Being Open to Other People’s Points of View

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Grale, who says she recently messaged her twin flame and is concerned she may have been too hasty with her choice of words. She told him she’s stepping away if he doesn’t want to open up to her more, but if he changes his mind she’ll always be there for him.

The Council says the last lifetime Grale shared with her twin flame they were brothers in a family of eleven children around 1905. You and your brother were very competitive. There was a good family life and there was a great understanding and acceptance of each other.

In your current lifetime it was discussed in your pre-birth planning that it would be fun to share another life together and that the lesson for you would have to do with gaining understanding. You wished to come across people that would teach you from their perspective, which would be different from your own. You came into this lifetime wanting to meet people, including your brother from your last life, and try and understand their feelings even though they thought differently from you, and not try to change the other person’s idea of what they want.

When people in your current life talk about things you don’t agree with, do you try to understand their point of view? That’s the lesson you wanted to learn in this lifetime – to open up and realize that people can be accepted for what they believe in. They don’t have to agree with you and be on the same page with their ideas.

The Council says many people use the phrase, twin flame, to describe souls who’ve come in together and have shared many past lives. They say if it gives you comfort to think you’re a twin flame then that’s your belief, but we’re all twin flames. We come into this lifetime, we interact, and we learn from this.

The Council asks if in your current life, where you aren’t a blood relation to your brother from your previous life, is there still love and understanding of one another? In your past life you tried to change each other’s ideas about how you thought about things. In your current life can you accept people the way they reveal themselves to you? Learn acceptance. Try to learn how these people think and feel. On a soul level this will help you grow.

Grale says several weeks have passed since she messaged her “twin flame” and she’s concern he may have misunderstood her intentions, or he may not want to get any closer to her at this time. The Council asks Grale, when she thinks back on what she said and how it was said, if she can understand how he may have misunderstood her? If she’d like to explain her thoughts and what she meant to this person, The Council suggests Grale do this. If it’s still not accepted, can she understand how this person would feel based on what she said? If you say you’re stepping away it can bring up abandonment issues for this other person.

Your situation with this person is about you understanding the way you acted. Perhaps you could have handled the situation differently. Perhaps before you speak to people you can try to understand and accept their point of view. And sometimes you can comment on their point of view and sometimes you can just let it go and show acceptance, which is a form of love.

Grale says she feels a disconnection from her brother in their last life and it worries her. She asks The Council if she made the wrong choice in her message to him. The Council says there aren’t any wrong choices. There’s only learning from how you handle the situation and how you reach out again, or perhaps just handle the situation differently with other people.

Grale asks The Council what she can do to have this person open up to her more. The Council reminds Grale that perhaps this person doesn’t want to open up to her at this particular time. Can Grale accept this? Can she rephrase what she said to this person and make it clearer with less of a sense of urgency? Can she do this without saying, “If you don’t do this, I will step away?” It’s a threat and won’t help him open up to you more. But if there still isn’t a desire to understand each other, which you had in your previous lifetime, perhaps this person isn’t ready to open up to you at this time. Can you still send him love, accept his choices, and see what you can build by learning your separate lessons?

The Council says Grale’s situation is that she wants closeness with this person, but it’s not there. She wants to be together based on their shared past life and she wonders why they can’t be together again in her current life. Why aren’t you open to me when I want to be open to you? It’s so Grale can learn about acceptance of other people’s feelings. And it’s not just with this person. It’s also with other people who come into your life. How do you handle people who don’t accept your ideas and that you find difficult to understand? These are your challenges that you’ve set up for this lifetime.

The Council says much can be learned by Grale from being open to people’s different points of view. And as she learns this, more and more people will come into her life that want to be around her and have similar points of view, but before this happens Grale needs to accept everyone.

In closing The Council says there’s no failure if this person she’s calling a twin flame doesn’t want to get closer to her. This is what’s being worked out between the two of them. As this person goes through their lessons they’ll either learn to open up to her or move along.

How Can We Change the Life We Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, PE, who wants to know how to change the pre-birth plans they made when they were still in spirit, and they give the following example. If you’re very sick, can you decide you’d rather not deal with the issue of sickness in your current lifetime and your body will heal itself?

The Council explains that the experiences we wish to go through once we enter our physical lifetime are chosen by us in spirit to help us grow. During your spiritual pre-birth planning, sometimes you pick a lesson that will be very difficult once you enter physical reality, although in spirit it doesn’t feel like it will be difficult. The spirit chooses to have the experience because it wants to learn from it and grow. When you pre-plan something in spirit, your higher self knows why you want to go through this. But in your physical lifetime as you face these difficulties you may say, “I’ve had enough. I don’t want to deal with this.” But your spirit knows better; it knows how much it wants to go through this experience to learn and grow from it.

When you’re going through an experience and find it too stressful and it prevents you from experiencing other things you desire to experience in that lifetime, you can go through part of it and decide to continue it in another lifetime instead. But that’s the human part of you making that decision. The spiritual part of you will help you get through a difficult experience and when you finally learn the lesson, the body will instantaneously heal.

Sometimes all you need to realize is that the healing comes from within you. When you realize you’re a powerful spiritual being in a physical body, you can change your life. Many people who go through an illness don’t feel powerful and go through it without understanding this is something they chose in spirit. They think let me ease this experience and continue it at another time. The Council says it’s possible to do this.

But The Council adds that what you experience is what you believe. If you believe you’ve chosen this difficult illness in spirit, you can speak to your spirit in meditation and prayer and ask for this difficulty to change. If your faith and your belief are strong enough, you can do this. You, as a human being, are always in control with your thoughts, with how you look at each experience, and how you try to understand the lesson behind the difficulty.

The Council says whatever lesson we choose to go through in this physical reality we always come for one reason and that’s to figure out how to bring love into the lesson we’re going through? How can I learn to love in this situation? How do the people around me learn to love in this situation? Always know you can reach out to your higher self in meditation or prayer and ask to be shown the lesson you wished to learn. Ask to see this lesson the way you presented it to your spirit guides when you pre-planned it. And ask to remember who you truly are as a spiritual being and that you have a choice in your physical life.

As a human being having an uncomfortable experience you can say, I’ve had enough, I don’t want to deal with this difficulty any more. But who you are as a spiritual being knows it has to push you through this difficulty. It was your desire to get through this experience. But if it seems too much for you right now, you can ask to let yourself learn from what you’ve experienced so far, and continue this lesson in another lifetime.

When you meditate and connect with your higher self, a dialogue begins and your higher self will know how to get you through this difficulty, how to make it easier, or how to change it. You are your higher self. You have access to your higher self when you meditate, whether you feel it consciously or not. You have access to your higher self when you pray. You have access to your higher self when you dream.

When you learn you are your higher self, which creates the human part of you that’s going through this difficult experience, that spirit part of you is coming with you on this journey and is seeing how you handle each experience. Your higher self understands what was agreed upon before you came into your physical reality and it knows how the human part of you can handle the difficulty.

Meditate and visualize healing energy around you. Know your connection to your higher self is there, even if you don’t feel it consciously. The more you think of the way you want your life to be, your life will adjust to these thoughts. Take time to meditate and speak with your higher self. You may not remember what you planned. Your life may be difficult and you think you can’t learn from it. Can you find a way to change your life? Can you make it less traumatic? But you have to reach out with your thoughts, knowing that you’re connected to your higher self.

Many people believe there’s the human part of you, and your spirit part is way off somewhere else. It’s not. You are that spirit part of you. When you think you bit off more than you can chew, the higher part of you knows what you planned and why you planned it. If you believe your higher part can ease your difficulty, it can. If you believe your higher part can cure your illness, it can. Each lesson you go through brings you to the understanding you’re not a victim. When you know there is an answer to your questions – and you don’t have to know how your answer will come –  the answer will come when you’re open to it. But you have to think, “I am the one who will change this. I am the one that will connect with the part of me that has all the answers.” And when you let go of the fear and the discouragement the answers will come.

Play with the reasons you could have planned your difficulty. Many people use illness or a disability as a punishment. The Council says that’s only a thought in the human mind that you’ve carried with you into this world, and you’ll create the disease or the disability if you feel there’s a reason for this. When you connect to spirit, you’ll know that everything you think you should be punished for was just an experience for you to learn from. There’s no one here keeping track of how far you’ve come or if you’ve been punished long enough. The answer comes in prayer and meditation. In your quiet time your answers will come.

The Council ends by saying they think some who hear the guidance in this post won’t find it easy to understand, and they say this is fine. Listen to it again and again and do the mediations, and talk to your spirit, and you’ll see the difference in your lives.

Listen to the entire 17-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us. A session like this one is particularly difficult to recap with just the highlights, as we’ve attempted to do in this written summary. And let us know what you feel about this session.
