Twin flames, also called twin souls, are literally the other half of our soul. We each have only one twin in the whole wide universe. There are so many people that it is rare to connect with your twin flame in a lifetime. It’s possible to go many lifetimes without encountering your twin flame. Generally after being split apart, the two go their separate ways, incarnating over and over to gather human experience before coming back together. Ideally, this happens in both of their last lifetimes on the planet so they can ascend together. Most people do not experience many lifetimes with their twin flame.
