Just What Are Karmic Relationships?
Some of the most common questions I get in a psychic reading are, “When will I meet the man or woman of my dreams?” Or, “Is my boyfriend/girlfriend my soulmate?” I can honestly say that these kinds of questions comprise about 75% of the questions asked of me. If you are an intuitive counselor yourself, you may need to understand a little more about the spiritual side of relationships to help people understand and perhaps shed light upon their current relationships, what type of relationship they might be in, or how to move past poor relationships and to begin attracting the healthy relationship they want. If you are interested in the dynamics of the spirituality of relationships as a layperson, you may find this article somewhat disturbing. However, it may serve to explain what is going on in your love life and why.
There are several types of relationships: romantic, friendships, family connections, or even co-workers. This article deals primarily with romantic relationships.
You Can Have Many Karmic Relationships
Unlike *”Soulmates” and “Twin Flames”, a karmic relationship involves people being drawn together for a mutual need and the attraction is often quite strong. In fact, the attraction is almost irresistible. This type of relationship typically includes a need for completion on a subconscious level from a past life together where the relationship lacked in compatibility or ended too quickly without issues being worked out. This is not saying that a karmic relationship will end. It just means there is a lot of work that needs to be done on both ends for it to last. Karmic relationships are mainly about growth and change and working out past karma. You can always tell if any relationship is karmic one because there is some conflict and resentments involved. This can be overcome when each party begins to make necessary changes for the good of the relationship and both individuals really work at it.
Characteristics of a Karmic Relationship:
The following characteristics might seem at odds with one another, however, there are many facets to Karmic Relationships
- Strong attraction with limited compatibility
- A feeling of deja vu and “we’ve been here before”
- An addictive need to be with the other person
- A repeat of family patterns learned from childhood
- Focusing more on your relationship than your own personal growth
- Sacrificing your personal dreams to be together – issues of co-dependency
- Possible neglect, abuse, or God forbid, violence
- A deep desire to work things out by one or both partners
Many times relationships do not fulfill the hoped for promise of the great happiness felt in the beginning. Or perhaps other factors come into play like betrayal, abuse, and personality conflicts not apparent in the beginning, boredom, or even neglect. Or if one or both people decide to move on…the love or attraction felt in the beginning is just gone. If you have experienced any of the above, you know the heartbreak it brings. Most of the time, these heartbreaks heal over time.
Finally, this article is not meant to imply that a Karmic Relationship cannot work out. It definitely can. However, It takes honesty and the willingness on both partners to work on problems and issues. Also, think twice before dumping a relationship because you are seeking what you believe to be a Soulmate or Twin Flame relationship. Although these types of relationships are definitely easier, there is no guarantee you will find this type of relationship in the immediate future. So be prepared for some alone time. If your heart tells you the relationship you are in is just not going to work, then this is your clue to look elsewhere.
