Are we complete within ourselves?
Do you think you need a twin flame to become whole?
I must admit that I found this to be so mystical and dreamy - like those 'and they live happily ever after stories' I read when I was but a girl. You get this sense that some knight in shining armor would one day come and rescue you from this big bad world, and shower you with love.
As I got older, I sensed this void within.. that a part of me was missing - a part that can only be found in a man. I subconsciously looked for him throughout my life. But no one matched up to my heart's recommendations. I wondered to myself - does every woman share in the same thoughts? Or was I the only one looking and waiting for that perfect man. They seemed so happy and content; but I knew that what I was seeking ran much deeper than what I saw women accepting as the norm. My heart would not settle.
At some point in my life, I came across some information regarding 'soul connections' which really peeked my curiosity. I felt like I was onto something. You know that feeling; when you think you have stumbled upon some big secret that no one knows but you? lol. One book led to another and another. And then... there it was; tucked away in the midst of flowing pages: a chapter on 'twin flames.'
I thought to myself... wow... this explains it all. What I was missing was my twin flame. He was out there, trying to find his way back to me. Surely this can't be the answer! I remember saying to myself: 'if I believe this, then this is no different than what christianity has taught me - that to be complete, I must seek an external expression of love; something or someone separate from myself."
For me to accept this, gave me a feeling of defeat - losing a battle before it begun. How was I to find him if I didn't know what I was looking for; just like christianity: praying to a God that you couldn't see but must believe that he is out there.
As the years went by, I tucked that feeling away as far back into my heart as my heart would allow.
Then, I felt compelled to explore 'spiritual teachings.' I was searching for something; yet I knew not what. But I knew there was something bigger about me. That feeling rose up again - that feeling of not being whole. A sense of incompleteness. And 'wo and behold' there it was again - videos about 'what are twin flames' and how to know if someone is your 'other half.'
I tuned in with one ear; thinking that maybe there was some information that I was not able to grasp a few years back. I was like a sponge; just soaking it all up. I thought; okay, maybe there is some truth to this; and so I surrendered to the concept. ...... For a while!
There comes a time when the answer that you seek will be found in the least expected place .............. YOUR HEART.
