5 Important Takeaways From The Twin Flame Journey
No matter what you call it – twin flames, twin souls, divine love, unconditional love – this experience contains many gems that we can apply to all relationships in life. Here, I will share a few that I have gleaned as I have been on this journey since 2012.

Being together is not always being together physically.
Several times, I have had the experience of a friend telling me, “I couldn’t get you out of my head yesterday,” only to find that I experienced the same phenomenon with them. It has happened enough now for me to no longer view it as mere coincidence. I see my twin rarely physically, but he is often in the background of my thoughts, even when I am not consciously trying to imagine him there. He shows up in my dreams, even when I go for long periods of time without seeing or speaking to him. Sometimes, my dreams about him will relay a feeling or truth that I am unable to dismiss. The feelings have been mixed, but there are times that the love has felt undeniable. When you think of someone often, inexplicably, and you feel an intense energy for and around them, trust that there is a point and purpose to it, even if you do not see one another very much. Perhaps the conversations between you will not always seem profound or loving, but energy does not lie.
Being together physically is not always love.
Time, attention, and sex do not equal love. With sexual harassment being the spotlight of today’s news, it is easy to see how this can be true. Humans have a limited period to spend on Earth and we cannot be multiple places at once, so sometimes we experience restrictions when it comes to our loved ones that we would most enjoy seeing. We give our time and attention to things that we do not love, every day. Precious little of it seems to go toward feelings of joy, love, or contentment. It does not come naturally, to look toward love, unless perhaps we are babies and have not been conditioned to do otherwise yet. I feel that now humanity is turning toward love more than ever before, but we still have a distance to cross. If you feel that your twin flame experience is not “enough,” look at what you think of as true love and examine it. Be willing to expand your ideas; be willing to be curious, to be wrong.
Your journey is not to be compared to anyone else’s.
How boring would we be if we all had the same stories? If this path were straightforward and uniform, how would we learn anything new? Be wary of teachers that state you are doing something wrong if you are not in physical union with your beloved. I have met many wise, loving, and successful souls, that I would describe as enlightened or operating at a high level of consciousness, who are in no romantic relationship. In fact, I have met more who are not than are in relationships. Maybe you are not experiencing the same signs and symptoms as another or what is popular on the Internet, but that does not mean your experience is less meaningful or not real. This journey is about deciding for yourself what you believe and holding steady in faith. If it were easy, if there were undeniable proof that this is your experience, faith would not be necessary.
Codependence can block true love.
Codependence, in this experience, is a need for the other to feel a certain way about you before you can feel that way about yourself. If you are withholding anything from yourself because you want your twin or another person to validate it first, this is not truly love. If you need your twin flame in your life to have a good life, this is not truly love. You may feel that you hold pure intentions, but any action you take out of fear of losing the other will carry that vibration of fear, and the other will be able to sense it. This is why, many times, our twins run or we experience discordance in our interactions. It is important to understand what codependence is and become conscious of our fears and how they manifest in our words and actions. With consciousness, we hold the key to create our future and better versions of ourselves. With codependence, we give all that power away; we subconsciously block possibilities of true love.
Union must occur within.
We all have feminine and masculine energy to unite inside ourselves. One way this union can occur is when we act upon our creative ideas. Another way to be in union is to align your beliefs, thoughts, and feelings with your words and actions. I think of this as the true meaning of authenticity. If you cannot accept yourself, another cannot accept you. It is the same with love. When we fight against who we are, we will believe everyone else is too, even when they aren’t. It is possible to be in a physical relationship without first being united within oneself, but it is bound to make the relationship fraught with triggers and pain. Love is quite simple, but many times, we overcomplicate it. I hope this article has helped you get to the truth of undiluted love and find acceptance in what is. Namaste.
