I get so confused when I think about them.
Ever since I was younger, not a day goes by when I don't think that I hope to meet my other half...if I am lucky enough to do so in this lifetime. That "want" is there all the time; so bad, in fact, I feel like a part of me hurts. Nothing of the physical sort by any means.
I hear so many conflicting things about Twin Flames and Soul Mates...
"Often, when people learn that they share a unique mission with their twin flame, they begin to search for that one special soul instead of seeking their wholeness within. This is a detour on the path back to God. Your twin flame may have already walked the spiritual path and reunited with God, or they may still be struggling to find their way. Wherever your twin flame is - whatever their state of consciousness is - can greatly influence your own ability to find wholeness - and vice versa."
"Not all of the beautiful and soul-fulfilling loves are those of twin flames. There is also the love of close, kindred souls called soul mates. Soul mates are different from twin flames in that they were not created from the same ovoid of light and therefore each has their own twin flame. The soul mate relationship is a great blessing when for some reason we cannot reunite with our twin flame in this embodiment.
For instance, our twin flame might not be in embodiment at this time, or may not be following a spiritual path, or conversely, may already be an Ascended Master working in the spiritual realms to inspire us upward. An ascended twin flame might even send a soul mate to us as a representative of him/herself. Soul mates are drawn together because they are simultaneously working on the same type of karma, sacred labour and the same chakra (spiritual centres within the body).
Soul mates can be in the husband/ wife, sibling, co-worker or other relationship and they can be of the same or different sex. A soul mate is like the echo of oneself working at the same task to fulfil a service to God."
"Whether it be the union of twin flames, soul mates or karmic partners, the marriage of man and woman is meant to be an initiation on the path back to God, a commemoration of the soul’s reunion with God. It is our choice as to whether our relationships are based on the human or the divine. The union of twin flames is intended to be for the magnification of their service to God and humanity - it is a high and holy calling. To meet your twin flame while you still have karma may simply lead to another parting, without the knowledge of spiritual laws on how to balance this karma and the dedication to apply these laws."
I feel so sad and discouraged. I don't know what to think. I'm terribly sorry if I may be coming across as overly emotional, but this is the one thing I have not found some sort of concrete "answer" to. My "I AM" presence seems jumbled...I get thrown off balance so quickly when I go seeking this information...I don't know if something is wrong or if its right with me.
Please, if anyone out there can help explain this to me and help me cool down spiritually, I'd be so grateful for your service! I don't know what to do. I know deep down I shouldn't be feeling this..."nuts". My search on this subject led me to this website and I felt maybe I might be able to learn from this community. I don't know where else to turn. :(

If delving into it hurts you, I'd stop doing it. There is nothing at all wrong with you. It seems it creates a longing in you that you wouldn't have otherwise, so why keep hurting yourself? The soul mate/ twin flame thing really isn't necessary. Some people meet theirs, often when they have agreed to meet before incarnating to help each other in their tasks they want to do on earth. Many people never meet their twins, and that's okay too. I haven't met mine, and I do have a relationship with someone who is probably not my soul mate or twin flame, but we get along great, so I don't see any reason to go looking for something else. Just my view. You can find happiness with anyone who loves you and treats you well.
To explain better the last thing you posted - In many cases, the twin flame relationship doesn't work if you meet before both of you are spiritually ready (and by that I mean love yourself enough). Why? Because the twin flame is a mirror, they are part of your soul and exactly like you in a ton of ways, so if there is stuff you don't like or accept about yourself, its going to be right in your face and you're going to hate it like no one else because of your own lack of self love. So, then you either both learn to love yourselves, or the relationship falls apart. Its more common than not for it to fall apart, but there's more hope these days with people awakening and learning self love, forgiveness and compassion.
I don't know if that cleared anything up for you, but hope it helps.
Twin Flames/Soul Mates/Kindred Spirits???

I have found during my spiritual journey and research that many different people use these terms because it resonates with them but basically they are all used in the same way by many. We are all reaching for the same thing and because we are unique we will use different terms and understanding to reach our goals. I wouldn't get stuck on the terms used continue your research you will find your way. I started my journey 8 years ago and I read everything I get my hands on and it is truly fascinating and exciting. Don't focus so much on the terms as much as the bigger picture that you are being presented with. This pain that you describe many believe comes from the fact that we actually suffer loneliness here do to us no longer being connected to the source/God/Universe or whatever is your belief and thus we seek out a connection, drink too much, eat too much basically have an tendency to do everything in excess, seeking fulfillment.
Sending you blessings of healing and fulfillment.
Not Sure You're Going To Find

Not sure you're going to find an answer on here, but I can definitely relate. I've had several dreams over the course of my life about a blonde haired woman and in those dreams, there's always so much love, warmth and contentment. I feel like this is the twin flame dynamic in action.
Even before, when I was in my last relationship, everything was going along so smoothly, yet for some reason, a seed of doubt got planted in my head, that this is not the woman I'm meant to be with - that my heart belonged to someone else.
Best advice I can give is to work on yourself and allow the possibility that there is a divine plan being orchestrated which brings your soul mate/twin flame to fruition.
