Twin Souls: The Physical Signs


When you meet your twin soul there are not only spiritual signs but physical signs too. Because of the constant and intense exchange of energy between the twins, certain changes begin to happen between both of them.

Physical Sign 1: Gestures/Mannerisms

Twin souls are really two independent souls, two whole souls, and together they form a supersoul. Because they are two physical beings with distinct lives and histories, each has his and her own way of moving and being. Each person has his or her own way of walking, speaking, chewing, dancing, and so on. One of the first things that happen in a twin soul relationship is that they begin to pick up the other’s gestures. At first these changes are so small and subtle that neither realizes that they are doing. The changes are gradual. For example, let’s say that he likes to lean his weight on his right side, put his hands in his pant’s pockets, look over his left shoulder, when waiting. Then, as the time passes and you two get closer together, you start to lean your weight on your right side. Nothing major, nearly everyone does this, but you used to stand evenly on both legs when waiting. Another example: she has this gesture she does where she lifts her right eyebrow at certain thoughts, (impressed, annoyed, whatever). Then one day, a friend or family member stares at you strangely. You ask why. Well, because you’re raising your right eyebrow at him or her. Maybe you were not aware that you were doing that.

These changes, better yet, these exchanges between the twins is due to the loss of identity. Each one is melting into each other, become more and more one. Of course, because each one has a physical body and we live in a physical world, there is a limit to how much the twins can physically become one.

This physical sign starts to come in the relationship once has it reached the spiritual aspect. Once the twins have connected in a spiritual manner, meaning that they meditate or dream of each other, lights begin to appear. These lights are not in the physical world (occasionally they are, but for simplicity, we’ll focus on these particular lights). At this stage, the twin soul relationship has been happening for awhile now. At this stage, the twins are so connected spiritually, emotionally, and mentally that they can communicate with each other without physical speaking or writing. This means that they can either know each other’s feelings without verbally/physically communicating them, or that they communicate through dreams, that they meet through meditative states. One way that these strange lights manifest is when the eyes are closed. Many on spiritual forums share similar experiences, some of them not in twin soul relationships but in the middle of a spiritual awakening. It is often described as white light, strings of white light, and so on. Imagine being half asleep and suddenly lightning flashing in through your window. You quickly open your eyes but there is nothing there; not a cloud and maybe you don’t even have a window in your room. If a neurologist reads this he will probably say we all have a neurological situation going on, but this is the light of the soul. It could be the light of your own soul, your own third eye opening, or the light of your partner’s soul. It could also be the light of the spiritual world, of the higher planes, even of higher beings. Whatever it is, when it is experienced with a partner with whom you have spiritual and deep love connection, it is a sign of a twin soul.

Physical Sign 3: You Become Actual Twins!

It is weird, but you actually start to look like each other. This third sign mixes with the first because they are, in a way, happening simultaneously. Maybe this manifests in your choice of clothes. Colors match, and not intentionally. Smiles begin to seem similar. The way you speak also sounds the same. You finish each other’s sentences. When it comes to physical, biological aspects of the body, the eyes reflect the oneness of the twins. It does not matter that the eye color of the twins does not match, what matches is the spirit within and it is perceived as being the same in both. Perhaps the oldest twins, the ones that have met many times before in other lives, will have physical similarities (for example: similar facial structures). Aside from the physical similarities, the twins begin to move as one. They begin to think almost in the same way. At the highest point of the relationship, where both are the closest they could possibly be to being one, they think and feel as one. But because they are two individuals and are regarded as being so similar they are named twins.

In any other type of relationship there can be some of these physical signs. Soul mates can certainly begin to dress similarly or finish each other’s sentences. It is the spiritual aspect, the spiritual wisdom and knowledge that the twins have and gain through each other that differentiates it from any other relationship. Also, soul mates do not tend to experience spiritual lights, telepathy, or meetings in the spiritual world. There is something of these categories in all relationships because they are all part of the same thing: love.









The Near Twin

"Conversation in the Rain" by Dom Crossley

“Conversation in the Rain” by Dom Crossley

There are soul mates. There are twin souls. Within the category of soul mates there are a variety of sub categories, each one providing a different facet of love. We all have soul mates and we all have twin souls; however, not everyone is here to be with their twin, not everyone is looking for a soul mate, not everyone wants or needs the same things. Twin souls are rare and the relationship, whatever form it takes, is strenuous. Aside from the oddities that make the twin soul relationship rare (telepathy, spiritual aspects, fear, doubt), there is what is known as the near twin.

Often writers of this unconfirmed, unproven topic, ignore the subject of the near twin. Why? Well, because what there is to say about the near twin is not pleasant. Perhaps fear of losing readers or followers keeps writers treading on egg shells. Or, these writers don’t know what they’re writing about and get their information from other writers who also don’t know anything. The near twin is often considered a negative, something that should be avoided, and it is barely understood. The near twin adds another level of complexity to the already complex twin soul topic. What the near twin brings to the scene may be contradictory to what is already understood or it may seem that way at first, causing fear and pain. That is why this topic is avoided. I don’t know if everyone in a twin soul relationship will meet a near twin, but it seems to be a necessary part of the soul’s evolution. Keep in mind that not all of this and not all of what is written on the topic is definitive. How could it be? We are exploring and learning and wherever I have doubts I will let you know.

What is the near twin? If the twin soul is the other half, the perfect counterpart for the soul, then the near twin is the quarter half. The near twin resembles the twin soul. It is not the quarter half, that is just a metaphor, but the resemblance between the twin and the near twin is so great that it can be indistinguishable. Twin souls share the same energy, the same mind, the same heart. But this is not in the physical, it is in the spiritual that the twins were one and can again become one. This unity manifests in the physical through a very passionate and difficult love. It is a love that is equal both in giving and receiving. The near twin, however, does not share the same energy, the same soul energy, but it resembles your own energy. Each twin has a near twin. Just as everyone has a twin soul, everyone has near twin.

In a situation where the twins have somehow met, either physically or spiritually, and the near twins appear, confusion, discord, fear, anger, and fights arise. It could be that both twins individually and separately run into their own near twin, or that one does be for the other, or that only one twin meets with his or her near twin. There are various reasons for meeting the near twin, many reasons and lessons. The main reason for this type of relationship is that the near twin provides lessons about love. What those lessons are is personal, varies from person to person, and how long the relationship lasts also varies. A near twin relationship can last a lifetime or just a few months.

There are signs or characteristics of the twin soul relationship and the near twin heavily resembles those signs. It is this extreme similarity between the two, the near twin and the twin, that causes confusion and doubt. Suddenly, you’re not sure if he is your twin soul? Is she really your twin? The twin soul love is profound and while enveloped in it, the twins love only each other, at least, in a manner that is unconditional. That unconditional love that many think cannot be replicated, is replicated in the near twin. There is attraction towards the near twin, love towards him or her, synchronicity, and even telepathy. Here doubt causes everything to fall apart and suddenly, they don’t know each other, don’t know if one belongs to the other, or even if this whole twin soul business is real.

It becomes about uncertainty and identity. There is a sudden apprehension in the relationship, a sudden fear of picking or loving the wrong person, even of betrayal. Twin souls are not immune to betrayal, hate, and jealousy. Often, the twin soul relationship is regarded as some sort of superior relationship and it is idealized, but it is as special as every other connection love makes throughout the planet. What makes the twin soul relationship special is the individuals, for it is supreme for them, not for everyone else. When this doubt and fear that the near twin raised sets in, it is like the beginning or like the initial twin soul meeting where the person doubts of what is real and what is imagined. You don’t know who the other person is, yet you recognize them, and so, you fear approaching him or her. Do I know you? Yes, yes I do.  What if I’ve been wrong all along? What if you are my real twin? These sort of questions bog the mind of the twin, if just one of the twins meets his or her near twin, it pulls him or her away from the true twin. The instinct, the natural response to such situation is to fight the distancing, to fight the love that was once thought unique and exclusive to one person. Here the twins fight and struggle to keep themselves together, deny the possibility of their love being shared or being universal, and they often separate.

The twin soul relationship has many cycles, each one having what one may call themes. There are cycles of intense union, either physical, sexual, or spiritual. There are cycles of challenges, financial and emotional. There are cycles of creative union where the twins work together in harmony and create. The near twin overlaps various cycles depending on the couple, on the individual, on the lessons that need to be learned. For others, for those that have never met their twin soul, for those in a relationship with their near twin, it may be that the near twin cycle could last a lifetime. Near twins and twins are about experiencing an elevated aspect of love, something that allows one to see behind the veil.

What does it feel like when you’re with your soul-mate?


“Sprout” by Hana Jang

It’s a funny thing, finding a soul-mate. There are many soul-mates, different kinds/types of soul-mates, and we all have soul-mates. But there is always that one special soul-mate, that one person that you can spend the rest of your life with. The romantic soul-mate is the one relationship that can last a lifetime. Out of all the connections you can make with other soul-mates, with lovers, friends, and family, the romantic soul-mate is the one you feel closest to.

Considering that love is this intangible thing and that the idea of a soul-mate implies the belief of a soul; thereby, reincarnation, the romantic soul-mate comes across as a very familiar person. A feeling of having already met this person is overwhelming. There is excitement in your belly and you laugh easily at his or her jokes. Often, you say the same things at the same time, or one says what the other was thinking. These types of soul-mates have this affinity to each other because they have already met before. The reason there is such familiarity and such passion in a soul-mate relationship is because there is that familiar spark, that familiar energy, and a love that has been around for long time.

The romantic soul-mate is the one you feel closest to, the one you feel most connected to, the one you know that you already know. How does this connection come about? You might notice a staggering amount of coincidences. You both hangout at the same café often, you both like the same music, constantly running into each other, and so on. So, basically, you have a lot in common. Although you have a lot in common, there will inevitably be disagreements and differences. Differences in religion and politics are common and often threatening to a soul-mate relationship, regardless if it is a romantic soul-mate or amiable soul-mate. But because this is the soul-mate, differences are overcome, either quickly or gradually, depending on the couple. Romantic soul-mates, when they are very close to each other, will want to work over whatever difficulties. There is a persistence to this kind of love, even if it does wane every now and then, and deep commitment to each other.

So, what does it feel like? Establishing the connection or relationship feels easy. The best way to describe this relationship is to say that it comes naturally. There is an ease or flowing to the relationship that other soul-mate relationships do not match. It is exciting and new, yet familiar at the same time, and people comment on how good you two look together, and a feeling everything being right and good shines over everything else. You come to the realization that you are not alone, that you have a partner even if he or she is not perfect, but it is someone that can and will be there for you.

Love, in all types of relationships, with or without a spiritual touch, requires work and commitment. The romantic soul-mate understands this and there begins to be harmony between the couple. How do you find this soul-mate? You cannot look at someone and just say, “that is the one.” Some might say that you can, but it is more of an internal thing; meaning that you feel something that is inexplicable and you will just know. This romantic soul-mate will be attracted to you, it will be a mutual joining and attraction, and it will just happen.
