How Can We Feel More Connected to Our Spirit?

This post is based on a session with The Council on Saturday, July 17, 2010 that addresses the following subjects:

  • Our connection to spirit is not broken when we’re born in a physical body.
  • Feeling our connection with spirit.
  • Using love and other good-feeling emotions to create what we desire.
  • The power of a smile.

True or False: Birth Causes a Separation from Spirit

Many who are interested in enlightenment and connecting with spirit think that when we leave our true home in spirit to be born into physical bodies that a separation from spirit occurs. The Council says when we think of spirit as being “up there,” “on the other side,” “in heaven,” “in another dimension,” or somewhere other than within us, we basically believe there is a separation from spirit.

Does God Exist?

This is a follow up to previous post titled: Believing in a Loving and Benevolent God When Life Sucks. Barry P. read that post and passed along the following anecdote about believing in God. I found it thought provoking and worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it.

The Young Man & The Barber

A young man, while getting a haircut and his beard trimmed, was deep in conversation with his barber. The conversation turned to the subject of God and the barber proclaimed, “I don’t believe God exists.”

“What makes you so sure,” asked the young man?

The barber walked to the window and replied, “All you have to do is look out in the street to realize God doesn’t exist. If God existed, there wouldn’t be any sickness, or pain, or suffering. I can’t imagine a God that would allow these things.”

The young man was about to disagree with the barber when he had a feeling he should hold back. He was surprised by this feeling, but decided to follow his intuition. He tactfully changed the subject of the conversation, but kept thinking about the barber’s comment about God.

As the young man was leaving the barbershop, he noticed through the window a man on the street who had very long, unkempt hair and a long, unkempt beard. This gave the young man an idea.

He turned to the man who just trimmed his hair and beard and proclaimed, “Barbers don’t exist.”

“Are you crazy,” asked the barber? “You just paid me to cut your hair and trim your beard.” I’m living proof that barber’s exist.

The young man replied, “Look out in the street. Do you see that man with long messy hair and a long straggly beard? If barber’s exist, there wouldn’t be anyone who looked like that. I can’t imagine barbers would allow something like this.”

And the young man turned and left.

A Broken Sacred Contract and How to Move On

This post is inspired by a question for The Council from Chris who asks how to move on when someone she feels she was meant to spend her life with broke a sacred contract by leaving. She also asks if it’s possible to find another partner under the circumstances.

Sacred Contracts

The Council observes that souls frequently agree to come into physical bodies during the same lifetime and help each other in their physical lives, but the Council isn’t inclined to understand these agreements as binding sacred contracts, as implied by Chris’s question. The Council believes the idea of an unchangeable binding sacred contract goes against one of the most important principles in all of creation: the free will that all humans, all souls, all spirit is given by our creator to choose, in any moment, from an infinite variety of possibilities. The Council’s idea of a sacred contract is the agreement each soul makes to unconditionally love the part of itself that comes to experience life in a physical body.

We in the Non-Physical are Always With You

This post contains a message from The Council on the love that spirit experiences coming into physical reality to help all here experience freedom. It’s a brief message, but one of the most loving, uplifting, and inspiring we’ve received. It’s also an important reminder we aren’t alone in our physical existence and that spirit is always with us.

The Council’s Message

“And so today we will talk about the spirit – how unafraid all spirits are to come forth into the physical. It is looked upon as a way to help physical and non-physical expand. There is a great feeling of love to come into this planet and help all that are here – and all that will be here on future trips – experience more freedom.

“With each incarnation we open the road for the ones that come behind us. And there is nothing but that intention to experience joy and love and be playful.  And we do not come here to experience hardships, as some have taught.

“And as we hear Cynthia say her favorite song, My Heart Will Go On Forever [from the movie Titanic], it is not the physical heart, but the love within it that indeed does go on forever.

“As you return to the non-physical, all the love that you have felt in this particular lifetime comes back with you. And there is such a vibration, there is such an expansion, and we all truly benefit from this. And the vibration continues to become stronger. And it reaches out so everything will feel this vibration, from the human, to the animal, to the plants, and the Earth itself. And every kindness that you do, and every good intention, every action helps us all to evolve.

“And so, whenever possible, reach for this feeling of love: in your meditations, in something you want to do, in a memory, or in just sitting and feeling the wellness and knowing that we in the non-physical are always with you. And as we watch you, we also know we are not alone – that you are always a part of us. And so this continues.

“We are all one. And so, as we like to think of you as our little brothers and sisters who have gone forth, we send you our love.”

A Note From Bob & Cynthia

We hope these words somehow help you experience the feelings of love, acceptance, appreciation, joy, well-being, and connectedness to spirit that we experienced during our meditation, and to some extend we continue to experience. It’s gradually beginning to sink into our awareness that the energy and vibration of these feelings is something spirit continually and unconditionally offers all who are experiencing a physical reality; and the willingness of any person to allow an experience of it, in any moment, will help anyone experience this energy, these vibrations, these feelings, more and more.

We welcome your comments and feedback on this post and our other posts on this blog. Feel free to let us know if you have a question you’d like to ask The Council. As their message states, there is a great feeling of love on spirit’s part to help all who are here experience more freedom.
