What Past and Present Life Choices Cause Chronic Pain?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, InDespair, who says The Council mentions (in a different post) that we choose chronic pain to heal our beliefs from past lives that we’ve chosen to bring into our current lifetime. And InDespair asks, “What beliefs from a past life or lives would cause us to choose enduring chronic pain in our current life.”

The Council begins by saying that chronic pain isn’t always brought in from another lifetime. Sometimes it’s just an experience that’s wanted in your current life.

In another lifetime perhaps you’ve seen someone suffering and didn’t understand it, or didn’t show compassion and help the person who was experiencing it. You may choose to experience this chronic pain in this lifetime so you have more understanding of it, and going forward in this life and future lives, you’ll bring more love to any situation where suffering is involved.

Many people suffer sometimes and they wonder why, and question what they’ve done to deserve this suffering. The Council says they’ve come into this lifetime to have the people around them learn patience and compassion and to understand what you are going through. This pain is chosen to help another soul or family of souls learn from your suffering.

The choice to go through extreme pain, hardships, or anything difficult is always the choice of the individual. Each person planning their reality in spirit will plan what they desire to experience, or they’ll experience something to help another soul go through suffering and have more understanding of it. The experience of suffering is never something  that’s forced on an individual.

Some people choose suffering to learn patience and love and to have some understanding of this experience. Many souls choose suffering to teach others, and there’s still learning on your part as you go through this. Is there a wish to turn the suffering around and heal it?

Perhaps you’ve agreed with other spirits that want to learn about someone going through pain and suffering, and you’ll tell them that you’ll go through this suffering for them. And they’ll learn from this to give you such love and understanding that you’ll have the strength and understanding to turn the suffering around and realize that love conquers everything.

The Council says you could’ve experienced pain in a prior life and didn’t know how to change it and make it better. And you wish to go through this pain in your current life to try and change it this time around. Sometimes in other lifetimes the others around you had this pain and you didn’t understand it or didn’t have patience for it. And so you want to experience this pain in your current lifetime to bring in more love and understanding about this.

The Council says it’s up to the individual whether they choose to heal this pain they’ve chosen. Many times a person will heal this pain when the spirit of another person has learned what it needs to learn from this suffering.

Bob asked The Council what’s in it for the person who chooses to experience chronic pain their whole life so others can have the experience of this. The Council says you are showing love to others by helping them experience what they need to learn and grow. In spirit when someone wishes to learn about suffering, and someone volunteers to go through this so others can experience it, it’s because we all love one another. You volunteer to go through this out of love for these people, even if this love isn’t conscious on a human level. And there’s always spiritual growth involved, even if the person going through the suffering isn’t aware of this growth at the time they’re experiencing it.

The Council say sometimes the person going through suffering becomes wiser about being a spirit in a physical body, having choices, and having the power to create in your life what’s necessary for you to also grow. It’s always a two-way street. Everyone learns from the experience of suffering. That’s the plan.

Listen to our entire 8-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for InDespair and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

How Can I Improve My Relationship with My Son and His Anger?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who asks how she can improve her relationship with her 5-year old son who’s quick to anger. Anonymous says she tries to meet her son’s anger with patience and love, but she’s burning out.

The Council says this is a difficult journey for Anonymous. The soul of her son planned to come in with a lot of anger and have this anger most of his life. The meanness and violence he can show is something that’s been agreed to in spirit by the people he comes in contact with. And her son chose to be this way to teach the people around him how to show gentleness and kindness when they’re affected by someone like him.

The Council recommends spending a lot of one on one time with her son.

Her son has chosen music to make him feel better and The Council recommends she play music for him, particularly classical music like Beethoven and particularly at night before bed, and have him create movement to this music. This should help him deal with his anger. And The Council advises trying to keep him in small groups rather than larger ones.

Learn to be kind and gentle with your son’s behavior, but teach him what’s acceptable behavior and always show that you’re loving him. You may not approve of his actions or words, but inside there’s a very brave soul that wants to be accepted and also taught how to be.

The Council repeats that her son’s behavior was agreed to in spirit and asks her not to become upset with him. He wants to learn about frustration and not being understood, and then being understood by people who are capable of teaching him.

Part of her son’s brain will have a difficult time understanding what he’s being taught because he’ll be overcome with feelings of frustration. When this happens she must remember this is her lesson also and she must learn how to handle his feelings. This is a new experience for her that was also agreed to in spirit.

The Council recommends Anonymous meditate and find time for herself. They add that counseling for her to help deal with her son may be necessary. And they also recommend reading books on past lives to learn about difficult lessons and challenges . This lesson touches everyone in the family because everyone wanted to bring love into this reality no matter how difficult it was.

Anonymous asks what she and her son are here to teach each other in this lifetime? The Council says her son is confused and this will bring on outbursts and behavior that’s unacceptable. When his behavior isn’t acceptable, it’s good for whoever’s with him to talk about this with him and how there are more acceptable ways of handling his frustration rather than with outbursts or being mean. Explain, in very short sentences, how your son can change his behavior.

Anonymous says she’s begun to think of her son as mean, and even though she realizes this is unfair and unhelpful, it’s difficult for her to find evidence to the contrary. The Council says it’s not horrible that Anonymous notices her son is mean. This is exactly what she is supposed to be doing. When this happens, talk to your son about his behavior and teach him more desirable ways to get what he wants. This is what’s needed.

The Council suggests hand holding and touch will become important to her son. Go slowly. As you take the time, you’ll see progress. It’s an important lesson for everyone around your son to become kinder and more understanding. As this occurs you’ll begin to see positive changes because everyone that volunteered for this lesson will be learning.

In closing The Council encouraged us to keep up our good work, to which Bob replied that we’ll try. The Council laughed and quoted a great spiritual teacher (Yoda from the Star Wars movies) who says, “There is no try, there is only do.” And they add they will help us do.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Anonymous and the rest of us on ways to help deal with a child’s anger, and let us know how you feel about it.

Spiritual Purpose of Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Jhendi, about depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. First they ask if there’s a spiritual purpose for these issues.

The Council says there is always a spiritual reason for experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD and it is always pre-planned in spirit. Sometimes in spirit you decide to experience these and see how you can turn them around in your human life. Sometimes you volunteer to go through these to have the people around you learn compassion and patience from this experience. And sometimes it’s to start a group or organization that works to bring understanding and change to these issues.

Jhendi says if we’re supposed to learn from these issues, does taking medication affect our learning since we get through the issue with pills rather than working through the problems on our own. This is a very interesting question.

The Council says if you get relief from medication you can take it. When you’re in a happier state you’re able to work through your problems. Many people need some sort of therapy to talk to a professional about what they’re experiencing. The Council says not to take medication and assume it’s sufficient by itself. The medication will ease you enough to deal with what comes up for you and show you how to handle it.

The Council recommends always taking the time, even if it’s a couple minutes a day, to meditate. And when they say, meditate, they mean that all you have to do is ask for the vibration of love to come into your life and find two things every day to be grateful for.

Listen to our entire 3-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Jhendi and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.
