Questions About Twin Flames And Soul Families?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Mariner2Mother. These questions were stimulated by our post: Do We Have To Unite With Our Twin Flame To Spiritually Ascend, Or With Our Multidimensional Self?

M2M: I’ve got a question, since you so clearly defined what a soulmate and a twin flame are in a previous post. During a healing session, spirit told me my abusive brother is my twin flame, and I could see we shared a soul. I already knew that as souls we have a great love for each other.

Council: We’d like to say at this point that your brother is not a twin flame. As we’ve explained in another post, the twin flame is you. It’s the mirror image you create for yourself in whatever reality you choose, but you and your brother have had many other lifetimes together. The feeling of camaraderie, problems, chaos, and happiness you experience with your brother, you’ve done many times before.

And so you choose to come back into your current reality with your brother this time. It’s a feeling of, “Let’s see what we create this time. We’ve been together and we’ve enjoyed it, and we’ve always learned. And so we’ll be together in our current life also.”

Bob: Apparently Mariner2Mother is under the impression from a healing session she had that her brother is her twin flame, which means that her brother has the same spirit as she has. And you’re saying that from your point of view you don’t see…

Council: He is another spirit that’s agreed to come, for all the reasons they wanted to come into their current lifetime, but it’s another soul. It’s not the twin mirror of herself.

M2M: Can you define what a soul family is for me?

Council: A soul family is many souls that come together, that work quite often in each other’s reality. But it’s also possible to jump from a group of souls that are different from the ones you’re used to working with. So you can jump from soul family to soul family if you need to learn something and these other souls are available and want to be part of it with you.

It’s wonderful that you have the ability to work with whoever you want, whatever spirit you want, in each lifetime. You have the ability to work with your familiar spirit energies. You have the ability to jump and work with spirits that you haven’t worked with before. You have the ability to become an animal if you wish. You have the ability to come into a reality as an extraterrestrial. You have the ability to go to other dimensions. It’s limitless what you can do. There are no rules.

M2M: I have a sense that a soul family is a group of souls meant to play out all sorts of scenarios together over several lifetimes.

Council: Yes, they do.

M2M: 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.

Council: And so you’ve worked with them before and you may feel that there’s a familiarity. There’s a reason that you may all be going through the same thing and are there coming together now to help each other through it. It’s support, and it’s learning, and it’s having fun.

Bob: Do you agree with Mariner2Mother that she’s had a lifetime where her current son was her mother and she was her son?

Council: Several times. There’s been a back-and-forth. They have been neighbors, cousins, teachers, and lovers. And so they share many, many lifetimes.

M2M: Would they be part of my soul family?

Bob: Meaning her son and these women whose stories resonate with her.

Council: We’d say, yes, because there are many, many lifetimes where you’ve come together.

M2M: 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?

Council: Yes, yes, and yes.

M2M: When might the members of our soul family change, as in entering or leaving the group?

Council: We teach that you are the creator of your life. So whether you create in one reality or another, or whether you create what goes on in spirit, you can always leave and you can come back, but there’s no separation. In spirit we’re all one. We’re all together. And so, in reality, when you understand about spirit, we’re all one large family.

Bob: Can you give us an analogy that explains the idea of soul families compared to the one large family of spirit?

Council: It’s a group of people. Some groups are very small and some are very large. It’s just a feeling of wanting to be together again and working well with each other in each reality, whether you’re both animals, or aliens, or humans. And so there’s a wanting to grow together because as one person in the family grows, everyone grows with them, even if what they experience are very different.

And so there’s a feeling that you bring in from the human reality that we like to be with these spirits, but that’s something you understand on a physical level and on a human level. But in spirit we don’t think, “Oh you come from that family, I come from this family.” We are all one. The perspective of how you look at it is totally different. In your reality now, it’s comforting to know that you have one family that goes around from life, to life, to life.

Bob: So it sounds like you’re saying that the idea of a soul family is more from a human perspective…

Council: Yes.

Bob: …whereas from a spiritual perspective it’s all one large family.

Council: But yet, we say there are many, many souls that just love coming together lifetime after lifetime no matter what you create. And so instead of it being spirit saying, “Let’s do it again, this is wonderful.” In the human reality one likes to think, “Oh, I’m with my family again,” when in reality all is one.

Bob: You mention larger and smaller soul families. Can you give us an idea of how many souls are in a large soul family?

Council: It’s limitless – as large as one would want to experience. Or you can have twenty people that you say, “Oh, for the next twenty lifetimes let’s just work together.” It’s the perspective. It’s what you want to do. But there’s love among every single soul and the connection is there, and you know that when you’re in spirit. You’re learning that when you’re in the physical.

What Are Soul Families and Do They Last Forever?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eden, who wants to know more about the concept of soul families. She asks, How many souls generally belong to one soul family, and does the soul family last for eternity or can a soul change to another soul family?

The Council says different soul families can have different amounts of souls. And souls can pop in and out of other soul groups to experience what these other souls want to experience. As souls we’re all connected, here to support each other and grow, and most of all to bring love into every situation. There’s jumping into another soul group to help a soul who’s planning something that another soul has gone through. And this soul volunteers to go into that soul’s group and that soul’s life and work with them on whatever experience they wish to have. You’re always with certain souls you enjoy incarnating with, but there’s also that moving around a little bit.

Eden asks the purpose of coming together with other souls to create a soul family? The Council says it’s to always be supportive of each other. There’s a blending of the vibration of these souls and the desire to learn from each other. It’s like in the physical world where certain people help you while you experience something and share joy with you. It’s the same in your soul family.

Eden asks if the purpose is simply to love and support one another and to grow together. The Council says of course it’s to grow together, support one another, love one another, and send supportive energy to souls from your home group to help them get through whatever they’re experiencing.

Eden asks, Do you generally incarnate with members of your soul family? The Council simply says, Yes.

Lastly Eden asks, Which people, if any, who are currently in my life are members of my soul family. The Council advises Eden to look at whatever experience, memory, or story you share with your father. He’s the most familiar soul from your soul group in your current lifetime. In the future of your current life, if it goes in the direction you originally planned in spirit, there are three new people that come into your life – two men and one woman. You’ll recognize them by taking a few breathes and looking into their eyes. When you get that “ah ha” feeling, this will confirm they are also from your soul group.

Astral Travel, and Communicating with Spirit for Others

This post answers questions from a reader named Dee, who asks The Council why her ability to astral travel began, and also if she’s meant to communicate with spirit for other people.

Dee begins by saying she started to notice her connection with spirit about 3 years ago. It began as small coincidences or synchronicities, evolved into dream visitations, feeling spirit around her, and eventually astral traveling, which began spontaneously.

The Council responds by saying every spirit in this reality (the Earth path) astral travels at night while they are asleep. Sometimes there’s a memory and sometimes there isn’t. Everyone is helping others, visiting others, seeing others who have passed on, learning to set up new lessons for themselves, and more. While the body rests the spirit is experiencing so much more.

Dee says she went through a period where she remembered astral traveling fairly regularly, meeting with her deceased mother and with her spirit guides. She’s also had dreams of people who feel familiar in the dream state but are unknown to her in her waking reality. The Council says in Dee’s waking reality she doesn’t know these people, but they are part of her soul family that she’s worked with in many other lifetimes.

Dee says in the last 6-8 months she hasn’t been recalling her astral travel like she did before. The Council says there’s less need right now to remember what’s being experienced in Dee’s astral travel, but this can easily come back.

Dee says she’s always wondered why (remembering) her astral travel started in the first place since it happened so abruptly. The Council said this projected her into understanding and opening up to so much more than she was open to before. Dee wanted to get into the spiritual realm with more understanding of who she is and what can be done at a quicker level.

Dee says she’s met with her spirit guides in dreams. The Council says many people meet with their guides and spirits that helped them plan their current lifetime. The Council adds that it’s possible to change things we wish to change in our current lifetime during these meetings. In other words, what we planned in spirit isn’t written in stone.

Dee asks if she’s meant to communicate with spirit for other people in addition to herself. The Council says for right now, learn as much as she can for herself and others will come to her with questions, and she can help them out by getting information for them.

The Council closes by saying Dee should go forward and explore, and know that caring for others and showing love and compassion will bring the people to her that need her experience and advice. Work on herself and what she’s experiencing and the rest will come.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Dee and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.
