When it comes to the twin flame journey, any twin flame can tell you that there’s a lot of stuff to process, go through, and get over at each and every stage. In realistic terms, there’s a lot of wounding and pain to deal with too, since these are natural parts of the growth process. The twin flame soul bond is no exception to that rule.
There’s also a lot of healing that goes hand in hand with the growth process, of course. The universe helps and supports the twins during this difficult but very rewarding process. But it must be said that it’s not a journey for the faint of heart, and those who are going through one phase or another will surely attest to that.
Sadly the twin flame pain of being apart is a real thing. The separation phase can be painful emotionally, spiritually and even physically. I’ve done a full guide on the twin flame separation stage before so we’re going to get too far into that again but we’re going to focus on the pain you can feel when apart.
What it means, why it happens and what you can do about it.
Twin Flame Separation
We need to be clear about what we mean when we talk about separation. Before you ever physically meet your twin flame you’re both calling out to each other guiding yourselves to find each other in the 2D. While you’re technically separated at this point that very rarely comes with any kind of a pain because you’re simply not aware of what you’re missing. You might feel a yearning for something which leads to a search but it’s rarely what you’d describe as painful.
When we talking about separation we’re talking about separation after that initial meeting.
I’ve already covered this before in the full guide so we’ll not get into the details again but it happens when you meet too soon. Your split soul is not ready for union and while it can be a horrible experience it is an important part of the journey. While it is never easy, this pain serves a purpose to help bring you both closer together.
Why There’s Pain
Because there’s a very strong energetic connection between twin flames, once they meet each other either in the spiritual and/or in the physical realm, the mere presence of your twin can cause a bit of a revolution in your energetic body.
There’s a lot of energy activating and shifting going on, and it can be very taxing on your physical form as you’re adjusting to the new frequencies. The connection in itself means a lot of powerful energy dynamics, and it’s not necessarily comfortable while all of the changes are going on.
Because of all that, the twin flame relationship goes through all sorts of hiccups and challenges, and it’s not likely to be an easy process. Some twin flames feel some physical symptoms as their energetic bodies adjust and attune to one another more and more, and it can put a strain on each of them and on their connection.
Do Twin Flames Feel Each Other’s Pain?
Yes, undoubtedly so. The intense nature of the connection is a forever soul bond, it cannot be dissolved or diluted regardless of the physical or emotional distancing going on. We’ve looked before at specific examples of this like feeling your twin flame crying for example.
The twin flame separation phase often comes with major bouts of emotional pain for one of them, and while the other twin flame may not be aware of the source of their own discomfort, it will always mirror that of their twin in a direct or more subtle way.
The soul bond means an energy bond that acts as a link. That link means a lot of energy exchange, and pain on an energetic level is information just like everything else – it travels through that link. Even if they’re not both aware of it, it’s one of the reasons why they both feel instinctively driven to overcome the issues they are each and both going through. There’s a constant awareness of what the other one feels, whether it has become a conscious awareness or not yet.
Twin Flame Heart Chakra Pain
One of the most common types of pains associated with the twin flame journey when the flame is in separation mode is that related to the heart chakra. Heart chakra pains can manifest in different ways but can feel like a physical pain in the chest or a constant weight.
Simply put, as a twin flame some of your energetic centers or chakras are more active and thereby more sensitive and potentially vulnerable at times. That’s one of the reasons why it’s important to be aware of your twin status and do the work for yourself and the soul bond.
You may experience symptoms such as actual chest pains, heart palpitations, blood pressure oscillations, and even hand-related issues. Because energetically speaking your hands are the extensions of your heart, the heart chakra may exhibit its pain through hands and arms-related pains. None of them should be severe in nature, of course, and they should always be checked out by medical specialists before being seen as energetic or spiritual symptoms.
How to Deal With Twin Flame Pain
Sadly there’s nothing that I or anyone else can say to take this pain of being apart away immediately.
The best way to cope with the various types of pains and issues you may run into while on the twin flame path is to make progress towards union. The more in tune you are with your energies, the stronger and better protected you both are.
Undergoing frequent energy healing and clearing also helps tremendously with dealing with some of the energetic debris you might be faced with. Each of your paths and that of your soul bond will encompass so many different challenges and shifts of dynamics that practicing the best energetic hygiene you can is going to do you a world of good.
Meditating, praying, communing with your ancestors, and asking your spirit guides, animal totems, and guardian angels for help and support is going to offer you a lot of help. Each stage of your journey asks for a lot from you, and they’re all by your side so they can help and support you during this process. But they need you to open up to them and invite in their help before they can lovingly offer it.
Once you realize you’re on this journey, don’t be afraid to reach out to others who are in a similar situation to yours. There are dedicated support groups, sites, and communities meant to offer you precisely the kind of information and help you need at every step along the way. It’s important to see and feel that you’re never alone, even though you may be in separation from your twin at some point along the way.
How to Make This Progress
While there’s no easy A-B-C towards union and every journey is going to differ, I suggest three main things.
- Take your time and understand as much of the journey as you can. Try not to let your emotions call the shots all the time and be honest with yourself about your feelings and experiences.
- Work on your own spiritual growth – for example focusing on a Kundalini awakening. This development will be triggered with your mirror would and you’ll both progress closer to the stage where the pain will end and the healing will begin.
- Use the tarot to get a twin flame reading for guidance.
