OK, first a Soul Contract is a commitment that two souls make to assist each other in learning some lesson while they are here on Earth. Imagine two souls out there, before embodiment having a little conversation.
“Hey Soul A, in this upcoming lifetime, I have to work on speaking up, will you help me with that?”
“Sure Soul D, I will! I’m going to be working on being more tuned into my emotions, will you give me a hand there?”
“Of course! Let’s meet up where we’re in late adolescense…” And so on…
A Soul Contract created in this way is beautiful, high-vibrating and meant to be discovered and nurtured and eventually mastered and completed.
The Law of Attraction on the other hand is a universal truth. You can translate is as “like attracts like” and if you think of it as an energetic law, it will be easier to understand. Have you ever had a day in which everything you did just worked perfectly? The weather was perfect, your breakfast was amazing, the conversation with the guy at the gas station was hilarious…? This is the Law of Attraction in action. If you hold an expectation or belief that everything is wonderful (or horrible or whatever) at a deep level, the universe will receive that message and send you experiences to match it.
Now, since every thing (idea, belief, behavior, thought) in our world is made of up energy – and that energy has a vibration, just like your belief that your day is going to be AMAZING, your Soul Contracts also send out a message – which the Universe receives and then, according to the Law of Attraction, gives you experiences to match. For example, let’s say there is a Soul Contract between you and your husband that is teaching you how to speak up. That Soul Contract will vibrate in its own specific way – throwing the message out to the universe that basically says “hey – please send me experiences so that I can exercise and master this Soul Contract with my husband!” You will start to receive plenty of opportunities and challenging moments to speak up.
The Law of Attraction works hand in hand with Soul Contracts to help you become the best person you can be – although sometimes if may not be comfortable. Step one for working with these concepts is to identify the Soul Contract (whether positive or negative) between you and another person. Just start there and you’ll be on your way!
