What will you ask Spirit?

Should I Get Pregnant After My Abortion?

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Second Abortion

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

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

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

Is Monogamy Okay?

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

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

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

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

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

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

How to Work with Crystals

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

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

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

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

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

Abortion Insights

Ali’s questions

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

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

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

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

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

Was My Stillborn Child a Family Member Who Passed?

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

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

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

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

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

Why Go Through Pain to Have Your Soul Grow?

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

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

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

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

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

Child Wants to Stay Home from School

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New Challenges and Will I Be Bi-polar Again

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is the Name of My Spirit Guides?

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

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

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

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

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

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

How Do I Release My Connection to This Soul?

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

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

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

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

Will the Soul be the Same in a Future Pregnancy?

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

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

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

Will My Aborted Child Return My Next Pregnancy?

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

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

A Stillborn Pregnancy

Jyoti’s questions

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

Having this soul again

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

A Dream

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

A Strong Connection

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