Twin Souls: True Purpose

What really is the purpose of the twin soul relationship? Is it to purely cause heartache? Is it to bring misery? If there had to be one single answer, it may be this: the twin soul relationship exists to spiritually educate, to elevate the soul. And what in the world does that mean? What does it mean to become spiritually educated, to elevate the soul? There is no singular and perfect answer to this question. Depending on your spiritual beliefs, the answer will vary.

To be spiritually educated. What is that? In a way, your spiritual education is the culmination of your experiences; the good and the bad, the happy and sad, the painful and pleasurable. Your “spiritual education” is simply the life-lessons your soul has finally ingrained in itself. Another way to look at the question of your “spiritual education” is by considering it to be the knowledge you have acquired and accessed concerning the spiritual reality: This would include information like astral projection, dream walking, dream interpretation, spirit communication, past life memories, knowledge/information on meditation, and so on. This concept of spiritual education can be seen as a combination of the aforementioned; personal experience that extends beyond the current lifetime and technical knowledge and information. Why does any of this matter if you are only looking for your twin soul?

Looking, searching, yearning, longing, vying, for your twin soul, however you want to put, has in it one goal: to reunite with what feel like a missing part of yourself. It is quite romantic when put in simplistic terms like “the better half” or “my other half” or “my twin,” but the truth is that there is so much more to the twin soul relationship than it just being a missing puzzle piece.

Again, as I always say when talking about twin souls (or soul mates), the term twin soul has the word soul in it. It is a simple word yet is profound and complex. It is about the soul. It is always about the soul. The focus of the twin soul relationship is not on the body but on the soul. So, again, what does this mean? What does it mean? In a way, questioning what the true purpose of the twin soul relationship is like questioning what the true purpose of life is. For many, rather, for those in a true twin soul relationship, wondering what the purpose of their relationship is will be closely linked with wondering what the purpose of their existence is. But again, the focus of this type of relationship is on the soul, not on the body.

The focus of this relationship is not on the distance between the two bodies, but on the unity of the soul between the two bodies. However, most and almost everyone in this type of relationship, focus on the physical separation between their bodies and not on the union of their soul. And by focus I mean that everyone is always focused on how to physically reunite with their twin, what they can do to get back to together, to speed up the process, and so on.

So, what does “spiritual education” have to do with reuniting with your twin, with the focus of the relationship, with the true purpose of the relationship? Your spiritual education, rather, your spiritual awareness will allow you to perceive the soul connection between each other. And this will happen in many different ways (for more search the blog for “twin soul connection signs”). Your spiritual education, your spiritual experience will either allow you to be with your twin soul or it will separate you. It is through separation that lessons are often learned. So, again, what is the true purpose of the twin soul?

The soul. The soul is what matters. You cannot have this type of relationship without having spiritual implications. What is the point of a higher education? To elevate your station in life. So what is the point of a “spiritual education”? To elevate your soul. Your twin soul is here to put you through lessons that will elevate your soul. You are here for each other to teach each other, to challenge each other.
