Will the Soul I Aborted Return in a Future Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by a reader named Wendy who asks if the soul of the child she aborted will be able to return to her in a future pregnancy.

The Council advises Wendy, now that she has gone through this abortion, to really focus on getting control of her life. She should think of the direction she’d like her life to go in and plan it that way. She should have more confidence in herself, believe in what she wants no matter what anyone says, and move forward. Wendy should resist the temptation of being talked into what others believe and handing her life over to others. She shouldn’t dwell on why this abortion happened, or the idea that she was talked into something she didn’t want. Wendy needs to trust herself more and surround herself with people she trusts, but always ask about her own desire and what direction she wants to go in.

Wendy says she has a son, and The Council says they hope she’s able to find joy and gratitude he’s in her life. They say this is the beginning of understanding her feelings and connecting with joy, and in joy we create the future.

The Council says Wendy has forgotten how to feel her desire and create what she really wants. They say if the desire is real, her universe will help her through this experience no matter who agrees with her or doesn’t agree with her. And when she is happy with her decisions, the right people will help her move forward in her beliefs.

The Council advises Wendy to work with her focus and her feelings to let go of the sadness and guilt around her abortion, and if she’s able to do this, the aborted soul will return to her in a future pregnancy. They say she has a strong desire for motherhood and this soul is waiting to help her fulfill this desire. The Council sees this happening if Wendy focuses and believes. The say it’s all lined up for her to bring in.

The Council closes by saying they’re here to help everyone in our reality, and as we all connect, they bring the love from their reality into ours. Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Wendy 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.

Why is My Life So Full of Roadblocks?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Hadassah who feels like her life has gone backward since she married her husband. Hadassah says she and her husband were both successful before they married, but now they seem stuck and have become roadblocks for each other. Hadassah wonders why this is the case and asks The Council for guidance.

The Council starts by saying that Hadassah and her husband are experiencing a wonderful roadblock, but can see how she might be experiencing this negatively. They say she and her husband agreed in spirit to come into each other’s lives and help each other reach for their dreams. In discussions with her husband she should plan with him and help him come up with ideas to move in a direction he would like, and he should do the same for her.

The Council says as the two of them work to support each other’s desires, their energy becomes positive, there is more love in these situations, and they will see this roadblock disappear. Their desire was to come together and focus on each other rather than themselves, and to be of service to each other. They say Hadassah will experience much love when she focuses on the feeling of helping her husband move forward toward what he wants from life. And because her husband is focusing on her and helping her move forward, she will have success with new ideas she comes up with.

The Council encourages Hadassah to have fun with being supportive to her husband and vice versa. They say this situation is not about Hadassah falling apart because she’s with her husband and nothing is working out. That is what the both of them created in spirit to get to this point where they can find the love within themselves and help each other reach for their dreams. They say that’s how the two of them wanted to be of service in this lifetime.

The Council says it’s important to really listen to her husband and come up with genuine ideas that help him reach his goals, and he can do the same for her. Bring the fun and the love and the joy into this and it will move much quicker than they think.

The Council says Hadassah and her husband are at a turning point where they can learn to be there for each other and want each other’s desires to be fulfilled. And The Council promises they will see a gigantic change when they bring the love from spirit into their lives and experience the feeling of really wanting each other to succeed.

Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council to answer Hadassah’s questions. We feel there’s a lot of guidance in this session for anyone in a relationship.

A Relationship that Teaches a Desire for Freedom

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Kips who asks The Council for advice on a 9-year relationship with a man that has just ended.

The Council says the way this relationship was planned by Kips’s soul before incarnating into this lifetime was to end this relationship quite early. Because Kips and this man were fond of each other from other lifetimes they planned to come together for a very short time and then for Kips to get her freedom, which is what she wishes to experience in this lifetime.

And yet something about this relationship held Kips in it much longer than she originally planned. This staying with one another for a longer period is something that appeared because of circumstances in this lifetime.

Kips says being with this person brought her much heartache, and The Council says they hope this heartache has taught Kips a lot. And once these patterns are recognised The Council hopes Kips won’t accept them and stay in them, or draw them into a new relationship when she prepares to move on.

Kips says this man recently professed a desire to create a family with her and then he was gone. And The Council says that’s the way is should have been, but because of circumstances they created in each other’s lives it wasn’t over and it’s taken much longer in this reality to come to this point.

Kips adds that she wonders if there’s light ahead and says she’d like to experience love with a partner and build a family. The Council responds that there is light ahead and all around if Kips looks for it. The Council suggests expressing gratitude for the periods of this relationship when things went well instead of focusing on the hardships. They say as she appreciates the good that was in this relationship she can create something new for herself and move on.

When Bob remarked that it sounds like The Council is advising Kips to let go of this relationship, The Council says that if Kips and this man came together again they see another ending because the main purpose of the relationship was to come together and then release. Kips wanted to experience the freedom of learning from what was experienced and then move on.

The Council says what is ahead for Kips isn’t more loss unless she stays focused on loss and fear of things not working out, rather than happiness coming into her life. And they add if Kips truly desires freedom then she’ll be free to move on. If she desires a family and a new loving relationship that is easier and happier and that’s committed to by both people, then she’ll create that.

The Council ended this session by sending Kips and the rest of us more light, and they suggested we know this light is within all of us. And it’s all of us together that will bring the light into this reality so there’s peace and love and the feeling of spirit in each other’s worlds.

Listen to the recording of the entire 9-minute session (below) with The Council to hear all their guidance and advice for Kips and the rest of us.

A Past and Present Lifetime Relationship

This post is inspired by questions about a relationship from a reader who goes by the name Aquarius 4. He recently had a private phone session with us which brought up more questions that he’d like us to answer in a post.

Because Aquarius 4 discusses several different subjects that relate to material we discussed in our phone session, his comment can seem a little difficult to follow. The basis of his story is a problematic relationship with a woman in this lifetime that he’s experienced in other lifetimes.

Toward the end of our session with The Council they say Aquarius 4 won’t rid himself of this woman or the problems he’s experiencing with her in his current life. They are here to be experienced, The Council says. They say the connection with this woman is strong because the two of them have a spiritual desire to heal their relationship.

The Council advised Aquarius 4 he must take his focus off these past lives. They are there to provide information about what’s happened and what’s desired, but constantly focusing on what went wrong in those lives won’t fix the problems he’s having with this woman is his current reality.

The Council says to focus on what went right, no matter how brief it was, and focus on what he desires. When Aquarius 4 is able to create more of what he desires in his current lifetime, The Council says that’s when he’ll see change and feel more at peace.

The Counsel advises Aquarius 4 not to pressure himself to heal this relationship right now. They say healing will happen when they both feel safe and are able to look at the situations around them and overcome them.

At the end of our session The Counsel says Aquarius 4’s letter is full of questions and fear in the beginning, but by the end he sees himself handling and acknowledging things differently. They add that through this situation with this woman he has already begun to grow and is on the path he wants his life to be on.

The Council’s parting words are to be present, focus your mind, and feel your heart. They ask what Aquarius 4 has created in his reality and what he wishes to create? They advise seeing his situation as he wants it, feel the love, and he’ll bring this into his reality.

Listen to our entire 19-minute session with The Council below to answer Aquarius 4’s questions.

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 Do You Create What You Desire?

This post is inspired by a reader named Emmy who asks how she can create a family after having a recent missed miscarriage – a miscarried pregnancy that goes undetected by the mother, usually until diagnosed by a physician.

First The Council says this miscarriage was not pre-planned before Emmy came into this life. Instead she would decide after she got here whether she wanted to experience this.

Now that Emmy has a desire to create a family, The Council suggests she investigate the reasons why she wants one, then they explain the details of creating it. They suggest she see herself receiving the news she’s pregnant and feeling her emotions about it. Then they ask her to see and feel various milestones in the child’s life, from birth, to school, dating, marriage, having it’s own children, and the milestones in between. The Council says seeing and feeling these details and how she wants them to be is the way she’ll create them.

The Council says if she now feels ready, she can speak with the soul of her child-to-be and give it permission to come into her life, and it will come.

The Council suggests visualizing each event in the child’s life, going into great detail, and feeling like it’s already happening. This is the inner work. This is how you create in the spiritual world and then manifest it in the physical.

The Council says to have fun with this. Creating is always fun. Take the pressure off and see exactly what you want.

Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to get all the details of The Council’s guidance for Emmy.

Will I Have a Child?

This post is about questions from a 43-year-old reader named Sunshine who is single and has a strong desire to have her first child, but her attempts have been unsuccessful so far. She wants to know from The Council if this is possible and if she’s being punished for having two abortions 20 years earlier.

First The Council asks if Sunshine can be okay if she doesn’t become a mother. And they tell her there’s no outside source that’s punishing her for the abortions. She is entirely responsible for any sense of punishment or guilt she feels from this.

When Bob asks The Council if they think having a child is in the cards for Sunshine because they ask if she can be okay without having children, they reply that Sunshine creates what’s in the cards for her, no one else.

The Council asks Sunshine to remember that before coming into this reality she planned to go through these two abortions with the souls involved, and there was nothing disturbing about this to those spirits. They knew they’d be participating in the abortions for the experience and to help Sunshine, and everything went the way it was supposed to go.

The Council says many of the lessons we experience in this life, we plan before we get here. And there are spirits who agree to play their part in these lessons. When Sunshine is able to release any feeling of sadness or guilt or thinking of wrong-doing about these abortions, then she’ll be able to create a new child.

When Bob asks if adoption is an option for Sunshine if she continues to have difficulty getting pregnant, The Council says of course. But they quickly add that Sunshine can have a physical birth if she believes she’s the creator of her reality.

The Council says nothing is impossible if you really want it. Put yourself in the state of joy and happiness, and be grateful for each experience you come through that inspires you to want something even more. The Council says by knowing you can do this and by staying in the energy of joy and love, the creation of it becomes possible.

The Council says many people believe it becomes more difficult to get pregnant the older you get. But they remind us we are powerful spirits who can create anything we want in our lives. They tell Sunshine not to worry about her age and they tell her to work on forgiveness, happiness, gratitude, and moving forward in her life.

The Council sees it’s very, very possible for Sunshine to give birth to a child. And they remind the rest of us who want to create anything in our lives to find ways to feel grateful and happy for what we have. And they advise us to look forward, adding to that happiness, and move ahead with our mind and our feelings, always in the energy of love.

This 7-minute session is packed with advice for Sunshine and the rest of us. Listen to the recording below and let us know what you think.

Should I Move to Ireland with My Daughter?

This post answers questions about moving to Ireland from a reader named D. Back in July, D. mentioned in an earlier question for The Council that her heart keeps pointing her to Ireland, a place she knows nothing about, and The Council encouraged her to visit.

Now she’s returned from that visit and says she connected to the people and the land in a way she’s never felt before. Her heart is telling her to move, but her mind has a lot of doubt and fear about leaving the US, and she’s raising a child on her own. What if she goes and finds she can’t provide an environment of stability for her child?

The Council says this longing is D’s spirit telling her she has an adventure to go through in Ireland. She needs to be there to experience a different kind of life. When she thinks about this move and her heart is full of joy, she won’t be lead astray by her guidance. If she’s created a stable environment for her child in the US, The Council says she knows how to accomplish this and it won’t matter where she is.

The Council points out D. has created her connection to Ireland, and with her desire to go back she can create a way to make this happen. Her thoughts and feelings about going back and having a brand new life will bring into this reality what she’s creating in the reality of her mind.

The Council asks D. to trust and do the work of thinking and feeling her way back to Ireland, and things will come together that make this move possible. They remind D. the universe supported her on her first trip and will continue to support her in finding a way to make a return possible.

D. raises her concern about how this move will affect her child. The Council asks if D. feels Ireland will bring her much happiness, and if her child experiences her being happy, does she understand her child will also experience this happiness.

D. says her mind is pulling her in one direction and her heart and soul are pulling her in another. And The Council tells her they feel she’s already received the answer to her questions by the way she felt when she was in Ireland the first time. They say the challenge of doubt and fear is there for D. to change it into something more loving. Can she acknowledge her doubt and say she’ll make the trip anyway? By taking that leap of faith she will begin to see this desire come into her life.

Those of you familiar with The Council’s guidance from our other posts may think it a little unusual for them to make such a hearty recommendation. Ordinarily we find their guidance is more balanced. So when I said to them it sounds like they’re encouraging D. to revisit Ireland, they enthusiastically respond, “Why not?” Why would D. deny herself the prospect of another joyful visit and perhaps a permanent move there? And that was the end of our session.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council below for their full guidance.

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.

Abortion and Creation

This post is about The Council’s answer to an anonymous reader’s question about how many children she’ll have in this lifetime. She says she was told by someone she’d have one boy and one girl, but she recently had an abortion and is sad at the thought she aborted one of these children that she badly wants.

The Council begins by introducing the idea of pre-birth planning. This is the idea that as a spiritual being you plan various aspects of your physical life before you are born. They say the most important thing to understand is that as spirit you are creating your physical life. And after you come into this physical reality there continues to be a spiritual part of you that is still creating your life. And yet so many of us give away our creative power to others.

The Council asks A., who told her she’d have a boy and a girl and why does she assume they were correct when she, as a spiritual being, is the creator of her reality. Suppose she got pregnant again under circumstances that tell her she’s not ready for that child. Does that mean her chances for these two children she wants is over?

The Council says you are a powerful creative spirit in your physical body and you create what you want from your beliefs. And they say this abortion has come into her life at this time to let her learn about creation. And so if she has more abortions, is her desire for children strong enough that it doesn’t matter what anyone says if she wants to create these children in this lifetime?

The Council says everything you want is already created in vibration. And how you bring this vibration into your physical reality is by putting yourself in the highest vibration you can (love, happiness, joy). And without knowing how it will happen, imagine these children she wants in her life. Feel as if she already has it (because she already has it in spirit) and that will bring it into her physical reality.

The Council sees children in A.’s life. The question is will she create this? The Council says no one can do this for her, but she has the tools to make this happen. A.’s grief over loosing a child has brought her to the point where she can change her perception of her life and what she can create moving forward. The Council encourages A. to match the vibration of her desire for these children, to know she is the creator of her reality, and then this must come into her physical reality.

The Council asks A. to see the pattern in her life where someone came along and changed her mind about creating whatever it was that she desired. The issue of her abortion is part of a larger issue of creation and what she is capable of creating when she sticks with what she desires rather than give up her creative ability by believing what other people say.

Listen to the entire 20-minute session below to hear all of The Council’s guidance, and let us know what you think.

Understanding Your Spiritual Intentions for Your Human Experiences

This post is inspired by a question from Susan, who wants to know why some people (particularly a man she knows) experience childhood abuse or other types of trauma and end up with addictions, unemployed, and homeless; and other people (particularly Susan) move past their childhood trauma and take advantage of opportunities to improve their life.

What humans and spirit consider improvement can be very different

“But what you do not understand here is that your idea of what he needs to improve his life, and what his spirit needs to improve his life, is totally different. Is that understood?”

–The Council
(Text formatted like above throughout the post represents quotations from the session)

This was intriguing and we spent most of the session getting a better understanding of what The Council meant by this. The result was some impressive insights into the relationship between who you are a human being and who you are as a spiritual being. As an added bonus The Council offered some fascinating insights into the subject of multiple realities.

You have no idea what spirit wishes

The Council continued from their previous comment above:

“So if you [Susan] feel that he has had several opportunities to change his life or perhaps somehow deal differently with his abuse, yes that would make sense to many. But you have no idea what his spirit wishes.

“And what we see here is that it is his wish to be in this lifetime and to experience this addiction, to experience the abuse from what you would consider an unhealthy attitude toward what he has come through.

“What you do not know is that he has experienced this before (or as we would say, now [but] in another reality) and he has experienced it where he is dealing differently with his abuse and (perhaps) handling it in (what you would consider) a much better way [in his current reality]. Is that understood?”

Connecting with Your Higher Self to Manifest the Realities You Desire

This post is inspired by a question from Irina, and her question was inspired by our following thought for the day post:

“It is the spirit’s job to create the perfect life you want to live and to provide you with all the challenges and joy you want to experience. Spirit knows exactly what you want.”

–The Council

Irina comments that she’s pretty good at manifesting, but it’s much easier for her to help other people manifest what they want than it is for her to know what she wants and set an intention to manifest it in her own life. Irina wants to know how she can connect with her higher self and get the information The Council says her spirit knows about what she wants.

Choose Better-Feeling Thoughts for a Better-Feeling Life

Anne’s question

This post is inspired by the following question for The Council from Anne.

“Do you see me in a loving relationship with a man coming into my life? I have created the space and I am open to be with an amazing man.”

Keep Focused on What You Desire

The Council’s answer to Anne’s question emphasizes the importance of your focus of attention and how this relates to getting what you want in your life. The following Council quotes are session highlights to help you decide if you want to use the audio player above to listen to these comments in the context of the session. The first comment below was their response being read the first sentence of Anne’s question: “Do you see me in a loving relationship with a man coming into my life?”

“No, no, no, no, no [quickly 9-10 times]. Does she see herself in a relationship with a wonderful man coming into her life? Do you see where we’re going [with this]?”

“Talk about it… feel it… imagine it… draw pictures of it… watch romantic movies. Whatever it is that keeps your focus [on] the relationship that you want, right down to every detail that you would like, is a wonderful exercise.

“And so do we see it? Yes, we do see this. It is there in what she would consider her future.

“It is also there [in Anne’s future] that she does not meet this particular man that she would have a wonderful life with.

“It is her focus [that determines] what will be brought into her life. But if she, [as] she says, clears the space [and] focuses on this [relationship], yes we do see this for her.”

How is your attention focused?

If Anne consistently focuses her attention on the relationship and the man she desires in her life, The Council says they see this happening for her. They also mention the possibility of a future for Anne where this doesn’t happen, and The Council emphasizes Anne’s focus of attention on her desire will determine the future she experiences. The question is: what kind of focus of attention will allow Anne to experience her desired outcome?

The Human-Spirit Relationship and Free Will

Overview

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Jose, who has read in some of our blog posts (links at the end of this post) that humans are spiritual beings in a physical body, and that spirit sometimes chooses to have human experiences that we (as humans) find undesirable. Jose wants to know how it’s possible for humans to have free will to choose our human desires, if who we are as spirit is choosing human experiences that feel unwanted from our human point of view.

Lots of people have become interested in the spiritual teaching that you are the creator of what you experience, which has been around a while and has become more popular through the teachings of Abraham and other spiritual teachers. Jose’s question suggests he’s aware of lots of things in his human experience he doesn’t want, and after reading in our posts that who you are as spirit sometimes creates human experiences that feel unwanted from your human point of view, he came to the troubling conclusion that spirit is preventing him from having more of the human experiences he desires.

Topics Covered in this Post

Even if you don’t believe spirit is keeping you from manifesting more of what you desire in your life, and you’re not particularly interested in the subject of free will, if you’re interested in ideas to help you feel an increased level of well-being in your human experience, we’re finding the information and guidance from The Council in response to Jose’s question has been a big step for us in that direction. Topics covered in our sessions on Jose’s question and in this post include:

  1. The relationship between who you are as a spiritual being and who you are as a human being.
  2. Why the spiritual part of you might desire to have human experiences in a physical reality.
  3. Why the spiritual part of you might desire to have human experiences that feel undesirable to you as a human being.
  4. The validity of your human free will to choose your human desires, even if who you are as spirit is choosing to have different human experiences.
  5. Why you may be having difficulty manifesting your human desires in your physical experience.

Nothing Going On That Spirit Hasn’t Planned For

The Council began our first session on Jose’s questions by emphasizing there isn’t any separation between spirit and human.

“The spirit works through the body it [spirit] has created.

“So there is nothing that is going on that the body wants, that the spirit hasn’t planned for.

“Is that understood? It is all one – the mind, the body, and the spirit – it is all one.”

–The Council

Why is a Time Lag Necessary Before We Get What We Desire?

This post is the second in a series describing 2 sessions to answer 3 new questions from a reader named Jose. In the first post, How is It Possible There is No Separation Between Spirit and Human? (Jose’s Question 2.1), we address Jose’s concerns that spirit isn’t as unconditionally loving toward the human mind/body/ego as The Council and other spiritual teachers would like us to believe.

Jose’s Question

This post focuses on answering Jose’s second question, which you will notice is closely related to his concerns that we address in the first post.

“Why does there have to be a time lag in the physical to get what one desires?

“Is it because spirit wants to have it’s ‘negative’ experience in between, and once fulfilled it grants the body/mind/ego what it wants, if at all?

“Is it like a game where spirit always wins, but the body/mind/ego may or may not win at the end?”

When people hear the spiritual teaching that spirit immediately creates whatever the human desires, or the teaching to ask and it will be given, it’s not unusual for people to ask: If these teachings are really true, why does it takes so long for what spirit is creating and giving, to show up in my physical experience? This is Jose’s question, but with a twist.

Feeling Your Way to Manifesting What You Desire

The following is a message The Council delivered to a small group on July 19, 2011 prior to taking questions from participants. Before the session with The Council the group had been discussing the subject of manifesting desires. Headings have been added for emphasis.

“And so we notice tonight the topic was all of the desires that each of us have. And we would just like to tell you that before you came into this physical reality, you knew you had the ability to create anything you desired. If you have the desire, it’s there for you.

Feel Your Way There

“What we always wish to let you know is that you are so much more than a physical body. You are spirit on this journey in a physical world. You are very powerful, and the way to create, to manifest your desires, is to feel your way there.

“It is wonderful to see it, to imagine it, but what brings it in is that feeling. Every part of your body, every cell in your body understands, and as you have those desires and feel your way there, the universe will line up all the opportunities to help you create whatever it is that you want – and we do say – whatever it is that you want.

You Are the Only Creator of Your Reality

Have you heard this before?

Whatever will be
will be.

If it’s meant
it will happen.

This is all old thinking.

It takes the power of creation
out of your hands
or in reality
out of your thinking.

What you think
you create.

Whatever will be
will be if you want it.

If it’s meant
it will happen if you want it.

All it takes
is focus and feeling.

You are the only creator of your reality.

Every Question is Important

This is the first of several posts describing a 1-hour session with The Council on Saturday, March 30, 2013 to answer recent questions from Jose, Michelle, and D.

Jose’s Question #4

We began the session with Michelle’s question about whether to move to Barnstaple, Devon or Glastonbury (both in England), and when I (Bob) was about to ask The Council D’s question about what she describes as a broken soul contract, The Council interrupted:

“There is a number 4 that we keep seeing; what is that, Bob?”

—The Council
(This formatting throughout the post represents The Council’s comments during our session. Text [in brackets] in these quotations has been added to improve readability and clarity when this seems useful.)

I explained that we have four very interesting questions from Jose and that we answered his first 3 questions based on our understanding of The Council’s teachings because they seemed related to guidance we’ve written about in other posts. It was our intention to ask The Council about Jose’s fourth question in this session and when they asked about a number 4, I assumed they were referring to the Jose’s fourth question. I asked if they’d like me to read Jose’s fourth question to them and they said, “Yes.”

Jose’s Question #4: “If we come to this incarnation to have fun and remember who we really are, why do most people, if not all, fail at this attempt?”

An Incredible Place of Love

Did you know
that you came from
an incredible place of love?

And did you know that
when you leave this physical reality
you will return to this incredible place of love?

It’s wonderful if you do,
but (and here it comes)
do you remember
it was your greatest desire
to bring the love with you
and make life on Earth
an incredible place of love?

—The Council

Happy Easter

The Secret to Manifesting What You Desire

Background

Recently The Council suggested to Cynthia that we write a post to help people who are feeling frustrated in their attempts to use the teachings of the law of attraction and deliberate creation to manifest what they desire in their lives. As two people who have experienced these frustrations, we liked The Council’s idea and during a session on Saturday, May 5, 2012 we asked for their suggestions for this post.

Highlights

In this section we’ve gathered The Council’s comments from throughout the session that represent for us the essence of their guidance for manifesting what you desire. In the sections that follow, these comments are presented in the context of the entire discussion, to give you a better idea how these ideas developed during the session.

“We see that many [who] are incarnated in your physical world have many questions about manifestation.”

“We see that many are trying to create specific things – whether it is relationships, whether it is material abundance, whether it is health – [and] that there is trouble in creating it.”

“Many do not know what it means when they hear the phrase, ‘line up with what it is you are trying to create.’ And many are out there teaching ‘to match the vibration of what you are trying to create’. Many do not know how to do this because if you’re trying to create something you’ve never had, or never lived, there is a doubt [about] what it would feel like [and] what it would be like to have this thing or situation.

“So how do you create with your thoughts when you do not have the experience of having whatever it is that you are calling forth? And we believe what many are missing… the secret is: you do not have to line up with that particular thought; you do not have to imagine – even though it is wonderful to imagine – what it is that you want, [and] that you already have it.”

“So if you cannot line up with the vibration of what it is that you want because you have no idea what it would look like in your imagination, or what it would feel like, the answer to this – and this is the answer to manifesting – [is] raise your vibration with happy thoughts, that is the answer.

“When you raise your vibration, everything that you have desired – whether you know how to create it or not –will come to you.”

“It is so simple that many will have a hard time believing this, but we can tell you it’s what you might call the shortcut or the easier way to manifesting. It doesn’t have to be so difficult as seeing that you have it, feeling that you have it, [and] what would it be like? Some cannot do this.

“And so just be happy about anything; stay in the feeling of happiness and spirit will bring in everything that it wants.”

–The Council
(The formatting above throughout this post represents The Council’s comments during our session. Text [in brackets] in these quotations has been added to improve readability and clarity when this seems useful.)

The Rest of the Story

If you agree with The Council that their advice may seem overly simplistic and difficult to believe, I [Bob] had the same feelings during the session (as the following details of our discussion indicate) and for at least the next 10 days. But after listening to the recording of the session every day, meditating on it, and giving The Council’s advice a try, I’m beginning to see evidence there’s something to what they’re saying, and we’re both looking forward to seeing what manifests as we practice reaching for happier thoughts and feelings.

Most of our discussion with The Council during this session is presented in the following sections. Headings have been added to organize the material in logical and manageable blocks of thought.

July 28, 2011 Thought for the Day

We Expand With You

Your life was meant to be fun.
It is your playground.

And as we see you create and expand,
We expand with you.

It is [a] great joy
When we see how you plunge into this physical world
And experience difficulties, challenges,
And turn it around,
And create desire after desire.

—The Council

Excerpted from The Council’s opening comments to participants of a Manifesting Your Desires meeting on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in New York City.

(The Council’s opening comments lasted about five minutes and with the exception of a brief greeting, each statement seems to stand on its own as a thought for the day. Beginning July 25, 2011 we are publishing The Council’s opening comments during this session as eight individual thoughts for the day. This post is the fourth of the series.)

July 27, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feel Your Way

You are very powerful,
And the way to create,
To manifest your desires,
Is to feel your way there.

It is wonderful to see it,
To imagine it,
But what brings it in
Is that feeling.

Every part of your body,
Every cell in your body understands.

And as you have those desires
And feel your way there,
The universe will line up all the opportunities
To help you create
Whatever it is that you want.

And we do say
Whatever
it is
That you want.

July 25, 2011 Thought for the Day

The Ability to Create Anything You Desire

We would just like to tell you
That before you came into this physical reality,
You knew you had the ability
To create anything you desired.

If you have the desire,
It’s there for you.

Our First Audio Post – A Complete Recorded Council Session on Manifesting What You Desire

A Milestone Post

This post is a milestone for us. It’s our first post to include recorded audio content of one of our sessions with The Council, a group of non-physical spirit guides Cynthia is able to communicate with and channel (the process of letting The Council speak using her voice). For our first audio post we picked one of our favorite sessions with The Council, and we decided to include the complete session so you can get a feel for what these sessions are like.

This is an introduction to this post. Click here to listen to the recorded session with The Council→
