They say the eyes are the window to the soul.
Have you ever looked into someone’s eyes and seen something there that you just can’t explain but is just so familiar? Something that pulls at you and says “I know you” even though you’ve just met that person?
In the movie Hook (Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman), the Lost Boys look at the grown up Peter. The others don’t believe he’s Peter Pan, but one boy looks long and hard and squishes Peter’s face a bit. After considerable observation, he looks deep into Peter’s eyes and says “Oh! There you are, Peter!”
Energy doesn’t die, it is merely transformed. I believe the same thing of the soul. I also believe we develop deep connections to other souls over lifetimes spent together. Perhaps we were friends, lovers, family or enemies, but we have a connection that never dies. While we may not remember our past lives, the soul remembers who we were and recognizes past connections instantly.
I call these people Soul Friends.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel far and wide and to meet many people on this earth. Some of them I’ve forgotten while others I’ll never forget. So many were soul friends! People who I instantly knew that I liked but had no idea why. People I was drawn to without any reasonable explanation. People like Karen, Rose, Kevin, and too many others to list (but you all know who you are!).
While they always disappear into their lives far apart from mine, we still share that connection – a connection forged over lifetimes. No matter how long we are apart, we always seem to pick up again as though no time has passed.
When one soul cries out for help, the Universe delivers. Usually, it is just a matter of one soul saying to another “We are very old friends and I am here for you.”
