Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Welcome

Bob & Cynthia

Welcome to Ask The Council, a blog where you can ask a group of loving and wise spirit guides a question and get an answer, for free. You can contact us for a paid private session with The Council, and you can read the questions other readers have asked and the answers they’ve received. Other posts contain quotations from The Council that we hope you find inspiring, uplifting, and educational.

Ask The Council a Question

If there’s a question you’ve been thinking about and you’re curious how The Council might answer it, we encourage you to either use the blog’s Comments feature to ask your question, or contact us for a private session. You can click here to go to the ‘Let us know what you think about this post, or ask The Council a question’ section of this Welcome post and type your question there or you can type your question in the same section at the bottom of any post that inspires you to ask a question or leave a comment.

Since the blog is currently a project we do in our spare time it can take a while for us to do a session with The Council on a question and then publish a post on the session. Depending on the question and the session it can sometimes take weeks after a question is asked to publish a post with The Council’s answer. Please be patient.

The Council

Cynthia is able to communicate with a group of five non-physical spirit guides in a manner similar to the way Esther Hicks communicates with and speaks for the spirit guides, Abraham, and Jane Roberts communicated and spoke for the spirit guide, Seth. I (Bob) basically interview The Council as they speak through Cynthia during what we refer to as a session. Sessions generally last 5-15 minutes and are usually audio recorded. During the session Cynthia is aware of what The Council is saying and she also receives visual impressions and other types of telepathic communication from them.

The Council’s Basic Guidance

Since we began these sessions with The Council around 2009 they consistently emphasize a few basic ideas that we attempt to summarize here:

1) You are an eternal spiritual being in a physical body.

You are the energy and vibration of continuously expanding love, intelligence, and joy.

Your physical experience in your physical body and your psychological experience of your personality is a small part of the totality of who you truly are.

Let yourself imagine from time to time what it might feel like to experience more of the wondrous totality of who you really are, and don’t be surprised if you are able to experience this more often.

2) You are the creator of all that you experience.

As you open to the possibility your true nature is greater than you ordinarily perceive, it becomes easier to consider the possibility that this expanded you is truly the creator of everything that you experience.

If you’re used to thinking of yourself in a more limited sense, the idea that you are the creator of your experience may be difficult to understand. Our post, What About This Idea That We Create Whatever We Desire, offers insights into this idea.

3) You are here to expand the love you are into physical reality.

You chose, as a spiritual being, to come into this physical reality to experience the joy of expanding the love you are as a spiritual being, into this physical reality. This is your purpose for being here.

  1. Hi Council, Cynthia and Bob,

    I want to ask The Council about a lovely experience I attracted. I recently hiked to the top of Cathedral Rock in Sedona where I discovered a Najavo spirit healer performing a meditation/ceremony. I was very moved by his singing and suddenly became overwhelmed with emotion and started to cry. After he finished, he was surprised to see me and my friend. Again, when I expressed gratitude at having been present and how powerful the experience was, I nearly started crying uncontrollably. What’s up with the crying? Are Vortexes real? And what happened?

    He went on his way down the mountain ahead of us and in a wonderful moment of Law of Attraction, just as my friend was talking about him at the bottom of the mountain, we suddenly saw him ahead of us. To make a long story short, he invited us to come with him to a Spiritual Cleansing ceremony he was conducting at a nearby river. Excited by the opportunity, we went and it was a lovely experience. As part of the ceremony, we smoked a Peace Pipe (no drugs involved). However, I did feel the mild elevated feeling I experience in a great meditation. Can you offer any guidance about the greater meaning of this experience?

    Love and gratitude

  2. I left a 25 year marriage 2 1/2 years agoto a man who I believe is a narcissistic sociopath. I strived for fairness and spent over a year and a half investigating our finances and his financial wrongdoings in preparation of our settlement. The mediator would not hear details. Emotionally, I broke down and settled to it I later realized it was at a large financial cost to me. At the time I believed in my mantra light triumphs dark and continued to believe that truth prevails on the universe. However now I feel lost, financially scared, and despite all the horrible things he’s done, I miss him because I’m afraid of living a life alone, unloved and unable to do things that once may have been possible in our marriage , Like travel. I am confused because I have low motivation and don’t have direction on what to do next. I’m 57 years old and feel like time is passing me by… And I know stress is taking it’s toll on my previously healthy body. I’m confused why I have suffered rather than gotten to a better place because of this divorce. I have had a strong intuition in the past but it’s not strong anymore. I used to achieve things but now I struggle to get out of bed. I’ve been given the lessonlesson that life is not fair… But still want to believe light triumphs dark. ( i’ve been called an earth angel in the past). I don’t know what I’m supposed to be doing. I even think about going back despite all the horrible things he has done to me including discrediting my character, lies, financial abuse, verbal and emotional abuse. I am empathetic to that hurt little boy inside of him rather than the horrible things he’s done. I am looking for guidance as to what the universe has in store for me. I would be very grateful to any insights to help me get on the path to happiness, fulfilment and being able to give back again. I hope to hear from you. thank you.

  3. Hi Cynthia and Bob, thank you so much for all of this great content and value you put other there with this service for everyone I really appreciate it! If you would please be so kind as to answer the following questions I would be very greatful and it would be much appreciated. I am a male aged 34 coming on the cusp of a new 7 year cycle and was wondering the following:

    1. My whole working life I have been in corporate IT however in April this year my path led me into some trainings offering work which helps and coaches people and I learnt some modalities of an energetic and spiritual nature. I am attempting to start a business in all of this, it can get quite overwhelming at times though and I was wondering if the council can shed any light into whether this is a great path and vocation for me?

    2. Also after many years single I finally found the one I thought was it after all of my studies mentioned above. She seemed to match all of my criteria and energically I seemed to feel a very magnetic enegy towards her even though we had only spent a few days in each others company. She lived in another country and the pull was so strong so i packed up where i was and moved to the country which was also my home town anyway and to my dismay she had found somebody else. I am wondering if the council can shed any light if this was a karmic issue or whether I am projecting limiting beliefs in the area of relationships from my unconscious? This was the closest I had ever come to drawing towards me a relationship that I whole heartedly could see myself being with as there was always a hint of hesitance with others in my past.

    Many thanks and lots of love to you both

  4. Hello Council. Can you help me? About two years ago I was told by my spiritual therapist that she saw a man as my future mate. I really laughed because I only want to be with women. But I was told later by other two intuitives exactly the same thing, they are friends with my family for over 15 years, I trust them. I looked for trusted tarot readers and they say exactly the same. But I don’t want this to happen, I don’t care how good this can be for me. But I also fear that I don’t have the strength to stand up for my ideals if I actually meet this man because I am very lonely, and because something inside of me is also pushing me to do it, even though I don’t want it. In a way I assume that I planned to be in this situation (it sounds like something I would do, to give me no escape), and I know it is supposed to be for healing for past lives where I was abused by men but I don’t want it to happen no matter what. I enter a state of panic only by thinking about it and it really damages me to feel like that. I don’t want to betray my gay community too. I want the love of my life to be a woman and I want to form a family with her. But I have prayed for my angels, talked to them, and this still shows up in readings. What’s worse is that I feel pushed to do it, like I don’t have any option. I was wondering if the Council could comment on my situation and help me to change my life to what I want it to be, to have a meaningful life with a woman with whom I can have a family. Regards from Finland

  5. Hello again. I have a question about a recent past life regression therapy session I had last summer. To say it was mind-blowing is an understatement. It truly transformed my entire perspective on life and death.

    Under hypnosis, instead of reliving some of my past lives, I went to another realm or dimension that I assume was between lives. I felt like I was floating in vast space, but it was incredibly peaceful and full of love and light. I felt truly my spirit expanding and all-encompassing, like I was near Source. This was a place I didn’t want to leave and remained there for a good 45 minutes during the session!

    I briefly talked about a past life where I was crippled and my grandmother carried me around. But I had no desire to talk about any other lives or who this grandmother is in my current life. Soon my spirit guides or higher spirits spoke through me, giving me advice. My questions for the council is, who were these beings? Were they just my “higher self” speaking? And why didn’t I go to any past lives instead? Do they see if I’m heading down the right path in life or if I’m stuck? And what is this place or dimension I went to during the session? Thank you for any insight!

  6. Hello Bob, Cynthia, and Thr Council,

    I kept saying That I wasn’t going to ask, but I just can’t make sense of what is happening. Can The Council be so bold as to provide a spiritual perspective on the Trump presidency and its effect on the United States and the rest of the world?

    I’ve been fascinated by the thought of reincarnation and past lives for many years. I would love to learn any information in regards to who I was in a past life/lives.

    Thanks again for your help, I hope you are having a wonderful day!

  8. Hello Bob,Cynthia and the council,

    I have a question regarding my 5 year old son. It would be great if the council can please guide me what are his gifts and what can I do as a mother to help him achieve his learnings for this reincarnation. I feel sometimes its tough job as a parent to identify the kid’s gifts – which can add so much happiness if I help him through his journey of life.

    If we had past lives together with me or some of my family members and if they are trying work somethings out – how can I ease the things out for him and them?

    I would appreciate any kind of suggestions and the inputs from council that will help me understand my role in his learnings and what are things I can take care of that will help him the best.

    Thanks so much,
    Love and light!

  9. Well hello again. May this find you well after a busy summer! I now have two sons. One of which is nearly 8 and incredibly interested in what “gifts” he has in this lifetime. I encourage him to practice meditation and to manifest whatever it is that peaks his interest, but I would love to have some knowledge about who he is and what he’s come here to do. I would also like to know the same thing for the baby. I have been told that I myself, derive from a Goddess realm and have heard tales of many past lives, and this information (may it be true or not) has helped me immensely in my process. I would like something similar to gift my children with and any tips on how to help them achieve what they’ve come here to do! Thank you so much.

    With love and gratitude,

  10. I’m hoping you guys can help me. My life has been on a downward trajectory for at least five years now and it just does not stop no matter what I do& no matter what I try. In the last 2 years some unexplainable things started happening that I can’t talk about with most people because their response is that I’m insane. I’m trying to figure out what’s going on. What is My Soul Purpose &why am I constantly stuck in negative situations regardless of my attitude or what I do. I’m just at the end of my rope given I truly have nothing left to lose at this point and it’s a little scary. Thanks for any and all help it’s much appreciated.

  11. Dear Council, Cynthia and Bob,
    Hello again! I’ve really appreciated your help in the past and I hope you can help me again.

    18 months ago I ended an 8 year relationship with my husband, who was verbally and emotionally abusive to myself and my 13yo son (not his child). Although we’re apart, we also have a child together, so we see each other or communicate almost every day, which makes it hard to heal, and gives him many opportunities to continue to manipulate my emotions.

    I’ve had 2 other failed longterm relationships, but only this one has been difficult. I’ve found it completely emotionally devastating. I’m struggling so much with the constant emotional pain, despite being in weekly counselling for 2 years (since before the breakup).

    I feel such a strong and deep, unconditionally loving connection to him, despite his juvenile, abusive behaviour and continued dishonesty and betrayal. He has not earned my respect and hasn’t made any efforts to repair our relationship or get me back (apart from constantly telling me he wants me back). He does not deserve to have me in his life, yet somehow I just can’t let go.

    This week I was tortured by the likelihood that he has a new woman in his life (although he’s been saying he can’t be with anyone but me). He hasn’t admitted it yet but the obvious signs are there, and our child has told me bits and pieces about meeting her. I can’t deal with and don’t understand the pain I feel, it makes no sense to myself, or my family & friends to still have these intense feelings for him. They’re aren’t going away, even though it makes no logical sense to be in a terrible, harmful relationship with him anymore.

    Now that I’ve learned about his new woman I’m completely distraught. I feel like I can’t function, can’t work, can barely get through my days, and feel worthless and betrayed. I feel our marriage was meaningless to him, because we only agreed 3 weeks ago that we weren’t going to get back together at all. And I feel betrayed that he constantly said he wanted me back, and that he could never be with anyone else, and now suddenly he’s moved on. I’m soul destroyed, my heart feels like it’s permanently crushed. I’m SO devastatingly lonely and pining for the love we had, wishing for someone else to love but feeling like I’ll never love anyone but him. I feel our marriage was a divine bond, that we’re deeply connected at soul level. I love him so much and would do anything to have a healthy relationship with him, but he has been unwilling to take the necessary steps, and seems to prefer inertia and to just give up than to get help or counselling for himself.

    I’m hoping you can shed some light on the cause of my intense feelings and hopefully offer some advice please? I feel desperate, anxious, worthless, alone, and like a failure. Thank you again, with much love, Jolanda

  13. Hello,

    I have a question on marriage. I have been with my significant other for about 12 years. We are both 39. I have been married twice before, my boyfriend has never been married.

    In the early years of our relationship, I did not want to get married again (for obvious reasons), and would lightly joke about not wanting marriage (not often though). About 3 years ago, my thoughts and feelings changed regarding marriage and I finally brought it up to my partner in a ‘no pressure way’, basically saying “I know I wasn’t interested before, but I am now. I don’t want to pressure you and just thought I’d put it out there, so you can think about it.” He basically said ok, this was in January.

    A month ago, someone introduced him as my husband and he made the comment “No, just boyfriend”, laughing about it. This hurt my feelings, but I didn’t say anything, nor have I brought up the topic since January because I haven’t wanted to pressure him.

    I truly feel we were and are meant to be together. We are best friends, lovers, partners… You name it. I have no doubts, he is a very good man and I know he loves me very much.

    Are we meant to take our relationship to the next level? Is he interested in marriage?

    Thank you so much.

  14. I was hoping I could get assistance please. My life is on a downward trajectory and has been for years. I’m doing everything in my power to fix it and I cannot do it. It feels as if everyday will surely be worse than the previous .I’m living everyday in 100% misery praying for death. I’m sick of being lectured on the law of attraction. I practiced it&practiced it correctly. I lived it and it has yet to be effective not even in the slightest. I’ve tried to be a good person my whole life. I’ve always given more than I take and I always try to help out people. I don’t understand why this is happening to me or how to fix it. And about 2 years ago through a series of Random events, I was contacted by the pleiadians. And it’s been ongoing ever since but I cannot truly understand what they’re wanting for me or how I can help. I know they got angry with me at the beginning because I kept asking questions about myself. They literally said “it won’t work, she only wants to know about herself”.I have deciphered(from them) that I have significant purpose I was supposed to fulfill. They said something about being the only Oracle left on Earth(they said the other 7 were on Venus)which doesn’t make sense to me because the internet shows thousands and thousands of “oracles”. Case in point aren’t you considered an oracle?
    I realize I kind of rambled and apologize if it’s hard to follow. I’m genuinely grateful for any help you can and thank you for doing this for people. I’d imagine it’s extremely helpful for many people.

  15. Thanks for allowing questions. My question is about twin flames. I believe absolutely that I am in a relationship with my twin flame, and have seen the universe confirm this over and over. My twin was diagnosed as bipolar around the age of 11. He had a spiritual awakening after we met and has believed since then that he is not bipolar. I would like to ask if strong emotions can reflect in a twin before you have even met them. This explanation of events is something that popped into my head almost on it’s own (the universe?). Have you ever heard of this happening? Could he have been experiencing my traumatic childhood, and I his through our twin connection, long before we met. Thanks for your consideration.
