Yes, and there are also degrees of compatibility between Twinsouls. It is not necessary for Twinsouls to make any effort towards compatibility, they are just compatible, while Soulmates are continually being subjected to adversity, frustration and temptation. The intention is that the love of Soulmates be brought to a state of completeness. Twinsouls can incarnate and meet in any relationship at all; Soulmates usually do so on a male/female basis, although they may not necessarily meet in each incarnation. However, when it applies to the necklace of incarnations the finding of a Soulmate is essential.
No, that is an impossibility and a contradiction in terms. For each person who has even only partially passed along the incarnational way there is only one true mate. There seems to be a lot of confusion in people’s mind regarding Soulmates and Twinsouls. The link between the former has been forged by love, while the latter are linked by compatibility. Life in general, particularly in the initial incarnations, is much easier for Twinsouls than for Soulmates.
This concept goes as far back as Ancient Egypt at least. However, the modern concept of Soulmates is a devalued one which only barely accords with the original teachings; modern social conditions and attitudes are inhibiting its expression rather than propagating it. Soulmates are two people who, through several incarnations, have become so emotionally involved with each other that their destinies become completely entwined. Contrary to popular belief they are not two people who have discovered some form of all-embracing love which fulfils their lives and raises them to some dizzy heights of emotion. Soulmates have to pass through tempering fires and survive some very severe tests, the least of which are frustration, disappointment, disillusionment, loneliness and even despair.
