In the "early days" of my journey, I searched out connections that would enable me to get lost in another and forget myself for a while. Then, when I found my true twin soul, I realized I could never have experienced and lived this love without strengthening my connection with my Self—first. 

This is why I believe in this journey and try to help people through what I've experienced and learned. It has completely changed the relationship I have with myself and others in my life. 

Until I found my onethe one in whom I can now clearly see myselfI had what I refer to as four "near" Twin relationships and instances. Almost all bore the twin soul symptoms and signs you read about online. Consequently, I think it's extremely difficult for people to "see" their twin soul before coming to know themselves. In reality, no matter how strongly my chakras tingled or how often I'd been re-assured by psychics, I used to project rather than recognize my true twin soul partner. 

The twin soul/flame really is about being in tune to you: your vibration, your sacred inner place, and your divine masculine and feminine energies. That's what makes it different from other relationships and why most authentic twin souls first meet in a form of meditation or dreams...

"...the dream lover is an image that never really goes away, or, at least, not too far away…this image often remains in our subconscious, the unconscious mind, which is why we don't normally connect our attractions to it. All our attractions, to varying degrees, give us the opportunity to see different aspects of ourselves in other people, but it is through our most powerful pulls that we get glimpses of our eternal image—of that very intimate part of ourselves. In other words, your dream lover-your eternal image—is really a part of you. You can recognize it in another person. It's what makes another compatible to you. However, the foundation of that image—its root—is in your psyche." The Power of Twin Soul Love (Book I)

The one who assists us to evolve and grow within the context of ourselves is, for all intent and purposes, our true twin soul. This special soul could be our "outer counterpart," the person we perceive to be our twin flame, or it could be our Divine counterpart "in spirit" who can be visualized through meditation, active imagination, journaling, painting, drawing, or dream work.
