in any type of contact, there will be an energy exchange.
it can be especially true for intimate physical relationships.
that you each might retain an aspect of the others energy
signature isn't too hard to fathom.
that you've cared enough to each maintain a "living sample"
of that energy is rather telling, and it shows that you still
have feelings for one another... but it's not necessarily
indicating a "soulmate" relation as i understand things.
if you've undergone some 'life changing' experiences and
evolved in some way through your relationship, then it'd
be more convincing as a soulmate connection.
distance (and time too) aren't really factors of import
[though being aware of each others condition/situation is].
so, knowing that you've got this connection, how do you
figure you'll use that info?
through it, you might consciously develop your psychic
abilities it would seem. you for sure can grow more
empathic towards others if you don't focus exclusively
