Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Abortion and a Spiritual Crossroad

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Guadalupe who had an abortion 3 months ago. First she asks if her abortion was pre-planned, and The Council says it was definitely pre-planned. They say she followed the path she had planned with this spirit and there is no reason for guilt.

Guadalupe asks if this soul is her spirit guide, and The Council says not in this lifetime. Maybe in other lifetimes this soul guided or will guide her, but in this particular lifetime this soul was not her spirit guide. When she asks if this spirit is close to her when she thinks of him, The Council says yes. And this soul is constantly sending her love so she can let go of any feelings of guilt about her decision to end this pregnancy.

Guadalupe asks if this soul loves her and The Council says without a doubt there is love. When she asks if this spirit plans to return to her, The Council says they don’t see that in this lifetime, but they will be together again eventually.

Guadalupe asks if there’s disappointment over her decision to terminate the pregnancy, and The Council asks why would there be disappointment when everything went exactly as planned. In response to Guadalupe’s question if this spirit is doing well now, The Council says with a chuckle that where they are this soul is doing very well. And this spirit is working very hard to send her love and hoping she will let this love in and feel it.

Guadalupe assumes she’ll never meet this spirit and asks how to contact it. The Council tells her, of course you’ll get to meet this spirit. And she can contact it through her prayers, meditation, and in her dreams. They advise her to speak to this soul either out loud or in her mind and feel this soul around her. The Council also says Guadalupe should know she gave this spirit the experience it wanted.

Guadalupe apologizes again for ending her pregnancy and The Council reminds her she gave this soul a gift of something it wanted to experience. And they say this soul stepped forward and gave Guadalupe something she wanted also.

Guadalupe asks what lessons she learned as a result of this abortion, and The Council says this situation brought her to a spiritual crossroads. Will she stay feeling guilty and sad, or will she eventually understand what a wonderful thing they both experienced? And does this open her to more spiritual experiences and feelings of love, because that is what she wants in her life?

In closing The Council suggests Guadalupe think of this soul as someone she loves who has moved to another neighborhood, and eventually she will get to that neighborhood and be reunited with this spirit.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Guadalupe.

  1. Hi, Marianne. We’ll be happy to ask The Council the reason you became pregnant at this time and post their response. In the meantime, try to tune in to the love the soul of this child is sending you to help you through this difficult time. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  2. I just had an abortion a week or so ago. I have a wonderful husband, two young children and an aging mother to look after. I am having issues understanding why this had to happen. We knew immediately we would not be keeping the pregnancy but I have been struggling with anxiety and have had troubles focusing due to being obsessed with why? Can you shed some light?

  4. Hi Cynthia, Bob & The Council,

    I’ve been reading and listening to a lot of your posts on abortion. I had one in late January 2016. I am 22 and having a hard time dealing with this as there are a lot of loose ends to my situation regarding my pregnancy. I guess I am finding answers. I wanted to kindly ask if Bob, Cynthia and The Council could answer these questions that have been lingering on my mind.

    I try to take each day slowly at a time, I am currently jobless and have no idea where my life is headed. Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I have been feeling a sense of “wholeness” and “love” for myself. Is this my child?

    Also, the father is not in my life anymore and was never truly there, is there any meaning to why he was never part of this picture with my child and I? At times, I wonder how he’s doing and wish I could tell him everything I’ve learned from this abortion since he was not present during the entire thing. Should he know? I don’t believe he deserves to but a part of me thinks I should.

    I’ve learned not to look at this experience as a “mistake” but a part of me cannot help but feel sad. I am not sure if I’m sad over losing the child, losing him or for the poor decisions I’ve made so far? I strongly feel like I am not living my true life by running away from myself (which has led me to become emotionally insecure, validating my self-worth through men). Shouldn’t I feel ashamed for hiding so much from my parents and disobeying their trust (hiding this pregnancy) regardless of how much they love me?

    Is my child still here with me? And can I speak to it through meditation or praying? Does my child still love me as much as I do? Can I speak to him(father) through nonverbal communication as well? Sometimes I can feel him thinking about everything. Is there a way I can connect with him?

    Thank you so much in advance for answering my questions. Your help is truly appreciated.

  5. I love that the council is enlightening people to what an abortion is: an opportunity for spiritual growth. It’s a shame that “the church” has spent so much time and energy on making people feel shame because they don’t understand soul’s wishes and plans. Thank you so very much for what you do, Bob and Cynthia, and The Council.

  6. Thank you so much for answering! It has helped me immensely. Now everything makes much sense. I always feel the love of that being and I will hug him with my heart whenever I miss him. Indeed, abortion is a spiritual crossroad for many of us who experience it. It has been by far the most painful experience of my life but at the same time it creates so much expansion and spiritual evolution. In a way I hope we humans do not have to learn through suffering. Hopefully someday we will evolve spiritually as a result of happy experiences 🙂 I send you blessings and love! You are loved as well 🙂
