My partner and I have been together for only six months and I am suspecting we have some kind of deeper connection but I'm not sure what or how.
I will be 22 in November and he's recently turned 23. We first met, when I was 9 and he was 10, when we were at primary school together. We were 'boyfriend and girlfriend' for about a week back then haha. I moved 3 hours away at the end of the year and didn't have contact with him for around 12 years but never really forgot him.
About 2 years ago I started having very vivid dreams that stuck with me so much that I had to write them down. They were about a boy I knew from primary. He was vaguely familiar and remembered me more than I remembered him. Every time I'd dream the dream would have progressed from the last time. For example I dreamt that I saw him in a school/university setting and we acknowledged each other and then next time we would have a conversation until finally the dream turned into us actually being partners. Even though I knew these dreams were significant and involved someone from my past I wasn't aware it was him in particular.
He ended up finding me on facebook at the start of this year. He told me he had a secret to tell me when we met up in person again and then another that he can't tell me for two years. When he came over to my house the secret he had to tell me was that he'd actually liked me all of these years, never forgotten about me, had thought about me approximately every six months, and had been having dreams of us getting married. I thought he was joking but couldn't shake the dreams and feelings I myself had been having.
As we began to catch up on the years we'd been apart we noticed we'd been so close to seeing each other again. We had lived on the same street but opposite ends. We both were at the same concert at the beginning of 2010 and we both ended up in the same area of our city going to schools very close to each other. A little more talking and we noticed that not only had we been so close physically all these years but our life events have been eerily similar. His dad left when he was 5 and so did mine. People close to us have died within months of each other for similar things (both had forms of cancer and another couple had accidents). I know these things are common but it struck odd to me that they were so close in time. We were also engaged around the same time, both broke up for similar reasons and within a couple months apart (his engagement broke off in August and mine was October).
I can't help but feel this is more than just a whole bunch of coincidences.
We also found that at the beginning of our relationship he was able to read my mind. I didn't have to speak, he already knew. And I could feel what he was feeling. Not for me in particular but just his general energetic feeling.
I've also found that he pops up in my meditations, either in the background or right in front of me, and it's like there's some sort of telepathic information trying to be transmitted but I'm not picking up on it.
A little while before we met I noticed that when I meditated instead of one woman coming to guide me in my meditations it was both a woman and a male. They look alike, almost like they are brother and sister, but they have more of a loving energy towards each other.
I have no idea what is going on but I feel it is very significant. When we first started speaking again he said it was like we were soul mates (even though he doesn't believe in this stuff) and I was wondering if it were more like twin flames. I've just started wondering if maybe we've shared past lives together.
Has anyone had any similar experiences or have any advice about what could be going on? I would also be interested in how I could possibly go back into past lives and see what could be causing all of this.
