Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

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.

Should I Stay In My Marriage or Leave with My Child?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name SoulPeace, who says she needs to choose between staying in a marriage that isn’t working out well and trying to make it better, or walk out of the marriage with their child.

The Council asks SoulPeace what part they’re playing in this marriage? Is she adding to the difficulties that are coming up? When you step back and look at this relationship the major question is, why isn’t the marriage working? What do you need from this marriage and what are you bringing to it? Do you feel the love you felt in the beginning of this relationship?

The choice is always yours whether to leave the marriage or stay with it, but the work must begin within you first. Look at what you have without blame, then try to decide what you’d like your marriage to look like. If you can focus on the marriage working and be open to the positive changes, then you can make this marriage work. As you begin to change how you treat your husband, how you speak to him, and how you appreciate the little things he might do, The Council says you can stay in this marriage lovingly.

SoulPeace says she’s always been scared of living on her own and taking on all the responsibilities of caring for their child. She doesn’t feel the love for her husband the last few years. The Council asks if she’s able to partner with him in bringing up their child? Are they able to get together and have fun with this child so it has a more loving life? When you’re able to come together and take the focus off what the other person is doing wrong and you’re in the vibration of love and joy even though the focus is your child, you have the ability to make the marriage better.

SoulPeace says she feels like she’s with her husband because it’s the more traditional option and she’s scared to live on her own. She finds it difficult to forget the things that happened in the past. The Council reminds SoulPeace that it’s a choice to take the focus off the past. When do you let go of this? When do you begin looking forward instead of backward? Have you learned from the mistakes you’ve made? What have you done to prevent these mistakes from continuing? If you decide to stay in this marriage, but continue with blaming your husband and stay in the vibration of anger and hurt, you won’t be able to change your future so you have a happy life.

If you decide you want to save your marriage, try thinking the reason you’ve gone through the dissatisfaction in your marriage is that you and your husband agreed to come to this point and then ask yourself if you can turn your marriage around. If you decide to leave, what are the steps you’d take to support your child and live on your own just the two of you? See this how you want it to be rather than out of fear. Visualize how leaving could work for you.

SoulPeace says she feels like she’s coming back to the same point in the relationship over and over. She’d like closure to this and to move ahead in any direction which is best for her and her child. The Council asks SoulPeace if she’s truly looking for closure or does she want to fix the marriage?

To start closure The Council suggests SoulPeace imagine where she and her child would go and how you’d live. If you want to change your marriage for the better The Council suggests letting go of the past. Maybe your husband doesn’t know how to undo what was done or fix the marriage, but perhaps you can discuss moving forward. Can you leave the past in the past?

Discuss how you’d like your marriage to be. What does your husband want the marriage to be like going forward? When memories come of what your husband did or didn’t do in your marriage that hurt you, acknowledge the hurt and then say goodbye to those thoughts. After a while those thoughts won’t come as frequently. Yes these things happened, but now you have an opportunity to create the future differently. You have the power to refocus on a happier thought and create the life you desire.

The Council closes by saying SoulPeace has a lot of work to do and a wonderful journey in whichever direction she chooses.

Listen to the entire 10-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 how you feel about it.

You’re Already the Spirit You Desire to Be

This post answers questions from a reader named Darla, who says she’s heard the reason we’re here on Earth is to raise our vibration and become more like the source or creator. and she asks if we originally came from source, why aren’t we already at that higher level?

The Council says you’re already at this higher level of source, but when you agreed to come into this Earth reality and create your life, you agreed to come down to the lower energy that’s in this reality. And by sharing the vibration of love, understanding, and compassion, you bring this energy from source and spread it into this Earth reality in order to lift it up.

When you are born into this Earth reality there is a forgetfulness, but it’s always your intention, as you go through either a wonderful life or a challenging life, to get to a point where you can remember you are so much more than your physical body.

Often you find it difficult to believe you are spirit in your physical body, but your higher self provides you with many experiences of this and you start to believe there’s something more. When you think something and there’s a desire and you are happy, the right people, job, and circumstances come along. Maybe you’re not at the point where you believe you’re spirit, but you’re opening to the idea there’s something more than what you experience physically.

Darla says she can’t understand the point about all these lives and lessons. The Council says all these lives and lessons are created by her as a spiritual being. Sometimes you incarnate in order to have certain experiences. Sometimes you’ve already had this experience, but you agree to help other spirits who incarnate to deal with whatever this experience involves. This will provide you with a better sense of what you’re going through, but you may not remember it was your agreement to come in and help others.

Darla asks if we’ll ever reach a point of not having to return for more lives. The Council says this can happen whenever you feel you’re ready for that. The choice to come back and have life after life is entirely up to you. You can choose to remain in spirit and help others by sending them the vibration of love, happiness, and joy.

The Council makes clear that it’s up to Darla, in spirit, whether she incarnates on Earth or not. They say there’s no other way to get here. You have to agree in spirit that you want it. No one forces you. It’s always your choice.

Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Darla and the rest of us. We feel this session contains valuable information for anyone trying to make sense of there life. Let us know how you feel about it.

Where Do Souls Come From for Earth’s Increasing Population

In this post The Council answers questions from a reader named Audrey, who says around 1800 the Earth’s population was approximately 1 billion people and now the Earth’s population exceeds 7 billion. Audrey wants to know where the additional souls come from?

The Council says they come from different dimensions, different realities, and sometimes different living environments that are just emotional. They say there are many different places souls can be in to experience other lives. The Council adds that some souls decide to remain in the spiritual reality and help others from there, and they can choose to incarnate into a human reality on Earth when they need to experience something particular, to help someone, or to be supportive to our planet.

While The Council might not clearly explain to everyone’s satisfaction where the increase in souls is coming from, they’re clear that there’s not a one to one relationship between individuals living on Earth at any given time and the number of souls available to inhabit these human bodies. The Council says there are many more souls than can be accounted for in our Earthly reality.

Audrey also asks, as the human population increases and the wild animal population decreases, what happens to the souls of these wild animals? The Council says these souls, like human souls, also have other dimensions they can go to. They can also choose to reincarnate on Earth if they choose to have this experience. And they can reincarnate as other species.

The Council says everything that has a soul, goes on. There’s an ending to the life as we know it in our reality,  but the soul continues. There’s no ending.

Bob mentions he’s heard that animals have group souls, but not individual souls, and asks The Council about that. The Council says animals have both individual and group souls just like humans.

Avery asks if animals have the option not to reincarnate, and The Council says they always have this option.

The Council finishes by asking us to remember that all creatures on the Earth path have choices every minute of every day. Every soul has choices. Animals have the choice of how to respond to different humans. The animals’ lesson is always to show love. They have a stronger vibration of love than humans.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance about souls for Avery and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about this.

Son’s Anger Issues – Employment – Past Lives – and a Move

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name LearningSoulSite, about her son’s anger issues, her job, past lives, and a move for her family.

Son’s Anger

LearningSoulSite says particularly when her son is at home he gets angry and he’s difficult to control. The Council suggests looking at where her son is learning this anger from, and who else in her family reacts with anger.

LearningSoulSite asks The Council what her son’s lessons are in this lifetime and how she can help him. She has a feeling it’s got something to do with her husband’s lessons because she often notices similarities between the two of them. The Council begins by saying there’s a lot her son has seen but doesn’t understand, that is contributing to his disappointment. The Council says there’s a lot to understand here because this anger isn’t just about her son, but also about herself and her husband.

The Council says LearningSoulSite’s biggest challenge in this lifetime was to become independent. They feel her interactions with her husband don’t show this independence and she doesn’t always say what she’s feeling. Her son picks up on this tension of holding back her feelings. The Council advises LearningSoulSite to talk about what she truly feels. Don’t back down on her beliefs and how she desires things to be.

The Council says LearningSoulSite’s husband has chosen in spirit to be disagreeable and have a bad temper, but he makes this choice out of love for LearningSoulSite. When he’s being disagreeable, LearningSoulSite has the choice of going along with her husband or having the self-love to create what she desires, to be stronger, to be independent, and teach her son to speak what he believes and not back down out of fear.

A New Job

LearningSoulSite says due to visa-related issues she may loose her current job in the near future and asks The Council if she should stay in Engineering or take up writing or something else. The Council sees the necessity of finding another job and they say it will be easier if she stays in her current field. If she has a love for writing, practice it before she tries to earn her living from it. Do it for personal enjoyment right now and as her writing skill grows she can consider changing her field.

Past Lives

LearningSoulSite asks what kinds of previous lives her family has shared. The Council says in one of the lives that’s affecting her now, LearningSoulSite was a slave and had to go along with what was asked of her. Her current son was around her in this other lifetime, but not related to her. He has seen her pattern of ignoring her feelings and has chosen to come into her current lifetime to see her spirit grow by making decisions and learning the challenge of independence.

A Move for Family

LearningSoulSite says if she wants to continue working, her family needs to move to another country and asks The Council about the timing for this. The Council says it’s good for her to change her environment and learn to grow from these changes. It’s also good to teach her son it’s okay to move many times, that she can always succeed no matter where she is, and that it’s wonderful to meet new people. Her son will benefit from this move in the future if he decides to go down the road he’s planned for himself. If there’s an opportunity to move to another country, take it.

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

Learning Empathy Through Relationships

This post answers questions from a reader named Sarah, who contacted us recently about a friend who’s in love with her, but now refuses to speak with her. (We published Looking for a Meaningful Relationship in answer to that question.) Sarah recently had a relationship experience with a different man and asks The Council if she created this new experience to develop empathy for her friend she asked about earlier.

The Council says, yes, Sarah’s spirit called in a situation that is similar so she could see things from the opposite point of view.

Sarah says she’s developed deep feelings for someone who says he’s got a rare condition that causes him to be detached from a relationship. As she expressed her emerging feelings for him, he said he’s unable to feel anything.

The Council says this man is unable to have the same feelings Sarah has for him. They say this situation is similar to the other relationship where Sarah’s friend expressed love for her, but she didn’t feel love for him. And The Council says the man that she wants to have a relationship with now has made a personal choice to remain unattached, similar to Sarah and her original friend.

Sarah asks the purpose of the (so called) condition of the new man in her life. The Council says this is a condition of choice. He is able to decide to try and make this relationship work with Sarah. The Council advises Sarah to look carefully at what this man is saying about having a condition he’s unable to control. The Council says it’s a pattern in this man’s life when he doesn’t want to do something, to say it’s out of his control when it’s really his choice.

Sarah asks The Council if her current situation is providing the opportunity she wanted to create empathy with her original friend or is it more multi-faceted?

The Council replies that it’s multi-faceted, but it definitely also Sarah calling this new relationship in to understand how the man in her first relationship feels with her not returning his feelings. Now she’s created a situation where she’s involved with a man who’s not ready to return her feelings and this will give her some understanding and empathy for the man in the earlier relationship.

The Council asks Sarah if what’s going on in her current relationship is something she wishes to change into something more with her focus and desire. Or is this relationship something she understands and wants to go into further and learn additional lessons.

The Council suggests Sarah focus on what she perceives now and how she’d like things to be in the future. Send both men love on their journeys and accept these men the way they are. They are in Sarah’s life to teach her lessons and to bring out more empathy and more love for her to learn from. When Sarah is able to send this empathy and love out to others, it will change everyone.

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

Questions About Spiritual Enlightenment

This post answers questions about spiritual enlightenment from a reader named SoulPeace. SoulPeace has been reading about Buddhist culture lately and is drawn to the subjects of spiritual growth, human reincarnation, and lesson learning.

The Council says this is a big step in itself because SoulPeace has opened to enlightenment and knowledge that will help them move forward in their current lifetime and on an easier path.

SoulPeace asks The Council if we’re able to learn our lessons without being born on the Earth path? The Council says we need an Earth body to learn what we desire to learn when we choose to be born in a physical body. We come to Earth to learn about emotions.

There are other realities besides Earth where you experience only the energy shifts within you. You learn with your thoughts: both positive and negative. You don’t need a physical body.

The main reason we come to Earth is there is so much we desire to learn where we need a physical body to learn it. In other realities we can exist only as energy or thought forms and we are also able to learn in these non-physical realities.

When you’re back home in spirit, that is another reality. And many choose while in spirit to help people who choose to live in the Earth reality, and this is another place where you learn. You’re able to learn lessons without being born into a physical body, but these lessons are different from the ones you learn when you’ve chosen to be born in a physical body.

SoulPeace asked The Council how we can achieve freedom from being born into an Earth body and achieve moksha or nirvana (freedom from death and rebirth). The Council says every time you finish an incarnation it’s always your choice whether to come back in an Earth body or remain in spirit and not come back.

The Council says in spirit we always have the desire to come back and learn something on the Earth path. There’s always a new goal; something else that wants to be experienced.

If you decide not to come back, you’d remain in spirit and you’d learn through the experience of others who do come back. You’ll tap into their thoughts and feelings and continue learning that way. And sometimes by doing this, it strikes a chord in you where you think about trying the Earth path again.

SoulPeace closes by saying they’re trying to find peace for themselves and wants to know where to begin in order to experience this. The Council says you begin by knowing you are a spirit within your physical body that you’ve created. They say to see the things you’ve created in this life that helps you experience love and joy, and to follow that feeling and do more of these things.

As you experience one joy and it leads you to another and another, you will find what you planned to experience when you were in spirit before being born into your physical body. Know that your job is to experience love and joy and compassion for others, and the rest will all fall into place.

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

Relationship, Career, and Loving Yourself

This post is inspired by a reader who goes by the name LostSoul who was introduced to The Council by her mother, and now she’s asking The Council questions about her relationship, her career, and about loving herself.

LostSoul says she’s almost 25 years old and she’s living with a man who’s 21. They were together for 2 years, broke up for around 6 months when she pursued a relationship with someone she was unable to have a life with, and then got back together with her former partner. The Council says this was an experience that was needed and they ask LostSoul what she learned from this second relationship that she’s able to bring forward into her relationship with her original partner?

For a few months the relationship with her original partner was amazing. The Council says this is because she’s not the same person she was when she was with him the first time. She’s learned more of what she wants and what she doesn’t want from the other relationship. And there is a new hope that she can change her thoughts and create her relationship with her original partner the way she wishes.

But she’s been back with him for a little over a year and sometimes it’s still amazing, and sometimes her partner has too much to drink with his friends and makes choices that hurt LostSoul emotionally and she gets sick. He’s apologized for his behavior, but later behaves the same way again.

Currently LostSoul has told her boyfriend to stop drinking completely if he want to continue their relationship, and she says he has, but she asks The Council if she’s forcing her boyfriend to face personal issues he’s not ready to face. The Council says she’s giving him choices and that’s what this reality is about and this can be a positive thing. By accepting who he is she opens the door for him to accept himself, experience the love, and see how he wishes to move forward.

LostSoul says she’s haunted by the moments her boyfriend has hurt her, yet she wants to be in this relationship. The Council asks if she’s getting what she wants. As she looks for what she wants instead of seeing what’s not there, she’ll be able to create more of what she wants and she opens the door for more positive experiences. The Council reminds LostSoul that sending love into any challenging relationship will eventually change it for the better.

LostSoul asks The Council about her work as an au pair, which she says she does with a heavy heart because she’s unable to get an admin job due to lack of experience. The Council says what LostSoul wanted in this lifetime was to move around from place to place and they ask her to look for any kind of job that allows her to do this. She wanted to work outdoors, not indoors. And they say if LostSoul begins at the bottom of any job that gives her the experience of moving around, she’ll move forward.

Lastly LostSoul says it’s as if her soul is telling her to wake up and start loving herself and feel free. The Council says this freedom is the movement she wants to experience. As she dreams big she’ll create happiness and the love she wishes to have in a relationship with herself, and it will begin to show itself to her in her improved feelings. They advise her to have an open mind and heart and begin to show love to herself.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session on LostSoul’s questions for The Council to hear all their guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Feeling Guilty for Giving a Child Up for Adoption

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Miyam, who gave her newborn up for adoption, and now she’s feeling guilty, embarrassed, and ashamed.

The Council asks Miyam why she feels that way, because her situation was an unhealthy one and she chose to give this child to someone who was able to offer it a better home and a better life.

Miyam says there’s a negative outlook in society on pregnancy when the mother isn’t able to raise the child and there’s also a negative outlook when a mother chooses abortion. To this The Council replies it’s not Miyam’s place to get other people to understand what she’s going through. It’s for her to understand and learn how this can help her grow and change her life for the better. Does she stay and repeat the same lesson, or realize she’s in an unhealthy relationship and she’s done the right thing by putting this child up for adoption so it’s able to learn whatever it seeks to learn.

Miyam says this wasn’t the first child she gave up for adoption and she asks why her spirit planned this and why she allowed this to happen. The Council replies that it’s her choice to stay in this relationship and it’s her choice to repeat this lesson over and over again and they advise her to consider this perspective.

Miyam says sometimes she’s ready to give up on life and sometimes she thinks she’s was meant to allow these children to come into this lifetime to experience what they pre-planned. The Council says Miyam pre-planned to bring these children in, with the understanding between her and the souls of these children that if she was able to raise these children herself, she would. But there was also the understanding if she was unable to safely raise these children, she’d be able to abort the pregnancy or give the children up for adoption.

The Council recommends Miyam change the way she thinks about giving these children up for adoption. How wonderful it was to complete what they desired in spirit so she and the children can move forward. The Council points out Miyam is at a wonderful place once she’s able to understand she made the correct decisions for these children, and the sadness and guilt can be changed by how she thinks about her situation.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Miyam and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Overcoming Challenges, and Purpose in this Lifetime

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Kate who says she has no idea what her purpose on Earth is, which causes her much anxiety. She can’t seem to relax and enjoy being here.

The Council says Kate needs to meditate and needs to perform some grounding exercises to bring her more into this reality. Any meditation will do. Walking outside on grass or dirt in her bare feet will help her ground and pull in the energy of the Earth. Dancing will also help ground her.

Kate says she’s concerned about her future because she believes she’s unable to escape her bad habits and faults when it comes to work situations. The Council says there are never any bad choices, just choices that will bring you quickly to where you want to go, or choices that will take you a longer roundabout route.

The Council asks Kate what she’s learning? If she’s feeling stuck, what would make her feel unstuck? The Council recommends watching other people live their lives, seeing how this feels to her, and deciding what she feels she would like for herself.

When Kate says she sees the possibilities in life, but doesn’t have the courage or self-discipline to pursue them, The Council points out this is a choice that Kate is making. And as long as she believes she doesn’t have the discipline to pursue these possibilities, that is what she’ll keep creating in her life. Her thoughts and beliefs are creating what she brings into her life.

The Council says of course Kate has the courage and ability to change her life and discover what she wants because she is more spirit than she knows, with limitless power, understanding, and love to create what she wants. With meditation her beliefs will begin to change, the courage to try many things will come, and the feeling of being stuck will gradually decrease.

In past lives Kate’s desires were taken away and it’s difficult in this life to believe there aren’t authority figures that will put her down. But that was then and this is now, and she’s here to see how much she can create and take her life in the direction she wants. Meditation will give her clarity. She will feel the answers more than think them. And she will grow and know which direction she wishes to take her life.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council to hear all their answers for Kate and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Are All Abortions Pre-planned in Spirit Before Birth?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the name Mangojuice13, who previously asked questions about her abortion. Mangojuice13 points out in her current comment that in several of our posts The Council has said abortions are always pre-planned, but in a previous post answering Mangojuice13’s questions we wrote that all abortions aren’t pre-planned, and she asks us to explain this apparent discrepancy.

In our session to answer Mangojuice’s current questions The Council says when a woman becomes pregnant this is pre-planned and there are basically three options concerning abortion and it’s pre-planning in spirit. The first option is the desire to experience an abortion in this lifetime and The Council says this is definitely pre-planned in spirit. The second option is the desire to have the baby, in which case this is also pre-planned. The third option is to become pregnant, but to pre-plan the option to abort the child or have the child. In this case there is an agreement in spirit by all parties concerned to wait and see what the circumstances are at the time of the pregnancy and to make the decision at that time.

Mangojuice13 asks The Council if the soul of the child she aborted will return to her in a future pregnancy or will it be a different soul? And The Council says what they see is this soul moving on, and if there’s another pregnancy it will be a different soul.

Mangojuice13 asks The Council what the soul she aborted is currently doing. And The Council says going to school, planning another lifetime, and helping others in our lifetime. They say there are many things going on at one time for spirits in the spirit world.

Mangojuice13 asks The Council if her aborted child was going to be a male or a female? And The Council says there wasn’t a decision made by this soul regarding it’s gender. When Bob expressed confusion about this The Council said in this particular case the soul did not have plans to be borne and didn’t make the decision whether it would be a male or a female. They said usually the decision is made by three months into the pregnancy, but they have seen circumstances where this isn’t the case and they say it’s up to the soul that’s being born.

Lastly Mangojuice13 asks The Council how many children they see her having in this lifetime. And The Council says at this particular time they see one child, but they add that it’s possible for Mangojuice13, depending on her desire, to recreate this and have less or more children. Bob asks if there’s a preference for a male or female child and The Council says it seems like there’s a preference for a male at this time.

Listen to our entire 12-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Mangojuice13 and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

A Jealous Partner or Travel?

This post is inspired by a reader named Kelly who has several questions for The Council. First she asks about her 7-year old boy who has a physical tick disorder because Kelly and her son’s father (who she’s apparently separated from) have extremely different religious views – he’s a Jehovah’s Witness and she believes in magic.

The Council suggests keeping calmness around her son at this time and giving him more attention. He needs stability that he’s not feeling right now. Give him a peaceful environment and show him love. And it is very important to teach him about the many different religions in this world and experience their different beliefs. This is something he’ll use later in life.

Kelly had a miscarriage recently and she asks why, and if she’ll have another child. The Council says it was agreed upon in spirit if she, her partner, or her child had a change of heart about this pregnancy it would be acceptable to end it. In this case the soul of the child decided it wasn’t able to learn what it needed to learn by coming into Kelly’s life and decided to miscarry. And The Council says they do see another child is possible.

Kelly has had dreams about having a child and she asks how important they are. The Council says sometimes a dream has pieces of information about problems during your day. And sometimes when you have a dream you cannot forget and is crystal clear to you day after day as if you’re currently experiencing it, there is a very important message in that dream, and as you give this dream more attention you will learn what it’s trying to show you.

And Kelly asks about the man she’s currently involved with and whether she should give up her professional plans for travel because of her partner’s jealously. The Council suggests reviewing this relationship and deciding whether Kelly is truly happy in it or not. If she thinks they have the patience for each other, keep focusing on the happiness they can experience. And when the doubt comes, acknowledge it and refocus on how you’d like your life to be. Or does she prefer the freedom of traveling, learning, and perhaps bringing someone else into her life. Only she can make this decision.

Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council on Kelly’s questions to receive all their guidance, and let us know what you think.

Am I Meant to be a Mother?

This post is inspired by several follow-up questions from a reader named Carolyne on our post about whether her 3 previous abortions were the same spirit.

First Carolyne asks if everything that’s happening to her is pre-planned or happening by chance. The Council says particularly the fun things and the difficult things are pre-planned to help her with the lessons she wished to learn. When Bob asked if some things aren’t pre-planned but are decided in the moment, The Council replied that the subjects Carolyne is asking about are all pre-planned by her as a spiritual being.

Carolyne says she’s in a relationship that others think is wrong for her. And The Council says the way to tell if a relationship is right for you is if you find happiness and growth, and feel love for yourself and your partner.

Carolyne asks the reasons behind her 3 terminated pregnancies because she doesn’t want to repeat what she considers these mistakes again. The Council sees this comes from another lifetime of great struggle and poverty in China where she had 7 children. In her current lifetime they recommend Carolyne look carefully at whether she desires to have children or the freedom of not having children, and they emphasize there is no right or wrong path.

Carolyne asks how she can keep from terminating a pregnancy again. And The Council suggests Carolyne think about what she really wants in her life and take the steps to change this.

Carolyne asks if the spirits she aborted are sad for cutting their lives short. And The Council replies, of course not. These spirits recruited themselves to play this part for her. There is nothing to forgive. There were no wrong moves. These spirits will only wish Carolyne love.

Listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council to answer Carolyne’s questions and to receive all their guidance for her and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Whether to Abort at Almost 42 Years Old?

This post is inspired by a comment from Diana, who’s experiencing an unplanned pregnancy at almost 42 years old, but is contemplating an abortion for financial reasons. She says she’d like to have a family, but she’s afraid of a life of struggle and poverty with a young child, and she asks The Council for any insight that might help her.

The Council says if Diana wants a family in this particular lifetime, this is her chance. And they tell her this so that later on she doesn’t regret giving up this opportunity. But at the same time The Council advises Diana there’s absolutely nothing wrong with choosing not to bring a child into a life where poverty might be the only option if this is her choice.

The Council says they see the soul of this child has agreed to come to Diana this one time only. It isn’t likely to return. They say whether she chooses to abort the pregnancy or not, either way will be the correct choice. And they say the soul of this child knows it’s here for Diana to either abort it, or if she chooses to bring it into this lifetime, it has things it would like to experience. The choice is Diana’s, and each path will have lessons and experiences for her.

The Council says the poverty is something that her and her partner chose to experience in this lifetime. Staying with this partner it’s good to think where their path can go now and then begin to create the change they would like to have. This is something The Council recommends whether they decide to have this child or not. The inner work they do will bring them to outer experiences that will help them change. And The Council says if they decide to have this child, there will be time during the pregnancy to experience these changes.

The Council says no matter what they teach, and how they show us there are many paths in front of us, the choice is always ours. No one can make the choices for us. Go in the direction of love and you’ll see your answers come to you. Let go of fear. As you raise your vibration you will see the changes you wish, the understanding you need, and the clarity to see what’s going on.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Diana and the rest of us.

How Can I Stop My Eye Spasms?

This post is inspired by a question from Carmela, who asks The Council how she can get her recent eye spasms to stop. One of the things that makes this question interesting is Carmela’s focus on physical symptoms and The Council’s ability to tune into what’s causing them.

The Council says an eye doctor isn’t the one to help Carmela at this point, and they ask her to look at her life and see if she feels any extra stress when the spasms began about 5 months ago. Physically Carmela has created a subluxation (or misalignment) of her C2 and C3 vertebrae in her neck, but The Council says this is caused by an emotional thought of something going on in her life.

The Council asks Carmela what is it she doesn’t want to see, understand, or move forward to in her life since the spasms began? The Council recommends massage, acupuncture, and/or chiropractic adjustments to help her physically with her eye spasms. But for more permanent results Carmela should look at what’s coming up in her life on an emotional level.

When Bob asked The Council for more details about the emotional aspects of Carmela’s eye spasms, they said there’s several things going on, but the situation will resolve more quickly if Carmela is able to find the answer herself. And while the massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic will provide needed physical relief, The Council stresses again the importance working on the emotional aspect of this problem to keep it from reoccurring.

Since we chose to answer several readers’ questions during this session, we’ve included The Council’s wrap-up at the end of the session with each question we post. During this wrap-up The Council advises all of us to go in the direction of our heart and the direction of love to become more clear on what’s really going on in our life.

Listen to the entire 6-minute session (below) to hear The Council’s full guidance for Carmela and the rest of us.

How Can I Overcome the Shame of Being Bullied?

This post is inspired by a question from Megan, who asks The Council how she can overcome the shame of being bullied in high school.

The Council recognizes the pain Megan experiences from being bullied and they say it’s her choice whether to continue replaying these memories, which will create more of this pain, or she chooses to change the focus of her thoughts to love. The challenge here is for Megan to recognize who she is as a loving spirit and go deep within herself to feel the love, without approval from others, no matter what’s going on in her life.

The Council says it’s good for Megan to read books about past lives and books about people who’ve come to know through mediums how they create difficult lessons in their lives with the understanding it was all pre-planned so they could learn from turning their life around. They say as Megan becomes more aware of how and why she created the bullying, the pain will become less and it won’t be necessary for her to experience these feelings.

Listen to the recording of our entire session with The Council on Megan’s question to experience the full impact of their guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Guidance for a Potential Romantic Relationship

This post is inspired by a follow up question from a reader named Gabriela who asks for guidance about the romantic feelings she has for a woman named Lara who Gabriela mentioned in her last question. She says despite plenty of synchronicities nothing has happened with Lara, and Gabriela was told by someone the reason for this was that she didn’t deserve the pain Lara would bring into her life, which was difficult for Gabriela to believe because Lara seems like such a nice woman.

The Council says Gabriela is already experiencing the pain and sadness of a relationship with Lara because they aren’t together. They ask Gabriela to change the focus of her attention because they see it’s possible to have the relationship she desires, but they say it will never happen as long as Gabriela is focused on the idea that Lara will bring pain into her life.

The Council says if Gabriela changes her belief that Lara will cause her pain, she’ll be able to create the relationship she desires. But The Council also says if Gabriela finds it easier to let go of her desire for a relationship with Lara, they do see another partner for Gabriela.

The Council says Gabriela’s pre-birth plan was to have a relationship with Lara, but because Gabriela believes this relationship will cause pain and sadness, she’s creating this in her life right now by keeping her out of this relationship.

If Gabriela can change the way she sees this relationship with Lara so that it’s a good relationship rather than a painful one, she can have that good experience. The way Gabriela chooses to believe her relationship with Lara will be is the way she’ll experience it. The Council adds Gabriela can also create an additional relationship with another partner that they mention earlier in the session.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Gabriela and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

An Abortion and the Questions about Change it Inspired

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Nacole, and the questions her abortion prompted her to ask The Council.

Nacole starts by saying she’s read the bible most of her life, prayed over everything, and was very judgmental toward women who had abortions because she thought it was selfish. But today she had an abortion and she surprisingly finds herself at peace. The Council interjects here it’s wonderful how Nacole realizes she was judgmental about something she was unable to accept, and how in spirit she set up going through an abortion so she could learn something new about this experience.

Nacole says she felt the father of her last child was her soulmate, but he left when she was seven months pregnant and she’s been devastated by this. Her current pregnancy is with a man who’s in a relationship with another woman and he disappeared when Nacole told him she was pregnant, which she expected. And so she decided to abort this pregnancy rather than go through it alone.

Nacole says she’s home now after the abortion and she was prepared to battle suicidal thoughts and extreme fatigue, but they never came. She can’t explain it, but she feels love rather than guilt or pain. She’s been thinking about the baby she aborted and all she can do is smile at the thought of her. And she feels an unexplainable impulse to make changes in her life life like stopping smoking, reduce her alcohol consumption, lose weight, and get rid of bad relationships with people who treat her poorly.

When Nacole used Google to get information about what she was feeling, she came upon our website and was pleasantly surprised by the stories of other women’s abortions and how much they reminded her of what she was experiencing. And she asks The Council six questions.

Nacole wants to know how difficult the process of changing her life will be. And The Council says, as difficult as she believes. They say Nacole planned this abortion in spirit to teach herself about her beliefs and her judgements towards other people. And The Council tells Nacole her calmness and very little cramping and bleeding is coming to her because the child she aborted is a very strong soul who is sending her love to get her past this part of her life.

The Council advises Nacole to focus on bringing one change at a time into her life. Acknowledging the changes she desires is the first step. Focus on what she desires rather than the difficulty of the change. And The Council advises Nacole to see nothing is permanent, everything can be changed, the direction of this change is her choice, and she shouldn’t give up.

Nacole asks The Council what will happen if she fails bringing these changes about, and The Council replies there is no failure. The only way Nacole can fail is if she gives up all her dreams, and they don’t see this happening.

When Nacole asks if she’ll ever get over her relationship with the father of her two year old daughter and find someone new, and The Council says why not. It’s her choice. That relationship wasn’t going in the direction she desired, so create from that point forward. Ask yourself what type of person you want to be with. Find a match in your mind and your feelings and you will easily forget what didn’t work out in this previous relationship and create a new one.

Nacole asks how the abortion can be changing her thoughts and beliefs so quickly, and The Council says it’s because she’s now tuned in to her higher self and this is what she planned in spirit before birth.

When Nacole asks why she doesn’t feel guilty about the abortion and The Council asks how she can feel guilty when she is feeling peace and there is understanding of how life can change.

And Nacole’s final question is will the spirit of this child she aborted come back to her in this lifetime, and The Council says they see this spirit moving on. What they’ve created together in this lifetime was enough for both of them to learn from and they both have different experiences they wish to learn now. But they emphasize Nacole will always be able to experience the love from this spirit even though they are both moving on.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council (below) to receive their guidance for Nacole and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

What to Do with a Medium’s Scary Guidance

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Delfos who had an abortion about a year ago and felt very sad about it until recently when she started to feel better and clearer.

The Council sympathizes with Delfos and says it’s sad in our reality when we feel an abortion ends a connection with a soul we love. But for all abortions The Council says there is an understanding and an agreement between your soul and the soul of the fetus. You never lose that connection and there is no ending.

Recently Delfos was told by another medium that the aborted child was a girl who is very angry and sad because she wasn’t allowed to come into this life. The Council asks Delfos why this spirit would be angry for not being born when it beautifully planned with her in spirit to be aborted before they both were born? Why would this soul be angry when it is back in spirit where there is no anger, only joy and love? The Council is clear with Delfos that she was following a path that she mapped out with this spirit and her decision to abort wasn’t wrong.

When Delfos says she told this medium that she only felt love and acceptance from this aborted soul The Council enthusiastically suggests she hang on to that feeling. But Delfos says the medium tried to make her feel guilty and says she needed additional sessions to release this soul. To this The Council replies why would Delfos go back to this person who made her feel guilty and uncomfortable. And The Council adds this was just an experience Delfos created and now she can chose to accept it or not.

At this point Bob suggests Delfos might go back to this medium because she thinks the medium will be able to remove her guilt. And The Council replies only Delfos can choose to let the guilt go and hold onto the love this aborted spirit is sending her. That is what she needs to focus on. And The Council adds this aborted spirit is very much at peace and in joy, and still is sending Delfos love.

Delfos says this medium told her if she doesn’t solve this situation she won’t be able to get pregnant again, or that her future child will be angry and messed up. To this The Council says they feel Delfos knows much better than to believe this.

When this medium tells Delfos she has personality problems and her dead grandmother is worried about her, The Council says there is no worry in spirit. Spirit sees what we choose to experience and sends us love to help us through whatever we choose to go through. There is nothing wrong with Delfos.

The Council explains that Delfos attracted this medium into her life as a challenge whether to feel fear and stay in it or know better and choose to feel the love and remember her connection with this aborted spirit. It’s a situation that Delfos created so she could see the opposite of love and then remember she and her aborted child are pure love.

Listen to the 11-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Delfos and the rest of us. And feel free to ask The Council a question that’s been on your mind.

Can I Have A Long-term Romantic Relationship?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Gabriela, who is nearly 30 years old and has never experienced a long-term romantic relationship, but wants to badly.

Gabriela says she made a spiritual agreement with someone to be her partner in this lifetime, but they didn’t come through. And The Council responds it’s not definite that this person would show up or stay in Gabriela’s life. They say what Gabriela and this person create with their thoughts will turn their relationship one way or another during this lifetime.

The Council says it’s important to understand that you create every situation that happens in your life and that no one can push you in a direction that you, as a spiritual being, don’t want to go in. The purpose of this life is to learn who you are, that you have choices, and that you are a powerful creator.

Gabriela says she’s alone, bitter, and not interested in living anymore. And The Council asks why she’d want to throw away what she’s created because of what she’s experienced at this time. They remind her she’s able to change her circumstances because she’s the creator of her experience, and they advise her to create what she wants.

The Council says if you aren’t in the vibration of love and appreciation for yourself, you aren’t in the vibration of attracting the type of person you’d like to be with. Gabriela set up in spirit that she’d go through many relationships that are not what she desires so she’d have to learn to love herself.

The Council says she has a strong spirit to choose this challenging path. If Gabriela begins to think about her good qualities, begins to love herself, and knows what a loving partner she’s capable of being, they say she will raise her vibration and bring this in.

The Council says we usually have a desire to create things in our lives where we feel we could have done better in our past lives. That’s the purpose of each reality we create. And they add that there’s nothing we create that is wrong. We create it in order to have the experience of it and then improve it.

Ask yourself what loving feelings you can bring to your current experience. When you shift your thoughts to love, your vibration changes and it’s felt by everyone around you. And this is how to get what you want.

Listen to our entire 16-minute session with The Council on Gabriela’s questions (below) to receive their full guidance for her and the rest of us.

Guilt Over Terminating a Pregnancy

This post is inspired by a question from Vacha about a planned termination of her pregnancy. (We previously posted our session with The Council on Vacha’s question as a single track with minimal comments because Vacha had an appointment the next day to have the abortion and we wanted her to hear the session as quickly as possible.)

Vacha says the abortion feels right to her, but she feels guilty about not giving her baby a chance to live. She has read and listened to several of our other posts on abortion and feels comforted by the thought that this abortion could be planned by her spirit and the spirit of her child, and she asks The Council for information about this.

The Council begins by reminding Vacha that choice is her most powerful tool and this abortion was a choice she planned in spirit before she came into this lifetime. She wanted to make the decision to abort based on how she felt rather than on the opinions of other people.

The Council says Vacha planned in spirit to get pregnant so she could find the strength to wake up to who she truly is as a spiritual being and what she wants in her life. They say the spirit of this child chose to help Vacha become more dependent on herself, her beliefs, and what she wants. The Council encourages Vacha to make her choice knowing it’s what the two spirits planned, and to think about how this abortion will change her life.

When Vacha feels there’s a problem with her health or when she feels there are ongoing issues with her husband, the purpose of this pregnancy is to help her look at these issues and think about how she’d like to change them in her life.

Vacha should begin to plan how she’d like her life to be. The Council says the question here is not whether she should terminate this pregnancy. The agreement between her spirit and the spirit of the child was made because Vacha needs to wake up to the life she was living, decide what would make her choose to live her life differently, and look at the bigger picture.

As Vacha prays and meditates, she should begin to feel the presence of the child’s spirit, the love, support, and light it will continue to send her so both spirits can continue to move forward on their journeys.

The Council advises Vacha to let go of any guilt she has about terminating this pregnancy. She and the spirit of the child are following a plan that was made and has brought her to the exact point both spirits wanted. Now she is to create what she wants in her life moving forward.

Listen to the recording of our entire 16-minute session with The Council (below) to get their complete guidance for Vacha and the rest of us.

What Is My Purpose in This Lifetime?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Dianna, who asks The Council what her life purpose is. Diana has been training as a teacher and teaching overseas for the past 5 years. She says she knows we all make soul contracts before we come into this life, and asks what she’s supposed to be doing or learning in this  lifetime.

The Council begins by saying many souls incarnate with a soul contract to accomplish specific things they’re interested in experiencing. And there are other souls who wish to create their lives as they go along, without pre-planning before birth what they want to accomplish.

We all plan to bring the vibration of love into our lives, have fun, and not take life so seriously, but this second group of people are free to decide within their current life how they wish to accomplish this rather than pre-planning ahead of time. And The Council says Dianna is one of these souls who wished to create her life as she went along.

Although these people don’t pre-plan what they want to accomplish, they have in common with all souls the desire to learn about an emotion like love, abandonment, sadness, shame, grief, or loneliness, and to turn the difficult emotions around with love.

The Council says Dianna’s purpose in this lifetime is to experience as much as she can and to bring love into these experiences. They say to look for clues in what she wants to do by examining her teaching experiences and the work she did before she taught to see what brought her the most joy. Or she can already have ideas about what she’d like to try but hasn’t gotten around to? And they say Dianna wanted to be a bringer of light, understanding, joy, love, and support for those people she meets along her path.

It’s good for Dianna to work within a community and teach about nature if she hasn’t gone in that direction already. The Council says as she prepared to enter this lifetime there was a great desire to travel and to help the people she met who needed someone to uplift them and give them a new perspective on what they were experiencing.

Even when we make a pre-birth contract and experience our reality the way it was planned, at all times we have the ability to change this pre-planning. With this ability Dianna has the freedom to focus on a particular career, or travel more as she feels the desire to move on. The Council says the choice is always there.

Dianna was able to connect with the spirit of trees and plants and had a green thumb in other lifetimes and this is able to be experienced again in this lifetime as a career or as a hobby. The Council also see more travel would be good for Dianna because that is what was desired. But they add if she finds herself someplace she doesn’t want to move from, this is fine because there wasn’t any plan to live her life a specific way.

Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Dianna and the rest of us.

Can The Council See Any Blocks To My Getting Married?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who calls herself Dealer99 who says her life has been blessed with a few amazing love relationships, but she’s been patiently waiting a long time for a marriage relationship. And she asks The Council if they see any blocks to her getting married.

The Council asks Dealer99 if a marriage is what she really wants because they see another lifetime in the 1600s where she was forced into an arranged marriage and she was very unhappy. And they say in this lifetime she wanted to be free and to experience love everywhere she went.

Now The Council sees there is a desire for a long-term relationship in Dealer99’s life and they say she is able to change her life by feeling grateful for each of the relationships she’s had and imagining all the reasons she’d like to be married. They say there is nothing in her way and there are no blocks to stop her from getting married.

The Council encourages Dealer99 to focus on the benefits of being with one person rather than being excited by new relationships. They say the only thing that would stop her from experiencing a marriage is a belief that there’s a block that’s in the way, and that she doesn’t have the spiritual ability to create what she now desires.

The Council says even though Dealer99 planned to experience this lifetime without getting married, it is always within her power to change this. And they see a marriage has a great possibility of happening if she uses her imagination to change her beliefs and sees what she wishes to create.

The Council recommends several things Dealer99 can do in her physical reality to help her create this marriage. They say she can put empty hangers in a closet with the intention of them belonging to her partner. She can make an empty drawer available for her partner when he comes into her life. She can set her table for two and have an extra bathrobe available for her future partner. The Council encourages Dealer99 to have fun with her imagination to create this new relationship. And they say as the creation comes from within her, it will appear in her life.

Listen to the entire 7-minute session with The Council below to receive their full guidance for Dealer99 and the rest of us on how to create what we desire.

How Can This Darkness Leave My Past?

This post is inspired by a reader named Linda who says she was involved in some occult rituals before she found God, and she asks The Council if psychics are able to see her past, forever? She says someone performed a sexual energy ritual on her that she believes has “forever devastated me”, and she’s concerned because psychics say they’re able to see this and it makes them sick.

Linda says she doesn’t have any part of that life anymore, but The Council says she does have part of this in her life because each time she focuses on what happened, she is bringing this experience into her life.

The Council says no one can do any sort of ritual and put any sort of energy on you if you do not believe it and allow it. They say most humans would go into fear and believe they’re powerless under these circumstances, but The Council says this in not true. They encourage Linda to feel her power, begin to believe who she is as a spiritual being, and understand this was an experience she has passed through and has now chosen another way. And they say nothing ties Linda to this person and the ritual she participated in except her belief that it continues to effect her.

The Council says everything  that happens to you is because of what you believe and they recommend Linda change her beliefs about this ritual. See it as an experiment she chose to go through, but no longer needs in her life. If Linda believes the results of this ritual are hanging around her she can think of these energies drifting away and focus on her new path with God.

The Council says because Linda believes this ritual is still affecting her, she’ll bring people into her life that will say they see this energy until she realizes this is no longer needed. But The Council says it was important for Linda to have this experience so she could come to the understanding she’s strong and she can chose. And The Council says if Linda begins to change her thoughts and finds more joy with her God, her energy will become lighter, she’ll feel better, and people will no longer see evidence of this ritual.

When Linda asks if this experience can be removed from her, The Council says as she truly finds forgiveness she’ll understand this was an experience that was needed by all concerned and she’s passed through this. Concentrate on what makes her feel strong: her God, love, and joy. This is what will help her remove the unwanted effects of this ritual.

The Council sees Linda has a fear the effects of this ritual will be with her the rest of her life and they say the more she thinks of it, the more she’ll keep that energy around her. They say a big lesson in this lifetime for Linda is not to have the thoughts and opinions of other people affect her. She should find the strength to release this by herself by staying in the vibration of love. That is what The Council sees is necessary now, and they say they will always be there to help her.

Are All Abortions Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who goes by the name, MangoJuice13, who asks: Are all abortions an agreed upon contract between souls before birth?

MangoJuice13 read our post, Was I Correct in Aborting My Pregnancy?, and was interested to learn the reason for the abortion in that post was to challenge a woman named Laura to see how people swayed her opinion or pushed her to do something she didn’t want to do. MangoJuice13 says she’s in a similar situation.

She made a decision to abort out of fear after her partner pressured her. She says she feels guilty and angry, and wishes she had chosen differently. And she asks: What was the purpose of this abortion and what lesson was it meant to teach her?

The Council says all pregnancies are agreed upon in spirit before birth, but all abortions are not pre-planned. They say sometimes the abortion is pre-planned in spirit. And sometimes the souls agree to come together in a pregnancy, look at what is going on in their reality, and decide then whether to abort the fetus or not. And the soul of the fetus lovingly understands and accepts whatever decision is made.

The Council says MangoJuice13’s abortion was the opposite of what’s been discussed often on our blog. In this situation the soul came forward in spirit and said it wanted to experience being aborted, just living in the womb and not coming into this reality. After the soul expressed the desire to experience abortion, MangoJuice13 stepped forward in spirit and said she would help this soul experience this. This was not a situation where MangoJuice13 wanted to experience an abortion to learn something. It was to help another soul have this experience.

The Council asks MangoJuice13 to now look at her relationship with her boyfriend and figure out if it’s the right relationship for her going forward. And to ask if the people around her are supportive, or are they not allowing her to be who she wishes to be. The Council says that is what she wished to experience.

The Council sees MangoJuice13 developing strength, making a decision to get pregnant again, and deciding if it will be with her current boyfriend or another. And that was a purpose of this experience.

Listen to the entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to answer MangoJuice13’s question and receive the benefit of their full guidance.

Is My Pregnancy a Mistake?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who gives the name, Anon. She’s recently found out she’s pregnant after trying for 18 months, but now is afraid this pregnancy is a mistake. The same thing happened 18 months ago, but she miscarried. Anon says she’d never have an abortion, but keeps asking the soul to leave because she’s afraid having a child now will upset her family’s “lovely life”.

The Council begins by telling Anon a good question to ask herself is why she’s been trying to get pregnant if she feels the same way about this pregnancy as she felt when she miscarried 18 months before?

Anon says she wanted a sibling for her daughter, but now she’s scared. The Council recommends she practice changing her thoughts from fearful ones to ones of this child adding to the family’s happiness and increasing the family with love. They feel this is what Anon planned as a soul before she was born, but The Council adds there isn’t any reason for regret or anxious feelings if she doesn’t give birth to this soul.

The Council says when you create in spirit you have an idea what you’d like to experience in your human life. Once you are here you forget what you planned and this reality gets in the way. They say perhaps Anon has changed her mind because there is so much fear and she doesn’t know how to get past it.

The Council says to get past the fear Anon must come from the vibration of love. And they say she has the choice in every moment to stay in the fear, or imagine she’s ready to expand on the love she has with her family by giving birth to this child.

The Council says if Anon allows this spirit to be born, she is on one path these souls agreed to. And if she decides not to have this child, this was also part of the agreement. The Council says there is love in both decisions and Anon needs to stay in this vibration of love whatever direction she decides to take.

The Council says currently this child has no plan of miscarrying. They say if Anon tells this soul every day she’s changed her mind and doesn’t want the child to be born, she can cause a natural miscarriage. But they repeat that from their point of view this child currently plans on being born.

The Council repeats if Anon is determined not to go forward with this pregnancy, this is perfectly alright. But they also say Anon and this soul have been together in other lifetimes, they have many lessons they wish to learn together in this lifetime, and if this soul comes into this reality it will give Anon a lot of strength and pleasure.

The Council says Anon is experiencing the fear of the unknown, but she’s been told she knows this soul from before, they will have an interesting life, and they will learn many things together. They say the choice is Anon’s.

The Council says if Anon miscarries, this soul will return to her if she becomes pregnant again because they have many things they want to learn together.

While we like to think these sessions with The Council are important to the the person who asks the questions, this session seems to offer a broader wisdom we hope many listeners will appreciate. Listen to the entire 11-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Anon and for the rest of us.

Challenges, Suicide, and Spiritual Growth

This post is inspired by a reader named Cait, who says she thinks about ending her life every day because it’s so painful, and she asks The Council if she’s able to break a pre-birth contract she made in spirit once her incarnation has begun.

Cait begins by asking The Council, what if the path your soul chose to achieve spiritual growth actually inhibits your spiritual growth? And The Council says this is never the case. They say your spirit works out whatever challenges it wants to meet while it’s in the physical body, and while this can seem difficult from a human point of view, your spirit knows exactly why it has chosen what it has chosen and what it is trying to accomplish.

The Council says when you begin to accept you are spirit in a physical body and believe you can learn with less difficulty, and can focus on the way you wish your life to be rather than the way it is, this is the beginning of change. You always have the power to turn your situation around. When you plan in spirit whatever you want to experience, it isn’t written in stone. You create every minute of every day, and so you can create something new.

Cait says she thinks about ending her life every day, and while The Council says there is no judgement in spirit for taking her life, they explain there’s growth she can experience from going through these challenges. And if she chooses to pass on these challenges in this lifetime she’ll be postponing them until she chooses to learn from them in a future lifetime.

Cait comments that her life is harmful to her soul, and The Council replies that her soul will never create circumstances that will harm her spiritually. It creates these situations for her to grow from them, to change them, and to bring love into them.

Cait asks how she can get out of her current challenge without killing herself and The Council advises her to refocus her attention and read as many books as possible on spiritual growth that can teach her who she is as a spiritual being.

Cait finishes her comment by saying her higher self doesn’t appear to care about her or her suffering. And The Council says Cait has no idea the love, caring, and support that spirit has for her if she’ll open up to it, even if she only pretends to feel it at first.

The Council recommends Cait read a book written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel and Pat Rodegast, and the energy from this book will help her turn her life around.

The Council tells Cait she’s come to this feeling of desperation and wanting out on purpose to experience an extreme situation so she can find a better way through this. And The Council says she will find it.

Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear first hand all their guidance for Cait and anyone else who’s having difficulty navigating their current circumstances and is looking for a better way to experience them.

Feeling Good About Ex-Husband’s Passing

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Lunar Teddy about the death of her ex-husband and the pain and mourning she’s experiencing as a result.

The Council says the pain and suffering Lunar Teddy is experiencing come from searching for the validation she wanted from her ex-husband rather than finding it within herself. They recommend instead that she focus on any happiness she can remember when she was with her ex, and to know that he has completed his task in this reality and is in a joyous, loving place.

The Council says feeling grief and loss or that she and her ex never connected will take her thoughts into creating sadness and depression. They ask Lunar Teddy to speak to her ex in her mind before she goes to sleep and tell him all the things she would like to have done when he was here. The Council assures Lunar Teddy her ex will hear these things and will send her love. And the peace she’s looking for will come.

The Council encourages Lunar Teddy to release any unpleasant thoughts about her ex-husband’s family. They say it was what he needed to experience and she can be glad he completed it and is in a much better place. And they repeat that her ex is sending her much love, and she can focus on this when she feels separation from him.

Listen to the entire 6-minute recording of our session with The Council to answer Lunar Teddy’s question to receive the full benefit of their guidance.

Follow-up Questions on Leaving an Abusive Relationship

Recently we published a post titled, Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship, answering Jolanda’s questions about her relationship with her husband. After reading that post Jolanda had some follow-up questions and the current post answers those questions.

Jolanda begins by saying she was inspired to ask her questions by listening to the teachings of Abraham and that prior to hearing these teachings she felt leaving her husband was her only option. But she’s heard Abraham repeatedly say something like the following:

“Don’t get out of a relationship until you can be strong and happy within yourself, no matter what is going on around you. If someone makes you go out of the Vortex, just get back in. Don’t let someone upset your ability to be happy and be in the Vortex.”

Jolanda says she resonates to this and realized her problem was really her difficulty being happy when her husband was unhappy. She adds:

“Abraham cautions that if we don’t get ourselves right before leaving a relationship, we’ll just get into the same type of relationship again and again, until we learn our lesson.”

Jolanda asks The Council’s opinion on this, considering their answers in the earlier post seemed to suggest it was her intention she find the strength to protect herself and her children by leaving her husband. She says:

“I know I haven’t learned how to be happy while others are unhappy, which is why I feel that my husband is the absolute best partner I could possibly have at this time, because he’s in my face every day, being unhappy with me, and pushing my buttons. What better way to learn to get happy no matter what is going on around me?”

The Council has a lot to say to Jolanda about her situation, but it boils down to the following quote:

“When you realize something is not bringing you joy (because that is what you are wishing to experience) then you have the ability to start making another choice, to start making a plan on how you would do this if you’re not ready to do this right now. But there is nowhere/anywhere where Abraham or any other spirit would say stay there if you are miserable. It’s like, stay there if you have to till you get the strength to make another choice.”

When the session was finished we did a Google search on “Abraham Hicks abusive relationship” to get Abraham’s views on this subject instead of Jolanda’s view of what Abraham was saying. What we came up with was a 7-minute YouTube video titled, “Is it time to leave?”, which we reproduce below. The woman speaking with Abraham is in a situation similar to Jolanda.

And while Abraham does emphasize the importance of working on yourself to improve your vibration before leaving a relationship so you don’t attract a similar relationship into your life, they add that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to take action. They say:

“The story we like best is: You’re sitting on a park bench and you’re feeling fear, and you don’t really know if there’s a monster in the bushes or if you just think there’s a monster in the bushes. And we say, in any event, move away from the monster.”

The Council appears to understand that Jolanda chose to be in this abusive relationship with her husband for the specific purpose of developing the strength in this lifetime to leave him and protect herself and her children. The Council adds more than once it’s Jolanda’s choice whether she actually leaves her husband on not, and they are merely reminding her of her pre-birth intention.

Listen to our entire 22-minute session with The Council (below) to hear Jolanda’s follow-up questions and The Council’s answers for her and anyone in a similar situation.

Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Jolanda who says it’s taken her a long time to realize her husband (who is the father and step-father of their children) is verbally and emotionally abusive to her and their stepchildren.

Jolanda asks if she’s right to stay with her husband and The Council says there was a pre-birth agreement they would come together in this lifetime. They see previous lifetimes where Jolanda had experienced a lack of courage and in this lifetime she desires to learn to be a protector of herself and her children. The Council adds that her children are part of this agreement and it’s their purpose to push Jolanda to become the protector she wants to be.

The Council asks if Jolanda feels it’s safe for her children to be around her husband, or is it time to move on to protect them. The Council says these questions are there to push her in the direction she wants to go. And they add Jolanda doesn’t need to grow any more to realize the relationship with her husband is an abusive one.

The Council says Jolanda’s spirit wants to experience the other side of the coin – the kind of partner she’d feel unconditional love with and feel her children are safe, growing, and happy. They say it’s her choice and the lesson to protect herself and her children is right in front of her.

Jolanda says it’s difficult to be yelled at, blamed, ignored, and devalued by someone who means the world to her. And The Council asks if she believes by staying in this relationship she’ll acquire the strength she needs and the love she wants.

The Council advises Jolanda to love herself and her children and put herself on a path where she experiences this, and to picture herself as strong and happy, having a loving partner and happy children.

The Council says if Jolanda stays in this relationship it will stay the way it is. This is the way she created this relationship – to stay this way until she finds the strength to change it.

Listen to the entire 11-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jolanda.

How to Love Yourself

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Sujata who quotes the author, Anita Moorjani, and her advice to love ourselves. Sujata asks how we can love our self naturally, rather than force ourselves to think positively and suppress our negative thoughts.

The Council says we’re here on Earth to love our selves, but we are human and will experience human thoughts and feelings. They say there’s nothing the matter with thinking negative thoughts. They recommend acknowledging them rather than sweeping them under the rug, and trying to love the part of our self that thinks these thoughts. And they also suggest you look for ways to make these negative thoughts more positive.

The Council says it’s impossible to love ourselves without also loving others because we’re all connected. They suggest the way to improve your vibration is to practice sending love to others rather than just trying to love yourself.

Listen to the entire 7-minute recording of our session with The Council to answer Sujata’s question below.

Loving Feelings with a Married Co-worker

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named T. who asks The Council the purpose of a beautiful soul in her life who happens to be a co-worker and married to another woman.

T. says she’s never felt so free and content just knowing he exists and feels unconditional love for him. She’s unable to see any unhappiness in his marriage, and while she knows he feels something for her, T. has no idea what this is. She asks for signs of his feelings, but finds them confusing.

T. wonders if she shouldn’t give energy to the idea of being with him one day, or sit back and wait for the right time to be with him. She asks The Council why they have come together, if they’ve lived past lives together, and what is his purpose in her life?

The Council asks T. why she would want to give up this unconditionally loving relationship and they add this is the reason we have come to this physical reality. She has created this relationship in her life and she needs it.

The Council asks if T. must have more, or if she’s able to appreciate the relationship she’s having right now? Does she want to come between this man and his wife?

The Council feels confident T. will create whatever she wants. Perhaps she’ll create an affair with this man – whether it ends well or not will depend on how she creates it.

The Council says T. is able to create a situation where this man leaves his wife. Or is T. able to enjoy this relationship, taking what she finds there, and create her very own partner without separating this married couple? The Council says there isn’t any judgement of her whichever she chooses. What feels better to her?

The Council says T. and the co-worker have lived past lives together and he’s in her life now to help her get in touch with loving feelings that will help her create what she desires. Will T. take the love she’s created in this relationship and create a new relationship where she’s able to share these feelings with someone else, and still remain friends with this co-worker? Or does T. want to create what she desires with this man she works with?

The Council says it’s very important for T. to focus on the feelings and emotions that are uplifting for her and then choose whether she’d like to share this love with her co-worker, or create someone new in her life to share this love with.

This is a choice The Council says wants to be made (presumably in spirit). As they see it, this choice was discussed before coming into this physical reality when T. was in spirit, and it was her wish to see how she could create loving feelings wherever she goes, whether it be in an intimate relationship or with family, friends, co-workers, etc.

The Council says this situation is not about creating the right partner for T. It’s about creating loving feelings in all her relationships.

Listen to the entire 13-minute session with The Council to get the benefit of all their guidance for T.

How True is the Bible?

This post is inspired by a question from Wendy who’s a fan of the channels Abraham and Bashar, and she also feels a deep connection to Jesus. Recently she’s begun reading the bible with the goal of reading it cover to cover. Wendy is an avid reader of all things spiritual and feels an understanding of the bible is important, but she’s curious about differences she finds between what the bible says and what Abraham and Bashar have been saying. So she’s decided to ask The Council how true are the writings and stories in the bible to get their opinion.

Ordinarily we like to write a synopsis of what The Council says so you can decide whether to listen to the session’s audio recording below. For this session we’ve decided to limit our remarks because it appears difficult to summarize.

The Council does say in a past life Wendy was a child at the time Christ was born and she was a witness to this. The Council suggests Wendy meditate on this and ask to feel and see this again. And they say reading the bible is a good exercise for her.

We suggest you listen to the entire 18-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance on understanding the bible.

Whether or Not to Have a Forth Child

This post is inspired by a question from Jackie, who’s looking for guidance from The Council about whether or not to have a forth child she’s now pregnant with. Jackie says her forth pregnancy was a planned one, but now that she’s pregnant she’s having second thoughts about it.

The Council advises Jackie to examine her thoughts and her life to see what’s contributing to this change from when she planned this child. Is it the people she’s speaking with, is it old fears coming up, is she not sure about her relationship with the father, or something else that’s troubling her.

Jackie says she’s afraid a decision to have this child will end many close relationships in her life, and The Council advises her to think about what she wants for herself. Is the idea of having another child something that makes Jackie feel good? What kind of pressure does Jackie feel from the people around her that makes her feel like she would loose these relationships?

The Council advises whatever decision Jackie makes, there are agreements with the souls involved to be part of this decision. If she has this child and looses these close relationships, this was agreed upon and it’s okay with everyone involved. If Jackie terminates the pregnancy, this was also agreed upon by the soul of this child, and these close relationships would stay in Jackie’s life. The Council says the answer to this decision is in these thoughts. How did she get from wanting the child to being afraid of having this child?

The Council asks Jackie if she decides to have this child, whether she’ll have the assistance she needs to raise it peacefully. Or is she not likely to have this assistance, in which case she might decide not to have it. Which decision does Jackie feel more comfortable with?

The Council reminds Jackie she isn’t here in this physical reality to drive herself crazy or suffer great hardships. If there isn’t great love and anticipation for this child, The Council says Jackie should look at that. Does the idea of terminating the pregnancy feel like a relief to her. Now is the time for Jackie to look at her thoughts and the feelings that go with them.

The Council advises Jackie that in our physical reality there will always be fears and there isn’t any right or wrong decision. She should feel how she is with the thought of having this child, and feel how she is with the thought of ending this pregnancy. The Council says either choice is fine because they were planned for in spirit. It’s just the road Jackie desires to take.

The Council feels if Jackie thinks about what they’ve suggested, she will have an ah-ha moment. And even if she can hold onto this moment for a few minutes, she will know what feels most comfortable and can make her decision. They say it’s normal to waffle back and forth after this ah-ha moment, but The Council says Jackie will get a strong feeling about what to do and she should follow that decision.

The Council feels Jackie is a lot stronger than she believed when she wrote her comment. They say a small part of the anxiety she felt in the previous year is making this decision a little difficult, but they think Jackie will learn how strong she can be if this is her choice. As she begins to look at what she has learned and come through in her life, she will take care of herself differently and her life will change for the better, regardless of whether she chooses to have this child or terminate this pregnancy.

Listen to the entire 16-minute session below to get the benefit of all The Council’s guidance for Jackie and let us know what you think.

Ask a Question and Spirit Immediately Answers

This session is inspired by a reader named Sam and her questions about a relatively recent pregnancy she terminated. She says there are a lot of loose ends around the termination, and The Council begins by saying these loose ends Sam is talking about are all part of the learning and moving forward.

Sam says ever since she  learned she was pregnant she’s been feeling a sense of wholeness and love for herself and she asks if this love is coming from the soul of her child. The Council says while the child’s soul is constantly sending her love, the love Sam is talking about is Sam loving herself because she has followed her pre-birth spiritual plan exactly the way she intended.This love is part of who Sam truly is as a spiritual being. The Council says Sam stepped forward to help this soul, who desired to briefly experience what it was like to be in a human body, and then leave Sam’s body quickly.

Sam says the father of this child wasn’t really there during this pregnancy and isn’t currently in her life. She asks if there’s any meaning to why he was never part of the pregnancy and termination. The Council says the father also agreed in spirit to help this soul experience a brief physical life, but it was never agreed he would stay with her and be a family. Sam says sometimes she thinks about the father and wishes she could tell him all she’s learned from terminating this pregnancy. She says part of her doesn’t think he deserves to know and part of her thinks she should tell him, and Sam asks The Council what she should do.

The Council says in Sam’s spiritual pre-plan, this soul would play the part of the child’s father and then leave Sam’s life. If she chooses to involve him at this point, they say she’d be drifting from what she originally pre-planned, but they add this is okay. This is part of the choice she has in her current lifetime and they advise Sam to think about this choice. She is able to communicate with the father non-verbally and she should know on some level this communication is received. When this information is needed by him, he will have the benefit of whatever she has spoken to him about.

Sam says she’s learned not to look at this experience as a mistake, but part of her feels sad and she wonders if this is from loosing the child or from what she describes as poor decisions she’s made in her life. The Council says if Sam feels she’s made poor decisions, has she learned from them. If she had the opportunity to make these decisions again, would she decide differently based on what she now knows. And they add that this is what life is about – learning and moving on. They also tell Sam it’s important to look at the choices she’s made that have worked out for her and that she feels good about.

When Sam says she feels like she’s running away from her true self, The Council replies there’s nothing wrong with the way she’s handling her situation and they advise her to be open, accepting, and move forward. She will learn from this experience. They advise Sam to feel good about herself, look forward to having more understanding, and feel that it’s safe to let her energy expand rather than holding it close to her physical body.

Sam asks if she shouldn’t feel ashamed for hiding this pregnancy from her parents, and The Council says she is here to experience the love of spirit and there is no purpose to feeling ashamed. There is nothing wrong with the choice she made to terminate this pregnancy.

At the end of this session The Council makes the point that they answered Sam’s questions long before she wrote them on our blog. But was she able to let the answers in? Was she able to sit quietly and understand that her thoughts and feelings or the things she suddenly understood, is spirit reaching out to her with the answers to her questions?

The Council points out that when you have a question, spirit provides you with answers instantaneously, but are you receptive to them? In Sam’s case she had these answers, but she needed them to come in a different way. So she created the answers through this blog. The Council explains we have yet to fully develop to the point where we trust our intuition, and our thoughts, and our feelings. And they add that this is why we are here in this physical reality.

The Council asks Sam to let go of any shame, any regret, or any thinking of wrong doing on this situation she is coming through. It was pre-planned by her in spirit and she executed it beautifully in her physical reality. And they remind Sam to hold on to the feeling of self love.

This session offers much guidance on many aspects of terminating a pregnancy. Listen to the entire 16-minute recording below to hear all of The Council’s advice for Sam and anyone interested in this subject.

Searching for Better Feeling Answers

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Tracy who asks, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” and “What if we are sad, selfish spirit, and hurting so bad?”

The Council says they have never seen anyone not succeed on any level. They say succeeding is the process of feeling good, and there is always something in your life to feel good about. But perhaps Tracy can’t remember those times right now. Review your life, going back as early as you can, and The Council is sure you will find times where you succeeded. There is always some success in your life. When you look for those times you will find them.

The Council understands how Tracy can feel sad and hurt, but that’s because of what she believes and has planned to experience in this lifetime. But opportunities will continually present themselves and she has the power to change. Her greatest tool in this lifetime is choice, and she can always choose to look for something good. Or she can do something good for someone else. When you do something for another person you will automatically start to feel better.

The Council says some people chose to experience hardships their entire life because they are learning from it and want to experience it to the fullest extent. And you don’t know what the soul is trying to accomplish through this. But when you return to spirit everything is okay and you have the opportunity to decide what you want to do with this experience.

The Council says if Tracy has seen love but not taken advantage of it, she needs to look at why this is the case. This will involve deep soul searching. Because she’s asking these questions now, she can take this opportunity to look at her life differently. As long as she is alive, Tracy has the power to sort this out.

As  everyone in spirit sees it, Tracy has a successful life. There is no failure in spirit. There are just experiences, and what you decide to do with them.

The Council says in the beginning of Tracy’s lifetime she had the idea she wasn’t enough as a person. They add Tracy was lonely and around people who weren’t able to live a normal experience. This loneliness begins to shut down Tracy’s belief in what she deserves. And when she believes this, she will create situations that will prove that belief is true, until she begins to question and know she is so much more than a physical person, and that she has the power to change her life. These questions are coming forward precisely so Tracy’s life can change, and The Council sees this as great growth and a wonderful crossroads.

The Council says Tracy has time to make choices that will change her experience, regardless of what she experienced when she was younger. As long as you are in a physical body you have the ability to see things differently. If you can send love to the people in your life that you feel were not good to you, or to any situation that wasn’t right, there is growth and there is change.

Before you come into this lifetime and when you come back to spirit, you know that no matter how hard it’s been, you are not stuck in your physical reality. You are coming home.

There’s a lot of information in the recording (below) that’s difficult to include in this session overview . Listen to the entire 19-minute session to appreciate all The Council’s guidance for Tracy and anyone who is having difficulty in this lifetime.

Remembering You Are Spirit – Free Will – Other Lifetimes – Reason for Poverty

This post is inspired by a comment from Tracy on a post we published in April 2013, which was before we made recordings of sessions with The Council available. That post answered one of four interesting questions from a reader named Jose about why we fail to remember who we are as spiritual beings in our physical life.

Tracy asks a few questions beginning with, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” And ending with a comment about seeing the mistakes we’ve made, “but have no power left to sort it out, and already feel dead.”

As we re-read the post Tracy commented on, we decided to make a recording of it available in this post in the hope it might be helpful to Tracy and other readers, at least until we can publish a post to answer Tracy’s questions. While the earlier post answers only one of Jose’s questions, the following recording has The Council’s answers to all four of Jose’s questions. In case you’re interested, here are the five posts we published back in 2013 to answer these questions.

  1. Every Question Is Important
  2. Why Do People Appear Unable to Fulfill a Spiritual Intention to Have Fun and Remember Who We Are?
  3. Does Spirit’s Pre-Birth Planning Negate Human Free Will?
  4. Future Lives, Connecting with Famous ‘Dead’ People, & the Importance of the Present
  5. What Is Spirit Up To?

Thank you for your questions and comments, Tracy. We’ll do our best to get The Council’s answers and publish a recording of the session in the near future. In the meantime we hope our readers will listen to the following recording of our session which prompted those questions and let us know what you think.

Relationship Advice (What Have You Learned?)

In this post we answer Tanya’s question about a man and their on-again off-again relationship. Back in March 2013 Tanya asked a previous question about this relationship and to answer it we published the post, Why Would Spirit Choose to Be a Human Being Who Experiences Pain.

In that 2013 session The Council predicted Tanya would get back together with this man, and she starts her current question by confirming The Council was right. They got together at the beginning of 2015 and he proposed marriage to her, but the next day he changed his mind and Tanya’s been feeling depressed about this.

The Council informs Tanya she created coming together with this man because there was something to be learned from this relationship. She asks if they see the two of them reconnecting again, but she also says they’re not currently speaking and it’s okay if they don’t speak again.

The Council restates what’s important for Tanya is to learn what her experience with this man has taught her. They do see another coming together and they say if it’s her desire to make this relationship work, there will always be a way.

The Council encourages Tanya to focus on herself now instead of waiting for this man to come back into her life. They say it’s wonderful to choose to move on, and it’s also wonderful to stay with this man. When she finds out what she’s learned from this relationship, she’ll handle the situation differently and she’ll be happier with her choice.

The Council is pretty clear there is no right or wrong path for Tanya the next time this man comes into her life. It seems the important thing is to take this time to figure out what this relationship means to teach her. And with this information it will be up to her how she handles the next time.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session to hear all of The Council’s guidance for Tanya, and let us know what you think.

The Council’s Use of Prononuns

This post is about a question from a reader named Jan who wants to know if The Council’s use of pronouns like ‘you’ and ‘we’ is meant to differentiate between themselves and those of us in this physical reality.

The simple answer is, we don’t think so. The Council says sometimes they say ‘you’ when they’re trying to make a point about the person who’s asked a question. And they sometimes say ‘we’ when they’re talking more generally or when they are included.

The not so simple explanation has to do with how The Council experiences reality and how we experience reality. The Council says they use you and I often to refer to the same person because we are all one. But they add this point of view takes some understanding.

The Council says, “In truth we are all parts of all reality. And yet it is easier for people to understand when we say, ‘We have chosen to be part of your reality.’ It is easier to understand it that way instead of saying, ‘We are all in everybody’s reality all the time.'”

In other words, The Council seems to be saying their choice of pronouns has less to do with differences between us and them, and more to do with making themselves more easily understood by the largest number of people.

The Council says when they use the words ‘you’ and ‘us,’ many people don’t understand they’re referring to the same thing because they see us as spiritual beings just like they are spiritual beings.

The Council suggests meditating on their answers to this question and says it will open many doors and pose many new questions.

Jan also asks about beings like angels that interact with us from a non-physical reality, but we’ve decided to answer this question in a future post.

Listen to The Council’s answer to this question in the 6-minute session below and let us know your thoughts.

The Council Talks About Abortion

During a recent session The Council took the opportunity to speak in general about the subject of abortion because so many readers have asked about it. This post is devoted to that session. An audio recording of this session is included at the end of this post.

The Council notes that most questions on abortion center on the theme of feeling guilty and the need to feel forgiven. And they want everyone involved in making a decision about an abortion to understand that whatever their decision, whether to abort, or have the child and keep it or give it away, all the souls involved have agreed on this decision and there is nothing to feel guilty about.

They say this isn’t easy to understand when you are going through it because your experience in this lifetime is part of your personality and what you believe about it. But The Council suggests when you can begin to believe you are an eternal spirit in your physical body and the creator of all you experience,  this difficulty becomes less burdensome.

The Council says whether you decide to abort a child or not, this is part of an agreement you made with the soul of this child to have this experience and your higher selves are very happy about whatever outcome you choose.

The Council hopes you will experience relief when you hear abortion isn’t a horrible thing and you haven’t killed a spirit or put an end to a life, because we are eternal. They say we come to this Earth reality for experiences that are emotional and physical, and they remind us to always look for the love in each experience. In the case of abortion, you giving love to a spirit that wanted to have this experience.

The Council briefly discusses the subject of giving birth to a child with disabilities, and how you are giving this child an opportunity to experience a life that it and you have chosen.

The Council finishes with a reminder it’s your privilege in every situation to find that you are spirit in your physical body, see others for who they are as spirit, and look for ways to show the love you are.

Thank you for taking time to read this post. Listen to the entire 14-minute session below to hear all The Council’s advice, and be sure to let us know what you think.

A Lesson in Forgiveness

This post is about a question from a reader named Tanya who asks The Council if she had a life lesson in self-forgiveness to learn from an abortion.

The Council says there’s a life lesson in just about everything we experience as challenging or where there’s a difficult decision to make. They agree Tanya’s abortion was a life lesson, and while abortion is often about learning self-forgiveness, in Tanya’s case it was more about learning to let go of a situation when the timing isn’t right, being okay with her decision, and learning that whatever she chooses is the right choice.

The Council asks Tanya if, rather than just focusing on forgiveness, if her abortions (The Council feels there were two) have taught her something about facing challenges after the abortion. And their advise is to see where she is in the moment and go with the decision that feels best to her.

The Council says post traumatic stress comes when you don’t quite know how to be okay with the decisions you’ve made. The more Tanya learns how to let let go and move on with her life, the more she’ll learn to accept herself and have more confidence in her choices. The Council also says as Tanya learns she’s a spirit in her physical body,  she’ll become more okay with her decisions.

Bob asks if Tanya’s asking for forgiveness from the soul of the unborn child was for Tanya or the unborn child. And The Council says if she felt forgiven by this spirit it would help Tanya feel better and she could move on with her life.

When Bob commented it was his understanding from previous sessions that the soul of the unborn child was already forgiving, The Council agrees. But they add that Tanya wasn’t aware of this at that time. So she asked for and received this forgiveness.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to benefit from all their guidance is this session.

(This session was one of two we did so the recording seem to end abruptly.)

Do We Need a Mother’s Womb to Reincarnate?

This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks why we need a mother’s womb to reincarnate into this lifetime. According to The Council we don’t need a mother’s womb to reincarnate, but this is something we’ve chosen at this particular time because it’s a physical and emotional experience we desire.

The Council says in the beginning when spirit came into this reality the womb wasn’t needed. Spirit would project itself into trees and animals by an act of creation. After a while we desired a change and decided to experience this reality by being born from a mother’s womb to know the physical sensation of this process.

The Council says Earth is a teaching ground for physical and emotional experience, and at this particular time when you chose to come here, being born through your mother’s womb is part of the knowledge you acquire. They also say there are spirits who take the place of people who no longer wish to be in this reality, but there are still lessons to be learned by other people from these people. And The Council says there are angels who pop in and out of physical form to help people, and experience some knowledge while they’re here. And the mother’s womb isn’t needed in these instances.

The Council emphasizes that life is constantly changing and while we want to experience birth through the mother’s womb at this time, they also say we’ll eventually create a way to enter this reality where the mother’s womb isn’t necessary.

Bob’s curiosity about The Council’s comments regarding angels prompted some additional questions and some interesting answers about the bodies the angels incarnate into, the number of angels that choose to inhabit physical form at one time, and the amount of time they spend here.

The Council briefly touches on the subject of cloning and goes on to say they think we’ll go beyond cloning to the point where we can experience birth without the mother’s womb as an adult or a child, simply by willing this process of creation through our mind.

The Council emphasizes that our freedom and our choices are limitless and it’s their hope we’ll go on to experience different ways to incarnate into this reality, and they remind us whatever we wish to create is possible.

They also remind us there are people who choose to leave this reality very peacefully just by willing it when they feel they have learned enough, rather than create a disease or an accident.

The Council finishes with a reminder to enjoy your life, be grateful; stay in positive choices,  positive actions, and positive reactions; and continue to serve your purpose which is to spread love everywhere. And they close with a reminder they are always with you.

This was an exciting 17-minute session that touches on several noteworthy points about the power of who we are as spiritual beings in a physical body. Listen to the entire session below and let us know what you think.

Why Must I Go Through Hardships for My Soul to Grow?

This post is about a question from Asher who asks why it’s necessary to go through hardships, troubles, accidents, pain, loss, and more in order for his soul to grow? Asher wishes he could enroll in a cosmic school where spiritual growth is achieved through positive experience.

The Council says it isn’t necessary to go through hardships. They say they’re a choice. They ask Asher if he knows it wasn’t his intention to create a life he finds difficult. His intention was to create interesting experiences, and then by remembering who he is as a spiritual being and looking at these experiences in a more loving way, they become more loving and much easier to experience.

When Bob asks why Asher doesn’t seem to feel this love, The Council says it’s because he doesn’t understand his purpose for experiencing these challenges and who he is as a spiritual being. He doesn’t remember he created these experiences so he could have the fun of learning to change them into more loving experiences.

The Council says when we remind ourselves we are spirit in a physical body, we automatically begin to look at our experiences more lovingly, even if it’s difficult in the moment. And they promise as you meet each challenge and bring in the vibration of love, this vibration makes it easier for others to have a similar experience.

Asher says he feels sad that only the soul benefits from these spiritual lessons and not the human. The Council asks Asher if he realizes the spirit, soul, and human are one, and spirit will not grow unless its human part goes through these challenging situations. They say when the spirit grows it’s because our human part has gone though an experience, changed the way we think about it, and learned from this experience.

The Council reminds us there are many good things we’ve chosen to experience and to be grateful, and this will help change your vibration for the better.

The Council says Asher has created these hardships so he can learn how to go through them, experience them, and change them into more loving experiences by thinking better feeling thoughts.

For those of us who have a difficult time believing we are spirit in our physical bodies The Council says this is the #1 reason many spirits have come at this time to make connections and get the message out to remember who you are as spirit. They say even if we just pretend we are spirit, eventually we wonder what this means and understanding gradually becomes possible.

Should I Have An Abortion?

This post is about questions from a reader named S. who’s learned she’s pregnant. She loves children, always wanted them, and has been determined not to have her children suffer through poverty and unhappy circumstances the way she and her siblings did.

She left the father of the fetus the day before she learned she was pregnant because the relationship was an abusive one. S. says she’s currently in school and unemployed. Recently she was told by her doctor she has endometriosis and will have difficulty getting pregnant.

S. says she’s confused. She’s aware other spiritualists say it’s bad to abort a fetus unless it’s with a loving intention. She’d like her child to have a healthy mother and father, she knows this isn’t possible right now, and feels the need for a stable career.

Just days before she learned she was pregnant S. felt great comfort in her decision to leave her ex-boyfriend, and for the first time in her life was looking forward to loving herself and creating a whole person for a future partner and family.

S. wants to know why she’s pregnant now and if aborting this fetus has been the plan all along. She’s concerned about the karmic implications of abortion, and she’d prefer this soul return to her at a time when she can offer it a beautiful life with a beautiful father.

The Council begins by telling S. that leaving an abusive relationship is a giant step for her that shows self love. Having lived through a difficult time growing up, S. made the choice with love and wisdom not to repeat similar difficulties for her future children.

The Council is clear it’s not a bad choice to abort this pregnancy if that is S.’s choice; there’s no right or wrong. It was agreed before coming to this reality that this soul would come to her as a fetus and at that time S. would decide whether or not to have the child. The soul may choose to come back at a future time, but if it decides to move on there will always be another soul ready to come forward to help S. become a mother and go through the experiences she wishes to have.

If finishing school is the thought that makes S. feel best right now, The Council says this is the direction she should go in. If the thought of having this child now and somehow having a wonderful connection with this soul even if she’s on her own feels better, The Council advises to go with that. They remind her there isn’t any right or wrong and to pay attention to the way she feels when she thinks each thought. Follow the feeling of happiness, of love, of relief, and know that she’ll have lessons either way she chooses.

The Council advises S. there is much joy ahead whatever she chooses and by looking for this joy she’ll bring it into her reality. The key is to follow the better feeling thought.

Before S. chooses she should remind herself of the choice she’s already made to leave a bad relationship. The Council reminds her this is a wonderful decision she’s made. Somehow going through different experiences growing up helped S. make this choice. When she decides whether or not to have this child, all the knowledge and the feelings she’s experienced in her life up to this point will help her choose.

Listen to the entire 16-minute session with The Council to hear their entire answer and let us know what you think.

Why Do Young People Get Cancer?

This post answers a question from a long-time follower of our blog named Susan, who also has her own WordPress blog: Life Is A Journey…Not A Guided Tour. Susan says she understands that diseases like cancer can be created from a lifetime of fear, but she wonders how someone very young can get cancer. She’s heard it can be to balance karmic energies or help another soul with a life lesson, and she asks The Council for their thoughts.

The Council says there’s a lot of talk about having to pay back karma or balance karma, and they say this isn’t the way karma works (unless that’s what you believe). They say it’s more like in one lifetime you experience good health and you see people who have poor health. And in another lifetime you wonder what it would be like to experience poor health and grow from this.

The Council wants to make clear that poor health is a conscious spiritual choice, not a punishment. They add that you sometimes choose poor health to help others deal with this, sometimes you choose poor health to learn compassion, and sometimes you choose poor health to become more loving and understanding.

While Susan seems to assume it takes a long lifetime of experiencing fear in order to develop cancer, The Council says you choose your family based on the experiences you desire. A child is able to experience fear while still in its mother’s womb and develop cancer within a very short period. Or it can plan to experience cancer because they want to leave this physical reality early, or to help the souls around them experience this. Whatever the case, The Council says it is always planned before coming into this physical reality.

The whole purpose of going through a life and death situation is to have the experience, to allow the souls around them to have the experience, and in some manner bring love into the situation.

The Council talks about what it’s like for a soul to choose cancer to help the other souls in it’s life learn from this. And then closes by saying when someone is experiencing poor health, the best thing you can do is send them love and remember they are spirit in a physical body choosing to experience this. And if they wish to live through this illness, you are supportive of this. And if they wish to leave this physical reality at this time, you’ll be supportive of this also.

Listen to the entire 18-minute session below to hear all The Council’s guidance on why young people might choose to get seriously ill.

Will This Be My Last Lifetime?

This post is inspired by a question from an anonymous reader who wants to know if The Council can confirm that this will be their last lifetime. (This question was asked on June 8, 2015, but was apparently not posted, so we’re posting it today.)

The Council is clear that this person is the creator of everything that they experience in their lifetime. So if they feel it is their last lifetime, they will create it that way. And yet when they return to spirit and see how much more there is to do, they may change their mind and come back to learn more and help others.

The Council says many who wish to return to spirit and not come back become guides and helpers to others who are here. And so if they feel this will be their last lifetime, when they return to spirit they will create that. Eventually they want to come back into physical form, but it’s entirely up to them. No one will tell them they have to come back.

The Council advises if it feels good to think this is their last lifetime, then they should stay with that thought and feel good in it. And The Council also says they can’t tell if this will be this person’s last life. This is entirely up to them, whether they come back or stay in spirit.

The Council says they will still be creating and there is no ending. And they remind us our greatest tool is choice, whether it is here or in spirit. And they encourage us to have fun in our choosing.

When asked if there’s anything else they want to discuss, The Council suggests we meditate on who you are, that all is well, that we have choices in everything, and that we are here to experience love. And they remind us to look at everything in our lives and know that we have created it.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to receive their full guidance.

Stillborn Birth Revisited

This post in inspired by questions and comments from Janette, who asked about her daughter’s stillborn birth in a previous question and follows up with additional questions now.

After having a Cesarean section for the recent birth of her son, the doctor informed Janette that her uterus was only half formed, and this condition is responsible for stillborn births and several other problems. Having learned this she feels it’s a miracle her second child was born okay after her daughter was stillborn. But now she’s confused about whether there’s a spiritual reason for her daughter’s stillbirth, or whether it was just the physical issues with her uterus.

The Council replies that when she created these challenges in her life, does she understand it’s never something that just happens because her uterus is partially formed? It’s all been planned by her spiritual self for what she wants to learn, who she wants to help.

When Janette asks if her soul planned to be born with a partially formed uterus so she would experience her daughter’s stillbirth, The Council says definitely, and now she’s ready to let this situation go.

Janette asks if her daughter’s soul knew she wouldn’t make it through the pregnancy, and again The Council says, definitely. When she asks if her daughter’s soul planned from the beginning to be stillborn or if she decided when she was 33 weeks pregnant,  as The Council sees her situation it was pre-planned so she and her daughter could have the stillbirth experience.

When Janette asks if she knows on some higher level what the answers to her questions are, The Council says of course you do. They say on your higher level you have all the answers, and she knew she would experience a stillbirth.

Janette asks if she and her daughter didn’t agree to the stillbirth, could it have happened anyway because they had no choice and it was just something medical that happened. The Council is clear that we always have a choice. And they say if there’s a medical problem, it’s because her higher self desired this problem to help her experience this stillbirth. The Council says nothing happens by accident. It is pre-planned and everyone agreed to it. And they see that the stillbirth went according to her plans.

Janette says she thinks it’s the role of our guardian angels to ensure we don’t cross over before our time. She asks if her daughter’s guardian angel was with her during the 33 week pregnancy, and did it allow the stillbirth to happen?

The Council says guardian angels will never step in and change what you have planned in spirit. They’re job is to sort of hang around and make sure things go in the direction you wanted.

When Janette asked why her daughter’s guardian angel didn’t protect her and keep her safe inside her, The Council says she was safe in her. She was so safe that the stillbirth went exactly the way she planed for it to go in spirit.

The Council asks that Janette focus her attention now on the new soul that was just born into your life, to show it love at all times, and to teach it to be a loving person. As this child grows it will be very focused on what it wants to do in this lifetime and knowledge is what will keep him on the right track. The Council advises Janette to be part of the education that he needs. He’s here to acquire knowledge, to bring answers into his life, and be part of the souls that blaze a new trail into the spiritual world.

What Do My Soul, Heart, and Ego Need?

This post is inspired by a brief, but powerful question from Margaret, who asks: What do my soul, heart, and ego need? It’s a short question, but The Council’s answer is full of insight that applies to many, if not all of us.

The first thing The Council reminds us is that it’s good to realize we are spirit in a physical body, and that we are here to bring love into all situations we experience. This was our main purpose for coming here and they go on to say there isn’t anyone here who doesn’t have a spirit with them to guide them.

The Council says we’ve chosen our challenging situations because we want the experience of turning them around by looking at them with the love we are, and experiencing them differently.

They remind us our most powerful tool is choice. Every day in every situation you have the choice how you’ll handle these circumstances, and how you’ll move through every experience.

When I (Bob) point out their guidance for Margaret seems a little general, The Council says their guidance is what Margaret needs to know at this particular time, and it’s specific to her needs.

They suggest she read many of the spiritual books available and they mention by name those written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel. They close by reminding Margaret she is loved, and she has The Council’s support and blessing.

Listen to the entire 4-minute session to receive it’s full meaning and let us know what you think.

Would My Pregnancy Miscarry if I Didn’t Abort?

This post is inspired by a comment from A. who describes her situation as similar to L in the post, “Should I Get Pregnant After My Abortion?” A. says she never expected to have an unplanned pregnancy because she was on birth control for 17 years. But she switched to a natural contraceptive for health reasons, got pregnant, and felt an abortion was her only choice.  Her boyfriend didn’t want the child, and having it on her own would be difficult.

She wondered why this happened, and she asks The Council if her sense the pregnancy would miscarry if she didn’t abort was accurate. She couldn’t continue without the support of her partner, and decided with love to abort.

The Council says A.’s decision made with the feeling of love is the right way to go, and that a miscarriage down the road was not her plan. They see she got together with this partner and agreed spiritually to experience this pregnancy, and then experience making a decision on what to do about it independently.

Her partner played his part by not treating A. as lovingly as he did at first, and having her realize she’d be raising this child alone. Wanting to go through the experience of getting pregnant and not relying on another person’s opinion on what to do, A. went with her feeling of love and chose to abort.

In her past lives The Council says A. made a lot of decisions to please other people, or just take their advice. In this lifetime A. wants to become more independent. The pregnancy was planned by her, her partner, and the child (who would have come if A. chose to keep the baby), but knowing she’d have to raise the child alone she was courageous enough to abort.

The Council asks A. to look at the situation she’s gone through with her partner and see what can be learned in love through this. His situation was to have the courage to say he didn’t want to go forward with the pregnancy. If both were unable to fulfill what they wanted, the outcome would have been very different. Both experienced something they ultimately wanted, and The Council sees this as growth for them.

The Council congratulates both A. and her partner and say it’s not always easy to accomplish what’s intended. This was a good outcome, which The Council hopes will bring them much love and happiness. Listen to the entire 9-minute session below to get the full meaning. Let us know what you think.
