This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Mariette, who started a website around a year ago as a dream to empower others with flower essences, energy healing, and counseling. She’s not really happy in her full-time job and instead wants to work helping others, but she’s having trust issues.
The Council says trusting in herself is something she’s picked as a challenge and that she needs to believe more in herself and have the courage to move forward with what Mariette feels is her desire.
The Council says it’s always when our path in life is close to changing that our fear will come to the surface and that’s what’s currently sabotaging Mariette. Will she be able to move beyond this fear and go on to her desired career? Her higher self is planning ways to get her where she wants to go. To get through the void she’s experiencing she needs to focus on what she desires. This will bring her past her fears. The Council sees she’d be very successful at this if she tries.
The Council doesn’t see a need to pause at this time. While the fear is from many experiences Mariette has had in other lifetimes, they feel focusing on this wouldn’t be productive. Instead they recommend focusing on how beautiful her life will be when she’s doing what she desires.
The Council says there isn’t a reason why Mariette has to stay in a job she’s not happy with. They recommend taking the chance and leaving to fully focus on what she wants.
The Council suggests as she moves forward with this part of her life, trust her feelings about what flower essences she thinks a person would need, even if it’s not in the books she’s reading. This will increase Mariette’s intuition.
Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council on Mariette’s questions to fully appreciate all their guidance, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by follow-up questions from Vacha who has been in an abusive marriage and has moved back to India with her parents. This is Vacha’s second marriage and both husbands were physically abusive.
The Council asks Vacha if there’s any question in her mind that she did the right thing when she left her husband. They imagine if you’re in an abusive situation, you’d feel comfortable that you had the power and the knowledge how to get out of this relationship.
Vacha asks The Council if she has any karmic accounts with her two husbands, and The Council says this in not the case.
The Council asks Vacha if she sees a pattern in why she chose these two abusive marriages. These have been lessons about awareness. The signs of abuse were there before each marriage. What has Vacha learned from these relationships? The Council says if Vacha doesn’t start asking herself this question, she will bring another abusive relationship. She has created this situation so she would learn about awareness, self-worth, courage, and how to create what you want.
Vacha asks if The Council sees her in a good relationship in the future. And The Council says she must do the work they describe if she wants a good relationship. Let go of the fear of what she’s experienced and let go of the question if there’s someone better for her. Focus on herself and find within the strength to believe she deserves better. Visualize a better life. Think of the abusiveness as a learning lesson and then let it go.
Vacha asks if there’s a chance she planned to have these abusive relationships before coming into this world, and The Council says definitely.
The Council says Vacha needed to fail in these two marriages in order to see what she wanted to learn. And she’s right on track; there’s nothing wrong here.

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Kate who says she has no idea what her purpose on Earth is, which causes her much anxiety. She can’t seem to relax and enjoy being here.
The Council says Kate needs to meditate and needs to perform some grounding exercises to bring her more into this reality. Any meditation will do. Walking outside on grass or dirt in her bare feet will help her ground and pull in the energy of the Earth. Dancing will also help ground her.
Kate says she’s concerned about her future because she believes she’s unable to escape her bad habits and faults when it comes to work situations. The Council says there are never any bad choices, just choices that will bring you quickly to where you want to go, or choices that will take you a longer roundabout route.
The Council asks Kate what she’s learning? If she’s feeling stuck, what would make her feel unstuck? The Council recommends watching other people live their lives, seeing how this feels to her, and deciding what she feels she would like for herself.
When Kate says she sees the possibilities in life, but doesn’t have the courage or self-discipline to pursue them, The Council points out this is a choice that Kate is making. And as long as she believes she doesn’t have the discipline to pursue these possibilities, that is what she’ll keep creating in her life. Her thoughts and beliefs are creating what she brings into her life.
The Council says of course Kate has the courage and ability to change her life and discover what she wants because she is more spirit than she knows, with limitless power, understanding, and love to create what she wants. With meditation her beliefs will begin to change, the courage to try many things will come, and the feeling of being stuck will gradually decrease.
In past lives Kate’s desires were taken away and it’s difficult in this life to believe there aren’t authority figures that will put her down. But that was then and this is now, and she’s here to see how much she can create and take her life in the direction she wants. Meditation will give her clarity. She will feel the answers more than think them. And she will grow and know which direction she wishes to take her life.
Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council to hear all their answers for Kate and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a reader named Tracey who asks The Council, after reading our post about Beth’s abortions, if the soul of the child she recently miscarried was either the same soul she aborted many years ago, or if it was the soul of her present son, because he’s always so insecure when he’s not with Tracey.
The Council doesn’t see that either of these souls was the soul she recently miscarried. The say it was a soul who wanted the experience of being in a human body, but not having to complete an entire lifetime. In the rest of this session The Council gives Tracey advice on her son.
The Council says Tracey’s son will be working through many abandonment issues in this lifetime and they suggest showing him a lot of patience, love, and reassurance. When he was in spirit he realized there were some fears he wanted to experience and then experience the strength within the fear when he’s given love.
The Council also sees Tracey’s son will need a lot of confidence in this lifetime and they suggest giving him a lot of praise and following through on things Tracey says she will do concerning her son.
The Council suggest Tracey buy her son children’s books on angels and spirits, and books on how we are here in this lifetime always looking for love and showing love. And they say a good place to start is books by the spiritual healer, Louise Hay.
Tracey’s son wanted to experience courage, independence, and fearlessness in this lifetime and give these emotions to others. He wants to experience the fears first, have the reassurance from Tracey, and then start to believe in these assurances and knowing he is safe. Tracey should always point out to her son that whatever he’s afraid of, there is love in it, and to search for this love with him.
Listen to the entire 7-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Tracey, her son, and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a follow-up question from a reader named Jolanda who wrote to us a few months ago about whether she should leave her abusive husband, and The Council advised her that she should leave because her husband wouldn’t change. They also said she should leave for the sake of her children. Jolanda says she’s spent these months trying to find a solution other than leaving, but she now sees her situation isn’t likely to get any better.
The Council says staying with her husband isn’t the direction she wanted to go in and they ask Jolanda not to give up hope on what she can create for herself. They ask if she believes she deserves better, and they say if she’s unable to live with this difficulty there’s another path to happiness. They suggest she look for the courage to pursue this happiness, and they add there’s no rush. Jolanda will get where she wants when she’s more comfortable within herself and researched how she’ll make her life work without being with her husband. She’s still in the beginning stage.
Jolanda says she thought she’d be married for the rest of her life and can barely imagine living without her husband. And The Council asks how she expects to change this situation when she’s unable to imagine the change.
The Council reminds Jolanda that to create a better situation she needs to continually focus on what she desires. If she goes through this situation day after day and doesn’t focus on what she desires because it’s difficult to see a better way, her situation will remain unchanged.
The Council says if Jolanda is unable to find it in her heart to leave her husband, the lesson here is still finding courage. While she is still in this relationship she doesn’t have to take abuse, which she has created, from her husband. Put herself and her children first. Learn to be protected.
The Council sees Jolanda has a lot of work to get to the point where she can focus on how she’d like to live her life. The lesson can be learned, but instead of feeling hopeless she needs to change her thinking. However long this takes, she’ll find a way to do this.
What can she do to find happiness for herself and her children while she remains in this situation? When she goes into a vibration of happiness, the abusive vibration will not match her happiness and won’t continue to bother her. Eventually it will stop.
The Council says Jolanda needs to take her focus off how horrible her situation is and change her thoughts. It’s her spiritual job right now to find a way to bring the love and happiness into her home.
The Council finishes with a reminder there’s nothing more powerful than your higher self. Think of yourself as a great spirit and warrior that has picked a tremendous challenge to go through, and you knew you could do this. There isn’t anything more powerful than your higher self. Pay attention to this part of you. Use the tools you’ve been given and keep focusing on the life you desire.
Listen to our entire 16-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all of their guidance for Jolanda and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.
This post is inspired by a question from Darla, who says she’s had psychic experiences her entire life and has always felt very spiritually connected. But she struggles with the anxiety these psychic experiences cause and asks The Council if she was psychic in other lifetimes.
The Council says when people begin to tap into their psychic ability, in some cases it causes anxiety and these people imagine they’ve done something wrong in a past life and are afraid. But The Council says your psychic ability is part of who you really are and everyone has these abilities.
In a lifetime in Germany The Council says Darla had the ability to hold objects like jewelry in her hands and receive psychic information for people from these objects. (In our session they refer to this as Kinesiology; we suspect a more appropriate term is Psychometry.) And they say Darla also had the ability in that lifetime to see a person’s problems and the guidance that benefited them.
The Council says because Darla helped people with her psychic ability in another lifetime, this ability is appearing to her again in this lifetime. And they suggest she read books on mediums and begin to study auras. She brought this psychic ability into her life again so she could help herself and others.
The Council doesn’t see a deep rooted fear that Darla is asking about. Instead they see this fear as something in Darla’s present life and it stems from a lack of familiarity with her psychic perceptions. They advise her to play more with her psychic ability and they predict this fear will disappear.
The Council says Darla wants to discover more about herself in this lifetime than what she experiences in normal day to day physical living. In spirit she thought it would be fun to face fearful situations in her life and see if she could find the courage to turn this fear around. These are the reasons she decided to bring this psychic ability into this lifetime, and The Council says she’ll be able to do this.
Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to get all their guidance for Darla and the rest of us.
This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Jolanda who says it’s taken her a long time to realize her husband (who is the father and step-father of their children) is verbally and emotionally abusive to her and their stepchildren.
Jolanda asks if she’s right to stay with her husband and The Council says there was a pre-birth agreement they would come together in this lifetime. They see previous lifetimes where Jolanda had experienced a lack of courage and in this lifetime she desires to learn to be a protector of herself and her children. The Council adds that her children are part of this agreement and it’s their purpose to push Jolanda to become the protector she wants to be.
The Council asks if Jolanda feels it’s safe for her children to be around her husband, or is it time to move on to protect them. The Council says these questions are there to push her in the direction she wants to go. And they add Jolanda doesn’t need to grow any more to realize the relationship with her husband is an abusive one.
The Council says Jolanda’s spirit wants to experience the other side of the coin – the kind of partner she’d feel unconditional love with and feel her children are safe, growing, and happy. They say it’s her choice and the lesson to protect herself and her children is right in front of her.
Jolanda says it’s difficult to be yelled at, blamed, ignored, and devalued by someone who means the world to her. And The Council asks if she believes by staying in this relationship she’ll acquire the strength she needs and the love she wants.
The Council advises Jolanda to love herself and her children and put herself on a path where she experiences this, and to picture herself as strong and happy, having a loving partner and happy children.
The Council says if Jolanda stays in this relationship it will stay the way it is. This is the way she created this relationship – to stay this way until she finds the strength to change it.
Listen to the entire 11-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Jolanda.
This post is inspired by a comment from A. who describes her situation as similar to L in the post, “Should I Get Pregnant After My Abortion?” A. says she never expected to have an unplanned pregnancy because she was on birth control for 17 years. But she switched to a natural contraceptive for health reasons, got pregnant, and felt an abortion was her only choice. Her boyfriend didn’t want the child, and having it on her own would be difficult.
She wondered why this happened, and she asks The Council if her sense the pregnancy would miscarry if she didn’t abort was accurate. She couldn’t continue without the support of her partner, and decided with love to abort.
The Council says A.’s decision made with the feeling of love is the right way to go, and that a miscarriage down the road was not her plan. They see she got together with this partner and agreed spiritually to experience this pregnancy, and then experience making a decision on what to do about it independently.
Her partner played his part by not treating A. as lovingly as he did at first, and having her realize she’d be raising this child alone. Wanting to go through the experience of getting pregnant and not relying on another person’s opinion on what to do, A. went with her feeling of love and chose to abort.
In her past lives The Council says A. made a lot of decisions to please other people, or just take their advice. In this lifetime A. wants to become more independent. The pregnancy was planned by her, her partner, and the child (who would have come if A. chose to keep the baby), but knowing she’d have to raise the child alone she was courageous enough to abort.
The Council asks A. to look at the situation she’s gone through with her partner and see what can be learned in love through this. His situation was to have the courage to say he didn’t want to go forward with the pregnancy. If both were unable to fulfill what they wanted, the outcome would have been very different. Both experienced something they ultimately wanted, and The Council sees this as growth for them.
The Council congratulates both A. and her partner and say it’s not always easy to accomplish what’s intended. This was a good outcome, which The Council hopes will bring them much love and happiness. Listen to the entire 9-minute session below to get the full meaning. Let us know what you think.
While you believe there is great courage
In swimming up steam against the flow,
When you allow yourself to go downstream with the current,
Life can be much more satisfying.
