What Is a Twin Flame Reading? These Are the Signs You've Found Your Perfect Match

A "twin flame" isn't necessarily a romantic soul mate — but they will always change your life.

Have you ever met someone who had a profound impact on your life? It's possible it was your twin flame. But what precisely does that phrase imply? How do you know when you've found yours, and, perhaps more significantly, how do you know when you haven't? 

"These high-level spiritual love connections definitely happen," says Donna Taylor, a psychospiritual mentor and love coach. "However, there is a very fundamental misunderstanding of what that implies." 

Many people mistakenly believe that a twin flame and a romantic soul mate are the same thing, yet the two are completely distinct. While platonic relationships can be passionate, they can also be purely platonic.

 After all, sex isn't everything, and twin flames are passionate, life-altering relationships that can change who you are for the rest of your life.

So, what is a twin flame?

A twin flame is not your soul mate, contrary to common belief. It doesn't have to be someone you fall in love with to be your twin flame (although it often is). "This type of soul-to-soul connection isn't about romance. It's all about spiritual development "Psychic Visions' Donna explains. "When you meet them, everything in your life changes. You begin to perceive the world in a new light. It encourages you to connect with the divine, transform your awareness, and grow as a more soulful creature during this journey." A romantic partner, a friend, a mentor, or even a pupil can be a twin flame.

The relationship is reciprocal. It's not a spiritual one-way street. When you meet your twin flame, they will transform your life forever, and you will reciprocate. A twin flame relationship, according to intuitive energy healer Donna Taylor, helps us link the divine masculine and feminine within us all. (Regardless of our gender, we all have masculine and feminine energy.)
