The Most Impactful Relationship Will Be With Your Twin Flame

Every relationship we get into teaches us something, but the biggest, most impactful relationship is one with our twin flame.

A twin flame is an intense soul connection. It’s like your body has been split in two with someone and you share the same soul. You see a lot of yourself in this person and they see a lot of themselves in you — which is why they say twin flames are “mirrored souls.”

When you meet a twin flame, you will feel it. There will be instant recognition, a familiar feeling as if you’ve known them before even if you’ve just met. You feel drawn to them. You go together like yin and yang and you might even notice that you share a lot of similar life experiences. Emotions, insecurities, and doubts are amplified and the relationship just feels intense.

The purpose of a twin flame is to teach you something, to challenge you, to guide you through the deepest, most feared parts of yourself. Your twin flame is supposed to be a mirror of you, allowing you to face things you’ve worked so hard to hide.

It’s not always a romantic connection — it could be a friend or a coworker or even a family member. Either way, every twin flame relationship is simply testing you and guiding you through your spiritual growth journey.

The twin flame connection will last for as long as it needs to: weeks, months, or years. But at some point, it will end. You might feel empty. You might feel like a piece of you is missing. That feeling will pass, and then suddenly you start to see everything for what it is, how your twin flame helped you get to where you needed to be.

You’ll make peace with your past. You’ll have full faith in yourself and you’ll know what you deserve in a relationship. You’ll realize you’re on your own now, as a whole body and soul.
