I was recalling a conversation I had years ago when I had the ‘spirit’ of my twin – as well as the ‘spirit’ of a soul-mate coming to me in dreams at night. The two ‘spirits’ were trying to explain to me the difference between a ‘soul-mate’ type of relationship and the relationship between the ‘twin.’ They used the ‘sun’ and the ‘moon’ as an allegory. They stated that the rays of love from the ‘soul-mate’ were like a ‘satellite’ being used to bounce off the energy of love from the source of the true ‘heart’ whom ours truly were merged together as one – as a singular soul.
My twin was expressing how the meeting between the ‘girlfriend’ I had shared time with here in this world – had been arranged prior by their ‘spiritual insights’ on the other side.
I felt a part of this was true due to my vague memories of my 1978 near death experience. I felt that I wanted to come back to this world while I was ‘in spirit’ – but once I got back – I couldn’t remember why I had felt it was important to come into this world again. I felt there was a slight memory of someone playing a matchmaker hand in my life – and I was curious to meet the ‘souls’ of the ones that had been arranged in something like a ‘fixed’ date in my future. (I knew I had soul-mates lined up during my NDE and that was an exciting thought.)
Some of my friends were asking me why in the world I choose to come back to this world – if I had made it past the pearly gates. I told them,
“My twin done set me up with some blind dates. I don’t want to let my twin down and be a no-show and make them look bad.”
This boggled the minds of people because they felt the idea of a ‘twin’ was from the Plato theory on the subject matter. They felt the whole purpose of the game of love was to search out your other half. They couldn’t see the ‘other half’ setting up dates for you while you were in this world. I didn’t really see the ‘twin’ as a lover as much as I saw the twin as a part of my own soul. Back in my youth – the thought of having your other half as a lover – made as much sense to me as spending time alone in the bathroom. [That is where my perception was back in the early 80's]
In hindsight – I think that metaphor is a good one. A soul-mate brings a reflection of the true light of love that comes from the ‘source’ while we are in a blind state here in this world. Due to our blindness – that enormous ray of light has to come in small doses to prepare us for the full scope of the intensity that exists in that sort of bonding that takes place between two twins.
