The Different Types of Soul Contracts

negative soul contracts

It can be confusing to figure out what the different types of Soul Contracts really are. Since I literally wrote the book on Soul Contracts, and because I’ve been working with them professionally for almost twenty years as a Soul Level Coach, I’ve been able to simplify the types to make them easier to work with!

Take note: There’s a Soul Contract Q&A at the bottom of this page!

The challenge around learning the different types of soul contracts is that it’s not like you can look them up on the web or ask your Mom or doctor. Your personal Soul Contracts are exactly that: personal! First let’s get some background on Soul Contracts, so you have a strong foundation from which you can start understanding your own!

Soul Contracts (they’re not what you think!)

Before you embodied into being THIS body and in this lifetime, your Soul was super busy. You soul determined what lessons you needed to learn (called Soul Lessons) during your next lifetime to evolve and grow and move toward enlightenment.

Types of Soul Contracts #1 Soul Contracts Between Souls

This type of Soul Contract is the agreement that occurs between two souls before embodiment. Before you became Jane or John Smith, your soul got together which a whole bunch of other souls (human and animal) and figured out how you would help one another evolve in your upcoming lifetime.  Sounds great right? The challenge is that most of the time, you (as the human attached to that soul) has no clue how this or that relationship is helping you evolve. Sure, your soul knows but it’s up to your human self to find out. It’s an interesting little system that has been put together for us. The more you work toward “getting” these relationships, the the more access to support and growth you have. 

Types of Soul Contracts #2 Negative Soul Contracts

Don’t confuse Soul Contracts Between Souls, created before embodiment with Negative Soul Contracts, created during your lifetime. This is a completely different type of Soul Contract. You create these contract create during  your lifetime when you’re trying to prevent yourself from experiencing a negative belief. For example, perhaps when you were a kid your parents disappointed you again and again. As a result, you began to believe that other people can’t come through for you and the best solution was to never reach out for help. While at the time, these workaround contracts may seem like a good idea, but as you grow older, they will likely start getting in your way somehow. Never being able to ask for help could be a problem!

Like Soul Contracts between souls, Negative Soul Contracts also help you evolve. Their road is just a bit bumpier. Feel like you’re a good person because you help others despite yourself? Perhaps, you’re someone who can’t break your word or maybe every time you make a friend you end up resenting them because they demand so much from you. These are all examples of Negative Soul Contracts.

Type of Soul Contracts #3 Animal Soul Contracts

In an Animal Soul Contract, your Soul and the Soul of your pet determined (pre-incarnation) how you were going to assist each other in your upcoming lifetime. For example, your dog may have contracted to assist you in learning to have a bigger voice by being very aggressive. In order to master the lesson in the Soul Contract between you and your dog, you’re then pushed to step as the alpha. As you work on this Soul Contract, your new found Alpha behavior will help you provide a better, more secure life for him.  (It’s a win-win!)

The Benefits of Addressing Your Soul Contracts

When you address these two types of Soul Contracts (Between Souls and Negative), you get receive a lot of benefit.

If you’re addressing your Between Souls Type of Soul Contract, it means you’re learning why someone is in your life. Or you’re learning to evolve through your relationship with them. 

If you’re addressing your Negative Type of Soul Contract, your working on shifting the underlying negative belief. For example, that others won’t come through for you because you’re not important enough. 

When you start working with your Soul Contracts, your relationships change for the better. Your work feels more fulfilling – or you leave your job for a more fulfilling one.  Maybe you finally feel comfortable living outside the box (perhaps you start your own business). Or maybe you finally feel happy taking care of yourself (after all, “selfish” is not a four-letter word).

Types of Soul Contract Questions and Answers

How is a Soul Contract different from a Soul Purpose?

Your Soul Purpose is what you came here to do. Once you align with the path of your Soul Purpose (in other words that amazing “thing” you dream about achieving) you’ll feel wonderfully fulfilled. Soul Contracts help you learn a lesson or master something that your Soul has been struggling to understand. 

Do we have Soul Contracts with animal and person important to us?

It’s going to sound crazy, but we actually have Soul Contracts with every single being we come into contact with in our lives. This includes all people, family, friends, acquaintances as well as pets and other animals. 

Can I change the Soul Contract between myself and another person or animal?

Contrary to popular belief, you cannot change any type of Soul Contract. These were all put in place by your Soul so that you could master something very important. You CAN however work to understand it and as you do that, things may get easier between you and the other person. This could mean that that person has to leave your life. Mastering a Soul Contract does not often result in the exact outcome you are looking for. For example, a woman may end up leaving her husband if her contract with him was to learn how to speak up – and when she starts working on this, he can’t handle it. The result wouldn’t necessarily be that the two would begin to get along – it might be that the woman realizes her husband will never be able to listen, so she leaves.

Can a Soul Contract stop me from creating what I want in life?

Absolutely! Soul Contracts can stop people from having success, make them overly loyal, have trouble telling their boss off, feel like shouldn’t try at something because they’ll probably fail and more. But rather than focusing there, what about focusing on all that you can achieve as you master these agreements!

    Hi,

    I had a vow with my soul contract, but we broke up and now he’s managed to marry someone else with a similar name, so he managed to get around the vow. What happens now? Would I have to repeat another life time with him in the next life time to clear the karma between us? Can I just go and happily marry someone else? Then what happens? Because I will have karma with the new person I marry won’t I? Or does it not matter at all? This karma and soul contract thing is giving me a headache. When i hadn’t known about it, life looked easier.

    Danielle, I’ve followed you for quite awhile – since I heard you on John Holland’s Hay House radio show. I’m very interested in the soul contracts and want to work on those with you – but can you briefly say whether this is different than LBL’s – or would you need to get to the LBL state to find out about your soul contracts? I’ve read all of Brian Weiss and Michael Newton’s books and have found a new world all in an attempt to overcome the devastating grief of losing my beloved dog, Sasha, a year and a half ago. I still have her brother (14) but in reply to Marisa (above) – I don’t think you ever get over it either – but now I have hope that we had many lives previously and will have many more to come. Thanks, Karen

    Hi there,
    I saw your interview on the Juicy Living tour, and was very fascinated when you spoke of each species, each animal has it’s message/purpose/soul contract. Can you tell where I might find a link to that information. I am interested in those interpretations.

    Thank you!

      HI Alysia,

      I do have an Mp3 called Animal Soul Contracts – and it’s in there that you’ll learn the general idea. I haven’t written out any type of list for what the general species soul contracts are – but it’s a good idea. Perhaps I’ll do that in the future!

    Hello Danielle, I have been reading your blog as well as your website. When my dog passed I or I should say my daughter found your website. I became very drawn and comforted by your way of your thinking. I think I listened to your talk part one and two quite a few times. It seemed to calm me down. I have lots of anxiety since the passing of Karli, We had such an incredible bond not sure I will ever get over. I just want you to know that I have an appt with you for an animal reading and I am looking foward to it very much.. Take care, Marisa Slaiby
