The Twin Flame Phenomenon, Explored

twin flame souls

What if I told you that every relationship you’ve had with anyone, romantic or not, has been practice for the ULTIMATE relationship – your Twin Flame union? 

While soulmates explains a soul relationship that has likely developed over several lifetimes, the concept termed ‘twin flames’ describes two people who are halves of each other. A twin flame is you in another person. You may have different personalities and be two completely independent beings, but you are irrevocably connected on a soul level.

If reincarnation truly does exist and occurs, then twin flames play different roles in each other’s lives in different lifetimes. These two souls travel throughout different lifespans – sometimes meeting in the earthly world but always reuniting between lifetimes.

Many believe that the twin flame is a singular soul split into two beings to experience duality on earth.

The twin flame is a singular soul, split into two beings to experience duality on earth.

Though this might seem pretty far-fetched, especially if like me, you haven’t yet met your Twin Flame, it is too interesting a concept not to explore it. Though many would shrug this off as New Age-y, the intense twin flame relationship has been discussed as far back as in Plato’s Symposium.

Plato explained the feeling of finding that person as follows:

“And when one of them meets with his other half, the actual half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy, and one will not be out of the other’s sight, as I may say, even for a moment: these are the people who pass their whole lives together, and yet they could not explain what they desire of one another.

For the intense yearning which each of them has towards the other does not appear to be the desire of lover’s intercourse, but of something else which the soul of either evidently desires and cannot tell…”

In the beginning of time, we were created from one source.

According to believers of this concept, and explained similarly in Symposium, in the beginning of time we were created from one source. That source was split into smaller units until it was reduced to pairs of souls that would journey to Earth to learn and experience duality. They would reincarnate over lifetimes with an unexplainable longing for each other.

Perceiving life through disconnection is not natural to us, but we do it anyway.

As humans, our tendency is to create divisions, distinctions and separations in our minds. Perceiving life through disconnection, however, is not natural to us. What is natural is to experience Oneness – the feeling that we are all connected. We are all made of the same matter, that the rocks and trees and animals have a life force in them that boils within our veins as well. Though a twin flame relationship indicates soul duality, it is also a vessel through which we can discover and explore the possibility of Oneness.

How I Attracted a Specific Person EASILY:

In reality, a twin flame relationship is not an easy one nor a practical one – at least in the beginning. It is all-consuming and it will just about drive you crazy. You will feel like you are itching to get out of your body and attach to this other person. This is because your soul is craving contact. People who specialize in this phenomenon call this the Runner and Chaser phase. Both souls must eventually play both roles, one after the other.

Of course, there are just as many if not more positive things about finding your twin soul. Once the confusion and intensity lift, getting to know someone who is half of your own soul will give you fresh perspective on yourself, your mortality, and your life.
