Twin Flame – The concept/definition!


Twin flames, although a very controversial concept, has been in the core of discussions in recent times.

Questions are being asked, researches are being made as to what twin flames are really all about.

Well, the answer we seek is not far-fetched.

Twin flames are one big soul which in a bid to gather different experiences, incarnate separately.

These separate incarnates reunite once they have gained enough consciousness (when they are mature enough).

However, this reunion is not always as easy as it sounds.

It does not get cozy from the very start.

The beginning suffers a little setback or inhibition which could be as a result of painful past experiences. Individual incarnate is “careful” so as not to get caught up in the cycles of previous sufferings.

Next we ask, how do twin flames meet? Meeting your twin flame can be likened to meeting your exact replica.

As perfect as the mirror replicates the image of a man, so does it feel when your twin flame stands right in front of you. Little wonder the unexplainable force of attraction, the bond seems so strong beyond comprehension. The reason for this is none other but the fact that the two souls are now fully conscious of each other’s existence. This, as one would expect, changes their lives forever. Because of the connection being divine, past experiences at this point, begin to resurface. Despite having suppressed them, they just seem to keep popping out. Hence, difficulty in the twins attaining a meaningful relationship at that moment.

The relationship does not stand until the twins are able to learn and heal old wounds, a process initiated by the separation of the twin flames. It is also of utmost importance to dwell on the twin flames process. This could be explained by the YinYang principle of uniting male and female power. The twin flames at their first meeting tend to have one of them live in the male power and the other, the female power.

There is then what is the called the “chaser” and the “runner”. The chaser being the one near perfection as regards dealing with the female principle in terms of softness, passiveness and emotions; and the runner being the one driven only by male principles (in terms of activeness, taking action, and mind usage). The male principle not being solidly developed, makes dealing with love and emotion seem impossible. In other words, the runner runs from his feelings.

The dynamic at this point then begins with escape from the “mind’, who after meeting his other twin, loses more and more control of his feelings. This appears strange and poses a great threat to him, and thus, his inevitable rejection of his twin flame. He rejects and builds resistance to anything that tends to put him out of control and make him vulnerable, which he often times assume to be his twin.

The heart is left frustrated at the sight of this tussle between the twins.

Often times then not, the heart actually acknowledges the fact that her twin flame loves them and then feels the need to take action.

The action to take is often times almost impossible – letting go. She feels the need to develop her male aspects and in the long run, she finds self-love and self-esteem. The heart is now fully aware of the things she wants and does not want in life. The twins being inseparably connected assures the “mind” he would not lose his twin. Also, at the early stages of the process, the mind taps its energy from the heart. Every of the heart’s attempt to focus on finding self-love lessens the energy available to the mind. The process of the heart fighting against his feelings continues until the mind is fully drained of all its energy. All is back to normal when the heart finally wins over his mind. He then realizes the hard way that his most loved part had been pushed away by his actions. Then he starts making efforts to win back his beloved.

At the end, the defense mechanism each incarnate has built is broken and the ego lost because the connection is divine and pure.

They finally realize it is all about self-love; after-all, they are one. With that, comes the fulfillment of the twins flame process.
