What is a twin flame? A twin flame is a different and more profound connection in many ways than even a soul mate. While we can have many soul mates in our life, both platonic and romantic, there is only one twin flame. This is because the twin flame is understood as generally a physically embodied soul expression which is the polar or complimentary aspect to your own soul. I have heard it explained that, in a sense, when source was dividing into infinite expressions of consciousness for the purpose of experiencing itself, each soul coming to experience duality was split into two parts of a whole. Therefore the twin flame could be understood to be the other half of one’s own soul.
However, we must be careful to understand that while we may experience the twin flame connection or we may not this does not mean we are not whole and complete unto our self. And indeed this is one of the lessons the twin flame comes to teach. Here are 4 signs you have met your twin flame:
1. An Intense Acceleration of Evolution: Usually when twin flames meet, the instant and intense chemistry is followed by a rapid acceleration of personal development and evolution for both the twins and for each of them individually. The twin reflects aspects of the self that are deep and profound and therefore when twins meet, the energy created will often spur both twins to uncover major soul gifts, bring them both quickly onto their soul path with purpose, and help to clear away those belief systems and paradigms that are outdated.
2. An Eternal Sense of Knowing: When you meet your twin flame, it will be a feeling unlike any other connection you have ever had in this life, and yet the feeling will touch something unspeakable familiar and beautiful in your heart. You will feel and know that you have known this soul for eternity. You naturally feel one with this person and the love is immense and powerful.
3. Peace and/or Chaos: As mentioned, the meeting of the twin flame is not for the faint of heart, which is why plenty of souls choose not to do so in their current incarnation. Twin flame relationships can either soar with an unbelievable expansion of love and acceptance or can violently crash and burn in chaos and pain if either twin is in resistance and unwilling or not ready to release beliefs, habits, and paradigms that are preventing an experience of love without attachment and expectation. These relationships will challenge both partners to the core.
4. The Sex is of a Different Caliber: Many twin flames will probably unite in sexual experiences that may be unlike any other they have had before. This is because the soul-level connection is profound. Twin flames may experience sexual union outside of or beyond the physical body-i.e. astral sex. Astral sex can be experienced as the feeling of one’s spirit fully merging with the twins spirit, and this can happen with or without physical intercourse. While sexual intercourse always is a time for union and mergence, with the twin flame it can truly take on an other-worldy quality where through the gateways of one another’s eyes, other places in space and time can be seen and past, future, and concurrent lives can be accessed.
These are just a few main characteristics of the amazing twin flame bond. Everyone will experience it differently and these relationships ca have many different outcomes depending on the life paths of both people. Ultimately you will know you have found your twin flame by the deep resonance you feel within.
