This is one of the first stories we featured on the Twin Flame Collective which came from an Anonymous reader.

After my morning meditation session, I asked the universe for a sign.

know I’m a twin flame. I know that union is out there waiting for me. It’s just hard to tell sometimes if he really is my twin flame or a karmic connection here to teach me something.

So I asked for a sign. Something big. Something obvious. Something that would leave no doubt in my mind that he is the one.

As I was getting dressed for the day, I wore a jumper that I never really wore anymore. I’m embarrassed to say it has a few too many holes, but I have a sentimental attachment. I wore it on our first date.

As I went about my day, I almost forgot I’d asked for a sign. I’ve been trying to limit how much time I spend on Instagram (because I know I’m just going to check his posts) but come lunchtime, I give myself five minutes.

And there it is.

He was wearing the same shirt he wore on our first date.

With the caption: Feeling nostalgic today, I think I’m missing something.

My heart skipped a beat. This couldn’t be just a coincidence. It was as if the universe had orchestrated this moment to give me the sign I had asked for. It was big, it was obvious, and it left no room for doubt.

This synchronicity was the confirmation I needed. It reminded me that the universe always listens and guides us, even in the most unexpected ways.

Despite the challenges and the uncertainty, I knew deep down that our connection was more than just a karmic lesson.

I did something I hadn’t allowed myself to do in a while. I sent him a DM and attached a photo of myself wearing the jumper, saying: “Funny, I’m feeling nostalgic today too. What are the odds?

As I hit send, my heart raced, but I felt an inner peace that I hadn’t experienced in a long time. I knew I had to take this leap of faith and trust the universe’s sign.

We started talking, catching up on each other’s lives and reminiscing about our past. The conversation flowed like it used to before he had to move away.

We’ve even made plans to meet up again, taking things one step at a time. It’s exciting and terrifying, but deep down, I know it’s what we both need.

I’m so immensely grateful for that sign I so desperately needed. I might have been getting less obvious ones all this time, but I wasn’t open to them.

If I had one piece of advice I learned from this, it would be to stay open to the universe’s guidance. Not to get wrapped up in your thoughts. No matter how difficult separation might be.

Trust that love is meant for you.

We’ve been asked not to include a name with this story, but if you’d like to offer advice, reply to this email, and we’ll pass it on. If you’d like to be featured here, you can always submit your own story (no matter where you are on the journey).

As for me, I couldn’t be more thrilled for you.

I’ve written a lot about external signs guiding us. I do think twin flames are more spiritually aware than 99.9%, and they probably are sent signs way more often than we think.

But being open to them is another thing entirely. And taking action on the sign is just fantastic.

I know this was a reader I’ve spoken to before. I know how hard they’ve been working, and I’m so excited to hear what comes next.
