How Can a Human Walk Away From a Soul Contract?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eden, who asks for an explanation of soul contracts and how free will allows a human being to walk away from a soul contract that was decided on before being born? Wouldn’t this be going against the wisdom of their soul?

The Council says when a soul contract is made two souls will come together with an important purpose and it’s usually something they’ve done together in one or more lifetimes. No matter what’s going on in their lives, people who’ve agreed to a soul contract will find each other and work together to accomplish this purpose.

Most soul contracts are laid out as follows: you want to learn this thing, I want to learn that thing, and we’ll come together at a certain time in our lives and help each other through whatever is going on in our life. There’s always the agreement if things are happening in a way these souls didn’t expect because of their beliefs or because of what they’ve created in their lives, it’s always agreed you can walk away from a soul contract. You have that free will. No one is ever forced to stay in a soul contract. You have the ability to walk away. And there’s always the agreement that if we can’t accomplish our soul contract in this lifetime, we can do it in another lifetime.

The soul contract can change if you created in your life something different from what you originally intended to create. There’s nothing horrible about breaking a soul contract. It’s always made with the idea of helping each other and both of you learning lessons. Most of the time these soul contracts are fulfilled, but there’s always the free will to walk away.

A soul contract isn’t written in stone. You don’t agree that if you break this contract you’ll suffer forever. The rest of your life won’t be horrible. It’s more like if you can’t get to where you want in love and understanding, you realize there aren’t any endings and this soul contract can be accomplished in another life.

The Council closes by saying they aren’t particularly fond of the word “contract.” They like to think it’s more of an agreement to help each other out. The word contract is so stern. It’s like the devil will come and sue you if you break this contract. It’s an agreement and most people work out that agreement one way or another.

  1. Hi, Ashtin. We’ll ask The Council your question about suicide and new souls when we have time and we’ll post an audio recording of their reply as soon as it’s ready. Excellent question. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  2. If someone tried to walk out (suicide) and lived, doctors admitting that miracle. is there a new soul hosting that body? The reason for that question being that they are very different and doesn’t show any emotion toward the past, or good and bad memories. Doesn’t seem at all the same soul.

  3. I believe if one person breaks the soul contract, and the other still learns the lesson on their own, than the soul contract is severed for good. The one that walked away will have to rewrite that contract with someone else, and try to complete it, as it is their lesson to be learned. The one who completed it, can go on to vibrate at a higher soul level and move towards oneness with God.

  4. It was our pleasure, Eden. We learned a lot from this session also. We’re glad for the comfort you received, even if it wasn’t what you were expecting. Congratulations on being able to see beyond your expectations. We realize this can be challenging. Best wishes on your journey. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  5. Hi Bob and Cynthia! Thank you so much for answering my question, I feel very honoured and I really appreciate you taking the time to do that. The answer The Council gave was not at all what I was expecting but has given me comfort and lots to ponder. Thanks again xoxo
