Can I Create The Outcome Of My Corrected PhD Thesis?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Anna, who says: I’m a PhD student at the end of my studies. I passed a grueling exam, which included one examiner shouting at me for nearly two hours, and I’d be handed my degree subject to completing some corrections. I love the subject I wrote about, labored over my corrections, and submitted them at the end of last year, but have heard nothing since.

The Council asks Anna: Why is there doubt that what you did is not good enough? As we tell everyone, you are the creator. You will create according to what you believe. If you believe these people won’t accept your corrections and won’t pass you, you’ll create that. How about turning the focus around and keep thinking, I did a wonderful job. I really came up with wonderful corrections. I’m so proud of it and happy with it. I will pass this. This is wonderful.

Anna says: I have this feeling in the pit of my stomach and had a dream that my PhD examiners will not pass my thesis corrections. The Council says: It’s all your fear and doubt that creates this.

Anna says: Once I realized I felt this way I began using affirmations, visualizations, and prayers that my thesis would be approved. The Council says: But your belief hasn’t changed. You are praying, almost begging for them to pass your corrections, by some miracle. Take your power. Visualize it. Feel it. You’re happy. You’ve completed your thesis. Now imagine it’s been accepted.

Everything that everyone experiences is created by them. Your fear and doubt are created by you. It’s your job right now to believe in yourself and reach a place of confidence. No matter how long it takes you to create that, you have to wait and believe your PhD thesis will be accepted. These evaluators that you’ve created are just a challenge. It’s so you can learn who you are and how powerful you are.

You ask if it’s true you can create anything? You want proof. And we tell you to do the work. If you see it, if you feel it and don’t beg for it from a place of doubt, but be confident your thesis is perfect and wonderful, you’ll be happy with it and you’ll create it.

Anna says: Sometimes I’m able to feel better about receiving my PhD and believe it, and sometimes I don’t. The Council says: When you don’t believe it, acknowledge your disbelief, realize you’re in your doubt again, and change your thought immediately. Have the discipline to get into a confident mode. Know you are a powerful spirit running around in this world because you want to see who you really are. You want to discover how powerful you are and that you are the creator. That’s why you’ve created this situation.

Anna says: I also used tarot card readings to see what the outcome would be and I received the same message, that my corrections wouldn’t pass. The Council says the reason for this is it’s what you believe at this time.

Anna says: I’m wondering if I can really change this outcome? The Council says: Without a doubt, you can. Anna says: Can I really change two people’s free will and their decision about my work? The Council says: Yes, because when you create, you’ll create it in a way that fits into your world and these people will change. You don’t have to know how or why they’ll change, but you can create that they will change.

Anna says: It feels to me that to create this change would be a miracle. The Council says: Yes, it is. It’s a wonderful miracle. And in the evaluators’ world they’ll create it where, perhaps they don’t pass you. But their world is completely different from your world. The people in your world will respond to you according to what you believe. The power here comes from your choice to believe, no matter how frightened you get. And when you get frightened, grab that thought, acknowledge it, and change it. Then you’ll create the miracle you’re looking for.

Anna says: But if I can create this miracle, am I going about it in the right way, or is there something else I can do? The Council says: We’re telling you to refocus. Don’t stay in the energy of fear or doubt, but be very aware of it, acknowledge it, and then change it. Focus your thoughts. Feel as if it already happened the way you want it to. The feeling is your magnet that will bring that response and create it in your life.

Anna asks: Did I attract this examiner’s behavior in my exam? The Council says: Of course. Part of the lessons you wanted to learn in this particular lifetime was being brave, being courageous, being independent, and being proud of yourself, which is a big lesson for you. All of this situation with your PhD certification has been created to give you the opportunity to change your thoughts, to experience life the way you want it, and to feel really good about yourself.

Anna asks: Am I attracting the delay in hearing my PhD results from them. The Council says: Again we say, of course, because you believe it. It’s on its way to you, you doubt it, and then everything stops and you’re delaying it. Stay with positive thoughts. The more you can do this, the more quickly your desires will come to you.

Anna asks: How does my dream and the tarot reading work in this situation? The Council says: It’s all showing you what you believe. What happens to you in any situation in your life is showing you what your belief is. That’s all it is. If you don’t like your dream or the tarot reading, start changing your thoughts and you’ll see the change you want in your life.

Anna asks: Are the dream and the tarot card reading just projections of how I’m feeling. The Council says: Of course. Anna continues: Or are they telling me what is now a set-in-stone outcome? The Council says: It’s not set in stone, but it’s telling you what you’re creating. With this knowledge you have the chance to change the outcome.

The Council says: We send you all blessings, love, happiness, peace, and the courage to look at who you really are, to want to know who you really are, and to experience who you really are. The way you do this is through the thoughts in your mind. Everything in your life is coming through your thoughts.

Asking The Universe For A Sign About Yes Or No Questions

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Virgo Rising, who wants to know about asking the universe Yes or No questions. They say, I don’t really trust tarot cards or pendulums to answer Yes or No questions, so the other day I decided to ask the universe for a sign instead. I told myself if I saw a hot pink car (which is rare in the area where I live) within a specific time frame, the answer to my question is, No.

The Council asks, Do you know that you’re the one who created this pink car so you can see it, because your higher self already has all the answers. Because you want some sort of proof, the universe will conspire to help you out in whatever way you need it to. When you’re thinking of putting a pink car in front of you to give you an answer, the universe replies: Of course we’ll make this happen. You’re creating this pink car. This is what you want, and this will give you your answer.

Virgo Rising says, My question is one that is set in stone because I was asking about something that already happened that I didn’t know the truth about. I won’t put the question I asked here, but it was similar to: Did so-and-so lie to me about this thing they said?

No more than a few minutes later as I’m driving on the highway, a hot pink car merges onto the road and pops itself right in front of me. I was in total shock and felt like it couldn’t possibly be a coincidence because, not only did it show up so quickly, but it merges onto the highway and plops itself right in front of me. The Council says, Look how wonderfully your higher self is helping you work out the answer to your question. You needed this answer, which you intuitively knew, but doubted. And so, once again the universe says: We’ll help you. This is what you need. This is what you are creating.

Virgo Rising says, I’ve done this a few more times with other Yes or No questions and I’ve had similar experiences. I want to know if the answers I’m getting when I play this little game with the universe are actually true, or if this is all just a coincidence. The Council says there are no coincidences. What you’re getting are true answers, but we see here you don’t accept it. You don’t accept what you yourself have created. And so you need more and more signs, and there are more and more questions.

The Council asks: How about releasing the doubt at this point? How about going with whatever signs you get, believing it, and then letting your question go? You can ask the same question ten different ways. You may want to see a purple car. You may want to see a tree laying on the ground. And you’ll get the same answer because you (your higher self) know the answer. When you create these questions and answers in a way that comes to you, we see here you still doubt. There are still questions. Learn to trust.

The Council sends everyone blessings, love, happiness, and peace. They wish us the courage to look at who you really are, the desire to know who you really are, and to experience who you really are. The way you do this is through the thoughts in your mind. Everything in your life is coming to you from your thoughts.

How Can I Overcome Authority Problems With My Students?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Christea17, who works as a teacher who’s having some difficulty with her students. Some of them are very disrespectful, lack interest in learning, and it’s difficult to teach them anything. Unfortunately I feel I lack the authority, strength, and energy I need to change the atmosphere in my classes.

The Council says this feeling of lack is exactly where the problem comes from. If you don’t believe in yourself and what you’re able to accomplish, you won’t be able to manifest what you desire into your reality. What you need to do is start within yourself to be aware of what you want to accomplish. Be aware of the training you have and that you know how to handle this situation.

In your current lifetime you wanted to work with very young children. If possible, we suggest you find a position where you’re working with very young children, even what’s considered daycare, and start there. Build trust in what you have to offer to these children and it will be accepted.

Christea says she doesn’t know how to deal with unpleasant situations. I like teaching, but rarely do I feel like I can teach my students something. Sometimes it’s really depressing what’s going on in my classes. The Council points out that you don’t know if you have the ability to teach and if these children could be interested. There’s so much doubt in your thoughts and your beliefs that at this particular time this teaching isn’t something that will work for you until you work on yourself.

In the beginning, when you get a new class to take care of, show an interest in each child. Instead of going right into the educational requirements, express to these children that you’d like to know all about them. One at a time, have them tell you something about themselves and see if you can connect with that. See if you can say something like, I went through that also, or that’s funny, or look how you turned the situation around and you went through it. What are your interests? Ask your students if they could be in a classroom and could choose what you wanted to learn about, what would that be?

Get more of an idea from the children what they want. The students would begin to see you as someone who’s interested in them, and then share part of your path. What was your childhood like? What do you go through now? Ask them about their interests. This is very important. The way the educational system is now isn’t interesting to most children.

Find ways to get the children’s interest and then teach them a little about what they want. For an hour in the morning you can take one child and talk about what they’re interested in, and tell them as much as you know about that subject. After that you can go into what they need to learn as far as the education system is concerned. The next day pick another child. You can ask them if they could learn anything, what would that be? Always show the children you’re interested in what they want.

The Council says there’s a past life connection in the early 1700s where you were part of a group of children that lived in the same area and had to work to help their family exist, grow food, and make clothing. There was always the thought of going to a proper school, learning in large groups, and sharing knowledge, but this wasn’t possible in that particular life. In your current life you’ve created a situation where you not only want to learn, but you also want to teach. Your doubt of how to do this and how to handle unruly children is part of the lesson you’ve brought into this lifetime.

The easiest way to teach these children is to find things they’re interested in, and show you have an interest in them as people. Always ask them what they want to learn. If they could teach this class, what would they want to learn? And when they act unruly or give you silly answers you can laugh with them and tell them it’s funny, but bring the conversation around to what they’d do if they were the teacher. Get their minds going by imagining what they’d do if they were in charge. You’ll see a big difference. If you can’t handle this right now, we advise you to try and work with smaller and younger groups until you feel more confident. This confidence must come through you first.

Christea17 says, I wish I knew how to deal with these situations better and how to interact more positively with my students. The Council advises Christea17 to be a regular person. Show interest in your students. Tell them about yourself. This will change the atmosphere.

The Council adds that there’s a little exercise you can do. Sit in front of the classroom before you start your lessons. Picture a beautiful green energy in your heart. If there are twenty people in your class, send out twenty ropes of energy from your heart, one to each child in the room. See that rope of green energy going into them, circling around, and coming back to you. Make this connection and this will also help. Everything begins with energy first. The green light energy is healing, it’s love, and it works with the heart.

The Council closes by wishing everyone peace, love, and light. They say have fun on your path. Always look for the fun. The happiness will bring in everything you wish to create, whether you know what it is now or not. Your higher self knows. And when you stay happy it can bring it in.

What is the Buffer of Time Regarding Manifestation?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Juan, who asks The Council for an explanation of the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting. For those of you unfamiliar with these two topics, manifesting as it’s used here is the creation of something wanted or unwanted  in your life by focusing your attention on it. And the buffer of time refers to how long it takes to create in your physical reality what you are focusing on.

The Council says there isn’t any set buffer of time. They say you will create in your life according to your beliefs, your seeing what you are thinking about, feeling it, and knowing it’s yours to have.

The Council asks how strong is your thought of what you’d like to manifest. Do you constantly focus on it or do you focus on it, but then forget it for a day or two, which makes the buffer of time last longer. Do you focus on something and then doubt whether it will come to you because it’s not coming quickly enough?

The Council says just by having the desire for something, it is yours in a non-physical reality. If you can stay in the feeling and vibration of what you focus your attention on, and not doubt you can have it and without giving up, it would manifest almost immediately, but they say most people are unable to do this.

The Council says the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting what you are focused on, is entirely up to you.

Listen to this brief, but thought provoking 2-minute session we had with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Juan and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

How Do You Recognize True Inspiration from Spirit?

A Question from Chris

This post is a response to a question from Chris, who asks The Council, “How do you really know when messages from meditation are really what to follow?” Chris explains she often gets excited by ideas to go in a certain direction with her life, but when she considers these inspirations in the light of her day-to-day experience, they don’t seem so inspirational any more. Chris gives the following two examples: ideas about new people coming into her life that never seem to come, and ideas about a direction she should take for work that maybe don’t turn out the way she hoped.

Chris’s questions seem relevant for many readers, even if you’re not a meditator. If you ever felt good about an inspiration to take your life in a particular direction, only to end up feeling confused when the inspiration ends up feeling like an impractical and unattainable desire, you may find The Council’s guidance helpful.

Law of Attraction for Skeptics – Consider the Possibility

During a recent session with The Council they seemed concerned many people question the validity of the law of attraction and don’t understand how to use it to their advantage. The information in this post is intended to help you experience the validity of the law of attraction even of you’re skeptical that it exists. It’s also intended to show you how the law of attraction can improve your life even if you don’t think it can.

Law of Attraction Makes it to Primetime

After the widely popular release of The Secret, a 2006 film and a 2007 book about the law of attraction that received a lot of attention in the media, and some bestselling books on this subject by Esther and Jerry Hicks, the law of attraction seems to have found a place in popular culture. Amazon.com recently listed over 1,000 books on the subject, including The Complete Idiot’s Guide to The Law of Attraction. But The Council says there’s a lot of misunderstanding about the law of attraction (LOA).

Does God Exist?

This is a follow up to previous post titled: Believing in a Loving and Benevolent God When Life Sucks. Barry P. read that post and passed along the following anecdote about believing in God. I found it thought provoking and worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it.

The Young Man & The Barber

A young man, while getting a haircut and his beard trimmed, was deep in conversation with his barber. The conversation turned to the subject of God and the barber proclaimed, “I don’t believe God exists.”

“What makes you so sure,” asked the young man?

The barber walked to the window and replied, “All you have to do is look out in the street to realize God doesn’t exist. If God existed, there wouldn’t be any sickness, or pain, or suffering. I can’t imagine a God that would allow these things.”

The young man was about to disagree with the barber when he had a feeling he should hold back. He was surprised by this feeling, but decided to follow his intuition. He tactfully changed the subject of the conversation, but kept thinking about the barber’s comment about God.

As the young man was leaving the barbershop, he noticed through the window a man on the street who had very long, unkempt hair and a long, unkempt beard. This gave the young man an idea.

He turned to the man who just trimmed his hair and beard and proclaimed, “Barbers don’t exist.”

“Are you crazy,” asked the barber? “You just paid me to cut your hair and trim your beard.” I’m living proof that barber’s exist.

The young man replied, “Look out in the street. Do you see that man with long messy hair and a long straggly beard? If barber’s exist, there wouldn’t be anyone who looked like that. I can’t imagine barbers would allow something like this.”

And the young man turned and left.

Feelings are Guidance from the Pure Spirit We Truly Are

Feeling a Need for Change, but Uncertain about a Career Move to the Arts

In this post The Council offers guidance on decision making. The post is a response to Sandy’s request for guidance about a career decision. He’s between jobs and wonders if he should stick to a career path he’s familiar with or try something completely outside of the box. He likes the idea of being involved in the Arts, but he tends to think of himself as a math and science person.

What Do I Do With My Life

The Council observes that many of us stress over making decisions, and this stress can make it difficult to achieve the outcomes we desire. They suggest when it comes to making decisions about the path to take in our life, the more relaxed we can be about the process, the more satisfying the outcome will be. For Sandy, The Council suggests making an effort to enjoy this time between jobs and to consider his desires.

“What brings you happiness? Which thought? Which imaginary situation brings you joy…a smile to your face? There are many things you can choose from.”

–The Council
