Why Didn’t My Negative Thinking Effect My Child’s Pregnancy?

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.

  2. Bob, Cynthia, and the Council,

    I’ve been reading your posts for quite some time and find them to be so incredibly helpful in this lifetime.

    I feel at this point in time that I’m a bit stuck. I’ve done an immense amount of growing and discovering in this lifetime, and it seems I’ve come to a standstill recently. I’ve repeatedly been drawn to things like lucid dreaming, meditation, spiritual connection in general. Connection with my higher self, I believe. I do feel I’m drawn to all of this for a reason.

    How do I navigate through this stage? How to I connect more deeply with myself? I would truly love to do this and be able to manifest quicker.

    I have a feeling I know, but I’d like to understand exactly what lessons I’m here to learn this time. What have I struggled with in past lifetimes? What might I be struggling to break through with currently? I feel that if I can have a better understanding of the things I’m sending myself, so to speak, I can navigate through this lifetime a little better.

    Thank you, and love and light,

  3. I am beyond grateful for the clarification this post has brought me today and I am coming more and more into alignment as I uncover ways to attune with the light hearted aspects this lesson had to offer. What once was a fear that controlled and tormented me daily is now just a memory that leaves my family and myself giggling at the absurdity of it all. This is also something I’ve come to be grateful for; not taking things too seriously. The disorder has given me a much deeper understanding and awareness of mental illness and the power of the mind. Overcoming something that had become so out of control was an empowering experience that started the day I deliberately made the choice to not be a victim to fear. Once I opened the door to that idea the inner healing that took place was powerful and swift. The council helped me bridge together an understanding of why I’ve battled with fearful compulsions in the first place and helped me find the missing link to further understand my situation and how my preplanning affects the overall vibrations brought my way. Thank you for bringing the true healing and growth that blossomed from my SELF realization full circle!!
