Paula Byrne made me smile when she wrote in the Daily Mail newspaper a few days ago, 'My husband and I have got sixth sense. The trouble is, I don't always want to know what he's thinking!'
Unfortunately my wife is the opposite, she likes to know what I'm thinking and again, unfortunately, often does!
Paula is convinced that she and her husband are 'soul mates' and, because of this, they have a telepathic connection. She says that when apart they will pick up the phone and call each other at precisely the same time and often to share exactly the same thought or idea.
She gives an example of this when they were deciding if they should make a huge life changing decision, which involved moving and changing jobs. She spent a night fretting about the decision.
As her husband was abroad on business she telephoned him and told him: 'Don't worry, trust me, we must do this. It will all be okay. I've got a strong feeling it will all work out.'
He straight away said: 'That's just what I was about to say to you. I was dialling you when the phone rang.
Paula describes her telepathy with her husband as being 'strange and inexplicable'. She says that since they met sixteen years ago (when they were both married to other people) there was a strange feeling of completion and of 'oneness'.
It was as if Plato's lost twin myth was true. The philosopher told of how we are born as only half of our true selves and wander the earth until we find our twin - our lost other half or soul mate.
Paula believes that this is why telepathy works through some couples. It's simply because they are in fact one. They have found their other half and as such are complete.
This telepathy between linked halves is different from simply being in sync with someone and anticipating their thoughts or feelings. Many couples, if they live together for a long period, begin to mirror each others thoughts. But with a soul mate or Plato's twin it is more than this, far more and could be described as paranormal.
Paula also tells of the time when her second child fell desperately ill with kidney failure. There was another telepathic moment. She asked the doctor if the disease was genetic. That evening she looked at her husband and, without her saying a word, he said, "Yes, you're right, of course we should have another child."
Right from the start of their relationship there was an instant connection and a feeling of, "Oh, so there you are." They had shared tastes, the same favourite piece of music, poem, painting and same favourite Beatle (George).
Telepathy works between soul mates. Another example can be seen in the post Telepathy Between Husband And Wife.
And going back to Paula and her husband, their child Ellie had a kidney transplant which was successful. They both 'knew' she was okay after the operation.
