Coincidentally enough, a youtube relationship coach I follow is doing a livestream today on twin flames - which I find incredibly interesting because she is the polar opposite of a woo-woo type, touchy-feely, "it's a spiritual connection,' in her advice! Who knows, maybe she'll trash the whole concept of twin flames.
If anyone is interested:
Be forewarned if you watch: her energy strikes me a bit as 'think and act like a man' and I wouldn't be surprised if she has an avoidant attachment style. So if you're looking for a warm hug type of relationship advice, this ain't it 😆
I believe in twin flames, but it's very easy to mistake a karmic for a twin. It FEELS like meeting the person was meant to be, and it was, but not always for the reason you think. What seems like construction is sometimes demolition to build with someone else later or just to clear away debris so you can build alone.
One thing I hate about this phenomenon is people who say they know what a real twin flame is. Ones who say (not to me just stuff I’ve read) “if it were a real twin flame (fill in the blank) or “that doesn’t sound like a true twin flame” And judge all others who say they have met their twin flame that don’t have an experience just like theirs. There are a lot of truly ignorant people believing in twin flames. And posting all their nonsense and so called expertise. It just gets under my skin. It’s grosser than dogma.
If you notice, most people who talk about twin flames are young, naive, immature and often extremely ignorant.
you don’t often find a well adjusted, balanced, mature person talking much about it. I wish I could see what some younger people who believe in it now, think about it in 20 years.
Twin flames are NOT a relationship. You can't be in a relationship with your self. "They" are you, one being. Hard to describe as it's all energy and people's minds cannot understand this. Words fall short. Like explaining colors to a blind person. Your other self energetically activates your spiritual awakening and the goal is ascension, nothing more. IF your soul brings them in, it's a byproduct of going within. It's the true spiritual journey of letting go of form. If you don't, you suffer
IF you have expectations, longing, emotions, want validation, reciprocation, etc etc, the energy pushes them away. It's ONE energy system. You are polarized at the astral. One positive (pushes) one negative (pull)
There are a few key energy points to determine IF the other is a twin flame.
1) Dark night of the soul/ego (mine was 6 months = brutal, hardest thing I've ever done in my life)
2) Obsessive thinking (off the charts, on steroids obsessive...whew)
3) Doubt (doubt is there because at the beginning of dark night of the soul, the mind's duality energy is activated and your energy swings from doubt (mind) to knowing (the soul))
4) Core wound activation (either heart, solar plexus, or sacral chakras) it's not a wound to "heal" but where the soul is tethered here in the physical ... mine was the heart chakra...pounding out my chest very hard for 3 weeks...nothing I've ever experienced
5) Knowing -- after your dark night of the soul energy settles down, your inner knowing soul energy is apparent
6) Majority, not all, have a kundalini awakening
This energy is HAPPENING TO YOU, you have absolutely no control; at least for several months.
Soulmates are a transactional relationship: emotions, you do something for them/they do something for you, reciprocations, etc. Another soul loving another soul
Twin flames are one soul two bodies
The harder you try to receive anything FROM your twin flame, the other resists (pulls). So you are forced to go within
Everyone has and is a twin flame. The only difference is, once soul recognition occurs, you are conscious of the inner knowing
Sadly, many people "think" the name twin flames is endearing so the majority of twin flame couples on Youtube chanels are not twin flames. They are just putting soulmates into the twin flame box
I've had some brutal and equally transcendental experiences. I will never be the same, and my level of spiritual consciousness has and is expanding
Hope this helps
