How Can I Overcome Stage Fright With My Dancing Hobby?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Bluestar Child.

Bluestar Child: I want to know why I’m in a toxic circle for so many years with my dancing hobby. I don’t know why I have so many emotional problems with it. All my life dancing has been my biggest hobby. It’s made me feel happy, free, and alive when I dance just for myself or with other students, and I’m not bad at all.

Council: And that’s a wonderful thing. You’re doing something, whether it’s for work or a hobby, if it brings you pleasure, if it makes you feel good, that is a wonderful thing. And you’re on the right path

Bluestar Child: But I stopped going to classes many times because I have a stage phobia and I hate dancing in front of an audience. It makes me anxious, I get mentally and emotionally blocked, my mind goes blank, and I forget the choreography.

Council: And so at this point in your reality you’re aware enough of these feelings, and so we’d ask you to ask yourself, if you feel this way then why do you do it? Is there a person with a gun to your head? Are they going to throw you into a cell if you don’t perform in front of an audience?

It’s important to know how you feel and to follow your feelings because your feelings come from your higher self, which is you. And so your feelings are trying to tell you that you love dancing. It’s giving you that answer, but you don’t like doing it in front of an audience. And so your higher self, again which is you, is telling you that you don’t need to do it this way. So ask yourself, why do you force yourself to do it?

You’re in a place in this reality where you’ll create your future. You have choices. You are free to make decisions that make you happy. Always go for the happy feeling. That is your guidance.

Bluestar Child: Do I have past lives that are affecting me in developing my hobby?

Council: There was one particular life in India with dancing that you would do with other women and you’d also perform on your own. At the age of no more than 25 years old the people that owned you or took care of you would take the girls that reached that age and no longer have them dance. And either they would make them be concubines or they would kill them. And so there’s a subconscious memory you have of when you don’t dance, when that time is up and you don’t do what they ask, you’ll then lose your life. And that’s where your fear comes from.

Bluestar Child: Does my problem come from the lack of self-esteem as a woman from my childhood in this current lifetime?

Council: Not at all. You are working through that.

Bluestar Child: Although my teachers know about my problem dancing in public, they ask me or pressure me to dance at galas and events, even if they have nothing to do with my classes, and always for free.

Council: Do you see the connection, how in this past life you’d be told to dance, whether you wanted to or not? You weren’t paid for it. This was just something you had to do. And so this time you’re trying to find another way to handle your situation and enjoy the dancing, but have the choice of whether you want to perform in front of an audience or not, and have a good ending for you, have a good ending to this problem, to this fear, and to move on.

Bluestar Child: They never want to pay me for this job and it seems to me that they abuse me.

Council: Ahh, bingo, another connection with your past life. Do you see it now?

Bluestar Child: And when I tell them, no, that causes problems for me, and my teachers, and with the other students. Is what I’m doing correct, or should I perform in front of an audience?

Council: We feel you know this answer, but we tell you if it’s not bringing you happiness, then dancing for an audience isn’t correct, and that you have the ability to change how you handle this. You have a choice.

Bluestar Child: I’m stressed and I don’t know how to handle this situation that causes me suffering. And since I don’t know how to solve it in another way, in the end I always end up leaving classes to avoid having to dance in public.

I feel very attached, in particular, to Arabic belly dancing…

Council: Ahh, yes.

Bluestar Child: …and Egypt, and I feel that I’ve already danced this dance in another life. I’d like to know if this is the case, or why I have this deep feeling since I learned about this dance.

Council: This is because you have done it before and you did have pleasure from it. And you have pleasure, you’ve created it again in this reality where this dance would bring you joy. And so we say, do it, but do it only for yourself if that’s what gives you joy.

Bluestar Child: I’d like to know how I can approach ancestral belly dance for spiritual development because I feel that I have a spiritual mission to fulfill with it, but I don’t know what it is or how to achieve it.

Council: So what you’d do here would be to dance, to sit and meditate after you dance, or even meditate before you dance, and ask for the feeling, ask for the visions of how you had it before and what you loved about it. And you’ll link into this other life and then when you decide in your current reality to handle the situation your way, the joy you get from this dancing will increase a hundredfold and you will find other ways to use this dancing.

So you don’t have to know how this will happen now, but with the meditation and using your imagination, what would that have been like in India, what would that have been like in Rome, what would that have been like in Egypt, When you dance and you ask for this, the answers will come. And why the answers will come is because this dancing brings you joy. When it brings you joy, the answers will come.

Remember to have fun on this journey that you’ve created for yourself, to have fun with the spirits around you that you’ve welcomed into your life, and always show kindness, and love, and compassion.

What Path Should I Pursue This Lifetime?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Cristiana, who needs some guidance on which path she should pursue in this lifetime. I have lots of skills and interests and therefore many options, or so I think. I’m also very scatterbrained and feel my life is very fragmented in a kaleidoscopic kind of way.

The Council says this kaleidoscope effect is because you brought talents into your current life that you had from other lifetimes. What you brought in to explore this time was an interest in writing, painting, dancing, and the healing arts, whether it be mainstream healing or alternative healing.

Because you brought in so many interests, as your life progresses you’d see which interest drew you to it. Any of these fields would be good for you to start playing around in. You’ve done all of these interests in other lifetimes and were very good at them. If you moved forward with any of these in this lifetime you’d be very successful and enjoy it.

Cristiana says: Which direction should I channel my energy and focus into? For a long time I’ve been dreaming about getting in touch with my artistic side, but it’s not my only calling. I feel pulled toward many activities. I wonder if artistic expression is something I should take seriously, or if it’s just meant to be a hobby. Is there some work from past lives I’m supposed to pursue?

The Council says there’s nothing you’re supposed to pursue. You wanted the choice to do many things that you enjoy. You may want to experience one or all of the interests you’ve brought into this life. Go with whatever you feel drawn to. You also had a great interest in running and exercising.

Start slowly and go into each interest following your feelings. After you done it for a while you may love it, or had enough of it and then you can move on. Now you know what you’ve brought in to explore in this life.

Listen to the entire 3-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Cristiana and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question in one of the Comment text boxes located toward the bottom of most of our blog pages.

What Is My Family’s Purpose In This Lifetime?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who asked The Council a few years ago about an abortion she was thinking of having and if the soul of the unborn fetus would return to her in a future pregnancy. She had her daughter in October 2020 and she thinks it’s the same soul and The Council agrees with her.

The Council says this birth will produce a very interesting life. If you’re not practicing the arts yet, you will. Your daughter needs to be taught music, dancing, and art from an early age. You, your husband, and your daughter should all find interest in the arts because you’ve done this in other lifetimes.

Eventually you’ll find a way to heal with music. You’ve all had separate lives as well as lives together where you filled the need to feel loved and feel important through the arts. In your current lifetime you’ve come together to develop all of this and share it with each other. Your daughter should be exposed to the arts and you and your husband should do this also.

The Council says while practicing the arts it’s a good idea to discuss with each other how you feel and how you got the idea to create what you are creating. This will open you to more creativity within each of you.

Sarah says she’s no longer finding purpose in her current profession and she’s feeling the pull of something much larger and far-reaching. The Council says the pull is to get started on an artistic path. When you find fulfillment in this, your current job won’t have such a negative feeling because you’ll allow this new path to be accepted and come in.

Sarah feels she and her husband have lived many lives together and he and I are supposed to do whatever this big thing is together. The Council agrees with Sarah about her past lives with her husband. This big purpose all three of you are supposed to do together was agreed upon in spirit before you were born and this is where your focus should be right now.

Sarah says she’s experienced severe arthritis for the last two years and I’m hoping this experience has run its course and taught me what it needed to. I’m curious if it has anything to do with what’s ahead.

The Council says in a past life in the early 1800s you had a form of arthritis where your fingers were crooked and you were unable to do much with your hands. In that life you always wished to find a way to heal this condition and experience it in a way that wasn’t so difficult.

In your current life, you’ve created a short span of time to experience this problem, but not on such a deep level. On your new path with music and the arts, that will ease your arthritis considerably and you’ll be able to move on. If your arthritis doesn’t totally disappear, and this is entirely up to you, it will be much better than it was.

The Council closes by thanking us for being able to take this information and have so many people be open to it, and get understanding from it, and experience relief from what another spirit has gone through.

Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Sarah and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question.

Overcoming Challenges, and Purpose in this Lifetime

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.
