Who we are and our entire life are part of
our Soul Agreements. Soul
Agreements are decisions made in Soul
before coming into embodiment. These decisions are for the purpose
of Waking-Up to the Truth
of who we are as God.
They encompass everything, including the color of our hair, our
parents, our relationships, our life lessons, our likes and dislikes,
our addictions, and so on.
Soul Agreements do not mean that things are
preordained. On the contrary. Nothing is predetermined because
we have free will. Free will operates at the level of ego. The
ego wants to maintain power and control. We have listened to
it all our lives. If we choose to listen to our ego rather than
to our Soul, we make choices based on personal will, our little
will, as opposed to Divine
Will. This choice, too, is part of our Soul Agreement. We learn
that listening to ego results in our remaining in drama,
in negative reactivity, in relationships based on conditional
Love rather than in peaceful, unconditionally loving relationships
for which we long. Decisions based on personal free will focus
on looking outside of the self for Love
rather than within.
We have another choice. Aligning with Divine
Will. Choosing to listen to our Divine Guidance, the guidance
of our Soul. If we
reference our Souls, we have no need of our little will/free
will. All is brought to us to assist us in our Soul Agreement
to Wake-Up. We see that everything in our world
is a Divine Set-Up to help us Awaken.
As we learn to listen to our Souls, Divine
Guidance, our lives take on a different shape. We experience
the abundance of Love, which we are, flowing through
us. We can see how each decision we made with Soul's Guidance
has led us to the place of greater clarity and Love.
Soul Agreements are for the purpose of learning
what we need to learn: Love. We learn through Divine Set-Ups.
Everything is a Divine
Set-Up. One of my Soul
Agreements was to learn to be more loving. My Soul and I
created events in my life to facilitate change toward my becoming
One of my Soul Agreements was to come into
embodiment through a fear-based family and develop a disease
with frightening implications for my future. This Divine
Set-Up gave me a great deal to work through at the egoic
level. It has helped me learn Love and compassion for myself
and others. I embraced the disease because it was a Wake-Up
call for me to change my life. It provided me with the opportunity
to shift my Consciousness and my life from fear-based
In looking at Soul
Agreements, the question arises: how can we view events which
we perceive as less than Love as part of a Soul Agreement to
experience Love? How
can we experience famine as Love, war as Love? From every event,
whatever the drama,
the ultimate lesson is Love. For every act we perceive as horrible,
devastating, sad, we raise our Consciousness
and ask Soul, "What's really going on here?" The answer:
"Bring even more Love into your Consciousness. More Love.
More Love. More Love." It begins with me. My
shift in Consciousness. This impacts all of humanity.
I give great thanks for my Soul Agreements
which have brought me to this point. I do not know what the Divine has in store
for me in the coming years, but I live in Trust and Faith
that it will lead me to greater Love
of Self and Others.
