It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.” ― John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love
Soulmates and Twin flames are divine connections which are categorized as spiritual romantic relationships. However, soulmates can also be relatives, friends or lovers. They are similar in so many ways that it can sometimes be highly impossible to differentiate between these two relationships. While soulmates are completely different souls, twin flames share one soul.
Twin flames, also known as Twin Souls, often refer to as being the other half of one's own soul. But, this does not mean that each twin is only half the soul on earth as each individual soul is already whole. It also implies that at one time, the two individual souls existed as one. Hence each soul can have multiple soulmates, but only one twin soul.
The purpose of a soulmate and twin flame relationship is different as the soulmates awaken and help you to discover yourself as to who you truly are, whereas your reunion with your twin flame is primarily for the service of others and helps the planet and humanity to make a big shift forward in consciousness.
Twin flame relationships are not only experienced at the mind, body and soul level as soulmates, but also celestial or universal level and are very rare. Soulmates assist in your soul’s spiritual growth which eventually leads to your union with your twin flame. A twin flame is the ultimate soul mate and act as mirrors reflecting one’s inner self. It takes many incarnations to reunite with your twin flame as it requires your soul to be free of any past or present karma and spiritually grown for such an intense and challenging relationship.

Nevertheless, all relationships encountered are sacred and should be honored and appreciated as they contribute to your personal spiritual growth. The person and the experiences have a meaning in your life giving you the opportunity to learn lessons and the ability to define yourself better.
Moreover, regardless of whether your special someone is your twin flame, soulmate, or simply life partner, what matters is that you are happy with the person in the relationship.
