“We’ve all been in the situation where we’ve met someone new but have this immediate and deep connection – sometimes to the point of being able to anticipate what they are going to say next – or feeling as if they’ve been in our life forever.” – Michele Knight, Psychic
We often become fixated on explaining everything in our lives, looking to science and ‘the facts’ in an effort to define the events that occur around us. The problem with this mindset is that there is so much that defies explanation. From our unpredictable feelings and emotions to the unbelievable miracles that we experience, life is always full of twists, turns, and surprises.
If you have ever met someone only to feel as though they have always held a place in your life, it may be hard to put exactly how you are feeling into words. This unspoken connection may not have an explanation here and now, in this life, but look back a little further. Experts say that approximately 51% of the world’s population believe that there is some sort of afterlife, with approximately 7% believing in reincarnation. This belief states that most of us were born and lived lives prior to the one that we are currently living. While we may not recall these past lives consciously, we subconsciously maintain memories and experiences, often relived in our dreams.
While we may live many different lives, there are a number of factors that are carried over from life to life. For example, our beliefs and values are often maintained. There are also people that we are destined to meet, cosmically connected we find one another in each life, falling for each other all over again. But how do you know if you have found the partner that the Universe has sent to you?
Here are 13 signs that you have met a love from a past life:
#1 – You Instantly Feel as Though You Can Share Everything
You may not be able to explain it, but as soon as you met this person you immediately felt comfortable enough to share everything and anything with them. From your biggest fears to your greatest accomplishments, your favorite childhood memories to your family dynamics. There is no topic that feels awkward or off limits. You feel understood and accepted.
#2 – You Can Read One Another Like a Book
There is no point in trying to hide what you are thinking or feeling from this person, as they can see right through even your best efforts. The great news is that nothing in your relationship ever feels forced or strained. It is important, however, to remember that you can’t keep a secret from this person. They could read you like a book in your past lives and they still can today.
#3 – When You Meet It’s Highly Emotional
The second that you meet one another you are overwhelmed by emotion. Not necessarily the sad, heartbreaking, depressing kind – but powerful, life-changing emotions. You may feel excited, surprised, comforted or overjoyed. In fact, you may not even be able to identify the emotions, you just know that you never want to lose this person in your life.
#4 – You Feel More Like Yourself
There are two different kinds of people that you are going to meet in this life. There are those who are going to build you up, encouraging and supporting you in all of your efforts in life. On the other hand, there are also those who will spend their lives tearing you down and destroying your dreams. When you meet a love from a past life, this is someone who has already shown you that they are there for you and will continue to support you in this life and beyond.
#5 – You Can Communicate Telepathically
Your connection and ability to communicate aren’t restricted by mere verbal communication, in fact, you are connected at such a deep level that you can pass messages to one another, regardless of distance, from soul to soul. This is due to your cosmic connection, a connection that has existed throughout time and will continue to exist into eternity.
#6 – You Immediately Feel Comfortable
There is a period of time in most relationships where you are getting to know one another. While exciting this phase can also be awkward, fixating on what to do in order to make your new partner feel comfortable in your presence. This phase doesn’t exist when you meet a lover from your past life. Immediately connecting on a deeper level, you are comfortable, understood and accepted for who you are without question. You don’t need to try to ‘be better’ because you know that they love you for exactly who you are here and now.
#7 – An Instant Connection is Created
When you meet this individual, a bond is instantly created, and not just any bond. This is a deep, powerful and unbreakable bond, stronger than anything you have ever experienced before. Your relationship is formed effortlessly, and you instantly feel as though you’ve known each other your whole lives.
#8 – You Feel Highly Connected Regardless of Distance
There are many people in this world that you may feel connected to when you are living through the same situations – the neighbours that live within your community or your co-workers for example, however when you meet up with a love from a past life you don’t need to share an obvious connection in your physical life in order to feel connected. Instead, you feel connected regardless of where you go or how far you are apart, confident you will cross paths again.
#9 – They Make You Feel Butterflies in Your Stomach
It’s like a scene right out of the movies! When you meet that special someone your heart begins to race and you feel butterflies in your stomach. You feel love at first sight, like something right out of your favorite romance movie. If the second you catch one another’s eyes your palms begin to sweat and you can’t help but grin from ear to ear this may be the sign that this isn’t a new love, but rather a rediscovery of a love story that has existed throughout your past lives.
#10 – You Share Past Life Memories
Many of us experience memories from our past lives, often experienced through our dreams. If you are comparing these ‘memories’ with another you may begin to notice that there are some remarkable similarities, such as living in the same country or at a common point in time. If you share a large number of memories from your past lives, they were likely experienced together.
#11 – They Make You Feel Beautiful
Whether you are dressed up at a fancy restaurant or lazing around in your sweats watching a movie at home, they leave you feeling confident in who you uniquely are. From the moment you first me they have made you feel like the most attractive person alive, showing you time and time again that they only have eyes for you.
#12 – Your Connection Startles and Scares You
If you find yourself so deeply connected that it actually scares you, don’t take this as a bad sign. Many of us are afraid of being hurt, and so the idea of being so deeply tied in with another being can be frightening. It feels so perfect, and so ‘right,’ that you can’t help but wonder if it’s too good to be true. Rest assured, these deep, cosmic connections really do exist!
#13 – When You’re Together You Lose Track of Time
Anytime that you are spending together you feel as though you leave the constraints and limitations of time behind you, living only in the moment. It’s as though you create your own reality, shared only between the two of you. When you do come back around you realize that what seemed like only minutes was really hours.
