    I met my soul mate in July 2017. They say that, if you are lucky, you will get to meet your soul mate at least once during your lifetime on this earth. I was truly blessed to have met mine. Out of respect for her privacy, I will not mention her name, but refer to her initials which are T.M.

    T.M. is a very gifted an beautiful person with an equally beautiful mind and soul. The moment we met, we both experienced a moment of déjà vu. I gazed into her eyes and a thousand lifetimes flashed through my mind's eye. I could see the recognition in her eyes as well. Although we've just met, it was as if we knew each other our whole lives.

    I have never experienced this intense feeling of love before. We had a spiritual connection and were drawn to each other instantly.

    I will never forget what I saw in her eyes. She had three different colours that shone through her eyes when she talked. I would also get to see a fourth colour. Her eyes turned blueish when she talked about her passions and a unique unreal white, when she was talking about God and her devine calling. Then it turned a dark brown when she was retreating into herself and wanted to protect herself. But I saw a soft green in her eyes when she spoke about us and her feelings for me. We both have the gift, or is it rather a curse, to see into a person's soul.

    Because we both had been in bad relationships and even worse breakups, we were sceptical to enter into a relationship again. Everything went well, but her fear of relationships and rejection were even stronger than mine, so she decided, out of self preservation, that we are not meant to be in a relationship. I have never experienced such a feeling of hurt and self-dispair. Not even through my previous breakups.

    T.M. opened my eyes to other things as well and even got me, a shy introvert, to record a song or two. We would have been great together.

    T.M. is also the only person that I ever allowed to get to see and know the real me. No one else will ever again have the privilege of me opening up an exposing my soul, and my true self, to them. Never again! ! !
