This is one topic I still find fascinating. It doesn’t matter how many stories I hear, I love talking about twin flame symptoms around each other. Those signs tell us you’re in a powerful connection and that this isn’t just any other relationship.

When we recently looked at the intense attraction between twin flames I got several emails because I said something people didn’t expect to hear. Not every initial contact results in immediate romance. When twin flames meet, there’s a spark of energy, but it’s not always going to manifest exactly as you’d expect. It’s usually less of an “our eyes met across the bar” and more… well, every journey is unique, but it’s rarely something you forget.

Understanding the symptoms twin flames see can help give you guidance on your journey.

But please remember: Think of these as guidelines instead of rules. I’ve spoken to many people going through their journey, and I can guarantee you there’s no complete roadmap here. You’re never going to see the exact same symptoms as someone else. Hopefully, an understanding of the common ones can help you but don’t panic if you’re not immediately seeing some (or any) of these symptoms.

These symptoms can change over time, and they can certainly be… intense.

Having this kind of bond together, sharing this unconditional love, allows each twin to speak freely and boldly, including expressing the flaws of one another. There won’t always be moments of bliss in twin flame relationships. There is the potential for conflict. In a sense, you are learning how to love yourself on the road to twin flame union. It needs to be an honest and unconditional twin flame relationship where you share positivity and things that must be worked on together.

I wanted to get a little deeper into the signs and symptoms you’ll see as following these can be a big part of the journey, but if you’re just looking for an easy list for confirmation, then I’ll keep it easy. I do suggest taking the time to go deeper into this, however.

Signs You’re Around Your Twin Flame NOW

When you meet your twin flame, you’re encountering a mirror of your own soul. This profound connection offers a unique opportunity for personal growth and a deep understanding of oneself. Symptoms of a twin flame relationship can be intense and almost surreal, including a strong sense that you’re meeting another version of yourself.

Such a meeting is often marked by immediate recognition, a sense of inexplicable familiarity, and an overwhelming sense of connection.

  • You instantly notice them.
  • There’s instant energy between you.
  • Your intuition will be firing.
  • It won’t compare to any other encounter you’ve had.
  • Both of you will feel something.
  • You feel inspired and energized.

Often (unless you’re both already on spiritual journeys), you won’t know exactly why you feel this way, but even if neither of you has heard the term twin flame before, you’re going to notice something is out of place.

Common Symptoms Shared By Twin Flames

The twin flame signs, synchronicities, and exchanges you experience as you travel through the journey together will vary for each twin flame relationship. Each twin will experience spiritual stages in their own time at unique levels, with one or the other twin potentially not reaching their awakening. But for the flames whose mind is tuned into their twin flame, the most common twin flame signs include:

  • Instinct: Either together or singly, flames will know intuitively what the other twin flame feels, thinks, or what they may be involved with.
  • Common interests: It may come as a surprise to find that together as flames, you share many of the same interests in things like foods, books and movies. You may choose the same type of items when you shop, have a love for the outdoors, or possibly carry the same dreams for the future.
  • New interests: This is rarer, but an interesting symptom of twin flame telepathy can be twins sharing their passion or excitement for something without even verbally sharing the interest. If you find yourself suddenly drawn to something, it might be your twin sharing their interest.
  • Similar ideas or feelings: In many cases, twin flames will suddenly think of an idea at the same moment, often speaking the notion together.
  • Need to be close: Whether you share a platonic love or a romantic interaction, you will have a strong desire to be close with hugs, touching and holding hands.
  • Just knowing: Twin flames come to a stage where they simply know each other’s thoughts merely by sharing a look. Finding yourself in an uncomfortable situation is easier when you have an attraction of this nature. You can work in unison to ease your way out.
  • Sharing dreams:  There will often be times when twins share similar dreams or appear to each other with a message comparable to both of you.
  • Showing weaknesses and being authentic: While your twin may mimic some of your vulnerabilities and see your weaknesses through that person, there is also a sense of being your authentic self with this person that you have with no one else.

Instant Recognition and Intensity

When you meet your twin flame, there is often an instant connection that feels magnetic and overwhelming. You might experience a sense of familiarity and comfort as if you have known each other beyond this lifetime. The intensity of this meeting can feel like a sudden jolt, a profound awakening that is both exhilarating and disorienting.

Emotional Resonance and Mirroring

Your twin flame acts as a mirror soul, reflecting back to you your deepest joys as well as your insecurities.

Emotional resonance is strong; you might find that your emotions amplify each other, for better or worse. The mirroring nature of this connection is not only mental and emotional but can also evoke a strong sense of energy and soul connection.

Physical Symptoms of Twin Flame Meeting

Upon meeting your twin flame, you may notice distinct physical sensations.

racing heartchest pain, or other intense physical reactions can accompany the emotional and energetic surge of connecting with your twin flame. It’s as if your body is responding to the profound recognition and the signal of a significant spiritual encounter.

Twin Flame Symptoms Before Meeting

Twin flames are linked before they ever physically meet in the 2D.

This connection leads you both towards each other, sometimes overcoming some impressive physical barriers. Most of this connection is completely subconscious at this stage, and most of us never notice what is happening. In rare situations, you may start spotting sporadic symptoms early on, but most people haven’t even heard of a twin flame before they experience that initial meeting.

When you start spotting the signs, you might find yourself wondering how you missed them before. The further down your journey you progress, the more and more you will notice them.

Twin Flame Reunion Symptoms

I’ve looked specifically at reunion symptoms for when you’re beginning to reach this stage already.

In short, these patterns start to become more frequent and more noticeable. This is where you really start to see twin flame numbers showing up as well, which provides more specific guidance with deeper meanings behind these sequences rather than just the frequency of the symptoms appearing.

twin flames first meeting

The Moment Where Twins Meet

For most people, there is a nagging sensation that something is missing in the world. Even if there is no true understanding of the whole soul mate/twin flame concept, almost everyone feels that there is a specific person they will have a deep connection with, or… it sometimes just feels like a longing for something more.

Even when we can’t explain what that something is.

There’s no easy written path for that first meeting between two twin flames. Often, it results in an immediate feeling of ‘hitting it off’, and you’ll see a lot of the symptoms above showing up early on. The reason we had to answer the question do twin flames think of each other all the time? Is because it can seem like it’s consuming you. This level of connection is not something we’re usually prepared to experience.

Sometimes, that first initial meeting can backfire – at least partly. Hate is not the opposite of love, however, and when we don’t always know how to handle that initial wave of energy, it can manifest in different ways. While certainly rarer than initial attraction or love, your twin flame can bug the hell out of you when you first meet.

Once this person comes into your life and you establish the path you will take together, it’s important to understand that it doesn’t always have to be sunshine and roses. There may be times of conflict as you see each other’s flaws and vulnerabilities through the other’s eyes. But that’s okay. It’s part of the journey through self-exploration and determining whether you will remain together or go on separate paths.

Common Twin Flame Symptoms

When your twin flame is near or communicating with you, your body and emotions can exhibit several distinctive symptoms. These experiences go beyond the average encounters with people, tapping into a profound and energetic connection that is unique to twin flames.

Physical Sensations:

Warmth and Temperature Fluctuations: You may notice sudden changes in body temperature—a warming sensation signifies the closeness of your twin flame.

Heart Palpitations: Strong emotions connected to your twin flame may cause your heart to flutter or pound, tied to the heart chakra.

Emotional and Spiritual Responses:

Unexplainable Happiness: A profound joy may wash over you for no discernible reason; this reflects the positive energy from your twin flame.

Deep Longing: A sense of yearning or missing someone intensively can be a sign of your twin soul’s presence or communication.

Cognitive and Dream States:

Dream Visitation: Your twin flame may appear in your dreams, even when they have not been in your conscious thoughts.

Déjà Vu: Encountering familiar situations or feelings might indicate that your paths will cross again soon.

Energetic Occurrences:

Dizziness: When your twin flame’s energy impacts you, it might manifest as dizziness due to the intensity of the soul connection.

Bodily Pressure: Feeling pressure in various body parts, especially around the chakra points, is another indicator of this unique bond.

As you navigate these experiences, trust in the knowledge that such symptoms are manifestations of your deep, shared connection with your twin flame. Keep aware of these signs as they guide you through the twin flame journey.


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.
