Soul contracts can be with many different people throughout your life, some that you may still know or some that were only in your life for a short period of time.
A soul contract is an agreement made between two souls and between lives. The promise is based on how they can help each other in their next life or human existence. The agreement is based on lessons that the souls need to learn and they promise to help each other in teaching them how to deal with a particular situation. Have you ever felt like you’ve met someone before or felt like you already know someone that you’ve just met? A soul contract is not necessarily a love relationship, it can also be a mother, father, sister, brother, friend or work colleague. Whichever relationship it is, it also does not have to be lifelong. That person may only be in your life for the time that it takes for you to learn your lesson.
The life lesson was learnt and so the soul contract was achieved
SOUL CONTRACTS IN LOVE
A ‘twin flame’ relationship – or a relationship which is solid and long-term would have been bound as a soul contract. These souls would have made an agreement or a promise to each other that they will love each other, fulfil each other’s needs and eternally be together happily. With this agreement may come lessons, perhaps learning boundaries or learning to be in a relationship where there is mutual self-respect. Often long-term partnerships who have soul contracts will have experienced difficult relationships prior to meeting each other. The difficult relationships they suffered would have too been soul contracts and ones that they learnt from. For example, if a partnership has ended because one person did not have respect for the other, the agreement has been fulfilled – the person who was not respected has realised their limits and would not accept this, ending the relationship. The life lesson was learnt and so the soul contract was achieved.
SOUL CONTRACTS IN WORK
A soul contract between work colleagues may be something like; working with someone who was very difficult to see eye to eye with and would never listen to your opinion. Working with a boss who was a bully or who showed no respect for your skills. Your soul contract with this person may have been to not take unfair criticism, to not be bullied – or for them to ‘learn’ to listen to and respect others’ opinions. They may have made an agreement with you that they needed to learn to listen – your agreement with them may have been that you needed to learn to stand up for yourself.
The agreement from the child to the mother could be that they have undeniably taught them unconditional love
SOUL CONTRACTS IN FAMILY
A family soul contract is concentrated from the first day of existence. A soul contract between a mother and a child is that the mother will teach the child to be independent, eventually to be a strong adult and responsible for their own choices as they go through life. The agreement from the child to the mother could be that they have undeniably taught them unconditional love but it could also be that later in life, they teach them to develop strengths to their weaknesses. It only takes one person (who gives you unconditional love) to show you that you can do something, or make an important decision with a leap of faith and to trust in yourself.
Soul contracts often have emotional characteristics – whether good or bad.
HOW TO RECOGNISE SOUL CONTRACTS
Soul contracts can be with many different people throughout your life, some that you may still know or some that were only in your life for a short period of time. Any relationship (whether love, work or family) can be a soul contract but it is not common for casual or not so important relationships to be a soul contract.
Soul contracts often have emotional characteristics – whether good or bad
Romantic relationships are often soul contracts
A soul contract can often have a ‘meant to be’ feel to them or it can feel like you have met that person before
Soul contracts are made as an agreement to teach you lessons
Soul contracts are sometimes renegotiated behind the scenes if situations in your life have changed from outside influences
Soul contracts are made to enable us to help each other so we can spiritually grow
Each agreement is made to fine tune our higher selves.
Remember that a soul contract is an agreement that was made between you and another person before you were both born. If you have learnt some important lessons in your life, you can guarantee that they came to you through the soul contract you made with that person. The lessons are not just for you; you would have also taught that person the lesson they wanted or needed to learn. Soul contracts are an invisible choice that we make as our souls transcend through our many lives, each agreement is made to fine tune our higher selves.
