An oriental legend tells that the people destined to know each other are connected by an invisible red thread. This thread never disappears and remains constantly tied to your fingers, regardless of time and distance.

No matter how long it takes you to meet that person, it does not matter how much time you spend without seeing it, it does not even matter if you live on the other side of the world: the thread will stretch to infinity but it will never break. Its owner is destiny. Let’s delve into this magical legend.

“You can never escape from your heart,
so it’s better that you listen to what he has to tell you… “

-Paulo Coelho-

A red thread that connects us

This invisible thread carries with you from your birth and will accompany you, tensed to a greater or lesser extent, more or less entangled, throughout your life. So, the Grandfather of the Moon, every night goes out to meet the newborns and tie a red thread to his finger. A thread that will decide your future and your encounters, a thread that will guide these souls so that they never get lost … The legend goes like this:

“A long time ago, an emperor learned that one of the provinces of his kingdom lived a very powerful witch, who had the ability to see the red thread of destiny and sent to bring before his presence.

When the witch arrived, the emperor ordered her to look for the other end of the thread that she had tied to her little finger and to take it to what would be his wife. The witch agreed to this request and began to follow and follow the thread. This search took them to a market, where a poor peasant with a baby in her arms offered her products. When she reached this peasant woman, she stopped in front of her and invited her to stand up. He made the young emperor come and said, “Here ends your thread,” but upon hearing this the emperor became enraged, believing that it was a mockery of the witch. This pushed the peasant who was still carrying her little baby in her arms and made her fall, causing the baby to get a big wound on her forehead. Then, he ordered his guards to stop the witch and cut off her head.

Many years later, the moment came when this emperor was to marry and his court recommended that it was best for him to marry the daughter of a very powerful general. He accepted and the day of the wedding arrived. And at the moment of seeing for the first time the face of his wife, who entered the temple with a beautiful dress and a veil that completely covered her… When she lifted it up, she saw that that beautiful face had a very peculiar scar on her forehead.”

A red thread straight to the heart

This legend is so deeply rooted in Eastern cultures that millions of people have a real red thread attached to them. Although there is no clarity about whether the origin is Chinese or Japanese. It is said that the legend began when we learned that the ulnar artery connects the little finger (other sources speak of the ring finger, which has more tradition in our culture) with the heart, source of life and eternally conceived as the home of love…

A red thread that we can not impose our whims or our ignorance, a red thread that we can not break or fray. A red thread direct to the heart, which connects the eternal loves, to the deep ones, those that symbolize the before and for those that are not there after. The love of a mother, a father, a brother, a child, a friend, a man or a woman … A red thread that symbolizes love and common interest … The magic of the heart.

Everyone who interprets it as they want but what is clear is that, on occasion, coincidences are so strong that they leave no room for doubt… Twin souls are called, hearts intertwined with one or several eternities for living…
