What will you ask Spirit?

Choosing Childhood Abuse

This post answers questions from a reader named, Marie, who’s had an abusive childhood. She asks The Council if a soul can choose a life of pain and suffering, because she can’t believe she’s chosen this for herself. Marie also asks about a strained relationship with her brother in response to our post, What’s is the Purpose of a Decade’s-long Strained Relationship with a Twin Brother.

The Council says when you (in spirit) choose a particularly challenging life experience, you don’t think it will be horrible. In spirit you think you’ll be experiencing this difficulty because you’re not feeling your connection to who you truly are as a spiritual being.

When you’re living a painful physical reality it’s because you’re not fulfilling your purpose in this lifetime, which is to experience this difficulty and then turn it around. You have called in this difficult experience for one reason: to change it.

The purpose of this difficulty is to think how much more you are than a human being in a physical body. It’s to turn your thoughts toward love, no matter what you’re experiencing. Love has the ability to change everything. We are all here for the single purpose of bringing love into our lives.

As you meditate on your situation and begin to understand it, you’re realize this difficulty isn’t a punishment you’ve created for yourself or that others are putting you through. You’ve chosen this experience to change it.

Some souls choose to experience difficult emotions in this lifetime. They call in other souls that have agreed to abuse them, and they have agreed to do this only out of love so you can have this experience and get on with your purpose, which is to change your experience to something better.

Sometimes we pick difficult challenges to teach people around us to see it and perhaps change, or for people to see what we’re going through and have compassion for us. You are awakening in other spirits the vibration of love and compassion because you’ve experienced this.

Marie says her mother was able to show love to her brother and concludes her mother must have agreed with her to show her rejection as part of her life experience. And The Council asks Marie what she’s learned from this? Has she learned not to reject other people and realize she deserves more? Move forward on your path, show love, and do good deeds for yourself and others. Stop the hurting and always look forward to doing good.

Marie says she can’t understand how violence to a child can raise consciousness and lead to an experience of love. And The Council says as she looks at what she’s gone through hasn’t she expanded, even a little bit, and learned how to move forward. The violence has served it’s purpose. You have expanded, even if you don’t think so right now.

On a different subject Marie says she’s tried for a long time to make a better relationship with her brother, but he remains distant. The Council says contact with Marie can bring up difficult memories of the past for her brother. He’s choosing to shield himself from these heavy memories for now.

The Council says changing the way Marie sees her relationship with her brother can make it less painful. He’s not in the same place as Marie and isn’t looking to question his past so much. To get past this, send him the pink vibration of love. As he allows himself to take this in, your relationship will change.

The Council asks Marie if she’s ready to let go of the abuse she’s gone through? Now look forward. What kind of life do you want to create? As long as you focus on the abuse, you won’t move forward and create a new life with caring and love.

Learn from what you’ve come through. Change the way you see your life experience. Think about how this has enlightened you and taught the people who went through this with you what they needed to learn. Create the life you desire. Go into the vibration of love, joy, and happiness and think about this more and more.

You are a brave soul and have come through a lot. Now you are the creator of the rest of your life experience. Meditate on this information repeatedly. Eventually a little light bulb will go off and the understanding will occur on a very deep level and the healing will happen.

Marie needs to know that she’s gone through what she (in spirit) wanted to experience. It’s not her job to think about how everyone else handled it. The abuse didn’t happen because there was something lacking in her. It was set up in spirit for her to experience in her physical reality and now it’s over. Now it’s Marie’s turn to create the rest of her life.

Listen to our entire 18-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Marie and the rest of us on this important subject of why we choose in spirit to experience abuse in our physical life, and let us know your feelings on the subject.

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.

Relationship Advice

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named, Kelly, who’s looking for guidance on how to create a loving, supportive relationship with her current boyfriend, or whether she should let the relationship go. And she asks about her soul agreement with this boyfriend and about any past lives they share.

The Council says if Kelly was in a tortured relationship they would never advise her to stay in it. If this was the case they would advise preparing herself by growing until she was ready to leave. But if there’s the smallest hope this relationship will work, The Council says it’s Kelly’s job to hold onto that hope and not to focus on this relationship’s problems and what’s going wrong. They advise her to do the work to make herself happy and more understanding so she can grow.

The Council advises Kelly to learn from this relationship. And more than anything else they suggest focusing on her happiness, not focusing on her boyfriend changing. Find anything in the relationship she can feel grateful for. As she focuses on the littlest things to be grateful for she’ll begin to see more and more of this happening in the relationship. This isn’t because her boyfriend is changing, but because Kelly is bringing in the vibration of gratitude for what’s in her life.

The Council says if Kelly lets the fact that people around her don’t understand her boyfriend or don’t understand why she’s in this relationship, she’ll have difficulty changing her thoughts about the relationship. These people aren’t living with Kelly and perhaps they don’t see the things she can find to be grateful for.

As Kelly finds love, patience, and happiness in this relationship, that’s how these things begins to grow. Don’t focus on changing her boyfriend and what he must learn or how he has to be. Allow him to be how he is. That’s how Kelly stays in this relationship and gets it to be the way she wants.

The Council says Kelly and her boyfriend have shared other lives together where they’ve played different roles and some were good lifetimes and some weren’t. In their current lifetime Kelly and her boyfriend thought it would be wonderful to come together and have their relationship work out, but The Council doesn’t see this happening yet because Kelly hasn’t created this yet. The Council says Kelly is capable of creating the relationship she desires by focusing on: what she appreciates, her gratitude, her love, and every happy thing that happens. The Council says it’s not necessary to let this relationship go.

Listen to our entire 15-minute session with The Council (below)to hear all their guidance for Kelly and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about this.

Relationship, Career, and Loving Yourself

This post is inspired by a reader who goes by the name LostSoul who was introduced to The Council by her mother, and now she’s asking The Council questions about her relationship, her career, and about loving herself.

LostSoul says she’s almost 25 years old and she’s living with a man who’s 21. They were together for 2 years, broke up for around 6 months when she pursued a relationship with someone she was unable to have a life with, and then got back together with her former partner. The Council says this was an experience that was needed and they ask LostSoul what she learned from this second relationship that she’s able to bring forward into her relationship with her original partner?

For a few months the relationship with her original partner was amazing. The Council says this is because she’s not the same person she was when she was with him the first time. She’s learned more of what she wants and what she doesn’t want from the other relationship. And there is a new hope that she can change her thoughts and create her relationship with her original partner the way she wishes.

But she’s been back with him for a little over a year and sometimes it’s still amazing, and sometimes her partner has too much to drink with his friends and makes choices that hurt LostSoul emotionally and she gets sick. He’s apologized for his behavior, but later behaves the same way again.

Currently LostSoul has told her boyfriend to stop drinking completely if he want to continue their relationship, and she says he has, but she asks The Council if she’s forcing her boyfriend to face personal issues he’s not ready to face. The Council says she’s giving him choices and that’s what this reality is about and this can be a positive thing. By accepting who he is she opens the door for him to accept himself, experience the love, and see how he wishes to move forward.

LostSoul says she’s haunted by the moments her boyfriend has hurt her, yet she wants to be in this relationship. The Council asks if she’s getting what she wants. As she looks for what she wants instead of seeing what’s not there, she’ll be able to create more of what she wants and she opens the door for more positive experiences. The Council reminds LostSoul that sending love into any challenging relationship will eventually change it for the better.

LostSoul asks The Council about her work as an au pair, which she says she does with a heavy heart because she’s unable to get an admin job due to lack of experience. The Council says what LostSoul wanted in this lifetime was to move around from place to place and they ask her to look for any kind of job that allows her to do this. She wanted to work outdoors, not indoors. And they say if LostSoul begins at the bottom of any job that gives her the experience of moving around, she’ll move forward.

Lastly LostSoul says it’s as if her soul is telling her to wake up and start loving herself and feel free. The Council says this freedom is the movement she wants to experience. As she dreams big she’ll create happiness and the love she wishes to have in a relationship with herself, and it will begin to show itself to her in her improved feelings. They advise her to have an open mind and heart and begin to show love to herself.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session on LostSoul’s questions for The Council to hear all their guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Are There Spirit Realms?

This post is inspired by questions from an appreciative reader named Vacha, who’s been reading about spirit realms and asks The Council’s opinion about these realms. Vacha also asks what she intended, as spirit, to learn in this lifetime.

The Council says they don’t see the existence of the spiritual realms Vacha is speaking of. Instead they see expanding and learning from each incarnation and growing from challenges, happiness, what you learn from the people around you, and how you handle situations and treat people. You keep creating until you feel you no longer need to experience these Earthly realities.

In between these Earthly realities The Council doesn’t perceive any realms. But there are different ways you can help your spirit expand. You can be a guide or helper to people who are experiencing Earthly realities. You can be in spirit and help other spirits create their new Earthly realities. There are many things you can do in the spirit world, but The Council says it’s not like climbing a ladder. The main purpose of everyone’s life is to take the love from spirit and bring it into whatever reality  you are focusing on.

On Vacha’s question about what she intended to learn in this lifetime, The Council says one of her lessons is to be very independent and on her own, but also to expand her learning about many different subjects in addition to the spirit world. She wanted to acquire more intelligence and understanding, and The Council feels she is doing this.

Based on her reading, Vacha expresses the idea we can either expand or come down in a realm. The Council repeats there are no realms and says if you think you either expand or get demoted, they say you can never move backwards.

Vacha asks how we can expand the learning experiences in this lifetime and The Council says the way we learn is by repeating the challenges and lessons we pick for ourselves until we understand them.

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

An Apparent Broken Relationship Contract

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Mel, who read our post, Purpose of Sharing This Lifetime, about an apparent broken relationship contract. Mel says he has a similar problem with a woman he was supposed to have made a spiritual agreement with to be partners in this lifetime, but she’s chosen to be with another man and Mel feels she’s broken their relationship contract.

The Council advises Mel that whatever he and this woman pre-planned in spirit before coming into this lifetime, in this lifetime he and this woman are creating the changes they are experiencing. It’s not that this woman broke their relationship contract. It’s that in this lifetime Mel and this woman are now creating new situations.

The Council emphasizes nothing happens to you in this lifetime or any other lifetime that you don’t help create, including this apparent broken relationship contract. Perhaps this situation will take Mel in other directions he also wished to experience. The Council emphasizes there’s always a backup plan. And they add that whether it’s in this lifetime or another lifetime, Mel will come together with this woman to finish what they wish to explore together.

Mel says even though this woman is choosing to be with another man, Mel feels he’s unable to pull away. He believes he wants and needs her love in his life. The Council says in spirit the man this woman is choosing to be with has also agreed to come along at this time, maybe to give this woman the opportunity to choose who she wants to be with. The Council suggests Mel understand he’s part of this agreement with this other man to see how he’ll handle this part of their lives together.

The Council says there is an agreement that the three of them can create other directions in this lifetime if that is what they desire and Mel knew of this in spirit before coming into this lifetime and was fine with this.

The Council advises Mel that when he’s able to  wish this woman well and appreciate the love he has for her as his friend, good things will begin to happen for him. They advise Mel to consider there’s someone else that’s agreed to come along for him if this woman friend of his didn’t choose him. And they say if he allows this to happen he’ll experience even more happiness in this new relationship than he believed possible.

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

Better-feeling Thoughts for Relationships & Employment

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Fernanda, who says it’s difficult for her to have any sort of relationship or employment.

The Council says when you think time is running out or that you’re dying, your vibration makes it difficult for you to create wonderful things for yourself. They say Fernanda must try to bring herself into the vibration of love, joy, and happiness any way she can. That is where she’ll create the type of relationship and employment she’s looking for.

The Council says when Fernanda finds herself thinking she’s running out of time, acknowledge these thoughts and then remind herself she’s a spirit in a physical body and she’ll never run out of time. If she’s unable to create what she desires in this lifetime, she will have other lifetimes to create it. But her thoughts are holding her back. Going forward, focus on what she desires in her life.

The Council specifically suggests Fernanda focus on what she is bringing to the relationship she desires. Go over in her mind the kind of person she wants to be with and focus on what she can do for this person. Focus on how they build their future together.

If she can think these thoughts they will bring in the feeling of not being sure what will happen, but she can expect beautiful things because she feels differently. The Council suggests imagining a gold light within her heart shining around her and the people who match this beautiful vibration will be attracted to her.

The Council sees Fernanda is able to make something of the career she’s prepared for, but her feelings of doubt and that her life is going nowhere is holding this progress back. Find one little thing in this career that she enjoys doing and focus on that, with the thought that other opportunities will come along.

The Council sees the relationship is a high priority for Fernanda. As she’s able to focus happily on her new relationship, being in that vibration of joy will change her situation in her career for the better also. The Council says if Fernanda is able to change the vibration she carries with her, everything around her must change.

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

A Jealous Partner or Travel?

This post is inspired by a reader named Kelly who has several questions for The Council. First she asks about her 7-year old boy who has a physical tick disorder because Kelly and her son’s father (who she’s apparently separated from) have extremely different religious views – he’s a Jehovah’s Witness and she believes in magic.

The Council suggests keeping calmness around her son at this time and giving him more attention. He needs stability that he’s not feeling right now. Give him a peaceful environment and show him love. And it is very important to teach him about the many different religions in this world and experience their different beliefs. This is something he’ll use later in life.

Kelly had a miscarriage recently and she asks why, and if she’ll have another child. The Council says it was agreed upon in spirit if she, her partner, or her child had a change of heart about this pregnancy it would be acceptable to end it. In this case the soul of the child decided it wasn’t able to learn what it needed to learn by coming into Kelly’s life and decided to miscarry. And The Council says they do see another child is possible.

Kelly has had dreams about having a child and she asks how important they are. The Council says sometimes a dream has pieces of information about problems during your day. And sometimes when you have a dream you cannot forget and is crystal clear to you day after day as if you’re currently experiencing it, there is a very important message in that dream, and as you give this dream more attention you will learn what it’s trying to show you.

And Kelly asks about the man she’s currently involved with and whether she should give up her professional plans for travel because of her partner’s jealously. The Council suggests reviewing this relationship and deciding whether Kelly is truly happy in it or not. If she thinks they have the patience for each other, keep focusing on the happiness they can experience. And when the doubt comes, acknowledge it and refocus on how you’d like your life to be. Or does she prefer the freedom of traveling, learning, and perhaps bringing someone else into her life. Only she can make this decision.

Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council on Kelly’s questions to receive all their guidance, and let us know what you think.

Feeling I’m Failing to Do Something I’m Destined to Be

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Mary who feels like the professional life she thought she would have isn’t happening. She’s happier now than when she thought her professional life was going according to plan, but she feels like she’s failing to do something that she imagined she was destined for.

The Council says in this lifetime what Mary wants is to just be – no pressure, no crazy deadlines, no living a life that’s not enjoyed.

By relaxing into the joyousness she experiences, she’s teaching the people around her about happiness. She will connect on a higher vibrational level to who she truly is as a spiritual being. She is doing exactly what she’s meant to be doing, even though it may feel otherwise. Just relax into this joyous life that only she has created for herself.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) on Mary’s question to hear all their guidance, and let us know what you think.

Help Leaving An Abusive Husband

This post is inspired by a follow-up question from a reader named Jolanda who wrote to us a few months ago about whether she should leave her abusive husband, and The Council advised her that she should leave because her husband wouldn’t change. They also said she should leave for the sake of her children. Jolanda says she’s spent these months trying to find a solution other than leaving, but she now sees her situation isn’t likely to get any better.

The Council says staying with her husband isn’t the direction she wanted to go in and they ask Jolanda not to give up hope on what she can create for herself. They ask if she believes she deserves better, and they say if she’s unable to live with this difficulty there’s another path to happiness. They suggest she look for the courage to pursue this happiness, and they add there’s no rush. Jolanda will get where she wants when she’s more comfortable within herself and researched how she’ll make her life work without being with her husband. She’s still in the beginning stage.

Jolanda says she thought she’d be married for the rest of her life and can barely imagine living without her husband. And The Council asks how she expects to change this situation when she’s unable to imagine the change.

The Council reminds Jolanda that to create a better situation she needs to continually focus on what she desires. If she goes through this situation day after day and doesn’t focus on what she desires because it’s difficult to see a better way, her situation will remain unchanged.

The Council says if Jolanda is unable to find it in her heart to leave her husband, the lesson here is still finding courage. While she is still in this relationship she doesn’t have to take abuse, which she has created, from her husband. Put herself and her children first. Learn to be protected.

The Council sees Jolanda has a lot of work to get to the point where she can focus on how she’d like to live her life. The lesson can be learned, but instead of feeling hopeless she needs to change her thinking. However long this takes, she’ll find a way to do this.

What can she do to find happiness for herself and her children while she remains in this situation? When she goes into a vibration of happiness, the abusive vibration will not match her happiness and won’t continue to bother her. Eventually it will stop.

The Council says Jolanda needs to take her focus off how horrible her situation is and change her thoughts. It’s her spiritual job right now to find a way to bring the love and happiness into her home.

The Council finishes with a reminder there’s nothing more powerful than your higher self. Think of yourself as a great spirit and warrior that has picked a tremendous challenge to go through, and you knew you could do this. There isn’t anything more powerful than your higher self. Pay attention to this part of you. Use the tools you’ve been given and keep focusing on the life you desire.

Listen to our entire 16-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all of their guidance for Jolanda and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Ashley’s Purpose in This Lifetime

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Ashley, who asks The Council about her past and present lives, her abortion, her current boyfriend, and chakras, in addition to several other questions and a bit of background in 3 separate Comments posts, but The Council decides to talk about her purpose in this lifetime.

The Council sees Ashley has looked for many teachers and experimented with many paths, and they say this is precisely what she planned to do. They notice she’s feeling frustrated with everything she’s learned and this is because the answers are within her. The Council says Ashley is to now turn inward and realize she is the light, the love, the intelligence, and the spiritual being she’s searching for.

The Council says that while meditation is always a good way to look inward, they feel in Ashley’s case she should also read about near death experiences and past lives to hear stories of people who have passed on and come back to show there’s more going on than what takes place in this physical lifetime. They say this will help Ashley believe more in herself and begin to trust in her abilities.

The Council says being open to all these other beliefs and paths was good experience for Ashley, but it wasn’t enough and now she needs to turn inward and find out more about herself and the spirit world. And this will help her tune into a finer vibration of the love that’s felt in spirit, and will bring her joy.

The Council says Ashley was meant to be an example of a more positive and hopeful person, and as she discovers this for herself she’ll also be able to do this for her partner and the people around her. She is doing exactly what she planned and experiencing everything she wanted to experience. Now her questions about spirituality will lead her to a better understanding of herself.

The Counsel says all abortions are an agreement between the mother, the father, and the spirit of the child who is aborted.

Ashley mentions learning more about chakras and The Council says chakras are energy that helps you create your life experience with your thoughts and beliefs. If she feels this subject holds something for her, The Council suggests Ashley study this. And how she thinks about chakras will determine how it affects her life.

The Council says if there isn’t much interest in chakras, or she’s ready to go beyond these beliefs, they ask Ashley to continually find time to sit in the energy of white light and bring it into and around her body, in her surroundings, and just begin to feel it. It is always there. Stay positive and bring yourself to the vibration of happiness and joy, which is who you are as spirit.

Ordinarily we  end our sessions with an exchange blessings, but in this case The Council adds that spirit wants everyone in our human reality to know they are sending us their support. And they are thinking how courageous many of us are to go through what we experience, and how many of us are saying we’re finally turning our lives around. And they say as spirit sends more and more energy, more people are open to receiving this energy.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Ashley and the rest of us. And let us know your thoughts.

Feeling Good About Ex-Husband’s Passing

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Lunar Teddy about the death of her ex-husband and the pain and mourning she’s experiencing as a result.

The Council says the pain and suffering Lunar Teddy is experiencing come from searching for the validation she wanted from her ex-husband rather than finding it within herself. They recommend instead that she focus on any happiness she can remember when she was with her ex, and to know that he has completed his task in this reality and is in a joyous, loving place.

The Council says feeling grief and loss or that she and her ex never connected will take her thoughts into creating sadness and depression. They ask Lunar Teddy to speak to her ex in her mind before she goes to sleep and tell him all the things she would like to have done when he was here. The Council assures Lunar Teddy her ex will hear these things and will send her love. And the peace she’s looking for will come.

The Council encourages Lunar Teddy to release any unpleasant thoughts about her ex-husband’s family. They say it was what he needed to experience and she can be glad he completed it and is in a much better place. And they repeat that her ex is sending her much love, and she can focus on this when she feels separation from him.

Listen to the entire 6-minute recording of our session with The Council to answer Lunar Teddy’s question to receive the full benefit of their guidance.

Follow-up Questions on Leaving an Abusive Relationship

Recently we published a post titled, Whether to Leave an Abusive Relationship, answering Jolanda’s questions about her relationship with her husband. After reading that post Jolanda had some follow-up questions and the current post answers those questions.

Jolanda begins by saying she was inspired to ask her questions by listening to the teachings of Abraham and that prior to hearing these teachings she felt leaving her husband was her only option. But she’s heard Abraham repeatedly say something like the following:

“Don’t get out of a relationship until you can be strong and happy within yourself, no matter what is going on around you. If someone makes you go out of the Vortex, just get back in. Don’t let someone upset your ability to be happy and be in the Vortex.”

Jolanda says she resonates to this and realized her problem was really her difficulty being happy when her husband was unhappy. She adds:

“Abraham cautions that if we don’t get ourselves right before leaving a relationship, we’ll just get into the same type of relationship again and again, until we learn our lesson.”

Jolanda asks The Council’s opinion on this, considering their answers in the earlier post seemed to suggest it was her intention she find the strength to protect herself and her children by leaving her husband. She says:

“I know I haven’t learned how to be happy while others are unhappy, which is why I feel that my husband is the absolute best partner I could possibly have at this time, because he’s in my face every day, being unhappy with me, and pushing my buttons. What better way to learn to get happy no matter what is going on around me?”

The Council has a lot to say to Jolanda about her situation, but it boils down to the following quote:

“When you realize something is not bringing you joy (because that is what you are wishing to experience) then you have the ability to start making another choice, to start making a plan on how you would do this if you’re not ready to do this right now. But there is nowhere/anywhere where Abraham or any other spirit would say stay there if you are miserable. It’s like, stay there if you have to till you get the strength to make another choice.”

When the session was finished we did a Google search on “Abraham Hicks abusive relationship” to get Abraham’s views on this subject instead of Jolanda’s view of what Abraham was saying. What we came up with was a 7-minute YouTube video titled, “Is it time to leave?”, which we reproduce below. The woman speaking with Abraham is in a situation similar to Jolanda.

And while Abraham does emphasize the importance of working on yourself to improve your vibration before leaving a relationship so you don’t attract a similar relationship into your life, they add that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to take action. They say:

“The story we like best is: You’re sitting on a park bench and you’re feeling fear, and you don’t really know if there’s a monster in the bushes or if you just think there’s a monster in the bushes. And we say, in any event, move away from the monster.”

The Council appears to understand that Jolanda chose to be in this abusive relationship with her husband for the specific purpose of developing the strength in this lifetime to leave him and protect herself and her children. The Council adds more than once it’s Jolanda’s choice whether she actually leaves her husband on not, and they are merely reminding her of her pre-birth intention.

Listen to our entire 22-minute session with The Council (below) to hear Jolanda’s follow-up questions and The Council’s answers for her and anyone in a similar situation.

Will I Have a Child?

This post is about questions from a 43-year-old reader named Sunshine who is single and has a strong desire to have her first child, but her attempts have been unsuccessful so far. She wants to know from The Council if this is possible and if she’s being punished for having two abortions 20 years earlier.

First The Council asks if Sunshine can be okay if she doesn’t become a mother. And they tell her there’s no outside source that’s punishing her for the abortions. She is entirely responsible for any sense of punishment or guilt she feels from this.

When Bob asks The Council if they think having a child is in the cards for Sunshine because they ask if she can be okay without having children, they reply that Sunshine creates what’s in the cards for her, no one else.

The Council asks Sunshine to remember that before coming into this reality she planned to go through these two abortions with the souls involved, and there was nothing disturbing about this to those spirits. They knew they’d be participating in the abortions for the experience and to help Sunshine, and everything went the way it was supposed to go.

The Council says many of the lessons we experience in this life, we plan before we get here. And there are spirits who agree to play their part in these lessons. When Sunshine is able to release any feeling of sadness or guilt or thinking of wrong-doing about these abortions, then she’ll be able to create a new child.

When Bob asks if adoption is an option for Sunshine if she continues to have difficulty getting pregnant, The Council says of course. But they quickly add that Sunshine can have a physical birth if she believes she’s the creator of her reality.

The Council says nothing is impossible if you really want it. Put yourself in the state of joy and happiness, and be grateful for each experience you come through that inspires you to want something even more. The Council says by knowing you can do this and by staying in the energy of joy and love, the creation of it becomes possible.

The Council says many people believe it becomes more difficult to get pregnant the older you get. But they remind us we are powerful spirits who can create anything we want in our lives. They tell Sunshine not to worry about her age and they tell her to work on forgiveness, happiness, gratitude, and moving forward in her life.

The Council sees it’s very, very possible for Sunshine to give birth to a child. And they remind the rest of us who want to create anything in our lives to find ways to feel grateful and happy for what we have. And they advise us to look forward, adding to that happiness, and move ahead with our mind and our feelings, always in the energy of love.

This 7-minute session is packed with advice for Sunshine and the rest of us. Listen to the recording below and let us know what you think.

A Question About a Soulmate

This post is inspired by a question from Maria who asks if she’s crazy for believing she’ll marry a man she describes as her soulmate, even though he broke up with her a year ago and stopped speaking with her two months ago when he got together with someone else.

The Council says you’re never crazy for having a desire and it’s always good to honor your wishes, but sometimes you need to look at the whole situation and ask why you need to be with this particular person.

The Council says a soulmate is an important person who agrees to come into your life to work something out. They are not necessarily the greatest love of your life. Sometimes they can be a friend, a family member, or someone you just feel a closeness to. On some level Maria has agreed to have this experience with this man she’s calling her soulmate, and for now they say this relationship is over.

Maria says she knows she’ll be together in this lifetime with this person she thinks of as a soulmate, and The Council asks her if she really believes this or if it’s just something she’s hanging onto. They ask whether she’d want to create another soulmate to be with her for part or all of her life. And they add that the idea is to love everyone as you have them in your life for however long they’re in your life.

The Council says if there’s something Maria feels she needs to complete in this lifetime with this person, he can choose to return to her. But they say it’s important to understand whether this person returns or not, Maria has challenges and happiness waiting for her in the rest of this lifetime. The question is whether she will take advantage of these situations or she’ll sit back and become bitter if this person doesn’t return. The Council advises to look for this person to return if she wants, but to also look for someone new in the meantime.

The Council advises Maria to look where this journey takes her now. That’s how she pulls in what her spirit has planned for her. When Maria focuses on the love she had with this person whether he returns or not, this contributes to a more positive experience for both of them and he may desire to return. But if Maria can be available to whatever comes along, she may bring in something so wonderful that she won’t want the original person back.

The Council says the situations Maria has experienced have been put there on purpose by her spirit for her to learn what she wants. With new emotions, thoughts, and feelings they ask her to now create them in her life.

And The Council finishes the session by saying they see great happiness for Maria.

Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of the session below to get all The Council’s guidance for Maria. Let us know what you think.

Will I Have a Child, and Will It Be the Soul I Aborted?

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who recently had an abortion and wants to know if she’ll ever have children. The Council says yes, this is planned for. And when she asks if the aborted soul will return to her as her child, The Council says there’s a great bond between these two souls from sharing many lifetimes and they see an agreement between the two of them for this soul to return to her.

When this soul returns The Council says it will be male, and sees them learning much from each other. But mostly this child will come to help Anonymous on her path, and guide her to be different from how she’s been.

Anonymous says she thought she’d find love and get married, and wants to know why her positive affirmations about this aren’t working for her. The Council points out that even though she is using positive affirmations, she doesn’t believe this will happen. They say until she has more positive beliefs, her negative beliefs will continue to create what she doesn’t want.

When I (Bob) ask The Council for advice on how to change her beliefs, they say her affirmations are good, but they advise her to meditate, read spiritual books, and start practicing the manifestation of small things at first. When she can create these small things by thinking of them, and feels grateful when they happen, she will know that’s how she also creates the bigger things she wants in her life.

The Council advises her to appreciate herself and feel a happy vibration as often as she can. And they say meditation will help with this. They advise her to never give up her dream of being married to a man she loves. And they remind her that by feeling this won’t happen, she’s defeating herself.

The Council asks her to focus on the kind of man she’d like in her life, and by feeling this, that kind of man will be drawn to her. They advise her to ask the question in her mind as men walk by, are you the one? And thinking, I’m ready. If she can play this game, this will help her attract the man of her dreams.

And she’s also asking how she can bring positivity and change to her health and her career. The Council says with her meditations, her being more focused on happiness and the kind of partner she wants, and knowing a child is waiting to come to her, there is a new beginning and staying in these happy thoughts will change her health.

The Council asks what she wants to be, and looking for what she is interested in she’ll find it. By putting it out there that she wants a new, interesting career and being ready for this, she can draw this in.

The Council says the changing of her vibration will quickly fix her situation, and they advise her to have fun reading spiritual books, have fun meditating and looking for a new career, and most of all have fun playing the game of are you the one? By believing she’s ready for abundance and happiness, and that she’s ready for a child, all of this is there for her.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council below for all the details.

Doesn’t Know How to Change This Reality

This post is inspired by a question from Diana who says she doesn’t like the reality she’s experiencing and doesn’t know how to change it. All her life she’s believed true love is the answer to every question and most of her life has been a quest to find this love. But fate keeps bringing the wrong people into her life.

She says it’s been so many years of loss and pain she can’t imagine a different life, can’t go on even for the sake of her child, and can’t see any light at the end of tunnel. Diana asks what’s the point of continuing to live in this reality if you’re never going to find what you seek?

The Council agrees with Diana that true love is the answer to every question, but they remind us it must start within her. They say love is the beginning of the change she’s looking for, but she must learn to love herself first.

If Diana wants more loving people in her life she has to change her vibration in order to attract them. We choose what we experience to learn from it. If it’s a difficult, unloving, or hurtful experience we’ve planned, we’ll remember how to change it by bringing love into it.

Start by finding something to appreciate about what she’s experiencing. Do little things that make her happy. Find the parts of herself that are waiting to be recognized. If she wasn’t ready for this change then The Council wouldn’t be having this discussion with her.

Think about all the good things Diana has done while she’s experienced this difficult time. She’s at the point where she wants to create her life differently and The Council sees this as a wonderful step. Find parts of herself she loves and admire them. No matter how hard she’s created her life, she has come through it and is ready to change it.

As she appreciates her life Diana will have the energy to go on and she will get more clarity as she moves forward. As she experiences this gratitude and love for herself, life will get better.

Listen to the entire 19-minute answer to Diana questions for the full impact of The Council’s wonderful answer.

Pain – A Spiritual Perspective

In this post we look at The Council’s spiritual point of view on the subject of human pain. The post was inspired by two questions about pain from two different readers. Robert’s question is a philosophical one about the purpose for pain in our human experience. And Lee Ann’s question is a personal one about a spiritual agreement she thinks she made to ‘take on’ the emotional pain of other people.

Robert’s Question – The Purpose of Pain

If you’re open to the idea there’s a spiritual explanation for things that happen in your human experience, sooner or later you’re likely to wonder what the spiritual explanation is for pain that might be in your life or other peoples’ lives. Robert concludes pain is an anchoring tool that serves the purpose of slowing down your spiritual vibration enough for you to “embody the human density and to have a flesh body,” and he asks The Council’s opinion about this.

“We would like to say here… how many spirits do you think would want to come back and experience this life in the physical body if they knew they had to have pain to anchor themselves into that physical body?

“There is nowhere where we want to come into this physical experience and suffer, and be in pain, and have many, many challenging experiences. It was our belief to come in to make things lighter… more loving, no matter what situation you are in.

“There was never a belief that you must have pain to anchor yourself into a body.

“The spirit decides when to enter [and] when to leave the body; and what its tool is… what its vibration is… is to be in the vibration of love, and happiness, and compassion.

“And there is nowhere where we would want to experience pain, or anyone else’s pain, because that would not help anyone, anywhere, ever.”

—The Council

Feeling Your Way to Manifesting What You Desire

The following is a message The Council delivered to a small group on July 19, 2011 prior to taking questions from participants. Before the session with The Council the group had been discussing the subject of manifesting desires. Headings have been added for emphasis.

“And so we notice tonight the topic was all of the desires that each of us have. And we would just like to tell you that before you came into this physical reality, you knew you had the ability to create anything you desired. If you have the desire, it’s there for you.

Feel Your Way There

“What we always wish to let you know is that you are so much more than a physical body. You are spirit on this journey in a physical world. You are very powerful, and the way to create, to manifest your desires, is to feel your way there.

“It is wonderful to see it, to imagine it, but what brings it in is that feeling. Every part of your body, every cell in your body understands, and as you have those desires and feel your way there, the universe will line up all the opportunities to help you create whatever it is that you want – and we do say – whatever it is that you want.

The Secret to Manifesting What You Desire

Background

Recently The Council suggested to Cynthia that we write a post to help people who are feeling frustrated in their attempts to use the teachings of the law of attraction and deliberate creation to manifest what they desire in their lives. As two people who have experienced these frustrations, we liked The Council’s idea and during a session on Saturday, May 5, 2012 we asked for their suggestions for this post.

Highlights

In this section we’ve gathered The Council’s comments from throughout the session that represent for us the essence of their guidance for manifesting what you desire. In the sections that follow, these comments are presented in the context of the entire discussion, to give you a better idea how these ideas developed during the session.

“We see that many [who] are incarnated in your physical world have many questions about manifestation.”

“We see that many are trying to create specific things – whether it is relationships, whether it is material abundance, whether it is health – [and] that there is trouble in creating it.”

“Many do not know what it means when they hear the phrase, ‘line up with what it is you are trying to create.’ And many are out there teaching ‘to match the vibration of what you are trying to create’. Many do not know how to do this because if you’re trying to create something you’ve never had, or never lived, there is a doubt [about] what it would feel like [and] what it would be like to have this thing or situation.

“So how do you create with your thoughts when you do not have the experience of having whatever it is that you are calling forth? And we believe what many are missing… the secret is: you do not have to line up with that particular thought; you do not have to imagine – even though it is wonderful to imagine – what it is that you want, [and] that you already have it.”

“So if you cannot line up with the vibration of what it is that you want because you have no idea what it would look like in your imagination, or what it would feel like, the answer to this – and this is the answer to manifesting – [is] raise your vibration with happy thoughts, that is the answer.

“When you raise your vibration, everything that you have desired – whether you know how to create it or not –will come to you.”

“It is so simple that many will have a hard time believing this, but we can tell you it’s what you might call the shortcut or the easier way to manifesting. It doesn’t have to be so difficult as seeing that you have it, feeling that you have it, [and] what would it be like? Some cannot do this.

“And so just be happy about anything; stay in the feeling of happiness and spirit will bring in everything that it wants.”

–The Council

The Rest of the Story

If you agree with The Council that their advice may seem overly simplistic and difficult to believe, I [Bob] had the same feelings during the session (as the following details of our discussion indicate) and for at least the next 10 days. But after listening to the recording of the session every day, meditating on it, and giving The Council’s advice a try, I’m beginning to see evidence there’s something to what they’re saying, and we’re both looking forward to seeing what manifests as we practice reaching for happier thoughts and feelings.

Most of our discussion with The Council during this session is presented in the following sections. Headings have been added to organize the material in logical and manageable blocks of thought.

August 1, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feeling Your Desire

To raise your vibration
We ask you to have a thought,
Something that makes you happy.
See it in your future.

And if you can’t do that
We ask you to go back to a memory from your past:
Something that made you laugh;
Something that brought you joy.

As you stay in that memory
Your vibration increases.

The frequency of this vibration becomes faster,
And as you are in this state of joy
We then ask you to go into the thought,
Into the imagination of picturing what you want,
But then feel it.

After you have gotten to a state of happiness,
Then begin to feel what your desire is like.
What would it feel like to have it?

And that is what will help you manifest.

—The Council

Excerpted from The Council’s opening comments to participants of a Manifesting Your Desires meeting on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in New York City.

(The Council’s opening comments lasted about five minutes and with the exception of a brief greeting, each statement seems to stand on its own as a thought for the day. Beginning July 25, 2011 we are publishing The Council’s opening comments during this session as eight individual thoughts for the day. This post is the last of the series.)

July 31, 2011 Thought for the Day

Your Vibration

As you feel these desires
Your vibration changes.

And it is this vibration
That will bring back to you
What it is you are trying to manifest.

And many people do not know
How to line up with that feeling;
The feeling of happiness,
The feeling of joy.

That’s what will help you create.

June 7, 2011 Thought for the Day

Think of the happiest, best, most joyous feeling
You have ever experienced.

And the love you experience as spirit.

March 14, 2011 Daily Thought

If you believe
Your journey is supposed to be
About suffering and lack,
It will be,
But it doesn’t have to be.

Your journey is not supposed to be about suffering and lack.

If you believe
Your journey is supposed to be
About sacrifice and hard work,
It will be,
But it doesn’t have to be.

It is not supposed to be about sacrifice and hard work.

If you believe
Your life needs to be difficult
In order for you to grow spiritually,
You will experience this,
But you don’t have to.

Your life is supposed to be about
Joy, and love, and happiness.

You are here to experience
The lightness of being.

You are here to experience
All the abundance
The Universe has to offer.

And you are here to experience
The ease and power of your creations.

What About This Idea There’s More Than One Reality?

This post is an introduction to the concepts of multiple realities and multiple dimensions — subjects that were briefly introduced to us a couple months ago in a session with The Council to answer a question from Diana about a relationship where two people seem to have opposing desires. Here are some of The Council’s references to multiple realities that got us thinking about this subject and how an understanding of it  might  improve your day-to-day human experience.

“But if you go deeper into what many people are not understanding yet, in all of our realities that simultaneously exist, when you ask for this [experience] to be in your life and you line up with that vibration, it is experienced.”

“So you are always given what you ask for, but there are many dimensions. And not to make it too difficult, we try to get your focus to be on creating the feeling within you that you would have with this [experience] that you desire.”

“By making it as real as possible you will find the feeling within you. The joy [and] the happiness that you feel experiencing it as if it is already done – that feeling makes it real in another reality. It is happening. That happening in another reality brings it closer to coming into your existence.

“By just having the thoughts, it is created. But experiencing it as if it is already done makes it already done in a reality, in a dimension, that is closer to your human existence.

“And so each time this memory, this desire is experienced, the vibration of those thoughts and feelings gives the universe (so to speak) the power of creating this in your reality – to bring it in.”

–The Council

What About This Idea That We Create Whatever We Desire?

This post is in response to a question from Diana about the idea that everyone creates whatever they desire. She’s read a lot on this subject and asks about the practical application of this idea for creating a relationship she desires. Diana particularly wants to know how this idea works if she focuses all her attention on being with a specific person, but this person is focusing all their attention in opposition to that and doesn’t want to be with her. She asks the logical question: How is it possible for both people to get what they desire if their desires are exact opposites?

What We Desire, We Create First in a Non-Physical Reality

The Council’s answer to Diana’s question provided Cynthia and me with some new insight and understanding into the process of getting what we desire. This understanding begins with the idea that when we have a desire for something, whatever we desire is immediately created in a non-physical, vibrational reality. In Diana’s example, The Council says her desire to be with this person (since a name or gender aren’t specified we’ll refer to this person with the letter A) instantly creates in a non-physical reality the experience that she is with A in every way she desires.

Given a choice, most of us probably prefer to experience our desired creations in our physical reality, not just a vibrational one. So the question is: how do we get our desired creation from a non-physical reality into our physical reality.

How Can We Feel More Connected to Our Spirit?

This post is based on a session with The Council on Saturday, July 17, 2010 that addresses the following subjects:

  • Our connection to spirit is not broken when we’re born in a physical body.
  • Feeling our connection with spirit.
  • Using love and other good-feeling emotions to create what we desire.
  • The power of a smile.

True or False: Birth Causes a Separation from Spirit

Many who are interested in enlightenment and connecting with spirit think that when we leave our true home in spirit to be born into physical bodies that a separation from spirit occurs. The Council says when we think of spirit as being “up there,” “on the other side,” “in heaven,” “in another dimension,” or somewhere other than within us, we basically believe there is a separation from spirit.

Ask And It Is Given

Striving for More Frequent Posts

The Council recently suggested that we take a break from working on a response to Chris’s question about a broken sacred contract in order to provide readers with more frequent posts. A couple weeks ago Cynthia had an experience that seems like a good candidate.

One of The Council’s Favorite Reminders

One of the points The Council makes most frequently and emphatically is how important it is that everyone know who they really are. While this advice isn’t new, (the ancient Greek aphorism “know thyself” is attributed to at least half a dozen sages including Socrates), The Council also reminds us that humans are non-physical, spiritual energy living in a physical body. Even this idea isn’t new, but it doesn’t seem well understood.

A Desire for the Feeling, Not Just Understanding the Words

Cynthia felt like she understood the words, but had a strong desire to experience the feeling of who she is as spirit in her body, not just an understanding of the words. Many times each day for a couple weeks she would say to herself, “I want to know who I really am. I want to see it and I want to feel it.” Cynthia wasn’t just thinking the thought and saying these words many times a day. She felt this powerful desire deep in her heart and felt like she was sending this feeling out to the universe, asking it to let her see and feel who she really is.

Feelings are Guidance from the Pure Spirit We Truly Are

Feeling a Need for Change, but Uncertain about a Career Move to the Arts

In this post The Council offers guidance on decision making. The post is a response to Sandy’s request for guidance about a career decision. He’s between jobs and wonders if he should stick to a career path he’s familiar with or try something completely outside of the box. He likes the idea of being involved in the Arts, but he tends to think of himself as a math and science person.

What Do I Do With My Life

The Council observes that many of us stress over making decisions, and this stress can make it difficult to achieve the outcomes we desire. They suggest when it comes to making decisions about the path to take in our life, the more relaxed we can be about the process, the more satisfying the outcome will be. For Sandy, The Council suggests making an effort to enjoy this time between jobs and to consider his desires.

“What brings you happiness? Which thought? Which imaginary situation brings you joy…a smile to your face? There are many things you can choose from.”

–The Council
