As we continue our series into the spiritual phenomena of Twin Flames, in this article we will take a more targeted look at the physical similarities that are often noted in Twin Flame partnerships. It may sound completely bizarre that you could share physical characteristics with someone completely unrelated to you genetically. However, we will explore this and provide some insight into why and how this could be the case.
Many Twin Flames will be perceived to have physical similarities such as facial features like smiles. This is not a true physical likeness rather that each pair mirror each other’s micro-expressions such as how they smile. It is not a requirement that Twin Flames share physical similarities.
Do Twin Flames have similar faces?
Twin Flames are spiritual twins rather than physical twins. This means they do not share biological DNA so will never be true mirror images of each other. However, frequently people remark on what they perceive as similarities in appearance between Twin Flame partners.
This in reality is a culmination of shared tastes impacting things like fashion sense, meaning it is very likely Twin Flames will have a shared style. What some may perceive as similarities in facial features will in fact be similarities in things we can control such as how they smile, raise an eyebrow or express emotion through facial movements.
Bigger similarities around build and body type are again influenced by the shared interests that are always present in a Twin Flame relationship. If a Twin Flame pairing is particularly interested in active, outdoor pursuits then their bodies will reflect this in terms of muscular, lean builds. Equally, if a Twin Flame pairing is more sedentary, they may have larger builds.
While some Twin Flames may instantly recognize each other as appearing similar in facial appearance, others note this appears to grow and develop as they spend more time in each other’s company and soak up each other’s little micro-expressions.
What are the other similarities between Twin Flames?
Twin Flames may share some perceived physical similarities but given the intensity of this bond, it is often the emotional, psychological, and spiritual similarities that are most pronounced.
- Similar likes and dislikes
Twin Flames are two halves of the same whole, this is why even when they meet later in life. Despite having had different life experiences, they often exhibit scarily similar likes and dislikes. These can be fairly innocuous like preferences in clothing, food, and music, or equally can be more in-depth and relate to preferences in terms of spiritual ideals, philosophy, or the types of friendship groups they seek.
This makes for the cornerstone of a Twin Flame relationship and the feeling that you have found the “other half “of yourself. There is an easiness in agreeing to activities and pastimes due to the amount of mutually shared interests. Your Twin Flame will nearly always be happy with your movie pick or restaurant selection for example.
Commonly Twin Flames will exhibit extremely similar personality types and traits. They may both be reflective and caring for example or equally another pairing could be decisive and driven. In most Twin Flames there are subtle differences that align to support and enhance the other twin toward their full potential.
Less commonly Twin Flames can present with what can appear like polar opposite personalities. This is not an indication that they are not Twin Flames, rather while they both started out with a similar personality any trauma either party encountered before uniting may have caused their individual personality to develop differently. This can make for a more turbulent Twin Flame journey as both parties need to work harder to find their core unity.
This can result in some of the most intense and enduring Twin Flame unions though if one or both partners have experienced a life-altering trauma. The pure and spiritual connection with a kindred Twin Flame can nurture growth and spiritual enlightenment.
This is a good example of how Twin Flames are cosmically linked, how even when circumstances have occurred to alter individual life paths to make two individuals who on the surface may not appear compatible are drawn to each other in order to learn and grow together
Is it normal for Twin Flames to have a similar voice?
While you may not necessarily set out with the same vocal inflections or speech cadence as your Twin Flame, it appears this is another aspect that can align between the two. While it is completely possible that Twin Flames may not even start out with the same native language, once they meet and fall into their soul rhythm then there may be a sensation of talking to another version of yourself. The similarity is actually where you share similar turns of phrase, speed of speech, and word choices.
This will be subtle though, if you are female and your Twin Flame is male you will not suddenly start talking like a man, rather accent, inflection, and cadence of speech may become similar. This is a gradual process for some Twin Flames. However, some people have remarked that the similarities in speech were instantly recognizable and another factor that made them feel unified with their Twin Flame partner.
Do you feel your Twin Flame smile?
The link between Twin Flames is more than just a bond of friendship, it is a spiritual connection. Many Twin Flames report the phenomena of synchronicity, this means that their emotional states become intertwined, and they can share feelings and sometimes even thoughts.
There are anecdotal stories of Twin Flames, even those who may be separated by vast distances, being able to sense when the other is sad or happy. A way of letting your Twin Flame know they are in your thoughts is to send out spiritual energy of smiling and happiness. Many Twin Flames report feeling this expression of energy and inexplicitly find themselves smiling or even laughing.
Do you feel your Twin Flames’ fear or sadness?
Just as a Twin Flame can tune into positive or happy energy in their other half, they can also link in with some of the less pleasant emotions. This is particularly relevant when Twin Flames may be separated due to conflict in the relationship. A separation is not unusual over the course of the relationship but can be incredibly emotionally turbulent.
You can read more about the ups and downs of Twin Flame separations in our article “Do Twin Flames Separate and Come Back?” to understand how and why they happen but it is safe to say it is traumatic for both partners. Often a separation may be initiated by one partner who feels they need some time to work on themselves. Unfortunately, that leaves behind another partner who may feel completely bereft at being separated from their other spiritual half. This means that the other Twin Flame may be plagued by niggling feelings of sadness as despite the distance they continue to pick up on their counterpart’s feelings of sadness and loss.
The good news is most Twin Flames manage to re-establish their relationship after a period of separation often making their bond even stronger.
