What is a kindred spirit?

A kindred spirit is much more than a good friend. Kindred spirits are those people who, as soon as we meet them, we feel that we have known them all our lives.

This are the are people who bring positive energy in our lives, people with whom we want to share as much time as possible, to laugh and feel good.

They give us compassion and unconditional love. They help us with our purpose in life.

Kindred spirits are people connected in such a way that they can feel the love, happiness and pain of the other.

They vibrate at the same energy level.

Kindred spirits:

  • Have similar values

You have many things in common, such as sharing the same political views, religious beliefs, and ethics.

But there are some differences that do not pose any problems. There are no conflicts about what matters to you.

  • Respect each other

The fact that you do not always agree is not enough to destroy your mutual respect. Trust each other and get along.

The support provided by your relationship often makes you feel encouraged and safe.

  • Are honest with each other

It’s hard for you to lie to each other. Even in difficult circumstances, you manage to be honest with each other, because your relationship is not superficial.

The sincerity between you is genuine and does not come from guilt. Even when the truth may seem ugly, you are there for each other.

  • Learn from each other.

Your relationship is very productive as you continue to learn from each other.

The related spirit has the ability to open your eyes to new perspectives and greater objectivity. It acts like a mirror even when the problems are difficult.

  • Their energy fits naturally

The strongest sign that you are around a related spirit is the feeling that you have known each other for a lifetime, even though you have just met.

As you vibrate on the same frequency, you find even more similarities between you. Vibrate on the same spiritual level, which has an impact on your life.

  •  Help each other move forward on their paths

Most of the time, you and your related spirit go through the same difficulties in life. And that’s because you attract people who have the same needs as yours.

Thus, they can empathize with what you are experiencing.

  • They challenge us to become a better version of ourselves

Sometimes not everything will go easy with our kindred spirit.

Sometimes these souls come to teach us to have patience, to cultivate virtue, to deal with something that is not easy for us and we have to learn in this life.

It is important to understand this and not stray from the test. Once we overcome it, we will be able to better face the next challenges.

 Your inner spirit knows that you need your kindred spirit to learn and progress. When you meet them, you start to feel good about your energy.

You feel that you have more compassion, understanding, integrity, and treat everyone with respect and kindness.

  • Memories from home

When we are with our kindred spirit, we have a strong sense of being at home, in our home, the one we will all return to and where we all come from.

The strong and harmonious connection comes from the fact that we resonate in the same vibration with our spiritual group.
