Special Messengers: Reconnecting with Old Friends


Special Messengers
Reconnecting with Friends


When fate brings old friends back into our lives, there is always a reason.


Every person that passes through our lives makes a contribution to our life stories. There are those who play large roles and make deep impressions, but sometimes a brief special appearance before life takes them in another direction creates a meaningful connection. It is a rare gift when they suddenly reappear in our lives after a long absence.

Though the world may seem full of more people than we could ever know, we are often drawn to people with similar energy, which brings us together time and time again. On first meeting, the characters in our life stories may seem familiar. We may know each other from past lives or perhaps we merely recognize the energy of a kindred spirit. But when fate brings old friends back into our lives, there is always a reason. They may act as messengers, reminding us of a part of ourselves we have forgotten to nurture. They might appear to give us a chance to react in a new way to an old situation. They may even bring up unresolved issues so that we may complete them, giving us the chance to move forward on our life path. Whether old friends, previous romances, or once and future partners, their reappearance is more than mere chance. They may never know what they bring into our lives, but the renewed contact is a gift. 

If this hasn’t happened to you, maybe you are meant to initiate contact by seeking out old friends. If old friends come to mind or into your dreams, use their appearance as an excuse to get in touch. If an old song or movie reminds you of them, reach out to share the gift of renewed contact. Wherever you fall in the circle of connection and reconnection, be sure to look beyond the surprise of the moment to enjoy the deeper gift that this revelation brings.






I recently moved back to the East coast after many years in the high desert of NM (and CO) and have found myself reconnecting with several dear friends from long ago. It is a wonderful and heartfelt process, reunion, with those who are truly soul mates on our paths in life, after years of having no contact at all. We all change and grow, and the experience is both interesting and liberating as we get to know each other again, some of us as adults (one of them is an old high school friend), and catching up with others who have also and always shared our adult spiritual path.


I came across this lovely post from Daily Om on reconnecting with old friends as special messengers. She has some wonderful points and guides to watch for things I may have otherwise missed, and so I share it today in celebration of renunions with old friends. Those special souls who have somehow always accompanied a part of our hearts and journey's in life.
