I remember getting a feeling of ‘liberated’ when I read a definition of ‘soulmates’. Until then, I was under the impression that soulmates were essentially lovers or life partners.
But this definition put it as someone with whom one is connected in a special way and a soulmate can be a parent, teacher, friend, sibling, mentor, mentee or even a lover!
I have a couple of blog posts here around that definition.
But, nothing like that happened when I read about ‘twin flames’. The details I read on it categorically said it’s different from soulmates.
And like soulmates, it can be anybody but who’s a mirror image of you. Interestingly a twin flame need not be exact you, but someone who compliments your traits and make it a whole.
For example, one of the twin flames can be very religious while the mirror image twin flame, more practical, while still religious.
I thought I would never have a twin flame till I came across this.
That’s item eleven of the 18 twin flame descriptions which read:
“11. You are one another’s teachers, best friends, therapists, and so on. You have such a deep and layered connection that you do a lot more for one another than expected.”
I have one now. The one who discusses health, workouts, Apple Watch and who introduced me to ‘intermittent fasting’ and checks on me on a daily basis. And we fit into definition number 11 and hence ‘Twin Flames’
