Now that you’ve encountered the concept of a twin flame, you are wondering if you are in a twin flame or in a life partner relationship. 

What’s the difference? Are they one and the same? Are they different types of relationships? 

To understand the difference, let’s look at what is commonly considered to be a twin flame relationship in comparison with a life partner relationship.

Your twin flame

This is sometimes referred to as an intimate relationship with an aspect of friendship or family. Your twin flame will usually appear to you when you are ready for your next step in spiritual growth and evolution.

As defined by Carol Pearson and Aruna: as the two of your Twin Flame, you are in an incarnated soul connection with the Divine that happens after at least one twin has opened their heart to self-love and ascension of consciousness.

Many times, the higher dimensional part of a twin flame will choose to stay on Earth to continue changing the world from within.

To put it simply, a twin flame is a person that shares the same soul as you, with whom you have a deep connection. 

Unlike many spiritual concepts or relationships in modern society (like a life partner), twins don’t need to meet throughout time and space — they are always together and have shared memories from before conception onward.

Your life partner

A life partner is a person with whom you have vowed to share your life. 

A life partner may be your spouse, paramour, or significant other.

In most cases, life partners can be sexual or platonic partners. 

Sexual partnerships have traditionally been the domain of sexual relationships—a relationship between two people who freely choose to experience pleasure with each other during their lifetime and especially after death, called an afterlife love relationship. 

On the other hand, platonic partners (or friends) can be people with whom you share a close, intimate relationship at personal and/or professional levels. 

It can be between two people of the same sex, or two people of opposite sexes, who are free to choose to share their life experiences with each other.

What are twin flame relationships like?

The concept of a twin flame is similar to the idea of soul mates. This can be a person who always feels like they have known you, or it can be someone you might know for just a short time yet feeling like you’ve known them all your life.

Trying to meet your twin flame before you were ready for it may not work out as well for some people in some instances as these individuals are being guided by another set of souls that have not yet completed its own incarnation cycle on Earth. 

So, when they meet their twin flame, they may not find them in their physical body at all. 

Instead, they may meet them in their dream state, or they may see them on a social media platform before they meet them in person.

In the ideal twin flame relationship, each person is ready to learn and grow through their connection together, especially if one of the partners is at a much higher level of consciousness than the other. 

When this is not the case, however, this can cause each partner to be unequally yoked and result in one or both people losing themselves during their time together. 

The goal in meeting a twin flame is for both people to continue to live as authentically as possible because each person’s soul’s purpose continues to manifest regardless of who they have bonded with in this lifetime.

What are life partners like?

In short, a life partner is someone who helps you to complete your life purpose by being in relationship with you.

There is no one else on Earth like you. You may well have another person who has helped you to complete this lifetime of work and service, but it’s rare that they are a true match between the souls.

To experience the ultimate desire of having a life partner (or several) in your physical life, is to surround yourself with many different types of people who will inspire and challenge you. 

It’s so easy for us to get stuck inside our own little bubble of the comfort zone when we have an idealized vision of what our future has in store for us. Then, as we enter into a relationship with someone we care deeply about, the world begins to look so much smaller.

This is not a bad thing; in fact, it reveals that we are growing and doing our best to learn from those around us. As you travel on your journey with another person, it’s vital that you stay true to yourself because their soul purpose is not yours. 

Watching them do what they are meant to do will help you as well in many ways. Sometimes, a life partner will lead us into new arenas of experience to help pull out our gifts and talents that have been buried within or set aside until the right time.

What would a gifted advisor say?

The points we cover in this article will give you a good idea of whether you are in a twin flame or life partner relationship.

But since your situation is unique to you, the best thing you can do is get tailored advice.

That’s why we recommend getting a personalized psychic reading to really address the issues you’re facing.

The key, however, is finding someone trustworthy to speak to.

After a really challenging time in my love life, I found that speaking to an advisor from Psychic Source gave me the strength and motivation to get my life back on track.

The advisor I spoke to was kind, understanding of my situation, and genuinely helpful.

3 signs that you are in a twin flame relationship

1) You are able to emotionally connect with others on a deep level. 

Not all twin flames understand this process of linking together with a higher dimensional perspective of themselves created from the union of their soul essence. 

However, it is still there as you continue to learn and grow as a person. A lot of times, this deep emotional connection that you have with others are often found in friendships because there is a strong bond created between the two of you both on an energetic and soul level.

When twins begin to return to Earth or once they become aware of their twin flame connection, they can experience multiple versions of their own personality. 

These different personalities may be present in physical relationships at this early stage of self-discovery. If a personality isn’t the same type of energy as your twin flame, it can cause fighting habits within your own mind. 

2) You feel like you aren’t good enough and need to work on your personal growth. 

This happens to many twins, especially the ones that have been raised in a religious background. 

Many of these twin flames will be very judgmental of themselves and struggle with the idea of being loved by someone else as they feel like they don’t deserve it. 

If you are struggling with this feeling in your life, ask yourself this question: 

“What if I am not good enough for someone else?” 

You may begin to fight against the feeling that you aren’t good enough. This can show up in many ways such as pushing people away or sabotaging relationships out of fear you might be rejected. 

To counter this though, create a list of three things that you are thankful for about yourself. Repeat this list to yourself every morning or night and say: 

“I am enough. I am whole and perfect. I accept myself just the way I am.”

Hence, you realize that your life is much bigger than yourself, and that it has meaning beyond yourself. 

3) You love the chase or process of finding a twin flame, but cannot sustain a relationship. 

Often, this is caused by the fact that their partner might be using them at times because they don’t want someone new in their life, but they do want to feel wanted again because they have been hurt before in previous relationships. 

In this case, twin flames are more likely to find a soul mate to fulfill their desires because they have been given guidance on how to meet and bond with their potential life partner. 

If you are beginning to experience this feeling in your life, ask yourself: 

“What is my purpose in life?” 

This is very important as it will begin to help you live authentically. You might be surprised by the answer or guided towards a path that will lead you into a relationship with someone who shares this same passion for what your life purpose can be.

In conclusion, twin flames are not made from the same mold. This is why every twin flame relationship is different from one another

However, there are certain similarities that twins share with one another because they have a deeper understanding about what it takes to be happy and find a true connection with someone. 

3 signs that you are in a life partner relationship

1) You see yourself growing old with them.

Many people have a vision of what they want their future to be when they are in a relationship with another person. 

If you envision yourself growing old with your partner, that could be a sign that you are in a life partner type of relationship. If you can’t imagine yourself growing old with someone, this is an important question to ask yourself when thinking about whether or not your current partner is the right one for you. 

You may need to break up with your current partner if they don’t share these feelings with you as well. Many times, this feeling will fade away over time if there isn’t an alignment present in the relationship.

2) You can easily bond with others who are close to you.

Others here are such as friends and family members. 

Not all twins will experience the feeling of being a caged animal that needs freedom from their current situation. Instead, they enjoy spending time with others because they feel safe to be themselves without being judged by others. 

As they are your life partner, you can easily bond with those around you. This allows for more freedom for the both of you to go about your lives and discover all that life has to offer.

When you find yourself in relationships with others, it’s best to seek out someone who is also compassionate and full of positivity within their own mindset. 

3) You are always on the move.

With your life partner, you both want to experience different cultures, religions, and landscapes in your lives.

This is because you are constantly learning what it means to be human. 

Therefore, there is no limit set on who or what you can be apart from the limitations of what others may think of them. 

Having you life partner, you want to experience all that life has to offer as you both need this in order to understand the purpose of your existence while on Earth. 

They can be your guide to showing you the positive behavior patterns that will lead you towards discovering what your life purpose truly is. 

Differences between a twin flame and a life partner

When you are in a relationship with your life partner, they will have certain characteristics that will be different than your twin flame – they are meant to fulfill different roles that are outside of you. 

The one universal trait within both types of relationships is how much the twins love each other and how close they feel towards each other. Your twin flame will most likely be drawn to you because you share a deep connection and an open heart, which is rare for anyone. 

Your twin flame wants you in their life since they understand the feelings of passion and attraction that they feel towards you. 

As for your a life partner, the main feeling here is that of compassion, which makes you want to help them reach their goals and complete the tasks that are needed for their life purpose. 

You can do this by providing them with the structure and guidance that they need to get through life. You want to stay as close as possible within your circle of influence so you can be there to protect them from any obstacles in their lives that might try to hold them back.

Can your twin flame be your life partner?

The answer to this question is yes and no. 

You can have your twin flame be your life partner, but this isn’t the same for everyone. 

For example, let’s say that you and your twin flame decide that you don’t want to have a sexual relationship with one another until marriage. 

Most of the time, they will stick to this commitment because they are very passionate about who you are as a person. Some people may even stay celibate for the rest of their lives just to be with you since they feel such a strong connection because of how spiritually connected one another is. 

This is why it is important to understand yourself and your life purpose before you seek out a relationship with anyone. 

You want to make sure that you are in a place where you can be completely happy with who you are as a person since this is the first step towards finding someone whose life purpose matches what your own is. 

Final thoughts

Both a life partner and twin flame are different beings, but they are both eternal qualities of life and they do have common traits. 

Whether you are in a relationship with someone else, or are on your way to finding someone in your life, it’s important to understand who you are and why you’re here. 

Hopefully, you should now have a good idea about your current relationship with your special person. But if you’d still like to get more clarity on the situation, speaking to a gifted advisor is the best way to go. 

I mentioned Psychic Source earlier. Based on my own personal experience with them, I know they’re the real deal. Their advisors are kind and genuinely helpful.

So, if you really want to get to the bottom of why you feel like they are your twin flame more than your life partner or vice versa, get in touch with an advisor and take your future into your own hands. I did, and it changed my life.
