Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Overcoming Fear and Achieving a Dream

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Mariette, who started a website around a year ago as a dream to empower others with flower essences, energy healing, and counseling. She’s not really happy in her full-time job and instead wants to work helping others, but she’s having trust issues.

The Council says trusting in herself is something she’s picked as a challenge and that she needs to believe more in herself and have the courage to move forward with what Mariette feels is her desire.

The Council says it’s always when our path in life is close to changing that our fear will come to the surface and that’s what’s currently sabotaging Mariette. Will she be able to move beyond this fear and go on to her desired career? Her higher self is planning ways to get her where she wants to go. To get through the void she’s experiencing she needs to focus on what she desires. This will bring her past her fears. The Council sees she’d be very successful at this if she tries.

The Council doesn’t see a need to pause at this time. While the fear is from many experiences Mariette has had in other lifetimes, they feel focusing on this wouldn’t be productive. Instead they recommend focusing on how beautiful her life will be when she’s doing what she desires.

The Council says there isn’t a reason why Mariette has to stay in a job she’s not happy with. They recommend taking the chance and leaving to fully focus on what she wants.

The Council suggests as she moves forward with this part of her life, trust her feelings about what flower essences she thinks a person would need, even if it’s not in the books she’s reading. This will increase Mariette’s intuition.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council on Mariette’s questions to fully appreciate all their guidance, and let us know what you think.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Trusting You are Spirit in a Physical Body

Jaqueline’s Question

This is the first of two posts answering questions from Jaqueline, who asks The Council how to follow her inner guidance and find inner peace “even when things seem to be so messed up” in her life.

Jaqueline writes that she understands and sincerely believes in teachings like The Council’s and other teachers she’s familiar with who say, “We shouldn’t worry about anything ever because everything is gonna be just fine,” and, “We should enjoy life and think about whatever we want in our future in a positive vibration.” “But sometimes [it] is really hard to put this in practice.”

We like Jaqueline’s question because it frankly addresses a dilemma faced by many of us who are trying to follow teachings like The Council’s. In our saner moments these teaching make a lot of sense to us; they inspire us and lift our spirits. But sometimes, despite our best efforts, life can feel like an insurmountable challenge. When this happens it can feel equally challenging to remember and put in to practice these teachings about who we are as spiritual beings.

At the time Jaqueline wrote her questions for The Council she commented that, “All the time my head seems to be full of stressful thoughts about my future…about my present…if I’m going in the right direction…if I should do something…or nothing at all. Sometimes I get trapped in some drama and get very emotional about everything. Resuming, I have a hard time going with the flow.”

Stressful thoughts, feeling trapped, and feeling other unwanted emotions can be a challenge. When we feel this way and we also believe we’re not supposed to ever worry about anything and we should always be enjoying life, these expectations can sometimes add to the challenge of turning the situation around so we can ‘go with the flow’.

On July 24, 2012 we had a conversation with The Council (non-physical spiritual guides speaking through Cynthia) to get their advice on how to feel more in touch with well-being on a day-to-day basis when life seems to make this difficult.

This session contains many helpful insights, but for us the highlight is the reminder to meditate regularly on the idea that each of us is a spiritual being in a physical body. The Council advises that this type of regular meditation will help us feel more trusting that we really are spiritual beings, and this trust will help us through difficult times.

Interestingly, The Council says that as spiritual beings we actually look forward to these challenging human experiences because we view them as desirable opportunities to expand who we are as spirit into a physical reality.

This post relates the details of this session with The Council, and also includes some information on two meditation techniques they recommend. We plan to publish separate posts describing these meditations in more detail and eventually we plan to include audio recordings of these meditations as guided meditations.

This session also included The Council’s answer to Jaqueline’s question about whether she is going in the ‘right direction’ career-wise, and how career choices relate to experiences we have in other lifetimes. We feel this information is better suited to a separate post and we plan to publish that post in the near future also.
