Symptoms Of Twin Flame Separation

Every break-up hurts, but when you’ve lost your Twin Flame – the other half of your soul, the experience you go through is very different.

Not only that the pain is more intense, but other things will happen which you’ve never experienced in another break-up.

To clarify whether you are going through a Twin Flame separation, have a look at the following 5 separation symptoms.

If you are experiencing 3 or more of these symptoms, you can be sure that you are in a Twin Flame dynamic.

Excruciating Emotional Pain

As I’ve already mentioned, every break-up hurts, no matter how long or short the relationship was.

Separating from your Twin Flame however will bring you intense emotional pain, like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.

You might feel depressed, lost, confused, just as if you have lost your path or a big part of yourself.

That happens because your Twin Flame literally is the other half of your soul, which you have just lost. 

Feeling Their Presence Around You

This may sound a bit weird, but when you’ve separated from your Twin Flame you will have intense moments in which you will feel their presence around you.

There will be short moments in which you feel their energy, or you feel them standing next to you, even if in reality they are miles away.

That happens because they too, will think about you very often, and the mental, spiritual and emotional connection between you two is very powerful.


At times, you might know what they think, or feel what they feel, or simply, know what they are doing.

This will happen especially when they make important, life-altering decisions, or if at some stage they will decide to date someone else.

Needless to say, this will be very painful for you. On the other hand, the good news – for you- is that no other relationship will work for them if they are meant to reunite with you.

Shared Dreams

Occasionally, you and your Twin Flame will share the same dream.

Most of the time, the dream will contain relevant messages to your relationship or your reunion.

How will you know that you’ve just shared the same dream as your Twin Flame?

There are two options: you will either intuitively know, or you will happen to speak to them shortly after and one of you will accidentally reveal the dream. 

New Life Path Emerges

Somehow, in the midst of all this pain and confusion, at some stage, you start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

In other words, this pain will help you find another life path more suitable for your spiritual evolution, or it will bring you the confirmation that you needed regarding one particular path.

By following the path the emerges at this stage, you align more with your life purpose and Higher-Self, and a new realm of possibility opens up for you.

Causes Of Twin Flame Separation

If you are a spiritual person, you already know that everything happens for a reason!

Yes, I do know that the Twin Flame separation is very painful, but understanding why it happens and what role it plays in your spiritual ascension is the first step towards healing.

The 3 main causes of Twin Flame separation are: 

You Both Weren’t Ready For The Relationship

Don’t fall into the trap of believing that the Twin Flame relationship doesn’t work because the runner isn’t ready for it.

If you are the chaser, just remember, that you always attract what you are and what you need at that specific time.

So, if you were ready for such a romantic relationship, you would have attracted someone who was also ready.

In reality, you are at the beginning of your spiritual path, and your Twin Flame is meant to help you see what you need to work on in order to attract, create and maintain an amazing relationship. 

You Need To Work On Yourself

The main purpose of a Twin Flame is to bring to the surface all of your unhealed wounds and aspects that you need to work on, to help you become the best version of yourself.

A big step of successfully starting a relationship with your Twin Flame is to understand what you need to heal.

Write down on a piece of paper all the wounds that they revealed in you, such as unhealed trauma, and insecurities and start working on everything that surfaces.

If both Twins embrace the healing process, they are likely to reunite in a rather short amount of time.

If none of them does, or one doesn’t, then the reunion might be postponed until both of them are ready, even if that happens in a future lifetime. 

You Need To Grow Spiritually

Your Twin Flame relationship triggers your spiritual awakening.

If you already are spiritually awakened, then it brings to the surface even more aspects of yourself that you need to work on to be in alignment with your Higher-Self.

This means they encourage you to embark on a beautiful self-healing journey, in which you acquire knowledge, you grow and better yourself, you get to meet new people and live a new and broad range of experiences.

All these are necessary for your spiritual growth and for you to be ready for the beautiful Twin Flame Reunion.

Go ahead and do the healing, live the life, and you will increase the chances of reuniting with your Twin Flame.

How Long Does Twin Flame Separation Last?

Although you have all the reasons to ask yourself this question, nobody can give you a clear answer.

The only valid answer is that it depends on what you and your Twin Flame do.

If both of you understand the importance of the healing process and embark on this journey with no expectations – just with the desire to become the best version of yourself, you have high chances of reuniting. 

However, if one of you does not accept the healing process and tries to deny the crucial role of your relationship, the reunion is compromised.

Not all is lost though because the powerful transformation of one of the Twins can speed up the healing of the other one.

After all, they do share the same soul and their energies are intertwined, so whatever one does, impacts the other.

So, if you wish to speed up your Twin Flame reunion, I suggest that you start your healing process as soon as possible.

If you think your Twin is open enough, you can share this with them and make them wish to start their healing process as well.

If they choose not to, it’s alright. Your work will eventually bring you positive results, one way or another. 

Once you become your best possible version, life will reward you someway – you either reunite with your Twin Flame, or you meet a Soul Mate, if your Twin is not ready for the reunion to happen in this lifetime.

How To Prepare For A Twin Flame Reunion

The Twin Flame reunion happens when both Twins are ready for it.

You cannot control what your Twin does or when they will be ready, but you can control your evolution.

Chances are that if you do your part of “work” properly, your Twin will be ready for the big reunion as well.

If you are reading this article right now, then you are probably the chaser in your Twin Flame relationship.

The chaser is usually more inclined towards doing the necessary work for the reunion, and the runner responds at their own pace.

The main 5 steps to prepare for the big reunion with your Twin Flame are: 

Forgive Them 

Forgiving your Twin is not easy, since they made you feel excruciating emotional pain, but deep and complete forgiveness is the first step in making the reunion happen.

When you’ve forgiven them, you’ve made the first most important step towards your reunion.

If you are having a hard time forgiving them, I recommend searching a forgiveness meditation and a forgiveness prayer and doing them consistently until all the negative feelings are transformed.

Heal The Wounds They Triggered 

I probably mentioned this several times, but healing your wounds is the most important step towards reuniting with your Twin Flame.

Also, it’s one of the main reasons why you meet them at this time and in this place.

So, be mindful of what unhealed wounds they opened, what emotions they triggered, what hidden aspects of you they brought to the surface.

If you know how to do the healing by yourself, I encourage you to do it.

However, if you feel that you don’t even know where to start, it’s best to speak to a therapist or search for a spiritual healer that is well familiarized with the whole Twin Flame process. 

Raise Your Vibration 

After you’ve done all the necessary healing, the next step is to raise your energetic vibration.

As long as you are in a higher vibration, you can steer any relationship in the right direction, and you can release all the toxicity and drama added there.

Get In Alignment With Your Life Purpose 

Another main reason why we meet a Twin Flame at a certain time in our life is that they give us a better understanding of our life purpose.

They can make us feel what we are meant to do, or they will inspire us to proceed on a certain path.

Whether you can accomplish your life purpose now or not, is important that you become aware of it and take all the steps you can take in that direction.

This way, you are focusing on yourself and on fulfilling your destiny, and this increases the chances that you attract your Twin Flame back to you.

Twin Flames generally have a divine mission to fulfill together, and this often means that they share the same life purpose. 


The last step of the reunion process is surrendering to the Universe’s will.

Surrendering is a very powerful act. It means that you fully trust the Universe to take the action that is better for you, even if you don’t see it or feel it that way at the moment.

This step is especially important for the chaser because chasers can tend to want to make things happen their way.

However, when they surrender, that is usually when the magic happens, and as a reward for their faith, the Universe makes the Twin Flame reunion happen.

Also, as Twin Flames are connected on an energetic level, the runner will somehow feel when the chaser has stopped trying to control things and has surrendered, and that will give them an intense feeling of freedom.

Usually, that’s when the runner decides to get back with his Twin, especially if they’ve done their share of healing in the meantime. 

Whether you are the runner or the chaser in your Twin Flame relationship, I know your journey is not easy.

Your Twin Flame has triggered the most painful aspects of your being and has given you a tremendous amount of healing to do.

This path will be tough, but at the same time rewarding.

So, go ahead and do all the necessary healing, like the powerful spiritual being that you are, and I promise that the end of your Twin Flame journey, it will be worth it.
