Should I Contact My Dead Father Through a Medium?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, JERL, who says lately in my spiritual journey I’ve been drawn to my painful past and memories of my early childhood when I was neglected by my father and step-mothers. The Council says this is wonderful because you pre-planned in spirit to do this and it means you’re ready now. You’re ready to look at these memories, to go over what’s happened, change how you think about it, change how you understand it, change how you feel about it, and how to figure out how to let it go.

JERL says, I’m trying to sit with the sadness, but I keep feeling drawn to meeting with a medium to talk with spirit about my father who I was happily estranged from for ten years before he killed himself last year. The Council says there’s light and joy on the other side of the sadness. Just sit with it. The more you can sit with your sadness you’ll see it won’t kill you or hurt you. You’re remembering an emotion and you’re remembering it in order to go through it and heal it.

JERL says his father was very negative and part of JERL is afraid that even in spirit he’ll cause me painful memories if I speak with him. The Council says if you truly connect with your father’s spirit, and you don’t need someone else to help you do this, there won’t be a single negative thought, or negative word, or anything that would be said that can hurt you.

Unfortunately, in your reality people feel they have to go to someone else in order to speak with someone who’s passed into spirit. Meditate. Talk to your father in your mind and this other person won’t be necessary. Many of these mediums and psychics are very good, but what isn’t commonly understood is that they often don’t connect with the spirit of the person you want to connect with. These mediums are connecting with these people’s essence of who they were when they were alive.

When a medium gives you negativity or tells you something horrible that this spirit says to you, it isn’t who the spirit truly is. The medium is just connecting with who the person was when they were alive. When you connect with spirit it will be beautiful. If you feel you need someone to connect you with your father, keep searching until you find the right medium. All good mediums that give you messages from spirit will be helpful, they’ll make you laugh, there will be talk of love, and there will be great understanding.

JERL continues, on the other hand I’d like to understand what my father’s life goals were and be able to forgive him so I can pray for his well-being every day. The Council wants you to know that you chose your father to play this role in your life. You both got together in spirit and planned how your life would be and how you could learn from it. How your father behaved was part of the act he put on. It was like being on stage. He played a part. He lost track of who he truly was as a spiritual being. He was hurt as a child and this negativity and hurt carried through to his adult life. Unfortunately it affected you.

Know there are reasons your father was the way he was. It wasn’t your fault. This was something you both agreed in spirit to experience. When you think of your father, what did he teach you? What kind of person did it make you? When you understand that in reality he had his problems and they caused him to be the way he was. There were lessons your father wanted to learn.

When you think of your father, can you think of him having his own challenges? Think of how he was hurt and suffering inside. How you were treated doesn’t make it right. It was part of the deal you made with your father in spirit. When you think of him being negative and suffering, what did this teach you? What did you learn? When you can repeatedly look at your father’s negativity, no matter how many times it takes, and not feel sadness, even if you go numb, if you no longer hurt from it, you’re starting on the path of forgiveness. Know you’ve come through what you’ve experienced. What have you learned? The purpose of experiencing this neglect is to understand what you’ve learned.

JERL continues, I understand I chose my father in order to learn my lessons and that we were friends and enemies in other lives. In my current life, putting a boundary between him and me has been healthy for me. The Council says it’s wonderful you knew exactly what you had to do to make your life better. There’s no guilt in that.

JERL says he’s wary and a little scared of his thoughts that it’s time to reconcile with his father. The Council says if you truly want to reconcile, this will happen when you begin to understand your father had his challenges. He played the part he was supposed to in your life, and he did this to help you grow and learn because that’s what you wanted. All this thinking about your past will help you move forward. Then you’ll be ready to forgive. It’s not that someone is telling you it’s time to forgive. You’ll know it’s time because you’ll have more understanding.

JERL asks if he should trust his urges and meet with his father in spirit through a medium? The Council says if you go to a medium who gives you scary or angry messages, or any message that makes you feel bad, don’t go back to this person. Find someone else and you’ll see the difference in the messages that come through.

Your father has reviewed his life and knows he did his part. He’s sending you light to help you get to a place of forgiveness. When you’re ready, you’ll let this light in.

Learn to meditate. Sit quietly in a chair, even if it’s for five minutes a day, and picture your father’s face. This may be difficult in the beginning. Then begin to speak to your father. You can tell him how you feel and what your experience with him has done to you. Ask your father to let you know it was all part of your spiritual plan. Ask for information and your father and your spirit guides will help you get it. Somehow you’ll just know the answers to your questions. It’s not like you’ll hear a word for word explanation. It will come all at once in a block of feeling. Everything will lift and you’ll realize you’re surrounded by guides, angels, and beautiful light energy.

Since you’ve gone through this painful history it’s now helping you move past it. Before you go to bed you can ask for information or ask to feel forgiveness. When you feel this forgiveness you’ll be able to connect with your father, because the negativity between you and spirit will prevent this from happening. If you do the work and take the time, you’ll find the answers you seek. No one else is needed.

Why Can’t Lesson Learning Be Easier?

This post answers questions from an anonymous reader who says that learning lessons is a very good thing, but I don’t understand why we have to learn our lessons with so many challenges like suicide, murder, alcoholism and drug addiction.

The Council says not all lessons are challenges and not everyone chooses to experience the challenges you mention. Some people need to learn to feel joy, to feel free, to feel wonderful, or to connect and realize who you are. All these experiences aren’t challenging. Every lifetime you pick a different situation, different things you want to experience, and different reasons you want to experience it. Some are challenging and some are wonderful.

Anonymous says they wish The Council would make it easier for people to learn lessons. The Council replies they take no blame and no credit for the lessons you choose. We are not in charge of everyone. We can’t make anything harder or easier for you. Why is it our choice to pick your lessons for you? You are in control.

The Council says when you are in spirit and you are choosing these challenging lessons they don’t seem difficult. It’s something you’re looking forward to in order to see how you’ll grow from these lessons, how you’ll bring love into these situations, and knowing when you finish your life and come back into spirit you’re fine. What have you learned from this experience? How did you handle it? This is how you learn about you.

Can You Experience Your Twin Flame’s Emotions Before You Meet?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Brooke, who’s in a relationship with her twin flame and she asks if you can experience strong emotions from your twin flame before you even meet them.

The Council begins by saying that a twin flame is a spirit you’ve worked with together in many lifetimes. The Council says you can recognize your twin flame by having a lot in common and that’s the case with Brooke and her partner.

The Council says Brooke and her partner aren’t the only ones to set up a reality where they’ll work with a twin flame. When it’s important for you and your partner to learn something together, a way is created for you to recognize each other. You truly begin to listen to what the other spirit is saying so you can learn from it and bring it into your reality. And as Brooke learns things she can share this and the two of them will grow.

You’re working together, and sometimes it’s on many different lessons you wish to go through, but you need someone to help you go through it, and this is why you’ve created a twin soul. There’s an agreement between the two of you to come together at a certain stage in your lives and you’ll recognize each other by an experience you’re both going through. In your case there are childhood issues you both went through. This brought you together and the learning can last an entire lifetime.

The twin flame situation touches on the lesson of love and trust, and knowing we’re not alone. What you face isn’t a horrible punishment, but it’s what you’ve created to learn from. There’s comfort in knowing someone else has gone through the same thing. You aren’t a bad person if you have a hard time in one area or another. Someone else is sharing this experience and going through it.

There’s a safety in working together with another spirit. The Council advises that whatever you work on or try to understand, put joy into it. Have gratitude for having met and recognized each other, and you’re evolved enough to know that twin flames exist.

Brooke finishes by asking The Council if her partner could have been experiencing her traumatic childhood and she experienced his through their twin flame connection long before they met? And The Council simply says, “Yes.”

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

What About Evil People?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Trying To Learn, who asks about people who do bad or evil things on Earth, such as serial killers, mass shooters, and dictators who commit genocide.

The Council says, somewhat surprisingly, that people who do these so-called bad things have agreed to this in spirit with all souls involved so that each soul can have the experience they desire on Earth, which apparently includes learning lessons from what these ‘bad’ people have done.

The Council says these souls agree to go through acting bad to teach other souls the lesson of how to stay in love and protect one another. And when this isn’t done, learning the lesson of how things can get out of hand. Then it’s the choice of each soul to work with their higher self to bring peace and love into this situation and remember we’re all souls here to support each other.

The Council says the souls that agree to be the most horrible people have agreed to this to teach a major lesson that thousands or millions of people wish to learn because they wish to learn together how to change this situation.

From a spiritual point of view there aren’t any bad people. The question is how can we support each other to stay in the vibration of love by rescuing one another, caring for one another, and by changing the situation for the better, having it end, and then experiencing what we have gone through and learned from it. And this knowledge becomes part of the collective whole and every soul, whether you were in this Earthly reality when it happened or still in spirit, will learn from this situation.

Trying To Learn asks if the spirits of these ‘bad’ people interact with the spirits of those whose death they facilitated. The Council says as we all come together in spirit, there’s a great appreciation for what these ‘bad’ people have done. In spirit these people held up their agreement of what was supposed to happen. They played their part. And as all spirits continue to look back on what’s happened and learn from it, there is only peace and love on the part of each spirit. In this light Bob asks if the spirit of Adolf Hitler is regarded very well by other spirits and The Council says, “Exactly”.

Trying To Learn (Bob incorrectly identifies her as Audrey on the recording) asks if these ‘bad’ people receive any sort of punishment when they return to spirit. The Council says the only punishment they’d receive would be something that is self inflicted. If they don’t remember their agreement with all the souls involved, they might feel guilty and not understand that what they created was very acceptable and many lessons were learned.

If the souls of these ‘bad’ people can’t let go of a past reality and are stuck in the emotions and personality they played while on Earth, they can choose to create punishment for themselves. Bob asks for an example of what a punishment might be.  The Council says, as some people believe, there’s a Hell and you’ll be forever in darkness. Some people’s Hell would be abandonment. There’s the well known version of Hell where you’re in fire. Whatever you believe Hell is, you can experience this because you’ll create it, until at some point you realize this isn’t the way it’s supposed to be. It’s an illusion you’re temporarily stuck in.

You’d realize it’s an illusion because there are other souls around you that would try and help you through this by sending you higher vibrations of love and acceptance. When you finally allow this love and acceptance and begin to feel it, you’ll let go of the personality you were and the role you played. Then you’ll be able to come together with other spirits and learn from this experience.

Trying To Learn asks if the soul of these ‘bad’ people has a choice to reincarnate and if they do, will they be punished on Earth. The Council says these souls always have the choice to reincarnate. Why they reincarnate would be up to them. They can create a wonderful reality. Or they can choose to redo some horrible experience from another lifetime. Trying To Learn closes by saying, “Or is there no punishment,” and The Council says there isn’t any punishment.

Listen to the entire 8-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Trying To Learn and the rest of us. It’s a very interesting session. And let us know what you think.
