Broken Soul Overview Questions & Answers Discussed:
1. How do I know if I have a broken soul/broken heart?
Have you ever had a conversation in your head debating which action you would take next? Do you have a committee going on in your head accusing you of handling that last conversation wrong? Have you ever done something and then thought, “That is so unlike me, why did I do that?” Have you ever suddenly been filled with anger or sadness or depression and you have no idea why? Do you have an area or areas of your life in which you’ve done everything you know to change, but no amount of prayer, counseling, deliverance, or biblical teaching seems to help or bring lasting change and you’re still stuck in the same situation? Have you ever been told frequently that you said or did something that you don’t remember saying or doing? Have you found yourself somewhere and wondered how you got there? Do you ever feel like you are watching yourself do something or say something that you don’t mean to say or do? Do you have sin in your life from which you just can’t seem to get free? Are you missing years or significant periods of time in your life? Do you have missing memories? Do you ever feel like you have hours in a day or days in a week that you don’t remember at all or you don’t remember where you were or what you were doing? All of these are signs of a broken heart or a broken soul. Broken Soul/Broken Heart Definition: A Broken Soul occurs whenever a trauma is too great for a person to handle, usually during childhood. A broken soul can occur in response to the trials, stresses, and difficulties of life. It is a God- given coping or defensive mechanism in which parts or pieces of our own soul literally break off to help us deal with the trauma of a particular situation. While these fragments are very much a part of us, they have their own “personality, will and life” and often lie hidden or buried deep within us and we may not be aware of them. However, to find healing, these parts need to be “found” and addressed as well as dealing with the main person (or core personality). The good news is that Jesus came to heal those who have a broken heart/broken soul, according to Luke 4:18-19: 18 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me [a] to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are [b] oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” *
2. What causes a broken soul/broken heart?
When we are very young and abuse or trauma occurs in our lives, it is too much to handle. One way for a child to cope with that trauma is to disconnect or dissociate from the trauma because they don’t have the emotional capacity or brain development to process it. To dissociate means “to separate from”. The trauma or memory is stored in a separate part of or “walled off” in the brain, mind, heart and soul allowing the person to go on with life. Some people describe going somewhere else during abuse, such as to a make-believe world. After abuse or trauma, the child often does not remember what happened to him or her unless something triggers that memory forward in the brain. For example, Sally [not her real name], a 6 year old girl is abused sexually and emotionally by her babysitter. Her brain can’t handle the impact of the trauma, so it stores that memory separate from her normal memories. A part of Sally’s soul is now broken off and carries that trauma. Sally doesn’t remember any of the trauma; she is able to go to school the next morning and behave as if nothing happened. If repeated trauma happens to Sally over and over again, more of her soul splinters off or shatters while Sally continues to go to school every day, as if nothing unusual has happened. This continued shattering or dissociation can progress to the point that other personalities actually form causing what some may know as “multiple personality” or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). Dissociation is a remarkable coping mechanism that God has placed in our brains so that we can survive unspeakable traumas. While we may not remember the actual traumatic events, the trauma continues to affect us in multiple ways. Trauma creates brokenness which can cause great problems later in life: relationally with God and others, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and mentally. For example, children may experience night terrors, teenagers may have eating disorders, and people of any age may struggle with depression and even thoughts of suicide. In addition, the amnesia that surrounds the deeply buried memories begins to break down as we age allowing some of the memories and emotions to begin seeping through the barriers. Some traumas are accidental like a car wreck or accident, or they are brought about through the death of a friend or family member. Unfortunately, in our fallen world, Satan and evil people have learned to take advantage of dissociation to affect all kinds of evil and to use trauma to condition and program people. This is the mechanism used in Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA), in mind control programs like MK-Ultra and the Monarch Project, as well as by pedophiles and perpetrators of all kinds. Millions of people in the United States alone are suffering from the effects of this disconnection or dissociation. These traumas are taking a toll on their relationships, their marriages, their physical and mental well-being and more. They have no idea why they feel so messed up, broken or “crazy.”
3. Will I always be broken?
God desires for us to have whole hearts/whole souls so that we can worship Him: 4 “Hear, O Israel: [a] The LORD our God, the LORD is one! 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) * 37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ (Matthew 22:37) * Jesus died on the cross so that we can be saved. The Greek word for saved is sozo. It means to save, deliver, heal, preserve, be made whole. Encompassing more than being saved from our sins, it also indicates the healing of body and soul. An example of this is found in John 3:17 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.* Another example is in Mark 5:34 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. [sozo] Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.” * The power of the cross accomplished more than making it possible to deliver us from sin so that we don’t have to spend eternity in hell. If that’s all the cross accomplished, we should spend our lives in praise and thanksgiving for what He did. But that’s not all it accomplished. Because of the cross, we can be healed! We can be whole! That’s what broken soul ministry is all about, helping people encounter Jesus so that they are healed and made whole in body, soul, and spirit.
4. What happens in a ministry session?
A team of 2 to 3 people will meet with you in person at our ministry center or by video chat. Our teams usually have at least one man and one woman although this can vary. Each session begins and ends with prayer, asking God to lead the session. Initially we spend time getting to know one another. The person (you) shares their story and the reason why they have come. The prayer ministers may ask questions to clarify information from your intake form, share a little about themselves and the broken soul ministry process, explaining the process and answering questions etc. The ministers will “normalize the process” and reassure the person that there is no pressure involved – they don’t have to try to perform or do anything; either we will connect with a broken part or we won’t. As broken soul ministry begins we pray simply for coverage over 3 main areas of the process: 1. That the client will relax and trust God, knowing that He has them. 2. That any broken parts of their soul will feel safe. 3. That any demons will be separated from the person and any broken parts. Then we ask, “Lord, take us to wherever you (the Lord) want to go.” The individual may have emotions, thoughts that are not theirs, a vision(s), random thought(s) that seems like a distraction, or a memory. The person’s part is to report on whatever they see or hear. The prayer minister helps the individual process these thoughts, emotions, and memories. Jesus is invited to speak and minister to the person. The session can include teaching, prayer, testimonies, etc. For example, understanding how to hear the voice of the Lord is foundational to a relationship with Him, so we spend instructional time when necessary to help the person learn to hear God’s voice. Beliefs that are grounded in the truths contained in scripture are vital to your walk with the Lord, so we spend time teaching truths in the areas where lie-based beliefs are revealed during the ministry session. During this process memories and parts are healed, lies are exposed, and truth is revealed, etc. The individual grows more and more in the knowledge of who God is and who he/she is. As he/she comes to know God more and more, they come to know and understand God’s love, acceptance, forgiveness, and view of them. As the person gets free from fears, lies, and hurts, they receive healing and begin the process of being made whole. Jesus heals, makes whole, sets free! [NOTE]: The ministry process is not usually a quick fix. Depending on what an individual has had to endure, the process may take some time. Healing will happen each week, but often the devastation of years of abuse and trauma involves many significant encounters with God. Many people find this ministry to be a life-changing process through which they are able to see the Lord more and more clearly as His light shines into places that were previously darkened by sin and the enemy of our souls. Our prayer is that you will find the same as you journey ever closer to the Lord.
