What Is a Twin Flame? Twin Flame Q & A by a Twin Flame Love Coach
Twin Flame. So, you’ve heard the term, and vaguely you know what it means…
And somewhere inside you, you know you want to meet yours, and with deep longing and passion! You feel your soul’s destiny: to be with the love of all loves of your life… Your Twin Flame.
But what exactly is a Twin Flame?
The term ”Twin Flame” (sometimes capitalized) was coined only several decades ago in the new age community, and brought forward into the mainstream by spiritual public figures such as Magenta Pixie who currently has nearly 6 million hits on her YouTube channel that often addresses the Twin Flame topic (click here to see the Magenta Pixie 2012 YouTube channel). “Twin flame” has certainly become a current buzz word, which fits, since 2012 is the beginning of the Twin Flame era. Well, actually, 2012 is a turning point year on many levels–it’s a period of Ascension, which is just another new-agey term referring to the big enlightening shifts going on upon our planet…all good news! During these shifts, we see the Divine Feminine coming to power. The Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine are becoming harmonized, which is why many souls feel restless. Those of us who have been doing our spiritual homework may feel ready to be with our one true beloved Twin Flame. Exciting times…! I’ve spoken about how to tell if someone is your Twin Flame in my video “How Do I Know if Someone is my Twin Flame?”… But what is the correct definition of a Twin Flame in the first place? In this article, I breifly help you navigate the definition of the term Twin Flame as well as soulmates and the difference between the two.
Though “Twin Flame” has been defined differently by different people, we new-agey love experts generally agree that Twin Flames can be defined as two people who come together vibrating at identical electromagnetic frequencies as polarized counterparts of the same soul. That was a mouthful!
In a nutshell, your Twin Flame is your one true soulmate who really is you–your same soul in a separate body. And because you are a human sexual being, your one true Twin Flame tends to be the sexiest and most likely suitable mate for you on the whole entire planet…pretty sexy and spiritual if you ask me!
What’s the difference between a soulmate and a Twin Flame?
Well, a soulmate can be just about anyone: a soulmate for business purposes, past-life karmic purposes, familial relations, romantic, teachers, etc –souls who arrive when there are lessons for each of you to be learned. Soulmates are here for your soul’s growth, and through the Law of Attraction, you meet various soulmates in divine timing for the specific lessons to be learned. If you don’t learn the intended lesson, you repeat the course, so-to-speak, with the next soulmate. This is why it can seems like the soundtrack is on repeat when it comes to love relationships sometimes! we can be slow learners, it can take a few tries or even many lifetimes. In sum, your Twin Flame is a type of soulmate, the most royal and sacred category of soulmates. There is only one Twin Flame for you, whereas there are many types of soulmates. In fact, you probably have interacted with several soulmates today already!
The Twin Flame is a mirror to your soul, one that carries the Beloved Frequencies.
Your Twin’s vibration is both the same and the polar opposite of yours, like the solid and the void existing at once to create the Zero Point. I liken it to the heat and cold coming together to create the perfect climate for growth, like the fiery sun warming the cool earth to sustain life.
When you meet your Twin Flame, you are essentially staring at your own soul, which is why the Twin Flame reunion usually happens with a feeling of deep soul recognition. Even though you are seeing this person for the first time, it feels as if you are remembering a part of yourself, like you have known them all along. In fact, this is true, on the soul level.
Why are we separated from our Twin Flame in the first place?
According to Plato’s Symposium in Greek mythology, humans were originally 2 of hearts (and 2 heads, 4 legs, etc) until Zeus began to fear the power of the combined human form, and so cut humans in half, separating them into males and females, resulting in a perpetual ache of separation and a longing to regain the completeness by finding one’s soulmate. 2500 years ago, Plato put it:
” … and when one of them meets the other half, the actual half of himself, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s sight even for a moment…”
We are separated from our Twin Flame so that we can awaken to and remember who we are. For soul growth. To know ourselves. That’s what it takes: your soul happy, balanced, and whole, so that your electromagnetic field can sing its frequency, the tune that attracts your twin. Trust me, I know it’s not easy to get there, but when you do, the whole universe is at your fingertips!
Your Twin Flame doesn’t complete you; your Twin Flame arrives when your soul realizes her wholeness.
