Part of my spiritual awakening has been encountering this twin soul type of a relationship. I just read this article which perfectly describes my experience. I’m sharing the article in case anyone else has experienced this phenomenon.
TWIN FLAMES OR TWIN SOUL MATES.
In the previous posts I have mentioned about Karmic mates and Soul mates, here I would like to enlighten you about twin flames.
Your actual twin flame is the other half of your soul, eons ago when we parted from the source (GOD) we happened to be one soul, androgynous by nature, with the same DNA blue print, having both the male and female essence ,our soul along with all the other souls in the monad, were sent to the spiritual realm so God could experience himself through the different souls , but life can be experienced only in the physical realm, so a final division took place of all the souls, where one soul split into two, and went different ways, one having a masculine energy and the other a feminine energy, the masculine energy has retained a part of the feminine essence and vice versa.
Since then we have roamed around in incomplete state, life after life in different incarnations, entangling ourselves in number of Karmic and soul mate relationships. Our soul keeps aching and craving for completion, which is fulfilled only when we meet our other half ,our Twin Flame. But for this to happen , first and foremost we have to be in relationships with various souls ,experience life in its varied form, and then we will reach a point were each one of us will have to make serious choice and commitments, and eventually balance our Karma’s, thus begins the process of growth and spiritual evolvement.
Twin flames rarely meet, because one will be in the spirit plane and the other in the physical, or may take birth in different life span, to balance their Karmic deeds ,but for some, who are on their last journey in this physical realm will ultimately meet their twin flames. Its a spiritual reunion. This relationship is purely soul based, and both the souls experience unconditional love, a sacred sense of intimacy ,and a deep desire to serve humanity at all levels .This relationship is under the protection of the divine law ,their intermingling DNA will bind them together, in a subconscious level, and woe to those who come between this pure spiritually based love relation.
But on our final journey, as ordained by the universe, and as per divine timing our twin flame will appear in our lives unexpectedly,specially when the soul has just come out of a deep physical or mental trauma, like health or financial crisis, serious emotional problems, or death of near or dear ones ,which is called “The dark night of the soul” when the twin flames incarnate, the person will not be your ideal mate, there is no love at first sight like soul mate love relations, as the recognition of twin flames is more at the soul level than the mind or heart level. they are our mirror images , they reflect all the qualities we like, similarities, and everything we dislike, its a beautiful but traumatic relationship the bond is so intense that one of the partners tries to avoid the relation ,and will run away from it, or try to block the emotions , the whole process is a difficult one, were we inflict terrible pain to our other half ,unknowingly, because we are unable to comprehend the depth of our feeling for the soul, its like living with total chaos.
The path of soul mate relation, is more peaceful and smooth, based on love and understanding, with very few differences, though there may be external obstacles , its more about personal growth. But the path of twin flames is full of thorns, a very difficult one, because they have differences, they are like mirror images equal but opposites , its more about unconditional love and spiritual growth, divine by nature.
Psychic connection and synchronicity will play a major role in the meeting of our twin flames this will intensify and become more frequent as we get closer to our other half .Its a wake up call, messengers in different form , start relaying the messages, maybe someone whom you meet will guide your path, or you may notice the name of the person being displayed on billboards, hoardings, films songs ,TV or in books, newspapers, or buses , birth dates displayed on signposts, any vehicles , mile stones ,you will find the numbers staring at you eerily from the face of the clocks , and make you aware of the divine connection, though your mind tells you to run from this connection, but your dear departed near and dear ones in the spirit world will ensure you remain there, they will guide you in dream sequences, and impress the messages in your mind till you get it, these messages can be comprehended only if you are tuned to their frequency, and in spite of this if we try to escape it, then the universe will take drastic measures, initially small troubles and difficulties will cross your path, later on harder blows will rudely awaken you to this divine connection. we have to realize that this is no ordinary relationship ,and does not adhere to ordinary laws, it is a beginning of a spiritual journey.
The stages of twin flame (TF)relations:
1) Recognition: Both the TF, will recognize each other at the soul level, but not the physical, they may find each other familiar, but will not be love at first sight romance, like soul mates.
2) Ego: In the course of their friendship, Inner conflicts will arise, which may result in external ego based fights, or one of them will romanticize the relation, and try to fit into the old model of romance and love, roses and candlelight dinners, which is far from reality.
3) Crisis: In some cases one of the TF will try to reject the other half, for various reasons ,maybe the TF is in a love relation with another soul, or is soul bound to their married partner. Sometimes past rejections or traumas will trigger dysfunctional emotional patterns, in such cases if they are not tuned to the messages from the universe they will not understand the significance of the relation, and adamantly become rigid in their views and behavior.
4) Runners and chasers: One or both the twins swill become emotionally traumatized, and shattered , flooded with deep pain from the soul level, with this physical level rejection and abandonment, they will try to withdraw physically and block all forms of connection, then one of them starts running from the other, the other twin looses their sense of equilibrium and becomes a chaser.
5) Evolvement: The runner twin will ultimately realize their mistake and become more understanding and compassionate, they make positive changes , and fully explore their life and become enlightened, the chaser twin realizes, that this is no romantic love relation, one cannot change the other twin in the mind or heart level like soul mate relation, TF relation is a soul based relationship, hence we have to make changes in our self , first, resolve all our inner emotional skeletons, like ego, anger, frustrations, depressions, fear, lack of love , etc we have to accept the other twin unconditionally without any expectations or desires, which will create a positive resonance within 0ur being which will in turn attract the identical essence in the other being.
6) Spiritual enlightenment: Both the twins will reach a stage were they will be enlightened, there is a special sacredness to the relation, they will surrender to each other, and will radiate divine love, at this point they may channel their healing and creative ability to art, music ,writing, teaching, painting, photography or any other creative field. In a way service to humanity becomes their ultimate goal.
The relationship is a honest and a transparent one, there is no game playing or manipulation, They do not compete with each other, they are not depended on each other, each soul is complete by itself, there is a electrifying feeling between them, and the two are inseparable, they accept each others strength and weakness automatically, nothing is hidden from them , they have the same vision ,there is a great sense of purpose and meaning to the relationship.
When they meet they will accomplish great things together, not only for themselves , or their family, but for the entire community, or even the world at large. they will work together for the upliftment of society , and will try to influence other souls to completion and spirituality and harness their energy together in service to others.
The direction and the outcome of the relation is surrendered to the almighty, having full faith and trust in the universe, that this union is under divine protection, and together they will unite in their final journey to the origin, that is GOD.
