What is a Twin Flame?

By Lady Saoirse

Some people feel they are not 100% complete within themselves. They feel like a part of them is missing, and sometimes that is just a matter of self-work, but sometimes, something really is missing. Part of you. Twin Flames are people who are a part of us, and we feel most complete when we are together. Learn about your Twin Flame journey, what Twin Flames are, and how to find your Twin Flame.

Did you ever meet somebody you felt so close to, you thought that for sure they were a part of you? Maybe people dismissed that idea, saying it is impossible, but something in your heart told you differently. It probably wasn’t your imagination. That person who feels like a part of you is probably something called a Twin Flame. Not to be confused with a Soulmate, a Twin Flame is someone you won’t ever want to be without once they come into your life. Not everybody has a Twin Flame, and not everybody gets to meet their Twin Flame, although a lot of people do. Join Spiritual Blossom for our intimate exploration of Twin Flames. Find out what they are, how to tell if you have one, how to find yours, and what happens if you are separated from them.

Twin Flames Definition

Twin Flames Definition

 Twin Flame relationships are between two or more people who are parts of the same person. How could this happen? Nobody knows exactly why or how it happens, but it is believed that Twin Souls happen when a soul splits into more than one and the different parts reside in different bodies. This is also called Soul Splitting and having a Split Incarnation. Some people say the soul is only in one body at a time, but other people believe that a single soul can split itself between as many bodies as it wants to.

Twin Souls can be drawn to one another, but they might never meet in person. They may see one another’s lives in dreams, however. If you have especially vivid dreams that seem as if you are actually experiencing them in real life, it might be your Twin Soul’s life you are seeing. You might smell things, taste things, or experience sensations that you can’t explain, and it could be you picking up on what your Twin Flame is feeling. You might feel a strange sense of familiarity with someplace you have never been before or feel a strange sense of longing to go someplace all of the sudden. This can be your Twin Flame drawing you to them.

Twin Flame vs Soulmates

Some people call Twin Flames Soulmates, but they are completely different. A Twin Flame is somebody whose soul is basically a part of yours, but a Soulmate isn’t. Soulmates are people who we have a soul connection with, but they have a different soul than ours. Soulmates understand one another completely and feel more at peace when they are together. Some Soulmates are romantic partners, but romance is not necessary for Soulmates. A Soulmate can be a best friend, a family member, or a lover. Some people say they even have a pet who is their Soulmate!

Soulmates are the best people to talk to when you are going through a bad time, and they are the best people to share good times with as well. They know just what to say to get you to learn something, and they understand what you say and mean. They seem to come into your life at just the right moment, and they make you feel so comfortable with them, you might forget about other people when they are around. They can make you feel like they love you unconditionally, that nothing is unbearable, and that you can accomplish anything. To read about love, see here: What is the Spiritual Meaning of Love?

Do You Have a Twin Flame Connection?

Do You Have a Twin Flame Connection?

Would you like to know what questions to ask to test and see if you have met a Twin Flame? Ask yourself these following questions and if you answer yes to most or all of them, there is a strong chance you have met your Twin Flame.

Do You Have the Same Hopes and Plans?

Do you and the person who may be your Twin Flame have the same hopes, dreams, and plans as one another? Plans you did not make together? If so, it sounds like you are moving in the same direction in the world. Some things may be a coincidence. For example, in your career, the people you work with are clearly in the same career field, and some of them have the same goals you do. However, if you both want pretty much exactly the same things in every aspect of your lives, you might be Twin Flames.

Do You Have Similar Life Experiences?

Have you both shared an uncanny amount of life experiences so far? If you have been to a lot of the same places, done a lot of the same things, and even have the same hobbies and interests, that might not be a coincidence. If you both made the same choices to be in all the same places, do all the same things, and have the same experiences in life, you are choosing what another part of you has also. If you meet someone whose past experiences mirror yours almost exactly, you might be Twin Flames.

Do You Feel It?

Do you feel like this person is another part of yourself? Then they probably are. Sometimes, your heart and soul know things like this, and even if you can’t think of words to explain this, you can tell somebody is your Twin Flame. If you feel this way, it is probably true. One way people feel things is with psychic abilities. Read about the psychic gift of Clairvoyance here: What is Clairvoyant Psychic Reading? 

Do You Rarely If Ever Disagree?

Do You Rarely If Ever Disagree?

Do you ever notice how often a lot of people disagree regularly about things? Have you ever met somebody who you hardly ever disagree with at all? Getting along well with somebody is one thing, but completely harmonizing with somebody to the point you seem to be in total agreement regularly is rare. Even the people who you agree with usually have some views that are different from yours. If you meet somebody who you literally almost always agree with, they might be your Twin Flame. One sign that won’t be shy if it disagrees with you is Virgo and you can read about them here: Virgo Traits and Love Compatibility

Do You Behave Alike?

Do you act just like someone else? Sometimes people who are in the same family share a lot of behaviors, but being a Twin Flame is more. If you naturally act so much like somebody else, people think you both act like you are the same person, that is a pretty strong indicator that you might be Twin Flames. If it is both of your natural tendencies to speak, react, and even laugh the same way, you are not imitating each other. There is a deeper connection, and you might share a soul. Ne sign known for the way it behaves- and misbehaves for fun is Sagittarius, and you can read about them here: Sagittarius Traits and Love Compatibility

Do You Think Alike?

Besides acting just like each other, do you think exactly alike? Do you form the same opinions and have the same emotional responses to things? Do you both share the same beliefs? What about the way you draw conclusions? Do you both use exactly the same reasoning patterns and come to the same decisions every time? Thinking all the same things and in exactly the same ways as one another means you are most likely Twin Flames. One sign that is known for being a thinker is Gemini, and you can read about them here: Gemini Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility

Have You Come Back Together Multiple Times?

Have You Come Back Together Multiple Times?

Life separates us from the people who we love sometimes. Have you two been separated multiple times in life, but you always come back together no matter what? Does this seem to happen effortlessly as opposed through major planning and a lot of hard work to come back together? Chances are, something brings you together, and it might be your soul. If life brings you back to someone no matter what, you might be Twin Souls. One Sign that will come back to you no matter what if they love you is Cancer and you can read about them here: Cancer Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility

Do You Crave One Another When You Are Apart?

We all miss people who we love and care about, but when the person you think might be your Twin Flame is gone, it is more difficult to deal with their absence than with most people. Does it feel like part of you is missing when this person is away, and you can’t explain how much more complete you feel when you are together again? If you feel this way about each other, you might be Twin Flames. To read about an Angel Number that is all about completion see here: What is the 999 Angel Number Meaning?

Do You Make Each Other Grow?

Do the two of you manage to help one another to be your best selves, discarding negative characteristics, and strengthening positive ones? Do you call each other out when you do things you should not, and do you support one another during times of transformation? Do you cheer one another on when you are victorious and pick one another up again when you feel down? Then you might be Twin Flames.

Do You Have an Unbreakable Connection?

Have people tried to come between you, but you both refused to allow it? Has life separated you and you stayed in touch anyways? Have things and people tried with all their might to break you apart, but you both stuck it out, and your relationship is stronger than ever? Chances are you are Twin Souls, and nothing will ever separate you. Taurus is one sign that won’t let anybody push them away from the people they love and you can read about them here: Taurus Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility

How Do I Find My Twin Flame?

How Do I Find My Twin Flame?

Doesn’t it sound wonderful to be united with your Twin Flame? So, how do you go about finding them? There is good and bad news. Bad news first- there is no ascribed way to ensure that you are successfully united with a Twin Flame. However, the good news is so good, you will forget the bad news. You will not need to seek out your Twin Flame. If you are meant to be together, you will find each other when the time is right. If you feel like you have a Twin Flame and it would benefit you to meet them, simply do a quick magical operation to open yourself to messages from the universe.

Sit quietly in a comfortable position. Visualize yourself as a part of the universe, with everybody else plugged into the main source of life. Some people call this energy, other people call it god, and some people call it The Source. Whatever you believe is the main thing we all come from and are connected to each other through, see and feel your physical connection with it, and speak to it. Ask it to guide you to your Twin Flame and see your Twin Flame in your mind’s eye, connected to The Source. You are already connected. Come out of your visualization and have confidence that your Twin Flame will be introduced to you. You can also give yourself a Tarot reading about it.

Twin Flame Separation

Once you meet your Twin Flame, you might feel like you should never be separated. Sometimes, though, life has other ideas, and you might not get to decide whether you stay together or not. What do you do when you and your Twin Flame become separated? For one thing, you can have faith that you are already connected and will be brought back together. For another thing, you can maintain open communication and sharing of energy when you are apart. Simply visualize your hearts and minds connected with a single strand of energy and send your love to your Twin Flame through this. This is not the same as being together in person, but it is one way to maintain communication.

Your Twin Flame isn’t your Soulmate. They are literally a part of you. Not everybody has a Twin Flame, but if you do, you will know it the minute you meet your Twin Flame and remember you can always ask yourself the ten questions we shared if you need to make sure it is your Twin Flame. You don’t have to go on a journey to find them. You will find each other when you are meant to. If you ever find yourself separated from them, keep your energy open to them, and you might be surprised that they come back to you quickly.
