What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life? … to strengthen each other…to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot

Twin Flame Relationship

Differences Between Soulmates and Twin Flames

Many people think soulmates and twin flames are the same thing. Although there are similarities, soulmates and twin flames are different and can’t be the same. Thanks to books, movies and television, soulmates and twin flames are also often believed to be relationships whose purpose is all about romance and close to perfect. These relationships are about so much more than romance.  They occur in our lives to challenge each individual to become better versions of themselves.

Now we fully understand that there are many different beliefs when it comes to soulmates and twin flames. We are not here to argue, we are here to give those that are looking for understanding and clarity some help. If you believe differently, feel free to find a site that subscribes to the same belief you do. Below are the ways we differentiate between soulmates and twin flames.

1. Twin flames rarely, if ever, go through a period of separation. If they do it is not their doing but perhaps a family illness or job that has temporarily kept them away from their twin flame. Soulmates are another story. They separate on emotional and physical levels. The communication between soulmates stops, one or both may refuse to even see each other in person as well. This time is to bring about change that they can not achieve together. If they don’t both make the changes, they separate again, sometimes permanently.

2. When twin flames separate, they stay in touch as much as possible. If they cannot, they are not worried that the status of the relationship has changed. They are not worried that their twin flame no longer cares about them. They are not being shut out or disrespected, and they know that. When soulmates separate, one or both worries what the other is feeling, and seem to go right to worst case scenario. Instead of having faith like twin flames do, soulmates can question the bond they share constantly. In soulmate relationships, being apart in any way seems to bring about stress and off the wall behavior such as stalking social media, trying to force meetings, or simply dwelling on nothing but their soulmate. With twin flames there are no insecurities, but with soulmates, there seems to be quite a lot.

3. Twin flame relationships involve individuals that have already passed the “soulmate tests” and they have already finished with their individual lessons. There is no painful or hard lessons to be learned between twin flames. Soulmate relationships are very melodramatic and can cause intense turmoil and upheaval in a person’s life. Soulmates have often said, before the growth period is completed, that the connection is both a curse and a blessing.

4. A soulmate relationship is really relevant to the two people involved. It is all about them. A twin flame relationship has a much bigger picture. The purpose of the twin flame union is to benefit the masses. They will contribute on a much larger scale. Soulmates are more inclined to just enrich one another’s lives.

5. People involved in a twin flame relationship usually do not think they are in a soulmate relationship. They know the higher purpose their relationship entails and have been prepared to encounter their twin their whole lives. They didn’t hope they would meet their twin, they knew they would. Soulmates often think they are in twin flame relationships because they think they are the same thing. Some insist it is a soulmate relationship on steroids. Some even prefer the term for whatever reason. Soulmates often have at least one person who runs from the connection. This almost never happens in twin flame relationships but is par for the course with soulmates.

6. Soulmate relationships can end. There is more of a free will when it comes to soulmates. You don’t make your changes, you don’t stay together. It is that simple. Soulmates may always share a bond but not always be a part of each others lives. Twin flames are quite different. Twin flames do not choose to be apart. They are aware of their higher purpose and respect that purpose and wish to fulfill it. Twin flames would never think to end their relationship, and would have no reason to.

7. You can have more than one soulmate. Your pet could be your soulmate. Your brother, sister, or any family member can be a soulmate. A twin flame? Only one, and that is if you are lucky. Twin flames are couples. A family member or a pet would not be your twin flame.

8 Soulmates are much more common than twin flames. Not every one will meet a soulmate or a twin flame. Not everyone gets one in this life. Since soulmates are more common, most people would meet a soulmate rather than a twin flame.

9. In soulmate relationships, one or both parties may not understand and accept the connection they share. Because of this they may choose to run, marry/date other people, or sabotage the relationship. Twin flames do not do this. They both recognize and honor their connection/relationship right away for the most part.

10. Twin flame relationships are very drama free and are easier relationships organically. There is no fighting for control, no manipulation, no power struggles, no insecurities. In soulmate relationships, you see a lot of what we just mentioned, and even more. Soulmate relationships are hard, because change is hard.

In closing, either relationship is a blessing. Both twin flame relationships and soulmate relationships have the potential to be equally satisfying. One isn’t better than the other, one is just easier than the other.

Twin Flame Relationship of Psyche and Cupid

The Twin Flame Relationship of Psyche and Cupid

The love story of Psyche and Cupid (Eros in Greek mythology) is one of a beautiful twin flame relationship brought to us from Greek/Roman mythology. Psyche is the Greek word for butterfly, as well as soul, and as we examine the story of Psyche and Cupid, or Psyche and Eros as the case may be, we are touched by the tale of an eternal twin flame relationship. As the butterfly symbolizes transformation, as the caterpillar cocoons itself to become a butterfly, it also symbolizes the transformation we all must make as a result of having an eternal twin flame relationship in our lives. And Psyche symbolizes the eventual happiness and joy received as the reward for all the suffering endured on the road to that twin flame relationship.

Psyche, then, is the human soul, which is purified by sufferings and misfortunes, and is thus prepared for the enjoyment of true and pure happiness.  (From Bulfinch’s Mythology:  The Age of Fable,  chapter XI)

Twin Flame Relationship, Psyche by John Waterhouse

Psyche, a mortal princess, was the youngest of three daughters, who was known for her beauty. She was so beautiful that people began to worship her, rather than worshiping Venus (Aphrodite in Greek mythology), the goddess of love and beauty. Venus was enraged that she had lost the admiration of her people for a mere mortal and many of her temples began to crumble because there was no money to repair or sustain them. She was also very jealous of Psyche’s beauty so she summoned her son, Cupid (Eros in Greek mythology) to put a spell on her so no man would ever marry her. When he sprinkled the potion on her, he was so startled by her beauty he pricked both of them with an arrow. Her older sisters were married, but there was still no suitor for Psyche, so her parents consulted an Oracle, to see if she would find a husband. Aphrodite wanted revenge and convinced the Oracle to tell them Psyche would marry an ugly, evil monster. Yikes! Lesson number 1: Never piss off a goddess!

Psyche resigned herself to her fate and would sit on top of the mountain every night and await her husband, who was so hideous that he would only come to her in total darkness so she could not see his face. One night, after being encouraged by her sisters, she decided to look at his face. That night when he came to her, she raised the lamp to his face, only to discover she was married to Cupid. Surprised, he ran to the window and flew away, and she fell to the ground unconscious. When she awakened she went to seek the help of Venus, who gave her three impossible challenges to complete. After completing the first two challenges, she was given the final challenge to descend to the Underworld and return with a box of beauty from Prosperine (Persephone in Greek mythology), the wife of Hades (Pluto in Greek mythology). Even though she was told by Prosperine to keep the box closed, she could not resist the temptation to look inside. It was filled with darkness and she fell into a deep slumber.

Jupiter was so moved by Cupid’s love for his wife, he gave her a glass of ambrosia, the drink of immortality. Cupid and Psyche were joined in eternal marriage, an eternal twin flame relationship, and continue to live happily ever after. The story of Cupid and Psyche is the basis for the fairytale, Beauty and the Beast.

As we review the story of Psyche and Cupid, we can see the reality of their twin flame relationship. Even though she believed him to be hideous, she still had unconditional love for him. They had to overcome obstacles to be together, and through it all their love for each other won. Psyche had many adversities and life lessons, even going up against a goddess! Cupid loved her so much he asked Jupiter to grant her immortality so they could live eternally in their twin flame relationship love.

Twin Flame Relationship Presley and Ethel Bradshaw

Twin Flame Relationship Presley and Ethel Bradshaw

Ethel and Presley Bradshaw twin flame relationship soulmates

Twin Flame Relationship

Presley and Ethel Bradshaw had a real twin flame relationship. This couple from Louisville, Kentucky were married October 21, 1938. They were married  for 73 years! All we can say to that is WOW! That is longer than my mom has been alive! Although Ethel entered a nursing home four years ago when her health started to fade, her husband continued to visit her until moving into the home to be with her two years later. They lived together for longer than a lifetime, and then on Monday, January 23, 2012, they died within four hours of each other. They are truly the perfectly divine example of kindred spirits and both a true soulmate and twin flame relationship.

Even though Ethel suffered dementia she certainly must have felt the disconnect of her husband and twin flame relationship partner, Presley. This loving husband would hold her hand and kiss her lovingly until the end. She may not have been consciously aware that he had departed the earthly plane, but her soul certainly must have. She could not, and would not, stay earthbound without him by her side. In twin flame relationship pattern, she too, just four hours later, quietly left this world to be reunited with him on the other side.

We can not know, nor pretend to know the life lessons these two great souls learned by being together. What we can  know, however, is that their being together was the karmic seed and foundation of their twin flame relationship. Their life lessons and spiritual growth was destined to occur while they were in the relationship together. Certainly they had issues, arguments and concerns just like any relationship would have, but they were destined to work through the issues and receive their personal growth together.

Twin Flame Relationship - Meeting in Heaven

As we have previously discussed in other postings, soulmates and their twin flame greater counterparts, usually do most of their spiritual growth, personal growth and character expansion during the breakup phases of the twin flame relationship. It seems that we, as humans have the greatest potential for growth and expansion when we are in pain. Painful experiences teach spiritual growth because when we are usually in that dark night of the soul, we reach out to the Divine to aid our suffering. Breakups and ending of a soulmate relationship, or twin flame relationship, are very painful experiences. It is during that time we are required to pull ourselves together and carry on with life without the soulmate by our side. In and of itself, this is a very challenging situation.

Presley and Ethel, however,experienced the details of their soulmate contract, or soulmate agreement, while they were together. That was the nature and destiny of their twin flame relationship. Few soulmate and twin flame relationships are destined to be together for the long haul. Soulmates come into our lives, we learn and assimilate the experience, and then sadly must end that soulmate relationship. At the time we are unable to see past the heartbreak and devastation we feel because all we can focus on is the loss of the soulmate and the disconnectedness we feel. This was so for Presley and Ethel. They lived, loved and experienced their lives together and were so connected that at the end, they had to depart together so their twin flame relationship could continue on the other side.  Ethel just had no reason to be here any longer without Presley and so she went to be with him to continue to hold his hand in Heaven.

Twin Flame Relationshp of June Carter and Johnny Cash

Twin Flame Relationship of June Carter and Johnny Cash

The twin flame relationship of June Cater  and Johnny Cash one of the great love stories. This morning I finished re-watching ‘Walk the Line’ starting Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix (who should have won the Oscar for that performance) as June Carter and Johnny Cash. I had watched this film when it was first released in 2005 and was touched by the story of these two legends whose 35-year marriage is one of the greatest love stories of all time. But as I finished watching it this morning I realized they truly had the ultimate soulmate / twin flame relationship that withstood the test of time. And what  a love story it is in its perfection and also a great example of a twin flame relationship.

twin flame relationship june carter johnny cash

Twin Flame Relationship June Carter and Johnny Cash

In the mid 1950s Johnny and June met during a tour of the Opry company. He fell for her right away although he was already married to his first wife, Vivian. Eventually his marriage failed when Vivian left him because of his drug and alcohol problems.  Johnny was even arrested in El Paso for trying to bring amphetamines from Mexico across the border but he never did ‘hard time’ as he wrote about in Folsom Prison Blues, and only had to pay a $1,000 fine to be released. He used drugs and booze to ease his way through life and deal with issues surrounding a verbally abusive and emotionally distant father as well as some guilt he may have internalized when his 12-year old brother died. June helped him kick his drug habit by being there for him and letting him know she would not really have anything to do with him as long as he was drugging and boozing. He kicked them both and proposed marriage to her many times before she finally relented, years later, and agreed to marry him. They married March 1, 1968, just about 12 years after their first meeting.

Not only is their twin flame relationship story is a fine example of unconditional love and patience, the two life lessons that are predominant in their relationship, but to the testimony of a changed man. While Johnny was boozing and drugging, June cared for him but she would not enable him, refusing to have that much to do with him, other than a friendship, while on the road together. What was their Soulmate Crisis Point? When his wife left him, Johnny wanted to be with June right away but she would not have him. She did not want to be around him. She just shut him down and detached from him to allow him to figure it out, although she did flush his drugs down the toilet a time or two.

Johnny had to pull himself up and out of the muck of his boozing and drinking ways, he had to put his ‘bad boy’ days behind him and become a good man. And he did. First and foremost, however, he did it for the right reasons, he did it for himself, but ultimately June was his prize. She was the catalyst who caused him to change his life, change his ways and evolve into the great man the world grew to love. The Man in Black became a legend and his music will live forever. Throughout his lifetime he attributed his success to the woman who loved him unconditionally and who was there for him, gently urging him to grow, evolve and become a man. I bet the soulmate contract between these two was something!! While she agreed to give him the unconditional love he never received from his father and he matured and developed into the strong God-loving good man he became. It so perfectly fits into the paradigm of a twin flame relationship because they could not be together until Johnny got HIS act together.

They were together until June’s death in May of 2003. Johnny was there with her in the hospital and he held her hand while she died. Johnny died a short 4 months and 3 days later where they were reunited.  I almost wrote to make preparations for their next lifetimes and to find each other again, but I pause… I am NOT convinced they had to come back and have another lifetime together… I hope they are able to stay on the other side in sweet, loving bliss. Their story is truly an inspiration to us as well as many others around the world. Profound blessings to you, June and Johnny, wherever you are, you truly got it! And this is one twin flame relationship story where they truly did live happily ever after.

Johnny wrote Flesh and Blood which was bout his love for June.

You can read about another great twin flame relationship with the soulmate story of Presley and Ethel Bradshaw.

Ring of Fire was written in 1963 by June to tell about their deep connection to each other and there are no better words in the world than these to define a twin flame relationship!


Lyrics to Ring of Fire

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire
