Destiny, Fate and Soul Contracts

destiny soul contracts

Before you entered this physical time and space your soul made an agreement. Before you came into human form, your soul had specific purpose or destiny that it had agreed to fulfil. This destiny was written and is your Soul Contract.

We all have Soul Contracts and essentially it is the list of lessons that we are meant to acquire in this life time in order to advance our soul to a higher level of consciousness.

I have seen this Soul Contract many times through meditation and when doing intuitive readings and here is what I know about it-

  • Your time, date and place of birth are no accident
  • The family you were born into was specifically chosen for you
  • Certain people are destined to come into your life to help you heal something either from a past life or in this lifetime
  • Whatever events unfold in your life are here in order to help you evolve to a higher state of consciousness
  • Death is also included on your soul contract, but not as a date- rather it is at a moment in your life- a moment when you realize whatever it is that you need to realize in order to move back into spirit form

You were sent to this dimension of Earth at a specific time, to a specific place and with a specific purpose. One thing that is not predetermined however, is your free will and choice.

Life is full of choices. We all have free will, we are all in charge (to a certain extent) and we all have a say in how we want our life to unfold once we get here.

These choices are seen as our fate- we can choose which path to go down, we can choose which road to avoid and which road to pursue, but one thing that we cannot change is our destiny.

Our destiny is essentially to experience the Unconditional Love of the Universe and often this takes many journeys, across many lifetimes and dimensions, in order to fully return to this energy.

All souls on Earth are here at different stages of their conscious evolution, some are towards the end and some have just begun, but either way we are all ‘contracted’ to be here.

Essentially, your Soul Contract is the deal you made with yourself in order to help you grow and evolve to a higher state of awareness but, you are not alone. You are also given some help along the way by your guides and angels.

In order to fulfil your Soul Contract you are also assigned a set of spirit guides, angels and people to help you. If you are open enough, you will constantly receive signs, messages and clues as to whether you are following your highest or destined path.

One of the best physical clues that you are following your Soul Contract or highest path is when synchronicity occurs or strange coincidences happen that lead you from one thing to the next.

Another good sign that you are following your highest path is when you seem to meet the right people at the right time who can offer you information, guidance and assistance when you are in doubt or wanting to learn.

There is some debate over whether or not you can break your Soul Contract. Some argue that everything you do is part of your contract, and others believe that you can wander off your chosen path. But was breaking your contract part of the deal?

I don’t think its possible to really ever break your contract, but there can be moments when your choices don’t always flow with your destiny. When this occurs you may experience confusion, negativity or even physical ailments, but remember all of this is sometimes necessary to help you naturally align with and move back into the flow.

Think of your Soul Contract as the mountain you were placed on- the mountain you were destined to climb. You can choose how to get to the top, you can choose which way you want to climb; each of these choices bringing about a completely different experience, but the destination will always be the same. Your mountain will continue to grow, shift and evolve as you do, but your purpose here in human form will always remain.

It is not a race to see how fast you can get to the top, it’s not a necessary challenge to try to climb someone else’s mountain, the challenge is in being true to yourself, and climbing your mountain with ease and grace; excited by where the journey will take you.

  • Very enlightening post! I wonder now if I am truly on the right path. It feels like it, but I suppose I’ll know more in time.

    Do you have a kindle version of your book, if not where can I get a hard copy?

    • Unfortunately we don’t have a hard copy version. The file is downloaded as a PDF which you can read on most tablets and your desktop. Please let me know if you have any further questions-

    Synchronicities are very interesting i like to call them tip-taps.

    If we all have a purpose, then what about terrorists? Aren’t they convinced themselves that the cause they are defending is right? How can the “universe” let that happen?

      It could sound weird…but someone said that even Hitler it’s not a “bad guy” and it have his own place in “paradise”……because he was sent here on Earth to create experiences (good or bad) for other people…(jews for example)…..and if I think they tried to kill Hitler about 40 times or something and they always failed…like some divinity was proteting him…

      People have free will too. They can do things that they weren’t supposed to do. I think the majority of the world has no sense of ‘the truth’. They are for example conditioned to believe killing people with other religions is good.

      Humans are very moldable. You can basically teach young kids to kill and turn them into killing machines. Is this the kids purpose in life? Probably not, but when conditioned into a certain way of life, it can be difficult to change.

        I agree it’s brain washing you have to be constantly on look out for that.

    I believe this to be true… when you go off path you have ailments etc… I believe I went off track and became I’ll with Fibromyalgia. I still believe that contract is in place but with that person it will have to be fulfilled in next life… his human Form is no longer here.

    Reading this article made me feel very sad. It seems I’ve chosen to defy my soul’s contract every step of the way, since “confusion, negativity, and physical ailments” have accompanied me in the last twenty years. I’ve been closed off from spirit guides for a while now. I started getting some signs only recently. Yet, it’s been a painful process with no end in sight. Though, I definitely agree that all that my soul craves is to experience “Unconditional Love.” I guess making the wrong choices that cause us long-term physical and emotional suffering may also be part of one’s soul contract, if a person is here to heal something from the past. However, knowing that doesn’t offer much consolation.

      This article only scratches the surface. Sometimes a contract is precisely TO experience “confusion, anxiety, ailments”. The Universe is mysterious and often we take challenging lives to deepen our sense of compassion or many other things such as learning humility. Abuse is often part of many contracts as it does not occur in the higher realms. You may be doing exactly what you agreed for, that the difficulties you are having are part of the lessons and experiences you wanted. Perhaps things came easily to you in other lives. Now you might want things not to flow, to gain that perspective. Its a bigger picture than we think. Don’t give up. You might read “Journey of Souls’ by Michael Newton.

      • Anahit Petrosyan

        Thank you for the additional resources on this and for your encouragement, Ken! Makes sense. Your comments have arrived just in time for me to seriously explore Michael Newton’s enlightening exposition of the “Journey of Souls,” at this time in my life. All the best to you, too!

          You are welcome.

        True. And for the real mind blowing experience, let’s introduce a possibility that this, our reality here is just where some small part of our true soul exists, while there are also other “us” living all over the Universe (and other Universes), doing other things, in different shapes and forms. Many species are well aware of their eternal soul, some animals on Earth are as well. This should be the time when our Consciousness will shift, (vibrations are already changing – Earth frequencies are getting higher). Every source I ever researched mentioned that Earth is one of the toughest challenges (because of it’s high density, and also it’s karma that develops trapping us here for some time). I read all M. Newton books as well as Dolores Canon ones. Very similar on a global scale, which is promising.

      I think some people aren’t open to finding that person really they expect to meet somebody and it be easy or make rules sometimes you meet right person not right time and have to be patient and get on with your life til it’s time to meet again. You know when it’s right person and they can too. You both have to be in right place in your head and heart. It’so you both evolve and grow I think. And many people settle cos it gets too hard.

    I loved your article.I just lost my father after I dedicated a whole year of my life on saving him.I am not at a good spot right now and I am trying to find some answers.Do you offer mediumship readings? There are just a lot of weird things that took place even before dad’s passing that I need to get answers for.I think it may be all part of his soul contract. He was a very spiritual person and had visions quite often, I am wondering if he knew he would die, why he did not made different choices to postpone that till he is much older.He was only 60.

    • hi daniela, i am so sorry for your loss, my heart goes out to you. i do not offer mediumship readings, but there is this great blog written by a medium that i often read, maybe it can help you too- light and love to you xox

        Thank you for your response ,Tanaaz.It is funny but actually I came across Amanda’s website a couple of weeks ago and I already bought and read 4 of her books. However, based on your article I am still wondering if a person can change his destiny by making a different choice or if it was meant for him to die based on his soul contract, he will die regardless of the choices made. I will appreciate if you can share your thoughts.
        Thank you!
