Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

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.

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
