Soulmates or Twin Flames?
Soulmates and Twin Flames have to do with how you relate to a particular relationship. We believe that you do not necessarily have to have a romantic connection with someone in order for them to be one of your soulmates or your twin flame.
Throughout your lifetime, you may have many soulmates. They can be best friends or they can be a romantic partner. A soulmate connection is a relationship where you feel completely at ease and comfortable. Soulmates can be very similar to you in energy, humor, love, friendship and personal growth. You can have many soulmates and they may come into and leave your life teaching a lesson or making a lasting impact.
You Twin Flame is your closest soul connection. It is believed that when your energies were created, they were part of the same fire. Hence, calling this connection, your Twin Flame. It is a sacred and spiritual sense of oneness type of relationship. You have run into this energy in several past lives. When you find your Twin Flame, you have probably already had several soulmates. It is believed that we only have one Twin Flame and they are identical in energy. Your Twin Flame may or may not incarnate at the same time as you.
The main difference is whether or not the relationship is with your soulmate (your energy compliment) or your Twin Flame (you energy twin). Both will teach you spiritual lessons if you pay attention.
