Illustration Friday - Proverb - "Twin Flames"

Whatever our souls are made of, 
his and mine are the same.  
Emily Brontë

Twin Flames
This week's illustration / painting is something I drew long ago...

There was a period in my life where my obsession was to read, devour, memorise any book, poem and research about twin souls or twin flames. Some websites mention that twin souls are different than twin flames, or your soul mate. The list of names for the One in one's life seems endless. That was during the time when I was single and getting depressed that I would never find my own twin flame...

So I drew this...

Twin Flames - closeup

 These are two souls who have met finally after millenia of separation, galaxies and light years away from each other, each exploring their own path and learning their own lessons. The fusion is said to be so great that they will burst into flames and into a big ball of bright light. Such is the beauty and power of love.

Some people have told me that they look like lesbians hugging each other. I say that the spirit does not have bodies that are too different from each other - the male and the female, the yin and the yang, the two polarities into which souls must learn to merge into one again. On Earth terms, I prefer to call the "male" spirit androgynous-looking; just because the lines are drawn sinuously, doesn't mean that the male is a female...

Then again, I do like ambiguity in my art.

Twin Flames - Sun
They met again on the planet on which they separated - the planet of two dying suns. The planet is long gone, empty and void of life. But their souls remember from which they came from, and they flew swiftly there to meet their loved one. And there tears of joy and sadness flowed, for they have been separated for far too long.

Twin flames - the energy of life merging again, polarities become one.



  1. Stunning! I love the way the two figures flow together.

  2. this is so lovely
    i feel happiness that you found one another
    the feeling of your art is full of spirit
    thank you.

  3. This is my favourite by far! My favourite for this week's topic, my favourite of your work and quite possibly one of my favourite pictures... I can't adequately express how excellent I think it is... and I love the writing that goes with it... thank you for posting this.

  4. is this for sale in any form in your shop Pixy? I couldn't find it

  5. Hi Alex, so glad that you visited and like my painting. It's not for sale yet, but since you like it, I can make it for you specially in my store, but it'll have to be next week, because I am getting married this week! :) Email me and tell me what you like, and I'll make it for you.

  6. Wow! Amazing work! Love the sentiment, the colors and the mood! Nice one Pixy! Hey congrats on your wedding. Many years of joy and peace!

  7. Hey I feel the same wayregarding the different names for the one. I have found the one and in my search for a picture of what we have I found this picture. It is so unreal I think Im crazy because my loved ones dont believe I found him since he is married. But this picture is the most true . I said to myself
    this is me and my man. Thanks for following your intuition and drawing this. Im inspired to create my own art. Im intuitive and I got that he is my "soulmate" and "the one". Thanks
