Letting Go of Soul Contracts with Raccoon Medicine
Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:
11. Raccoon Medicine – raccoon is known as a trouble-making pest. However, he made an agreement to show us how to learn from our mistakes and misfortunes. When we acknowledge the garbage we’ve been feeding ourselves, we are free to choose differently.
Are agreements creating conflicts in your life? If so, can you tell what they are?
Healing Action: Access agreements, attitudes and Soul contracts held in the central nervous system. Release or renegotiate those that no longer serve you so you can realign your agreements to support your highest good.
Bandito of the Jungle
Many ages ago, the rainforest raccoon made
a contract with the humans.
He agreed to disguise himself as a
thief and trouble-maker so that
the humans would have someone to blame
for their misfortunes.
He agreed to do this until
the time when humans remember
that their misfortunes
are actually their greatest gifts.
It’s time to release your contract with raccoon
and all those who have
hurt you or caused you sorrow.
Release yourself and make a grand feast
out of the refuse that has, until now,
been disdainfully tossed to the side.

Further Exploration into Raccoon Medicine:
You are blocking your own progress because you keep going back to past grievances and reliving them. Its time to release your attachment to misfortunes by letting go of the agreement to buy into them anymore. Once they’ve been released, look for new freedom and unexpected opportunities, then go for them.
Raccoon wants to remind you that the purpose of agreements is to help you navigate reality, which sometimes seems like nothing but a huge pile of garbage. He says, “Agreements are how we co-create our reality. Why not create common ground for mutual benefit?” He knows that working together effectively requires the agreement to do so. Yet, if common ground cannot be reached, it may be time to let go of the arrangement entirely.
Perhaps pain and suffering is being prolonged because on some level, you are unwilling to learn from your misfortunes and apply the lessons to your everyday behavior. Would the ego prefer to blame others and is more comfortable by keeping you powerless? Let go of your agreement to organize around your wounded identity. There is no freedom in keeping a grievance and playing the victim. When you take ownership of your behavior, your personal power is returned and progressive action is possible once more.
You are being warned to be cautious when making new agreements with other people. Make sure that you’ve done your due diligence and fully understand all implications of the agreement. Make sure the terms are beneficial to you. If they are not, can they be re-negotiated or amended?
Agreements that are made from the ego’s point of view are filled with contradictions, obligation and trickery. Be sure that any agreement you make is something you would joyfully participate in.
