Twin flame love is sometimes described as fairy-tale love. How to recognize your twin flame when you meet them?
As people and relationships develop, so does the way that we fall in love and love others. There are a lot of different kinds of love out there, and when you’re in the midst of a loving relationship, it can be difficult to differentiate which type of love you are experiencing.
Twin flame love or twin connections are confusing because there are so many definitions as to what it actually is.
Plato refers to ‘the other half’ in his writings, and twin flames are essentially what he is referring to. They are the exact opposite of you, but you share a strong magnetism that is almost impossible to ignore.
How twin flame love is different to other forms of love
A twin fame is different to a soulmate for a number of reasons. While they may share certain characteristics, which can make it difficult to understand the differences between them, they are inherently different from each other.
You have your own souls, yet, they are still the other half of your own. Initially, this may seem confusing but, in reality, it simply means that the soul of each partner essentially represents the yin and yang of each other.
You do not ‘complete’ one another in the same way as a soul mate, but your opposites make it feel as though you do. They add aspects to your life which had not been there previously, the same way you do for them. Opposites attract after all.
You have an intense bond that is much stronger than any other bond you have in either a romantic or familiar relationship. The turbulence and arguments you go through with a twin flame can be difficult but they only strengthen the relationship that you share.
You feel almost lost without them and they mean the world to you; when you are apart it feels as though their presence is always there.
Your relationship develops quickly, meaning that others may tell you’re moving too fast. When twin souls meet, the connection is instant and the improvement in both lives is vast, meaning that it is natural for the relationship to move very quickly, as both partners feel an intense energy drawing them to the other.
This development helps you to discover gifts within yourself that you didn’t know you had.
They will bring out the best in you and show you the talents you never knew you had. They will push you to reach your goals and can even show you ways of doing this that you didn’t know existed. The incredible improvement that a twin flame can bring to your life is all part of the draw which makes the relationship and bond so special.
They will both encourage and inspire you to reach your goals and open your mind to goals you never dreamed you could achieve.
The relationship is always intense and will become a focal point in your life. Twin flames can cause a commotion, but will very quickly become one of the most important people in your life. It will end one of two ways, a meaningful and passionate love, or a complete disaster.
The intensity can be hard to take, and without compromise and communication, it can become a difficult love to maintain healthily.
If twin flames are ready to be together in a romantic way, they will have one of the most intense and incredible loves that a human can experience. Twin flame love is sometimes described as fairy-tale love, as it is a soul-feeding love that is written about in books and only captured in films. If you are lucky enough to find your twin flame, the relationship should be treated with caution.
Enjoy it to its fullest capacity, but allow both partners time to get used to the intensity and be open and honest when things get difficult. Your twin flame is another version of you, and it can be difficult to get used to which is why a lot of these relationships tend to end turbulently.
If your twin flame love comes to an end, you should still be grateful to have it, as many twin flame souls wait lifetimes to finally encounter one another.
How to recognise them
Not everyone is lucky enough to meet their twin flame in their lifetime, but when you do, you just know. Twin flame love is the reason for beliefs such as love at first sight because the two are made for each other. Your twin flame will open up aspects of your being and help you grow as a person; they will teach you new things and you, in turn, will teach them.
The relationship is intense and turbulent, so arguments may be frequent, but you compliment each other’s personalities and appreciate that they only have the best intentions for you. The most important part of this relationship is the learning experience that they will bring to your life and opportunities they bring which you never thought possible.
