Need Advice - Someone new in life seems so familiar
« on: December 15, 2012, 11:22:11 am »
Greetings all,

I'm not new to this pagan area.  I've been on this mostly awesome, equally frustrating at times, journey of spirituality for many years.  I have empathic abilities and often send out energies to others that end up exhausting myself.  It took me a while to get this under control.  I dabble in tarot, but have never really caught on. I do rituals/spells when able and warranted.  Let's just say that I've been around the pagan block a few times.

Okay, with that out of the way I need advice.  I have recently had an experience that I'm not quite sure how to express.  And, my hope is that though it is new to me, perhaps others can offer advice.

I recently met, in person for the first time, a friend of hubby's family.  I don't know how to word it other than he feels familiar.  I'm old enough to be able to differentiate where some might suggest that it is simply because I've heard of him prior to meeting, but there is more to it than that.  I've met many people in my life after hearing about them for a long time and this is different.  At first, I thought perhaps his energy was what I was feeling, but the more we all hang out I swear it feels like he's been around forever.  Is there an explanation for this at all? Could it just be coincidence (which I generally don't believe in very much)?  Is there anyway to explore this or. . . ??

It is simply odd and throwing me.

Advice is welcomed. . .that is why I'm here.

Thanks everyone!

Amythist

Hey, welcome to TC! I may be nearish your area. I live in Buena Vista nom but grew up mostly in Roanoke. I have family in Blacksburg and Christiansburg too. Yay Southwest VA!

I tend to look at the most practical and mundane explanations first, just because most of the time there's not a deeper 'mystical' explanation. Sometimes we find people we really click with, for whatever reason. Matching personalities, or matching 'energies' if you feel that's true. It's the same reason we meet someone and are instantly turned off, even if they didn't do anything "wrong."

Now, if you're looking at mystical explanations - past lives or some deeper bond of your soul - they might come into play now. The question is less "are there mystical forces at work in this relationship?" and more "if there are, does that really affect how I make my decisions?"

Let's say you guys were best friends in a past life. That's awesome! Maybe you can be good friends now. But do you believe your actions in a past life really need to have a bearing on what you do in this one?

Just food for thought.

Cheers,
Sage
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.
