Why Do Young People Get Cancer?

This post answers a question from a long-time follower of our blog named Susan, who also has her own WordPress blog: Life Is A Journey…Not A Guided Tour. Susan says she understands that diseases like cancer can be created from a lifetime of fear, but she wonders how someone very young can get cancer. She’s heard it can be to balance karmic energies or help another soul with a life lesson, and she asks The Council for their thoughts.

The Council says there’s a lot of talk about having to pay back karma or balance karma, and they say this isn’t the way karma works (unless that’s what you believe). They say it’s more like in one lifetime you experience good health and you see people who have poor health. And in another lifetime you wonder what it would be like to experience poor health and grow from this.

The Council wants to make clear that poor health is a conscious spiritual choice, not a punishment. They add that you sometimes choose poor health to help others deal with this, sometimes you choose poor health to learn compassion, and sometimes you choose poor health to become more loving and understanding.

While Susan seems to assume it takes a long lifetime of experiencing fear in order to develop cancer, The Council says you choose your family based on the experiences you desire. A child is able to experience fear while still in its mother’s womb and develop cancer within a very short period. Or it can plan to experience cancer because they want to leave this physical reality early, or to help the souls around them experience this. Whatever the case, The Council says it is always planned before coming into this physical reality.

The whole purpose of going through a life and death situation is to have the experience, to allow the souls around them to have the experience, and in some manner bring love into the situation.

The Council talks about what it’s like for a soul to choose cancer to help the other souls in it’s life learn from this. And then closes by saying when someone is experiencing poor health, the best thing you can do is send them love and remember they are spirit in a physical body choosing to experience this. And if they wish to live through this illness, you are supportive of this. And if they wish to leave this physical reality at this time, you’ll be supportive of this also.

Listen to the entire 18-minute session below to hear all The Council’s guidance on why young people might choose to get seriously ill.

Bringing Love Into Negativity

This post answers several questions from an anonymous reader named D, who says it’s been a while since she last spoke to us, but feels she’s moved mountains since then and is finally learning to heal from within. D continues that once she opened her heart and started asking questions, she discovered a new world that taught her about life and her purpose on Earth.

D’s has worked in New York for 16 years and says she never realized how negative an environment it was until she became a more positive person. The Council says D speaks of negativity as if it’s something unwanted, but there are many many people who can’t get to a positive place until they experience negativity. And when they become positive there’s great appreciation for what the negative has taught them.

D finds it’s easier to connect with her higher self when she’s in her comfort zone. And The Council says it’s in this quiet time you can hear your guides, stay connected to source, and get help with what you experience as negativity. They go on to say that you create this negativity to see how you can bring the love you are in spirit into these situations. They advise sitting for 5-10 minutes a day in this quiet and she will hear what she needs to hear, feel what she needs to feel, and connect to who she truly is.

The Council says many people don’t understand what most people call negativity is really something we as spirit have brought into our reality. What we consider annoying people or situations are really wonderful souls who choose to be part of our negativity and allow us to see these situations differently, bring love into them, and grow.

D asks if prayer, meditation, and guidance are the best ways to communicate with spirit guides when we need advice, and The Council says yes. When I asked the difference between the three The Council said prayer is asking and talking, meditation is listening to your higher self, and intuition is the voice of your higher self.

D asks how she can teach others when they’re so close-minded. The Council says people aren’t close-minded; they are searching and growing at their own pace. Teaching is more than words, and some people aren’t ready to hear what you say. You teach by your actions and by example. When you show love, when you show how you’ve grown and how you handle things differently, that teaches more than words.

D says her heart keeps pointing her to Ireland, a place she’s never been and knows nothing about, and asks if there’s a reason her spirit keeps pointing her in that direction. The Council says if she feels this in her heart, this is her intuition and why wouldn’t she go.

The Council suggests D move forward with the main reason she came into physical reality: to bring the love she is in spirit into it. Her negativity is there to teach her to turn it around and help her grow. It may be hard for her to believe that when she looses patience or is angry with someone, it is another part of her in this other person, coming forward to give her more understanding. We are all connected.

Abortion and Creation

This post is about The Council’s answer to an anonymous reader’s question about how many children she’ll have in this lifetime. She says she was told by someone she’d have one boy and one girl, but she recently had an abortion and is sad at the thought she aborted one of these children that she badly wants.

The Council begins by introducing the idea of pre-birth planning. This is the idea that as a spiritual being you plan various aspects of your physical life before you are born. They say the most important thing to understand is that as spirit you are creating your physical life. And after you come into this physical reality there continues to be a spiritual part of you that is still creating your life. And yet so many of us give away our creative power to others.

The Council asks A., who told her she’d have a boy and a girl and why does she assume they were correct when she, as a spiritual being, is the creator of her reality. Suppose she got pregnant again under circumstances that tell her she’s not ready for that child. Does that mean her chances for these two children she wants is over?

The Council says you are a powerful creative spirit in your physical body and you create what you want from your beliefs. And they say this abortion has come into her life at this time to let her learn about creation. And so if she has more abortions, is her desire for children strong enough that it doesn’t matter what anyone says if she wants to create these children in this lifetime?

The Council says everything you want is already created in vibration. And how you bring this vibration into your physical reality is by putting yourself in the highest vibration you can (love, happiness, joy). And without knowing how it will happen, imagine these children she wants in her life. Feel as if she already has it (because she already has it in spirit) and that will bring it into her physical reality.

The Council sees children in A.’s life. The question is will she create this? The Council says no one can do this for her, but she has the tools to make this happen. A.’s grief over loosing a child has brought her to the point where she can change her perception of her life and what she can create moving forward. The Council encourages A. to match the vibration of her desire for these children, to know she is the creator of her reality, and then this must come into her physical reality.

The Council asks A. to see the pattern in her life where someone came along and changed her mind about creating whatever it was that she desired. The issue of her abortion is part of a larger issue of creation and what she is capable of creating when she sticks with what she desires rather than give up her creative ability by believing what other people say.

Listen to the entire 20-minute session below to hear all of The Council’s guidance, and let us know what you think.

Healing Ovarian Cancer

This post is about an excellent question from Katie, who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer and would like to know if there’s “a way I can get my higher self to work with and through me to cure myself of this cancer?” And she asks, “How does one renegotiate a life plan that seems to suck, and rewrite or edit it to remove the suffering, and attract health and a happier and more fulfilling life?”

Katie’s question indicates a general awareness of the spiritual principals discussed in other posts in this blog, but she’s looking for guidance on how to apply them in her specific situation.

The first thing The Council mentions is Katie’s beliefs about cancer and how sick she gets when she has chemotherapy. The say because she expects to experience being sick from chemo, she is creating that experience.

Next they tell Katie her spirit created this cancer as a way to get her to sit and think about what is spiritually lacking in her life.

The Council reminds Katie the physical body isn’t solid. There’s space between the structures of her body. And spirit is always flowing an energetic life force to feed the body. On a physical level when you don’t allow this force to flow freely through you, eventually it will cause physical problems. And what stops this flow of energy is fear.

Katie’s spirit created this cancer to look at the fear within her. So as she asks where in her body is the fear, and why is the energy not flowing there, The Council reminds her to think of this fear as fluid, not solid. It is there to be felt, to be perceived differently, and to flow through her and out of her body.

The Council suggests allowing the energy of love to flow freely throughout her body, picturing it any way she can. And ask her body to show her the fear and ask why it’s not moving. As she begins to feel this energy of love flowing more and more throughout her body she can notice it taking away the nauseousness from the chemo. This movement and love will help her get to the point where she can heal this cancer.

This cancer wasn’t created for Katie to suffer. It was created by her spirit for her to stop and change how she perceives herself, how she perceives things she’s experienced, how she’s dealt with emotional and physical hurts in the past, and to now change this. This is how she renegotiates her life plan. She changes how she perceives herself and who she really is. She changes how she perceives what will happen in the future while working through this cancer.

The Council says just with the intention of finding the love within her, just with the intention of having that fluid movement, just with the intention of connecting with spirit she will begin this healing process. Even if she doesn’t know what she’s doing in the beginning, it is her intention to start this healing and find the answers she needs. Even if she doesn’t know how to picture this fluid movement in the beginning, her intention that she wants to do this will already begin her healing.

Listen to the entire 25-minute session with The Council below to receive all of their guidance, and let us know what you think.

Past Lives, Trust, and Future Reconciliation

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who asks why the man she was seeing said they were together in a few past lives when she doesn’t believe this to be true, and why was he confused how he felt about her. She also asks if there’s a possibility of a reconciliation with her ex-best friend who she does feel a past life connection with.

The Council sees there have been several lives together with the man she was seeing and they ask why is this so hard to believe. They see there is a feeling of not trusting what she’s being told because this man does not have the best intentions. And they suggest the possibility of getting away from this relationship because this lack of trust is a red flag from her higher self.

The Council says by bringing love into this situation she can honestly speak about this lack of trust with this person. But because there’s a trust issue they ask her to look at other places in her life where there have also been these issues. The Council says this person is the one who is helping bring forward these trust issues in her life because that is something she wishes to heal in this lifetime. And they also say that just because they have been in several lives together, this is not a reason to be together in this life. His purpose in her life has more to do with getting her to face her issues with lack of trust.

On the subject of reconciliation with her ex-best friend The Council sees this situation coming full circle and there will be a reconnection in the future and more understanding what this relationship is about. But first she needs to work through her trust issues so that when this relationship comes around again there will be a different outcome with more understanding.

When Bob asked for any specifics on how this woman might look at her trust issues The Council used the metaphor of peeling an onion one layer at a time. When she feels this distrust they encourage her to ask what this reminds her of and see what memory comes from that. And then to ask again and again, going further back in her life, until she finds a pattern to what set off this distrust.

And once she gets to that point everything will begin to change. Her understanding of how these people came into her life to help her experience and work through these distrustful situations will allow her to be more comfortable with the people in her life.

The Council reminds her to meditate on the next step, ask why she feels this mistrust, and to remember she is spirit in a physical body. Ask herself what she was trying to experience and the answers will come.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session below to get all The Council’s guidance for this woman.

Stillborn Birth Revisited

This post in inspired by questions and comments from Janette, who asked about her daughter’s stillborn birth in a previous question and follows up with additional questions now.

After having a Cesarean section for the recent birth of her son, the doctor informed Janette that her uterus was only half formed, and this condition is responsible for stillborn births and several other problems. Having learned this she feels it’s a miracle her second child was born okay after her daughter was stillborn. But now she’s confused about whether there’s a spiritual reason for her daughter’s stillbirth, or whether it was just the physical issues with her uterus.

The Council replies that when she created these challenges in her life, does she understand it’s never something that just happens because her uterus is partially formed? It’s all been planned by her spiritual self for what she wants to learn, who she wants to help.

When Janette asks if her soul planned to be born with a partially formed uterus so she would experience her daughter’s stillbirth, The Council says definitely, and now she’s ready to let this situation go.

Janette asks if her daughter’s soul knew she wouldn’t make it through the pregnancy, and again The Council says, definitely. When she asks if her daughter’s soul planned from the beginning to be stillborn or if she decided when she was 33 weeks pregnant,  as The Council sees her situation it was pre-planned so she and her daughter could have the stillbirth experience.

When Janette asks if she knows on some higher level what the answers to her questions are, The Council says of course you do. They say on your higher level you have all the answers, and she knew she would experience a stillbirth.

Janette asks if she and her daughter didn’t agree to the stillbirth, could it have happened anyway because they had no choice and it was just something medical that happened. The Council is clear that we always have a choice. And they say if there’s a medical problem, it’s because her higher self desired this problem to help her experience this stillbirth. The Council says nothing happens by accident. It is pre-planned and everyone agreed to it. And they see that the stillbirth went according to her plans.

Janette says she thinks it’s the role of our guardian angels to ensure we don’t cross over before our time. She asks if her daughter’s guardian angel was with her during the 33 week pregnancy, and did it allow the stillbirth to happen?

The Council says guardian angels will never step in and change what you have planned in spirit. They’re job is to sort of hang around and make sure things go in the direction you wanted.

When Janette asked why her daughter’s guardian angel didn’t protect her and keep her safe inside her, The Council says she was safe in her. She was so safe that the stillbirth went exactly the way she planed for it to go in spirit.

The Council asks that Janette focus her attention now on the new soul that was just born into your life, to show it love at all times, and to teach it to be a loving person. As this child grows it will be very focused on what it wants to do in this lifetime and knowledge is what will keep him on the right track. The Council advises Janette to be part of the education that he needs. He’s here to acquire knowledge, to bring answers into his life, and be part of the souls that blaze a new trail into the spiritual world.

What is Mental Illness Here to Teach Me?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Persephone who asks The Council why she’s chosen to surround herself with so much mental instability and mental illness in this lifetime.

The Council is quick to complement Persephone on her realization that she’s the creator of what she experiences in her life. And then they ask if she felt there was something very wrong with these people, if she felt above this mental instability, and perhaps she felt she was better than they are.

Now she’s concerned about her own mental stability and The Council asks if she’s afraid she’s also experiencing some sort of mental illness. They say when you create life situations that are frightening to the people around you, it’s normal to think this could happen to you.

The Council says if she can look at these people and choose to focus on the parts of them that were good and loving instead of noticing something wrong with them, and appreciate them for the roles they are playing in her life so she could learn from it, then she’d be able to let go of the underlying fear she’d end up like this. This is what she intended as spirit to experience, learn from, and change.

The Council finishes the session by appreciating the confidence others have to write their questions. This allows them to be of service by helping change the focus, if necessary, in what they are going through. And they remind us to bring love into every situation. They say each person who has come into your life, no matter how short the time, has come to play a role. Send them all love, and send them on their way or welcome them into your life, but always with love.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session below to receive all The Council’s guidance. Let us know what you think.

Helping Others

This post is inspired by questions from Barry, who wants to know why his higher self woke him with chest pains that sent him to the hospital. A cardiac problem was ruled out, but he asks why this happened and how to avoid it in the future.

The Council also sees no physical disability to worry about and asks Barry what the focus of his attention was during the episode. Was it fear or was it hope that things would get better?

This was a lesson about what happens to people around him who experience illness. Does he understand the emotions? Does he have the feeling of empathy and love for people around him with unhealthy bodies?

When family or friends are going through a similar situation, can he have the patience to help the person through it? Can he remember what it felt like and can he be a source of support? How can he ease that fearful feeling? How can he help another get to the hope to feel better? The Council says this is what he wanted to learn from this experience and was what he created while still in spirit.

Can he learn from this and help others? That is what he specifically created this situation for. And when he can learn from the feelings he had and how he handled his situation, he can know how to be of assistance to others and he will not have to experience this again.

Listen to The Council’s entire 5-minute portion of this session on Barry’s question for all their guidance.

Purpose of Sharing This Lifetime

This post is inspired by questions and comments from a reader who identifies herself as D. She says many years ago she fell in love with someone who didn’t love her back and the relationship went from friends, to enemies, to friends, and on and on for years. The Council asks D. how she see’s this happening when she looks back on this, and to focus on the aspect of what was able to bring them back to friendship again.

D. says she felt a strange connection to this man from the first moment she saw him. She’s never been able to let go of that connection and often feels stuck and depressed about it. Recently he married someone else and D. describes feeling more loss and pain. She has moved and stopped talking to him, but the thought of this man is with her no matter where she goes or what she does. She asks why her soul can’t let go and find happiness elsewhere.

The Council says D’s soul is very willing to let go, but her human part holds onto what her future could have been with this man. This leads to feelings of depression and loss because D. feels she’s just this human body rather than a spirit in her body.

The Council explains that truly loving someone is allowing them to be however they want to be, and they ask D. if she can allow this man the happiness he’s found with his wife. And can she now find this same happiness with other people who’ve agreed to come into her life for this purpose.

D. wonders if she and this man have shared past lives together and that’s why she keeps feeling connected to him. The Council says they have shared many lifetimes, but ask D. if she wants to focus on what was, or where she is now, and create her future.

The Council says this man’s role was to teach D. to let go and find love wherever she can. And they ask if she’s ready to let go and find the love she’s looking for within herself. Can she feel the love with every person who comes into her life? As she feels love for herself she will attract love from other people.

D. says she’s always known that love is eternal, and The Council says it’s at these moments that she’s remembering who she truly is as a spiritual being. They say we are all love and we want to bring this feeling into this reality.

D. seems to associate her connection to this man with feeling loss and pain rather than appreciating the time they’ve spent together that’s been good for her. The Council says D. needs to change her thoughts about this man and realize he’s a spirit in a physical body. That is what will give her relief. And then ask herself what else she wanted to experience in this lifetime. And tell herself she’s ready to experience the next part of this journey, to experience love, joy, and happiness. Can she do that?

D. asks why she feels connected to a soul who doesn’t feel connected to her at all and she asks if this connection is one-sided. The Council says the connection isn’t one-sided, it’s just that she chooses to be more aware and learn from this connection.

D. finishes by asking what she can do to stop this feeling of connection and what is the purpose of sharing this lifetime with this man. The Council says there are many purposes and at any moment she and this man were able to choose the path they wish to take.

The Council recommends what she perceives as loss, she now perceive as the love she is that she’s looking for elsewhere. Appreciate the positive aspects of this relationship when she thought it was good. Ask herself what she’s learned that is good from this relationship and how she can move forward by bringing new relationships into her life.

This session appears to have some unusually good advice for D. and the rest of us. Listen to the entire 20-minute session with The Council to get all the detail.

Finding Loving Thoughts in an Unwanted Pregnancy

This post is inspired by questions from Miya who finds herself in an unwanted pregnancy. During the early stages she spoke unkindly about the baby. But now she is trying to find love in her situation and The Council says it’s wonderful she sees that her earlier thinking wasn’t in line with the love she really is.

Miya asks if the soul of the fetus understands the difficulty she’s having with the pregnancy, and The Council says the soul does know and has agreed to be part of the situation anyway.

They recommend Miya find appreciation for the people in her life, even if she feels the father of the child was abusive to her and her friends have abandoned her. The Council says all these souls are playing the part in Miya’s life that she (as spirit) wished them to play. And on some level if she can thank all these people, let go of the abusive part, and begin to picture the right people coming to her life, things will change for the better.

When I mention that Miya may give the child up for adoption, The Council says this is perfect if it’s what she and the soul of the child agree to. Miya has grown while going through this experience and her ideas will change about the kind of life she wants to live.

All of this has come about so Miya can now face these questions and choose from love, not from fear. That is why she is here.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council to answer Miya’s questions and hear all their guidance.

Where Does Evil Come From?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Diana who says that The Council always reminds us we are spirit and we are love and asks where evil comes from, why does it exist, and why would someone choose to experience being evil in a physical body?

The Council’s initial response was that evil is created from our thoughts and beliefs. When I (Bob) said we might need a little more than that, they elaborated.

The Council says we are here to experience any reality we wish to learn from and some of us choose to experience negativity and evil until we realize we created it and we have the ability to change it. Look at these situations as opportunities to learn and grow.

The Council says everything we experience in this physical reality that we consider evil is only here because we wanted the experience of changing it into something more loving. You want to remember who you really are as a spiritual being in a physical body and you have the ability to change evil and bring love into these situations.

When Diana comments there are some people who don’t appear to have a soul or a drop of love in them, The Council replies that everyone has a soul and everyone is love, but what keeps them from experiencing this is they have forgotten who they truly are. The challenge is to remember this.

When Diana asks how someone who manifests evil can be spirit and love The Council reminds us that spirit and human are one being who loves itself so much it allows us to experience whatever we choose while in the human body, and find our way back to who we are as spirit.

Listen to the entire 7-minute session to receive The Council’s full message.

The More You Focus on Somethin the Bigger it Becomes

This post is inspired by an anonymous support worker who asks The Council why schizophrenia appears to be growing in Western societies. The Council responds that by focusing on schizophrenia it will seem like there is more of it in your life. It appears to be growing because it is the focus.

When a soul can no longer handle their life, they can create another world for themselves where it seems like they are two different people and they aren’t so focused on this reality. Interestingly The Council adds that most of the time a soul chooses schizophrenia, it’s for the people they interact with. There are many lessons these people are helping other souls learn by choosing schizophrenia, as well as experiencing it for themselves. This is an interesting concept that can be difficult to understand – the idea these people experience their a reality for the purpose of helping the people around them.

When I (Bob) asked The Council if schizophrenia is growing in our Western society, they respond that it isn’t growing for everyone. And as we understand that we create our own reality, there are many people who never hear of schizophrenia; it’s not an idea in their head. And yet for the people who want to learn something from schizophrenia, the more they focus on this, the more it will appear to grow.

The Council reminds us it’s important that what you focus on, you will continue to bring into your life. And when the focus on schizophrenia isn’t as important, it will begin to disappear. But being a caregiver, schizophrenia may be all around this person at this time in their life. The Council advises them to look at this and ask themselves why they created this.

Can they understand there’s a soul in these schizophrenic bodies and they are being this way for them to grow from this? Ask what they are learning from this. Can they be around these people and offer them love? The Council encourages us to believe these people will feel the love even if it doesn’t seem possible. Can you feel these people with schizophrenia are there for you in spirit to grow from this experience?

If schizophrenia is in your reality, the question is how can you bring love into this? Listen to the 7-minute session below to get The Council’s full response to this interesting question.

Will I Have a Child, and Will It Be the Soul I Aborted?

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who recently had an abortion and wants to know if she’ll ever have children. The Council says yes, this is planned for. And when she asks if the aborted soul will return to her as her child, The Council says there’s a great bond between these two souls from sharing many lifetimes and they see an agreement between the two of them for this soul to return to her.

When this soul returns The Council says it will be male, and sees them learning much from each other. But mostly this child will come to help Anonymous on her path, and guide her to be different from how she’s been.

Anonymous says she thought she’d find love and get married, and wants to know why her positive affirmations about this aren’t working for her. The Council points out that even though she is using positive affirmations, she doesn’t believe this will happen. They say until she has more positive beliefs, her negative beliefs will continue to create what she doesn’t want.

When I (Bob) ask The Council for advice on how to change her beliefs, they say her affirmations are good, but they advise her to meditate, read spiritual books, and start practicing the manifestation of small things at first. When she can create these small things by thinking of them, and feels grateful when they happen, she will know that’s how she also creates the bigger things she wants in her life.

The Council advises her to appreciate herself and feel a happy vibration as often as she can. And they say meditation will help with this. They advise her to never give up her dream of being married to a man she loves. And they remind her that by feeling this won’t happen, she’s defeating herself.

The Council asks her to focus on the kind of man she’d like in her life, and by feeling this, that kind of man will be drawn to her. They advise her to ask the question in her mind as men walk by, are you the one? And thinking, I’m ready. If she can play this game, this will help her attract the man of her dreams.

And she’s also asking how she can bring positivity and change to her health and her career. The Council says with her meditations, her being more focused on happiness and the kind of partner she wants, and knowing a child is waiting to come to her, there is a new beginning and staying in these happy thoughts will change her health.

The Council asks what she wants to be, and looking for what she is interested in she’ll find it. By putting it out there that she wants a new, interesting career and being ready for this, she can draw this in.

The Council says the changing of her vibration will quickly fix her situation, and they advise her to have fun reading spiritual books, have fun meditating and looking for a new career, and most of all have fun playing the game of are you the one? By believing she’s ready for abundance and happiness, and that she’s ready for a child, all of this is there for her.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council below for all the details.

What Do My Soul, Heart, and Ego Need?

This post is inspired by a brief, but powerful question from Margaret, who asks: What do my soul, heart, and ego need? It’s a short question, but The Council’s answer is full of insight that applies to many, if not all of us.

The first thing The Council reminds us is that it’s good to realize we are spirit in a physical body, and that we are here to bring love into all situations we experience. This was our main purpose for coming here and they go on to say there isn’t anyone here who doesn’t have a spirit with them to guide them.

The Council says we’ve chosen our challenging situations because we want the experience of turning them around by looking at them with the love we are, and experiencing them differently.

They remind us our most powerful tool is choice. Every day in every situation you have the choice how you’ll handle these circumstances, and how you’ll move through every experience.

When I (Bob) point out their guidance for Margaret seems a little general, The Council says their guidance is what Margaret needs to know at this particular time, and it’s specific to her needs.

They suggest she read many of the spiritual books available and they mention by name those written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel. They close by reminding Margaret she is loved, and she has The Council’s support and blessing.

Listen to the entire 4-minute session to receive it’s full meaning and let us know what you think.

Is the Soul of My Aborted Brother One of My Children?

This post is inspired by a question from Laurel, who wants to know if the soul of a child her mother aborted has come to her as one of her children. She says she still thinks about this abortion 30 years later.

The Council says the soul of Laurel’s aborted half-brother is not the same soul as one of her four children in this lifetime. What The Council does see is a lifetime in ancient Egypt where Laurel raised and taught many of Pharaoh’s children. And each time a child died or was aborted there was a hurt she is trying to heal in her current lifetime. Her children in the current life made an agreement with her to come in and help her experience the joy of having them around.

The mother’s abortion brought up Laurel’s disappointment so it would, as she says, “haunt” her.” But her children in the current lifetime are there to stir Laurel’s memories of past lives and to help heal that hurt. She is at the point where she’s ready to explore this and slowly share it with her children so their minds and belief systems can open and they can become aware of other realities.

The Council realizes Laurel is bothered by her mother’s abortion, but they advise appreciating the children in her life right now, how they’ve helped her get to this point, and how they encourage her to heal this disappointment.

In the same way she was unable to prevent the Pharaoh’s wives from aborting their children, she was unable to stop her mother from aborting her brother. The Council points out Laurel’s disappointment with her mother for this, but says it is so she can heal it now and get to the point, with love, where she can understand what happened. She can allow her mother to be who she is. This is the law of allowing.

The Council advises Laurel to meditate on these things and begin to look at them differently. She hasn’t lost her aborted brother or Pharaoh’s aborted children because we are all connected in spirit. When Laurel understands The Council’s teaching that she is spirit in a physical body, she’ll experience many healings from her lifetime in Egypt, and The Council will be with her as she goes through this.

Listen to the entire 16-minute session below to hear all The Council’s guidance during this session and let us know what you think.

Would My Pregnancy Miscarry if I Didn’t Abort?

This post is inspired by a comment from A. who describes her situation as similar to L in the post, “Should I Get Pregnant After My Abortion?” A. says she never expected to have an unplanned pregnancy because she was on birth control for 17 years. But she switched to a natural contraceptive for health reasons, got pregnant, and felt an abortion was her only choice.  Her boyfriend didn’t want the child, and having it on her own would be difficult.

She wondered why this happened, and she asks The Council if her sense the pregnancy would miscarry if she didn’t abort was accurate. She couldn’t continue without the support of her partner, and decided with love to abort.

The Council says A.’s decision made with the feeling of love is the right way to go, and that a miscarriage down the road was not her plan. They see she got together with this partner and agreed spiritually to experience this pregnancy, and then experience making a decision on what to do about it independently.

Her partner played his part by not treating A. as lovingly as he did at first, and having her realize she’d be raising this child alone. Wanting to go through the experience of getting pregnant and not relying on another person’s opinion on what to do, A. went with her feeling of love and chose to abort.

In her past lives The Council says A. made a lot of decisions to please other people, or just take their advice. In this lifetime A. wants to become more independent. The pregnancy was planned by her, her partner, and the child (who would have come if A. chose to keep the baby), but knowing she’d have to raise the child alone she was courageous enough to abort.

The Council asks A. to look at the situation she’s gone through with her partner and see what can be learned in love through this. His situation was to have the courage to say he didn’t want to go forward with the pregnancy. If both were unable to fulfill what they wanted, the outcome would have been very different. Both experienced something they ultimately wanted, and The Council sees this as growth for them.

The Council congratulates both A. and her partner and say it’s not always easy to accomplish what’s intended. This was a good outcome, which The Council hopes will bring them much love and happiness. Listen to the entire 9-minute session below to get the full meaning. Let us know what you think.

You’re Here to Experience Everything With Love

This post is inspired by a question from Ali who asks if you have a natural talent for something are you obliged to use this talent.

The Council says there’s no obligation. You come with gifts and you chose whether to use them or not. There is no should. You have a talent you brought forth in this lifetime if it brings you pleasure to use it. They ask what is the purpose of practicing art, even if you are talented, if it doesn’t bring you joy. You are suppose to enjoy what you do; find fun in it; love it. These are the things you want to do in this lifetime.

The Council says they are here to hopefully give people clarity and help them feel better. They remind us we are here to bring love into every situation and know you have the choice of what you want to experience and how you want to experience it. And they remind us it’s our purpose to bring love from our spiritual reality into our human reality.

Look at every part of your life and ask if you are bringing love into it. Can you make your life more fun? Find a better way to experience your life. There’s no need for guilt or fear. When you experience these emotion it’s because you’ve forgotten you are pure love and light. That’s the true you.

You’re so much more than your body and the person you are in this reality. You’ve had many other lifetimes and many talents. Great beauty and great love is within you. You’re here with many spirits to experience anything you want to experience, and your intention is to experience everything with love.

The Council’s closing thoughts go beyond Ali’s questions to answer larger questions you may have about your life. Listen to the entire 6-minute recording to benefit from what The Council is saying.

Should We Be Vegetarians?

In this question from Ali she asks if being a vegetarian raises your vibration. She understands animals agree on a spiritual level to be eaten, but she assumes these animals suffer and asks if we have an obligation to stop this suffering by not eating meat.

The Council says there are healthy vegetarians, sick vegetarians, and people who only eat junk food and are the healthiest people you’ll ever see. The difference is their beliefs. How you live a life that feels more comfortable to you depends on how you think about it. The Council says these animals do not suffer and it’s not necessary to become a vegetarian, but if you truly believe this is a better way to go, then travel that road.

Ali says she’s not currently a vegetarian, but feels a lot of guilt when she prepares meat. The Council asks her to look at why she puts herself in a reality where she feels guilty, and says only she can change it. They say explore whatever feels good to her and know that this is her higher self showing her the path it wishes to experience.

Listen to this 4-minute segment of a session to hear The Council’s full guidance.

The Difference Between Worry and Guidance

This post is inspired by a question from Ali, who asks the difference between intuition and worry. When she feels the loving source of well-being, she knows everything is okay spiritually, but she still worries about physical events, mainly with her child. She wants to know how to tell when to accept these feelings as guidance and when to ignore them as worries.

The Council says guidance always comes with a calmness while worry comes from fear. You may feel a tightening or nervousness with fear, but with guidance and intuition you generally experience how to move through a difficult situation. They give an example of feeling intuition about a car accident, but you feel calm about it and take extra care while driving to prevent the accident.

Ali asks if her chronic worrying affects her point of attraction even if she doesn’t express it out loud. Ali has a lot of fear about vaccines and waited until recently to have her daughter vaccinated. The Council says Ali’s fear created the difficulty using her leg that her daughter temporarily experienced as a result of the vaccination.

When I asked if the situation is okay now The Council answered that it depends on how Ali focuses her attention. They remind us we create future experiences with our thoughts and if Ali continues to worry, she’ll create situations that keep her worrying. They recommend she acknowledge her worries, try to look at the situation differently, and ask herself how she can turn this worry around.

The Council says if you change the way you think about something, when it’s time to experience what you’ve been thinking about you can have a better reality than if you stayed thinking more negatively. Have a listen to the 6-minute part of the session with The Council to hear their guidance.

Why Was My Baby Stillborn?

This post is inspired by Janette, who had an almost full term stillborn baby girl in February 2014 and she’s been researching the spiritual reasons this might have happened. She and her husband had just gotten married and they were very excited about having their first child.

Janette asks if her and her daughter’s higher selves knew ahead of time what was going to happen the day her daughter’s heart stopped and could she have done anything to prevent it. The idea this was an accident is difficult for Janette to bare and she wants to know if her daughter chose to be stillborn.

The Council says the higher selves of Janette, her daughter, and her husband knew the baby wasn’t coming into this reality no matter what they tried to do. The child only wanted to experience what took place in the womb and wasn’t ready to experience a full lifetime. The Council says Janette and her husband spiritually agreed to allow their daughter to have this experience and at the same time Janette desired an opportunity to work through an experience of disappointment. It was 3 souls loving each other and helping each other experience a situation they all desired.

Janette says she was nervous as a first time mother and hoped her daughter didn’t experience negativity from that, but The Council says it’s fine if the child experiences what Janette was feeling because it chose to experience those emotions. Knowing what this soul wanted to do, Janette and her husband agreed to give this soul a temporary home to experience what it wanted to learn, and then pick the time and the way it wanted to leave.

The Council suggests Janette find the love she gave her daughter and understand that other spirits might not have been able to do this. She allowed this spirit to experience whatever it wanted while it was in her body, and this soul helped her experience whatever she needed to experience going through this.

Having this spirit leave put her on a new path of having to ask why this happened. If Janette can find a way to appreciate what they did for each other and feel the great love they have for each other without any guilt, she’ll realize they fulfilled each other’s wishes perfectly. Listen to the entire 18-minute session to receive it’s full benefit.

Doesn’t Know How to Change This Reality

This post is inspired by a question from Diana who says she doesn’t like the reality she’s experiencing and doesn’t know how to change it. All her life she’s believed true love is the answer to every question and most of her life has been a quest to find this love. But fate keeps bringing the wrong people into her life.

She says it’s been so many years of loss and pain she can’t imagine a different life, can’t go on even for the sake of her child, and can’t see any light at the end of tunnel. Diana asks what’s the point of continuing to live in this reality if you’re never going to find what you seek?

The Council agrees with Diana that true love is the answer to every question, but they remind us it must start within her. They say love is the beginning of the change she’s looking for, but she must learn to love herself first.

If Diana wants more loving people in her life she has to change her vibration in order to attract them. We choose what we experience to learn from it. If it’s a difficult, unloving, or hurtful experience we’ve planned, we’ll remember how to change it by bringing love into it.

Start by finding something to appreciate about what she’s experiencing. Do little things that make her happy. Find the parts of herself that are waiting to be recognized. If she wasn’t ready for this change then The Council wouldn’t be having this discussion with her.

Think about all the good things Diana has done while she’s experienced this difficult time. She’s at the point where she wants to create her life differently and The Council sees this as a wonderful step. Find parts of herself she loves and admire them. No matter how hard she’s created her life, she has come through it and is ready to change it.

As she appreciates her life Diana will have the energy to go on and she will get more clarity as she moves forward. As she experiences this gratitude and love for herself, life will get better.

Listen to the entire 19-minute answer to Diana questions for the full impact of The Council’s wonderful answer.

Should I Get Pregnant After My Abortion?

This post is inspired by questions from L who asks if she should get pregnant again after having an abortion. It was a difficult decision because her partner was clear he didn’t want to become a father and she was too afraid to become a single Mom. During and right after the abortion L was surprised by the love she was surrounded by and not feeling guilty towards this unborn soul.

The Council says L is one of the few people who actually feel love from the aborted soul and her spirit guides during an abortion, and they say this is exactly what everyone going through this should feel. There is no reason to feel guilty and no reason to punish yourself because you think you have done something wrong.

But now it’s a few months later and she’s experiencing a lot of sadness and regret. She suspects the abortion was to open her maternal instinct, which she thinks would have remained closed otherwise, and now she’s thinking about becoming pregnant again. The Council advises her to try and remember, even if it’s just for a short time, the feeling of love she experienced during the pregnancy and abortion, and that would help her with any decisions she needs to make.

But her partner is still afraid of becoming a father and she doesn’t know whether to give it more time or to end the relationship because she’s already 35 years old. The Council says he might be a great Dad if that’s his choice, but they remind L it’s not her place to make the choice for him.

L asks why this happened to her, how to deal with it, and if there will be another chance for children with this partner or another partner. She thinks maybe her desire for children now is her way of coping with the abortion, but The Council says being a mother is something she wants to experience. It’s up to her whether she persuades her current partner, finds a new partner, or changes her mind about getting pregnant again.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session to gain the full benefit from The Council’s guidance.

A Second Abortion

This post is inspired by a question from NZ about her second abortion. She says her first abortion was a long time ago, was for the right reasons, and she has peace with it. But when she got pregnant after giving birth to her two wonderful sons it was pure panic, fear, and like something took over and made the choice to abort for her.

She had the abortion to provide a stronger love for her two boys, her partner, and herself, but as soon as she made the decision to abort it she felt regret. NZ wants to know why she was so afraid of this child. The Council says it’s because of past lives and stories she’s heard, but she’s created this in her life so she can turn it around. They say if she can change her beliefs about being pregnant, think about having a healthy child, and move forward without the suffering and the fear from before, then she has accomplished what she’s set out to learn in this lifetime with this soul.

The Council finishes with a message for anyone who’s experienced an abortion. It’s a touching thought and well worth a listen to The Council’s 15-minute session on NZ’s question.

Is Monogamy Okay?

This post is inspired by questions from Julia who was married for 12 years and has been divorced for 2 years. She asks why non-monogamous relationships disturb her so much and wants to know if she should be more open to them?

Julia was monogamous in her marriage, but now has questions about open relationships as a single person. Sometimes she thinks she should try it because she gets so obsessed in her romantic relationships, but the thought disturbs her to the core.

The Council suggests Julia find the love for herself she’s looking for in relationships and asks why she wants to experience something she knows will be unpleasant in order to fit in. They also suggest Julia listen to herself and ask why make herself uncomfortable.

The Council advises more self-love, more doing for herself, and being gentle with herself to draw in the right people.

In one lifetime she was one of many wives and wasn’t made to feel special. She was lonely, didn’t receive enough attention, and that began her uncomfortable feeling she carries into this lifetime. Perhaps knowing where this feeling of uncomfortableness with open relationships comes from will make it possible to release this and work on loving herself more.

The Council says it’s fine to be in monogamous or non-monogamous relationships, but encourages Julia to choose what’s comfortable for her and ask why she’d put herself in a relationship where there’s no comfort. Choosing a monogamous relationship with someone who has similar beliefs would be easier for her.

Listen to the entire 9-minute conversation with The Council to hear all of what they had to say.

How to Work with Crystals

This post is inspired by a question about working with crystals from a long time reader named Jan who’s particularly interested in glass-like Andara crystals.

The Council begins by advising you to buy Andara crystals from someone who’s reliable and knowledgeable about them because they look like glass and many are not the real crystal. And they say when you hold one of these crystals you should immediately feel a warmth in your hands.

They talk about the ways crystals were encoded with information and knowledge in Atlantis, where Jan experienced working with them in another life. And they talk about meditating with crystals to receive the knowledge held within them.

The Council says Andara crystals are excellent for healing and developing psychic abilities and they recommend a way of working with them on the body for healing and for grounding.

And they recommend a way to work with multiple clear quartz crystals placed on different parts of the body to enhance meditation, psychic ability, and intuitiveness. Listen to our 11-minute session with The Council to answer Jan’s question.

Abortion Insights

Ali’s questions

This post is inspired by 2 question from Ali who asks The Council for insight into a recent abortion.

Ali had an abortion in her 20’s that’s never troubled her. Now she has an amazing daughter. She found out she was pregnant again recently and had an abortion because she felt afraid and stuck and couldn’t see another way out.

Ali says she doesn’t understand why she experienced so much dread and misery around this pregnancy and once it was over she felt sadness, loss, and regret. In her response to a different post Ali says she believed indecision played a part in her abortion, and she wonders how a decision that felt so right before could feel so wrong after.

The Council says Ali had many choices how she’d handle her situation, but mainly she desired freedom and the abortion was how she accomplished this. They point out that indecision wasn’t a factor; Ali was quick to terminate the pregnancy. The feelings that came after are because she experienced a loss and they remind her that this is growth.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session with The Council to hear all of their guidance.

Was My Stillborn Child a Family Member Who Passed?

This post is inspired by a question from Jyoti who asks if she shared a life with her stillborn child? Jyoti says a lot of her family have died and she wonders if it was one of those souls wanting to come back and be part of the family again?

The Council says Jyoti has a strong connection to this soul and they have shared many lives together, but they don’t see this particular life as one of them. In a life as far back as Atlantis she worked with this soul as a teacher. During the early American Indians they left their tribe and went out on their own. During the first World War there was deciphering messages and carrying information to others. In this lifetime this soul came forward to help Jyoti understand something about this pregnancy.

The Counsel says Jyoti has a strong connection with this soul and she can connect with it through meditation to get information about this life and past lives. Instead of feeling loss for the child Jyoti experiences support and guidance from this soul. If it’s wanted, Jyoti will have another opportunity to give birth to this soul, but there is much to learn from this soul while it’s still in spirit.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council for all the details.

(Note: Bob mentions the fetus was aborted in the recording, but Jyoti mentions in a comment that this child was stillborn, not aborted. We imagine from The Council’s point of view they consider that the fetus aborted this pregnancy because it chose not to come into physical reality while Jyoti and her husband were moving around, but Jyoti feels the distinction between abortion and stillborn is important and aught to be made. We apologize for this error.)

Why Go Through Pain to Have Your Soul Grow?

This post is inspired by a question from Asher who asks The Council why it’s necessary to go through pain and hardship in order for our soul to grow? He feels sad human beings aren’t capable of anything else and he wishes to enroll in a cosmic school where spiritual growth is a positive experience.

The Counsel says Asher is already in that school and it’s not necessary to create situations where growth only takes place through suffering and struggle. He has the choice to change his life through his beliefs.

If Asher feels the only way his soul can grow is through suffering, that is what he’ll create. But The Council says we come to this world to grow in love, not through suffering. And as we stay in the vibration of love, less struggle will occur.

The Council advises Asher to take his greatest power, which is choice, and change the way he sees this. In response to his comment that humans aren’t capable of anything else The Council replies that humans are also spirit. They are one and whatever you go through, you learn from it together.

This session is only about 5-minutes long, but there’s lots of valuable information in it. Listen to what The Council has to say for the full story.

Child Wants to Stay Home from School

This post is inspired by a question from Susan who asks if it’s more loving to let her son stay home from school when he doesn’t feel well or to force him to try to walk through his anxiety and go to school. Her son is a 12 year old sixth grader who she describes as very energetically sensitive, dyslexic, has ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and sensory issues. Her son missed school on Friday and 15 minutes before going to school on Monday he developed a stomach ache. Susan is looking for guidance that will help her in situations like this. She’s concerned about his anxiety ruling him, but she also wants him to make it to the other side of his fears.

The Counsel says much of her son’s stress is related to remembering his past lives when he was abandoned, had no family, and couldn’t speak out. When he’s ready they suggest speaking to him about the help available from spirits and angels when he feels this way, and reminding him these problems aren’t what he’s experiencing now. Susan’s job is to listen to her son, show him he’s heard, remind him he has a lot of love, and each time he experiences this difficulty he gets through the day.

At some point he’ll remember his past lives and this will alleviate much of his fears. Get him to go though his fears by talking about his day. This will bring more understanding. His spirit chose to work on this problem in this lifetime and Susan has agreed to help him learn to speak, to hear and understand him, but not to solve it for him. He’ll do that himself. There should be many talks the night before school and the morning of school reminding him in this lifetime he has the gift of speech and can talk about what’s bothering him.

The Council can’t tell Susan when to let her son stay home and when he should force him to go to school. It is part of her lesson to listen with her heart and know when he can stay home and when he should go to school. Each situation is different. When she chooses to let him stay home, get him to speak about this problem. That’s your agreement in this situation. Together they will move through this.

It’s important to point out that when you force him to go to school he’s gotten through this, but Susan has to believe in herself and know when to push her son to go to school and when to stay home. Susan can’t solve this for her son. She is to be supportive and together they will work through this problem.

Susan’s fears of what happens to her son will create that so no matter what’s going on with her son Susan’s job is to see him succeeding, becoming more sure of himself, seeing him more at ease. The more Susan focuses on this the more she brings it into her reality. Between the two of them there’s a lot of fear that needs to be worked out and the Council sees this happening.

Listen to the entire 24-minute session on Susan’s question to get the full benefit of of The Council’s guidance.

New Challenges and Will I Be Bi-polar Again

This post is inspired by questions from Ana who asks The Counsel about new challenges she faces in her life, to which The Counsel replies these challenges are her own creation. Ana goes on to ask if fighting makes sense in order to maintain her situation. And she asks if she’ll become bi-polar again.

The Counsel reminds Ana we come to this reality to create love, not suffer and go through hard times. But because of what we believe and how we think, we find these situations coming up in our lives.

The Counsel says when she feels it’s a fight to save a relationship or a reality she’s created, Ana’s not seeing through the eyes of who she truly is. They ask her to look at what brought her to this relationship in the first place and they remind her she has a choice whether to leave or stay.

And there’s the question of whether she becomes bi-polar again and The Counsel says this was also her choice. They ask what she’s learned from being this and they encourage her to look at it differently. They say if Ana can change the belief she needs this then she can create something else.

Lastly The Counsel reminds Ana she’s spirit in a physical body and to bring love into every situation.

Attempts to Heal with My Hands and Intent Don’t Work

This post is inspired by a question from Barry who asks why the healing modalities he’s studied don’t seem to work on him. He says attempts to heal with his hands, his intent, and help from guides isn’t returning his body to normal health and he asks The Counsel’s advice.

The Counsel sees the problem as one of Barry’s belief and they suggest that no matter how he feels, see himself as healed no matter what. See himself whole, as he is in spirit when he came into this body.

When Barry takes the healing modalities he’s learned and uses them on others and sees them as love and sees them as whole no matter what they are going through, he’ll also have more healing coming to himself. And as he gets in the habit of seeing the person who is ill or has emotional problems as whole and then use this on yourself, Barry will begin to see a difference taking place in his owns body. It’s the vibration of love and wanting to help heal others that heals himself as it comes through you.

Listen to our 3-minute session on Barry’s question to get the full picture.

What is the Name of My Spirit Guides?

This post is inspired by a question from Wendy who asks what are the names of her spirit guides and how many does she have?

Many people desire the name of their spirit guides, but The Counsel says spirit guides and angels don’t assign themselves names. They only come up with them when it’s something needed by you, but that isn’t what this is all about. They say what’s important is the feeling of connection you have with angels and guides and the information that comes through to you.

Can you accept that spirit is with you to help you? Go with the feeling. Stay in the vibration of connection and the information will become more important as time goes by. But if it’s really needed, ask for the name of your guide or guides. You can even specify how it will come to you.

The Counsel reminds Wendy and the rest of us that in the end we are all one and asks if it’s really necessary to name your guides. When Wendy says she believes she’s gone through the appropriate steps to communicate with her guides she gets nothing, but The Council says they feel she has gotten much information.

The Counsel suggests Wendy meditate on her spirit guides names if this is important to her and they give her a brief meditation for this.

Listen to the 7-minute session to hear The Counsel’s full answer to Wendy.

How Do I Release My Connection to This Soul?

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who says she’s suffered over a contract with her soul mate that he’s repeatedly broken. But The Counsel says there’s no contract to break, just an agreement, and it’s time to change it, to end it, or redesign it.

She seeks a release from the suffering she’s experienced, has no interest in men she meets even though they’re interesting, says she wants out of the relationship with her soul mate, and doubts she’ll feel love again although she’d like to. The Counsel asks how she can never feel love again when that is what she truly is. It is her essence even though she chooses out of fear, frustration, and anger not to experience it.

The Counsel says the man she calls her soul mate isn’t involved with other women out of weakness, but because he’s searching for love and that’s all good. They suggest she move forward in a loving spirit and understand this is just a plan that’s taken a turn. Nothing is wrong. There’s just a different way to experience the love she thought she’d have with this man.

The Council says the most important thing to remember is that these two people agreed they would try to bring love into this reality. But there are difficult times and the question is, can you stay in the love? The Counsel believes she doesn’t feel this love for herself so they say to step away from this relationship and find it. When she finds it things will change for her. It’s possible it will be a magnet that will bring him back or she will bring in new people that are the same loving vibration.

Will the Soul be the Same in a Future Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by a question from an anonymous reader who had to terminate a pregnancy for medical reasons. She felt a special connection with the soul who was her baby and asks The Council if it will return in a future pregnancy.

The Council is happy she doesn’t feel bad about terminating this pregnancy and says that half her lesson was learned when she let the child go and was okay with it. They ask her to reflect on this and see what feelings come up for her.

They say it’s always possible for the soul to return if an agreement was made that way, but ask if that’s so important, and if another soul was to come to her would it be a disappointment. The Council says they see this soul returning to A., but what if there were others after that? Would it be loved any less?

Listen to the full 5-minute recording of this session to get the whole story.

Will My Aborted Child Return My Next Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by comments and a question from a woman named A. who says she became pregnant after quitting her job to go back to school. She decided to terminate the pregnancy so she could continue her education and provide a better life for her family, but feels concerned she took something away from her son. She asks The Counsel if this aborted soul will come back to her the next time she gets pregnant.

The Counsel says that A. didn’t take anything away from her son by having this abortion and that the spirit of the son participated in the decision. They go on to say the aborted soul will return the next time A. gets pregnant and it will be a very strong connection.

A Stillborn Pregnancy

Jyoti’s questions

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Jyoti about a wonderful pregnancy she had in early 2013 that ended in her giving birth to a stillborn baby. It tells the story of a spirit who originally planned to be her child, but just before birth agreed with Jyoti’s loving spirit to remain in the non-physical so it could learn more before coming to the physical world. She wants to try and get pregnant again and give birth to the same soul, but the pain of loosing the child left her feeling sensitive about this.

Having this soul again

Before this pregnancy she wasn’t so keen on having a child, but now all she wants is to have this soul again. She now has the understanding that all souls have purpose, pick their parents, and if they’re not ready to come into the physical they remain in the non-physical.

A Dream

In a dream the spirit came to her with a message and Jyoti asks: Why did he leave us? Is he coming back? What does this message mean? Should we try again now or wait until we’re more mentally prepared?

A Strong Connection

The Council sees a strong connection between Jyoti and this spirit and while they cannot say when she should become pregnant again, if all goes as planned there’s a good chance this spirit will return to her. So they ask Jyoti to speak to the child at night before she goes to sleep, ask if it’s ready to return, tell this spirit about their life, and see what happens.

Decision and Indecision

Kim’s question

This post is about a question from Kim concerning a pregnancy she terminated over the summer and getting pregnant again.

After originally becoming pregnant Kim felt bad about it, terminated the pregnancy, and now feels guilty about her decision. She doesn’t understand what made her feel so negatively and wants to get pregnant again.

She asks The Council if the pregnancy she terminated was a creation of her own soul, like our post on Beth’s situation, or if it was a separate soul. And if she became pregnant again would the same soul return to her.

The Council’s answer

After some back and forth with The Council it became clear that Kim’s terminated pregnancy was an agreement between Kim and another soul, which is different from Beth’s situation where her own soul created the pregnancy she later terminated. Because they feel Kim is inclined to believe the other soul is responsible for terminating the pregnancy, The Council repeatedly emphasizes the agreement between Kim’s soul and the other soul to make this happen.

A lesson about indecision

The Council says the important reason for this termination is the hard lesson of indecision in Kim’s life, and they suggest looking at and working on this pattern of indecision that she and this other soul have manifested. That’s the way she’s trying to get answers, to change what she’s going through, and to learn that she creates everything that happens in her life.

Would the same soul return?

The Council sees no present agreement between the other soul and Kim’s soul that it would come back if she got pregnant again, but they also don’t rule out the possibility either. In the end The Council seems to think Kim’s questions relate more to her indecision and are less about getting pregnant. Why don’t you have a listen and see what you think?

Choosing Love vs. Battle

Gail’s question

In this post Gail talks about identifying with the spiritual warrior and asks The Council what this means to them. The Council responds by saying they don’t see Gail as a warrior. They ask her to look at her life and see that what she wants is a change in the way she’s manifesting. The warrior is one way to give Gail the strength she needs to make these changes, but The Council adds there are other ways.

Peaceful warrior

The Council adds that Gail can go in the vibration of the peaceful warrior, in the vibration of joy. And yet if she feels things are difficult and she needs to fight her way through to change what is not wanted, then the spiritual warrior is available to her. Both ways will take her to her goal.

As The Council has said many times, the bottom line is what she believes. If modeling herself after a warrior gives Gail comfort and that is her belief, then use this. But if if she can become the peaceful warrior, going within and finding the joy she truly is, there is nothing she cannot accomplish.

The choice is Gail’s, but The Council asks why go into battle when when she can go into love.

Nadine’s House 11-5-2014

This post is the first since Bob’s mini-stroke so we’ll keep it short. Usually we just include the recordings of The Council only, but you’ll notice we’ve included four additional recordings after the closing. We thought they were sufficiently interesting to be included along with The Council material. We hope you enjoy them.

You Are Responsible for What You Do In This Lifetime You Are Creating

Using audio playlists to publish more frequent posts

It’s been a challenge to publish posts as frequently as we’d like. The process – record a session with The Council to answer a reader’s question, transcribe the recording, study the recording and transcript, and write a post to give you an idea what the session was like and how we’re understanding the material – has been somewhat time consuming.

Now that we’ve figured out how to include in a post an audio playlist of a recorded session (if your browser supports this), we hope to publish more frequent posts that make these session recordings available without the extended written content typical of most earlier posts. As time permits it’s possible we’ll update these posts with additional written content, particularly if reader/listener comments indicate an interest in our thoughts on something in the session.

Ask The Council in-person group sessions

The session this post is devoted to is different than sessions described in earlier posts. It’s a recording of a group session. These are sessions we’ve recently begun doing with small groups of people near our home on Staten Island in New York. These meetings are hosted by someone acquainted with The Council’s teachings and is interested in helping others experience The Council in person.

A typical group session

When several new people attend one of these meetings for the first time, there’s usually some general discussion about The Council and their teachings. Otherwise there’s usually an opportunity for people to comment on material from earlier sessions and on how that material might be influencing their day to day experience. Next is a short guided meditation intended to help people be more receptive to experiencing The Council, followed by the actual session with The Council, and then some post-session discussion of people’s impressions.

During the session The Council typically opens with some discussion of a topic they feel is appropriate for the people attending, and then the session is opened up to questions from participants. For the most part we expect the playlists in these posts will only include the portion of the meeting where The Council is speaking through Cynthia and participants are responding.

This group session

The title of this post refers to the subject The Council began this session with – the idea each person is responsible for what they do in the lifetime they are creating. They emphasize you are not responsible for creating the behavior of other people; you are only responsible for your experience of other people’s behavior. This can be confusing if you’re under the impression there is little or no difference between someone’s behavior and your experience of it. But The Council says there are many ways to experience someone else’s behavior and you have the free will to choose.

At the top of the playlist below (in quotes) is the name of either the first track, the track currently playing, or the most recently played track. Just beneath that is the date and place where the session occurred. Tracks are numbered, have a title indicating a main idea on that track, and the track length in minutes and seconds. The tracks should automatically play one after the other and then begin the first track again.

Understanding Your Spiritual Intentions for Your Human Experiences

This post is inspired by a question from Susan, who wants to know why some people (particularly a man she knows) experience childhood abuse or other types of trauma and end up with addictions, unemployed, and homeless; and other people (particularly Susan) move past their childhood trauma and take advantage of opportunities to improve their life.

What humans and spirit consider improvement can be very different

“But what you do not understand here is that your idea of what he needs to improve his life, and what his spirit needs to improve his life, is totally different. Is that understood?”

–The Council
(Text formatted like above throughout the post represents quotations from the session)

This was intriguing and we spent most of the session getting a better understanding of what The Council meant by this. The result was some impressive insights into the relationship between who you are a human being and who you are as a spiritual being. As an added bonus The Council offered some fascinating insights into the subject of multiple realities.


Audio recording

The audio player below (if your browser supports it) contains a recording of the session with The Council to answer Susan’s question. The session is divided into multiple audio tracks listed below the audio player bar. To listen to the entire session select Track #1. The rest of the tracks will automatically play in order. Text above the play bar indicates the track that’s playing (or ready to play if the recording is paused). Copyright ℗ 2014 Bob & Cynthia Dukes

Play: Click triangle (►). Pause: Click icon (||) that replaces the triangle while the recording plays. Fast Forward/Rewind: Click to the right/left of the play bar during play. Mute on/off: Click speaker icon. Volume: Click bar to the right of the speaker icon.


You have no idea what spirit wishes

The Council continued from their previous comment above:

“So if you [Susan] feel that he has had several opportunities to change his life or perhaps somehow deal differently with his abuse, yes that would make sense to many. But you have no idea what his spirit wishes.

“And what we see here is that it is his wish to be in this lifetime and to experience this addiction, to experience the abuse from what you would consider an unhealthy attitude toward what he has come through.

“What you do not know is that he has experienced this before (or as we would say, now [but] in another reality) and he has experienced it where he is dealing differently with his abuse and (perhaps) handling it in (what you would consider) a much better way [in his current reality]. Is that understood?”

Connecting with Your Higher Self to Manifest the Realities You Desire

This post is inspired by a question from Irina, and her question was inspired by our following thought for the day post:

“It is the spirit’s job to create the perfect life you want to live and to provide you with all the challenges and joy you want to experience. Spirit knows exactly what you want.”

–The Council

Irina comments that she’s pretty good at manifesting, but it’s much easier for her to help other people manifest what they want than it is for her to know what she wants and set an intention to manifest it in her own life. Irina wants to know how she can connect with her higher self and get the information The Council says her spirit knows about what she wants.

The Council says they see that Irina is able to help others manifest their desires, and they encourage her to take a good look at beliefs she may have that prevent setting her intentions on manifesting her own heart’s desires.

Here are some highlights of The Council’s answer to Irina’s question. You can hear their comments in the context of the session by playing the audio recording (available at the beginning of this post when viewed in a web browser).

Your Spirit’s Purpose – Helping Others or Finding Joy?

Lola’s question

Lola wants to know if The Council thinks service to others is the underlying purpose of spirit, and her question appears to be inspired by the following quote from The Council that was posted as a Thought for the Day.

“You are pure spirit expressing itself in the physical. You have come to enjoy the dance of life – sometimes leading, sometimes following – but always with the intent to find joy in every step.”


Listening to the audio recording

You can listen to a 10 minute audio recording of the The Council’s answer to Lola’s question using the audio player bar below. Copyright ℗ 2014 Bob & Cynthia Dukes

Here are some excerpts of The Council’s answer to Lola’s question.

You are here to bring love into physical reality

“Well #1, you have come here to bring (as we have said before) love from the spirit into your physical world. Now many believe life should be of service to others. Helping one another always brings love into the situation, which is what we [all spirits] are going for — this is our goal.”

Loving is service to others

“There are some [who] believe [that] in their service to others, they will help the poor, they will volunteer for some job in a hospital, [or] teaching, and that is wonderful because this is needed.

“But coming into this reality, just radiating the energy of love is just as important as going out and volunteering at some particular job. … So it is always your choice. What do you feel brings you joy? With joy comes love, always.”

Choose Better-Feeling Thoughts for a Better-Feeling Life

Anne’s question

This post is inspired by the following question for The Council from Anne.

“Do you see me in a loving relationship with a man coming into my life? I have created the space and I am open to be with an amazing man.”

Audio recording

The black bar below plays a 2½ minute recording of the segment of a session with The Council to answer Anne’s question.

Keep Focused on What You Desire

The Council’s answer to Anne’s question emphasizes the importance of your focus of attention and how this relates to getting what you want in your life. The following Council quotes are session highlights to help you decide if you want to use the audio player above to listen to these comments in the context of the session. The first comment below was their response being read the first sentence of Anne’s question: “Do you see me in a loving relationship with a man coming into my life?”

“No, no, no, no, no [quickly 9-10 times]. Does she see herself in a relationship with a wonderful man coming into her life? Do you see where we’re going [with this]?”

“Talk about it… feel it… imagine it… draw pictures of it… watch romantic movies. Whatever it is that keeps your focus [on] the relationship that you want, right down to every detail that you would like, is a wonderful exercise.

“And so do we see it? Yes, we do see this. It is there in what she would consider her future.

“It is also there [in Anne’s future] that she does not meet this particular man that she would have a wonderful life with.

“It is her focus [that determines] what will be brought into her life. But if she, [as] she says, clears the space [and] focuses on this [relationship], yes we do see this for her.”

How is your attention focused?

If Anne consistently focuses her attention on the relationship and the man she desires in her life, The Council says they see this happening for her. They also mention the possibility of a future for Anne where this doesn’t happen, and The Council emphasizes Anne’s focus of attention on her desire will determine the future she experiences. The question is: what kind of focus of attention will allow Anne to experience her desired outcome?

Was Abortion Part of My Soul’s and My Unborn Child’s Soul Plans?

Ask The Council audio recordings

A couple years ago we experimented with including audio recordings of Ask The Council sessions in a few of our posts. With this post we continue to make these recordings available to readers in the hope they’ll shed additional light on The Council’s teachings.

Beth’s question about abortion

In June 2013 we published a post to answer a question for The Council from a reader named Beth about the subject of abortion (Abortion, Loss, Reincarnation, Life, Love, Expansion – Beth’s Story: A Spiritual Perspective). Interestingly, but maybe not surprisingly, this post has received many more views from readers than almost every other post except our Welcome post, and it has received almost three times the number of comments of our next most commented post (also excluding our Welcome post).

Emmy’s question

One of those comments is from a reader named Emmy who says:

“I think this post is great in helping understand [abortion], as it can be overwhelming at times. I had an abortion in 2012 and I still think about it every day. And I want to ask The Council if the spirit will come back to me in the future, and was it part of our soul plans?

To listen to the recording of The Council’s answer, left-click on the triangle (►) on the left side of the audio player below. To pause the audio player, left-click on the icon that that replaces the triangle (||) while the recording is playing. You can also left-click along the length of the audio player to skip forward or backward in the recording. The volume can be toggled off and on by left-clicking on the speaker icon, and the volume can be adjusted up or down by clicking on the right or left of the horizontal bar to the right of the speaker icon.

We feel the spirit will come back

The Council begins by posing a couple clarifying questions for Emmy before offering their answer:

“You want to know if the soul will come back in your future, in this particular life?… in another life in what you consider the future?… will it return?

“Yes, we feel it will, in other realities – in what you would consider future lifetimes. There is never a loss or an ending when you are together with spirits who have come to help you.”

“This spirit may choose not to come in as her child. We see they will choose to be together, probably many more times, but in different roles.”

Spirit’s Availability in Your Human Experience

It’s one thing to go along with the idea you’re a spiritual being in a physical body, but to what extend do you believe spiritual reality is available to you in your day-to-day human experience? This is an issue for a reader named Bobby, who says she believes it’s important to reach for her connection with spirit. But she seems to rely on psychics and mediums when she wants guidance from relatives and spirits no longer in their physical body, and she wants to know why spirit doesn’t seem to come forward to help her in those sessions.

You Are Never Cut Off From Spirit

As I (Bob) read Bobby’s question to The Council they were quick to point out spirit’s availability, and they emphasized this throughout the session.

“They [spirits] are always available.”

“You are always in touch with these people you believe that have passed on. And while you are waiting for them to appear during a session, you have visits with them constantly. Most [visits] are when you are asleep in the physical body. You connect with these people.

“And we would like to say here that if you have gone many times to other psychics and mediums, and you believe these people [spirits] are not coming forward to speak to you…, maybe it is in part for you to know that these other people, these other psychics, are not necessary for you to connect.

“And so if you meditate, if you ask for signs, in one way or another these spirits (who you believe have passed) will come. And while they may not come and sit down and have a cup of coffee with you, they will come and show you that they are around. But you are constantly in conversation, and you are constantly meeting with these spirits that are passed.”

“When you sleep, when you are what you call unconscious, the beliefs of time and space do not constrict what you can do, and you can, with your thoughts, be in communication with the spirit world, and you can be with the others that have passed. You are never cut off from spirit.”

“Spirit is always willing to communicate, so perhaps…the psychic is not hearing the communication. But usually that is so you can on some level become more determined to have a communication, and know (and here we go again back to you are a spirit in a physical body) you can have this communication yourself.”

“This desire to communicate with others that have passed on, it is important that Bobby understand they are always around her; they are always communicating with her.”

–The Council

Who You Really Are

“Help all to understand how [you] are all connected,
and to acknowledge who [you] really are:
the spirit in the body.

“It has been done many times,
and yet this is still an important topic,
so we say to teach all
to acknowledge, to find, to connect,
to who [you] really are.”

“As all the great masters have taught,
as many of the books now published explain who [you] are,
which is pure energy, pure spirit, light, vibration,
existing in a physical body–
the physical body being needed
to manipulate around on the Earth plane–
but it is the greater understanding of who [you] truly are
that is important at this time.”

–The Council
(Excerpted from a session February 27, 2010)

When You Serve

“It is automatic when you serve,
when you extend yourself to help others,
it is an automatic reward to the one extending this help,
but not where you would question,
‘What is in this for me?’

“It is a true feeling of love from the heart,
to be of service with no prize, with no return.
And yet there always is the prize,
[there is] the return.”

“It is the helping with no thought of your reward.
It is just the helping.”

“Your vibration grows,
your heart expands.”

“There is more and more understanding
[that] comes into the consciousness.”

“It is law.”

You Are Loved Into Creation

“You are loved into creation.”

“Source,
wanting to experience more of itself,
