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.

Listen to the audio recording of our 18-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Lola and the rest of us. This is a longer session, but we feel the time is worth it, and let us know what you feel about this session.

Problem Being Estranged From Her Family

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kali, who’s concerned about being estranged from most of her family. She says the estrangement feels terrible, but she hasn’t found a way to reconcile with her family. Kali asks if there’s a soul contract reason for this estrangement and how she can move forward. And she asks for advice on how she can reconcile with her family, or how she can be peaceful with the estrangement.

The Council says each person in this family is on their own path and wants to learn different lessons. You’re all here to learn about love and forgiveness.

This family does have a soul contract: it’s to come together and allow each other to create the atmosphere they need to learn.

You wanted to figure out who you are as a spiritual being, and see each person in your family from a spiritual perspective. Each person has a hardship and one or more lessons they have to go through. As you begin to see your family from this more spiritual perspective, what goes on in the family begins to change.

What has this estrangement from your family done for you? How do you see yourself in this situation? Do you feel less than because your family isn’t close? Do you blame yourself for certain things? Are you dealing with anger? If you’re going through any of these feelings, why are you taking on these negative thoughts? Change the perception of who you are by focusing on yourself and what you’re learning from each person in your family.

You’re family has chosen to come together, not so much to learn about everyone else, but to learn a little bit about everyone else. Now take the focus and put it on yourself. Your family situation was created for each family member to go deep inside themselves and see what you think about yourself according to how you’re being treated by the family. Are you feeling abandoned? How do you feel about all the fighting and verbal abuse? Do these feelings make you feel less than the spirit you are? You’re still part of all spirits that are here trying to create and learn.

As you figure out who you truly are as a spiritual being by watching the other members of your family and understanding, even if just a little bit, that it’s difficult for everyone and your identity doesn’t hinge on how your family treats you. You’re a brave spirit who came to this reality at this time to learn about yourself.

The agreement between the souls in your family was to learn about the family dynamic, learn about forgiveness, learn about love, and learn about abandonment and hurtful feelings. In the middle of this learning, begin to remember you’re all spirits wanting to learn about these feelings, and then put the focus on yourself, especially when you feel the estrangement can’t be fixed.

What is your part in this family? It’s just a small part of who you are as a spiritual being. Can you look at the people in your family with kindness by allowing them to be who they are? Each person in your family has chosen to be there to learn about themselves. Some will learn and some won’t.

Appreciate who you truly are as a spiritual being, not only in your family, but with friends and coworkers. Are you taking the love we’re here to bring into this reality and use it wherever you can, whether it’s accepted or not?

In your family the dynamic that was set up is like a keg of dynamite, but this is a good thing. The family didn’t come in and say they’d all get mad at each other. They came in and said, some how we’ll find a way to learn about ourselves. We’ll do whatever is necessary for as long as necessary to look at each other, and maybe after a while feel some sadness that there’s no connection. And then they’ll question the sadness and begin to wonder how that can begin to change. And when the desire to change is there and the true looking at one’s self begins to happen, changes must come.

The courageous souls that these family members are, came together to learn about themselves. What they’ve created is a situation where there’s understanding that everyone in the family will eventually accept what’s going on, accept their own behavior, and then move on from that behavior. As they move on, the family may not change, but you’re all wonderful spirits who have chosen to help each other grow by learning about yourselves.

It wasn’t your agreement that members of the family will do one thing or another and then all make up and come together. What was arranged was that family members will learn about themselves by being in this family. They will try very hard to bring love into this family dynamic and grow from this. No matter how this family situation turns out, everything with the family does not have to be resolved. Because the family members allow each other to go on one’s own path, this creates a great spiritual leap.

It can be difficult to accept a lack of resolution for the family situation. But when you come into this reality and say: let me learn about myself no matter what goes on around me; let me have the understanding and calmness to allow everyone to deal with what they need to deal with in their own way; and as I learn about myself and begin to change, and my energy begins to become lighter, it will reach each family member to help them on their path. This is what you’ve agreed upon.

In spirit, when you learn about yourself and you search for ways to handle situations with love, without blame, and accepting the behavior of others, the vibration will change and you must grow. It was with this thought that this family has come together.

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

Difficulty Being an Empath

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Darla, who’s hypersensitive, especially about spirit, and this has caused her lifelong anxiety and to become introverted.

The Council says when you’re an empath (which means you’re highly intuitive and feel things that other people are feeling and thinking), you’ve brought this gift into this lifetime to learn how to use it. By meditating and grounding yourself you’ll learn how you feel on a day-to-day basis.

You’re here to learn how to use this gift and how to recognize what is you and what is someone else’s feelings. Once you begin to do this you’ll feel a lot of relief and joy. When you’re able to tell the difference between your feelings and other people’s, and you are centered in your heart, you’ll feel more comfortable with this gift.

Darla says she’s struggled with how to protect herself from absorbing other people’s feelings and still remain true to herself. She says it’s difficult for her to figure out which emotions are hers and which emotions belong to other people.

The Council advises Darla to first learn to feel what her emotions are, and this comes with meditation, or sitting quietly and just going within her heart and asking to feel who she truly is. What’s her vibration like? Stay with that feeling and forget about other people while she does this. It takes focus to learn how to use this energy. Take your thoughts into your heart and ask to feel what you are feeling.

Darla asks The Council why she chose to be empathic during this lifetime. The Council says in a different lifetime Darla had a friend who was empathic, but Darla wasn’t able to understand how her friend felt. Because of her great love for this friend, Darla asked to be an empath in this lifetime so she could feel what it felt like, understand it, and learn to work with it.

The Council advises Darla to learn what her energy feels like. Once she learns that, the rest is easy. Once she’s aware of what she’s feeling, no matter where she is or how many people are around, this will give her a boundary. She can go into her heart and feel what she’s feeling. When she feels other feelings, she’ll know they’re not her feelings. The most important thing is to learn about herself.

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

Should I Stay In My Marriage or Leave with My Child?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name SoulPeace, who says she needs to choose between staying in a marriage that isn’t working out well and trying to make it better, or walk out of the marriage with their child.

The Council asks SoulPeace what part they’re playing in this marriage? Is she adding to the difficulties that are coming up? When you step back and look at this relationship the major question is, why isn’t the marriage working? What do you need from this marriage and what are you bringing to it? Do you feel the love you felt in the beginning of this relationship?

The choice is always yours whether to leave the marriage or stay with it, but the work must begin within you first. Look at what you have without blame, then try to decide what you’d like your marriage to look like. If you can focus on the marriage working and be open to the positive changes, then you can make this marriage work. As you begin to change how you treat your husband, how you speak to him, and how you appreciate the little things he might do, The Council says you can stay in this marriage lovingly.

SoulPeace says she’s always been scared of living on her own and taking on all the responsibilities of caring for their child. She doesn’t feel the love for her husband the last few years. The Council asks if she’s able to partner with him in bringing up their child? Are they able to get together and have fun with this child so it has a more loving life? When you’re able to come together and take the focus off what the other person is doing wrong and you’re in the vibration of love and joy even though the focus is your child, you have the ability to make the marriage better.

SoulPeace says she feels like she’s with her husband because it’s the more traditional option and she’s scared to live on her own. She finds it difficult to forget the things that happened in the past. The Council reminds SoulPeace that it’s a choice to take the focus off the past. When do you let go of this? When do you begin looking forward instead of backward? Have you learned from the mistakes you’ve made? What have you done to prevent these mistakes from continuing? If you decide to stay in this marriage, but continue with blaming your husband and stay in the vibration of anger and hurt, you won’t be able to change your future so you have a happy life.

If you decide you want to save your marriage, try thinking the reason you’ve gone through the dissatisfaction in your marriage is that you and your husband agreed to come to this point and then ask yourself if you can turn your marriage around. If you decide to leave, what are the steps you’d take to support your child and live on your own just the two of you? See this how you want it to be rather than out of fear. Visualize how leaving could work for you.

SoulPeace says she feels like she’s coming back to the same point in the relationship over and over. She’d like closure to this and to move ahead in any direction which is best for her and her child. The Council asks SoulPeace if she’s truly looking for closure or does she want to fix the marriage?

To start closure The Council suggests SoulPeace imagine where she and her child would go and how you’d live. If you want to change your marriage for the better The Council suggests letting go of the past. Maybe your husband doesn’t know how to undo what was done or fix the marriage, but perhaps you can discuss moving forward. Can you leave the past in the past?

Discuss how you’d like your marriage to be. What does your husband want the marriage to be like going forward? When memories come of what your husband did or didn’t do in your marriage that hurt you, acknowledge the hurt and then say goodbye to those thoughts. After a while those thoughts won’t come as frequently. Yes these things happened, but now you have an opportunity to create the future differently. You have the power to refocus on a happier thought and create the life you desire.

The Council closes by saying SoulPeace has a lot of work to do and a wonderful journey in whichever direction she chooses.

Listen to the entire 10-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for SoulPeace and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Spiritual Reason for a Stillbirth Pregnancy

This post answers questions from a reader named Thuy, who says she feels devastated after having a stillborn baby last November. Though she already has two children that keep her going, she misses the stillborn child dearly. She doesn’t know why the baby wasn’t born alive and still feels lost and confused. Thuy asks The Council for the spiritual reason her baby wasn’t able to make it into this lifetime alive.

The Council says the spirit of this child wasn’t sure it wanted to come in at this time. It wasn’t the right time for this soul to be born in order to learn the lessons it wanted to learn, and so it made the choice to be stillborn. This was an option everyone in Thuy’s family agreed to on a spiritual level. There are things that need to be settled within the family before this spirit can come in and learn what it wishes to learn.

The Council feels this spirit has agreed to come back to Thuy when it’s ready to learn what it wants to learn and if Thuy’s family is able to offer an environment conducive to this learning. Look within your family. Are things calm? Are you okay financially? Is everyone getting along? Is it the right time? These are the reasons this birth did not happen at this time.

Thuy says after the stillbirth she doesn’t feel good about anything. She adds that her husband is trying to sell his business because of an indifference with his partner and she’s worried about the family’s financial future. The Council says these worries can be part of the reason this soul decided not to be born at this time.

Thuy says she used to know what she wanted in her life, but now she’s not sure what will make her happy. The Council says this could also be a reason the spirit of her child chose not to be born at this time. Thuy may need to be more sure of herself and what she’d like to do.

The Council says if Thuy wishes the spirit to return to her in a future pregnancy, now is the time to work on herself and her family. See what you’d like to do, where you’d like to live, and what your husband will do for an income. Focus on these decisions and feel comfortable with them. Do not focus on having this soul come back to you. It will return without focusing on this. Focus on your life and what’s happening right now.

The Council says if Thuy is unsure what she wants right now, go into the vibration of happiness. Play with her two children and laugh with them. Think of your own childhood and anything that brought you joy. Get yourself in the vibration of love and happiness and everything will fall into place.

The Council recommends doing whatever makes Thuy feel good. Stretch yourself and what you believe in. Meditate and you will receive answers and signs for the direction to take your life in. Relax and let in any thought that feels like fun. Bring in the vibration of fun and something will come along that gives you a new beginning. Always be ready to learn something new.

Before Thuy came into this lifetime she was interested in having a great adventure. She wanted to jump around a lot – either move physically or travel. Try lots of different things and don’t be stuck in a single thing. It’s her desire to open to many different joyous experiences.

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

Learning Empathy Through Relationships

This post answers questions from a reader named Sarah, who contacted us recently about a friend who’s in love with her, but now refuses to speak with her. (We published Looking for a Meaningful Relationship in answer to that question.) Sarah recently had a relationship experience with a different man and asks The Council if she created this new experience to develop empathy for her friend she asked about earlier.

The Council says, yes, Sarah’s spirit called in a situation that is similar so she could see things from the opposite point of view.

Sarah says she’s developed deep feelings for someone who says he’s got a rare condition that causes him to be detached from a relationship. As she expressed her emerging feelings for him, he said he’s unable to feel anything.

The Council says this man is unable to have the same feelings Sarah has for him. They say this situation is similar to the other relationship where Sarah’s friend expressed love for her, but she didn’t feel love for him. And The Council says the man that she wants to have a relationship with now has made a personal choice to remain unattached, similar to Sarah and her original friend.

Sarah asks the purpose of the (so called) condition of the new man in her life. The Council says this is a condition of choice. He is able to decide to try and make this relationship work with Sarah. The Council advises Sarah to look carefully at what this man is saying about having a condition he’s unable to control. The Council says it’s a pattern in this man’s life when he doesn’t want to do something, to say it’s out of his control when it’s really his choice.

Sarah asks The Council if her current situation is providing the opportunity she wanted to create empathy with her original friend or is it more multi-faceted?

The Council replies that it’s multi-faceted, but it definitely also Sarah calling this new relationship in to understand how the man in her first relationship feels with her not returning his feelings. Now she’s created a situation where she’s involved with a man who’s not ready to return her feelings and this will give her some understanding and empathy for the man in the earlier relationship.

The Council asks Sarah if what’s going on in her current relationship is something she wishes to change into something more with her focus and desire. Or is this relationship something she understands and wants to go into further and learn additional lessons.

The Council suggests Sarah focus on what she perceives now and how she’d like things to be in the future. Send both men love on their journeys and accept these men the way they are. They are in Sarah’s life to teach her lessons and to bring out more empathy and more love for her to learn from. When Sarah is able to send this empathy and love out to others, it will change everyone.

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

Success in the Healing Arts

This post answers questions from a reader named Wendy, who says The Council answered questions for her before and brought her to the wonderful place she’s at today – 6 months pregnant with what she believes is the soul who tried to come through 2 years ago. The Council confirms it’s the same soul and Wendy can expect to have a lot more joy.

Wendy says she now wants to ask The Council about work. She’s worked with an Ayurvedic coach and loved everything she learned. Since then she’s enjoyed looking into many types of healing arts and has a feeling she’s meant to doing healing work, but isn’t sure how. The Council says Wendy has chosen to be a healer in different lifetimes and is experienced in many different ways of healing.

Wendy has recently enrolled in an Ayurvedic practitioner’s course. Part of her is very excited to see where this takes her, and another part tells her she’s insane. She’s afraid to take on something new because she hasn’t gone through with many commitments in the past.

The Council sees this pattern and asks Wendy if she’ll allow herself to fulfill this dream or will she sabotage herself? They say she’s able to successfully complete this course and help others if she’s able to stay focused on creating this. She should make the decision to take the course, and no matter what doubts come up, learn to focus on what’s positive.

Wendy asks The Council what she can do to break old patterns, have confidence, and complete this class, especially with a 7-year old and a new baby on the way?

The Council sees Wendy being successful, but they can’t create it for her. They advise seeing her success, going forward, and acknowledge when she has negative thoughts or feels unable to complete the course. Go slowly because she has her children to look after. Once she completes this course her perspective will change. She’ll be able to succeed and complete whatever plan she creates for herself, and her life will be more positive.

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

Repairing a Broken Soul Contract

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Courtney, who wonders if two people can repair a broken soul contract if violence toward one another has occurred and there’s been too much negativity in the relationship.

The Council says you can always change a soul contract. They also say in your physical body you may desire to change a contract you created in spirit for reasons you may not be aware of in your physical body.

The Council says if you’re in a relationship with a lot of negativity, it’s best to look at where this negativity is coming from and work on these issues. If you have negativity or violence with someone and you feel you can’t change this, then you don’t understand what you wished to achieve when you both agreed to experience this as spiritual beings.

If you both see negativity in your lives and don’t want it, and you balance the negative energy you brought into this lifetime from other lifetimes that’s causing this, then you can change the soul contract.

But if you don’t understand the lesson. and there isn’t true forgiveness and love and understanding that each person is on their own path, as much as you desire to change this soul contract, the contract will remain until you find a way to grow from it. And if you don’t complete the soul contract in your current lifetime, you will have opportunities in other lifetimes.

All soul contracts are changeable if you achieve what you wanted to achieve when you created the situation in spirit (before coming into your current lifetime). You won’t necessarily understand this in your physical body, but you’ll know you’ve achieved what you wanted in spirit when you’re able to change the soul contract.

The Council says there’s a soul contract between Courtney and this other person to forgive this person, a desire to accept this person no matter what path they’re on, and to not manipulate this person. And as you work on these clues, more information will come to you.

The Council says this relationship wasn’t meant to be romantic, but if the two of them are going in that direction The Council says anything is possible with focus and belief, but the issues of negativity must be worked on to fulfill the contract.

In an extended closing The Council wishes blessings to all who write questions and are able to follow The Council’s guidance. They say this guidance will help many more who have similar questions and they send blessings to all who find this guidance helpful.

The Council advises everyone on this path to share their knowledge and love, particularly of our planet, the animals, minerals, and plants. Send love to everything and your life has to change.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Courtney and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What is My Life Purpose?

This post answers a question from a reader named Linda, who asks about her purpose in this lifetime. She’s heard it’s whatever she’s passionate about, but there’s nothing that excites her. The Council asks if there’s anything that made Linda happy in this lifetime or anything she’s had an interest in and enjoyed doing?

The Council says there are things you plan on doing before you came into this life, but there’s never the idea that this plan has to be accomplished. They say when you come into this new lifetime, your #1 purpose is to create as you go along, to find what gives you joy and to follow that. Nothing is written in stone that you must do.

The Council says in her current life it time Linda wanted the ability to focus, she wanted to pay attention, and she wanted to feel what’s interesting to her. They feel Linda has either done this and ignored it, or maybe she didn’t believe what interests her was possible to achieve. The Council suggests thinking about this lifetime and what she has experienced.

Linda says she doesn’t want to be a wasted space and miss her destiny, and The Council replies that we are never wasted space and miss our destiny. Our destiny continues forever. They remind us that we are the creator of our life experience and the #1 thing is to create joy.

The Council says in this lifetime it was Linda’s idea to meet people she recognizes from other lifetimes and they would show her the way, or she would experience certain situations together with these people. The Council feels this is a large clue to Linda’s purpose.

The Council says some people who ask questions need specific answers, some people need guidance, and some people need to be pushed to open another path within themselves so they can find their own answers and this is how they grow.

The Council says they are here to teach as well as to provide answers to questions. They are here to remind us that we are powerful spirits and we have all the answers within ourselves. They’re here to help us find those answers.

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

Having More Loving Thoughts About Her Husband

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named, Vacha, who’s asked questions about her relationship with her husband before. She and her young son have moved back to be with her husband (and her son’s father) after a separation due to Vacha feeling abused in their relationship. She says everything is going well so far, but she isn’t feeling happy deep inside and suggests she may be finding it difficult to forget her husband’s past behavior.

The Council asks Vacha if her purpose for moving back with her husband was to be open to trying her marriage again? They say if she focuses on what happened in the past, she’ll never move forward. They ask what Vacha can do to make their relationship better? What would she like to see her husband doing, and talk to him about these things.

Vacha says she’s going to begin meditating on what to do and she asks for guidance to have more loving thoughts and be in a more positive state of mind. The Council says to have more loving thoughts, think about what brought her and her husband together in the beginning of the relationship. When she looks at her husband now, look at him with the understanding that he’s also a spirit in a physical body going through his own lessons. Is he trying to make the relationship work?

The Council says the purpose of this challenge in their relationship is for her to bring love into the situation, change it with her thoughts, and turn the situation around. See her situation the way she desires it to be. Stop focusing on being unhappy. Find the happiness from the memories she has and try to bring this happiness into her life every day.

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

Will Ex-Boyfriend Realize Impact of his Actions and Express Acknowledgement?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who calls herself LookingForTheOne, who says her ex-boyfriend left her a while back, but the pain she experiences from the break up never left her. And The Council replies that they are almost sure the pain of the break up is what she’s focusing on and as her thoughts stay on this pain, she can expect to remain in the feeling of it.

The Council advises her to focus instead on the joy in this relationship that she’d like in her next relationship. They say she pre-planned in spirit to be in this relationship for a reason, that she will meet the spirit of her ex-boyfriend in another lifetime, and this soul isn’t lost to her forever. They advise her to find a way to be grateful this particular person was in her life for a while. And they say both of them chose as spirits to be together in this lifetime to learn about love.

In response to LookingForTheOne’s statement that she believes she and her ex-boyfriend are soulmates and they could have made it together until the end of this lifetime, The Council says we are all soulmates. And they add that as a spirit she didn’t want to be partners with her ex-boyfriend for the rest of her life. The Council says they came together to learn what was wanted and what was not wanted in terms of love in this relationship.

When LookingForTheOne asks if her ex-boyfriend will ever realize the impact his choices made on others and show any acknowledgement, The Council says it’s a possibility, but nothing is definite and they recommend she allow him to be who he is. They add that allowing is a form of love.

When LookingForTheOne asks about past lives she and her ex-boyfriend shared together, The Council says they feel focusing on the past isn’t that helpful and will tend to keep her focused this relationship. And then The Council goes on to say they had a relationship in another lifetime where they were together, went through many hardships, and were supportive of each other. They had loving relationships in other lifetimes, including one where they were father and daughter.

The Council says in each past life relationship they tried to find the love and express it in the reality they were living in at that time. They created challenges and happy moments and their current lifetime is an extension of those lifetimes where the two of them work together to learn something else.

The Council asks if one of them was brave enough in spirit to be mean and cause hurtful feelings in their human reality so they could both learn from this. The Council emphasizes it’s a very loving spirit that would do that if it’s what you desire to learn. And they add it’s a challenging path to be on. You were hurt; can you still love yourself enough to realize this isn’t what you want and create a different path for yourself.

The Council says there was a lifetime in the early 1800s where LookingForTheOne worked as a dance hall girl in a saloon. Her ex-boyfriend was one of her patrons in that lifetime and loved her very much, but she never returned this love and walked away from that relationship, and it was hard for him in that lifetime.

In their current lifetime The Council asks if they wanted to experience the other side of the coin? Did her ex-boyfriend walk away from their relationship in this lifetime? The Council says you helped each other experience these unfortunate situations so you can find love in them, no matter what, and that is bringing the vibration of love into this reality.

LookingForTheOne asks if they were married in a past life and whether her ex-boyfriend was really in love with her like he said he was in this life, or if he was lying to her. And The Council says her ex-boyfriend had the love for her in this lifetime and in other lifetimes also.

Listen to our 11-minute session to hear all The Council’s guidance for LookingForTheOne and for the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Finding a Loving and Financially Secure Husband

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Diana, who says she’d love to meet her soulmate husband soon and she asks if The Council has any insights on this and if there’s anything she can do to speed up the process.

The Council asks Diana what she’s thinking about to create this marriage in her life. They encourage her to think more about what she will bring to the relationship and not so much about what her husband will bring. As she begins to focus on herself and what makes her happy, she’ll begin to attract that in another person.

Diana asks if The Council is able to see her future husband and The Council says it’s her beliefs and what she focuses on that will pick the husband that she calls in with her thoughts and feelings. They say there are perhaps 10 different men that can come into Diana’s life, and as she focuses on what she wants and what she brings to the relationship, she will draw the most appropriate husband to her.

Diana says she struggles with issues of lack and poverty and she’d like to meet someone who doesn’t have these struggles. The Council says as she struggles with these issues she’ll bring in someone she’s attracted to, but he’ll have similar issues. That is why it’s very important to work on herself and her thoughts first.

If Diana’s thoughts are on lack and poverty it is unlikely she’ll be able to attract someone who’s wealthy. She can change her thoughts to: her abundance is growing  and she’s ready to receive more in her life. She is a spirit in a physical body. There is abundance all around her, she just has to claim it with her thoughts.

Listen to our 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Diana and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

What is the Buffer of Time Regarding Manifestation?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Juan, who asks The Council for an explanation of the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting. For those of you unfamiliar with these two topics, manifesting as it’s used here is the creation of something wanted or unwanted  in your life by focusing your attention on it. And the buffer of time refers to how long it takes to create in your physical reality what you are focusing on.

The Council says there isn’t any set buffer of time. They say you will create in your life according to your beliefs, your seeing what you are thinking about, feeling it, and knowing it’s yours to have.

The Council asks how strong is your thought of what you’d like to manifest. Do you constantly focus on it or do you focus on it, but then forget it for a day or two, which makes the buffer of time last longer. Do you focus on something and then doubt whether it will come to you because it’s not coming quickly enough?

The Council says just by having the desire for something, it is yours in a non-physical reality. If you can stay in the feeling and vibration of what you focus your attention on, and not doubt you can have it and without giving up, it would manifest almost immediately, but they say most people are unable to do this.

The Council says the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting what you are focused on, is entirely up to you.

Listen to this brief, but thought provoking 2-minute session we had with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Juan and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Pay Attention to Your Feelings

This post is inspired by follow-up questions from a reader named Wendy, who asks The Council if they see her doing the inner work they recommend and if she’s on the right path at the moment. And The Council replies that if she continues with this work and focuses more on the desires she wishes to create in this lifetime, they feel she’ll get there.

Wendy asks if she’s doing well with her son. And The Council asks Wendy what she thinks, because they always see us doing well, whether we consider we are doing well or not. You are teaching each other and learning, and you will find better ways as you grow.

Wendy says she struggles with anxiety and often wonders if she’ll get where she wants to go. And The Council says as she focuses more on her desires and as she appreciates the positive changes she sees happening, she’ll experience less anxiety.

Wendy is concerned she may move beyond the relationships she has now with the people she loves so much. And The Council says everyone is a spirit and grows at their own pace. Even if she goes beyond these people, she’ll help them move forward with her energy and her love, even if they aren’t on the same path as her.

Wendy wonders whether time is a factor in whether the soul she aborted will return to her. And The Council says her beliefs and thoughts are what determines if the soul will return to her. There is a pre-birth agreement with this soul, but if she believes something can interfere with letting this happen, she can create that instead.

Wendy asks how she can keep her negative and fearful thoughts away so she can manifest the joy, love, and success we all deserve. And The Council asks her to pay attention to her feelings. Her feelings are 100% more correct than when she tries to figure out the answer with her brain and will tell her the direction she wants to go.

The Council sees Wendy able to change her life and create the life she desires.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Wendy and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Are All Miscarriages Pre-planned in Spirit?

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Tracey who thanks us for our post, Are All Abortions Pre-planned in Spirit Before Birth?, and she asks if all miscarriages are also pre-planned in spirit before we are born? After Tracey had her first child she’s had three miscarriages, but she wants another child very badly. She asks The Council if there are spiritual lessons she needs to learn before she’ll be able to deliver another child, or is she only meant to have one child in this lifetime.

The Council begins by saying that like all abortions, miscarriages are also pre-planned in spirit. And they go on to say as you hold the feeling of what you desire in this lifetime, at any time you can change what’s been pre-planned in spirit. Your higher self is able to contact the higher selves of the people involved and change what you originally pre-planned. Most of the time what you pre-plan will be carried out, but you can recreate your life at any time in this lifetime.

The Council says Tracey pre-planned to have this second child, but she has to focus on this and let go of the doubts that she can have another child. Tracey’s miscarriages were planned so that this desire would become stronger and that would be her focus.

Tracey wanted to experience feeling she didn’t deserve to have another child. She wanted to experience feeling too sick to have another child. She wanted to experience feeling unable to have a child come to full term and have a beautiful life with her. And then at the correct moment she wants to realize she is the creator of her life and she is able to change these feelings to what she desires.

The Council says it was the same soul that miscarried three times and they add that this soul will return to Tracey again in a pregnancy and when she’s ready she will have this child. Because Tracey and this spirit have known each other before there is a strong desire from both souls to have another lifetime together and focus on kindness.

The Council asks Tracey to meditate on this spirit who wants to come to her again and be in this lifetime with her. Picture the soul of this child sending Tracey love and support so they can be together again. As she holds this focus, that is a way to create this in her life.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Tracey and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Guidance for a Potential Romantic Relationship

This post is inspired by a follow up question from a reader named Gabriela who asks for guidance about the romantic feelings she has for a woman named Lara who Gabriela mentioned in her last question. She says despite plenty of synchronicities nothing has happened with Lara, and Gabriela was told by someone the reason for this was that she didn’t deserve the pain Lara would bring into her life, which was difficult for Gabriela to believe because Lara seems like such a nice woman.

The Council says Gabriela is already experiencing the pain and sadness of a relationship with Lara because they aren’t together. They ask Gabriela to change the focus of her attention because they see it’s possible to have the relationship she desires, but they say it will never happen as long as Gabriela is focused on the idea that Lara will bring pain into her life.

The Council says if Gabriela changes her belief that Lara will cause her pain, she’ll be able to create the relationship she desires. But The Council also says if Gabriela finds it easier to let go of her desire for a relationship with Lara, they do see another partner for Gabriela.

The Council says Gabriela’s pre-birth plan was to have a relationship with Lara, but because Gabriela believes this relationship will cause pain and sadness, she’s creating this in her life right now by keeping her out of this relationship.

If Gabriela can change the way she sees this relationship with Lara so that it’s a good relationship rather than a painful one, she can have that good experience. The way Gabriela chooses to believe her relationship with Lara will be is the way she’ll experience it. The Council adds Gabriela can also create an additional relationship with another partner that they mention earlier in the session.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Gabriela and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Will the Soul I Aborted Return in a Future Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by a reader named Wendy who asks if the soul of the child she aborted will be able to return to her in a future pregnancy.

The Council advises Wendy, now that she has gone through this abortion, to really focus on getting control of her life. She should think of the direction she’d like her life to go in and plan it that way. She should have more confidence in herself, believe in what she wants no matter what anyone says, and move forward. Wendy should resist the temptation of being talked into what others believe and handing her life over to others. She shouldn’t dwell on why this abortion happened, or the idea that she was talked into something she didn’t want. Wendy needs to trust herself more and surround herself with people she trusts, but always ask about her own desire and what direction she wants to go in.

Wendy says she has a son, and The Council says they hope she’s able to find joy and gratitude he’s in her life. They say this is the beginning of understanding her feelings and connecting with joy, and in joy we create the future.

The Council says Wendy has forgotten how to feel her desire and create what she really wants. They say if the desire is real, her universe will help her through this experience no matter who agrees with her or doesn’t agree with her. And when she is happy with her decisions, the right people will help her move forward in her beliefs.

The Council advises Wendy to work with her focus and her feelings to let go of the sadness and guilt around her abortion, and if she’s able to do this, the aborted soul will return to her in a future pregnancy. They say she has a strong desire for motherhood and this soul is waiting to help her fulfill this desire. The Council sees this happening if Wendy focuses and believes. The say it’s all lined up for her to bring in.

The Council closes by saying they’re here to help everyone in our reality, and as we all connect, they bring the love from their reality into ours. Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Wendy and the rest of us.

How is It Possible There is No Separation Between Spirit and Human?

Jose’s Comments and Questions

Several months ago after reading one of our blog posts about how every human being – as a spiritual being in a human body – creates every aspect of their human experience (pleasant and unpleasant, wanted and unwanted), a thoughtful reader named Jose asked The Council whether humans have the free will and power to create a better-feeling human reality when we feel spirit is creating a reality we’d rather not experience. Jose also asked some additional questions about the nature of spiritual reality and it’s relationship to our human experience.

In response to his questions we did a session with The Council and published 5 separate posts describing The Council’s information and guidance for Jose and other readers interested in this information (links to these sessions at the end of this post). Recently Jose posted a comment expressing appreciation for the information in those 5 posts and how they opened his mind to some new questions. This post is the first in a series that describes two new sessions with The Council on Jose’s recent questions. This post was originally published on July 5, 2013 and has been revised several times as our understanding of these sessions evolved.

Feeling Separate From Spirit

Jose says The Council’s teaching that spirit sometimes creates challenging or difficult human experiences leaves him feeling like a slave or a pet; and spirit seems like an uncaring master who creates negative human experiences (like pain, loneliness, fear, lack, desperation, etc) to satisfy a selfish desire for spiritual expansion. Jose compares spirit to a matador who enters the bullfighting ring for the adrenalin rush, but has no compassion for the bull (which he equates with his body/mind/ego) that is physically hurt, humiliated, and is ultimately killed in the process. Jose concludes, “the mind/body has no choice but to follow blindly and painfully without knowing what the lesson or purpose was, is, or will be” in physical reality.

Jose also asks 3 questions related to these comments: one about why spirit would chose to be born as a child without limbs, one about why a buffer of time is needed between our human desire and our manifestation of what is wanted, and a question about whether it’s possible for spirit and its mind/body/ego to both simultaneously have free will to do what is wanted. Jose politely ends his comment with an apology if his questions sound too harsh, “but would love to know The Council’s opinion on the matter.”

Overview

The two sessions on Jose’s questions generated a lot of thought-provoking information and guidance from The Council – too much to comfortably include in one post. In this first post of the series, we focus on The Council’s advice regarding Jose’s feelings that spirit doesn’t care about the difficulties humans experience, and we address aspects of his question about a child born without arms and without legs.

We plan to follow this post with additional posts on Jose’s questions, and in each post we’ll focus on how you and Jose can feel more connected to spirit’s unconditional love when you feel like spirit, or something else out there, is giving you a hard time.

Praise for Jose’s Questions

Although Jose’s question may seem harsh, The Council offered the following praise for Jose:

“And we applaud him for his thinking, and how he is trying to explore different ideas. And so we hope, as he comes to the reading of this material, that he will begin to let [in] the feelings that will come with the words.”

Mind/Body/Ego is One with Spirit

If you’re looking for some uplifting spiritual reading and you’re not particularly sympathetic to Jose’s point of view, you may be wondering if you made a wrong turn with this post. But The Council says that from the point of view of who you are as an eternal spiritual being, there are no wrong turns in your human experience, only opportunities to use your free will and power of choice to find better-feeling ways of focusing your attention, and allowing more of the feeling of love you are in spirit into your human experience. And that’s a big part of what this post is about.

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
