We see different shades of relationships throughout, some of them are healthy and some of them are not good for our overall well-being. When we start bonding in a relationship, it is quite challenging to understand what’s exactly happening until and unless the unhealthy connection starts breaking down. Soul ties are one of them!
Some people associate twin flames with soul ties, however, both terms are different with different meanings. Soul ties are one of the highly misunderstood connections. They are not just about intimate or sexual connections but also spiritual connections that help strengthen the connection between two people.
In this blog, I am working on understanding soul ties, their signs, and how to break unhealthy soul ties. So, let’s get started!
What is Soul Tie Connection?
A soul tie connection happens when someone deeply enters your soul. Well, it’s the most misunderstood concept because soul tie is not about the connection you feel after building sexual connections with someone.
A soul tie connection presents a bigger perspective… A soul tie is also about connecting emotionally or spiritually with people such as friends, co-workers, romantic partners, family members, and pets. Soul ties are resilient and long-lasting bonds. However, not all soul ties are positive; they can also be destructive or unhealthy. Therefore, it is really important to understand the formation, types, and signs to keep healthy connections maintained and break unhealthy connections.
1. Formation of Soul Ties
When two people start connecting mindfully, spiritually, and physically, a soul tie is formed. They often share commitments, promises, or vows that enhance or strengthen the bond between two people. In order to form a soul tie, it is important to connect with someone emotionally.
2. Different Types of Soul Ties
Per psychology, soul ties can be emotional, spiritual, social, and physical.
Physical Soul Ties: Formed during intercourse
Emotional or Protective Soul Ties: Formed when two people share common feelings (can be romantic or platonic relationships)
Spiritual Soul Ties: Formed when two people connect on a higher level or experience a spiritual connection
Social Soul Ties: Formed between co-workers, friends, or family members
