Artist, poets, writers, philosophers have been thinking about idea of love for centuries. Today, movie directors and screenwriters, create epic love stories on the TV and cinema screen. 

Romantic film often explore the essential themes of true love, serve as escape and fantasy for viewers, especially if the two people finally overcome their difficulties, declare their love and experience life “happily ever after”, implied by a reunion and final kiss.


What is happening in the love scenes of real life?

Philosophers have been thinking about idea of love for thousands of years, right back to the Ancient Egyptians and the Greek philosophers.

Ancient philosopher Plato and idea that we were once whole, but then got divided

Ancient philosopher Plato discuss the idea that we were once whole, but then got divided into two and that we live our lives yearning and unhappy, as we wish to be reunited with our other half.  When we find this twin soul, our lives are then complete.


Greek philosopher Aristotle’s idea of love as single soul inhabiting two bodies

Greek philosopher Aristotle said: “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” According to Greek legend, by the story based on mythology written by Aristotle’s mentor, Plato in his work, Symposium, humans originally were half male and half female. After conspiring to climb Mount Olympus, Zeus ordered them cut in half. Since that day, every human spends their life searching for their other half.

From Aristotle’s idea to the modern concept & term 

Today, modern concept and term of a single soul inhabiting two bodies is called Twin Flames and it has nothing to do with overused term Soul made. We can have many soul made people in our lives, but only one Twin Flame – our other half.

Some theories say that twin flames, are even not people, but a cosmic frequency. We have only one twin and after being split, the two went their separate ways, incarnating over and over to gather human experience before coming back together. Our other half is a being whose soul energy is the closest soul vibration to you.

“When you do meet your other half, it is an indescribable Oneness, is like standing in front of a mirror. You are seeing your own energetic reflection, Meeting Your Energetic Mirror. Experience of eyes and face reflecting back and forth into eternity like two mirrors up to each other. This may feel like you “downloaded” each other through your eyes. Ability to communicate without words better than with anyone else you know. When the two halves meet the physical meeting is very intense, deep. Experience of looking into the eyes of one’s your other half is like seeing all aspects of yourself clearly and completely for the first time. Time feels as though it’s stopped. It is like journey to the Infinity and back. Your souls take on their own little dance. You will feel as though you are on a new energetic level and most time your body will beat differently, you will think and feel differently, all of these things are not found so intensely in any other type of relationship and this is absolutely life-changing to both of you.”

Signs and symptoms that you have met your your other half:
1. Instant Recognition

“They are instinctively drown to each other. You meet eyes with your your other half for the first time and feel that you recognize them in a deep way, despite never having seen them before. The experience of looking into the eyes of one’s your other half is like seeing all aspects of yourself clearly and completely for the first time. Even their voice or laugh may sound familiar. You bump into your other half for the first time. Something happens. You know this person somehow even though you don’t recognize them on a physical level. You feel such intense love, but you wonder how this can be so when you don’t know them. You conclude it’s just lust, but why is there that knowing feeling deep in your soul? Time feels as though it’s stopped and every question you had is like answered.”

2. Love at First Sight & Unusual Meeting

“Less than one percent of people have a Meeting your other half experience. You both feel a very powerful and strong bond that you have never felt before with anyone. Unusual meeting under strange and unusual circumstances or coincidences, perhaps both doing something they would not normally do.”

3. Separated yet always connected

“They are always connected. If separated, they feel sad and empty. There are multiple channels of energy that run through both twins, connecting them together. When one twin flame comes to tell another a message, this sparks the same frequency in the other. Sometimes when twins communicate either through the mind or through speech, they give off “false signals” in terms of saying things they don’t really mean in order to push the other away. The other half will always communicate through soul, even before they have met or awakened or even before they are consciously aware of each other. The twins are never fully separate, the connection is always present.”

4. Thinking & Awakening

“Twin flames will frequently find that they know what the other is thinking, even sometimes when far apart from each other. You know your life has changed forever, you can just sense it, but you don’t have a clue why. You can’t stop thinking about this person all the time, re-living times when you saw him or her.  The love you feel for this person increases over time when you think logically it should fade. You just feel scared. Scared of losing this person somehow. Awakening – you begin to notice new things about yourself and the world around you and think about life in a new more positive way.”

5. You can say anything to each other

“Sometimes without words. You can talk together for hours, there are no communication barriers between, but totally upfront and open communication. You feel as if the level of friendship and intimacy is unlike anything you have ever experienced.”

6. Completeness

“You feel a sense of completeness that goes beyond what you ever thought is possible.”

7. So you “run” from it

“If both souls are evolved to the point where the energetic shifts are manageable, they will be complete.  For the rest of the one percent who are having this experience, it is rough, if one of the pair of twin souls is not progressed enough to explore the connection on a mutually level. The challenges faced are essential to the purpose of being able to embody your other half. It is also called Runner Insanity. So, they are running from it. Running from the connection. They are being pulled by the energy of the connection, which is absolutely maddening.They can put it off, but it will happen. You can’t fight the Universe.
