Recently a lot of information – and synchronicities – have been showing up for me indicating that 1) my most difficult experiences had been contracted with my own and others’ souls before this lifetime, and 2) that I am to help others understand how this plays out in their own lives.
In case this idea is new to you, I’ve provided a link at the end of this post to an article about soul contracts (the kind having to do with relationships, although there can be many others). And, if this idea resonates with you – brings up insights, feelings, questions – please post your comments below (rather than emailing to me directly, so that others may benefit as well). Remember to post your comments BEFORE clicking on the link (and leaving this page).
If we think of life as a game, then the objective, it seems to me, is to learn the lesson and experience the growth from our life events as quickly as possible to end (or avoid) our suffering and become better, more loving and more powerful creators.
So, being bound and determined to win this game, these days I’m analyzing my experiences and learning my life lessons with a full heart and at warp speed. And in case you’d like to dive into this work yourself, here are some of the questions I ask my Higher Self.
Is this discomfort chronic or a one-time/temporary/unrelated incident?
Do I have a prior, soul-driven agreement to experience this?
[If it involves another person] Did we make this agreement together?
This allows me to thank them at the end when I’ve gotten the lesson and let go of the emotional attachment to the suffering, as hard as that is to imagine when I’m in the midst of it.
Now for the lesson-learning part…
What spiritual quality is involved in my experience? Is it blocked – perhaps by a belief – or deficient (for whatever reason)?
There are many qualities to consider – it could be love and connectedness, freedom, goodness, power, humility, responsibility, integrity, trust, safety, etc., etc.
If I absolutely knew it to be true, what knowing would end the pain and conclude the lesson (with an A+)? [This must be about you, NOT about someone else.]
Here are some examples to get you started:
- I’m a magnificent, Divine being.
- I have everything I really need right now.
- God/Goddess/Spirit loves me.
- Life is eternal.
- I planned well, and my rewards are coming.
- I’m safe from harm.
If I’m not ready to accept that, what COULD I accept as a first step?
- I’m growing stronger with each passing day.
- I have many blessings in my life.
- There are people who love and value me.
Now spend a few moments breathing in the knowing and releasing the judgments that have gotten in its way up to this point. Feel the peace. Feel the bliss.
Finally, offer gratitude to whoever has helped you learn this lesson for the agreement they made with you so long ago.
Until next time, love yourself unconditionally and never stop!
