Soulmate connections are a deeply spiritual bond, and when this connection manifests on a physical level it can radiate spiritual and almost magical energy.
Synchronicity can be most simply defined as the experience of meaningful coincidences, and it is usually a sign that you are in a flow state or moving through life along a path that is aligned with your spiritual journey, your experience of expansion as a human spiritual being.
You will likely experience an increase in synchronicity and a series of synchronicities leading up to your first meeting and during your time together with your soulmate.

Experiencing a soulmate connection with someone can be a truly exciting time.
When your souls find each other and are able to express, create, learn and play together in this lifetime, it can encourage your flow of energy to strengthen, especially when you are fulfilling your purpose together.
When you feel energized and excited about life and notice your soulmate is also in this higher vibrational state with you then it is extremely likely you have met one of your soulmate connections.
5. You have similar goals and intentions
Although you are unique individuals in many ways, you and your soulmate likely share similar goals and intentions, especially around the time in life that you meet each other.
You will quickly find what you have in common and boost each other’s progress or work together towards shared visions and goals.
As some soulmate connections accompany us physically throughout life and some soulmates are with us for just a season or two, we may notice our shared interests with a soulmate span the time that is spent together most intently.
Sometimes our shared vision is the divinely decided purpose of the connection, and once we have completed the mission together, we move on to another focus or experience.
It may also be that we dream and create together with our soulmate for a lifetime, together till the end of our experience as human beings.
6. You are deeply connected but not attached to each other
Another sign that you have met a soulmate would be that although your connection is deep, you are not usually codependent or physically attached to each other.
When you meet a soulmate, you come together as two content individuals that share deeply in life experiences together.
If you find that you do fall into an unhealthy attachment with someone you consider a soulmate, this could mean that dealing with this and rebalancing is part of your lesson to learn from the connection.

Even when you are physically apart or complete a season with a certain soulmate, you won’t be in a state of intense attachment.
You may have a period of heavy emotions while you integrate, but you will easily return to your sovereignty and individual power. Soulmate connection can transcend physicality and conventional relational ideals.
