How Does The Counterfeit "False" Twin Help You Get To Union With Your Twin?

Repost from 2014



Or are they even a thing?

There's a lot of speculation on this subject; people who say they've experienced a false or counterfeit twin flame swear it's a thing. Those who haven't experienced it say it's mere speculation, or just a really, really intense connection with another person that people put way too much emphasis on. 

The Counterfeit, or False Twin is said to play a very important role in the reunion of, and in the connection between Twin Flames. It's said that all twin flames have a counterfeit aka false twin, whether or not they know it. While all soul mate connections prepare us for "the one," some more than others, some there is only one false twin. Others say there can be multiple "false twins." (If that were the case, I suppose every ex I've ever had would be a false twin?) 

Everyone seems to agree though, that everyone we meet on any level is considered a soul mate. Whether we pass them once on the street or have a long romantic relationship with them, we are all one another's soul mates. Everything and everyone is interconnected. Okay...

It's also said that as we enter Ascension and are activated and awaken spiritually, we begin to be able to connect with others on an extraordinarily deep level, like nothing we have ever experienced before. Cool...

Oftentimes, activation begins slowly and we find we are deeply connected to many, but a soul mate or twin flame often comes easily as far as connection. Cool...

This is often accompanied by the symptoms of awakening. Suddenly we find ourselves experiencing unconditional love and a never-before-seen intensity in our chakra connection with another soul on a level so deep that it creates an intensity like no other, that is simply indescribable in words. Wow, cool...

It's said that some find that they feel as though they complete each other and some even say that a sense of intuitive connection almost like a kind of telepathy exists. Neat-o...

It's also said that there's even aspects of the traditional twin flame template; push-pull, signs and symptoms and syncs galore. This is why the term False Twin rings so correct in the minds for so many people. The connection has all the makings of a twin flame reunion and even looks like a twin flame connection in the journey aspect - except it's another type of connection.

"But in my heart I can feel it!" Of course you can. Otherwise, it would be called something else other than False Twin. It would be called the "really passionate soulmate-like-me connection" instead of the false or counterfeit twin.

It's further stated that we may have already met and noted our counterfeit twin, or we may not have met them yet. And, that we may connect with them before our reunion or after we've already met our twin. Cool...

Additionally, people say that the false twin prepares us in amazing ways for the true twin...

Sometimes, the false twin serves as the catalyst to end longstanding situations to make room for the true twin to enter. Sometimes the false twin aids in activating the process of ascension and awakening. I've even heard the false twin can jumpstart internal healing processes to pave the way for the twin flame journey. As unique and painful (and pleasurable) as the false twin may be, it's said to be a very important connection. Again, cool... 

They say that like real twins, the counterfeit twin is not perfect, nor is it a perfect relationship. To imply perfection would be inhuman. All people are human. Both twin flames and false twins are both perfect and imperfect in their own respect.


Some people believe in false twins, others do not. If you believe in false twin flames, the false twin can also be called the "counterfeit twin" and we're said to connect with them at different junctures in our lives. Some are said to meet prior to embarking on the twin flame journey with their real twins while others meet a false twin during their twin flame journey or even after they're together in a relationship. 


1. Activation of internal healing processes, inner growth and discovering the higher self.

2. Activation of one's ascension process (personal learning/growth)

3. Release of old attachments. (Finally able to drop old relationships.)

4. Learning about one's self and connection in general.

The false twin can be so intense that it causes those who have never even heard of twin flame as a concept to embark on researching the subject. 

There is also a lot of speculation about the relationships false twin connections might have. They say it can be as brief as a few days, or can take years to process through, depending on the person and the twin flame couple in question. I've also read people say that much healing, learning, processing, purging and development happen when one meets their false twin flame. Each person is unique and thus, each false twin couple is also equally unique. I've also heard many say they didn't realize who their false twin was, until they'd gone through the relationship itself and looked back in hindsight. 

Have you met your false twin? What did you contribute and receive from the relationship? What was it like?

I am so blown away right now. This makes so much more sense. I came acros twin flames so many years ago. My ex I knew we were a super strong connection. We were together for 10 years and it was a crazy 10 years and he was my catalyst for my spiritual awakening but I thought it was because he was my twin but now the false twin flame is way more fitting.


Holy moly macaroni (I’m trying really hard to not cuss because after reading this, there’s been a lot of expletives)!

I didn’t want to believe my false twin flame was my false twin flame but everything here is dead on and it’s freaking me out.

We both felt an intense connection with each other immediately. I even felt the way we met was unique which is what a twin flame reunion is. Right away, we were telling each other how much we loved each other and how we knew we were meant to be together. Now, I’m no lovesick teenager, I’m a 40-year-old single mom and have had many relationships but none that resembled anything like this. Our lives paralleled each other in so many ways but one spot where we weren’t on the same page was when we met he was going through a separation from his wife and I experienced this 5 years ago. After my separation, I fell into a lot of meaningless sex and it took me years to heal and start practicing mindfulness and compassion. He is is where I was 5 years ago, which is why we never consummated the relationship despite coming close every time we met. We were drawn to each other like magnets, kissing him felt so familiar and so natural. Holding him felt this way too.

He just ended it with me a few hours ago saying he “loves me too much to get in my way”. It hurts, it really f**king hurts because I still love and care for him but I know that he’s not my twin flame. I know my twin flame would work through issues with me.

I do feel he is a soulmate and I know I will always feel connected to him and want the best for him. I am grateful for him because he showed me blind spots in my life where I need to still grow. I, in turn, helped him leave a marriage that wasn’t working. He is in a deep dark place right now and I really hope he can pull through because he is a beautiful soul, I won’t be the one to help in his ascension though.


Its been a tough year, because I haven’t been this spiritual before, besides believing in Jesus or God. However, its pushed me deeper into it. Tonight, I laid out my major arcana cards and positioned everything like our flame twin journey. 1000% on par, between us two. Where I started as the Empress and her the Emperor, I am working toward the opposite and same with her. Its weird, indeed.


Currently in an uncomfortable situation as I am not sure if my TF who i’ve known for nearly ten years in my real or false TF.
they have caused so much pain in my life but there is a lot of love and connection yet i am starting to think it could be attachment/obsession.
It’s hard to let go because of the memories, the things we wanted to do. I fear letting go but I also know I should.

I became aligned with my false twin flame 8months Before we met soci could help him end a karmic relationship….an he activated my heart chakra so I could heal an learn an grow ….after that I had soulmates pouring in but they weren’t here long ….more to prepare for my twin…he wasn’t in my life long but …..but I thought he was my twin for over a year and it was draining ….big learning experience…then I met my real twin …an it was random ….not any way I thought I’d met him ….
