Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Do We Have To Unite With Our Twin Flame To Spiritually Ascend, Or With Our Multidimensional Self?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Bluestar Child.

Bluestar Child: In general, is it necessary to unite with your twin flame to spiritually ascend from the third dimension here on Earth, or is it an attachment of the ego that we need to let go of and actually have to unite with our own multi-dimensional selves?

Council: Exactly, let go of the ego. You don’t need anything or anyone else to move up the ladder and go from one dimension to another, which you’ve already done.

And so it’s the beliefs that you must have a twin soul, you have to have a soulmate. No. You need to create what you want with your thoughts. You need, in your prayers, in your meditations, to always want to connect with that higher part of you that knows what it wants to do, that knows what you wanted to experience in this lifetime. That’s all that’s needed. No one else is needed.

BS: Is there a true twin flame?

Council: When you create a twin flame, you take a part of your spirit and send it out there and create the kind of person you want this twin flame to be in your life. So it’s you (as a spirit) taking on the persona of another person: a man, a woman, an animal, whatever it is. But it is you, and you can create this as many times as you want and in as many realities as you want. The twin flame is you.

It’s like you looking in a mirror and saying, “Let me put on this Halloween costume and let me see what I find with this person that I’m creating. What is it about me that I want to learn? Why do I want to create this twin flame so I can feel comfortable? Why do I want to create this twin flame so that I can have a lot in common, so that I can grow at a pace that feels comfortable, that I’m supported by someone (and that someone is you) to go through this reality and [go through] what I want to experience.”

Bob: Do you differentiate between the terms twin flame and soulmate?

Council: The soulmate is someone that you create because you think this soulmate will be the great love of your life. And it’s another spirit that’s agreed to come into your life and play that part.

But when you create this twin flame, it’s the mirror of you. And so there’s not another spirit that’s involved in that.

Bob: So on the subject of twin flames, if it’s another person, how is there not another spirit involved in that?

Council: A twin flame is you. It’s a part of you that you’ve sent out to come in the form of a person, or an animal, or whatever it is that you need.

A soulmate is another soul that perhaps you’ve been in other lifetimes with, or it can be someone new, but it’s a different soul, a different spirit that said, “Yes, I will come in and be whatever we decide we need to be in this lifetime.”

The twin flame is you creating with you.

Bob: I think I understand. It sounds like you’re saying that in spirit you send a part of yourself and create another person, but it’s your actual spirit in the form of another person.

Council: Exactly.

Bob: And you’re calling them a twin flame.

Council: Yes.

Bob: It doesn’t involve the spirit or soul of another.

Council: Excellent, Bob. Yes, you’ve got it.

Bob: But the soulmate…

Council: …is another spirit.

Bob: Thank you very much for that clarification. I appreciate that.

Council: Good question.

Bob: Now we have a point of clarification that we’d like to ask about in our post where we answered Bluestar Child’s first four out of five questions. It was a post entitled, Do I Have A Twin Flame, Not A Soulmate?

Early in that post Bluestar Child said, “I would like to ask The Council if I have a twin flame, and I don’t mean a soulmate.” And you said, You’re going to try to answer them. This can be difficult to understand.” And we appreciate that you just provided some of that clarification.

Council: Yes, we’ve just given you the simplest explanation.

Bob: Now in that previous post, just after that statement, you said, “We were all created at the same time. There are no new souls.” And then you said, “There are souls that are new by creating your current reality.” And we’d like some clarification on those three statements.

Council: There are no new souls, but we’ll say there are millions, or a nice word that Cynthia likes, cazillions of souls everywhere, in every reality, in every dimension. And so there’s not a new soul being born. What happens is, in your reality when you bring a person in, it’s someone that’s agreeing to be here. It’s not a brand new soul. When you give birth, it’s not a brand new soul. The soul could be thousands of years old. We are all here. We are all doing many, many, many things.

So there’s no need to create a new soul. When you feel you want to create something, there’s nothing brand new. You’ll send out a part of yourself for whatever reason so that to your human mind it seems like a new soul, but it isn’t. There’s no need for anything new. We’re all here forever.

Bob: That’s interesting. So it sounds like you’re saying that on a spiritual level, all souls were created at the same time.

Council: Always was, always will be. And there are no words in your language to explain this. It’s just that we’re vibration and we are energy that goes on forever. There is a change in form perhaps, but we are always there.

Bob: And the change in form doesn’t involve any new souls?

Council: Exactly. And believe this or not, we all know each other, all cazillion trillion millions. We’re all connected. How wonderful is that? That will blow your mind.

Bob: So when you say there are souls that are new by creating your current reality, you’re saying that an old soul can seem new by bringing them into our current reality and experiencing them for the first time.

Council: Exactly. It could be a soul that you’ve never been with before so they would feel new.

Bob: But this soul and all souls were originally created all at the same time.

Council: Exactly.

  2. Hi, Susan. We’ll be happy to ask The Council your questions about soul families when we have time and we’ll post an audio recording of their response as soon as it’s ready. In the meantime, you might want to have another look at our post, What Are Soul Families, And Do They Last Forever? We believe some of your questions are answered in that post. Thanks for your question. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  3. Bob, Cynthia, and The Council, I’ve got a question since you so clearly defined what a soulmate and a twin flame are. During my healing session when spirit told me my abusive brother is my twin flame (I already knew that as souls we have great love for each other), I could see that we shared a soul. Could you define soul family for me? I have a sense it’s a group of souls that tend to play out all sorts of scenarios together over several lifetimes. For instance, I’ve been told that my son and I have had a lifetime together when he was my mother and I was his son. Once I stepped onto my healing path, I met a few women whose stories resonate with mine quite a bit and they feel like kindred spirits – would they be part of my soul family? Do we incarnate with one primary soul family for possibly hundreds or thousands of incarnations that might include being human, animal, or even some sort of star being? When might the members of our soul family change (enter or leave the group)? Thank you very much.

  4. Thank you for this clarification of the difference between a soulmate and twin flame. This past summer, during a few healing sessions I reached a level of healing from an abusive relationship so deeply that the knowledge my abuser was my twin flame came through. I saw that we essentially share a soul at what looked like a higher level. My higher self let me know that one of the biggest challenges a person can take on is learning to love themselves when they perceive part of themself as a separate person who’s done heinous and despicable acts to them. I was told they are my twin flame. And the healing was years in the making. I never realized a twin flame always shares a soul, but a soulmate doesn’t.
