A relationship with your spiritual half, or a twin flame relationship, can be full of ups and downs, and seeing the number 888 brings some advice on how to make it flow more smoothly. According to Berry, 888 is a reminder to keep your sense of individuality.
“It’s important that each partner maintain their freedom and not lose themselves in the relationship,” Berry says. “Remember there are two separate people who have lives of their own with outside interests and beliefs independent of the relationship.”
Having those outside interests will help you better balance the intensity of your twin flame relationship with your life outside of that relationship. Having a full life that doesn’t involve your partner can also keep the relationship feeling fresh, which Berry says will help strengthen the energy of the spiritual connection.

This is the most authentic message being communicated by the universe straight to you.”
