What is a Twin Flame or Twin Soul?

Earlier today, I wrote about Twin Flame without really explaining what Twin Flames actually are. I will be quoting this from Isisjade as I feel they have written it in a very understandable form. They also have other articles concerning Twin Flames.

The twin soul/twin flame is a split energetic form that separates into yin and yang versions of itself. That yin/yang version spends many lifetimes looking for and discovering aspects of itself through connections with countless soulmates. Soulmates are soul contracts we enter into prior to incarnation – they are often people who have lessons to teach us, often painful lessons, along with karmic debt we must repay. When that debt has been repaid – the relationship and contract comes to an end. At that time so do our relationships. And it is time for the next one to unfold.

 

Often you meet your twin flame just as you are about to end a soul contract with another. In fact, it almost always happens at about that time. And for a time, you’ll find yourself struggling for awhile between upholding a dead contract and evolving yourself to embody the twin flame that is asking for you to journey with them.

Your twin flame – your twin soul – this is the heart that beats as one that has been split in two. These twins match each other in energetic resonance, match each other’s ambition, motivation, drive and recognize each other in a split second, even if they can’t name what they recognize about the other. Their energy diminishes when not together, and when together they expand and energize not just the room but their entire corner of the universe. They heal each other, they evolve one another, they take each other’s lessons as their own. They are dynamic. They recognize their one-ness.  They feed off one another and nourish one another.

The twin flame doesn’t fear the other in an energetic sense. There is an instant recognition of familiarity and mutual trust. There is no sense of jealousy or hate, nor fear with this person. It’s an innate and instant feeling of “at last I’ve found you”. As if you will ever be watched over and looked after now that you’ve found the other. Even if you are not together as you wish you could be, you are happy for the now, just to be connected and reunited again, and often very impatient to transform the world so you can be together. Often times you are split up throughout the course of your life and you find your resolve to reconnect is tested again and again. But you will eventually find the step that is in tune with the other.

The twin flame – twin soul isn’t just a sexual or romantic entanglement like so many people will have you believe. It goes much deeper than that. Every minute spent with that person is a minute where you learn more about yourself. Time stops when you are with them. You don’t have to speak to be together. You simply talk without verbal language. In fact everything stops when you set eyes upon each other, until you decide to resume the physical world again.

Your limits, your strengths, your weaknesses are perfectly reflected in that other person. That person reflects everything that the universe believes of you –  to you. They only ask you questions in an attempt to embolden you, to teach you, to mentor you to guide you or to seek your wisdom and strength. You may find they’ve suffered from a mysterious back pain from the day you had a serious accident. You may discover she’s had a mysterious allergy and find you have had a weakness or intolerance to a food. You find yourself ill when she’s ill, tired when he’s tired.

You are strong where she is weak. You are limited where she seems boundless. You see in her the pure unconditional love that reaches for you daily, that spurs you on to grow, to challenge yourself, to deepen yourself, to better yourself, and you have this unfettered desire to help her better herself, to challenge her, to reach for her, to help her grow.

This is true love. Not the paradigm of love we have longed believed in. This love is eternal, Unconditional. All encompassing.  Not raging, not consuming, not filled with a passion that quickly turns to anger or fear.

It is a pure love that only hopes and wishes for the best for the other in all they do. With you, or without you. Because once the connection has been made between twin flames, nothing can sever it.

Remember, the twin flame relationship doesn’t have anything to do with male/female traditional relationships. Your twin flame can choose to incarnate in any sexual entity she or he wishes. That’s part of the openness about twin flames. You accept each other for the pure and perfect being you see in the other.

After today’s research, I’ve found out that more often than not there is a certain pattern that Twin Flames might follow.

 

Stage 1:  Recognition and Temporary Spiritual Awakening

Characteristics of Stage 1:
Both Twins recognize one another at the soul level and feel as if they have met before.  Synchronious events surround the union.  The heart chakras open and both souls quickly merge into a third unified energy.  Both Twins experience an acceleration of spiritual understanding.

The purpose of the Recognition and Temporary Spiritual Awakening Stage:
To activate the memory of each soul’s life mission and to help awaken each Twin to higher levels of consciousness.

 

Stage 2:  Testing

Characteristics of Stage 2:
The initial temporary spiritual awakening (illumination) fades. The ego (“little self”) begins to re-emerge.  One or both Twins may attempt to fit the relationship into the “old model” of Love, couplehood and relationship as it relates to their ego desires and learned belief system.  Inner conflict arises.  Twins ruminate on what they were taught to believe their beloved “should be” and how relationships are supposed to serve them.

Both Twins feel simultaneously inspired and toppled by the power of the union.
Doubts creep in making one or both Twins begin to view their beloved critically or suspiciously.

The purpose of the Testing stage:
To cause outdated mental concepts about relationships to rise to the surface to be cleared.

 

Stage 3:  Crisis

Characteristics of Stage 3:
The crisis of the Twin is realizing they must reject their egoic beliefs about Love relationships or reject their beloved.  Having to shed “little self” or identity-based beliefs and desires to embrace a higher expression of Love can lead to stubbornness and anxiety.  Fear can take hold, triggering many dysfunctional emotional patterns.  In staying present with the patterns, they can be witnessed and released.

Despite fears, both Twins naturally come together in cycles for bonding, confession, forgiveness and Lovemaking.  These rituals cement higher levels of consciousness into the energy fields of both Twins.

The purpose of the Crisis stage:
To provide opportunities for the healing and maturing of the mental and emotional bodies.

 

Stage 4:  The Runner Dynamic

Characteristics of Stage 4:
The human ego naturally fears annihilation in the face of the Unified Consciousness encoded inside the Twin Flame Union.  The pain body rises up and old ego survival mechanisms or “bottom of the barrel” emotional and mental patterns like defiance, resistance, manipulation, anger, punishing and judgment arise.

One or both Twins become emotionally and mentally flooded with deep pain from what feels like soul-level rejection and abandonment.  The unbearable soul-level pain leads one or both Twins to withdraw physically and block communication in fear and futility.  One or both Twins may unsuccessfully try to re-create the original unified harmony.

The purpose of the Runner Dynamic:
To propel both individuals towards the Creator/God/Universe for healing and maturation of the spiritual body.

NOTE:  The temptation to engage in ego battle or withdrawal is very seductive and difficult for many to resist, which is why many Twins never reach Surrender, Radiance or Harmony.

Remember, there is no room for judgment in Twin Soul pairings. Each soul learns from much walking its own path and choosing through its own will.  Your non-attached loving thoughts will be felt by your beloved in the subconscious, keeping them strong.

 

 

Stage 5:  Surrender

Characteristics of Stage 5: 
The direction and outcome of the relationship is surrendered to the Creator/God/Universe in full faith and trust that the Union is under Divine Protection.  It is accepted that what is best and destined for the final physical harmonizing will transpire in its own time. (Both Twins must reach Illumination in order to harmonize in the physical)

The “Runner” Twin is allowed the space and freedom to choose to evolve at their own pace in their own way.  At this stage, the frequency of compassion returns and maintains itself.  The Surrendered Twin holds a heart space for their beloved while fully exploring life on the way to becoming an Illuminated human.  This may be a time of channeling Unconditional Love into art, music, writing, teaching, active service or some other creative outlet.

Purpose of the Surrender stage:
To help each soul release the ego, develop regular communication with  the Creator/God/Universe and demonstrate their full trust to do what is best and when.

 

 

Stage 6:  Self Realization, Illumination, Radiance

Characteristics of Stage 6: 
The ego or “little self” dies and the Universal energy takes over the body.  This leads to a complete spiritual awakening, arriving at one’s fully awakened divinity. This is the stage of radiating Divine Love rather than seeking romantic Love.

At this stage, the surrendered Twin’s emotional, mental and spiritual bodies arrive at full maturity.  New creativity and healing abilities arise, which are put in service to assist others.
Purpose of the Radiance stage:
To establish an outward flow of Divine Love through one’s body and works, which vibrates at a level that uplifts humanity.
Stage 7:  Harmonizing
Characteristics of Stage 7:
By this stage both Twins have awakened.  They come together in the physical to assimilate their newly evolved energies, flowing into the new dynamic of their Unified Potential.  Both Twins integrate fully into the third energy of Unconditional Love in a way that influences others towards their own heart opening.
Purpose of the Harmonizing stage:
To fulfill the intended mission of the Twin Flame Union.
**Twin Flame relationships come into your life to help mold you to embody the vibration of Unconditional Love.**

Where do I fit in?

There’s something that has been on my mind for a minute now. I keep  researching it over and over again. It keeps coming back to me, in one form or another.

 

I first got acquainted with the concept of Twin Souls or Twin Flames a couple of years ago. A thought he had met his a few times. He was longing to find his before I knew anything about it. Last summer however, I realized I’ve been looking for my Twin as well. For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt as if I don’t belong. I’ve felt as if I was supposed to be a twin to someone but I wasn’t born as such. I realized that when A had a dream where he saw a reflection of me, but she wasn’t exactly me. Then all of a sudden it’s like everything fit into place. Since then, I’ve been trying to find my Twin. I’ve been trying to put things together as to where they might be, who they might be, etc. I now realize that this no longer important. I’m learning to communicate on another level, on an energy level where you don’t need words. Once when I meditated, I got a door shut to my face, and said ‘what are you doing here? You’re not supposed to be here!’ I couldn’t breathe, I felt as if I was about fall from the stool that was already on the ground. Having A as my narrator, he started to wake me up and before he even got to 2, we heard a clear knocking, knock-knock-knock. We thought it couldn’t be anyone on our doorstep as it was already so late. He came back upstairs. There was the knock again, knock-knock-knock, the same one. A got a bit spooked, I knew it wasn’t anything bad as I didn’t feel any negative vibes. Since that try, I haven’t tried to meditate again. It got me off my game for awhile.

 

 

A, however, found his Twin Flame awhile back. I had to give him his distance to get to know more about this person and what their dynamics are in this dimension/lifetime. I did just that. Through this process, it has put me in a little bit of a weird situation, more so than anyone else, I can tune into this person’s emotions quite well. I start feeling what they’re feeling, and more often than not tears start falling down my cheek. Being an empath, is not always easy. Mind you, I don’t know this person all that well, I’ve only had one time being alone with them. It surprises me every time I feel their somewhat suppressed energies.

 

Something stings inside me when I think of their relationship. Although it is not the easiest, at least they fully well know each other. Since last year, I’ve been desperately wanting to get to know mine – even if it’d mean hard work or looking in the mirror, and seeing your own faults/insecurities. What do I still have to learn that is keeping me from meeting my long-lost Twin? I’ve stopped obsessing about this but at times it comes and bothers me. Universe has been very generous with me and provided almost everything I’ve asked, and for that I’m humbled, grateful and appreciative!! Above all, I just want to meet mine, and I hope this will happen sooner than later.

 

Being on the hunt for something has taken a lot of patience on my part. I’m not usually the most patient person. Even though it feels like a lifetime of finding her, it has really been a nano second in the Universal consciousness. I can get quite frustrated when I find out something new about her, the situation, or whatever. It is only just a new piece of information that I don’t know what to do about it. However, I feel that I will soon find her as I feel myself working on myself, preparing for when we can actually meet up.

 

I keep getting that I should not focus too much on finding my Twin but rather working on myself. I will find her when I’m ready, when we’re both ready. I know I’ve been attracted to the Caribbean islands/Polynesia mainly because of her. There is something about that, and I keep getting assurance of that. Now fear and worry kicks in when I think of how on earth would I ever even be able to afford to go to Tahiti! As always, it is not up to me – well not totally, I still need to and should work on myself – but to the Universe. It has provided so many things for me so far. I should just surrender to its will and know that everything will be provided for me when the time is right.

New Moon in June

I haven’t really paid attention to astrology or the phases of the moon until I think this year. The moon has started to  play a big part in my life. I’m one of the many people the moon has an affect on. Last month, Venus was in front of the moon and it was spectacular. I completely missed out on that! However, as the New Moon comes about this month, in just a couple of hours, I’ve been researching about it. I found this great article via 2012: What’s the real ‘truth’?

 

Gemini New Moon … June 19, 2012

We are on the threshold of a spiritual revolution, near the close of a 26,000 year cycle. The ancient peoples knew this time would come and left encrypted messages hidden within mythological tales and sacred sites. This New Moon in Gemini opposes the Galactic Center at 27 degrees Sagittarius, where there is said to be access to multidimensional and parallel universes, where the source of all life exists and everything is pure light.

The New Moon peaks hours before the summer solstice (June 20) which functions as an energetic gateway for the Light. The close alignment with the Galactic Center produces a wider portal for a celestial download, helping us to grasp things that are normally beyond our field of perception, and offering the potential for a quantum leap in the consciousness of humanity.

Gemini underlines the necessity of duality for consciousness to exist. The Gemini Twins were originally depicted as male and female, symbolic of the unity and interplay of all dualities, yin/yang, light/dark, within the great wheel of life. Chinese and Hindu zodiacs still indicate Gemini with a woman and a man. The glyph of Gemini represents the two pillars that stand erect at the entrance of the ancient Sun Temple, leading from one state of consciousness to another and through which the soul must pass in order to receive initiation. These two pillars, the eternal pair of opposites, represent the two faces of the Divine that connect heaven and earth within our consciousness. Both must be acknowledged equally ….. the physical masculine pertaining to the intellect, and the spiritual feminine pertaining to the intuition …. requiring us always to maintain our center.

The glyph of Gemini in its most obvious interpretation is the Roman numeral two. The parallel columns being connected top and bottom, graphically indicate the highest expression of Gemini, the ability to link opposite forces, to combine and balance the attributes of the rational mind with the higher energies of the intuitive faculty (opposite sign, Sagittarius). Our physical and spiritual powers are interdependent, one being unable to survive without the other.

 “The dual mind of man must be developed to its full capacity, both the conscious earthly mind and the superconscious mind in the heart that has access to the temples of wisdom.” White Eagle

Gemini is also associated with the pairs of the body, our two eyes, ears, hands and the left and right sides of the brain, the parts of our physiology most linked with perception. Out of the opposites and through their inward reunion, all new things emerge. In the New Age, thanks to a growing recognition of the importance of the feminine, new insights and a rising of the consciousness of humanity will come

“One of the most important issues confronting us in this coming age is the reemergence of the feminine and its balancing with the masculine.” Alice O. Howell

Our personal and global challenges can only be resolved through a radical shift in consciousness. This New Moon in Gemini opens our eyes to broader perspectives and urges us to know and live our truth. It encourages us to develop and use all forms of intelligence, especially the intuition, the wisdom that comes from the heart, in the spirit of brotherhood and love.  

Where this New Moon at 29 degrees Gemini falls in our charts we are developing intellectual strength and the ability to effectively carry out the message of our hearts. As we listen to our inner voice, our direction is clear. As we center our thoughts, we can pursue our soul mission and achieve great things. With heart and mind in balance, we can each cast our line afresh into the ocean of possibilities and bring into being a Golden Age of unity and peace.

The Sabian symbol for the New Moon at 29 degrees Gemini: “The first mockingbird of spring; the creative exuberance of the human soul in response to basic life experiences.”

The mockingbird responds to life by singing a spontaneous, joyous, melody which enriches our existence on Planet Earth. Are we likewise responding to our earth plane experiences from the creative center of our being? As we do so we are an inspiration to others and contribute to the happiness of those with whom we tread life’s path.

“Each one of us is just a visitor to this planet, a guest, who will only stay for a limited time. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time alone, unhappy or in conflict with our friends and companions? Far better, surely, to use our short time here in living a meaningful life, enriched by our sense of connection with others and being of service to them.” Dalai Lama

Heather Threlfall … June, 2012    [email protected]

 

What caught my eyes the most, was the mockingbirds.  Mockingbirds have many meanings and aspects to them, depending on the culture you’re looking from.  All seem to agree that mockingbirds are imitators, mimicking other birds’ behavior. Some, mockingbird may also have the meaning of Joyfulness, Gratitude, Cleverness, Intelligence, Playfullness, Protection, Security, Communication. In Native American beliefs, mockingbirds just like any other bird, are messengers from the Great Spirit.

As the New Moon rises, the symbol of mockingbird may the reminder of what you are attracting or mirroring.

 

In another article, I found out that this New Moon will bring out our inner artists, full of creative force. Creativity, can be in any shape or form – even in the kitchen! If you combine it with the mockingbird, where the mockingbird is like a post-modern collage artist, taking samples from around it and creating something original of its own.

“No ideas are truly original, since the best artists are channels. We are all mocking birds, recycling and regenerating ancient wisdom for modern minds, so there is no need for jealousy. No egos, no leaders and no saviors.”

 

Inspiration is everywhere, you may take a piece here, another there, third one somewhere else and mix them all together and you will create something new of your own. I’ve realized that this is at least how I work – I can get inspired something as little as a fabric of a chair to something as big as the sky or a color, even the wind, which will inspire me to create something new.

 

 

Last thought of mine about this New Moon, it seems that duality and number 2 is ever present in this Moon again. Awhile ago, I posted about the subject, it seems that it still continues to be part of my life. As I’ve been reading about it, I immediately started thinking of Twin Flames or Twin Souls. This is something I’ve been searching about, reading about, yearning to learn and know about it.. eventually meeting mine. This will be a topic for another post.
