Let’s break it down. What is the twin flame magnetic pull, what does it feel like, what does it mean, and how can it aid us on our journey?

The magnetic pull describes the bond between twin flames when they’re split between two bodies. This energy can both attract and repel but always exists as a guiding force to bring both mirror souls toward union.

It’s a (relatively) easy way to describe the pull between twin flames. The feelings of a connection that you don’t feel with anyone else. Usually, it’s the first strange thing people experience, and this pull towards another person brings them to research the twin flame journey.

Why Do Twin Flames Feel a Magnetic Pull?

Let’s start with the easy bit. What is this pull, and why do you feel it?

Twin flames are the strongest spiritual relationship any of us have. When a soul splits itself into two separate bodies, it’s never entirely separate. It creates a magnetic pull between both halves, sometimes described as a silver thread between the two of you.

An unbreakable bond (regardless of what it goes through) constantly pulls the two of you together.

This magnetic attraction isn’t started or triggered by either mirror soul. It just is. It’s this connection that allows the transfer of energy, emotion, and twin-flame telepathy. It’s this bond that pulls the two of you together against all the odds.

I’ve heard from thousands of people on their journey (and I’ve gone through my own), and I’ve seen mirror souls overcome some truly incredible odds to reach union together. This magnetic pull guides us for this to happen.

Do Both Twins Feel It?

Yes… and no.

I know you all hate it when I answer questions like this, but bear with me – because this is important to understand.


On some level, both of you are completely aware of this connection. Even before you ever physically meet in this lifetime, the pull between the two of you is felt.

Normally, at least one (if not both) of you have no idea what a twin flame is. The pull just feels like something is missing from your life, like a pit in your stomach or a yearning for… something. It’s hard to describe in words because it’s hard to put your finger on exactly what it was but (if pressed) I’d call it overall boredom with everything else in your life because you feel like that one something is missing.

Often (and here’s the problem), it’s not even obvious that something is another person.

… But Also No.

So technically, both twins feel the pull – but they don’t necessarily know what they’re feeling. The twin flame connection can manifest in many different ways – especially within the less spiritually evolved twin. They’ll feel a pull, but they’ll try to answer that empty feeling with whatever they think they need. For example:

Signs You Are Feeling Your Twin Flame Magnatize You

You might also feel the signs that your mirror soul is feeling this pull.

Irresistible Pull Between You Both

In the midst of your twin flame journey, you may find an overwhelming compulsion to be near your other half. Regardless of the circumstances in the 3D world, the invisible strings that connect twin flame pairs tug insistently. Here’s what characterizes this unique connection:

  • An inexorable attraction that you seem incapable of resisting.
  • Persistent thoughts of your twin flame occupying your mind.
  • An unexplained connection that defies ordinary explanations.

Remember, this potent urge for proximity is a telltale marker of your twin flame’s magnetic pull.

 You Feel an Intense Attraction to Each Other (More Than the Usual)

  • Physical magnetism: Your connection is so palpable it feels like a magnetic force, drawing you inexorably toward one another.
  • Emotional resonance: This attraction is not just skin-deep; it permeates to a deeper, emotional plane, hinting at a profound bond.
  • Passion and intensity: The impetus of your mutual attraction suggests a relationship pulsing with passion and zeal.
  • Long-lasting connection: The strength of this magnetism indicates a bond that’s poised to endure through time, underpinned by trust and openness.

You Both Keep Connecting

Despite attempts to distance yourself from your twin flame, a powerful invisible force seems to consistently draw you back together.

It’s as though there’s an unseen tether connecting you both, making the concept of permanent separation not just difficult but seemingly impossible. This incessant pull is more than emotional—it can manifest as a physical sensation, a magnetism that’s hard to deny.

Your twin flame occupies a space in your life indelibly, almost as if overcoming any wounds or pains from the separation phase only reinforces the bond.

Undeniable Emotional Tie

Don’t confuse an emotional tie with a soul tie.

Your emotional bond with your twin flame defies conventional explanation. It’s a profound spiritual connection that goes beyond the surface, tapping into deep-seated feelings and an emotional connection that is unmistakable.

The sensation is powerful and unique, revealing an unbreakable bond that has no parallel in ordinary relationships.

Intensified Energy Alignment (More Than Usual)

When in the presence of your twin flame, you might notice a significant alignment of energies between you both, leading to a surge in vibrational energy. This energetic elevation can manifest as a profound sense of happiness and contentment with yourself.

Key Indicators of Elevated Vibrations:

  • A marked increase in your mood, with feelings of joyfulness and optimism
  • A sensation of warmth or buzzing energy coursing through your body
  • An illuminated state of mind, where inspiration and positive thoughts prevail

If you’re experiencing lower vibrations, it could be a sign of negative thought patterns or internal emotional battles. The aim is to nurture positive energies that foster personal growth and a deeper connection with the universe, contributing to your spiritual journey and self-discovery.

Constant Yearning

The phenomenon of constant longing for your twin soul often signifies a deep and unyielding connection. Sometimes, chasers talk about the idea of spending too much time thinking about their twin flame, and this often happens when one of you is pulling on that cord between you.

This yearning is more than mere affection; it indicates that your paths are intertwined on a profound level.

Recognize this feeling as a testament to the strength of your bond. Whenever you part, even briefly, an unmistakable desire to reunite confirms that your connection is indispensable.

The Certainty of Belonging Together

You might recognize a profound certainty that you and your twin flame have a shared destiny. This sensation often manifests as an inner knowledge that the union with your twin soul is desirable and inherently meant to be.

Your connection, beyond merely romantic, could be pivotal in reaching your full potential and fulfilling your life’s purpose.

This strong bond tends to grow more robust as your energies align, guiding both of you toward a harmonious merge.

This inherent pull you feel towards your counterpart is more than attraction—it’s an indication of your lives becoming increasingly intertwined. Consider this connection a driving force, propelling you both toward the realization of a mutual life mission.

Intense Urge to be Physically Close

Feeling a profound gravitational pull towards your twin flame is natural. It’s the universe signaling a deep, soul-level connection. However, this irresistible desire doesn’t diminish the importance of individuality. To maintain a healthy bond:

  • Resist allowing this impulse to evolve into dependency.
  • Cherish the moments together and the time spent apart.
  • Recognize that needing space doesn’t weaken your powerful link.
  • Remember, while the urge to connect is strong, personal growth is also essential in a twin flame journey.

The Eye Lock Between Twin Flames

This sign is for those of you who are spending time together physically (whether it’s romantic or not).

When your gaze frequently locks with that of your twin flame, it’s a profound mode of non-verbal communication hinting at a deeper connection. Intense and sustained eye contact often acts as a bridge, suggesting a telepathic link where words are unnecessary. This occurs because your twin flame resonates with your inner self beyond superficial attributes.

Eyes are pathways to express genuine affection, revealing a true connection to your essence.

This gaze, filled with passion and understanding, symbolizes a desire for unity that transcends time and space. Trust this silent conversation, for it speaks volumes of a commitment that vows a connection beyond the observable world.

 Seeing Your Own Mirror

We often talk about twin flames as ‘mirror souls’, and we do this for a reason. Often, when you first meet them, their persona may seem uncannily familiar.

And when they are pulling on the cord between you and driving this magnetic pull, you’re going to feel this more and more.

It’s as though they reflect the essence of your being, understanding your deepest yearnings and aspirations with innate clarity. The connection you share extends beyond the surface; it’s a recognition of shared values, dreams, and personality traits.

This profound empathy is a testimony to the closeness of your bond. To witness such reflection is to know you are with someone who not only knows what delights your heart but also cherishes it deeply.

Heightened Intuition

Your intuition often acts as a silent herald, hinting at the profound connection with your twin flame. You are already capable of relying on this extra sense, but when you are being actively pulled toward them, you’ll notice it more than ever.

A persistent sense that something within you seeks closeness to them is revealing. It’s an intuitive pull—undeniable and deep-seated—that beckons to be acknowledged.

Trusting this inner feeling may guide you toward the unseen bond that only twin flames share.

What Does The Pull Feel Like?

twin flame pull

You’ve probably heard me (or someone else) say this before, but there’s a reason for that. No two journeys are ever exactly the same, and that magnetic pull can both attract and repel.

One of the most common trends that you will almost always find in a twin flame journey is your first meeting will always stand out in some way. The magnetism between two souls is more than just your eyes meeting across a bar. It’s like getting hit by a freight train.

But it’s not always going to be a great first encounter. Remember, this magnetic force can both attract and repulse.

Twin Flame Magnetic Attraction

This magnetic attraction pulls you together before you ever meet and after you separate. This most often results in an intense attraction between twin flames when you first meet. Often, it is an intoxicating feeling like you will never feel with any other person.

I’ve covered twin flame sex before as well because, again, that magnetic attraction is going to make it stand out from anything you’ve experienced beforehand.

This feeling is hard to put into words other than a rather unsatisfying “you’ll know it when you know it“. This kind of connection will stand out from anything else, and it’ll go beyond the physical or even the emotional. This is a spiritual connection.

This kind of connection will awaken something within both of you. It’ll make you both want more. Sometimes, that means you’ll both want more of each other, but often, it goes beyond that. You’ll want more for yourself and for each other. Over time, this relationship will erode your ego, promote healing, and bring both of you to a higher level.

The twin flame journey goes beyond physical attraction, financial status or even common sense at times. This relationship is divinely inspired and greater than the two of you as individuals.

Twin Flames Also See Magnetic Repulsion

Sadly, it’s very rarely as you both meet; this attraction pulls you together, and you’re immediately ready for union. In the vast, vast majority of cases, you’re going to spend a little time apart working on yourselves before you’re ready to truly be together.

Commonly known as the separation phase, I suggest you read that guide if you haven’t already.

Twin flames might break apart and come back together many times throughout your journey. This same magnetism that pulls you together – can push you apart when you’re not ready for this kind of spiritual relationship to take that next step.

Sometimes (and I’d say this is rarer), even the first meeting with your twin flame can be met with magnetic repulsion. It’ll never be something you just don’t notice at all, but that doesn’t mean you’ll instantly fall head over heels for them right away.

You might not get along at all, and that energy will completely backfire in the early stages.

That doesn’t mean this isn’t a twin flame. It doesn’t mean either of you did anything wrong, and (in some ways) it’s even easier to focus on your own healing during a separation phase if you don’t have the previous romantic experiences most have to face.

Why The Magnetic Pull Can Be a Problem

Overall, this magnetic pull is a force to draw you both together, and without it, the connection would be even rarer than it already is. The problem arises when it draws you together too soon, as it often does.

If a twin flame connection happens before you’re both ready to take that next step, then it’s going to trigger separation. While this leads to further growth for the two of you and is good for the long term, it’s often going to hurt.

After feeling this kind of attraction to the other half of your soul, it can be incredibly painful to spend time apart from them. That in itself can lead us to further our own journey and eventually bring you both back together for union.

The problem arises when we let this pain of the pull distract us from the work we need to do. It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of focusing so much on the pain or your twin flame that you don’t get focused on yourself, and the process drags out.


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.
