The Difference Between Soul Mates and Twin Flames

This article is taken from The Spirit Science website.

twin_flame_connectionCurrently, the understanding of a twin flame and a soul mate are being used interchangeably. Giving the notion, that there isn’t an inherent difference between a soul mate relationship and a twin flame union. But as we raise our vibration and increase our conscious awareness, we begin to see the major differences between soul mates and twin flames.

This understanding would not have been previously available to us in the last two decades and it is only because of this evolution of consciousness, that we see the difference between the two connections.

Soul Mates

A soul mate is someone who is in harmony with you. Someone who resonates with your own energy and someone you create with.
Soul mates are known to be from different soul groups, allowing for tremendous growth. They can serve as heart center catalysts to open you up and assist you in your ascension process and will assist you in your souls spiritual evolution.

Soul mate relationships have the primary purpose to further learning by adopting new traits, sharing and growing together in love and harmony.

A soul mate is united to you when you reach the point of maturity, where you are ready to enter into a real and true relationship of the soul.

Twin Flames

TwinSoul4Twin flames are a much different story, and we are seeing more and more twin flames reigniting; coming together again, for their own very special and unique purpose.

There are only a small number of twin flames who have incarnated here on the planet, and their missions were set before their arrival.

Standing together, masculine and feminine energies, separated, but were once as one. Twin flames are from the same soul group and have the same energetic blue print. The yin to your yang and the dark to your light.

Your twin flame is YOU.

The Stages of a Twin Flame Union

Upon first contact with your twin flame, you may feel a familiarity between you as if looking at yourself in the mirror. Yet, it is only your subconscious, your higher self, that knows the truth and until you have danced the twin flame dance, you may remain unaware.

The Dance

The dance begins with fireworks, playfulness and immense creativity, reverberating back and forth between the two of you as you explore each others energy. Your energy, the familiar yet unfamiliar radiance shared.

Through this connection the meaning of love and understanding reaches new heights that you didn’t even think were possible. Exploring, sharing laughing and enjoying this bubble love.

Yet, soon before you are even ready for it, the bubble bursts. Leaving one broken-hearted and the other confused.

Runner and the Chaser

twin-flame-telepathic-connectionOne twin will run, unable to handle the energy, unable to face the partner any longer because what the twin sees, is himself in the face of another. An independent pair, yet a single being mirrored.

Harsh and immediate separation is sure to follow as they both plummet into the dreaded Dark Night of The Soul, where grief and sorrow await.

A deep healing is needed for both twins and once the separation has taken place it deals death to the soul.
Sending the twins down the path of enlightenment, ascension and much-needed healing.

Each twin learns that they are already whole, no longer needing or wanting the affection of the other in order to feel whole. Yet, until this realization and acceptance, the twins will remain separate to balance their own masculine and feminine energies.

During this separation the twins may share visions, dreams and prophecies. As well as unexplained synchronicities, giving much-needed guidance and assurance.

What’s Meant to Be Will Be

Letting go, is the key to reuniting with your twin.

angelic-ascension-merkaba-lightbodyAccept that everything is exactly as it should be and in time, you will reflect back upon this feeling of separation and understand why it needed to happen.

By establishing your own strength and confidence, you make yourself whole. No one can ever complete you, you are already complete. Do not search outside of yourself, everything you need is already within you.

In this search, you will find a knowing that physical separation is merely an illusion. You are never separate.  For you two, who are one, are never really apart. So have faith!

“Your present situation is not your final destination, the best is yet to come!”

Healing Our Union

Since our separation began earlier this year, the Divine Feminine has journeyed through some tough terrain.  Initially, the pain felt so intense that it felt unbearable.  Spirit guided information and wisdom to reveal itself so that the essential healing could begin to take place.  The healing that is essential not just for each twin, but also for the Union itself.

Realisations have occurred to unlearn relationship traditions and misperceptions about love.  The awakening has been like a new birth of understanding and opening within like a new flower blooming, a caterpillar emerging from the chrysalis and into a butterfly.  The apparent pain and trauma, surfaced the childhood wounds that were lying dormant, waiting for the much needed catalyst to burst open the wound for a deeper level of healing.  A more lasting sense of completion and healing to take place.

2016 has been a tough year for many people, but in particular for those who have identified they are connected to their twin.  for twins who have already connected in 3d physical and experiencing a separation, this year has been one of transformation, intuition, healing and completion.  Stepping into the Mission in a bigger way required wisdom, willingness, clearing and a new template to be learned.  Removing the old patterns meant that some Growing pains were felt and some resistance made the learning that much tougher.

Relaxing into the newness of the Love discovery, meant that the Divine Feminine could lead the healing for both twins.  The Divine Feminine within connected and reunited with the Divine Masculine within.  thus making it more concievable that the Union could once again reconcile. 

The learning showed that the desired reconciliation was not merely about the reconciliation with the other.  The reconciliation was mainly about the reuniting of the fragmented self, broken from before physical birth in this lifetime and then from the childhood wounds, piled up with the wounds from school, employment, relationships and other experiences that created a sense of brokenness. 

The recognition of self, the identification of the real self began a healing of mammoth proportions unexpected and unprepared for.  Spirit guided the healing.  spirit guided the information.  Spirit guided the connection to others who are on a similar journey.  The connection with others has helped heal the Aloneness created in a world where the Twin Flame Union is misunderstood and overrepresented by a community which at times feels like a bandwagon.  Those on it, perhaps not truly in Twin Flame Union. 

True Guides, Teachers and Healers have stood the test of time and have continued to uplift, inspire, support and help heal the Separation.  Providing Twins with information and guidance to help them to continue and not give up,  especially at times when it felt impossible and futile.

The gratitude felt by the Divine Feminine is so immense for these Brave Dear Beloveds, who tirelessly give their services with compassion and empathy.  Without those who have walked the path and shared their stories so others can feel connection, it would have been additionally difficult to get to a place of relaxation and awareness of what this journey has truly been about.

Healing the Soul of the World is the Mission declared by the Divine Feminine and the one who writes this message.  The Divine Masculine has shied away from the Mission and it is understandable, as it is a huge undertaking for anyone who relates to being Human.   The Higher Self, The True Self, The Divine Being that the Divine Masculine is, recognises the fear he feels.  He has requested time to be alone.  He communicated it poorly and sent the Divine Feminine into a Tailspin that created a whirlwind of emotion to surface. 

At first seeming like the end of her world, eventually becoming an opportunity for emotional healing and transformation to take place.  it now feels like a new space of life has emerged and new wonder has spoken to her heart.  Her curiosity and love for her Twin has resurfaced and she feels a strong connection with him that only she can understand, even at times when she doesn’t understand.  Her Soul knows.  It is true.  They are meant to be together.  The messages point to them reuniting.  They have shared many lifetimes.  They acknowledged this information during their first few years of being together in this physical reality.  They acknowledged their Mission with each other during Soul and Heart to Heart talks. 

Their feeling of Oneness brought them closer and closer to each other, yet the enormity of their Union’s Purpose, was what broke them apart.  It had to be this way.  It was always going to happen.  It was Divinely orchestrated to demonstrate the strength of their Love.  The Divine Feminine reached out many times to check in to see if the Divine Masculine was ready to reunite.  Her frustration at times made her feel doubt about their Union.  His shutting her out made her feel like he no longer wanted her in his life and made her feel desperately alone.  But Spirit brought others into her circle, so she could feel the support of Angels around her.  these Beings of Light taught her that even while separated from her Twin, others were there who needed her to be strong.  Others were there to help lift her spirit when it felt weak and hopeless.

The chance for Reunion is only over when the Twins completely give up.  The loss to each Soul is felt by the Collective.  The Collective reaches out and shares even more new information to support and uplift the Twin who is doing the work to heal the Union.  As one heals, the other heals.  As both heal the Collective heals.  As the Collective heals, humanity heals.

We are here for each other.  Never Give Up!



lakeandmountainsMeditate.  Heal.  Go Within.

Wisdom received many years ago.  Practiced yet not fully experienced.  Stepping into once again.  Darkness becomes light.

Soul path.  Soul journey.  Meeting friends along the way who connect in ways others do not.  Opening to receive, can be joyful, can also be painful.  Being present, words used a great deal in these times of awakening, more to be said about that than can never be fully appreciated until actually accomplished.

Sitting still.  Fidgeting.  Frustrated with self and unable to calm the busy mind.  Beating self up mentally and emotionally.  Prevents the love from within to radiate around.  Calmness ensues eventually, once the mind can be quietened.


Button mushrooms.  Oh, that got your attention.  Yes, it’s not when everything is going swimmingly that you transform.  It is when things happen out of the blue, unexpectedly.  Not to run away from.  To walk towards and become friends with.

Jesus spoke about loving everyone.  How easy it is to love those who are nice and kind to you.  But those who irritate you and create tension, frustration and irksomeness, they are the ones who challenge your love.  This is when you realise the greatness of Love.

Listening to wise ones, helps you when you’re someone who is seeking answers.  Listening and reading books that provide stories and information of true transformation and loveing acceptance.  Also, sitting still and listening to Soul speak softly to you.  This information can become your source of inspiration.

When you allow yourself the time and space to hear this information, then take the action you’ve been inspired to take.  Then you will fully experience the true magnificence of the Higher Realms.

You know they are there.  You know the truth speaks to you from this place.  Yet, you avoid it.  You stay away from it.  It can’t be this easy surely.  To sit still.  Breathe.  Relax and listen.  Surely not.  This was not what we were brought up to believe.  We were brought up to believe we must work hard, be diligent and struggle.

Yet.  When allowing takes place and a calm ensues. You are free.  You are You.






Beginning the Journey Back

Initially the separation felt all encompassing.  Engulfed in pain and grief.  This moment of feeling the end had occured, brought such feelings of intensity and that all hope was gone.

Over the next few weeks, a sense of calm began to emerge and a keen desire to make sense of what had happened.  This can’t be it!  This doesn’t feel true.  Connected a knowing.  A deep feeling of knowing that there was more.  More to uncover.  More to discover.  More to experience.   More Healing.  More Love.

tree.walkingThis new born desire opened up something buried deep within.  Hidden from self and most certainly hidden from others.  A fear of realising the mission.  Taking on the challenge of a lifetime, indeed of many lifetimes. Discussed only with the Twin.

The mission must happen in this lifetime.  We have tried before and failed.  We made an agreement that we would see it through this time.  Each lifetime we have met.  Each lifetime we have connected.  But each time we have walked away.  Feeling that the mission was too much to cope with.

We decided that this time, we would see it through and then return to our spiritual selves.  No longer needing to incarnate in the physical realm.

We began to observe evidence of the spiritual support all around us.  When we were close to each other we would witness unexplainable events.  The Excitement.  The Joy.  The Love.  The Wonder!

Open so much to our Union.  To the magic of being together and knowing this time we would complete what we were here to do so many lifetimes ago.

Walks in nature helped deepen our awakening.  Our connection.

Laughing.  Talking.  Delving Deep into our selves and each other.  A journey of immense discovery of the true nature of love.  One that felt difficult to explain to others.  However, demonstrated by being ourselves.  Others felt it.  They saw it.

Separation has provided a space for both to heal.

Healing is taking place.  As one heals.  So the other heals.  As both heal so the world heals.

When not together, where does the Love go?

It continues.  It grows.  It deepens and it strengthens.

Remember Beloved.  Remember.
