We know the people we know because we made sacred contracts with them before we came to the earth plane. Heck, I’ll even go so far as to say that we chose our parents. Some of us are like, wow – I did that?
In fact, I swear that my daughter was my mother in a previous life. Shh, don’t tell her.
I believe and have believed for quite some time that we are in soul groups before coming to this plane of existence. There could be tens and thousands in just one group. We create scenarios to assist us to spiritually grow and evolve.
What really bothers me at times is when other people make judgments on why or what you are doing, especially regarding relationships, not just those who are life partners, but those around children and friends as well.
Backstory: I had someone recently tell me that if I did something, I wasn’t allowing others to step up to do it, that what I was doing would stop others from having their own growth.
Insanity is what I thought. I do not have that much power, nor does anyone else on this earth plane. People stop themselves from doing; It has nothing to do with me or another person. It’s about them.
Yes, I get it – perhaps that person was put into my life to see how I would handle the situation. I talked it out with a couple of friends and decided that I would do it anyway, at my own pace.
Incidentally, sacred contracts can be broken. Does this mean you repeat? No, it means you decided not to play out the scenario with that person. You could learn that life lesson with someone else’s help. Or maybe it wasn’t your life lesson, but another’s. Or maybe you do repeat.
Take notice of the people around you, really look. Think about what their purpose is in your life. Undoubtedly, they are around you to assist in your growth. And it could be someone you just meet for one minute. That encounter could set you on a new path.
Remember, free will is always at play.
