Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

What Is Consciousness?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Mariner2Mother, who read our post, Has Cynthia Been Communicating with a New Consciousness?, and says it got her thinking about consciousness and the act of creation. She appears to ask if consciousness chooses to exist as a human being when it chooses to perceive itself as an individual, separate from everyone and everything?

The Council says consciousness knows it is one with everything. And consciousness knows that itself, as spirit, is able to multiply and create many lifetimes. All things are learning, growing, expanding, and creating on their own level, but we are one whole consciousness.

The Council says consciousness will create situations were it will perceive itself as an individual, but at the same time our higher self knows that it is one and is creating itself as an individual in this lifetime or another lifetime.

The Council says we are all connected. Your friends and family are also you. We learn from everything. In a larger sense, you are everywhere and everything. Our thoughts are shared by everyone, but we may not realize it while we are experiencing our individual lives.

As a parting thought The Council reminds us that as we help another person grow, we also grow.

This session may be a little more difficult than most to understand. We’re still getting benefits from listening to it. Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council on Mariner2Mother’s question about consciousness and creation to hear all their guidance on this subject. Perhaps listening more than once might be helpful, and let us know what you think.

Having More Positive Thoughts After My Abortion?

This post is inspired by a follow-up question from a reader named Michelle, who was advised by The Council to think better feeling thoughts after she terminated a pregnancy and she’s asking for help with this.

The Council advises Michelle to concentrate on who she is as a spiritual being and to think about the direction she’d like her life to go in right now. They ask if she feels secure about not having any more children, which they feel is a decision made by Michelle’s husband.

The Council advises Michelle not to feel guilty because she had an abortion. This abortion was pre-planned in spirit by her and the soul of the child she aborted, and she and the child have fulfilled what they wished to experience.

The Council asks what Michelle has learned from this abortion. Does she wish to get pregnant again and have another child? They tell Michelle only she can make this decision.

The Council says the aborted pregnancy was a wake up call for Michelle to take control of what she wants and not do what other people want her to do. It’s about changing her path and waking up to what she wants in her life. This is how her higher self planned to bring her to this point and then move her forward.

The Council advises Michelle to every now and then gently bring up the idea with her husband that the thought of having another child makes her feel happy. How she speaks about this can make her husband more open to having another child. The Council also recommends doing the inner work of seeing things the way she wants them to be and imagine it’s already happening, because it is happening in another reality. They advise Michelle to bring this reality to her with her thoughts and feelings.

The Council advises Michelle to let go of any guilty feeling about terminating her earlier pregnancy. As she stays in the vibration of guilt and sadness she cannot create the joy she wants. They say to go into the vibration of joy by thinking of good memories and fantasizing a very happy future. As she feels her mood begin to feel more positive, that’s when she’s able to create what she wants.

The Council says Michelle’s husband is possibly influenced not to have another child by his elderly mother living with them and perhaps when his mother passes, his mind would begin to change.

The Council says the soul of Michelle’s aborted child would like to see Michelle change her life and begin to think about what she would like her life to be like going forward. This is the reason for the abortion.

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

Helping Abused Animals

This post is inspired by a comment from EG, who says they see so much animal abuse and cruelty and they feel like they can’t do much to help.

The Council says the reason these animals take on abuse in this lifetime is to awaken people to what’s going on and to get more of us to have the courage to step forward and stop this abuse. It is the abused animals way of bringing more love into this planet.

You can ask yourself, what are you doing to change this abuse? If you help one animal, you have made a change. You have showed caring and love and are part of the change that you want in this reality.

The Council says it can be sad to witness abuse, but remind yourself you are spirit and now that you’ve seen this abuse you can do something about it and go into help mode to change it. That is why your attention is being drawn to this abuse.

The Council says as you reach out and help, you will feel the change within you. Your higher self will fill you with the feeling of love and being proud of yourself because you are part of this change.

The sad part is if you notice abuse and walk away from it, expecting someone else to make the change. You are seeing the abuse because your spirit is bringing you to it because it’s part of how you want to help in this reality by bringing love into it.

In their closing The Council asks all of us to remember our promise as we came into this reality to bring love from spirit with us in everything we do. And they say that is what needs to be meditated on.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for EG and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Can We Create a Painless Physical Death?

This post is inspired by a question from Rob, who asks The Council if it’s possible to negotiate with our higher self to have a painless physical death.

The Council says, yes, this is quite possible. They say our thoughts are able to create everything. If it’s our desire to leave this reality pain-free, then it’s possible to do it.

Listen to our entire 2-minute session with The Council on this question to hear all their guidance for Rob and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Which of Two Job Opportunities Should I Choose?

This post is inspired by a follow-up question from LearningSoulSite, who asks The Council which of two job opportunities in India will be better for her. One is for a startup IT company in the city where she is already located, and one is for a large IT company that wants her to move to Pune, India, which is a new city for her. LearningSoulSite says she doesn’t want to put herself in a more challenging situation than she’s already in.

The Council says LearningSoulSite has very cleverly created both of these job opportunities. They say the job that would require her to move is what’s wanted by her higher self. It will bring new opportunities, a new city, new friends, and to begin her life again.

They also say there’s no right or wrong answer here. If she’s in a place where she desires the security of remaining in the city where she currently is, this is fine. You will grow with this company.

If you choose the job opportunity that takes you to Pune and out of your familiar feeling and environment, you will be forced to grow and find new friends. If you feel you’re ready for this, that is the way to go.

The decision is yours. Whichever company you agree on, you will start your new life. The one that asks you to move is a giant jump in this reality; it is a lesson in trusting and believing in yourself. The other job opportunity that doesn’t require so much change, you will also grow there, but at a slower pace. Both companies will take you in the direction you need to go.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for LearningSoulSite, and let us know what you think.

Believing the Earth is Flat, and Connection With Spirit

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Audrey, who appears to have some difficulty accepting The Council’s idea that what we believe creates the reality we experience. Audrey uses the example of the Earth being round instead of flat, which she appears to believe is an incontrovertible scientific fact. But interestingly The Council seems to suggest that when people believed the Earth was flat, their belief created a reality where the Earth was flat.

The Council says the Earth is made up of energy that is able to shift shapes with the thoughts we think about it. And they add that many people aren’t at the point where they believe this is possible. The Council says at one time the Earth was flat, but along came others who began to believe the Earth was round. And because of the strength of this belief they found a way to create proof of the Earth’s roundness.

At the time people thought the Earth was flat they also didn’t think the Earth revolved around the Sun, and The Council says these thoughts created that reality and the Earth didn’t rotate around the Sun at that time. As we grow and want to make life more interesting and challenging, our thoughts change, we reach for more, and we create more. The Council adds that how we perceive our universe will change again in the future.

The Council says science and facts depend on the beliefs of people. Once you accept a thought and it becomes part of your belief system, and more and more people accept that thought, your reality will change to create that thought and you will have that experience.

Audrey asks The Council how she can stop being so left-brained. And The Council recommends looking into topics that she doesn’t currently believe and ask herself if she’d like to experience this, and she will begin to create what she focuses on and desires.

Audrey says she wants to connect with spirit. And The Council reminds her she already is connected to spirit and she is spirit. She has only to ask her higher self for signs of who she truly is and how she can create. Let her higher self give her a sign that she’s the creator and she’s not just here mumbling through this life. And be open to how it comes. Her higher self will bring her what she asks for.

Audrey says she does many things like meditation and yoga, but she doesn’t seem to connect with spirit. The Council says these things are helpful, but the feeling of connection will come from within her. They recommend she picture within her heart a small flame, which is a small part of her as spirit. Watch this flame grow daily as she meditates on this. As the flame grows Audrey will become more aware of who she really is and she will feel more connected to the spirit she is.

The ideas in this post may be challenging at first, but listen to our entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Audrey and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Some Clarification on a Recent Abortion

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Michelle who asks The Council about her recent abortion. She and her husband made the decision together to abort the child, but Michelle is having difficulty finding peace with her decision. She understands much of what we’ve posted on the subject of abortion, but feels she could still benefit from some additional clarification.

The Council says this pregnancy and abortion was pre-planned in spirit by all involved, including the spirit of the aborted child. At this time a greater feeling of love and togetherness is needed, and a focus on the relationship moving forward before Michelle and her partner are ready to have a child. At this time they aren’t where their higher selves planned them to be when giving birth.

The Council says if they didn’t abort this child there would have been a miscarriage. While there is happiness in this relationship, there is also the thought something is not quite right with the timing for a child.

Focus on creating the proper environment and a loving relationship. Speak to the spirit of the child that will come and tell them what is planned and invite the child back. Meditate, pray, or talk together about plans for the future with this child. All positive thoughts will bring this child in.

The purpose of this pregnancy and abortion at this time was to highlight was is needed in this relationship to bring a child into a loving environment and reassuring the spirit of this child what is planned. The Council believes the same spirit that was aborted will return.

Michelle says during and after both her earlier pregnancies with her two current children she was depressed and she was worried the depression would come back. Now she’s feeling depressed anyway. The Council says this depression must be changed with Michelle’s thoughts. Worrying about this coming back will bring it back. Michelle needs to practice changing her thoughts. Focus on the life they desire and bring love into this situation.

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

An Abusive Marriage and a Way Out

This post is inspired by follow-up questions from a reader named Vacha, who’s having difficulties with her abusive second husband and she wonders if her spirit pre-birth planned for her to end up in abusive marriages.

The Council begins by advising Vacha to change her thought that she ends up in abusive relationships because as she holds onto this thought and feeling she will continue to create this in her life. Now she knows this is something she doesn’t want and she is able to recreate her life going forward by beginning to picture what she wishes to create now.

Vacha regrets not ending up with a loving companion and feels suicidal sometimes, but then she thinks of her son and that keeps her going. The Council says she’s got much to learn with her child and asks why she’d think of cutting this lifetime short when there’s so much goodness that can be experienced as she creates it moving forward.

Vacha asks if The Council can see happiness for her in a marriage and a career if she move back to India. The Council says it’s up to her, but they see her having a much different and happy life. They see many options opening up for her as she changes her thoughts, focus, and beliefs.

There is much joy that can come to her. She doesn’t need to worry how this will happen. The energy she creates will bring these opportunities to her when she understands why she needed to experience these difficulties which aren’t needed any longer. She is able to move forward and experience the joy she’s looking for.

The Council says to find a way for Vacha to look for and create love in her thoughts. Find the light within herself that’s her higher self and imagine love pouring out to every part of her and around her. And as this love goes out it will attract similar energies of love.

Listen to the recording of our 8-minute session with The Council (below) to hear their guidance for Vacha’s and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Vacha has posted two previous questions. You can read her first question here and our answer to it, and her second question here and our answer to that question. In addition, Vacha has posted another question after we did our current session with The Council, but before we posted their response. In her last questions she says she left her husband and moved back to India. You can read her last question here.

Are All Miscarriages Pre-planned in Spirit?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How Remote Viewing Works, and Helping Others With It

This post is inspired by questions from a long-time reader named Jan who now asks The Council about how her friend, William, is able to remotely view places and activities that people like Jan visit in the past, present, and future, and how they can best use this skill for the benefit of humanity.

The Council says when you are able to do remote viewing, you are very connected to your higher spiritual self. They say because we are all one, in a spiritual sense, someone who is able to view remotely is theoretically able to know anything about anyone, anywhere.

The Council says remote viewing works as we become more than our human selves. With the belief in remote viewing and by trying to accomplish this, you open up part of yourself that’s ready to see what you choose to view remotely. Because we are all connected and all one, when you view remotely you are really looking at an expanded version of yourself that includes others you are connected to.

Many people, just by meditation, are able to view remotely. The first part is believing you are able to do it, and then having the patience to try it and set yourself free to experience it.

The Council tells Jan that she and Will can use this ability to help others by viewing their bodies for health information. They are also able to communicate with animals and plants. You can go into the future and past lives to see what you have come through. You can look at different lives that different parts of you are experiencing now. The Council says there is no limit to what you are able to do.

The Council says in each area the focus should always be to place the vibration of love, peace, and unity for our whole planet. And as you do this you unite everyone in spirit, and it is gradually experienced in the human body. Even in areas where there is distress and war, you are able to remotely view this and send light and prayer. The Council says to believe in the information you get and you will always lead people in the direction where help will be found.

Listen to the entire 9-minute session with The Council on remote viewing to hear all their guidance for Jan and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Why Didn’t My Negative Thinking Effect My Child’s Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by an interesting question from a reader named Lynn, who says that several times a day she had compulsive thoughts about her unborn child dying during her last pregnancy. And as happy as she is that her daughter was born healthy, she wonders why this negative thinking didn’t have an adverse effect on her pregnancy, if thoughts have the power to physically manifest and create.

The Council says they see Lynn had a great concern for her health in other lifetimes, particularly one in London that was filled with disease and poverty, and she brought this fear for her child into this lifetime to turn it around.

Lynn’s higher self wanted to create the experience of having fearful thoughts during her pregnancy so she could live it differently than she did in her lifetime in London. And The Council says Lynn created these compulsive thoughts so she could learn how to experience them and not manifest them.

Lynn’s spirit pre-planned for her to experience these compulsive thoughts, but they didn’t happen in her physical reality because her higher self, which is always trying to steer you in the right direction, provided a vibration of love, understanding, and healing that prevented the compulsive thoughts from manifesting.

Lynn pre-birth planned to have these compulsive thoughts and then wonder why they didn’t manifest. The Council says it was to release old memories from the past, which is what she’s able to do now. They say this situation was created in the vibration of mass healing from another lifetime, which is why it was created.

The Council says perhaps the next time Lynn has fearful or compulsive thoughts, she’ll acknowledge them and release the fear by understanding she created it, and she can let go of it knowing it doesn’t need to happen, like her thoughts about her daughter’s pregnancy.

Everyone in this reality has picked challenges and lessons they want to go through. What The Council likes about Lynn’s comment is that it can help people realize when they have fearful thoughts or situations, it will help them face their fear and ask how they can bring love into it, and know they don’t have to go in the direction of the fear. Love yourself and the vibration that’s teaching you these lessons, and then think of the direction you’d like to go.

Lynn didn’t manifest her worst fears because it was a lesson from another lifetime and because it was pre-planned to bring her forward to this point so she can see that fear is just a vibration and doesn’t have to manifest. Your higher self, which isn’t separate from who you are, will always take you into the lesson you wish to have, and take you through the lesson with love.

No matter how often you feel fear, spirit is always trying to help you through it. And in Lynn’s case she experienced her spirit safely taking her through her fears. You don’t need to be afraid of fearful thoughts. You can have them, acknowledge them, and say: No, I’m a spirit in a physical body and I’m here to bring love into this situation, and let the fear go.

Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council (below) to answer Lynn’s question and receive it’s full benefit, 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.

Why Did I Get Pregnant and What Can It Teach Me?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who uses the name Bundle of Emotions. She recently found out she was pregnant and immediately knew she would terminate this pregnancy. She says her spirit guides previously told her if she continued to be intimate with her partner, she’d get pregnant and end the pregnancy, and this is what happened. And The Council suggests the reason for this pregnancy is that she planned it in spirit.

While Bundle says she feels overwhelmed with shame about her decision to abort, she also feels relief knowing her decision is right for her. And the more she understands a reader named Beth’s questions and answers from one of our earlier posts, the less guilty she feels.

Part of the reason for this pregnancy was to connect with her higher self, and The Council feels she’s done this. Bundle wanted to go through this experience no matter what the people around her said or expected from her. The Council advises her to stay with this good feeling about terminating the pregnancy rather than the feeling of shame. And they ask her how she could feel ashamed of something she planned to experience in the first place.

The Council asks Bundle to think about how she plans to use this experience as she goes through others where she has decisions to make. They advise her to remember the feeling of making a correct decision, believing in what she desires to create, and believing in the direction she wants to take her life. The experience of this pregnancy is a catalyst to remind Bundle of these feelings.

The Council says if Bundle begins to meditate, or just sits quietly and speaks with her higher self so she can be guided daily, she’ll experience additional desirable adventures. And knowing she’s connecting with her higher self and moving forward with what she wants to experience, she will open to intuitive feelings about the people around her and herself.

You wanted to experience the part of yourself that’s much more powerful and intuitive than you normally believe. And if you listen to your higher self you’ll feel more stable, more confident about the direction you desire to take your life, and you’ll have more trust in yourself.

Listen to the entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) on Bundle of Emotions’ question to receive the full benefit of their guidance for her and the rest of us. And let us know what you think about this session.

An Abortion and the Questions about Change it Inspired

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Nacole, and the questions her abortion prompted her to ask The Council.

Nacole starts by saying she’s read the bible most of her life, prayed over everything, and was very judgmental toward women who had abortions because she thought it was selfish. But today she had an abortion and she surprisingly finds herself at peace. The Council interjects here it’s wonderful how Nacole realizes she was judgmental about something she was unable to accept, and how in spirit she set up going through an abortion so she could learn something new about this experience.

Nacole says she felt the father of her last child was her soulmate, but he left when she was seven months pregnant and she’s been devastated by this. Her current pregnancy is with a man who’s in a relationship with another woman and he disappeared when Nacole told him she was pregnant, which she expected. And so she decided to abort this pregnancy rather than go through it alone.

Nacole says she’s home now after the abortion and she was prepared to battle suicidal thoughts and extreme fatigue, but they never came. She can’t explain it, but she feels love rather than guilt or pain. She’s been thinking about the baby she aborted and all she can do is smile at the thought of her. And she feels an unexplainable impulse to make changes in her life life like stopping smoking, reduce her alcohol consumption, lose weight, and get rid of bad relationships with people who treat her poorly.

When Nacole used Google to get information about what she was feeling, she came upon our website and was pleasantly surprised by the stories of other women’s abortions and how much they reminded her of what she was experiencing. And she asks The Council six questions.

Nacole wants to know how difficult the process of changing her life will be. And The Council says, as difficult as she believes. They say Nacole planned this abortion in spirit to teach herself about her beliefs and her judgements towards other people. And The Council tells Nacole her calmness and very little cramping and bleeding is coming to her because the child she aborted is a very strong soul who is sending her love to get her past this part of her life.

The Council advises Nacole to focus on bringing one change at a time into her life. Acknowledging the changes she desires is the first step. Focus on what she desires rather than the difficulty of the change. And The Council advises Nacole to see nothing is permanent, everything can be changed, the direction of this change is her choice, and she shouldn’t give up.

Nacole asks The Council what will happen if she fails bringing these changes about, and The Council replies there is no failure. The only way Nacole can fail is if she gives up all her dreams, and they don’t see this happening.

When Nacole asks if she’ll ever get over her relationship with the father of her two year old daughter and find someone new, and The Council says why not. It’s her choice. That relationship wasn’t going in the direction she desired, so create from that point forward. Ask yourself what type of person you want to be with. Find a match in your mind and your feelings and you will easily forget what didn’t work out in this previous relationship and create a new one.

Nacole asks how the abortion can be changing her thoughts and beliefs so quickly, and The Council says it’s because she’s now tuned in to her higher self and this is what she planned in spirit before birth.

When Nacole asks why she doesn’t feel guilty about the abortion and The Council asks how she can feel guilty when she is feeling peace and there is understanding of how life can change.

And Nacole’s final question is will the spirit of this child she aborted come back to her in this lifetime, and The Council says they see this spirit moving on. What they’ve created together in this lifetime was enough for both of them to learn from and they both have different experiences they wish to learn now. But they emphasize Nacole will always be able to experience the love from this spirit even though they are both moving on.

Listen to our entire 13-minute session with The Council (below) to receive their guidance for Nacole and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Challenges, Suicide, and Spiritual Growth

This post is inspired by a reader named Cait, who says she thinks about ending her life every day because it’s so painful, and she asks The Council if she’s able to break a pre-birth contract she made in spirit once her incarnation has begun.

Cait begins by asking The Council, what if the path your soul chose to achieve spiritual growth actually inhibits your spiritual growth? And The Council says this is never the case. They say your spirit works out whatever challenges it wants to meet while it’s in the physical body, and while this can seem difficult from a human point of view, your spirit knows exactly why it has chosen what it has chosen and what it is trying to accomplish.

The Council says when you begin to accept you are spirit in a physical body and believe you can learn with less difficulty, and can focus on the way you wish your life to be rather than the way it is, this is the beginning of change. You always have the power to turn your situation around. When you plan in spirit whatever you want to experience, it isn’t written in stone. You create every minute of every day, and so you can create something new.

Cait says she thinks about ending her life every day, and while The Council says there is no judgement in spirit for taking her life, they explain there’s growth she can experience from going through these challenges. And if she chooses to pass on these challenges in this lifetime she’ll be postponing them until she chooses to learn from them in a future lifetime.

Cait comments that her life is harmful to her soul, and The Council replies that her soul will never create circumstances that will harm her spiritually. It creates these situations for her to grow from them, to change them, and to bring love into them.

Cait asks how she can get out of her current challenge without killing herself and The Council advises her to refocus her attention and read as many books as possible on spiritual growth that can teach her who she is as a spiritual being.

Cait finishes her comment by saying her higher self doesn’t appear to care about her or her suffering. And The Council says Cait has no idea the love, caring, and support that spirit has for her if she’ll open up to it, even if she only pretends to feel it at first.

The Council recommends Cait read a book written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel and Pat Rodegast, and the energy from this book will help her turn her life around.

The Council tells Cait she’s come to this feeling of desperation and wanting out on purpose to experience an extreme situation so she can find a better way through this. And The Council says she will find it.

Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear first hand all their guidance for Cait and anyone else who’s having difficulty navigating their current circumstances and is looking for a better way to experience them.

Stillborn Birth Revisited

This post in inspired by questions and comments from Janette, who asked about her daughter’s stillborn birth in a previous question and follows up with additional questions now.

After having a Cesarean section for the recent birth of her son, the doctor informed Janette that her uterus was only half formed, and this condition is responsible for stillborn births and several other problems. Having learned this she feels it’s a miracle her second child was born okay after her daughter was stillborn. But now she’s confused about whether there’s a spiritual reason for her daughter’s stillbirth, or whether it was just the physical issues with her uterus.

The Council replies that when she created these challenges in her life, does she understand it’s never something that just happens because her uterus is partially formed? It’s all been planned by her spiritual self for what she wants to learn, who she wants to help.

When Janette asks if her soul planned to be born with a partially formed uterus so she would experience her daughter’s stillbirth, The Council says definitely, and now she’s ready to let this situation go.

Janette asks if her daughter’s soul knew she wouldn’t make it through the pregnancy, and again The Council says, definitely. When she asks if her daughter’s soul planned from the beginning to be stillborn or if she decided when she was 33 weeks pregnant,  as The Council sees her situation it was pre-planned so she and her daughter could have the stillbirth experience.

When Janette asks if she knows on some higher level what the answers to her questions are, The Council says of course you do. They say on your higher level you have all the answers, and she knew she would experience a stillbirth.

Janette asks if she and her daughter didn’t agree to the stillbirth, could it have happened anyway because they had no choice and it was just something medical that happened. The Council is clear that we always have a choice. And they say if there’s a medical problem, it’s because her higher self desired this problem to help her experience this stillbirth. The Council says nothing happens by accident. It is pre-planned and everyone agreed to it. And they see that the stillbirth went according to her plans.

Janette says she thinks it’s the role of our guardian angels to ensure we don’t cross over before our time. She asks if her daughter’s guardian angel was with her during the 33 week pregnancy, and did it allow the stillbirth to happen?

The Council says guardian angels will never step in and change what you have planned in spirit. They’re job is to sort of hang around and make sure things go in the direction you wanted.

When Janette asked why her daughter’s guardian angel didn’t protect her and keep her safe inside her, The Council says she was safe in her. She was so safe that the stillbirth went exactly the way she planed for it to go in spirit.

The Council asks that Janette focus her attention now on the new soul that was just born into your life, to show it love at all times, and to teach it to be a loving person. As this child grows it will be very focused on what it wants to do in this lifetime and knowledge is what will keep him on the right track. The Council advises Janette to be part of the education that he needs. He’s here to acquire knowledge, to bring answers into his life, and be part of the souls that blaze a new trail into the spiritual world.

Should We Be Vegetarians?

In this question from Ali she asks if being a vegetarian raises your vibration. She understands animals agree on a spiritual level to be eaten, but she assumes these animals suffer and asks if we have an obligation to stop this suffering by not eating meat.

The Council says there are healthy vegetarians, sick vegetarians, and people who only eat junk food and are the healthiest people you’ll ever see. The difference is their beliefs. How you live a life that feels more comfortable to you depends on how you think about it. The Council says these animals do not suffer and it’s not necessary to become a vegetarian, but if you truly believe this is a better way to go, then travel that road.

Ali says she’s not currently a vegetarian, but feels a lot of guilt when she prepares meat. The Council asks her to look at why she puts herself in a reality where she feels guilty, and says only she can change it. They say explore whatever feels good to her and know that this is her higher self showing her the path it wishes to experience.

Listen to this 4-minute segment of a session to hear The Council’s full guidance.

Why Was My Baby Stillborn?

This post is inspired by Janette, who had an almost full term stillborn baby girl in February 2014 and she’s been researching the spiritual reasons this might have happened. She and her husband had just gotten married and they were very excited about having their first child.

Janette asks if her and her daughter’s higher selves knew ahead of time what was going to happen the day her daughter’s heart stopped and could she have done anything to prevent it. The idea this was an accident is difficult for Janette to bare and she wants to know if her daughter chose to be stillborn.

The Council says the higher selves of Janette, her daughter, and her husband knew the baby wasn’t coming into this reality no matter what they tried to do. The child only wanted to experience what took place in the womb and wasn’t ready to experience a full lifetime. The Council says Janette and her husband spiritually agreed to allow their daughter to have this experience and at the same time Janette desired an opportunity to work through an experience of disappointment. It was 3 souls loving each other and helping each other experience a situation they all desired.

Janette says she was nervous as a first time mother and hoped her daughter didn’t experience negativity from that, but The Council says it’s fine if the child experiences what Janette was feeling because it chose to experience those emotions. Knowing what this soul wanted to do, Janette and her husband agreed to give this soul a temporary home to experience what it wanted to learn, and then pick the time and the way it wanted to leave.

The Council suggests Janette find the love she gave her daughter and understand that other spirits might not have been able to do this. She allowed this spirit to experience whatever it wanted while it was in her body, and this soul helped her experience whatever she needed to experience going through this.

Having this spirit leave put her on a new path of having to ask why this happened. If Janette can find a way to appreciate what they did for each other and feel the great love they have for each other without any guilt, she’ll realize they fulfilled each other’s wishes perfectly. Listen to the entire 18-minute session to receive it’s full benefit.

Connecting with Your Higher Self to Manifest the Realities You Desire

This post is inspired by a question from Irina, and her question was inspired by our following thought for the day post:

“It is the spirit’s job to create the perfect life you want to live and to provide you with all the challenges and joy you want to experience. Spirit knows exactly what you want.”

–The Council

Irina comments that she’s pretty good at manifesting, but it’s much easier for her to help other people manifest what they want than it is for her to know what she wants and set an intention to manifest it in her own life. Irina wants to know how she can connect with her higher self and get the information The Council says her spirit knows about what she wants.

Your Spirit’s Purpose – Helping Others or Finding Joy?

Lola’s question

Lola wants to know if The Council thinks service to others is the underlying purpose of spirit, and her question appears to be inspired by the following quote from The Council that was posted as a Thought for the Day.

“You are pure spirit expressing itself in the physical. You have come to enjoy the dance of life – sometimes leading, sometimes following – but always with the intent to find joy in every step.”


Listening to the audio recording

Here are some excerpts of The Council’s answer to Lola’s question.

You are here to bring love into physical reality

“Well #1, you have come here to bring (as we have said before) love from the spirit into your physical world. Now many believe life should be of service to others. Helping one another always brings love into the situation, which is what we [all spirits] are going for — this is our goal.”

Loving is service to others

“There are some [who] believe [that] in their service to others, they will help the poor, they will volunteer for some job in a hospital, [or] teaching, and that is wonderful because this is needed.

“But coming into this reality, just radiating the energy of love is just as important as going out and volunteering at some particular job. … So it is always your choice. What do you feel brings you joy? With joy comes love, always.”

Let It In

An unlimited supply of love
is being delivered to you
in every moment
of every day.

It is a gift from your higher self
to your physical self.

You only need to relax
and let it in.
