Ever met someone who set your soul on fire? Or someone that catches your eye and you just know, they are special? Well, this is what I call a twin flame.
What happens is when people meet who are connected on the soul level, it’s like two puzzle pieces finally finding each other after searching for so long. At first glance or even after talking for some time you can feel an instant connection with them; it feels like you have known them all of your life. There is no awkwardness or uncertainty, everything feels natural and flows well between both of you.
Maybe something really cool happened like sharing the same thoughts at exactly the same time or feeling an overwhelming sense of peace when seeing them again even if it’s been years since you last talked.
Something that is also very common is to feel like the other person is more of a mirror, they reflect you and your actions back to you. It can be challenging at times because it may show some behaviors within yourself that you are not happy about or would like to change, but don’t worry, this can all be used for our highest good.
What is a Twin Flame?
Now, I know what you’re thinking… So, twin flames are like soulmates? Yes and no. A twin flame connection is definitely something very special, but it’s not exactly the same as a soulmate connection. Here are some differences between the two:
Twin Flame or Soulmate Connection?
Soulmates are chosen by us before we incarnate into this world to be our guides, teachers, and best friends who help us grow spiritually. They have other purposes too which I will go over in another article.
Twin Flames on the other hand are people that we have met before many times throughout many lifetimes that also happen to be on the same spiritual path as you. These connections happen more for healing past wounds within yourself; they are also your teachers in this lifetime.
Soulmates come in many forms but generally, you will find that Soulmate relationships are mutual and balanced whereas Twin Flame relationships tend to be more one-sided (for example the male twin flame and female twin flame). Generally speaking though, the roles can switch.
These relationships are different from ordinary friendships because there is an intense feeling of connection which is very hard to explain unless experienced first-hand. At times these connections may feel like a burden due to their intensity, but they are here to teach us about unconditional love, compassion, and forgiveness. I have found that without experiencing difficult challenges within these connections it’s difficult to understand certain aspects of ourselves that need healing. Some people seem to have many twin flames throughout their life, whereas others have just one.
Twin Flame Connections are also more powerful than Soulmate relationships because there is something extremely special between twins which will last forever. When they separate it does not mean that they are lost to each other, on the contrary- you will find them again when you need them the most.
Generally speaking though, some people are disconnected from their twin flame due to certain beliefs or attachments (e.g I deserve better). This is like cutting yourself off from part of your soul! If this happens then it is likely that only one twin will reincarnate into this world and they often end up meeting many times before they finally unite together for good. Many twins seek comfort within relationships outside of their twin flame connection in order to fill the hole that has been created. Related: What Is Numerology and How To Use It
How can you tell if you’ve found your Twin Flame?
Knowing how to recognize what a twin flame is can help us on an inner level as well as with relationships in day-to-day life. It helps you let go of people who are not meant for you and brings an awareness of new possibilities into your life. So here are 5 ways that will help you tell if someone might be your soulmate/twin flame:
1. INSTANT CONNECTION: As mentioned before, when you meet your twin flame there is an instant connection. It’s like all the barriers between you have suddenly disappeared and you can just be yourself.
2. ONENESS/ MIRRORING: Another common characteristic is that they reflect you back to yourself. They may show you behaviors or aspects of yourself that you are not happy with but it is a powerful way to see yourself more clearly.
3. SIMILARITIES: Not only do twin flames have an instant connection but they also share many similarities. This could be interests, thoughts, feelings, etc.
4. COMFORT: Twin flames provide a sense of comfort and ease. It’s like being home.
5. URGENCY: Often times there is a sense of urgency or importance to connect with your twin flame. This is because they play an important role in your journey and soul evolution.
If you are feeling drawn to someone and all of these signs resonate with you then it is likely that you have found your twin flame. Enjoy the journey! <3
