Twin flame is one of those terms that is often misunderstood and misused.
It sounds so incredibly romantic and sexy. Your mind imagines two lovers floating in the flames of an indestructible love, their souls flowing freely within those flames perpetuating the contract they complete with each other.
I suppose I just defined what we all envision or a least a similar description.
I wasn’t aware of the fires until I started to decipher the burns.
I had been married for 15 years already.
We started our family and began to grind out our path together.
In my 30s I was battling my demons with empty bottles.
Searching for resolution within the darkness of pain.
The heat of the flame burns both ways and in these dark times of my life, my wife suffered the burns of watching me light my life on fire.
She left me and for three years I emptied bottles into the darkness and one night I was done searching.
The pills weren’t enough to light the way and denied, I woke up to burn for another day.
But, something had changed.
I began to look at all these burns in my life.
The burns I had caused my wife and the fires that spread within our life.
During our separation we spoke often and cried a lot, we fought and held each other.
And through those fires I was cleansed.
My demons took my trust away at a very young age and that creates a very lonely battle.
Learning to trust was a fight I didn’t even see coming and my wife came in with a gallon of gas.
She had no more time for campfires, she wanted a bonfire.
Looking back, that fire is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.
Eight years back together and our burns are healed. Our fires are strong and flicker with a different light.
Two lovers floating in the flames of an indestructible love, their souls flowing freely within those flames perpetuating the contract they complete with each other.
