This post is inspired by a follow-up question from Michelle, who terminated a pregnancy last month because the timing wasn’t right for bringing another child into her family, but Michelle was having difficulty finding peace with this decision.
In our post to answer Michelle’s original question (Some Clarification on a Recent Abortion), The Council advised Michelle and her partner based on Michelle’s desire to possibly have this child when the timing is right. Now Michelle is asking what can be done of she and her partner decide not to have another child. She wants to know how she can release this spirit who is waiting to return to her in a future pregnancy. if there is one, and doesn’t want to “mess up” a plan that was made if she chooses not to get pregnant again.
The Council says there’s an understanding that if there’s a change of heart and another child isn’t desired, this is fine. They advise Michelle to send love to the soul who was on standby and let it know that at this point in your life what you had planned has taken a turn and it’s not necessary for it to come into her lifetime.
The soul will wait until Michelle definitely decides she doesn’t want another child. If she’s unsure, the soul will wait to see if it will be needed to fulfill the original agreement.
Listen to our full 4-minute session with The Council to receive all their guidance for Michelle and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Mariner2Mother, who asks The Council about the soul of a child from one of her early pregnancies where the child was aborted. A medium told her the soul of a child is with her in spirit and she wonders if it is this soul.
The Council says they don’t see the souls from earlier pregnancies around Mariner2Mother specifically. They say these souls have moved on, but they add that these souls will always be sending her support and love.
Mariner2Mother says later when she got married and tried to start a family she had a miscarriage and asks The Council if there was a soul involved in this pregnancy because the fertilized egg never developed. The Council says there was a soul associated with this pregnancy and there is always a soul associated with every pregnancy, even if the child isn’t born.
Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) on Mariner2Mother’s questions to receive all their guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Miyam who is past her first trimester of pregnancy and she says she’s tried to abort with herbs because she can’t afford a medical abortion. Miyam has tried speaking with the soul of the unborn child in the hope of convincing it to miscarry, and she asks The Council for advice on convincing this soul to terminate it’s pregnancy rather than be born.
The Council says the spirit of this unborn child understands that Miyam wants it to miscarry, but the reason Miyam got pregnant was for her to realize she must take more control of her life and move it forward in the direction she chooses. The Council advises Miyam not to expect a miscarriage in this pregnancy. They say she must make a decision whether to give birth to the child and raise it by herself, or be brave enough to make the decision to end her pregnancy.
Miyam says she doesn’t plan on being a mother any time soon, and The Council repeats that the child won’t magically go away. They advise her to then move forward an have the pregnancy terminated, but it must be done soon.
The Council suggest Miyam continue speaking to the child and feel the love it sends her so she can be strong enough to make the decision that she wants. They say if she chooses to abort, this is fine. It was part of the pre-planning. The lesson for Miyam in this is to answer the question, where is she going forward from this point?
The Council suggests finding a way not to live with the man she apparently doesn’t want to be with. Find a way to live on your own. Move toward these dreams. They say that is Miyam’s answer.
Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all the guidance for Miyam and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Michelle who asks The Council about her recent abortion. She and her husband made the decision together to abort the child, but Michelle is having difficulty finding peace with her decision. She understands much of what we’ve posted on the subject of abortion, but feels she could still benefit from some additional clarification.
The Council says this pregnancy and abortion was pre-planned in spirit by all involved, including the spirit of the aborted child. At this time a greater feeling of love and togetherness is needed, and a focus on the relationship moving forward before Michelle and her partner are ready to have a child. At this time they aren’t where their higher selves planned them to be when giving birth.
The Council says if they didn’t abort this child there would have been a miscarriage. While there is happiness in this relationship, there is also the thought something is not quite right with the timing for a child.
Focus on creating the proper environment and a loving relationship. Speak to the spirit of the child that will come and tell them what is planned and invite the child back. Meditate, pray, or talk together about plans for the future with this child. All positive thoughts will bring this child in.
The purpose of this pregnancy and abortion at this time was to highlight was is needed in this relationship to bring a child into a loving environment and reassuring the spirit of this child what is planned. The Council believes the same spirit that was aborted will return.
Michelle says during and after both her earlier pregnancies with her two current children she was depressed and she was worried the depression would come back. Now she’s feeling depressed anyway. The Council says this depression must be changed with Michelle’s thoughts. Worrying about this coming back will bring it back. Michelle needs to practice changing her thoughts. Focus on the life they desire and bring love into this situation.
Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Michelle and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by follow up questions from a private phone session for a reader named Andrea, who was told her abortion last summer was pre-planned before she was born and the spirit of the child was waiting to return to her in a future pregnancy. The abortion was related to a past life where she died in an orphanage fire where she was taking care of the children, and she’s struggling to understand the relationship between these two events.
The Council says in this past life, not being able to save herself and the children from this fire, she died feeling guilty and with the belief she doesn’t deserve to have children around her. In her current lifetime she comes in wanting children, but the subconscious memory from the lifetime with the fire makes her believe she cannot take care of them.
Andrea must learn this is a different life from her life with the fire and now she has a chance to redo her experience with children and become a great parent or teacher. When she truly believes this she will have one or more children and there will be no more miscarriages or abortions.
Andrea’s abortion was the result of her subconscious belief she wasn’t worthy to give birth to a child and be around them. As she learns to focus on all the good things she’ll be able to create in a life with children and brings love into the current reality, she’ll be able to give birth to one or more children.
Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Andrea and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by comments and questions from a reader named Isobel who begins by thanking The Council for their post on Beth’s Story: A Spiritual Perspective and how she doesn’t believe the articles she’s read about women who abort a child and pay for this lifetime after lifetime.
The Council says in spirit, when there are lessons we wish to learn before we come into a particular lifetime, and we don’t quite learn these lessons in that lifetime, we can choose to repeat these lessons in additional lifetimes until we’re sure of the love that exists between all of the parties involved. There is no payment or karma involved that a woman must repeat her abortion lifetime after lifetime. If an abortion is experienced, it is by the loving choice of the spirit to see the experience differently until there is complete love and understanding of that process as a human being.
Isobel recently terminated a pregnancy and wants to know if it was the spirit of a girl she miscarried when she was much younger. The Council says the spirit of this child was known from other lifetimes, but it wasn’t the soul of the child she miscarried.
The Council says this abortion was planned in spirit to learn more about abortion and the process of agreement between the child, the father, herself, and anyone else involved, and then to quickly let go of these feelings and move forward. The Council asks Isobel to meditate on her desire in spirit to move forward and not linger any longer than necessary on the abortion.
Isobel asks if the spirit of the aborted child is likely to return to her in a future pregnancy. And The Council says there’s a possibility she’ll get pregnant again with this partner, but the soul will be a different soul that she knows from another lifetime; not the soul she aborted in this lifetime.
Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Isobel and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the name Mangojuice13, who previously asked questions about her abortion. Mangojuice13 points out in her current comment that in several of our posts The Council has said abortions are always pre-planned, but in a previous post answering Mangojuice13’s questions we wrote that all abortions aren’t pre-planned, and she asks us to explain this apparent discrepancy.
In our session to answer Mangojuice’s current questions The Council says when a woman becomes pregnant this is pre-planned and there are basically three options concerning abortion and it’s pre-planning in spirit. The first option is the desire to experience an abortion in this lifetime and The Council says this is definitely pre-planned in spirit. The second option is the desire to have the baby, in which case this is also pre-planned. The third option is to become pregnant, but to pre-plan the option to abort the child or have the child. In this case there is an agreement in spirit by all parties concerned to wait and see what the circumstances are at the time of the pregnancy and to make the decision at that time.
Mangojuice13 asks The Council if the soul of the child she aborted will return to her in a future pregnancy or will it be a different soul? And The Council says what they see is this soul moving on, and if there’s another pregnancy it will be a different soul.
Mangojuice13 asks The Council what the soul she aborted is currently doing. And The Council says going to school, planning another lifetime, and helping others in our lifetime. They say there are many things going on at one time for spirits in the spirit world.
Mangojuice13 asks The Council if her aborted child was going to be a male or a female? And The Council says there wasn’t a decision made by this soul regarding it’s gender. When Bob expressed confusion about this The Council said in this particular case the soul did not have plans to be borne and didn’t make the decision whether it would be a male or a female. They said usually the decision is made by three months into the pregnancy, but they have seen circumstances where this isn’t the case and they say it’s up to the soul that’s being born.
Lastly Mangojuice13 asks The Council how many children they see her having in this lifetime. And The Council says at this particular time they see one child, but they add that it’s possible for Mangojuice13, depending on her desire, to recreate this and have less or more children. Bob asks if there’s a preference for a male or female child and The Council says it seems like there’s a preference for a male at this time.
Listen to our entire 12-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Mangojuice13 and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by several follow-up questions from a reader named Carolyne on our post about whether her 3 previous abortions were the same spirit.
First Carolyne asks if everything that’s happening to her is pre-planned or happening by chance. The Council says particularly the fun things and the difficult things are pre-planned to help her with the lessons she wished to learn. When Bob asked if some things aren’t pre-planned but are decided in the moment, The Council replied that the subjects Carolyne is asking about are all pre-planned by her as a spiritual being.
Carolyne says she’s in a relationship that others think is wrong for her. And The Council says the way to tell if a relationship is right for you is if you find happiness and growth, and feel love for yourself and your partner.
Carolyne asks the reasons behind her 3 terminated pregnancies because she doesn’t want to repeat what she considers these mistakes again. The Council sees this comes from another lifetime of great struggle and poverty in China where she had 7 children. In her current lifetime they recommend Carolyne look carefully at whether she desires to have children or the freedom of not having children, and they emphasize there is no right or wrong path.
Carolyne asks how she can keep from terminating a pregnancy again. And The Council suggests Carolyne think about what she really wants in her life and take the steps to change this.
Carolyne asks if the spirits she aborted are sad for cutting their lives short. And The Council replies, of course not. These spirits recruited themselves to play this part for her. There is nothing to forgive. There were no wrong moves. These spirits will only wish Carolyne love.
Listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council to answer Carolyne’s questions and to receive all their guidance for her and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a comment from Diana, who’s experiencing an unplanned pregnancy at almost 42 years old, but is contemplating an abortion for financial reasons. She says she’d like to have a family, but she’s afraid of a life of struggle and poverty with a young child, and she asks The Council for any insight that might help her.
The Council says if Diana wants a family in this particular lifetime, this is her chance. And they tell her this so that later on she doesn’t regret giving up this opportunity. But at the same time The Council advises Diana there’s absolutely nothing wrong with choosing not to bring a child into a life where poverty might be the only option if this is her choice.
The Council says they see the soul of this child has agreed to come to Diana this one time only. It isn’t likely to return. They say whether she chooses to abort the pregnancy or not, either way will be the correct choice. And they say the soul of this child knows it’s here for Diana to either abort it, or if she chooses to bring it into this lifetime, it has things it would like to experience. The choice is Diana’s, and each path will have lessons and experiences for her.
The Council says the poverty is something that her and her partner chose to experience in this lifetime. Staying with this partner it’s good to think where their path can go now and then begin to create the change they would like to have. This is something The Council recommends whether they decide to have this child or not. The inner work they do will bring them to outer experiences that will help them change. And The Council says if they decide to have this child, there will be time during the pregnancy to experience these changes.
The Council says no matter what they teach, and how they show us there are many paths in front of us, the choice is always ours. No one can make the choices for us. Go in the direction of love and you’ll see your answers come to you. Let go of fear. As you raise your vibration you will see the changes you wish, the understanding you need, and the clarity to see what’s going on.
Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Diana and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions about the spiritual life of animals and their caretakers from someone who goes by the name, Trying To Learn. Trying begins by asking if animals have souls? And The Council replies, of course, and so does a blade of grass, or a tree, or a flower.
Next Trying asks if animals review their life the way humans do when they pass on to spirit. And The Council says human beings are the only souls that review their lives. An animal only knows what it has experienced and learns from feeling, not from thought. When animals return to spirit they can choose to play with the other souls there or return to a loved one who’s still in human form. And the purpose of each animal is to experience love.
Trying To Learn asks if there are spirits to care for the animals as they pass over to spirit. And The Council says as animals pass over, while the situation may look horrible from a human point of view, the animals know how to make this transition and always feel spirit’s love for them and love for the people around them.
The Council says animals are here to bring love into this incarnation and they try to teach the humans around them about compassion and love.
Trying asks if animals reincarnate as the same animal or a different animal. And The Council answers that it’s with their feelings they choose whether to come back as the same animal, a different animal, or maybe to evolve into a human.
The Council points out how animals have evolved over the years. They say you would never put a dog and a cat together or a cat and a bird. But we see pictures of a dog hugging a cat or a cat loving a bird, and each time an animal enters our reality they bring more love with them.
The Council says there are brave human souls that agree to play the part of an animal abuser to show other humans the way not to be. They are here to wake everyone else up to finding better ways to do everything in the vibration of love.
Trying brings up the point that vegetarians are often pro-choice when it comes to abortion. They don’t understand how someone can choose not eat meat, but be willing to end the life of a soul. They ask if there’s a relationship here or if these examples are different categories. And The Council replies this is two different categories: one involving a choice what to eat and on involving a choice whether to have a child or to abort it.
In their closing The Council advises all of us to go in the direction of love we’ll quickly see the changes we desire and the answers will come to us.
Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council (below) on Trying To Learns questions about the spiritual life of animals to receive their full guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Andrea who aborted her child after a 13-week pregnancy. Andrea says she doesn’t feel this abortion was pre-planned. She instead believes she allowed her free will to interfere and abort what she feels was her only chance at having a child. Andrea begged the spirit of her aborted child to come back to her in a future pregnancy, but she guesses this is unlikely because she’s 39 years old.
The first thing The Council says in this session is that abortions are always pre-planned. Then they say from where they are in spirit they don’t have to guess about Andrea becoming pregnant again. This spirit is waiting to return if this is truly what she wants.
The Council suggests Andrea ask if she’s beginning to understand she is a spirit in a physical body. If she’s not there yet, she needs to do some research on this and on pre-birth planning and past lives. She needs to get to a place where she knows there’s a reason for everything that happens.
The Council says Andrea’s abortion has brought her to a place where she needs to look deeper into these subjects of pre-birth planning and past lives, and that’s why she’s arrived at this point. When she’s able to let go of the thought that this abortion happened because her free will made a wrong decision, she’ll realize she’s right on track.
Now she should move forward and learn about other realities, and how we bring talent and challenges from these other lifetimes into our current lifetime. When she’s able to let go of the idea that something happened to her and embrace the idea she’s creating what happens, she’ll then be in a new place where she can start creating what she wants. And if a child is desired at that time, the spirit will return to Andrea because it’s agreed to and because there is a desire to be together again.
Listen to this short, but powerful 5-minute session with The Council to receive all of their guidance for Andrea and the rest of us. And let us know what you think, or if you have a question of your own for The Council.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Ashley, who asks The Council about her past and present lives, her abortion, her current boyfriend, and chakras, in addition to several other questions and a bit of background in 3 separate Comments posts, but The Council decides to talk about her purpose in this lifetime.
The Council sees Ashley has looked for many teachers and experimented with many paths, and they say this is precisely what she planned to do. They notice she’s feeling frustrated with everything she’s learned and this is because the answers are within her. The Council says Ashley is to now turn inward and realize she is the light, the love, the intelligence, and the spiritual being she’s searching for.
The Council says that while meditation is always a good way to look inward, they feel in Ashley’s case she should also read about near death experiences and past lives to hear stories of people who have passed on and come back to show there’s more going on than what takes place in this physical lifetime. They say this will help Ashley believe more in herself and begin to trust in her abilities.
The Council says being open to all these other beliefs and paths was good experience for Ashley, but it wasn’t enough and now she needs to turn inward and find out more about herself and the spirit world. And this will help her tune into a finer vibration of the love that’s felt in spirit, and will bring her joy.
The Council says Ashley was meant to be an example of a more positive and hopeful person, and as she discovers this for herself she’ll also be able to do this for her partner and the people around her. She is doing exactly what she planned and experiencing everything she wanted to experience. Now her questions about spirituality will lead her to a better understanding of herself.
The Counsel says all abortions are an agreement between the mother, the father, and the spirit of the child who is aborted.
Ashley mentions learning more about chakras and The Council says chakras are energy that helps you create your life experience with your thoughts and beliefs. If she feels this subject holds something for her, The Council suggests Ashley study this. And how she thinks about chakras will determine how it affects her life.
The Council says if there isn’t much interest in chakras, or she’s ready to go beyond these beliefs, they ask Ashley to continually find time to sit in the energy of white light and bring it into and around her body, in her surroundings, and just begin to feel it. It is always there. Stay positive and bring yourself to the vibration of happiness and joy, which is who you are as spirit.
Ordinarily we end our sessions with an exchange blessings, but in this case The Council adds that spirit wants everyone in our human reality to know they are sending us their support. And they are thinking how courageous many of us are to go through what we experience, and how many of us are saying we’re finally turning our lives around. And they say as spirit sends more and more energy, more people are open to receiving this energy.
Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Ashley and the rest of us. And let us know your thoughts.
This post is inspired by a question from a reader who uses the name Bundle of Emotions. She recently found out she was pregnant and immediately knew she would terminate this pregnancy. She says her spirit guides previously told her if she continued to be intimate with her partner, she’d get pregnant and end the pregnancy, and this is what happened. And The Council suggests the reason for this pregnancy is that she planned it in spirit.
While Bundle says she feels overwhelmed with shame about her decision to abort, she also feels relief knowing her decision is right for her. And the more she understands a reader named Beth’s questions and answers from one of our earlier posts, the less guilty she feels.
Part of the reason for this pregnancy was to connect with her higher self, and The Council feels she’s done this. Bundle wanted to go through this experience no matter what the people around her said or expected from her. The Council advises her to stay with this good feeling about terminating the pregnancy rather than the feeling of shame. And they ask her how she could feel ashamed of something she planned to experience in the first place.
The Council asks Bundle to think about how she plans to use this experience as she goes through others where she has decisions to make. They advise her to remember the feeling of making a correct decision, believing in what she desires to create, and believing in the direction she wants to take her life. The experience of this pregnancy is a catalyst to remind Bundle of these feelings.
The Council says if Bundle begins to meditate, or just sits quietly and speaks with her higher self so she can be guided daily, she’ll experience additional desirable adventures. And knowing she’s connecting with her higher self and moving forward with what she wants to experience, she will open to intuitive feelings about the people around her and herself.
You wanted to experience the part of yourself that’s much more powerful and intuitive than you normally believe. And if you listen to your higher self you’ll feel more stable, more confident about the direction you desire to take your life, and you’ll have more trust in yourself.
Listen to the entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) on Bundle of Emotions’ question to receive the full benefit of their guidance for her and the rest of us. And let us know what you think about this session.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Nacole, and the questions her abortion prompted her to ask The Council.
Nacole starts by saying she’s read the bible most of her life, prayed over everything, and was very judgmental toward women who had abortions because she thought it was selfish. But today she had an abortion and she surprisingly finds herself at peace. The Council interjects here it’s wonderful how Nacole realizes she was judgmental about something she was unable to accept, and how in spirit she set up going through an abortion so she could learn something new about this experience.
Nacole says she felt the father of her last child was her soulmate, but he left when she was seven months pregnant and she’s been devastated by this. Her current pregnancy is with a man who’s in a relationship with another woman and he disappeared when Nacole told him she was pregnant, which she expected. And so she decided to abort this pregnancy rather than go through it alone.
Nacole says she’s home now after the abortion and she was prepared to battle suicidal thoughts and extreme fatigue, but they never came. She can’t explain it, but she feels love rather than guilt or pain. She’s been thinking about the baby she aborted and all she can do is smile at the thought of her. And she feels an unexplainable impulse to make changes in her life life like stopping smoking, reduce her alcohol consumption, lose weight, and get rid of bad relationships with people who treat her poorly.
When Nacole used Google to get information about what she was feeling, she came upon our website and was pleasantly surprised by the stories of other women’s abortions and how much they reminded her of what she was experiencing. And she asks The Council six questions.
Nacole wants to know how difficult the process of changing her life will be. And The Council says, as difficult as she believes. They say Nacole planned this abortion in spirit to teach herself about her beliefs and her judgements towards other people. And The Council tells Nacole her calmness and very little cramping and bleeding is coming to her because the child she aborted is a very strong soul who is sending her love to get her past this part of her life.
The Council advises Nacole to focus on bringing one change at a time into her life. Acknowledging the changes she desires is the first step. Focus on what she desires rather than the difficulty of the change. And The Council advises Nacole to see nothing is permanent, everything can be changed, the direction of this change is her choice, and she shouldn’t give up.
Nacole asks The Council what will happen if she fails bringing these changes about, and The Council replies there is no failure. The only way Nacole can fail is if she gives up all her dreams, and they don’t see this happening.
When Nacole asks if she’ll ever get over her relationship with the father of her two year old daughter and find someone new, and The Council says why not. It’s her choice. That relationship wasn’t going in the direction she desired, so create from that point forward. Ask yourself what type of person you want to be with. Find a match in your mind and your feelings and you will easily forget what didn’t work out in this previous relationship and create a new one.
Nacole asks how the abortion can be changing her thoughts and beliefs so quickly, and The Council says it’s because she’s now tuned in to her higher self and this is what she planned in spirit before birth.
When Nacole asks why she doesn’t feel guilty about the abortion and The Council asks how she can feel guilty when she is feeling peace and there is understanding of how life can change.
And Nacole’s final question is will the spirit of this child she aborted come back to her in this lifetime, and The Council says they see this spirit moving on. What they’ve created together in this lifetime was enough for both of them to learn from and they both have different experiences they wish to learn now. But they emphasize Nacole will always be able to experience the love from this spirit even though they are both moving on.
Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council (below) to receive their guidance for Nacole and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Delfos who had an abortion about a year ago and felt very sad about it until recently when she started to feel better and clearer.
The Council sympathizes with Delfos and says it’s sad in our reality when we feel an abortion ends a connection with a soul we love. But for all abortions The Council says there is an understanding and an agreement between your soul and the soul of the fetus. You never lose that connection and there is no ending.
Recently Delfos was told by another medium that the aborted child was a girl who is very angry and sad because she wasn’t allowed to come into this life. The Council asks Delfos why this spirit would be angry for not being born when it beautifully planned with her in spirit to be aborted before they both were born? Why would this soul be angry when it is back in spirit where there is no anger, only joy and love? The Council is clear with Delfos that she was following a path that she mapped out with this spirit and her decision to abort wasn’t wrong.
When Delfos says she told this medium that she only felt love and acceptance from this aborted soul The Council enthusiastically suggests she hang on to that feeling. But Delfos says the medium tried to make her feel guilty and says she needed additional sessions to release this soul. To this The Council replies why would Delfos go back to this person who made her feel guilty and uncomfortable. And The Council adds this was just an experience Delfos created and now she can chose to accept it or not.
At this point Bob suggests Delfos might go back to this medium because she thinks the medium will be able to remove her guilt. And The Council replies only Delfos can choose to let the guilt go and hold onto the love this aborted spirit is sending her. That is what she needs to focus on. And The Council adds this aborted spirit is very much at peace and in joy, and still is sending Delfos love.
Delfos says this medium told her if she doesn’t solve this situation she won’t be able to get pregnant again, or that her future child will be angry and messed up. To this The Council says they feel Delfos knows much better than to believe this.
When this medium tells Delfos she has personality problems and her dead grandmother is worried about her, The Council says there is no worry in spirit. Spirit sees what we choose to experience and sends us love to help us through whatever we choose to go through. There is nothing wrong with Delfos.
The Council explains that Delfos attracted this medium into her life as a challenge whether to feel fear and stay in it or know better and choose to feel the love and remember her connection with this aborted spirit. It’s a situation that Delfos created so she could see the opposite of love and then remember she and her aborted child are pure love.
Listen to the 11-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Delfos and the rest of us. And feel free to ask The Council a question that’s been on your mind.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader who calls herself ‘S’, who’s sure she’s pregnant again after terminating a pregnancy a year ago. The father is a friend who isn’t interested in dating S, but she feels drawn to him for reasons she’s unable to explain. She doesn’t feel right about ending this friendship and it’s intimate physical benefits, but has felt that she should. Now she’s confused about why she’s created this pregnancy and where things are headed with the father.
The Council says the purpose of S getting pregnant was to give birth to a soul she’s shared other lifetimes with, so they could move forward and create together in this lifetime. If S feels the child isn’t wanted at this particular time, The Council says this reality will change (the child won’t come full term) and this spirit will return to S in a future pregnancy.
S asks how much power she has in creating an outcome, and how does she know whether to focus on being with the father and child as a family – or not? The Council says if S truly wants to stay with her friend as a family, she can create this with her vibration, her thoughts, and her feelings. Whether S chooses to end her relationship with her friend or not, it’s purpose was to help get her pregnant with this spirit.
S says she thinks the soul she’s pregnant with now is the same soul she was pregnant with a year ago and The Council agrees. And they repeat that if this child isn’t wanted at this particular time, this spirit will return in a future pregnancy.
The Council advises S that she has many options with this pregnancy. She can abort and wait until she meets someone else. She can abort and bring in this spirit at a later date with her friend if she chooses to stay in this relationship. She can have the child now and leave this relationship with her friend if it’s not the right relationship for her. The Council suggests S search her feelings, determine what she wants, and create from there.
Listen to this short but powerful 6-minute session on S’s questions to receive all The Council’s guidance for S and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by 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 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 questions from a reader named Tracy who’s about 2 months pregnant and scheduled to have an abortion the week after she posted her comment. After reading our post on Beth’s abortion she felt at ease, but has difficulty believing that karma won’t get her or her 1-year old son and asks about that. This will be Tracy’s third abortion and she asks if these souls have come back into her life. And she asks for advice on her spirituality, which she struggles with.
The Council starts by saying Tracy’s abortion won’t have a negative impact on her son. They say karma is what you believe and wish to create in your many lifetimes. They say there isn’t any monster karma that will make life miserable for her or her son, and ask Tracy to let go of the fear something in the future will affect them.
The Council says each of Tracy’s three abortions was pre-planned by her in spirit before she was born. They were created so she could learn about the gift of life and how wonderful it is to allow souls to come into this life and create the reality that soul chooses. And they ask Tracy what she has learned from each of these abortions.
The Council says these aborted souls have not returned to Tracy’s life, but have helped her understand her part in creating her son’s life. And they say she wants to understand the spirituality of becoming a parent and to be supportive of what her son creates rather than being a controlling mother.
The Council asks Tracy to meditate on the gift she and her son have given each other. And when she realizes she is a spirit helping another spirit move forward on his path she’ll experience great joy and love, not only for her son, but also for the souls she aborted.
The Council finishes by counseling Tracy to bring love into every situation and ask herself how she feels with each experience she creates. And they say to always ask for more understanding, more acceptance, and more allowing.
Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to receive all The Council’s guidance for Tracy.
This post is inspired by 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 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.
During a recent session The Council took the opportunity to speak in general about the subject of abortion because so many readers have asked about it. This post is devoted to that session. An audio recording of this session is included at the end of this post.
The Council notes that most questions on abortion center on the theme of feeling guilty and the need to feel forgiven. And they want everyone involved in making a decision about an abortion to understand that whatever their decision, whether to abort, or have the child and keep it or give it away, all the souls involved have agreed on this decision and there is nothing to feel guilty about.
They say this isn’t easy to understand when you are going through it because your experience in this lifetime is part of your personality and what you believe about it. But The Council suggests when you can begin to believe you are an eternal spirit in your physical body and the creator of all you experience, this difficulty becomes less burdensome.
The Council says whether you decide to abort a child or not, this is part of an agreement you made with the soul of this child to have this experience and your higher selves are very happy about whatever outcome you choose.
The Council hopes you will experience relief when you hear abortion isn’t a horrible thing and you haven’t killed a spirit or put an end to a life, because we are eternal. They say we come to this Earth reality for experiences that are emotional and physical, and they remind us to always look for the love in each experience. In the case of abortion, you giving love to a spirit that wanted to have this experience.
The Council briefly discusses the subject of giving birth to a child with disabilities, and how you are giving this child an opportunity to experience a life that it and you have chosen.
The Council finishes with a reminder it’s your privilege in every situation to find that you are spirit in your physical body, see others for who they are as spirit, and look for ways to show the love you are.
Thank you for taking time to read this post. Listen to the entire 14-minute session below to hear all The Council’s advice, and be sure to let us know what you think.
This post is about a question from a reader named Tanya who asks The Council if she had a life lesson in self-forgiveness to learn from an abortion.
The Council says there’s a life lesson in just about everything we experience as challenging or where there’s a difficult decision to make. They agree Tanya’s abortion was a life lesson, and while abortion is often about learning self-forgiveness, in Tanya’s case it was more about learning to let go of a situation when the timing isn’t right, being okay with her decision, and learning that whatever she chooses is the right choice.
The Council asks Tanya if, rather than just focusing on forgiveness, if her abortions (The Council feels there were two) have taught her something about facing challenges after the abortion. And their advise is to see where she is in the moment and go with the decision that feels best to her.
The Council says post traumatic stress comes when you don’t quite know how to be okay with the decisions you’ve made. The more Tanya learns how to let let go and move on with her life, the more she’ll learn to accept herself and have more confidence in her choices. The Council also says as Tanya learns she’s a spirit in her physical body, she’ll become more okay with her decisions.
Bob asks if Tanya’s asking for forgiveness from the soul of the unborn child was for Tanya or the unborn child. And The Council says if she felt forgiven by this spirit it would help Tanya feel better and she could move on with her life.
When Bob commented it was his understanding from previous sessions that the soul of the unborn child was already forgiving, The Council agrees. But they add that Tanya wasn’t aware of this at that time. So she asked for and received this forgiveness.
Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to benefit from all their guidance is this session.
(This session was one of two we did so the recording seem to end abruptly.)
This post is about questions from a 43-year-old reader named Sunshine who is single and has a strong desire to have her first child, but her attempts have been unsuccessful so far. She wants to know from The Council if this is possible and if she’s being punished for having two abortions 20 years earlier.
First The Council asks if Sunshine can be okay if she doesn’t become a mother. And they tell her there’s no outside source that’s punishing her for the abortions. She is entirely responsible for any sense of punishment or guilt she feels from this.
When Bob asks The Council if they think having a child is in the cards for Sunshine because they ask if she can be okay without having children, they reply that Sunshine creates what’s in the cards for her, no one else.
The Council asks Sunshine to remember that before coming into this reality she planned to go through these two abortions with the souls involved, and there was nothing disturbing about this to those spirits. They knew they’d be participating in the abortions for the experience and to help Sunshine, and everything went the way it was supposed to go.
The Council says many of the lessons we experience in this life, we plan before we get here. And there are spirits who agree to play their part in these lessons. When Sunshine is able to release any feeling of sadness or guilt or thinking of wrong-doing about these abortions, then she’ll be able to create a new child.
When Bob asks if adoption is an option for Sunshine if she continues to have difficulty getting pregnant, The Council says of course. But they quickly add that Sunshine can have a physical birth if she believes she’s the creator of her reality.
The Council says nothing is impossible if you really want it. Put yourself in the state of joy and happiness, and be grateful for each experience you come through that inspires you to want something even more. The Council says by knowing you can do this and by staying in the energy of joy and love, the creation of it becomes possible.
The Council says many people believe it becomes more difficult to get pregnant the older you get. But they remind us we are powerful spirits who can create anything we want in our lives. They tell Sunshine not to worry about her age and they tell her to work on forgiveness, happiness, gratitude, and moving forward in her life.
The Council sees it’s very, very possible for Sunshine to give birth to a child. And they remind the rest of us who want to create anything in our lives to find ways to feel grateful and happy for what we have. And they advise us to look forward, adding to that happiness, and move ahead with our mind and our feelings, always in the energy of love.
This 7-minute session is packed with advice for Sunshine and the rest of us. Listen to the recording below and let us know what you think.
This post is about questions from a reader named S. who’s learned she’s pregnant. She loves children, always wanted them, and has been determined not to have her children suffer through poverty and unhappy circumstances the way she and her siblings did.
She left the father of the fetus the day before she learned she was pregnant because the relationship was an abusive one. S. says she’s currently in school and unemployed. Recently she was told by her doctor she has endometriosis and will have difficulty getting pregnant.
S. says she’s confused. She’s aware other spiritualists say it’s bad to abort a fetus unless it’s with a loving intention. She’d like her child to have a healthy mother and father, she knows this isn’t possible right now, and feels the need for a stable career.
Just days before she learned she was pregnant S. felt great comfort in her decision to leave her ex-boyfriend, and for the first time in her life was looking forward to loving herself and creating a whole person for a future partner and family.
S. wants to know why she’s pregnant now and if aborting this fetus has been the plan all along. She’s concerned about the karmic implications of abortion, and she’d prefer this soul return to her at a time when she can offer it a beautiful life with a beautiful father.
The Council begins by telling S. that leaving an abusive relationship is a giant step for her that shows self love. Having lived through a difficult time growing up, S. made the choice with love and wisdom not to repeat similar difficulties for her future children.
The Council is clear it’s not a bad choice to abort this pregnancy if that is S.’s choice; there’s no right or wrong. It was agreed before coming to this reality that this soul would come to her as a fetus and at that time S. would decide whether or not to have the child. The soul may choose to come back at a future time, but if it decides to move on there will always be another soul ready to come forward to help S. become a mother and go through the experiences she wishes to have.
If finishing school is the thought that makes S. feel best right now, The Council says this is the direction she should go in. If the thought of having this child now and somehow having a wonderful connection with this soul even if she’s on her own feels better, The Council advises to go with that. They remind her there isn’t any right or wrong and to pay attention to the way she feels when she thinks each thought. Follow the feeling of happiness, of love, of relief, and know that she’ll have lessons either way she chooses.
The Council advises S. there is much joy ahead whatever she chooses and by looking for this joy she’ll bring it into her reality. The key is to follow the better feeling thought.
Before S. chooses she should remind herself of the choice she’s already made to leave a bad relationship. The Council reminds her this is a wonderful decision she’s made. Somehow going through different experiences growing up helped S. make this choice. When she decides whether or not to have this child, all the knowledge and the feelings she’s experienced in her life up to this point will help her choose.
Listen to the entire 16-minute session with The Council to hear their entire answer and let us know what you think.
This post is about The Council’s answer to an anonymous reader’s question about how many children she’ll have in this lifetime. She says she was told by someone she’d have one boy and one girl, but she recently had an abortion and is sad at the thought she aborted one of these children that she badly wants.
The Council begins by introducing the idea of pre-birth planning. This is the idea that as a spiritual being you plan various aspects of your physical life before you are born. They say the most important thing to understand is that as spirit you are creating your physical life. And after you come into this physical reality there continues to be a spiritual part of you that is still creating your life. And yet so many of us give away our creative power to others.
The Council asks A., who told her she’d have a boy and a girl and why does she assume they were correct when she, as a spiritual being, is the creator of her reality. Suppose she got pregnant again under circumstances that tell her she’s not ready for that child. Does that mean her chances for these two children she wants is over?
The Council says you are a powerful creative spirit in your physical body and you create what you want from your beliefs. And they say this abortion has come into her life at this time to let her learn about creation. And so if she has more abortions, is her desire for children strong enough that it doesn’t matter what anyone says if she wants to create these children in this lifetime?
The Council says everything you want is already created in vibration. And how you bring this vibration into your physical reality is by putting yourself in the highest vibration you can (love, happiness, joy). And without knowing how it will happen, imagine these children she wants in her life. Feel as if she already has it (because she already has it in spirit) and that will bring it into her physical reality.
The Council sees children in A.’s life. The question is will she create this? The Council says no one can do this for her, but she has the tools to make this happen. A.’s grief over loosing a child has brought her to the point where she can change her perception of her life and what she can create moving forward. The Council encourages A. to match the vibration of her desire for these children, to know she is the creator of her reality, and then this must come into her physical reality.
The Council asks A. to see the pattern in her life where someone came along and changed her mind about creating whatever it was that she desired. The issue of her abortion is part of a larger issue of creation and what she is capable of creating when she sticks with what she desires rather than give up her creative ability by believing what other people say.
Listen to the entire 20-minute session below to hear all of The Council’s guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a comment from A. who describes her situation as similar to L in the post, “Should I Get Pregnant After My Abortion?” A. says she never expected to have an unplanned pregnancy because she was on birth control for 17 years. But she switched to a natural contraceptive for health reasons, got pregnant, and felt an abortion was her only choice. Her boyfriend didn’t want the child, and having it on her own would be difficult.
She wondered why this happened, and she asks The Council if her sense the pregnancy would miscarry if she didn’t abort was accurate. She couldn’t continue without the support of her partner, and decided with love to abort.
The Council says A.’s decision made with the feeling of love is the right way to go, and that a miscarriage down the road was not her plan. They see she got together with this partner and agreed spiritually to experience this pregnancy, and then experience making a decision on what to do about it independently.
Her partner played his part by not treating A. as lovingly as he did at first, and having her realize she’d be raising this child alone. Wanting to go through the experience of getting pregnant and not relying on another person’s opinion on what to do, A. went with her feeling of love and chose to abort.
In her past lives The Council says A. made a lot of decisions to please other people, or just take their advice. In this lifetime A. wants to become more independent. The pregnancy was planned by her, her partner, and the child (who would have come if A. chose to keep the baby), but knowing she’d have to raise the child alone she was courageous enough to abort.
The Council asks A. to look at the situation she’s gone through with her partner and see what can be learned in love through this. His situation was to have the courage to say he didn’t want to go forward with the pregnancy. If both were unable to fulfill what they wanted, the outcome would have been very different. Both experienced something they ultimately wanted, and The Council sees this as growth for them.
The Council congratulates both A. and her partner and say it’s not always easy to accomplish what’s intended. This was a good outcome, which The Council hopes will bring them much love and happiness. Listen to the entire 9-minute session below to get the full meaning. Let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from NZ about her second abortion. She says her first abortion was a long time ago, was for the right reasons, and she has peace with it. But when she got pregnant after giving birth to her two wonderful sons it was pure panic, fear, and like something took over and made the choice to abort for her.
She had the abortion to provide a stronger love for her two boys, her partner, and herself, but as soon as she made the decision to abort it she felt regret. NZ wants to know why she was so afraid of this child. The Council says it’s because of past lives and stories she’s heard, but she’s created this in her life so she can turn it around. They say if she can change her beliefs about being pregnant, think about having a healthy child, and move forward without the suffering and the fear from before, then she has accomplished what she’s set out to learn in this lifetime with this soul.
The Council finishes with a message for anyone who’s experienced an abortion. It’s a touching thought and well worth a listen to The Council’s 15-minute session on NZ’s question.
This post is inspired by 2 question from Ali who asks The Council for insight into a recent abortion.
Ali had an abortion in her 20’s that’s never troubled her. Now she has an amazing daughter. She found out she was pregnant again recently and had an abortion because she felt afraid and stuck and couldn’t see another way out.
Ali says she doesn’t understand why she experienced so much dread and misery around this pregnancy and once it was over she felt sadness, loss, and regret. In her response to a different post Ali says she believed indecision played a part in her abortion, and she wonders how a decision that felt so right before could feel so wrong after.
The Council says Ali had many choices how she’d handle her situation, but mainly she desired freedom and the abortion was how she accomplished this. They point out that indecision wasn’t a factor; Ali was quick to terminate the pregnancy. The feelings that came after are because she experienced a loss and they remind her that this is growth.

Ask The Council audio recordings
A couple years ago we experimented with including audio recordings of Ask The Council sessions in a few of our posts. With this post we continue to make these recordings available to readers in the hope they’ll shed additional light on The Council’s teachings.
Beth’s question about abortion
In June 2013 we published a post to answer a question for The Council from a reader named Beth about the subject of abortion (Abortion, Loss, Reincarnation, Life, Love, Expansion – Beth’s Story: A Spiritual Perspective). Interestingly, but maybe not surprisingly, this post has received many more views from readers than almost every other post except our Welcome post, and it has received almost three times the number of comments of our next most commented post (also excluding our Welcome post).
One of those comments is from a reader named Emmy who says:
“I think this post is great in helping understand [abortion], as it can be overwhelming at times. I had an abortion in 2012 and I still think about it every day. And I want to ask The Council if the spirit will come back to me in the future, and was it part of our soul plans?“

We feel the spirit will come back
The Council begins by posing a couple clarifying questions for Emmy before offering their answer:
“You want to know if the soul will come back in your future, in this particular life?… in another life in what you consider the future?… will it return?
“Yes, we feel it will, in other realities – in what you would consider future lifetimes. There is never a loss or an ending when you are together with spirits who have come to help you.”
“This spirit may choose not to come in as her child. We see they will choose to be together, probably many more times, but in different roles.”
This post describes a session with The Council in response to the comment and questions below from Beth on the subject of abortion. The session is full of thought-provoking ideas on lots of different subjects of interest to many people in addition to Beth. Particularly interesting to us is light that The Council sheds on how our spirit’s intentions often manifest in surprising and unexpected ways in our human experience.
Ordinarily we like to offer a sort of running commentary in these posts if we feel it can add some clarity to something The Council says during a session, but it seemed to make this post too long and wordy. It also seemed to place more emphasis on understanding what The Council is saying rather than on appreciating the feeling of the energy offered by The Council and spirit in response to Beth’s questions. More and more we are learning from The Council that what’s important about spiritual understanding is that it’s a focus of attention that allows you to feel in your physical experience more of the love you are as a spiritual being.
As you read through the post, see if you can feel the energy of this session resonating with your spirit. If a clear understanding doesn’t come right away, be patient with yourself and let your connection to who you are as a spiritual being shed light on the material presented here. Give yourself some time. You are always welcome to use the Comment section following the post to ask a question about this material and we’ll do our best to reply.
Beth’s Comment and Questions
“I have a question about abortions as it relates to the Soul and the Soul’s agreement…the Soul of the child, specifically.
“You see I have unfortunately had to make the decision (twice) in my life to terminate what I perceived as ‘untimely’ pregnancies.
“I have a lot of guilt around these decisions, not because of any religious reasons, but more because I am not sure what I did was the right decision for my life’s path.
“Also, I often feel sad wondering how those two Souls (or maybe it was the same Soul) feel/felt that I chose to terminate their little lives.
“I fully believe that those Souls made some type of agreement with me, but I’m wondering if you could shed light on what those agreements may have been.
“Did those little Souls know that they would play this role?
“Is it the same Soul trying to come back in?
“Would I be able to find out more about them, and who they might have become had I chosen differently?
“If we come back in similar Soul groups, could this Soul have been one that I also lost in a previous life (I believe I was pregnant when drowned)?
“I realize that these are many questions, not one, but I am grateful for your input.”
You Can Not Stop Life
Reading Beth’s comment and questions to The Council at the beginning of the session, they were quick to comment at the end of her first sentence.
“We really want to laugh here… the word abortion… what does it mean?
“Abort… Stop… Stop life?
“You can not stop life.
“It is all in choosing, and agreements, and experiences.
“And so we just wanted to add that in there.
“Beth did not stop a life… did not cut a life short… everything went as planned.”
