Twin Flame movies: Understanding and recognition

Becoming conscious of being a Twin Flame often starts after physically meeting and separating from your divine counterpart.
This could be after ending a relationship with them, after having a couple of dates or even after just one meeting…
They suddenly pull away because you both have issues (conscious and unconscious) to address, purge and clear.
Stemming from this life, your childhood and even your past lives together. You feel hurt and (try to) move on. But then you start receiving a crazy amount of signs and synchronicities. You start seeing double digits everywhere like 11:11, 1111, 22:22, 21:21, 3333, 4444 etc… You suddenly hear and read your twins name everywhere; receive messages through music, and you may even start getting visions, images of the future or from past lives that suddenly pop into your head out of nowhere.
This could also be through extremely vivid dreams about your twin that feel so real that you just know that it wasn’t “just a dream”, that your souls spoke to each other in another realm of existence.

When we embark on, or awaken to this Twin Flame journey, we start looking for validation and proof of this connection. “Am I just going crazy?! What is happening to me?”. It helps to connect with other Twin Flames and share experiences. Social media groups focused on Spirituality and/or Twin Flames, are a great way to share your experiences and to read other peoples experiences. That has helped me a lot over the past 1,5 years. Also watching YouTube videos helped me gain knowledge on the subject.

In this article, I want to focus on Twin Flame movies because they have also comforted and helped me in understanding and trusting the Twin Flame journey. Watching movies about Twin Flames helped me immensely because 1. You know you’re not alone. You can follow a character going through the same or similar experiences. 2. It brings hope for a happy ending. Having faith in the Twin Flame journey and union is one of the hardest things to achieve because physical experiences often contradict what you feel to be true. There is little to no contact and I even hear a lot of stories where the ‘runner’ blocked his/her counterpart on Social Media. Only to unblock them months or sometimes years later when they find out that they can’t stop thinking about their divine counterpart. Some Twin Flames are married to other people, a karmic partner or soul mate. And other’s have issues due to cultural differences and the accompanying family pressure; Twin Flames born into a Hindu, Jewish or Islamic homes who are being pushed to marry within their culture/religion. Even though the one they want to marry, their divine counterpart, is of a different culture/religion and is therefore not accepted within the other Twin’s family. A large difference in status can also be an issue. Royalty wanting to marry non-royalty, or even something more common as both twins living in different countries, or on the other side of the world. All very classic issues within love stories. And sadly for a lot of people, very relevant within their Twin Flame journey. Watching movies that resonate with our journey can be incredibly healing for us, both emotionally and mentally.

I know that these things have played, and are still playing a part in my own Twin Flame journey. During regression/reincarnation therapy I’ve seen many past lives where I was often murdered by a third person for wanting to be with my Twin Flame. Just like the classic love stories of Romeo & Juliet and Tristan & Isolde. Also a difference in status played a role in some past lives. (The prince and the housemaid)

In many lives there was always someone trying to keep us apart.
It’s a tale old as time. But this time things are different, as we are now clearing this past-life karma by doing the inner-work and creating space for union to manifest. Looking beyond the veils of illusion. No matter what has happened in the past, love will overcome any obstacle life throws at it.

I also realised that many years before I met my Twin Flame or learned about Twin Flames, there were a couple of movies I really resonated with. Now looking back, I realise that they were all Twin Flame movies. I guess my soul recognised the stories long before my mind did.

I’ve picked a couple of movies which are a bit less known and best describe the Twin Flame journey and it’s challenges.
Of course the list is a lot more extensive than this. Below the’ ‘must-watch’ list I created, you can find a larger list of movie titles which feature Twin Flame & Soul mate love. Feel free to add more relevant titles in the comment section below.

Twin Flame must-watch movie list (This list is always being updated!)

Still Breathing (1997) – (Added June 15th 2020)
This movie was suggested in the comments and after seeing it, I must say that I am in AWE! Therefore I decided to add this movie to the must-see trailer list.
This film perfectly depicts the Twin Flame journey.
Brendan Fraser plays the Divine Feminine energy and Joanne Going plays the Divine Masculine energy.
Everything from their fated meeting, their dreams and visions, their inner children seeking each other out, to the running, chasing, unconditional love etc… At the very end of the movie, we even get to see the symbolic red thread/ribbon that binds them together. This movie was made with the Twin Flame concept in mind. 
Synopsis: Two lost souls: she a con-artist in L.A.; he a puppeteer in San Antonio have the same dream linking each with the other. He travels to L.A. to find this woman he has become obsessed with. She resists, afraid of his kooky ideas until she travels with him to San Antonio and meets his wise grandmother. A story of two people linked by fate.

Serendipity (2001)
One of my all-time favourite Romantic movies. I’ve watched it once a year for the past 6 years. I really resonated with Sara Thomas, played by Kate Beckinsale.
Synopsis: On a magical night when they are in in their 20s, Jonathan (John Cusack) meets Sara (Kate Beckinsale). He finds it love at first sight, but Sara believes in destiny. After 10 years the two — with 3,000 miles between them — must decide if fate wants them to be together again. When love feels like magic, it is called destiny; when destiny has a sense of humor, it is serendipity.

I remember you (2015)
The movie starts off slow but it shows exactly what the Twin Flame connection is about. This one got very close to home for me. Especially from the scene where one of the charachters tries hypnotherapy and starts seeing a past life. I highly recommend watching this movie to get a clear understanding of the Twin Flame connection.
Synopsis: Leah and Samuel meet as strangers when Leah saves Samuel from almost drowning in the ocean. Immediately, both cannot shake the feeling that they have met before and that their chance encounter was not a coincidence. Gradually, they realize that they share an incredible past that they are now beginning to remember.

I Origins (2014)
This movie features a Twin Flame romance and the accompanying signs, synchronicities and soul recognition.
Synopsis: A molecular biologist’s study of the human eye has far-reaching implications about humanity’s scientific and spiritual beliefs.

In your eyes (2014)
Sometimes Twin Flames feel and/or see their divine counterpart long before they meet. This is a bit more rare though. This movie perfectly shows the telepathic connection many Twin Flames share.
Synopsis: A neglected and sheltered housewife (Zoe Kazan) shares a metaphysical connection with a charismatic ex-con (Michael Stahl-David).

Fallen (2016)
This fallen angel has fought for his beloved for centuries. He pushes her away because he doesn’t want to hurt her, but what if she actually remembers their history over many life times?
Synopsis: On Luce Price’s first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school, her attention is captured by the strangely familiar Daniel Grigori. She soon discovers he is a fallen angel who has battled over her for centuries.

Tristan & Isolde (2006)
SImilar to Romeo & Juliet, Tristan & Isolde must fight for their love.
Synopsis: After the fall of the Roman Empire, English orphan Tristan meets and falls in love with Irish princess Isolde, however she is set to marry Lord Marke, who raised Tristan. While unaware of her identity, he has won her hand in marriage for his lord and future king of the two countries, but now the passion of the two young people causes a rift leading to a devastating battle.

Midnight Bayou (2009)
This lovestory by Nora Roberts, is another great example of how past-lives can affect our current lives.
Synopsis: Mysterious events plague a man (Jerry O’Connell) after he moves into a new house that — supposedly — is haunted.

Till Human Voices Wake Us (2002)
This movie really speaks for itself, I discovered this film whilst doing research for my graduation film when I was at Uni. I loved the story even though no one seemed to know this film. I now understand why I loved it so much. It really is a deeply profound Twin Flame story about soul recognition and reincarnation.
Synopsis: Still haunted by the disappearance and death of the girl he loved as a teen, university professor Sam (Guy Pearce) meets a woman, Ruby (Helena Bonham Carter), on a train, and they hit it off. But Ruby disappears when Sam is distracted. Later that same night, he spots her falling from a bridge into a lake. He rescues her, but Ruby doesn’t remember who she is. Slowly, she starts to feel oddly comfortable with Sam, and he begins to believe that she may be the reincarnation of his dead love.

2:22 (2017)
If there is one thing that sets apart a regular love story from a Twin Flame love story, it’s the signs and synchronicities experienced by one or both counterparts. In this movie their past lives collide with the present.
Synopsis: Two planes almost collide after a blinding flash of light paralyzes air traffic controller Dylan Branson for a few seconds. Suspended from his job, Dylan starts to notice a repetition of sounds and events in his life at exactly the same time every day. An underlying pattern soon builds, drawing him into New York’s Grand Central Station daily at 2:22 p.m. Now drawn into a complex relationship with a woman, Dylan must figure out a way to break the power of the past and take control of time itself.

Somewhere in time (1980)
I haven’t seen this one yet but the trailer and synopsis really says it all!
Synopsis: In 1972, playwright Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve) becomes fascinated by a photo of Elise McKenna (Jane Seymour), a turn-of-the-century stage actress, while staying at the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, Michigan. As Richard’s obsession grows, he learns from a friend that time travel may actually be possible through hypnosis. Richard travels in time to meet Elise, and the two appear destined to be together. However, Elise’s jealous manager (Christopher Plummer) attempts to keep them apart.

Café de Flore (2011)
The trailer really says it all…
Synopsis: Parallel stories revolve around a present-day disc jockey (Kevin Parent) and a single mother (Vanessa Paradis) in the 1960s.

Loving (2016)
This real-life story about Richard and Mildred Loving shows the struggles they had to go through to be together. And how their story eventually changed the course of history for many other interracial couples.
Synopsis: Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.

Like Water for Chocolate (1992)
Another story about a forbidden romance and the sacrifices that sometimes have to be made.
Synopsis: The youngest daughter in her family, the beautiful Tita (Lumi Cavazos) is forbidden to marry her true love, Pedro (Marco Leonardi). Since tradition dictates that Tita must care for her mother, Pedro weds her older sister, Rosaura (Yareli Arizmendi), though he still loves Tita. The situation creates much tension in the family, and Tita’s powerful emotions begin to surface in fantastical ways through her cooking. As the years pass, unusual circumstances test the enduring love of Pedro and Tita.

Made in heaven (1987)
What happens to Twin Flames when they leave their bodies? They meet each other in other realms. This movie perfectly illustrates how Twin Flames agree to find each other again when they are reborn.
Synopsis: Mike (Timothy Hutton) meets Annie (Kelly McGillis) in heaven and can meet her again, if he can find her, 30 years later on Earth.

Upside Down (2012)
A science-fiction about man’s battle to be with his beloved counterpart even though they are literally worlds apart.
Synopsis: Though it is forbidden, a man (Jim Sturgess) devises a way to reunite with a long-lost love (Kirsten Dunst) from the twin world that sits just above his own.

The Butcher’s Wife (1991) – (Added July 2nd 2020)
A wonderful film about a clairvoyant who grew up with the twin flame concept in mind. Waiting for her other half to return. (her “split-apart”) When she thinks she found him, he turns out to be a facilitator. Eventually she ends up finding her true Twin Flame. This movie includes a wonderful scene where they talk about the Twin Flame concept she calls “split-apart”.
Synopsis: A clairvoyant thinks she’s met her husband to be because she’s seen him in her dreams. They marry quickly, and return to the husband’s (“the butcher”), home in the city. She has a big impact on everyone she meets by anticipating their questions and actions and advising them on their love life. Her interference then brings her into contact with the real man of her dreams.

Winter’s Tale (2014) – (Added December 3rd 2020)
A Twin Flame connection never dies. It’s always there, lifetime after lifetime, and whatever happens, they will always find each other again.
Synopsis: A burglar falls for an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her.

Vanilla Sky (2001) – (Added January 1st 2021)
The connection between true twin flames is so strong that the pull trumps the time they’ve spend together. Even though David and Sofia only met each other once, David and Sofia can’t forget each other, and what happens next, is a complete mystery.
Synopsis: David Aames, a tycoon’s son, inherits his fathers company after both parents were killed in a road accident some years prior. One night, David meets Sofia and instantly falls in love with her. Desperate to find out more about this mystery girl, he wants to spend as much time with her as he can before going back home.
After surviving a car crash and having his face reconstructed courtesy of a ‘jilted lover’, David struggles to find out the truth when his dreams turn into reality, and what he thinks is reality, turns into a nightmare. He knows he wants to be with the Mystery girl he met at the party that night, but where is she?

    *Please keep in mind that not all romantic movies are Twin Flame movies. Movies such as Dirty Dancing, Grease, The Time Traveler’s Wife etc… are wonderful movies that I personally love. However, I try to keep this list as pure as I can when it comes to depicting true Twin Flame connections.

    What sets these movies apart is that they have a strong sense of destiny, divine intervention, past life connection, healing, push and pull, signs and synchronicities etc… Some of the movies above only depict some of these points. But they all depict very strong soul connections that go beyond a “regular” soul connection.

    People however, may resonate with certain romantic movies that don’t necessarily depict a twin flame connection. Because of this, i’ve added an extra category below, with romantic movies that don’t necessarily depict Twin Flame connections, they can be, but they can also be soulmate or temporary connections. There are also movies on this list that I am still in doubt about because they lack certain aspects in their storylines, but they could still resonate with your personal journey.

Other romantic movies that may resonate but don’t necessarily depict twin flame connections;

  • Dirty Dancing (1987)
  • Grease (1978)
  • The Time Travelers wife (2009)
  • Moulin Rouge (2001)
  • About time (2013)
  • The Huntsman: Winter’s war (2016) (sequel to Snow white & the huntsman)
