Abstract image of soulmate lovers embracingThe term 'soul mate' and 'twin soul' are often used synonymously and there is much confusion betweem the two. A soul mate and a twin soul (twinflame) are two different concepts. Throughout a lifetime one has many soulmates, but throughout eternity, one has only one twinsoul or 'twinflame'. 


Throughout our lives we will have many soulmates. A soulmate relationship can take many different forms such as that of a good friend, a family member, a romantic partner, or even a co-worker. Brief encounters with strangers who inspire us or help us in some way can also be soulmates who we are meant to cross paths with. 

The reason for establshing the relationship and the conditions surrounding the meeting is usually predetermined prior to birth. It is the Law of Karma that brings the soulmates together. These relationships exist in order to to help us grow and learn important lessons by balancing the karmic ties that have binded you together through other lifetimes. We may incarnate at the same time as many of our karmic soulmates in multiple lifetimes until the energies are balanced. 

Soulmates can impact our lives in many ways and the relationship can sometimes end abruptly if the karma can not be resolved or if new karmic ties are created. You may indeed meet them again in another lifetime to resolve any issues, sometimes even reversing relationship roles. Through our interactions and relationships with others we learn more about who we are. Karmic relationships give us the opportunity to grow. 


Twin flames, also called twin souls and twin rays, is 'one soul' that was split into two souls. Twinflames are often referred to as being the other half of ones own soul. This does not imply that each twin is only half of a soul on earth, for each individual soul is already whole. What a Twin Flame does imply is that at one time, the two individual souls were one.

We each have only one twin. In the beginning, the One soul was split into two and each went their separate ways. Each twin may continue to re-incarnate into the physical realm over and over to gather human experience and to balance karma with soulmates before being re-united with the other half of their over-soul in a lifetime. Eventually, the twinflames will merge back into the One soul that they were before the split into the two twin souls. The early stages of this reunion usually happens in both of their last lifetimes on the planet so they can complete the Ascension process together.

They're in each other all along" ~rumi

Each twin is a complete soul, not half a soul. It is their task to become more whole, balancing their female and male sides (masculine and feminine energies), and ideally become enlightened, before reuniting with their twin. This reunion is of two complete and whole beings. All other relationships through all our lives could be said to be "practice" for the twin, the ultimate relationship. The Twin Flame connection is an the ultimate Alchemical Marriage


Heart shaped candle with twin flamesMost people mistake a soulmate for a twinflame, or vice versa. The feeling of deep or natural affinity, similarity, love, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, or compatibility are often signs of a soulmate connection, but these dynamics can also be intense in a twinflame connection. The twinflame connection should not be romantically idealized. At its spiritual heart it is a Divine and Unconditional love that that is extended from Source and exists beyond the physical. The more ego that is involve the less harmonious it will be.

When our twin soul is incarnated on earth at the same time as we are, usually they are not an ideal mate for a long term romantic relationship unless much of the spiritual inner work has been completed by both of twins prior to meeting, and continuously while together. The twinflame relationship can be heaven on earth or complete chaos.

Although in the past it has been rare for twinflames to be incarnate on earth at the same time, this will become more common as the consciousness of humanity ascends as a whole. When both twins are not incarnated together, one twin is usually in physical experience while the other is in non-physical, often acting as a guide or caretaker to their embodied twin on earth. No matter what the distance between two twin souls may be, they are always connected, always a part of one another.

Your twinflame is literally your 'other half' and embodies everything you are on a higher soul level. On the level of personality, they usually reflect everything you do not like about your self. Twinflames are each other's mirror and often on a subconscious level. It is not always easy to face one's self honestly in all aspects, negative and positive. To live harmoniously with your twinflame you have to be very comfortable with your self for a romantic relationship to work.

There can be several challenges in Twin Flame Relationships for many reasons. Problems in Twin flame connections can be anything from age difference, being in different locations, one twin is already commited in a soulmate relationship, and often one or both twins will have serious issues and may be afraid to open up the energy of the twinflame connection because the bond is too intense on many levels if one has not completed much inner spiritual work prior to the meeting.
