Nicolas David Ngan: We are an experiment in consciousness. Human life is created by a blueprint within us called the Soul Contract. This spiritual map of life creates each moment of our experience on Earth which is optimal for our soul’s growth. It describes the reason we are alive, and the answer to the biggest question which is “What is the meaning of my life?” Connecting and aligning with this meaning is the key to manifesting a higher state of consciousness and a more blissful life.

What an interesting time we are having!
There have been lots of “fearful” events predicted the past few months, which have not come to pass. And more fearful events predicted for the rest of the year too, which won’t come to pass either. The reason is that the human collective is raising its vibration, one person at a time.
Yup, it’s you, and everyone you teach how to raise their personal vibration, who are creating the shift we want to see in the world. The higher our vibration, the more aware we become, the more able we are in creating the present life we want for ourselves and the planet. I’ve been searching for ways we can accelerate our life expansion as well as any limitations we may have that are holding us back.
One of the things I have been looking at, which limit us tremendously, are contracts. For this reason, I invite you to read the following article:
Have you made any contracts lately? In this lifetime? In previous lifetimes?
By “contract” I mean any piece of paper, notebook page, or electronic note where you have written what you want out of life. Where you make an agreement on what you want to manifest.
It could also come in the form of many manifestation exercises, such as collages, photo collections or drawings.
When we make contracts, they might feel very expansive. After all, we make them to improve our lives. Indeed they do work, most of what is in those contracts comes to pass.
Some contracts are contracts we have made with others, such as marriages, mortgages, work contracts, rent contracts, lease contracts, loans, and more.
However, if we take a step back, and look for limiting language, situations, and beliefs within these contracts, and process them, we can really expand our lives.
Even if they are contracts that are with third parties and we feel they are “not fair”, or no longer suitable, or we were forced to take the best we could, or we are unhappy with them now, we can really shift things in real life simply by sitting with these third party contracts and allowing all our negative emotions to exist, expand, and be infused with light and love, thus liberating them back into Oneness.
If you haven’t already, do take a look at how to cleanse negative energies in this YouTube video:
Now, the contracts we have made ourselves, we can go back and either wipe clean, or review and rewrite, and sign again.
This is a list with possible limitations:
1) A love relationship manifestation contract that has a named partner, whether a spouse, boy/girlfriend or the person of our dreams. This is a biggie. Energetically speaking this is one of the worst contracts we can write. Even if we really, really want our relationship with one particular person to manifest, or improve, by naming them, we limit the Universe from helping us manifest our greatest possible outcome. So, if you have one of these, erase the person’s name, remove the photo, throw away their personal possession (in case of using magick), and replace their name, or object, with a description of the ideal partner. Even if you describe them, make sure that you do not emotionally “wish” it was them, but simply concentrate on the happy and satisfied feeling you get when imagining yourself with that perfect person.
2) Any contract that specifies things you will do in order to get something else. Especially if those things are difficult to do, or involve other individuals to help you accomplish it. For example, an environmental contract that specifies you will, renew, decorate, declutter or make your home beautiful in order for it to be supportive of your life, but you live with one or more other people who do not cooperate or refuse to make the place the way you want it. Or you don’t have the income to renew or decorate it. Change it to making a contract with yourself to live in a 100 per cent supportive and nurturing, beautiful, safe, home.
3) A contract that specifies how you will receive wealth and abundance in your life. For example, you want to become rich, or successful in your chosen career. A popular artist, professional, well known, etc., and that is the only way you will become wealthy and abundant. Make sure that the two are not tied in together. So, in this case, you can make two contracts, one specifying that you will have multiple extremely effective income sources. And the other that you will be extremely happy, satisfied, and successful with your chosen profession.
These are just examples, but they delineate some examples of how we can limit ourselves.
Take a look at your contracts, manifestation exercises and art and documents, to make sure you clear up any limiting energies and vocabulary from them, then watch your life expand.

In the last few years, a new esoteric paradigm has emerged on the internet, and on several spiritual blogs, that represent a diametrically different view of previously accepted spiritual systems and beliefs. This sea change may have started from the insights of a few select bloggers, but these new ideas quickly spread across the internet like a wildfire.
These ideas resonated with many awakened people, particularly when all the hope and hype of the Mayan calendar date (December 21, 2012) passed without incident and turned into spiritual disillusionment. A case might be made supporting the link between the Mayan calendar disillusionment and these spiritual concepts that emerged shortly afterwards which attempted to explain why conditions on Earth are still perceived to be predominantly negative.
There has been a big split right down the middle of the spiritually awakened community, to the extent that the term “New Age spirituality” and previously accepted ideologies are now perceived as just another constructed religion from the dark forces to manipulate the masses, whether partially or wholly true.
Here is an imperfect description of this division: On one side of the split we have the awakened who believe that we are now living on an emerging 4th Density Earth, who still believe in clearing karma and learning soul lessons. On the other side we have the awakened who believe we’re still being held hostage by dark (and false light) forces and now believe that reincarnation and soul contracts are the tools of our enslavement. Naturally, there is some gray area in the middle.
What If I were to say that both beliefs are perfectly valid and true?
Personally, I fall into this gray area. I hold no personal judgement for either side, because I see and relate to both sides simultaneously, as strange as that may seem. I can hold two contradictory views and see the truth in both sides. This may be an aspect of my attempt to move beyond dualities. I also feel that only when we begin to view the Universe in a holistic way, as one enormous integrated Being, do we begin to come closest to the Truth of these things.
This split seemed to accelerate after the Mayan date, December 21, 2012, when a lot of folks who were rather superficially invested in spiritual awakening became disillusioned. Others who were invested in a paradigm of miraculous transformation or divine intervention felt quite understandably betrayed. Some writers ceased channeling. Others changed their direction, 180 degrees.
What then emerged from the other side of this so-called 2012 portal was an understanding of what has been termed the “False Light.” That is to say, many of the Light Forces and channeled entities who were previously worshiped for giving us the undisputed Truth have now been called into question and relabeled deceivers, or “False Light.”
I do believe there is some legitimate truth to this new understanding, however I would also warn against throwing out “the baby with the bath water” as the expression goes. Don’t mistakenly or accidentally throw out the Real Light with what is perceived as the False Light. “Some Discernment Is Required,” should be a label that you attach to every one of your beliefs, especially the ones that you find are particularly emotional.
A recent post by Anna Merkaba describes the prison of a Dark Artificial Matrix built within the construct of the Cosmic Matrix. Much like a Russian Nesting Doll, our world is made up of a series of inter-nested realities.
There is a matrix that the earth is on, which really is a system of encodings. What has happened is that another matrix was created within a matrix by the “dark side”, human ego, reptilians, archons, etc, etc, all those who wanted to take advantage of the amnesia that humans are under in order to harness the energy from this planet. Source
The original film “The Matrix” was instrumental in representing this holographic reality, as both a positive and a negative concept. The Dark Matrix is one that is artificially created by parasites to enslave souls and farm their energy. The Neutral or Cosmic Matrix is the foundation of the manifested physical Universe, it is the playground by which spirit can enter the material realms and exist as individualized, self-actualized entities. It’s creation and intent is neither evil nor good. It simply is. It’s one giant Holodeck for consciousness and spirit. Some refer to it as a classroom. All of it exists within the mind of God/Source.
The Dark Artificial Matrix was built within it and upon the same basic principles of the Cosmic Matrix, taking it hostage, twisting it to a dark agenda, basically creating a very dark basement inside of a bright and beautiful house. Our world is basically trapped in the basement of God’s house.
I resonate with this model, as it reflects a concept of the Universe that I’ve come to understand very well. I’ve described this particular cosmology in great detail in my metaphysical series, “Season of the Serpent.” In it, the warring realms of Duality, the angelic order of Yang’Ash and the demonic chaos of Yin’Dru, are part of the Dark Matrix that exists to control Earth and the Astral Plane. However, there is a greater reality of Light beyond this dark artificial illusion. There are subtle levels of the Cosmic Matrix that allow greater freedom and consciousness, yet still allow individualization. Without this larger Cosmic Matrix, there would be no creation and no expression of physical life… period.
However, I tend to think some people are over-generalizing, confusing, and misunderstanding the differences between these two very distinct systems. They are lumping them together into one mish-mash of misunderstanding.
The ultimate difference is that behind the Dark Matrix there is a parasitic force pretending to be God; behind the Cosmic Matrix there is only you forgetting that you are an aspect of God. Both systems use similar rules of engagement, these rules are just used for very different purposes. One pulls you down and puts you to sleep. The other helps to wake and raise you up to your true self.
By focusing upon the negative matrix, we’re focusing upon resistance and ignoring potential assistance.
It should also be noted that there is a huge difference between (1) saying you’re awake – knowing you’re an aspect of God, and (2) feeling it within every molecule of your entire Being – stretching beyond time and space. The first awakening can happen overnight. The second could take many different lifetimes to complete. It is the temporal human ego that does not comprehend this – the human ego, much like a child, much like the Illuminati, wants to be God now in this flawed, limited mortal body and mind, within this Dark Matrix. But it never will, because the world “as it is” (fallen, 3rd Density) was never designed for that expression. The frequency of our world and our DNA will need to change first.
Let’s examine some of these spiritual concepts and beliefs that have been turned upside down recently. They fall into the category of what I would call “Pre-Birth Terms and Conditions.”
I’m not going to break down each one of these topics; there are plenty of articles that explain these subjects in greater detail. Rather, I’m going to paint a general overview of the topic.
The common variable these four conditions have in common is the spiritual amnesia we are born with. Because we are born inside the Dark Matrix we are burdened from way more spiritual amnesia than we rightly should be. We should be aware of our connection to spirit, but we’ve been robbed of that connection. Yet even under the natural laws of the Cosmic or Natural Matrix we would be born into our human bodies with some form of amnesia because we simply couldn’t handle the full memory of our multidimensional selves in this existence. The experience would probably be like taking LSD all day, every day. We wouldn’t be able to function in this material world or appreciate the limitations of the experience. Just like when you play a video game, there are rules in place to make the experience more fulfilling – like uncertainty – you don’t know what’s going to happen. However, the Dark Matrix took over the game and rewrote the rules to enslave our incarnations, to trap us in the game.
So this new paradigm would have us believe that all of these Pre-Birth Terms and Conditions were put in place by the parasites of the Dark Matrix. There is some of truth to this, but there is also a whole lot of fear-based distortion behind this belief as well.
Now, I’m not particularly fond of the concepts of Karma or Reincarnation. It doesn’t sit well with my ego. The idea of signing a Soul Contract has always sounded a little silly to me. And of course, attempting to learn a Soul Lesson is always a bitch. But we need to ask ourselves if our objections to these concepts are perhaps emotional or ego based. Are we simply being children who refuse to clean up our own room? Or are these beliefs really designed to keep us tied down on the energy farm? What if both situations were equally true? It’s a strange contradictory Universe we’re living in, isn’t it.
The more you expand your understanding, the more you begin to realize that both the Light (Service-to-Others) side and the Dark (Service-to-Self) side are playing the same game, with the same rules, on the same field, but for entirely different outcomes. This is not the same as the false duality paradigm of Good vs. Evil and Order vs. Chaos which is manipulated by the Dark (Service-to-Self) side.
Our beliefs tend to keep us enslaved, whether here on Earth or on some lower plane of the after-life still controlled by some Demiurge. We need to move beyond the belief systems and religions that keep us limited in our understanding of the Universe and our true selves, whether that be Christianity or some New Age mumbo-jumbo. Only when we question our long-held beliefs do we experience spiritual growth. And that’s why we are here in this incarnation, to grow beyond our limiting beliefs.
Did you know that the word religion means to bind or limit an adversary? It comes from the Latin word and verb “religare”, which means “to bind”, “to hold back”, and “to bind fast”. In magic, it is a “class of spells intended to thwart and hold back the progress of an opposing force or practitioner.” Source
On the other hand, just because We are aspects of God doesn’t mean that we get to do whatever we damn well want any time we damn well please. It doesn’t mean that we get to make poor decisions without consequence. It doesn’t mean that we are free from the responsibility of our actions and creations. It doesn’t mean that we get to hurt other aspects of God and not have to make amends for being a jerk. This is what small children expect. This is not what responsible adults or fully conscious aspects of God expect. Thus we have burdened ourselves with the laws of Karma and Soul Contracts.
It may help to no longer think of these Pre-Birth Terms and Conditions as religious belief systems. Instead, focus on the concept of energy exchange. The negative energy that has been put into a closed system has to be balanced somehow. You are God. You are responsible for all of your negative energy, just as you are responsible for the mess that you make, in this lifetime and all of your previous lifetimes. You have to clean it up You have to balance it. Jesus (or some extraterrestrial race) isn’t going to clean it up for you. Jesus didn’t come down to Earth to get you out of the mess you created. He came down to teach you to forgive yourself for making it. The only person who is going to let you off the hook is you, your inner-Christ, your real authentic self, the God within you.
Believing these contracts to be a Devil’s trap only strengthens the grip of the trap. You’re evading responsibility for your own creation, bottling up the negative energy of unconscious pain and shame, giving it to the darkness when it simply needs to be released to the Light.
So when I read some blogger’s dark essay obsessing about the Archons trapping souls with binding Soul Contracts and Soul Lessons, convincing them to reincarnate and work off Karma, I have to say, “So what.” Obsessing about these things isn’t going to change it. Exposing it is only telling half the story – a fearful story. I would remind them that, “We’ve already got an ace card in our pocket.” Maybe it’s just too Christian for some people to accept these days, but it really is this simple. Just forgive yourself. Forgive others who have wronged you. That’s how you clear Karma. That’s how you get off the wheel of Reincarnation. That’s how you avoid more Soul Contracts and painful Soul Lessons. That’s how you move beyond duality. These dark entities don’t want you to forgive anything. They want you trapped in repetitive cycles of shame and ego so they can feed off your negativity. You can’t be both fearful and forgiving – these are of opposite polarity, very different vibrations. Stop obsessing about all the darkness and just forgive. It’s not easy, but it is simple.
OK, end of sermon.
I can already hear the protests: “it’s all well and good to forgive, but more love and light wont stop the Illuminati or the Archons from taking over the planet.” Actually, I beg to differ. Cleaning up and creating a more positive vibration will help drive the demons away. They will have nothing to feed upon. They will at least leave you alone. What, you thought you were immune from these parasites? And it will also lessen the off-world inter-dimensional power of the cabal.
But yes, of course, Love and Light is not enough. We need to keep exposing the Truth. We need to keep fighting for healthy food, water, and skies. We need to keep working on alternative energies. We need to stand up to tyranny. We need to do all of these things, and we will accomplish them with greater ease and effect when we transition from our isolated frightened ego selves to our true divine selves.
There is one other type of Pre-Birth Contract that needs to be discussed that probably has a little more relevance to the people reading this post. It’s the notion that you signed up as a volunteer light-worker (ground crew or wanderer) for this incarnation. You’ve already cleared most or all of your Karma. You choose to reincarnate here – you weren’t forced to return. You signed up to complete a job, like a member of the Peace Corps, working in a foreign land. Only, you don’t remember volunteering for anything. You don’t remember what you came here to do. But you know you have some purpose or some mission to complete. You feel it deep inside. Perhaps you are already undertaking it. Perhaps you got a little lost. It happens. You needed to turn around and retrace your steps, find your footing and your confidence.
This is the hardest kind of contract, the one we freely choose as fully conscious aspects of God in our higher state. The world doesn’t appreciate who we are or what we came to do. The world works against us because we are unwelcome intruders. We have come to subvert the system. We have come to clean up our collective Karma and end the duality game. We have come to shine our light in a very dark place. We have come to take down the Dark Artificial Matrix. We are often required to operate in faith. We are quiet ordinary heroes working behind the scenes. And sometimes it does not feel like an honor or a privilege to serve. It feels like a terrible burden. We sometimes forget why we are here, what it’s all about, and where we come from. Raising up a planet from darkness is not easy work. We just need to remember to forgive ourselves.

Soul Agreements are pre-incarnation contracts between two or more individuals. The theory behind a soul agreement involves life scenarios conceived prior to birth. Souls choose relationships and family ties based on the lessons they wish to learn in the human form. There is conjecture among some spiritual groups that soul growth can advance more quickly through human incarnations than in spirit form. Making soul agreements prior to birth give souls a game plan to use to advance their spiritual growth objectives when choosing future incarnations.
Soul agreements are not intended to be too restrictive or set-in-stone based on the belief that “free-choice” is attached to human life. Contractually speaking, you might say that soul agreements have built-in “out clauses.” Our best made plans and goals don’t always work out in life, and neither do the larger spiritual goals. The spiritual being doesn’t always have the “let’s be realistic” mentality that incarnated humans are faced with on a daily basis. Soul agreements are often re-negotiated behind the scenes throughout a lifetime to adjust to situations that disrupts the original ideological scenarios.
Unlike the more rigid karmic connections people who are connected through soul agreements choose to hang out together for a variety of different reasons. Imagine a conversation between soul buddies saying, “Wow, it would be really cool if next time around we could arrange to be siblings, business partners, lovers, or whatever…”
Soul agreements are also sometimes based on “tough love.” For example, a soul may want to experience rejection, abandonment, or some other difficult emotions in the human life classroom. Another soul agrees to take on the role of nemesis. Try looking into the eyes of an enemy, you may be surprised to see a friendly-soul looking lovingly back at you. Something to think about, huh?Learn more holistic healing definitions

(Continued from Part 3.)
The Full-Life Review: The Trailer
I’ve already written two thorough examinations of the full-life review. Perhaps I can rework those discussions to complete our understanding of the role the soul contract plays in our lives.
There are two kinds of full-life reviews. One happens sometimes during a near-death experience, sometimes immediately before and sometimes immediately after death. It’s like the trailer to the movie. This compact full-life review gives us a sample of the film, but not the whole thing.
The second is more often called “the Judgment,” although it has no relationship to its namesake, which ancients believed happened on the Day of Judgment, whatever that may be. I retain the practice here though of referring to it as the Judgment.
It’s the time when we sit down with our spiritual director and go over the events of our Earth life in detail, seeing how closely we came to our soul contract and considering what to accomplish in our next physical life. Since we won’t have a “next physical life” per se after Ascension, we’re simply rounding out our knowledge here of an essentially lower-dimensional process.
The unnamed teacher of Betty Bethards discussed the relationship between the two reviews.
“All people are given a glimpse of this past life as they cross over. After such time as they are ready to really review it in depth and to learn from the experience, then they are shown it in segments [i.e., as the Judgment].
“But upon first crossing over, your whole life will flash in front of you, much as a drowning man will say he saw his whole life flash in front of him [i.e., the shortened review]. This is true of all people. But only when you’re ready to grow from the knowledge will it be given to you in depth, as your understanding is ready.” (1)
Here T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) undergoes his foreshortened review after being killed in a motorcycle accident. It more or less sneaks up on him, beginning slowly and then moving ever more swiftly.
“At first my mind was entirely occupied with my predicament [of awakening after death] and the past did not concern me, but, as I wandered, now one, now another vision flashed across my mental retina. A ribbon of road, boys on bicycles, my cottage, and soon these discrete memories began to coalesce into a continuous series of past experiences.
“Before long I was racing back along the years faster and faster, helpless to stay the record and obliged to feel as well as to remember as my past unrolled back to the earliest childhood memories, I had come to a stand while this disquieting survey held me and as it checked at the unconsciousness of the infant my own consciousness flickered out. At the very moment of oblivion I gasped with relief and just had time to think: this is really the end.” (2)
Philip Gilbert died in a bicycle accident, as a young man. Immediately after, he experienced the shortened review:
“I lay quiet and pictures came before me of myself as a little boy, and you [Philip is speaking to his mother] always there and my room and its nursery rhyme curtains. But somehow I saw all round, you and me and everyone at once. Then I drifted to my school and to Lausanne – we were in a boat on Lake Geneva that time when your hat blew off. Then I was at sea and in that nightclub at Alex. [Alexandria] – all through my life!” (3)
The Full-Life Review: The Movie
The second full-life review, which is the movie itself rather than the trailer, happens much later, after we’re well-adapted to life on the spirit planes. Known as the Judgment, (4) it consists of a lengthy, detailed examination of our life’s actual events, gleaned from the Akashic records, which is compared to the blueprint, soul contract, or life plan we initially set for ourselves. We see where we achieved our goals and where we didn’t and we usually do so with a guide or counsellor (our spiritual director) assisting us.
Of it, SaLuSa said:
“There is no such thing as getting away with misdeeds, although you may have escaped punishment under Man’s Laws. We talk of your life review when your physical life has ended, when each thought and action is examined with a view to determining how much interference or harm it may have caused another soul. Intent is the factor that indicates whether it may have been accidental or deliberate.” (5)
“Be assured that when you pass over and return to the astral planes, you will clearly understand all facets of your life. You will review your life, and this can be a sobering time when you find out how well you have done where your life plan was concerned.” (6)
Matthew Ward’s description of it is the best I’ve seen so let me reproduce that here:
“Akashic Records contain complete, accurate, trustworthy accounts of all universe-wide happenings within eternity and All That Is. Lifeprints, which are as unique as your fingerprints and more impervious to alteration, form each soul’s records, and each lifeprint is a separate file in the Akashic Records.
“A lifeprint is like a lifelong movie, omitting not a single aspect or instant. The information it contains, which automatically and indelibly is registered in energy form, is every thought, every action, and the consequences of every action throughout the lifetime of the person.
“Every action is registered as the deed itself plus the intent and all feelings associated with it. Not only are the person’s feelings about every action and its results recorded, but the feelings of all the people whose lives were affected by those actions.
“After the soul has recovered stability from the previous lifetime and is nourished spiritually and psychically, it is completely aware of its cumulative soul. It is this cumulative soul, with its collective wisdom and knowledge and spiritual growth of all personage lifetimes, that reviews the lifeprint.
&amp;lt;img title=”More…” alt=”” src=”https://d3ojdig7p1k9j.cloudfront.net/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif” /&amp;gt;
“The reviewing process is felt exactly as those feelings were experienced not only by the person, but all the people who were affected by his every action. So you can see that it is quite an experience!” (7)
At times, the Judgment can be painful but it’s always educational and helps us to complete with our most recent life. After it, we may choose to do some work on the other side to repair some of the mistakes we’ve made. But once we’ve carried out the review and repair work, we usually move on from our connection with our last life.
For many people, the Judgment takes place on the First Subplane of the Mental Plane, which we know as the first subplane of the Fifth Dimension. (8) For a very few, it takes place on the Astral Plane, which we know as the Fourth Dimension.
Following the Judgment, we pass through what many spirit communicators call the “Second Death.” (9) Many readers will associate the “second death” with Jesus’s statement: “He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.” (10)
This use of the term is not equivalent to spirit’s use of the term.
Jesus means to say that, if a person overcomes and transcends (“kills”) the ego, they won’t be hurt by the death of the body. The first death is the ego death; the second death is bodily death.
But the Second Death on the spirit side of life involves the shedding of the astral body, leaving us in the mental body – what we know as our light body or merkabah.
The Second Death happens after the Judgement and actually sees the traveller move from the first subplane of the Mental Plane to the second. But in actuality it completes the leaving of the Astral, the first subplane of the Mental Plane being much like a vestibule. (11)
Having said that, when we ascend, our Ascension is an entirely novel development in creation because for the first time we won’t be shedding the body. We’ll transform our physical bodies from carbon-based to crystalline-based. This has never been done before.
Moreover, our Ascension, I’m led to believe, won’t involve a Judgment, as with the transition from the Fourth to the Fifth Dimensions on the spirit side of life.
The full-life review was the occasion on which we assessed how well we accomplished the provisions of our soul contract. We arrived at our life’s plan before birth in concert with our spiritual directors; we responded to the experiences it brought us in our physical life, most often not suspecting the process we were engaged in; and then we saw how we did in the full-life review that followed our transition to the spirit world.
That sequence of events will change upon Ascension. No more will we shed the body in an episode similar to what “death” has been like for us so far. When we wish to change our bodies, we will will ourselves a new one. In that respect, Ascension represents moksha or liberation from the physical round of birth and death. It ends karma and it ends the practice, I think, of the full-life review.
