Signs of Soulmate and Twin Flame Encounters
"The shell of our existence here divides our being and deludes the expression of our truth but my heart knows that the illusion is as limited as our physical bodies and our love as limitless as our soul. ♥" ~Lily Belle
Soulmates and Twinflames can have many similiar signs but how do we discern the difference? For the most part I would tell you not to worry about it because all Soulmates and Twinflames are very important relationships. You will find that Soulmates are the most common while Twinflames rarely ever incarnate together at the same time. More and more though, Twinflames are finding each other presently as we prepare to assist the earth in raising the consciousness of the planet as a whole but we do that by changing our consciousness and raising our vibration FIRST. Here are a few signs:
Soulmates and Twinflames will make you feel the same type of "familiarity" between you. You will feel so comfortable with your Soulmate or Twinflame. Soulmates have an intense attraction for the Romantic types but Twinflames have an incredibly, intense attraction to each other like no other. Most of us have met at least one Soulmate. When you look into a Twinflame's eyes you have this feeling of "knowing" immediately. It's a beautiful feeling that is very difficult to describe. You may feel this incredible love around you like you are being surrounded by angels.
Soulmate relationships can be best friends and lovers, even family members but as a Romantic partner, a Soulmate will have a lot in common with you and equally alot different. Normally Soulmates come in different aspects of our path to support us on our spiritual journey to learn and present a lot of challenges. Many times we have difficulty facing those challenges with our Soulmates as they are most times fueled by past Karma or conflicts within us that our Soulmates cause us to face. Soulmates bring some aspect that we need to address head on but we always have a choice to do that or walk away. Typically we tend to navigate Soulmate relationships more on "conditional" love but through them we become more tolerant [in life] which leads to more acceptance and forgiveness as we grow and move forward in life and crosspaths with others. The Soulmate connection really never goes away either and it's that connection that forges changes so subtley that we may not realize it immediately.
Some believe thatTwinflames come to us with no karma. I think there are many different theories out there. Personally, I say that we are seeing more of these connections coming together to help raise the vibration at a faster rate and so they are not typically "ready" spiritually. The Twinflame encounter will toss one into facing all that needs to be dealt with before the work on humanity can be initated. With that said, I am also learning that as we work on self , we are also simultaneously helping our Twinflames work on self.
Twinflames are a mirror image of each other but you may notice also that with the commonalities that are many, you will also be on opposite ends of the spectrum in some areas of your life. That is to help you both find balance in those areas. For instance, I use my right hemisphere of my brain to gauge my life more and my TF uses his left hemisphere more. He is the analytical type and I am always in the emotions/heart/intuition side of the house. Two extremes.
If both TF are not spiritually ready they will face many obstacles to be together. First, it may be difficult to face yourself if you haven't worked out all of your "skeletons" within yourself. To see your partner, aka yourself, you may find that you begin to face many hard lessons and even begin to feel you can not carry on with this relationship. In this process though, YOU WILL realize this is about your personal growth and your drive to change is motivated by that unconditional love and the desire to be with your Twinflame. At this point, your spiritual growth becomes a CONSCIOUS one whereas your past exchanges with Soulmates are not always.
The other signal, though, of Twinflames is that it is a very difficult connection to detach from. Soulmates have a similiar and very intense connection that is hard to walk away from but Twinflames will suffer intensely from this separation until at least they find comfort in that they are always connected, as we all are through our hearts and so no matter if they are together physically they can still work together toward ONE.
Sometimes the Twinflame connection will feel like a push/pull routine as you may have long periods of separation, or cessation of communication, only to come back together with more love. The major theme here is unconditional love. You will find that more than any other time you will just realize the deep love you have for the other although your external circumstances may force you apart. Still, you are clearly held together by love.
ManyTwinflames report other obstacles such as distance, marital status, significant age difference and other conflicting circumstances that force the two to remove ego and many patterns of thinking they previously thought were right.
Finally, a Twinflame involvement causes you to lose your time and space. What seems like minutes turn into hours. Twinflames have to learn how to balance their Quantum Connection with their 3-D existence.
