The Soul Path Codex

Updated: 5 days ago



The Earth Game is a tremendously intricate and complicated mechanism. Every soul who enters this space participates with their own set of talents, strategies, and objectives. This article discusses some common paths souls will take strategically over many incarnations in order to acquire useful traits, skills, lessons, and experiences that will lead to full remembrance in pursuit of potential in the Universe.


My goal is to bring these strategies into your awareness so that you can identify your strengths, understand the bigger picture and steer yourself comfortably into the path of least resistance. Maybe absorbing this information will allow you to identify certain characteristics within yourself that can help you know who you have been before, how that is affecting you now, and what it might mean for your future self.


Some things you should keep in mind as you read:


-The soul plays the long game. Paths focused on a specific experience usually unfold over many lifetimes and are complimented by paths taken previously or concurrently in order to create balance during the growth.


-The soul is looking to remember. The experiences it focuses on are tailored with this in the forefront.


-The soul will often incarnate into situations where it can learn lessons it missed in previous lifetimes.


-The soul will also seek specific experiences that it can carry with them in order to improve future incarnations. During the separation, the soul is looking to assist the collective while acquiring as much potential as possible.


-The path chosen is not singular and is a combination of multiple paths, one path, however, might be at the forefront of the experience. You can be a Healer, Explorer, and Scholar in the same life but being a healer carries the most weight.


We will start by listing the kind of path, then we will explain what the soul was trying to accomplish or acquire by taking this path. We will then list some of the benefits and drawbacks of this strategy. Enjoy!!
