The deep divine bond that is a Twin Flame connection is not always an easy path to walk. The connection is more intense than any soul mate relationship, and the pair often encounters several obstacles they need to overcome. The mutual love, significant attraction and spiritual bond make a Twin Flame relationship unlike any other.
Many people are not aware of the fact that some Twin Flame pairs were not meant to come together in the physical. Sometimes, it feels as if the whole world is against their union. One of the biggest obstacles a Twin Flame couple can struggle with is a major age gap. If you found yourself feeling strongly drawn to someone who is much older or younger than you are, you may be experiencing a Twin Flame connection.
Numerous people who have met their Twins and have gone through a separation, know that this union cannot be forced. When you are in pain, you may think the Universe is playing a trick on you. The "trick" becomes obvious when thinking about that perfect person you met and realizing there is no possible way for you to be together. You basically see no point in this meeting. You may ask yourself a million questions, such as why is this happening, and how can it be possible.
The Twin Flame age difference plays an important role in the course of things. The Twins have a bigger life mission and goal. One mission is to bridge the gap between generations and making a significant change in each others lives. This connection is all about breaking boundaries, changing rules and shaking things up. However, having all this knowledge does not make your path any easier.
One's physical age does not matter when it comes to a spiritual connection. If you and your Twin Flame have a big age difference it is highly possible for you to be old souls. This means you have spent many incarnations together, on this plane, and even other planets. It is said that Twin Flames are one soul that originally split millions of years ago. The reincarnation cycles help the souls evolve.
Some Twins spent many lifetimes here on Earth, while others are new to this world. Having been one soul in the beginning, the pair has the same soul age and the recognition between them is instant. If you are already going through a Twin Flame separation, you already know all the heartache that comes with it. The truth is that being reborn in a human body was something planned by your own soul before your current birth. You were meant to experience life at its fullest, and in some cases that means getting married to a soul mate.
Upon meeting your Twin Flame, the way you view the world will change. All the constructs break down as you recognize your Twin's soul. Many pairs note a fast spiritual awakening, accompanied by past lives memories and synchronicities. This is normal and a part of the entire experience. Before you incarnated with your divine counterpart in this lifetime, both of you agreed on the lessons needed to be learned. One of these lessons was the age gap.
Most Twin Flame couples note a 10 to 40 year age difference, however this is not set in stone. The bigger the gap, the less chances for the pair to come together in the physical. You may be a 40 year old married with kids, while he is in his early twenties. You instant connection may take you both by surprise as you decide where to take this next. If your Twin Flame is the younger one and unattached, he will probably have different views on what this connection is. The older Twin may have problems adjusting to the balance required by such a spiritual connection. When you life is already stable, it is hard to give up comfort and stability for the unknown. This creates the push and pull dynamic and the more your ego struggles, the harder will be to reach the acceptance stage.
Sometimes, the less aware Twin chooses to run and deny the connection. This is all due to the divine energies not yet being fully integrated. Each set of Twins is different, and some pairs decide to remain in contact while sorting out their differences. If your Twin is afraid of the age gap between you and pulls away, try to remain patient and understanding. While this is hard to do while being constantly reminded of them, it is necessary for your development. Twin Flames naturally share similar interests and thinking patterns, even if they are generations apart.
Some Twin Flames come together as a romantic couple even if there is an age difference between them. However, this has to do with whether they are willing to make some life sacrifices in order to pursue this. Although your souls have the same maturity levels, the human side is still very much attached to the 3D world. You may have your own idea of what a relationship looks like, along with dreams and desires. Then, how does this connection fit into that idea?
The answer is simple. The Twin Flame bond is, first and foremost, a spiritual connection. The separation caused by the age difference and life issues can be conquered, so that you both can reach a phase of surrender. Once the ego has been tossed aside the connection between you shows for what it truly is, you will not feel a need to physically reunite any longer. The romantic love and Twin Flame connection can be kept separate, while the pair focuses their attention and love on their own path. Leaving the connection on the back-burner does not mean it will fade away or disappear; quite the contrary. You will still experience the shared telepathy and signs, however you will discover that balancing the energies becomes easier. The Twins share an unconditional love that is beyond any human level. They will both feel the powerful attraction regardless of life circumstances such as a big age gap.
After meeting, you may feel forced to face those darker aspects of yourself that you never paid attention to. After all, your Twin Flame is not someone you expected to meet. Even if you feel overwhelmed with emotions, the only way to work through such a connection is to come to terms with yourself. Once you do this, the road will be clear for you to integrate the connection into your life. Some Twin Flame pairs decide to develop a close friendship, while others move forward with their lives. In the end, it is all about your own soul growth and personal path.
You may find it difficult to share yourself with another after encountering your Twin Flame. Try to keep in mind that the Twin Flame connection can serve as a catalyst. You do not have to put your life and dreams on hold, and can still express your love to the one you are committed to in this life. No matter what you choose to do, your connection will change and evolve as you grow into becoming a spiritually advanced and awakened individual. Twin Flames incarnate together for a reason, and that is to share their love with others and help humanity evolve.
