What Can I Do To Find A Partner To Love and Who Loves Me?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, ACuriousSpirit, who asks: What can I do to find a partner to love, who loves me, and to have a happy and long-lasting relationship?

Council: Become like a child and pretend. The more pretending you can do, the better it is to create what you want.

Be specific in your thoughts. What kind of person would you like in your life? Think of this often. Do you need someone handsome? Do you need someone with a lot of money? Do you need someone that’s beautiful and caring? Do you want a tall person? A short person? Do you want someone with a good sense of humor?

When you do this, the mistake most people make is thinking of all this, but thinking of it from a place of frustration that this is what they want, but they don’t have it. The minute you go into, “I don’t have it yet, but this is what I want,” that but this is what I want and I don’t have it yet, slows down the process of what you’re trying to create.

We advise you to create from the beginning of your relationship. You meet this person. Can you imagine your phone is now ringing and you’re getting a call from this person? This person is asking you out. Are you laughing on the phone? What does your first date look like? What are you wearing? How does the relationship develop? Do you go on trips together? When you marry, how does that happen? Who asks who to get married?

Bring the relationship along in every detail you can imagine. Do you buy a house? What does that house look like? Go in every room and design it, feel it, and pretend like a little child that you have it. And in that pretending and make-believe you know you’re just starting to create what you desire.

The more you can get yourself happy, and laugh when you think: Let me go into this visualization, let me fix this, I saw this last time, but I’ll change it and make it better. And continuously do this and know what you desire is there for you. The more you do this, the quicker you’ll create it. But you have to do this from a place of happiness, and a place that it’s something that’s yours, that it’s available to you. Get away from the thought of, it’s taking too long, and will I ever be able to do this?

You must create what you desire out of faith, and know that you’re the creator. And along with that, you can create anything else you want. But you have to come from a place where you see what you desire, and you feel it. Feeling what you desire is the key. Visualizing what you desire sends those thoughts out into the universe. What brings it back to you and is the magnet is feeling what you desire.

Like a little child creates, they are a spaceman and they’ll see the whole thing in their head. And they’ll be excited because they’re going to the moon, or they’re going to Mars. You must feel the excitement that this is true. You’re in charge and you’re the creator. The more you can do this from a place of happiness and a place of belief, you will create what you desire. There’s nothing you cannot create. It’s all there for you.

Are Some Events Pre-Planned In Spirit More Likely To Happen Than Others?

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

Mari: I’ve read in some books on the afterlife and reincarnation that certain important events in life are pre-planned, with a high probability of happening. For example, marrying a particular person, going to a particular school, having a child, or having certain disabilities. And no matter which way you go, that event will most likely occur. Other events are supposedly pre-planned only as possibilities.

Council: Your higher self always knows what you pre-plan and what you want to experience. There are many times when you’re setting up a new life that you pick souls you worked with and learned with before. You’d choose one as a husband, a wife, a brother, or a mother. There are times you want them in your life for a while, and you’ll set that up, learn what’s needed, and then move on.

There are times when you may make an agreement with a soul where you say, Let’s see how our life goes. Let’s see what I create and what you create, and is it a meeting where we’ll become friends and experience more, or is it just a quick meeting and you move on? By doing it this way you don’t know what you’re going to create, and so you have the ability to go into this relationship with this spirit, or turn and go on another path. There are some relationships where it’s very positive, we know each other before, and let’s do it again. What is it that you want to learn? What is it that I want to learn? We’ll support each other in this. And there are other relationships where you just see how it goes.

The freedom is always yours. Even if you decide to recreate something you set up, your higher self knows if you’re learning what you want to learn, if you’re having a good time, and if you’re achieving what you wanted to achieve. You’ll always be able to pick the direction you go in, even if you don’t consciously know that the choice was yours to do this or to do that and to have this experience.

Bob: So it sounds like you’re agreeing with Mari when she says you can pre-plan an event that has a high probability of happening.

Council: Yes

Bob: And you’re saying even though it does have a high probability of happening, you have the free will to change that.

Council: You always have free will. Every day of your life you can connect with the other spirit, with their higher self and your higher self, and you’ll know this is the way we want it to go. Or let’s not go this way. Let’s change this and change that. You’re always in connection with these other spirits.

Bob: And it sounds like you’re also saying that you can pre-plan possibilities that aren’t necessarily likely or unlikely to happen, and you determine at the time you’re living what you pre-planned in that life whether you want to follow that path or not.

Council: Exactly. The choice is always yours.

Mari: You’ve indicated in many places that you have to believe in something for it to occur.

Bob: Can you comment on that?

Council: You can’t believe in something you don’t remember that you’re creating in spirit. You don’t have to believe it because your higher self and the other person’s higher self will work to make this happen. But if it’s something you want in your life, like a  new job or a new partner, it always helps to believe you want it and it’s coming to you. There are many things you won’t remember that you have planned, but your higher self will take you there. When it’s something you consciously want, it always works much better if you believe you can have it.

Bob: You’re also saying that even if you don’t consciously believe in something, it can still occur.

Council: Yes, it can. Believe in the power of your higher self because it’s you. You’re the only one who’s creating in your reality.

When I Die, How Long Can I Stay In Heaven?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Adrian, who wants to know about reincarnation. He says: When I die, I heard you can choose to stay in heaven for a while or return to Earth right away. How long can you stay in heaven before you reincarnate, if you choose to stay?

Council: You can stay in heaven as long as you like. No one will force you to come back to Earth. No one will keep you in heaven if you want to come back to Earth. It’s entirely up to you. When you go into the spirit world you’re still in control. You make the decisions and create your life the way you want it to be. You can stay in heaven as long as you want.

Adrian: In my human form I’m a 25-year-old male and I’m very happy as I am. I don’t want to be forced to reincarnate as some random, grumpy, cruel grandmother without charisma or humor. I don’t want to offend anyone. You can appreciate a lot of people, but I’m not sure I want to be them or walk in their shoes.

Council: When you decide to come back to Earth, you’ll decide what you want to be, what you want to look like, the family you’ll be born into, and the lessons you want to learn. If there’s something you want to experience by being grumpy to learn how that person feels, then you’ll create a life where you’re grumpy. But you’ll never go through something you haven’t created. You can come back as anything you like.

Adrian: Is it possible to be reincarnated as a person who I’m more in touch with? Something I personally prefer in my human form, if that makes sense.

Council: What you desire to reincarnate as now, you may not desire that when you’re back in the spirit world. There could be something completely different that you’d like to experience.

Adrian: I don’t even know what I’d wish to be reincarnated as. I just know I like my grandmother, but I don’t want to be her.

Council: (Laughs) You won’t be your grandmother. You may be a grandmother, but you won’t be your grandmother.

Adrian: I only recently became aware of the spiritual world. Does The Council work in a way similar to a genie in a lamp, where you rub the lamp and the spirit comes out and you get three wishes? If that’s the way it works, can I have three wishes?

Council: (Laughs) I know that we’ve never jumped out of a lamp. I don’t think it works that way. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could just say, “I’d like these three things, Spirit Guides, so please give that to me.” And poof, we could do that, but things don’t work that way. You will receive everything you desire and everything you want to create.

We’re just here to congratulate you when you finish a lifetime, and go over your lifetime with you, and plan something new. But we can never give you wishes. We can’t grant anything for you. We can support you, raise your energy, and help you get to that state where you understand that you are the creator of everything.

Bob: Can you elaborate a little bit on what you mean when you say, “You’ll get everything you desire?”

Council: You’ll set up what you want to learn in your current lifetime. If your life goes one way you’re going to learn one thing, if it goes another way you’re going to learn something else. You’re still creating day by day and minute by minute. What you think of, what you focus on, you will create.

Bob: How would you respond to people who feel they’re focusing on something and they’re having difficulty creating it?

Council: It’s because the person has a belief somewhere that they can’t have what they want. Or they may want to experience a life where it’s a hardship for them and they can’t create what they want. Or they may want to go through a period where they learn how to create by focusing. There are many different ways you can create. What you want to learn in that particular lifetime will be what you set up and go through.

We wish you all love, and light, and happiness, and gratitude on your path, and to be supportive of one another, and to love yourself as well as other people in your life. Remember every single day, you are all spirits in a physical body. You’ll create whatever it is that you focus on. Even if you focus on something negative, you’ll create that.

We urge you to have positive thoughts, to laugh as much as you can, to have fun, to remember the wonderful and happy memories, and stay in the positive.

Will I Find A Partner To Love And Who Loves Me?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, In This Lifetime, who read our post, Can Your Desire for Something Create It in Your Life? She says: I learned from this post there could be different experiences going on for myself that I came to this world to have. And she asks: What experiences is it that I’m here to have and learn from?

Council: You very much wanted to be independent. You wanted to be a creative person. You wanted to learn about your spiritual path. You wanted a family with the right person that would be there for you. But most of all you wanted to learn to be independent. You wanted to feel confident in your intelligence, how you tuned into different people, and how you treated people. Then you wanted to recognize how people treated you. It was these characteristics you wanted to learn about in yourself and in other people.

Lifetime: A counselor who can hear spirit led me to believe I came into this world to break free from a controlling and narcissistic husband who I shared many lifetimes where I was unable to break free successfully.

Council: You created these lives and that would be a big part of learning to be independent. If you feel you created this person and wanted to break free, there’s your challenge of independence.

Lifetime: I ended the marriage six years ago, have taken many years to let go, reconsider my beliefs, and relocate across the country.

Council: There you are. You’re on the right path.

Lifetime: Yet am I able to experience a committed partner in this lifetime who I can love as fully as I know I’m capable, and who can and will love me deeply?

Council: You’ve pre-planned this meeting also. Keep focusing on independence, keep focusing on feeling good about yourself, and know that everything you want, you will create.

Lifetime: I carry the herpes virus and although it hasn’t been active for a long time, I feel this is shameful and limits my opportunities for love.

Council: We suggest you let go of this shame and know you also created this.  Even though you’ve had herpes, this touches on your challenge of making you focus on the fact that no matter what’s in your life, you deserve love and you’re a wonderful person. Always make sure you’re kind. You wanted to bring out compassion and kindness in this lifetime.

Lifetime: Many people say my ex-husband didn’t treat me well and I’m worthy of being treated so much better. I haven’t found love with a partner, but I’ve reconnected with things about myself that I lost in my marriage. Will I find happiness in this lifetime?

Council: If you believe you deserve a partner who loves you, you can create this. There’s no question that you can have a good partner and happiness in your life, but you must believe you deserve this.

Lifetime: Or is this a lifetime of independence and finding love in myself, but not the pleasures of a shared life with a partner, as I had hoped would eventually happen after leaving my abusive marriage?

Council: You’ll find this person when you believe you deserve this relationship, when you love yourself, and are proud of yourself and what you’ve accomplished. Then you’ll bring in the right person for you.

Lifetime: Please let me know what my intention was for my current lifetime.

Council: Your intentions were independence, feeling good about yourself, creating what you want, and learning more on your spiritual path.

If you don’t meditate now, learn how to meditate. Stay with good thoughts. You wanted to be kind to others as well as yourself. When you do all these things you’ll be on the right path for you, for what you wanted to experience in this lifetime. Work on loving yourself first and you’ll attract the partner you’re looking for.

What’s The Best Way To Ask For Something You Want To Manifest?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Jess, who says: I recently saw a video about manifesting your desires and I was wondering something. In this video a person said the more detailed and specific you are with your desired outcome is a slippery slope, especially during challenging times.

For example, instead of saying you want wealth and abundance, you say you want a specific amount of money by a certain date. They say it’s okay to be detailed and specific with your outcome, but your specificity is limiting the universe. Another example is, you say you want a specific person for a romantic partner. By doing that you’re limiting the universe to one specific person, even if you love this person, their knowledge, and insight.

I was thinking about this because I also read a book called, It Works, by R. H. Jarrett. In it the author talks about being very detailed in your desired outcome, including when you want it to happen. I love this book and most of the information in it, but these are two conflicting ideas about manifesting. I was wondering what The Council can tell me about manifesting. Is it better to be more detailed? Or is it better to just say you want wealth and abundance instead of saying you want a million dollars? Are you limiting the universe by being more specific and detailed in the desired outcome?

Council: We say here that it’s all according to your belief. There are many people that have a strong belief that every detail they can want, they can manifest. And that will work for them. Other people would say you’re limiting the universe by asking for something very specific.

The universe knows what you want, and it will send you the visualizations you put out into the world. You can say to the universe, I want a partner in my life and I want you to send the most perfect person for me. And that will work for that person because that’s what they believe.

Either way works. You have to choose what’s more comfortable for you. When you think about what you want, what gets you more excited? What makes you happy to think about it? Is this person tall? Are they blonde? Are they skinny? Are they a millionaire? Or you can think, go ahead universe, you know what I want. Send me the most perfect person. Both ways work. It’s all according to what you believe and what makes you feel good.

There was one person who put out to the universe that they wanted a partner, and got the most wonderful partner that they could have created with their own mind. There was another person that went detail by detail with their outcome. In two weeks this woman wanted to meet the most perfect man in her life. He had to look a certain way. He had to have certain characteristics. Everything was wonderful, but because she went detail by detail, she forgot to specify anything about this partner having a job. She attracted a partner who was perfect, except he didn’t have a job, and this caused the relationship to fall apart. If you’re afraid you’ll forget something, just ask for the most perfect person for you.

You can’t limit the universe. The universe knows what you want and it will go by how you feel. Just know that what you are asking for is coming to you and be happy with that.

Can I Create The Outcome Of My Corrected PhD Thesis?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Anna, who says: I’m a PhD student at the end of my studies. I passed a grueling exam, which included one examiner shouting at me for nearly two hours, and I’d be handed my degree subject to completing some corrections. I love the subject I wrote about, labored over my corrections, and submitted them at the end of last year, but have heard nothing since.

The Council asks Anna: Why is there doubt that what you did is not good enough? As we tell everyone, you are the creator. You will create according to what you believe. If you believe these people won’t accept your corrections and won’t pass you, you’ll create that. How about turning the focus around and keep thinking, I did a wonderful job. I really came up with wonderful corrections. I’m so proud of it and happy with it. I will pass this. This is wonderful.

Anna says: I have this feeling in the pit of my stomach and had a dream that my PhD examiners will not pass my thesis corrections. The Council says: It’s all your fear and doubt that creates this.

Anna says: Once I realized I felt this way I began using affirmations, visualizations, and prayers that my thesis would be approved. The Council says: But your belief hasn’t changed. You are praying, almost begging for them to pass your corrections, by some miracle. Take your power. Visualize it. Feel it. You’re happy. You’ve completed your thesis. Now imagine it’s been accepted.

Everything that everyone experiences is created by them. Your fear and doubt are created by you. It’s your job right now to believe in yourself and reach a place of confidence. No matter how long it takes you to create that, you have to wait and believe your PhD thesis will be accepted. These evaluators that you’ve created are just a challenge. It’s so you can learn who you are and how powerful you are.

You ask if it’s true you can create anything? You want proof. And we tell you to do the work. If you see it, if you feel it and don’t beg for it from a place of doubt, but be confident your thesis is perfect and wonderful, you’ll be happy with it and you’ll create it.

Anna says: Sometimes I’m able to feel better about receiving my PhD and believe it, and sometimes I don’t. The Council says: When you don’t believe it, acknowledge your disbelief, realize you’re in your doubt again, and change your thought immediately. Have the discipline to get into a confident mode. Know you are a powerful spirit running around in this world because you want to see who you really are. You want to discover how powerful you are and that you are the creator. That’s why you’ve created this situation.

Anna says: I also used tarot card readings to see what the outcome would be and I received the same message, that my corrections wouldn’t pass. The Council says the reason for this is it’s what you believe at this time.

Anna says: I’m wondering if I can really change this outcome? The Council says: Without a doubt, you can. Anna says: Can I really change two people’s free will and their decision about my work? The Council says: Yes, because when you create, you’ll create it in a way that fits into your world and these people will change. You don’t have to know how or why they’ll change, but you can create that they will change.

Anna says: It feels to me that to create this change would be a miracle. The Council says: Yes, it is. It’s a wonderful miracle. And in the evaluators’ world they’ll create it where, perhaps they don’t pass you. But their world is completely different from your world. The people in your world will respond to you according to what you believe. The power here comes from your choice to believe, no matter how frightened you get. And when you get frightened, grab that thought, acknowledge it, and change it. Then you’ll create the miracle you’re looking for.

Anna says: But if I can create this miracle, am I going about it in the right way, or is there something else I can do? The Council says: We’re telling you to refocus. Don’t stay in the energy of fear or doubt, but be very aware of it, acknowledge it, and then change it. Focus your thoughts. Feel as if it already happened the way you want it to. The feeling is your magnet that will bring that response and create it in your life.

Anna asks: Did I attract this examiner’s behavior in my exam? The Council says: Of course. Part of the lessons you wanted to learn in this particular lifetime was being brave, being courageous, being independent, and being proud of yourself, which is a big lesson for you. All of this situation with your PhD certification has been created to give you the opportunity to change your thoughts, to experience life the way you want it, and to feel really good about yourself.

Anna asks: Am I attracting the delay in hearing my PhD results from them. The Council says: Again we say, of course, because you believe it. It’s on its way to you, you doubt it, and then everything stops and you’re delaying it. Stay with positive thoughts. The more you can do this, the more quickly your desires will come to you.

Anna asks: How does my dream and the tarot reading work in this situation? The Council says: It’s all showing you what you believe. What happens to you in any situation in your life is showing you what your belief is. That’s all it is. If you don’t like your dream or the tarot reading, start changing your thoughts and you’ll see the change you want in your life.

Anna asks: Are the dream and the tarot card reading just projections of how I’m feeling. The Council says: Of course. Anna continues: Or are they telling me what is now a set-in-stone outcome? The Council says: It’s not set in stone, but it’s telling you what you’re creating. With this knowledge you have the chance to change the outcome.

The Council says: We send you all blessings, love, happiness, peace, and the courage to look at who you really are, to want to know who you really are, and to experience who you really are. The way you do this is through the thoughts in your mind. Everything in your life is coming through your thoughts.

Asking The Universe For A Sign About Yes Or No Questions

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Virgo Rising, who wants to know about asking the universe Yes or No questions. They say, 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 rare in the area where I live) within a specific time frame, the answer to my question is, No.

The Council asks, Do you know that you’re the one who created this pink car so you can see it, because your higher self already has all the answers. Because you want some sort of proof, the universe will conspire to help you out in whatever way you need it to. When you’re thinking of putting a pink car in front of you to give you an answer, the universe replies: Of course we’ll make this happen. You’re creating this pink car. This is what you want, and this will give you your answer.

Virgo Rising says, My question is one that is set in stone because I was asking about something that already happened that I didn’t know the truth about. I won’t put the question I asked here, but it was similar to: Did so-and-so lie to me about this thing they said?

No more than a few minutes later as I’m driving on the highway, a hot pink car merges onto the road and pops 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 merges onto the highway and plops itself right in front of me. The Council says, Look how wonderfully your higher self is helping you work out the answer to your question. You needed this answer, which you intuitively knew, but doubted. And so, once again the universe says: We’ll help you. This is what you need. This is what you are creating.

Virgo Rising says, I’ve done this a few more times with other Yes or No questions and I’ve 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 is all just a coincidence. The Council says there are no coincidences. What you’re getting are true answers, but we see here you don’t accept it. You don’t accept what you yourself have created. And so you need more and more signs, and there are more and more questions.

The Council asks: How about releasing the doubt at this point? How about going with whatever signs you get, believing it, and then letting your question go? You can ask the same question ten different ways. You may want to see a purple car. You may want to see a tree laying on the ground. And you’ll get the same answer because you (your higher self) know the answer. When you create these questions and answers in a way that comes to you, we see here you still doubt. There are still questions. Learn to trust.

The Council sends everyone blessings, love, happiness, and peace. They wish us the courage to look at who you really are, the desire to know who you really are, and to experience who you really are. The way you do this is through the thoughts in your mind. Everything in your life is coming to you from your thoughts.

Getting Pregnant At 40 After A Stillbirth

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Janette, who says, You answered a question from me years ago regarding my daughter’s stillbirth and I’m writing again with questions that have recently been eating away at my thoughts.

Last year, leading up to my turning 40 years old, I was overcome with the desire to have a baby. Our daughter was stillborn in 2014. Our son, who’s now 6 years old, was born in 2015. Ever since our son was a toddler the name, Haven, started appearing to me everywhere. I came across this name so regularly that it was overwhelming and I knew I couldn’t deny the universe was trying to tell me something.

Between turning 40 and the occurrence of this name I was convinced was speaking to me, we tried to get pregnant and I immediately did. Being that Haven means “a safe place,” I convinced myself that it was either our stillborn daughter reminding us she’s in a safe place in heaven, or it could be another spirit baby trying to communicate that they want to come to us.

The Council says: No, it was you who set up the situation with the name, Haven. It’s your higher self trying to communicate with you to believe it’s safe to go through a pregnancy again and give birth. Your higher self created a word that means something to the human part of you. It was very clever of you to create a word that means “safe”.

Janette says, I absolutely know this means something. The Council says it means you’re supposed to believe. Believe in safety. Believe this is a whole new opportunity. Believe this pregnancy is something you wanted. And believe you created this. You’re giving yourself another chance to expand your family. It’s all you creating this.

Janette says, So this little boy I’m pregnant with will be named, Haven. What’s even more miraculous than me getting pregnant so fast at 40 is that this baby’s due date is March 25, which was the same as my stillborn daughter’s. The Council asks: Can you see how wonderfully you’re creating your current pregnancy? It’s like you’re having a do-over. You’re having a new birth that you’ll create in whatever way you want, and we see here you’re creating it wonderfully and safely so that you’ll have this child.

Janette says, I lost my stillborn baby when I was 33½ weeks pregnant on February 7, 2014. When that day approaches this upcoming week I’ll be exactly 33½ weeks pregnant with Haven. The Council asks: What will you do leading up to that? What will you do when that day comes? It’s important not to be afraid something can happen. Don’t focus on the loss that can happen. It’s wise to think: Here’s this date again and it’s a wonderful day. I have a chance to be happy and create what I want.

Janette asks: What does this all mean? It can’t be a coincidence. I’d love The Council’s thoughts on this. The Council says it’s not a coincidence. You’ve planned this beautifully.

Janette says: Because of the loss of my stillborn daughter, with my 6-year-old son and now the little boy I’m pregnant with they’ve done fetal monitoring on me. I go in twice a week to have the baby’s heartbeat checked thoroughly, which is reassuring. But this is very triggering for me. I sit there and ask myself: What if they did fetal monitoring with my stillborn daughter? Would she be here today? The Council says they weren’t supposed to do it because you were supposed to have that loss so you can see how you can recreate your life. It wasn’t planned for your daughter to survive that pregnancy.

Janette says: They would have noticed my daughter didn’t move a lot if I just would have been monitored. The Council asks if Janette sees how she’s created all of this back then so that, at this point in your life you’re going through this all over again but in a better place? You have a chance to create what you want. That monitoring wasn’t supposed to happen. It would have changed your plan. As the creator, you could have had the monitoring and created your situation differently, but it happened the way it did to show you that you are the creator, and you wanted this stillbirth in your life. You’ve given yourself another chance now. It’s a wonderful thing you’ve done. That monitoring wasn’t supposed to happen, and it wasn’t supposed to change what you went through.

Janette says: It haunts me almost eight years later, that I could have done something to change the outcome. The Council says instead of beating yourself up or blaming yourself for not changing the outcome, you created it and went through it exactly the way you wanted it to happen to get you to the current point in your life.

Janette says: How didn’t I know my baby wasn’t moving? The Council says you didn’t know and it was fine, and she is fine. As a spirit your daughter agreed to go through the stillbirth with you. You’re all exactly on the right track.

Janette says: I was 33½ weeks along with her pregnancy, and if they could have caught something with extra monitoring, I feel like she could be here today. At 33½ weeks she could have survived, even if they had to have me deliver her at that point. I just make myself sick thinking about the what-ifs. The Council says you’re at a point in your life where, instead of beating yourself up and asking what if this and what if that, you should be in a place of gratitude and so happy you have the chance to have this new baby, bring it full term, and have your child. This is where your focus belongs.

Beating yourself up will do no good. It won’t make you happy. It won’t give you relief. It won’t make you wonder: Suppose this and suppose that. You’re supposed to let go of this stillbirth. You’re supposed to know: Yes, I went through this, but how wonderful it is that I have a chance now to do this differently. That’s what I need to think about every day. How wonderful, I’ve given myself a gift.

Janette says: I’m still struggling to reach peace and I’d love to hear from all of you. The Council advises you to be proud of yourself and what you’ve created, and recreated, and how wonderfully this is working out for you. Stay in the vibration of joy.

What’s Blocking Me From Attracting A Romantic Partner Into My Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eden, who asks, What is blocking me from attracting a romantic partner into my life? I’ve been single for years now and I’ve done a lot of work on myself during this time in order to welcome in a partner to enhance my life. However, I’m still not attracting in the right person. I feel as though I might have an unconscious block or a limiting belief, which is stopping me from attracting the right person. Could you please shed some light on this?

The Council says in one particular lifetime in the early 1800s you were a wife in a very lovely marriage with children. But your husband died unexpectedly and left you broken-hearted for this whole lifetime. You became a totally different person, sad and obsessed. You always wished your partner was still there.

In your current lifetime, subconsciously the fear is there that if you find the perfect partner, the relationship would end prematurely in your partner transitioning to spirit. That’s the belief that comes into your current lifetime. That’s the belief you wanted to work on and heal.

We ask you to not only visualize what you’ve lost now that you have this information, but think about how wonderful your relationship was. Meditate on this and ask for information about your marriage. How do you think your life would have been with a husband and children? Bring that relationship into your current lifetime. It was beautiful and it ended early, but that was then. Now you can have another beautiful relationship and it will last your entire lifetime.

There’s the belief of worry, and fear of being abandoned again that’s stopping you from pulling in someone who you want to have a relationship with.

We can tell you that in spirit you planned to have a relationship in your current lifetime with the spirit of the husband you lost in the lifetime we mentioned. It’s there for you. We suggest you concentrate on the joy that you’ll have the opportunity to be together again, and have another lifetime together, and create as you both go along.

Stop worrying about not finding the perfect person, what is wrong, and what’s blocking you. You now have the answer to those questions. But you also know now that in spirit you and your husband from a past lifetime have both agreed you’ll come together to have another great relationship, to live out another wonderful life. We wish you well on this. Meditate on it and feel the happiness and excitement that you’ll meet this person again.

Eden closes by asking, Is there a partner out there for me with whom I can create a beautiful and fulfilling relationship, which is really what my heart yearns for? The Council says this relationship is there for you. Now create it.

Comparing the Ideas of Abraham-Hicks and Brian Weiss

Feeling conflicted about the message of Brian Weiss’s masters compared to the message of Abraham-Hicks

This post answers some very interesting questions from a reader named, Caroline, who’s been a long-time listener and lover of Abraham-Hicks. Caroline says, There’s really never been a message from Abraham I haven’t greatly resonated with. Recently I’ve become fascinated with the topic of reincarnation and read the book, Many Lives, Many Masters, by Brian Weiss. I feel very conflicted and confused after reading this because the messages of these masters seem to conflict with Abraham’s message in many ways. From Abraham I learned reincarnation exists, but its purpose isn’t to fix your past life mistakes or karma. Abraham says karma doesn’t accumulate and isn’t passed on from lifetime to lifetime.

We come into this reality to experience different beliefs

The Council says, first let’s begin with the two souls who are giving these messages. There’s Brian Weiss, who came into this reality to share this message about karma. This message is perceived as totally different from Abraham’s message. This is because we all come to this reality to learn different things and experience different beliefs. Brian Weiss chose to learn what he did about past lives and to share it. He shares this information for people who need to believe what he’s teaching. Abraham has come through Esther Hicks to share what you’d call a different message for other people who need to learn the way Esther is teaching, and function within those beliefs.

There’s no right and no wrong

It’s not that one of these people is right and the other is wrong. With your beliefs (what you choose to believe) you create in your reality. The people who hear about karma and how you bring it from one life to another, they need this teaching and they’ll experience lessons and learning through this teaching.  Abraham says there is no karma and we’re here to have a wonderful time and create. Other souls who are on another level need to learn from that message. There’s no right and no wrong.

Choose the belief that makes sense to you

Learn about these two beliefs and then choose what makes the most sense to you. That’s how this reality is made. It’s made that we come here and have choices for every little thing we do. We have the choice what to believe. We have the choice what path we’ll follow. Many people can be raised one way and they have certain beliefs. As they get older they no longer vibrate with their earlier beliefs and so they change their beliefs. That’s the law of this universe. If Caroline disagrees with Brian Weiss’s message, she can play in her mind with the idea that there are other people who need that belief and she can allow these people to have these beliefs.

Caroline’s Beliefs

Caroline says she learned that the sole purpose of coming to Earth as a human is to have fun creating and sorting through desires and contrast. The Council says this is a wonderful belief for many people.

Freedom of choice is there for you

Caroline says she learned nothing is ever imposed on us, nothing is happening to us, everything is attracted to us through our thoughts and vibration. The Council says everything that happens to us and everything we experience is from our thoughts, our beliefs, and what we planned to experience in this life. No one else comes in and creates for you or tells you, this must be done this way and this must be done that way. The freedom of choice is there for you.

Caroline says, I learned from Abraham we can be, do, or have anything we desire. The Council responds, Of course. And if we want to go without and experience poverty, you have the freedom to do that.

It’s wonderful to be in alignment with your higher self

Caroline says, I learned from Abraham the best and only way you can help someone is to be in alignment with your inner being. I learned you can let yourself off the hook regarding thinking that you need to be helping people because everyone has their own inner guidance system and the best and only way you can help is to be in alignment with your own source. The Council says it’s wonderful to be in alignment with your own source, with your higher self. It’s also wonderful to have positive intentions.

We’re here to help others

You’re not here for the sole purpose of helping yourself. We come here from spirit, which is full of love. We come here bringing that love here and wanting to spread that love in this reality. You can’t do that by only taking care of yourself. You take care of yourself, but you look for others to help, to show compassion, to help them if they’re stuck on some part of their path. We don’t say this is something you have to do, but we’re here to spread the love. We are here to help others, not by forgetting ourselves, but by being in alignment and loving ourselves and sharing that love, compassion, and helpfulness with others.

Being selfish is NOT necessary

Caroline says, I learned from Abraham that being selfish is necessary. The Council emphatically states that being selfish is not necessary. Being selfish isn’t something you think of when you’re in spirit. You didn’t think you’ll come to Earth and only create for yourself. You didn’t think you will come to Earth and be selfish and you will come first and then everyone else will come. This isn’t how we share love.

Quotes from Brian Weiss’s Masters

Caroline says, Here are some quotes from the masters in Brian Weiss’s book. In my opinion, every one of these quotes conflicts with one or all of the statements I made above.

It’s just another path

“People of the religious orders have come closer than any of us to learning the lessons of life because they’ve taken these vows of chastity and obedience. They’ve given up so much without asking for anything in return.” The Council says this is something that people who follow certain religions need to believe. They aren’t closer to being enlightened. They aren’t higher on the rung of learning and moving forward because they’ve given up so much. It’s just another path and that’s the path they’re taking.

It’s not your higher intention to help someone so you can have a reward

Caroline says, “The rest of us continue to ask for rewards, rewards and justifications for our behavior when there are no rewards, rewards that we want. The reward is in doing, but doing without expecting anything, doing unselfishly.” The Council says it’s wonderful to ask for rewards. We believe Abraham called it putting your desires in your vortex. You have every right to want to enhance your life and have rewards. But it’s not your higher self’s intention to help someone so you can have a reward. Your reward will come naturally. The universe will help your reward happen. You’ll help others and you’ll be rewarded. That’s how the universe works. As you’re helpful to others the universe will say, How wonderful. We’ll now help this soul. We’ll show this soul what it feels like to be helped so they’ll continue to help others. We’ll give this person rewards. Whatever they’re thinking they’d like, whatever they’re imagining they can have, the universe will supply that for you.

Caroline says I feel like Abraham would say what I just quoted from Brian Weiss’s masters is such old news. The Council laughs and says it’s just another page in the newspaper.

You don’t come here carrying karma from other lifetimes unless there’s something you desire to experience

Brian Weiss’s masters say you should check your vices before you come to this point. If you don’t, you carry them over with you to another life. Only we can rid ourselves of the bad habits we accumulate when we’re in a physical state. The masters can’t do that for us. If you choose to fight and not to rid yourself, then you’ll carry them over to another life. The Council says this is another belief that many people need. It helps them through fear to learn how to be another person so they don’t carry what they believe they’ve done in other lives. It’s just a belief. You don’t come here carrying karma from other lifetimes unless you want to experience something, as we’d say, the other side of the coin.

It’s your choice

But it’s your choice to experience something you handled one way in one life and you wish to handle another way in your current life. It’s not a punishment. It’s something you choose to bring in and see how the other side feels, or how to do it differently. It’s your choice to go through that. It’s your choice to say: I did it this way. Let me see what would happen if, say, I didn’t turn my back on this person. Let’s see what that would look like. In spirit, very calmly, you plan some of the things you wish to experience. It’s all your choice.

It’s wonderful to ask for more

Caroline says the masters say we must accept what comes to us at a given time and not ask for more. Abraham says asking for more and accumulating desires in your vortex and bringing desires into physical reality is the purpose of life as a human. The Council says when you come here it’s to have a lot of fun, even if it’s stressful or challenging. The fun part is working it out, turning the situation around, and finding another way to experience it. As you’re going through your daily life it’s wonderful to ask for more. It’s wonderful to have desires.

Purpose of a child’s death was not to satisfy anyone’s debt

Caroline says, When speaking about the premature death of Brian Weiss’s infant son the masters say: “Your son’s heart was also important for it was backward, like a chicken’s. He made a great sacrifice for you out of his love. His soul is very advanced. His death satisfied his parents’ debts”. The Council emphatically states that this death did not satisfy anyone’s debt. The parents, the child, everyone agreed to that. It was an experience that was wanted. The purpose of Brian Weiss’s son’s death was to see how, through love, they’d get through it. The child isn’t suffering. The child didn’t have this horrible thing happen to him. The parents aren’t being punished for some karma or something they did in another lifetime. It was an experience of the souls loving each other so much that they’d help each other go through this death.

Many people need to believe there’s karma and debts you have to pay

Bob comments he’s not sure the previous quote is accurate, but he asks The Council if they can explain why the masters may have said what they said. The Council says it’s because there are many people that need to believe there’s karma and debts you have to pay. And usually there’s the belief you have to pay these debts by something horrible happening to you. It’s necessary for those people who need to grow by learning this particular way.

Caroline says: Abraham says over and over that nothing is ever imposed on us, especially something from your previous lives. The Council agrees.

You’ll automatically have people come into your life that match your vibration…

Caroline quotes Brian Weiss’s masters again: “We also must learn not to just go to those people whose vibrations are the same as ours. The Council says we normally will just radiate to each other. You won’t have people in your life for a long time that don’t radiate where you are. If some people are growing more slowly, if they have more difficulties, their vibrations can’t reach yours and stay with you for a long time. You’ll automatically have people come into your life that match your vibration, that will help you with something, or that will push your buttons and make you crazy because you asked for this in spirit. The vibration of love is within all of us.

The vibration is just different

Caroline continues with the same quote: “It is normal to feel drawn to somebody who is on the same level that you are, but this is wrong. You must also go to those people whose vibrations are wrong with yours. This is the importance in helping these people.” The Council says it’s not that the vibration of these people is wrong because they don’t agree with you. Their vibration is just different and it’s in your life for you to decide how to deal with it.

Make choices that bring love into your life

Caroline asks, What’s the deal? Do we have to successfully do certain things in our lifetime? The Council says, No. It’s successful if you planned a certain life and you went through the list and did everything you wanted, which never happens because there’s always more and more you want. You’re just here to have fun and experience things. The #1 thing you’re here to do is to make choices that bring love into your life and this reality. When you can experience this love it grows and grows and everyone in your reality, whether you know them or not, feels this love and it will help them on their path.

There’s no unwanted karma that follows you from lifetime to lifetime

Caroline asks if karma is passed down through lifetimes? The Council says there isn’t any karma. If you believe there is, you’ll come up with a story and create something. If you don’t understand why something is happening, you think you must have done something in another life, and so you believe this is passed down. It’s not passed down. There is no karma that says you must pay for something or settle a debt. And yet there are many people who believe in karma because they need to believe it for how they planned to experience their current life. There is no karma that needs to be settled, cleaned out, or cleared before you can go on, or it will follow you from lifetime to lifetime.

It’s not karma if you choose, in spirit, to experience it

Caroline asks if bad things like the death of a child happen because of your karma. The Council says it doesn’t happen because of your karma. It happens because you’ve all chosen in spirit to experience this.

You can be, do, or have anything you desire

Caroline asks if asking for more in life is bad? The Council says never. We’re supposed to be here to ask for more and more and more, and to experience everything we can in this reality. We’re here to create as much as you want. We believe Abraham said you can be anything and have anything, and that’s why you’re here.

Lastly, Caroline asks if people who give up things like sex and choices get closer to source? The Council has a big laugh at this question and says, No, we don’t agree with that.

Caroline says I feel like all the answers to these questions is, no. The Council laughs again and tells Caroline she has all her answers.

Why Can’t I Manifest My Dream Job?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Starfish, who says since childhood they’ve been hard-working in their studies and in their profession, but I think I’m not receiving enough for my skillset and hard work.

The Council says working very hard has come from experiences you had as a child. This has set up a deep belief that you must do everything you can to work hard to make things happen. There’s also the thought that what you have is never enough. You must work harder or have more training in whatever field you decide to go into. You’re always focusing on what you should do, how you should do it, and you believe you must be very well prepared. This gets you asking why things aren’t easier and why your dream job isn’t being manifested. You believe there’s more that has to be done.

Starfish says, I come from a humble background, I’ve struggled a lot, I’ve fought to do well professionally, and I’m giving it my full effort. Is there a reason I’m not able to manifest my dream job or career? The Council says it’s because you have a deep belief you don’t have enough training. You’re always thinking about what else you have to do. You have everything you need to be successful in whatever field you want to go into.

Work on your belief system. Believe you are well-trained. Believe you’re prepared. Believe you can do what you want. Thinking there’s more to do stops the manifesting of what you want. Focus on the belief that you’re ready. There’s nothing else you have to do. Visualization will help, but you’re truly ready. When you truly believe that what you’ve gone through to get to this point is enough, you will manifest your dream job.

Starfish asks The Council if they should be doing something different that will bring them closer to where they want to be professionally and financially. The Council repeats that it’s changing the focus,  the thought, and the belief you’re already there. You’re ready to bring into your life anything you wish.

Starfish asks, Should I continue doing my current job, or does The Council see entrepreneurship for me down the line? The Council says down the line you can go in the direction of entrepreneurship, but right now your focus needs to be more on doing the energy work. Anything you want to manifest you need to visualize. The imagination of having what you desire and how it feels must come first.

Starfish wonders if setting up their own business or further education is required to take them to the next level. The Council says you’re at the level you need to be. Further education is not needed, even though you’re always thinking you don’t have enough or you’re not prepared enough.

Visualize what you desire and change your beliefs to the fact that you are ready. You’ve done everything you need to do and now you can make your dreams happen.

How Can I Help My Insecure Son?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who’s having difficulty watching her young son navigate this world. He’s a tricky kid, very bright and curious, but competitive and insecure, and it seems he’s unable to get a break.

The Council says it’s very interesting that your son is competitive because in many ways he needs that experience and the praise from that, yet he’s also insecure. At the moment your son doesn’t have a lot of belief in himself.

When you allowed your son to come into this reality by giving birth to him it wasn’t for the purpose of living his life for him and telling him how to be. You’re supposed to help your son come into this life and then watch what he does. Look for signs of what he’s going through and what his interests are, but in no way do you shape his life to live it the way you want, or force him to accomplish what you think he should accomplish.

He’s come into this life with his own lessons and ideas. As a parent the best thing you can do is to watch him and allow him to unfold. The best way to do this is to show him love every day. Give him praise. Make him feel important with your attention no matter what he does. This will bring out his ability to have confidence in himself and look for what path he wants to take.

Anonymous says, My son’s little brother seems to skate through life, but my oldest son often feels excluded in our neighborhood, his extended family, and at his new school. The Council says both your sons have come into this reality with different ideas of what they’d like to experience.

Anonymous asks, How can we help our oldest son feel loved and know close friendship? The Council replies that first you must show this love to him at home. When he feels worthy, then he’ll begin to step out of himself and reach out to other people. This begins with you and with love and attention in the home.

Anonymous says, I often wonder what my son carried into this life from other lives. The Council says his intention is to become very successful. This will unfold when he becomes older. Right now just observe him, see where his interests are, and praise him, praise him, praise him.

Anonymous says, If his journey is meant to be difficult I can’t change that, but I’m curious if I can help him experience more peace and kindness along the way. The Council says your older son’s life isn’t meant to be a difficult one. What you think can be a big challenge for him right now, it was all planned in spirit before he was born. Let him go through these challenges, but if he has the belief, the praise, the attention of parents and his brother, that will help him get through what he’s working on in the present.

Anonymous closes by saying, My son is very resistant to any sort of meditation or mindfulness. The Council advises Anonymous not to push these on her son even though they’d love him to do them. When it’s time it will unfold. If your son needs to go through life a different way in order to enjoy it, experience it, have fun, and be successful, he’ll create that way.

The Fallacy of Karma

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who recently lost a lot of money in the stock market, feels depressed, and doesn’t know how to deal with this situation. They feel there are four ways they can explain this loss. The first is that they lost the money due to karma from a past life because they didn’t cheat anyone in their current lifetime.

The Council says thinking about your loss in terms of karma is helping you deal with what’s going on, but this thinking isn’t correct because there isn’t any karma. There isn’t anything you need to pay back. There’s no force outside yourself that’s making sure you repay your karmic debt. The only person that feels they have to repay this debt is you. You’ve set it up this way for this lifetime until you come to know who you are. You lost money because of the choices you made, not because of a karmic debt that you were supposed to lose this money to make up for something that happened earlier in this life or a past life. The idea of karma is something you’re using as a tool to give you some understanding until you can experience the truth of the way your life truly is.

Anonymous says, The second way I’m thinking about the loss is that I’m paying back my karmic debt from a past life. I might have owed people the money in my past life so now I’m paying it back in my current lifetime. In other words, my soul enjoyed other people’s money in a previous lifetime and now I’m paying it back with this loss.

The Council says if you enjoyed other people’s money in a past life, that’s wonderful, but there’s still no karmic debt you have to pay back. You may have decided coming into your current life that you’ve had a lot of money in other lives and now you’re interested in living the other side of this coin. And as you grew up you heard what people believed about karma and you chose to believe this to make you feel better.

The Council says your belief in a karmic debt isn’t true, but it’s helping you deal with your stock market loss. This loss was due to your choices. There’s no other reason. How about taking the focus of your thoughts and thinking you don’t need to believe in karmic debt anymore? You don’t need to think there’s an outside force that’s making you lose this money. There’s no debt to repay. For the rest of my life I can go on, live it the way I want, make the choices I want, and know there’s nothing that’s forcing me to go into this thing we call karma and repay anybody.

The Council says you’re just having an experience so you can deal with something and then question it so you can learn and grow from this experience. Now you can change the way you operate in your life. Change your understanding and feel the relief that comes with knowing you don’t have to pay anybody back. There’s nothing to do and there’s no karmic debt.

Anonymous says, The third way I think about this loss is that I have to work through karma in this life before I die. So if I don’t pay this amount when I’m 43 years old, I need to pay it back when I’m older when it’ll be more difficult to digest and recover. It’s better it happened at a younger age. Is this thinking correct?

The Council says, no, this isn’t correct thinking. What’s good is now that you’re hearing this you can start playing with refocusing your thoughts. The nice thing about thinking your situation is karmic and that you have to repay this debt before you die is now that you’ve heard what we have to say, you’ll realize there isn’t any karmic debt. Play with this thought. There is no debt. I don’t have to repay anything. I’m fine if I die tomorrow and I’m fine if I die 20 years from now.

Anonymous says, The last way I think about my situation is had I been more savvy with my investments I’d have lost less money. The Council says you’re very smart to think this way, but this has nothing to do with karma. Anonymous continues, But if my karma was to lose that amount of money, and I was smarter to lose less, karma would have got back to me in another way to bring me the same sorrow to make back for the money shortfall. Examples would be an accident, injury, sickness, etc. So either way I’d have experienced the same sorrow. The Council says you’ll create this situation only if you believe it. There’s no accident waiting to happen. There’s nothing horrible that’s going to happen to you because of this karmic debt.

The Council says when you begin to change your thoughts you’ll be able to create acquiring more money. You’ll create new people in your life. Maybe you’ll create a better job. When you change your thoughts to being a free spirit and that you have control of your life and how you live it, you’ll begin to see an abundance of everything coming to you.

The Council says again that the karma this person believes in only exists because of their belief in it. It’s a tool to deal with the loss of money that occurred. This was set up before you came into this life so you could get to this point and then somehow you’d be able to find out this new information about how karma doesn’t exist. You wanted to experience that sort of thinking and then change your thinking and experience the relief and the change you can create in your life with the new thinking.

What Can My Father Do to Improve His Kidney Condition?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Love&Health, whose father has been recently diagnosed with a kidney condition and he was also born with one kidney. We can’t do anything about this condition from a medical perspective. What can my father do to improve his health? Please let me know if there are any natural remedies, medicines, yoga, or meditation that can help his condition.

The Council says they’re trying to make it clear that everyone on Earth is a spirit and a vibration. Whether you lift your vibration or get depressed and your vibration goes down, you are still a vibration and a powerful creator.

Rather than looking for natural remedies and medicines, which always seem to have side effects, we’d like you to know that to cure or change the condition of anything it has to begin with the vibration of healing. It has to begin on an energy level first. This is the direction your world is going toward. This is what everyone here has agreed to. Everyone wants to learn more about who they are. They want to learn how they are in charge of their life and they are powerful and can create anything.

On a physical level lemon water is always good to purify the kidneys. But rather than going toward chemical healing, go into your chakras, which must all be working correctly, in order for your body to accept the healing energy that’s needed to change what’s been created in the body.

Someone can have many things wrong with them, but if their vibration is constantly lifting and your thoughts are constantly positive and you’re constantly thinking of being well, no matter what shows up on a diagnosis, you may have a wonderful and long life.

Begin with aligning the chakras, making sure the energy comes into these places. On a physical level massage is always good. It helps relax the body, which will affect each of your organs. But it’s most important to go into a meditative state or just sitting in a chair and thinking how you are well. In reality, you are well. If you look at yourself and understand you are a spirit being, you’ll know you are well. There’s absolutely nothing wrong.

No matter what’s created in this lifetime – having one kidney, a disease, a broken bone, whatever is going on – you are well. So it’s important to see yourself as well. Let go of your difficulties. Don’t hold onto how this hurts or that hurts or this is wrong and that’s wrong. Go into the vibration of being positive and believing in yourself. On a subconscious level you know how to make yourself feel well and that’s what’s needed at this time.

The real help will come from the belief you are well. And a belief is just something you think about over and over again. Believe you’re well and everything in your body is working correctly. No matter what the diagnosis is, you are fine, and you’ll begin to feel fine. Then you’ll see you are the creator and you’ll create more. This is the catalyst that will set you off into the correct path of working on a higher level.

What’s Going On With My Husband’s Health?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, whose husband has joint pain, arthritis, swelling of his hands and feet, and fatigue. His doctor thinks he’s likely to have lupus. The Council says your husband’s diet needs to be changed because he’s suffering from inflammation. He needs to eat very bland food for the time being and no sugar. If you do this you’ll see an improvement in his symptoms. Drinking tart cherry juice will reduce inflammation. The Council adds they don’t see that lupus is a factor.

Kristi asks for insight into what’s going on with her husband physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She understands physical ailments have an emotional and spiritual component. The Council says both of you set up in spirit to have the time to discover alternative ways to help yourselves. Spiritually you’re both on a path of self-healing. To do this you need to meditate a lot. See each other as being well. Concentrate on this wellness with the power of your mind.

Any kind of daily meditation that feels good will work. Sit in a chair and cover yourself with white light, or do the chakra breathing, or sit in a chair with your eyes closed and tell yourself you’re relaxed and think of beautiful scenic pictures in your mind. Some people chant, others pray. Experiment and you’ll find what feels the best for you.

When you see his physical symptoms improving you’ll come to the part of your path you wanted to be on where you concentrate more on the spiritual side. You wanted to experience that it’s possible to heal with your beliefs and with your mind. You wanted to experience this so when you feel well you can share this with other people who go through physical symptoms.

Kristi asks if the symptoms her husband is experiencing were planned in spirit and The Council says of course they were.

You chose a path of learning how powerful you are as spirits, and of teaching to help others. Your husband’s lesson is to find the reason he’s experiencing these symptoms and then to turn these symptoms around and heal them.

What is the Purpose of “Announcing Dreams”?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kenneth, who asks the purpose of “announcing dreams” where a soul presents itself to a living person, often declaring that soul’s intention to be reborn to the person or even just engaging in random parent-child activities.

The Council says you can have other souls come to you in dreams or visualizations and tell you what they want, ask you about your current lifetime, or if you’d consider accepting them into your current life as a child, a friend, or acquaintance. Souls will come to you and ask you what you’ve learned or ask you to show them what you’re going through. Souls don’t have to come to you based on a parent-child relationship.

Kenneth asks why some souls who come to humans appear as children and others appear as someone elderly from a prior incarnation? The Council says sometimes if the soul has known you before as a child or an adult, they’ll appear as a child or an adult. Or the soul will consider what you’re going through in your current lifetime and see whether you’d be more open to get information from a child or an adult. It’s always the spirit’s job to see where you are in your current life and figure out the easiest way to reach you.

Kenneth asks why some people have these announcing dreams while they’re still young themselves. The Council says it’s because you’re more open when you’re a child. You’re still very connected to spirit and what you go through in your life hasn’t changed your beliefs or somehow made you disbelieve what you hear.

Kenneth asks if souls who engage in this sort of communication with humans can declare their desire to individuals who they’ve had no prior incarnations with. The Council answers that they definitely can.

Kenneth closes by asking if he, as a spirit, thought it was necessary or desirable to communicate with a potential mother or father. The Council says not only a mother or father, but you’ve helped people many times. You’ve helped by coming in and giving the person ideas on how to get through something or spark some creativity in someone.

Will Taking Allergy Medicine Prevent Lesson Learning?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Irene, who has questions related to our post, What’s the Purpose of Chronic Pain? In that post The Council says you bring pain into your life to change your beliefs and Irene wants to know if this information also applies to allergies. The Council says every physical problem has an emotional component based on what’s going on around you. Physical problems also come from what you want to learn in your life.

As The Council looks at what you planned before you came into this lifetime, you wanted to create something uncomfortable in your life – not a great medical trauma, but something uncomfortable you could learn from. Allergies are a good thing for you to create at this time because in other lifetimes you created more serious ailments. The way to overcome allergies is to ask what the allergy is doing for you? What emotions are you holding in instead of expressing? What does my allergy make me think of? What aren’t I paying attention to that could be causing these symptoms where my body and my higher self are trying to bring something to the surface? What does this allergy remind you of?

We suggest you keep taking your medicine for the time being, but we also suggest you begin taking alfalfa. It’s very good for allergies and for every organ in your body that could be attacked by allergies. Take alfalfa in large quantities and you’ll see the change in your symptoms. Eventually you’ll feel confident enough to stop taking the medication and just keep taking the alfalfa. Drink alfalfa tea. Take at least five alfalfa tablets a day if you can find them. Sprinkle alfalfa on salads and other foods. You can’t have too much alfalfa. It’s such a harmonious food and can benefit everyone.

Irene says she’s allergic to dust mites and currently taking medicine so she’s not really bothered by the allergy. But will taking this medicine prevent me from learning lessons and healing if they are just suppressing the allergy, or is the medicine also part of my plan? The Council tells Irene you’re not supposed to suffer, so if you feel the medication is helping you, by all means continue with it. Will the medicine suppress your learning? No. Not if you start studying about allergies, what it does to your body, and what organs it affects. When you start learning about allergies and you become aware of the emotional component, your allergies will leave and you won’t need the medication anymore.

Is Leaving My Current Job Advisable Now?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, MindfulLoving, whos says that due to the current COVID crisis I’ve begun having a lot of anxiety issues related to job stress. I also feel restless and can’t sleep at night because of stress and anxiety.

The Council says many, many people are under stress from COVID. Understand that everyone has agreed in spirit to experience this. How you handle it is your choice. You can meditate, pray, and think better feeling thoughts about not going into the panic and anxiety or let this overtake you. The #1 thing to understand is that you called in COVID to see how you’d handle it, how you’d change your thoughts and trust more, believe, and visualize things getting better.

MindfulLoving says they’re worried they’ll start having panic attacks if the situation continues. The Council says the situation doesn’t matter. What matters is how you handle any situation. Whether it’s COVID, loss of family or friends, or loss of a career you want, what you chose to experience was how you’re going to handle the situation. When things get hard to handle, will you stop and examine it and think of things that make you feel better, and change the direction of your thoughts and energy?

MindfulLoving says they have a young child and I think I’m unable to manage everything at the present time. The Council says you can manage it all. It’s your focus that will determine what you can handle.

MindfulLoving says to cope with the stress they’ve begun reading books about meditation and mindfulness. I also read a lot about stock trading and entrepreneurship. I want to be financially independent and I have some savings, but not a lot. Can The Council guide me if leaving my current job would be advisable? The Council says at this moment it’s not advisable to leave your job. Treat your job as something that’s there to help you during this time. Try not to stress about your job. Do what you can.

MindfulLoving asks The Council if the path of entrepreneurship is for me and will I succeed in this? The Council says you’ll only succeed if you change your thoughts about how you look at your situation. It’s your wish to find more positive reactions to everything that happens. When you can get hold of this, in the future you’ll succeed in what you choose.

MindfulLoving asks what field should I be in and when should I make the switch? The Council says time-wise we always say it’s up to you how you manage to focus on what you want and to focus on the positive. Do the inner work of visualizing everything being okay. This will happen as you practice your positive thoughts and visualizations. Then you’ll get more ideas about what you want to do and the kind of work you want.

When you came into this reality you mentioned you wanted to teach others. Whatever field you go into, you’d learn it and then pass the information on and make it easier for other people. Don’t stress so much about what field you want to go into.

Focus on yourself and know if you believe you can take care of your child, you will. If you believe you can’t take care of your child, you won’t be able to. Work on your beliefs. If you believe you can handle this job, not forever but for a time, and then it’ll change and something better will come along. You’ll bring this in. It’s what you choose to focus on daily that matters.

Did I Plan in Spirit to Fail My Initiation in a Lifetime in Egypt?

A Past Life Initiation

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Looking For Guidance, who has a follow-up question about guidance she received in one of our previous posts. It’s about her past life in Egypt where she went through an initiation that she feels went wrong and she feels this has created a lot of fear in her soul.

The Council asks Looking For Guidance what she feels went wrong in her Egyptian life. The fear is only here to awaken you to itself so you understand it’s just an experience you went through and all is well for you? Once you realize it’s a past fear and you’re not currently going through the initiation, you can feel it and know that was then and this is now. 

You chose to go through this initiation in your past life. You didn’t choose whether you’d fail or you’d proceed on to the next step. When you failed the initiation and the fear overtook you, that doesn’t mean you have to let fear overtake you in your current life. It was an experience and it’s here again in your life so you can look at it.

Since you were unable to master the fear in your life in Egypt, you’re facing it again in your current life. Do you understand it better? Do you realize no matter what the fear is, your goal is to work your way through it, whether it’s in the life in Egypt, your current life, or a future life? It’s just learning about fear. It’s a memory and it doesn’t have to control your life this time around. There’s nothing that holds you to this fear. There’s only the wish to recognize it and move on.

Was the Initiation Part of My Pre-Life Plan?

Looking For Guidance asks The Council if it was part of her pre-life plan in Egypt to fail this initiation? The Council says you pre-planned to go through the initiation, but you didn’t pre-plan to pass it or to fail it. You chose to see if you could learn enough and know how to use what you learned under the condition of fear. It was your choice to see what you learned and proceed to the next step after the initiation, but not having enough faith in what you learned and in yourself, your initiation wasn’t successful. Coming into your current lifetime you created fear again. You chose to experience fear in a less dangerous situation to see if you could make it through the life you chose this time around. It’s just an experience to see how you handle fear.

Looking For Guidance says she’s learning that nothing happens by accident and whatever happens is always planned by spirit. The Council responds that spirit plans to have an experience, but spirit doesn’t always know how the experience will turn out. You grow by seeing how you handle the challenge. In your past life you chose to learn by going through the initiation and seeing if you could make it through.

You Have the Choice to Face Fear Again

Looking For Guidance asks why I planned the initiation for my life in Egypt? If I wasn’t ready to work with that amount of energy, why did I plan to go through the initiation process knowing it can cause damage to my soul that will be very difficult to repair? The Council says in that lifetime you didn’t know whether you’d make it through the initiation. The choice was yours. You had enough knowledge, you knew what to do with your mind and your energy, and yet during the initiation you weren’t able to hold on to everything you learned. You will never cause damage to your soul. It was an experience to be learned from. If you believe you’ll have difficulty repairing your soul, this belief will create a situation in your life where you have this difficulty.

You need to connect your current life with your life in Egypt and see that you didn’t live through your initiation and yet you’re still okay. You’re here creating another life where you have the choice to face fear again. You have a choice of how you want to go through this fear and heal it. If you choose to focus on failing, and why you went through the initiation and didn’t make it, and you brought it into your current life to frighten you again, you’ll stay stuck.

Don’t Focus on the Fear

Have gratitude for the fear that came into your current life because you chose it and it’s giving you another way to work through it with more understanding. You have a choice to let this fear go.

Looking For Guidance asks if The Council thinks she’ll be able to let go of the fear in her current life and move forward with the energy work she planned to do in her previous life in Egypt? The Council says they see Looking For Guidance is able to do this, but the choice is hers.

Looking For Guidance says she feels stuck at times and even though I understand the fears are from a past life, it seems difficult to get rid of these behavior patterns. The Council says you can get rid of anything. It’s your choice. Change your thinking about the patterns you want to get rid of, be grateful for it, and focus on the way you want your life to be.

Say Good-bye to the Fear

Looking For Guidance says she thinks her energy is rising and I see glimpses, hear audio sensations, and have dreams that are difficult to understand at times. I believe once I get rid of my fear I can move my spiritual progress and my ascension forward. The Council says wanting spiritual progress and ascension is wonderful. Say good-bye to the fear. It’s that simple. It’s only in your human form that you hang on to this fear and you feel stuck in it. When you understand where it’s from and why it’s here again, thank it and let it go. It can’t hold you. You’re the only one that keeps you in the jail cell of fear.

You Chose to Bring Fear into Your Current Life

Looking For Guidance asks The Council for guidance when she’ll be able to let go of the fear, and for help with her ascension. The Council says meditation, thankfulness, understanding, and perhaps reading about lives in ancient Egypt. Most of all you need to realize you’re here again. You chose to bring this fear into your current life at a lesser level than what you went through in Egypt. You planned to bring in the fear and see if you could let it go. We see you can let go of the fear, but it’s the way you think and focus on it that makes this possible. You are a spirit who was brave enough to challenge yourself to learn about fear and get through it.

Understanding Karma and Your Fear

Looking For Guidance asks The Council how she can help her soul ascend and move forward by erasing past karma. The Council says the karma you speak of doesn’t need to be erased. It needs to be understood. Everything you planned in your current life to heighten your energy and become closer to your higher self has to do with you being willing to understand this fear, say it’s okay, and then letting it go. Don’t stay focused on how the fear is coming from another lifetime. Don’t focus on how you brought this fear into your life and it’s going to ruin it. Change the way you think.

No Outside Negative Forces

Looking For Guidance closes by asking if there are any negative forces she needs to protect herself from? The Council says only your own mind and what you choose to think of. The negative thought of being stuck and having something to be afraid of will keep you stuck. Work on letting go of your negative thoughts. There’s no negative outside force around you.

How Will Moving to India Affect My Son’s Education?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Looking For Advice, who asks about the move her family is thinking of making from the USA to India in a few years. She specifically wants to know how the move will affect her 7-year-old son’s education.

The Council says that at this point the most important thing for you to be concerned about is not the education your son will get in school, but the education he gets at home. Your son planned to learn about family, relationships, trust, and confidence in this lifetime.

Do you and the other people around your son support how he thinks? Do you help him with challenges? Do you praise him? This will give him the first learning tools he needs. When your son has the confidence and believes in himself and he goes out into the world when you move, he’ll have these tools he learned at home. It’s important for you to take these steps, which is what you agreed to do in spirit.

When you move to India and you’re concerned the schools aren’t as good as they are in the USA, know that the challenges of the schools in India is what is necessary for your son at this time. Whether your son stays in India or comes back to the USA to study at a university, he’ll know how to handle this situation. He’ll have the experience of two different kinds of education. But The Council specifically emphasizes that the most important education your son receives is the education you give him at home.

Looking For Advice says her son is naturally very creative and is good in math and science. I sometimes feel an education in the USA will be better for appreciating my son’s creative talents in storytelling and coming up with new ideas. The Council says it’s important to help your son appreciate what he’s able to accomplish in anything he desires, and this needs to come from his family and his home.

The Council says preparations for your son’s home education should already be going on. Many parents, for one reason or another, put all the responsibility for their children’s learning on their teachers and their schools. Parents need to realize their children’s education begins at home with the family from a very early age. It’s very important to your son, because of what he wants to learn, that you give him the support, the courage, and the belief in what he wants to do and that he can do this.

Show your son a loving family. Show him that even if there are arguments, they’re worked out peacefully. And when there are disagreements, show your son that love is still there. One person never puts another person down. You allow each person to be who they need to be at that time and they will all grow from this. In allowing you are loving. This is what’s needed.

The Council closes by reiterating that when they are ready to move to India, the educational system there will be exactly what Looking For Advice’s son needs, even if you don’t think the quality of education is as good as the USA.

Can I Discover My Spirit Guides Through Meditation?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Thomas, who asks if he can meditate to discover his spirit guides so he can get life guidance and information about his past lives.

The Council says you have to believe in your ability to do this. When you learn you’re so much more than your human body that you’ve settled into for this lifetime, you’ll be able to connect with your spirit guides.

Meditation works differently for different people. Start by taking a few moments every day to sit quietly and allow whatever thoughts you have. Allow your thoughts to gradually quiet down. Some people use this time to pray. Others just sit quietly and wait for sounds. Ask yourself whatever questions you’d like an answer to. What do my spirit guides look like? Can I get signs they’re around me?

Start slowly. Everyone has the ability to connect with their spirit guides. When you know you’re a spirit in a physical body, which is what you came here to learn, it makes believing you can meditate more possible. The limitations of thought and doubt are what prevent you from believing in your ability to meditate.

When you’re serious about your meditation practice, perhaps by meditating at a certain time each day, or by lighting a candle, or burning incense, you’re telling your mind and your body it’s time to slow down and reach for a different energy.

Sometimes results are slow to come in the beginning, but you can definitely connect with your spirit guides through meditation. Your guides know what you’re trying to do and as you keep doing your meditation practice, your guides will reach out to you. All you have to do is take the time, whether it’s 5 minutes a day, 20 minutes a day, or an hour a day. Your guides will make your energy change within you. They’ll make it possible for you to reach different states of consciousness. You’ll feel peacefulness at first, and as you continue to ask questions you’ll receive your answers.

How Can I Allow More Well-Being into My Life After Cancer and Weight Gain?

This post answers a question for The Council from a woman named, Susan, in response to our post, Healing Ovarian Cancer. She says I was diagnosed with somethig similar to ovarian cancer two years ago. I haven’t been given chemotherapy, but instead I’m taking new drugs with mild side effects.

The Council says because you are the creator of your life according to what you believe (whether your afraid of chemotherapy or you knew there could be an easier drug to take), you have created this easier way. It’s your belief.

Susan says she was filled with fear at first, but I’ve learned about the Law of Attraction from Abraham’s teachings and because of these teachings I actually live a joyful life.

Recently I was feeling unhappy about gaining weight, which I thought was caused by hormone tablets I take. Now I know this has just been my belief. The Council says what you’ve created is, coming through your cancer and now you put the challenge of gaining weight on top of the cancer. Instead of loosing hope and being depressed, how does it feel to have this weight gain? What are you learning from it?

Your weight gain doesn’t have to remain this way. Repeatedly ask yourself in quiet time or meditation, why did I create this weight gain? Why do I want to go through this and what can I learn from it? Once you see what you’re learning from the weight gain and you’ve learned enough, your weight won’t be a problem anymore.

Susan says she thinks she’s doing all she knows to allow her well-being and she asks The Council if they have any additional advice. The Council suggests Susan surround herself in love everyday. Visualizing yourself in a pink bubble does wonders for how you feel and works on all levels of healing. Pay attention to your chakras and do the chakra breathing we recomment in another post.

The Council says there aren’t any particular past life considerations for Susan’s cancer and her weight gain. It was your wish in spirit to be focused on these challenges. What you wanted was to have an experience you could learn from.

You’ll be very surprised how quickly your dis-ease all changes when you pay attention to what you’ve learned through cancer, weight gain, your belief systems, and the people around you.

Why Can’t I Let Go of My Ex-Partner?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eden, who asks why she’s unable to let go of her ex-partner. She says they were together for a year and it’s been almost two years since he ended the relationship and I still can’t seem to move forward. I feel like I’ve tried everything and yet it still consumes me and I’ve got no idea what to do. Sometimes I feel like I don’t want to be on Earth if we can’t be together.

The Council asks Eden how she can move forward when she’s constantly thinking of her ex. In planning for this lifetime The Council doesn’t see anything permanent between you and your ex was planned.

The Council asks what Eden can take from her experience with her ex that she liked and create with someone else? You must change your thoughts. Find what was good in this relationship and create it with someone else. Imagine there’s another partner for you with all the attributes of what was good in your past relationship and add onto it what else you’d like.

As soon as you begin to think about your ex, acknowledge it and then change your thought. It can be as simple as thinking about a flower, a tree, a beach, or anything else. After a while this will become your new habit. You’ll have better thoughts and your mind won’t drift to your old companion. This is the discipline you need to change your life.

The Council says there are several different souls that are willing to come into Eden’s life when she changes the way she thinks. If she goes in one direction there’s a soul who’ll fill her needs. If she goes in another direction there’s a different soul that will fill her needs. There’s a happy relationship there for you, but you have to do the inner work first of changing your thoughts.

What you wanted to learn in this lifetime was discipline in all things. Discipline by knowing what you want and how to get it by using your mind and visualization until you see you can create. As you create little things you’ll be able to create bigger things, sometimes referred to as miracles, until your life completely changes.

Why Do So Many Christians Believe Christ Died For Our Sins?

This post answers a question for The Council from an anonymous reader who wonders why a common belief in Christianity is that Jesus died on the cross for our sins.

The Council says it was planned in spirit that people would believe one of the purposes Jesus died on the cross was to forgive our sins. Many people needed to have the belief that the Messiah came and freed everyone from their sins. If they followed Jesus’s teachings he would give them a way to everlasting life in heaven. This is part of the Christian belief. Not all Christianity follows this belief. There are many who choose this belief in their current lifetime to help them through whatever other lessons they bring into this life.

Anonymous quotes a popular Christian website that says: “We deserve to die and be separated from God forever because of our sins, but Christ took our place. By his death on the cross he paid the price for our sins. Now all we have to do is accept his forgiveness by trusting him alone for our salvation.”

The Council says when you learn who you are and what this life is about, you never die to be separated from God. God is within you. These are man-made thoughts and rules created to try and get you to follow them, but the spiritual purpose is different.

Some people choose to hear these rules to go through them and question them and then find their own beliefs. What do you find comforting? Do you believe this? Does it give you a sense of moving forward with a goal of being a better person? Or is it too strict, makes no sense, and you believe there’s no separation between yourself and God?

Do you believe Christ’s death on the cross took away your sins, and you can misbehave, and do whatever you know isn’t right, and goes against your feeling good because Christ will take away these sins? What’s your belief about this?

Anonymous says this seems like a strange way to guilt people into believing. The Council says some people use this form of guilt. Many ancient teachings and religious leaders tried to control people by guilting them and preaching fear to get them to go along with whatever they wanted.

You have heard and read these things so you’d question what you believe, and digging deeper into this question you’d find more about who you truly are and find your way to better feeling thoughts. You’d discover you don’t need to follow anyone’s rules to come back into spirit, to have a wonderful spiritual life, and to come back into another lifetime and choose new lessons. Asking this question is a way you’re trying to find the feeling and the knowing of who you truly are.

Christ dying on the cross for our sins was something believed at that time and for many people this is very helpful. This did happen in your reality, and how you follow it and what you believe about it is there to help you grow.

The Council closes by saying there is no way they see in the teachings of Jesus that he was in any way trying to guilt anyone into following rules. He was only trying to get people to love themselves.

Struggling with Financial Prosperity, and Son’s Fear of Darkness

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who’s been struggling a long time trying to achieve financial prosperity, but without success. Most of my adult life it seems I’ve had difficulty getting to a place where I’m not struggling to pay my bills on time. This may be from a mindset I adopted as a child where thriftiness was valued. Both my parents, particularly my Mom, grew up in poor families and I think I learned life would be financially difficult.

I’ve enjoyed being creative and making things with my hands in the past. I thought maybe I could supplement my income by selling some type of handmade item, but lately my creativity seems blocked. And I don’t want to be so busy trying to make things to sell that I’m unable to spend time with my children.

The Council suggests it’s good to get creative and use more of your time to make things with your hands to sell. What gets in your way is a deep belief that things will be difficult and money will be scarce.

Find an hour or two each day to create things with your hands. As you create, think the thought that you are making something with love. Prosperity is love. What I create will bring joy to others. As you work it’s very important to have positive thoughts like these.

In the beginning you can give away some of what you’re creating, but do you go around to different retailers and show what you’ve done and see if there’s an interest? These steps must be taken.

There’s a lot of worry about lack of finances that get in your way. Meditate or pray that things will turn around. Focus on the good you’ve created. When you concentrate on love and positive thoughts you’ll allow more of what you want to come into your reality. Everything is currently coming from your belief that finances are difficult right now and this belief is holding up your prosperity.

Learning to meditate is a good idea. The easiest way would be for you to sit for 5-10 minutes a day and focus on your heart chakra. Just see the color green in the center of your chest and that green becoming larger and larger, spreading across and beyond your body several inches. This will change your energy and vibration and open up more doors to increasing your finances.

Picture in great detail what your life would be like if you had all the money you desired. Feel what it will be like to be creative and have the things you create bring in financial abundance. Imagine things the way you’d like them to be every day.

On a different subject Sarah says her teenage son doesn’t like being separated from our family when he goes to bed at night. Since he was young he doesn’t like his bedroom door closed and he prefers to have someone in his room as he goes to sleep. Sarah asks if there’s a reason for this and how can she help him deal with this situation?

The Council sees a past life back in the Fourth Dynasty in Egypt where your son was a young man training to be a high priest. There were several initiations that he needed to go through. One of these initiations was to be enclosed in a sarcophagus overnight. Unfortunately your son wasn’t able to handle the energy he experienced when he was in this sarcophagus and he died inside it.

That fear of the dark has come with him in his current lifetime. By having someone in the room with him he realizes he’s not alone and he believes he’s able to be rescued if something goes wrong like it did in that life in ancient Egypt. When you feel he’s able to understand you can tell your son a story about high priest training in Ancient Egypt and ask him to imagine what it would be like to spend the night in a sarcophagus, but there is someone to let him out if necessary. This feeling of safety will help him heal this fear in his current lifetime.

The Council also suggests asking your son about you leaving his room for around two minutes when he’s going to sleep and then coming back in. After a couple days you can begin to increase the time to three minutes and so on until the feeling of safety comes back to him and he can go to sleep on his own.

Why Am I Experiencing Life Long Depression and Anxiety?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Teri, who asks why her higher self chose to experience chronic lifelong depression and anxiety? Teri says that despite working very hard to be happier, to love myself, and to find meaning and purpose in my existence, I mostly feel ambivalent about being on Earth in a physical body. I never felt I was living a life that suits me. Life feels like just surviving.

The Council says if Teri has ambivalent thoughts about being here and feels like she’s just surviving, the energy your thoughts are putting out will attract more of these situations to you and make what you experience be not enough, sad, and depressed. Depression usually occurs when you don’t understand what’s going on with your thoughts and what you’re allowing yourself to create. There’s confusion about the direction you want your life to go in. Trying to live a life that’ll give you what you want isn’t happening because you don’t understand your depression is really being caused by you.

Stop and ask yourself what you’re thinking about when you feel depressed. Ask yourself why you’re not moving forward, and meditate on this for as long as it takes you to understand that your depression and anxiety are caused by no one but you. The reason you want to experience this depression is that you want to change it. You are in control of the direction your life goes.

In spirit you wanted to experience going off course so you’d read a lot OF books to bring you back on course. Not so much self-help books, but reading books on miracles that happen to people, like Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moorjani. You have experienced miracles in other lifetimes. In your current lifetime you went deeper into the depression and anxiety to change these, but also to show the people around you how to accomplish these changes.

Read books about people that have changed their lives and how they go about it. Read books about angels. These books will give you the push you need to begin to change your energy. Then more things will come into your life that you desire. As you become aware of this energy change you’ll create better and better situations.

Teri says her big dreams and desires are a constant source of longing and suffering because they’re unlikely to come true. The Council says thinking your dreams and desires won’t come true will all by itself keep your dreams from coming true. You have to learn to change these thoughts to where you’re dreams will come true even if you don’t know how they’ll come true.

Teri says she’s spent over 30 years trying to live by spiritual principles. She’s been focusing on and feeling ease and joy, trying to change self-limiting and negative beliefs, trying to manifest her dreams, practicing appreciation, and being of service to others. But this doesn’t change the fact that I still feel depressed and disappointed with myself and the life I’m living.

The Council asks if Teri experienced joy when she was doing these things, or were you doing them with the idea they’d change your life? When you do for others you should get a natural feeling of joy. If you continue to do for others and practice positive thoughts, focus on how you feel. Look for the joy. The more you can do where you feel joy, the easier it’ll become to feel better and better.

Teri says it’s like there’s a clear limit to my potential here on Earth. And The Council says it’s only the limit that you create with your beliefs and your thoughts.

Teri asks if it’s possible that her soul simply wanted to have the experience of hating her life? And The Council says a soul never wants to experience hating it’s life. Your soul goes into a reality and creates things that are challenging with the thought that it will be interesting. I’ll find a way to change this and I’ll feel love again. I’ll find a way to bring love into this reality.

You came into this life to have the challenge of depression and anxiety so you could have the experience of changing it to love. And every time you experience changing something that was difficult for you, the energy goes out to help others who also need to change something difficult.


Listen to the entire 8-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to answer Teri’s questions and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question.

What Can I Do About My Financial Difficulties?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Miya, who says she’s in a repeated cycle of financial difficulties. She doesn’t like being around negative energies, but most of jobs that would accept her are with the public where she has to deal with different types of people and by the end of the day she feels drained.

The Council says they see a lot of negative thoughts on Miya’s part which are bringing in negative experiences, affecting her finances, affecting where she works, and affecting the people she surrounds herself with. You think you’re being positive, but there’s just as many negative thoughts and they’re counterbalancing each other.

The Council feels Miya senses negative energy from many people and they ask why she focuses on this? Do you look at people you feel have negative energy and realize these people are spiritual beings? Do you realize they’re here trying to learn their lessons and go through obstacles, joys, and experiences? Can you send these people positive energy? Can you understand what they’re going through?

The Council says Miya needs to be around people and truly focus on the good in them. You need to tell yourself to reach out to their spirit. This will make you change how you see people. This will raise your vibration. When this is done the right kind of work will come to you. People that you like to be around will appear in your life. It’s about your thoughts and your beliefs and how they will give you a better perspective on what’s going on.

Miya says she lives with relatives who don’t believe as much in spirituality as she does. The Council says you came into this lifetime to bring love. Love is allowing everyone to be who they are. Allow your family to be who they are. They don’t have to have the same energy as you. They don’t have to have the same beliefs as you. Your lesson is to send these people love the way you see them.

Miya says she’s in her late 20s with a bachelor’s degree in audio and still lives with her parents. The Council asks if you’re looking for the kind of work that your degree will help you get. If you feel you have to work at something you don’t like, volunteer somewhere you can use your audio skills. This should give you joy and begin to change your energy. You have to bring in some joy.

Miya says my family is barely getting by. We’re all crowded in a small home in a disturbing neighborhood. I still find ways to be happy, but happiness doesn’t pay the bills. The Council says what will help pay the bills is to look for things about your family that you like and be grateful you have it. This begins to change your vibration and bring in different situations. Your main purpose in this lifetime was to go into negative situations and look for the good in them. As you find the good these things will begin to change.

Miya says she prays for a financial change and tries to manifest a miracle. This job that’s coming into my life is going to be okay, but my patience for having money in my hands is disturbing me. The Council says the miracle she’s asking for is a change in her beliefs. Be grateful this job is coming to you. Be grateful it will pay you money you need. As you’re grateful for these things, whether you like the job or not, the perfect situation will come along.

The Council closes by saying Miya wanted to experience negativity in this lifetime and she’s created it all around her. Now go back and look at for the good in each of these situations. Improve your thoughts. Know that each person is a spirit, whether you like them or not, and bless them. You have no idea what these people are going through and what their challenges are. Begin to think of other people with compassion and send them love. Be grateful you have a job whether you like it or not. Be grateful for the amount of money you’re making whether you like it or not. Be grateful for your environment. You’re not alone. If you can do this, things will change for you.

Who Dictated the Ten Commandments to Moses?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Keith, who simply asks: Who dictated the Ten Commandments to Moses?

Ordinarily we like to summarize The Council’s guidance for those of you who don’t feel like listening to the audio recording. Sometimes we use the summary to try and clarify what The Council says during a session.

In the case of our session with The Council to answer Keith’s question, we’re concerned that our words won’t do justice to the guidance The Council provides and we suggest you listen to the 5-minute audio recording of this session.

This session highlights the idea that we all create the reality we experience with our beliefs. It talks about soul group agreements. And The Council reminds us that as a spirit we can create anything.

How Do I Let Go of a Decades Old Memory?

This post answers a question from a reader named, Pam, who read one of our other posts titled, What Past Life is Affecting My Current Life, and Why? where a reader named, Darla, says she experienced a past life as a child who was crippled. The Council said Darla remembered this past life because in her current life she wants to understand how people cope with disabilities, and she wants to experience how these disabilities can be changed by consciously reaching for better feeling thoughts.

That post prompted Pam, to write the following comment:

Ah, I know all this too well. My husband has multiple sclerosis and walks with a walker and it stirs up difficult feelings for me who saw my uncle suffering greatly from MS when I was only 5 years old. I think that vision of him lying in bed shaking and having to be fed by his wife has stayed with me all my life. Thanks for this post, Cynthia and Bob.

Cynthia and I replied to Pam’s comment saying The Council might suggest finding ways of letting go of that vision of your uncle and trying to see him in a more positive light because The Council says you attract into your life what you think about. And this prompted Pam’s question:

Interesting. How do I undo a memory from decades ago?😩

We thought this was an excellent question for The Council and this is what the rest of this post is about.


After we read The Council Pam’s comment about her husband, they asked Pam: Don’t you find it interesting that something you found so upsetting as a child, you created in your life as an adult?

The Council says when Pam has an uncomfortable memory of her uncle, it’s to her benefit not to think of how horrible that was. Instead she can switch her focus to him being grateful to have someone who was there to feed him and take care of him. When you look at this situation and find things to be thankful for, you create a different (and better) outcome in your life.

The Council says Pam expects to experience the same thing with her husband as her aunt experienced with her uncle on the path she’s going down currently. By believing and imagining this you’ll create this experience. Can you change your focus? Can you make a change where you don’t see your husband getting that bad and going down a path where he has to be fed? Your husband can live the kind of life that you create in your reality with your thoughts. You have the power to make his journey easier in your lifetime. What you create with your thoughts you will experience. The Council says this is very advanced knowledge to understand what they’re saying here.

In Pam’s lifetime her husband could get better. There could be a miracle. His multiple sclerosis could slow down. He can live a full life. Part of your husband’s soul will go along with what you create with your thoughts. Yet there’s another part of his soul that creates in his life what his soul needs to experience. The Council says Pam won’t know what this is. Instead you’ll be experiencing what you believe and are focusing on. The part of your husband’s soul that needs to experience whatever it needs to experience, whether it’s something similar to what you’re creating or something much more difficult, he’ll create this in his own reality.

The Council says we live in many different realities at the same time because we want to experience things in many different ways. The person next to you is functioning in your reality the way you’re creating it. But there’s another part of you that will create this situation a different way and you’ll play a different role in that reality. The Council repeats it’s advanced understanding that it isn’t just you in this one life. You’re experiencing things from the past and from the future. You’re learning your lessons and having your experiences, but all you’re aware of right now is what you’re creating and focusing on.

The Council says you’ll only experience what you believe. In Pam’s possible reality her husband isn’t getting worse and she won’t experience that because that’s not what she’s focusing her attention on. Her husband may focus on what Pam is focusing on, but if there’s a part that needs to learn differently, that will go on in another reality and Pam will play a different role in that reality. The Council suggests sitting with these thoughts and trying to feel what they would be like. This is advanced learning.

Pam should focus on things with her husband she can feel grateful for and seeing him getting better or staying the same and having a comfortable life as much as possible. See him the way you want him to be and focus on how you’d like to feel as your husband gets better or is holding his own. Is it possible for Pam to create a miracle and her husband be free from MS? The Council says, Yes.

What Pam saw as a child with her uncle triggered what she brought in with her husband so she could learn from it. The Council often says our main purpose is to bring love into each situation. When you experience something like what Pam experienced as a child, the memory isn’t going away because your soul wants you to go into this experience and change it. Bring love and well-being into this situation with your husband.

Who Made the Rules for Communicating with Spirit?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Keith, who says there appear to be rules about communicating with spirit. For instance, spirit can’t tell us winning lottery numbers.

The Council says of course spirit can tell you winning lottery numbers, but when you decided in spirit to come into this lifetime, you wanted to create for yourselves. If spirit gave you the winning lottery numbers you wouldn’t have the joy of creating them on your own.

The Council says the way to create winning the lottery is the way you create everything else. You think about it. You feel it. You talk about it. You write about it. Why do you want it? What would you do with it?

Ninety-nine percent of the people that ask their spirit guides for winning lottery numbers don’t believe they will get them. When you don’t believe it and you don’t expect it, you won’t create it.

If you ask spirit for winning lottery numbers and you do the work of thinking about it, expecting it, and knowing that it’s there for you, you’ll bring these winning numbers into your life. But when you came into this lifetime, the joy you looked forward to was creating with your thoughts and your vibration whatever it is that you wanted.

The Council says winning the lottery is a lesson in creating. Most people who pick lottery numbers or gamble want to win, but they don’t expect to win. And this belief will keep you from winning. Everything is right there for you in the higher vibration. When  you meditate, or laugh, or have fun, or have joyous dreams you can feel, that’s creation. And in this creation there’s nothing you can’t attract.

The Council says there aren’t any rules for communicating with spirit. You decide you want to and then you work at finding a way. Whether you ask for information in your dreams or whether you work at meditating (as Cynthia did), with that strong desire the information will come to you.

If you have a question for spirit, ask the question out loud and then be open to an answer, however it comes to you. Whether the answer comes on the TV, or a song on the radio, or something you overhear people talking about, spirit will always get the information to you. If you have difficulty meditating spirit will find a way to get the information to you. It’s your job to be open to the answer and expect it. Know your answer will come and it will.

The only rules about communicating with spirit are the ones you make yourselves. Spirit is right here for you all the time. Most people don’t believe this. And when you’re at a point where connecting to spirit is an important focus in your life, a connection will be made and spirit will make it. You show the discipline and the desire and spirit will make the connection happen.

Why Did I Create My Skin Sensitivity to the Sun?

This post answers questions for The Council from an Anonymous reader who asks why they created a life where their skin is so sensitive to the sun? It seems like their skin is getting worse rather than better and I truly dread the summer. They want to enjoy this physical reality and pass on a love of nature to their children. And the reader asks if they can do anything about this skin sensitivity?

The Council says Anonymous’s skin sensitivity to the sun definitely comes from some past lives. The cells in your skin in your current lifetime brought in a life The Council believes took place in India. You were a beautiful woman in that lifetime. But the beautiful women who were made up perfectly, dressed perfectly, and had perfumed hair were never allowed outside. There were only small gardens they could go into, but they were never allowed to go out in the general population.

Because you were very curious in this lifetime you’d sneak out at night to be among other people. You wanted to be recognized for your beauty, but to go out among the people you had to be covered from head to foot. You couldn’t let anyone see you until you were in this particular place where people gathered. And so there was a belief that being out without covering your body was dangerous.

Unfortunately your sneaking out at night was found out and you were thrown into a cell and forgotten, even though you were one of the most beautiful women. After a long time you just rotted away. If you were able to get some sunlight when food was brought to you, the light hurt your eyes because you became sensitive to it in the dark.

In another lifetime in the middle 1800s you were an orphaned boy who helped different shopkeepers by running errands. In this life you always felt unseen. No one appreciated you. There was never a thank you. At night you ate whatever food you were able to get. In this lifetime, when you spoke to other orphans that also had to steal to keep themselves alive, the one thing you always said was that you wanted to be seen and appreciated. You were going to create this in your life, even if you had to wait for another lifetime, which people believed in at this time.

In your current lifetime your skin reveals the individual you are. The skin represents you as a person. In your current life your skin is still in hiding from the fear of being discovered from your life in India. In your current life you badly want to be seen just like the young orphan boy wanted to be seen. You are dealing with the part of you that wishes to enjoy life in the sun, and the part of you that fears having to sneak out completely covered from the life in India and when you were discovered, thrown in a cell, and forgotten. The memory of these past lives is here with you in your current life.

It would be good for you to read books on past lives and understand that as you realize where your skin sensitivity comes from it will begin to heal. When you really understand your skin sensitivity, when you can visualize what it must have been like, feel what it must have felt like, and when you can feel the fear of being outside without being covered, you’ll realize you brought all of this into your current life to heal it. You’ll realize as you heal this sensitivity that you’re free from it. Then begin to speak to your body: “You’re safe. You can be among people. You can be outside.” And the sensitivity will begin to ease.

If Anonymous is able to do the inner work The Council describes, their skin sensitivity can decrease. When you feel safe in your current life your sensitivity will begin to change. Go out in the sun, but make sure you’re protected. Then little by little you can remove protective clothing as you feel a lessening of your sensitivity. It will happen slowly if you do the work.

Questions About Her Son’s Physical Development

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, SoulPeace, who asks about her son’s health and weight. Her son will be 6 years old next month. When SoulPeace was pregnant with her son and when he was younger, her family was going through some issues, the pregnancy was difficult, and she believes her son’s health suffered.

The Council says when you have a difficult pregnancy, some souls who come in won’t be affected by this and others will. In your case the issues that you had were to set up what you refer to as the problem of your son’s health, weight, and size. The circumstances of your son’s birth were agreed upon by your son and all parties involved. The Council says because this was agreed upon beforehand there’s no reason to feel blame or be upset that the pregnancy was difficult, and that your son isn’t currently measuring up to certain standards of what you think of as normal.

The reason this situation was set up this way was to teach you to search for the correct beliefs that would help you feel better about your son’s situation. Your son doesn’t need to live up to anyone’s standards or expectations. He needs to feel accepted, not compared to other children.

How you treat your son means a lot. Do you frequently mention to him that he doesn’t measure up to certain standards of size and weight? Do you make your son feel he’s not as strong as other children? If you do this, then you’re teaching him he’s less than other children. Your son wanted to go through this experience to feel good about himself and to teach you and himself that the life you create is the result of your thoughts and beliefs. What is currently going on is exactly what’s needed to do this.

The Council asks SoulPeace how she handles this situation with her son? Does she inform him his weight isn’t what it should be? Does she harp on his eating habits and force him to eat more? When a child grows up with restrictions and rules, they will develop allergies or asthma because the people surrounding him are cutting him off from how he should be feeling about himself as a spiritual being living in a physical body.

The Council asks if SoulPeace can make light of her son’s weight? If the doctor says your son is still under weight, do you worry? Or do you tell your son this doesn’t matter and as he grows he will gain weight? Do you advise your son to eat what he can? Tell your son when he’s hungry he will eat. The more SoulPeace can make light of her son’s situation the better it is because this is what he needs to accept his situation and accept himself.

The Council says SoulPeace’s son has come into this lifetime wanting to experience acceptance. If you change how you speak to him, how you treat him, and show your son acceptance, The Council guarantees his situation will improve. As her son gets more confidence in himself the allergies will slowly disappear. When your son thinks better about himself he’ll eat more. This lesson of bringing change with your thoughts by bringing joy and happiness into your lives can be worked through if SoulPeace and her son can handle it with love and acceptance.

The Council closes by saying SoulPeace’s son is capable of leading a relatively normal life. All of what she views as problems will change once they can learn to accept it.

How Can We Change the Life We Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, PE, who wants to know how to change the pre-birth plans they made when they were still in spirit, and they give the following example. If you’re very sick, can you decide you’d rather not deal with the issue of sickness in your current lifetime and your body will heal itself?

The Council explains that the experiences we wish to go through once we enter our physical lifetime are chosen by us in spirit to help us grow. During your spiritual pre-birth planning, sometimes you pick a lesson that will be very difficult once you enter physical reality, although in spirit it doesn’t feel like it will be difficult. The spirit chooses to have the experience because it wants to learn from it and grow. When you pre-plan something in spirit, your higher self knows why you want to go through this. But in your physical lifetime as you face these difficulties you may say, “I’ve had enough. I don’t want to deal with this.” But your spirit knows better; it knows how much it wants to go through this experience to learn and grow from it.

When you’re going through an experience and find it too stressful and it prevents you from experiencing other things you desire to experience in that lifetime, you can go through part of it and decide to continue it in another lifetime instead. But that’s the human part of you making that decision. The spiritual part of you will help you get through a difficult experience and when you finally learn the lesson, the body will instantaneously heal.

Sometimes all you need to realize is that the healing comes from within you. When you realize you’re a powerful spiritual being in a physical body, you can change your life. Many people who go through an illness don’t feel powerful and go through it without understanding this is something they chose in spirit. They think let me ease this experience and continue it at another time. The Council says it’s possible to do this.

But The Council adds that what you experience is what you believe. If you believe you’ve chosen this difficult illness in spirit, you can speak to your spirit in meditation and prayer and ask for this difficulty to change. If your faith and your belief are strong enough, you can do this. You, as a human being, are always in control with your thoughts, with how you look at each experience, and how you try to understand the lesson behind the difficulty.

The Council says whatever lesson we choose to go through in this physical reality we always come for one reason and that’s to figure out how to bring love into the lesson we’re going through? How can I learn to love in this situation? How do the people around me learn to love in this situation? Always know you can reach out to your higher self in meditation or prayer and ask to be shown the lesson you wished to learn. Ask to see this lesson the way you presented it to your spirit guides when you pre-planned it. And ask to remember who you truly are as a spiritual being and that you have a choice in your physical life.

As a human being having an uncomfortable experience you can say, I’ve had enough, I don’t want to deal with this difficulty any more. But who you are as a spiritual being knows it has to push you through this difficulty. It was your desire to get through this experience. But if it seems too much for you right now, you can ask to let yourself learn from what you’ve experienced so far, and continue this lesson in another lifetime.

When you meditate and connect with your higher self, a dialogue begins and your higher self will know how to get you through this difficulty, how to make it easier, or how to change it. You are your higher self. You have access to your higher self when you meditate, whether you feel it consciously or not. You have access to your higher self when you pray. You have access to your higher self when you dream.

When you learn you are your higher self, which creates the human part of you that’s going through this difficult experience, that spirit part of you is coming with you on this journey and is seeing how you handle each experience. Your higher self understands what was agreed upon before you came into your physical reality and it knows how the human part of you can handle the difficulty.

Meditate and visualize healing energy around you. Know your connection to your higher self is there, even if you don’t feel it consciously. The more you think of the way you want your life to be, your life will adjust to these thoughts. Take time to meditate and speak with your higher self. You may not remember what you planned. Your life may be difficult and you think you can’t learn from it. Can you find a way to change your life? Can you make it less traumatic? But you have to reach out with your thoughts, knowing that you’re connected to your higher self.

Many people believe there’s the human part of you, and your spirit part is way off somewhere else. It’s not. You are that spirit part of you. When you think you bit off more than you can chew, the higher part of you knows what you planned and why you planned it. If you believe your higher part can ease your difficulty, it can. If you believe your higher part can cure your illness, it can. Each lesson you go through brings you to the understanding you’re not a victim. When you know there is an answer to your questions – and you don’t have to know how your answer will come –  the answer will come when you’re open to it. But you have to think, “I am the one who will change this. I am the one that will connect with the part of me that has all the answers.” And when you let go of the fear and the discouragement the answers will come.

Play with the reasons you could have planned your difficulty. Many people use illness or a disability as a punishment. The Council says that’s only a thought in the human mind that you’ve carried with you into this world, and you’ll create the disease or the disability if you feel there’s a reason for this. When you connect to spirit, you’ll know that everything you think you should be punished for was just an experience for you to learn from. There’s no one here keeping track of how far you’ve come or if you’ve been punished long enough. The answer comes in prayer and meditation. In your quiet time your answers will come.

The Council ends by saying they think some who hear the guidance in this post won’t find it easy to understand, and they say this is fine. Listen to it again and again and do the mediations, and talk to your spirit, and you’ll see the difference in your lives.

Listen to the entire 17-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us. A session like this one is particularly difficult to recap with just the highlights, as we’ve attempted to do in this written summary. And let us know what you feel about this session.

How Can I Think Differently to Stop My Dermatitis?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Vibrationally Aware, who says they have a skin rash called dermatitis and they’ve used every homeopathic and prescription treatment imaginable. They’re aware that beliefs are the underlying cause for all physical ailments and they’d like The Council to tell them which belief they’re holding on to that’s causing the dermatitis, and how they can think differently so they can move past this disease.

The Council feels the first step is to use Edgar Cayce’s remedy of castor oil on flannel and laying it across the entire abdominal area, which will help the liver remove toxins from your body. The Council also suggests putting the Palma Christi castor oil on the bottom of your feet to continue the drawing out of toxins process.

On another level The Council sees that you and others in your soul group have created your current lives in a way that you’d experience this skin issue because it was a way of looking at and accepting yourself the way you are. This comes from a lifetime in ancient Greece where you and your soul group were stage actors who believed you were better than the people you performed for because you were able to become whoever you wanted to become in the roles you played. In your current life you and members of your soul group have put yourselves in a single body with a single role to see if you can now accept who you are and show yourself to others?

The dermatitis will automatically heal for each person in your family as they become comfortable within themselves. They wouldn’t play a role to get others to approve of you and you wouldn’t think you’re not as good as other people because of the way you look. There is the belief that what wants to be healed by spirit from all of you in this group sharing the experience of this dermatitis together, is acceptance of one’s self and acceptance of each other, and not being afraid of talking about that you have dermatitis.

The dermatitis isn’t something that needs to be hidden and there’s no reason to feel shameful or less than other people. The reason your soul group created the dermatitis is to enable all of you to get past this in your current lifetime and learn there’s more to you than how you appear. You don’t need to become other people and have different personalities for different people you’re around. You wanted to be completely in your current body, accepting yourself and each other, and feeling good about showing yourself the way you are to the people around you.

The combination of the inner work of self-acceptance and the use of Edgar Cayce’s castor oil treatment will enable the dermatitis to heal. As you use these castor oil packs for 20-30 minutes at a time, meditate and picture the castor oil removing toxins from your body. As you realize the castor oil is helping you heal, you’re putting yourself in a higher vibration of not only healing the physical body, but also healing the emotional body.

Castor Oil Healing Process

Once a day, 20-30 minutes, for 1 week.

Stop for a week.

Again once a day, 20-30 minutes, for another week.

Stop for a week.

Then for 2 weeks in a row, once a day, 20-30 minutes.

Then stop for 2 weeks.

Then 2 weeks in a row again, once a day, 20-30 minutes.

Stop for 2 weeks.

In your third month as you begin to see a change you can go back to once a day, 20-30 minutes, for 1 week and repeat the frequency you used for the first and second month in the third and forth month.

Always concentrate on the healing that is taking place and doing the inner work to learn about yourself.

Vibrationally Aware says their mother, their son, and several nieces and nephews have dermatitis and asks if this is a case of inherited beliefs? The Council says it’s a case of others in your soul group coming together and saying, “Let’s try to heal this together. We lived one life together, and now lets live this other life together to heal it.”

The Council says dermatitis runs in your family because it was chosen by all involved to have it run in the family. In the lifetime in ancient Greece, many in the soul group who were actors would laugh and with poor judgement look down on others who were just one person because they thought how boring that is while they have the freedom to be whatever they like. Now their spirit says let me go into that sort of life. Let me see what it feels like, and learn from it, and heal it.

Listen to our entire 10-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Vibrationally Aware and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Have I Incarnated as Different People with Different Parents?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Jaden, who asks if there are Earths where he’s incarnated as different people with different parents, and if so, how many?

The Council says it’s difficult to answer how many lives Jaden has lived because at each moment we all have the ability to create new lives in what we’d consider the past or the future. Jaden has had many lives on Earth where there’s a tendency to come back into a new life and work on other lives you’ve had with souls you have worked with before.

While you’re creating in your current lifetime, there’s a part of you that sets up experiences that’ll be created in what you think of as your future. You are pure spirit and there’s no ending to what you can create. There are lives you’ve created in between your lifetimes on Earth where you’ve helped others souls. You are always creating and living.

Once you create a life it goes on forever and that part of you is with you in this particular lifetime. It’s important for you to know you are spirit and you’re ability to create is why you and all of us are here. We create what our life will be like in spirit, we create how we’re born, we create the families we’re born into, the friends and partners you’ll have, and how we’ll die when we decide to leave the Earth plane (or whatever reality we’re in).

The life you live and the people around you are all energy. When you die you remove your consciousness from that life, but it has been created, it is energy and it doesn’t disappear. It just goes on and on as if it was floating further and further away on a wave, but this life is always out there.

In response to Jaden’s question if there are Earths where he’s incarnated The Council says this is true. It’s the Earth at another stage. You can create the lives in any time period on Earth and you also can create lifetimes that aren’t within the Earth. There are many ways you experience life.

Everything is created by the person who’s experiencing it. If you believe and imagine with your thoughts and visualizations that you are here, but also feel you’re on another Earth that’s beyond this Earth and you’d imagine in your mind what this other Earth would be like, you would have created another Earth. It’s all up to your thoughts and beliefs. Some people believe this is the only Earth and in their reality it is the only Earth. You may create another lifetime in the future or the past where you believed you lived on two or more Earths.

The Council sees two particular lives that Jaden really enjoyed as a male on the water. In one life he was a Viking and in another he was on the sea with Christopher Columbus, the discoverer of America. In Jaden’s current lifetime are you drawn towards the water? These were important lives for Jaden’s spirit. Read about Vikings and about Christopher Columbus and see if you’re drawn to this.

When The Council was asked how we can create new past lives they said you can split your consciousness off into another creation of whatever it is you want to experience. You can experience this past life through your imagination while still in your current life. Or you can truly experience this past life by letting go and have another part of you there in another lifetime, but you’re not aware of this past life in your current lifetime. It’s just a part of you that you send off to experience something else. Eventually we’re all working towards being able to project ourselves into these other lifetimes. The Council acknowledges this is beyond what’s understandable for some people right now.

Jaden also asks when we return to spirit can we be greeted by people who are our family in parallel Earths? And The Council says definitely. When you go back into spirit you become one with everything. There are spirits you work with continuously and they’ll be there in spirit to greet you. Even if these spirits are living another lifetime and you were to end your current life and return to spirit, their spirit can come and welcome you and then go back into their life and continue with what they’re creating.

This session has some admittedly difficult to comprehend ideas about what we’re able to create as spirit. Listen to the entire 10-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Jaden and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Creating When You’re Depressed, and a Relationship Question

This post answers a follow-up question and a new question for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Marylander, who says The Council makes sense when they say Marylander can create things even though they’re depressed. It’s the small things Marylander says they manifest okay, but the bigger things they have more difficulty manifesting.

The Council says they hope Marylander understands that how you manifest the little things, which is by thought, and visualization, and feeling, is the same exact process you use to manifest the larger things. It’s your beliefs that keep you from thinking you can only manifest the little things.

Marylander thinks they have a victim mentality and it’s easy to fall into a pattern where everything and everyone is against them. The Council suggests Marylander use discipline during these times by acknowledging these depressing thoughts and then change what you’re thinking about. Go to a happy thought, or a fantasy, or a beautiful picture in your mind that brings you some joy. This helps you be in control. You can then make your situation lighter or bring yourself out of depression by changing the feeling.

As you realize you’re in victim mode or depressed, determine what you’re thinking and realize you have the power to change your situation by changing your thoughts. Then be aware as you change your focus, how your feelings begin to change.

Next Marylander asks why they were so attracted to the person they call, “L”. Marylander says they felt a strong need to have L in their life and it became unhealthy for them because L didn’t want to be with them. Marylander feels like L stole their chance of being happy. The Council says L isn’t responsible for making Marylander a victim. L is remembering on a soul level what the two of you had agreed to in spirit. Not wanting to be with you is exactly what the two of you had planned.

The Council sees four previous lifetimes you shared with L where they were your mother, your father, your husband, and a wealthy financier. In the last case you were an orphan and were adopted by the financier who took care of you. As your husband, your mother, and your father the spirit who is L also took care of you.

In your current lifetime you both agreed you would be the strong and independent one and come together as friends showing L how strong you are. That’s the reason you aren’t together in a relationship. If you wish to have a strong friendship with L you have to work on your depression and your thoughts of being a victim. You have to become strong and show L the independent and decisive person you can be. This is what you have planned in spirit. But your life hasn’t gone in this direction so far. The Council says knowing this and doing the inner work to change yourself, it’s possible for there to be a change in the relationship.

The Council says L wants to fulfill their part in your current lifetime by not being the stronger one and taking care of you the way they did in previous lifetimes. By not being in a romantic relationship with you L is allowing you to change. But if you stay in the role of victim, what you both planned for this lifetime isn’t taking place and The Council thinks you’ll have an opportunity in another lifetime to be strong and take the dominant role in your relationship.

The Council’s parting words for Marylander are to be aware of how you feel as often as you can. Ask yourself what you’ve been thinking that’s responsible for how you’re feeling. If you’re thinking thoughts that bring you down, depress you, and hold you back from moving forward with your life, then remember to do the inner work of changing your thoughts.

Listen to the entire 11-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Marylander and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Questions About Changing Careers, and About a Relationship

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Roshan, who says he’s 34 years old and about to enter a new 7-year cycle. The Council says they find it very interesting that many people in our reality believe a cycle changes every 7 years. The Council asks if this means you can’t have great changes in 5 years or 3 years. You can gain wisdom and knowledge when you become aware of them. When you want answers and you look for them, they’ll always be given to you.

Roshan says he’s been doing corporate IT his whole adult life, but earlier this year he took some training in energy work and spirituality. Now he’d like to start a business using this training and he asks The Council if this new line of work is a good career switch for him.

The Council says the energy work and spiritual work is a good path for Roshan and that he can succeed in it. If you continue to learn different ways to teach people and see them change their lives, you’ll not only feel satisfaction in helping these people, but you’ll also learn by observing them as you show each person great love and their potential.

Never stop learning as much as you can. Take classes that work with energy. Take classes that show you how to motivate people without pushing them beyond what they’re interested in or without insisting they work on this motivation in a specific way. If you give your students the freedom to learn the best way for them, you teach them independence and give them faith in themselves. These students will learn not to be dependent on you, but to find their own way.

The Council suggests starting out by practicing with friends. Talk to small groups of friends about what you believe in and what you want to do. These friends will tell others and your work will grow by word of mouth initially.

Don’t keep what you learn to yourself. Don’t be afraid to teach the secrets of how people can change their lives and get ahead. Many people won’t share what they learn because they’re afraid people will learn what they have to teach and won’t need them any longer. Teach with love and confidence and help your students and clients grow. Share what you learn that helps you feel good.

The Council doesn’t suggest leaving your IT work right away and not having an income. This would be a hardship. Be grateful for the IT work. It gives you the abundance you need to live your daily life and take classes. When you’re ready to leave the IT work, you’ll know it’s time.

Roshan says after many years being single he finally found the woman he thought would be his partner even though they only spent a few days in each other’s company. She lived in another country and the pull was so strong he moved there, but to his dismay she found someone else.

The Council says Roshan and this woman have had other lifetimes together. They both agreed in spirit that she would come into your life to lift your energy so you could go on and learn new things and believe in yourself.  The Council says of course you’d want this woman to be your partner, but that wasn’t part of your spiritual agreement. Remember how it felt to be with this woman and how you’re energy lifted. This was the purpose of your coming together. You don’t have to be with a particular person to feel your energy rise. She was the light that turned on this energy for you. That energy is within you.

The Council says they believe Roshan has limiting relationship beliefs. You believe it will take a long time to find a partner, or perhaps not find a partner at all. When you find yourself limiting your beliefs, change your focus, change your thinking. You are working to lift your energy and bring more light into your life. The correct person will feel your light and know you’ve made an agreement to come together when you’re both ready. And you’ll draw in the perfect partner.

The Council says Roshan has ahead of him many of the things you desire in your current lifetime. If you do the inner work, focus, and lift your energy, you’ll have what you desire.

The Council closes this session by reminding Cynthia and Bob they’re on a path to bring knowledge, and light, and feelings of love and hope to people who are drawn to us. They say our desire was to be of service and we’re doing this. This brings The Council great joy, and they hope we feel it also.

Listen to the entire audio recording of our 11-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Roshan and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Can I Manifest If I Have a Mental Illness That Prevents Me From Feeling Joy?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Marylander, who asks: How does manifesting work if you have a mental illness that prevents you from feeling joy or staying in a good state?

The Council asks if Marylander is never in a vibration of joy? Do you never feel a moment of peace, or love, or happiness, or something that interests you and takes your mind away from sadness? Look for these moments and hang onto them as long as you can.

You can manifest when you’re sad or depressed, but it takes a longer time. If you can’t feel the joy you need to feel to manifest what you want into your reality, then try believing it’s somewhere within you. Look for pictures that represent something you’d like. Make a scrapbook. Look at these pictures every day and imagine how nice it would be to manifest what these pictures represent. This will make your energy a little lighter. You can do this.

Marylander says as a depressed person their emotions are mostly negative. They don’t feel they can control this and medicine makes things worse. The Council recommends becoming very aware of what you feel and then see what you’re thinking to bring this feeling in. Identify your thoughts and the feelings that come from these thoughts. It’s not always easy to come out of feeling down. What’s the opposite of what you’re thinking? What would you like? Make it up. Pretend.

When you want to change something in your life, be aware of what it is. Be aware of how you feel and how you’d like it to be. If you can get a picture in your mind of what you desire, that picture goes out into the universe and tells the universe what you desire. Even when you’re down you can look at a picture and perhaps it will change how you feel a little bit.

The Council says that because you feel you can’t create, they’re here to tell you you can still create. There will be moments of joy. There will be pictures to look at and wonder what it would be like to live like the pictures. This is the way you begin to manifest.

Marylander says there were two people they wanted to be with and they feel guilty they didn’t attract them as a partner. And they wonder if they were able to be more positive, would they have manifested these relationships?

The Council says if the relationship didn’t happen, what kind of feelings did it leave you with? Were you able to get past the “nobody loves me” phase and get to, “this is something I wanted. It didn’t work out. We must have created the possibility before we came into this lifetime. Let me look again and see what else is coming into my reality.” In other words, by focusing on aspects of the relationship that worked, they don’t have to attract the same person, but someone with the qualities you desire.

Marylander says they don’t feel capable of having someone be with them and The Council says this is the main problem. You have to change your thoughts. You are capable of having someone you desire be with you. You have to think of bringing in the right person for you with the qualities you want. And The Council asks what Marylander is bringing to the relationship? When you begin to think of “us” (you and someone else), the energy changes to help you create the someone else.

Be excited about the possibility of these relationships, but if they didn’t work out it was agreed upon in spirit. Your belief system for this lifetime was to become a stronger person, was to let go of doubts, and always know you can create something better than what you’ve experienced. And The Council adds this guidance is for everyone.

Marylander says they’re abandoned and alone. And The Council says how about thinking you’re in a state of creating the perfect partner for yourself. What would I like in this new person? And they suggest Marylander forget the idea of being abandoned and alone.

Marylander asks if it’s pointless to pray when they’re feeling abandoned and alone. The Council says it’s good to pray if you pray with positive thoughts. Examples include: Dear God, please help me. I know you will. I just need to be a little patient. Dear angels, bring the right person to me. I know you’re already doing it, I have to be ready to receive it.

The Council closes by saying the only thing that’s preventing Marylander from manifesting is themself and how they focus their thoughts. The point of being depressed is to learn how to bring love into the depression and to turn it around. And The Council adds to be patient with yourself.

Listen to the entire 10-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Marylander and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel.

She Wants a Relationship with a Woman Instead of a Man

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sanni, who’s been told by several trusted spiritual counselors that they see a man as her future mate, but she only wants to be with women.

The Council says this is a wonderful lesson for Sanni to stay with her beliefs and what she knows she wants to create in her life. When you create so many people around you to tell you something other than what you want, are you strong enough to create what you truly desire rather than what these other people see for you?

Sanni expresses concern she doesn’t have the strength she needs to stand up for what she desires because she’s very lonely, and because she feels something inside her pushing her to be with a man even though she doesn’t want this. Sanni thinks being with a man is supposed to be for her healing from past lives where she was abused by men.

The Council agrees with Sanni that she’s created this dilemma and they ask her why she feels she’ll end up with a man because she’s lonely if this isn’t something she wants. And The Council asks Sanni if she’s continually focusing on what she desires. Does she think about details of the kind of woman she wants to be with and the kind of life they have together instead of worrying about being with a man because she’s lonely?

Sanni has every right to live the life she feels will make her the happiest. And The Council says what she’s going through now has nothing to do with any past lives of being abused by men, contrary to what Sanni says she believes. The lesson you chose in this lifetime was to find strength and the belief in yourself to be independent and to realize when you know what you want, you can create that.

The Council encourages Sanni to stay with the gay community she feels a part of, and they underscore the importance of her doing the inner work of staying focused on what she desires. The Council sees there’s a woman who Sanni’s made a spiritual agreement with before coming into this lifetime to be in a relationship with her. She only needs to make the decision to have the kind of life she wants instead of the kind of life other people tell her about. When you make this decision and you’re sure about it, and you do the daily inner work to support this decision, you’ll bring this woman into your life.

The Council says Sanni’s lesson is a simple one although it’s not always easy. Get assured of what you want and go with it. The Council even recommends Sanni stop going for readings if she finds them upsetting. It’s not what other people tell you. It’s what you want to create.

The Council sees Sanni’s relationship with a woman is closer than she thinks, but they suggest she stop focusing on the feeling she doesn’t have a choice and she’ll be forced to be with a man. This won’t happen as long as she continues to focus on and create what she desires.

Why Am I Constantly Stuck in Negative Situations?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, cmw787, who says her life is on a downward trajectory and has been for years. She’s doing everything she can to fix her life, but she’s unable to do it. Cmw says it feels like every day will be worse than the day before, she’s living every day in misery, and she’s praying for death.

The Council begins by asking cmw how she thinks she can change her life when she expects every day to be worse than the day before and she’s praying for death? The Council says this alone will keep her vibration from raising higher so she can begin to change and bring in the sort of life that she would like.

Cmw says she’s sick of being lectured on the law of attraction. She says she’s practiced it and lived it, and it’s not working at all for her. She doesn’t understand why this is happening to her. The Council notes that cmw doesn’t want to believe in anything that’ll make her life better.

Cmw says she was contacted by people who came to Earth from the Pleiadian star system about 2 years ago, but she doesn’t understand what they want from her. The Council says Pleiadians are very loving and they’re trying to get cmw to focus her thoughts differently so she can raise her vibration.

The Council tells cmw it’s not wrong for her to want to know about herself, but she insists on looking only at what’s negative and trying to understand that. They say understanding isn’t necessary for cmw. What’s necessary is to change how she thinks about her life. She should ask herself if meditation will help you? Ask if helping other people will help? Will having a different perspective on your life help you? Will it help you to focus on something to be grateful for 10 minutes every day? If you do these things it will begin to change your vibration. The Council feels if cmw continues to focus on why her life isn’t working the way she wants won’t make her life any better.

The Council tells cmw she has the talent to become an oracle because in previous lifetimes she was a teacher in Atlantis, Lemuria, ancient Egypt, ancient Rome, and ancient Greece, and in her current lifetime she’s questioning these talents. Meditate on these time periods and ask for information. More information will come. As you tap into these past lives you’ll change your vibration without even knowing how you did this.

The Council says as cmw taught in these ancient places, there were some students that found it difficult to work with energy and change matter, and cmw had difficulty understanding this. So coming into her current lifetime she created a life where she has doubt and negativity to learn from it. She wanted to see how difficult it can be to change negativity into a higher vibration, and see how difficult it can be to go from expecting things to go wrong, to hoping they go right. The lesson was to go through these difficult times and when it seems the most difficult, to grasp onto the littlest thing and begin to change it with something more positive.

Cmw asks The Council what her soul purpose is, and why is she constantly stuck in negative situations. The Council says it’s because her belief is more negative than positive. Your purpose is to find a more positive way to live your life. The Council asks cmw to try to improve her life again, even if it’s with the tiniest seed of hopefulness, and she’ll find a difference.

The Council advises cmw to surround herself with a few crystals that she picks out for herself and begin to meditate, even if it’s just for 10 minutes. In Atlantis you worked with changing energy and taught with crystals. Familiarize yourself with this again and be patient. As you begin to change your thoughts the tiniest bit, you’ll notice experiences in your life will improve.

The Council says as cmw reads about these different ancient cultures she’s been part of, just by taking her thoughts off negativity and putting them on these better feeling times, she’ll connect with this higher vibration and her journey will turn in the direction she wishes.

The Council sees a positive outcome for cmw, but she needs the discipline she taught in these other lifetimes to concentrate on more positive thoughts. If she’s able to read about these ancient times, and surround herself with crystals and meditate, her life must change.

I’m Depressed and Nothing Feels Real

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Harmony, who says she has a problem with the idea that each person creates their own reality, because this idea feels like nothing is real and everything is replaceable. Her questions are in response to our recent post, Learning About Spirituality, But Has Fears and Doubts, which attempts to answer Harmony’s earlier questions about being filled with fear, doubt, and questions about her spirituality, which replaced her feelings of joy and peace she previously felt from learning about spirit. (Note: Harmony apparently posted her original question using the name, Lola.)

The Council says everything is replaceable, and everything in this reality is real. When this reality comes to an end for Harmony, she’ll go back to being who she truly is as a spiritual being and the reality she was living is no longer real for her. The feeling Harmony has that things aren’t real is because she intuitively knows they’re only temporarily real.

The Council says Harmony has created everyone in her life. She’s created these people with the understanding from these souls who wish to be in her life. You have the power to bring in souls and lessons you wish to experience. No one is creating in your life but you.

The Council says while Harmony knows this reality doesn’t feel real, it would be wise to change her belief to: eventually she’ll become the spirit she truly is, and she’s created this reality to learn from it. This reality is something she wants to experience, but she’s in charge of who comes in and out of her life.

Meditate on the idea that you’re close to connecting and understanding your higher self. Your reality is temporary and you’re in it because you wish to be. You wish to go through these difficult thoughts so you can learn from them.

You are this intelligent soul that creates some realities to be light and easy, some realities where it’s difficult physically or mentally, and there are realities where you’re brought on a spiritual path you don’t understand and you need to ask questions and read about it and meditate. You need to listen to your ideas, whether they’re positive or negative, and see where these ideas bring you. Each step will guide you to questions and answers until you can connect with something you’re comfortable with.

Harmony asks if love is only a construct of belief and The Council says love is the only thing that really exists. Love is truth, love is reality, and love is who you are and we all are. Love allows you to have doubts. It allows you to create any kind of life you wish and to learn from it or not learn from it. Love has created everything that is. And if you’re not experiencing love, it’s not because there’s an absence of it. It’s because you’re not allowing love in.

Harmony asks if the people around her are created by her and change according to her beliefs? And The Council says that’s exactly how it is. Then Harmony adds that this idea scares her and makes her feel alone. She wants other  people to be real. The Council says the people around Harmony are as real as she allows them to be. There are souls that are in Harmony’s life to play whatever part she wishes them to play. And it’s because of the love we all have for each other that we come in to play these parts.

The Council advises Harmony to sit still and concentrate on her heart for as little as 10 minutes a day, look for a little light that shines there, and allow this light to grow more and more. Clarity will come.

Harmony closes by apologizing if others find these questions uncomfortable, and The Council says Harmony has created the uncomfortableness to learn from it.

Why Do I Regret My Last Abortion?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Theresia, who asks why she regrets having her last abortion?

The Council points out that Theresia says she was on medication during this pregnancy, and she and her husband were financially and mentally unstable at the time. The Council says this medication would have caused a birth defect in the child and the spirit of this child agreed not to be born under these circumstances. And the child didn’t want to go through a life of of struggle and lack because of your financial and mental situation.

The Council says Theresia’s desire to have children is very real and they ask her what she and her husband have done to change their current situation so they can become more independent from her parents and be financially able to have a child? This is something they spiritually agreed to do in this lifetime. The Council says there was also a spiritual agreement to learn how to support yourselves, have goals, and move forward. What are you doing to change your future so you can have the next child you become pregnant with?

The Council advises being excited about having a child rather than being indecisive about it. They say the energy you create around this child will have an effect on your lifetime and the lifetime of the child.

The Council says it would be good to look at your careers. Is there training that’s needed for advancement or a new career. But The Council points out what’s most important is to change your thinking about being stuck and being the victim of circumstances, and know you have the power to change this thinking and these circumstances. Goals and ideas are needed. You need something to move toward. What would you and your husband like your life to be like? What steps can you take right now to lead you in this direction?

Once you begin to have a plan and start working towards it, you connect with who you truly are as spiritual beings. You’ll have more energy and can play with more ideas. You are the creator of your life. See how you and your husband can support each other to move forward. Change your thinking and be excited about the future. The Council says they don’t see that sort of thinking at this time.

The Council says the simplest books to read in order to connect with spirit and feel good about themselves are the Emmanuel books by Pat Rodegast. Once you connect with spirit, everything begins to fall into place. These books explain what is, and why. They explain how everything is planned in spirit and there are no mistakes. Life is a wonderful learning arena. And at the end of your life when you pass back into spirit, it’s a wonderful experience where you learn from your life.

As you begin to connect with spirit and know there’s more to life than what you’re experiencing in your present, this connection will lift your vibration. And as you go to a higher vibration your life has to change. You’ll begin to bring in better experiences. Once you make this spiritual connection, the lower energy that’s currently in your life won’t be a match for you any more and will not be drawn to you. As your vibration lifts, the circumstances of your life will also lift to match your new vibration.

Listen to the entire 11-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Theresia and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.
