If the twin flame journey wasn’t intensive enough already, we also go through the Dark Night of the Soul (DNOTS).

You might have heard the term already, but why does it happen? How can you spot the signs? What should you do when it happens?

What is a Dark Night of the Soul for Twin Flames?

I went through the DNOTS. For me it was scary in the sense that I felt like I was losing my mind. I visually ish saw my world blow up above my head. Love life, work life, and soul life. Almost like 3D puzzle pieces. They just floated there. And I realized, right then and there, that I had been creating my own chaos my whole life. My twin flame literally brought me home to myself, and she doesn’t even know or do anything. The pieces of my life are now , mostly, being placed where they belong. Divine timing is amazing.

Some stories paint the DNOTS as something to be afraid of, but it really presents a real opportunity for your twin flame path.

It’s an important milestone for your spiritual journey. It can happen multiple times, but each time will help deepen your relationship with yourself as well as your mirror soul.

Whenever we talk about speeding up the twin flame journey, we always talk about the process of healing old wounds.

The purpose of the Twin Flame Dark Night of the Soul is to help you evolve spiritually, shedding light on the wounds you still need to heal to become your best, most healed, and most powerful version of yourself.

Doing what you need to do to prepare yourself for union with your twin.

It’s a process that pushes you to face your deepest fears and insecurities and confront your heaviest karmic debts. It’s not an easy journey, but it’s necessary for spiritual growth and self-improvement.

We call it a ‘night,’ but the actual timeline can vary a bit for everyone. Consider it a moment in time of spiritual development, healing and upheaval.

Really anyone can go through this kind of moment, but it’s especially turbulent for mirror souls as your twin flame goes through the same development. It’s an important moment for both of you, but this mirrored energy can make it especially turbulent.

Remember! The Dark Night of the Soul is not a punishment but a process of purification and growth.

It’s a journey that leads to a deeper understanding of yourself and your spiritual purpose. It’s a challenging path, but one that can lead to profound transformation and enlightenment.

One that can lead to union.

Advice for Going Through the DNOTs (And Making It Work For You)

The universe doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle, but there are some things you can do to make your own DNOTs easier.

And therefore speed up your path to union.

  • Embrace the opportunity. See the DNOTS as the opportunity it is to further your path. As a twin flame, your soul is yearning for this. Your higher self knows that this could be the key to unlocking your future. Don’t fight against it out of fear.
  • Stay open to communication. If possible, maintain open lines of communication with your twin flame (and your twin flame telepathy is probably heightened at this time anyway). This doesn’t mean you have to be in constant contact, but expressing your feelings and experiences can help both of you navigate this journey.
  • Allow feelings to surface. The DNOTS can expose feelings that you had been burying without knowing it. You need to embrace this tidal wave of intense emotions. Feelings of loneliness, sadness, guilt, helplessness, worthlessness, anger, abandonment, grief, and meaninglessness may wash over you. This can be a scary and disheartening experience. Everything might seem out of sync, and your emotions may feel like they’re spiraling out of control. But remember, this is all part of the process. As you navigate through this storm of emotions, you’ll begin to understand the true depth and breadth of the Dark Night of the Soul.
  • Trust the process. We often say this about the twin flame journey in general, but it also applies to the DNOTS itself. Remember that both the DNOTS and this separation phase are temporary. Trust in the process and in the deep bond between you and your twin flame. Believe that you will come out the other side stronger and more spiritually evolved.
  • Take some time for yourself. Talking to people about the twin flame experience can be hard at the best of times (outside of our twin flame forum, of course), but during the DNOTS, you need to be able to give yourself some space.

Signs of the Dark Night of the Soul

twin flame DNOTS

Remember! Signs on the twin flame journey are general rules of thumb – not rules. Your journey is going to be unique, and your DNOTS is especially so. Use these signs to help guide you, but let your intuition become

  1. Intense Emotional Turmoil: You might find yourself experiencing a rollercoaster of emotions, from deep sadness to intense anger, often without a clear cause. This can happen to twin flames in general through emotions mirroring through your unspoken bond, but this will feel different. It will come from within.
  2. Disconnection: You may feel a sense of disconnection from some parts of your life, feeling as though they no longer resonate with you. Things that no longer serve you might no longer hold your interest.
  3. Existential Crisis: You might start questioning the meaning and purpose of life and your place in the universe. You might start questioning things that were taken for granted before.
  4. Physical Discomfort: Unexplained physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, or chronic pain can signify the Dark Night of the Soul.
  5. Isolation: You may strongly desire to withdraw from social activities and spend time alone. I know we said this is ideal for your DNOTS but learn to recognize why it’s happening.
  6. Intense Dreams or Nightmares: You might experience vivid dreams or nightmares, which could be your subconscious processing your spiritual journey. Your twin flame will often appear in these dreams to help talk you through it.
  7. Synchronicities: You may start noticing patterns or coincidences in your life that seem to guide you toward healing and growth. Twin flame number patterns are probably the most common you’ll see in this period.
  8. Heightened Sensitivity: You might become more sensitive to your surroundings, including people’s emotions, noises, or even the energy of certain places.
  9. Facing Your Shadows: You will find yourself confronting your deepest fears, insecurities, and past traumas. This is the entire point of the DNOTS, and learning to further your twin flame journey means facing these wounds that need healing.
  10. A Deep Yearning for Something More: Despite the challenges and discomfort, you might feel a deep longing for this transformation, a sense that this journey is necessary for your spiritual growth. Twin flames often go through this early on, feeling drawn toward their twin, but this will feel outside of your relationship with them.
  11. Experiencing Ego Death: This is a profound and transformative process where you let go of your ego identity and embrace your higher self. It can be a challenging and even scary process, but it’s a significant sign of deep spiritual transformation.
  12. Feeling a Sense of Surrender: After a period of struggle and resistance, you might reach a point of surrender, where you let go of trying to control your journey and instead trust in the process and the universe.
