‘Seek first to understand, then to be understood.’ – Stephen R. Covey

Feeling as if you are completely understood by another person is an excellent sign that you’ve met someone from your soul family because it is such a rare feeling. We experience communication problems frequently, and a good listener is hard to find. A soul family member is an excellent listener and they ask questions to fully understand your emotions, thoughts, and beliefs about a topic.

You might have just stepped out of the shower and look like a drowned rat. But when someone from your soul family shows up unannounced, you welcome them in and give them a wet hug anyway.

3. You have tremendous patience for your soul family

Other people might aggravate you, but not your soul family member. You can look at their annoying behavior and see that they do not act out of negative intentions, but out of their own frustrations. Once you can see this, you feel empathy for them and even a sense of urgency to help them eliminate the frustrating parts of their life.

4. You wish you could marry them

Whether or not you find them attractive, whether or not they are even the right gender for your romantic preferences, you wish that they were so you could be connected to them forever.

A joint research study by the College of William and Mary and New Mexico State University looked at opposite sex friendships and the misperceptions about them. They found that when participants were asked to estimate their opposite sex friend’s level of sexual and romantic interest in them that women underestimated the level of interest in them by their male friends and that the opposite was true for men.

5. You can unburden yourself with your soul family

A soul family member is not in your life for personal gain or to dump all of their troubles on you. In fact, you will feel quite the opposite, you feel able to unburden yourself due to their careful prompting and the gentle questions that they ask that allow you to feel comfortable opening up.

You have each shared so much of your lives with each other that a soul family member could tell a stranger the details of your childhood like they knew you then, even if they didn’t.

A soul family member is not only cheering you on, but they help you to reach your highest potential. They challenge your old beliefs, question you on what is holding you back, and push you to achieve your goals and find fulfillment.
