Twin flames are exceptionally rare, yet some people seem to think they grow on trees. Unfortunately, not everyone will have the chance to encounter a twin flame relationship in this lifetime. Quite often people get twin flame relationships confused with soul mate relationships. There are many differences between twin flames and soul mates. Twin flame relationships should not have any real struggles or melodrama. Soul mate relationships, on the other hand, will drive even the sanest person over the edge as they must deal with soul mate life lessons and personal growth.
Most people would prefer to be in twin flame relationships as opposed to soulmate relationships. The main reason being that most of chaos that comes with soul mates is avoided. Twin flames recognize one another very quickly. They have a deep spiritual connection and they know it right away. Unlike soul mates, they are more than ready to embrace their connection. Twin flames have come together for a higher purpose, to serve others, not just themselves. +
If you have insecurity issues or obstacles to overcome within your relationship you are definitely with a soul mate. Soul mates can break apart time and again only to come back together. This will make you feel as if you are on the roller coaster from hell. Often one of the soul mates is not ready to embrace the soul mate connection and intense energy. They then become the soul mate runner, running from the connection. They can run from it, but they can’t hide, because this is a spiritual connection and they have contracted with their soul mate to learn important lessons and overcome important challenges.
Twin flames are soul mates who have gotten it right. They have learned the lessons they needed to previously, and now can move forward and work together for the greater good. They no longer have to work on themselves, which allows them to simply come together. Now they can use the strength that comes from their relationship to take on challenges and serve as one. Twin flames are the highest, most spiritual form of relationships. Although we would all like to enter into that kind of relationship, not all of us will connect with a twin flame. As long as we learn what is needed to in this lifetime with our soul mates, we can all have an opportunity to enter into a twin flame relationship in another lifetime.
Regardless of whether you are in a twin flame or soul mate relationship, each are equally important. The life lessons and personal growth attained from a soul mate relationship will be essential to your spiritual growth. This spiritual growth is necessary to prepare for your ultimate reunion with your twin flame, whether it is in this lifetime, or the next one. The soul mate relationship is where you learn the lessons. Twin flame relationships are where you apply them.
