Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

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:
