For those of us in the baby boomer generation, we still remember the days when dancing close to the one you were in love with or just in like with, has significant memories. An old song plays on the radio, and we are immediately transported back, to the the time and place we first heard it.
You know exactly what I'm talking about! The Jr high or high school dance, the decorated gym, low lights the heat and smell! Oh yeah, I'm there. Those where some of the best memories of MY life and I bet others are saying, "Yes they were". Not a care in the world for most of us, and certainly not the responsibilities we have now.
When we are young, our first love is the one that sticks out in our mind most vividly. Not because they were necessarily the ONE for us, but because it was the first time we allowed our emotions to take center stage. Nothing else in the world mattered, but being with that person.
Now, we are in our 40's,50's with more life experiences under our belts and in some cases even a divorce and for some multiple divorces. It' is said, "With age comes wisdom", and for some truer words were never spoken. Those are the ones that have taken each and every life lesson, to heart to grow spiritually. To learn what their purpose is here and live the life they were meant to, with the one created just for them, using the abilities and gifts the God/Goddess sent us here with.
What is a "Twin Flame" you may ask? The term most often has been confused with that of soul mates the two are distinctly different. The greatest love story ever told is the one you have with your very own beloved twin flame. In the beginning we were created in the God/Goddess in an ovoid white-fire-spirit-light, the soul was split just like the atom into two identical parts (twin flames) each with the same identical soul blueprint. We then went forth from the Etheric realm (heaven) of the God/Goddess's perfect light into denser levels of consciousness (the physical). Somewhere in cosmos, each one of us has our very own divine other, who carries either the feminine or masculine polarity. This soul memory of the twin flame is so powerful, that we can feel very alone in this world, as we search for that promise of that original perfect love, the twin. No other love can compare to your own twin flame.
The other two levels of relationship is that of soul mates and karmic relationships. Soul mates can create very happy marriages as they are working on similar soul initiations, life lessons, and projects in this life. Soul mates have been friends for life times and may need each other in this life to satisfy a mission or complete a work. They may not experience the incredible, all-consuming, intense love situation as twin flames.
Your twin flame is your true "other half " - your divine spouse that the soul yearns to find. You and your twin flame stood before the God/Goddess and vowed to bring to earth a portion of the God/Goddess's creativity and energy from the Spiritual realms into the world for serving others and for a unique purpose - your divine mission. Having met your vow and mastered outer conditions, your destiny is to return to Spiritual realms and reunite with the God/Goddess.
Not all of the beautiful and soul-fulfilling loves are those of twin flames. There is also the love of close, kindred souls called soul mates. Soul mates are different from twin flames in that they were not created from the same o-void of light and therefore each has their own twin flame. The soul mate relationship is a great blessing when for some reason we cannot reunite with our twin flame in this incarnation.
For instance, our twin flame might not be incarnated at this time, or may not be following a spiritual path, or conversely, may already be an Ascended Master working in the spiritual realms to inspire us upward. An ascended twin flame might even send a soul mate to us as a representative of him/herself. Soul mates are drawn together because they are simultaneously working on the same type of karma, sacred labour and the same chakra (spiritual centres within the body).
Soul mates can be in the husband/ wife, sibling, co-worker or other relationship and they can be of the same or different sex. A soul mate is like the echo of oneself working at the same task to fulfil a service to the God/Goddess.
Soul mates experience a calmer, more stable connection on the lines of a brother and a sister type rapport. I find the very best marriages to be between soul mates they work very harmoniously together in business, raising children, and contributing to the community.
Karmic relationships are where either the person owes you a karmic-debt or you owe them from a former life. They often end when the debt is paid or when Spirit determines the time of opportunity is up. All relationships are for mutual personal evolution. How can you tell if you are in a karmic relationship? No relationship is perfect, but if you feel like you need therapy as a result of being with this person, then this could be an indicator. Feeling drained emotionally, physically, and financially are indicators of a karmic entanglement. Are you doing all the giving and your partner is doing all the taking, look-out it may be a karmic entanglement."
Whether it be the union of twin flames, soul mates or karmic partners, marriage is meant to be an initiation on the path back to the God/Goddess, a commemoration of the soul's reunion with the God/Goddess. It is our choice as to whether our relationships are based on the human or the divine. The union of twin flames is intended to be for the magnification of their service to the God/Goddess and humanity - it is a high and holy calling. To meet your twin flame while you still have karma may simply lead to another parting, without the knowledge of spiritual laws on how to balance this karma and the dedication to apply these laws.
One of the keys to changing past karma and fulfilling your divine mission with your twin flame is the violet flame - a unique spiritual energy that has the power to literally erase the negative karma that keeps you from your twin flame and the God/Goddess. While you can't go back in time, the violet flame transmutes the cause, the effect, and even the memory of our past mistakes, and the resultant negative karma.
Calling forth the violet flame daily is one of the quickest and most effective means for accelerating spiritual growth in preparation for our ultimate reunion with the God/Goddess and our twin flame. The only true and lasting union of twin flames is for each of you first, together or separately, to achieve union with the God/Goddess. Then you, your twin flame and the God/Goddess are united and inseparable forevermore.
I have been blessed to find my twin, and it is truly rare to connect with one's "Twin" and recognize the spiritual significance of such an occurrence. We both knew, from the day we met that we had found the missing part of ourselves.
Now we are on, to the next part of our journey completing our souls purpose.
Wishing you all Love and Light.
