According to Chinese culture, there are two sets of opposing as well as complimenting cosmic forces called the yin and yang. Similar to this concept is that of the twin flames. When you meet this person you go through eight twin flame stages.
Twin flames meet in a lifetime to help each other and teach important lessons in their soul journey. These two souls will have unconditional love and will uplift each other.
What is A Twin Flame?
Twin flames come from the same source. One soul is said to split into two before coming to this world.
Twin Flames are said to come from a common origin. These souls were split into halves before the start of their journey to this world. This is why they are so identical that they mirror each other.
Depending on a soul’s maturity level their relationship will unfold. For instance, two old souls would have a harmonious relationship while two young souls might create pain to the other because they have lessons to learn.
Remember, the age of the souls has nothing to do with their physical age! It is the number of births a soul has taken before this present existence.
Jeff Divine and Shaleia Divine in their book, Twin Flames: Finding Your Ultimate Lover says that there is a person in this world who wants to fulfill all your desires. This person was created just for you, to complete you.

Twin Flame Symbol
The symbol of twin flame began with an image that contains an infinity symbol and a triangle containing a flame. The infinity symbol can also be said as an image of two circles that are intertwined. It could be thought of as a symbol where the circles formed the two halves of the eight.
The two internal circles symbolized the separate entities of masculine and feminine. Ascended Master Saint Germain explained that these circles symbolized the union between the divine masculine and the divine feminine.
It represents the energies uniting together, experiencing the moving energies within the inner eye of the heart. Germain began to clarify the significance of the triangle in the symbol.
The fire at the center of the triangle represents the strength of the relationship.

Twin Flame Stage #6 – The Run & Chase begins
In this stage of twin flame journey, one (sometimes both) of you want to separate the connection. You feel unloved or even hurt at this point.
It could be because one of you is emotionally or spiritually immature than the other. The more persistent one or the chaser will want to win the other (the runner) back.

25 Twin Flame Signs
Not all human souls that gel together could be your twin soul! There are many false twin flames as well. (We recommend you to do the Twin Flame Test below!) Again not all twin flames are romantic partners. But when they are, obviously the question comes if there will be a union between them.
Finding your twin flame is life-changing but then what? When you have met your twin flame how will you understand if you are going to unite with them? For it’s not a hard-and-fast rule that all twin flames will unite!
Here are 7 signs of a twin flame union.
1. You have started your journey to self-love
When twin flames are bound to unite it is observed that both of them have taken the path of self-love.
When both you and your twin flame have immersed in love and compassion towards self, you are ready at a soul level. Twin souls about to meet are not desperate to seek love from the other!
Because you are brimming with love, you give out love unconditionally. You feel complete on your own and vibrate on a higher energy level. From this level you just reciprocate each other.
2. You are committed to your soul purpose

8. Synchronicities start happening in your life
This is a strong sign that you have or about to have a Twin Flame relationship. You are getting puzzled by the flow of events that you cannot explain. It’s become a usual thing for you to see angel numbers like 1111, 2222, 4444, 8888 etc.
9. You empathize with people
Your soul starts evolving before entering a Twin Flame relationship. If you have become more compassionate towards others it’s a good sign. Before you find your twin flame you become an empathetic soul. It is said, your soul starts preparing itself before the twin flame union.
10. You focus on self development
It’s normal for you to focus on self growth if you are about to enter the twin flame stages. Your soul senses the union beforehand and it takes you through a process of self discovery and growth. The process could include deep self reflection, thirst for knowledge, updating yourself, and improving your personal and professional life.
11. A desire for romantic love
Maybe you have been looking for love for a long time but you were not sure what to expect in a relationship. Now, you are sure like never before. You realize that you deserve deep unconditional love. And you are fully ready to receive this love.

12. You are glowing from within
Friends are curious about what you are doing to have this instant glow on your skin. Your physical appearance improves naturally. Not only that but your entire persona is now more attractive. Your smile, the way you carry yourself, the way you talk, everything about you becomes enticing.
13. You had a difficult childhood
You and your twin flame both had some challenges when you were little. Most likely both of you were raised in polar opposite ways. When you meet you will be able to mend each other’s wounds.
14. One of you is more mature as a soul
In a Twinflame relationship one is an older soul with more wisdom and patience than the other. So, if you are more wise and calm you will serve as the counselor or confidant to your partner.
If you are a bit impatient and immature, do not worry, after he enters your life you’ll do much better.
15. You are fine tuned to your energy
Before uniting with your twin flame you will be fine tuned to your energy. This means you would become more self-aware. If your twin flame has entered or is about to enter your life, you would be energetically at your best level.
You would be pursuing your passion, and expressing yourself to the fullest potential.
16. You will start pursuing different hobbies
At this point, you will start pursuing different hobbies. Maybe you never had any interest in gardening but you start investing your time in nurturing the greens. This could be your twin’s passion that you suddenly start pursuing. Similarly, you could be tasting new foods because that’s what your twin loves to have.
17. You feel a strong physical pull to be physically intimate with someone
If your Twin Flame has entered your life you will want to be intimate with this person. And if you are not sure who this person is, you will still feel a strong urge to be physically intimate with this unknown person.
18. You will frequently have dreams at night about someone
Dreams are common in Twin Flame relationships. If you have a partner, you might find both of you are having the same dreams. Or you will receive a message from your Twin Flame in your dreams.
19. You will develop a strong intuition
If you are about to unite with your Twin your intuition would evolve. You would be able to understand so many things without even trying! Also, you could sense your Twin’s thoughts at this point. You can tell if they are worried or happy. Your twin would sense you too!
20. You will start moving out of your comfort zone
When you are prepared to take your twin flame journey you have already stepped out of your comfort zone. You are already doing things that you have never imagined to do before.
Maybe some of your friends are so shocked by your constant transformations they are talking about you at your back. But you don’t mind. You keep trying new things to challenge yourself and expand your experiences.
21. You would be having the same thoughts at the same time
Even if you have not met your flame, you will go through the same thought or emotions at the same moment. You might be surprised why a certain thought appeared in your mind. But it’s because your twin flame was thinking that too!
22. You feel it’s safe to be yourself
Now that you have to be comfortable with your Twin Flame, you will start becoming more at ease around people. You show up your authentic self. Even if you were shy, now you start shedding your cocoon.
23. You express your sexuality with confidence
Now that you are ready to receive romantic love, you are brimming with your sexuality. You start showcasing the masculine or feminine energy whichever is dominant in you. At this point, you won’t shy away from exhibiting your sensuality.
24. You attain a state of consciousness
Soulmate Twin Flame relationships happen when you are spiritually awakened. To attain this kind of a relationship the soul has to go through a journey. Your perfect match appears before you when you are in a deep connection with yourself, when you are in a higher vibration. At this stage, you feel complete and have attained a state of consciousness.
25. You are doing or interested in energy works
When you are ready for the twin soul connection you are either practicing some energy work or you are learning about it. You could be visiting an energy healer for Tarot, Reiki or consulting your zodiac sign. In some way, you have become deeply interested in these ancient practices.
Twin Flame Relationship
A twin flame appears when you least expect them. Although you can see some of the signs discussed in the previous section. But the romantic twin flame enters your life all of a sudden. Sometimes, you feel the instant spark. While it can be that you hate each other in the first interaction. This is because often the twin flames are polar opposites.
They might have to heal each other’s wounds and so they are a contrasting pair. If this is the case, the Twin Flame relationship starts with a clash. They take time to know each other and then feel attracted to one another. Not necessarily, a twin flame relationship would start with “love at first sight”.
On the other hand, the two polar opposites would try to repel each other and go out of their way. But destiny will pull them together and they will gradually evolve into a passionate couple who are inseparable.
Twin Flame Friendship
Not every twin flame relationship is about romantic love. Some twin flames are best friends. When your twin flame appears in your life as a friend, that relationship usually lasts forever. Twin flame lovers can part ways but twin flame friendships are long lasting. This kind of bonding can also be formed by siblings, or with a parent.
