What is a twin flame? How is it different from a soulmate relationship? Have you connected with your twin flame love?
Your twin flame lover is both your greatest ally and greatest enemy. A twin flame relationship awakens your life in a whole new way. You see things from a different point of view and you find yourself doing things that you would normally be fearful of. You feel extremely emotionally vulnerable around them, which may get bothersome after a while, but it is a way to heal your repressed emotions through their presence and love.
If you believe in reincarnation, this analogy may help you: picture yourself in another time, long before you were born. Now, picture meeting someone that you share an intense, almost telepathic relationship with. Picture meeting someone and having that same feeling all over again. The way that twin flames interact is like two people who knew each other in a past life.
Every relationship has something to teach us—and twin flames are often considered the ones that will teach us the most. Meeting your twin flame is considered the most powerful soul encounter a person can experience. So, we asked experts how to know when you've found your twin flame, plus what to know about navigating the oftentimes tumultuous relationship.
A twin flame is an intense soul connection, sometimes called a "mirror soul," thought to be a person's other half. It's based on the idea that sometimes one soul gets split into two bodies. One of the main characteristics of a twin flame relationship is that it will be both challenging and healing. This is due to the mirroring nature of a twin flame; they show you your deepest insecurities, fears, and shadows. But they also help you overcome them and vice versa—your twin flame will be equally affected by you.
