What does Soul Level mean?

I am a believer that our animals are here to help us learn Soul Lessons throughout our life.  Sometimes they will mirror for us to teach us, sometimes they teach us in the most annoying of ways because it is their only way of getting through to us. 

Sometimes these lessons are taught by more than one animal in our life. The lessons are often the "big picture" stuff that we are working on or sometimes we are completely oblivious to the lesson and our animal is taking extreme measures to teach us.
