Can The Council Help Me Overcome My Insomnia?

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

Violet: My question is about my insomnia. It’s been a chronic problem for years and no medications or natural supplements seem to be helping me anymore, taking a toll on my life.

Council: We see this.

Violet: What could be the reason for this insomnia?

Council: Well we’d say in your reality what you’re living now makes a lot of sense. In a past life it was very dangerous for you to go to sleep. You belonged to one of the so-called gangs on the street in France in the early 1800s, and you committed a crime and were thrown in jail.

Now back at that time what happened when you were thrown in jail was that you were automatically going to have your head cut off or be hung, but you never knew when because the guards would sneak into the cell in the middle of the night and drag out whoever was picked to be killed. So living that way you and many others were afraid to go to sleep because you didn’t know once you fell asleep if they would come in and grab you and take you out and execute you.

So that memory is still with you, And what’s needed now is to make this connection that the fear of sleeping and keeps you awake is a memory that you brought in with you. So when you start to, what we call connect the dots, you can realize that’s why this is happening. It should begin with understanding to lighten up and eventually go away.

So we’d say the best thing for you to do would be to meditate on this past life. And read up on how prisoners were treated in French prisons and you’ll know, you’ll get a feeling when you read about these things, of what you went through. And so when you relive that life through reading something or watching something, the connection is made and the insomnia will begin to go away.

So meditate. When you go to sleep, many people put white light around them and ask to have a peaceful night. And for you, it would always be to tell yourself that you are safe. That was then, this is now, and it’s just something that you brought in. You wanted to remember this past life and wanted to know you could have the control and the safety of sleeping and feeling good. And that’s what you’re trying to heal at this time.

Violet: Can The Council orient me as to how to overcome this huge challenge and live normally?

Council: Just make the connection to this past life. And at this time it’s important for you when you make the connection to know that was then, and yes I was executed, but look at this, I’m a spirit, I’m back, I’m fine, and I’m living this life because I wanted to discover this past life and know that now I have the choice of making it heal, and making it go away, and mainly making it safe for yourself. That’s what is needed at this time.

  1. Hi, Sad & Confused. We’ll ask The Council about your relationship with your husband as soon as we can and we’ll post an audio recording of their response as soon as it’s ready. From past similar questions it’s not likely The Council will be specific about what your husband has been up to, but we expect they’ll offer guidance about how to move forward with your predicament. Thank you for your question. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  2. Hi Cynthia, Bob & The Council,

    Thank you for your time and effort in helping people! I always enjoy reading the questions and answers, so very insightful.

    I have a personal question that I’d like to ask The Council, if I may. I am currently struggling with trust in my marriage. My husband and I have been married for 20 years now, with most of them being good years. We just went through the teenage years with our son and that stress put a strain on our relationship. Our son is now moved out and we are able to focus on “us” again. It has come to my attention that during our strained time, my husband was turning to online outlets for “entertainment”. To what extent, I don’t know. He has admitted to a few minor instances but denies most everything I ask him about when it comes to his online behavior. Without going into specific details, in my gut, I feel like he is lying or leaving some big pieces of the puzzle out. Trust is a big deal to me and I have a hard time dealing with lying and deception. There is no way for me to confirm my suspicions, so I’m left to just wonder. Wonder about the sincerity of our relationship. Wonder about what he is lying about. Wonder about what else he is hiding from me. I need to move on for the sake of my sanity and our relationship. But I need clarity. Are you able to give me any details about my current predicament? Do I have a reason to worry so much? Can you tell me exactly what he has been up to? He is my life partner and it breaks my heart to have to wonder about these things, it hurts. I want the trust back. I want the safety and security back. I don’t want to feel like my other half is a stranger who hides things from me. I’d rather know the truth than walk blindly through life. Thank you
