Everyone has a soul mate and a twin flame. Soul mates are those people who you resonate with at a very deep level. Meeting a soul mate for the first time will give you a sense of familiarity and there is usually a strong attraction. If you believe in reincarnation, soul mates are part of your soul family who incarnate as different people: father, mother, brother, sister, husband, wife, lover or friend. They are people who help resolve karmic issues with you. You have more than one soul mate and they are in your life to help you learn lessons so you may become wise and powerful.
A twin flame is your other half. It is one soul that has been polarized into the male and female halves. It is the human template as exemplified by Eve being created from Adam as his perfect mate. According to tradition, your other half is usually on the other side helping you with earthly tasks, trials and tribulations. They are your dearest guardian angel, lifting you up when you are down, giving you strength, hope and direction when you are feeling lost or alone. The closest phenomenon we know to this experience is the birth of identical twins. They have a close telepathic relationship and their lives parallel accordingly. The quest for our true twin soul is a need driven by a deep unconscious love and longing imprinted in all of us. It is the story myths are made of. Increasingly more and more twin flames are being born at the same time in the appropriate sexes and ages to have relationships. They are connecting at this time in history because they can manifest a very powerful form of unconditional love for each other that can help speed up the planet's spiritual growth. Unconditional love means the ability to forgive each other and forgiveness dissolves karmic bonds. Helping these twins to find one another and connect in a meaningful way is important for this love to grow – and there seem to be hundreds coming forward. The recent Venus retrogrades (the first in 2004 and the second in 2012) has accelerated our consciousness of this phenomenon.
Carl Jung's concept of the male and female halves is much like the taiji symbol, there is a little bit of feminine in the masculine and vice versa for balance, his famous "anima" and "animus". We also understand the importance of balancing yin (feminine) and yang (masculine) aspects not only within our own personalities, but also in a relationship. For example if a couple are both arguing with each other, they are both yang or "active" and usually nothing gets resolved because neither one is listening. If one person is yin (receptive) while the other is yang or speaking, then information can be absorbed. They can switch polarities as needed so each can speak and be heard, but one always needs to be the opposite polarity for best results. In this way there is balance and progress.
All people have a twin flame and if you wish to find or work with yours, there are prayers that can help. If your twin is not incarnate, you can work with your twin soul through your current soul mate relationship to manifest unconditional love and this will improve your relationships. One very important skill to develop is to learn to listen to your partner without judgment – and this is not as easy as it sounds. We all want and need to feel accepted, but listening without judgment means to rest our personal needs and feelings momentarily. We must learn to help and support each other through this important human experience. Unconditional love means you always love the person even if they do something upsetting.
Do you know someone who has had a relationship that starts and stops a lot, is intense, but also painful and difficult, yet this person can not give the other up easily? If you do, then they may be twin flames. There are ways to speed up the process of joining in harmony– and counseling by an experienced guide can be extremely valuable. Because each twin has free will, one can deny the union because the emotional aspect can be too overwhelming. All issues need to come up for healing and this is what can cause the relationship to be so difficult and lengthy. Often too one twin may still be entrenched in other karmic relationships.
