How Can We Change the Life We Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, PE, who wants to know how to change the pre-birth plans they made when they were still in spirit, and they give the following example. If you’re very sick, can you decide you’d rather not deal with the issue of sickness in your current lifetime and your body will heal itself?

The Council explains that the experiences we wish to go through once we enter our physical lifetime are chosen by us in spirit to help us grow. During your spiritual pre-birth planning, sometimes you pick a lesson that will be very difficult once you enter physical reality, although in spirit it doesn’t feel like it will be difficult. The spirit chooses to have the experience because it wants to learn from it and grow. When you pre-plan something in spirit, your higher self knows why you want to go through this. But in your physical lifetime as you face these difficulties you may say, “I’ve had enough. I don’t want to deal with this.” But your spirit knows better; it knows how much it wants to go through this experience to learn and grow from it.

When you’re going through an experience and find it too stressful and it prevents you from experiencing other things you desire to experience in that lifetime, you can go through part of it and decide to continue it in another lifetime instead. But that’s the human part of you making that decision. The spiritual part of you will help you get through a difficult experience and when you finally learn the lesson, the body will instantaneously heal.

Sometimes all you need to realize is that the healing comes from within you. When you realize you’re a powerful spiritual being in a physical body, you can change your life. Many people who go through an illness don’t feel powerful and go through it without understanding this is something they chose in spirit. They think let me ease this experience and continue it at another time. The Council says it’s possible to do this.

But The Council adds that what you experience is what you believe. If you believe you’ve chosen this difficult illness in spirit, you can speak to your spirit in meditation and prayer and ask for this difficulty to change. If your faith and your belief are strong enough, you can do this. You, as a human being, are always in control with your thoughts, with how you look at each experience, and how you try to understand the lesson behind the difficulty.

The Council says whatever lesson we choose to go through in this physical reality we always come for one reason and that’s to figure out how to bring love into the lesson we’re going through? How can I learn to love in this situation? How do the people around me learn to love in this situation? Always know you can reach out to your higher self in meditation or prayer and ask to be shown the lesson you wished to learn. Ask to see this lesson the way you presented it to your spirit guides when you pre-planned it. And ask to remember who you truly are as a spiritual being and that you have a choice in your physical life.

As a human being having an uncomfortable experience you can say, I’ve had enough, I don’t want to deal with this difficulty any more. But who you are as a spiritual being knows it has to push you through this difficulty. It was your desire to get through this experience. But if it seems too much for you right now, you can ask to let yourself learn from what you’ve experienced so far, and continue this lesson in another lifetime.

When you meditate and connect with your higher self, a dialogue begins and your higher self will know how to get you through this difficulty, how to make it easier, or how to change it. You are your higher self. You have access to your higher self when you meditate, whether you feel it consciously or not. You have access to your higher self when you pray. You have access to your higher self when you dream.

When you learn you are your higher self, which creates the human part of you that’s going through this difficult experience, that spirit part of you is coming with you on this journey and is seeing how you handle each experience. Your higher self understands what was agreed upon before you came into your physical reality and it knows how the human part of you can handle the difficulty.

Meditate and visualize healing energy around you. Know your connection to your higher self is there, even if you don’t feel it consciously. The more you think of the way you want your life to be, your life will adjust to these thoughts. Take time to meditate and speak with your higher self. You may not remember what you planned. Your life may be difficult and you think you can’t learn from it. Can you find a way to change your life? Can you make it less traumatic? But you have to reach out with your thoughts, knowing that you’re connected to your higher self.

Many people believe there’s the human part of you, and your spirit part is way off somewhere else. It’s not. You are that spirit part of you. When you think you bit off more than you can chew, the higher part of you knows what you planned and why you planned it. If you believe your higher part can ease your difficulty, it can. If you believe your higher part can cure your illness, it can. Each lesson you go through brings you to the understanding you’re not a victim. When you know there is an answer to your questions – and you don’t have to know how your answer will come –  the answer will come when you’re open to it. But you have to think, “I am the one who will change this. I am the one that will connect with the part of me that has all the answers.” And when you let go of the fear and the discouragement the answers will come.

Play with the reasons you could have planned your difficulty. Many people use illness or a disability as a punishment. The Council says that’s only a thought in the human mind that you’ve carried with you into this world, and you’ll create the disease or the disability if you feel there’s a reason for this. When you connect to spirit, you’ll know that everything you think you should be punished for was just an experience for you to learn from. There’s no one here keeping track of how far you’ve come or if you’ve been punished long enough. The answer comes in prayer and meditation. In your quiet time your answers will come.

The Council ends by saying they think some who hear the guidance in this post won’t find it easy to understand, and they say this is fine. Listen to it again and again and do the mediations, and talk to your spirit, and you’ll see the difference in your lives.

Listen to the entire 17-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us. A session like this one is particularly difficult to recap with just the highlights, as we’ve attempted to do in this written summary. And let us know what you feel about this session.

Reaching Self-Realization Through a Third Eye Chakra Meditation

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Seeking Truth, who says during meditation they see their Third Eye opening and the colors Blue, Indigo, and sometimes Yellow. A meditation center that Seeking Truth visits told them it looks like they’re trying to connect with the divine through their Third Eye rather than through the Crown (7th Chakra) and it will be difficult for them to reach self-realization.

The Council says it doesn’t matter which chakra you use during meditation in order to connect with the divine. Many people connect with their higher self, God, or powerful force through the Heart Chakra. The Council feels that as Seeking Truth continues to meditate they will connect with the divine and it becomes more difficult when you place limits on yourself that you have to connect through a specific chakra. You are always connected to the divine. And it’s not commonly known that inside each chakra you can find an additional 7 chakras (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Purple).

You can connect to the divine through prayer, you can connect in your dreams, you can connect by staring at trees and appreciating their beauty, you can connect by staring at the sky or the stars, you can connect by watching animals, or appreciating babies. When you see these and other things and realize that you and it is part of the divine, you are connected to that divinity no matter what way you use to get there.

In addition to the ways The Council already mentioned to connect with the divine they also recommend prayer, and the meditations we’ve posted here for balancing and aligning your chakras. A good way to work on your Crown chakra is to close your eyes, look up to the top of your head, begin to pray for a divine connection, and imagine a beautiful White or Gold light coming into your head from above.

Seeking Truth finishes with a question about better paying job offers they’ve been receiving, but they’re reluctant to accept them because they have a young child and their current job offers them a lot of freedom to be with the child. The Council advises Seeking Truth to stay with their current job for now because the freedom to be with the child that this job offers is needed right now. The Council adds that Seeking Truth will only be paid less for a limited time and it’s good to spend as much time as possible with their child.

Listen to the entire 7-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Seeking Truth and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Recommendations for Improving a Difficult Life After Divorce

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Laurie, who left a 25 year marriage a couple of years ago to a man she believes is a narcissistic sociopath. She investigated her ex-husband’s finances in preparation for the divorce, but the mediator wouldn’t hear details. She broke down and settled on the divorce terms and later realized it was at a large financial cost to her. The Council asks Laurie, when she realized the divorce wasn’t fair to her, was she able to let go of this because she’d made the decision? Or did you feel anger and loss, and that you were taken advantage of, and now feel the divorce was wrong?

The Council points out that the decision you made was to accept the divorce settlement, and it’s very difficult for some people to see where their decisions bring about what’s happening. Do you want to put yourself in a place of fear and anger and fight the settlement you accepted. Or has this taught you a valuable lesson and now you wish to move forward in peace and begin to create the life you wish to have?

Laurie says she feels lost, financially scared, and despite all the horrible things her ex-husband has done to her, she misses him because she’s afraid of living alone, unloved, and unable to do things that may have been possible in the marriage. The Council says because of finances and the fear of being on your own are you willing to put yourself back in a situation that was unbearable? The Council asks Laurie to question herself about this decision. Why would you put yourself in a situation where you’d have to go through the difficulty again, and it would be the same. What’s the reason for going back to this man? Is it worth hanging onto this relationship that will prevent you from moving forward and creating a new life because you’re in the middle of this traumatizing experience?

You and your ex-husband have both agreed in spirit to create your marriage. What have you learned? If one person is beating up the other person, why would you consider going back to that? Isn’t there an easier way to learn? Or have you forgotten you came into this lifetime to bring love into your life? That’s the bottom line why you’re here.

The Council says Laurie isn’t alone. There’s always spirits around you that are willing to help you if you give them a chance. If you have the littlest bit of faith, signs will come to you through dreams, through readings, and through talking with people. Opportunities will open up for you when you simply say I want to experience love. I want to experience a life where I’m happy and feel safe. Put this out there on a daily basis. Visualize the kind of life you’d like to have and create this with your thoughts. You’ll begin to build what you desire so that it shows up in your reality.

Laurie says she’s 57 years old and believes stress is taking a toll on her previously healthy body. She’s confused why she’s suffered from her divorce rather than having gotten to a better place. The Council says the marriage was an experience she wished to have and then move forward. Do you sit and think over and over all the uncomfortable things you went through? Or do you say to yourself it’s a new beginning. I’ll begin to create from a place of love.

Many people who go through a divorce are very sad and they get stuck in that sadness and don’t move forward. The Council says they can see that happening in Laurie’s case. They say not only are you not moving forward, but you’re thinking about going backward.

Find joy in things you like to do. Appreciate you’re not in an uncomfortable relationship with a partner like your ex-husband. When your thoughts change the situation must change and your body must change. You’re a spirit in a human body and you’ve created your life every step of the way. Can you wish your ex-husband happiness in the lessons he needs to learn? What were the signs your relationship was detrimental to you? What do you see that you’d handle differently? How would you bring more joy into a relationship?

You’re at a place where you can begin to move forward and change everything. There’s no need to go back. There are many new friends available to you. There are some old friends from other lifetimes that will come into your life. No matter what you’ve gone through, no matter how horrible you think it may have been, you agreed in spirit to experience it and you’ve come through it. Now ask yourself where can you go from here? What do you want?

Laurie says she’s been given the lesson that life isn’t fair, but still wants to believe light triumphs over dark. The Council says of course life is fair. It’s exactly what you wanted to experience. It may not look like wonderful experiences, but it’s what you called in to your life.

The Council recommends Laurie read books about changing her life, like Emmanuel’s Book, by Pat Rodegast and books from Abraham, by Esther and Jerry Hicks. Fill your mind with the words of spirit. And try the exercises that are explained in the Abraham books.

Laurie says she still thinks about going back to her ex-husband despite all the horrible things he’s done to her. She’s empathetic to the hurt little boy inside him rather than focusing on the horrible things he’s done. The Council says it’s wonderful you can feel for the little boy inside him. The Council says that’s a plus, not a minus. Perhaps you can send that little boy some love with your thoughts. Perhaps you can send beautiful pink energy to the adult to help him move forward with their lessons.

By not blaming your ex-husband and understanding he also had lessons he wanted to learn from your marriage, and that you both agreed in spirit to everything that happened in your relationship, the love within you expands and you will grow. Whether you wish yourself love or you wish other people love, just thinking about love changes your vibration.

The Council advises Laurie to do simple steps first. Be grateful. Send love. Be interested in what other people say when they come along to help you. Give other people compliments and be kind. You’ll see yourself beginning to feel better.

Listen to the 15-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Laurie and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

What to Do If You’ve Created a Spiritual Void, and How to Create Your Way Out

This post answers questions from a reader named, Nandawu, who says this year they feel they’ve lost their motivation and the dreams in their life. They feel frustrated and annoyed no matter what they try and they don’t know what to do with their life. Everything seems difficult for them and they don’t feel like they belong in this material life. They can’t have a job, friends, lovers, or money, and they ask The Council for their help.

The Council says Nandawu has put themself into what they call the great void. You’re at a point in your life where you’re changing what you want to accomplish. And with this change you can go through a period of weeks, months, or even years sometimes where you’re in this void and you feel nothing is happening. This is because you, your spirit guides, and higher self are rethinking what you want to accomplish in this lifetime.

In this void, which feels horrible but truly isn’t, there is what The Council calls – the waiting. Think about your wildest dreams of what you’d like to do and what you’d like your life to be like, even if you think there’s no way for you to achieve this. Information will come to you in dreams. Have the craziest and most wonderful thoughts of where your life can go. In your happiness as you begin thinking anything is possible, you’ll bring into this lifetime what you need to move forward.

Prayer, meditation, yoga, and reading spiritual books are wonderful for you while you’re in this void. The Council particularly recommends, Emmanuel’s Book: A Manuel for Living Comfortably in the Cosmos, by Pat Rodegast & Judith Stanton. This book will give you ideas and will strengthen your connection to your higher self.

The Council says this is a wonderful time for you because the spirits around you are helping you go down a new path and form a new life. All you have to do is play with your thoughts. And the more you can do this and the happier you feel, the information you need will come to you quickly.

The Council says many people, as they plan in spirit what they want to do in the coming lifetime, pick several things – talents and experiences they’ve had in previous lifetimes, or something brand new. As you come into this lifetime the circumstances and the spirits you’ve called in to be part of your life will help you shape your direction. But many people are sometimes unsure what they want to do in their life and there’s a concern whether they’ll like what they’ve chosen. Then all the spirits involved in your life agree to create what feels like a stagnant period for you to go through so you can realign with something you’d like to do. This is what you’ve chosen.

Please listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Nandawu and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

How Can I Communicate with My Spirit Guides Without Having Spiritual Readings?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Marie, who says she’d like more clarity when she communicates with her guides. For years she’s received information through spiritual readings and now she’s interested in additional ways she can communicate with spirit.

The Council begins by informing Marie she already receives information from her higher self in her dreams, whether she’s conscious of this or not. And they add that in past lives she’s done something called automatic writing and it will be good for her to continue it in this lifetime.

Sit quietly with a pencil and paper and meditate. Let your hand begin to move. At first you may get nothing that makes any sense – a word here or there. Write it down and don’t question it. Eventually you’ll get a few words and then a sentence. As you meditate and let this energy in, you’ll be able to communicate with spirit in this manner. Later when the communication is coming through stronger you can switch to working with a computer if you find this more satisfying.

Marie asks if there’s any difference between communicating with her higher self and communicating with other spirit guides. The Council replies that the higher self is who Marie truly is, and this higher self is connected to everything, but there are many other spiritual guides that she’s also able to connect with. Your higher self knows whatever information you desire and it’s you’re goal in this lifetime to bring this information into your reality.

The easiest way to connect with your higher self is to sit quietly and see what comes through. The Council doesn’t believe Marie will be able at first to stop her mind from distracting chatter, but it will slow down and information will come through a little at a time.  Gradually this information will develop more powerfully. When you wish to reach out to other guides that are around to help you with needed information, you can send your energy out to the universe through your crown chakra on the top of your head.  Ask for guides to come through that have helped you in other lifetimes and are here to help you in this lifetime.

You’ll know the difference between your higher self and other guides that are connecting with you by how it feels. When you connect with your guides you’ll know it comes from beyond who you are in this moment. Getting used to the different feelings about what’s your higher self and what’s another spirit, you’ll learn how to bring these in more and this will help you with the growth on your path.

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

Do I Have a Connection to the Pleiades Star System in Other Lifetimes?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, SoulPeace191689339, who says she’s read about the Pleiades star system and wonders if she has a connection to this system. She’s been having dreams, has been guided, has a lot of intuition, and sometimes she’s able to feel other people’s thoughts. She also has a thirst for knowledge about Egypt, Atlantis, and the purpose of incarnation. SoulPeace asks The Council if she has a connection to the Pleiades or any other extraterrestrial beings?

The Council starts by saying it’s interesting that so many questions lately on our blog are from the Pleiadians for more information. There are many Pleiadians here on Earth and their role is to guide Earthlings and help us grow. Some of this information comes in dreams. Some information comes with the realization you’re interested in certain historical time periods on Earth. The Council advises you to research these time periods on the internet, read books, see movies, and more information about these time periods will come to you.

The Council says SoulPeace has a connection to the Pleiades right now because the Pleiadians are trying to raise her energy and open her mind to other lifetimes.

The Council says the purpose of reincarnation is to come into physical reality as many times as we like with the choices of what we want to learn and the choices of what souls we want to come in with us. And The Council emphasizes we have the ability, at any time in this incarnation, to change what we experience.

The Council says now many people are here on Earth going through negative experiences because they are brave souls who desire to change their reality to something more positive. In each lifetime you bring spirits around you that agree to help you learn whatever you wish to make your lifetime about. And The Council says you are also helping these spirits learn.

Spirits think it’s such fun to come into the Earth path because other spirits you’ve known for many lifetimes will be with you again, changing roles, but you’ll all grow from what you’re trying to learn. That is also the purpose of incarnation, as well as to bring the love we experience in spirit into our current incarnation.

The Council says they see SoulPeace had a life on Pleiades where she was a young, adventurous spirit who wanted to go beyond the Pleiadian realm and help people. The Council asks SoulPeace if she feels people come to her with their problems? Or do you want to reach out and touch sick people? What SoulPeace learned in her brief time on the Pleiades was to help people in other lifetimes, even in the smallest way.

In addition to her Pleiadian lifetimes SoulPeace lived lives where no physical body was needed and only emotion was experienced. This should translate in her current lifetime into a great understanding of what people go through and the different emotions these people experience. By understanding these emotions and how they effect the way the body and the beliefs develop, there is a lesson for SoulPeace to heal not only the body, but also people’s emotional problems. This is the healing SoulPeace intends to do at this point in her life.

The Council says SoulPeace spent many lifetimes in Atlantis. There she learned to change form, work with elements (air, fire, water), she was a keeper of records, and a traveler to different parts of Atlantis bringing messages and new discoveries from one place to another. She was there when Atlantis sunk, and if there’s a fear of water in her current lifetime, it’s from when Atlantis sunk.

The Council closes by saying SoulPeace doesn’t need to become a doctor or a nurse to fulfill her desire to heal people. Just listening to people and feeling what they’re saying, with a simple touch or some well chosen words you can heal these people. You’ve done this before and can do it again.

Listen to the recording of our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for SoulPeace and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Do I Have a Connection to the Pleiades Constellation?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Marie, who asks if she has a connection to the Pleiades, which is a constellation in the night sky. Marie says she always felt an intuitive familiarity as she began learning about Pleiadian’s connection to humans.

The Council says Marie has been in contact with Pleiadians. In her current lifetime she planned to be part of their research and teaching about working from the heart and how to raise your energy.

Many Pleiadians have come to Earth and are very concerned about the evolution of people here. They’re here to try and teach more understanding about working with heart energy as opposed to the energy of the mind. They want to help us move forward and not experience the challenges they faced as they evolved.

Pleiadians come from the star cluster that’s closest to the Earth. Sometimes significant numbers of them visit Earth. Marie has agreed to work emotionally with Pleiadians, have them visit her in dreams, and work on her development. Any sort of meditation or practice that will raise Marie’s energy is needed right now.

When Marie was young there was a woman in her neighborhood who was from Pleiades and she watched Marie’s development. When Marie finishes this lifetime she’ll be going back to Pleiades to discuss her lifetime on Earth, how she helped others around her come to a more loving vibration, and make decisions from a place of joy in her heart.

The Council feels Marie will have additional contact with beings from Pleiades. Someone will briefly come along and correct her thoughts, or agree with her if she’s on the right path, or show her another perspective. Marie should be aware of this. The Pleiadians won’t announce who they are, but they’ll be around. The Council advises Marie to enjoy the next part of her life. She’ll learn a lot. The fact that Marie had the thought that she’s connected to Pleiades is part of her remembering.

Pleiadians can assume a human body while here on Earth, but they don’t live a full human lifetime. They come to fulfill a particular task and then they return to Pleiades.

The basic purpose of Pleiadians on Earth is to bring peace. They are aware of our problems and are concerned about peace for our planet. The Council asks all of us to ask for peace in our meditations and prayers, to look within ourselves and see how we behave. Is it always in a peaceful manner?

On a slightly different subject Marie says she’s learned recently that the Rh negative blood type represents approximately 15% of the human population on Earth and might indicate extraterrestrial DNA. She asks if there’s any truth to this.

At first The Council doesn’t answer Marie’s question directly. Instead they discuss the difficulties extraterrestrials with high energy have being in a human body. Many extraterrestrials that come to Earth have blood differences, lower back problems, sinus problems, and problems with their tailbone. And other extraterrestrials come and have no differences.

When Bob pressed The Council on the question of Rh negative blood types and extraterrestrials they said it’s not always an indication of an extraterrestrial. Some extraterrestrials have this blood type, but not everyone who has it is an extraterrestrial.

Why Did My Twin Flame Pass On?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Having Difficulty Believing in Life After Death

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, who says they’ve read all our blogs and listened to all the recorded sessions, read books on past lives, life between lives, and reincarnation, and has a difficult time believing all of it. They’re anxious to believe they’re a spirit having a physical experience, but they’re stuck thinking there’s biological death and nothing after that.

The Council says if there’s nothing after biological death, who do you think Bob is speaking with? We are spirits without bodies and this is evidence of life after biological death. Like you, we are made of energy that transforms and changes shape, but has no ending. When you leave your physical reality that you’ve created, you’ll go back into spirit, which is energy, light, and love.

The Council says that what you believe as you end this lifetime is what you’ll experience when you return to spirit. If you believe there’s nothing else after your body dies, you’ll experience this nothingness until you realize there’s more. As you experience nothing, your higher self is experiencing the life you’ve just completed and past lives you’ve come through, until you’re able to remember who you truly are. Then you’ll come out of your experience of nothingness and continue from there. Your beliefs are a big part of what you’ll experience.

The Council says proof of life after death exists in books about people who’ve had near death experiences and what they’ve seen and felt. But for ImportantOrNotBlog, they need to believe they’re a spirit in their physical body and you come to Earth to create. Every day you should concentrate on things you want. Ask for signs. Meditate. Read E-Squared, by Pam Grout, which will teach you how to ask for what you want. When you’re able to do this you’ll begin to feel the power of spirit within you and you’ll begin to get the idea you’re much more than the physical body you inhabit.

You’re made of light and energy which has created a physical body that you need to experience what you want in your current lifetime. When these experiences have been realized and there’s nothing else you want, you no longer need the body. You go on as spirit and the body will decay.

You can ask for dreams of people who’ve left their physical bodies for the last time. When you ask people or animals who’ve passed to come to you, they will, but you you have to allow this to happen. These dreams will feel different from a regular dream. You’ll feel the love these people or an animal are in spirit and you’ll remember this dream.

If you can create little miracles every day, like the ones suggested in the book E-Squared, you’ll open your intuition and allow clarity and understanding so you receive more and more proof there’s a life beyond the one you’re living now.

Listen to our entire 15-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for ImportantOrNotBlog and the rest of us on how we can believe in life after we leave our physical bodies, and let us know how you feel about it.

Son’s Anger Issues Related to Lifetime in Ancient Rome

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Lavender, who has an 8 year old boy with anger issues and she wonders why. The Council says this boy is hurting very deeply inside and at this point he doesn’t know how to feel love. He has a lot of mistrust and believes he must be alone.

The Council says your son is deeply affected by a lifetime in ancient Rome and he’s got a lot to heal from this lifetime. He was a slave who was taken to the arena where gladiators fought and was picked to be in charge of other slaves. This gave him safety, but turned the slaves he was friendly with against him.

He carries a lot of guilt from this Roman lifetime that he’s going to try and work out in his current lifetime. Your son has an authority problem in his current lifetime related to the lifetime in Rome, he has difficulty following orders, and he doesn’t like being told what to do.

The way you ask your son to do things will either create anger or give him understanding. Explain why, when you ask him to do the littlest thing and thank him for being a helpful part of your family. He needs to know he’s included and not alone. In his current lifetime he wants to know he can survive by being himself and being part of a family.

Lavender feels guilty for having this son when she was young and The Council says there is no use for this guilt. She needs to take part in helping her son heal the issues he’s brought into this lifetime.

Lavender asks The Council for advice on how to guide her son and The Council says their pre-birth agreement was that she would give him confidence and accept him no matter how he behaves in the moment. He needs an explanation how some of his behavior upsets her and why. And follow these explanations with reminders of the good he does.

Lavender says she recognizes in her son the same internal struggles she went through growing up. She is also resistant to authority figures. The Council suggests she explain to her son that she also doesn’t like to be told what to do. Maybe you can work on this together and bond over it. With understanding his mind will open, acceptance of how different things can be will begin to flood in, and clarity will come.

Lavender says she’s tried to teach her son things like the law of attraction, self empowerment, chakras, and meditation, and she says from this he became an elaborate storyteller. The Council says children have a great ability to astral project, remember their dreams, and travel to different dimensions. In your son’s case these stories aren’t made up. He is very psychic and intuitive and these are important tools for him as he grows.

The Council says many times your son is able to see from his third eye and he imagines other people can also do this. Encourage your son to talk to you about what he’s seeing and you’ll be surprised how he changes.

Treat your son with kindness, understanding, and love. Explain everything that’s asked of him. Explain when things annoy you and how you think about it and change it. Let him know how you want to teach him why he and everyone else is  here: to handle whatever challenges he faces, to acknowledge them, to work on them, and to turn them around with love.

Listen to our entire 18-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Lavender and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Whether to Contact a Guy She Had a Crush On Years Ago

This post answers questions from a reader named Jayden, who recently had three vivid dreams about a guy she had a significant crush on several years ago. She recently discovered he lives practically down the street from her even though they originally knew each other in high school in a town thousands of miles away. Jayden wonders if her spirit wants her to contact this man and see what happens or if this is a coincidence. She’s concerned he may not remember her. Thinking about this makes her feel like a teenager again.

The Council suggests Jayden see her current situation as a wonderful opportunity to help her connect with this man again. And they suggest that before she tries to make contact, she should imagine how she’d like this contact to take place, and imagine the response she receives.

The Council reminds us that there are no coincidences, and that Jayden’s higher self is bringing her to this point because this is something she desired when she was in high school. The Council interestingly says this desire doesn’t just disappear, and now it’s coming to her.

Jayden asks if this person symbolizes something in her life she needs to develop awareness of. The Council says it symbolizes her trying to create happiness, whether with this person on whatever level it can grow into; it is a happiness that was missing when she had a crush on him.

The Council says this is an opportunity for Jayden to have a “re-do”. She knows where this person lives and she can reach out an make contact with him and see what develops. It can blossom, or just be a friendship, but she’ll be able to experience a continuation of what she left behind.

Jayden wants to bring in either a new experience or have some closure with this man. And The Council says again, the way she creates this experience with her thoughts, her feelings, and her beliefs is the way it will happen. With the visualization The Council recommends, they say Jayden can approach this man.

The Council closes by saying that when they come to answer these questions, some people need specific answers that The Council sees are very important, some people need guidance, and some people need to be pushed to open another path within themselves so they’re able to find their own answers and grow.

The Council reminds us that we are powerful spirits and we have all the answers inside ourselves. They are here to help us shake up our reality and find those answers.

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

When Someone Close to You Passes from this Lifetime

In this post a reader who goes by the name GK asks The Council what happens to a soul contract when someone very close to you dies? The Council says whatever you pre-planned together in spirit or planned with this soul after you were born, when that person leaves their physical body for this lifetime that soul contract is complete.

GK says she thinks her sister was her soulmate and she asks The Council for some insight into how their relationship changes now that her sister has passed. The Council says when someone passes, the relationship doesn’t change. You are still very connected with the person who’s passed. You still communicate with this person in your dreams; or the person who’s passed is able to connect with you while you’re asleep.

You’re able to discuss what you’ve gone through. Did you fulfill your soul contract the way you wanted to? Or maybe you didn’t fulfill your contract the way you desired and you have the opportunity to work on this soul contract again in another lifetime.

People you are close to who have left this lifetime are helping you from spirit with the rest of what you’ve planned for your life. There’s a lot of love that goes back and forth between the two of you. Just because you don’t see this person with your physical eyes the relationship is still there.

GK says she experiences a lot of grief, but she likes The Council’s advice to remember a happy memory and says she’s going to try that. The Council says it’s also good to talk to the spirit throughout your day about what’s going on; they do hear you. When it’s possible and when you allow it, you will receive information from the spirit that’s moved on.

Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for GK and the rest of us, and let us know how you’re feeling about it.

Grandfather’s Passing

This post in inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, about death and the experience we have during the last days and hours of our lives. Her grandfather, who loved her deeply, is currently passing and she wonders what he’s experiencing while she’s with him in hospice.

The Council says each person has their own experience when it’s their time to pass. Her grandfather was connecting to others in spirit who passed on before him, and as this became clear to him he would come back into this reality. The Council describes it as going back and forth with one foot in each place.

Sarah asks The Council for a better understanding of what her grandfather was experiencing in his last hours, a better understanding of the connection the two of them shared, and what things will be like for him after he passes. The Council says where he is after his passing he only experiences joy and love. The releasing of her grandfather’s body and returning to spirit was a great experience for him.

The Council asks Sarah to review this lifetime with her grandfather. What has she learned from him? The Council believes Sarah and her grandfather have come together after a previous lifetime where there was just the two of them. They were uneducated and living off the land. In his current lifetime it was important for her grandfather to support his family so he didn’t continue the pattern from that past life where there wasn’t enough food and shelter.

The Council says as Sarah gets past the grief of her grandfather’s passing she can look for all the things in his life to be grateful for. They ask Sarah if she can take this perception of gratefulness and love, and give it to the people that are around her in her current lifetime. And can she find things to appreciate in each of these people before they pass on?

Sarah asks if it’s important to be with her grandfather as he passes on. The Council says each person is different. Some have no idea you are sitting by the bed for days because they’re in conversation with the spirit world and they’re resting before leaving the body. Some become conscious again and are very happy to have family present.

Sarah asks if he’s aware of what’s going on when he appears to be unconscious. The Council says most people are aware, even when you think they’re not. They can still hear. Sometimes the spirit is lifting out of the body and they’re able to see who’s in the room even though they appear unconscious.

Sarah asks if her grandfather is experiencing fear. The Council says they don’t see this for him. Some do experience fear until they see the light and the other people who have crossed over before them, and the fear leaves them. As they see spirits and angels and experience all the love that is coming towards them, there isn’t any fear going into the light.

Sarah asks if she’ll experience more of this lifetime with him, but in another form? The Council says to ask her grandfather for signs he’s around, and ask for dreams. Speak with him as if he’s still in his physical body and see what happens. As she tells her grandfather what’s going on in her life, see what happens around her and she’ll experience the connection is still there.

Sarah closes by saying she’d like to understand the end of life process from a spiritual point of view so she’ll be able to navigate it in the future. The Council says anyone who is getting ready to leave this particular lifetime, look for the light, think of people you have loved who have gone on before you, feel the energy of love, and it will carry you right into the spirit world.

Listen to our 8-minute session (below) to hear The Council’s answers for Sarah and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about them.

A Jealous Partner or Travel?

This post is inspired by a reader named Kelly who has several questions for The Council. First she asks about her 7-year old boy who has a physical tick disorder because Kelly and her son’s father (who she’s apparently separated from) have extremely different religious views – he’s a Jehovah’s Witness and she believes in magic.

The Council suggests keeping calmness around her son at this time and giving him more attention. He needs stability that he’s not feeling right now. Give him a peaceful environment and show him love. And it is very important to teach him about the many different religions in this world and experience their different beliefs. This is something he’ll use later in life.

Kelly had a miscarriage recently and she asks why, and if she’ll have another child. The Council says it was agreed upon in spirit if she, her partner, or her child had a change of heart about this pregnancy it would be acceptable to end it. In this case the soul of the child decided it wasn’t able to learn what it needed to learn by coming into Kelly’s life and decided to miscarry. And The Council says they do see another child is possible.

Kelly has had dreams about having a child and she asks how important they are. The Council says sometimes a dream has pieces of information about problems during your day. And sometimes when you have a dream you cannot forget and is crystal clear to you day after day as if you’re currently experiencing it, there is a very important message in that dream, and as you give this dream more attention you will learn what it’s trying to show you.

And Kelly asks about the man she’s currently involved with and whether she should give up her professional plans for travel because of her partner’s jealously. The Council suggests reviewing this relationship and deciding whether Kelly is truly happy in it or not. If she thinks they have the patience for each other, keep focusing on the happiness they can experience. And when the doubt comes, acknowledge it and refocus on how you’d like your life to be. Or does she prefer the freedom of traveling, learning, and perhaps bringing someone else into her life. Only she can make this decision.

Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council on Kelly’s questions to receive all their guidance, and let us know what you think.

Why is My Life So Full of Roadblocks?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Hadassah who feels like her life has gone backward since she married her husband. Hadassah says she and her husband were both successful before they married, but now they seem stuck and have become roadblocks for each other. Hadassah wonders why this is the case and asks The Council for guidance.

The Council starts by saying that Hadassah and her husband are experiencing a wonderful roadblock, but can see how she might be experiencing this negatively. They say she and her husband agreed in spirit to come into each other’s lives and help each other reach for their dreams. In discussions with her husband she should plan with him and help him come up with ideas to move in a direction he would like, and he should do the same for her.

The Council says as the two of them work to support each other’s desires, their energy becomes positive, there is more love in these situations, and they will see this roadblock disappear. Their desire was to come together and focus on each other rather than themselves, and to be of service to each other. They say Hadassah will experience much love when she focuses on the feeling of helping her husband move forward toward what he wants from life. And because her husband is focusing on her and helping her move forward, she will have success with new ideas she comes up with.

The Council encourages Hadassah to have fun with being supportive to her husband and vice versa. They say this situation is not about Hadassah falling apart because she’s with her husband and nothing is working out. That is what the both of them created in spirit to get to this point where they can find the love within themselves and help each other reach for their dreams. They say that’s how the two of them wanted to be of service in this lifetime.

The Council says it’s important to really listen to her husband and come up with genuine ideas that help him reach his goals, and he can do the same for her. Bring the fun and the love and the joy into this and it will move much quicker than they think.

The Council says Hadassah and her husband are at a turning point where they can learn to be there for each other and want each other’s desires to be fulfilled. And The Council promises they will see a gigantic change when they bring the love from spirit into their lives and experience the feeling of really wanting each other to succeed.

Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council to answer Hadassah’s questions. We feel there’s a lot of guidance in this session for anyone in a relationship.

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

Using audio playlists to publish more frequent posts

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

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

Ask The Council in-person group sessions

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

A typical group session

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

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

This group session

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

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

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

There is a growing awareness

What About This Idea There’s More Than One Reality?

This post is an introduction to the concepts of multiple realities and multiple dimensions — subjects that were briefly introduced to us a couple months ago in a session with The Council to answer a question from Diana about a relationship where two people seem to have opposing desires. Here are some of The Council’s references to multiple realities that got us thinking about this subject and how an understanding of it  might  improve your day-to-day human experience.

“But if you go deeper into what many people are not understanding yet, in all of our realities that simultaneously exist, when you ask for this [experience] to be in your life and you line up with that vibration, it is experienced.”

“So you are always given what you ask for, but there are many dimensions. And not to make it too difficult, we try to get your focus to be on creating the feeling within you that you would have with this [experience] that you desire.”

“By making it as real as possible you will find the feeling within you. The joy [and] the happiness that you feel experiencing it as if it is already done – that feeling makes it real in another reality. It is happening. That happening in another reality brings it closer to coming into your existence.

“By just having the thoughts, it is created. But experiencing it as if it is already done makes it already done in a reality, in a dimension, that is closer to your human existence.

“And so each time this memory, this desire is experienced, the vibration of those thoughts and feelings gives the universe (so to speak) the power of creating this in your reality – to bring it in.”

–The Council
