Why Do People Believe in Divine Retribution for Abortion?

This post answers a question from a reader named, Pakt, in response to a post we published titled, Life Feels Over After An Abortion. Pakt asks why so many people believe there will be divine retribution if you have an abortion when The Council says there isn’t any divine retribution and you won’t be struck down by God.

The Council starts by saying God or whatever you believe in has granted you free will and you will never be punished for what you choose to create in your life. Everything is allowed. You learn from everything you do, either during your current lifetime or when you return to spirit. In spirit you’ll review this life and learn what you’ve gone through, how you handled it, and the lesson is always learned.

The Council says you believe in divine retribution because from almost the beginning of time, man was afraid of this all powerful God, and if you didn’t please this God you’d have to pay. The priests and people in authority made rules that when you don’t follow the law, you’ll suffer. Man made these rules, including the rule that God gave you life and if you ended that life, God would punish you. But The Council says this isn’t the way things are; it’s only the way man believed it would be.

The Council says there is a contract between two or more souls to have a child or to abort the child. This contract allows you, according to what you want to learn, to have the child or abort the child. When you learn there is a gentler God who is only love and not some monster that will punish you if you don’t follow his laws, you’re free to make choices. When you learn you are spirit, when you learn God is love, when you learn everything is allowed, then you’re closer to who you truly are as a spiritual being in a physical body.

The Council says what you believe will show up in your life. If you believe you’ve done something horrible, you’ll find ways to punish yourself. There isn’t any God that will punish you for what you’ve done. You believe God will punish you because you’ve been taught this in other lifetimes and your current lifetime, and you’ll believe this until you find the truth that works for you.

Are All Human Beings Descendants of the Annunaki?

This post answers some very interesting questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, who asks if a group of beings reported to live in ancient Sumeria called the Annunaki are real?

The Council begins by saying there are many stories about the Annunaki and these stories are real if you allow these stories into the reality you’re creating. This is a reference to The Council’s previous guidance in other posts that each person creates their own reality according to what each person believes. This can be a difficult concept for many of us to understand and accept, but if you’re interested in reading additional posts of ours on this subject, you can find them here, or by clicking on the last link in the Categories column titled, You Create Your Reality, at the bottom right-hand column of most of our pages.

The Council sees the stories that the Annunaki, who were a scientific and intelligent people, came to Earth from the planet, Nibiru. One of the stories is that they came to Earth looking for gold.

After being on Earth for many years they decided to reproduce with humans by artificial insemination so their offspring could do menial work for the Annunaki. These offspring had the combined DNA of the Annunaki and humans and they considered the Annunaki to be gods. These humans allowed the Annunaki to make rules for them and take over the way these humans lived. These human believed the Annunaki would show them how to live a better life. After thousands of years, some of the Annunaki left Earth, but many of them are still here and teach the rest of us.

The Council says what you choose to believe exists for you. If the idea of the Annunaki is something you wish to explore, then they are real for you. For people who don’t believe in the Annunaki or have never heard of them, The Council says the Annunaki don’t exist for these people. When The Council asks Bob if he understands this, Bob says it’s not easy to understand.

The Council says perhaps you’ve experienced the Annunaki in a past life and so they’re real for you. The Council feels Kristi was a worker in ancient Sumeria and had connections with the Annunaki, and she should have a familiar feeling about them. Kristi has brought the subject of the Annunaki into her current lifetime to explore it and maybe to teach others about this.

Kristi specifically asks if the Annunaki created humans as their worker force and The Council says yes.

Next Kristi asks if Enlil or Enki is considered to be the god of the Old Testament? These are apparently names two of the Annunaki. The Council says Enki is the god in the Old Testament and is linked to the story of Noah’s ark. It’s believed that when there was to be this destruction on Earth, like in the Bible, Enki is the one who saved the animals and some humans.

The Council says the Annunaki are here on Earth right now, in our medical fields, in scientific fields, in government. All humans in this current reality are descended from the Annunaki.

It seems to us that we’ve just scratched the surface on the subject of the Annunaki, which we were unfamiliar with prior to Kristi’s asking about them. We’re very grateful for her questions and we feel this subject deserves further looking into.

Listen to the audio recording of our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Kristi and the rest of us on this important subject, and let us know what you feel about it.

Is God Evolving?

In this post The Council answers a question I (Bob) had recently while reading the book, Conversations With Mary, by Anna Raimondi. Ms. Raimondi is an intuitive, like Cynthia, who is able to communicate with the spirit of the virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. In a chapter titled, Why Are We Here?, Anna asks Mary if God is evolving. The short answer (p. 82) is that God is constant and always the same. This struck me as unusual because I was under the impression from our sessions with The Council that what we call God is continually evolving.

So I asked The Council if God is evolving, they answered, always, which appears to contradict Anna’s message. The Council goes on to say when God decided to create life, little pieces of itself (God’s self) go into every individual, and God learns from these experiences he’s having in each soul that’s creating life. … And so we say, God is evolving, God is always creating more, and is always learning from the experience.

When I ask what Mary may have meant when she says that God’s always the same, The Council says it was Mary’s belief that her God already knew everything that would ever happen. The God Mary believed in didn’t need to evolve. He was the all mighty, the always was and the always will be. No growth is needed in this version of the all mighty God because it was believed it already was and always would be.

When Bob asked if we understand God differently now, The Council says as we learn that we are spirits in physical bodies, and we are creating our lives, and we are learning, God is within us. As we are learning, God is learning.

The Council goes on to say God is always evolving because we, as humans, are always evolving. Nothing is stagnant, nothing stays still, everything changes, everything grows. The more love we feel and show each other, the more love God feels and the more God expands.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance about God’s evolution, and let us know how you feel about it.

Does Spirit’s Pre-Birth Planning Negate Human Free Will?

This post is third in a series describing a session with The Council on Saturday, March 30, 2013 to answer questions from Jose, Michelle, and D. This post focuses on the first of Jose’s four questions and it’s about guidance from The Council in a recent post and the issue of free will:

“In the case of what was shared in Maria’s Plan for a Spiritual Leap, it appears that the spiritual agreement made prior to the incarnation is more powerful than Maria or her friend’s “godly” power to manifest a new reality of survival and togetherness in this lifetime, as if there is no free will in this incarnation.” —Jose

Maria’s Plan for a Great Spiritual Leap

This post is about a question Maria asked after reading a Thought for the Day from The Council titled ‘Everyone In Your Life Was Invited By You‘.

Maria explains her best friend is on his deathbed and she’s experiencing a lot of emotional pain about this. She is asking The Council if it is also with her permission that her friend is exiting her life, because she’s having difficulty understanding why she would agree to ‘loose’ him at this time and in this way.

There is Agreement

“No one comes into your life unless you invite them. Their departing your life is something that they plan along with you, so there is agreement for both of you that when it is time, when you feel you have concluded what you needed to do together, one or both [of you] exit [the physical body].

“And so, although you find this very painful, it has been discussed and planned while you were still in the spirit world.”

Does God Exist?

This is a follow up to previous post titled: Believing in a Loving and Benevolent God When Life Sucks. Barry P. read that post and passed along the following anecdote about believing in God. I found it thought provoking and worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it.

The Young Man & The Barber

A young man, while getting a haircut and his beard trimmed, was deep in conversation with his barber. The conversation turned to the subject of God and the barber proclaimed, “I don’t believe God exists.”

“What makes you so sure,” asked the young man?

The barber walked to the window and replied, “All you have to do is look out in the street to realize God doesn’t exist. If God existed, there wouldn’t be any sickness, or pain, or suffering. I can’t imagine a God that would allow these things.”

The young man was about to disagree with the barber when he had a feeling he should hold back. He was surprised by this feeling, but decided to follow his intuition. He tactfully changed the subject of the conversation, but kept thinking about the barber’s comment about God.

As the young man was leaving the barbershop, he noticed through the window a man on the street who had very long, unkempt hair and a long, unkempt beard. This gave the young man an idea.

He turned to the man who just trimmed his hair and beard and proclaimed, “Barbers don’t exist.”

“Are you crazy,” asked the barber? “You just paid me to cut your hair and trim your beard.” I’m living proof that barber’s exist.

The young man replied, “Look out in the street. Do you see that man with long messy hair and a long straggly beard? If barber’s exist, there wouldn’t be anyone who looked like that. I can’t imagine barbers would allow something like this.”

And the young man turned and left.

Believing in a Loving and Benevolent God When Life Sucks

This post is a response to a question for The Council from Chris, who wants to know how she can believe a loving and benevolent God exists when her life feels like evidence of the opposite. Chris asks how she can learn to believe and know she is heard and is important when she’s unable to perceive the presence of a loving and benevolent God in her life.

What Is God Like?

Among people who acknowledge the existence of God or a higher power (92% of Americans according to a university survey) beliefs tend to vary about what God is. According to this survey, beliefs in what God is like tend to fall into the following four types: Authoritarian (31%), Benevolent (25%), Critical (16%), and Distant (23%).

Where is God?

Whether we think of God in one or more (or none) of these four ways, we often think of God as being “out there” somewhere—like in heaven or throughout the Universe—rather than inside of us. But The Council advises all of us that it’s important to find God within ourselves—in our own consciousness. This can be a difficult concept to grasp if we’re accustomed to thinking of God as outside of us and we’re used to looking for evidence of God’s existence out in the world.
