KINDRED SPIRITS

I've never believed in coincidence especially in reference to the people that move about in and out of my life. I know that there is an instant spark of recognition when I meet certain strangers for the the first time. It's supernatural when the stranger react with that same "knowing" towards me.

The connecting between temporal matter (the body) and the eternal spirit (the soul) is how I define kindred spirits.

Everyone has asked the question "don't I know you from somewhere" at one time or another when meeting a stranger that appear somewhat familiar. Chances are you have. Maybe not in the here and now but perhaps in a different place and time.


I met my friend Sue in 1990. It was though she was my sister and I had known her forever. She moved thousands of miles away within six months of our meeting. We've only been face to face twice since meeting but we have stayed devout friends and confidantes.

Some people I have encountered on just a chance meeting I have formed family ties with. Even with my blogging friends I feel a connection to most that find themselves on my blog. Lee http://tossingout.blogspot.com/ I felt a bond with right away. Old Kitty http://ten-lives-second-chances.blogspot.com/ I have a definite connection to. I don't want to leave out my friend Yvonne at http://welcometomyworldofpoetry.blogspot.com/ yes she is my kindred spirit also.

What about you do you believe in kindred spirits?

  1. You've chosen a lovely list of kindred spirits! Lee and Yvonne are both wonderful and extremely supportive. Though I haven't met Old Kitty, I'll head on over now. Julie

  3. I completely understand where you are coming from. For some reason yesterday evening I was remembering an incident when a lady walked up and down past the cafe tables where I was sitting. She passed me without a glance, but I 'knew' she'd not only be back but would sit opposite me.
    She did, we talked, we'll never meet again, but that meeting had a big impact on both of us.

  5. I like this post. Yes, I think we do meet kindred spirits throughout our lives. It's hard to explain the connections we feel to certain people. It's almost like they were put here with us to help us along our journey.

  6. I totally agree with you. It seems we're destined to meet some people because they help guide us along our life's path.

  8. I love this post and i totally agree. Most of the people that I am the closest to are people that I formed an instant bond with because it was like talking to an old friend the first time we met.
