Twin Flame? Soulmate? Karmic Soulmate? 


A 'twin flame' is the polar opposite of 'soulmate'.  While a 'soulmate' is our perfect match in every sense of it's meaning, a 'twin flame' is our perfect mirror.


Twin flame relationships lift you up, bring you down, they teach you lessons and they are extremely intense (in a pleasant and painful way).  Being in such a relationship is similar to a roller coaster where you never know what is going to happen next.  Their goal is to open your eyes and see things differently (from what they really are), which is not an easy task.  They make you face your life lessons and what you need to change to grow.  A twin flame’s task is to help you accept all of your imperfections and cognize your true self.

A twin flame is the mirror image of yourself, a person who will always stay in your heart no matter what and a person who helps you grow mentally, physically and spiritually.

A twin flame relationship is passionate but most of the time it is far from a long-term relationship, as the two come together and separate often until both have learnt lessons during separation and come together in one final union.  But not all hope is lost.  Twin flame relationships have the potential of being reignited in the future and no matter how hard things feel for you at the moment, know that all of this can ultimately change when you least expect it.  The twins often dream of each other, and can feel when their twin is being intimate with another as if they are there which is torture, as their energies are intertwined.  They pick up on each others thoughts and feelings and often face similar life events or mirrored opposite events at similar times.  Thier connection is one that will last a lifetime.  They are one in the same and the trick is to view the relationship in 5D rather than 3D although this is not easy for the more spiritual of the two.   You cannot be hateful to a twinflame as you will only be hurting yourself, instead focusing energies on self love and healing, and sending unconditional love to your twin.  Surrendering that love to the universe, and moving on with life, until perhaps one day a union is possible once both have faced their truth and come together again in peace.


When a Butterfly spirit animal enters your life, it augers a time of important changes, physically and emotionally which will transform your life, to a higher recognition of oneself.  Butterflies will often gather around true love (soul mates) between people.  

Seeing a butterfly can be a sign from your angels that transformation and change are on their way. Just as a caterpillar will meta morph into a beautiful butterfly and take flight, so too shall we undergo similar inner transformation. When a butterfly particularly attracts our attention, we know this to be a sign. It may fly in front of our face or land on us whilst we sit in a garden. These signs are hard to ignore and the curious will always seek an answer.

Spiritual Meaning

Butterflies are both fragile and uplifting, so it is not difficult to understand why we become enchanted by these small creatures. They start out in a lowly state, when they are ready, they weave a cocoon around their body and privately begin to change, radically, only to emerge triumphant with wings and take to the air. So their most basic meaning is that of transformation. Slowly but steadily transforming yourself in private, ready now to emerge and fly.

Butterflies encompass the meaning of love, very simple love and joyfulness. When we see one flit by, we are reminded of the beauty of life and nature.  They encompass patience, for the caterpillar transforms slowly into its true potential.  Although butterflies live but short lifespans, they live it freely and joyously.  They also represent change.  Most directly, this is the message for us when the butterfly engages with us.  This change can allow us to flourish and become even more free, and we are advised to flow with the changes. They may need to happen, one way or another.  We should relinquish control when we see the butterfly and let the change happen; it will probably be out of our control anyway.

A Metaphor For The Soul

Think of your soul as on a long journey during its sojourn on Earth and elsewhere; think of the amazing transformation our souls undergo over time, patiently and yet ever changing. We grow more spiritual as we evolve, unable but to help growing closer to the divine.  The same parallel with the butterfly's wise journey. In the end, this fragile creature flies free above the rest of us.  When we see a butterfly, we are reminded of this soul journey, and not to rush our life.  We can't force our wings to grow overnight. It is not a flashy or public occurrence. With the slow patience and at the pace of nature, wings grow and unfurl.
