The twin syndrome

Okay, so you know that a lot of twins report experiencing each other’s emotions, feeling when they get hurt or injured. Well, I think of that as the “Twin Syndrome”. Its a special connection. Well, I am not a twin. However, there have been two people in my life that I experience that kind of thing with. Its rather disconcerting at first but as time goes on you learn the benefits of that kind of connection to another human being. I kind of think of it as being two sides of the same coin. Each side is unique but they are each a part of the other and together it creates a whole.

Well, one of these people in my life just had their birthday the other day so I have spent a lot of time thinking about them this week and last week. Even with all this time and distance between us know there is still this deep connection that resonated in my soul. There are days I wake up and just know they are having a bad day, an emotional day, a good day. I know if I were to pick up the phone and call them what I am feeling would be what they are experiencing in their world right now.

Then there is my other friend who I talk to all the time and then for several days I don’t hear a word. My intuition says…hmm, something isn’t right. They are going through some kind of discombobulating experience. I do pick up the phone and find out that yes, that is indeed what is happening. We talk for an hour and both of us find we are feeling better for having connected. Its like we are each other’s life line and when there is a tug on it because the person is “drowning in life experiences” the other is there to lift them back up into the safety of the boat.

I know I’m not the only person out there that experiences this phenomenon. I love to hear other people’s stories of how they have experienced this kind of thing. It truly supports the idea that we are all one, united together in this human experience.
