If you’re faced with an old pattern you cannot break no matter what you do, it’s probably a past life imprint you’ve carried for many lives.
This was an imprint created lifetimes ago by a different person. All you have to do is not allow this to affect this lifetime and all future lives. But you do need to fulfill a Soul Agreement.
Most are programmed to believe that past life imprints as karmic punishments. This is not the case! As a Light Being, you’ve decided to help the person in one of your lifetimes to heal through you. The repeated pattern is to remember you of this Soul Agreement.
Be well. Be blessed!
