SOUL SHOCK (steve gunn)
Soul-Shock: The pain and distress the soul experiences when your Twin-Flame/Soul-Mate abandons you.
There are some great materials describing soul shock on the Internet. My favorite is by Steve Gunn and can be found at his site www.stevegunn.net.
Lets talk about the Runner though. Anyone with a level of spiritual awareness has trouble understanding how two people can experience a deep soul connection, share the bliss, joy and divine love that these relationships offer only to have one partner run.
The mind, heart, soul
no aspect of our being comprehends this. Someone would choose to leave the most amazing thing that can happen between individuals? Yes, they do
were calling them Runners.
Runners seem to reach a roadblock. After a period of ecstasy and connection, the Runner leaves. It can be sudden or there can be a gradual distancing. Either way, they leave the aware partner in the dust shaken to the core and confused.
What we dont talk about a lot because there is little information on Runners, is that they experience a different kind of shock.
A Runner runs for complex reasons but an element they all have in common is that they are thrown-off by the intensity of the relationship. They do not have time to adapt; its there right off the bat, the whole soul package. They dont intellectually understand it. They feel it, but thats the problem. Their head and heart/soul are not in alignment.
These same people would be comfortable sticking around if it was no more than physical chemistry. They would be ok if it was only friendship. They would probably be ok if it had been a slow evolution from curiosity to lust to friend to relationship to soul partner.
What they cant wrap their head around is that in one human being (their Soul-Mate/Twin Flame) they are presented with a package that includes all of those things at the start. No effort required.
They cant process how this can exist! Even if they believe in such a thing as an ideal soul-mate, they arent spiritually prepared to face him/her so they back off & artificially generate a slow evolution.
Think of it this way. If they did not feel the same intensity as their partner, theyd be there. Does that sound backwards? Going into shock makes people do things they wouldnt do in any other circumstances.
Runners cant seem to explain their own behavior. They dont know why they act the way they do
if you can get them to talk while theyre in the heat of the confusion, you might hear Ive never acted like this in my life. I cant explain it. I dont know who I am anymore or why Im behaving this way. This is not the man/woman I am. I dont know whats wrong with me.
They seem aware they are not themselves but are helpless to stop.
It is a process. Its tempting to call Runners stupid, isnt it? What is obvious to us is confusing to them. What is joyful to us is frightening to them. They are fearful that what they feel is not real, that they are making it up & nobody could possibly love them that much. Surely it must be a trick.
They are fearful that if they say yes to a relationship, it could crumble and they could never recover. If they didnt mutually love their Soul Mate/Twin Flame, they wouldnt have the fear. Do you see? You cant loose what you dont choose.
So you see, while it seems ridiculous, the soul-shock a Runner causes is because they are in shock themselves.
If it gives you any peace, imagine your Runner interacting with anybody BUT you. In your minds eye see them. A normal person behaving normally, right?
Does this not tell you that either one of two things are happening? Either this is not your Soul-Mate/Twin-Flame and they are an idiot and you can be happy that they have left.
this is indeed a high level Soul Mate/Twin-Flame whose soul did recognize you, but their mind needs time to cat
