What will you ask Spirit?

Can I Manifest If I Have a Mental Illness That Prevents Me From Feeling Joy?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Marylander, who asks: How does manifesting work if you have a mental illness that prevents you from feeling joy or staying in a good state?

The Council asks if Marylander is never in a vibration of joy? Do you never feel a moment of peace, or love, or happiness, or something that interests you and takes your mind away from sadness? Look for these moments and hang onto them as long as you can.

You can manifest when you’re sad or depressed, but it takes a longer time. If you can’t feel the joy you need to feel to manifest what you want into your reality, then try believing it’s somewhere within you. Look for pictures that represent something you’d like. Make a scrapbook. Look at these pictures every day and imagine how nice it would be to manifest what these pictures represent. This will make your energy a little lighter. You can do this.

Marylander says as a depressed person their emotions are mostly negative. They don’t feel they can control this and medicine makes things worse. The Council recommends becoming very aware of what you feel and then see what you’re thinking to bring this feeling in. Identify your thoughts and the feelings that come from these thoughts. It’s not always easy to come out of feeling down. What’s the opposite of what you’re thinking? What would you like? Make it up. Pretend.

When you want to change something in your life, be aware of what it is. Be aware of how you feel and how you’d like it to be. If you can get a picture in your mind of what you desire, that picture goes out into the universe and tells the universe what you desire. Even when you’re down you can look at a picture and perhaps it will change how you feel a little bit.

The Council says that because you feel you can’t create, they’re here to tell you you can still create. There will be moments of joy. There will be pictures to look at and wonder what it would be like to live like the pictures. This is the way you begin to manifest.

Marylander says there were two people they wanted to be with and they feel guilty they didn’t attract them as a partner. And they wonder if they were able to be more positive, would they have manifested these relationships?

The Council says if the relationship didn’t happen, what kind of feelings did it leave you with? Were you able to get past the “nobody loves me” phase and get to, “this is something I wanted. It didn’t work out. We must have created the possibility before we came into this lifetime. Let me look again and see what else is coming into my reality.” In other words, by focusing on aspects of the relationship that worked, they don’t have to attract the same person, but someone with the qualities you desire.

Marylander says they don’t feel capable of having someone be with them and The Council says this is the main problem. You have to change your thoughts. You are capable of having someone you desire be with you. You have to think of bringing in the right person for you with the qualities you want. And The Council asks what Marylander is bringing to the relationship? When you begin to think of “us” (you and someone else), the energy changes to help you create the someone else.

Be excited about the possibility of these relationships, but if they didn’t work out it was agreed upon in spirit. Your belief system for this lifetime was to become a stronger person, was to let go of doubts, and always know you can create something better than what you’ve experienced. And The Council adds this guidance is for everyone.

Marylander says they’re abandoned and alone. And The Council says how about thinking you’re in a state of creating the perfect partner for yourself. What would I like in this new person? And they suggest Marylander forget the idea of being abandoned and alone.

Marylander asks if it’s pointless to pray when they’re feeling abandoned and alone. The Council says it’s good to pray if you pray with positive thoughts. Examples include: Dear God, please help me. I know you will. I just need to be a little patient. Dear angels, bring the right person to me. I know you’re already doing it, I have to be ready to receive it.

The Council closes by saying the only thing that’s preventing Marylander from manifesting is themself and how they focus their thoughts. The point of being depressed is to learn how to bring love into the depression and to turn it around. And The Council adds to be patient with yourself.

How to Navigate Through a Period of Standstill

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Sarah who feels like after being drawn to experiences like lucid dreaming, meditation, and connection with her spiritual self, her life has come to a standstill recently and she asks The Council how to navigate through this period of feeling stuck.

The Council says what Sarah is experiencing is what some people call the void. She will feel stuck and cut off, but while she’s in what she calls this stuck place she should review what she’s learned, go deeper into it, and use it in her everyday life.

While Sarah is in this stuck place her spirit is very busy planning the next phase of her life. She is figuring out on a deeper level her path and the direction she wants to go, who she wants to pull into her life, where she wants to live, and what she wants to experience. The Council says Sarah is in a very good place and recommends she have more understanding with people she brings into her life.

Sarah asks how she can connect more deeply with herself and manifest more quickly. And The Council recommends sitting in a quiet place and figuring out how she can know her spirit loves her personality self, but without using any words, just feeling this love in her heart. This will eventually help her feel more connected.

Sarah asks what lessons she’s here to learn. And The Council says her lessons now are to be independent, be loving to herself, and push forward on her path of spiritual growth. And they say on this path she will bring in the right people to help her along her way. Do not look for approval from others. Approve of yourself and you will see yourself move forward.

Sarah asks what she’s struggled with in past lives. And The Council says the past life that’s affecting this life is one of slavery where she suffered without having the freedom to go and choose what she wanted, and feeling very oppressed. In her current lifetime she wants to spread her wings, learn more, be independent, and not need approval from others.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) on Sarah’s questions to gain a deeper appreciate for The Council’s guidance for Sarah and the rest of us when we feel stuck in the void.

Connecting with Your Higher Self to Manifest the Realities You Desire

This post is inspired by a question from Irina, and her question was inspired by our following thought for the day post:

“It is the spirit’s job to create the perfect life you want to live and to provide you with all the challenges and joy you want to experience. Spirit knows exactly what you want.”

–The Council

Irina comments that she’s pretty good at manifesting, but it’s much easier for her to help other people manifest what they want than it is for her to know what she wants and set an intention to manifest it in her own life. Irina wants to know how she can connect with her higher self and get the information The Council says her spirit knows about what she wants.
