Twin Flames

What is a Twin Flame?

Twin flames (also called twin souls,or twin rays), are literally the other half of our soul.  We each have only one twin, and generally after being split the two went their separate ways, incarnating over and over to gather human experience before coming back together.  Ideally, this happens in both of their last lifetimes on the planet so they can ascend together.  So you probably haven't had many lifetimes with your twin.

Each twin is a complete soul, not half a soul.  It is their task to become more whole, balancing their female and male sides, and ideally become enlightened, before reuniting with their twin.  This reunion is of two complete and whole beings. All other relationships through all our lives could be said to be "practice" for the twin, the ultimate relationship.


Twin Flames

Twin flames is ourselves in another body.  When we have reached the stage where we are capable of giving unconditional love, we then have the opportunity to reconnect with our “other half” or twin flame.  The chances are that we meet our twin flame briefly in many lifetimes, but one or both of us are not ready for the intensity of this connection.  When both halves of the whole are ready to come back together and meet they will discover that in their lifetime they have lead almost parallel lives.

The events of their lives will mirror each other almost exactly.  They may have come from very similar families and family dynamics.  They may have had similar schooling or lack thereof. They may have crossed paths socially or lived close by to each other and never known it.  They may have almost identical careers.  They may even have previous marriages and divorces within weeks of each other.  When twin flames get to know each other, they will feel as if the other is reading their life script.  That isn't to say they are identical people, but they are perfectly complimentary to each other.

When twin flames meet for the first time in a physical life, they recognize themselves in the other person.  This will come as a deep surprise to both, but the recognition is immediate.  At the same time you will feel that you have always known this person who is sitting in front of you.  It is a feeling of home-coming, because you recognize your other self and feel very much that you have come home when you are with your spiritual twin flame counterpart.  Be aware that soul mates also have a strong recognition pattern, only there will be that little voice in your head that knows the difference.

When twin flames come together they become one, they are not like each other but they are the mirror image of the other.  They think alike, they hold the same values and often their life experiences are very similar.  Twin flames do not teach each other, they learn together and help each other learn the lessons that have been set before them in this lifetime.  When twin flames come together they join forces and are capable of overcoming obstacles the average mortal could not begin to face.  They are so filled with unconditional love they literally glow with it and have much to share with others.  They are the inspiration that poets write about and singers sing about.
