What Is A Twin Flame?
According to the ancients, the concept of Twin Flames suggests that, at the moment of its creation your soul split into two equal but opposite halves. This can be best understood in comparison to the ancient Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang. The Yin/Yang symbol, that we see everywhere these days, represents the concepts of duality and entanglement of the positive and negative, light and dark, masculine and feminine, of the whole. So your twin flame could be the other half of your soul.
What Is A Twin Flame Relationship?
If you find yourself in a twin flame relationship, and it is a bit too challenging for comfort, there is a reason. Twin flames are mirrors - so if you have some personality issues that need working on you will hit those issues face on in this union. Twin flames are not necessarily the ideal soul mate lovers if you do not want work on yourself and grow.
What Is Twin Flame Day?
International twin flame day happens each year on the Eleventh of November (11:11) This is a day that is celebrated in new age circles because of the numerological synchronicities that frequently occur. In numerology 11 is the root of all other master numbers (11/22/33). 11 signifies an old soul - and a twin flame is the each side from a split in that original soul. (Soul mates are subsequent splits that happen as we all evolve and expand our universe) 11:11 represents a gateway for those two original halves of your soul coming together once again in a concurrent human life time. This is a magical day to start attracting the love of your life, or celebrating with the love of your life if you have already reunited.
Many sceptics say that if we are souls who keep reincarnating, why is Earth's population expanding so much? The answer was explained to me in my Akashic Mystery School (a place I actively visit in lucid dreams) like this:
As human beings, when we grow, each cell in our bodies expand, stress, and then split in two. As each of those cells grow, stress, and split in two we keep growing. The same happens with souls. The first spilt formed twin flame souls. Subsequent splits form soul mates. The universe expands as the collective consciousness (Akashic Realm), contained in each soul, expands. As each soulmate reincarnates we get our population growth.
So you may find a soul mate in this life, you have a strong affinity with who will most likely be a later soul split. Or you may find your "twin flame" soulmate, which would be the reunion of that original soul split - or at least an early one. As the name suggests, these flaming twin souls are far more emotional and energetically flamboyant.
Here's the kicker on soul mates. At some level we are ALL a soul mate of each other. God is our original soul, and we have all grown, stressed, split and expanded from there. We truly are each others brothers and sisters.
What is a twin flame doing to find you?
Your twin flame may be working on finding you right now. That may involve embracing the law of attraction to help you cross paths in some way. Perhaps he or she is seeing you in their dreams and actively working on the clues to find you. Or your twin may be seeking psychic advice. Could you multiply the effect by mirroring any of these things?
