Recently The Council suggested to Cynthia that we write a post to help people who are feeling frustrated in their attempts to use the teachings of the law of attraction and deliberate creation to manifest what they desire in their lives. As two people who often feel these frustrations, we liked this idea and during a session with The Council on Saturday, May 5, 2012 we asked for their suggestions for this post.
The Nitty Gritty
The following Council quotes from throughout that session represent the essence of what they said about the secret to manifesting what is desired. The sections that follow present these quotes in the context of the entire discussion, which provides additional details you may find helpful.
“We see that many [who] are incarnated in your physical world have many questions about manifestation.”
“We see that many are trying to create specific things – whether it is relationships…whether it is material abundance…whether it is health – [and] that there is trouble in creating it.”
“Many do not know what it means when they hear the phrase, ‘Line up with what it is you are trying to create.’ And many are out there teaching to match the vibration of what you are trying to create. Many do not know how to do this because if you’re trying to create something you’ve never had or never lived, there is a doubt – what it would feel like…what it would be like to have this thing or situation.
“So how do you create with your thoughts when you do not have the experience of having whatever it is that you are calling forth? And we believe what many are missing…the secret is: You do not have to line up with that particular thought. You do not have to imagine, even though it is wonderful to imagine what it is that you want [and] that you already have it.”
“So if you cannot line up with the vibration of what it is that you want because you have no idea what it would look like in your imagination or what it would feel like, the answer to this…and this is the answer to manifesting…raise your vibration with happy thoughts. That is the answer.
“When you raise your vibration, everything that you have desired…whether you know how to create it or not…will come to you.”
“It is so simple that many will have a hard time believing this, but we can tell you it’s what you might call the shortcut or the easier way to manifesting. It doesn’t have to be so difficult as seeing that you have it, feeling that you have it, [and] what would it be like? Some cannot do this.
“And so, just be happy about anything. Stay in the feeling of happiness and spirit will bring in everything that it wants.”

The Rest of the Story
If you agree with The Council that their advice seems overly simplistic and difficult to believe, I [Bob] had the same feelings during the session (as the following details of our discussion indicate) and for at least the next 10 days. But after listening to the recording of the session every day, meditating on it, and giving The Council’s advice a try, I’m beginning to see evidence there’s something to what they’re saying and we’re both looking forward to seeing what manifests as we practice reaching for happier thoughts and feelings.
Most of our discussion with The Council during this session is presented in the following sections. Headings have been added in the intention of making this material easier to follow.
This post is a response to a question from a reader named Bobby, who believes, “Spirit…[is], at times, available to us here on Earth when we want signs, information, a visit.” Bobby says, “I find it curious…, when I’ve had sessions with mediums/psychics/sensitives, my wish/want to have a visit or get information from specific relatives does not seem to manifest. …I have questions as to why some seem able/available, while others make no ‘effort’ to so much as send information to us?”
Bobby continues: “I have visited with more than a few reputable mediums/psychics who have given me very clear, relevant information/guidance, so I am fairly certain it is not the person(s) ‘translating’ the information in my situation. And I have most definitely had my fair share of crisis in my life well worthy of someone stepping in and sending me a shout out. But if Spirit is sort of out there willing and waiting to communicate in one form or another, why is it only some want to step forward?”
Bobby also wants to know: “At what time (if ever) is Spirit that has left this realm, available to us here for information? For example, Osama bin Ladin recently left our planet. Is he going to be a Spirit out there that someone, anyone, can speak with?”
They are Always Available
In response to Bobby’s comment that she believes spirit is available, at times, when she’s looking for spiritual guidance, The Council replies:
“They are always available.
This post is a response to a question from a reader named Bari who wants to believe her better-feeling thoughts about her boyfriend will create better-feeling experiences of the two of them together, as taught by the spirit guides Abraham. But when her boyfriend repeats behaviors that contrast her better-feeling thoughts, Bari wonders how much of an impact her thoughts and feelings are really able to have on the experience of her boyfriend, or anyone else, and she asks The Council’s opinion on this.
This post is the third in a series based on comments from The Council during a single session on Sunday, April 15, 2012 to answer three thought-provoking questions from Bari and Rachael. Reincarnation and past lives were the subjects of the first post, and the second post, in this series.
Helping Others with Our Thoughts
Part way through reading Bari’s second question, The Council offered the following initial comments:
“In the non-physical it is sometimes planned: ‘At some point in my life I will meet you on Earth in the physical. And if I am going through something difficult and I can’t remember who I really am, will you remind me by your thoughts? By your thoughts I will feel that energetic change. I will feel the positive vibration that you are thinking.’ And then, of course, it is up to the [other] person to tune into it and expand with it.
“And so your thoughts go out, whether positive or negative. And the soul you are working with or you are in partnership with feels that vibration.
“And so if they are depressed or they are not accomplishing what they want to accomplish, your positive thought vibration is there and it sort of kick-starts them, but you can not control what they do.
“It’s [as if] you hold the light; you hold the remembrance of who they really are for them. And then, if they allow it, they will feel that and they will move forward.
“But when you have positive thoughts or negative [thoughts] about someone, in your experience that’s how you will experience them. Is that clear?”
