I was introduced to the word ‘Twin Flame’ some years ago.
It took me plenty of reading and effort to understand the concept of Twin Flames.
Once the concept was understood, I realised that despite not being aware of the terminology, I had been living the Twin Flame journey for several years.
The concept of Twin Flames may seem ‘woo-woo’ but when you look closely, you will see that the Twin Flame journey is deeply enriching and spiritual. The terminology may seem other worldly but the phenomenon itself is not. A lot of people experience the Twin Flame dynamic in their relationships. When you recognise this dynamic as an opportunity to elevate your relationship to a higher level, you begin to live the Twin Flame journey consciously.
My understanding of Twin Flames is this-
A Twin Flame is a soul whose energy feels closest to your own, yet is different – much like twin babies in the womb who are deeply connected yet have individual identities.
A Twin Flame partnership is very often romantic, though it can also be non-romantic.
If you’ve ever had the feeling that there was someone out there whose presence you could feel deeply but who you hadn’t yet met physically, it could very likely be your Twin Flame you were connecting to.
When you look into the eyes of your Twin Flame for the first time, you feel instant recognition and a sense of coming home. The Light in their eyes feels very familiar.
You feel very safe with your Twin Flame – physically and emotionally. It feels comfortable to be who you are and to reveal your authentic self to your Twin Flame.
Your Twin Flame is your opposite in many ways but you share similar core values. Your differences act as teachers. They help you embody the opposite energy and to achieve greater wholeness. You become living embodiments of the Yin and Yang.
Very often, it can seem like the contrast presented by your differences may push you apart. And in several cases, the clashing of energies could result in periods of physical or emotional separation. However, despite encountering rough territory, love manages to prevail. And when both of you are able to recognise the love that glues you together, your differences fade into the background.
Twin Flames are mentors in unconditional love to one another. Unconditional love may come more easily to one twin and the power of that love helps transform the other twin. Eventually, both become embodiments of unconditional love. Once the relationship reaches this stage, nothing can ever shake it again.
When you meet your Twin Flame, you may discover that the challenges you faced in previous relationships (romantic and non-romantic) helped set the stage for one of the highest and most rewarding relationships you would ever have – the one with your Twin Flame. The reward of experiencing a higher and deeper love feels well worth all the struggle.
Your Twin Flame acts as a mirror and shows you everything about yourself that you don’t like to see. He or she can bring out the worst in you. But this gives you an opportunity to clear out muck buried under the carpet of your subconscious and free yourself. The Twin Flame triggers profound inner growth and evolution.
Your Twin Flame can also bring out the best in you. By constantly challenging you on different levels, yet loving you for who you are, he or she creates a perfect environment for you to blossom to your highest potential.
Your Twin Flame acts as your healer. Their unconditional love helps heal some of your deepest wounds – mental, emotional and in some cases, even sexual wounds (of the psyche).
None of what I have shared about Twin Flames is set in stone. When I understood the concept of Twin Flames and traced my own journey, I saw that it had unfolded in accordance with everything I had learnt. And this learning is what I share here.
These pointers are meant to help you understand the potential of a Twin Flame partnership and to recognise it if this is part of your journey. Even if you don’t believe in the idea of Twin Flames, you may find some value in the concept and apply it to better your significant relationships and elevate them to a higher level.
