Can you have one or multiple soulmates over the course of your lifetime?

There has been a lot of back-and-forth about the concept of soulmates, but a lot of people tend to agree that you could have more than one soulmate in your life.

Soulmates can take the form of friends, family members, lovers, or partners. There is no right or wrong way to have a soulmate in your life –they are simply there in one form or another.

What is a twin flame and how is it different from a soulmate?

1. You might share a birthday with your twin flame.

A twin flame doesn't only compliment you, but they are very much like you, except in the form of another person.

2. Your personalities are alike.

When you meet a soulmate, you may feel a sense of kinship and acceptance around them.

3. You see what you don't like and what you do, about yourself.

When you meet your twin flame, it’s almost as if you are looking in a mirror, where everything that you are and feel is duplicated in this other person.

While soulmates and twin flames can be on opposite sides of the spectrum, they also exhibit a lot of the same traits.
