Signs You've Formed A Soul Tie & How To Break It

If you feel a strong connection with someone, one that is deep and all-encompassing, chances are you may have formed a soul tie.

According to TikTok user @ilovemusicfestivals, who goes by "Father Britanny" and posts content related to spirituality as a "guide to the other side," a soul tie is "strings of energy that link the soul to another, created during intense spiritual and emotional intimacy."

Ministering Deliverance describes a soul tie as "a linkage in the soul realm between two people. It links their souls together, which can bring forth both beneficial results or negative results.

There are positive soul ties.

Positively, soul ties link two people together in the eyes of God. This creates a very strong connection between a couple.

There are also toxic soul ties.

Negatively, soul ties can be also used by the devil. When soul ties are formed through sexual intimacy outside of marriage, it defiles a person.

When a person still has feelings for someone after they have long been broken up, they have soul ties to blame because there are some remnants left.
