Twin Souls: Lists of Characteristics

Standard

Every twin soul relationship is different, but there are certain characteristics that define this relationship. Here are two lists of relationship characteristics for quick reference. The first list is the most common traits of the relationship and the second list is the rarer or more advanced traits.

Common Characteristics of a Twin Soul Relationship:

  • spiritual revolution (becoming more spiritual, development of intuition and psychic abilities, change of religion or beliefs)
  • dreams of the other person
  • ability to feel what the other is feeling
  • similar life paths or childhood (often the life of one twin reflects the opposite of the other while still being similar)
  • coincidences (meeting each other without intention, running into each other without planning)
  • signs (either numbers, colors, symbols, songs, even message sent through people, things that happen at just the right moment to mean something)
  • feeling like you’ve know this person since before anything (and on the same note, feeling like no one understands what you are going through)
  • questioning reality and your sanity (Is this possible? Am I going crazy?)

Rarer/Advanced Characteristics of a Twin Soul Relationship:

  • Telepathy (ability to have full conversations without physically being together)
  • Sexual Telepathy (ability to have sex without being physically together)
  • Energetic influence (ability to affect each other’s lives with intent/will and/or through magickal practice)
  • Enlightenment
  • Deliberate dream communication
  • Deliberate exchange of thought/ideas/etc.
  • Knowledge of previous lives
  • Ability to identify surrounding soul mates, near twin, etc.

The difference between the lists and the different stages of the twin soul relationship is awareness and will. As the twins join together, their awareness expands, allowing them to connect more.

If you think there should be something else added to either list, comment below and I’ll add. To read detailed posts on the topic read this  and this.

Twin Souls: The Narrow Telescope

Standard

Twins souls, twin rays, twin flames, whatever you want to call them, dance through the universe, pirouetting around each other. Because of who they are to each other, they focus on each other. Essentially, one becomes the sun of the other. Or one becomes the moon of the other. There is a hint, if not blatant, of worship for the other. This love is deeper than what words can describe and when I say worship it is not in the sense that one bows down to the other; rather that both are in awe of each other and have the utmost respect for each other. It’s almost like you are afraid to touch him or her because everything is as it should be and you don’t want to change that.

There is plenty of confusion out there concerning twin souls. Many confuse twins with soul mates. Many disregard the idea. And then there is the near twin. And there is love in all these different types of relationships, making the thing even more confusing. But what happens to twin souls once they discover each other is that they begin to see the world through a very narrow telescope. This can happen to soul mates. This can happen to anyone. Again, what distinguishes the twin souls is the spiritual aspect of it.

Once the twins discover each other, however that may be (spiritual or physical), they become each other’s focus. Whatever spiritual practice each had starts to be focused on the twin, whether it is about reuniting with the twin, or discovering more about this thing. In a word, obsession. The twins become obsessed with each other. Again, obsession happens to everyone, but it is the kind of obsession and how one obsesses that is different for the twins. The distinctions between these love souls (twins, near twins, soul mates) are sometimes very fine. Because love is so massive, because it is an element of the soul, there is overlap in each category. The universe is fluid, not clear-cut and concrete.

Suddenly, the twins’ main concern is to reunite. They become focused on finding each other or on being together. Friendships are lost or sacrificed in order to allow them to be together. The twin comes first, the twin comes before anything else, nothing matters as much as the twin. This is when each twin starts to lose themselves in the other. Each twin loses sight of what is important. This phase can be classified as unhealthy, but it is inevitable. Although being hyper-focused on another person, it is a part of the twin soul relationship and the benefits outweigh the negative. This is what distinguishes the twin soul relationship from any other, meaning that soul mates that obsess over each other end up losing so much more. The twins will gain much wisdom and spiritual knowledge through this process of integration with the other.

This tends to happen at the beginning of the relationship. Everything is fresh, new, and they are both discovering themselves and each other. But this phase or cycle can stretch out further into the relationship and it happens in waves that vary in intensity. For example, at the beginning the  twins will want nothing but to be together all of the time. Later on, one of the twins will want to separate, to have some personal space. So here the focus will be inverted, yet the focus will remain of the twin soul. This means that things will be upside down, things will be reversed. Some refer to this as a separation cycle and term the twins the runner and the chaser. But each twin will take turns being the runner or chaser.

There, it seems, is very little the twins can do to control these cycles. The twins go through these cycles because they are lessons and these lessons are dictated by the universe.

Twin Souls vs. Soul Mates: The Difference at the Beginning

Standard

“Zinnowitz Beach” by Adrian D.

What is the difference between a soul mate and a twin soul? For some, these terms are interchangeable. Some people use the term twin soul to describe any romantic relationship. And for others that have never heard of the term twin soul, they use the term soul mate for every romantic relationship. But, that is not the case. As always, I am also going to include the other perspective, and that is that such things as twin souls and soul mates don’t exist. But, I think that they do and I think using these two terms interchangeably causes confusion, misinformation, disappointment, and so on.

See, we are talking about love. Love is something intimate that every person experiences differently and that makes it difficult to talk about in broad terms. We’re trying to specify and categorize this huge, metaphysically gaseous thing and that is going to create grey areas. A certain points, soul mates and twin soul characteristics overlap and this can cause even more confusion.

But there is one easy way to describe the main difference of these relationships: soul mate relationships are easy while twin soul relationships are filled with hardship. Now, I want to be careful in explaining what I mean by easy.

When soul mate find each other there is an instant connection. They start talking easily. They have a lot in common. They have the same interests. For example, there is a bus stop. At the bus stop there is a woman waiting for the bus. Man comes around and also waits for the bus, taking his place two feet away from her. They look at each other, casually, and immediately and simultaneously each thinks and feels “Hey! I know you! How you doin’?”

So, when I say a soul mate relationship is easy I do not mean that the couple won’t have challenges. Soul mates, like everyone else, will deal with jealousy, hate, fear, and anything else life wants to throw at them. But what makes or shows the soul mate connection is that familiarity with each other.

On the contrary, when twin souls find each other it is a bit different. Let’s keep the same scenario to illustrate the differences. There is a bus stop. At the bus stop there is a woman waiting for the bus. Man comes around and also waits for the bus, taking his place two feet away from her. They look at each other, casually, and immediately and simultaneously each becomes tense. Something at the core of both twins tenses and each thinks “Woa! What am I doing in there?”

Each of the twins see’s herself or himself in the other and that can be unnerving. At first it is like a jolt of electricity that runs deep down the spine, deep into the very core of your soul. And it is like looking into the sun, blinding, blinding with truth. Each recognizes himself in the other and that is strange. What am I doing in there? Aren’t I here? In my own body? My god, we may have different bodies and have little physical similitude, but boy do you look like me.

This is the difference between the relationships at the beginning of each. Of course, each couple is going to experience its own beginning and each will come into their own knowledge.
