The empathy between soul mates runs incredibly deep. When a soulmate experiences something, good or bad, whatever they are feeling is experienced by their soul mate. The soul mate connection often creates a dynamic where soul mates can experience not only the thoughts of their soul mate, but also their emotions.
If one soul mate is feeling nervous or anxious and has good reason for it, the other can suddenly find themselves nervous or anxious at the same time. Yet they have no good reason for it. They may know they have no reason for this anxiety and my feel a bit ‘out of sorts’ wondering where it is coming from. That old saying that refers to “walking a mile in someone’s shoes”, causes soul mates to walk a mile in each other’s shoes on an emotional level.
With those levels of emotions flying around, you can expect both the good and the bad that comes with it. Anyone that has met their soul mate knows they could “feel” their soul mates feelings. Even if their soul mate has denied having feelings, or is denying having feelings now, their soul mate “feels” those feelings and knows they exist. It is hard to listen to a soul mate reject the connection, but the empathy between soul mates overrides what they hear from them. It makes the person question which is reality and which is fantasy.
As they say, always go with your gut. Anyone can say they have feelings for you and be lying, just as they can say they don’t have feelings for you and be lying as well. This is one of the ways the empathy between soul mates is so valuable. Since soul mates can have a rough period, and lessons still must be learned, they empathy between them can give them the strength they need to get through those times.
When soul mates are having a positive, loving period, especially at the beginning, they feel the depth of their own feelings as well as those of their counterparts. So often soul mates speak of how they never believed they could feel so happy, so much in love, and at the same time, so loved by another person. A big part of this is thanks to the empathy between them. Soul mate empathy allows the couple to really feel exactly how their soul mate feels about them.
It is an amazing gift to know on a soul level how much someone loves you. We all want to be understood, and knowing that someone else understands how we feel, even when we cannot articulate it, can be such a blessing. Your soul mate can sense you had a bad day even before seeing you, and perhaps bring home dinner or flowers to cheer you up. You soul mate may pick up the phone to call you at precisely the moment you need them to thanks to your connection.
Once soul mates let go of their own ego and insecurities they can use this gift they have been given to take their relationship to the next level. Soul mates have the unique ability to tune in to each other and avoid pointless arguments, misunderstandings, and show true compassion, comfort and support when needed.
