We all belong to a soul group. It’s your innermost circle of most trusted people that are in your life to teach you important lessons. Sure, we all have a lot of people in our lives but not all of them are part of our soul group and that’s because not all of them have a profound impact on our lives.

Here are the signs that somebody is a member of your soul group:

1. If you have chemistry

If you have instant chemistry with somebody, chances are they are going to serve a purpose in your life. If they immediately feel familiar the second you meet and you get along so comfortably, they may be a part of your soul group.

2. If they encourage you

People in your soul group constantly encourage you and believe in your potential. Whether it’s personal goals, career goals or relationships, people who belong in your soul group will always push you to achieve these goals and once you do, they’re genuinely happy and help you celebrate them.

3. If they call you out

As well as encouraging you, people in your soul group won’t let you get away with bad behaviour. They cut through the bull**** and tell you the truth, in support of your well-being. They know you well enough to know when you’re not acting in your best interest and may be blind to it, so they’re not afraid to let you know.

4. If they can cheer you up in bad situations

Somebody who is part of your soul group can bring out a true belly laugh even when your cheeks are stained with tears. They know the right time to be supportive and listen to you when you’re upset, but they also know the right time to cheer you up and make you laugh until it hurts.

5. If they are there through thick and thin

People in your soul group will be there for you, even when things get ugly. They’re not just around you on your happy days, they’re there when you’re feeling low and they aren’t going anywhere.

6. If there is an equal exchange of energy

There are often situations where people in our lives will just talk about themselves and their needs – somebody in your soul group will ensure there is an equal exchange of energy and that you’re getting as much out of the relationship as they are.

Do any of these signs sound like somebody in your life? Then congratulations, you’ve found your soul group! Let us know in the comments if you’ve experienced any (or all) of these signs with somebody in your life.

    I found my soul sister when we were 12. We both wrote into a magazine looking for pen pals, and we were the only ones our age who did that. We wrote letters and had phone calls for 23 years before we met in person. The second we saw each other in person, it was like the pieces clicked into place. Now we visit each other once a year. The Universe is always sending us messages about each other – signs about private jokes we share, or little things to make one of us think of the other. We are family, and we have no doubt we’ve been family in several past lives.
