“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” Many of us know these words. However, we know little about the creation of our souls. What follows is knowledge I have acquired about this topic from different sources, and through personal experiences with my soulmates. I have tried giving some sense to the different versions I have studied, with the help of my hands-on experience. I do not consider myself an expert on the topic, and on the contrary, I still have a lot to learn. But I am sure someone out there needs to hear this version. I faithfully believe we can all arrive at the same destination taking very different routes. This said, here goes my account.
At the beginning of everything, the creator energy of the Universe (call it God, Allah, Big Bang, etc.), created our souls to its image and likeness. Being such, He/She created them containing both the feminine and the masculine aspects of spirituality. Both manifestations in one same soul: a complete being, a whole. These souls were created in groups with certain attuned characteristics between them, and a mission in common or complementary to each other.
The souls belonging to our group are our soulmates. Therefore, we do not have just one soulmate, but an infinity of them. These are people with which we are going to meet through our different incarnations to accelerate and promote our spiritual growth process. These people manifest in our lives under many different roles, not only in romantic relationships. Your soulmate might be your boyfriend or girlfriend, but it might also be your father, your sister, your son, a co-worker, your best friend, etc. Certainly, these are people with which we feel a special connection, very deep and transcendental.
How many of us have met someone for the first time and felt as if we knew this person forever? This affinity is not coincidental. You most probably just found one of your soulmates. One of the many you could encounter in the same incarnation. Sometimes, even if you do not catch it on a conscious level, at a spiritual level, your soul and your soulmate’s rejoice in the reencounter, following the separation that took place the moment we incarnated into our tridimensional reality, to which we came to learn what unconditional love is, and to find our way back to being ONE with the creating force of the universe.
Up to this point, we have referred to soulmates exclusively. How were twin flames created then? Let’s go back to the beginning, to the creation. Once we were created in our group, to have the souls incarnate in the tridimensional plane, each of them was divided in its masculine and feminine aspect. Meaning, one soul was sectioned, to call it somehow, in two: the feminine self, and the masculine self (this refers to the spiritual aspect, the being’s energy, not to its sexuality). The purpose of this division is for the same soul to be able to incarnate in two bodies at once, in two different manifestations. To be able to see the 3D world from both the feminine and masculine perspectives, which magnifies the capacity for spiritual development, and the richness of lived experiences. This way, when twin flames are ready to reunite, they will come full of a multitude of experiences that will lead them to achieve illumination through the acceptance of unconditional love.
Since our twin flame is part of ourselves, the bond is much stronger than the one we feel for our soulmates. That’s a lot to say, since I can affirm by my experience, the bond with our soulmates is one full of intense emotions. Generally, twin flames do not reincarnate at once in the same plane of existence. Remember precisely the idea of the division is to multiply the possible experiences, so most of the time, the flames will not find each other for many reincarnations.
People who have heard some about this topic but have not delved into it may tend to think of the twin flame reunion as a scene right out of a “pink” love story. Let me tell you, most of the times, it’s exactly the opposite. Our twin flame, being ourselves in the opposite spiritual manifestation (feminine or masculine), becomes a mirror in which we see ourselves reflected. You and your twin flame share the same strengths, and that attracts you immensely, but you also share the same weaknesses. When we look at ourselves in that mirror, we see everything we need to change and improve in ourselves, but we haven’t had the courage to face. That look into the soul’s mirror can be terrifying to many.
As a result, relationships between twin flames can become turbulent. There exists a strong attraction none of the parts can deny, and at the same time, there are strong collisions between them. A dynamic begins in which generally one of the flames is obsessed with the other and chases it, while the other flame gets terrified and runs away from the relationship. This is one of the phases in twin flames relationships, known as “Chaser and Runner” stage. Flames will unite and separate in multiple occasions, with the purpose of having each flame work on aspects of its spirituality that still need to be refined, to be able to reunite with the other manifestation of its soul. It is a process of growth and illumination. Because every aspect of the soul must comply with its individual mission before being ready to reunite with its flame and together, comply with their mission in common. Once the twin flames unite for good, they become a light to guide other flames into the path of illumination. With their example of unconditional love, they show the way for those who expose themselves to the beauty of their mere presence.
It is said twin flames find each other in their last reincarnation, once they are ready to finish polishing up on this tridimensional plane, and elevate to a superior plane with the whole. Until recently, it was said these encounters were few and far between, with few cases throughout the planet. However, the vibrational changes the Earth has been going through, seem to have accelerated this process, since more and more people say to be going through this purification. In fact, many support groups have popped up in social media, which try to back up those immersed in the process, which can be very painful, since our ego resists to giving up all bonds and all fears as demanded by the fulfillment of unconditional love. If you believe this is your case, seek help. Going through this process is quite hard, going through this process without even understanding what it is, is even harder. In the end, only you can face your ego and break the chains that bind you. But until you are ready to do so, your support group will be essential.
I hope this information has served as a guide to begin understanding processes you may be going through and wakes up your curiosity for exploring the answers I cannot provide you with because they are inside of you. Dare to explore your soul.
