Before incarnating in a physical body, your Soul created a specific life plan that included both enjoyable and unpleasant experiences necessary for growth and learning. We live in a world of duality where both “good” and “bad” things are possible, at least from a human perspective.
As part of this evolutionary package, you chose to work through a primary life lesson here because there is literally no other place like Earth in the Universe.
Earth is the only realm where you can incarnate in a physical body and simultaneously experience life mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. This planet’s energy feels dense, heavy, and slow moving with its linear time and space continuum that is not present in other places of existence.
All Souls who choose to incarnate here know that life on Earth is not for the faint of heart, but also recognize the immense Soul expansion that can occur.
When you think of your primary life lesson, one of the first things that probably comes to mind is that you need to complete a karmic task to get from point A to point B, but it’s not about crossing something off your spiritual list, it’s more about embodying the lesson in your everyday life.
You actually already are doing this subconsciously. Whether you consciously know it or not, your Soul has been attracting people and circumstances that have assisted you with this transformational process.
Let’s say your primary life lesson is authenticity. Since polarity is a trait unique to the Earth blueprint, you will learn the ins and outs of authenticity through both its higher and lower expression. Not only will you have direct experience of true authenticity in all its glory, but also what it feels like to lack authenticity in certain life areas.
How long it takes to complete a primary life lesson depends on your own Soul’s pace. Primary life lessons sometimes take multiple lifetimes to complete. Sometimes just one lifetime is enough.
A Soul who’s had many lifetimes won’t necessarily be wiser than a newer Soul, it also depends on the lifetimes’ quality of experiences. Some lifetimes will be more productive than other ones.
Becoming aware of your primary life lesson can help direct your energy towards the life areas that need the most attention and ultimately catalyze your Soul’s sacred work.
