Problem Being Estranged From Her Family

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kali, who’s concerned about being estranged from most of her family. She says the estrangement feels terrible, but she hasn’t found a way to reconcile with her family. Kali asks if there’s a soul contract reason for this estrangement and how she can move forward. And she asks for advice on how she can reconcile with her family, or how she can be peaceful with the estrangement.

The Council says each person in this family is on their own path and wants to learn different lessons. You’re all here to learn about love and forgiveness.

This family does have a soul contract: it’s to come together and allow each other to create the atmosphere they need to learn.

You wanted to figure out who you are as a spiritual being, and see each person in your family from a spiritual perspective. Each person has a hardship and one or more lessons they have to go through. As you begin to see your family from this more spiritual perspective, what goes on in the family begins to change.

What has this estrangement from your family done for you? How do you see yourself in this situation? Do you feel less than because your family isn’t close? Do you blame yourself for certain things? Are you dealing with anger? If you’re going through any of these feelings, why are you taking on these negative thoughts? Change the perception of who you are by focusing on yourself and what you’re learning from each person in your family.

You’re family has chosen to come together, not so much to learn about everyone else, but to learn a little bit about everyone else. Now take the focus and put it on yourself. Your family situation was created for each family member to go deep inside themselves and see what you think about yourself according to how you’re being treated by the family. Are you feeling abandoned? How do you feel about all the fighting and verbal abuse? Do these feelings make you feel less than the spirit you are? You’re still part of all spirits that are here trying to create and learn.

As you figure out who you truly are as a spiritual being by watching the other members of your family and understanding, even if just a little bit, that it’s difficult for everyone and your identity doesn’t hinge on how your family treats you. You’re a brave spirit who came to this reality at this time to learn about yourself.

The agreement between the souls in your family was to learn about the family dynamic, learn about forgiveness, learn about love, and learn about abandonment and hurtful feelings. In the middle of this learning, begin to remember you’re all spirits wanting to learn about these feelings, and then put the focus on yourself, especially when you feel the estrangement can’t be fixed.

What is your part in this family? It’s just a small part of who you are as a spiritual being. Can you look at the people in your family with kindness by allowing them to be who they are? Each person in your family has chosen to be there to learn about themselves. Some will learn and some won’t.

Appreciate who you truly are as a spiritual being, not only in your family, but with friends and coworkers. Are you taking the love we’re here to bring into this reality and use it wherever you can, whether it’s accepted or not?

In your family the dynamic that was set up is like a keg of dynamite, but this is a good thing. The family didn’t come in and say they’d all get mad at each other. They came in and said, some how we’ll find a way to learn about ourselves. We’ll do whatever is necessary for as long as necessary to look at each other, and maybe after a while feel some sadness that there’s no connection. And then they’ll question the sadness and begin to wonder how that can begin to change. And when the desire to change is there and the true looking at one’s self begins to happen, changes must come.

The courageous souls that these family members are, came together to learn about themselves. What they’ve created is a situation where there’s understanding that everyone in the family will eventually accept what’s going on, accept their own behavior, and then move on from that behavior. As they move on, the family may not change, but you’re all wonderful spirits who have chosen to help each other grow by learning about yourselves.

It wasn’t your agreement that members of the family will do one thing or another and then all make up and come together. What was arranged was that family members will learn about themselves by being in this family. They will try very hard to bring love into this family dynamic and grow from this. No matter how this family situation turns out, everything with the family does not have to be resolved. Because the family members allow each other to go on one’s own path, this creates a great spiritual leap.

It can be difficult to accept a lack of resolution for the family situation. But when you come into this reality and say: let me learn about myself no matter what goes on around me; let me have the understanding and calmness to allow everyone to deal with what they need to deal with in their own way; and as I learn about myself and begin to change, and my energy begins to become lighter, it will reach each family member to help them on their path. This is what you’ve agreed upon.

In spirit, when you learn about yourself and you search for ways to handle situations with love, without blame, and accepting the behavior of others, the vibration will change and you must grow. It was with this thought that this family has come together.

Was There a Soul Contract Between Me and My Cat, Caesar, Who Passed Recently?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Christine, whose loved cat, Caesar, unexpectedly passed away recently and she’s in shock.

The Council says when it’s time for an animal to pass over (what some of us think of as dying), the animal knows it’s their time, and often it’s easier for them to pass when no one is around. This is what The Council sees happened to Caesar.

The Council says even though Christine’s in great shock, they ask if she’s able to imagine that Caesar’s in a beautiful place with other animals and other humans, and he’s completely happy.

The Council advises Christine to stay in the wonderful memories she has when she was around Caesar, and reminds her Caesar’s spirit is still around her. She can ask for signs that Caesar is around and she’ll receive these signs. The love between Caesar and Christine will never die and she can always touch into this love.

The Council says when it’s time for Christine to return to spirit, there’ll be people and animals she knows in spirit to greet her, and The Council reminds Christine there’s a great happiness when everyone is together again in spirit.

Christine had just returned from a great holiday and picked up Caesar at his sitter’s house. The next night Caesar walked up to Christine she had the thought to give him a lot of attention. She told Caesar how much she loved him and one day they’d all be together in spirit with all the other pets he and Christine lived with. The next day Caesar passed, and The Council commented that it was wonderful she was able to do this, and Caesar was able to hear it and understand it.

Christine asks The Council how we can know our fur babies who have passed are still with us? The Council says with your mind you can go to a quiet place and speak with your cat and ask them for signs they’re close by. Your cat will come to you in a way you’ll understand that it’s there.

Christine asks The Council if our animals have a soul contract with us? The Council says sometimes they do. Christine and Caesar have a soul contract and The Council feels they’ll be together again.

Sometimes an animal will come into many lifetimes with you to help you go through the different phases of being with an animal – learning what the animal can teach you and what you can teach the animal. Sometimes an animal will come into your life because you just need an animal. When you’re at the point in your life when this lesson is needed, an animal will show up in your life.

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

Repairing a Broken Soul Contract

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named Courtney, who wonders if two people can repair a broken soul contract if violence toward one another has occurred and there’s been too much negativity in the relationship.

The Council says you can always change a soul contract. They also say in your physical body you may desire to change a contract you created in spirit for reasons you may not be aware of in your physical body.

The Council says if you’re in a relationship with a lot of negativity, it’s best to look at where this negativity is coming from and work on these issues. If you have negativity or violence with someone and you feel you can’t change this, then you don’t understand what you wished to achieve when you both agreed to experience this as spiritual beings.

If you both see negativity in your lives and don’t want it, and you balance the negative energy you brought into this lifetime from other lifetimes that’s causing this, then you can change the soul contract.

But if you don’t understand the lesson. and there isn’t true forgiveness and love and understanding that each person is on their own path, as much as you desire to change this soul contract, the contract will remain until you find a way to grow from it. And if you don’t complete the soul contract in your current lifetime, you will have opportunities in other lifetimes.

All soul contracts are changeable if you achieve what you wanted to achieve when you created the situation in spirit (before coming into your current lifetime). You won’t necessarily understand this in your physical body, but you’ll know you’ve achieved what you wanted in spirit when you’re able to change the soul contract.

The Council says there’s a soul contract between Courtney and this other person to forgive this person, a desire to accept this person no matter what path they’re on, and to not manipulate this person. And as you work on these clues, more information will come to you.

The Council says this relationship wasn’t meant to be romantic, but if the two of them are going in that direction The Council says anything is possible with focus and belief, but the issues of negativity must be worked on to fulfill the contract.

In an extended closing The Council wishes blessings to all who write questions and are able to follow The Council’s guidance. They say this guidance will help many more who have similar questions and they send blessings to all who find this guidance helpful.

The Council advises everyone on this path to share their knowledge and love, particularly of our planet, the animals, minerals, and plants. Send love to everything and your life has to change.

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

Will I Have A Baby?

This post answers questions from a reader named Kimberly, who wants to know if it’s guaranteed she’ll have a baby when she’s ready; if there’s a soul ready to be her baby; and if Kimberly has a soul contract with this soul or souls to become her baby.

The Council begins by saying if Kimberly decides to have a baby and is truly aligned with this thought and what she’s planned for, then she will guarantee she has a baby. The idea here is that we each create the reality we experience with our beliefs, our thoughts, and our feelings.

The Council says they see three souls who have agreed to be Kimberly’s children in this lifetime if this is what she wants. The say in spirit Kimberly decided she’d come into this lifetime and then choose whether or not to have children as her life progressed.

The Council says there isn’t a written contract, but there’s an agreement that as Kimberly goes through different situations in this lifetime, if she decides to have one child, then one of the souls will join her and the other two souls will be free to have other experiences. If she decides to have two children, the second soul will join her. And if Kimberly chooses to have three children, the third soul will join her.

The Council says Kimberly had many different plans on what to do in this lifetime and which directions to go in. Most of all she wanted to be very strong, decisive, and able to take care of whatever comes along.

She wanted to be very successful in this lifetime and to be able to multi-task. Kimberly arranged with her higher self that she’d keep very busy in this lifetime. She’ll want to teach children and others around her, but not necessarily in a school setting. Because she wanted to have strong beliefs, she wanted to pass this information on to others.

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

When Someone Close to You Passes from this Lifetime

In this post a reader who goes by the name GK asks The Council what happens to a soul contract when someone very close to you dies? The Council says whatever you pre-planned together in spirit or planned with this soul after you were born, when that person leaves their physical body for this lifetime that soul contract is complete.

GK says she thinks her sister was her soulmate and she asks The Council for some insight into how their relationship changes now that her sister has passed. The Council says when someone passes, the relationship doesn’t change. You are still very connected with the person who’s passed. You still communicate with this person in your dreams; or the person who’s passed is able to connect with you while you’re asleep.

You’re able to discuss what you’ve gone through. Did you fulfill your soul contract the way you wanted to? Or maybe you didn’t fulfill your contract the way you desired and you have the opportunity to work on this soul contract again in another lifetime.

People you are close to who have left this lifetime are helping you from spirit with the rest of what you’ve planned for your life. There’s a lot of love that goes back and forth between the two of you. Just because you don’t see this person with your physical eyes the relationship is still there.

GK says she experiences a lot of grief, but she likes The Council’s advice to remember a happy memory and says she’s going to try that. The Council says it’s also good to talk to the spirit throughout your day about what’s going on; they do hear you. When it’s possible and when you allow it, you will receive information from the spirit that’s moved on.

Listen to our entire session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for GK and the rest of us, and let us know how you’re feeling about it.

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.

Are All Abortions Pre-Planned in Spirit?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who goes by the name, MangoJuice13, who asks: Are all abortions an agreed upon contract between souls before birth?

MangoJuice13 read our post, Was I Correct in Aborting My Pregnancy?, and was interested to learn the reason for the abortion in that post was to challenge a woman named Laura to see how people swayed her opinion or pushed her to do something she didn’t want to do. MangoJuice13 says she’s in a similar situation.

She made a decision to abort out of fear after her partner pressured her. She says she feels guilty and angry, and wishes she had chosen differently. And she asks: What was the purpose of this abortion and what lesson was it meant to teach her?

The Council says all pregnancies are agreed upon in spirit before birth, but all abortions are not pre-planned. They say sometimes the abortion is pre-planned in spirit. And sometimes the souls agree to come together in a pregnancy, look at what is going on in their reality, and decide then whether to abort the fetus or not. And the soul of the fetus lovingly understands and accepts whatever decision is made.

The Council says MangoJuice13’s abortion was the opposite of what’s been discussed often on our blog. In this situation the soul came forward in spirit and said it wanted to experience being aborted, just living in the womb and not coming into this reality. After the soul expressed the desire to experience abortion, MangoJuice13 stepped forward in spirit and said she would help this soul experience this. This was not a situation where MangoJuice13 wanted to experience an abortion to learn something. It was to help another soul have this experience.

The Council asks MangoJuice13 to now look at her relationship with her boyfriend and figure out if it’s the right relationship for her going forward. And to ask if the people around her are supportive, or are they not allowing her to be who she wishes to be. The Council says that is what she wished to experience.

The Council sees MangoJuice13 developing strength, making a decision to get pregnant again, and deciding if it will be with her current boyfriend or another. And that was a purpose of this experience.

Listen to the entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to answer MangoJuice13’s question and receive the benefit of their full guidance.

Why Would Spirit Choose to Be a Human Being Who Experiences Pain?

If you’ve read our Welcome post in the right-hand column of these blog pages, you may remember The Council’s #1 teaching: all human beings are spiritual beings in a physical body. In the 4-5 years The Council’s been speaking to us through Cynthia, this is the idea they have most consistently emphasized.

We mention this in connection to a recent question for The Council from Tanya, who says she’s having the most painful experience of her life because she believes a close personal friend has broken a soul agreement he made with her in spirit.

“Do you realize you have what you believe is a soul contract — we call an agreement, not a contract — with everyone that enters your life?”

I (Bob) mentioned to The Council that Tanya seems particularly interested in a specific soul agreement with one special man who’s been in her life, and how she feels he has broken this soul agreement.

“There is no broken contract or agreement. It is something that was decided between the two of you before you even entered into these bodies. And so when you go through something that is difficult, you believe, ‘uh-oh, something went wrong, this contract is broken.’

“It is exactly the way you wanted it to be, on [the part of] both partners.”

—The Council
