Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Am I On the Right Track with My New Relationship?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who says she’d like to understand where she’s at with her spiritual development and current events in her life. Sarah says she’s done a lot of work on herself and feels very connected to herself and spirit. But she’s always concerned she’s coming from her ego, fooling herself, and making choices for the wrong reasons.

The Council asks Sarah if her concern is coming from her head or her heart. If you truly believe you’ve done a lot of work on yourself and you’re growing, your doubting would be an old pattern you’re here to learn about and let go of. When you need to make a decision get out of your head and into your heart, ask the question, then go into your solar plexus and see how you feel. Your higher self will communicate to you through the way your feel in your solar plexus. Was your doubting and the idea of being in your ego taught to you by someone? Why aren’t you relaxed enough to think, I’ve made a change and learned different things. It’s time for you to come to a place of trust and being at peace within yourself.

Sarah says a large change may be coming into her life due to a recent serendipitous meeting. She had feelings of home and recognition when she met this person although they’re very different. Creating a relationship will have many obstacles and she’s curious what’s happening here. Does she feel so sure about this person because the relationship is pre-planned?

The Council says the situation involves two spirits recognizing each other. That’s the familiar feeling. It was pre-planned to meet each other, to come into each other’s life and be helpful, but it wasn’t pre-planned to be a romantic relationship. A romance is still possible if you both wish to take your relationship in this direction. But The Council repeats what was pre-planned was to come into each other’s lives and be helpful to one another. You will recognize each other by a familiar deja-vu feeling. Sarah says she can’t see a way she’s fooling herself, but is she. The Council replies, not at all.

Sarah says she feels confident she wants to create a relationship with this person, but it’s going to be a little daunting due to the distance involved. She asks if they’re on the right track and if these obstacles will resolve themselves? The Council says you’re on the right track by meeting and recognizing a familiar feeling. In your friendship see where this takes you. What do you bring to each other? What are you learning? Then see if both of you want more than the friendship, or is it just a coming together to learn about life.

Your relationship will be what you want it to be, but it’s necessary for both of you to do the inner work. And it’s necessary, as you create whatever kind of friendship or relationship you desire, to come from the vibration of joy, of happiness, of positively knowing you can have whatever you desire by visualizing it. Go slowly with this relationship and enjoy what you have together.

You are on your path and will find your way by being excited you’re in this reality. And no matter what you created, whether it’s something to be grateful for or if it’s challenging, it’s all wanted and you’ll find your way through it and grow. Help will be there. You’ll love yourself and you’ll go on.

What’s the Purpose of Chronic Pain?

The post answers a question for The Council about the purpose of chronic pain from a reader who goes by the name, InDespair. InDespair says they’ve suffered from cervical stenosis and fibromyalgia for about 10 years. They’ve been on the same medication for years, which they’ve now built up a tolerance to, and they’re in terrible pain every day. InDespair says they’re reluctant to speak to their doctor about the pain because they’re afraid the doctor will think they’re abusing their medication.

The Council asks why InDespair refuses to help them self by talking to their doctor. The pain is here as a lesson, but InDespair needs relief from medication before they can learn the lesson the pain is trying to teach. Fear is the reason they aren’t asking for this help. Reach out to your physician and explain your situation. When you receive medication that eases the pain, then you’ll be able to ask what lessons the pain has to teach you.

The reason for pain is that you aren’t allowing your life force to flow through you. When your life force isn’t allowed to flow freely through your body, pain is caused wherever you resist the life force. Focus on the areas of pain, acknowledge the pain, and know that it’s part of your current circumstances. You’ve brought this pain in to change your beliefs.

You create this pain to stop you from your every day living so you give this pain the time it needs to be experienced and to learn from it.

Find somewhere in your body where you aren’t experiencing pain, where there’s a feeling of wellness. Imagine this feeling of wellness spreading to the area where there’s pain and watch as this feeling of wellness grows throughout the body. As you believe you don’t need to experience pain, punishment, and guilt, your life force will flow throughout your body.

You bring pain into your life to change your beliefs and you grow spiritually as you begin to recognize you’re light, love, and joy. The Council asks you to take time every day and find parts of your body that feel well.

InDespair says they’ve never abused their medication, but for some reason they worry their doctor will assume the worst. The Council says to tune in to who you truly are as a spiritual being. You deserve your doctor’s help and you should ask for it. Don’t assume you’ll be labeled unkindly.

InDespair asks, “Why in the world would we choose chronic pain as a lesson, and how can I get past my fears?” The Council says we choose chronic pain to heal beliefs from past lives that we bring into this lifetime. We choose chronic pain for the purpose of changing these beliefs so we can grow from them. The pain will subside as you focus on the areas of well-being to help yourself.

One of the areas of pain is your neck, which is the back of your throat. Is there something you’re avoiding talking about? Do you keep opinions to yourself? Are you afraid to speak your truth? This will affect the throat chakra, which includes the back of the neck. Or have you said unkind things to people? This also will affect the neck area. Work on the neck chakra and all your chakras to get the energy flowing and allow your life force to move through you. If you do this you’ll begin to see a lessening of the pain.

The Council closes by stressing the importance of speaking with your physician about new medication. They also emphasize learning about the chakras and finding places in your body that feel well and doing visualizations that bring this well-being to the parts that hurt. Know you are an eternal spiritual being in your physical body. When you can do these things you’ll begin to experience relief.

Listen to our entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for InDespair and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Why You Are Here

You are constantly given the opportunity to expand.

When you extend yourself
to help or comfort another,
you grow.

It is why you came.

You came
to extend the vibration of love
from spirit to physical.

When someone is in pain
and you can help them find relief,
you grow.

When someone has tears
And you help them find joy,
You grow.

When someone is depressed
and you help them find hope,
you grow.

When someone is lost
and you help them find their way,
you grow.

It is in extending your hands and hearts
that you grow.

There is no question
that whatever you offer
will always be returned.

—The Council

What is Karma and How Does it Work?

This post is inspired by a question from Oksana who was confused about the subject of karma and wanted to know what The Council has to say about it.

Council Comments on the Meaning of Karma

“We like this question very much – the subject of karma… how one’s thinking creates their own reality. For many centuries this idea of karma has been elusive. In the beginning it was thought that the deeds you do in this life, you would pay for in the afterlife, such as heaven if you did many good deeds, and hell if you did many bad, hurtful, horrible things – you would pay for it in the afterlife.

“And then it evolved that if you were truly bad enough in many of your lifetimes, you not only had to wait until you went back to non-physical, but you would begin to pay for it in the physical body.

“So again, you would experience many challenging situations in your life. And many people who, not understanding where this came from, would begin to think: This is my karma. I know I’m not a bad person now. I must be paying for it from another lifetime.

“And we can only tell you that you create your own reality. And by believing there is a judgmental God that will cast these horrible situations onto you – we are here to tell you this is not how it works.”

—The Council
