While this can happen to any of us, at any stage of our lives, there are several factors that can cause us to miss the experience. Stress, overwork, negative thought patterns, low self-esteem and poor lifestyle habits can all cause us to close our eyes, and our hearts, to the arrival of this special person.

What is the Difference Between a Twin Flame and a Soul Mate?

When you reach the highest level of consciousness in one life the soul is no longer able to remain in a single physical body. At this point your soul splits into two, returning to earth in two separate bodies. These two beings are left roaming the earth, each exactly half of the energy that you originally were.

This other half is your twin flame, an exact mirror of yourself. Your meeting will leave you feeling as though you are instantly whole again. You are destined to connect with one another on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. This person is both your ideal friend and lover.

As your mirror self, they are able to allow you access to a better understanding of your deepest dreams, desires, needs and shadow elements. Reconnecting will allow you both to reach your highest potential.

Soulmates, on the other hand, are cut from the same cloth, closely related but with two different, individual energies. They are most often your platonic friends or family members, as opposed to your romantic partners.

So, How do you know when you have met your twin flame? Watch for these 15 signs:
