Let me give a shot at this question – I will use my experiences as an example.
Fun fact one:
No matter how much I explain this to you, it will only resonate with you if you have encountered a Twin Flame. This is because every Twin Flame encounter is unique and only the two individuals going through it can properly articulate the truths of their experiences.
Second fun fact:
You can’t prepare to be a Twin Flame. The Twin Flame Experience is surprisingly invigorating and it is a crash course to understand self-love, personal authenticity, and unconditional love.
I also believe that the Twin Flame Experience is an initiation into understanding Spirituality & Spiritual Connections.
Twin Flames meet at the moments when they least expect to find each other. I had never heard of this Twin Flame experiences until I went through it. You learn about the experience as you go through the process.
When I met my Twin Flame, everything about myself made sense; I realized that I have always felt incomplete and different but I never knew why. It is until I met my Twin Flame that I realized I have been experiencing life as “half” of myself.
All the challenging times that I had been through in the past were a lesson to understand that I have been strong on my own.
I also understood that life is Simple and Easy when I am living it with my Twin Flame because we complete each other.
Now that I have given you some brief fun facts, let’s see how I can describe the Twin Flame Saga to someone who has never heard of it.
I am not a Spiritual person so I will use the Romantic perspective of being a Twin Flame.
When you look in the mirror, who do you see?
The time you meet this special person, the way you see yourself changes because you realize that you are not yourself until you meet the other half of you.
Like looking in the mirror, you realize that every time you look at your Twin Flame, instead of seeing yourself, you see your Twin Flame; your divine partner, your true contender and perfect reflection.
When you meet this person for the first time, your Soul recognizes them first. Your soul gets excited, and you are completely in love with them before your heart and mind can absorb the situation.
This is why if any of the Twin Flames has a huge ego, they tend to resist the Soul merge because the encounter beats what the mind can comprehend.
For me when I met my Twin Flame, I felt like I had met my eternal best friend. I finally found someone who understood my soul’s desires by looking in my eyes — meeting my Twin Flame felt like I could finally rest my Soul. I was finally at home after a long time of feeling lost.
Also, I realized that my Soul is old and was exhausted from searching for my Twin Flame. I felt relieved once we recognized each other yet I didn’t realize that I was searching for him in the first place.
Also meeting my Twin Flame gave a perspective to understanding my previous life. I reflected on the previous relationships that I had before and I realized that each person that I have been with in the past had an element of my Twin Flame.
I realized that I had been looking for my Twin Flame in so many people previously.
I don’t remember how I fell in love with him but it felt like I didn’t have to. I felt like how I love him is eternal and we have always been in love since our Souls existed.
Meeting your Twin Flame is like two twins realizing that they had been separated at birth but they meeting each other without knowing it.
Having a Twin Flame is having a Spiritual Twin.
Once you meet your Twin Flame, your life changes because knowing them to challenge you to reorganize your life. You realize that your Twin Flame reflects at you your perfections, strengths, desires and also they show you your ugly side – the insecurities, the Core woundings, your mistakes, and fears.
Because you love this person with all your Soul, you easily adapt to the new change because the love that you feel for them empowers you to face yourself — the good, the bad and the ugly.
The way your Twin Flame challenges you to face yourself is the same way you challenge them to face themselves.
As you work on clearing your past pain and core wounding, you are progressively initiated into the Twin Flame Experience.
You also are gradually cleansing your Spiritual energy which helps with easing the process of going through the Soul merge with your Twin Flame.
Imagine if you meet your Twin Flame as babies, there would be little Soul cleansing work to because your souls are both pure at babies but as you get older, your Soul becomes tainted with Pain, cultural conditioning, etc.
For you to accept the pure unconditional love from your Twin Flame, your soul must be pure, free and ready to merge as One.
Remember that as Twin Flames, you are already One Soul but you feel separated because of past regressions and core wounding.
This is why most Twin Flames first struggle with the pain of separation before they find healing in themselves.
What triggers the soul shock, hence separation is the fact that if one of the Twin Flames is not ready, they are triggered into denying the connection because the Soul REMEMBERS their divine partner but there is conflict in their mind – which is the Ego.
For some people, healing can be as fast as a day, and for others, it can take years of clearing dark energy and purging past pain.
Most people refer to this phase as the run/chase.
Once healing is achieved with the Twin Flame pair, there is reconciliation and harmony will lead to a Union. (Reunion).
I Believe with all my Soul that Twin Flames who are in love with each other are meant to end up in a harmonious relationship But time is fragile, short and unexpected.
As human beings, we can’t control each other because we have free will – your Twin is free to choose you or not in the physical.
Some Twin Flames meet each other while they are in Karmic relationships and sometimes it takes decades to end those Karmic cycles especially if there are children involved and marriage.
Like I said, life is fragile and short. Once you find The One, let them know how you feel no matter how difficult it is.
Once you both know how you feel for each other, you can be physically separated by continents, Karmic cycles, and other obstacles but your Love for each other is eternal.
Once you understand the challenges of being a Twin Flame, understand your Twin Flame’s situation no matter how complicated because you are each other’s support system.
All in all, one thing is undeniably true. Twin Flames are one Single Energetic system.
You are One in the Soul and Love.
I hope that my answer is close to giving you a perspective of your question.
Thanks for asking this. Stay Blessed!
