Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

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.

Listen to the recording of our entire 10-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

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
