What is a soul group?

What is a soul family?

This is post 2 of 5 in the “Soul Series”. [Part 1]

We know we have a soul. But a soul family? What is that exactly?

A soul group (or family) is made up of any number of individual souls who regularly incarnate at the same time.  Given that we are all connected to everyone else on some level, it seems to only make sense that we’d have a “group” of other souls we like to travel with, right?

So we each have a group of souls we are spiritually connected to: souls we’re meant to connect with in both the spirit world and here by choice in physical form. This is our soul group. Kind of like a family on a soul-level.

People from our soul group come into our lives at seemingly random times, and sometimes in the most seemingly coincidental ways. Before we were born, we agreed to connect and teach each other a lesson – or many lessons – in this lifetime. This explains why some people who are only in our lives for a short period of time make such a profound impact.

The people in our soul group can take any form – friends, siblings, parents, coworkers. The Internet has brought soul groups together too. I have several Internet friends I’ve met by way of this blog – people hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles away – and I know we are kindred spirits.

That’s not to say that everyone in our lives is in our soul group. So how do we recognize it if someone is in our soul group?

  • You recognize their energy right away – it’s a feeling like you’ve come “home” when you’re around them
  • You feel like you met somewhere before but know you didn’t
  • You could find yourself finishing each others sentences or sharing ideas at the same time out of the blue
  • You find yourselves calling/texting/emailing each other at the same time
  • You feel an emotional pull to that person that surpasses any emotional connection you could have built with them in the time period you’ve known them
  • You both have an innate awareness that you are going through something important together that will leave you feeling more spiritually aware and/or a better person

Do you recognize anyone in your life now or from your past who belongs to your soul group?

I recently met someone who I just know is in my  soul group.  I’ve had some indications of this since we first met, but this was further driven home in a “Whoa what just happened?” kind of way when we discovered that we had shared the same dream the night before while talking the next morning. The details were the same and the dream was too random to be of any coincidence that could be explained away.  Pretty cool, right?

Think about those people who have created the biggest learning lessons and consider what knowing them in this lifetime has taught you. Do you think they were a part of your soul group?

Stay tuned for parts 3-5 of the Soul Series over the next couple of weeks.

Quite helpful.
I think I may have met someone who may be part of my Soul Family, who I’m not falling for. I just felt this pull towards him since day one, like there was a light within him calling me. And when I’d look into his eyes (Even in pictures) I’d just feel like I knew him, deeply. And I feel that, even though he doesn’t voice confirmation, that he understands me on a very deep level, could be me deluding myself though lol. Like…understands me in a different way. Though I’m not sure what he understands, I just feel like he understands me very differently compared to other people who I am very close to. And it’s only been a Month and a bit!!

But the point in saying this is…if he is part of my Soul Family, is this feeling that I’m having a one way thing or would he be feeling something similar? It’s unlike anything I’ve ever felt before…mainly because I’m more aware of the spiritual aspects of life and what not now.

I just experienced something, that seems strange to me.

I am just a teenage girl, 17 years. I am originally from Germany but I just spent a year in America as an “exchange student”. Around New Year’s I came into a new hostfamily, really nice people. But this is not about them. They took me to a small party, 3 families, knowing each other from all having bought a trailer at a camp a few hours away, that got together. I got introduced shortly to everybody, but only after a minute send away outside to the other teenagers and kids. There were two little kids I immediately started playing with – they were both really adorable and I liked them a lot. At the end of the night, the 5 year old boy could barely let me go when I left.
At memorial day we went up to that mentioned camp. There I met a woman, about 22 years older than me, but it didn’t seem to matter, not to her and definitely not to me. We were sticking together, everywhere we went. Nobody could part us. It was like an understanding between us, knowing what the other one wants and feels. Turns out, the kids I met at the party were her’s.
Over the weekends we went up to the camp twice again and whenever she was there, too, we would spent as much time together as we could. One weekend she wasn’t there and since I was gonna go back to Germany just a week later, we figured we wouldn’t see each other again. Her husband gave me her phone number and I texted her immediately. In the end she came to camp for one more day, just to see me. We told each other everything, trusted each other. I also told her how I stopped smoking before I came to America. It was going around my head quite a couple days because my hostsister just started smoking and kept offering me cigs, and I was tempted. From the day we left camp, we hadn’t stopped texting.
The next Saturday, 2 days before I would leave America, she invited us to a barbecue. The others couldn’t come, so just my hostsister and me went. In the car, I couldn’t hold on longer and smoked a cigarette. I was so mad at myself, so unbelievably mad.
When we arrived, she showed me around the house. In a moment when we were both standing still, she noticed me shaking my leg because of my craving for more. She immediately knew what happened. I don’t think she was really mad, but she yelled at me for what I had done, and after she did I felt so much better. It’s like she knew that I needed that, because I felt so bad, because I was so mad at myself. And again: Since I left that barbecue, we hadn’t stopped texting, and since I left America, we hadn’t stopped messaging. And that was quite a while ago.
