Soul Ties: What They Are and How to Break Them

Soul Ties: What They Are and How to Break Them

A few months ago, I went to a conference titled Breakthrough Healing Workshop with Patrick and Joy Campbell. It was the first time in a long time I had come across a conference I really wanted to attend in our area. Patrick and Joy shared their personal stories and covered topics like unforgiveness, inner healing, the occult, generational sin, and soul ties. They were trained in exorcism and deliverance for the laity and now travel North America helping other people understand and heal from demonic influence or attachments. I very briefly covered soul ties in my book, but I learned so much more about them from the Campbells that I wanted to share that information.  

A soul tie is a spiritual bond or connection to another person or persons. They can be good or bad. Good soul ties are created in love, like the bond between husband and wife, parent and child, or through a close friendship. In marriage, this bond or soul tie is formed through the deep love the two share and through their intimate union. The bond between parent and child is natural, and between friends, it is formed through their love, care, and support of one another. Bad soul ties are connected to sin and affect people negatively. But people are not aware of this fact. Nor are they aware of how disturbing the effects on their lives can be. According to Patrick Campbell, when you sin with another person, you can inherit their vulnerabilities or imperfections. That is serious.

Can you not see that the man who is joined with a prostitute becomes one body with her? Scripture says, “The two will become one flesh.”

1 Cor 6:16

Ungodly or sinful relationships create bad soul ties. There are lots of examples, but the most obvious is sexual sin. When two people have sex outside of marriage a soul tie is formed between them. But it goes even further than that. They can also be spiritually connected or soul-tied with every other person the other has had sex with. It is the same with drugs. If you do drugs with someone, a soul tie exists. But there can also be a soul tie between you and the person who made the drugs, as well as the person who sold them. How much more difficult will it be to conquer an addiction if you are not only carrying your weaknesses but quite possibly other people’s as well? You can apply this mindset to all kinds of sins: prostitution, orgies, incest, abortion, New Age or Occult practices, gangs, and so on.

Soul ties can also exist without one’s consent through violence perpetrated against another person. As difficult as it is to understand, anyone who is the victim of any kind of trauma, assault, abuse, or crime can be soul-tied to the person or persons who hurt them. In these situations, there is no sin on the part of the victim. It is the sin committed against the victim that creates the soul tie. Using an example from my life will make this more clear. A soul tie was formed between me and the witch who attacked me because she was secretly assaulting me through witchcraft. So there was no sin on my part; the soul tie existed because she sinned against me.

Once people know about soul ties, they can break them and free themselves from those connections. I learned how we become attached to other people years ago through different books, and I prayed that God would show me those connections, and He did. I knew there was an invisible connection between me and the person who attacked me through witchcraft, but I didn’t know how to break it, so I kept researching. I read Unbound by Neal Lozano and Exposing Spiritual Witchcraft by Jonas Clark, which wasn’t a catholic book, but it was still very informative. Jonas Clark’s book was the first reference I found on soul ties. Father John Hampsch was another amazing teacher of deliverance ministry/prayer, generational healing, and many other spiritual ailments. His ministry played a huge role in my healing from witchcraft. Patrick and Joy Campbell’s workshops follow along the same lines. They are new and fresh. People will benefit greatly from their help.

So how do you break free? You need to identify any soul tie you can remember, going as far back in time as is necessary. Childhood, high school, young adulthood, or even yesterday, whatever you can remember. Most importantly, confess any sins associated with these memories, and pray prayers of deliverance to sever any connections. You won’t remember everyone’s name. Don’t let the devil distract you with this. God will reveal them to you when and if He deems it necessary. One more thing that I believe is important. If you remember someone and there is still a physical connection to that person, you must dispose of it. What I mean by that is, if you have any objects they gave you, like jewelry, clothing, a letter, or card, whatever it may be, it may seem insignificant, but it isn’t, so throw it away. You don’t want any attachments to them at all. If you follow this protocol, you should be free from these attachments. The prayers below will aid you in breaking these soul ties.

Deliverance Prayer for the Laity: Father Chad Ripperger

Don’t let the following prayer confuse you. Determine what type of soul tie you need to break, heart or mind, and pray the prayer.

I return that, I reclaim that, and I invoke the precious blood of Jesus to wash over me and to wash over them, and all of our loved ones. Protect us from any retaliating spirits, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

Lord Jesus Christ, in your love and mercy, pour Thy precious Blood over me so that no demon or disembodied spirit may retaliate against me. Saint Michael, surround me with thy shield, so that no evil spirit may take revenge on me. Queen of Heaven and Saint Michael, send down the legions of angels under your command to fight off any spirits that would seek to harm me. All you saints of heaven, impede and retaliating spirit from influencing me. Lord, Thou art the Just, the Avenger of the wicked, the Advocate of the just, we beg in Thy mercy, that all we ask of Mary, the angels, and the saints of heaven be also granted to all our loved ones, those who pray for us, and their loved ones, that for Thy Glory’s sake, we may enjoy They perfect protection. Amen
