Have My Past Lives Influenced My Suffering in My Current Life?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari, who asks which of her past lives has influenced her suffering in her current life?

The Council says you wished to have a life where you could learn from the suffering in a past life. The one big past life we see affecting your current life was when you were Polish and were put into Nazi concentration camps.

In these camps you saw much suffering. You tried to help the people, but you weren’t successful. In that particular lifetime you were overwhelmed and depressed from seeing the suffering around you. You didn’t want to continue living because you were concerned you were unable to help anyone else.

In your current life you wanted to bring in all the emotions you went through and all the suffering you saw in that past life in the concentration camps so you could understand, on a much smaller level, what these people felt. You wanted to have that feeling so you could try to heal yourself while you were going through what these people went through in that life. Because you were unable to help these people and you felt you didn’t grow and you weren’t supportive in that life, you chose to go through emotions where you’d have suffering and more control in the healing of it.

This is the experience you wanted to have in your current lifetime. You want to do everything in this lifetime to heal your depression and the physical infirmities and to have more understanding and compassion for yourself as you go through this.

In that past life you had lots of compassion and a lot of feeling for these people that were suffering. And in that life you always had the hope that maybe you’d get out of the camps and maybe these people would survive. You had hope. In your current life you want to find that hope again, but have it for yourself.

Now you’re experiencing the other side of the coin. On this level, when you go through all the things you go through, do you understand how it makes you feel? What can you do, in any small way, to change your experience for the better rather than stay in it? Do you grab onto the hope you had in that past life and brought with you into your current life? Are you using this hope? Are you learning about healing with your mind and with energy? What are you doing to help yourself? This is the experience you wanted.

Know that you have the ability to heal yourself. We ask you to find the hope and don’t give up. You didn’t give up in the past life in the concentration camps, which was a tremendous thing. In your current life, because you’re going through similar things, the hope you’re supposed to have is for you. Your challenge is to have confidence in yourself and know that you are the healer and you are the creator in your life. Don’t stay in a state of hopelessness. Do everything you can, even in the smallest ways, to begin helping yourself, and you will see things change for the better.

Begin with the chakra breathing. Read books on spirit. Read books on life after life and life between lives to get ideas about how you planned your life. Know that you set all of this up. In spirit you were sure you’d be able to change your depression. We want to tell you that you can. Try and feel the courage you had in the concentration camps. Try and feel the love you had for all those people and yourself in that lifetime, and how you willed yourself to get through it and help everyone else. You can change your current life. You can turn it around. It’s not hopeless. You didn’t plan for a hopeless life.

Why Would I Choose This Life and How Can I Have Hope?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari, who wonders why she’d choose the life she’s living and how she can have hope? Mari says, I had a very unhappy childhood. I’ve been depressed all my life and I discovered I wasn’t able to practice a profession I prepared for because of a cognitive impairment, which could be due to the long-lasting depression. I’m currently working in an unfulfilling job. I’m on medication that isn’t working after trying many. I’m unhappy and feel trapped in my marriage. I don’t have many friends or much support except for mental health professionals. Sometimes life seems like it’s too much. Can you advise what to do? It just seems so hopeless.

The Council says for you, because of your depression and hopeless feeling, we’d suggest reading the three Emmanuel books by Pat Rodegast and Ask And It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks. This will lighten your vibration a little.

We feel the depression you’re going through can be changed if you learn to do the chakra breathing we recommend in other posts, learn to meditate, and start reading more spiritual books. Do these every day. We feel that in time when you start to understand who you truly are as a spiritual being and what you can create, your depression will lessen and in time you won’t need the medication you’ve been taking. But you must take the step of working on yourself first.

Find thoughts that make you happy, even if you make these thoughts up and they haven’t really happened, but they are thoughts of things you want to happen. This will lighten your vibration and you’ll see, as you feel lighter and lighter, your life will begin to change for the better.

We see what you’ve created is finding another form of employment that would ideally be outside and more with nature, either working on a farm or in a nursery. If that isn’t possible, maybe working in a plant store. Be around nature. For you, walking barefoot in water would help. All of this will change how you feel. It will help your career and your marriage.

What keeps you down is the looking outward. You think the marriage and the job isn’t what you want, but it is what you want. And it will be more of what you want if you work on yourself with your good thoughts, meditation, chakra breathing, and reading the spiritual books. This will begin to turn your life around and turn it into more of what you want.


Listen to the entire 4-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Mari and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it. Unfortunately the the quality of this recording and the recording in the next post isn’t up to our usual standards. We apologize for this and we hope to avoid this situation in the future.

The Fallacy of Karma

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who recently lost a lot of money in the stock market, feels depressed, and doesn’t know how to deal with this situation. They feel there are four ways they can explain this loss. The first is that they lost the money due to karma from a past life because they didn’t cheat anyone in their current lifetime.

The Council says thinking about your loss in terms of karma is helping you deal with what’s going on, but this thinking isn’t correct because there isn’t any karma. There isn’t anything you need to pay back. There’s no force outside yourself that’s making sure you repay your karmic debt. The only person that feels they have to repay this debt is you. You’ve set it up this way for this lifetime until you come to know who you are. You lost money because of the choices you made, not because of a karmic debt that you were supposed to lose this money to make up for something that happened earlier in this life or a past life. The idea of karma is something you’re using as a tool to give you some understanding until you can experience the truth of the way your life truly is.

Anonymous says, The second way I’m thinking about the loss is that I’m paying back my karmic debt from a past life. I might have owed people the money in my past life so now I’m paying it back in my current lifetime. In other words, my soul enjoyed other people’s money in a previous lifetime and now I’m paying it back with this loss.

The Council says if you enjoyed other people’s money in a past life, that’s wonderful, but there’s still no karmic debt you have to pay back. You may have decided coming into your current life that you’ve had a lot of money in other lives and now you’re interested in living the other side of this coin. And as you grew up you heard what people believed about karma and you chose to believe this to make you feel better.

The Council says your belief in a karmic debt isn’t true, but it’s helping you deal with your stock market loss. This loss was due to your choices. There’s no other reason. How about taking the focus of your thoughts and thinking you don’t need to believe in karmic debt anymore? You don’t need to think there’s an outside force that’s making you lose this money. There’s no debt to repay. For the rest of my life I can go on, live it the way I want, make the choices I want, and know there’s nothing that’s forcing me to go into this thing we call karma and repay anybody.

The Council says you’re just having an experience so you can deal with something and then question it so you can learn and grow from this experience. Now you can change the way you operate in your life. Change your understanding and feel the relief that comes with knowing you don’t have to pay anybody back. There’s nothing to do and there’s no karmic debt.

Anonymous says, The third way I think about this loss is that I have to work through karma in this life before I die. So if I don’t pay this amount when I’m 43 years old, I need to pay it back when I’m older when it’ll be more difficult to digest and recover. It’s better it happened at a younger age. Is this thinking correct?

The Council says, no, this isn’t correct thinking. What’s good is now that you’re hearing this you can start playing with refocusing your thoughts. The nice thing about thinking your situation is karmic and that you have to repay this debt before you die is now that you’ve heard what we have to say, you’ll realize there isn’t any karmic debt. Play with this thought. There is no debt. I don’t have to repay anything. I’m fine if I die tomorrow and I’m fine if I die 20 years from now.

Anonymous says, The last way I think about my situation is had I been more savvy with my investments I’d have lost less money. The Council says you’re very smart to think this way, but this has nothing to do with karma. Anonymous continues, But if my karma was to lose that amount of money, and I was smarter to lose less, karma would have got back to me in another way to bring me the same sorrow to make back for the money shortfall. Examples would be an accident, injury, sickness, etc. So either way I’d have experienced the same sorrow. The Council says you’ll create this situation only if you believe it. There’s no accident waiting to happen. There’s nothing horrible that’s going to happen to you because of this karmic debt.

The Council says when you begin to change your thoughts you’ll be able to create acquiring more money. You’ll create new people in your life. Maybe you’ll create a better job. When you change your thoughts to being a free spirit and that you have control of your life and how you live it, you’ll begin to see an abundance of everything coming to you.

The Council says again that the karma this person believes in only exists because of their belief in it. It’s a tool to deal with the loss of money that occurred. This was set up before you came into this life so you could get to this point and then somehow you’d be able to find out this new information about how karma doesn’t exist. You wanted to experience that sort of thinking and then change your thinking and experience the relief and the change you can create in your life with the new thinking.

Why Am I So Connected To My Ex-Boyfriend?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Broken-Hearted Lady, who wants to know why she feels so connected to her ex-boyfriend who broke up with her. He had become depressed and said he had nothing to offer her.

The Council says in another lifetime you were together as friends in a German concentration camp during World War II. You were separated during that lifetime and there was a feeling of depression and sadness around that.

In your current lifetime there was a desire to come together and create what you could. You didn’t particularly pre-plan that you’d be together forever in this reality, but you did plan to come together and feel a closeness to each other.

The depression your ex feels is something he brought into this life from the life in Germany and he needs to deal with it. In that past life your ex could do nothing for you, and he also feels he can’t do anything for you or anyone else in your current reality. This is an issue he’s dealing with.

It’s good for you to be supportive of your ex. The Council advises you to move on from your ex and look for love in another relationship, but there’s no need to leave your ex behind. You can keep this relationship for whatever amount of time you like.

You need to learn there are different kinds of love. You can love your ex and try to help him, but you can also move forward. You can have both. Your ex needs support to face the challenges in his life. In spirit you wanted to be in your ex’s life and be supportive, no matter how his life turned out. This is why you’re feeling a heavy heart, but you’re doing exactly what you planned in spirit.

You don’t have to cut your ex out of your life unless it becomes too painful for you, but we don’t think it will go in that direction. You can send your ex love, whether you speak once a week, once a month, or once a year. You can still play the role you both agreed to of being supportive and still move on and create what you want.

Broken-hearted Lady says this was one of the most in sync relationships I ever had and I miss my ex dearly. My friends advise me to totally disconnect from him so I can move on, but the thought of doing that doesn’t sit well with me. We communicate every couple of weeks. The Council says this is because you’re intuitive and you subconsciously know what you both planned in spirit.

Broken-hearted Lady says she still has hope of reuniting in the future, but is that foolish? The Council says it is possible, but it’s what you create in your life and what your ex creates. By sending your ex love you help him through what he’s trying to heal in this lifetime and it also brings the vibration of love around you. If this is something you really, really want, then The Council suggests you focus on this.

Focus on your ex coming through the depression. Focus on a good friendship where you can connect and talk more often. Or focus on having a romantic relationship. It will take work. Remember to go into the vibration of joy first. Then imagine the way you want the relationship to be. Then believe you can have this.

Broken-hearted Lady says if my ex and I won’t be together again will I ever find a love that touches my heart and spirit as much as my ex did? The Council says everything is wide open for you right now. You will experience love. How you’re going to create this is totally up to you.

How Can We Help My Aunt with Her Depression?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Looking For Advice, who says: For the last few years my aunt has slipped into a depression. She was a happy and lively woman before, but ever since she became depressed she’s lost the essence of herself.

The Council says the depression is something she’s gone into because she’s focusing on a lot of loss she’s gone through, she’s feeling alone, and she’s close to the end of her life. There is a withdrawing going on and you should allow this withdrawing to happen.

In spirit your aunt prepared to have many disappointing experiences and losses and then to go into this depression to look at each of these experiences. While in her depression your aunt wanted to be surrounded by caring people and experiencing love. Even though she’s withdrawn her spirit can feel this love.

The way to help your aunt is not to treat her as a depressed person, but to speak energetically with her. Talk about daily events, news, and things on television. Keep your aunt in the present moment and get her interested in what’s going on around her. If she’s feeling cared for and allows these feelings from her family and friends to come into her energy field, she’ll slowly come out of this depression.

You have to give your aunt time to experience her feelings and thoughts of loss and think about what she’d like to do with the rest of her life. She’s in a time of withdrawal and during this she’s creating her future.

Looking For Advice says: My aunt’s family has tried all sorts of doctors and praying to different gods, but she’s not even close to the way she was. She’s even undergone thyroid surgeries to make it a little better, but nothing seems to be helping. The Council says the thyroid surgeries aren’t the answer.

The Council says when you experience a lot of loss or a lot of hurt from the people around you, while it’s going on you can ignore it and put it in the back of your mind in order to live your day to day life. When you get older and things quiet down, these memories start to come back into your awareness and make the havoc you weren’t willing to face when you originally experienced them. You must allow your aunt to go through this.

You can ask her if she wants to talk about anything from her past. You can bring up good memories to give her positive thoughts, but the main thing is to show love. By allowing her to be who she is she can work her way through this depression.

The Council closes by saying instead of trying to get your aunt to be her old self, love her by allowing her to be in this challenge that she’s set up for herself. Her higher self wants to go through this depression and find it’s way out.

What Should I Do with My Life?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Derek, who says, I’ve struggled a lot with depression in my life and have always felt out of place since I was very young.

The Council says the reason you feel this way is until the very last moment of your birth you weren’t sure you wanted to come into this life. You were appreciating how much wonder, beauty, and love is in the spirit world and you weren’t sure you wanted to come into this reality at that time. A feeling of not belonging or sometimes a feeling of confusion and not fitting in can occur under these circumstances.

Derek says I feel homesick often, even when I was a child growing up with my family. The emotions are so strong sometimes I just want to explode in sadness and frustration. The Council says this homesickness is for your life in spirit.

Derek says I’d just like to hear what I need from The Council. The Council says you need to meditate daily. This is the most important thing for you. Meditation is what you wished to do to help you on your spiritual path. Once you begin to meditate daily you’ll connect to your spirit guides, you’ll connect with and learn about who you truly are, you’ll be able to see life in the spirit world, and you’ll be able to connect with others who have passed on before you.

The Council suggests any form of meditation that’s comfortable. There are many ways of doing it. There’s sitting quietly and counting your breath. There’s walking barefoot in the countryside and just letting your mind wander. There’s chanting. There’s praying. Usually being out in nature helps. You’ll go from one form of meditation to another until you find what is comfortable for you. You’ll be led to this and you’ll know when you reach it.

Derek closes by saying, I always felt the need to progress spiritually and I feel very alone right now. The Council says we can promise when you meditate daily you won’t feel alone any longer.

Why Am I Experiencing Life Long Depression and Anxiety?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Teri, who asks why her higher self chose to experience chronic lifelong depression and anxiety? Teri says that despite working very hard to be happier, to love myself, and to find meaning and purpose in my existence, I mostly feel ambivalent about being on Earth in a physical body. I never felt I was living a life that suits me. Life feels like just surviving.

The Council says if Teri has ambivalent thoughts about being here and feels like she’s just surviving, the energy your thoughts are putting out will attract more of these situations to you and make what you experience be not enough, sad, and depressed. Depression usually occurs when you don’t understand what’s going on with your thoughts and what you’re allowing yourself to create. There’s confusion about the direction you want your life to go in. Trying to live a life that’ll give you what you want isn’t happening because you don’t understand your depression is really being caused by you.

Stop and ask yourself what you’re thinking about when you feel depressed. Ask yourself why you’re not moving forward, and meditate on this for as long as it takes you to understand that your depression and anxiety are caused by no one but you. The reason you want to experience this depression is that you want to change it. You are in control of the direction your life goes.

In spirit you wanted to experience going off course so you’d read a lot OF books to bring you back on course. Not so much self-help books, but reading books on miracles that happen to people, like Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moorjani. You have experienced miracles in other lifetimes. In your current lifetime you went deeper into the depression and anxiety to change these, but also to show the people around you how to accomplish these changes.

Read books about people that have changed their lives and how they go about it. Read books about angels. These books will give you the push you need to begin to change your energy. Then more things will come into your life that you desire. As you become aware of this energy change you’ll create better and better situations.

Teri says her big dreams and desires are a constant source of longing and suffering because they’re unlikely to come true. The Council says thinking your dreams and desires won’t come true will all by itself keep your dreams from coming true. You have to learn to change these thoughts to where you’re dreams will come true even if you don’t know how they’ll come true.

Teri says she’s spent over 30 years trying to live by spiritual principles. She’s been focusing on and feeling ease and joy, trying to change self-limiting and negative beliefs, trying to manifest her dreams, practicing appreciation, and being of service to others. But this doesn’t change the fact that I still feel depressed and disappointed with myself and the life I’m living.

The Council asks if Teri experienced joy when she was doing these things, or were you doing them with the idea they’d change your life? When you do for others you should get a natural feeling of joy. If you continue to do for others and practice positive thoughts, focus on how you feel. Look for the joy. The more you can do where you feel joy, the easier it’ll become to feel better and better.

Teri says it’s like there’s a clear limit to my potential here on Earth. And The Council says it’s only the limit that you create with your beliefs and your thoughts.

Teri asks if it’s possible that her soul simply wanted to have the experience of hating her life? And The Council says a soul never wants to experience hating it’s life. Your soul goes into a reality and creates things that are challenging with the thought that it will be interesting. I’ll find a way to change this and I’ll feel love again. I’ll find a way to bring love into this reality.

You came into this life to have the challenge of depression and anxiety so you could have the experience of changing it to love. And every time you experience changing something that was difficult for you, the energy goes out to help others who also need to change something difficult.


Listen to the entire 8-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to answer Teri’s questions and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question.

Is Soul Fragmentation Real?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, who asks about what they call soul fragmentation, which they describe as the soul breaking apart from the body during a traumatic event and remaining in that event while the body moves forward. ImportantOrNotBlog asks if soul fragmentation is real or something someone made up?

The Council says the soul will never break apart but if the body is traumatized, the soul will leave the body even though the soul continues to remain attached to the body. The soul watches the body day by day while floating nearby.

If a child is abused the soul can jump out. If there’s a lot of pain or sickness in the body, the soul will jump out so it can watch the body and help it figure out how to move through whatever is going on.

When the soul leaves the body, the person can go into a deep depression or not know what direction to go. The person may not understand what’s going on and feels quite empty and not themselves.

The soul can never leave you and go off somewhere. It will just come out of the body and watch what’s going on. There is always a connection between the soul and the body.

Bob asks The Council how to reintegrate the soul with the body. The Council says if the soul has left the body because of grief, sometimes as the person works through the grief they’ll allow the soul to come back into the body. If there’s abuse of some kind and the soul jumps out and watches this, if the abuser leaves the environment, the soul can come back and work through the abuse because there’s now a feeling of safety. The soul knows the lessons chosen by spirit, but if the mind is temporarily unable to handle an experience, there’s a brief period of time where you will experience what you’re calling soul fragmentation.

Some people like shamen who interact with the spirit world will say they’ll get your soul for you. Some people may need this ritual, but The Council says the only person who can reunite your soul with your body is you. The soul will come when you feel safe and when your mind begins to focus again and work out a way through the trauma it’s experienced. Meditation and prayer will always help with this reintegration. The soul can return as you call the light around and inside your body as a way of protecting yourself and filling you up with the feeling of spirit.

The Council says there are times when the soul will come back into the body and you’ll experience another traumatic episode. If your mind is unable to understand this trauma or deal with it, the soul will jump out again. If you’re in a place where your lessons are too much for you to handle at a particular time even though you’ve created these lessons, your soul knows what you want to learn and will leave your body, watch you develop, send you support, light, and love, and in this process your soul can come in and out of your body.

How long the soul remains out of the body is up to the soul, which knows what the person is trying to accomplish. The soul will continue to help while it floats near the body by sending energy so the mind begins to focus on the light. If this doesn’t happen, you can always go through this lesson in another lifetime. If you knew the way you planned your life was too much in a previous life, you can plan it a different way, but the lessons will always be there.

ImportantOrNotBlog asks if a professional is required to reunite the soul with the body and The Council repeats it’s not required. What’s required, even in what feels like this lost period, is to hold on to a higher vibration or focus on the light, and you can come together with the soul. At this point, if it’s understood and wanted, you can change some of your difficult lessons.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for ImportantOrNotBlog 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.

Help With Depression

This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks The Council for guidance on overcoming depression. They have been using meditation, guided journals, therapy, and medication for years, but just can’t shake this condition. Typically they’re okay when they’re busy, but at other times like now, the situation is unbearably difficult.

The Council suggests when you start feeling depressed you should pay attention to your thoughts. Your thoughts will either lead you into depression or help you come out of it. In your case it’s good to keep as busy as possible. If you’re not working to keep busy, try taking classes, reading, and meditation.

When you meditate, ask to feel your heart energy. This will lift your spirits.

When you don’t feel as good as you’d like, acknowledge this feeling. Then take control by changing your thoughts to better feeling ones. Find something you like about yourself or something you’ve accomplished. Go into old memories that feel good. As you change these heavier thoughts you can begin to change the thoughts that bring on the depression. This will take work on your part, but you’re able to do it.

If you feel some relief from medication, this belief that medication is helping will assist you. You can use medication for a while to lift your energy and still begin to change your thoughts to better feeling ones. This medication would be until you feel better. Once you acknowledge these better feelings you’ll remember them. When you get depressed and change your thoughts and reach for these better feelings, this is how you’ll work your way out of depression.

Anonymous says they understand their negative emotions are creating the depression, but they have difficulty staying positive. The Council says in the beginning you’ll be able to change your thoughts only occasionally, and as you’re able to do this the thoughts will grow and you’ll not have to consistently feel depressed. You are retraining yourself how to focus your attention, and this focus is what you’ll create in your life.

Anonymous asks how they’re able to experience all the good things they’ve created for themselves? The Council says by naming them and being grateful for each one. As you find things to be grateful for, everything begins to change for the better.

The Council’s parting words are to look within yourself for your inner light and meditate on your heart. Picture a little light growing there. This is part of who you are. You are more than your physical body. You are also a wondrous spirit that is light and love. As you look within for this light, you will find it.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Why Do So Many Women Ask About Abortion?

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who’s curious why we get so many questions from women who struggle with abortion. This is a question we ask ourselves from time to time and we thought this would be a good opportunity to get The Council’s opinion on this subject. Anonymous also asks why abortions bring so much pain if they’re pre-planned in spirit.

The Council starts by offering an answer about pre-planning abortions. They say just because we pre-plan in spirit before we are born to have an abortion doesn’t mean we plan to remember this. The purpose of these pre-planned abortions is just to go through the experience and see how we handle it and grow from it.

The Council says many women who go through an abortion experience blame, grief, and heartbreak until they understand they intend to grow from this. And The Council points out many women go through one or more abortions and don’t experience these negative emotions. They go through it believing they made the right choice for themselves, the fetus, and everyone involved, and they move on. Everyone who experiences an abortion does not experience those heartaches.

Bob asks The Council about the first part of Anonymous’s question: why so many questions about abortion? The Council says the reason is that many women struggle with abortion. Maybe they thought it wasn’t a good time to have a child, or the finances weren’t good, or they weren’t in a good relationship, or the partner didn’t want the child. This brings up feelings of guilt and sadness.

Bob says he understands many women struggle with abortions, but he doesn’t understand why so many questions are abortion-related when readers are free to ask questions on any subject. The Council says there is a strong vibration from the two of us to help people through abortions because this is a big problem that causes lots of despair. They say Cynthia and Bob created this website to answer any questions, and yet as spirits we knew the time was coming where more questions needed to be answered about abortion. These questions come from many who need to learn about self love and acceptance.

The Council adds there are more abortions going on now than ever before. In other times there weren’t places where women could have a safe abortion. Women have more choices when they become pregnant now and so this question has grown. As more questions are written about abortion, people realize many others going through something similar and because they aren’t alone in their grief, sadness, and depression, it becomes easier to release these negative emotions.

Toward the end of the session Bob admits it’s still not not clear why there are so many abortion-related questions. The Council says the reason is because abortions are happening more frequently, it’s more out in the open, and because people want to understand that having an abortion is okay.

Getting Rid of the Guilt and Sadness After an Abortion

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Liz in response to a post we wrote titled, Getting Rid of Depression After an Abortion. Liz says she’s struggled with this as well from an abortion she had 11 years ago. She was unable to have intimate relations after the abortion and mysteriously started loosing her hair. Recently she’s started to feel emotions about this abortion that she’s suppressed: deep sadness, anger, resentment, guilt, and shame.

Liz says she doesn’t know how to tell the spirit of the aborted child she’s sorry for terminating the pregnancy, she’s sorry she was careless about getting pregnant, and she’s sorry for feeling resentment about the abortion. She doesn’t know how to forgive herself and let go of this toxic mix of emotions. She’s writing to ask The Council for guidance.

The Council says there is nothing to feel sad, guilty, or depressed about. Every single abortion, including Liz’s, is pre-planned either in spirit before hand, or it’s agreed upon in spirit that when the time comes the souls of the parents and the child will make the decision to abort or move forward.

The Council says perhaps the child didn’t want to live a whole life. Perhaps it only wanted a short visit in Liz’s womb just to experience that. The Council says from our human viewpoint we don’t understand what the soul of this child desires, but in spirit the entire matter was discussed and agreed upon. They repeat there is no purpose for guilt and sadness. Liz should focus on the thought that she completed what was agreed upon by each party and now everyone is free to go on the next part of their journey.

The Council advises Liz to work on her heart and throat centers. Send the energy of love to her throat and talk about what she desires without holding back. Speak with kindness. And the color blue will activate her throat center.

The Council says the color green can activate her heart. Picture love filling her chest cavity and going down her shoulders and arms into her fingers. They advise Liz to allow herself to heal and feel again. As she speaks freely and can feel emotions, even if they are sad at first, her body will begin to work properly.

The Council says as Liz acknowledges her negative, depressive, sad thoughts, she should ask how she can begin to change these thoughts by moving forward into more joyous thoughts. They say everything Liz wants is within her, but she must get to a place of joy so she can create what she desires. There is no reason for continuing to focus on negative thoughts.

The Council asks Liz what she’s learned from this abortion. She went through this abortion so she could begin asking if there’s more to her life. As she asks the questions, she brings in the answers from The Council and others. They say Liz has done exactly what she planned to do and now she needs to move beyond her negative feelings.

Part of what Liz wanted to experience from this abortion was a connection to her spirituality. She wanted to learn there is so much more to who she is than a physical body. By going through this abortion and experiencing sadness and depression and asking for more, she brings help from the spiritual world. She can now connect with the spirit of her aborted child because it’s not dead, it’s just not in her physical life right now, but it’s in her life spiritually and they are still connected. And The Council advises Liz to connect with this love.

The Council says as you and Liz read and listen to this post a healing will take place and you all will grow, and that is part of The Council’s purpose.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear their guidance for Liz and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Some Clarification on a Recent Abortion

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Michelle who asks The Council about her recent abortion. She and her husband made the decision together to abort the child, but Michelle is having difficulty finding peace with her decision. She understands much of what we’ve posted on the subject of abortion, but feels she could still benefit from some additional clarification.

The Council says this pregnancy and abortion was pre-planned in spirit by all involved, including the spirit of the aborted child. At this time a greater feeling of love and togetherness is needed, and a focus on the relationship moving forward before Michelle and her partner are ready to have a child. At this time they aren’t where their higher selves planned them to be when giving birth.

The Council says if they didn’t abort this child there would have been a miscarriage. While there is happiness in this relationship, there is also the thought something is not quite right with the timing for a child.

Focus on creating the proper environment and a loving relationship. Speak to the spirit of the child that will come and tell them what is planned and invite the child back. Meditate, pray, or talk together about plans for the future with this child. All positive thoughts will bring this child in.

The purpose of this pregnancy and abortion at this time was to highlight was is needed in this relationship to bring a child into a loving environment and reassuring the spirit of this child what is planned. The Council believes the same spirit that was aborted will return.

Michelle says during and after both her earlier pregnancies with her two current children she was depressed and she was worried the depression would come back. Now she’s feeling depressed anyway. The Council says this depression must be changed with Michelle’s thoughts. Worrying about this coming back will bring it back. Michelle needs to practice changing her thoughts. Focus on the life they desire and bring love into this situation.

Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Michelle and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Getting Rid of Depression After An Abortion

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Sarah, who had an abortion about a year earlier and feels it left her clinically depressed. She’s scared she’ll have depression for the rest of her life, but she’s not comfortable taking anti-depressants.

The Council starts by saying we experience depression when we’re not connected to who we truly are as spiritual beings, and they suggest meditating on this and focusing less on something being wrong with Sarah’s brain. And they add that as spiritual beings we understand we are here to find the joy in our experience, and because Sarah is so unhappy, this depression is pushing her to search for something more.

The Council recommends books and videos that teach how we plan our lifetimes as spiritual beings and they specifically suggest reading books by Robert Schwartz. And they say depression comes because Sarah doesn’t appreciate what she’s created for herself and the spirit she aborted. Many think of abortion as an ending of a life, but The Council says it’s a beginning because this soul is now free to have other experiences, including returning to Sarah in a future pregnancy.

The Council says Sarah had a spiritual contract with this aborted soul who wanted to experience what it was like to be part of an aborted pregnancy. This soul was not interested in experiencing a full term pregnancy but if Sarah wishes to move forward, this soul can return to her in a future pregnancy. And The Council says these two souls will have a closer bond because they experienced this abortion together.

The Council emphasizes there isn’t any need for Sarah to feel depressed about this abortion because everything went according to the way the two souls planned this, and there is great love between these two spirits, and great love in deciding what path to take next.

The Council encourages Sarah to look for books that connect her to spirit and past lives, and they recommend the books of Emmanuel by Pat Rodegast. They also encourage Sarah to do whatever it takes to get into the vibration of love and joy, and from this vibration she’ll be able to create her future the way she wants it to be.

The Council says this aborted soul has continually been sending Sarah love from the moment this abortion was planned in spirit and there is still a stream of love flowing from this soul to Sarah, helping her to get through this depression. The more Sarah is able to let this love in, the less she’ll need to concern herself with a relapse of depression.

The Council closes with a recommendation to look for little moments of love and joy from her spirit and the spirit of her aborted child to move her forward in this lifetime.

Listen to our entire 13-minute conversation  with The Council (below) to experience their full guidance for Sarah and the rest of us.

Feeling Good About Ex-Husband’s Passing

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Lunar Teddy about the death of her ex-husband and the pain and mourning she’s experiencing as a result.

The Council says the pain and suffering Lunar Teddy is experiencing come from searching for the validation she wanted from her ex-husband rather than finding it within herself. They recommend instead that she focus on any happiness she can remember when she was with her ex, and to know that he has completed his task in this reality and is in a joyous, loving place.

The Council says feeling grief and loss or that she and her ex never connected will take her thoughts into creating sadness and depression. They ask Lunar Teddy to speak to her ex in her mind before she goes to sleep and tell him all the things she would like to have done when he was here. The Council assures Lunar Teddy her ex will hear these things and will send her love. And the peace she’s looking for will come.

The Council encourages Lunar Teddy to release any unpleasant thoughts about her ex-husband’s family. They say it was what he needed to experience and she can be glad he completed it and is in a much better place. And they repeat that her ex is sending her much love, and she can focus on this when she feels separation from him.

Listen to the entire 6-minute recording of our session with The Council to answer Lunar Teddy’s question to receive the full benefit of their guidance.

When you are depressed or fearful,
It is only because you have forgotten that
You are in control.

You are in control.
Anything else is an illusion
And a false belief.

You are a magnificent spirit
In a physical body,
Creating and exploring
Your world.

—The Council
