Is Sensitivity to Showing My Skin Related to a Past Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eden, who says she’s quite self-conscious about showing her skin in public even though there’s nothing wrong with her skin. She asks if this is issue connected to a past life, and what she can do to work through it and heal it?

The Council says they see two past lives related to Eden’s difficulty exposing her skin. One life wasn’t too long ago where she was Amish and had to cover her skin. Eden never liked this and wanted a life where she was free from these restrictions and could dress differently.

There was also a life in the 1500s where you were part of a very large family with a mother and father who thought they were very religious and had many rules. In this lifetime one of the rules was that you couldn’t show your skin. These people believed the body was shameful and had to be covered.

The cell memories of these two past lives bring the fear you need to be covered up and the fear you can’t change your life, but these past lives are why you’ve come into your current lifetime. You can very slowly change this pattern. You have the freedom to wear shorter skirts and shirts with short sleeves.

One day you can go out without socks on. Go out with something where you can roll up your sleeves. It may be nerve-racking at first. You may not understand your fears and you may not think these things are helping, but you wanted the freedom to experience this fear again in your current lifetime and realize you have choices and you can change this pattern. Maybe start by just walking around your house or apartment with clothes that give more exposure to your skin and see how that feels. Then gradually you can work you way up to going outside and see how that feels.

As you get over the fear of exposing your skin you’ll have the freedom to enjoy the heat because you can dress the way you want.

Making the Right Decision

How often do you make a decision and wonder if it was a good decision, or the right decision? Natalie writes that she recently made a life altering decision and she’d like The Council’s opinion on whether it will lead to a better, brighter future for her and her children. This post looks at The Council’s guidance for Natalie, which seems like good advice for anyone wondering if a decision is the ‘right’ decision.

“We feel there were many tiny little decisions made… and a life altering decision. Many believe that would be some huge decision that was made, but the tiniest decision you make can be life altering.

“But we would like to say here that she should relax, and enjoy, and live in the moment of her new decisions. We would like to stress that. “And so we believe that for a while this will be a very good move.

“Now we would also like to say (so that Natalie is not frightened when we say ‘for a while’) when you reach your goal or your dream, or have what you believe you wanted, and when you experience what you believe you wanted to experience… life would be very boring if that was it.

“There will always be a new desire, a new decision to make, a new path to travel on. And so while we see that her decisions were perfect for right now, she will have many experiences and then there will be more decisions.

“And so to try to say, ‘this is it…’ we would never say that. There is always more, and always more, and always more. And she will always have the guidance; if she pays attention and listens to the little voice, or the little gut instinct and the little bits of intuition she gets, she will constantly move forward.

“Movement on her part that was made right now, we see it as something she will enjoy.”

—The Council

Little Decisions Can Be Life Altering

Aside from The Council’s reassuring opinion that Natalie’s decision is a good one right now for her and her children, they make a few interesting points here that feel like good advice for almost anyone, starting with the idea that a little decision can be as life altering as a great big decision. If you want to change your life, it seems common to believe that really big decisions need to be made.

But The Council reminds you this isn’t the only way to change your life. It’s also possible tiny little decisions like following inspired hunches, instincts, and intuitions, can alter your life just as much as decisions that feels like really big ones.

Enjoy Living in the Moment of Your Decisions

The idea that it’s good to live in the moment has been around for a long time. Eckhart Tolle’s bestselling book, The Power of Now, has done a lot to popularize this idea in recent years. And an internet search for ‘live in the moment’ turns up lots of quotes from respected thinkers like Buddha, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thorough, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein. But it wasn’t immediately obvious what The Council meant by their suggestion that Natalie live in the moment of her new decisions.

You Will Always Have Guidance

When The Council says Natalie will always have guidance, we believe this is a good reminder for all of us. When you’re open to the idea there’s a spiritual part of you that’s always available to offer you helpful guidance when you pay attention to that little voice, or gut instinct, or intuitions that come to you; this guidance will help you with all your decisions.

There Will Always Be More

When there’s uncertainty about a decision, particularly one that feels like it will alter your life in a significant way, once the decision is made it can be tempting to hold on to the decision rather than face the uncertainty of letting it go and making a new decision. But The Council reminds Natalie and the rest of us to be open to new life experiences that inspire new desires, new decisions, and new paths in your life. And by paying attention to the guidance available from the larger spiritual part of you, you can relax and enjoy the forward movement that comes from your new decisions.

You are the Creator of Your Experience

After reflecting on The Council’s comments for Natalie, it feels like their suggestion to live in the moment of her new decisions combines the general idea of living in the moment, with the idea there will always be more to experience and more to decide. And when you live in the moment of these new experiences and decisions, this is where your spiritual guidance is most accessible to the human part of you.

But more than that, from the point of view of The Council’s #2 teaching (which is that you are the creator of the reality you experience), when you live in the moment of your new decisions, every moment becomes an opportunity to create a new decision to focus your attention in ways that adds to your well-being. We believe that makes this very practical advice for all of us.
