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? 



My false twin flame came in exactly the way the article describes in some instances- to break off a karmic relationship. I learned heavy lessons in this karmic relationship and the attachment was deep. My false twin flame came in and swept me off my feet- into dreamy distraction. The shallow attributes that our primal instincts hook onto were there. He was gorgeous and we had a lot of synchronistic similarities. With his help, I was able to move on from the guilt and shame that plagued me from my karmic relationship. I looked into that guilt and shame with a lot of inner child work.
The false twin flame made me feel anxious and full of butterflies. I was reckless like a teenager. I put the hope of my future into him. He essentially wanted nothing but a friends-with- benefits situation and I really had to question my self worth. I made self love the forefront of my healing. How would my perceived “twin flame” not want me? This deep dive into myself was essential. The virus hit and my false twin flame was no where to be found- without a hookup, he didn’t bother to explore the depths of who I was.
I came into acceptance that I was the love that I was always looking for…
and lo and behold… that’s when my real twin flame came in.
He fits me like a glove and I question sometimes if this is the truest love of my life. I have been programmed to ache and pain in love- but he gives none of that. I am so grateful and scared for this journey. I have a partner to walk with me and not on top of me. It’s been a real awakening. Good luck to all of you. Don’t psyche yourself out.

Sorry but not everyone is a soulmate. We are interconnected but that disregards the importance of soulmates. A false twin flame would also not last a few days, a false twin will last YEARS of your life. If the false twin is the next most important relationship to your true twin then how would it only last a few days?


I am in an on-off emotional and partly physical relationship with my Twin. There is an obsessive side to it for both of us, but also unconditional love. The eye contact is crazy. I have never been able to look someone in the eye like that before. And our chakras, which are connected in several places, always calm down when we are together. When apart there is intense pull. We experience the pull in different chakras. There are/were other relationships involved and sometimes I find myself overthinking the True/False Twin dilemma. I’m the head person, she the heart person. Any thoughts?


i met my false twin in 2018..the connection lasted for about a year before I made an exit plan since it was draining me of my energy rather than uplifting me. my emotions went out of my control .i didn’t want to feel that way as I could see the person was a bad human being. It was more of a karmic connection since I was crying every day. it drove me crazy since the depth of connection was only felt by me. and on an intellectual level also I didn’t want that person in my life as he was nowhere close to a gentleman. to get over the separation, I learnt and practised meditation techniques(it was designed to activate the ajna chakra or the third eye) and it helped me a lot to regain my mental peace and focus.

Does every twin flame have a false twin before meeting their real twin? And does every false twin have a real twin. If I were the false twin would I have a real twin? Or am I just the catalyst for the person I am with before they meet their twin? I think many people would like an answer to this.
