Is Leaving My Current Job Advisable Now?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, MindfulLoving, whos says that due to the current COVID crisis I’ve begun having a lot of anxiety issues related to job stress. I also feel restless and can’t sleep at night because of stress and anxiety.

The Council says many, many people are under stress from COVID. Understand that everyone has agreed in spirit to experience this. How you handle it is your choice. You can meditate, pray, and think better feeling thoughts about not going into the panic and anxiety or let this overtake you. The #1 thing to understand is that you called in COVID to see how you’d handle it, how you’d change your thoughts and trust more, believe, and visualize things getting better.

MindfulLoving says they’re worried they’ll start having panic attacks if the situation continues. The Council says the situation doesn’t matter. What matters is how you handle any situation. Whether it’s COVID, loss of family or friends, or loss of a career you want, what you chose to experience was how you’re going to handle the situation. When things get hard to handle, will you stop and examine it and think of things that make you feel better, and change the direction of your thoughts and energy?

MindfulLoving says they have a young child and I think I’m unable to manage everything at the present time. The Council says you can manage it all. It’s your focus that will determine what you can handle.

MindfulLoving says to cope with the stress they’ve begun reading books about meditation and mindfulness. I also read a lot about stock trading and entrepreneurship. I want to be financially independent and I have some savings, but not a lot. Can The Council guide me if leaving my current job would be advisable? The Council says at this moment it’s not advisable to leave your job. Treat your job as something that’s there to help you during this time. Try not to stress about your job. Do what you can.

MindfulLoving asks The Council if the path of entrepreneurship is for me and will I succeed in this? The Council says you’ll only succeed if you change your thoughts about how you look at your situation. It’s your wish to find more positive reactions to everything that happens. When you can get hold of this, in the future you’ll succeed in what you choose.

MindfulLoving asks what field should I be in and when should I make the switch? The Council says time-wise we always say it’s up to you how you manage to focus on what you want and to focus on the positive. Do the inner work of visualizing everything being okay. This will happen as you practice your positive thoughts and visualizations. Then you’ll get more ideas about what you want to do and the kind of work you want.

When you came into this reality you mentioned you wanted to teach others. Whatever field you go into, you’d learn it and then pass the information on and make it easier for other people. Don’t stress so much about what field you want to go into.

Focus on yourself and know if you believe you can take care of your child, you will. If you believe you can’t take care of your child, you won’t be able to. Work on your beliefs. If you believe you can handle this job, not forever but for a time, and then it’ll change and something better will come along. You’ll bring this in. It’s what you choose to focus on daily that matters.

Why Am I Experiencing Life Long Depression and Anxiety?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Teri, who asks why her higher self chose to experience chronic lifelong depression and anxiety? Teri says that despite working very hard to be happier, to love myself, and to find meaning and purpose in my existence, I mostly feel ambivalent about being on Earth in a physical body. I never felt I was living a life that suits me. Life feels like just surviving.

The Council says if Teri has ambivalent thoughts about being here and feels like she’s just surviving, the energy your thoughts are putting out will attract more of these situations to you and make what you experience be not enough, sad, and depressed. Depression usually occurs when you don’t understand what’s going on with your thoughts and what you’re allowing yourself to create. There’s confusion about the direction you want your life to go in. Trying to live a life that’ll give you what you want isn’t happening because you don’t understand your depression is really being caused by you.

Stop and ask yourself what you’re thinking about when you feel depressed. Ask yourself why you’re not moving forward, and meditate on this for as long as it takes you to understand that your depression and anxiety are caused by no one but you. The reason you want to experience this depression is that you want to change it. You are in control of the direction your life goes.

In spirit you wanted to experience going off course so you’d read a lot OF books to bring you back on course. Not so much self-help books, but reading books on miracles that happen to people, like Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moorjani. You have experienced miracles in other lifetimes. In your current lifetime you went deeper into the depression and anxiety to change these, but also to show the people around you how to accomplish these changes.

Read books about people that have changed their lives and how they go about it. Read books about angels. These books will give you the push you need to begin to change your energy. Then more things will come into your life that you desire. As you become aware of this energy change you’ll create better and better situations.

Teri says her big dreams and desires are a constant source of longing and suffering because they’re unlikely to come true. The Council says thinking your dreams and desires won’t come true will all by itself keep your dreams from coming true. You have to learn to change these thoughts to where you’re dreams will come true even if you don’t know how they’ll come true.

Teri says she’s spent over 30 years trying to live by spiritual principles. She’s been focusing on and feeling ease and joy, trying to change self-limiting and negative beliefs, trying to manifest her dreams, practicing appreciation, and being of service to others. But this doesn’t change the fact that I still feel depressed and disappointed with myself and the life I’m living.

The Council asks if Teri experienced joy when she was doing these things, or were you doing them with the idea they’d change your life? When you do for others you should get a natural feeling of joy. If you continue to do for others and practice positive thoughts, focus on how you feel. Look for the joy. The more you can do where you feel joy, the easier it’ll become to feel better and better.

Teri says it’s like there’s a clear limit to my potential here on Earth. And The Council says it’s only the limit that you create with your beliefs and your thoughts.

Teri asks if it’s possible that her soul simply wanted to have the experience of hating her life? And The Council says a soul never wants to experience hating it’s life. Your soul goes into a reality and creates things that are challenging with the thought that it will be interesting. I’ll find a way to change this and I’ll feel love again. I’ll find a way to bring love into this reality.

You came into this life to have the challenge of depression and anxiety so you could have the experience of changing it to love. And every time you experience changing something that was difficult for you, the energy goes out to help others who also need to change something difficult.


Listen to the entire 8-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to answer Teri’s questions and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question.

Healing Panic Attacks

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Wendy, who says she has a long history of anxiety and panic attacks that she’s already managed to grow and heal a great deal from. She says there’s a lot of fear behind her anxiety and when it turns into a panic attack the situation gets ugly quickly. She says she’s unable to function, she shakes, becomes nauseous, paces for hours, and becomes terrified she’s going to die. Family and maternal responsibilities are a huge trigger for these attacks, which saddens Wendy because there’s nothing more important to her than being joyfully present with her children.

The Council says the anxiety and panic is a familiar feeling for Wendy from her past lives. They see three past lives where Wendy has lost children. The panic that she’s going to die she experienced in Egypt where her children were taken away when she was a slave. The most recent life was in World War II where Wendy was separated from her three children in a concentration camp and died never knowing what happened to her children. She didn’t know how to stay calm in that environment and so the anxiety and panic she experiences in her current lifetime comes from this life during WW2. There was also a lifetime where there was a loss of children in a fire.

The Council says Wendy’s lesson in her current life is to get in touch with who she is as a spiritual being in a physical body. Many of these unconscious memories come back into this lifetime because they want to be healed. For Wendy, her current lifetime incorporates these unhealed feelings from these past lives.

Wendy’s children have come into her current life so she could learn to love them and to know she doesn’t need to be with them all the time. Her job was to bring her children in and give them the opportunity to live a life the way they need to create it. These children have agreed to be in this lifetime for Wendy to watch them grow, appreciate them, get in touch with her feelings, and ask why she’s afraid of not having enough time with them. The Council says she’ll have all the time in the world to be with her children in her current life.

The Council suggests Wendy think that she hasn’t created a path in her current life that involves loss. This panic, depression, and anxiety is a great teacher and Wendy has created this in her life to bring these unhealed memories forward so she can heal them. Your children are safe and you are safe. There isn’t a need in this lifetime for pacing and being nervous. These past life feelings are here to teach you to look at yourself and think how wonderful it is that you have these children that you can be with and you can also have time away from them. You aren’t here to stay in panic, die early, and be without your children. Your children won’t be taken from you in your current lifetime.

The Council suggests daily meditation on the fact that you and your children are spiritual beings in physical bodies. Imagine sitting with the souls of your children before you came into your current life and thinking how you can help each other grow and what will you teach each other? Your children are here to show you happiness, to show you the light within them, and to show you that you also have that light within you.

The fear Wendy experiences from her past lives is what keeps her from enjoying her children in her current life. Appreciate your children. Look at the joy they bring into this life and choose to concentrate on that. When you can change your thoughts, one thought at a time, the panic will lessen. The thought of losing your children will slowly disappear. It’s your choice how you look at your situation. This lifetime you can choose to heal the past lives with the loss of children, with the loss of companions, with the loss of family. How brave you are to bring all of these feelings in and decide to heal them and feel better in this life.

The Council suggests in addition to meditating or sitting and watching your children and thinking how wonderful they are, perhaps getting some massage to help your body relax. As you relax the areas in your chest and solar plexus this will bring more peace and you’ll be able to change the way you feel physically and mentally.

Your children are with you to help you heal. That was their spiritual agreement so you could experience a wonderful life with them. And they’re here to learn their lessons of seeing you the way you are and seeing the change you can bring about. As you change, your children will learn they have the power to change things in their lives. It’s a beautiful circle of healing.

Spiritual Purpose of Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Jhendi, about depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. First they ask if there’s a spiritual purpose for these issues.

The Council says there is always a spiritual reason for experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD and it is always pre-planned in spirit. Sometimes in spirit you decide to experience these and see how you can turn them around in your human life. Sometimes you volunteer to go through these to have the people around you learn compassion and patience from this experience. And sometimes it’s to start a group or organization that works to bring understanding and change to these issues.

Jhendi says if we’re supposed to learn from these issues, does taking medication affect our learning since we get through the issue with pills rather than working through the problems on our own. This is a very interesting question.

The Council says if you get relief from medication you can take it. When you’re in a happier state you’re able to work through your problems. Many people need some sort of therapy to talk to a professional about what they’re experiencing. The Council says not to take medication and assume it’s sufficient by itself. The medication will ease you enough to deal with what comes up for you and show you how to handle it.

The Council recommends always taking the time, even if it’s a couple minutes a day, to meditate. And when they say, meditate, they mean that all you have to do is ask for the vibration of love to come into your life and find two things every day to be grateful for.

Listen to our entire 3-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Jhendi and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Pay Attention to Your Feelings

This post is inspired by follow-up questions from a reader named Wendy, who asks The Council if they see her doing the inner work they recommend and if she’s on the right path at the moment. And The Council replies that if she continues with this work and focuses more on the desires she wishes to create in this lifetime, they feel she’ll get there.

Wendy asks if she’s doing well with her son. And The Council asks Wendy what she thinks, because they always see us doing well, whether we consider we are doing well or not. You are teaching each other and learning, and you will find better ways as you grow.

Wendy says she struggles with anxiety and often wonders if she’ll get where she wants to go. And The Council says as she focuses more on her desires and as she appreciates the positive changes she sees happening, she’ll experience less anxiety.

Wendy is concerned she may move beyond the relationships she has now with the people she loves so much. And The Council says everyone is a spirit and grows at their own pace. Even if she goes beyond these people, she’ll help them move forward with her energy and her love, even if they aren’t on the same path as her.

Wendy wonders whether time is a factor in whether the soul she aborted will return to her. And The Council says her beliefs and thoughts are what determines if the soul will return to her. There is a pre-birth agreement with this soul, but if she believes something can interfere with letting this happen, she can create that instead.

Wendy asks how she can keep her negative and fearful thoughts away so she can manifest the joy, love, and success we all deserve. And The Council asks her to pay attention to her feelings. Her feelings are 100% more correct than when she tries to figure out the answer with her brain and will tell her the direction she wants to go.

The Council sees Wendy able to change her life and create the life she desires.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Wendy and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Son’s Pre-Birth Planning About Anxiety

This is an interesting post inspired by a question from a reader named Susan who goes by the blog handle, Mariner2Mother. She says her 13-year old son is extremely sensitive to energy, but he experiences a lot of anxiety and she asks what her son’s pre-birth plans were around this anxiety.

The Council sees Susan’s son is very sensitive to energy and that he planned  to experience this anxiety so he could learn to overcome it. This anxiety comes from another lifetime where many people would seek his advice and his healing abilities, but there were others that were afraid of what he could do and they killed him.

Because he enjoyed helping many people in this other lifetime and that life was cut short, he created similar experiences in this lifetime to learn from them, but as a child he’s doesn’t understand what’s happening yet.

The Council says Susan and her son will gain a deeper understanding of what he’s going through if they study meditation, yoga, and energy work. She should talk to him about spirits and ask him to write down his feelings and what he thinks is going on. In another lifetime he was an accomplished writer and The Council says writing will help him now.

Susan mentions she’s now home schooling her son because he was so anxious and overwhelmed in Middle School last year, and The Council says this was a very good decision.

Susan says she’s looking for reassurance her son will grow up and things won’t always be as difficult for him as they seem right now. And The Council asks Susan to focus on her son being fine in the present instead of the future when he grows up. Her son needs to know right now he’s fine and that he’s working on what he wishes to experience in this lifetime.

The Council adds Susan is here to help her son see how wonderful it is that his life is on track with what he planned to experience, and he’s bringing in this anxiety to experience turning it around. And he can ask on a daily basis for signs of this from spirit and The Council says they’ll hear him and help.

Listen to this very interesting 10-minute session with The Council (below) for all their guidance for Susan, her son, and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Psychic Abilities in Other Lifetimes?

This post is inspired by a question from Darla, who says she’s had psychic experiences her entire life and has always felt very spiritually connected. But she struggles with the anxiety these psychic experiences cause and asks The Council if she was psychic in other lifetimes.

The Council says when people begin to tap into their psychic ability, in some cases it causes anxiety and these people imagine they’ve done something wrong in a past life and are afraid. But The Council says your psychic ability is part of who you really are and everyone has these abilities.

In a lifetime in Germany The Council says Darla had the ability to hold objects like jewelry in her hands and receive psychic information for people from these objects. (In our session they refer to this as Kinesiology; we suspect a more appropriate term is Psychometry.) And they say Darla also had the ability in that lifetime to see a person’s problems and the guidance that benefited them.

The Council says because Darla helped people with her psychic ability in another lifetime, this ability is appearing to her again in this lifetime. And they suggest she read books on mediums and begin to study auras. She brought this psychic ability into her life again so she could help herself and others.

The Council doesn’t see a deep rooted fear that Darla is asking about. Instead they see this fear as something in Darla’s present life and it stems from a lack of familiarity with her psychic perceptions. They advise her to play more with her psychic ability and they predict this fear will disappear.

The Council says Darla wants to discover more about herself in this lifetime than what she experiences in normal day to day physical living. In spirit she thought it would be fun to face fearful situations in her life and see if she could find the courage to turn this fear around. These are the reasons she decided to bring this psychic ability into this lifetime, and The Council says she’ll be able to do this.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to get all their guidance for Darla and the rest of us.

Fear is like a gorilla on a leash
Following you around.

Many of you have nicknamed him Anxiety.

Sometimes he will bang on your chest for attention.
And sometimes you may feel like running away.

We suggest you offer it love and attention.

We guarantee the chain will dissolve.

You are not here to ignore it or outrun it,
You are here to transform it.

—The Council
