The 8 Twin Flame Stages [And What They Mean]


Some believe that there are only three stages of a twin flame relationship – The runner, the chaser, and the reunion.

However, many people believe that there are more stages to a twin flame relationship.

In this article, I’ll be discussing all the twin flame stages that many people believe in.

I’ll also be discussing what each stage means and how you can identify which stage you and your twin flame are in.

So without further ado, let’s just get straight into it, shall we? 🙂

How many stages are there in a twin flame relationship?

While the exact number of stages in a twin flame relationship may vary, there are generally 8 distinct phases that twins go through.

The role of each twin also changes throughout the relationship – In some stages, one twin will be more dominant while in others, the other twin will take on a more leading role.

The reason why the number of stages in a twin flame relationship may vary is that not every twin flame relationship is the same.

Each twin flame relationship is unique and will go through its own set of challenges and obstacles.

Below, I’ll be discussing each stage in more detail.

Twin Flame Stage #1 – Yearning for The One

The first stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “yearning” stage.

In this stage, you will feel an intense longing for your twin flame.

You may not even know who your twin flame is yet, but you will feel a deep yearning and longing for them.

You may feel as though you are missing something in your life and you will be searching for it.

This is the stage where you will begin your twin flame journey.

Twin Flame Stage #2 – Glimpsing The One

The second stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “glimpsing” stage.

In this stage, you will catch glimpses of your twin flame.

You may not know who they are yet, but you will feel a deep connection to them.

You may see them in your dreams or you may have random encounters with them.

This is the stage where you will start to become aware of your twin flame.

Twin Flame Stage #3 – Falling in Love

The third stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “falling in love” stage.

In this stage, you will finally meet your twin flame and you will instantly feel a deep connection to them.

You may feel as though you have known them your whole life.

You will feel a deep love for them and you will want to be with them all the time.

This is the stage where you will fall in love with your twin flame.

Twin Flame Stage #4 – The Fairy-Tale Relationship

The fourth stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “fairy-tale relationship” stage.

In this stage, you will feel like you are in a fairy-tale relationship with your twin flame.

Everything will seem perfect and you will be extremely happy.

However, this stage will not last forever. Eventually, you will start to see the cracks in your relationship and you will realize that your relationship is not as perfect as you thought it was.

Twin Flame Stage #5 – Outer Turmoil and Inner Purging

The fifth stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “outer turmoil and inner purging” stage.

In this stage, you will start to experience some problems in your relationship.

You may start to argue with your twin flame and you may even have a falling out.

However, these arguments are a good thing. They are helping you to purge all of the negative energy from your relationship so that you can move on to the next stage.

Twin Flame Stage #6 – The Runner and Chaser

The sixth stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “runner and chaser” stage.

In this stage, one twin will start to distance themselves from the other.

This is known as the “running” phase. The twin who is running may not even be aware of what they are doing.

They may feel like they need some space and they may start to pull away from the relationship.

The other twin will start to chase after them and they will try to get their twin to come back.

However, the more they chase, the more their twin will run.

This stage can be very difficult, but it is a necessary part of the twin flame journey.

Twin Flame Stage #7 – Surrender and Dissolution

The seventh stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “surrender and dissolution” stage.

The ego death occurs during this stage.

This is when both twins are finally able to let go of their egos and they can see each other for who they are.

They will also be able to see the divine purpose for their relationship.

During this stage, the twins will start to merge into one energy, and they will become one soul.

Twin Flame Stage #8 – The Union

The eighth and final stage of a twin flame relationship is known as the “union” stage.

They will have reached a state of complete and utter bliss.

This is the ultimate goal of the twin flame journey.

The twins will be completely in love with each other and they will be able to feel each other’s emotions.

This is the stage where the twin flames become “one soul”.

Final thoughts

When it comes to twin flame relationships, there is no right or wrong.
