Twin Flames and
Soul Mates

Have you ever dreamt of finding that perfect love? The one who could satisfy the intense longing you often feel for wholeness and fulfilment? Read on to find out how you can draw closer to your perfect love - your twin flame.

The Origins of Twin Flames

Aeons ago when God created your individual Spirit, he formed an ovoid of light like a whirling t’ai chi, which then divided into two spheres. From these spheres, two souls descended into form. You are one of these souls and your twin flame is the other. The two of you share the same "blueprint" that is not duplicated anywhere else in the universe.

Your twin flame is your true "other half " - your divine spouse that the soul yearns to find. You and your twin flame stood before God and vowed to bring to earth a portion of God’s creativity and energy from the Spiritual realms into the world for serving others and for a unique purpose - your divine mission. Having met your vow and mastered outer conditions, your destiny is to return to Spiritual realms and reunite with God.


The Separation of Twin Flames

Had we remained in constant harmony, we would have shared in the beauty of the relationship of cosmic lovers throughout our many incarnations on earth. But when we lost our harmony with each other and with God - through fear, disobedience to cosmic law, or through a sense of separation from our divine identity, we made negative karma (debts to life - the cumulative effects of our past good and bad deeds from this and previous lifetimes) which separated us from our twin flame and from God.

The story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is partly an allegory of this separation of twin flames. We thus found ourselves moving further and further apart from our twin flames and sometimes spending entire lifetimes without meeting. At other times we have assumed various relationships with each other: husband and wife; parent and child; brother and sister and teacher and disciple, in order to balance the karma we have made with each other as twin flames and the karma of separation from God through our own free will.

Almost all of the major operas depict the great age-old drama between twin flames - of their separation through betrayal (Puccinni’s Madame Butterfly), or of how one twin flame passes their tests in life while the other does not succeed (Aida by Verdi). Beethoven’s Fidelio depicts the victory of both twin flames together, whilst in Lohengrin by Wagner, Lohengrin is in the position of teacher and Elsa his disciple.

The Union of Twin Flames

Often, when people learn that they share a unique mission with their twin flame, they begin to search for that one special soul instead of seeking their wholeness within. This is a detour on the path back to God. Your twin flame may have already walked the spiritual path and reunited with God, or they may still be struggling to find their way. Wherever your twin flame is - whatever their state of consciousness is - can greatly influence your own ability to find wholeness - and vice versa.

Seeking wholeness in God is the best way you can help yourself and your own twin flame. As you do this, you can give spiritual support to your twin flame through prayers, meditation and mantras. We must first find wholeness in God before we can unite with and fully unlock the spiritual potential of our twin flame, because until we achieve a certain level of oneness with our Higher Selves, we are unable to cope with the negative karma we have with our twin flame brought about by being in the presence of our divine spouse.

A Prayer for Twin Flames

We can accelerate our progress on the spiritual path if we daily ask our Higher Self, or God Self (the I AM Presence) to establish a spiritual contact at inner levels with our own twin flame:

"In the name of the Christ, I call to the blessed God Presence of each of our twin flames for the sealing of our hearts as one for the victory of our mission to humanity. I invoke the light of the Holy Spirit for the consuming of all negative karma limiting the full expression of our divine identity and the fulfilment of our divine plan."

In this way, even if you live worlds apart, you can unite spiritually on higher planes and help balance your mutual karma. This inner contact intensifies the light we each have and releases the power of our love, enabling us to stand strong in the face of the tests of life, balance our mutual karma and fulfil our divine plan.

Soul Mates

Not all of the beautiful and soul-fulfilling loves are those of twin flames. There is also the love of close, kindred souls called soul mates. Soul mates are different from twin flames in that they were not created from the same ovoid of light and therefore each has their own twin flame. The soul mate relationship is a great blessing when for some reason we cannot reunite with our twin flame in this embodiment.

For instance, our twin flame might not be in embodiment at this time, or may not be following a spiritual path, or conversely, may already be an Ascended Master working in the spiritual realms to inspire us upward. An ascended twin flame might even send a soul mate to us as a representative of him/herself. Soul mates are drawn together because they are simultaneously working on the same type of karma, sacred labour and the same chakra (spiritual centres within the body).

Soul mates can be in the husband/ wife, sibling, co-worker or other relationship and they can be of the same or different sex. A soul mate is like the echo of oneself working at the same task to fulfil a service to God.

Karmic Relationships

Karmic relationships involve two individuals who are drawn together for the balancing of mutual karmic debts. These relationships are often difficult but they are important to making progress on the spiritual path. If married, the couple can make good karma for bringing forth and nurturing children.

Some of these marriages may provide opportunity for balancing serious karmas like murder, betrayal or extreme hatred from a previous lifetime. Very often the only way we can balance these serious karmas is by the love expressed through the husband and wife relationship. Note that these relationships can often begin with the most intense love or desire, which early on can be mistaken for the twin flame relationship.


Whether it be the union of twin flames, soul mates or karmic partners, the marriage of man and woman is meant to be an initiation on the path back to God, a commemoration of the soul’s reunion with God. It is our choice as to whether our relationships are based on the human or the divine. The union of twin flames is intended to be for the magnification of their service to God and humanity - it is a high and holy calling. To meet your twin flame while you still have karma may simply lead to another parting, without the knowledge of spiritual laws on how to balance this karma and the dedication to apply these laws.

The Violet Flame

One of the keys to changing past karma and fulfilling your divine mission with your twin flame is the violet flame - a unique spiritual energy that has the power to literally erase the negative karma that keeps you from your twin flame and God. While you can’t go back in time, the violet flame transmutes the cause, the effect, and even the memory of our past mistakes, and the resultant negative karma.

Calling forth the violet flame daily is one of the quickest and most effective means for accelerating spiritual growth in preparation for our ultimate reunion with God and our twin flame. The only true and lasting union of twin flames is for each of you first, together or separately, to achieve union with God. Then you, your twin flame and God are united and inseparable forevermore.
