Have you ever met someone and instantly felt a connection to them?
You find yourself thinking about them, agreeing with them, wondering what they are doing, and enjoying every second that you are together – it’s an intense kind of relationship and one that many people don’t have the chance to experience.
It’s called a twin flame relationship, and unlike the more traditional idea of a soul mate, twin flame relationships are built on the give and take, hot and cold, black and white or a relationship rather than the similarities between two people that are often more common in relationships.
Twin Flame relationships are characterized by many things, so before we get to the 25 signs that you might be in a twin flame relationship, let’s talk about the 4 important elements that underpin this amazing relationship.
The 4 most important elements of a twin flame relationship
The meeting of twin flames brings an instant, intuitive feeling of connection and of “coming home”.
There is an undeniable, overwhelming feeling that they have been brought together as part of a higher calling.
The early stages of twin flame unions may be filled with turmoil, challenges, and pain as the two work to merge and balance their energies.
This powerful, magnetic connection may cause partners to separate for a short time to heal and address old wounds, all the while knowing that separation is an illusion and their connection and shared energy will keep them linked regardless of physical space.
Once equilibrium is reached, twin flames will experience the most loving, transformational partnership imaginable, with a deep connection emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
It’s different from a kindred spirit.
In order for the higher calling of a twin flame union to occur and function properly, those four elements need to be addressed and balanced:
1) Deep Emotional Connection
By attuning to the heart center, the epicentre of knowing, thinking, and feeling twin flames can telepathically receive the loving bond and comforting reassurances of their connection.
Research at the Institute of Heartmath supports these findings based on studies involving the bond between mother and child.
Simply being close to her baby can induce a mother’s brainwaves to synchronize with her child’s heartbeat, which in turn makes her more attune to the electromagnetic vibrations emitting from her child.
Twin flames experience this same type of exchange of energy, and in some cases, are energetic mirror opposites of each other.
This reflection of their flaws or faults may feel negative at first but is in fact deeply positive and can lead to some important healing breakthroughs.
They may find themselves loving deeper and harder than they previously thought possible. The vulnerability needed for such a connection takes courage, since hidden emotions or unhealed wounds may come to light before real healing can begin.
Once this sometimes-difficult work is done, and a deep emotional connection is solidified, twin flames will begin experiencing an unsurpassed form of pure love.
2) Mental Connection
Twin flames may at times feel like they are the only two people in the universe, their connection runs so deep and their conversations can become so intense and electrically- charged when they connect that everything else can fall away.
Genuine interest in each other and a shared passion will contribute to a deep mentally stimulating relationship where their vibes align and lift each other up.
Alternatively, they may appear to be opposites.
In this case, twin flames may have complimentary skill sets and talents that combine perfectly to give them the strength, courage, and confidence to achieve balance and use their enhanced abilities to complete their goals and reach for their dreams.
3) Physical Connection
Upon their first meeting, twin flames may realize they are radiating energy on the same frequency which causes not only a powerful physical attraction, but a feeling of oneness.
Kundalini energy, stored at the base of the spine, may be released when a connection is made, this awakening energy may cause twin flames to see themselves in a new light and begin to become more aware of their faults and flaws.
This deep awareness and questioning soul journey may result in these partners separating while they complete their healing soul work.
Once they have broken their cycles of dysfunctional behaviour, they can reunite in a permanent sacred union.
Physical attraction alone is not enough to result in or define a twin flame connection, there must be an exchange of energy and blissful awareness of presence.
While the physical connection isn’t based purely on sexual attraction, if sexual contact occurs, the primal nature of the connection will be instinctual as the two souls communicate with their bodies.
4) Spiritual Connection
The innate ability to sense another’s emotions or moods, even from miles apart is a sign that twin flames have connected.
This is a sacred occurrence, and often results in unconditional love.
This rare emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual connection can only occur once each partner has excised and healed their personal demons with tenderness and compassion then given themselves wholly to their union.
This process is not without pain; often the act of separation to heal and become whole as an individual can feel excruciating and frustrating, but this is an essential step towards a healed union.
In order to experience a harmonies union, there can be no co-dependence, unrealistic expectations, or ego driven obstacles.
Once this harmony has occurred, twin flames will begin vibrating on the same frequency and experience a union of unconditional love.
