If you haven’t had a Karmic Soulmate cross your path, then consider yourself lucky!!! These souls can pretty much bring you to your knees with grief when it’s all over.
These are souls that you have a past Karmic debt from a previous lifetime. They are coming back into your life to resolve a specific lesson you still need to learn.
I’ve talked about life themes before, how certain souls come into your life to either support you or challenge you. These ones are always here to challenge you.
Karmic connections can be either Platonic or Romantic. Both are just as hard and destructive.
Platonic Karmic connections often show up in a family dynamic. I’m sure you know someone, or you are that someone stuck in this connection. You see it most often in family circles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get burnt by a friend either. It can be your own parent or a sibling that is the cause of this nightmare. I know more than one person that has spent a good deal of time trying to get away from their controlling mother or narcissistic sister. They make your life miserable, and it’s a fight the entire time. If they aren’t making you feel hard to love, they are chipping away at your self-esteem. They are energy Vampires of the worst kind. It’s always about them.
Romantic Karmic connections are just awful! I might have got off easy with the family, but I sure didn’t skate by on the Romantic one. That one took me about 10 years to get over and fully and resolve it. BRUTAL!!!
When the energy comes together, it’s so electric, you are just drawn to them, like a moth to a flame. Trust me, you are going to get burnt eventually. Karmic soulmates and Twin Flames connections are often mistaken for each other. Unfortunately, I see this a lot.
When the energy comes together, it feels like magic. You want their attention, love, everything!! You can’t get enough. So what happens when you throw something up in the air? What goes up must come down, and oh baby, does it come crashing down. It’s like the floor just gets ripped out from underneath you. They have the ability to break your trust in yourself in a way no other relationship can. They make you question everything about yourself.
I’m not going to lie to you. It’s a bit of a journey your soul needs to take to get over these relationships. Number one is Boundaries. You are going to need to set up some hard boundaries about their contact with you. If you continue to give them access to you, they will continue to make your life a nightmare. It might not be easy to just tell your mother she isn’t part of your life anymore. Setting boundaries around your relationship will help control the issues and how much she tries to control you.
If you are closing the door on a romantic relationship, CLOSE THE DOOR! I mean all the way. They have such a draw to them. It’s like a drug you can’t get enough of, even though you know it’s toxic. The relationships often become cycles of coming together and coming apart. They keep pulling you back in. The energy never settles, and they end up bringing out the worst qualities in you. This is where you need to dig deep and make sure you know your worth. No matter what the lip services they provide about how it will change, don’t go back. Don’t allow yourself to get caught in the cycle.
The most crucial part of healing from Karmic connections is to release the Karmic energy. You can do this by holding love in your heart and releasing the anger attached to it. If you think of them, it’s not with unconditional love, then there is still healing to do and Karmic energy to be released.
If you can answer yes to more than 5 of these questions, you are more than likely caught in a Karmic relationship.
