Have you ever met someone and felt that there was a magnetic pull toward them? Are certain people fated to be in your life?
The theory of soulmates and twin flames suggest that their is a "soul-time" of connections that you share. These times together have been experienced in past lives. A soulmate and a twin flame are part of the fiber of your soul.
So how do you know when you meet each of them and what's the difference within the relationship experience?
The Twin Flame
Twin flames are one half of a soul. When the two parts of the same soul incarnate in different bodies, they are both always on a mission of sorts to reconnect with each other. It can almost feel like you know someone significant is out there looking for you as you are looking for them.
This sounds all romantic and gushy right? (Insert love song here.)
Stop the music!!
The twin flame relationship is an experience of a range of emotions that usually break you down before they build you up.
What many don't understand is that the journey of twin flames is more about becoming whole within self in order to experience wholeness within their union.
"We all will encounter a twin flame relationship but it's something you shouldn't seek unless you're ready to experience ranges of emotions that could break you down.
The Soul Mate
If you have ever met someone and felt an instant connection, whether it's a passionate spark or simply an inexplicable knowing between the two of you, this could be a sign that the person is one of your soulmates. Yes ONE. Contrary to what you may have heard, you can have countless soulmates in one life time.
Personally I have already encountered five of mine.
However all of these connections are not found in a romantic relationship. You will be able to identify, with a strong sense of knowing, whether a soulmate connection is a romantic one or not.
When you meet a romantic soulmate it will have a comfortable, familiar feeling of being home, like you have known this person forever.
