This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Linda about a distant energy healing she received recently to clear her aura of negativity. Since the healing took place she’s felt down, not much joy, and seems to have lost her flow in life. She asks The Council if these feelings will pass, or is there something she can do to re-establish her joy and get unstuck from where she finds herself?
The Council begins by pointing out the ability to heal herself lies within Linda rather than within an external healer. Sometimes when you go to another person for a healing, that person will send you healing energy and your body and spirit will use this energy in the way that’s best for you. What The Council sees is that this healing stirred up a lot of Linda’s emotions and instead of getting the full clearing she wanted, these emotions have been brought up so she can learn to heal them herself.
The Council suggests meditation, prayer, working with crystals, and using her healing inner light. See the energy go into and around her body and lift out what needs to be removed.
Another exercise Linda can do is one she also used in a lifetime as an American Indian where she would stand on a hilltop on a windy day, raising her arms, and ask the Wind God to blow through her and remove whatever is negative or she doesn’t need.
The Council says the reason these emotions were stirred up is to get her to know she has the power to heal herself. And they add that the person Linda chose to do this energy healing did exactly what was necessary, with love, to push her forward in finding her true self.
Listen to the entire 6-minute session we did with The Council (below) on Linda’s questions to hear all their guidance for Linda and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
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.

This post is inspired by questions from Maria about her past lives and her spiritual path. She has been told by a psychic that she’s a healer and asks The Council if they see her doing this as a career.
The Council sees a past life as an American Indian where Maria was a medicine woman who did a lot of healing. In this lifetime she knew how to work with plants and to call in spirit to ask for help. The Council says if Maria has a desire to be a healer, it comes from this past lifetime.
The Council says if Maria wants to carry forward her healing ability into this lifetime they ask her to work with people’s emotions. When people speak to her she’ll feel what’s behind their words. They advise Maria to listen with her heart to understand what the person is trying to heal, understand, and aspire to. They also suggest reading books on herbs, other plants, and Bach flower essences.
The Council asks Maria to look into healing as a profession and if she feels it’s something she’d like to do, they say she’d be a success.
The Council also recommends learning about crystals by reading books and visiting crystal shops, lighting incense when she prays, and walking barefooted among the trees. And all the knowledge she had as a healer in this past life will slowly return to her.
Listen to our entire 5-minute session (below) with The Council to receive the benefit of all their guidance for Maria and the rest of us.
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.

This post is inspired by questions from an anonymous reader on the theme of past lives. She says she’s experienced some difficulties in this lifetime and asks if her last lifetime was any different. She also asks how many lifetimes she’s had, and if she’s an old soul.
The Council starts by saying we are all old souls according to time in our reality. By this we expect they mean that most or all humans have experienced many, many lifetimes.
The Council reminds this reader she’s the creator of the difficulty she’s experienced and they ask: what has she learned about this, how has she come though these experiences, is she proud of herself and does she love herself for what she’s been through. Then The Council asks if she can feel how going through these difficult experiences has brought her to where she is right now, and these experiences can help her create the future.
The Council says we pull situations from past lives into our current life to push us and help us in this lifetime. They say perhaps you liked the way you handled something in a past life and want to experience it again. Or perhaps you think you can handle a situation better and you create it again in this lifetime to see if you can have a better feeling outcome.
The Council says it’s Anonymous’s purpose in this lifetime to appreciate her experience in a family that hasn’t been loving, rise above that experience, and when the time comes she can create her own family where she can give and receive the love she didn’t receive from her birth family.
What surprised us most about the information in this session was The Council’s response to A’s question about how many past lives she’s lived. The Council has mentioned in several other sessions that from a spiritual point of view we don’t experience a past and a future. Everything is taking place in an infinitely present moment. What we think of as the past and the future is a human interpretation we think of as time.
The Council says because your spirit is so full of love and the desire to learn and experience, your soul is able to send multiple parts of itself into various time periods–past, present, and future–and experience them all simultaneously. They even say we have the ability to send multiple parts of ourselves into the same time period. And we have the ability to create new additional past as well as present lives.
This session contains ideas that may be difficult to grasp. Listen to the entire 10-minute session below to hear in The Council’s own words the power you have as a spiritual being.
This post answers several questions from a reader named Sarah who’s 23 years old and relatively new to thinking about her spirituality. She begins her questions by asking The Council for some general clarity on the nature of things and her path to intimate love.
Sarah explains how her deeper appreciation for self-love and love in general has caused her to question the meaning of twin flames and soul mates, and whether she can create them in her life. And she describes a very close male friend who seems meant to be something important to her, but she doesn’t feel that drawn to him as a boyfriend.
Sarah asks if this young man is her twin flame or soul mate because she wants to know if she should try and create these in her life, or sit back because he’s the one. She asks how much of her situation is pre-determined spiritually and how much she controls as a human being?
The Council’s Answers
The Council starts by commenting it’s wonderful Sarah understands the importance of loving and appreciating herself rather than projecting her love onto someone else so she can feel it.
The Council addresses the question of twin flames, sometimes referred to as twin souls. After a little background which you can hear in the recording below, The Council asks if we realize we’re all the same soul, all connected, and part of the One. And they ask if that doesn’t make us all twin souls?
The Council says many people are looking for their soul mate because they believe it will be the perfect relationship, but they don’t seem to agree. They say soul mates don’t just come along in a love relationship or partnership. They can be cousins, friends, acquaintances, and they usually push you to grow and force you to a higher level of understanding, whether it’s through positive experiences or negative ones.
In response to Sarah’s question about whether she’s able to create a twin flame or soul mates in her life, The Council says she can create either or both. The Council is firm that you as a spiritual being are in charge of your life experience.
There’s some interesting discussion about the ways your spirit pre-plans what happens in your physical reality.
With regard to Sarah’s male friend, The Council advises appreciating the connection they share, and know she doesn’t have to feel drawn to him romantically. He’s in her life for whatever experiences, fun, and challenges they go through together. But as far as a love relationship is concerned, she is able to create something else if she wants.
In response to her question about whether he is a twin flame or soul mate, The Council says because they’ve shared many lifetimes together, yes he can be a twin soul and yes he can be a soul mate. But they add that we are all those things to each other.
Listen to the entire 19-minute session below for details of The Council’s answer to Sarah’s question.
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.
This post is a short question and answer from an anonymous reader who says they’ve felt for at least four years they don’t belong in their hometown and they ask The Council for guidance about moving.
The Council starts by saying they can see this person move if they can see it themselves. They encourage this person to trust their feelings and move anywhere the desire comes up within them. When you feel unhappy where you are and there’s a feeling it’s time to leave, ask yourself what you are drawn to and visit these places.
You will know where to move because an opportunity will open up for you. Perhaps it will be a job offer or a place to live. Learn to trust and follow your feelings. The Council says when you go somewhere and even though you are desperate to move, if it doesn’t feel right, follow your feeling and go with what pulls you and makes you smile when you think of it.
The Council says they see a move for you and you will create this move when your are ready as long as you let fear get out of the way. And it will be a good move as long as you follow your feelings. Your feelings will show you the way.
This 5-minute recording is testimony to the creative power of the individual when you allow the love you are as spirit into your life and follow these feelings. Listen to the session for The Council’s entire message. (The recording that follows is an excerpt from a session that answers several questions.)
This post is inspired by questions from Julia who was married for 12 years and has been divorced for 2 years. She asks why non-monogamous relationships disturb her so much and wants to know if she should be more open to them?
Julia was monogamous in her marriage, but now has questions about open relationships as a single person. Sometimes she thinks she should try it because she gets so obsessed in her romantic relationships, but the thought disturbs her to the core.
The Council suggests Julia find the love for herself she’s looking for in relationships and asks why she wants to experience something she knows will be unpleasant in order to fit in. They also suggest Julia listen to herself and ask why make herself uncomfortable.
The Council advises more self-love, more doing for herself, and being gentle with herself to draw in the right people.
In one lifetime she was one of many wives and wasn’t made to feel special. She was lonely, didn’t receive enough attention, and that began her uncomfortable feeling she carries into this lifetime. Perhaps knowing where this feeling of uncomfortableness with open relationships comes from will make it possible to release this and work on loving herself more.
The Council says it’s fine to be in monogamous or non-monogamous relationships, but encourages Julia to choose what’s comfortable for her and ask why she’d put herself in a relationship where there’s no comfort. Choosing a monogamous relationship with someone who has similar beliefs would be easier for her.
Listen to the entire 9-minute conversation with The Council to hear all of what they had to say.
A Question from Sky
This post is a response to Sky’s question for The Council about how to find “the highest and most loving way to create harmony and balance in my new relationship.” Sky’s full question can be found here.
After reading Sky’s question to The Council, they expressed a desire to address it sentence by sentence to make sure they address each issue.
You Have Access to Higher Wisdom
The Council enjoyed Sky’s reference to them as “Beloved Council.” And they love that Sky is thankful for their higher wisdom, but they remind Sky and the rest of us that humans are spirit in a physical body and we have the potential to access the same wisdom, but we tend to forget we’re spiritual beings with this ability. The Council says it’s their desire to remind us of the wisdom we have within us, and they do this by “knocking us on the head a little bit, and opening the door of our heart a little bit” to help us access this wisdom within ourselves.
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.
You will know when you are aligned with Source,
By the good-feeling emotions you are feeling.
From moment to moment
How you feel is important.
You attract into your future
What you are feeling,
Not what you are saying.
Your emotions create your vibration,
And your vibration attracts
What you create.
A Question from Chris
This post is a response to a question from Chris, who asks The Council, “How do you really know when messages from meditation are really what to follow?” Chris explains she often gets excited by ideas to go in a certain direction with her life, but when she considers these inspirations in the light of her day-to-day experience, they don’t seem so inspirational any more. Chris gives the following two examples: ideas about new people coming into her life that never seem to come, and ideas about a direction she should take for work that maybe don’t turn out the way she hoped.
Chris’s questions seem relevant for many readers, even if you’re not a meditator. If you ever felt good about an inspiration to take your life in a particular direction, only to end up feeling confused when the inspiration ends up feeling like an impractical and unattainable desire, you may find The Council’s guidance helpful.
