Have you found your twin flame, only to be left with confusion and questions?
Twin flame relationships aren’t an easy ride – they’re frustrating and even painful at times – because they’re designed to force you to grow, be challenged, and to heal.
But while you’re going through this roller coaster of emotions, you’re probably wondering if your twin flame is experiencing them too.
From the good to the bad, it can be hard to figure out how they’re feeling and if they’re experiencing the same as you on your twin flame journey.
But to better understand how your twin flame is linked to you — emotionally and spiritually — we first need to understand how the silver cord that you share works.
So, what is the silver cord of connection?
You may have come across the silver cord, especially if you’ve been trying to learn more about your twin flame connection.
So what is it and how does it play a role in explaining how your twin feels what you feel?
Put simply, the silver cord is an energetic structure that connects our physical selves to our spiritual selves.
To imagine what it looks like, picture a cord of light that’s used to transfer energy between you and your higher self.
But when you have a twin flame, your silver cord (which stems from your heart chakra) travels through the spiritual realm where it connects to the heart chakra of your twin flame.
It sounds like a lot to take in, but the important thing to know is that this energetic connection binds you both spiritually – and it opens a gateway for energy to be transferred and shared.
So, what does that mean for you?
Well, it’s the basis of why your twin flame does feel what you feel. It’s the link that connects you and makes your relationship into a complete union.
So when you experience things like intense emotions or vivid dreams about your twin flame, you’re not alone.
Your twin flame does feel what you feel.
However, your twin flame might not experience everything you feel at the same time as you (although it can happen), they will go through the same emotions at one point or another in their journey.
But if you’re still wondering how to find out whether your twin feels the same as you, read on for the most common signs to look out for.
9 signs your twin flame feels what you feel
1) They run
You’re probably thinking, “why do they run if they feel the same amazing feelings I do?”
But it’s this exact reason why your twin flame leaves.
They feel the intensity of your shared emotions – you’re both parts of the same soul so it’s natural for them to take on the same feelings as you.
But, in some cases, this can be overwhelming and your twin flame will do everything possible to push you away – even to the point where they ignore you.
Although it’s brutal and painful to be left in the lurch by your twin flame, you can take it as a definite sign that they feel the same way as you.
They’re not ready to deal with their emotions or confront the changes they need to make within themselves, so you might (or might not) have to wait a while for them to return.

2) They mirror what you’re feeling
Just as your twin flame can’t help but run when they’re scared of these intense emotions and changes, they also won’t be able to control mirroring your feelings or behavior.
Even if they’re not aware of it, your twin flame acts as a reflection of you.
If you feel insecure, your twin flame will display this back to you – even if it hurts you, it’s meant to make you wake up and deal with your flaws.
So how would a twin be able to mirror you, if they didn’t know how you truly felt inside?
You see, twin flames can pick up on each other’s innermost flaws and feelings, regardless of how much time they’ve spent together.
So when your twin mirrors you – for the good or the bad, know that it’s because they truly know you and feel what you feel – even if you’ve never verbally discussed it.
3) He feels like a hero
There’s a new concept in relationship psychology that goes to the heart of whether your twin flame feels the same as you do.
According to the hero instinct, men are “meant to be” with women who make them feel certain powerful emotions.
Men want to feel that they are protecting the woman they care about and providing her something that no other man can.
In other words, men want to feel like a hero and it’s up to a woman to trigger this natural biological instinct in him.
The hero instinct is typical of a twin flame relationship, as for a man especially, feeling like a hero can bring out deep, emotional connections towards his partner.
I know it sounds a bit silly. In modern times, women don’t need someone to be their “hero” to save the day.
And I couldn’t agree more.
But here’s the ironic truth. Men do still need to feel like they are a hero. After all, it’s built into their DNA to seek out a relationship with a woman that makes them feel like one.
The kicker is that you can actually trigger this instinct in your twin flame.
All you need to do is find ways to make him feel like your hero. There’s an art to doing this which can be a lot of fun when you know exactly what to do.

James Bauer, the relationship psychologist who first coined this term, gives a terrific introduction to his game-changing concept.
Some ideas are life changing. And when it comes to getting the most out of your twin flame relationship, I think this is one of them.
And that brings us on to our next point – your twin flame feels what you feel without needing a conversation about it.
It’s funny that silence is often met with a surprising reaction – most people assume that if they’re not communicating with you it’s because there’s a disconnect.
But with twin flame relationships, silence says a lot.
When your twin flame is quiet, it’s not because they don’t want to talk to you, it’s because they already know what you’re thinking or feeling.
It’s crazy, right?
That someone can know you so well that they don’t even need to talk to understand you.
The next time your twin partner is silent, don’t jump to the conclusion that they’re bored or preoccupied -it could simply be that they already know what you’re thinking and they don’t feel the need to chit-chat.
5) You experience telepathy
And if picking up on your feelings without words isn’t enough, you and your twin flame may even experience telepathy together.
The truth is, there’s more chance of experiencing telepathy with your twin soul than with any other type of connection.
And it makes sense:
Your soul is one – even though you each experience your own emotions and react differently to external stimuli, when it comes to feeling the same about each other there’s no hesitation.
So, if you have a moment of telepathy where you pick up on how your twin flame feels, you can be confident that they probably experience it too, even if they never talk about it.
6) Unconditional love
Unconditional love is a massive part of finding and connecting with your twin flame – it’s what sets you apart from soul mates and other types of connections.
And, it’s the ultimate goal for twin flames, which is probably why you can’t stop thinking about them.
All the hard work, the growth, the separations, it all leads to finding a higher level of love – unconditional love.
When you and your twin flame reach this level, it won’t matter how much you’re apart, you both know that your love for each other transcends physical distance.
So how do you if your twin flame shares in your unconditional love?
Well, the clues will be there in how they treat you.
Your twin flame, even if you spend periods apart, will always come back.
They won’t waste your time or drag you down, instead they’ll do everything they can to elevate you and help you be the best you can.
This is because unconditional love comes without limits, expectations, or conditions.
And if your twin flame is on this journey of soul work with you, they’ll be feeling the same love as you.
7) Shared dreams
Shared dreams are another way you’ll know that your twin flame feels the same as you.
Sometimes you’ll both dream similar dreams, other times you’ll dream about each other.
In most cases, your shared dreams will reflect what one or both of you are experiencing, and it’s another way that you both connect and understand each other.
So why do twin flames share dreams?
Sleep is believed to be the time where both your egos are relaxed and the pressure and stress of the outside world are quietened the most.
During your dreams, your soul might guide you both on areas that need healing, developing, or changing.
It’s safe to say that for twin flames, shared dreams can often be a spiritual nudge or wake-up call – but in many cases, it’s just a sweet experience that wakes you up feeling content and love-filled.
8) Intense emotion
It’s a fact that twin flames will experience intense emotion around each other – on a spiritual level it’s the connection you share but emotionally it can be a lot to handle.
But the great thing about this intensity is that it’s hard to hide. You can tell when your twin flame feels emotional or is completely loved up and enjoying being with you.
And it’s quite normal for these intense emotions to come in sudden waves, out of the blue.
But the best part about these intense emotions?
It’s your soul’s recognition of itself in another person.
It’s the ultimate form of connection, and it can often take over you and make you feel helpless and overwhelmed – but also give you a feeling of “oneness” with your partner.
So if you’re feeling this way, there’s a good chance your twin flame feels the same, and you’ll know by using your gut instinct and their reactions to confirm.

9) The energetic aura
Our last point brings us to the energetic rush you experience when your twin flame misses you – if you haven’t experienced it, imagine the sensation of energy pulsing through you.
It usually happens randomly, shocking you out of whatever you were doing at the time and urging you to be more productive or adventurous.
And the same can happen to your twin flame when you think of them, regardless of whether they know it’s through their connection to you or not, they’ll still experience the same energy.
More often than not, both twin flames will experience it at the same time (although not always).
But that’s not all:
This same energy can be harnessed when you’re together, usually resulting in you both working as a team to achieve your goals.
It’s a wonderful experience that’s shared by twin flames, and certainly, one that can’t be ignored when it happens.
So now we’ve covered the top signs that your twin flame feels the same as you, let’s look into the times when these signs may seem less obvious.
Is there ever a time that your twin flame feels differently?
When it comes to the silver cord connection, your twin flame will experience the same things as you – but it doesn’t mean they’ll necessarily feel exactly what you’re feeling.
It could be that they haven’t gone through any soul work.
You might have started your spiritual awakening and have already journeyed into yourself so that you have a better understanding of this connection, but your partner might not have.
So whilst they’re aware that what they feel around you is intense, they aren’t always ready for those emotions and that’s why we often see “runners” and “chasers” in twin flame relationships.
So what’s the chase all about?
Well, it usually happens when one person in the relationship becomes overwhelmed and essentially leaves.
They’re called the “runner” because they’re running from their fears of intense emotion, spiritual growth, and unconditional love.
It’s normal for the “chaser” to be left feeling abandoned, hurt, and confused – why would their twin flame leave such a magical relationship?
The truth is:
The “runner” needs to leave, whether it’s to grow independently or to pursue other relationships until they’re ready to come back to their twin flame and accept the intensity of the union.
And, they’re often running from their issues – the “chaser” was the mirror to show them parts of themselves that they aren’t ready to face.
But during this separation, the “chaser” often wonders whether the “runner” still experiences what they’re feeling – does the silver cord stay intact?
It does indeed.
Your twin flame still feels the intense connection you both have, the love is there but they simply aren’t able to deal with it – so possible during this time that they don’t know that they feel the same way as you.
They’re still aware of the bond you share, but they’re focussing on other areas of their life, so their attention isn’t focussed on your feelings or how they can be closer to you.
It’s quite difficult for the “chaser” to know how their twin flame feels when they run, but if they’re truly your twin flame, they’ll share that important connection whether you’re together or not.
But what if they’re completely disconnected from you and your gut feeling tells you that you’re not on the same level?
What if my twin flame doesn’t feel the same as me?
If this is the case:
They’re not your twin flame.
You might be with a false twin flame – someone who shows some similarity to a true twin flame but in reality, has very different life purposes and feelings.
Whereas a real twin flame might run but will eventually come back, a false twin flame will make you feel like you’re joined in union, but in reality, they don’t feel what you feel.
Issues like past trauma or relationship problems will easily make a false twin flame run and never look back, the complete opposite of a true twin flame.
A false twin flame can make you lose out on precious time and energy that could be directed at attracting your true partner.
So if you don’t feel that your partner truly feels what you feel, it’s a massive indicator that they’re not your twin flame and it’s time to move on and focus on yourself until he/she finds you.
And on that note, if you have met your true twin flame, these overwhelming signs will certainly be proof that they feel exactly what you feel – regardless of how they might act.
The truth is, your unique bond is so rare, it’s normal to be confused by your twin flame’s reactions sometimes, but just keep in mind that it’s all part of your soul journey together.
