This story comes from one of our early community members, Zelda.

The start of my story is probably one a lot of us can relate to. Met a boy. I Fell head over heels. Nothing else compared and oh my god was the physical stuff something else.

We just… clicked. And it happened at the time of my life when I wasn’t expecting anything to happen. It was a simple Bumble date to pass the time.

Things moved quickly. We got involved and moved in together during COVID. Yes, it was incredibly quick, but with lockdown rules we couldn’t see each other otherwise and we both agreed. If it didn’t work, we’d find out fast. If it did… we could spend time together.

We saw it as a gamble, but it paid off.

The stupid thing is, we had a year of mostly lockdowns on and off. We were great together. Things were fine.

Then out of nowhere, we were separated. I don’t really want to get into this part of my story. It wasn’t a fun 6 months. He completely ghosted me and I think I spent about a week just refreshing his IG page.

I had never heard the term ‘twin flame’ before. Hadn’t considered myself spiritual. If anything… I was probably the opposite. I am pragmatic and logical so this energy just threw me. Nothing like a relationship has ever been.

Luckily I found myself with a community of people who did understand all this. I saw weird number patterns, which I Googled… and eventually understood what I was supposed to be doing.

After months of wallowing and trying to treat it like a normal breakup (a VERY intense one) I started to actually listen to the advice I was getting. The moment I brought that focus to ME instead of HIM it was like a switch. Or an earthquake really.

We seemed to switch roles almost immediately and he became the chaser while I just kept on focusing on myself. Not in a selfish way (at least, I don’t want to think so), but I think this is the right thing to do. We are talking again, he already wants to try moving back in together.

I don’t know what the right thing to do is but I don’t think we’re ready yet. I’ve been working on myself but I don’t think he is open to the spiritual side of the journey yet.

My intuition told me that it was important for both of us to be on the same wavelength before we could truly reunite. So, I hesitated to jump back into our old living arrangements.

Instead, I proposed a different approach.

We have started to spend more time together but at a slower pace. Giving both of us some breathing room. Sometimes this is hard trying to stay patient when I know I could call him and rush back into what we had before.

We shared our thoughts and experiences from the time apart, discussing the concept of twin flames and spirituality. At first, he was skeptical, but I think he’s starting to open up to the idea.

We started going to workshops, meditations, and healing sessions together, and I could see a change in his energy as he embraced the spiritual side. I think he likes it really.

I’m proud of him. Proud of both of us. I don’t know what’s to come and how close (or far) we are from union but I’m seeing signs of something in the air.

One day, as we sat by the riverbank watching the sunset, he turned to me and said, “You know, I never thought I’d be this open to spirituality, but I can’t deny that it has changed my life for the better. I’m so grateful for this journey we’re on.”

I just smiled.
