What Can You Tell Me About Loki Energy?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, LadyInLife, who says, Everything in my life is changing. I have a new relationship, I have a new job, my car suddenly died for good, and I’m moving into a new home. It feels a little chaotic and exciting, though there’s a lot of pressure for me to succeed.

The Council asks where this pressure is coming from? You will succeed, and you’ll go at your own speed with your own ability to take what you learn and put it to use. Any pressure to succeed should be totally ignored. You should look at your own doubt about yourself, or if you’ll succeed. Just think lightly of having fun along the way. You’re exactly where you need to be at this point.

LadyInLife says, A palm reader recently told me I’ve got a lot of Loki energy around me. Can you tell me more about Loki, his energy, and how I can best work with this energy and honor it? The Council says in mythology the Norse god, Loki, was known to be a great manipulator of energy and people. He was able to change shapes into whatever he wanted.

Learning about Loki is about learning to increase your energy. But when you learn about this, always have in your mind the correct and fair way to use this energy. Take this powerful energy that’s there for all of us and don’t use it for manipulation. Use it in ways that increase what you can do. Use this energy in ways that increases what can happen for other people and the support you show for these people. It’s a powerful energy, but in your reality’s comic books we see Loki is made out to be the bad or evil guy.

You don’t need to learn too much about Loki, but learn the correct use of energy. Loki grabs your attention, but then take your attention and look beneath it. Remove the person, Loki, from what you’re learning and see what’s there and how you’d use this energy. This will increase your ability to manifest and do things.

LadyInLife says, Interestingly the man I’m seeing is really into Loki and even has two tattoos dedicated to him. The Council says you both had a past life together as children. It was a fun life where you were very close and you played many games. You both came from wealthy families. You had the freedom to not work and had lots of time for play. You both used your imaginations and pretend stories to become other people. You could live on other planets. The imagination you both had together was very helpful and gave you a happy childhood.

In your current lifetime you both created a common interest in Loki to bring you together. But we say again, go beyond the person of Loki and learn about astral travel, changing shapes, and using energy to help people rather than manipulate them. Go forward and learn more about this.

LadyInLife says, I’m also wondering if you can tell me about any past life connections I have with this man I’ve been seeing, and tell me about how Loki is involved with us. The Council says this is coming from your imaginations in the past life we mentioned. Before you came into this lifetime you created this life where you’d learn of something beyond this time and could experience it and learn about it together. You wanted to live with the principles you find in the subject of Loki that the two of you created.

LadyInLife says, This relationship is fairly new, but it feels like it has long-lasting potential and hopefully it will remain a harmonious and beautiful thing. The Council says your relationship was created to be a long-lasting one. You created it to take you both on an interesting journey in this lifetime. Going forward, enjoy every step of the way, see what you learn, and how you can both grow from this.

The Council wishes everyone fun on your path, happiness along the way, challenges you can overcome, and to create the manifestations you want. You can begin to learn it’s easier and easier to direct your life. Stay in joy, stay in love, and follow your path.

What Is My Life Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named LDavis1978, who says, I’m on a journey of self-awareness and manifestation. I know I want a lifestyle based on freedom and being with family and the ones I love. I know I want to be my own boss, spend my time how I wish, and do something I love. However, I’m stuck on my life purpose. How can I best serve and add value to humanity? Obviously I still need money, which I know is energy. Can The Council help me with my purpose in life?

The Council says your purpose and everyone else’s is to come into this reality and have fun, to bring love in, to have challenges and turn them around, to not take yourself too seriously, and most of all to learn there’s so much more in this reality than you’re aware of.

We see you planned to have the freedom to move around and to work for yourself. You say you’ve taken many courses, and this is a good thing. When you planned this reality you wanted to find something you really liked and then become a coach in this. You wanted to find a way to help people.

At first you thought you wanted to help people physically, but then you changed it because you knew the direction this reality was going and what everyone would face. You decided you wanted to help people develop their minds. You wanted to find out how to work with your own mind first, to manifest with it, be positive, connect with other people, and work with energy. You were very interested in bringing this in and coaching people on how to do this.

In your current reality have fun, but look at your life. Take many classes until you find something that works with the mind that you’re really interested in. And then, after you are well into this subject, come up with things you’ve changed in your own life and how you’ve gone about this. Perhaps you can teach people in small groups, or perhaps just starting with your family or a few friends, to look at things differently. Anything you choose to learn in this lifetime that has to do with expanding the mind and showing people how to do this was your goal in this reality.

You can turn this coaching into a way to make a living. At first you’d do whatever job you have at the moment, but while you were doing this, take your free time to learn more and more about the mind. That was your purpose for coming into this lifetime. You wanted to do this very lightly with a lot of fun and in ways that are easy to understand. When you learn something and it is difficult for you to understand, think of another way you could teach people how to understand this. Come up with your own ways that are more simplistic that can reach more people. This would give you the freedom and the time you desire.

LDavis asks, What are the skills I can use to serve and create a lifestyle for myself and my family based on freedom? The Council says your biggest skill is you know how to learn and you know how to listen and turn things around in your mind. The whole purpose of this particular lifetime is for you to learn to use your mind and pass this learning on to others.

LDavis says, I struggle to think of any skills I have or what brings me joy. The Council says being friendly, being a good listener, bringing fun into whatever you learn, having interesting questions that you can ask people, having a collection of interesting stories of what’s happened to you so far in this life, and sharing these things with others. You were a great storyteller in the Indian culture many lifetimes ago. You can tell stories. And the way you tell them will bring about the information that’s needed for people to have in this lifetime.

LDavis says, I’ve joined programs where I meditate, journal, do inner work, set goals, and visualize. The Council says this is wonderful and asks how you’d teach these things? How would you put your own creation into teaching these things and making them easier and more fun?

LDavis says, I can see the end result. I understand my why, which is my family, but I need guidance on my dharma, my purpose and the steps to take me there. The Council says you’ve already taken many steps with the journaling, with the meditation, reaching out, and learning different things. Do you see you already intuitively were putting yourself on the path of working with your mind? With your mind you’ve increased the ability to write, to journal, to put your understanding or questions into it. You use your mind to meditate, and then let go. You’re already doing what you planned.

Going forward just remember, anything that would reach people and teach them how to increase their ability with their minds, and know this is where we manifest with our thoughts and our visualizations, will give you a whole new career.

The Council wishes everyone fun on their path, happiness along the way, challenges you can overcome, creation of the manifestations you desire, and you can begin to learn it’s easier and easier to direct your life. Stay in joy, stay in love, and follow your path.

What is the Buffer of Time Regarding Manifestation?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Juan, who asks The Council for an explanation of the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting. For those of you unfamiliar with these two topics, manifesting as it’s used here is the creation of something wanted or unwanted  in your life by focusing your attention on it. And the buffer of time refers to how long it takes to create in your physical reality what you are focusing on.

The Council says there isn’t any set buffer of time. They say you will create in your life according to your beliefs, your seeing what you are thinking about, feeling it, and knowing it’s yours to have.

The Council asks how strong is your thought of what you’d like to manifest. Do you constantly focus on it or do you focus on it, but then forget it for a day or two, which makes the buffer of time last longer. Do you focus on something and then doubt whether it will come to you because it’s not coming quickly enough?

The Council says just by having the desire for something, it is yours in a non-physical reality. If you can stay in the feeling and vibration of what you focus your attention on, and not doubt you can have it and without giving up, it would manifest almost immediately, but they say most people are unable to do this.

The Council says the buffer of time as it relates to manifesting what you are focused on, is entirely up to you.

Listen to this brief, but thought provoking 2-minute session we had with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Juan and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Why Didn’t My Negative Thinking Effect My Child’s Pregnancy?

This post is inspired by an interesting question from a reader named Lynn, who says that several times a day she had compulsive thoughts about her unborn child dying during her last pregnancy. And as happy as she is that her daughter was born healthy, she wonders why this negative thinking didn’t have an adverse effect on her pregnancy, if thoughts have the power to physically manifest and create.

The Council says they see Lynn had a great concern for her health in other lifetimes, particularly one in London that was filled with disease and poverty, and she brought this fear for her child into this lifetime to turn it around.

Lynn’s higher self wanted to create the experience of having fearful thoughts during her pregnancy so she could live it differently than she did in her lifetime in London. And The Council says Lynn created these compulsive thoughts so she could learn how to experience them and not manifest them.

Lynn’s spirit pre-planned for her to experience these compulsive thoughts, but they didn’t happen in her physical reality because her higher self, which is always trying to steer you in the right direction, provided a vibration of love, understanding, and healing that prevented the compulsive thoughts from manifesting.

Lynn pre-birth planned to have these compulsive thoughts and then wonder why they didn’t manifest. The Council says it was to release old memories from the past, which is what she’s able to do now. They say this situation was created in the vibration of mass healing from another lifetime, which is why it was created.

The Council says perhaps the next time Lynn has fearful or compulsive thoughts, she’ll acknowledge them and release the fear by understanding she created it, and she can let go of it knowing it doesn’t need to happen, like her thoughts about her daughter’s pregnancy.

Everyone in this reality has picked challenges and lessons they want to go through. What The Council likes about Lynn’s comment is that it can help people realize when they have fearful thoughts or situations, it will help them face their fear and ask how they can bring love into it, and know they don’t have to go in the direction of the fear. Love yourself and the vibration that’s teaching you these lessons, and then think of the direction you’d like to go.

Lynn didn’t manifest her worst fears because it was a lesson from another lifetime and because it was pre-planned to bring her forward to this point so she can see that fear is just a vibration and doesn’t have to manifest. Your higher self, which isn’t separate from who you are, will always take you into the lesson you wish to have, and take you through the lesson with love.

No matter how often you feel fear, spirit is always trying to help you through it. And in Lynn’s case she experienced her spirit safely taking her through her fears. You don’t need to be afraid of fearful thoughts. You can have them, acknowledge them, and say: No, I’m a spirit in a physical body and I’m here to bring love into this situation, and let the fear go.

Listen to our entire 14-minute session with The Council (below) to answer Lynn’s question and receive it’s full benefit, and let us know what you think.

The Human-Spirit Relationship and Free Will

Overview

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Jose, who has read in some of our blog posts (links at the end of this post) that humans are spiritual beings in a physical body, and that spirit sometimes chooses to have human experiences that we (as humans) find undesirable. Jose wants to know how it’s possible for humans to have free will to choose our human desires, if who we are as spirit is choosing human experiences that feel unwanted from our human point of view.

Lots of people have become interested in the spiritual teaching that you are the creator of what you experience, which has been around a while and has become more popular through the teachings of Abraham and other spiritual teachers. Jose’s question suggests he’s aware of lots of things in his human experience he doesn’t want, and after reading in our posts that who you are as spirit sometimes creates human experiences that feel unwanted from your human point of view, he came to the troubling conclusion that spirit is preventing him from having more of the human experiences he desires.

Topics Covered in this Post

Even if you don’t believe spirit is keeping you from manifesting more of what you desire in your life, and you’re not particularly interested in the subject of free will, if you’re interested in ideas to help you feel an increased level of well-being in your human experience, we’re finding the information and guidance from The Council in response to Jose’s question has been a big step for us in that direction. Topics covered in our sessions on Jose’s question and in this post include:

  1. The relationship between who you are as a spiritual being and who you are as a human being.
  2. Why the spiritual part of you might desire to have human experiences in a physical reality.
  3. Why the spiritual part of you might desire to have human experiences that feel undesirable to you as a human being.
  4. The validity of your human free will to choose your human desires, even if who you are as spirit is choosing to have different human experiences.
  5. Why you may be having difficulty manifesting your human desires in your physical experience.

Nothing Going On That Spirit Hasn’t Planned For

The Council began our first session on Jose’s questions by emphasizing there isn’t any separation between spirit and human.

“The spirit works through the body it [spirit] has created.

“So there is nothing that is going on that the body wants, that the spirit hasn’t planned for.

“Is that understood? It is all one – the mind, the body, and the spirit – it is all one.”

–The Council

Feeling Your Way to Manifesting What You Desire

The following is a message The Council delivered to a small group on July 19, 2011 prior to taking questions from participants. Before the session with The Council the group had been discussing the subject of manifesting desires. Headings have been added for emphasis.

“And so we notice tonight the topic was all of the desires that each of us have. And we would just like to tell you that before you came into this physical reality, you knew you had the ability to create anything you desired. If you have the desire, it’s there for you.

Feel Your Way There

“What we always wish to let you know is that you are so much more than a physical body. You are spirit on this journey in a physical world. You are very powerful, and the way to create, to manifest your desires, is to feel your way there.

“It is wonderful to see it, to imagine it, but what brings it in is that feeling. Every part of your body, every cell in your body understands, and as you have those desires and feel your way there, the universe will line up all the opportunities to help you create whatever it is that you want – and we do say – whatever it is that you want.

The Secret to Manifesting What You Desire

Background

Recently The Council suggested to Cynthia that we write a post to help people who are feeling frustrated in their attempts to use the teachings of the law of attraction and deliberate creation to manifest what they desire in their lives. As two people who have experienced these frustrations, we liked The Council’s idea and during a session on Saturday, May 5, 2012 we asked for their suggestions for this post.

Highlights

In this section we’ve gathered The Council’s comments from throughout the session that represent for us the essence of their guidance for manifesting what you desire. In the sections that follow, these comments are presented in the context of the entire discussion, to give you a better idea how these ideas developed during the session.

“We see that many [who] are incarnated in your physical world have many questions about manifestation.”

“We see that many are trying to create specific things – whether it is relationships, whether it is material abundance, whether it is health – [and] that there is trouble in creating it.”

“Many do not know what it means when they hear the phrase, ‘line up with what it is you are trying to create.’ And many are out there teaching ‘to match the vibration of what you are trying to create’. Many do not know how to do this because if you’re trying to create something you’ve never had, or never lived, there is a doubt [about] what it would feel like [and] what it would be like to have this thing or situation.

“So how do you create with your thoughts when you do not have the experience of having whatever it is that you are calling forth? And we believe what many are missing… the secret is: you do not have to line up with that particular thought; you do not have to imagine – even though it is wonderful to imagine – what it is that you want, [and] that you already have it.”

“So if you cannot line up with the vibration of what it is that you want because you have no idea what it would look like in your imagination, or what it would feel like, the answer to this – and this is the answer to manifesting – [is] raise your vibration with happy thoughts, that is the answer.

“When you raise your vibration, everything that you have desired – whether you know how to create it or not –will come to you.”

“It is so simple that many will have a hard time believing this, but we can tell you it’s what you might call the shortcut or the easier way to manifesting. It doesn’t have to be so difficult as seeing that you have it, feeling that you have it, [and] what would it be like? Some cannot do this.

“And so just be happy about anything; stay in the feeling of happiness and spirit will bring in everything that it wants.”

–The Council
(The formatting above throughout this post represents The Council’s comments during our session. Text [in brackets] in these quotations has been added to improve readability and clarity when this seems useful.)

The Rest of the Story

If you agree with The Council that their advice may seem overly simplistic and difficult to believe, I [Bob] had the same feelings during the session (as the following details of our discussion indicate) and for at least the next 10 days. But after listening to the recording of the session every day, meditating on it, and giving The Council’s advice a try, I’m beginning to see evidence there’s something to what they’re saying, and we’re both looking forward to seeing what manifests as we practice reaching for happier thoughts and feelings.

Most of our discussion with The Council during this session is presented in the following sections. Headings have been added to organize the material in logical and manageable blocks of thought.

August 1, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feeling Your Desire

To raise your vibration
We ask you to have a thought,
Something that makes you happy.
See it in your future.

And if you can’t do that
We ask you to go back to a memory from your past:
Something that made you laugh;
Something that brought you joy.

As you stay in that memory
Your vibration increases.

The frequency of this vibration becomes faster,
And as you are in this state of joy
We then ask you to go into the thought,
Into the imagination of picturing what you want,
But then feel it.

After you have gotten to a state of happiness,
Then begin to feel what your desire is like.
What would it feel like to have it?

And that is what will help you manifest.

—The Council

July 31, 2011 Thought for the Day

Your Vibration

As you feel these desires
Your vibration changes.

And it is this vibration
That will bring back to you
What it is you are trying to manifest.

And many people do not know
How to line up with that feeling;
The feeling of happiness,
The feeling of joy.

That’s what will help you create.

July 27, 2011 Thought for the Day

Feel Your Way

You are very powerful,
And the way to create,
To manifest your desires,
Is to feel your way there.

It is wonderful to see it,
To imagine it,
But what brings it in
Is that feeling.

Every part of your body,
Every cell in your body understands.

And as you have those desires
And feel your way there,
The universe will line up all the opportunities
To help you create
Whatever it is that you want.

And we do say
Whatever
it is
That you want.

You are here on the physical plane to create.

It is not important what material things you create.

It is not important what opportunities you create.

What is important is seeing your creations manifested in your physical experience.

That will connect you with who you really are.

In every area of your life

You will only experience what is not resisted.

Focus on the possibilities for only a moment,

Allowing manifestation to occur.

Law of Attraction for Skeptics – Consider the Possibility

During a recent session with The Council they seemed concerned many people question the validity of the law of attraction and don’t understand how to use it to their advantage. The information in this post is intended to help you experience the validity of the law of attraction even of you’re skeptical that it exists. It’s also intended to show you how the law of attraction can improve your life even if you don’t think it can.

Law of Attraction Makes it to Primetime

After the widely popular release of The Secret, a 2006 film and a 2007 book about the law of attraction that received a lot of attention in the media, and some bestselling books on this subject by Esther and Jerry Hicks, the law of attraction seems to have found a place in popular culture. Amazon.com recently listed over 1,000 books on the subject, including The Complete Idiot’s Guide to The Law of Attraction. But The Council says there’s a lot of misunderstanding about the law of attraction (LOA).
