How Can I Heal My Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Michael, who starts by asking, “If a person has paid off his karmic debts…,” at which point The Council interrupts the question. They say for centuries many people believed there’s a karmic debt you have to pay off and they add, there’s no such thing as a karmic debt.

There are experiences you choose in spirit to relive in order to experience it again, but you relive these experiences differently. For example, you can heal a situation, you can choose to help others through a similar situation, and you can give yourself more understanding. But there is no karmic debt that says you must do this thing to pay back for something you did in a past life. You choose what you create in each lifetime because you’re learning from it and you’re being helpful to others.

Michael goes on to say, “…and has learned so many lessons from his addiction and it has completely ruined his life…” Again The Council interrupts and says maybe you look at it as ruining this one particular life, but according to your spirit, what’s happening is exactly what you want. You can gain additional understanding of a situation or show others what it’s like to be in your situation.

Michael continues, “…but he is now completely ready to fight it with all his might and heal himself. Can The Council suggest how he’d go about this?” The Council says Michael’s idea of fighting his addiction will get him nowhere in terms of his healing. The idea of fighting is negative and there’s too much pressure there.

If you don’t want to experience addiction anymore and you’re ready to heal your life, acknowledge what you’ve gone through. It’s your choice to change your life now and not to go through addiction anymore. There’s less pressure and more love in this approach. Just the fact there isn’t a war between you and your addiction will make all the difference it the world in terms of how you come through this.

If you believe you have to fight your addiction and you don’t heal this part of your life in this lifetime, when you transition you get more understanding. There will be spirit guides to go through this with you and remind you that when you came into this life, you don’t come to fight anything. You don’t come to push anything away. You came into your physical life to learn from it and choose how you want to go further with it. You’re always reminded to bring love into every situation.

Just acknowledge what you’ve gone through, where you are now, and how you want to move forward. Knowledge came with your addiction. Acknowledge you’re a spirit who picked this difficult challenge, but you’ve had enough and you wish to change your life. Your higher self will show you the way to get through your addiction. You should always have compassion for yourself and what you’ve gone through. You can change anything in your life.

Michael closes by saying The Council must release him and he asks how they can do this. The Council says they’re unable to release anyone from anything. You’re in charge of your life. We can only tell you to bring love into it for how brave you were to choose the difficulty of addiction. Now you can have another choice for your life, and that’s you releasing yourself.

Do Channelers Channel the Same or Different Spirit Guides?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Susan, who began listening to the guidance of Abraham (channeled by Esther Hicks) about 8 months ago. Recently I’ve been listening to The Council channeled by Sara Landon, and then I also found The Council on this website channeled by Cynthia. I would like to know if the people who channel are just channeling the same non-physical beings and translating the messages a little differently in each case. Or is each channel channeling different spiritual beings? And if this is the case, can spiritual beings that are part of Abraham also be part of The Council?

The Council says all the people who channel spirits are not channeling the same spirit. Different spirits connect with different individuals in your reality. Each person is channeling information that’s being translated by that individual and is a product of the knowledge that individual possesses. In time the connection between spirit and the channel becomes stronger and the channel’s ability to understand spirit’s messages becomes stronger.

Regarding Susan’s question about whether spirits can channel to more than one individual, The Council says this is possible if they choose to do this, but it’s not usually the case. When the person that channels transitions from human life back into spirit, the spirits that were connecting with this channel can move on to another channeler, or they can choose to do something else and not channel at that time.

Susan says some of the terminology used by different channels is the same and she asks if teachers like The Council go to school to train. The Council says the only school we train in is the school of experience. At times the terminology may seem the same, but there’s no formal school that we in spirit go to that tells us this is how you do it and this is what you say.

Do People Pre-Plan in Spirit to Experience Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, who asks if people pre-plan in spirit to experience addiction in their life, and why would they do that?

The Council says right now so many people are interested in addiction and they choose to experience it for many reasons. There’s something they want to learn. There’s something they want to relearn from a past life. There can be something they’re doing to help another spirit grow. Each person has their own path to follow in this choice of experiencing addiction in their life.

Kristi asks how God and spirit view addiction. The Council says God and spirit are the same thing; we are all God and spirit inside ourselves. Each one of us views addiction differently. Some people have no understanding of addiction, become very angry, want no part of this in their lives and pull away. They block out the addition and go into denial.

Others see addiction as someone needing help. Reaching out to this person is part of their journey just to help this spirit get through it. These people have supportive and loving energy and the courage to try and deal with these people.

Each one of us are God and spirit and views addiction differently. It’s all according to what you believe. How you view it is part of your plan for what you want to learn in your lifetime.

When you see someone dealing with addiction, try to understand their path. But more importantly, understand how you feel about this addiction. Is it wise for you to pull away? Is it wise for you to help? Are you there to learn boundaries around this addiction?

Some people want to learn about addiction. If you’re choosing to be an addict, will you agree to come into my life to teach me and help me learn about it? The spiritual point of view is what sets up what the human will go through.

There are many, many lessons to learn from addiction. There’s abandonment, when your family no longer has patience for you. There’s sickness, overdosing, and early death. It’s the experience the soul wants to have. Some people want to go through addiction and have that devastation and then find a way out of it so they know what it feels like. They can then go on and teach others, if not in this reality, then in a future reality.

Some people judge addiction harshly and they need to experience it the way they do. And along their path they may have something happen where their experience will change what they believe. Others may become very bitter and angry from being exposed to addiction and not understand it. These people may choose to become addicted in their next life. And some people choose addiction because they want to learn about shame, abandonment, hurt, death, or love when they come out of their addiction.

Coming into this world the most important thing you agreed to do is to take the love you experience in spirit and bring it into your physical reality so you can change it and make it better. The way you can do this is to allow everyone to be who they are. You cannot change someone else and you shouldn’t change them because they are planning to experience this addiction and they want to learn from it.

Send the addicted person love and allow them to go through whatever they’ve planned to experience. Hopefully they’ve also planned to come out of their addiction. If not, understand with your heart if they succumb to addiction, it was what they wanted to experience. And they’ll use this experience in a future life to help themselves, get more understanding, and help others.

The best thing you can do for an addicted person is to send them love. If you can’t send them love, then another great part of love is allowing the addicted person to learn their lessons so that they grow. And we all grow from their experience.

How Does the Black Lives Matter Movement Relate to Me?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Amy, who’s asking for guidance on how to navigate living in America now, especially relative to the Black Lives Matter movement. I don’t feel called to protest in the streets or post about it on social media, and The Council says this is wonderful. My inclination is to hold space and live lovingly knowing that can change the world.

The Council says many spirits in our reality right now have specifically planned to come in and hold the light and loving thoughts. When there’s negativity, acknowledge it to yourself and don’t get into discussions where there are likely to be disagreements or one person tries to convince the other.

Be quiet, send loving thoughts and energy, and meditate on peace. There isn’t any need to make your beliefs public. What’s necessary right now is for everyone to think peaceful thoughts and move within your heart and hold onto the light and good thoughts.

It’s not necessary to move forward with disruptive action. What’s necessary is to work with positive energy. Everything is created in an energetic field first and then it’s brought into your reality. Have good thoughts. See the world as you’d like it to be.

When you’re aware of negativity going on, it’s okay to acknowledge this negativity, but then rethink it in a more positive way. These people who are causing upheaval and negativity at this time, that are angry because of what’s going on – that isn’t how we bring peace and love into this world.

Allow negative people to have their thoughts and to do what they’re doing until they realize that violence only brings more violence. To get to a place of great change, your thinking must change. There must be more loving thoughts. Put beautiful white and pink energy around people, around situations, and around your world. That’s how you help with the changes that are needed in your world right now.

We applaud you for not being one of these people who try to convince others they’re wrong. When people talk to you about their beliefs, tell them you don’t wish to talk about these situations at this time. If you feel you must listen when someone expresses what feels like a negative opinion, at the end you can say that you hear what they believe and see it’s important to them. Acknowledge the other person, but don’t get into a discussion about who believes what and why, and they are trying to get you to change your belief.

Amy says this sometimes feels passive and she’s concerned she’s not doing enough. The Council replies that she is doing more than enough if you maintain a peaceful attitude and work with the energy. This is exactly what’s needed at this time.

Amy says she could use some advice on how to handle people who express their racist beliefs to her. I feel I’m too inclined to keep the peace and maybe this isn’t the right option now. The Council says keeping peace is the perfect option right now. You’re already on the right path and intuitively doing what needs to be done.

Can I Trust a Colleague Who’s Been Excluding Me From Projects?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who has a work colleague who recently began excluding them from work projects they expected to be part of. They ask The Council’s advice if this colleague is someone I can still trust.

The Council says this person appears to go through periods of being for you and then against you, which has to do with emotions this person is working through from other times. It’s okay to remain acquainted with this person, but because of what they’re going through it’s unwise to share private emotional situations that come up in your life.

At this time, movement is necessary. What you’ve planned to experience at work hasn’t gone quite in the direction you planned and it’s time to begin looking for another place of employment. The timing is very good for this.

The anonymous reader says they received a job offer recently, but didn’t take it and now I’m having second thoughts. The Council advises if this position remains available to see if they can still get it. If it’s not available, start looking in other areas for work. And when you get an offer that feels good to you, which you will, even if it’s scary to make a change, we suggest you move forward with this. There’s a whole new path available for you. New people will come into your life and there will be new lessons to learn. This will be a great learning time for you.

The Council suggests this person look for any position that has to do with movement, either moving material or people around, or perhaps moving temporarily from one place to another. The important thing for you right now is to meet many new people and develop new friendships. This is part of what’s been set up for you. Movement is needed in your energetic field to create what you want.

Clarification on Living Multiple Lives at One Time

This post answers a question from a reader named, Pam. After she read our post, Is it Possible for Me to Exist in Several Places at the Same Time? she says she’s a little confused. She asks if in that post The Council is saying we can be living two lifetimes at once because one life is lived through the astral body?

The Council says you don’t live different realities in astral bodies unless that is what you’ve created. All the realities you’ve created have a physical form. It’s the same form you have now, but you’d look different in each reality. Because of what you wish to learn and experience you’ll create lives with a full physical body, not just an astral body.

When you want to learn what it’s like to be in the astral reality – helping others and connecting with them in their dreams and meditations – then you may choose to be a higher form of energy. But you live and experience all your realities at once.

Each time you create a reality, no matter what form you choose, a very small piece of you goes into this new reality and creates this new life. You’re living many, many realities at once, but this isn’t necessarily because one of these lives is through the astral body.

Pam says she thought, given that time isn’t linear, that we’re actually living all of our lifetimes at the same time, but only focusing on one life at a time. The Council agrees with Pam and they go on to say that each part of you, in any form, is focused in the reality where you’ve sent that part of you to live.

Bob asks The Council to clarify what they mean when they say “in any form.” The Council says there are some realities you can create where, for example, only thought-forms exist. This thought-form reality is also going on at the same time as the other realities you’ve created.

At this point Bob sums up his understanding of what The Council is saying: It’s possible we can be living two or more lifetimes at the same time, but this isn’t because one of these lifetimes is through an astral body. Although it’s possible to live one of those lives just on the astral plane if that’s what you wish to create. And The Council agrees with this assessment.


Although this post may be a little more complicated than most of our posts, we encourage you to listen to the entire 4-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Pam and the rest of us and to let us know what you feel about it, or ask your own question.

What Are Plasma Beings?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Eddie, who wants to know what plasma beings are.

The Council says other people might call them aliens, ghosts, or a form of spirit. They aren’t harmful. Many of the guardians of our Earthly reality appear to people as plasma people. They are pure energy and high intelligence. When they connect with you, if they want to they can stay as just energy or choose any form. They can choose the shape of an animal or a human.

Know that these plasma people are here on Earth to help us through the changes that are coming to this planet. They’re here to minimize negativity. If you feel you’re able to speak with plasma beings we encourage you to do that. When they’re ready they’ll speak with you.

Plasma beings come from many different realities: planets, stars, and realties where only energy exists. They can travel around and change their shape to appear in the form of a space ship or other sort of flying object. Many people who’ve seen UFOs have really seen plasma people.

How Can I Deal with these High-pitched Tones in My Ears?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Jay, who says he’s struggling with bouts of debilitating tinnitus (ringing in the ears) that he’s been unable to solve himself. I’m a person who can appreciate silence, but there’s no silence in my experience now – just high-pitched feedback-like tones. When I have these episodes it’s so distracting that I feel unable to use my brain. How can I address this problem? It’s wearing me out emotionally and leaving me feeling hopeless.

The Council sees that Jay has created this tinnitus, not as a distraction, but as something to tune you in to your inner voice, to guidance, and to connecting to spirit. You haven’t spent enough time meditating or sitting silently and patiently asking questions and listening for answers. This tinnitus was created by you to bring your attention to sound and hearing.

When you do have these tinnitus attacks, sit for a short period of time and listen to the tone. Imagine walking into it and through it. What do you see? What do you hear?

When you’re able to experience silence The Council asks you to meditate, to picture any sort of colors in your mind’s eye, then go back to listening. Begin by listening to tones, and then it will turn into words, and you can think of questions, and just listen. This tinnitus is your way of stopping yourself from everyday life so you can give time and attention to this problem of not tuning into your inner voice.

When you can go into this silence we see this will last longer and longer because you’re fulfilling what you’ve created to help you get to a higher vibration, which also causes this sound in your ears. This is the way your higher self has stopped you so you can begin to listen and not run away from these sounds. Listen and work with these sounds while it leads you on a path that connects you to your higher self.

We realize it’s difficult to listen to these sounds and you feel like you want to escape them, but they can’t hurt you. For a short period, even if it’s only a minute, listen to these sounds and imagine they have a color. Imagine walking into a room that’s filled with this color and the sound you hear until you no longer feel you need to escape. The more you can do this the sounds will change. It will change your vibration and you’ll connect to your higher self and your spirit guides.

When you don’t hear these sounds and there’s quiet, take five minutes if you can to sit and appreciate the silence. Go into the silence. Create another room. What color is in the room with silence in it? Go into it and listen. When you’re comfortable, ask questions. Don’t be afraid to listen. The more you listen, the answers to your questions will come to you.

This will take time. Persevere.

Did I Share Past Lives and Children with My Current Husband?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who wants to know if they shared past lives and children with their current spouse.

The Council says rather than knowing if you’ve been with your spouse and had children together in past lives, it’s important for you to understand you’re life is at a crossroads. You may not completely understand right now, but you really want is to be more aware of who you are spiritually.

You planned in spirit at this time in your life to find out much more about yourself, about your body, and about if past lives are possible and how they work. And you should be independent with this path whether others agree with you or not.

What you planned for your current life was an inner searching, learning to meditate, and how to see and feel the colors of energy. This is more important to your higher self than answering questions about past lives with your spouse. It’s very important for you to embark on this path and your spirit will make a great connection to your higher self.

If you continue on this path and meditate you’ll be able to get information, and it may start with automatic writing. After you’ve been meditating for a while just hold paper and a pen or sit in front of a computer and just wait. Whatever you hear, whether it makes sense or not, write it out. Your connection to your higher self will begin this way.

Please Guide Me in Healing My Shortness of Breath

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Peace Peace-Peace, who’s recently started having shortness of breath that seems related to lung issues. Can The Council please guide me with any particular meditation or medicines that can be helpful?

First The Council recommends doing the heart chakra meditation they mention in another one of our blogs (links at the end of this post). They see your sixth and third chakra also need more energy and they suggest you do the other six chakra exercises to bring more energy into your body to help you with healing.

The Council says you had a past life as a young man in Russia where it was very cold and you died of pneumonia. You brought the lung problem with you in your current lifetime to learn how to heal this problem.

Follow up with doctors and get the tests they recommend.

Work on letting go of your lung problem by remembering you died from pneumonia in a past life. Picture in your mind how you think your situation was in that life and let go of this. Realize that your experience with pneumonia was so strong in that previous life that in your current life it’s contributing to your lung problems.

To ease the difficulties in your lungs The Council suggests you rub eucalyptus oil on your chest and put this oil in a diffuser to breathe it in. They also suggest taking nettle pills or drinking nettle tea will help you breathe better.

The Council recommends dealing with any issues you find in your life where you feel people aren’t willing to recognize who you are, stifling your growth, or knock down your plans and dreams by the way they think about you, which would be suffocating and would affect your lungs.

Do deep breathing every day. Breathe in to the count of eight, hold your breath to the count of six, and then release your breath on a count of seven. This will help expand your lungs and we feel it will help you.

Read as much as you can about past lives so you can understand how they can affect your current reality and why you would bring in a situation in order to heal it. Robert Schwartz‘s books (Your Soul’s Plan and Your Soul’s Gift) are a good place to start because he gives you the story of what a person is going through, why they’re going through this, and what the lesson is.


Here are links to our other posts that contain a basic and an advanced chakra breathing exercise that The Council recommends for Peace Peace-Peace.

Why Do I Feel So Close to a Dead Russian Musician I Never Met?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Krista, who says she thinks she’s found a past life lover whose name is Viktor. I’m American and Viktor was Russian. I was born in 1984 and Viktor was born in 1962. He tragically died in a car accident when he was 28 years old in 1990. I was only 5 years old when he died. We’ve never met each other and I didn’t know he existed until last year (2019).

This all began when I met a Russian man through an online game and we’ve been best friends for the last four years. Last year this friend suggested I look into the underground rock band Victor created when he was alive.

It’s difficult to put into words when I saw Viktor’s face for the first time. I instantly felt I recognized him. I thought he is mine and I am his and it’s been this way forever. When I look into his eyes it feels like looking into a mirror. It feels trance-like. There no doubt in my mind I know this man completely, but we never met in this lifetime.

The Council says you’ve both been together in past lives many, many times in all sorts of relationships: brothers, sisters, parents of each other, cousins, husbands, wife, and teenage love among them. When you see this person or think of him your connection to him is very real.

In your current life, although you never met, there was sort of an agreement that he would drop in or leave a message to let you know he’s around. Even though you never met in your current reality, the bond between the two of you is very strong.

The Council says this situation is two souls recognizing each other. This was Viktor’s way when he planned his life that he wouldn’t meet up with you, but would somehow find a way to let you know you’re still connected and he’s still around you in spirit.

The Council says wanting to be with Viktor is wonderful and where it can’t be in your physical reality in this lifetime, in your dreams and meditations you can be together. There’s no separation. Go forward with what you’ve planned in this lifetime and when you transition Viktor’s spirit will be there to greet you. And probably, from what we’ve seen you’ve done before, you’ll plan more lifetimes together.

Should I Pursue a Romantic Relationship with a Girl I Met Recently?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Harmony, who asks about a girl they recently met. She seems nice and I enjoy being around her. I feel she might like me romantically, but I don’t know if I should pursue a romantic relationship with her. I kind of feel like I don’t want a romantic relationship right now, but maybe it would be good for me. Another problem is that she lives far away from me. Was this woman someone I agreed to meet before coming into this lifetime?

The Council says because of the distance, a relationship would be very difficult to maintain. They suggest, particularly because you aren’t sure you want to be in a romantic relationship, to keep the connection with this woman and remain friends. As you both create what you want in this relationship the relationship will, in time, show you the direction you both wish it to go.

It was pre-planned in spirit that you’d get to know this woman, but it was pre-planned with an open end. Nothing was planned for certain. You planned to get together to see what was going on in each other’s lives, and then see where you want to take the relationship.

The Council advises you not to drop or walk away from this relationship. Begin as friends and see where this leads.
