What if I told you that you planned your life prior to being born? You chose the lessons, experiences and life events ahead of time. In this post I’m going to share what a soul contract is and why it’s important. I hope it sheds light to your current life experience and offers healing or understanding in one way or another.
As I’ve embraced my Spiritual awakening, I’ve come across the concept of soul contacts. From the first time I’ve learned about them, I felt an inner knowing that felt like a reminder or confirmation to this information. I’ve gathered the following information from a variety of sources throughout the years. I’ll link some resources below if you want to dive deeper. So I invite you to read this post with an open mind and take what resonates, as always.
What is a soul contract?
A soul contract is a non physical agreement you enter on a soul level before you are born. You create this agreement with a team of non physical benevolent beings including but not limited to your spirit guides, angels, higher dimension beings, etc. With this team, you decide the type of life you want to experience before you’re physically incarnated in human form. This cosmic team stays with you during your physical lifetime and is available and ready to guide you when you call on them for help.
We choose these soul contracts with other souls prior to being born. These agreements mutually benefit both souls, despite what it may seem. For example, a son and father can agree on the type of relationship they’ll have in their lifetime in order to achieve lessons such as compassion, patience, etc to be learned. Finally, a soul contract includes life events, experiences and choices that you’ll make during your lifetime in order to learn lessons and evolve on a soul level. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
Why does this matter?
Learning about the theory of soul contracts matters because it offers a deeper understanding about life on Earth. If this is your first time learning about this, it might sound pretty “out there” but I invite you to continue doing your own research with an open mind and open heart.
Learning about soul contacts can give you power because it offers a different perspective to your current life experience. I know for me, whenever I ask myself why I chose the experiences I’ve had, it makes me feel a little better because it gives me a sense of ownership. There’s less of a victim mentality and it pushes me to continue soul searching to learn the lessons and continue to evolve.
I know some of you might be thinking, “but wtf Cande, why would I choose *insert horrible experience here*?” Yes, that’s a valid thought that can cause confusion and pain but I want to offer that those challenges have served a purpose towards healing. They are getting you to the next level of who you are meant to become. And not to mention, you had the power, strength and all the resources needed in order to overcome them all along.
Other people’s role
Before I proceed, I realized I forgot to mention that one of the factors associated with these contracts is that we forget EVERYTHING when we are born. It would probably be too overwhelming to remember our previous lifetimes anyway. But yeah, we get to choose the roles we play in each other’s lives and how we meet. You have a core group of people who have agreed to help you learn lessons. Your parents, romantic partners, and even significant relatives and friends make up this group.
Specific people enter your life at different points to help in your ascension getting you closer to your soul’s purpose. You both choose ways that’ll help you remember each other in this lifetime. I’m sure you’ve felt synchronicities or “coincidences” before. You have probably also felt a deep feeling that you know someone on another level after meeting them for the first time. That’s all part of the plan lol.
Other people are vital in helping you in your evolution. As mentioned above, both parties benefit from the role. For example, a mother may choose to have a disabled daughter in order to learn patience and compassion. The disabled child agrees on her role because not only does she love her “mother” on a soul level, but she gets to learn certain lessons too.
So now that you’ve learned what a soul contract is and are reflecting on your major past experiences in this lifetime, I hope it’s offering you a new perspective. I want to share that you have free will regardless of any agreements you made prior to incarnating in this body. What I mean by that is that you can choose to take a different path at any point. You are not bound by a soul contract against your will even if you decided on it before being born.
The purpose of some agreements is to fulfill a karmic cycle. Therefore, if you choose to break a contract you may choose to reincarnate to try to fulfill it in the next lifetime. Life is happening for you NOT to you. You are a powerful being that is a part of Source. You have everything you need inside of you.
I hope this post landed for you in one way or another. Once again, you are a Spiritual being having a human experience. You can dive deeper into this topic by looking up YouTube videos or other blog posts about it. Also, you can work with an intuitive healer to gather personalized information about your soul’s purpose. Or you can try hypnotherapy to look into past lifetimes. During my first past life regression, I went back to a lifetime where my father (in this lifetime) was my son in a previous one. I knew this on a soul level that can’t really be explained. You just know. I invite you to explore all of this if you feel called.
