Twin Flame – The concept/definition!

Twin Flame – The concept/definition!

TWIN FLAMES

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.

18 Signs You’re Experiencing What’s Known As A `Twin Flame`

18 Signs You’re Experiencing What’s Known As A `Twin Flame`

There tends to be a lot of confusion about what a “twin flame” relationship really is. Unlike “soul mates,” which are our perfect matches (or our spiritual family) twin flames are our perfect mirrors. Relationships with twin flames tend to be on-again-off-again, intensely passionate, and sometimes intensely painful. Twin flames help us awaken like nobody else, and they ultimately serve to show us who we really are. Here, a few of the main signs that you’ve run into one:

1. You are intensely drawn to them. Without any real cause or reason, you feel as though you’ve known this person before, even if you just met.

2. They have opened you up to a completely new way of thinking. With them, you exchange ideas, beliefs, religion, and so on. You’ve “awakened” because of their love.

3. They come in and out of your life. You’re together, and then you’re not, and then you are again. Despite the fact that you love each other more than anything, one of you (the “runner”) seems to not be able to handle it, and dissolve the relationship. It’s almost as though your connection is too intense for you to be consistently together.

4. They feel like home. Upon meeting them, you immediately sense that you’ve known this person before. Your connection is too intense for you to have just been strangers – there is a deep feeling of familiarity when you’re with them.

5. You are the epitome of yin and yang. They seem just like your other half, the parts of you that were missing all along. (What you’ve yet to realize is that they are the parts of you you’ve yet to know.)

6. Looking back, you see that the period of time right after you’re with them is always defined by change. They bring about a lot of intense transformation in your life, sometimes painfully so.

7. You will find yourself becoming almost irrationally emotional when you’re with them. (These are the feelings and energies that have been in suppression, which they are there in part to help you recognize and heal.)

8. Your bond is instantaneous, and your relationship moves very quickly. Right off the bat, you “click” as though you’ve known one another forever. This only grows over time, and the more you get to know about them, the more absolutely in love you are.

9. Though you experience incredible passion for this person, there is an equal amount of worry and uncertainty. You may find yourself questioning a lot, asking yourself whether or not this is really love, or really what you want for your life.

10. It seems like you have this profound connection that must be destined, but you come into one another’s life at the wrong time, or something else stands in the way of you being together.This is not a product of ill fate, rather, it is a sign that you’re not meant to be together in the way you think you should. (The right thing at the wrong time is the wrong thing.)

11. You are more than just lovers. You are one another’s teachers, best friends, therapists, and so on. You have such a deep and layered connection that you do a lot more for one another than just be romantic.

12. It seems like you’re always pulled back to them in one way or another.

13. Your relationship can be tumultuous at times. This is because your twin flame serves to show you everything that needs to be healed within you. This is not to be confused with “love” being painful. Love is not painful. Everything that stands in the way can be, though.

14. One of you is more “spiritual” than the other. One is more soulful, the other more practical. You teach one another the virtues of how you think and behave – that is part of your purpose.

15. You feel very attuned to them, almost telepathically. You can feel what they’re feeling, or know what they’re thinking. It’s as though you are one.

16. When you look into their eyes, you feel like you see family, or your own child. This is your soul recognizing someone it’s known before, or someone it’s very close to.

17. For as different as you are, you have many fundamental things in common. Maybe you were born on their favorite brother’s birthday, or you met on a very significant weekend. Maybe you both went to the same type of elementary and high school, or you had the same college major. One or two of these things could just be coincidence, but with a twin flame, you’ll probably have many overlapping similarities.

18. They show you what you most desire as well as what you most fear. Their purpose is not (and has never been) to make you feel “settled” or comfortable, but to help introduce you to yourself.

Traditional and Modern Management

Traditional and Modern Management

The trends in the workplace at times are normally out of fashion. The relentless need to change has translated into a number of employees opting to put on jeans each day to work and t-shirts and on the contrary the job industry becoming increasingly formal. Dressing aside, there are a number of factors that will be responsible for how employees work, how software engineers get their work done over the coming years. It is important to consider how the traditional workplace would compare with the modern workplace, and the main point of consideration is management.

The first place that needs consideration is the working hours. Traditionally, there are some hours that are set aside for work and a number of days as well as a given number of holidays each year. For instance, normally people go work from nine to five, and a number of organizations have the notion that they should have their employees stacked in one place. We report to work from nine to six and with only an hour break in between. The boss that we work with is constantly on us, and it is not appropriate having to go outside every other five ten minutes lest you are called aside to discuss the effects that you are adding to the group because of your countless breaks (Certo, 2015). As programmers, software engineers have to get to the office since it is mandatory that they work as a team. It might seem like the work is purely group work, yes, but at the office the team is always busy and engaged in their work, and there is literally no person that can provide you with assistance in case you are met with a difficulty, or maybe when you want to get answers to a question that has been disturbing you (Anderson, 2003). The experienced developers take this as a sign of only trying to save time rather than carrying out researches personally and keep the team’s work on course without being left behind.

It becomes a little difficult when I want to fit my work around several other commitments such as social life and family. I spent basically my entire day at work every day save for weekends. I cannot get to do some stuff that is done on normal weekdays because when am free, for instance, the banks are closed. Technologies such as the portable IT gadgets and developments in the mobile technology makes the traditional workplace kind of redundant and other than insisting that there has to need to have the flex time that is guaranteed to all the workers particularly when the developers can prove a good case for the opportunity.

Here is a case where am working with a team that is well organized and that which is very enthusiastic and have a passionate Technology Production Manager. Other than the attitude towards the hours for working, there is a need for a quite relaxed management where the workers are allowed longer micromanaged and are as well trusted to come up with their individual plans for the organizations and to work in ways that it is them who find to be more productive. As developers, we are working in a group of four, and that explains why we are constantly collaborating so as to ensure that the output of the group is sufficient and efficient in the eyes of the demand. The kind of management that we have at the moment is an example of a modern management technique other than the hierarchical management technique that was employed in the ancient times where it was the individuals who were valued and not the subjects to superiority or their inferiority irrespective of whether they are young or old (Aurum, et al. 2013). Working as a team is one kind of modern management where young and upcoming software engineers get mentorships from the experienced team members, they get to be directed on how things are done and not only being showed by mere talk.

Looking at my group, we are four, and we are so much concerned about collaboration where we review the codes that we are working with as we make sure that they are as clean as possible considering that a team can be perfect, but individuals cannot be. Every day at work, we need to spend four hours working together as a team and the other four hours we take as flexible where we can use them to complete individual portions and carry out the researches. We are motivated to maintain the attention to the details and to read the documents every other time since we are out to produce impressive work, deliver the work on time and quality is mandatory meaning we need to be careful not to rush in an attempt to beat time as Shaw (2000) portrays. The overall outlook is that the balance between personal life and the work life is perfect, and this makes the first reason of motivation that we have to stick to as an organization. Every software engineer is a committed individual. They like what they are doing, and that is why they are always available to commit the much they can with respect to the part that they are respected and their work too, other than the salary and the strict agreements of contracts.

The other aspect of modern management is the social network. The location of workers is increasingly becoming fragmented, and every other company is coming up with their own social network platforms so as to permit socialization among the employees, particularly members of a given team that hardly meets with the members of other teams (Gadgil & Berkes, 2001). It is such awareness that reduces the time among the colleagues as vital for establishing relationships as well as promoting collaboration among the employees. As thus, the aspect that companies are more concerned with the happiness of the employees comes into view, and it is this happiness that is key to productivity within the organization (Schreiber, 2000). These are the aspects that make the modern management different from the traditional management where little attention was given to the happiness of the employees.

With a shift towards a healthy work-life balance, the idea of having health employees has translated to content employees as well as the accomplishment of the office wellness systems is borne out by the efficiency proliferations as the days are continually lost as a result of absent workers who are out due to ill health (Kuhn, 2014). The employers are picking the trend looking set to come up with a company gym membership, they are setting up health insurance and even the in-house massage and coming up with fruit systems are being set up in the workplaces. It is these aspects that make my employers modern as they are concerned about our wellbeing. Considering that as developers, we are always working as a team, when a team member is out, the output of the group is greatly affected. In the traditional management systems, the employers were having little concerns in the lives of their employees as long as they were working and beating deadlines (Pressman, 2005). Leaves were granted to sick employees to seek medical attention but there were no fruit programs or workplace gyms that would help the workers stay fit and healthy. Looking at software engineers under traditional management, group work is not put into consideration as each developer is assigned tasks that they are to work on other than be members of a team of developers like in our case.

The other aspect is that the software engineers are not thrilled with the point of having to tirelessly keep working and there is little to show for the hard work in terms of wages earned. The good thing is that the developers are passionate about what they are doing and as thus are lesser concerned with the wages they are accorded as long as they get their things done. At the moment, I go to work as supposed and am adhering to all the requirements and expectations, but I still have a simple salary, what keeps me going? Developers work out of passion; they do not work to build interests, neither for themselves or the organization (Zmud, 2000). The developers are aware that they have to contribute, and their features are used with customers and when they are having more customers will mean that more money and they are not interested in this even if their wages remain stagnant at the low they are in. Wages is not what drives the developers.

Conclusively, the motivation that flows within the team is what promotes us, and we are always encouraged to do our best on every assignment that we are tackling. Managers are not to get frustrated over the lack of quality engineers. Indeed, the traditional management is a lot stricter on time where the employees have to be at work from nine to five and have fewer coffee breaks of not more that 2-3. It is this aspect of traditional management in my workplace that needs to be worked on. Looking for individuals who can keep time, in most cases time alone, translates to opting to have punctual monkeys at the workplace other than have creative individuals at the workplace considering the fields where there are needs for statisticians or even advanced programmers who are handling big data and problem-solving knowledge (O’Shannassy, 2003). Issues come up when the employers are not ready to exploit the talent that the developers are having and their magnificent knowledge and instead look at other somewhat irrelevant aspects as such as having as fewer coffee breaks as possible. There are numerous start-ups that are growing up rapidly since they are able to tap into the technical knowledge that the developers have in the name of employing a modern management other than the traditional management that pays a little attention to the employees.
