The first step to embarking on a journey with our Twin Flame is to understand that these relationships abide by no timeline.
When our soul recognizes someone in this life, there is an instant feeling of comfort and excitement.
But, there also may be the internal struggle of things moving too fast—or not moving at all. There may be anxiety in attempting to approach this type of connection like past relationships.
But this can’t be done, because for the soul—time simply doesn’t exist.
Our souls don’t understand the concept of time. They don’t recognize that weeks or months may have passed since our Twin Flame came into our lives, because when we are with them again we pick up exactly where we left off. While outside circumstances may change, nothing can change that internal connection we feel with another.
Souls don’t understand what they are supposed to be doing; they don’t understand the concept of courting, or dating. They don’t follow traditional rules, and while we may try to hammer on the brakes the best we can, these types of relationships seem to have a power all their own.
Twin Flames are different than soulmates.
A soulmate can be a platonic or romantic love; it means that somewhere in another life we have spent time with them, possibly in the same relationship, or more likely in another form. I have a few friendships where there is no rational explanation for the way that we click—our souls just are at comfort with each other.
Although we may have many soulmates, there is only ever one Twin Flame.
Twin Flames are the most elusive type of romantic relationship, because they doesn’t have the turmoil or pain associated with Karmic relationships. There isn’t any working out to be done; when Twin Flames find each other in this life it is because the work has already been done in past lives.
In the beginning when we were created from light and the dust of the stars, each orb of energy was split into two flames—two souls. These souls travel in each lifetime learning as much as they can about life and humanity. Often times, Twin Flames gravitate toward the non-traditional because it is there that their souls feel most at ease in the discovery of their purpose and authentic life path.
When we meet our Twin Flame in this life there is an undercurrent of electricity—but to expect that a connection that is unlike any other will then follow the traditional rules of togetherness is futile.
Time is meaningless to Twin Flames. It doesn’t exist in the way that others view time, because nothing can be done to subdue the attraction and electrifying connection of two souls finding each other in this life.
The only way to approach a relationship with a Twin Flame is to throw out the rule book.
Every thought or way of approaching togetherness will be challenged until it’s nothing but a mottled ball of uselessness. Twin Flames may spend years in an on-again, never really off-again type of dance. One or both may become scared or anxious because unlike other relationships—this just can’t be controlled.
This isn’t to say that there won’t be challenges—we are only human, after all—but Twin Flames gather strength from the combining of soul energy. So while we may question what it is we are feeling, and our legs may shake—ultimately it’s a state of togetherness that just can’t be ignored.
The Twin Flame connection will call to our souls until there is nothing left to question, and nothing left to do but to surrender to what will be—because it has already been written in the stars long before we took our first breaths in this life.
To make the decision to embark on a journey with our Twin Flame requires openness and patience. It requires courage and passion for the unknown. To journey into the unfathomable means to learn how to be in togetherness along the way.
It’s realizing there is no “right” or “wrong” way to go about loving someone, especially someone whom we feel the connection of soul recognition with. It understands that the union we make with another will be based in originality and will at times take our breath away.
To journey into the Twin Flame connection is to learn how to love all over again.
For the Twin Flames there is no such thing as “too soon,” because once the decision has been made to accept what will be means to let things move at their own pace. It’s not applying any past knowledge of relationships, and instead treating this type of togetherness for what it is—something that we’ve never experienced before and likely never will again.
It’s amazing, and terrifying. It’s passionate and relaxing. It’s simply everything we never thought we would ever be feeling—and all for one person.
The Twin Flame connection is the most soul baring type of togetherness two people can share. It’s free from conformity and societal expectations, it’s liberating and mesmerizing.
It’s simply the best it will ever get—if we let ourselves surrender to its power.
