This post is inspired by a follow up question from a reader named Gabriela who asks for guidance about the romantic feelings she has for a woman named Lara who Gabriela mentioned in her last question. She says despite plenty of synchronicities nothing has happened with Lara, and Gabriela was told by someone the reason for this was that she didn’t deserve the pain Lara would bring into her life, which was difficult for Gabriela to believe because Lara seems like such a nice woman.
The Council says Gabriela is already experiencing the pain and sadness of a relationship with Lara because they aren’t together. They ask Gabriela to change the focus of her attention because they see it’s possible to have the relationship she desires, but they say it will never happen as long as Gabriela is focused on the idea that Lara will bring pain into her life.
The Council says if Gabriela changes her belief that Lara will cause her pain, she’ll be able to create the relationship she desires. But The Council also says if Gabriela finds it easier to let go of her desire for a relationship with Lara, they do see another partner for Gabriela.
The Council says Gabriela’s pre-birth plan was to have a relationship with Lara, but because Gabriela believes this relationship will cause pain and sadness, she’s creating this in her life right now by keeping her out of this relationship.
If Gabriela can change the way she sees this relationship with Lara so that it’s a good relationship rather than a painful one, she can have that good experience. The way Gabriela chooses to believe her relationship with Lara will be is the way she’ll experience it. The Council adds Gabriela can also create an additional relationship with another partner that they mention earlier in the session.
Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Gabriela and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Nacole, and the questions her abortion prompted her to ask The Council.
Nacole starts by saying she’s read the bible most of her life, prayed over everything, and was very judgemental toward women who had abortions because she thought it was selfish. But today she had an abortion and she surprisingly finds herself at peace. The Council interjects here it’s wonderful how Nacole realizes she was judgemental about something she was unable to accept, and how in spirit she set up going through an abortion so she could learn something new about this experience.
Nacole says she felt the father of her last child was her soulmate, but he left when she was seven months pregnant and she’s been devastated by this. Her current pregnancy is with a man who’s in a relationship with another woman and he disappeared when Nacole told him she was pregnant, which she expected. And so she decided to abort this pregnancy rather than go through it alone.
Nacole says she’s home now after the abortion and she was prepared to battle suicidal thoughts and extreme fatigue, but they never came. She can’t explain it, but she feels love rather than guilt or pain. She’s been thinking about the baby she aborted and all she can do is smile at the thought of her. And she feels an unexplainable impulse to make changes in her life life like stopping smoking, reduce her alcohol consumption, lose weight, and get rid of bad relationships with people who treat her poorly.
When Nacole used Google to get information about what she was feeling, she came upon our website and was pleasantly surprised by the stories of other women’s abortions and how much they reminded her of what she was experiencing. And she asks The Council six questions.
Nacole wants to know how difficult the process of changing her life will be. And The Council says, as difficult as she believes. They say Nacole planned this abortion in spirit to teach herself about her beliefs and her judgements towards other people. And The Council tells Nacole her calmness and very little cramping and bleeding is coming to her because the child she aborted is a very strong soul who is sending her love to get her past this part of her life.
The Council advises Nacole to focus on bringing one change at a time into her life. Acknowledging the changes she desires is the first step. Focus on what she desires rather than the difficulty of the change. And The Council advises Nacole to see nothing is permanent, everything can be changed, the direction of this change is her choice, and she shouldn’t give up.
Nacole asks The Council what will happen if she fails bringing these changes about, and The Council replies there is no failure. The only way Nacole can fail is if she gives up all her dreams, and they don’t see this happening.
When Nacole asks if she’ll ever get over her relationship with the father of her two year old daughter and find someone new, and The Council says why not. It’s her choice. That relationship wasn’t going in the direction she desired, so create from that point forward. Ask yourself what type of person you want to be with. Find a match in your mind and your feelings and you will easily forget what didn’t work out in this previous relationship and create a new one.
Nacole asks how the abortion can be changing her thoughts and beliefs so quickly, and The Council says it’s because she’s now tuned in to her higher self and this is what she planned in spirit before birth.
When Nacole asks why she doesn’t feel guilty about the abortion and The Council asks how she can feel guilty when she is feeling peace and there is understanding of how life can change.
And Nacole’s final question is will the spirit of this child she aborted come back to her in this lifetime, and The Council says they see this spirit moving on. What they’ve created together in this lifetime was enough for both of them to learn from and they both have different experiences they wish to learn now. But they emphasize Nacole will always be able to experience the love from this spirit even though they are both moving on.
Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council (below) to receive their guidance for Nacole and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from Darla, who says she’s had psychic experiences her entire life and has always felt very spiritually connected. But she struggles with the anxiety these psychic experiences cause and asks The Council if she was psychic in other lifetimes.
The Council says when people begin to tap into their psychic ability, in some cases it causes anxiety and these people imagine they’ve done something wrong in a past life and are afraid. But The Council says your psychic ability is part of who you really are and everyone has these abilities.
In a lifetime in Germany The Council says Darla had the ability to hold objects like jewelry in her hands and receive psychic information for people from these objects. (In our session they refer to this as Kinesiology; we suspect a more appropriate term is Psychometry.) And they say Darla also had the ability in that lifetime to see a person’s problems and the guidance that benefited them.
The Council says because Darla helped people with her psychic ability in another lifetime, this ability is appearing to her again in this lifetime. And they suggest she read books on mediums and begin to study auras. She brought this psychic ability into her life again so she could help herself and others.
The Council doesn’t see a deep rooted fear that Darla is asking about. Instead they see this fear as something in Darla’s present life and it stems from a lack of familiarity with her psychic perceptions. They advise her to play more with her psychic ability and they predict this fear will disappear.
The Council says Darla wants to discover more about herself in this lifetime than what she experiences in normal day to day physical living. In spirit she thought it would be fun to face fearful situations in her life and see if she could find the courage to turn this fear around. These are the reasons she decided to bring this psychic ability into this lifetime, and The Council says she’ll be able to do this.
Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to get all their guidance for Darla and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Delfos who had an abortion about a year ago and felt very sad about it until recently when she started to feel better and clearer.
The Council sympathizes with Delfos and says it’s sad in our reality when we feel an abortion ends a connection with a soul we love. But for all abortions The Council says there is an understanding and an agreement between your soul and the soul of the fetus. You never lose that connection and there is no ending.
Recently Delfos was told by another medium that the aborted child was a girl who is very angry and sad because she wasn’t allowed to come into this life. The Council asks Delfos why this spirit would be angry for not being born when it beautifully planned with her in spirit to be aborted before they both were born? Why would this soul be angry when it is back in spirit where there is no anger, only joy and love? The Council is clear with Delfos that she was following a path that she mapped out with this spirit and her decision to abort wasn’t wrong.
When Delfos says she told this medium that she only felt love and acceptance from this aborted soul The Council enthusiastically suggests she hang on to that feeling. But Delfos says the medium tried to make her feel guilty and says she needed additional sessions to release this soul. To this The Council replies why would Delfos go back to this person who made her feel guilty and uncomfortable. And The Council adds this was just an experience Delfos created and now she can chose to accept it or not.
At this point Bob suggests Delfos might go back to this medium because she thinks the medium will be able to remove her guilt. And The Council replies only Delfos can choose to let the guilt go and hold onto the love this aborted spirit is sending her. That is what she needs to focus on. And The Council adds this aborted spirit is very much at peace and in joy, and still is sending Delfos love.
Delfos says this medium told her if she doesn’t solve this situation she won’t be able to get pregnant again, or that her future child will be angry and messed up. To this The Council says they feel Delfos knows much better than to believe this.
When this medium tells Delfos she has personality problems and her dead grandmother is worried about her, The Council says there is no worry in spirit. Spirit sees what we choose to experience and sends us love to help us through whatever we choose to go through. There is nothing wrong with Delfos.
The Council explains that Delfos attracted this medium into her life as a challenge whether to feel fear and stay in it or know better and choose to feel the love and remember her connection with this aborted spirit. It’s a situation that Delfos created so she could see the opposite of love and then remember she and her aborted child are pure love.
Listen to the 11-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Delfos and the rest of us. And feel free to ask The Council a question that’s been on your mind.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader who calls herself ‘S’, who’s sure she’s pregnant again after terminating a pregnancy a year ago. The father is a friend who isn’t interested in dating S, but she feels drawn to him for reasons she’s unable to explain. She doesn’t feel right about ending this friendship and it’s intimate physical benefits, but has felt that she should. Now she’s confused about why she’s created this pregnancy and where things are headed with the father.
The Council says the purpose of S getting pregnant was to give birth to a soul she’s shared other lifetimes with, so they could move forward and create together in this lifetime. If S feels the child isn’t wanted at this particular time, The Council says this reality will change (the child won’t come full term) and this spirit will return to S in a future pregnancy.
S asks how much power she has in creating an outcome, and how does she know whether to focus on being with the father and child as a family – or not? The Council says if S truly wants to stay with her friend as a family, she can create this with her vibration, her thoughts, and her feelings. Whether S chooses to end her relationship with her friend or not, it’s purpose was to help get her pregnant with this spirit.
S says she thinks the soul she’s pregnant with now is the same soul she was pregnant with a year ago and The Council agrees. And they repeat that if this child isn’t wanted at this particular time, this spirit will return in a future pregnancy.
The Council advises S that she has many options with this pregnancy. She can abort and wait until she meets someone else. She can abort and bring in this spirit at a later date with her friend if she chooses to stay in this relationship. She can have the child now and leave this relationship with her friend if it’s not the right relationship for her. The Council suggests S search her feelings, determine what she wants, and create from there.
Listen to this short but powerful 6-minute session on S’s questions to receive all The Council’s guidance for S and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Gabriela, who is nearly 30 years old and has never experienced a long-term romantic relationship, but wants to badly.
Gabriela says she made a spiritual agreement with someone to be her partner in this lifetime, but they didn’t come through. And The Council responds it’s not definite that this person would show up or stay in Gabriela’s life. They say what Gabriela and this person create with their thoughts will turn their relationship one way or another during this lifetime.
The Council says it’s important to understand that you create every situation that happens in your life and that no one can push you in a direction that you, as a spiritual being, don’t want to go in. The purpose of this life is to learn who you are, that you have choices, and that you are a powerful creator.
Gabriela says she’s alone, bitter, and not interested in living anymore. And The Council asks why she’d want to throw away what she’s created because of what she’s experienced at this time. They remind her she’s able to change her circumstances because she’s the creator of her experience, and they advise her to create what she wants.
The Council says if you aren’t in the vibration of love and appreciation for yourself, you aren’t in the vibration of attracting the type of person you’d like to be with. Gabriela set up in spirit that she’d go through many relationships that are not what she desires so she’d have to learn to love herself.
The Council says she has a strong spirit to choose this challenging path. If Gabriela begins to think about her good qualities, begins to love herself, and knows what a loving partner she’s capable of being, they say she will raise her vibration and bring this in.
The Council says we usually have a desire to create things in our lives where we feel we could have done better in our past lives. That’s the purpose of each reality we create. And they add that there’s nothing we create that is wrong. We create it in order to have the experience of it and then improve it.
Ask yourself what loving feelings you can bring to your current experience. When you shift your thoughts to love, your vibration changes and it’s felt by everyone around you. And this is how to get what you want.
Listen to our entire 16-minute session with The Council on Gabriela’s questions (below) to receive their full guidance for her and the rest of us.
This post is a follow up that was inspired by some additional questions from a reader named Vacha, whose question about guilt over terminating a pregnancy we recently answered. Now Vacha is asking about moving back to India where her parents live, and how to get along better with her husband and in-laws.
The Council understands that Vacha has issues with her in-laws in India and they recommend putting the move on hold for now. Vacha has issues with her husband, things to discover within this relationship, and things to teach her son while she’s with her husband. If she’s able to work out her issues with her husband before this move back to India, she’ll be able to work out the issues with her in-laws when this move eventually takes place.
Watch what’s going on in the relationship with her husband and see each problem in the light of what it’s trying to teach both of them.
The Council reminds Vacha it’s not her place to have her family get along. Her purpose is to see what’s happening, change the way she handles each situation, see things the way she wants it to be from a place of love, and everything will change. Her parents, her in-laws, and her husband will all change because they’re around her and she’s creating a new reality with her mind, her words, and her feelings.
Vacha asks The Council what spiritual lesson she’s learning with regard to her husband, mother-in-law, and other family members? And The Council says her purpose is to take difficult situations and bring love into them.
Vacha has a powerful mind if she chooses to use it. She can use her thoughts and feelings to create what she desires. The Council recommends spending a lot of time seeing herself with her son and husband in happy and successful situations.
Vacha wants to understand other people’s feelings and fears, and help these people move through them. She should watch the people around her and she’ll begin to see what they need and what causes the difficulty in her relationships with them.
Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Vacha and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Janice, who felt love and a soul connection with a partner, but he has pulled away and Janice says he betrayed their relationship with someone else. She asks The Council what’s going on in this relationship and whether there might be a reconciliation.
The Council begins by stating that what they see in this situation is an agreement in spirit for Janice to have a very short stay in this relationship. A little later in the session they remind her that while this relationship wasn’t meant to be a permanent, she is the creator of her experience and they ask how strong is her desire? The Council asks if Janice can see this reconciliation happening, and is there a joyous feeling? Or does she want a reconciliation because there’s a fear of moving on and not knowing what to move on to? The Council describes this relationship as transitional, and says it was to help Janice decide what kind of relationship she’d like to have.
They go on to say Janice chose to have many experiences that would make her wonder what kind of person she is. And they ask if this relationship has left her with no hope in her life and she finds it difficult to move forward? Or can she appreciate what she has even though there’s confusion about what’s going on, and is able to move forward easily?
The Council advises Janice to focus on something new and asks her to think about what she now wants in her surroundings, her work, her friendships, and her relationships. What can she imagine for herself that will take her on a new journey with new people? This is what was wanted when Janice planned in spirit to have this relationship.
What Janice planned was that she’d let go of this relationship, find gratitude in it because there’s always something worth being grateful for, and move forward with ideas about the kinds of people in her life so she can learn about herself. The Council says that’s the purpose of this reality for her.
Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council on Janice’s situation to receive their full guidance for her and for the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a question from Vacha about a planned termination of her pregnancy. (We previously posted our session with The Council on Vacha’s question as a single track with minimal comments because Vacha had an appointment the next day to have the abortion and we wanted her to hear the session as quickly as possible.)
Vacha says the abortion feels right to her, but she feels guilty about not giving her baby a chance to live. She has read and listened to several of our other posts on abortion and feels comforted by the thought that this abortion could be planned by her spirit and the spirit of her child, and she asks The Council for information about this.
The Council begins by reminding Vacha that choice is her most powerful tool and this abortion was a choice she planned in spirit before she came into this lifetime. She wanted to make the decision to abort based on how she felt rather than on the opinions of other people.
The Council says Vacha planned in spirit to get pregnant so she could find the strength to wake up to who she truly is as a spiritual being and what she wants in her life. They say the spirit of this child chose to help Vacha become more dependent on herself, her beliefs, and what she wants. The Council encourages Vacha to make her choice knowing it’s what the two spirits planned, and to think about how this abortion will change her life.
When Vacha feels there’s a problem with her health or when she feels there are ongoing issues with her husband, the purpose of this pregnancy is to help her look at these issues and think about how she’d like to change them in her life.
Vacha should begin to plan how she’d like her life to be. The Council says the question here is not whether she should terminate this pregnancy. The agreement between her spirit and the spirit of the child was made because Vacha needs to wake up to the life she was living, decide what would make her choose to live her life differently, and look at the bigger picture.
As Vacha prays and meditates, she should begin to feel the presence of the child’s spirit, the love, support, and light it will continue to send her so both spirits can continue to move forward on their journeys.
The Council advises Vacha to let go of any guilt she has about terminating this pregnancy. She and the spirit of the child are following a plan that was made and has brought her to the exact point both spirits wanted. Now she is to create what she wants in her life moving forward.
Listen to the recording of our entire 16-minute session with The Council (below) to get their complete guidance for Vacha and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Sarah, who had an abortion about a year earlier and feels it left her clinically depressed. She’s scared she’ll have depression for the rest of her life, but she’s not comfortable taking anti-depressants.
The Council starts by saying we experience depression when we’re not connected to who we truly are as spiritual beings, and they suggest meditating on this and focusing less on something being wrong with Sarah’s brain. And they add that as spiritual beings we understand we are here to find the joy in our experience, and because Sarah is so unhappy, this depression is pushing her to search for something more.
The Council recommends books and videos that teach how we plan our lifetimes as spiritual beings and they specifically suggest reading books by Robert Schwartz. And they say depression comes because Sarah doesn’t appreciate what she’s created for herself and the spirit she aborted. Many think of abortion as an ending of a life, but The Council says it’s a beginning because this soul is now free to have other experiences, including returning to Sarah in a future pregnancy.
The Council says Sarah had a spiritual contract with this aborted soul who wanted to experience what it was like to be part of an aborted pregnancy. This soul was not interested in experiencing a full term pregnancy but if Sarah wishes to move forward, this soul can return to her in a future pregnancy. And The Council says these two souls will have a closer bond because they experienced this abortion together.
The Council emphasizes there isn’t any need for Sarah to feel depressed about this abortion because everything went according to the way the two souls planned this, and there is great love between these two spirits, and great love in deciding what path to take next.
The Council encourages Sarah to look for books that connect her to spirit and past lives, and they recommend the books of Emmanuel by Pat Rodegast. They also encourage Sarah to do whatever it takes to get into the vibration of love and joy, and from this vibration she’ll be able to create her future the way she wants it to be.
The Council says this aborted soul has continually been sending Sarah love from the moment this abortion was planned in spirit and there is still a stream of love flowing from this soul to Sarah, helping her to get through this depression. The more Sarah is able to let this love in, the less she’ll need to concern herself with a relapse of depression.
The Council closes with a recommendation to look for little moments of love and joy from her spirit and the spirit of her aborted child to move her forward in this lifetime.
Listen to our entire 13-minute conversation with The Council (below) to experience their full guidance for Sarah and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a follow-up question from a reader named Wendy, who asks The Council if she’ll get pregnant again with the soul of the child she recently aborted, and will her current boyfriend be the father.
The Council says being the mother of the aborted soul is what is planned for this lifetime whether she stays with her current partner or not, and they add that at any moment Wendy is free to choose otherwise.
If Wendy finds joy in this relationship with her current partner and does the inner work of imagining how she wants this relationship to be, there’s a good chance of her re-creating the pregnancy with this man. They advise Wendy not to rush into making this relationship something permanent or rush and jump out of it when she feels insecure, and look at whether this relationship is fulfilling her desire to have this child.
Wendy says she wants badly to have a real chance with this man and The Council advises her to be mindful every day of what she’s grateful for in this relationship and focus on the joyous moments so she can be in that vibration, which will allow her to create more things to be grateful for.
Wendy says she scared because although she’s always had a partner, she never had one she wanted to create a life with. She’s also scared to bring up that she’d like to become a mother in the near future. For this The Council suggests she meditate to remind herself she’s a spiritual being in a physical body, even if she doesn’t fully believe it yet. When she aligns with this thought it will give her the strength and clarity to move forward. There’s no need to be afraid because she wants this relationship to work out and The Council advises her to let this fear go.
Wendy should be clear when she speaks to her partner about their future to see if he’s in agreement with her desire to become a mother, and see what kind of reactions she gets. Being truthful about her desire for motherhood will help her see if this is the correct partner for her.
Listen to The Council’s entire 8-minute session (below) to get all of their guidance for Wendy and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Dianna, who asks The Council what her life purpose is. Diana has been training as a teacher and teaching overseas for the past 5 years. She says she knows we all make soul contracts before we come into this life, and asks what she’s supposed to be doing or learning in this lifetime.
The Council begins by saying many souls incarnate with a soul contract to accomplish specific things they’re interested in experiencing. And there are other souls who wish to create their lives as they go along, without pre-planning before birth what they want to accomplish.
We all plan to bring the vibration of love into our lives, have fun, and not take life so seriously, but this second group of people are free to decide within their current life how they wish to accomplish this rather than pre-planning ahead of time. And The Council says Dianna is one of these souls who wished to create her life as she went along.
Although these people don’t pre-plan what they want to accomplish, they have in common with all souls the desire to learn about an emotion like love, abandonment, sadness, shame, grief, or loneliness, and to turn the difficult emotions around with love.
The Council says Dianna’s purpose in this lifetime is to experience as much as she can and to bring love into these experiences. They say to look for clues in what she wants to do by examining her teaching experiences and the work she did before she taught to see what brought her the most joy. Or she can already have ideas about what she’d like to try but hasn’t gotten around to? And they say Dianna wanted to be a bringer of light, understanding, joy, love, and support for those people she meets along her path.
It’s good for Dianna to work within a community and teach about nature if she hasn’t gone in that direction already. The Council says as she prepared to enter this lifetime there was a great desire to travel and to help the people she met who needed someone to uplift them and give them a new perspective on what they were experiencing.
Even when we make a pre-birth contract and experience our reality the way it was planned, at all times we have the ability to change this pre-planning. With this ability Dianna has the freedom to focus on a particular career, or travel more as she feels the desire to move on. The Council says the choice is always there.
Dianna was able to connect with the spirit of trees and plants and had a green thumb in other lifetimes and this is able to be experienced again in this lifetime as a career or as a hobby. The Council also see more travel would be good for Dianna because that is what was desired. But they add if she finds herself someplace she doesn’t want to move from, this is fine because there wasn’t any plan to live her life a specific way.
Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Dianna and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a reader named Wendy who asks if the soul of the child she aborted will be able to return to her in a future pregnancy.
The Council advises Wendy, now that she has gone through this abortion, to really focus on getting control of her life. She should think of the direction she’d like her life to go in and plan it that way. She should have more confidence in herself, believe in what she wants no matter what anyone says, and move forward. Wendy should resist the temptation of being talked into what others believe and handing her life over to others. She shouldn’t dwell on why this abortion happened, or the idea that she was talked into something she didn’t want. Wendy needs to trust herself more and surround herself with people she trusts, but always ask about her own desire and what direction she wants to go in.
Wendy says she has a son, and The Council says they hope she’s able to find joy and gratitude he’s in her life. They say this is the beginning of understanding her feelings and connecting with joy, and in joy we create the future.
The Council says Wendy has forgotten how to feel her desire and create what she really wants. They say if the desire is real, her universe will help her through this experience no matter who agrees with her or doesn’t agree with her. And when she is happy with her decisions, the right people will help her move forward in her beliefs.
The Council advises Wendy to work with her focus and her feelings to let go of the sadness and guilt around her abortion, and if she’s able to do this, the aborted soul will return to her in a future pregnancy. They say she has a strong desire for motherhood and this soul is waiting to help her fulfill this desire. The Council sees this happening if Wendy focuses and believes. The say it’s all lined up for her to bring in.
The Council closes by saying they’re here to help everyone in our reality, and as we all connect, they bring the love from their reality into ours. Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Wendy and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader who calls herself Dealer99 who says her life has been blessed with a few amazing love relationships, but she’s been patiently waiting a long time for a marriage relationship. And she asks The Council if they see any blocks to her getting married.
The Council asks Dealer99 if a marriage is what she really wants because they see another lifetime in the 1600s where she was forced into an arranged marriage and she was very unhappy. And they say in this lifetime she wanted to be free and to experience love everywhere she went.
Now The Council sees there is a desire for a long-term relationship in Dealer99’s life and they say she is able to change her life by feeling grateful for each of the relationships she’s had and imagining all the reasons she’d like to be married. They say there is nothing in her way and there are no blocks to stop her from getting married.
The Council encourages Dealer99 to focus on the benefits of being with one person rather than being excited by new relationships. They say the only thing that would stop her from experiencing a marriage is a belief that there’s a block that’s in the way, and that she doesn’t have the spiritual ability to create what she now desires.
The Council says even though Dealer99 planned to experience this lifetime without getting married, it is always within her power to change this. And they see a marriage has a great possibility of happening if she uses her imagination to change her beliefs and sees what she wishes to create.
The Council recommends several things Dealer99 can do in her physical reality to help her create this marriage. They say she can put empty hangers in a closet with the intention of them belonging to her partner. She can make an empty drawer available for her partner when he comes into her life. She can set her table for two and have an extra bathrobe available for her future partner. The Council encourages Dealer99 to have fun with her imagination to create this new relationship. And they say as the creation comes from within her, it will appear in her life.
Listen to the entire 7-minute session with The Council below to receive their full guidance for Dealer99 and the rest of us on how to create what we desire.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Hadassah who feels like her life has gone backward since she married her husband. Hadassah says she and her husband were both successful before they married, but now they seem stuck and have become roadblocks for each other. Hadassah wonders why this is the case and asks The Council for guidance.
The Council starts by saying that Hadassah and her husband are experiencing a wonderful roadblock, but can see how she might be experiencing this negatively. They say she and her husband agreed in spirit to come into each other’s lives and help each other reach for their dreams. In discussions with her husband she should plan with him and help him come up with ideas to move in a direction he would like, and he should do the same for her.
The Council says as the two of them work to support each other’s desires, their energy becomes positive, there is more love in these situations, and they will see this roadblock disappear. Their desire was to come together and focus on each other rather than themselves, and to be of service to each other. They say Hadassah will experience much love when she focuses on the feeling of helping her husband move forward toward what he wants from life. And because her husband is focusing on her and helping her move forward, she will have success with new ideas she comes up with.
The Council encourages Hadassah to have fun with being supportive to her husband and vice versa. They say this situation is not about Hadassah falling apart because she’s with her husband and nothing is working out. That is what the both of them created in spirit to get to this point where they can find the love within themselves and help each other reach for their dreams. They say that’s how the two of them wanted to be of service in this lifetime.
The Council says it’s important to really listen to her husband and come up with genuine ideas that help him reach his goals, and he can do the same for her. Bring the fun and the love and the joy into this and it will move much quicker than they think.
The Council says Hadassah and her husband are at a turning point where they can learn to be there for each other and want each other’s desires to be fulfilled. And The Council promises they will see a gigantic change when they bring the love from spirit into their lives and experience the feeling of really wanting each other to succeed.
Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council to answer Hadassah’s questions. We feel there’s a lot of guidance in this session for anyone in a relationship.
This post is inspired by a reader named Darla who is asking The Council for some career advice. She’s been a stay at home mother for 14 years and loves her children very much, but now she’s ready to re-enter the workforce and she has huge insecurities about what type of job she’d be suited for. She feels lost and like she’s not traveling down the right road to genuine fulfillment, and she asks The Council her main purpose in this lifetime.
The Council begins with a statement that everyone’s main purpose in all lifetimes is to bring the feeling of love into whatever you create. And they suggest Darla begin slowly and perhaps jump around a bit until she finds what gives her the most joy.
The Council says Darla intended to be of service, make a difference, and teach the people she meets how to speak their truth using pictures and stories. If she still feels joy around being with children they suggest she start out by volunteering with them, or possibly young adults or older people.
The Council sees Darla wanted to work specifically with pictures and recommends finding opportunities to teach children to make pictures of what kindness looks like. They say there was also a desire to work with older people who have memory problems and they suggest working with colors to stimulate them.
The Council says Darla has the ability to feel what others are feeling and this is a great gift. They recommend feeling what is needed in each situation, learning more about it, and coming up with ideas to bring out the comfort and joy in each person she works with by talking about feelings that need to be spoken and released or drawing pictures of these emotions. They say this will take time. And they add that of all the things Darla wants to create in this lifetime, trust, love, and safety figure prominently.
The Council says if Darla goes in this direction she’ll open a door within her and find the gifts she needs to bring out the creative side in people. They say this is a big job and it will lead her on a wonderful path, and there will be lots of growth and change within her as she finds ways to do this.
The Council says Darla wants to find a way to teach kindness to the people she meets. And they say as she goes from place to place she’ll see what’s needed and create her own way to bring this kindness out in others.
The Council says if Darla begins in the workforce, even if she finds herself working in a restaurant or a retail store or an office if that’s what’s needed at this point in her life, they say to go with this. But everywhere she goes, without judgement she will see how people treat each other and ask herself how she can show kindness and teach it creatively. The Council says this will take time, but there will be many rewards as Darla moves forward this.
Listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council on Darla’s questions to receive the full benefit of their guidance for her and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by a reader named Linda who says she was involved in some occult rituals before she found God, and she asks The Council if psychics are able to see her past, forever? She says someone performed a sexual energy ritual on her that she believes has “forever devastated me”, and she’s concerned because psychics say they’re able to see this and it makes them sick.
Linda says she doesn’t have any part of that life anymore, but The Council says she does have part of this in her life because each time she focuses on what happened, she is bringing this experience into her life.
The Council says no one can do any sort of ritual and put any sort of energy on you if you do not believe it and allow it. They say most humans would go into fear and believe they’re powerless under these circumstances, but The Council says this in not true. They encourage Linda to feel her power, begin to believe who she is as a spiritual being, and understand this was an experience she has passed through and has now chosen another way. And they say nothing ties Linda to this person and the ritual she participated in except her belief that it continues to effect her.
The Council says everything that happens to you is because of what you believe and they recommend Linda change her beliefs about this ritual. See it as an experiment she chose to go through, but no longer needs in her life. If Linda believes the results of this ritual are hanging around her she can think of these energies drifting away and focus on her new path with God.
The Council says because Linda believes this ritual is still affecting her, she’ll bring people into her life that will say they see this energy until she realizes this is no longer needed. But The Council says it was important for Linda to have this experience so she could come to the understanding she’s strong and she can chose. And The Council says if Linda begins to change her thoughts and finds more joy with her God, her energy will become lighter, she’ll feel better, and people will no longer see evidence of this ritual.
When Linda asks if this experience can be removed from her, The Council says as she truly finds forgiveness she’ll understand this was an experience that was needed by all concerned and she’s passed through this. Concentrate on what makes her feel strong: her God, love, and joy. This is what will help her remove the unwanted effects of this ritual.
The Council sees Linda has a fear the effects of this ritual will be with her the rest of her life and they say the more she thinks of it, the more she’ll keep that energy around her. They say a big lesson in this lifetime for Linda is not to have the thoughts and opinions of other people affect her. She should find the strength to release this by herself by staying in the vibration of love. That is what The Council sees is necessary now, and they say they will always be there to help her.
This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who asks The Council about healing with crystals. They says their attracted to crystals even though they don’t know much about them and purchased a labradorite sphere for self-healing, but every time they used this sphere near the body they would get sick.
The Council begins by saying Anonymous knows a lot about crystals from another lifetime and has returned to it in this lifetime. They were a peaceful soul working with crystals at the time of Lemuria and The Council sees much use of crystals before their current lifetime.
The Council suggests using the labradorite sphere outdoors around trees and sitting on the grass so the energy of the crystal can mix with the natural surroundings. They say crystals are a much higher vibration than the human body and the distress Anonymous feels is because this sphere is such a high vibration and it’s working to clear out blockages in the human body and the auric field.
The Council suggests working with the labradorite sphere for a limited amount of time and to place it in a room Anonymous is in, just keeping it around. As Anonymous begins to feel good around the sphere they can begin to handle it, meditate with it, and place it on the body, but again they recommend doing this outdoors so the energy of the Earth, the plants and trees, the human, and the crystal can adjust to each other.
The Council says it may be uncomfortable at first, but this will change and eventually the labradorite sphere will raise Anonymous’s vibration. And they add there is no harm that can come to them from this sphere. The discomfort results from trying to adjust to the sphere too fast, which causes a reaction in the body.
When Anonymous asks if they should stay away from crystals The Council says not at all, and they recommend working with other crystals like rose quartz and clear quarts which are very gentle.
In answer to Anonymous’s question about what their lesson is with the labradorite sphere, The Council says they see that crystals brought them much joy in this other lifetime and even though they don’t consciously remember this, they recognize something in the sphere that was familiar. The Council says it’s wonderful for Anonymous to continue this lesson of having joy working with crystals again.
The Council recommends several ways of working with crystals in this lifetime and emphasizes Anonymous has nothing to fear from the labradorite sphere or other crystals, and to give themselves time to adjust to the sphere.
Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s wonderful guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us for working with crystals.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Susan about her and her mother’s pre-birth spiritual plan for this lifetime. Susan says her relationship with her mother was often painful, especially when she was younger, because her mother was a bi-polar manic-depressive. And she asks why didn’t family members step in to protect her.
The Council says Susan planned it this way. And her planning comes from another life she and her mother shared as orphan boys living on the streets and stealing to survive, maybe around the early 1800s. They both experienced a lot of violence and hate in that lifetime with no understanding and no love, just a will to survive.
When they both left that reality, as spirits they thought it would’ve been good if they learned how to forgive and understand. And so they decided to create this life together where her mother would be harsh and she would experience a desire to care for her and learn to forgive her. And what she learned about forgiving she would share with her mother when they returned to spirit.
The Council says knowing about this past life will help Susan a great deal with her relationship with her mother in this lifetime. And they ask, can she forgive her mother for the manic-depression she created so Susan could have an experience of that. Can she love her mother because she was willing to go though this disease to push Susan to understand and find forgiveness in her heart? That is what Susan wanted to experience in this lifetime. And if they follow through with their intentions, they will reverse the roles in a future lifetime and Susan will be harsh so her mother can learn to forgive.
Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Susan. We find this session to be particularly fascinating.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Tracy who’s about 2 months pregnant and scheduled to have an abortion the week after she posted her comment. After reading our post on Beth’s abortion she felt at ease, but has difficulty believing that karma won’t get her or her 1-year old son and asks about that. This will be Tracy’s third abortion and she asks if these souls have come back into her life. And she asks for advice on her spirituality, which she struggles with.
The Council starts by saying Tracy’s abortion won’t have a negative impact on her son. They say karma is what you believe and wish to create in your many lifetimes. They say there isn’t any monster karma that will make life miserable for her or her son, and ask Tracy to let go of the fear something in the future will affect them.
The Council says each of Tracy’s three abortions was pre-planned by her in spirit before she was born. They were created so she could learn about the gift of life and how wonderful it is to allow souls to come into this life and create the reality that soul chooses. And they ask Tracy what she has learned from each of these abortions.
The Council says these aborted souls have not returned to Tracy’s life, but have helped her understand her part in creating her son’s life. And they say she wants to understand the spirituality of becoming a parent and to be supportive of what her son creates rather than being a controlling mother.
The Council asks Tracy to meditate on the gift she and her son have given each other. And when she realizes she is a spirit helping another spirit move forward on his path she’ll experience great joy and love, not only for her son, but also for the souls she aborted.
The Council finishes by counseling Tracy to bring love into every situation and ask herself how she feels with each experience she creates. And they say to always ask for more understanding, more acceptance, and more allowing.
Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to receive all The Council’s guidance for Tracy.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the name, Soul Sister. She says last year she met a woman at a course she was taking and they felt an immediate connection, like they had known each other before. This woman told her they were ‘soul sisters’ and she wants to know what this means. She’d also like to know if they’ve shared a past life, and the circumstances if they did.
The Council starts by saying a soul sister is someone you recognize from another lifetime by their energy, not necessarily their face. You know you have been with them before and you usually have come together to share an experience in this lifetime.
The Council sees these two souls were together in Atlantis working with energy, and they ask Soul Sister if she has an interest in energy healing, crystals, and the power of the mind in this lifetime because that is what they did in Atlantis?
Then The Council says there’s a big jump to a lifetime in France, maybe during the 1500s, where these souls were together in a convent as nuns connecting to God through prayer. In both these lifetimes they were interested in looking for what it means to be spirit in a physical body.
The Council says there was also a lifetime as children whose mothers worked in a bakery making bread and cake for royalty during Renaissance times.
These are the lifetimes affecting their current life and The Council says if they experience a spiritual connection, it’s from the first two lifetimes. And they would be very happy supporting each other going forward learning more about who they are as spiritual beings.
The Council suggests any activities that have to do with energy, healing, crystals, meditation, prayer, the mind, gratitude, and beliefs will be helpful to these two women.
Listen to the entire 4-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Soul Sister.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader who goes by the name, MangoJuice13, who asks: Are all abortions an agreed upon contract between souls before birth?
MangoJuice13 read our post, Was I Correct in Aborting My Pregnancy?, and was interested to learn the reason for the abortion in that post was to challenge a woman named Laura to see how people swayed her opinion or pushed her to do something she didn’t want to do. MangoJuice13 says she’s in a similar situation.
She made a decision to abort out of fear after her partner pressured her. She says she feels guilty and angry, and wishes she had chosen differently. And she asks: What was the purpose of this abortion and what lesson was it meant to teach her?
The Council says all pregnancies are agreed upon in spirit before birth, but all abortions are not pre-planned. They say sometimes the abortion is pre-planned in spirit. And sometimes the souls agree to come together in a pregnancy, look at what is going on in their reality, and decide then whether to abort the fetus or not. And the soul of the fetus lovingly understands and accepts whatever decision is made.
The Council says MangoJuice13’s abortion was the opposite of what’s been discussed often on our blog. In this situation the soul came forward in spirit and said it wanted to experience being aborted, just living in the womb and not coming into this reality. After the soul expressed the desire to experience abortion, MangoJuice13 stepped forward in spirit and said she would help this soul experience this. This was not a situation where MangoJuice13 wanted to experience an abortion to learn something. It was to help another soul have this experience.
The Council asks MangoJuice13 to now look at her relationship with her boyfriend and figure out if it’s the right relationship for her going forward. And to ask if the people around her are supportive, or are they not allowing her to be who she wishes to be. The Council says that is what she wished to experience.
The Council sees MangoJuice13 developing strength, making a decision to get pregnant again, and deciding if it will be with her current boyfriend or another. And that was a purpose of this experience.
Listen to the entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to answer MangoJuice13’s question and receive the benefit of their full guidance.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader who gives the name, Anon. She’s recently found out she’s pregnant after trying for 18 months, but now is afraid this pregnancy is a mistake. The same thing happened 18 months ago, but she miscarried. Anon says she’d never have an abortion, but keeps asking the soul to leave because she’s afraid having a child now will upset her family’s “lovely life”.
The Council begins by telling Anon a good question to ask herself is why she’s been trying to get pregnant if she feels the same way about this pregnancy as she felt when she miscarried 18 months before?
Anon says she wanted a sibling for her daughter, but now she’s scared. The Council recommends she practice changing her thoughts from fearful ones to ones of this child adding to the family’s happiness and increasing the family with love. They feel this is what Anon planned as a soul before she was born, but The Council adds there isn’t any reason for regret or anxious feelings if she doesn’t give birth to this soul.
The Council says when you create in spirit you have an idea what you’d like to experience in your human life. Once you are here you forget what you planned and this reality gets in the way. They say perhaps Anon has changed her mind because there is so much fear and she doesn’t know how to get past it.
The Council says to get past the fear Anon must come from the vibration of love. And they say she has the choice in every moment to stay in the fear, or imagine she’s ready to expand on the love she has with her family by giving birth to this child.
The Council says if Anon allows this spirit to be born, she is on one path these souls agreed to. And if she decides not to have this child, this was also part of the agreement. The Council says there is love in both decisions and Anon needs to stay in this vibration of love whatever direction she decides to take.
The Council says currently this child has no plan of miscarrying. They say if Anon tells this soul every day she’s changed her mind and doesn’t want the child to be born, she can cause a natural miscarriage. But they repeat that from their point of view this child currently plans on being born.
The Council repeats if Anon is determined not to go forward with this pregnancy, this is perfectly alright. But they also say Anon and this soul have been together in other lifetimes, they have many lessons they wish to learn together in this lifetime, and if this soul comes into this reality it will give Anon a lot of strength and pleasure.
The Council says Anon is experiencing the fear of the unknown, but she’s been told she knows this soul from before, they will have an interesting life, and they will learn many things together. They say the choice is Anon’s.
The Council says if Anon miscarries, this soul will return to her if she becomes pregnant again because they have many things they want to learn together.
While we like to think these sessions with The Council are important to the the person who asks the questions, this session seems to offer a broader wisdom we hope many listeners will appreciate. Listen to the entire 11-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Anon and for the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions from Maria about her past lives and her spiritual path. She has been told by a psychic that she’s a healer and asks The Council if they see her doing this as a career.
The Council sees a past life as an American Indian where Maria was a medicine woman who did a lot of healing. In this lifetime she knew how to work with plants and to call in spirit to ask for help. The Council says if Maria has a desire to be a healer, it comes from this past lifetime.
The Council says if Maria wants to carry forward her healing ability into this lifetime they ask her to work with people’s emotions. When people speak to her she’ll feel what’s behind their words. They advise Maria to listen with her heart to understand what the person is trying to heal, understand, and aspire to. They also suggest reading books on herbs, other plants, and Bach flower essences.
The Council asks Maria to look into healing as a profession and if she feels it’s something she’d like to do, they say she’d be a success.
The Council also recommends learning about crystals by reading books and visiting crystal shops, lighting incense when she prays, and walking barefooted among the trees. And all the knowledge she had as a healer in this past life will slowly return to her.
Listen to our entire 5-minute session (below) with The Council to receive the benefit of all their guidance for Maria and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Laura who wonders whether she made the right choice by aborting her pregnancy and asks how she can stop her regretful thoughts, if the soul of the fetus will return to her as a future child, and if she’ll get pregnant again.
The Council says this particular soul agreed in spirit with Laura’s spirit to be aborted to help Laura become stronger within herself, and to understand what Laura decides to do in this reality will always bring her to where she wants to be. And The Council says there was no wrong decision and it went off exactly as planned.
The Council says the aborted soul will not return to Laura as a future child in this lifetime, but they do see Laura having a child in the future when she’s ready.
The Council says instead of regretting her decision to abort, Laura can begin to feel this soul has been released into the light and love of spirit and is always sending Laura love to help her get through the difficulty she’s currently experiencing.
Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council on Laura’s questions (below) to receive the full impact of their guidance.
This post is inspired by a reader named Cait, who says she thinks about ending her life every day because it’s so painful, and she asks The Council if she’s able to break a pre-birth contract she made in spirit once her incarnation has begun.
Cait begins by asking The Council, what if the path your soul chose to achieve spiritual growth actually inhibits your spiritual growth? And The Council says this is never the case. They say your spirit works out whatever challenges it wants to meet while it’s in the physical body, and while this can seem difficult from a human point of view, your spirit knows exactly why it has chosen what it has chosen and what it is trying to accomplish.
The Council says when you begin to accept you are spirit in a physical body and believe you can learn with less difficulty, and can focus on the way you wish your life to be rather than the way it is, this is the beginning of change. You always have the power to turn your situation around. When you plan in spirit whatever you want to experience, it isn’t written in stone. You create every minute of every day, and so you can create something new.
Cait says she thinks about ending her life every day, and while The Council says there is no judgement in spirit for taking her life, they explain there’s growth she can experience from going through these challenges. And if she chooses to pass on these challenges in this lifetime she’ll be postponing them until she chooses to learn from them in a future lifetime.
Cait comments that her life is harmful to her soul, and The Council replies that her soul will never create circumstances that will harm her spiritually. It creates these situations for her to grow from them, to change them, and to bring love into them.
Cait asks how she can get out of her current challenge without killing herself and The Council advises her to refocus her attention and read as many books as possible on spiritual growth that can teach her who she is as a spiritual being.
Cait finishes her comment by saying her higher self doesn’t appear to care about her or her suffering. And The Council says Cait has no idea the love, caring, and support that spirit has for her if she’ll open up to it, even if she only pretends to feel it at first.
The Council recommends Cait read a book written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel and Pat Rodegast, and the energy from this book will help her turn her life around.
The Council tells Cait she’s come to this feeling of desperation and wanting out on purpose to experience an extreme situation so she can find a better way through this. And The Council says she will find it.
Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear first hand all their guidance for Cait and anyone else who’s having difficulty navigating their current circumstances and is looking for a better way to experience them.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Lunar Teddy about the death of her ex-husband and the pain and mourning she’s experiencing as a result.
The Council says the pain and suffering Lunar Teddy is experiencing come from searching for the validation she wanted from her ex-husband rather than finding it within herself. They recommend instead that she focus on any happiness she can remember when she was with her ex, and to know that he has completed his task in this reality and is in a joyous, loving place.
The Council says feeling grief and loss or that she and her ex never connected will take her thoughts into creating sadness and depression. They ask Lunar Teddy to speak to her ex in her mind before she goes to sleep and tell him all the things she would like to have done when he was here. The Council assures Lunar Teddy her ex will hear these things and will send her love. And the peace she’s looking for will come.
The Council encourages Lunar Teddy to release any unpleasant thoughts about her ex-husband’s family. They say it was what he needed to experience and she can be glad he completed it and is in a much better place. And they repeat that her ex is sending her much love, and she can focus on this when she feels separation from him.
Listen to the entire 6-minute recording of our session with The Council to answer Lunar Teddy’s question to receive the full benefit of their guidance.
This post is inspired by questions from a woman who goes by the name of Grandma Someday whose daughter had an abortion 3 years ago and the same daughter is currently pregnant with an unplanned child she’s planning on aborting this coming weekend.
After her daughter’s first abortion a clairvoyant told Grandma Someday her daughter would become pregnant again with the same soul from her pregnancy 3 years before and that child will be a lot like Grandma. Grandma asks The Council if this information is correct because her daughter plans to abort this child, but Grandma appreciates her role is to support her daughter’s decision rather than tell her what to do.
The Council sees the spirit from the abortion 3 years ago is the same spirit Grandma’s daughter is currently pregnant with, but after the abortion this weekend The Council says this spirit won’t return to this lifetime with them. The Council adds the purpose of these two abortions was to help her daughter align her life and become more serious in the direction her life takes, and they say these abortions will fulfill that purpose.
The Council says the earlier clairvoyant was correct about the same soul coming to Grandma’s daughter in her first two pregnancies, but The Council sees a third pregnancy with a new soul that wants to live out this lifetime with the daughter and Grandma. The Council says if the daughter chooses to abort the third pregnancy, it was planned it would be her last pregnancy in this lifetime.
The Council says they’re very glad to hear the mother say she feels her role is to support her daughter’s decision in this lifetime because in a previous life she was a controlling mother of the same daughter, and the daughter ran away and didn’t return. In this lifetime the mother wanted to soften her heart, be supportive, and learn not to be controlling. And The Council applauds the mother for accomplishing this.
Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to hear every bit of their guidance for Grandma Someday.
This session is inspired by a reader named Sam and her questions about a relatively recent pregnancy she terminated. She says there are a lot of loose ends around the termination, and The Council begins by saying these loose ends Sam is talking about are all part of the learning and moving forward.
Sam says ever since she learned she was pregnant she’s been feeling a sense of wholeness and love for herself and she asks if this love is coming from the soul of her child. The Council says while the child’s soul is constantly sending her love, the love Sam is talking about is Sam loving herself because she has followed her pre-birth spiritual plan exactly the way she intended.This love is part of who Sam truly is as a spiritual being. The Council says Sam stepped forward to help this soul, who desired to briefly experience what it was like to be in a human body, and then leave Sam’s body quickly.
Sam says the father of this child wasn’t really there during this pregnancy and isn’t currently in her life. She asks if there’s any meaning to why he was never part of the pregnancy and termination. The Council says the father also agreed in spirit to help this soul experience a brief physical life, but it was never agreed he would stay with her and be a family. Sam says sometimes she thinks about the father and wishes she could tell him all she’s learned from terminating this pregnancy. She says part of her doesn’t think he deserves to know and part of her thinks she should tell him, and Sam asks The Council what she should do.
The Council says in Sam’s spiritual pre-plan, this soul would play the part of the child’s father and then leave Sam’s life. If she chooses to involve him at this point, they say she’d be drifting from what she originally pre-planned, but they add this is okay. This is part of the choice she has in her current lifetime and they advise Sam to think about this choice. She is able to communicate with the father non-verbally and she should know on some level this communication is received. When this information is needed by him, he will have the benefit of whatever she has spoken to him about.
Sam says she’s learned not to look at this experience as a mistake, but part of her feels sad and she wonders if this is from loosing the child or from what she describes as poor decisions she’s made in her life. The Council says if Sam feels she’s made poor decisions, has she learned from them. If she had the opportunity to make these decisions again, would she decide differently based on what she now knows. And they add that this is what life is about – learning and moving on. They also tell Sam it’s important to look at the choices she’s made that have worked out for her and that she feels good about.
When Sam says she feels like she’s running away from her true self, The Council replies there’s nothing wrong with the way she’s handling her situation and they advise her to be open, accepting, and move forward. She will learn from this experience. They advise Sam to feel good about herself, look forward to having more understanding, and feel that it’s safe to let her energy expand rather than holding it close to her physical body.
Sam asks if she shouldn’t feel ashamed for hiding this pregnancy from her parents, and The Council says she is here to experience the love of spirit and there is no purpose to feeling ashamed. There is nothing wrong with the choice she made to terminate this pregnancy.
At the end of this session The Council makes the point that they answered Sam’s questions long before she wrote them on our blog. But was she able to let the answers in? Was she able to sit quietly and understand that her thoughts and feelings or the things she suddenly understood, is spirit reaching out to her with the answers to her questions?
The Council points out that when you have a question, spirit provides you with answers instantaneously, but are you receptive to them? In Sam’s case she had these answers, but she needed them to come in a different way. So she created the answers through this blog. The Council explains we have yet to fully develop to the point where we trust our intuition, and our thoughts, and our feelings. And they add that this is why we are here in this physical reality.
The Council asks Sam to let go of any shame, any regret, or any thinking of wrong doing on this situation she is coming through. It was pre-planned by her in spirit and she executed it beautifully in her physical reality. And they remind Sam to hold on to the feeling of self love.
This session offers much guidance on many aspects of terminating a pregnancy. Listen to the entire 16-minute recording below to hear all of The Council’s advice for Sam and anyone interested in this subject.
This post is inspired by questions and comments from a reader named Guadalupe, who wants to know if her spirit guides know how much she’s achieved in this lifetime; if there’s anyone in spirit who’s proud of her; and how can she get more stable so she can help others (among other questions).
Guadalupe’s story is one of a very difficult childhood and then happiness because she overcame her problems. But she doesn’t understand why life was so difficult for her, and she says it hurts her that other people have such stable lives and loving families.
The Council says Guadalupe created this difficult childhood in spirit so she could learn to become more independent as a human being. She wished to have a family that wasn’t supportive and would turn their backs on her so she would have to be strong.
The Council says because of what she experienced it’s normal to resent other people’s good fortune, but they advise Guadalupe to appreciate how she created this experience in spirit and then changed it on her own in her human experience. That was the way she planned it. Her plan was to get through these difficulties and become a stronger person and to show others this can be done.
The Council says focus on where she is now rather than on the difficulties she’s come through. Learn to love and appreciate herself and that she has changed her life. The more Guadalupe is able to love and appreciate herself, the easier it will be to let go of resentment and appreciate people who have stable and loving families.
When Guadalupe asks if anyone in spirit is proud of her for what she’s accomplished, The Council says she can’t imagine how proud spirit is of what she’s come through. They advise her to know it doesn’t have to be difficult anymore. She has the ability to change her life. She has accomplished what she wanted. There is such great love and appreciation in spirit for what Guadalupe has gone through, what she has learned and will continue to learn, and what she will teach to others.
Guadalupe says she resents her family for abandoning her as a child and teenager, but The Council reminds her this was all part of her spiritual plan to become a strong and independent human being. The Council asks Guadalupe to see that her family were spirits who stepped up and said they would make it difficult for her because that is what she asked for in spirit. It was her intention to experience these difficulties, work her way through them, and make her life better. The more Guadalupe realizes her family played the part she requested, the less resentment she’ll have for them and the easier it will be to love them.
Guadalupe says she knows she’s come to help others and she wants to achieve her purpose here, but she doesn’t know how any more. The Council reminds her she is doing this. Now she just needs to go forward in her life, be open to new possibilities, and to experience what she’s created for her future.
Guadalupe says she feels emotionally unstable because of the traumas she’s experienced and asks how she can get more stable so she can help others. The Council says to appreciate herself and send herself love. Learn to meditate if she can. Continuously focus on all she’s accomplished. Let go of what she’s gone through that was painful. These are things that were needed to bring her to the place she is now. Love yourself and march forward.
Listen to the audio recording of the entire 19-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Guadalupe and anyone else who’s experiencing challenges in their lives.
This post is inspired by a comment from Tracy on a post we published in April 2013, which was before we made recordings of sessions with The Council available. That post answered one of four interesting questions from a reader named Jose about why we fail to remember who we are as spiritual beings in our physical life.
Tracy asks a few questions beginning with, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” And ending with a comment about seeing the mistakes we’ve made, “but have no power left to sort it out, and already feel dead.”
As we re-read the post Tracy commented on, we decided to make a recording of it available in this post in the hope it might be helpful to Tracy and other readers, at least until we can publish a post to answer Tracy’s questions. While the earlier post answers only one of Jose’s questions, the following recording has The Council’s answers to all four of Jose’s questions. In case you’re interested, here are the five posts we published back in 2013 to answer these questions.
- Every Question Is Important
- Why Do People Appear Unable to Fulfill a Spiritual Intention to Have Fun and Remember Who We Are?
- Does Spirit’s Pre-Birth Planning Negate Human Free Will?
- Future Lives, Connecting with Famous ‘Dead’ People, & the Importance of the Present
- What Is Spirit Up To?
Thank you for your questions and comments, Tracy. We’ll do our best to get The Council’s answers and publish a recording of the session in the near future. In the meantime we hope our readers will listen to the following recording of our session which prompted those questions and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Guadalupe who had an abortion 3 months ago. First she asks if her abortion was pre-planned, and The Council says it was definitely pre-planned. They say she followed the path she had planned with this spirit and there is no reason for guilt.
Guadalupe asks if this soul is her spirit guide, and The Council says not in this lifetime. Maybe in other lifetimes this soul guided or will guide her, but in this particular lifetime this soul was not her spirit guide. When she asks if this spirit is close to her when she thinks of him, The Council says yes. And this soul is constantly sending her love so she can let go of any feelings of guilt about her decision to end this pregnancy.
Guadalupe asks if this soul loves her and The Council says without a doubt there is love. When she asks if this spirit plans to return to her, The Council says they don’t see that in this lifetime, but they will be together again eventually.
Guadalupe asks if there’s disappointment over her decision to terminate the pregnancy, and The Council asks why would there be disappointment when everything went exactly as planned. In response to Guadalupe’s question if this spirit is doing well now, The Council says with a chuckle that where they are this soul is doing very well. And this spirit is working very hard to send her love and hoping she will let this love in and feel it.
Guadalupe assumes she’ll never meet this spirit and asks how to contact it. The Council tells her, of course you’ll get to meet this spirit. And she can contact it through her prayers, meditation, and in her dreams. They advise her to speak to this soul either out loud or in her mind and feel this soul around her. The Council also says Guadalupe should know she gave this spirit the experience it wanted.
Guadalupe apologizes again for ending her pregnancy and The Council reminds her she gave this soul a gift of something it wanted to experience. And they say this soul stepped forward and gave Guadalupe something she wanted also.
Guadalupe asks what lessons she learned as a result of this abortion, and The Council says this situation brought her to a spiritual crossroads. Will she stay feeling guilty and sad, or will she eventually understand what a wonderful thing they both experienced? And does this open her to more spiritual experiences and feelings of love, because that is what she wants in her life?
In closing The Council suggests Guadalupe think of this soul as someone she loves who has moved to another neighborhood, and eventually she will get to that neighborhood and be reunited with this spirit.
Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Guadalupe.
This post answers several questions from a reader named Sarah who’s 23 years old and relatively new to thinking about her spirituality. She begins her questions by asking The Council for some general clarity on the nature of things and her path to intimate love.
Sarah explains how her deeper appreciation for self-love and love in general has caused her to question the meaning of twin flames and soul mates, and whether she can create them in her life. And she describes a very close male friend who seems meant to be something important to her, but she doesn’t feel that drawn to him as a boyfriend.
Sarah asks if this young man is her twin flame or soul mate because she wants to know if she should try and create these in her life, or sit back because he’s the one. She asks how much of her situation is pre-determined spiritually and how much she controls as a human being?
The Council’s Answers
The Council starts by commenting it’s wonderful Sarah understands the importance of loving and appreciating herself rather than projecting her love onto someone else so she can feel it.
The Council addresses the question of twin flames, sometimes referred to as twin souls. After a little background which you can hear in the recording below, The Council asks if we realize we’re all the same soul, all connected, and part of the One. And they ask if that doesn’t make us all twin souls?
The Council says many people are looking for their soul mate because they believe it will be the perfect relationship, but they don’t seem to agree. They say soul mates don’t just come along in a love relationship or partnership. They can be cousins, friends, acquaintances, and they usually push you to grow and force you to a higher level of understanding, whether it’s through positive experiences or negative ones.
In response to Sarah’s question about whether she’s able to create a twin flame or soul mates in her life, The Council says she can create either or both. The Council is firm that you as a spiritual being are in charge of your life experience.
There’s some interesting discussion about the ways your spirit pre-plans what happens in your physical reality.
With regard to Sarah’s male friend, The Council advises appreciating the connection they share, and know she doesn’t have to feel drawn to him romantically. He’s in her life for whatever experiences, fun, and challenges they go through together. But as far as a love relationship is concerned, she is able to create something else if she wants.
In response to her question about whether he is a twin flame or soul mate, The Council says because they’ve shared many lifetimes together, yes he can be a twin soul and yes he can be a soul mate. But they add that we are all those things to each other.
Listen to the entire 19-minute session below for details of The Council’s answer to Sarah’s question.
This post is about a question from a reader named Susan, who was molested/raped by an older brother from 12 years old to 14, when she became pregnant with his child. Susan has learned we often enter into pre-birth agreements with other spirits to share certain experiences during a physical lifetime and she asks what agreement she made with the spirit of her brother that allowed this to happen.
The Council says Susan wanted to go through something shameful in this lifetime so she could have the experience of trying to turn it around with love. The spirit of her brother volunteered from a place of love to help her with this challenge. And Susan also wanted to experience the joy of forgiveness by forgiving her brother.
The Council says that as a spiritual being Susan is pure love and light, and from this point of view what she experienced with her brother isn’t as horrible as it sounds from a physical point of view. The Council is clear Susan chose to experience this challenge to know she’s okay whatever happens in her physical life.
The Council says if Susan feels this challenge is too much for her and she’s having difficulty bringing love into it, then she needs to remove herself from being around her brother for a while, but to take time to send him love. They say she doesn’t have to feel it; just think the thought. It can be difficult in the beginning, but sending love will change both of them for the better.
The Council says it was very brave of Susan to ask this question. They add she’s performed a valuable service and brought a lot of love into this reality by asking it. And this question will help many others in similar circumstances.
The Council says we are never alone and spirit is always sending us light and love. They advise meditating on what this love and light feels like and gradually our thoughts and feelings will begin to change. And they say this doesn’t just affect the two of them, but it affects us all.
The Council closes by reminding us that human and spirit help each other and to remember we are more than a person in a physical body. We are also spirit. And we’re here to take the love from spirit and expand it into our lives, and to know there is nothing wrong with how you experience your human life.
Listen to the recording below of the entire 18-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance. This session was longer than most and we’ve only included some of the highlights here. There’s a lot of guidance in this session and we encourage you to re-listen to it or the parts you think are worthwhile. And as always, please let us know what you think.
In this post we answer Tanya’s question about a man and their on-again off-again relationship. Back in March 2013 Tanya asked a previous question about this relationship and to answer it we published the post, Why Would Spirit Choose to Be a Human Being Who Experiences Pain.
In that 2013 session The Council predicted Tanya would get back together with this man, and she starts her current question by confirming The Council was right. They got together at the beginning of 2015 and he proposed marriage to her, but the next day he changed his mind and Tanya’s been feeling depressed about this.
The Council informs Tanya she created coming together with this man because there was something to be learned from this relationship. She asks if they see the two of them reconnecting again, but she also says they’re not currently speaking and it’s okay if they don’t speak again.
The Council restates what’s important for Tanya is to learn what her experience with this man has taught her. They do see another coming together and they say if it’s her desire to make this relationship work, there will always be a way.
The Council encourages Tanya to focus on herself now instead of waiting for this man to come back into her life. They say it’s wonderful to choose to move on, and it’s also wonderful to stay with this man. When she finds out what she’s learned from this relationship, she’ll handle the situation differently and she’ll be happier with her choice.
The Council is pretty clear there is no right or wrong path for Tanya the next time this man comes into her life. It seems the important thing is to take this time to figure out what this relationship means to teach her. And with this information it will be up to her how she handles the next time.
Listen to the entire 8-minute session to hear all of The Council’s guidance for Tanya, and let us know what you think.
This post answers a question from a reader named Jan about angels, guides, spirits, channeled entities, and other non-physical beings who watch over and interact with human beings. Jan understands she’s an eternal soul here to bring love from spirit, but she’s fascinated by The Council’s take on these other non-physical beings.
The Council begins by mentioning that angels are spiritual beings that haven’t had a physical life as a human being. But many other spirits and guides have lived physical lives in human bodies and come back to us in the form of channeled guidance. The Council also mentions that although angels are made from light and energy, they can appear to humans in any way we believe they will look.
The Council says when these spirits and guides leave their human bodies they often volunteer to help the humans that remain by coming to us with healing or channeled information that’s brought to us by people who allow this information to come through them.
The Council says it’s the energy and the feeling of love that comes through the words rather than the words themselves, and they promise if you read or listen to it, the understanding will come to you a little at a time.
The Council reminds us that even though we may be in a human body, part of us is still simultaneously in the spirit world. This can be a surprise for those of us who think when we come into a human body we leave spiritual reality behind.
When Bob asked The Council about non-physical beings who might be interested in spreading fear instead of love, they respond that many people have a need to believe there’s something evil ‘out there’ that’s creating all this horrible stuff that’s going on. The Council says we’ve created this to turn it around – to realize the fear and evil do not exist.
The Council says spirit is working very hard to constantly send love and supportive energy to us humans, and they are answering our questions, whether we get the answer in a dream or a feeling.
Listen to the entire 9-minute recording of our session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jan and her question on non-physical beings.
This post is about a question from a reader named Jan who wants to know if The Council’s use of pronouns like ‘you’ and ‘we’ is meant to differentiate between themselves and those of us in this physical reality.
The simple answer is, we don’t think so. The Council says sometimes they say ‘you’ when they’re trying to make a point about the person who’s asked a question. And they sometimes say ‘we’ when they’re talking more generally or when they are included.
The not so simple explanation has to do with how The Council experiences reality and how we experience reality. The Council says they use you and I often to refer to the same person because we are all one. But they add this point of view takes some understanding.
The Council says, “In truth we are all parts of all reality. And yet it is easier for people to understand when we say, ‘We have chosen to be part of your reality.’ It is easier to understand it that way instead of saying, ‘We are all in everybody’s reality all the time.'”
In other words, The Council seems to be saying their choice of pronouns has less to do with differences between us and them, and more to do with making themselves more easily understood by the largest number of people.
The Council says when they use the words ‘you’ and ‘us,’ many people don’t understand they’re referring to the same thing because they see us as spiritual beings just like they are spiritual beings.
The Council suggests meditating on their answers to this question and says it will open many doors and pose many new questions.
Jan also asks about beings like angels that interact with us from a non-physical reality, but we’ve decided to answer this question in a future post.
Listen to The Council’s answer to this question in the 6-minute session below and let us know your thoughts.
During a recent session The Council took the opportunity to speak in general about the subject of abortion because so many readers have asked about it. This post is devoted to that session. An audio recording of this session is included at the end of this post.
The Council notes that most questions on abortion center on the theme of feeling guilty and the need to feel forgiven. And they want everyone involved in making a decision about an abortion to understand that whatever their decision, whether to abort, or have the child and keep it or give it away, all the souls involved have agreed on this decision and there is nothing to feel guilty about.
They say this isn’t easy to understand when you are going through it because your experience in this lifetime is part of your personality and what you believe about it. But The Council suggests when you can begin to believe you are an eternal spirit in your physical body and the creator of all you experience, this difficulty becomes less burdensome.
The Council says whether you decide to abort a child or not, this is part of an agreement you made with the soul of this child to have this experience and your higher selves are very happy about whatever outcome you choose.
The Council hopes you will experience relief when you hear abortion isn’t a horrible thing and you haven’t killed a spirit or put an end to a life, because we are eternal. They say we come to this Earth reality for experiences that are emotional and physical, and they remind us to always look for the love in each experience. In the case of abortion, you giving love to a spirit that wanted to have this experience.
The Council briefly discusses the subject of giving birth to a child with disabilities, and how you are giving this child an opportunity to experience a life that it and you have chosen.
The Council finishes with a reminder it’s your privilege in every situation to find that you are spirit in your physical body, see others for who they are as spirit, and look for ways to show the love you are.
Thank you for taking time to read this post. Listen to the entire 14-minute session below to hear all The Council’s advice, and be sure to let us know what you think.
This post is about a question from a reader named Tanya who asks The Council if she had a life lesson in self-forgiveness to learn from an abortion.
The Council says there’s a life lesson in just about everything we experience as challenging or where there’s a difficult decision to make. They agree Tanya’s abortion was a life lesson, and while abortion is often about learning self-forgiveness, in Tanya’s case it was more about learning to let go of a situation when the timing isn’t right, being okay with her decision, and learning that whatever she chooses is the right choice.
The Council asks Tanya if, rather than just focusing on forgiveness, if her abortions (The Council feels there were two) have taught her something about facing challenges after the abortion. And their advise is to see where she is in the moment and go with the decision that feels best to her.
The Council says post traumatic stress comes when you don’t quite know how to be okay with the decisions you’ve made. The more Tanya learns how to let let go and move on with her life, the more she’ll learn to accept herself and have more confidence in her choices. The Council also says as Tanya learns she’s a spirit in her physical body, she’ll become more okay with her decisions.
Bob asks if Tanya’s asking for forgiveness from the soul of the unborn child was for Tanya or the unborn child. And The Council says if she felt forgiven by this spirit it would help Tanya feel better and she could move on with her life.
When Bob commented it was his understanding from previous sessions that the soul of the unborn child was already forgiving, The Council agrees. But they add that Tanya wasn’t aware of this at that time. So she asked for and received this forgiveness.
Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to benefit from all their guidance is this session.
(This session was one of two we did so the recording seem to end abruptly.)
This post is about questions from a 43-year-old reader named Sunshine who is single and has a strong desire to have her first child, but her attempts have been unsuccessful so far. She wants to know from The Council if this is possible and if she’s being punished for having two abortions 20 years earlier.
First The Council asks if Sunshine can be okay if she doesn’t become a mother. And they tell her there’s no outside source that’s punishing her for the abortions. She is entirely responsible for any sense of punishment or guilt she feels from this.
When Bob asks The Council if they think having a child is in the cards for Sunshine because they ask if she can be okay without having children, they reply that Sunshine creates what’s in the cards for her, no one else.
The Council asks Sunshine to remember that before coming into this reality she planned to go through these two abortions with the souls involved, and there was nothing disturbing about this to those spirits. They knew they’d be participating in the abortions for the experience and to help Sunshine, and everything went the way it was supposed to go.
The Council says many of the lessons we experience in this life, we plan before we get here. And there are spirits who agree to play their part in these lessons. When Sunshine is able to release any feeling of sadness or guilt or thinking of wrong-doing about these abortions, then she’ll be able to create a new child.
When Bob asks if adoption is an option for Sunshine if she continues to have difficulty getting pregnant, The Council says of course. But they quickly add that Sunshine can have a physical birth if she believes she’s the creator of her reality.
The Council says nothing is impossible if you really want it. Put yourself in the state of joy and happiness, and be grateful for each experience you come through that inspires you to want something even more. The Council says by knowing you can do this and by staying in the energy of joy and love, the creation of it becomes possible.
The Council says many people believe it becomes more difficult to get pregnant the older you get. But they remind us we are powerful spirits who can create anything we want in our lives. They tell Sunshine not to worry about her age and they tell her to work on forgiveness, happiness, gratitude, and moving forward in her life.
The Council sees it’s very, very possible for Sunshine to give birth to a child. And they remind the rest of us who want to create anything in our lives to find ways to feel grateful and happy for what we have. And they advise us to look forward, adding to that happiness, and move ahead with our mind and our feelings, always in the energy of love.
This 7-minute session is packed with advice for Sunshine and the rest of us. Listen to the recording below and let us know what you think.
This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks why we need a mother’s womb to reincarnate into this lifetime. According to The Council we don’t need a mother’s womb to reincarnate, but this is something we’ve chosen at this particular time because it’s a physical and emotional experience we desire.
The Council says in the beginning when spirit came into this reality the womb wasn’t needed. Spirit would project itself into trees and animals by an act of creation. After a while we desired a change and decided to experience this reality by being born from a mother’s womb to know the physical sensation of this process.
The Council says Earth is a teaching ground for physical and emotional experience, and at this particular time when you chose to come here, being born through your mother’s womb is part of the knowledge you acquire. They also say there are spirits who take the place of people who no longer wish to be in this reality, but there are still lessons to be learned by other people from these people. And The Council says there are angels who pop in and out of physical form to help people, and experience some knowledge while they’re here. And the mother’s womb isn’t needed in these instances.
The Council emphasizes that life is constantly changing and while we want to experience birth through the mother’s womb at this time, they also say we’ll eventually create a way to enter this reality where the mother’s womb isn’t necessary.
Bob’s curiosity about The Council’s comments regarding angels prompted some additional questions and some interesting answers about the bodies the angels incarnate into, the number of angels that choose to inhabit physical form at one time, and the amount of time they spend here.
The Council briefly touches on the subject of cloning and goes on to say they think we’ll go beyond cloning to the point where we can experience birth without the mother’s womb as an adult or a child, simply by willing this process of creation through our mind.
The Council emphasizes that our freedom and our choices are limitless and it’s their hope we’ll go on to experience different ways to incarnate into this reality, and they remind us whatever we wish to create is possible.
They also remind us there are people who choose to leave this reality very peacefully just by willing it when they feel they have learned enough, rather than create a disease or an accident.
The Council finishes with a reminder to enjoy your life, be grateful; stay in positive choices, positive actions, and positive reactions; and continue to serve your purpose which is to spread love everywhere. And they close with a reminder they are always with you.
This was an exciting 17-minute session that touches on several noteworthy points about the power of who we are as spiritual beings in a physical body. Listen to the entire session below and let us know what you think.
This post answers questions about moving to Ireland from a reader named D. Back in July, D. mentioned in an earlier question for The Council that her heart keeps pointing her to Ireland, a place she knows nothing about, and The Council encouraged her to visit.
Now she’s returned from that visit and says she connected to the people and the land in a way she’s never felt before. Her heart is telling her to move, but her mind has a lot of doubt and fear about leaving the US, and she’s raising a child on her own. What if she goes and finds she can’t provide an environment of stability for her child?
The Council says this longing is D’s spirit telling her she has an adventure to go through in Ireland. She needs to be there to experience a different kind of life. When she thinks about this move and her heart is full of joy, she won’t be lead astray by her guidance. If she’s created a stable environment for her child in the US, The Council says she knows how to accomplish this and it won’t matter where she is.
The Council points out D. has created her connection to Ireland, and with her desire to go back she can create a way to make this happen. Her thoughts and feelings about going back and having a brand new life will bring into this reality what she’s creating in the reality of her mind.
The Council asks D. to trust and do the work of thinking and feeling her way back to Ireland, and things will come together that make this move possible. They remind D. the universe supported her on her first trip and will continue to support her in finding a way to make a return possible.
D. raises her concern about how this move will affect her child. The Council asks if D. feels Ireland will bring her much happiness, and if her child experiences her being happy, does she understand her child will also experience this happiness.
D. says her mind is pulling her in one direction and her heart and soul are pulling her in another. And The Council tells her they feel she’s already received the answer to her questions by the way she felt when she was in Ireland the first time. They say the challenge of doubt and fear is there for D. to change it into something more loving. Can she acknowledge her doubt and say she’ll make the trip anyway? By taking that leap of faith she will begin to see this desire come into her life.
Those of you familiar with The Council’s guidance from our other posts may think it a little unusual for them to make such a hearty recommendation. Ordinarily we find their guidance is more balanced. So when I said to them it sounds like they’re encouraging D. to revisit Ireland, they enthusiastically respond, “Why not?” Why would D. deny herself the prospect of another joyful visit and perhaps a permanent move there? And that was the end of our session.
Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council below for their full guidance.
This post is about a question from Asher who asks why it’s necessary to go through hardships, troubles, accidents, pain, loss, and more in order for his soul to grow? Asher wishes he could enroll in a cosmic school where spiritual growth is achieved through positive experience.
The Council says it isn’t necessary to go through hardships. They say they’re a choice. They ask Asher if he knows it wasn’t his intention to create a life he finds difficult. His intention was to create interesting experiences, and then by remembering who he is as a spiritual being and looking at these experiences in a more loving way, they become more loving and much easier to experience.
When Bob asks why Asher doesn’t seem to feel this love, The Council says it’s because he doesn’t understand his purpose for experiencing these challenges and who he is as a spiritual being. He doesn’t remember he created these experiences so he could have the fun of learning to change them into more loving experiences.
The Council says when we remind ourselves we are spirit in a physical body, we automatically begin to look at our experiences more lovingly, even if it’s difficult in the moment. And they promise as you meet each challenge and bring in the vibration of love, this vibration makes it easier for others to have a similar experience.
Asher says he feels sad that only the soul benefits from these spiritual lessons and not the human. The Council asks Asher if he realizes the spirit, soul, and human are one, and spirit will not grow unless its human part goes through these challenging situations. They say when the spirit grows it’s because our human part has gone though an experience, changed the way we think about it, and learned from this experience.
The Council reminds us there are many good things we’ve chosen to experience and to be grateful, and this will help change your vibration for the better.
The Council says Asher has created these hardships so he can learn how to go through them, experience them, and change them into more loving experiences by thinking better feeling thoughts.
For those of us who have a difficult time believing we are spirit in our physical bodies The Council says this is the #1 reason many spirits have come at this time to make connections and get the message out to remember who you are as spirit. They say even if we just pretend we are spirit, eventually we wonder what this means and understanding gradually becomes possible.
This post is inspired by a question from Maria who asks if she’s crazy for believing she’ll marry a man she describes as her soulmate, even though he broke up with her a year ago and stopped speaking with her two months ago when he got together with someone else.
The Council says you’re never crazy for having a desire and it’s always good to honor your wishes, but sometimes you need to look at the whole situation and ask why you need to be with this particular person.
The Council says a soulmate is an important person who agrees to come into your life to work something out. They are not necessarily the greatest love of your life. Sometimes they can be a friend, a family member, or someone you just feel a closeness to. On some level Maria has agreed to have this experience with this man she’s calling her soulmate, and for now they say this relationship is over.
Maria says she knows she’ll be together in this lifetime with this person she thinks of as a soulmate, and The Council asks her if she really believes this or if it’s just something she’s hanging onto. They ask whether she’d want to create another soulmate to be with her for part or all of her life. And they add that the idea is to love everyone as you have them in your life for however long they’re in your life.
The Council says if there’s something Maria feels she needs to complete in this lifetime with this person, he can choose to return to her. But they say it’s important to understand whether this person returns or not, Maria has challenges and happiness waiting for her in the rest of this lifetime. The question is whether she will take advantage of these situations or she’ll sit back and become bitter if this person doesn’t return. The Council advises to look for this person to return if she wants, but to also look for someone new in the meantime.
The Council advises Maria to look where this journey takes her now. That’s how she pulls in what her spirit has planned for her. When Maria focuses on the love she had with this person whether he returns or not, this contributes to a more positive experience for both of them and he may desire to return. But if Maria can be available to whatever comes along, she may bring in something so wonderful that she won’t want the original person back.
The Council says the situations Maria has experienced have been put there on purpose by her spirit for her to learn what she wants. With new emotions, thoughts, and feelings they ask her to now create them in her life.
And The Council finishes the session by saying they see great happiness for Maria.
Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of the session below to get all The Council’s guidance for Maria. Let us know what you think.
This post answers several questions from an anonymous reader named D, who says it’s been a while since she last spoke to us, but feels she’s moved mountains since then and is finally learning to heal from within. D continues that once she opened her heart and started asking questions, she discovered a new world that taught her about life and her purpose on Earth.
D’s has worked in New York for 16 years and says she never realized how negative an environment it was until she became a more positive person. The Council says D speaks of negativity as if it’s something unwanted, but there are many many people who can’t get to a positive place until they experience negativity. And when they become positive there’s great appreciation for what the negative has taught them.
D finds it’s easier to connect with her higher self when she’s in her comfort zone. And The Council says it’s in this quiet time you can hear your guides, stay connected to source, and get help with what you experience as negativity. They go on to say that you create this negativity to see how you can bring the love you are in spirit into these situations. They advise sitting for 5-10 minutes a day in this quiet and she will hear what she needs to hear, feel what she needs to feel, and connect to who she truly is.
The Council says many people don’t understand what most people call negativity is really something we as spirit have brought into our reality. What we consider annoying people or situations are really wonderful souls who choose to be part of our negativity and allow us to see these situations differently, bring love into them, and grow.
D asks if prayer, meditation, and guidance are the best ways to communicate with spirit guides when we need advice, and The Council says yes. When I asked the difference between the three The Council said prayer is asking and talking, meditation is listening to your higher self, and intuition is the voice of your higher self.
D asks how she can teach others when they’re so close-minded. The Council says people aren’t close-minded; they are searching and growing at their own pace. Teaching is more than words, and some people aren’t ready to hear what you say. You teach by your actions and by example. When you show love, when you show how you’ve grown and how you handle things differently, that teaches more than words.
D says her heart keeps pointing her to Ireland, a place she’s never been and knows nothing about, and asks if there’s a reason her spirit keeps pointing her in that direction. The Council says if she feels this in her heart, this is her intuition and why wouldn’t she go.
The Council suggests D move forward with the main reason she came into physical reality: to bring the love she is in spirit into it. Her negativity is there to teach her to turn it around and help her grow. It may be hard for her to believe that when she looses patience or is angry with someone, it is another part of her in this other person, coming forward to give her more understanding. We are all connected.
Listen to the entire 26-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance during this wonderful session.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Diana who says that The Council always reminds us we are spirit and we are love and asks where evil comes from, why does it exist, and why would someone choose to experience being evil in a physical body?
The Council’s initial response was that evil is created from our thoughts and beliefs. When I (Bob) said we might need a little more than that, they elaborated.
The Council says we are here to experience any reality we wish to learn from and some of us choose to experience negativity and evil until we realize we created it and we have the ability to change it. Look at these situations as opportunities to learn and grow.
The Council says everything we experience in this physical reality that we consider evil is only here because we wanted the experience of changing it into something more loving. You want to remember who you really are as a spiritual being in a physical body and you have the ability to change evil and bring love into these situations.
When Diana comments there are some people who don’t appear to have a soul or a drop of love in them, The Council replies that everyone has a soul and everyone is love, but what keeps them from experiencing this is they have forgotten who they truly are. The challenge is to remember this.
When Diana asks how someone who manifests evil can be spirit and love The Council reminds us that spirit and human are one being who loves itself so much it allows us to experience whatever we choose while in the human body, and find our way back to who we are as spirit.

This post is inspired by a brief, but powerful question from Margaret, who asks: What do my soul, heart, and ego need? It’s a short question, but The Council’s answer is full of insight that applies to many, if not all of us.
The first thing The Council reminds us is that it’s good to realize we are spirit in a physical body, and that we are here to bring love into all situations we experience. This was our main purpose for coming here and they go on to say there isn’t anyone here who doesn’t have a spirit with them to guide them.
The Council says we’ve chosen our challenging situations because we want the experience of turning them around by looking at them with the love we are, and experiencing them differently.
They remind us our most powerful tool is choice. Every day in every situation you have the choice how you’ll handle these circumstances, and how you’ll move through every experience.
When I (Bob) point out their guidance for Margaret seems a little general, The Council says their guidance is what Margaret needs to know at this particular time, and it’s specific to her needs.
They suggest she read many of the spiritual books available and they mention by name those written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel. They close by reminding Margaret she is loved, and she has The Council’s support and blessing.

This post is inspired by a question from Jyoti who asks if she shared a life with her stillborn child? Jyoti says a lot of her family have died and she wonders if it was one of those souls wanting to come back and be part of the family again?
The Council says Jyoti has a strong connection to this soul and they have shared many lives together, but they don’t see this particular life as one of them. In a life as far back as Atlantis she worked with this soul as a teacher. During the early American Indians they left their tribe and went out on their own. During the first World War there was deciphering messages and carrying information to others. In this lifetime this soul came forward to help Jyoti understand something about this pregnancy.
The Counsel says Jyoti has a strong connection with this soul and she can connect with it through meditation to get information about this life and past lives. Instead of feeling loss for the child Jyoti experiences support and guidance from this soul. If it’s wanted, Jyoti will have another opportunity to give birth to this soul, but there is much to learn from this soul while it’s still in spirit.
Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council for all the details.
(Note: Bob mentions the fetus was aborted in the recording, but Jyoti mentions in a comment that this child was stillborn, not aborted. We imagine from The Council’s point of view they consider that the fetus aborted this pregnancy because it chose not to come into physical reality while Jyoti and her husband were moving around, but Jyoti feels the distinction between abortion and stillborn is important and aught to be made. We apologize for this error.)

This post is inspired by a question from Asher who asks The Council why it’s necessary to go through pain and hardship in order for our soul to grow? He feels sad human beings aren’t capable of anything else and he wishes to enroll in a cosmic school where spiritual growth is a positive experience.
The Counsel says Asher is already in that school and it’s not necessary to create situations where growth only takes place through suffering and struggle. He has the choice to change his life through his beliefs.
If Asher feels the only way his soul can grow is through suffering, that is what he’ll create. But The Council says we come to this world to grow in love, not through suffering. And as we stay in the vibration of love, less struggle will occur.
The Council advises Asher to take his greatest power, which is choice, and change the way he sees this. In response to his comment that humans aren’t capable of anything else The Council replies that humans are also spirit. They are one and whatever you go through, you learn from it together.
This session is only about 5-minutes long, but there’s lots of valuable information in it. Listen to what The Council has to say for the full story.

This post is inspired by questions from Ana who asks The Counsel about new challenges she faces in her life, to which The Counsel replies these challenges are her own creation. Ana goes on to ask if fighting makes sense in order to maintain her situation. And she asks if she’ll become bi-polar again.
The Counsel reminds Ana we come to this reality to create love, not suffer and go through hard times. But because of what we believe and how we think, we find these situations coming up in our lives.
The Counsel says when she feels it’s a fight to save a relationship or a reality she’s created, Ana’s not seeing through the eyes of who she truly is. They ask her to look at what brought her to this relationship in the first place and they remind her she has a choice whether to leave or stay.
And there’s the question of whether she becomes bi-polar again and The Counsel says this was also her choice. They ask what she’s learned from being this and they encourage her to look at it differently. They say if Ana can change the belief she needs this then she can create something else.
Lastly The Counsel reminds Ana she’s spirit in a physical body and to bring love into every situation.
