Common Life Lessons for Twin Flames and Soulmates

Common life lessons for twin flames and soulmates are a requirement of the relationship.

Many clients ask us what lessons they must learn because they want to speed the process. Unfortunately, there’s no cheat sheet for soulmate or twin flame lessons. The universe wants each partner to take a long, hard look at themselves and tackle each lesson as it arrives.

The lessons don’t come all at once, they come gradually, with time. So the specific lessons are different for each spiritual partner. But there seem to be a few common life lessons we can share with you. These common life lessons come up in many spiritual relationships.



The first lesson we will address is acceptance of the connection. Many soulmates and twin flames have trouble with the connection. They freak out. This often causes one of them to run, due to the intensity of the connection.

They often deny it verbally and with their actions. They may try to break the connection. Also, they will act out to test the connection. At some point, for the relationship to move forward on a higher level, they must accept the connection. When that happens, the person has evolved spiritually.

The counterpart to this common life lesson is the runner creates a chaser. When a soulmate or twin flame runs, the other decides to chase them. They want to talk to them to convince them of their connection. They believe they have the power to get the runner to stop running. That is almost never the case.

The only thing that accomplishes is the runner runs ever further away.

Not a good idea at all. Both the runner and the chaser have the same lesson. That lesson is to have faith in the connection. If they both do, neither would have to run or chase.


The second common life lesson is learning how to properly deal with the connection. A spiritual connection can be both a blessing and a curse. When you accept the connection, you should have faith in it. You shouldn’t fear it. You need to handle the connection coming from a place of strength, not weakness. To clarify, you can’t let your fears of losing your soulmate or twin flame allow lower level behaviors.

If you accept the connection as a spiritual one, why would you think the universe would support either one of you doing the wrong things? Disrespecting each other, or allowing yourself to be disrespected won’t be rewarded. So don’t allow fear to keep you from enforcing boundaries and standing up for yourself.

Also, don’t think you can get away with bad behavior or that your partner will always let you get away with it. You don’t want to learn that lesson the hard way. The universe doesn’t want either of you to hurt one another within the connection. Nor does it want you to accept being hurt for no reason.

Another common life lesson is that both partners have to be open to change. This is a new kind of relationship. You can’t bring your old behaviors and insecurities along with you. Your past needs to be left in the past. And you have to let go of bad relationship patterns of behavior you learned along your journey.

The universe gave you a soulmate or twin flame so you could have something better. This shouldn’t be same old craziness from your past relationships. It’s not up to the universe to do it for you. It will take some soul-searching on your part to keep yourself in check.


Another really common life lesson is to learn balance. It’s common for one soulmate or twin flame to be more evolved and grounded than the other. Often when one is further ahead on their spiritual path they assume their partner is on the same level. So they can go overboard with attention, excuses and enabling. This will prevent their partner from learning their lessons.

You can’t learn their lessons for them, and you can’t coddle them too much either.

Yes you can be supportive, but you shouldn’t lose sight of yourself . Don’t revolve your life around your soulmate or twin flame while they’re learning their lessons. Focus on yourself. The relationship should be about the two of you, not only one of you. Otherwise, the relationship becomes very one-sided.

This imbalance creates a whole new series of lessons to be learned on both sides. Save yourself the time, energy and effort. You’re not their parent, their teacher or their cheat sheet. Check your desire for control at the door. It’s hard not to be impatient. We understand that. However, your impatience more than likely will just make this learning process longer.

There are as many different lessons as there are spiritual couples, but these are a few that seem to affect most partners.

What lessons are you learning with your soulmate or twin flame? We would love to see your experiences below in our comments section.
