I’ve been working with Soul Contracts for many years now – and I’m often asked why some Soul Contracts are desirable while others are not. There are really two types of major soul contracts. First, there are those that we took on before coming into a human lifetime (when our souls are in their highest vibration). These are the contracts that we intended to use to help ourselves master challenges. These type of contracts usually involve a relationship with another person, place or animal and although often difficult to experience, their result is always for our greatest and highest good. An example of this would be when a soul (before coming into a lifetime) says “in this upcoming lifetime I want to work on speaking up – so I’m going to pair up with Harry over there so that I can learn about that through my experiences with him.” Most of these contracts are not removable and they will stay with each person for their entire life, helping growth and transformation to occur.
The second type of Soul Contract occurs while we are IN our human bodies and are usually made in a moment of fear. They rarely serve our greatest and highest good (although in the long, long run like anything else they always do.) An example of one of these contracts would be a husband who, after a night of cheating, guiltily vows to stay with his wife forever or a mother who, upset because she lost her son at the supermarket, upon finding him commits that she will “always take care of her son no matter what.” These are all contracts made out of a negative emotion – intending to put a system in place that will prevent hurt or pain from ever happening again. But what happens when this wife passes over? With this contract in place, the man won’t be able to find love again. What happens when, in a different lifetime, the mother and son come back as sister and brother? The soul contract no longer applies – but the soul strives to adhere to it.
Soul Contracts are very complicated and yet not so complicated. You have a Soul Contract with every person, animal and event in your life – intended to help you grow as a human and re-discover who you are. Just become conscious of your words and how powerful they are and you can avoid making any Soul Contracts that won’t serve you!
