Where Do Souls Come From for Earth’s Increasing Population

In this post The Council answers questions from a reader named Audrey, who says around 1800 the Earth’s population was approximately 1 billion people and now the Earth’s population exceeds 7 billion. Audrey wants to know where the additional souls come from?

The Council says they come from different dimensions, different realities, and sometimes different living environments that are just emotional. They say there are many different places souls can be in to experience other lives. The Council adds that some souls decide to remain in the spiritual reality and help others from there, and they can choose to incarnate into a human reality on Earth when they need to experience something particular, to help someone, or to be supportive to our planet.

While The Council might not clearly explain to everyone’s satisfaction where the increase in souls is coming from, they’re clear that there’s not a one to one relationship between individuals living on Earth at any given time and the number of souls available to inhabit these human bodies. The Council says there are many more souls than can be accounted for in our Earthly reality.

Audrey also asks, as the human population increases and the wild animal population decreases, what happens to the souls of these wild animals? The Council says these souls, like human souls, also have other dimensions they can go to. They can also choose to reincarnate on Earth if they choose to have this experience. And they can reincarnate as other species.

The Council says everything that has a soul, goes on. There’s an ending to the life as we know it in our reality,  but the soul continues. There’s no ending.

Bob mentions he’s heard that animals have group souls, but not individual souls, and asks The Council about that. The Council says animals have both individual and group souls just like humans.

Avery asks if animals have the option not to reincarnate, and The Council says they always have this option.

The Council finishes by asking us to remember that all creatures on the Earth path have choices every minute of every day. Every soul has choices. Animals have the choice of how to respond to different humans. The animals’ lesson is always to show love. They have a stronger vibration of love than humans.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance about souls for Avery and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about this.

Am I On the Right Financial Path?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Mary, who says she recently sold her home and will be using the proceeds to:

  1. Pay off her debt
  2. Lend her fiancee money to pay off his student loans
  3. Reinvest the rest to build a guest house at their home (presumably a different home)

Mary says she’s anxious whether these are good choices for what to do with the money and she asks if she’s on the right financial path.

The Council advises Mary to slow down, look at the situation, and know there’s a possibility of “blowing” the money from the sale. They advise her to take what she has and learn to work with it. Get a summary of the money she has and all the bills that must be paid. The Council says this can be done without a struggle and as she begins to pay these bills and she sees she’s able to handle this money better, she can think of selling the house at that point.

Bob points out that Mary says she already sold her home, and The Council says there’s more that’s coming, either more property involved or other houses. They advise Mary as she goes forward, to work on making lists of things that have to be paid. There’s more coming up around her with making money, how to spend it, and how to balance where she uses some for living and some for fun.

There’s a lesson that she needs to learn about balance in all things in her life; balance in relationships, balance in work, balance in how play, balance in spending, and physical and spiritual balance. The Council suggests Mary read some books on the spirit world, on other lifetimes, on people that channel, and bring this information together.

When it comes to paying off her debt, The Council recommends not taking all the money to pay off everything. Pay off some debt and make sure she keeps some money for living.

When it comes to paying off her fiancees student loans, The Council prefaces their recommendation by saying there are other issues involving her boyfriend that they won’t go into at this time. Then they say the boyfriend’s student loans can be paid off as long as all the money isn’t spent to pay off his and her debt.

On the subject of reinvesting the rest of the money to build a guest house at her home, The Council says this is a good idea if this is what she wants to do, just don’t use all the money. Always make sure you have money available to you.

Mary says she’s not sure if she’ll have this opportunity again and The Council says there will be other opportunities.

The Council recommends that at one point every day Mary say three times, “I am balancing my world.”

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Mary and the rest of us on her finances, and let us know how you feel about it.

Son’s Anger Issues Related to Lifetime in Ancient Rome

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Lavender, who has an 8 year old boy with anger issues and she wonders why. The Council says this boy is hurting very deeply inside and at this point he doesn’t know how to feel love. He has a lot of mistrust and believes he must be alone.

The Council says your son is deeply affected by a lifetime in ancient Rome and he’s got a lot to heal from this lifetime. He was a slave who was taken to the arena where gladiators fought and was picked to be in charge of other slaves. This gave him safety, but turned the slaves he was friendly with against him.

He carries a lot of guilt from this Roman lifetime that he’s going to try and work out in his current lifetime. Your son has an authority problem in his current lifetime related to the lifetime in Rome, he has difficulty following orders, and he doesn’t like being told what to do.

The way you ask your son to do things will either create anger or give him understanding. Explain why, when you ask him to do the littlest thing and thank him for being a helpful part of your family. He needs to know he’s included and not alone. In his current lifetime he wants to know he can survive by being himself and being part of a family.

Lavender feels guilty for having this son when she was young and The Council says there is no use for this guilt. She needs to take part in helping her son heal the issues he’s brought into this lifetime.

Lavender asks The Council for advice on how to guide her son and The Council says their pre-birth agreement was that she would give him confidence and accept him no matter how he behaves in the moment. He needs an explanation how some of his behavior upsets her and why. And follow these explanations with reminders of the good he does.

Lavender says she recognizes in her son the same internal struggles she went through growing up. She is also resistant to authority figures. The Council suggests she explain to her son that she also doesn’t like to be told what to do. Maybe you can work on this together and bond over it. With understanding his mind will open, acceptance of how different things can be will begin to flood in, and clarity will come.

Lavender says she’s tried to teach her son things like the law of attraction, self empowerment, chakras, and meditation, and she says from this he became an elaborate storyteller. The Council says children have a great ability to astral project, remember their dreams, and travel to different dimensions. In your son’s case these stories aren’t made up. He is very psychic and intuitive and these are important tools for him as he grows.

The Council says many times your son is able to see from his third eye and he imagines other people can also do this. Encourage your son to talk to you about what he’s seeing and you’ll be surprised how he changes.

Treat your son with kindness, understanding, and love. Explain everything that’s asked of him. Explain when things annoy you and how you think about it and change it. Let him know how you want to teach him why he and everyone else is  here: to handle whatever challenges he faces, to acknowledge them, to work on them, and to turn them around with love.

Listen to our entire 18-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Lavender and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Is Daughter’s Fear of Choking Connected to Past Lives?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Kim, whose 10 year old daughter has a fear of choking, which seems to have come out of nowhere. It’s affecting her diet and causing weight loss. Kim wants to know if this fear is related to a past life and asks for advice overcoming this fear.

The Council sees several past lives for the daughter that are related to the fear of choking and they see it’s the daughter’s intention that the choking will stop in a relatively short time.

In one past life this fear of choking comes from being a fetus about to be born. In that lifetime the soul of this fetus agreed with her mother and father to be stillborn and when it was time to be born she wasn’t able to breathe. There was a tightness in the throat similar to what’s affecting Kim’s daughter’s current life. In that past lifetime the spirit of the mother wanted to experience the loss of a child and Kim’s daughter’s soul helped the mother out.

In another lifetime in the 1400s Kim’s daughter was hung for being a witch, and again there was a feeling of not being able to breathe. She had to hide her healing talents, her ability to make medicines, and her guidance of people.

In the daughter’s current lifetime her experience of choking will lessen as she learns to speak her truth and talk about how she feels. It’s a lesson for her to be brave about who she is and to speak out. The Council also suggests Kim’s daughter gets massaged, particularly the back of the neck, practices deep breathing, and takes singing lessons.

There was a lifetime where Kim’s daughter was a slave used for building and waiting on a royal family. As these slaves were no longer needed they were buried alive and again there was the feeling of not being able to breathe.

Kim’s daughter wanted to experience this choking feeling again and to know there was a way to transform the feeling of fear she experienced in two of her previous lifetimes and change her condition.

Kim’s daughter had another past life where she drowned. The Council suggests being on the lookout for fear of water, and they say that each of these deaths are affecting her current fear of choking.

The Council suggests, as Kim’s daughter becomes old enough, to begin letting her know that people have many lives for the purpose of experiencing love, and that you create everything that happens to you. She is a powerful spirit who is only experiencing this fear of choking so she can learn to change it.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Kim, her daughter, and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Are There Such Things As Negative Spirits?

This post answers questions from a reader named Mary, who asks The Council about the nature of what she calls negative spirits.

Mary says she has epilepsy and has heard that people with epilepsy often have more frequent interactions with spirit than other people. The Council says this isn’t true.

Mary says when she was younger she often had sleep paralysis where she felt like a spirit was taking the life out of her. She says she learned to use her mind to instruct these dark spirits to leave her alone. She’s been successful with this approach and it happens to her rarely these days.

The Council says these spirits aren’t evil. It’s more likely they’re having difficulty moving forward and they are attracted to Mary’s inner light. It’s not that they want to take this light away from her, they just wish to feel that light again. The Council agrees with Mary that these spirits must leave when they are asked to.

Bob asked The Council to elaborate on what they mean by these spirits not moving forward. This is more common when someone dies instantly, like when they are shot. Often these spirits don’t know they’ve passed over. They just see someone’s beautiful inner light and wish to be part of that.

Bob asked about situations like haunted houses that seem to be inhabited by spirits from long ago. The Council says some spirits do return to places familiar to them and this is just an experience they want to have. When the spirit is ready to let go of that particular lifetime it will move on.

The Council says what Mary refers to as negative spirits are spirits that are temporarily lost and unsure of who they are and where they are. Many people are frightened by these spirits, but The Council says they just need some guidance. Instead of being afraid you can send these spirits the vibration of love. When you do this you’ll feel a change in how this spirit appears or feels to you.

At the end of her questions Mary asks if this is a real spirit or just her negative thoughts. The Council says if you want to experience ghosts or something negative in this lifetime, that is what you’ll create. You’ll conjure up an evil spirit for your own experience to see how you handle this. When you get to a good place and you’re no longer afraid, and you know who you are as a spiritual being, you’ll send love to this spirit even if you think this spirit is negative.

The Council says sometimes you wish to experience fear to see how you’d handle it. In Mary’s case The Council says this was a desire to connect with her own inner spirit and not be afraid, and to turn this fear around with the feeling of love.

Listen to our entire 9-minute recording of a session with The Council (below) to hear hear all their guidance for Mary and the rest of us about what are commonly thought of as negative spirits, and let us know what you feel about this.

Spiritual Purpose of Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Jhendi, about depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. First they ask if there’s a spiritual purpose for these issues.

The Council says there is always a spiritual reason for experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD and it is always pre-planned in spirit. Sometimes in spirit you decide to experience these and see how you can turn them around in your human life. Sometimes you volunteer to go through these to have the people around you learn compassion and patience from this experience. And sometimes it’s to start a group or organization that works to bring understanding and change to these issues.

Jhendi says if we’re supposed to learn from these issues, does taking medication affect our learning since we get through the issue with pills rather than working through the problems on our own. This is a very interesting question.

The Council says if you get relief from medication you can take it. When you’re in a happier state you’re able to work through your problems. Many people need some sort of therapy to talk to a professional about what they’re experiencing. The Council says not to take medication and assume it’s sufficient by itself. The medication will ease you enough to deal with what comes up for you and show you how to handle it.

The Council recommends always taking the time, even if it’s a couple minutes a day, to meditate. And when they say, meditate, they mean that all you have to do is ask for the vibration of love to come into your life and find two things every day to be grateful for.

Listen to our entire 3-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Jhendi and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Spiritual Reason for a Stillbirth Pregnancy

This post answers questions from a reader named Thuy, who says she feels devastated after having a stillborn baby last November. Though she already has two children that keep her going, she misses the stillborn child dearly. She doesn’t know why the baby wasn’t born alive and still feels lost and confused. Thuy asks The Council for the spiritual reason her baby wasn’t able to make it into this lifetime alive.

The Council says the spirit of this child wasn’t sure it wanted to come in at this time. It wasn’t the right time for this soul to be born in order to learn the lessons it wanted to learn, and so it made the choice to be stillborn. This was an option everyone in Thuy’s family agreed to on a spiritual level. There are things that need to be settled within the family before this spirit can come in and learn what it wishes to learn.

The Council feels this spirit has agreed to come back to Thuy when it’s ready to learn what it wants to learn and if Thuy’s family is able to offer an environment conducive to this learning. Look within your family. Are things calm? Are you okay financially? Is everyone getting along? Is it the right time? These are the reasons this birth did not happen at this time.

Thuy says after the stillbirth she doesn’t feel good about anything. She adds that her husband is trying to sell his business because of an indifference with his partner and she’s worried about the family’s financial future. The Council says these worries can be part of the reason this soul decided not to be born at this time.

Thuy says she used to know what she wanted in her life, but now she’s not sure what will make her happy. The Council says this could also be a reason the spirit of her child chose not to be born at this time. Thuy may need to be more sure of herself and what she’d like to do.

The Council says if Thuy wishes the spirit to return to her in a future pregnancy, now is the time to work on herself and her family. See what you’d like to do, where you’d like to live, and what your husband will do for an income. Focus on these decisions and feel comfortable with them. Do not focus on having this soul come back to you. It will return without focusing on this. Focus on your life and what’s happening right now.

The Council says if Thuy is unsure what she wants right now, go into the vibration of happiness. Play with her two children and laugh with them. Think of your own childhood and anything that brought you joy. Get yourself in the vibration of love and happiness and everything will fall into place.

The Council recommends doing whatever makes Thuy feel good. Stretch yourself and what you believe in. Meditate and you will receive answers and signs for the direction to take your life in. Relax and let in any thought that feels like fun. Bring in the vibration of fun and something will come along that gives you a new beginning. Always be ready to learn something new.

Before Thuy came into this lifetime she was interested in having a great adventure. She wanted to jump around a lot – either move physically or travel. Try lots of different things and don’t be stuck in a single thing. It’s her desire to open to many different joyous experiences.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Thuy and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Help With Depression

This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks The Council for guidance on overcoming depression. They have been using meditation, guided journals, therapy, and medication for years, but just can’t shake this condition. Typically they’re okay when they’re busy, but at other times like now, the situation is unbearably difficult.

The Council suggests when you start feeling depressed you should pay attention to your thoughts. Your thoughts will either lead you into depression or help you come out of it. In your case it’s good to keep as busy as possible. If you’re not working to keep busy, try taking classes, reading, and meditation.

When you meditate, ask to feel your heart energy. This will lift your spirits.

When you don’t feel as good as you’d like, acknowledge this feeling. Then take control by changing your thoughts to better feeling ones. Find something you like about yourself or something you’ve accomplished. Go into old memories that feel good. As you change these heavier thoughts you can begin to change the thoughts that bring on the depression. This will take work on your part, but you’re able to do it.

If you feel some relief from medication, this belief that medication is helping will assist you. You can use medication for a while to lift your energy and still begin to change your thoughts to better feeling ones. This medication would be until you feel better. Once you acknowledge these better feelings you’ll remember them. When you get depressed and change your thoughts and reach for these better feelings, this is how you’ll work your way out of depression.

Anonymous says they understand their negative emotions are creating the depression, but they have difficulty staying positive. The Council says in the beginning you’ll be able to change your thoughts only occasionally, and as you’re able to do this the thoughts will grow and you’ll not have to consistently feel depressed. You are retraining yourself how to focus your attention, and this focus is what you’ll create in your life.

Anonymous asks how they’re able to experience all the good things they’ve created for themselves? The Council says by naming them and being grateful for each one. As you find things to be grateful for, everything begins to change for the better.

The Council’s parting words are to look within yourself for your inner light and meditate on your heart. Picture a little light growing there. This is part of who you are. You are more than your physical body. You are also a wondrous spirit that is light and love. As you look within for this light, you will find it.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.
