Soul Mates & Twin Flames – What Is The Difference?

Published by:

a clouple sitting on a car with a starry sky behind themWhen I was a teenager, which I must admit was a long time ago, the word “soulmates” is now perceived in the way “twin flames” is now. It is not just me but my friends feel the same, so twin flames have grown as a modern-day slang term that has captured the imagination of the younger generation.

A soulmate is a phrase used nowadays for karmic relationships which are on a romantic level and was originally used as a phrase denoting a past life. They are a soul acquaintance which is connected with karma to fulfil with you. A twin flame, however, is classified as a mirror force that is complementary to you.

A meeting with a twin flame would at some time in your existence evoke a transformation which is spiritual. A soulmate encounter may or may not be the result of a spiritual transformation process.

Understanding Soul mates and Twin Flames

The best description of a twin flame is a feeling of home and comfortable environment. The realization of finding love and the peace and tranquillity this feeling brings throughout your whole being. There are a deep satisfaction and contentment in knowing the other person. A soulmate brings a completely different aspect which is a support for you in times of crisis but not a complete surrender of one’s inner feelings.

Even if you have not seen or talked to your twin flame for years, the bond and love between you is unbroken and will be reawakened when you make the next connection with that person. Sometimes you may have no conscious knowledge of your feelings but as soon as a connection is made the bond is refreshed and the relationship is renewed without any reference to the interruption.

If the same thing happens with a soulmate and there is a long period of no communication the feeling of love can easily drift away making it difficult or even impossible to rekindle any lost romantic emotions. A soulmate relationship is one of earthly fashion when communication is essential to keeping the bond of compatibility strong.

The definition between twin flames and soulmates lays in the higher purpose of discovery. The growth and evolution of one’s own consciousness related to the soulmate relationship and the assent ion of the entire planet together through a series of vibration connected to the consciousness of many in unison.

Soulmates

The overall purpose of a soulmate relationship is to evolve and expand to its maximum potential, which can be through relatives, lovers or friends. Soulmates are more like acquaintances that enter our lives as though pre-expected or in some way fated. A romance between soulmates can occur but does not have to.

Twin Flames

The coming together of twin flames is achieved on something like an energy level with the aim of providing consciousness throughout the planet. It could take twin flames many lifetimes to reach their goal, so it may be possible that you meet your twin flame but are unable to reach an agreement on achieving your mission.

Both men and women are equally likely to feel the draw of meeting a twin flame or a soul mate, even if they do not believe in the concept. However, women naturally (but not all) are more sensitive to emotional connections than men, so it is usually more likely that women will be aware of the connection first. However, there are some men who are naturally more sensitive than others and even more so in some circumstances than women. For example, a Scorpio man is known to be very much in touch with his emotions being a water sign. Scorpio’s lead with their emotions and always look for the deeper meaning in life. As they are naturally very sensitive beings they are likely to feel a soul mate or a twin flame very quickly.

Similarly, Virgo men are also quite likely to become aware of a possible soul mate or twin flame connection due to their heightened cerebral capabilities. Virgo men are deep thinkers with a strong intellect. Even though a Virgo may be sceptical of such concepts, he will never the less be aware of a deeper connection existing between himself and the other person. This could be due to a possible greater degree of neural pathways crossing the two hemispheres of the brain in a Virgo man, which could account for his higher intelligence.

As fascinating as this topic is for many, it is important not to get too hung up on it. Many times, a person will try to only look for their soul mate or twin flame in order to form a romantic connection. However, this is not necessary as we do not need to find our soul mate or twin flame in order to have a happy and harmonious relationship, as I outlined previously. In fact, a twin flame connection can often times (but not always) be a tempestuous one as there are several great life lessons to learn from the other person, which may or may not be a favorable experience.

When it comes to love, one of the best things to do is to follow your heart. From here, one may then consider looking deeper into the natal charts of both individuals for guidance and insight to help one navigate a happy and healthy relationship. If a person also happens to be a soul mate or twin flame then that may or may not be an advantage to the relationship. However, the two of you will certainly learn a few things about yourself along the way and you may even have a spiritual awakening as a result.

Mercury Retrograde: What It Is And How It Can Affect Your Life And Business

Published by:

planet mercuryThe Mercury retrograde refers to the periods of time when the planet Mercury passes Earth during its orbit around the Sun. It is a called retrograde because astrologers in ancient times noticed that Mercury seemed to move backward during the three or four times a year that it passes Earth.

Even though this is how it seems, in actual fact, Mercury doesn’t actually move backward, it’s only a trick of the eye.

When Mercury retrogrades, it stirs up turbulence in the Earth’s energy, much the way a speeding car may send up swirls of dust and debris in its wake. This disruption can send similar ripples of effects through our lives during this time.

Since Mercury influences communication, this ripple effect can cause problems with all forms of communication. This isn’t just limited to things like phone calls, mail, and the internet. It actually extends much further, to such things as reading, writing, speaking, and listening, shipping, transportation, and even travel. Mercury can also have an influence over agreements, documents, and contracts made between people. It is very important to pay attention to when Mercury is in retrograde when it comes to important business matters. When it comes to signing legal documents critical facts can easily be overlooked. In business transactions, it can also be likely that important phone calls are missed and communication that does get through can also be miss interpreted.

You may think this is all nonsense. If so, take a look at this article in the Huffington Post about things you absolutely should not be doing during the retrograde.

What does this mean for you?

So how can all this affect you? It means that during the weeks of the Mercury retrograde, you may end up experiencing a lot of difficulties and snafus in the communication-related areas of your life or business. Negotiations may go awry, sales may fall through, you may get a bad grade on term papers and tests, deliveries can go missing, your website may have coding problems, or even your flight could be delayed.

Reducing the risk

How can you minimize the effects of Mercury retrograde on your life? The best thing to do is to take care of big decisions, especially around communication-related issues. Wherever possible, try to have those really important business meetings or transactions well before the retrograde begins or table them until after it passes.

Don’t launch a new business or advertising campaign at these times. Instead, take a break from writing that book or beginning that new project, and plan any website maintenance or upgrades for after the retrograde period. You should also avoid entering into financial or business negotiations and contracts during this time, especially when it comes to legal documents. Moving house can also be problematic at this time, so try to make arrangements for after this hazardous time.

By taking care of any non-urgent communications needs outside of Mercury retrograde, you can avoid or minimize any complications that this planetary shift may cause. Don’t worry, it will soon pass and you will then be able to move on with your plans at full steam ahead and reap the rewards of success!
