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.
