Types of unexplainable connections
Some connections are just different from anything you’ve ever experienced before. These connections are special and influence your life in some way or the other.
These can often turn out to be your spiritual connections, twin flames, or even your soulmates. Let’s learn a little more about each one of these.
1. Spiritual connection
You feel the energy shift when you encounter them. People who have spiritual connections share similar values and beliefs about what is important to them. They tend to help and look out for one another like a team and are responsible towards each other.
A twin flame is an intense soul connection with someone who is thought to be a person’s other half. It’s based on the idea that sometimes one soul gets split into two bodies. They are “mirror souls” so to speak.
A twin flame connection can heal you and challenge you at the same time. It will reveal the deepest insecurities, fears, and shadows and help both of you to overcome them individually. Twin Flame relationships do not last very long.
The soulmate connection isn’t temporary. It goes beyond initial chemistry and “love at first sight.” A soulmate is someone who completely understands you and loves you unconditionally. It’s an undeniable connection.
A soulmate relationship is based on total trust, respect, forgiveness, and contribution. It is like two different souls extraordinarily linked with each other.
4. Kindred spirits
Kindred spirits are those people with whom you pretty much agree on all of the small and big stuff.
You love the same things; laugh at the same jokes; agree and disagree with love and affection; compete with zeal but without bitterness or jealousy. These people share the same journey towards truth and love, just as you.
5. Karmic connections
Karmic connections are people who have the same life mission/purpose as yours. You’re both here together to make a difference in the world, and your skills complement one another.
This kind of relationship doesn’t involve love or intimacy and instead requires you to put your best self forward to achieve something that matters.
Can you be connected to someone you have never met?
You can be feeling an unexplainable connection with someone you’ve never met. These experiences are rare, and only the lucky ones get to experience such connections.
Yes! You can definitely experience a deep connection with someone you’ve never met at all. These connections go beyond our understanding of the physical world.
They are mostly Karmic and spiritual connections and are not influenced by looks or material things. You will feel as if your soul has bonded with the other person’s soul and vice versa.
How do you know if it is real?
You will know in your heart and mind that it is real. You will never be able to get rid of the feeling.
A lot of time, we come across people who make us feel the most unexplainable attraction towards them. It is a connection beyond time and space. It is so intense that you question yourself – is it even real?
Well, to be honest, there is no truer connection than a spiritual or a soul connection. If you feel this unexplained pull towards someone, it usually means that your souls have connected and you both were meant to be with each other.
You will know it is real because you will feel it. You may wish to disregard it and move on with life but your mind and soul will keep on reminding you. Once you find that connection, you will never be able to deny it!
Why do you feel a connection with someone you barely know?
Karmic connections or spiritual connections usually feel like this. You feel a strong connection with a complete stranger.
A karmic connection happens when you feel excited and passionate about someone, and this connection offers opportunities for important life lessons.
There are chances that life wants to teach you something with this person. It is one of the reasons why you may feel so connected to someone you barely know.
The other reason might be that your souls belonged with each other in the past lifetimes. They are your soulmate, and the universe has found a way to reunite your souls again.
In such cases, you will feel that you have known this person forever. You feel a deep emotional connection with them even if you have never met them before.
Does the opposite person feel the same connection?
There is a possibility that the other person will also feel the same intense connection as you. But it also might happen that they would not even realize anything at all.
Nothing can get worse than a lopsided attraction. Say you meet this person and you feel connected to them instantly. But they might not feel the same with you. This might happen that their soul is still not as awakened as yours, or maybe they fail to read the signs.
Soul connections are mostly mutual. Both people would feel the same way when they meet. If it at all happens that the other person does not feel connected with you, there is nothing to be disheartened about.
You both will again cross each other’s paths. When two souls have a connection, they are destined to be together. The other person just probably just needs a little more time!
How to make the most of this unexplainable connection?
You meet your soul or spiritual connections only when the time is right. The best way to make most of such connections is to be patient with it and look out for the signs to identify it.
The idea of such deep spiritual connections may seem to be full of thrill and excitement but it would be foolish to set out in search of them. If you are to meet your soul connection, it will appear in your life when the time is right.
If you try to examine each and every person to identify your “soul connection”, you might miss to identify when it actually appears in your life. Instead, just be calm and wait for it to happen in the natural course of things.
Also, once you identify your soul connection, cherish it and see if the feeling is mutual for both of you. If yes, then just hold on to each other because you were destined to be together.
If the connection does not turn out to be mutual, let life go on as it was. Do not force it upon the other person. Instead, wait for the universe to do its magic.
Ways to Deal with this unexplainable connection
It is easy to feel thrilled and confused at the same time when you sense an unexplainable connection with someone.
But instead of being worried about it, it would be easier if you try to understand each feeling that you experience towards this person.
Below is a list of 5 ways how you can deal with such unexplainable connections.
1. Find the right words to describe your feeling
The best way to deal with something you are unable to explain would be to sit down by yourself and try to break down this giddy feeling. You can do this by asking yourself questions like:
- Are you just physically attracted to this person?
- Can this bloom into a relationship in the future?
- Do you think this feeling is temporary?
- How strongly connected to each other do you feel?
- Is this a mutual feeling?
- How does this person’s existence affect your life in general?
Once you find answers to such questions, you would be able to set your expectations right and take the correct step from here onwards.
2. Try to understand if this connection is lop-sided
If you jump into the next step without confirming if the other person feels the same way about you or not, you might end up heart-broken.
So, before confronting the person regarding what you feel for them, try to get a better picture of what they feel about you.
If they feel the same way, their body language will give it away. If the connection is not mutual, do not try to force it onto them. It will not last very long.
3. Confide your feelings to someone you trust
Speak to someone you know you can trust and seek advice for your situation. Often when we speak to others about our feelings, they can actually comprehend better than us. This happens because their logic and judgment are not clouded by our feelings.
So, talking to a friend or a family member often helps us to see things clearly, and they can even guide us in the right direction with their own experiences from life.
4. Do not rush to conclusions
If you are unable to put your finger on what you feel at the moment, it is always a good idea to take a step back and give yourself some time to process this whole experience.
The thought of meeting your soulmate may excite you, but beware this may or may not turn out to be your true love!
If you feel the same way after a considerable amount of time, and you are sure that this is definitely something you want, then go ahead!
5. Go with what suits you best
If you feel that the connection you are experiencing is lop-sided; and the other person does not feel the same intense connection as you feel for them; it would be wise to step away and not take this forward. Lop-sided connections never work out, and they will end in heartbreak.
But, if you at all feel that the connection is strong and mutual, you should definitely go ahead and take this to the next level.
A word from ThePleasantRelationship
This strong unexplainable connection you feel for somebody you have never met before may leave you excited and elated.
At the end of the day, if you feel it, it is real for you. But what ultimately lies behind this connection you are feel with this other person probably depends on your unique circumstances.
Only you can understand and sense which potential explanation seems like it could be the most obvious reason for you.
When you have this instant connection, it’s likely that there is more than what just meets the eye. Something at a deeper level is at play, and it’s worth a shot. Who knows, you might end up with your twin flame or even your soulmate?
