“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.” — Edgar Cayce
Sometimes a psychic love reading is just what you need to clarify your feelings. A reading may also be enlightening to help you understand that it may be time to let go of a particular "love" relationship.
The dictionary defines "love" as "an intense feeling of deep affection or "a deep romantic or sexual attachment to someone."

In spiritual terms, love is said to be the most important experience that a human being can have. We sacrifice for love. It inspires us. Love may be the strongest force in the universe. It is the energy that connects us all at a soul level and elevates all of humanity.
Popular culture views this deep feeling of fondness and tenderness as a wonderful thing. Music and film especially idealize the romantic type of love.
Despite the romance and beauty in the energy of love, it could turn deadly. Even if you find someone that you have lived other lives with, it can be toxic this time around.
"After removing the fairy-tale element, a soul mate defined is simply a soul you knew in a previous incarnation." — Scott Petullo and Stephen Petullo
What is a Soulmate?
Have you ever looked across a crowded room and met the eyes of a stranger? Did you feel a heightened awareness or recognition? Maybe you were drawn together by an almost magical, magnetic energy.

Do you think that you have met your soulmate? Does it feel like you may have finally connected up with that vital "other half"? Could be! Maybe that feeling of "deja vu" is the real deal. This person may be your soulmate.
Even if you are in the midst of this magical, mystical energy though, it may not be your destiny to stay with your soulmate forever.
There is an instant "knowing" of the person that may be your soulmate. It's like an itch that you can't scratch. You may feel strongly that you know them, but can't remember from where. It isn't easy not to get caught up in the energy. Some people look all their life for their "soulmate".
You may be tempted to decide that this person is the answer to all your dreams.
Even if you are feeling yourself drawn towards this person, slow down and think about it. What is a soulmate, anyway?
Your soul is not divided into two halves. You are the total package. No other soul will "complete" you.
Although the feelings you are having may be profound, you can live without that other person. When we meet someone from another life, there is always a reason. But this person may not have been your lover in a previous existence.

In terms of reincarnation, you may have lived many lifetimes before this physical incarnation. They could have been your parent, friend, brother, sister, or even your greatest enemy! Your soul geometry may be linked to hundreds or even thousands of other souls. There is often a karmic link to the people we are in relationships with today. So in that respect, you may have many so-called soulmates in the course of a lifetime.
So you have met someone that feels like a soulmate. Now it's time to work on the relationship to end the karma. Sometimes we are destined to be with these lovers forever. More often, the soulmate energy is too overwhelming. We will have lessons involved with these attachments. It may be about being good to the person, letting go, or even learning to love unconditionally. There are as many karmic lessons as there are relationships.
Linked by Energy
People do not always get to choose who they love. When you love someone, you are linked to them by energy. Sometimes this connection goes both ways. That's when love is at it's best.
When your soulmate does not return or changes the love energy, it can become something else. Stalkers and angry exes may be both consciously or unconsciously building the energy in a relationship that has ended. When this happens, no one is focusing on working out the karma and learning and growing from the relationship.

This type of focused energy can be distracting to both parties. It is not healthy for either soul. The unrequited lover experiences low self-esteem and depression. When you focus all your energy on someone else, it's almost like you shrink your physical experience.
"Of course, what would your love life be without a little fantasy and magic? It’s the spice of love and can lead to much happiness, if you keep it in check and remember to be realistic." — Scott Petullo and Stephen Petullo
Cutting the Psychic Cords
A strong emotional attachment that was first established in love energy is difficult to unravel. These psychic cords can exist in almost any relationship. But if you believe you are losing your soulmate, it can get desperate. Thoughts are energy! If you are fixating yourself on someone, you may be accidentally creating the strong and emotional ties to the lover. Even if you realize that the other person is not good for you, you may continue to focus on them. This focusing feeds the psychic cords and ultimately is unhealthy for the sender.

Likewise, the person who has moved on may feel like a particular person is draining their energy. You may feel that an ex-lover may present a physical danger, as well as an energy attack. If someone identifies you as their soulmate and you don't feel the same way, it may be time to cut the cord or sever that unreturned "love" energy link.
Cutting the emotional cord involves visualization. Always wish the soul well. Imagine letting them go so that they can find their true purpose and happiness. Let them move towards the light for healing. Often imagining an energy cord being cut by scissors or broken by giant hands works for closure.
It doesn't matter if you are the source of the continued energy link or if it's coming from someone else. You are letting go.
After you have cut the cord, surround yourself with white light for protection and inspiration. Now get ready to face the future.
Keep the faith. Remember that you have found them for a reason. There will always be soul connections that are healthier, happier and more compatible than others.

So if you have to cut the energy link that binds you to one relationship, that may just be a way to open the door to another soulmate that will bring you greater joy. When the time is right, they will walk through that door.
