Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?


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.

Finding Your Way Around the Blog

Home Page

The left-hand column on the Home page contain a long chronological series of posts with the most recent on top. Each post begins with a title. Clicking on a post title will take you to a blog page dedicated to that particular post. Following each post is a Like button where you can indicate to us and other readers if you like the post.

The footer section of each post identifies the date the post was published, the Categories the post has been assigned to, the keyword/keyphrase Tags assigned to the post, and a Comment link. If readers comments on a post, the Comments link will indicate the number of comments. If a post has no comments yet, the Comment link text appears as “Leave a Comment”.

Clicking on the Comments link takes you to a Comment text box on a post page dedicated to that post. Here you can type a comment in the text box and click the Post Comment button to have your comment displayed just below the text box. If you are replying to someone else’s comment, your comment will appear indented underneath the comment you are replying to.

At the bottom of the left column on the Home page is a ‘Previous Entries’ link that will take you to a page with a list of earlier posts.

Blog Features

The right-hand column of most blog pages contains this Welcome message. Below the Welcome message in the right-hand column are some useful features:

Email Subscription: Use this to subscribe to blog posts. You will receive an email notification with a link back to the blog each time a new post is published.

Search: Type a keyword or phrase and click the Search button to get a list of posts in the left column that contain the keyword or phrase.

Contact Us: The Contact Us page contains a contact form similar to the Comment form mentioned above. The difference between the Contact Us form and the Comment forms is that the Contact Us form is a private message to us (Cynthia and Bob). It is not posted on the blog.

The Contact Us form can be used for communicating with us about private sessions or other private matters you think aren’t appropriate for posting in a public Comment.

  1. Greetings Cynthia, Bob and the Council,

    I am writing because three and a half months ago I entered into a relationship with someone that I am falling in love with. He represents a lot of what I have prayed for. He treats me well, is incredibly loving, and is helping me to see myself in new ways. I feel like this is a deep soul connection, and to be honest, a part of me is terrified.

    I’m used to being independent, and have created a life for myself that feels stable and his presence in my life is throwing me off kilter. What if I lose myself? I have purpose related life goals that I fear will get derailed. Also, he and I have a number of differences – he’s very Christian while I define myself as incredible spiritual but not Christian, we both come from different cultures, and his values are more conservative than mine. But I love him.

    My questions are, how can I overcome my fears of getting lost in this person/relationship? How am I meant to grow from this? Is it possible to create a life/family with this man without losing sight of what I want to accomplish professionally/purposefully? Why is it that I fell for someone so different from me?

    Thank you for your insight into this!

    • Hi, Frances. Very interesting questions. We’ll be happy to ask The Council when we have time and we’ll publish a post with an audio recording of their response as soon as it’s reade. In the meantime, enjoy the love. Love and light, Bob & Cynthia

  2. Hi Bob and Cynthia. I would like to ask the council why I have such a negative relationship with my stepmother. It seems like she is always filled with anger and negative energy towards everyone and I always feel fear when I am around her. I think she herself needs some sort of healing.

    Did I know her from a past life? What lessons are we meant to learn from each other? How can I change our relationship into a better one? Did I do something bad to her in her past life to deserve this? Even though I try to get away from these negative feelings I am unable to. Please help shed some light. Thankyou.

  3. Hi Bob and cynthia thankyou so much for doing this. The question I am about to ask is a little awkward and embarrassing but i really need to know about this situation. I think due to malnutrition my body did not develop right during puberty and by that I mean womanly assests like breasts. I have tried a lot of things to make them grow but nothing seems to work and it really takes a toll on my self esteem and confidence. I am trying some home remedies but to no avail
    Can you suggest why this happened and how I can cure this? Greatly appreciated. Thankyou.

  4. Hello Bob, Cynthia and the council,

    I have a question about my feelings of home. A lot of times I feel like I want to go back home even when I am home. I think I am missing something and I feel I don’t belong where I am a lot of times.

    Although it may seem an awkward question, but the feeling that I have is not going away and I think it’s getting stronger. Even when things are going great, I have a strong feeling of going back home with my Mom. I used to think it’s about my physical home, but I was surprised to have the same feeling even when I have visited and stayed at home for couple of months.

    Can the council please guide me regarding this feeling of going home and belongingness? Does it have a connection to the Pleiades and my life over there? If yes, can I do anything to contact my family over there?

    It would be great to know my purpose in life. I think if I do what I am meant to do be doing this feeling will reduce in its intensity.

    Thanks so much.

  5. Hello to the Council and Bob and Cynthia, I have a question- why am I so sensitive to the sun? It seems like it’s getting worse rather than better and I truly dread the summer now. I want to enjoy this physical reality and pass on a love of nature to my kids. Why did I create this sensitivity in my skin and can I do anything to mitigate it?
