Soul contracts are a key part of our energy systems. The soul contract is located in the 8th chakra and holds within it, the driving force of your purpose. When you feel a deep desire for something, a calling or soul churning force, it is most likely something that is inherent in your soul contract. It is the 8th chakra that informs your entire life, by way of your chakra system, as to what choices to make and which direction to go.
