First of all, you need to keep in mind that different people use the terms soulmates and twin flames in different ways so the answer here can really depend on the definition you’re using. In general, it’s agreed that a soulmate is someone you can feel incredibly close to but this can also be true of a false twin flame.
Physically, a kindred spirit could be anything: a close friend, a confidant, a family member, a teacher, a lover, a pet, or even a landform. The connection to your real twin flame is very different. To really understand the answer here we need a proper understanding of the definitions of the two.
I’ll show you a couple of key differences at the end, but it’s going to really help to have a good understanding.
Finding your Twin Flame is worse than finding a needle in a haystack. So many questions and so few answers. How do you know if you’re doing the right thing? This free audiobook download has pretty much everything we know on Twin Flames and should keep you on the right path.
If we go right back – the bible kind of touches on the idea of a soulmate.
Not directly. The Bible can be read literally or metaphorically. The nearest we have to understanding of this is the symbolic marriage of the lover and the beloved. The Song of Solomon explains this Esoterically. “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth.” Chapter 1, V2. This is up to the individual reader to interpret as to their own understanding of what happens during the sacred marriage. If you have had a sacred marriage and experienced the kiss of the Holy Spirit you will immediately know to what the image refers. This is supposed to be a mysterious book of the work we have come to know as the Bible, but if you are in any other-worldly relationship with a Twin then you will understand it. I wouldn’t rush into a sacred marriage if I were you. It often leads to divorce because we are in cleavage. Divorce because no human being can ever be to you what your own Soul is. The Soul is the True Twin. The human aspect is something else but it is important because we are in human bodies. Conventional interpretations of this wonderful book do not examine the meaning behind the words with enough esoteric knowledge. Read the whole of this book of the Bible until you grasp the hidden meaning. This will change, at least for those experiencing TF, mentally, emotionally and physically. There are articles and much on the net and in books regarding Mary Magdalene and Jesus. Also interpret Mary the Mother of Jesus as interchangeable with Mary Magdelene. However there are three Marys in respect of the life of Jeses. Somewhere there is an article on Christ and the Kundalini which I read 15 years ago. Try the net for this. The book of Revelations is also an indication of TF. We are informed of the number 144,000 as in brides of Christ. Now this is up to your own interpretation of this magic number. 1 plus 4, plus 4 equals the magic number 9 which is the number of spiritual completion. In this lies the hint that becoming a bride of Christ will complete you. We can look at 666 in the same light. Supposedly the mark of the beast for those who have the ability to understand numerology and work it out, means 9. Whatever we do to this number reduces to 9. Those who first jotted down the bible were linked into mystical Chaldean thought processes. Yet Chaldean numerology does not contain the number 9. However Pythagorean numerology does. There is much more of a Greek flavour to the bible than is given heed to. This all equates to working the meaning of life and love out for yourself. Human love is only part of the picture. Divine love in its purest form could not be tolerated in large amounts by the average human body until the individual body is purified as in creating temples from the body in which the highest form of love can reside. Love is intelligence, intelligent light. In the beginning, after the Word, we are introduced to Adam and Eve, there are different interpretations of what Adam and Eve are to each other and then we have Lilith and the snake. So there are hints in the bible at the beginning and the end and some points in between. I don’t know of any articles which have been written by scholars who have dissected each book, chapter and verse with a fine tooth comb looking for evidence of Twin Flame love. However as the entire tombe refers to mankind’s whole relationship with the Divine then we could say that the whole of the Bible is devoted to that particular subject. Of course the first editors of the Bible, Old and New Testaments, left quite a substantial amount on the cutting room floor expediently deciding what was not good to go in, in order to control people and what might prove seditious. Gnosis, direct experience of communication with God, was rejected, as with this phase of the Twin Flame phenomena, much has to be revealed. Hindu scripture is older than the Bible. All religious texts are discussing the same concepts through myth and allegory. Don’t forget Jesus is the Bright Morning Star. That’s the clue. He’s the bridegroom. He is our Twin. The Christ consciousness is our other half, The Soul. Eastern and Western Philosophy hint at the same clue.

The Difference Between Soulmates, Twin Flames, and Kindred Spirits
Soulmates, twin flames and kindred spirits are all phrases that have been used to describe relationships that touch our souls and change our lives forever. But what is the difference between all of these terms? I’ll share my interpretation below. Please note that I’m revealing my own experience (and yours might differ). In my life I’ve had the good fortune of experiencing all three types of love. Mateo Sol, my partner and co-writer of this website, is what I would consider both a soul mate and twin flame. So the people in our lives can definitely overlap these definitions!
Kindred spirits are individuals that resonate at the same level, or frequency, as us. As everything in life is composed of energy, we often feel attracted to some people and repelled by others. Have you ever spoken to a person who just seems to “vibe” or “click” with you? That person was probably a kindred spirit vibrating at the same energetic level as you.
Physically, a kindred spirit could be anything: a close friend, a confidant, a family member, a teacher, a lover, a pet, or even a landform.
Kindred spirits often play a very passive role in our lives. In other words, they do not play a very major part in our spiritual growth, but they do comfort and support us. Often kindred spirits share the same personality types as us, as well as similar tastes, interests and passions. While not all kindred spirit connections are necessarily deep and soulful, some can be (these can be thought of as “soul friend” connections).
Soulmates are people in our lives whom we connect with on a deep level. As the name implies, soulmates are primarily friends of the soul. If you have found your soulmate they will likely be the best, and truest friend, you will ever have. You’ll be able to share everything with your soulmate, from your wildest dreams, to your most shameful secrets. Nothing is off limits.
Spiritually, soulmates usually play a major role in your development. It is possible for soulmates to be platonic, romantic and/or sexual in nature. You can also have multiple soulmates in one lifetime, hence the many love triangles we see and experience.
