Should I Contact My Dead Father Through a Medium?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, JERL, who says lately in my spiritual journey I’ve been drawn to my painful past and memories of my early childhood when I was neglected by my father and step-mothers. The Council says this is wonderful because you pre-planned in spirit to do this and it means you’re ready now. You’re ready to look at these memories, to go over what’s happened, change how you think about it, change how you understand it, change how you feel about it, and how to figure out how to let it go.

JERL says, I’m trying to sit with the sadness, but I keep feeling drawn to meeting with a medium to talk with spirit about my father who I was happily estranged from for ten years before he killed himself last year. The Council says there’s light and joy on the other side of the sadness. Just sit with it. The more you can sit with your sadness you’ll see it won’t kill you or hurt you. You’re remembering an emotion and you’re remembering it in order to go through it and heal it.

JERL says his father was very negative and part of JERL is afraid that even in spirit he’ll cause me painful memories if I speak with him. The Council says if you truly connect with your father’s spirit, and you don’t need someone else to help you do this, there won’t be a single negative thought, or negative word, or anything that would be said that can hurt you.

Unfortunately, in your reality people feel they have to go to someone else in order to speak with someone who’s passed into spirit. Meditate. Talk to your father in your mind and this other person won’t be necessary. Many of these mediums and psychics are very good, but what isn’t commonly understood is that they often don’t connect with the spirit of the person you want to connect with. These mediums are connecting with these people’s essence of who they were when they were alive.

When a medium gives you negativity or tells you something horrible that this spirit says to you, it isn’t who the spirit truly is. The medium is just connecting with who the person was when they were alive. When you connect with spirit it will be beautiful. If you feel you need someone to connect you with your father, keep searching until you find the right medium. All good mediums that give you messages from spirit will be helpful, they’ll make you laugh, there will be talk of love, and there will be great understanding.

JERL continues, on the other hand I’d like to understand what my father’s life goals were and be able to forgive him so I can pray for his well-being every day. The Council wants you to know that you chose your father to play this role in your life. You both got together in spirit and planned how your life would be and how you could learn from it. How your father behaved was part of the act he put on. It was like being on stage. He played a part. He lost track of who he truly was as a spiritual being. He was hurt as a child and this negativity and hurt carried through to his adult life. Unfortunately it affected you.

Know there are reasons your father was the way he was. It wasn’t your fault. This was something you both agreed in spirit to experience. When you think of your father, what did he teach you? What kind of person did it make you? When you understand that in reality he had his problems and they caused him to be the way he was. There were lessons your father wanted to learn.

When you think of your father, can you think of him having his own challenges? Think of how he was hurt and suffering inside. How you were treated doesn’t make it right. It was part of the deal you made with your father in spirit. When you think of him being negative and suffering, what did this teach you? What did you learn? When you can repeatedly look at your father’s negativity, no matter how many times it takes, and not feel sadness, even if you go numb, if you no longer hurt from it, you’re starting on the path of forgiveness. Know you’ve come through what you’ve experienced. What have you learned? The purpose of experiencing this neglect is to understand what you’ve learned.

JERL continues, I understand I chose my father in order to learn my lessons and that we were friends and enemies in other lives. In my current life, putting a boundary between him and me has been healthy for me. The Council says it’s wonderful you knew exactly what you had to do to make your life better. There’s no guilt in that.

JERL says he’s wary and a little scared of his thoughts that it’s time to reconcile with his father. The Council says if you truly want to reconcile, this will happen when you begin to understand your father had his challenges. He played the part he was supposed to in your life, and he did this to help you grow and learn because that’s what you wanted. All this thinking about your past will help you move forward. Then you’ll be ready to forgive. It’s not that someone is telling you it’s time to forgive. You’ll know it’s time because you’ll have more understanding.

JERL asks if he should trust his urges and meet with his father in spirit through a medium? The Council says if you go to a medium who gives you scary or angry messages, or any message that makes you feel bad, don’t go back to this person. Find someone else and you’ll see the difference in the messages that come through.

Your father has reviewed his life and knows he did his part. He’s sending you light to help you get to a place of forgiveness. When you’re ready, you’ll let this light in.

Learn to meditate. Sit quietly in a chair, even if it’s for five minutes a day, and picture your father’s face. This may be difficult in the beginning. Then begin to speak to your father. You can tell him how you feel and what your experience with him has done to you. Ask your father to let you know it was all part of your spiritual plan. Ask for information and your father and your spirit guides will help you get it. Somehow you’ll just know the answers to your questions. It’s not like you’ll hear a word for word explanation. It will come all at once in a block of feeling. Everything will lift and you’ll realize you’re surrounded by guides, angels, and beautiful light energy.

Since you’ve gone through this painful history it’s now helping you move past it. Before you go to bed you can ask for information or ask to feel forgiveness. When you feel this forgiveness you’ll be able to connect with your father, because the negativity between you and spirit will prevent this from happening. If you do the work and take the time, you’ll find the answers you seek. No one else is needed.

What is the Spiritual Purpose of COVID-19?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, who asks if COVID-19 (the coronavirus) was man-made or altered by humans? The Council says it was man-made because you’ve all agreed to create this virus. We’ll find out eventually there was a man-made slip-up that created this. Even though it was a slip-up it was all part of everyone’s planning in spirit. More of this will come to light. There will be many stories, but there was a lot of experimentation and this happened.

Kristi says if it was man-made, what is the agenda and the parties involved? The Council says there was no agenda. It’s something that was created by everyone’s agreement it would happen this way. Medical scientists were involved.

Bob asked The Council if they could say what country was involved in the slip-up. The Council says if we went into this it would create more chaos right now. What will be helpful is after there’s discussion and more information becomes available, we can let you know if this information is true.

The not knowing at this time, the talk about who created this, why was it created, was there an agenda – this was part of the spiritual plan to cause a lot of chaos, mistrust, and violence. It was created to take everyone down this path for a while.

Kristi asks what is the spiritual lesson of COVID-19? The Council says before this virus was created, things had become difficult in your reality. People had become more negative. There are many light-holders in this reality that want the best for everyone, that are positive, that pray, that meditate, but as you can see as you look at the past several years, things have been changing. It’s becoming clear there’s more violence. COVID-19 was created to stop everything so everyone could go inward and start thinking about their lives and start looking at what’s going on.

This virus has caused more rioting, more looting, and more hatred, but it’s also forcing everyone to stay put. There’s no busy life to run to. Go inward. What do you want in this life? How do you want to see this reality as it moves forward? Many lost track of how to create and just let whatever happened happen. You forgot you are all great creators.

There’s no need for negativity. The purpose of coming to Earth at this time was to bring love from the spirit world into this world. There will be a lot of upheaval until things are balanced and more light comes into the world and more goodness is apparent.

Many people think how wonderful the old days were. How families were closer and did things together. There was more loyalty in the workforce. The government was more understanding and listened instead of going on their own paths. Many things will be thought of now because there’s this downtime. It’s forcing you to ask yourself: Who am I? What am I doing to help make this situation better? What do I want?

Let me appreciate everyone around me. Let me show compassion. Let me see how millions of people will suffer through this virus, whether they fight this disease, whether they die, or whether they are one of the many workers who are exhausted. People will start to feel appreciation for others who are out front holding the line, trying to make things better, and risking themselves to help strangers get through this. That is compassion. That’s why you’re here. To feel for one another. To help one another. That’s why this virus is going on right now. It’s the downtime, it’s the going inward, it’s the finding what you want, feeling your strength, and then creating with your mind by simply thinking over and over again how you’d like this life to be.

Kristi asks if we’re being lied to by our government or health officials, and why? The Council says many of the government and health agencies are afraid to take responsibility for what’s happened. Many of these agencies feel it’s better not to let the whole story out so that the people in our reality don’t panic. There’s what you’d call a great cover-up, but many people are doing this thinking it’s a good thing not to add more chaos to the situation. By telling everyone they feel it will bring more negativity into this reality, more hatred, more panic, and more rioting.

And people will look for someone to blame. Who’s responsible? The Council says we’re all responsible. You brought this virus in if this reality wasn’t going towards being more positive and more loving. You all agreed to let this virus in to stop this negativity.

Lastly Kristi asks if things will return to normal or will things get worse in the near future? The Council says things will return to normal. When this happens is up to everyone in this reality. You are the creators. It can happen quickly or it can take a long time. Will things swing back to being more loving, more caring, and more compassionate for one another? Will things become more peaceful? We can definitely say, yes.

Do what you can to get in touch with who you are as a spiritual being. Pray, meditate, think good thoughts, and pay attention to what makes you feel good and stay with that feeling. This will put you on the path faster.

Know that your greatest tool coming into this reality is choice. It’s your choice to think negatively, to think positively, to blame, and to hate people. Or to think this has happened. How can we change it? These are your choices and they are important tools. Know who you are and why you’re here. You’re more than your physical body. You have the choice of what you think and how you react to one another. And when you become aware everyone is spirit and you all worked very hard and planned a long time for this virus to happen, you can turn this situation around.

How Can We Help My Aunt with Her Depression?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Looking For Advice, who says: For the last few years my aunt has slipped into a depression. She was a happy and lively woman before, but ever since she became depressed she’s lost the essence of herself.

The Council says the depression is something she’s gone into because she’s focusing on a lot of loss she’s gone through, she’s feeling alone, and she’s close to the end of her life. There is a withdrawing going on and you should allow this withdrawing to happen.

In spirit your aunt prepared to have many disappointing experiences and losses and then to go into this depression to look at each of these experiences. While in her depression your aunt wanted to be surrounded by caring people and experiencing love. Even though she’s withdrawn her spirit can feel this love.

The way to help your aunt is not to treat her as a depressed person, but to speak energetically with her. Talk about daily events, news, and things on television. Keep your aunt in the present moment and get her interested in what’s going on around her. If she’s feeling cared for and allows these feelings from her family and friends to come into her energy field, she’ll slowly come out of this depression.

You have to give your aunt time to experience her feelings and thoughts of loss and think about what she’d like to do with the rest of her life. She’s in a time of withdrawal and during this she’s creating her future.

Looking For Advice says: My aunt’s family has tried all sorts of doctors and praying to different gods, but she’s not even close to the way she was. She’s even undergone thyroid surgeries to make it a little better, but nothing seems to be helping. The Council says the thyroid surgeries aren’t the answer.

The Council says when you experience a lot of loss or a lot of hurt from the people around you, while it’s going on you can ignore it and put it in the back of your mind in order to live your day to day life. When you get older and things quiet down, these memories start to come back into your awareness and make the havoc you weren’t willing to face when you originally experienced them. You must allow your aunt to go through this.

You can ask her if she wants to talk about anything from her past. You can bring up good memories to give her positive thoughts, but the main thing is to show love. By allowing her to be who she is she can work her way through this depression.

The Council closes by saying instead of trying to get your aunt to be her old self, love her by allowing her to be in this challenge that she’s set up for herself. Her higher self wants to go through this depression and find it’s way out.

How Can I Overcome My Bulimia?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Chris, who says: Throughout my life I’ve overcome a number of obsessive-compulsive disorders and addictive behaviors including alcoholism. However, after 34 years (I’m now 46) I still suffer from bulimia. I’ve been in four in-patient centers and worked with several therapists and counselors and I can’t figure out how to move beyond this. I understand all about eating disorders, I have significant conscious self-awareness, I’ve worked with an energy healer, and I’m at a loss for how to rid myself of this problem. Any insight, ideas, or guidance would be helpful.

The Council says what you planned before incarnating was simple, but when you arrive on the Earth path it doesn’t seem so simple. It’s not like a specific past life is influencing what you chose. What you wanted to do in some form was teach.

You planned in spirit to become “trapped” in different disorders and you wanted to go through them. The way you’d get out of them was to think of every challenge you faced. What did you think while you were in each disorder? What did it feel like? But most important, what did you learn?

As an alcoholic, or bulimic, or any negative pattern you felt trapped in, you wanted to learn what it felt like to be in each situation. Go back in time, think of everything you went through, and ask yourself what you learned when you were an alcoholic and wait for some ideas to come to you.  Then ask what else you learned. It’s like peeling an onion. What did you learn? What else did you learn? And then how did you change the pattern?

What will help you complete these challenges you set up is to learn from each situation and then to tell people about them. This is how you wanted to teach. You wanted to go through each challenge, feel what it was like, and find out what you learned. What kept you in each pattern and what helped you get out of it? As you focus on still being bulimic (or any other challenge you bring into your life), when you focus on what you’re feeling and what you learned, you’ll complete the challenge.

This will help you learn how to face your challenges. The most important thing to ask is what it felt like being in it? What did you learn from it? How did you handle the challenge emotionally and physically? And how did you get out of it? All this information is what you planned in spirit to put together in a way to help others come through their own challenges.

What’s going on in your life concerning your bulimia? Why are you in it? What pushes the button that makes you bulimic? What does it feel like? Is it a control issue? Does it bring up feelings of being weak or abandoned? It’s up to you to search what goes on within you physically, emotionally, mentally, and put this information together. When you look at the other challenges you had and you see why you went into them, what was going on for you? How did you get out of the challenge? You’ll find the pattern you’re looking for and it will help with your bulimia.

Your bulimia isn’t any different than your alcoholism or any of your other challenges. Go back into these issues and see how it felt. What got you into this challenge and how did you come out of it? What did you learn from this challenge? Will the way you came out help others? This is what you planned in spirit: to go through each challenge, to have the experience, the feeling, the thoughts, the emotions, and then to change the challenge by getting out of it. And then you wanted to help others with your knowledge. This is exactly what’s happening. There will be a similar pattern that you’ll find as you go through each challenge you set up and it will help with overcoming your bulimia.

Can I Create My Next Life While I’m Still in My Current Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the initials, SG, who says they’ve had a spiritual awakening, learned about soul contracts and reincarnation, learned how amazing heaven is, and learned that the soul never dies. SG says they’re a gentle soul in the middle of extremely difficult people, including members of my family.

The Council says you desired to be a kind of role model of peace, understanding, and positivity in your life, and in your desire for this you’ll attract some chaos and people with problems. By your actions and words you can teach these people to think and behave in different ways than they’re used to.

SG says, I tried to help everyone around me, but I learned they’re on their own journey and I have to allow them to learn their own lessons. The Council says this is excellent. Once you have that understanding the rest of what you create in your current life should come easily.

SG says, I know exactly the life I want in my next incarnation. Am I able to create it so it becomes my reality when I’m in heaven planning my next lifetime? The Council says your current life isn’t finished, so are you sure you know exactly what you want in your next life? They advise SG to live out their current life and create your next life when you return to spirit. You can imagine right now how you’d like your next life to be, but we suggest you concentrate on living every moment of this life. Be aware of who you’re pulling in to your circle of friends and how you are with your family.

You can begin to think about something you’d like in another life instead of your next life. Be open to creating what you want some time in your future. If you think, in my next life I’d love to have five children, when you get back to spirit and see what you’ve learned, you may change your mind and want no children. But you can think, in one of your future lives I’d like to experience having five children. I don’t know when I’ll be ready to create that life, but that’s something I’d like to experience. The Council encourages SG to be flexible in terms of which life they experience their desires because this automatically happens when you return to spirit.

We’re giving you a hint that more things are coming into your life you’d like to include. Some things are also coming you wouldn’t want to include in your life. Enjoy this and you can make a running list of what you think you’d like in another life, but not necessarily your next life.

The Council says when you review your life in spirit you see things differently. There may be situations in your current life that were meant to be created and these situations may change the idea of what you want in a future life. When you go back to spirit things are very different. You’re always surrounded by love. You learn very quickly. And you can help people on Earth while you’re there or choose to return to Earth right away.

The Council says of course you can begin to create what you want in another lifetime, but we guarantee you’ll change that thought when you return to spirit. You can create what you want your heaven to be like. Whatever you imagine is not even half of how wonderful it is when you get there. Just enjoy your present moment and you’ll be wonderfully surprised when you get there.

What Past Lives Do My Friend and I Share?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, CuriousPisces, who asks if a friend and I have any significant past lives together, what were our roles, and how does it impact our current life? My friend asked me why someone like me has come into his life because he feels closer to me than others and feels a spiritual connection.

The Council says you shared many lives together. The most recent they see you were female he was male and you were both medical doctors during World War I. You worked very well together attending to the soldiers.

Look in your current life. The closeness you feel for each other, is it that you’re in sync with each other? That’s the closeness you had in this past life during the war. And you wished to experience this closeness again, but not during a war. You wanted to experience a lifetime during peacetime where you could see how much fun you could have together just knowing what each other thought. And you desired more happiness and free time in your current life. This is the most recent life and the lessons you want to experience in your current lifetime come from that lifetime.

The Council says it was part of your planning in spirit before you came into this life to have a romantic relationship together in your current life. You planned for your relationship to develop according to what else was going on in your lives. You allowed each other the freedom to have someone else come into your lives, but you wanted a close relationship and it could go into a permanent intimate relationship.

The impact of this past life on your current life is the intimacy between the two of you, but not under the pressure of war. There was a lot of tension in that life during World War I and not much time to enjoy life. Your friend died during the war. What you planned in this life was to be in a peaceful situation and not under pressure. You wanted to find things you both enjoyed and have the time and freedom to experience that together.
