Twin Souls: Your Greatest Mirror

When I say that your twin soul is your greatest mirror I do not mean that your reflection will always be fabulous. This is true no matter how fabulous and how spiritually advanced you may be, or how great the people around you think you are. This is one thing that separates the twin soul relationship from all other types of earthy relationships. I say earthly relationships because there are the divine relationships; like you and your Higher Self, which is really just you, but way bigger; the big you. And there are the relationships you can establish with the Gods or with God and other beings of higher consciousness. The truth is that you are in a relationship with the Universe regardless of whether you found your twin soul or you think you have found your twin soul. You are in a relationship with the entire Universe and the twin soul is the physical manifestation of that.

The twin soul, being the embodiment of the divine relationships, will reflect back to you your true nature. It will reflect back your flaws, your deepest most inner workings, and it will also reflect your greatness, your divinity, and the possibilities inherent in you. So, your divine counterpart will challenge you profoundly. This may terrify you, not because he or she is too intrusive or too demanding or too judgmental, though that is how you will perceive it to be at first, but because you will be surprised, upset, frustrated, at what he or she uncovers in you.

Many do not know what a twin soul relationship is like or what it is or that it exists. Go here to read about what twin souls are. Some apply to it the ingrained expectations of how a relationship should be. This brings about great difficulties and repeating cycles of physical union and separation.

Since your twin soul is your greatest mirror he or she will reflect all aspects of your being. From your divine partner nothing will be kept from him and nothing will be kept from you. As a divine relationship (all relationships are divine somehow, just this is the ultimate earthly union for the advancement of your soul and for humanity) it brings with it a connection to spirituality. Regardless of which path it may be (Buddhism, Hinduism, Daoism, etcetera) the twin soul relationship is defined by its connection to the spiritual. And so, what this mirroring of your entire being does is it expands your consciousness and it ascends your consciousness. The rate at which a twin soul couple experiences this enlightenment, this expansion of consciousness, depends on the couple and their purpose on Earth. It can happen extremely quickly or in waves where the growth is experienced periodically, but the twins are always receiving energy and new knowledge and life challenges to further ascend and expand their being. Consciousness is limitless and so how a twin soul couple learns and expands their consciousness depends on them.

Although your twin soul will challenge you in ways you did not think possible, it will not be done from anywhere else but from the heart. All the things she will bring out from you, whether you like it or not, will be from the point of love. It will be a love that does not compare to anything less than the love of your God or Goddess (whichever you prefer or believe in. Follow what your heart tells you.) The way love is experienced by twin souls is intensely; love felt through all the bodies of the Soul at once. (Go here to read about love through the bodies of the soul and what this means.) When they fall in love they fall in love with their entire existence. Their minds are absolutely captivated by the other. Their bodies uncontrollably aroused by the mere sight of the other. Their hearts pound mutually loving each other without even knowing each other. And their souls mesh and dance with each other, mixing their energies.  Both feel absolutely unconditional love and acceptance for the other. They quickly, if not immediately, know each other’s flaws and short comings and without a conscious effort they challenge each other to improve or eliminate those flaws. But still, no matter how flawed the other may be, they do not stop loving each other. This love is insistent. Even after long periods of not physically being together or not expressing or being conscious of this love, it is instantly ignited, powerfully burning internally and externally. No matter how much one of the twins tries to stop loving the other, it is not possible, even in hate.

There are situations where one twin soul, because of his or her experiences in this and perhaps other lives, does not accept the other twin. For example, it can be that the twin does not meet his or her expectations of physical appearance or an ideal mate. The way twin souls challenge each other is often not in a conscious manner, meaning that they are not aware that their actions are opposing to the other and causing a challenge. Life and the Universe will put the pair in situations that reflect back their consciousness. Often, they experience extremely similar experiences separately. This is because one is the female energy embodied and the other is the male energy embodied, and so both learn differently. What they are aware of is the pain and suffering that those challenges may cause. However, as the twin soul relationship progresses and the spiritual awakening continues or quickens, twins becomes aware of their hurtful and challenging behaviors.

When you look into your twin’s eyes you will look into yourself. And the limits of your body and your very soul will cease to exist. Here you will become one with the other. Love will envelope this union of souls and nothing will be hidden, nothing will be secret. Your greatest mirror will allow you to admire yourself, but also to judge yourself, allowing you, in turn, to improve yourself.

    1. Thank you. I really appreciate your feedback. And you are more than welcomed…That is a very difficult question to answer, though it is simple. You can go to the about me page to read a little about the Gods and Goddesses that I have been taught and continue to be taught by…You’ve anticipated an upcoming blog post!

  1. wow its amazing. I have a question and was wondering if I can get some guidance. I am an Indian girl who have found her twin soul but the trouble is he is gay. Each of the aspects of twin flames that you have shared matches. It took me 5 years after separating from him to reach here. I am also into a little spiritual journey of my own through which I have discovers many facts about my equation with him. Prior to all this I believed in homosexuality but now I don’t rather I find it a karmic punishment which we modern humans have learned to celebrate posing as dynamic modern beings. But the fact is it is against nature the energy balance throughout life, nature and cosmos is male and female. Homosexuality is a bottom less pit of desire with a pretense of love. Of course exceptions are there where some homosexual couples could be genuine but its definitely not the law of universe. Through this I also realized my guy is though gay but thats not his reality childhood incidents and the inner tendency to defy and dare has most probably taken him to this path.My life’s journey includes bringing him back and showing him the reality. But how should I do this opening all my cards to him will only push him back. What should I do?

    1. Hey! Thanks for your comment and question, I’m really glad to hear everything is matching with your experiences! That’s unexpected, always! You touch on various points that I will elaborate on in future posts. I’ll try to answer you question here as best as I can… Twin souls are a rare occurrence and when it happens, the feelings are mutual; there is no space in the relationship for anyone else, at least, not internally. And when twin souls incarnate together, they pull on each other, mutually. They come into this world for each other, having what the other lacks. They are the embodiment of Yin and Yang. As for homosexuality, I am not sure how it plays out with twin souls. But, I disagree with you and do not believe homosexuality is a punishment or anything negative. There is a reason the ancient Greeks praised homosexual love, why the ancient Hindus didn’t condemn it. There is also another aspect of the twin soul relationship that is very difficult and confusing, and that is the near twin. You can experience a lot of the twin soul signs and yet something is off. My recommendation is, think about why you have been going through the same thing, dealing with his homosexuality for 5 years…perhaps it is a lesson more for you than for him, to see how love is really without physical bounds, and perhaps it is he that is showing you a different part of reality, of love. Consider that this person might be a near twin. And consider finding a life journey that is beneficial to you, true to who you are and not who someone else is.

  2. i have no problem improving myself really… but ‘something’ stop me from improving myself (and right away doing self destructive things) IF i stop loving her, give up on her, deny her, doubt her, completely forget about her. i denied her so many times that means I’m in ‘shit’ mode so many times. there is a time when i completely forget about her after i met her and also before i meet her i usually feel too calm (but i like it and very dangerous since i don’t feel sad AT ALL, so doing bad stuff is perfectly fine) or too anxious (pain of ignorance) and feeling empty inside. Now, I’m devote to her because i have no choice. This time i feel perfectly calm (perfectly calm means i feel a bit sad because i feel her emotions but it makes me more careful in life and more focus because of that sadness), feeling fill inside, feeling more alive because of her.

    1. Gosh! You have a lot of questions, and that is really good. I, nor anyone else, will have all the answers to all of your great questions, but we can try and figure it out. I plan to write more on the topic because it is a very important aspect of spirituality and there are things I want to figure out too. The topic of wholeness is very spiritual and it applies to everything, not only twin souls. What it feels like, what it is, this wholeness, is a state of awareness, understanding, and peace.

  3. Melissa thank you for all your posts the information you share is priceless my question is there a way to get a twin flame confirmation say a reading or any other way?

    1. Thank you for reading! And you’re more than welcome. Confirmation. This is a tricky thing. You can get readings but be careful of who you go to because some people will tell you what you want to hear. I think that before we do anything we also look for outside validation. You can get tarot readings, psychic (scrying), pendulum readings and more. But readings can also be tricky for so so many reasons, depending on the psychic, the questions, how often you get them done, energy, belief, and so on. If you can do it yourself, better. I have a section in the blog for readings that I’m going to expand. Aside from getting readings you can always look within. This is probably the hardest thing because you have to be brutally honest and dominate your fear (of being wrong, hurt, etc). But it is also the most accurate. Twin souls have some crazy things happen to them and at some point these things add up to become your own personal irrefutable pile of evidence.
