Being a twin is something so ever special.
I was born a twin so I don't know any other way of living besides the one of being a twin. Sometimes I try to imagine how my life would be if I was "normal". Well, my life would be totally different.
We grew up and literally went through all stages in life almost at the same time: birth, first tooth, graduation, puberty, high school, first kiss, college, first love, etc. I was always ahead of my sister for most things ( I'm older by a hopping 5 minute!) and that is why we were basically always able to relate to one another. I do not recall a period in my life where my sister was not a part of it. She's everywhere throughout the album of my life from birth until now and needless to say that we have a very special bond.
We grew up in a large family of 6 siblings: us being the oldest, 2 younger sisters and identical twin brothers as well! Yup, two sets of identical twins in our family!! Our parents simply had the magic touch:) Although we are both close to our other sisters, it would be accurate to say that we are by far the closest. We have never experienced some sort of situation where I " strongly felt" something about my sister or vice versa but I would say that the closeness between us allows me to be able to read her mind and she can often read mine as well. We know each other so well that sometimes I just have to glance at her and I would know what she's thinking. Her body language, her facial expressions, I know her taste and opinions, etc. To me, she is easily readable. Most of the time, we answer the same things at the same time with the same tone...FREAKY! I hate it when it happens cause I know we sound so creepy! And so most of the time, we end up looking at each other and we both say " shut up! why do you have to say the same thing as me?" LOL, I'm sure we also look funny when that happens... Sometimes, we've had almost identical dreams...very strange as I think dreams mean a lot...
I believe this type of bond and closeness is the same type as certain couples (soulmates) or long-time best friends that are extremely close to one another can experience. Now thank god, nothing serious has ever happened to neither of us for me to able to say that I would feel something. However, I believe that I'm an intuitive person by nature and sometimes I do see things and have dreams that do happen and so, I wouldn't be surprised if I felt something in case of emergency. It is most likely more a question of connection and closeness rather than being a twin or not...I think.
Have you lived a psychic connection with someone you'd like to share?
