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.

This post is inspired by a question from Carmela, who asks The Council how she can get her recent eye spasms to stop. One of the things that makes this question interesting is Carmela’s focus on physical symptoms and The Council’s ability to tune into what’s causing them.
The Council says an eye doctor isn’t the one to help Carmela at this point, and they ask her to look at her life and see if she feels any extra stress when the spasms began about 5 months ago. Physically Carmela has created a subluxation (or misalignment) of her C2 and C3 vertebrae in her neck, but The Council says this is caused by an emotional thought of something going on in her life.
The Council asks Carmela what is it she doesn’t want to see, understand, or move forward to in her life since the spasms began? The Council recommends massage, acupuncture, and/or chiropractic adjustments to help her physically with her eye spasms. But for more permanent results Carmela should look at what’s coming up in her life on an emotional level.
When Bob asked The Council for more details about the emotional aspects of Carmela’s eye spasms, they said there’s several things going on, but the situation will resolve more quickly if Carmela is able to find the answer herself. And while the massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic will provide needed physical relief, The Council stresses again the importance working on the emotional aspect of this problem to keep it from reoccurring.
Since we chose to answer several readers’ questions during this session, we’ve included The Council’s wrap-up at the end of the session with each question we post. During this wrap-up The Council advises all of us to go in the direction of our heart and the direction of love to become more clear on what’s really going on in our life.
Listen to the entire 6-minute session (below) to hear The Council’s full guidance for Carmela and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Marie, who asks The Council why she often gets stuck in her life. Marie’s 36-years old and has a master’s degree, but she’s unable to find work in her area of study and doesn’t seem able to hold a job for long. Her parents give her money and she says she works like a housewife for them. Marie also says she’s only had one romantic relationship that lasted a couple months, and says she was devastated when it ended.
The Council asks Marie about believing she can have more than she’s currently experiencing. They ask what she would like to do, and suggest she start doing it as a hobby or a volunteer. Begin to break the pattern of feeling stuck in her life. There’s a belief she doesn’t deserve to experience more than what she already has. And The Council says this is the reason she hasn’t had another relationship, and why she moves forward and then back.
The Council suggests Marie connect with spirit and learn who she truly is by reading the book, Emmanuel, by Pat Rodegast. Nothing is happening in her life that isn’t pushing her forward in the direction she wishes to go.
The Council sees much more for Marie in her life. When she’s ready they see she’ll move to a place of her choice. And this will be a gigantic leap for her that will bring up fear, but they say this is exactly the reason she’s supposed to do this. And she should begin slowly.
The Council suggests Marie accept thoughts of being stuck, but then to find better feeling thoughts and move on from there. Rather than focusing on why she’s stuck they suggest she look how she can change her life when she’s ready. First connect with Emmanuel and then find out what she desires? Where does she want to live? What would she like to experience? What kind of job would she like? What kind of relationship? The Council suggests going into detail about how she’d like her life to change in order to get rid of that stuck feeling.
The Council advises Marie she’s chosen to be in this reality to learn to love it and move it in the direction she desires. As she begins to overcome her fears and tunes into the feeling of who she truly is as a spiritual being in a physical body, she’ll begin to feel the vibration from spirit that will support her dreams and she’ll fulfill many of them.
Listen to the recording of our session with The Council on Marie’s question (below) to get the full benefit of their guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by an interesting question from a reader named Lynn, who says that several times a day she had compulsive thoughts about her unborn child dying during her last pregnancy. And as happy as she is that her daughter was born healthy, she wonders why this negative thinking didn’t have an adverse effect on her pregnancy, if thoughts have the power to physically manifest and create.
The Council says they see Lynn had a great concern for her health in other lifetimes, particularly one in London that was filled with disease and poverty, and she brought this fear for her child into this lifetime to turn it around.
Lynn’s higher self wanted to create the experience of having fearful thoughts during her pregnancy so she could live it differently than she did in her lifetime in London. And The Council says Lynn created these compulsive thoughts so she could learn how to experience them and not manifest them.
Lynn’s spirit pre-planned for her to experience these compulsive thoughts, but they didn’t happen in her physical reality because her higher self, which is always trying to steer you in the right direction, provided a vibration of love, understanding, and healing that prevented the compulsive thoughts from manifesting.
Lynn pre-birth planned to have these compulsive thoughts and then wonder why they didn’t manifest. The Council says it was to release old memories from the past, which is what she’s able to do now. They say this situation was created in the vibration of mass healing from another lifetime, which is why it was created.
The Council says perhaps the next time Lynn has fearful or compulsive thoughts, she’ll acknowledge them and release the fear by understanding she created it, and she can let go of it knowing it doesn’t need to happen, like her thoughts about her daughter’s pregnancy.
Everyone in this reality has picked challenges and lessons they want to go through. What The Council likes about Lynn’s comment is that it can help people realize when they have fearful thoughts or situations, it will help them face their fear and ask how they can bring love into it, and know they don’t have to go in the direction of the fear. Love yourself and the vibration that’s teaching you these lessons, and then think of the direction you’d like to go.
Lynn didn’t manifest her worst fears because it was a lesson from another lifetime and because it was pre-planned to bring her forward to this point so she can see that fear is just a vibration and doesn’t have to manifest. Your higher self, which isn’t separate from who you are, will always take you into the lesson you wish to have, and take you through the lesson with love.
No matter how often you feel fear, spirit is always trying to help you through it. And in Lynn’s case she experienced her spirit safely taking her through her fears. You don’t need to be afraid of fearful thoughts. You can have them, acknowledge them, and say: No, I’m a spirit in a physical body and I’m here to bring love into this situation, and let the fear go.
Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council (below) to answer Lynn’s question and receive it’s full benefit, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Andrea who aborted her child after a 13-week pregnancy. Andrea says she doesn’t feel this abortion was pre-planned. She instead believes she allowed her free will to interfere and abort what she feels was her only chance at having a child. Andrea begged the spirit of her aborted child to come back to her in a future pregnancy, but she guesses this is unlikely because she’s 39 years old.
The first thing The Council says in this session is that abortions are always pre-planned. Then they say from where they are in spirit they don’t have to guess about Andrea becoming pregnant again. This spirit is waiting to return if this is truly what she wants.
The Council suggests Andrea ask if she’s beginning to understand she is a spirit in a physical body. If she’s not there yet, she needs to do some research on this and on pre-birth planning and past lives. She needs to get to a place where she knows there’s a reason for everything that happens.
The Council says Andrea’s abortion has brought her to a place where she needs to look deeper into these subjects of pre-birth planning and past lives, and that’s why she’s arrived at this point. When she’s able to let go of the thought that this abortion happened because her free will made a wrong decision, she’ll realize she’s right on track.
Now she should move forward and learn about other realities, and how we bring talent and challenges from these other lifetimes into our current lifetime. When she’s able to let go of the idea that something happened to her and embrace the idea she’s creating what happens, she’ll then be in a new place where she can start creating what she wants. And if a child is desired at that time, the spirit will return to Andrea because it’s agreed to and because there is a desire to be together again.
Listen to this short, but powerful 5-minute session with The Council to receive all of their guidance for Andrea and the rest of us. And let us know what you think, or if you have a question of your own for The Council.
This post is inspired by a follow-up question from a reader named Jolanda who wrote to us a few months ago about whether she should leave her abusive husband, and The Council advised her that she should leave because her husband wouldn’t change. They also said she should leave for the sake of her children. Jolanda says she’s spent these months trying to find a solution other than leaving, but she now sees her situation isn’t likely to get any better.
The Council says staying with her husband isn’t the direction she wanted to go in and they ask Jolanda not to give up hope on what she can create for herself. They ask if she believes she deserves better, and they say if she’s unable to live with this difficulty there’s another path to happiness. They suggest she look for the courage to pursue this happiness, and they add there’s no rush. Jolanda will get where she wants when she’s more comfortable within herself and researched how she’ll make her life work without being with her husband. She’s still in the beginning stage.
Jolanda says she thought she’d be married for the rest of her life and can barely imagine living without her husband. And The Council asks how she expects to change this situation when she’s unable to imagine the change.
The Council reminds Jolanda that to create a better situation she needs to continually focus on what she desires. If she goes through this situation day after day and doesn’t focus on what she desires because it’s difficult to see a better way, her situation will remain unchanged.
The Council says if Jolanda is unable to find it in her heart to leave her husband, the lesson here is still finding courage. While she is still in this relationship she doesn’t have to take abuse, which she has created, from her husband. Put herself and her children first. Learn to be protected.
The Council sees Jolanda has a lot of work to get to the point where she can focus on how she’d like to live her life. The lesson can be learned, but instead of feeling hopeless she needs to change her thinking. However long this takes, she’ll find a way to do this.
What can she do to find happiness for herself and her children while she remains in this situation? When she goes into a vibration of happiness, the abusive vibration will not match her happiness and won’t continue to bother her. Eventually it will stop.
The Council says Jolanda needs to take her focus off how horrible her situation is and change her thoughts. It’s her spiritual job right now to find a way to bring the love and happiness into her home.
The Council finishes with a reminder there’s nothing more powerful than your higher self. Think of yourself as a great spirit and warrior that has picked a tremendous challenge to go through, and you knew you could do this. There isn’t anything more powerful than your higher self. Pay attention to this part of you. Use the tools you’ve been given and keep focusing on the life you desire.
Listen to our entire 16-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all of their guidance for Jolanda and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Amber, who asks The Council if she’s on the right track with her spiritual readings.
The Council says they love getting questions about being on the right track because they say you are always on the right track. You always get to where you want to go. You may take a shortcut or a longer journey, but you are always on the right track. You are just changing with your thoughts how you get to where you want to go. And The Council adds that we change our thoughts by what we believe.
Amber asks The Council if she can eventually make a full-time career out of doing spiritual readings. And The Council recommends with practice they see a full-time career is possible. They see she’s done this in many lifetimes, along with healing, and it should come easily to her.
The Council says how Amber does the reading isn’t that important, and they recommend touching the person’s hand or shoulder to see what kind of images she gets and how she feels. As she does this the images will increase, and she’ll also find she has a lot of healing energy in her hands. The energy and the intention of what she intends to provide for each person, in addition to her guidance for these people, will help her develop. The Council says many people will come to her. This is a great talent Amber has, and she enjoys using it.
When we answer more than one person’s question in a reading (like we do in this session), we generally include The Council’s closing statements in the recordings of both sessions. As we mentioned in our last session, The Council chose to offer a more extended closing than usual. They say everyone in spirit wants us to know they are sending us their support. They think many of us are very courageous for what we choose to experience. And they increasingly hear us say we are finally turning our life experience into something more positive.
And as spirit sends us more energy, more of us are open to receiving this and we’re paying attention to our feelings and our thoughts. And we become more enlightened and take another step home to spirit with more knowledge and love. And each time we return to spirit, we can bring that love with us.
Listen to our entire session with The Council to answer Amber’s question (below) for the full benefit of their guidance for her and for the rest of us. Let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Ashley, who asks The Council about her past and present lives, her abortion, her current boyfriend, and chakras, in addition to several other questions and a bit of background in 3 separate Comments posts, but The Council decides to talk about her purpose in this lifetime.
The Council sees Ashley has looked for many teachers and experimented with many paths, and they say this is precisely what she planned to do. They notice she’s feeling frustrated with everything she’s learned and this is because the answers are within her. The Council says Ashley is to now turn inward and realize she is the light, the love, the intelligence, and the spiritual being she’s searching for.
The Council says that while meditation is always a good way to look inward, they feel in Ashley’s case she should also read about near death experiences and past lives to hear stories of people who have passed on and come back to show there’s more going on than what takes place in this physical lifetime. They say this will help Ashley believe more in herself and begin to trust in her abilities.
The Council says being open to all these other beliefs and paths was good experience for Ashley, but it wasn’t enough and now she needs to turn inward and find out more about herself and the spirit world. And this will help her tune into a finer vibration of the love that’s felt in spirit, and will bring her joy.
The Council says Ashley was meant to be an example of a more positive and hopeful person, and as she discovers this for herself she’ll also be able to do this for her partner and the people around her. She is doing exactly what she planned and experiencing everything she wanted to experience. Now her questions about spirituality will lead her to a better understanding of herself.
The Counsel says all abortions are an agreement between the mother, the father, and the spirit of the child who is aborted.
Ashley mentions learning more about chakras and The Council says chakras are energy that helps you create your life experience with your thoughts and beliefs. If she feels this subject holds something for her, The Council suggests Ashley study this. And how she thinks about chakras will determine how it affects her life.
The Council says if there isn’t much interest in chakras, or she’s ready to go beyond these beliefs, they ask Ashley to continually find time to sit in the energy of white light and bring it into and around her body, in her surroundings, and just begin to feel it. It is always there. Stay positive and bring yourself to the vibration of happiness and joy, which is who you are as spirit.
Ordinarily we end our sessions with an exchange blessings, but in this case The Council adds that spirit wants everyone in our human reality to know they are sending us their support. And they are thinking how courageous many of us are to go through what we experience, and how many of us are saying we’re finally turning our lives around. And they say as spirit sends more and more energy, more people are open to receiving this energy.
