Below are various articles found online. If I were to describe quickly what I think TF's are, I would say to imagine Yin & Yang. Our twin and ourselves have our own separate identities - formed by life experiences, etc. - yet we really are one; like two sides to the same coin. During - rare? - incarnations together, oftentimes something will invariably keep you apart. I also believe - for most of us anyway - that our twins are watching over us from The Other Side.
Now, is any of this really true? That's up to you to decide for yourself. Follow your instincts and inner voice, not anyone else's.
... and instantly recognize the other half of themselves behind the eyes of each other... The eyes have been rightly called "the windows of the soul." Even their voices are familiar to each other's ears, like a remembered chord of music... These are two who immediately sense the unalterable fact that they have been--are--and must always be One... even though they might have fought against their fate for centuries and struggled in vain to escape their linked destiny... Almost from the first moment they meet and gaze upon each other, their spirits rush together in joyful recognition, ignoring all convention and custom, all social rules of behaviour, driven by an inner knowing too overwhelming to be denied...
During the periods of twinflames being apart, however brief or however extended, both persons are lonely, empty, and incomplete... yet even throughout any such temporary spaces in their togetherness, there's a constant, pulsing astral communication between them-- for even then, they are linked by a cord that connects them over the miles.
Your actual Twin flame is the other half of your soul. Most of the time your Twin flame is not incarnate at the same time as you are, but stays in the Ethers as a guide and a kind of caretaker. Sometimes however, both you and your Twin flame do incarnate at the same time. As said, this is rare. When it does, however, usually that person is NOT your ideal mate, for good reason... they are difficult to live with. Your literal "other half" embodies everything you are and usually reflects EVERYTHING you do not like about yourself. Most people mistake Twin Flame for their Soulmate. Yes, we all have a Twin Flame. Soulmates, you get together and everything is perfect. With a Twin Flame there is chaos: one can be attached, age difference, different locations, or the person has some serious issues and is afraid to open up to the energy because the bond is too intense.
It will be a Direct bond with this person, so drawn that you can’t let go of the connection even if you never had a relationship, or if he/she is not single. Thoughts will be never ending, sometimes for years. Will it lead my life in destruction, what do I do? The connection is very intense and you can feel what they are feeling, even apart. Even when there is a positive or negative lifestyle, you will sense this emotion. Sound a little scary? It can be as beautiful and as traumatic an experience as it sounds. Sometimes people can’t handle this deep Spiritual Bond and block it, but the Twin Flame is never one sided. The feeling between the two will always remain and will in some way find themselves back to their Twin flame when Karma permits. This depends on everyone differently. When will it connect? A Twin Flame usually pops up when you LEAST expect it. You will also find yourself coming down with the same symptoms of a "soulmate connection." It's telepathic, and hugging each other is like coming home for nourishment. Twin flames come together when they have service work to do on the planet.
Know, therefore, that from the greater silence I shall return . . . .Forget not that I shall come back to you . . . . A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me.
~ Kahlil Gibran
There is someone special for everyone. Often there are two or three or even four. They come from different generations. They travel across oceans of time and the depths of heavenly dimensions to be with you again. They come from the other side, from heaven. They look different, but your heart knows them. Your heart has held them in arms like yours in the mood-filled deserts of Egypt and the ancient plains of Mongolia. You have ridden together in the armies of forgotten warrior-generals, and you have lived together in the sand-covered caves of the Ancient Ones. You are bonded together throughout eternity, and you will never be alone.
Your head may interfere: “I do not know you.” Your heart knows.
He takes your hand for the first time, and the memory of his touch transcends time and sends a jolt through every atom of your being. She looks into your eyes, and you see a soul companion across centuries. Your stomach turns upside down. Your arms are gooseflesh. Everything outside this moment loses its importance.
He may not recognize you, even though you have finally met again, even though you know him. You can feel the bond. You can see the potential, the future. But he does not. His fears, his intellect, his problems keep a veil over his heart’s eyes. He does not let you help him sweep the veil aside. You mourn and grieve, and he moves on. Destiny can be so delicate.
When both recognize each other, no volcano could erupt with more passion. The energy released is tremendous.
Soul recognition may be immediate. A sudden feeling of familiarity, of knowing this person at depths far beyond what the conscious mind could know. At depths usually reserved for the most intimate family members. Or even deeper than that. Intuitively knowing what to say, how they will react. A feeling of safety and a trust far greater than could be earned in only one day or one week or one month.
Soul recognition may be subtle and slow. A dawning of awareness as the veil is gently lifted. Not everyone is ready to see right away. There is a timing at work, and patience may be necessary for the one who sees first.
You may be awakened to the presence of your soul by a look, a dream, a memory, a feeling. You may be awakened by the touch of his hand or the kiss of her lips, and your soul is jolted back to life.
The touch that awakens may be that of your child, of a parent, of a sibling, or of a true friend. Or it may be your beloved, reaching across the centuries to kiss you once again and to remind you that you are together always, to the end of time.
Now I want to quickly move on to twin flames.
Twin flames have taken on the fever that the word soul mates used to inspire, and there is a great debate still at hand concerning whether or not twin flames are on earth with us and can indeed be found. So, before I get to the Twin Flame meditation, I want to share something that the angels told me concerning twin flames.
Imagine if you will, a complete flame in eternity, when the flame is pulled apart, there is a division, and (although due to time constraints this is a very short version) when flames, real actual fire flames, meet and come close together, what do they do? They rejoin into one. It is inevitable. The same is true when you encounter your own twin flame, you rejoin, and, hopefully, you get my drift on the rejoining part. The flames consuming one another, do not go to Walmart, they do not cook dinner together. They would do as the flames would, and constantly rejoin.
So when I approached the angels on this matter, this is what I was told, although their actual words were more lengthy and much more eloquent. So I believe that our actual twin flame resides on the other side in the place in between. However, there is a bright side to this, and that is, that we can, indeed rejoin if only for a moment.
So I want to take you there, and I will give a very quick meditation class. This is meditation class 101 Tina Michelle-style.
...imagine, pretend... and visualize an empty room....... you know what an empty room looks like..... at one point or another you should have seen one..... so remember it............this memory projects itself from the third eye...... this is the same way a psychic sees a vision......... it is a memory of what the psychic, however, could not know concerning unknown events..... so remember an empty room...
.....now then, see a table in that room..... imagine ~ pretend & visualize that table to be blue......... on our blue table there will be a red bowl........see it?
.....now then in that red bowl see it filled with 4 oranges..... walk over to the bowl...and pick up the orange..... feel it between your fingertips..... dimply and cool.....now smell it...... you should be able to smell it.....
Now with the orange still at your nose..... allow it to turn into a green apple.......smell the change...... feel the change beneath your fingertips...... the apple is smooth...smells fresh....now place it back on the table within the red bowl... and step back.
You have just done creative visualization. Now then, we are going to take this same practice and go on a quest to visit our twin flames. So relax...... take a breath..... and remember you are a spirit within a container.... just as a glass of water are 2 separate things.......The glass and the water...
You are 3 separate things..... mind, body, spirit. So... we will speak to your spirit now...and ask that... we allow ourselves.... to feel the body... wrapped around the spirit....... within this wrapping.... is an essence that wants to be freed...... to go to the place in between..... to meet your twin flame..... without going through the entire exercise... of releasing your spirit.... I will rely on your soul's knowledge to guide you to me...
So follow my words on the screen..... but allow yourself to drift into that place of pretend that we loved as children..... see yourself in front of your monitor...... allow your essence to come out of the body...... and joining the many others that are awaiting you......
We will travel as a group now..... together into our empty room once more........ the table is gone now...... and there is merely a door there on the opposite side of the room..........come with me... as we travel through that door.....
Once you cross that threshold....... you will be filled with peace........ this is the in-between....... beneath your feet you can feel sand..... grainy and warm...... we look to left and then to right.... and realize we have entered a beach area.....
There before us aways is the ocean....... we can hear the distant roar of its power.......the beach is empty...... except for one shadowy being... up there... close to the water....that is your twin flame.... that has come to meet with you in this place......
Go to them now...... and allow yourself...... to be eclipsed in their love..... and their union.......... take your time with this experience....... allow yourself to feel the completeness that has awaited you....... the totality of it enfolds you..... breath deeply now.......allowing even the air to remind you of your twin flame........
Allow yourself to look at them now....... don't put a face on them...... allow it to form on its own....... this is the essence that completes you...... this is your time to ask a question of your twin flame...... understand their purity....... and their unconditional love for you.........
Now your twin flame hands you a small stick...... and asks you to write one word in the sand....one word that is a request..... of something you desire in your life........ your twin flame can add their energy to it.... to create totality...... write the word in the sand.........and again feel the embrace of your twin flame........ as you watch together the waves of the ocean quickly come upon the shore... and carry your request to the great mystery.....to the universe......
Knowing that you can return at any time to be with your twin flame...... it is time we part now..... so I would ask that you leave them on the beach shore..... and come back towards me...... back to our door....... together we can cross back over....
I know you don’t want to leave.... but you can revisit at any time...... to be with your twin flame once more...... come back into our empty room...... and then back to the computer.....back to your monitor...... and back to you....take a deep breath in....... and resettle your body......
Now what ever you experienced was indeed real, and I tell you on my CD, with the music and much more time, this meditation is awesome. I can only hope that you got some of the same effects tonight, and that you did indeed connect with your twin flame, and also that you did understand the brief workshop mini-review from My Soul Mates & Twin Flames CD. It was indeed my pleasure to work with you, and I hope to meet with you again.
Not everyone meets their twin soul in every lifetime, nor should one seek it out ... it's in God/dess's time when the two soul halves will meet, and their successful reunion depends upon the balancing of karma with other souls, the balance of male/female energies within them and between them, and their Spiritual evolution. The energy between them is powerful, the two halves are often like magnets, there is the irresistible pull, or the inexplicable "pushing away" as the energy is sometimes too powerful for one or both to deal with.
Some people mistake unrequited love for a twinflame relationship. It is not, though these powerful "unrequited" love experiences with soul mates or "near flames" can often be the threshold leading to the meeting with your twin soul. As we learn to love and release and open our hearts fully in compassion, forgiveness, and unconditional love, we are being made ready for the ultimate reunion with the other half of our soul. Both halves will feel this connection, and often many synchronistic events and signs will lead up to this magical meeting.
Often one or both will try to run from the energy, it can scare the "stuff" out of you to meet with this person whose soul resonates so strongly with your own. Looking into this person and seeing yourself can frighten you if you haven't done the inner work. If the two halves have not evolved spiritually to come to the place of unconditional love and inner strength, then the meeting can be tragic, short-lived or beset with difficulties (Nelson Eddy & Jeanette McDonald, Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton come to mind) but the magnetic pull remains.
Often many obstacles lay in the path between the twins and their ultimate reunion. Lessons in patience, perseverance, acceptance and surrender. Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning loved from afar for 20 years as her parents kept them apart. Would such beautiful poetry been born if not for this separation and test of their love? There are stories of twinflames married to others who connect only on the Spiritual plane while respecting the earth vows of their Divine Partner. Evolved twin souls will do no harm or damage to existing relationships, for it will create more karma to be balanced before their reunions can take place.
Some twin souls are not incarnated at the same time, one will be a guide or "guardian angel" from the other side as the other half continues with their earthly lessons. Some twin souls unite and incarnate in one body. In this form they are together as one "unit" and return as a highly enlightened and whole being, as a bodhisattva, teacher or saint. These are the few people who experience no longing or desires, for all is within them in this lifetime. They are balanced in their male/female aspects and have ascended ego. They return to guide other souls to ascension with the Divine Source.
... suddenly pulls away, the dis-connect leaves you feeling as if your soul has left your body, like an empty shell. You just can’t get back to reality and you can feel as if you simply exist.
This experience is similar to grieving the death of a loved one and I know many counselors, at least those who accept and understand connections, who will treat this pain in the same way as a bereavement.
What we're talking about here is not a conventional emotional relationship. A soul connection is the most powerful soul level connection with someone and when separations like this occur you just can't "get over it" or "move on" however hard you try. Many people can't eat sleep or work for a long time, a lot end up on medication and in counseling.
When you are separated from a soul mate, you miss your partner every minute of the day and most days are nothing more than a torture of aching and needing. The soul mate connection is unlike a conventional relationship for, in these cases, the pain of separation doesn’t lessen. Some days it feels as if your heart will burst out of your chest and fly to your true partner.
(from the eBook, 'When Two Souls Connect,' by Steve Gunn )
...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.
When twins get together, it is for some kind of spiritual service work. This is their primary reason for finding each other, because through their union a huge birthing of creative energy is released, to be used for their mission together. More and more twins are attempting to get together now to help the planet and humanity make a big shift forward in consciousness.
However, many of these attempts at reunion are unsuccessful because the individual people are not quite ready for the intensity of a twin flame union. It is more intense than any other union, and this intensity is at a soul level, not as much in the physical or even emotional bodies. This doesn't mean that there isn't a good attraction at those levels as well, but the strongest attraction is of spirit. This is one of the distinguishing characteristics of a twin soul. Many people think they have met their twin because the attraction is so intense, but it is a karmic attraction, one of need or bodily desire rather than the Divine Love of twins.
Your chance of meeting and staying with your twin depends on how evolved your soul is, and how much of your baggage from this and past lives you have cleared. The biggest reason twins have to separate after coming together is their individual emotional baggage. Because in the presence of your twin, there can be nothing between you, nothing blocking your closeness. This means that everything comes up for healing that you haven't previously healed. Everything!
When twins reunite, both of them experience an acceleration of their spiritual growth and awakening. They get on the fast track of learning about esoteric wisdom and experiencing other states of consciousness. They usually haven't been together all that often during their series of lives on the planet, and so their backgrounds may be different. Yet, there is a closeness and similarities of spirit that are almost uncanny, noticed in many ways, such as looking back at yourself when you look at your mate, and a remembering of the distant past when you first split up. Guidance is strong with these relationships, and usually one or both have a good channel for communication with Spirit. Their connection is telepathic, and hugging each other is like coming home for nourishment.

Throughout all of our lives, whether we were aware of it or not, we have in fact always been "connected" to our Twin Flames. Even before we ever reunited with our twins, we have always shared our Divine Compliments emotions. Being connected, we have shared them with our Twins in happiness and sadness, in sickness and in good health, and from the physical plain to the astral plain. But, when Twins come together in the flesh, even if they are unable to make a life together for a myriad of possible reasons, nothing can keep them apart - not walls, not chains, not oceans, and not even if they live on separate continents. Twin Flames - when they come together, are able to defy all laws that apply to this physical realm - a dualistic plain that is collapsing now, into oneness.
Whether or not you have found your Twin here on earth, in the flesh, or on the astral plain, you are aware of the psychic connection that you both share – it is automatic! However, if you are looking for your twin, seeking advice on these divine relationships, or trying to hone your newfound abilities after the recent discovery of your Twin Soul, then maybe you will find something in the body of this article to help you – better connect. Just think of it as one Twin Soul offering help to another Twin Soul. Which is what we are supposed to be doing, right?
So, how do Twin Flames connect? Simply put - they connect across all space and time through LOVE. That is it! There is no incense burning, no wizard behind the curtains, and no smoke & mirrors. Love is the key to connecting with your Twin Soul. Without love, nothing is possible. However, when the Twins keep their hearts open and full with the love of their divine counterpart's essence and energy, they are connected! When Twin Flames become filled with love, they can experience everything that their other half is experiencing across all time, space and distance. You may see, touch, taste, smell, feel, and be with one another if you so desire.
Let us say that you have found your Twin, and that you want to "see" him or her. You know you are connected and you are certain that you are in love, but you cannot be together because you are separated by distance. So here is what you can do - close your eyes, and begin to think of all those things that you love about your Twin – especially their Essence. Envision yourself as being right there with your Twin and feel your heart fill with love. When your heart is all "big inside" or “full,” this is when your connection is at its strongest and will help to amplify your experience. Therefore, when you feel your heart fill with love, with eyes closed, envision that you are literally right there with your Twin and you may be surprised at the clarity with which you will be able to perceive him/her. This is not imagination, although the approach is similar. Speaking from experience, you will literally be able to SEE your Divine Compliment - in real time! Moreover, it does not always require a meditative mode or state of being. Some of you will be able to see your Twin Soul wherever and whenever you want. You may see them driving in their cars, at the computer, in bed, or at work – and it will not matter, even if you live in Australia and he lives in Europe.
Seeing your Twin Flame across space and time may take some practice and getting used to. After all, we are not actually seeing with our eyes anymore. We perceive them across time and space through the vibe of love – similar to the way shamans would journey in the days of old. If you and your twin are able to communicate, via the phone or internet, share your experiences with each other and verify them for accuracy. This will help you fine-tune your abilities and help you to understand the difference between real and imaginary. However, I would be willing to bet, you will both be very surprised at how accurate this vibe of love really is. The vibe of love connecting Twin Flames is a star gate, a wormhole, and a time machine all in one. In addition, when Twin Flames come together in divine love, they receive access to the Kingdom of God.
Connecting with your Twin Flame, in the act of love or sex, whether you are with or without him/her, is the most beautiful display of creation one can ever experience. Making love with your Twin is unlike any other love you will ever have made. It is dreamlike, it is electric, it is Heaven, and I could go on and on and never find the appropriate words in any language on this planet to accurately describe its true meaning or essence. It is simply impossible because the experience itself goes beyond words and imagination. Nevertheless, it is the human dream - the pinnacle of all life experiences - the divine union of masculine and feminine energy.
Sex with your Twin Flame is rarely about self-pleasure, because each of you will be so intent upon giving or serving the other that it will not matter. The joy is really in the giving! In fact, your love for one another will be so great that you may feel as though you could just give all day long and be just as satisfied even if you never received a bean from the other. Lovemaking with your divine counterpart can and does last for hours. If it were not for the daily necessities of having to eat and drink just to stay alive, the two of you could go on and on until you collapse in exhaustion. Yet, even then, you may find yourself wanting to display your affection in ever changing new ways of love.
Now, let us say that you have found your twin but cannot be with each other because you live on opposite ends of the earth. Being connected, you may find that you are able to make love to your twin through the dream state, in meditation, over the phone, and by simply closing your eyes and envisioning yourself doing so. It is quite that simple. Remember, this is not self-pleasure; there are no hands required or need for the Twin to be there physically. The only thing you need to have to make love to your Twin when you're separated by distance are hearts full of love, which in turn creates an open connection between the two of you, whereby you will be able to send and receive - LOVE! Through this vibe of love you will literally be able to make love to your twin without ever laying a hand on him/her and in turn and you may receive all the pleasures that you would if you were there, physically – but only better – much better! The secret to success in making love while you are, separated, will depend only on how much "Love" you hold with your Twin.
Let us say that you have decided to meditate on your Twin Soul and you are both aware that you will be meditating on each other at exactly the same time. Once again, close your eyes and let your heart be filled with the essence of your Divine Compliment. Next, envision yourself (without expectation) as standing or sitting directly in front of him/her. The key to successfully contacting your twin is in the envisioning of him/her. Through the vibe of love that you have for each other you may visit each other wherever and whenever you want!
Once you have made contact with your Twin and have a visual the rest is up to you. For me, personally, I prefer to go right up to my Twin at first contact and kiss her. How could I not? I find her irresistible. In addition, do not be surprised to see your Twin "split" from the physical form if they have not done so by the time you reach him/her. This is normal but may take some time to digest if you have not experienced it before. After all, it is very profound! With the realization of the power that you have, some of you may be able to try it all on and find that it fits like a glove, while for others it may take some time to accept – especially while you balance out any karma from the past. In the beginning it may seem overwhelming at first as if what you are experiencing is like something out of a Hollywood film. Words of advice – Welcome your Twin Soul and the newfound abilities that go with this relationship because you will never find another like it.
Other things you may notice while being with your Twin in the spirit world is that you may choose to perceive each other, as he/she would appear in the physical, or you may perceive your Twin as pure energy. The perceiving of your Twin in the physical is enough, alone, for the beginner to be “wowed,” but when you see and feel the pure energy of your twin soul, this can create an overwhelming sense of ecstasy that can sometimes be so powerful as to break you from your meditation or snap you back to the physical. When this happens, take a break! There will be other times, because your love, which equals the ability to touch each other across time and space, is going nowhere, for you are awakened. Simply being together, you collapse all time, space and distance. You are the human dream!
As an end note: Paula (my Twin Soul) and I believe, as we are now beginning to experience, that as more and more Twin Souls reunite and “come online,” so to speak, a collective consciousness will emerge. This collective consciousness will not only link yourself to your twin, but will link you to all other Twin Souls that are out there. As more and more Twin Souls come online, the speed and connection we have to work with will improve. We are literally creating our own web of communication made possible by LOVE. We could all very well be linked together through this collective consciousness, which is now accessible.

Everyone has heard or used the word soul mates when describing a relationship of great intensity and love. But there is one connection that runs much deeper than even that of a soul mate. More and more people are finding there is a greater love and soul connection. It is called the Twin Flame or Twin Soul Connection. I remember reading about Twin Flames about ten years ago and thought to myself what a great theory. It explains a lot for many people in love but it also appears these unions are extremely rare. Most people, I read, will never reconnect with their twin souls for many lifetimes.
Lately, in my practice, I have noticed that twin flame connections are becoming more and more common. They are still uncommon but they are increasing in number. Everyone can find their soul mate if they look hard enough and you can have more than one soul mate too. Soul mates don't have to be a lover, your wife or boyfriend. Soul Mates can be your teachers, friends, kids and even for you pet lovers, your beloved dog or cat.
But Twin Flames are another story. They represent the highest form of love and spiritual connection two souls could ever have. You only get one twin soul and that is because you were originally a single soul at one point. Then you and your twin flame, broke off into two souls, to reincarnate and learn specific lessons individually. Because many of us are operating on a higher vibrational frequency these days (and I wrote about this in recent columns), more twin fame reunions are happening. These connections are the most fulfilling relationships we can enter into, on all levels imaginable. In the past, twin flame couples have been extremely rare. But as the acceleration of our spiritual transformation takes place, we are learning, growing and evolving at a faster rate; thus attracting to us our twin flames. Many of us have begun a huge healing process within the past few years. Great healing, from not just this lifetime from many prior lifetimes, is occurring. When we evolve, we do not need to learn as many mundane lessons. We begin to operate on a higher spiritual plane, thus coming back in contact with our Twin Soul. It's like coming back home in a sense and ready to do the work we need to do together for the soul's growth. When we cannot grow any more alone, we reunite with our Twin Flame to evolve together. It really is a homecoming!
When Twin Flames rekindle their fire, it is generally because together they are ready to do some kind of spiritual service work that effects the entire world in some way. This is their primary reason for finding each other. Then their energy is released into the universe, creating a destined path they will walk together. As our spirituality advances, more and more twins souls are finding one another. Now that's the good news. There is also a down side to this theory. Many Twin Flame reunions are unsuccessful because the couple or one of them is not prepared for the deep intensity they will feel. It is like nothing they have ever known before in this lifetime. The intensity is at a soul level. Even though the sexual chemistry is there, most couples will say, they just love being one another's presence.The strongest attraction is that of the spirit. This is Divine Love in its highest form. The chances of making a connection with your Twin Soul really depends on how evolved you are and if your karma has been worked through. It is only after your individual karma has been met, that you are ready for Twin Flame magic.
When twin flames reconnect, they both feel magnetically drawn to one another and many times have interesting spiritual experiences. They can sense what the other is thinking, feeling, etc. It's as if they are truly the other's half. There is definitely a psychic connection between the two. If you are fortunate enough to have met your twin flame already, make sure you do not allow old emotional wounds from other relationships to destroy what you have. Honor this relationship and consider yourself blessed. Because even though Twin Flames reunions are becoming more common, they still are very special and rare.
.... are not the same thing. Soul Mates are other souls that have agreed to connect with you on this planet for a purpose. In some cases it is to clear up karma, in other cases it is to finish unfinished business, and for some it is to accomplish a particular goal together. These relationships may be a joy to be in or these relationships may be a pain in your life. Either way they are here for a reason.
When Soul Mates first meet they sometimes feel as if they already know each other. They may feel very familiar to each other. Soul Mates can have a beautiful relationship together, but it will take work. Soul Mate relationships may last a lifetime and others may only be for a particular purpose and be temporary. You can have more than one Soul Mate in a lifetime.
Twin Flames are very different and very rare. Twin Flames are two people in two separate bodies that share the same Soul. Twin Flames meet each other in their first incarnation so that they remember the soul frequency of the other being. They are then usually reunited on their last time to this planet. If Twin Flames meet before they are ready they can be the total opposite and not at all compatible. When Twin Flames meet and are ready for each other, it is the most enjoyable experience possible on Earth.
At this point, Twin Flames are almost identical. They truly compliment each other and it is a hardship for them to be apart. As an outside observer it is sometimes hard to distinguish the two people. They also have a very strong bond and often have telepathy with each other. Their lives even before meeting each
other have many parallels. Again, meeting your Twin Flame is very rare on this planet.
So, all relationships serve a purpose and should be honored and appreciated for what they have to offer you in your personal spiritual growth. Thank the person and the experiences for all that you have had the opportunity to learn and clear. Know that ALL relationships are sacred, because they bring us closer to the Light of All That Is. Amen and Be Blessed!

Once we were One
and decided on adventure.
To explore, and become,
and create, and have fun.
We were inseparable then,
as indeed we are now.
We only knew Light, Power,
Wisdom, Compassion, and Love.
Then We heard of a game
the Source called “Life on Earth”.
We wanted to play, and signed up
with great mirth.
We found it so funny—
We laughed ‘til we cried,
to forget who We are?
Let’s jump on that ride!
Then We became two, but
not separate yet.
We cannot be separate,
Twin Flames, don’t forget.
We descended and spiraled
way down, into Matter.
The coach told Us when,
amid much too much clatter.
The noise, the gross smells,
the chaos and confusion,
how far we then fell,
right into Illusion.
We came then into a universe so free;
already mired, caught up in the spell.
We passed Lucifer’s place;
I think they call it “Hell”.
Suddenly We split,
each lost track of the Other.
Our agreement was clear:
find each other on Mother.
This place seemed so huge,
this planet called Earth.
We came into that life,
through something called “birth”.
We knew not each other then,
but came to know others;
all sisters and brothers,
but of different mothers.
The game started in earnest then,
confusing as Hell.
What the heck do I do now,
how can I do well?
Why am I here now?
I wondered at times.
Who am I, why am I,
what difference makes Time?
On occasion I encountered
another so fine,
my resistance was futile,
my resolve would unwind.
That Other came not every lifetime,
it seemed, but only at those times
I’d lost it, or in a dream. Or maybe
when He’d lost it too…what a thought!
That Other played both sides,
and I did as well.
Both darkness and Light,
both Heaven and Hell.
We even changed genders,
in this great Game,
and tried out all manner of
costumes and names.
Eventually we grew and became
Something much Higher, Light-er
and then we knew:
This IS just a Game!
We two came to see,
it is serious We’ve played it,
now let’s play it with glee!
We came yet again
to correct each the Other,
to really connect,
completely Love one another.
for We two once were One;
to connect so much deeper,
to remember…such fun!
We forgot that such time
in the Game is so short,
We forgot there was more work,
forgot the more forks.
The forks in the path are
there for a purpose:
the purpose of balance,
the purpose of Purpose.
Such pain there was then,
in that last awful split.
Such pain in my heart,
that I almost quit.
I felt that great tear,
that huge loss in my heart—
that could not be repaired,
that’s what I thought.
It took quite a long time,
a long journey for me,
to finally remember,
He travels with me.
He always is with me,
as near as can be.
He cannot be far,
for We two are Free.
We freely chose,
to come down here and play.
We did it for fun,
there is no delay.
in just the right time,
it all is Perfection,
it all is Divine.
And now I remember,
and rejoice in my Knowing;
We can never be separate,
but had to think that, for growing.
Our Vesica Piscus
is almost complete,
Our growing together,
with experiences replete.
My Other, My One,
He helps me to see.
Soon We two will be One again,
complete, He with She.
This journey has been hard,
fraught with danger, it seems.
But We came for a big job:
wake up those who dream.
So wake up, you dreamers,
So We all can go Home!
Wake up and remember,
you have Twin Souls.
Remember the One you
seemed to have lost;
that Now Is The Time,
recall not the cost.
Our Twin Flame awaits Us,
each One of Us now.
whether this side or that,
doesn’t matter somehow.
The greatest glory waits
much nearer than far;
just remember your Twin Flame,
and for your Mission, raise the bar!
Shine now, Twin Flames,
Shine NOW with great Love—
Our Love comes direct,
from Heaven above.
There is nothing can stop Us
from being Ourselves,
nothing but Us,
certainly nothing like Hell.
Remember that Now,
align all Twin Flames,
and let’s get on Home,
and say “thanks for the Game”!
Your soul is consciousness or thought. We often perceive it as a creational flame, a light or a soul spark of light.
Physical reality is made of electromagnetic energy which has poles (north/south) - polarity - duality - opposites - male/female - yin/yang.
When you experiences in third dimension your soul sparks splits in half - male and female. One half remains in higher frequency [As is Above] while one half spirals in third dimension [So is Below]. If you are female, your partner above is male and vice versa.
Sometimes you catch a glimpse of that spark of light - if only for a second. The flash of light appears as gold, silver, blue, or violet and can vary in size and duration of time - usually no more that one second. It is at this time - we are raising our frequency - our level of consciousness thought - to experience beyond what our physical eyes show us. We see our twin flame who exists as a soul spark in higher frequency. It is who we are as well.
Encoded in our DNA - as part of the human experience - is the need to reunite with our twin flame. This draws us back to our creational source after we experience in third dimension. It reminds of that we will journey Home - to find this twin aspect of ourselves who loves us unconditionally and makes us feel complete - as One.
We search for ourselves by healing to restore balance at which time we will reach Zero Point - the merge of our matter and antimatter selves.
The third dimension is often referred to as 'In The Box'. When your polarities merge - Your male and female aspects will move 'Out of the Box' igniting union with your Twin Flame or Twin Aspect.
Many people miss their other soul aspect, and feel incomplete throughout their lives. They feel alone, often abandoned and lost, depressed. They cannot find themselves. A piece of themselves is always missing. They search for it in third dimension but never completely find it. If they are lucky, they find someone who comes close to making them feel whole. They want someone to love them, share with them and help them through this journey.
You can meet someone who can carry the frequency of our Twin Flame and give you the feeling of union - Oneness. When you make love with that partner - you can experience all of who you are - the union is multi-dimensional. You can also feel the energies of your other soul aspect - as part of the union!
Creation is linked to the color frequency BLUE as that is the color of electricity. One day you will rejoin your Twin Flame and you will spiral out in the color BLUE.

The subject of soul mate would be totally incomplete with out first addressing the phenomenon of the "twin flame" because the former arises from the later. Please allow us to share... The purpose of our soul (from our perspective) is to undergo countless incarnations in order that it may fully and completely express itself as a unique glorification of the One Life. In order to do this, the soul needs a powerful mirror. It achieves this by dividing into two. The division is notional just as all separation between individual parts of the One Life is an illusion. Both are complete, whole and yet the soul is comprised of two complimentary parts. Yes it's a paradox of creation - the ultimate divine paradox that generates the experience of relativity ("Yin" as opposed to "Yang") and therefore the miraculous experience of life itself.
The purpose of twin flames is balance; they are directly complimentary to one another. This polar equation is necessary to create momentum and direction on the path of a soul. Without it, our journey would likely be random, chaotic and meaningless or even non-existent. Our twin flame draws us back to the source like a universal magnet; it is our memory of the original condition of absolute completeness expressed through the finest quintessence of form; she is almost, but not quite, completely formless.
Upon incarnation, one half of the soul remains in the highest levels of consciousness close to the source. Its purpose is to continually draw the other back to its true nature. It does this by manifesting reflections of itself through the weave of life surrounding its 'other half'. For example, the half that is incarnated may suddenly find themselves drawn to a particular cloud formation, the awesome beauty of an animal or the miracle of mother nature. As we feel the stirrings of love, joy and harmony within, it is our twin flame that we're likely connecting with reminding us of who and what we are. She creates our pathway and the beauty we experience on it. The connection generates safe, unattached passage through the external drama and helps unwind the conditioning that limits our limitlessness.
When we finally realise the presence and beauty of our twin flame, rather than getting engrossed within the mirror of them (believing our partner is them for example and attaching to that), we are blessed with the most profoundly magical state of being possible within incarnation. It is as if a hundred thousand angels are constantly positioned all around us, helping, guiding, nurturing and above all, unconditionally loving us. When the essence of our twin flame draws close, it is as if a divine being is sitting above our heads pouring a continual cascade of love downwards through our being. We will only feel this fully though when we give up the external search for an object of our love (a soul mate for example). If there is still residual need for another half to make the whole complete, this magical experience of divine self love is not possible.
Frequently the twin flame will appear in symbolic representation - a spiritual vision for example such as a unicorn or some other mythical animal. Sometimes it will appear in the people we are attracted to or form relationships with. A twin flame may even cast an energetic 'enhancement' (a rose tinted filter) around someone close to us in order that we may see the reflection and find the self love within. Earlier in our journey it is likely we'll be seduced into thinking this partner is our twin flame. Indeed we may get duped in this way many times thinking "this is it", "I've met the partner I've been looking for through countless incarnations". If we have such feelings, what may have happened is that we've possibly met up with our ultimate soul mate. So what exactly is a soul mate and how does it relate to the twin flame?
The term soul mate has a tendency to arouse romantic images of a pre-destined, ideal mate, upon which reunion results in the blissful, harmonious 'answer to all things'. However, (at least in our experience) the truth is very different indeed. So what is the purpose of our soul mate? From our perspective it is this...
A true soul mate represents the closest reflection of the twin flame that is possible in physical incarnation. The soul mate is not our twin flame, but has agreed to partner through many incarnations to help us connect with our ultimate holy grail.
So the true soul mate presents a continually updating mirror to their partner in order that we may peel away distortions, find inner completeness and dissolve into union with our twin flame. Of course looking in the mirror is not always something we wish to do - especially if what we see doesn't agree with us! To intensify matters, there is simply no escaping the mirror once its shown to us - all of our buttons seem to get pressed at once. We are continually exposed to the 'good', the 'bad' and the 'ugly'! We might be forgiven for wanting to run a mile but then the love that unites both by a common cause pulls them back together for another round of intense navel gazing.
For a soul that is just beginning to emerge, this process would be too destructive and so union with our soul mate doesn't usually happen at the same place or time until they have released sufficient karma and let go of remaining emotional attachments along the path. From our experience soul mates don't incarnate together at all until each are ready to move on a higher plane of existence as part of their spiritual journey.
When soul mates unite there is no allowance for anything other than pure honesty and clarity between them. Remaining distortions surface immediately rendering union almost incomprehensible before most of our 'stuff' has been released. It doesn't serve any of us to connect before we are ready. Frequently people go through many relationships that help to fine tune and release attachments until they are sufficiently evolved to move on to higher paradigms with their soul mate. Of course we may often experience deeply fulfilling relationships with someone other than our soul mate before we get there. It is all part of the grand unfolding of a unique soul.
Frequently we read of people searching for their true soul mate. Unfortunately this is just another alluring deception of the matrix in which we live, attaching us to the endless spinning wheel of need or desire for physical and emotional fulfilment through something external to the divine within (our twin flame). When we release our attachment and reconnect with who we really are, peel away our distortions and allow our beingness to magically and effortlessly shape our reality, then first our twin flame will come calling, inviting us to unite in solitude. When this divinely magical event takes place, we may well be blessed by an encounter with our true soul mate in order that we may experience divine union in physical form but that's unlikely to happen if we're efforting for it.
It may well be a long wait, and the journey may be winding, but from our experience, it's definitely a destination worth not striving for!

This is a random post I found, and which I agree with 100%.
We all have several soulmates. We only have one twin flame though....the twin flame is the other half of our spiritual self. Soulmates are people that have been with us for many incarnations---sometimes positively, sometimes negatively, but these are the people that are in your life for a reason and vice versa.
Your twin flame (or other half) may not choose to incarnate at the same time you do. In fact, he or she may be over on the other side. Usually, when Twin Flames reunite, there is a large age difference and unusual circumstances either surrounding them or preventing them from being together altogether. For example, you both might be married. When you find him or her you'll know it....you will communicate without words, you will sense each other even if you're far apart from each other (this can be said about soulmates too) and you will feel as though you can not live without that person---literally. Also, whether or not you can be together is irrelevant in that you have come together to discover something, even if it can only be on a friendship level on this incarnation. You must keep communicating once you have found each other---it really isn't an option. It's frightening, but incredibly wonderful.
