Love at First Sight
Is It Possible?
A few days ago I spent almost the entire day resting and watching feel good movies that a close friend of mine had recommended. Although I did have a sore throat and low energy, I think there was a part of me that just needed a break, a respite from endless mental 3D chatter. So I settled in, blankets and pillows stacked high, ready to be swept away from everything and everyone. The weather was dark, cool and slightly rainy, too, making it the perfect movie day...
As I began watching the movies, first "Letters to Juliet," next "When In Rome," and finally "Just Wright," I felt not only love, inspiration and joy, but at the same time I was perplexed and confused by something of vast importance but just out of reach for my cognitive mind. Something did not feel right and I did not like being in the dark about it. So I chose to go to the good feeling place in the movies, the place of love, and to remain there until the message was revealed.
And here I am two days later, having mostly forgotten this topic, and I wake up with the answer. I was confused because my basic belief system is changing. Growing up in a house with limited love and affection led me to choose similar romantic relationships as an adult. What I failed to realize before this recent movie day was that YES, love at first sight is possible. It is possible for me, for you, for everyone and anyone who desires it to manifest in their lives.
This article is dedicated to exploring on a deep, spiritual level the concept of love at first sight. Even if you are like me before I woke up this morning, and you are skeptical, please read on. You will be given a chance to vote and give feedback, which I encourage you to do. Welcome to this journey!

...OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT...
What exactly does it mean to find yourself in love at first sight? Well, it doesn't exactly mean that you have "fallen" in love. Rather, it means that You are love and you experience another facet of that love for the first time through another person. When your energy encounters this other person, be it in person, over the phone, through the internet, etc., you feel an outpouring of love toward him or her in a new, unique way.
How Can It Happen?
We see love at first sight happen all the time in movies and on television, but not very often in real life, among ourselves or people we know. Why? Possibly because it requires two spiritually awake and aware individuals, both of which have harmony and balance in their lives. These individuals are called twin flames.
A twin flame is a twin soul, your vibrational match in the opposite energetic gender (can be same sex). It is a part of your soul which has incarnated into another human form. In other words, it is You. And this is why when it happens you will know it from every cell of your Being. The connection is beyond physical form and everything about it will feel good for both of you.
...I DO NOT CONSIDER MYSELF SPIRITUAL...
Can it still happen? Yes, anything is possible and everything is malleable so the future is ever changing and adjusting to our wants and desires. If you have just realized that love at first sight is possible then start now with your imagination, thoughts and intentions to bring it into your life.
...GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER...
Of course this is important. Once our higher selves have made the connection then we manifest into physical form and go from there. We will still spend time with this person learning about their life experiences and compatible interests. However, if this is your twin flame then there will be no questions about his or her authenticity. You will feel in flow when you are with this person and you will have a deeper sense that All is well.
...DOES IT HAPPEN...
Before we are born into this physical dimension, we exist as spirit bodies in another, higher frequency realm. We choose our families based on a plan for spiritual growth. Sometimes our lives seem unusually difficult or painful, however, this is exactly the type of incarnation advanced souls choose so that they may be called to awaken and remember their life purpose.
As we learn and grow in our lives we express our free will by actively choosing our life lessons. If a problem exists in our lives it is because we have drawn it to ourselves so that we may learn from it and move forward. Those who are conscious learn from life. Those who choose to remain unconscious do so by refusing to learn and to understand life as the adventure and the privilege that it is.
...CAN IT HAPPEN FOR ME...
If we want to connect with our twin flame then the likelihood of it happening increase a million fold when we live our lives in a fully loving manner. By this I mean that we focus on love and allow it to be our guiding force.
Five things you can do to improve your focus on love include meditation, prayer, having fun, relaxing and giving thanks.
This is a very important component of spirituality because it is a time to connect directly with your Inner Being. The key is to silence your brain and listen to your voice from within. As you practice you will be able to hear answers to your personal questions. There are many wonderful resources for meditation. Below are a few of my favorites:
When we pray we talk to our Inner Beings, God, spirit guides, angels, etc. It is a time to give thanks and to ask in a positive way for what we want in our lives. Sometimes we are trained to think and speak in a negative fashion, meaning, we ask for things that we really do not want. Pay attention to your words when you pray because we really do receive what we ask for.
Grown-ups too many times forget the joy and inhibition of childhood. We are too busy working and being caregivers. Fun time is a key to living a spiritual, loving life. So find for yourself what it means to have fun and take the time each and every day to do it. You will feel immediately better for doing it and the rewards are abundant.
On Having Fun:
This is another important factor of loving that adults so often forget. While exercise is important, our bodies also need down time to recuperate from daily stress. When relaxation is absent from our lives many times our bodies rebel and acquire illness or injuries. Listen to your body and provide ample sleep, relaxation and gentleness. This includes listening to soft music, lighting aromatic candles, massage, taking a hot bath, reading in bed, and putting your feet up as often as possible.
Even in times of great challenge, it is important to find something to be thankful for. This shifts our energy ever so slightly from one of resistance to one of allowing. If you are not in a loving relationship then focusing on what you do not have draws more of it to you. It is the Universal Law of Attraction. So find the things you appreciate and focus on them instead. If you can find nothing at all to be thankful for then use your imagination; it works, too.

...THE CONNECTION IS NOT RECIPROCATED...
As uncommon as it is to meet a twin flame, it is possible that when you meet yours he or she may not be at a place either emotionally, spiritually or mentally to recognize you. When this happens it is important to remain spiritually grounded, trusting your life path and higher purpose. Release all feelings and resistance around the situation so that you may remain in the flow of Universal Love.
...IS THIS THE SAME THING...
Let's not confuse twin flame love with romantic love. Romantic love often presents itself as infatuation and lust followed by commitment and often times results in resentment and distrust. In it's original form, twin flame love is absolutely pure, fully balanced and in harmony, much like Yin Yang energy. When one experiences twin flame love in his or her life, it will feel normal. There will be the usual ebb and flow of life around the relationship, however, it will remain powerfully loving, strong and supportive.
...WE MEET AND LOVE FIZZLES
Sometimes two flames unite and recognize each other and begin to take the necessary steps to full immersion in each others' lives when something unforeseen happens and interrupts the process. In this case, whether you are united depends on the situation. It could be that you are both able to move through the restriction, together, further evolving your bond and deepening your connection. Or it may be time to move on toward your next TwinFlame connection. The way you know which is best is by listening to your body because it will never lie. Do what brings you joy and you will be on your love filled, divine path.
...WILL IT HAPPEN FOR ME...
This is a question that only you can answer. If you decide you want to meet your twin flame in this lifetime then begin by following the above tips. Stop listening to your mind. Start listening to your intuition, the voice from within. Stop doing what other people believe you should do. Start doing what feels good to you. Open your imagination. Pay attention to synchronicities and dreams. Have fun and most of all keep loving.
Can It Be?
... THAT I HAVE MORE THAN ONE TWINFLAME...
Absolutely, yes, You can have more than one TwinFlame. There are infinite possibilities in the universe and All things are flexible and changeable, instantaneously. As long as you continue to focus on loving intentions toward yourself and others, you are on the path to meeting your Beloved. Let go of worrisome thoughts, free your mind, relax, breathe, trust and allow your life to be fun and enjoyable every day. This is your divine calling.
