Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Am I On the Right Track with My New Relationship?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who says she’d like to understand where she’s at with her spiritual development and current events in her life. Sarah says she’s done a lot of work on herself and feels very connected to herself and spirit. But she’s always concerned she’s coming from her ego, fooling herself, and making choices for the wrong reasons.

The Council asks Sarah if her concern is coming from her head or her heart. If you truly believe you’ve done a lot of work on yourself and you’re growing, your doubting would be an old pattern you’re here to learn about and let go of. When you need to make a decision get out of your head and into your heart, ask the question, then go into your solar plexus and see how you feel. Your higher self will communicate to you through the way your feel in your solar plexus. Was your doubting and the idea of being in your ego taught to you by someone? Why aren’t you relaxed enough to think, I’ve made a change and learned different things. It’s time for you to come to a place of trust and being at peace within yourself.

Sarah says a large change may be coming into her life due to a recent serendipitous meeting. She had feelings of home and recognition when she met this person although they’re very different. Creating a relationship will have many obstacles and she’s curious what’s happening here. Does she feel so sure about this person because the relationship is pre-planned?

The Council says the situation involves two spirits recognizing each other. That’s the familiar feeling. It was pre-planned to meet each other, to come into each other’s life and be helpful, but it wasn’t pre-planned to be a romantic relationship. A romance is still possible if you both wish to take your relationship in this direction. But The Council repeats what was pre-planned was to come into each other’s lives and be helpful to one another. You will recognize each other by a familiar deja-vu feeling. Sarah says she can’t see a way she’s fooling herself, but is she. The Council replies, not at all.

Sarah says she feels confident she wants to create a relationship with this person, but it’s going to be a little daunting due to the distance involved. She asks if they’re on the right track and if these obstacles will resolve themselves? The Council says you’re on the right track by meeting and recognizing a familiar feeling. In your friendship see where this takes you. What do you bring to each other? What are you learning? Then see if both of you want more than the friendship, or is it just a coming together to learn about life.

Your relationship will be what you want it to be, but it’s necessary for both of you to do the inner work. And it’s necessary, as you create whatever kind of friendship or relationship you desire, to come from the vibration of joy, of happiness, of positively knowing you can have whatever you desire by visualizing it. Go slowly with this relationship and enjoy what you have together.

You are on your path and will find your way by being excited you’re in this reality. And no matter what you created, whether it’s something to be grateful for or if it’s challenging, it’s all wanted and you’ll find your way through it and grow. Help will be there. You’ll love yourself and you’ll go on.

What About the Ego?

Recently we read Anita Moorjani’s bestselling and spiritually uplifting book, Dying To Be Me, on a near death experience (NDE) she had after a 4 year struggle with cancer. We feel so inspired by this book that we did a session with The Council to learn more about NDEs, and we’re in the process of writing a post describing that session.

While working on that post we came across something in the Questions & Answers chapter of Anita’s book on the subject of Ego that we’d like to share here. The subject of Ego often comes up in spiritual discussion groups we attend, and in online discussions, books, and articles on spirituality. There appear to be lots of different beliefs about the ego: what it is, what it isn’t, it’s influence on your spiritual growth, how to deal with it, etc. Anita’s answer to the following question about ego is one of the most satisfying we’ve come across, and feels very much in harmony with what The Council is teaching. For a good understanding of Anita’s answer it may help to have read her book, but we hope you get the idea and find it helpful.

Question for Anita

“Most people on a spiritual path believe that the ego impedes spiritual growth and that we’re supposed to shed the ego. Why aren’t you advocating this?”

Anita’s Answer

“Because if you deny the ego, it will push back against you harder. The more you reject something, the more it fights back for its own survival. But when you can completely love your ego unconditionally and accept it as part of how you express in this life, you’ll no longer have a problem with it. It won’t impede your growth – on the contrary,  it will be an asset.

“We’re all born with an ego – it’s a natural part of who we are here. We’re only completely without it in death. Fighting against this during life only creates more self-judgement. Plus, only when we love our ego unconditionally are we able to accept everyone else’s. This is when it stops being an issue, and your humility and magnificence really shine through.”

—From Dying To Be Me, by Anita Moorjani, p.173, published by Hay House ©2012

If you believe you have an ego that’s interfering with your spiritual growth, Anita appears to be saying that if you practice loving your ego unconditionally you will have a much more spiritually satisfying experience than if you look for ways to minimize your ego. This makes lots of sense to us. In other words, if you’re concerned your ego is causing you problems – spiritually or otherwise – consider the possibility these difficulties are more likely the result of your beliefs about your ego and your attitude towards it than something inherent in the nature of the ego.
