osiris and isis journey of twin flames

The term Twin Flames is deeply rooted in esoteric and New Age spirituality. It is a concept that continues to captivate many on their journey toward personal growth and understanding. The origins of the term extends back to ancient myths and philosophies but found its modern form and widespread popularity through the New Age movement in the 20th century.

The reason why I decided to blog about twin flames today, as well as create a brand new twin flames Tarot spread is that I had a dream about twins last night. It was not a romantic dream but it was, nevertheless, a dream that made me want to revisit the concept. It is, I might add, a concept that I have chosen to retain a healthy scepticism about.

The reason for my scepticism is that not only did quest for my twin flame in my younger years derail me from my true path–I have witnessed this happen to countless clients who obsess endlessly about uniting with a ‘runner’ twin flame while everything else in their lives falls apart. I have also seen many of my clients cling to abusive relationships by using the twin flame or soul mate connection as an excuse. It’s frustrating when I see clearly and the Tarot confirms that it’s simply a delusion and the relationship is straight up toxic.

Historical Origins

Historically, the concept of twin flames harkens back to the writings of Plato. In his work, The Symposium, Plato presents a theory that originally humans were androgynous beings with four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces. According to the story, Zeus split these beings in half, creating two separate entities yearning to reunite with their other half.

While many in the modern spiritual movement seem to accept Plato’s theory as fact, I think it is wise to view it as a theory unless it resonates on a deep soul level. I, for one, choose to remain open to the possibility that while some beings may incarnate on Earth as the half of a whole, many of us do not. Or if we do, it is simply not a relevant theme for each and every incarnation.

Modern Interpretation in New Age Spirituality

In New Age thought, twin flames are two halves of the same soul, split into two separate physical bodies. Unlike soulmates, who are two different souls from the same soul family, twin flames are mirror souls. The idea is that these two souls are destined to reunite through various lifetimes to achieve ultimate balance and enlightenment.

Common Understandings in New Age Practices:

  1. Purpose: Twin flames come together as a catalyst for mutual spiritual growth and awakening. They help each other face the challenges of life, prompting each to spiritually evolve.
  2. Stages of the Twin Flame Journey: The path to finding and harmonising with one’s twin flame can be arduous and consists of several stages:
    • Recognition and Temporary Spiritual Awakening: Recognising one another on a profound, soulful level, which is often accompanied by a significant spiritual awakening.
    • Testing: Challenges that test the strength and endurance of the connection.
    • Crisis: Significant crises that provide opportunities for growth.
    • Runner Dynamic: One twin may distance themselves emotionally and physically.
    • Surrender: Both individuals release their egos, allowing their spiritual bond to mature.
    • Radiance and Harmonising: The twin flames come into full alignment, experiencing peace and radiance.
  3. Intensity and Difficulties: The twin flame relationship is not exclusively about romance but often involves intense experiences meant to foster spiritual development. These relationships can be challenging and full of emotional highs and lows.
  4. Final Reunion and Harmony: The ultimate goal of the twin flame journey is to reach a harmonious reunion where both individuals experience balance and unity, achieving a higher state of consciousness.

In conclusion, the concept of twin flames within the New Age paradigm presents a dynamic and spiritually enriching journey. It emphasises the profound impact of unconditional love and spiritual development, promising a reunion of souls through adversity and enlightenment.
