Is your soul mate relationship exclusive? You would be surprised how many soul mate relationships are not exclusive! Why is this?
First of all, many soul mates meet when they are in relationships with other people. The universe gave them ample time to get out of these relationships but it was taking too long. So the soul mates meet for the first time when one (or both) are already in exclusive relationships with other people.
The meeting of the soul mates is an awakening. It is supposed to show them what they could have, instead of living with what they settled for before they met their soul mate. It allows them to experience deeper level to their emotions, and to show them what it is really like to be connected to another soul.
The problem is that many soul mates have to wait a long time for one (or both) to end their other exclusive relationships. Since the soul mate meeting was not one they were looking for or expected, they were completely caught off guard. They were not prepared for this to happen, and now they have two things going on simultaneously.
They are dealing with this connection to their soul mate, and then disconnecting from their other exclusive relationship. Often the newness and happiness brought about by their awakening makes them focus more on the soul mate relationship first. Then, slowly, they get around to the reality that if they are going to be together, their exclusive relationship has to end.
There are always excuses, such as money, children, illness, and even how friends and family will react. Even though the soul mates feel deeply for one another, they have a real obstacle to face going forward. Ending an exclusive relationship is hard, and in most cases a very negative experience. But it is up to the two soul mates to do the right thing.
Some people are willing to continue a relationship with their soul mate while they are still in their other relationship. Other people are only comfortable keeping it on a friendship level. There are others who can’t even speak, text or email their soul mate until they end their other relationship because it is too hard, and they are against cheating. However you handle it is up to the two of you. It is your journey, and of course there will be lessons to learn along the way. Just remember you two may have a special bond that cannot be broken, but until they end their other relationship, you cannot really begin yours.
