Soul Mate vs. Twin Soul
- What exactly is
a Soul Mate?
- A Soul Mate is a
kindred soul with whom you have a special connection, spiritually
as well as physically. Now don't get the idea that physically
means sexually or through a love type relationship, because it
doesn't. It can be platonic, it can be as mother and daughter
and so on.
- A Soul Mate is unique to others we share time, experience
and karma with in that they come into our lives to help us learn
a major spiritual lesson that will hopefully propel us over a
deep chasm that has long been part of our spiritual psyche. A
soul mate can be a lover, a friend, someone who suddenly comes
into your life and then just as quickly moves out (after the
lesson is over).
- They don't come into every incarnation, which is one of the
things that make a Soul Mate special. I've noticed that a lot
of people think the person they're married to or madly in love
with is their soul mate. That's a sweet thought, but it doesn't
work that way. Those people who you feel this unique closeness
to are simply souls that you have spent many lifetimes with in
the past. You have varying degrees of karma to share with these
souls on many levels on for many subjects. They are special in
their own right, but they are most probably not a "Soul
- What is a Twin
- A Twin Soul is a little harder to explain. At the time of
your creation into a spiritual essence, you were created with
an equal counterpart. Many people call this simultaneous creation
of two spiritual beings the birth of Souls, thereby making your
counterpart your Twin Soul. These two souls progress along their
spiritual paths on a very individualistic basis. Never incarnating
together, and most likely not even in the same solar system.
It's part of the Universal balance, the creation of Yin and Yang
so to speak.
