Your soul’s missions are an important part of your personality, and they’re chosen to support you in fulfilling your life plan for each incarnation. And the pandemic experience we’ve been going through for almost a year has highlighted one of the starkest examples of how missions work.

In today’s sermon, Ainslie and Christine explore what a year of quarantine and social distancing has meant for the soul. Whichever missions your soul has chosen, it’s all about finding balance. Click the video to watch!

souls are social animals 

In March of 2020, infectious disease experts and political leaders began advising citizens to socially distance in an effort to slow down transmission of the coronavirus.

Souls are (in the main) social animals. So, what happens when your soul is forced to isolate itself? Well, let’s just say that it’s been a whole lot easier for introverts to cope with long hours at home than it’s been for the extroverts. That said, not everyone is simply one or the other.

Introverts, Extroverts, and Pandemics – Oh My!

Where you fall on the spectrum of introvert/extrovert is entirely the result of our soul’s missions, and the specific ones you chose as part of your life plan. Some souls are total extroverts. They have a strong mission of Connection. Others are total introverts. They have a strong mission of Avoidance.

A mission of Connection ensures you seek out other souls and avoid being a hermit. A day alone can feel like a year in solitary confinement for some extroverts. In fact, it’s unhealthy at a soul level for an extrovert to be cut off from interaction with others, the way so many have experienced during the pandemic.

On the other hand, if you’re comfortable on your own, never feel lonely, and get irritated or drained from being around too many people for too long, then you’ve got a mission of Avoidance. For someone with this mission, a year of alone time may have felt like a personal retreat. Conversely, being quarantined in an enclosed space with other people might have felt like a nightmare.

The Paradox

Where the combination of your soul’s missions gets interesting is when someone has both the missions of Connection and Avoidance. Or what the spirit guides call the Paradox. It may surprise you to learn that most souls have the Paradox, which causes a person to want to be with people and to get away from them too.

If you’ve ever noticed a push and pull when it comes to being around people, you’ve got the Paradox. You’ll enjoy the company of others, and perhaps even shine in group settings. But afterwards, you’ll feel drained, and will often need downtime to regain your strength.
