The journey our soul takes in our life is almost always a complex and curvy one, and usually never follows a simple, straight line. Much like the roots of a tree deep in the Earth, we bend and expand within, all in an effort to better our understanding of ourselves, our lives and the world we live in.
Do you sometimes feel like you’re missing a part of yourself? Or do you feel like you’re incomplete, no matter how much you’ve managed to accomplish? If so, it could be that you have a twin flame in this universe that you have yet to meet. It could also be that your soul mate is out there looking for you, and your soul is yearning to find them.
Are Soul Mates And Twin Flames The Same Thing?
A lot of people are under the impression that soul mates and twin flames are one and the same. They are not though, as they have some differences. Most of the time, when people hear the words “soul mates”, a romantic picture comes to mind. Soul mates aren’t always romantic in nature though. There are many different forms of soul mates, and they don’t all have to do with love.
Soul mates are people who come into your life and who you feel immensely and profoundly connected to, even more so than a family member or a friend. Most of the time these connections happen almost instantly, and they are intense and deeply meaningful.
Your soul mate is able to understand you on a whole other level, one that no one else is able to. This is because both of your souls have traveled through time and space together before, encountering each other at different significant and important phases of your life.
So, while it can be of a romantic nature, it can also be a best friend or a family member. It can even be someone who you just barely met but who has quickly earned your trust and understands you better than anyone else ever has.
Soul mates gift us with deeper, more intense, and more meaningful understandings of what our place is in the universe and in this lifetime. Some soulmates are only in your life for a short period of time, while others stay with you throughout your souls’ journey on this Earth. Whether they’re short-term or long-term, both of them help you learn, grow, and get ready for the next stage of your journey.
Twin Flames Can Be More Complicated And Intense
Unlike soul mates, which are more common and happen more often, not everyone has a twin flame. This is because of how significant and unique this experience is. Twin flames are the result of one spirit separating itself into two halves a long time ago, and they are able to weave in and out of different lifetimes.
Finding your twin flame isn’t always rainbows and sunshine either. If they come to you during a certain time of your life when you (or them even) aren’t mature enough to accept and handle each other, then finding them can actually be pretty painful and devastating. For one reason or another, your souls aren’t ready to unite yet, even though it feels like you belong together.
A reunion of twin flames can sometimes be too much to handle for either of your souls. It’s not uncommon for one person to feel too vulnerable and exposed because of how deeply the other person can see into their soul. They might not feel comfortable with such an intense connection and decide to flee the situation, instead of embracing it for what it is- a profound and sacred union.
When this happens, the other person can be left feeling confused and feel like a huge loss has occurred to them. This is because they were deprived of something so magnificent. This can also make them feel depressed and cause them to question everything about themselves.
Some people believe that twin flames can only successfully reunite into a long and flourishing relationship when the souls of both parties are prepared to move on to the next plane of existence. If you feel like you’ve had an extremely strong and powerful connection to someone, especially someone who isn’t even normally your “type”, but it didn’t work out, don’t feel like you did anything wrong!
It could just be that, despite how you felt about them, you might not be fully ready or able to be involved in this type of relationship at this point in your life. Take some time to grow and discover more about yourself. Learn as much as you can about yourself and get in touch with your inner being.
If this person really is your twin flame, they will come back in to your life and you will meet them again when you are both ready for each other.
If you aren’t sure whether you’ve met your twin flame before, or are having a hard time getting in touch with your inner being and feel like you could use some help, don’t hesitate to consult a genuine and trustworthy psychic to see what you can do to better yourself and grow. The more you know yourself, the more prepared you will be when you meet your twin flame or your soul mate!
