I’m sure every couple has a nickname for their partner that is a little cringe worthy, I believe my partner is more than a soul mate, we’re twin flames. In January 2012 I went to a psychic who told me that she could sense that I was going to get married soon to someone who I had been in love with many times before throughout history. I was in a relationship at the time but it wasn’t going well so I just assumed she was feeding me some story and I forgot all about it. That relationship ended and I met my now husband a few months later.
Early on in our relationship I did a card reading and asked ‘Is he the right person for me’. The card I picked was ‘twin flame.’ The card read: “This card indicates a twin flame relationship which is the deepest form of romantic love. To form such a partnership, you must follow your inner guidance, learn personal growth lessons, and have patience with Divine timing. Once twin flames find each other, everything in their life reaches new heights of love and light.” Since that day we have referred to each other as ‘twinsies’.
According to Wikepedia: A Twin flame is a spiritual concept describing a special soul connection between two souls. The twin flames are thought to be a template for an ancient/eternal type of relationship between lovers.
The night before he proposed, I was doing a card reading and he asked if he could pick a card out. He did and it was the twin flame card. I think that psychic was onto something, I wonder if I still have her number…
In June 2013 my boyfriend and I were in a Jewellery store and I saw a ring that I absolutely loved, there was only one in the store and it fit perfectly. I gave it to the sales lady and said I would get it but my boyfriend asked to speak to me, he took me outside the store and said ‘would you like this to be your engagement ring?’ I was so excited and said ‘if that’s a possibility’. We had talked about getting married before and I knew he wasn’t quite ready to get married so the commitment of buying the ring was such a huge step for us. Little did I know he would keep it hidden for so long! At first I thought about that ring every day. Every time we went out to dinner I thought ‘today is the day!’ Birthdays, Christmas, New Year, Easter, Anniversary – any moment surely was THE moment? Nope.. It got to the point where I thought it would never happen.
On the 3rd March 2015 I came home from work and opened the door to this:
I stood at the door awkwardly laughing in shock. I even said to myself ‘calm down, this might not be it’. Eventually he waved me forward. I tiptoed past the rose petals then got distracted by an envelope on the kitchen bench. I picked it up then realised behind it was the empty ring box! I finally walked up to him and he grabbed my hands. He said something but it was all a blur. I was crying laughing and shaking and yelled yes. It was then he got down on one knee and asked if I would be his wife. I said yes (again) and we were engaged!
We set a date for 12 weeks later and the wedding is this weekend. It was relatively easy to arrange because we had already discussed what we wanted, a small wedding with immediate family members only. Initially we wanted to elope but I had a strong desire for my dad to walk me down the aisle. I still got stressed in the process because I am an anxious person and tend to take on too much at once. I also find it hard to let go of control so insisted on planning the whole thing by myself.
I’m nervous, excited, anxious and emotional but everything is planned so all I can do is let go and enjoy the day. I can’t wait to marry the most wonderful man I have ever met!
