Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Learning About Spirituality, but Has Fears and Doubts

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Lola, who’s been trying to learn about spirituality, but now she’s filled with fears, doubts, and questions that override the feelings of joy and peace she previously felt from learning about spirit.

The Council says the most important thing for Lola is to learn about herself. They advise her to meditate on the fact that she is spirit. As spirit you volunteer to come into this lifetime and work through different lessons and experiences to help yourself grow and to help others grow.

We all have our work that we come here to do. Everything you come here to do is decided on before you come into your current lifetime. You bring spirits with you that you’ve been with before. They come into your life to help you, or to make your life harder so you learn and grow. There’s nothing fearful in that.

Lola pre-planned in spirit before coming into this lifetime to experience these fears, doubts, and questions so she’d be able to work through them. The #1 purpose of every spirit is to come into a lifetime and bring love into whatever you’re creating. So if you’ve come into this lifetime with obstacles, you’ve asked for these obstacles so you can find your way through them and bring love into them. Take the fear you experience and turn it into love.

In every situation there are only two choices: fear and love. In which direction do you want to go? As you focus on love, you’ll find more experiences coming your way that will show you more love, show you happiness and kindness, and help you open up to who you are as a spiritual being. If you focus on your fears, you’ll bring more of these fearful experiences into your life and have to work through them to change your beliefs and what you’re experiencing around these fears.

We’re all coming from one source of energy, which is love. Each time you come into this reality you create another part of who you are as a spiritual being. When you return to spirit, everything you’ve gone through, the good and the bad, you take back with you and everyone in spirit learns and grows from your experience. We’re all one, and yet there’s the individual part of you, and that part changes and grows with each incarnation you have.

Lola says there’s a feeling we can’t escape from our creation of bad experiences. The Council says you can always escape from experiences by what you focus on. The more you focus on bad experiences, the more you’ll bring them to you. You need to begin to understand you’re a powerful spirit. You’re here to change things for the better. You are the complete creator of everything that goes on in your reality. No one else can create for you.

When you learn the most powerful tool you have is choice, and you think everything is scaring you and you don’t know what to do, what if you just try to see your situation differently? What if you try to feel happier and calmer? Beginning to do this will show you what you can change. There’s a positive aspect to your fears.

Know that you chose to experience these fears so you can change them and grow from them. You’re the creator. How can you change the things that are frightening you? Use your imagination and see things turning out better. See yourself safe. See yourself smiling and happy. If you can hold onto these images and feel what you’re imagining, you’ll see your life change. That is what you came into this lifetime to do.

In a past life in ancient Egypt you were one of the priests that taught children about energy, how you control your thoughts, and how you create your future. As a loving teacher you couldn’t understand why some of the children weren’t able to easily understand what you were teaching because it was so simple for you. So in your current lifetime you wanted to experience what these slower children were going through. You chose to make things harder for yourself by not knowing how to turn obstacles around into love with your mind. As you try these things again it will come to you easily because it’s something you’ll remember from this past life.

Lola asks if we’re able to experience evil so deeply that we forget our true nature as spiritual beings? The Council says, yes, if you focus on evil. Thinking thoughts like, evil cannot touch me, evil is an illusion, everything is from the light, I am safe, and I am love can be beneficial.

The Council advises Lola to learn about the chakras, their colors, their energy, and what they do. Surround yourself in white light when you wake up and before you go to sleep.

There isn’t good energy and bad energy. There’s only energy. What you do with this energy, how you think about it, what you want to create with this energy makes it good or bad. What do you want to do with energy? You’re here to learn how to change your thought, your situations, your experiences around you with your mind.

Lola says she can’t picture herself free of fear in the future, even if she’s surrounded by loving people. How can she overcome her fears and doubts if she doesn’t understand everything fully?

The Council says when you have these fears and negative thoughts, be still and acknowledge that you’re having these fears and thoughts and then ask yourself how you can turn them around and reach for the light within you. Look for a pinhead of light in your heart and concentrate on that light growing until it comes out of your chest and puts you in a capsule of loving energy. If you’re working to find this light within you, you won’t have time to focus on doubt and negativity.

Lola closes by saying she feels like she’s deviated too far from her soul purpose and The Council says this will never happen. You’ll find a way through these obstacles, whether it’s the easy way or some illusion that you create. And if you feel you haven’t succeeded, you’ll come back to another reality and try to find your way through these obstacles again.

You’re here to understand how you create with your mind and your feelings, and how you can change anything to be beautiful, to have loving energy, and to help you grow. That’s your purpose. You’ll never stray from this purpose. Whatever obstacle you create, it’s just you trying to push you to learn how to work through this obstacle.

Where Does Evil Come From?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Diana who says that The Council always reminds us we are spirit and we are love and asks where evil comes from, why does it exist, and why would someone choose to experience being evil in a physical body?

The Council’s initial response was that evil is created from our thoughts and beliefs. When I (Bob) said we might need a little more than that, they elaborated.

The Council says we are here to experience any reality we wish to learn from and some of us choose to experience negativity and evil until we realize we created it and we have the ability to change it. Look at these situations as opportunities to learn and grow.

The Council says everything we experience in this physical reality that we consider evil is only here because we wanted the experience of changing it into something more loving. You want to remember who you really are as a spiritual being in a physical body and you have the ability to change evil and bring love into these situations.

When Diana comments there are some people who don’t appear to have a soul or a drop of love in them, The Council replies that everyone has a soul and everyone is love, but what keeps them from experiencing this is they have forgotten who they truly are. The challenge is to remember this.

When Diana asks how someone who manifests evil can be spirit and love The Council reminds us that spirit and human are one being who loves itself so much it allows us to experience whatever we choose while in the human body, and find our way back to who we are as spirit.

A Question about Portals – an Answer About Creating Your Reality

During a recent session with The Council, at the end of a discussion on ancient historical records that were predicted will be found near the Sphinx in Egypt, I (Bob) asked why people who’ve been looking for these records for a century or more have not been able to find them. The Council gave 2 interesting reasons. First:

“Because much of what will be discovered will be powerful information that, at this time in history, we are not ready for; it would be misused.

“And so as spirit evolves and brings what it has planned – more love – and peace begins to be more present, and [there is] more understanding and more unity between all of the peoples, all of the nations that are here, then the documents will be released.”

–The Council
(The formatting above throughout this post represents The Council’s comments during our session. Text [in brackets] in these quotations has been added to improve readability and clarity when this seems useful.)

When I asked for clarification about the process of releasing these documents, and how something that doesn’t appear findable can be found, The Council gave the second reason.

“We believe our friend, Esther [Hicks], that channels Abraham, has explained it very nicely when she lost her gold pen, and yet it was there all the time.

“So when the belief that it is not lost, and that this information is there and it is ready to be discovered… when someone feels they will make this great discovery and work towards it, it will be discovered. It is all there.”

Powerful Information

In a session a few years ago, The Council suggested Atlantis was destroyed by the misuse of power (this seems consistent with other sources of information on Atlantis), and I asked if the potential for misuse of the power in the undiscovered records is anything like what contributed to the destruction of Atlantis.

“Yes. It was suggested because that also needs to be recognized.

“When the information [is discovered] on how to utilize this power, and how the power is not just in these crystals or in this form of vibration that is conjured up, the truth will come forward that the power comes from within, in each person.

“And so that is, as what would be said in your time, very heavy information.”

The Council imitated the way people sometimes exaggerate their voice in a low tone when they refer to heavy information, which I found very humorous. Ordinarily I’d be probably be interested in asking for more information about the power of the information in the undiscovered records, about the crystals, and about conjured vibration, but the thought that came to me was a conversation with Cynthia earlier in the day about a client of hers who had lived in a house he described as seriously haunted.

What is a Portal?

Cynthia mentioned she received guidance for her client that the house was some sort of portal for disturbing energies that were coming into his physical reality from other dimensions. But neither of us understood this very well, and I found myself asking The Council what they can tell us about portals. The rest of this post describes a highly informative discussion that touches on the subjects of multiple realities, evil, rituals for protection, love, Satan, and most importantly, how your vibration brings what you experience into your reality.
