Why Twin Flames Meet Later in Life?

Why Twin Flames Meet Later in Life

We all have heard the term Soulmates. There are lots of definitions but essentially Soul mates are the people who are part of our soul tribe whom we have known from our previous lifetimes.

We can have more than one soul mate and they can come into our lives in any form, romantic relationships, platonic relationships, family or closest friends.

They come into our lives to awaken us, challenge us and help in fulfilling our soul lessons and soul contracts.

Soul mates are a beautiful part of our journey and help us in self-actualization and are important milestones in our journey towards meeting what many spiritualists refer to as “Twin Flames”.


You must be wondering Twin What?

What is A Twin Flame?

It is said that while we may have many soul mates. We have only one Twin Flame. Our Twin soul is said to have the exact same energetic frequency as ours and they are our divine counterpart.

The difference between meeting our Twin flame and soul mate can be distinctly felt. It is because the purpose of twin flame relationship is different from any other relationship. When Twins meet a process of awakening called Ascension is triggered where all the blocks and negativity that have been holding them back come up for clearing.

Our twin flames are like our perfect mirrors and complementary counterparts who reflect back to us all the areas where we need to work on ourselves.

Twin Flames come together to unite in the energy of unconditional love and serve a purpose higher than themselves. Their sheer magical connection and vibration of unconditional love has the power to uplift and inspire others.


Signs of a Twin Flame Relationship

You have an extremely telepathic and psychic connection

Since you and your twin flame share the same energetic frequency, it is no wonder you would share an extremely telepathic and psychic connection with them.

Even if you are miles apart you would be able to feel connected to them and no matter how much time has elapsed between your meetings, you would always pick up from where you left.


You evolve into a higher version of yourself

The whole purpose of Twin Flame relationship is to awaken you to the reality of who you really are. They will mirror back to you all your self-limiting beliefs and make you question your entire worldview that is not serving your highest good.

Their purpose is to enable you to expand into the type of person who can embody divine unconditional love first for yourself and then for the whole of humanity.


You feel an insanely magnetic pull towards each other

Even though you and your twin flame might have different personalities – underneath all the traits and behavior patterns, you two share the same energetic frequency.
This is the reason the kind of pull and attraction you will feel for them will be unlike you have felt for anyone before.


Your relationship helps you uncover your soul purpose

Your relationship with a twin flame will trigger you to uncover your soul purpose.
They will rip apart all the facades, excuses, deepest fears or addictions that you have been carrying consciously or unconsciously that have kept you from becoming who you are really meant to be.
They will trigger you to look deep within and uncover your soul purpose.


Why do Twin Flames meet later in life?

Twin Flames are not the typical romance fairy tales that we have been fed since childhood and to expect that they will follow the traditional paradigms of relationships where we can plan and set timelines and milestones for dating and courting would be futile.

However, there are a lot of reasons that suggest that Twin Flames meet later in their lives:


1). Twin Flame relationships are a path to Enlightenment and serve a higher purpose

Your Twin Flame will be your biggest catalyst on the enlightenment journey.

“Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” – Adyashanti

This type of love is not easy because they will shine a spotlight on all the facades, fears and excuses that keep you from becoming who you really are. You will have to level up in every way because a tiny cup of ego can’t hold an ocean of the unconditional love that twin flame relationship brings.

Therefore twin flames plan their meetings later in life when their souls are mature enough to embark on the awakening journey together.


2). Twin Flames relationships happen between advanced souls who have done the growth work

Before twin flames come together in union, they work on their soul lessons and soul contracts. Each twin flame might have to be in various other soul mates and karmic relationships to fulfill soul contracts and learn soul lessons before they can meet each other.

Twin flame relationships manifest only between advanced souls who have mastered their soul lessons and who can hold the frequency of unconditional love.

They meet later in life because it takes a lot of years and life experience for them to uncover their soul gifts and share them with the world.


3). Masculine and feminine energies balance

There is no place for codependency or manipulation in the twin flame relationship which embodies the highest frequency of unconditional love.

When we grow spiritually and emotionally, we balance our inner masculine and feminine energies. When we are balanced within, we will attract a counterpart that is balanced too.
And therefore twin flame meetings will happen only after we have done enough work on ourselves to balance our yin and yang.


4). They are here to embody unconditional love and do not follow typical relationship paradigm

Twin flames do not follow a typical relationship paradigm. They might meet really early in life and then separate and come together later in life after many years. Or they might be together all the time and not realize they are twin flames until they have done the soul work or they might meet really later in life after learning their soul lessons.

Do not worry about the other person or timing of your meeting – just continue to be the wild, divine, unconditional love that you are and focus on being your highest possible version and they will meet you when they are meant to under the divine plan.

You and your twin soul carry a unique energetic signature; therefore follow your inner guidance and heart to lead you on this journey.
