Soul Mates & Twin Flames

Soul Mates and Twin Flames are common buzz words in New Age circles.

While there are varied definitions to these terms, the most commonly accepted ones are-

Soul Mates are souls with whom we share a warm and loving relationship. These relationships are generally smooth and easy and help partners grow together in joy. Soul Mates may share common interests and bond through their similarities. There is a deep understanding between partners and the relationship is most often peaceful.

Twin Flame relationships are also based on love but it isn’t the kind of love that comes easy. It is love that must manage to stay alive through challenges. This is seen as a more intense relationship in which partners act as triggers and mirrors to each other. If you share a close relationship with someone who triggers you in areas you are most sensitive about and also mirrors back to you your vulnerabilities, they could be labeled a ‘Twin Flame.’ The relationship is based on strong attraction and great tension at the same time!

On the surface, it can seem like twin flame partners are very different from one another, almost opposites one could say. But if they can manage to bring their opposing forces together, it can give birth to a whole new paradigm; a paradigm in which their seemingly opposing energies transform into one complementary force. This combined energy holds the potential for deeper growth and evolution within the partnership.

The Twin Flame relationship is seen as a roller coaster ride that has the potential to crash yet manages to go steady and eventually witnesses the blossoming of unconditional love.

Soul Mates and Twin Flames can also be non-romantic partnerships, such as those we share with parents, siblings, friends or co-workers. However, very often, they are romantic in nature. It is a known fact that the people we are most intimate with are also the ones we are more likely to clash with!

At times, soul mate and twin flame partnerships can also serve a larger purpose, meaning their growth together proves to be rewarding not just to their relationship but also to many others in the world.

It is important to note that the concepts of Soul Mates and Twin Flames are fluid. They represent the dynamic of a relationship and are not static labels that define a relationship. A given relationship can be based on the soul mate dynamic at times and the twin flame dynamic at other times. However, it may lean more towards one or the other dynamic.

These labels are meant to help us understand the energy dynamics that may be playing out in our partnerships. It is important not to get too caught up in definitions and put the people we love in boxes. These concepts are meant to help us become aware of areas of growth and inspire us to create better quality relationships.

I trust this article will inspire you to experience a deeper connection with the Soul Mates and Twin Flames in your life!
