How Can We Change the Life We Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, PE, who wants to know how to change the pre-birth plans they made when they were still in spirit, and they give the following example. If you’re very sick, can you decide you’d rather not deal with the issue of sickness in your current lifetime and your body will heal itself?

The Council explains that the experiences we wish to go through once we enter our physical lifetime are chosen by us in spirit to help us grow. During your spiritual pre-birth planning, sometimes you pick a lesson that will be very difficult once you enter physical reality, although in spirit it doesn’t feel like it will be difficult. The spirit chooses to have the experience because it wants to learn from it and grow. When you pre-plan something in spirit, your higher self knows why you want to go through this. But in your physical lifetime as you face these difficulties you may say, “I’ve had enough. I don’t want to deal with this.” But your spirit knows better; it knows how much it wants to go through this experience to learn and grow from it.

When you’re going through an experience and find it too stressful and it prevents you from experiencing other things you desire to experience in that lifetime, you can go through part of it and decide to continue it in another lifetime instead. But that’s the human part of you making that decision. The spiritual part of you will help you get through a difficult experience and when you finally learn the lesson, the body will instantaneously heal.

Sometimes all you need to realize is that the healing comes from within you. When you realize you’re a powerful spiritual being in a physical body, you can change your life. Many people who go through an illness don’t feel powerful and go through it without understanding this is something they chose in spirit. They think let me ease this experience and continue it at another time. The Council says it’s possible to do this.

But The Council adds that what you experience is what you believe. If you believe you’ve chosen this difficult illness in spirit, you can speak to your spirit in meditation and prayer and ask for this difficulty to change. If your faith and your belief are strong enough, you can do this. You, as a human being, are always in control with your thoughts, with how you look at each experience, and how you try to understand the lesson behind the difficulty.

The Council says whatever lesson we choose to go through in this physical reality we always come for one reason and that’s to figure out how to bring love into the lesson we’re going through? How can I learn to love in this situation? How do the people around me learn to love in this situation? Always know you can reach out to your higher self in meditation or prayer and ask to be shown the lesson you wished to learn. Ask to see this lesson the way you presented it to your spirit guides when you pre-planned it. And ask to remember who you truly are as a spiritual being and that you have a choice in your physical life.

As a human being having an uncomfortable experience you can say, I’ve had enough, I don’t want to deal with this difficulty any more. But who you are as a spiritual being knows it has to push you through this difficulty. It was your desire to get through this experience. But if it seems too much for you right now, you can ask to let yourself learn from what you’ve experienced so far, and continue this lesson in another lifetime.

When you meditate and connect with your higher self, a dialogue begins and your higher self will know how to get you through this difficulty, how to make it easier, or how to change it. You are your higher self. You have access to your higher self when you meditate, whether you feel it consciously or not. You have access to your higher self when you pray. You have access to your higher self when you dream.

When you learn you are your higher self, which creates the human part of you that’s going through this difficult experience, that spirit part of you is coming with you on this journey and is seeing how you handle each experience. Your higher self understands what was agreed upon before you came into your physical reality and it knows how the human part of you can handle the difficulty.

Meditate and visualize healing energy around you. Know your connection to your higher self is there, even if you don’t feel it consciously. The more you think of the way you want your life to be, your life will adjust to these thoughts. Take time to meditate and speak with your higher self. You may not remember what you planned. Your life may be difficult and you think you can’t learn from it. Can you find a way to change your life? Can you make it less traumatic? But you have to reach out with your thoughts, knowing that you’re connected to your higher self.

Many people believe there’s the human part of you, and your spirit part is way off somewhere else. It’s not. You are that spirit part of you. When you think you bit off more than you can chew, the higher part of you knows what you planned and why you planned it. If you believe your higher part can ease your difficulty, it can. If you believe your higher part can cure your illness, it can. Each lesson you go through brings you to the understanding you’re not a victim. When you know there is an answer to your questions – and you don’t have to know how your answer will come –  the answer will come when you’re open to it. But you have to think, “I am the one who will change this. I am the one that will connect with the part of me that has all the answers.” And when you let go of the fear and the discouragement the answers will come.

Play with the reasons you could have planned your difficulty. Many people use illness or a disability as a punishment. The Council says that’s only a thought in the human mind that you’ve carried with you into this world, and you’ll create the disease or the disability if you feel there’s a reason for this. When you connect to spirit, you’ll know that everything you think you should be punished for was just an experience for you to learn from. There’s no one here keeping track of how far you’ve come or if you’ve been punished long enough. The answer comes in prayer and meditation. In your quiet time your answers will come.

The Council ends by saying they think some who hear the guidance in this post won’t find it easy to understand, and they say this is fine. Listen to it again and again and do the mediations, and talk to your spirit, and you’ll see the difference in your lives.

Listen to the entire 17-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us. A session like this one is particularly difficult to recap with just the highlights, as we’ve attempted to do in this written summary. And let us know what you feel about this session.

Is My Boyfriend Interested In Marrying Me?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Curious, who says she’s been with her significant other for about 12 years. Curious has been married twice before and her partner has never been married. In the early years of their relationship she didn’t want to get married again because of her experience in her two earlier marriages.

At this point The Council emphasizes that Curious has made clear by her actions and her words that she doesn’t want to get married, and her partner has taken this point in.

Curious goes on to say that about 3 years ago her feelings about marriage changed and she told her partner in what she considered a no pressure way that even though she wasn’t interested in marriage before, she was interested now.

The Council says because Curious changed her mind about getting married and she let her partner know, she expected her partner to accept this new idea before he was ready. The Council says what Curious is hopefully learning from this experience is to allow her partner (and everyone else) to be who they are. The Council adds that while it’s wonderful that Curious is aware of this change in her thinking and is able to express her desires to her partner, part of her lesson is to allow her boyfriend to have a different opinion at this time and accept that maybe he doesn’t want to move forward as fast as she does.

The Council says there’s nothing in the way of an eventual marriage, and asks what Curious has done in her visualizations to create this change she seeks? Is she working on seeing the marriage happening? Is Curious putting happy feelings into the thought that the marriage will occur at some point, rather than focusing on why her partner hasn’t changed his mind yet? The inner work to create this marriage is very important.

The Council feels Curious’s partner is comfortable with the relationship the way it is and he’s not ready to change the relationship at this time. Both souls have agreed in spirit to create this situation. For both of you this is a lesson in patience, understanding, and allowing. When these lessons have all been learned, there will be movement towards the marriage Curious desires.

Is Curious enjoying being with her partner, or is she stuck thinking when will this marriage happen? Enjoy every part of the relationship like you did before you told your partner you wanted to get married. The more Curious is able to find things to be grateful for in the relationship and do the inner work of thinking how she wants the relationship to evolve, the easier it will be to create the marriage she desires.

Curious says a month ago someone introduced her partner as her husband and he commented, “No, just boyfriend,” and laughed. This hurt Curious’s feelings, but she didn’t say anything because she didn’t want to pressure her partner. The Council says Curious’s partner is speaking the truth and they ask why this hurts her feelings? They suggest it’s because the marriage isn’t happening at the exact time she wishes it to happen.

Curious asks if she and her partner are meant to take their relationship to the next level, and The Council says, “In time.” She asks if her partner is interested in marriage and The Council says, “Cautiously, yes.” If Curious falls into feelings of impatience and has negative feelings about the relationship, this can change the path of the relationship into something that causes problems she has to learn from before she can move forward.

The Council’s parting thoughts are for Curious to bring more love into the relationship with her partner and create happy experiences along the way. And they emphasize again the importance of her doing the inner work necessary to create this marriage.

Why Am I Still Single?

This post answers questions from a reader named, Melissa, who asks what’s the purpose for her being single and not having a relationship in this lifetime?

The Council asks Melissa when she thinks of a partner, does she think about how a partner is missing from her life? They say if her focus on the absence of what she desires, she’ll never bring a partner in.

There was a desire to learn a lot about independence while being alone. In another lifetime this wasn’t possible and you had a desire to come into this lifetime and be in charge and be strong.

When you get to a place of being independent and you’re loving this independence, it’s from this place of happiness that you can begin to think of what you want in a partner. Would you like to keep the independence you’ve achieved while in a relationship? What kind of relationship will you have? How would you maintain a sense of equality? How would you form a relationship where you both can grow?

In this lifetime you’re spirit wanted to be strong, capable, and independent because of your experience in your other lifetime. In order to accomplish this you took the time to be alone. But if you hang on to the feeling and the thought that you can’t attract a suitable partner, more of what you’re feeling and thinking will be created in your life.

You’re stalled without a relationship because you’re waiting for it to come along, but you’re not thinking enough about how you want this relationship to be. How can you keep your independence, stay strong, continue to grow, and take care of yourself? You need to focus on the type of partner that will match your desires and also worked hard to become who they are. Enjoy the freedom of who you are and now attract to yourself the partner who will enable you to go even further.

A partner has already been planned for you in spirit. You wanted to attract a partner when you were strong enough to call in the specific ingredients that will put this relationship together. Focus on the relationship specifics you desire instead of the lack of them and you’ll attract this relationship to you.  You’ve followed what you’ve planned. You’ve worked on yourself a lot. That’s exactly what you wanted to do. Now you’re in a place where you can begin to attract this partner.

The Council informs Melissa that it’s not her plan to remain single in her current lifetime. She’s worked out in spirit who will come along and how the relationship will progress.

Melissa closes by saying she’s discouraged by her situation and can’t understand the lesson she’s supposed to learn in what’s going on right now. She feels powerless.

The Council says Melissa has followed her spiritual plans perfectly. It takes a powerful person to go forward and become who they wanted to be, because when you’re on the Earth path you don’t remember what you planned in spirit. You’ve accomplished what you spiritually intended because spirit speaks to you and has brought you on your path. You’ve done the first part of what you wanted, and there’s no reason you can’t attract a suitable partner now.

Know that you have choices. You’re a powerful spirit and now you’re ready to attract the right partner. Be in the vibration of happiness and excitement and know that as you’ve specifically created what you wanted in your life so far, you can also create the partner and relationship you desire in your life. And The Council closes by saying if the work is done without doubt, the relationship won’t take too long for Melissa to draw it into her life.

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

Is There a Lesson in a Friendship with an Old Flame?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who says she confessed her love to a friend a few years ago, but the friend didn’t feel the same way and PE was heartbroken and embarrassed. PE and her friend became distant after this and she let go of her pain over the embarrassment.

Recently this old flame came back into PE’s life and he wants to reignite their friendship by PE spending time with him and his new girlfriend. But when PE spends time with this couple she ends up feeling sad and doesn’t know why. She let go of the feelings she had for this guy and she’s not interested in him romantically any more. PE asks The Council if there’s a purpose or a lesson for her from this situation?

The Council sees PE and the guy she liked planned in spirit before they were born, to be together in this lifetime, but it was also planned if they were unable to find a way to be together romantically, they would at least be friends and be in each other’s life.

If PE is sad when she’s with this guy and his new girlfriend, the best she can do at this point is wish them well, accept the situation, and then take these good wishes into herself so she’s able to find her own partner. As you can be happy for this couple, that happiness will come back to you. If you’re unable to be with this couple for a while, find a way to get comfortable with this, but know that on a soul level you and this guy planned to be in each other’s lives, even if not romantically.

It’s PE’s choice to take the relationship in whatever direction she wants. He found a way to bridge the distance that was created previously and ask for a friendship. He’s following that part of their soul agreement, even if he’s consciously not aware of it. Now it’s up to PE to see what direction she wants to take her life. The Council adds if PE isn’t able to be a friend with this man in this lifetime, they can promise her she’ll have other opportunities in other lifetimes until they work out the relationship.

The Council says when you’re able to change how you see your situation and realize there’s another option that you both chose in spirit, perhaps you’ll feel differently. PE can feel good about telling her friend she loved him because she was following the original agreement. But because you and your friend have free will, it doesn’t always mean what you planned in spirit will come together easily. So you planned another way, which was to remain in each other’s lives, but as friends. Can you get to the place where you’re able to be friends with this man? If not, why?

As difficult as it may be, wish this guy and his new girlfriend well. Send them love. If you don’t feel it, fake it until you can make it happen. When you can truly feel happiness for them, your life will change. The feelings you have will affect your life, not theirs. Work toward feelings of forgiveness for him, for yourself, and for plans that didn’t work out. And know that you made a back-up plan which you still have a chance to follow. And if you’re unable to follow your back-up plan, you’ll be able to do it again in another lifetime.

Listen to the entire 9-minute audio recording of our session with The Council to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us, and let us know what you feel about it.

Will the Soul I Aborted Return in a Future Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by a question from an Anonymous reader who asks The Council if the soul she recently aborted will return to her in a future pregnancy. She says this abortion wasn’t an easy decision for her and her husband and she’s been missing the baby and feeling like a guilty, bad mother. She says oddly she didn’t feel connected to the baby while she was pregnant. Only after the abortion did she feel connected to this soul.

The Council says she wanted to experience how she’d feel when someone she loved passes on and she created this in a way where she was pregnant and aborted the child she felt no connection to. Now that the child is gone she feels the connection and has the opportunity to learn the lesson that love is forever. The connection she felt in her physical reality isn’t broken when one soul returns to spirit.

The Council says she pre-determined in spirit to be able to become pregnant again and it was agreed that this same soul she aborted would return in this future pregnancy. She was not a bad mother. She was creating a lesson for herself, and they ask her to remember that lesson when others she knows pass from this lifetime.

There is a sadness from not being connected in physical reality, but she can still feel them and talk to them in her mind and dreams. They say this connection was an important lesson for her to learn and to share with others.

The Council says the spirit of the baby that was aborted was part of this decision. It knew it would be aborted so the mother could learn the lesson about love transcending physical reality. But this soul would not go away and if Anonymous brings this soul back there will be many new lessons they will learn together. Anonymous did exactly what she pre-planned in spirit and has no reason to feel bad about terminating her pregnancy.

In their closing The Council asks us all to remember our promise as we all came into this physical reality to bring love into this reality, no matter what the reality is. Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.
