Do I Have Past Life Baggage With My Boyfriend?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who says she’s been with her boyfriend a few months now and she’s curious about some things she’s noticed in the relationship that she’s a little uneasy about. Sarah says the relationship has been a little more difficult than she expected and wants to understand it better so she can move forward in the most loving way possible. With this in mind Sarah asks The Council if she and her boyfriend are holding on to anything from one or more past lives that they plan on working through in this lifetime?

Around the time Sarah and her boyfriend began dating she also developed arthritis and a few other autoimmune diseases she’d experienced previously, but her lifestyle the past few years enabled her to experience remission of these diseases. Their reappearance seems to have upset Sarah’s life, and she suspects it has something to do with moving her in the direction of her soul’s purpose.

The Council says what would help Sarah physically at this point is to focus on being more flexible and be more open to accepting ideas that she disagrees with. Ask yourself, “Where am I too stiff in my beliefs? What am I not flexible about? Do I see the other side of the coin? Do I allow others to be who they are and not to follow how I wish it should be?”

When you find yourself with immune system problems, the body is telling you that emotionally there’s a battle going on. With your boyfriend, if things don’t go the way you want, is there enough in this relationship to bring the love in? Can you look at your boyfriend and know there are experiences that are needed here? You may not know what these experiences are and you may not understand them. But allow your boyfriend not to be perfect and love him anyway, and love yourself also for accepting your boyfriend’s imperfections.

We are always here to bring love into every situation. When you are more accepting, and not in the way where you accept your situation and are depressed because your relationship isn’t what you originally thought, you can focus on moving forward. Accept and applaud the soul of your boyfriend for what he’s trying to accomplish.

Fuel your body so the joints and organs have what’s needed to work correctly and the body knows you’re honoring it. You need to drink lots of water and green tea. Beans and all kinds of vegetables in any way possible are needed. Low fats are needed as well as some carbohydrates. When you bring love into every situation and love and take care of yourself, the vibration begins to focus on healing and you’ll see a change in your body and in your relationship.

The Council sees a past life in London where she and her boyfriend were siblings with a lot of anger toward each other and competition that didn’t allow closeness and understanding. They didn’t bring love for each other into this life as siblings, and so the two of you thought you’d work on bringing the love into your current lifetime.

When there’s anger, look at it. Here conversation is needed, which can bring about many laughs and new ideas. This current relationship is important to both of you. It will affect all parts of your life. The Council advises you to stay in this relationship and learn from it. It will change for the better.

Sarah says she feels like she’s supposed to help the world heal and she’d like to know if her intuition is true. The Council says she’s partly on the right track. She’s here to help herself heal, see how you do it, and then speak to others about what you’ve learned. You’ll give others help as you go through healing yourself.

Sarah asks The Council about a career change she senses and The Council says at this time Sarah needs to focus on well being and acceptance.

Who Am I and Where Am I From?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Donna, who asks, who am I and where am I from?

The Council says you’ve come from the star system, Pleiades, and many like you who are here from this star system don’t know it.

Pleiadians are here to teach and guide other people to evolve, they have a peaceful nature, and their are millions of them on Earth.

The  careers of all of Pleiadians on Earth are in the healing fields, counseling, and people working with energy. They can heal you by the way they talk to you, by the guidance they give you, and by the touch of their hand. Pleiadians were also guides to people in Atlantis and Lemuria.

Pleiadians easily connect with other people, animals, and plants. This is part of their gift because they’re evolved. They need to be around nature and don’t like to be in big groups. They are more quiet and like to deal with people one on one. Many Pleiadians are disappointed because they can’t seem to do what they intended in their physical bodies.

The reason Donna has chosen to incarnate on Earth at this time is to help the people around her. Her interest in the Pleiadians brings her closer to the calm, healing energy and the light she’s here to share with others, even if it doesn’t wake her up to her mission in this lifetime. This is a beautiful purpose for being here and if she hasn’t done this yet, this will strike a chord within her, and she’ll start looking at and connecting with people, animals, and plants differently.

Donna mentions that her energy healer says she’s not from Pleiades and The Council laughs and asks her to choose which way she wants to believe. And The Council adds that it’s okay whether or not she believes them.

Find the softness, the love,  and the light within you and shine it on other people. You teach other people to be giving and loving by the way you speak and act. This is the purpose of all Pleiadians. You’re here to guide us, help us evolve and feel peaceful, and help us connect with our higher energy.

You’re also here to take care of yourself. And as you do this, you’ll find others who wish to take care of themselves and are looking for answers. The more you connect to this – if it hasn’t happened already – you’ll find more and more people coming to you for guidance and help.

It’s good to read about the Pleiadians and their work on this planet, as well as the Sirians, Arcturians, and people from other star systems who have come to Earth. Read about Atlantis and Lemuria and how the people from the Pleiades guided and taught the people in these times. The book, Starseed Transmissions, by Ken Carey will be helpful. As you read, your knowledge will increase and you’ll find yourself on a path that helps and enlightens others.

The Council closes by wishing joy to everyone on their journeys. And they ask us to always search for more questions and answers to help us grow and bring us along on our path, and help us bring the love that’s in spirit into the Earth path, which is the purpose for all of us.

Listen to the entire 10-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Donna and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Can You Experience Your Twin Flame’s Emotions Before You Meet?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Brooke, who’s in a relationship with her twin flame and she asks if you can experience strong emotions from your twin flame before you even meet them.

The Council begins by saying that a twin flame is a spirit you’ve worked with together in many lifetimes. The Council says you can recognize your twin flame by having a lot in common and that’s the case with Brooke and her partner.

The Council says Brooke and her partner aren’t the only ones to set up a reality where they’ll work with a twin flame. When it’s important for you and your partner to learn something together, a way is created for you to recognize each other. You truly begin to listen to what the other spirit is saying so you can learn from it and bring it into your reality. And as Brooke learns things she can share this and the two of them will grow.

You’re working together, and sometimes it’s on many different lessons you wish to go through, but you need someone to help you go through it, and this is why you’ve created a twin soul. There’s an agreement between the two of you to come together at a certain stage in your lives and you’ll recognize each other by an experience you’re both going through. In your case there are childhood issues you both went through. This brought you together and the learning can last an entire lifetime.

The twin flame situation touches on the lesson of love and trust, and knowing we’re not alone. What you face isn’t a horrible punishment, but it’s what you’ve created to learn from. There’s comfort in knowing someone else has gone through the same thing. You aren’t a bad person if you have a hard time in one area or another. Someone else is sharing this experience and going through it.

There’s a safety in working together with another spirit. The Council advises that whatever you work on or try to understand, put joy into it. Have gratitude for having met and recognized each other, and you’re evolved enough to know that twin flames exist.

Brooke finishes by asking The Council if her partner could have been experiencing her traumatic childhood and she experienced his through their twin flame connection long before they met? And The Council simply says, “Yes.”

Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance and information for Brooke and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

If a Soul Chooses a Difficult Life, Does the Soul Enjoy Suffering?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, which are based on an earlier post titled, Some Interesting Questions About Spirit. ImportantOrNotBlog asks if a soul chooses a life of difficulty full of pain and hardship, does that mean the soul enjoys suffering?

The Council says when you choose, as spirit, whatever you choose before you come into your current reality, you always think you’re a spirit and you’ll know how to handle whatever it is you’ve chosen. But when you come into your reality, you forget how to handle what you’ve chosen and how to turn it towards love.

The purpose of of forgetting is to learn how to work with whatever you’ve chosen and be able to turn it around. When you do this, there is major soul growth. This process can be very difficult for some people. But the more you can accept the hardship you’ve chosen, and show patience, and learn to work with your situation and slowly see it improve, you’ll feel stronger about yourself knowing no matter what the obstacle you’ve created for yourself, you’re working on it.

It’s not that the soul enjoys suffering. It’s important to remember who you truly are as a spiritual being in a physical body. As you’re able to bring the feeling of spirit into your physical reality, the easier it will be for you to experience positive changes.

The Council points out that sometimes there are spiritual contracts to teach people around you by your example because in other lifetimes these people didn’t have the compassion you’re learning in this lifetime. Or maybe the people around you were sick in another lifetime and you took care of them, and now they want to experience the other side of the coin and they choose to care for someone in this lifetime.

There’s a lot going on with people who are experiencing difficulties, and these difficulties aren’t only for the person experiencing them, because these people have agreed with the others around them how each one of them will grow from these difficulties. It’s a great blessing for everyone involved with these difficulties to go through them concentrating on compassion and love.

ImportantOrNotBlog says they understand difficult situations are for soul growth, but they ask, to what end? The Council says there isn’t any end, there’s just growth. When you return to spirit and you see the lives you’ve touched, you want to do more. And so you create lives where you have the opportunity to do more so you grow and the people in your life grow. And the more love you bring into your reality, the less suffering there will be.

ImportantOrNotBlog asks The Council if souls exist at different levels? The Council says if you mean is one soul smarter than the other, they respond that in some lifetimes the answer is yes and in some lifetimes the answer is no, but we’re all growing and everyone grows at their own pace. We’re all trying to evolve into spirit so everyone can experience love.

ImportantOrNotBlog closes by asking if soul growth helps the soul get to a higher spiritual level? The Council says they don’t feel comfortable with the word, level, but they say soul growth will take you to a higher spiritual understanding. It brings more love into your world and you grow. And with this love, as it grows within you, you want to share this love, and you’re in a great hurry to get back into another lifetime so you can stretch that love and grow more from it. And you want to put this love into another reality so others can feel this love and grow from it.

Listen to the entire 7-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for ImportantOrNotBlog and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about this guidance.

In What Direction Will I Become Financially Stable?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Dee, who asks in what direction she’ll become financially stable?

The Council says this is a good question, and to become financially stable you must know you have choices and you’re able to create whatever you desire.

Are the relationships in your life stable? Do you care for people? Do you show love and concern for them? Do you feel happy often? When you get in this vibration of love, happiness, and caring you can create anything.

In other lifetimes that effect her current lifetime, Dee was gifted in the arts and she’s able to explore this option again. She performed in the arenas in Greece. Is she drawn to acting? She should do this as a hobby and see where it takes her.

It would be good for Dee to learn how to organize groups, whether it be for work  or something she does outside of work.

Dee would do well in banking. She has done this in other lives. Learn about money, stocks, and the exchanges. This is a totally different career than the ones mentioned previously, yet this was wanted when she was planning her life in spirit. Perhaps Dee can start in an office area that has to do with banking, money, and trading.

It’s good to look toward working in an area where Dee can be a leader, to show others how things are done. Teaching and explaining things is also good. She wanted to help other people who’ve lost their way, don’t know how to succeed, and don’t know how to change careers. If it’s necessary for Dee to go back to school to learn about helping people in these ways, then it’s a good idea to consider this.

Listen to the entire 3-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Dee and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

What Past and Present Life Choices Cause Chronic Pain?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, InDespair, who says The Council mentions (in a different post) that we choose chronic pain to heal our beliefs from past lives that we’ve chosen to bring into our current lifetime. And InDespair asks, “What beliefs from a past life or lives would cause us to choose enduring chronic pain in our current life.”

The Council begins by saying that chronic pain isn’t always brought in from another lifetime. Sometimes it’s just an experience that’s wanted in your current life.

In another lifetime perhaps you’ve seen someone suffering and didn’t understand it, or didn’t show compassion and help the person who was experiencing it. You may choose to experience this chronic pain in this lifetime so you have more understanding of it, and going forward in this life and future lives, you’ll bring more love to any situation where suffering is involved.

Many people suffer sometimes and they wonder why, and question what they’ve done to deserve this suffering. The Council says they’ve come into this lifetime to have the people around them learn patience and compassion and to understand what you are going through. This pain is chosen to help another soul or family of souls learn from your suffering.

The choice to go through extreme pain, hardships, or anything difficult is always the choice of the individual. Each person planning their reality in spirit will plan what they desire to experience, or they’ll experience something to help another soul go through suffering and have more understanding of it. The experience of suffering is never something  that’s forced on an individual.

Some people choose suffering to learn patience and love and to have some understanding of this experience. Many souls choose suffering to teach others, and there’s still learning on your part as you go through this. Is there a wish to turn the suffering around and heal it?

Perhaps you’ve agreed with other spirits that want to learn about someone going through pain and suffering, and you’ll tell them that you’ll go through this suffering for them. And they’ll learn from this to give you such love and understanding that you’ll have the strength and understanding to turn the suffering around and realize that love conquers everything.

The Council says you could’ve experienced pain in a prior life and didn’t know how to change it and make it better. And you wish to go through this pain in your current life to try and change it this time around. Sometimes in other lifetimes the others around you had this pain and you didn’t understand it or didn’t have patience for it. And so you want to experience this pain in your current lifetime to bring in more love and understanding about this.

The Council says it’s up to the individual whether they choose to heal this pain they’ve chosen. Many times a person will heal this pain when the spirit of another person has learned what it needs to learn from this suffering.

Bob asked The Council what’s in it for the person who chooses to experience chronic pain their whole life so others can have the experience of this. The Council says you are showing love to others by helping them experience what they need to learn and grow. In spirit when someone wishes to learn about suffering, and someone volunteers to go through this so others can experience it, it’s because we all love one another. You volunteer to go through this out of love for these people, even if this love isn’t conscious on a human level. And there’s always spiritual growth involved, even if the person going through the suffering isn’t aware of this growth at the time they’re experiencing it.

The Council say sometimes the person going through suffering becomes wiser about being a spirit in a physical body, having choices, and having the power to create in your life what’s necessary for you to also grow. It’s always a two-way street. Everyone learns from the experience of suffering. That’s the plan.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for InDespair and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

How Can I Develop My Psychic Sense?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, LearningSoulSite, who says she was advised in an earlier session with The Council that her soul would like her to develop psychic abilities and she’s not sure what will be a good starting point. She asks how she’ll understand her psychic gifts and how she should develop them. And finally she asks if there’s anything she should be careful about or protect herself from while working on her psychic sense.

The Council starts by saying that before LearningSoulSite begins developing her psychic ability she should protect herself from her own thoughts and beliefs. Because if you believe there’s something out there that’ll grab you when you meditate and you’re not protected, somehow you’ll create this. And if you believe there’s evil lurking about that you need to be protected from, you’ll create this.

The Council advises LearningSoulSite to work on who she truly is, which is love and light. That is what everything is made of. Within this realm of love, light, and pure energy she can begin to allow herself to connect with the spirit world, and with past lives and future lives. It’s important to know she’s in control of everything that happens and her beliefs will play a part in this.

The Council suggests meditation is the best way to start developing your psychic abilities, even if you sit quietly for 5-10 minutes a day.

But if you want to connect with spirit, a simple way to do this is by concentrating on beauty. When you eat, imagine what you’re eating is filled with love and light and ask yourself how it feels going into your body. When you’re around animals, look for their souls. When you’re in the garden, look with beauty and love at the flowers and connect with the belief you’re one with these flowers.

As you begin to connect with everything you’ve created in your reality, you now begin to open chakras you’ve never worked with before. Know there’s so much more within you and around you. As you accept this belief and it becomes true to you, you’ll automatically open to different energies and different visions. You’ll hear things you can’t hear right now.

Most of this lifetime there’s been a lot of confusion. So when you meditate, concentrate on the third eye center to receive the clarity you’re looking to experience. With this clarity you’ll find it’ll become easier to make decisions. You’ll have a better understanding of the people around you. This is what you wanted to accomplish in your current lifetime. And when you receive this clarity and understanding, you’ll find people will begin speaking to you about what’s going on in their lives, and you’ll know how to help these people.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for LearningSoulSite and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What’s the Purpose of Nazi Holocaust Victim’s Suffering?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Juan, who asks if the spirits of the Nazi Holocaust victims were aware they agreed to be worked, tortured, and starved to death?

The Council says the spirits of Holocaust victims all volunteered to come into that lifetime to play those roles. They knew in spirit before they came there was going to be a mass crisis to teach millions of people what happens when you aren’t in the vibration of love.

The victims knew ahead of time it was going to be a difficult life, but they also knew that lifetime would create opportunities for learning for every soul who lived during that time. And the history that was made will be passed down to future generations who weren’t there to experience it.

Many spirits who where Holocaust victims held the light for everyone who was there. Many came to be with the children who were victims. These brave souls had no idea what they were going to face in that lifetime, but they knew they’d come through it with as much love and caring as possible.

Juan asks The Council, if the Holocaust victims agreed to the horrors they faced, what was the purpose of going through this? The Council says the purpose was to bring in more love and caring and to learn that no matter how bad things get, you have the choice how you’ll face your challenges. The victims found a way to feel love and take care of each other, and to believe more in something greater than themselves. And this lesson spread throughout the world.

Juan asks if the Holocaust was due to a karmic debt and The Council says there is no karmic debt. It was just souls that realized in this world that’s being created, what can we do to bring more love in?

Juan asks what possible benefit can come from the atrocities of the Holocaust? The Council says the benefit that we learn from the experience, never forget what happened, and learn you are so much more than what you think.

Juan’s last question is, what is the purpose of coming to this material dimension to suffer pain, anguish, and agony. The Council says we don’t come to Earth to suffer these things; we come to have a good time. And even though we go through horrible times, when we decided to go through this in spirit we weren’t afraid of it because we knew we’d be coming home to spirit again. This is something we’re going through to learn from. How will we help each other out while we’re here and what will we take back to spirit with us?

The Council closes by reminding us that you always come into the Earth reality with the thought that no matter what happens, I will find a way to show love and change the reality to a more loving one. What can I do to face these challenges? Will I remember who I really am as a spirit in a physical body? Will I choose joy and love? Will I be compassionate no matter what I’m going through? And when I bring more love into this reality, when my time there is over, I’ll have done what I set out to do.

Listen to our entire 12-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Juan and the rest of us on the Holocaust, and let us know how you feel about it.

Career Advice

This  post answers a career advice question for The Council from a reader named Anthony, who says his employment involves the prevention of violence and death. Recently, after leading a response to a crisis that was felt across his country, he feels bored with his normal responsibilities and asks The Council if they see him moving on to a larger role in emergency and crisis response, or perhaps something else?

The Council says working in a crisis center is a loving and compassionate way to help others, but they ask what Anthony is doing right now to bring more peace and balance into his own life and ask him to take a look at this.

The Council sees in the near future a change of location is needed and they suggest if Anthony focuses on this he’ll be able to achieve it.

The Council says Anthony’s talent is working directly with people who are facing problems rather than doing paper work and they suggest he focus on this. Surround himself with the people who will benefit from his presence.

The Council sees within one or two years there will be a very big move where he’ll be handling groups and organizing the help that’s needed on a larger scale. When this time comes, The Council advises Anthony to keep working directly with people who need help. That’s the kind of healing he wishes to do in his life and his healing energy is needed by many.

Bob asked for clarification on the point about Anthony bringing balance into his life. The Council said steps are needed right now to withdraw from his work for a while, perhaps take a vacation or do something else that’s not related to his work. As Anthony takes time for himself, this allows his spirit to bring in more information and healing energy that he’ll need. After he’s given this time to himself he’ll feel better about giving to others.  And The Council wishes Anthony well in his work and they say it’s very important.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council to hear all their advice for Anthony and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

You’re Already the Spirit You Desire to Be

This post answers questions from a reader named Darla, who says she’s heard the reason we’re here on Earth is to raise our vibration and become more like the source or creator. and she asks if we originally came from source, why aren’t we already at that higher level?

The Council says you’re already at this higher level of source, but when you agreed to come into this Earth reality and create your life, you agreed to come down to the lower energy that’s in this reality. And by sharing the vibration of love, understanding, and compassion, you bring this energy from source and spread it into this Earth reality in order to lift it up.

When you are born into this Earth reality there is a forgetfulness, but it’s always your intention, as you go through either a wonderful life or a challenging life, to get to a point where you can remember you are so much more than your physical body.

Often you find it difficult to believe you are spirit in your physical body, but your higher self provides you with many experiences of this and you start to believe there’s something more. When you think something and there’s a desire and you are happy, the right people, job, and circumstances come along. Maybe you’re not at the point where you believe you’re spirit, but you’re opening to the idea there’s something more than what you experience physically.

Darla says she can’t understand the point about all these lives and lessons. The Council says all these lives and lessons are created by her as a spiritual being. Sometimes you incarnate in order to have certain experiences. Sometimes you’ve already had this experience, but you agree to help other spirits who incarnate to deal with whatever this experience involves. This will provide you with a better sense of what you’re going through, but you may not remember it was your agreement to come in and help others.

Darla asks if we’ll ever reach a point of not having to return for more lives. The Council says this can happen whenever you feel you’re ready for that. The choice to come back and have life after life is entirely up to you. You can choose to remain in spirit and help others by sending them the vibration of love, happiness, and joy.

The Council makes clear that it’s up to Darla, in spirit, whether she incarnates on Earth or not. They say there’s no other way to get here. You have to agree in spirit that you want it. No one forces you. It’s always your choice.

Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Darla and the rest of us. We feel this session contains valuable information for anyone trying to make sense of there life. Let us know how you feel about it.

Why Someone Would Choose to be Born with a Cognitive Disability

This post answers Pakt’s question for The Council about why someone would choose to be born with a cognitive disability. She works in a classroom with students who have these disabilities and read that people with Down Syndrome committed suicide in another lifetime.

The Council says people can choose a cognitive disability just for the experience and to understand what this feels like. In another lifetime if someone they knew had this disability and they didn’t show understanding and love, perhaps they’d choose to experience it in this lifetime and to see if they can bring love into it.

And sometimes people will choose a cognitive disability to teach the people around them about this disability. They do not choose to experience a cognitive disability because they’ve committed suicide in another lifetime.

Pakt says she always thought people choose to experience a cognitive disability so the rest of us can learn from these people as opposed to these people learning a lesson. The Council says these people with disabilities also learn. When we choose different experiences, whether they are happy ones or challenging ones, we also choose the people that will go through this with us because of what they want to learn and we can help them. But The Council says we always want to learn from having the experience of a cognitive difficulty or some other difficulty. There is a learning on everyone’s part.

Listen to this brief 2-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Pakt and the rest of us on why someone would choose to experience a cognitive difficulty in this lifetime, and let us know how you feel about it.

Astral Travel, and Communicating with Spirit for Others

This post answers questions from a reader named Dee, who asks The Council why her ability to astral travel began, and also if she’s meant to communicate with spirit for other people.

Dee begins by saying she started to notice her connection with spirit about 3 years ago. It began as small coincidences or synchronicities, evolved into dream visitations, feeling spirit around her, and eventually astral traveling, which began spontaneously.

The Council responds by saying every spirit in this reality (the Earth path) astral travels at night while they are asleep. Sometimes there’s a memory and sometimes there isn’t. Everyone is helping others, visiting others, seeing others who have passed on, learning to set up new lessons for themselves, and more. While the body rests the spirit is experiencing so much more.

Dee says she went through a period where she remembered astral traveling fairly regularly, meeting with her deceased mother and with her spirit guides. She’s also had dreams of people who feel familiar in the dream state but are unknown to her in her waking reality. The Council says in Dee’s waking reality she doesn’t know these people, but they are part of her soul family that she’s worked with in many other lifetimes.

Dee says in the last 6-8 months she hasn’t been recalling her astral travel like she did before. The Council says there’s less need right now to remember what’s being experienced in Dee’s astral travel, but this can easily come back.

Dee says she’s always wondered why (remembering) her astral travel started in the first place since it happened so abruptly. The Council said this projected her into understanding and opening up to so much more than she was open to before. Dee wanted to get into the spiritual realm with more understanding of who she is and what can be done at a quicker level.

Dee says she’s met with her spirit guides in dreams. The Council says many people meet with their guides and spirits that helped them plan their current lifetime. The Council adds that it’s possible to change things we wish to change in our current lifetime during these meetings. In other words, what we planned in spirit isn’t written in stone.

Dee asks if she’s meant to communicate with spirit for other people in addition to herself. The Council says for right now, learn as much as she can for herself and others will come to her with questions, and she can help them out by getting information for them.

The Council closes by saying Dee should go forward and explore, and know that caring for others and showing love and compassion will bring the people to her that need her experience and advice. Work on herself and what she’s experiencing and the rest will come.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Dee and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What is My Spiritual Purpose?

This post is about a question from a reader named Kristi, who asks The Council about her spiritual journey. She says it’s almost like she has a constant magnetic pull to the spiritual realm and when she tries to distance herself from spirit, she ends up right back at it.

The Council asks why she’d want to distance herself from spirit? Her spirit connection reminds her of who she truly is, which is part of why she came into this lifetime. It’s very much a part of Kristi’s life in this incarnation because in so many other lifetimes she’s walked the spiritual path and believed in love and compassion, which is what she came to bring into her current lifetime.

The Council advises daily meditation and for Kristi to read all the books she can find on spiritual channels because she has the ability to channel spirit if she wants to.

The Councils says it’s wonderful that Kristi feels this spiritual influence in her life and asks her to feel in what direction it’s pulling her. This is exactly what she wanted to experience in this lifetime. Don’t pull away from spirit. This journey can take her to many different places an help her meet many people who will be attracted to her vibration.

Kristi didn’t plan in spirit which way she wanted this spiritual pull to take her. She only knew that she wanted to be deeply connected to the spiritual realm.

The Council advises Kristi to use her imagination to visualize herself in many different situations and see what feels best to her and follow this direction. Begin with small steps. Each step will bring her to another and another and she’ll fulfill what she has planned for this lifetime. She wanted the excitement of being on a spiritual path and to discover her journey as she moves along her path.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Kristi and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Past Lives with Her Friend

This post answers a question from a reader named Merry, who asks The Council about past lives she and her friend Melanie (or Mel) may have shared. About 2 years ago Mel reached out to support Merry when she had a difficult health situation. The Council says it’s wonderful when you pre-plan in spirit to share your life with someone and you create a situation where the other spirit says they’ll jump in at that time.

Merry says ever since then she and Mel have synced in ways she’s never experienced before. They understand each other’s weirdly similar family dynamics, their health issues, histories, their goal of wholeness, and they even look similar. They mentor each other and challenge each other to improve their situations. The Council says it’s wonderful how creative you can be in spirit and in the physical body, where both of you go into such detail creating similar lives to make sure you don’t miss each other.

Merry asks if The Council can confirm the she and Mel have shared one or more lives together. And The The Council humorously asks if that’s a serious question at this point.

Around the early 1900s in Virginia they were twin brother and sister happily working on a farm in a very close family.

There was a lifetime in Ireland. Again you were brother and sister and worked the land. This was a time of famine and life was harder than in Virginia.

You were married to each other in Egypt and you both were doctors who traveled to less populated areas to help people. You knew how to heal both the physical as well as the mind and were very successful.

In the 1800s there was a life with a lot of traveling on ships and working on the docks.

The Council advises Merry to support each other. As the relationship grows, you’ll communicate to each other about what you see other people going through, and discuss how you can come up with ideas that will help these people in their lives.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Merry and the rest of us, and let us know your feelings on this post.

Looking for a Man in Her Life

This post answers a question for The Council from Still Looking, who asks if there’s a relationship in her future. Still Looking is in her thirties and ready for a beautiful relationship. She’s tried positive affirmations, meditations, healing, psychic readings, and self-love to make this happen, but her relationship hasn’t arrived yet.

Years have passed and she’s beginning to accept that she’ll be on her own and she says she’s okay with this. But she asks if the psychics are just telling her what she wants to hear, or is there someone for her?

The Council begins by saying it’s entirely up to Still Looking whether she attracts a man into her life. They say because she has a desire for a relationship, it’s there for her in another dimension. Her work is to bring this relationship into her physical reality. And the only way to do this is by believing it’s there and not to get depressed that it hasn’t happened yet.

Every time Still Looking has the thought her relationship isn’t here yet and maybe these psychics are wrong, it only delays the relationship she wants to experience. Be as positive as you can and keep focusing on the fact that this relationship is there.

Still Looking should think to herself all the reasons why she’d like a relationship; what she’d be doing in this relationship; where she’d live; how the future will be; until she makes herself so happy from imagining these things that she’s actually able to bring this relationship into her physical reality.

The Council sees Still Looking had a pre-birth plan to have a partner around this time in her life if she’s willing to do the inner work. The pre-birth intention was to be with a partner and do much traveling together, and they’ve done this in two or three other lives together.

The Council says Still Looking will be included in the life this partner is already living and this will open her up to helping others. She should add this into the details of creating the partner she desires because it’s what she had in mind in her pre-birth plans.

The Council says Still Looking needs to become the creator in her life. It doesn’t matter what anyone else tells her. She creates a partner with her belief that she can. She creates him with her thoughts and feelings of this happening, but don’t put any pressure on herself that she must be in this relationship by a certain date.

The Council says there is someone for Still Looking as long as this is her desire and she’s willing to believe and create this.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Still Looking and the rest of us on how to create what we desire, and let us know your feelings on this subject.

Creating What You Desire

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who explains to The Council they’re convinced they can create the reality they desire, but they get depressed when things  seem like they’re working out and then don’t turn out the way they’d like.

Creating what you desire

The Council says when you give up because things aren’t happening exactly when and how you want them to, this makes it harder to create what you desire. They recommend staying in the energy of faith, love, and your desires; stay with your imagination and the feeling of what it would be like to already have what you want. The Council says by staying with the energy of what you truly desire this indicates your faith in your ability to create what you want.

Anonymous asks The Council for advice on their difficulty dealing with people, and they say the expectation they will be disappointed is hanging around and they carry this with them in their relationships. The Council says it’s part of Anonymous’s purpose in this lifetime to face this challenge and to learn how to create the kind of vibration they need to be in and the kind of thoughts and feelings they need to have.

The Council says in their current lifetime they wanted to experience going from having nothing to having everything they desire. And they say Anonymous has already created what they desire in non-physical vibration. Now they need to learn how to bring their desires into their physical reality.

The Council asks if Anonymous is giving them self  enough love. Unless they love them self  how can they receive this love from others. The Council recommends sitting daily and asking what they truly desire at this moment and imagine you have this. As you create with your thoughts and imagine it’s already in your life and you’ll see these things begin to come to you.

Other lifetimes

The Council says the other lifetime that affects Anonymous the most with relationships took place in a village that was under attack and everyone in the village planned to leave the village for safety. You decided to go your own way rather than go with everyone else and you died. You realize now that cutting yourself off from the others wasn’t the answer and you need to learn to feel safe connecting with people. Companionship in your current lifetime will help you heal what you lost in this other lifetime in this village.

Career

Anonymous ask what career they will be most successful, and The Council advises any career that gets them to focus on other people is the direction to go right now. The Council feels there’s a lot of work for Anonymous to do, but they also feel this can be accomplished.

The Council mentions starting a hobby that gets Anonymous involved with other people and as they help these people Anonymous will change how they feel about them self, they will grow, and they’ll be led down the path they’ve planned in spirit before they came into this lifetime.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council (below) and hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us.

A Desire for a More Satisfying Career

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Diana, who says she’s been trapped in unfulfilling office jobs for 20 years and would love to focus on her creativity, art, healing work, and group skills. She says she’s despaired for many years not knowing how to fulfill her potential because she has no money for trainings, she’s tired all the time, and has very little time to develop her interests.

The Council says they see this lifetime is a continuation of another lifetime where Diana was able to see other peoples auras and feel their emotions. The Council suggests Diana meditate and ask in her meditations to be able to connect with other people and to see their brightness again.

As Diana meditates she’ll get different thoughts and pictures in her head. Begin to draw people you see and the light and colors you see around them. Do this for awhile  with friends and family. Diana can become very good at this and it will begin to bring in the financial help she’s looking for. Many people will want drawings of their aura and The Council feels she’ll do very well with this.

The Council advises that when you do what you enjoy, the vibration around you lifts. Focusing on how to draw other people and their auras will take Diana’s mind away from the things she feels are her problems. Her focus will be more on the spiritual of the people she meets. As Diana connects with this spiritual vibration, she’ll attract the right partners and the money she needs. She’ll find her whole life begin to change.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session to hear all The Council’s guidance for Diana and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Helping Abused Animals

This post is inspired by a comment from EG, who says they see so much animal abuse and cruelty and they feel like they can’t do much to help.

The Council says the reason these animals take on abuse in this lifetime is to awaken people to what’s going on and to get more of us to have the courage to step forward and stop this abuse. It is the abused animals way of bringing more love into this planet.

You can ask yourself, what are you doing to change this abuse? If you help one animal, you have made a change. You have showed caring and love and are part of the change that you want in this reality.

The Council says it can be sad to witness abuse, but remind yourself you are spirit and now that you’ve seen this abuse you can do something about it and go into help mode to change it. That is why your attention is being drawn to this abuse.

The Council says as you reach out and help, you will feel the change within you. Your higher self will fill you with the feeling of love and being proud of yourself because you are part of this change.

The sad part is if you notice abuse and walk away from it, expecting someone else to make the change. You are seeing the abuse because your spirit is bringing you to it because it’s part of how you want to help in this reality by bringing love into it.

In their closing The Council asks all of us to remember our promise as we came into this reality to bring love from spirit with us in everything we do. And they say that is what needs to be meditated on.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for EG and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Moving Past an Illness Phobia

This post is inspired by a reader who goes by the name, Anon. She says she contacted us last year when she was pregnant with her second child and she was unsure if it was what she wanted. She’s just given birth to a baby girl and says she loves her to pieces. Anon has also been let go from her recent employment and feels unsure where she’s going in her life.

The Council reminds Anon her old life without the new child and with her job has come to an end and she’s creating a new beginning. Sometimes when you don’t know where you’re going, your soul is putting your life together with the different options you thought of before you came into this reality. This is her situation now.

The Council advises Anon to just be and enjoy her life as it is right now rather than looking for another job right away. The direction her life will take will be shown to her in time. Enjoy her baby and in that joy her other answers come.

Anon says she has a huge phobia of being sick. She constantly worries about catching bugs and it takes the joy from parenting.

The Council says if she keeps focusing on sickness her thoughts will bring sickness to her. They see this fear coming from several lifetimes where there was a lot of sickness, but they can see it’s not in her pre-planning of this life. Her body is strong. When a child gets sick, that doesn’t mean she’ll get sick also.

She’s had the experience of sickness in other lives and doesn’t need to experience it this lifetime. She’s here to use her knowledge of sickness from these other lives to help family and friends move through it in this life. They say the only way she’d have problems with sickness now is if she continues to focus on this and stayed in this fear.

The Council sees a wonderful and creative life for Anon. They remind her she is the creator of this life and from what they see, she will be pleasantly surprised.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anon and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Insights into a Relationship

This post is inspired by a reader named Diana who asks The Council for insight into her 6 month old relationship with her male partner. She’s 42 years old and wants to settle down, but she’s torn about whether to continue this relationship. On one hand they have a deep connection and compatibility on many levels. On the other hand Diana finds her partner’s struggle to cope with the daily practicalities of life quite unsettling. The thought of ending this relationship feels almost unbearable, but she feels stuck with moving forward in the relationship.

The Council suggests Diana look at all the things to be grateful for with her partner. The relationship is not enough for her because she focuses on his shortcomings. Start focusing on things in the relationship that bring her joy.

As Diana begins to appreciate this relationship, The Council asks her to look at what she’s doing to help her partner. Relationships come together as an opportunity to show love to each other, show each other how to grow, and how to transform their challenges. When Diana feels her partner isn’t making good life choices, rather than blame him she can speak with him about other choices and gently show him the way. The Council sees that over time the circumstances of this relationship can improve.

The Council recommends if Diane doesn’t want to move forward with marriage or living together, move forward on how she views these activities and with the thought of helping her partner. If she can take these steps, the relationship will become more of what she wants.

The Council says looking for her partner to improve to make her feel better is not the answer. As Diana begins to appreciate this relationship and sees her partner change, there will be a softening within her and she will allow herself to see what she wants to change within herself.

The Council feels that while the choice to leave this relationship is always Diana’s, they see at this time there is no reason to leave. There is a lot that can be changed and much more that can be appreciated about each other that will help the relationship grow and become more of what she desires.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all the guidance for Diana and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

How Remote Viewing Works, and Helping Others With It

This post is inspired by questions from a long-time reader named Jan who now asks The Council about how her friend, William, is able to remotely view places and activities that people like Jan visit in the past, present, and future, and how they can best use this skill for the benefit of humanity.

The Council says when you are able to do remote viewing, you are very connected to your higher spiritual self. They say because we are all one, in a spiritual sense, someone who is able to view remotely is theoretically able to know anything about anyone, anywhere.

The Council says remote viewing works as we become more than our human selves. With the belief in remote viewing and by trying to accomplish this, you open up part of yourself that’s ready to see what you choose to view remotely. Because we are all connected and all one, when you view remotely you are really looking at an expanded version of yourself that includes others you are connected to.

Many people, just by meditation, are able to view remotely. The first part is believing you are able to do it, and then having the patience to try it and set yourself free to experience it.

The Council tells Jan that she and Will can use this ability to help others by viewing their bodies for health information. They are also able to communicate with animals and plants. You can go into the future and past lives to see what you have come through. You can look at different lives that different parts of you are experiencing now. The Council says there is no limit to what you are able to do.

The Council says in each area the focus should always be to place the vibration of love, peace, and unity for our whole planet. And as you do this you unite everyone in spirit, and it is gradually experienced in the human body. Even in areas where there is distress and war, you are able to remotely view this and send light and prayer. The Council says to believe in the information you get and you will always lead people in the direction where help will be found.

Listen to the entire 9-minute session with The Council on remote viewing to hear all their guidance for Jan and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Tracey’s Miscarriage and Her Son’s Search for Love

This post is inspired by a reader named Tracey who asks The Council, after reading our post about Beth’s abortions, if the soul of the child she recently miscarried was either the same soul she aborted many years ago, or if it was the soul of her present son, because he’s always so insecure when he’s not with Tracey.

The Council doesn’t see that either of these souls was the soul she recently miscarried. The say it was a soul who wanted the experience of being in a human body, but not having to complete an entire lifetime. In the rest of this session The Council gives Tracey advice on her son.

The Council says Tracey’s son will be working through many abandonment issues in this lifetime and they suggest showing him a lot of patience, love, and reassurance. When he was in spirit he realized there were some fears he wanted to experience and then experience the strength within the fear when he’s given love.

The Council also sees Tracey’s son will need a lot of confidence in this lifetime and they suggest giving him a lot of praise and following through on things Tracey says she will do concerning her son.

The Council suggest Tracey buy her son children’s books on angels and spirits, and books on how we are here in this lifetime always looking for love and showing love. And they say a good place to start is books by the spiritual healer, Louise Hay.

Tracey’s son wanted to experience courage, independence, and fearlessness in this lifetime and give these emotions to others. He wants to experience the fears first, have the reassurance from Tracey, and then start to believe in these assurances and knowing he is safe. Tracey should always point out to her son that whatever he’s afraid of, there is love in it, and to search for this love with him.

Listen to the entire 7-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Tracey, her son, and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Psychic Abilities in Other Lifetimes?

This post is inspired by a question from Darla, who says she’s had psychic experiences her entire life and has always felt very spiritually connected. But she struggles with the anxiety these psychic experiences cause and asks The Council if she was psychic in other lifetimes.

The Council says when people begin to tap into their psychic ability, in some cases it causes anxiety and these people imagine they’ve done something wrong in a past life and are afraid. But The Council says your psychic ability is part of who you really are and everyone has these abilities.

In a lifetime in Germany The Council says Darla had the ability to hold objects like jewelry in her hands and receive psychic information for people from these objects. (In our session they refer to this as Kinesiology; we suspect a more appropriate term is Psychometry.) And they say Darla also had the ability in that lifetime to see a person’s problems and the guidance that benefited them.

The Council says because Darla helped people with her psychic ability in another lifetime, this ability is appearing to her again in this lifetime. And they suggest she read books on mediums and begin to study auras. She brought this psychic ability into her life again so she could help herself and others.

The Council doesn’t see a deep rooted fear that Darla is asking about. Instead they see this fear as something in Darla’s present life and it stems from a lack of familiarity with her psychic perceptions. They advise her to play more with her psychic ability and they predict this fear will disappear.

The Council says Darla wants to discover more about herself in this lifetime than what she experiences in normal day to day physical living. In spirit she thought it would be fun to face fearful situations in her life and see if she could find the courage to turn this fear around. These are the reasons she decided to bring this psychic ability into this lifetime, and The Council says she’ll be able to do this.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to get all their guidance for Darla and the rest of us.

What Is My Purpose in This Lifetime?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Dianna, who asks The Council what her life purpose is. Diana has been training as a teacher and teaching overseas for the past 5 years. She says she knows we all make soul contracts before we come into this life, and asks what she’s supposed to be doing or learning in this  lifetime.

The Council begins by saying many souls incarnate with a soul contract to accomplish specific things they’re interested in experiencing. And there are other souls who wish to create their lives as they go along, without pre-planning before birth what they want to accomplish.

We all plan to bring the vibration of love into our lives, have fun, and not take life so seriously, but this second group of people are free to decide within their current life how they wish to accomplish this rather than pre-planning ahead of time. And The Council says Dianna is one of these souls who wished to create her life as she went along.

Although these people don’t pre-plan what they want to accomplish, they have in common with all souls the desire to learn about an emotion like love, abandonment, sadness, shame, grief, or loneliness, and to turn the difficult emotions around with love.

The Council says Dianna’s purpose in this lifetime is to experience as much as she can and to bring love into these experiences. They say to look for clues in what she wants to do by examining her teaching experiences and the work she did before she taught to see what brought her the most joy. Or she can already have ideas about what she’d like to try but hasn’t gotten around to? And they say Dianna wanted to be a bringer of light, understanding, joy, love, and support for those people she meets along her path.

It’s good for Dianna to work within a community and teach about nature if she hasn’t gone in that direction already. The Council says as she prepared to enter this lifetime there was a great desire to travel and to help the people she met who needed someone to uplift them and give them a new perspective on what they were experiencing.

Even when we make a pre-birth contract and experience our reality the way it was planned, at all times we have the ability to change this pre-planning. With this ability Dianna has the freedom to focus on a particular career, or travel more as she feels the desire to move on. The Council says the choice is always there.

Dianna was able to connect with the spirit of trees and plants and had a green thumb in other lifetimes and this is able to be experienced again in this lifetime as a career or as a hobby. The Council also see more travel would be good for Dianna because that is what was desired. But they add if she finds herself someplace she doesn’t want to move from, this is fine because there wasn’t any plan to live her life a specific way.

Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Dianna and the rest of us.

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 Pre-Birth Plan With a Manic-Depressive Mother?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Susan about her and her mother’s pre-birth spiritual plan for this lifetime. Susan says her relationship with her mother was often painful, especially when she was younger, because her mother was a bi-polar manic-depressive. And she asks why didn’t family members step in to protect her.

The Council says Susan planned it this way. And her planning comes from another life she and her mother shared as orphan boys living on the streets and stealing to survive, maybe around the early 1800s. They both experienced a lot of violence and hate in that lifetime with no understanding and no love, just a will to survive.

When they both left that reality, as spirits they thought it would’ve been good if they learned how to forgive and understand. And so they decided to create this life together where her mother would be harsh and she would experience a desire to care for her and learn to forgive her. And what she learned about forgiving she would share with her mother when they returned to spirit.

The Council says knowing about this past life will help Susan a great deal with her relationship with her mother in this lifetime. And they ask, can she forgive her mother for the manic-depression she created so Susan could have an experience of that. Can she love her mother because she was willing to go though this disease to push Susan to understand and find forgiveness in her heart? That is what Susan wanted to experience in this lifetime. And if they follow through with their intentions, they will reverse the roles in a future lifetime and Susan will be harsh so her mother can learn to forgive.

Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Susan. We find this session to be particularly fascinating.

Will My Upcoming Abortion Affect My 1-Year Old Son?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Tracy who’s about 2 months pregnant and scheduled to have an abortion the week after she posted her comment. After reading our post on Beth’s abortion she felt at ease, but has difficulty believing that karma won’t get her or her 1-year old son and asks about that. This will be Tracy’s third abortion and she asks if these souls have come back into her life. And she asks for advice on her spirituality, which she struggles with.

The Council starts by saying Tracy’s abortion won’t have a negative impact on her son. They say karma is what you believe and wish to create in your many lifetimes. They say there isn’t any monster karma that will make life miserable for her or her son, and ask Tracy to let go of the fear something in the future will affect them.

The Council says each of Tracy’s three abortions was pre-planned by her in spirit before she was born. They were created so she could learn about the gift of life and how wonderful it is to allow souls to come into this life and create the reality that soul chooses. And they ask Tracy what she has learned from each of these abortions.

The Council says these aborted souls have not returned to Tracy’s life, but have helped her understand her part in creating her son’s life. And they say she wants to understand the spirituality of becoming a parent and to be supportive of what her son creates rather than being a controlling mother.

The Council asks Tracy to meditate on the gift she and her son have given each other. And when she realizes she is a spirit helping another spirit move forward on his path she’ll experience great joy and love, not only for her son, but also for the souls she aborted.

The Council finishes by counseling Tracy to bring love into every situation and ask herself how she feels with each experience she creates. And they say to always ask for more understanding, more acceptance, and more allowing.

Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to receive all The Council’s guidance for Tracy.

Are All Abortions Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who goes by the name, MangoJuice13, who asks: Are all abortions an agreed upon contract between souls before birth?

MangoJuice13 read our post, Was I Correct in Aborting My Pregnancy?, and was interested to learn the reason for the abortion in that post was to challenge a woman named Laura to see how people swayed her opinion or pushed her to do something she didn’t want to do. MangoJuice13 says she’s in a similar situation.

She made a decision to abort out of fear after her partner pressured her. She says she feels guilty and angry, and wishes she had chosen differently. And she asks: What was the purpose of this abortion and what lesson was it meant to teach her?

The Council says all pregnancies are agreed upon in spirit before birth, but all abortions are not pre-planned. They say sometimes the abortion is pre-planned in spirit. And sometimes the souls agree to come together in a pregnancy, look at what is going on in their reality, and decide then whether to abort the fetus or not. And the soul of the fetus lovingly understands and accepts whatever decision is made.

The Council says MangoJuice13’s abortion was the opposite of what’s been discussed often on our blog. In this situation the soul came forward in spirit and said it wanted to experience being aborted, just living in the womb and not coming into this reality. After the soul expressed the desire to experience abortion, MangoJuice13 stepped forward in spirit and said she would help this soul experience this. This was not a situation where MangoJuice13 wanted to experience an abortion to learn something. It was to help another soul have this experience.

The Council asks MangoJuice13 to now look at her relationship with her boyfriend and figure out if it’s the right relationship for her going forward. And to ask if the people around her are supportive, or are they not allowing her to be who she wishes to be. The Council says that is what she wished to experience.

The Council sees MangoJuice13 developing strength, making a decision to get pregnant again, and deciding if it will be with her current boyfriend or another. And that was a purpose of this experience.

Listen to the entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to answer MangoJuice13’s question and receive the benefit of their full guidance.

Past Life as a Healer Can Be Brought into this 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.

How to Love Yourself

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Sujata who quotes the author, Anita Moorjani, and her advice to love ourselves. Sujata asks how we can love our self naturally, rather than force ourselves to think positively and suppress our negative thoughts.

The Council says we’re here on Earth to love our selves, but we are human and will experience human thoughts and feelings. They say there’s nothing the matter with thinking negative thoughts. They recommend acknowledging them rather than sweeping them under the rug, and trying to love the part of our self that thinks these thoughts. And they also suggest you look for ways to make these negative thoughts more positive.

The Council says it’s impossible to love ourselves without also loving others because we’re all connected. They suggest the way to improve your vibration is to practice sending love to others rather than just trying to love yourself.

Listen to the entire 7-minute recording of our session with The Council to answer Sujata’s question below.

Relationship Lessons and Passing Them On

This post is inspired by questions from Christine, who says she’s having a difficult time after ending a relationship she was in last year.

The Council says what Christine considers love and what her ex-boyfriend considers love is not the same. He felt love for Christine involved controlling her and keeping her where she was. He thought this was for Christine’s own good and for her protection, but it was more that he could feel in control and safe.

This was overwhelming for Christine and wasn’t allowing either of them to be the spiritual beings they truly are. The Council feels the ex-boyfriend’s challenges of anger and his need for control fed his insecurity and prevented him from bringing in the love his spiritual being desired to experience. Under these circumstances Christine’s higher self gave her the strength to put an end to the relationship.

The Council says it’s understandable Christine will feel depressed over ending this relationship, but they suggest she look at her knowledge it needed to end, how she removed herself from the situation, and what she has learned so she doesn’t fall into the same situation again.

The Council advises Christine to begin creating the kind of relationship she wants by imagining how this relationship feels and what it looks like. By changing her focus from the past to the present and future, Christine will be able to move forward in her desired direction. She can let go of the fear her next relationship will duplicate what she’s just come through and begin to think about what she’s learned from this relationship. She now knows the danger signs of being manipulated.

The Council says Christine should honor herself for learning the lessons this relationship offered and how she freed herself from it rather than stay until it became even more challenging. She’s many steps ahead of where she could have been. Christine’s ex-partner will go on to learn his lessons another way; perhaps with another partner, or being very lonely, but these are his challenges, not Christine’s.

The Council says this relationship was pre-planned in spirit by Christine and her ex-boyfriend and if she must think about it rather than focusing on the new relationship she wants to create, she should think about it with joy rather than depression. Her ex-boyfriend agreed in spirit to push Christine to develop and learn from this experience that she deserved better and needed to protect herself. And Christine had a desire to learn how to take care of herself in a severe situation.

The Council sees in Christine’s future she will have the opportunity to help another woman in a similar situation and they advise her to learn all she can from the relationship with her ex-boyfriend so she can help this woman. The Council says this is a more productive focus and it will allow her to create a more loving experience for herself.

The Council makes the interesting point toward the end of the session that when souls return to the world of spirit, they will meet the souls who put them through these horrible experiences in their physical reality and they will love them and say thank you for presenting them with these opportunities to grow.

Listen to the entire 21-minute session (below) to experience all of The Council’s guidance for Christine and the rest of us.

Searching for Better Feeling Answers

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Tracy who asks, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” and “What if we are sad, selfish spirit, and hurting so bad?”

The Council says they have never seen anyone not succeed on any level. They say succeeding is the process of feeling good, and there is always something in your life to feel good about. But perhaps Tracy can’t remember those times right now. Review your life, going back as early as you can, and The Council is sure you will find times where you succeeded. There is always some success in your life. When you look for those times you will find them.

The Council understands how Tracy can feel sad and hurt, but that’s because of what she believes and has planned to experience in this lifetime. But opportunities will continually present themselves and she has the power to change. Her greatest tool in this lifetime is choice, and she can always choose to look for something good. Or she can do something good for someone else. When you do something for another person you will automatically start to feel better.

The Council says some people chose to experience hardships their entire life because they are learning from it and want to experience it to the fullest extent. And you don’t know what the soul is trying to accomplish through this. But when you return to spirit everything is okay and you have the opportunity to decide what you want to do with this experience.

The Council says if Tracy has seen love but not taken advantage of it, she needs to look at why this is the case. This will involve deep soul searching. Because she’s asking these questions now, she can take this opportunity to look at her life differently. As long as she is alive, Tracy has the power to sort this out.

As  everyone in spirit sees it, Tracy has a successful life. There is no failure in spirit. There are just experiences, and what you decide to do with them.

The Council says in the beginning of Tracy’s lifetime she had the idea she wasn’t enough as a person. They add Tracy was lonely and around people who weren’t able to live a normal experience. This loneliness begins to shut down Tracy’s belief in what she deserves. And when she believes this, she will create situations that will prove that belief is true, until she begins to question and know she is so much more than a physical person, and that she has the power to change her life. These questions are coming forward precisely so Tracy’s life can change, and The Council sees this as great growth and a wonderful crossroads.

The Council says Tracy has time to make choices that will change her experience, regardless of what she experienced when she was younger. As long as you are in a physical body you have the ability to see things differently. If you can send love to the people in your life that you feel were not good to you, or to any situation that wasn’t right, there is growth and there is change.

Before you come into this lifetime and when you come back to spirit, you know that no matter how hard it’s been, you are not stuck in your physical reality. You are coming home.

There’s a lot of information in the recording (below) that’s difficult to include in this session overview . Listen to the entire 19-minute session to appreciate all The Council’s guidance for Tracy and anyone who is having difficulty in this lifetime.

Past Lives with Ex-Boyfriend and His Mother?

This post answers an anonymous reader’s question about whether she knows her ex-boyfriend and his mother from a previous lifetime.

The Council was quick to interject while Bob read this question, that we all know each other. In retrospect this comment raises some interesting questions, but we let them pass and concentrated on the more specific aspects of Anonymous’s question. Perhaps The Council will shed more light on this comment in one or more future sessions.

The Council says that while Anonymous shares many lifetimes with these people, they prefer to look at the ones that relate to the life she’s living now. They say one reason for her familiarity with them is that before this lifetime the three of them worked very well together, while still in spirit, to help little children return to spirit from their physical lives.

The Council says because the three of them enjoyed this spiritual experience so much, they decided to incarnate into this physical life, “to sort of stir things up, and experience more situations where you could all be in the helping role.”

Bob raises the question of Anonymous not currently being with her ex-boyfriend. And The Council replies that whether they were helping each other or those around them, the idea was to bring love into every situation. Just because they’re not together now doesn’t mean they didn’t achieve this goal while they were together. And it doesn’t mean they saw it necessary to stay together for this whole incarnation. The Council adds sometimes people come together for the short-term to experience whatever they have planned, and then they move on.

When Bob asks about past lives these three may have shared that are relevant to their current life, The Council repeats there are many. And they say they believe Anonymous is able to tap into these past lives by asking for this information and meditating on it.

The Council sees the three of them were together as men in the early 1800s working with children in orphanages and children who were abandoned to the streets. They created a community of people that fed these children and tried to find them homes.

The Council asks Anonymous whether her relationship with the ex-boyfriend and his mother helped create a feeling she’d like to continue helping children in this lifetime. They add it would be good for her to meditate on how she can help others, and this will fulfill her spiritual desire to share and bring love into this lifetime.

Listen below to the entire recording of our 8-minute session with The Council to answer Anonymous’s question and feel free to offer your feedback. Please forgive us for some minor technical difficulties we had with the audio during this session.

Angels, Spirit Guides, and Other Non-Physical Beings

This post answers a question from a reader named Jan about angels, guides, spirits, channeled entities, and other non-physical beings who watch over and interact with human beings. Jan  understands she’s an eternal soul here to bring love from spirit, but she’s fascinated by The Council’s take on these other non-physical beings.

The Council begins by mentioning that angels are spiritual beings that haven’t had a physical life as a human being. But many other spirits and guides have lived physical lives in human bodies and come back to us in the form of channeled guidance. The Council also mentions that although angels are made from light and energy, they can appear to humans in any way we believe they will look.

The Council says when these spirits and guides leave their human bodies they often volunteer to help the humans that remain by coming to us with healing or channeled information that’s brought to us by people who allow this information to come through them.

The Council says it’s the energy and the feeling of love that comes through the words rather than the words themselves, and they promise if you read or listen to it, the understanding will come to you a little at a time.

The Council reminds us that even though we may be in a human body, part of us is still simultaneously in the spirit world. This can be a surprise for those of us who think when we come into a human body we leave spiritual reality behind.

When Bob asked The Council about non-physical beings who might be interested in spreading fear instead of love, they respond that many people have a need to believe there’s something evil ‘out there’ that’s creating all this horrible stuff  that’s going on. The Council says we’ve created this to turn it around – to realize the fear and evil do not exist.

The Council says spirit is working very hard to constantly send love and supportive energy to us humans, and they are answering our questions, whether we get the answer in a dream or a feeling.

Listen to the entire 9-minute recording of our session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jan and her question on non-physical beings.

Why Do Young People Get Cancer?

This post answers a question from a long-time follower of our blog named Susan, who also has her own WordPress blog: Life Is A Journey…Not A Guided Tour. Susan says she understands that diseases like cancer can be created from a lifetime of fear, but she wonders how someone very young can get cancer. She’s heard it can be to balance karmic energies or help another soul with a life lesson, and she asks The Council for their thoughts.

The Council says there’s a lot of talk about having to pay back karma or balance karma, and they say this isn’t the way karma works (unless that’s what you believe). They say it’s more like in one lifetime you experience good health and you see people who have poor health. And in another lifetime you wonder what it would be like to experience poor health and grow from this.

The Council wants to make clear that poor health is a conscious spiritual choice, not a punishment. They add that you sometimes choose poor health to help others deal with this, sometimes you choose poor health to learn compassion, and sometimes you choose poor health to become more loving and understanding.

While Susan seems to assume it takes a long lifetime of experiencing fear in order to develop cancer, The Council says you choose your family based on the experiences you desire. A child is able to experience fear while still in its mother’s womb and develop cancer within a very short period. Or it can plan to experience cancer because they want to leave this physical reality early, or to help the souls around them experience this. Whatever the case, The Council says it is always planned before coming into this physical reality.

The whole purpose of going through a life and death situation is to have the experience, to allow the souls around them to have the experience, and in some manner bring love into the situation.

The Council talks about what it’s like for a soul to choose cancer to help the other souls in it’s life learn from this. And then closes by saying when someone is experiencing poor health, the best thing you can do is send them love and remember they are spirit in a physical body choosing to experience this. And if they wish to live through this illness, you are supportive of this. And if they wish to leave this physical reality at this time, you’ll be supportive of this also.

Listen to the entire 18-minute session below to hear all The Council’s guidance on why young people might choose to get seriously ill.

Bringing Love Into Negativity

This post answers several questions from an anonymous reader named D, who says it’s been a while since she last spoke to us, but feels she’s moved mountains since then and is finally learning to heal from within. D continues that once she opened her heart and started asking questions, she discovered a new world that taught her about life and her purpose on Earth.

D’s has worked in New York for 16 years and says she never realized how negative an environment it was until she became a more positive person. The Council says D speaks of negativity as if it’s something unwanted, but there are many many people who can’t get to a positive place until they experience negativity. And when they become positive there’s great appreciation for what the negative has taught them.

D finds it’s easier to connect with her higher self when she’s in her comfort zone. And The Council says it’s in this quiet time you can hear your guides, stay connected to source, and get help with what you experience as negativity. They go on to say that you create this negativity to see how you can bring the love you are in spirit into these situations. They advise sitting for 5-10 minutes a day in this quiet and she will hear what she needs to hear, feel what she needs to feel, and connect to who she truly is.

The Council says many people don’t understand what most people call negativity is really something we as spirit have brought into our reality. What we consider annoying people or situations are really wonderful souls who choose to be part of our negativity and allow us to see these situations differently, bring love into them, and grow.

D asks if prayer, meditation, and guidance are the best ways to communicate with spirit guides when we need advice, and The Council says yes. When I asked the difference between the three The Council said prayer is asking and talking, meditation is listening to your higher self, and intuition is the voice of your higher self.

D asks how she can teach others when they’re so close-minded. The Council says people aren’t close-minded; they are searching and growing at their own pace. Teaching is more than words, and some people aren’t ready to hear what you say. You teach by your actions and by example. When you show love, when you show how you’ve grown and how you handle things differently, that teaches more than words.

D says her heart keeps pointing her to Ireland, a place she’s never been and knows nothing about, and asks if there’s a reason her spirit keeps pointing her in that direction. The Council says if she feels this in her heart, this is her intuition and why wouldn’t she go.

The Council suggests D move forward with the main reason she came into physical reality: to bring the love she is in spirit into it. Her negativity is there to teach her to turn it around and help her grow. It may be hard for her to believe that when she looses patience or is angry with someone, it is another part of her in this other person, coming forward to give her more understanding. We are all connected.

Listen to the entire 26-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance during this wonderful session.

Helping Others

This post is inspired by questions from Barry, who wants to know why his higher self woke him with chest pains that sent him to the hospital. A cardiac problem was ruled out, but he asks why this happened and how to avoid it in the future.

The Council also sees no physical disability to worry about and asks Barry what the focus of his attention was during the episode. Was it fear or was it hope that things would get better?

This was a lesson about what happens to people around him who experience illness. Does he understand the emotions? Does he have the feeling of empathy and love for people around him with unhealthy bodies?

When family or friends are going through a similar situation, can he have the patience to help the person through it? Can he remember what it felt like and can he be a source of support? How can he ease that fearful feeling? How can he help another get to the hope to feel better? The Council says this is what he wanted to learn from this experience and was what he created while still in spirit.

Can he learn from this and help others? That is what he specifically created this situation for. And when he can learn from the feelings he had and how he handled his situation, he can know how to be of assistance to others and he will not have to experience this again.

Listen to The Council’s entire 5-minute portion of this session on Barry’s question for all their guidance.

The More You Focus on Somethin the Bigger it Becomes

This post is inspired by an anonymous support worker who asks The Council why schizophrenia appears to be growing in Western societies. The Council responds that by focusing on schizophrenia it will seem like there is more of it in your life. It appears to be growing because it is the focus.

When a soul can no longer handle their life, they can create another world for themselves where it seems like they are two different people and they aren’t so focused on this reality. Interestingly The Council adds that most of the time a soul chooses schizophrenia, it’s for the people they interact with. There are many lessons these people are helping other souls learn by choosing schizophrenia, as well as experiencing it for themselves. This is an interesting concept that can be difficult to understand – the idea these people experience their a reality for the purpose of helping the people around them.

When I (Bob) asked The Council if schizophrenia is growing in our Western society, they respond that it isn’t growing for everyone. And as we understand that we create our own reality, there are many people who never hear of schizophrenia; it’s not an idea in their head. And yet for the people who want to learn something from schizophrenia, the more they focus on this, the more it will appear to grow.

The Council reminds us it’s important that what you focus on, you will continue to bring into your life. And when the focus on schizophrenia isn’t as important, it will begin to disappear. But being a caregiver, schizophrenia may be all around this person at this time in their life. The Council advises them to look at this and ask themselves why they created this.

Can they understand there’s a soul in these schizophrenic bodies and they are being this way for them to grow from this? Ask what they are learning from this. Can they be around these people and offer them love? The Council encourages us to believe these people will feel the love even if it doesn’t seem possible. Can you feel these people with schizophrenia are there for you in spirit to grow from this experience?

If schizophrenia is in your reality, the question is how can you bring love into this? Listen to the 7-minute session below to get The Council’s full response to this interesting question.

Why Was My Baby Stillborn?

This post is inspired by Janette, who had an almost full term stillborn baby girl in February 2014 and she’s been researching the spiritual reasons this might have happened. She and her husband had just gotten married and they were very excited about having their first child.

Janette asks if her and her daughter’s higher selves knew ahead of time what was going to happen the day her daughter’s heart stopped and could she have done anything to prevent it. The idea this was an accident is difficult for Janette to bare and she wants to know if her daughter chose to be stillborn.

The Council says the higher selves of Janette, her daughter, and her husband knew the baby wasn’t coming into this reality no matter what they tried to do. The child only wanted to experience what took place in the womb and wasn’t ready to experience a full lifetime. The Council says Janette and her husband spiritually agreed to allow their daughter to have this experience and at the same time Janette desired an opportunity to work through an experience of disappointment. It was 3 souls loving each other and helping each other experience a situation they all desired.

Janette says she was nervous as a first time mother and hoped her daughter didn’t experience negativity from that, but The Council says it’s fine if the child experiences what Janette was feeling because it chose to experience those emotions. Knowing what this soul wanted to do, Janette and her husband agreed to give this soul a temporary home to experience what it wanted to learn, and then pick the time and the way it wanted to leave.

The Council suggests Janette find the love she gave her daughter and understand that other spirits might not have been able to do this. She allowed this spirit to experience whatever it wanted while it was in her body, and this soul helped her experience whatever she needed to experience going through this.

Having this spirit leave put her on a new path of having to ask why this happened. If Janette can find a way to appreciate what they did for each other and feel the great love they have for each other without any guilt, she’ll realize they fulfilled each other’s wishes perfectly. Listen to the entire 18-minute session to receive it’s full benefit.

Attempts to Heal with My Hands and Intent Don’t Work

This post is inspired by a question from Barry who asks why the healing modalities he’s studied don’t seem to work on him. He says attempts to heal with his hands, his intent, and help from guides isn’t returning his body to normal health and he asks The Counsel’s advice.

The Counsel sees the problem as one of Barry’s belief and they suggest that no matter how he feels, see himself as healed no matter what. See himself whole, as he is in spirit when he came into this body.

When Barry takes the healing modalities he’s learned and uses them on others and sees them as love and sees them as whole no matter what they are going through, he’ll also have more healing coming to himself. And as he gets in the habit of seeing the person who is ill or has emotional problems as whole and then use this on yourself, Barry will begin to see a difference taking place in his owns body. It’s the vibration of love and wanting to help heal others that heals himself as it comes through you.

Listen to our 3-minute session on Barry’s question to get the full picture.

Choosing Love vs. Battle

Gail’s question

In this post Gail talks about identifying with the spiritual warrior and asks The Council what this means to them. The Council responds by saying they don’t see Gail as a warrior. They ask her to look at her life and see that what she wants is a change in the way she’s manifesting. The warrior is one way to give Gail the strength she needs to make these changes, but The Council adds there are other ways.

Peaceful warrior

The Council adds that Gail can go in the vibration of the peaceful warrior, in the vibration of joy. And yet if she feels things are difficult and she needs to fight her way through to change what is not wanted, then the spiritual warrior is available to her. Both ways will take her to her goal.

As The Council has said many times, the bottom line is what she believes. If modeling herself after a warrior gives Gail comfort and that is her belief, then use this. But if if she can become the peaceful warrior, going within and finding the joy she truly is, there is nothing she cannot accomplish.

The choice is Gail’s, but The Council asks why go into battle when when she can go into love.

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?”

Your Spirit’s Purpose – Helping Others or Finding Joy?

Lola’s question

Lola wants to know if The Council thinks service to others is the underlying purpose of spirit, and her question appears to be inspired by the following quote from The Council that was posted as a Thought for the Day.

“You are pure spirit expressing itself in the physical. You have come to enjoy the dance of life – sometimes leading, sometimes following – but always with the intent to find joy in every step.”


Listening to the audio recording

You can listen to a 10 minute audio recording of the The Council’s answer to Lola’s question using the audio player bar below. Copyright ℗ 2014 Bob & Cynthia Dukes

Here are some excerpts of The Council’s answer to Lola’s question.

You are here to bring love into physical reality

“Well #1, you have come here to bring (as we have said before) love from the spirit into your physical world. Now many believe life should be of service to others. Helping one another always brings love into the situation, which is what we [all spirits] are going for — this is our goal.”

Loving is service to others

“There are some [who] believe [that] in their service to others, they will help the poor, they will volunteer for some job in a hospital, [or] teaching, and that is wonderful because this is needed.

“But coming into this reality, just radiating the energy of love is just as important as going out and volunteering at some particular job. … So it is always your choice. What do you feel brings you joy? With joy comes love, always.”

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)

Near Death Experiences as Evidence of Spiritual Reality

A reader named Jose wants to know why some people who have a near death experience (NDE) are able to come back to their physical body, and others just have a physical death experience and don’t come back.

From his reading about near death experiences, Jose says it appears that as you cross over from physical reality to spiritual reality, you realize your spiritual magnificence and ability to cure your physical body of any disease or catastrophic accident, and live a wonderful life. With this in mind Jose wants to know why anyone wouldn’t return to their physical body after realizing such power, particularly if they could also prevent loved ones from experiencing the emotional pain and suffering that often occurs when someone departs physical reality.

When You are No Longer in Your Physical Body, You are Still You

“We would like to say here that there are many that have near death experiences and do not have any memory of it, because those who have the near death experience and come back to share it with others, this was part of their plan incarnating into this lifetime.

“At this particular time on a planetary level, many of the souls that are living in the physical body are learning about being spirits in this physical body. But they want some proof that there is more, [that] there is a beyond, that they have come in, that they can (so to speak) die and come back.

“And so the ones that have the near death experiences and return to share that… that was part of their purpose. Much of the information they receive when they are in that near death state… all of it is not remembered and brought back with them. So what is brought back and shared is to help others know that there is a great beyond; there is a better place; there is a spiritual eternity that goes on.”

“The people that do have these near death experiences and come back to share that, it was their agreement that this would happen and they would be carriers of the messages, with proof of what they experienced: that there is more than just living in this physical body.”

“And so it was also planned that all ages would have this experience, and would have proof of what was going on when they were (so-called) dead: that they knew…what was being said, what was going on, who was there. So you have young children experiencing this, old people experiencing [this], middle-aged people [experiencing this].”

“And so when so many different ages and types of people all over your planet are having this experience, it is to bring that information with (what you would say) solid proof that you are a spirit in a physical body. And when you are no longer in that physical body, you are still you. You still exist. Is that understood?”

—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 Council repeatedly emphasized that not everyone who has a near death experience remembers the magnificence of their spiritual reality when they return to physical reality. Increasing numbers of people are able to remember because this is their intention as a spiritual being, and because they agreed to have this experience to help other souls remember you are part of a spiritual reality beyond your physical experience.

The proof The Council mentions is the ability of people who’ve had near death experiences to accurately report physical reality occurrences that took place while their physical body is unconscious, often at a distance from their physical body that leaves no other explanation for this awareness other than a non-physical/spiritual explanation.

If you believe that who you are will cease to exist when life passes from your body, The Council reminds you that you are the life that passes from your physical body. Who you truly are is the eternal life energy that temporarily occupies your human body.

What About Free Will?

Jose’s question also mentions the aspect of near death experience reports where people say they were told it wasn’t their time to leave their physical body and they were supposed to return to physical reality in order to fulfill some purpose. Jose asks where free will comes in if souls are prevented from making the transition from physical to spiritual reality.

“When you are told to go back, you are also reminded why. And so if many do not remember, they usually will come back saying that they had another purpose, or it wasn’t fulfilled, [or] it wasn’t their time. But the choice is always in the spirit whether to return or not.

“But as we said, so much is experienced that is not remembered [that] you may come back and say, ‘I was told to come back.’ But in reality you choose to come back because of what you’ve experienced, and what you’ve heard, and what you know when you were in the spiritual dimension with us.”

The Council has emphasized in several sessions that your free will as a spiritual being is never compromised. But from your human point of view this can seem questionable if you feel your human desires aren’t being satisfied because something is preventing it.

In Closing

The Council is showing quite a bit of interest in near death experiences lately and we’re beginning to understand why. Many of these reports are of experiences that are difficult to explain by the physical reality conventions that modern societies have come to believe in and depend on. It’s exciting to imagine these reports of near death experiences are helping persuade people that awareness that spiritual reality is at least as important as awareness of physical reality.

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.

How is It Possible There is No Separation Between Spirit and Human?

Jose’s Comments and Questions

Several months ago after reading one of our blog posts about how every human being – as a spiritual being in a human body – creates every aspect of their human experience (pleasant and unpleasant, wanted and unwanted), a thoughtful reader named Jose asked The Council whether humans have the free will and power to create a better-feeling human reality when we feel spirit is creating a reality we’d rather not experience. Jose also asked some additional questions about the nature of spiritual reality and it’s relationship to our human experience.

In response to his questions we did a session with The Council and published 5 separate posts describing The Council’s information and guidance for Jose and other readers interested in this information (links to these sessions at the end of this post). Recently Jose posted a comment expressing appreciation for the information in those 5 posts and how they opened his mind to some new questions. This post is the first in a series that describes two new sessions with The Council on Jose’s recent questions. This post was originally published on July 5, 2013 and has been revised several times as our understanding of these sessions evolved.

Feeling Separate From Spirit

Jose says The Council’s teaching that spirit sometimes creates challenging or difficult human experiences leaves him feeling like a slave or a pet; and spirit seems like an uncaring master who creates negative human experiences (like pain, loneliness, fear, lack, desperation, etc) to satisfy a selfish desire for spiritual expansion. Jose compares spirit to a matador who enters the bullfighting ring for the adrenalin rush, but has no compassion for the bull (which he equates with his body/mind/ego) that is physically hurt, humiliated, and is ultimately killed in the process. Jose concludes, “the mind/body has no choice but to follow blindly and painfully without knowing what the lesson or purpose was, is, or will be” in physical reality.

Jose also asks 3 questions related to these comments: one about why spirit would chose to be born as a child without limbs, one about why a buffer of time is needed between our human desire and our manifestation of what is wanted, and a question about whether it’s possible for spirit and its mind/body/ego to both simultaneously have free will to do what is wanted. Jose politely ends his comment with an apology if his questions sound too harsh, “but would love to know The Council’s opinion on the matter.”

Overview

The two sessions on Jose’s questions generated a lot of thought-provoking information and guidance from The Council – too much to comfortably include in one post. In this first post of the series, we focus on The Council’s advice regarding Jose’s feelings that spirit doesn’t care about the difficulties humans experience, and we address aspects of his question about a child born without arms and without legs.

We plan to follow this post with additional posts on Jose’s questions, and in each post we’ll focus on how you and Jose can feel more connected to spirit’s unconditional love when you feel like spirit, or something else out there, is giving you a hard time.

Praise for Jose’s Questions

Although Jose’s question may seem harsh, The Council offered the following praise for Jose:

“And we applaud him for his thinking, and how he is trying to explore different ideas. And so we hope, as he comes to the reading of this material, that he will begin to let [in] the feelings that will come with the words.”

Mind/Body/Ego is One with Spirit

If you’re looking for some uplifting spiritual reading and you’re not particularly sympathetic to Jose’s point of view, you may be wondering if you made a wrong turn with this post. But The Council says that from the point of view of who you are as an eternal spiritual being, there are no wrong turns in your human experience, only opportunities to use your free will and power of choice to find better-feeling ways of focusing your attention, and allowing more of the feeling of love you are in spirit into your human experience. And that’s a big part of what this post is about.

Abortion, Loss, Reincarnation, Life, Love, Expansion – Beth’s Story: A Spiritual Perspective

This post describes a session with The Council in response to the comment and questions below from Beth on the subject of abortion. The session is full of thought-provoking ideas on lots of different subjects of interest to many people in addition to Beth. Particularly interesting to us is light that The Council sheds on how our spirit’s intentions often manifest in surprising and unexpected ways in our human experience.

Ordinarily we like to offer a sort of running commentary in these posts if we feel it can add some clarity to something The Council says during a session, but it seemed to make this post too long and wordy. It also seemed to place more emphasis on understanding what The Council is saying rather than on appreciating the feeling of the energy offered by The Council and spirit in response to Beth’s questions. More and more we are learning from The Council that what’s important about spiritual understanding is that it’s a focus of attention that allows you to feel in your physical experience more of the love you are as a spiritual being.

As you read through the post, see if you can feel the energy of this session resonating with your spirit. If a clear understanding doesn’t come right away, be patient with yourself and let your connection to who you are as a spiritual being shed light on the material presented here. Give yourself some time. You are always welcome to use the Comment section following the post to ask a question about this material and we’ll do our best to reply.

Beth’s Comment and Questions

“I have a question about abortions as it relates to the Soul and the Soul’s agreement…the Soul of the child, specifically.

“You see I have unfortunately had to make the decision (twice) in my life to terminate what I perceived as ‘untimely’ pregnancies.

“I have a lot of guilt around these decisions, not because of any religious reasons, but more because I am not sure what I did was the right decision for my life’s path.

“Also, I often feel sad wondering how those two Souls (or maybe it was the same Soul) feel/felt that I chose to terminate their little lives.

“I fully believe that those Souls made some type of agreement with me, but I’m wondering if you could shed light on what those agreements may have been.

“Did those little Souls know that they would play this role?

“Is it the same Soul trying to come back in?

“Would I be able to find out more about them, and who they might have become had I chosen differently?

“If we come back in similar Soul groups, could this Soul have been one that I also lost in a previous life (I believe I was pregnant when drowned)?

“I realize that these are many questions, not one, but I am grateful for your input.”

–Beth

You Can Not Stop Life

Reading Beth’s comment and questions to The Council at the beginning of the session, they were quick to comment at the end of her first sentence.

“We really want to laugh here… the word abortion… what does it mean?

“Abort… Stop… Stop life?

“You can not stop life.

“It is all in choosing, and agreements, and experiences.

“And so we just wanted to add that in there.

“Beth did not stop a life… did not cut a life short… everything went as planned.”

–The Council

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?”

Jan & Will’s Telepathic Communication

This post is inspired by a question from Jan about an important friendship with a former student named Will who became like a son to her when his mother passed away. Jan describes feeling a spiritual connection with Will and believes that as spirits before they were born into this lifetime they planned to be in each other’s human lives.

But as Will developed from a child with autism into a young adult he proceeded to withdraw from friends, family, and finally Jan, to the point where she hasn’t heard from him in over a year and hasn’t seen him in three years. After reading one of our blog posts describing The Council’s advice to a reader experiencing a similar separation from her biological twin brother of 70+ years, Jan asked The Council for their view of her friendship with Will.
