What will you ask Spirit?

Twin Flames, Twin Souls, and Soulmates – What’s the Difference?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Kimberly, who asks when was the last time she incarnated with her twin flame.

The Council says a twin soul, which is another name for twin flame, is part of your higher self and not an aspect of another spirit. The twin flame incarnates as a part of your higher self to shake up your life. It’s not usually a partner, but someone that jumps in and out of your life and forces you to grow. It’s sort of a mirror that shows you your beliefs and helps when you’re stuck.

Sometimes your relationship with your twin soul is a rough one and you don’t get along. Other times your twin soul will be very supportive. The twin soul always comes to help you get unstuck. Many people think the twin soul is a romantic relationship, but this isn’t its purpose.

A soulmate is someone you’ve worked with over many lifetimes and there’s a spiritual agreement to have a very close relationship in your current lifetime. Whether it’s a marriage or a close relationship, a soulmate comes from a different spirit than your own and has agreed to come in and help you. The twin soul or twin flame is someone that you’ve created from a part of your own higher self.

The Council says they feel Kimberly is asking about a soulmate even though she uses the words, twin flame. But they feel it’s necessary for her to hear an explanation for the twin flame because she needs to look at her life and see that she’s brought one in. Is it a close relationship? Is it someone who pushes her buttons? Is it a teacher who helps her go in another direction?

The twin flame appears as a separate person who comes in and out of your life or is in your life for a short period of time, but is really an aspect of your higher self that’s here to help you move on. The Council believes Kimberly’s original question is asking about a romantic soulmate from two lifetimes ago, as opposed to a twin flame, but they feel it’s important for her to explore her current lifetime, look for her twin flame, and ask herself what she is trying to teach herself.

Kimberly asks if anything tragic happened with her twin flame in this previous life and The Council is clear in their answer that they’re talking about a soulmate in a previous life, not a twin flame. They see a life in England during the 1600s. Kimberly was the husband in that lifetime, he had two children, worked as a traveling cloth tradesman, and the tragedy was that although he had a loving family, he abandoned them for an opportunity to sail to different ports and trade his goods.

The Council says in Kimberly’s current lifetime there may be a focus on healing the abandonment from the previous lifetime and learning how the female partner in that lifetime felt. She may be searching for the perfect partner in her current lifetime, but has difficulty finding it because of the abandonment in the previous lifetime. She can heal this by being gentle in her current lifetime, considerate, and having a permanent relationship where she no longer wants to run away.

Bob asks if there’s a relationship in Kimberly’s current lifetime with the wife or children from the previous lifetime. The Council says there was an agreement with one of the children to be the partner Kimberly’s looking for so healing can take place, but this hasn’t happened yet.

The Council says before Kimberly goes looking for her partner she should concentrate on the twin flame who’s in her life to shake it up, teach her to open her heart and mind, and look at things differently. Once this happens then she can concentrate on what she’d bring to the relationship she desires. Then she can look for the joy wherever she can find it because there was a lot of hardship in the past life.

Kimberly asks if her twin flame (which The Council believes she means her soulmate) will be there when she crosses over. The Council says the souls you need to see at the time you cross over will be there for you and you’ll recognize them.

Kimberly closes by asking if her twin flame (read soulmate) has any messages for her. The Council says their message is to stay in the vibration of love, show it to yourself first, be kind to yourself, and explore who you are. There’s so much more you can find out about who you truly are and what you’re able to do in this lifetime. Pay attention to your dreams and watch them unfold.

Love, Creation, and Spiritual Pre-Planning

Sarah’s Questions

This post answers several questions from a reader named Sarah who’s 23 years old and relatively new to thinking about her spirituality. She begins her questions by asking The Council for some general clarity on the nature of things and her path to intimate love.

Sarah explains how her deeper appreciation for self-love and love in general has caused her to question the meaning of twin flames and soul mates, and whether she can create them in her life.  And she describes a very close male friend who seems meant to be something important to her, but she doesn’t feel that drawn to him as a boyfriend.

Sarah asks if this young man is her twin flame or soul mate because she wants to know if she should try and create these in her life, or sit back because he’s the one. She asks how much of her situation is pre-determined spiritually and how much she controls as a human being?

The Council’s Answers

The Council starts by commenting it’s wonderful Sarah understands the importance of loving and appreciating herself rather than projecting her love onto someone else so she can feel it.

The Council addresses the question of twin flames, sometimes referred to as twin souls. After a little background which you can hear in the recording below, The Council  asks if we realize we’re all the same soul, all connected, and part of the One. And they ask if that doesn’t make us all twin souls?

The Council says many people are looking for their soul mate because they believe it will be the perfect relationship, but they don’t seem to agree. They say soul mates don’t just come along in a love relationship or partnership. They can be cousins, friends, acquaintances, and they usually push you to grow and force you to a higher level of understanding, whether it’s through positive experiences or negative ones.

In response to Sarah’s question about whether she’s able to create a twin flame or soul mates in her life, The Council says she can create either or both. The Council is firm that you as a spiritual being are in charge of your life experience.

There’s some interesting discussion about the ways your spirit pre-plans what happens in your physical reality.

With regard to Sarah’s male friend, The Council advises appreciating the connection they share, and know she doesn’t have to feel drawn to him romantically. He’s in her life for whatever experiences, fun, and challenges they go through together. But as far as a love relationship is concerned, she is able to create something else if she wants.

In response to her question about whether he is a twin flame or soul mate, The Council says because they’ve shared many lifetimes together, yes he can be a twin soul and yes he can be a soul mate. But they add that we are all those things to each other.

Listen to the entire 19-minute session below for details of The Council’s answer to Sarah’s question.
