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.
Recently we published a post titled, Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship, answering Jolanda’s questions about her relationship with her husband. After reading that post Jolanda had some follow-up questions and the current post answers those questions.
Jolanda begins by saying she was inspired to ask her questions by listening to the teachings of Abraham and that prior to hearing these teachings she felt leaving her husband was her only option. But she’s heard Abraham repeatedly say something like the following:
“Don’t get out of a relationship until you can be strong and happy within yourself, no matter what is going on around you. If someone makes you go out of the Vortex, just get back in. Don’t let someone upset your ability to be happy and be in the Vortex.”
Jolanda says she resonates to this and realized her problem was really her difficulty being happy when her husband was unhappy. She adds:
“Abraham cautions that if we don’t get ourselves right before leaving a relationship, we’ll just get into the same type of relationship again and again, until we learn our lesson.”
Jolanda asks The Council’s opinion on this, considering their answers in the earlier post seemed to suggest it was her intention she find the strength to protect herself and her children by leaving her husband. She says:
“I know I haven’t learned how to be happy while others are unhappy, which is why I feel that my husband is the absolute best partner I could possibly have at this time, because he’s in my face every day, being unhappy with me, and pushing my buttons. What better way to learn to get happy no matter what is going on around me?”
The Council has a lot to say to Jolanda about her situation, but it boils down to the following quote:
“When you realize something is not bringing you joy (because that is what you are wishing to experience) then you have the ability to start making another choice, to start making a plan on how you would do this if you’re not ready to do this right now. But there is nowhere/anywhere where Abraham or any other spirit would say stay there if you are miserable. It’s like, stay there if you have to till you get the strength to make another choice.”
When the session was finished we did a Google search on “Abraham Hicks abusive relationship” to get Abraham’s views on this subject instead of Jolanda’s view of what Abraham was saying. What we came up with was a 7-minute YouTube video titled, “Is it time to leave?”, which we reproduce below. The woman speaking with Abraham is in a situation similar to Jolanda.
And while Abraham does emphasize the importance of working on yourself to improve your vibration before leaving a relationship so you don’t attract a similar relationship into your life, they add that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to take action. They say:
“The story we like best is: You’re sitting on a park bench and you’re feeling fear, and you don’t really know if there’s a monster in the bushes or if you just think there’s a monster in the bushes. And we say, in any event, move away from the monster.”
The Council appears to understand that Jolanda chose to be in this abusive relationship with her husband for the specific purpose of developing the strength in this lifetime to leave him and protect herself and her children. The Council adds more than once it’s Jolanda’s choice whether she actually leaves her husband on not, and they are merely reminding her of her pre-birth intention.
Listen to our entire 22-minute session with The Council (below) to hear Jolanda’s follow-up questions and The Council’s answers for her and anyone in a similar situation.
This post is inspired by 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.
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.
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?
