Each of us has one twin flame or twin ray. Our twin flame, twin ray, or twin soul is the one with which we were spiritually created. A twin flame is not the same as a soul mate. A soul mate is similar to a “spiritual classmate,” and it is possible to have many soul mates. Often a soul mate is one we will work with to accomplish a specific mission, project, or goal; and, in some cases, raise a family.
The following are some excellent teachings on twin flames and soul mates:
Had we remained in constant harmony, we would have shared in the beauty of the relationship of cosmic lovers throughout our many incarnations on earth. But when we lost our harmony with each other and with God.
This may have occurred due to fear, disobedience to cosmic law, or through a sense of separation from our divine identity. Whatever the reason, we made negative karma (debts to life – the cumulative effects of past evil deeds). Our karma separated us from our twin flame and from God.
The story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is partly an allegory of this separation of twin flames.
We found ourselves moving further and further apart from our twin flames and sometimes spending entire lifetimes without meeting.
At other times we have assumed various relationships with each other: husband and wife; parent and child; brother and sister; teacher and disciple.
These varying relationships assisted us to balance the karma we have made with each other as twin flames and the karma of separation from God through our own free will.
Many of the major operas depict the great age-old drama between twin flames – of their separation through betrayal. An example would be Puccini’s Madame Butterfly.
Another instance of how one twin flame passes their tests in life while the other does not succeed is portrayed in Aida by Verdi.
The victory of both twin flames is depicted in Beethoven’s Fidelio together, while in Lohengrin by Wagner, Lohengrin is in the position of teacher and Elsa is his disciple.
Your twin flame may have already walked the spiritual path and reunited with God, or may still be struggling to find their way. Wherever your twin flame is – whatever their state of consciousness is – can significantly influence your ability to find wholeness – and vice versa.
Seeking wholeness in God is the best way you can help yourself and your twin flame. To fully unlock the spiritual potential of your twin flame, you must achieve a certain level of oneness with your Higher Self.
You can give spiritual support to your twin flame through prayers, meditation, and mantras.
We can accelerate our progress on the spiritual path if we daily ask our Higher Self, or God Self (the Christ Self), to establish a spiritual contact at inner levels with our twin flame.
In this way, even if you live worlds apart, you can unite spiritually on higher planes and help balance your mutual karma.
This inner contact intensifies the light we each have and releases the power of our love, enabling us to stand strong in the face of the tests of life, balance our mutual karma and fulfill our divine plan.
To balance the karma with your twin flame, you can give violet flame mantras. Violet flame is a spiritual flame of light that transmutes the karma that keeps us separated from our twin flame. Learn more about the violet flame. See below.
“In the name of the Christ, I call to the blessed God Presence of each of our twin flames for the sealing of our hearts as one for the victory of our mission to humanity. I invoke the light of the Holy Spirit for the consuming of all negative karma, limiting the full expression of our divine identity and the fulfillment of our divine plan.”
Not all of the beautiful and soul-fulfilling loves are those of twin flames. There is also the love of close and kindred souls called soul mates.
Soul mates are different from twin flames in that they were not created from the same ovoid of light, and therefore each has his or her own twin flame.
The soul mate relationship is a great blessing when, for some reason, we cannot reunite with our twin flame in an embodiment.
For instance, our twin flame might not be in embodiment at this time or may not be following a spiritual path. Conversely, the twin flame may already be an Ascended Master working in spiritual realms to inspire us upward. An ascended twin flame might even send a soul mate to us as a representative of him or herself.
Soul mates may be drawn together because they are simultaneously working on the same type of karma, or sacred labor, or the same chakra (spiritual centers within the body).
Soul mates can be in the husband or wife, sibling, co-worker, or other relationship. They can be of the same or a different sex. A soul mate is like the echo of oneself working at the same task to fulfill a service for God.
Karmic relationships involve two individuals who are drawn together for the balancing of mutual karmic debts. These relationships are often difficult, but they are essential to making progress on the spiritual path.
If married, the couple can make good karma by bringing forth and nurturing children. Some of these marriages may provide an opportunity for balancing serious karmas like murder, betrayal, or extreme hatred from a previous lifetime.
Very often, the only way we can balance these serious karmas is by the love expressed through the husband and wife relationship. Note that these relationships can often begin with the most intense love or desire, which early on can be mistaken for the twin flame relationship.
Whether it be the union of twin flames, soul mates, or karmic partners, the marriage of man and woman is meant to be an initiation on the path back to God – a commemoration of the soul’s reunion with God. It is our choice as to whether our relationships are based on the human or the divine.
The intent of the union of twin flames is for the magnification of service to God and humanity – it is a high and holy calling.
To meet your twin flame while you still have karma may lead to another parting, due to the lack of knowledge about spiritual laws, knowledge of how to balance this karma, and how to apply these laws.
One of the keys to changing past karma and fulfilling your divine mission with your twin flame is the violet flame – a unique spiritual energy that has the power to literally erase the negative karma that keeps you from your twin flame and God.
The violet flame transmutes the cause, the effect, and even the memory of our past mistakes and the resultant negative karma.
Calling forth the violet flame daily is one of the quickest and most effective means for accelerating spiritual growth in preparation for our ultimate reunion with God and our twin flame.
The only real and lasting union of twin flames is for each of them to achieve union with God. Then you, your twin flame, and God are united and inseparable forevermore.
