Will I Find Meaningful Work in Addition to Motherhood?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sara Jane, who says her life is in transition and she feels on the brink of something new. She says it’s exciting, but there’s also anxiety because she’s the mother of three young children and financially dependent on her husband. Lately she feels something beyond motherhood calling her, but she can’t figure out what it is. Sara Jane never felt she had a calling for a career outside of being a mother, which she says is a great job, but doesn’t pay anything.

The Council says being a mother prepared you for what you want to do with the rest of your life. One of the things you wanted to do was teach children. If you don’t want to go back to school and get a degree in teaching, you need to be around children in any capacity. You can show them much love and understanding. You wanted to reach out to children. And so it’s good you chose to become a mother first to understand children and go in this direction.

Even though your spirit was planning to teach children, from what The Council sees in your other life times recently, it would also be good for you to show adults around. Explain the environment to them. You can learn about history and be a guide in a museum or be a tour guide. Teach and show children or adults, giving them direction, understanding, and knowledge. In the future this could lead to taking people to different places on tours if this is something you want.

She asks if she’ll find meaningful work in addition to motherhood in this lifetime and The Council says, yes, if you begin to look and give yourself time to research different positions and what you need to acquire them.

Sara Jane asks if her main purpose in life was to be a mother, and The Council says it was part of her main purpose, but not all of it.

Sara Jane says part of the transition she’s facing likely includes leaving her marriage and she’s anxious to know if she’ll be self-sufficient and happy creating a life for herself and her children some day. The Council says they don’t see you leaving your marriage right away. When you go through more of your transition perhaps there will be a more positive change in your marriage so you won’t need to leave your husband.

The Council says if Sara Jane is open to learning more in all parts of her life, they feel her ideas about what she wants from herself and her husband will change. And they advise giving the marriage time.

Is it Right to No Longer Yearn for a Partner and Babies?

This post answers questions for The Council from a woman who goes by the name, Merry Muse, who says she’s a 35 year old female who feels all her friends, family, and peers are committing to relationships and having children. For the longest time I yearned for the same thing. Now I find myself feeling so joyful being single and what I’m getting to do for our community, I no longer yearn for a partner or babies.

The Council says they love Merry Muse’s choice of the word “joyful”. When you believe there’s one road you’ve chosen and then your higher self brings you to experience something else and you find joy there, it becomes up to you to choose the joy and appreciate it and want more of it, or to commit to what everyone else is doing.

Merry asks The Council if this alternative path is right for her? The Council says when you think of a married life with children, how does that make you feel? When you think of what you’re doing with your community now, how does that make you feel? The right path for you will be how you feel. When the questions you’re asking are followed by a feeling, you’ll know what direction is right for you.

People around you are committing to having children and you thought you wanted that also. Now because of your journey it’s your choice whether to go on the new path where you feel joy, or do you just commit to a life where everyone else is having children and this is probably what’s expected? The Council suggests Merry Muse reach for the joy.

The Council says just because Merry Muse may choose to remain single and work in the community doesn’t mean she can’t change her path again at a latter date and go back to wanting a marriage and a family. Just enjoy where you are right now. And if what you’re doing right now brings you joy, you’re moving in the right direction and doing what will bring you growth.

Merry Muse says this alternative path feels right to her, but from society’s viewpoint I’m not fulfilling my reproductive role. The Council asks if Merry Muse is married to society? And is society bringing her joy with what they expect from her? What do you feel, and follow this path.

Listen to the entire audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Merry Muse and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it. Or ask The Council an unrelated question of your choosing.

Did I Marry the Right Man?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Curious, who asks if she married the right man and if they pre-planned their marriage. She’s asking because when they got married they went through some difficult times even though things seem to be working out fine now. She sometimes thinks that something will pop in out of nowhere and they’ll be going through those bad times again.

The Council says of course Curious married the right man and they pre-planned this in spirit. The Council asks if Curious is able to appreciate that things are working out now and focus on these happier times rather than worrying about what happened earlier? Nothing will pop in out of nowhere and create bad times. What creates bad times is your thoughts.

The lesson is being in the present and know that if something comes into your life, you now know you can both work through it. And this is a clue where you want to go in this lifetime. Everything isn’t always happy. Life happens, but you’ll be able to work through whatever happens.

The Council suggests Curious avoid thinking something bad can happen again. Concentrate on the fact that she and her husband have changed the bad times they experienced. You’re in happy times now, and no matter what comes along, you’ll be able to work through it again.

The Council sees this should be a good marriage for everyone involved – a marriage with some easy lessons. As you learn to appreciate each other and stay in the vibration of joy and love, you’ll move through whatever problem you need to create and work through it. You both created this life, you both planned for this life, but you planned for it to be easy.

Curious asks if The Council sees her and her husband having a long happy married life and are they meant to have any more children. The Council says you can create a long and happily married life if that’s what you wish to create. And they do see another child for Curious and her husband.

The Council congratulates Curious and reminds her to be in the present and appreciate what she and her husband have already worked through. They are two spirits that have come together to learn together and enjoy together. Stop thinking something will pop in unless you wish some happiness to pop in.

Listen to the entire 4-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Curious and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

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.

What Message Can I Give My Children?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Wendy, who asks what spiritual gifts her children have in this lifetime and what they’ve come into this reality to do.

The Council says if the older son continues on the path of meditation and spiritual growth that Wendy has encouraged him on, he’ll work with people who have emotional problems.

The Council encourages Wendy’s older son to read, The Littlest Angel, by Charles Tazewell, about angels before they come to this life on the Earth path and how they choose the people who’ll be around them. And according to what the angel wishes to learn, other spirits agree to fill that role for them, whether it’s a good role or a difficult one. And The Council encourages Wendy to get her older son to talk about this book.

The Council says in Wendy’s role as mother, it’s good if she can ask her eldest son throughout the week who he’s spoken to, perhaps what games he’s played, and  what his friends talk to him about. Wendy will see he’s interested in how his friends’ minds work. If his friends have problems, he may sometimes discuss this with Wendy to get advice he can pass along to them.

The Council says if Wendy’s older son doesn’t choose to help people with emotional problems, he might go in the direction of medical research, which is something he did in another lifetime, working with plants and understanding how they help the body and the mind. Have plants in your home and casually explain their names to him and what they’re reputed to be able to do.

As your older son develops, there will be people he meets that will pull him away from the path he was on, but there’s no need for Wendy to worry about this. She should always be available to talk about what’s going on in his life. If he chooses the more difficult path, he’ll come back to one of the two paths he’s shown interest in. But this more difficult path will introduce him to spirits that have agreed to show him more drama and difficulty so he could learn this and have a greater understanding when he returns to the path he originally chose. This will occur when your oldest son is about 16-18 years old.

The younger child will be more into organizing groups and planning events. He has the opportunity to go into politics. There is a choice where he may also go into building homes for the more needy to make life more pleasurable for them. Play with your younger son with anything where he can build so he can awaken to what he wishes to experience in this lifetime.

The Council says Wendy was an oracle and a shaman with American Indians in a previous lifetime. She would have images of what the tribe should do and she could see future events. Your older son in your current lifetime was part of your tribe in this past lifetime. That’s why in your current lifetime you’d like him to meditate, as it was done in this American Indian lifetime. In that past life you taught your son about having visions, medicine, and about the great spirit.

What Is My Soul’s Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who asks what was their soul’s purpose?

The Council says it is every soul’s #1 priority to bring the love, happiness, and joy you experience in spirit, into your physical reality.

Anonymous asks what were some of the main themes they were meant to learn?

The Council says one of Anonymous’s main themes was to be around children. Examples of fields you can choose are teaching, medicine, day care, or camp counselor. You want to show humor, love, and happiness to children, particularly those children who are having trouble at home or not having a full family. You want to be with children and give them a sense of safety.

Your desire to work with children comes from a previous lifetime where you didn’t experience a family and there was a lot of hardship. You lived with other people in your family, but you didn’t have any parents. It was difficult for you and it wasn’t a happy life.

In your current lifetime you didn’t want to help just one or two children, but many children. Even if you help children as a hobby, this is the most important thing for you in this lifetime. This will help you heal the hurt from your past life.

Overcoming Anxiety to Find My Life Purpose

This post is inspired by a reader named Jim, who says he’s struggled with obsessive-compulsive disorder most of his life and asks The Council how he can have less worry and anxiety in his life.

The Council explains that when you know who you truly are, there is nothing to worry about. They ask if Jim understands he is a spiritual being in a human body, and they explain that when he takes his mind away from worry and anxiety and changes the focus of his thoughts to better feeling ones, his life will begin to change for the better. What Jim chooses to focus on will bring him peace of mind.

The Council encourages Jim to have more hope, focus on peacefulness, love, gratitude, the positive aspects of what’s going on, and looking for miracles happening in his life. Concentrate on the support he would get from spirits in human form and in the spiritual world. When Jim can begin thinking about these things his life will improve.

Jim also says he’s struggled with finding his true purpose in this lifetime. The Council says one of the purposes he wants to experience is joy and to have child-like experiences throughout his lifetime, even as an adult. They suggest Jim have a career around children to hear their laughter and join in with them. That is what he wanted to experience.

The Council’s parting advice to Jim is to do the work and he will succeed. Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Jim and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Follow-up Questions on Leaving an Abusive Relationship

Recently we published a post titled, Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship, answering Jolanda’s questions about her relationship with her husband. After reading that post Jolanda had some follow-up questions and the current post answers those questions.

Jolanda begins by saying she was inspired to ask her questions by listening to the teachings of Abraham and that prior to hearing these teachings she felt leaving her husband was her only option. But she’s heard Abraham repeatedly say something like the following:

“Don’t get out of a relationship until you can be strong and happy within yourself, no matter what is going on around you. If someone makes you go out of the Vortex, just get back in. Don’t let someone upset your ability to be happy and be in the Vortex.”

Jolanda says she resonates to this and realized her problem was really her difficulty being happy when her husband was unhappy. She adds:

“Abraham cautions that if we don’t get ourselves right before leaving a relationship, we’ll just get into the same type of relationship again and again, until we learn our lesson.”

Jolanda asks The Council’s opinion on this, considering their answers in the earlier post seemed to suggest it was her intention she find the strength to protect herself and her children by leaving her husband. She says:

“I know I haven’t learned how to be happy while others are unhappy, which is why I feel that my husband is the absolute best partner I could possibly have at this time, because he’s in my face every day, being unhappy with me, and pushing my buttons. What better way to learn to get happy no matter what is going on around me?”

The Council has a lot to say to Jolanda about her situation, but it boils down to the following quote:

“When you realize something is not bringing you joy (because that is what you are wishing to experience) then you have the ability to start making another choice, to start making a plan on how you would do this if you’re not ready to do this right now. But there is nowhere/anywhere where Abraham or any other spirit would say stay there if you are miserable. It’s like, stay there if you have to till you get the strength to make another choice.”

When the session was finished we did a Google search on “Abraham Hicks abusive relationship” to get Abraham’s views on this subject instead of Jolanda’s view of what Abraham was saying. What we came up with was a 7-minute YouTube video titled, “Is it time to leave?”, which we reproduce below. The woman speaking with Abraham is in a situation similar to Jolanda.

And while Abraham does emphasize the importance of working on yourself to improve your vibration before leaving a relationship so you don’t attract a similar relationship into your life, they add that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to take action. They say:

“The story we like best is: You’re sitting on a park bench and you’re feeling fear, and you don’t really know if there’s a monster in the bushes or if you just think there’s a monster in the bushes. And we say, in any event, move away from the monster.”

The Council appears to understand that Jolanda chose to be in this abusive relationship with her husband for the specific purpose of developing the strength in this lifetime to leave him and protect herself and her children. The Council adds more than once it’s Jolanda’s choice whether she actually leaves her husband on not, and they are merely reminding her of her pre-birth intention.

Listen to our entire 22-minute session with The Council (below) to hear Jolanda’s follow-up questions and The Council’s answers for her and anyone in a similar situation.

Is the Soul of My Aborted Brother One of My Children?

This post is inspired by a question from Laurel, who wants to know if the soul of a child her mother aborted has come to her as one of her children. She says she still thinks about this abortion 30 years later.

The Council says the soul of Laurel’s aborted half-brother is not the same soul as one of her four children in this lifetime. What The Council does see is a lifetime in ancient Egypt where Laurel raised and taught many of Pharaoh’s children. And each time a child died or was aborted there was a hurt she is trying to heal in her current lifetime. Her children in the current life made an agreement with her to come in and help her experience the joy of having them around.

The mother’s abortion brought up Laurel’s disappointment so it would, as she says, “haunt” her.” But her children in the current lifetime are there to stir Laurel’s memories of past lives and to help heal that hurt. She is at the point where she’s ready to explore this and slowly share it with her children so their minds and belief systems can open and they can become aware of other realities.

The Council realizes Laurel is bothered by her mother’s abortion, but they advise appreciating the children in her life right now, how they’ve helped her get to this point, and how they encourage her to heal this disappointment.

In the same way she was unable to prevent the Pharaoh’s wives from aborting their children, she was unable to stop her mother from aborting her brother. The Council points out Laurel’s disappointment with her mother for this, but says it is so she can heal it now and get to the point, with love, where she can understand what happened. She can allow her mother to be who she is. This is the law of allowing.

The Council advises Laurel to meditate on these things and begin to look at them differently. She hasn’t lost her aborted brother or Pharaoh’s aborted children because we are all connected in spirit. When Laurel understands The Council’s teaching that she is spirit in a physical body, she’ll experience many healings from her lifetime in Egypt, and The Council will be with her as she goes through this.

Listen to the entire 16-minute session below to hear all The Council’s guidance during this session and let us know what you think.

Should I Get Pregnant After My Abortion?

This post is inspired by questions from L who asks if she should get pregnant again after having an abortion. It was a difficult decision because her partner was clear he didn’t want to become a father and she was too afraid to become a single Mom. During and right after the abortion L was surprised by the love she was surrounded by and not feeling guilty towards this unborn soul.

The Council says L is one of the few people who actually feel love from the aborted soul and her spirit guides during an abortion, and they say this is exactly what everyone going through this should feel. There is no reason to feel guilty and no reason to punish yourself because you think you have done something wrong.

But now it’s a few months later and she’s experiencing a lot of sadness and regret. She suspects the abortion was to open her maternal instinct, which she thinks would have remained closed otherwise, and now she’s thinking about becoming pregnant again. The Council advises her to try and remember, even if it’s just for a short time, the feeling of love she experienced during the pregnancy and abortion, and that would help her with any decisions she needs to make.

But her partner is still afraid of becoming a father and she doesn’t know whether to give it more time or to end the relationship because she’s already 35 years old. The Council says he might be a great Dad if that’s his choice, but they remind L it’s not her place to make the choice for him.

L asks why this happened to her, how to deal with it, and if there will be another chance for children with this partner or another partner. She thinks maybe her desire for children now is her way of coping with the abortion, but The Council says being a mother is something she wants to experience. It’s up to her whether she persuades her current partner, finds a new partner, or changes her mind about getting pregnant again.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session to gain the full benefit from The Council’s guidance.

Will the Soul be the Same in a Future Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by a question from an anonymous reader who had to terminate a pregnancy for medical reasons. She felt a special connection with the soul who was her baby and asks The Council if it will return in a future pregnancy.

The Council is happy she doesn’t feel bad about terminating this pregnancy and says that half her lesson was learned when she let the child go and was okay with it. They ask her to reflect on this and see what feelings come up for her.

They say it’s always possible for the soul to return if an agreement was made that way, but ask if that’s so important, and if another soul was to come to her would it be a disappointment. The Council says they see this soul returning to A., but what if there were others after that? Would it be loved any less?

Listen to the full 5-minute recording of this session to get the whole story.
