A twin flame or soulmate relationship often acts as a mirror of ourselves. It is not just the mirroring of our behaviors, tastes, and experiences, but of ourselves as a whole. It is a true reflection of your inner and outer self being reflected back to you through the divine twin flame and soulmate connection. At the first moments of interacting with a twin flame or soulmate, we may be stricken with amazing similarities. Twin flames and soulmates usually discover they have taken the same twists and turns on their individual journeys through life. We may have had similar experiences in our lives that are quite unusual for most people.
We may learn our twin flame or soulmate has the same moral compass, plans for the future and personal goals as us. At first it might appear sheer coincidence, but at some point, coincidence goes right out the window. You know this is your twin flame or soulmate, because you appear to have been mirroring each other for quite some time. There are so many parallels and so much synchronicity between you. You know that you they really understand you on a deeper level.
You may discover there were many times you were in the same place or town at the same time. There may have been places that you loved to go, and so did they. You never ran into one another, because it was not yet time to connect. Your lives, and the mirroring of each other, have set you up for your first encounter. You could be from completely different countries. Both of you could speak different languages. You may have been raised with different religions.
Yet the mirroring with your twin flame or soulmate is still present. The mirror, and similar life experiences between twin flames and soulmates actually strengthens the bond they share. There is sense of understanding and safety often makes each twin flame and soulmate feel comfortable. Not only looking into the mirror of their twin flame or soulmate, but looking deeper into themselves.
Even twin flames and soulmates are not perfect people. They remain two individuals with a shared spiritual destiny. They may also have moments where they expose a side of themselves to the other that isn’t exactly pretty. Due to the mirroring nature of these relationships both will be able to experience personal growth. To do so they must address negative behavior patterns. What they see in one another they also see in themselves, whether that is good or bad.
Here is a simple example. Your twin flame or soulmate gets frustrated in traffic and becomes snippy with you when you ask a question. And you then get snippy right back. You reacted to what was being reflected to you. Both of you are being shown you need to deal with frustrations in a better, more adult, way. You will see the similarities in how you both handle frustration and the hurt that frustration causes one another. The mirror helps you each grow separately and as well as together as you work through the issues reflected in the mirror.
