Mixed signals cause confusion in the soulmate and twin flame experience. Soulmate and twin flames relationships are hard enough to navigate as it is. So when you toss in mixed signals between them, things can go really crazy.
SO WHY THE MIXED SIGNALS?
The reason soulmates and twin flames send mixed signals is not always intentional. They don’t mean to drive their partner crazy or put them on edge. Often they’re trying to work through their own acceptance of the soul connection. No one is fully prepared to experience a soul connection, regardless of what they think. There’s no previous experience to really draw from or learn in advance how to navigate the journey.
Talking to friends or family is not really an option. If they haven’t had a soulmate or twin flame experience themselves, how could they really understand? There is no way to know what you’re going through unless they’ve been there.
If you already think you may be losing your mind you may be afraid to share what you’re going through. No one wants to be ashamed and many fear judgement from others. Some people have to work out what they are having issues with regarding their connection. Until they do they can’t properly articulate anyone what they are feeling and thinking.
THE ADJUSTMENT PERIOD
There is an adjustment period that starts when twin flames and soulmates meet. It begins for both at the same time, but they fully accept their connection at different times. This is one of the main reasons for mixed signals between them. When a partner is going through the adjustment period, they often flip flop between embracing the connection and rejecting the connection.
So one day (or one minute, or one hour, depending on the individual involved) they may be going with the flow, and sending out positive signals. They are talking about their emotions, being very open, discussing the future of the relationship and how happy they are. Then the next day, it’s completely different.
They may seem withdrawn both in their emotions and with their words. Where yesterday they spoke of how they want to spend every waking moment together, now they say they may not have the time to see one another for a while.
Did the feelings change? Did what they want change? No. When you’re on the receiving end of mixed signals like this, the first thing you need to do is not panic. Don’t let the mixed signals you are receiving have a domino affect on you.
FEELINGS DIDN’T CHANGE IN AN INSTANT
Understand first that feelings don’t change for anyone overnight. So let that go immediately. Second, although it’s tough, keep in mind this is a process your partner has to work though. They’re not doing this to hurt you. It’s their internal struggle they are dealing with.
This does not excuse them, mind you. It’s hard for some people to see a side of themselves they didn’t know existed. They may have never heard of soulmates or twin flames before or believed in them. They have no one to ask for guidance.
But how did they go from someone who can handle their emotions so well, to someone who’s emotions have gone off the charts? Why are they so out of control?
Well, they may be very cautious, because they’ve been hurt before. They need relationships to develop at a slower pace so they can build trust over time. Now they feel they’re head over heels with someone they just met and that is scary and uncomfortable.
They go back and forth between thoughts and feelings of this is great to this is the weirdest, scariest thing that has ever happened to me. So of course you’re going to get plenty of mixed signals from them. You’re going through your own acceptance journey so this can really throw you for a loop.
Please keep in mind that your journey of acceptance is yours and theirs is theirs. You can’t carry them along or force acceptance on them. They will not be able to deny the connection between the two of you forever. And that’s regardless of how many mixed signals they send you.
Eventually they will reach a point where they give in and give up fighting it. Every twin flame and soulmate reach a point where they accept the connection is real. What they both decide to do about it is another story.
