In searching for a twin flame some people will meet a false twin flame. A false twin flame will have similar characteristics to the true twin flame but the relationship will drain your energy. A false twin flame can enter your life the same way as a true twin, but once that connection is established, the false twin will feed on your light. These energy vampires are unable to attain the spiritual evolution required of a true twin flame partnership, so they will attach themselves to the spiritually advanced twin to bask in your glow.
Similar to a soul mate, a false twin flame is a karmic connection that allows us to work through our issues before the true twin arrives on the scene. As we have mentioned before, a soul mate relationship is where you learn the lessons, the twin flame relationship is where you apply the lessons. The same holds true for the false twin flame. It is possible in some circumstances that a soul mate and false twin could be the same thing, but for purposes of our discussion we will focus on the false twin flame.
Characteristics of a False Twin Flame Connection
- Intense sexual energy and chemistry. In earlier posts we mention the nature of a true twin flame relationship is spiritual rather than physical. If the sexual chemistry off the chain, ALL THE TIME, and you urge to merge with this person, ALL THE TIME, it is probably a false twin flame.
- You feel emotionally drained each and every time you connect, speak with or even think about a false twin flame. They feed on your energy, leaving you feel exhausted, dazed and confused. You are the giver, they are the receiver. In a true twin flame partnership, energy is equally shared between the two of you.
- A false twin flame will create diversions and separate from you once they have fed. They need this separation, whether emotional or physical, to support the connection, as they can’t exist fully in the light of a true twin flame partnership. When they are hungry again, they will be back to feed some more.
- A false twin flame knows how to win the manipulation game. They know when to throw attention at you to reel you back in and just when you feel safe in the connection, POOF they go up in a puff of smoke. They will not follow-up on phone calls or emails, they change plans, cancel dates and perhaps disappear for a while. This will leave you feeling anxious and your anxiety once again, feeds their energy.
- A false twin flame will invade your dreams. These dreams will be very lucid and realistic, as if they traveled to be with you during your sleep. There will always be a message attached to a false twin flame dream. Upon awakening you try to understand the dream, which again drains your energy as you try to make sense of the dream.
- In a true twin flame relationship there is no need to obsess over the relationship as both twins understand the twin flame connection on some level. If you are connected to a false twin flame you will obsess about them 24/7, fantasize / day-dream about them and stalk them on social media. If you are obsessive about a twin flame partnership, it is not a true twin flame.
- A false twin flame will be emotionally unavailable putting up walls and blockages to their inner being because they don’t want you to see who they really are. A true twin flame partner will share absolutely everything with you.
- Once a false twin flame realizes they have taken all they can from you, and you have nothing left to give, they will disappear from your life and move on to their next victim.
If you recognize you might be in a false twin flame connection, we can only recommend that you assess the circumstances around you connection to this person. Remember a true twin flame will inspire you to be all that you can be, while a false twin will use that energy for themselves.
