Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Grandfather’s Passing

This post in inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, about death and the experience we have during the last days and hours of our lives. Her grandfather, who loved her deeply, is currently passing and she wonders what he’s experiencing while she’s with him in hospice.

The Council says each person has their own experience when it’s their time to pass. Her grandfather was connecting to others in spirit who passed on before him, and as this became clear to him he would come back into this reality. The Council describes it as going back and forth with one foot in each place.

Sarah asks The Council for a better understanding of what her grandfather was experiencing in his last hours, a better understanding of the connection the two of them shared, and what things will be like for him after he passes. The Council says where he is after his passing he only experiences joy and love. The releasing of her grandfather’s body and returning to spirit was a great experience for him.

The Council asks Sarah to review this lifetime with her grandfather. What has she learned from him? The Council believes Sarah and her grandfather have come together after a previous lifetime where there was just the two of them. They were uneducated and living off the land. In his current lifetime it was important for her grandfather to support his family so he didn’t continue the pattern from that past life where there wasn’t enough food and shelter.

The Council says as Sarah gets past the grief of her grandfather’s passing she can look for all the things in his life to be grateful for. They ask Sarah if she can take this perception of gratefulness and love, and give it to the people that are around her in her current lifetime. And can she find things to appreciate in each of these people before they pass on?

Sarah asks if it’s important to be with her grandfather as he passes on. The Council says each person is different. Some have no idea you are sitting by the bed for days because they’re in conversation with the spirit world and they’re resting before leaving the body. Some become conscious again and are very happy to have family present.

Sarah asks if he’s aware of what’s going on when he appears to be unconscious. The Council says most people are aware, even when you think they’re not. They can still hear. Sometimes the spirit is lifting out of the body and they’re able to see who’s in the room even though they appear unconscious.

Sarah asks if her grandfather is experiencing fear. The Council says they don’t see this for him. Some do experience fear until they see the light and the other people who have crossed over before them, and the fear leaves them. As they see spirits and angels and experience all the love that is coming towards them, there isn’t any fear going into the light.

Sarah asks if she’ll experience more of this lifetime with him, but in another form? The Council says to ask her grandfather for signs he’s around, and ask for dreams. Speak with him as if he’s still in his physical body and see what happens. As she tells her grandfather what’s going on in her life, see what happens around her and she’ll experience the connection is still there.

Sarah closes by saying she’d like to understand the end of life process from a spiritual point of view so she’ll be able to navigate it in the future. The Council says anyone who is getting ready to leave this particular lifetime, look for the light, think of people you have loved who have gone on before you, feel the energy of love, and it will carry you right into the spirit world.

Listen to our 8-minute session (below) to hear The Council’s answers for Sarah and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about them.

Opening to the Love All Around

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who asks The Council how they can give and receive love. PE says they are very closed and there’s a lot of grief in their heart.

The Council says they see the grief in PE’s heart and they recommend working on the heart chakra by sitting a few moments twice each day and picturing a little flame in the heart area. Picture this flame getting bigger and bigger and eventually tuning in to what this increasingly larger flame feels like. This will begin to open your heart.

PE says they struggle with being warm and open with people and this makes them feel lonely and friendless. The Council says PE has abandonment and trust issues and there was a lot of hurt, grief, and sadness from past experiences and past lives. In this lifetime they made a decision to turn these emotions around and feel love and trust again, but it is difficult to do this quickly when you have gone through as much as PE has.

The Council says if PE is uncomfortable giving and receiving love and trusting people, then buy a beautiful plant to take care of. Play music for this plant, water it, sing to it. Show kindness and love to this plant. After you’ve done this for a while perhaps you can have a favorite tree that you can visit every day. Sit with this tree, talk to it, feel the energy the tree gives back to you. Then you can get an animal to express love to. Slowly you’ll begin to trust and let the energy of love in.

PE has heard there are guides and angels around us, but she doesn’t feel their presence and says they don’t know how to connect to it. The Council says PE would connect by doing the exercise with the light in the heart. As you show love to anything – the plant, the tree, the animal – you open your heart and you will begin to feel this connection.

PE says there’s a deep and painful emptiness in their heart, but they really want some kind of connection with other people. PE adds that sometimes they cry for no apparent reason because of so much sadness in their heart that they are unable to explain.

The Council says just by asking this question, PE is in the part of their path where they’ve discovered what they want – the connection with other people and the healing of their heart – so they are exactly where they need to be. And if they follow the steps The Council has suggested, their life will begin to change.

The Council says the vibration you carry attracts people that are a match to that vibration. With a heavy heart, and grief, and sadness, and not trusting, it’s more difficult to bring in the more trusting and gentle souls. As PE does this daily meditation on the heart, they will begin to accept love from the people that want to show it to them, and they will attract more of the kind, loving people they need to help them along their path.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us, and let us know your feelings.

Spiritual Significance of Autism

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named, EG, who asks The Council why so many people are born with Autism if we plan our lives in spirit before we’re born. We encourage you to listen to the recording of this session, which is posted below. There’s more information than we included in the written portion of this post.

The Council says spirits that come into this reality that have chosen Autism have done this to show others here that there are different ways to perceive things, different ways to communicate, and that there are other realities. People who have chosen to be Autistic are very advanced souls who come from other star systems where talking isn’t necessary and they communicate with their minds. Autistic people are filled with love and are very happy living this way. Most people think they are living in their heads, but they are communicating with other advanced souls in the star systems they came from.

It’s very brave for Autistic people to come to our Earthly reality and be so different and try to get the people in this reality to understand them. Autistic people have gone beyond living the way we live in this reality. As they’ve moved on and learned other ways to be and other ways to show love, they have chosen to return to our Earthly reality to teach us these ways.

When these ascended souls who have chosen to be Autistic return to Earth, they wish to be accepted and wish the people around them will feel love for them even though they are so different and so misunderstood. These people aren’t less than us; they’re more advanced than we are. As we learn to love Autistic people, the door opens to deeper understanding of our reality. They come to Earth to teach us greater understanding and to open to differences beyond what we currently understand. This is Autistic peoples’ purpose.

Autistic people are our teachers and we need to sit with them more and experience a loving feeling for these individuals. As we stay in the vibration of love, things advance on many levels. There are many angels around Autistic people feeding energy and love to the people around them so we can get to a place where we have greater understanding.

There isn’t something missing from Autistic people . They don’t need fixing and to be like us, as we often think, but they can teach us. They are here to help us grow in many ways. As we begin to understand this, things in our reality will begin to change.

Autistic people understand what’s going on, but they want to show us another way. This is why sometimes in trying to get us to understand them, they become frustrated when they can’t get their ideas across to us.

The Council says words are an ancient way of communicating and if we could look at how individuals in other realities communicate, we’d realize we’re in the Stone Age. As we advance to other forms of communication we won’t need words, and The Council says we’ll get there in time.

Listen to the recording of our 14-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Very Confused and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Angels, Spirit Guides, and Other Non-Physical Beings

This post answers a question from a reader named Jan about angels, guides, spirits, channeled entities, and other non-physical beings who watch over and interact with human beings. Jan  understands she’s an eternal soul here to bring love from spirit, but she’s fascinated by The Council’s take on these other non-physical beings.

The Council begins by mentioning that angels are spiritual beings that haven’t had a physical life as a human being. But many other spirits and guides have lived physical lives in human bodies and come back to us in the form of channeled guidance. The Council also mentions that although angels are made from light and energy, they can appear to humans in any way we believe they will look.

The Council says when these spirits and guides leave their human bodies they often volunteer to help the humans that remain by coming to us with healing or channeled information that’s brought to us by people who allow this information to come through them.

The Council says it’s the energy and the feeling of love that comes through the words rather than the words themselves, and they promise if you read or listen to it, the understanding will come to you a little at a time.

The Council reminds us that even though we may be in a human body, part of us is still simultaneously in the spirit world. This can be a surprise for those of us who think when we come into a human body we leave spiritual reality behind.

When Bob asked The Council about non-physical beings who might be interested in spreading fear instead of love, they respond that many people have a need to believe there’s something evil ‘out there’ that’s creating all this horrible stuff  that’s going on. The Council says we’ve created this to turn it around – to realize the fear and evil do not exist.

The Council says spirit is working very hard to constantly send love and supportive energy to us humans, and they are answering our questions, whether we get the answer in a dream or a feeling.

Listen to the entire 9-minute recording of our session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jan and her question on non-physical beings.

Do We Need a Mother’s Womb to Reincarnate?

This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks why we need a mother’s womb to reincarnate into this lifetime. According to The Council we don’t need a mother’s womb to reincarnate, but this is something we’ve chosen at this particular time because it’s a physical and emotional experience we desire.

The Council says in the beginning when spirit came into this reality the womb wasn’t needed. Spirit would project itself into trees and animals by an act of creation. After a while we desired a change and decided to experience this reality by being born from a mother’s womb to know the physical sensation of this process.

The Council says Earth is a teaching ground for physical and emotional experience, and at this particular time when you chose to come here, being born through your mother’s womb is part of the knowledge you acquire. They also say there are spirits who take the place of people who no longer wish to be in this reality, but there are still lessons to be learned by other people from these people. And The Council says there are angels who pop in and out of physical form to help people, and experience some knowledge while they’re here. And the mother’s womb isn’t needed in these instances.

The Council emphasizes that life is constantly changing and while we want to experience birth through the mother’s womb at this time, they also say we’ll eventually create a way to enter this reality where the mother’s womb isn’t necessary.

Bob’s curiosity about The Council’s comments regarding angels prompted some additional questions and some interesting answers about the bodies the angels incarnate into, the number of angels that choose to inhabit physical form at one time, and the amount of time they spend here.

The Council briefly touches on the subject of cloning and goes on to say they think we’ll go beyond cloning to the point where we can experience birth without the mother’s womb as an adult or a child, simply by willing this process of creation through our mind.

The Council emphasizes that our freedom and our choices are limitless and it’s their hope we’ll go on to experience different ways to incarnate into this reality, and they remind us whatever we wish to create is possible.

They also remind us there are people who choose to leave this reality very peacefully just by willing it when they feel they have learned enough, rather than create a disease or an accident.

The Council finishes with a reminder to enjoy your life, be grateful; stay in positive choices,  positive actions, and positive reactions; and continue to serve your purpose which is to spread love everywhere. And they close with a reminder they are always with you.

This was an exciting 17-minute session that touches on several noteworthy points about the power of who we are as spiritual beings in a physical body. Listen to the entire session below and let us know what you think.

What is the Name of My Spirit Guides?

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

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

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

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

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

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