When I was younger, I was after a sense of personal achievement and couldn’t wait for something to be published under my name. I’m proud of everything I have written, but I have gotten more conservative through the years. I wanted to write under a name that not everyone would think to look up. Hence, twinflamewriter was born.
Much of my awakening and the person I am now was brought about by a twin flame experience. If you’re here, you might be familiar with the term. To put a long story short, I felt like I was going crazy and wanted answers. Labeling my experience and looking outside for answers mostly brought more confusion. Still, I decided to leave the name on my blog because it is a part of my story that I want to always remember.
I am and always have been a writer. I think my gift for it came from my mother, and I want to always remember her too.
People have always told me that I feel things deeply, more deeply than most. I used to think everyone experienced emotions the way I do and didn’t see why this was special.
Now when I look back on some of what I’ve written, I see why it is.
I may no longer resonate with things I published a year or even a month ago. My words aren’t perfect, but I know they can help someone. I think of some of my dark times, how the worst bit about them was how alone I felt. Then I would read a book like The Alchemist or Diana Herself, or find an article online that helped me make sense of what I was going through. I know I have a gift with words too, and I want to share it for others who are coming out of the dark.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.” – Marianne Williamson
