Preoccupation with a Past Lifetime Hinders Progress in Your Current Lifetime

This post answers some follow-up questions for The Council from a reader named Kimberly. In her original post she asked about a twin flame and was told about a lifetime around 1600 in England where she was a man who left his family. The Council asks Kimberly what she’s learned from the last post and what does she understand now? Have you received clarity to help you move forward?

Kimberly asks what happened to one of her children from this previous lifetime? The Council says it lived out it’s life and is currently in another lifetime, but this lifetime is unrelated to Kimberly’s life. Kimberly says she’d really like to give birth to the soul of this child in her current lifetime and The Council says giving birth to this soul was not agreed to for Kimberly’s current lifetime.

Kimberly says she feels horrible about abandoning her family in her past lifetime and The Council interrupts and says if she feels horrible about this, she hasn’t learned it’s lesson. Everything Kimberly went through in this previous lifetime was pre-planned in spirit. Kimberly leaving the family was something the spirits who played the wife and children in this previous lifetime wanted to experience so they could learn their own lessons.

When Kimberly feels horrible, it’s just unnecessary guilt she puts on herself because she completed what she planned in that lifetime. Each spirit, including Kimberly, was very happy at the conclusion of this past lifetime. You did what you wanted to do as a spiritual being. From a spiritual point of view there wasn’t any abandonment. You left because you had other lessons to learn in a different lifestyle, and your wife and children needed to learn different lessons without you being in their lives.

The Council suggests if Kimberly still feels horrible about leaving her family in this previous lifetime, she needs to read more of our other posts and get to a place where she understands that the most difficult experiences in life are pre-planned in spirit. It’s an experience you all want to learn from and then go on with your life. When that life ends you come back to spirit and greet each other and plan a new life. She’s looking at what happened in this past life from her personality’s point of view (in her current life), rather than seeing her past life circumstances from a more spiritual point of view.

The Council doesn’t recommend Kimberly spend much time thinking about this past lifetime. They say she’s trying to fix that lifetime and that’s not necessary. Holding onto that life will hinder her progress in her current life. She’s in her current life to concentrate on what’s going on in her current life. She’s not here to go back and find out more about her past life, and beat herself up, and wait for these souls to all show up again in her current lifetime. That isn’t the purpose of her current lifetime.

Kimberly asks what were the names of her wife and children in this past life and what town they were buried in so she can visit their graves. The Council says knowing this information just keeps her focused on this past lifetime instead of focusing on her current life. They repeat that for Kimberly it’s not a good idea to hold onto this past life.

Is Kimberly happy in her current lifetime? If not, what’s she doing to change this life? You do not change your current life by trying to go back and fix a previous life. You try to heal your current life. You try to create with your thoughts and visualizations where you’d like this lifetime to go. That is your purpose right now.

In the original session Kimberly was told that one of the children from this previous lifetime would be her partner in her current lifetime and she asks how she’ll know it’s him and what is his name? The Council says when a young person comes into her life and has a great sense of humor and a very light and happy way of seeing things, this will be the soul from the previous life.

In the closing The Council mentions to Bob and Cynthia to keep up their good work, to which Bob replies, “We’ll try.” And The Council laughs and quotes a great spiritual teacher (Yoda from the Star Wars movies) who says, “There is no try, there is only do.”

Listen to our entire 9-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Kimberly and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

How Can I Improve My Relationship with My Son and His Anger?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who asks how she can improve her relationship with her 5-year old son who’s quick to anger. Anonymous says she tries to meet her son’s anger with patience and love, but she’s burning out.

The Council says this is a difficult journey for Anonymous. The soul of her son planned to come in with a lot of anger and have this anger most of his life. The meanness and violence he can show is something that’s been agreed to in spirit by the people he comes in contact with. And her son chose to be this way to teach the people around him how to show gentleness and kindness when they’re affected by someone like him.

The Council recommends spending a lot of one on one time with her son.

Her son has chosen music to make him feel better and The Council recommends she play music for him, particularly classical music like Beethoven and particularly at night before bed, and have him create movement to this music. This should help him deal with his anger. And The Council advises trying to keep him in small groups rather than larger ones.

Learn to be kind and gentle with your son’s behavior, but teach him what’s acceptable behavior and always show that you’re loving him. You may not approve of his actions or words, but inside there’s a very brave soul that wants to be accepted and also taught how to be.

The Council repeats that her son’s behavior was agreed to in spirit and asks her not to become upset with him. He wants to learn about frustration and not being understood, and then being understood by people who are capable of teaching him.

Part of her son’s brain will have a difficult time understanding what he’s being taught because he’ll be overcome with feelings of frustration. When this happens she must remember this is her lesson also and she must learn how to handle his feelings. This is a new experience for her that was also agreed to in spirit.

The Council recommends Anonymous meditate and find time for herself. They add that counseling for her to help deal with her son may be necessary. And they also recommend reading books on past lives to learn about difficult lessons and challenges . This lesson touches everyone in the family because everyone wanted to bring love into this reality no matter how difficult it was.

Anonymous asks what she and her son are here to teach each other in this lifetime? The Council says her son is confused and this will bring on outbursts and behavior that’s unacceptable. When his behavior isn’t acceptable, it’s good for whoever’s with him to talk about this with him and how there are more acceptable ways of handling his frustration rather than with outbursts or being mean. Explain, in very short sentences, how your son can change his behavior.

Anonymous says she’s begun to think of her son as mean, and even though she realizes this is unfair and unhelpful, it’s difficult for her to find evidence to the contrary. The Council says it’s not horrible that Anonymous notices her son is mean. This is exactly what she is supposed to be doing. When this happens, talk to your son about his behavior and teach him more desirable ways to get what he wants. This is what’s needed.

The Council suggests hand holding and touch will become important to her son. Go slowly. As you take the time, you’ll see progress. It’s an important lesson for everyone around your son to become kinder and more understanding. As this occurs you’ll begin to see positive changes because everyone that volunteered for this lesson will be learning.

In closing The Council encouraged us to keep up our good work, to which Bob replied that we’ll try. The Council laughed and quoted a great spiritual teacher (Yoda from the Star Wars movies) who says, “There is no try, there is only do.” And they add they will help us do.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us on ways to help deal with a child’s anger, and let us know how you feel about it.

Who’s the Man Who Gives Advice in My Shamanic Journeys?

This post answers questions for The Council from Malia, who says she keeps seeing a man in her shamanic journeys who provides great advice and comfort. She’s asked who he is, but she’s not sure she’s interpreting the answer correctly, or if she’s even supposed to know. She says maybe it’s not the same guy every time. Is it a spirit guide? A long distance soul mate? A part of my soul that didn’t incarnate? Malia says she’d like to know.

The Council says this is a spirit guide who’s able to come in different forms and will appear the way she needs him to appear. The Council sees a guide who’ll be with Malia throughout this entire lifetime and will guide her through different experiences that will teach her much more than she can learn from a book or a human teacher.

Spirit guides don’t have names in spirit, but they often they create a name so humans will feel more comfortable speaking with them. Malia’s guide wants her to know he’ll respond to the name, Jeremiah.

Everyone has guides that come in and out of their lives. If you’re learning about medicine there’ll be guides that have knowledge of medicine that pop in at a particular time. Or if you’re learning about gardening, a spirit will drop in to teach you about that. But Jeremiah will be with Malia for her entire lifetime.

The Council advises not focusing on what your spirit guide looks like or it’s name, but focus on what you feel while it’s there. That’s the answer of who your spirit guide truly is, which is love.

In their closing The Council advised us to keep up the good work, and Bob answered that we’ll try. The Council laughed and quoted a great spiritual teacher who said, “There is no try, there is only do.” – Yoda, from Star Wars (the movie).

Listen to our entire 4-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Malia and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What Is My Life Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Merry, who asks what her main purposes are for this lifetime, or if there’s a thematic purpose between all her lives.

The Council says it’s not necessary to know about past lives unless you’re working out something you’re trying to heal or experience and you need that extra bit of information. The reason you don’t remember your other lives is that it’s not necessary to remember them. You come into your current lifetime planning to concentrate on what you’re creating in your current lifetime.

The Council says we always have things from past lives that we work on in our current lifetime, but sometimes it’s not necessary to reach into another lifetime to find the answer, unless you’ve tried many things and still feel there’s something missing, or the answers to help you grow or see your path clearer aren’t happening without some other lifetime information.

The Council sees the main reason for Merry’s current lifetime is to meet a lot of people and try to see, especially if the people are difficult, beyond these peoples’ challenges, and to learn from this and then move on. They say she doesn’t intend for these relationships to be long lasting.

What was experienced when you were a child are experiences that are just passing. Can you look at your parents and other family members and see what you’ve learned? You are a spirit and don’t need to feel abandoned, less than, or unwanted. Look at each relationship and ask yourself what are you learning from it? Things that you’ve experienced that you might call negative, aren’t negative; they’re just experiences you want to learn from.

The Council says Merry’s current life is wide open and to just experience the in and out of her relationships. As she looks at her life this way, The Council says she’s able to have quite a bit of fun with it and learn at a quick pace, and then create different experiences that she’d like to bring into her current lifetime.

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

What’s the Purpose of Nazi Holocaust Victim’s Suffering?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Juan, who asks if the spirits of the Nazi Holocaust victims were aware they agreed to be worked, tortured, and starved to death?

The Council says the spirits of Holocaust victims all volunteered to come into that lifetime to play those roles. They knew in spirit before they came there was going to be a mass crisis to teach millions of people what happens when you aren’t in the vibration of love.

The victims knew ahead of time it was going to be a difficult life, but they also knew that lifetime would create opportunities for learning for every soul who lived during that time. And the history that was made will be passed down to future generations who weren’t there to experience it.

Many spirits who where Holocaust victims held the light for everyone who was there. Many came to be with the children who were victims. These brave souls had no idea what they were going to face in that lifetime, but they knew they’d come through it with as much love and caring as possible.

Juan asks The Council, if the Holocaust victims agreed to the horrors they faced, what was the purpose of going through this? The Council says the purpose was to bring in more love and caring and to learn that no matter how bad things get, you have the choice how you’ll face your challenges. The victims found a way to feel love and take care of each other, and to believe more in something greater than themselves. And this lesson spread throughout the world.

Juan asks if the Holocaust was due to a karmic debt and The Council says there is no karmic debt. It was just souls that realized in this world that’s being created, what can we do to bring more love in?

Juan asks what possible benefit can come from the atrocities of the Holocaust? The Council says the benefit that we learn from the experience, never forget what happened, and learn you are so much more than what you think.

Juan’s last question is, what is the purpose of coming to this material dimension to suffer pain, anguish, and agony. The Council says we don’t come to Earth to suffer these things; we come to have a good time. And even though we go through horrible times, when we decided to go through this in spirit we weren’t afraid of it because we knew we’d be coming home to spirit again. This is something we’re going through to learn from. How will we help each other out while we’re here and what will we take back to spirit with us?

The Council closes by reminding us that you always come into the Earth reality with the thought that no matter what happens, I will find a way to show love and change the reality to a more loving one. What can I do to face these challenges? Will I remember who I really am as a spirit in a physical body? Will I choose joy and love? Will I be compassionate no matter what I’m going through? And when I bring more love into this reality, when my time there is over, I’ll have done what I set out to do.

Listen to our entire 12-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Juan and the rest of us on the Holocaust, and let us know how you feel about it.

What if My Interest in Spirit as a Distraction from “Reality”

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Malia, who says her navel chakra feels weak, my will feels blocked, and I’m overly enmeshed with my family.

The Council says the reason for Malia’s blocked third or navel chakra is in many prior lives she had to do what she was told in her families. She had no say in what direction her life went. In her current lifetime it’s Malia’s intention to heal this situation. She wants to feel independent and make her own decisions.

The Council says Malia has created a situation where she’s enmeshed with her family and now she needs to figure out what’s going on in her day to day life rather than focusing so much on her navel chakra. Is there a way she’s able to handle her circumstances differently? Is she able to make protective boundaries so she doesn’t feel herself getting pulled into everyone’s world? The Council says the reason Malia’s having this experience right now is so she can learn from it and change it.

The Council says the reason Malia’s enmeshed with her family is her day to day choices. Her greatest power in the current lifetime she’s creating is her minute to minute decisions. Why does she allow herself to be pulled in to her family’s drama? Why does she create these experiences? By looking at her circumstances she’ll be able to find new ways to deal with them. She’s created these situations to learn independence, to speak for herself, make decisions, and make boundaries. Boundaries is a big lesson for her in this lifetime.

Malia says she feels insecure about her capacity to be independent. The Council says she has the capacity, the power, and the strength to be independent. That is what she’s chosen to learn in this lifetime. She’s created situations where she does’t feel independent so she can learn to overcome them.

Malia says she’s afraid she’s using her interest in spirit as a scapegoat rather than working on the reality she’s manifesting. The Council says spirit isn’t Malia’s scapegoat. As she meditates or intuitively pays attention to feelings and ideas that come to her, that is her higher self helping handle her challenges. This isn’t using spirit as a scapegoat. This is learning from her higher self.

Bob suggests Malia may mean she’s using her interest in spirit to keep from focusing on day to day choices The Council asked her to focus on. The Council says when you realize who you truly are as a spirit in a physical body, that is the most important thing. Your day to day choices becomes clearer when you understand this.

Bob asks The Council if they can think of a reason why Malia might be having this fear of working on her reality and having spirit as a scapegoat? The Council says the desire to stand up to people, be independent, face confrontation, and learn to say no are with Malia from other lifetimes. Rather than face these situations on a day to day basis she can believe that concentrating on spirit doesn’t allow her to change the experiences she’s having.

Intuitively Malia knows she has to face these challenges because this is what she’s created them for. The part of her that’s afraid to face these challenges will concentrate on what she thinks of as spirit and takes her away from what she has to do to have a different experience.

The Council recommends daily meditation, even if it’s only five minutes, and coming up with affirmations that remind her who she truly is as a spirit in a physical body. Read about spirit and the reason we’re here on Earth. As she feels more in tune with who she is, she’ll be able to handle her day to day experiences. Family and other relationships will become clearer.

Listen to our entire 11-minute audio session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Malia and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

A Past Life Reason for My Mother’s Poor Treatment of Me?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, who wants to know if there’s a past life reason for her mother’s poor treatment of her.

She says her mother kept her hair very short and wouldn’t allow her to wear dresses. When people called her a little boy her mother would laugh and say she didn’t have time to deal with long hair. She was bullied at school and her parents just expected her to deal with it. Any negative reaction she had was perceived as wrong by her parents and she felt bullied by them. Both of them made fun of every picture of her throughout her life. She felt she had to participate in the activities her parents wanted to gain their approval, but never enjoyed what she was doing.

The Council asks ImportantOrNotBlog to look at the way she feels now, because this is what she planned to learn how to deal with in this lifetime. They ask how it feels to be put down, to be made fun of her looks, and whatever you do isn’t acceptable or enough. How does she imagine it feels to be looked down upon?

The Council says in another lifetime, they believe in France, ImportantOrNotBlog was born to nobility, was very beautiful, and you felt no one around you was up to your standards. You had a way of having the people around you feel less than what they were and not accepted. The people around you thought you were beautiful and smart, and tried to be there for you in a caring way, and yet you only saw these people as annoying and boring.

The Council asks ImportantOrNotBlog to look at her current life. How are her parents treating her? Do they make you feel less than? Do they make you feel unaccepted and not smart? Do they make fun of you?

You had asked in your current lifetime to experience the other side of your previous lifetime in France. What have you learned from this and how do you treat other people as you move forward?

The Council says her parents in her current lifetime have agreed in spirit to treat her the way she describes. They add she’s experiencing the flip side of the coin of her lifetime in France and it’s just an experience she wanted to have. The Council says as she understands this and treats people around her better, including her parents who didn’t treat her properly, this poor treatment will fall away. She will have more understanding and she’ll get along with her parents and the people around her.

Imagine what you created in the lifetime in France and what it felt like, and being the wonderful spirit that you are you wanted to heal this. The Council advises you to be the person who can’t understand why all of this went on, but still doesn’t treat people the way she did in her other lifetime, and comes from a good place within her heart as she moves forward.

ImportantOrNotBlog says she wants to start over and The Council advises her to take the knowledge she received in this post and work with it and she’ll see her life start over.

The Council closes by saying ImportantOrNotBlog can know that what she’s experienced in her current life isn’t from a lack of beauty or talent or not being accepted. She is playing her life out the way she planned in spirit so she could understand it better. The suffering you are experiencing in this lifetime isn’t your fault and it’s not because you’re a bad person.

You bravely came into your current lifetime to see what the lifetime in France was all about. Can you get to a point where you can see your parents and not blame them and feel anger, hate, or confusion towards them, but thank them for agreeing to play this role with you so you can feel better about yourself. Once you learn how to do this, feelings will change because you have seen what’s going on in a different way. You have seen it from the point of view of your higher self and when you accept yourself as the wonderful being you are, the rest will fall away.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for ImportantOrNotBlog and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Did I Create a Portal in My Bedroom?

This post answers questions for The Council by a reader named Malia, who says she thinks there’s an energetic portal in her bedroom and she’d like to know if she created this portal.

The Council says a portal is usually a doorway to another reality. They say when you dream or work with energy, you don’t have to go through a doorway and it isn’t needed. At night when you astral travel while you’re asleep you don’t go through a portal. The soul merely lifts from the body and travels.

The Council sees a lot of energy where Malia lives because of what she carries in her aura and the work she does. Don’t look for a portal; you are a spirit and a portal isn’t needed. People believe there’s a portal because it makes them feel special. You can create a portal with your beliefs, but they don’t see this is something Malia has done.

The Council asks Malia to continue the work she does and her travels without the limit of having to go through a portal. You are a limitless spirit and can travel anywhere by just thinking about it. Bless your entire home and know it’s filled with the energy of source that you’re part of. You have the ability to connect with energy, to ask for information, and to travel with your mind without the need of a portal.

The Council recommends Malia try connecting inwardly in other areas of her home and she’ll find it’s the same as her bedroom. Wherever she is she has the ability to connect and feel the energy and call it in. You are capable of all this without being in a special place where you go through a portal. This is what you must learn at this time.

Malia closes by saying if she did make a portal is there a way to take care of it other than seeing the higher intentions. The Council says if Malia feels she’s created this portal, the best thing they see for her to do is surround the portal with beautiful energy, have good thoughts when you’re in that area, and fill this part of your home with the energy of love and joy.

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

Twin Flames, Twin Souls, and Soulmates – What’s the Difference?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Kimberly, who asks when was the last time she incarnated with her twin flame.

The Council says a twin soul, which is another name for twin flame, is part of your higher self and not an aspect of another spirit. The twin flame incarnates as a part of your higher self to shake up your life. It’s not usually a partner, but someone that jumps in and out of your life and forces you to grow. It’s sort of a mirror that shows you your beliefs and helps when you’re stuck.

Sometimes your relationship with your twin soul is a rough one and you don’t get along. Other times your twin soul will be very supportive. The twin soul always comes to help you get unstuck. Many people think the twin soul is a romantic relationship, but this isn’t its purpose.

A soulmate is someone you’ve worked with over many lifetimes and there’s a spiritual agreement to have a very close relationship in your current lifetime. Whether it’s a marriage or a close relationship, a soulmate comes from a different spirit than your own and has agreed to come in and help you. The twin soul or twin flame is someone that you’ve created from a part of your own higher self.

The Council says they feel Kimberly is asking about a soulmate even though she uses the words, twin flame. But they feel it’s necessary for her to hear an explanation for the twin flame because she needs to look at her life and see that she’s brought one in. Is it a close relationship? Is it someone who pushes her buttons? Is it a teacher who helps her go in another direction?

The twin flame appears as a separate person who comes in and out of your life or is in your life for a short period of time, but is really an aspect of your higher self that’s here to help you move on. The Council believes Kimberly’s original question is asking about a romantic soulmate from two lifetimes ago, as opposed to a twin flame, but they feel it’s important for her to explore her current lifetime, look for her twin flame, and ask herself what she is trying to teach herself.

Kimberly asks if anything tragic happened with her twin flame in this previous life and The Council is clear in their answer that they’re talking about a soulmate in a previous life, not a twin flame. They see a life in England during the 1600s. Kimberly was the husband in that lifetime, he had two children, worked as a traveling cloth tradesman, and the tragedy was that although he had a loving family, he abandoned them for an opportunity to sail to different ports and trade his goods.

The Council says in Kimberly’s current lifetime there may be a focus on healing the abandonment from the previous lifetime and learning how the female partner in that lifetime felt. She may be searching for the perfect partner in her current lifetime, but has difficulty finding it because of the abandonment in the previous lifetime. She can heal this by being gentle in her current lifetime, considerate, and having a permanent relationship where she no longer wants to run away.

Bob asks if there’s a relationship in Kimberly’s current lifetime with the wife or children from the previous lifetime. The Council says there was an agreement with one of the children to be the partner Kimberly’s looking for so healing can take place, but this hasn’t happened yet.

The Council says before Kimberly goes looking for her partner she should concentrate on the twin flame who’s in her life to shake it up, teach her to open her heart and mind, and look at things differently. Once this happens then she can concentrate on what she’d bring to the relationship she desires. Then she can look for the joy wherever she can find it because there was a lot of hardship in the past life.

Kimberly asks if her twin flame (which The Council believes she means her soulmate) will be there when she crosses over. The Council says the souls you need to see at the time you cross over will be there for you and you’ll recognize them.

Kimberly closes by asking if her twin flame (read soulmate) has any messages for her. The Council says their message is to stay in the vibration of love, show it to yourself first, be kind to yourself, and explore who you are. There’s so much more you can find out about who you truly are and what you’re able to do in this lifetime. Pay attention to your dreams and watch them unfold.

Listen to the entire 17-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Kimberly and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Should I Stay In My Marriage or Leave with My Child?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name SoulPeace, who says she needs to choose between staying in a marriage that isn’t working out well and trying to make it better, or walk out of the marriage with their child.

The Council asks SoulPeace what part they’re playing in this marriage? Is she adding to the difficulties that are coming up? When you step back and look at this relationship the major question is, why isn’t the marriage working? What do you need from this marriage and what are you bringing to it? Do you feel the love you felt in the beginning of this relationship?

The choice is always yours whether to leave the marriage or stay with it, but the work must begin within you first. Look at what you have without blame, then try to decide what you’d like your marriage to look like. If you can focus on the marriage working and be open to the positive changes, then you can make this marriage work. As you begin to change how you treat your husband, how you speak to him, and how you appreciate the little things he might do, The Council says you can stay in this marriage lovingly.

SoulPeace says she’s always been scared of living on her own and taking on all the responsibilities of caring for their child. She doesn’t feel the love for her husband the last few years. The Council asks if she’s able to partner with him in bringing up their child? Are they able to get together and have fun with this child so it has a more loving life? When you’re able to come together and take the focus off what the other person is doing wrong and you’re in the vibration of love and joy even though the focus is your child, you have the ability to make the marriage better.

SoulPeace says she feels like she’s with her husband because it’s the more traditional option and she’s scared to live on her own. She finds it difficult to forget the things that happened in the past. The Council reminds SoulPeace that it’s a choice to take the focus off the past. When do you let go of this? When do you begin looking forward instead of backward? Have you learned from the mistakes you’ve made? What have you done to prevent these mistakes from continuing? If you decide to stay in this marriage, but continue with blaming your husband and stay in the vibration of anger and hurt, you won’t be able to change your future so you have a happy life.

If you decide you want to save your marriage, try thinking the reason you’ve gone through the dissatisfaction in your marriage is that you and your husband agreed to come to this point and then ask yourself if you can turn your marriage around. If you decide to leave, what are the steps you’d take to support your child and live on your own just the two of you? See this how you want it to be rather than out of fear. Visualize how leaving could work for you.

SoulPeace says she feels like she’s coming back to the same point in the relationship over and over. She’d like closure to this and to move ahead in any direction which is best for her and her child. The Council asks SoulPeace if she’s truly looking for closure or does she want to fix the marriage?

To start closure The Council suggests SoulPeace imagine where she and her child would go and how you’d live. If you want to change your marriage for the better The Council suggests letting go of the past. Maybe your husband doesn’t know how to undo what was done or fix the marriage, but perhaps you can discuss moving forward. Can you leave the past in the past?

Discuss how you’d like your marriage to be. What does your husband want the marriage to be like going forward? When memories come of what your husband did or didn’t do in your marriage that hurt you, acknowledge the hurt and then say goodbye to those thoughts. After a while those thoughts won’t come as frequently. Yes these things happened, but now you have an opportunity to create the future differently. You have the power to refocus on a happier thought and create the life you desire.

The Council closes by saying SoulPeace has a lot of work to do and a wonderful journey in whichever direction she chooses.

Listen to the entire 10-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for SoulPeace and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Career Advice

This  post answers a career advice question for The Council from a reader named Anthony, who says his employment involves the prevention of violence and death. Recently, after leading a response to a crisis that was felt across his country, he feels bored with his normal responsibilities and asks The Council if they see him moving on to a larger role in emergency and crisis response, or perhaps something else?

The Council says working in a crisis center is a loving and compassionate way to help others, but they ask what Anthony is doing right now to bring more peace and balance into his own life and ask him to take a look at this.

The Council sees in the near future a change of location is needed and they suggest if Anthony focuses on this he’ll be able to achieve it.

The Council says Anthony’s talent is working directly with people who are facing problems rather than doing paper work and they suggest he focus on this. Surround himself with the people who will benefit from his presence.

The Council sees within one or two years there will be a very big move where he’ll be handling groups and organizing the help that’s needed on a larger scale. When this time comes, The Council advises Anthony to keep working directly with people who need help. That’s the kind of healing he wishes to do in his life and his healing energy is needed by many.

Bob asked for clarification on the point about Anthony bringing balance into his life. The Council said steps are needed right now to withdraw from his work for a while, perhaps take a vacation or do something else that’s not related to his work. As Anthony takes time for himself, this allows his spirit to bring in more information and healing energy that he’ll need. After he’s given this time to himself he’ll feel better about giving to others.  And The Council wishes Anthony well in his work and they say it’s very important.

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

You’re Already the Spirit You Desire to Be

This post answers questions from a reader named Darla, who says she’s heard the reason we’re here on Earth is to raise our vibration and become more like the source or creator. and she asks if we originally came from source, why aren’t we already at that higher level?

The Council says you’re already at this higher level of source, but when you agreed to come into this Earth reality and create your life, you agreed to come down to the lower energy that’s in this reality. And by sharing the vibration of love, understanding, and compassion, you bring this energy from source and spread it into this Earth reality in order to lift it up.

When you are born into this Earth reality there is a forgetfulness, but it’s always your intention, as you go through either a wonderful life or a challenging life, to get to a point where you can remember you are so much more than your physical body.

Often you find it difficult to believe you are spirit in your physical body, but your higher self provides you with many experiences of this and you start to believe there’s something more. When you think something and there’s a desire and you are happy, the right people, job, and circumstances come along. Maybe you’re not at the point where you believe you’re spirit, but you’re opening to the idea there’s something more than what you experience physically.

Darla says she can’t understand the point about all these lives and lessons. The Council says all these lives and lessons are created by her as a spiritual being. Sometimes you incarnate in order to have certain experiences. Sometimes you’ve already had this experience, but you agree to help other spirits who incarnate to deal with whatever this experience involves. This will provide you with a better sense of what you’re going through, but you may not remember it was your agreement to come in and help others.

Darla asks if we’ll ever reach a point of not having to return for more lives. The Council says this can happen whenever you feel you’re ready for that. The choice to come back and have life after life is entirely up to you. You can choose to remain in spirit and help others by sending them the vibration of love, happiness, and joy.

The Council makes clear that it’s up to Darla, in spirit, whether she incarnates on Earth or not. They say there’s no other way to get here. You have to agree in spirit that you want it. No one forces you. It’s always your choice.

Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Darla and the rest of us. We feel this session contains valuable information for anyone trying to make sense of there life. Let us know how you feel about it.

What Happens Spiritually When Someone Commits Suicide?

This post answers questions for The Council by a reader who goes by the name, Lone Creator, who asks what happens when a spirit prematurely exits its incarnation because it doesn’t like the lessons it’s chosen?

The Council says you never stop learning, even if you don’t understand your situation while still in your physical incarnation. If you choose to end your current lifetime by suicide or by creating an incurable disease, The Council says this isn’t a problem.

Sometimes because your life and the lessons you chose involve other people, another spirit can come in and take your place so that these other people can continue their lessons. This is agreed upon in spirit before you come into this reality. When Bob asked for clarification on this point, The Council said in spirit you discuss with your guides what you’d like to create in your lifetime so they can help you with this. Sometimes your guides will advise you that you’ve planned too much, but they have to step back and let you create what you desire.

When you plan a lot and your guides question whether you’ll be able to accomplish what you intended even with their help, and you decide to prematurely leave your body, there’s the question of what happens to the other people in your life that are counting on you to help them finish their lessons. In this situation you are needed and so another spirit comes in to take your place and allows these people to continue with their lesson.

The Council says this doesn’t happen very often, but spirit substitution is a possibility. The spirit enters the same body, other people won’t know there’s been a change, and you won’t remember another spirit has come in to finish your life.

The Council says you always have the choice to complete this life early. When you desire to give up a particular lifetime, you’ll create something in your life that will end it prematurely. You can develop a disease, have an accident, or create a suicide. You can find a way out of your life, but The Council adds that most of the time you try and finish what you originally intended.

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

Why Someone Would Choose to be Born with a Cognitive Disability

This post answers Pakt’s question for The Council about why someone would choose to be born with a cognitive disability. She works in a classroom with students who have these disabilities and read that people with Down Syndrome committed suicide in another lifetime.

The Council says people can choose a cognitive disability just for the experience and to understand what this feels like. In another lifetime if someone they knew had this disability and they didn’t show understanding and love, perhaps they’d choose to experience it in this lifetime and to see if they can bring love into it.

And sometimes people will choose a cognitive disability to teach the people around them about this disability. They do not choose to experience a cognitive disability because they’ve committed suicide in another lifetime.

Pakt says she always thought people choose to experience a cognitive disability so the rest of us can learn from these people as opposed to these people learning a lesson. The Council says these people with disabilities also learn. When we choose different experiences, whether they are happy ones or challenging ones, we also choose the people that will go through this with us because of what they want to learn and we can help them. But The Council says we always want to learn from having the experience of a cognitive difficulty or some other difficulty. There is a learning on everyone’s part.

Listen to this brief 2-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Pakt and the rest of us on why someone would choose to experience a cognitive difficulty in this lifetime, and let us know how you feel about it.

What About Evil People?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Trying To Learn, who asks about people who do bad or evil things on Earth, such as serial killers, mass shooters, and dictators who commit genocide.

The Council says, somewhat surprisingly, that people who do these so-called bad things have agreed to this in spirit with all souls involved so that each soul can have the experience they desire on Earth, which apparently includes learning lessons from what these ‘bad’ people have done.

The Council says these souls agree to go through acting bad to teach other souls the lesson of how to stay in love and protect one another. And when this isn’t done, learning the lesson of how things can get out of hand. Then it’s the choice of each soul to work with their higher self to bring peace and love into this situation and remember we’re all souls here to support each other.

The Council says the souls that agree to be the most horrible people have agreed to this to teach a major lesson that thousands or millions of people wish to learn because they wish to learn together how to change this situation.

From a spiritual point of view there aren’t any bad people. The question is how can we support each other to stay in the vibration of love by rescuing one another, caring for one another, and by changing the situation for the better, having it end, and then experiencing what we have gone through and learned from it. And this knowledge becomes part of the collective whole and every soul, whether you were in this Earthly reality when it happened or still in spirit, will learn from this situation.

Trying To Learn asks if the spirits of these ‘bad’ people interact with the spirits of those whose death they facilitated. The Council says as we all come together in spirit, there’s a great appreciation for what these ‘bad’ people have done. In spirit these people held up their agreement of what was supposed to happen. They played their part. And as all spirits continue to look back on what’s happened and learn from it, there is only peace and love on the part of each spirit. In this light Bob asks if the spirit of Adolf Hitler is regarded very well by other spirits and The Council says, “Exactly”.

Trying To Learn (Bob incorrectly identifies her as Audrey on the recording) asks if these ‘bad’ people receive any sort of punishment when they return to spirit. The Council says the only punishment they’d receive would be something that is self inflicted. If they don’t remember their agreement with all the souls involved, they might feel guilty and not understand that what they created was very acceptable and many lessons were learned.

If the souls of these ‘bad’ people can’t let go of a past reality and are stuck in the emotions and personality they played while on Earth, they can choose to create punishment for themselves. Bob asks for an example of what a punishment might be.  The Council says, as some people believe, there’s a Hell and you’ll be forever in darkness. Some people’s Hell would be abandonment. There’s the well known version of Hell where you’re in fire. Whatever you believe Hell is, you can experience this because you’ll create it, until at some point you realize this isn’t the way it’s supposed to be. It’s an illusion you’re temporarily stuck in.

You’d realize it’s an illusion because there are other souls around you that would try and help you through this by sending you higher vibrations of love and acceptance. When you finally allow this love and acceptance and begin to feel it, you’ll let go of the personality you were and the role you played. Then you’ll be able to come together with other spirits and learn from this experience.

Trying To Learn asks if the soul of these ‘bad’ people has a choice to reincarnate and if they do, will they be punished on Earth. The Council says these souls always have the choice to reincarnate. Why they reincarnate would be up to them. They can create a wonderful reality. Or they can choose to redo some horrible experience from another lifetime. Trying To Learn closes by saying, “Or is there no punishment,” and The Council says there isn’t any punishment.

Listen to the entire 8-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Trying To Learn and the rest of us. It’s a very interesting session. And let us know what you think.
