Did I Plan To Get Married And Have Children In This Lifetime?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Anonymous N.

Anon N: My primary question is: What is my purpose or goal in this lifetime?

Council: Just to be, to jump in here and create a life and create one with love, create one that’s fun, to create things where you can help others and help yourself. It’s all to learn now, in this time of your life, to work with your mind and find a happy, loving space.

Anon N: In recent years I’ve struggled with understanding if marriage and children are planned or supported for me in this life.

Council: How does it make you feel? Question yourself. When you have the imagery in your mind of being married and having children, how does it feel? Your feelings will not lie. You’re here to learn how to work with your feelings, which is your higher self giving you the direction of which way to go.

If you love the feeling of being married, having children, and you can see a happy home, then yes. If the idea of getting married brings you doubt and not wanting to be married, not that you have to be married, but you always have a choice. Does it feel uncomfortable? If it doesn’t bring you joy, then we would say for now, marriage isn’t something you wish to create.

Anon N: But I”ve also felt that I’m not sure how much of an interest I’ve had in marriage and children and what I should focus on otherwise. At the same time, I feel I’ve cultivated a solitary life out of convenience and comfort.

Council: And if you’ve created this life, which of course you have, are you happy? Does this feeling of what you do on a daily basis bring you joy? Do you need to add something to it? Your feelings will answer you, but ask the questions.

Anon N: But I’m not sure if it makes sense for me to remain in this solitary life.

Council: You may want a solitary life for a while and then be married. Or you may love the solitary life with the freedom it will give you and you don’t want to be married. There’s no right or wrong answer. There’s no: I’m supposed to do this. You’re supposed to do what you create, what makes you feel good?

Anon N: What do I need to know or hear right now for any kind of direction?

Council: Sit and imagine each scenario. Imagine them over and over again and then always see how you feel. It will lead you in the right direction.

Look at the people around you. Are they happily married? Are they not happily married? Do you look at the people around you and say, Oh, I’d like that. I’d like to have a life like that. Or do you look at the people around you and say, No way. I don’t want to be in a steady relationship, in a marriage to one person forever. That’s not what I want. I feel I want the freedom. And follow these feelings.

See what goes on around you. There will be clues. Your higher self will bring the right people to you to show you, to give you examples, and then you’ll know what to do. It’s your job to pay attention.

Happiness and blessings to everyone. Enjoy yourself. Find your power. Every day create happiness, even if it’s for the littlest thing. Because when you’re in the vibration of happiness you’ll be able to bring into your life at any time what will give you happiness on a longer-term basis. So have fun with it.

Are The Cause And Cure For Mental Illness The Same As Physical Illness?

This post answers a question from a long-time reader named, Jan.

Jan: The Council’s answer to Linsay’s question about health and sickness is wonderful and empowering. I’d be very interested to know, though, whether the same applies to what we commonly refer to as mental illness.

Council: Mental illness is created by the spirit that’s coming into this reality. Sometimes the spirit wants to experience mental illness because they’ve seen others in other lifetimes go through it and they want more understanding. Sometimes they’ve been with mental illness in another lifetime and didn’t like the way they handled it and they didn’t like the way they went through that reality.

But mostly, people with mental illness are coming into their current reality to help others get more understanding of their condition, to not be afraid of it, and to learn how to communicate and live with someone with mental illness. It’s a wonderful thing, as spirits, that we do that. But mental illness is a choice.

And so we’d say to you, Jan, if you know someone with a mental illness, it’s a gift to you. Look at it that way and send this person love and support in every way you can because you were chosen to be in this person’s life. And so we wish you well on your journey and your learning.

We send you blessings, and joy, and love, and the ability to have wonderful memories, to laugh, to hope, to stretch out your hand and help each other, and enjoy this life that you’ve created.

Remember, no one creates for you. It’s all up to you.

The people around you that you have chosen to be in your life have agreed to come and help you. They’ve agreed to learn from you. There are things they need from this experience of mental illness.

And so you’re all there and everything is planned with love. And when you go back into spirit you’ll go, “Wow, what a trip.” So enjoy and have fun.


Listen to the entire 3-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Jan and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it. You can also ask The Council your own question by typing it into one of the Comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages and we’ll answer it as soon as we have time.

Questions About How We Manifest Our Own Realities

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Firefly.

Firefly: I have some questions regarding manifesting our own realities. Are things like cigarettes and alcohol only bad for my health if I believe they are?

Council: Yes.

Firefly: I hear people warned that these things will lower one’s vibration.

Council: If you believe it will lower your vibration, it will. If you believe it will hurt your body, it will. You must be very sure of your thoughts around this because you’ll create it. And sometimes wondering if it’s bad for you, because you have that thought, it will be bad for you. So we’d suggest if you want to do this, you create yourself having a wonderful life, having a healthy life, and feeling great.

Firefly: Is there a good reason to be thinking about whether one’s vibration is lower or higher?

Council: You will know immediately by how you feel. When you’re depressed or when you’re angry, you know your vibration is low. And so you question: Why are you depressed? Why are you angry? Why are you sad? What’s going on? When you’re laughing, when you’re thinking of memories that have made you happy, when you’re planning the future things that will make you happy, your vibration automatically lifts. So you’re very much in control, and you’ll feel it.

Bob: So you’re saying there is a good reason to think about whether your vibration is lower or higher?

Council: We’d say you don’t have to focus on whether your vibration is high or low. Just focus on how you feel in the moment. What’s going on? And then the way you feel, or what thoughts made you feel that way? And you’ll know exactly how to lower or raise your vibration. It’s that simple.

Firefly: Does it really matter if we think about whether our vibration is lower or higher?

Council: What matters is that you have thoughts that make you feel good. And the more you can do that, you’re automatically in a raised vibration. You are automatically living a good life. And so stay in joy. We say this all the time. The answer to everything is: find the joy and you’ll feel the happiness. Find the love and you’ll feel the happiness. You’ll feel that lift in your vibration and that is the answer. Everything you look at, love it. Show compassion and happiness, and think thoughts that bring you joy, even if it’s something from when you were five years old, if it makes you laugh or if it makes you smile.

We can even say when you meditate or just sit in a chair for five minutes, smile. Sit there and smile. Don’t think of a thing, just smile. You’ll find that you feel better.

Firefly: Do people like me ever decide to indulge in alcohol and cigarettes before coming into this life just for the purpose of having fun?

Council: Yes, of course. And then you can perhaps experience having fun and not needing these things. Or having a life with drugs and alcohol and loving every part of it. It’s how you think about it. You are in control.

Firefly: If I feel like I’d like a better income and more money very quickly, what’s the best way to align with these resources?

Council: Play games, walk into stores, look at expensive stuff, see yourself buying it, see yourself winning the lottery, see yourself with a large bank account, look at your checkbook and write numbers in it that give you much more money than you have. Play the game and experience it. You can buy whatever it is. If you want a house, picture the house. What does it look like? Picture every detail of it and that it’s yours. And the more you practice having the things you want that are expensive, the universe will bring that to you. Actually it’s you that’s putting out into the universe, “This is what I want.” And when you realize this is what you want, and you have fun with it, it must come to you.

Firefly: I’m in a loving relationship with a man who’s a good friend. By imagining how I’d like the relationship to expand and go in beautiful directions, am I creating this relationship?

Council: Of course. You create with your thoughts

Firefly: Is he creating a completely different reality or relationship, or are we creating one together?

Council: What he’s creating can be different, but if you do come together, then that part of you that’s creating it, you’ll both create it and come together. And there are so many different parts of you that part can go off and create something very different, but you won’t experience it because the part of you that’s in your current reality wanting this, because you want it, and you focus, and you create it, you will have it.

Firefly: Does this creation stretch over many of our lifetimes?

Council: Anything you can create, you can create in any lifetime, over and over again if that’s what you wish.

Bob: Do you see Firefly and the man she’s in a relationship with have shared previous lifetimes?

Council: Most of the lifetimes were as siblings, and so that has no bearing on what’s created in your current lifetime. Focus on what you want now.

Firefly: I sometimes want another child with this man who I love. I have three children from a previous relationship. Is it outlandish to want to manifest a baby that’s ours, but have the pregnancy be delightful and non-damaging to my body at age 43?

Council: Why is that outlandish? Just that thought will keep you from creating it. You can create anything you want. If this is what you want at this time of your life, of course you can create it, but the doubts will get in the way. And so it doesn’t matter. There are women that are older that have created pregnancies. Think of what you want and why you want it. Does it bring you happiness? Then go off and create it. See it and feel it like it’s already yours.

Firefly: By doing my best to visualize getting pregnant, can we really create an outcome that defies what we believe we’ve learned from scientific observation?

Council: You can create a future that has nothing to do with scientific information. You can create something that’s way off the charts. There’s no limit. If 100 people say you can not create this because of reasons A, B, C, etc., it doesn’t matter. What matters is what you believe. And so take the limits off and create whatever it is.

Firefly: My child is worrying me and I want this child to be safe and well. How can I help them best?

Council: See it. Connect with the spirit that has agreed to come into your life. If it’s something you both want, if you agreed upon it in spirit and the spirit said, Well, let’s look at your life at the time I want to come in. Is it something I want to experience? Is it something I want to share with you? Everything is possible. Connect to the spirit, offer it a home, offer it safety, offer it help, offer it happiness, and most of all offer it love.

Firefly: How much power do I have to create change for others?

Council: You can not create change for others. Everyone is their own creator. You can help them. You can create what you know they want and see it for them to give them more support, more energy, and strength to stay with the thought of what they want, but you can not create it.

Firefly: Is it possible, in imagining all that one wishes to manifest, to be asking too much or employing greed?

Council: There’s no greed. There’s no limitation on what you can ask for. Everybody can have everything they want. There’s no limit to anything. And so if you want 100 different things, you are not taking them away from another person. There’s enough for everyone. Use your power of manifestation.

And so we send you blessings, and joy, and love, and the ability to have wonderful memories, to laugh, and to hope, and to stretch out your hand and help each other, and enjoy this life that you’ve created. Remember, no one creates for you. It’s all up to you. The people around you that you’ve chosen to be in your life have agreed to come and help you. They’ve agreed to learn from you. There are things that they need from this.

And so you’re all there, everything is planned with love, and when you go back into spirit you’ll go, “Wow, what a trip.” So enjoy and have fun.

Why Am I Plagued With Injuries That Prevent Me From Running?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader about their running injuries.

Anon:  I’ve been plagued by running issues lately. Running is critical to my mental and physical health. It’s also time spent connecting with friends.

Council: A belief that you have is that running is critical for you. When your spirit is ready to change that belief, which we see is coming up, you will change the thought that it is critical. It is not critical. It is a belief. Slowing you down by not having you run is your higher self telling you there’s more to learn, there’s more to do. And so when you don’t slow down and look at your life and at options, it’s common to have something happen that will slow you down.

And so we’d say meditate and examine the thought: Why do you think running is critical to your health? Believing this will make it critical, but there’s nothing critical to your health. What is critical is what you believe. And so when you believe you are spirit, you are in control. And it’s possible it’s time to let up on the running, maybe just for a while, and learn something else.

Anon: Why do I keep injuring myself while running?

Council: To give you more time to explore.

Anon: My knee, my foot, it’s driving me crazy. I don’t have time or money for physical therapy and I don’t understand why it’s necessary.

Council: It’s necessary because you need the time to discover more about yourself, to discover more interests, to perhaps change your path and increase what it is in your life, and to practice manifesting what it is in your life. And so that is why this is happening.

Anon: Aren’t our bodies meant to be in motion?

Council: Some bodies are and some aren’t.

Anon: I feel like my vibration is highest when I run often, so I’m trying to understand where these barriers are coming from.

Council: Ahh, so you’ll find a way to feel a high vibration without having to run. Very interesting.

Anon: I’ll take it easy, but then can I meditate myself back to a near-daily run?

Council: You can, but your higher self knows what you’ve planned before coming into this reality. And so trust your higher self. Meditate. Instead of meditating on running again, meditate to see how to expand. What’s out there that your higher self, which is you, has planned for you in this lifetime? What a wonderful adventure that is.

When you meditate, connect with your higher self and say, “Show me the way. What is it that we planned?” And let go and relax, and don’t be consumed about having to run. You’ll find your world expanding and you’ll learn more about yourself. And so we say relax and meditate.

Look how smart your higher self is when you’ve planned something and you aren’t heading in that direction. So something is created, which is the knee, ankle, and leg problems, to have you go and find the time and go in the direction of the things you wanted to learn. It’s a wonderful gift.

And so we send you blessings, and joy, and love, and the ability to have wonderful memories, to laugh, and hope, and stretch out your hand and help each other, and enjoy this life that you’ve created. Remember, no one creates for you. It’s all up to you. The people around you that you’ve chosen to be in your life have agreed to come and help you. They’ve agreed to learn from you. There are things that they need from your experience. And so you are all there, everything is planned with love, and when you go back into spirit you’ll go: “Wow, what a trip.” So enjoy and have fun.

Was My Mother’s Death A Natural One?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Vibrationally Aware.

Vibrationally Aware: I just found out my mother was found dead in a hotel room today. I’m sad and I want to know two things. Was it a natural death? And does she have a message for me and my siblings?

Council: Was it a natural death? Each death – even though there is no such thing as death – each transition is planned. The way out of this reality, the ending of this reality, is planned by the spirit. And so, yes, it was a natural transition. Was it expected? No. There were health problems, we see here, but from what we see, all has gone exactly as was planned.

We understand you’re sad, but we’d like you to focus more on: She completed a life, she’s in spirit now, she’s learning from this experience, sharing with the other spirits what it was like, what was felt, what was learned, and leaves lessons for you and the family.

And so we’d advise you to ask yourself, besides the sadness, what have you learned from your mother’s life? What did she teach you by her actions? How did she respond to problems? And how did she move forward in her life?

Your mother’s passing was set up to teach the family, and we see there’s a lot of chaos that’s gone on there. And now each person, because of this shock, must learn to deal with a mother transitioning, understanding this is how she planned to end this reality and what your mother was all about. Each person is to learn about themselves through this transitioning, and that is the most important thing. We here know she’s among us and she is fine and she is happy, and when she’s ready she’ll create another reality and move on.

And so your lesson and the family’s lesson in all of this is, what did you experience? How is this experience helping you to move forward in your life? And to come to a place where you can focus on the thought that she’s very happy. And where she is, she can see you, she can see how you develop, and how you move on. And even from that, she will learn. And perhaps in her next incarnation, she’ll use what she’s learned from seeing you do what she’d want, to create in her next life. And so it’s all about creation. it’s all about what was experienced, and how to move on.

Bob: Vibrationally Aware asks if her mother has a message for her and her siblings, in addition to what you’ve already mentioned?

Council: The message always is that they send you love. The message is: Try not to separate within the family, and be together when it’s possible. It was important for her to know that her presence could somehow hold this family together. And from where she is, she’d like to see how you move forward. And so when you can, stay together. Show each other love. Try to understand each other, and that would make her feel happier, from where she came from to where she is now.

And the answer to all questions about how to improve your life and your reality is to be grateful for everything, have positive thoughts, and send yourself and others love.

What Past Lives Did I Chose To Work On In This Life, And Why?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Maureen.

Maureen: I’d like to know the main scenarios of the past lives that I chose to continue to work on in my current lifetime, and why.

Council: There’s never one thing you want to accomplish in each life, but what we see here is the main thing that’s happened in other lives that you’d like to work on in this life is self-esteem and teaching.

Look at the life you’ve created now. Are you proud of your creations? Are you satisfied and feel happy about what you’re doing? Is there more you want to do and don’t feel capable of?

To work on that you must look at yourself, see what you desire, and then find a way – and we always say the quickest way is meditation – to meditate and see it, and then see yourself accomplishing it, whatever it is. It could be the tiniest thing or winning a million dollars. But it’s very important for you to see your accomplishments in your current lifetime, and then to help others that are in a place with low self-esteem. You’ve experienced that in other lives.

First find a way to look at yourself, see your accomplishments, be grateful for them, then see what else you want to accomplish, and then share these desires, even if it’s just with friends. Share what you want, and as you share it, just that little bit plants a seed in others, and they will learn from you, and they will go on and accomplish more.

Those are the main topics that you want to be done at this time. There’s plenty of work to be done there. And so we’d say, now it the time to work on this.


Listen to the entire 4-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Maureen and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it.

Do We Have To Unite With Our Twin Flame To Spiritually Ascend, Or With Our Multidimensional Self?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Bluestar Child.

Bluestar Child: In general, is it necessary to unite with your twin flame to spiritually ascend from the third dimension here on Earth, or is it an attachment of the ego that we need to let go of and actually have to unite with our own multi-dimensional selves?

Council: Exactly, let go of the ego. You don’t need anything or anyone else to move up the ladder and go from one dimension to another, which you’ve already done.

And so it’s the beliefs that you must have a twin soul, you have to have a soulmate. No. You need to create what you want with your thoughts. You need, in your prayers, in your meditations, to always want to connect with that higher part of you that knows what it wants to do, that knows what you wanted to experience in this lifetime. That’s all that’s needed. No one else is needed.

BS: Is there a true twin flame?

Council: When you create a twin flame, you take a part of your spirit and send it out there and create the kind of person you want this twin flame to be in your life. So it’s you (as a spirit) taking on the persona of another person: a man, a woman, an animal, whatever it is. But it is you, and you can create this as many times as you want and in as many realities as you want. The twin flame is you.

It’s like you looking in a mirror and saying, “Let me put on this Halloween costume and let me see what I find with this person that I’m creating. What is it about me that I want to learn? Why do I want to create this twin flame so I can feel comfortable? Why do I want to create this twin flame so that I can have a lot in common, so that I can grow at a pace that feels comfortable, that I’m supported by someone (and that someone is you) to go through this reality and [go through] what I want to experience.”

Bob: Do you differentiate between the terms twin flame and soulmate?

Council: The soulmate is someone that you create because you think this soulmate will be the great love of your life. And it’s another spirit that’s agreed to come into your life and play that part.

But when you create this twin flame, it’s the mirror of you. And so there’s not another spirit that’s involved in that.

Bob: So on the subject of twin flames, if it’s another person, how is there not another spirit involved in that?

Council: A twin flame is you. It’s a part of you that you’ve sent out to come in the form of a person, or an animal, or whatever it is that you need.

A soulmate is another soul that perhaps you’ve been in other lifetimes with, or it can be someone new, but it’s a different soul, a different spirit that said, “Yes, I will come in and be whatever we decide we need to be in this lifetime.”

The twin flame is you creating with you.

Bob: I think I understand. It sounds like you’re saying that in spirit you send a part of yourself and create another person, but it’s your actual spirit in the form of another person.

Council: Exactly.

Bob: And you’re calling them a twin flame.

Council: Yes.

Bob: It doesn’t involve the spirit or soul of another.

Council: Excellent, Bob. Yes, you’ve got it.

Bob: But the soulmate…

Council: …is another spirit.

Bob: Thank you very much for that clarification. I appreciate that.

Council: Good question.


Bob: Now we have a point of clarification that we’d like to ask about in our post where we answered Bluestar Child’s first four out of five questions. It was a post entitled, Do I Have A Twin Flame, Not A Soulmate?

Early in that post Bluestar Child said, “I would like to ask The Council if I have a twin flame, and I don’t mean a soulmate.” And you said, You’re going to try to answer them. This can be difficult to understand.” And we appreciate that you just provided some of that clarification.

Council: Yes, we’ve just given you the simplest explanation.

Bob: Now in that previous post, just after that statement, you said, “We were all created at the same time. There are no new souls.” And then you said, “There are souls that are new by creating your current reality.” And we’d like some clarification on those three statements.

Council: There are no new souls, but we’ll say there are millions, or a nice word that Cynthia likes, cazillions of souls everywhere, in every reality, in every dimension. And so there’s not a new soul being born. What happens is, in your reality when you bring a person in, it’s someone that’s agreeing to be here. It’s not a brand new soul. When you give birth, it’s not a brand new soul. The soul could be thousands of years old. We are all here. We are all doing many, many, many things.

So there’s no need to create a new soul. When you feel you want to create something, there’s nothing brand new. You’ll send out a part of yourself for whatever reason so that to your human mind it seems like a new soul, but it isn’t. There’s no need for anything new. We’re all here forever.

Bob: That’s interesting. So it sounds like you’re saying that on a spiritual level, all souls were created at the same time.

Council: Always was, always will be. And there are no words in your language to explain this. It’s just that we’re vibration and we are energy that goes on forever. There is a change in form perhaps, but we are always there.

Bob: And the change in form doesn’t involve any new souls?

Council: Exactly. And believe this or not, we all know each other, all cazillion trillion millions. We’re all connected. How wonderful is that? That will blow your mind.

Bob: So when you say there are souls that are new by creating your current reality, you’re saying that an old soul can seem new by bringing them into our current reality and experiencing them for the first time.

Council: Exactly. It could be a soul that you’ve never been with before so they would feel new.

Bob: But this soul and all souls were originally created all at the same time.

Council: Exactly.

Why Did I Choose This Life And My Husband?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: I have severe childhood trauma. I’ve never felt so lost in life. I’m 37 years old. Growing up I had a very turbulent environment with no therapy. I’m not sure if I can trust my thoughts. I feel crazy and lonely. When I was 26, my son was diagnosed with cancer. When I was 32 I lost my sister to heroin. My parents are still drunks and I feel like I’m their parent.

What’s worse, I’m not sure if I’ve settled in my marriage. I’m unfulfilled internally and I’m not sure what I should do. Fear is definitely there. Can you tell me why I chose this life, and why I chose my husband?

Council: You chose this life with all these experiences you mention to find yourself and to learn about yourself. How do you handle deaths in your family? How do you handle being in a relationship that you think you’ve settled for? How have you gotten through and handled your childhood traumas? It’s all about looking at yourself.

And so here, until now, you’ve had a difficult reality. So we say, Where’s your hope? Where’s your focus now?

You can feel lonely. And of course if you meditate you’ll eventually learn that you’re not alone. There are guides, there are angels, and there are ancestors that are around you to help you. But you need to sit down in quiet time and ask for this help. Go through every issue one at a time. Tell yourself: I need to understand this. How do I change my feelings about this? And know, absolutely without any doubt, that you will get the answers to your questions. You are not alone.

It’s the reality you created to go through these experiences, feel the loneliness, and then say, I must change this. I feel horrible. I don’t understand this. And you know what? I don’t want to go through this anymore. So let’s see what I can do.

And so you find joy. If you have to watch a movie, if you need to read a book, if you need to put on music, or do anything that will immediately uplift you. And when you’re in this beautiful, uplifting vibration, start thinking about what you want. What is something new you can bring in? And then follow that desire. Follow that idea in your head. Don’t give up on it.

Your purpose for coming into this life was to experience things from past lifetimes that you needed to repeat here – the losses and the sadness – but this time around you wanted to not just experience it, but to change it.

Bob: Can you give Elizabeth any clues about why she chose her husband?

Council: Because she’s been with this person in other lifetimes – and we see here there were a few good relationships – when this other soul was planning this path they agreed to come again and be supportive, or not be supportive and make things more difficult so that she’d learn on her own that she could change it. And so it was from being in spirit and deciding to come in and be whatever was needed for you to realize you can change things.

So you haven’t settled. You have agreed in spirit to this marriage. This person is here. Do you wish for your marriage to work out? Then you focus on that. Do you wish to move on and create something else? Then you focus on that. But you’re not settling. You’re going through all the things you wanted to go through to learn that you are the creator.

And many, many people at this time are going through their lives and realizing, I’m in charge here. My God, I can make this happier. What have I been doing being miserable? I can really change this job, this relationship, this sickness, this loneliness, this sadness. I can change all of it.

And so there’s a great shift taking place in your reality at this time. Everyone is heading toward feeling better about themselves and they are starting to create exactly what it is that they want.

Do I Have A Twin Flame, Not A Soulmate?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Bluestar Child.

BSC: I would like to ask The Council if I have a twin flame, and I don’t mean a soulmate?

Council: Ahh, here we go again. In your reality so many have decided to bring in this twin flame or this soulmate. This can be difficult for you to understand, but we’ll put it out there in as gentle and simple a way as we can.

We were all created at the same time. There are no new souls. There are souls that are new by creating your current reality*. And so this twin soul that you’re looking for…

Bob: Twin flame?

Council: The twin flame that you’re looking for is you. You are the twin flame, the twin soul. When you meet this person you say, “Is this my twin flame because I look at this person and I feel so connected? We like so many of the same things. We say the same words. We understand the same things.”

It’s because this person is you in another form. This person is a mirror that’s reflecting part of yourself back to you. Isn’t that interesting?

BSC: What spiritual contract did I have with George, a boy I studied with at university? Was he my twin flame, or was he just another soulmate in my life?

Council: He was just another soulmate. You had a connection way back in Lemuria where you worked together, working with energy, working with crystals, working with the environment, and working with plants. And we see here in that particular life there was a great friendship between the two of you. And so you’ve come back together in your current life to meet, to recognize each other on a higher level, and to have a greater understanding of some particular things in this reality. And so there should be comfort in that relationship, but it’s another soul.

BSC: If I have a twin flame, but it’s not this boy, George, is my twin flame incarnated on another planet (for example, in the Plieades, where I come from, or another dimension), or is he in my current incarnation?

Council: This twin flame, as we’ve said, is you. And so when you meet someone, and you can meet many people in this reality and think, this is my twin flame, because each part of you will be reflected back to you in different ways, but you’ll feel the connection. You are connecting to another part of you that wishes to give you comfort and show you another way to handle things. It’s you teaching you how to be. And it’s wonderful because you’re just relying on you.

BSC: If he is incarnated now, have I met him? Or do I have to meet him in this life?

Council: There will be a meeting. What we see, what is planned, quite soon you’ll meet this part of you.

Bob: So Bluestar Child will meet a man who she’ll consider a twin flame?

Council: In her current reality there’s a spirit that will appear in her current life that will be considered, because of the connection which will be felt, would be considered a twin flame. It hasn’t happened yet.

*Note: It’s not clear to Cynthia and me what The Council means when they say, “We’re all created at the same time. There are no new souls. There are souls that are new by creating your current reality.” We intend to ask The Council for clarification on these points and either publish them soon in a new post, or we’ll update the current post to make their ideas more clear. Thanks for your patience.

How Can We Advance Humankind And Help The Universe Evolve?

This post answers two very important questions for The Council from a reader named, Richard.

Richard: Will you summarize the general guidelines for what each person can do to positively contribute to the advancement of humankind and the evolution of the universe?

Council: For everyone who’s reincarnated, it was always your decision to come here to have fun, to find different ways to do things, and to have new experiences. So how do you evolve? What makes things better?

What makes things better is if you can go day to day, no matter what goes on in your life, and feel love. That’s what makes things better. Show kindness to yourself and others. Say kind words, be uplifting, and help out. Know and feel when you do these good things and tune into yourself. How do you feel? Because doing good for others will always make you feel good.

Bring white light into this reality. And when you focus on bringing the white light in for your whole planet, that helps to bring more positive thoughts not only to yourself, but everyone. This white light and acts of love and kindness will change the reality you’ve created. And that is how you advance. You stand strong in the reality of: you are spirit and you are love. You’ve come in here to spread this love everywhere. And when you can connect with that love and share it on a daily basis, you evolve. And it’s wonderful because you bring everyone in your reality with you. It affects everyone when you are kind.

Bob: So it sounds like you’re saying the advancement of humankind and the evolution of the Universe depends on the advancement of the individual and the evolution of the individual.

Council: Every individual has a position in this reality of bringing forth love. You knew this and planned it, and jumped in here with the attitude that: I will bring forth love no matter what. When you do this, understand it’s the energy you’re putting out there. It’s not just for you. And the more you love, it grows and grows to the people around you, to where you live, to the whole planet.

And many don’t realize this, but the energy you put out and the thoughts you put out affect everyone. You are releasing these thoughts, these vibrations, and these feelings. Would you like to be part of changing your world into something positive, or something negative?

It’s so simple. You don’t have to go and fight a war. You don’t have to try to do this and try to do that. You just have to love, and show it every day.

Bob: So to restate what I said before, by showing love on a personal level you’re advancing humankind and the evolution of the Universe?

Council: Yes.

And also we watch you every day. We see how you handle things. We see how you’re living your life. And when you’re in this love and you’re spreading it, it doesn’t stop there. It affects us in spirit. We grow from this. We are in a place of great love, and when you’re negative, we are still positive, but when you show love and you put more love out there, we grow also.

Richard: What can individuals do to discover their soul’s purpose for incarnating?

Council: Everyone has a different purpose. The main purpose is what we’ve said about love. Maybe in this lifetime you want to be a teacher, maybe this lifetime you want to travel a lot, maybe this time you want a family. And that is secondary because no matter what you pick, the traveling, the family, the teacher, the actor, everything you do, the main point of you being here is to spread love in what you choose this lifetime.

Many people in your reality think, what did I choose to do? Am I doing the right thing? When you’re in spirit there are many that don’t choose anything. There are many that say: Let me just jump in and wherever I see I’m needed, if it feels good I’m going to do it. If I can help others I’m going to do it. I’m going to meditate. I’m going to help people through their hard times. I’m going to send beautiful thoughts out. They say this because their higher self knows this is true.

The #1 reason to be here isn’t should I do this? Should I open a store? Should I open a gym? The #1 reason you’re here is to be of service and to show love. And as you show it to others you will feel it. You’ll also grow. You will also bring peace to this world.

And as we’ve said before, when the time comes there will be so much love, there will be so much peace, and there will be many diseases where all of a sudden cures are found. There will be many diseases that no longer exist. They’ll be wiped out. And that’s from the work you do by showing love.

Pregnant With An Unplanned Third Child At 40 That My Husband Doesn’t Want?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, L.

L: I’d love to ask The Council’s advice. I’ve recently determined I’m pregnant with our third child. It was unplanned, and I’m 40 years old. I’m struggling to find clarity in my heart about what to do. We’re in a big transition, seeking a new home and work. And physically I feel how challenging another child would be on my body and my energy. And my husband doesn’t want another child.

Council: You already know your husband doesn’t want this child. It sounds like you have a problem with knowing how you’d handle this new child and that it will be stressful.

And so we’ll say here, where we can never make the decision for you, it’s so wonderful that no matter what you decide, we see here that this spirit, and you, and your husband have agreed to either way, having the baby or not having the baby. It was thought that spirit would come in at a certain time and you would then all decide, were you ready?

And so if it’s something that makes you uncomfortable, that you don’t feel in your heart it is a good decision, it’s okay not to bring forth this child into this reality. You’ve all agreed to this. And so there’s no wrongdoing. There’s nothing to feel guilty about. The child will go on and, if it wishes, be born to another couple. It may stay in the spirit world for a while, or a long time. Nobody will suffer from this.

And so the decision is yours, and it should be made with love. You and your husband send each other love and send this spirit love. This spirit already is sending you love.

And so everything, no matter which way you decide, will be perfect.

L: And yet I also feel it’s a divine blessing to conceive without trying, and there’s immense grief considering how to end the pregnancy.

Council: It’s a divine blessing because you are divine, the child is divine, your husband is divine, and you’d agreed to have this child if it was at a good time and if it would be good for all three of you. So the three of you brought this pregnancy forward and brought it through with the knowledge that if it wasn’t a good time to have this child, you could end the pregnancy and release the child.

L: It’s very early, but I wouldn’t wish to wait very long if we take this path of stopping the pregnancy.

Council: This is understandable so all of you can go on. The spirit can go on, you can go on, and your husband can go on.

L: Can you shed any light on spirit and moving forward with love for our entire family?

Council: There’s all love for you in spirit. All of you have it within you. All of your higher selves know what’s planned. And any decision, and we say it again, any decision that you make is perfect.

Where Should I Relocate To?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader.

Anon: I no longer feel like I’m living in the correct place. I’m drawn to relocate to either a new province, or overseas where my husband grew up.

Council: We see here already that this was your desire in pre-planning this incarnation, so we suggest you follow through on that. And also, when you do relocate, there will be beneficial ways to travel, and to see other places, and to meet other people. That was all that was wanted also in this incarnation.

Anon: Moving overseas feels more freeing to me…

Council: Yes

Anon: … but I’m concerned because the country appears to be politically unstable.

Council: At this time in your incarnation there are a lot of places that feel unstable. And yet it’s your choice to be there to learn how to experience it, how to deal with it, and to turn it around and make it favorable for you and your family.

Bob: So it sounds like the pre-planning was to move overseas to the country where her husband grew up.

Council: Yes.

Anon: I feel the urge to move quite quickly and I’m not sure where this is coming from. I was wondering if The Council could provide some guidance for me. Thank you very much. I really enjoy reading all the questions and responses.

Council: The feeling of moving more quickly is because you want to get on your path and experience what you wished to do in pre-planning this. There’s nothing negative about that feeling, but it’s just your higher self telling you, “Okay, let’s do it.” And it will be a wonderful experience for you.

Bob: Getting back to what you mentioned earlier about in their travels, there was something about other places.

Council: Yes, and it could be just day trips or week trips or just to move around, but it all will be beneficial and for things that are wanted.


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

Please Help Me With Some Career Guidance

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Linda.

Linda: I would like to ask The Council if they could guide me regarding my career calling.

When I was a teenager I thought I knew exactly what university to go to and what to study. Unfortunately my plans were disrupted by physical and emotional abuse from my father and stepmother, and my plans to study stopped making sense. I started to feel lost in my life and many things stopped giving me joy.

Council: That feeling of being lost, when you remember that feeling, that was one of the things you wanted to do when you came here. It was to help people that also had problems of feeling lost, whatever their reasons were. That’s part of why you pre-planned this experience of being lost.

Now that you know you pre-planned this, in order to move forward it’s good to review your pre-plan, to go through the memories of feeling lost, what you felt like, and if you wished you had someone help you, what would that look like? This will give you a clue about what you have to learn to move forward in your career.

Linda: My family was always important to me, and losing them caused me great pain and grief.

Council: And so you’ll meet others that lose parts of their family, whether from abuse, or death, or sickness, or moving far away. You’ll find people who are suffering the loss of family.

Linda: Instead of focusing on my career choice, I was looking for answers to my questions. I wanted to know why I went through so much hardship as a child in so many ways.

Council: You went through this to learn from it, to recognize it, and to have such compassion and such understanding when others come to you with that problem.

Linda: Now I know that this experience was a pre-birth agreement I made…

Council: Exactly.

Linda: …and that the purpose in my life is to help people.

Council: Exactly.

Linda: But I still don’t know how to help. Can you please help me and guide me on this?

Council: You can help people by being a friend and listening to what they need to share. And sometimes listening is just having an ear so they feel someone is there for them and you don’t have to jump in with how to fix it. Sometimes helping people is taking classes and getting licenses to run your own business the way you want to help people. And sometimes you can volunteer for abused children or orphans. You can volunteer for the elderly, who will feel very lost because their families have no time for them.

There are many, many ways you can reach out and help. But we’d say, at first, listen to your friends, listen to the people you know, or people you work with. What are they talking about? And without making a big deal about it, say something that will help. Show some compassion. That’s how you begin to help. And you’ll see more and more people will be drawn to you because they’ll feel your energy of wanting to be there for them. And so start slowly and start simply.

Linda: Thinking back on what I really love, I found that I enjoyed finding answers to my challenges. I also enjoy helping children because I feel I can connect well with them. Is the right path for me to become a Child Psychologist?

Council: That’s a wonderful path for you. When you think about it, how do you feel? Does it give you joy? Are you excited to go into this? Are you excited to take on studying and to learn and share it? If you get joy, then this is exactly what’s meant for you.

Linda: And start studying psychology?

Council: Yes.

Linda: If not, is there a profession that’s right for me that I’d find fulfilling and be able to help those who’ve been through something similar to me?

Council: Anything with children, anything with the elderly, whether you went into nursing, whether you went into being a caregiver for many people, or you just took care of one person on an ongoing basis. You need to find places where you’re needed, where people need you.

And when you look around and have it in your mind that you want to help people, all of a sudden doors will open because you’re in line with your intention. Just by thinking, “I want to help, where do I go?” you’re putting that out there and you’ll always be shown the way.

Bob: It sounds like you’re saying that studying Psychology is good for Linda, but it may not be necessary.

Council: Anything that makes you feel good, going back to school and learning Psychology and having a career in this, if it feels good, it’s for you. If you’d rather not go through all that schooling and just work in a nursing home, in a hospital, or in an orphanage, then that’s the way to go.

When you think of each thing to try, stop and see how you feel. Okay, I’m going to study Psychology. How does that feel? Okay, I’m going to work in a nursing home. How does that feel? Okay, I’m going to go volunteer with children in an after-school program. How does that feel? Everything that occurs to you to do, stop, sit with it, how does it feel? See yourself doing these things. How does it feel? And your answer will be right in front of you.

Linda: When I look at the people around me, I feel like they all know what they’re supposed to do in life.

Council: Everyone thinks everyone else knows what to do. Everyone knows what path to be on. Everyone knows how wonderful life is. And of course, everyone is going through their own challenges and their own personal growth. Many people have no idea what they’re supposed to do in life. They take a jump, a leap of faith, and try something. We think this is wonderful, but when you take that jump, before you jump, before you lift your feet off the ground, how does it feel?

Linda: And I’m ashamed that I still don’t know what to do.

Council: It’s wonderful that you don’t know what to do. Because by putting it out there – I don’t know, I need signs, I need a direction – you’ll create many different possibilities. You’re not just honed to one thing. Think about what you’re doing as an adventure. I don’t know what to do, but it’s coming to me. I’ll be shown the way. And of course, you will be.

You can also ask The Council your own question by typing it into one of the Comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages.

What Profession Am I Supposed To Pursue?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Bluestar Child.

BC: I’m feeling like I’m in a tunnel and I don’t see the light at the end. I studied to work with immigrants, but there isn’t much work in this field and they don’t pay much for it. So I decided to change my course and study Veterinary Nursing, but after several years I’m stuck and I can’t finish it. I feel disappointed and very tired, and I don’t know whether to leave this path or not. I’d like to know if the real reason for this situation is because this job isn’t truly aligned with my life mission.

Council: So many people in your reality think there’s a mission, or there’s something they have to do, and that’s not true. If you don’t plan in spirit something that you want to do, or express, or learn about, you just come here to be, to have fun, to bump into other spirits that you’ll know. You’ll find things to do that just bring you interest and you learn about. There’s no mission that you must accomplish. You’re just here to be.

And sometimes you’ll try different things and nothing gives you joy. You’d never stay in a career that doesn’t give you joy. If it was pre-planned in spirit and you went to work at whatever it is, you’d find joy in it. If you don’t find joy in it, it wasn’t pre-planned. You don’t come to the Earth path to be miserable. You come here to find wonderful things to do, to recognize each other, to love each other, and spread the love around. That’s why you’re here.

BC: I feel lost. I don’t know if I’ve been wrong about everything. I’d like to know what would be the profession or activities I’m supposed to do, or for which I have more qualities in this incarnation.

Council: Okay, so as we’ve said, there’s no suppose, but because you’ve done it before, you wanted the freedom to have a lot of fun in this life. So you thought, perhaps it would be fun to work with very young children and teach them about life through games, and teach them to be creative.

And so you can study, if you like, how to work with children. You can become a teacher. You can become what we’d call a caretaker and just work for one family, and care for children and teach them. You can learn how to be an assistant in a daycare center. And so the thing was you wanted to teach through joy.

Bob: Do you have any comments on Bluestar Child pursuing the Veterinary Nursing career?

Council: Only pursue that if it gives you joy. You worked with animals in other lifetimes and loved it. Well maybe you don’t love it this time. And so we’d say, what you thought would be fun was to be an adult, but still able to be a child.

BC: I’d also like to know if I could earn enough money in Veterinary Nursing to emancipate myself from my family.

Council: Yes, of course. If you go into this seriously and find joy in it … make sure you find joy in it. When you feel the joy, you’ll get offers of where to work or what to do, and you’ll find a way to create the financial abundance that you want. It will come from loving what you do.

BC: I’m trying to manifest my future work using the Law of Attraction, but I no longer have a clear image of what I want to do, so it’s more difficult for me to do.

Council: And so you can always ask for signs. Let me see something walking down the street, let me see something in a movie, let me hear something. Show me something that would be of interest.

You can even work in a library among books and be the librarian that sits and reads stories to children once a day or twice a week. Anything with children, which is what you wanted, would be fun.

Who Is This Older Man I Experienced A Strong Connection With?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Cretu.

Cretu: Long ago I experienced a very strong connection with a man 29 years older than me. Nothing happened between us. It was a silent knowing, just by looking into each other’s eyes and smiling at each other – a very pure form of bonding.

Council: It was a recognition with someone you’ve been with in other lifetimes.

Cretu: People around us became immediately aware of this energy and my life started to slowly get intoxicated by cruelty and jealousy to the point that years later I became a recluse. One girl went to a fortune teller and asked them to do something bad to me. I never believed in these things, but my life truly went downhill a few years later.

Council: Apparently you do believe that other people can create something bad in your life because no one can do anything bad to you. Many people say they don’t believe in curses or bad things being sent to them, but on a deeper level they do believe it. And so because of this belief, they start seeing things going downhill in their life.

It’s very important for you to know that you’re in charge of your life. If anything is going downhill, if you’re experiencing many challenges and much unhappiness, you are creating this from your thoughts.

The number one thing would be to meditate that you’re in spirit. You come here to the Earth path and you know that you’re in complete control of your life. Anything you’re experiencing, you’re creating it. When your life is uncomfortable, you’re creating it to see, know, and believe you can change it.

Bob: So when Cretu says that she became intoxicated by cruelty and jealousy, she chose to experience the cruelty and jealousy?

Council: Exactly. It was there and it was Cretu’s choice to let it in, but it was your choice on how you’d let this cruelty and jealousy affect you. Could you laugh at it? Can you let it go? Or will it overwhelm you, bring you sadness, and make you nervous? This cruelty and jealousy were experienced by you so you could see how you chose to experience it.

Bob: Any comments on what Cretu says about years later becoming a recluse?

Council: This was all her choice. This was out of fear and out of believing everything is going wrong.

Cretu: When I was in this man’s presence, I used to vibrate with such joy and love that I never felt anywhere else in the world. Just the thought of him would connect me with the source and my higher self. It was magical, and I could tell that it was reciprocated, even though we never told each other it was magical.

Council: This man came into your life to help you to connect with the source. And when you were connected and you knew that feeling was so wonderful, when this person is no longer in your life, it was your experience that would make you try to connect with source and your higher self without this person, and of course you can do that.

Cretu: I’d like to know who and what this person is to me, and who and what I am to him.

Council: You are spirits that have come together before, you have experienced lifetimes together, you learned well together, and you decided to take another crack at this process this time around.

Cretu: I’ve always wondered if there was a past life connection between us.

Council: You’ve come together in past lives as siblings, mothers, and fathers. You’ve switched roles. You’ve been partners before. For many lifetimes you wished to learn the same things, and so you jump in together in different lifetimes to create what you wanted to experience. It’s a wonderful partnership that comes together every now and then, and you’ve chosen this partnership in your current life.

Bob: Any comments on the 29-year age difference between Cretu and this man?

Council: Not at all. This connection was wanted and it was pre-planned that there would be such an age difference. It would just be when their meeting occurred, a recognition, a comfortable feeling, and being elated in the feeling of love because that’s who we truly are. And working together in past lives it was easy to connect to that emotion of who we really are as love and light when we’d be with that person, or even think of that person. It’s still possible.

Cretu: In two different periods of my life I experienced flashbacks from past lives and there’s one scene that’s haunted me forever – the silhouette of a man with a hat and cloak walking at night, and the same man lying with me on the ground in the street as one of us was dying, and promising to each other that our love would have been stronger than death.

It’s not easy to describe what happens to me when I connect with different times. It literally takes me away from the present, and all my soul and mind. I hope I can find answers through The Council.

Council: It’s very important when you had these images to see them and feel them. You can try and find out more about it, like what happened right before that scene in the street, or what happened after it. That’s an experience to connect with the past.

But we tell you that you are here now to focus on the now. It’s important not to keep going back to that past, or to any past. Take a look here and there, but live your life in your present. That’s what you intended to do – create in this lifetime.

Is There An Evil Spirit Around Me And/Or My Children?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sonaliv27.

Sonaliv: Is there a spirit or something around me and/or my children?

Council: There are always spirits around you, and there’s nothing to fear with this. It’s just that you’re one of many who wish to come into this reality and learn to experience more than what’s usual.

You want to experience connections with spirits from other realms, and the spirits there have come to you to help you connect with this. If at any time you feel this is too much for you, or you don’t want this connection, then you can easily ignore this and you won’t create it. There’s no reason for concern that these are what you’d call bad spirits. They’re just here because you wanted this from a spiritual perspective.

When you were in spirit and you were planning your current lifetime, you wanted to come in and then to grow, to experience more, and to be open to new experiences that would help you realize who you are. You wanted to help realize that you’re also a spirit, and you’re so much more than your physical body that you travel around in. That’s why you may feel these spirits around you, but we’d say there’s no reason to be concerned. You’re always in control.

Sonaliv: Is this spirit evil?

Council: This spirit is not evil. There are many spirits that are coming in because they’re part of the agreement to help the ones in the physical to realize there’s so much more. It’s a teacher. It’s here to give you a different experience. You can always go with it, learn from it, and experience it, or take it out of your consciousness. Don’t give it any focus and it will leave.

Sonaliv: How do I make this spirit leave?

Council: Make sure that you truly want this spirit to leave, because you are the creator and you did create having this spirit come into your life for the purpose of learning.

And so we send you all blessings, and all the wonderful thoughts that will help you, the positive thoughts and the feelings that come with them, and the love that’s within you that you can experience at any time you focus on your heart and ask for signs of who you really are. When you do this you’ll experience more joy and more love in your life.

What Was My Past Life In Lemuria Like?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, A Lemurian.

Lemurian: I was told in a past life reading that I was a healer from Lemuria, and I’m a Pleiadian. I was also told I had a twin flame relationship with someone in the Pleiades who lives on Alcyone (a star in the Pleiades). I’d like to find out more about this and what my life was like in Lemuria.

Council: In Lemuria the teachings were about healing, oneness, honoring each other, and meditation. You learned how to use your mind to exist and to create what you needed. There was a peaceful atmosphere and there were always positive thoughts. There were times when you’d get together in groups and meditate in temples. And you taught little children about energy and thoughts.

The healing you performed wasn’t so much physical, but with your mind. When you experienced things that were upsetting or things that caused you to be anxious, you knew in that life how to change this, what to meditate on, and what part of the body to focus on. That’s the healing you did in Lemuria.

Lemurian: What was my family like in Lemuria?

Council: Everyone was family in Lemuria. That’s how they existed. Everyone worked together. Everyone learned from each other and cared for each other. There was the experience of unity and oneness. Have you created that here with your family? With your friends? In Lemuria that brought you great joy.

Coming in at this time in your current lifetime, because of what’s going on, in spirit you chose to come here now and to learn again how to focus, how to be positive, and how to be one with your family and friends.

We suggest that in your meditations or quiet time, you go with the elements of nature. That would feel familiar to you. Go within your heart and find that peaceful feeling that you had in Lemuria. It’s there. When you find it and you experience that oneness, that feeling of love for everyone that you’ve created in your life, you wanted to share that feeling and show it, not so much in what you say, but in how you treat yourself and others.

Lemurian: Can I meet my twin flame in my next lifetime, and what was he like?

Council: Your twin flame can be met in your next lifetime if that’s what you want. And because you’re in the midst of creating it, you’ll pick the way you meet, how important that person is in your life, if that person stays with you, or if that person comes into your life only for a while. Will this person turn out to be a parent or a teacher, or a friend? You’ll create that.

You can begin now by thinking about how you’ll want the relationship to be. With your thoughts, see how your meeting will be and live it now. Go into those thoughts and experience them and feel them as if you’re living them now, and you’ll draw them to you.

But wanting to meet this twin soul will come about if, when you create that life, you want that to be. You may want that now instead of in the next life. It’s all up to you.

Lemurian: Can The Council give me any information regarding this twin flame?

Council: Take that feeling of being positive, and no matter what you face and what you experience, when you focus on these feelings, you’ll bring them to you now and your life will improve. The feelings within you will exist with more happiness with what you create. Take all of that and use it in this lifetime. And when others see your attitude becoming gentle and having an acceptance of everything that happens, that’s how you’ll teach others in your current lifetime.

We send you all blessings, and all the wonderful thoughts that would help you, and the positive thoughts and the feelings that come with them. We send you the love that’s within you that you can experience at any time when you focus on your heart and ask for signs of who you really are. And when you do this, you’ll experience more joy and more love in your life.

Will My Children Ever Feel Good In School?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kati.

Kati: Dear Council, please help. Will my children ever feel good at school? My 10-year-old struggles academically due to attention issues, but does great socially, though the environment is lively and distracting, which doesn’t help his attention issues.

Council: First we’ll like to say this child is an Indigo child, and the attention problem the school would see is because he’s very curious and will get bored easily. Subconsciously the Indigo children know they have great things to do and to change when they are here. That’s what’s going on with that child right now.

This is nothing to worry about. Don’t fall into the system’s way of thinking there’s something wrong with him. Indigo children learn at their own pace. They make friends when they’re ready. They’ll search for the right kind of people, they’ll search for the right kind of information, and they don’t want to waste their time. This is part of what an Indigo child goes through.

There’s no need to worry here. You’ll see by watching this child what motivates him, what his interests are, and how he works through his problems.

Kati: My 8-year-old struggles socially, hasn’t made a good friend in school in three years, hates going to school, but does great academically.

Council: Do you see the opposites with these two souls? They’ve agreed to come in and they know each other from one or more previous lives. They’d be examples to each other so that one would learn from the other, and learn how to balance themselves out. It’s a wonderful path they’ve chosen to come on.

There’s a learning process for you, but they’re here to definitely help each other to be examples. As they get older they’ll figure out what they want. There could be a time when one is jealous of the other, but that’s fine. The relationship will evolve. They’re here to be examples and to help each other in their current reality.

Kati: We are considering switching schools to a small private religious school, though we’re not of that faith, or homeschooling, but those are upheavals as well. Is it worth the financial strain to send them to private school?

Council: No, not at all. They’ll still have their issues to face. And why disturb what they’re going through now, where they’d have to start again with the feelings, and being bored, or not having friends. It’s to your children’s benefit that you do not change their schooling habits and where they learn.

Kati: Would my children be happy doing homeschooling?

Council: That wouldn’t help either.

Kati: In addition to feeling like we’re constantly struggling with their individual school issues…

Council: And that’s understood, but just sit back and watch, and encourage them in any way you can.

Most of all it’s important that your children feel accepted no matter how they are, and to feel loved by you. Show your children love. Show your children acceptance. These are tools that will help them grow.

Kati: Mass shootings in the news make me fear that school is no longer a safe place for kids.

Council: And at this point it isn’t safe. But in your current reality, all of this is happening because a great change is wanted. All the souls here have allowed this to come in to learn from it and take their power. And parents, as well as all adults, have a lot of power that they’re looking to find right now, and to change the circumstances into the kind of world that’s wanted.

Every single soul that’s in this reality at this time came in to find out whatever the problem is, and to face these problems in large groups, or individually, and to change these problems and bring love into every situation.

But we do understand your fear. Meditate on things being wonderful. Meditate on how you’d like things to be. See that in your mind. Focus on that.

You’ll find that thoughts are very powerful. Stay in the positive.

Kati: The whole topic of school feels so intense and it’s been a struggle for four years. Do you have any insights as to why we’ve struggled so much, and if there’s a better option for our family? I don’t want to live in fear anymore, and I don’t want to be weary of the subject of school anymore.

Council: As crazy as this may sound, you did choose to experience fear, and so did everyone else in your current reality. Either you fall victim to this fear, or you use your mind and your energy to not accept this fear.

Now focus on what you want. When you focus, the vibration changes, and then everything around you changes. That’s how your current reality works.

Do the work. Go inward. Focus. Visualize, and you’ll see the change begin.

Was My Recent Abortion A Soul Agreement Between Me And My Child?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, ACuriousSpirit.

ACuriousSpirit: I had an abortion recently and it’s not something I really wanted to do, and I’m still deeply sad about it. I’d like to ask The Council if this abortion was a soul agreement between me and the child.

Council: Of course it was.  There’s no reason to feel sad, or regret what was done, or feel guilty. It was your wish to experience this abortion and afterward to feel love for yourself because this was something you did.

It’s important for you to understand that the child’s soul also wanted to experience the abortion for its own reasons. You both helped each other out. There’s great love there. As you understand that and feel love for yourself, this love will grow. At another time you’ll have children if you want to.

ACS: Will I be reunited again with the soul of this child?

Council: At this time this particular soul doesn’t feel it needs to come back to you. It feels like it will move on. You have other souls in line, so to speak, that are willing to come to you when you’re ready for children. You’ll be reunited when you’re both back in spirit, but not in your current life.

ACS: How can I best deal with the sadness and move on with my life.

Council: Forget the sadness and know that you may not understand in your current reality why you chose to experience this abortion. How wonderful that the loving soul of this child said, “I will be this child. I will come to you and you’ll get pregnant, and then when the time is right, you’ll abort me.”

That soul had such great love for you that it did what you needed because you wanted to experience this abortion. Learn from this experience. Learn all about love. You can still be connected to the spirit of this child, and send love to this spirit, and thank it for helping you experience this abortion. And you allowed this spirit to learn what it needed by having the abortion and letting that spirit learn the lesson it wanted from that experience.

There’s only love here, only a great love that brought you two together to experience this abortion. There’s no sadness, there’s no guilt. You fulfilled a contract, so to speak. You fulfilled an agreement. You came together out of love to help each other. When you’re back in spirit, and perhaps when you plan another life, you can be together again. There’s only love here.

ACS: I’d also like to know why the father of this child rejected us and if this was also a soul agreement between me and him.

Council: Of course this was another soul agreement between you and the father. You would have to learn about abandonment, you’d have to learn to feel great love for yourself, and not feel unimportant or that there’s something wrong with you because this man left you.

The soul of this man will learn how it feels to leave someone. Perhaps that soul wants to learn about regret. Perhaps it wants to learn about how wonderful and free it feels not to be tied to a family. This person will learn what he needs to learn by leaving you, but it’s all done out of love. You decided to have this experience with the father so that he could learn from it and you could learn from it.

Concentrate on yourself. Find the loving things within yourself. Focus on that. And when you meditate, or you sit quietly, thank these souls for playing their part in your abortion experience. And jokingly say, “Maybe we’ll do this again and we’ll have a different ending, or a different lesson.”

That’s all that’s meant at this time.

How Can I Support Myself And Find An Inexpensive Apartment?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who’s looking for their advice.

Anon: The past two decades have been difficult. I found it difficult to get work and somewhere to live. I originally wanted to be a musician, and I’ve been trying to teach and write to create a secure foundation from which I could make music my main source of income. But the foundation and the music career never came.

Council: Your interest in music comes from another lifetime. It was something you enjoyed, but you didn’t plan in this lifetime to make music your source of income. It was supposed to be a hobby and something you did on the side that you enjoyed. But somehow, unconsciously, the memories are there of how much you enjoyed it before, and so liking that feeling you stayed with it. This particular lifetime we think music isn’t the path you’re ready to go on at this moment.

Anon: The way my work is done changed after the 2008 financial crisis and I find myself doing an awful lot of unpaid work, applying for jobs, funding, gigs, practicing, self-promoting, and doing the mandatory unpaid work that comes with self-employment.

Council: That’s fine if you enjoy doing unpaid work. If not, what else have you done to provide for yourself? What sort of work have you come up with to support your style of living, to be comfortable with where you are and who you’re with, and a way to enjoy what you’re doing? Have you looked in these other areas?

Anon: Renting has been unstable and I’ve lived in 13 places over the last 20 years. At one point I got ill, was made homeless, and ended up in subsidized housing. I have no family or partner, This has been the most security and stability I’ve ever had and I’ve been so grateful.

Council: Abandonment is part of your lesson. And again we ask you, what are you doing to provide for yourself now, moving around so much and seeing how the music work isn’t supporting you? What are you looking towards?

Anon: It’s been wonderful living here. Sadly the building is being demolished and I’ll get notice to move out soon.

Council: Do you realize you are the creator. Look how you’re creating your life differently from what you desire. Instead of creating going into music, you’re creating that you’re losing places where you live and you’re doing unpaid work. You’re creating it this way to get you to turn towards anything else because it will feed into your having confidence in yourself no matter what you do. This is also part of what you’re trying to learn.

Try anything. You’ll find you enjoy learning something new. You’re creating a way where the music isn’t working for you right now. You must learn to go in another direction. What is it that you love? What is it that would be easy for you to do to support yourself? We ask you to ask yourself these questions.

Anon: I’ve tried to increase my job search to earn enough money to rent an apartment locally like the one I currently live in, but I had to leave one job because I was physically attacked, and I was bullied out of another job.

Council: Again, look at what you’re creating.

Anon: I should be putting in as many job applications as I can to insure my security, but I’m drained and I can’t face doing anymore unpaid work.

Council: Again, look at what you’re creating. You know you should be increasing your job research, but you’re drained. And you’ll stay getting drained until you look in another direction. All the signs are there for you. You’re on Earth to have fun, to create different parts of your life, but you’re holding so tightly onto the subconscious memories you had from a time before where you were able to live by your music.

You wanted to come in and experience joy with your music, but also to learn so much more about yourself. Trust yourself. Try something different. And when you become confident in yourself, more and more things will change for you. Things will become easier for you. And this may lead you back to your music, but first you must find the confidence and let go of the fear of trying to support yourself another way.

Anon: Rents have skyrocketed and I’m scared I’ll have to move away from my treasured local support network I spent my adult life cultivating, and the musicians, music, and culture of the city I’ve grown up in and love so much. These are my lifeline.

Council: Once again, that’s why you’re creating your life in a way where you have to let go of this lifeline to see what else is in store for you and to see what you can create, like new friends, a new career, a new place to live. These are beautiful things that await you if you do the mental work first. What else would you like to do?

See yourself doing it, feeling good, feeling relaxed, and increasing the way you live. Let go of the fear. Let go of what’s old. We see you’re making things end because you want to have a new beginning. How exciting this is.

Anon: I love my home so much and I’m already grieving its loss. I’m scared I won’t find something this wonderful, secure, and affordable in this location where I can live on my own.

Council: Did it ever occur to you that you may not have to be in your current location, and that you’re creating your life in such a way that you’ll find a new location?

Anon: I’d love to hear your advice.

Council: Meditate. See what you want. Visualize it. Forget creating with the music for now. You’ll have it later on. See what else you’re capable of doing.

Anon: How can I break out of this cycle?

Council: Meditate. Visualize. Pretend. Find joy in doing anything else. Be like a young child that has dreams of becoming a cowboy, or a bull fighter, or anything else. Play with it and you’ll bring something new into your life.

Anon: Can spirit show me what’s next for me in terms of where I’ll be living?

Council: We can’t show you what you’re going to create. It’s all up to you. We’ll see it when you see it.

Anon: How do I find something as wonderful as where I am? How can I stay in my home town without sharing a flat? I’m in my forties now and I don’t think I can do that anymore.

Council: Look for other employment. Start there.

Anon: With the persistent employment and income insecurity taking its toll, I’ve also lost my love of practicing and writing music.

Council: There you go. You’re creating it and you’re seeing it. It’s wonderful that you’re seeing that you lost your love for music. You’re exactly on the path you wish to be on. There’s nothing to be upset about.

What you need to do is flow with your situation. There’s something else. What is it? Call it to yourself. Pretend. Visualize you can do this and you’ll create more joy in your life. You’ll create a career. You’ll create a partner. You’ll create somewhere wonderful to live. See it. See all these things and you’ll find yourself moving closer and closer to that path.

Anon: And I’d love to know how I can get the music back.

Council: Find yourself first. Try something different. Try many different things and your love of music will return. But don’t be afraid to go in different directions.

Are Some Events Pre-Planned In Spirit More Likely To Happen Than Others?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari.

Mari: I’ve read in some books on the afterlife and reincarnation that certain important events in life are pre-planned, with a high probability of happening. For example, marrying a particular person, going to a particular school, having a child, or having certain disabilities. And no matter which way you go, that event will most likely occur. Other events are supposedly pre-planned only as possibilities.

Council: Your higher self always knows what you pre-plan and what you want to experience. There are many times when you’re setting up a new life that you pick souls you worked with and learned with before. You’d choose one as a husband, a wife, a brother, or a mother. There are times you want them in your life for a while, and you’ll set that up, learn what’s needed, and then move on.

There are times when you may make an agreement with a soul where you say, Let’s see how our life goes. Let’s see what I create and what you create, and is it a meeting where we’ll become friends and experience more, or is it just a quick meeting and you move on? By doing it this way you don’t know what you’re going to create, and so you have the ability to go into this relationship with this spirit, or turn and go on another path. There are some relationships where it’s very positive, we know each other before, and let’s do it again. What is it that you want to learn? What is it that I want to learn? We’ll support each other in this. And there are other relationships where you just see how it goes.

The freedom is always yours. Even if you decide to recreate something you set up, your higher self knows if you’re learning what you want to learn, if you’re having a good time, and if you’re achieving what you wanted to achieve. You’ll always be able to pick the direction you go in, even if you don’t consciously know that the choice was yours to do this or to do that and to have this experience.

Bob: So it sounds like you’re agreeing with Mari when she says you can pre-plan an event that has a high probability of happening.

Council: Yes

Bob: And you’re saying even though it does have a high probability of happening, you have the free will to change that.

Council: You always have free will. Every day of your life you can connect with the other spirit, with their higher self and your higher self, and you’ll know this is the way we want it to go. Or let’s not go this way. Let’s change this and change that. You’re always in connection with these other spirits.

Bob: And it sounds like you’re also saying that you can pre-plan possibilities that aren’t necessarily likely or unlikely to happen, and you determine at the time you’re living what you pre-planned in that life whether you want to follow that path or not.

Council: Exactly. The choice is always yours.

Mari: You’ve indicated in many places that you have to believe in something for it to occur.

Bob: Can you comment on that?

Council: You can’t believe in something you don’t remember that you’re creating in spirit. You don’t have to believe it because your higher self and the other person’s higher self will work to make this happen. But if it’s something you want in your life, like a  new job or a new partner, it always helps to believe you want it and it’s coming to you. There are many things you won’t remember that you have planned, but your higher self will take you there. When it’s something you consciously want, it always works much better if you believe you can have it.

Bob: You’re also saying that even if you don’t consciously believe in something, it can still occur.

Council: Yes, it can. Believe in the power of your higher self because it’s you. You’re the only one who’s creating in your reality.

What Can You Tell Me About The Tension In My Husband’s And Son’s Relationship?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, after she read our post, Why Don’t I Have A Good Relationship With My Mother?

Kristi: Great post on family dynamics. This raises a couple questions of my own that I’d like to ask The Council.

My husband and I have a great relationship and we’ve been married 20 years this November. My husband treats me like any woman would ever want to be treated, and I have almost no complaints in this department. I’m so very thankful for him.

We have one child together, a son who’s 18 years old. My husband’s and my son’s relationship is a strained one, unfortunately. My husband sets extremely high standards for our son, which are often unattainable. And even if they were attainable, my husband wouldn’t be happy then either. I feel like my son could wrangle the moon and my husband wouldn’t care.

When standards aren’t met, a child often feels like they’re not good enough and I see this playing out before me. My son is a sweet guy, very smart, and stays out of trouble, but he has low self-esteem.

My husband makes no attempt to foster a close relationship with our son. We all live together in the same house, but my husband and son can go without talking to each other for weeks at a time. And when they do talk to each other, it’s usually my husband telling my son what he hasn’t done properly.

Council: This is so wonderful. We have such advice for you. We see it so clearly.

Your husband and son were husband and son in a previous lifetime. In that lifetime they were wonderful together. Whatever your son did, your husband praised him. Everything was okay and everything went along beautifully.

At the end of that life, your son said to his dying father, “I wish I could have done more. I wish you would have pushed me more so that I could have given you more, and so that I could have become more in this lifetime.”

And so, in the wonderful past life they experienced together, both wished they had done more. Your son wished he’d become more. Your husband wished he didn’t settle for what your son was in that past life, and he wished he did push your son more.

So going back into spirit they asked each other if they wanted to try this again, but this time the son wanted the father to push him. The son wanted to become so much more in the new life they create. Whatever way the father can find to push the son, to get him to do more, to not settle, the son wants the father to do that with him.

That will be our lesson, to become more as a father and be even more proud of his son than he was. And the son wants to be important. He wants to feel that. He doesn’t want to feel there’s so much more he could have done. He wants to know there’s a strong father behind him that won’t let him settle.

And so your husband creates a family where there weren’t good role models for him to follow. He becomes a stern father who, out of love, whether he can admit that or not, isn’t going to settle for what your son does, no matter how good it is. He’ll ignore your son and not give him any confidence or any hurrahs for what he does. And this is your husband’s way of pushing your son to want his father’s attention,  and to want more, and more, and more.

The most wonderful little book for you to read is, The Littlest Soul and the Sun, by Neale Donald Walsch, about two angels. One angel asks the other angel to come back into a new life, and if the first angel does something mean to the second angel, can the second angel still remember the first angel is a soul and forgive him. We suggest you read that book. That’s exactly what’s going on with your husband and your son.

They’re being tough with each other, but underneath they want so much more for each other. Your husband wants to leave this life thinking he was a wonderful father, and he pushed his son so much that, look what his son accomplished. And your son wants to think at the end of this life, my father never complimented me enough, he pushed me and pushed me, but I see it now, it was out of love because look at what I’ve become.

Bob: Is it a good idea for the son or the father to read, The Littlest Soul and the Sun, as well?

Council: They may not be open to it, but I’d leave the book around and see who gets drawn to it first and who reads it. It’s perfect for what’s going on, and it’s the wife’s job not to judge or step in because she can’t fix this. This is between your husband and your son. They’ll find a way. Their lessons and challenges in this reality is to find a way to come back to love. That’s the reason we’re all here, to come back to the state of love.

Bob: Was the father in this life the father in the past life, and the son in this life the son in the past life?

Council: Yes. And so they brought that role into their current life to work it through.

Kristi: I try to step in and talk to my husband about how difficult he’s being, but he doesn’t seem to understand where I’m coming from.

Council: Yes, he doesn’t understand, not at this time.

Kristi: He’s not abusive at all, but he doesn’t offer the love and acceptance a parent should provide.

Council: You provide love and acceptance to your husband and your son for the way they are. Always send them light so they can find a way to work out this challenge they wanted to go through in this lifetime, and they’ll find the path that will bring them to the state of love.

Kristi: My husband’s father was absent most of my husband’s life, so my husband didn’t have the best role model for parenting. Whereas I had the best father in the world and I only want the same thing for my son. I’d love for them to have a better relationship, but I understand this isn’t my battle. I’d love more insight into their dynamic, whether or not this was planned in spirit before coming to this Earthly plane, and why?

Council: It was definitely planned. And their higher selves know why they created this situation, what they’re trying to do, and will take them along their path until they understand and find a way to bring more love into their lives.

Kristi: Do you see my husband’s and son’s relationship getting better with time?

Council: It can always get better, but they are the creators. The best thing you can do is to accept what they create. They can create a change in a year if they want, or it could take 20 years. You must let them go through whatever it is they need to see, understand, and feel, and they’ll find a way.

Kristi: What can I do to help this situation?

Council: Send love, and have fun watching your husband’s and your son’s journey.

Should I Continue My Relationship With My Current Partner?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Lee, who has a follow up question on our post, Why Do I Feel So Drawn To This Man? that we published last month in response to Lee’s earlier questions.

Lee: I feel drawn to a man I recently started dating. The relationship is moving very fast and we’re even talking about marriage.

Council: Is this what you want? It’s all up to you. You can take the relationship and have it move slowly or quickly, but you have to decide if you’re comfortable with it moving quickly.

Lee: I feel very connected and comfortable with this man. It’s as if I’ve known him forever.

Council: How wonderful. You recognize the spirit within this person that you’ve known in other lifetimes. You both agreed in spirit that this person would come into your life. What is it that you want? Where do you see this relationship going?

Lee: I feel very connected to him spiritually, physically, and emotionally, but he comes with a lot of failed relationships and baggage. I’m afraid I may be ignoring red flags and making a mistake.

Council: It’s good to recognize there are red flags. There’s always a problem when you’re getting signs, but you ignore them. By taking your time with this relationship you can see more and more what this person is truly like. There’s no reason to rush. If this relationship is something you both want, you’ll both feel the trust and the love in it to make the relationship happen.

Lee: I’m a recent widow and I feel guilty. I wonder if I’m just vulnerable and lonely, and the relationship isn’t real.

Council: Of course you’re vulnerable and lonely. That’s part of the human condition when we love someone and lose them. There’s no reason to feel guilty. It’s perfectly fine to move on and have another relationship if that’s what you want. But again we tell you, it would be wise to slow this relationship down. If it’s real and something you both want, time won’t change it. You can work towards it.

Lee: I’m also worried about my son’s reaction to the relationship.

Council: This is another reason to take your time. Because this relationship is new, it’s up to you to take a good look at it, see how you feel, check out the red flags, and take time to see what this person is really like before you involve your son. We feel you know that rushing into this relationship isn’t wise. If you do rush into it, you’ll be faced with challenges more quickly than if you take your time.

You might not know the direction to go if you rush. You’ll get exactly where you need to be. Be in the relationship. Experience the good and the bad, and see what it is that you want.

Lee: Should I continue with this relationship or is it infatuation?

Council: Of course it’s infatuation. Should you continue with this relationship? It’s totally up to you. And that’s why we say: Be in it. See what this relationship is. Don’t rush it. Experience this person and see what baggage he has. Why were there failed relationships? All of this will give you clues about what you want to do.

Bob: You say that it’s infatuation, but it sounds like you may not be ascribing a negative connotation to the word.

Council: In infatutuation, people are taken with someone else. They feel so in love and so happy, and that could be the feeling now. But in time you’ll learn about this other person. You’ll learn about yourself and how you handle another person if you see a lot of characteristics you don’t like. It’s good to give the relationship time. It’s something you want to learn from, and that’s why the relationship was created the way it was.

Bob: Earlier in the session you said Lee and her partner have relationships from past lives.

Council: Yes, there were a few connections. We see the coming together now is something they planned in spirit because they worked together in other lifetimes. But there’s no particular lifetime that’s tied into their current life where they need to learn something, complete something, or heal something. It’s just two spirits that like working together.

Why Don’t I Have A Good Relationship With My Mother?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Ilona, who asks about her relationship with her mother.

Ilona: I experienced difficulties that were a great challenge for me from the time I was young. My mother always perceived me negatively and didn’t show me as much love as my two sisters.

Council: You set this experience up yourself in spirit. From the very beginning you wanted to learn the lesson of independence, the lesson of accepting others for who they are, you wanted to learn about boundaries, and you wanted to learn how to let go of things and move your life in the direction you wanted. As a young child you began to have feelings that perhaps you weren’t good enough, feeling you weren’t accepted, and so your path began.

Ilona: I’d like to know why my mother doesn’t need me in her life? Why is she pushing me away? Did I hurt her in any way?

Council: There’s nothing you’ve done to hurt your mother, but in spirit, before you came into this reality, you and your mother set up the kind of relationship you’re having. What feels to you like your mother is pushing you away was an agreement you made with her so that your life would be difficult and you’d have to be stronger. And in finding your strength you’d feel very proud of yourself.

In 2020 my mother had a stroke, and in the first few months I felt like our relationship was getting better. That was until my youngest sister moved in with her. Since then my relationship with my mother has been tested again.

Council: Go back to this time when your mother had her stroke and you thought your relationship was improving. How did you feel about this? How do you remember this time? This is the feeling you’re looking for again, but you set it up so you’d feel this way whether you had your mother’s approval or not. This was a taste to remind you of what you were looking for, and then it was taken away. This was all your choice on a spiritual level.

Ilona: After my youngest sister moved in, my mother doesn’t respond to my messages, and doesn’t want to talk to me when my sister isn’t there. I suspect my sister doesn’t want me to have a nice relationship with my mother and only wants to keep my mother to herself.

Council: Whether this is what your sister wants or not, how do you feel about your relationship with your mother? It’s up to you to make up your mind and go in the direction of what you want to happen. It’s a lot of work to look at this relationship and decide if this is what you want. Is it too difficult? Or can you look at it and learn your lesson and feel good about yourself, whether you have your mother’s or your sister’s approval or closeness with them.

What can you find about yourself that makes you feel good? Is it somewhere else in a different relationship? Can you accept what your mother and sister do,  send them love, and let go? If you can’t send love, can you just let go? Because what you’re looking for isn’t to be found in this relationship. This relationship is to get you to look more at yourself, to find out about yourself and the kind of person you are, what you’ll allow, and what you won’t allow. It’s about boundaries. The bottom line is you’re supposed to learn about yourself, love yourself, and feel good about what you accept, and what you don’t accept.

We’re not sent to Earth to suffer and feel horrible. We’re sent here to look at these lessons and to find a way of dealing with them, whether letting it go to make you feel good, or whether it’s pushing forward to see what you can do. When you realize you can’t change another person, can you accept them for who they are? See them and speak to them when you feel like it, or completely walk away. These are all decisions you wish to make. You wish to take your life in the direction you find more comfortable and more loving for yourself.

Ilona: Why is my youngest sister so manipulative?

Council: It’s the part she chose to play and that you both set up and agreed to in spirit. So if she’s manipulative, do you want this in your life? Do you wish to fight against this? Or can you accept your sister for who she is and know that she has her own lessons to learn from this kind of behavior? And then not focus on how manipulative she is, but how – now that you see it – that’s something you don’t want around you, and move forward appropriately.

Ilona: What can I do to improve my relationship with my mother?

Council: Always send your mother and your sister the energy of love, whether you understand them or not. And decide to be there for them when they want you to be there, or completely let go. You must make the decision. Remember you can’t change another person. You can accept them for what they’re doing because you don’t know what they’re trying to learn in their reality. Focus on yourself and what you want, and move in that direction.

Ilona: Is there any hope for me?

Council: There’s always hope. On an energetic level you can picture them changing. Picture them calling you. Picture them asking you to meet with them. You must do the work on an energetic level first. You can do this if it’s what you want, but you first have to decide what you want. Work energetically with them and you’ll see the change begin to happen. There’s nothing you can do physically in your reality to get them to change. You can see the change happen when you constantly focus on how you want your life to be.

Ilona: Is there anything I should know right now?

Council: The most important thing is to concentrate on yourself. See how your relationship with your mother and sister is going. Decide what you want. Do you want a relationship? Do you not want it? Then work energetically. Even if you decide it’s not what you want, picture your relationship going in different ways, but happily. Imagine they’re happy without you in their lives and you’re happy without them in your life. Always come from a place of love, letting go, and everyone feeling the happiness and joy that’s intended when you learn lessons.


Listen to the entire 9-minute audio recording (we apologize for the quality of this recording) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Ilona and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it. You can ask The Council your own question by typing it into one of the Comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages.

I Feel My Marriage Won’t Let Me Move Forward With What I Want

This post answers some follow-up questions for The Council from a reader named, Angie. Angie previously asked The Council some questions which we answered in our post, Why Do I Feel So Drawn To This Man?

Angie: I do have another part to what I’d like to ask regarding my husband, Chris. First, I felt that I needed to get clarification on my connection to Brent (a co-worker – see previous post) as that has been weighing heavily on my mind. Is Brent aware of the kind of connection we share from other lifetimes and that we both pre-planned to come together in our current life to support each other? If not, how can I help him understand?

Council: He’s not aware of anything more than a friendship. If you want him to open up to more than that and question what you both have in this relationship, you’d have to visualize that, but allow him to be who he is. At this time we don’t advise you to push for Brent to be more than a friend. Be a good friend and companion to him. You can talk about things you have in common. You can make that apparent, but his growth and desire to learn more about you must come from him.

Angie: Although my husband and I have remained married for almost 24 years, I haven’t felt we were always aligned with each other. We’ve had our ups and downs, but something was missing between us. I don’t think we ever connected on the level I was looking for in a marriage.

Council: In this connection you’re looking for did you look at your husband from your heart? Did you look for loving things about him even when things are difficult? Do you connect by realizing your husband is also a spirit, and he has his challenges and feelings he needs to work through? Did you connect by appreciating your husband and looking for all the good things in your marriage? When you look for these things, you’ll find them.

Angie: In between our down times, Chris and I had many good years.

Council: That’s wonderful, and it’s good to think about and remember that.

Angie: But when I decided to go back to school, it was the most challenging time. It was challenging because I had to balance taking care of our two sons, focus on my studies, and try to have Chris understand that completing my degree was important to me and will bring success to our family.

Council: Do you know that you created all this and you both agreed to experience this challenge? Did you know you wanted to create this challenge to see if you could handle it so that you’d feel good about yourself? Did your husband agree to this challenge to learn to see you differently, or handle jealousy? There are different reasons this challenge was created, but because you both went through this, it’s something you both want to learn from.

Angie: The extra challenge was how Chris seemed upset with me for what I felt was being focused on my education. After all my hard work during a semester and taking my final exam one weekend, Chris accused me of being with someone else. It was the most hurtful thing to hear him say. There were other moments where I had to tell him I would continue to reach for my goals with or without him.

After I graduated and had a full-time job lined up, things smoothed out. Chris was happier and I thought I’d be happier along side him. I was happy for the next couple years. By this time both our sons were attending college and I was paying their tuition and room and board.

Council: We’d ask you to review what was going on that you were happy for a couple years. Take a good look at that and see what you created and what you went through. What was Chris going through?

Angie: I was able to provide my sons with financial support mostly because we didn’t have a mortgage. Things were going well for us. Chris and I decided to look into buying a new house, but it didn’t work out. I felt is wasn’t the right time. He kept pushing for us to buy a house. I still felt it wasn’t the right time and I explained to him, I’m paying quite a bit in tuition for our boys, including my own expenses and tuition loans. I wasn’t going to take on extra expenses that would come with buying a home. Instead of receiving his understanding, he reacted with a threat of divorce.

Council: In that do you realize you learned to make a boundary, and what you wanted to experience, and what you didn’t want to experience. Look at how you’ve grown, and how you were clear with what you wanted, and you were able to voice it.

Angie: Chris threatened divorce one other time. This was the turning point for me to focus on myself even more. I’m left wondering if our coming together was to have our children and provide for them up to the time they’d begin to create their own lives.

Council: That was part of what your lives are about.

Angie: I know I’ve had a lot of personal growth and I’ve noticed my husband seems to be stuck in the same place and not moving towards his goals as much. This has made it feel like we’re growing apart. Has our marriage run it’s course?

Council: It’s only run it’s course if you decide that’s what you want. If It’s what you want, you’ll create it to go in that direction. It’s really all up to you. That’s one of the great understandings we all need to learn when we create a reality. It’s all up to you.

Angie: I feel the urge to move forward with what I want and I don’t think I’ll be able to fully do this while I’m married to Chris. I do love and care for him very much, but I want to go toward what’s fulfilling and brings happiness.

Council: Meditate on this. Picture yourself going forward with your husband and picture your life without him. What feels better? You’ll always know by how it feels. Do you wish to stay in this marriage and work out the problems? Is this something you wish to create and grow from? Or is it time that you wish to be on your own?

There isn’t any wrong answer. You’ll experience what you need to experience. Your higher self, which is you, is in control and well aware of what you want to create in this life. The best thing is to remain calm, meditate, and visualize what you want.

And so we wish you all love, and light, and happiness, and gratitude on your path. Be supportive of one another and love yourself, as well as others in your life. And remember every single day, you’re all spirits in a physical body, and you’ll create whatever you focus on. Even if you focus on something negative, you’ll create that. We urge you to have positive thoughts, laugh as much as you can, have fun, remember the wonderful and happy memories, and stay in the positive.

Will I Find A Partner To Love And Who Loves Me?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, In This Lifetime, who read our post, Can Your Desire for Something Create It in Your Life? She says: I learned from this post there could be different experiences going on for myself that I came to this world to have. And she asks: What experiences is it that I’m here to have and learn from?

Council: You very much wanted to be independent. You wanted to be a creative person. You wanted to learn about your spiritual path. You wanted a family with the right person that would be there for you. But most of all you wanted to learn to be independent. You wanted to feel confident in your intelligence, how you tuned into different people, and how you treated people. Then you wanted to recognize how people treated you. It was these characteristics you wanted to learn about in yourself and in other people.

Lifetime: A counselor who can hear spirit led me to believe I came into this world to break free from a controlling and narcissistic husband who I shared many lifetimes where I was unable to break free successfully.

Council: You created these lives and that would be a big part of learning to be independent. If you feel you created this person and wanted to break free, there’s your challenge of independence.

Lifetime: I ended the marriage six years ago, have taken many years to let go, reconsider my beliefs, and relocate across the country.

Council: There you are. You’re on the right path.

Lifetime: Yet am I able to experience a committed partner in this lifetime who I can love as fully as I know I’m capable, and who can and will love me deeply?

Council: You’ve pre-planned this meeting also. Keep focusing on independence, keep focusing on feeling good about yourself, and know that everything you want, you will create.

Lifetime: I carry the herpes virus and although it hasn’t been active for a long time, I feel this is shameful and limits my opportunities for love.

Council: We suggest you let go of this shame and know you also created this.  Even though you’ve had herpes, this touches on your challenge of making you focus on the fact that no matter what’s in your life, you deserve love and you’re a wonderful person. Always make sure you’re kind. You wanted to bring out compassion and kindness in this lifetime.

Lifetime: Many people say my ex-husband didn’t treat me well and I’m worthy of being treated so much better. I haven’t found love with a partner, but I’ve reconnected with things about myself that I lost in my marriage. Will I find happiness in this lifetime?

Council: If you believe you deserve a partner who loves you, you can create this. There’s no question that you can have a good partner and happiness in your life, but you must believe you deserve this.

Lifetime: Or is this a lifetime of independence and finding love in myself, but not the pleasures of a shared life with a partner, as I had hoped would eventually happen after leaving my abusive marriage?

Council: You’ll find this person when you believe you deserve this relationship, when you love yourself, and are proud of yourself and what you’ve accomplished. Then you’ll bring in the right person for you.

Lifetime: Please let me know what my intention was for my current lifetime.

Council: Your intentions were independence, feeling good about yourself, creating what you want, and learning more on your spiritual path.

If you don’t meditate now, learn how to meditate. Stay with good thoughts. You wanted to be kind to others as well as yourself. When you do all these things you’ll be on the right path for you, for what you wanted to experience in this lifetime. Work on loving yourself first and you’ll attract the partner you’re looking for.

Why Do I Feel So Drawn to This Man?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Angie, who asks: Why do I feel so drawn to this man? I’ve been married for almost 24 years. For the last 10 years I’ve experienced a lot of personal growth educationally, careerwise, and how I take care of myself, but I’ve always been focused on my husband. One of my goals was to go back and finish my college degree. When I finally decided to do this, I knew it was the right time. Several years before I graduated I learned that this company opened an innovation center near where I live. The moment I saw the office building I knew I was going to work there.

Council: So you’re very in tune with your feelings, and following them always keeps you on the right path.

Angie: In my last year in college I applied for a job only at this company and they hired me. I started in June 2016. In August 2017 my company sent me to Michigan where I was introduced to our Development Team. There was this one individual on the team I became curious about and I wanted to know more about him. He wasn’t on my project and I didn’t talk to him. His name is, Brent, and he had my attention. I went back home and didn’t think much about him. Later I’d hear co-workers talking about Brent and I was all ears and wanted to know what they had to say about him. Why would I want to know about someone who’s 1,400 miles away and that I didn’t have a conversation with?

Council: Because you’re very in tune with your feelings, but at the time you didn’t understand why you felt that way. Your strong feelings are just your higher self telling you that you know Brent. Why would you be so interested in this person? You never met him before. It’s the familiar feeling you have and all the joy you had together with Brent in other lifetimes.

Angie: I did contact Brent for work-related questions, but that was the extent of our conversations. In 2018 I was assigned to a project that Brent was also assigned to. I only worked with him temporarily, and when we spoke it was only about the project. After a while I was moved to another project, so I didn’t speak with Brent too much after that. By 2019 I decided to focus more on myself. My husband has this pattern of saying things to me that don’t feel good. Some of his actions weren’t so good either. I felt it was time to redirect my focus towards what I need to do for myself and not worry about my husband as much. I decided to plan more time with my friends and do things I enjoy.

Later that year I got to work with Brent again. We were able to work together more than last time, which let us talk more. We started to get to know each other and we clicked. We realized how much we had in common. I started to feel like Brent was special to me. I wanted to know more about him, and I just wanted to continue talking with him. Was it meant for us to be put in each other’s paths?

Council: This was pre-planned.

Angie: I definitely looked forward to talking to him every time I was at work. He had me laughing, and the feeling was something I hadn’t had in a long time. All I wanted was to be with him and I couldn’t understand why. I was so drawn to him. I’ve never felt this way with anyone before. As we were getting to know each other I noticed there were many parallels with our lives. We were just on different timelines, and then we eventually caught up to each other.

Now it’s 2022 and I’ve been trying to understand my connection with Brent and all the emotions that come with this. I try not to talk to him, try not to want to be near him, and I feel I’m being torn apart. I definitely felt it in the middle of my chest. It’s become a regular feeling, even when I’m trying to complete tasks for work.

Council: So feeling uncomfortable here only tells you that you had pre-planned together to come into each other’s life to support each other and make life happy, especially if one or both of you were having problems in your personal life. It was a feeling of: Let’s get together. We’ll enjoy the time we spend together and we’d bring joy into each other’s lives. That’s what you’re feeling. That’s what you wanted. Yet now you’re trying not to speak with Brent. It would give you disturbing feelings because you’re not following what you wanted.

Angie: How can someone have such an effect on another person when all they’ve done is talk through work or on the phone?

Council: In other lifetimes you and Brent were married quite a few times. You were cousins in one lifetime. In one lifetime Brent was your teacher. You and Brent have a lot of time together. Because you had a lot of fun and happiness in other lifetimes, you thought you’d pop into each other’s life this time.

Angie: I want to try and understand the purpose of our relationship and what it means to have Brent in my life.

Council: You brought Brent into your life just to experience joy and just to have a good time when you’re together. That’s all that’s really necessary if that’s what you pre-planned. It would be good for you to appreciate that. Appreciate all the times you get together. Just flow with this and see what you create from that.

Angie: I truly feel that Brent and I were meant to meet since I’ve now taken on a more spiritual path and I’m learning to be more present. If this is true, I just want to make sure I approach the situation appropriately and in the best way possible.

Council: It’s true that you did plan to meet. You planned to have a supportive relationship, to learn about each other, to help each other at work, and then personally. Just let this grow. That’s the way the two of you planned it, to come into each other’s life to see where you were at that time in your lives, and to take it from there. We say just enjoy this.

Bob: Angie doesn’t specifically ask about her relationship with her husband, but I’m wondering if you have any comments on that relationship.

Council: Not unless Angie asks. We’d say here for you, Bob, we answered the questions that Angie wrote, and even though you may be curious, or think Angie may want to know more, we’ll follow what she asks.

A Past Life in a Concentration Camp to Experience Inmates’ Feelings

This post answers follow-up questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari, who previously asked The Council some questions. We published the post, Have My Past Lives Influenced My Suffering in My Current Life? in response to those earlier questions. Mari says, In that previous post you said I was Polish and in a German concentration camp during World War II, and I wanted to experience the camp inmates’ feelings on a personal level. I would assume the inmates primary feeling would be fear, but I don’t feel fear.

The Council asks Mari if she thinks fear is the only thing they felt. They would feel hopeless, depressed, hurt, and some would want to give up on life altogether. There are so many different feelings, and fear would be part of it, but it may not be something you’re picking up on right now.

Think of being in one of these concentration camps. What would you face every day? Would you try and have hope? Would you have a good day every now and then? Would it just be a life of complete horror with no hope, no wish to go on, and no belief you can change this? There were many feelings you had in that lifetime.

Mari says, I only feel sadness, stuck, lonely, mostly hopeless, self-pity, and self-doubt. The Council says all of these feelings you’ve mentioned, don’t you believe that is also what these people in the camps went through? They have gone through every one of those feelings at one time or another.

Mari says, I’ve been actually trying to follow Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book, Breaking The Habit Of Being Yourself: How To Lose Your Mind And Create A New One. I haven’t gotten to the main part of the book because it takes so much time, but I’m meditating up to that point. I also read most of the spiritual books. You said I should have hope like I did in my lifetime in the concentration camp, but did my life get better, or did that hope do nothing?

The Council says your hope in that lifetime changed your feelings a little bit, but what you have to realize is that in your current lifetime, what you wanted was to understand those feelings from that past lifetime. You wanted to wonder about it,  think about it, read about it, and then try to picture what it would have been like for you and what you would have wanted.

We’re not trying to break the habit of being you. Being you is the result of all the lives you’ve lived. Each life makes you stronger. Each life you learn lessons from. Ask yourself if you repeated these lessons, or did you learn from them and not have to repeat them. You’re a wonderful spirit that has come back to Earth time and time again and learned, brought goodness, brought hope, and brought love in. That is what you wanted to do in your current lifetime. You planned to learn about these feelings and see if you can be grateful you went through that experience. Pat yourself on the back that you came into your current life to go through some of those feelings again, to learn about them, and to always bring love into them.

Mari says, I also have a hypothetical question. If I were to escape my current lifetime, would I have to repeat the same lessons or not, since I chose to have this lesson learning experience? The Council says you would not have to repeat these lessons. There’s no one that will force you to repeat them, but you’d still want to learn them. You might pick a different way to learn them rather than hearing about it and imagining it. You will only go through these lessons again if you wish to go through them. No one will force you to go into them. You can find another way to learn everything you want to learn.

The Council closes by sending everyone love, and light, and energy, and happiness. We wish you all to feel we are here to help you, whether we speak with you, or we are just here sending you light. That’s what we’re all about. We’re about supporting each other and helping each other understand what lessons you’ve picked in your current lifetime. We’re here to give you some guidance to keep you on your path, show you how to experience it, and change the way it is because that’s what you’ve planned.


Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Mari and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it. You can also ask The Council your own question by typing it into one of the Comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages.

Forgiveness Is Your Issue, Not Abandonment

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eleanor, whose questions follow-up on our post, Is My Current Relationship With My Soul-Contracted Life Partner? which we published in response to her earlier question. Eleanor says, I’d specifically like to know more about abandonment, as I don’t feel I’ve really moved forward with this issue.

Ever since I received your guidance in that earlier post, I’ve seen just how many abandonments I’ve experienced, both in my love life and at work. I’ve had everything from colleagues taking my ideas and becoming rich and famous, to more recently a colleague in a project I run ghosting me and the work. They’re the fourth person to leave this project. Love-wise it’s been similar, from infidelity and abuse, to lovers putting deposits on homes with me and then disappearing. I’d like to know why this abandonment has been a running theme in my life.

The Council says, You may not believe this, but your issue was not only abandonment. Your issue is abuse, feeling hurt, feeling heartbroken, and feeling alone. These are some of the feelings you brought up, because what you wanted to learn about was forgiveness.

A good thing for you to do is to go back and think of everything that made you feel abandoned, heartbroken, and abused. Ask yourself how you feel about these people who were involved. Can you do the work that’s needed now of forgiving these people? Read Pat Rodegast’s book, Emmanuel, which has a section on forgiveness. That may help you.

But the real work is not to just concentrate on abandonment. Focus on all these things that make you feel alone. When you learn to forgive, and this is a big chunk that you wanted to work on in this lifetime, take each issue and ask yourself how you feel about the people involved? What do I think they did to me? How did they make me feel? Can I get to a place of love and release this hurt? Can I forgive them, because when they treated me this way, they were going through their own challenges? And all these people agreed with me in spirit to work out this issue of abandonment with me.

Forgiveness is a big subject. It can go back to your parents, your grandparents, your siblings, schoolmates, work colleagues, friends, family, and lovers, to name a few. There’s a lot you wanted to cover because your main issue was that you wanted to learn how to forgive. And then learn how to forgive yourself for feeling the way you did about each person, being angry with them, or surprised and shocked. And the grief and anger you store in your body, can you let go of it?

Know that you’ve planned to work through this issue of forgiveness in spirit and everyone involved has agreed to this with you. You’re exactly where you want to be. Forgiveness is a big challenge. It’s always easier to start looking at someone else and how they treated you. When you can learn to forgive them, then the harder part is learning to look at yourself.

How do you forgive yourself? How did you allow this to happen? Why didn’t you speak up for yourself? Why didn’t you leave a relationship earlier? Why did you allow people to treat you like that? When you did allow this, you didn’t love yourself. We’re all here to take every challenge we have and bring love into it. You can do this. It will take a lot of work and really wanting to look at the issue of forgiving yourself. Know you set this up when you were in spirit.

Eleanor asks, Does this have something to do with past lives I’ve had, and my abusive and neglectful upbringing? The Council says it’s not just about past lives. There were lots of past lives where you were hurt and went through abandonment or love issues. But there were also many good lives. It’s not so much about what life this desire for forgiveness came from? It’s more like you asked in spirit what challenge you wanted to work on in this lifetime, and you came up with forgiveness.

As far as your abusive and neglectful upbringing is concerned, that was also planned in spirit. The feelings of not feeling good about yourself, being abused, and not being treated right started very early. This is what you set up in spirit.

Eleanor says, Is this something I chose to change in this lifetime. The Council says, Of course. You didn’t want to just go through this lifetime and experience this need for forgiveness and feel horrible without changing it and without learning to love yourself and others. We’re all here to help each other. Of course you wanted to change this.

Eleanor says, I’d also like to know what I need to do to heal this pattern, as I’ve always wanted to have a permanent life partner and the same colleagues to go forward with work-wise. The Council says if you do this work as we explained it, there’s definitely a partner out there for you, but you must start this work.

Eleanor says, I’m also wondering if I do this work, will I be able to reattract this colleague who’s just left, and also my ex-boyfriend. Or is it that in healing this pattern I grow beyond this particular colleague and ex, and attract a new (what I hope is) permanent colleague and boyfriend?

The Council says you’ll understand the answer to this question after you do some of this inner work. You can decide if you want to bring these people back into your life. And of course you can if you want to. But then you might get to a point and decide you want more. You want something new and you’ll create that. You are the creator of your life and you can have it go in any direction you want. But you must do the work because you wanted to do this so badly this lifetime. To work on forgiveness for one issue is a lot, but to pick so many issues is even bigger. If you can get to forgiving one or two people, you’ll know how to do it and the rest will come easily.

The Council closes by sending everyone love, light, energy, and happiness. We wish you all feel that we’re here to help all of you, whether we speak with you, or we’re just here sending you light. That’s what we’re all about. We’re about supporting each other and helping each other understand what you’ve picked in this lifetime, and how to give you some guidance to keep you on your path, and show you how to experience it and change the way it is, because that’s what you planned.

What’s Blocking Me From Attracting A Romantic Partner Into My Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eden, who asks, What is blocking me from attracting a romantic partner into my life? I’ve been single for years now and I’ve done a lot of work on myself during this time in order to welcome in a partner to enhance my life. However, I’m still not attracting in the right person. I feel as though I might have an unconscious block or a limiting belief, which is stopping me from attracting the right person. Could you please shed some light on this?

The Council says in one particular lifetime in the early 1800s you were a wife in a very lovely marriage with children. But your husband died unexpectedly and left you broken-hearted for this whole lifetime. You became a totally different person, sad and obsessed. You always wished your partner was still there.

In your current lifetime, subconsciously the fear is there that if you find the perfect partner, the relationship would end prematurely in your partner transitioning to spirit. That’s the belief that comes into your current lifetime. That’s the belief you wanted to work on and heal.

We ask you to not only visualize what you’ve lost now that you have this information, but think about how wonderful your relationship was. Meditate on this and ask for information about your marriage. How do you think your life would have been with a husband and children? Bring that relationship into your current lifetime. It was beautiful and it ended early, but that was then. Now you can have another beautiful relationship and it will last your entire lifetime.

There’s the belief of worry, and fear of being abandoned again that’s stopping you from pulling in someone who you want to have a relationship with.

We can tell you that in spirit you planned to have a relationship in your current lifetime with the spirit of the husband you lost in the lifetime we mentioned. It’s there for you. We suggest you concentrate on the joy that you’ll have the opportunity to be together again, and have another lifetime together, and create as you both go along.

Stop worrying about not finding the perfect person, what is wrong, and what’s blocking you. You now have the answer to those questions. But you also know now that in spirit you and your husband from a past lifetime have both agreed you’ll come together to have another great relationship, to live out another wonderful life. We wish you well on this. Meditate on it and feel the happiness and excitement that you’ll meet this person again.

Eden closes by asking, Is there a partner out there for me with whom I can create a beautiful and fulfilling relationship, which is really what my heart yearns for? The Council says this relationship is there for you. Now create it.

What Can My Family Do To Help My Brother Overcome Drug Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, PE, who says, I recently found out my younger brother has been abusing drugs. What can my family do to help him overcome this addiction?

The Council says #1, don’t blame him or be angry with him for this addiction. This is something he chose to go through. Be supportive in every way you can. Make suggestions on what he can do, and then leave it up to him to follow them. When your brother gets tired of being in this situation, he’ll change. We see he’s planned in this life to have this drug experience, but also to overcome it.

There are lessons for all concerned. There are lessons for you, your family, and your brother on going through this, how to handle it, and how to have patience, love, and understanding. Stay away from blame and anger. Be supportive and suggest any kind of help you can find. Part of the lesson is finding help and letting go. Your brother must find his way out of this addiction.

While this addiction is going on, constantly ask yourself, How do I feel? What would I do if it was me? How can I understand this? What would I want? When you have these questions answered, you’ll know how to move forward in this situation. Above all, have patience and compassion.

PE asks, Is there a purpose for this drug addiction? The Council says: Yes, there is a purpose. Your brother chose to experience drug addiction to go through it, and to feel what it would be like. He chose it to feel how strong he’d be when he finds a way out of this addiction. He chose it to see how the spirits around him, including you and your family, would respond to him when he’s in his addiction and when he gets better.

There is a purpose. Your brother wants to go through this addiction to learn. Everyone concerned agreed to go through this experience to learn. Search your feelings to see how you’ll respond to him.

When you come into this reality your purpose is to take every situation and change it with love. That’s your answer to your question about the purpose of your brother’s addiction.

The Councils says they send everyone blessings, love, and happiness. And we ask you all to search for joy and find it any way you can, every day.


Listen to the entire 4-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it. If you’d like to ask The Council your own question, you can type it into one of the Comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages and we’ll answer it as soon as we can.

What Can You Tell Me About Loki Energy?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, LadyInLife, who says, Everything in my life is changing. I have a new relationship, I have a new job, my car suddenly died for good, and I’m moving into a new home. It feels a little chaotic and exciting, though there’s a lot of pressure for me to succeed.

The Council asks where this pressure is coming from? You will succeed, and you’ll go at your own speed with your own ability to take what you learn and put it to use. Any pressure to succeed should be totally ignored. You should look at your own doubt about yourself, or if you’ll succeed. Just think lightly of having fun along the way. You’re exactly where you need to be at this point.

LadyInLife says, A palm reader recently told me I’ve got a lot of Loki energy around me. Can you tell me more about Loki, his energy, and how I can best work with this energy and honor it? The Council says in mythology the Norse god, Loki, was known to be a great manipulator of energy and people. He was able to change shapes into whatever he wanted.

Learning about Loki is about learning to increase your energy. But when you learn about this, always have in your mind the correct and fair way to use this energy. Take this powerful energy that’s there for all of us and don’t use it for manipulation. Use it in ways that increase what you can do. Use this energy in ways that increases what can happen for other people and the support you show for these people. It’s a powerful energy, but in your reality’s comic books we see Loki is made out to be the bad or evil guy.

You don’t need to learn too much about Loki, but learn the correct use of energy. Loki grabs your attention, but then take your attention and look beneath it. Remove the person, Loki, from what you’re learning and see what’s there and how you’d use this energy. This will increase your ability to manifest and do things.

LadyInLife says, Interestingly the man I’m seeing is really into Loki and even has two tattoos dedicated to him. The Council says you both had a past life together as children. It was a fun life where you were very close and you played many games. You both came from wealthy families. You had the freedom to not work and had lots of time for play. You both used your imaginations and pretend stories to become other people. You could live on other planets. The imagination you both had together was very helpful and gave you a happy childhood.

In your current lifetime you both created a common interest in Loki to bring you together. But we say again, go beyond the person of Loki and learn about astral travel, changing shapes, and using energy to help people rather than manipulate them. Go forward and learn more about this.

LadyInLife says, I’m also wondering if you can tell me about any past life connections I have with this man I’ve been seeing, and tell me about how Loki is involved with us. The Council says this is coming from your imaginations in the past life we mentioned. Before you came into this lifetime you created this life where you’d learn of something beyond this time and could experience it and learn about it together. You wanted to live with the principles you find in the subject of Loki that the two of you created.

LadyInLife says, This relationship is fairly new, but it feels like it has long-lasting potential and hopefully it will remain a harmonious and beautiful thing. The Council says your relationship was created to be a long-lasting one. You created it to take you both on an interesting journey in this lifetime. Going forward, enjoy every step of the way, see what you learn, and how you can both grow from this.

The Council wishes everyone fun on your path, happiness along the way, challenges you can overcome, and to create the manifestations you want. You can begin to learn it’s easier and easier to direct your life. Stay in joy, stay in love, and follow your path.

What Is My Life Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named LDavis1978, who says, I’m on a journey of self-awareness and manifestation. I know I want a lifestyle based on freedom and being with family and the ones I love. I know I want to be my own boss, spend my time how I wish, and do something I love. However, I’m stuck on my life purpose. How can I best serve and add value to humanity? Obviously I still need money, which I know is energy. Can The Council help me with my purpose in life?

The Council says your purpose and everyone else’s is to come into this reality and have fun, to bring love in, to have challenges and turn them around, to not take yourself too seriously, and most of all to learn there’s so much more in this reality than you’re aware of.

We see you planned to have the freedom to move around and to work for yourself. You say you’ve taken many courses, and this is a good thing. When you planned this reality you wanted to find something you really liked and then become a coach in this. You wanted to find a way to help people.

At first you thought you wanted to help people physically, but then you changed it because you knew the direction this reality was going and what everyone would face. You decided you wanted to help people develop their minds. You wanted to find out how to work with your own mind first, to manifest with it, be positive, connect with other people, and work with energy. You were very interested in bringing this in and coaching people on how to do this.

In your current reality have fun, but look at your life. Take many classes until you find something that works with the mind that you’re really interested in. And then, after you are well into this subject, come up with things you’ve changed in your own life and how you’ve gone about this. Perhaps you can teach people in small groups, or perhaps just starting with your family or a few friends, to look at things differently. Anything you choose to learn in this lifetime that has to do with expanding the mind and showing people how to do this was your goal in this reality.

You can turn this coaching into a way to make a living. At first you’d do whatever job you have at the moment, but while you were doing this, take your free time to learn more and more about the mind. That was your purpose for coming into this lifetime. You wanted to do this very lightly with a lot of fun and in ways that are easy to understand. When you learn something and it is difficult for you to understand, think of another way you could teach people how to understand this. Come up with your own ways that are more simplistic that can reach more people. This would give you the freedom and the time you desire.

LDavis asks, What are the skills I can use to serve and create a lifestyle for myself and my family based on freedom? The Council says your biggest skill is you know how to learn and you know how to listen and turn things around in your mind. The whole purpose of this particular lifetime is for you to learn to use your mind and pass this learning on to others.

LDavis says, I struggle to think of any skills I have or what brings me joy. The Council says being friendly, being a good listener, bringing fun into whatever you learn, having interesting questions that you can ask people, having a collection of interesting stories of what’s happened to you so far in this life, and sharing these things with others. You were a great storyteller in the Indian culture many lifetimes ago. You can tell stories. And the way you tell them will bring about the information that’s needed for people to have in this lifetime.

LDavis says, I’ve joined programs where I meditate, journal, do inner work, set goals, and visualize. The Council says this is wonderful and asks how you’d teach these things? How would you put your own creation into teaching these things and making them easier and more fun?

LDavis says, I can see the end result. I understand my why, which is my family, but I need guidance on my dharma, my purpose and the steps to take me there. The Council says you’ve already taken many steps with the journaling, with the meditation, reaching out, and learning different things. Do you see you already intuitively were putting yourself on the path of working with your mind? With your mind you’ve increased the ability to write, to journal, to put your understanding or questions into it. You use your mind to meditate, and then let go. You’re already doing what you planned.

Going forward just remember, anything that would reach people and teach them how to increase their ability with their minds, and know this is where we manifest with our thoughts and our visualizations, will give you a whole new career.

The Council wishes everyone fun on their path, happiness along the way, challenges you can overcome, creation of the manifestations you desire, and you can begin to learn it’s easier and easier to direct your life. Stay in joy, stay in love, and follow your path.

Is Mediumship The Path For Me?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named. Audrey. She says, I had an abusive childhood and when I grew up I was abused by partners also.

Audrey says, I met the love of my life in 2012 and he passed away in 2018, which almost destroyed me. I was numb and for a long time I wanted to join him. About a year after he passed away I had visions of him and heard him talk to me. I still feel him around and sometimes he gets into bed with me.

Audrey continues, I attended a circle this past year and started to feel more and more like my mental and physical health took a dive, and I don’t feel spirit like I used to. The Council says since you attended this group if you feel that your mental and physical feelings are on a downward spiral, we’d say that’s a sign you need to work on your own and not put yourself in a relationship that makes you feel unwell.

You need to read more books on spirit. The easiest one we always recommend is Emmanuel, by Pat Rodegast. Read that and you’ll connect with this spirit, and this book will lead you to others. You need to meditate and be with your thoughts. Learn to feel the energy. A nice technique is The Reconnection. We believe a book was written about this by Eric Pearl called, Heal Yourself, Heal Others. Play with this energy and you’ll advance. It’s simple. You’ll begin to know how to move energy and how to create with it. It’s a wonderful beginning for you.

Audrey continues, Is my path mediumship, or is it something else? The Council says if this is something you want, you can go in this direction. We don’t see where you created this life to be a medium. Learn about spirit so that you understand it and you can connect, and then tell other people how they can do this. You can be a medium and connect with spirits that have passed, and do this for other people, but it’s not what you planned.

Audrey closes by saying, I want to be able to help people with proof because I needed it after my boyfriend died. The Council says you have the proof because you truly have a connection with this person who’s passed on. And this proof is for you. By sharing your experiences you plant the seeds in others that they can also connect with spirit and you offer them ways to try this. This is how you’ll help other people open up to connecting in that way.

The Council closes by wishing us all peace, love, and light. And they say have fun on your path. Always look for the fun. Happiness will bring in everything you wish to create, whether you know what it is now or not. Your higher self knows. And when you stay happy, your higher self can bring what you desire into your life.

Is There a Long-Term Relationship in My Future?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Core, who asks for advice on her romantic relationships. She says, For the past few years I’ve been experiencing brief connections that never lead to anything long-term. While these experiences have taught me a lot, they’ve also been heartbreaking for me. I recently went through another one of these brief relationships and it’s really bringing me down. I’m starting to feel a loss of hope because I don’t understand how I can get out of this pattern. I feel each time this happens, I learn many things and I’m trying my best, but I’d like to experience being in a relationship and building a foundation for something that lasts longer than a month or two.

The Council says in a past life you lived in a farming community. You were alone most of the time working, unable to get away and be with other people. In your current lifetime you wanted to be able to flit around from relationship to relationship, whether it’s an intimate one, a friendly one, or family. You wanted the freedom to experience a lot of these relationships.

Now that you’ve done that and you desire to turn your path to a more permanent relationship, the first step would be to appreciate every relationship you’ve had. Think about this and outline in your mind all the things you liked about each one.

When you’re in a new relationship, instead of worrying if it will last or not, appreciate what you have. Tell yourself you’ll love this relationship and appreciate everything that goes on, no matter how long the relationship lasts. Being in the present and being appreciative will change the energy of worrying if your current relationship will last or not, to: this is wonderful, I love being in this relationship and I appreciate it. Now I’m ready to find a permanent relationship. If you put that energy out there, things will begin to change.

Core asks, Is there a longer-term romantic relationship between me and a partner there for me in the future? The Council says you’ve planned in spirit that there will be one. To bring this relationship in now you should constantly think you’re ready for it, and not be upset about the relationships that didn’t last. Appreciate them. Appreciate that you could experience so many different relationships and now you’re ready and waiting to find a relationship that will work just for you. You’ll bring in the right person to have a relationship with.

Core asks, What can I do to make finding a long-term relationship easier on myself. The Council says to meditate, and keep seeing down to the tiniest detail, what you’d like a permanent relationship to look like. As you keep meditating and visualizing this, you’ll begin to bring in the energy of the right person for you.

Core asks, Can you provide any insights on my situation and why I’ve been experiencing these brief connections. The Council reminds Core how she wanted the different experiences because in a past life that you want to heal differently, you went from having minimal relationships with others to having many relationships in your current lifetime. You’ve now had a balance. You’ve had almost no relationships and you’ve had a lot of them. Now you can steer your life in the direction you want. When you make the connection to a past life that you’re working on now, the connection becomes easier to make, and the change is easier to make.

Core says, There’s a similar pattern around other aspects of my life. Living situations, career, friends, and circumstances come into my life and then leave so fast for me. The Council agrees and says it’s because it’s all energy and it comes in many different forms.

Core says, I know I’m growing and transforming rapidly because of these brief relationships, but I’m beginning to burn out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The Council advises Core to visualize and feel as if you’re already in the relationship you desire and you’ll create this relationship.

The Council closes by saying to have fun on your path. Always look for the fun. Happiness will bring in everything you wish to create, even if you know what it is now or not. Your higher self knows. When you stay happy, your higher self is able to bring in what you want to create.

What Is My Spiritual Path?

This post answers a question from a reader named, Rose, who says, I’m still trying to figure out my spiritual path and your words always help. I’ve always had this feeling that I’m meant for something bigger than what I’ve settled into in my life. Since I was a child I’ve imagined myself being something great. I’m now a young adult and I’m struggling to find the path I should be on. I know my current life isn’t what my life is meant to be, and this person I am isn’t who I’m meant to be, but I’m struggling to move forward. I understand this is incredibly vague. I guess I don’t have a very specific question. I just need some guidance in any way you see fit to offer it.

The Council says you’re on this journey in this reality to find excitement in your life. There was the thought of becoming someone great. What you wished to do was to lead a life of mystery. You wanted to travel around and meet strange people with incredible stories that you’d research and write about. You wanted to be interviewed for the books you wrote and the people you met.

You thought it would be fun to come into this reality and have a life filled with mystery. You wanted to connect with the authorities, like a police department, and have a job where you could be there, learn about their cases, and then write about it. The big thing was to have a fantastic life and write about it.

If you want to go in that direction, we advise you to read mystery books and take a course in writing. Just sort of dabble in this and learn about it. Then be aware of the people around you and the stories they have. They may not all have mysterious stories. They could be wonderful stories of how these people grew up and how they turned their lives around. That’s what you wanted to do this lifetime, and you still have time to do this.

Slowly go in this direction and you’ll find you have success, because this was something you wanted while you were still in spirit deciding how you wanted your reality to be. Think back on your past. What have you come through? What have the people in your family come through? There are interesting stories all around you. Write for yourself first. Take the classes you need. Get instruction on how to write. Read books on how to write. And then begin this part of your journey.

Should I Stay Married to My Husband?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Starseed_Lightworker, who says, I’m at a crossroads in my life and I’d appreciate your guidance in the decision I want to make. My husband and I have had various issues since the beginning of our marriage and it’s been ten years now. I was in an abusive relationship for a long time, and then I decided to love myself and be self-dependent. I was in such a miserable situation earlier in my life that I felt like committing suicide a couple of times during that phase, but my love for my young child kept me alive. By hard work and the grace of God I’m now in a position to take care of myself and my child. The thing is that my husband seems to have changed during the last three years, but I can’t forget what he and his family did to me earlier.

The Council asks you to remember that your husband is on his own journey, and there are challenges and issues that he wishes to learn about, even though you don’t know what this is. We think it’s wonderful that you’ve begun to see the change in your husband. And it’s wonderful that you’ve gone ahead and become what you planned in spirit to become in this life, which was to be powerful, independent, and to do it all yourself and not need another person to do things for you. You don’t have to suffer through abuse or the fear of abandonment. You’ve changed your path and in your lifetime you’ve created the path you wanted to find.

Starseed says, Going forward my plan is to keep doing better work in the office and study part-time in a university while doing work to support myself and my child. Eventually when my child grows up I plan to retire, travel, and do more spiritual and teaching work. I don’t want to be dependent on anyone for money, happiness, and taking care of me. I want to do it all myself. The Council says they see you’re already on this path.

Starseed says, I’ve begun to find solace in loneliness now. The Council says you’re beginning to find solace with yourself, not with loneliness. There’s quite a difference.

Starseed says, I have a very good job opportunity in a different state. It’s remote work right now, but I can move there if I want, which would be a fresh start for me and my child and a different way of living life. The Council says this was also something you wanted to create. You wanted to create travel, have the ability to move around, and be successful wherever you are. Look at what you’ve done. You’ve already brought this opportunity into your life.

Starseed says, The difficult decision I need to make is, should I continue staying with my husband for the sake of my child having a father. Or should I move on and build a new life for myself and my child? At the current moment I like my husband as a friend since he’s changed from his abusive patterns, but I’ve lost the love.

The Council says, Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to remain friends, but not be together as partners? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a friend that lives nowhere near you, but you can communicate in whatever way you wish and whatever time you want? We see what you’ve planned and you’ve planned to move on. We see there’s great success in your future if you stay on the path you wanted to create for yourself, and we see you’re doing a wonderful job of this. You’ll have another love in your life if you wish to not stay with your husband.

You’ve done so much and taken yourself so far. Would you hold yourself back now when you have the opportunity to move on? And as you move on, the work you do will change and your career will change. You have the opportunity if you really want this. If you’re afraid to leave right now, you can leave in the future. We see this is there for you. It’s what you’ve created. But we’d ask you, why would you come so far and hold yourself back? There’s no wrong answer. You will move forward. You’ll decide when. You have the power to make this move happen when you’re ready, and this is a beautiful thing.

Starseed says, I don’t know whether I can love my husband again considering the history. At the same time, I’m also not sure if there will be love for me outside of this marriage. Can The Council please guide me and provide some input. The Council says they are so happy for you. It’s hard for some people after they leave the spirit world. They have all these plans and one thing or another gets in the way. Or their plans change, which is fine. But you have created so much of what you wanted, of what you planned when you were in spirit. You’re a powerful soul. You’ll go forward in this life, whether it’s right now or five years from now.

You are right on track. You’re doing exactly what you wanted to do, and that’s a wonderful thing. We here are so happy for you. We’re proud that you’ve stayed on the path. We know it wasn’t easy, but you took your situation and changed it. Love yourself. Hug yourself. Kiss the mirror as you look at yourself. You’ve come a long way and we wish you much happiness and speed on your journey.

Stay friends with your husband, if that’s possible. Know that when you’re ready and when you want it, you’ll bring in another person to love. If you stay on your path, whether you go now or later, there’s another love and a successful future waiting for you. As much as you can, create in your mind how you think your life would be when you move on. Imagine where you want to live, how you want to work, and how you’d like to spend your free time. The more you focus on these things, the more you’ll know when it’s time to do what you want to do. The choice is always yours.

If you’re afraid at this moment, or you choose to stay and six months, a year, two years, three years later, you don’t like that you stayed, there’s no problem. Then you make another decision and change what you do. Go in the direction you want. Whether you go now or later it doesn’t matter. You are the creator. And while you’re trying to decide, imagine in every detail you can, the way you wish your life to be and all your answers will come.

We wish you all happiness, success, and most of all love and joy. Find the fun and joy on your path. If you feel you don’t have it, head towards it, imagine it, and know you are the creator. What you think of, what you say, what you write, what you visualize over and over is how you’re planning your future.
