Can Twin Flames Be Platonic Relationships?

Someone asked us the other day if twin flames could be platonic friendships. After giving this some thought, we have to say no.


Now we all understand that soul mates do not always have to be romantic relationships. Many people have platonic relationships with soul mates who are in their lives. We can have soul mate relationships with friends, family members, work colleagues and even our medical teams. In many circumstances people share soul mate connections with their pets.

There are many differences in soul mate and twin flame relationships, although there are some folks who think they are the same. To realize the true nature of the twin flame connection we must accept it’s the most sacred of all spiritual relationships.

Before twin flames reunite, in the blessed twin flame reunion, they will usually experience at least one romantic soul mate relationship. These soul mate relationships bring with them many difficult life lessons and experiences. These are designed to encourage both personal and spiritual growth. This growth, not matter how painful, has to occur to prepare them to reunite with their twin flame.


To fully understand this we must look at the differences in the past lives of both soul mate and twin flame relationships. Twin flames have only been in romantic relationships in all of their shared past lives. It is during these life times they worked out many of the issues and challenges their souls defined in their twin flame blueprint, or contract.

As they work through these obstacles, life after life, each success brings them closer to their twin flame reunion. Even though there is a greater purpose to twin flame relationships, the ultimate merging of souls can only occur in the romantic twin flame connection sexual experience.

Soul mates, on the other hand, also reincarnate with each other across many lifetimes. As we mention previously, soul mates can represent different types of relationships in these incarnations. For instance, in one lifetime, your relationship may be as brother and sister, father and daughter,  mother and son or close friends.

In many situations we see that a soul mate couple living today may have had all of these relationships with each other. So while they are romantic soul mates in the current incarnation, the relationships in past lives could have been quite different. Perhaps so many romantic soul mate relationships are difficult, because of the diverse relationships experienced in past lives playing out in current time.
