Soul Contracts

Part of my spiritual pathway has led me to information relating to Soul Contracts and what these hold for us in our current life.

For those that are not familiar with the concept, a Soul contract is a bond you form with a fellow person in spirit, for the next life you have on earth.

This could range from simply pledging to meet and bring enhancement to that life through friendship and love all the way to the extreme challenges we face in life and some of our most trying moments.

I believe all these contracts are formed for the purpose of lessons that teach and expand our conciseness.

A few examples from my own life -

My Wife - I fully believe that we met in previous lives and have been in love before. WE both fully believe that this is the first life we will experience children together as a couple, which we have not in previous lives. There are many challenges we have faced and overcome together and i could not imagine facing these with any other person. To me this only further cements that certain small details in our life were pre-planned with each other.

My Spiritual mentor - When I met her it was a time in my life where I was essentially completely Atheist/Agnostic and had no religious or spiritual beliefs. Straight away I was enthralled with every word she said and wanted to instantly explore my spirituality further. It suddenly felt like I was welcomed home and with my mentor, it felt that we had been friends forever. It was clear we had connected previously in another life and this made it very easy to communicate and learn from each other. Once again it was clear we had pre-organised the meeting in this lifetime.


It is important to note, that i do not believe these soul contract to be 100% life encompassing and that we still have an element of free will to deviate from our plans, but sooner or later our contracts will play out and allow us to develop and learn lessons in this life that we have yet to master in other lives!

I hope this makes sense and would love to hear other peoples opinions on this.

The basic idea is that you make certain agreements just before birth as to how your life is to go . Certain things need to happen to clear karma , ect. Your guarding angles , higher self /masters , ect. help you along . Some believe this , others dont .

Your thoughts on this essentially mirror my own....when we come into this world an outline of challenges we will face .....and people we are meant to meet and interact with is set out....

However we are free to react to these people and events as we choose... so while the path has been layed ...but the outcome is in our hands.

Replying to both Desert Rat and Lucky 1, I think you both managed to explain it in a much simpler way than I managed too!

Glad to see others on a similar page to me!

Out of all things I am willing to believe, I don't think something along the lines of soul contracts is among them. Otherwise I wouldn't have made useless contracts with souls that turned out to be bad friends.

Personaly I dont think its a contract as such . More a life plan , an agenda . a list of things to do . If there not done in one life time then 2 or more .

This is kind of the point of Soul Contracts, to learn these lessons.

Can you think of what you learnt by having those bad friends?

I appreciate that this belief is not for everyone and i fully respect that :)

In that case, it seems that whatever sadistic prick that shoved those lessons down my throat wants me to despise humanity. And he/she succeeded.

Perhaps the lesson was picking better friends. ....

Maybe. I don't think we'll ever figure it out.
