Throughout our lives, we encounter all kinds of people. With more than 7 billion human beings living on our planet, most of them we will likely never know. There are many who we will come across for a brief moment at the counter, on the street, at school, at a workplace or other daily routine situation. Last but not least, there are those, who will change our lives significantly and forever. Welcome to your soul family.
A soul family is a group of souls very familiar to each other. These souls feel like family members because they are a family in a spiritual sense. We, as human beings, are basically souls who come to the world as human beings in order to live their lives as such. When we think of groups and families, we naturally tend to think of our biological families, our colleagues at work, classmates at schools, friends, neighbors, etc. These are all people we are familiar with because we have met them and seem to know them best.
However, did you know that we can feel familiar with people we have never met before? Have you ever met someone for the first time and you thought you knew this person already? Have you ever felt such familiarity with someone that you could not explain? Have you loved someone so deeply and unconditionally even though all your societal standards, family values, and traditions told you not to? Have you ever felt a deep connection with someone you barely knew? Welcome to your soul family.
Your soul family consists of souls you already know regardless of whether you have ever met these souls as people in your life or not. In addition, some of your soul family members stay behind in spirit or left the Earth plane before you were born. Not all your soul family members will live together or near you in your life here. While some soul relationships will express themselves as biological or married family members, not all of your soul family members will be related to you this way. This is the reason why it happens that you might feel such a deep connection with someone you don’t even know that well. Perhaps you, the person, don’t. Your soul does.
This love comes from the divine, God, the universe, higher intelligence, or whatever name you give the entity in charge of creation. This love unites all of us no matter who we are. This love is eternal. This love comes from your soul. Next time, when you feel a deep connection with someone regardless of whether they are related to you or not, familiar to you or not, don’t wonder about what others would say. Instead, enjoy this unconditional love and be grateful that you have found one of your soul family members. One day I’ll write more about how to find your soul family.
Meanwhile, I’ll send you my love, soul family. Soul mother, happy Mother’s Day.
