The journey our soul takes in life is almost always complex and curvy, usually never following a simple, straight line.
Like tree roots deep in the ground, we bend and expand to better understand ourselves, our lives, and our world.
Do you sometimes feel like you’re missing a part of yourself? Like you’re incomplete, no matter how much you’ve managed to accomplish?
If so, you could have a twin flame in this universe that you have yet to meet. Or maybe your soulmate is out there looking for you, and your soul is yearning to find them.
Are Soulmates And Twin Flames The Same Thing?
Many believe soulmates and twin flames are the same, and they aren’t, though, as they have some differences. When people hear the word “soulmate,” a romantic picture often comes to mind.
Soulmates aren’t always romantic, though. Many forms of soulmates don’t have to do with love. Soulmates are people who come into your life and to who you feel immensely and profoundly connected, even more so than a family member or a friend.
Most of the time, these connections happen instantly and are intense and deeply meaningful. Your soulmate can understand you on a whole other level, one that no one else can.
The reason is that both of your souls have previously traveled through time and space together, encountering each other at different significant and vital phases of your life.
So, while it can be romantic, it can also be a best friend or a family member. It can even be someone you barely met but who has quickly earned your trust and understands you better than anyone else.
Soulmates gift us more profound, intense, and meaningful understandings of our place in the universe and in this lifetime. Some soulmates are only in your life for a short period, while others stay with you throughout your soul’s journey on Earth.
Whether short-term or long-term, both help you learn, grow, and get ready for the next stage of your journey.
Twin Flames Are More Complicated And Intense
Unlike soulmates, which are more common and happen more often, not everyone has a twin flame, and this is because of how significant and unique this experience is.
Twin flames result from one spirit separating itself into two halves a long time ago, and they can weave in and out of different lifetimes. Finding your twin flame isn’t always rainbows and sunshine either.
Finding them can be pretty painful and devastating if they come to you during a particular time of your life when you (or them) aren’t mature enough to accept and handle each other.
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 common for someone to feel too vulnerable and exposed with the other person seeing into their souls so deeply. They might not feel comfortable with such an intense connection and decide to flee the situation.
Fleeing is easier than embracing it for what it is- a profound and sacred union. When this happens, the other person can be left feeling confused and deprived of something magnificent, as a huge loss has occurred to them.
This experience can also make them feel depressed and cause them to question everything about themselves.
Meeting Your Twin Flame Is A Spiritual Experience
Some people believe twin flames can only successfully reunite into long and flourishing relationships when both people’s souls are prepared to move on to the next plane of existence.
If you feel like you’ve had a powerful connection to someone, especially someone who isn’t even typically your “type,” but it didn’t work out, don’t feel like you did anything wrong!
Despite your feelings, you may not be fully ready or able to be in this type of relationship yet. Take some time to grow and discover more about yourself. Learn as much as possible about yourself and get in touch with your inner being.
If this person is your twin flame, they will come back into your life. You’ll meet them again when you’re both ready for this intense relationship.
Don’t worry if you can’t tell if you’ve met your twin flame before. There’s also nothing wrong with having a hard time getting in touch with your inner being and wanting help.
Consider consulting 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’ll be when you meet your twin flame or soulmate!
