Soul Connections as Mirrors of Our Self-Love
What if I told you that the one you are longing for is within you? That the One you have been waiting for has always been there, waiting for you to awaken to His presence?
I don’t want this to be another Twin Flame article telling you to just love yourself and send love and light. I am not writing this to paint hearts and roses and speak of eternal love.
There is a time for roses. And there is always a time for eternal love, a love that is beyond words or comprehension, a love that transforms the future and the past.
But what I am talking about emerged out of six years of healing and struggle through horrific templates of wars, oppression, sexual abuse, death, suicide, the collapsed masculine and the desecrated feminine, the collective notions of romantic love that had to be shattered, the loss of possessions, homes, security and the pain and terror of being on a journey with no road map and no guidance — for most of those years.
Twin Flames and deep soul connections are a dance of divine opposites. The universe itself is a constant dance of masculine and feminine, separation and union, longing and completion. The inherent paradox of that is the driving force of all creation. The Universe is making love to itself every second through the divine flow of opposites. We live in a world of separation — and yet the Union can never be broken.
There is a higher level where both are true at the same time.
There is a higher level where the Opposites are One.
This is what the Twin Flame journey is ultimately all about, going from an either/or perspective to both/and, realizing that what can be seen with a naked eye is not the full story, while at the same time acknowledging that the universe is holographic, that the separation and loneliness that exists on the outer planes is somehow a reflection of separation within me, of the separation of me from those parts of myself that I have not yet acknowledged and fully loved.
Every deep soul connection is a reflection of all the parts of me that I have not yet loved and acknowledged within myself.
Sometimes, connecting with these parts means embracing and loving them. Sometimes it means journeying into the shadow, into the abysmal darkness and summoning the courage to face the aspects and the archetypes within me that have been pushed outside conscious awareness. It’s not all love and light on this journey. We will never embrace the true light of it until we descend into hell of separation, unworthiness, sexual shadow, loneliness, revenge, hatred, and all misery imaginable.
As scary and “un-spiritual” as this sounds, no initiation is possible without connecting with the shadow. And Twin Flame journey is first and foremost exactly this — a path of initiation. Initiation into all-encompassing mysteries of the Universe.
And it is our Twin that shows us the Shadow. Sometimes, quite literally, through their own “unenlightened” behavior. Sometimes through triggering us into behaving and thinking in ways we thought we never could. Sometimes, as often happens in Separation, through exposing us to the abysmal loneliness and neediness we never knew existed within our hearts.
But we are not called to stay wallowing in the dark forever.
I can assure you from my own journey, that once we have faced the deepest despair of Hell, once we have truly faced it and dared to call out to Love even in the darkest abyss, this Hell loses its power. The joy of Union within transforms even the worst agony of the past into glory.
There are no dragons to fight, and no Maidens to rescue, because the Maiden is the Dragon. Once we see that, we step into our power.
We look back onto things that caused such horrific pain, and, quite literally, see them as blessings. The moments of humiliation, once the eyes of our souls become opened, turn into moments of greatest honor, as time and space warp and transform all, even the past.
The key? Recognize that whatever is happening in your soul connection is a mirror of all the places you do not yet love within yourself.
And as you let this sink in, the Work begins. Let us completely release any expectation of a result, and embark on the beautiful and miraculous journey of uniting the Masculine and the Feminine within.
