For those who are new to the concept, a Twin Flame connection can be both fascinating and also perplexing. This is because Twin Flame relationships follow a different set of rules.
While relationships in general are learning experiences, Twin Flames are designed to help each other grow in a wonderful and profound way. They are meant to take us into a path of self-discovery and unconditional love.
Twin Flames: What are they?
Twin Flames are created from the same soul-blueprint. It is a soul capable of experiencing itself through 2 (two) different bodies. One incarnating the Masculine principle, the other, the Feminine principle. The Union of both resembles the Union of all of Creation.
Twin Flames are the Universe’s answer to a deep desire to have an eternal lover. Someone with whom we can venture into our experiences without ever having to part ways from one another.
The concept of Twin Flames traces back to ancient spiritual teachings, but only recently it has gained popularity. To this day, there is still a lot of confusion about what Twin Flame relationships are really all about. Many still think of Twin Flame relationships as soulmate relationships, but they are not the same. So, how can we tell one from the other?
Twin Flame or Soulmate?
As we shared previously, Twin Flames are born from the same one soul. Therefore, the bond shared in a Twin Flame relationship is unbreakable, and it can only be shared between Twin Flames. Only your Twin Flame can complement you perfectly, in every single aspect of your life, because they are designed to be your Ultimate perfect partner. The primary purpose is to assist you in your spiritual growth and ascension. They are designed to embody the Union that exists within all things. This Oneness is already there, waiting for you to discover it.
On the other hand, soulmates can go from a close friend to a family member. They are meant to walk beside you on your journey, but only until a certain point. They are not designed to grow and go deeper in a relationship like your Twin Flame is.
While soulmates and Twin Flames connections may feel similar, at their core they are very different. It is safe to explore these relationships to get clear on what you want and whether this person is, in fact, your true Twin Flame, or just someone you feel a deep affinity with.
Sings that you may be in a Twin Flame Relationship
One of the most asked questions is: how do I know if I am with my Twin Flame, or a soulmate? This has people rushing through the Internet in search of answers, which aren’t always very helpful. So, here is how you can know if you are in a Twin Flame relationship, or, in a soulmate one.
Intense Magnetism and Mirroring
Twin Flames can’t resist each other. They are drawn to one another like magnets. Even when you don’t want to be with this person, you find them coming closer to you the more you heal your emotional wounds. This attraction is not just on a physical one, but an emotional and spiritual one. And it goes beyond appearances.
I once had a client telling me that it didn’t matter how much she tried to push this man away, the more she healed, the more he came closer to her. Today, they enjoy being together as Twin Flames and living a shared life as One. And to be honest, that was me with Paco, too, at the beginning. Once we healed through that “lump” on our journey, we were able to enjoy our Union, and we continue to.
A Journey of Self-Discovery
While many relationships may be focused on companionship and personal fulfilment, a Twin Flame relationship is primarily about self-discovery and spiritual evolution. This is your Twin Flame’s primary purpose. Meeting your Twin Flame means you are ready to take on the journey back to yourself as a Divine being. One that has been created to experience love in any possible way. This process though challenging it is liberating, it not only brings your Twin Flame, it also brings you back to yourself.
Unconditional Love and Acceptance
A Twin Flame relationship is all about unconditional love and unconditional self-acceptance. This kind of love does not come from external circumstances or the actions of other people. It comes, first and foremost, from within yourself. And this is what your Twin Flame is here to teach you.
The Mirror Effect in a Twin Flame Relationship
How? How does your Twin Flame help you to cultivate this self love and acceptance? Easy, by holding the mirror for you. That way, you can find the places within you where you aren’t yet experiencing that kind of love.
Twin Flames mirror each other’s choices of love, but also, not love. They help you address any unresolved issues of fear you may still have in regards to love. By doing this, they help you heal and feel safe in tearing down the walls you have built against love. The more you choose to heal, the easier it will be for you to feel good about having your Twin Flame in your life.
What is better, a Twin Flame or a soulmate relationship?
As always, it all depends on what you desire, on what it is that you are looking for. If you truly desire a relationship that is fulfilling in every way. A relationship that always continues to grow and go deeper into love, then you want your Twin Flame. Only your Twin Flame will meet your every need and complement you in every way. Only your Twin Flame relationship is the one that will grant you the space to be your true authentic self. So, if you are seeking for a life partner that will absolutely LOVES every aspect of you, look no more, and begin taking the steps towards having the loving relationship you have always desired.
