Q. The physical connection spurs the spiritual awakening, but is it possible that it will awaken only if the free will is not blocking it, or will it happen anyway?
A. With twin flames, there is a knowing of some sort before physical connection that something is going to happen, even if this is just on the level of feeling. So the spiritual awakening to some level creates the physical connection/attraction and then when the physical connection occurs, there is an even deeper spiritual awakening that happens. This happens regardless of whether the particular soul is choosing fear instead of love. We awaken from the inside and then we have a choice of what to do with that internal awakening on the outside. In other words, we can transition out of relationships around us or move forward in other areas if the awakening nudges us to make such shifts or we can stay in the same places, but we have to live with the feeling of being in a place that is no longer in alignment with our souls. Such awareness and feelings can bring about a dark night of the soul where we must confront our fears in order to move forward in a deeper vibration of love with ourselves and each other.
It is important to note that regardless of whether a soul chooses fear or love, love is always present between the souls of the twin flames. Sometimes, even when there is a deep spiritual awakening prompted by the twin flame awareness and connection, one can choose fear and not move forward to accept such a love and mission. However, I want to also share with you, that as we move further into the Age of Aquarius, twins will be merging together, physically and in all ways because the collective is awakening at such a rapid rate that it will become inevitable. This is one of the reasons why we have chosen to be alive at this particular time. Keep the faith and remember that love is always present.
