The twin flame relationship holds within it a collection of the most important spiritual and karmic lessons that we need to learn to complete our spiritual relationship.

The connection itself is, therefore, the most spiritually significant one we will experience.

But this relationship is not an easy one – not by any stretch!

Twin flames often go through ups and downs, periods of harmony and discord. This has a purpose in teaching us the lessons we need to learn about life and the spirit.

One particular stage of the twin flame relationship that we see in most cases is the twin flame separation and this period can be very difficult.

We might experience all sorts of symptoms of separation, one of which is intrusive dreams about our twin flame.

We will talk about those dreams in a moment, but first, we should understand the twin flame separation stage.

Twin Flame Separation

The twin flame separation stage is experienced in most cases for one reason: the twin flames have different spiritual needs right now, and the twin flame relationship just is not equipped to deliver on those needs.

This can be heart-wrenchingly difficult for the twin flames, which hold within them an unconditional love for one another.

But it is both necessary and temporary.

Separation rarely lasts too long to handle. The universe draws us back together once we are ready. But, in the meantime, we have to deal with the dark side of the twin flame relationship – at least for a while.


The dreams that can accompany twin flame separation are many and varied, but have one thing in common – they all stem from soul-ache.

Soul-ache is a term that describes the feeling of having a part of our soul torn from us. It is categorised by a sense of utter emptiness.

During the day, the demands of the physical world distract us from this feeling but at night, when we sleep, the veil is at its thinnest, and we experience only the spiritual self.

The spiritual self, unfortunately, is obsessed with returning our soul to its twin flame.

This manifests as regular dreams about our twin flame. Often these dreams will either be idyllic or confrontational, evoking feelings upon awaking of either profound loss or hot anger, respectively.

Dealing With Dreams

But if we can describe a problem, we can at least try to solve it. After all, we spend a third of our life asleep, and if our dreams are tormenting us we should at least try to stop that.

So what can we do?

Well, the only thing we can do is attempt to come to terms with the situation we find ourselves in.

We should meditate, ask our spirit guides to help us to focus on our spiritual journey and to keep our twin flame at a distance on the astral plane – at least until we are ready to be reunited.

But above all, we must accept that these dreams may be an essential part of our spiritual journey.

If they continue, perhaps we should think of these dreams not as intrusive, emotionally draining brain indulgences, but as coded lessons that we must learn to bring them to a stop.
