Please tell us how you met? (Internet, store, vacationing, dancing, etc....) This is a story of two parts...
PART I: We met through a mutual friend at my church. We had a lot of common interests and so I started hanging out whenever I passed his coffee cart in town. This was all very random, and not based on anything other but friendship attraction. Later he moved into a friend of mine's flat and so I go to see him outside of his work. We had many a conversation about God and Christianity, as we were both struggling with it. Then Asha moved down to Wellington.
THREE YEARS PASS
PART II: In May this year I got a facebook message from Asha. I was now living in Dublin and he was on his way over to live in Edinburgh. Our friend, the one he lived with, had been talking to us seperately about spiritual matters and realised that we were talking about the same things, and so suggested we meet up again, now that he was coming to my side of the world.
By "coincidence" I was going to Edinburgh for work exactly when he was arriving and so we arranged to meet up again. He ended up joining me on part of my road trip around Scotland, which is where how deeply our relationship went began to be revealed to us. I left Scotland with the resolve that I was going to move there as soon as I could. Then first via text, then email, then phone conversations, did we realise the enormity of what we have discovered and the "I love you's" flowed.
Please tell us about those special things that draw you to your soulmate or twin flame? The childlike awe and playfulness, the particular blend of spiritualism and new age he manifests, his poetic expressive self, the hippie... my imagination could not have invented a more perfect playmate. He's my mirror image!
How has finding your soulmate/twin flame changed your life? Experiencing true love! And experiencing it instantly in a way that most people will never understand.
Having someone to plan my adventure through life with - everything we have ever dreamed of or imagined we now realise can and will come true. We have the same dreams and goals, there has been nothing we have had to compromise with yet.
Do you share many synchronicitis together? If so, please think of what they are and tell us? There are of course many, but I will share two amazing ones.
2-3 months before we re-met we individually both went through MASSIVE spiritual growth. At that time we both committed to wanting to experience true love AND both took vows of chastity (which are being kept).
When we met for the first time in person two weeks after the road trip around Scotland we had both, unbeknown to the other, had brought gifts to share. I brought two wooden angels, one to give and to keep and he brought two wooden rings, one to give and one to keep.
If you believe you have found your soulmate or twin flame but he/she doesn't know it or can't be with you due to certain circumstances, please tell us about your situation here.
We are not together in physical form at the moment because I need to finish a project in Dublin first. However, as everyday goes by I want to throw the towel in!
Below, list all strange phenomena, if any, related to time, increased psychic abilities, or feelings pertaining to how your partner is feeling when you are separated from one another. There are times when I know he can feel him thinking of me, and sometimes I have felt his arms around me. But to be honest I try not to tune into that because I'm finding that hard at the moment!
Do you and your partner have the feeling that this isn't the only lifetime you have spent together? If so, please tell us about it, below. I think we may have been in each others lives, but not in a big way - probably more in an unrequited way more than anything.
How would you describe your life up until the time you found your soulmate or twin flame? What is the last "big thing" to have happened to you prior to your reunion? As I wrote in the synchronism section. I was getting over a break up and he was getting over unrequited love and we both committed ourselves on true love, vow of chastity etc.
Have you noticed any recurring themes in your relationships, ie..past karmic experiences that keep popping up or the numbers 11 11 and the Fibonaccie Sequence as it relates to date/time? All the time. Particularly 1111 2222 and 333.
Have either you, your partner or both of you together, had the feeling from a very young age that you were put here to fulfill a purpose for which you never received any specific instructions? (feelings of a spiritual calling, a higher call, or a greater purpose.) Yes, definitely for both of us, and what we will be doing together has been slowly revealed to us this year (before and after we met). What has been scary is relating those visions back to each other and seeing how they fit together. Exciting times are ahead of us!
I realised this year that I would be fulfilling those calls with someone else, who would be my twin.
What advice would you give to anyone out there who is either searching for their own twin flame or soulmate or is in the middle of one of these relationships? Don't search! As soon as you're searching you're looking for someone to fulfill in yourself that can only be fulfilled by you. Instead work on yourself, focus on your own spiritual growth and be the change you want to see.
Do you believe that upon finding your twin flame/soulmate that one of you has awakened the other, so to speak? Finding each other has definitely spurred both our spiritual journeys. New stuff that would usually take weeks/months to be revealed is now happening in days.
If you were the webmaster of this site, what is one question you would ask, that you did not see here? It would be good to have a list of common occuring problems that can occur/pop up in this kind of relationship. I've seen them in bits in different articles, but it would be good to have them all in one place.
How would you describe your spiritual beliefs..? A mixture of christianity and new age spirituality
Are you artistic.................................................? Yes
Do you believe in reincarnation........................? Yes
poem by Asha
You are beautiful beyond my conception.
I have wild imaginations. You surpass them all.
I am dazzled, awe struck
as you bring me the light of the orginator
with a smile, and your healing hands
cupped, like it could contain the fierce glow
My hands over your own,
I can feel the heat you are handling
as, on the behalf of the God we serve,
you gift it, forever gifting it inside your very outworkings,
the moment by moment of your life.
an open channel
I am wiser now, not to pass it by
saying its too much, too rich
too extravagant, giving it back.
You reach to my heart
i gasp, expecting it to burn me away to a cinder
but its smoother than the entrance into a hot bath
relaxingly irresistible, playfully delightful
That I pull you into the bath-tub
on top of me, clothes and all
