I Feel Like I Know You

Have you ever met someone and either you or the other person said, “I feel like I know you”? Then the question that follows is usually “why is that?”  We spend some of the time trying remember if we have met before.  Then we try to see if we have people in common.  After awhile we shrug it off but yet there is a knowing that “we know each other”…but the how still lingers.  The feeling of familiarity is so strong…it is beyond time and space…although I may have just learned the person’s name I feel like I can say, “I know you”.  And then deep down you realize that this is a Divine connection, a connection made by Spirit.

Many of my “sister-friend” relationships started in this manner of an “instant connection”.  Instead of saying, “it’s so nice to meet you,” it was more like “hey, where have you been?”  The bond between us was strong and happened in an instant.

Within the last several weeks, I have either said or had people say to me “I feel like I know you!” My mind used to wander into possible past life relationships, current reasons that we have been brought together, and/or questioning if this is a “reason, season, or lifetime” relationship, but now I have learned to recognize when Spirit I am being Connected by the Spirit.

Throughout life I have heard people use the phrase “blood is thicker than water” to describe a strong family bond; however, I now say

“Spirit is thicker than blood and water.”

I have found that when Spirit makes a connection between people who connection is amazing.  You can think about that person and they will call or you may call right at the time that the person was thinking about calling you.  You may wake up in the middle of the night and the phone will ring or a text will come through.  All kinds of incredible “Divine incidents” occur to remind you that you have been Connected by the Spirit.

Over time I have learned to recognize when Spirit is making these connections and yield to the process.  I have even helped some people recognize and become comfortable with these types of connections in their lives as well.

So the next time someone says to you or you meet someone and you find yourself saying, “I feel like I know you,” I encourage you to smile, breathe easy, ask for guidance and clarity within this connection and know that you are being Connected by the Spirit.

God Bless and continue to Live By The Spirit.
