I don't want to give you false hope and say that everything will work out in 2 seconds flat, but it WILL work out and you WILL be freed.
The length of time solely depends on how much is needed to be done (i.e. how many soul ties you have) or how strong they are, and other details that pertain to your life. Of course I never discount God's miraculous healing at any time and any amount, so all I'll say is: wait in expectation, a great thing is about to happen.
I mentioned the above verse because I STRONGLY advise you to:
1. JOIN with 2 or 3 other people to PRAY.
I pray that you seek godly counsel. People of prayer, people who are MATURE in Christ and know about the spiritual realm and are fully CONTENT in helping you BREAK the chains. If you go with someone who's not fully involved in helping you, it's not going to really be a battle, so you need people who are going to fight with you in the spiritual realm.
I encourage you to seek people you TRUST, but if you don't know anybody yet, ask your pastor about the prayer team, and their gifting if necessary, and also pray for God to lead you to the right people.
2. Be OPEN with those people. They need to know everything. They will help you IDENTIFY what is in your life that needs to be taken out (e.g. if it's a spirit of greed or a generational curse etc.) It doesn't matter how humiliating or scarring it might've been, there's nothing that Jesus hasn't heard about and that He doesn't' know about and didn't die for, He's ready to hear you say it and come to Him for healing. Also in this case, if they're going to help you break the soul ties and move on, you'd have to confess any activity you might've done, or what was done to you and so forth, out loud. It might lead to a lot of forgiveness as well and proclaiming all these things, but it has to be spoken out loud. These people will be praying for you and with you whilst you do this so you can break the chains.
It might seem like the first two would've done it all, but if let's say the people spend an hour with you, you'd still need to go back and talk to God. It's now more about anticipating a breakthrough in your life. I would STRONGLY suggest three days fasting (morning to 5 or 6pm), but like I said, it also depends on your conviction as well.
4. Exchange other things for PRAYER.
It will be time to sacrifice.
I once read that in order for you to know that you're being deceived or that things are not in line, you'd have to be so FILLED with the light that you can IDENTIFY what's NOT of light. It might take time, but start filling yourself with light and also reading about the area you're going through (e.g. how break soul ties or how they are formed etc.) Get knowledgeable about it because one day God's going to use you to help somebody else.
5. MOVE ON.
Literary move on. You're ready for a new life. No more connections with the past. Clean your room, clean your closet, clean your boxes. It's time to get rid of all things that come from those soul ties. It's time to move on.
When I think of this part, what comes to mind is Luke 17:32.
Luke 17:32 has one line and it says: "Remember Lot's wife!"
Now, you know that if there's an exclamation mark it means something. It's very important that you remember her.
If you don't know the story, Lot, and his wife were escaping Sodom and Gomorroh which was a place full of sin and God had rained down burning sulfur to destroy it. God told them that whatever they did, NOT to look back. Lot's wife, looked back, and she turned into a PILLAR of SALT (Genesis 19:26).
Remember Lot's wife.
Don't look back.
Once you're done, you're done. You might be "tempted" to go back there, but don't look back. If you want an accountability partner, I encourage you to get one, otherwise keep praying for God to take that urge away and any pull as it was a soul tie that needed removing.
It later on says in that passage: if you CLING to your LIFE, you will LOSE it, and if you let your life GO, you will SAVE it (v.33)
Jesus want's to take it all from you. He wants to save you. It's a process, but it is one that is worth it.
God bless you in your process and journey of removing soul ties! God wants to see you healed and He loves you very much! I'll be praying for you as well.
God bless you!
In Christ we pray,
