Have you ever felt an inexplicable intense connection with a person? What you might have experienced is the concept of twin flames, and you didn’t even know it.
If you think you’ve missed your shot, don’t worry – the Universe might be setting you up for a twin flame reunion, but first, you need to know what exactly twin flames are, how they differ from soulmates, and what signs you should look out for.
What is a twin flame?
A twin flame, also known as a “mirror spirit,” is an intense soul bond with another person that is often considered to be a person’s other half. It’s based on the concept that one soul will break into two bodies at times, and is followed by overwhelming yearning. This relationship encourages you to connect with the divine, change your consciousness and worldview, and develop as a more soulful being. Twin flames can be romantic partners, friends, or it can just be a mentor-student relationship but the relationship itself is so intense unlike any other. In order to know that you’re about to meet your twin flame, there are certain signs a twin flame reunion is near.
Twin flame in Greek mythology
Plato explains the concept of twin souls in his seminal work ‘Symposium.’ In Greek mythology, humans were considered to have been originally formed with four arms, four legs, and a head with two ears. Fearing their strength, Zeus separated them into two halves, sending them on a lifelong quest to find their other halves. These types of souls are believed to have paths destined to cross, and when one of them encounters the other half, the real half of himself, the two share passion, friendship, and intimacy, and are ready to be an active presence in each other’s lives.
Some Chinese beliefs support the concept of the twin soul or joined soul. The idea of the “red thread” or “red string of fate” states that there is a red string woven by destiny that is bound to both twin flames. This string is said to connect these two souls, acting as a reference and ephemeral tether, ensuring that they can meet no matter what happens.
What is the difference between a soulmate and a twin flame?
Before going out and looking for signs a twin flame reunion is near, it’s important not to mix up the meanings of twin flames and soulmates. Soulmates and twin flames might sound like similar concepts, but they are two very different types of relationships. The key distinction is that twin flames are two halves of one whole, and soulmates are simply two separate souls that are spiritually linked. There are other differences between soulmates and twin flames, such as:
- You can have many soulmates in your life, it doesn’t have to necessarily be just one
- The relationships can take various forms — some are better than others, but none can put you through a particularly dark or challenging period
- Not inherently a long-term relationship or a predestined life partner
- You can be a person’s soulmate, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they are your soulmate
- You have only one twin flame and the relationship is mutual; you are also the other person’s twin flame
- Twin flames share the same energy levels but not the same frequency
- There may be a deep past life bond between you and your partner, and if you’re really advanced, it may feel as if it’s both of your last lives on this planet
- If you’ve already met your twin flame but your paths had not crossed the right way, the universe sends out signs your twin flame reunion is coming back
DID YOU KNOW: Wakefield Research found that 76% of people believe in soulmates, with millennials leading the way at 84%. Nearly two in three people feel soulmates are a reality rather than just a fantasy.
Signs of a twin flame reunion approaching
You may have already met your twin flame in the past, but you weren’t ready to be in each other’s lives at the time. However, many people believe that you are destined to cross paths again at some stage in your life and experience your twin flame reunion. As this moment approaches, your mind and body sense it, and your soul and your twin flame’s soul begin to resonate on a deeper level. These are some of the telling signs:
You feel as if a part of you is missing
The first of the twin flame reunion signs that you’re about to reunite with your previously experienced twin flame is an intense feeling of incompletion. You will never start thinking about trying to fill the emptiness if you don’t first feel empty, so the feeling of the “missing piece” is crucial to your journey.
Many have expressed that when you meet your twin, you get an overwhelming sense of wholeness, and there’s nothing that quite matches up to that feeling. Coming home to your mirror soul is an unmatched feeling of unconditional love.
You feel your twin flame’s energy nearby
When it comes to twin flames and attraction, it is said that you can feel the other’s energy, as if there’s electricity in the air. Even before twin flames touch, their souls share an energy bond.
No matter if you’re in the same room or on different continents, you and your twin flame end up feeling each other’s emotions, ideas, and personal levels of energy.
You can interact with them on a deeper level
The interaction between you and your twin flame feels like it goes beyond the physical world. This usually starts with twin flame dreams, which can expand into daydreaming and even during meditation. This is one of the most vivid signs a twin flame reunion is near. This intense connection may feel spiritual on an astral level, and by attracting them into this astral realm, you will be able to manifest them in the physical world.
Many twin flames actually dream the same dreams and have the same experiences in those dreams. After waking up, they can feel fulfilled and positive, like the dream was in fact reality.
You feel excited but at the same time peaceful
This is a very odd sensation, but it’s also the most telling sign that you are near your twin flame. Sudden bursts of happiness and giddiness seem to shoot through your heart and appear out of nowhere. Yet it’s a feeling followed by calmness and certainty, instead of anxiety. Your enthusiasm grows as your vibrations begin to match those of your twin flame and as your souls prepare you for your reunion. At the same time, your soul makes you feel at ease, and you no longer feel emptiness.
DID YOU KNOW: Many turn to synastry (also known as relationship astrology) to further find out if the person really is their twin flame. More specifically, many look up the best marriage aspects in synastry and try to connect that information with what they already know, and go beyond the physical realm.
You constantly see 11:11 and other significant symbols
When a twin flame reunion is approaching, your mind will start cooperating with the world and your soul to show you subtle signs that big changes are on the way. You may have noticed that you’ve recently started seeing 11:11 on your clocks and watches, as well as on street signs and internet posts. 11:11 is known as the Awakening Code or the Twin Flame Code. This is the symbol for new beginnings and it means that you’re ready for a twin flame reunion. Some of the other significant symbols include encountering pairs of animals such as two cats, a pair of dogs, etc.
Numbers such as 11:11, 22:22, etc. are commonly known as angel numbers. Angel numbers are number combinations with specific numerological meanings that are believed to provide guidance. If you’re not sure what a certain number you’ve been seeing means, getting a psychic reading could help you figure it out.

Your biorhythms reveal it
Examining your biorhythms is the most scientific way to determine if a twin flame reunion is imminent. Biorhythms are believed to be inherent mathematical cycles that can help us predict when significant events in our lives will occur. The best thing about biorhythms is that they are scientifically proven. So if you’re looking for a valid clue that your twin flame is near, this might just be it.
DID YOU KNOW: Biorhythms aren’t limited to determining when twin flames are near. Biorhythms date back to ancient Greece, where physicians like Hippocrates taught his students about good and bad days, as well as how to make the most of them.
You feel drawn to a place or feel a sudden need to try out something new
Your soul and their soul may be on the verge of merging, but you may have to go out of your way to make it happen. That is why you might be drawn to a specific place or feel the urge to do something you usually don’t do. For example, you can have a strange urge to join a new gym, go to a different coffee shop, or just take a new route to work.
When it’s time for twin flames to reunite, the Universe starts to move people, things, and circumstances in order for you to meet your twin flame. That is why this sudden urge to go to a specific place might feel like it was destined to happen.
You feel enthusiastic and ready
You’ll start to anticipate something almost out of nowhere, but you’re not sure what it is. Some have said to experience panic attack-like symptoms such as palpitations, sweaty palms, and anxiety but not in a bad way, rather like an overwhelming positive inexplicable excitement. This happens because your soul understands that the time has come and a divine twin flame reunion is near.
DID YOU KNOW: Divine timing refers to what happens when your energy perfectly aligns with your twin flame’s energy. Divine timing means that all the circumstances align themselves for the ultimate reunion.
You can’t understand your new feelings
Uncommon convictions and emotions rise to the surface as the reconciliation comes closer. Two major things happen when you reunite with your twin flame: first, your entire being begins to open itself so as to fully soul bond with your twin flame. Second, your twin flame’s own convictions and feelings start to manifest through you. Soul bonding is an absolute and complete experience and part of the purpose of a twin flame reunion.
Not understanding your feelings is also a sign of being in a karmic relationship, which is quite the opposite of what twin flames represent. If you are already in a relationship and start experiencing ups and downs in your feelings, then your partner is not your twin flame.
You have a feeling of completion
You suddenly don’t feel the need to pursue external validation. The issues you were concerned about yesterday are still there, but you feel completely safe in your position in the world as if the universe itself told you that you are exactly where you should be.
DID YOU KNOW: Many turn to the meaning of their and their partner’s life path numbers in order to understand a bit more about the nature of their relationship.
A twin flame is an intense connection that is regarded as a person’s other half. It’s based on the idea that one soul will split into two bodies at times, and it’s not to be confused with soulmates. Although we can have several soulmates, we can only have one twin flame. You may have met your twin flame before, but you were not yet able to be in each other’s lives. However, you were destined to run into each other again at some point in your life and have a divine twin flame reunion.
Until you meet your twin flame, you will feel like something is missing. Only when you and your twin flame are on the same vibrational level and able to reunite, can you actually be reunited and feel like you found a missing part of you. It can take days, weeks, or even years, depending on the situation.
Everyone has a twin flame, but not everyone will meet them. Keep in mind that the twin flame is a very rare phenomenon, and not everyone knows that it exists.
A twin flame reunion does not occur in every soul’s lifetime, but it does occur at critical points in a soul’s evolution that contribute to the eventual completion of that soul’s spiritual journey and the reconciliation of the two halves.
