****Did you miss my webcast on soul ties? If so, listen to the replay here> 7 reasons you have a Sexual Soul Ties and don’t know it****
Often our current relationships or marriage suffer, because we are still caught up in our past both emotionally and spiritually. By spiritually I mean unhealthy sexual soul ties. Sexual soul ties often have us caught in a cycle of dysfunctional and unhealthy relationships. Well, it’s time to shed more light on this common issue.
So what is a soul tie? A soul tie is two souls tied together by the spirit. Mainly caused by sex or sexual abuse.
What does the Bible say about soul ties?
The Bible does not directly use the term “soul tie”, but it does say the following in Ephesians 5:31,” For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh.” Here we learn that the connecting of souls was created for husband and wife. OK, now let’s look at the Old Testament. In Genesis 2:24, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh.” Guess what? Jesus repeats the scripture over again in Mark 10:7, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh.”
This leads to my next point. In the eyes of God “the act of sex is marriage through consummation.” Every single time an unmarried person has sex they become married to that person. For example if someone has had twenty-five sex partners, they have probably been exposed to hundreds of other souls. If the other person had more than one partner, then you are also exposed to all their partners as well. In simple terms, you have sex with everyone they have had sex with. So as one can easily see this makes having a truly loving, intimate, and close union very difficult.
In Biblical times there was no wedding in the way it is viewed today, so becoming one flesh was marriage. Even today if a couple seeks a divorce in some states the judge will ask “Has this marriage been consummated?” Consummation means in legal terms to complete a marriage by sexual intercourse.
What other ways can soul ties form?
Soul ties are mainly formed through sexual intercourse, but they can also form emotionally. Please understand sex outside of marriage rips and tears the soul when one tries to break away. Remember you are joined as one, so when you break away it hurts you. What is left are the emotional scars. In my own life I have seen words even become a source of a soul tie. When people say, “I will love you forever” or “I got your back no matter what” you tend to hold on to those words when you have a soul tie because a co-dependency has been created.
Sexual abuse is another way soul ties can be formed. When someone has been sexually abused as a child and becomes an adult the soul tie can greatly affect their relationship. In my next blog I will explore how to break sexual soul ties.
Unhealthy relationships are another cause of soul ties. We can define these relationships as physically or emotionally abusive, manipulative, victim mentality and high levels of sexual lust. I personally believe soul ties are one of the main reasons women or men have a difficult time leaving emotional and abusive relationships. Join me next week as I discuss tips to overcome soul ties.
