Elements of the Soul Purpose

One of the aims of life is to learn lessons or challenges. Unless you are a young or new soul the chances are your incarnations will have fewer and less harsh challenges in order for you to learn. I call them challenges, as realistically when we face them, they are that indeed. It would be inhuman to go into a situation such as watching a loved one being murdered and consider it a lesson, but a challenge on how to cope with the situation and deal with loss and remain strong. We have opted to learn particular lessons, to work on them, however these can seem like a utopic notion we perceived before incarnation versus reality that become juxtaposed. On the physical plane (here) we are subject to external players that affect and influence events, emotions and can hinder these lessons and they become more of a challenge.

So what happens? Do we fail? Suffer pain in a difficult incarnation to fulfill the purpose of the lesson? Hopefully we would have planned for member of our soul group to support and  assist us. Also our guides should recognize this and step in. Otherwise, we have free will to stop, take stock and reevaluate and change our thought patterns towards the situation. The question is, will this lesson if unfulfilled for whatever reason remain in our soul contract for the next incarnation or that of our descendants. Theories dictate that it is the case, unless the contract is amended or re-written.

The understanding of the process is paramount to know why and how–a karmic overdraft is predestined for potential descendants before they have even decided on an incarnation. By understanding what we need to do and our limits and boundaries, we can make our incarnations less burdensome and healthier.  The realization means we can achieve more in a credible manner, know what is not feasible and find alternative ways to release the lesson or to tackle it. Sometimes we may have thought we have learned a lesson, but it was not the actual lesson we had aimed for or a deeper level is required.

Altruistic incarnations differ, as their purpose is to assist in providing the lesson, in many cases becoming a victim. Like anything, bad experiences deter us from repeating the same, delaying incarnations or choosing not to return. Many in recent times have decided this is to be their final incarnation because of how humanity has evolved.

I ask why if I am an evolved Old Soul did I opt to reincarnate and put myself through the pain of humanity? Perhaps to perfect some elements, to see things through different eyes, to be more rational? Old Souls were asked to reincarnate to assist and guide younger souls, a brave or foolhardy choice? Similar to an altruistic incarnation in some ways, both addressing lessons and providing the lesson too. An unenviable task.

Choosing our soul group

There are many theories about how we choose our parents, siblings and our soul group; that it is predetermined before incarnation. However, if we look at the bigger picture, our parents and grandparents would have been involved and made soul contracts before their incarnation so if any party chooses to divert, how does that change the plan?

Consider this theory, you wanted a sibling close in age to help you learn a specific lesson, but your parents cannot have another child or one gets divorced, how does that change things? I would venture a theory that you have a choice of who will be your parents, to be born nearby to become a neighbor or best friend or even adopted. Somehow the soul group will come together, but plans can be adjusted.

Members of the soul group don’t stay indefinitely as much as we would like them to, that’s why we miss them and yearn for them. We must understand they have their own path and goals to follow and they have other soul contracts to fulfill. That’s why I consider soul bonds stronger than blood ties; they are eternal even if blood ties in the physical world are deemed to be stronger.

Many wonder why they chose their parents, some for karmic reasons and role reversal and some because geographically and era wise it enabled the soul group to connect. That’s why some children feel disconnected from their families; it could be an incarnation of convenience or to be born in the same bloodline of a relative who is a member of the soul group.

I wonder sometimes if my incarnation was responsible for my parents arranged marriage, both are so disconnected from me, and my brother too. However, there are reasons my brother is around and we were bonded and I feel I have now repaid what I needed to. He is part of my soul group, but I feel for the last time, as I no longer have that bond or desire to protect him as I once did. Soul groups do usually last, but some will serve their purpose as the group becomes smaller once you have achieved what you needed.

This is why Old Souls have smaller soul groups or ones where members do not need to appear in every incarnation. That’s why they are seen as loners or hermits, because they don’t need their soul group, or only a select few. We recognize our soul group when we necessary; those bonds will endure, but will fade as we discover our goals and purposes.
