Since ancient times there has been a belief in the spiritual world that the Age of Aquarius (the current or forthcoming astrological age depending upon the method of calculation) will prove to be an era of awakening of the soul and spiritual enlightenment. The concept of twin flame or twin souls explains a very strong connection felt between two souls. The twin soul is the other half of the soul that went its separate way after being split. This concept is not for everyone, and some are born as complete individuals and will not find anything amiss in their life. But twins will always find life to be incomplete without 'the one' they desire. A lovely bond exists between these two souls that goes beyond words. This is where stories of eternal love come from.
How many times have you used the term 'twin' in banter to tell someone how similar the two of you are? Chances are, this person may be your twin flame after all. Reincarnations happen over lifetimes and each time, the two souls will feel a powerful longing for each other. They may or may not unite on the physical plane as one but nothing can stop the soul from merging with its twin. It's as essential to the soul as the air we breathe to survive.
The last thing you will associate with a Twin Flame relationship is the word 'easy'. As per Linda Goodman's astrology book Star Signs, a Venus conjunct Pluto aspect in the synastry reading of two people is an indicator of a twin flame connection.
There are several stages that a Twin Flame relationship goes through:
Whenever you are ready to meet your twin flame the Universe will show you signs that perfect love is possible after all. Karmic relationships with devastating ends that taught you hard lessons will make you desire the one who’s meant for you.
The first meeting
Coincidences will surround the first meeting between two twin souls and it will be unexpected and unusual, where and how you meet. You will recognize each other at a soul level and will be stunned by how similar your likes and dislikes are. It’s like looking at a reflection of you. You may not belong to the same age group, same city, or culture but you will notice how uncannily similar your major life events are. The meeting will help you heal and accelerate the process of spiritual enlightenment.
You fall for your twin
The initial attraction is an all-consuming one and the joy of meeting your twin will make you feel ecstatic. You feel happier than ever before and become aware of yourself. You will try to resist this bond by trying to rationalize it in your head, but you will fall anyway hook, line and sinker.
The bond develops at a very fast rate and you feel like you have known this person all your life and you finish each other's sentences and are even able to know what the other is thinking on a sub conscious level. There is no place for lies or deception in this relationship, as there's nothing in the world you can hide from your twin. You will find yourself sharing a part of you that you have never in your wildest dreams thought you'd share with anyone.
Resolving your Karma
If one or both twins have not resolved their Karma yet, a period of separation is possible. One of them will become the runner and one will be the chaser. In most cases, it is the man who runs and the woman who chases. But there are instances of women running away from such a bond too. The intensity is unbearable and the process of cleansing is a painful one. The runner knows he loves her deeply, but he still decides to run for reasons unknown to him. Not all are spiritually enlightened enough to understand what's happening to them and why their life comes to a stop upon meeting this person who seems to be always in the back of their mind. Even when you try to keep yourself distracted, you never stop feeling the connection with your twin.
This is a very painful phase at the human level. The chaser is heartbroken and cannot believe that the runner has left her alone and walked away from such a perfect relationship. She tries to make sense of his behavior but she finds no answer. She runs after him and tries to make him see how perfect life can be, but it's all in vain. The more she tries to win him back, the further away he will run from her. He never stops loving her, not even for a moment, but doubts will creep in and he fears the loss above all. He worries about the eventual heartbreak and runs away to experience what he has known as normalcy all his life. During this phase, he may even try to forget her by forming new bonds with other people but in the end, nothing will satisfy him as deeply as the passionate and unconditional love of his twin.
The running continues for a long time and may even last years or the reunion may not happen in this lifetime. It all depends upon how soon both these twins resolve their individual karma by letting go of past residue.
Very rarely, twin flames do meet in the physical plane and this is when they decide to get married and start their life together to achieve a higher purpose. Twin souls are said to have taken birth to work for some higher cause and there’s more to this relationship than the fairytale romance. Both partners have to be spiritually enlightened in order to meet in this lifetime.
Those who do meet their twin soul can experience love in its most glorious form. It’s sacred and it’s the kind that never fades. You understand each other on all levels. Your physical chemistry with your twin is unmatched by anything you have ever experienced before. You may experience a Kundalini awakening when you make love to your twin, and your heart chakra will open up and this is only the beginning of eternal bliss.
