This last week I’ve had several people ask my thoughts and insights on Twin Flame relationships – how can they find their Twin Flame? What happens in those relationships?
Here is my experience:
First, there is a difference between a Twin Flame relationship and a Soul Mate relationship. There are also romantic relationships we can enter in to that are neither of these. I’ve had all of these in my lifetime, and can absolutely say each type is unique and comes with its own set of challenges. I also think there’s a romanticized idea of what a Twin Flame is, as if meeting that person will be some sort of magical doves-singing-clouds-parting-epiphany-of-love that is always blissful and you never have to worry about working at a relationship again. Most often, that’s not the case.
A SOUL MATE relationship is with a person who is part of your soul family that you have had lifetimes of experiences with. Maybe in one lifetime as husband / wife, another as father / daughter, another as siblings. You can and do have multiple soul mates (some say dozens or even hundreds) in all places around the world. Ultimately, you’ve agreed to come together with this person again in this lifetime for a mutual purpose – likely to heal, or to elevate your consciousness, or to grow. Continue reading
I recently had a few people make comments that “my hormones must be raging” or I must be “extra emotional” because I’m pregnant. And, not coincidentally, I had 3 different people come to me these last few days with similar “hormonal” issues asking for my insights. I can’t bite my tongue any longer, so allow me to share:
When it comes to being a woman we have two privileges in life: one is being pregnant, the other is our moon cycle (aka our monthly period). But our culture has a terrible way of understanding and honoring the tremendous energetic shifts a woman goes through during these times. In our patriarchal history (not dissing men, just our cultural historical bias) men and women alike have been relegated to blaming hormone shifts as the reason women are “emotional” or crave chocolate or seem unwieldy. And yes, some women “lose their shit” (to quote a friend recently) just before that time of month, or when pregnant we seemingly display more extremes. I personally have been way more sensitive myself during this pregnancy with baby #2. But hormones and chemistry are just the surface and more like an end result, not the cause. The true root is energy and power.
In this Web Episode, we covered:
- How people are experiencing transitions across the board from career changes, to shifts in consciousness, to relationships falling apart, to family members who are ill.
- The struggle of expansion and why times of transition are so hard
- How to let go of the “old” before the “new” is known
- The 3 cycles of life (death, rebirth and growth) and why these are critical to embrace during times of transition
- The characteristics of a conscious transition, and how to honor the “old” so the “new” can come in
At the end we answered several questions form attendees – from divorce to career to letting go.
We hope it serves you on your path….
