From the moment you met them, you have known there was a deeper connection at play. The familiarity you felt was unnerving, yet binding.
Finding your "soulmate" was probably high on your priority list when you were younger but after having seen what's really out there, you chose the more practical kind of love. However, you weren't really sure if you're in love or you've settled for a relationship that's just low on drama.
However, every time you wonder if there's something more special, you have this nagging thought at the back of your mind that all is not going to be well. And you know what? You might be right. Because all is not meant to be right, if you're with your ultimate soulmate - your twin flame.
"The real purpose of Twin Flame is not about great sex, emotional highs and an epic love story — it’s to wake you up, shake you up and call you higher. It is a gift presented by the Divine — one you can only grasp fully when you’ve released all the smaller things you’ve been clinging to for so long that no longer serve you," Dr. Lisa Vallejos. PhD, psychology, told Goal Cast.
A twin flame is a "mirror soul" or "soul connection", they are the other half of your soul. It is believed that a soul is capable of dividing in half after reaching a higher level of consciousness. Those souls end up in two different bodies, according to The Law Of Attraction.
It’s "essentially the other half of your soul," Patricia Hicks, a psychic advisor at Keen.com, told Women's Health. There’s an "unconditional love and bond that sticks," Hicks notes.
Hicks said that people might have multiple soul mates but only one twin flame. So, yes and no, because your twin flame could be your soul mate but not all soul mates are twin flames. Your twin flame can also be a friend or family member. When you meet them, you will know that you're cut from the same cloth. The bond you feel with them will be intense and you will be drawn to them without realizing why.
When you meet a twin flame, multiple signs will tell you that you're meant to be.
1. You will feel a telepathic or psychic connection with them.
2. You will feel a magnetic pull.
3. You feel you know them from earlier even if you just met.
4. Your fears and insecurities are the same.
5. You force each other to change and challenge each other.
Your twin flame will cause you pain, in fact, they are supposed to. The purpose of a twin flame is to feel an awakening to the new and surrender to it. However, between realizing that you have to surrender, accept and awaken is an internal struggle you have to deal with. You will see an intense personal growth and transformation. You will be forced to redefine yourself and dig through the layers of yourself so that the diamond can shine at the end. This unearthing will cause you intense pain, but in the end you will know that it was necessary.
