Twin flame, soulmate, finding ‘the one’, these are all highly romantic ideas, but what do they actually mean? Who should you really be with your twin flame or your soulmate?

What soulmates and twin flames actually are..

Soulmates are people who come from the same energy source while twin flames are two halves of the same soul. Each being has it a unique purpose and motivation for incarnating on earth and finding either their other half or attracting a soul mate. You only have one twin flame, but you may meet several soulmates.

A soulmate shares the same energy as you and is vibrationally aligned to your life purpose. They are earthy, grounded relationships that inspire you to become a better person and realise your potential. Prior to incarnation on earth, we carefully select soulmate contracts which will best support our emotional, mental and spiritual evolution.

Think about the people in your life that you have had the most meaningful connections with, they could be a former lover, teacher or friend. The relationship may not have been a positive experience, they might be the definition of ‘whatever doesn’t kill me makes me stronger’, a person who shook up your whole world and forever altered your perspective, a blue beard that awakened you to the world.

For better or worse, this is someone with whom you have a deep spiritual connection and has been contracted to help you do your soul work. Unlike a twin flame, you can have several soulmates over the course of a lifetime.

A soulmate can be the love of your life, your best friend or a guide who comes into your life at just the right time. They will create opportunities for you to grow, it’s connection designed to improve your inner world.

Twin flames come together for an entirely different purpose. They are a single soul that was split during the birth of consciousness to make two distinct beings. Unlike soulmates, twin flames can only ever have one other person as there counterpart, and that is the person who shares the same soul material.

When a soul is split, the two beings may incarnate many times before they are united. When they do come together, it’s to raise the vibration and consciousness of the planet. Twin flames are on a higher cosmic level, they have a strong desire to create something together that will benefit the earth.

A twin flame relationship is a high-level spiritual love connection designed to radically transforms the individuals on a mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and cosmic level. For this reason, the relationship often causes an existential earthquake, irrevocably altering the consciousness of both individuals.

At the same time, twin flames also experience a profound feeling of wholeness, love and joy. When a twin flame relationship has achieved a state of harmony, their work will move from this dimension to the spiritual realm through ascension.

  1. Wow!!! Now I understand alot more. Honestly I don’t have a problem with Medium Maria. She seems to care about my situation. I have been with her now for 4 or five yrs now. My only problem is that I believe in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. What’s your opinion on this? Someone please get back with me on this.

    Thank you,
