Relationship Lessons and Passing Them On

This post is inspired by questions from Christine, who says she’s having a difficult time after ending a relationship she was in last year.

The Council says what Christine considers love and what her ex-boyfriend considers love is not the same. He felt love for Christine involved controlling her and keeping her where she was. He thought this was for Christine’s own good and for her protection, but it was more that he could feel in control and safe.

This was overwhelming for Christine and wasn’t allowing either of them to be the spiritual beings they truly are. The Council feels the ex-boyfriend’s challenges of anger and his need for control fed his insecurity and prevented him from bringing in the love his spiritual being desired to experience. Under these circumstances Christine’s higher self gave her the strength to put an end to the relationship.

The Council says it’s understandable Christine will feel depressed over ending this relationship, but they suggest she look at her knowledge it needed to end, how she removed herself from the situation, and what she has learned so she doesn’t fall into the same situation again.

The Council advises Christine to begin creating the kind of relationship she wants by imagining how this relationship feels and what it looks like. By changing her focus from the past to the present and future, Christine will be able to move forward in her desired direction. She can let go of the fear her next relationship will duplicate what she’s just come through and begin to think about what she’s learned from this relationship. She now knows the danger signs of being manipulated.

The Council says Christine should honor herself for learning the lessons this relationship offered and how she freed herself from it rather than stay until it became even more challenging. She’s many steps ahead of where she could have been. Christine’s ex-partner will go on to learn his lessons another way; perhaps with another partner, or being very lonely, but these are his challenges, not Christine’s.

The Council says this relationship was pre-planned in spirit by Christine and her ex-boyfriend and if she must think about it rather than focusing on the new relationship she wants to create, she should think about it with joy rather than depression. Her ex-boyfriend agreed in spirit to push Christine to develop and learn from this experience that she deserved better and needed to protect herself. And Christine had a desire to learn how to take care of herself in a severe situation.

The Council sees in Christine’s future she will have the opportunity to help another woman in a similar situation and they advise her to learn all she can from the relationship with her ex-boyfriend so she can help this woman. The Council says this is a more productive focus and it will allow her to create a more loving experience for herself.

The Council makes the interesting point toward the end of the session that when souls return to the world of spirit, they will meet the souls who put them through these horrible experiences in their physical reality and they will love them and say thank you for presenting them with these opportunities to grow.

Listen to the entire 21-minute session (below) to experience all of The Council’s guidance for Christine and the rest of us.

Ask a Question and Spirit Immediately Answers

This session is inspired by a reader named Sam and her questions about a relatively recent pregnancy she terminated. She says there are a lot of loose ends around the termination, and The Council begins by saying these loose ends Sam is talking about are all part of the learning and moving forward.

Sam says ever since she  learned she was pregnant she’s been feeling a sense of wholeness and love for herself and she asks if this love is coming from the soul of her child. The Council says while the child’s soul is constantly sending her love, the love Sam is talking about is Sam loving herself because she has followed her pre-birth spiritual plan exactly the way she intended.This love is part of who Sam truly is as a spiritual being. The Council says Sam stepped forward to help this soul, who desired to briefly experience what it was like to be in a human body, and then leave Sam’s body quickly.

Sam says the father of this child wasn’t really there during this pregnancy and isn’t currently in her life. She asks if there’s any meaning to why he was never part of the pregnancy and termination. The Council says the father also agreed in spirit to help this soul experience a brief physical life, but it was never agreed he would stay with her and be a family. Sam says sometimes she thinks about the father and wishes she could tell him all she’s learned from terminating this pregnancy. She says part of her doesn’t think he deserves to know and part of her thinks she should tell him, and Sam asks The Council what she should do.

The Council says in Sam’s spiritual pre-plan, this soul would play the part of the child’s father and then leave Sam’s life. If she chooses to involve him at this point, they say she’d be drifting from what she originally pre-planned, but they add this is okay. This is part of the choice she has in her current lifetime and they advise Sam to think about this choice. She is able to communicate with the father non-verbally and she should know on some level this communication is received. When this information is needed by him, he will have the benefit of whatever she has spoken to him about.

Sam says she’s learned not to look at this experience as a mistake, but part of her feels sad and she wonders if this is from loosing the child or from what she describes as poor decisions she’s made in her life. The Council says if Sam feels she’s made poor decisions, has she learned from them. If she had the opportunity to make these decisions again, would she decide differently based on what she now knows. And they add that this is what life is about – learning and moving on. They also tell Sam it’s important to look at the choices she’s made that have worked out for her and that she feels good about.

When Sam says she feels like she’s running away from her true self, The Council replies there’s nothing wrong with the way she’s handling her situation and they advise her to be open, accepting, and move forward. She will learn from this experience. They advise Sam to feel good about herself, look forward to having more understanding, and feel that it’s safe to let her energy expand rather than holding it close to her physical body.

Sam asks if she shouldn’t feel ashamed for hiding this pregnancy from her parents, and The Council says she is here to experience the love of spirit and there is no purpose to feeling ashamed. There is nothing wrong with the choice she made to terminate this pregnancy.

At the end of this session The Council makes the point that they answered Sam’s questions long before she wrote them on our blog. But was she able to let the answers in? Was she able to sit quietly and understand that her thoughts and feelings or the things she suddenly understood, is spirit reaching out to her with the answers to her questions?

The Council points out that when you have a question, spirit provides you with answers instantaneously, but are you receptive to them? In Sam’s case she had these answers, but she needed them to come in a different way. So she created the answers through this blog. The Council explains we have yet to fully develop to the point where we trust our intuition, and our thoughts, and our feelings. And they add that this is why we are here in this physical reality.

The Council asks Sam to let go of any shame, any regret, or any thinking of wrong doing on this situation she is coming through. It was pre-planned by her in spirit and she executed it beautifully in her physical reality. And they remind Sam to hold on to the feeling of self love.

This session offers much guidance on many aspects of terminating a pregnancy. Listen to the entire 16-minute recording below to hear all of The Council’s advice for Sam and anyone interested in this subject.

Abortion and a Spiritual Crossroad

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Guadalupe who had an abortion 3 months ago. First she asks if her abortion was pre-planned, and The Council says it was definitely pre-planned. They say she followed the path she had planned with this spirit and there is no reason for guilt.

Guadalupe asks if this soul is her spirit guide, and The Council says not in this lifetime. Maybe in other lifetimes this soul guided or will guide her, but in this particular lifetime this soul was not her spirit guide. When she asks if this spirit is close to her when she thinks of him, The Council says yes. And this soul is constantly sending her love so she can let go of any feelings of guilt about her decision to end this pregnancy.

Guadalupe asks if this soul loves her and The Council says without a doubt there is love. When she asks if this spirit plans to return to her, The Council says they don’t see that in this lifetime, but they will be together again eventually.

Guadalupe asks if there’s disappointment over her decision to terminate the pregnancy, and The Council asks why would there be disappointment when everything went exactly as planned. In response to Guadalupe’s question if this spirit is doing well now, The Council says with a chuckle that where they are this soul is doing very well. And this spirit is working very hard to send her love and hoping she will let this love in and feel it.

Guadalupe assumes she’ll never meet this spirit and asks how to contact it. The Council tells her, of course you’ll get to meet this spirit. And she can contact it through her prayers, meditation, and in her dreams. They advise her to speak to this soul either out loud or in her mind and feel this soul around her. The Council also says Guadalupe should know she gave this spirit the experience it wanted.

Guadalupe apologizes again for ending her pregnancy and The Council reminds her she gave this soul a gift of something it wanted to experience. And they say this soul stepped forward and gave Guadalupe something she wanted also.

Guadalupe asks what lessons she learned as a result of this abortion, and The Council says this situation brought her to a spiritual crossroads. Will she stay feeling guilty and sad, or will she eventually understand what a wonderful thing they both experienced? And does this open her to more spiritual experiences and feelings of love, because that is what she wants in her life?

In closing The Council suggests Guadalupe think of this soul as someone she loves who has moved to another neighborhood, and eventually she will get to that neighborhood and be reunited with this spirit.

Listen to the entire 10-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Guadalupe.

Love, Creation, and Spiritual Pre-Planning

Sarah’s Questions

This post answers several questions from a reader named Sarah who’s 23 years old and relatively new to thinking about her spirituality. She begins her questions by asking The Council for some general clarity on the nature of things and her path to intimate love.

Sarah explains how her deeper appreciation for self-love and love in general has caused her to question the meaning of twin flames and soul mates, and whether she can create them in her life.  And she describes a very close male friend who seems meant to be something important to her, but she doesn’t feel that drawn to him as a boyfriend.

Sarah asks if this young man is her twin flame or soul mate because she wants to know if she should try and create these in her life, or sit back because he’s the one. She asks how much of her situation is pre-determined spiritually and how much she controls as a human being?

The Council’s Answers

The Council starts by commenting it’s wonderful Sarah understands the importance of loving and appreciating herself rather than projecting her love onto someone else so she can feel it.

The Council addresses the question of twin flames, sometimes referred to as twin souls. After a little background which you can hear in the recording below, The Council  asks if we realize we’re all the same soul, all connected, and part of the One. And they ask if that doesn’t make us all twin souls?

The Council says many people are looking for their soul mate because they believe it will be the perfect relationship, but they don’t seem to agree. They say soul mates don’t just come along in a love relationship or partnership. They can be cousins, friends, acquaintances, and they usually push you to grow and force you to a higher level of understanding, whether it’s through positive experiences or negative ones.

In response to Sarah’s question about whether she’s able to create a twin flame or soul mates in her life, The Council says she can create either or both. The Council is firm that you as a spiritual being are in charge of your life experience.

There’s some interesting discussion about the ways your spirit pre-plans what happens in your physical reality.

With regard to Sarah’s male friend, The Council advises appreciating the connection they share, and know she doesn’t have to feel drawn to him romantically. He’s in her life for whatever experiences, fun, and challenges they go through together. But as far as a love relationship is concerned, she is able to create something else if she wants.

In response to her question about whether he is a twin flame or soul mate, The Council says because they’ve shared many lifetimes together, yes he can be a twin soul and yes he can be a soul mate. But they add that we are all those things to each other.

Listen to the entire 19-minute session below for details of The Council’s answer to Sarah’s question.

Stillborn Birth Revisited

This post in inspired by questions and comments from Janette, who asked about her daughter’s stillborn birth in a previous question and follows up with additional questions now.

After having a Cesarean section for the recent birth of her son, the doctor informed Janette that her uterus was only half formed, and this condition is responsible for stillborn births and several other problems. Having learned this she feels it’s a miracle her second child was born okay after her daughter was stillborn. But now she’s confused about whether there’s a spiritual reason for her daughter’s stillbirth, or whether it was just the physical issues with her uterus.

The Council replies that when she created these challenges in her life, does she understand it’s never something that just happens because her uterus is partially formed? It’s all been planned by her spiritual self for what she wants to learn, who she wants to help.

When Janette asks if her soul planned to be born with a partially formed uterus so she would experience her daughter’s stillbirth, The Council says definitely, and now she’s ready to let this situation go.

Janette asks if her daughter’s soul knew she wouldn’t make it through the pregnancy, and again The Council says, definitely. When she asks if her daughter’s soul planned from the beginning to be stillborn or if she decided when she was 33 weeks pregnant,  as The Council sees her situation it was pre-planned so she and her daughter could have the stillbirth experience.

When Janette asks if she knows on some higher level what the answers to her questions are, The Council says of course you do. They say on your higher level you have all the answers, and she knew she would experience a stillbirth.

Janette asks if she and her daughter didn’t agree to the stillbirth, could it have happened anyway because they had no choice and it was just something medical that happened. The Council is clear that we always have a choice. And they say if there’s a medical problem, it’s because her higher self desired this problem to help her experience this stillbirth. The Council says nothing happens by accident. It is pre-planned and everyone agreed to it. And they see that the stillbirth went according to her plans.

Janette says she thinks it’s the role of our guardian angels to ensure we don’t cross over before our time. She asks if her daughter’s guardian angel was with her during the 33 week pregnancy, and did it allow the stillbirth to happen?

The Council says guardian angels will never step in and change what you have planned in spirit. They’re job is to sort of hang around and make sure things go in the direction you wanted.

When Janette asked why her daughter’s guardian angel didn’t protect her and keep her safe inside her, The Council says she was safe in her. She was so safe that the stillbirth went exactly the way she planed for it to go in spirit.

The Council asks that Janette focus her attention now on the new soul that was just born into your life, to show it love at all times, and to teach it to be a loving person. As this child grows it will be very focused on what it wants to do in this lifetime and knowledge is what will keep him on the right track. The Council advises Janette to be part of the education that he needs. He’s here to acquire knowledge, to bring answers into his life, and be part of the souls that blaze a new trail into the spiritual world.
