Should My Son and I Leave My Husband?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, SoulSeekingNirvana, who says she’s had issues with her husband in the past and they’ve remained together in spite of these issues. Currently he’s changed from his past behavior, but SoulSeekingNirvana can’t seem to forget when she needed him the most and his behavior was the worst at those times.

The Council says there’s a problem when SoulSeekingNirvana can’t forgive her husband and let go of these issues. And they ask how she can move on from that?

SoulSeekingNirvana says she’s been thinking about living independently with her son for some time now, but she’s worried about her son not having his father around. She sees two options. One is to continue living the way she does now and try to forget the past. The other is to live with her son separated from her husband.

The Council asks SoulSeekingNirvana if she can stay with her husband and not focus on how he wasn’t there for her. Can you focus on staying with your husband, making things more pleasant, and your son will have his father. Can you be loving and compassionate with your husband? Can you be caring for this man?

If you’re unable to do this, your son will always feel the disharmony between you and your husband. If you think you’re staying with your husband because of your son, and there’s fighting or negative feelings in your relationship, this isn’t a good solution and it’s time for you to move on. Your son will learn different lessons without a father.

As the creator of what goes on in your life, what do you want? Do you want to stay with your husband or do you want to be independent and live with your son without your husband? This is the question you need to ask yourself.

The Council says when you come into this reality and create challenges in your lives to grow from, it’s all about your ability to repeatedly experience forgiveness and show love. When you look at your husband, know he’s a spirit who’s come into this reality to learn lessons. Can you send love to your husband, one spirit to another, and help each other overcome the issues in your marriage? Can you have a nice relationship? If you’re going to continue being angry with your husband and go over and over how he wasn’t there for you, you’re not moving in the right direction.

SoulSeekingNirvana closed by asking if she decides to leave her husband, should she live alone or with her parents who can help with her son? The Council asks how the relationship is with her parents. Is it a safe, happy environment? If you don’t like your parents and your quarrel with them, you’re putting yourself and your son in a bad environment. If you need to be on your own, how do you see this? Can you create a loving relationship between you and your son?

The Council says coming into this reality with these choices, you’re looking for a way to get to a higher vibration. Not forgiving your husband doesn’t get you to this higher vibration. Forgiving, trying again if you can, and loving your husband, your son, or your parents will get you to this higher vibration.

Don’t ever blame your decision on whether to leave your husband on your son. This is your choice. You’re the one who has put yourself in the position to learn and grow more. Your son should be free from blame. He is a spirit who agreed to be part of your experience and help you grow. And we grow by showing love and compassion.

The Council closes by saying SoulSeekingNirvana’s husband has his own lessons to learn, but they believe he’ll make progress in the area of showing love, but the choice is his. Where he is on his path now, he’s headed in this direction.

How Can I Re-Fix My Teeth and Jaw Problems?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, LongJourney, who says growing up I had terrible teeth. I was teased about them and would cover my mouth every time I smiled. When I was 20 years old I got braces and when the braces came off I was told by many people I had an awesome smile. I finally felt more confident and had something about myself to love.

I’m now 37 years old and my teeth have misaligned, my jaw is clenching, I look different, I can’t chew or close my mouth properly, and I’m scared my teeth are chipping away. I feel the one thing I loved about myself is being taken away from me.

The Council asks who is taking your beautiful smile away from you? When your jaw tightens it’s because you have a certain idea about how life should be. You’re not flexible in your thinking. Why do things need to be a certain way?

The reversal of your once beautiful smile is something you wished to experience when you were in spirit before you came into this lifetime. You wanted to find a way to love and enjoy yourself, which you did at the time your braces came off. Now that your teeth have shifted your spirit says, can I still love myself. I did for a long time. Why would my teeth shifting make me lose that love for myself?

You can fix this problem by beginning to think of all the times your braces made you look beautiful. Go into the memory of what this felt like. Instead of being in fear and anger that your teeth have shifted and something has taken away your beautiful smile, you – in spirit – are taking your beautiful smile away so you can learn for yourself the love that’s within you.

Appreciate the time you had feeling good with the smile you loved. Remember this thing and think about it, not demanding it has to be that way again, but in a gentler way where you’d like to create that again. The Council says if you feel thankful you were able to have braces, and thankful for being shown the love within you, and if you can stay in that wonderful vibration the right team of people will come into your life to fix your jaw and teeth and you’ll have that feeling of love again. But you have to create this at a vibrational level first.

You wanted to come into this lifetime to learn that love and beauty is within you. Understand it’s not the way you physically look, but in appreciating yourself. The way you planned your life, your higher self allowed you to get that feeling of love so when you came to the part of your experience where your teeth misaligned again, you had those loving memories you could remember and go back to.

LongJourney asks if her mouth problem is related to past lives. The Council says in Egypt as a young child you had rotten teeth yet you were very happy and your teeth never seemed to make you feel bad about yourself. In your current lifetime you wanted to see how you’d handle the same problem. Would you be as happy and free with almost the same physical problem as you were in the lifetime in Egypt?

LongJourney asks if these problems are caused by past life or spiritual issues, how can I manifest them to a lesser degree? The Council reminds LongJourney to go back to the time when the braces fixed her teeth and remember what this felt like. Now you must find the answer of how to love and feel good about yourself again, and you must find this answer before you can make the changes you desire.

Know you are the creator. You created a beautiful mouth once. You can create it again. And The Council reminds LongJourney they can never do this from the vibration of being angry because her teeth have shifted. Rigid thinking will never get you to the place where you realize there’s someone out there who’s able to give you the results you desire. Practice meditation. Go into the memories over and over and feel how happy you were when people complimented you on your smile. Things will change.

Listen to the 13-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for LongJourney and the rest of us, and let know what you feel about it.

Was I Right to Divorce My Husband?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Laurie, who asks if she was right to divorce her husband. Laurie read another post on our blog where The Council says you can create a long and happy married life if that’s what you wish to create. Laurie says this is what she wanted, but lost trust in her husband because of his financial manipulations. The Council asks Laurie how she can wish for a happy life when she states that she doesn’t trust her husband? When you are in the vibration of mistrust, you could never create a happy marriage.

In your marriage were you able to appreciate how your husband was towards you? Were there things you loved about this marriage and thought about over and over? Or did it get to a point where you didn’t trust your husband, didn’t like his behavior, and felt he had the power to make you feel good or bad about yourself?

When you go down a negative road and you have thoughts like: he drove me crazy, he lied, maybe he cheated on you, and maybe he hid financial aspects of your lives – if you felt these things throughout the marriage and there’s no room to appreciate any part of your married life, you can never have a happy marriage.

If you were miserable in this marriage and felt there was dishonesty, how would you change the marriage to be the way you wanted it to be? If you were able to look at your husband and say: A, B, C was done, I see where he was coming from, I can see why he did these things, and I realize he has his lessons – can we talk about that? Can we try to understand and change these behaviors? If there was a possibility you could do this and let go of what was already done, there could have been a change in your marriage. But if you feel the hurt was so horrible and that’s all you felt, you wouldn’t be able to change your relationship.

Laurie writes that she lost trust in her husband because of his financial manipulation, his telling their university-aged children she was crazy, sharing details of their intimate relations with other people, as well as other unspecified  reasons. Her husband didn’t want to go to counseling and accused her of overreacting. She told him she deserved to be treated better and ended the marriage. The Council asks Laurie if you believe you deserve a better marriage and there was so much dishonesty, why do you still question if you did the right thing by divorcing your husband?

Laurie asks The Council if they feel under the circumstances she’s described if her marriage could have been saved? The Council says if Laurie was open to a different way of perceiving this marriage, if you knew what you wanted and what boundaries could change, if you’re able to come from a place of forgiveness and love, you’d bring the vibration of change into your  surroundings. This would be felt by your husband as a spiritual being and then the spirits within both of you would know whether you’re able to change the marriage based on what you both planned to experience when you were in spirit before coming into this lifetime. But The Council adds they feel where Laurie was when she was still in the marriage and where she is now, it wouldn’t have been possible change her marriage into a happy one.

The Council says now it’s wise to go back and see what Laurie has learned in this marriage. Take your focus off being hurt and off the memories of everything that happened in the marriage that was unpleasant and begin to think about what you’d like to experience in a new relationship. What would you like to experience moving forward? What would you like your lessons to be now? What would you like your communication to be like in a new relationship? By letting go of the hurt and concentrating on what you’d like moving forward, this will change your vibration so that the kind of new person you bring in will match that vibration.

Be kind to other people, help other people, send love to other people, and that’s the kind of person you’ll bring into your life. The universe will not judge you. It will send into your life people that speak like you, that think like you, that have traits like you, and together you’ll learn how to grow.

Everyone has lessons with each other. Will you be open to helping the kind of person that comes into your life and helping them grow and experience what they need? Would you be vulnerable to ask for what you need without thinking about being hurt and whatever you experienced in the past?

Watch your words. Watch your thoughts. Watch your actions. And however you can, get yourself into the vibration of love. You can do this by memories, by thinking about the way you’d like your future to be, by appreciating what you have around you now. Anything that will get you into a positive vibration will help you move forward.

Listen to the entire 9-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Laurie and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it, or ask an unrelated question.

Why Haven’t My Breast Developed?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Depressed05, who says they think due to malnutrition her body didn’t develop breasts during puberty. She’s tried a lot of things to make her breasts grow, but nothing seems to work and it’s taking a toll on her self-esteem and confidence.

The Council says all the things Depressed has tried to make her breasts grow have been things outside herself. They say the answer is within you. You’ll never create the breasts you desire until you feel grateful for things you already have.

The Council says Depressed created this situation with her breasts when she was in spirit before she came into this lifetime and it was to learn acceptance. They ask her to think about what she’s able to appreciate about her body in her current life. What parts of your body are you able to love? And they ask Depressed to imagine or pretend you look the way you wish your body would look.

Every part of your body, down to your very cells, is listening to what you’re thinking and the universe will give you what you focus your attention on. If your focus is negative the universe will offer you what you consider negative experiences, and if your focus is positive the universe will offer you positive experiences. If you’re miserable and can’t accept your body, and you think about these things over and over, the universe will say, “Oh, this is making her miserable and she doesn’t like the way this looks. Let’s give her some more.”

The first step is to think of what you’d like, and to do this you need to be in a higher vibration. Think about what you like about your body. And if this is too difficult you can concentrate on anything you like or appreciate because when you appreciate something, the universe will send you more things to appreciate.

Once you get into the vibration of appreciating, from there you can create the changes you want in your life. Appreciate what you have, and that you’re the creator, and that you can change your life. Things will come together to make you appreciate the way you look and your perception, once it changes, will bring you what you’re looking for. Physically you’re able to create the change in your life that you’re looking for, but not from the vibration you’re in right now. What things are going on in your life that make you feel good? Think about this and stay in that vibration.

Your situation with your breasts not developing happened because you asked for this to happen when you were in spirit. You wanted to learn to accept the things around you, accept other people, but mainly to accept yourself and to find anything that reminds you that you’re a spirit living in a physical body. You are pure energy and energy can change form. Get in the right vibration and you can begin to see this change happen.

It will help you to put on clothes, stand in front of a full length mirror, and take a good look at yourself. See what clothing you wear that makes you feel better. What colors help you feel better? What gives you comfort when you put it on and you like the way you look? Find anything you enjoy. Eat whatever foods you wish to eat and know it’s filling your body with good feelings and vibrations. You’re taking care of your whole body. Once you begin loving yourself, and doing things to take care of yourself and appreciate yourself, how you feel about yourself will change.

Listen to the audio recording of our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Depressed and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it. We feel this guidance to find things in your life to appreciate rather than focusing on what you don’t want in your life is key to improving your life and we appreciate the way The Council lovingly points this out to Depressed.

Why Do I Regret My Last Abortion?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Theresia, who asks why she regrets having her last abortion?

The Council points out that Theresia says she was on medication during this pregnancy, and she and her husband were financially and mentally unstable at the time. The Council says this medication would have caused a birth defect in the child and the spirit of this child agreed not to be born under these circumstances. And the child didn’t want to go through a life of of struggle and lack because of your financial and mental situation.

The Council says Theresia’s desire to have children is very real and they ask her what she and her husband have done to change their current situation so they can become more independent from her parents and be financially able to have a child? This is something they spiritually agreed to do in this lifetime. The Council says there was also a spiritual agreement to learn how to support yourselves, have goals, and move forward. What are you doing to change your future so you can have the next child you become pregnant with?

The Council advises being excited about having a child rather than being indecisive about it. They say the energy you create around this child will have an effect on your lifetime and the lifetime of the child.

The Council says it would be good to look at your careers. Is there training that’s needed for advancement or a new career. But The Council points out what’s most important is to change your thinking about being stuck and being the victim of circumstances, and know you have the power to change this thinking and these circumstances. Goals and ideas are needed. You need something to move toward. What would you and your husband like your life to be like? What steps can you take right now to lead you in this direction?

Once you begin to have a plan and start working towards it, you connect with who you truly are as spiritual beings. You’ll have more energy and can play with more ideas. You are the creator of your life. See how you and your husband can support each other to move forward. Change your thinking and be excited about the future. The Council says they don’t see that sort of thinking at this time.

The Council says the simplest books to read in order to connect with spirit and feel good about themselves are the Emmanuel books by Pat Rodegast. Once you connect with spirit, everything begins to fall into place. These books explain what is, and why. They explain how everything is planned in spirit and there are no mistakes. Life is a wonderful learning arena. And at the end of your life when you pass back into spirit, it’s a wonderful experience where you learn from your life.

As you begin to connect with spirit and know there’s more to life than what you’re experiencing in your present, this connection will lift your vibration. And as you go to a higher vibration your life has to change. You’ll begin to bring in better experiences. Once you make this spiritual connection, the lower energy that’s currently in your life won’t be a match for you any more and will not be drawn to you. As your vibration lifts, the circumstances of your life will also lift to match your new vibration.

Listen to the entire 11-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Theresia and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Better-feeling Thoughts for Relationships & Employment

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Fernanda, who says it’s difficult for her to have any sort of relationship or employment.

The Council says when you think time is running out or that you’re dying, your vibration makes it difficult for you to create wonderful things for yourself. They say Fernanda must try to bring herself into the vibration of love, joy, and happiness any way she can. That is where she’ll create the type of relationship and employment she’s looking for.

The Council says when Fernanda finds herself thinking she’s running out of time, acknowledge these thoughts and then remind herself she’s a spirit in a physical body and she’ll never run out of time. If she’s unable to create what she desires in this lifetime, she will have other lifetimes to create it. But her thoughts are holding her back. Going forward, focus on what she desires in her life.

The Council specifically suggests Fernanda focus on what she is bringing to the relationship she desires. Go over in her mind the kind of person she wants to be with and focus on what she can do for this person. Focus on how they build their future together.

If she can think these thoughts they will bring in the feeling of not being sure what will happen, but she can expect beautiful things because she feels differently. The Council suggests imagining a gold light within her heart shining around her and the people who match this beautiful vibration will be attracted to her.

The Council sees Fernanda is able to make something of the career she’s prepared for, but her feelings of doubt and that her life is going nowhere is holding this progress back. Find one little thing in this career that she enjoys doing and focus on that, with the thought that other opportunities will come along.

The Council sees the relationship is a high priority for Fernanda. As she’s able to focus happily on her new relationship, being in that vibration of joy will change her situation in her career for the better also. The Council says if Fernanda is able to change the vibration she carries with her, everything around her must change.

Listen below to our full 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Fernanda and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Healing With Crystals

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.

How to Love Yourself

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

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

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

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

Why Must I Go Through Hardships for My Soul to Grow?

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.

Abortion and Creation

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Doesn’t Know How to Change This Reality

This post is inspired by a question from Diana who says she doesn’t like the reality she’s experiencing and doesn’t know how to change it. All her life she’s believed true love is the answer to every question and most of her life has been a quest to find this love. But fate keeps bringing the wrong people into her life.

She says it’s been so many years of loss and pain she can’t imagine a different life, can’t go on even for the sake of her child, and can’t see any light at the end of tunnel. Diana asks what’s the point of continuing to live in this reality if you’re never going to find what you seek?

The Council agrees with Diana that true love is the answer to every question, but they remind us it must start within her. They say love is the beginning of the change she’s looking for, but she must learn to love herself first.

If Diana wants more loving people in her life she has to change her vibration in order to attract them. We choose what we experience to learn from it. If it’s a difficult, unloving, or hurtful experience we’ve planned, we’ll remember how to change it by bringing love into it.

Start by finding something to appreciate about what she’s experiencing. Do little things that make her happy. Find the parts of herself that are waiting to be recognized. If she wasn’t ready for this change then The Council wouldn’t be having this discussion with her.

Think about all the good things Diana has done while she’s experienced this difficult time. She’s at the point where she wants to create her life differently and The Council sees this as a wonderful step. Find parts of herself she loves and admire them. No matter how hard she’s created her life, she has come through it and is ready to change it.

As she appreciates her life Diana will have the energy to go on and she will get more clarity as she moves forward. As she experiences this gratitude and love for herself, life will get better.

Listen to the entire 19-minute answer to Diana questions for the full impact of The Council’s wonderful answer.

What is the Name of My Spirit Guides?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lola’s question

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

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


Listening to the audio recording

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

You are here to bring love into physical reality

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

Loving is service to others

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

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

A Question about Portals – an Answer About Creating Your Reality

During a recent session with The Council, at the end of a discussion on ancient historical records that were predicted will be found near the Sphinx in Egypt, I (Bob) asked why people who’ve been looking for these records for a century or more have not been able to find them. The Council gave 2 interesting reasons. First:

“Because much of what will be discovered will be powerful information that, at this time in history, we are not ready for; it would be misused.

“And so as spirit evolves and brings what it has planned – more love – and peace begins to be more present, and [there is] more understanding and more unity between all of the peoples, all of the nations that are here, then the documents will be released.”

–The Council
(The formatting above throughout this post represents The Council’s comments during our session. Text [in brackets] in these quotations has been added to improve readability and clarity when this seems useful.)

When I asked for clarification about the process of releasing these documents, and how something that doesn’t appear findable can be found, The Council gave the second reason.

“We believe our friend, Esther [Hicks], that channels Abraham, has explained it very nicely when she lost her gold pen, and yet it was there all the time.

“So when the belief that it is not lost, and that this information is there and it is ready to be discovered… when someone feels they will make this great discovery and work towards it, it will be discovered. It is all there.”

Powerful Information

In a session a few years ago, The Council suggested Atlantis was destroyed by the misuse of power (this seems consistent with other sources of information on Atlantis), and I asked if the potential for misuse of the power in the undiscovered records is anything like what contributed to the destruction of Atlantis.

“Yes. It was suggested because that also needs to be recognized.

“When the information [is discovered] on how to utilize this power, and how the power is not just in these crystals or in this form of vibration that is conjured up, the truth will come forward that the power comes from within, in each person.

“And so that is, as what would be said in your time, very heavy information.”

The Council imitated the way people sometimes exaggerate their voice in a low tone when they refer to heavy information, which I found very humorous. Ordinarily I’d be probably be interested in asking for more information about the power of the information in the undiscovered records, about the crystals, and about conjured vibration, but the thought that came to me was a conversation with Cynthia earlier in the day about a client of hers who had lived in a house he described as seriously haunted.

What is a Portal?

Cynthia mentioned she received guidance for her client that the house was some sort of portal for disturbing energies that were coming into his physical reality from other dimensions. But neither of us understood this very well, and I found myself asking The Council what they can tell us about portals. The rest of this post describes a highly informative discussion that touches on the subjects of multiple realities, evil, rituals for protection, love, Satan, and most importantly, how your vibration brings what you experience into your reality.

Are Some Things Meant To Be?

The idea some things in life are ‘meant to be’ and others aren’t, is an interesting and somewhat popular one, particularly when it comes to relationships. Lots of people who wouldn’t ordinarily admit they believe in fate or destiny seem tolerant of the idea that in close personal relationships, things are sometimes meant to be.

In this post we look at The Council’s answer to questions from Chris about what’s meant to be in her life. Although Chris’s questions are about a meaningful relationship, The Council’s answer is a reminder that you create your reality, and their answer offers helpful guidance on how you can do this. Here’s Chris’s question:

“How do I know if I’m meant to be with someone?

“I am 51 years old, am still single, and want to finally stop waiting, working toward, or wondering if I am MEANT to be with anyone.”

“I was in two long-term relationships before, one of which I wanted to work out, but didn’t.

“Then I learned to be ok and fine alone, happy, and rarely longing for someone.

“But now I feel more alone, and was wondering if ‘my time’ was finally coming, or I am just not dealing with my reality?”

–Chris

The Council’s Answer

“And so she says, is she meant to be with someone, and is her time coming?

She is the one that will decide if she is meant. She is the one that will decide if her time is coming, because… why? [Because] we are spirit in a physical body and we create our reality.

“And so from what she says, she has experienced a relationship and she has experienced being alone. And so we think for her, she should look back at both situations and focus on what she found loving and pleasant in both situations.

“And so when she can appreciate being in a relationship, and being alone (being with herself and feeling the appreciation and the love [for that]), she will then bring in someone new, someone more on the same vibration that she would be on.

“And it would be more of a relationship that would work out because if she is feeling loving and appreciation, and brings someone of that vibration into her reality, it will be a long-lasting relationship.”

“First to raise her vibration, and once that is in the vibration of love and appreciation, she will (as they say, like attracts like) bring the perfect person in for her to have a life-long relationship, if that is what she wants.

“But we would like her to know that she is not running out of time. There is nowhere it is written that she is meant or not meant to be in a relationship.

“And so, with her thoughts, and with her feelings, and her focus, she will create what she wants.”

“And so when she can focus always on that [happy memories] instead of on the doubt and the worry that time is running out, it will completely change the vibration… and what she brings in.”

—The Council

When a Loved One Unexpectedly Departs Physical Reality

This post is inspired by a request from Kali, who writes that her partner (father of her two young sons) didn’t physically survive a car crash a couple months ago. She adds that she can’t accept he’s gone, her pain is unbearable, she’s desperately trying to develop herself spiritually so she can connect with the love of her life, and she’d appreciate any guidance The Council can offer.

Do You Believe You are Spirit in a Physical Body?

On November 11, 2013 we did a session with The Council to see if we could get the guidance Kali requested. The Council began this session with the following comments:

“Well first we want to say he [Kali’s partner] hasn’t gone anywhere, he is just out of his physical body.

“You are stating you are desperate and trying to develop spiritually, so first we ask you to meditate on this question: Do you believe you are a spirit here, operating in this physical body? Because that is who you truly are.

“And spirit – which is light and energy – never dies; we transition. We choose to create physical bodies to come into this environment and when we are done, we leave the physical body. But there is no dying; there is no end to spirit. Is that understood?”

—The Council Continue reading

Feeling Your Way to Manifesting What You Desire

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

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

Feel Your Way There

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

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

Seeing People as Spirit in a Physical Body — An Exercise

Today we would like to give you
an exercise for the week.

Everywhere you go,
if you are on a bus or a train,
walking down the street,
or standing in line in a store,
wherever you are,
look at the people around you.

Pick one or two and just remember
they are spirit in a physical body.

They are here just like you,
experiencing their reality.

Just concentrate on them as spirit.
Your energy will begin to change.
You will align with who you really are.

This is a wonderful exercise to do
with difficult people in your life.

While it may not make you love them,
it will soften your feelings toward them.

This exercise will change your vibration.

And although you are concentrating on others
in a more understanding way,
you will be the one who benefits from this.

Try it, you’ll like it.

Is it Possible to Change Your Life Just by Changing Your Thoughts? + Helping Others

This post is inspired by the following simply stated questions from a reader named Freddy:

  1. How do better-feeling thoughts affect your life?
  2. Is it really possible to change your day-to-day life and your future with just a change in your thoughts?

On Thursday, June 14, 2012 we did a session with The Council to answer Freddy’s questions. During this session The Council surprised us with some related guidance about a question on Cynthia’s mind.

They observed that many of us who follow spiritual guidance related to the law of attraction and better-feeling thoughts, are limiting ourselves when we focus primarily on satisfying desires that aren’t also helping others.

The Council reminds us we are spiritual beings and that we planned with other spiritual beings to help each other bring the love we are as spirit into this physical dimension.

When we expand the focus of our attention to include these plans we made in spirit to help each other, these better-feeling thoughts allow us to experience the kind of spiritual expansion we came here for in the first place. The guidance on helping others begins under the heading: Cynthia’s Question about Helping Other People.

You Sort Of Light Up

“First of all, better-feeling thoughts affect the whole body…your whole mood…your whole vibration.

“You can tell the difference between a thought [like]: ‘I hate this job…I have to get up and go there…’ [or:] ‘Oh, my legs hurt…my back hurts…my head hurts…I have to go to the doctor.’

“And then you have a thought: ‘Oh, I’m so looking forward to this vacation we planned in the Berkshires. Oh, I remember the first time I went to the beach…I was 5 years old…I can still remember the sand castle we built.’

“Each thought has a different vibration. The better-feeling thought is what we call a quickening vibration. It’s like you become more alive; you begin to sparkle. When we look at you…you sort of light up.

“The better-feeling thought also affects your body. When you have the better-feeling thoughts, every cell in your body reacts to it.

“Now is it true that it changes your life? Yes.”

“When you really focus over and over again on better feeling thoughts, your thought…your feeling, is a vibration that goes out into the Universe. And as you are all learning now [about] the law of attraction, you must get back the same vibration that you are putting out. So what will return to you is a vibration that will bring to you more and more of things that will help you feel better.”

Reincarnation, Part 1 – All Past Lives are Present Lives

This post is the first part of a response to two thought-provoking questions on reincarnation and past lives, one from Bari and one from Rachael, and an inspired second question from Bari about the impact our thoughts and feelings can have on other people’s lives.

Bari’s Question

Bari has heard the popular spirit guide, Abraham, say that past lives don’t impact our current life. Bari finds this unexpected and asks The Council’s views on this subject.

“We like that she believes in reincarnation because that at least let’s us know that you [Bari] know that you are not just here one time and your life is over, as many people do believe.”

“When you understand that you are truly spirit in a physical body that continues to take many different forms and there is no end to what you call life, then you are open to learning many new thoughts [and] many new beliefs about these many, many lives, and that you truly do never die.”

–The Council (similarly formatted text below indicates quotations from The Council)

I asked The Council if they think that people who believe in reincarnation and past lives will automatically also believe they are spirit in a physical body.

“We believe that they know that they are more than this body because: what is coming back in each additional life? And so when you know that this shell, this body, this vehicle that you travel around in – when that expires there is still you – and that is the part of you that we urge you to get in touch with.”

All of Your Lives are Present Lives

“All of your lives are present lives. They are all going on at the same time. And you may wonder: how is this possible?

August 1, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feeling Your Desire

To raise your vibration
We ask you to have a thought,
Something that makes you happy.
See it in your future.

And if you can’t do that
We ask you to go back to a memory from your past:
Something that made you laugh;
Something that brought you joy.

As you stay in that memory
Your vibration increases.

The frequency of this vibration becomes faster,
And as you are in this state of joy
We then ask you to go into the thought,
Into the imagination of picturing what you want,
But then feel it.

After you have gotten to a state of happiness,
Then begin to feel what your desire is like.
What would it feel like to have it?

And that is what will help you manifest.

—The Council

Excerpted from The Council’s opening comments to participants of a Manifesting Your Desires meeting on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in New York City.

(The Council’s opening comments lasted about five minutes and with the exception of a brief greeting, each statement seems to stand on its own as a thought for the day. Beginning July 25, 2011 we are publishing The Council’s opening comments during this session as eight individual thoughts for the day. This post is the last of the series.)

July 31, 2011 Thought for the Day

Your Vibration

As you feel these desires
Your vibration changes.

And it is this vibration
That will bring back to you
What it is you are trying to manifest.

And many people do not know
How to line up with that feeling;
The feeling of happiness,
The feeling of joy.

That’s what will help you create.
