Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

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
