A few months back I listened to a series of messages by Steve Harmon that he shared at The Gathering, a ministry of Anna Wingate up in the Tacoma/Olympia Washington area. One of the things he spoke about in-depth was about soul fragments — the things that give people multiple personalities. Interestingly enough, he has come to believe (and I have arrived at the same conclusion) that everyone has them and most of us just don’t know it. I ended up taking some time to talk to him and learn a bit more from him, and in the end we planned a time for a session of inner healing and deliverance with me.
Interestingly enough, the night before we had this session, I had the opportunity to work with a woman at my workplace who was having some issues and God freed me up so I was able to spend 2 hours with her doing inner healing and integrating fragments. It was a very effective session and we got a lot done. Not only that, but this was my first time ever to work with fragments — mine or anyone else’s! I have to admit I was a little nervous at first, but having done other inner healing work with people before there were only a few differences between that and what I’m already used to so I feel I took to it well. The woman also made it easy as she put herself into a light trance so we could call the fragments up.
Since working with my own fragments and observing interactions with others in light of this new perspective I have come to a better understanding of fragmentation, and the impact it has on our lives. The soul itself could almost be likened to a gemstone. It is moderately strong, but stressors in life act like a hammer, and when a hammer hits in just the right places over time the soul gem (my term) can crack and eventually cause pieces to chip off. This may seem harsh, but it is actually a protective mechanism. The majority of fragments form in younger years when children don’t have the coping mechanisms that adults ought to have developed, and these fragments carry with them the traumatic memories and difficult life experiences that children are unable to cope with. God designed the soul such that those pieces don’t fracture off into netherspace somewhere and disappear, but stay tenuously connected to the main body of the soul gem. Our job as believers when working with others in inner healing is to reconnect those fragments back to the original soul, eventually causing the soul gem to be whole once more.
There is a major difference between Jesus and the rest of us–and I’m not talking about His deity. He functioned as a human with the Holy Spirit empowering him just like the rest of us–the main two differences were no sin, and no soul fragments. Jesus solved the sin problem, cleansing our spirits for all time and eternity, and now the soul in its shattered state is the battleground. When we do inner healing, often we are healing wounds in the core soul, but at times the issues are hard to get at because they’re actually wounds the fragments carry.
God is accelerating the inner healing process in our lives, and what used to take years can now be accomplished in a much shorter time simply by working directly with a fragment, healing its inner wounds, performing deliverance on it and correcting its innacurate beliefs, and then reintegrating it into the core self. As this happens, the individual becomes more resilient, more able to deal with life stressors, and incidentally more able to function in Kingdom power and authority. Since the soul is no longer divided, the individual doesn’t have as much internal “double-mindedness”. There are no longer multiple “streams” flowing from the same source, but one clear gushing river of life that flows into everything he does.
