Questions About How We Manifest Our Own Realities

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

Firefly: I have some questions regarding manifesting our own realities. Are things like cigarettes and alcohol only bad for my health if I believe they are?

Council: Yes.

Firefly: I hear people warned that these things will lower one’s vibration.

Council: If you believe it will lower your vibration, it will. If you believe it will hurt your body, it will. You must be very sure of your thoughts around this because you’ll create it. And sometimes wondering if it’s bad for you, because you have that thought, it will be bad for you. So we’d suggest if you want to do this, you create yourself having a wonderful life, having a healthy life, and feeling great.

Firefly: Is there a good reason to be thinking about whether one’s vibration is lower or higher?

Council: You will know immediately by how you feel. When you’re depressed or when you’re angry, you know your vibration is low. And so you question: Why are you depressed? Why are you angry? Why are you sad? What’s going on? When you’re laughing, when you’re thinking of memories that have made you happy, when you’re planning the future things that will make you happy, your vibration automatically lifts. So you’re very much in control, and you’ll feel it.

Bob: So you’re saying there is a good reason to think about whether your vibration is lower or higher?

Council: We’d say you don’t have to focus on whether your vibration is high or low. Just focus on how you feel in the moment. What’s going on? And then the way you feel, or what thoughts made you feel that way? And you’ll know exactly how to lower or raise your vibration. It’s that simple.

Firefly: Does it really matter if we think about whether our vibration is lower or higher?

Council: What matters is that you have thoughts that make you feel good. And the more you can do that, you’re automatically in a raised vibration. You are automatically living a good life. And so stay in joy. We say this all the time. The answer to everything is: find the joy and you’ll feel the happiness. Find the love and you’ll feel the happiness. You’ll feel that lift in your vibration and that is the answer. Everything you look at, love it. Show compassion and happiness, and think thoughts that bring you joy, even if it’s something from when you were five years old, if it makes you laugh or if it makes you smile.

We can even say when you meditate or just sit in a chair for five minutes, smile. Sit there and smile. Don’t think of a thing, just smile. You’ll find that you feel better.

Firefly: Do people like me ever decide to indulge in alcohol and cigarettes before coming into this life just for the purpose of having fun?

Council: Yes, of course. And then you can perhaps experience having fun and not needing these things. Or having a life with drugs and alcohol and loving every part of it. It’s how you think about it. You are in control.

Firefly: If I feel like I’d like a better income and more money very quickly, what’s the best way to align with these resources?

Council: Play games, walk into stores, look at expensive stuff, see yourself buying it, see yourself winning the lottery, see yourself with a large bank account, look at your checkbook and write numbers in it that give you much more money than you have. Play the game and experience it. You can buy whatever it is. If you want a house, picture the house. What does it look like? Picture every detail of it and that it’s yours. And the more you practice having the things you want that are expensive, the universe will bring that to you. Actually it’s you that’s putting out into the universe, “This is what I want.” And when you realize this is what you want, and you have fun with it, it must come to you.

Firefly: I’m in a loving relationship with a man who’s a good friend. By imagining how I’d like the relationship to expand and go in beautiful directions, am I creating this relationship?

Council: Of course. You create with your thoughts

Firefly: Is he creating a completely different reality or relationship, or are we creating one together?

Council: What he’s creating can be different, but if you do come together, then that part of you that’s creating it, you’ll both create it and come together. And there are so many different parts of you that part can go off and create something very different, but you won’t experience it because the part of you that’s in your current reality wanting this, because you want it, and you focus, and you create it, you will have it.

Firefly: Does this creation stretch over many of our lifetimes?

Council: Anything you can create, you can create in any lifetime, over and over again if that’s what you wish.

Bob: Do you see Firefly and the man she’s in a relationship with have shared previous lifetimes?

Council: Most of the lifetimes were as siblings, and so that has no bearing on what’s created in your current lifetime. Focus on what you want now.

Firefly: I sometimes want another child with this man who I love. I have three children from a previous relationship. Is it outlandish to want to manifest a baby that’s ours, but have the pregnancy be delightful and non-damaging to my body at age 43?

Council: Why is that outlandish? Just that thought will keep you from creating it. You can create anything you want. If this is what you want at this time of your life, of course you can create it, but the doubts will get in the way. And so it doesn’t matter. There are women that are older that have created pregnancies. Think of what you want and why you want it. Does it bring you happiness? Then go off and create it. See it and feel it like it’s already yours.

Firefly: By doing my best to visualize getting pregnant, can we really create an outcome that defies what we believe we’ve learned from scientific observation?

Council: You can create a future that has nothing to do with scientific information. You can create something that’s way off the charts. There’s no limit. If 100 people say you can not create this because of reasons A, B, C, etc., it doesn’t matter. What matters is what you believe. And so take the limits off and create whatever it is.

Firefly: My child is worrying me and I want this child to be safe and well. How can I help them best?

Council: See it. Connect with the spirit that has agreed to come into your life. If it’s something you both want, if you agreed upon it in spirit and the spirit said, Well, let’s look at your life at the time I want to come in. Is it something I want to experience? Is it something I want to share with you? Everything is possible. Connect to the spirit, offer it a home, offer it safety, offer it help, offer it happiness, and most of all offer it love.

Firefly: How much power do I have to create change for others?

Council: You can not create change for others. Everyone is their own creator. You can help them. You can create what you know they want and see it for them to give them more support, more energy, and strength to stay with the thought of what they want, but you can not create it.

Firefly: Is it possible, in imagining all that one wishes to manifest, to be asking too much or employing greed?

Council: There’s no greed. There’s no limitation on what you can ask for. Everybody can have everything they want. There’s no limit to anything. And so if you want 100 different things, you are not taking them away from another person. There’s enough for everyone. Use your power of manifestation.

And so we send you blessings, and joy, and love, and the ability to have wonderful memories, to laugh, and to hope, and to stretch out your hand and help each other, and enjoy this life that you’ve created. Remember, no one creates for you. It’s all up to you. The people around you that you’ve chosen to be in your life have agreed to come and help you. They’ve agreed to learn from you. There are things that they need from this.

And so you’re all there, everything is planned with love, and when you go back into spirit you’ll go, “Wow, what a trip.” So enjoy and have fun.

Why Am I Plagued With Injuries That Prevent Me From Running?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader about their running injuries.

Anon:  I’ve been plagued by running issues lately. Running is critical to my mental and physical health. It’s also time spent connecting with friends.

Council: A belief that you have is that running is critical for you. When your spirit is ready to change that belief, which we see is coming up, you will change the thought that it is critical. It is not critical. It is a belief. Slowing you down by not having you run is your higher self telling you there’s more to learn, there’s more to do. And so when you don’t slow down and look at your life and at options, it’s common to have something happen that will slow you down.

And so we’d say meditate and examine the thought: Why do you think running is critical to your health? Believing this will make it critical, but there’s nothing critical to your health. What is critical is what you believe. And so when you believe you are spirit, you are in control. And it’s possible it’s time to let up on the running, maybe just for a while, and learn something else.

Anon: Why do I keep injuring myself while running?

Council: To give you more time to explore.

Anon: My knee, my foot, it’s driving me crazy. I don’t have time or money for physical therapy and I don’t understand why it’s necessary.

Council: It’s necessary because you need the time to discover more about yourself, to discover more interests, to perhaps change your path and increase what it is in your life, and to practice manifesting what it is in your life. And so that is why this is happening.

Anon: Aren’t our bodies meant to be in motion?

Council: Some bodies are and some aren’t.

Anon: I feel like my vibration is highest when I run often, so I’m trying to understand where these barriers are coming from.

Council: Ahh, so you’ll find a way to feel a high vibration without having to run. Very interesting.

Anon: I’ll take it easy, but then can I meditate myself back to a near-daily run?

Council: You can, but your higher self knows what you’ve planned before coming into this reality. And so trust your higher self. Meditate. Instead of meditating on running again, meditate to see how to expand. What’s out there that your higher self, which is you, has planned for you in this lifetime? What a wonderful adventure that is.

When you meditate, connect with your higher self and say, “Show me the way. What is it that we planned?” And let go and relax, and don’t be consumed about having to run. You’ll find your world expanding and you’ll learn more about yourself. And so we say relax and meditate.

Look how smart your higher self is when you’ve planned something and you aren’t heading in that direction. So something is created, which is the knee, ankle, and leg problems, to have you go and find the time and go in the direction of the things you wanted to learn. It’s a wonderful gift.

And so we send you blessings, and joy, and love, and the ability to have wonderful memories, to laugh, and hope, and stretch out your hand and help each other, and enjoy this life that you’ve created. Remember, no one creates for you. It’s all up to you. The people around you that you’ve chosen to be in your life have agreed to come and help you. They’ve agreed to learn from you. There are things that they need from your experience. And so you are all there, everything is planned with love, and when you go back into spirit you’ll go: “Wow, what a trip.” So enjoy and have fun.

Why Do We Get Sick, And How Do We Heal?

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

Lindsay: I’ve looked through old posts, but I wasn’t able to find any specific questions on seasonal colds and the flu. Why do humans get sick with viruses?

Council: In your reality, it’s part of the belief system. You came into a reality with others where this is something that happens that you go through, and so you want to know how you’d handle this. What would make it easier for you to go through this? People get sick because they believe it’s there, and sooner or later they’ll get sick.

Oh, the flu is going around, I hope I don’t catch it. And just by thinking, “I hope I don’t catch it,” brings it into your reality. So it’s the thoughts and the beliefs that make you sick, and that makes you experience seasonal allergies and terrible colds in the winter. People die of cancer because they believe someone dying in their family had it, so they’d also get it. It’s possible, and being in that state of fear, it’s created.

And so we’d say, if you wish to be well, you must be in a place of loving yourself and having good thoughts. Your reality is wonderful. Your reality can make you strong and it can make you well. You can sail right through this lifetime, But when you go into thoughts like, here comes the Winter and now we’ll be sick, and here comes the Spring and now we’ll have allergies, it’s the thought system and a deep belief that this will happen.

And yes, it’s here, it’s created in your reality, but now how will you handle it? You know by handling it you must change your vibration. How do you change your vibration? You change your thoughts. And just that would make you not be sick in the Winter, or not have allergies in the Summer.

Be grateful for being in a reality where there are different seasons and different things to appreciate in each season, and to love your body and know that it’s strong. And of course, do the wise thing physically. Eat the right foods and get plenty of rest. It’s all your belief and how you go forward with what you think.

Bob: You already address this next question to a large extent, but I’ll ask it anyway.

Lindsay: How can we prevent illness with seasonal colds and the flu?

Council: As the season approaches, meditate, sit, smile, and think I am healthy, I am so wonderful, I have created a healthy body for myself, and all is well. Keep seeing it, seeing it, over and over again. You are just feeling great. What a wonderful surprise. I’ve created a season that I am just sailing through feeling wonderful.

Bob: And you’ve already addressed to some extent this next question, but I’ll ask it anyway.

Lindsay: When you or your child is sick, what can we do to heal quickly?

Council: Play a game while you are sick. Do things you like. Lay around, watch TV, play music, create something (possibly arts and crafts), be together in the family. And just know that being in the family, going through this sickness, it’s just something that for some reason you’ve created, and you have the ability to get rid of it. But treat it as a fun thing. Treat it as if it’s a time for me to rest, so I’ll rest. But I will be happy because I am well. I am well deep inside. And I will see it, and I see it over and over again, and then I’ll experience it.

Bob: In addition to what you’ve already said about getting sick…

Lindsay: Is there a secret to staying healthy?

Council: Appreciate things every single day, even the littlest thing. Laugh about some memories, or find something fun to do. Raise your energy. Diseases and sickness aren’t in a high vibration. It will not touch you because it’s not in your vibration. You can rise above that.

And the answer to all questions concerning how to improve your life: be grateful for everything, have positive thoughts, and send yourself and others love.

Do Friends Or Family Have Bad Intentions Affecting Our Health?

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

LovePeace: My family is struggling with bad health ever since we moved to Atlanta. We’re continuously getting sick, which is highly unusual for us.

Council: Was this move to Atlanta wanted? Were your thoughts positive and excited about this part of your life that was coming up?

We’d say to everyone that your health is controlled by your thoughts and by your vibration. It’s wise to remember, everything must, must, must start in vibration. There are negative thoughts that lower your vibration. There are positive thoughts that bring your vibration up into a place where you feel good. When you’re in that higher vibration you cannot stay sick. Sickness is in a lower vibration and it feeds the body differently. When you’re in a positive vibration, stay in that vibration as much as you can. How do you stay in it? You find things to be grateful for. You think of all the things that you have accomplished in your life, of things that you’ve gone through and it’s made you feel good.

Concentrate on what you want your life to be like. Imagine it in detail. Do you want to be married? Do you want to move again? Do you want a big family? Do you want a career? What is it? See it. And the more you can see it, you will feel it. When you feel it, it must happen. This is daily work that needs to be done. Change the vibration. When it changes your health must, must, must change.

According to what you’re saying here, everyone isn’t in a great feeling vibration. One person gets sick and another person will be afraid they’ll catch it or they’ll get sick. So now everyone is in this vibration of fear of what’s going on here. Maybe this move wasn’t a good move because we’re all sick. The move is fine. It’s your thoughts that must change. Atlanta will be a wonderful place to live. This is what we want when we’re here. Stay in the positive thoughts. That’s how you change your health. It must start in vibration. How do you get a higher vibration? You do it with your thoughts. You’re in control of this.

There’s no need to fear what’s happening. According to the way everyone’s been thinking, everyone has been getting sick. So now change it. It’s that simple. We say here, it’s not always easy for you in your reality to do it, but it’s a simple answer. Change your thoughts.

LovePeace:  These sicknesses also take a long time to get better.

Council: Ah, and what does that tell you? The thoughts are taking up much of this time. And so, again, change it.

You can feel really sick, and while you’re sitting at home laying in bed, you can control your thoughts. See yourself as feeling better. Oh, I’m walking around. Oh, I don’t need medicine. Oh, I feel relaxed. You can do that while you’re sick. When you see it, when you imagine it and begin to feel it, with this imagery you’ll change what’s going on in your physical reality.

LovePeace: It can affect our work schedule and our kid’s school schedule.

Council: Of course, that’s how it works. Vibration and energy don’t stay in one area of your life. It hits other areas. So if you aren’t feeling well, it can affect how you take care of your children or how you take care of your house. Can you go to work? It’s like a domino effect. It’s important what you think.

LovePeace: I’ve been having some issues with friends and family, as well. I want to check if any of them has the evil eye or bad intentions that are contributing to our bad health.

Council: There’s no evil eye unless you believe in this. There’s only energy, and the energy that you surround yourself with is what’s important. And so there’s only a curse of an evil eye if you believe it. Even if you have the thought: Is it possible? Of course, if you think that, it will be possible, but nothing happens, nothing will touch you when you work with positive thoughts. Surround yourself in beautiful pink light and know that it’s healing and love. That’s what you need.

LovePeace: Please provide guidance on how we can keep healthy and happy.

Council: We believe we’ve done that.

This we can tell you: You can accomplish this. We see, if you choose to do the work, you’ll all be better. And so, now it’s your choice. Do you choose love and positivity, or do you choose fear? It’s only you that will create what happens in your life.

You can also ask The Council your own question by typing it into one of the Comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages.

Have I Met The Person I’ll Marry After My Husband Passed?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Momof3, and is in response to our post, Do I Have A Twin Flame, Not A Soulmate?

Momof3: This topic of twin flames and soulmates has been something that’s intrigued me. I’ve often wondered if my late husband is my twin flame or soulmate. I was inseparable from him, but he passed away. I still feel connected with him spiritually and energetically, and it overwhelms me sometimes.

Council: Of course you’re still connected. Just because someone passes into spirit and one is back in the physical reality, there’s no break in the connection.

And so you want to know if this was your soulmate. We’d say, yes, because this soul and you have chosen each other as mates in this particular lifetime. Any two people that come together are soul mates. You decide to spend this life together, or part of this life together, and work things out together. And so you are mates.

We realize many in the physical world think there’s something wonderful, that they must find the one, the soulmate. Anyone you have a relationship with is a soul that’s mated to you for whatever length of time you decide. And so we’d say, yes, and enjoy that, and enjoy the connection you still have with your husband.

Bob: In a recent post you clarified the difference between the terms, twin flame and soulmate.

Council: Yes. This relationship with her husband was not a twin flame. He was another spirit.

Momof3: I’m sure we had a soul contract or past lives together, or maybe I’m just believing these things to have answers and cope with losing him.

Council: The soul contract you speak of is just an agreement that we’ll go into the physical reality and this is what we plan.

Momof3: But since my husband passed, I’ve met other men and had relationships, and I also feel connected to those men. I guess they’ve all come into my life to teach me something. Are they all my soulmates also, or is there just one?

Council: They are soulmates also. They’ve come in to give you the feeling of love that you feel you’ve lost with your husband passing on. And so it’s just a way to experience love. Different ways are available with different people, and that is all agreed upon.

Momof3: I was told that my late husband wasn’t the one I’d spend my life with and that my true soulmate or twin flame would come after him.

Council: There’s such an emphasis in your reality about this true soulmate. We’ll say again, anyone that you’re in a relationship with is a soulmate. So yes, it’s true you didn’t spend this entire reality with your husband. There will be others. There will be as many as you wish to create. You can get tired of creating many other mates, and then you may create the one that fills your desire for what you want a soulmate to be. And that’s how it works.

Momof3: Of course I never thought that would be true and I’d lose him.

Council: Nothing has been lost. It’s important to remember that. The connection is there and you can still speak to your husband and he’ll speak to you. You only need to be quiet and to believe, and you’ll see the answers.

Momof3: I wonder if I’ve met this person I’d marry now.

Council: We don’t see that yet. And yet if someone comes along and you really want this person to be your forever partner, you can create it that way. It’s so important to remember that you are the creator.

So as you go about your life and the people you pull in to meet, see which one fits perfectly to what you want. And then you’ll create that reality that you’ll be together, and how long you’ll be together.

Momof3: I’ve had a love relationship that recently ended, and I’m trying not to get involved in another one too soon.

Council: It’s all up to you.

Momof3: But I feel like there are connections with people I meet. In particular, there’s a man I’m dating, I’ll call him, J, but I don’t want to make the same mistakes of past relationships.

Council: There’s no rush. Take your time. Enjoy this relationship. See it the way you want it. Focus on the way you want it to be, and that is what you’ll create.

Momof3: I do believe all these friendships and meetings are to teach me something and help me heal, and for me to help J, as well.

Council: It’s to teach you that you are the creator.

Momof3: In helping J, I feel healing, but I feel that I’m searching for my soulmate and I feel incomplete.

Council: That’s because of the belief you have. So now remember that anyone who comes into your life can fit the bill of being your soulmate. And while no one is perfect, whoever comes into your life, there’s always some sort of agreement, I will teach you this, you will teach me that. We’ll go through certain things.

And so, do not expect the perfect soulmate to be a perfect physical human being. That’s not what you’re here for.

Bob: How would you address this feeling that Momof3 has about feeling incomplete?

Council: Because many come into this reality with the belief – and they are here to change this belief – that they are not complete, that you have to have the soulmate to be complete, that you have to have the twin soul to be complete. That isn’t true. You are complete. You are everything that you have ever been in every life. Every answer that you need to every question is within you.

The way to create whatever it is that you want in this life is up to you. You can change it day by day by what you want. And just by focusing on it the life around you will change. It’s all up to you. No one will come along and do it. It’s all up to you.

Bob: So it sounds like you’re saying that the feeling Momof3 has that she’s incomplete comes from a belief that she needs someone outside of herself to complete her. And it sounds like you’re suggesting that’s not true.

Council: Exactly.

Momof3: Then there’s my oldest son. We’re so alike, but we also butt heads a lot. I feel like he hates me and loves me, and it’s a difficult relationship. Is he from my past lives? And does he have to work out things with me from these past lives?

Council: Yes, you know your son from before, but what’s going on now is that you’re here to learn that you have given birth to this soul. You have agreed to bring this soul into this reality. You’ve only agreed to give him entry. You do not control him. You don’t own him. You’re here to watch how he grows, to learn from what he goes through, and to be as understanding as you can.

The way to love him is to let him be himself. Yes, there are times your child will hate you. There are times your child will love you. But when you show love and you allow this child to be whatever he needs to be, and to work on whatever he needs to work on, it will all turn around. And because you show love and acceptance, you’ll receive that same love and acceptance.

Momof3: How can I have a loving relationship with him, or do I just let him be and concentrate on myself?

Council: Of course let him be, but show him love. Show him when you’re disappointed, when you feel maybe his actions are hurtful, but allow him to be. And whenever he does something you don’t approve of, we would end the conversation with the words: I love you, and I’ll allow you to go through whatever you need to go through. Those words will change so much.

Have patience. Just remember you’re not here to control. You’re not here to boss this person around and have things done the way you want. Watch him with curiosity. What is he learning? What is he going through? And what am I learning from it? There’s great growth on both parts when you can look at things this way. And all will be well.

Momof3: Maybe I’m just trying to find answers to feelings and emotions I feel towards men that I can’t explain. Maybe it’s just me being lonely and simply wanting to be loved and to love like it was with my husband. But I feel lost and confused, and I feel like I’m constantly searching for my other half.

Council: You are your other half. What we wish you to do now is to focus on what it is that you want, and know that you can have this.

Momof3: I try to hold back my emotions and feelings because I know I’m vulnerable and just looking to be loved like I was with my husband.

Council: And so your thoughts would be: I am strong. I am a creator. I had a wonderful time with this person that was my husband and I want more of it. And so now I’ll create it. Now I’ll bring someone else in.

You are not lost. You are not a victim. You are now a creator. Think of what we just said, how the feeling is so much different from the way you think about your situation. Come from a place of power and know you can do this.

Momof3: But it’s difficult because I feel when I don’t listen to my heart and emotions, I feel anxious, unbalanced, and overwhelmed.

I’d love to know if I’ve already met the person I was told I’d eventually marry, and who it is, or his name.

Council: You have not finished creating yet.

Momof3: Or if that was something just made up.

Council: We ask you to focus. Do not go so much from what others tell you, but know yourself. We can say over and over again, you are the creator. Picture it. Feel the way you want your life to be. Picture yourself married again and having a wonderful life. See it. Every time you can, see it and feel it, and it has to come to you. But you must take this place of power and understanding of who you really are and make this happen, because you can.

Do We Have To Unite With Our Twin Flame To Spiritually Ascend, Or With Our Multidimensional Self?

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

Bluestar Child: In general, is it necessary to unite with your twin flame to spiritually ascend from the third dimension here on Earth, or is it an attachment of the ego that we need to let go of and actually have to unite with our own multi-dimensional selves?

Council: Exactly, let go of the ego. You don’t need anything or anyone else to move up the ladder and go from one dimension to another, which you’ve already done.

And so it’s the beliefs that you must have a twin soul, you have to have a soulmate. No. You need to create what you want with your thoughts. You need, in your prayers, in your meditations, to always want to connect with that higher part of you that knows what it wants to do, that knows what you wanted to experience in this lifetime. That’s all that’s needed. No one else is needed.

BS: Is there a true twin flame?

Council: When you create a twin flame, you take a part of your spirit and send it out there and create the kind of person you want this twin flame to be in your life. So it’s you (as a spirit) taking on the persona of another person: a man, a woman, an animal, whatever it is. But it is you, and you can create this as many times as you want and in as many realities as you want. The twin flame is you.

It’s like you looking in a mirror and saying, “Let me put on this Halloween costume and let me see what I find with this person that I’m creating. What is it about me that I want to learn? Why do I want to create this twin flame so I can feel comfortable? Why do I want to create this twin flame so that I can have a lot in common, so that I can grow at a pace that feels comfortable, that I’m supported by someone (and that someone is you) to go through this reality and [go through] what I want to experience.”

Bob: Do you differentiate between the terms twin flame and soulmate?

Council: The soulmate is someone that you create because you think this soulmate will be the great love of your life. And it’s another spirit that’s agreed to come into your life and play that part.

But when you create this twin flame, it’s the mirror of you. And so there’s not another spirit that’s involved in that.

Bob: So on the subject of twin flames, if it’s another person, how is there not another spirit involved in that?

Council: A twin flame is you. It’s a part of you that you’ve sent out to come in the form of a person, or an animal, or whatever it is that you need.

A soulmate is another soul that perhaps you’ve been in other lifetimes with, or it can be someone new, but it’s a different soul, a different spirit that said, “Yes, I will come in and be whatever we decide we need to be in this lifetime.”

The twin flame is you creating with you.

Bob: I think I understand. It sounds like you’re saying that in spirit you send a part of yourself and create another person, but it’s your actual spirit in the form of another person.

Council: Exactly.

Bob: And you’re calling them a twin flame.

Council: Yes.

Bob: It doesn’t involve the spirit or soul of another.

Council: Excellent, Bob. Yes, you’ve got it.

Bob: But the soulmate…

Council: …is another spirit.

Bob: Thank you very much for that clarification. I appreciate that.

Council: Good question.


Bob: Now we have a point of clarification that we’d like to ask about in our post where we answered Bluestar Child’s first four out of five questions. It was a post entitled, Do I Have A Twin Flame, Not A Soulmate?

Early in that post Bluestar Child said, “I would like to ask The Council if I have a twin flame, and I don’t mean a soulmate.” And you said, You’re going to try to answer them. This can be difficult to understand.” And we appreciate that you just provided some of that clarification.

Council: Yes, we’ve just given you the simplest explanation.

Bob: Now in that previous post, just after that statement, you said, “We were all created at the same time. There are no new souls.” And then you said, “There are souls that are new by creating your current reality.” And we’d like some clarification on those three statements.

Council: There are no new souls, but we’ll say there are millions, or a nice word that Cynthia likes, cazillions of souls everywhere, in every reality, in every dimension. And so there’s not a new soul being born. What happens is, in your reality when you bring a person in, it’s someone that’s agreeing to be here. It’s not a brand new soul. When you give birth, it’s not a brand new soul. The soul could be thousands of years old. We are all here. We are all doing many, many, many things.

So there’s no need to create a new soul. When you feel you want to create something, there’s nothing brand new. You’ll send out a part of yourself for whatever reason so that to your human mind it seems like a new soul, but it isn’t. There’s no need for anything new. We’re all here forever.

Bob: That’s interesting. So it sounds like you’re saying that on a spiritual level, all souls were created at the same time.

Council: Always was, always will be. And there are no words in your language to explain this. It’s just that we’re vibration and we are energy that goes on forever. There is a change in form perhaps, but we are always there.

Bob: And the change in form doesn’t involve any new souls?

Council: Exactly. And believe this or not, we all know each other, all cazillion trillion millions. We’re all connected. How wonderful is that? That will blow your mind.

Bob: So when you say there are souls that are new by creating your current reality, you’re saying that an old soul can seem new by bringing them into our current reality and experiencing them for the first time.

Council: Exactly. It could be a soul that you’ve never been with before so they would feel new.

Bob: But this soul and all souls were originally created all at the same time.

Council: Exactly.

How Can My Positivity Outweigh Other People’s Negativity?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Council: Yes, it can.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Additional Council material recorded the following day

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Who Is This Older Man I Experienced A Strong Connection With?

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

Cretu: Long ago I experienced a very strong connection with a man 29 years older than me. Nothing happened between us. It was a silent knowing, just by looking into each other’s eyes and smiling at each other – a very pure form of bonding.

Council: It was a recognition with someone you’ve been with in other lifetimes.

Cretu: People around us became immediately aware of this energy and my life started to slowly get intoxicated by cruelty and jealousy to the point that years later I became a recluse. One girl went to a fortune teller and asked them to do something bad to me. I never believed in these things, but my life truly went downhill a few years later.

Council: Apparently you do believe that other people can create something bad in your life because no one can do anything bad to you. Many people say they don’t believe in curses or bad things being sent to them, but on a deeper level they do believe it. And so because of this belief, they start seeing things going downhill in their life.

It’s very important for you to know that you’re in charge of your life. If anything is going downhill, if you’re experiencing many challenges and much unhappiness, you are creating this from your thoughts.

The number one thing would be to meditate that you’re in spirit. You come here to the Earth path and you know that you’re in complete control of your life. Anything you’re experiencing, you’re creating it. When your life is uncomfortable, you’re creating it to see, know, and believe you can change it.

Bob: So when Cretu says that she became intoxicated by cruelty and jealousy, she chose to experience the cruelty and jealousy?

Council: Exactly. It was there and it was Cretu’s choice to let it in, but it was your choice on how you’d let this cruelty and jealousy affect you. Could you laugh at it? Can you let it go? Or will it overwhelm you, bring you sadness, and make you nervous? This cruelty and jealousy were experienced by you so you could see how you chose to experience it.

Bob: Any comments on what Cretu says about years later becoming a recluse?

Council: This was all her choice. This was out of fear and out of believing everything is going wrong.

Cretu: When I was in this man’s presence, I used to vibrate with such joy and love that I never felt anywhere else in the world. Just the thought of him would connect me with the source and my higher self. It was magical, and I could tell that it was reciprocated, even though we never told each other it was magical.

Council: This man came into your life to help you to connect with the source. And when you were connected and you knew that feeling was so wonderful, when this person is no longer in your life, it was your experience that would make you try to connect with source and your higher self without this person, and of course you can do that.

Cretu: I’d like to know who and what this person is to me, and who and what I am to him.

Council: You are spirits that have come together before, you have experienced lifetimes together, you learned well together, and you decided to take another crack at this process this time around.

Cretu: I’ve always wondered if there was a past life connection between us.

Council: You’ve come together in past lives as siblings, mothers, and fathers. You’ve switched roles. You’ve been partners before. For many lifetimes you wished to learn the same things, and so you jump in together in different lifetimes to create what you wanted to experience. It’s a wonderful partnership that comes together every now and then, and you’ve chosen this partnership in your current life.

Bob: Any comments on the 29-year age difference between Cretu and this man?

Council: Not at all. This connection was wanted and it was pre-planned that there would be such an age difference. It would just be when their meeting occurred, a recognition, a comfortable feeling, and being elated in the feeling of love because that’s who we truly are. And working together in past lives it was easy to connect to that emotion of who we really are as love and light when we’d be with that person, or even think of that person. It’s still possible.

Cretu: In two different periods of my life I experienced flashbacks from past lives and there’s one scene that’s haunted me forever – the silhouette of a man with a hat and cloak walking at night, and the same man lying with me on the ground in the street as one of us was dying, and promising to each other that our love would have been stronger than death.

It’s not easy to describe what happens to me when I connect with different times. It literally takes me away from the present, and all my soul and mind. I hope I can find answers through The Council.

Council: It’s very important when you had these images to see them and feel them. You can try and find out more about it, like what happened right before that scene in the street, or what happened after it. That’s an experience to connect with the past.

But we tell you that you are here now to focus on the now. It’s important not to keep going back to that past, or to any past. Take a look here and there, but live your life in your present. That’s what you intended to do – create in this lifetime.

What Is My Mission And Purpose In Life?

This post answers the second installment of questions for The Council from a reader named, P.

P: What is my mission here and my life purpose?

Council: Your mission and purpose are just to be. Find a path you wish to follow, to explore, to learn, to grow, and to meet the challenges you pick. Nothing specific was picked while you were in spirit because you wanted to come here and just have fun and play life along as it goes.

It’s just your wish from spirit to exist in this reality. You wanted to help people. You wanted to learn about spirituality, how you feel about it, and which path you wanted to take in this particular life. You wanted to explore the people you met and let into your life. Spirituality and beliefs are something you dealt with in many of your past lives. You wanted to learn about people, what they believe, and why they believe it. And then you wanted to look at yourself and see what path are you following? What do you believe?

P: Who was I before this lifetime?

Council: Many, many people. In one particular lifetime you truly enjoyed you were in Nazareth during the time of Jesus. You sold cloth, home goods, and rugs in the market and you were interested in following Jesus. You didn’t know whether to believe in him or not, but you did follow him until he ascended from that reality, and this was a great pleasure for you.

You lived many lifetimes by the shore and fished. At another time you had a farm, a wife, and children. You liked growing your own food. With these lives does it ring a bell in your current life? Are you interested in growing food? How it’s prepared? Are you interested in fishing for relaxation? Are you interested in different religions? That was some of what you wanted to follow.

P: How can I personally connect with the loving spiritual realms, the invisible things, spirit guides, angels, etc.

Council: You’re always connected to spirit. In every reality you’re always connected. In your current life, to make it very simple, the best way for you to connect is to be out in nature, sit among the trees, and meditate. And if you don’t like to meditate, just sit quietly and feel the air around you. Listen to the noises around you. You will feel your vibration raising. You will feel a difference in your physical body.

When you decide to believe your vibration is really rising, you’ll hear the voices of guides, and you’ll be able to do automatic writing if you’d like to try that. The best way for you to connect is through meditation, or quietly sitting in the open, whether it be in the forest or on a beach, as long as you have complete quietness. Be very aware of the sounds that go on around you.

In one life you were deaf, and it was always a wish to feel whole by hearing. In your current lifetime what would bring you peace and heal what you wanted to heal from your deaf lifetime was to sit quietly and listen to the sounds. And you can even do this where you live: in your house, outside your house, anywhere. Be aware of the sounds and that will heal what was missing from the lifetime where you were deaf. You’re on the right path.

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.
