Is Soul Fragmentation Real?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, who asks about what they call soul fragmentation, which they describe as the soul breaking apart from the body during a traumatic event and remaining in that event while the body moves forward. ImportantOrNotBlog asks if soul fragmentation is real or something someone made up?

The Council says the soul will never break apart but if the body is traumatized, the soul will leave the body even though the soul continues to remain attached to the body. The soul watches the body day by day while floating nearby.

If a child is abused the soul can jump out. If there’s a lot of pain or sickness in the body, the soul will jump out so it can watch the body and help it figure out how to move through whatever is going on.

When the soul leaves the body, the person can go into a deep depression or not know what direction to go. The person may not understand what’s going on and feels quite empty and not themselves.

The soul can never leave you and go off somewhere. It will just come out of the body and watch what’s going on. There is always a connection between the soul and the body.

Bob asks The Council how to reintegrate the soul with the body. The Council says if the soul has left the body because of grief, sometimes as the person works through the grief they’ll allow the soul to come back into the body. If there’s abuse of some kind and the soul jumps out and watches this, if the abuser leaves the environment, the soul can come back and work through the abuse because there’s now a feeling of safety. The soul knows the lessons chosen by spirit, but if the mind is temporarily unable to handle an experience, there’s a brief period of time where you will experience what you’re calling soul fragmentation.

Some people like shamen who interact with the spirit world will say they’ll get your soul for you. Some people may need this ritual, but The Council says the only person who can reunite your soul with your body is you. The soul will come when you feel safe and when your mind begins to focus again and work out a way through the trauma it’s experienced. Meditation and prayer will always help with this reintegration. The soul can return as you call the light around and inside your body as a way of protecting yourself and filling you up with the feeling of spirit.

The Council says there are times when the soul will come back into the body and you’ll experience another traumatic episode. If your mind is unable to understand this trauma or deal with it, the soul will jump out again. If you’re in a place where your lessons are too much for you to handle at a particular time even though you’ve created these lessons, your soul knows what you want to learn and will leave your body, watch you develop, send you support, light, and love, and in this process your soul can come in and out of your body.

How long the soul remains out of the body is up to the soul, which knows what the person is trying to accomplish. The soul will continue to help while it floats near the body by sending energy so the mind begins to focus on the light. If this doesn’t happen, you can always go through this lesson in another lifetime. If you knew the way you planned your life was too much in a previous life, you can plan it a different way, but the lessons will always be there.

ImportantOrNotBlog asks if a professional is required to reunite the soul with the body and The Council repeats it’s not required. What’s required, even in what feels like this lost period, is to hold on to a higher vibration or focus on the light, and you can come together with the soul. At this point, if it’s understood and wanted, you can change some of your difficult lessons.

Do I Have a Connection to the Pleiades Constellation?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Marie, who asks if she has a connection to the Pleiades, which is a constellation in the night sky. Marie says she always felt an intuitive familiarity as she began learning about Pleiadian’s connection to humans.

The Council says Marie has been in contact with Pleiadians. In her current lifetime she planned to be part of their research and teaching about working from the heart and how to raise your energy.

Many Pleiadians have come to Earth and are very concerned about the evolution of people here. They’re here to try and teach more understanding about working with heart energy as opposed to the energy of the mind. They want to help us move forward and not experience the challenges they faced as they evolved.

Pleiadians come from the star cluster that’s closest to the Earth. Sometimes significant numbers of them visit Earth. Marie has agreed to work emotionally with Pleiadians, have them visit her in dreams, and work on her development. Any sort of meditation or practice that will raise Marie’s energy is needed right now.

When Marie was young there was a woman in her neighborhood who was from Pleiades and she watched Marie’s development. When Marie finishes this lifetime she’ll be going back to Pleiades to discuss her lifetime on Earth, how she helped others around her come to a more loving vibration, and make decisions from a place of joy in her heart.

The Council feels Marie will have additional contact with beings from Pleiades. Someone will briefly come along and correct her thoughts, or agree with her if she’s on the right path, or show her another perspective. Marie should be aware of this. The Pleiadians won’t announce who they are, but they’ll be around. The Council advises Marie to enjoy the next part of her life. She’ll learn a lot. The fact that Marie had the thought that she’s connected to Pleiades is part of her remembering.

Pleiadians can assume a human body while here on Earth, but they don’t live a full human lifetime. They come to fulfill a particular task and then they return to Pleiades.

The basic purpose of Pleiadians on Earth is to bring peace. They are aware of our problems and are concerned about peace for our planet. The Council asks all of us to ask for peace in our meditations and prayers, to look within ourselves and see how we behave. Is it always in a peaceful manner?

On a slightly different subject Marie says she’s learned recently that the Rh negative blood type represents approximately 15% of the human population on Earth and might indicate extraterrestrial DNA. She asks if there’s any truth to this.

At first The Council doesn’t answer Marie’s question directly. Instead they discuss the difficulties extraterrestrials with high energy have being in a human body. Many extraterrestrials that come to Earth have blood differences, lower back problems, sinus problems, and problems with their tailbone. And other extraterrestrials come and have no differences.

When Bob pressed The Council on the question of Rh negative blood types and extraterrestrials they said it’s not always an indication of an extraterrestrial. Some extraterrestrials have this blood type, but not everyone who has it is an extraterrestrial.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Marie and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it. If you like this post, please consider clicking on the Like button in the “Tell others about this post” section beneath the recording.

How Can I Develop My Psychic Sense?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, LearningSoulSite, who says she was advised in an earlier session with The Council that her soul would like her to develop psychic abilities and she’s not sure what will be a good starting point. She asks how she’ll understand her psychic gifts and how she should develop them. And finally she asks if there’s anything she should be careful about or protect herself from while working on her psychic sense.

The Council starts by saying that before LearningSoulSite begins developing her psychic ability she should protect herself from her own thoughts and beliefs. Because if you believe there’s something out there that’ll grab you when you meditate and you’re not protected, somehow you’ll create this. And if you believe there’s evil lurking about that you need to be protected from, you’ll create this.

The Council advises LearningSoulSite to work on who she truly is, which is love and light. That is what everything is made of. Within this realm of love, light, and pure energy she can begin to allow herself to connect with the spirit world, and with past lives and future lives. It’s important to know she’s in control of everything that happens and her beliefs will play a part in this.

The Council suggests meditation is the best way to start developing your psychic abilities, even if you sit quietly for 5-10 minutes a day.

But if you want to connect with spirit, a simple way to do this is by concentrating on beauty. When you eat, imagine what you’re eating is filled with love and light and ask yourself how it feels going into your body. When you’re around animals, look for their souls. When you’re in the garden, look with beauty and love at the flowers and connect with the belief you’re one with these flowers.

As you begin to connect with everything you’ve created in your reality, you now begin to open chakras you’ve never worked with before. Know there’s so much more within you and around you. As you accept this belief and it becomes true to you, you’ll automatically open to different energies and different visions. You’ll hear things you can’t hear right now.

Most of this lifetime there’s been a lot of confusion. So when you meditate, concentrate on the third eye center to receive the clarity you’re looking to experience. With this clarity you’ll find it’ll become easier to make decisions. You’ll have a better understanding of the people around you. This is what you wanted to accomplish in your current lifetime. And when you receive this clarity and understanding, you’ll find people will begin speaking to you about what’s going on in their lives, and you’ll know how to help these people.

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

What if My Interest in Spirit as a Distraction from “Reality”

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Malia, who says her navel chakra feels weak, my will feels blocked, and I’m overly enmeshed with my family.

The Council says the reason for Malia’s blocked third or navel chakra is in many prior lives she had to do what she was told in her families. She had no say in what direction her life went. In her current lifetime it’s Malia’s intention to heal this situation. She wants to feel independent and make her own decisions.

The Council says Malia has created a situation where she’s enmeshed with her family and now she needs to figure out what’s going on in her day to day life rather than focusing so much on her navel chakra. Is there a way she’s able to handle her circumstances differently? Is she able to make protective boundaries so she doesn’t feel herself getting pulled into everyone’s world? The Council says the reason Malia’s having this experience right now is so she can learn from it and change it.

The Council says the reason Malia’s enmeshed with her family is her day to day choices. Her greatest power in the current lifetime she’s creating is her minute to minute decisions. Why does she allow herself to be pulled in to her family’s drama? Why does she create these experiences? By looking at her circumstances she’ll be able to find new ways to deal with them. She’s created these situations to learn independence, to speak for herself, make decisions, and make boundaries. Boundaries is a big lesson for her in this lifetime.

Malia says she feels insecure about her capacity to be independent. The Council says she has the capacity, the power, and the strength to be independent. That is what she’s chosen to learn in this lifetime. She’s created situations where she does’t feel independent so she can learn to overcome them.

Malia says she’s afraid she’s using her interest in spirit as a scapegoat rather than working on the reality she’s manifesting. The Council says spirit isn’t Malia’s scapegoat. As she meditates or intuitively pays attention to feelings and ideas that come to her, that is her higher self helping handle her challenges. This isn’t using spirit as a scapegoat. This is learning from her higher self.

Bob suggests Malia may mean she’s using her interest in spirit to keep from focusing on day to day choices The Council asked her to focus on. The Council says when you realize who you truly are as a spirit in a physical body, that is the most important thing. Your day to day choices becomes clearer when you understand this.

Bob asks The Council if they can think of a reason why Malia might be having this fear of working on her reality and having spirit as a scapegoat? The Council says the desire to stand up to people, be independent, face confrontation, and learn to say no are with Malia from other lifetimes. Rather than face these situations on a day to day basis she can believe that concentrating on spirit doesn’t allow her to change the experiences she’s having.

Intuitively Malia knows she has to face these challenges because this is what she’s created them for. The part of her that’s afraid to face these challenges will concentrate on what she thinks of as spirit and takes her away from what she has to do to have a different experience.

The Council recommends daily meditation, even if it’s only five minutes, and coming up with affirmations that remind her who she truly is as a spirit in a physical body. Read about spirit and the reason we’re here on Earth. As she feels more in tune with who she is, she’ll be able to handle her day to day experiences. Family and other relationships will become clearer.

Listen to our entire 11-minute audio session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Malia and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Son’s Anger Issues Related to Lifetime in Ancient Rome

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Lavender, who has an 8 year old boy with anger issues and she wonders why. The Council says this boy is hurting very deeply inside and at this point he doesn’t know how to feel love. He has a lot of mistrust and believes he must be alone.

The Council says your son is deeply affected by a lifetime in ancient Rome and he’s got a lot to heal from this lifetime. He was a slave who was taken to the arena where gladiators fought and was picked to be in charge of other slaves. This gave him safety, but turned the slaves he was friendly with against him.

He carries a lot of guilt from this Roman lifetime that he’s going to try and work out in his current lifetime. Your son has an authority problem in his current lifetime related to the lifetime in Rome, he has difficulty following orders, and he doesn’t like being told what to do.

The way you ask your son to do things will either create anger or give him understanding. Explain why, when you ask him to do the littlest thing and thank him for being a helpful part of your family. He needs to know he’s included and not alone. In his current lifetime he wants to know he can survive by being himself and being part of a family.

Lavender feels guilty for having this son when she was young and The Council says there is no use for this guilt. She needs to take part in helping her son heal the issues he’s brought into this lifetime.

Lavender asks The Council for advice on how to guide her son and The Council says their pre-birth agreement was that she would give him confidence and accept him no matter how he behaves in the moment. He needs an explanation how some of his behavior upsets her and why. And follow these explanations with reminders of the good he does.

Lavender says she recognizes in her son the same internal struggles she went through growing up. She is also resistant to authority figures. The Council suggests she explain to her son that she also doesn’t like to be told what to do. Maybe you can work on this together and bond over it. With understanding his mind will open, acceptance of how different things can be will begin to flood in, and clarity will come.

Lavender says she’s tried to teach her son things like the law of attraction, self empowerment, chakras, and meditation, and she says from this he became an elaborate storyteller. The Council says children have a great ability to astral project, remember their dreams, and travel to different dimensions. In your son’s case these stories aren’t made up. He is very psychic and intuitive and these are important tools for him as he grows.

The Council says many times your son is able to see from his third eye and he imagines other people can also do this. Encourage your son to talk to you about what he’s seeing and you’ll be surprised how he changes.

Treat your son with kindness, understanding, and love. Explain everything that’s asked of him. Explain when things annoy you and how you think about it and change it. Let him know how you want to teach him why he and everyone else is  here: to handle whatever challenges he faces, to acknowledge them, to work on them, and to turn them around with love.

Listen to our entire 18-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Lavender and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Help With Depression

This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks The Council for guidance on overcoming depression. They have been using meditation, guided journals, therapy, and medication for years, but just can’t shake this condition. Typically they’re okay when they’re busy, but at other times like now, the situation is unbearably difficult.

The Council suggests when you start feeling depressed you should pay attention to your thoughts. Your thoughts will either lead you into depression or help you come out of it. In your case it’s good to keep as busy as possible. If you’re not working to keep busy, try taking classes, reading, and meditation.

When you meditate, ask to feel your heart energy. This will lift your spirits.

When you don’t feel as good as you’d like, acknowledge this feeling. Then take control by changing your thoughts to better feeling ones. Find something you like about yourself or something you’ve accomplished. Go into old memories that feel good. As you change these heavier thoughts you can begin to change the thoughts that bring on the depression. This will take work on your part, but you’re able to do it.

If you feel some relief from medication, this belief that medication is helping will assist you. You can use medication for a while to lift your energy and still begin to change your thoughts to better feeling ones. This medication would be until you feel better. Once you acknowledge these better feelings you’ll remember them. When you get depressed and change your thoughts and reach for these better feelings, this is how you’ll work your way out of depression.

Anonymous says they understand their negative emotions are creating the depression, but they have difficulty staying positive. The Council says in the beginning you’ll be able to change your thoughts only occasionally, and as you’re able to do this the thoughts will grow and you’ll not have to consistently feel depressed. You are retraining yourself how to focus your attention, and this focus is what you’ll create in your life.

Anonymous asks how they’re able to experience all the good things they’ve created for themselves? The Council says by naming them and being grateful for each one. As you find things to be grateful for, everything begins to change for the better.

The Council’s parting words are to look within yourself for your inner light and meditate on your heart. Picture a little light growing there. This is part of who you are. You are more than your physical body. You are also a wondrous spirit that is light and love. As you look within for this light, you will find it.

Listen to our entire 5-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

How Can I Describe Kundalini Energy to Family & Friends

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Mariner2Mother, who’s experiencing a Kundalini awakening and would like help explaining the process to family and friends who don’t understand it.

The Council says Kundalini is a raising of energy in each chakra (or energy center in the body). It sits in the first chakra (or root chakra in the groin area) and through meditation, prayer, reading, and sometimes through no conscious effort on the part of the practitioner, slowly rises through each of the seven chakras along the spine.

Inside each chakra there are seven more chakras that correspond to the seven chakras in the body. The Council describes it as an awakening. It can take years for this energy to rise to the upper most chakra. This energy can heal fears, illness, and anything that keeps you from experiencing who you truly are. It helps you think differently and see things differently.

The Council says many people experience this rise of Kundalini energy and never know it. They just begin to feel better and have better thoughts because they are opening to energies that aren’t available when you’re worried, depressed, or your energy is heavy.

Many people say it’s a horrible experience to have your Kundalini open, and The Council says if you believe this, that is what you’ll experience.

The Council advises controlling Kundalini energy with your thoughts, know that it’s there, and if you’re interested in raising this energy you can do this slowly so that your body and your mind can handle it.

It’s a raising and expanding of energy so you can have deeper experiences while still in your human body.

Mariner2Mother says her Kundalini energy opened up in her somewhat spontaneously, but The Council says this isn’t the case. It’s happening because her higher self (spirit) is choosing to have this experience.

The Council says the simplest way to explain Kundalini is to describe the seven chakras and what each one does, and how you are learning there are seven more chakras inside each chakra. From deep inside you this energy slowly works it’s way up from one chakra to the next. The chakras gradually open and send out a much higher vibration and energy that you’re able to tap into.

The Council says raising your Kundalini is a normal process that can be very beautiful, and there’s nothing to be afraid of.

Mariner2Mother can pray on each chakra, learn the colors of each chakra, and meditate on the seven different chakra colors within each chakra; these seven chakras are the size of a pin head.

In response to Mariner2Mother describing her Kundalini process as challenging for her, The Council suggests asking her spirit (or higher self) to slow down this process so it’s not so exhausting. When she describes much of her experience as “Hell on Earth”, The Council says this experience of Hell on Earth isn’t necessary.

The Council finishes with guidance to send love to every chakra.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Mariner2Mother and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

What is My Spiritual Purpose?

This post is about a question from a reader named Kristi, who asks The Council about her spiritual journey. She says it’s almost like she has a constant magnetic pull to the spiritual realm and when she tries to distance herself from spirit, she ends up right back at it.

The Council asks why she’d want to distance herself from spirit? Her spirit connection reminds her of who she truly is, which is part of why she came into this lifetime. It’s very much a part of Kristi’s life in this incarnation because in so many other lifetimes she’s walked the spiritual path and believed in love and compassion, which is what she came to bring into her current lifetime.

The Council advises daily meditation and for Kristi to read all the books she can find on spiritual channels because she has the ability to channel spirit if she wants to.

The Councils says it’s wonderful that Kristi feels this spiritual influence in her life and asks her to feel in what direction it’s pulling her. This is exactly what she wanted to experience in this lifetime. Don’t pull away from spirit. This journey can take her to many different places an help her meet many people who will be attracted to her vibration.

Kristi didn’t plan in spirit which way she wanted this spiritual pull to take her. She only knew that she wanted to be deeply connected to the spiritual realm.

The Council advises Kristi to use her imagination to visualize herself in many different situations and see what feels best to her and follow this direction. Begin with small steps. Each step will bring her to another and another and she’ll fulfill what she has planned for this lifetime. She wanted the excitement of being on a spiritual path and to discover her journey as she moves along her path.

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

How to Communicate with Autistic People

In this post a reader named EG asks The Council for advice on how to communicate with people who have Autism, after reading one of our previous posts on Autism.

The Council says to show these people love, compassion, and joy. Speak to them through your mind. In the beginning, if they allow you to touch them, it’s very helpful to reach out and touch their arm or their shoulder while communicating with them. When they’re feeling safe with you they’ll let you touch them.

When speaking with Autistic people it’s helpful for you to form pictures in your mind of what you are trying to communicate.

Meditation will raise your vibration and give you the support you’re looking for when communicating with Autistic people.

Autistic people are very wise and quick to pick up on your feelings. Surround yourself with the happiest, most loving vibration you can while you’re around people who have Autism.

EG closes by saying they guess they aren’t evolved enough to communicate with Autistic people, but they’d still like to try. And The Council laughs and replies that EG is more evolved than they believe.

Listen to our entire 3-minute conversation with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for EG and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel.

Moving to Cambodia and Leaving a Cat Behind

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, Just Me Again. She’s planning a move to Cambodia next year and she has to leave her cat behind. She’s found someone who’s willing to take the cat and she asks if this is the right person. The Council asks her to search her heart to see if she’s comfortable giving her cat to this person and if there’s a loving vibration there.

She asks what she agreed to offer her cat in this lifetime, and The Council says when we come together with the soul of an animal, there’s no agreement or plan what you will do. You come together because you need each other. It’s a coming together to support each other in the feeling of love.

She asks about previous lifetimes with this cat and The Council says they can’t see a previous lifetime.

She asks if the cat understands why she has to leave her behind and if she’s ready to move on. The Council says the animal knows it is loved, but may not understand the reason she’s leaving the cat behind. The cat will know if it’s being left in a good place, and the love it feels for Just Me Again will continue.

She asks if she had a previous lifetime in Cambodia and if it’s the right move and time for her to go. The Council says within a year it will be a good time to move there, but they don’t see an immediate move.

She asks about a Cambodian woman who said Just Me Again was her doctor in a previous lifetime. The Council sees her aiding soldiers in a war in one lifetime. In another, back in Greece she was considered a doctor with very advanced healing abilities that she brought with her from Atlantis, and The Council believes she may have healed the Cambodian woman in this lifetime.

Lastly she asks The Council about a flower essence blend she feels guided to make for tourists in Cambodia. The Council says to meditate on the blends. They feel there will be 5 different ones that she’s already created in her spiritual reality. And they recommend she soften each blend with a bit of Rose.

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

Did I Know My Friend in Other Lifetimes?

This post is inspired by an anonymous reader who met someone they became friendly with and although the relationship was short-lived, this person made an impression in Anonymous’s life. They ask The Council to confirm their suspicion that they knew each other in other lives and if this is true, what was their relationship in these lives. Anonymous is also interested in whether they will reconnect with this person in this lifetime.

On a separate note Anonymous asks whether they were ever interested in herbs and healing in other lifetimes because they are drawn to this in their current lifetime and it feels familiar.

The Council says in the current lifetime it is the remembering of shared other lives that has brought you together for a short time like ships passing in the night.

The Council says in other lives you’ve been sisters, mother and child, a married couple, and peers who worked together, and they say to enjoy this familiar feeling you’ve identified with.

The Council says there’s a possibility you will reconnect with this person in the remainder of this lifetime as long as your life choices bring you in this direction.

The Council say Anonymous has dealt with herbs, oils, and mostly crystals in other lifetimes and they suggest Anonymous familiarize themselves with this. The Council also suggests Anonymous begin to meditate if they don’t already. This will connect them to a peacefulness and help them with the direction they want this lifetime to go in.

Listen to this brief 3-minute session with The Council on these questions to hear all of their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

Feeling Down After a Recent Energy Healing

This post is inspired by questions for The Council from a reader named Linda about a distant energy healing she received recently to clear her aura of negativity. Since the healing took place she’s felt down, not much joy, and seems to have lost her flow in life. She asks The Council if these feelings will pass, or is there something she can do to re-establish her joy and get unstuck from where she finds herself?

The Council begins by pointing out the ability to heal herself lies within Linda rather than within an external healer. Sometimes when you go to another person for a healing, that person will send you healing energy and your body and spirit will use this energy in the way that’s best for you. What The Council sees is that this healing stirred up a lot of Linda’s emotions and instead of getting the full clearing she wanted, these emotions have been brought up so she can learn to heal them herself.

The Council suggests meditation, prayer, working with crystals, and using her healing inner light. See the energy go into and around her body and lift out what needs to be removed.

Another exercise Linda can do is one she also used in a lifetime as an American Indian where she would stand on a hilltop on a windy day, raising her arms, and ask the Wind God to blow through her and remove whatever is negative or she doesn’t need.

The Council says the reason these emotions were stirred up is to get her to know she has the power to heal herself. And they add that the person Linda chose to do this energy healing did exactly what was necessary, with love, to push her forward in finding her true self.

Listen to the entire 6-minute session we did with The Council (below) on Linda’s questions to hear all their guidance for Linda and the rest of us. And let us know what you think.

Remembering You Are Spirit – Free Will – Other Lifetimes – Reason for Poverty

This post is inspired by a comment from Tracy on a post we published in April 2013, which was before we made recordings of sessions with The Council available. That post answered one of four interesting questions from a reader named Jose about why we fail to remember who we are as spiritual beings in our physical life.

Tracy asks a few questions beginning with, “What if we don’t succeed on any level?” And ending with a comment about seeing the mistakes we’ve made, “but have no power left to sort it out, and already feel dead.”

As we re-read the post Tracy commented on, we decided to make a recording of it available in this post in the hope it might be helpful to Tracy and other readers, at least until we can publish a post to answer Tracy’s questions. While the earlier post answers only one of Jose’s questions, the following recording has The Council’s answers to all four of Jose’s questions. In case you’re interested, here are the five posts we published back in 2013 to answer these questions.

  1. Every Question Is Important
  2. Why Do People Appear Unable to Fulfill a Spiritual Intention to Have Fun and Remember Who We Are?
  3. Does Spirit’s Pre-Birth Planning Negate Human Free Will?
  4. Future Lives, Connecting with Famous ‘Dead’ People, & the Importance of the Present
  5. What Is Spirit Up To?

Thank you for your questions and comments, Tracy. We’ll do our best to get The Council’s answers and publish a recording of the session in the near future. In the meantime we hope our readers will listen to the following recording of our session which prompted those questions and let us know what you think.

Bringing Love Into Negativity

This post answers several questions from an anonymous reader named D, who says it’s been a while since she last spoke to us, but feels she’s moved mountains since then and is finally learning to heal from within. D continues that once she opened her heart and started asking questions, she discovered a new world that taught her about life and her purpose on Earth.

D’s has worked in New York for 16 years and says she never realized how negative an environment it was until she became a more positive person. The Council says D speaks of negativity as if it’s something unwanted, but there are many many people who can’t get to a positive place until they experience negativity. And when they become positive there’s great appreciation for what the negative has taught them.

D finds it’s easier to connect with her higher self when she’s in her comfort zone. And The Council says it’s in this quiet time you can hear your guides, stay connected to source, and get help with what you experience as negativity. They go on to say that you create this negativity to see how you can bring the love you are in spirit into these situations. They advise sitting for 5-10 minutes a day in this quiet and she will hear what she needs to hear, feel what she needs to feel, and connect to who she truly is.

The Council says many people don’t understand what most people call negativity is really something we as spirit have brought into our reality. What we consider annoying people or situations are really wonderful souls who choose to be part of our negativity and allow us to see these situations differently, bring love into them, and grow.

D asks if prayer, meditation, and guidance are the best ways to communicate with spirit guides when we need advice, and The Council says yes. When I asked the difference between the three The Council said prayer is asking and talking, meditation is listening to your higher self, and intuition is the voice of your higher self.

D asks how she can teach others when they’re so close-minded. The Council says people aren’t close-minded; they are searching and growing at their own pace. Teaching is more than words, and some people aren’t ready to hear what you say. You teach by your actions and by example. When you show love, when you show how you’ve grown and how you handle things differently, that teaches more than words.

D says her heart keeps pointing her to Ireland, a place she’s never been and knows nothing about, and asks if there’s a reason her spirit keeps pointing her in that direction. The Council says if she feels this in her heart, this is her intuition and why wouldn’t she go.

The Council suggests D move forward with the main reason she came into physical reality: to bring the love she is in spirit into it. Her negativity is there to teach her to turn it around and help her grow. It may be hard for her to believe that when she looses patience or is angry with someone, it is another part of her in this other person, coming forward to give her more understanding. We are all connected.

Listen to the entire 26-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance during this wonderful session.

Will This Be My Last Lifetime?

This post is inspired by a question from an anonymous reader who wants to know if The Council can confirm that this will be their last lifetime. (This question was asked on June 8, 2015, but was apparently not posted, so we’re posting it today.)

The Council is clear that this person is the creator of everything that they experience in their lifetime. So if they feel it is their last lifetime, they will create it that way. And yet when they return to spirit and see how much more there is to do, they may change their mind and come back to learn more and help others.

The Council says many who wish to return to spirit and not come back become guides and helpers to others who are here. And so if they feel this will be their last lifetime, when they return to spirit they will create that. Eventually they want to come back into physical form, but it’s entirely up to them. No one will tell them they have to come back.

The Council advises if it feels good to think this is their last lifetime, then they should stay with that thought and feel good in it. And The Council also says they can’t tell if this will be this person’s last life. This is entirely up to them, whether they come back or stay in spirit.

The Council says they will still be creating and there is no ending. And they remind us our greatest tool is choice, whether it is here or in spirit. And they encourage us to have fun in our choosing.

When asked if there’s anything else they want to discuss, The Council suggests we meditate on who you are, that all is well, that we have choices in everything, and that we are here to experience love. And they remind us to look at everything in our lives and know that we have created it.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to receive their full guidance.

Past Lives, Trust, and Future Reconciliation

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who asks why the man she was seeing said they were together in a few past lives when she doesn’t believe this to be true, and why was he confused how he felt about her. She also asks if there’s a possibility of a reconciliation with her ex-best friend who she does feel a past life connection with.

The Council sees there have been several lives together with the man she was seeing and they ask why is this so hard to believe. They see there is a feeling of not trusting what she’s being told because this man does not have the best intentions. And they suggest the possibility of getting away from this relationship because this lack of trust is a red flag from her higher self.

The Council says by bringing love into this situation she can honestly speak about this lack of trust with this person. But because there’s a trust issue they ask her to look at other places in her life where there have also been these issues. The Council says this person is the one who is helping bring forward these trust issues in her life because that is something she wishes to heal in this lifetime. And they also say that just because they have been in several lives together, this is not a reason to be together in this life. His purpose in her life has more to do with getting her to face her issues with lack of trust.

On the subject of reconciliation with her ex-best friend The Council sees this situation coming full circle and there will be a reconnection in the future and more understanding what this relationship is about. But first she needs to work through her trust issues so that when this relationship comes around again there will be a different outcome with more understanding.

When Bob asked for any specifics on how this woman might look at her trust issues The Council used the metaphor of peeling an onion one layer at a time. When she feels this distrust they encourage her to ask what this reminds her of and see what memory comes from that. And then to ask again and again, going further back in her life, until she finds a pattern to what set off this distrust.

And once she gets to that point everything will begin to change. Her understanding of how these people came into her life to help her experience and work through these distrustful situations will allow her to be more comfortable with the people in her life.

The Council reminds her to meditate on the next step, ask why she feels this mistrust, and to remember she is spirit in a physical body. Ask herself what she was trying to experience and the answers will come.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session below to get all The Council’s guidance for this woman.

Will I Have a Child, and Will It Be the Soul I Aborted?

This post is inspired by questions from an Anonymous reader who recently had an abortion and wants to know if she’ll ever have children. The Council says yes, this is planned for. And when she asks if the aborted soul will return to her as her child, The Council says there’s a great bond between these two souls from sharing many lifetimes and they see an agreement between the two of them for this soul to return to her.

When this soul returns The Council says it will be male, and sees them learning much from each other. But mostly this child will come to help Anonymous on her path, and guide her to be different from how she’s been.

Anonymous says she thought she’d find love and get married, and wants to know why her positive affirmations about this aren’t working for her. The Council points out that even though she is using positive affirmations, she doesn’t believe this will happen. They say until she has more positive beliefs, her negative beliefs will continue to create what she doesn’t want.

When I (Bob) ask The Council for advice on how to change her beliefs, they say her affirmations are good, but they advise her to meditate, read spiritual books, and start practicing the manifestation of small things at first. When she can create these small things by thinking of them, and feels grateful when they happen, she will know that’s how she also creates the bigger things she wants in her life.

The Council advises her to appreciate herself and feel a happy vibration as often as she can. And they say meditation will help with this. They advise her to never give up her dream of being married to a man she loves. And they remind her that by feeling this won’t happen, she’s defeating herself.

The Council asks her to focus on the kind of man she’d like in her life, and by feeling this, that kind of man will be drawn to her. They advise her to ask the question in her mind as men walk by, are you the one? And thinking, I’m ready. If she can play this game, this will help her attract the man of her dreams.

And she’s also asking how she can bring positivity and change to her health and her career. The Council says with her meditations, her being more focused on happiness and the kind of partner she wants, and knowing a child is waiting to come to her, there is a new beginning and staying in these happy thoughts will change her health.

The Council asks what she wants to be, and looking for what she is interested in she’ll find it. By putting it out there that she wants a new, interesting career and being ready for this, she can draw this in.

The Council says the changing of her vibration will quickly fix her situation, and they advise her to have fun reading spiritual books, have fun meditating and looking for a new career, and most of all have fun playing the game of are you the one? By believing she’s ready for abundance and happiness, and that she’s ready for a child, all of this is there for her.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council below for all the details.

How to Work with Crystals

This post is inspired by a question about working with crystals from a long time reader named Jan who’s particularly interested in glass-like Andara crystals.

The Council begins by advising you to buy Andara crystals from someone who’s reliable and knowledgeable about them because they look like glass and many are not the real crystal. And they say when you hold one of these crystals you should immediately feel a warmth in your hands.

They talk about the ways crystals were encoded with information and knowledge in Atlantis, where Jan experienced working with them in another life. And they talk about meditating with crystals to receive the knowledge held within them.

The Council says Andara crystals are excellent for healing and developing psychic abilities and they recommend a way of working with them on the body for healing and for grounding.

And they recommend a way to work with multiple clear quartz crystals placed on different parts of the body to enhance meditation, psychic ability, and intuitiveness. Listen to our 11-minute session with The Council to answer Jan’s question.

What is the Name of My Spirit Guides?

This post is inspired by a question from Wendy who asks what are the names of her spirit guides and how many does she have?

Many people desire the name of their spirit guides, but The Counsel says spirit guides and angels don’t assign themselves names. They only come up with them when it’s something needed by you, but that isn’t what this is all about. They say what’s important is the feeling of connection you have with angels and guides and the information that comes through to you.

Can you accept that spirit is with you to help you? Go with the feeling. Stay in the vibration of connection and the information will become more important as time goes by. But if it’s really needed, ask for the name of your guide or guides. You can even specify how it will come to you.

The Counsel reminds Wendy and the rest of us that in the end we are all one and asks if it’s really necessary to name your guides. When Wendy says she believes she’s gone through the appropriate steps to communicate with her guides she gets nothing, but The Council says they feel she has gotten much information.

The Counsel suggests Wendy meditate on her spirit guides names if this is important to her and they give her a brief meditation for this.

Listen to the 7-minute session to hear The Counsel’s full answer to Wendy.

Why Do People Appear Unable to Fulfill a Spiritual Intention to Have Fun and Remember Who We Are?

This post is the second in a series of posts describing a session with The Council on March 30, 2013 to answer questions from Jose, Michelle, and Deborah. Our first post in this series, Every Question is Important, described The Council’s point of view that every question a human being has for spirit is an important question because every human being is part of spirit and every question is worthy of spirit’s attention.

In this current post we describe the portion of the session that focuses on The Council’s answer to this fourth of Jose’s four questions:

“If we come to this incarnation to have fun and ‘remember’ who we really are, why do most people, if not all, fail at this attempt?

“If we are that powerful as spirits, why don’t we leave ourselves iron clad clues of who we are so we can retake our power during this incarnation, instead of being collective sheep following false idols while being subjected to the powerful few?”

—Jose

We’ve wondered about variations of this question from time to time and it’s easy to imagine others interested in spirituality have had similar questions. The Council’s initial response to Jose’s question was:

“Because it is almost like a scavenger hunt. If you came in knowing everything you wanted to do and who you were, it would be quite boring.

“And so when you jump in, the experiences that you create for yourself are there to remind you who you are [and] to show you [that] you have the power of choice, you have the power of creation, [and] you have the power to bring love into every situation.”

—The Council

Trusting You are Spirit in a Physical Body

Jaqueline’s Question

This is the first of two posts answering questions from Jaqueline, who asks The Council how to follow her inner guidance and find inner peace “even when things seem to be so messed up” in her life.

Jaqueline writes that she understands and sincerely believes in teachings like The Council’s and other teachers she’s familiar with who say, “We shouldn’t worry about anything ever because everything is gonna be just fine,” and, “We should enjoy life and think about whatever we want in our future in a positive vibration.” “But sometimes [it] is really hard to put this in practice.”

We like Jaqueline’s question because it frankly addresses a dilemma faced by many of us who are trying to follow teachings like The Council’s. In our saner moments these teaching make a lot of sense to us; they inspire us and lift our spirits. But sometimes, despite our best efforts, life can feel like an insurmountable challenge. When this happens it can feel equally challenging to remember and put in to practice these teachings about who we are as spiritual beings.

At the time Jaqueline wrote her questions for The Council she commented that, “All the time my head seems to be full of stressful thoughts about my future…about my present…if I’m going in the right direction…if I should do something…or nothing at all. Sometimes I get trapped in some drama and get very emotional about everything. Resuming, I have a hard time going with the flow.”

Stressful thoughts, feeling trapped, and feeling other unwanted emotions can be a challenge. When we feel this way and we also believe we’re not supposed to ever worry about anything and we should always be enjoying life, these expectations can sometimes add to the challenge of turning the situation around so we can ‘go with the flow’.

On July 24, 2012 we had a conversation with The Council (non-physical spiritual guides speaking through Cynthia) to get their advice on how to feel more in touch with well-being on a day-to-day basis when life seems to make this difficult.

This session contains many helpful insights, but for us the highlight is the reminder to meditate regularly on the idea that each of us is a spiritual being in a physical body. The Council advises that this type of regular meditation will help us feel more trusting that we really are spiritual beings, and this trust will help us through difficult times.

Interestingly, The Council says that as spiritual beings we actually look forward to these challenging human experiences because we view them as desirable opportunities to expand who we are as spirit into a physical reality.

This post relates the details of this session with The Council, and also includes some information on two meditation techniques they recommend. We plan to publish separate posts describing these meditations in more detail and eventually we plan to include audio recordings of these meditations as guided meditations.

This session also included The Council’s answer to Jaqueline’s question about whether she is going in the ‘right direction’ career-wise, and how career choices relate to experiences we have in other lifetimes. We feel this information is better suited to a separate post and we plan to publish that post in the near future also.

Communicating with the Spirit of Loved Ones Who Have Passed

Bobby’s Question

This post is a response to a question from a reader named Bobby, who believes, “Spirit…[is], at times, available to us here on Earth when we want signs, information, a visit.” Bobby says, “I find it curious…, when I’ve had sessions with mediums/psychics/sensitives, my wish/want to have a visit or get information from specific relatives does not seem to manifest. …I have questions as to why some seem able/available, while others make no ‘effort’ to so much as send information to us?”

Bobby continues: “I have visited with more than a few reputable mediums/psychics who have given me very clear, relevant information/guidance, so I am fairly certain it is not the person(s) ‘translating’ the information in my situation. And I have most definitely had my fair share of crisis in my life well worthy of someone stepping in and sending me a shout out. But if Spirit is sort of out there willing and waiting to communicate in one form or another, why is it only some want to step forward?”

Bobby also wants to know: “At what time (if ever) is Spirit that has left this realm, available to us here for information? For example, Osama bin Ladin recently left our planet. Is he going to be a Spirit out there that someone, anyone, can speak with?”

They are Always Available

In response to Bobby’s comment that she believes spirit is available, at times, when she’s looking for spiritual guidance, The Council replies:

“They are always available.

How to Create Harmony and Balance in a New Relationship

A Question from Sky

This post is a response to Sky’s question for The Council about how to find “the highest and most loving way to create harmony and balance in my new relationship.” Sky’s full question can be found here.

After reading Sky’s question to The Council, they expressed a desire to address it sentence by sentence to make sure they address each issue.

You Have Access to Higher Wisdom

The Council enjoyed Sky’s reference to them as “Beloved Council.” And they love that Sky is thankful for their higher wisdom, but they remind Sky and the rest of us that humans are spirit in a physical body and we have the potential to access the same wisdom, but we tend to forget we’re spiritual beings with this ability. The Council says it’s their desire to remind us of the wisdom we have within us, and they do this by “knocking us on the head a little bit, and opening the door of our heart a little bit” to help us access this wisdom within ourselves.

How Do You Recognize True Inspiration from Spirit?

A Question from Chris

This post is a response to a question from Chris, who asks The Council, “How do you really know when messages from meditation are really what to follow?” Chris explains she often gets excited by ideas to go in a certain direction with her life, but when she considers these inspirations in the light of her day-to-day experience, they don’t seem so inspirational any more. Chris gives the following two examples: ideas about new people coming into her life that never seem to come, and ideas about a direction she should take for work that maybe don’t turn out the way she hoped.

Chris’s questions seem relevant for many readers, even if you’re not a meditator. If you ever felt good about an inspiration to take your life in a particular direction, only to end up feeling confused when the inspiration ends up feeling like an impractical and unattainable desire, you may find The Council’s guidance helpful.

March 27, 2011 Daily Thought

What you call ‘the planetary shift’
Is an increase in energy
Received by your planet at this time
Because you have asked for it.

It is to help you increase and expand your awareness,
And help you see and do things differently.

Meditation will help you to absorb this energy.

We in the Non-Physical are Always With You

This post contains a message from The Council on the love that spirit experiences coming into physical reality to help all here experience freedom. It’s a brief message, but one of the most loving, uplifting, and inspiring we’ve received. It’s also an important reminder we aren’t alone in our physical existence and that spirit is always with us.

The Council’s Message

“And so today we will talk about the spirit – how unafraid all spirits are to come forth into the physical. It is looked upon as a way to help physical and non-physical expand. There is a great feeling of love to come into this planet and help all that are here – and all that will be here on future trips – experience more freedom.

“With each incarnation we open the road for the ones that come behind us. And there is nothing but that intention to experience joy and love and be playful.  And we do not come here to experience hardships, as some have taught.

“And as we hear Cynthia say her favorite song, My Heart Will Go On Forever [from the movie Titanic], it is not the physical heart, but the love within it that indeed does go on forever.

“As you return to the non-physical, all the love that you have felt in this particular lifetime comes back with you. And there is such a vibration, there is such an expansion, and we all truly benefit from this. And the vibration continues to become stronger. And it reaches out so everything will feel this vibration, from the human, to the animal, to the plants, and the Earth itself. And every kindness that you do, and every good intention, every action helps us all to evolve.

“And so, whenever possible, reach for this feeling of love: in your meditations, in something you want to do, in a memory, or in just sitting and feeling the wellness and knowing that we in the non-physical are always with you. And as we watch you, we also know we are not alone – that you are always a part of us. And so this continues.

“We are all one. And so, as we like to think of you as our little brothers and sisters who have gone forth, we send you our love.”

A Note From Bob & Cynthia

We hope these words somehow help you experience the feelings of love, acceptance, appreciation, joy, well-being, and connectedness to spirit that we experienced during our meditation, and to some extend we continue to experience. It’s gradually beginning to sink into our awareness that the energy and vibration of these feelings is something spirit continually and unconditionally offers all who are experiencing a physical reality; and the willingness of any person to allow an experience of it, in any moment, will help anyone experience this energy, these vibrations, these feelings, more and more.

We welcome your comments and feedback on this post and our other posts on this blog. Feel free to let us know if you have a question you’d like to ask The Council. As their message states, there is a great feeling of love on spirit’s part to help all who are here experience more freedom.

Beginning to Channel a New Consciousness

This is a post about a new consciousness–a new voice–that seems interested in speaking through Cynthia lately, and how we’ve been experiencing this .

Almost a month ago after a session with The Council, Cynthia mentioned that during the session she was aware of a new consciousness in addition to the five spirit guides she experiences of as The Council. This new consciousness felt very much in harmony with The Council, but distinct from it. She described it as feeling powerful, clear, present and strong. It seemed to Cynthia that this consciousness had something to say, but when she tried to let it speak through her, no words came. She said it was as if she didn’t have the words to convey what this consciousness had to say.

I found this very interesting and took an opportunity during another session with The Council to ask about Cynthia’s experience. Here is some of what The Council had to say.

Feelings are Guidance from the Pure Spirit We Truly Are

Feeling a Need for Change, but Uncertain about a Career Move to the Arts

In this post The Council offers guidance on decision making. The post is a response to Sandy’s request for guidance about a career decision. He’s between jobs and wonders if he should stick to a career path he’s familiar with or try something completely outside of the box. He likes the idea of being involved in the Arts, but he tends to think of himself as a math and science person.

What Do I Do With My Life

The Council observes that many of us stress over making decisions, and this stress can make it difficult to achieve the outcomes we desire. They suggest when it comes to making decisions about the path to take in our life, the more relaxed we can be about the process, the more satisfying the outcome will be. For Sandy, The Council suggests making an effort to enjoy this time between jobs and to consider his desires.

“What brings you happiness? Which thought? Which imaginary situation brings you joy…a smile to your face? There are many things you can choose from.”

–The Council

You Are Pure Spirit in a Physical Body – Part 1

Robyn’s Request

This post is the first part of a response to a comment by Robyn (click to view comment) who asks The Council for support and guidance to:

  • Get past feeling it’s not safe to be herself
  • Stop believing she will be rejected if she expresses her true feelings
  • Start speaking and living her truth

Robyn adds that she:

  • Seems to have spent most of her life running away from herself
  • Has tried being almost anyone but who she really is
  • Has tried to make herself more like people she’s admired
  • Never got to know who she genuinely is, and suspects the reason is that she won’t be able to love and accept herself
  • Is tired of pretending

Thank you, Robyn, for your comment. If it hasn’t occurred to you already that your questions are evidence you’ve started speaking your truth, you may want to give this some thought.

Meditation for Spiritual and Emotional Inspiration

This post is inspired by a question for The Council from Gayle. Gayle asks how she can have a deeper understanding and a better sense of the information she often experiences from her ancestors.

Who are Our Ancestors?

When Cynthia and I asked The Council Gayle’s question, they were careful to point out that it’s limiting to think of our ancestors as only people in our family bloodline. From The Council’s point of view, all human beings are eternal ever-lasting soul energies that experience many lifetimes, in many bodies, in many families.

From this reincarnational point of view, The Council encourages us to think of our ancestors as all the souls we’ve come to know and love through experiences we’ve shared in all our lifetimes (as well as between lifetimes). The Council believes this is a less limiting way of thinking about ancestors – a way of thinking that can make it easier to access spiritual and emotional inspiration and guidance.

Meditation to Improve Spiritual and Emotional Inspiration

The Council advises that prayer and meditation will help us develop the intuitive abilities Gayle desires. The Council particularly recommends working with the Crown chakra at the top of the head for spiritual intuition and the Heart chakra in the center of the chest for emotional intuition. They emphasize that working with these two energy centers together is a particularly powerful way to improve our perception of the ever-present inspiration and guidance available from spirit.
