Much has been written about the concept of Twin Flames, with many channeled opinions and deep beliefs in current circulation. It would seem that this is the time when the interest in this subject is rising with the reality of its manifestation. Men and women all over the world are finding themselves in situations where they meet their Twin and nothing can ever be the same again. But what is a Twin Flame?
It is said that Twin Flames, also called Twin Souls, are literally the other half of our soul. Each of the Twins is a ‘complete’ soul in and of itself; in as much as we can describe a part of the whole as being distinctly ‘complete’. But together both souls create something more.
Some believe that we each have only one Twin, from which we chose to move apart and effectively go our separate ways, incarnating over many lifetimes, generating a full spectrum of human experience and moving ever closer to expressing more love in the journey to remembering who we truly are.
It is said that there will be times, when the forces of Creation, driven by the impulse of Life to express every greater beauty and truth, conspire wonderfully to bring the Twins back together again. Such a reunion holds the promise of something amazing emerging from the power and passion that represents the potential of the Twin relationship. This reconnection of the One Soul, at a human level, involves the awareness, balance and integration of our masculine and feminine components, raising individual and joint consciousness. It is also said that the Twins come back together in their last lifetime on the Planet, so that they can ascend together.
Some characteristics of the Reunion are shared by many; such as the initial meeting being wholly unexpected and unanticipated, and in many cases unwanted. Both Twins may already be in solid committed relationships, many with family and fully established lives. Both Twins will have evolved independently, to the point of being relatively happy in themselves, and quite sure of their purpose and mission. Normally, this union tends to be between two relatively evolved souls. However, when they meet, and recognise each other, a process begins that can challenge and disrupt their lives in ways that neither could have imagined.
Traditionally, when this happened in indigenous cultures, there was an understanding of the phenomenon; and the tribe, village or community would support both families in moving towards the potential – as it was believed to be something that would eventually benefit and elevate everyone. However, in today’s society, there is oftentimes not this level of awareness and compassion, and the Twins movement towards their shared destiny is seen as fundamentally ‘bad’ and destructive.
But it must be remembered that the ultimate reality of this relationship is to explore and express Love in a way that can inspire and guide others to do the same. The experience invites and offers the Twins a profound opportunity to reach towards and make manifest a Love that knows no bounds or limits; a Love that can carry them and anyone who feels the energy, to a deeper sense of Self Love and desire to serve all of Life. It involves the generation of a shared destiny that is far greater than either Twin could realise on their own.
The most difficult part of the process can be the desire to integrate the relationship into pre-existing structures. Many times this is just not possible. One or both Twins may feel that it is all a bit too much, and collapse or retreat back into their previous lives. Other times both Twins strive courageously, and with great faith and imagination, to build a life that honours the truth of who they are to their Twin, and their very real existing commitments to their families and communities. Ultimately, this relationship is borne from Love, and it is elevated by Love. And as with so much else in the human experience, the level of difficulty and pain experienced and expressed is a perfect reflection of the level of resistance (individual and collective) to what IS, or what is meant to be.
Until quite recently, it was believed that Twin Flame couples finding each other was a very rare event on the Planet. However, there now appears to be more and more people experiencing this phenomenon, perhaps as an inevitable aspect of an apparent acceleration of spiritual awareness and general consciousness at this profound time of planetary evolution. People appear to be more and more ready for this possibility, and are preparing themselves at a soul level to manifest the opportunity.
It must be understood, that despite how the relationship might appear to others, it is primarily one that involves spiritual service to the Great Unfolding. This is the main reason for the Twins finding and reconnecting to each other, as the relationship generates a massive amount of creative energy, which is utilised not just for their own evolution but for the good of all. The Universe is orchestrating this spiritual potential, and realising it through these unions. It is a fast and very efficient remedy in the service to the rising expression of consciousness on the planet.
At a human level, where the fear, confusion and resistance tends to manifest, it is sometimes difficult to know if you have met your Twin, or if the intensity of attraction being experienced is actually due to some expression of karmic entanglement. There are no litmus tests that can be carried out to distinguish the truth of this; it comes down to the depth of feeling and the attraction at a soul and spirit level. This cannot be meaningfully shared or described to other people, and it remains a sacred secret that exists between the Twins themselves.
It is worth noting, that even if you are completely sure that you have met your Twin, there is absolutely no guarantee that one or both of you will be able to face or indeed survive the intensity of the relationship. This intensity expresses primarily at a soul level, but will reach out and affect all other aspects of our being. In such cases, the meeting may act as a catalyst for a conscious acceleration of spiritual development for one or both Twins, which may bring them closer to being able to be together at a practical level. In essence, the ability to stay together and manifest a coherent and integral life together, including the loving elevation of the families involved, depends on the strength, soul level awareness and overall commitment and service to Love.
One primary element of the the Twin Flame relationship is that your Twin knows you better than any other person in the Universe, even if you have not had much or indeed any time together in ‘real’ life. This Knowing transcends, experience, personality or habitual behavioural programming, and provides an impetus for change that is fast and furious. Anything that needs healing is healed; anything that needs letting go of, is let go. If it isn’t then the Twins know this and together they move towards its resolution, rapidly.
With many Twin Flame reunions, there may even not be a shared language, as they come from very different countries, cultures and backgrounds. Yet there is a deep similarity, or resonance, that is unmistakable in its expression and presentation. Each Twin will have their own connection to Spirit, but together it seems as if the communication is enhanced and optimised. Twins will rapidly establish and utilise a telepathic connection that is very deep and often comic in its expression. When you look at your Twin, hold them, kiss them, be with them, it is felt with the intense sensation that you have arrived HOME. Time together is like being in an oasis in the middle of a desert, or seeing the Sun after a year in darkness. All relationships up to the point of meeting served to prepare the Twins for this.
Twin Flame Love is not automatically expressed as romantic love, although there will be romantic moments. It is not merely a strong, physical sexual attraction, but that is often a fundamental component. Basically if you meet your Twin, you will begin to experience a massive internal shake up, a spiritual revolution, which initiates a greater understanding of yourself and the meaning of Divine Oneness. It is an opportunity to experience and express unconditional Love. This is the greatest gifts being offered by this relationship.
At a human level, the Twin Flame relationship is a forge of heart activity and continuous spiritual, emotional, mental and physical testing. Both parties will simultaneously offer the other a chance to let go of old patterns and programs that limit love, and to move towards greater love in all aspects of their lives. There will be little or no manipulation, as the other feels this intimately and shuts it down immediately. Your Twin invites you to look into the crystal clear mirror of beauty and truth, to see yourself as you really are, and at the same time holds that vision for you, without condition, doubt or hesitation.
This relationship is rarely ‘easy’, and will continue to confound and confuse, evoking fear and doubt, and will spread out like a virus (not automatically a bad thing…) infecting and affecting all others in the orbit of this Binary (Twin) Star system. It will challenge everyone on every level. It will push each Twin to integrate their masculine and feminine, and to move towards greater self love; the stepping stone to true unconditional Love. This potential offers the possibility of a love that will endure beyond space and time. There really is no choice. It is the beautiful truth. It is the Beauty and the Truth combined, expressing as Love.
A final word of gentle caution is offered here. As more people become aware of the Twin Flame concept, there is an understandable increase in their desire to experience such a union. This can rapidly become an obsession, creating a massive imbalance in our lives and the lives of our friends and families. We begin to look at everyone we meet, and judge or gauge the meeting relative to this singular vision or dream, which in effect can not just limit our learning that is meant to be derived from these relationships, but can also push away the very experience we are seeking.
We need to surrender such thinking, trust in the ‘Plan’, and feel gratitude for the very simple yet profound gift of just being alive in this very rich time. Even if we feel and are convinced that we have met our Twin, what does it really matter? That is to say, what difference does it make, in human terms? The relationship, regardless of its ‘title’ or marketed packaging, will still provide ample opportunity to grow and evolve, and to explore and express more love. Remember it is all about experiencing and generating more Love.
It is worth noting that even in the most vibrant of gardens, not every plant or flower opens at the same time. If they did, then there could be no evolution, no experience of change, and no opportunities to perceive the beauty of each moment; and yet strive towards ever more. Similarly, not everyone is destined to meet their Twin in this life, nor would it be useful to do so, in terms of the overall evolution of consciousness on the planet.
In finishing, it can be said that the Twin Flame relationship can be seen as a bridge to greater understanding and integration of Love. It brings both Twins and all in their light to a higher state of being and consciousness. It gives them opportunity to serve something so much bigger than their previous sense, gifting and blessing them with a mission that will affect all life at a planetary level, and beyond. The individuals within the pairing are not so important; it is the combination of their strengths and capacity to love that opens the doors to loving emergence for all.
So be open. Seek every opportunity to feel and manifest a greater sense of self love. Prepare yourself without attachment. Regardless of whether you meet your Twin or not, you will be moving towards more love and beauty in your life.
