Twin flame and soul mate relationships have replaced our ideas of romantic partnerships. Many people seem to be unsatisfied with regular “mundane” relationships and have the illusion twin flame and soul mate relationships are more fulfilling. But which is better? Is a twin flame relationship better than a soulmate relationship, or vice versa?
First of all to even believe in the concept of twin flame or soul mate relationships you have to believe in reincarnation. For soul mate and twin flame relationships to occur we have to incarnate, on the earthly plane, through many life times to have experiences with the same souls over and over again. If you have a problem with reincarnation due to religious dogmas, the idea of soul mates and twin flames is probably not for you.
There are many differences between soul mates and twin flames. We usually only meet a twin flame partner when we have passed through many lifetimes, and soul mate relationships, and become an advanced soul. We meet soul mates in many different forms in our lives but the soul mate romantic partners are usually the ones who provide us the greatest opportunity for personal growth. Soul mate relationships can be very difficult but you will never get to the twin flame relationship until you have forged through many soul mates.
People ask us, when they are in a soul mate relationship, if they should continue in that relationship or wait for their twin flame. The logical answer to that is if you are in a happy relationship and there is a good connection between the two of you why would you want to end it to wait for a twin flame to enter your life. Not everyone will meet a twin flame partner in this lifetime. Its just not possible. Even though a lot of twin flames are experiencing the twin flame reunion than ever before, many of us just won’t meet our twin flame because we are not spiritually ready, even though we may think we are. The spiritual answer is there is a reason why the two of you are together for this moment in time.
Likewise people insist that they are in a twin flame relationship when in truth it isn’t a twin flame connection. When we tell them it is a soul mate connection they have to their romantic partner, they often get defensive. The reality is many people have misconceptions about twin flame relationships and believe a super charged connection automatically makes it a twin flame relationship. This is simply not so. Furthermore, many people who are in an intense soul mate relationship can confuse it with a twin flame relationship.
There are many soul mate tests that must be passed before you are ready for a twin flame relationship. Some of the lessons will be very challenging and difficult to learn as they embody embracing the concepts of unconditional love, patience and forgiveness. Many people have a difficult time detaching from their soul mate during times of separation or break-up and can become obsessed with winning them back. Twin flames, if separated for a time, have faith in the connection and that the souls will eventually reunite. This only comes from experiences learned in prior relationships. The soul mate relationship is where we learn the lessons and the twin flame relationship is where we apply the lessons.
If you are experiencing a soul mate relationship in your life right now you signed up for it before you were born. There is a reason you both decided to find each other in this life time and experience your connection. Rather than focusing on whether you would be better off in a twin flame relationship, it is really in your best interest to focus on the life lessons before you created by your soul mate experience. They are in your life for a reason. Perhaps the soul mate relationship will last. Then again perhaps it is preparing you to meet your twin flame.
The real question we need to ask ourselves, however, is do we really need a twin flame or soul mate in our lives to have a happy romantic relationship? If you are with someone who makes you happy and respects you, does it matter if they came with a label of JOE? The spiritual and metaphysical world has become so wrapped up on labelling everything some people miss the point entirely. The relationship, not matter its definition, is in your life for a reason. Discover that reason and enjoy your time with them.
