What is a Soul Contract?

These days we’re hearing the call to serve more and more often. The Galactic Federation through Greg Giles said recently: “Many of you have come from distant star systems and even galaxies, and you are here now at this time to do whatever it is you do to assist in this birthing.” (1)

The GF through Blossom Goodchild asked us the same day if we were ready:

“Have you been rehearsing lines and are now ready to perform? For indeed it is very soon to be a time when veils are lifted and one’s strength must carry them through.

“Are you ready for this change? Are you ready to step into position and claim knowledge of all that you are? Standing ground upon your planet Earth. Standing up for/to all your hearts KNOWING?

“Can you say in your Truth when you ask your heart ‘YES I AM READY’? Because it is NOW … in these days that are just around your corner that you will need to KNOW that you are indeed in the position that you have been awaiting.” (2)

This is strong stuff. Most of us still may not know why we’re here. For us statements like these may come as a bit of a surprise. On what basis are they being made?

They are being made on the basis that we have set out for ourselves a soul contract, incarnational agreement or life plan. We do this in every life, but the soul agreement for this lifetime is more special than that for any other. Let’s look at soul contracts in general and, then later, at those made for this lifetime.

SaLuSa tells is that “life is quite orderly inasmuch that every individual has his or her own plan.” (3) However, not many people know about their life plans, Matthew Ward tells us: “A relative handful of Earth’s peoples know about soul contracts.” (4)

In reality, SaLuSa says, there is very little in our lives that is out of proportion or coincidental. All is covered in our pre-birth agreement.

“You may feel that many of your experiences are uncalled for, but we assure you that they are all connected with your life plan. Have you not been made aware that there is no such thing as coincidence, and that is the reason why they are so important to you? Naturally some coincidences appear of no real significance, and may be of minor importance. However, where you experience the harsh reality of life, it is for your spiritual understanding and development.” (5)

Saul agrees and tells us that knowing this should induce us to embrace all that happens in our lives.

“When life throws you a curved ball, embrace it! Nothing in your life happens by chance; every event you experience has been planned and has a purpose. However, while you remain immersed in the illusion, it is very difficult for you to perceive this, let alone understand what it is trying to show you. This is OK!

“You planned your life paths very carefully prior to incarnating to provide you with the lessons you chose to learn, knowing that when they occurred you would not understand them. Within your limited state of human consciousness, understanding of that order is impossible because the lives of all humans affect each other in myriad incomprehensible ways.” (6)

We make our soul contract before we are born, SaLuSa says: “Life plans are agreed before you come into your earth body.” (7) Almost all situations and relationships are planned, Archangel Uriel tells us, though our responses and their outcomes are left to our free will.

“The soul and ego create an agreement for each lifetime in which the soul provides the opportunities for learning and healing that the ego agrees to complete. There is no final agreement as to the outcome for that is within the realm of the ego and free will.” (8)

After birth, our free will plays the dominant role, SaLuSa says.

“We hear some question where freewill comes in, but there would be no plan unless you exercised it prior to incarnating. Freewill is still your prerogative, but having agreed a plan for your life you are drawn to those people and experiences that will help fulfil it. Your Guides are also very active in keeping you on track, but the final word is with you.” (9)

In each lifetime we decide what weakness or unlearned lesson we wish to tackle, SaLuSa tells us. We may return to the situation repeatedly until we learn its lesson.

“You will agree to what is needed to overcome any weakness that you may have had, and set up another challenge in this or a subsequent life.

“Each time you will expect to achieve success, but will try yet again if necessary. You agree to such testing through your Higher Self, and are aware of the need to progress spiritually. Because of duality and your many lives experiencing the dark side you constantly experience so many different challenges that often you can face the same problems several times in any one lifetime.” (10)

Matthew Ward explains how we incarnate with our missions known to us, but then forgetfulness sets in.

“As a part of Creator’s essence via the God of this universe, every soul incarnates light-filled and with specific missions that it chose prior to birth. The infant knows its godself and the missions in its lifetime soul contract, but all memory of that knowledge is forgotten as the baby adjusts to a dense body and adapts to parental expectations; as the child grows older, it encounters influences from other authority figures, too, and peers.” (11)

Saul explains why a veil of forgetfulness is made to descend on us.

“If you had knowledge of that it would be impossible for you to follow your chosen path because you would be constantly concerned about your standing and your effect on your group. Your paths are all perfectly planned so that the necessary interactions will occur at exactly the right moment, allowing you total freedom to choose an appropriate response in the moment, as it occurs.” (12)

But, deep down, the soul remains knowledgable of its mission and mirrors back to the ego the information it needs via the conscience, intuition or inner voice.

“The forgetfulness, which is at conscious level only, is part of the grand design that offers the person learning experiences; and all along the way, the soul sends messages to the consciousness in the form of conscience, intuition, instinct and other types of guidance in accordance with contract choices.

“Persons who heed those messages live true to their lifetime purpose and retain their light. The light starts to dim in those who ignore their souls’ messages, and if they continue to pay no heed to that guidance, they stray farther and farther from their chosen missions and their light keeps diminishing until only the spark that is their life force remains.” (13)

Unfortunately there is no way for us in 3D to know if another has departed from his or her soul contract or whether they are living it out to the letter, Matthew says.

“You have no way of knowing if that is what has happened to someone or if that person is following the soul contract to the letter by providing opportunities for others to complete third density karma and continue their soul evolvement.” (14)

The galactics, masters and celestials know better than to judge those who are working out their life’s lessons, SaLuSa informs us.

“There is no judgment at the higher levels, and we simply see beautiful souls making their way back to the Light. The whole purpose of being in duality is to grow through experience, so why indeed should anyone’s choice be looked upon as different to anyone else’s?

“Your lives all carry responsibility and your actions are accountable for by you, but once cleared karmically there are no recriminations. Remember that experiences are set up with souls that have all agreed to play out their respective roles. Someone has to take the part of the dark Ones, and believe us Dear Ones – you have all acted on both sides.” (15)

Accountability comes after death in an event in which we judge ourselves, he tells us.

“Be assured that when you pass over and return to the astral planes, you will clearly understand all facets of your life. You will review your life, and this can be a sobering time when you find out how well you have done where your life plan was concerned. The vibrations of Earth dull your senses, and it is not until you rise up higher that you can fully grasp the purpose of life on Earth.” (16)

Our lives are structured, SaLuSa says, so that it’s easy for those with the ability to see whom we will meet but now how we will respond.

“Events can be foreseen way ahead, so it is easy enough to place you where it is of the most benefit. Life seems complicated but in reality it is quite simple, as you will always find yourself to be in the right place. It is much the same with the people that enter your life, as that is also by arrangement and agreement.” (17)

Among the details that our life plan determines is our span of life, SaLuSa says.

“Each of you have a specific life span which can be re-negotiated, but normally when your time of completion is reached you are ready to return to the higher dimensions. Bear this in mind when your loved ones or friends leave the Earth plane, and be happy for them. They have not gone from your lives forever, and soul groups will come together time and time again.” (18)

On rare occasions, we can amend our soul contract, Matthew explains:

“A petition to amend one’s soul contract is done at soul level, because only at that level can it be known if the person’s life circumstances are harsher than the experiencing chosen prior to birth. It is on the basis of excessive suffering that the petitions are granted.” (19)

Having heard these general discussions of soul contract, perhaps we can now understand what Melchizedek meant when he said: “You who read this are Ones who chose to be here in order to anchor the Light upon the Planet in preparation for these times.” (20)

Or SaLuSa:

“You chose to be here to experience it, and be part of the final chapter in the cycle of duality. Many, many souls sought such an opportunity, but your presence means that you were more suited to the occasion and brought with you a wealth of experience.” (21)

“You are here,” Ag-Agria tells us, “to play out a role you have agreed to follow.” (22)

As we near the end of this cycle, the increasing levels of light are burning away the veil of forgetfulness, the Spiritual Hierarchy through Lauren Gorgo tells us.

“All that no longer serves your higher path has been melted away by the sheer magnitude of your increasing light quotient so that you may fully access and implement your divine blueprints of service.” (23)

Starseeds here to serve as lightwarriors, lightworkers and lightholders are awakening in increasing numbers, she says.

“Those who held contracts to serve as the warriors, path-pavers and way-showers are approaching clear remembrance…the awareness and certainty of their connection to Source first through extraordinary clarity of thought, unwavering focus, increasing present-centered perception, and the ability to hold and maintain mental and emotional balance.” (24)

Many Starseeds will pass by the opportunity for early Ascension to remain at their post, or ascend and then return, Archangel Michael says, choosing to remain and serve out our roles.

“Opportunities will be forthcoming for ascension, and the ascension waves are forthcoming. But many will choose to stay and fulfill their missions and contracts. And know, dear children, that you are the ones to fulfill these roles.

“These roles are engraved or emblazoned in your DNA, the cells of your body and your memory banks. You have but only to will yourself to awaken and when you are in touch with your Higher Selves you will wake up and you will re-member, if that be your will to do so, in divine timing. …

“You are the trailblazers of the Golden New Earth, and you are the beacon of light that shines through the dark. You are the leaders and many will follow you. You will lead the way. All you brave ones and the ones that have come before – the pioneers, the way-showers – will mark the way for others that will follow you. They will follow in your footsteps and know that the path is golden.” (25)

His exhortation is rousing

“You are Christed beings. And we ask that you beam your light outwards and know that the path is emblazoned in glory, that the path is emblazoned with truth and light and wonder and joy and magic, co-creativity, unconditional love, enlightenment, courage and strength this day.

“It is time to harvest what you have sown, the investments that you have made, and the light and Christ Consciousness that you have anchored as a Unity Collective Consciousness. The Goddess is here – the Universal Goddess and its time to harvest – to harvest the souls to awaken and re-member.

“And the harvest will be borne of Cosmic Christ Consciousness and Unconditional Love which will be dispensed from one heart to the other, and the path will be paved with heart. We ask that you walk the walk and the path with heart, and do everything from your heart, from a heart filled with Golden Unconditional Love.” (26)

Anyone who remains asleep he cries out to wake up.

“And like Rip Van Winkle in the rhyme, it is time to awaken and arise from your slumber and realize that a revolution awaits you, not just an American Revolution, but a Global Revolution. Claim your divinity and claim the golden revolution, for it is nigh.” (27)

When Starseeds finish their mission, they may feel drawn to their home planets, SaLuSa tells us.

“Some of you will eventually return to your home planet which may even be beyond your solar system, or in some instances in another Universe. Do not worry about leaving your beloved Earth, as your true home will draw you like a magnet. Meantime you have some matters to settle here on Earth, and see out this cycle.” (28)

So this is the backdrop against which the call to service is being made. We Starseeds and Lightworkers have stipulated in our soul contracts or life agreements that we would come and serve as lightwarriors and lightworkers, wayshowers and pathpavers, to a generation whose fate was to ascend from duality into unity at the end of this cycle. Many of us have spent lifetimes preparing for the events due soon.

Most of us came from higher dimensions and distant planets. This celebration is not for us per se, but for the terrestrials that we serve. We have had our celebration lifetimes ago and have volunteered this lifetime to attend to the welfare of others. Once we’ve done our duty, we can return to our spatial and dimensional homes for a rest, until the next time the call comes that we’re needed.
