Currently, 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.
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 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 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
One 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.
Accept 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!
