Have you ever noticed how someone can have a remarkable resemblance with another person you know? I’m not referring to physical likeness, but rather, an essence – an undefined je ne sais quoi about them.
When I was younger I often fantasized about gathering all people I know in a huge room, and divide everyone in different groups according to their characteristics. When I first started breathing energy into this fun little fantasy project of mine, my original intent was to group people according to physical likeness. But this was back in the early 90s, when I was still a teenager.
My approach to the assignment has significantly broadened over the years, and now I’m more interested in spiritual energies, emotional patterns, and unconscious feelings.
Can you imagine how extraordinary it would be first of all to have everyone you know under one roof? Although now in my 40s that room would probably need to be the size of a concert hall or two!
It would be amazing to be able to feel everyone’s energies, and see what it is about them that makes me experience them a certain way.
I should add however, that although I would love to meet everyone I know at the same time, the “likeness project” is definitely an adventure that does not need anyone else but myself in it.
How we interpret a person is partly based on how we experience that particular human. Another person may indeed see that very same human in a very different light.
Even more though, I have a deep inner feeling that there is another layer to this story. There is another quality or dimension here that we can’t describe, and may not be able to. But I know it’s there, and I am so very grateful for my ability to sense, imagine and reflect on inspiring projects like this one.
If you think of someone over the next few days that reminds you of someone you used to know, please send both of them some extra love.
We just don’t know what it is that makes them so similar…
Love and Gratitude,
