"You Asked For It, You Got It": Life Contracts - Basic
"The fault lies not in our stars but in ourselves."
(William Shakespeare "Julius Caesar")
Basis of Life Contracts
The two principles of existence are that "Soul exists because God loves it"
and "what you do unto others (in the past) will be done unto you" (in the
future). All here happens by
agreement. For a
truly loving God does not really allow such things a "victims" or "perpetrators".
These only seem to exist when what one sowed (perpetrator in the past) is
reaped (victim in the future).
Karma & Life Contract
This system of action and reaction, cause
and effect, known as karma, ensures that perfect justice is the law of the
universe. The administration of karma is "governed" by one's "Life Contract".
This "Life Contract" ensures you do what it is you came here to do. It is
unbreakable as long as the reasons for its existence
(if unaltered by present experience,
Every Life Contract falls into three parts:
1) Must Dos, 2) Nice to Have, and 3) Extra Credit.
Most individuals spend their entire lives in trying
to complete this first section of their Life Contract. The "Must Dos" are
what the individual has signed to do in their life. This includes such
things as: the people they have to meet and interact with, the careers/jobs
that they must take, and the life experiences they have chosen to undertake
(accidents, illnesses, poverty, failed relationships, etc) to work off of
their past life karma.
Nice to Have:
Only after the individual has substantially completed
their "Must Dos" can they work on their "Nice to Have" part of their Life
Contract. What would be "Nice to Have" includes such things as: completing
special projects like working for causes, creating artistic works, or
dramatically expanding one's comfort zone. It can also include: completing
special intentions relative to specific individuals and/or groups.
Only after the individual has substantially completed
their "Nice to Haves" can they work on their "Extra Credit" projects. These
are things that were not scheduled for this life but have been brought forward
to be worked upon now. Very few people ever get to this "Extra Credit" stage
but it is possible. This only happens when the individual has consciously
and consistently striven to work down their past life karma.
Every Life Contract is always effected by:
1) Past Life Load and 2) Soul Levels.
"It is nature's kindness that we do not remember past
births. Life would be a burden if we carried such a tremendous load of
memories." (Mohandas K. Gandhi)
Our "past life load" is the number of past lives
(full of karma) are one chooses to work on in any given lifetime.
Most individuals are deeply effected by three
significant past lives. More often than not, a person's birth family is
a gathering of souls from one shared past life where deep karma must be
balanced. Almost always, a person's marital family is a gathering of
souls from another shared past life with deep karma. Finally, an
individual's health and wealth are from a third past life and often
represents the deepest karma to be worked through in their lifetime.
When an individual has worked through enough karma
on their primary three past lives, other lives will emerge to be healed.
People most often notice this when their smoothly flowing lives all of a
sudden hit big and unexpected turbulence. Perhaps a loved one contracts
a deadly disease. Or maybe financial disaster strikes and all in the
family have their lives torn apart. Even worse is if a family member is
lost to violent crime or a devastating, crippling accident.
Few individuals chose to reincarnate with a plan to
work on ten or more past lives at once. Those who reincarnate agreeing to
work on 10+ past lives find themselves living a very tough life. They
usually have health, wealth, and relationship challenges. They often wonder
why others have a much easier life than they do. Yet they also have the
internal resources to meet and master their life challenges… and to also
work off deep, troublesome past life karma.
Very few choose to work on more than 50+ past lives in
one lifetime. Those who reincarnate agreeing to work on 50+ past lives find
themselves living a super tough life. They always have one or more tough
health challenges to live with. They always live on the razor's edge of
abundance (having enough but struggling hard for wealth). Their relationships
are always complicated and turbulent at times.
Past Life Load:
Whatever the number of past lives you are working
on, know that you chose to do this work in the inner worlds before you are
born. Know also you are only given what you can handle and what is best for
you to help you move forward in love, joy, and awareness. Karma is about
teaching not punishing.
"I am, indeed, a king, because I know how to rule myself."
Our Soul level is what we have earned from our past lives and what we
carry to our current incarnation. Thus the proper measurement of the
level of Soul awareness is what an individual has learned during their
cycles of reincarnation.
This concept in reincarnation means that what
matters is not how young one is on the outside but how old one is on the
inside. Those who are "born 40 years old" have deep "Bench Strength"
(and so are "Advanced" Souls). Those who still want to act like teenagers
when they are 50, 60, or 70 years old do not possess much "Bench Strength"
(and so are "Beginner Souls"). Those who are "inbetween" these levels of
maturity would be "Intermediate Souls".
These individuals are learning the "basics" by
working out of their Root, Sacral, and Stomach Chakras. Beginners working
are learning courage as in how to manifest their
"individual" desires (as these relate to sex, money, and power) into the
outer physical world. Beginners working on the
are learning creativity as
in how to manifest their "group" desires (as these relate to work) in
co-creation with others. Beginners working on the
are developing their character: who they are
in relation to what others and society wants or expects. Beginners
are caught up in the now and have no energy for past life exploration
(and are deep into
These individuals are learning "mastery" by
working out of their Heart and Throat Chakras. Intermediates working on the
are learning caring as in how to demonstrate
compassion, tolerance, and forgiveness to others. Intermediates working
are learning candor as in how to communicate with
truth, kindness, and empowerment. Intermediates may or may not have
energy for past life exploration (and may or may not be skeptical).
These individuals are expressing "mastery" by
working out of their Brow and Crown Chakras. Advanceds (Old Souls) working
Brow Chakra are
learning deep clarity as in how to communicate with
accuracy, objectivity, and thoroughness. Advanceds working on the
are learning to exercise their free will lovingly
by developing discipline, detachment, and, above all, discernment. Advanced
Souls do this through past life exploration.
If you are wondering if you are an Advanced (Old)
Soul, here is how you can find out... for sure.
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women
merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; and one man
in his time plays many parts." (William Shakespeare "As You Like It")
If you feel like you were born "40 years old", then you are very likely
an "old" Soul. Here are the signs:
Well Defined Personality:
From an early age, the "old" Soul will
have a very well defined personality. Their preferences and predispositions
emerge often before the infant can talk. Their personality does not seem to
develop: rather it seems complete "right out of the box" to parents and other
As the "old" Soul grows, they will be much more
mature at each age than their peers. Their early maturity will often convince
others that the "old" Soul is much older than their biological age. They will
frequently be mistaken for being older by those who are meeting them for the
Preference for Older People:
The "old" Soul will seek out the company of people
much older than themselves. They will feel more comfortable around older
people. They will often avoid the company of their peers, preferring to be
around those who are older and "more like" who they truly
are on the inside.
Avoidance of Peers:
The "old" Soul will avoid the company of peers.
They view peers as being "children" with whom they have little or nothing in
common, even though they are the same age. They will have "more mature
interests" than their peers, preferring activities that are attractive to
much older people.
Feeling Old While Young:
"Old Souls" will tell you that they "have
always felt very old" on the inside. They will say things like they "usually
feel out of place with peers", that they "belong to another time in the past",
and that they "think or feel differently" than most others around them. They
will have some "world weariness" feeling like they "have been there and done
that" all before. Given their many past lives, they are most likely right
(so please give them the benefit of the doubt)!
Here are other signs of an Advanced (Old) Soul
that are uncommon and even rare.
"It is a strong proof of men knowing most things
before birth, that when mere children they grasp innumerable facts with
such speed as to show that they are not then taking them in for the first
time, but are remembering and recalling them." (Marcus Tullius Cicero)
How do you know if someone has had lots of past
life experience? It is "Bench Strength!"
This concept in reincarnation means that what
matters is not how young one is on the outside but how old one is on
the inside. Those who are "born 40 years old" have deep "Bench Strength"
Those who still want to act like teenagers when they are 50, 60, or 70
years old do not possess much "Bench Strength" as
Beginner or Intermediate Souls.
Dissimilar Identical Twins:
Identical twins who were born within
minutes of one another, who were the same in appearance both physically
and genetically, and who were raised in the same environment, should end
up the same, right? Wrong, because the one thing that cannot be identical
between twins is their past life bench strength. In my extended family,
one twin became a drug addict while the other founded a multi-million
dollar company. The addict was young as Soul while the businessman was a
very old Soul and that "Bench Strength" made the difference.
There is a bumper crop of child prodigies that
the modern media has faithfully reported. Movie lovers will remember actors:
Abigail Breslin, Macaulay Culkin, Dakota Fanning, and Haley Joel Osment.
Music lovers will remember musicians: Joshua Goldberg and Matthew Savage.
Child prodigies can be found in all walks of life - such as artists,
musicians, attorneys, business leaders, builders, physicians - and all
these are created by "Bench Strength".
Resistant to Adversity:
"Bench Strength" makes the most difference
under conditions of adversity. Most children who were raised in orphan
mills, like those in Africa, China, Romania, and Russia, end up with rage and
attachment disorders if they have resided there for more than two years.
Yet many children, who were inmates in such orphanages for longer than
that, emerged without any of these problems. Why? The answer, of course,
is past life "Bench Strength".
It's All Inside:
Most people are not aware that there is more
inside them than they may have experienced so far. So, if you want to
tap into your personal "Bench Strength", all you need to do is
"Unleash Your Past Life Talents".
