Throughout our lives we form many personal, emotional and spiritual connections. Most of these do not have a strong impact on us – they are just a common part of life and serve only to enrich our experiences. But there are also a number of relationships and connections that we make that have a great significance. These spiritual connections are very strong and, once formed, they have a pretty significant impact on our emotions and thinking. Thus, we begin sensing a person’s moods, vibes, or their desires even in the absence of their presence.
