15 things that happen when two old souls meet (complete guide)

Are you an old soul looking for the one?

What if you’ve just met the love of your life but can’t help but worry that they might not be the one or the old soul for you?

Don’t fret!

There are things that happen when two old souls meet, and the odds of your love being the real deal are in your favor.

Here are 15 things that will happen when two old souls meet.

1) Both of you will have an aura of “light” around you that’ll draw people to you.

People will be moved to action on your behalf; people will feel compelled to offer you help, “for your good”.

Happy people will make you happy because they are attracted to your energy.

Your heart will be appreciated and loved by many, while you will be a source of passionate advice and mentoring for them.

The world is your oyster!

You will attract others who want to share their knowledge or wisdom with you and that makes you happy.

When old souls are in the presence of each other, the entire world seems to light up.

It’s like two stars join together to shine more brightly!

So don’t worry if your other half gives the impression of not being interested in you.

Chances are he/she is just overwhelmed by your light.

He/she is merely being observant, absorbing and storing what they hope to learn from you.

You may even find that they appear to be having a spiritual awakening as they begin to open up more and more to you.

Yes, this is the best way to discover if two old souls really might be soulmates.

2) Old souls have very heightened sensitivities to other people’s emotions and vibrations.

Now, this is a good one!

Your partner’s ability to read your thoughts and feelings will trigger your partner’s desire to do the same with you.

Before you know it, both of you have stopped holding back your feelings and become vulnerable.

You are no longer hanging back; instead, you are completely present, giving yourself completely and openly to this new relationship.

They can sense your moods when you are around and will be astounded by how much you “speak” to them.

This, in turn, makes them more aware of their own aura/energy/vibes and how others perceive them.

They will begin to notice the patterns in their own lives that aren’t working and strive to do better with their lives from now on.

Old souls bring out the best in each other.

3) When old souls meet, they magically harmonize in one another’s presence.

When old souls meet, they instinctively know all the right things to do to serve one another at all times.

You may wonder why.

This is because your old souls get along so well and are already so aligned.

You’ll find that you can feel each other’s vibrations so well and know exactly what they need.

For instance, you’ll find that you can move effortlessly together in sync which is a beautiful experience.

You know how much they love their families, friends, pets, and hobbies.

You’ll also notice that you can read each other’s thoughts ahead of time and will have a sense of destiny when you meet; something unspoken that tells the other that “this is it” for both of you.

When you are sitting across from each other, you both feel the same level of vibration.

You can tell that your vibrations match somehow.

It’s like you have a highly developed telepathic connection that makes you feel like you are on the same wavelength.

As a matter of fact, it’s as if your hearts are pulsating at the same frequency, matching perfectly with each other and with the world around you.

My prediction was spot on!

At first, I thought this was just pure luck.

This look is full of love, compassion, transparency, and truthfulness.

9) Both of you will be able to tell your life story in just one sentence (or less).

11) You’ll feel your soul’s prayers for you as if they were your own.

When old souls connect, the prayers that their souls make for each other during their lifetime will be unconsciously fulfilled.

This means that the person your soul has been pining for will finally appear in your life.

It’s like an answered prayer, right?

Your soul was so focused on bringing you together with one another that they inadvertently surrounded you with people and events that would bring you to your other half.

Old souls have no choice but to recognize each other once they meet.

The force of destiny is so strong, that it can’t be ignored.

They may not know why or how, but it just feels right at first glance.

This is because one soul can connect to its higher self and pray for the other person’s highest good.

Once this prayer is answered, it feels as though you’ve had a breakthrough in your life.

And when you meet each other, the puzzle becomes complete!

13) You will take each other’s wants, needs, and desires almost like they are your own.

What does it feel like to care so much for another person’s welfare?

Old souls not only want what’s best for the other person, but they also want to make them happy.

They understand that being in a relationship means that you are connected to someone on a deep spiritual level.

That means you get to be there for each other through the good and bad times.

They know what it means to be in a partnership, so they will never leave their partner at the first sign of trouble.

14) The first kiss is a powerful experience.

When old souls meet, one of the first things they experience is a powerful physical attraction for each other.

They have this intense, spiritual feeling of connection to their partner from the first moment they see them.

This makes both of them feel like they’ve been looking for each other their entire lives.

They feel like they have finally found the missing piece to their puzzle.

And when they finally kiss, they know they are with the right one.

The two of you can’t get enough of each other.

You feel like you’ve known this person all your life.

You trust them, and them trusting you back feels so right!

This is because old souls don’t feel the need to hide anything from one another.

They feel as though they can say whatever is on their mind without fear of judgment.

They understand that they are in a partnership, so they can speak freely without fear of being judged.

They feel like their partner has been longing for this moment just as much as they have!

And finally:

15) Both of you will be so in love with each other that you can just do nothing but support and love each other.

Falling in love with an old soul is one of the most intense, magical experiences one could ever have.

These people have so much love to give that you will never be able to feel empty again.

But wait, there’s more!

It’s not just the amount of love and support they offer you that makes them so awesome.

They also know exactly how to bring out the best in you by giving you a connection like no other.

Old souls never get bored or feel lonely because they are meant to be together.

They’re the types who will see life through the same eyes and perceive it in the same way; they do not just mirror images of each other, they are one in their thoughts and feelings.

They are also the type of people who will express their love for you in unique ways every single day.

This is because they know exactly how to express their innermost feelings in a way that touches your heart and soul.

If you ever meet an old soul, then trust me when I say that they are the real deal.


Because if they are there, then it’s because the two of you were meant to be together.

And there you have it!

Old souls are quite a unique breed.

They are the type of souls that take all their previous life lessons, knowledge, and experiences and apply them to their new lives.

This is because they are not just living in the present; they are living in the past and future as well, simultaneously.

They have all the qualities that make people who they are today: introspective, accepting, philosophical, intuitive, unselfish, creative, and self-aware.

When old souls connect, most of the signs above will come with it.

Why does this happen?

Because when two old souls come together in a relationship, then the relationship is going to be intense, meaningful, and unforgettable.

Have you connected with an old soul?

And if you have met one, then tell me about your experience.
