"Your 'soul friend,' your 'Anam Cara.'"

“Your ‘soul friend,’ your ‘Anam Cara.'”

Hi Anthony!

Having read this over several times now, I’ve a few points of interest I’d like to understand more clearly, yes.

First, you state that Robert & I knew, lived & loved one another while on The Other Side then we decided to come to the Physical world. Upon deciding this, did we also plan on traveling together so we can stay together during our education here? I ask this because somehow our timing was waaay off. Learning our lessons was foremost I understand that, “Knowing” he would return Home before me, not so much. Yes I’d agree to most anything Robert may have wanted here or back home (I believe) but to be separated from one another for so long only to find one another again when it wasn’t correct to be together by “man’s law” I have to say I question my sanity & thought process on the Other Side. I hope this doesn’t offend the souls or Our Creator, these are the thoughts & yes questions from a woman who has lost her one truest love HERE in this goofy, wacky & bloody physical world.

Second, you stated that when we reunite once again that my darling Robert will be even more beautiful & magnificent than when he was here in the physical world. Let me tell you something Anthony, I used to say to Robert that he was the most handsomest man I’ve known in this world, he’d become bashful & ask me to stop. Thinking back to those moments I realize I was ALWAYS RIGHT! ;-D Further, I promise you, I could SEE, each time he looked at me, the love he had for me in his beautiful hazel eyes; I would also HEAR the love in his voice. I’ve no doubt he’s smiling as I type this (joyful heart). Now I ask you Anthony how could I have agreed to his leaving here to go back Home w/o me?! I had to have been crazy in love w/him to agree to something like that right :-)

Robert certainly was “no figment” or “design” of mine I know that more now than when I wrote the comment a few comments back. We all have a little piece of God within as we enter this foggy physical world for that I am truly grateful. Without that I think each of us would be truly lost.

You’re a very gifted & special human being Anthony!

Blessed be,
Cookie

 Cookie, I’m going to take your questions, point by point.First, you state that Robert & I knew, lived & loved one another while on The Other Side then we decided to come to the Physical world. Upon deciding this, did we also plan on traveling together so we can stay together during our education here? I ask this because somehow our timing was waaay off.

I hope this doesn’t offend the souls or Our Creator, these are the thoughts & yes questions from a woman who has lost her one truest love HERE in this goofy, wacky & bloody physical world.

 

Someday

Someday,

I’ll see you again,

but I doubt

that you’ll remember me,

or that

you’ll be wearing in your hair

that scarlet ribbon I’m so fond of.

 

But you’ll still be as beautiful

as you are now

and your eyes

will still laugh with your smile.

And that’ll help me forget

my loneliness,

for at least a little while.

 

I wrote that poem when I was in the 9th grade for Julie Gootee, who was in the 11th grade. I had (as you can tell) a HUGE crush on her! The next year, she graduated and I went back to Guam with my family. I haven’t seen her since. Even now, as I write this, I can remember what she looked like back in Loogootee, Indiana, all those years ago.

Bad timing? I don’t think so.

She graduated when she was supposed to graduate high school. I moved back home to Guam, because it’s where my life took me. Period.

I know it sounds crazy, but the quicker we learn the lessons we’re supposed to learn, and teach the lessons we’re supposed to teach, we graduate from this life, and return back home. We grieve their loss, the Other Side celebrates their return.

How often do you question the “timing” of your birth in this life? If you think about it, that was a “loss” to those on the Other Side.

But you will return home again. When you do, and you go through your life review, everything will make sense.

 

Second, you stated that when we reunite once again that my darling Robert will be even more beautiful & magnificent than when he was here in the physical world. Let me tell you something Anthony, I used to say to Robert that he was the most handsomest man I’ve known in this world, he’d become bashful & ask me to stop.

Are you familiar with the term, “anam cara?” Here’s the definition, which I pulled off  “Ask.com.”

According to Celtic spiritual tradition, the soul shines all around the body like a luminous cloud. When you are very open, appreciative, and trusting with another person, your two souls flow together. This deeply felt bond with another person means you have found your anam cara, or “Soul Friend.” Your anam cara always beholds your light and beauty, and accepts you for who you truly are. In Celtic spirituality, the anam cara friendship awakens the fullness and mystery of your life. You are joined in an ancient and eternal union with humanity that cuts across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy, and definition. When you are blessed with an anam cara, the Irish believe, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home. 

I believe that Robert was your “anam cara,” while he was here. The good news is that there isn’t one “Anam Cara” per customer here on Earth. That’s what God wants you to know. That’s what Robert wants you to know.

Blessings,

Anthony
