What will you ask Spirit?

A Past Life in a Concentration Camp to Experience Inmates’ Feelings

This post answers follow-up questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari, who previously asked The Council some questions. We published the post, Have My Past Lives Influenced My Suffering in My Current Life? in response to those earlier questions. Mari says, In that previous post you said I was Polish and in a German concentration camp during World War II, and I wanted to experience the camp inmates’ feelings on a personal level. I would assume the inmates primary feeling would be fear, but I don’t feel fear.

The Council asks Mari if she thinks fear is the only thing they felt. They would feel hopeless, depressed, hurt, and some would want to give up on life altogether. There are so many different feelings, and fear would be part of it, but it may not be something you’re picking up on right now.

Think of being in one of these concentration camps. What would you face every day? Would you try and have hope? Would you have a good day every now and then? Would it just be a life of complete horror with no hope, no wish to go on, and no belief you can change this? There were many feelings you had in that lifetime.

Mari says, I only feel sadness, stuck, lonely, mostly hopeless, self-pity, and self-doubt. The Council says all of these feelings you’ve mentioned, don’t you believe that is also what these people in the camps went through? They have gone through every one of those feelings at one time or another.

Mari says, I’ve been actually trying to follow Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book, Breaking The Habit Of Being Yourself: How To Lose Your Mind And Create A New One. I haven’t gotten to the main part of the book because it takes so much time, but I’m meditating up to that point. I also read most of the spiritual books. You said I should have hope like I did in my lifetime in the concentration camp, but did my life get better, or did that hope do nothing?

The Council says your hope in that lifetime changed your feelings a little bit, but what you have to realize is that in your current lifetime, what you wanted was to understand those feelings from that past lifetime. You wanted to wonder about it,  think about it, read about it, and then try to picture what it would have been like for you and what you would have wanted.

We’re not trying to break the habit of being you. Being you is the result of all the lives you’ve lived. Each life makes you stronger. Each life you learn lessons from. Ask yourself if you repeated these lessons, or did you learn from them and not have to repeat them. You’re a wonderful spirit that has come back to Earth time and time again and learned, brought goodness, brought hope, and brought love in. That is what you wanted to do in your current lifetime. You planned to learn about these feelings and see if you can be grateful you went through that experience. Pat yourself on the back that you came into your current life to go through some of those feelings again, to learn about them, and to always bring love into them.

Mari says, I also have a hypothetical question. If I were to escape my current lifetime, would I have to repeat the same lessons or not, since I chose to have this lesson learning experience? The Council says you would not have to repeat these lessons. There’s no one that will force you to repeat them, but you’d still want to learn them. You might pick a different way to learn them rather than hearing about it and imagining it. You will only go through these lessons again if you wish to go through them. No one will force you to go into them. You can find another way to learn everything you want to learn.

The Council closes by sending everyone love, and light, and energy, and happiness. We wish you all to feel we are here to help you, whether we speak with you, or we are just here sending you light. That’s what we’re all about. We’re about supporting each other and helping each other understand what lessons you’ve picked in your current lifetime. We’re here to give you some guidance to keep you on your path, show you how to experience it, and change the way it is because that’s what you’ve planned.

Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Mari and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it. You can also ask The Council your own question by typing it into one of the Comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages.

  1. Hi, Mari. Interesting distinction between occurrences that are definitely pre-planned, and occurrences that are pre-planned as possibilities. We’ll be happy to ask The Council your question about pre-planned events in one’s life when we have time and we’ll post an audio recording of their response as soon as it’s ready. Thanks for your question. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  2. Hi Bob, Cynthia and the Council,

    Thanks for answering my question above. I have another one. I’ve read in some books on after life and reincarnation that certain important events in life are preplanned with a high probability of happening, e.g. marrying particular person, going to particular school, having a child, certain disabilities. That no matter which way you go that even will most likely occur. Other events are supposedly preplanned only as possibilities. Is that true? You’ve indicated in many places that one has to believe in something etc. for it to occur.

  4. Hi Bob and Cynthia,
    I have a question about asking the universe yes or no questions. I don’t really trust tarot cards or pendulums to answer yes or no questions so the other day I decided to ask the universe for a sign instead. I told myself if I saw a hot pink car (which is very rare to see in the area I live) in this specific time frame the answer to my question is no. My question was one with an answer that is set in stone because I was asking about something that already happned that I didn’t know the truth about. I won’t put the question that I asked here but it was similar to “did so and so lie to me about this thing that they said” No more than a few minutes later as I’m driving on the highway a hot pink car merges onto the highway and plops itself right in front of me. I was in total shock and felt like it couldn’t possibly be a coincidence because not only did it show up so quickly but it merged onto the highway and plopped itself smack dab in front of me. I’ve done this a few more times with other yes or no questions and have had similar experiences. I want to know if the answers I’m getting when I play this little game with the universe are actually true or if this all just a coincidence. Really looking forward to what you have to say. Thanks.
