*****

Sometimes we meet a special person and we wonder about the connection, perhaps we've met a soulmate, or perhaps we have even met a twin flame. But how do we tell the difference between the two? I'm going to list some very important distinctions between the two, as well as well outline the similarities which often make them hard to tell apart. To add, there are also karmic connections and near twin flames which can make things even more confusing. But with a careful analysis and self-honesty you can tell the difference.

Now I want to say one thing before I start listing the differences and similarities between them all. Neither connection is more or less special than the other, they are all equally special in their own way and it is best not to hold to this list as fact or an indication that that you are less special or your beloved is less special for not being a twin flame connection or even a soulmate connection. Each love shared is unique and every person's story is different. So most of all listen to that still small voice inside you which is guiding you towards truth.

Now, onto the explanations:

Twin Flame

-The first thing about a twin flame connection is that meeting them feels like you have met God. This is not just a metaphor or symbolic for how great you feel, this is an actual occurrence where you meet the creator of the universe and all life inside yourself. There is nothing more holy. This connection is completely spiritual and you become consumed and burned up with divine love. You will feel it not just physically but emotionally, mentally and religiously too. You will want to worship them as you see your perfect godself reflected back at you.

-You are in an initial state of bliss, you often cannot think or even move for hours on end each day, and this lasts for a long time, making you incapable of functioning and continuing life at a normal rate. You feel like you're in a bubble of incredible energy where time and the rest of the world doesn't exist. You spend most of your time spaced out on what feels like ecstasy, tons of chemicals are released in your body and you are flying on an incredibly intense high. It is literally like being drugged up and often consecutive sick days are needed to be taken from work.

-Whether you were spiritual or not before, suddenly you are and everything in the entire universe makes sense. There is perfect order and you realise and understand everything about life. It is like being given a key to the book of life and all the secrets pour into your mind. There is nothing hidden any longer, you are one with all life and you cry uncontrollably in wonder and joy at everything that has been revealed to you. You feel like destiny really does exist after all.

-After the bliss stage you go through such an incredible purging that you feel like you had taken a trip to heaven and then were plunged into hell. Again this is not symbolic or exaggerated, this is actually how it feels. You face everything inside yourself, all the old habits, baggage and negativity you didn't realise was still there. You are faced with your unconscious self and forced to feel it, deal with it, and release it. Nothing can remain shrouded or hidden in darkness.

-Your beloved twin flame is an exact mirror image and reflection of you. Although on the outside they may appear different in their appearance and habits, on the inside they match you perfectly. What you see in them and how you react to them is directly related and dependent upon what you see in yourself and how you react to and treat yourself. This will cause many synchronicities to happen as well as inadvertent telepathic and empathic communication as you work out and balance the connection between you both.

Soulmate

-Meeting a soulmate is like meeting a best friend you haven't seen for a long long time. You rush back into each other's arms and try to catch up on everything you've missed out on. There is a likeness and similarity in interests and an intense focus on the other. You want to spend as much time as you can with each other so as to not miss out on anything ever again.

-The energy can be very intense in a similar way to how it is with a twin flame and you may feel like you've met the love of your life. Soulmates are very supportive and usually don't argue about many things, unlike twin flames who can irritate each other immensely. If soulmates do argue then it is easily solved and both parties quickly come to a compromise.

-Soulmates have a great respect for each other and give the other space and rarely if ever encroach on their boundaries. Unlike a twin flame they will support you in your growth rather than push you to become your true self. They stay by your side and give suggestions and make sure you are happy and comfortable in life. They look out for you and nurture you.

-With a soulmate the intensity also tends to build up gradually over time. It is a connection that can become something much more through active love and conscious desire to make things even more amazing between the two of you. Though the connection will always come easily and effortlessly, it doesn't drag you down into hell for purging like a twin flame connection does, but builds you up instead and makes you a stronger and a more aware person gradually.

-Finally, a soulmate is the first type of soul connection you will experience before meeting a twin flame or a near twin flame. They tend to prepare you for your spiritual journey and path towards your true self and if you have never experienced any type of energetic connection before then this first kind is likely a soulmate connection which will make you ready for more love to come.

Near Twin Flame

-Sometimes you will see people calling this a false twin flame, soul catalyst, or secondary twin flame. You often meet a near twin flame either before or after meeting your actual/primary twin flame. A near twin flame helps prepare you for meeting your primary twin flame. You will feel an immense divine love with them but it is often not as prolonged as it is with a twin flame. There will also be synchronicity and telepathy shared just like with your primary twin flame but it is not always as overwhelming or as frequent.

-When meeting your near twin flame after meeting your actual twin flame it is usually for the purpose of giving you a mirror in the event of a separation with your primary twin flame. They help you release your blockages in a more controlled and less intense way. This is the person you will likely settle down with if you never meet your primary twin flame again.

-They heavily feel like a large part of you or even your other half just like a primary twin flame does. This can and does cause problems especially when you meet them before meeting your actual twin flame. You go through a pre-purging though again nowhere near as intense as with your primary twin flame. You usually meet your actual twin flame during the separation period with your near twin flame.

-Overall they will be supportive like a soulmate but carry the energy of a twin flame. This means you may love each other unconditionally and want only the best for each other and tend to show that harmoniously on the outside, especially during the initial stages, but on the inside and as time goes on you will start to feel the intense push and pull inside yourself. If you meet them after meeting your primary twin flame then things will be much calmer and more peaceful.

-The main difference between a near twin flame and a primary twin flame is that with a near twin flame you will go through the stages more smoothly and be able to handle it better and more consciously, whilst a primary twin flame will tend to drag you about all over the place with no chance to catch your breath and you will act mostly on unconscious instinct.

Karmic

-The last connection to discuss is the karmic soul connection. Most people on earth will fall in love with a karmic connection and at the beginning the relationship will be characterised by a sense of infatuation. There is usually nothing energetic about this and the attraction tends to be more physical or emotional, rather than spiritual. Over time you can feel this to be a type of 'emptiness', as if there is nothing much holding you together. This is because there is no strong pull on the soul level or any energetic cords linking your hearts together.

-Karmic relations are based on karma, e.g. if you meet a stranger one day on the street and are nice to them, they will in some future life likely be nice to you too. This tends to create an interaction loop, in that your connection is one of cause and effect. These shared actions between each other can either be pleasant or unpleasant. The pleasant ones are rarer but do happen and tend to be an easy interaction where you give and take love equally.

-A negative karmic connection is more common however and tends to happen for the sake of resolving something negative between you both. Once the infatuation passes you will find not much interests you about the person anymore and in fact you just can't think of anything good about them at all. Unfortunately a lot of people tend to stay in this type of dynamic for a long time but once the negative energy has been resolved they will leave and find something better.

-This stage of resolving negative karma can mimic a twin flame connection in that you become irritated in everything they do, but with a karmic connection you are not dragged in front of a mirror to take a good look at yourself and deal with your issues. Instead you tend to just experience a lot of confusion until it's over and then glad it's all done and dusted.

-Karmic relationships also tend to be short and don't last very long unless they are for the sake of resolving particularly unpleasant karma between you both or unless you are experiencing one of the rarer pleasant karmic bonds. Twin flame, near twin flame, or soulmate connections however often go on for years and will experience one or more recurring separations and reunions.

MysticalShaman 22-04-2015 03:24 PM

Loved this piece Scarlett, I think that your interpretations are spot on. I think a little bit need to be said more on the energetic pulls/ties/chords that are shared between twins and soul mates.

Based on your descriptions I met my twin and the a near twin/soul mate 18 months after, and only felt a heart energy pull with him when we broke up, for the first time, when we hugged goodbye. I get some syncs about him, like seeing his name everywhere and at first it was intense but it wore off quickly. With my twin I see his name still everywhere and there are many bizarre things that surround us. And many strange incidents and with him I still feel intense energy but I've made a conscious effort to block out the syncs around him and they only effect me now when I least expect them. But when I saw him for the first time in months the energy was still like nothing I'd ever felt. I always feel he feels something too because I try to move far away from him and then I look and he's moved closer. Like he'll be outside all night, in different circles, and as soon as I go in, he'll come in. He has the same awestruck dumb look on his face I do when I'm walking about looking for somewhere to sit :L Whereas I've picked up a few traits off my near twin, I feel like he was my near twin, but I met him after...while in separation from real twin and I believed we could've settled and spent lour life together. That's so weird(!).

Hello

This was very well put together and it flows with many of the same ideas I share on the topic.

AngelRain 22-04-2015 04:14 PM

Beautiful. Thanks Scarlette

Ciona 22-04-2015 10:31 PM

Where is the 'Like' button?? :D

Yup. I like how generic this is. It doesn't involve philosophical differences or the varying ideas behind the connections. It's just the connections themselves. Very nice and will probably result in less confusion around here, lol.

I've had all of these. Not saying that to brag! I'm saying it because whew, I'm exhausted lol.

My Twin, however, has encompassed them all. I would add that your Twin is of the same essence as you, as an expression of the same Source energy. But that is of course, my view. :) As you said in your disclaimer, people can take away what resonates with them. I'd add some things to the others listed as well as these things are so highly variable, per individual, but this is a wonderful piece to see in here. I think it will be a great starting point for people. :)

Very much enjoyed, Scarlett!! :) ♥

I guess the SM thing fits us, both then (both of us incarnated) and now (one of us in spirit).

I guess.

The issue is just how peaceful and free-flowing things were/are, and how we were (are) on the exact. same. wavelength. all the time. In one song about me she sang about how "the sadness disappears" any time I am near her, and that was the case for me as well (again both then in 3D, and then via Her bird gifts later).

There was never any of the pain, or angst, that people talk about here (well, there was years ago, but that was on a personal, not interpersonal, level, and for me at least was due to wounds suffered at the hands of others). But it seems much more intimate, on a Source level, than a "mere" SM pair. So we would be twins, except for the utter lack of dark nights of the soul and such.

~~~~~~~~~~

Keep in mind we met as kids.

So........

What would happen if a TF pair met and connected purely on an Inner Child level, thus bypassing all of the adult angst (as in from all of the "wrong" lessons that the adult world has typically "taught" you), going instead straight to the Source, unselfconsciously, joyously, superconducting style? Met as kids, and connected in that specific idiom, thus establishing it as the norm for us, even after she Crossed Over? Some here told me that children are closer to this "Source"...maybe that is the secret to making this SC stuff all work, just become two silly kids laughing at everything and each other, without nary a care in the entire world...

I've been told by many people, some of them dates, that I have a "boyish charm" about me, and the way I live my life indeed fits-easily moved to tears or amazement by some natural wonder. Can be by turns silly, adventurous, or laid-back, as the need naturally arises. I am never, repeat never, "hit on" by the females in the so-called "player" crowd. even tho I've been called handsome and yes charming and look 10-15 years younger than I am (52) and am in good shape. The only females who ever seem attracted to me are my grade school students, one of which has a huge crush on me right now (in her shy/introverted idiom).

Any possibility of any of that being close to the mark? Inner Child Twins?

gravitysrainbow 23-04-2015 03:02 AM

Thanks for posting - No doubt, I'm experiencing the TF connection. The bliss stage, the hellish stage - yep. He is me and I'm him. Did a meditation today and I actually saw myself transform into him. In the reflection of a mirror. Our story is like Apollo and Daphne - worshipping the laurel tree.

Each is unique. I experienced a lot of the issues before I met my twin, his troubles were catalyzed by our meeting I think. And that is consistent with my being a contrary soul. Basically there is a backward componant to my experience in life.

Not to say I assume no trouble will come down the line but I had a year of intense "dark night of the soul" stuff which culminated in our meeting. If you have been knowing one another since childhood it would follow that you wouldn't have the trouble TF's experience as that trouble is in direct relation to accepting the reality of a connection the ego violates. Kids are way more accepting egoicly, they haven't formulated a strong sense of self that rails against another "self"

Very lucky :)

rachaeld 23-04-2015 04:14 PM

This is a very well thought out explanation and I always enjoy hearing ScarlettHayden's wise perspectives. But yet, I find myself limited and confused by these definitions. I see alot online about what a TF is versus a soulmate vs. other connections. There are many people who say that if the relationship doesn't have this or that aspect, then it DEFINITELY is not a TF or that it ONLY is this kind of relationship because of x,y,z. But, isn't anything possible? Are we imposing a human lens in looking at these relationships that needs to define and categorize and analyze? If a relationship has characteristics of all of these definitions, then what? Does everyone that has a TF connection absolutely know for sure it is that?

I have had a relationship where I've experienced some of the traits of a TF relationship but not all. But boy, does it sound like a TF relationship based on how you all describe how these connections transform your soul, cause the "dark night of the soul"....the past few years have been rough for me and I've undergone dramatic clearing and transformation.

I've always been hesitant to describe this relationship as a TF connection but recently my guides gave me a message which seemed to imply it was. I was shocked. I asked for very, very obvious signs confirming this if that was the case and I saw them. But I struggle with how to define it.

Thoughts or guidance anyone?

LadyMay 23-04-2015 04:26 PM

I love the comments so far and it really affirms the main message that everything is unique to each individual and parties involved. Everything is potentially possible and there are no rights and wrongs, the purpose of this thread was mostly to give newbies something to refer to when they wonder what type of connection they are experiencing. In the beginning understanding is highly important and necessary for the rest of the journey to come, even if later on we shed our boxes and rights and wrongs of what something should look like or be, there are many variations in such an infinite universe and as such we can only generalise what happens to the majority, not necessarily what other potentials some experience.

So it is really a case of reading the explanations and then going with what is on your own heart based on what your soul and guides are saying to you. Matching all the traits is not important but moreover the feel that you get from reading each one and whether that matches the experiences you yourself have been or are going through.

As others have said no philosophy or theory was introduced to this, only the main symptoms that one *can* go through when they meet one of these four type of soul-connections.

One Soul 23-04-2015 04:29 PM

Nice reading.

I'm one who is choosing a soul mate connection over a TF connection.

My soul mate and I get along much better. She's more supportive and kind. She's emotionally stable and safe. She understands me. She is more dependable.

My TF and I fought. It's was like as much as we understood each other, we didn't. She's angry. She has a meanness in her I do not like or understand. She's strong and bold, but there's an edge to her that I cannot grasp. She's also very controlling.

She's the exact opposite of my soul mate.

But nothing compares to the passion and connectedness I shared with my TF.

Is it common for one to choose a soul mate over a TF?

annonymous 23-04-2015 07:48 PM

I feel all soul connections are karmic

don't subscribe to this twin flame label personally

they are a huge pain in the ......

I agree. There is so such thing as negative or positive karma. Karma is just cause and effect.

Lynn 25-04-2015 04:54 PM

Hello

There are lesson twin and soul mate connections that I feel come to us from time to time to move us forwards. To maybe break the life patterns we have been living in our past lives too many times over. Yet we do not see the value in what we call a bad relationship. I had that for 33 years and I know well now I was NEVER in LOVe with this man I was with. He was a lesson twin connection for me til the true connection was ready to come to me in this life. I value those 33 years while at times some of it was very dark I grew into whom I am.

I have met and will Sunday marry what is my Mirror Soul that pure other half of the original being we came into being when the first split happened. When that original Soul we were split. Over and over again readers have picked up on this are re connection with us. Past lives unfinished at times we know of and that bond that just is.

Its deeper than LOVe in the "I LOVe you feeling" its that connection that is so unconditional that we have. We know what the other feels and do not need words or physical contact to be there for the other. In part there is some Karmic issues that we are to clear from us to move forwards.

We started as friends both never seeing this end to come to us where others around us (as we are part of a Metaphysical community where we live ) did see us being ONE a couple if we could break the bonds of our bad relationships, we for a long time never saw that. We never wanted another relationship yet we wanted out of the one's we had. Its like out of the darkness into the light that one goes. We can live quite well in that place of darkness and survive but its primal in doing that.

Twin Flame or Soul Mate or Mirror Soul are all terms used that have such a vastness to them they almost defy classifications so we take parts of the whole that fit to us and go from there. I was raised you have "one man" only that you give yourself to and that is that. WRONG so wrong in nature as the one I now have moves me in ways I never thought were possible. We have that Soul to Soul becoming the one again moments that are beyond magical. Its not lasting but in the brief moments its amazing to be whole again.

We are individuals first and foremost I feel and we should seek to have that compliment not completion to us. Too many times we are looking for someone to complete us but we are that complete being already. What we need is that compliment part of us to share our walk of life even if it is not for the rest of our lives.

Same Sex twin flame27 25-04-2015 05:06 PM

Reading this was just another confirmation that I have met my twin flame :angel8:

Element 5 27-04-2015 05:45 PM

My Ex was most definitely karmic. I never felt a very strong connection with him in terms of soul, but know now that I learned an incredible amount from our relationship. When I 'found' my twin several years ago, I went through all the things described for a tf connection. We are not together...and it's doubtful we ever will be. I am now with someone I think to be a near twin. I definitely feel a very strong connection with him. I felt it immediately when we met, hence my confusion in determining the sort of connection we have. I also know I still feel like something is missing. That pull is still in me for some reason, and I have a hard time believing it would be there if I was with my actual twin.

SeaZen 29-04-2015 01:52 AM

Very interesting read. I especially enjoyed the soulmate description and was nodding my head smiling the whole time. It is indeed a beautiful, loving, supportive, blissful bond! :D

The part in the TF description about how you feel a high at the beginning of a relationship where your problems are non-existent for a while and when the high wears off, your problems return can apply to all relationship categories, not just the TF category IMHO.

The gut feel I got out of the TF description was "overwhelming intensity". Intense bliss, intense love, intense purging etc. Kind of like a tsunami of drug like body chemistry that allows you to see and feel heaven or hell.

The big question: Is "intense love", "intense bliss" or "intense hell" actually genuine love, bliss,hell etc. or is it merely intensity? Which begs the next questions...

What is the role of overwhelming intensity of anything? Is it to purge and heal or is to create a genuine love bond between 2 people? Can a love of this overwhelming intensity last?

QT Pie 29-04-2015 07:44 AM

It's completely different. When you meet and connect the energy is overwhelmingly intense. I had no idea what a TF was when I met mine. I couldn't touch him I had such a powerful sense I would literally explode if I did. But the couple times I did it was like touching my own hand. Our conversations wove in and out of the spoken word. But it only felt odd when I noticed he was talking and answering a thought in my head. By the last day the energy was so intense first a pressure that had me rooted to one chair for hours, I couldn't move all I could do was "be in it" before I left I could feel all of reality shifting like the whole world was trying to rip apart. It is most assuredly energetic and something you don't wonder if.. I had to "accept" this is a real phenomena. Not easy to digest for a practicing Buddhist.

There was attraction for sure, but it was quite secondary. The sensations I described had to do with our close proximity, not attraction.

Course, I don't go into the lore around it. I have no idea "what" it is, I just know "that" it is.

Thanks for sharing and your honesty. Its great to hear that you have an open mind about your experience and that you do not flat out categorize it using old world patterns and paradigms of "true love" or whatever and accept it for the newness of what it is. I do not doubt this phenomena or your experience one bit. Not sure what it is exactly but I wish the best for all who are experiencing it and hope they approach it for the newness of what it is and take it from there instead of trying to fit it into the box of previous experience.

Perhaps those who suffer from these experiences are unable to accept the fact that this is a new experience to humankind that cannot be categorized, explained away or experienced under the old paradigms, hence the suffering. Also the thought that this is the ultimate step and pinnacle in ones spiritual evolution is also a "dangerous" thing that can lead to suffering IMO.

Having a place to share what is going on inside you with others is a great thing. I really hope that this phenomena and forum subsection doesn't turn into a cult or religion with a set of rules but something that helps everyone take the next step in their spiritual evolution.

The whole thing that restarted my 'metaphysical' journey was meeting my TF.

My life has always been extremely complicated but the past 9 weeks and 5 days (yes, I'm counting) have totally blown my sock's off.

The purging, dark night of the soul, facing all my internal demons (and there is quite a few), the self doubt and denial...

This is an extreme rollercoaster ride and short of running I see no other option than to face it. As it is after 12 years living on the opposite side of the planet from when I grew up I'm not wanting to run, but face it and deal with it as I may never find her again.

Thank you for the write up, happy to see I'm not so unique but wish there was something I could do to lessen the negative feelings.

sarek 07-05-2015 09:16 AM

I have had the experience of meeting what will have been either a very close soulmate or a false twin flame prior to meeting my true twin flame.

The soulmate relationship began very much like an ideal love story but over time it went sour because of her mental health issues. This whole sequence of events also served to put me through some extremely heavy life lessons of my own, lesson which as it turned out were ones I needed to learn before meeting my true TF.

A healer has told me that my history with this soulmate goes back many lives and even involved a magic ritual that was meant to keep us coming back together. This spell was ceremoniously terminated with the help of light beings.

When I was still in the breaking up phase with this soulmate I met my real TF.
That relationship started off like a rollercoaster with one crisis after the next collision. Every such event led to a real life personality change within me, the speed in which that happened was unbelievable. People just dont do that in real life, but it definitely did happen to me.

After the rollercoasters had subsided we started more building of the connection, which ran perfectly parallel with our developing our work for the Earth transcension process for which we are here.

noxlumina 16-05-2015 07:05 PM

Is this a common feeling with a karmic connection? You feel like you are picking up where you left off, or like there is an immediate connection...

...but then it's like you wake up and it was all a dream. You thought you had everything in common, but turn out to have nothing in common. The relationship has run its course.

I've been through so many of these that I don't trust the feeling of "connection" anymore. I just make note of it and proceed as if I were in any other relationship. I've had about six different "soulmates" that turned out not to be.

I'd almost rather not know if there's a karmic connection or not. When I feel like I have a "connection" with someone, I get lots of inappropriate expectations... the feeling never seems to be on both sides. It's just better for me to move slowly and treat any relationship like any other relationship.

Is that a typo-did you mean "meant to keep us FROM coming back together"...?

Is this kind of thing common? Inimical forces of whatever sort keeping twins apart?

Thank you ScarletteHayden you explained perfectly about each connection in such a simple form.

Kudos for posting a kind of overview classification of these spiritually engineered relationships. From the looks of it, most people agree with the four basic types of connections/definitions.

Although this whole soul mate and twin flame thing is still an experience that has individual variations/distinctions - based on what I've read on this very popular forum topic through the years - I think this post is a helpful starting place for people asking that frequently heard question, "So what is a TF/SM?" etc.

Thanks for posting this! It had made things a lot clearer.
Can I ask... When you meet your twin flame and first have that bliss moment and then after you feel like you're being 'plunged into hell', does this happen to both of you? Your twin flame and yourself? And do you both feel it at the same time?

Actually I wrote a thread about this recently you might want to check out. Because I believe now there are different types of twin flames, the near twin, but also the mutual and non-mutual twin-flame. Some twin-flames have mutual relationships but most that you read about don't. So that means only one will experience the phenomena, but not the other.

I wrote about it here: Mutual and non-mutual energetics. Hope that helps!

Thank you Scarlett. Anybody feel like this description of the TF experience is exactly what you experienced? Curious.

Yes. The feeling like I had gone to heaven and everything made sense, then being dropped back to earth. Upon coming back to earth I cry constantly and feel so depressed and confused. I'm in a daze and everything in me wants to go back to where I was. All I can think is, "Life sucks. Everything sucks. Everything is so trivial and insignificant. I want to go back."
I can only describe it as a Near Death Experience.
I know that my lesson is to get to that state of bliss through other means. I've been shown what it's like and I feel lucky, but I need to do the work to get there without my TF giving me a shortcut.
It's such a relief to read other accounts here. I've known my TF for about 2 decades and at times I've thought I must be crazy.

bluebird21 11-07-2015 10:14 PM

That's exactly how I felt. I had been shown Truth and now it's my turn to get back to that place on my own.

I had a yoga teacher who figured it out. She said she's "spaced out" all the time and her family are always telling her to come back down to earth. She was about 50-60ish. Oh, to be in that place all the time!

LadyMay 13-07-2015 11:58 AM

Being spaced out is not really a good thing actually, it's a sign of ungroundedness and unintegrated energy, which is harmful and the opposite to spiritual... just though I'd mention that :)

bluebird21 14-07-2015 03:46 AM

That's a challenging place to be, especially if you don't know you are in it.

LilMariposa85 22-07-2015 07:11 PM

That's an awesome way to summarize it. However, remember.......we have karma with a lot more people than you think. Sometimes we fulfill karma even when we aren't thinking about it.

I thought I would add this link here too, for anyone who wants to do more reading and see these types of connections from a different angle: http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/sh...ad.php?t=88598

The scariest part of meeting ones twin flame is knowing they are on the inside but since the initial meeting was too short its like you can't acknowledge it out loud because that is some creepy **** to have that kind of infatuation within such a short time especially when there is 0 communication after the first break.

Howla Dark 19-08-2015 12:03 AM

How would you define being in love with someone you haven't physically met but only talked to on the internet?

PhoenixSifa 02-09-2015 11:47 PM

Infatuation or TF/SM
 
I am going to attempt to shorten this as much as possible.
I met a friend who I initially communicated with for two years via messages and phone calls. I'd like to add, my initial reaction was only to be friends. Especially, since I was already involved in a relationship with someone I thought was the 'ONE'. As the relationship began to diminish, My friend and I grew closer. Long story short, we ended up pursuing the romantic aspect of our relationship. On our first date, apon meeting, I was instantly taken back by his energy. Also, I was so nervous I even got goose bumps. Three times during that first day, as he touched me, I would 'shock' him. We spent he next two days in a cabin. The energy was euphoric, almost like a drug. Although, we both unwillingly agreed not to become intimate, the energy was so intense that when I closed my eyes, the white light of the energy was all I could see--Building up in the pit of my stomach. He also was taken back by the surge of energy that he claimed to begin in his tree of life (scrotum) and shot straight up into his tummy. We literally would have to separate to contain our emotions.
I am new to exploring my spiritual self, spiritual ascension, self healing and meditation. I am in fear of this powerful feeling. Yet, I feel safe with him. He supports me in all my endeavors. I find myself doing self checks to eliminate negativity within and emotional baggage; and completing tasks I usually procrastinate on. Also, it seems like everything has been lining up in every aspect of my life. The coincidences are perplexing at best. I could go on and on!!!!!
Please someone, explain what this is.

TF vs Near TF
 
Here is my opinion based on my experiences. In 2004 I was in a bad marriage and that is when the first deep soul connection appeared. I had 4 more after that, the 3rd one being what I thought was my TF at the time. I went through the dark night of the soul with him. They talk about runners and chasers. I was a stalker. I couldnīt control it. I ended up doing a past life regression to start the healing process. A year after meeting him I met another. I went through it all again but not as intense.

So, I decided just to enjoy life, I had a few relationships but nothing hit me in the heart like those 2. In 2013, I saw "His" picture online on a friends account and contacted him. Little did I know that he knew. He tried to get to me then but was detained in his country. Other stuff happened in between but I never went or dated another man after that initial encounter.

About 4 weeks ago I came to the conclusion that it wasnīt going to happen again in this lifetime and I had settled for the life I had and would accept and be content with it. Then he contacted me.

He had got out of his country and was coming my way if I wanted him. I had a few scary moments but gradually, they disappeared. He arrived, we experienced the "Bliss Bubble" then everything started happening, the mirror phase. He stayed a week and had to leave as it was too much for him and I to handle. Thing is, we both know what this is so no matter what strife we had together, it doesnīt cancel out the connection. It isnīt about waiting and pining, it is about "The Knowing" and keeping the faith. If I had not gone through all of the deep stuff years ago, I doubt I would have been prepared for this now. Hope this helps :)
