After hearing thousands of twin flame stories, one of the more common questions I hear is, do twin flames feel the same about each other? But (unhelpfully) the answer to this is both yes and no.

As with most things in the twin flame journey, things are rarely that simple or black and white. It’s the nature of the journey, but I’ll do my best to give you a helpful answer. If you’re looking for something more specific to your journey, consider getting a twin flame reading.

If you don’t know whether or not your twin flame feels the same about you then I’m going to assume (like the person who sent this message) you’re going through a difficult separation stage. At the union stage, the answer becomes a pretty easy yes, but by that point, you don’t need me to tell you.

During the separation phase, it’s both yes and no.

On the higher level (you’ll commonly hear this referred to as the 5D or higher self), both twin flames feel the same about each other. That bond is there and manifests itself across many different lifetimes. It’s hard to describe exactly how strong a bond this is because it’s unlike anything else.

… And that’s a double-edged sword.

The reason it can feel like both twins don’t feel the same way is because of how your runner twin can act. They don’t always seem to feel the same way about you on the 2D.

Once you’ve reached union, the strength of that connection is nothing but a blessing. During a painful separation stage, when the runner twin is acting out, it can feel like more of a curse.

One of a million things might happen. They might run to a false twin flame, they might completely block you or even change countries to get away from you. That has happened more times than you might expect.

This doesn’t happen because they don’t feel the same way.

It happens because they simply don’t understand how they feel. The strength of a twin flame meeting doesn’t fit into their experience of a traditional 2D relationship. On one level, they feel the exact same way, but they just can’t process it properly.

This is exactly why we end up in a separation stage.

It’s painful, and it’s frustrating, but it’s part of the journey.

So… Do Both Twin Flames Know?

On some level, both twin flames know. You knew even before you started reading about Twin Flames. It’s very likely the two of you already met in another lifetime, and you both knew then as well.

Sometimes, both twins might be aware of what a twin flame is, and one may be in denial about the journey they’re on with you. Sometimes, they might not even be aware of twin flames at all.

On some level, they know – but that doesn’t always mean they’re going to act the way you’d expect. It can seem illogical to you when the connection is so clear to you, but while they experience the same thing, they just don’t fully understand what it is they’re experiencing.

That’s what it really boils down to.

Recognizing Shared Emotions with Your Twin Flame

To discern if you’re experiencing your twin flame’s emotions, pay attention to sudden, unexplained feelings that mirror someone else’s emotional state, especially when your twin flame might be going through a significant experience or emotion.

  • Intuitive hits: Feeling emotions at unexpected times that don’t align with your current situation.
  • Mood swings: Experiencing rapid changes in mood without a discernible cause.
  • Intensified senses: Your connection may result in heightened empathy towards your twin flame.

Signs of Communication from Your Twin Flame

Your twin flame might attempt to reach out energetically and show signs of wanting to communicate. Look out for synchronicities or patterns that remind you of them or a sense of inner knowing that they are reaching out to you.

  • Dream visitations: Receiving messages through dreams or feeling their presence while asleep.
  • Synchronicities: Repeated numbers or themes that are significant to both of you.
  • Physical sensations: Unexplained physical sensations such as a touch or warmth that suggest their presence.

Does My Twin Flame Feel What I Feel?

There are several levels to this one.

As we’ve already covered, they feel something, but as your journey progresses, this starts to show itself in different ways. A link develops between the two of you, which can share thoughts and emotions. We’ve covered things like feeling your twin flame crying, but this level of connection goes through the same fate as their knowledge of the connection overall.

When your twin flame feels your emotions like this, they’ll still not understand what they’re feeling.

It might manifest itself as a sudden urge to call you, or they might experience the same emotion but without understanding that it’s coming from you at all. Depending on where you are with your own spiritual journey, you’ll experience the same, but as the more spiritually advanced twin, you’ll have a better understanding of why.

Twin flames have a telepathic bond, but it doesn’t show up immediately like something out of Hollywood. It takes time for it to develop and for both of you to understand it properly. It’ll evolve as your journey does, but sadly, it doesn’t mean they’re going to feel what you feel during a separation phase.

Should I Tell My Twin Flame How I Feel?

Another common question.

If your twin flame already knows how you feel, should you tell them? Will it help?

Sadly, this is another area where it’s hard to give a simple yes or no question. In some situations, I’d usually say yes. Honesty is the best policy. The separation phase sometimes requires both of you to have little room to breathe and grow before you’re ready to reach union, but at some point, you’re going to have to put it into words. On some level, your twin flame already knows how you feel, but it can help your journey along to put these feelings into words.

As frustrating as it can be, sometimes being patient and giving them room to work through things on their own is the best way to go. If you’d like a reading for further guidance on your path ahead together:

Unified Emotions

Encountering a twin flame can be an enigmatic experience, particularly when your emotional worlds start to blend. In navigating this journey, you might realize that your feelings are not always yours alone; they’re often echoed in your twin flame. This shared emotional terrain is a hallmark of the profound connection that defines twin flame relationships.

With your twin flame, your emotions may feel foreign yet familiar, as if they belong to you both. The same joy, sadness, or excitement emerges simultaneously, reflecting a shared emotional resonance that exists within this unique bond. The concept of an emotional body that acts as a conduit, interlinking your psychic and physical experiences, becomes significant in understanding the dynamics at play.

In moments of separation or closeness, the emotional synchronization can lead to intense highs and lows. Such experiences may perplex those accustomed to the tangibility of the physical world, as these sensations transcend traditional sensory perception. These shared feelings are a testament to the energetic and spiritual ties that characterize twin flame connections, presenting opportunities for mutual growth and healing.

When faced with feelings that don’t seem to originate within you, consider the possibility that they are part of this intricate dance with your twin flame. This process often brings to surface hidden emotions, pushing both individuals towards a journey of self-discovery and transformative alignment. Strive to navigate the landscape of this shared emotional body with awareness and understanding, acknowledging its potential for facilitating deep personal transformation.


After struggling with my own twin flame journey for many years I became (I'll say it) almost obsessed with the twin flame journey and this path of self-discovery and improvement.

Now after sharing the stories of thousands of people going through their own journey I want to share my own thoughts and the patterns I see on twin flames.

I'm wary of speaking in absolutes on a subject like this. There's too much that any of us will really ever *know* (at least in this lifetime) so my opinions are based on my experience and the experience of those I speak to and who share their stories with me.

There are no two journeys that are ever going to be entirely alike but when you see enough of them, you do see definite patterns emerge.
