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.

How Can I Help My Children?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, StrugglingMom, after she read our post, Is My Life Purpose to Save My Husband from Himself? StrugglingMom says, this post sparked a question about whether my purpose is to help my children, especially my oldest son, and to ask how I can do that.

The Council says your life purpose is all about you, not about saving other people. When you agreed to have these spirits come into this world through you, you agreed to allow them to come in to create the kind of reality they want. They already have in mind the lessons they want to learn, the challenges they want to work through, and if they want to be of help to other people. This is all set up within that spirit. Your purpose is to allow these spirits to come in and then let go and watch what they’re creating.

If there’s a way you can guide them to make their way a little easier, this is helpful, but your purpose isn’t to save your children from whatever they go through or to change whatever you think they’re going through. Your purpose is to give your children love and support in the gentlest way you know.

StrugglingMom asks, do my children and I share any past lives or lessons to learn because we have a difficult relationship and I’m struggling to be the mother my children need. The Council says one of the lessons here is about abandonment, which is what you and your oldest son experienced in another lifetime. In your current life you agreed to be together and work with each other through the difficult times you’re experiencing and not to abandon each other.

Look at what your oldest son is going through and find a way to have discussions with him. Give him guidance on how you think there might be an easier way to go through what he’s experiencing. Discuss what you think and the challenges you’ve gone through and how you worked through these challenges. It’s by your example and by teaching your son what you did to get through your experiences that give him a basis for how to work through his own stuff.

A lot of these children that are difficult and don’t follow rules are very advanced and want to grow up and make their own rules and change things. And they want to do this quickly. Sometimes these children are called Indigo Children because they know they have lots to do in their future, but they’re confused right now with the challenge of growing up under their parent’s rules.

You don’t need to let your son do whatever he wants if you believe it’s unsafe or mean. You can explain another way he can accomplish what he wants. The more discussion you have with your son, the better it will be. Discussion can help things turn around quickly. And by discussion we mean talking about each other and to each other, but not in a way your son is likely to experience as nagging.

Your purpose with your son is to listen to him, be supportive, and not get to the point where you’re so upset you do nothing and conversation stops. This is a form of abandonment. Your son wanted to learn how to be himself, whatever he chose to be in this life. No matter how he chose to be, you would be allowing and accepting, guiding him gently another way, not through punishment or abandonment, but through listening and relating back and forth.

The Council says StrugglingMom and her oldest son shared a past life together as brothers who had no family and they both felt abandoned. In his current lifetime your son wants to work through his abandonment issues and he wanted to have parents that were there to guide him.

StrugglingMom says, I don’t know whether to push him or just let him fail when he refuses to go to school or do schoolwork. Do I punish him and force control? Or do I just let him be, which makes me feel guilty because I feel like I’m taking the easy way out and not being his mother?

The Council says StrugglingMom’s guilt serves no purpose. As a parent you realize there are school requirements that need to be met. As your son moves through school even though he’s not interested in it, discuss with him why it must be done. When he goes to school or does his schoolwork you should praise him and this will give him more motivation to continue.

If your son’s path is difficult because this is what he’s creating, and if he fails and you know in good conscience that you’ve tried to put him on a path you feel has advantages, then his wanting to fail is part of what his spirit wants to experience. Your role is to do what you can as a parent to explain how your son’s education is something he needs to do to improve himself for when he grows up. If you can do this then you’re not abandoning him. If you throw your hands up and say I give up, and your son fails, your son will experience abandonment again. What your son hopes for, no matter what, is you don’t abandon him.

You can help your son heal his abandonment issues through patience and communication, and talking about yourself and what you’ve gone through. Talk about how it’s difficult to see your son not trying. And talking about how you’ll be there no matter what road he picks, whether he tries or whether he fails This will help.

Once your son understands you’re there for him no matter whether he succeeds or fails, instead of having to continue going through the lesson of abandonment, that lesson will be changed because you’re letting your son be the way he needs to be. In accepting and allowing your son, you also allow his lessons to change and allow him to heal.

By StrugglingMom agreeing to be part of these abandonment issues, if her son fails, how will this affect her? What does that bring up for her? There are also abandonment issues StugglingMom wants to learn about. StrugglingMom and her oldest son are handling abandonment in different ways. It’s like different ends of the same stick. The son at one end doesn’t want to be abandoned even though it’s a difficult situation. He wants to see what his mother will do.

On the other side of the stick is StrugglingMom. She doesn’t want to throw her hands up and give up, but at times she feels like it’s no use. Does she give up? Does she abandon her son? Both are facing issues of abandonment and they’re trying to help each other through these issues.

The Council says one of the hardest parts of being a parent is to allow these spirits to come in and then feel responsible for how their child creates its life. You are supposed to bring the child in and then allow it to be whatever it needs to be, and to be there for your child as they go through whatever issues they’re trying to work through.

Why Has the Man in My Life Become So Distant?

This post answers questions from a reader named, Confused Aquarius, who says the man in her life has become distant and he’s not the same man anymore.

The Council says it’s not this man’s intention to hurt you. There are other issues he needs to go through. One of the issues affecting him from past lives that he’s trying to work out is the issue of commitment. There’s a fear of commitment because of what he’s experienced in other lifetimes. He wants closeness and finds it, but fear enters into it and there’s a pulling away. His pulling away isn’t about you or something you’ve done to cause this. You volunteered in spirit to come into this lifetime and help this man learn about his fear of commitment.

Confused Aquarius says this man has gone from one extreme to another and he’s left me so confused. The Council advises Confused Aquarius to forget the confusion. You’ve entered into a relationship with this man to help him grow and to figure out what you’ve learned. What was the relationship like? What parts of it do you want to continue? What parts of this relationship do you not want to create again? You are both helping each other to grow.

Confused Aquarius says, just when my walls came down, he’s changed. He says he has a lot going on, but I can’t help but feel shut out of his life. He’s very intuitive and I feel he was drawn to me because we shared a past life. The Council says he was drawn to you because of a very strong agreement that you made in spirit. He wanted to face this challenge, learn from it, and not have to experience it again. And this makes the attraction between the two of you possible.

Confused Aquarius asks if there’s anything The Council can tell her about the past lives she’s shared with this man so she can better understand their meeting in the current life. She’s very confused why he entered her life in the first place. The Council says the challenges this man is facing, including the big one about commitment, weren’t created in another lifetime that you shared, but it’s something he’s experienced in many lifetimes. Because you know of each other from past lives, you agreed to help him, and you also agreed you would learn from this relationship.

The Council says it was planned that Confused Aquarius and this man would ultimately overcome these commitment challenges, but everyday life gets in the way. They say we’ll see what they create and where they take this relationship.

Why Did I Have a Loving Childhood and Now I’m Surrounded By Difficult Men?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Serenity, who says she’s a kind woman who comes from a wonderful family and grew up with minimal problems and nothing but love. When I got married we were happy at first, but as the years went by we grew apart and now have nothing in common.

The Council says they don’t see Serenity’s situation the same as she does. You have much in common with your husband and much more to accomplish with him. The feeling of drifting apart is caused by not connecting on a deeper level about moving forward. This relationship isn’t over.

Feeling you’re not connected with your husband allows you space to bring other souls into your life if that’s what you planned. It’s an opportunity to face life’s challenges and happy moments and have experience with another spirit.

Serenity says, we’re married 35 years. Several years ago I rekindled communication with my first love who had become a severe alcoholic and I’m helping him slowly get better.

The Council asks how you’re helping this man. Are you supporting the process of healing himself? You won’t heal anyone. The decision to heal is up to that spirit and it’s your place to accept what they’re going through. Whether he heals and becomes sober or stays with the alcoholism, your purpose is to be a watcher, a supporter, and allow him to be who he is. This is what you planned in spirit.

Serenity says, although my original feelings have changed, I still love both men in different ways. The Council says your feelings haven’t changed, they’re just refocused at the moment.

Serenity says, I’m confused about my purpose in life and why, after being brought up in such a loving environment, I seem to be surrounded by extremely difficult men.

The Council says this gives you a foundation for what you want to create going forward. If you were brought up in a loving environment, did you plan to face challenges and learn from them, and then change these challenges into a loving reality? The loving beginning of your life gave you something so when you get in other relationships, can you create a loving atmosphere. See if you can have a partner that’s also loving to help you find that loving feeling. It’s to learn what you’re currently going through isn’t what you want, but you’ll experience it and this will help you know what to create going forward?

Serenity says, all I ever wanted in life was a simple, intelligent, honest man to love me, have common interests, travel, and enjoy a beautiful life together. I’d like to know my purpose in life and why this has been so difficult to achieve in this incarnation.

The Council sees you wished to have the beautiful and perfect relationship that you have when you’re in spirit. You wanted to experience this in your current lifetime. You can still have this by focusing on what you want. How much of it do you have with this man you’re helping with alcoholism? How much of this experience do you have with your husband? Then refocus your thoughts and concentrate solely on the fact that you’ve had loving relationships in your youth and you need to create it again with these two men in your life.

When you feel this love around you, then you can make a choice to be with one of these men or keep both of them in your life. You came into this lifetime to have love at the beginning of your life and then have challenges. We are here to bring love into every challenge we have, no matter what that challenge is.

As you focus your thoughts and bring in better thoughts, the people around you will feel the change and it will help them move through their challenges and grow. You’ll be a beacon of light and help them through whatever it is they wish to learn.

The Council thanks Cynthia and Bob for bringing in this information to all the souls who need to know there’s more to life than the human condition you’re experiencing, to hear our words, and to connect with their higher selves. This way each one of us, if we grow even an inch, we bring everyone else on this planet with us.

What About My Relationship With A Woman I Met On Instagram?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Harmony, who says they just met a girl on Instagram a few days ago. I only sent her a few messages, but I felt love for her.

The Council says this is a recognition, but it’s also your heart that’s searching for someone to love. Connecting with this woman is making you wonder if this is the person for me? Will this bring love? And we say, yes, it has already because you feel the connection.

Harmony says, I just met her and we haven’t really spoken, but I haven’t felt this feeling for someone special for a very long time. I’m grateful for these feelings, but I’m curious why I’m having them when we just met?

The Council says it’s similar to when two people went to school together in first grade and now you’re in college and you’ve found each other again and you recognize each other. That’s what brings this loving feeling. When you recognize each other, what automatically comes up is the question, now what do we do? What direction do we go in? Just relax and feel this familiar feeling. If you bring out feelings of love, warmth, and connection, then enjoy that for right now because that’s what this is.

Harmony asks if she knew this woman in past lives. The Council sees a life as Native Americans who were able to connect with nature and get information intuitively from the spirits of trees, water, and mountains. That’s why you have an intuitive recognition of a connection with this woman. It’s a recognition you brought from another time into your current reality.

Harmony asks if this is a romantic relationship I should pursue? The Council says, yes, there’s a possibility of a romance and it’s the way you wish to create it. Work on your relationship with this woman and do the inner work of thinking about how you want it to be and create from there.

Harmony changes the direction of her questions here and asks, what is my life purpose? The Council says it’s the same as everyone else. Your purpose was to come here and bring as much love as you could from the spirit world into this world. You wanted to run around, have fun and experiences, and enjoy the good times. The challenges you create, you created them so you could change them.

There isn’t any one specific purpose in your life. Sometimes you just want to get here and see what you can do. You want to have fun with your life. In spirit we know that no matter what we experience, everything will be all right. Let me have the experience. Let me see how I handle it. Let me see what I learn from it.

It would be good for you to read books on healing. Hands Of Light, by Barbara Brennan, would be good. Any healing classes you can find during the COVID crises would also be good to take. Work with energy. Work with crystals. Work with plants and trees around where you live. Grow some plants, bring them into the house, and connect with them. Meditate in a room where you have plants. This will bring you more and more into the healing you wish to experience in this lifetime.

How Can I Make Sense of My Life Problems and Move Forward?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, JD, who asks for help making sense of problems in his life and how he can move forward. He says: I have numerous symptoms of inattentive ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder), maladaptive daydreaming, and high social anxiety. When I was young I developed double vision, and in my mid-teens I developed incontinence, possibly due to consuming a lot of liquid one day and something in my urinary system broke.

The Council says all these ailments JD is complaining about were set up by you in spirit before you came into this life because you wanted to be more self-accepting and confident. This involved your taking a physical and emotional path to make you feel less than who you truly are. With all these ailments there are many ways you can help yourself, but what you wanted to experience was these ailments and then to find a way other than medical to deal with these symptoms.

Your body is always trying to talk to you to let you know when it doesn’t feel right, to let you know where energy is stuck, and what needs your attention. Because you’re having physical problems throughout your body, The Council recommends you take one section of your body at a time. Talk to that part of your body and ask it what it’s trying to show you. Be patient. You’ll receive an answer.

If you don’t agree with what your body is telling you or you’d like to move on because the lesson is too painful, you can tell your body that you’d like another way to learn. You have to communicate with your body rather than looking for an answer outside yourself. When your body creates so many difficulties, it’s trying to find answers to emotional problems. What does this make you feel like? You set up this situation in spirit because you wanted to learn about self-confidence, which we see you don’t have because you feel less than everyone else.

After you talk to the body we suggest you meditate with your eyes closed and ask your body what it needs. No matter what your body shows you, even if it shows you a peanut, put this image where that part of your body hurts. There’s a meaning to what your body shows you whether you understand it or not. It’s your subconscious trying to give you answers.

We suggest you do the chakra breathing meditation often and concentrate on the chakra of the area you’re working on.

On a physical level, Chiropractic and Craniosacral adjustments will align your body to allow energy to flow through it properly. When your body hurts it’s the way that part of your body tells you it has no energy and you’re not allowing enough energy to come through. These adjustments will help you get the physical energy moving. This will take a lot of work on your part.

Then work on feeling confident. What can you do that makes you feel proud of yourself? Is it a hobby? Do you have good intuition? Is it eating well? Is it a hobby you’d like to do only for yourself and then develop it and see how good you can get at this? This will allow you to feel joy and feel kinder to yourself. When you get into this vibration it will allow your body to relax, it allows the blockages to be moved, and it allows the energy to come into your body. This will begin your healing.

JD says, in my early 20s I developed a persistent sty on my right eye and then a ringing in my right ear that I can’t really hear out of. The Council says this is your body telling you you’re not seeing and hearing things clearly. You’re experiencing life through a filter you’ve set up for yourself that makes you feel less than others.

JD says I think sitting on the computer and using a mouse tired out my hand and arm and the pain went all the way up to my ear. Once again it feels like something inside me broke. I’m concerned about all these physical problems because I’m not even 30 years old yet.

The Council says they can assure JD nothing inside of him is broken. It’s stuck energy. It’s the emotional healing you need concerning how you see yourself and how you move forward to change your situation. This is a big challenge you’ve created for yourself, but you never create these challenges without having the answers available to you.

JD asks what the source of all these problems is and is there anything he can do about it? The Council repeats that a lot of meditation will help, even if you can just sit and picture beautiful white light coming in the top of your head, going down your arms to your fingers and down your legs to your toes to begin to clear out the stuck energy.

JD says I only earn a minimum amount and I’d like to earn $50,000 a year. However, the problems I’ve mentioned have resulted in me having little experience, skills, connections, or education. The Council says you’ll need more education in your future.

We’d like you and everyone else to understand on a group level we’ve all agreed to be in this time where there are employment problems, health problems, and financial problems. Because everyone has agreed to experience these problems, when everyone works on themselves and their challenges, things will begin to change. You’ll not only heal yourself, but you also heal the entire reality you’re living in. Change will begin. There will be jobs in the future. There will be better health. There will be less tension in this world.

You’ve all created this situation and this quiet time so there can be introspection that allows you to search yourselves and see what’s truly important – to feel more love for your family and friends. Bringing in this love and having these kinds of thoughts will change everything.

JD asks for advice on what he can do to earn more money. He says: I think I might have to find an alternative to a typical nine to five job and work from home because of my numerous problems, but I have no idea what to do. The Council says it won’t be necessary in the future to work from home. This isn’t what you set up in spirit and isn’t what’s wanted by your higher self. Do the work we’ve recommended and you’ll begin to feel the change in how you think, how you feel physically, and what you’re able to bring into your life.

Is My Family Trauma More Spiritual Than Psychological?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Gloribet, that were prompted by her reading of our post, What is the Purpose of My Life?  Gloribet says she experienced much pain as a child because of emotional abuse and hard discipline from my father. This seems to be a theme in my father’s family where there’s a lot of trauma that’s passed down through generations.

The Council says the reason your family is experiencing this trauma is that each person wanted to work with this trauma and learn from it. You came together as a family to experience this trauma so that each person can realize it’s in the family and ask why this is going on? Just having this thought will provide each of you with support.

Gloribet says this trauma had a great effect on me. I put my life and health at risk constantly, but I’ve always been very protected. Now I’m healing and growing spiritually from what I lived. Is there a spiritual component to the pain in my father’s side of my family? Is the cause of this generational trauma more spiritual than psychological?

The Council says it’s always spiritual. It comes into your human life as a psychological problem or challenge, but your spirit chooses this challenge in order to work its way through it. Every member of your family has a different reason for going through this trauma, but you all came together to offer support you can feel on an energy level.

Gloribet asks: How can I help my family break from this trauma and give my aunt’s children a chance at a life filled with love and light rather than anger and pain? The Council says you can’t change anyone else. Your cousins will go through what they need to go through until they come to a place of understanding and learning. How you can help others in your family not have to go through this trauma is by treating everyone with kindness, empathy, understanding, and love. Don’t always focus on this problem in your family and talk about it. You’ll teach the younger generations through your actions and let these people know there’s someone there for them to speak about this trauma if they choose.

Gloribet asks if her helping with this family trauma is part of her chosen spiritual path and will help her with her personal growth. The Council says if your path has been difficult, it was chosen by you in spirit. Of course you’re on the right path. Will you get to where you want to go? Yes, when you show kindness and love and accept people for the way they are.

Is My Life Purpose to Save My Husband from Himself?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Amy, after she read a post we wrote called, “Help Leaving an Abusive Husband“. Amy says she wishes she read that post four years ago, but I probably wouldn’t have understood it then. I shared every emotion and felt every pain of the abusive relationship this woman spoke of about the struggle of leaving. I spent ten years of my life trying to live with this inner hell or fix it for the sake of my children, my career, my house, fear I’d be less happy alone than in an abusive relationship, and on and on. I placed one obstacle in front of another giving myself a reason to stay. I lived in fear and obsessed about the emotional abuse and my husband’s substance abuse I was allowing myself and my children to be subjected to day in and day out.

The Council says it’s wonderful you can look back and see what you allowed to happen. Now you can see how your marriage affected you and your children.

Amy says she spoke of nothing else to my friends and my therapist. For a long time I thought I was being punished and this was my fate. The Council says they hope you realize there was no one punishing you. It was an experience you needed to have and to work through, to see it and go forward with your life from where you are.

Amy says thank God I found teachers like you, Abraham, and several others. Over the last 18 months I feel I have come so far. I’m in the process of divorce, at peace with it, and I can’t wait to see how the next chapter of my life unfolds. What used to feel hopeless now feels limitless. I’m okay with not knowing, surrendering, and having big dreams. I don’t feel the abuse like I used to. It feels far away from me now and I’m starting to see the lessons my husband taught me. If only I made these changes ten years ago perhaps I’d have been able to save my marriage.

The Council says you couldn’t save this marriage on your own. These were experiences you wanted to have. Now that you’ve gone through it and experienced the challenges and the hardship you wanted, now you’re able to change your life.

Amy says through meditation I’m trying to see my husband and I feel sorry for what I see because I don’t think he loves himself. The Council says the emotion of feeling sorry for your husband doesn’t do either of you any good. You need to send your husband love and light even if you don’t agree with what he’s going through or how he handles it. These are his lessons.

Amy asks The Council if her life purpose is to help her husband and save him from himself. The Council says no, it’s not. One of the things you agreed to before coming into this lifetime was to help your husband with his challenges, watch him, see what he’s going through, and learn from these experiences. You didn’t agree to save him. What you’re supposed to do is send light and love. You can’t get your husband to change. This is something he has to come to in his own time. Helping and understanding doesn’t mean staying in an abusive relationship. Send him the energy that’ll help push him through his challenges if and when he’s ready. That’s your purpose.

Amy says I feel like I failed my husband and our children on some level because I’ve been down this road with him before. The Council says you haven’t failed your husband or your children. Remember, in spirit before you came into this lifetime, you, your husband, and your children agreed to experience what you’ve been going through. They’re all lessons you wanted to experience. Know you’re on the right path. How you handle what you experience will make it change for you. It will help you to see it in a different way and help you move through it.

Amy says my Mom fell ill and passed away and my husband made this time very difficult. That was the catalyst for me. The pain brought me to a spiritual awakening and I’m now so thankful. The Council says we’d like you to pay attention to what you’ve said, which is the pain that brought you to a spiritual awakening. The pain did what it was supposed to do.

Amy says that was two years ago and asks The Council if this is guilt. The Council says of course this is guilt. It’s part of the human condition, but it’s not necessary. Remember that you, your children, and your husband are spirit and you’ve all agreed to create the drama that’s been going on. How you look at this and change it, and how you look forward with thoughts of happiness that you can create whatever you need to create is what’s important right now. Always send each other light and help them, but accept them as they are.

If your husband doesn’t behave the way you’d like him to behave, it’s because he’s still working on his challenges. Your husband isn’t in your life to meet what you expect from him. Wish him well, send him love, and hopefully when he’s ready, he’ll move through his challenges.

Should I Contact My Dead Father Through a Medium?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, JERL, who says lately in my spiritual journey I’ve been drawn to my painful past and memories of my early childhood when I was neglected by my father and step-mothers. The Council says this is wonderful because you pre-planned in spirit to do this and it means you’re ready now. You’re ready to look at these memories, to go over what’s happened, change how you think about it, change how you understand it, change how you feel about it, and how to figure out how to let it go.

JERL says, I’m trying to sit with the sadness, but I keep feeling drawn to meeting with a medium to talk with spirit about my father who I was happily estranged from for ten years before he killed himself last year. The Council says there’s light and joy on the other side of the sadness. Just sit with it. The more you can sit with your sadness you’ll see it won’t kill you or hurt you. You’re remembering an emotion and you’re remembering it in order to go through it and heal it.

JERL says his father was very negative and part of JERL is afraid that even in spirit he’ll cause me painful memories if I speak with him. The Council says if you truly connect with your father’s spirit, and you don’t need someone else to help you do this, there won’t be a single negative thought, or negative word, or anything that would be said that can hurt you.

Unfortunately, in your reality people feel they have to go to someone else in order to speak with someone who’s passed into spirit. Meditate. Talk to your father in your mind and this other person won’t be necessary. Many of these mediums and psychics are very good, but what isn’t commonly understood is that they often don’t connect with the spirit of the person you want to connect with. These mediums are connecting with these people’s essence of who they were when they were alive.

When a medium gives you negativity or tells you something horrible that this spirit says to you, it isn’t who the spirit truly is. The medium is just connecting with who the person was when they were alive. When you connect with spirit it will be beautiful. If you feel you need someone to connect you with your father, keep searching until you find the right medium. All good mediums that give you messages from spirit will be helpful, they’ll make you laugh, there will be talk of love, and there will be great understanding.

JERL continues, on the other hand I’d like to understand what my father’s life goals were and be able to forgive him so I can pray for his well-being every day. The Council wants you to know that you chose your father to play this role in your life. You both got together in spirit and planned how your life would be and how you could learn from it. How your father behaved was part of the act he put on. It was like being on stage. He played a part. He lost track of who he truly was as a spiritual being. He was hurt as a child and this negativity and hurt carried through to his adult life. Unfortunately it affected you.

Know there are reasons your father was the way he was. It wasn’t your fault. This was something you both agreed in spirit to experience. When you think of your father, what did he teach you? What kind of person did it make you? When you understand that in reality he had his problems and they caused him to be the way he was. There were lessons your father wanted to learn.

When you think of your father, can you think of him having his own challenges? Think of how he was hurt and suffering inside. How you were treated doesn’t make it right. It was part of the deal you made with your father in spirit. When you think of him being negative and suffering, what did this teach you? What did you learn? When you can repeatedly look at your father’s negativity, no matter how many times it takes, and not feel sadness, even if you go numb, if you no longer hurt from it, you’re starting on the path of forgiveness. Know you’ve come through what you’ve experienced. What have you learned? The purpose of experiencing this neglect is to understand what you’ve learned.

JERL continues, I understand I chose my father in order to learn my lessons and that we were friends and enemies in other lives. In my current life, putting a boundary between him and me has been healthy for me. The Council says it’s wonderful you knew exactly what you had to do to make your life better. There’s no guilt in that.

JERL says he’s wary and a little scared of his thoughts that it’s time to reconcile with his father. The Council says if you truly want to reconcile, this will happen when you begin to understand your father had his challenges. He played the part he was supposed to in your life, and he did this to help you grow and learn because that’s what you wanted. All this thinking about your past will help you move forward. Then you’ll be ready to forgive. It’s not that someone is telling you it’s time to forgive. You’ll know it’s time because you’ll have more understanding.

JERL asks if he should trust his urges and meet with his father in spirit through a medium? The Council says if you go to a medium who gives you scary or angry messages, or any message that makes you feel bad, don’t go back to this person. Find someone else and you’ll see the difference in the messages that come through.

Your father has reviewed his life and knows he did his part. He’s sending you light to help you get to a place of forgiveness. When you’re ready, you’ll let this light in.

Learn to meditate. Sit quietly in a chair, even if it’s for five minutes a day, and picture your father’s face. This may be difficult in the beginning. Then begin to speak to your father. You can tell him how you feel and what your experience with him has done to you. Ask your father to let you know it was all part of your spiritual plan. Ask for information and your father and your spirit guides will help you get it. Somehow you’ll just know the answers to your questions. It’s not like you’ll hear a word for word explanation. It will come all at once in a block of feeling. Everything will lift and you’ll realize you’re surrounded by guides, angels, and beautiful light energy.

Since you’ve gone through this painful history it’s now helping you move past it. Before you go to bed you can ask for information or ask to feel forgiveness. When you feel this forgiveness you’ll be able to connect with your father, because the negativity between you and spirit will prevent this from happening. If you do the work and take the time, you’ll find the answers you seek. No one else is needed.

How Can We Help My Aunt with Her Depression?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Looking For Advice, who says: For the last few years my aunt has slipped into a depression. She was a happy and lively woman before, but ever since she became depressed she’s lost the essence of herself.

The Council says the depression is something she’s gone into because she’s focusing on a lot of loss she’s gone through, she’s feeling alone, and she’s close to the end of her life. There is a withdrawing going on and you should allow this withdrawing to happen.

In spirit your aunt prepared to have many disappointing experiences and losses and then to go into this depression to look at each of these experiences. While in her depression your aunt wanted to be surrounded by caring people and experiencing love. Even though she’s withdrawn her spirit can feel this love.

The way to help your aunt is not to treat her as a depressed person, but to speak energetically with her. Talk about daily events, news, and things on television. Keep your aunt in the present moment and get her interested in what’s going on around her. If she’s feeling cared for and allows these feelings from her family and friends to come into her energy field, she’ll slowly come out of this depression.

You have to give your aunt time to experience her feelings and thoughts of loss and think about what she’d like to do with the rest of her life. She’s in a time of withdrawal and during this she’s creating her future.

Looking For Advice says: My aunt’s family has tried all sorts of doctors and praying to different gods, but she’s not even close to the way she was. She’s even undergone thyroid surgeries to make it a little better, but nothing seems to be helping. The Council says the thyroid surgeries aren’t the answer.

The Council says when you experience a lot of loss or a lot of hurt from the people around you, while it’s going on you can ignore it and put it in the back of your mind in order to live your day to day life. When you get older and things quiet down, these memories start to come back into your awareness and make the havoc you weren’t willing to face when you originally experienced them. You must allow your aunt to go through this.

You can ask her if she wants to talk about anything from her past. You can bring up good memories to give her positive thoughts, but the main thing is to show love. By allowing her to be who she is she can work her way through this depression.

The Council closes by saying instead of trying to get your aunt to be her old self, love her by allowing her to be in this challenge that she’s set up for herself. Her higher self wants to go through this depression and find it’s way out.

How Can I Overcome My Bulimia?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Chris, who says: Throughout my life I’ve overcome a number of obsessive-compulsive disorders and addictive behaviors including alcoholism. However, after 34 years (I’m now 46) I still suffer from bulimia. I’ve been in four in-patient centers and worked with several therapists and counselors and I can’t figure out how to move beyond this. I understand all about eating disorders, I have significant conscious self-awareness, I’ve worked with an energy healer, and I’m at a loss for how to rid myself of this problem. Any insight, ideas, or guidance would be helpful.

The Council says what you planned before incarnating was simple, but when you arrive on the Earth path it doesn’t seem so simple. It’s not like a specific past life is influencing what you chose. What you wanted to do in some form was teach.

You planned in spirit to become “trapped” in different disorders and you wanted to go through them. The way you’d get out of them was to think of every challenge you faced. What did you think while you were in each disorder? What did it feel like? But most important, what did you learn?

As an alcoholic, or bulimic, or any negative pattern you felt trapped in, you wanted to learn what it felt like to be in each situation. Go back in time, think of everything you went through, and ask yourself what you learned when you were an alcoholic and wait for some ideas to come to you.  Then ask what else you learned. It’s like peeling an onion. What did you learn? What else did you learn? And then how did you change the pattern?

What will help you complete these challenges you set up is to learn from each situation and then to tell people about them. This is how you wanted to teach. You wanted to go through each challenge, feel what it was like, and find out what you learned. What kept you in each pattern and what helped you get out of it? As you focus on still being bulimic (or any other challenge you bring into your life), when you focus on what you’re feeling and what you learned, you’ll complete the challenge.

This will help you learn how to face your challenges. The most important thing to ask is what it felt like being in it? What did you learn from it? How did you handle the challenge emotionally and physically? And how did you get out of it? All this information is what you planned in spirit to put together in a way to help others come through their own challenges.

What’s going on in your life concerning your bulimia? Why are you in it? What pushes the button that makes you bulimic? What does it feel like? Is it a control issue? Does it bring up feelings of being weak or abandoned? It’s up to you to search what goes on within you physically, emotionally, mentally, and put this information together. When you look at the other challenges you had and you see why you went into them, what was going on for you? How did you get out of the challenge? You’ll find the pattern you’re looking for and it will help with your bulimia.

Your bulimia isn’t any different than your alcoholism or any of your other challenges. Go back into these issues and see how it felt. What got you into this challenge and how did you come out of it? What did you learn from this challenge? Will the way you came out help others? This is what you planned in spirit: to go through each challenge, to have the experience, the feeling, the thoughts, the emotions, and then to change the challenge by getting out of it. And then you wanted to help others with your knowledge. This is exactly what’s happening. There will be a similar pattern that you’ll find as you go through each challenge you set up and it will help with overcoming your bulimia.

Is There a Past Life Relationship to My Being Underweight My Whole Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Wonder, who says I’ve been underweight my whole life and I’ve tried to gain weight many times. Sometimes I’m successful, but something always comes along to disrupt my weight gaining journey and bring me back to my previous weight. Do I have a past life that’s affecting my difficulty having a normal weight?

The Council says there’s a particular life in the courts of France where you came from a wealthy family and witnessed many wealthy people hoarding food, living a life of abundance, and not sharing while many people didn’t have enough food or places to live.

In that life you cared about others who were hungry, always trying to help these people, and generously fed them. But you ended that life very upset and not understanding how the other wealthy people could be obese while others had nothing.

You’ve come into your current life with the subconscious memory of that life in France and the belief that you don’t want to misuse your body and become overweight. The best thing you can do now is understand how you helped so many in that past life. In your current life you don’t have to make yourself look the way those poor people in France looked to understand what they went through. There’s a part of you that came forward thinking you had to be the way the poor people were.

In your current life how much do you give to others and share? When you do this, remember you’ve done this in an earlier life and there’s no need to deprive yourself to keep your body where you don’t want it to be. This is your struggle with gaining weight. The memory is there that if you eat, you’re taking away from others.

That was then and this is now. You can put on weight if you want to. It’s not taking away from others. You aren’t responsible for others not having enough food. When you understand this and how past lives can affect your present life, you’ll be able to gain the weight you desire.

What you want to experience in your current life is giving more of yourself and feeling good about this, and to understand the issues of how your body looks are separate from what you’re trying to experience.

Read and understand how past lives affect you, not just on eating, but on any challenge you face in your current life. See how other people have come to understand what they’ve gone through and how they’re able to change their life.

When you truly understand you have so many subconscious memories from that past life that are keeping you from looking the way you want to look in your current life, you can begin to change this. Understanding your past helps you reveal the lessons you wish to learn.

Your appetite will return and you’ll understand how much you’ve done for others. There’s no need to experience the hardship of not eating and not looking the way you wish to look. When the understanding comes your appetite will return, you’ll gain the weight, and you’ll slowly change that lesson.

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.

How Can I Heal My Relationship With My Mother?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who asks about their relationship with their mother. PE says a while back they asked The Council why they were so afraid of their mother and they were given a thought-provoking response about their past lives together.

The Council asks PE if they’ve done the inner work on this relationship? Have you read up on past lives and why you go through these challenging situations so you can learn from certain experiences that can bring on emotional healing. It’s important you learn more about past lives.

The Council doesn’t think PE has done enough research into past lives. Being terrorized by your mother is very traumatic. It’s normal to want to heal this trauma quickly, but you wanted to go through this experience to learn more about terror, fear, past lives, and more about healing these situations.

The way you heal this is to learn who you truly are. You do this by learning to meditate. You do this by learning how your spirit comes back lifetime after lifetime and that there isn’t any ending. This is just an experience you wish to have. The purpose of feeling terrorized by your mother was to push you into learning more about past lives. You’re going through this experience to learn from it and to let the fear go.

The Council recommends reading the Emmanuel books by Pat Rodegast to get used to how spirit explains things in a simple way. When you get the feeling the things you’re going through aren’t so serious and your life isn’t a place where fear can win, you can understand how to let go of the fear. But you have to learn who you are as a spiritual being. Also read books by the spirit, Bartholomew, the Abraham material, and books by Brian Weiss, MD.

You have set up this experience with your mother. You wanted to feel this fear and this terror and it’s here for you now to understand it, to heal it, and to learn who you are as a spiritual being.

How Can We Be Individual and One at the Same Time?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kaitlin, who’s read a lot about spirit and near-death experiences, and she notices what she reads is often contradictory. The Council says isn’t it wonderful that different people in our reality have different opinions and contradict each other? And they ask if we can see how wonderful our free will is?

Kaitlin says she understands we are eternal souls and she wonders what part of our personality is eternal? The Council says every personality from every life you’re living is part of who you are in spirit and will always be with you. It’s like your memories coming with you when you transition back into spirit. All the things you love, all the things you’re interested in, and even the things you feared and your challenges come with you into spirit, but you see these things from a totally different perspective in spirit.

Kaitlin’s read we’re eternal souls, we’re all one, and this life is like a dream. It feels real while we’re here in a physical body, but when we die, that’s the real reality. And in spirit we’ll reach a point where we merge with source and realize we were never separate in the first place.

The Council agrees you are never separate from source. Every lifetime and every reality feels real to us while we’re in them so we can have the experience we’ve created. And when you return to spirit it all feels like a dream. When you come from the divine part of you into the human part of you, they are both real. Every incarnation is real. The physical part is real. This physical part is what’s needed to get you through whatever experiences you choose.

Kaitlin asks how we can be individual and one at the same time? How are we eternal? And why do people say we’ll reach a point when we realize there was only ever one of us? The Council says when you know you’re truly God and that God is within you in every life you choose to live and every experience you wish to have, you take the part of source or God with you into your physical life. You’re still connected to source. You’re still connected to God energy.

As you create a new personality, the God part of you comes along for the ride to have these experiences you’ve chosen. Each person is part of source, is part of God. The greater part of who you are still remains in the spirit world, still remains as God. Picture the Sun as the source and each of the Sun’s rays is a different person and a different lifetime, but you’re all coming from source. When you feel you’ve learned everything you need to learn, you can return to source, be part of it, and no longer come forward until you feel the need.

When we experience ourselves as one with everything, we can experience every lifetime that everyone has ever gone through. We have all the knowledge of everything that’s ever happened. This is the part of us that’s one. We’re able to feel and learn from every other part of source that comes forward. When we wish to have our own personal journey we send out a piece of ourselves to experience that journey. And as we return to source, all the others can learn from us also.

Kaitlin says she’s read we are souls that incarnate into humans who have their own separate personalities that are violent and fear-based. The Council says it’s important to know everyone has a goal to accomplish. As a soul with a divine source you can choose any goal. When you experience coming into your human body you can choose to be violent as a challenge to turn this violence around. If you choose to come into a human body to understand fear, this fear is created by you to understand it and turn it around. It’s not a terrible thing to come into a body and be violent or fearful. You’re learning what this particular challenge is or you’re helping other souls to learn this.

Kaitlin asks, or is life all love and everything is energy and nothing is actually physical. The Council says we are all love. When we incarnate into a life as a human we experience the physical, but we’re also still energy. We’re energy that’s taken on the form of a physical body that’s necessary for us to experience what we’ve asked to experience in this lifetime. When you remove yourself from your body, you’re light, you’re love, and you’re energy. When you incarnate into a body, you’re squeezing a small part of who you are as spirit into this body.

The Council closes with a reminder to keep thinking and keep expanding your mind. Put love into everything you come across because that’s what called you here.

Why Can’t Lesson Learning Be Easier?

This post answers questions from an anonymous reader who says that learning lessons is a very good thing, but I don’t understand why we have to learn our lessons with so many challenges like suicide, murder, alcoholism and drug addiction.

The Council says not all lessons are challenges and not everyone chooses to experience the challenges you mention. Some people need to learn to feel joy, to feel free, to feel wonderful, or to connect and realize who you are. All these experiences aren’t challenging. Every lifetime you pick a different situation, different things you want to experience, and different reasons you want to experience it. Some are challenging and some are wonderful.

Anonymous says they wish The Council would make it easier for people to learn lessons. The Council replies they take no blame and no credit for the lessons you choose. We are not in charge of everyone. We can’t make anything harder or easier for you. Why is it our choice to pick your lessons for you? You are in control.

The Council says when you are in spirit and you are choosing these challenging lessons they don’t seem difficult. It’s something you’re looking forward to in order to see how you’ll grow from these lessons, how you’ll bring love into these situations, and knowing when you finish your life and come back into spirit you’re fine. What have you learned from this experience? How did you handle it? This is how you learn about you.

Comparing Ideas of Abraham and Robert Schwartz on Learning

This post answers questions from a reader named, Lindsay, who’s reading Your Soul’s Gift, by Robert Schwartz and really enjoying it. Before reading this book she was reading Abraham as channeled by Esther Hicks, and was having difficulty reconciling these two points of view. Abraham says you can be, do, or have anything you desire, and Rob talks about a spiritual pre-life plan that includes suffering to help you learn and grow.

The Council begins by saying you don’t pre-plan every minute of your life while you’re in spirit. You plan some lessons you want to learn, and some of these are very pleasant and some are challenging. If you’ve chosen a lesson that causes a lot of pain and suffering, you have the free will to change this spiritual plan while you’re in human form.

Abraham says you can be, do, or have anything you want in this life and The Council agrees. They also say this can sometimes take a lot of work and focus. Many people have problems doing this because they figure if they focus for a day or a week that’s enough to change things. Sometimes it takes a lot more focus and time. During this time you’d be learning patience, researching what you want, and getting into it in more detail.

When you’re in spirit and planning to come into a physical body the challenges you wish to go through as a human are difficult, but in the spirit world you think you can handle this. You think, let me see how I can turn this situation around and bring more love into it. And we in spirit, guide you any way we can to help you get through whatever it is you want to learn. In your human form things can be challenging, but in your spiritual form you are learning and growing. When you return to spirit you’ll be able to bring what you’ve learned back with you and all spirits will learn from it.

Robert Schwartz’s books deal with why we pick challenging experiences, what we can learn from them, and how these experiences will affect the people around us. Abraham is lighter. He says you’re in control and you can change your life. Just imagine what you want, see it, feel it, and you can create it. Both of these points of view work, but they are coming from different directions.

Not everyone plans to suffer through their life and not everyone plans to be happy all the time. Life is about experiences. Everything you go through, whether it’s a happy life or a challenging life, is experience to learn and grow from.

When you choose an experience that’s difficult and you’re in pain, you can change this by meditating and remembering who you truly are as a spiritual being. You have all the tools you need to get through this life and change it. If you want a difficult experience there’s a way to get through it. Meditate on this and see your situation the way you want it to be.

The purpose of Robert Schwartz’s books are to demonstrate more understanding of why people suffer. People who are suffering want answers. They ask why they’re suffering and why are they going through what they’re going through. Robert Schwartz sheds light on this. His information is very important to the people who need to understand why life is so difficult for them when they think they would never chose to create these difficulties.

When you read some of Robert’s stories you begin to realize they make sense. At one time or another, in one of your many lifetimes, you will have challenges. It will be difficult for you, but it’s because you wished to experience these challenges.

How Can I Mend a Deteriorated Personal Relationship?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Glenda, who says she met someone about 8 years ago that she believes was her twin soul. We had so many similarities and we could tell without a word what the other was thinking.

The Council says this is because there have been many, many lifetimes where you’ve popped in and out of each others lives, almost like brothers and sisters. The two of you have had lots of fun as well as a lot of challenges. And you continue to want to come in and out of each other’s lives.

Glenda says two years ago this man took a job that required a move to a city further away. He changed after this move and he was aware of this and frustrated by it. We had a few arguments about his behavior, which had never been an issue before, and it led to him largely cutting me from his life.

Glenda says she understands about loss. Both her parents as well as some dear friends have passed from this life and she’s had failed relationships also. The situation with this man doesn’t feel like any of those. It’s more like a piece of herself is missing. She asks The Council if there’s a way to mend the link between her and this man.

The Council says this was an experience she wanted to have from a spiritual perspective. She wanted to learn about loss, how to accept it, and how to let it go. This relationship can be mended, but it will take time. The Council suggests Glenda does the inner work first by sending loving energy and talking to the spirit of this person. You are here to help each other. Learn from this situation. It’s okay to leave each others lives and you’ll always be able to return.

The Council says this situation has been repeated by the two of you in past lives, but there’s a desire on both your parts to be in relationship in this lifetime. The frustration this person is going through is what leads to the arguments and you have to allow this soul time to work this out on their end. With patience, inner work, and meditation contact will be made again. The Council feels it’s possible to hear from this person in six months, but they say the timing is also up to the people involved.

You wish to experience time together then separate. Sometimes in past lives it was for good and sometimes you came back. When you separate you learn more about yourselves and when you come back together you’re able to share what you’ve learned and you both grow from this.

The Council says there’s only a slight possibility of this relationship becoming romantic in this lifetime, but it wasn’t really something that was planned from a spiritual perspective.

How to Improve Relationship with Your Family

This post answers follow up questions for The Council from a reader named, Kali, who previously asked questions that were answered in our post, Problem Being Estranged from Her Family. Kali says she’s been working hard on this issue, taking The Council’s earlier advice on acceptance, compassion, allowing, and self-examination. She feels like she’s making progress and was able to attend her family’s holiday celebration recently. She says it wasn’t horrible, but she wasn’t able to enjoy herself. She asks if The Council has any more advice on how she can improve her family situation further?

The Council suggests asking why you didn’t enjoy yourself at your family party. What was it about each person you didn’t enjoy? It’s a great experience to be somewhere and not enjoy yourself, but realize you got through it.

It’s wonderful you went to the party and realized it wasn’t that bad. The reason you’re in this situation is to learn more about yourself. What do you expect from these people? How would you have liked the party to be? Did you go to the party expecting it to not work out? Or hoping it will work out, but not having a detailed image in your mind of how it would work out? Did you try to create a happy occasion with your thoughts? Or did you just grumble and go and see what happened?

Kali asks if it’s important that she like her family members. The Council says we’ve come to bring love into this reality. There are things people do that we may not like, but can you love them as another soul? Yes, it’s important to bring love in for your family even if you don’t really like them.

Kali says she feels giving up a desire to be validated by her father has helped her spiritual growth and she asks if The Council can confirm this. The Council says this is true and it’s one of the things you wished to do in this lifetime. You wanted to see everyone as they are and learn to allow them their opinion. But you wanted to have your own opinions about things and yourself and to stand strong in your opinions so that you don’t need to be validated by anyone else.

The Council suggest meeting with your family one on one a little at a time. If this isn’t possible, then do your best to show up at another family gathering and think of each person as a spirit. Meditate on the idea that they’re here with their challenges. They are here to learn from you and you’re here to learn from them.

Why am I Having Mental and Physical Health Problems?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Carl, who’s wondering why he’s increasingly having problems with his mental and physical health and vitality despite feeling more aware of God, and he wants to know what he’s doing to perpetuate this struggle. He also feels he has a big purpose in this lifetime and asks how the world will come to know him.

The Council asks Carl what routine he uses for getting to know God. Do you feel the joy and happiness from knowing God? Do you feel all is well? If you feel this way the mental and physical challenges you’re going through will decline. The Council says to read about God is one thing and to think about God is another, but they ask Carl to find the feeling of God. Go into your heart and look for the light, even if it’s just a pinpoint. Grow into this light and have it expand. In this light feel for God. God is within you.

The Council says any physical and mental problems always stems from the spirit being confused on it’s path. By bringing the focus of God back into your life and your body the physical and emotional challenges you feel, no matter what they are, will slowly disappear.

How quickly Carl is able to feel better depends on him. How often are you willing to feel the presence of God in your heart and sit in this vibration? Once you begin to do this, even if it’s just for one minute, you’ll begin to see the change. You’ll see how nice this feels and you’ll want to stay in this vibration. You’ll gradually meditate for longer periods of time to stay in this vibration longer and your life will begin to change.

The Council says by Carl not being enough in the light his thoughts aren’t appropriate for what he’s trying to achieve. Change your thoughts. Focus on the energy of love. Be kinder to yourself and do more things you enjoy. If you can get in the vibration of laughter you’ll begin to heal faster.

The Council says each spirit that’s here knows Carl. The fastest way to get people to know you and want to know more about you is to offer these people love, kindness, a service if you can help someone, or an ear to listen to them. As people begin to see you their idea of who you are also changes. The Council says you can take this into any part of your life. You can take this into relationships, you can take this into your career, and you can take this into family matters. By working on this level of love, kindness, and service, doors will open to you and people will want to be around you.

How Do I Let Go of a Decades Old Memory?

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

That post prompted Pam, to write the following comment:

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How Can I Find Work I Feel Passionate About?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Rob, who asks about following your natural passion. He’s heard if you want to generate money, you just need to do what’s natural and money will be a by-product of that.

The Council replies that you must do what makes you happy. When you’re in the vibration of happiness, that vibration includes money, it includes abundant health, it includes growth in every direction, and it includes abundance of every kind. Everything must be done from the vibration of happiness.

Rob says he’s always been shy, physically weak, has concentration issues,  maybe he has an attention disorder, and all these things make a normal occupation seem unrealistic. The Council suggests rather than thinking less of yourself for creating these limitations, you created them for the purpose of working through them, changing them, being happy, and being successful. 

Rob says he chose an easy program in college because he was unsure what to do and he feels this has limited his success at getting meaningful jobs. The Council says every job is meaningful if you’re grateful you have it, you grow from it, and you can have more. It’s up to you to look at whatever job you create and make sure you love it and that it feels good to you. It’s not about what your parents or your friends think is meaningful. How does it feel for you?

Rob says he has no specific skills, experience, or connections and has a warehouse job he dislikes. He feels the universe is encouraging him to leave this job sometimes because it continues to get more difficult in various ways. The Council says this is a sign. If you don’t follow this sign the universe will step in and make your job a little more difficult. If you still don’t follow these signs the universe thinks you’re not getting the message and maybe you’ll have an accident and can’t go to work for a couple weeks. The universe wants to know what else it can do so you get the message to get out of this job and trust there will be something else.

Rob asks The Council’s advice for someone in his difficult position and The Council says you’re not in a difficult position. You’re in the exact position you wanted to be. You created your life so you’d be in this position. It’s time for you to make a change. We suggest you look for work outside. This is the next step you wanted. You’re in transition. Nature will give you a lot of new energy and bring you new ideas. When you’re grateful for what you have, when you accept the change and trust you can accomplish so much more, it will come. There are no menial jobs. Every job is needed. Believe in yourself and you’ll find a new job.

Rob says perhaps there are examples of what the Seth material refers to as probable selves that are more successful and I can get ideas from them. The Council says there are many you’s in different past, present, and future realities. If there’s something you’d love to do, meditate on it or write down what you’d like. In another life you’ve done it or this desire wouldn’t be here. Pretend to see what that life is like so you can connect with a part of your other self and bring that information into this reality so you can do that here. The information is there.

You are an intelligent being. You’re a spirit who came into this life creating all kinds of stuff and if you need help from angels, they will come. If you need to connect with your higher self, you will. If you need to connect to the many parts of you that are in other realities and on other planets, you will. You’ll raise your vibration. You’ll be excited about life. You’ll love that there’s a new part of you that’s waiting to develop and you’ll call it in.

The Council closes by saying Rob is on his path and asks him to be excited he’s in this reality. No matter what you created in this lifetime, whether it’s something to be grateful for or if it’s challenges, it’s all wanted. And you’ll find your way through it, help will be there, you’ll love yourself, and you’ll go on.

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

Questions About Her Son’s Physical Development

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Listen to the entire 9-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for SoulPeace and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do I Have Past Life Baggage With My Boyfriend?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who says she’s been with her boyfriend a few months now and she’s curious about some things she’s noticed in the relationship that she’s a little uneasy about. Sarah says the relationship has been a little more difficult than she expected and wants to understand it better so she can move forward in the most loving way possible. With this in mind Sarah asks The Council if she and her boyfriend are holding on to anything from one or more past lives that they plan on working through in this lifetime?

Around the time Sarah and her boyfriend began dating she also developed arthritis and a few other autoimmune diseases she’d experienced previously, but her lifestyle the past few years enabled her to experience remission of these diseases. Their reappearance seems to have upset Sarah’s life, and she suspects it has something to do with moving her in the direction of her soul’s purpose.

The Council says what would help Sarah physically at this point is to focus on being more flexible and be more open to accepting ideas that she disagrees with. Ask yourself, “Where am I too stiff in my beliefs? What am I not flexible about? Do I see the other side of the coin? Do I allow others to be who they are and not to follow how I wish it should be?”

When you find yourself with immune system problems, the body is telling you that emotionally there’s a battle going on. With your boyfriend, if things don’t go the way you want, is there enough in this relationship to bring the love in? Can you look at your boyfriend and know there are experiences that are needed here? You may not know what these experiences are and you may not understand them. But allow your boyfriend not to be perfect and love him anyway, and love yourself also for accepting your boyfriend’s imperfections.

We are always here to bring love into every situation. When you are more accepting, and not in the way where you accept your situation and are depressed because your relationship isn’t what you originally thought, you can focus on moving forward. Accept and applaud the soul of your boyfriend for what he’s trying to accomplish.

Fuel your body so the joints and organs have what’s needed to work correctly and the body knows you’re honoring it. You need to drink lots of water and green tea. Beans and all kinds of vegetables in any way possible are needed. Low fats are needed as well as some carbohydrates. When you bring love into every situation and love and take care of yourself, the vibration begins to focus on healing and you’ll see a change in your body and in your relationship.

The Council sees a past life in London where she and her boyfriend were siblings with a lot of anger toward each other and competition that didn’t allow closeness and understanding. They didn’t bring love for each other into this life as siblings, and so the two of you thought you’d work on bringing the love into your current lifetime.

When there’s anger, look at it. Here conversation is needed, which can bring about many laughs and new ideas. This current relationship is important to both of you. It will affect all parts of your life. The Council advises you to stay in this relationship and learn from it. It will change for the better.

Sarah says she feels like she’s supposed to help the world heal and she’d like to know if her intuition is true. The Council says she’s partly on the right track. She’s here to help herself heal, see how you do it, and then speak to others about what you’ve learned. You’ll give others help as you go through healing yourself.

Sarah asks The Council about a career change she senses and The Council says at this time Sarah needs to focus on well being and acceptance.

Have I Learned What I Intended to Learn in the Relationship I’m Thinking of Ending?

This post answers a question from a reader named, Michelle, who’s thinking about ending a long-term relationship, but she questions if she’s learned everything she was meant to learn from this relationship. Michelle says the thought of continuing the relationship is exhausting, but she hasn’t been able to bring herself to end it. She asks The Council if her need to stay in this relationship is a human one or a spiritual one?

The Council says there’s always more to learn in your relationship. When this relationship seems draining for you, it’s because you’re getting closer to what’s beyond the chaos of it, which is love.

The Council says the choice to leave or stay in the relationship is Michelle’s, not The Council’s, but they tell Michelle there’s a lot she wants to learn from this relationship. And they say the reason Michelle finds it difficult to let go is because the spiritual part of who she is knows there’s still more to be learned.

Know that if you continue with this relationship there will be good times and more to be learned. As you get beyond the difficulties in this relationship The Council says Michelle will grow by leaps and bounds and there will be lots of understanding on a spiritual level as well as a human level.

Listen to the entire 3-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Michele and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about this.

If a Soul Chooses a Difficult Life, Does the Soul Enjoy Suffering?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, which are based on an earlier post titled, Some Interesting Questions About Spirit. ImportantOrNotBlog asks if a soul chooses a life of difficulty full of pain and hardship, does that mean the soul enjoys suffering?

The Council says when you choose, as spirit, whatever you choose before you come into your current reality, you always think you’re a spirit and you’ll know how to handle whatever it is you’ve chosen. But when you come into your reality, you forget how to handle what you’ve chosen and how to turn it towards love.

The purpose of of forgetting is to learn how to work with whatever you’ve chosen and be able to turn it around. When you do this, there is major soul growth. This process can be very difficult for some people. But the more you can accept the hardship you’ve chosen, and show patience, and learn to work with your situation and slowly see it improve, you’ll feel stronger about yourself knowing no matter what the obstacle you’ve created for yourself, you’re working on it.

It’s not that the soul enjoys suffering. It’s important to remember who you truly are as a spiritual being in a physical body. As you’re able to bring the feeling of spirit into your physical reality, the easier it will be for you to experience positive changes.

The Council points out that sometimes there are spiritual contracts to teach people around you by your example because in other lifetimes these people didn’t have the compassion you’re learning in this lifetime. Or maybe the people around you were sick in another lifetime and you took care of them, and now they want to experience the other side of the coin and they choose to care for someone in this lifetime.

There’s a lot going on with people who are experiencing difficulties, and these difficulties aren’t only for the person experiencing them, because these people have agreed with the others around them how each one of them will grow from these difficulties. It’s a great blessing for everyone involved with these difficulties to go through them concentrating on compassion and love.

ImportantOrNotBlog says they understand difficult situations are for soul growth, but they ask, to what end? The Council says there isn’t any end, there’s just growth. When you return to spirit and you see the lives you’ve touched, you want to do more. And so you create lives where you have the opportunity to do more so you grow and the people in your life grow. And the more love you bring into your reality, the less suffering there will be.

ImportantOrNotBlog asks The Council if souls exist at different levels? The Council says if you mean is one soul smarter than the other, they respond that in some lifetimes the answer is yes and in some lifetimes the answer is no, but we’re all growing and everyone grows at their own pace. We’re all trying to evolve into spirit so everyone can experience love.

ImportantOrNotBlog closes by asking if soul growth helps the soul get to a higher spiritual level? The Council says they don’t feel comfortable with the word, level, but they say soul growth will take you to a higher spiritual understanding. It brings more love into your world and you grow. And with this love, as it grows within you, you want to share this love, and you’re in a great hurry to get back into another lifetime so you can stretch that love and grow more from it. And you want to put this love into another reality so others can feel this love and grow from it.

Some Interesting Questions About Spirit

This post answers some very interesting questions for The Council from a reader named, Mary, who starts by asking if spirit is constantly growing?

The Council says spirits from other dimensions and realities are coming to Earth to experience what they desire to experience, and in this way spirit is growing. And each spirit grows from everything that spirit learns in each dimension or reality. The Council adds that as we live in our current reality, if there’s another reality we’d like to experience, a part of our spirit is able to go into that new reality and create and learn there.

The Council says there’s no actual number of spirits and we can create as many different parts of ourselves, in different realities, as we need to create in order to have the experiences we desire. And all spirits in every dimension and every reality were created at one time. This is new information for us and we’re still trying to understand the implications of this.

Mary asks: If there are old souls with more wisdom, are newer souls more likely to choose difficult life situations? To clarify whether there are old souls and new souls, Bob asked The Council this question and The Council replied, “There are just souls.” The Council adds that the souls we humans consider old are the souls that bring more information back with them into the current reality. The newer souls that have so much to learn have decided to come back into this lifetime with less information from previous lifetimes so they can have a fresh experience what this information is.

To answer Mary’s question about whether a new soul is more likely to choose a life with more difficult situations than an old soul, The Council says the answer is no. On one hand The Council says a soul may decide to have an easy, loving life. And on the other hand this soul can decide it needs to experience a lot of difficulty so it can grow by changing the difficulty and learning from it. The Council adds that while this soul experiences this difficulty it has chosen, this soul is also teaching the people around it what it’s like to go through this difficulty. And The Council says an old soul as well as a new soul is able to go through an easy or a difficult lifetime.

The Council says all spirits know everything, but you choose to forget what you know as a spirit when you come into this reality and begin a new lifetime so you can learn more. The Council asks, why would you come back and experience another lifetime if you already knew everything? There’d be nothing new or fresh to experience and learn from.

Mary asks if an innate sense of morality and love stay with us and grow with us through lifetimes? The Council replies that our sense of morality and love changes with each lifetime. They say we can have a lifetime where we experience wonderful love, and then we can choose to come back and have a lifetime where we are bitter and unhappy and work our way back to love. In one lifetime we can be a priest or nun, and in another lifetime we can walk the docks where the moral isn’t so good. Each lifetime is according to what we wish to experience.

In Mary’s last question she asks if a soul can decide to be an evil person in order to direct others to a more righteous life, and The Council says this can definitely be the case. The soul choosing to be evil is loving the other souls in their life so much that it agrees to take on this evil role. The Council says each lifetime is just a play and you’re one of the actors in this play. You can choose to be evil because in spirit you know you are all love.

What is My Wife’s and My Purpose in This Lifetime?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Anthony, who says at the beginning of his relationship with his wife they experienced some traumatic events where his wife felt she had no control of the situation and she didn’t receive any support from him. These traumatic events occurred several years ago and Anthony’s wife is still suffering. He’s tried everything to help her and nothing has worked. She blames herself constantly and blames him. She’s not able to let go and forgive. Anthony wants to know if he and his wife have shared a traumatic past life together?

The Council begins by saying the loss of control is what Anthony and his wife experienced in another lifetime where Anthony was blind and mute. In this lifetime Anthony’s wife took care of him. It took lots of patience, was very strenuous for her, and it was difficult for her to understand she was making Anthony’s life better.

At the end of that lifetime they both decided they’d create another lifetime (their current lifetime) where Anthony would have the patience and show love and caring for the challenges his wife created for herself. Because of the love they have for each other, Anthony now wanted to be for his wife. He wanted to feel what it’s like so he can learn that side of reality.

The Council asks Anthony to try and focus on the good he’s done for himself and for his wife. The more aware he is of trying to be there for her, be a comfort to her, show her love, and help her through these challenges, this vibration of love exists between them. Eventually the more Anthony is able to focus on this love, even when his wife is blaming him, instead of blaming himself he should know his purpose is to help her through these challenges and to show his wife love.

Anthony and his wife have had many lifetimes where they take turns helping each other, and because they both enjoy this, and learn from it and grow from it, they created their current lifetime to continue this process of going through challenges.

Anthony asks the purpose of his and his wife’s life in their current lifetime? The Council says to be helpful to each other and show the people around them how they care for each other and have patience with each other, so their patience and love can grow within these people. Anthony and his wife have a challenge to work through with each other, and there’s the challenge of the people around them to observe this and learn from it.

Anthony says he feels like the challenge with his wife has something to do with his daughter, and The Council says this particular lesson doesn’t have to do with her, but he’s been with his daughter in other lifetimes. It’s his daughter’s wish in this lifetime to learn about counseling, and so what she sees between Anthony and his wife may help her go into this field. She has a wish to learn about people who are suffering, going through depression, and are suicidal, and also be helpful to these people.

Currently The Council feels Anthony’s daughter may pull away from him because she doesn’t have the understanding yet to be helpful to others in need. Anthony can bring this focus to his daughter by being understanding and having her see how he responds to his wife. Anthony should try not to get angry at sickness, but he can show great confidence in himself by knowing he’s doing the right thing by bringing love into this situation in any way he can.

The Council closes by reminding Anthony that his marriage is an agreement to experience the other side of the coin from the lifetime where he was blind and mute. The Council also says it would be good to play music for his wife every day or every other day. The body’s cells and the soul will respond to the calmness of the music. And to bring humor into the situation with his wife when he’s able. Then he’ll be able to see this situation change. The Council definitely sees a healing of the situation with Anthony’s wife can happen.

What Is My Soul’s Purpose in This Lifetime?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Maria, who wants to know her soul’s purpose in her current lifetime.

The Council begins by saying every soul’s purpose is to bring the love we need to see ourselves and others through the challenges we face. Then The Council looks in the Akashic records for more specific information for Maria and provides details of four particular lifetimes before focusing on her current life purpose.

In the first mentioned lifetime Maria worked in the great rooms of knowledge in a library of the ancient civilization of Lemuria. The Council advises Maria to read books about Lemuria, which existed around the same time as the civilization of Atlantis, and to focus on how peaceful it was. Maria worked in the quiet, helping people to find their spiritual path.

Several lifetimes after this life in Lemuria, Maria wanted to be among crowds where the excitement was. And so she worked in the marketplace in Ancient Rome. This was experienced and she found it wasn’t exactly what she was interested in. Even though she enjoyed the excitement of the people around her, this lifetime wasn’t enough of a challenge for her.

Next we move to a lifetime in the streets of India where there isn’t enough food, the environment was unhealthy, and there were other hardships. In this lifetime Maria again wanted to experience being around many people to see how she got along, but daily life was a challenge. When Maria finished this lifetime she thought it was very interesting, but it wasn’t quite what she wanted to bring love into and it didn’t feel like it was enough for her spirit to grow. She wanted a more challenging life.

Now we move to a lifetime in England where Maria is arrested for breaking into people’s houses and stealing. She’s given a lifetime sentence without opportunity for parole and was to live in a cell with other people who’ve picked a similar challenge for that lifetime. Knowing she had no freedom and was unable to improve her living conditions, Maria began to pray and meditate and showed the people around her how they could be happy in this very unfavorable place. At the end of this life Maria realized it was difficult, but she helped people connect to their spirit and to God, and they knew there was more to their existence than just being in that cell.

Now we come to Maria’s current lifetime. She wanted to take it easy this time around, almost like going back to her life in Lemuria. She wasn’t interested in the crowds and hardship in this life. She wanted to be among books and learn to connect spiritually with plants and animals. She wanted more quiet in this lifetime. These things will help Maria connect with her spirit in this life.

The Council advises Maria to avoid large offices where there’s lots of pressure. She wanted a calm, quiet life so she could regroup within herself. She doesn’t need to be a hermit and small groups of people are OK. She should read books, particularly about Lemuria. She’ll feel a connection to Lemuria and have some memories. She should go to the forest and parks when she can. Stay in a place of connection with spirit. Pray or learn to meditate and her life will be happier, more connected, more strength, and she’ll have more confidence.

Do I Have a Connection to the Pleiades Constellation?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Marie, who asks if she has a connection to the Pleiades, which is a constellation in the night sky. Marie says she always felt an intuitive familiarity as she began learning about Pleiadian’s connection to humans.

The Council says Marie has been in contact with Pleiadians. In her current lifetime she planned to be part of their research and teaching about working from the heart and how to raise your energy.

Many Pleiadians have come to Earth and are very concerned about the evolution of people here. They’re here to try and teach more understanding about working with heart energy as opposed to the energy of the mind. They want to help us move forward and not experience the challenges they faced as they evolved.

Pleiadians come from the star cluster that’s closest to the Earth. Sometimes significant numbers of them visit Earth. Marie has agreed to work emotionally with Pleiadians, have them visit her in dreams, and work on her development. Any sort of meditation or practice that will raise Marie’s energy is needed right now.

When Marie was young there was a woman in her neighborhood who was from Pleiades and she watched Marie’s development. When Marie finishes this lifetime she’ll be going back to Pleiades to discuss her lifetime on Earth, how she helped others around her come to a more loving vibration, and make decisions from a place of joy in her heart.

The Council feels Marie will have additional contact with beings from Pleiades. Someone will briefly come along and correct her thoughts, or agree with her if she’s on the right path, or show her another perspective. Marie should be aware of this. The Pleiadians won’t announce who they are, but they’ll be around. The Council advises Marie to enjoy the next part of her life. She’ll learn a lot. The fact that Marie had the thought that she’s connected to Pleiades is part of her remembering.

Pleiadians can assume a human body while here on Earth, but they don’t live a full human lifetime. They come to fulfill a particular task and then they return to Pleiades.

The basic purpose of Pleiadians on Earth is to bring peace. They are aware of our problems and are concerned about peace for our planet. The Council asks all of us to ask for peace in our meditations and prayers, to look within ourselves and see how we behave. Is it always in a peaceful manner?

On a slightly different subject Marie says she’s learned recently that the Rh negative blood type represents approximately 15% of the human population on Earth and might indicate extraterrestrial DNA. She asks if there’s any truth to this.

At first The Council doesn’t answer Marie’s question directly. Instead they discuss the difficulties extraterrestrials with high energy have being in a human body. Many extraterrestrials that come to Earth have blood differences, lower back problems, sinus problems, and problems with their tailbone. And other extraterrestrials come and have no differences.

When Bob pressed The Council on the question of Rh negative blood types and extraterrestrials they said it’s not always an indication of an extraterrestrial. Some extraterrestrials have this blood type, but not everyone who has it is an extraterrestrial.

Disconnecting From a Woman Who Wants an Intimate Relationship With Her Husband

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Sarah, who says her husband had an affair 5 years ago, but they agreed to stay together and work through this difficulty. They have two children. The current issue is that the woman her husband had the affair with insists on continuing contact with my husband.

The Council says in another lifetime in England this woman was the very possessive mother of your husband, and her possessiveness prevented him from forming healthy relationships with women. This woman has brought into her current life some memories of this previous lifetime, and that’s why The Council feels it will be difficult for this woman to let go of Sarah’s husband right now.

The Council asks Sarah what she’s doing to stop this woman from having continued contact with her husband? If there are phone calls, the best way to handle this is not to answer this woman’s calls and feed her possessiveness. It’s this woman’s challenge to release her possessiveness of Sarah’s husband and Sarah is unable to help this woman meet the challenges she’s set up for herself at this time. Sarah is only able to find ways to stay out of communication with this woman at all times, no matter how this woman threatens Sarah and her husband. There must be no communication at all.

In your husband’s past life he allowed his mother (this woman) to be possessive and rule his life. He missed out on relationships that would have been fulfilling. In his current life will he allow this woman to interrupt what he’s planed with Sarah. The challenge your husband created for himself in your current lifetime is to find the courage to speak up.

If this woman hasn’t stopped her harassment, have you called the police to help you with this? If not, why not? Your challenge is to believe in yourself and that you’ll get the help you need from the police if you wish to end this harassment.

The Council says it’s time to change the environment around you. A new beginning and a move is needed to start fresh and get away from your problem with this woman. But before this move is made, you must both find the courage to ask for the help that’s needed. If this isn’t done, your current situation will follow you. Another situation will come along where courage to speak out is needed and for you to know you’re deserving of peace and harmony.

The challenge is your self-expression. This is coming from another lifetime to be healed in this lifetime. If your husband continues communication with this woman, you need to look at the reasons why. If there’s no communication, eventually this harassment will stop.

Sarah says she grew up in a conservative Baptist family, wasn’t taught about things like chakras and vibrations, and she’s been slowly trying to learn about things like this on her own. The Council says this was planned by Sarah and it’s time for her to go further on her spiritual path and learn about these things. The book, Emmanuel, by Pat Rodegast will help her right now.

Sarah says her husband wants to move to a new house, but her heart’s not in it. She doesn’t feel finished living in her current house. The Council says Sarah isn’t so much unfinished with living in their house as she is unfinished with the challenge this woman represents in her life. When you feel you have more of a hold on the situation with this woman, clarity will come and you’ll be ready to move into a new house.

The Council says Sarah has many abandonment issues and change and fear from several past lives also come into this situation, but it’s secondary to the challenge of this woman and her relationship to your family. The #1 priority right now is beginning to change your relationship with this woman who is interfering in your life and how you work together with your husband to get through this challenge.

The Council adds that in a past life Sarah was a man who sent his family away to live in better conditions in the western part of the United States. Unfortunately they were living alone and were attacked and killed. Subconsciously Sarah carries this memory with her. If a fear comes up about what will happen to her family if they move, this is carried from that lifetime and a move when the time is right will be good and you won’t loose any of your family.

The Council closes by saying there will be much understanding and peace coming from reading the Emmanuel book mentioned earlier and they suggest also reading the second Emmanuel book also.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Sarah 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.

How Can I Improve My Relationship with My Son and His Anger?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who asks how she can improve her relationship with her 5-year old son who’s quick to anger. Anonymous says she tries to meet her son’s anger with patience and love, but she’s burning out.

The Council says this is a difficult journey for Anonymous. The soul of her son planned to come in with a lot of anger and have this anger most of his life. The meanness and violence he can show is something that’s been agreed to in spirit by the people he comes in contact with. And her son chose to be this way to teach the people around him how to show gentleness and kindness when they’re affected by someone like him.

The Council recommends spending a lot of one on one time with her son.

Her son has chosen music to make him feel better and The Council recommends she play music for him, particularly classical music like Beethoven and particularly at night before bed, and have him create movement to this music. This should help him deal with his anger. And The Council advises trying to keep him in small groups rather than larger ones.

Learn to be kind and gentle with your son’s behavior, but teach him what’s acceptable behavior and always show that you’re loving him. You may not approve of his actions or words, but inside there’s a very brave soul that wants to be accepted and also taught how to be.

The Council repeats that her son’s behavior was agreed to in spirit and asks her not to become upset with him. He wants to learn about frustration and not being understood, and then being understood by people who are capable of teaching him.

Part of her son’s brain will have a difficult time understanding what he’s being taught because he’ll be overcome with feelings of frustration. When this happens she must remember this is her lesson also and she must learn how to handle his feelings. This is a new experience for her that was also agreed to in spirit.

The Council recommends Anonymous meditate and find time for herself. They add that counseling for her to help deal with her son may be necessary. And they also recommend reading books on past lives to learn about difficult lessons and challenges . This lesson touches everyone in the family because everyone wanted to bring love into this reality no matter how difficult it was.

Anonymous asks what she and her son are here to teach each other in this lifetime? The Council says her son is confused and this will bring on outbursts and behavior that’s unacceptable. When his behavior isn’t acceptable, it’s good for whoever’s with him to talk about this with him and how there are more acceptable ways of handling his frustration rather than with outbursts or being mean. Explain, in very short sentences, how your son can change his behavior.

Anonymous says she’s begun to think of her son as mean, and even though she realizes this is unfair and unhelpful, it’s difficult for her to find evidence to the contrary. The Council says it’s not horrible that Anonymous notices her son is mean. This is exactly what she is supposed to be doing. When this happens, talk to your son about his behavior and teach him more desirable ways to get what he wants. This is what’s needed.

The Council suggests hand holding and touch will become important to her son. Go slowly. As you take the time, you’ll see progress. It’s an important lesson for everyone around your son to become kinder and more understanding. As this occurs you’ll begin to see positive changes because everyone that volunteered for this lesson will be learning.

In closing The Council encouraged us to keep up our good work, to which Bob replied that we’ll try. The Council laughed and quoted a great spiritual teacher (Yoda from the Star Wars movies) who says, “There is no try, there is only do.” And they add they will help us do.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us on ways to help deal with a child’s anger, and let us know how you feel about it.

What Is My Life Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Merry, who asks what her main purposes are for this lifetime, or if there’s a thematic purpose between all her lives.

The Council says it’s not necessary to know about past lives unless you’re working out something you’re trying to heal or experience and you need that extra bit of information. The reason you don’t remember your other lives is that it’s not necessary to remember them. You come into your current lifetime planning to concentrate on what you’re creating in your current lifetime.

The Council says we always have things from past lives that we work on in our current lifetime, but sometimes it’s not necessary to reach into another lifetime to find the answer, unless you’ve tried many things and still feel there’s something missing, or the answers to help you grow or see your path clearer aren’t happening without some other lifetime information.

The Council sees the main reason for Merry’s current lifetime is to meet a lot of people and try to see, especially if the people are difficult, beyond these peoples’ challenges, and to learn from this and then move on. They say she doesn’t intend for these relationships to be long lasting.

What was experienced when you were a child are experiences that are just passing. Can you look at your parents and other family members and see what you’ve learned? You are a spirit and don’t need to feel abandoned, less than, or unwanted. Look at each relationship and ask yourself what are you learning from it? Things that you’ve experienced that you might call negative, aren’t negative; they’re just experiences you want to learn from.

The Council says Merry’s current life is wide open and to just experience the in and out of her relationships. As she looks at her life this way, The Council says she’s able to have quite a bit of fun with it and learn at a quick pace, and then create different experiences that she’d like to bring into her current lifetime.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Merry and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What’s the Purpose of Nazi Holocaust Victim’s Suffering?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Juan, who asks if the spirits of the Nazi Holocaust victims were aware they agreed to be worked, tortured, and starved to death?

The Council says the spirits of Holocaust victims all volunteered to come into that lifetime to play those roles. They knew in spirit before they came there was going to be a mass crisis to teach millions of people what happens when you aren’t in the vibration of love.

The victims knew ahead of time it was going to be a difficult life, but they also knew that lifetime would create opportunities for learning for every soul who lived during that time. And the history that was made will be passed down to future generations who weren’t there to experience it.

Many spirits who where Holocaust victims held the light for everyone who was there. Many came to be with the children who were victims. These brave souls had no idea what they were going to face in that lifetime, but they knew they’d come through it with as much love and caring as possible.

Juan asks The Council, if the Holocaust victims agreed to the horrors they faced, what was the purpose of going through this? The Council says the purpose was to bring in more love and caring and to learn that no matter how bad things get, you have the choice how you’ll face your challenges. The victims found a way to feel love and take care of each other, and to believe more in something greater than themselves. And this lesson spread throughout the world.

Juan asks if the Holocaust was due to a karmic debt and The Council says there is no karmic debt. It was just souls that realized in this world that’s being created, what can we do to bring more love in?

Juan asks what possible benefit can come from the atrocities of the Holocaust? The Council says the benefit that we learn from the experience, never forget what happened, and learn you are so much more than what you think.

Juan’s last question is, what is the purpose of coming to this material dimension to suffer pain, anguish, and agony. The Council says we don’t come to Earth to suffer these things; we come to have a good time. And even though we go through horrible times, when we decided to go through this in spirit we weren’t afraid of it because we knew we’d be coming home to spirit again. This is something we’re going through to learn from. How will we help each other out while we’re here and what will we take back to spirit with us?

The Council closes by reminding us that you always come into the Earth reality with the thought that no matter what happens, I will find a way to show love and change the reality to a more loving one. What can I do to face these challenges? Will I remember who I really am as a spirit in a physical body? Will I choose joy and love? Will I be compassionate no matter what I’m going through? And when I bring more love into this reality, when my time there is over, I’ll have done what I set out to do.

Listen to our entire 12-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Juan and the rest of us on the Holocaust, 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.

Why Someone Would Choose to be Born with a Cognitive Disability

This post answers Pakt’s question for The Council about why someone would choose to be born with a cognitive disability. She works in a classroom with students who have these disabilities and read that people with Down Syndrome committed suicide in another lifetime.

The Council says people can choose a cognitive disability just for the experience and to understand what this feels like. In another lifetime if someone they knew had this disability and they didn’t show understanding and love, perhaps they’d choose to experience it in this lifetime and to see if they can bring love into it.

And sometimes people will choose a cognitive disability to teach the people around them about this disability. They do not choose to experience a cognitive disability because they’ve committed suicide in another lifetime.

Pakt says she always thought people choose to experience a cognitive disability so the rest of us can learn from these people as opposed to these people learning a lesson. The Council says these people with disabilities also learn. When we choose different experiences, whether they are happy ones or challenging ones, we also choose the people that will go through this with us because of what they want to learn and we can help them. But The Council says we always want to learn from having the experience of a cognitive difficulty or some other difficulty. There is a learning on everyone’s part.

Listen to this brief 2-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Pakt and the rest of us on why someone would choose to experience a cognitive difficulty in this lifetime, and let us know how you feel about it.

Son’s Anger Issues Related to Lifetime in Ancient Rome

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Lavender, who has an 8 year old boy with anger issues and she wonders why. The Council says this boy is hurting very deeply inside and at this point he doesn’t know how to feel love. He has a lot of mistrust and believes he must be alone.

The Council says your son is deeply affected by a lifetime in ancient Rome and he’s got a lot to heal from this lifetime. He was a slave who was taken to the arena where gladiators fought and was picked to be in charge of other slaves. This gave him safety, but turned the slaves he was friendly with against him.

He carries a lot of guilt from this Roman lifetime that he’s going to try and work out in his current lifetime. Your son has an authority problem in his current lifetime related to the lifetime in Rome, he has difficulty following orders, and he doesn’t like being told what to do.

The way you ask your son to do things will either create anger or give him understanding. Explain why, when you ask him to do the littlest thing and thank him for being a helpful part of your family. He needs to know he’s included and not alone. In his current lifetime he wants to know he can survive by being himself and being part of a family.

Lavender feels guilty for having this son when she was young and The Council says there is no use for this guilt. She needs to take part in helping her son heal the issues he’s brought into this lifetime.

Lavender asks The Council for advice on how to guide her son and The Council says their pre-birth agreement was that she would give him confidence and accept him no matter how he behaves in the moment. He needs an explanation how some of his behavior upsets her and why. And follow these explanations with reminders of the good he does.

Lavender says she recognizes in her son the same internal struggles she went through growing up. She is also resistant to authority figures. The Council suggests she explain to her son that she also doesn’t like to be told what to do. Maybe you can work on this together and bond over it. With understanding his mind will open, acceptance of how different things can be will begin to flood in, and clarity will come.

Lavender says she’s tried to teach her son things like the law of attraction, self empowerment, chakras, and meditation, and she says from this he became an elaborate storyteller. The Council says children have a great ability to astral project, remember their dreams, and travel to different dimensions. In your son’s case these stories aren’t made up. He is very psychic and intuitive and these are important tools for him as he grows.

The Council says many times your son is able to see from his third eye and he imagines other people can also do this. Encourage your son to talk to you about what he’s seeing and you’ll be surprised how he changes.

Treat your son with kindness, understanding, and love. Explain everything that’s asked of him. Explain when things annoy you and how you think about it and change it. Let him know how you want to teach him why he and everyone else is  here: to handle whatever challenges he faces, to acknowledge them, to work on them, and to turn them around with love.

Listen to our entire 18-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Lavender and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Why Did I Choose to Create a Heart Condition?

This post answers questions from a reader named Tee, who recently was diagnosed with a congenital heart condition, and she asks The Council if there’s a connection between her literal broken heart and her feeling she’s got an emotional broken heart?

The Council asks Tee to let go of her fear of the heart condition, and they say having her heart broken emotionally is connected to her physical heart condition.

The Council says Tee planned in spirit to have her physical heart condition so she’d face a challenge, learn how to live with it, conquer it, and not be in fear. They say she brought a lot of fear with her into her current lifetime that she wishes to heal, and working with her heart condition is one of the ways she can do this.

The Council says Tee can heal this fear if she thinks her heart condition is part of her spiritual plan. The Council asks as Tee changes how she thinks about her heart condition, is she able to also change her feeling and be grateful this condition has been discovered and she’s able to get the kind of help she needs. The Council says letting go of fear and focusing more on gratitude will help with Tee’s success in handling this condition.

Tee feels betrayal has been a major theme in her life. Her ex-boyfriend is now married to her ex-best friend and they cheated on her behind her back. She wonders why she chose to experience this?

The Council sees Tee has gone through similar cheating in a past lifetime with the same two souls as her current life. She created it this time to give her an opportunity to handle the situation differently. How these two behaved shined a light on this situation so Tee could be aware of it and then let it go. And because Tee wished to learn gratitude in this lifetime, she should feel grateful she’s no longer involved with these two people. This wasn’t the right relationship for Tee.

Everything Tee experiences as a challenge is something she’s created, and as she goes through each of these experiences, the lesson is for her to ask what good she sees in these? Is she grateful she can see it? And now she can create a better life.

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

A Past Life Connection with the Great Pyramid

This post answers questions from a reader named is SoulSeekingKnowledge, who says they’ve been drawn to the subjects of pyramids and Egypt since childhood. For the last few months they’ve been drawn to spiritual and metaphysical books and have a tremendous thirst for knowledge. They ask The Council if there’s any past life connection with pyramids or Atlantis. They feel like there’s a purpose in this lifetime connected to lifetimes in these places, but they’re not understanding the purpose.

The Council says this goes back to being in a school for priests in a lifetime in Egypt. At the age of 5 they were brought to this school for a life in the priesthood. Your main focus in this lifetime was on energy. As you grew you learned about medicine and the stars, and advanced quickly in your education. You began speaking about connecting with the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt, and that you were able to hear them and get information from them.

You trained to work in the Temple of Bast and of Osiris. As you learned more, you wished to become a teacher of younger students and show them how to develop their abilities. At a certain stage of this teaching, before you could formally become a priest, you had to spend 24 hours alone in a sarcophagus with the lid on inside the Great Pyramid. Many students lost their minds while trying to attempt this.

The Council sees you in the sarcophagus trying to work with the energy and staying calm for the 24 hours. Your mind opened more than ever and you connected with energy that gave you more information than you were able to understand and work with. When they came the next day to let you out of the sarcophagus, your mind had become very disturbed by what you experienced. It took you many years to come back to a level of wholeness where you weren’t afraid to be in the dark, be alone, or afraid to use your ability to hear and see beyond the reality most experienced.

While you had many interesting lives in Egypt, The Council sees this particular life with the sarcophagus is the one that’s effecting your current lifetime. You’d like to develop your psychic abilities and learn to meditate in your current lifetime, but you shouldn’t go too quickly. As you accomplish these skills, you’ll achieve what you intended in that Egyptian lifetime.

SoulSeekingKnowledge says in their current lifetime they have a fear of darkness or evil and hear strange things when they’re meditating, and they ask how to overcome these fears and progress in their meditations. The Council says the lifetime in Egypt with the sarcophagus helps explain these fears.

When you meditate now, The Council asks you to go very slowly so you don’t pick up negative energy or things that frighten you. Always remind yourself you are a strong and powerful spirit and you will let into your mind only things that travel in white light. You’ll only allow things to come to you that are acceptable and comfortable to you and all else cannot enter. Meditate on peace, wholeness, and love. If you think these thoughts before you meditate, your meditations should be much improved.

In an extended closing The Council wishes blessings to all who write questions and are able to follow The Council’s guidance. They say this guidance will help many more who have similar questions and they send blessings to all who find this guidance helpful.

The Council advises everyone on this path to share their knowledge, their love, particularly of our planet, the animals, minerals, and plants. Send love to everything and your life has to change.

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

Spiritual Aspects of Childhood Cancer

This post answers questions from a reader named Jolanda, who recently had a young boy in her family diagnosed with cancer. They’re a health-conscious family and they are in shock over the diagnosis. Jolanda asks The Council to shed some light on the spiritual aspects of cancer and particularly childhood cancer.

The Council begins by saying that cancer is a disease of fear, and it’s created for many different reasons.

They say in spirit we create many different challenges for ourselves when we are in our physical bodies. Some of these challenges are for ourselves, and some are to teach the people around us.

Sometimes we choose (as spirit) to experience cancer because we desire to teach on a larger level. We want to teach our parents or our family about fear, hope, and believing there is more than the physical.

As someone experiences cancer, how they face it is important. Often there’s a desire to go through it quickly and to show other people you have the ability to heal the cancer.

The Council says the main reason someone gets cancer is their spirit has either chosen to experience fear, or the spirit will be calm and the people around them will experience fear.

The Council says every challenge we experience in our lifetime is for the purpose of teaching everyone involved to turn towards love.

In response to Jolanda’s question about what the patient and his family need to learn from this experience, The Council says that in addition to learning to choosing love, they can begin to learn about faith, and that we are so much more than our physical bodies. They add that understanding we are greater than our physical body is the main reason many spirits are choosing to channel through people who are open to this.

The Council says you can cure yourself with your beliefs. You can cure yourself by knowing you are vibration and you can change everything with your thoughts. Know you are spirit and you are love. Love always conquers fear.

The Council says Jolanda’s relative came into this lifetime with the intention of curing the cancer. He should be shown love, not pity. He should be encouraged to feel happy, to enjoy himself, and love every one around him, including himself. This will bring him into the vibration of love that he needs to heal the cancer.

The Council says this is an experience for the family to go through, and everyone can pull their thoughts together and believe in the best outcome. Know that the vibration that heals the body comes from the vibration of love. Everyone around has volunteered (in spirit) to be part of this experience. Be upbeat. Know the situation is able to change for the better. As everyone in the family sees this child getting better, it must happen.

The Council says if there’s sadness and heaviness around the boy with cancer and he begins to think that way, he may not be able to overcome the cancer. Jolanda should be positive about her relative’s recovery, and she should feel it and send this vibration to the child. This will help him through this challenge.

The Council closes with some interesting thoughts about how every person has their own experience of the child with cancer. They recommend everyone in the family see and feel the boy getting better, and feel love and happiness that the child has the ability to do this.

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

Did My Soul Create a Congenital Deformation?

This post answers questions from a reader named Fernanda, who asks The Council (after reading our post on Choosing Childhood Abuse) if she was born with a congenital deformation because her soul chose to create it. Fernanda also asks if she chose to have everything she dreams of for herself, happen to the people around her in her life and not her. And she asks what she needs to learn about this.

The Council begins by saying that anything you come into this life with (including congenital deformations) is definitely planned by you in spirit.

The Council says her dreams for herself that happen for other people are to teach her about her beliefs that she doesn’t deserve to have these things so she can change these beliefs. Take a look at these beliefs. Does Fernanda think that a congenital deformity makes her less of a person and less of a spirit? Is there something that happened to her when she was a child that has her believe she can’t have whatever she desires?

The Council says Fernanda chose to experience many challenges in this lifetime and didn’t plan to have an easy life. Her plan was to find her strength in every challenge she created for herself and to work through these challenges. She will feel better and better about herself as she does this and eventually will find the connection to who she truly is as a spiritual being.

The Council asks Fernanda to change her perception of what’s going on in her life. Nothing is being created in her life by someone else. She is in charge (as a spiritual being) and she is creating what happens in her life. The reason she experiences these challenges is to find the strength to believe she is spirit in a human body.

She should take a look at just one thing that frustrates her and then she can begin to change these thoughts and feelings and experience them differently. And as she sees one thing change, she’ll be able to change another and another until her life delivers to her everything she desires that is currently happening to these other people.

Listen to our entire 4-minute recorded session (below) with The Council to hear all their guidance for Fernanda and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about this, or anything else you’d like to ask The Council.

Choosing Childhood Abuse

This post answers questions from a reader named, Marie, who’s had an abusive childhood. She asks The Council if a soul can choose a life of pain and suffering, because she can’t believe she’s chosen this for herself. Marie also asks about a strained relationship with her brother in response to our post, What’s is the Purpose of a Decade’s-long Strained Relationship with a Twin Brother.

The Council says when you (in spirit) choose a particularly challenging life experience, you don’t think it will be horrible. In spirit you think you’ll be experiencing this difficulty because you’re not feeling your connection to who you truly are as a spiritual being.

When you’re living a painful physical reality it’s because you’re not fulfilling your purpose in this lifetime, which is to experience this difficulty and then turn it around. You have called in this difficult experience for one reason: to change it.

The purpose of this difficulty is to think how much more you are than a human being in a physical body. It’s to turn your thoughts toward love, no matter what you’re experiencing. Love has the ability to change everything. We are all here for the single purpose of bringing love into our lives.

As you meditate on your situation and begin to understand it, you’re realize this difficulty isn’t a punishment you’ve created for yourself or that others are putting you through. You’ve chosen this experience to change it.

Some souls choose to experience difficult emotions in this lifetime. They call in other souls that have agreed to abuse them, and they have agreed to do this only out of love so you can have this experience and get on with your purpose, which is to change your experience to something better.

Sometimes we pick difficult challenges to teach people around us to see it and perhaps change, or for people to see what we’re going through and have compassion for us. You are awakening in other spirits the vibration of love and compassion because you’ve experienced this.

Marie says her mother was able to show love to her brother and concludes her mother must have agreed with her to show her rejection as part of her life experience. And The Council asks Marie what she’s learned from this? Has she learned not to reject other people and realize she deserves more? Move forward on your path, show love, and do good deeds for yourself and others. Stop the hurting and always look forward to doing good.

Marie says she can’t understand how violence to a child can raise consciousness and lead to an experience of love. And The Council says as she looks at what she’s gone through hasn’t she expanded, even a little bit, and learned how to move forward. The violence has served it’s purpose. You have expanded, even if you don’t think so right now.

On a different subject Marie says she’s tried for a long time to make a better relationship with her brother, but he remains distant. The Council says contact with Marie can bring up difficult memories of the past for her brother. He’s choosing to shield himself from these heavy memories for now.

The Council says changing the way Marie sees her relationship with her brother can make it less painful. He’s not in the same place as Marie and isn’t looking to question his past so much. To get past this, send him the pink vibration of love. As he allows himself to take this in, your relationship will change.

The Council asks Marie if she’s ready to let go of the abuse she’s gone through? Now look forward. What kind of life do you want to create? As long as you focus on the abuse, you won’t move forward and create a new life with caring and love.

Learn from what you’ve come through. Change the way you see your life experience. Think about how this has enlightened you and taught the people who went through this with you what they needed to learn. Create the life you desire. Go into the vibration of love, joy, and happiness and think about this more and more.

You are a brave soul and have come through a lot. Now you are the creator of the rest of your life experience. Meditate on this information repeatedly. Eventually a little light bulb will go off and the understanding will occur on a very deep level and the healing will happen.

Marie needs to know that she’s gone through what she (in spirit) wanted to experience. It’s not her job to think about how everyone else handled it. The abuse didn’t happen because there was something lacking in her. It was set up in spirit for her to experience in her physical reality and now it’s over. Now it’s Marie’s turn to create the rest of her life.

Listen to our entire 18-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Marie and the rest of us on this important subject of why we choose in spirit to experience abuse in our physical life, and let us know your feelings on the subject.

Having More Loving Thoughts About Her Husband

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named, Vacha, who’s asked questions about her relationship with her husband before. She and her young son have moved back to be with her husband (and her son’s father) after a separation due to Vacha feeling abused in their relationship. She says everything is going well so far, but she isn’t feeling happy deep inside and suggests she may be finding it difficult to forget her husband’s past behavior.

The Council asks Vacha if her purpose for moving back with her husband was to be open to trying her marriage again? They say if she focuses on what happened in the past, she’ll never move forward. They ask what Vacha can do to make their relationship better? What would she like to see her husband doing, and talk to him about these things.

Vacha says she’s going to begin meditating on what to do and she asks for guidance to have more loving thoughts and be in a more positive state of mind. The Council says to have more loving thoughts, think about what brought her and her husband together in the beginning of the relationship. When she looks at her husband now, look at him with the understanding that he’s also a spirit in a physical body going through his own lessons. Is he trying to make the relationship work?

The Council says the purpose of this challenge in their relationship is for her to bring love into the situation, change it with her thoughts, and turn the situation around. See her situation the way she desires it to be. Stop focusing on being unhappy. Find the happiness from the memories she has and try to bring this happiness into her life every day.

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

Confused About Relationship with Her Boyfriend

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the name, Ivygreat, about her confusing relationship with her boyfriend. When she tries to tell her boyfriend he’s done something to offend her and they need to talk about it, he twists her words and she ends up feeling worse.

The Council says one of the great lessons Ivygreat would like to learn in this lifetime is independence, living on her own, and being able to take care of herself.

Being with her boyfriend will show Ivygreat that perhaps it’s better to leave this relationship and become more independent, or does she wish to stay in this relationship and experience the unhappiness.

The Council feels if Ivygreat was to become more independent, be able to support herself, and not be afraid to go out on her own, this relationship will change.

Ivygreat is in a place where her boyfriend knows he is needed and she is sort of under his thumb. The relationship will remain this way until she finds a way to change it by doing what she can for herself.

The Council says Ivygreat’s boyfriend isn’t able to hear and understand what upsets her about his behavior. He imagines he’s being attacked when she tries to talk to him about these things. For the time being The Council advises holding back this criticism and not trying to explain what’s wrong. Instead The Council advises Ivygreat to let what she doesn’t like about her boyfriend to challenge her to grow.

The Council says as Ivygreat experiences how good it feels to be independent, this feeling good and the ability to meet the challenge and create what she wants will change the relationship for the better.

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