  • Last night i was pondering about a relationship I’m in and weather i should walk away from it completely. We did the conventional boyfriend/girlfriend coupling in the beginning but there are times we need our own soul breaks from each other for work on ourselves. i was having a hard time though because seeing how much good and growth came from being together i was also juding it as its potential for us to be soul mates. How could we have brought so much to eachother and not be together in this way? Ah, i got it! If we are not soul mates it does not lessen the value of being brought together. It is a special union, but not a conventional one. I feel much more relaxed already.

  • Dear Christina,
    I have watched your videos on twin flames a few times. I think that as I progress on this journey I understand what you say more and more. Your explanation of this intense experience is the best I have heard. Especially the part about reaching non-attachment, I think this is the key to understanding and getting a handle on the connection. This week I had an opportunity to follow your advice and tell the man I recognize as my twin that he is free and that I want him to be happy with or without me in his life. It was amazing… it cleared all the baggage between us and freed both of us. Thank you Christina, you are wonderful. Love, Noah.

    • So happy for you Noah and glad that the videos have helped on your journey! Hugs

      Hi, Noah. I completely understand where you are coming from when you speak of NON-ATTACHMENT. I did the exact same “ritual” of Divinely releasing my Twin Flame, to God’s Will, and it so powerful, transforming, uplifting… yet very loving. I have never ever felt such a peace in a relationship by “letting go, letting God”.

  • Thank you for sharing excellent informations. Your site is so cool. I am impressed by the details that you have on this website. It reveals how nicely you perceive this subject.

  • Hey can you please make a video on kundalini shakti, cosmic energy and 7 chakras of human body.

  • Hi Christina,
    what if my twin flame is married? I understand non-attachment and unconditional love, but in this case how should I approach this relationship. we clicked as friends, I felt a sense of connection and familiarity with her. Any insights will be helpful. Thanks.

      Twin flames that have Union missions in this lifetime will see other relationships fall as part of the Union process.

  • Hi Christina,
    Does my twin flame misses me as much as I miss her even though we’re not together? Thanks


  • #askchristina

    Hi, i just started learning about twin flames and i THINK i may have found mine but its too complicated. Anyways, my question is, would they also know right away that we are twin flames? How do i explain this to my tf?

  • Dear Tina,
    Thank you very much for an excellent video/information. All your videos helped me a lot to heal myself.
    I have one question ?
    Kindly give some advice for a person in twin flame relation and having INFJ personality type. How can such a person serve the society as per his/her capabilities.

    Love and regards

  • Hey!
    Is it possible that you’ve never talked to a person and met them for a while but there is something about them that draws you to them. If this person lives very far from you and yet you can’t forget them….like they have been embedded in your heart and absolutely no one seems to make you feel the way they do.I’m really confused please help!riri

    It’s hard to find knowledgeable people about this topic, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  • Christina, I have a question and can’t find the question form you mention in some of the twin flame videos. I do see to use the #askchristina. My question is this: you mention that often the DM energy is the “runner” or initiator of separation (to use more favorable terms) and that often the DF is more aware of the twin flame dynamic while the other is sometimes not. Is it ever the other way around? I have been married for almost four years to a man with whom the connection was INTENSE from the beginning. He is a fundamental Christian but said he could not explain why it felt like we shared a soul when he didn’t believe in such things. Immediately, I started threatening a lot of his fundamental beliefs and together we deconstructed a lot of what we grew up believing that didn’t ring true. We got married and then he got sick. Brain tumor and autoimmune disease sick. His body was falling apart maybe from our intensity or all of the tearing down of beliefs so fast. His Mom believed that I was making him sick and did everything in her power to push me out of his life. So I left. I was the runner. I am awakened to the reality of our work and purpose here. He would say that I play more of the masculine role and he plays more of the feminine roll. But he still works within a very Christian framework and says he can’t be with me in a non traditional way even though it seemed to be, quite literally killing him. I have my own home, he has his where his Mom takes care of him and yet we are still very connected and work together as writers. The connection is extreme but I have set the boundary that I can’t have a traditional relationship with him since his Mom is involved and I believe she keeps him stuck in the beliefs and paradigms that need torn apart. I’m not really needing advice based on our specific dynamic but my question is more general. How often do you see the DM awakened before the DF energy is while still being the runner? Or maybe I am DF in our relationship even though sometimes this expresses in more of a wild woman energy than often thought of with feminine energy? Also, my astrological profile shows 50/50 female masculine split. I feel that. His is balanced 50/50 as well. Could this contribute to the confusion of who fills the DF and DM energy? Can you go deeper into the DM DF energy balance with twin flames? Thanks!
