In recent years, the term “Twin Flames” has grown very popular. But, what is the real meaning of Twin Flames? Often misunderstood and confused with the concept of a soulmate, a Twin Flame represents a unique and profound connection that goes beyond the ordinary bonds we form with others. There are many sources of information that may still mistake Twin Flames with a soulmate relationship, however these are two different kinds of relationships.
If you're new to the world of Twin Flames don’t fret, this blog is here to guide you on your journey. We will also be sharing with you tools that guarantee you your Twin Flame Union.
Twin Flames: Their Meaning and Profound Connection
Let us start from the beginning: Twin Flames are not just another romantic relationship for Twin Flames share a deep, spiritual bond together. They are created from the same soul “blue-print”. Sharing this same soul blue-print is only possible between Twin Flames. No one else can share this with you, because only your Twin Flame has been created to be with you eternally. Their purpose is to help you ascend into your perfect state of being. It is meant to assist you in the process of becoming who you truly are at your core.
Your Twin Flame is, therefore, not only your eternal companion, they are also your Ultimate Lover. As such, they will also be acting as your perfect mirror. A mirror to your own thoughts, feelings and beliefs about yourself and the world. The purpose of this is to help you identify where you aren’t in alignment with unconditional love. By doing this, you may release these false beliefs about yourself, and instead, see yourself for who you truly are.
Signs of a Twin Flame Connection
There are many signs that you are in a Twin Flame connection. The first one being that you are here, reading this blog.
If you are someone who is not interested at all about finding their Ultimate Lover, you wouldn’t be here. However, this is not the only sign. Here are some of the most common Twin Flame signs, to help you identify whether you are in a Twin Flame connection, or not.
1. Instant Magnetism: The moment you encounter your Twin Flame, you feel this inexplicable pull towards each other. It is as if the universe is conspiring to bring you together, no matter what you do, or where you go. This is even more so, when you are choosing to heal your emotional wounds. Even if you are trying to “get rid of them”, your Twin Flame will continue to show up in your life.
2. Intense Synchronicities: As you wake to the Twin Flame journey, you often experience a series of synchronicities. These can vary from one person to the other, but everyone agrees on one thing: you frequently encounter each other in unexpected places, and/or you start seeing repeated numbers such as 11:11; 333, among many others.
3. Healing and Growth: Upon meeting your Twin Flame, you soon realize there are things you would like to change in your life. This is due to the connection between you, which will trigger upsets -or even traumas- you didn’t remember were there. Twin Flames are meant to help each other heal from past wounds and old relationship experiences, so they serve as a catalyst. They are meant to awaken you to your healing, inviting you to confront unresolved issues within yourself. This will, in turn, bring you closer to your Twin Flame as you address these past wounds and learn to love yourself unconditionally there.
4. Telepathic Communication: Twin Flame telepathy is also one of the most common signs. This is because Twin Flames are always connected to each other through their heart space. It is the place in which you are both already One. And, since you are One, this means you share the same one consciousness. It is from this place inside of you that you can communicate without words, understanding each other on a deep, emotional -and even intuitive- level.
5. Challenging, yes. Unbreakable, no: Unlike with a soulmate relationship, you and your Twin Flame will face significant challenges. However, these are not there to break your Union, but to make it stronger. Perhaps you feel like you have to hide things for the relationship to work, like you would with a soulmate. But this only pushes you further away from your Twin Flame. Unlike any other relationship, challenges will test your bond. Does the connection remain unbreakable? Does my Twin Flame love me unconditionally? Remember, these challenges are never here to break you up, but rather, to bring you closer together.
Differences Between Twin Flames and Soulmates
Twin Flames and soulmates are often used interchangeably, but they represent very different types of relationships. Here are some of the biggest differences between the two of them:
1. Purpose of the Relationship:
- Twin Flames: The primary purpose of your Twin Flame connection is to assist you in your spiritual growth and ascension.
- Soulmates: Soulmates, on the other hand, come into our lives to provide support, guidance, and companionship. And, although they will help you learn some of your spiritual lessons, these lessons can also be learned and healed with your Twin Flame.
2. Intensity of the Connection:
- Twin Flames: The Twin Flame connection is deep. This is because you are One being, experiencing itself through two individuals. However, this illusion of being two separate people isn’t true. You and your Twin Flame share a profound and unshakeable connection, that no illusion can ever break.
- Soulmates: While soulmate connections are also profound, they are usually less intense than the bond between Twin Flames. They are also not meant to share your eternal life with you. Unlike your Twin Flame, who will be there with you eternally, a soulmate will only be part of your life for a limited amount of time.
3. Completion vs. Companionship:
- Twin Flames are complementary. They are designed to portrait the Union that exists with all things. This Oneness is already there, waiting for you to discover it.
- Soulmates, on the other hand, can feel more like a kindred spirit. Someone you feel good about, and with whom you may share some interests. They may also bring companionship, however the connection between you and them can only grow so far until you both walk on your separate ways.
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.
Embracing how your Journey unfolds
While the Twin Flame journey is unique to each person, there are some things you can do that can guarantee your success, especially during the times when challenges arise. These steps have brought success to many couples -ourselves included- who, now, enjoy building a life together with their Twin Flames.
The steps are:
1. Make the choice. This is the first step towards being with your Twin Flame. And it is an important one, because without it, you will not take any steps towards being with your Twin Flame.
2. Find a community of like-minded people who understand what you are going through. Sharing your experiences with others certainly helps you to feel like you are not alone in your process.
3. Find the right tools. Having the appropriate resources does make a difference when looking to reunite with your Twin Flame. It also helps navigate the challenges together in a much easier way than not having any kind of support. Be assertive on who you choose to rely on this journey, as not everyone understands the Twin Flame dynamic correctly. An easy way to assert if a source is good is to ask yourself: are they talking from a place of union or separation?
4. Persist and be consistent with your choice. As you do, you will continue moving forward and closer to your Twin Flame. Know that you can only lose if you give up.
5. Invest. Receiving support on this journey can not be stressed enough. This is a journey to self-love and healing. It will take you to places within yourself you may not yet feel like you can face them alone. You are not meant to. You are meant to walk home to your Twin Flame in the company of others as well. Choose to invest in your support system, as it will save you time and energy, and will guarantee your success.
