Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Who Dictated the Ten Commandments to Moses?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Keith, who simply asks: Who dictated the Ten Commandments to Moses?

Ordinarily we like to summarize The Council’s guidance for those of you who don’t feel like listening to the audio recording. Sometimes we use the summary to try and clarify what The Council says during a session.

In the case of our session with The Council to answer Keith’s question, we’re concerned that our words won’t do justice to the guidance The Council provides and we suggest you listen to the 5-minute audio recording of this session.

This session highlights the idea that we all create the reality we experience with our beliefs. It talks about soul group agreements. And The Council reminds us that as a spirit we can create anything.


Listen to the 5-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Keith and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask your own question.

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.

Does a Physical Body Kept Alive By Artificial Means Have a Soul?

This post answers some interesting questions for The Council from a reader named, Jhendi, who asks if people who are brain dead and being kept alive by artificial means still have their soul attached to their body.

The Council begins by saying bodies that are being kept alive by ventilators are the result of wishes of people around that person. When a body has a brain that’s not working on it’s own, it’s a sign the soul within the body has completed what it needed to do in this lifetime and is ready to leave. Part of the soul remains with the body until there is closure for everyone involved and family or friends are able to take the body off artificial life support, but part of the soul is also able to travel outside the body. The soul has the ability to revisit the current lifetime or past lifetimes in order to begin creating a new life.

Jhendi asks if the soul is able to reincarnate while the body is being kept alive, but the brain is considered dead? The Council says the soul is able to have part of itself go into a new body while a part of the soul remains with the body being kept alive by artificial means to help people handle their grief.

Jhendi asks what types of lessons are learned in these situations where a body is kept alive artificially?

The Council says whatever needs to be learned for each individual involved. Sometimes the soul of the person being kept alive artificially wants the experience of being in one body and creating a different life. Sometimes a body is kept alive artificially so that people around it can learn to deal with death in different ways. Often the soul is there to teach other souls how to release and move closer to their faith. Some souls hang around because there are people involved who don’t understand what’s going on and they’re angry, and until these people begin to work through this anger the soul will remain with the body.

The Council adds that while a body is kept alive artificially the soul is able to return to spirit (while the soul is still attached to the body) and visit with their guides and begins to send healing energy to the humans involved in this passing.

And The Council ends by reminding us there is no death or final ending, only a different way of living. As you leave the life you’ve created, you open to so much more, whether it’s experiencing more love than you ever had in that life, or it’s perceiving colors, tastes, and smells you’re not able to experience when you’re in the human body. There’s no ending to the consciousness of that life or all the lives you had before that life. You’re just going on to another reality that you wish to create.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council to receive all their guidance for Jhendi and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Spiritual Aspects of Childhood Cancer

This post answers questions from a reader named Jolanda, who recently had a young boy in her family diagnosed with cancer. They’re a health-conscious family and they are in shock over the diagnosis. Jolanda asks The Council to shed some light on the spiritual aspects of cancer and particularly childhood cancer.

The Council begins by saying that cancer is a disease of fear, and it’s created for many different reasons.

They say in spirit we create many different challenges for ourselves when we are in our physical bodies. Some of these challenges are for ourselves, and some are to teach the people around us.

Sometimes we choose (as spirit) to experience cancer because we desire to teach on a larger level. We want to teach our parents or our family about fear, hope, and believing there is more than the physical.

As someone experiences cancer, how they face it is important. Often there’s a desire to go through it quickly and to show other people you have the ability to heal the cancer.

The Council says the main reason someone gets cancer is their spirit has either chosen to experience fear, or the spirit will be calm and the people around them will experience fear.

The Council says every challenge we experience in our lifetime is for the purpose of teaching everyone involved to turn towards love.

In response to Jolanda’s question about what the patient and his family need to learn from this experience, The Council says that in addition to learning to choosing love, they can begin to learn about faith, and that we are so much more than our physical bodies. They add that understanding we are greater than our physical body is the main reason many spirits are choosing to channel through people who are open to this.

The Council says you can cure yourself with your beliefs. You can cure yourself by knowing you are vibration and you can change everything with your thoughts. Know you are spirit and you are love. Love always conquers fear.

The Council says Jolanda’s relative came into this lifetime with the intention of curing the cancer. He should be shown love, not pity. He should be encouraged to feel happy, to enjoy himself, and love every one around him, including himself. This will bring him into the vibration of love that he needs to heal the cancer.

The Council says this is an experience for the family to go through, and everyone can pull their thoughts together and believe in the best outcome. Know that the vibration that heals the body comes from the vibration of love. Everyone around has volunteered (in spirit) to be part of this experience. Be upbeat. Know the situation is able to change for the better. As everyone in the family sees this child getting better, it must happen.

The Council says if there’s sadness and heaviness around the boy with cancer and he begins to think that way, he may not be able to overcome the cancer. Jolanda should be positive about her relative’s recovery, and she should feel it and send this vibration to the child. This will help him through this challenge.

The Council closes with some interesting thoughts about how every person has their own experience of the child with cancer. They recommend everyone in the family see and feel the boy getting better, and feel love and happiness that the child has the ability to do this.

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

Creating What You Desire

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who explains to The Council they’re convinced they can create the reality they desire, but they get depressed when things  seem like they’re working out and then don’t turn out the way they’d like.

Creating what you desire

The Council says when you give up because things aren’t happening exactly when and how you want them to, this makes it harder to create what you desire. They recommend staying in the energy of faith, love, and your desires; stay with your imagination and the feeling of what it would be like to already have what you want. The Council says by staying with the energy of what you truly desire this indicates your faith in your ability to create what you want.

Anonymous asks The Council for advice on their difficulty dealing with people, and they say the expectation they will be disappointed is hanging around and they carry this with them in their relationships. The Council says it’s part of Anonymous’s purpose in this lifetime to face this challenge and to learn how to create the kind of vibration they need to be in and the kind of thoughts and feelings they need to have.

The Council says in their current lifetime they wanted to experience going from having nothing to having everything they desire. And they say Anonymous has already created what they desire in non-physical vibration. Now they need to learn how to bring their desires into their physical reality.

The Council asks if Anonymous is giving them self  enough love. Unless they love them self  how can they receive this love from others. The Council recommends sitting daily and asking what they truly desire at this moment and imagine you have this. As you create with your thoughts and imagine it’s already in your life and you’ll see these things begin to come to you.

Other lifetimes

The Council says the other lifetime that affects Anonymous the most with relationships took place in a village that was under attack and everyone in the village planned to leave the village for safety. You decided to go your own way rather than go with everyone else and you died. You realize now that cutting yourself off from the others wasn’t the answer and you need to learn to feel safe connecting with people. Companionship in your current lifetime will help you heal what you lost in this other lifetime in this village.

Career

Anonymous ask what career they will be most successful, and The Council advises any career that gets them to focus on other people is the direction to go right now. The Council feels there’s a lot of work for Anonymous to do, but they also feel this can be accomplished.

The Council mentions starting a hobby that gets Anonymous involved with other people and as they help these people Anonymous will change how they feel about them self, they will grow, and they’ll be led down the path they’ve planned in spirit before they came into this lifetime.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council (below) and hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us.

Should I Move to Ireland with My Daughter?

This post answers questions about moving to Ireland from a reader named D. Back in July, D. mentioned in an earlier question for The Council that her heart keeps pointing her to Ireland, a place she knows nothing about, and The Council encouraged her to visit.

Now she’s returned from that visit and says she connected to the people and the land in a way she’s never felt before. Her heart is telling her to move, but her mind has a lot of doubt and fear about leaving the US, and she’s raising a child on her own. What if she goes and finds she can’t provide an environment of stability for her child?

The Council says this longing is D’s spirit telling her she has an adventure to go through in Ireland. She needs to be there to experience a different kind of life. When she thinks about this move and her heart is full of joy, she won’t be lead astray by her guidance. If she’s created a stable environment for her child in the US, The Council says she knows how to accomplish this and it won’t matter where she is.

The Council points out D. has created her connection to Ireland, and with her desire to go back she can create a way to make this happen. Her thoughts and feelings about going back and having a brand new life will bring into this reality what she’s creating in the reality of her mind.

The Council asks D. to trust and do the work of thinking and feeling her way back to Ireland, and things will come together that make this move possible. They remind D. the universe supported her on her first trip and will continue to support her in finding a way to make a return possible.

D. raises her concern about how this move will affect her child. The Council asks if D. feels Ireland will bring her much happiness, and if her child experiences her being happy, does she understand her child will also experience this happiness.

D. says her mind is pulling her in one direction and her heart and soul are pulling her in another. And The Council tells her they feel she’s already received the answer to her questions by the way she felt when she was in Ireland the first time. They say the challenge of doubt and fear is there for D. to change it into something more loving. Can she acknowledge her doubt and say she’ll make the trip anyway? By taking that leap of faith she will begin to see this desire come into her life.

Those of you familiar with The Council’s guidance from our other posts may think it a little unusual for them to make such a hearty recommendation. Ordinarily we find their guidance is more balanced. So when I said to them it sounds like they’re encouraging D. to revisit Ireland, they enthusiastically respond, “Why not?” Why would D. deny herself the prospect of another joyful visit and perhaps a permanent move there? And that was the end of our session.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session with The Council below for their full guidance.

You Are Creating Your Own Reality

A Thought for the Day

You are creating your own reality.
Your reality does not just happen to you,
As it is commonly understood.

As you begin to ask for what you want,
Your faith that you deserve it,
Your focus of attention on it,
And your imagination of it,
Will attract what you desire
Into your reality.

—The Council

Believing in a Loving and Benevolent God When Life Sucks

This post is a response to a question for The Council from Chris, who wants to know how she can believe a loving and benevolent God exists when her life feels like evidence of the opposite. Chris asks how she can learn to believe and know she is heard and is important when she’s unable to perceive the presence of a loving and benevolent God in her life.

What Is God Like?

Among people who acknowledge the existence of God or a higher power (92% of Americans according to a university survey) beliefs tend to vary about what God is. According to this survey, beliefs in what God is like tend to fall into the following four types: Authoritarian (31%), Benevolent (25%), Critical (16%), and Distant (23%).

Where is God?

Whether we think of God in one or more (or none) of these four ways, we often think of God as being “out there” somewhere—like in heaven or throughout the Universe—rather than inside of us. But The Council advises all of us that it’s important to find God within ourselves—in our own consciousness. This can be a difficult concept to grasp if we’re accustomed to thinking of God as outside of us and we’re used to looking for evidence of God’s existence out in the world.
