The mystical teachings say that each individual soul
is a fragment of God; something like a miniaturized version of our Source.
God has a dual nature or essence, which is an equal blend of the
masculine-feminine, ying-yang principle. The dynamic interplay that occurs
between the male-female energy of Father/Mother God is responsible for the incredible, creative
forces that originate within their divine mind. Since everything that exists
comes from Them, the male-female essence is found in all things, including
Not surprisingly, our individual souls contain an equal
blend of Father/Mother's masculine and feminine essence. That blend can be likened to a magnet, which has two
polarities. One is positive, the other negative. But the magnet is whole within itself. At the soul
level we are neither female nor male. We are both. Just as God is.
In order to understand how the soul mate and twin soul
concept fits into all of this, we need to go back to the beginning.
Before our souls and the universe came into being, all was ONE within the realm of the
Absolute or the mind of God. Nothing else existed. There was no division, no separation, no
opposites, no conflicts and no contrasts. Just the purest
unity, bliss, joy and love imaginable. In that state of being, God could
only know things, but not feel and experience them. In
order to experience and feel, there had to be an opposite for everything that
To remedy that dilemma, God created our souls and a place where
there could be countless experiences and feelings. That place is the
physical universe in which we now find ourselves,
complete with galaxies, stars, planets, intelligent life, feelings, emotions
and so on. As
souls, we agreed to leave the Absolute for a while to experience and feel
its offerings and God would do the same through us. Another way to say this is that
when we smell a rose, Gods smells a rose. Our connection with our Source
is that intimate.
In a flash of Gods magnificent mind and imagination, the
material universe in
which we live was created. All of it is a place of exquisite duality. For
everything that exists, including our emotions, there is an opposite for it. For heat
there is cold, for darkness there is light, for health there is sickness, for anger there
is forgiveness, for hatred there is compassion, for love there is fear, and so on. Without
these opposites how could we and God appreciate the wonder of joy unless there was
sadness to compare it to?
God also brought into being the greatest opposite of all.
It was the feminine and masculine energy or the
male-female principle, which is a truly awesome gift.
As we awaken spiritually, we are becoming more and more aware of the
male/female energies and
the profound implications they will have during our relationship with another.
When we begin to understand and appreciate the origin of our
souls and how this led to the soul mate and twin soul concepts, we will want no other kind of partnership.
That is why the New Age of Aquarius, which will be a time of love, peace,
harmony, will also set the stage for grander soul-to-soul couplings. It promises
to be incredible. And it's already beginning to happen.
When our souls were released from the Absolute into the universe to
experience and to feel, a series of divisions or separations took place. The
SOUL fragmented into massive bodies of souls (oversouls). They in turn divided into races
or groups of souls. The human race is one of those them.
continued until it reached a point
where small, intimate families of souls came into being. Eventually, individual souls existed.
That is where we find ourselves now. As we return to
God during our cosmic adventure, this process will be reversed.
Brian Weiss, M.D., in one of his many books, Only Love is
Real, uses a very good analogy to understand how we
relate to one another at the soul level and to the God who created us. He says...
"I like to
think of soul relationships as similar to a large tree with a thousand
leaves on it. Those leaves that are on your twig are intimately close to
you. You may even share experiences, soul experiences, among yourselves.
There may be three or four or five leaves on your twig. You are also highly
and closely related to the leaves on the branch next to yours. They share a
common limb. They are close to you, but not as close as the leaves on your
own twig. Similarly, as you extend father out along the tree, you are still
related to these other leaves or souls, but not as closely as those in your
immediate proximity. You are all part of one tree and one trunk. You can
share experiences. You know each other. But those on your twig are the
There are many
other trees in this beautiful forest. Each tree is connected to the others
through the root system in the ground. So even though there may be a leaf on
a distant tree that seems quite different from you and very far away, you
are still connected to that leaf. You are connected to all leaves. But you
are the most closely connected to those on your tree. And even more
intimately connected to those on your branch. And almost as one with those
on your own twig.
You probably have
met other souls farther out on your tree in previous lifetimes. They may
have been in many different relationships with you. Their interactions may
have been extremely brief. Even a thirty-minute encounter could have helped
you learn a lesson or help them or both of you, as is usually the case. One
of these souls may have been the beggar in the road to whom you gave a
heart's gift, allowing you to extend your compassion to another human being
and allowing the recipient to learn about receiving love and help. You and
the beggar may have never met again in that lifetime, and yet you are part
of the drama. Your meetings vary in duration - five minutes, one hour, a
day, a month, a decade or more - this is how souls relate. Relationships are
not measured in time but in lessons learned."
This is a remarkable description of how we are all linked
together as one. In addition, individuals from the same tree are soul mates,
while "half" souls within the same leaf are twins.
The forest contains countless
trees and leaves (souls) that are joined together as a gigantic, cosmic
oneness throughout the universe. And that entire oneness is God.
Your soul, and all the
other countless souls that were ever created, are constantly trying to return
to their Source to help recreate the ONE SOUL that existed in the very
beginning. That yearning for oneness is in each and every one of
us and that hunger can never be destroyed. That is the underlying basis for the cosmic
principle behind our existence. And this incredible adventure goes way beyond the
single lifetime we are now experiencing on planet Earth.
What we are also beginning to discover as we awaken
spiritually is that the yearning we have for oneness with our Source is the driving force behind our
falling in love. The experience and feelings that come from the completeness
of body, mind and spirit between
two spiritual partners reminds us of our desire to be one and whole with
God. The New Age of Aquarius is gradually bringing out that
realization in us.
During each of our lifetimes, individuals from your close knit family of souls,
your soul mates, will more than likely be your parents, sisters, brothers, children, aunts,
uncles, cousins, best friends, and even your lovers. Some members of this
intimate group are in Earth heaven at this moment in time. Most of these souls share the same branch of leaves that you
are on. Those you feel closer to are nearest to the twig on your branch or
may be on the same twig with you.
You and your soul mates have been together since the
beginning of creation. You've had many intimate relationships and experiences with
them for a long, long time. And it will continue on like that throughout eternity.
Members of this family are helping
each other awaken to their true spiritual nature. And all of you are assisting
one another's spiritual growth and evolution. In the process, we find
out who we really are, as each member of the family plays a very important role
during our cosmic journey together. How wonderful it is to know that God's
perfect plan of love will keep us bonded throughout eternity to our soul
mentioned above, your soul is a part of God. As such, it is incredibly
powerful. It can send pieces or fragments of itself into the different
realms and dimensions that God has created for us. One of those realities is the 3-dimensional world of planet Earth, in which
you now find
yourself. You are a projection of your soul and, as that fragment, you are
occupying your body for a very important reason. As you read these words, a part of your soul,
and God, is experiencing and feeling the material
world through you.
it really gets interesting. If is chooses to do so, your soul can send more than
one fragment of itself to occupy different physical bodies on planet Earth
at the same time. What that means is that you can literally meet someone
on this planet who is a part of your soul. These individuals are not soul
mates nor are they your twin.
They're called parallel souls or near twins. Should two of you meet, there will be a
spontaneous and very powerful recognition and exchange of energy that
In order to
understand the twin soul concept, one has to look at what your soul
is composed of. It's not a lump of undefined energy nor is it as simple as we've been led to believe.
are being given new wisdom that will have a profound
impact on twin soul couplings. Eventually they will transcend all others.
Over time, these sacred unions will emerge as the relationship of choice,
as we go through the age of Aquarius. Why?
Because this kind of soul-to-soul bonding will create the most powerful of Godmates. And these divine pairings represent the first serious step of
soul reunion during our journey back to Spirit.
As mentioned, when God
created your soul, it had an equal balance of male and female essence. One
of it as two distinct bodies of powerful Light energy within the same soul. One half
is the male body of consciousness; the other half is the female body of
consciousness. Although there is a
difference between these two energies within a single soul, they coexist in a very harmonious way, much like one magnet with two
opposite forces or polarities.
Because your soul is multi-dimensional, the female half of the soul is divided into many individual parts or
fragments. Each of these female fragments vibrates at a different frequency of
It is the same for the male half of the soul. Thus, within the same soul,
there are more than one female and male fragments each pair vibrating at different speeds of light. Within the soul, only two
fragments of light energy, one male and one female, will vibrate at the same speed or
frequency. These two, identical halves of the same soul are called twin souls, twin flames or twin rays.
Another way to say this is that each soul contains many twin pairings, but only one pair,
within all the pairs, have the same frequency of light and are considered
twins. Forever. You are one half of a pair.
During the Fall of mankind many
aeons ago, twins separated from one another in a moment of weakness to become physical man and
physical woman. Since that time, each set of twins have been searching for
their other half. And the Age of Aquarius will be the time when they find
one another for permanent reunion.
Our twin can be our lover, brother or sister, mother or father, another relative or a very dear friend. Regardless of who
your twin might be this lifetime around, you will feel a closeness to that
person that is usually very, very strong and goes way beyond all others. The
strongest attraction will be felt between lovers.
Who your twin is
during any given lifetime
depends upon the choices the both of you made prior to incarnating. Your twin may not be in body at this time;
perhaps he or she is serving as your loving guide to help you through your challenges
while here on Earth.
I won't go into more detail here, but there are reasons for
having many pairs of twins within the same soul. Suffice it to say that our
Source has an incredible imagination. What is important to keep in
mind is that as we begin to walk the path back home to God, it appears that
three very important things must happen. The first is that we awaken
spiritually and become aware of our divine connection. The second is that we balance the masculine and feminine
within ourselves. And the third is that we reunite with our twin to form a
spiritually mature and lasting partnership.
It's also important to point out that romantic, twin soul
relationships will only endure when two God mates are spiritually mature and ready
for it. There is an enormous amount of energy associated with twin pairings.
And this kind of partnership is very susceptible to the presence and
influence of the ego.
Spiritually mature individuals know how to deal with
the ego. And their partnerships are stable because of it. If two twins are
not spiritually advanced, their relationship will be electric, but stormy.
Eventually it will end.
Soul mate couplings are extremely important, because
they prepare us for eventual twin reunion. That is why they need to be blessed.
If you have not yet reached a stage of serious spiritual maturity, you can
have a far more rewarding soul mate affair than one with your
According to the all-perfect,
divine plan, the soul divisions that have taken
place all the way down to the individual level will, at some point, begin to reverse
themselves. First the twins will reunite as one, complete, spiritually aware soul.
Reunited twins will then group
together to reestablish the family of souls from which they came, and so on.
Each rejoining carries with it more and more love, joy, happiness and
ecstasy. The rapture we will
experience with each reunion will intensify more and more as original soul groups coalesce
with one another. The more we coalesce the more we will experience love and
joy. Most of this will take place in higher realms and
dimensions of experience and feeling. Ultimately, we will all reunite as ONE with our
Source, as it was in
As always, the return journey back to our Source has to begin with a free will
choice that each and every one of us makes on our own.
The first step of that incredible journey
home occurs when we become aware of our divine connection and decide to
grow spiritually. That will happen when we awaken to who we really are and then
begin living it. At that moment, a very important cosmic signal is released.
It not only
provides the soul with a very clear direction, but it also lets the soul know in no
uncertain terms that we now desire reunion with our twin. The universe will
pick up this signal and do all in its power to bring the two twins together.
Keep in mind that making the decision to grow spiritually is not enough. Living
your decision is the crucial part. Why? Because that is how we start to prepare ourselves
for the twin reunion. All of the preparation for a lasting relationship with our twin
has to take place inside of us. Much of that inner work has to do with the
ego and the imperfections that come with it. Over many lifetimes we
have had many opportunities to do this with our soul mate
relationships. All soul mate relationships eventually lead to
God-centeredness and lasting twin reunion. That is why they exist. That is
why God created them.
Whether you are having a
twin soul or soul mate relationship at this time, honor it for what it is. You are together for a
very important reason.
In order to write this section, I have done quite a bit of
research on the soul mate and twin soul concepts. My thoughts represent a
blend of that effort. One should not jump blindly into this soul adventure without the
right kind of preparation or you can become disillusioned and hurt.
You'll also need to know a
good deal about your soul and where you are on your spiritual path. The new
Aquarian insights we've been given today are radically different than the traditional, ego-based
teachings we've been exposed to during the Age of Pisces.
Aquarian romance is serious stuff and it requires a genuine desire to
understand what it is all about.
