A friend of mine asked me yesterday: “What is a soul contract?” I answered her and later have decided to present the answer today. Learn how to recognise and fix a soul contract.
What Is a Soul Contract
Soul contracts are agreements we make with other souls before we are born. Souls we have contracts with will be those to bring deep changes into our lives through unique connection. These contracts are made with a special purpose, and that is to teach us important lessons we’ve chosen to learn before reincarnation.HeartBreak Triage
Soul contracts can be positive when wonderful, loving connections between people help to create growth, transformation, and even access to unconditional love. Unfortunately, not all soul contracts are so fortunate. Some have got ups and downs, but there are also cases when painful blocks are present and they stop people from doing good things and happiness in their life. Just think of not being able to fulfil your dreams, have a wonderful marriage, find a best friend, or even become successful in business.
Soul Contracts vs. Karmic Bonds
Now we need to distinguish between spiritual contracts and karmic bonds. I have described the first one above. The biggest difference between karmic bonds and soul contracts is that the first is more rigid and tends to have urgent energy for a given purpose. People meet together to return for a favour, e.g. to repay a debt or make amends for past misdeeds. Soul contracts choose to hang out together for a variety of reasons, not just one.
Types Of Soul Contracts
I will describe to you the five most common soul contracts. Bear in mind that contracts can vary depending on the relationship, e.g. with your mother, child or partner.
This conflict means that you are looking for your Soul-Mate throughout your life and only have one relationship after another being a failure, dis-ease, sadness and heartbreak. The loneliness soul contract is probably the most difficult to handle. It happens because even if the soul finds someone, he or she will still feel lonely somehow.
You can find all the victims of abuse or toxic people, who have no courage or willingness to cut the ties. These victims often say “Yes, he’s pretty cruel but family is family” or “I’ve no choice, he’s my boss”? The so-called loyalty to tradition, vows, rules paralyses the soul and makes him or her helpless.
Martyrs nearly never say “no”, putting their desires and needs aside to help others. They do it even if they will suffer themselves, as a sacrifice. These souls do not want to be called “selfish”. But you CAN focus more on yourself. It will not mean you will never help another person once you have broken this soul contract. Instead, it will allow you to make better decisions about who to help and when.
If you always feel anxious, nervous or worried it means that your soul might be holding you to this type of contract. In many cases, this contract has been taken out some time in a past life that your soul still believes is valid. Souls choose this contract to heighten their awareness in order not to be surprised or hurt again. Releasing this contract will polish your intuition.
5. Rocking the Boat
A soul with “rocking the boat” contract will cause trouble everywhere. However, he or she does not want to be in the limelight, rather stand in the background and blend in. In this way, the soul minimises the danger of being pointed out of penalised. This attitude hampers your opportunities, e.g. for running a business. Release this soul contract to open up and go on your own path.
How To Handle Soul Contracts
So, what can you do if you realize that perhaps you have been acting against a soul contract that you no longer want? You are probably wondering how to break it. Here are some tips:
Understand the Agreement
The truth is that you cannot break any soul contract that you want. Make an effort to understand how this agreement has both served and hindered you. Do it in writing.
Become Aware Of The Soul Contract
Awareness is a must if you want to break a soul contract. Therefore, spend some time witnessing it. Understand how it has been working in your life. For example, if loyalty is the issue, take a few weeks to notice when you do not want to end an abusive relationship or withdraw from an unfavourable agreement.
Now, when you know how your soul contract works in your case and what patterns you use in your behaviour, the time has come to change them. Ask yourself: “Do I want to follow the same pattern or do I want to make a different decision this time?” Sometimes you will make the same decision and you will see the same results.
However, with practice, you will start breaking the contract by making healthier choices. To speed the process up, use automatic writing which means writing whatever comes to your mind, preferably as the first thing in the morning.
Changing the pattern and then your soul contract does not mean making good or bad decisions. It is a process. You are aware of the contract, but take some action to adjust it to your needs. Your goal is happiness, holistic happiness.
In a Nutshell
Today you have learnt what soul contracts are and how to amend them so that you can be happy. There are five types of contracts. Changing them starts with an understanding of the soul contract, then observing who it works and finally acting differently, by changing the quality of your thinking, words and deeds. Good luck.
