This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Juan, who asks The Council for an explanation of the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting. For those of you unfamiliar with these two topics, manifesting as it’s used here is the creation of something wanted or unwanted in your life by focusing your attention on it. And the buffer of time refers to how long it takes to create in your physical reality what you are focusing on.
The Council says there isn’t any set buffer of time. They say you will create in your life according to your beliefs, your seeing what you are thinking about, feeling it, and knowing it’s yours to have.
The Council asks how strong is your thought of what you’d like to manifest. Do you constantly focus on it or do you focus on it, but then forget it for a day or two, which makes the buffer of time last longer. Do you focus on something and then doubt whether it will come to you because it’s not coming quickly enough?
The Council says just by having the desire for something, it is yours in a non-physical reality. If you can stay in the feeling and vibration of what you focus your attention on, and not doubt you can have it and without giving up, it would manifest almost immediately, but they say most people are unable to do this.
The Council says the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting what you are focused on, is entirely up to you.
Listen to this brief, but thought provoking 2-minute session we had with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Juan and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Merry, who says she’s always had a tumultuous relationship with her mother and asks The Council to shed light on the relationships they’ve shared in other lifetimes.
The Council begins by saying Merry and her mother had very good relationships in other lifetimes and they remind her when the lifetime we share with a person is challenging, it’s not always considered a bad lifetime.
The Council says Merry and her mother were mother and daughter in a lifetime around the 1400s and were very close. At that time there were witch hunts and because her mother was good at making medicines for people someone accused her of being a witch. When this happened her mother tried to hide her daughter, but she was found and was drowned as the child of a witch, and her mother was locked in a cell for the rest of her life.
Merry and her mother agreed in spirit to return in their present lifetime, but her mother brought the memories of this previous lifetime with her. Instead of working with Merry to have a wonderful life, she turned off her emotions because she was afraid Merry would be taken away again. The reason Merry feels coldness from her mother is that her mother was afraid of being connected to her.
When Bob asked if there was a way to break down these barriers Merry feels with her mother, The Council said it would be difficult, but she should try to show her mother love and help her with everyday challenges. Love conquers everything. Show her mother signs of love in the littlest thing she does and the barrier Merry feels will begin to change. The purpose of this lifetime is to figure out ways to get close.
Merry says her mother is kind of her best friend, but her role as Merry’s mother ended when her brother was born. The Council says if Merry feels her connection with her mother now is one of being friends, can she learn to appreciate this? Can Merry see how her mother needs her as a friend? As Merry begins to appreciate this friendship the relationship will be able to develop further.
The Council says because both Merry and her mother were trying to make this lifetime work, they brought in a lot of fears that they are trying to overcome. Merry can meditate on what she’s gone through. She is strong. By asking about these challenges Merry knows there is more to what she’s experiencing in this lifetime. This shows she’s on the right path because a part of her that’s questioning knows there’s more and wants the answer. This is Merry’s connection to her higher self and is her spirit trying to get her to understand what The Council is talking about. Now, going forward, how does she handle things?
The Counsel closes by saying that through understanding what her mother has gone through and through meditation Merry can show her mother more compassion and more love, and when she can do this her situation must change.
Listen to our entire 17-minute session on Merry’s question about her relationship with her mother to hear all The Council’s guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Mariner2Mother, who read our post, Has Cynthia Been Communicating with a New Consciousness?, and says it got her thinking about consciousness and the act of creation. She appears to ask if consciousness chooses to exist as a human being when it chooses to perceive itself as an individual, separate from everyone and everything?
The Council says consciousness knows it is one with everything. And consciousness knows that itself, as spirit, is able to multiply and create many lifetimes. All things are learning, growing, expanding, and creating on their own level, but we are one whole consciousness.
The Council says consciousness will create situations were it will perceive itself as an individual, but at the same time our higher self knows that it is one and is creating itself as an individual in this lifetime or another lifetime.
The Council says we are all connected. Your friends and family are also you. We learn from everything. In a larger sense, you are everywhere and everything. Our thoughts are shared by everyone, but we may not realize it while we are experiencing our individual lives.
As a parting thought The Council reminds us that as we help another person grow, we also grow.
This session may be a little more difficult than most to understand. We’re still getting benefits from listening to it. Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council on Mariner2Mother’s question about consciousness and creation to hear all their guidance on this subject. Perhaps listening more than once might be helpful, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a follow-up question from a reader named Michelle, who was advised by The Council to think better feeling thoughts after she terminated a pregnancy and she’s asking for help with this.
The Council advises Michelle to concentrate on who she is as a spiritual being and to think about the direction she’d like her life to go in right now. They ask if she feels secure about not having any more children, which they feel is a decision made by Michelle’s husband.
The Council advises Michelle not to feel guilty because she had an abortion. This abortion was pre-planned in spirit by her and the soul of the child she aborted, and she and the child have fulfilled what they wished to experience.
The Council asks what Michelle has learned from this abortion. Does she wish to get pregnant again and have another child? They tell Michelle only she can make this decision.
The Council says the aborted pregnancy was a wake up call for Michelle to take control of what she wants and not do what other people want her to do. It’s about changing her path and waking up to what she wants in her life. This is how her higher self planned to bring her to this point and then move her forward.
The Council advises Michelle to every now and then gently bring up the idea with her husband that the thought of having another child makes her feel happy. How she speaks about this can make her husband more open to having another child. The Council also recommends doing the inner work of seeing things the way she wants them to be and imagine it’s already happening, because it is happening in another reality. They advise Michelle to bring this reality to her with her thoughts and feelings.
The Council advises Michelle to let go of any guilty feeling about terminating her earlier pregnancy. As she stays in the vibration of guilt and sadness she cannot create the joy she wants. They say to go into the vibration of joy by thinking of good memories and fantasizing a very happy future. As she feels her mood begin to feel more positive, that’s when she’s able to create what she wants.
The Council says Michelle’s husband is possibly influenced not to have another child by his elderly mother living with them and perhaps when his mother passes, his mind would begin to change.
The Council says the soul of Michelle’s aborted child would like to see Michelle change her life and begin to think about what she would like her life to be like going forward. This is the reason for the abortion.
Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Michelle and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Audrey who was reading a book on theoretical physics that suggests the forth dimension is not time, as many people believe, but instead is spatial. And Audrey asks The Council if this is the case.
The Council says the forth dimension is spatial, but it is considered more as time. They say living in the forth dimension would be like living in the three dimensions we know (height, width, and depth), but more like a hologram. They repeat that everything in the forth dimension is time.
The Council says time is experienced differently in the forth dimension, almost as if you were etheric, existing there with no beginning and no ending. The forth dimension is not solid or at the same pace as the third dimension. The timing is quicker and you are less dense. There are many of you, like a hologram, and they say in this space you can be everywhere at one time.
They say it is difficult to understand and suggest we meditate on this.
In their closing The Council reminds us to remember our promise as we came into this reality to bring love to this reality, no matter what reality we are experiencing, and to meditate on that.
Listen to our 4-minute session with The Council to answer Audrey’s question for all their guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from an Anonymous reader who asks The Council if the soul she recently aborted will return to her in a future pregnancy. She says this abortion wasn’t an easy decision for her and her husband and she’s been missing the baby and feeling like a guilty, bad mother. She says oddly she didn’t feel connected to the baby while she was pregnant. Only after the abortion did she feel connected to this soul.
The Council says she wanted to experience how she’d feel when someone she loved passes on and she created this in a way where she was pregnant and aborted the child she felt no connection to. Now that the child is gone she feels the connection and has the opportunity to learn the lesson that love is forever. The connection she felt in her physical reality isn’t broken when one soul returns to spirit.
The Council says she pre-determined in spirit to be able to become pregnant again and it was agreed that this same soul she aborted would return in this future pregnancy. She was not a bad mother. She was creating a lesson for herself, and they ask her to remember that lesson when others she knows pass from this lifetime.
There is a sadness from not being connected in physical reality, but she can still feel them and talk to them in her mind and dreams. They say this connection was an important lesson for her to learn and to share with others.
The Council says the spirit of the baby that was aborted was part of this decision. It knew it would be aborted so the mother could learn the lesson about love transcending physical reality. But this soul would not go away and if Anonymous brings this soul back there will be many new lessons they will learn together. Anonymous did exactly what she pre-planned in spirit and has no reason to feel bad about terminating her pregnancy.
In their closing The Council asks us all to remember our promise as we all came into this physical reality to bring love into this reality, no matter what the reality is. Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by follow-up questions from Vacha, who terminated a pregnancy, returned to India with her son, and separated from her abusive husband in America. Now she’s asking if her marriage is finally over or can it still work out if she gives it good thoughts and positive energy?
The Council says the end result of Vacha’s marriage is entirely up to her. They ask her what she sees in her life right now. Is she getting along better with her husband, and have circumstances changed that made their life together so miserable for her?
The Council says Vacha will create with her beliefs what happens in her marriage. If she believes her husband won’t change and thinks she’ll be wasting her time trying to have good thoughts and a happy marriage, The Council says she is already in a negative vibration. They add it’s possible to create happiness with anyone, but she must believe in this happiness. If she believes she’s tried time after time to make her marriage work and doesn’t see a change, then there’s a belief her marriage will not change.
The Council says Vacha pre-birth planned in spirit to learn independence in this lifetime, and they suggest once she experiences this independence then it may be possible to change her relationship with her husband for the better.
Vacha also asks about her mother and father and says her mother is dealing with bad treatment from her own father (Vacha’s grandfather). The Council asks Vacha how she feels about this and does she see her future becoming like her mother’s.
Vacha says her mother and father don’t have a good relationship, and The Council asks her to look at this. Is this what she wants for herself? In order for Vacha’s parents to feel better they would have to begin seeing each other differently. They will need to talk about things they like about each other and appreciate the years they have been together. They will need to change their thinking and focus on positive aspects of their relationship.
In their closing The Council asks us to remember the promise we made in spirit to bring love into this lifetime in everything we do, and they suggest this is what we should meditate on.
Listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council on Vacha’s questions to hear all their guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a comment from EG, who says they see so much animal abuse and cruelty and they feel like they can’t do much to help.
The Council says the reason these animals take on abuse in this lifetime is to awaken people to what’s going on and to get more of us to have the courage to step forward and stop this abuse. It is the abused animals way of bringing more love into this planet.
You can ask yourself, what are you doing to change this abuse? If you help one animal, you have made a change. You have showed caring and love and are part of the change that you want in this reality.
The Council says it can be sad to witness abuse, but remind yourself you are spirit and now that you’ve seen this abuse you can do something about it and go into help mode to change it. That is why your attention is being drawn to this abuse.
The Council says as you reach out and help, you will feel the change within you. Your higher self will fill you with the feeling of love and being proud of yourself because you are part of this change.
The sad part is if you notice abuse and walk away from it, expecting someone else to make the change. You are seeing the abuse because your spirit is bringing you to it because it’s part of how you want to help in this reality by bringing love into it.
In their closing The Council asks all of us to remember our promise as we came into this reality to bring love from spirit with us in everything we do. And they say that is what needs to be meditated on.
Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for EG and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who met someone they became friendly with and although the relationship was short-lived, this person made an impression in Anonymous’s life. They ask The Council to confirm their suspicion that they knew each other in other lives and if this is true, what was their relationship in these lives. Anonymous is also interested in whether they will reconnect with this person in this lifetime.
On a separate note Anonymous asks whether they were ever interested in herbs and healing in other lifetimes because they are drawn to this in their current lifetime and it feels familiar.
The Council says in the current lifetime it is the remembering of shared other lives that has brought you together for a short time like ships passing in the night.
The Council says in other lives you’ve been sisters, mother and child, a married couple, and peers who worked together, and they say to enjoy this familiar feeling you’ve identified with.
The Council says there’s a possibility you will reconnect with this person in the remainder of this lifetime as long as your life choices bring you in this direction.
The Council say Anonymous has dealt with herbs, oils, and mostly crystals in other lifetimes and they suggest Anonymous familiarize themselves with this. The Council also suggests Anonymous begin to meditate if they don’t already. This will connect them to a peacefulness and help them with the direction they want this lifetime to go in.
Listen to this brief 3-minute session with The Council on these questions to hear all of their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Linda, who asks a question about her health. She’s heard that her health is connected to her emotions and attitudes and we cause our own illness. And she asks if it’s possible to heal a throat tumor and what she can do besides changing her thoughts.
The Council sees that Linda is holding in many emotions and more expression of feelings is needed. There are many things she’s experienced that she’s holding in and hasn’t spoken of.
The Council explains Linda creates what she experiences in her life from her thoughts, her beliefs, and her attitude. Visualize what you desire. If you need health, then see yourself as healthy and practice feeling healthy. Your body listens to every thought you think. If you think of sickness your body will give you sickness. If you think over and over of experiencing wellness and stay in that vibration, what you experience has to change. Changing your attitude and thought is very important and is the foundation for experiencing wellness.
The Council says if Linda sits every day in a bubble of pink loving energy, asking herself what this feels like and experiences that she is well, her body will change and become well. When you look for disease you will find disease. When you look for wellness you will find wellness because that’s how the universe we’ve created works. What you look for you will find.
The Council says if Linda needs a way in addition to changing her thoughts to experience wellness, there is a great method that Cynthia and many of her friends have also used from the great prophet, Edgar Cayce.
Get Palma Christi Castor Oil and wool flannel that together make up the Edgar Cayce pack (www.baar.com). Put it on your throat and follow the directions in the recording. This oil aligns the cells in your body to who you are as a spiritual being. It teaches the cells how to be well. The Council suggests if Linda is looking for something physical to do, she can try this also.
Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all all their guidance for Linda and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post in inspired by a follow-up question from Vacha about what career she is best suited for based on her experience in her other lifetimes.
The Council suggests the best way to decide what career to choose in this lifetime is to do anything and determine how she feels about it. Do you love it? Does it make you feel good? There’s no one career Vacha planned to have in this lifetime.
What did you enjoy as a child? What do you truly love? What brings you peace? What makes time go by without you even realizing it? The Council is here to help her expand, but she won’t expand if we tell her what to do. She is still creating and there are lots of things that go into putting her life together. How to find her way is by loving what she does.
The Council says they’ll send Vacha support and loving energy to bring her to the right place. She’ll grow and have more confidence in herself as she finds her way. Ask herself the questions The Council suggests and meditate on the answers. Experiment and she will find her way.
Vacha also asks what kind of previous lifetimes she’s had and how they affect her in this lifetime? The Council says she’s been a dancer, she’s taught different religions, she’s been a caretaker, and she’s been a rebel. In this lifetime The Council gives Vacha a clue and says she wishes to experience peace. Look in this direction. Meditate on this and she’ll find answers.
Vacha says one of her spiritual leaders in India where she is living said her life would be very different after 50 years old and she’s looking for clarification on this. She also says after her recent abortion and leaving her abusive husband in the USA, she’s been reading about spirituality and feels like she’s growing spiritually.
The Council says Vacha’s life is changing now. It is sometimes said that women don’t blossom until they reach 60 years old. And The Council says if you believe that, then she’ll wait until she’s 60 to blossom. But she’s blossoming now. Look at what she’s creating. And if she’s not fond of what she’s creating, then create again. It is all there for her, The Council says.
Listen to our entire 9-minute session on Vacha’s questions to hear all their guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by some excellent questions from a reader named Marie about a healing technique called Reiki. Marie asks about Reiki’s validity, whether she’s really channeling divine energy when she performs Reiki, and whether the person receiving Reiki can receive the same energy just by meditating and visualizing the energy coming to them.
The Council says there’s a single great healing force. And because of the existence we’ve created on Earth, people are able to tune into this healing energy through many different paths, including Reiki, and we are drawn to the path we’ve used in other lifetimes or feels familiar.
The Council says when you believe you’re able to heal without any formal training it can be done. They say healing occurs by intention, by wanting the best for the person receiving the healing, seeing them whole and getting them to see themselves as whole and healed. Healing happens when our spirit decides to accept this energy.
The Council points out we are already healed and whole. They say what we’re going through creates the sickness because there’s something we need to learn from going through this, but as soon as we remember who we truly are as spiritual beings and decide to let the healing energy in, the wholeness is remembered and the healing occurs.
The Council says many people love the idea of going to school, but they say healing happens whether you are trained or not, because the healing is all around us. They recommend we enjoy the different healing modalities. When we feel the healing, know it’s always there for us and that we’ve decided to let the healing energy in.
In Reiki there are certain healing symbols that are used and Marie asks if they’re necessary. The Council says they aren’t necessary, but if they help you believe you are working with the healing energy and it helps the recipient feel this energy, by all means use them. They add that whatever it is that helps us connect to the idea we can help another, use it.
Marie finishes up by saying after she received Reiki training she felt the formality of the training was becoming obsolete and asks if this is the case. The Council says this is a belief. Believing the formality is necessary makes it necessary, but if you believe the formality isn’t necessary it becomes unnecessary.
The Council says Marie has done healing in other lifetimes and Reiki is how she’s connecting to this healing in this lifetime. If her training enables her to connect with something magical and powerful, they suggest she use the formality.
At the beginning of the session one of our cats began playing with a toy and making noise. When Bob got up to stop the noise, The Council said it’s a vibration of fun and happiness that should never be eliminated and to let the cats enjoy themselves. This is included in the recording below as, 1. “Prelude”. Listen to the entire session with The Council to hear all their guidance on healing for Marie and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by an interesting question from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, and is about one of our first posts back in 2010 titled Beginning to Channel a New Consciousness. In that post we describe some conversations with The Council on what appeared to be a different consciousness that Cynthia had been tuning into at that time during her channeling. What ImportantOrNotBlog wants to know is whether Cynthia has gained a better connection with this consciousness as time has passed.
First The Council makes clear that although this new vibration appears different from what we normally associate with as The Council, there isn’t any separation on a spiritual level. As human beings we tended to perceive this communication as coming from a consciousness that’s different from The Council, but they are clear this isn’t the case. The Council adds that at the time, what was felt was needed to expand Cynthia’s vibration and her ability to connect with other spirits.
The Council does say that from our human perspective Cynthia is able to channel other spirits if she wants to, but from The Council’s point of view she doesn’t currently want this, although she’s free to create it at any time. The Council does say because we are all one in spirit, they connect with the greater consciousness and although it comes from them, what Cynthia channels is more than what we imagine is the five spirit guides that we think of as making up The Council.
Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for ImportantOrNotBlog and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader who goes by the name, Anon. She says she contacted us last year when she was pregnant with her second child and she was unsure if it was what she wanted. She’s just given birth to a baby girl and says she loves her to pieces. Anon has also been let go from her recent employment and feels unsure where she’s going in her life.
The Council reminds Anon her old life without the new child and with her job has come to an end and she’s creating a new beginning. Sometimes when you don’t know where you’re going, your soul is putting your life together with the different options you thought of before you came into this reality. This is her situation now.
The Council advises Anon to just be and enjoy her life as it is right now rather than looking for another job right away. The direction her life will take will be shown to her in time. Enjoy her baby and in that joy her other answers come.
Anon says she has a huge phobia of being sick. She constantly worries about catching bugs and it takes the joy from parenting.
The Council says if she keeps focusing on sickness her thoughts will bring sickness to her. They see this fear coming from several lifetimes where there was a lot of sickness, but they can see it’s not in her pre-planning of this life. Her body is strong. When a child gets sick, that doesn’t mean she’ll get sick also.
She’s had the experience of sickness in other lives and doesn’t need to experience it this lifetime. She’s here to use her knowledge of sickness from these other lives to help family and friends move through it in this life. They say the only way she’d have problems with sickness now is if she continues to focus on this and stayed in this fear.
The Council sees a wonderful and creative life for Anon. They remind her she is the creator of this life and from what they see, she will be pleasantly surprised.
Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anon and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from Rob, who asks The Council if it’s possible to negotiate with our higher self to have a painless physical death.
The Council says, yes, this is quite possible. They say our thoughts are able to create everything. If it’s our desire to leave this reality pain-free, then it’s possible to do it.
Listen to our entire 2-minute session with The Council on this question to hear all their guidance for Rob and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by an interesting follow-up question from a reader who goes by the name EG. After EG read our post, Believing the Earth is Flat, and Connection With Spirit, where The Council says the Earth was actually flat because people believed it was flat, EG wonders if people fell off the edge of this flat Earth.
The Council says, yes. They say we are the creators of our reality and people created a reality where they actually fall off the flat Earth. They say if we believe something strong enough and we want to experience it, we’ll create this. They say this is the power of spirit. Anything is able to be created if you believe it.
We’d like to thank EG for their question, and for their consideration that the Earth was flat the way The Council says. We admit it’s difficult to imagine the Earth being flat because people believed it was flat. All we can do is remain open-minded about this idea and continue to think about it. Maybe more questions in the future will shed additional light on this.
Listen to our entire 4-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for EG and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a follow-up question from LearningSoulSite, who asks The Council which of two job opportunities in India will be better for her. One is for a startup IT company in the city where she is already located, and one is for a large IT company that wants her to move to Pune, India, which is a new city for her. LearningSoulSite says she doesn’t want to put herself in a more challenging situation than she’s already in.
The Council says LearningSoulSite has very cleverly created both of these job opportunities. They say the job that would require her to move is what’s wanted by her higher self. It will bring new opportunities, a new city, new friends, and to begin her life again.
They also say there’s no right or wrong answer here. If she’s in a place where she desires the security of remaining in the city where she currently is, this is fine. You will grow with this company.
If you choose the job opportunity that takes you to Pune and out of your familiar feeling and environment, you will be forced to grow and find new friends. If you feel you’re ready for this, that is the way to go.
The decision is yours. Whichever company you agree on, you will start your new life. The one that asks you to move is a giant jump in this reality; it is a lesson in trusting and believing in yourself. The other job opportunity that doesn’t require so much change, you will also grow there, but at a slower pace. Both companies will take you in the direction you need to go.
Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for LearningSoulSite, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a follow-up question from Michelle, who terminated a pregnancy last month because the timing wasn’t right for bringing another child into her family, but Michelle was having difficulty finding peace with this decision.
In our post to answer Michelle’s original question (Some Clarification on a Recent Abortion), The Council advised Michelle and her partner based on Michelle’s desire to possibly have this child when the timing is right. Now Michelle is asking what can be done of she and her partner decide not to have another child. She wants to know how she can release this spirit who is waiting to return to her in a future pregnancy. if there is one, and doesn’t want to “mess up” a plan that was made if she chooses not to get pregnant again.
The Council says there’s an understanding that if there’s a change of heart and another child isn’t desired, this is fine. They advise Michelle to send love to the soul who was on standby and let it know that at this point in your life what you had planned has taken a turn and it’s not necessary for it to come into her lifetime.
The soul will wait until Michelle definitely decides she doesn’t want another child. If she’s unsure, the soul will wait to see if it will be needed to fulfill the original agreement.
Listen to our full 4-minute session with The Council to receive all their guidance for Michelle and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Mariner2Mother, who asks The Council about the soul of a child from one of her early pregnancies where the child was aborted. A medium told her the soul of a child is with her in spirit and she wonders if it is this soul.
The Council says they don’t see the souls from earlier pregnancies around Mariner2Mother specifically. They say these souls have moved on, but they add that these souls will always be sending her support and love.
Mariner2Mother says later when she got married and tried to start a family she had a miscarriage and asks The Council if there was a soul involved in this pregnancy because the fertilized egg never developed. The Council says there was a soul associated with this pregnancy and there is always a soul associated with every pregnancy, even if the child isn’t born.
Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) on Mariner2Mother’s questions to receive all their guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Darla, who asks The Council about soul mates and soul families. Also Darla was told by a psychic that her mother in this lifetime was her mother-in-law in another lifetime, and her husband was her daughter in another lifetime, and she asks for any information about this.
The Council says they love questions about soul mates. So many humans are searching for their soul mate, but what they want us to know is that we have many soul mates. In some lives a soul mate can be a good friend, or a strong teacher, or your child. A soul mate isn’t necessarily just the romantic partner that many people are looking for. In a certain respect we are all soul mates to each other.
The Council says we have soul groups or soul families. People you find you’re at ease with are usually someone you’ve traveled with before and are in your soul group. Some groups are small, about 9 or 10 souls, and some groups are larger, containing perhaps 100 souls. We constantly travel with these groups, and yet we have the ability to change groups a lifetime at a time.
The Council does see that Darla’s mother was her mother-in-law at a time when they lived on a farm as America Indians. And her husband in this life was her daughter in a life where her daughter was an opera singer in Italy. The Council asks Darla if her husband has singing ability or is interested in music in this lifetime.
Listen to our short, but information-filled, 5-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance on soul mates and soul groups, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Mariette, who started a website around a year ago as a dream to empower others with flower essences, energy healing, and counseling. She’s not really happy in her full-time job and instead wants to work helping others, but she’s having trust issues.
The Council says trusting in herself is something she’s picked as a challenge and that she needs to believe more in herself and have the courage to move forward with what Mariette feels is her desire.
The Council says it’s always when our path in life is close to changing that our fear will come to the surface and that’s what’s currently sabotaging Mariette. Will she be able to move beyond this fear and go on to her desired career? Her higher self is planning ways to get her where she wants to go. To get through the void she’s experiencing she needs to focus on what she desires. This will bring her past her fears. The Council sees she’d be very successful at this if she tries.
The Council doesn’t see a need to pause at this time. While the fear is from many experiences Mariette has had in other lifetimes, they feel focusing on this wouldn’t be productive. Instead they recommend focusing on how beautiful her life will be when she’s doing what she desires.
The Council says there isn’t a reason why Mariette has to stay in a job she’s not happy with. They recommend taking the chance and leaving to fully focus on what she wants.
The Council suggests as she moves forward with this part of her life, trust her feelings about what flower essences she thinks a person would need, even if it’s not in the books she’s reading. This will increase Mariette’s intuition.
Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council on Mariette’s questions to fully appreciate all their guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Miyam who is past her first trimester of pregnancy and she says she’s tried to abort with herbs because she can’t afford a medical abortion. Miyam has tried speaking with the soul of the unborn child in the hope of convincing it to miscarry, and she asks The Council for advice on convincing this soul to terminate it’s pregnancy rather than be born.
The Council says the spirit of this unborn child understands that Miyam wants it to miscarry, but the reason Miyam got pregnant was for her to realize she must take more control of her life and move it forward in the direction she chooses. The Council advises Miyam not to expect a miscarriage in this pregnancy. They say she must make a decision whether to give birth to the child and raise it by herself, or be brave enough to make the decision to end her pregnancy.
Miyam says she doesn’t plan on being a mother any time soon, and The Council repeats that the child won’t magically go away. They advise her to then move forward an have the pregnancy terminated, but it must be done soon.
The Council suggest Miyam continue speaking to the child and feel the love it sends her so she can be strong enough to make the decision that she wants. They say if she chooses to abort, this is fine. It was part of the pre-planning. The lesson for Miyam in this is to answer the question, where is she going forward from this point?
The Council suggests finding a way not to live with the man she apparently doesn’t want to be with. Find a way to live on your own. Move toward these dreams. They say that is Miyam’s answer.
Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all the guidance for Miyam and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by follow-up questions from Vacha who has been in an abusive marriage and has moved back to India with her parents. This is Vacha’s second marriage and both husbands were physically abusive.
The Council asks Vacha if there’s any question in her mind that she did the right thing when she left her husband. They imagine if you’re in an abusive situation, you’d feel comfortable that you had the power and the knowledge how to get out of this relationship.
Vacha asks The Council if she has any karmic accounts with her two husbands, and The Council says this in not the case.
The Council asks Vacha if she sees a pattern in why she chose these two abusive marriages. These have been lessons about awareness. The signs of abuse were there before each marriage. What has Vacha learned from these relationships? The Council says if Vacha doesn’t start asking herself this question, she will bring another abusive relationship. She has created this situation so she would learn about awareness, self-worth, courage, and how to create what you want.
Vacha asks if The Council sees her in a good relationship in the future. And The Council says she must do the work they describe if she wants a good relationship. Let go of the fear of what she’s experienced and let go of the question if there’s someone better for her. Focus on herself and find within the strength to believe she deserves better. Visualize a better life. Think of the abusiveness as a learning lesson and then let it go.
Vacha asks if there’s a chance she planned to have these abusive relationships before coming into this world, and The Council says definitely.
The Council says Vacha needed to fail in these two marriages in order to see what she wanted to learn. And she’s right on track; there’s nothing wrong here.
Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Vacha and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Audrey, who appears to have some difficulty accepting The Council’s idea that what we believe creates the reality we experience. Audrey uses the example of the Earth being round instead of flat, which she appears to believe is an incontrovertible scientific fact. But interestingly The Council seems to suggest that when people believed the Earth was flat, their belief created a reality where the Earth was flat.
The Council says the Earth is made up of energy that is able to shift shapes with the thoughts we think about it. And they add that many people aren’t at the point where they believe this is possible. The Council says at one time the Earth was flat, but along came others who began to believe the Earth was round. And because of the strength of this belief they found a way to create proof of the Earth’s roundness.
At the time people thought the Earth was flat they also didn’t think the Earth revolved around the Sun, and The Council says these thoughts created that reality and the Earth didn’t rotate around the Sun at that time. As we grow and want to make life more interesting and challenging, our thoughts change, we reach for more, and we create more. The Council adds that how we perceive our universe will change again in the future.
The Council says science and facts depend on the beliefs of people. Once you accept a thought and it becomes part of your belief system, and more and more people accept that thought, your reality will change to create that thought and you will have that experience.
Audrey asks The Council how she can stop being so left-brained. And The Council recommends looking into topics that she doesn’t currently believe and ask herself if she’d like to experience this, and she will begin to create what she focuses on and desires.
Audrey says she wants to connect with spirit. And The Council reminds her she already is connected to spirit and she is spirit. She has only to ask her higher self for signs of who she truly is and how she can create. Let her higher self give her a sign that she’s the creator and she’s not just here mumbling through this life. And be open to how it comes. Her higher self will bring her what she asks for.
Audrey says she does many things like meditation and yoga, but she doesn’t seem to connect with spirit. The Council says these things are helpful, but the feeling of connection will come from within her. They recommend she picture within her heart a small flame, which is a small part of her as spirit. Watch this flame grow daily as she meditates on this. As the flame grows Audrey will become more aware of who she really is and she will feel more connected to the spirit she is.
The ideas in this post may be challenging at first, but listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Audrey and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Michelle who asks The Council about her recent abortion. She and her husband made the decision together to abort the child, but Michelle is having difficulty finding peace with her decision. She understands much of what we’ve posted on the subject of abortion, but feels she could still benefit from some additional clarification.
The Council says this pregnancy and abortion was pre-planned in spirit by all involved, including the spirit of the aborted child. At this time a greater feeling of love and togetherness is needed, and a focus on the relationship moving forward before Michelle and her partner are ready to have a child. At this time they aren’t where their higher selves planned them to be when giving birth.
The Council says if they didn’t abort this child there would have been a miscarriage. While there is happiness in this relationship, there is also the thought something is not quite right with the timing for a child.
Focus on creating the proper environment and a loving relationship. Speak to the spirit of the child that will come and tell them what is planned and invite the child back. Meditate, pray, or talk together about plans for the future with this child. All positive thoughts will bring this child in.
The purpose of this pregnancy and abortion at this time was to highlight was is needed in this relationship to bring a child into a loving environment and reassuring the spirit of this child what is planned. The Council believes the same spirit that was aborted will return.
Michelle says during and after both her earlier pregnancies with her two current children she was depressed and she was worried the depression would come back. Now she’s feeling depressed anyway. The Council says this depression must be changed with Michelle’s thoughts. Worrying about this coming back will bring it back. Michelle needs to practice changing her thoughts. Focus on the life they desire and bring love into this situation.
Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Michelle and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Trying To Learn. They ask what is the spiritual role of the abortion doctor and clinic staff.
The Council says for each individual it is different. Every abortion doctor and staff person does not have the same lesson. The Council says this applies to the women who are receiving the abortions as well. For each woman the decision to abort brings different lessons.
Trying To Learn asks if women regret their abortions does this have a negative impact on the doctor and staff of the abortion clinic. The Council says some doctors are affected by what they see going on around them. They feel good when the woman is thankful for the abortion, and they feel sad when they feel a woman is aborting because she feels she has no other choice. All lessons are different.
Trying To Learn asks about the role of the protesters outside the abortion clinic. The Council says each protester does this because they see it as their duty to save the lives of the unborn children, but each protester has their own thoughts and focus on how they handle every challenge in their life.
Trying To Learn asks if The Council can shed any spiritual light on the practice of abortions in countries where it is illegal. The Council says while each individual has their own challenge, they also say that in time this can change through beliefs and health systems that want to make things better. These countries will learn from what they see in other countries. The Council recommends sending light and love to the people in these countries and this will help these people grow and open their minds and hearts to a better way of handling unwanted pregnancies.
Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Trying To Learn and and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by follow up questions from a private phone session for a reader named Andrea, who was told her abortion last summer was pre-planned before she was born and the spirit of the child was waiting to return to her in a future pregnancy. The abortion was related to a past life where she died in an orphanage fire where she was taking care of the children, and she’s struggling to understand the relationship between these two events.
The Council says in this past life, not being able to save herself and the children from this fire, she died feeling guilty and with the belief she doesn’t deserve to have children around her. In her current lifetime she comes in wanting children, but the subconscious memory from the lifetime with the fire makes her believe she cannot take care of them.
Andrea must learn this is a different life from her life with the fire and now she has a chance to redo her experience with children and become a great parent or teacher. When she truly believes this she will have one or more children and there will be no more miscarriages or abortions.
Andrea’s abortion was the result of her subconscious belief she wasn’t worthy to give birth to a child and be around them. As she learns to focus on all the good things she’ll be able to create in a life with children and brings love into the current reality, she’ll be able to give birth to one or more children.
Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Andrea and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by follow-up questions from a reader named Wendy, who asks The Council if they see her doing the inner work they recommend and if she’s on the right path at the moment. And The Council replies that if she continues with this work and focuses more on the desires she wishes to create in this lifetime, they feel she’ll get there.
Wendy asks if she’s doing well with her son. And The Council asks Wendy what she thinks, because they always see us doing well, whether we consider we are doing well or not. You are teaching each other and learning, and you will find better ways as you grow.
Wendy says she struggles with anxiety and often wonders if she’ll get where she wants to go. And The Council says as she focuses more on her desires and as she appreciates the positive changes she sees happening, she’ll experience less anxiety.
Wendy is concerned she may move beyond the relationships she has now with the people she loves so much. And The Council says everyone is a spirit and grows at their own pace. Even if she goes beyond these people, she’ll help them move forward with her energy and her love, even if they aren’t on the same path as her.
Wendy wonders whether time is a factor in whether the soul she aborted will return to her. And The Council says her beliefs and thoughts are what determines if the soul will return to her. There is a pre-birth agreement with this soul, but if she believes something can interfere with letting this happen, she can create that instead.
Wendy asks how she can keep her negative and fearful thoughts away so she can manifest the joy, love, and success we all deserve. And The Council asks her to pay attention to her feelings. Her feelings are 100% more correct than when she tries to figure out the answer with her brain and will tell her the direction she wants to go.
The Council sees Wendy able to change her life and create the life she desires.
Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Wendy and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by follow-up questions from a reader named Vacha, who’s having difficulties with her abusive second husband and she wonders if her spirit pre-birth planned for her to end up in abusive marriages.
The Council begins by advising Vacha to change her thought that she ends up in abusive relationships because as she holds onto this thought and feeling she will continue to create this in her life. Now she knows this is something she doesn’t want and she is able to recreate her life going forward by beginning to picture what she wishes to create now.
Vacha regrets not ending up with a loving companion and feels suicidal sometimes, but then she thinks of her son and that keeps her going. The Council says she’s got much to learn with her child and asks why she’d think of cutting this lifetime short when there’s so much goodness that can be experienced as she creates it moving forward.
Vacha asks if The Council can see happiness for her in a marriage and a career if she move back to India. The Council says it’s up to her, but they see her having a much different and happy life. They see many options opening up for her as she changes her thoughts, focus, and beliefs.
There is much joy that can come to her. She doesn’t need to worry how this will happen. The energy she creates will bring these opportunities to her when she understands why she needed to experience these difficulties which aren’t needed any longer. She is able to move forward and experience the joy she’s looking for.
The Council says to find a way for Vacha to look for and create love in her thoughts. Find the light within herself that’s her higher self and imagine love pouring out to every part of her and around her. And as this love goes out it will attract similar energies of love.
Listen to the recording of our 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear their guidance for Vacha’s and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
Vacha has posted two previous questions. You can read her first question here and our answer to it, and her second question here and our answer to that question. In addition, Vacha has posted another question after we did our current session with The Council, but before we posted their response. In her last questions she says she left her husband and moved back to India. You can read her last question here.
This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Tracey who thanks us for our post, Are All Abortions Pre-planned in Spirit Before Birth?, and she asks if all miscarriages are also pre-planned in spirit before we are born? After Tracey had her first child she’s had three miscarriages, but she wants another child very badly. She asks The Council if there are spiritual lessons she needs to learn before she’ll be able to deliver another child, or is she only meant to have one child in this lifetime.
The Council begins by saying that like all abortions, miscarriages are also pre-planned in spirit. And they go on to say as you hold the feeling of what you desire in this lifetime, at any time you can change what’s been pre-planned in spirit. Your higher self is able to contact the higher selves of the people involved and change what you originally pre-planned. Most of the time what you pre-plan will be carried out, but you can recreate your life at any time in this lifetime.
The Council says Tracey pre-planned to have this second child, but she has to focus on this and let go of the doubts that she can have another child. Tracey’s miscarriages were planned so that this desire would become stronger and that would be her focus.
Tracey wanted to experience feeling she didn’t deserve to have another child. She wanted to experience feeling too sick to have another child. She wanted to experience feeling unable to have a child come to full term and have a beautiful life with her. And then at the correct moment she wants to realize she is the creator of her life and she is able to change these feelings to what she desires.
The Council says it was the same soul that miscarried three times and they add that this soul will return to Tracey again in a pregnancy and when she’s ready she will have this child. Because Tracey and this spirit have known each other before there is a strong desire from both souls to have another lifetime together and focus on kindness.
The Council asks Tracey to meditate on this spirit who wants to come to her again and be in this lifetime with her. Picture the soul of this child sending Tracey love and support so they can be together again. As she holds this focus, that is a way to create this in her life.
Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Tracey and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by comments and questions from a reader named Isobel who begins by thanking The Council for their post on Beth’s Story: A Spiritual Perspective and how she doesn’t believe the articles she’s read about women who abort a child and pay for this lifetime after lifetime.
The Council says in spirit, when there are lessons we wish to learn before we come into a particular lifetime, and we don’t quite learn these lessons in that lifetime, we can choose to repeat these lessons in additional lifetimes until we’re sure of the love that exists between all of the parties involved. There is no payment or karma involved that a woman must repeat her abortion lifetime after lifetime. If an abortion is experienced, it is by the loving choice of the spirit to see the experience differently until there is complete love and understanding of that process as a human being.
Isobel recently terminated a pregnancy and wants to know if it was the spirit of a girl she miscarried when she was much younger. The Council says the spirit of this child was known from other lifetimes, but it wasn’t the soul of the child she miscarried.
The Council says this abortion was planned in spirit to learn more about abortion and the process of agreement between the child, the father, herself, and anyone else involved, and then to quickly let go of these feelings and move forward. The Council asks Isobel to meditate on her desire in spirit to move forward and not linger any longer than necessary on the abortion.
Isobel asks if the spirit of the aborted child is likely to return to her in a future pregnancy. And The Council says there’s a possibility she’ll get pregnant again with this partner, but the soul will be a different soul that she knows from another lifetime; not the soul she aborted in this lifetime.
Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Isobel and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Kate who says she has no idea what her purpose on Earth is, which causes her much anxiety. She can’t seem to relax and enjoy being here.
The Council says Kate needs to meditate and needs to perform some grounding exercises to bring her more into this reality. Any meditation will do. Walking outside on grass or dirt in her bare feet will help her ground and pull in the energy of the Earth. Dancing will also help ground her.
Kate says she’s concerned about her future because she believes she’s unable to escape her bad habits and faults when it comes to work situations. The Council says there are never any bad choices, just choices that will bring you quickly to where you want to go, or choices that will take you a longer roundabout route.
The Council asks Kate what she’s learning? If she’s feeling stuck, what would make her feel unstuck? The Council recommends watching other people live their lives, seeing how this feels to her, and deciding what she feels she would like for herself.
When Kate says she sees the possibilities in life, but doesn’t have the courage or self-discipline to pursue them, The Council points out this is a choice that Kate is making. And as long as she believes she doesn’t have the discipline to pursue these possibilities, that is what she’ll keep creating in her life. Her thoughts and beliefs are creating what she brings into her life.
The Council says of course Kate has the courage and ability to change her life and discover what she wants because she is more spirit than she knows, with limitless power, understanding, and love to create what she wants. With meditation her beliefs will begin to change, the courage to try many things will come, and the feeling of being stuck will gradually decrease.
In past lives Kate’s desires were taken away and it’s difficult in this life to believe there aren’t authority figures that will put her down. But that was then and this is now, and she’s here to see how much she can create and take her life in the direction she wants. Meditation will give her clarity. She will feel the answers more than think them. And she will grow and know which direction she wishes to take her life.
Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council to hear all their answers for Kate and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Diana who asks The Council for insight into her 6 month old relationship with her male partner. She’s 42 years old and wants to settle down, but she’s torn about whether to continue this relationship. On one hand they have a deep connection and compatibility on many levels. On the other hand Diana finds her partner’s struggle to cope with the daily practicalities of life quite unsettling. The thought of ending this relationship feels almost unbearable, but she feels stuck with moving forward in the relationship.
The Council suggests Diana look at all the things to be grateful for with her partner. The relationship is not enough for her because she focuses on his shortcomings. Start focusing on things in the relationship that bring her joy.
As Diana begins to appreciate this relationship, The Council asks her to look at what she’s doing to help her partner. Relationships come together as an opportunity to show love to each other, show each other how to grow, and how to transform their challenges. When Diana feels her partner isn’t making good life choices, rather than blame him she can speak with him about other choices and gently show him the way. The Council sees that over time the circumstances of this relationship can improve.
The Council recommends if Diane doesn’t want to move forward with marriage or living together, move forward on how she views these activities and with the thought of helping her partner. If she can take these steps, the relationship will become more of what she wants.
The Council says looking for her partner to improve to make her feel better is not the answer. As Diana begins to appreciate this relationship and sees her partner change, there will be a softening within her and she will allow herself to see what she wants to change within herself.
The Council feels that while the choice to leave this relationship is always Diana’s, they see at this time there is no reason to leave. There is a lot that can be changed and much more that can be appreciated about each other that will help the relationship grow and become more of what she desires.
Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all the guidance for Diana and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the name Mangojuice13, who previously asked questions about her abortion. Mangojuice13 points out in her current comment that in several of our posts The Council has said abortions are always pre-planned, but in a previous post answering Mangojuice13’s questions we wrote that all abortions aren’t pre-planned, and she asks us to explain this apparent discrepancy.
In our session to answer Mangojuice’s current questions The Council says when a woman becomes pregnant this is pre-planned and there are basically three options concerning abortion and it’s pre-planning in spirit. The first option is the desire to experience an abortion in this lifetime and The Council says this is definitely pre-planned in spirit. The second option is the desire to have the baby, in which case this is also pre-planned. The third option is to become pregnant, but to pre-plan the option to abort the child or have the child. In this case there is an agreement in spirit by all parties concerned to wait and see what the circumstances are at the time of the pregnancy and to make the decision at that time.
Mangojuice13 asks The Council if the soul of the child she aborted will return to her in a future pregnancy or will it be a different soul? And The Council says what they see is this soul moving on, and if there’s another pregnancy it will be a different soul.
Mangojuice13 asks The Council what the soul she aborted is currently doing. And The Council says going to school, planning another lifetime, and helping others in our lifetime. They say there are many things going on at one time for spirits in the spirit world.
Mangojuice13 asks The Council if her aborted child was going to be a male or a female? And The Council says there wasn’t a decision made by this soul regarding it’s gender. When Bob expressed confusion about this The Council said in this particular case the soul did not have plans to be borne and didn’t make the decision whether it would be a male or a female. They said usually the decision is made by three months into the pregnancy, but they have seen circumstances where this isn’t the case and they say it’s up to the soul that’s being born.
Lastly Mangojuice13 asks The Council how many children they see her having in this lifetime. And The Council says at this particular time they see one child, but they add that it’s possible for Mangojuice13, depending on her desire, to recreate this and have less or more children. Bob asks if there’s a preference for a male or female child and The Council says it seems like there’s a preference for a male at this time.
Listen to our entire 12-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Mangojuice13 and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Kelly who has several questions for The Council. First she asks about her 7-year old boy who has a physical tick disorder because Kelly and her son’s father (who she’s apparently separated from) have extremely different religious views – he’s a Jehovah’s Witness and she believes in magic.
The Council suggests keeping calmness around her son at this time and giving him more attention. He needs stability that he’s not feeling right now. Give him a peaceful environment and show him love. And it is very important to teach him about the many different religions in this world and experience their different beliefs. This is something he’ll use later in life.
Kelly had a miscarriage recently and she asks why, and if she’ll have another child. The Council says it was agreed upon in spirit if she, her partner, or her child had a change of heart about this pregnancy it would be acceptable to end it. In this case the soul of the child decided it wasn’t able to learn what it needed to learn by coming into Kelly’s life and decided to miscarry. And The Council says they do see another child is possible.
Kelly has had dreams about having a child and she asks how important they are. The Council says sometimes a dream has pieces of information about problems during your day. And sometimes when you have a dream you cannot forget and is crystal clear to you day after day as if you’re currently experiencing it, there is a very important message in that dream, and as you give this dream more attention you will learn what it’s trying to show you.
And Kelly asks about the man she’s currently involved with and whether she should give up her professional plans for travel because of her partner’s jealously. The Council suggests reviewing this relationship and deciding whether Kelly is truly happy in it or not. If she thinks they have the patience for each other, keep focusing on the happiness they can experience. And when the doubt comes, acknowledge it and refocus on how you’d like your life to be. Or does she prefer the freedom of traveling, learning, and perhaps bringing someone else into her life. Only she can make this decision.
Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council on Kelly’s questions to receive all their guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a 39 year old female reader named Eylem in Istanbul, Turkey, who has become pregnant twice in the last four months from the same man. She terminated the first pregnancy because she just met her boyfriend, started a new job, and wasn’t ready to have a child with this partner yet.
Two months after the termination of the first pregnancy Eylem’s relationship with her boyfriend has gone down hill and she was shocked to find she’s become pregnant again. She has decided to terminate this second pregnancy and not tell her boyfriend about it since they just decided to separate. Eylem thinks her decision to leave her partner is good for her and she asks The Council for their opinion.
The Council feels Eylem has made a wise choice to leave her partner. This will free her up to have a relationship with someone who shares her desires and there would be peace, love, and communication, which is important to her.
Eylem asks The Council why she got pregnant a second time. The Council says the soul came to help her realize the life she’s living now isn’t the life she wants and she doesn’t want to be with her partner any longer and raise a child with him. And they encourage Eylem to move forward in the direction of finding a new partner who wants what she wants.
Listen to the recording of our entire 8-minute session with The Council on Eylem’s questions to receive their full guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Mary who feels like the professional life she thought she would have isn’t happening. She’s happier now than when she thought her professional life was going according to plan, but she feels like she’s failing to do something that she imagined she was destined for.
The Council says in this lifetime what Mary wants is to just be – no pressure, no crazy deadlines, no living a life that’s not enjoyed.
By relaxing into the joyousness she experiences, she’s teaching the people around her about happiness. She will connect on a higher vibrational level to who she truly is as a spiritual being. She is doing exactly what she’s meant to be doing, even though it may feel otherwise. Just relax into this joyous life that only she has created for herself.
Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) on Mary’s question to hear all their guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by several follow-up questions from a reader named Carolyne on our post about whether her 3 previous abortions were the same spirit.
First Carolyne asks if everything that’s happening to her is pre-planned or happening by chance. The Council says particularly the fun things and the difficult things are pre-planned to help her with the lessons she wished to learn. When Bob asked if some things aren’t pre-planned but are decided in the moment, The Council replied that the subjects Carolyne is asking about are all pre-planned by her as a spiritual being.
Carolyne says she’s in a relationship that others think is wrong for her. And The Council says the way to tell if a relationship is right for you is if you find happiness and growth, and feel love for yourself and your partner.
Carolyne asks the reasons behind her 3 terminated pregnancies because she doesn’t want to repeat what she considers these mistakes again. The Council sees this comes from another lifetime of great struggle and poverty in China where she had 7 children. In her current lifetime they recommend Carolyne look carefully at whether she desires to have children or the freedom of not having children, and they emphasize there is no right or wrong path.
Carolyne asks how she can keep from terminating a pregnancy again. And The Council suggests Carolyne think about what she really wants in her life and take the steps to change this.
Carolyne asks if the spirits she aborted are sad for cutting their lives short. And The Council replies, of course not. These spirits recruited themselves to play this part for her. There is nothing to forgive. There were no wrong moves. These spirits will only wish Carolyne love.
Listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council to answer Carolyne’s questions and to receive all their guidance for her and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a long-time reader named Jan who now asks The Council about how her friend, William, is able to remotely view places and activities that people like Jan visit in the past, present, and future, and how they can best use this skill for the benefit of humanity.
The Council says when you are able to do remote viewing, you are very connected to your higher spiritual self. They say because we are all one, in a spiritual sense, someone who is able to view remotely is theoretically able to know anything about anyone, anywhere.
The Council says remote viewing works as we become more than our human selves. With the belief in remote viewing and by trying to accomplish this, you open up part of yourself that’s ready to see what you choose to view remotely. Because we are all connected and all one, when you view remotely you are really looking at an expanded version of yourself that includes others you are connected to.
Many people, just by meditation, are able to view remotely. The first part is believing you are able to do it, and then having the patience to try it and set yourself free to experience it.
The Council tells Jan that she and Will can use this ability to help others by viewing their bodies for health information. They are also able to communicate with animals and plants. You can go into the future and past lives to see what you have come through. You can look at different lives that different parts of you are experiencing now. The Council says there is no limit to what you are able to do.
The Council says in each area the focus should always be to place the vibration of love, peace, and unity for our whole planet. And as you do this you unite everyone in spirit, and it is gradually experienced in the human body. Even in areas where there is distress and war, you are able to remotely view this and send light and prayer. The Council says to believe in the information you get and you will always lead people in the direction where help will be found.
Listen to the entire 9-minute session with The Council on remote viewing to hear all their guidance for Jan and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Frankie who’s been in several relationships with men who haven’t been willing to make the commitment she desires. The Council asks if Frankie understands her partner doesn’t want a commitment, does she choose to stay in these relationships anyway? They feel there’s a part of Frankie that holds onto these relationships, even when she knows they’re not going in the direction she’d like.
Frankie is currently friends with a fellow she fell in love with several years ago, but the romantic part of the relationship didn’t work out. This fellow is currently in a relationship with a woman he intends to marry, and Frankie’s hurt by this because her friend is showing a commitment to his girlfriend that he never showed her.
The Council says coming into this lifetime Frankie wanted to know what was going on around her, and going forward in her relationships they recommend being aware if they’re what she wants. In this lifetime Frankie wants independence, awareness, and strength to be on her own. And this is one reason she hasn’t experienced a long-term commitment.
When Frankie is able to be on her own and love herself, she’ll have the relationship she’s looking for. It’s good for her to continue with relationships, but it’s good for her to be aware if they’re going in the direction she desires. And instead of hoping a relationship will work out, she wants to become aware of what’s going on and not settle for a relationship that isn’t exactly what she wants. She wants to be okay with moving on from a relationship she doesn’t want and being by herself for a while. And as she becomes more okay with herself, and loving herself, and knowing there’s more out there, she’ll pull in the relationship she desires.
Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear The Council’s answer to what Frankie wants to know about love, why she still feels a connection to her friend, and how she can break this pattern of getting involved with men that don’t want a long-term romantic relationship. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Jim, who says he’s struggled with obsessive-compulsive disorder most of his life and asks The Council how he can have less worry and anxiety in his life.
The Council explains that when you know who you truly are, there is nothing to worry about. They ask if Jim understands he is a spiritual being in a human body, and they explain that when he takes his mind away from worry and anxiety and changes the focus of his thoughts to better feeling ones, his life will begin to change for the better. What Jim chooses to focus on will bring him peace of mind.
The Council encourages Jim to have more hope, focus on peacefulness, love, gratitude, the positive aspects of what’s going on, and looking for miracles happening in his life. Concentrate on the support he would get from spirits in human form and in the spiritual world. When Jim can begin thinking about these things his life will improve.
Jim also says he’s struggled with finding his true purpose in this lifetime. The Council says one of the purposes he wants to experience is joy and to have child-like experiences throughout his lifetime, even as an adult. They suggest Jim have a career around children to hear their laughter and join in with them. That is what he wanted to experience.
The Council’s parting advice to Jim is to do the work and he will succeed. Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Jim and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Tracey who asks The Council, after reading our post about Beth’s abortions, if the soul of the child she recently miscarried was either the same soul she aborted many years ago, or if it was the soul of her present son, because he’s always so insecure when he’s not with Tracey.
The Council doesn’t see that either of these souls was the soul she recently miscarried. The say it was a soul who wanted the experience of being in a human body, but not having to complete an entire lifetime. In the rest of this session The Council gives Tracey advice on her son.
The Council says Tracey’s son will be working through many abandonment issues in this lifetime and they suggest showing him a lot of patience, love, and reassurance. When he was in spirit he realized there were some fears he wanted to experience and then experience the strength within the fear when he’s given love.
The Council also sees Tracey’s son will need a lot of confidence in this lifetime and they suggest giving him a lot of praise and following through on things Tracey says she will do concerning her son.
The Council suggest Tracey buy her son children’s books on angels and spirits, and books on how we are here in this lifetime always looking for love and showing love. And they say a good place to start is books by the spiritual healer, Louise Hay.
Tracey’s son wanted to experience courage, independence, and fearlessness in this lifetime and give these emotions to others. He wants to experience the fears first, have the reassurance from Tracey, and then start to believe in these assurances and knowing he is safe. Tracey should always point out to her son that whatever he’s afraid of, there is love in it, and to search for this love with him.
Listen to the entire 7-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Tracey, her son, and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This is an interesting post inspired by a reader named Audrey who has some questions for The Council about her boyfriend Joe’s talking in his sleep. Audrey says she started a conversation with Joe as he slept one night and asked what he was talking about. He replied, Dog Star, and said it’s where all dogs are, and people go there to get their dogs. The Council says it’s wonderful that Joe has created this Dog Star in his reality and that part of Joe’s spirit was willing to share this with Audrey.
Audrey then asks Joe who she’s talking to and he replied, Joe, not Joe-person. Audrey asks what’s the difference between the two and The Council replied, there is Joe the personality in the reality Joe and Audrey share; there are Joes with personalities from other realities because there are many realities being lived by different parts of Joe at the same time; and there is a part of Joe connecting to his spiritual higher self.
The Council comments that it was very loving of Joe that he was willing to share this experience with Audrey, even if it wasn’t conscious. They advise Audrey to hold onto this memory, talk to Joe about it, and see what she’s able to learn about different realities and about creating them. And they recommend reading books by Jerry and Esther Hicks on what their spirit guide, Abraham, says about how we create.
The Council says many people believe if you are alive now in your current reality, that’s all there is. But they say you are living in many, many realities. You send different pieces of yourself into realities you wish to create.
We like Audrey’s question because we’re not often asked about our ability in spirit to create other realities at the same time we are experiencing our reality here on Earth. We think there’s much to be learned about this.
Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear everything they have to say about our ability to create other realities, and let us know what you think.
This post in inspired by an anonymous reader who’s had 3 abortions and asks The Council if all 3 pregnancies were the same spirit? Anonymous also says she’s ready for a baby and she asks if the same spirit will come back to be her child?
The Council says each of Anonymous’s previous pregnancies were 3 different spirits that quickly came in knowing their lives wouldn’t continue. They ask her to look at this pattern of getting pregnant and then terminating these pregnancies, which they add is her choice and is fine. But The Council suggests if Anonymous were to become pregnant again given a similar mindset as her earlier pregnancies, she would most likely terminate this new pregnancy also.
The Council asks Anonymous if she’s happy with her life and would she be content bringing a child into that life. Now is the time to begin changing her life so that if there’s a pregnancy, she’ll be able to give birth to the child. The key is to look at her life.
Anonymous wants to learn more about herself. The clarity she seeks will come when she looks at her life and questions her responses and what she is creating for herself. As she reviews her life, her learning will bring her clarity, and then perhaps there will be an opportunity to have a child.
Listen to the entire 6-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Anonymous, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Linda about a distant energy healing she received recently to clear her aura of negativity. Since the healing took place she’s felt down, not much joy, and seems to have lost her flow in life. She asks The Council if these feelings will pass, or is there something she can do to re-establish her joy and get unstuck from where she finds herself?
The Council begins by pointing out the ability to heal herself lies within Linda rather than within an external healer. Sometimes when you go to another person for a healing, that person will send you healing energy and your body and spirit will use this energy in the way that’s best for you. What The Council sees is that this healing stirred up a lot of Linda’s emotions and instead of getting the full clearing she wanted, these emotions have been brought up so she can learn to heal them herself.
The Council suggests meditation, prayer, working with crystals, and using her healing inner light. See the energy go into and around her body and lift out what needs to be removed.
Another exercise Linda can do is one she also used in a lifetime as an American Indian where she would stand on a hilltop on a windy day, raising her arms, and ask the Wind God to blow through her and remove whatever is negative or she doesn’t need.
The Council says the reason these emotions were stirred up is to get her to know she has the power to heal herself. And they add that the person Linda chose to do this energy healing did exactly what was necessary, with love, to push her forward in finding her true self.
Listen to the entire 6-minute session we did with The Council (below) on Linda’s questions to hear all their guidance for Linda and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Sarah who feels like after being drawn to experiences like lucid dreaming, meditation, and connection with her spiritual self, her life has come to a standstill recently and she asks The Council how to navigate through this period of feeling stuck.
The Council says what Sarah is experiencing is what some people call the void. She will feel stuck and cut off, but while she’s in what she calls this stuck place she should review what she’s learned, go deeper into it, and use it in her everyday life.
While Sarah is in this stuck place her spirit is very busy planning the next phase of her life. She is figuring out on a deeper level her path and the direction she wants to go, who she wants to pull into her life, where she wants to live, and what she wants to experience. The Council says Sarah is in a very good place and recommends she have more understanding with people she brings into her life.
Sarah asks how she can connect more deeply with herself and manifest more quickly. And The Council recommends sitting in a quiet place and figuring out how she can know her spirit loves her personality self, but without using any words, just feeling this love in her heart. This will eventually help her feel more connected.
Sarah asks what lessons she’s here to learn. And The Council says her lessons now are to be independent, be loving to herself, and push forward on her path of spiritual growth. And they say on this path she will bring in the right people to help her along her way. Do not look for approval from others. Approve of yourself and you will see yourself move forward.
Sarah asks what she’s struggled with in past lives. And The Council says the past life that’s affecting this life is one of slavery where she suffered without having the freedom to go and choose what she wanted, and feeling very oppressed. In her current lifetime she wants to spread her wings, learn more, be independent, and not need approval from others.
Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) on Sarah’s questions to gain a deeper appreciate for The Council’s guidance for Sarah and the rest of us when we feel stuck in the void.
This post is inspired by a follow-up question from Jolanda, who’s been married to an abusive man for four years. For background on Jolanda’s situation you may want to refer to our earlier posts: Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship, Follow-up Questions on Leaving an Abusive Relationship, and Help Leaving an Abusive Husband.
In her comment that inspired this current post Jolanda asks if The Council can explain the strong feelings of attachment, obligation, and protection she has toward her abusive husband. And The Council says it comes from a lifetime in the 1400s where her husband was her unruly son. The feelings of protection she has in this lifetime are from the memory of wanting to protect her child in that lifetime.
In this other lifetime Jolanda believed more in herself and her natural spiritual powers, but there were many people in this time who were being punished for being witches. Because her son (her husband in her current life) was so difficult he decided to report Jolanda as a witch, and her life was ended because of this.
In pre-planning their current lifetime together Jolanda’s husband wanted to be with her as an adult, to be more open to her spiritual beliefs, and to show her more caring. Their pre-birth plan was to give both of them the opportunity for a good and loving life together. But the husband still carries feelings from this other lifetime of wanting to punish Jolanda, and he hasn’t gotten to the stage where he can ask himself why he treats her the way he does.
Jolanda asks The Council if she and her husband will be able to resolve these powerful issues from this other lifetime. And The Council says at this time, where they see her husband’s energy heading, they do not see a change coming any time soon. Although they add the husband is still able to create opportunities to change and see things differently if he desires.
Even though these feelings from this other lifetime were strong, so was the desire for change. When they returned to spirit and looked at that life, they were willing to give each other the chance to change it in this lifetime, to bring love into the situation and make this a life of joy.
Jolanda asks The Council if they see her finding true happiness. She says her life has been a relationship battleground until now and she would like to experience the peace, harmony, and true love she feels she deserves. The Council advises Jolanda to find the love she is looking for within herself. She is able to find true happiness by leaving the relationship and finding another partner. Or she can stay in this relationship, but The Council advises her to see it differently because of this new information she has now.
She can choose one path and if it doesn’t work she can choose another. But always begin by feeling the love for yourself and knowing if this relationship doesn’t work out, you both went into it to give each other that opportunity. And they add there’s nothing wrong with that.
Listen to the entire 11-minute session we had with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Jolanda and the rest of us, and tell us what you think.
This post is inspired by a comment from Diana, who’s experiencing an unplanned pregnancy at almost 42 years old, but is contemplating an abortion for financial reasons. She says she’d like to have a family, but she’s afraid of a life of struggle and poverty with a young child, and she asks The Council for any insight that might help her.
The Council says if Diana wants a family in this particular lifetime, this is her chance. And they tell her this so that later on she doesn’t regret giving up this opportunity. But at the same time The Council advises Diana there’s absolutely nothing wrong with choosing not to bring a child into a life where poverty might be the only option if this is her choice.
The Council says they see the soul of this child has agreed to come to Diana this one time only. It isn’t likely to return. They say whether she chooses to abort the pregnancy or not, either way will be the correct choice. And they say the soul of this child knows it’s here for Diana to either abort it, or if she chooses to bring it into this lifetime, it has things it would like to experience. The choice is Diana’s, and each path will have lessons and experiences for her.
The Council says the poverty is something that her and her partner chose to experience in this lifetime. Staying with this partner it’s good to think where their path can go now and then begin to create the change they would like to have. This is something The Council recommends whether they decide to have this child or not. The inner work they do will bring them to outer experiences that will help them change. And The Council says if they decide to have this child, there will be time during the pregnancy to experience these changes.
The Council says no matter what they teach, and how they show us there are many paths in front of us, the choice is always ours. No one can make the choices for us. Go in the direction of love and you’ll see your answers come to you. Let go of fear. As you raise your vibration you will see the changes you wish, the understanding you need, and the clarity to see what’s going on.
Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Diana and the rest of us.
This is an interesting post inspired by a question from a reader named Susan who goes by the blog handle, Mariner2Mother. She says her 13-year old son is extremely sensitive to energy, but he experiences a lot of anxiety and she asks what her son’s pre-birth plans were around this anxiety.
The Council sees Susan’s son is very sensitive to energy and that he planned to experience this anxiety so he could learn to overcome it. This anxiety comes from another lifetime where many people would seek his advice and his healing abilities, but there were others that were afraid of what he could do and they killed him.
Because he enjoyed helping many people in this other lifetime and that life was cut short, he created similar experiences in this lifetime to learn from them, but as a child he’s doesn’t understand what’s happening yet.
The Council says Susan and her son will gain a deeper understanding of what he’s going through if they study meditation, yoga, and energy work. She should talk to him about spirits and ask him to write down his feelings and what he thinks is going on. In another lifetime he was an accomplished writer and The Council says writing will help him now.
Susan mentions she’s now home schooling her son because he was so anxious and overwhelmed in Middle School last year, and The Council says this was a very good decision.
Susan says she’s looking for reassurance her son will grow up and things won’t always be as difficult for him as they seem right now. And The Council asks Susan to focus on her son being fine in the present instead of the future when he grows up. Her son needs to know right now he’s fine and that he’s working on what he wishes to experience in this lifetime.
The Council adds Susan is here to help her son see how wonderful it is that his life is on track with what he planned to experience, and he’s bringing in this anxiety to experience turning it around. And he can ask on a daily basis for signs of this from spirit and The Council says they’ll hear him and help.
Listen to this very interesting 10-minute session with The Council (below) for all their guidance for Susan, her son, and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions about the spiritual life of animals and their caretakers from someone who goes by the name, Trying To Learn. Trying begins by asking if animals have souls? And The Council replies, of course, and so does a blade of grass, or a tree, or a flower.
Next Trying asks if animals review their life the way humans do when they pass on to spirit. And The Council says human beings are the only souls that review their lives. An animal only knows what it has experienced and learns from feeling, not from thought. When animals return to spirit they can choose to play with the other souls there or return to a loved one who’s still in human form. And the purpose of each animal is to experience love.
Trying To Learn asks if there are spirits to care for the animals as they pass over to spirit. And The Council says as animals pass over, while the situation may look horrible from a human point of view, the animals know how to make this transition and always feel spirit’s love for them and love for the people around them.
The Council says animals are here to bring love into this incarnation and they try to teach the humans around them about compassion and love.
Trying asks if animals reincarnate as the same animal or a different animal. And The Council answers that it’s with their feelings they choose whether to come back as the same animal, a different animal, or maybe to evolve into a human.
The Council points out how animals have evolved over the years. They say you would never put a dog and a cat together or a cat and a bird. But we see pictures of a dog hugging a cat or a cat loving a bird, and each time an animal enters our reality they bring more love with them.
The Council says there are brave human souls that agree to play the part of an animal abuser to show other humans the way not to be. They are here to wake everyone else up to finding better ways to do everything in the vibration of love.
Trying brings up the point that vegetarians are often pro-choice when it comes to abortion. They don’t understand how someone can choose not eat meat, but be willing to end the life of a soul. They ask if there’s a relationship here or if these examples are different categories. And The Council replies this is two different categories: one involving a choice what to eat and on involving a choice whether to have a child or to abort it.
In their closing The Council advises all of us to go in the direction of love we’ll quickly see the changes we desire and the answers will come to us.
Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council (below) on Trying To Learns questions about the spiritual life of animals to receive their full guidance, and let us know what you think.
