Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

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.

Looking for a Meaningful Relationship

This post is about questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who says she’d really like a long-term, profoundly deep relationship. She also asks about a former male best friend who currently refuses to communicate with her, and she wants to know if they’re working through any past life experiences.

Sarah says she’s been trying to deny her desire for a relationship because she feels the best way to develop a healthy love is to go into a situation with someone without the expectation of falling in love.

The Council suggests that Sarah first think of the love she’s felt from other people and appreciate that. Then they suggest she write in great detail about the relationship she desires. The more detailed she can be will make it more likely she’ll attract this relationship to her. Focus on being ready for a relationship and that it’s okay to want it. Think about what she’s willing to bring to this relationship and what is her partner bringing? The Council says if Sarah is denying the relationship she desires, she’ll have difficulty manifesting it.

Sarah wonders if her desire to be an independent person is going against her desire to have a partner.  The Council feels Sarah has achieved independence and they don’t see her loosing herself in a relationship.

Sarah also asks about a male best friend who’s been in her life on and off for a long time. He’s been in love with her and multiple times she’s tried to be with him, but ended up running away. He currently refuses to have anything to do with her and this makes her very sad. This sadness and the longing seems out of proportion for the relationship they’ve had, even though she says she hasn’t been in love with him. Sarah’s curious if there’s something in their past lives that they’re working through.

The Council says we are all here to show love and compassion, and you learn about compassion by allowing yourself to feel what another person is feeling. Can Sarah understand how this man can feel abandoned, not good enough, taken advantage of, and foolish? Think about how this might feel for him. As Sarah understands these feelings, she can try to build a friendship with this man by speaking about her new understanding. The Council doesn’t feel it’s necessary to go into any past lives they’ve shared together.

Sarah asks if she should release this man permanently so he can have a life without the pain of her being in it (but not as his partner). The Council says when Sarah can speak with kindness about her new understanding of this man and how that makes her feel, she can try to speak with him about it. The heavy energy of not feeling wanted can lift and she can start a new kind of relationship with him. She doesn’t have to release this person from her life. They can be in each other’s lives, but differently than before.

Sarah asks what The Council sees for this relationship in the future. And The Council says that’s up to the two of them and what they wish to create. She should do the inner work of imagining how he feels when he realizes she doesn’t love him the way he loves her. As she understands this and continues to send love to herself and to him, things can begin to change.

Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Sarah and the rest of us regarding relationships, and let us know what you’re feeling.

Will I Find Love?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named, Kimberly, who is 34 years old and says she’s never been in love. She says she’d like a partner to share her life with, but she suffers from heart failure and worries God has forgotten her.

The Council says if and when Kimberly finds love is totally up to her and it’s her thoughts that will determine what this person will be like.

The Council says when Kimberly feels her life is running out (and they add that they don’t see this happening any time soon), there’s an urgency to create the love she desires, but it’s desired from a place of fear and for this reason it can’t be created.

The Council says Kimberly needs to begin to imagine her life with a loving partner. As she stays in this vibration of love she’ll be able to attract a loving partner into her life.

The Council asks how Kimberly can expect to attract the partner of her dreams when her focus is on her life ending abruptly, not ever being loved, and worrying she may never find love. This isn’t the vibration that will bring her what she desires. She must get past the feeling of never being loved. Find somewhere in her life where she’s experienced love and hold onto that vibration.

The Council says it was Kimberly’s purpose coming into this lifetime to create love in every situation. By experiencing being unloved she then has a desire for the knowledge how to turn this situation around so she can be loved. In asking the question, will I find love? she is given the information on how to turn this situation around. Expect it, have hope for it, and feel happiness as she thinks of it. That’s how she will attract the partner of her dreams.

Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Kimberly and the rest of us on how to start creating love in our life.

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.

Can The Council See Any Blocks To My Getting Married?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who calls herself Dealer99 who says her life has been blessed with a few amazing love relationships, but she’s been patiently waiting a long time for a marriage relationship. And she asks The Council if they see any blocks to her getting married.

The Council asks Dealer99 if a marriage is what she really wants because they see another lifetime in the 1600s where she was forced into an arranged marriage and she was very unhappy. And they say in this lifetime she wanted to be free and to experience love everywhere she went.

Now The Council sees there is a desire for a long-term relationship in Dealer99’s life and they say she is able to change her life by feeling grateful for each of the relationships she’s had and imagining all the reasons she’d like to be married. They say there is nothing in her way and there are no blocks to stop her from getting married.

The Council encourages Dealer99 to focus on the benefits of being with one person rather than being excited by new relationships. They say the only thing that would stop her from experiencing a marriage is a belief that there’s a block that’s in the way, and that she doesn’t have the spiritual ability to create what she now desires.

The Council says even though Dealer99 planned to experience this lifetime without getting married, it is always within her power to change this. And they see a marriage has a great possibility of happening if she uses her imagination to change her beliefs and sees what she wishes to create.

The Council recommends several things Dealer99 can do in her physical reality to help her create this marriage. They say she can put empty hangers in a closet with the intention of them belonging to her partner. She can make an empty drawer available for her partner when he comes into her life. She can set her table for two and have an extra bathrobe available for her future partner. The Council encourages Dealer99 to have fun with her imagination to create this new relationship. And they say as the creation comes from within her, it will appear in her life.

Listen to the entire 7-minute session with The Council below to receive their full guidance for Dealer99 and the rest of us on how to create what we desire.

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.

How Do You Create What You Desire?

This post is inspired by a reader named Emmy who asks how she can create a family after having a recent missed miscarriage – a miscarried pregnancy that goes undetected by the mother, usually until diagnosed by a physician.

First The Council says this miscarriage was not pre-planned before Emmy came into this life. Instead she would decide after she got here whether she wanted to experience this.

Now that Emmy has a desire to create a family, The Council suggests she investigate the reasons why she wants one, then they explain the details of creating it. They suggest she see herself receiving the news she’s pregnant and feeling her emotions about it. Then they ask her to see and feel various milestones in the child’s life, from birth, to school, dating, marriage, having it’s own children, and the milestones in between. The Council says seeing and feeling these details and how she wants them to be is the way she’ll create them.

The Council says if she now feels ready, she can speak with the soul of her child-to-be and give it permission to come into her life, and it will come.

The Council suggests visualizing each event in the child’s life, going into great detail, and feeling like it’s already happening. This is the inner work. This is how you create in the spiritual world and then manifest it in the physical.

The Council says to have fun with this. Creating is always fun. Take the pressure off and see exactly what you want.

Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to get all the details of The Council’s guidance for Emmy.

Abortion and Creation

This post is about The Council’s answer to an anonymous reader’s question about how many children she’ll have in this lifetime. She says she was told by someone she’d have one boy and one girl, but she recently had an abortion and is sad at the thought she aborted one of these children that she badly wants.

The Council begins by introducing the idea of pre-birth planning. This is the idea that as a spiritual being you plan various aspects of your physical life before you are born. They say the most important thing to understand is that as spirit you are creating your physical life. And after you come into this physical reality there continues to be a spiritual part of you that is still creating your life. And yet so many of us give away our creative power to others.

The Council asks A., who told her she’d have a boy and a girl and why does she assume they were correct when she, as a spiritual being, is the creator of her reality. Suppose she got pregnant again under circumstances that tell her she’s not ready for that child. Does that mean her chances for these two children she wants is over?

The Council says you are a powerful creative spirit in your physical body and you create what you want from your beliefs. And they say this abortion has come into her life at this time to let her learn about creation. And so if she has more abortions, is her desire for children strong enough that it doesn’t matter what anyone says if she wants to create these children in this lifetime?

The Council says everything you want is already created in vibration. And how you bring this vibration into your physical reality is by putting yourself in the highest vibration you can (love, happiness, joy). And without knowing how it will happen, imagine these children she wants in her life. Feel as if she already has it (because she already has it in spirit) and that will bring it into her physical reality.

The Council sees children in A.’s life. The question is will she create this? The Council says no one can do this for her, but she has the tools to make this happen. A.’s grief over loosing a child has brought her to the point where she can change her perception of her life and what she can create moving forward. The Council encourages A. to match the vibration of her desire for these children, to know she is the creator of her reality, and then this must come into her physical reality.

The Council asks A. to see the pattern in her life where someone came along and changed her mind about creating whatever it was that she desired. The issue of her abortion is part of a larger issue of creation and what she is capable of creating when she sticks with what she desires rather than give up her creative ability by believing what other people say.

Listen to the entire 20-minute session below to hear all of The Council’s guidance, and let us know what you think.

What is the Name of My Spirit Guides?

This post is inspired by a question from Wendy who asks what are the names of her spirit guides and how many does she have?

Many people desire the name of their spirit guides, but The Counsel says spirit guides and angels don’t assign themselves names. They only come up with them when it’s something needed by you, but that isn’t what this is all about. They say what’s important is the feeling of connection you have with angels and guides and the information that comes through to you.

Can you accept that spirit is with you to help you? Go with the feeling. Stay in the vibration of connection and the information will become more important as time goes by. But if it’s really needed, ask for the name of your guide or guides. You can even specify how it will come to you.

The Counsel reminds Wendy and the rest of us that in the end we are all one and asks if it’s really necessary to name your guides. When Wendy says she believes she’s gone through the appropriate steps to communicate with her guides she gets nothing, but The Council says they feel she has gotten much information.

The Counsel suggests Wendy meditate on her spirit guides names if this is important to her and they give her a brief meditation for this.

Listen to the 7-minute session to hear The Counsel’s full answer to Wendy.

Feeling Your Way to Manifesting What You Desire

The following is a message The Council delivered to a small group on July 19, 2011 prior to taking questions from participants. Before the session with The Council the group had been discussing the subject of manifesting desires. Headings have been added for emphasis.

“And so we notice tonight the topic was all of the desires that each of us have. And we would just like to tell you that before you came into this physical reality, you knew you had the ability to create anything you desired. If you have the desire, it’s there for you.

Feel Your Way There

“What we always wish to let you know is that you are so much more than a physical body. You are spirit on this journey in a physical world. You are very powerful, and the way to create, to manifest your desires, is to feel your way there.

“It is wonderful to see it, to imagine it, but what brings it in is that feeling. Every part of your body, every cell in your body understands, and as you have those desires and feel your way there, the universe will line up all the opportunities to help you create whatever it is that you want – and we do say – whatever it is that you want.
