How Does The Counterfeit "False" Twin Help You Get To Union With Your Twin?


The Counterfeit, or False Twin plays a very important role in the reunion and in the connection of twin flames. All twin flames have a false twin, whether or not they know it. While all soul mate connections prepare us for the true twin flame union, some more than others, there is only one false twin.

Everyone you meet on any level is a soul mate. Whether you pass them once on the street or have a long romantic relationship with them, we are all one another's soul mates. Everything and everyone is interconnected.

As we enter Ascension and are activated, we begin to be able to connect with others on an extraordinarily deep level, like nothing we have ever experienced before. Oftentimes, activation begins slowly and we find we are deeply connected to many, but a like soul mate often comes easily as far as connection. This is often accompanied by the symptoms of awakening. Suddenly, we find ourselves experiencing unconditional love and a never-before-seen complete chakra connection with a soul mate on a level so deep that it creates an intensity like no other that is simply indescribable in words. We find that we complete each other and telepathy exists. Nothing is missing. There's even the traditional twin flame template, push-pull, signs and symptoms and syncs galore. This is why the term False Twin rings so accuratly. The connection has all the makings of a twin flame reunion and even looks like a twin flame connection in the journey aspect.

There is only one difference between twin flame and your false twin flame: the mission. One results in a joined mission to raise the universal vibration while the other does not.

"But in my heart I can feel it!" Of course you can. Otherwise, it would be called something else other than False Twin. It would be called the "really passionate soulmate-like-me connection" instead of the false or counterfeit twin.

You may have already met and noted your counterfeit twin, or you may not have met them yet. You may connect with them before your reunion or after you've already met your twin. If your twin has connected with their false twin before the reunion, chances are, you'll meet yours afterward. This is a common mirror in twin flames. Either way, your false twin will be second only in importance in your soul mate relationships.

The false twin prepares us in amazing ways for the true twin. Sometimes the false twin serves as the catalyst to end longstanding relationships such as marriages or karmic partnerships to make room for the true twin to enter. Sometimes the false twin aids in activating the process of ascension to awaken. The false twin can even Jumpstart healing processes to pave the way for the twin flame journey. As unique and painful (and pleasurable) as the false twin may be, it's the most important relationship you will have apart from your true twin flame.

Like real twins, the counterfeit twin is not perfect, nor is it a perfect relationship. To imply perfection would be inhuman. All twins and false twins are human. Both are imperfect in their own respect. Unless, of course, diagnosed with the christ complex (had to throw my psych degree around and use it for science in here! Now, back to the regularly scheduled metaphysical parapsychology!)


1. Activation of healing processes, inner growth and higher self.

2. Activation of the ascension process.

3. Release of obsessive attachments prior to true twin flame connection.

4. Activation of intuitive and metaphysical gifts and abilities.

5. Release of negative energies.

6. Intended soul experience and soul learning.

The false twin can be so intense that it causes those who have never even heard of twin flame as a concept to embark on researching the subject. I like to think of the false twin as a sort of cramming study session in preparation for the true twin flame.

False twin connections can be as brief as a few days, or can take years to process through, depending on the person and the twin flame couple in question. So much healing, learning, processing, purging and development have to transpire prior to the true twin flames' divine mission beginning, that the false twin can be quite a draining experience. Each person is unique and thus, each false twin couple is also equally unique. Most twins do not realize who their false twin is or was, until they have processed through the connection and/or have connected with the true twin.

Have you met your false twin? What did you contribute and receive from the relationship?



My false twin flame came in exactly the way the article describes in some instances- to break off a karmic relationship. I learned heavy lessons in this karmic relationship and the attachment was deep. My false twin flame came in and swept me off my feet- into dreamy distraction. The shallow attributes that our primal instincts hook onto were there. He was gorgeous and we had a lot of synchronistic similarities. With his help, I was able to move on from the guilt and shame that plagued me from my karmic relationship. I looked into that guilt and shame with a lot of inner child work.
The false twin flame made me feel anxious and full of butterflies. I was reckless like a teenager. I put the hope of my future into him. He essentially wanted nothing but a friends-with- benefits situation and I really had to question my self worth. I made self love the forefront of my healing. How would my perceived “twin flame” not want me? This deep dive into myself was essential. The virus hit and my false twin flame was no where to be found- without a hookup, he didn’t bother to explore the depths of who I was.
I came into acceptance that I was the love that I was always looking for…
and lo and behold… that’s when my real twin flame came in.
He fits me like a glove and I question sometimes if this is the truest love of my life. I have been programmed to ache and pain in love- but he gives none of that. I am so grateful and scared for this journey. I have a partner to walk with me and not on top of me. It’s been a real awakening. Good luck to all of you. Don’t psyche yourself out.

Sorry but not everyone is a soulmate. We are interconnected but that disregards the importance of soulmates. A false twin flame would also not last a few days, a false twin will last YEARS of your life. If the false twin is the next most important relationship to your true twin then how would it only last a few days?


I am in an on-off emotional and partly physical relationship with my Twin. There is an obsessive side to it for both of us, but also unconditional love. The eye contact is crazy. I have never been able to look someone in the eye like that before. And our chakras, which are connected in several places, always calm down when we are together. When apart there is intense pull. We experience the pull in different chakras. There are/were other relationships involved and sometimes I find myself overthinking the True/False Twin dilemma. I’m the head person, she the heart person. Any thoughts?


i met my false twin in 2018..the connection lasted for about a year before I made an exit plan since it was draining me of my energy rather than uplifting me. my emotions went out of my control .i didn’t want to feel that way as I could see the person was a bad human being. It was more of a karmic connection since I was crying every day. it drove me crazy since the depth of connection was only felt by me. and on an intellectual level also I didn’t want that person in my life as he was nowhere close to a gentleman. to get over the separation, I learnt and practised meditation techniques(it was designed to activate the ajna chakra or the third eye) and it helped me a lot to regain my mental peace and focus.

Does every twin flame have a false twin before meeting their real twin? And does every false twin have a real twin. If I were the false twin would I have a real twin? Or am I just the catalyst for the person I am with before they meet their twin? I think many people would like an answer to this.
