The original soulmate connection. Twinflames
Twinflames Reuniting

By Ann Elizabeth

The original soulmate connection.

We can connect happily and comfortably to that person. With very little effort, (not like Twinflames). We find our self in very compatible love relationship.

Then there is the karmic soulmate connection – You may feel a very intense feeling for that person, they come into your life to help teach you something. Sometimes the lesson can be extremely painful, but is very necessary for spiritual growth.

Then there is Twin Souls or Twin Flames connection.

There is an instant compelled attraction of energy, the spiritual energy of the two spirits connecting over time. Over several miles, and most of the time over years.

Usually there is the initial meeting of Twinflames and one half is more spiritually “awakened”. Where the other may not need time to realize, this can take time.

There can be emotional pain even more when there are reminder from memories of previous past lives when they were disconnected.

Twinflames can remain in contact, but mostly the two are broken apart and separated for many years working on their own lives deal with karma in other situations before reuniting years later.

There is always one half who is the stronger vessel, realizing the two have more energy to share together this often referred to the chaser. Always looking for answers why things ended the way they did, never having closure.


The Chaser can feel the intensity of this relationship and understands that it is extremely special. This feeling is always a lingering feeling there even if the chaser doesn’t consciously know what to expect.

The intensity of love that chaser feels for their twin flame is more than they have ever felt. When the Twinflame Runner just runs away without any warning, the chaser will feel an intense emotional serge of energy more than they can handle.

At that point, they will do almost anything to help and get back together with the Runner.

The pain from those past lives comes back when the Runner runs away.

There can be emotional pain even more when there are reminder from memories of previous past lives when they were disconnected (be sure to read my previous post about Past life Soulmates.

The Chaser knows there is a deeper meaning to their  love relationship they need be together and has a feeling inside that everything fits like a puzzle, the both complete each other.



The Chaser might be confused and might not even be able to understand why this is so strong and has never felt this way with anyone else? And will continue to wait it out for the Runner, knowing that they can’t to lose the Runner in this life, no matter what.

That is when an awakening happens. Understanding the intensity sacredness of this relationship. Knowing that Twinflames belong together no matter what. This is very difficult for the Chaser, and takes time. Once the runner phase is over, the Runner will realize where they are at and will actually return, to be reunited.

With everything the Twinflame Chaser is going through, the runner will return.

Many of you have written me over last few months on what to expect with a Soulmate, Twinflame connection, in this article I will explain the process and trials that Soulmates, Twinflame can sometimes go through before finding harmony with one another. It's a controversial subject with many different views online on what all of this means, I've been researching it and for many years, also asked the my Guides, on how to describe the process of this beautiful soul connection. The Twinflame or what is sometimes called a Twin Soul, is actually, the other half of your spirit. At the beginning, you were created with one spirit separating into two souls, one masculine the other feminine, that would make it energetically part of you! And because of the separation you had with your other half, your unconscious mind is always searching for that divine powerful connection. This is the main reason people turn lover relationships away, and continue to search, not exactly knowing what they are really looking for in relationship. They are missing their Twin-Flame, but it doesn't always mean you will find your twinflame at the same time. Actually there is 50% chance you will meet in a liftime. When you do meet your Twinflame, it will be an amazingly intense surge of energy. There will be no doubt in your mind that this person is the "ONE". You will feel like you're on an energetic level, you will feel differently, also you think differently. This is an absolutely life changing event for the both of you. This can also happen with same sex relationships. Some people incarnated as the same sex, nevertheless, it's no less intense or powerful than any other relationship. Everyone is different, and yes everyone has a Twinflame, and you may be with a compatible soulmate, that's great, you will find many similarities as yourself and be content with your soulmate, the love will be strong and you both can live a long and abundant life. The universe has a plan for you to be with someone you can love and be loved, live in harmony and find peace with each other. Your Twinflame may not be meant to be joined with you in this lifetime, it will follow into the next. However, there are reasons why you were unable to meet up, your other half is in another part of the world, or has not awoken spiritually, you will still be able to have a perfectly content and happy life with your Soulmate for now, perhaps you will meet up with your Twinflame in the next lifetime. But once you do meet your Twin flame it will change your life forever, if you are involved in a relationship, I hate to break it to you, but things with your partner or spouse will be ever be the same. You and your twinflame will have no mistake, you know each other inside and out, at the first site and day of meeting up. Twinflame connections are the most strongest and intense bond between couples, even if you meet your Twinflame when you're young, you will be together for your entire lives. The spiritual connection is so powerful it becomes what defines you as a person. A beautiful and exciting experience starts to unfold when you're with your Twin Soul. It will open many hidden emotions and you will have to come to terms with yourself and finally accept or just let go of past negativities and disappointments in your life. This purging and Detoxing process. Sometimes it can be a very toxic relationship then changing to the most rewarding experience your have ever felt. It will actually force you to search even deeper in yourself than ever before then lay everything on the table (so to speak). You will never be able to hide anything from your Twinflame. Over time it's gets better, you have built an amazingly unbreakable spirit bond that is sealed tight with pure unconditional love. Twinflames don't have it easy, there is always some type of chaos and negative standing in front of twinflames connecting, sometimes Twinflames have a difficult time with a process of finding one another and usually it means there is some type of pain and hurt involved. Every situation is different and unique in its own way, please read my article about Soulmates and Twinflames to get a better understanding on the chaotic energy they may face. When you first meet your Twinflame, the strong energy of positivity awake to a higher level of spirituality, your goals are now mirrored into another person. You are about to manifest the life t you always wanted, feel as that you can accomplish more than ever. This has to start with you. If your alone and still searching for a Soulmate, Twinflame or partner can enhance love in your life, that's great, but you need to be satisfied with who you are and where you are from. Don't think, you will be content and happy when you are in a relationship. This is the main reason relationships fail, some of the most wealthiest people in the world are completely miserable, remember money can't buy love. Some Soulmate and Twinflame relationships suffer stressful energy with depression, anxiety and panic attacks You need to be completely secure with your self, knowing yourself worth, having your way of rising above all challenges in life.
Soulmate Love

Twinflames are connected by an eternal sacred soul bond that will never break.

They are created for each other and as long as they both are on earth, nothing or no one can take them away.

Twinflames will come back once they are completely ready for the intensity of this connection. It can take time, chasing is not going to speed things up.

During the connection process of both Twin souls need to remain strong.  Twin flame connections never happen at the most convenient times.  They usually are in committed relationships, having money issues, and living miles apart, there are many practical reasons why these two, shouldn’t be together. Very common can be a big differences in age, cultures or religion, the list goes on, but they still manage to be together no matter what the circumstances are.

The relationship between Twin flames is very spiritual. You’ll understand the twinflame relationship, the more you explore your spirituality.

  1. Three words for you Ann: GREAT ! Great ! great !

    My love life has been such a struggle for the past 5 years, I always gave up …. well … a couple of times actually and I always felt like an invisible force holding us two together and bringing us back together.
    I surely could have met you a few years back Ann, that would have saved me so much time , efforts and migraines…

    But anyway, I wanted to give a testimony on how you have been able to pen my eyes, about myself, about Georgia and about our up and downs.

    I can finally see and understand what is this connection about.

    Thank you


  2. You have been such an amazing guide, I can’t stop thanking you enough!
    I have been doing such much better with Ricardo, it’s like day and night for over 2 months now. We are not done here and I can not wait for our session tomorrow.
    God Bless

  3. I have seperated from my husband he left me for someone still in love with him but i have been back in contact with my first love.He has a partner and tells me he loves me and wants to see what happens between us.I do love him always have had a special bond with him but we havent been in contact for 16 years.which way should i go because i love my husband but i do have feelings for my first love

    1. Remain unattached to both. Simply write down what you would like in an ideal partner, then ask God to send you that or something better. If it’s either of those it’ll work out without you breaking up a u relationships. But you also leave room for someone new who might be better and more healthy for you.

  4. How will the runner come back? Does the chaser need to keep himself available for the opportunity? Will the runner contact the chaser? I scared my runner away after revealing my feelings, and now I am worried that she will never contact me again out of stubborness. What do I do? Do I wait to reach out to her again some point in the future and hope the time is right?

    1. If the runner ran I would imagine your chasing didn’t help. Maybe you need to wait for them to realize it and come back.

    2. Dear chaser I myself am a chaser and when my runner left I literally could not explain with any words the intensity and panic that overcame me it truly felt like a dream or a nightmare Bc I knew it couldn’t really happen Bc it wasn’t supposed to …staying available will not feel like the thing to do Bc the hurt is so strong j tell urself I’ll move on and forget them ..wether or not u do stay available u will still hurt if this is indeed ur twin flame and at some point if they’re indeed that one for u ..ur runner will throw out pride and stubborness Bc they won’t b able to take the hurt anymore they’ll become as desperate as u were when u felt the loss..and if u are not available I assure u u WILL become available immediately!

      1. Have you experienced this ? How long was the wait between running and the return ? What was the cause of running ? Does this apply to the case where you insult them accidentally? Will they come back if you have asked them to leave in anger and misunderstanding when you wanted them to stay ?

        1. Yes I did experience it just as I explained but my runner left with no argument no attitude no screaming we went out of town to visit my mother I have him a kiss got in the shower and when I got out he and all his belongings were gone….it was crippling and terrifying….now as for your question in this runner/chased relationship no matter what happens right before the runner leaves they’re ultimately all running for the same reason and that’s fear .fear of a spiritual , mental and physical connection so extreme they know they can’t refuse it that makes them feel helpless so they think if they get away the connection will go away..but it.wont..and.the amount of.time is.diff. for everybody..but at some time or another from their very first time u meet ur twin wether it’s before THE actual relationship or during the relationship at some point you will spend a significant time apart to better yourselves andcome to appreciate each other and everything you went through so very much..and actually the unification can a lot of times answer your question of ,”why is this me??!!! ” that you. Probably asked yourself somewhere along your journey to get to your twin and totally reaffirm for you that every thing does happen for a.reason! And that.u finally found ur other half!!!

          1. Did your runner come back without your intervention ? Or are you still separated ? I am cut off all communications since 2 years now !

          2. Yea he did come back he called randomly to apologize and I acted hard of course then I couldn’t sleep that night I called him back at one a.m and asked if I woke him he said no he couldn’t sleep either and after all of five minutes he was on his way home even in the middle of the night!

  5. I met my twin flame a little over four years ago. I’m still not sure what drew us together, we live in different countries. The first two years were great. We met in person and then I spent a few months in his country. He would visit every two months or so. Year three everything changed. We stayed together, but the distance took its toll and we broke up for the first time in February. We did get back together for a few months, but eventually I ended it because I just could not deal with the way things were any longer. We are in close contact, but he most definitely is the runner. Neither of us is seeing anyone else. I am desperately in love with him. Try as I may, I can’t seem to bring him back. We are both miserable if we go any amount of time without talking, so we keep in contact. I am at my wit’s end. I am miserable and he doesn’t seem very happy either.

    I’m not sure what my point in all of this is, but how does one cope? He’s such a good person and I can’t even be angry with him, which is overly frustrating.

  6. I recently realized that my soul mate was told to me years ago by my deceased grandmother through a Ouija board my friends and I were playing with in our dorm. She was scolding me for being hung up on my ex, who had taken my virginity, gotten me pregnant (I didn’t realize till I had a miscarriage) and treated me terribly. She said don’t be a doormat. Then she spelled the initials of a guy who I met in college in a theater group. We had the lead roles of a very dark sexy play and had intense chemistry on stage. The next year we went out a few times but i didn’t see him as a lover although everyone in our theater group thought we were. I started dating a guy in my dorm and he got our friends to do the Ouija board. After this message came I was deeply conflicted and finally slept with the gut my grandma signaled. But things got very crazy, some jealous girls convinced him to date someone else. We lost contact over the years. I became involved in an abusive relationship and now have kids. He was engaged to that girl over a decade before she dumped him and married someone else. Then he got married to someone else, I think just to get back at her. I went out with a guy from my dorm a few years ago who had also been in our theater group and brought up if I still talked to him. I never even thought about him but this made me start. By the end if last year I realized things wouldn’t work out with that guy and I think its because he knows me and the other are soulmates. So I contacted him on a whim…..and he responded…

  7. I really thought I was crazy when I met bis. With in a few days we knew we’d been here before. N not always as a couple .. some times I was younger.. he’d watch over me. Some time we’d each be married. It wasn’t a possibility.. we just knew. I was in a bad spot tho n not ready. He married in a short time and I was so confused. Sometimes I still feel him near. The hairs on the back of my neck stand up n I can hear him in my head. Hello angel. This can’t be sane. His kids live close so I know it’s an actual possibility. He works outta state tho. But it’s rare I get these feelings. He use to wake in his sleep w his x wives n almost talk in a different language. Yelling n mean. Scary.. when it happened w me… it was different. And it sounded as if he was saying there u are I’ll never let u leave me again. Like an ancient voice.. n my body responded immediately. He barley remembers waking. But I’m a night owl. Since then.. I’ve been way more away or my empath traits. Always knew I had them but not the extent. I’m also bipolar. Pretty sure theb2 are connected as I’ve learned not only are the majority very intelligent we are also very in tune w energies n people’s emotions to the point of physical drain. Reading this I know I’m not crazy. N neither was he. But looking him has taken a part of me and my happy. We fed off of each other’s wneegy.. when he was sad so was I. When he was manic. So was I. Almost unhealthy for me. We thought n reacted identical.. the male version of me. I can only pray he finds me again. Next lifetime. Maybe we can get it right. Thank u.
