Someone asked me to write about Twin Flames and I have to say I have often wondered about it really and then not wondered about it. Simply because the only thing I can base it on is my own understanding and usually I keep that to myself, simply because at times I have seen people base it on a physical attraction and connection rather than a higher connection at a soul and beyond level. So it has often felt like talking about religion or politics at times... Awkward in getting across perspective and understanding, so I have a tendency to reserve comments.
I recently was talking to someone about their understanding and was trying to get to a common ground between the two, not in a discussion but a mutual connection of interested wisdom. We both believed in twin souls or twin flames and their discussion was from a feeling point of view which was great. My perspective was from a seeing point of view. So it was really interesting to discuss what they felt and I felt and saw at times.
I do not to a degree believe that it is a soul that has split, rather two very unique and complimentary beings have chosen a soul connection here on this plane to mutually benefit the experience here. Within that experience they have the capability of connecting all of the chakra points in a mutually beneficial "exchange" of energy and purpose to increase what they are meant to do at a spiritual level here on the earth plane. Like polar opposites at times, there is some amazing similarities between twin souls/flames if they are lucky enough to reconnect here.
It is also important to understand that gender has nothing to do with a twin flame/soul connection. The bodies that we have chosen here on the earth plane are for our learning and experiences alone. At a soul level the connection is there regardless of the gender. The chakras all connect and there is a distinct feeling of "coming home". There is a telepathic connectivity between the two souls or beings that is above the level of comprehension of others usually. Drawn like magnets, if the twin flames/souls are lucky enough to reconnect here, they are given tremendous opportunity to grow at the soul/being level.
Subconsciously the twin flames/souls can end up searching elusively for a deeper connection beyond a human level to find that "connection" or experience again that they may have remembered from other lives or experiences.
I have asked Jet to explain why it can burn so deeply in our hearts the need to reconnect at this level with a twin flame/soul or why, if we understand that we are more than just human, there is a need to find our "own" or find others who are equally aware of multiple learning and multiple connectivity.
I sit with my feet in the sea on my rock in the "In between", the moon's gleam brilliantly in the night sky and create a pathway across the top of the water almost out to them. I feel like I could walk across that path of moonlight and reach out and touch them at times. Jet descends like an errant star falling but with purpose and shimmers in the darkness illuminated within a kaleidoscope of rainbow colours, like a prism caught by the sun.
"Explain please". I ask. He settles in the air in front of me and I watch him contentedly, he seems ever-moving, a flowing tide of colours rippling upon himself. I wait. Not one of my strongest points, patience but never can you rush a Guide I have found, so I wiggle my toes in the ocean and wait.
"To understand the connection between two beings, and it is two beings, not the other half of you. Having said that ALL are created from the Source and thereby are interconnected by this Universal Love. You must understand that it is an arrangement or agreement to come back together in this realm for optimum learning and growth. It brings with it the capability of advancing the beings by that unconditional exchange of both energy and love, amplifying purpose and wisdom, thereby accelerating vibrational frequency and energy".
"Is it affected by one party not remembering?" He sighs. "The biggest challenge undertaken when coming to the Earth Plane was the forgetting. This has caused major frustration in all parties, particularly those who were destined to join together in this realm to accelerate both learning and vibration. Many do not connection, or if do meet their twin flame/soul, have either had too many "bad" experiences, or have simply forgotten too much".
"To be able to connect at the correct frequency and energy, you must be both at the same level of frequency, or will be too influenced by doubts, fears or past experiences. This makes it very complex and complicated for both parties must have a connection of the heart Chakra in all its entirety to enable all of the Chakras to "engage".
"So what about others? Are they never destined to feel this connection? Can you go through your whole life without making a connection like this?"
"A raised awareness is crucial for understanding a complete connection of this nature, the correct frequency and situations. Couples who are in love can reach this level of connection, but we have found that they have trouble in sustaining keeping all of the Chakras engaged in your current society, simply by other interactions, pressures and demands you perceive your life has. Some people will not change their frequency enough in this understanding to recognise they have met a twin flame/soul and will be content with whom they choose to have their lives with. This is as it is meant to be, for there is still learning and growth. It is not crucial to meet your twin flame/soul, it is merely an opportunity for growth of both".
"I know people who search for their twin flame/soul". "Yes, however bear in mind that all learn here for this is truly a learning plane and the learning is as much or as little as that individual chooses. They can search for something only to not find what they were looking for, or that they have missed the value of the people presented under their noses. All lives have such incredible value here, never forget that for all of you are part of a bigger picture, a bigger understanding and at the end of the day, this is how it is meant to be".
I look out over the sea. You know I work with the Guides all the time, they surprise me, cajole me, growl at me when they need to, and I feel like I have yet still so very, very much to learn. I think that is probably the best answer really. Is there twin flames/souls, yes. However, within that don't dismiss the learning that each person brings to you. Part of a much bigger plan, bigger than any of us can see right at this present time, there is an amazing amount of experiences. No one person comes into your life by co-incidence, no one, please remember that.
Instead of trying to work out who they were then, or whether they are your long-lost friend from years ago, try to work out what they come into your life to do now. For now is the time of change, and now is the time, to start recognising that WE ALL are in this together because we are here, right here on the Earth Plane for this time of greatest change. THAT is truly the most important bit. : )
