As the sun mirrors the moon, as yin has yang, our souls crave for a matching counterpart. All things in this world exist by creating unions with each other, except for humans who are unique in that their ego can control the mind, creating dissonance, and even shutting us off from real human connection. Surrounding us, energetic connections are shooting around us, through a matrix that is picking up signals through body frequency, but it is up to us to be aware of the signs and embrace the gift that true union with another can bring us.
The immense force and profound compassion and love you experience when you find your Twin Flame, your “twin soul”, cannot be denied. You have a sudden clarity on life; everything seems to suddenly “go your way”. The intoxicating mix of lust and passion, understanding and connection; a symbiosis that occurs in this relationship that had never been experienced before. At the same time there’s this volatility that is always just at the edge of eruption, challenging us, pushing us to be better, urging us toward our highest potential. The sacred grounds you make with your Twin Flame union will be one used to support and carry you toward your goals. When you unite with your Twin Flame, there is a reason that there is this unquenchable thirst to learn, to love, to grow and understand. It’s as if the clouds have cleared and you are truly being seen and appreciated for who you are.
It is important to recognize that not everyone agrees with the terminology used here, “Twin Flame”, “twin soul”, and not everyone believes that they need another person in their life to feel more “complete”, and some will never unite with their Twin Flame. In truth, when Twin Flames comes together in union, they are already complete beings unto themselves and what the union offers is a solid basis on which to continue the journey of self-discovery.
What is a Twin Flame and What are the Stages?
A Twin Flame or “Twin Soul” or someone who you have connected with beyond the physical and emotional world, you share a commonality with the way you feel about spirituality, both on the path of real self-discovery and betterment. In essence, the very presence of your Twin Flame ignites the fire within your core to reach and achieve more for yourself. There are a myriad of feelings immediately felt in this strong union; excitement, humility, volatility, trust, drive, and passion.
Twin Flames do not have to be of the opposite sex. Twin souls can come to us in the form of a friend or teacher. The sense of familiarity and comfort, feelings of having met before, these are all indications that you may have met your twin soul. Twin Flame union is bonded by a telepathy they share deep within their souls, their connection to the other. When you meet your twin soul, you may experience déjà vu or experience symbiosis. A synchronicity so well matched, that when you unite, the power with which you will propel yourselves forward into your self-discovery will be with epic force. The bond of the twin souls relies on having spent lifetimes together. Energetically, there is a gentle ebb and flow of challenging and supporting, and even lifting when possible. This is a sacred connection built on trust and deep soulful understanding.
Twin Flame Telepathy
What is Twin Flame telepathy? Remember the matrix of energetic connection? Each person carries, unto themselves, a unique body frequency and we are constantly creating energy and giving energy. This energy, once released, becomes a part of the matrix and as we each move through the matrix, our bodies will pick up various energetic connections- some will miss and some will resonate, and the magic really happens when we connect with ones of our own frequency. When you are in complete a base line with yourself, then you can lend your innate “beat” to another, you can feel what is on the inside. There is no need to think deeply about the other’s thoughts because you share the same values and beliefs. You are empathic toward the other. Twin Flames are capable of having long, thoughtful conversations that can last for hours, in a wonderful exchange of ideas. People sometimes experience the feeling of having their mind read or finishing each other’s sentences. Bear in mind that their energetic intensity can ride so high, that these very same bonding connections can repel from each other just as hard during arguments or conflict.
It is important to remember that this is only the beginning of what is to be a magnetically charged connection! As the bond between Twin Flames strengthens over time, this telepathy will only increase and become stronger. Harmony is created and a sense of really being “in-tune” which your partner when both people are operating at the same frequency. Often, you will have a deep feeling that you have known this person for a long time.
4 MAJOR MYTHS ABOUT TWIN FLAME RELATIONSHIPS
Let’s talk about what Twin Flames are not. In this modern day and age, finding your true match is easier than ever. There aren’t many restrictions today on why we should choose our partner. Because of this freedom, we have apps and internet-dating sites. There are socials organized and events thrown to meet people and ideas around commitment are more liberal than ever. But is the reunion of Twin Flames is as magnetic than ever, when one is granted all freedoms. Sade said it best, “If you set me free, I will not run.”
But along with this cataclysmic connection, these unions can fall prey to the classic pitfalls of any worthwhile relationship. It is important that Twin Flames build their soul connection as not to romanticize or idealize the relationship. Though the union is certainly sacred in nature, it is important not to attach too much divinity idealism and worship. While the feelings can in deed be compared to the ecstasy of God, this union can also experience bouts of volatility.
The issue with the intensity of Twin Flame union is that it is a union that requires suspension of ego- of pride. The beauty that lies in the connection is to serve as a support system on which one can blossom deeper into oneness and self-actualization. Twin souls serve as mirrors for one another, reflecting strengths, weakness, fears and hopes. They embody what the partner lacks, and if Twin Flames can work together through these moments of dissonance, there can be great deepening of the bond but if not, expect conflicts to arise.
Let’s look at the various myths associated with finding one’s true Twin Flame:
MYTH 1: Twin Flames “Complete” Each Other
As we discussed earlier, Twin Flames are two souls, complete unto themselves before uniting. However, it is the union of the two that allows for further personal growth, deeper self-development. This is not always easy to confront within oneself let alone be brought to your attention by another person. Through trust, respect, and clear communication, Twin Flames can be amazing aides to each other in the journey of spiritual awakening, but the journey will have moments that are overwhelming and intense.
Every being carries with them their own conditioning, pain, stories and egos, but at the true root of every imperfect person lies the perfect soul; clear, open, compassionate and infinite. The power of Twin Flame union is that our twin is there to remind us of our perfectly imperfect selves.
MYTH 2: My Twin Flame Is Of The Opposite Sex
As we read before, Twin Flames don’t always come in the form of someone of the opposite sex. Twin Flames can come in the form of a friend or teacher. Some of us in life have perhaps experienced Twin Flame union with a best friend. The impact of such a connection is felt deep within the heart and soul but not attached to gender.
MYTH 3: My Twin Flame Is My Same
Twin souls are our counterpart, not our mirror image. They serve to show us the differences between. Remember the idea of “yin and yang”? Twin Flames experience volatility because they are catalysts for personal change and growth, which can be a confronting experience during an already charged situation.
MYTH 4: There’s A Right Time and a Right Place
Know that one can never predict life’s roller coaster. One day you are high and progressing in life and the next, you are in the pits and suffering. You cannot put the expectation on yourself that you will be picture perfect when your Twin Flame shows up. You may not be able to invite your twin soul into your life straight away. It may take months to build trust, respect, and a strong basis that is needed to create a firm ground to build the relationship on. Because of the very nature of Twin Flame relationships, the intensity can burn out of not fanned correctly. Have compassion and release your expectations of the shape and form of your Twin Flame. You may rekindle your connection again later when both partners are sound in mind, heart, and soul.

Stages of a Twin Flame Relationship
Preparation Phase – Yearning for “The One”
During this first phase you are well aware of your emotional capacity and mental and emotional health and well-being. You have already experienced karmic relationships (relationships that are emotionally tumultuous and usually ending painfully). After you have learned the lessons needed for this cycle or period in your life, you can make space to receive someone who is complete as well.
Twin Flame STAGE ONE: MANIFESTING YOUR TWIN FLAME
You will start to feel from deep within, the resonance of your beloved. You may first experience your Twin Flame coming to you in your dreams. It is possible that you may have already met your partner and so he or her coming closer into proximity with your energy magnifies the sensation of desiring to bring someone into your life.
Twin Flame STAGE TWO: BRINGING YOUR TWIN INTO REALITY
You will likely have no idea if you have met your Twin Flame or not. The magnetism between you two is undeniable and you are unconsciously pulled to be together. You understand, deep down, that this union is very special and this person has the potential to play a very important role in your life.
Twin Flame STAGE THREE: CONNECTING WITH YOUR BELOVED
Meeting your Twin Flame is a cataclysmic phenomenon. You will experience falling for this person harder than you have ever fallen. Love takes on a new meaning, so deep and so profound. You feel high and feel more wanted than you ever have in your life. You can relish in their deep love and total acceptance.
Twin Flame STAGE FOUR: THE HONEYMOON PHASE
You are inexplicably pulled to be together and you decide to go into a relationship. During this phase the relationship feels perfect, nothing but smooth sailing through a cloudless sky. This is a taste of what is to come if the union can survive the next stage.
Twin Flame STAGE FIVE: REALITY STRIKES
Reality sets in and egos will go to battle. The initial meeting was so intense and magnetic but now that the relationship has begun to progress and there is trouble in paradise. Personalities start to clash, differences in opinion start to create conflict rather than compliment as it did in the beginning. It is important to remember that Twin Flames are our mirror. If we are strong in personality, our partner is probably more subdued, if we are extrovert, our partner is usually an introvert. The relationship between Twin Flames is intense both in the good and in the bad. When we are in conflict with our partner, and ourselves egos can heat up.
This particular phase can be really painful and you may experience thought of separating. It’s imperative that we maintain sense of self-awareness during this stage. We must face the reality of who we really are in order to move forward in our spiritual awakening, our personal growth, and all our relationships. It is important to keep perspective during this time, as not to do something that one would regret later on.
Twin Flame STAGE 6: CAT AND MOUSE
Tensions are riding so high for one partner (or both). Wounds, old (and maybe new) are wide open and feelings of wanting to “runaway” arise. Conflicts materialize into full-blown arguments ending in silent treatments or complete emotional shut down. The cat, usually the more emotionally and mentally mature partner of the two is usually trying to be constructive and work things out. This game is dependent on each partner’s own level of emotional maturity. Some people learn from the mistakes experienced in their prior karmic relationships and move forward, more cautious and aware, and some of us are fated to repeat the cycle.
In more serious cases, you may need to think of separating from each other for some time. In the most extreme cases, ending the relationship may be the best thing for both of you. That is not to say that anything is final. Perhaps you may be able to come together- again, when you have both matured and grown more as individuals.
Twin Flame STAGE 7: SURRENDER
You’ve worn each other out with your game of cat and mouse. Tensions start to relax and you find support within the other for the insecurities that arose during stage 6. You both begin to surrender to the other, arriving at the table of sharing, wounds, baggage and all. During this phase, one starts to shed the weight of the ego and becomes ready for soul expansive connection again. This is a powerful time for Twin Flames as they begin to see the other for the total package, void of any subtext, no confusion; total naked and raw honest versions now face one another. When we let down our powerful ego, we are allowed to learn the lessons needed to care for ourselves and another being. What does it mean to be emotionally and mentally connected and how does that manifest itself in the relationship your bond with each other and within yourself will start to expand and open.
Twin Flame STAGE 8: ALLIANCE IN UNITY
If you can allow for time to pass, wounds heal, tensions release daily moments, and you start to once again embrace and call on your beloved, and this next stage is one that can make for a lasting relationship. You have already seen how you and your partner have dealt through tumultuous times and if the bond is strong enough and worthy enough to stay, then both parties must work hard at the prosperity of the union.
During this stage we become even more empathetic and understanding of our beloved. Lessons about forgiveness and patience are essential to gain awareness and move forward in a mature relationship. The more effort the both of you put in to take time for each other, to rebuild the bond, dissolved egos between yourselves to keep your sacred connection, the more prosperous you will be in the end. Then you will truly be able to experience true unity with your Twin Flame. Then will you be on the path of true spiritual awakening.
