I feel a little embarrassed to be posting this, like a Disney Princess or a teenage girl and I’ve already bored poor, kind helz_belz to tears with the subject! But I really could do with your help! It’s a question to those of you who feel you’ve met someone from a past life, but not a vague connection or passing sexual attraction, something absolutely earth-shattering and life changing. I met someone in November and the number of coincidences in our lives is just huge. Aside from this we have absolutely everything in common, not just the usual things like books or films, but every obscure (and I mean obscure!) interest and hobby in between. Looking into his eyes is honestly like remembering, I've never had such feelings of love in my whole life. By March we’d confessed that we had feelings for each other, although it’s complicated at present we hope to meet in a few weeks and try to sort out our situation. Before long I was convinced he’d been important to me in other lives, such was this soul-deep longing that I felt. I got the impression that he may have been a sister I’d loved dearly in 1500s France, although I never mentioned this to him (and the odd thing is that he’s been helping me with problems that I believe stem entirely from that life – anxiety about how people view me). He started to say that as well as feeling an intense attraction for me, he also felt a strange sense of being siblings. On other occasions he’d commented that he felt we had a shared past that never existed, but that it made him feel safe and that when he thought of me he got a strange “homely” feeling. I almost feel like the fact that we’re both only children is like the universe’s way of telling us we’re missing a sibling. A few nights ago he asked me if I ever wondered if were married in a “different” life. I felt so dizzy when he said this that I had to lie down, everything was spinning! Since childhood I’ve also had memories and emotions of losing my sweetheart in WWI, something I thought I’d resolved a while ago, but then he told me about having flu as a small child, being unconscious and describing to his family about disembarking and having lost something from his kit-bag – so who knows…! A few weekends ago I was thinking of him, but with a different name. I just kept on thinking of him as "Richard." For about five seconds I couldn't actually remember his real name, it was blurred somehow. The strangest feeling. Our paths crossed about thirteen years ago, without us knowing at the time. We were literally stood within feet of each other at the very most. But the strangest thing is that I already knew he’d been there. I just knew. I’d read articles about soul mates having been at the same place at the same time, but not being ready to meet yet, and as soon as I read that, without any reason, I knew exactly where that meeting had taken place. Far from both our homes and in a situation that didn’t fit the interests we’d spoken about. I didn’t dare ask him, as I knew I’d be shocked if this “marker” that I remembered was right, but he ended up mentioning something from that very day and we realised we’d been close enough to touch. I feel as if energy is flowing through every part of me (I have chronic fatigue, so this is an odd sensation), colours seem brighter, I can’t sleep, but I’ve started to become the person I want to be and used to be, braver and more outgoing, not crippled by anxiety, I'm meeting friends I haven’t seen for years and I feel like this is all down to him teaching me. I honestly can’t think of anything but him and finally being reunited (even though this will mean sacrificing many things in my life at present), and I know he feels the same way. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Do you think it sounds like a soul mate/twin soul connection? I’d love to hear your own thoughts on it. I’m frightened of throwing my life away on a daydream… although I’ve never felt anything so real and all-consuming in my life.
