How does one recognize their soul mate or twin soul? Let me give you an example. A friend of mine is married to a woman he loves. They have teenage children. Another woman that he has been friends with for a long time has asked him to "come home" to her because they are twin souls. The man is torn between his "spiritual love" and his "physical love". He feels he belongs with his twin soul -- yet he is not ready to leave his wife and children for her. He once pondered, "What if she is not really my twin soul?"
Well...what if his wife is his twin soul? In my experience, one will recognize their twin soul, if not immediately, in a short time. If my friend is only basing his decision on what the "other woman" says, then he will more than likely be making a huge mistake. He would have to get the "spiritual recognition and knowledge" that she is his twin. It is possible that he is not as far advanced spiritually as his "twin" is -- so it will take him longer to come to terms with this. Or - this other woman may just be playing an emotional game with him, using the "twin soul" issue to get what she wants.
At the beginning of Creation each soul had an option to go through many life times by themselves and create relationships of significance for learning all they need to. This may take many, many life times to accomplish. Along the way, this one soul develops very close relationships with others -- these are "soul mates". Some souls decided to split into male and female, thereby experiencing life times and gaining knowledge twice as fast. These are "twin souls".
Twin souls may not be together in each life time. In some life times they may not even be alive at the same time. It is rare that twin souls will meet in one life time -- and when they do the instant recognition is there for at least one of them. They may be on different spiritual levels and one may not recognize the other right away -- but, eventually they will be drawn together. Nothing on Earth can break the spiritual bond the twin souls have with each other. If they are meant to be together in a particular life time they will be, they will find a way to be together. If being together is going to cause pain and deep hurt for others the twin souls must realize that they will reunite when the time is right, if not in this life, then the next.
I know without any doubts who my twin soul is and I love him beyond all earthly desires. I believe he may be at a different spiritual level than I am. He may be further advanced and knows that he must complete his karmic relationship and his chosen path in this life -- or he is just not yet aware of the spiritual connection/bond. I would not ask him to give up what he has for me. That would go against our spiritual promises. I will walk with him to the ends of Earth and beyond if he asked me -- but, I would not destroy his life to do so.
