We’ve talked about soulmates, we’ve talked about twin flames, & kindred spirits, but what ultimately is the difference? All of these terms are used to describe a soul that comes into your life & completely shifts your reality. These are connections that touch your soul, unlike any other, & make you question how you ever lived without them. But honestly, most people tend to confuse the three & think they are the same when they are not. While they may share similarities, meeting your soulmate will have quite a different impact on you than meeting your twin flame or a kindred spirit. So today, we’re going to touch on each one & explain to you how they are different.
Soul mates are something we dream of meeting at a young age. This is the term people use to describe an inseparable love or the one they’re going to be with forever. The incredible things about soulmates is they can be romantic, platonic, or sexual, & you can even have more than one. What makes soulmates different than a twin flame is your connection. A soulmate connection is one that comes naturally, & is likely to be someone you marry or remain with forever, while a twin flame connection brings growth, & helps to overcome flaws & weaknesses. Regardless of the type of soulmate you have in your life, be thankful you’ve found one because they indeed are a rare treasure. If you’re confusing a soulmate with a life partner, we have a post to help clarify. Check it out here.
A twin flame is very different than a soulmate. A twin flame is thought to be two souls split from one & put in another person. In other words, you will virtually meet a replica of you within someone else. Twin flame connections are fueled with passion, & can be one of the most powerful connections you will ever have. Because they are essentially our soul within another, they reflect to us our insecurities, weakness, & struggles, allowing us to grow & overcome our problems. These types of souls are truly the yin to our yang, & can connect with such a fire that you can seem to live without.

And lastly, a kindred spirit is someone your soul vibrates with. Have you ever met somebody that you just click with? Someone you just understand & want to be around? These types of connections aren’t usually romantic; rather, they are close friends or a teacher. These types of people help you get through struggles & are always there for you. Perhaps your kindred spirit may even be in the form of your best friend or your mother & you don’t even know it! These types of souls are always very supportive & encouraging, & overall just lift you up when you’re with them.
