The Other Half of You
It is not really all that long ago that the term “Twin Flames” came into humanity’s awareness. I’ve only become acquainted with it myself a few months ago. For much longer, we have known about soul mates. Many of us have dreamed of meeting someone that instantly we would know was our true love and would make us feel complete. We accepted that soul mates were the ultimate union and life couldn’t get any better than that. Now we are hearing that Twin Flame unions are much more wonderful and powerful. So, if that is the case, why haven’t we known about Twin Flames before this?
In order to best answer this question, we have to first look at how souls were formed. Souls are vehicles for the consciousness and expression of the Ultimate Creator, being created from original and unique blueprints of the Creator. Souls, at this level, reflect the oneness of the Creator, the androgynous whole, a perfect harmony of both the feminine and masculine divine aspects of Father/Mother God.
As souls moved outward from the Creator, the out breath of Brahma, to experience every facet of creation, by necessity they divided into smaller and smaller particles as they descended the dimensional ladder. However, the soul remained androgynous until the last division, in which the soul split into two separate aspects, one taking on the image of the masculine, while the other taking the feminine form.
Whether or not it was intended that Twin Flames would always stay together, our Creator honors each soul’s free will, thus encouraging each aspect of the soul to express their individuality and to follow their own free will. In time, many Twin Flames chose to go their separate ways.
Modern day prophet Edgar Cayce told us that in the beginning “male and female were as in one”. He also described Atlantis as being the place where the first separations occurred of humans into male and female entities.
Shirley MacLaine in her latest book, I’m All Over That, discusses her memory of being androgynous in one of her Lemurian incarnations, an Earthly civilization that fell before Atlantis. “My state of being and that of others around me was peaceful and serene. Procreation occurred through the power of the mind in deep meditation. Each of us had male and female genitalia, but what was important was the desire of the soul, which was made manifest through connecting to the God source. Each human had an equal vibration of yin and yang, female and male. At some point in Lemurian history, some of us became intrigued with the idea of dividing the yin and the yang vibration so we could observe the other with more objectivity. I was one of those who agreed to participate in what came to be called sexual division.”
After Shirley describes the “surgery” in which her androgynous incarnation became two separate beings, she goes on to say, “From then on, I felt as a human being that I would always look for my other half.”
Twin Flames can be likened to magnets, where each aspect would predominantly represent one polarity, but not without a residue of the opposite polarity. It is the nature of magnets for opposite polarities to attract: positive to negative, yin to yang, masculine to feminine. Deep within our souls, we, like Shirley MacLaine, are always searching and yearning to be reconnected with the other half of our soul, our Twin Soul, our Twin Ray.
Through many incarnations on Earth, Twin Flames continued to gather experiences at the directive of the Creator, but now it was as a half of the whole. We are fast approaching the climax of all our experiencing in the lower levels of vibration. The journey still continues, though, as we begin making preparations for our return trip back to the Creator…the in breath of Brahma…Ascension.
One essential step of our Ascension preparation is to raise our consciousness, which is bringing many truths that we have forgotten back into our knowingness. The concept of Twin Flames is one of these truths. It is generally believed that before Twin Flames can come back together as one, each half needs to do its own healing and to strive towards becoming more whole, to balance their feminine and masculine sides and to raise their vibration towards enlightenment. It is also believed that many Twin Flames will reunite during their last lifetime on Earth with the intention of ascending together.
How to know when you’ve met your Twin Flame?
You could say that this question is not necessary to even ask, as the answer is quite simple…you just know.According to St. Germain, Twin Flames have “an identical resonance reverberation of the same frequency within the different (male-female) bodies of energy”. He says that awakening to who and what you really are and loving every part of yourself unconditionally is what creates the resonance within your being that will attract that identical essence within the other half of your soul, calling it to come forth so you can merge back together.
When you’ve met your Twin Flame, you will have an immediate feeling that you already know each other and have known each other for…well, forever! You will feel a profound psychic and spiritual connection with your other half that you never came close to in other relationships you have had. There are no barriers or restrictions between you, because when you look at each other you see yourself. Any issues that arise get resolved immediately, with total love and forgiveness. Trust, generosity, patience and acceptance are automatic. Your relationship has a sacredness that transcends all others and you have a deep sense of purpose, wanting to serve humanity together in a deep and meaningful way.
How to prepare to meet your Twin Flame?
It is your spiritual maturity, your embodiment of your unique divine nature and potential and living according to the Laws of Love, that allows the universe to create the special events, the synchronicity, in which you can reunite with your Twin Flame. Although it is possible to meet on the physical plane before you have both progressed far enough along the path to mastering your Divinity, your encounter will most likely be short lived in spite of its intensity. If it is in your soul plan, your preparations for Ascension will also make it possible for your eventual reunion with your Twin Flame. For some, however, the reunion may be on a different level with their Twin Flame guiding them along their spiritual journey from a higher dimension.
A relationship of Twin Flames is one that can endure beyond space and time, and through all manner of testing. As perfect as this might sound, it should not be our only focus. Ultimately, we should aspire to love, above all else, with no conditions, with no strings, with no expectations, with no exceptions. Just love for the sake of love in each and every relationship.
