Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Is a Drive-By Shooting Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This is a follow-up question for The Council from a reader named, Pakt, who previously asked the question, Is Human Abortion a Violation of Nature? In their current question they quote The Council, who says in the post on abortion that you create everything you experience. Pakt goes on to say, “Hypothetically, let’s say I’m killed in a drive-by shooting. This creates hardship and grief for my family. So this would be a wanted event in spirit?”

The Council says, yes, this event was planned in spirit. What does your family want to learn from this experience? What did the person who was killed learn from this experience? What does the person who commits the murder learn from this? Each person will have their own lesson. In spirit, before coming into this lifetime, the experience of this drive-by shooting was spoken about by all the spirits involved.

Everything that’s planned in spirit is something that’s wanted to be learned from. Perhaps the family of the person that was killed wants to learn forgiveness. Perhaps the killer wants to change his life completely and learn to forgive himself, and show kindness, and do good works for others. There are many, many reasons this sort of situation is created. In spirit everyone is excited by the opportunity to bring love into this situation.

Pakt says it seems to them that planning this murder in spirit absolves the killer of any wrong doing. The Council says there isn’t any absolving of wrong doing because this experience is agreed upon in spirit. The lessons go deeper in this sort of situation.

Pakt asks if the concepts of good, bad, right, and wrong are human constructs, but no such concepts exist in spirit? After some more discussion of what was learned by this shooting, The Council says in spirit there is only right, no wrong or bad. Everything is simple in spirit. When you get into our physical reality things become difficult, and that’s how we grow.

The Council asks us to try and see the murderer as someone who’s playing out what was agreed to in spirit. There’s more discussion about what’s learned from this shooting by all parties involved, and the suggestion that as we learn more we can begin to see this shooting from the point of love.

The Council says good, bad, right, and wrong are human constructs. Only good exists in spirit and we are here on the Earth path to try and bring the good that exists in spirit into our physical reality.

The Council closes by saying we don’t have to accept the murder as right or wrong, but they ask us how we can bring more understanding into this situation.

We found The Council to be clear on their answer that this hypothetical drive-by shooting was planned in spirit. And they were clear on good, bad, right, and wrong being human constructs. The Council is also clear this shooting is a learning experience, but maybe because this is a hypothetical situation, The Council wasn’t able to provide the specificity we’ve come to expect from them.

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

  2. Dear Bob Cynthia and the Council, I’m hoping you can offer me some insight because I am at a loss. Here is a little background before my question. At the beginning of my relationship with my wife, we experienced some very traumatic events. My wife felt very isolated during these events and felt as though she had no control over the situation and no support. During this time, I was experiencing my own crisis (taking care of my aging mother, and beginning a new job.) This is why I was not there for my wife. This was several years ago and she is still suffering. Since then, she has been reliving the events daily, fallen into a very deep depression and expresses suicidal thoughts. We have tried everything to help her and nothing has worked. She blames herself constantly, and when she’s not blaming herself, she blames me even though I have apologized and I am genuinely sorry for my part in these events. She is not able to let go or forgive and she describes herself as an empty shell. I believe what you say about being a spiritual being in a physical reality and I believe that my wife and I are soul-mates who have shared other lifetimes. So my question is- Did my wife and I share a traumatic past life together? Are we in this reality to heal the events of that past life? What is our purpose as a couple in this life? I feel it has something to do with our daughter.

    Thank you for your wisdom.

  3. This is really interesting! I was just thinking of asking a similar question. It’s definitely difficult to change one’s mindset to think in those terms.

  4. I’ve discovered that in the moment of extreme pain, all we can do is make it through an experience. And with time and as the pain wanes, as I’ve been able to find different ways to look at something, it changes how I feel about it, allowing more acceptance to flow through me. Thank you Bob, Cynthia and the Council for bringing a healing change of perspective.
