Hello there....I've been kinda quiet here recently, just reading and watching, and I love the subject here so I would love to contribute, if I may.
For me personally, and from what I have studied, there seems to be a distinction between twin flames, and soulmates. The links above are pretty
accurate in interpreting the space between lives, and lots of research has been done to show that there are very consistent and organised patterns
with us all when we access them through regression therapy, or meditation.
I think what confuses a lot of people is that they expect their soulmate to be their one true love, and that there will be only one. We incarnate in
groups, from our soul families, with agreements between us regarding what we choos to learn and teach each other in our terrestrial lives together,
and in this way, maybe have several soulmates who are prominent in our lives. We may have many soulmates who show up for us.
I would like to add the term "prime soulmate" to this, to signify a soul who incarnates time and time again as a husband, wife or lover...the
soulmate we are closest to, and who we learn most of our major lessons from. We may even be each others children or parents where the life in question
demands this. There will always be a strong sense of recognition between prime soulmates, a sense of belonging together, even when the relationship is
demanding or painful...maybe that's just the lesson we have agreed to teach each other this time.
We also have other soulmates who are maybe less prominent, but who make a difference in our lives, and who we feel particuarly attached to. I know my
brother is one of mine. We are very close and intensely psychic, although I have developed this more than he has....he will in the future though, and
I think I had to learn first so that I can teach and support him. He has had some really tough issues to deal with, and there are probably more to
come for him. He will cope though. I've had regressions done where my partner has been my partner in previous lives too, strangely living in a place
very similar to where we are now. Sometimes people move in and out of our lives very quickly to huge effect, and maybe they are also soulmates
carrying major lesson for us.
Twin souls...this used to confuse me too, and it took a while for me to understand the difference. Imagine that as you incarnate, another soul, from
your group or another, share a piece of who they are, of their energy with you, allowing you to take it with you in your next incarnation. It doesn't
take anything away from them, but will lend you the abilities and qualities you need to learn....on loan if you like. I know I've had spontaneous
regression experiences that don't belong to me, but to the Twin Soul who imprinted me with some of her energy...I felt her experiences, if you like.
I knew they weren't mine, and I apologise for being completely unscientific about this....but if some brave soul could tell me how to measure this, I
will give it a go....it's completely subjective, but entirely true.
Another type of Twin Soul seems to be the kind that we have shared experiences with in the past. Again during regression, I accessed lives in the
Middle East spent as a priest and embalmer. Many lives, over and over again. A few years ago, I met a man called James where I worked, and instantly
we knew who the other was...he was intensely connected to Spirit, and within two minutes of meeting, we were talking about Babylonian
astrology...Babylon is where I spent many lives...and about ritual and priesthood. I knew he was my brother priest. Not a normal first conversation at
all. Sadly, we got to talk for a few minutes before his wife dragged him away, not realising that she had absolutely nothing to worry about from this
mouthy redhead who was examining the Babylonian zodiac tattoo on her handsome husband's shoulder....
Not a true shared soul this time, but close lives, shared experiences, and recognition of each other. I'm sure we will bump into each other some
other time. Probably in Tesco, with his wife in tow again!
These are just a few of my thoughts and experiences on this subject, and I would love to hear what others have to share.
