to push you to your limits. So you can get the most out of life.

You should also want to do the same for them.

18) You’re secure in the relationship

If you are friends, then a guy coming into the equation shouldn’t rock the boat.

When you share these deeper connections – it can’t be broken.

Nothing will get between the two of you. This is why you can go off and live your life without being attached at the hip.

The deeper understanding you have for each other is all it takes to be comfortable when you are together, and also when you are apart.

19) Your gut feeling tells you so

There is something to be said about that trusty gut feeling of yours.

When all is said and done, if you truly want to know whether you share a metaphysical connection with someone else – trust your gut.

What is it telling you?

Your gut feeling plays a role from the first time you meet this person, and then every moment you spend together afterward.

Intuition is a result of a lot of processing that happens in the brain, which is why you should listen to it.

How to find that deeper connection

Reading these signs, you may realize that your relationship hasn’t quite hit that metaphysical level. Don’t feel disheartened. If these connections were easy to forge, everyone would have one.

Instead, it might be worth seeking it out. While you can’t force a metaphysical connection, you can pre-empt one.

Think about your own likes and interests. These are the places you should frequent to meet a like-minded person. For example:

  • Find a new club or activity that resonates with you.
  • Reach out to old friends you felt a connection with.
  • Volunteer somewhere that is important to you.
  • Get to know the people you work with.
  • Attend community events.

Pay attention to your feelings. Let your gut instinct guide you to those connections and don’t force it. It could take time.

When you feel a strong connection with someone, do they feel it too?

Perhaps this post has helped you realize that you do share a metaphysical connection with someone. But it has you questioning whether or not that person feels it too?

A metaphysical connection goes so deep that it is likely they do share similar feelings. However, it is hard to know exactly what. Some people are simply more aware than others of their emotions and connections.

The best way to know is to simply ask them.

At the end of the day, a metaphysical connection is like no other. Recognize it for what it is and hold onto it for as long as possible. It has so much to teach you in the process.
