Sometimes - ok, oftentimes - life can be challenging. People we thought were one thing turn out to be another. Family and friends we depend on turn out to be undependable. The boss we thought was supporting us turns out to be competing with us instead.
Or are they?
Whenever we come across a challenge with another, we are also being offered an opportunity to grow. An opportunity to look beyond the surface of what's going on to the deeper purpose below. What if that person in your life who's driving you crazy is driving you crazy because you asked them to. Yes, I know it sounds insane! Why would anyone invite challenge and stress into their lives? Well because there's a Soul Contract in operation.
Soul Contracts are agreements we make with other Souls before we begin our life here on Earth. We know what it is we want to learn, resolve and grow through but we often need help to get there so we put some backup plans in place. Say for example, you have decided to tackle Impatience in this lifetime. You've learned about it previously, you've attempted to understand it but up until this lifetime, you simply haven't been quite able to fully integrate it - to teach it by example. So this time, you resolve to get there for sure.
Before you're born, you ask for help from other Souls to assist you, and they do. At a certain time in your life, this Soul (or Souls) will activate their part of the agreement and begin to push your Patience buttons. And they'll keep pushing until you see what's really happening - or you don't and decide to run away from it! At which point the next Soul will turn up to play their part. (Ever wonder why you seem to experience the same challenge over and over, just with different people?)
As each Soul turns up, you have another opportunity to look deeper to see the purpose behind all the button-pushing and if you do, you'll begin to work with the real reason they're there - your Soul Contract to learn, integrate and resolve Impatience.
