  • The Truth About Twin Flames

    TWIN FLAME is thrown around so much in the spiritual community, but what does it really mean?

    Everyone who I’ve seen declare that they’re with their twin flame has since broken up, and this is not uncommon for twin flames. The others who are in happy long-term relationships are probably misusing the term twin flame when they actually mean soulmate.

    These are very different roles and you probably have soulmates who are not just romantic partners, but dear friends and members of your family.

    First, we need to understand what a twin flame is, and then it becomes clearer what their role is in our life if we ever meet them…

    A twin flame is thought to be the other half of a soul. This means that a soul would be splitting and entering two bodies, so if the twin flames ever meet, it will be an intense connection where the highs are so high because you feel like you’re the same person.

    However, the lows are also so low because you have the exact same shadows which are repelling each other like the same side of two magnets.

    You will find that a soulmate is a loving and fun connection, whereas a twin flame is here to make you wake TF up!

    As the other side of your soul, they are the divine masculine opposite to your divine feminine or vice versa. By romanticizing it, you’re giving it a human experience when really it’s a union that has come together for your spiritual advancement.

    As I wrote in How To Know If You Have A Past Life Connection With Someone, you might find that if you meet a twin flame there’ll be instant recognition and an undeniable sense that you have known each other for a very, VERY long time.

    This split soul connection will allow for easy telepathy and you’ll probably have a strong sense of clairempathy when it comes to this person, for example, you can feel what they’re feeling even if they’re in another country.

    Of course, you will be very similar – and in many ways, you’ll probably find that you’re a good match because you’re freakily identical in some aspects. This can feel intoxicating, but being inebriated isn’t always a good thing. Intense relationships are rarely destined to last and the flame between twin souls will often burn out.

    The intensity is a challenge to overcome so that you can stand your ground as an individual, and they’re showing you all of the aspects of yourself in human form that you’re meant to work on in this lifetime.

    Rather than completing you, they’re a reminder of your strength. During your time on this Earth, you’re not meant to cling to and rely on another person – so the challenge being presented is to connect with your own sovereignty to find your own divinity and creation power.

    By breaking your heart they may be activating you so that you realise you’re strong and powerful on your own. Or alternatively, they may reject any advances for a romantic union because it’s distracting you from that, so they may be tricky to get into a relationship at all.

    By helping you to ascend to true enlightenment which is a state of non-attachment, they might avoid attachment with you at all costs. They’ll probably be in your life for only a short time and it’s very unlikely that they’ll be lifelong partners.

    Not everyone has a twin flame so it’s not that common; it’s actually very rare for people to be true twin flames. The people who have them are meant to see them as a human mirror for certain parts of themselves.

    The twin flame is activating latent energies within you which can add to the intensity of the experience and make it incredibly addictive and emotionally intense, because the awakening that they create within you is profound and life altering.

    However they transform you, you can guarantee that after meeting them you’ll be transformed in some way. Did they break you? Good. And did they make you turn to a spiritual path that you’ve been on ever since? Their job is done.

  • How To Know If You Have A Past Life Connection With Someone

    If you believe that we live many times over – in different lifetimes with different bodies – then you probably feel like you’ve met people again in this life who you’ve known before.

    Our soul holds energetic memories from different times and realities, but we experience amnesia when we are born into a new body. In the same way that we can’t remember things from when we were young children, we also don’t remember things from our past lives. We’re blocked from those memories so that they don’t take our attention away from the path that we need to walk and the lessons that we need to learn in this lifetime.

     

     

    However, many people have still accessed information from their past lives. For example, in my most recent life, I was a 17-year-old Vietnamese boy soldier in the Vietnam War. I abandoned my troop because they wouldn’t listen to my intuitive knowledge that our plan was going to fail; I ran away on my own, I was right, and they were all killed while I survived.

    After telling this to my friend Rachel Alyce, she said that she’d also been in the Vietnam War in her last life too. Even if you don’t have this kind of evidence and you’ve never had a past life reading, there are multiple ways to know if you’ve had a past life connection with someone.

    If there’s someone in mind that you’re wondering about, do any of these resonate?


    ⋆☽  You’re instantly, inexplicably drawn to them…  ☾⋆


    Have you ever felt so strongly drawn to someone, but you can’t quite put your finger on why?

    This is different from attraction in the usual sense, because it’s usually not romantically motivated. There is just something intriguing and captivating about them that pulls you in. It’s not what happens with every other person that you meet…

    It’s a feeling of deep soul recognition that’s hard to put a name on because of that amnesia I talked about, but there’s a magnetism there; the recognition of this person meaning more to you than the stranger that they are when they first present themselves to you.

    If you have gone through lifetimes with them before, then it’s likely that they will have an important role when you meet them again. That’s why you’re drawn towards them – because you’re meant to meet them at this point on your journey!


    ⋆☽  You quickly get back into it…  ☾⋆


    Within hours or days, chatting with them just feels like catching up with an old friend. You can skip the niceties and show yourself to them fully far quicker than you would with anyone else.

    The normal period of time that it might take for you to become acquainted with someone dramatically shortens, and you can hop into a closely knit relationship far quicker than you do with most people that you meet.

    It’s almost like you’re stepping back into a relationship with them, rather than starting a new one.


    ⋆☽  There’s a strong sense of familiarity…  ☾⋆


    You already know things about them, and you can sense inherent parts of their personality.

    There’s a level of knowingness between you and a distinct feeling of soul resonance.

    The strongest way to know if you have had a past life connection with them is because you feel like you have known them before.


    ⋆☽  There may be anger & frustrations far beyond what can be explained in this lifetime…  ☾⋆


    As well as feeling like you have known them before, you may also feel like there’s an invisible hatchet that can’t be buried for some reason.

    There’s something that either one or both of you will not let go of, but it can’t necessarily be explained by what’s happened in this lifetime. Maybe your relationship in this life has been quite good but there’s a simmering layer of resentment there, like a grudge which one or both of you can’t let go of.

    This could be caused by a trauma that you had together in a past life which was far more dramatic than anything which has happened this time around, like them stealing your lover or even murdering you!

    When this is the case, you have been brought back together in this lifetime to try to resolve that trauma and close the karmic pattern of anger by showing each other forgiveness.


    ⋆☽  Or maybe, you can see synastry in your birth charts…  ☾⋆


    If you want to look further into your past life connection with someone, a good astrologer might be able to do this for you.

    It’s often the South Node in your chart/s which is the indicator of a past life connection, however, as with anything astrology related, there is so much more to it. As well as finding out if you’ve had a past life connection together, you might also be able to see what kind of connection it was, such as teacher-student, friendship, or parent-child.

    If you’ve just met someone and immediately you want to see their birth chart for this reason, then there’s no doubt about it: you have a past life connection!

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    As with everything, the most important tool that you have for discerning whether someone featured in one of your old lives is your intuition! You can feel that sense of connection and how it surpasses all of the other people that you meet on a daily basis.

    If you want to look into this further, then you can go for astrology synastry and past life readings, but these are obviously coming from other people – and YOU are the person who was in the relationship before…

    So, ask yourself: how do they make you feel?

    What seems different about the relationship that you have?

    And is there a deeper layer of connection there which can’t be explained in this lifetime?

  • Why Some People Won’t Have A Spiritual Awakening

    Isn’t it annoying when our friends and family won’t awaken with us?

    From conversations with my clients and spiritual friends, this is the worst part about going through an awakening: the loneliness.

    Feeling like you’re weird and strange.

    Not being able to connect with people in your life in the same way that you did before.

    This is only going to make us wish that they could come along for the ride with us, especially as we unwrap our gifts, connect with the Universe, and realise the full power that we have to create our own reality.

    “Why can’t they see this too?”

    Well, maybe they’re not meant to right now…

    We all have different times for our awakening to start unfolding, and they are all as Divine as each other! I believe that there’s reasons why some people won’t spiritually awaken in this lifetime, and I’m going to share these with you.

    Hopefully they’ll help you to see that it’s perfect; it’s Divine; it’s necessary for some people not to awaken. The only thing we can do in this situation is not to control them – but to work on our own acceptance of the new situation we find ourselves in.

    It’s not our job to try and “fix” someone who we hope will awaken. It’s not for us to decide when their time is. They have to find the light when they’re ready to turn it on.

    Here’s why it might not happen in this lifetime 🔮👇🏿


    ⋆☽ They don’t want to… ☾⋆


    A lot of people might have the potential to awaken, but they have so much resistance.

    Often this is an energetic issue where their Crown Chakra is closed, or so blocked by judgements that they lack a tangible connection to the Divine. When they lack that connection, they don’t feel as though they have any physical proof that anything else exists apart from our 1) physical bodies, 2) life and 3) death.

    These people need evidence, and as spiritual people we already get a lot of that through signs, synchronicities, manifestations, card readings, etc…

    But for someone who has never experienced any of that – or has never noticed any of that – it could be very hard to believe that there’s some truth in spirituality.

    They also might not want to because of past life trauma…

    Who else here feels like they were a witch in a past life? 🙋🏼‍♀️

    giphy

    I strongly feel this way, and I actually believe that me, my mother and my sister were all witches together in lifetimes before. With these “witch wounds” comes a huge amount of fear about sharing our psychic gifts and being open about our spirituality.

    We have so much fear of being persecuted because we literally were! And even today, we probably still will be by a lot of people.

    These past life traumas were so intense that they still threaten our sense of security today. For some people, it’ll be so bad that they will not risk awakening in this lifetime.

    It’s a similar story for people who have been brought up in strong religious traditions…

    Or in any kind of belief system which would put them off awakening so badly in this lifetime because those beliefs are entrenched, and are what they have chosen to stick by.

    For the same reason that we won’t change any beliefs, the benefits for these groups of people don’t outweigh the costs of being a spiritual person in today’s society.

    If they don’t feel safe and the fears are too strong, they won’t be in a state of allowing and believing in the magic of the Universe like we understand it.


    ⋆☽ They’re not ready… ☾⋆


    Other people will awaken in this lifetime, but just… not yet.

    It’s for no-one to say when they’ll awaken, as that’s up to their soul and the big-U for when their awakening is due. It’s written into their life plan somewhere, but we just can’t see when it will be.

    Some people awaken from a sudden, tragic life event. Some people awaken through the people they meet and the places they end up. Some people awaken through a magical metaphysical experience.

    You just have to be patient with these people.

    You may not still know them when they awaken, but, if you do, you’ll be the first person they come to for advice, and you can be their support because you know what it’s like to awaken and feel alone.

    Awakenings can’t be forced and it’s not for us to decide when someone else’s is going to happen. We can just be grateful when it finally does!


    ⋆☽ Their path is to help others awaken… ☾⋆


    … without awakening themselves.

    This is the heaviest one, because, as I said before, some people awaken through tragic and sudden life events. For me, I don’t think I’d be in spirituality if I hadn’t moved in with my alcoholic stepfather at age 13. He’s at end-stage alcoholism now, so it’s incredibly unlikely that he will awaken in this lifetime.

    However, if his soul had not made that sacrifice then I probably wouldn’t be here now making it my life’s work to teach about spirituality and help many others through their awakening (and then helping them to set up spiritual businesses which will help many others through their spiritual awakenings!)

    I also think this about psychopathic killers and people who we see as “evil” who have a huge impact on the world. We only see and talk about the negative impact, but the positive impact which comes afterwards isn’t publicised.

    Through every tragic event there are people who find each other, set up new charities and businesses, and make it their life’s mission to stop the same thing happening again. Some souls make sacrifices to help to get others on their right path.

    There is good in every situation and it is these souls who help us to see it through it through the contrast that they provide.

    It’s like a soul sacrifice that they made when they came here to Earth, and even if they don’t awaken – and seem like they’re so far from ever awakening and having empathy – their soul still contributes to the network of awakened souls that is illuminating the whole globe.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Our job isn’t to make unwilling people awaken – it’s to help the ones who are.

    In the spiritual community, we can reach out and help others rise up who are discovering the secrets of the Universe for the first time and feeling isolated by their new gifts and realisations.

    It is not our job to force anyone to do anything that they don’t want to do. That would only push people further away and would be coming from a place of our own scarcity!

    By shining brightly and being our best spiritual selves, we will gradually inspire others to do the same.

    When someone won’t awaken, the best thing we can do is to live our lives as an example.

    Their time will come when they are ready.

  • 6 Signs That You Have Empathic Overload

    [This article was published in the May 2020 issue of Soul & Spirit magazine]


    Liz Roberta, a Spiritual Coach who writes the Millennial Manifestor blog, helps you protect & connect with your intuition by avoiding overwhelm…

    If you’re an empath, you have been given a gift. Your sensitivity can be a wonderful tool for connecting people with the light, but it can be hard to spot when you’re gradually becoming burdened with other people’s emotions.

    To know if this is happening to you, check to see if you’re feeling any of these 6 symptoms…

    Gatekeeper Blog copy

    Have you been struggling to connect with your intuition and psychic abilities recently?

    If so, it could be a sign that other people’s emotional energy is clouding your spiritual sight. Staying in a high energetic vibration is so important for maintaining a clear psychic connection; carrying other people’s dark energy in your aura acts like a thick fog on your intuitive highway to the Divine.

    Keep your spiritual gifts active and finely tuned by having strong energetic boundaries, because often people struggling for Divine connection will unknowingly attach to your energy and use it as a conduit.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (1)

    Want to hide away and spend more time by yourself than usual?

    Retreating into hermit mode can feel tempting when your soul is tired from carrying the extra weight of other people’s emotions, so watch out for withdrawal as a sign that you need to check in with your boundaries.

    By noticing what friendships and relationships are weighing you down, you can start to limit the time that you spend with these people. At any moment, you can say to the Angels in your mind: “Wrap your loving wings around me and help me to feel my own emotions.”

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (2)

    Are you prone to aches, pains and irritating illnesses?

    If you’re someone who always has a cough or cold, for example, then it could be a warning sign that you’re letting in too much energy which isn’t your own. Over time, this low vibration energy can build up until it manifests as a blockage in one of your chakras and causes you to become ill.

    The most commonly affected chakra is the throat, when empaths don’t say what needs to be said for fear of hurting someone’s feelings or harming a relationship. Your body will lovingly give you warnings to tell you that you’re energetically overloaded.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (3)

    Have you been taking longer than usual to decide because you’re struggling to pick a direction?

    giphy-1

    Confusion is to be expected when you have empathic overload! Picking up on everyone else’s energies can be bewildering for your intuition and mean that you’re prioritising other people’s emotions ahead of your own.

    Doing what’s right for you can be hard as an empath if it means giving someone else less than the best, but you need to be the master of your own fate. With better boundaries in place, the cloudy path to what you really want will become clearer.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (4)

    Have you been feeling low, worried and anxious?

    When the emotions we’ve collected don’t know which way to go, they can manifest in a way that will force us to stop and name them. It’s normal to experience more negative emotions than usual when you have empathic overload, but, while feeling other people’s stress is a sign of your compassion – it isn’t particularly productive.

    Ground your energy and refocus any thoughts which are making you feel unstable or unsupported.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (8)

    With these feelings of confusion and anxiety, it’s harder to maintain the high energetic vibration that you need for easy manifesting!

    If you’re finding it more difficult than usual to attract what you want, or you’re attracting results which are slightly “off” from what you’ve been asking for, the Law of Attraction could be telling you something.

    Keeping your energy light and free from other people’s burdens will ensure that you’re a magnet for abundance!

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    So, do these signs sound true for you?

    If you’re experiencing 3 or more of them at the same time, then it’s likely that you’re becoming overwhelmed by your Divine gift of sensitivity.

    Remember to cleanse your energy body regularly and keep your boundaries strong; your energy is your best tool for making an impact!

    Make Your Energy Your Own Again!

    When you don’t know how to let go of what’s not yours, ask the Angelic realm for assistance. They can see what you are carrying and will lighten the load.

    Ask Archangel Michael to set you free with this simple request, repeated out loud or in your mind as you sit quietly in meditation: “Archangel Michael, please cut the cords connecting me to any energy which doesn’t serve me. Lift the load so that I can raise my vibration and shine brightly again.”
