Have you ever felt pinged by someone else, knowing they were thinking about you or that they’d be on the other end of the phone because you were just thinking of them?
Have you ever had it to the degree that it became a distraction or a problem in your day-to-day life?
Does any of this sound familiar?
- I can tell when they’re thinking of me.
- I feel my attention drawn to them several times throughout the day even though I am not thinking of them.
- Out of the blue I hear or feel them thinking of me, as if they’re in the same room but they live far away.
- Every time my phone rings I know it’s them but it only happens to me with that one person.
- The thought of this person calling to me is so distracting but I don’t know how to get rid of it. I don’t know if I want to get rid of it or if I am supposed to.
- This is an old relationship that ended many years or decades ago and yet this person feels like I am connected to them somehow.
- We’re both married to other people but I’ve never had a relationship that felt this deep level of connection and I would know it was the right thing to do to leave my spouse if I could just be with this person.
- I feel so connected to them that I can’t imagine moving on and dating or marrying anyone else. No one else feels this interesting at a very deep level.
- The longing I have for this person is sexual but it transcends that in a way I can’t even describe. I don’t think anyone else I know or maybe anyone else on the planet has what we have, but we can’t be together due to time, circumstances, etc.
- I feel like we must have a past life connection because it’s nothing like I’ve ever experienced with anyone else. The first moment I saw them it felt like I was coming home.
How about if this person wasn’t even alive? What if you’ve never even met them? What if they were on the other side calling out to you? That might make living life here in the Earth plane a little tough, like you have one foot in this world and one foot in the next dimension.
I had to start investigating why suddenly I was running into people everywhere who were having these types of problems. The only thing I’d experienced was the occasional calling of a friend. Usually, literally – they were on the other end of the phone, or they’d tell me later that they were talking about me But – I’m an intuitive, and sometimes I hear these things. You’d kind of expect that out of me!
Only once in my life would I call it a genuine distraction, and to this day I doubt very much that my friend was thinking of me at all – I sort of ascribed it to some kind of old connection (because I hadn’t seen him in a couple of decades) that I was supposed to learn about so I could clear it and move on in a current situation. I never really understood it any better than it being an “old tie.”
When I do readings for people I know personally, I often will see an ethereal cord. If my friend is in Canada and I am in Florida I will see a map and the cord runs from one place to the other. The cord itself might look thin and wispy or more heavy-duty. I still haven’t figured out exactly what that means, but it only happens once in a while, usually with people who I knew from school, not family members or people who grew up on my street. I assume it means there is some meaningful reason why I “bumped into them” this lifetime, and then I ask for the cord to be cut just like I do after every reading I do for anyone.
What I’m saying is that I have never had an experience anything like what’s usually described as a “twin flame” or “twin soul.” Not that I wanted to make them wrong but I was sceptical of anyone who seemed to think they did. So why then would I start meeting people who sound like they just might?
Twin Flames? Twin Souls? Soulmates? Telepathy?
Usually I’m only brought people who either mirror my experience in some way, or who have problems that I easily understand.
I never consciously think of telepathy as being a real thing. Merriam-Webster defines telepathy as “communication from one mind to another by extrasensory means.”
It probably is a “real thing”, scientifically speaking, but I don’t feel like what I do has anything to do with telepathy since I interface with a spiritual team and sometimes the person’s higher self, but not really with “earth them” other than in the normal way such as through email or phone.
However I have to admit that might be what’s going on when the phone rings and I know who’s calling me, or when I hear messages from my hate-to-talk-on-the-phone introvert friends that sounds something like,“I know you’ve called me three times in the last couple of months but I’m going through this thing and I am not in the mood to talk. I’ll call you when I feel like it. Nothing personal.”
Scientists will tell you that telepathy can be the only thing going on, but I just don’t believe that since my experience is different. I just think they haven’t caught up yet. Or at least expand their definition of “one mind” to something more like “tap into the universal field of consciousness.” But I digress.
It certainly seems valid that we incarnate with people from our soul groups, intentionally, and make contracts with them to meet this lifetime to fulfill those contracts. However for the most part there doesn’t seem to be anything written in stone that says,”You will meet and mate with this one person and ONLY this one person.” There seem like there are many, many possibilities, and our free will would dictate the exclusion of “just one possibility”, wouldn’t you think so?
So what about the “twin flame” or “twin soul” concept? There are a few different definitions of this floating around, often that each person is part of one soul (which I really have to say I strongly doubt, because if you were missing pieces of your soul you would in some serious trouble, not to mention half of the whole darn thing, which strikes me as romanticized ridiculousness. Plus none of these people feels “less than.”). Here’s one from soulevolution.org:
“We each have only one twin, and generally after being split the two went their separate ways, incarnating over and over to gather human experience before coming back together. Ideally, this happens in both of their last lifetimes on the planet so they can ascend together. So you probably haven’t had many lifetimes with your twin.
Each twin is a complete soul, not half a soul. It is their task to become more whole, balancing their female and male sides, and ideally become enlightened, before reuniting with their twin. This reunion is of two complete and whole beings. All other relationships through all our lives could be said to be “practice” for the twin, the ultimate relationship.”
I don’t know, guys. This goes against everything I’ve ever thought, but I can’t prove it’s not true, so I pretty much ignored the whole thing as “probably so much hooey” until I started meeting people who are faced with the conflict of being pulled incredibly strongly, energetically speaking, by someone. Usually this is someone from their past. Sometimes they flat out leave their spouses and even children behind because the compulsion to be with this other person is that strong.
I must just be practicing, because if I do have “another half” out there somewhere, you couldn’t tell by me. Any boyfriends or husbands would be people I’d put in the “soul group” category – I’ve been around the block with them in other lifetimes, probably.
Nonetheless, I cannot ignore the fact that over the past six months or so, people who are conflicted over this keep on coming to me or I keep meeting them. Most of them aren’t clients, they’re just people I run into. This literally impacts their day and their life. They can feel the other person thinking of them or pulling on them, and it’s a major distraction to say the least. I usually suggest to cut the cords of attachment and see how they feel then, but usually they don’t want to. The call or the longing is such that it feels “wrong” to them.
Sometimes they go ahead and start a new phase of their life with the person. One woman I spoke with actually said,“We work together, we live together, we’re together 24/7 and when he leaves the house or sometimes even goes into the other room, it feels like that’s wrong and we are being torn apart.”
That is unfathomable to me. As an introverted empath, I can take only so much company and after that, I need time to recover! Being with someone like that feels like jail to me. And when I (nicely) try to explain that I just cannot relate, every one of them almost has given me that,”Oh, that’s so sad for you!” reaction. Can you imagine?!
So tell me…what do you think? Are such things just energetic connections that should be severed, so the person can move on with their life, or are they incredibly powerful connections meant to be experienced and lived out? What do you think might really be going on?
I would appreciate it very much if you would share this post on social media – I’d love to hear everyone’s reactions.
