Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

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
