Myth of the Twin Flame Runner

Many people believe the twin flame runner and twin flame chaser are components of every twin flame relationship. But why would twin flames run? What are they running from? And why would a twin flame chase their twin flame?

In order to fully comprehend this aspect of the twin flame relationship we must look at the nature of the twin flame connection. First, we must understand that a twin flame relationship is the highest level of spiritual connection we experience. The key word here is spiritual, and with deep karmic undertones. Twin flames have more than likely completed one or more soul mate life lessons successfully and are now ready for the ultimate spiritual twin flame reunion.

Myth of the Twin Flame Runner

A twin flame union, is composed of two advanced souls. These souls, through their own personal growth and experiences, are usually ready to accept their twin flame mission. The purpose of their relationship then is not Earth-centric. Yes, they can have great sex, but that is not the nature of their union. It is to help and inspire people of the planet. The completion of the twin flame purpose, is more important than the romantic relationship of the twin flames.

To have the twin flame experience your spiritual evolution should be highly evolved for the meeting to take place. If we are highly evolved, does it make sense that we would run from our soul’s purpose and the real reason we came to Earth to begin with? This is something we agreed to do before being incarnated, so it’s an agreement with our guides, our twin flame, other souls and the Divine. So to believe in a twin flame runner, we must assume that a twin flame is running from their mission and will not fulfill their soul contract. 

We don’t believe this makes sense at all. We don’t believe in the twin flame runner theory you find on other twin flame blogs. We fully believe that soul mates run from each other as they must endure obstacles and challenges that come in the form of soul mate life lessons. And even though those lessons suck, they are ultimately preparing them for the twin flame reunion. If both soul mates and twin flames run, is there ever a relationship that could work out for anyone? It seems highly unlikely.

Does the Universe want us to continually chase our tails, and our soul mate or twin flame, never achieving a sacred union? Do our guides want us to be miserable in one failed relationship after another? Again this does not make sense to us. At some point a relationship has to work out. There has to be love, happiness and stability at some point in our lives, right?

When people call for a twin flame psychic reading and say my twin flame is the runner and I am the chaser, we are being put in a very difficult position. This is just not our take on the twin flame journey. Simply put, we don’t believe twin flames run from each other, but toward each other and their twin flame mission. We are not here to change your minds, nor can you change ours. It’s not about the relationship, it’s about your mission as a couple.

  1. This makes sense but sometimes such a strong connection is just really frightening .speaking from experience. I adored him through and through and connected with him on such a deep level . I pushed him away as many times as I could. Another aspect of the journey is to teach you as well, I believe .. fear makes everyone act differently . I prefer people not speaking too matter of fact-ly about things, especially Spiritual things. I agree you should love and respect your special one, but when presented with someone who makes you face all your demons is tricky .
    But I’ll agree some are just unhealthily attached in toxic unrequited situations

    • twin flame relationships work better when both souls have gone through personal and spiritual growth so they are ready for the strong, intense connection

      • .. but until then or until fully understood what this connection is AND once have learned to manage emotions in light of that, a runner / chaser dynamic may play out. When my journey started many years ago, there was no twin flame label in existence nor was there YouTube and Google was not even close to what it is today. I had to figure it out on my own, which I did, but was a much painful process, with no guidance, support or even someone to talk to who would understand. I was spiritually awake and had my own spiritual practices to rely on for personal growth and understanding to give definition to what I was experiencing. Has had its pros and cons. My twin was on the same page I suppose, but less awoken and more fearful, couldn’t upset the pace of his 3D life, he had no guidance either. Therefore, 3-4 years into the journey, he married and had children with someone else, who fit his life and had a connection with that felt safe.

  2. I 100% agree with you and I’m so glad you wrote this. I feel like there is so much false information about TFs and people are holding on to regular relationships that have turned toxic because they want so badly to have a twin flame. Your twin will have the same undeniable desire to come together as you do! They would never ever hurt you intentionally .there is a feeling of complete safety and trust, and of beng home. And a deep down KNOWNG tha this person is the one. Also life will suddenly be in upheaval as circumstances start to change to accomadate the coming together of TFs and here is where things can get messy and painful. But the Twins them selves never doubt their bond..that is inconceivable! They are each other’s refuge and strength through it all, not the cause of great pain. It makes me so sad to see people profiting on the confusion and giving hope to people who clearly should be walking away from a partner who is done with the relationship or treating them poorly. Not everyone has or will meet their TF and that is perfectly OK! They come when you least expect it and you can not do ANYTHING to change the divine timing. I hope your message spreads far and wide and helps people let go of damaging concepts and people!
