Everything is connected, so there is no such thing as a chance meeting. The people in your life are not there by chance but because of cosmic connections.
The universe is as complex and interconnected as a spider’s web. Everything that happens affects everything else. While this can be a scary prospect, but it can also be inspiring. It means that everything in our lives is a result of cosmic connections.
Your existence here on the material plane may not be your only experience of life. Many traditions believe that we have many lives and that, between those lives, we are in a spiritual realm. You existed before you were born and will continue to do so after you die.
While we are in that spiritual realm we get to make choices about our next life. Our souls choose what experiences we wish to have and what purpose we desire to achieve. We choose those things that help us to grow spiritually. And we choose the cosmic connections that will enable us to do so.
Cosmic connections are those people who come into our lives to help us develop and grow. These people are vital to our spiritual progression. They make come into our lives for a moment or a lifetime. Either way, they can change the course of our lives forever.
Our cosmic connections may not be beings full of love and light. Often we learn as much from the difficult people in our lives as we do from the ones who are a pleasure to be around. Those we are cosmically connected to come into our lives to help us look at things in a new way, heal our pain and change direction.
So, how do you recognize a person in your life who is a cosmic connection?
They shake things up
Cosmic relationships often disrupt our lives. These people force us to look at the way we are living and decide whether this is the way we wish to carry on. They may awaken us to injustice, remind us of our true values, encourage us to follow our dreams or simply remind us to appreciate the wonder of being alive on this planet.
They heal us
Our cosmic partners often provide deep healing to our souls. They believe in us and help us to overcome the pain of our past. These people remind us that all that we have been through is part of our spiritual journey. They can help us to move forward instead of remaining stuck in pain.
They inspire us
When a person comes into our lives who is living a life that we can only dream of, they inspire us to change. They can remind us that our dreams are possible and help us get out of our rut. Often we can gain an immense sense of personal power from spending time with these people who believe that anything is possible.
They remind us of our life purpose
Sometimes, when we meet someone, there is an instant connection. It feels like we have known them for a lifetime. And something about them reminds us of who we really are. It’s as if a switch is flipped and we suddenly remember our connection with the divine and our soul purpose.
Through the expectations of our parents, peers, and society as a whole, we can go off course in our lives. We learn to make decisions based on what others think, rather than what our souls are calling us to do. Our divine connections can help us to remember our true calling and spiritual purpose in this incarnation.
They cause us pain
Cosmic relationships don’t necessarily make life easier for us. When they come into our lives they challenge the status quo and force us to look deeply into ourselves. This is often painful. We would sometimes rather stay in our comfort zones and live mediocre lives. We don’t always have the courage to face the truth and become who we are meant to be.
Our cosmic friends can force us out of our comfort zones. They may do this gently, or they may be harsh about it. Sometimes kind words are not enough. Sometimes we need a bit of a kick to help us change our path. Difficult relationships in our lives can sometimes provide this impetus for change better than more gentle ones.
This is not to say we should seek difficult or damaging relationships. It is simply to remind us that we can learn from the pain we have experienced.
They teach us to be open
When we recognize that people come into our lives for a reason it helps us to open our hearts. Instead of being fearful, we become peaceful because of our understanding of the higher purpose behind all our life experiences. By freeing us from fear and hate our cosmic partners can transform us, awakening us to the divine connections in the universe and our place in the cosmic sphere.
Recognizing our cosmic connections can change our lives. When we look at each individual who crosses our path as a divine messenger our attitude towards them changes. Every person we meet has the potential to help us grow, from the man on the bus who smiles at us to our grandmother who offers unconditional love to the difficult partner or colleague. Understanding the cosmic significance of these people in our lives helps us to deal with them better and make the most of what they have to offer us on our journey.
