Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Will This New Course Help My Career And To Start My Own Company?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Pursuing Dreams.

Pursuing Dreams: Hello. I’m a computer science professional and I’d like to get The Council’s opinion on taking a new course I’m thinking about for the last couple of months now. This course is very different from my regular line of work and it’s also very challenging.

I always wanted to study at an Ivy League university, but due to financial constraints I wasn’t able to do it earlier. Now I’m in a situation where I think I can take up this challenge. This is a big shift from what I’m doing right now.

Can The Council please guide me if this thought of taking up a new course and pursuing a master’s degree is something I should go for?

Council: It’s always a wonderful thing to learn something new. We encourage everyone to do that. Keep learning. Keep reading.

We would say what we see for you here pre-planning this life, you thought it would be wonderful to come in and study the science of space and space travel. You wanted to learn about planets, how things are evolving, if there’s life on other planets, and if there are what we’d call aliens here. You wanted to know more than what’s acceptable here. You wanted to go beyond. You wanted to learn about other dimensions.

Any course that would take you into learning about spaceships and how they work, you’d find very interesting. You’d find this very challenging to your mind and this would take you into different fields. Anything to do with space travel, with planetary learning, anything about how to exist in space, anything about whether there’s life in space. That was your pre-planned interest.

If there’s something that’s come up for you that’s new, that you’re drawn to from what you’ve learned and experienced so far in life, we’d say go for it. It’s coming to you for a reason.

But there’s a change that you want. We see here there are many, many possibilities. Don’t just look into one change, but into many different areas that you can go into. You’ll find the answer of which way to start on this new path, but move forward, keep questioning, and keep learning. That’s what you wanted in your current life.

PD: I also wanted to check if this course will help my career and eventually my own company as an entrepreneur.

Council: There are courses that would help you. At this time what we see is really wanted is something brand new, and related to space travel. And this may sound very far out, as you would say, but look into it and see how you feel. But if there is a subject that has your interest, and it’s always because it pops up in your head, or you’ve seen something, or you’ve heard something, take this course. It will be the beginning of leading you to other courses, to other interests, and that’s how you expand. And so, yes, move forward, take classes, and learn.

PD: Since taking this course is going to be a big endeavor for me, I’d love to know The Council’s guidance. Thanks for all you do.

Council: It’s always wonderful to take that big investment and move forward. You will always get pleasure, you’ll always get new experiences, you’ll learn, you’ll feel better about yourself, and you’ll keep moving forward. It will bring you to one subject, then another subject, and another subject, and doors will open.

Be excited about what you can create. Don’t question everything until you drive yourself crazy. And like we always say, “Gee, I like this. It’s exciting to think I can do this.” Then do it. It’s a part of your higher self that’s saying, “Yeah, yeah, you don’t remember in your human body, but we’ve planned this.” So do it. Go forward.

Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Pursuing Dreams 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.

How Can My Positivity Outweigh Other People’s Negativity?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader, and it’s a little different from our usual posts because the day after we did the session to answer Anonymous’s questions, The Council told Cynthia they had a few things they wanted to add. So we did a follow-up session the next day and added its transcription after the transcription of Anonymous’s session, which starts immediately below.

Anonymous: There’s a lot of chaos in our world right now which I understand from you is a series of challenges that we chose in order to turn it around.

Council: And we’ve all decided to be here on Earth in this chaos. In spirit we knew this chaos had a great possibility of happening according to how people think and what they created. As a group, this is what we’ve created.

Anonymous: But a lot of people are convinced that humans are fundamentally flawed, greedy, prejudiced, etc., and basically that we and our Earth are doomed.

Council: You, the people here, and the Earth aren’t doomed. The Earth has a long, long life ahead of it. Not everybody is greedy. Not everybody is negative. This negativity is here for us to see it, and then to look at what you’re learning from this. Do I want to be like this? Watch how other people react and how they talk, but then go back into yourself. How do you want to act? Are you being judgemental? Or are you allowing these people to be who they are? And are you allowing the part of yourself that you want to come forward to come forward?

Anonymous: The scorching temperatures around the world are only making people feel more negative. I understand everyone has their own path and timeline for understanding we are powerful spirits who can manifest what we desire.

Council: You can manifest absolutely anything you want. There’s no question of that.

Anonymous: Sometimes I wonder if my positivity is enough, though, when so many others are feeling so negatively.

Council: Do you know that one little candle can erase so much darkness? One positive thought can undo hundreds of negative thoughts.

The people that are here and seeing this negativity but are being positive, there’s a reason you’re here. You’ve come here to try and change this. If you see the negativity and you judge it, or you hate people for being like that, then you’re becoming part of that negativity. It’s your place to see the negativity and continue to have positive thoughts.

There are always people that are negative, and there are always people that are positive. But at this time the positive people in your reality have a lot of work to do. Unfortunately there are many, many more positive people than we hear about. And those thoughts and those desires of how you wish it could be, and how you saw how it was before, and can we go back to being happy and simple? The answer is yes. And you are here to keep thinking about this, to keep feeling it, and to keep being positive, no matter what is going on around you. That is your purpose. Together all of us will change that.

And we here in spirit help you every day to find that positive thought, to find that positive feeling. If you allow it in, you’ll begin to see a change in yourself. And then you’ll see a change in the people around you because as you change, your energy will touch the people around you. And then you’ll see it reach out into the world. You’ll start hearing more positive things on the news. It’s so important at this time to stay with that positivity. It’s more powerful than you can even imagine.

Anonymous: Can the positivity of one person override or outweigh the negativity of many in one’s own reality?

Council: Yes, it can.

Anonymous: It feels a bit scary to ask this question because it feels like asking, Is the weight of all the world’s problems really on me to solve?

Council: The weight of everyone’s problems, or the world’s problems, are not for you to solve. Your job is to shine. Shine that light, those positive thoughts, because the people that are around you, you will not change them. They will see how you are, they will be in your energy, and all of a sudden, on their own, they’ll start looking at things differently. They will have a little bit better outlook, and then that will grow.

And so as you’re around people, it’s good to remember you can’t control or change anyone. You can only be yourself, as bright and shining a light as you can be, and as positive as you can be. And as these other people get ready, they’ll see it. They’ll want to be part of what you represent. They’ll start thinking to themselves: How come you’re feeling good and you’re so positive? I want some of that. And they’ll watch you. And all of a sudden little changes will become real inside of them.

That’s why we say it’s so important to be yourself. Don’t fall into that negativity. It’s your job to be loving, to be the spirit that you are that’s shining and holding the light for this reality, to stay in that. That’s your job. That’s the only job you have, to bring more happiness, more calmness, more stability, into this world. Be that light.

Anonymous: But I’d like to clarify how effective being positive, meditating, and manifesting is when we live in a world with other people with different beliefs and desires.

Council: It’s your job to let these people have their beliefs and their desires until they get to a place where they realize they want something different.

Anonymous: Sometimes oppositional beliefs and desires all clamoring for attention.

Council: This is where you stay positive. Let people talk the negative talk, or worry, or complain, or be angry. You stay in the light. You show compassion, show some understanding, and you don’t try to change anyone. Know that it’s your place to allow everyone to be. And as you stay positive, guess what? You’re helping these people grow. You’re putting your positivity out there, and then it’s up to them to take that change and to let it in. Your job is to send it out, and let it be their job to accept it.

Anonymous: This also relates to politics, which shapes our world in big ways. If I want a law passed that I think is just, humane, and will bring happiness to more people, but there are other people who are against it, how does my positive thinking counter their negative thinking? Can it overcome their repression?

Council: Yes, it can, but stay in that positivity.

Anonymous: It’s hard to not get stuck in the place of anger and even hatred when it comes to politics.

Council: Yes, exactly, but when you do get stuck, when you realize you hate this person or that person, you hate what they believe, you now have come down to their level. Their negativity has reached you instead of your positivity reaching them. And so when you feel negative, all you have to do is say, “Oh, I recognize what I’m doing. I’m falling into negativity.” And change your thoughts. Don’t beat yourself up. Don’t get mad. You say, “Aah, I recognize this. This negativity is so strong that it’s getting through to me. Well I’ll just shine my light. I will come from my heart. I know I have a job to do, and it’s to be positive. And you’ll see things change.

Anonymous: When it comes to politics, and I don’t just mean the United States, I mean globally. Having a new way to think about my own power and agency would be very helpful and would allow me to escape that trap.

Council: So sit and meditate, and go into your heart, and let a green light shine from your heart, and watch it get bigger and bigger and fill up the room. Then see it fill up your street, your neighborhood, your state, your country. Put it around the whole globe, and fill that green with love. That’s your job.

Additional Council material recorded the following day

Council: And so we wanted to add this little bit of information because there are many questions about being positive, staying in the light, and showing compassion. And we’d like to say here that in many of the questions, when we answer, we give the same answer. We give it differently, we say it differently, but it all means the same thing. Different people understand our answers in different ways because we’re not all the same and our thinking isn’t the same.

And so we’d like to say here that all of the answers to why we’re here and what we need to do are simple. The answers are simple and they will always be the same. This doesn’t mean that it’s easy to do, but if you’ll reflect on past readings and information, you will say it is simple. There’s no message that has many difficult things you have to do. It is simple.

And it’s simple because you are the one, and the only one, that’s in charge of your life. You create your own world. You create it with your thoughts. We all volunteered to be here, or we wouldn’t be here. And we know there will be times of peace and there will be times of chaos, but we are here for one reason only. And that is to take the love that we experience in spirit and bring it forward into the reality that we are creating.

How do you do this? You don’t need a lot of money. You don’t need to travel. You do it with your thoughts. And why is that? Because at this time in the history of what you’re creating, we want to take a step forward. We want to know that we are in charge of our lives, and what you say in your thoughts is the most important thing. Your thoughts are such wonderful tools – your choice, whether to be negative or whether to be positive. And so the whole world that you create wants to step forward. You’ve all chosen to do this with your mind and with your thoughts.

And so we say, be positive. At all times try to think positive. The negative will come in, that is true. And there’s no reason to beat yourself up, but to recognize it and say, “No. Alright, there it is again. I’m being negative. I’m falling into the negative energy. But now I’ll change my thoughts. I’ll replace it with something better.”

When you’re angry with someone you think a better thought. You find a way to accept who they are and go on being positive, sending love. And if all you can do is stand in the middle of a circle of light and send it out, then that’s good. That’s a beginning. Stay in the light. Stay positive.

Remember, we’ve all agreed to this life. We all agreed to take this humankind and let it advance, not with hard work, not with struggle, but with thoughts. How simple that is. Is it easy? It’s up to you, but it is simple. Stay in the light. Stay positive. Send good thoughts out everywhere in your reality. You will see the change. This is the reason you’ve come to the Earth path and we thought it would be helpful to just add this on and clarify it a little bit.

Listen to the entire 16-minute audio recording of our two sessions with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about them. 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.

Please Help Me With Some Career Guidance

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Linda.

Linda: I would like to ask The Council if they could guide me regarding my career calling.

When I was a teenager I thought I knew exactly what university to go to and what to study. Unfortunately my plans were disrupted by physical and emotional abuse from my father and stepmother, and my plans to study stopped making sense. I started to feel lost in my life and many things stopped giving me joy.

Council: That feeling of being lost, when you remember that feeling, that was one of the things you wanted to do when you came here. It was to help people that also had problems of feeling lost, whatever their reasons were. That’s part of why you pre-planned this experience of being lost.

Now that you know you pre-planned this, in order to move forward it’s good to review your pre-plan, to go through the memories of feeling lost, what you felt like, and if you wished you had someone help you, what would that look like? This will give you a clue about what you have to learn to move forward in your career.

Linda: My family was always important to me, and losing them caused me great pain and grief.

Council: And so you’ll meet others that lose parts of their family, whether from abuse, or death, or sickness, or moving far away. You’ll find people who are suffering the loss of family.

Linda: Instead of focusing on my career choice, I was looking for answers to my questions. I wanted to know why I went through so much hardship as a child in so many ways.

Council: You went through this to learn from it, to recognize it, and to have such compassion and such understanding when others come to you with that problem.

Linda: Now I know that this experience was a pre-birth agreement I made…

Council: Exactly.

Linda: …and that the purpose in my life is to help people.

Council: Exactly.

Linda: But I still don’t know how to help. Can you please help me and guide me on this?

Council: You can help people by being a friend and listening to what they need to share. And sometimes listening is just having an ear so they feel someone is there for them and you don’t have to jump in with how to fix it. Sometimes helping people is taking classes and getting licenses to run your own business the way you want to help people. And sometimes you can volunteer for abused children or orphans. You can volunteer for the elderly, who will feel very lost because their families have no time for them.

There are many, many ways you can reach out and help. But we’d say, at first, listen to your friends, listen to the people you know, or people you work with. What are they talking about? And without making a big deal about it, say something that will help. Show some compassion. That’s how you begin to help. And you’ll see more and more people will be drawn to you because they’ll feel your energy of wanting to be there for them. And so start slowly and start simply.

Linda: Thinking back on what I really love, I found that I enjoyed finding answers to my challenges. I also enjoy helping children because I feel I can connect well with them. Is the right path for me to become a Child Psychologist?

Council: That’s a wonderful path for you. When you think about it, how do you feel? Does it give you joy? Are you excited to go into this? Are you excited to take on studying and to learn and share it? If you get joy, then this is exactly what’s meant for you.

Linda: And start studying psychology?

Council: Yes.

Linda: If not, is there a profession that’s right for me that I’d find fulfilling and be able to help those who’ve been through something similar to me?

Council: Anything with children, anything with the elderly, whether you went into nursing, whether you went into being a caregiver for many people, or you just took care of one person on an ongoing basis. You need to find places where you’re needed, where people need you.

And when you look around and have it in your mind that you want to help people, all of a sudden doors will open because you’re in line with your intention. Just by thinking, “I want to help, where do I go?” you’re putting that out there and you’ll always be shown the way.

Bob: It sounds like you’re saying that studying Psychology is good for Linda, but it may not be necessary.

Council: Anything that makes you feel good, going back to school and learning Psychology and having a career in this, if it feels good, it’s for you. If you’d rather not go through all that schooling and just work in a nursing home, in a hospital, or in an orphanage, then that’s the way to go.

When you think of each thing to try, stop and see how you feel. Okay, I’m going to study Psychology. How does that feel? Okay, I’m going to work in a nursing home. How does that feel? Okay, I’m going to go volunteer with children in an after-school program. How does that feel? Everything that occurs to you to do, stop, sit with it, how does it feel? See yourself doing these things. How does it feel? And your answer will be right in front of you.

Linda: When I look at the people around me, I feel like they all know what they’re supposed to do in life.

Council: Everyone thinks everyone else knows what to do. Everyone knows what path to be on. Everyone knows how wonderful life is. And of course, everyone is going through their own challenges and their own personal growth. Many people have no idea what they’re supposed to do in life. They take a jump, a leap of faith, and try something. We think this is wonderful, but when you take that jump, before you jump, before you lift your feet off the ground, how does it feel?

Linda: And I’m ashamed that I still don’t know what to do.

Council: It’s wonderful that you don’t know what to do. Because by putting it out there – I don’t know, I need signs, I need a direction – you’ll create many different possibilities. You’re not just honed to one thing. Think about what you’re doing as an adventure. I don’t know what to do, but it’s coming to me. I’ll be shown the way. And of course, you will be.

Listen to the entire 9-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Linda 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.
