A while ago, we sent out Marriage Message #267 on the subject of Soul Mates. But this time I want to elaborate more on this issue concerning soul ties.
I want to say right here that my husband Steve and I (and other marriage educators) believe that the closeness of our “souls” as “mates for life” does happen. But it is more because of what we intentionally do to grow our partnership, rather than being born as partners who need to find one another. If you haven’t read that message on “Soul Mates” I encourage you to do so to learn more.
But the reason I’m writing this particular blog is because of a comment we received afterward. This person asked us to address the subject of soul ties and how to break them. I agreed.
I have to say that I’m no expert in this but I do agree with something I heard Paula White say on this issue. She said:
“Some of us are dealing with things in our present, caused from things that attached itself to us from our past.”
I agree. I know many other people don’t agree with soul ties. But all I can tell you is what I’ve seen and what I’ve experienced in my own life.
I’ve seen women (and men) who had been sexually abused at some point in their lives who can’t experience emotional freedom because of the imprint this made upon them. I’ve also seen this happen to those who have had sex outside of marriage. They appear to be “tied” in some way to the person they gave themselves.
It seems to be most often a “tie” that happens because of a past sexual experience (whether voluntary or forced). It appears to make an imprint upon their soul, where it connects them to this other person —often for life. That is especially true if it was a negative experience.
But I’ve also seen that this “soul tie” can be broken if it is properly dealt with at some point. A counselor can be helpful (and many times is needed). And of course, prayer —working this through with the Lord is vital. This is what happened with me and what I’ve seen happen with others who have eventually found freedom.
Researching Soul Ties
In my research, I found an article posted on the To Love, Honor and Vacuum web site. I believe it explains a few important points on this issue that can give you additional needed insights. It’s written by Danielle Tate, who “explains what soul ties are, and how we can break them.”
I also came across a You Tube video where Paula White goes through prayers and a thorough step-by-step explanation of what a soul tie is, why they should, and how they can be broken in order for people to experience freedom in their lives and in their marriages.
If you are experiencing something in your marriage that is personally holding you back emotionally, physically, and/or spiritually, please watch the following video. May the Lord minister to you and help you in the ways you need it as you do:
