My Mind is Evolving

It is no secret that I have never been one to believe in soulmates. My thinking has always been- What is the chance that out of all the people in the world so many find their soulmate? My logical mind tells me the answer is slim to none. I have never been opposed to believing there are more than one soulmate for everyone though. I do think that when people say “He/She is my soulmate” they are convinced they are the only one out there that is so perfect for them and it’s this belief I have disregarded. I do feel any one of us can find someone compatible enough to spend our lives with many times over. Someone who is set apart from the rest in a very special way BUT I don’t think there is just ONE of these types of people.

In my head a soulmate can encompass many things…not just a romantic connection. I actually have a friend who I feel is a soulmate of mine. And this is not to take away from anything special I have with any of my other friends either! There is just something different about my relationship with Kacy that sets it apart. It’s something I can’t even really describe but it’s there. I have no other explanation but that she’s a soulmate to me. I know…gay right?! But not really…of course we don’t have a romantic attachment but soulmates can be much more than just that. I did a bit of research and found the following information:

Soulmates are our soul family, the ones we do have many lifetimes and experiences with, who help us grow and evolve, create and dissipate karma. According to ancient wisdom, when the soul is "born" or descended from Source, it is created in a group. The souls in this group are our soulmates, ones who are very like us in frequency makeup. Then each of these souls is split into two, creating the twins.

A soulmate is someone you are close to at a soul level, and with whom you have had many shared experiences in different lifetimes, in various kinds of relationships -- siblings, parent-child, best friend, as well as romantic relationships. There is a deep love for each other, and a spiritual bond that sets them apart from the superficiality of most other people in your life. Conversations are generally deep, about personal growth and service to make the world a better place. We can have many soulmates in our lives, and they come to us to help us grow spiritually.

Now I’m agnostic so I’m not really sure I fully believe in the whole “different lifetimes” aspect of this but everything else I agree with. This definition does make me want to look into different religions though and explore the possibility of rebirths. Anyway, while looking into “soulmates” I stumbled across a term I have never heard of before. And it’s the term I have always thought people mistakenly label soulmate- Twin Flame. This concept is the most romantic concept to me and one that I’m not in total disagreement on.

Twin flames, also called twin souls, are literally the other half of our soul. We each have only one twin, and generally after being split the two went their separate ways, incarnating over and over to gather human experience before coming back together. Ideally, this happens in both of their last lifetimes on the planet so they can ascend together. So you probably haven't had many lifetimes with your twin.

Each twin is a complete soul, not half a soul. It is their task to become more whole, balancing their female and male sides, and ideally become enlightened, before reuniting with their twin. This reunion is of two complete and whole beings. All other relationships through all our lives could be said to be "practice" for the twin, the ultimate relationship.

Twin Flames are what I think people think a soulmate is. With these new definitions under my belt I do believe that many people have found a soulmate to spend their life with. But have many found their twin flame? Their ultimate relationship?

Twin Flame reunions are the most fulfilling relationships we can enter into as humans, on all levels. However, twin flame couples have been extremely rare on the planet, and for good reasons, which will be described later. Despite this, we are finding that more and more twins are finding each other now, because of the acceleration of spiritual transformation and opportunities for soul evolution we are all experiencing. People are evolving and learning and healing at such a fast rate that they are getting ready for their twins faster. What used to take lifetimes to learn and heal, people are now going through in years or even months. This is the astounding level of acceleration we and the planet are going through.

When twins get together, it is for some kind of spiritual service work. This is their primary reason for finding each other, because through their union a huge birthing of creative energy is released, to be used for their mission together. More and more twins are attempting to get together now to help the planet and humanity make a big shift forward in consciousness.

However, many of these attempts at reunion are unsuccessful because the individual people are not quite ready for the intensity of a twin flame union. It is more intense than any other union, and this intensity is at a soul level, not as much in the physical or even emotional bodies. This doesn't mean that there isn't a good attraction at those levels as well, but the strongest attraction is of spirit. This is one of the distinguishing characteristics of a twin soul. Many people think they have met their twin because the attraction is so intense, but it is a karmic attraction, one of need or bodily desire rather than the Divine Love of twins.

Your chance of meeting and staying with your twin depends on how evolved your soul is, and how much of your baggage from this and past lives you have cleared. The biggest reason twins have to separate after coming together is their individual emotional baggage. Because in the presence of your twin, there can be nothing between you, nothing blocking your closeness. This means that everything comes up for healing that you haven't previously healed. Everything!

When twins reunite, both of them experience an acceleration of their spiritual growth and awakening. They get on the fast track of learning about esoteric wisdom and experiencing other states of consciousness. They usually haven't been together all that often during their series of lives on the planet, and so their backgrounds may be different. Yet, there is a closeness and similarities of spirit that are almost uncanny, noticed in many ways, such as looking back at yourself when you look at your mate, and a remembering of the distant past when you first split up. Guidance is strong with these relationships, and usually one or both have a good channel for communication with Spirit. Their connection is telepathic, and hugging each other is like coming home for nourishment.

Once again I’m left wondering about all of this rebirthing and different lifetimes hoopla but because this is the most beautiful, pure thing I have ever heard I really want to believe that we each have ONE twin soul out there. The notion of actually finding this soul is romantic and exciting. That something can be so powerful that your once united souls were ripped apart to grow individually to later be reunited in some magical, intense way that everything lines up just perfectly. I don’t know…I just may become a believer yet!
