The sacred marriage, ‘twin flames’, why my book has taken on a new term, and what my love has taught me. Book sample.
“Viviane and Merlin Resting in the Forest – Gustave Dore – it is a widely held belief that Viviane was Merlin, the famous magician’s unreported sacred partner, with whom he cultivated the balance of energies (masculine+feminine), needed to manifest his marvellous abilities. She shared with him everything that she knew, becoming a willing background advisor to him. She allowed him to take, ‘the spot light’. And this never bothered her once. She was unconcerned with taking credit for that which came so naturally to her. Her credit came from his unconditional love and gratitude to her.
The term, ‘twin flame’, has become somewhat of a fallacy, even a fantasy. From contradictory statements, to paradoxical articles, superstition, disbelief, misinformation, and chaos, most of what we have come to associate with the term, ‘twin flame’, is lengthy, and prolonged pain.
And there is nothing ‘divine’, nor sacred about this type of agreement, nor this type of arrangement. Because of the colourfulness, and new age tales about the twin flame Union, many people seek to align themselves with the term, completely watering down, and trivialising the significance, of such divine Union.
For this purpose, I believe that the best term for this Union, in replacement, is ‘the sacred marriage’, or ‘divine union’, as I feel that this allows more mobility, sovereignty, and individuality, and does not limit nor narrow the experiences of those who share this type of spiritual relationship, to a set of supposed categories, and experiences.
Yes, indeed this type of Union consists of many levels and stages of development, growth, and understanding, and a push, and pull effect for overall balance, that may be perceived in the traditional sense as, ‘the separation stage’.
But labelling this type of love only adds limitations, false hope, further confusion, dissolution with self, and does not pay homage to the term, ‘sacred’, which means ‘to set apart’.
The very potion that adds divinity to any type of sacred marriage, is the notion that it exists only between the two persons who encounter it. It cannot successfully be articulated, or interpreted, even if many have undergone their own sacred marriages. No two experiences are the same. And it has become far too easy to attribute border line abusive relationships with the label, ‘twin flame’.
Indeed, the typical symptoms fit this narrative. Distance – withdrawal – unpredictability. You name it, but it should be noted – there is nothing sacred about abuse.
Sacred lovers do not treat one another harshly when awakened to the reality of the Union.
The sacred lover who assumes the role of the masculine energies, is likely to be indeed suffering from an inactivity, or low activity of their chakra system, blocked heart chakra, (manifesting as withdrawal, commitment issues, fear of intimacy), blocked throat chakra, (difficulty with expression that may likely manifest as timidity, shyness, reluctance to make progress), along with other types of complications.
However, even in this instance, the masculine energies in this sacred Union would rather withdraw, in order to gather themselves, than continue to hurt their love, whilst confusing themselves. Under no circumstance do they purposefully inflict hurt.
Both souls attached to a sacred marriage, would have committed pretty destructive, and tasteless acts in their former years, (for transmutation purposes), but upon awareness of the existence of their holy counterpart, they understand the depth of emotion, and wish to bring no harm. This is the activation of the heart chakra.
Please keep this in mind when deciphering whether you are dealing with a sacred marriage, or a messy karmic attachment. Karmic attachments, or ‘false twins’, as they are so commonly referred to, tend to draw energy, and strength from toying with your emotions. They tend to be vampiric, using your source of energy, and divine light to fuel their own lack of internal satisfaction.
The divine marriage counterpart however, actually becomes weak, and witnesses their energy deplete if they were to ever cause you pain. As they are your soul mirror, they feel your pain on a deep level. It becomes their pain. Often, this is why they will withdraw entirely when they become aware of the complexity, and intensity of the sacred Union. They fear that they have two left feet. And anything they do will not be good enough in your eyes, and that they will inevitably somehow mess up, as they have been doing their entire lives.
