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.

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 Linda who asks The Council if her connection to spirit was harmed because she didn’t follow the directions of a voice she heard that may have been the Holy Spirit.
Years ago Linda experienced a loud, crashing wind coming through her bedroom window. It knocked over boxes stacked in a bedroom at the end of the hall and she heard a voice say, “Linda, get on your knees.” Linda was too afraid to move and now questions if this was the Holy Spirit talking to her. She asks The Council if she’ll ever be filled as fully with the Holy Spirit as she would have been if she kneeled down, and wonders if her decision not to kneel will affect her connection to spirit forever.
The Council tells Linda she was chosen for this wonderful experience with spirit. She did nothing wrong by not kneeling down and her connection to spirit isn’t broken. They encourage her to talk to this voice throughout the day and it will be heard.
The Council says Linda is moving in the right direction on this path she’s created for herself and they reiterate she did nothing wrong and nothing has been lost because she didn’t kneel down years ago. They say she needed this experience to help her feel there’s something more than her physical body and something larger than her she can talk to.
The Council says if she meditates, or just sits quietly with the belief this has happened to her once, the voice will come to her again if she forgives herself and is open to it. This is part of what she created in spirit before she came into this reality.
Listen to the entire 5-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Linda and the rest of us.
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 Marie’s questions about an ex-boyfriend who is trying to contact her even though she doesn’t want him to, and she asks The Council’s advice.
The Council says what Marie is saying she wants and what she is creating in her life are two different things, and they ask her to look at where she is focusing her attention. They say by focusing her attention on how she doesn’t want this man in her life, this focus is actually attracting him into it.
The Council suggests Marie focus on what she wants in her life rather than what she doesn’t want. Focus on the people she loves and be with them. Do things that make her happy rather than focusing on where this man is, what he is doing, and why he’s doing it.
The Council says the more Marie writes to us asking about this person, the more she brings this person and his energy into her life.
Listen to the recording of the entire 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Marie.
This post is inspired by a reader named Flower who asks The Council if the pregnancy she terminated 3 weeks before involved a separate soul or if it was part of her soul, like it was in our post describing Beth’s situation. Flower is also concerned whether her terminating this pregnancy had irreversible consequences on her etheric body and her karma, and she’s concerned it was an interference with nature.
The Council says there was a pre-birth planned agreement between Flower and this familiar soul from other past lives to experience this terminated pregnancy. They go on to say this abortion has absolutely not had the irreversible consequences Flower is concerned about, but they add that if she continues to focus on this fear rather than what she desires she is capable of attracting something unwanted into her life.
The Council says the etheric body Flower asks about is energy and light and doesn’t hold on to anything negative or dark, and there is no great consequence that would come from terminating this pregnancy. They advise Flower to remember who she is as a spiritual being. And they say everything she’s experienced has been pre-planned and her life is right on track.
Flower feels it would be hard to forgive herself if her concerns were true, and The Council says there is no forgiveness needed. She should give herself a pat on the back for fulfilling her pre-birth plan with this other soul. The purpose of this situation was to turn it around by bringing love into it.
The Council says as Flower learns to let go of negativity about terminating this pregnancy and is able to accept that she and the aborted soul pre-planned this with love, she can do a great service for many people who are also going through this experience. Flower’s love for herself and the aborted soul will touch many others.
The Council says they’ll send Flower love and light to help her move forward through her questioning and create the future she desires, and that their speaking to her was also pre-planned in spirit. She’ll also have the love of the soul that returned home to spirit when it was aborted to help her feel good about herself and get through this.
The Council says this aborted soul will come back into Flower’s life, maybe as the child of a friend. They have worked together before and there’s a fondness, recognition, and there will be much happiness that they will bring to each other when they’re reunited.
The Council ended this session by sending Flower and the rest of us light, and they advised us to know this light is within all of us. And it’s all of us together that will bring the light into this reality so there’s peace and love and the feeling of spirit in each other’s worlds.
Listen to the recording of the entire 9-minute session (below) with The Council to hear all their guidance and advice for Flower and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Kips who asks The Council for advice on a 9-year relationship with a man that has just ended.
The Council says the way this relationship was planned by Kips’s soul before incarnating into this lifetime was to end this relationship quite early. Because Kips and this man were fond of each other from other lifetimes they planned to come together for a very short time and then for Kips to get her freedom, which is what she wishes to experience in this lifetime.
And yet something about this relationship held Kips in it much longer than she originally planned. This staying with one another for a longer period is something that appeared because of circumstances in this lifetime.
Kips says being with this person brought her much heartache, and The Council says they hope this heartache has taught Kips a lot. And once these patterns are recognised The Council hopes Kips won’t accept them and stay in them, or draw them into a new relationship when she prepares to move on.
Kips says this man recently professed a desire to create a family with her and then he was gone. And The Council says that’s the way is should have been, but because of circumstances they created in each other’s lives it wasn’t over and it’s taken much longer in this reality to come to this point.
Kips adds that she wonders if there’s light ahead and says she’d like to experience love with a partner and build a family. The Council responds that there is light ahead and all around if Kips looks for it. The Council suggests expressing gratitude for the periods of this relationship when things went well instead of focusing on the hardships. They say as she appreciates the good that was in this relationship she can create something new for herself and move on.
When Bob remarked that it sounds like The Council is advising Kips to let go of this relationship, The Council says that if Kips and this man came together again they see another ending because the main purpose of the relationship was to come together and then release. Kips wanted to experience the freedom of learning from what was experienced and then move on.
The Council says what is ahead for Kips isn’t more loss unless she stays focused on loss and fear of things not working out, rather than happiness coming into her life. And they add if Kips truly desires freedom then she’ll be free to move on. If she desires a family and a new loving relationship that is easier and happier and that’s committed to by both people, then she’ll create that.
The Council ended this session by sending Kips and the rest of us more light, and they suggested we know this light is within all of us. And it’s all of us together that will bring the light into this reality so there’s peace and love and the feeling of spirit in each other’s worlds.
Listen to the recording of the entire 9-minute session (below) with The Council to hear all their guidance and advice for Kips and the rest of us.
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 post is inspired by a question from Christine, who’s interested in knowing if the information she received from a clairvoyant about her being psychic in a past life in Egypt and having her head cut off is correct.
The Council says they see a past life where Christine was in training as a high priestess in the temples of ancient Egypt. In the temple of Isis where she served most of the time, she was one of the young girls who were considered to have great promise as high priestess for the information she was capable of receiving.
The Council says the reason Christine didn’t make it to being a high priestess is that she was imprisoned for not worshiping exactly as she was taught. She had a desire to be out in nature and would sneak away from the temple. When this was found out she lost her position and was taken away.
The Council says Christine’s gift of intuition stayed with her and they see past lives after Egypt where this intuition was considerable. She carries this intuition into her current lifetime if she’d like to work with it and have it grow within her.
The Council suggests meditation and as she progresses she’ll be able to answer questions. They say Christine would do well in a class on developing her psychic ability if she took one. And they suggest she’ll be able to get some memories of the life she had in Egypt by meditating on this.
The Council says they don’t see Christine having her head cut off in this past life in Egypt. But they do see she had an early death from a brain aneurysm due to her imprisonment, and maybe this is why she was given information from a clairvoyant about losing her head.
The Council wishes Christine a great journey as she connects her past life in Egypt with her current lifetime. They suggest reading books on Egypt and visiting museums will bring her a lot of joy.
The Council says her desire to have a fuller life and more freedom in Egypt was brought into her current life. And they say as she connects with that lifetime, that feeling will return and push her forward in her current life to find what she’s looking for. And The Council adds they feel this will be a great experience for Christine.
Listen to the entire 12-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Christine.
Recently we published a post titled, Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship, answering Jolanda’s questions about her relationship with her husband. After reading that post Jolanda had some follow-up questions and the current post answers those questions.
Jolanda begins by saying she was inspired to ask her questions by listening to the teachings of Abraham and that prior to hearing these teachings she felt leaving her husband was her only option. But she’s heard Abraham repeatedly say something like the following:
“Don’t get out of a relationship until you can be strong and happy within yourself, no matter what is going on around you. If someone makes you go out of the Vortex, just get back in. Don’t let someone upset your ability to be happy and be in the Vortex.”
Jolanda says she resonates to this and realized her problem was really her difficulty being happy when her husband was unhappy. She adds:
“Abraham cautions that if we don’t get ourselves right before leaving a relationship, we’ll just get into the same type of relationship again and again, until we learn our lesson.”
Jolanda asks The Council’s opinion on this, considering their answers in the earlier post seemed to suggest it was her intention she find the strength to protect herself and her children by leaving her husband. She says:
“I know I haven’t learned how to be happy while others are unhappy, which is why I feel that my husband is the absolute best partner I could possibly have at this time, because he’s in my face every day, being unhappy with me, and pushing my buttons. What better way to learn to get happy no matter what is going on around me?”
The Council has a lot to say to Jolanda about her situation, but it boils down to the following quote:
“When you realize something is not bringing you joy (because that is what you are wishing to experience) then you have the ability to start making another choice, to start making a plan on how you would do this if you’re not ready to do this right now. But there is nowhere/anywhere where Abraham or any other spirit would say stay there if you are miserable. It’s like, stay there if you have to till you get the strength to make another choice.”
When the session was finished we did a Google search on “Abraham Hicks abusive relationship” to get Abraham’s views on this subject instead of Jolanda’s view of what Abraham was saying. What we came up with was a 7-minute YouTube video titled, “Is it time to leave?”, which we reproduce below. The woman speaking with Abraham is in a situation similar to Jolanda.
And while Abraham does emphasize the importance of working on yourself to improve your vibration before leaving a relationship so you don’t attract a similar relationship into your life, they add that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to take action. They say:
“The story we like best is: You’re sitting on a park bench and you’re feeling fear, and you don’t really know if there’s a monster in the bushes or if you just think there’s a monster in the bushes. And we say, in any event, move away from the monster.”
The Council appears to understand that Jolanda chose to be in this abusive relationship with her husband for the specific purpose of developing the strength in this lifetime to leave him and protect herself and her children. The Council adds more than once it’s Jolanda’s choice whether she actually leaves her husband on not, and they are merely reminding her of her pre-birth intention.
Listen to our entire 22-minute session with The Council (below) to hear Jolanda’s follow-up questions and The Council’s answers for her and anyone in a similar situation.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Jolanda who says it’s taken her a long time to realize her husband (who is the father and step-father of their children) is verbally and emotionally abusive to her and their stepchildren.
Jolanda asks if she’s right to stay with her husband and The Council says there was a pre-birth agreement they would come together in this lifetime. They see previous lifetimes where Jolanda had experienced a lack of courage and in this lifetime she desires to learn to be a protector of herself and her children. The Council adds that her children are part of this agreement and it’s their purpose to push Jolanda to become the protector she wants to be.
The Council asks if Jolanda feels it’s safe for her children to be around her husband, or is it time to move on to protect them. The Council says these questions are there to push her in the direction she wants to go. And they add Jolanda doesn’t need to grow any more to realize the relationship with her husband is an abusive one.
The Council says Jolanda’s spirit wants to experience the other side of the coin – the kind of partner she’d feel unconditional love with and feel her children are safe, growing, and happy. They say it’s her choice and the lesson to protect herself and her children is right in front of her.
Jolanda says it’s difficult to be yelled at, blamed, ignored, and devalued by someone who means the world to her. And The Council asks if she believes by staying in this relationship she’ll acquire the strength she needs and the love she wants.
The Council advises Jolanda to love herself and her children and put herself on a path where she experiences this, and to picture herself as strong and happy, having a loving partner and happy children.
The Council says if Jolanda stays in this relationship it will stay the way it is. This is the way she created this relationship – to stay this way until she finds the strength to change it.
Listen to the entire 11-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jolanda.
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.
This post is inspired by questions about a relationship from a reader who goes by the name Aquarius 4. He recently had a private phone session with us which brought up more questions that he’d like us to answer in a post.
Because Aquarius 4 discusses several different subjects that relate to material we discussed in our phone session, his comment can seem a little difficult to follow. The basis of his story is a problematic relationship with a woman in this lifetime that he’s experienced in other lifetimes.
Toward the end of our session with The Council they say Aquarius 4 won’t rid himself of this woman or the problems he’s experiencing with her in his current life. They are here to be experienced, The Council says. They say the connection with this woman is strong because the two of them have a spiritual desire to heal their relationship.
The Council advised Aquarius 4 he must take his focus off these past lives. They are there to provide information about what’s happened and what’s desired, but constantly focusing on what went wrong in those lives won’t fix the problems he’s having with this woman is his current reality.
The Council says to focus on what went right, no matter how brief it was, and focus on what he desires. When Aquarius 4 is able to create more of what he desires in his current lifetime, The Council says that’s when he’ll see change and feel more at peace.
The Counsel advises Aquarius 4 not to pressure himself to heal this relationship right now. They say healing will happen when they both feel safe and are able to look at the situations around them and overcome them.
At the end of our session The Counsel says Aquarius 4’s letter is full of questions and fear in the beginning, but by the end he sees himself handling and acknowledging things differently. They add that through this situation with this woman he has already begun to grow and is on the path he wants his life to be on.
The Council’s parting words are to be present, focus your mind, and feel your heart. They ask what Aquarius 4 has created in his reality and what he wishes to create? They advise seeing his situation as he wants it, feel the love, and he’ll bring this into his reality.
Listen to our entire 19-minute session with The Council below to answer Aquarius 4’s questions.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named T. who asks The Council the purpose of a beautiful soul in her life who happens to be a co-worker and married to another woman.
T. says she’s never felt so free and content just knowing he exists and feels unconditional love for him. She’s unable to see any unhappiness in his marriage, and while she knows he feels something for her, T. has no idea what this is. She asks for signs of his feelings, but finds them confusing.
T. wonders if she shouldn’t give energy to the idea of being with him one day, or sit back and wait for the right time to be with him. She asks The Council why they have come together, if they’ve lived past lives together, and what is his purpose in her life?
The Council asks T. why she would want to give up this unconditionally loving relationship and they add this is the reason we have come to this physical reality. She has created this relationship in her life and she needs it.
The Council asks if T. must have more, or if she’s able to appreciate the relationship she’s having right now? Does she want to come between this man and his wife?
The Council feels confident T. will create whatever she wants. Perhaps she’ll create an affair with this man – whether it ends well or not will depend on how she creates it.
The Council says T. is able to create a situation where this man leaves his wife. Or is T. able to enjoy this relationship, taking what she finds there, and create her very own partner without separating this married couple? The Council says there isn’t any judgement of her whichever she chooses. What feels better to her?
The Council says T. and the co-worker have lived past lives together and he’s in her life now to help her get in touch with loving feelings that will help her create what she desires. Will T. take the love she’s created in this relationship and create a new relationship where she’s able to share these feelings with someone else, and still remain friends with this co-worker? Or does T. want to create what she desires with this man she works with?
The Council says it’s very important for T. to focus on the feelings and emotions that are uplifting for her and then choose whether she’d like to share this love with her co-worker, or create someone new in her life to share this love with.
This is a choice The Council says wants to be made (presumably in spirit). As they see it, this choice was discussed before coming into this physical reality when T. was in spirit, and it was her wish to see how she could create loving feelings wherever she goes, whether it be in an intimate relationship or with family, friends, co-workers, etc.
The Council says this situation is not about creating the right partner for T. It’s about creating loving feelings in all her relationships.
Listen to the entire 13-minute session with The Council to get the benefit of all their guidance for T.
This post is inspired by a question from Wendy who’s a fan of the channels Abraham and Bashar, and she also feels a deep connection to Jesus. Recently she’s begun reading the bible with the goal of reading it cover to cover. Wendy is an avid reader of all things spiritual and feels an understanding of the bible is important, but she’s curious about differences she finds between what the bible says and what Abraham and Bashar have been saying. So she’s decided to ask The Council how true are the writings and stories in the bible to get their opinion.
Ordinarily we like to write a synopsis of what The Council says so you can decide whether to listen to the session’s audio recording below. For this session we’ve decided to limit our remarks because it appears difficult to summarize.
The Council does say in a past life Wendy was a child at the time Christ was born and she was a witness to this. The Council suggests Wendy meditate on this and ask to feel and see this again. And they say reading the bible is a good exercise for her.
We suggest you listen to the entire 18-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance on understanding the bible.
This post is inspired by a question from Jackie, who’s looking for guidance from The Council about whether or not to have a forth child she’s now pregnant with. Jackie says her forth pregnancy was a planned one, but now that she’s pregnant she’s having second thoughts about it.
The Council advises Jackie to examine her thoughts and her life to see what’s contributing to this change from when she planned this child. Is it the people she’s speaking with, is it old fears coming up, is she not sure about her relationship with the father, or something else that’s troubling her.
Jackie says she’s afraid a decision to have this child will end many close relationships in her life, and The Council advises her to think about what she wants for herself. Is the idea of having another child something that makes Jackie feel good? What kind of pressure does Jackie feel from the people around her that makes her feel like she would loose these relationships?
The Council advises whatever decision Jackie makes, there are agreements with the souls involved to be part of this decision. If she has this child and looses these close relationships, this was agreed upon and it’s okay with everyone involved. If Jackie terminates the pregnancy, this was also agreed upon by the soul of this child, and these close relationships would stay in Jackie’s life. The Council says the answer to this decision is in these thoughts. How did she get from wanting the child to being afraid of having this child?
The Council asks Jackie if she decides to have this child, whether she’ll have the assistance she needs to raise it peacefully. Or is she not likely to have this assistance, in which case she might decide not to have it. Which decision does Jackie feel more comfortable with?
The Council reminds Jackie she isn’t here in this physical reality to drive herself crazy or suffer great hardships. If there isn’t great love and anticipation for this child, The Council says Jackie should look at that. Does the idea of terminating the pregnancy feel like a relief to her. Now is the time for Jackie to look at her thoughts and the feelings that go with them.
The Council advises Jackie that in our physical reality there will always be fears and there isn’t any right or wrong decision. She should feel how she is with the thought of having this child, and feel how she is with the thought of ending this pregnancy. The Council says either choice is fine because they were planned for in spirit. It’s just the road Jackie desires to take.
The Council feels if Jackie thinks about what they’ve suggested, she will have an ah-ha moment. And even if she can hold onto this moment for a few minutes, she will know what feels most comfortable and can make her decision. They say it’s normal to waffle back and forth after this ah-ha moment, but The Council says Jackie will get a strong feeling about what to do and she should follow that decision.
The Council feels Jackie is a lot stronger than she believed when she wrote her comment. They say a small part of the anxiety she felt in the previous year is making this decision a little difficult, but they think Jackie will learn how strong she can be if this is her choice. As she begins to look at what she has learned and come through in her life, she will take care of herself differently and her life will change for the better, regardless of whether she chooses to have this child or terminate this pregnancy.
Listen to the entire 16-minute session below to get the benefit of all The Council’s guidance for Jackie and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from Christine, who says she’s having a difficult time after ending a relationship she was in last year.
The Council says what Christine considers love and what her ex-boyfriend considers love is not the same. He felt love for Christine involved controlling her and keeping her where she was. He thought this was for Christine’s own good and for her protection, but it was more that he could feel in control and safe.
This was overwhelming for Christine and wasn’t allowing either of them to be the spiritual beings they truly are. The Council feels the ex-boyfriend’s challenges of anger and his need for control fed his insecurity and prevented him from bringing in the love his spiritual being desired to experience. Under these circumstances Christine’s higher self gave her the strength to put an end to the relationship.
The Council says it’s understandable Christine will feel depressed over ending this relationship, but they suggest she look at her knowledge it needed to end, how she removed herself from the situation, and what she has learned so she doesn’t fall into the same situation again.
The Council advises Christine to begin creating the kind of relationship she wants by imagining how this relationship feels and what it looks like. By changing her focus from the past to the present and future, Christine will be able to move forward in her desired direction. She can let go of the fear her next relationship will duplicate what she’s just come through and begin to think about what she’s learned from this relationship. She now knows the danger signs of being manipulated.
The Council says Christine should honor herself for learning the lessons this relationship offered and how she freed herself from it rather than stay until it became even more challenging. She’s many steps ahead of where she could have been. Christine’s ex-partner will go on to learn his lessons another way; perhaps with another partner, or being very lonely, but these are his challenges, not Christine’s.
The Council says this relationship was pre-planned in spirit by Christine and her ex-boyfriend and if she must think about it rather than focusing on the new relationship she wants to create, she should think about it with joy rather than depression. Her ex-boyfriend agreed in spirit to push Christine to develop and learn from this experience that she deserved better and needed to protect herself. And Christine had a desire to learn how to take care of herself in a severe situation.
The Council sees in Christine’s future she will have the opportunity to help another woman in a similar situation and they advise her to learn all she can from the relationship with her ex-boyfriend so she can help this woman. The Council says this is a more productive focus and it will allow her to create a more loving experience for herself.
The Council makes the interesting point toward the end of the session that when souls return to the world of spirit, they will meet the souls who put them through these horrible experiences in their physical reality and they will love them and say thank you for presenting them with these opportunities to grow.
Listen to the entire 21-minute session (below) to experience all of The Council’s guidance for Christine and the rest of us.
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 questions from Jose who’s experienced chronic gastrointestinal pain for the last 5 months. Although he believes there are lessons to learn from this experience and trusts there is a higher purpose for his symptoms, his chronic pain is causing anxiety and depression and he wants to know why spirit is taking so long to tell him how to heal.
The Council says Jose’s spirit has created these symptoms and it’s his desire to come into this lifetime and figure out what this challenge is about. All of these symptoms are part of his soul’s plan to open him to other pathways, and he’s following this plan exactly as he intended.
The Council says the beginning of Jose’s healing is to think of his pain as part of who he is, rather than some horrible thing he needs to get rid of. This pain is there for Jose to accept and show him something. Start talking to the part of his body where he’s experienced these symptoms and tell them there’s a less painful way to find the answers you’re looking for.
The Council suggests Jose ask what this pain reminds him of and why has he created it. Make the pain his friend, not an enemy, because it is desperately trying to teach him something he desires to learn.
The Council asks Jose if he is sending love to the pain in his body, or if he’s just angry at it all the time. Know that this pain is there to help Jose and as he sends it more love, he’ll find a way to heal.
The Council says there is a life force continually being sent from spirit to you in your physical body to help you with your journey. This pain is a symptom of Jose’s physical body not accepting this life force. When Jose can picture this life force coming to him in any way he wants, he may notice parts of himself where this life force doesn’t flow easily. As he continues to allow this life force into these parts that previously resisted it, he will begin to heal.
If you’ve ever experienced a painful experience, listen to The Council’s entire 18-minute session to hear all their advice on letting love in.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Tracy who asks, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” and “What if we are sad, selfish spirit, and hurting so bad?”
The Council says they have never seen anyone not succeed on any level. They say succeeding is the process of feeling good, and there is always something in your life to feel good about. But perhaps Tracy can’t remember those times right now. Review your life, going back as early as you can, and The Council is sure you will find times where you succeeded. There is always some success in your life. When you look for those times you will find them.
The Council understands how Tracy can feel sad and hurt, but that’s because of what she believes and has planned to experience in this lifetime. But opportunities will continually present themselves and she has the power to change. Her greatest tool in this lifetime is choice, and she can always choose to look for something good. Or she can do something good for someone else. When you do something for another person you will automatically start to feel better.
The Council says some people chose to experience hardships their entire life because they are learning from it and want to experience it to the fullest extent. And you don’t know what the soul is trying to accomplish through this. But when you return to spirit everything is okay and you have the opportunity to decide what you want to do with this experience.
The Council says if Tracy has seen love but not taken advantage of it, she needs to look at why this is the case. This will involve deep soul searching. Because she’s asking these questions now, she can take this opportunity to look at her life differently. As long as she is alive, Tracy has the power to sort this out.
As everyone in spirit sees it, Tracy has a successful life. There is no failure in spirit. There are just experiences, and what you decide to do with them.
The Council says in the beginning of Tracy’s lifetime she had the idea she wasn’t enough as a person. They add Tracy was lonely and around people who weren’t able to live a normal experience. This loneliness begins to shut down Tracy’s belief in what she deserves. And when she believes this, she will create situations that will prove that belief is true, until she begins to question and know she is so much more than a physical person, and that she has the power to change her life. These questions are coming forward precisely so Tracy’s life can change, and The Council sees this as great growth and a wonderful crossroads.
The Council says Tracy has time to make choices that will change her experience, regardless of what she experienced when she was younger. As long as you are in a physical body you have the ability to see things differently. If you can send love to the people in your life that you feel were not good to you, or to any situation that wasn’t right, there is growth and there is change.
Before you come into this lifetime and when you come back to spirit, you know that no matter how hard it’s been, you are not stuck in your physical reality. You are coming home.
There’s a lot of information in the recording (below) that’s difficult to include in this session overview . Listen to the entire 19-minute session to appreciate all The Council’s guidance for Tracy and anyone who is having difficulty in this lifetime.
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 a reader named Emmy who asks how she can create a family after having a recent missed miscarriage – a miscarried pregnancy that goes undetected by the mother, usually until diagnosed by a physician.
First The Council says this miscarriage was not pre-planned before Emmy came into this life. Instead she would decide after she got here whether she wanted to experience this.
Now that Emmy has a desire to create a family, The Council suggests she investigate the reasons why she wants one, then they explain the details of creating it. They suggest she see herself receiving the news she’s pregnant and feeling her emotions about it. Then they ask her to see and feel various milestones in the child’s life, from birth, to school, dating, marriage, having it’s own children, and the milestones in between. The Council says seeing and feeling these details and how she wants them to be is the way she’ll create them.
The Council says if she now feels ready, she can speak with the soul of her child-to-be and give it permission to come into her life, and it will come.
The Council suggests visualizing each event in the child’s life, going into great detail, and feeling like it’s already happening. This is the inner work. This is how you create in the spiritual world and then manifest it in the physical.
The Council says to have fun with this. Creating is always fun. Take the pressure off and see exactly what you want.
Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to get all the details of The Council’s guidance for Emmy.
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 is inspired by questions from an anonymous reader on the theme of past lives. She says she’s experienced some difficulties in this lifetime and asks if her last lifetime was any different. She also asks how many lifetimes she’s had, and if she’s an old soul.
The Council starts by saying we are all old souls according to time in our reality. By this we expect they mean that most or all humans have experienced many, many lifetimes.
The Council reminds this reader she’s the creator of the difficulty she’s experienced and they ask: what has she learned about this, how has she come though these experiences, is she proud of herself and does she love herself for what she’s been through. Then The Council asks if she can feel how going through these difficult experiences has brought her to where she is right now, and these experiences can help her create the future.
The Council says we pull situations from past lives into our current life to push us and help us in this lifetime. They say perhaps you liked the way you handled something in a past life and want to experience it again. Or perhaps you think you can handle a situation better and you create it again in this lifetime to see if you can have a better feeling outcome.
The Council says it’s Anonymous’s purpose in this lifetime to appreciate her experience in a family that hasn’t been loving, rise above that experience, and when the time comes she can create her own family where she can give and receive the love she didn’t receive from her birth family.
What surprised us most about the information in this session was The Council’s response to A’s question about how many past lives she’s lived. The Council has mentioned in several other sessions that from a spiritual point of view we don’t experience a past and a future. Everything is taking place in an infinitely present moment. What we think of as the past and the future is a human interpretation we think of as time.
The Council says because your spirit is so full of love and the desire to learn and experience, your soul is able to send multiple parts of itself into various time periods–past, present, and future–and experience them all simultaneously. They even say we have the ability to send multiple parts of ourselves into the same time period. And we have the ability to create new additional past as well as present lives.
This session contains ideas that may be difficult to grasp. Listen to the entire 10-minute session below to hear in The Council’s own words the power you have as a spiritual being.
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 an anonymous reader’s question about whether she knows her ex-boyfriend and his mother from a previous lifetime.
The Council was quick to interject while Bob read this question, that we all know each other. In retrospect this comment raises some interesting questions, but we let them pass and concentrated on the more specific aspects of Anonymous’s question. Perhaps The Council will shed more light on this comment in one or more future sessions.
The Council says that while Anonymous shares many lifetimes with these people, they prefer to look at the ones that relate to the life she’s living now. They say one reason for her familiarity with them is that before this lifetime the three of them worked very well together, while still in spirit, to help little children return to spirit from their physical lives.
The Council says because the three of them enjoyed this spiritual experience so much, they decided to incarnate into this physical life, “to sort of stir things up, and experience more situations where you could all be in the helping role.”
Bob raises the question of Anonymous not currently being with her ex-boyfriend. And The Council replies that whether they were helping each other or those around them, the idea was to bring love into every situation. Just because they’re not together now doesn’t mean they didn’t achieve this goal while they were together. And it doesn’t mean they saw it necessary to stay together for this whole incarnation. The Council adds sometimes people come together for the short-term to experience whatever they have planned, and then they move on.
When Bob asks about past lives these three may have shared that are relevant to their current life, The Council repeats there are many. And they say they believe Anonymous is able to tap into these past lives by asking for this information and meditating on it.
The Council sees the three of them were together as men in the early 1800s working with children in orphanages and children who were abandoned to the streets. They created a community of people that fed these children and tried to find them homes.
The Council asks Anonymous whether her relationship with the ex-boyfriend and his mother helped create a feeling she’d like to continue helping children in this lifetime. They add it would be good for her to meditate on how she can help others, and this will fulfill her spiritual desire to share and bring love into this lifetime.
Listen below to the entire recording of our 8-minute session with The Council to answer Anonymous’s question and feel free to offer your feedback. Please forgive us for some minor technical difficulties we had with the audio during this session.
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.
