Twin flames. Just the thought makes my heart flutter. I love reading about twin flame relationships. Twin flames are different from soul mates. A twin flame is the other half of a soul although each individual in the pair is complete. The ultimate goal is to be reunited with your twin flame and ascend together. Soul mates, on the other hand, are thought to be numerous and can range from friends to lovers. It is said that we each have many soul mates but only one twin flame.
