We are hearing there are only 144,000 twin flames. So of all the people alive on planet Earth today, only 144,000 can be twin flames?
This translates to 72,000 twin flames in union.
This makes absolutely zero sense to us. What about twin flames who are already in spirit form on the other side? Consider some of the famous twin flame couples, such as June Carter and Johnny Cash. When they’re no longer living, does it mean a different twin flame couple takes their place? And if so, who is responsible for the list? Who decides who’s next?
Saying there can only be 72,000 twin flame couples at any given time makes it sound like a revolving door. So other twin flames have to wait in a queue before they can achieve twin flame status? We don’t think so.
Where do these numbers come from?
Well we did a little research to find out. But before we get into that, we must mention we’re only presenting this from a research perspective. It doesn’t mean we follow these theories. Most of our findings are allegory or myth, and don’t relate to twin flames anyway. We also don’t want to offend anyone’s spiritual beliefs by what we present here.
What is a myth? The Oxford dictionary defines a myth as: a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events. Therefore, it’s not to be taken literally.
The New Testament, specifically the book of Revelation, mentions the 144,000. This refers to 144,000 heterosexual, Jewish men, who are virgins. They will preach the Gospel during the tribulation period. This is the 7-year period just before the second coming of the Christ.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. ~Revelation 7:4
There are 12 tribes of Israel. So each tribe is represented by 12,000 men. If we’re doing our math correctly, that equals 144,000. Their mission is to live during the last age of the church and share the experiences of the early apostles. It’s impossible to determine which humans will be included in this special group.
It is important to note the number 12,000 and 144,000 are symbolic numbers representing all of God’s people. We should also mention these numbers are not to be taken literally.
In Plato’s Symposium, humans originally had four arms, four legs and two faces. They were androgynous, having both male and female sex. Allegedly, or according to popular culture, there were 72,000 of these mythical creatures who became the first humans.
They were very powerful, so Zeus wanted to get rid of them. They were also a great energy source for the gods, so they gods really needed keep them around. So instead, Zeus split them in half, into two separate parts. This created 144,000 slaves who continued to give tremendous energy to the pantheon.
Well of course they were miserable being separated from their other half. So they began trying to kill themselves through starvation.
[Each] one longed for its other half, and so they would throw their arms about each other, weaving themselves together, wanting to grow together. ~Plato
Apollo, god of healing and light, took pity on them. So he repaired their bodies by sewing their separation wounds. He left only the navel to remind them of their original form. This is how humans went from double-faced creatures with eight limbs, to one with two arms, two legs and one face. Sadly, they still longed for the other half of their soul. This is where soulmates and twin flames originated.
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe in a heavenly hope and and an earthly hope. They maintain only 144,000 people go to heaven. This number comes from the early Christians and members are anointed. They believe God selects these 144,000 from the days of the early church through to today. That’s over 2,000 years, so the odds are not very high.
Only those with heavenly hope, will reign with Christ in heaven. This of course being the 144,000 hopeful ones. Everyone else will live forever in an earthly paradise, or earthly hope.
TWIN FLAMES AND 144,000
So exactly how does all of this relate to twin flames? Well we aren’t exactly sure where it originates. But it does seem somewhere along the way, someone took this number to associate with divine unions. So in other words, someone decided it’s a good idea. Did they twist Greek myths and the Bible to fit into their own theories? Perhaps.
Our biggest question here is, who makes this stuff up??
We did find a lot of this nonsense in the Twin Flame Collective videos on YouTube. These videos discuss how these twin flames are among the chosen. These 144,000 twin flame lightworkers, are here to assist the world’s spiritual evolution. Apparently this is the only way for humanity to survive this shift in consciousness. This is the divine mission of these super elite twin flames.
This is ridiculous. As we mention numerous times, this is very selective and exclusionary.
Twin flames is not a club or secret society!
The lives of all living beings on this planet has meaning and purpose! No one’s soul purpose is more or less valuable than anyone else’s. Period.
Whether there are 144,000 or 15 billion, everyone receives their spiritual partner when their soul is ready for the twin flame reunion.
