Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Who You Really Are

“Help all to understand how [you] are all connected,
and to acknowledge who [you] really are:
the spirit in the body.

“It has been done many times,
and yet this is still an important topic,
so we say to teach all
to acknowledge, to find, to connect,
to who [you] really are.”

“As all the great masters have taught,
as many of the books now published explain who [you] are,
which is pure energy, pure spirit, light, vibration,
existing in a physical body–
the physical body being needed
to manipulate around on the Earth plane–
but it is the greater understanding of who [you] truly are
that is important at this time.”

–The Council
(Excerpted from a session February 27, 2010)

When You Serve

“It is automatic when you serve,
when you extend yourself to help others,
it is an automatic reward to the one extending this help,
but not where you would question,
‘What is in this for me?’

“It is a true feeling of love from the heart,
to be of service with no prize, with no return.
And yet there always is the prize,
[there is] the return.”

“It is the helping with no thought of your reward.
It is just the helping.”

“Your vibration grows,
your heart expands.”

“There is more and more understanding
[that] comes into the consciousness.”

“It is law.”

–The Council (Excerpt from 2-14-2010 session)

What About the Ego?

Recently we read Anita Moorjani’s bestselling and spiritually uplifting book, Dying To Be Me, on a near death experience (NDE) she had after a 4 year struggle with cancer. We feel so inspired by this book that we did a session with The Council to learn more about NDEs, and we’re in the process of writing a post describing that session.

While working on that post we came across something in the Questions & Answers chapter of Anita’s book on the subject of Ego that we’d like to share here. The subject of Ego often comes up in spiritual discussion groups we attend, and in online discussions, books, and articles on spirituality. There appear to be lots of different beliefs about the ego: what it is, what it isn’t, it’s influence on your spiritual growth, how to deal with it, etc. Anita’s answer to the following question about ego is one of the most satisfying we’ve come across, and feels very much in harmony with what The Council is teaching. For a good understanding of Anita’s answer it may help to have read her book, but we hope you get the idea and find it helpful.

Question for Anita

“Most people on a spiritual path believe that the ego impedes spiritual growth and that we’re supposed to shed the ego. Why aren’t you advocating this?”

Anita’s Answer

“Because if you deny the ego, it will push back against you harder. The more you reject something, the more it fights back for its own survival. But when you can completely love your ego unconditionally and accept it as part of how you express in this life, you’ll no longer have a problem with it. It won’t impede your growth – on the contrary,  it will be an asset.

“We’re all born with an ego – it’s a natural part of who we are here. We’re only completely without it in death. Fighting against this during life only creates more self-judgement. Plus, only when we love our ego unconditionally are we able to accept everyone else’s. This is when it stops being an issue, and your humility and magnificence really shine through.”

—From Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moorjani, p.173, published by Hay House ©2012

If you believe you have an ego that’s interfering with your spiritual growth, Anita appears to be saying that if you practice loving your ego unconditionally you will have a much more spiritually satisfying experience than if you look for ways to minimize your ego. This makes lots of sense to us. In other words, if you’re concerned your ego is causing you problems – spiritually or otherwise – consider the possibility these difficulties are more likely the result of your beliefs about your ego and your attitude towards it than something inherent in the nature of the ego.

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 Part of Your Biological Ancestors

What we seldom recognize at this time
is that we are part of our biological ancestors,
where in our family lines we,
at one time,
could have been our great-grandmother,
or an uncle,
or an aunt.

So that knowledge is also within.
You are part of your ancestors;
there is no separateness.

What You Believe is What You Create

How everything works in your existence;
how everything is created;
if you need a law
it is called the law of your beliefs.

If you believe in the law of attraction
it works for you.

If you believe in Murphy’s Law:
anything that can go wrong will go wrong–
it’s going to happen.

If you believe in the law of karma:
that in some lifetime you’ve been very good
and now you will be rewarded,
or you’ve been very bad
and you’ve got a debt to pay–
that is what is going to happen.

The only law we feel you will eventually get to a point of understanding
— and this is for the entire physical existence that you have all created —
you will eventually get to the law of beliefs.

What you believe
is what you will create.

And that is what we wanted to get across today.

There are no restricting laws.
There is no must-have, must-do, must-feel.

What you believe,
what you truly believe,
is what you will create.

So we are taking you
from kindergarten to college.

We are saying it is wonderful;
you can do these things,
read about them,
practice them,
but when you graduate
it will be to the law of beliefs.

Follow these other laws
if they help you,
if it is needed.

But in…we don’t want to say the end
because there is no end…
it will come to: what happens in your life,
to yourself, to the people around you, to your nation,
is what you believe.

You create everything
that you hear,
that you see,
that you experience.
