Why Do I Feel So Drawn to This Man?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Angie, who asks: Why do I feel so drawn to this man? I’ve been married for almost 24 years. For the last 10 years I’ve experienced a lot of personal growth educationally, careerwise, and how I take care of myself, but I’ve always been focused on my husband. One of my goals was to go back and finish my college degree. When I finally decided to do this, I knew it was the right time. Several years before I graduated I learned that this company opened an innovation center near where I live. The moment I saw the office building I knew I was going to work there.

Council: So you’re very in tune with your feelings, and following them always keeps you on the right path.

Angie: In my last year in college I applied for a job only at this company and they hired me. I started in June 2016. In August 2017 my company sent me to Michigan where I was introduced to our Development Team. There was this one individual on the team I became curious about and I wanted to know more about him. He wasn’t on my project and I didn’t talk to him. His name is, Brent, and he had my attention. I went back home and didn’t think much about him. Later I’d hear co-workers talking about Brent and I was all ears and wanted to know what they had to say about him. Why would I want to know about someone who’s 1,400 miles away and that I didn’t have a conversation with?

Council: Because you’re very in tune with your feelings, but at the time you didn’t understand why you felt that way. Your strong feelings are just your higher self telling you that you know Brent. Why would you be so interested in this person? You never met him before. It’s the familiar feeling you have and all the joy you had together with Brent in other lifetimes.

Angie: I did contact Brent for work-related questions, but that was the extent of our conversations. In 2018 I was assigned to a project that Brent was also assigned to. I only worked with him temporarily, and when we spoke it was only about the project. After a while I was moved to another project, so I didn’t speak with Brent too much after that. By 2019 I decided to focus more on myself. My husband has this pattern of saying things to me that don’t feel good. Some of his actions weren’t so good either. I felt it was time to redirect my focus towards what I need to do for myself and not worry about my husband as much. I decided to plan more time with my friends and do things I enjoy.

Later that year I got to work with Brent again. We were able to work together more than last time, which let us talk more. We started to get to know each other and we clicked. We realized how much we had in common. I started to feel like Brent was special to me. I wanted to know more about him, and I just wanted to continue talking with him. Was it meant for us to be put in each other’s paths?

Council: This was pre-planned.

Angie: I definitely looked forward to talking to him every time I was at work. He had me laughing, and the feeling was something I hadn’t had in a long time. All I wanted was to be with him and I couldn’t understand why. I was so drawn to him. I’ve never felt this way with anyone before. As we were getting to know each other I noticed there were many parallels with our lives. We were just on different timelines, and then we eventually caught up to each other.

Now it’s 2022 and I’ve been trying to understand my connection with Brent and all the emotions that come with this. I try not to talk to him, try not to want to be near him, and I feel I’m being torn apart. I definitely felt it in the middle of my chest. It’s become a regular feeling, even when I’m trying to complete tasks for work.

Council: So feeling uncomfortable here only tells you that you had pre-planned together to come into each other’s life to support each other and make life happy, especially if one or both of you were having problems in your personal life. It was a feeling of: Let’s get together. We’ll enjoy the time we spend together and we’d bring joy into each other’s lives. That’s what you’re feeling. That’s what you wanted. Yet now you’re trying not to speak with Brent. It would give you disturbing feelings because you’re not following what you wanted.

Angie: How can someone have such an effect on another person when all they’ve done is talk through work or on the phone?

Council: In other lifetimes you and Brent were married quite a few times. You were cousins in one lifetime. In one lifetime Brent was your teacher. You and Brent have a lot of time together. Because you had a lot of fun and happiness in other lifetimes, you thought you’d pop into each other’s life this time.

Angie: I want to try and understand the purpose of our relationship and what it means to have Brent in my life.

Council: You brought Brent into your life just to experience joy and just to have a good time when you’re together. That’s all that’s really necessary if that’s what you pre-planned. It would be good for you to appreciate that. Appreciate all the times you get together. Just flow with this and see what you create from that.

Angie: I truly feel that Brent and I were meant to meet since I’ve now taken on a more spiritual path and I’m learning to be more present. If this is true, I just want to make sure I approach the situation appropriately and in the best way possible.

Council: It’s true that you did plan to meet. You planned to have a supportive relationship, to learn about each other, to help each other at work, and then personally. Just let this grow. That’s the way the two of you planned it, to come into each other’s life to see where you were at that time in your lives, and to take it from there. We say just enjoy this.

Bob: Angie doesn’t specifically ask about her relationship with her husband, but I’m wondering if you have any comments on that relationship.

Council: Not unless Angie asks. We’d say here for you, Bob, we answered the questions that Angie wrote, and even though you may be curious, or think Angie may want to know more, we’ll follow what she asks.

Listen to the entire 9-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their gidance for Angie and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it. You can also ask The Council your own question by typing it into one of the comment boxes that appear at the bottom of most of our blog pages.

How Far Have I Come Toward Accomplishing My Goals?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Maureen, who’s been shown many things by her higher self and others in this lifetime, including relevant past lives. Maureen says, I feel as if many large and small loose ends have been bundled into this life. I also feel and greatly appreciate the many pieces moving around to help me succeed. I’m scared I’m not getting what I need to get in this life and I’m overanalyzing everything until I’m exhausted.

The Council asks Maureen what it is you’re not getting. Analyzing too much is always a problem. Try to relax and just be in your life. It’s good to question things, but only for a short time. Meditate on your question. Talk to people about what’s on your mind. But going over and over things, trying to analyze and find answers to your questions when you’re not ready for the answers, will serve no purpose.

If you’ve found out about past lives, that’s wonderful, but try being in the moment and focusing more on your current lifetime and what’s going on around you.

Maureen says on the other hand I feel I’ve come so very far. The Council says they can see you’ve come far, but you’ll never get it all done. You’ll never get all the answers to your questions. In each lifetime there are more questions. There are more things you want to know. There are more ways you want to achieve things. You’re always learning from each experience. Be happy that an answer comes. No matter how much you analyze or know about your past, you’re here because you want to focus on what’s going on in your present.

Maureen asks, How far have I come in this life regarding my goals and what advice can you give me moving forward? The Council says you have many, many more goals that you wish to reach. And you’ll get there when you meditate or sit quietly and imagine what you’d like to create next in your life. Appreciate some of the things you’ve learned. Whether it’s a challenge or something that brings you lots of joy, what have you learned from it?

Taking what you’ve learned when you appreciate yourself and how your higher self is guiding you through each step of the way, you’ll have more understanding of how you can create moving forward. When you begin to see what you’re creating on a daily basis and you enjoy that, then you’ll know there’s nothing you can’t do. You can achieve anything. You have to focus on it. You need to appreciate what you have. You have to think about the directions you need to go in. You’ll find that you reach your goals that you focus on. You may zig-zag around, but you’ll reach them. In your next lifetime there will be more goals. There will be more lessons. There will be more fun to have, and it will go on, and on, and on.

When you ask if you’ll reach your goals, you’ll reach whatever you want to in this lifetime if you take the time to see it and feel the way you want it. Imagine every detail of whatever it is you want. If you want more money, picture it in your checkbook, picture going to your bank, picture going into a shop and you can buy anything you want. You don’t have to know how the money is coming to you. It’s just there. Picture traveling. Picture whatever it is you want to do. Just by picturing it and feeling it as if you were doing it, and the joy you experience doing this, you’ll create what you want.

Stop overanalyzing and start appreciating more. There’s no way you’re not getting what you need in this lifetime. You’re getting it at your own pace. You won’t slide back down the rungs of a ladder because you’re not climbing as fast as you want. You’ll get there. Enjoy the getting there. The joy comes from creating what you want, not when you get it. It’s the creation along the way and the fun of how you’re doing this that matters. Imagine you’ve been dreaming of something and it showes up in your life. Get excited about that and then create some more. There’s no fear you’re not getting what you want.

Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Maureen and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask The Council your own question by typing it in a Comment box that appears at the bottom of most of our blog pages.

Why is My Life So Full of Roadblocks?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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