Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

When a Loved One Unexpectedly Departs Physical Reality

This post is inspired by a request from Kali, who writes that her partner (father of her two young sons) didn’t physically survive a car crash a couple months ago. She adds that she can’t accept he’s gone, her pain is unbearable, she’s desperately trying to develop herself spiritually so she can connect with the love of her life, and she’d appreciate any guidance The Council can offer.

Do You Believe You are Spirit in a Physical Body?

On November 11, 2013 we did a session with The Council to see if we could get the guidance Kali requested. The Council began this session with the following comments:

“Well first we want to say he [Kali's partner] hasn’t gone anywhere, he is just out of his physical body.

“You are stating you are desperate and trying to develop spiritually, so first we ask you to meditate on this question: Do you believe you are a spirit here, operating in this physical body? Because that is who you truly are.

“And spirit – which is light and energy – never dies; we transition. We choose to create physical bodies to come into this environment and when we are done, we leave the physical body. But there is no dying; there is no end to spirit. Is that understood?”

Every Question is Important

This is the first of several posts describing a 1-hour session with The Council on Saturday, March 30, 2013 to answer recent questions from Jose, Michelle, and D.

Jose’s Question #4

We began the session with Michelle’s question about whether to move to Barnstaple, Devon or Glastonbury (both in England), and when I (Bob) was about to ask The Council D’s question about what she describes as a broken soul contract, The Council interrupted:

“There is a number 4 that we keep seeing; what is that, Bob?”

—The Council
(This formatting throughout the post represents The Council’s comments during our session. Text [in brackets] in these quotations has been added to improve readability and clarity when this seems useful.)

I explained that we have four very interesting questions from Jose and that we answered his first 3 questions based on our understanding of The Council’s teachings because they seemed related to guidance we’ve written about in other posts. It was our intention to ask The Council about Jose’s fourth question in this session and when they asked about a number 4, I assumed they were referring to the Jose’s fourth question. I asked if they’d like me to read Jose’s fourth question to them and they said, “Yes.”

Jose’s Question #4: “If we come to this incarnation to have fun and remember who we really are, why do most people, if not all, fail at this attempt?”

Maria’s Plan for a Great Spiritual Leap

This post is about a question Maria asked after reading a Thought for the Day from The Council titled ‘Everyone In Your Life Was Invited By You‘.

Maria explains her best friend is on his deathbed and she’s experiencing a lot of emotional pain about this. She is asking The Council if it is also with her permission that her friend is exiting her life, because she’s having difficulty understanding why she would agree to ‘loose’ him at this time and in this way.

There is Agreement

“No one comes into your life unless you invite them. Their departing your life is something that they plan along with you, so there is agreement for both of you that when it is time, when you feel you have concluded what you needed to do together, one or both [of you] exit [the physical body].

“And so, although you find this very painful, it has been discussed and planned while you were still in the spirit world.”

Jan & Will’s Telepathic Communication

This post is inspired by a question from Jan about an important friendship with a former student named Will who became like a son to her when his mother passed away. Jan describes feeling a spiritual connection with Will and believes that as spirits before they were born into this lifetime they planned to be in each other’s human lives.

But as Will developed from a child with autism into a young adult he proceeded to withdraw from friends, family, and finally Jan, to the point where she hasn’t heard from him in over a year and hasn’t seen him in three years. After reading one of our blog posts describing The Council’s advice to a reader experiencing a similar separation from her biological twin brother of 70+ years, Jan asked The Council for their view of her friendship with Will.

Communicating with the Spirit of Loved Ones Who Have Passed

Bobby’s Question

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.

How to Create Harmony and Balance in a New Relationship

A Question from Sky

This post is a response to Sky’s question for The Council about how to find “the highest and most loving way to create harmony and balance in my new relationship.” Sky’s full question can be found here.

After reading Sky’s question to The Council, they expressed a desire to address it sentence by sentence to make sure they address each issue.

You Have Access to Higher Wisdom

The Council enjoyed Sky’s reference to them as “Beloved Council.” And they love that Sky is thankful for their higher wisdom, but they remind Sky and the rest of us that humans are spirit in a physical body and we have the potential to access the same wisdom, but we tend to forget we’re spiritual beings with this ability. The Council says it’s their desire to remind us of the wisdom we have within us, and they do this by “knocking us on the head a little bit, and opening the door of our heart a little bit” to help us access this wisdom within ourselves.

August 1, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feeling Your Desire

To raise your vibration
We ask you to have a thought,
Something that makes you happy.
See it in your future.

And if you can’t do that
We ask you to go back to a memory from your past:
Something that made you laugh;
Something that brought you joy.

As you stay in that memory
Your vibration increases.

The frequency of this vibration becomes faster,
And as you are in this state of joy
We then ask you to go into the thought,
Into the imagination of picturing what you want,
But then feel it.

After you have gotten to a state of happiness,
Then begin to feel what your desire is like.
What would it feel like to have it?

And that is what will help you manifest.

—The Council

Excerpted from The Council’s opening comments to participants of a Manifesting Your Desires meeting on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in New York City.

(The Council’s opening comments lasted about five minutes and with the exception of a brief greeting, each statement seems to stand on its own as a thought for the day. Beginning July 25, 2011 we are publishing The Council’s opening comments during this session as eight individual thoughts for the day. This post is the last of the series.)

July 31, 2011 Thought for the Day

Your Vibration

As you feel these desires
Your vibration changes.

And it is this vibration
That will bring back to you
What it is you are trying to manifest.

And many people do not know
How to line up with that feeling;
The feeling of happiness,
The feeling of joy.

That’s what will help you create.

Just Feel It

And so, as you picture in your mind –
And some people are not visual
And they believe they cannot see what it is they want –
Just feel it.

Pretend you have it
And just feel it,
And we will promise you:

If you can feel it,
You will create it.

There is No Going Backwards

And so you are constantly expanding,
Even when you think
You are not creating
What you want to receive.

You always expand.

There is no being stagnant.

We Expand With You

Your life was meant to be fun.
It is your playground.

And as we see you create and expand,
We expand with you.

It is [a] great joy
When we see how you plunge into this physical world
And experience difficulties, challenges,
And turn it around,
And create desire after desire.

July 27, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feel Your Way

You are very powerful,
And the way to create,
To manifest your desires,
Is to feel your way there.

It is wonderful to see it,
To imagine it,
But what brings it in
Is that feeling.

Every part of your body,
Every cell in your body understands.

And as you have those desires
And feel your way there,
The universe will line up all the opportunities
To help you create
Whatever it is that you want.

And we do say
Whatever
it is
That you want.

You knew you had the ability
To create anything you desired.

It’s there for you.

A Better Feeling Thought about a “Failed” Marriage

When any of us isn’t feeling as good as we’d like, the spirit guides known as Abraham frequently recommend looking for a better-feeling thought and they remind us that what we focus our attention on determines to a large extent how we feel.

Sometimes it can be a challenge to find a better-feeling thought. At a recent weekly Meetup.com meeting that we organize on the law of attraction and manifesting the life you desire, someone expressed the belief that their marriage had failed. This person is currently separated from their spouse and in the process of getting a divorce.

Later in the meeting Cynthia agreed to channel The Council, and the person getting a divorce had an opportunity to ask The Council questions. At one point I (Bob) asked The Council if they were aware of any previous lifetimes this couple shared, and how those experiences may have influenced the time they spent together in their current lifetime.

July 15, 2011 Thought for the Day

We have been asked,
How do you love and forgive
Someone who has passed on,
Who who was a hurtful person,
With whom you experienced
Much pain and suffering?

When they return to spirit
They are not the person you remember.
They are light and love.
And when you can send them love and forgiveness,
You are loving and forgiving yourself as well,
And you both expand.

Forgiveness is part of your divine plan.
It’s not only about forgiving others,
But also forgiving yourself.

All the parts of you
That you don’t like about yourself,
And you try to hide,

Are only the parts of yourself
You have created
So you could learn about forgiveness
And experience self-love.

For our first audio post we picked one of our favorite sessions with The Council, and we decided to include the complete session so you can get a feel for what these sessions are like.

When your spirit leaves this physical plane
And returns home,
You experience total forgiveness.

You forgive anyone
Who you feel hurt you
In any way.

And you forgive yourself
For anyone you feel you hurt.

There is the understanding
That it was all pre-arranged,
And everyone performed their role beautifully.
There is only love here.
