Looking for a Man in Her Life

This post answers a question for The Council from Still Looking, who asks if there’s a relationship in her future. Still Looking is in her thirties and ready for a beautiful relationship. She’s tried positive affirmations, meditations, healing, psychic readings, and self-love to make this happen, but her relationship hasn’t arrived yet.

Years have passed and she’s beginning to accept that she’ll be on her own and she says she’s okay with this. But she asks if the psychics are just telling her what she wants to hear, or is there someone for her?

The Council begins by saying it’s entirely up to Still Looking whether she attracts a man into her life. They say because she has a desire for a relationship, it’s there for her in another dimension. Her work is to bring this relationship into her physical reality. And the only way to do this is by believing it’s there and not to get depressed that it hasn’t happened yet.

Every time Still Looking has the thought her relationship isn’t here yet and maybe these psychics are wrong, it only delays the relationship she wants to experience. Be as positive as you can and keep focusing on the fact that this relationship is there.

Still Looking should think to herself all the reasons why she’d like a relationship; what she’d be doing in this relationship; where she’d live; how the future will be; until she makes herself so happy from imagining these things that she’s actually able to bring this relationship into her physical reality.

The Council sees Still Looking had a pre-birth plan to have a partner around this time in her life if she’s willing to do the inner work. The pre-birth intention was to be with a partner and do much traveling together, and they’ve done this in two or three other lives together.

The Council says Still Looking will be included in the life this partner is already living and this will open her up to helping others. She should add this into the details of creating the partner she desires because it’s what she had in mind in her pre-birth plans.

The Council says Still Looking needs to become the creator in her life. It doesn’t matter what anyone else tells her. She creates a partner with her belief that she can. She creates him with her thoughts and feelings of this happening, but don’t put any pressure on herself that she must be in this relationship by a certain date.

The Council says there is someone for Still Looking as long as this is her desire and she’s willing to believe and create this.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Still Looking and the rest of us on how to create what we desire, and let us know your feelings on this subject.

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.

A Relationship – Being Transgender – Dad’s Surgery

This post answers questions from Brennan, who’s concerned about his relationship with his best friend; he wants to know if his mother will ever accept him as transgender; and he’s concerned about handling whatever happens in his Dad’s surgery today.

Brennan says his best friend lives in California and he has strong feelings for her, but their relationship became difficult when he forgot to to put an important word in a text and now he asks The Council how he can fix the problem.

The Council says Brennan has to get to a place where he’s able to think about this situation with his best friend differently. Instead of beating himself up because he forgot to put a word in a text, he can say it now if he wants to and hasn’t already. This situation is likely to pass. If Brennan hangs on to all the things he didn’t do that messed up this relationship, the relationship will stay the way it is.

The Council advises making light of what’s happened. And as Brennan believes this and can be in this lighter energy, he can begin to send this lighter energy to his best friend. It’s okay to make mistakes. We aren’t here to live life perfectly. We’re here to experience what’s good and what we goofed up on and learn not beat ourselves up for our mistakes. If Brennan truly believes he’ll be able to fix this relationship, then he’ll be able to.

Brennan is transgender and he asks The Council if his Mom will ever accept this. The Council says Brennan is helping his mother learn acceptance, which is one of the experiences she wished (in spirit) to learn in this lifetime. He needs to be who he is and allow his mother to accept him at her own pace the way he wants her to accept who he is.

Brennan finishes with a question about his father’s heart surgery, which is scheduled for today. He’s worried his father won’t make it through this surgery and he asks if he’ll be able to handle whatever happens.

The Council says Brennan will be able to handle whatever happens in today’s surgery because it’s all part of what was pre-planned in spirit. Send your father light and love and healing, and accept whatever choice he makes about whether to stay or to leave this lifetime.

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

Getting Rid of the Guilt and Sadness After an Abortion

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Liz in response to a post we wrote titled, Getting Rid of Depression After an Abortion. Liz says she’s struggled with this as well from an abortion she had 11 years ago. She was unable to have intimate relations after the abortion and mysteriously started loosing her hair. Recently she’s started to feel emotions about this abortion that she’s suppressed: deep sadness, anger, resentment, guilt, and shame.

Liz says she doesn’t know how to tell the spirit of the aborted child she’s sorry for terminating the pregnancy, she’s sorry she was careless about getting pregnant, and she’s sorry for feeling resentment about the abortion. She doesn’t know how to forgive herself and let go of this toxic mix of emotions. She’s writing to ask The Council for guidance.

The Council says there is nothing to feel sad, guilty, or depressed about. Every single abortion, including Liz’s, is pre-planned either in spirit before hand, or it’s agreed upon in spirit that when the time comes the souls of the parents and the child will make the decision to abort or move forward.

The Council says perhaps the child didn’t want to live a whole life. Perhaps it only wanted a short visit in Liz’s womb just to experience that. The Council says from our human viewpoint we don’t understand what the soul of this child desires, but in spirit the entire matter was discussed and agreed upon. They repeat there is no purpose for guilt and sadness. Liz should focus on the thought that she completed what was agreed upon by each party and now everyone is free to go on the next part of their journey.

The Council advises Liz to work on her heart and throat centers. Send the energy of love to her throat and talk about what she desires without holding back. Speak with kindness. And the color blue will activate her throat center.

The Council says the color green can activate her heart. Picture love filling her chest cavity and going down her shoulders and arms into her fingers. They advise Liz to allow herself to heal and feel again. As she speaks freely and can feel emotions, even if they are sad at first, her body will begin to work properly.

The Council says as Liz acknowledges her negative, depressive, sad thoughts, she should ask how she can begin to change these thoughts by moving forward into more joyous thoughts. They say everything Liz wants is within her, but she must get to a place of joy so she can create what she desires. There is no reason for continuing to focus on negative thoughts.

The Council asks Liz what she’s learned from this abortion. She went through this abortion so she could begin asking if there’s more to her life. As she asks the questions, she brings in the answers from The Council and others. They say Liz has done exactly what she planned to do and now she needs to move beyond her negative feelings.

Part of what Liz wanted to experience from this abortion was a connection to her spirituality. She wanted to learn there is so much more to who she is than a physical body. By going through this abortion and experiencing sadness and depression and asking for more, she brings help from the spiritual world. She can now connect with the spirit of her aborted child because it’s not dead, it’s just not in her physical life right now, but it’s in her life spiritually and they are still connected. And The Council advises Liz to connect with this love.

The Council says as you and Liz read and listen to this post a healing will take place and you all will grow, and that is part of The Council’s purpose.

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

Moving Past Struggles Over an Abortion

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who struggles to forgive herself for having an abortion. She sees this as an opportunity for spiritual growth, but she gets stuck and asks The Council how she can move past the regrets she experiences. She believes healing will come if she’s able to have another child, but she’s worried her negativity from her abortion is preventing her from getting pregnant. Anonymous asks The Council if there’s anything she needs to do before she’s able to conceive again.

The Council sees that Anonymous carries guilt with her about her abortion and they remind her and all women who experience a terminated pregnancy there’s no need for this guilt. All pregnancies are pre-planned in spirit. She and the soul of this child wanted to experience this. The Council says if she were in school she’d received an A+ for following this challenge she and the child picked to experience and she’s promoted to the next level. They add that the next level is for feeling love for herself and being proud of what she’s done, and proud for the soul of this child that she allowed it to experience what it wanted.

The Council sees Anonymous’s desire for another child and they remind her of the difficulty creating what she desires when her vibration isn’t in one of joy. They suggest thinking positively and changing how she thinks about her abortion: get to a place where she can see she created the abortion and if it’s her desire, she doesn’t need to experience it again.

Moving forward The Council suggests Anonymous do whatever she can to get to a joyful place. She can do this by finding memories that make her laugh or watching movies that make her laugh and raise her vibration. Begin to think of a new child and the life she can offer it.

The Council asks Anonymous to practice a meditation that concentrates on her heart center. At first see a tiny light within her heart. And as she experiences more joy this light will grow. This is the light of her creation. As this light becomes brighter and brighter it opens the door to whatever she desires.

The Council recommends that in this light Anonymous bring what she wishes to create into her mind and into her feelings. Feel the love and then she’ll be able to move forward and have another child if that’s her desire. Her purpose now is to work on her heart chakra and make the light and the feeling within it grow.

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

Fear of Being a Parent

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who goes by the name, Anon, who’s looking for answers on the subject of pregnancy and motherhood, and says she struggles in these areas of her life.

Anon had a terminated pregnancy where she felt afraid, but no guilt or regret. She also felt a lot of love for the fetus. Anon has been with her partner (the father of the terminated fetus) for over 14 years and he was devastated by the termination, but he stayed with Anon.

The Council says part of what Anon and her partner agreed to in spirit was to become parents together in this lifetime, and if there was a challenge involving the pregnancy they would face this challenge together and work it out.

Anon says she feels pregnant again, but the same fears are present and she’s concerned she will also terminate the current pregnancy. She hasn’t told her partner because she doesn’t want to break his heart again. They don’t currently have any children and Anon is almost 40 years old.

The Council says the fear is because Anon is bringing many hurts from a previous lifetime in Asia into her current lifetime for her to heal. They say many lifetimes ago she lived in great poverty and had maybe six children which she had to sell so these children could have a better life. The fear she has of motherhood in her current lifetime is coming from this other life and she’s afraid of loosing her children again in this life.

The Council says if Anon goes forward and brings children into the current lifetime she will have one or two that are willing to return to her from this other lifetime in Asia, and they say there is much love here. In her current lifetime she wishes to follow through and learn more about these souls that she didn’t have time to have a full life with previously. The Council says all Anon’s fears can be released if she has one or more children in her current lifetime.

The Council says Anon’s soul needs to either complete the journey it wanted to have or let it go and know the hurts from this past life will come to the surface in a future lifetime for her to heal. The Council advises Anon to meditate on this pregnancy she and her partner intended to face together and to believe she can carry out in her current life what she was unable to in her previous life long ago.

The Council says they don’t see Anon failing. They see if she has one or more children she’ll receive lots of help for the spirit world and her life will be much different than the life where she gave up her children previously. There will be a lot of healing for all the souls involved.

Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear their guidance for Anon and the rest of us, and let us know your thoughts.

Did I Know My Friend in Other Lifetimes?

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who met someone they became friendly with and although the relationship was short-lived, this person made an impression in Anonymous’s life. They ask The Council to confirm their suspicion that they knew each other in other lives and if this is true, what was their relationship in these lives. Anonymous is also interested in whether they will reconnect with this person in this lifetime.

On a separate note Anonymous asks whether they were ever interested in herbs and healing in other lifetimes because they are drawn to this in their current lifetime and it feels familiar.

The Council says in the current lifetime it is the remembering of shared other lives that has brought you together for a short time like ships passing in the night.

The Council says in other lives you’ve been sisters, mother and child, a married couple, and peers who worked together, and they say to enjoy this familiar feeling you’ve identified with.

The Council says there’s a possibility you will reconnect with this person in the remainder of this lifetime as long as your life choices bring you in this direction.

The Council say Anonymous has dealt with herbs, oils, and mostly crystals in other lifetimes and they suggest Anonymous familiarize themselves with this. The Council also suggests Anonymous begin to meditate if they don’t already. This will connect them to a peacefulness and help them with the direction they want this lifetime to go in.

Listen to this brief 3-minute session with The Council on these questions to hear all of their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Feeling Down After a Recent Energy Healing

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Linda about a distant energy healing she received recently to clear her aura of negativity. Since the healing took place she’s felt down, not much joy, and seems to have lost her flow in life. She asks The Council if these feelings will pass, or is there something she can do to re-establish her joy and get unstuck from where she finds herself?

The Council begins by pointing out the ability to heal herself lies within Linda rather than within an external healer. Sometimes when you go to another person for a healing, that person will send you healing energy and your body and spirit will use this energy in the way that’s best for you. What The Council sees is that this healing stirred up a lot of Linda’s emotions and instead of getting the full clearing she wanted, these emotions have been brought up so she can learn to heal them herself.

The Council suggests meditation, prayer, working with crystals, and using her healing inner light. See the energy go into and around her body and lift out what needs to be removed.

Another exercise Linda can do is one she also used in a lifetime as an American Indian where she would stand on a hilltop on a windy day, raising her arms, and ask the Wind God to blow through her and remove whatever is negative or she doesn’t need.

The Council says the reason these emotions were stirred up is to get her to know she has the power to heal herself. And they add that the person Linda chose to do this energy healing did exactly what was necessary, with love, to push her forward in finding her true self.

Listen to the entire 6-minute session we did with The Council (below) on Linda’s questions to hear all their guidance for Linda and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Can Amber Make a Career Out of Doing Spiritual Readings?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Amber, who asks The Council if she’s on the right track with her spiritual readings.

The Council says they love getting questions about being on the right track because they say you are always on the right track. You always get to where you want to go. You may take a shortcut or a longer journey, but you are always on the right track. You are just changing with your thoughts how you get to where you want to go. And The Council adds that we change our thoughts by what we believe.

Amber asks The Council if she can eventually make a full-time career out of doing spiritual readings. And The Council recommends with practice they see a full-time career is possible. They see she’s done this in many lifetimes, along with healing, and it should come easily to her.

The Council says how Amber does the reading isn’t that important, and they recommend touching the person’s hand or shoulder to see what kind of images she gets and how she feels. As she does this the images will increase, and she’ll also find she has a lot of healing energy in her hands. The energy and the intention of what she intends to provide for each person, in addition to her  guidance for these people, will help her develop. The Council says many people will come to her. This is a great talent Amber has, and she enjoys using it.

When we answer more than one person’s question in a reading (like we do in this session), we generally include The Council’s closing statements in the recordings of both sessions. As we mentioned in our last session, The Council chose to offer a more extended closing than usual. They say everyone in spirit wants us to know they are sending us their support. They think many of us are very courageous for what we choose to experience. And they increasingly hear us say we are finally turning our life experience into something more positive.

And as spirit sends us more energy, more of us are open to receiving this and we’re paying attention to our feelings and our thoughts. And we become more enlightened and take another step home to spirit with more knowledge and love. And each time we return to spirit, we can bring that love with us.

Listen to our entire session with The Council to answer Amber’s question (below) for the full benefit of their guidance for her and for the rest of us. Let us know what you think.

A Past and Present Lifetime Relationship

This post is inspired by questions about a relationship from a reader who goes by the name Aquarius 4. He recently had a private phone session with us which brought up more questions that he’d like us to answer in a post.

Because Aquarius 4 discusses several different subjects that relate to material we discussed in our phone session, his comment can seem a little difficult to follow. The basis of his story is a problematic relationship with a woman in this lifetime that he’s experienced in other lifetimes.

Toward the end of our session with The Council they say Aquarius 4 won’t rid himself of this woman or the problems he’s experiencing with her in his current life. They are here to be experienced, The Council says. They say the connection with this woman is strong because the two of them have a spiritual desire to heal their relationship.

The Council advised Aquarius 4 he must take his focus off these past lives. They are there to provide information about what’s happened and what’s desired, but constantly focusing on what went wrong in those lives won’t fix the problems he’s having with this woman is his current reality.

The Council says to focus on what went right, no matter how brief it was, and focus on what he desires. When Aquarius 4 is able to create more of what he desires in his current lifetime, The Council says that’s when he’ll see change and feel more at peace.

The Counsel advises Aquarius 4 not to pressure himself to heal this relationship right now. They say healing will happen when they both feel safe and are able to look at the situations around them and overcome them.

At the end of our session The Counsel says Aquarius 4’s letter is full of questions and fear in the beginning, but by the end he sees himself handling and acknowledging things differently. They add that through this situation with this woman he has already begun to grow and is on the path he wants his life to be on.

The Council’s parting words are to be present, focus your mind, and feel your heart. They ask what Aquarius 4 has created in his reality and what he wishes to create? They advise seeing his situation as he wants it, feel the love, and he’ll bring this into his reality.

Listen to our entire 19-minute session with The Council below to answer Aquarius 4’s questions.

Past Lives, Trust, and Future Reconciliation

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who asks why the man she was seeing said they were together in a few past lives when she doesn’t believe this to be true, and why was he confused how he felt about her. She also asks if there’s a possibility of a reconciliation with her ex-best friend who she does feel a past life connection with.

The Council sees there have been several lives together with the man she was seeing and they ask why is this so hard to believe. They see there is a feeling of not trusting what she’s being told because this man does not have the best intentions. And they suggest the possibility of getting away from this relationship because this lack of trust is a red flag from her higher self.

The Council says by bringing love into this situation she can honestly speak about this lack of trust with this person. But because there’s a trust issue they ask her to look at other places in her life where there have also been these issues. The Council says this person is the one who is helping bring forward these trust issues in her life because that is something she wishes to heal in this lifetime. And they also say that just because they have been in several lives together, this is not a reason to be together in this life. His purpose in her life has more to do with getting her to face her issues with lack of trust.

On the subject of reconciliation with her ex-best friend The Council sees this situation coming full circle and there will be a reconnection in the future and more understanding what this relationship is about. But first she needs to work through her trust issues so that when this relationship comes around again there will be a different outcome with more understanding.

When Bob asked for any specifics on how this woman might look at her trust issues The Council used the metaphor of peeling an onion one layer at a time. When she feels this distrust they encourage her to ask what this reminds her of and see what memory comes from that. And then to ask again and again, going further back in her life, until she finds a pattern to what set off this distrust.

And once she gets to that point everything will begin to change. Her understanding of how these people came into her life to help her experience and work through these distrustful situations will allow her to be more comfortable with the people in her life.

The Council reminds her to meditate on the next step, ask why she feels this mistrust, and to remember she is spirit in a physical body. Ask herself what she was trying to experience and the answers will come.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session below to get all The Council’s guidance for this woman.

Is the Soul of My Aborted Brother One of My Children?

This post is inspired by a question from Laurel, who wants to know if the soul of a child her mother aborted has come to her as one of her children. She says she still thinks about this abortion 30 years later.

The Council says the soul of Laurel’s aborted half-brother is not the same soul as one of her four children in this lifetime. What The Council does see is a lifetime in ancient Egypt where Laurel raised and taught many of Pharaoh’s children. And each time a child died or was aborted there was a hurt she is trying to heal in her current lifetime. Her children in the current life made an agreement with her to come in and help her experience the joy of having them around.

The mother’s abortion brought up Laurel’s disappointment so it would, as she says, “haunt” her.” But her children in the current lifetime are there to stir Laurel’s memories of past lives and to help heal that hurt. She is at the point where she’s ready to explore this and slowly share it with her children so their minds and belief systems can open and they can become aware of other realities.

The Council realizes Laurel is bothered by her mother’s abortion, but they advise appreciating the children in her life right now, how they’ve helped her get to this point, and how they encourage her to heal this disappointment.

In the same way she was unable to prevent the Pharaoh’s wives from aborting their children, she was unable to stop her mother from aborting her brother. The Council points out Laurel’s disappointment with her mother for this, but says it is so she can heal it now and get to the point, with love, where she can understand what happened. She can allow her mother to be who she is. This is the law of allowing.

The Council advises Laurel to meditate on these things and begin to look at them differently. She hasn’t lost her aborted brother or Pharaoh’s aborted children because we are all connected in spirit. When Laurel understands The Council’s teaching that she is spirit in a physical body, she’ll experience many healings from her lifetime in Egypt, and The Council will be with her as she goes through this.

Listen to the entire 16-minute session below to hear all The Council’s guidance during this session and let us know what you think.

How to Work with Crystals

This post is inspired by a question about working with crystals from a long time reader named Jan who’s particularly interested in glass-like Andara crystals.

The Council begins by advising you to buy Andara crystals from someone who’s reliable and knowledgeable about them because they look like glass and many are not the real crystal. And they say when you hold one of these crystals you should immediately feel a warmth in your hands.

They talk about the ways crystals were encoded with information and knowledge in Atlantis, where Jan experienced working with them in another life. And they talk about meditating with crystals to receive the knowledge held within them.

The Council says Andara crystals are excellent for healing and developing psychic abilities and they recommend a way of working with them on the body for healing and for grounding.

Attempts to Heal with My Hands and Intent Don’t Work

This post is inspired by a question from Barry who asks why the healing modalities he’s studied don’t seem to work on him. He says attempts to heal with his hands, his intent, and help from guides isn’t returning his body to normal health and he asks The Counsel’s advice.

The Counsel sees the problem as one of Barry’s belief and they suggest that no matter how he feels, see himself as healed no matter what. See himself whole, as he is in spirit when he came into this body.

When Barry takes the healing modalities he’s learned and uses them on others and sees them as love and sees them as whole no matter what they are going through, he’ll also have more healing coming to himself. And as he gets in the habit of seeing the person who is ill or has emotional problems as whole and then use this on yourself, Barry will begin to see a difference taking place in his owns body. It’s the vibration of love and wanting to help heal others that heals himself as it comes through you.

Listen to our 3-minute session on Barry’s question to get the full picture.

Spiritual Near Death Experiences

Anita Moorjani’s Spiritually Uplifting Near Death Experience

Reports of spiritual near death experiences (NDEs) seem to have been around for a long time, but we didn’t give the subject much thought prior to seeing Anita Moorjani on Wayne Dyer’s public television special, Wishes Fulfilled, earlier this year. Anita described a remarkable experience she had when her body went into a coma and her organs began to shut down after a 4 year struggle with cancer.

Although doctors said she wouldn’t live more than a few more hours, Anita described having a transcendent beyond-the-physical-body experience of her magnificence as powerful eternal energy and consciousness able to quickly heal her body of cancer. She emerged from her coma remembering her magnificence and her power, and 4 days later medical tests revealed that 70% of her previously detected cancer was gone. Within 5 weeks doctors were unable to find any cancer in her body.

Recently after learning of a local personal appearance by Anita, which coincided with The Council’s first-time suggestion to read about near death experiences, we both felt inspired to read Anita’s book, Dying To Be Me, about her experience. We decided to skip over most of Part I (described by Anita in her Introduction as an explanation of how growing up full of fear led to her “descent into the prison of cancer.”) But the rest of the book is some of the most uplifting and spiritually inspiring writing we’ve come across in a long time.

Reading Anita’s description of her near death experience and her resulting understanding of a greater reality beyond physical reality is a transcendent experience in itself, and a wonderful reminder of who you are as a spiritual being living simultaneously in a spiritual reality and a physical reality; something The Council reminds us often. If you’re interested in learning more about who you are as a spiritual being, we encourage you to read Anita’s book.

In addition to sharing our enthusiasm for Anita’s book with you, we did a session with The Council on near death experiences and we’d like to share transcribed highlights from that session with you.

Abortion, Loss, Reincarnation, Life, Love, Expansion – Beth’s Story: A Spiritual Perspective

This post describes a session with The Council in response to the comment and questions below from Beth on the subject of abortion. The session is full of thought-provoking ideas on lots of different subjects of interest to many people in addition to Beth. Particularly interesting to us is light that The Council sheds on how our spirit’s intentions often manifest in surprising and unexpected ways in our human experience.

Ordinarily we like to offer a sort of running commentary in these posts if we feel it can add some clarity to something The Council says during a session, but it seemed to make this post too long and wordy. It also seemed to place more emphasis on understanding what The Council is saying rather than on appreciating the feeling of the energy offered by The Council and spirit in response to Beth’s questions. More and more we are learning from The Council that what’s important about spiritual understanding is that it’s a focus of attention that allows you to feel in your physical experience more of the love you are as a spiritual being.

As you read through the post, see if you can feel the energy of this session resonating with your spirit. If a clear understanding doesn’t come right away, be patient with yourself and let your connection to who you are as a spiritual being shed light on the material presented here. Give yourself some time. You are always welcome to use the Comment section following the post to ask a question about this material and we’ll do our best to reply.

Beth’s Comment and Questions

“I have a question about abortions as it relates to the Soul and the Soul’s agreement…the Soul of the child, specifically.

“You see I have unfortunately had to make the decision (twice) in my life to terminate what I perceived as ‘untimely’ pregnancies.

“I have a lot of guilt around these decisions, not because of any religious reasons, but more because I am not sure what I did was the right decision for my life’s path.

“Also, I often feel sad wondering how those two Souls (or maybe it was the same Soul) feel/felt that I chose to terminate their little lives.

“I fully believe that those Souls made some type of agreement with me, but I’m wondering if you could shed light on what those agreements may have been.

“Did those little Souls know that they would play this role?

“Is it the same Soul trying to come back in?

“Would I be able to find out more about them, and who they might have become had I chosen differently?

“If we come back in similar Soul groups, could this Soul have been one that I also lost in a previous life (I believe I was pregnant when drowned)?

“I realize that these are many questions, not one, but I am grateful for your input.”

–Beth

You Can Not Stop Life

Reading Beth’s comment and questions to The Council at the beginning of the session, they were quick to comment at the end of her first sentence.

“We really want to laugh here… the word abortion… what does it mean?

“Abort… Stop… Stop life?

“You can not stop life.

“It is all in choosing, and agreements, and experiences.

“And so we just wanted to add that in there.

“Beth did not stop a life… did not cut a life short… everything went as planned.”

–The Council

Healing Begins

All healing begins
with a change in vibration,
which is caused by a change in thoughts
and a change in beliefs.

All healing starts from within.

Is it Possible to Change Your Life Just by Changing Your Thoughts? + Helping Others

This post is inspired by the following simply stated questions from a reader named Freddy:

  1. How do better-feeling thoughts affect your life?
  2. Is it really possible to change your day-to-day life and your future with just a change in your thoughts?

On Thursday, June 14, 2012 we did a session with The Council to answer Freddy’s questions. During this session The Council surprised us with some related guidance about a question on Cynthia’s mind.

They observed that many of us who follow spiritual guidance related to the law of attraction and better-feeling thoughts, are limiting ourselves when we focus primarily on satisfying desires that aren’t also helping others.

The Council reminds us we are spiritual beings and that we planned with other spiritual beings to help each other bring the love we are as spirit into this physical dimension.

When we expand the focus of our attention to include these plans we made in spirit to help each other, these better-feeling thoughts allow us to experience the kind of spiritual expansion we came here for in the first place. The guidance on helping others begins under the heading: Cynthia’s Question about Helping Other People.

You Sort Of Light Up

“First of all, better-feeling thoughts affect the whole body…your whole mood…your whole vibration.

“You can tell the difference between a thought [like]: ‘I hate this job…I have to get up and go there…’ [or:] ‘Oh, my legs hurt…my back hurts…my head hurts…I have to go to the doctor.’

“And then you have a thought: ‘Oh, I’m so looking forward to this vacation we planned in the Berkshires. Oh, I remember the first time I went to the beach…I was 5 years old…I can still remember the sand castle we built.’

“Each thought has a different vibration. The better-feeling thought is what we call a quickening vibration. It’s like you become more alive; you begin to sparkle. When we look at you…you sort of light up.

“The better-feeling thought also affects your body. When you have the better-feeling thoughts, every cell in your body reacts to it.

“Now is it true that it changes your life? Yes.”

“When you really focus over and over again on better feeling thoughts, your thought…your feeling, is a vibration that goes out into the Universe. And as you are all learning now [about] the law of attraction, you must get back the same vibration that you are putting out. So what will return to you is a vibration that will bring to you more and more of things that will help you feel better.”
