Have you ever met a person and immediately felt as if you’ve known each other for years? Did you feel instantly attracted to them? Perhaps you thought you were crazy for feeling that way but this is one of the twin flame signs and symptoms.
I understand that you may have many questions regarding twin flames (also known as twin souls). After all, many people get confused about this term and mistake it for soulmates but they are very different.
I’ll do my best to help you learn about twin flame signs and symptoms as well as their union.
You see, a twin flame or soul connection is the other half of your soul. Your soul was once united and existed as one but it landed in two different bodies.
When you finally meet the other half of your soul, you feel drawn to that person straight away and that can only happen once in your lifetime. On the other hand, soulmates are two souls that are made from the same energy.
Meeting your twin flame doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll lead to a romantic relationship with that person. You could encounter your twin soul and your relationship evolves into an intense and amazing friendship.
Another difference between a twin soul and a soulmate is that not everyone has a twin flame, whereas everyone is destined to find their soulmate.
However, if you do have a twin soul, then you’re bound to meet that person at some point in your life. Perhaps you’ve already met them but you weren’t 100% sure about it.
Twin flame signs and symptoms
Sometimes it can be tough to recognize any twin flame signs since they can be complex and confusing. There are times when your powerful connection will be tested and you’ll struggle to keep it alive.
Believe me, you’re not the only one going through this as these things are part of every twin flame journey. But as your beliefs are challenged and you start to reveal your flaws to each other, your connection will only get stronger.
If you’re still wondering whether another person is your true soul connection, then take a closer look at the following twin flame signs and symptoms, as they can help you get the answer you seek.
1. Both of you feel the same emotions at the same time
You need to understand that twin souls have a deep and meaningful bond and they’re able to think of each other all the time. This is something that you have no influence on, as it happens on a subconscious level.
That’s why you’re capable of sharing the same emotions at the same time. When your twin soul feels depressed or sad, you’ll feel the same way and it’ll be difficult for you to explain why or how it happens.
Sometimes, you’ll catch yourself being overwhelmed with joy for no apparent reason and the truth is this can be very draining on your body and mind. These feelings are hidden deeply in your chakra centers and only emerge to the surface when you’re close to your mirror soul.
2. You both have the same dreams
Has it ever happened to you that while your partner or friend was retelling you their dream, that you remembered you also had the same one? If yes, then that’s an obvious sign of a twin soul connection.
You may have thought that it was a coincidence but it actually wasn’t. It was your souls coming together and sharing the same dream.
Other synchronicities that you may experience with your twin soul include listening to the same song or repeatedly seeing 11:11 on a clock, which signals a spirit presence. Also, if your body and mind are suddenly overpowered by an intense energy for no particular reason, that could indicate that your twin soul is nearby.
3. You understand the complex and deep parts of each other
You know that you haven’t seen this person before and yet you feel like you’ve known each other for years. It’s like they know what you’re thinking and how you’re feeling because they understand you on a deeper level.
If this has ever happened to you, then you’ve already met your twin soul. The essence of unconditional love is understanding the deep and complex parts of each other and staying together through thick and thin.
Whether your connection evolved into a romantic relationship or friendship, it really doesn’t matter. The most important thing is that your connection is built on trust, respect, devotion, and appreciation for each other.
If you’re lucky enough to have met your twin flame and that person becomes your partner, then you’ll know they’re the one for you. You won’t have to search for anyone else because you’ll feel fulfilled and satisfied for the first time in your life.
Furthermore, if you’re instead friends, then you’ll experience the beauty of an energetic and balanced platonic friendship.
Either way, you’ll never feel alone again and you’ll know that this person has your back no matter what. They’ll be the wind beneath your wings and they’ll push you to go after your dreams.
4. You keep bumping into each other
Does this person always enter your life when you least expect it? If the answer is yes, then you better believe that they’re your twin soul because that doesn’t happen accidentally.
The universe is telling you that they’re the other half of your soul, so you shouldn’t ignore it. It wants to bring you together in random ways and it won’t stop doing so until you decide to accept that person into your life.
I understand that it may be tough for you to believe in this but if you find other signs resonating with you, such as hearing the same song or wearing the same shirt, then you can be certain that the reason why you keep bumping into each other is that you’re twin souls.
5. You share many interests and hobbies
Another twin flame sign is when the two of you share many hobbies and interests. Perhaps you and your twin soul love to watch horror movies together, sing karaoke, or you’re both into spirituality.
For example, my twin soul and I share a passion for running. We enjoy going for morning runs and listening to the same music while exploring different routes.
The thing is you enjoy being in each other’s company and you’re always open to new ideas. That’s why you’ll feel liberated and strong enough to do things you never had the courage to do by yourself.
They inspire you to discover yourself in new ways and you’re not afraid to show your vulnerable side to them. By doing many things together, you’re actually strengthening your bond, and only by spending time together will you see how unique and amazing your connection is.
6. You have the same thoughts
This is one of the most intriguing and fascinating signs when it comes to a twin flame or soul connection.
You might have experienced this with another person and didn’t even realize that they were your other half. Perhaps you found out they were having the same thoughts as you, even though you were miles apart.
The beauty of the twin flame connection is that you’ll be able to sense when something’s not right in their life. You’ll be able to feel their pain, sorrow, or joy as if it’s happening to you there and then and you won’t be able to resist the urge to call them.
Many people mistake these thoughts and emotions for their own, thinking they can control them, but you can’t. It’s deeply rooted in your soul, which is why you’ll always know what your twin soul is going through at that time.
They won’t have to say a word and you’ll be aware that they’re in pain or that they’re hurting.
7. You experience a strong physical attraction
There’s a possibility that the connection you have with your twin flame evolves into a romance. If that’s the case, then you’ll undoubtedly experience a strong and intense physical attraction toward that person.
It’ll be unlike anything you ever imagined it to be and you won’t be able to resist your desire to be in each other’s presence. You’ll only think about spending as much time as possible together and cuddling will be your new hobby.
You’ll never get bored with your relationship and the emotions you’ll feel when you two are in the same place will be out of this world. As a result, your bond will get deeper and you’ll be more in touch with your true self.
That’s why it’s said that your twin flame can help you to get to know yourself better. They won’t judge you in any way and they’ll stay by your side whatever happens.
8. You reach for each other at the same time
By this, I don’t mean that you reach your hands toward the same door at the same moment, as it’s not as simple as that. But have you ever picked up your phone just to see the other person calling you the moment you unlocked it?
Maybe you wanted to share some big news with them but as you were dialing their number, their name popped up on your phone because they were calling you first.
This is quite unique and special when you’re dealing with a twin flame connection. You two share a bond that is deeper than the material world.
The other night, my twin flame and I got into a heated argument and we got angry at each other. The moment I stepped outside to go to their house to talk things through, I saw their car pulling up at my home.
My partner knew that we couldn’t stay mad at each other forever and wanted to apologize. How often does that happen?
This is a clear sign of a twin soul connection because how else would you be able to feel the turmoil inside each other?
9. You share similar flaws and weaknesses
I understand if it sounds weird that two people can share the same flaws and weaknesses but it’s true. That’s what also makes a twin flame connection so amazing and unique and when you think about it, you can actually benefit from this.
Basically, your twin soul can help you realize that there’s nothing you can’t achieve. They can teach you how to acknowledge and deal with your own weaknesses.
Also, it’ll be easier for you to overcome your insecurities and flaws so that both of you reach your full potential and become the best versions of yourself. A relationship like this will significantly increase your self-love and self-confidence.
Every day, they’ll push you to improve yourself and to become better and they’ll always be there to pick you up whenever you’re feeling insecure about yourself.
10. You have intense arguments and fights
You probably didn’t think that twin souls argue as their chakras are totally synched but that’s not true at all. Every relationship, even this one, will have arguments or fights about something, as they are a necessary part of your twin flame journey.
Keep in mind that a relationship like this will increase your level of confidence and you’ll feel happier and smarter when you’re with them. But you can’t achieve that without a bit of arguing.
I know it sounds strange but the more you argue with your twin flame, the more you’ll grow as a person and the stronger your bond will be.
Eventually, once the dust settles and when you least expect it, you’ll find yourself in a state of calmness. You’ll reach understanding and peace and that’s when your energy will be aligned again.
11. You’re both in touch with your true self
Are you one of those people who’s anxious or afraid when meeting someone new? If you are, then you don’t have to worry because this won’t happen when you meet your twin flame.
Why? Because they’ll do anything they can to help you relax and create a safe environment where you can express yourself freely.
In fact, they’ll motivate you to be your authentic self around them. For once, you’ll feel liberated and free to say whatever you want and they won’t judge you at all.
It’ll be like you’ve finally found your home where you no longer have to pretend to be someone you’re not just to be accepted by others. And this is exactly how I felt when I met my twin flame.
I was surprised as to how composed I was and how I didn’t overthink anything. I was thrilled to finally be who I am because they could understand the deepest and most complex parts of me.
12. You feel complete
Have you had the feeling as if something was missing from your life before you met this person? And when they finally came into your life, you experienced a blissful feeling of being complete?
If your answers are yes, then you’re lucky because you’ve already met your twin flame and the same thing happened to me.
At first, I didn’t know how to explain it. I thought that I had to work harder to earn more money in order to feel satisfied but now I understand that I was feeling incomplete because I hadn’t yet met my twin soul.
That person gave me a sense of belonging and now I’m in a wonderful relationship, feeling more complete than ever.
13. You feel an instant connection
Another one of the twin flame signs and symptoms is when you experience an instant connection with that person. This bond will be so powerful that it’ll turn your entire life upside down.
At first, you’ll probably think that everything is just a coincidence but as your connection grows stronger, you’ll start to finish each other’s sentences. You’ll be able to look into each other’s eyes and see what the other person is thinking without the need to say a word.
And the more time you spend together, the more your souls will be aligned. Eventually, it’ll be impossible for the both of you to spend a day without talking to each other.
14. You have a deep spiritual bond
Because you’re constantly pushing each other to be better and due to your spiritual growth and spiritual awakening, your spiritual connection will be out of this world. You’ll feel invincible because your deep bond can survive almost anything.
You won’t be afraid to lose them because you’ll know that your paths will cross again. And even if you can’t be physically close to each other, whenever you meet again, you’ll feel as if you were together all that time.
Distance means nothing to twin souls and they’re perfectly capable of maintaining a long-distance relationship. They know their soul is complete even if they’re miles apart.
15. Your connection feels divine and strong
Another twin flame sign and symptom is when you feel a divine energy going through every fiber in your body. The truth is a twin flame connection is one of the most powerful forces that you can experience in your life.
When your souls unite, you’ll feel stronger than ever before even though you’ve done nothing. The only thing that changes is how you feel about yourself as your energies become intertwined.
Some refer to this as Kundalini energy, which is stored at the base of the spine. It becomes free once you meet your twin soul, as it expands your state of consciousness.
16. You have the desire to grow together
The thing about twin flames is that they push you to chase after your dreams and evoke your inner desire to grow and be better with each day. They help you get rid of any toxicity that has corrupted your soul or mind and replaces it with positive energy and thoughts.
Your twin flame will motivate you to improve your health both physically and mentally and you’ll do the same thing for them.
The beauty of such a connection is that you’ll never get bored with each other. You’ll always discover new ways to get out of your comfort zone, which is essential for every twin soul relationship.
17. You have a strong desire to explore the world together
Another twin flame sign and symptom is when you have a strong desire to do certain things with that one person. It could be that you wish to quit your jobs and travel and explore the world together.
You know that they’re your twin soul when you can’t experience anything without telling them first. This doesn’t have to be something big, though, as it can just be a funny thing that happened to you at work or something you saw while you were walking home.
Whenever you have a choice to make, you’ll always ask yourself what would they do if they were in your shoes. That’s how significant they are to your life and you can’t imagine facing life’s obstacles without them.
18. They change your life completely
You know you won’t be able to confront your fears or find your true purpose without them. That’s when you realize that you’ve met your twin flame.
It’s like the universe gave them to you when you least expected it and they helped you get in touch with your true self. Sometimes you wonder how you could have ever lived without them.
19. You have the feeling that you’ve known each other for many lifetimes
One of the major twin flame signs and symptoms is when you feel like you’ve known this person for a long time and this is because you were looking for each other in previous lives as well. It’s just that the universe waited for the perfect moment to bring you two together and reunite your soul.
You’re not alone with this feeling at all. When that magical moment happens, your twin soul feels the same way, even if they may be afraid to admit it at first.
20. Your eyes light up or change color
A major twin flame symptom is the fact that when you lock eyes with theirs, you’ll feel as if your eyes are lightning up. As you spend more time together, this is usually accompanied by tingling in your feet or hands.
Sometimes, you may see light pouring through your twin flame’s eyes as you deeply stare into each other’s soul. Also, it could happen that you experience eye color changes in the presence of your twin soul.
