Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

A Pre-Birth Soul Agreement Involving Rape

This post is about a question from a reader named Susan, who was molested/raped by an older brother from 12 years old to 14, when she became pregnant with his child. Susan has learned we often enter into pre-birth agreements with other spirits to share certain experiences during a physical lifetime and she asks what agreement she made with the spirit of her brother that allowed this to happen.

The Council says Susan wanted to go through something shameful in this lifetime so she could have the experience of trying to turn it around with love. The spirit of her brother volunteered from a place of love to help her with this challenge. And Susan also wanted to experience the joy of forgiveness by forgiving her brother.

The Council says that as a spiritual being Susan is pure love and light, and from this point of view what she experienced with her brother isn’t as horrible as it sounds from a physical point of view. The Council is clear Susan chose to experience this challenge to know she’s okay whatever happens in her physical life.

The Council says if Susan feels this challenge is too much for her and she’s having difficulty bringing love into it, then she needs to remove herself from being around her brother for a while, but to take time to send him love. They say she doesn’t have to feel it; just think the thought. It can be difficult in the beginning, but sending love will change both of them for the better.

The Council says it was very brave of Susan to ask this question. They add she’s performed a valuable service and brought a lot of love into this reality by asking it. And this question will help many others in similar circumstances.

The Council says we are never alone and spirit is always sending us light and love. They advise meditating on what this love and light feels like and gradually our thoughts and feelings will begin to change. And they say this doesn’t just affect the two of them, but it affects us all.

The Council closes by reminding us that human and spirit help each other and to remember we are more than a person in a physical body. We are also spirit. And we’re here to take the love from spirit and expand it into our lives, and to know there is nothing wrong with how you experience your human life.

Listen to the recording below of the entire 18-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance. This session was longer than most and we’ve only included some of the highlights here. There’s a lot of guidance in this session and we encourage you to re-listen to it or the parts you think are worthwhile. And as always, please let us know what you think.

Relationship Advice (What Have You Learned?)

In this post we answer Tanya’s question about a man and their on-again off-again relationship. Back in March 2013 Tanya asked a previous question about this relationship and to answer it we published the post, Why Would Spirit Choose to Be a Human Being Who Experiences Pain.

In that 2013 session The Council predicted Tanya would get back together with this man, and she starts her current question by confirming The Council was right. They got together at the beginning of 2015 and he proposed marriage to her, but the next day he changed his mind and Tanya’s been feeling depressed about this.

The Council informs Tanya she created coming together with this man because there was something to be learned from this relationship. She asks if they see the two of them reconnecting again, but she also says they’re not currently speaking and it’s okay if they don’t speak again.

The Council restates what’s important for Tanya is to learn what her experience with this man has taught her. They do see another coming together and they say if it’s her desire to make this relationship work, there will always be a way.

The Council encourages Tanya to focus on herself now instead of waiting for this man to come back into her life. They say it’s wonderful to choose to move on, and it’s also wonderful to stay with this man. When she finds out what she’s learned from this relationship, she’ll handle the situation differently and she’ll be happier with her choice.

The Council is pretty clear there is no right or wrong path for Tanya the next time this man comes into her life. It seems the important thing is to take this time to figure out what this relationship means to teach her. And with this information it will be up to her how she handles the next time.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session to hear all of The Council’s guidance for Tanya, and let us know what you think.

Past Lives with Ex-Boyfriend and His Mother?

This post answers an anonymous reader’s question about whether she knows her ex-boyfriend and his mother from a previous lifetime.

The Council was quick to interject while Bob read this question, that we all know each other. In retrospect this comment raises some interesting questions, but we let them pass and concentrated on the more specific aspects of Anonymous’s question. Perhaps The Council will shed more light on this comment in one or more future sessions.

The Council says that while Anonymous shares many lifetimes with these people, they prefer to look at the ones that relate to the life she’s living now. They say one reason for her familiarity with them is that before this lifetime the three of them worked very well together, while still in spirit, to help little children return to spirit from their physical lives.

The Council says because the three of them enjoyed this spiritual experience so much, they decided to incarnate into this physical life, “to sort of stir things up, and experience more situations where you could all be in the helping role.”

Bob raises the question of Anonymous not currently being with her ex-boyfriend. And The Council replies that whether they were helping each other or those around them, the idea was to bring love into every situation. Just because they’re not together now doesn’t mean they didn’t achieve this goal while they were together. And it doesn’t mean they saw it necessary to stay together for this whole incarnation. The Council adds sometimes people come together for the short-term to experience whatever they have planned, and then they move on.

When Bob asks about past lives these three may have shared that are relevant to their current life, The Council repeats there are many. And they say they believe Anonymous is able to tap into these past lives by asking for this information and meditating on it.

The Council sees the three of them were together as men in the early 1800s working with children in orphanages and children who were abandoned to the streets. They created a community of people that fed these children and tried to find them homes.

The Council asks Anonymous whether her relationship with the ex-boyfriend and his mother helped create a feeling she’d like to continue helping children in this lifetime. They add it would be good for her to meditate on how she can help others, and this will fulfill her spiritual desire to share and bring love into this lifetime.

Listen below to the entire recording of our 8-minute session with The Council to answer Anonymous’s question and feel free to offer your feedback. Please forgive us for some minor technical difficulties we had with the audio during this session.

Angels, Spirit Guides, and Other Non-Physical Beings

This post answers a question from a reader named Jan about angels, guides, spirits, channeled entities, and other non-physical beings who watch over and interact with human beings. Jan  understands she’s an eternal soul here to bring love from spirit, but she’s fascinated by The Council’s take on these other non-physical beings.

The Council begins by mentioning that angels are spiritual beings that haven’t had a physical life as a human being. But many other spirits and guides have lived physical lives in human bodies and come back to us in the form of channeled guidance. The Council also mentions that although angels are made from light and energy, they can appear to humans in any way we believe they will look.

The Council says when these spirits and guides leave their human bodies they often volunteer to help the humans that remain by coming to us with healing or channeled information that’s brought to us by people who allow this information to come through them.

The Council says it’s the energy and the feeling of love that comes through the words rather than the words themselves, and they promise if you read or listen to it, the understanding will come to you a little at a time.

The Council reminds us that even though we may be in a human body, part of us is still simultaneously in the spirit world. This can be a surprise for those of us who think when we come into a human body we leave spiritual reality behind.

When Bob asked The Council about non-physical beings who might be interested in spreading fear instead of love, they respond that many people have a need to believe there’s something evil ‘out there’ that’s creating all this horrible stuff  that’s going on. The Council says we’ve created this to turn it around – to realize the fear and evil do not exist.

The Council says spirit is working very hard to constantly send love and supportive energy to us humans, and they are answering our questions, whether we get the answer in a dream or a feeling.

Listen to the entire 9-minute recording of our session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jan and her question on non-physical beings.

The Council’s Use of Prononuns

This post is about a question from a reader named Jan who wants to know if The Council’s use of pronouns like ‘you’ and ‘we’ is meant to differentiate between themselves and those of us in this physical reality.

The simple answer is, we don’t think so. The Council says sometimes they say ‘you’ when they’re trying to make a point about the person who’s asked a question. And they sometimes say ‘we’ when they’re talking more generally or when they are included.

The not so simple explanation has to do with how The Council experiences reality and how we experience reality. The Council says they use you and I often to refer to the same person because we are all one. But they add this point of view takes some understanding.

The Council says, “In truth we are all parts of all reality. And yet it is easier for people to understand when we say, ‘We have chosen to be part of your reality.’ It is easier to understand it that way instead of saying, ‘We are all in everybody’s reality all the time.'”

In other words, The Council seems to be saying their choice of pronouns has less to do with differences between us and them, and more to do with making themselves more easily understood by the largest number of people.

The Council says when they use the words ‘you’ and ‘us,’ many people don’t understand they’re referring to the same thing because they see us as spiritual beings just like they are spiritual beings.

The Council suggests meditating on their answers to this question and says it will open many doors and pose many new questions.

Jan also asks about beings like angels that interact with us from a non-physical reality, but we’ve decided to answer this question in a future post.

Listen to The Council’s answer to this question in the 6-minute session below and let us know your thoughts.

The Council Talks About Abortion

During a recent session The Council took the opportunity to speak in general about the subject of abortion because so many readers have asked about it. This post is devoted to that session. An audio recording of this session is included at the end of this post.

The Council notes that most questions on abortion center on the theme of feeling guilty and the need to feel forgiven. And they want everyone involved in making a decision about an abortion to understand that whatever their decision, whether to abort, or have the child and keep it or give it away, all the souls involved have agreed on this decision and there is nothing to feel guilty about.

They say this isn’t easy to understand when you are going through it because your experience in this lifetime is part of your personality and what you believe about it. But The Council suggests when you can begin to believe you are an eternal spirit in your physical body and the creator of all you experience,  this difficulty becomes less burdensome.

The Council says whether you decide to abort a child or not, this is part of an agreement you made with the soul of this child to have this experience and your higher selves are very happy about whatever outcome you choose.

The Council hopes you will experience relief when you hear abortion isn’t a horrible thing and you haven’t killed a spirit or put an end to a life, because we are eternal. They say we come to this Earth reality for experiences that are emotional and physical, and they remind us to always look for the love in each experience. In the case of abortion, you giving love to a spirit that wanted to have this experience.

The Council briefly discusses the subject of giving birth to a child with disabilities, and how you are giving this child an opportunity to experience a life that it and you have chosen.

The Council finishes with a reminder it’s your privilege in every situation to find that you are spirit in your physical body, see others for who they are as spirit, and look for ways to show the love you are.

Thank you for taking time to read this post. Listen to the entire 14-minute session below to hear all The Council’s advice, and be sure to let us know what you think.
