11 Signs You've Met Your Twin Flame
Okay, I’ll admit it. I used to think the whole idea of “twin flames” was a bunch of hogwash. Yeah – the woman who talks about spirit guides and soul mates,reincarnation and energy healing thought something related to these topics sounded…a little bit (or a lot) made up. That is, until I met mine. When my world completely changed because of a simple email (and subsequent texts) from my twin flame/soul; when I connected with another person on every level in ways I never knew possible, I realized that maybe it isn’t a load of BS, after all. Sometimes we have to live something to truly believe it.
A twin flame transcends beyond just a ‘soul mate’. A soul mate is a person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings your “crap” to your attention so you can change and grow for the better. Soul work involves tackling issues, questions, problems and everything else head-on. It means not ignoring the elephant in the room or brushing things under the rug.
When you connect with a soul mate, there is the desire to work out your karmic issues in this lifetime. Soul mates can be anyone – a friend, a lover, a sibling or a child. If you enter into a romantic relationship with a soul mate in this lifetime, it’s important to do it with an open, loving heart. A soul mate tears down your barriers and awakens you on some level, revealing another layer of you.
A twin flame is a mirror of you – someone you are energetically tied to and can feel, long before you even know of their existence . It is someone you share an undeniable connection with that can be felt mind, body and soul, whether you are sitting next to each other or are miles away.
Your twin flame, or twin soul, is a person who you are destined to feel connected to on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level. Your twin flame represents your ultimate friend, lover or teacher in this life. He or she is the catalyst of your spiritual growth and the mirror of your deepest desires, needs, and fears. Your twin flame will reflect back to you all of your inner shadows, but also your deepest beauty and greatest strengths. In this way, your twin flame helps you to access tremendous emotional, psychological, and spiritual growth.
So, how do you know you’ve met your twin flame (or twin soul, whichever term you are most comfortable with) and not “just” a soul mate?
1. Instant bond
When you’ve met your twin flame/twin soul, the bond is immediate. You feel as though you’ve found the one you’ve been looking for. You find yourself instantly comfortable, as if you’ve arrived “home” in their presence. In my case, I spent most of my adult life with a distant, yet gnawing feeling that something was missing. Soon after I met my twin flame, I realized that feeling that I’d carried with me my entire life was gone. Of course, that feeling of being “at home” can also happen when you meet a soul mate. So how else can you distinguish a soul mate from a twin flame?
You are naturally telepathic with each other. You can hear each other think sometimes, and often finish each other’s sentences. You can do this whether you’re sitting next to each other in the same room or if you’re 1400 miles apart. Simply put: you are tuned into each other’s energy. You are both conscious of the other person’s emotional well-being and are empathic with one another without much (or any) effort.
3. Eye contact
Typically when we make eye contact with someone, we turn away after a few seconds. With your twin flame, you can keep eye contact for what feels like “forever” without feeling any awkwardness. They say eyes are the gateway to the soul, and because your twin flame’s soul is reflecting part of you back at you, you can easily look into their eyes for long periods of time. You may find it difficult to keep your eyes off of each other beyond just physical attraction/lust.
4. Authenticity/being your true self
When you’ve met your twin soul, you are able to be the true version of yourself – even the parts you don’t like or would never dare show to another person. You know those parts you try to hide from others for fear of being vulnerable or unwanted or rejected? You share them; you share those parts with this person without fear of rejection or judgment from them. They don’t try to change you – they accept and love you for who you are. They support your growth and journey and encourage you to be the ‘best’ version of yourself you can be without trying to change who you are to fit their own needs.
5. Unconditional love & out-of-this world passion
Typically, we reserve unconditional love for our children and pets. When you’ve found your twin flame, you find yourself loving them unconditionally, even if they haven’t “earned” it (in this lifetime). You know with conviction that you will have undying love for this person across all space and time, no matter what happens between the two of you.
The passion is mind-blowing and makes you wonder if what you felt in the past with other loves was even passion at all.
6. Shared sense of purpose
Twin souls often feel a shared purpose. As if their relationship is meant to create something or do something for the world/universe. There is a sense that you are meant to accomplish things together – that there is a purpose for your union that goes beyond just the two of you.
7. Intense emotions
Everything is intensified with your twin flame. Every emotion feels “extra” and everything you feel – good and bad – feels incredibly strong, at times overwhelming. Twin flame relationships help you work through – and remove – your baggage, and sometimes this doesn’t come easy. You may find that you feel things so deeply that sometimes it is hard to find words to describe it. But because you have that whole “finely tuned into each other” thing going on, you often don’t need words.
8. Separation of some kind
Twin flames are often separated either by distance (in my case) or have periods of time where they separate from each other because one or both isn’t ready for the relationship. Not everyone is ready to dive to the depths of their soul, to work through their “stuff” —and sometimes, no matter how our hearts feel, it is easier to run away. Typically, twin souls do have a reunion (or reunions) and come together again after a period of separation, whether by choice or by geographic location.
9. Chakra vibrations/shared energy
You may feel a vibration or a pull in one or more of your chakras – usually the heart chakra – when you are together. You can genuinely feel each other, even when you are not touching. There have been hugs I’ve shared with my twin flame where I can absolutely feel the energy exchange between our two heart chakras. It starts as a ‘tingly’ feeling in my chest and emanates warmth throughout my entire body. When you share this kind of connection with your twin soul, it is felt most intensely when you are together in the physical but you can also connect with them energetically no matter how many miles are between you.
10. Repeating numbers and patterns
You may find that certain numbers seem to “follow” you around. The numbers may be significant dates or repeated numbers/patterns. For me, these repeated pattern numbers have been 333 and 1111. These numbers may mean something significant to you, your twin soul or have new shared meaning as you come together.
11. “Knowing” you are meant to be together
Feeling of belonging together, feeling of being two halves or a part of the same being. My twin soul and I often say we are from the “same star”. Now that I have her, I no longer feel that empty gnawing I used to carry within me, but we are currently separated by distance. When you’ve met your twin soul, you will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are made for each other; there will be no questioning, no insecurities or questions about it. You will know, and you will feel as secure about each other as any two people can feel.
And that’s just it: A twin flame connection is the ultimate romantic pairing of two souls. And since I’ve met mine, I’ve discovered something else that I used to think was trite and canned that I’ve found to be true: when you know, you know.
