Was There a Soul Contract Between Me and My Cat, Caesar, Who Passed Recently?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Christine, whose loved cat, Caesar, unexpectedly passed away recently and she’s in shock.

The Council says when it’s time for an animal to pass over (what some of us think of as dying), the animal knows it’s their time, and often it’s easier for them to pass when no one is around. This is what The Council sees happened to Caesar.

The Council says even though Christine’s in great shock, they ask if she’s able to imagine that Caesar’s in a beautiful place with other animals and other humans, and he’s completely happy.

The Council advises Christine to stay in the wonderful memories she has when she was around Caesar, and reminds her Caesar’s spirit is still around her. She can ask for signs that Caesar is around and she’ll receive these signs. The love between Caesar and Christine will never die and she can always touch into this love.

The Council says when it’s time for Christine to return to spirit, there’ll be people and animals she knows in spirit to greet her, and The Council reminds Christine there’s a great happiness when everyone is together again in spirit.

Christine had just returned from a great holiday and picked up Caesar at his sitter’s house. The next night Caesar walked up to Christine she had the thought to give him a lot of attention. She told Caesar how much she loved him and one day they’d all be together in spirit with all the other pets he and Christine lived with. The next day Caesar passed, and The Council commented that it was wonderful she was able to do this, and Caesar was able to hear it and understand it.

Christine asks The Council how we can know our fur babies who have passed are still with us? The Council says with your mind you can go to a quiet place and speak with your cat and ask them for signs they’re close by. Your cat will come to you in a way you’ll understand that it’s there.

Christine asks The Council if our animals have a soul contract with us? The Council says sometimes they do. Christine and Caesar have a soul contract and The Council feels they’ll be together again.

Sometimes an animal will come into many lifetimes with you to help you go through the different phases of being with an animal – learning what the animal can teach you and what you can teach the animal. Sometimes an animal will come into your life because you just need an animal. When you’re at the point in your life when this lesson is needed, an animal will show up in your life.

Why Did My Twin Flame Pass On?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, StarSeedIndigo , in response to our previous post, Twin Flames, Twin Souls, and Soulmates – What’s the Difference. She begins by discussing aspects of her friendship with her twin flame.

The Council says the similar aspect of StarSeedIndigo and her twin flame are caused by both of them originating from the same higher self. You create this situation because what you want to experience in your current lifetime, you may not do it if you believe you’re alone. When you feel there’s someone with you that has much knowledge, it helps you grow and makes it easier for you to absorb information.

StarSeedIndigo says she typically receives her answers and guidance in her dreams. Six weeks ago she dreamt that she was going to her twin flame’s funeral. The Council interprets this to mean her twin flame is preparing her for his exit.

StarSeedIndigo says she knew in the dream that her twin flame passed on (physically died) in a motorcycle accident. Seventeen days after her dream, her twin flame actually did pass on exactly like in her dream. She says since then I’ve been unable to find peace and feel my soul is in shock. I feel alone and the presence of my twin is starting to fade. He’s been communicating with her in subtle ways, but she’d like to be able to communicate with him clearly.

The Council says the fear of loosing communication with the part of your higher self who was your twin flame is a fear you’re facing. The communication between these two parts of yourself will always be there.

StarSeedIndigo asks why the soul of her twin flame decided to leave at this time and what’s the most important lesson for her from his passing?

The Council says there was an agreement in spirit that when you get to a certain part of your life where you were ready to explore the rest of your life on your own, then the twin part of you would leave. This happened because you’re ready to go forward on your own. You’re ready to explore more of the spiritual world.

There’s a confidence you wanted to feel when you were ready to go forward, and you created your twin flame to help give you this confidence. He helped you have confidence to go beyond what most people believe. When your twin flame was with you it was easier to have this confidence. Now you want to know you can move forward communicating with the higher part of you, and learn and experience more. That is why you had this experience with your twin flame.

StarSeedIndigo asks if it’s okay for her twin flame’s soul evolution if she wants to continue communicating with him?

The connection to the part of you that played your twin soul will always be available to you. Even if you create other parts of yourself that go into other realities, that twin part of you will always exist, just as every part of every lifetime you’ve experienced still exists. They are there for you to research, connect to, and ask for greater understanding of these realities. The experiences of these realities (lifetimes) is never taken away.

StarSeedIndigo asks The Council for guidance for herself on her life path?

The Council advises StarSeedIndigo to go further in her studies and her understanding of the spiritual realm. There’s also a part of her that wanted to have a lot of travel in her life. When she feels it’s time to vacation or move somewhere she feels called to, they suggest she follow this feeling. This is what she wanted to create as she was setting up this life in spirit before she were born.

How much do you want to continue acquiring knowledge and to experience things that are very different from what are considered normal? Talk about what you learn with different people and go to places where more of this is available to you. And it would be good for you to learn different modalities of healing because you have access to this energy. That is what you planned up to this point in your life.

Listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council to hear all their interesting guidance for StarSeedIndigo and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

You Are Responsible for What You Do In This Lifetime You Are Creating

Using audio playlists to publish more frequent posts

It’s been a challenge to publish posts as frequently as we’d like. The process – record a session with The Council to answer a reader’s question, transcribe the recording, study the recording and transcript, and write a post to give you an idea what the session was like and how we’re understanding the material – has been somewhat time consuming.

Now that we’ve figured out how to include in a post an audio playlist of a recorded session (if your browser supports this), we hope to publish more frequent posts that make these session recordings available without the extended written content typical of most earlier posts. As time permits it’s possible we’ll update these posts with additional written content, particularly if reader/listener comments indicate an interest in our thoughts on something in the session.

Ask The Council in-person group sessions

The session this post is devoted to is different than sessions described in earlier posts. It’s a recording of a group session. These are sessions we’ve recently begun doing with small groups of people near our home on Staten Island in New York. These meetings are hosted by someone acquainted with The Council’s teachings and is interested in helping others experience The Council in person.

A typical group session

When several new people attend one of these meetings for the first time, there’s usually some general discussion about The Council and their teachings. Otherwise there’s usually an opportunity for people to comment on material from earlier sessions and on how that material might be influencing their day to day experience. Next is a short guided meditation intended to help people be more receptive to experiencing The Council, followed by the actual session with The Council, and then some post-session discussion of people’s impressions.

During the session The Council typically opens with some discussion of a topic they feel is appropriate for the people attending, and then the session is opened up to questions from participants. For the most part we expect the playlists in these posts will only include the portion of the meeting where The Council is speaking through Cynthia and participants are responding.

This group session

The title of this post refers to the subject The Council began this session with – the idea each person is responsible for what they do in the lifetime they are creating. They emphasize you are not responsible for creating the behavior of other people; you are only responsible for your experience of other people’s behavior. This can be confusing if you’re under the impression there is little or no difference between someone’s behavior and your experience of it. But The Council says there are many ways to experience someone else’s behavior and you have the free will to choose.

At the top of the playlist below (in quotes) is the name of either the first track, the track currently playing, or the most recently played track. Just beneath that is the date and place where the session occurred. Tracks are numbered, have a title indicating a main idea on that track, and the track length in minutes and seconds. The tracks should automatically play one after the other and then begin the first track again.

Play: Click triangle (►). Pause: Click icon (||) that replaces the triangle while the recording plays. Fast Forward/Rewind: Click to the right/left of the play bar during play. Mute on/off: Click speaker icon. Volume: Click bar to the right of the speaker icon.

When a Loved One Unexpectedly Departs Physical Reality

This post is inspired by a request from Kali, who writes that her partner (father of her two young sons) didn’t physically survive a car crash a couple months ago. She adds that she can’t accept he’s gone, her pain is unbearable, she’s desperately trying to develop herself spiritually so she can connect with the love of her life, and she’d appreciate any guidance The Council can offer.

Do You Believe You are Spirit in a Physical Body?

On November 11, 2013 we did a session with The Council to see if we could get the guidance Kali requested. The Council began this session with the following comments:

“Well first we want to say he [Kali’s partner] hasn’t gone anywhere, he is just out of his physical body.

“You are stating you are desperate and trying to develop spiritually, so first we ask you to meditate on this question: Do you believe you are a spirit here, operating in this physical body? Because that is who you truly are.

“And spirit – which is light and energy – never dies; we transition. We choose to create physical bodies to come into this environment and when we are done, we leave the physical body. But there is no dying; there is no end to spirit. Is that understood?”

—The Council Continue reading

Maria’s Plan for a Great Spiritual Leap

This post is about a question Maria asked after reading a Thought for the Day from The Council titled ‘Everyone In Your Life Was Invited By You‘.

Maria explains her best friend is on his deathbed and she’s experiencing a lot of emotional pain about this. She is asking The Council if it is also with her permission that her friend is exiting her life, because she’s having difficulty understanding why she would agree to ‘loose’ him at this time and in this way.

There is Agreement

“No one comes into your life unless you invite them. Their departing your life is something that they plan along with you, so there is agreement for both of you that when it is time, when you feel you have concluded what you needed to do together, one or both [of you] exit [the physical body].

“And so, although you find this very painful, it has been discussed and planned while you were still in the spirit world.”

The Feeling Of Leaving Your Body For The Last Time

Many of you wonder:
What does it feel like
when you finally leave your body?

We ask you to close your eyes
and imagine yourself wearing a heavy snow suit.
Pay attention to what this feels like.

Now imagine stepping out of this snow suit,
finding yourself standing in the most beautiful light.
Feel this light all around you.

As you stand in this light
imagine yourself filling up
with the most incredible feelings
of Joy and love.

As you experience this,
from within this light
come many of your loved ones
that have passed before you.

They are here
to welcome you home.

This is what it feels like
to finally leave your body.

—The Council

After each life,
As you remove your outer garments
(Your personality and your physical body).

What is left
Is love and light.

When you leave your physical body
(What you consider Death)
You do not loose any part of who you really are.

You will experience great joy knowing you still exist.

You are still you,
Only light-er.

—The Council 🙂
