What is the Difference Between TWIN FLAMES and SOUL MATES? (Christmas Version…)

(Note: If you are going to judge the whole storie… please read the whole thing.)

Over the years Santa Claus, up at the North Pole got used to receiving requests for the perfect partner for Christmas, you know, a boyfriend or girlfriend for the holiday season.

One day he said,”Everyone always wants the perfect boyfriend or girlfriend for the holidays! What is worse is sometimes they request a soul mate and other times they request a twin flame. I myself don’t know what that is!!!” He turned around and looked at his partner elf named Elfie, a cute female elf.

Santa then said,”Why Elfie, we are getting lots of requests for soul mates and twin flames for Christmas… it looks as though no one quite knows the difference, and I don’t know which one they really want!!! Go ahead and write out the proper definitions!

“But Santa,” Elfie said, “How will I know the proper definitions without having met my own soul mate or twin flame?” Santa said, “Write what is true in your heart!”

Elfie sat down to draft an explanation on a piece of scroll parchment:

Take 1: Twin Flames and Soul Mates, A Partial Explanation

Which do YOU want for Christmas??? A twin flame or a soul mate???

Soul mates: are notches on your heart. They are “steps” towards your true self!!! They light your chakras up… halfway! Not only that, but they light up your whole house during the holiday season, like those old Christmas lights outside your house! Only problem is, sometimes … they don’t work!

They may have a few flickering light bulbs that may need replacing… but don’t… and do!!! But don’t… It feels like the light bulbs are all working perfectly!!!… until they aren’t! One is out! When it stops flickering… you adjust it! It might start up again…will it??? The SUSPENSE is a THRILL! It is keeping things ALIVE!!! That is why soul mates are great fun!!! 

Twin flames: are… something else… Twin flames are … YOU… from the other side! Twin flames light you up… like a CHRISTMAS TREE!!! … that stays bright and shiny all through the holiday season.

Santa looked at Elfie said, “You need to rewrite this… I am beginning to think that Rudolph put you up to this. Something isn’t quite right.”

Elfie took up her feathered pen… and crossed the entire thing out… “Let’s try that again…” she said, “I guess neither of those seem quite right!!! Oh no!”

Underneath her previous attempt, she wrote down the following:

Twin Flame and Soul Mate Definitions Take 2: A … Light Bulb Analogy Improved!… Accuracy: UNKNOWN

Soul mates: You two are a pair of dim lights! You enjoy romantic evenings with “dim lighting.” You crave dim light! You love candlelight, cookies and milk! You don’t want your relationship to be in the spotlight, just by the fireplace, with hot chocolate! You WANT some things to remain a … mystery… like Santa! Perhaps a few chapters of you life are private between you both? Your past? Dim lights are for you!!!

Twin Flames: Are ready for BRIGHT LIGHT! You thought you could hide that… very intricate mole on your… anyways… you can’t! You both got bored of dim light! You both need BRIGHT LIGHT! You know there is NO LIMIT to how many Christmas lights are on your tree! You want EVERYTHING for Christmas! You don’t hide NAUGHTY items from the NAUGHTY list!!! You are okay with who you are!!! Everything about your partner is perfect! The WHOLE PACKAGE!!! The moles are gifts! And the great part is… you still like candlelight dinners, and dims lights…sometimes…!

…Santa read the piece very carefully… and said… chuckling and covering his eyes with his palms, “sweet elf… I foresee a few errors with this interpretation… There are a few contradictions! Try again!

She picked up her pen with exhaustion, and wrote:

 Take 3: Holy Night, Holy Light, Holy Sight!!! (Christmas Scenario)

Soul mates: Imagine you and your mate are looking for Christmas tree lights at the store, for your tree of course. You want red, all red lights! Your partner wants GREEN, all green lights!!! You COMPROMISE! It feels great! Isn’t it great to COMPROMISE!!! You get… half green and half red lights! You’re happy… and sad… but then in the end… HAPPY!!!


Twin Flames: Imagine you and your mate are looking for Christmas tree lights… you both want the BEST you can find! You act like you both want different ones… One partner really wants ROUND lights… with a curvy shape. The other partner wants BRIGHT lights!!! As bright and clear as can be!!! You approach the issue from different sides! You get a pleasant surprise… when reality hits… THAT YOU BOTH WANT THE SAME ONES!!!… BRIGHT, CURVY LIGHTS!!! It’s a match!!!

Santa picked up the explanation and read it carefully. He whispered, “Elfie… I think you belong in the lighting department or maybe in Christmas decor? Do you think this is going to help people with their Christmas wish lists???

Elfie replied, “I am not sure… but I know it will get them thinking about Christmas early!!! Besides Santa. This is hard! How am I EVER going to accurately explain the difference between these two???”

Santa replied, “Elfie, humans are not like you and me, and they are certainly nothing like light bulbs! He then turned to her and said… keep revising…

…oh and Elfie, if you think… Twin Flames will ever see eye to eye on Christmas tree lights…You’re wrong! I just cannot believe in this stuff! I have NEVER seen two people agree on Christmas tree lights. I am sorry Elfie, but I can’t believe you! I’ll tell you what: I’ll believe it… when I see it!

Elfie… turned to Santa and muttered under his breath…”Hypocrite.”

Moral of story: unknown…
