Soul Mates and Twin Flames are unique relationships because they deal with the soul, not just the ego. Soul Mates and Twin Flames are esoteric connections and are not mainstream. However, these terms are now integrated with the conventional, but not fully understood, especially, when our western world is only familiar with Cupid as opposed to Eros. Nothing can separate Soul Mates and Twin Flames, not even death. Cupid and Eros are symbols of love.
What was the meaning of Eros to the ancient Greeks? The realization of our immortality. Eternity shines through time in the presence of soul mates /twin flames, exuding their immortality. Traditional love stories rely only on personality. However, the experience of the amazement of waking up and witnessing an eternal loved one, right before you, outreaches human comprehension. This is the definition of a true soul mate/twin flame experience. These are the 9 must-have books that will let you learn about the true Soul Mate/Twin Flame experience.
Twin Souls: A Guide to Finding Your True Spiritual Partner by Patricia Joudry and Maurie Pressman, M.D.
One day in 1998, in between customers, I’m browsing in a bookstore, and I spot a book that looks interesting to me. Twin Souls: A Guide to Finding Your True Spiritual Partner. The back cover reads: “You can know that you are indissolubly linked with another. Your meeting is destined.”
I go home and I start to read this treasured work. Right away, I am blown away by the material. The message throughout the pages resonated deep within my being. The book’s wisdom gets into the heart of soul connections. The material goes over the soul’s purpose and the difficult task of bringing the masculine and feminine qualities together within each person. The preparation for the twin soul is a must, as well as handling conflicts within the relationship. Recognizing each other’s soul is another must, and having beautiful enlightened sex is a pleasure.
The Twin Soul relationship is founded on a fundamental sense of oneness: oneness of vision, oneness of purpose, oneness of feeling. Twin souls do not pull in separate ways, except briefly and temporarily at the personality level. – Excerpt
I recommend Twin Souls: A Guide to Finding Your True Spiritual Partner for the exceptional wisdom.
Finding Your Soul Mate by Russ Michael
This is one of the first books I read about Soul mates and Twin Souls back in 1992. Mr. Michael states, “First, to be a soul mate, your mate must be found at the soul level.”
Mr. Michael also states Twin Souls are perfect reflections of each other, connecting on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.”
The time of soul mating is now, but there needs to be a realization that the soul is not the ego. When this enlightenment is understood, connecting at the soul level will require us to be conscious of our immortality. I highly recommend Finding Your Soul Mate! This book has deep wisdom at the subatomic soul level- the realm where true, authentic, honest-to-God Soul Mates/Twin Flames meet!
Symposium by Plato
Plato is an important teacher; he understood the knowledge of our immortal soul 2500 years ago. One sultry night in ancient Greece, Socrates and five other philosophers join together, and the Symposium was created. Plato, a student of Socrates, writes down the dialogue in which these enormous thinkers are engaged. This great literary work about love has survived the ages. These amazing men of thought gave us wisdom about two types of love: common love and celestial love. To understand common love is very simple: it is found in our everyday relationships. Celestial love is an extraordinary bond, the aim of which is to connect our gift from the Divine with another person.
“As we all know, love and Aphrodite are inseparable. The duality of Aphrodite is undeniable: One Aphrodite, the one we call celestial is older. The other, the younger one is called common.”- Excerpt from Symposium
In other words, the bond between soul mates/twin flames is an infinite connection as opposed to the self-interests between personalities. The one called common has to do with our personality and survival needs. The one called celestial has to do with the spiritual soul. The common relationship will just satisfy our survival needs, karmic obstacles will infuse chaos and the soul is unconscious to the parties involved. Celestial Aphrodite pushes you to journey deep within. She will coax you, to discover your own soul and prove to yourself that you are worthy of an exalted bond.
I first read Symposium in 1997. This is an important book for anyone interested in a Soul Mate/twin flame connection!
Complete Works – Love and Sexuality, Volume 1&2 by Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
I read Love and Sexuality in the late 1990s. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov was a 20th century Bulgarian Mystic who said, “Twin Souls complete each other, no other person in the world can so complete them.” This is because when the Divine Masculine awakens to their spiritual essence, they know, only the Divine Feminine, their counterpart can stand side by side together united with them.
Mr. Aivanhov also states, “Twin Souls meet twelve times during their incarnations on earth.” When twin souls met in their past incarnations, their connection was unconscious to them. Now, we are living in a time where our souls have evolved enough to recognize each other as spiritual beings on earth.
I highly recommend Complete Works, Love and Sexuality, volume 1&2 for Mr. Aivanhov’s esoteric wisdom.
The Love Life of The Ancient Greeks by Sofia Souli
In 1999, I wander into one of the gift shops on the island of Santorini, and spot a book called The Love Life of the Ancient Greeks. I start to look through the written work and I am stunned: the book talks about the oldest god in Greek mythology, Eros. I purchase the book immediately.
I start to absorb all the past knowledge that the Greeks had about a charismatic connection of the soul. As I am leaving the island of Santorini and heading towards Athens, I am engulfed by the profound wisdom I’m reading. Anybody who is searching for Eros has a very high aim.
The goal of Eros is for people to connect with each other at the deepest immortal level. The ancients say having sexual pleasure with another is not Eros. We can have sexual intercourse with or without this profound connection.
For the ancient Greeks, Eros was a combination of body and soul. The author of this book, Sofia Souli captures the essence of ancient Greek wisdom and states, “The elements of body and psychic (soul) beauty are what serves to erotically connect two charismatic individuals. The ideal communication of these two individuals leads to the genesis of spiritual good.”
I highly recommend The Love Life of the Ancient Greeks; you will become enlightened on the knowledge of celestial love.
Eros and Psyche by Lucius Apuleius
Lucius Apuleius an initiate of Plato’s philosophy wrote Eros and Psyche almost 2,000 years ago. Plato talked about heavenly love and common love; the former being the immortal love and the latter the common temporal love.
The western world fluttered into the dark ages, and the story of Eros and Psyche went into obscurity. The renaissance lifted the veil and Plato, his students and their knowledge came into the light; as a result, five- hundred years later, we can put their wisdom into practice.
Plato knew birth was not a creation of an immortal soul, but a transmigration of a soul from one body to another. Therefore, we cannot make someone a soul mate/twin flame, either we’re connected or we’re not.
Eros and Psyche was written in Latin, but Mr. Apuleius apologizes for it should have been written in Greek. As such, Mr. Apuleius uses the Roman Gods and Goddess as opposed to the Greek.
The western world is familiar with the Roman God of Love Cupid, instead of the Greek, Eros. However, the meaning of Eros and Cupid are worlds apart.
The word cupid is from the Latin root meaning (desire). Desire is a misleading word because the meaning is one of emotional attachment. When we have attachments, we want to control the situation. When we want control, our soul is not at work our egos are.
To reach for Eros is a very high aim, for it is an exalted bond. Eros is the lover, the god who mediates between matter and spirit.
Carl Jung was right on target when he talked about Eros, saying, “Eros belongs on one side to man’s primordial animal nature, which will endure as long as man has an animal body. On the other side, he is related to the highest forms of the spirit. But he thrives only when spirit and instinct are in right harmony.”
Carl Jung was influenced by Plato’s Symposium. In Symposium, Diotima, the prophet/ priestess teaches Socrates about Eros.
Eros occupies the middle ground, Diotima replied, “Eros is an important spirit. All spirits occupy the middle ground between mortality and immortality. As mediators between the two, they fill the remaining space, and so make the universe an interconnected whole. Mortality and immortality cannot meet directly unless, the gods communicate and converse with humans in their sleep or when conscious by means of spirits. Skill in this area is what makes a person spiritual, whereas skill in any other art or craft ties person to the material world.”
Lucius Apuleius touched on the knowledge of the soul to achieve union with the Divine, by the agency of a spiritual love. Eros and Psyche represent an exalted ethereal connection; the ultimate soul mates known in esoteric circles as twin souls/twin flames!
I first read Eros and Psyche in 2001, and I highly recommend the story of Eros and Psyche for the ancient esoteric knowledge.
Soul Mates and Twin Flames: The Spiritual Dimension of Love and Relationships by Elizabeth Clare Prophet
This book that I read in 1999, explains Karmic relationships, Soul Mates, and the Ultimate Soul Mate, the Twin Soul. The connection of Soul Mates and the Ultimate Soul Mate-the Twin Flame is profoundly spiritual in nature. As this book says, “Our ultimate union (Twin Flame) occurs when we have become one with our I AM presence and reunited in the plane of spirit as immortal, God beings.” This means individually each person must transform their own Karma and to be one with the Divine, before one is to be reunited with their Twin Flame.
Soul Mates along with Twin Flames are your spiritual family, but soul mates help you wake up to your immortal soul. By the time you are blessed to reunite with your soul’s counterpart (Twin Flame), you would be awakened by the help of your soul mates.
I highly recommend Soul Mates and Twin Flames– this book has great authentic wisdom.
Edgar Cayce On Soul Mates: Unlocking the Dynamics of Soul Attraction by Kevin J. Todeschi
The famous clairvoyant Edgar Cayce understood, soul mates are regular relationships between people who possess an extraordinary connection. Mr. Cayce understood the story of soul mates is really the story of spiritual awakening. For this reason, ultimately our search for soul mates is really a search for God.
I read Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates in 1999. This book is a cut and dry description of soul mates and twin souls. Ultimately, one must know the difference between Ego wholeness and Soul awakening. The deep mystery of our immortal soul is unconscious to most people. Therefore, what is unconscious is considered dark and evil; images like witches, warlocks, sorcery and vampires come to mind when we think of an otherworldly realm. A direct contact with the soul transcends our ordinary mind and creates a sacred relationship within.
However, the ego and soul do not achieve an equal balance on their own. One will take over the other, until we live from the heart and create our whole self. Ego and Soul have merged!
I recommend Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates for the insights.
