12/12/12: The Twin Flame in Day-to-Day Life

Twin Flame - Soul Mate

12th December 2012

So the very special and significant numerological date 12/12/12 comes upon us. To me, as someone who reads synchronicity as a way of life, numerology is very important. It symbolises the  inter-connectivity  of life: apparently random acts happening in concert. I read numbers but feel the impact in my knowing being. During the build up to 12/12/12, synchronistically I’m having an amazing Twin Flame experience. Souls that notionally divide into two, and are then experienced through the ‘holy trinity’ – the ‘father’, the ‘son’ and the ‘holy ghost’. And it feels doubly significant at these times of planetary transition…

An eternal affinity

As we’ve written about before here on Openhandweb, when a soul comes into being, it notionally subdivides into two. One part stays close to the source, the other incarnates. To the incarnated partner,  the Twin Flame  is the polarity constantly whispering in your ear, singing into the depths of your heart, reminding you of who you are, why you are here and guiding you home.

There will never be a love more powerful than the Twin Flame.
It’s the ‘other part of you’, the completion of the whole
eternally romancing you through the apparent universe of separation.

Your Twin Flame has an eternal affinity with you. No one nor nothing will ever know you as well. No other  soul  outside of this heavenly interplay will ever understand you in the way your Twin Flame does, no one can empathise that deeply, not another soul can cause you to melt into your own being in the same way.

Yet here’s the heavenly paradox – our ‘purpose’ is to experience this infinite sense of unity THROUGH the separation. Otherwise the pull back to unity would be so strong and so rapid the universe would disappear for you in an instant. The apparent separation would no longer exist, the relativity no longer relative – duality would instantly disappear as two lovers drawn passionately into one another and melting into one. It is the dance of separation that makes life complete.

In and through all things

So one’s Twin Flame expresses in and through all things. She’s ‘tempting’ you into the chaos and disorder, to make sense of it. He’s alluring you into the deepest intimate love affair with another soul, yet inviting you to always taste and remember unity with your very own self.

It takes the internal sense of completeness to experience the Twin Flame in day-to-day life, but that is where ‘he’ is to be found. She is out there, hiding beyond every smile, through ever twinkle of a shining eye, in the melody of the bird’s dawn call, in the rustling sound of autumn leaves crushed tenderly under foot.

Have you begun experiencing this yet? How might we begin? It’s all about being thoroughly in the experience of separation but not of it. Beware all you “non-dualists” out there, you simply don’t get this experience at all if you’re denying the separation – the raptuous relativity – between one thing and another.

You have to be totally immersed in life, not resisting a drop of it – the pleasure the pain, the joy and the tears. It’s not about denying one tiny morsel of this human experience. And it’s as this divine poetry plays out that the Twin Flame rises from the page of life.

The infinite cycle

So how would you like to take part in the greatest romance of your life? Just take a moment out of your busy day. Reflect on the greatest loving partner experiences of your life. Recall the images, let the feelings well up within.

Maybe you’re still together and it’s changed now. Or maybe that romance has long ended. It matters not – feel the feelings, drop deeply into the sensations, let the dream wash through you.  Then let the dream flow outwards into the moment, into images, people, situations, into mother nature. Keep energising the flow, sending it out into everything you see and touch. Give your love to the swirling skies, to the flowing streams, the rustling wind, but then…..

“take that love back inside yourself”  Feel the infinite circle of the figure 8 complete itself within you.

In the beginning, in some circumstances it will be easy, in others it will be hard. I can be hardest when you’re deeply in love with another, when they carry the closest vibration to your Twin Flame: the soul mate experience is so easily confused, because there’s so much yearning to dive deeply into the joy of this heavenly separation.

It’s almost as difficult when another is carrying the polar opposite of your vibration. They are so different, so dissonant, that they can irritate you with everything they do, every word and nuance uttered by them seems to tweak those deep inner buttons. Yet even this offers a powerful Twin Fame experience – if you can find your completeness in the depths of irritation, then you’re being done the greatest favour.

Eternal Flame

So on 12/12/12, if you’re not yet having Twin Flame experiences, how about giving some energy to it? How about daring not to be owned by the drama at all. Instead, how about looking deeply and intently through all experience and finding that joyful part of yourself that may have been lost.

How about expressing your love, but then always allowing it to return back to the source of itself. To me it feels like lighting an eternal flame in the core of my heart, a flicker that’s always burning, guiding me home bound, back to the essence of my being.

What activates that eternal  Twin Flame feeling  for you?

About the Author

At the age of 40 Chris was involved in a life threatening car crash in which he thought he would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender and a rapid reconnection with the conscious life force through all things.

He found himself suddenly able to experience and contemplate through multiple dimensions of reality to see the deeper purpose of life itself. He began to remember his true reason for being here.

He explains…

“During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose – to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves. I was beginning to dissolve every belief and value our society had conditioned within me.”

“This was my initial awakening to the magical unifying consciousness of the soul. Over the eight years that followed, I was guided through four other inner ‘Gateways’ of consciousness. I have since come to know the process as the five key expansions on our journey of Enlightenment and ultimate Ascension into multi dimensional living – our divine birthright”.

Prior to the crash, Chris had a rich an varied professional career in industry, in teaching, as an Officer in the Army and finally as a web development entrepreneur before being initiated on his spiritual path. With a Masters Degree in Natural Sciences from Oxford University, participants in the work are finding his integration of grounded scientific understanding and profound spiritual realisation deeply engaging and transformative.
