(M):> Dearest Zeb, we need your help in understanding the difference between a Twin Soul relationship and a Soul Mate
relationship. Will you please explain?
(Z):> I was wondering when you would finally get around to
Well, you have explained this to Caryl and me, but others would
appreciate getting the 'skinny' straight from the horse's mouth, so
Z:> Horse's mouth?
Figuratively speaking. No disrespect intended.
(Grin) None taken. I would be pleased to expand on the subject of Twin
Souls and Soul Mates for almost everyone confuses the two.
before we begin, a word about channeling is in order. Some
believe Channeling is a psychic process--that one must be a
psychic, a saint, or a holy person in order to hear God. I tell
you this: Anyone can accomplish this spiritual process if they
will allow themselves. You need no intermediary to hear God.
I Am God,
and I speak, but I have never spoken in your languages past or
present. Your religions
tell you that I do and have in order that they may control my words, and
thereby my messages to you.
God has never spoken with words. We
speak through inspiration directly to the knowing center of our Speaker's mind, and the Speaker gives meaning
related to others in your language to what we
telepathically convey. That is the way it has always been. As is usually the case, some
meaning will be lost in the process. If that happens here, it will
be purely unintentional. Melvyn and Caryl have nothing to gain from
altering my words. They can and do update what I have said from
time-to-time with my full authority. What they learn from Zarna and me, they pass on
freely with love. Any mistakes in translation will be put right in
Thank you for explaining that.
You are quite welcome. And now to our subject: "Twin Souls: A
Misunderstood Reality." My intent will be to bring to light what
most of you already know deep in your hearts but may not have easy
access to the memory.
closely at the Yin & Yang symbol. We will use this symbol to explain
the splitting of the soul into Twins before the incarnation
process begins. Visualize the light and dark halves separating
and reforming into complete circles "souls."
Within the masculine light half you have a dark dot—the seed, or
memory, of the missing feminine half. Within the feminine dark half
you have a light dot—the seed, or memory, of the missing masculine
half. Both keep seeking, but why
can't they find each other?
Twin Souls are affected by
Universal Law of Attraction. "Like attracts like."
the two Twins are as unlike as two souls can be. One is almost totally dark and the other is almost
totally light. They repel each other. The light half with only
a dark dot represents a primitive Alpha male heterosexual that we
will call a "Hetero-g male"—meaning an opposite-gender
oriented male. This is more fully explained at the beginning
of "The Twin Soul’s Development," but
we will explain it
briefly here. He is
"all male" and seeks a woman
who is all female. Sounds pretty
good, huh? But wait...
Hetero-g male is domineering, possessive, with little creative
passion or compassion. He is not sensitive or understanding to the
feelings of LOVE. To him Love is SEX and he desires plenty of it
The Hetero-g female is passive, undemanding, compliant, loving and
compassionate who wants to raise a family and have comfort and
security provided for her. To get this she complies with the will
of the Hetero-g male. But do they really have anything in common?
No. And sadly such relationships don't usually last. Why? Because of the
Universal Law of Attraction. "Like attracts Like," and these two are
as opposite as the two halves of the Yin Yang symbol.
So what happens?
Z:> Both keep on looking for what they think they don't have even while in a
relationship. The Hetero-g male seeks a self-assured and less
compliant woman. The Hetero-g female
seeks a male more sensitive to her
feelings which the Hetero-g male lacks. They often part and
This is the experience by which both grow. It doesn’t happen in
one lifetime. It takes many lifetimes to get right. That
which is lacking is not in the other person, it is within themselves. This change happens slowly over time.
M:> In other words, reincarnation?
M:> But what if one doesn't believe in reincarnation?
Z:> It doesn't matter what you believe or don't believe. While
you do create your own personal reality through your choices, you
do so under the universal law of ultimate reality. Those
things you cannot change are, Reincarnation, Twin Souls, and the
fact that We are ALL God.
So if the Twin Soul is the perfect mate, what about Soul Mates?
Can we seek and find one of these?
Yes, you can seek and find one or more of these. While the Twin Soul
is the only one who is the other half of your soul, there are two other kinds of
very desirable soul mates---Near Twins and Companion Souls.
And we can pair-bond with any of those Near Twins of the opposite
You can pair-bond with any of those of either gender.
Your religions have taught you that relationships must be
among two persons of the opposite gender, but that was strictly
for procreation. Two or more of the same gender can and do unite in spiritual
bonds that transcend many conventional relationships.
I suppose you will touch on that subject in another article?
Z:> I will, for it and other topics now are rather controversial in
your cultures. There are other Soul Mates, such as,
Companion Souls that form
M:> Is that why Caryl in some cases prefers to use the term, "Companion Mates"
instead of Soul
Z:> Exactly! All spiritual unions of divine love are Soul Mate
relationships. That is why there is so much confusion over what
is, and what is not a Twin Soul, and why some think they can seek
and find their Twin Soul. You can't. When you are ready, when the
bi-gender balance or Bi-G Balance is achieved, then the
mate to your soul—your other half--will be drawn to you.
If incarnated at
the same time and you both have charted reunion in this life your
Twin Soul will always be of the opposite gender, whereas Near
Twins and Companion Souls can be of either gender. Your Twin is the
ultimate in Soul Mate connections but life between you two will
never be "perfect." Remember, Twins approach everything from
opposite directions. There are bound to be clashes. Next to
the Twin Soul in compatibility is the "Near Twin,"
followed by the "Companion Soul."
Aren't we getting into the same semantics mess with the term, "Companion Souls?"
All are potential “companions.” Can't there still be some
confusion over the term?
Yes, there could be, but it is the term we have chosen to use. We
will define it so there will be no confusion.
M:> Are there other kinds of relationships besides those listed
Z:> Yes there are, but they are not spiritual in nature. Hetero-g
relationships are often based on "sexual attraction" or "need" rather
Contrary to what most will tell you, there is nothing wrong
with sexual attraction. It is a divine process. It is by that
attraction one is lead to desire the ultimate experience with your Twin Soul. There is nothing
"sinful" about it. However, this desire alone is not enough to
build a relationship upon. You need more soul substance in
That is enough for now. More will follow in the Twin Soul Series
explaining divine relationships -- the structure of the soul and
the hierarchy of God, which are one in the same. And we will
discuss such things as how to recognize your Twin Soul. It doesn't
always happen with "love at first sight." One will generally
recognize the other before both realize their connection. Caryl was the one who awakened you, opened
your eyes to see what was obvious with the heart.
that finding their Twin Soul is some kind of "singles
dating" thing. Nothing could be farther from the truth. When the
twins are ready, forces of the universe will draw them together
and nothing can prevent it. You may not even be "single
Neither Melvyn or Caryl were searching for their perfect matewhen

incarnated and reunited Twin Souls are still rare. It is a major event
of cosmic significance and it is always for some larger spiritual
purpose when it happens. It is not to satisfy two lonely hearts. Such a
major cosmic event is coming in the next ten years (2012,) and Melvyn
Caryl’s mission as is to be heralds to that event--to prepare
the way. Others are doing the same, but these two are our
and your friends.
