There tends to be some confusion about what a Twin Flame connection actually is.
I recently received a download bringing clarity around this connection. “Soul mates,” are our spiritual family. Twin flames on the other hand are our perfect mirrors, because they are actually the other half of our wholeness.
A twin flame experience is created when one soul splits into two individual beings as it enters the realm. That soul then goes and lives its own life, has its own experiences, learns its own lessons, while simultaneously being drawn back to its wholeness that is the other half of itself (red string theory).
Relationships between Twin Flames tend to be on-again-off-again, they are
intensely passionate and at some point will be intensely painful. The reflection aspect that exists between the two triggers one another into healing.
Twin Flames help us awaken like nobody else, ultimately their purpose is to show us who we truly are. Not everyone is ever ready for the intensity in which this reality entails. Patience, vulnerability and an openness to see your reflection is vital.
Not all Twin Flames are romantic, I’ve personally witnessed Twin Flame siblings.
Here are some signs that you’ve involved with your Twin Flame:
You are intensely drawn to each other.
It may even be difficult to explain, you just feel as though you’ve known this
person forever, even if you just met.
You open eachother up to a completely new way of thinking.
You’ve “awakened” because of their love. With them, you exchange ideas, beliefs,
theories and so on.
You tend to come in and out of eachothers lives.
Despite the fact that you love each other more than anything, one of you is the “runner”
and seems to not be able to handle it, so they dissolve the relationship. It’s as though
your connection is too intense to be together consistently.
They feel like home.
You immediately sense that you’ve known this person before.
Your connection is too intense for you to have just been strangers.
You are the epitome of yin and yang.
They seem just like your other half, the parts of you that were missing all along.
What you don’t realize is that they are actually the parts of you, you haven’t met yet.
It’s no wonder you feel “completed” with this person.
Looking back, you see that the period of time
right after you’re with them is always defined by change.
They bring about intense transformation. Like “rip your heart out,
smash it into a million pieces and put it back together, properly” kind of intense.
You will find yourself becoming irrationally emotional when you’re with them.
These feelings and energies are those that have been suppressed,
they are there to help you recognize what needs to heal.
Your bond is instantaneous, and your relationship moves very quickly.
You “click” immediately, as though you’ve known each other forever.
This bond only grows over time and the more you get to know about them,
the more in love you find yourself.
You have an incredible passion for this person,
as well as an equal amount of worry and uncertainty.
You may find yourself questioning EVERYTHING!!
Asking yourself whether or not this is really love,
or really what you want for your life. As you are falling in love
with your Twin Flame you are simultaneously falling in love
with yourself. So, it makes sense that as we heal, we also
experience that ‘self worth hesitation’.
Remember you deserve this connection, this love, this wholeness.
It seems like you have this profound connection that must be destined,
but you come into one another’s life at the wrong time, or something
else stands in the way of you being together.
This is not due to ill fate, rather, it is a sign that you’re not meant to be together,
in the way you think, you should. Divine timing is in charge!!
You are more than just lovers.
You are each other’s teacher, best friend, therapist and so on.
You have such a deep and layered connection that you do a lot
more for one another than just be romantic.
Your relationship can be tumultuous at times.
Your Twin Flame serves to show you everything within you, that needs healing.
This is not to be confused with “love” being painful. Love is not painful.
However, everything that stands in the way, can be, though.
One of you is more “spiritual” than the other.
One is more soulful, the other more practical. You teach each other
“the raw version” of how you think and behave – that is part of your purpose.
You feel very attuned to them
You can feel what they’re feeling, know what they’re thinking.
It’s as though you are one. This is why Self Awareness is so important,
being able to decipher ‘whose stuff is who’s’ will serve you both,
more than you could ever imagine.
When you look into their eyes, you feel like you see family
This is your soul recognizing someone it’s known before or someone it’s very close to.
For as different as you are, you have many similarities.
It may seem like you have similar “struggle stories”. Complete opposite lifestyle situations but the lessons’ and essential pivots were so divine that it’s almost as though they were contrived to lead you to one another. One or two things could just be coincidence but with a twin flame, you’ll probably have many overlapping similarities.
They show you, what you desire most, as well as what you fear the most.
Their purpose is not (and has never been) to make you feel “settled” or comfortable
but instead to help introduce you to yourself. It’s almost as though they trigger you,
Self awareness and vulnerability have been absolutely vital in navigating my own Twin Flame connection.
Self Awareness allows us the opportunity to understand the true dynamics at play, when we know exactly what we bring to the table, it gives us a perspective advantage, an advantage that allows us to be helpful and compassionate, rather than triggered.
