If you are knowingly on a Twin Flame (or deep soul connection) journey, then you have most likely experienced what is known as a ‘Dark Night of the Soul’, a dark place where your world has collapsed, you’ve lost meaning to life, maybe even experienced a dark depression.
This is, in fact, the beginning of a deep spiritual awakening. What collapses is the conceptual framework around the meaning you give to your life and when you eventually emerge from the darkness you do so with a transformed state of consciousness.
You awaken to something deeper; you have a deeper sense of connection to yourself and to something bigger than life that is not dependent on any explanation or theoretical ideology.
It is the death of the ego. A re-birthing of the soul.
Before the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’, it’s most likely that you have absolutely no knowledge of the Twin Flame phenomenon; you will be completely oblivious to it. You may have heard it being referenced, but it means absolutely nothing to you… until you go through your own awakening.
This is a good thing. Because if you did have knowledge of your Twin Flame connection then it is possible it would become your main focus and alter your course, steering you away from the karmic relationships you are meant to have and the lessons you are meant to learn along the way.
It is through the pain of the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ that you come to learn unconditional love and that is the whole point of the Twin Flame journey.
It is through this pain that you are forced into your healing journey.
It is through the healing journey you recognise there is no point in trying to ‘let go’ of your Twin Flame.
It is through this awakening that you develop strong psychic and intuitive skills that help you keep the faith and trust in the journey instead of thinking that you are obsessed and delusional about some ex-partner.
I assure you, you are not.
It is the ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ that changes your life dramatically and moves you towards your spiritual awakening where you are guided towards your gifts, usually in the healing arts.
It is the stepping out of the ego and stepping into your heart space, it is the healing and the personal alignment to your highest potential that leads you to your inner peace and happiness. Maybe that involves union, maybe it doesn't in this time around.
The good news is that when you heal, you are ok if union happens and ok if it doesn't.
Take care on this sacred journey. Purge the grief. Heal your heart.
