Today it is actually exactly two years ago since mine and Bryans souls connected for the very first time. We could have met before, as we both celebrated New Years Eve 2013 in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, and we probably walked the same streets around the same time, but the universe didn’t think it was time for us until the 14th of November 2013.
I was living the beautiful Bondi-life, surfing and hanging at the beach most of my time. I was young and wild and free, as always, and I was happily single since the day I was born. “I definitely don’t want to have a boyfriend, ever!” is what I told my friend Daniel when he asked if I had met someone, a couple of weeks before I met Bryan. He bet my travels would let me cross paths with some guy who would make me change my mind and make me fall in love and I laughed him in the face and bet I would never. Haha. Meanwhile, Bryan was living less than 1 km away from my place.
Now to the mysterious part. Two nights before I met him, when I was just about to sleep, my flatmate Carolina rushed in to my room to tell me that I haaad to try this meditation that she just did! A meditation to attract your soulmate. I had never listened to any meditation track ever, and I did not believe there would be a soulmate out there for me, but somehow I just tried it. And I tried it again and again, three times, until I could actually concentrate deeply. In the end of the track, the voice told me that I should see my soulmate, and I saw a beautiful man with long hair and extremely blue eyes. I was a little fascinated but I didn’t think about it anymore until half a year later when I realized I had found him.
Two days after it was Thursday, and Ivy, the biggest nightclub in Sydney, had free entry. My friends had asked me to come every Thursday but my answer had always been no. Except this time, I changed my mind in the last minute. I still remember it, I was about to go to sleep so I could wake up for a sunrise surf, but instead I got an impulse and got myself ready in 10 minutes. I took the bus with my friends, and on the bus we met some people who were going to some cool party in Kings Cross so we thought we could join them. We got off the bus but before going in to the party we changed our mind for some strange reason I cannot even remember, and jumped on the train towards the city and Ivy.
Bryan on the other side, was partying barefoot on the top floor of Ivy, where there was a poolparty. His lack of shoes got him kicked out. On the way out, his drunk but clever mind realized he could walk in with his shoes on, through the other entry. And I still cannot believe it, but just after he came in, he saw ME out of all the hundreds of beautiful people in this big nightclub! He grabbed my arm from behind when I was walking, and I was turning my head to tell “that annoying man grabbing my arm” to fuck off, until I looked in to the most beautiful eyes I´ve ever seen. They are the same colour as the ocean on a sunny day..
We started hanging out, and we felt really good together. Sometimes I almost got scared when I realized how similar we are, sharing the same philosophy of life, listening to the same music, thinking the same.. And people around us thought we were a couple. But we had different roads to take, I was going to New Zealand when my Australian visa expired, and Bryan was going to Asia when his expired, He left before, and not even one week after, when we were texting on facebook, he just said “Come here bella!” and I knew immediately, from the bottom of my heart, that I wanted to go.
We met up in Singapore one month later, and travelled north to Tioman Island to spend two weeks together. Then I was gonna go to New Zealand. But we fell in love on this paradise island in Malaysia, and I changed my ticket like 7 times before we went to NZ together 7 months later. There we fullfilled one of our dreams, to buy a hippievan and travel around the magical south island. We´re lucky enough to be the same kind of travellers aswell, so we will keep on fullfilling our dreams around the world.
I guess our story isn’t too common, so I thought I should share it with you even if it is quite personal. What do you think? Do you believe that a meditation can attract your soulmate?
