Questions and Answers with Elizabeth Clare Prophet
Twin Flames, Soul Mates and the Karma that Separates Us, Part 1
You can make the call to God, “Show me who my twin flame is.” But the development of your inner faculties, of your inner knowing, comes through decreeing, through giving the violet flame. It's the most efficacious means on the planet of spiritual development. It will be the crown of all other paths, meditations, forms, asanas you have been through. And you will notice it if you're diligent with it.
Question: Can you tell me how it could work out so neatly that everyone has a perfect love? Where did this person come from and what is their relationship to us?
Elizabeth Clare Prophet answers:
The twin flame, or perfect love, is born out of the original white-fire ovoid. This is an ovoid of light in which you are created in the Central Sun, the highest concentration of pure Spirit in the universe. God takes the ovoid and he makes out of it two spheres of light. And each sphere looks like the causal body in the upper portion of the Chart of Your Real Self. So imagine this chart twice.
Descending from these spheres into Matter, then, come forth the souls that are the counterpart of the Spirit spheres. They are called twin flames because they came out of the original single ovoid. The Electronic Presence of each soul is the exact duplicate of the other. And when they descend into form, one assumes the positive or masculine and one assumes the negative or feminine polarity.
Now, that ovoid has a unique pattern. It is an electronic blueprint. Only you and your twin flame have it. You have it in the Spirit. You have the divine image in which you were made. It's the same image. No one else in the whole cosmos can claim this oneness with you because you were only born once, spiritually.
So we all started out in golden ages long ago with the perfect person, the twin flame, but then we started making karma.
Karma is energy/consciousness in action; the law of cause and effect and retribution. Also called the law of the circle which decrees that whatever we do comes full circle to our doorstep for resolution. Paul said, “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Newton observed that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The law of karma necessitates the soul's reincarnation until all karmic cycles are balanced. Thus, from lifetime to lifetime man determines his fate by his actions, including his thoughts, feelings, words, and deeds.
We descended into the lower octaves, we were separated from our twin flame. We lost that physical manifestation of the divine counterpart in heaven, and then we began creating obligations with other people.
And this is why embodiment after embodiment we are married to different people. Some may be soul mates, some karmic relationships. And hopefully we make the best of it and share a love that will achieve a particular purpose and also balance karma. The law of karma demands we go back and fulfill our responsibilities first. It is always your first obligation. It can take you away from your twin flame for lifetimes.
And the goal is to balance that karma, become purified on the Path of the Holy Spirit, attain reunion with God and the twin flame, and climb back up the ladder of life to the Source whence you came. And that is the long story of the lost Word being found again.
Could you clarify the difference between a twin flame and a soul mate? You seem to be saying that if you can't unite with your twin flame in this lifetime, in the meantime you might find a soul mate. And I thought that they were just different expressions for the same concept.
Elizabeth Clare Prophet answers:
A soul mate is a person with whom you may have worked for many centuries on the same mission or the same initiation of the chakras—some parallel path of soul development. And even though there may be a great attraction and bond between soul mates, fundamentally, in the ultimate sense, you could define it more as a brother/sister relationship, even though soul mates have great marriages and a great union of hearts.
There is that sense of “we're comrades, we're pilgrims on the path together, and what we're doing has to be done together.” You may come together for several lifetimes, and you may feel a great tie.
But if you really meditate at inner levels, you know that that relationship doesn't go as high or is not as profound as the one with the person who is your direct counterpart—the twin flame you have known as your other self from the first moment of your creation in the Great Central Sun.
You have only one twin flame. But you may have brothers and sisters in various places whom you're working with.
Let's say in this lifetime your choice as well as your assignment is to master music. You'll probably be assembled with many musicians, and you may find someone who is very much a co-worker and a companion with whom you can share not only your love of harmony but also a real soul communion on that wavelength and chakra of one of the seven rays.
And there is a blessing that comes to your endeavor from the I AM Presence of both twin flames—your twin flame and that person's twin flame. So that's what a soul mate is—someone you can truly love and respect and share with.
A soul-mate relationship has to do with the seat-of-the-soul chakra—that chakra just above the base. The connection is one of parallel and mutual evolution rather than origin.
It is a blessed experience to have someone who is a friend (someone you can trust who also trusts you) with whom to share a true commitment to a common cause as well as tender devotion.
Is the age of Aquarius a time when you're more likely to meet your twin flame? Or, in other words, is the possibility of joining forces by meeting your twin flame, which you did with Mark Prophet, the kind of power that is needed right now in the world?
Elizabeth Clare Prophet answers:
Well, it is a very propitious time for meeting one's twin flame because it is the desire of the Great White Brotherhood in sponsoring your souls on the path of soul liberation that you should be joined with your counterpart for a greater realization of true freedom to be who you are in God—in your joint causal bodies.
(The Great White Brotherhood is a spiritual order of Western saints and Eastern masters cooperating from the ascended octave with embodied disciples and adepts. The word “white” refers to the aura (halo) of white light that surrounds them, not to race.)
Also, because we're at the conclusion of the Piscean age, we're supposed to be balancing our karma. And so, we may go through karmic marriages; we may go through the marriage with the soul mate.
The end of Pisces is the time of balancing a lot of karma, and that's why people's thinking about relationships has radically changed in recent decades—because people have had a need to interact and to settle old scores and to keep on searching to find the highest complementary expression of their being in the quest of the spiritual path.
There is a heightened intensity of interest in twin flames today because that is the relationship that enables you to fulfill the greater portion of your fiery destiny. God knows this. God is sponsoring the true relationships of twin flames and soul mates today because in the beginning God made us to love one another as He first loved us.
What is the first step you can take toward finding your twin flame?
Elizabeth Clare Prophet answers:
You must first seek the union with your I AM Presence and Christ Self. That is the inner polarity. That is the greatest, most profound and blissful union that you can experience. It is the goal of the Path.
When you attain union with your Divine Reality, you also are coming into the closest union with the white fire core of your being through which you find the one and only one who was there with you in the beginning. Your relationship with your twin flame first began in this giant ovoid of white fire that became twain—two spheres of God-identity.
Now, you can develop a polarity in the human with your twin flame, with a soul mate or with anyone. You have had experiences in many lifetimes which make you feel attracted to people you may meet throughout your life.
But the only polarity that is of the fiery ovoid, that Electronic Presence, is that of your twin flame. And the profoundness of the oneness of twin flames is in the very depths of God's being.
So the real path and the real search is for union with God, because the reason we are separated from our twin flame in time and space is that through our incarnations in the physical plane, we've departed from our original Oneness and gotten entangled in other relationships, other karma.
So you may feel a longing and a loneliness in a crowd because the other half of your spiritual being is nowhere to be found.
But, you see, you can be sitting next to your twin flame and not even know it, because from having gone forth from the octaves of light and being separated for so many long thousands of years, you don't even recognize one another through the veils of karma. And that is the great tragedy of searching and searching and not realizing that the twin flame is, mystically, oneself.
And if one hasn't found oneself spiritually, one is not going to recognize that “One alone, to be my own,” as the song goes.
Now, if your twin flame is ascended, already one with his/her I AM Presence, you tend to feel more complete because the twin flame has achieved the divine oneness.
If your twin flame is your equal in attainment and in embodiment, you may seek that one.
If your twin flame has lesser attainment and more worldly ties, you may find a great dichotomy in yourself—that you love the Path but you have to dive into the astral sea because somewhere in all of that temporal and illusory condition is the other half of yourself whom you feel dedicated to rescue and to raise up.
