What is a twin flame soulmate? A commonly held explanation is that when your soul was formed, it was complete. This "soul" was then split into two more completely and wholly different entities. Greek mythology mentions that humans originally had four legs, four arms and one head that presented two faces. Humans were also considered to be three genders: men (sun), women (earth), and other (moon). According to the story, humans possessed great strength and threatened the Gods. In order to get rid of this threat Zeus supposedly split humans in half resulting in Twin Flames.
