Twin Flames are very different from the traditional term, "Soul Mate." When we think of the one we love; the person who we are ideally matched beyond a shadow of doubt, we always think of the term, Soul Mate. Actually, we are technically all Soul Mates for one another. Did you know that? And, we all come in and out of one another's lives in order to teach each other, as well as learn from each other. But what, exactly, is a Soul Twin or Twin Flame?
Twin Flames: By Definition, this is the other half of your own soul. Strange concept, I agree. One might revert back to original thinking or even religion. So, what makes you think you're not a whole being, yourself?
Throughout the course of your life you may have had unusual or powerful dreams, visions, or fantasies of a mysterious person. You get a particular feeling and the energy of the individual feels familiar, as if it is someone you have already met in the past or someone you will meet in some unknown future. You have a vague feeling that this person is real even if you can not see a face or invent their physical appearance in your mind. You have a feeling as if this person is 'out there somewhere' and may even know who you are on the same level.
Characteristics: What Is So Unique About The Twin Flame? There may be an unusual synchronicity or event that surround the initial meeting between first flames. Often you have a feeling or 'knowing' of something that you just can't quite put into words. Twin flames often encounter each other for the first time (whether in person or online) in an unusual way. The twin flame comes into our life in an unexpected way out of the blue and usually there are synchronicity and strange occurrence or major shifts in energy the same week of the initial meeting.
The Relationship: The relationship is immediate, as though no time had been lost since you were last together. You feel comfortable with them and you feel you can truly be yourself with them. While soulmates experience this aspect too, with twins it's stronger. Sometimes conversation seem to last forever and there is not much that twin flames are not willing to talk about. It's as if you could share your entire life with this person and there is a level of openness and understanding between you that brings a comfortable sense of intrigue and sense of familiarity.
The Love: it's a more "pure" and unconditional love, absent of insecurities, jealousies or interference. You feel an overwhelming sense of love and attraction. This love is genuine and heartfelt and you feel magnetically drawn to their energy. This is not to be confused with lust or an obsessive love. No obsession exists within the Twin Flame Union. Twin flame love is unconditional and transcends the ego. If you have found your twin flame it does not mean that the relationship will necessarily be free from issues or personal conflict. There may still be lessons and healing that must take place between the twin souls. Twin flames are still human beings on the physical level.
You feel a sense of completion that goes beyond words. This feeling is about wholeness on a soul level that is beyond the physical. Each twin flame is still an individual and is not 'the other half of your soul' as if you are a complete soul now that you have found them. You are meeting an energetic mirror of your own soul. You share a vibration and you resonate with them. You even feel an attraction to the sound of their voice and it may even sound familiar to you.
Timing: It's all-important. Upon the Twin Flame Union, or I should actually say, "reunion," there exists no "ego," nor is any inner work left to be completed. If the Twins have met in the physical too early, there exists a Rescue Phase through which one will "rescue" the other, offering a unique assistance like no other possibly can. Upon many reunions, twins are physically or emotionally plagued with issues that can range from being already in a marriage or relationship with another person to geographical circumstances which prevent the physical reunion. The couple works carefully over a period of aprox. 8 months (Numerology: 8 = Infinity) to remedy any underlying issues regarding geography, other relationships, and so on. This process can occur simultaneously with the Running Phase (the "push-pull" phase that lasts aprox. 8 months its self.) This 8 month process is important to the Union, as it's a time for spiritual growth and acceptance, as well as resolution regarding other aspects of each individual.
It is important to remember that soulmates also experience these same qualities and traits as outlined in this blog post.
SIGNS OF THE TWIN FLAME RELATIONSHIP
1. A Sense Of Familiarity and "Knowing." There is No Question. Upon first meeting one another there is an instant connection and immediate bond. The feeling is as if you have known each other before and there is a feeling of familiarity. Whether you have both met in physical person or not, there is usually a peculiar sensation--an intuitive knowing--that you will play an important role in each other's life.
2. Telepathy - You BOTH Recognize Telepathy Exists and You Both Discuss It. Telepathy is more common and even natural within twin soul connections. Telepathic communication occurs frequently as each twin can sometimes pick up on the other's thoughts or feelings. Twin flames often reflect each other's moods and can feel each other at a distance. Whatever is effecting one twin, whether mental, physical, emotional or spiritual, often effects the other.
3. The eyes are the windows to the soul. When twin flames gaze into one another's eyes there is a profound intensity. Making eye contact with your twin flame can feel unusual at times because it is as if you are staring into your own soul; what you feel often depends on what aspect of your own soul your own soul you are seeing--anything that is being repressed or that needs to be healed will also be felt and reflected through the eyes.
4. Moments when there is a overwhelming feeling of unconditional love. The feeling can be felt very intensely in one or more of the Chakra Centers, especially the heart Chakra. The love can be absolutely explosive and expands one into a feeling of oneness with their twin, and this feeling is often expanded to encompass a feeling of spiritual oneness with all things. The chemistry between the twins can be extremely powerful. There are moments of complete certainty that they are meant to be in each others lives for a reason, no matter what, and that there is a higher purpose for their union with one another.
5. All emotions, whether negative or positive, is amplified between twin flames. Feelings are often exaggerated compared to other relationships. When things are good it feels incredibly good! But when things are not going so well, the feelings can be incredibly painful. There is more emotional and energetic intensity between twin flames because things are felt on a soul level. Since twin flames are often empathetic with one another, it can become an overwhelming emotional roller coaster at times when they are absorbing each others emotions alongside feeling the intensity of their own.
6. The Divine Purpose. There exists, as the center of all Twin Flame Unions, a Divine Purpose. Twin Flame connections are identical to those connections between Soul Mates, however, the main focus between the couple engaged in a Divine Union will be their Divine Purpose. This will be a project of sorts, that will have revealed its self early on in the relationship. This project will have something to do with Universal Healing and The Universal Light Grid. Perhaps you and your twin flame will embark on a project regarding a certain aspect of animal rights. Perhaps you're both focused on a different sort of project. The romance within a union is basically an afterthought. I can't tell you how many times I have read for "twin flames" who were supposedly in pain due to their partner leaving, and it turned out that they were simply just misguided Soul Mates. The Twin Flame will be someone COMPLETELY FOCUSED ON UNIVERSAL HEALING THROUGH A VERY SPECIFIC PROJECT. I have also heard from supposed TF's that they assumed their purpose was to "raise the vibration of others." Um....no. Twins who are legitimately in Full Union will have been focused on some specific project together, and their romance will come secondary, as an afterthought. You may have been friends with your twin, engaged on a certain project regarding something specific (and I don't mean people who simply work together on any project - the project will be regarding Universal Light Grid or Universal Healing) and will come to realize their connection later on. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOUL MATES - AND WE ARE ALL SOUL MATES FOR ONE ANOTHER - EVEN I AM YOUR SOUL MATE, AS I AM TEACHING YOU SOMETHING - AND TWIN FLAMES IS THE DIVINE PURPOSE. THE DIVINE PURPOSE MUST EXIST. If you are in a soul mate relationship versus a TF, this does not mean that the relationship is any less special or meaningful. It is simply that the TF is the other half of a soul, and must complete their Divine Purpose directly.
7. Numerology and Dreams play a remarkable role in the Union. Reoccurring numbers or repeated number sequences are are common occurrence within twin flame connections. The 11:11 and other number synchronicities are also a common feature. There may be similarities and synchronistic patterns found within each of the twin flames birth dates, anniversaries, addresses, phone numbers, anniversaries and major life events. In most cases, twins will add their life path numbers together and end up with one or the other's life path number again. In most cases, twins will always have the same soul number and often that soul number will be an 8 (the number of infinity.)
Both twin flames may have unusual dreams involving the other and telepathy often occurs between twins in the dream state. Many twin flames have shared or reoccurring dreams of one another, often prior to actually meeting their twin. Major themes in the twin flame relationship or issues that must be worked on together or in the individual life of one of the twins is often featured in dreams, and even in day dreams or visions.
8. The previously mentioned Runner Phase. Separation is a common theme in the twin flame relationship. There is usually a swinging back and forth from reunion to separation. The separation either occurs because of distance or an inability to be together in the physical for one or more reasons. Often the separations can occur if their is turbulence within the relationship due to unresolved emotional baggage that one or both of the twins is carrying. The reunion takes place again when healing is ready to occur. There is an intense repelling and magnetic attraction that takes place between twins; a pushing and pulling which indicates that much healing work still needs to be done before a permanent reunion can occur.
The twin flame relationship changes your life. You embark on the Divine Purpose together as a Union, and have a very important purpose to serve humanity. Like soul mates: Each twin is transformed in many ways throughout the connection. The twin flame relationship challenges each soul to grow and expand into their highest potential to fulfill their mission and purpose on the planet and in each others lives. This constant changing and expansion can occur quote frequently and rapidly within the twin flame relationship. Often it is so intense that one of the twins may run from the relationship, or there may be difficulty in being together for long periods of time.
Twin flames are connected even at a distance. Telepathy and empathy are commonly intense between the twin flames. Each twin may pick up on the others thoughts they may find themselves often calling, texting, or emailing around the same time, and also finishing each others sentences. Synchronicities and unusual parallels often occur within the lives and daily events of each of the twin flames. Manifestations are natural with twins and happens often.
