I've always been a firm believer people enter our lives for a reason. Whether it is something happening in our lives at the moment that our souls need support in one way or another, or just a spiritual friend to help us deepen our faith. People come and go into our lives to help guide us in the direction our path should take at that time.
Last night I fired up my computer and the first thing I saw was a message from one of my friends with a few other friends thrown in on the conversation. What stood out, however, was the reminder of my spiritual side. I then messaged one of my other friends to ask about something she'd told me about and to find out how it went. This lead to an amazing conversation and reminded me just how important spiritual friends can be.
They remind us that spirit is a gentle soul, who is not pushy, but is always constant. That reminder was eye opening but also feed my soul in a way it hadn't been fed in quite awhile. Just having such a conversation with a friend and then also realizing the reason this friend is present in my life was such a peace-filled feeling.
This friend and I connect on a writing level, very well. We also connect on a friendship level, where we discuss life and what's happening in our lives. We offer one another advice, we give each other comfort when things seem to be falling apart. We also knew we believed much the same way.
Then last evening during our conversation it was as if that spiritual connection clicked even deeper reminding me just how important a spiritual friend can be to the soul.
This is one aspect of life people seem to put on the back burner. They find friends who feed all other aspects of their lives. Helping one to develop steady strong ways (or not so strong ways) of dealing with daily life. But when it comes to strengthening our souls, well, we always feel like there is time for that later.
Then out of the blue Spirit reminds you now is the time. So we talked on a level that we upped the game a bit more. We spoke candidly on our beliefs and pushed forward in this aspect of our friendship. I've only met a handful of people in my lifetime that fits this bill for me. Three to be exact. However, two of which our souls are joined through Spirit and our writing world. Souls that can understand fully all that I am.
Friendships that are not suffocating, but allow one to be free to be themselves without restriction. To me this is friendship. This is what we need to help us grow in life. They enhance all aspects of who you are, not just the areas needed for right now. It's such a beautiful thing.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
