Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

What’s Interfering with the Forward Movement in My Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Fuschia, who says she’s been unable to succeed in most areas of her life for the last six years or more. She’s lost relationships, financial security, jobs, excitement for life, and her health has become affected lately. This inability to manifest what she desires has resulted in depression and confusion about her life.

The Council says all the things Fuschia feels she’s lost are a continuation from lessons in other lifetimes. Her soul purpose in this lifetime, and it’s a brave one, is to work on the issue of hopelessness.

In other lifetimes you were in service to a Japanese family, a slave in Egypt in one life and a taskmaster in another, you were in hiding during the French Revolution, and again a slave in the early 1900’s. In these lifetimes you experienced the people around you losing themselves in depression, giving up, and dying. At first you didn’t understand what caused these people to give up. In many of these other lives you had no choice what you could do because you were a slave or like a slave and in these roles you also began to lose hope. You also experienced sickness and depression because you couldn’t see a way to get better.

In your current lifetime you wanted to work on everything that made you feel hopeless in your other lifetimes. Consequently you planned to experience some of this hopelessness so you could find a way to let go of it and find your way to live a life of hope. What’s needed now is to be in your present and work on your thoughts. This will change what you see and feel, and it will change what you create in your life.

When an idea comes to you about trying a different doctor, or trying a different job that maybe you don’t feel qualified for, or if someone helps you with an existing or new relationship, you need to have hope these situations will change. See your situation differently. Your plan was to work on hopelessness, to feel it, and then to change it to something better feeling. Plan the action you’d take to make these changes happen.

The inner work is important, but you must take this further because in your other lifetimes you weren’t in situations where you were able to take actions. As a slave working on the pyramids you couldn’t decide you didn’t want to do this work and get another job, but you can in your current lifetime. In your current lifetime it’s important to take action.

You didn’t have the freedom in your other lifetimes to change your actions and make your life better. It was an experience of hopelessness. And now you’ve chosen to bring several of these lifetimes in to experience the hopelessness and then think about how you can change these situations to make them better. But before you can change these situations it’s important to realize you’re a spirit that goes from lifetime to lifetime and you’re on this path in order to grow and heal. Your#1 lesson is to imagine what it’s like to be a powerful spirit that has the choice of how you’ll live in this life. That is your lesson for this lifetime.

Fuschia asks The Council if there are past life issues that are interfering with her forward movement? And The Council replies that these issues aren’t interfering. They are what she’s chosen to bring in and work on in this particular lifetime. It is to heal and become whole in your thoughts and feelings, and find a way to become, in your physical body, the spirit you truly are.

The Council asks Fuschia to remember that the issues she’s currently experiencing are coming from past lives and she’s chosen to bring these issues forward. And there was the knowing, in spirit, that these issues can be changed for the better. When you feel like there’s no answer and hopeless, remember you’re spirit and this was your choice to grow and heal all of this so you don’t have to experience it again. Find the hope, and then take the action and improve this lifetime.

Listen to the entire 11-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Fuschia and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Jolanda who says it’s taken her a long time to realize her husband (who is the father and step-father of their children) is verbally and emotionally abusive to her and their stepchildren.

Jolanda asks if she’s right to stay with her husband and The Council says there was a pre-birth agreement they would come together in this lifetime. They see previous lifetimes where Jolanda had experienced a lack of courage and in this lifetime she desires to learn to be a protector of herself and her children. The Council adds that her children are part of this agreement and it’s their purpose to push Jolanda to become the protector she wants to be.

The Council asks if Jolanda feels it’s safe for her children to be around her husband, or is it time to move on to protect them. The Council says these questions are there to push her in the direction she wants to go. And they add Jolanda doesn’t need to grow any more to realize the relationship with her husband is an abusive one.

The Council says Jolanda’s spirit wants to experience the other side of the coin – the kind of partner she’d feel unconditional love with and feel her children are safe, growing, and happy. They say it’s her choice and the lesson to protect herself and her children is right in front of her.

Jolanda says it’s difficult to be yelled at, blamed, ignored, and devalued by someone who means the world to her. And The Council asks if she believes by staying in this relationship she’ll acquire the strength she needs and the love she wants.

The Council advises Jolanda to love herself and her children and put herself on a path where she experiences this, and to picture herself as strong and happy, having a loving partner and happy children.

The Council says if Jolanda stays in this relationship it will stay the way it is. This is the way she created this relationship – to stay this way until she finds the strength to change it.

Listen to the entire 11-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jolanda.

Loving Feelings with a Married Co-worker

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named T. who asks The Council the purpose of a beautiful soul in her life who happens to be a co-worker and married to another woman.

T. says she’s never felt so free and content just knowing he exists and feels unconditional love for him. She’s unable to see any unhappiness in his marriage, and while she knows he feels something for her, T. has no idea what this is. She asks for signs of his feelings, but finds them confusing.

T. wonders if she shouldn’t give energy to the idea of being with him one day, or sit back and wait for the right time to be with him. She asks The Council why they have come together, if they’ve lived past lives together, and what is his purpose in her life?

The Council asks T. why she would want to give up this unconditionally loving relationship and they add this is the reason we have come to this physical reality. She has created this relationship in her life and she needs it.

The Council asks if T. must have more, or if she’s able to appreciate the relationship she’s having right now? Does she want to come between this man and his wife?

The Council feels confident T. will create whatever she wants. Perhaps she’ll create an affair with this man – whether it ends well or not will depend on how she creates it.

The Council says T. is able to create a situation where this man leaves his wife. Or is T. able to enjoy this relationship, taking what she finds there, and create her very own partner without separating this married couple? The Council says there isn’t any judgement of her whichever she chooses. What feels better to her?

The Council says T. and the co-worker have lived past lives together and he’s in her life now to help her get in touch with loving feelings that will help her create what she desires. Will T. take the love she’s created in this relationship and create a new relationship where she’s able to share these feelings with someone else, and still remain friends with this co-worker? Or does T. want to create what she desires with this man she works with?

The Council says it’s very important for T. to focus on the feelings and emotions that are uplifting for her and then choose whether she’d like to share this love with her co-worker, or create someone new in her life to share this love with.

This is a choice The Council says wants to be made (presumably in spirit). As they see it, this choice was discussed before coming into this physical reality when T. was in spirit, and it was her wish to see how she could create loving feelings wherever she goes, whether it be in an intimate relationship or with family, friends, co-workers, etc.

The Council says this situation is not about creating the right partner for T. It’s about creating loving feelings in all her relationships.

Listen to the entire 13-minute session with The Council to get the benefit of all their guidance for T.

Ask a Question and Spirit Immediately Answers

This session is inspired by a reader named Sam and her questions about a relatively recent pregnancy she terminated. She says there are a lot of loose ends around the termination, and The Council begins by saying these loose ends Sam is talking about are all part of the learning and moving forward.

Sam says ever since she  learned she was pregnant she’s been feeling a sense of wholeness and love for herself and she asks if this love is coming from the soul of her child. The Council says while the child’s soul is constantly sending her love, the love Sam is talking about is Sam loving herself because she has followed her pre-birth spiritual plan exactly the way she intended.This love is part of who Sam truly is as a spiritual being. The Council says Sam stepped forward to help this soul, who desired to briefly experience what it was like to be in a human body, and then leave Sam’s body quickly.

Sam says the father of this child wasn’t really there during this pregnancy and isn’t currently in her life. She asks if there’s any meaning to why he was never part of the pregnancy and termination. The Council says the father also agreed in spirit to help this soul experience a brief physical life, but it was never agreed he would stay with her and be a family. Sam says sometimes she thinks about the father and wishes she could tell him all she’s learned from terminating this pregnancy. She says part of her doesn’t think he deserves to know and part of her thinks she should tell him, and Sam asks The Council what she should do.

The Council says in Sam’s spiritual pre-plan, this soul would play the part of the child’s father and then leave Sam’s life. If she chooses to involve him at this point, they say she’d be drifting from what she originally pre-planned, but they add this is okay. This is part of the choice she has in her current lifetime and they advise Sam to think about this choice. She is able to communicate with the father non-verbally and she should know on some level this communication is received. When this information is needed by him, he will have the benefit of whatever she has spoken to him about.

Sam says she’s learned not to look at this experience as a mistake, but part of her feels sad and she wonders if this is from loosing the child or from what she describes as poor decisions she’s made in her life. The Council says if Sam feels she’s made poor decisions, has she learned from them. If she had the opportunity to make these decisions again, would she decide differently based on what she now knows. And they add that this is what life is about – learning and moving on. They also tell Sam it’s important to look at the choices she’s made that have worked out for her and that she feels good about.

When Sam says she feels like she’s running away from her true self, The Council replies there’s nothing wrong with the way she’s handling her situation and they advise her to be open, accepting, and move forward. She will learn from this experience. They advise Sam to feel good about herself, look forward to having more understanding, and feel that it’s safe to let her energy expand rather than holding it close to her physical body.

Sam asks if she shouldn’t feel ashamed for hiding this pregnancy from her parents, and The Council says she is here to experience the love of spirit and there is no purpose to feeling ashamed. There is nothing wrong with the choice she made to terminate this pregnancy.

At the end of this session The Council makes the point that they answered Sam’s questions long before she wrote them on our blog. But was she able to let the answers in? Was she able to sit quietly and understand that her thoughts and feelings or the things she suddenly understood, is spirit reaching out to her with the answers to her questions?

The Council points out that when you have a question, spirit provides you with answers instantaneously, but are you receptive to them? In Sam’s case she had these answers, but she needed them to come in a different way. So she created the answers through this blog. The Council explains we have yet to fully develop to the point where we trust our intuition, and our thoughts, and our feelings. And they add that this is why we are here in this physical reality.

The Council asks Sam to let go of any shame, any regret, or any thinking of wrong doing on this situation she is coming through. It was pre-planned by her in spirit and she executed it beautifully in her physical reality. And they remind Sam to hold on to the feeling of self love.

This session offers much guidance on many aspects of terminating a pregnancy. Listen to the entire 16-minute recording below to hear all of The Council’s advice for Sam and anyone interested in this subject.

Searching for Better Feeling Answers

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Tracy who asks, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” and “What if we are sad, selfish spirit, and hurting so bad?”

The Council says they have never seen anyone not succeed on any level. They say succeeding is the process of feeling good, and there is always something in your life to feel good about. But perhaps Tracy can’t remember those times right now. Review your life, going back as early as you can, and The Council is sure you will find times where you succeeded. There is always some success in your life. When you look for those times you will find them.

The Council understands how Tracy can feel sad and hurt, but that’s because of what she believes and has planned to experience in this lifetime. But opportunities will continually present themselves and she has the power to change. Her greatest tool in this lifetime is choice, and she can always choose to look for something good. Or she can do something good for someone else. When you do something for another person you will automatically start to feel better.

The Council says some people chose to experience hardships their entire life because they are learning from it and want to experience it to the fullest extent. And you don’t know what the soul is trying to accomplish through this. But when you return to spirit everything is okay and you have the opportunity to decide what you want to do with this experience.

The Council says if Tracy has seen love but not taken advantage of it, she needs to look at why this is the case. This will involve deep soul searching. Because she’s asking these questions now, she can take this opportunity to look at her life differently. As long as she is alive, Tracy has the power to sort this out.

As  everyone in spirit sees it, Tracy has a successful life. There is no failure in spirit. There are just experiences, and what you decide to do with them.

The Council says in the beginning of Tracy’s lifetime she had the idea she wasn’t enough as a person. They add Tracy was lonely and around people who weren’t able to live a normal experience. This loneliness begins to shut down Tracy’s belief in what she deserves. And when she believes this, she will create situations that will prove that belief is true, until she begins to question and know she is so much more than a physical person, and that she has the power to change her life. These questions are coming forward precisely so Tracy’s life can change, and The Council sees this as great growth and a wonderful crossroads.

The Council says Tracy has time to make choices that will change her experience, regardless of what she experienced when she was younger. As long as you are in a physical body you have the ability to see things differently. If you can send love to the people in your life that you feel were not good to you, or to any situation that wasn’t right, there is growth and there is change.

Before you come into this lifetime and when you come back to spirit, you know that no matter how hard it’s been, you are not stuck in your physical reality. You are coming home.

There’s a lot of information in the recording (below) that’s difficult to include in this session overview . Listen to the entire 19-minute session to appreciate all The Council’s guidance for Tracy and anyone who is having difficulty in this lifetime.

Remembering You Are Spirit – Free Will – Other Lifetimes – Reason for Poverty

This post is inspired by a comment from Tracy on a post we published in April 2013, which was before we made recordings of sessions with The Council available. That post answered one of four interesting questions from a reader named Jose about why we fail to remember who we are as spiritual beings in our physical life.

Tracy asks a few questions beginning with, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” And ending with a comment about seeing the mistakes we’ve made, “but have no power left to sort it out, and already feel dead.”

As we re-read the post Tracy commented on, we decided to make a recording of it available in this post in the hope it might be helpful to Tracy and other readers, at least until we can publish a post to answer Tracy’s questions. While the earlier post answers only one of Jose’s questions, the following recording has The Council’s answers to all four of Jose’s questions. In case you’re interested, here are the five posts we published back in 2013 to answer these questions.

  1. Every Question Is Important
  2. Why Do People Appear Unable to Fulfill a Spiritual Intention to Have Fun and Remember Who We Are?
  3. Does Spirit’s Pre-Birth Planning Negate Human Free Will?
  4. Future Lives, Connecting with Famous ‘Dead’ People, & the Importance of the Present
  5. What Is Spirit Up To?

Thank you for your questions and comments, Tracy. We’ll do our best to get The Council’s answers and publish a recording of the session in the near future. In the meantime we hope our readers will listen to the following recording of our session which prompted those questions and let us know what you think.

Why Must I Go Through Hardships for My Soul to Grow?

This post is about a question from Asher who asks why it’s necessary to go through hardships, troubles, accidents, pain, loss, and more in order for his soul to grow? Asher wishes he could enroll in a cosmic school where spiritual growth is achieved through positive experience.

The Council says it isn’t necessary to go through hardships. They say they’re a choice. They ask Asher if he knows it wasn’t his intention to create a life he finds difficult. His intention was to create interesting experiences, and then by remembering who he is as a spiritual being and looking at these experiences in a more loving way, they become more loving and much easier to experience.

When Bob asks why Asher doesn’t seem to feel this love, The Council says it’s because he doesn’t understand his purpose for experiencing these challenges and who he is as a spiritual being. He doesn’t remember he created these experiences so he could have the fun of learning to change them into more loving experiences.

The Council says when we remind ourselves we are spirit in a physical body, we automatically begin to look at our experiences more lovingly, even if it’s difficult in the moment. And they promise as you meet each challenge and bring in the vibration of love, this vibration makes it easier for others to have a similar experience.

Asher says he feels sad that only the soul benefits from these spiritual lessons and not the human. The Council asks Asher if he realizes the spirit, soul, and human are one, and spirit will not grow unless its human part goes through these challenging situations. They say when the spirit grows it’s because our human part has gone though an experience, changed the way we think about it, and learned from this experience.

The Council reminds us there are many good things we’ve chosen to experience and to be grateful, and this will help change your vibration for the better.

The Council says Asher has created these hardships so he can learn how to go through them, experience them, and change them into more loving experiences by thinking better feeling thoughts.

For those of us who have a difficult time believing we are spirit in our physical bodies The Council says this is the #1 reason many spirits have come at this time to make connections and get the message out to remember who you are as spirit. They say even if we just pretend we are spirit, eventually we wonder what this means and understanding gradually becomes possible.

Stillborn Birth Revisited

This post in inspired by questions and comments from Janette, who asked about her daughter’s stillborn birth in a previous question and follows up with additional questions now.

After having a Cesarean section for the recent birth of her son, the doctor informed Janette that her uterus was only half formed, and this condition is responsible for stillborn births and several other problems. Having learned this she feels it’s a miracle her second child was born okay after her daughter was stillborn. But now she’s confused about whether there’s a spiritual reason for her daughter’s stillbirth, or whether it was just the physical issues with her uterus.

The Council replies that when she created these challenges in her life, does she understand it’s never something that just happens because her uterus is partially formed? It’s all been planned by her spiritual self for what she wants to learn, who she wants to help.

When Janette asks if her soul planned to be born with a partially formed uterus so she would experience her daughter’s stillbirth, The Council says definitely, and now she’s ready to let this situation go.

Janette asks if her daughter’s soul knew she wouldn’t make it through the pregnancy, and again The Council says, definitely. When she asks if her daughter’s soul planned from the beginning to be stillborn or if she decided when she was 33 weeks pregnant,  as The Council sees her situation it was pre-planned so she and her daughter could have the stillbirth experience.

When Janette asks if she knows on some higher level what the answers to her questions are, The Council says of course you do. They say on your higher level you have all the answers, and she knew she would experience a stillbirth.

Janette asks if she and her daughter didn’t agree to the stillbirth, could it have happened anyway because they had no choice and it was just something medical that happened. The Council is clear that we always have a choice. And they say if there’s a medical problem, it’s because her higher self desired this problem to help her experience this stillbirth. The Council says nothing happens by accident. It is pre-planned and everyone agreed to it. And they see that the stillbirth went according to her plans.

Janette says she thinks it’s the role of our guardian angels to ensure we don’t cross over before our time. She asks if her daughter’s guardian angel was with her during the 33 week pregnancy, and did it allow the stillbirth to happen?

The Council says guardian angels will never step in and change what you have planned in spirit. They’re job is to sort of hang around and make sure things go in the direction you wanted.

When Janette asked why her daughter’s guardian angel didn’t protect her and keep her safe inside her, The Council says she was safe in her. She was so safe that the stillbirth went exactly the way she planed for it to go in spirit.

The Council asks that Janette focus her attention now on the new soul that was just born into your life, to show it love at all times, and to teach it to be a loving person. As this child grows it will be very focused on what it wants to do in this lifetime and knowledge is what will keep him on the right track. The Council advises Janette to be part of the education that he needs. He’s here to acquire knowledge, to bring answers into his life, and be part of the souls that blaze a new trail into the spiritual world.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session with The Council (below).

What Do My Soul, Heart, and Ego Need?

This post is inspired by a brief, but powerful question from Margaret, who asks: What do my soul, heart, and ego need? It’s a short question, but The Council’s answer is full of insight that applies to many, if not all of us.

The first thing The Council reminds us is that it’s good to realize we are spirit in a physical body, and that we are here to bring love into all situations we experience. This was our main purpose for coming here and they go on to say there isn’t anyone here who doesn’t have a spirit with them to guide them.

The Council says we’ve chosen our challenging situations because we want the experience of turning them around by looking at them with the love we are, and experiencing them differently.

They remind us our most powerful tool is choice. Every day in every situation you have the choice how you’ll handle these circumstances, and how you’ll move through every experience.

When I (Bob) point out their guidance for Margaret seems a little general, The Council says their guidance is what Margaret needs to know at this particular time, and it’s specific to her needs.

They suggest she read many of the spiritual books available and they mention by name those written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel. They close by reminding Margaret she is loved, and she has The Council’s support and blessing.

Listen to the entire 4-minute session to receive it’s full meaning and let us know what you think.

You’re Here to Experience Everything With Love

This post is inspired by a question from Ali who asks if you have a natural talent for something are you obliged to use this talent.

The Council says there’s no obligation. You come with gifts and you chose whether to use them or not. There is no should. You have a talent you brought forth in this lifetime if it brings you pleasure to use it. They ask what is the purpose of practicing art, even if you are talented, if it doesn’t bring you joy. You are suppose to enjoy what you do; find fun in it; love it. These are the things you want to do in this lifetime.

The Council says they are here to hopefully give people clarity and help them feel better. They remind us we are here to bring love into every situation and know you have the choice of what you want to experience and how you want to experience it. And they remind us it’s our purpose to bring love from our spiritual reality into our human reality.

Look at every part of your life and ask if you are bringing love into it. Can you make your life more fun? Find a better way to experience your life. There’s no need for guilt or fear. When you experience these emotion it’s because you’ve forgotten you are pure love and light. That’s the true you.

You’re so much more than your body and the person you are in this reality. You’ve had many other lifetimes and many talents. Great beauty and great love is within you. You’re here with many spirits to experience anything you want to experience, and your intention is to experience everything with love.

The Council’s closing thoughts go beyond Ali’s questions to answer larger questions you may have about your life. Listen to the entire 6-minute recording to benefit from what The Council is saying.

Abortion Insights

Ali’s questions

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.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session with The Council to hear all of their guidance.

Why Go Through Pain to Have Your Soul Grow?

This post is inspired by a question from Asher who asks The Council why it’s necessary to go through pain and hardship in order for our soul to grow? He feels sad human beings aren’t capable of anything else and he wishes to enroll in a cosmic school where spiritual growth is a positive experience.

The Counsel says Asher is already in that school and it’s not necessary to create situations where growth only takes place through suffering and struggle. He has the choice to change his life through his beliefs.

If Asher feels the only way his soul can grow is through suffering, that is what he’ll create. But The Council says we come to this world to grow in love, not through suffering. And as we stay in the vibration of love, less struggle will occur.

The Council advises Asher to take his greatest power, which is choice, and change the way he sees this. In response to his comment that humans aren’t capable of anything else The Council replies that humans are also spirit. They are one and whatever you go through, you learn from it together.

This session is only about 5-minutes long, but there’s lots of valuable information in it. Listen to what The Council has to say for the full story.

New Challenges and Will I Be Bi-polar Again

This post is inspired by questions from Ana who asks The Counsel about new challenges she faces in her life, to which The Counsel replies these challenges are her own creation. Ana goes on to ask if fighting makes sense in order to maintain her situation. And she asks if she’ll become bi-polar again.

The Counsel reminds Ana we come to this reality to create love, not suffer and go through hard times. But because of what we believe and how we think, we find these situations coming up in our lives.

The Counsel says when she feels it’s a fight to save a relationship or a reality she’s created, Ana’s not seeing through the eyes of who she truly is. They ask her to look at what brought her to this relationship in the first place and they remind her she has a choice whether to leave or stay.

And there’s the question of whether she becomes bi-polar again and The Counsel says this was also her choice. They ask what she’s learned from being this and they encourage her to look at it differently. They say if Ana can change the belief she needs this then she can create something else.

Lastly The Counsel reminds Ana she’s spirit in a physical body and to bring love into every situation.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session to hear all the details.

Choosing Love vs. Battle

Gail’s question

In this post Gail talks about identifying with the spiritual warrior and asks The Council what this means to them. The Council responds by saying they don’t see Gail as a warrior. They ask her to look at her life and see that what she wants is a change in the way she’s manifesting. The warrior is one way to give Gail the strength she needs to make these changes, but The Council adds there are other ways.

Peaceful warrior

The Council adds that Gail can go in the vibration of the peaceful warrior, in the vibration of joy. And yet if she feels things are difficult and she needs to fight her way through to change what is not wanted, then the spiritual warrior is available to her. Both ways will take her to her goal.

As The Council has said many times, the bottom line is what she believes. If modeling herself after a warrior gives Gail comfort and that is her belief, then use this. But if if she can become the peaceful warrior, going within and finding the joy she truly is, there is nothing she cannot accomplish.

The choice is Gail’s, but The Council asks why go into battle when when she can go into love.

This post is part of a series of 4 questions that were answered by The Council on January 4, 2015. Stay tuned for posts on the other 3 questions, which are all on the subject of abortion. Copyright ℗ 2014 Bob & Cynthia Dukes

Understanding Your Spiritual Intentions for Your Human Experiences

This post is inspired by a question from Susan, who wants to know why some people (particularly a man she knows) experience childhood abuse or other types of trauma and end up with addictions, unemployed, and homeless; and other people (particularly Susan) move past their childhood trauma and take advantage of opportunities to improve their life.

What humans and spirit consider improvement can be very different

“But what you do not understand here is that your idea of what he needs to improve his life, and what his spirit needs to improve his life, is totally different. Is that understood?”

–The Council
(Text formatted like above throughout the post represents quotations from the session)

This was intriguing and we spent most of the session getting a better understanding of what The Council meant by this. The result was some impressive insights into the relationship between who you are a human being and who you are as a spiritual being. As an added bonus The Council offered some fascinating insights into the subject of multiple realities.


Audio recording

You have no idea what spirit wishes

The Council continued from their previous comment above:

“So if you [Susan] feel that he has had several opportunities to change his life or perhaps somehow deal differently with his abuse, yes that would make sense to many. But you have no idea what his spirit wishes.

“And what we see here is that it is his wish to be in this lifetime and to experience this addiction, to experience the abuse from what you would consider an unhealthy attitude toward what he has come through.

“What you do not know is that he has experienced this before (or as we would say, now [but] in another reality) and he has experienced it where he is dealing differently with his abuse and (perhaps) handling it in (what you would consider) a much better way [in his current reality]. Is that understood?”

Choose Better-Feeling Thoughts for a Better-Feeling Life

Anne’s question

This post is inspired by the following question for The Council from Anne.

“Do you see me in a loving relationship with a man coming into my life? I have created the space and I am open to be with an amazing man.”

Audio recording

The black bar below plays a 2½ minute recording of the segment of a session with The Council to answer Anne’s question.

Play: Click triangle (►). Pause: Click icon (||) that that replaces the triangle while the recording plays. Fast Forward/Rewind: Click to the right/left of the play bar during play. Mute on/off: Click speaker icon. Volume: Click bar to the right of the speaker icon.

Keep Focused on What You Desire

The Council’s answer to Anne’s question emphasizes the importance of your focus of attention and how this relates to getting what you want in your life. The following Council quotes are session highlights to help you decide if you want to use the audio player above to listen to these comments in the context of the session. The first comment below was their response being read the first sentence of Anne’s question: “Do you see me in a loving relationship with a man coming into my life?”

“No, no, no, no, no [quickly 9-10 times]. Does she see herself in a relationship with a wonderful man coming into her life? Do you see where we’re going [with this]?”

“Talk about it… feel it… imagine it… draw pictures of it… watch romantic movies. Whatever it is that keeps your focus [on] the relationship that you want, right down to every detail that you would like, is a wonderful exercise.

“And so do we see it? Yes, we do see this. It is there in what she would consider her future.

“It is also there [in Anne’s future] that she does not meet this particular man that she would have a wonderful life with.

“It is her focus [that determines] what will be brought into her life. But if she, [as] she says, clears the space [and] focuses on this [relationship], yes we do see this for her.”

How is your attention focused?

If Anne consistently focuses her attention on the relationship and the man she desires in her life, The Council says they see this happening for her. They also mention the possibility of a future for Anne where this doesn’t happen, and The Council emphasizes Anne’s focus of attention on her desire will determine the future she experiences. The question is: what kind of focus of attention will allow Anne to experience her desired outcome?

The Human-Spirit Relationship and Free Will

Overview

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Jose, who has read in some of our blog posts (links at the end of this post) that humans are spiritual beings in a physical body, and that spirit sometimes chooses to have human experiences that we (as humans) find undesirable. Jose wants to know how it’s possible for humans to have free will to choose our human desires, if who we are as spirit is choosing human experiences that feel unwanted from our human point of view.

Lots of people have become interested in the spiritual teaching that you are the creator of what you experience, which has been around a while and has become more popular through the teachings of Abraham and other spiritual teachers. Jose’s question suggests he’s aware of lots of things in his human experience he doesn’t want, and after reading in our posts that who you are as spirit sometimes creates human experiences that feel unwanted from your human point of view, he came to the troubling conclusion that spirit is preventing him from having more of the human experiences he desires.

Topics Covered in this Post

Even if you don’t believe spirit is keeping you from manifesting more of what you desire in your life, and you’re not particularly interested in the subject of free will, if you’re interested in ideas to help you feel an increased level of well-being in your human experience, we’re finding the information and guidance from The Council in response to Jose’s question has been a big step for us in that direction. Topics covered in our sessions on Jose’s question and in this post include:

  1. The relationship between who you are as a spiritual being and who you are as a human being.
  2. Why the spiritual part of you might desire to have human experiences in a physical reality.
  3. Why the spiritual part of you might desire to have human experiences that feel undesirable to you as a human being.
  4. The validity of your human free will to choose your human desires, even if who you are as spirit is choosing to have different human experiences.
  5. Why you may be having difficulty manifesting your human desires in your physical experience.

Nothing Going On That Spirit Hasn’t Planned For

The Council began our first session on Jose’s questions by emphasizing there isn’t any separation between spirit and human.

“The spirit works through the body it [spirit] has created.

“So there is nothing that is going on that the body wants, that the spirit hasn’t planned for.

“Is that understood? It is all one – the mind, the body, and the spirit – it is all one.”

–The Council

Does Spirit’s Pre-Birth Planning Negate Human Free Will?

This post is third in a series describing a session with The Council on Saturday, March 30, 2013 to answer questions from Jose, Michelle, and D. This post focuses on the first of Jose’s four questions and it’s about guidance from The Council in a recent post and the issue of free will:

“In the case of what was shared in Maria’s Plan for a Spiritual Leap, it appears that the spiritual agreement made prior to the incarnation is more powerful than Maria or her friend’s “godly” power to manifest a new reality of survival and togetherness in this lifetime, as if there is no free will in this incarnation.” —Jose

Why Do People Appear Unable to Fulfill a Spiritual Intention to Have Fun and Remember Who We Are?

This post is the second in a series of posts describing a session with The Council on March 30, 2013 to answer questions from Jose, Michelle, and Deborah. Our first post in this series, Every Question is Important, described The Council’s point of view that every question a human being has for spirit is an important question because every human being is part of spirit and every question is worthy of spirit’s attention.

In this current post we describe the portion of the session that focuses on The Council’s answer to this fourth of Jose’s four questions:

“If we come to this incarnation to have fun and ‘remember’ who we really are, why do most people, if not all, fail at this attempt?

“If we are that powerful as spirits, why don’t we leave ourselves iron clad clues of who we are so we can retake our power during this incarnation, instead of being collective sheep following false idols while being subjected to the powerful few?”

—Jose

We’ve wondered about variations of this question from time to time and it’s easy to imagine others interested in spirituality have had similar questions. The Council’s initial response to Jose’s question was:

“Because it is almost like a scavenger hunt. If you came in knowing everything you wanted to do and who you were, it would be quite boring.

“And so when you jump in, the experiences that you create for yourself are there to remind you who you are [and] to show you [that] you have the power of choice, you have the power of creation, [and] you have the power to bring love into every situation.”

—The Council

No Wrong Choices

Indecision is the fear of making the wrong choice.

There is no wrong choice.

Spirit is never afraid to experience life.

Indecision is about forgetting

who you really are.

Career Council-ing

Jaqueline’s Questions – Part 2

This is the second of two posts to answer questions from a reader named Jaqueline. In the first post, Trusting You are Spirit in a Physical Body, The Council answers her question about how to connect with inner guidance and find inner peace “even when things seems to be so messed up.”

Jaqueline describes herself as being 23 years old and concerned she hasn’t decided about a career yet. She says, “I know I worry too much and think way too much, but I could really use some clue about what I’m supposed to do in this special lifetime, if I’m going in “the right direction”.

This post describes the portion of our July 24, 2012 conversation with The Council (non-physical spiritual guides) that addresses career and life-direction issues. We found this information personally very helpful and we believe it can also be helpful to others.

At the very end of this post we introduce some new guidance from The Council on the law of beliefs that came at the end of our session on Jaqueline’s questions.

June 21, 2011 Thought for the Day

We are asked, “Do animals become human?”
The answer is yes, if they choose to.
It is part of their expansion.

February 25, 2011 Daily Thought

Choose

You are a powerful being.

When you decided to enter physical form
You understood that you had free will
And the power to create all you desire.

You’re ability to choose
Is your power.

You can choose to live your life the way it’s going,
Or choose at any time to change it.

You can choose to change your thoughts
And you can choose to change your actions.
You can even choose the emotions that you experience.

Your power comes with the recognition
That you have a choice
In everything you do.

You get to choose every step of your journey

—The Council
