Why Do I Feel So Disconnected From Spirit?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, who says  she’s searched and questioned her connection to spirit for years and is constantly looking for answers about her spirituality.

The Council says you’re always connected to spirit because you are spirit. Kristi needs to do the chakra alignment meditations and she needs to meditate every day going into her heart. That’s where spirit is easiest to find. Create a light in your heart, sit there with it, and you’ll feel a better connection to spirit.

Kristi says she feels she’s coming up short in her answers from spirit. I’ve been to psychics, had past life regression hypnotherapy, and taken mediumship classes, but I feel more disconnected than ever. I feel like all my attempts are futile, which is discouraging.

The Council says they see the path Kristi is on and she’s looking outside herself for her connection to spirit. You have to go within to feel this connection. Take at least 15 minutes a day to meditate on her heart, picturing beautiful green energy all around it. And within this green energy picture a white light the size of a pinhead and focus on this white light expanding until it reaches beyond your body and it’s all around you. When you do this every day you’ll start to feel more calm and you’ll begin to feel your connection to spirit.


Listen to the audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Kristi and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question.

Reaching Self-Realization Through a Third Eye Chakra Meditation

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Seeking Truth, who says during meditation they see their Third Eye opening and the colors Blue, Indigo, and sometimes Yellow. A meditation center that Seeking Truth visits told them it looks like they’re trying to connect with the divine through their Third Eye rather than through the Crown (7th Chakra) and it will be difficult for them to reach self-realization.

The Council says it doesn’t matter which chakra you use during meditation in order to connect with the divine. Many people connect with their higher self, God, or powerful force through the Heart Chakra. The Council feels that as Seeking Truth continues to meditate they will connect with the divine and it becomes more difficult when you place limits on yourself that you have to connect through a specific chakra. You are always connected to the divine. And it’s not commonly known that inside each chakra you can find an additional 7 chakras (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Purple).

You can connect to the divine through prayer, you can connect in your dreams, you can connect by staring at trees and appreciating their beauty, you can connect by staring at the sky or the stars, you can connect by watching animals, or appreciating babies. When you see these and other things and realize that you and it is part of the divine, you are connected to that divinity no matter what way you use to get there.

In addition to the ways The Council already mentioned to connect with the divine they also recommend prayer, and the meditations we’ve posted here for balancing and aligning your chakras. A good way to work on your Crown chakra is to close your eyes, look up to the top of your head, begin to pray for a divine connection, and imagine a beautiful White or Gold light coming into your head from above.

Seeking Truth finishes with a question about better paying job offers they’ve been receiving, but they’re reluctant to accept them because they have a young child and their current job offers them a lot of freedom to be with the child. The Council advises Seeking Truth to stay with their current job for now because the freedom to be with the child that this job offers is needed right now. The Council adds that Seeking Truth will only be paid less for a limited time and it’s good to spend as much time as possible with their child.

Listen to the entire 7-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Seeking Truth and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Meditations to Balance and Align Your Chakras

This post is a follow-up to our previous post which answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Jaden. In the session we did with The Council to answer Jaden’s questions, The Council recommended we provide Jaden with some of their techniques for balancing and aligning his Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra, which are traditionally the top three energy centers within our physical body. In this post we provide techniques for the balancing and alignment of each of the seven chakras, or energy centers, which are located in the body between the groin and the top of the head. Following the text below we’ve included an audio recording of these techniques for readers who desire this. Please let us know if you enjoy working with these techniques.

First Chakra

To balance and align your first chakra, which is located at the base of your spine or groin area, imagine a clear box in front of you. Now imagine filling this clear box with the color red. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the red color out of this box and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the box, and then breathe normally. Imagine the red color leaving the box so the box is clear again, and then imagine the clear box disappearing. Your first chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Second Chakra

To balance and align your second chakra, which is located two inches below your navel along your spine, imagine a clear pyramid, but without its top or cap stone. Now imagine filling this clear pyramid with the color orange. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the orange color out of this pyramid and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the pyramid, and then breathe normally. Imagine the orange color leaving the pyramid so the pyramid is clear again, and then watch the clear pyramid disappear. Your second chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Third Chakra

To balance and align your third chakra, which is located just beneath your breast bone along your spine, imagine a 3D image of a clear plus sign in front of you. Now imagine filling this clear plus sign with the color yellow. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the yellow color out of this plus sign and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the plus sign, and then breathe normally. Imagine the yellow color leaving the plus sign so the plus sign is clear again, and then imagine the clear plus sign disappearing. Your third chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Fourth Chakra

To balance and align your fourth chakra, which is located at the level of your heart along your spine, imagine a clear circle in front of you. Now imagine filling this clear circle with the color green. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the green color out of this circle and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the circle, and then breathe normally. Imagine the green color leaving the circle so that the circle is clear again, and then imagine the clear circle disappearing. Your fourth chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Fifth Chakra

To balance and align your fifth chakra, which is located in the middle of the throat, imagine in front of you a clear chalice or wine glass with a long stem and a cross located in the stem. Now imagine filling this clear chalice with the color sky blue. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the sky blue color out of this chalice and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the chalice, and then breathe normally. Imagine the sky blue color leaving the chalice so the chalice is clear again, and then imagine the clear chalice disappearing. Your fifth chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Sixth Chakra

To balance and align your sixth chakra, which is located between your eyes and slightly above your eyebrows, imagine a clear Star of David in front of you. Now imagine filling this Star of David with the color Indigo or dark blue. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the indigo color out of this Star and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the Star, and then breathe normally. Imagine the indigo color leaving the Star of David so that the Star is clear again, and then imagine the clear Star of David disappearing. Your sixth chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Seventh Chakra

To balance and align your seventh chakra, which is located at the top of the head, imagine a clear lotus flower in front of you. Now imagine filling this lotus flower with the color purple. When you’re ready, with a single breath, breathe the purple color out of this lotus flower and in through your nose, then down to the base of your spine, up to the top of your head, out through your mouth, back into the lotus flower, and then breathe normally. Imagine the purple color leaving the lotus flower so that it’s clear again, and then imagine the clear lotus flower disappearing. Your seventh chakra should now be aligned and balanced.

Closing

Use these techniques whenever you feel sick, tired, drained, or your energy doesn’t feel right. You should not use these techniques daily. As you learn more about each chakra and you feel that one or more of them isn’t properly aligned, you can use the techniques just for the chakra that needs realignment.

As mentioned in the opening paragraph, we’ve included an 8-minute audio recording of these chakra balancing and aligning techniques in the following section.

Question About Past Lives, Mental Issues, and a Future Life

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Jaden, who asks for insight into his past lives, how they’re affecting his current life, and why he chose his current life?

The Council says Jaden agreed to live his current life for the fun of it, to take different lessons and change them for the better, to help the people around him, and to find a way to bring the love from spirit into his current life. Your current life isn’t about past lives. It’s about working with souls you know from other lifetimes to see where you are in relationship to them and to be aware of what you want that they’ve accomplished. They’d be like a teacher to you and open your eyes to things you can create in your life. There are others that will come into your life and you’ll see things you don’t want, and then it’s your choice to pull away from that.

You planned to meet people that would show you a better way to live your life. You wanted to choose spirits, learn where they’re at, and then claim what you wanted for yourself. This whole lifetime you’ll hopefully be meeting people, looking at how they are, what they’ve accomplished, where they are spiritually, determining if their thoughts are positive or negative, and taking what is positive from each person and add it to your life.

In your current life you have a free pass to choose your direction as you move forward. This is a ‘choose as you go’ life. There wasn’t some specific lesson you wanted to learn, change, or heal from a past life. You wanted to move forward and work with spirits that show up. Will you help them? Will they help you? Will they give you ideas about what you want and don’t want?

Jaden asks for suggestions about mental issues he’s going through. The Council says unclear thinking and trust are some mental issues you’re going through. There are emotions that set you off and can bring up a manic or a depressing response. This is from thoughts of lack or abundance you see around you. Find daily things to have gratitude for, even when things don’t go your way, and your mental issues will calm down and you’ll feel better.

The Council says your throat, third eye, and crown chakra need work and they ask Bob to provide their meditation techniques for healing them, which is done in the next post. Healing your throat will help you express yourself better and find creative things that make you happy. Healing your third eye will bring you clarity and help you see and hear things differently. Healing your crown chakra will open you to the energy of your higher self, of your guides, and get you more in touch with your purpose in this lifetime.

Jaden asks The Council for insight into his next life and The Council says that is entirely up to you. At the end of your current life you’ll decide what you want to build into your next life, the spirits you want with you, and the lessons you want to go through. The Council says it’s perfectly proper to think about what you’d like your next lifetime to be like. Nothing is written in stone. You create as you go.

The Council suggests Jaden be in the present, learn from the people around him, and he’ll begin to see things differently. If you stay on the path you’re on, things in your life will begin to change. And you’ll also change the future lives you create for yourself.

Jaden asks The Council where his next life will be because there’s a particular country he has in mind. The Council says at the end of this life when you go back to spirit and you’re ready to create another life, who you are in your current life goes with you back into spirit. All the knowledge, wisdom, and experiences are there and from this knowledge you choose when to go on, how to go on, where to go on, and who to go on with.

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

How Can I Communicate with My Spirit Guides Without Having Spiritual Readings?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Marie, who says she’d like more clarity when she communicates with her guides. For years she’s received information through spiritual readings and now she’s interested in additional ways she can communicate with spirit.

The Council begins by informing Marie she already receives information from her higher self in her dreams, whether she’s conscious of this or not. And they add that in past lives she’s done something called automatic writing and it will be good for her to continue it in this lifetime.

Sit quietly with a pencil and paper and meditate. Let your hand begin to move. At first you may get nothing that makes any sense – a word here or there. Write it down and don’t question it. Eventually you’ll get a few words and then a sentence. As you meditate and let this energy in, you’ll be able to communicate with spirit in this manner. Later when the communication is coming through stronger you can switch to working with a computer if you find this more satisfying.

Marie asks if there’s any difference between communicating with her higher self and communicating with other spirit guides. The Council replies that the higher self is who Marie truly is, and this higher self is connected to everything, but there are many other spiritual guides that she’s also able to connect with. Your higher self knows whatever information you desire and it’s you’re goal in this lifetime to bring this information into your reality.

The easiest way to connect with your higher self is to sit quietly and see what comes through. The Council doesn’t believe Marie will be able at first to stop her mind from distracting chatter, but it will slow down and information will come through a little at a time.  Gradually this information will develop more powerfully. When you wish to reach out to other guides that are around to help you with needed information, you can send your energy out to the universe through your crown chakra on the top of your head.  Ask for guides to come through that have helped you in other lifetimes and are here to help you in this lifetime.

You’ll know the difference between your higher self and other guides that are connecting with you by how it feels. When you connect with your guides you’ll know it comes from beyond who you are in this moment. Getting used to the different feelings about what’s your higher self and what’s another spirit, you’ll learn how to bring these in more and this will help you with the growth on your path.

Listen to the entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Marie and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

How Do I Interpret My Recent Dreams and Enhance My Psychic Gifts?

This post answers questions by a reader who goes by the name, SoulSeekingPeace, who asks The Council to interpret a dream they had where a wolf wants to get into their house, but SoulSeekingPeace is afraid and the wolf runs away. The Council says the wolf represents the teacher, and their higher self has sent this dream to open new doors and to teach them new ways.

A couple days later SoulSeekingPeace had another dream where they heard the words, “Everything is energy.” The Council says this voice and the wolf from their previous dream is to help SoulSeekingPeace become aware of energy by hearing it, feel it, and possibly even tasting it.

Even though SoulSeekingPeace hasn’t mentioned anything in their Comment about hands on healing, which The Council says is there for them if they think they’d like that, The Council suggests they read the book, Hands of Light, by Barbara Brennan. If they read this book it can put them more in touch with how energy works, how they can see and feel it, and this book will help to bring SoulSeekingPeace along their path.

SoulSeekingPeace asks what they should do to get rid of the fear they have of energy and psychic knowledge they feel coming from other lifetimes? The Council says these fears usually means that in a past life you misused these gifts in some way. You regretted this misuse and wish to have another chance in your current lifetime to work with energy and psychic knowledge in a positive way.

The Council advises SoulSeekingPeace to learn as much as they can about the chakras and experience different types of energy healing until you can feel what you’re drawn to. They specifically mention Polarity, Reiki, Reconnection, and Acupuncture as a starting point.

SoulSeekingPeace says they think they’re telepathic and empathic, and The Council says these gifts are definitely there. As you progress along the path The Council recommends, you’ll see how you’re able to pick up other people’s energy, which you’re already able to do to some extent. And you’ll become more psychic with meditation.

They suggest learning the meditation taught by the famous psychic, Edgar Cayce, with the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). It would be good to join the ARE and search their records on energy, healing, and almost any subject you can think of. This is how you can advance in your psychic work in a positive way. This is happening in your life right now because you’re ready to experience this.

Listen to the entire 7-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for SoulSeekingPeace and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Learning About Spirituality, but Has Fears and Doubts

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Lola, who’s been trying to learn about spirituality, but now she’s filled with fears, doubts, and questions that override the feelings of joy and peace she previously felt from learning about spirit.

The Council says the most important thing for Lola is to learn about herself. They advise her to meditate on the fact that she is spirit. As spirit you volunteer to come into this lifetime and work through different lessons and experiences to help yourself grow and to help others grow.

We all have our work that we come here to do. Everything you come here to do is decided on before you come into your current lifetime. You bring spirits with you that you’ve been with before. They come into your life to help you, or to make your life harder so you learn and grow. There’s nothing fearful in that.

Lola pre-planned in spirit before coming into this lifetime to experience these fears, doubts, and questions so she’d be able to work through them. The #1 purpose of every spirit is to come into a lifetime and bring love into whatever you’re creating. So if you’ve come into this lifetime with obstacles, you’ve asked for these obstacles so you can find your way through them and bring love into them. Take the fear you experience and turn it into love.

In every situation there are only two choices: fear and love. In which direction do you want to go? As you focus on love, you’ll find more experiences coming your way that will show you more love, show you happiness and kindness, and help you open up to who you are as a spiritual being. If you focus on your fears, you’ll bring more of these fearful experiences into your life and have to work through them to change your beliefs and what you’re experiencing around these fears.

We’re all coming from one source of energy, which is love. Each time you come into this reality you create another part of who you are as a spiritual being. When you return to spirit, everything you’ve gone through, the good and the bad, you take back with you and everyone in spirit learns and grows from your experience. We’re all one, and yet there’s the individual part of you, and that part changes and grows with each incarnation you have.

Lola says there’s a feeling we can’t escape from our creation of bad experiences. The Council says you can always escape from experiences by what you focus on. The more you focus on bad experiences, the more you’ll bring them to you. You need to begin to understand you’re a powerful spirit. You’re here to change things for the better. You are the complete creator of everything that goes on in your reality. No one else can create for you.

When you learn the most powerful tool you have is choice, and you think everything is scaring you and you don’t know what to do, what if you just try to see your situation differently? What if you try to feel happier and calmer? Beginning to do this will show you what you can change. There’s a positive aspect to your fears.

Know that you chose to experience these fears so you can change them and grow from them. You’re the creator. How can you change the things that are frightening you? Use your imagination and see things turning out better. See yourself safe. See yourself smiling and happy. If you can hold onto these images and feel what you’re imagining, you’ll see your life change. That is what you came into this lifetime to do.

In a past life in ancient Egypt you were one of the priests that taught children about energy, how you control your thoughts, and how you create your future. As a loving teacher you couldn’t understand why some of the children weren’t able to easily understand what you were teaching because it was so simple for you. So in your current lifetime you wanted to experience what these slower children were going through. You chose to make things harder for yourself by not knowing how to turn obstacles around into love with your mind. As you try these things again it will come to you easily because it’s something you’ll remember from this past life.

Lola asks if we’re able to experience evil so deeply that we forget our true nature as spiritual beings? The Council says, yes, if you focus on evil. Thinking thoughts like, evil cannot touch me, evil is an illusion, everything is from the light, I am safe, and I am love can be beneficial.

The Council advises Lola to learn about the chakras, their colors, their energy, and what they do. Surround yourself in white light when you wake up and before you go to sleep.

There isn’t good energy and bad energy. There’s only energy. What you do with this energy, how you think about it, what you want to create with this energy makes it good or bad. What do you want to do with energy? You’re here to learn how to change your thought, your situations, your experiences around you with your mind.

Lola says she can’t picture herself free of fear in the future, even if she’s surrounded by loving people. How can she overcome her fears and doubts if she doesn’t understand everything fully?

The Council says when you have these fears and negative thoughts, be still and acknowledge that you’re having these fears and thoughts and then ask yourself how you can turn them around and reach for the light within you. Look for a pinhead of light in your heart and concentrate on that light growing until it comes out of your chest and puts you in a capsule of loving energy. If you’re working to find this light within you, you won’t have time to focus on doubt and negativity.

Lola closes by saying she feels like she’s deviated too far from her soul purpose and The Council says this will never happen. You’ll find a way through these obstacles, whether it’s the easy way or some illusion that you create. And if you feel you haven’t succeeded, you’ll come back to another reality and try to find your way through these obstacles again.

You’re here to understand how you create with your mind and your feelings, and how you can change anything to be beautiful, to have loving energy, and to help you grow. That’s your purpose. You’ll never stray from this purpose. Whatever obstacle you create, it’s just you trying to push you to learn how to work through this obstacle.

Listen to the audio recording of our 18-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Lola and the rest of us. This is a longer session, but we feel the time is worth it, and let us know what you feel about this session.

Asking for Guidance to Remove Marks on Their Face

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, LookingForAdvice, who’d like to know about the marks on their face that have been increasing lately. LookingForAdvice has been to a doctor who says there’s no medicine to reduce these marks, and they ask The Council if there’s any product that might help them with this and make sure they don’t come back as often. LookingForAdvice says they’re a big believer that all body-related issues are trying to tell us something, but in this particular case they don’t understand the issue.

The Council says this particular problem is an emotional one for LookingForAdvice and it will take a lot of inner work on their part to reduce these facial marks. Your body is trying to get you to look at yourself. You’ve created these marks because on some level you’ve learned not to like yourself.

Meditate and begin to appreciate yourself and what you’ve accomplished. When you can do this, your face will become free of these marks.  Identify with who you truly are as a spiritual being and discover what is going on in your life. Are there people around you that hold you back? Are there people that irritate or upset you and you’re not dealing with this? This can create symptoms that show as marks on your face. You may think you love yourself, but go deeper.

In the meantime, learn about the fifth, sixth, and seventh chakras. These chakras control the energy to your face. If you learn how to work the energy in these chakras you’ll see improvement.

And you can help yourself with the Edgar Cayce pack, which is flannel or pure cotton and castor oil. Soak the flannel or cotton in the castor oil and place it on the marks on your face. Castor oil is known to heal the cells of the body on a deep spiritual level and remind the cells they are part of God, spirit, and love. While you work on your emotions and begin to love yourself more, you can also work with castor oil and with the fifth through seventh chakras.

Always begin by looking in the present for ways to love yourself more, but also look back at your life. Was there a sibling who was appreciated more than you? Do you feel like you haven’t done enough with your life? Do you feel you aren’t pretty or handsome enough or you aren’t intelligent enough? These marks are on your face and your face is how you show yourself to the world. Look at your emotions around this to learn how to heal these marks.

Listen to the entire 7-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for LookingForAdvice and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

How Can I Develop My Psychic Sense?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, LearningSoulSite, who says she was advised in an earlier session with The Council that her soul would like her to develop psychic abilities and she’s not sure what will be a good starting point. She asks how she’ll understand her psychic gifts and how she should develop them. And finally she asks if there’s anything she should be careful about or protect herself from while working on her psychic sense.

The Council starts by saying that before LearningSoulSite begins developing her psychic ability she should protect herself from her own thoughts and beliefs. Because if you believe there’s something out there that’ll grab you when you meditate and you’re not protected, somehow you’ll create this. And if you believe there’s evil lurking about that you need to be protected from, you’ll create this.

The Council advises LearningSoulSite to work on who she truly is, which is love and light. That is what everything is made of. Within this realm of love, light, and pure energy she can begin to allow herself to connect with the spirit world, and with past lives and future lives. It’s important to know she’s in control of everything that happens and her beliefs will play a part in this.

The Council suggests meditation is the best way to start developing your psychic abilities, even if you sit quietly for 5-10 minutes a day.

But if you want to connect with spirit, a simple way to do this is by concentrating on beauty. When you eat, imagine what you’re eating is filled with love and light and ask yourself how it feels going into your body. When you’re around animals, look for their souls. When you’re in the garden, look with beauty and love at the flowers and connect with the belief you’re one with these flowers.

As you begin to connect with everything you’ve created in your reality, you now begin to open chakras you’ve never worked with before. Know there’s so much more within you and around you. As you accept this belief and it becomes true to you, you’ll automatically open to different energies and different visions. You’ll hear things you can’t hear right now.

Most of this lifetime there’s been a lot of confusion. So when you meditate, concentrate on the third eye center to receive the clarity you’re looking to experience. With this clarity you’ll find it’ll become easier to make decisions. You’ll have a better understanding of the people around you. This is what you wanted to accomplish in your current lifetime. And when you receive this clarity and understanding, you’ll find people will begin speaking to you about what’s going on in their lives, and you’ll know how to help these people.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for LearningSoulSite and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What’s the Purpose of Chronic Pain?

The post answers a question for The Council about the purpose of chronic pain from a reader who goes by the name, InDespair. InDespair says they’ve suffered from cervical stenosis and fibromyalgia for about 10 years. They’ve been on the same medication for years, which they’ve now built up a tolerance to, and they’re in terrible pain every day. InDespair says they’re reluctant to speak to their doctor about the pain because they’re afraid the doctor will think they’re abusing their medication.

The Council asks why InDespair refuses to help them self by talking to their doctor. The pain is here as a lesson, but InDespair needs relief from medication before they can learn the lesson the pain is trying to teach. Fear is the reason they aren’t asking for this help. Reach out to your physician and explain your situation. When you receive medication that eases the pain, then you’ll be able to ask what lessons the pain has to teach you.

The reason for pain is that you aren’t allowing your life force to flow through you. When your life force isn’t allowed to flow freely through your body, pain is caused wherever you resist the life force. Focus on the areas of pain, acknowledge the pain, and know that it’s part of your current circumstances. You’ve brought this pain in to change your beliefs.

You create this pain to stop you from your every day living so you give this pain the time it needs to be experienced and to learn from it.

Find somewhere in your body where you aren’t experiencing pain, where there’s a feeling of wellness. Imagine this feeling of wellness spreading to the area where there’s pain and watch as this feeling of wellness grows throughout the body. As you believe you don’t need to experience pain, punishment, and guilt, your life force will flow throughout your body.

You bring pain into your life to change your beliefs and you grow spiritually as you begin to recognize you’re light, love, and joy. The Council asks you to take time every day and find parts of your body that feel well.

InDespair says they’ve never abused their medication, but for some reason they worry their doctor will assume the worst. The Council says to tune in to who you truly are as a spiritual being. You deserve your doctor’s help and you should ask for it. Don’t assume you’ll be labeled unkindly.

InDespair asks, “Why in the world would we choose chronic pain as a lesson, and how can I get past my fears?” The Council says we choose chronic pain to heal beliefs from past lives that we bring into this lifetime. We choose chronic pain for the purpose of changing these beliefs so we can grow from them. The pain will subside as you focus on the areas of well-being to help yourself.

One of the areas of pain is your neck, which is the back of your throat. Is there something you’re avoiding talking about? Do you keep opinions to yourself? Are you afraid to speak your truth? This will affect the throat chakra, which includes the back of the neck. Or have you said unkind things to people? This also will affect the neck area. Work on the neck chakra and all your chakras to get the energy flowing and allow your life force to move through you. If you do this you’ll begin to see a lessening of the pain.

The Council closes by stressing the importance of speaking with your physician about new medication. They also emphasize learning about the chakras and finding places in your body that feel well and doing visualizations that bring this well-being to the parts that hurt. Know you are an eternal spiritual being in your physical body. When you can do these things you’ll begin to experience relief.

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

What if My Interest in Spirit as a Distraction from “Reality”

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Malia, who says her navel chakra feels weak, my will feels blocked, and I’m overly enmeshed with my family.

The Council says the reason for Malia’s blocked third or navel chakra is in many prior lives she had to do what she was told in her families. She had no say in what direction her life went. In her current lifetime it’s Malia’s intention to heal this situation. She wants to feel independent and make her own decisions.

The Council says Malia has created a situation where she’s enmeshed with her family and now she needs to figure out what’s going on in her day to day life rather than focusing so much on her navel chakra. Is there a way she’s able to handle her circumstances differently? Is she able to make protective boundaries so she doesn’t feel herself getting pulled into everyone’s world? The Council says the reason Malia’s having this experience right now is so she can learn from it and change it.

The Council says the reason Malia’s enmeshed with her family is her day to day choices. Her greatest power in the current lifetime she’s creating is her minute to minute decisions. Why does she allow herself to be pulled in to her family’s drama? Why does she create these experiences? By looking at her circumstances she’ll be able to find new ways to deal with them. She’s created these situations to learn independence, to speak for herself, make decisions, and make boundaries. Boundaries is a big lesson for her in this lifetime.

Malia says she feels insecure about her capacity to be independent. The Council says she has the capacity, the power, and the strength to be independent. That is what she’s chosen to learn in this lifetime. She’s created situations where she does’t feel independent so she can learn to overcome them.

Malia says she’s afraid she’s using her interest in spirit as a scapegoat rather than working on the reality she’s manifesting. The Council says spirit isn’t Malia’s scapegoat. As she meditates or intuitively pays attention to feelings and ideas that come to her, that is her higher self helping handle her challenges. This isn’t using spirit as a scapegoat. This is learning from her higher self.

Bob suggests Malia may mean she’s using her interest in spirit to keep from focusing on day to day choices The Council asked her to focus on. The Council says when you realize who you truly are as a spirit in a physical body, that is the most important thing. Your day to day choices becomes clearer when you understand this.

Bob asks The Council if they can think of a reason why Malia might be having this fear of working on her reality and having spirit as a scapegoat? The Council says the desire to stand up to people, be independent, face confrontation, and learn to say no are with Malia from other lifetimes. Rather than face these situations on a day to day basis she can believe that concentrating on spirit doesn’t allow her to change the experiences she’s having.

Intuitively Malia knows she has to face these challenges because this is what she’s created them for. The part of her that’s afraid to face these challenges will concentrate on what she thinks of as spirit and takes her away from what she has to do to have a different experience.

The Council recommends daily meditation, even if it’s only five minutes, and coming up with affirmations that remind her who she truly is as a spirit in a physical body. Read about spirit and the reason we’re here on Earth. As she feels more in tune with who she is, she’ll be able to handle her day to day experiences. Family and other relationships will become clearer.

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

How Can I Describe Kundalini Energy to Family & Friends

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Mariner2Mother, who’s experiencing a Kundalini awakening and would like help explaining the process to family and friends who don’t understand it.

The Council says Kundalini is a raising of energy in each chakra (or energy center in the body). It sits in the first chakra (or root chakra in the groin area) and through meditation, prayer, reading, and sometimes through no conscious effort on the part of the practitioner, slowly rises through each of the seven chakras along the spine.

Inside each chakra there are seven more chakras that correspond to the seven chakras in the body. The Council describes it as an awakening. It can take years for this energy to rise to the upper most chakra. This energy can heal fears, illness, and anything that keeps you from experiencing who you truly are. It helps you think differently and see things differently.

The Council says many people experience this rise of Kundalini energy and never know it. They just begin to feel better and have better thoughts because they are opening to energies that aren’t available when you’re worried, depressed, or your energy is heavy.

Many people say it’s a horrible experience to have your Kundalini open, and The Council says if you believe this, that is what you’ll experience.

The Council advises controlling Kundalini energy with your thoughts, know that it’s there, and if you’re interested in raising this energy you can do this slowly so that your body and your mind can handle it.

It’s a raising and expanding of energy so you can have deeper experiences while still in your human body.

Mariner2Mother says her Kundalini energy opened up in her somewhat spontaneously, but The Council says this isn’t the case. It’s happening because her higher self (spirit) is choosing to have this experience.

The Council says the simplest way to explain Kundalini is to describe the seven chakras and what each one does, and how you are learning there are seven more chakras inside each chakra. From deep inside you this energy slowly works it’s way up from one chakra to the next. The chakras gradually open and send out a much higher vibration and energy that you’re able to tap into.

The Council says raising your Kundalini is a normal process that can be very beautiful, and there’s nothing to be afraid of.

Mariner2Mother can pray on each chakra, learn the colors of each chakra, and meditate on the seven different chakra colors within each chakra; these seven chakras are the size of a pin head.

In response to Mariner2Mother describing her Kundalini process as challenging for her, The Council suggests asking her spirit (or higher self) to slow down this process so it’s not so exhausting. When she describes much of her experience as “Hell on Earth”, The Council says this experience of Hell on Earth isn’t necessary.

The Council finishes with guidance to send love to every chakra.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Mariner2Mother and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Opening to the Love All Around

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who asks The Council how they can give and receive love. PE says they are very closed and there’s a lot of grief in their heart.

The Council says they see the grief in PE’s heart and they recommend working on the heart chakra by sitting a few moments twice each day and picturing a little flame in the heart area. Picture this flame getting bigger and bigger and eventually tuning in to what this increasingly larger flame feels like. This will begin to open your heart.

PE says they struggle with being warm and open with people and this makes them feel lonely and friendless. The Council says PE has abandonment and trust issues and there was a lot of hurt, grief, and sadness from past experiences and past lives. In this lifetime they made a decision to turn these emotions around and feel love and trust again, but it is difficult to do this quickly when you have gone through as much as PE has.

The Council says if PE is uncomfortable giving and receiving love and trusting people, then buy a beautiful plant to take care of. Play music for this plant, water it, sing to it. Show kindness and love to this plant. After you’ve done this for a while perhaps you can have a favorite tree that you can visit every day. Sit with this tree, talk to it, feel the energy the tree gives back to you. Then you can get an animal to express love to. Slowly you’ll begin to trust and let the energy of love in.

PE has heard there are guides and angels around us, but she doesn’t feel their presence and says they don’t know how to connect to it. The Council says PE would connect by doing the exercise with the light in the heart. As you show love to anything – the plant, the tree, the animal – you open your heart and you will begin to feel this connection.

PE says there’s a deep and painful emptiness in their heart, but they really want some kind of connection with other people. PE adds that sometimes they cry for no apparent reason because of so much sadness in their heart that they are unable to explain.

The Council says just by asking this question, PE is in the part of their path where they’ve discovered what they want – the connection with other people and the healing of their heart – so they are exactly where they need to be. And if they follow the steps The Council has suggested, their life will begin to change.

The Council says the vibration you carry attracts people that are a match to that vibration. With a heavy heart, and grief, and sadness, and not trusting, it’s more difficult to bring in the more trusting and gentle souls. As PE does this daily meditation on the heart, they will begin to accept love from the people that want to show it to them, and they will attract more of the kind, loving people they need to help them along their path.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us, and let us know your feelings.

Moving Past Struggles Over an Abortion

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who struggles to forgive herself for having an abortion. She sees this as an opportunity for spiritual growth, but she gets stuck and asks The Council how she can move past the regrets she experiences. She believes healing will come if she’s able to have another child, but she’s worried her negativity from her abortion is preventing her from getting pregnant. Anonymous asks The Council if there’s anything she needs to do before she’s able to conceive again.

The Council sees that Anonymous carries guilt with her about her abortion and they remind her and all women who experience a terminated pregnancy there’s no need for this guilt. All pregnancies are pre-planned in spirit. She and the soul of this child wanted to experience this. The Council says if she were in school she’d received an A+ for following this challenge she and the child picked to experience and she’s promoted to the next level. They add that the next level is for feeling love for herself and being proud of what she’s done, and proud for the soul of this child that she allowed it to experience what it wanted.

The Council sees Anonymous’s desire for another child and they remind her of the difficulty creating what she desires when her vibration isn’t in one of joy. They suggest thinking positively and changing how she thinks about her abortion: get to a place where she can see she created the abortion and if it’s her desire, she doesn’t need to experience it again.

Moving forward The Council suggests Anonymous do whatever she can to get to a joyful place. She can do this by finding memories that make her laugh or watching movies that make her laugh and raise her vibration. Begin to think of a new child and the life she can offer it.

The Council asks Anonymous to practice a meditation that concentrates on her heart center. At first see a tiny light within her heart. And as she experiences more joy this light will grow. This is the light of her creation. As this light becomes brighter and brighter it opens the door to whatever she desires.

The Council recommends that in this light Anonymous bring what she wishes to create into her mind and into her feelings. Feel the love and then she’ll be able to move forward and have another child if that’s her desire. Her purpose now is to work on her heart chakra and make the light and the feeling within it grow.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Ashley’s Purpose in This Lifetime

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Ashley, who asks The Council about her past and present lives, her abortion, her current boyfriend, and chakras, in addition to several other questions and a bit of background in 3 separate Comments posts, but The Council decides to talk about her purpose in this lifetime.

The Council sees Ashley has looked for many teachers and experimented with many paths, and they say this is precisely what she planned to do. They notice she’s feeling frustrated with everything she’s learned and this is because the answers are within her. The Council says Ashley is to now turn inward and realize she is the light, the love, the intelligence, and the spiritual being she’s searching for.

The Council says that while meditation is always a good way to look inward, they feel in Ashley’s case she should also read about near death experiences and past lives to hear stories of people who have passed on and come back to show there’s more going on than what takes place in this physical lifetime. They say this will help Ashley believe more in herself and begin to trust in her abilities.

The Council says being open to all these other beliefs and paths was good experience for Ashley, but it wasn’t enough and now she needs to turn inward and find out more about herself and the spirit world. And this will help her tune into a finer vibration of the love that’s felt in spirit, and will bring her joy.

The Council says Ashley was meant to be an example of a more positive and hopeful person, and as she discovers this for herself she’ll also be able to do this for her partner and the people around her. She is doing exactly what she planned and experiencing everything she wanted to experience. Now her questions about spirituality will lead her to a better understanding of herself.

The Counsel says all abortions are an agreement between the mother, the father, and the spirit of the child who is aborted.

Ashley mentions learning more about chakras and The Council says chakras are energy that helps you create your life experience with your thoughts and beliefs. If she feels this subject holds something for her, The Council suggests Ashley study this. And how she thinks about chakras will determine how it affects her life.

The Council says if there isn’t much interest in chakras, or she’s ready to go beyond these beliefs, they ask Ashley to continually find time to sit in the energy of white light and bring it into and around her body, in her surroundings, and just begin to feel it. It is always there. Stay positive and bring yourself to the vibration of happiness and joy, which is who you are as spirit.

Ordinarily we  end our sessions with an exchange blessings, but in this case The Council adds that spirit wants everyone in our human reality to know they are sending us their support. And they are thinking how courageous many of us are to go through what we experience, and how many of us are saying we’re finally turning our lives around. And they say as spirit sends more and more energy, more people are open to receiving this energy.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Ashley and the rest of us. And let us know your thoughts.

Meditation for Heart Chakra and First Chakra

This post is the second part of a response to a request from Robyn for The Council’s support and guidance to:

  • Get past feeling it’s not safe to be herself
  • Stop believing she will be rejected if she expresses her true feelings
  • Start speaking and living her truth

In our first post on Robyn’s questions, we included a transcript of an 18 minute message of guidance from The Council. Part of this message was a suggestion to meditate 10-20 minutes a day to help Robyn connect with the pure spirit she truly is within her physical body.

Later in this session The Council provided step-by-step instructions for a meditation to energize the heart chakra and the First chakra, which they said would improve Robyn’s ability to use her thoughts to create the change she wants in her life. The Council pointed out this meditation can benefit all, not just Robyn. Here are the steps of the heart chakra – first chakra meditation:
