Why Would I Create a Life that Contains So Much Agony?

This post contains questions for The Council from an anonymous reader after they read our post, Have My Past Lives Influenced My Suffering in My Current Life? This reader says, I’ve recently begun my spiritual path and I’ve always had questions and spiritual doubts. I’ve mostly been around Christianity, so I don’t have much guidance outside of that religion. I’ve begun to believe in reincarnation, spirit guides, and the idea that we have control over our lives instead of an outside being like a Christian god. These new beliefs were triggered by the loss of my stepmother, who was the first person to tell me about astral travel. At this point The Council interjects that they like to think it’s not that you’re starting to believe in these things, but that you’re beginning to remember them.

Since learning about this spiritual path I’ve experienced significant losses. I’ve asked The Council a question before about soul mates and twin flames and I found their answer very helpful. I often listen to your audios at work to receive their good energy, but I’m recently struggling with the will to go on. My life seems in shambles. I keep losing people close to me and I wonder if I really have this much control over my life, why would I choose a life that contains so much agony?

The Council says your lesson in your current lifetime is to learn about loss, and that there’s no such thing as loss. When so many people who’ve agreed to leave your life depart from this reality, they’re emphasizing what you wanted to learn.

If you’re on this path and you’re beginning to believe you’re spirit, if you believe in astral travel, and if you believe in reincarnation, we advise you to read about these things and sit quietly and think about them. If there’s reincarnation, then there’s no ending and there’s no loss. You’ll meet these people again in another adventure that you plan.

You say you’re learning about these ideas, but your belief isn’t there yet. When you have this belief there could be sorrow that you miss these people in your life, but along with that comes the knowledge you’ll be together again, that your life was planned, that you’re in complete control, that everyone in your life has played their part the way you set it up, and they’re all there in spirit watching to see if you’re learning from this experience.

These people have left this reality after learning what they needed to learn. It’s your turn to learn the part they played in your life and learn the part you played in their lives. Perhaps through dreams, meditation, and imagination, you can think of other lives you’ve had with these people. You can easily do this by sitting in a chair and imagining. Some people may say it’s just your imagination, but your imagination helps you remember (even though it may not feel like remembering), your imagination helps you create, and it’ll teach you to feel what these other lives are like.

In your quiet time can you see and talk to these people you feel you’ve lost? There will be a response from them. At first it may be just a feeling of getting close to them again, or your energy feels much lighter. When you speak to spirits that have been in your life and have passed on, they will respond to you. Are you quiet enough to hear this response? Don’t expect it to come in a certain way. These spirits will reach out to you, and when you can distance yourself from feelings of loss, sadness, and depression, you’ll begin to feel their answers. Being depressed and feeling lonely will block the energy these spirits are trying to send you. And believe us when we say they’re all around you.

Going forward, read about astral travel and give this a try. Read about reincarnation and imagine what it would be like. If you’re drawn to a certain time period, or certain types of food you enjoy, or certain places you want to go to, imagine you were there. As you ask yourself to remember more and more, the memories will come, and that’s how you’ll learn.

The anonymous reader asks, Can the Council provide me with some clarification on what I’m supposed to be learning, or how to make it through these difficult times? The Council repeats that Anonymous is learning about loss and that there isn’t any loss. Being sad, wanting to go home, and wanting to leave this life are all part of the human condition, but when you feel connected to your spirit and to these other people who’ve left this life, you know there are things you want to learn. You know there are experiences you want to have. The wanting to go home is to be with them again and feel the love that’s in spirit, but you want to finish what you’ve come here to learn. You’ll find the connections and move forward with that. Focus on being with these people again. Imagine where they are now and what they’re doing. Play with these thoughts and you’ll learn many different things.

Your time here isn’t finished, and so we ask you to enjoy it. And the way you enjoy it is by thinking of happy memories, creating happy thoughts of your future, and trying to imagine what it feels like that all these souls who have left you are sending you energy to help you go forward with what you want to learn.

Anonymous asks, Have I had past lives where I didn’t learn my lessons, so I forced myself to go through it again? The Council says all of us in physical reality have gone through things, not learned, and repeated it. Yet when we repeat these lessons there isn’t any struggle. There’s the thought that I didn’t quite get the lesson, or I’d like to have done this differently. We all have many lives where we don’t learn what we intended and we repeat it over and over until we’re satisfied we’ve learned everything about the subject, whatever it is.

It doesn’t matter if you didn’t learn your lessons in a past life. There’s no ending. You’ll go on and on. You’ll choose if you want to repeat a lesson. Nothing is forced on you. The way you perceive your situation you’ll set up your next life, or the life after, or the one after that to learn what you need to learn.

Anonymous asks, Can I spiritually connect with the people I’ve recently lost – my mother, my step-mother, my grandmother, and my baby sister – to try and get some closure? Or can The Council show me how to get this closure in other ways?

The Council says this closure you ask for isn’t something permanent. It’s believing, knowing, and acknowledging that in this particular life the relationships you had with these people are only finished in this particular lifetime. You’ll never be without these souls. If you need closure, you can sit and talk to these departed souls before you go to bed at night. You can talk to them in your meditations. The easiest closure we can give you is to thank these souls for the parts they played in your life, and hoping the part you played for them helped them move on and learn. That’s the only closure you need.

And then speak to these souls about how you’d like to create with them in another lifetime. They will respond to you. At first you’ll feel it in your emotions. All of a sudden you may feel happy for no reason because your higher self is still in touch with these souls.

Don’t think so much about closure, but think of these people with gratitude that whatever was planned, everyone pulled it off in your current lifetime. You can think that you’ll all be together again. You’ll plan other things in other lifetimes. That’s the only thing that can come close to closure because there isn’t any closure. There’s only being grateful, thanking these people, and sending them your love so that you all move forward.

The Council says they send Anonymous their love and tells them we’ll always be there to support you on your journey through all your lifetimes. As you grow, we grow. As you experience things, we experience those things and we all move forward together.

Is My Son a Starseed?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, SeekingGuidance, who wants to know if her son is a Starseed. He’s amazingly wise and kind for his age and asks questions that are so profound. I’m sure he’s like an old soul who’s come to share his wisdom. If he’s a Starseed, what are his gifts and how can I help him enhance them?

The Council says they wonder if many of us truly know what a Starseed is. There are children who’ve come into our reality known as indigo children. There are also crystal children and rainbow children, and they’re all Starseeds. If you seriously think about this, we’re all Starseeds because we’ve all lived among the stars in different dimensions many times.

The purpose of the Starseeds you’re asking about is to come into this reality not knowing their mission until it’s needed. Then the memory of this mission will awaken them and they’ll know how to handle it.

Starseeds are in all parts of our reality. They are the many souls who’ve come in knowing there’s something better they need to aspire to. They’re here to focus on the light and bring it into the Earth.

Starseeds need to learn about history and figure out where the human condition on this planet is at this time. They usually have the feeling they don’t belong on Earth. They’re not always comfortable in groups.

You should teach these Starseed children about the planets. Take them to the planetarium. Let them see movies about different planets and entities that have come to Earth. This will resonate with them. When they feel troubled it’s good for Starseeds to know about the planets. It’s good for them to focus on something other than what they’re doing here right now.

There’s a sense of needing to do something, but not knowing what to do, and this is very frustrating. The Starseed children that are here now are waiting to act according to what’s created on a mass level in this reality.

Both you and your son have been in many different situations and you’ve come back and forth from different lives on different planets. Each time you come into this reality you’re supposed to share what you know about energy, about possible life beyond this planet, and to expand the knowledge that there’s more than just this reality.

The purpose for your son and you isn’t known yet. Be of the light and positive thinking. Research about space. It’s wonderful if you’re living in an area where you can use a telescope. This is comforting and a great interest to the children who are on Earth and very young.

Starseeds will be interested in history. Many will go into teaching. They want to know everything happening on this planet, where we’ve come from, and how we’ve evolved. Starseeds will also be good at lecturing. Your son will be able to talk to large groups about peace and about expanding yourself with your thoughts and beliefs.

Research history. Make a game out of it. If you were talking about Columbus, ask Starseed children to draw a picture of him. Ask the child what he imagines they were thinking and doing. How did they get to where they were going? Did they follow the stars? Let the child use his brain to come up with a story of things that went on in different parts of your planet’s history. This will expand his understanding and bring in more information.

In dreams and imagination the child will touch on things they remember from another time, but it’ll seem like it’s coming from their imagination. This will connect the child to the energy of why you’re here on Earth and that there’s a bigger cause for you to belong to. There’s a greater challenge during this time, even if it’s only to teach people to get along and be peaceful.

Starseeds are souls who’ve gone back and forth from this Earth experience at different times in history, to living in space and then coming back to the Earth with more knowledge and a purpose.

Always keep the environment of peace in your home, where you work, in school, or wherever you are. This is very important.

The Council thanks Cynthia and Bob for bringing this information to all the souls that need to know there’s more to life than the human condition they’re experiencing, and to hear The Council’s words and connect with their higher selves. In this way each one of us, even if we grow an inch, we bring everyone else on this planet with us.

Connecting with Yourself in Another Lifetime

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, LilyDaisy, about what she’s come to call her dissociation, but she doesn’t think that’s an accurate description of what she’s experiencing.

When I was young I’d sometimes look into a mirror and my consciousness would somehow be different for a few seconds. As I got older I could look in a mirror and induce this change in consciousness. In early adulthood I no longer needed a mirror to induce this change. At this point I craved this experience and tried to bring it about more, often by looking into a mirror.

Now this has grown to be my waking state most or all of the time. I suppose this could be scary, but I just go with it. No matter how I try to describe these experiences I feel it’s not accurate. Can The Council help me understand what’s going on here or give me some terms I can research?

What The Council sees is a linking between you in your current lifetime and you in a previous life in Tuscany, Italy. As a young boy in that life you spent most of your time playing in the fields. In that life you always wondered who you were. Where do I come from? What happens to you after you die? In that life you always wanted to see what happens to you after that lifetime ended.

When you finished that life you brought that wish with you into spirit and when you set up your current life you wanted to somehow connect with the person you were in that life in Tuscany. What is happening is the part of you that lived in that past life is reaching out and connecting with the part of you living in your current life. These are both parts of the larger part of who you are.

In your current life you’re allowing that child from your past life to connect with you. That means that child can peak into your current life and see what’s going on and he’d experience it as a dream, or day dreams, or his imagination. That is what’s happening to you in what you describe as your dissociation. What you’re experiencing is who you were in that past life as well as who you still are, because that lifetime still exists in another reality along side your current reality.

The Council says to more effectively connect with this other part of yourself in that other lifetime you can read up on past lives to gain more understanding and you can meditate. What LilyDaisy is experiencing is not a dissociation – it’s a linking. It’s you connecting to another part of you in another lifetime.

The Council recommends LilyDaisy look into Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment, the readings he’s done, and his books he’s written. As you become more familiar with this material it’ll become easier to connect and to even talk to the person you were in that lifetime.

This connection is a wonderful thing that you’ve allowed. It was such a strong wish from that past lifetime that a connection was made – the connection between you and you. You allowed it to come into your current life because you wanted to learn from it. The more you find out about past lives, the more you can call in information from that past life in your dreams and meditations. Begin to have a conversation with this other part of yourself.


Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for LilyDaisy and the rest of us and let us know what you feel about it, or ask your own question.

Abortion and Creation

This post is about The Council’s answer to an anonymous reader’s question about how many children she’ll have in this lifetime. She says she was told by someone she’d have one boy and one girl, but she recently had an abortion and is sad at the thought she aborted one of these children that she badly wants.

The Council begins by introducing the idea of pre-birth planning. This is the idea that as a spiritual being you plan various aspects of your physical life before you are born. They say the most important thing to understand is that as spirit you are creating your physical life. And after you come into this physical reality there continues to be a spiritual part of you that is still creating your life. And yet so many of us give away our creative power to others.

The Council asks A., who told her she’d have a boy and a girl and why does she assume they were correct when she, as a spiritual being, is the creator of her reality. Suppose she got pregnant again under circumstances that tell her she’s not ready for that child. Does that mean her chances for these two children she wants is over?

The Council says you are a powerful creative spirit in your physical body and you create what you want from your beliefs. And they say this abortion has come into her life at this time to let her learn about creation. And so if she has more abortions, is her desire for children strong enough that it doesn’t matter what anyone says if she wants to create these children in this lifetime?

The Council says everything you want is already created in vibration. And how you bring this vibration into your physical reality is by putting yourself in the highest vibration you can (love, happiness, joy). And without knowing how it will happen, imagine these children she wants in her life. Feel as if she already has it (because she already has it in spirit) and that will bring it into her physical reality.

The Council sees children in A.’s life. The question is will she create this? The Council says no one can do this for her, but she has the tools to make this happen. A.’s grief over loosing a child has brought her to the point where she can change her perception of her life and what she can create moving forward. The Council encourages A. to match the vibration of her desire for these children, to know she is the creator of her reality, and then this must come into her physical reality.

The Council asks A. to see the pattern in her life where someone came along and changed her mind about creating whatever it was that she desired. The issue of her abortion is part of a larger issue of creation and what she is capable of creating when she sticks with what she desires rather than give up her creative ability by believing what other people say.

Listen to the entire 20-minute session below to hear all of The Council’s guidance, and let us know what you think.

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 Feeling Of Leaving Your Body For The Last Time

Many of you wonder:
What does it feel like
when you finally leave your body?

We ask you to close your eyes
and imagine yourself wearing a heavy snow suit.
Pay attention to what this feels like.

Now imagine stepping out of this snow suit,
finding yourself standing in the most beautiful light.
Feel this light all around you.

As you stand in this light
imagine yourself filling up
with the most incredible feelings
of Joy and love.

As you experience this,
from within this light
come many of your loved ones
that have passed before you.

They are here
to welcome you home.

This is what it feels like
to finally leave your body.

—The Council

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 27, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feel Your Way

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.

You Are Creating Your Own Reality

A Thought for the Day

You are creating your own reality.
Your reality does not just happen to you,
As it is commonly understood.

As you begin to ask for what you want,
Your faith that you deserve it,
Your focus of attention on it,
And your imagination of it,
Will attract what you desire
Into your reality.

Financial security,
Perfect relationships,
The career of your choice:

All this and more
You knew you could create
In your physical experience.

You had no doubt
That everything you desire
Will come to you
By the power of your thought.

You understood
That your enjoyment of what you desire
In your imagination,
Will easily create it
In your world of matter and form.

Your thoughts and imagination
Are like watching a wonderful black and white movie.

Now if you add your feelings,
Ta da! You’ve got Technicolor.

And as you continue to practice your thoughts, imagination, and feelings,
Very soon you’ll have 3-D
And you’ll be living the movie you’re creating.

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.”

Are You Able to Communicate with The Council?

This post is a response to a question from Robyn and a question from William who want to know whether their perception that they can communicate with The Council is accurate. William writes that while meditating recently, a group of beings who identified themselves as “The Council” started talking to him and he’d like to know if this is the same Council that speaks through Cynthia or if he’s just imagining things. Robyn wants to know if The Council agrees she can hear them even though she’s often afraid to listen.

We Are All Part of Collective Consciousness

The Council wants us to understand that we are all part of a collective consciousness. In William’s meditation he experienced The Council telling him that he is one with all, and all is one with him. The Council advises that spirit names are a convenient way to refer to themselves when communicating with those of us in physical bodies, but it’s not particularly helpful to think of The Council or other manifestations of spirit as separate from all that is and its collective consciousness.
