What’s the Best Way for Me to Connect with My Spiritually?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Christiana, who wants to know the best ways to connect to her spiritually? The Council says you’re already connected spiritually. Step 1 is to acknowledge that you are a spirit in human form even if you don’t remember it, and you’re always connected. As many times as you can during your day, just stop and think that you are a spirit having a human experience. You’re here by your own choice. See what you’re creating. Have a look around at your life and see what’s going on.

Christiana says, I feel there are many ways to connect with spirit and I want to know which are the ones that are best suited for me? The Council says there are many forms of meditation. There’s just sitting in a chair for five minutes and relaxing. Thinking happy thoughts will always help you feel more connected.

For you to start seriously meditating and feeling a stronger spiritual connection, go out in nature. Walk in the countryside, or down a path in the woods, or on the side of a lake. You’ve done this before in other lifetimes and it will help you to connect to spirit in your current life. The easiest way is to find a tree. A pine tree is best, but any tree will do. Sit on the ground with your back against the tree, close your eyes, and just wait and see what thoughts and images come to you. Do this for a while and feel the tree’s energy.

When you’ve done this for a while we suggest you visualize you are walking down a path and in front of you is a little mountain which you start to walk up. Follow it around and around until you reach the top. When you reach the top, look out and be aware of what you see. Every time you do this you may see something different.

While standing on this hilltop, connect with the Earth, connect with the mountain, with the sky, with the sun, and with the moon. This is a Native American ritual. These people were very attuned to nature. Since you’ve had these lifetimes before, you’ll find it easier to connect again as you practice.

In Native American life it was very important to be part of a tribe and a family. There was a belief in being honest and good with everyone and to support each other. If you can find a way to do that in your current life, you’ll be bringing your past lives into your current life to help you move forward and connect spiritually.

The Native Americans were great worshipers of the elements, of rain, of nature, of lakes, and trees, There was also a belief in one great God.

Many of the Native American tribes knew when it was time for them to pass on. They would sit by themselves under a tree and the others in the tribe would know that this was the time for this person to transition to spirit and they’d leave that person alone. They’d just sit under a tree and will themselves to go back into spirit. There would be dancing and chanting and the tribe would celebrate that another of their kind has gone to be with the great spirit.

It’s good for you to be around birds, hawks, and eagles because you knew how to talk to them in a past life.

Doing these things isn’t a regular sit-down meditation. Being in nature and visualizing will help you feel more connected. More and more this will open up for you and eventually you can connect with spirit guides and spirits that have passed on. This will take practice. We feel that you planned in spirit to take this path and you can achieve it.

Christiana says, I’ve been superficial with regard to connecting to spirit and I’ve also been a bit confused as to how to go about it. When I’m faced with too many options I often choose none of them. I’d like to start somewhere and have something I could practice regularly with confidence.

Christiana continues, Lately I’ve felt an attraction to Native American wisdom and spirituality. Is there a reason for this? The Council repeats that you had several lives among the Native Americans and they were happy lives. They were lives where you grew spiritually and in your community. And you’re calling those lives into your current life.

Why Would I Choose This Life and How Can I Have Hope?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Mari, who wonders why she’d choose the life she’s living and how she can have hope? Mari says, I had a very unhappy childhood. I’ve been depressed all my life and I discovered I wasn’t able to practice a profession I prepared for because of a cognitive impairment, which could be due to the long-lasting depression. I’m currently working in an unfulfilling job. I’m on medication that isn’t working after trying many. I’m unhappy and feel trapped in my marriage. I don’t have many friends or much support except for mental health professionals. Sometimes life seems like it’s too much. Can you advise what to do? It just seems so hopeless.

The Council says for you, because of your depression and hopeless feeling, we’d suggest reading the three Emmanuel books by Pat Rodegast and Ask And It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks. This will lighten your vibration a little.

We feel the depression you’re going through can be changed if you learn to do the chakra breathing we recommend in other posts, learn to meditate, and start reading more spiritual books. Do these every day. We feel that in time when you start to understand who you truly are as a spiritual being and what you can create, your depression will lessen and in time you won’t need the medication you’ve been taking. But you must take the step of working on yourself first.

Find thoughts that make you happy, even if you make these thoughts up and they haven’t really happened, but they are thoughts of things you want to happen. This will lighten your vibration and you’ll see, as you feel lighter and lighter, your life will begin to change for the better.

We see what you’ve created is finding another form of employment that would ideally be outside and more with nature, either working on a farm or in a nursery. If that isn’t possible, maybe working in a plant store. Be around nature. For you, walking barefoot in water would help. All of this will change how you feel. It will help your career and your marriage.

What keeps you down is the looking outward. You think the marriage and the job isn’t what you want, but it is what you want. And it will be more of what you want if you work on yourself with your good thoughts, meditation, chakra breathing, and reading the spiritual books. This will begin to turn your life around and turn it into more of what you want.

Unfortunately the the quality of this recording and the recording in the next post isn’t up to our usual standards. We apologize for this and we hope to avoid this situation in the future.

What Should I Do with My Life?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Derek, who says, I’ve struggled a lot with depression in my life and have always felt out of place since I was very young.

The Council says the reason you feel this way is until the very last moment of your birth you weren’t sure you wanted to come into this life. You were appreciating how much wonder, beauty, and love is in the spirit world and you weren’t sure you wanted to come into this reality at that time. A feeling of not belonging or sometimes a feeling of confusion and not fitting in can occur under these circumstances.

Derek says I feel homesick often, even when I was a child growing up with my family. The emotions are so strong sometimes I just want to explode in sadness and frustration. The Council says this homesickness is for your life in spirit.

Derek says I’d just like to hear what I need from The Council. The Council says you need to meditate daily. This is the most important thing for you. Meditation is what you wished to do to help you on your spiritual path. Once you begin to meditate daily you’ll connect to your spirit guides, you’ll connect with and learn about who you truly are, you’ll be able to see life in the spirit world, and you’ll be able to connect with others who have passed on before you.

The Council suggests any form of meditation that’s comfortable. There are many ways of doing it. There’s sitting quietly and counting your breath. There’s walking barefoot in the countryside and just letting your mind wander. There’s chanting. There’s praying. Usually being out in nature helps. You’ll go from one form of meditation to another until you find what is comfortable for you. You’ll be led to this and you’ll know when you reach it.

Derek closes by saying, I always felt the need to progress spiritually and I feel very alone right now. The Council says we can promise when you meditate daily you won’t feel alone any longer.

What Is My Purpose in This Lifetime?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Dianna, who asks The Council what her life purpose is. Diana has been training as a teacher and teaching overseas for the past 5 years. She says she knows we all make soul contracts before we come into this life, and asks what she’s supposed to be doing or learning in this  lifetime.

The Council begins by saying many souls incarnate with a soul contract to accomplish specific things they’re interested in experiencing. And there are other souls who wish to create their lives as they go along, without pre-planning before birth what they want to accomplish.

We all plan to bring the vibration of love into our lives, have fun, and not take life so seriously, but this second group of people are free to decide within their current life how they wish to accomplish this rather than pre-planning ahead of time. And The Council says Dianna is one of these souls who wished to create her life as she went along.

Although these people don’t pre-plan what they want to accomplish, they have in common with all souls the desire to learn about an emotion like love, abandonment, sadness, shame, grief, or loneliness, and to turn the difficult emotions around with love.

The Council says Dianna’s purpose in this lifetime is to experience as much as she can and to bring love into these experiences. They say to look for clues in what she wants to do by examining her teaching experiences and the work she did before she taught to see what brought her the most joy. Or she can already have ideas about what she’d like to try but hasn’t gotten around to? And they say Dianna wanted to be a bringer of light, understanding, joy, love, and support for those people she meets along her path.

It’s good for Dianna to work within a community and teach about nature if she hasn’t gone in that direction already. The Council says as she prepared to enter this lifetime there was a great desire to travel and to help the people she met who needed someone to uplift them and give them a new perspective on what they were experiencing.

Even when we make a pre-birth contract and experience our reality the way it was planned, at all times we have the ability to change this pre-planning. With this ability Dianna has the freedom to focus on a particular career, or travel more as she feels the desire to move on. The Council says the choice is always there.

Dianna was able to connect with the spirit of trees and plants and had a green thumb in other lifetimes and this is able to be experienced again in this lifetime as a career or as a hobby. The Council also see more travel would be good for Dianna because that is what was desired. But they add if she finds herself someplace she doesn’t want to move from, this is fine because there wasn’t any plan to live her life a specific way.

Listen to the entire 11-minute session with The Council (below) to receive all their guidance for Dianna and the rest of us.

Desire for a Fuller Life in Ancient Egypt and Today

This post is inspired by a question from Christine, who’s interested in knowing if the information she received from a clairvoyant about her being psychic in a past life in Egypt and having her head cut off is correct.

The Council says they see a past life where Christine was in training as a high priestess in the temples of ancient Egypt. In the temple of Isis where she served most of the time, she was one of the young girls who were considered to have great promise as high priestess for the information she was capable of receiving.

The Council says the reason Christine didn’t make it to being a high priestess is that she was imprisoned for not worshiping exactly as she was taught. She had a desire to be out in nature and would sneak away from the temple. When this was found out she lost her position and was taken away.

The Council says Christine’s gift of intuition stayed with her and they see past lives after Egypt where this intuition was considerable. She carries this intuition into her current lifetime if she’d like to work with it and have it grow within her.

The Council suggests meditation and as she progresses she’ll be able to answer questions. They say Christine would do well in a class on developing her psychic ability if she took one. And they suggest she’ll be able to get some memories of the life she had in Egypt by meditating on this.

The Council says they don’t see Christine having her head cut off in this past life in Egypt. But they do see she had an early death from a brain aneurysm due to her imprisonment, and maybe this is why she was given information from a clairvoyant about losing her head.

The Council wishes Christine a great journey as she connects her past life in Egypt with her current lifetime. They suggest reading books on Egypt and visiting museums will bring her a lot of joy.

The Council says her desire to have a fuller life and more freedom in Egypt was brought into her current life. And they say as she connects with that lifetime, that feeling will return and push her forward in her current life to find what she’s looking for. And The Council adds they feel this will be a great experience for Christine.

Listen to the entire 12-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Christine.
