I am posting this, because I have had this experience and found this article spot on and very intereting. It explains a TON. Be Aware. But don’t be afraid.
“Much as been written about twin flame relationships in the past several years. As we reach the pinnacle point of the great cosmic change, it is imperative that we are well informed about the opposing forces…in this instance, the false twin flame.
The false twin relationships will manifest itself in very similar qualities of the true flame connection. Why is this? The false energy has not yet mastered within themselves the higher levels of consciousness and self reflection that a true twin has. So instead of doing the difficult emotional inner work, the false twin will attach themselves to the more evolved twin and absorb their energy and essence as their own. Whether done on a subconscious level or not, this type of energy exchange is very dangerous for the true twin.
The false twin will mirror qualities of a true twins in order to gain the level of control needed to maintain the connection. DISTANCE is the key to this type of manipulation. Whether geographically or emotionally, this type of energy cannot not be maintained in the LIGHT. (ie., up close and personal) so it will create distractions and diversions until the time comes to feed. Yes, I said feed. Feed off the true twin. Sort of like refueling your car at a gas station. But in this case, the false twin is siphoning your fuel, not adding…
Once the false twin feels that they have gotten what they needed from you, they soon have little or no time for you. They become irritated quickly and visibly withdrawn. They aren’t able to continue the flow of exchange because the energy they claim as their own is borrowed from others. From you.
In the process you don’t know which way to go. Your heart tells you that this person is different, and there were so many signs telling you they were “the one” You shared similar childhoods, interests, goals, dreams. No one understands you the way they did.
The next stage is you begin to blame yourself for the relationship going south. You may apologize often and always play the role of peacemaker. The false twin does not want to make peace with you.
They operate in the shadows. Your unawareness of this fact keeps you in the cycle of their purpose. You engage in their drama and believe that it is Love that is motivating you.
If a false twin is extremely disconnected from their own soul then they can become quite violent psychically and energetically. They will spiritually try to destroy what the true twin has worked dilegently to heal while at the same time wearing a mask of light in the outer world. The false twin can go undetected until they come across someone with knowledge of their game plan or someone who is highly sensitive to energies.
False Twins can strengthen themselves energetically at the expense of a true twins life. Which would manifest outwardly as illness, job loss, depression, even death. Please be informed about false twins as well as real twin flame connections.
Here are some signs you may know a false twin (or energy stealer):

*feeling disoriented, emotionally drained, tired, or worried for no reason when you are in their company or think of them
*they will cuddle you to sleep then distance themselves. this is when the feeding occurs. a true twin does not require this physical closeness as the only way to connect
*they cannot look you in the eyes for extended time or will give a look of suspicion
*they manipulate your time by being late, cancelling plans at last moment, saying they will call and don’t, etc., this is done to get your reaction! your energy…

How to Protect and Clear Yourself from a False Twin Invasion;
*montior your thoughts and pay close attention to not engaging in destructive behavior
*ask the white or golden light to surround you completely
*ask your higher self/soul to be present in your awareness and give you truthful information about the person in which you are involved
*LISTEN to dreams, intuition, messages, and guidance from those you ask for answers
*get rid of anything linked to said person. pictures, emails, text, notes, etc.,
*understand that when you drink or use drugs you allow yourself to become open to negative energies. in your choice to engage, just be aware of this potential and protect/shield yourself reguarly
*use sage, candles, prayer, visualizations, affirmations, or anything else that feels comfortable for you and have a releasement ceremony. invite friends or go at it alone. just make sure to put as much time, energy, and passion into it as they have in stealing your power.
*dance, write, play, create! do something fun and positive as a new source of energy release.
*when they come into your thoughts (which will intensify sometimes for months or even years) just relax and send them back to their highest self and the creator. don’t fool yourself into thinking this means you are meant to be together. it is them recognizing your energy is gone and they want it back!! not because they truly miss and care for you.
*MOST IMPORTANT ADVICE*
really listen to your Intuition. It will always give you the TRUTH, even when your ego has you to beleive you want the person more than anything else. Your intution will ALWAYS shine the light of TRUTH upon you.”
