Determined to understand these perplexing questions around soul contracts and predestination, I found myself pouring through Kryon, Book 3 again. Co-incidentally, one of my readers directed me to a recent link on the Kryon website, which – yep, you’ve got it – just happened to discuss soul contracts. To my credit, I am not the only person on the planet mulling over these issues of how soul contracts affect us, and for that, I am extremely grateful. For example, I couldn’t quite understand this: if my spiritual path is growing in awareness (or consciousness), which then raises my vibration, how can I say YES to a soul contract that is hidden from me? And by “me”, I refer to my conscious awareness. Surely, you see the dilemma.
Now I’m not saying I don’t trust my soul to get it right. Not at all. But you see the issue here.
Do I have soul contracts? If so, what purpose do they serve? Is there more than one?
What if there is no predestination? No “meant to be”. Only choice?
I must admit I bought into the popular wisdom in New Age circles that “things happened for a reason”. I believed this meant our future was predestined. But Kryon, who is a prolific and highly regarded channel says: There is no such thing as predestination, but there is forward planning from the soul. (Okay, forward planning is my phrase but I have to add something here.)
Lee Carroll, who channels Kryon, explains this concept of forward planning: As a boy, Lee really wanted to be a navy officer. It felt natural to him. Yet he had allergies, which meant he wouldn’t be accepted into the navy, and on top of this he suffered from sea sickness. A sailor who couldn’t stomach the sea. Didn’t quite add up. Yet, being in the navy was all he wanted to do.
He explains this story as the difference between past life residue and a mission as yet unfulfilled. His mission was channeling Kryon. And he came to that mission later in life. Did he know as a boy he would become a well-known author for recording writing from an invisible being? No, he did not. He wanted to be a sailor. You can’t get more practical than that, can you?
The interesting aspect for me is that Lee believes his own soul set up this scenario for him. He came into this lifetime with physical conditions that prevented him from fulfilling his heart’s desire. The desire to be a sailor was based on a memory or residue from the past, not the purpose in his current life. Tricky right? No wonder this business of soul contracts takes awhile to figure out.
My path was blocked when I wanted to work in the advertising industry. It was at a time in my life when I was a real go-getter. I knew how to use my will and I met someone who introduced me to one of the top ad agencies in Canada – Y & R. I had an interview with the President and the doors were still closed. Not one to give up, I later met a vice-president of another large ad agency. Life still said NO. I couldn’t understand this. When I later discovered that psychics gave you helpful information you couldn’t get elsewhere, I asked this question. Why can’t I get a job in advertising? Oh, they gave me an answer alright. They said:
It is not your path.
You would be using your creative talents for mass consumerism, or words to that effect, and my soul, said: NO WAY. So I didn’t try that locked door again! The doors of opportunity may be blocked due to timing. And sometimes, in my case, they are blocked because they are doors that are just not open for us.
I have struggled with this concept. In a free-will universe, shouldn’t all the doors be opened to us? Isn’t this what the New Age promises us? Whatever we like, whatever we want, when we raise our vibration to that perfect point of clarity, SHAZAM, like magic, all that we desire, all that we require, will now be available to us? Or not.
If not, why not? Could this go back to the subject of soul contracts. Yes, I believe it does. If our purpose on Planet Earth is to grow in a certain way, let’s just use the metaphor of a chrysanthemum. If this is our coding, our purpose is to be a chrysanthemum.
Kryon says: ELIMINATE ALL THOUGHTS OF WHAT SPIRIT EXPECTS OF YOU AND REPLACE THEM WITH THOUGHTS OF WHAT YOU ARE TO DO WITH YOU
Our contract says: this is why I’m here.
Now this is a great thought, don’t you agree? A healing modality called Access Consciousness asks the question: what if we are in it for the fun? What then?
So from this perspective, the “sweet spot of our contract”, another term used by Kryon, suggests that when we give ourselves permission to really be ourselves, we are then authentically living our contract.
Now I am beginning to get it.
What if my contract is all about writing, and by writing helping raise consciousness, which really means people connecting to their own Divine Essence? Does that feel good to me? Yes, it does. Does it give me joy? You bet.
But look at how I tried to jump off-track by attempting to work in advertising. From my perspective at the time, I was using my gift of writing. What could be wrong with that? What was wrong with Lee Carroll’s desire to be a sailor? Nothing, nothing wrong with it all, except that his soul had something else planned for him.
Welcome to Planet Earth.
