Can a New Soul Come into a Body After a Failed Suicide Attempt?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Ashtin, who wants to know if someone tried to commit suicide and lived, and doctors admitted it was a miracle, but the person doesn’t act the way they used to, does this mean a new soul has come in as a host for that body?

The Council says sometimes when a spirit tries to create their suicide they create a physical condition where there’s no memory of things from the past even though the same soul is still inhabiting the body.

Sometimes someone will try to commit suicide, or dies momentarily from a heart attack or a stroke, and is then brought back to life and is totally different, and no one understands why. This happens because another spirit has come into this body to take over and finish the lessons the original soul had planned.

The Council says this happens quite a bit and some people call this new spirit a walk-in. The lessons that needed to be learned by the family and friends and relationships around this spirit that decided continuing life is just too much are so important that another soul will jump in and take that soul’s place. This way all the souls associated with this person can continue their lessons.

So while they act very differently, and there’s no memory, and sometimes there’s a loss of emotion, or a very sad and depressed person can suddenly become filled with joy and be outgoing, it’s because there are the lessons of all the people concerned that must be finished.

The Council says in Ashtin’s example another soul did come in to replace the original soul, but what’s going on here is the original soul in that body is helping the walk-in. The essence of the original soul is still guiding the new soul in whatever is supposed to be happening. The original soul that left the body didn’t leave completely. In this case the new soul is helping the old soul. It’s still part of this reality in order to help itself learn things in a less dramatic way where it needs to feel the emotion and go through things. This is one soul helping another soul.

The second soul wouldn’t have any memory of things that happened to the original soul until the two souls agreed that some memory should come into play according to what lesson is to be learned. Sometimes the new soul can just take over and finish out the life the way it chooses and the first soul would learn from that experience. It’s what these two souls have agreed upon.

This is an example of how we support one another from the spirit world, helping the spirits that are still in their human bodies, and we all grow together.

How Can I Help My Children?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, StrugglingMom, after she read our post, Is My Life Purpose to Save My Husband from Himself? StrugglingMom says, this post sparked a question about whether my purpose is to help my children, especially my oldest son, and to ask how I can do that.

The Council says your life purpose is all about you, not about saving other people. When you agreed to have these spirits come into this world through you, you agreed to allow them to come in to create the kind of reality they want. They already have in mind the lessons they want to learn, the challenges they want to work through, and if they want to be of help to other people. This is all set up within that spirit. Your purpose is to allow these spirits to come in and then let go and watch what they’re creating.

If there’s a way you can guide them to make their way a little easier, this is helpful, but your purpose isn’t to save your children from whatever they go through or to change whatever you think they’re going through. Your purpose is to give your children love and support in the gentlest way you know.

StrugglingMom asks, do my children and I share any past lives or lessons to learn because we have a difficult relationship and I’m struggling to be the mother my children need. The Council says one of the lessons here is about abandonment, which is what you and your oldest son experienced in another lifetime. In your current life you agreed to be together and work with each other through the difficult times you’re experiencing and not to abandon each other.

Look at what your oldest son is going through and find a way to have discussions with him. Give him guidance on how you think there might be an easier way to go through what he’s experiencing. Discuss what you think and the challenges you’ve gone through and how you worked through these challenges. It’s by your example and by teaching your son what you did to get through your experiences that give him a basis for how to work through his own stuff.

A lot of these children that are difficult and don’t follow rules are very advanced and want to grow up and make their own rules and change things. And they want to do this quickly. Sometimes these children are called Indigo Children because they know they have lots to do in their future, but they’re confused right now with the challenge of growing up under their parent’s rules.

You don’t need to let your son do whatever he wants if you believe it’s unsafe or mean. You can explain another way he can accomplish what he wants. The more discussion you have with your son, the better it will be. Discussion can help things turn around quickly. And by discussion we mean talking about each other and to each other, but not in a way your son is likely to experience as nagging.

Your purpose with your son is to listen to him, be supportive, and not get to the point where you’re so upset you do nothing and conversation stops. This is a form of abandonment. Your son wanted to learn how to be himself, whatever he chose to be in this life. No matter how he chose to be, you would be allowing and accepting, guiding him gently another way, not through punishment or abandonment, but through listening and relating back and forth.

The Council says StrugglingMom and her oldest son shared a past life together as brothers who had no family and they both felt abandoned. In his current lifetime your son wants to work through his abandonment issues and he wanted to have parents that were there to guide him.

StrugglingMom says, I don’t know whether to push him or just let him fail when he refuses to go to school or do schoolwork. Do I punish him and force control? Or do I just let him be, which makes me feel guilty because I feel like I’m taking the easy way out and not being his mother?

The Council says StrugglingMom’s guilt serves no purpose. As a parent you realize there are school requirements that need to be met. As your son moves through school even though he’s not interested in it, discuss with him why it must be done. When he goes to school or does his schoolwork you should praise him and this will give him more motivation to continue.

If your son’s path is difficult because this is what he’s creating, and if he fails and you know in good conscience that you’ve tried to put him on a path you feel has advantages, then his wanting to fail is part of what his spirit wants to experience. Your role is to do what you can as a parent to explain how your son’s education is something he needs to do to improve himself for when he grows up. If you can do this then you’re not abandoning him. If you throw your hands up and say I give up, and your son fails, your son will experience abandonment again. What your son hopes for, no matter what, is you don’t abandon him.

You can help your son heal his abandonment issues through patience and communication, and talking about yourself and what you’ve gone through. Talk about how it’s difficult to see your son not trying. And talking about how you’ll be there no matter what road he picks, whether he tries or whether he fails This will help.

Once your son understands you’re there for him no matter whether he succeeds or fails, instead of having to continue going through the lesson of abandonment, that lesson will be changed because you’re letting your son be the way he needs to be. In accepting and allowing your son, you also allow his lessons to change and allow him to heal.

By StrugglingMom agreeing to be part of these abandonment issues, if her son fails, how will this affect her? What does that bring up for her? There are also abandonment issues StugglingMom wants to learn about. StrugglingMom and her oldest son are handling abandonment in different ways. It’s like different ends of the same stick. The son at one end doesn’t want to be abandoned even though it’s a difficult situation. He wants to see what his mother will do.

On the other side of the stick is StrugglingMom. She doesn’t want to throw her hands up and give up, but at times she feels like it’s no use. Does she give up? Does she abandon her son? Both are facing issues of abandonment and they’re trying to help each other through these issues.

The Council says one of the hardest parts of being a parent is to allow these spirits to come in and then feel responsible for how their child creates its life. You are supposed to bring the child in and then allow it to be whatever it needs to be, and to be there for your child as they go through whatever issues they’re trying to work through.

Feeling Guilty Over My Mother’s Recent Passing

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Darla, whose mother recently transitioned to spirit with Alzheimer’s Disease. Darla cared for her mother at home up until the last two weeks of her life when she was moved to an assisted living facility. She says the disease left my mother unable to eat or drink, but her memory was intact and she was able to talk to me almost until the very end.

The Council asks Darla if she’s able to appreciate what she’s gone through and that you offered to care for your mother during a time that was so difficult for you?

Darla knows her mother is at peace now, but she suffered tremendously the last few months, often lying on the floor crying in pain. I felt helpless as far as helping my mother get better and it was torture seeing her suffer.

The Council says many people come into this reality to learn about suffering, or to teach someone else about it. Sometimes as they go through this suffering they might tell you that they know you can help them, but you’re not doing it. This is just to bring the lesson of suffering further into your reality so you can feel the guilt, and learn there’s no purpose for it except to help you grow in another direction.

Seeing your mother suffer and knowing it was difficult for you, what did you experience from this? Instead of feeling guilty that maybe you haven’t done enough, focus on what you did do. This is very important for you.

Darla still feels the heavy weight of guilt in her heart as she chose to honor her mother’s wishes to die without any artificial means of sustaining her life. And The Council asks, why would you feel guilty when you’re doing exactly what your mother wanted?

Sometimes that feeling of not doing enough or trying to stop another person’s suffering is because you don’t understand the full experience of what’s going on here with soul growth and soul experiences. So you learn from the suffering.

Before you came into this reality from spirit you both agreed to experience your mother’s difficult passing. You did exactly what was supposed to be done by having your mother go through her life and ending her life the way she wanted. This was to push you forward so you can learn to experience the love you showed her rather than the guilt.

We’re all here to bring love into every situation. The love you showed by being able to stay and be a part of her passing, and help where you were able, and let your mother have her way and make her transition the way she wanted, shows you are a brave soul for going through what you’ve chosen to do.

This is what you wanted to learn. This was your mother’s way of teaching you to realize who you really are. You are both spirits who agreed to go through this difficult passing, and this would give you the opportunity to bring love into this reality. Take your thoughts and change what you focus on and look at all you’ve done.

By learning to let go of the guilt, your mother, who’s in spirit now, will be overjoyed to know that what you had planned had worked. You wanted to bring love into yourself and feel good about yourself. Realize you helped your mother, who wanted to experience this difficult passing and she wanted to see how the people around her would handle this situation. Your mother wanted to teach you to go through this challenge and when it’s over to realize what a great human being you are to go through this so beautifully.

The Council says they feel the last two days of your mother’s life she was more back in spirit than in physical reality. A lot of what you saw your mother going through during this time wasn’t fully experienced by her because she was already with us.

Darla asks if her mother forgives her for not being able to help her. The Council says this is where you’re wrong. There is nothing you need forgiveness for. Your mother loves you so much and she’s so proud you’ve fulfilled what you both wanted. Your mother has a wonderful feeling in spirit that you were both able to pull off her passing the way she wanted it.

Darla asks if her relationship issues with her mother from past lives are resolved. The Council says there’s more to come. This particular challenge is something that both of you wanted to experience to help each other grow in your current lifetime. There will be future lifetimes you’ll share with your mother and work through additional relationship issues.

The Council applauds Darla for what she’s gone through and how she’s handled it and followed what you both planned to the tee.

The Council closes by thanking Cynthia and Bob for having the ability to take their information and have so many people be open to it, and get understanding from it, and get relief from what another spirit has gone through.

Who’s in Charge of This Lesson Learning?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Tiki, after she read our post, What Happens When a Soul Learns all its Lessons? Tiki asks who’s in charge of this lesson learning and coming back into a physical life? The Council says if you’ve been following our teachings you know you’re in charge. You decide when you come back. You are the creator of every single thing that happens in your life, in your after-life, and in all of your lives.

The Council says you are your higher self. The personality you inhabit in this reality is what you’ve created while you were your higher self in spirit. You created this person, the color of your hair, the color of your eyes, what parents you have, where you live, and how you live. You’ve created all of that.

She says she understands we come back to learn lessons, but why? The Council says we don’t always come back to learn lessons. One hundred percent of the time we come back into physical reality just to have fun. We come back to see what we’re going to create. We’re going to live our lives and everything we experience, whether it’s a challenge or fun. We just want to go through the experience. It’s like playing a game or being in a play on stage. There are times when there are a few things you want to learn, but most of the time you come into this reality to sort of run around, have fun, and see what you create and how you handle it.

We always learn. There’s no way you can go through life and not learn. Whether it’s something you pick to learn, or sometimes you just jump in and live your life and see what experience you can have. When you transition into spirit again you look at all these experiences and process what you think you’ve learned, or think about how you’d handle these experiences differently, or consider you did a great job. Coming into your reality is for the purpose of creation. You are the creator and that’s what you like to do.

Tiki asks who says this is the way it is? Who made up these rules? The Council says you made up the rules. You said this is the way you want to live this life. Spirit wants to expand.  Spirit wants to live with other spirits, bounce off each other, and make up a story you live through. Life is just an experience. There aren’t any rules how you do it. You have free will. You come back into a reality you create when you’re ready. You never go into any reality that you don’t want. This is how you learn and expand. When we’re in spirit we want to help others expand and help them with whatever they’re going through. It’s all a wonderful game.

Tiki asks, for those people who say God made up these rules, where did they learn this from? The Council says you are God and you are the Creator. Your higher self is connected to every other soul that exists. As part of a mass agreement everyone wanted to expand, everyone wanted to have fun, and everyone wanted to learn. Everyone wanted to create many lives in our current reality as well as other realities. Everyone wanted to bounce around all over the place. You make the rules. You decide when and how things will happen. And there’s no pressure from anyone else, like a God you think will help you or punish you.

Tiki asks where this game of coming back to our physical reality started? The Council says everyone agreed they wanted to come back. It’s not so much you wanted to come back as you wanted to live life again. Let’s see what we create this time around. We’ll meet at such and such a place. Or maybe I won’t see you in this life, but I’ll see you in the next life. Or let’s create something we’ve created before. It’s all up to you.

Is My Current Relationship with My Soul-Contracted Life Partner?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Eleanor, who grew up in an abusive home and began the long process of recovery as soon as she left. It’s been a journey of estrangement,  homelessness, fragile mental health, and difficulty finding work, but I’ve come a long way. This journey has included steep learning curves in relationships and despite 26 years of failed relationships, my heart always told me I have a soul-contracted life partner or husband in my future.

The Council says many people get hung up on the concept of a soul contract. What you do in spirit is, as you’re choosing what you’d like to create in your current lifetime there are many souls that come forward and volunteer to be in this lifetime with you. You have a mother that volunteers, a father, friends, people that stay in your life for a short time, and people that stay in your life for a long time,

There’s never just one particular soul you make a contract with. You have a soul that comes forward and says I will come into your life and we’ll have a relationship for a time and then we’ll go our separate ways. You’ll learn from this relationship and I’ll learn from it. You pick the lessons you’d like to work on, then you’d go to another relationship and learn something different.

It’s not that you’ve failed because you’re unable to find this one particular relationship that you have a soul contract with. You’ve agreed with other souls to experience part of this life together. When you feel you’ve learned what you wanted to, then there’ll be someone that will come into your life and we’ll do the rest of our life together and learn other lessons together. You’re on the right track, but don’t always focus on where your single, contracted soulmate is, There was a contract with everyone you’ve had a relationship with.

Focus on each relationship you’ve gone through. What have you learned? What would you do differently? When you understand this and can act differently in a new relationship, taking what you’ve learned and not repeating it if it was negative, or bringing more love into a new relationship, you’ll create the relationship with the person who said, in spirit, they’d come into your life when you’re both ready.

Eleanor says 3½ years ago my partner at that time abandoned me when I had cancer. I vowed I’d work on myself so hard that my next relationship would be with my soul contracted life partner. The Council says each person you’ve been in a relationship with was a soul contract you made to be with that particular person for that particular time.

Eleanor says this summer a friend of a friend came into my life. To my surprise our lives mirrored. We had a lot in common and the union was surrounded by synchronicity. Again The Council asks what have you learned? What does it mean to have something in common with this person? Was this person a mirror image for you? What have you learned from this person’s experience that’s similar to your own?

Eleanor says this person has a pattern of leaving me and then coming back, which takes a huge toll on me. We’re currently separated and I’m taking stock. Is this my soul contracted life partner? The Council says he is a soul contracted partner and how you move forward to make this a permanent relationship or not is by reviewing all your relationships and what you’re learning from them. Is this relationship something you’ve created before and are creating again? Or are you in a more positive place and can you focus on what you can bring into this relationship? It’s how you look at this relationship and what you’ve learned that will guide your next step.

You’ve talked about relationships that didn’t last. In your most recent relationship this person has come to you as a mirror. It’s wonderful to have so much in common with this soul, but the lesson of abandonment is still there for you. You can take what you love from this relationship and move forward because you don’t want to keep experiencing this lesson of abandonment with this person or anyone new.

Take what you’ve learned with this person and put it in your focus going forward that you’d like these traits and these experiences with a person that could be permanent in your life. When you think of your situation this way you can decide whether to stay in this relationship and just change your focus and try to get this person to behave differently. Or you can decide this relationship was fun and I learned enough, but I want someone new to go forward with. You are the creator.

Eleanor finishes by asking at what point in my life can I expect my life partner to appear? The Council says when you do the inner work that lets this person appear. We can’t give you a time. We don’t know ahead of time what you’ll create. We can see the path you’re on and where it’s going, but you’re the creator and you’ll learn from your lessons.

What About My Relationship with an Annoying Friend?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Amy, who has a friend she finds draining and borderline toxic. This friend doesn’t seem to be aware of my time or feelings. She’s upset when I don’t visit her every time she calls. She talks about herself nonstop. And she doesn’t respond when I mention something about myself.

The Council imagines Amy feels like this is a question about making boundaries, but it’s not just boundaries. It’s about you experiencing a past life with this person where they were a very strict parent that punished you a lot. You were brought up almost like a slave to do whatever your parents wanted.

In your current lifetime you wanted to experience this very annoying behavior so you could learn to speak up and work through it. Have you told this person how their behavior affects you? How you don’t have the time to always be there for them? Have you said no when this person asked for your help? When it becomes too much, when you’re drained and your energy field gets pulled out of you by this other person, there’s really nothing you can do to stop it. But you can make yourself unavailable. And besides that, you must speak up. This is what you wanted for your current life.

You don’t need to help this person with everything that comes up. If you’re embarrassed or annoyed you have to stop what this person is doing when they’re doing it. You need to bring this behavior to their attention. If they laugh it off or complain, you can say this is how I feel. This is annoying. I have other things to do and I’d appreciate it if you stopped. Remember you’re not in control of how the other person handles your request, but you can still withdraw from them when this stuff is going on.

We recommend using the chakra breathing meditation to balance and align your chakras, particularly your throat chakra. This will help you get over the fear of saying what you want because in this previous life you weren’t able to do that. In your current life you can do this because you’ve created you’re life differently this time.

This person is being the way they are because they’ve agreed to help you learn how to speak up. In their human reality this person might not remember this, but their higher self knows they’re going to drive you crazy until you speak up. And when you let this person know how annoying they are, you can teach them to be gentler and more understanding because this is what you agreed to.

Amy says she finds this person so selfish and exhausting. I don’t mind being this type of friend to people, but this particular person is under my skin like no one else. The Council says your higher self knows what you want to do. You’ll get more and more annoyed, crazy, and frustrated, then hope this will just go away, but that isn’t how you set this up.

Amy says she’s trying to draw boundaries, which has been difficult for her in the past, but this doesn’t seem to last. I don’t want to yell or hurt this person’s feelings. The Council says you don’t have to yell or hurt their feelings, but you do need to speak the truth. This is annoying. This is draining. You hurt my feelings when you criticize me in front of other people. You are speaking the truth and that’s a wonderful thing. Are you brave enough to do this?

Amy says as she continues to raise her vibration this person might just vibrate out of her life altogether. The Council says she’s not going to vibrate out of your life until you learn your lesson and speak up for yourself. Your lesson is in front of you big time, and you can change this by speaking up.

Listen to what we’ve said about setting boundaries and more importantly, about speaking up for yourself. Then this person might just disappear out of your life because she’ll have to find someone else that will put up with her behavior until she learns (and maybe from you) that it’s not polite to behave this way to people.

Look how all these people are banging their heads against the wall because they’re not getting what they came here to learn. Life happens and you concentrate on things in a different way than when you planned it in spirit. You’re not seeing what’s truly going on. Just remember we’re here to bring love into each experience by showing kindness and empathy to people and try to understand what they’re going through, even if they annoy the heck out of you. When you understand these people are also spirit that has baggage and hard lessons, you also understand you agreed to help these people. And these people are here because they’re helping you, even if you don’t get it yet. It’ll all turn out good in the end. All is well.

Do I Still Have a Relationship with My Boyfriend Who’s Passed?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Special K, whose boyfriend passed away. We were on again off again for the past 20 years – more on than off for the last five years. I began seeing signs of him around me almost immediately. Does my boyfriend approve of our transdimensional relationship or is it all my imagination?

The Council says people will think it’s imagination because it’s easier to think that than to realize there’s so much more going on. And of course your boyfriend approves because he’s reaching out to you. He’s part of teaching you there’s no ending. He’s in a different form, but he’s still here. The awareness this person is still around is a wonderful gift. And there’s lots of joy for the spirit of your boyfriend when the one that’s left behind in physical reality can still feel him. This is what we’re all here for.

Special K asks if she and her boyfriend will be reunited in the afterlife and exist eternally alongside each other even though near the very end of his life we were separated? The Council says of course you’ll be reunited. When you ask if you’ll be eternally reunited, yes you’ll be eternally reunited if you mean coming back to spirit and sharing experiences and lessons you’ve learned, either from lifetimes together or separate. You’ll always be connected. You can create more lives together if you and your boyfriend choose. If there are lessons you can help each other with, then you’ll go through eternity in and out of each other’s lives.

Special K says she loves her boyfriend and wants to spend her afterlife with him and I pray he feels the same way and wishes to continue our love as a couple. Inside my heart it feels like he does, but doubt can sometimes creep in. The Council says there shouldn’t be any doubt because you will, if you both choose, be together again. Whether you’re a couple, whether your boyfriend is your mother in another life, or you are his father, or you’re siblings, you’ll experience lifetimes together. And if you choose to be a couple again, that will also come. But from your human reality and how you focus and what you think now, you’re just focused on being together as a couple. Should that come together, whether as a couple again, or friends, or cousins, or mother and father, you’ll still be happy to be together.

Help Me Understand the Deaths of My Mother and Her Brothers

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Elyanna, who’s asking about the death of her mother and the subsequent deaths of her mother’s brothers. It seems strange they were sudden deaths and occurred in the bathroom. My other uncle died recently from a COVID related illness.

The Council says it doesn’t matter if these people died in the yard, on the beach, or in the bedroom. Rather than asking why these people died in the bathroom, the important questions are: How do you feel about these deaths and the disappearance of these people from your life? What’s coming up for you emotionally? What are these deaths teaching you?

Elyanna says her widowed grandmother has been devastated due to the loss of five of her children and though she prays a lot she doesn’t understand why this has happened to her. The Council says your grandmother, in spirit, wanted to learn the same lesson you wanted to learn about what happens when someone dies. Can you still connect with them? You were both interested in these lessons.

You and your grandmother, while in spirit, were talking about this and your grandmother was wonderful enough to ask if she can get in on this lesson learning with you. We can both go through this. And as we go through it, if we have the courage to talk about it and how it makes us feel,  maybe we’ll both learn from these deaths. It will lead to a greater acceptance and not so much confusion. We’ll know we are all spirits who move on in and out of lifetimes.

It’s wonderful your grandmother prays a lot, but The Council feels what will help now is if the two of you speak about these deaths and look for their spiritual meaning. Who were these people in your life? Who are both of you and what you’ve learned? You’ve all created this situation in spirit and these deaths wouldn’t happen unless you all agreed to it. The lesson isn’t so much where these people die, but what this brings up for you?

Your family has come together so you can all work on these lessons about death and what it brings up for each of you. Keep in mind there’s really no death. There’s just moving on to another form of reality. You’ll have people on the other side waiting for you. You’ll talk about this life and what you’ve all learned. Do you want to go through a similar life again or do you want to learn different lessons? Was it fun being in this lifetime? Do you realize you worked together well? Did you all accomplish what you wanted to? If you didn’t accomplish what you wanted it doesn’t matter in spirit because you can choose to learn these lessons in your next life..

You all wanted to learn about death and that there’s so much more than this individual life. We suggest you read Brian Weiss’s books about life after lives so you get the feeling there’s more and there’s no ending. You’ll always be together in spirit with your loved ones. You’ll be together in other lifetimes if you all choose to. The Council closes by describing your family as being brave.

Will Taking Allergy Medicine Prevent Lesson Learning?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Irene, who has questions related to our post, What’s the Purpose of Chronic Pain? In that post The Council says you bring pain into your life to change your beliefs and Irene wants to know if this information also applies to allergies. The Council says every physical problem has an emotional component based on what’s going on around you. Physical problems also come from what you want to learn in your life.

As The Council looks at what you planned before you came into this lifetime, you wanted to create something uncomfortable in your life – not a great medical trauma, but something uncomfortable you could learn from. Allergies are a good thing for you to create at this time because in other lifetimes you created more serious ailments. The way to overcome allergies is to ask what the allergy is doing for you? What emotions are you holding in instead of expressing? What does my allergy make me think of? What aren’t I paying attention to that could be causing these symptoms where my body and my higher self are trying to bring something to the surface? What does this allergy remind you of?

We suggest you keep taking your medicine for the time being, but we also suggest you begin taking alfalfa. It’s very good for allergies and for every organ in your body that could be attacked by allergies. Take alfalfa in large quantities and you’ll see the change in your symptoms. Eventually you’ll feel confident enough to stop taking the medication and just keep taking the alfalfa. Drink alfalfa tea. Take at least five alfalfa tablets a day if you can find them. Sprinkle alfalfa on salads and other foods. You can’t have too much alfalfa. It’s such a harmonious food and can benefit everyone.

Irene says she’s allergic to dust mites and currently taking medicine so she’s not really bothered by the allergy. But will taking this medicine prevent me from learning lessons and healing if they are just suppressing the allergy, or is the medicine also part of my plan? The Council tells Irene you’re not supposed to suffer, so if you feel the medication is helping you, by all means continue with it. Will the medicine suppress your learning? No. Not if you start studying about allergies, what it does to your body, and what organs it affects. When you start learning about allergies and you become aware of the emotional component, your allergies will leave and you won’t need the medication anymore.

How Can I Overcome My Bulimia?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Chris, who says: Throughout my life I’ve overcome a number of obsessive-compulsive disorders and addictive behaviors including alcoholism. However, after 34 years (I’m now 46) I still suffer from bulimia. I’ve been in four in-patient centers and worked with several therapists and counselors and I can’t figure out how to move beyond this. I understand all about eating disorders, I have significant conscious self-awareness, I’ve worked with an energy healer, and I’m at a loss for how to rid myself of this problem. Any insight, ideas, or guidance would be helpful.

The Council says what you planned before incarnating was simple, but when you arrive on the Earth path it doesn’t seem so simple. It’s not like a specific past life is influencing what you chose. What you wanted to do in some form was teach.

You planned in spirit to become “trapped” in different disorders and you wanted to go through them. The way you’d get out of them was to think of every challenge you faced. What did you think while you were in each disorder? What did it feel like? But most important, what did you learn?

As an alcoholic, or bulimic, or any negative pattern you felt trapped in, you wanted to learn what it felt like to be in each situation. Go back in time, think of everything you went through, and ask yourself what you learned when you were an alcoholic and wait for some ideas to come to you.  Then ask what else you learned. It’s like peeling an onion. What did you learn? What else did you learn? And then how did you change the pattern?

What will help you complete these challenges you set up is to learn from each situation and then to tell people about them. This is how you wanted to teach. You wanted to go through each challenge, feel what it was like, and find out what you learned. What kept you in each pattern and what helped you get out of it? As you focus on still being bulimic (or any other challenge you bring into your life), when you focus on what you’re feeling and what you learned, you’ll complete the challenge.

This will help you learn how to face your challenges. The most important thing to ask is what it felt like being in it? What did you learn from it? How did you handle the challenge emotionally and physically? And how did you get out of it? All this information is what you planned in spirit to put together in a way to help others come through their own challenges.

What’s going on in your life concerning your bulimia? Why are you in it? What pushes the button that makes you bulimic? What does it feel like? Is it a control issue? Does it bring up feelings of being weak or abandoned? It’s up to you to search what goes on within you physically, emotionally, mentally, and put this information together. When you look at the other challenges you had and you see why you went into them, what was going on for you? How did you get out of the challenge? You’ll find the pattern you’re looking for and it will help with your bulimia.

Your bulimia isn’t any different than your alcoholism or any of your other challenges. Go back into these issues and see how it felt. What got you into this challenge and how did you come out of it? What did you learn from this challenge? Will the way you came out help others? This is what you planned in spirit: to go through each challenge, to have the experience, the feeling, the thoughts, the emotions, and then to change the challenge by getting out of it. And then you wanted to help others with your knowledge. This is exactly what’s happening. There will be a similar pattern that you’ll find as you go through each challenge you set up and it will help with overcoming your bulimia.

Do People Pre-Plan in Spirit to Experience Addiction?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristi, who asks if people pre-plan in spirit to experience addiction in their life, and why would they do that?

The Council says right now so many people are interested in addiction and they choose to experience it for many reasons. There’s something they want to learn. There’s something they want to relearn from a past life. There can be something they’re doing to help another spirit grow. Each person has their own path to follow in this choice of experiencing addiction in their life.

Kristi asks how God and spirit view addiction. The Council says God and spirit are the same thing; we are all God and spirit inside ourselves. Each one of us views addiction differently. Some people have no understanding of addiction, become very angry, want no part of this in their lives and pull away. They block out the addition and go into denial.

Others see addiction as someone needing help. Reaching out to this person is part of their journey just to help this spirit get through it. These people have supportive and loving energy and the courage to try and deal with these people.

Each one of us are God and spirit and views addiction differently. It’s all according to what you believe. How you view it is part of your plan for what you want to learn in your lifetime.

When you see someone dealing with addiction, try to understand their path. But more importantly, understand how you feel about this addiction. Is it wise for you to pull away? Is it wise for you to help? Are you there to learn boundaries around this addiction?

Some people want to learn about addiction. If you’re choosing to be an addict, will you agree to come into my life to teach me and help me learn about it? The spiritual point of view is what sets up what the human will go through.

There are many, many lessons to learn from addiction. There’s abandonment, when your family no longer has patience for you. There’s sickness, overdosing, and early death. It’s the experience the soul wants to have. Some people want to go through addiction and have that devastation and then find a way out of it so they know what it feels like. They can then go on and teach others, if not in this reality, then in a future reality.

Some people judge addiction harshly and they need to experience it the way they do. And along their path they may have something happen where their experience will change what they believe. Others may become very bitter and angry from being exposed to addiction and not understand it. These people may choose to become addicted in their next life. And some people choose addiction because they want to learn about shame, abandonment, hurt, death, or love when they come out of their addiction.

Coming into this world the most important thing you agreed to do is to take the love you experience in spirit and bring it into your physical reality so you can change it and make it better. The way you can do this is to allow everyone to be who they are. You cannot change someone else and you shouldn’t change them because they are planning to experience this addiction and they want to learn from it.

Send the addicted person love and allow them to go through whatever they’ve planned to experience. Hopefully they’ve also planned to come out of their addiction. If not, understand with your heart if they succumb to addiction, it was what they wanted to experience. And they’ll use this experience in a future life to help themselves, get more understanding, and help others.

The best thing you can do for an addicted person is to send them love. If you can’t send them love, then another great part of love is allowing the addicted person to learn their lessons so that they grow. And we all grow from their experience.

Why Do So Many Christians Believe Christ Died For Our Sins?

This post answers a question for The Council from an anonymous reader who wonders why a common belief in Christianity is that Jesus died on the cross for our sins.

The Council says it was planned in spirit that people would believe one of the purposes Jesus died on the cross was to forgive our sins. Many people needed to have the belief that the Messiah came and freed everyone from their sins. If they followed Jesus’s teachings he would give them a way to everlasting life in heaven. This is part of the Christian belief. Not all Christianity follows this belief. There are many who choose this belief in their current lifetime to help them through whatever other lessons they bring into this life.

Anonymous quotes a popular Christian website that says: “We deserve to die and be separated from God forever because of our sins, but Christ took our place. By his death on the cross he paid the price for our sins. Now all we have to do is accept his forgiveness by trusting him alone for our salvation.”

The Council says when you learn who you are and what this life is about, you never die to be separated from God. God is within you. These are man-made thoughts and rules created to try and get you to follow them, but the spiritual purpose is different.

Some people choose to hear these rules to go through them and question them and then find their own beliefs. What do you find comforting? Do you believe this? Does it give you a sense of moving forward with a goal of being a better person? Or is it too strict, makes no sense, and you believe there’s no separation between yourself and God?

Do you believe Christ’s death on the cross took away your sins, and you can misbehave, and do whatever you know isn’t right, and goes against your feeling good because Christ will take away these sins? What’s your belief about this?

Anonymous says this seems like a strange way to guilt people into believing. The Council says some people use this form of guilt. Many ancient teachings and religious leaders tried to control people by guilting them and preaching fear to get them to go along with whatever they wanted.

You have heard and read these things so you’d question what you believe, and digging deeper into this question you’d find more about who you truly are and find your way to better feeling thoughts. You’d discover you don’t need to follow anyone’s rules to come back into spirit, to have a wonderful spiritual life, and to come back into another lifetime and choose new lessons. Asking this question is a way you’re trying to find the feeling and the knowing of who you truly are.

Christ dying on the cross for our sins was something believed at that time and for many people this is very helpful. This did happen in your reality, and how you follow it and what you believe about it is there to help you grow.

The Council closes by saying there is no way they see in the teachings of Jesus that he was in any way trying to guilt anyone into following rules. He was only trying to get people to love themselves.

What Happens When a Soul Learns All It’s Lessons?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Wonder, who asks what happens when a soul learns all the lessons there are to learn.

The Council says we are never finished learning. There are always more levels. When you feel you’ve had enough learning you’d come back into another life and work on those lessons with other people. You’d help them discover these lessons and the answers they’re looking for. You’d be the catalyst to bring these people to the point of learning about the many things you already know. There’s always another approach, whether it’s to learn for ourselves or to help someone else learn.

Next Wonder asks if souls have to repeat any lessons even if those lessons have already been learned. The Council says you can go through a lesson again if you choose to repeat it because you want to see this lesson from a different perspective or you want to repeat it to teach this lesson to someone else.

Lastly Wonder asks if souls ever quarrel over anything in spirit, or are they always about showing love no matter what? The Council says it’s always about showing love. There is no quarreling in spirit. There is sharing, there’s compassion, there’s happiness, and there are jokes. It’s the most loving place you can imagine. That’s what it’s like in spirit.

How Can I Move Forward From a Past Romantic Relationship?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Eden, who’s having difficulty moving on from a past romantic relationship. I was with my ex-partner for a year when he ended our relationship suddenly even though it was going so well. Since then I’ve been unable to move forward and he’s still constantly on my mind.

The Council advises thinking about why your relationship ended if it was going so well. There are certain lessons your ex needs to learn from this relationship and certain lessons you need to learn. You need to review the entire relationship and get to a point where you see things about it that weren’t working. That’s part of your lesson.

The Council says to take the focus off your relationship with your ex. You can occasionally go back to it to take a look at it and learn what was missing from it, but you can’t do this all the time. Don’t let that relationship take all of your focus. Stop thinking about why it didn’t work. Stop telling yourself or anybody else you’re unable to get over this relationship, because it only feeds the energy of loss.

The way you move forward is to think about what else you’d want in a relationship. How would you want your new relationship to be? Begin creating with your mind a new relationship and stop focusing on why the last one didn’t work. A part of you understands why it didn’t work.

A Spiritual Perspective on Suicide

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Impelloe, that were raised after reading our post, Challenges, Suicide, and Spiritual Growth. Impelloe says they’re surprised The Council isn’t more discouraging of suicide and they make it seem like a viable option.

The Council says suicide is a viable option. They ask why would we discourage someone from pre-planning suicide in spirit and deciding that it’s something they want to learn from? Or understand something they’ve gone through from another lifetime? Or understand something they may choose in a future lifetime? We’d never discourage anything a soul is planning.

Sometimes a soul will choose suicide to teach people around them a lesson, like waking up to ideas they didn’t have before, or understanding love and when it’s lost as opposed to when it’s there. There’s nothing wrong with suicide if that’s what you want to experience. If you choose suicide to help another soul grow or to help yourself grow there’s nothing wrong with that because you never end. You leave one lifetime (or reality) and plan another.

As difficult as suicide is for the people who are left behind, they’ve all chosen in spirit to be part of this suicide experience. It’s not something you’re forcing another soul to go through. It’s an example of group acceptance. We’ll go through this suicide with you because you want to learn about it. It’s going to be difficult for us, but we love you enough to participate in this suicide for you.

Or the person who commits suicide does it to teach people something they desperately want to learn. We are spirits that are here to learn from bad experiences as well as good ones and it’s all done out of love.

If you know or hear of someone who’s committed suicide, don’t judge them. You can wonder what their lesson was. What was your lesson? What did you learn from this suicide? You can applaud the spirit who commits suicide because they’ve pulled off something that could have been very difficult. It was their way out to end this lifetime, learn from it, and help you learn.

Impelloe asks if suicide is ever the only planned exit strategy. The Council says suicide is never the only plan. You always have options. Some people may choose to heal. Someone who’s depressed my find a doctor that gives them the medicine they need. Some people come in with the plan that if life is too difficult for them they’ll use suicide as a possible out. They leave that option on the table, but they want to learn, grow, and find out what else they can do to change their situation, to understand themself, or to help the other people around them. There are many options. The soul chooses what it wants to learn.

Impelloe asks if someone creates a soul contract to commit suicide, do they have to go through with it? The Council says, no, because you always have the ability to change what you have planned. In your human mind you may think you want to change it, but your higher self may say no because you really want to go through this suicide. It’s difficult. We know as a human you want to change your plans to commit suicide, but your higher self knows you’ve chosen to experience it and so you stay with it.

Impelloe asks about a suicide that speaks out about injustice and changing something, like a hunger striker. The Council says if you pick an experience like being a hunger striker to change injustice or unfair conditions, then that’s probably what you wanted to do and the only way to do this was to do something drastic. If you’ve committed suicide and ended one reality, but have made a great change for others, this is a great thing you’ve done out of love.

Impelloe closes by saying they hope challenges can still be overcome and speaking out be done another way beside suicide. The Council replies that of course there are other ways besides suicide for those people who choose them.

Married but Attracted to Another Man

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who says her mother died recently, we’re moving Dad, I’m getting frequent headaches, feeling family stresses, seeing cracks in my marriage, and feeling isolated. I have deep feelings for a man who isn’t mine. I have a good partnership with my husband, but we’re different people and there are limits to the connection. I love my family, but feel burdened.

The Council asks when you’re in a marriage you say is good, but you’re attracted to another person, if this new person in your life wasn’t there would you still think there are cracks in your marriage?

The attraction you have towards this other person doesn’t have the intention behind it to work out romantically in your current lifetime. If you can understand this man has come into your life to be a friend and you know him from another lifetime, can you appreciate and live with this and still have your private life?

If you’re so attracted to this man that you’re unable to function around him and it’s making cracks in your marriage, take a look at this. This has to do with you and not this other man, not your husband, and not the death of your mother. This has happened so you can ask yourself what you want.

The Council says in another reality very similar to your current lifetime, you and this man are together romantically. Many people don’t understand that other parts of your spirit are living in other realities and your romantic relationship with this man can be working out in one of those realities. Does this make you feel good? Is it enough for you to know that you’re experiencing this romantic relationship in another reality?

But you’re here in the present to focus on the present. What do you want in your here and now? You find yourself attracted to this man and The Council says everything is possible, but you didn’t pre-plan in spirit to get together romantically with this man in your current lifetime. You pre-planned to learn about other realities, to learn how you create, to learn there are many different parts of you living at once in different realities, and to learn how you can have something in one reality but not in another.

As you become more practiced in meditation you begin to know that you already have everything you want. It’s already happening. In your current reality you’re here to learn a certain lesson, in another reality it’s another lesson, and in a third reality it’s yet another lesson. These lessons can be with different versions of all the same people. But isn’t it fun to know you can have what you want? You have what you desire in a vibrational reality as soon as you start to imagine it. If it’s not enough, then take all your focus, every day, and focus on creating it by feeling the way you want your life to be. Eventually it must come to you, but be sure it’s what you want.

Even though your day to day living may be difficult right now you need to experience it. Your headaches are because you’re jumping from reality to reality and you’re not grounding enough. The Council recommends listening to the Chakra Meditations post. You need to surround yourself in white light so that you become clear about what you want and how you want to experience it.

What’s Up With My Best Friend Who I Just Confessed My Love To?

Maria says she’s currently having issues with her best friend, Dave, who she just confessed her love to. She says he’s sort of cold to her right now, though she may be just imagining it. The Council says it’s wonderful to have the freedom to confess love for another person. It’s for yourself that you do this. Whether it’s accepted or not, speaking of love for another person is a wonderful feeling, and they ask Maria to tune into this feeling.

Maria says a close psychic friend told her she and Dave were either family or romantically involved in several past lives. The Council says as Maria continues to create her life, things can be changed but right now the relationship isn’t going in the direction of a love interest. It’s more of support for each other.

Maria says she’s learning a lot of lessons from how she handles her relationship with Dave, such as how to express herself honestly and have a wider perspective of what’s possible. The Council says this is great growth on Maria’s part.

Maria asks The Council why she hasn’t gotten over telling Dave she loves him and asks if she’s missing another lesson or should she just be more patient? The Council advises Maria to not only be more patient, because she’s able to create this romantic relationship if it’s what she wants, but what she needs to do is to stay in the vibration of love and go forward with what she wishes to create.

The Council advises Maria to allow Dave to be who he is. Be supportive without pressure to go into a different type of relationship. See Dave with love and send him energy so he’s able to work through the lessons he wishes to go through and change.

The Council advises Maria to remain in the present with Dave and to listen to him with her heart and try and be supportive. As you do this you also grow.

There’s a big lesson here for Dave about safety. As he learns to be safe with you and as he learns you’re not trying to change him and you accept who he is, his walls will begin to come down and he’ll be more present with you. Along with the thought of you becoming more loving and more patient, also see Dave becoming more trusting and more caring. When you do this inner work it’s the beginning of creating. In your feelings about Dave, love and acceptance is what’s needed and the rest will come into play.

What’s the Purpose of Chronic Pain?

The post answers a question for The Council about the purpose of chronic pain from a reader who goes by the name, InDespair. InDespair says they’ve suffered from cervical stenosis and fibromyalgia for about 10 years. They’ve been on the same medication for years, which they’ve now built up a tolerance to, and they’re in terrible pain every day. InDespair says they’re reluctant to speak to their doctor about the pain because they’re afraid the doctor will think they’re abusing their medication.

The Council asks why InDespair refuses to help them self by talking to their doctor. The pain is here as a lesson, but InDespair needs relief from medication before they can learn the lesson the pain is trying to teach. Fear is the reason they aren’t asking for this help. Reach out to your physician and explain your situation. When you receive medication that eases the pain, then you’ll be able to ask what lessons the pain has to teach you.

The reason for pain is that you aren’t allowing your life force to flow through you. When your life force isn’t allowed to flow freely through your body, pain is caused wherever you resist the life force. Focus on the areas of pain, acknowledge the pain, and know that it’s part of your current circumstances. You’ve brought this pain in to change your beliefs.

You create this pain to stop you from your every day living so you give this pain the time it needs to be experienced and to learn from it.

Find somewhere in your body where you aren’t experiencing pain, where there’s a feeling of wellness. Imagine this feeling of wellness spreading to the area where there’s pain and watch as this feeling of wellness grows throughout the body. As you believe you don’t need to experience pain, punishment, and guilt, your life force will flow throughout your body.

You bring pain into your life to change your beliefs and you grow spiritually as you begin to recognize you’re light, love, and joy. The Council asks you to take time every day and find parts of your body that feel well.

InDespair says they’ve never abused their medication, but for some reason they worry their doctor will assume the worst. The Council says to tune in to who you truly are as a spiritual being. You deserve your doctor’s help and you should ask for it. Don’t assume you’ll be labeled unkindly.

InDespair asks, “Why in the world would we choose chronic pain as a lesson, and how can I get past my fears?” The Council says we choose chronic pain to heal beliefs from past lives that we bring into this lifetime. We choose chronic pain for the purpose of changing these beliefs so we can grow from them. The pain will subside as you focus on the areas of well-being to help yourself.

One of the areas of pain is your neck, which is the back of your throat. Is there something you’re avoiding talking about? Do you keep opinions to yourself? Are you afraid to speak your truth? This will affect the throat chakra, which includes the back of the neck. Or have you said unkind things to people? This also will affect the neck area. Work on the neck chakra and all your chakras to get the energy flowing and allow your life force to move through you. If you do this you’ll begin to see a lessening of the pain.

The Council closes by stressing the importance of speaking with your physician about new medication. They also emphasize learning about the chakras and finding places in your body that feel well and doing visualizations that bring this well-being to the parts that hurt. Know you are an eternal spiritual being in your physical body. When you can do these things you’ll begin to experience relief.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for InDespair and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Preoccupation with a Past Lifetime Hinders Progress in Your Current Lifetime

This post answers some follow-up questions for The Council from a reader named Kimberly. In her original post she asked about a twin flame and was told about a lifetime around 1600 in England where she was a man who left his family. The Council asks Kimberly what she’s learned from the last post and what does she understand now? Have you received clarity to help you move forward?

Kimberly asks what happened to one of her children from this previous lifetime? The Council says it lived out it’s life and is currently in another lifetime, but this lifetime is unrelated to Kimberly’s life. Kimberly says she’d really like to give birth to the soul of this child in her current lifetime and The Council says giving birth to this soul was not agreed to for Kimberly’s current lifetime.

Kimberly says she feels horrible about abandoning her family in her past lifetime and The Council interrupts and says if she feels horrible about this, she hasn’t learned it’s lesson. Everything Kimberly went through in this previous lifetime was pre-planned in spirit. Kimberly leaving the family was something the spirits who played the wife and children in this previous lifetime wanted to experience so they could learn their own lessons.

When Kimberly feels horrible, it’s just unnecessary guilt she puts on herself because she completed what she planned in that lifetime. Each spirit, including Kimberly, was very happy at the conclusion of this past lifetime. You did what you wanted to do as a spiritual being. From a spiritual point of view there wasn’t any abandonment. You left because you had other lessons to learn in a different lifestyle, and your wife and children needed to learn different lessons without you being in their lives.

The Council suggests if Kimberly still feels horrible about leaving her family in this previous lifetime, she needs to read more of our other posts and get to a place where she understands that the most difficult experiences in life are pre-planned in spirit. It’s an experience you all want to learn from and then go on with your life. When that life ends you come back to spirit and greet each other and plan a new life. She’s looking at what happened in this past life from her personality’s point of view (in her current life), rather than seeing her past life circumstances from a more spiritual point of view.

The Council doesn’t recommend Kimberly spend much time thinking about this past lifetime. They say she’s trying to fix that lifetime and that’s not necessary. Holding onto that life will hinder her progress in her current life. She’s in her current life to concentrate on what’s going on in her current life. She’s not here to go back and find out more about her past life, and beat herself up, and wait for these souls to all show up again in her current lifetime. That isn’t the purpose of her current lifetime.

Kimberly asks what were the names of her wife and children in this past life and what town they were buried in so she can visit their graves. The Council says knowing this information just keeps her focused on this past lifetime instead of focusing on her current life. They repeat that for Kimberly it’s not a good idea to hold onto this past life.

Is Kimberly happy in her current lifetime? If not, what’s she doing to change this life? You do not change your current life by trying to go back and fix a previous life. You try to heal your current life. You try to create with your thoughts and visualizations where you’d like this lifetime to go. That is your purpose right now.

In the original session Kimberly was told that one of the children from this previous lifetime would be her partner in her current lifetime and she asks how she’ll know it’s him and what is his name? The Council says when a young person comes into her life and has a great sense of humor and a very light and happy way of seeing things, this will be the soul from the previous life.

In the closing The Council mentions to Bob and Cynthia to keep up their good work, to which Bob replies, “We’ll try.” And The Council laughs and quotes a great spiritual teacher (Yoda from the Star Wars movies) who says, “There is no try, there is only do.”

Listen to our entire 9-minute recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Kimberly and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Questions About Spiritual Enlightenment

This post answers questions about spiritual enlightenment from a reader named SoulPeace. SoulPeace has been reading about Buddhist culture lately and is drawn to the subjects of spiritual growth, human reincarnation, and lesson learning.

The Council says this is a big step in itself because SoulPeace has opened to enlightenment and knowledge that will help them move forward in their current lifetime and on an easier path.

SoulPeace asks The Council if we’re able to learn our lessons without being born on the Earth path? The Council says we need an Earth body to learn what we desire to learn when we choose to be born in a physical body. We come to Earth to learn about emotions.

There are other realities besides Earth where you experience only the energy shifts within you. You learn with your thoughts: both positive and negative. You don’t need a physical body.

The main reason we come to Earth is there is so much we desire to learn where we need a physical body to learn it. In other realities we can exist only as energy or thought forms and we are also able to learn in these non-physical realities.

When you’re back home in spirit, that is another reality. And many choose while in spirit to help people who choose to live in the Earth reality, and this is another place where you learn. You’re able to learn lessons without being born into a physical body, but these lessons are different from the ones you learn when you’ve chosen to be born in a physical body.

SoulPeace asked The Council how we can achieve freedom from being born into an Earth body and achieve moksha or nirvana (freedom from death and rebirth). The Council says every time you finish an incarnation it’s always your choice whether to come back in an Earth body or remain in spirit and not come back.

The Council says in spirit we always have the desire to come back and learn something on the Earth path. There’s always a new goal; something else that wants to be experienced.

If you decide not to come back, you’d remain in spirit and you’d learn through the experience of others who do come back. You’ll tap into their thoughts and feelings and continue learning that way. And sometimes by doing this, it strikes a chord in you where you think about trying the Earth path again.

SoulPeace closes by saying they’re trying to find peace for themselves and wants to know where to begin in order to experience this. The Council says you begin by knowing you are a spirit within your physical body that you’ve created. They say to see the things you’ve created in this life that helps you experience love and joy, and to follow that feeling and do more of these things.

As you experience one joy and it leads you to another and another, you will find what you planned to experience when you were in spirit before being born into your physical body. Know that your job is to experience love and joy and compassion for others, and the rest will all fall into place.

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

What are Our Lessons in This Lifetime?

This post is inspired by a reader named, Arvinda, who asks about the lessons she and her husband intend to learn in this lifetime.

The Council says we all have the lesson to show love to everyone, including ourselves. Sometimes there’s an idea of what you want to experience in this lifetime, and the rest of the time you’re learning how you create your life with your thoughts and your feelings. What are your thoughts attracting into this life? What experience are you bringing to yourself and how are you handling this?

The Council says your lesson learning in this lifetime is coming from another lifetime where you and your husband met in your early teens and your husband was mute (he couldn’t speak). There were many who were unkind to your husband in this previous lifetime and you tried to help him.

In your current lifetime one of your lessons is communication. You both planned to learn to communicate your feelings honestly with each other and to communicate your thoughts about what you go through daily. You are both here to learn how to listen to each other.

The Council asks if the two of you communicate well with each other? Do you stop to understand when your partner speaks? Do you try to understand the feelings behind the words? The Council says this may seem like something very simple, but they say it’s not simple. It’s a major leap in your soul’s growth when you can communicate and understand.

The Council says you then planned to take this lesson and expand it to listening to your children. Are you there for them? Have you helped them learn to communicate their truth and feelings? Do you show understanding? They say this is a major lesson.

And The Council says you wanted to expand this lesson further. How are you with the rest of your family? your neighbors? with people you work with? Do you listen to them? Do you try to understand what they are saying? Do you show patience and concern with these people? And most of all, do you show love with your words and your actions?

In this lifetime you and your husband wished to open your home to others and have them feel welcome. Do you do that with your family? with your neighbors? It was a great wish to have people come and feel safe.

You say you’ve done much, but haven’t received back what you’ve given out. The Council says when you do for others, you do from your heart, not with the thought of getting something back for what you’ve done. When you feel annoyed, that’s your higher self saying that you’re not going along with what you planned.

The Council says listen to your children and your neighbors and be there for them. Show love and show everyone it’s good to communicate. That’s how we connect in our physical reality.

The Council says it’s particularly important to get your husband to communicate because that’s what he’s carried over from the other lifetime where he wasn’t able to speak. You will coax each other to communicate.

Listen to the audio recording of our entire 11-minute session with The Council to hear their guidance for Arvinda and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel.

Relationship Advice

This post is inspired by a relationship question for The Council from someone who goes by the name, Very Confused. She begins by saying she fully believes she gets exactly what she asks for and The Council clarifies this by saying you get exactly what you create. Everything that comes to you is created by you. Her desire for what she wants and her repeated thinking of it is how she’ll create it.

Very Confused says she’s in a romantic relationship that she asked for. She’s recognized the beautiful paths of other relationships and has used that feeling of love to create this relationship. The Council says this is excellent. As she acknowledges what brings her joy, that’s the way to bring it into future relationships.

She says most of what she wants in this relationship is present except for a few things she finds crucial, and she wonders if this is a test for her self love. The Council asks who Very Confused thinks is testing her? There isn’t a God out there who tests people. If anyone is testing her, she is testing herself by creating some of what she wants, but not all of it.

The Council says the way to create the rest of what she wants is the same way she’s already created the changes she’s experienced, and that’s by visualization, feeling what she desires, and writing about it. It will all come from her, and this test is her asking herself if this is enough? Does she settle for what she already has or does she keep on creating everything she desires?

Very Confused says she’s concerned her partner isn’t good enough for her any more and she suspects this is a lesson that her self love isn’t where she intends it to be. The Council says no one is perfect and everyone comes with what we call flaws. These flaws are there to help her grow, not to help the other person change. When life is difficult for her, this is a sign it’s something she requested before coming into this lifetime. It’s not about the other person. She created this experience for her to grow from so that when she leaves this lifetime she’s learned from this experience and she’s proud her perception has changed.

The Council suggests looking at the things that aren’t perfect in her relationship and know that this person is a spirit that’s in her life because she’s made an agreement with him to to make her life difficult so she can grow by bringing love into this relationship. The Council says Very Confused can create a new partner, but she’ll face these flaws again in her next relationship or her next lifetime, until she learns the lessons she desires to learn from these flaws. As she learns these things that help her grow, this person who isn’t perfect will seem close to being perfect.

Very Confused asks if this relationship is an opportunity where deep nurturing love can be found, or is she to accept this man as he is and choose self love? The Council says as she accepts her partner in the moment, she’ll feel more love for him. And when she’s feeling love and acceptance, she’ll feel more self love.

Very Confused says she tends to be analytical and wonders if this is working against her. The Council recommends she stop analyzing and go with the flow. It’s best not to analyze. Get her brain out of the way and come from her heart.

Very Confused finishes by asking The Council what her purpose is in this lifetime. The Council says it’s to bring love into this reality, to accept what’s around her, and to grow and help other spirits that are around her. As she does this she’ll create the path she desires, always knowing that she’s the creator of what happens in her life.

The Council says the choice is always Very Confused’s whether to stay in the current relationship or not. And as she works in this relationship she has to work within herself to see the relationship differently, to grow from it, and to bring love into, even though it’s difficult sometimes. But they also say to stay and see how she grows from this relationship, and if it doesn’t change, it’s not the other person’s fault. It’s about whether she’s doing enough work, is she appreciating the relationship enough, is she allowing this person to go through whatever they have to go through? Is she there to help the two of them grow?

Listen to the recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Very Confused and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Spiritual Rituals, and Friendship

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named, Vacha, who’s asked The Council several questions in the past. Her current questions are about rituals that her spiritual leader in India recommends, and about her past lives and pre-birth plan for her and two close friends.

Spiritual Rituals

Vacha says they have a spiritual leader, or Guruji, they go to for guidance, mostly related to family issues and gaining spiritual knowledge. She says sometimes their Guruji recommends spiritual rituals that often have the intended effect and other times the ritual’s effects seem temporary.

Vacha questions the authenticity of these rituals in light of what she’s read about spirituality and The Council’s guidance in our posts. She questions whether these rituals work because she believes they’ll work, and they don’t work when she believes they won’t.

Vacha mentions The Council says we need to learn lessons for our soul to grow, and in spirit we often choose Earthly experiences that turn out to be difficult for us to handle. Her question is a little unclear on the following point: She says when we’re born and feel what we’ve chosen in spirit is too difficult, we resort to performing spiritual rituals and she asks if these rituals have any effect, or can they postpone learning the lessons we’ve chosen.

The Council asks if it’s occurred to Vacha that questioning rituals will change how things appear in her life. Everything you experience in your reality is how you look at it, they say. By doubting these rituals The Council says Vacha is unable to create what she wants.

The Council says you will learn what you have planned in spirit to learn. There is nothing that can stop this, but your thoughts can slow this down to the point where it may take more than one lifetime to learn what’s planned. And they repeat that everything you create in your life will or will not happen based on the way you think and what you believe about it.

Past Lives and Pre-Birth Plan with Two Friends

On another subject, Vacha says she feels a past life connection with two close friends who support her when she’s going through difficulties, and she asks The Council about these past lives and her pre-birth plan with these friends.

The Council says there are many past lives, and they are here now to help Vacha through her lessons and offer support when the challenges become difficult. But The Council mentions that Vacha pre-planned she would also be there for her friends and they ask her what she does for these friends that shows love. How does Vacha return her friends’ love? What was planned was a circle of love between the three of them. The Council asks Vacha not to only receive love from her friends, but to be aware of how she returns the love.

Vacha mentions she particularly loves her friend, Pragna, who’s in the USA while Vacha is in India. Vacha asks if The Council sees her and Pragna getting together again and The Council says this can happen if Vacha follows through and does the inner work of returning the love that The Council suggests.

The Council suggests Vacha meditate on the information they’ve provided in this and other posts and work it into her life. As she does this she’ll see the changes she desires in her life. The say just receiving an answer doesn’t heal the situation.

Listen to our entire 12-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Vacha and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

What is the Spiritual Role of Abortion Clinic Staff?

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Trying To Learn. They ask what is the spiritual role of the abortion doctor and clinic staff.

The Council says for each individual it is different. Every abortion doctor and staff person does not have the same lesson. The Council says this applies to the women who are receiving the abortions as well. For each woman the decision to abort brings different lessons.

Trying To Learn asks if women regret their abortions does this have a negative impact on the doctor and staff of the abortion clinic. The Council says some doctors are affected by what they see going on around them. They feel good when the woman is thankful for the abortion, and they feel sad when they feel a woman is aborting because she feels she has no other choice. All lessons are different.

Trying To Learn asks about the role of the protesters outside the abortion clinic. The Council says each protester does this because they see it as their duty to save the lives of the unborn children, but each protester has their own thoughts and focus on how they handle every challenge in their life.

Trying To Learn asks if The Council can shed any spiritual light on the practice of abortions in countries where it is illegal. The Council says while each individual has their own challenge, they also say that in time this can change through beliefs and health systems that want to make things better. These countries will learn from what they see in other countries. The Council recommends sending light and love to the people in these countries and this will help these people grow and open their minds and hearts to a better way of handling unwanted pregnancies.

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

Is My Pregnancy a Mistake?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who gives the name, Anon. She’s recently found out she’s pregnant after trying for 18 months, but now is afraid this pregnancy is a mistake. The same thing happened 18 months ago, but she miscarried. Anon says she’d never have an abortion, but keeps asking the soul to leave because she’s afraid having a child now will upset her family’s “lovely life”.

The Council begins by telling Anon a good question to ask herself is why she’s been trying to get pregnant if she feels the same way about this pregnancy as she felt when she miscarried 18 months before?

Anon says she wanted a sibling for her daughter, but now she’s scared. The Council recommends she practice changing her thoughts from fearful ones to ones of this child adding to the family’s happiness and increasing the family with love. They feel this is what Anon planned as a soul before she was born, but The Council adds there isn’t any reason for regret or anxious feelings if she doesn’t give birth to this soul.

The Council says when you create in spirit you have an idea what you’d like to experience in your human life. Once you are here you forget what you planned and this reality gets in the way. They say perhaps Anon has changed her mind because there is so much fear and she doesn’t know how to get past it.

The Council says to get past the fear Anon must come from the vibration of love. And they say she has the choice in every moment to stay in the fear, or imagine she’s ready to expand on the love she has with her family by giving birth to this child.

The Council says if Anon allows this spirit to be born, she is on one path these souls agreed to. And if she decides not to have this child, this was also part of the agreement. The Council says there is love in both decisions and Anon needs to stay in this vibration of love whatever direction she decides to take.

The Council says currently this child has no plan of miscarrying. They say if Anon tells this soul every day she’s changed her mind and doesn’t want the child to be born, she can cause a natural miscarriage. But they repeat that from their point of view this child currently plans on being born.

The Council repeats if Anon is determined not to go forward with this pregnancy, this is perfectly alright. But they also say Anon and this soul have been together in other lifetimes, they have many lessons they wish to learn together in this lifetime, and if this soul comes into this reality it will give Anon a lot of strength and pleasure.

The Council says Anon is experiencing the fear of the unknown, but she’s been told she knows this soul from before, they will have an interesting life, and they will learn many things together. They say the choice is Anon’s.

The Council says if Anon miscarries, this soul will return to her if she becomes pregnant again because they have many things they want to learn together.

While we like to think these sessions with The Council are important to the the person who asks the questions, this session seems to offer a broader wisdom we hope many listeners will appreciate. Listen to the entire 11-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Anon and for the rest of us.

Relationship Advice (What Have You Learned?)

In this post we answer Tanya’s question about a man and their on-again off-again relationship. Back in March 2013 Tanya asked a previous question about this relationship and to answer it we published the post, Why Would Spirit Choose to Be a Human Being Who Experiences Pain.

In that 2013 session The Council predicted Tanya would get back together with this man, and she starts her current question by confirming The Council was right. They got together at the beginning of 2015 and he proposed marriage to her, but the next day he changed his mind and Tanya’s been feeling depressed about this.

The Council informs Tanya she created coming together with this man because there was something to be learned from this relationship. She asks if they see the two of them reconnecting again, but she also says they’re not currently speaking and it’s okay if they don’t speak again.

The Council restates what’s important for Tanya is to learn what her experience with this man has taught her. They do see another coming together and they say if it’s her desire to make this relationship work, there will always be a way.

The Council encourages Tanya to focus on herself now instead of waiting for this man to come back into her life. They say it’s wonderful to choose to move on, and it’s also wonderful to stay with this man. When she finds out what she’s learned from this relationship, she’ll handle the situation differently and she’ll be happier with her choice.

The Council is pretty clear there is no right or wrong path for Tanya the next time this man comes into her life. It seems the important thing is to take this time to figure out what this relationship means to teach her. And with this information it will be up to her how she handles the next time.

Listen to the entire 8-minute session to hear all of The Council’s guidance for Tanya, and let us know what you think.
