Comparing the Ideas of Abraham-Hicks and Brian Weiss

Feeling conflicted about the message of Brian Weiss’s masters compared to the message of Abraham-Hicks

This post answers some very interesting questions from a reader named, Caroline, who’s been a long-time listener and lover of Abraham-Hicks. Caroline says, There’s really never been a message from Abraham I haven’t greatly resonated with. Recently I’ve become fascinated with the topic of reincarnation and read the book, Many Lives, Many Masters, by Brian Weiss. I feel very conflicted and confused after reading this because the messages of these masters seem to conflict with Abraham’s message in many ways. From Abraham I learned reincarnation exists, but its purpose isn’t to fix your past life mistakes or karma. Abraham says karma doesn’t accumulate and isn’t passed on from lifetime to lifetime.

We come into this reality to experience different beliefs

The Council says, first let’s begin with the two souls who are giving these messages. There’s Brian Weiss, who came into this reality to share this message about karma. This message is perceived as totally different from Abraham’s message. This is because we all come to this reality to learn different things and experience different beliefs. Brian Weiss chose to learn what he did about past lives and to share it. He shares this information for people who need to believe what he’s teaching. Abraham has come through Esther Hicks to share what you’d call a different message for other people who need to learn the way Esther is teaching, and function within those beliefs.

There’s no right and no wrong

It’s not that one of these people is right and the other is wrong. With your beliefs (what you choose to believe) you create in your reality. The people who hear about karma and how you bring it from one life to another, they need this teaching and they’ll experience lessons and learning through this teaching.  Abraham says there is no karma and we’re here to have a wonderful time and create. Other souls who are on another level need to learn from that message. There’s no right and no wrong.

Choose the belief that makes sense to you

Learn about these two beliefs and then choose what makes the most sense to you. That’s how this reality is made. It’s made that we come here and have choices for every little thing we do. We have the choice what to believe. We have the choice what path we’ll follow. Many people can be raised one way and they have certain beliefs. As they get older they no longer vibrate with their earlier beliefs and so they change their beliefs. That’s the law of this universe. If Caroline disagrees with Brian Weiss’s message, she can play in her mind with the idea that there are other people who need that belief and she can allow these people to have these beliefs.

Caroline’s Beliefs

Caroline says she learned that the sole purpose of coming to Earth as a human is to have fun creating and sorting through desires and contrast. The Council says this is a wonderful belief for many people.

Freedom of choice is there for you

Caroline says she learned nothing is ever imposed on us, nothing is happening to us, everything is attracted to us through our thoughts and vibration. The Council says everything that happens to us and everything we experience is from our thoughts, our beliefs, and what we planned to experience in this life. No one else comes in and creates for you or tells you, this must be done this way and this must be done that way. The freedom of choice is there for you.

Caroline says, I learned from Abraham we can be, do, or have anything we desire. The Council responds, Of course. And if we want to go without and experience poverty, you have the freedom to do that.

It’s wonderful to be in alignment with your higher self

Caroline says, I learned from Abraham the best and only way you can help someone is to be in alignment with your inner being. I learned you can let yourself off the hook regarding thinking that you need to be helping people because everyone has their own inner guidance system and the best and only way you can help is to be in alignment with your own source. The Council says it’s wonderful to be in alignment with your own source, with your higher self. It’s also wonderful to have positive intentions.

We’re here to help others

You’re not here for the sole purpose of helping yourself. We come here from spirit, which is full of love. We come here bringing that love here and wanting to spread that love in this reality. You can’t do that by only taking care of yourself. You take care of yourself, but you look for others to help, to show compassion, to help them if they’re stuck on some part of their path. We don’t say this is something you have to do, but we’re here to spread the love. We are here to help others, not by forgetting ourselves, but by being in alignment and loving ourselves and sharing that love, compassion, and helpfulness with others.

Being selfish is NOT necessary

Caroline says, I learned from Abraham that being selfish is necessary. The Council emphatically states that being selfish is not necessary. Being selfish isn’t something you think of when you’re in spirit. You didn’t think you’ll come to Earth and only create for yourself. You didn’t think you will come to Earth and be selfish and you will come first and then everyone else will come. This isn’t how we share love.

Quotes from Brian Weiss’s Masters

Caroline says, Here are some quotes from the masters in Brian Weiss’s book. In my opinion, every one of these quotes conflicts with one or all of the statements I made above.

It’s just another path

“People of the religious orders have come closer than any of us to learning the lessons of life because they’ve taken these vows of chastity and obedience. They’ve given up so much without asking for anything in return.” The Council says this is something that people who follow certain religions need to believe. They aren’t closer to being enlightened. They aren’t higher on the rung of learning and moving forward because they’ve given up so much. It’s just another path and that’s the path they’re taking.

It’s not your higher intention to help someone so you can have a reward

Caroline says, “The rest of us continue to ask for rewards, rewards and justifications for our behavior when there are no rewards, rewards that we want. The reward is in doing, but doing without expecting anything, doing unselfishly.” The Council says it’s wonderful to ask for rewards. We believe Abraham called it putting your desires in your vortex. You have every right to want to enhance your life and have rewards. But it’s not your higher self’s intention to help someone so you can have a reward. Your reward will come naturally. The universe will help your reward happen. You’ll help others and you’ll be rewarded. That’s how the universe works. As you’re helpful to others the universe will say, How wonderful. We’ll now help this soul. We’ll show this soul what it feels like to be helped so they’ll continue to help others. We’ll give this person rewards. Whatever they’re thinking they’d like, whatever they’re imagining they can have, the universe will supply that for you.

Caroline says I feel like Abraham would say what I just quoted from Brian Weiss’s masters is such old news. The Council laughs and says it’s just another page in the newspaper.

You don’t come here carrying karma from other lifetimes unless there’s something you desire to experience

Brian Weiss’s masters say you should check your vices before you come to this point. If you don’t, you carry them over with you to another life. Only we can rid ourselves of the bad habits we accumulate when we’re in a physical state. The masters can’t do that for us. If you choose to fight and not to rid yourself, then you’ll carry them over to another life. The Council says this is another belief that many people need. It helps them through fear to learn how to be another person so they don’t carry what they believe they’ve done in other lives. It’s just a belief. You don’t come here carrying karma from other lifetimes unless you want to experience something, as we’d say, the other side of the coin.

It’s your choice

But it’s your choice to experience something you handled one way in one life and you wish to handle another way in your current life. It’s not a punishment. It’s something you choose to bring in and see how the other side feels, or how to do it differently. It’s your choice to go through that. It’s your choice to say: I did it this way. Let me see what would happen if, say, I didn’t turn my back on this person. Let’s see what that would look like. In spirit, very calmly, you plan some of the things you wish to experience. It’s all your choice.

It’s wonderful to ask for more

Caroline says the masters say we must accept what comes to us at a given time and not ask for more. Abraham says asking for more and accumulating desires in your vortex and bringing desires into physical reality is the purpose of life as a human. The Council says when you come here it’s to have a lot of fun, even if it’s stressful or challenging. The fun part is working it out, turning the situation around, and finding another way to experience it. As you’re going through your daily life it’s wonderful to ask for more. It’s wonderful to have desires.

Purpose of a child’s death was not to satisfy anyone’s debt

Caroline says, When speaking about the premature death of Brian Weiss’s infant son the masters say: “Your son’s heart was also important for it was backward, like a chicken’s. He made a great sacrifice for you out of his love. His soul is very advanced. His death satisfied his parents’ debts”. The Council emphatically states that this death did not satisfy anyone’s debt. The parents, the child, everyone agreed to that. It was an experience that was wanted. The purpose of Brian Weiss’s son’s death was to see how, through love, they’d get through it. The child isn’t suffering. The child didn’t have this horrible thing happen to him. The parents aren’t being punished for some karma or something they did in another lifetime. It was an experience of the souls loving each other so much that they’d help each other go through this death.

Many people need to believe there’s karma and debts you have to pay

Bob comments he’s not sure the previous quote is accurate, but he asks The Council if they can explain why the masters may have said what they said. The Council says it’s because there are many people that need to believe there’s karma and debts you have to pay. And usually there’s the belief you have to pay these debts by something horrible happening to you. It’s necessary for those people who need to grow by learning this particular way.

Caroline says: Abraham says over and over that nothing is ever imposed on us, especially something from your previous lives. The Council agrees.

You’ll automatically have people come into your life that match your vibration…

Caroline quotes Brian Weiss’s masters again: “We also must learn not to just go to those people whose vibrations are the same as ours. The Council says we normally will just radiate to each other. You won’t have people in your life for a long time that don’t radiate where you are. If some people are growing more slowly, if they have more difficulties, their vibrations can’t reach yours and stay with you for a long time. You’ll automatically have people come into your life that match your vibration, that will help you with something, or that will push your buttons and make you crazy because you asked for this in spirit. The vibration of love is within all of us.

The vibration is just different

Caroline continues with the same quote: “It is normal to feel drawn to somebody who is on the same level that you are, but this is wrong. You must also go to those people whose vibrations are wrong with yours. This is the importance in helping these people.” The Council says it’s not that the vibration of these people is wrong because they don’t agree with you. Their vibration is just different and it’s in your life for you to decide how to deal with it.

Make choices that bring love into your life

Caroline asks, What’s the deal? Do we have to successfully do certain things in our lifetime? The Council says, No. It’s successful if you planned a certain life and you went through the list and did everything you wanted, which never happens because there’s always more and more you want. You’re just here to have fun and experience things. The #1 thing you’re here to do is to make choices that bring love into your life and this reality. When you can experience this love it grows and grows and everyone in your reality, whether you know them or not, feels this love and it will help them on their path.

There’s no unwanted karma that follows you from lifetime to lifetime

Caroline asks if karma is passed down through lifetimes? The Council says there isn’t any karma. If you believe there is, you’ll come up with a story and create something. If you don’t understand why something is happening, you think you must have done something in another life, and so you believe this is passed down. It’s not passed down. There is no karma that says you must pay for something or settle a debt. And yet there are many people who believe in karma because they need to believe it for how they planned to experience their current life. There is no karma that needs to be settled, cleaned out, or cleared before you can go on, or it will follow you from lifetime to lifetime.

It’s not karma if you choose, in spirit, to experience it

Caroline asks if bad things like the death of a child happen because of your karma. The Council says it doesn’t happen because of your karma. It happens because you’ve all chosen in spirit to experience this.

You can be, do, or have anything you desire

Caroline asks if asking for more in life is bad? The Council says never. We’re supposed to be here to ask for more and more and more, and to experience everything we can in this reality. We’re here to create as much as you want. We believe Abraham said you can be anything and have anything, and that’s why you’re here.

Lastly, Caroline asks if people who give up things like sex and choices get closer to source? The Council has a big laugh at this question and says, No, we don’t agree with that.

Caroline says I feel like all the answers to these questions is, no. The Council laughs again and tells Caroline she has all her answers.

How Can I Get Into Alignment with My Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Angela, in response to a post we wrote called, Feeling Like I Want to Go Home, Even When I Am Home. Angela says, I’ve also always felt like I want to go home even when I am home. It’s nice I’m not the only one who feels this way. I feel like my soul is hurt and that’s part of the reason I feel this way. Can you ask The Council what I’m supposed to be doing? I’m so lost. How can I get into alignment with my purpose so I can find some peace?

The Council recommends creating with your imagination, the way a child does, in order to get into alignment with your purpose. Your answer is within you. There are many things you choose to do in spirit when you create a new reality. Eventually you may pick one of those things and you go in that direction. Or you want to have fun and you check off many different things that you want to do in your current reality. The way to get there is to really not be so serious about it and not worry that you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing.

The main thing you’re here for is to show compassion and love to yourself and others. Be supportive and help others around you that maybe aren’t having an easy time of it. Every day when you show kindness, when you can make a person smile or feel better even for a few moments, that’s your purpose. When you can do this, everything else will come to you.

For you right now we don’t advise much prayer. Just sit quietly and think about what you want. Think of yourself as a spirit and you’re the creator of what happens in your life. Think great thoughts and have dramatic imaginations. When you do this and have some fun with it, you’ll align with your purpose.

You must be in the vibration of happiness to create what you want. You’ve already created with your thoughts many things that are there for you that you want. What you have to do is line up with these creations. See them as if you already have these things and are living with them. But before you can do that you need to find a way to be happy.

Some people might say that sounds simple, but maybe it’s difficult for you to be happy. You’re depressed. You’re lost. You don’t know what to do. That feeling of depression, that feeling of being lost, is because you’re not lining up with the many, many things you’ve already created and are waiting for you in an accessible dimension. Your higher self is trying to tell you to change the way you’re thinking. Change the way you see things.

Try to have fun. Find a way to laugh. And always use your imagination. Whether you believe something can happen or not, if you play like a child with your imagination, you’ll create it. It’s as simple as that.

On the subject of going home, many people want to feel this way because on an intuitive level they remember what it’s like to truly be home in spirit. Each of us at one time or another wants to go home. Maybe it’s because you feel lost and you’ve forgotten how to create. Maybe it’s because you want your life to be easier. It’s a feeling that you need the love and peace that’s here in spirit. You can bring this love and peace to you in your reality and then you’ll feel happy with where you are. And you can truly know you will come home when you finish creating what you want to do.

What’s The Council’s Take On Human Rights Abuses in Palestine?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Over The Wall, who asks what The Council’s take is on the human rights abuses in Palestine, such as the home evictions and demolitions, and the poisoning of crops? I’ve seen this situation brought up briefly in Brian Weiss‘s and Neale Walsch‘s books, but not directly in any spiritual material. How does The Council see this situation playing out as society transforms in future decades?

The Council repeats that things will change as people’s thinking changes. As everyone evolves and they have better thoughts, like wanting peace, and spirit wanting to bring love into this reality, things will eventually change. As we currently see this situation, the way things are going now will continue for the next five to ten years. But what must be understood is that if everyone gets together and wants peace, at any moment the situation will change. In a year or two if people create the reality they want with love and peace, this situation will change.

The Council says the abuse in Palestine is going on now because it’s a reminder. Earlier in history we had concentration camps and wars and now we have these abuses. It begins by trying to keep the information from being made public. But other spirits’ desire for this information clashes with keeping everything under control the way certain governments want. And so there’s a period where the abuse goes on because this experience is wanted in spirit so we can learn about ourselves, about what we create, what we understand, and what we’ll tolerate. This abuse is an experience and a reminder to show you what’s possible when you’re negative and you’re not working on creating a better you.

The change in this abuse doesn’t come when you protest in great masses of people. The abuse will change when you look inside yourself and see what allows this abuse to take place. Ask yourself what you really want? Why are you here? Spirit is here to have experiences and learn from them. We’re trying to learn compassion, support for one another, and freedom to be who we are. But when we don’t go in this direction there’s turmoil.

In your day-to-day life how do you treat yourself? How do you treat others? Do you extend a helping hand? Do you show love no matter how difficult it is? Can you change your perception of things and see them as turning out better? That’s the only reason this abuse is going on – to learn from it and learn about yourself. But the abuse won’t change by fighting against it. It’s by visualizing and creating the peace in your vibration first. And it’s about you reaching out on a daily basis and showing the kindness and understanding that’s needed to no longer want these cruel situations.

Have My Past Lives Influenced My Suffering in My Current Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari, who asks which of her past lives has influenced her suffering in her current life?

The Council says you wished to have a life where you could learn from the suffering in a past life. The one big past life we see affecting your current life was when you were Polish and were put into Nazi concentration camps.

In these camps you saw much suffering. You tried to help the people, but you weren’t successful. In that particular lifetime you were overwhelmed and depressed from seeing the suffering around you. You didn’t want to continue living because you were concerned you were unable to help anyone else.

In your current life you wanted to bring in all the emotions you went through and all the suffering you saw in that past life in the concentration camps so you could understand, on a much smaller level, what these people felt. You wanted to have that feeling so you could try to heal yourself while you were going through what these people went through in that life. Because you were unable to help these people and you felt you didn’t grow and you weren’t supportive in that life, you chose to go through emotions where you’d have suffering and more control in the healing of it.

This is the experience you wanted to have in your current lifetime. You want to do everything in this lifetime to heal your depression and the physical infirmities and to have more understanding and compassion for yourself as you go through this.

In that past life you had lots of compassion and a lot of feeling for these people that were suffering. And in that life you always had the hope that maybe you’d get out of the camps and maybe these people would survive. You had hope. In your current life you want to find that hope again, but have it for yourself.

Now you’re experiencing the other side of the coin. On this level, when you go through all the things you go through, do you understand how it makes you feel? What can you do, in any small way, to change your experience for the better rather than stay in it? Do you grab onto the hope you had in that past life and brought with you into your current life? Are you using this hope? Are you learning about healing with your mind and with energy? What are you doing to help yourself? This is the experience you wanted.

Know that you have the ability to heal yourself. We ask you to find the hope and don’t give up. You didn’t give up in the past life in the concentration camps, which was a tremendous thing. In your current life, because you’re going through similar things, the hope you’re supposed to have is for you. Your challenge is to have confidence in yourself and know that you are the healer and you are the creator in your life. Don’t stay in a state of hopelessness. Do everything you can, even in the smallest ways, to begin helping yourself, and you will see things change for the better.

Begin with the chakra breathing. Read books on spirit. Read books on life after life and life between lives to get ideas about how you planned your life. Know that you set all of this up. In spirit you were sure you’d be able to change your depression. We want to tell you that you can. Try and feel the courage you had in the concentration camps. Try and feel the love you had for all those people and yourself in that lifetime, and how you willed yourself to get through it and help everyone else. You can change your current life. You can turn it around. It’s not hopeless. You didn’t plan for a hopeless life.

Am I From the Pleiades Star Constellation?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Priya, who asks, Am I from the Pleiadian star constellation, and how do I know if I am?

The Council says, Yes, we can tell you that you’ve had several sojourns to the Pleiades, but you’ve also been in other realities in different dimensions. You can read up on the Pleiades if you like, but don’t get into the habit of concentrating too much on that and forgetting to live your current life.

What you’ve created for your current reality is to research and connect with things of the past, but to stay very much in the present. It’s good to learn about the Pleiades, but what are you doing on your spiritual path in your current life? Are you showing compassion to others? This is something you wished to develop in your current lifetime – showing compassion and having more understanding of what’s going on with other people.

You have a tendency to go off in another direction when people explain things to you that you believe are paranormal or that you have an interest in because these things take you out of your current reality. We encourage you to focus more on your current reality. Meditate when you can, even if it’s just five minutes a day, to feel that your focus is staying in your current reality.

In one of your Pleiadian lifetimes you were on a council that showed loyalty, compassion, and helped guide others in the direction they wished to go when they had difficulty finding their way themselves. In your current life, if you find people coming to you with their problems and they like to talk to you about what’s going on, and you like to listen to see how you can help them, this is a talent that’s left over from the time you spent in the Pleiades. When you find yourself listening carefully and getting ideas on how you can help people, you’ll feel wonderful. You’ll feel like you’re serving your purpose. This is because you’ve done this before in the Pleiades.

Priya says, One of my friends told me I am from the Pleiades so I want to know more about it. The Council says it’s wonderful to have a friend that will tell you what they think, but we want you to feel it and connect to it. See what’s going on around you. See if you connect with people that like to bring you their concerns and you can help them. This is more important than someone telling you you’re from here or there. Look for the signs. Look to see how you’re living your life in your present reality, and that will help you.

Priya says, I feel connected to souls that tell me the right time to pass on. The Council says you’re connected to many souls. Many are there that support you in what you do. How you connect to them is what you’re creating in your current lifetime. You can connect with souls that just send you love. You can connect with souls that may give you guidance. It doesn’t have to be just souls who can tell you when to pass on. That’s something you’ve created in this lifetime because you like the mysterious and something that’s completely different.

As you meditate and visualize, and as you take the time to just think: You are a spirit and the creator of your life. As you begin to appreciate you’re the creator of your life and what you can do, and as you begin to appreciate yourself and what you can do, you’ll get all kinds of signs from spirits, not just the ones that can tell you when you can pass on. Don’t limit yourself.

Priya says, I’m not an Rh- blood type. The Council says many people believe the Rh is different and it shows that you are from somewhere else. Some people that have trouble with their lower back and their tail bone think that’s a sign they’re from another dimension or another planet, and the tail bone was a tail. There are many things that people believe. It’s not of any concern whether you’re Rh- or Rh+. You’re a spirit here to create your current reality. Focus on this reality.

Priya wraps up her questions by saying, I want to know more about my soul. The Council says you’re a wonderful and loving soul. You are light. You’ve taken many forms and you’ve visited many dimensions. You’ve helped people from the spirit world and you’ve helped them when you’re in physical reality. You’re here to bring love into this reality. Focus on this reality.

Or you can ask The Council your own question by typing it into a Comment box that appears at the bottom of most of our blow pages.

How Do I Deal with Feelings of Ill Will Towards My Mother?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Ph, who wants to ask about their relationship with their mother. They say, I don’t like her and I guess I fear her because she was abusive and manipulative during my childhood and also later. The Council says when you were in spirit you both agreed on how she would treat you.

Ph says, I feel angry for having to interact with her and I’d prefer to never see her again. At the same time I feel guilty about this and I feel like I should be able to forgive her and have a normal relationship with her. The Council says there’s no purpose in feeling guilty. Your mother’s behavior is something that was planned in spirit and you both played your parts.

Ask yourself, what has this experience done to your thoughts and your feelings? If you cut off communication with your mother and if you choose to never see her again, will you feel that there’s no closure and no understanding? The part we’d like you to understand is that you planned this in spirit because it was an experience you wanted to go through to see how you’d handle this situation. Would you be able to turn your mother’s behavior around and have understanding why she behaved this way towards you? What did you learn from this? Did it make you fearful? Did it make you know your mother was someone you didn’t want to be like?

Going forward can understand forgiveness isn’t really necessary because no one forced this situation upon the both of you. You both agreed to have this experience. Can you look at your mother without hate and not wanting to be together with her again, and realize you are a powerful spirit? You can be with your mother and you can be in control of how you act with each other. You have the power if you allow this relationship into your life, but you decide to live it differently.

It’s important for you to constantly know you are a powerful spirit. You can get control of what direction this relationship goes in. And if you feel this relationship is something you don’t wish to go further within this lifetime, you can cut it off. We’re sure the two of you will come together again in another life to finish this lesson.

Ph says, I feel sad, angry, and confused because I want to care for myself and not deal with my mother. At the same time I feel I need to have compassion. The Council says as hard as this is to believe, you both agreed to experience this difficulty. You planned this in spirit step by step because this was something you wanted to experience.

Your mother came into your life to help you with what you wanted to learn and grow from. You went through the experience of growing up with her. That part is finished. Now ask yourself what you’ve learned. Do you want to put an end to it now, or do you bring love into it instead of blaming her for the way you were treated? How brave of you to go through this experience with her and have her teach you to hate her until you learn this is what you both wanted.

You both wanted to find compassion. If you understand who you are as a spiritual being and who your mother truly is, and if you choose to go the route of showing compassion, you will see a change in your relationship.

Ph wraps it up by asking what’s there for me to learn and do. The Council repeats, compassion and love, but first understand who you are. First understand you both agreed to experience the relationship the way you did. Now that this part is finished, where do you go with this? How do you want to take this relationship the rest of the way? That’s what you need to focus on.

Unfortunately the quality of this recording in this post and the next two posts isn’t up to our usual standards. We’ll do our best to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

What Can I Do To Serve Love?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Venus Trine Jupiter, who says they met a glowing blue-skinned woman on the street the day they submitted their comment. They say, After doing some Googling I’m almost sure she was a Starseed. I felt divinely inspired and touched. Perhaps this was a sign for me. As a result I’d like to ask The Council what I can do now to serve the name of love.

The Council says it’s interesting what you’ve created to bring you to a place where you want to serve and show love. You’ve created this glowing skinned person to make you feel there’s a sign. Many people need a sign before they go off in a healing direction or show love, compassion, and kindness to others. What you brought into your life is a person that had a condition with their lungs that affects the color of their skin because there isn’t enough oxygen.

This was brought into your life and created by you so you’d feel there’s something special about your seeing this blue-skinned woman. It’s wonderful that you created this person because it got you to a place of wanting to be of service and wanting to show love.

Venus Trine Jupiter closes by saying, I work for Jesus Christ and love is my mission. I’d love to hear a message coming from this source. The Council says your belief that you work for Jesus Christ is a wonderful thing. We advise you to study his words and what he taught while he was here on Earth. He wanted you to learn to love one another as you love yourself, not instead of yourself.

Always show yourself love in the things you do. When you look in the mirror, love the image that you’ve created for this lifetime. Speak words of kindness. Be supportive of people when they need it. Send beautiful energy to people you don’t know that you pass on the street. That is being of service.

When someone around you is negative, try to find the words to change the subject, or come at it from a different perspective. This is what Jesus taught. Show love in everything you do – compassion, support, understanding, and being a good listener – and then you’ll be doing what Jesus taught.

How Can I Help This Man Who’s Dealing With Loss?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Curious. She says, A family friend who I haven’t heard from in years, maybe decades, reached out to me recently because he’s dealing with loss and he’s having a difficult time with it. He thought that since I was also grieving he’d get in touch and maybe we can be a listening ear to each other. I’m trying to help him, but I’m struggling with my own grief. I’m very moody and sometimes I’m sharp with him. I talk about my own problems instead of helping him, so I’m not sure I can be of help.

The Council says the two of you pre-planned in spirit for this man to reach out to you, be supportive, and for you to help each other get through the grieving process. When you speak about your own problems, that’s a way of sharing and helping the other person, even if you don’t see it that way. You can talk about feelings and things you think about. When you share these it helps the other person. Don’t be so hard on yourself and know that this was planned in spirit. Your way of helping is by sharing. And pay attention to what this other person shares. It’ll make an impact on your life.

Curious was told she should try to be of service to others, so she’s trying. The Council asks if Curious knows when she’s of service to others she’s also bringing healing energy to herself. It’s never a one-way issue.

Curious asks, How can I be of service to him and others? The Council says by doing exactly what you’re doing. Go through your moods and feelings and share them. How the two of you share your experience with each other is how you help each other in this situation. When helping others, always be a good listener. Be compassionate and find comforting words that you feel. As long as you feel and believe it will help this person, share that.

Curious says, I’m curious if we’ve had past lives together and I’m supposed to help him during this time. The Council repeats that this was pre-planned and mentions that you’ve shared a few other lives together. Because of these other lives there’s comfort with each other, a lot of learning together, and a lot of joy together. In this lifetime, because you’re both dealing with grief, there’s the desire to come together and deal with this grief together.

Curious says, I don’t know his intentions and I don’t want to be rude and directly ask him what they are because he’s very fragile, grieving, and needing support. The Council says his intention is to support you and not feel alone in his grief.

Curious says, I don’t want to assume someone always wants something, but I wonder why he’s contacting me now. The Council says it’s not that he wants something from you. He’s contacting you so you can share your experience.

Curious asks if this relationship will be for a short time and once he’s moved on from his grief, things will be back to how they were and we’re just crossing paths for only this moment? The Council says they feel the creations you’re both working on right now is to keep this friendship and not disappear from each other’s lives. If the both of you continue to have these thoughts of a longer-term relationship, you’ll create this. We can’t predict ahead of time what you’ll create with your thoughts and your feelings, but you planned to stay in touch.

Curious says, This experience has shown me that I’d love to be of service to others and help them. I’m even thinking of trying to learn Reiki or something like that. Is this something I should pursue, or just stick to concentrating all my energy on my sons? The Council says they always advise pursuing healing modalities. By learning Reiki you’ll learn more about energy and vibration and how to work with it. This is a very good thing. By learning Reiki you’ll learn how to heal yourself, you’ll learn how to heal others, and you’ll be of service, which is what you wanted.

Or you can ask The Council your own question by typing it in one of the Comment boxes that appear toward the bottom of most of our blog pages.

Is Shamanism Connected to My Life’s Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, My, who experienced a dark night of the soul and recently started connecting with her higher self and the divine. She feels drawn to shamanism, especially the musical instruments like the drum and rattles, and she asks if there any connection between this interest and her life purpose?

The Council says many people think their life’s purpose is something they’re here to do, but they say you don’t always have a life purpose. Frequently you want to just jump into a lifetime and see what comes up. You want to play with other spirits you know.

The music, drums, and rattles you’ve all done in other lifetimes. You’ve created this interest in your current lifetime for the joy of it.

When something comes up in your life and you have no idea why it’s there, but you’re very drawn to it, we say follow that feeling. Do it, not so much to question where this feeling came from and did I do this before, but to learn if following this feeling makes you happy and brings you joy. This is a reminder you’ve all come into the Earth path to bring in love and joy.

Go forward with this feeling. Go into it more. Then you’ll get another desire and you can figure out something else you like, and we say go for that. And when you’re in that feeling or desire and something else comes along that you’re drawn to, it doesn’t mean you’ve done this in another lifetime, but it could be something you’re creating in your current life because you want to see how you enjoy it.

Whenever there’s something you or anyone is drawn to, go for it. There’s no mistake in doing this. If you follow this feeling and you’ve had enough of it or you decide you don’t like it anymore, then you can change your mind and do something else. It’s that easy. But while you’re here, take what you think will bring you joy and try it.

My says her mission in this lifetime is to help others and be of service, but I just don’t know which direction to go. Any insight will be much appreciated. The Council says your mission is to bring love, show compassion, and show kindness. Share what you learn. This is something you wanted to do. You wanted to discover many different things and share them with others because you wanted to bring joy into this life. This is your main mission. Share anything that gives you joy and by doing this you bring more joy to yourself and others.

Can I Forgive My Brother Without Having Him in My Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who says they’ve never had a close relationship with one of their brothers. The Council says you’ve had close relationships in other lifetimes. One of your brother’s lessons was to not be as kind in your current life as you’ve experienced him in a few other lifetimes. One of the things your brother wanted to experience was being difficult and seeing what that feels like. He wants to learn about this and bring it back to spirit.

When your brother became very difficult you agreed in spirit to try and still love him and not find fault with him. One of the lessons for the two of you is forgiveness. He wants to learn to forgive you if you turn away from him. But mostly he wants to forgive himself for not being able to control when he becomes mean or very negative to people. You want to learn to accept him the way he is and be able to forgive him.

The Council says when your brother becomes negative, mean, and unapproachable, which is all part of his lessons and what he chose to experience in this lifetime, his acting out is supposed to show the people around him the state he’s in. This sort of behavior isn’t meant to be about the people he’s insulting or hurting. It’s meant to show the people around him how your brother is hurting inside and how lost he feels. This is just part of the lessons your brother chose this lifetime.

When you’re able to realize your brother’s behavior is a choice he’s making, look at what these choices are teaching you. This was pre-planned in spirit so the people around him would learn how someone who’s hurting doesn’t know how to show love. Your brother tries to hurt others in some way because he hurts so much.

Anonymous says she tries to avoid her brother and say very little to her parents, siblings, and even my husband about him. The Council says this is a good choice.

Anonymous says she knows her brother needs compassion and The Council agrees. She asks if this is something she can do without getting involved in her brother’s life and The Council says of course. Forgiveness starts with understanding your brother is hurting a great deal for many different reasons. You don’t have to put yourself in your brother’s presence and experience this hurt yourself. Send him love, light, and good thoughts that he gets to a place where he can feel comfort. And wish him success in what he needs to experience.

It’s good to remember your brother chose this path. If you want him to change when he hasn’t learned the lesson he planned to learn from behaving the way he does, it would mean you’re trying to stop him on his learning path. Allow your brother to be the way he is. From a distance send him thoughts of success and happiness so he can go through this difficult journey and learn what he wants to experience.

If you can’t send your brother love, you can send him the thought of you forgiving him for hurting you or others. Wish him the joy and happiness of being able to travel this path and learn what he wishes to learn. Or you can send him white light to protect him on his journey to help him stay in touch with his higher self and perhaps find another way to be.

The best way you can send your brother love is to allow him to be the way he is, as hurtful as he is to others and himself. There’s a purpose for his behavior and you’ve all agreed to participate in this. Allowing is the first step of love and forgiving.

Anonymous asks The Council if she and her brother have unfinished business. The Council says the unfinished business is that he wishes to feel love from you and know it’s there, even if you can’t be around him. If you cross paths or speak, always treat him with kindness because he needs this. Remember you agreed in spirit to experience your brother this way in your life. It’s a difficult journey for him and for the people around him. What’s unfinished is for your brother to feel accepted by you, if not now, eventually. This doesn’t mean you need to be around him. You need to learn about forgiveness and allow your brother to be who he is. That’s what you both planned and what remains unfinished.

When you can allow your brother to be who he is, even if he’s not consciously aware of this in his physical form, his higher self will know and allow your brother to somehow know there’s forgiveness and acceptance, even if he’s still not in a good place. Forgive your brother the best you’re currently able.

Anonymous says she worries she’ll marry her brother in her next life. The Council laughs and says this is possible if you choose to. The Council understands you don’t want to be married to him the way he is in your current life, but things would be totally different in a new life.

Anonymous asks The Council what she needs to do to finish her experience of her brother. The Council says to send him love and light. Accept him and know he’s very brave to choose the lesson he’s chosen. He’s having difficulty within himself so when you send him love and light you help him on his path.

How Can I Heal My Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Michael, who starts by asking, “If a person has paid off his karmic debts…,” at which point The Council interrupts the question. They say for centuries many people believed there’s a karmic debt you have to pay off and they add, there’s no such thing as a karmic debt.

There are experiences you choose in spirit to relive in order to experience it again, but you relive these experiences differently. For example, you can heal a situation, you can choose to help others through a similar situation, and you can give yourself more understanding. But there is no karmic debt that says you must do this thing to pay back for something you did in a past life. You choose what you create in each lifetime because you’re learning from it and you’re being helpful to others.

Michael goes on to say, “…and has learned so many lessons from his addiction and it has completely ruined his life…” Again The Council interrupts and says maybe you look at it as ruining this one particular life, but according to your spirit, what’s happening is exactly what you want. You can gain additional understanding of a situation or show others what it’s like to be in your situation.

Michael continues, “…but he is now completely ready to fight it with all his might and heal himself. Can The Council suggest how he’d go about this?” The Council says Michael’s idea of fighting his addiction will get him nowhere in terms of his healing. The idea of fighting is negative and there’s too much pressure there.

If you don’t want to experience addiction anymore and you’re ready to heal your life, acknowledge what you’ve gone through. It’s your choice to change your life now and not to go through addiction anymore. There’s less pressure and more love in this approach. Just the fact there isn’t a war between you and your addiction will make all the difference it the world in terms of how you come through this.

If you believe you have to fight your addiction and you don’t heal this part of your life in this lifetime, when you transition you get more understanding. There will be spirit guides to go through this with you and remind you that when you came into this life, you don’t come to fight anything. You don’t come to push anything away. You came into your physical life to learn from it and choose how you want to go further with it. You’re always reminded to bring love into every situation.

Just acknowledge what you’ve gone through, where you are now, and how you want to move forward. Knowledge came with your addiction. Acknowledge you’re a spirit who picked this difficult challenge, but you’ve had enough and you wish to change your life. Your higher self will show you the way to get through your addiction. You should always have compassion for yourself and what you’ve gone through. You can change anything in your life.

Michael closes by saying The Council must release him and he asks how they can do this. The Council says they’re unable to release anyone from anything. You’re in charge of your life. We can only tell you to bring love into it for how brave you were to choose the difficulty of addiction. Now you can have another choice for your life, and that’s you releasing yourself.

What Happens When a Soul Learns All It’s Lessons?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Wonder, who asks what happens when a soul learns all the lessons there are to learn.

The Council says we are never finished learning. There are always more levels. When you feel you’ve had enough learning you’d come back into another life and work on those lessons with other people. You’d help them discover these lessons and the answers they’re looking for. You’d be the catalyst to bring these people to the point of learning about the many things you already know. There’s always another approach, whether it’s to learn for ourselves or to help someone else learn.

Next Wonder asks if souls have to repeat any lessons even if those lessons have already been learned. The Council says you can go through a lesson again if you choose to repeat it because you want to see this lesson from a different perspective or you want to repeat it to teach this lesson to someone else.

Lastly Wonder asks if souls ever quarrel over anything in spirit, or are they always about showing love no matter what? The Council says it’s always about showing love. There is no quarreling in spirit. There is sharing, there’s compassion, there’s happiness, and there are jokes. It’s the most loving place you can imagine. That’s what it’s like in spirit.

Did I Know This Man I Love in Another Lifetime?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Susie, who says she fell madly in love with a boy when she was 16 years old. My father was a holocaust survivor and the boy wasn’t Jewish so he broke us up. I got married, but I’ve loved this boy for the rest of my life. Four years ago and 45 years after we broke up I contacted this man and he was as amazing as he was when I was 16. I’m still madly in love with him.

The Council says in at least four lifetimes Susie was childhood friends or brother and sister with this man and there’s great love from these past lives.

Susie says she has nothing in common with her husband, but she still loves him, but nothing like the way she feels for this boy she met when she was 16. She says the boy got involved with drugs when she left him, he’s become an alcoholic over the years, and she feels responsible.

The Council says it’s not necessary to feel responsible for this man. These are his lessons and his choices. You have no idea what people are trying to learn when they are going through something they’ve chosen. You’ve only agreed to be there for part of his experience.

Susie says she wants to cure this man. The Council says you don’t cure anyone. You show love, you show acceptance, compassion, and patience. You’re there to possibly suggest a way to follow through on what they’re experiencing, but you don’t cure them. This isn’t your responsibility.

Susie says her daughter was born with an eating addiction and she’s trying to heal both her daughter and this man she met when she was 16. The Council says again that Susie can’t heal them. Everyone chooses what they need to experience, even if they don’t remember in their human body why they make their choices. There are things they need to experience for soul growth and to teach the people around them. You can’t cure these people or change their path.

Susie says she feels her daughter and this love of her life are meant to be together. The Council says she didn’t choose in spirit to be married to this man in her current lifetime. What was chosen was familiarity, friendship, closeness, and support. You’ve chosen to be friends with this man because there are things you need to learn. Everyone has a lesson. This doesn’t mean you’re meant to be married or in an intimate relationship like marriage. Be there to learn from each other. The three of you wanted to experience acceptance.

Susie says she needs The Council to release her daughter and this man from their soul contract. The Council says they can’t release anyone from their soul contract. No one is in charge of releasing someone from their contract but themself. In your human form you may not understand why you’ve made certain choices, but your higher self knows. When your higher self knows you’ve learned your lesson or experienced enough you’ll release yourself.

Between you, your daughter, and your friend you need the ability to speak with each other, listen to what’s truly going on rather than what you think is going on, show acceptance, and allow each other to be who they are. Allow them to make their own choices. Give love and compassion and know every step of the way you’ll find something to learn from your experience.

The Council says in the past lives Susie and her friend have shared there’s been a lot of happiness and fun and that love has drawn them together in their current life to go through more difficult challenges.

The Council tells Susie she’s here to experience love, to bring love from the spirit world into your current reality. In every way you can show love to yourself, to this friend, and to your daughter.

What Lessons Can I Learn From My Deteriorating Marriage?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Heartbroken, who says her marriage is in shambles because of an individual. She wants to separate from her husband, but he wants to be in the marriage. Heartbroken wants to know what lessons she’s supposed to learn from this experience because she doesn’t understand what to do.

The Council says they see a lifetime not to long ago in Germany that relates to Heartbroken’s current life. In that life Heartbroken was a female who didn’t have any compassion, commitment, or understanding of the people around her and she expected perfection from these people. There was no patience with other people. Heartbroken had many suitors in that life and if they didn’t meet all her standards she’d leave them heartbroken.

In your current life try to understand where the other person is coming from and what they’re experiencing. Have patience and commitment with other people. At the end of your life in Germany you were very lonely and you had a lot of regret for how you treated people. In your current life you want commitment to people so that you don’t experience the loneliness you experienced in Germany. You want family and love. In your current life you want to learn about understanding, emotions, and commitment.

If there’s another person in your life and you think it would be better to get out of your marriage and be with this new person, if the lesson of patience and understanding hasn’t been learned, you will find fault with this person and want to move on to a new person. And this scenario will continue in your life until you stay still and try to understand where the other person is coming from.

What makes your husband behave the way he does? Is he asking for forgiveness? Is there a true desire to come together? Instead of throwing your marriage away is it possible for you to understand your husband better and move forward?

You need to get to the lesson in your experience. Do you understand why your marriage is in shambles? Is there a point where forgiveness can be given to your husband and then move on if you feel this is necessary? The main thing here is to understand your husband because in your past life in Germany you never bothered to understand people.

What is your role in the marriage? Why is it in shambles? What is your responsibility for your actions? Understand why your husband did what he did. Look for compassion, understanding, and forgiveness and then move on from your marriage if this is what you want.

Why Did I Choose to Have an Abusive Childhood?

This post answers questions for The Council from a woman named, Kate, who asks why she had such an abusive and sad childhood? And why didn’t she decide to get away from this negative environment when she could have easily done this?

The Council says Kate chose an abusive childhood to learn forgiveness, and your spirit knew you needed to stay in this abuse in order to learn from it. You were exactly where you needed to be. Being in this abusive relationship was an agreement you made with the other spirits involved to go through this abuse so they could learn their lessons and you could learn yours.

Think back to this situation. What have you learned? Even if it’s only that you don’t want to be like the people who abused you and this isn’t the life you want for yourself going forward. What does this experience remind you of? Why were you afraid to leave? Do you need to learn compassion for the other person or people? Do you need to learn compassion for yourself?

Kate asks what lesson was she supposed to learn from this abuse. The Council says there were many lessons, but they feel one of the reasons you wanted to experience this was to learn from it so you could help other people who go through abusive relationships. You would speak to these people from your heart about what it’s like to be in this kind of relationship and what you’ve learned. This will help other souls get through their lessons. You wanted to go through this somehow, learn from it, and pass along the wisdom gained from your experience to people you would meet in the future that need to hear about it. And The Council feels this will take place.

Kate can read the book, The Little Soul and the Sun, by Neale Donald Walsch to gain additional insight about how spirits plan their lives before being born and how they can learn about forgiveness.

What Is The Council’s Spiritual Perspective on Donald Trump’s Presidency?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Audrey, who asks for a spiritual perspective on Donald Trump’s presidency.

The Council begins by saying our collective consciousness has decided to bring the lessons of contempt, dishonesty, and manipulation, and there are others who are trying to bring in honesty, goodness, and love. And this was chosen by everyone on the planet at this time.

The Council says the man who will come as the correct president will be intuitive, honest, and able to point out his mistakes and laugh at himself. He will be president to teach the idea we are all one in this country and on this planet rather than teach competition, separation by boundaries, skin color, and organization. The way he’ll do this is by working with others to show more love, understanding, and compassion.

The Council says after Donald Trump there will be another president and they wonder if it will be time to for this new president to swing the pendulum the other way and teach love and happiness and working together. And they say even when this happens there will be people who love this, but there will always be people who see this a different way.

The way things are will continue until we reach a state where we’re closer to spirit, tired of fighting, and tired of lying and manipulation. A new lesson will be born on this planet for all of us. And when we realize our purpose for being on Earth is to raise the energy of this planet, things will begin to change.

The Council advises not being against one president or another, but see which president you align more with and picture what that president stands for more and more until peace comes into this reality and the vibration of everyone on this planet will raise.

The Council says one of the purposes of Donald Trump’s presidency is to bring a certain kind of awareness to the people of this country and the world and to pave the way for a new president who exhibits different qualities. Then it’s up to each person to decide what they want in their lives. What are the new candidates bringing into our reality? Is there turbulence? Is there disturbance? Or are people now beginning to want a president with a more peaceful nature who is able to find ways to work together, remove boundaries, and realize we’re all one?

The Council closes by saying it doesn’t do any good for individuals to get upset with Donald Trump’s policies. You are here to see these policies, decide how you feel about them, and when you decide, do the inner work of focusing on the kind of leader you want for your country.

Who Was I In My Past Lives?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Mona, who’s been fascinated by the idea of reincarnation for many years and is interested in learning who she was in her past lives.

Mona was the wife of a Roman soldier who had many servants and she was very popular in the courts of the high rulers. But no matter what she did in that lifetime and no matter how she advanced in her standing, it was never enough. The Council asks if Mona is satisfied and grateful for what she has in her current lifetime, or are you always looking for more?

The Council sees Mona was a teacher in the early 1800s and they ask her if she’d like to teach or help people in her current lifetime. Do you like to reach out and be there for people when they have problems? These lives were very good for you and you were very close to spirit and taught love and kindness.

Because these two lives jumped out at The Council they ask in your current life if you experience people that are difficult to be around, can you find the compassion for forgiveness, for understanding, and for helping these people?

The Council adds there was a life where Mona was involved in medicine and helping others. And because she enjoyed this, these emotions, thoughts, and desires are very much with her in her current life to reach out and help in any way. Helping others is the path you wish to be on in your current incarnation.

The Council also sees a lifetime where Mona was a woman who drove a truck and delivered food and donated items to poverty-stricken people. And The Council laughs that Mona loved driving that truck.

If a Soul Chooses a Difficult Life, Does the Soul Enjoy Suffering?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, which are based on an earlier post titled, Some Interesting Questions About Spirit. ImportantOrNotBlog asks if a soul chooses a life of difficulty full of pain and hardship, does that mean the soul enjoys suffering?

The Council says when you choose, as spirit, whatever you choose before you come into your current reality, you always think you’re a spirit and you’ll know how to handle whatever it is you’ve chosen. But when you come into your reality, you forget how to handle what you’ve chosen and how to turn it towards love.

The purpose of of forgetting is to learn how to work with whatever you’ve chosen and be able to turn it around. When you do this, there is major soul growth. This process can be very difficult for some people. But the more you can accept the hardship you’ve chosen, and show patience, and learn to work with your situation and slowly see it improve, you’ll feel stronger about yourself knowing no matter what the obstacle you’ve created for yourself, you’re working on it.

It’s not that the soul enjoys suffering. It’s important to remember who you truly are as a spiritual being in a physical body. As you’re able to bring the feeling of spirit into your physical reality, the easier it will be for you to experience positive changes.

The Council points out that sometimes there are spiritual contracts to teach people around you by your example because in other lifetimes these people didn’t have the compassion you’re learning in this lifetime. Or maybe the people around you were sick in another lifetime and you took care of them, and now they want to experience the other side of the coin and they choose to care for someone in this lifetime.

There’s a lot going on with people who are experiencing difficulties, and these difficulties aren’t only for the person experiencing them, because these people have agreed with the others around them how each one of them will grow from these difficulties. It’s a great blessing for everyone involved with these difficulties to go through them concentrating on compassion and love.

ImportantOrNotBlog says they understand difficult situations are for soul growth, but they ask, to what end? The Council says there isn’t any end, there’s just growth. When you return to spirit and you see the lives you’ve touched, you want to do more. And so you create lives where you have the opportunity to do more so you grow and the people in your life grow. And the more love you bring into your reality, the less suffering there will be.

ImportantOrNotBlog asks The Council if souls exist at different levels? The Council says if you mean is one soul smarter than the other, they respond that in some lifetimes the answer is yes and in some lifetimes the answer is no, but we’re all growing and everyone grows at their own pace. We’re all trying to evolve into spirit so everyone can experience love.

ImportantOrNotBlog closes by asking if soul growth helps the soul get to a higher spiritual level? The Council says they don’t feel comfortable with the word, level, but they say soul growth will take you to a higher spiritual understanding. It brings more love into your world and you grow. And with this love, as it grows within you, you want to share this love, and you’re in a great hurry to get back into another lifetime so you can stretch that love and grow more from it. And you want to put this love into another reality so others can feel this love and grow from it.

Listen to the entire 7-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for ImportantOrNotBlog and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about this guidance.

Why Do Animals Have to Suffer and How Can We Stop Their Pain?

This post answers questions for The Council from a woman named, Violet, who asks why animals have to suffer so much at the hands of humans, and how can we globally stop animal pain?

The Council says it was never planned that animals would come into our reality and suffer. Animals carry the energy of love and are here to teach love, particularly at this time where many people have taken a negative path. The animal was created to come into this reality and help all these people by teaching them loyalty and trust.

On a worldly scale in places that have war and destruction, the animals are there to carry the energy of love, to give people something to care about, and to teach compassion, if not for other people then for the animals.

The Council says animals don’t have to suffer, but they come in contact with people who are abusive and most of these animals are here to teach abusive people to change, or to help other people stop this abuse by their compassion and love for these animals.

Violet asks how we can globally stop the pain these animals experience, and The Council says, not with protests and fighting. The way to stop animal suffering is by doing more of what you can for them. Examples include supporting groups that try to save animals, perhaps have an animal or two to take care of, and support zoos, rescues, and places that give animals homes and new beginnings. As you take these steps, the vibration of animal caring and loving expands and will reach worldwide.

Just by caring enough and taking an action, no matter how small, you’re helping these animals create the environment they’re here to experience. When an abandoned animal is given a new home and shown love, their vibration and love grows. And it grows for the people that are caring for these animals, and this touches all people in this reality.

The first step is to acknowledge the suffering of the animals, but not to focus on the suffering. Focus instead on the steps you can take to change the suffering. In your mind send the vibration of love to all animals. This little bit can begin the change toward stopping hunting of endangered species, and keeping our environment as close to nature as possible.

Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Violet and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What Past and Present Life Choices Cause Chronic Pain?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, InDespair, who says The Council mentions (in a different post) that we choose chronic pain to heal our beliefs from past lives that we’ve chosen to bring into our current lifetime. And InDespair asks, “What beliefs from a past life or lives would cause us to choose enduring chronic pain in our current life.”

The Council begins by saying that chronic pain isn’t always brought in from another lifetime. Sometimes it’s just an experience that’s wanted in your current life.

In another lifetime perhaps you’ve seen someone suffering and didn’t understand it, or didn’t show compassion and help the person who was experiencing it. You may choose to experience this chronic pain in this lifetime so you have more understanding of it, and going forward in this life and future lives, you’ll bring more love to any situation where suffering is involved.

Many people suffer sometimes and they wonder why, and question what they’ve done to deserve this suffering. The Council says they’ve come into this lifetime to have the people around them learn patience and compassion and to understand what you are going through. This pain is chosen to help another soul or family of souls learn from your suffering.

The choice to go through extreme pain, hardships, or anything difficult is always the choice of the individual. Each person planning their reality in spirit will plan what they desire to experience, or they’ll experience something to help another soul go through suffering and have more understanding of it. The experience of suffering is never something  that’s forced on an individual.

Some people choose suffering to learn patience and love and to have some understanding of this experience. Many souls choose suffering to teach others, and there’s still learning on your part as you go through this. Is there a wish to turn the suffering around and heal it?

Perhaps you’ve agreed with other spirits that want to learn about someone going through pain and suffering, and you’ll tell them that you’ll go through this suffering for them. And they’ll learn from this to give you such love and understanding that you’ll have the strength and understanding to turn the suffering around and realize that love conquers everything.

The Council says you could’ve experienced pain in a prior life and didn’t know how to change it and make it better. And you wish to go through this pain in your current life to try and change it this time around. Sometimes in other lifetimes the others around you had this pain and you didn’t understand it or didn’t have patience for it. And so you want to experience this pain in your current lifetime to bring in more love and understanding about this.

The Council says it’s up to the individual whether they choose to heal this pain they’ve chosen. Many times a person will heal this pain when the spirit of another person has learned what it needs to learn from this suffering.

Bob asked The Council what’s in it for the person who chooses to experience chronic pain their whole life so others can have the experience of this. The Council says you are showing love to others by helping them experience what they need to learn and grow. In spirit when someone wishes to learn about suffering, and someone volunteers to go through this so others can experience it, it’s because we all love one another. You volunteer to go through this out of love for these people, even if this love isn’t conscious on a human level. And there’s always spiritual growth involved, even if the person going through the suffering isn’t aware of this growth at the time they’re experiencing it.

The Council say sometimes the person going through suffering becomes wiser about being a spirit in a physical body, having choices, and having the power to create in your life what’s necessary for you to also grow. It’s always a two-way street. Everyone learns from the experience of suffering. That’s the plan.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for InDespair and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Why am I Afraid of My Mother, and What Is Her Role in My Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who asks about their distressing relationship with their mother. PE says their mother triggers a lot of anxiety in them, which PE doesn’t understand. What is their mother’s role in PE’s life? PE doesn’t feel love about her the way some people feel about their mothers, just fear and sadness.

The Council says there’s a strong connection between the two of you to another lifetime in India. In that life your mother was also in poor physical health. She was unable to walk and in a lot of pain. She brought her poor health into her current lifetime to try and heal it.

In the lifetime in India you were a servant to your mother and you were treated very badly. You were beat many times. In her current life your mother wanted to  be around the same souls that were around in the lifetime in India to try to create love between her and these souls.

Unfortunately your mother had you killed in the life in India because you weren’t able to fulfill all her wishes. The Council can imagine your fear of your mother in your current lifetime would be great if you brought this fear in order to heal it. Can you let go of some of this fear and talk to your mother about how you feel around her and how you’d like to change that? Can you get her to talk about her feelings? You want this in your current life, but The Council doesn’t see you being quite ready yet.

The fear you carry is very real, but in your current life you wanted to try and change the relationship for the better. Is it possible for you to show your mother some caring and compassion? Don’t keep yourself around her all the time because it’s good for you to pull away, meditate, and bring in the light and good feelings for yourself. Can you limit your time when you see your mother? And in this time, no matter how she acts, can you show a little caring? This will begin to change your relationship.

Don’t blame yourself or feel bad because you’re afraid of your mother in your current life. Once you realize you can change the way you perceive this relationship – even if your mother decides not to change for whatever reason because she’s unable to – when you go forward and show love and compassion no matter what, you will grow. And your mother’s spirit will experience your loving energy and sometimes this is enough to begin the change.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

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.

Shame Over Hair Loss

This post answers questions from an anonymous reader who asks The Council why she created a health condition that causes her to loose hair along her front hair line.

The Council says Anonymous has created this lesson of shame and of loving and accepting herself. This is what she’s working on now.

Anonymous says she knows The Council advises staying in a positive vibration for healing, but when she tries to be positive she’s often overwhelmed by deep feelings of shame.

The Council says when Anonymous looks in the mirror she’s looking at her physical reality. She’s created this hair loss to look deeper than her physical reality. Does she have good thoughts toward others and herself? Does she send love and compassion to others and herself? If she thought she could never heal this hair loss condition, can she love herself any way? Can she let go of the shame?

The Council says Anonymous has brought this shame into her life from several other lifetimes and in her current lifetime she’s experiencing this shame over her hair loss. Because it’s been difficult for her to work on this shame and loving herself in other lifetimes, her spirit created hair loss in her current lifetime so she could work on letting go of the shame and loving herself. If Anonymous can learn to love and appreciate herself with her hair loss, her hair will begin to grow back.

The Council suggests focusing on the happiness that can be created as Anonymous moves forward in her life. In the vibration of love, hopefulness, happiness, and going forward no matter what she sees in the mirror, this is the beginning of change.

Anonymous says she knows her spirit has created this hair loss and she’s grateful for the knowledge and growth that’s come as she seeks answers. Yet she feels a part of her soul is breaking because of the shame she feels when she looks in the mirror.

The Council says her soul isn’t breaking. Her soul is asking her to look at herself and realize her soul and her physical body are one.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Is There A Chance for a Relationship with a Past Flame?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Miss Energy, who recently connected with someone she had a relationship 20 years ago, but every now and then he gets really angry with her and tries to blame her for something.

The Council asks Miss Energy what the feeling is that she’s aware of. If the relationship makes you uneasy, if you have doubts, if there’s something you’re not understanding, then The Council says they believe it’s in her best interest to be aware of these feelings. Keep talking with this person and be aware of what’s being created between the two of you. Is it satisfying for you? Or is it showing you it’s best to leave this relationship in the past and not get involved?

The Council says Miss Energy has the ability to see the journey this other soul is on. What she wants is to have some understanding and compassion for this person and the trials he goes through without judging them, but be aware of the difference between the two of them. This man’s journey is much different than her own.

The Council says perhaps this person doesn’t understand Miss Energy’s beliefs. And this is carried over from another lifetime where she was very much into the healing arts and many people came to her for help. In that lifetime this man was also there and thought maybe there was something evil in what she was doing.

Recently after traveling out of state to visit this person he told her she was his dream girl, but he doesn’t share her beliefs. She believes in energy and he’s a Christian who thinks this is forbidden. Miss Energy says she respects that this man has different beliefs from her, but he’s pretty much cut her off now.

Miss Energy asks The Council if this man will ever accept her for who she is and will he want more of a relationship? The Council says as the situation stands now, from what they see, part of this man’s journey is also to not judge, and allow her to be who she is and believe in what she believes. And she’s to allow him to be on his journey and believe what he believes.

At this point The Council doesn’t see the two of them coming together? But they add that they’re able to create and have whatever they want. It takes focus on the positive and how they want the relationship to be.

But The Council asks if Miss Energy is able to accept this man the way he is? Or will it be too difficult to go into this relationship at this time when there’s still so much for the both of you to learn?

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Miss Energy and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Questions About My Two Abortions and One Birth

This post answers questions for The Council on the subject of abortion from a reader named Mind at Peace. She says she’d been pregnant three times, but only able to give birth to her second child because the first and third pregnancy were aborted.

She says the first abortion was an accident because she wanted the baby, but she decided to abort her third pregnancy because she wanted to go back to school and do something with her life. Now she sometimes regrets her third abortion and wonders if she made the correct choice.

The Council says, as they’ve stated in other posts, there isn’t any reason to regret an abortion, miscarriage, or not seeing a pregnancy go full term. They say in each case the abortion has been agreed upon by all souls involved, including the soul of the unborn child.

Mind At Peace asks The Council to shed some light on why the third soul came into her life. We assume this question is about her third pregnancy and second abortion, but The Council first answers as if she asked about her child that was born. They say Mind At Peace and this child knew each other from previous lifetimes and there are some experiences they’re planning to go through together.

After their brief answer about this child The Council says the other two souls didn’t want to come into this reality, but wanted the experience of being in a mother’s womb, and Mind At Peace agreed in spirit to provide them with this experience.

The Council says during her first and third pregnancy Mind At Peace wasn’t really prepared to bring a child into the world. These pregnancies were to learn appreciation for bringing life forward and learn about the responsibility involved. They also took her attention off problems that would have overwhelmed her and had her concentrate on the unborn child rather than her other problems.

The Council says the lesson for Mind At Peace and her child was to have compassion and care for each other. In another lifetime in Asia they were brother and sister and very poor. Living on the streets this poverty caused separation between the two of them. They each cared for themselves instead of each other.

At the end of Mind At Peace’s comment she ask if her first aborted child came back to her as her second child, and The Council says yes.

Listen to our entire 4-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Mind At Peace and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Astral Travel, and Communicating with Spirit for Others

This post answers questions from a reader named Dee, who asks The Council why her ability to astral travel began, and also if she’s meant to communicate with spirit for other people.

Dee begins by saying she started to notice her connection with spirit about 3 years ago. It began as small coincidences or synchronicities, evolved into dream visitations, feeling spirit around her, and eventually astral traveling, which began spontaneously.

The Council responds by saying every spirit in this reality (the Earth path) astral travels at night while they are asleep. Sometimes there’s a memory and sometimes there isn’t. Everyone is helping others, visiting others, seeing others who have passed on, learning to set up new lessons for themselves, and more. While the body rests the spirit is experiencing so much more.

Dee says she went through a period where she remembered astral traveling fairly regularly, meeting with her deceased mother and with her spirit guides. She’s also had dreams of people who feel familiar in the dream state but are unknown to her in her waking reality. The Council says in Dee’s waking reality she doesn’t know these people, but they are part of her soul family that she’s worked with in many other lifetimes.

Dee says in the last 6-8 months she hasn’t been recalling her astral travel like she did before. The Council says there’s less need right now to remember what’s being experienced in Dee’s astral travel, but this can easily come back.

Dee says she’s always wondered why (remembering) her astral travel started in the first place since it happened so abruptly. The Council said this projected her into understanding and opening up to so much more than she was open to before. Dee wanted to get into the spiritual realm with more understanding of who she is and what can be done at a quicker level.

Dee says she’s met with her spirit guides in dreams. The Council says many people meet with their guides and spirits that helped them plan their current lifetime. The Council adds that it’s possible to change things we wish to change in our current lifetime during these meetings. In other words, what we planned in spirit isn’t written in stone.

Dee asks if she’s meant to communicate with spirit for other people in addition to herself. The Council says for right now, learn as much as she can for herself and others will come to her with questions, and she can help them out by getting information for them.

The Council closes by saying Dee should go forward and explore, and know that caring for others and showing love and compassion will bring the people to her that need her experience and advice. Work on herself and what she’s experiencing and the rest will come.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Dee and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Questions About Spiritual Enlightenment

This post answers questions about spiritual enlightenment from a reader named SoulPeace. SoulPeace has been reading about Buddhist culture lately and is drawn to the subjects of spiritual growth, human reincarnation, and lesson learning.

The Council says this is a big step in itself because SoulPeace has opened to enlightenment and knowledge that will help them move forward in their current lifetime and on an easier path.

SoulPeace asks The Council if we’re able to learn our lessons without being born on the Earth path? The Council says we need an Earth body to learn what we desire to learn when we choose to be born in a physical body. We come to Earth to learn about emotions.

There are other realities besides Earth where you experience only the energy shifts within you. You learn with your thoughts: both positive and negative. You don’t need a physical body.

The main reason we come to Earth is there is so much we desire to learn where we need a physical body to learn it. In other realities we can exist only as energy or thought forms and we are also able to learn in these non-physical realities.

When you’re back home in spirit, that is another reality. And many choose while in spirit to help people who choose to live in the Earth reality, and this is another place where you learn. You’re able to learn lessons without being born into a physical body, but these lessons are different from the ones you learn when you’ve chosen to be born in a physical body.

SoulPeace asked The Council how we can achieve freedom from being born into an Earth body and achieve moksha or nirvana (freedom from death and rebirth). The Council says every time you finish an incarnation it’s always your choice whether to come back in an Earth body or remain in spirit and not come back.

The Council says in spirit we always have the desire to come back and learn something on the Earth path. There’s always a new goal; something else that wants to be experienced.

If you decide not to come back, you’d remain in spirit and you’d learn through the experience of others who do come back. You’ll tap into their thoughts and feelings and continue learning that way. And sometimes by doing this, it strikes a chord in you where you think about trying the Earth path again.

SoulPeace closes by saying they’re trying to find peace for themselves and wants to know where to begin in order to experience this. The Council says you begin by knowing you are a spirit within your physical body that you’ve created. They say to see the things you’ve created in this life that helps you experience love and joy, and to follow that feeling and do more of these things.

As you experience one joy and it leads you to another and another, you will find what you planned to experience when you were in spirit before being born into your physical body. Know that your job is to experience love and joy and compassion for others, and the rest will all fall into place.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for SoulPeace and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What is My Spiritual Purpose?

This post is about a question from a reader named Kristi, who asks The Council about her spiritual journey. She says it’s almost like she has a constant magnetic pull to the spiritual realm and when she tries to distance herself from spirit, she ends up right back at it.

The Council asks why she’d want to distance herself from spirit? Her spirit connection reminds her of who she truly is, which is part of why she came into this lifetime. It’s very much a part of Kristi’s life in this incarnation because in so many other lifetimes she’s walked the spiritual path and believed in love and compassion, which is what she came to bring into her current lifetime.

The Council advises daily meditation and for Kristi to read all the books she can find on spiritual channels because she has the ability to channel spirit if she wants to.

The Councils says it’s wonderful that Kristi feels this spiritual influence in her life and asks her to feel in what direction it’s pulling her. This is exactly what she wanted to experience in this lifetime. Don’t pull away from spirit. This journey can take her to many different places an help her meet many people who will be attracted to her vibration.

Kristi didn’t plan in spirit which way she wanted this spiritual pull to take her. She only knew that she wanted to be deeply connected to the spiritual realm.

The Council advises Kristi to use her imagination to visualize herself in many different situations and see what feels best to her and follow this direction. Begin with small steps. Each step will bring her to another and another and she’ll fulfill what she has planned for this lifetime. She wanted the excitement of being on a spiritual path and to discover her journey as she moves along her path.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Kristi and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Looking for a Meaningful Relationship

This post is about questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who says she’d really like a long-term, profoundly deep relationship. She also asks about a former male best friend who currently refuses to communicate with her, and she wants to know if they’re working through any past life experiences.

Sarah says she’s been trying to deny her desire for a relationship because she feels the best way to develop a healthy love is to go into a situation with someone without the expectation of falling in love.

The Council suggests that Sarah first think of the love she’s felt from other people and appreciate that. Then they suggest she write in great detail about the relationship she desires. The more detailed she can be will make it more likely she’ll attract this relationship to her. Focus on being ready for a relationship and that it’s okay to want it. Think about what she’s willing to bring to this relationship and what is her partner bringing? The Council says if Sarah is denying the relationship she desires, she’ll have difficulty manifesting it.

Sarah wonders if her desire to be an independent person is going against her desire to have a partner.  The Council feels Sarah has achieved independence and they don’t see her loosing herself in a relationship.

Sarah also asks about a male best friend who’s been in her life on and off for a long time. He’s been in love with her and multiple times she’s tried to be with him, but ended up running away. He currently refuses to have anything to do with her and this makes her very sad. This sadness and the longing seems out of proportion for the relationship they’ve had, even though she says she hasn’t been in love with him. Sarah’s curious if there’s something in their past lives that they’re working through.

The Council says we are all here to show love and compassion, and you learn about compassion by allowing yourself to feel what another person is feeling. Can Sarah understand how this man can feel abandoned, not good enough, taken advantage of, and foolish? Think about how this might feel for him. As Sarah understands these feelings, she can try to build a friendship with this man by speaking about her new understanding. The Council doesn’t feel it’s necessary to go into any past lives they’ve shared together.

Sarah asks if she should release this man permanently so he can have a life without the pain of her being in it (but not as his partner). The Council says when Sarah can speak with kindness about her new understanding of this man and how that makes her feel, she can try to speak with him about it. The heavy energy of not feeling wanted can lift and she can start a new kind of relationship with him. She doesn’t have to release this person from her life. They can be in each other’s lives, but differently than before.

Sarah asks what The Council sees for this relationship in the future. And The Council says that’s up to the two of them and what they wish to create. She should do the inner work of imagining how he feels when he realizes she doesn’t love him the way he loves her. As she understands this and continues to send love to herself and to him, things can begin to change.

Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Sarah and the rest of us regarding relationships, and let us know what you’re feeling.

How to Communicate with Autistic People

In this post a reader named EG asks The Council for advice on how to communicate with people who have Autism, after reading one of our previous posts on Autism.

The Council says to show these people love, compassion, and joy. Speak to them through your mind. In the beginning, if they allow you to touch them, it’s very helpful to reach out and touch their arm or their shoulder while communicating with them. When they’re feeling safe with you they’ll let you touch them.

When speaking with Autistic people it’s helpful for you to form pictures in your mind of what you are trying to communicate.

Meditation will raise your vibration and give you the support you’re looking for when communicating with Autistic people.

Autistic people are very wise and quick to pick up on your feelings. Surround yourself with the happiest, most loving vibration you can while you’re around people who have Autism.

EG closes by saying they guess they aren’t evolved enough to communicate with Autistic people, but they’d still like to try. And The Council laughs and replies that EG is more evolved than they believe.

Listen to our entire 3-minute conversation with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for EG and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel.

Choosing Childhood Abuse

This post answers questions from a reader named, Marie, who’s had an abusive childhood. She asks The Council if a soul can choose a life of pain and suffering, because she can’t believe she’s chosen this for herself. Marie also asks about a strained relationship with her brother in response to our post, What’s is the Purpose of a Decade’s-long Strained Relationship with a Twin Brother.

The Council says when you (in spirit) choose a particularly challenging life experience, you don’t think it will be horrible. In spirit you think you’ll be experiencing this difficulty because you’re not feeling your connection to who you truly are as a spiritual being.

When you’re living a painful physical reality it’s because you’re not fulfilling your purpose in this lifetime, which is to experience this difficulty and then turn it around. You have called in this difficult experience for one reason: to change it.

The purpose of this difficulty is to think how much more you are than a human being in a physical body. It’s to turn your thoughts toward love, no matter what you’re experiencing. Love has the ability to change everything. We are all here for the single purpose of bringing love into our lives.

As you meditate on your situation and begin to understand it, you’re realize this difficulty isn’t a punishment you’ve created for yourself or that others are putting you through. You’ve chosen this experience to change it.

Some souls choose to experience difficult emotions in this lifetime. They call in other souls that have agreed to abuse them, and they have agreed to do this only out of love so you can have this experience and get on with your purpose, which is to change your experience to something better.

Sometimes we pick difficult challenges to teach people around us to see it and perhaps change, or for people to see what we’re going through and have compassion for us. You are awakening in other spirits the vibration of love and compassion because you’ve experienced this.

Marie says her mother was able to show love to her brother and concludes her mother must have agreed with her to show her rejection as part of her life experience. And The Council asks Marie what she’s learned from this? Has she learned not to reject other people and realize she deserves more? Move forward on your path, show love, and do good deeds for yourself and others. Stop the hurting and always look forward to doing good.

Marie says she can’t understand how violence to a child can raise consciousness and lead to an experience of love. And The Council says as she looks at what she’s gone through hasn’t she expanded, even a little bit, and learned how to move forward. The violence has served it’s purpose. You have expanded, even if you don’t think so right now.

On a different subject Marie says she’s tried for a long time to make a better relationship with her brother, but he remains distant. The Council says contact with Marie can bring up difficult memories of the past for her brother. He’s choosing to shield himself from these heavy memories for now.

The Council says changing the way Marie sees her relationship with her brother can make it less painful. He’s not in the same place as Marie and isn’t looking to question his past so much. To get past this, send him the pink vibration of love. As he allows himself to take this in, your relationship will change.

The Council asks Marie if she’s ready to let go of the abuse she’s gone through? Now look forward. What kind of life do you want to create? As long as you focus on the abuse, you won’t move forward and create a new life with caring and love.

Learn from what you’ve come through. Change the way you see your life experience. Think about how this has enlightened you and taught the people who went through this with you what they needed to learn. Create the life you desire. Go into the vibration of love, joy, and happiness and think about this more and more.

You are a brave soul and have come through a lot. Now you are the creator of the rest of your life experience. Meditate on this information repeatedly. Eventually a little light bulb will go off and the understanding will occur on a very deep level and the healing will happen.

Marie needs to know that she’s gone through what she (in spirit) wanted to experience. It’s not her job to think about how everyone else handled it. The abuse didn’t happen because there was something lacking in her. It was set up in spirit for her to experience in her physical reality and now it’s over. Now it’s Marie’s turn to create the rest of her life.

Listen to our entire 18-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Marie and the rest of us on this important subject of why we choose in spirit to experience abuse in our physical life, and let us know your feelings on the subject.

A Mother-Daughter Relationship – Past and Present Lives

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Merry, who says she’s always had a tumultuous relationship with her mother and asks The Council to shed light on the relationships they’ve shared in other lifetimes. 

The Council begins by saying Merry and her mother had very good relationships in other lifetimes and they remind her when the lifetime we share with a person is challenging, it’s not always considered a bad lifetime.

The Council says Merry and her mother were mother and daughter in a lifetime around the 1400s and were very close. At that time there were witch hunts and because her mother was good at making medicines for people someone accused her of being a witch. When this happened her mother tried to hide her daughter, but she was found and was drowned as the child of a witch, and her mother was locked in a cell for the rest of her life.

Merry and her mother agreed in spirit to return in their present lifetime, but her mother brought the memories of this previous lifetime with her. Instead of working with Merry to have a wonderful life, she turned off her emotions because she was afraid Merry would be taken away again. The reason Merry feels coldness from her mother is that her mother was afraid of being connected to her.

When Bob asked if there was a way to break down these barriers Merry feels with her mother, The Council said it would be difficult, but she should try to show her mother love and help her with everyday challenges. Love conquers everything. Show her mother signs of love in the littlest thing she does and the barrier Merry feels will begin to change. The purpose of this lifetime is to figure out ways to get close.

Merry says her mother is kind of her best friend, but her role as Merry’s mother ended when her brother was born. The Council says if Merry feels her connection with her mother now is one of being friends, can she learn to appreciate this? Can Merry see how her mother needs her as a friend? As Merry begins to appreciate this friendship the relationship will be able to develop further.

The Council says because both Merry and her mother were trying to make this lifetime work, they brought in a lot of fears that they are trying to overcome. Merry can meditate on what she’s gone through. She is strong. By asking about these challenges Merry knows there is more to what she’s experiencing in this lifetime. This shows she’s on the right path because a part of her that’s questioning knows there’s more and wants the answer. This is Merry’s connection to her higher self and is her spirit trying to get her to understand what The Council is talking about. Now, going forward, how does she handle things?

The Counsel closes by saying that through understanding what her mother has gone through and through meditation Merry can show her mother more compassion and more love, and when she can do this her situation must change.

Listen to our entire 17-minute session on Merry’s question about her relationship with her mother to hear all The Council’s guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Pain – A Spiritual Perspective

In this post we look at The Council’s spiritual point of view on the subject of human pain. The post was inspired by two questions about pain from two different readers. Robert’s question is a philosophical one about the purpose for pain in our human experience. And Lee Ann’s question is a personal one about a spiritual agreement she thinks she made to ‘take on’ the emotional pain of other people.

Robert’s Question – The Purpose of Pain

If you’re open to the idea there’s a spiritual explanation for things that happen in your human experience, sooner or later you’re likely to wonder what the spiritual explanation is for pain that might be in your life or other peoples’ lives. Robert concludes pain is an anchoring tool that serves the purpose of slowing down your spiritual vibration enough for you to “embody the human density and to have a flesh body,” and he asks The Council’s opinion about this.

“We would like to say here… how many spirits do you think would want to come back and experience this life in the physical body if they knew they had to have pain to anchor themselves into that physical body?

“There is nowhere where we want to come into this physical experience and suffer, and be in pain, and have many, many challenging experiences. It was our belief to come in to make things lighter… more loving, no matter what situation you are in.

“There was never a belief that you must have pain to anchor yourself into a body.

“The spirit decides when to enter [and] when to leave the body; and what its tool is… what its vibration is… is to be in the vibration of love, and happiness, and compassion.

“And there is nowhere where we would want to experience pain, or anyone else’s pain, because that would not help anyone, anywhere, ever.”

—The Council
