Learning About Spirituality, but Has Fears and Doubts

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Lola, who’s been trying to learn about spirituality, but now she’s filled with fears, doubts, and questions that override the feelings of joy and peace she previously felt from learning about spirit.

The Council says the most important thing for Lola is to learn about herself. They advise her to meditate on the fact that she is spirit. As spirit you volunteer to come into this lifetime and work through different lessons and experiences to help yourself grow and to help others grow.

We all have our work that we come here to do. Everything you come here to do is decided on before you come into your current lifetime. You bring spirits with you that you’ve been with before. They come into your life to help you, or to make your life harder so you learn and grow. There’s nothing fearful in that.

Lola pre-planned in spirit before coming into this lifetime to experience these fears, doubts, and questions so she’d be able to work through them. The #1 purpose of every spirit is to come into a lifetime and bring love into whatever you’re creating. So if you’ve come into this lifetime with obstacles, you’ve asked for these obstacles so you can find your way through them and bring love into them. Take the fear you experience and turn it into love.

In every situation there are only two choices: fear and love. In which direction do you want to go? As you focus on love, you’ll find more experiences coming your way that will show you more love, show you happiness and kindness, and help you open up to who you are as a spiritual being. If you focus on your fears, you’ll bring more of these fearful experiences into your life and have to work through them to change your beliefs and what you’re experiencing around these fears.

We’re all coming from one source of energy, which is love. Each time you come into this reality you create another part of who you are as a spiritual being. When you return to spirit, everything you’ve gone through, the good and the bad, you take back with you and everyone in spirit learns and grows from your experience. We’re all one, and yet there’s the individual part of you, and that part changes and grows with each incarnation you have.

Lola says there’s a feeling we can’t escape from our creation of bad experiences. The Council says you can always escape from experiences by what you focus on. The more you focus on bad experiences, the more you’ll bring them to you. You need to begin to understand you’re a powerful spirit. You’re here to change things for the better. You are the complete creator of everything that goes on in your reality. No one else can create for you.

When you learn the most powerful tool you have is choice, and you think everything is scaring you and you don’t know what to do, what if you just try to see your situation differently? What if you try to feel happier and calmer? Beginning to do this will show you what you can change. There’s a positive aspect to your fears.

Know that you chose to experience these fears so you can change them and grow from them. You’re the creator. How can you change the things that are frightening you? Use your imagination and see things turning out better. See yourself safe. See yourself smiling and happy. If you can hold onto these images and feel what you’re imagining, you’ll see your life change. That is what you came into this lifetime to do.

In a past life in ancient Egypt you were one of the priests that taught children about energy, how you control your thoughts, and how you create your future. As a loving teacher you couldn’t understand why some of the children weren’t able to easily understand what you were teaching because it was so simple for you. So in your current lifetime you wanted to experience what these slower children were going through. You chose to make things harder for yourself by not knowing how to turn obstacles around into love with your mind. As you try these things again it will come to you easily because it’s something you’ll remember from this past life.

Lola asks if we’re able to experience evil so deeply that we forget our true nature as spiritual beings? The Council says, yes, if you focus on evil. Thinking thoughts like, evil cannot touch me, evil is an illusion, everything is from the light, I am safe, and I am love can be beneficial.

The Council advises Lola to learn about the chakras, their colors, their energy, and what they do. Surround yourself in white light when you wake up and before you go to sleep.

There isn’t good energy and bad energy. There’s only energy. What you do with this energy, how you think about it, what you want to create with this energy makes it good or bad. What do you want to do with energy? You’re here to learn how to change your thought, your situations, your experiences around you with your mind.

Lola says she can’t picture herself free of fear in the future, even if she’s surrounded by loving people. How can she overcome her fears and doubts if she doesn’t understand everything fully?

The Council says when you have these fears and negative thoughts, be still and acknowledge that you’re having these fears and thoughts and then ask yourself how you can turn them around and reach for the light within you. Look for a pinhead of light in your heart and concentrate on that light growing until it comes out of your chest and puts you in a capsule of loving energy. If you’re working to find this light within you, you won’t have time to focus on doubt and negativity.

Lola closes by saying she feels like she’s deviated too far from her soul purpose and The Council says this will never happen. You’ll find a way through these obstacles, whether it’s the easy way or some illusion that you create. And if you feel you haven’t succeeded, you’ll come back to another reality and try to find your way through these obstacles again.

You’re here to understand how you create with your mind and your feelings, and how you can change anything to be beautiful, to have loving energy, and to help you grow. That’s your purpose. You’ll never stray from this purpose. Whatever obstacle you create, it’s just you trying to push you to learn how to work through this obstacle.

  1. Hi, Harmony. We imagine you’re the same person who asked the previous questions under the name, Lola. We understand you’re having some difficulty with The Council’s guidance and nothing seems real and you’re feeling alone sometimes. We’ll do our best to ask The Council your follow-up questions when we have time. We know you’re sometimes feeling depressed and you may not want to hear us ask you to please be patient while we answer other reader’s questions. If you’re in a hurry and you can afford a private phone session, that’s one answer. Try listening to our session with The Council on your previous question and see if you can bring yourself more peace in the meantime. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  3. RE: “The Council advises Lola to learn about the chakras…”. Here is some info. about crown chakra- (physical problems)
    • Anxiety and depression, bipolar disorder
    • Coma or amnesia
    • Headache, migraine, stroke, brain tumor, epilepsy
    • Multiple sclerosis
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and dyslexia
    • Cognitive delusions
    • ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease)
    • Mental illness, schizophrenia, and multiple personality disorder
    Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease

    Invite the divine to enter your life daily, through prayer, meditation, or communion with nature. Or, like endurance athletes, connect with the divine through physical exertion. Honor the connection you currently have, and truth will open the door to greater levels of connection.

    Fear, anxiety, and anger shut down our connection to the divine. This is one reason we pray or use techniques that allow us to release emotions that otherwise block the light coming down through the crown chakra.

    [But the Council advised learning about all because they all need to work in harmony. Good advice]

  4. Hi, I would like to ask a question again. I’m still feeling deep depression. I understand the council asks me to believe in love, believe in safety and joy and peace in order to create and experience them. But I have a problem with the idea of create: it feels like nothing is real and everything is replaceable this way. Is Love only a construct of belief? Are the people around me created by myself, and change according to my beliefs? This scares me, and makes me feel alone. It is similar to the idea of solipsism. I want others to be real. How do I come to peace with such ideas? I apologize if others find this question uncomfortable.

  6. This channeling is full of good info.. Lola, I believe if you are dealing with fear you need to balance your root chakra. I recently learned that just about any problem we have has it’s foundation in the root chakra. The color red is associated with that chakra. Take walks or a bath; dance. Things that are grounding. I, too, have had the challenge of fear directing my life and I continue to try to learn from it.

  7. Hi Bob and Cynthia, thank you so much for the longer than usual reading, and for asking all of my questions. Choosing love over fear sounded at first like simple advice, but upon giving this more thought, I guess there are some choices I can make in how I choose to react, even if the fear is yet to be resolved. It is interesting to know of my past lifetime, it does sound exactly like what I would choose to do, except that in this life I really have been held back by alot of fear, I wonder how that self would deal with this. I will try to ‘take the reins’ instead of let myself be paralysed by the fear and see where this takes me. Once again, thank you to you both and the Council. Much love!
