This post is inspired by a reader named Cait, who says she thinks about ending her life every day because it’s so painful, and she asks The Council if she’s able to break a pre-birth contract she made in spirit once her incarnation has begun.
Cait begins by asking The Council, what if the path your soul chose to achieve spiritual growth actually inhibits your spiritual growth? And The Council says this is never the case. They say your spirit works out whatever challenges it wants to meet while it’s in the physical body, and while this can seem difficult from a human point of view, your spirit knows exactly why it has chosen what it has chosen and what it is trying to accomplish.
The Council says when you begin to accept you are spirit in a physical body and believe you can learn with less difficulty, and can focus on the way you wish your life to be rather than the way it is, this is the beginning of change. You always have the power to turn your situation around. When you plan in spirit whatever you want to experience, it isn’t written in stone. You create every minute of every day, and so you can create something new.
Cait says she thinks about ending her life every day, and while The Council says there is no judgement in spirit for taking her life, they explain there’s growth she can experience from going through these challenges. And if she chooses to pass on these challenges in this lifetime she’ll be postponing them until she chooses to learn from them in a future lifetime.
Cait comments that her life is harmful to her soul, and The Council replies that her soul will never create circumstances that will harm her spiritually. It creates these situations for her to grow from them, to change them, and to bring love into them.
Cait asks how she can get out of her current challenge without killing herself and The Council advises her to refocus her attention and read as many books as possible on spiritual growth that can teach her who she is as a spiritual being.
Cait finishes her comment by saying her higher self doesn’t appear to care about her or her suffering. And The Council says Cait has no idea the love, caring, and support that spirit has for her if she’ll open up to it, even if she only pretends to feel it at first.
The Council recommends Cait read a book written by the spirit guide, Emmanuel and Pat Rodegast, and the energy from this book will help her turn her life around.
The Council tells Cait she’s come to this feeling of desperation and wanting out on purpose to experience an extreme situation so she can find a better way through this. And The Council says she will find it.
Listen to the entire 11-minute recording of our session with The Council to hear first hand all their guidance for Cait and anyone else who’s having difficulty navigating their current circumstances and is looking for a better way to experience them.
You Are Spirit, On a Journey
What we always wish to let you know
Is that you are so much more than a physical body;
You are spirit
On this journey
In a physical world.
Excerpted from The Council’s opening comments to participants of a Manifesting Your Desires meeting on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in New York City.
(The Council’s opening comments lasted about five minutes and with the exception of a brief greeting, each statement seems to stand on its own as a thought for the day. Beginning July 25, 2011 we are publishing The Council’s opening comments during this session as eight individual thoughts for the day. This post is the second of the series.)
Meditation is a tool
To help you release yourself
From the limitations
Of your physical body.
All pain and suffering
Comes from a belief
You are only your body.
When you can go within
That you are really spirit
In a physical body,
With pain and fear
It is in your quiet times
That this will be revealed to you.
Do you know that you have created your own body;
The way you look,
The color of your hair and eyes?
This was all part of your joyous decision
To have a physical experience.
You knew you needed a body
To experience this physical plane,
So you began planning your creation before you came.
Your creating began with your choice to incarnate.
As spirit, you have greater freedom
Than you experience in your physical body.
As spirit, you can visit any person or place
Just by using your thoughts.
The new energy that is being sent to your planet
Will create many Earth changes.
It will affect its geology,
And the consciousness of all spirit,
Whether in a physical body or not.
You are so much more than you think you are,
Which is precisely why you are here.
You came for the joyous experience
Of discovering you are more,
While in a physical body.
When you are depressed or fearful,
It is only because you have forgotten that
You are in control.
You are in control.
Anything else is an illusion
And a false belief.
You are a magnificent spirit
In a physical body,
Creating and exploring
