What will you ask Spirit?

How Do I Know I’m Awakening?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Marianne, who asks how she can know she’s becoming awakened and allowing herself to be filled with light?

The Council says you’re awakening when:

  • You realize you don’t have all the answers in your current reality (lifetime)
  • You sit quietly and feel the peacefulness
  • There’s drama around you and you don’t react to it, but you can quietly help the people around you
  • You begin to remember who you truly are as a spirit in a physical body, and even if you don’t understand this, you’re able to realize there’s much more to you than what you see as this body
  • You know you’re the creator of everything that happens in your life and you begin to see desired things happen
  • There’s peace and joy at the center of everything you do
  • You allow everyone to be who they are

Marianne says she wants to bring light into herself and awaken a part of her that feels like it’s been asleep. The Council says there are always parts of us that are sleeping. Sit quietly and reach for the feeling of not being as concerned about things that are happening to you and around you because you know there’s safety and love, and that you are spirit. This is the feeling you have as you become awakened.

Marianne says she feels like she’s supposed to be part of something greater than she is, but she doesn’t know what to do to understand this and figure it out. The Council says you are a part of something greater than yourself. And yet, because we’re all connected and we all are one, there is nothing greater than what you are. All you need to do is remember this.

Marianne says she feels connected to the Pleiades star system and the message from the beings there, and want so access her DNA to fill herself with light and all the information sleeping inside her. She’s researched the Pleiadian’s messages and practiced what she’s been told, but she feels there’s a lot she still doesn’t understand about this and what to look for.

The Council says the souls from the Pleiades are just like Marianne and the rest of us. You are connected to them because we are all one. In your current incarnation you’re attracted to the Pleiadians’ messages. You don’t have to do anything with your DNA. Know that you’re a spirit and at one time you’ve been on Pleiades and you understand their ways.

Just sit quietly and allow the white light to come down and surround you like a cocoon. Sit in the quiet and ask to see the Pleiadians and remember your lives with them. You know what the Pleiadians are teaching because you’ve experienced this before and you’d like to understand it again.

Marianne closes her questions by asking how I can know I’m on the correct path for the mission I’ve chosen in my current lifetime? The Council says Marianne can know she’s on the right path because:

  • She’s so detailed in her questions
  • She knows she’s attracted to the Pleiadians and this isn’t something new to her
  • She can ask questions about how to connect with Pleiadians again
  • She wants to know how to change her life and make it better
  • She wants to know how she can reach for more than she knows how to reach now
  • She’s not stagnant and is always looking for more, to learn, to connect, and to  feel who she truly is as a spirit in a physical body

The Council suggests Marianne drink lots of pure, unsugared, unflavored, not tea, water. Tap water is okay. And if you find you’re attracted to crystals, keep clear quartz around you. The water and the clear quartz will help raise your vibration and help you attract into your life what you need to experience.

I’m Depressed and Nothing Feels Real

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Harmony, who says she has a problem with the idea that each person creates their own reality, because this idea feels like nothing is real and everything is replaceable. Her questions are in response to our recent post, Learning About Spirituality, But Has Fears and Doubts, which attempts to answer Harmony’s earlier questions about being filled with fear, doubt, and questions about her spirituality, which replaced her feelings of joy and peace she previously felt from learning about spirit. (Note: Harmony apparently posted her original question using the name, Lola.)

The Council says everything is replaceable, and everything in this reality is real. When this reality comes to an end for Harmony, she’ll go back to being who she truly is as a spiritual being and the reality she was living is no longer real for her. The feeling Harmony has that things aren’t real is because she intuitively knows they’re only temporarily real.

The Council says Harmony has created everyone in her life. She’s created these people with the understanding from these souls who wish to be in her life. You have the power to bring in souls and lessons you wish to experience. No one is creating in your life but you.

The Council says while Harmony knows this reality doesn’t feel real, it would be wise to change her belief to: eventually she’ll become the spirit she truly is, and she’s created this reality to learn from it. This reality is something she wants to experience, but she’s in charge of who comes in and out of her life.

Meditate on the idea that you’re close to connecting and understanding your higher self. Your reality is temporary and you’re in it because you wish to be. You wish to go through these difficult thoughts so you can learn from them.

You are this intelligent soul that creates some realities to be light and easy, some realities where it’s difficult physically or mentally, and there are realities where you’re brought on a spiritual path you don’t understand and you need to ask questions and read about it and meditate. You need to listen to your ideas, whether they’re positive or negative, and see where these ideas bring you. Each step will guide you to questions and answers until you can connect with something you’re comfortable with.

Harmony asks if love is only a construct of belief and The Council says love is the only thing that really exists. Love is truth, love is reality, and love is who you are and we all are. Love allows you to have doubts. It allows you to create any kind of life you wish and to learn from it or not learn from it. Love has created everything that is. And if you’re not experiencing love, it’s not because there’s an absence of it. It’s because you’re not allowing love in.

Harmony asks if the people around her are created by her and change according to her beliefs? And The Council says that’s exactly how it is. Then Harmony adds that this idea scares her and makes her feel alone. She wants other  people to be real. The Council says the people around Harmony are as real as she allows them to be. There are souls that are in Harmony’s life to play whatever part she wishes them to play. And it’s because of the love we all have for each other that we come in to play these parts.

The Council advises Harmony to sit still and concentrate on her heart for as little as 10 minutes a day, look for a little light that shines there, and allow this light to grow more and more. Clarity will come.

Harmony closes by apologizing if others find these questions uncomfortable, and The Council says Harmony has created the uncomfortableness to learn from it.

Asking for Guidance to Remove Marks on Their Face

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, LookingForAdvice, who’d like to know about the marks on their face that have been increasing lately. LookingForAdvice has been to a doctor who says there’s no medicine to reduce these marks, and they ask The Council if there’s any product that might help them with this and make sure they don’t come back as often. LookingForAdvice says they’re a big believer that all body-related issues are trying to tell us something, but in this particular case they don’t understand the issue.

The Council says this particular problem is an emotional one for LookingForAdvice and it will take a lot of inner work on their part to reduce these facial marks. Your body is trying to get you to look at yourself. You’ve created these marks because on some level you’ve learned not to like yourself.

Meditate and begin to appreciate yourself and what you’ve accomplished. When you can do this, your face will become free of these marks.  Identify with who you truly are as a spiritual being and discover what is going on in your life. Are there people around you that hold you back? Are there people that irritate or upset you and you’re not dealing with this? This can create symptoms that show as marks on your face. You may think you love yourself, but go deeper.

In the meantime, learn about the fifth, sixth, and seventh chakras. These chakras control the energy to your face. If you learn how to work the energy in these chakras you’ll see improvement.

And you can help yourself with the Edgar Cayce pack, which is flannel or pure cotton and castor oil. Soak the flannel or cotton in the castor oil and place it on the marks on your face. Castor oil is known to heal the cells of the body on a deep spiritual level and remind the cells they are part of God, spirit, and love. While you work on your emotions and begin to love yourself more, you can also work with castor oil and with the fifth through seventh chakras.

Always begin by looking in the present for ways to love yourself more, but also look back at your life. Was there a sibling who was appreciated more than you? Do you feel like you haven’t done enough with your life? Do you feel you aren’t pretty or handsome enough or you aren’t intelligent enough? These marks are on your face and your face is how you show yourself to the world. Look at your emotions around this to learn how to heal these marks.

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

Spiritual Purpose of Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Jhendi, about depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. First they ask if there’s a spiritual purpose for these issues.

The Council says there is always a spiritual reason for experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD and it is always pre-planned in spirit. Sometimes in spirit you decide to experience these and see how you can turn them around in your human life. Sometimes you volunteer to go through these to have the people around you learn compassion and patience from this experience. And sometimes it’s to start a group or organization that works to bring understanding and change to these issues.

Jhendi says if we’re supposed to learn from these issues, does taking medication affect our learning since we get through the issue with pills rather than working through the problems on our own. This is a very interesting question.

The Council says if you get relief from medication you can take it. When you’re in a happier state you’re able to work through your problems. Many people need some sort of therapy to talk to a professional about what they’re experiencing. The Council says not to take medication and assume it’s sufficient by itself. The medication will ease you enough to deal with what comes up for you and show you how to handle it.

The Council recommends always taking the time, even if it’s a couple minutes a day, to meditate. And when they say, meditate, they mean that all you have to do is ask for the vibration of love to come into your life and find two things every day to be grateful for.

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

Help With Depression

This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks The Council for guidance on overcoming depression. They have been using meditation, guided journals, therapy, and medication for years, but just can’t shake this condition. Typically they’re okay when they’re busy, but at other times like now, the situation is unbearably difficult.

The Council suggests when you start feeling depressed you should pay attention to your thoughts. Your thoughts will either lead you into depression or help you come out of it. In your case it’s good to keep as busy as possible. If you’re not working to keep busy, try taking classes, reading, and meditation.

When you meditate, ask to feel your heart energy. This will lift your spirits.

When you don’t feel as good as you’d like, acknowledge this feeling. Then take control by changing your thoughts to better feeling ones. Find something you like about yourself or something you’ve accomplished. Go into old memories that feel good. As you change these heavier thoughts you can begin to change the thoughts that bring on the depression. This will take work on your part, but you’re able to do it.

If you feel some relief from medication, this belief that medication is helping will assist you. You can use medication for a while to lift your energy and still begin to change your thoughts to better feeling ones. This medication would be until you feel better. Once you acknowledge these better feelings you’ll remember them. When you get depressed and change your thoughts and reach for these better feelings, this is how you’ll work your way out of depression.

Anonymous says they understand their negative emotions are creating the depression, but they have difficulty staying positive. The Council says in the beginning you’ll be able to change your thoughts only occasionally, and as you’re able to do this the thoughts will grow and you’ll not have to consistently feel depressed. You are retraining yourself how to focus your attention, and this focus is what you’ll create in your life.

Anonymous asks how they’re able to experience all the good things they’ve created for themselves? The Council says by naming them and being grateful for each one. As you find things to be grateful for, everything begins to change for the better.

The Council’s parting words are to look within yourself for your inner light and meditate on your heart. Picture a little light growing there. This is part of who you are. You are more than your physical body. You are also a wondrous spirit that is light and love. As you look within for this light, you will find it.

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

How Can I Have a Romantic Relationship?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named Nina, who read our post, Can I Have a Long-term Romantic Relationship?, and says she has the same question.

The Council begins by asking Nina why she holds herself back? They feel she’s not genuine with the men she wants a relationship with and there’s an almost unconscious fear of failure, which she then creates.

Nina must work on herself and not speak or think so much why she doesn’t have a relationship. Think instead about the good things she has to offer a relationship. Don’t compare herself to others. Know that one of her lessons in this lifetime is to feel confident about herself. She shouldn’t meekly think she’d be good in a relationship, but she should feel the power within her to be part of a couple.

The Council tells Nina that she closes off her energy when she’s on a date with someone for the first time. Despite wanting a relationship so badly, she withdraws her energy and her dates feel this either consciously or unconsciously. Her dates feel they can’t reach her and there’s a distance.

Nina says she feels isolated. She used to appreciate herself because she built her life from scratch and she’s proud of what she’s accomplished, but she doesn’t want to be alone and feels ashamed she’s never been in a short or long-term relationship.

The Council says that feeling of shame is one of the reasons she fails in these relationships and they recommend Nina do a heart meditation to help change the energy around her. Cover herself in a green energy, feel a little light in her chest that grows, say that she accepts and loves herself, and send this love out into the universe. The people that will connect with this vibration will come into her life.

The Council says Nina has to change her own energy before she can have a successful relationship. She is the one keeping herself alone. She created this aloneness so she would ask herself why she’s not in a relationship, find the answers, and change her circumstances for the better.

The Council says the answer Nina needs is to feel so good and so loving for herself, and as she recognizes this love, send it out to the universe. This love will become a magnet to bring the right people into her life, whether it be a friendship, a romantic relationship, or a work relationship.

The Council advises Nina not to worry when other people say they don’t understand why she isn’t in a relationship. These people aren’t here to understand Nina’s path. Nina needs to get on the path she created so she heals and grows, and by doing this she’ll create the life she desires.

In an extended closing The Council wishes blessings to all who write questions and are able to follow their guidance. They say this guidance will help many who have similar questions and they send blessings to all who find this guidance helpful.

The Council advises everyone on this path to share their knowledge and love, particularly of our planet, the animals, minerals, and plants. Send love to everything and your life has to change.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Nina and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about this session.

A Past Life Connection with the Great Pyramid

This post answers questions from a reader named is SoulSeekingKnowledge, who says they’ve been drawn to the subjects of pyramids and Egypt since childhood. For the last few months they’ve been drawn to spiritual and metaphysical books and have a tremendous thirst for knowledge. They ask The Council if there’s any past life connection with pyramids or Atlantis. They feel like there’s a purpose in this lifetime connected to lifetimes in these places, but they’re not understanding the purpose.

The Council says this goes back to being in a school for priests in a lifetime in Egypt. At the age of 5 they were brought to this school for a life in the priesthood. Your main focus in this lifetime was on energy. As you grew you learned about medicine and the stars, and advanced quickly in your education. You began speaking about connecting with the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt, and that you were able to hear them and get information from them.

You trained to work in the Temple of Bast and of Osiris. As you learned more, you wished to become a teacher of younger students and show them how to develop their abilities. At a certain stage of this teaching, before you could formally become a priest, you had to spend 24 hours alone in a sarcophagus with the lid on inside the Great Pyramid. Many students lost their minds while trying to attempt this.

The Council sees you in the sarcophagus trying to work with the energy and staying calm for the 24 hours. Your mind opened more than ever and you connected with energy that gave you more information than you were able to understand and work with. When they came the next day to let you out of the sarcophagus, your mind had become very disturbed by what you experienced. It took you many years to come back to a level of wholeness where you weren’t afraid to be in the dark, be alone, or afraid to use your ability to hear and see beyond the reality most experienced.

While you had many interesting lives in Egypt, The Council sees this particular life with the sarcophagus is the one that’s effecting your current lifetime. You’d like to develop your psychic abilities and learn to meditate in your current lifetime, but you shouldn’t go too quickly. As you accomplish these skills, you’ll achieve what you intended in that Egyptian lifetime.

SoulSeekingKnowledge says in their current lifetime they have a fear of darkness or evil and hear strange things when they’re meditating, and they ask how to overcome these fears and progress in their meditations. The Council says the lifetime in Egypt with the sarcophagus helps explain these fears.

When you meditate now, The Council asks you to go very slowly so you don’t pick up negative energy or things that frighten you. Always remind yourself you are a strong and powerful spirit and you will let into your mind only things that travel in white light. You’ll only allow things to come to you that are acceptable and comfortable to you and all else cannot enter. Meditate on peace, wholeness, and love. If you think these thoughts before you meditate, your meditations should be much improved.

In an extended closing The Council wishes blessings to all who write questions and are able to follow The Council’s guidance. They say this guidance will help many more who have similar questions and they send blessings to all who find this guidance helpful.

The Council advises everyone on this path to share their knowledge, their love, particularly of our planet, the animals, minerals, and plants. Send love to everything and your life has to change.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) on their guidance for SoulSeekingKnowledge and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

How Can I Describe Kundalini Energy to Family & Friends

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Mariner2Mother, who’s experiencing a Kundalini awakening and would like help explaining the process to family and friends who don’t understand it.

The Council says Kundalini is a raising of energy in each chakra (or energy center in the body). It sits in the first chakra (or root chakra in the groin area) and through meditation, prayer, reading, and sometimes through no conscious effort on the part of the practitioner, slowly rises through each of the seven chakras along the spine.

Inside each chakra there are seven more chakras that correspond to the seven chakras in the body. The Council describes it as an awakening. It can take years for this energy to rise to the upper most chakra. This energy can heal fears, illness, and anything that keeps you from experiencing who you truly are. It helps you think differently and see things differently.

The Council says many people experience this rise of Kundalini energy and never know it. They just begin to feel better and have better thoughts because they are opening to energies that aren’t available when you’re worried, depressed, or your energy is heavy.

Many people say it’s a horrible experience to have your Kundalini open, and The Council says if you believe this, that is what you’ll experience.

The Council advises controlling Kundalini energy with your thoughts, know that it’s there, and if you’re interested in raising this energy you can do this slowly so that your body and your mind can handle it.

It’s a raising and expanding of energy so you can have deeper experiences while still in your human body.

Mariner2Mother says her Kundalini energy opened up in her somewhat spontaneously, but The Council says this isn’t the case. It’s happening because her higher self (spirit) is choosing to have this experience.

The Council says the simplest way to explain Kundalini is to describe the seven chakras and what each one does, and how you are learning there are seven more chakras inside each chakra. From deep inside you this energy slowly works it’s way up from one chakra to the next. The chakras gradually open and send out a much higher vibration and energy that you’re able to tap into.

The Council says raising your Kundalini is a normal process that can be very beautiful, and there’s nothing to be afraid of.

Mariner2Mother can pray on each chakra, learn the colors of each chakra, and meditate on the seven different chakra colors within each chakra; these seven chakras are the size of a pin head.

In response to Mariner2Mother describing her Kundalini process as challenging for her, The Council suggests asking her spirit (or higher self) to slow down this process so it’s not so exhausting. When she describes much of her experience as “Hell on Earth”, The Council says this experience of Hell on Earth isn’t necessary.

The Council finishes with guidance to send love to every chakra.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Mariner2Mother and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Spirit Guide Meditation, and Soul Mates

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the name, LearningSoulSite, who asks The Council about meditation and about soul mates. LearningSoulSite says a few times during her meditations she feels something special, but she’s unable to reach the answer she’s looking for by herself.

The Council says not to expect answers immediately because your mind and body has to adjust to this new energy and to the belief that something is really happening. They say there’s no rush. Meditation is a learning process. The answers will come if you keep meditating. Practice enjoying what this journey feels like.

The Council recommends the following meditation. Find yourself walking through a forest and you come to a clearing with a lake in the middle and green grass all around. As you look into the lake, ask your spirit guide to show itself to you. As you keep doing this and whatever form your spirit guide takes, you can then begin to ask for guidance.

On another subject LearningSoulSite says she’s been reading about soul mates and she doesn’t feel her romantic relationships up to this point have shared the deeper connection she associates with a soul mate. She asks The Council if she’ll meet her primary soul mate.

The Council says they’re sure LearningSoulSite, at one time or another, has met their soul mates. They say the words “soul mate” has many people confused. Many people feel the big love of their life has to be this soul mate. The Council says we are all soul mates and we’re here to help each other.

The Council says the person you choose to fall in love with is someone you’ve been with before in many lifetimes and someone in your soul group. They add some interesting information about soul groups that you can hear on the recording of the session (below).

The Council says there’s much to be understood about the words “soul mates” and they can’t stress how important it is to let go of these words. When you think of soul mates, they say to think every single one of us here is your soul mate. Just because we choose to have a romantic relationship with one or more soul mates doesn’t mean the others aren’t also our soul mates.

The Council says the big, ongoing, forever romantic relationship is what most people think of as their soul mate. LearningSoulSite hasn’t created this romantic relationship yet in this particular reality. She is asking for the universe to send her the romantic soul mate she’s looking for. With her thoughts and feelings she is able to create this, and The Council makes a suggestion on the recording for how to do this.

Listen to our entire 13-minutes session with The Council to hear all their guidance for LearningSoulSite and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Opening to the Love All Around

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who asks The Council how they can give and receive love. PE says they are very closed and there’s a lot of grief in their heart.

The Council says they see the grief in PE’s heart and they recommend working on the heart chakra by sitting a few moments twice each day and picturing a little flame in the heart area. Picture this flame getting bigger and bigger and eventually tuning in to what this increasingly larger flame feels like. This will begin to open your heart.

PE says they struggle with being warm and open with people and this makes them feel lonely and friendless. The Council says PE has abandonment and trust issues and there was a lot of hurt, grief, and sadness from past experiences and past lives. In this lifetime they made a decision to turn these emotions around and feel love and trust again, but it is difficult to do this quickly when you have gone through as much as PE has.

The Council says if PE is uncomfortable giving and receiving love and trusting people, then buy a beautiful plant to take care of. Play music for this plant, water it, sing to it. Show kindness and love to this plant. After you’ve done this for a while perhaps you can have a favorite tree that you can visit every day. Sit with this tree, talk to it, feel the energy the tree gives back to you. Then you can get an animal to express love to. Slowly you’ll begin to trust and let the energy of love in.

PE has heard there are guides and angels around us, but she doesn’t feel their presence and says they don’t know how to connect to it. The Council says PE would connect by doing the exercise with the light in the heart. As you show love to anything – the plant, the tree, the animal – you open your heart and you will begin to feel this connection.

PE says there’s a deep and painful emptiness in their heart, but they really want some kind of connection with other people. PE adds that sometimes they cry for no apparent reason because of so much sadness in their heart that they are unable to explain.

The Council says just by asking this question, PE is in the part of their path where they’ve discovered what they want – the connection with other people and the healing of their heart – so they are exactly where they need to be. And if they follow the steps The Council has suggested, their life will begin to change.

The Council says the vibration you carry attracts people that are a match to that vibration. With a heavy heart, and grief, and sadness, and not trusting, it’s more difficult to bring in the more trusting and gentle souls. As PE does this daily meditation on the heart, they will begin to accept love from the people that want to show it to them, and they will attract more of the kind, loving people they need to help them along their path.

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

Life Feels Over After an Abortion

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named, Casey, who had an abortion and says she wants to die because she’s been told she took a life.

The Council says Casey didn’t take a life and they want to make clear, as they’ve said in other posts, all abortions are pre-planned in spirit. Sometimes the abortion is agreed to by all concerned before you come into this lifetime. And sometimes everyone involved waits to see what circumstances are like in the lifetime before going ahead with the abortion. Either way the abortion is pre-planned in spirit and everyone involved agrees.

Casey has done exactly what was needed for all the souls concerned, including the aborted child’s. The Council suggests Casey meditate on the fact that the spirit of the child isn’t dead and Casey hasn’t stopped this spirit from what it wanted to learn or from moving forward.

The Council says Casey planned other experiences she wishes to go through. If she were to end this particular life, she’ll come back and have to learn these lessons again. The Council reminds Casey she’s exactly where she needs to be right now. And they ask her why she’d want to cut this life short when she has the opportunity to move forward and grow spiritually and intellectually, and to have clarity about the abortion when she’s ready for this.

As Casey believes she’s done something wrong by having this abortion, she isn’t moving forward and the light and clarity of her spirit is unable to reach her human self. The Council encourages Casey to remedy this by sitting for 5-10 minutes every day and imagining a beautiful green light surrounding her to heal her heart and her mind. And they ask Casey to change her perception of what’s happened to one that’s more productive.

Casey says she fears divine retribution and The Council says there is no divine retribution. She chose this abortion in spirit and the spirit of the child chose it also.

The Council recommends Casey release the feeling her life is over, take in these new ideas, meditate, and learn to love herself. She has a husband and children who’ve chosen to be with her and there are beautiful experiences they all planned to work through together going forward.

As Casey’s children grow they’ll have many ideas that will open Casey to the spiritual world and help her move forward, and these children will open the minds of many people. The Council says Casey agreed to be a part of all this and asks if she really wants to die now. There is much to learn and so much happiness in front of her.

Now Casey needs to work on herself and her beliefs. She needs to be open to another way of thinking about the abortion and open to accepting the vibration of love and light that’s all around her. If she meditates daily she’ll experience this. The choice is hers.

The Council closes by recommending Casey tell herself she is a vibration of love, she is light, and she is spirit. All spirits will be sending Casey healing. Will she choose to accept it.

Listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Casey on this important subject of abortion, and let us know what you think.

Advice to Help Partner and Son

This interesting post is inspired by two follow up questions for The Council from a reader named, Wendy, who asks for advice she can give her partner to help her get pregnant, and advice on how to help her son.

Wendy’s Partner

Wendy says she and her partner have begun trying to have a child, but her partner is unsure if a pregnancy is possible due to a medical report he received years ago. The Council recommends getting Wendy’s partner to talk about how he sees his life with Wendy and a child. But The Council emphasizes this is Wendy’s reality and they say she’ll create a pregnancy no matter what her partner thinks. And The Council also says it will be easier to create a pregnancy when she sees her partner speaking about it.

The Council says it’s difficult to understand that each of us experiences many different realities, although most of us are only aware of a single reality. In this reality Wendy has expressed a desire to become pregnant with her partner. In another reality with the same partner, Wendy can create a reality where it’s just her and her partner and they have no children. Wendy’s partner also has many realities. In one reality he may allow a child, and in another reality he may wish to create a life without children.

The Council says when Wendy focuses on wanting a child, she’ll create having this child and she’ll create her partner going along with this. As far as the medical report is concerned, The Council says not to listen to these reports if they go against what Wendy desires, and notice the powerful creator she is.

The Council recommends Wendy have her partner meditate with her daily, and they say 5 minutes is all that’s necessary. Picture a beautiful healing white light coming into the top of your head and filtering down through every part of your bodies, through the feet and into the Earth, bringing strength to your body. If Wendy’s partner does this every day and begins to see this healing white light in his imagination, he will be able to create a child with Wendy.

Wendy’s Son

Next Wendy asks The Council for advice to help her son with his perfectionism. The Council says children often create pressure on themselves to be perfect in order to be loved and accepted. How does Wendy treat her son when he isn’t perfect? Does she still accept him the way he is and show him love? The more she can do this he’ll begin to realize not being perfect is okay, he can learn from his experience, the pressure will ease up, and Wendy will see a change.

Wendy, Son, and Partner in a Past Life

Wendy says her son has difficulty expressing love to her partner. The Council encourages Wendy to respect how her son feels about her partner at this time and not to push him to be more affectionate. And they ask if Wendy can be okay with her son not loving her partner.

Wendy asks about past lives she’s shared with her son and her partner, and The Council says in the lifetime that’s affecting their current life the three of them were together, Wendy as the mother, her partner as her husband, and her son as their son. In that lifetime Wendy became sick and died when her son was around 5 years old, and her son blamed the husband for not doing enough to save Wendy. The son was then left with the father who could no longer express love or emotion and they lived an empty life together.

In his current lifetime the son has chosen to heal the blame he felt in that previous lifetime. It will take time to relax with Wendy’s partner. In time the partner and Wendy’s son will attempt to work out their differences. That’s the agreement they made with each other in spirit. Wendy shouldn’t force the two of them to get along. Let their spirits find a way to try and heal the hurt they brought into this lifetime.

Listen to our entire 16-minute session to hear all The Council’s guidance for Wendy and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Moving Past Struggles Over an Abortion

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who struggles to forgive herself for having an abortion. She sees this as an opportunity for spiritual growth, but she gets stuck and asks The Council how she can move past the regrets she experiences. She believes healing will come if she’s able to have another child, but she’s worried her negativity from her abortion is preventing her from getting pregnant. Anonymous asks The Council if there’s anything she needs to do before she’s able to conceive again.

The Council sees that Anonymous carries guilt with her about her abortion and they remind her and all women who experience a terminated pregnancy there’s no need for this guilt. All pregnancies are pre-planned in spirit. She and the soul of this child wanted to experience this. The Council says if she were in school she’d received an A+ for following this challenge she and the child picked to experience and she’s promoted to the next level. They add that the next level is for feeling love for herself and being proud of what she’s done, and proud for the soul of this child that she allowed it to experience what it wanted.

The Council sees Anonymous’s desire for another child and they remind her of the difficulty creating what she desires when her vibration isn’t in one of joy. They suggest thinking positively and changing how she thinks about her abortion: get to a place where she can see she created the abortion and if it’s her desire, she doesn’t need to experience it again.

Moving forward The Council suggests Anonymous do whatever she can to get to a joyful place. She can do this by finding memories that make her laugh or watching movies that make her laugh and raise her vibration. Begin to think of a new child and the life she can offer it.

The Council asks Anonymous to practice a meditation that concentrates on her heart center. At first see a tiny light within her heart. And as she experiences more joy this light will grow. This is the light of her creation. As this light becomes brighter and brighter it opens the door to whatever she desires.

The Council recommends that in this light Anonymous bring what she wishes to create into her mind and into her feelings. Feel the love and then she’ll be able to move forward and have another child if that’s her desire. Her purpose now is to work on her heart chakra and make the light and the feeling within it grow.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

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.

Did I Know My Friend in Other Lifetimes?

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who met someone they became friendly with and although the relationship was short-lived, this person made an impression in Anonymous’s life. They ask The Council to confirm their suspicion that they knew each other in other lives and if this is true, what was their relationship in these lives. Anonymous is also interested in whether they will reconnect with this person in this lifetime.

On a separate note Anonymous asks whether they were ever interested in herbs and healing in other lifetimes because they are drawn to this in their current lifetime and it feels familiar.

The Council says in the current lifetime it is the remembering of shared other lives that has brought you together for a short time like ships passing in the night.

The Council says in other lives you’ve been sisters, mother and child, a married couple, and peers who worked together, and they say to enjoy this familiar feeling you’ve identified with.

The Council says there’s a possibility you will reconnect with this person in the remainder of this lifetime as long as your life choices bring you in this direction.

The Council say Anonymous has dealt with herbs, oils, and mostly crystals in other lifetimes and they suggest Anonymous familiarize themselves with this. The Council also suggests Anonymous begin to meditate if they don’t already. This will connect them to a peacefulness and help them with the direction they want this lifetime to go in.

Listen to this brief 3-minute session with The Council on these questions to hear all of their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Overcoming Challenges, and Purpose in this Lifetime

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Kate who says she has no idea what her purpose on Earth is, which causes her much anxiety. She can’t seem to relax and enjoy being here.

The Council says Kate needs to meditate and needs to perform some grounding exercises to bring her more into this reality. Any meditation will do. Walking outside on grass or dirt in her bare feet will help her ground and pull in the energy of the Earth. Dancing will also help ground her.

Kate says she’s concerned about her future because she believes she’s unable to escape her bad habits and faults when it comes to work situations. The Council says there are never any bad choices, just choices that will bring you quickly to where you want to go, or choices that will take you a longer roundabout route.

The Council asks Kate what she’s learning? If she’s feeling stuck, what would make her feel unstuck? The Council recommends watching other people live their lives, seeing how this feels to her, and deciding what she feels she would like for herself.

When Kate says she sees the possibilities in life, but doesn’t have the courage or self-discipline to pursue them, The Council points out this is a choice that Kate is making. And as long as she believes she doesn’t have the discipline to pursue these possibilities, that is what she’ll keep creating in her life. Her thoughts and beliefs are creating what she brings into her life.

The Council says of course Kate has the courage and ability to change her life and discover what she wants because she is more spirit than she knows, with limitless power, understanding, and love to create what she wants. With meditation her beliefs will begin to change, the courage to try many things will come, and the feeling of being stuck will gradually decrease.

In past lives Kate’s desires were taken away and it’s difficult in this life to believe there aren’t authority figures that will put her down. But that was then and this is now, and she’s here to see how much she can create and take her life in the direction she wants. Meditation will give her clarity. She will feel the answers more than think them. And she will grow and know which direction she wishes to take her life.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council to hear all their answers for Kate and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Desire for a Fuller Life in Ancient Egypt and Today

This post is inspired by a question from Christine, who’s interested in knowing if the information she received from a clairvoyant about her being psychic in a past life in Egypt and having her head cut off is correct.

The Council says they see a past life where Christine was in training as a high priestess in the temples of ancient Egypt. In the temple of Isis where she served most of the time, she was one of the young girls who were considered to have great promise as high priestess for the information she was capable of receiving.

The Council says the reason Christine didn’t make it to being a high priestess is that she was imprisoned for not worshiping exactly as she was taught. She had a desire to be out in nature and would sneak away from the temple. When this was found out she lost her position and was taken away.

The Council says Christine’s gift of intuition stayed with her and they see past lives after Egypt where this intuition was considerable. She carries this intuition into her current lifetime if she’d like to work with it and have it grow within her.

The Council suggests meditation and as she progresses she’ll be able to answer questions. They say Christine would do well in a class on developing her psychic ability if she took one. And they suggest she’ll be able to get some memories of the life she had in Egypt by meditating on this.

The Council says they don’t see Christine having her head cut off in this past life in Egypt. But they do see she had an early death from a brain aneurysm due to her imprisonment, and maybe this is why she was given information from a clairvoyant about losing her head.

The Council wishes Christine a great journey as she connects her past life in Egypt with her current lifetime. They suggest reading books on Egypt and visiting museums will bring her a lot of joy.

The Council says her desire to have a fuller life and more freedom in Egypt was brought into her current life. And they say as she connects with that lifetime, that feeling will return and push her forward in her current life to find what she’s looking for. And The Council adds they feel this will be a great experience for Christine.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Christine.

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.

Will This Be My Last Lifetime?

This post is inspired by a question from an anonymous reader who wants to know if The Council can confirm that this will be their last lifetime. (This question was asked on June 8, 2015, but was apparently not posted, so we’re posting it today.)

The Council is clear that this person is the creator of everything that they experience in their lifetime. So if they feel it is their last lifetime, they will create it that way. And yet when they return to spirit and see how much more there is to do, they may change their mind and come back to learn more and help others.

The Council says many who wish to return to spirit and not come back become guides and helpers to others who are here. And so if they feel this will be their last lifetime, when they return to spirit they will create that. Eventually they want to come back into physical form, but it’s entirely up to them. No one will tell them they have to come back.

The Council advises if it feels good to think this is their last lifetime, then they should stay with that thought and feel good in it. And The Council also says they can’t tell if this will be this person’s last life. This is entirely up to them, whether they come back or stay in spirit.

The Council says they will still be creating and there is no ending. And they remind us our greatest tool is choice, whether it is here or in spirit. And they encourage us to have fun in our choosing.

When asked if there’s anything else they want to discuss, The Council suggests we meditate on who you are, that all is well, that we have choices in everything, and that we are here to experience love. And they remind us to look at everything in our lives and know that we have created it.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to receive their full guidance.

Past Lives, Trust, and Future Reconciliation

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who asks why the man she was seeing said they were together in a few past lives when she doesn’t believe this to be true, and why was he confused how he felt about her. She also asks if there’s a possibility of a reconciliation with her ex-best friend who she does feel a past life connection with.

The Council sees there have been several lives together with the man she was seeing and they ask why is this so hard to believe. They see there is a feeling of not trusting what she’s being told because this man does not have the best intentions. And they suggest the possibility of getting away from this relationship because this lack of trust is a red flag from her higher self.

The Council says by bringing love into this situation she can honestly speak about this lack of trust with this person. But because there’s a trust issue they ask her to look at other places in her life where there have also been these issues. The Council says this person is the one who is helping bring forward these trust issues in her life because that is something she wishes to heal in this lifetime. And they also say that just because they have been in several lives together, this is not a reason to be together in this life. His purpose in her life has more to do with getting her to face her issues with lack of trust.

On the subject of reconciliation with her ex-best friend The Council sees this situation coming full circle and there will be a reconnection in the future and more understanding what this relationship is about. But first she needs to work through her trust issues so that when this relationship comes around again there will be a different outcome with more understanding.

When Bob asked for any specifics on how this woman might look at her trust issues The Council used the metaphor of peeling an onion one layer at a time. When she feels this distrust they encourage her to ask what this reminds her of and see what memory comes from that. And then to ask again and again, going further back in her life, until she finds a pattern to what set off this distrust.

And once she gets to that point everything will begin to change. Her understanding of how these people came into her life to help her experience and work through these distrustful situations will allow her to be more comfortable with the people in her life.

The Council reminds her to meditate on the next step, ask why she feels this mistrust, and to remember she is spirit in a physical body. Ask herself what she was trying to experience and the answers will come.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session below to get all The Council’s guidance for this woman.

Will I Have a Child, and Will It Be the Soul I Aborted?

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who recently had an abortion and wants to know if she’ll ever have children. The Council says yes, this is planned for. And when she asks if the aborted soul will return to her as her child, The Council says there’s a great bond between these two souls from sharing many lifetimes and they see an agreement between the two of them for this soul to return to her.

When this soul returns The Council says it will be male, and sees them learning much from each other. But mostly this child will come to help Anonymous on her path, and guide her to be different from how she’s been.

Anonymous says she thought she’d find love and get married, and wants to know why her positive affirmations about this aren’t working for her. The Council points out that even though she is using positive affirmations, she doesn’t believe this will happen. They say until she has more positive beliefs, her negative beliefs will continue to create what she doesn’t want.

When I (Bob) ask The Council for advice on how to change her beliefs, they say her affirmations are good, but they advise her to meditate, read spiritual books, and start practicing the manifestation of small things at first. When she can create these small things by thinking of them, and feels grateful when they happen, she will know that’s how she also creates the bigger things she wants in her life.

The Council advises her to appreciate herself and feel a happy vibration as often as she can. And they say meditation will help with this. They advise her to never give up her dream of being married to a man she loves. And they remind her that by feeling this won’t happen, she’s defeating herself.

The Council asks her to focus on the kind of man she’d like in her life, and by feeling this, that kind of man will be drawn to her. They advise her to ask the question in her mind as men walk by, are you the one? And thinking, I’m ready. If she can play this game, this will help her attract the man of her dreams.

And she’s also asking how she can bring positivity and change to her health and her career. The Council says with her meditations, her being more focused on happiness and the kind of partner she wants, and knowing a child is waiting to come to her, there is a new beginning and staying in these happy thoughts will change her health.

The Council asks what she wants to be, and looking for what she is interested in she’ll find it. By putting it out there that she wants a new, interesting career and being ready for this, she can draw this in.

The Council says the changing of her vibration will quickly fix her situation, and they advise her to have fun reading spiritual books, have fun meditating and looking for a new career, and most of all have fun playing the game of are you the one? By believing she’s ready for abundance and happiness, and that she’s ready for a child, all of this is there for her.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council below for all the details.

Is the Soul of My Aborted Brother One of My Children?

This post is inspired by a question from Laurel, who wants to know if the soul of a child her mother aborted has come to her as one of her children. She says she still thinks about this abortion 30 years later.

The Council says the soul of Laurel’s aborted half-brother is not the same soul as one of her four children in this lifetime. What The Council does see is a lifetime in ancient Egypt where Laurel raised and taught many of Pharaoh’s children. And each time a child died or was aborted there was a hurt she is trying to heal in her current lifetime. Her children in the current life made an agreement with her to come in and help her experience the joy of having them around.

The mother’s abortion brought up Laurel’s disappointment so it would, as she says, “haunt” her.” But her children in the current lifetime are there to stir Laurel’s memories of past lives and to help heal that hurt. She is at the point where she’s ready to explore this and slowly share it with her children so their minds and belief systems can open and they can become aware of other realities.

The Council realizes Laurel is bothered by her mother’s abortion, but they advise appreciating the children in her life right now, how they’ve helped her get to this point, and how they encourage her to heal this disappointment.

In the same way she was unable to prevent the Pharaoh’s wives from aborting their children, she was unable to stop her mother from aborting her brother. The Council points out Laurel’s disappointment with her mother for this, but says it is so she can heal it now and get to the point, with love, where she can understand what happened. She can allow her mother to be who she is. This is the law of allowing.

The Council advises Laurel to meditate on these things and begin to look at them differently. She hasn’t lost her aborted brother or Pharaoh’s aborted children because we are all connected in spirit. When Laurel understands The Council’s teaching that she is spirit in a physical body, she’ll experience many healings from her lifetime in Egypt, and The Council will be with her as she goes through this.

Listen to the entire 16-minute session below to hear all The Council’s guidance during this session and let us know what you think.

How to Work with Crystals

This post is inspired by a question about working with crystals from a long time reader named Jan who’s particularly interested in glass-like Andara crystals.

The Council begins by advising you to buy Andara crystals from someone who’s reliable and knowledgeable about them because they look like glass and many are not the real crystal. And they say when you hold one of these crystals you should immediately feel a warmth in your hands.

They talk about the ways crystals were encoded with information and knowledge in Atlantis, where Jan experienced working with them in another life. And they talk about meditating with crystals to receive the knowledge held within them.

The Council says Andara crystals are excellent for healing and developing psychic abilities and they recommend a way of working with them on the body for healing and for grounding.

And they recommend a way to work with multiple clear quartz crystals placed on different parts of the body to enhance meditation, psychic ability, and intuitiveness. Listen to our 11-minute session with The Council to answer Jan’s question.

Was My Stillborn Child a Family Member Who Passed?

This post is inspired by a question from Jyoti who asks if she shared a life with her stillborn child? Jyoti says a lot of her family have died and she wonders if it was one of those souls wanting to come back and be part of the family again?

The Council says Jyoti has a strong connection to this soul and they have shared many lives together, but they don’t see this particular life as one of them. In a life as far back as Atlantis she worked with this soul as a teacher. During the early American Indians they left their tribe and went out on their own. During the first World War there was deciphering messages and carrying information to others. In this lifetime this soul came forward to help Jyoti understand something about this pregnancy.

The Counsel says Jyoti has a strong connection with this soul and she can connect with it through meditation to get information about this life and past lives. Instead of feeling loss for the child Jyoti experiences support and guidance from this soul. If it’s wanted, Jyoti will have another opportunity to give birth to this soul, but there is much to learn from this soul while it’s still in spirit.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council for all the details.

(Note: Bob mentions the fetus was aborted in the recording, but Jyoti mentions in a comment that this child was stillborn, not aborted. We imagine from The Council’s point of view they consider that the fetus aborted this pregnancy because it chose not to come into physical reality while Jyoti and her husband were moving around, but Jyoti feels the distinction between abortion and stillborn is important and aught to be made. We apologize for this error.)

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.

Trusting You are Spirit in a Physical Body

Jaqueline’s Question

This is the first of two posts answering questions from Jaqueline, who asks The Council how to follow her inner guidance and find inner peace “even when things seem to be so messed up” in her life.

Jaqueline writes that she understands and sincerely believes in teachings like The Council’s and other teachers she’s familiar with who say, “We shouldn’t worry about anything ever because everything is gonna be just fine,” and, “We should enjoy life and think about whatever we want in our future in a positive vibration.” “But sometimes [it] is really hard to put this in practice.”

We like Jaqueline’s question because it frankly addresses a dilemma faced by many of us who are trying to follow teachings like The Council’s. In our saner moments these teaching make a lot of sense to us; they inspire us and lift our spirits. But sometimes, despite our best efforts, life can feel like an insurmountable challenge. When this happens it can feel equally challenging to remember and put in to practice these teachings about who we are as spiritual beings.

At the time Jaqueline wrote her questions for The Council she commented that, “All the time my head seems to be full of stressful thoughts about my future…about my present…if I’m going in the right direction…if I should do something…or nothing at all. Sometimes I get trapped in some drama and get very emotional about everything. Resuming, I have a hard time going with the flow.”

Stressful thoughts, feeling trapped, and feeling other unwanted emotions can be a challenge. When we feel this way and we also believe we’re not supposed to ever worry about anything and we should always be enjoying life, these expectations can sometimes add to the challenge of turning the situation around so we can ‘go with the flow’.

On July 24, 2012 we had a conversation with The Council (non-physical spiritual guides speaking through Cynthia) to get their advice on how to feel more in touch with well-being on a day-to-day basis when life seems to make this difficult.

This session contains many helpful insights, but for us the highlight is the reminder to meditate regularly on the idea that each of us is a spiritual being in a physical body. The Council advises that this type of regular meditation will help us feel more trusting that we really are spiritual beings, and this trust will help us through difficult times.

Interestingly, The Council says that as spiritual beings we actually look forward to these challenging human experiences because we view them as desirable opportunities to expand who we are as spirit into a physical reality.

This post relates the details of this session with The Council, and also includes some information on two meditation techniques they recommend. We plan to publish separate posts describing these meditations in more detail and eventually we plan to include audio recordings of these meditations as guided meditations.

This session also included The Council’s answer to Jaqueline’s question about whether she is going in the ‘right direction’ career-wise, and how career choices relate to experiences we have in other lifetimes. We feel this information is better suited to a separate post and we plan to publish that post in the near future also.

Communicating with the Spirit of Loved Ones Who Have Passed

Bobby’s Question

This post is a response to a question from a reader named Bobby, who believes, “Spirit…[is], at times, available to us here on Earth when we want signs, information, a visit.” Bobby says, “I find it curious…, when I’ve had sessions with mediums/psychics/sensitives, my wish/want to have a visit or get information from specific relatives does not seem to manifest. …I have questions as to why some seem able/available, while others make no ‘effort’ to so much as send information to us?”

Bobby continues: “I have visited with more than a few reputable mediums/psychics who have given me very clear, relevant information/guidance, so I am fairly certain it is not the person(s) ‘translating’ the information in my situation. And I have most definitely had my fair share of crisis in my life well worthy of someone stepping in and sending me a shout out. But if Spirit is sort of out there willing and waiting to communicate in one form or another, why is it only some want to step forward?”

Bobby also wants to know: “At what time (if ever) is Spirit that has left this realm, available to us here for information? For example, Osama bin Ladin recently left our planet. Is he going to be a Spirit out there that someone, anyone, can speak with?”

They are Always Available

In response to Bobby’s comment that she believes spirit is available, at times, when she’s looking for spiritual guidance, The Council replies:

“They are always available.

How to Create Harmony and Balance in a New Relationship

A Question from Sky

This post is a response to Sky’s question for The Council about how to find “the highest and most loving way to create harmony and balance in my new relationship.” Sky’s full question can be found here.

After reading Sky’s question to The Council, they expressed a desire to address it sentence by sentence to make sure they address each issue.

You Have Access to Higher Wisdom

The Council enjoyed Sky’s reference to them as “Beloved Council.” And they love that Sky is thankful for their higher wisdom, but they remind Sky and the rest of us that humans are spirit in a physical body and we have the potential to access the same wisdom, but we tend to forget we’re spiritual beings with this ability. The Council says it’s their desire to remind us of the wisdom we have within us, and they do this by “knocking us on the head a little bit, and opening the door of our heart a little bit” to help us access this wisdom within ourselves.

Meditation is a tool
To help you release yourself
From the limitations
Of your physical body.

How Do You Recognize True Inspiration from Spirit?

A Question from Chris

This post is a response to a question from Chris, who asks The Council, “How do you really know when messages from meditation are really what to follow?” Chris explains she often gets excited by ideas to go in a certain direction with her life, but when she considers these inspirations in the light of her day-to-day experience, they don’t seem so inspirational any more. Chris gives the following two examples: ideas about new people coming into her life that never seem to come, and ideas about a direction she should take for work that maybe don’t turn out the way she hoped.

Chris’s questions seem relevant for many readers, even if you’re not a meditator. If you ever felt good about an inspiration to take your life in a particular direction, only to end up feeling confused when the inspiration ends up feeling like an impractical and unattainable desire, you may find The Council’s guidance helpful.

Meditation for Heart Chakra and First Chakra

This post is the second part of a response to a request from Robyn for The Council’s support and guidance to:

  • Get past feeling it’s not safe to be herself
  • Stop believing she will be rejected if she expresses her true feelings
  • Start speaking and living her truth

In our first post on Robyn’s questions, we included a transcript of an 18 minute message of guidance from The Council. Part of this message was a suggestion to meditate 10-20 minutes a day to help Robyn connect with the pure spirit she truly is within her physical body.

Later in this session The Council provided step-by-step instructions for a meditation to energize the heart chakra and the First chakra, which they said would improve Robyn’s ability to use her thoughts to create the change she wants in her life. The Council pointed out this meditation can benefit all, not just Robyn. Here are the steps of the heart chakra – first chakra meditation:

Meditation for Spiritual and Emotional Inspiration

This post is inspired by a question for The Council from Gayle. Gayle asks how she can have a deeper understanding and a better sense of the information she often experiences from her ancestors.

Who are Our Ancestors?

When Cynthia and I asked The Council Gayle’s question, they were careful to point out that it’s limiting to think of our ancestors as only people in our family bloodline. From The Council’s point of view, all human beings are eternal ever-lasting soul energies that experience many lifetimes, in many bodies, in many families.

From this reincarnational point of view, The Council encourages us to think of our ancestors as all the souls we’ve come to know and love through experiences we’ve shared in all our lifetimes (as well as between lifetimes). The Council believes this is a less limiting way of thinking about ancestors – a way of thinking that can make it easier to access spiritual and emotional inspiration and guidance.

Meditation to Improve Spiritual and Emotional Inspiration

The Council advises that prayer and meditation will help us develop the intuitive abilities Gayle desires. The Council particularly recommends working with the Crown chakra at the top of the head for spiritual intuition and the Heart chakra in the center of the chest for emotional intuition. They emphasize that working with these two energy centers together is a particularly powerful way to improve our perception of the ever-present inspiration and guidance available from spirit.
