Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

What Is the Relationship Between the Spirit and the Human Body?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Juan, who asks: If the spirit is the basis for existence and the material world is a testing and proving ground, then is the human body just a vehicle for the spirit? What is the human body without a spirit? Is the spiritless body just a soulless zombie?

The Council begins by saying it’s good to remember you’re not a human being with a spirit, but you’re a spiritual being who’s created a human body, and many people don’t understand this yet. A body is needed to get around in this reality and feel emotions, but it’s the spirit that’s the basis for moving this body around and creating what you experience.

Spirit enters your body and gives it the breath of life. Spirit gives life meaning. Spirit gives your body the light, love, and plan to move forward into this life and what you wish to experience in your body.

Many spirits come as the body is being created within the mother and they hang around the mother and family to see what sort of environment they’d be coming into. Once the decision is made by spirit to come into this human body and this world, the spirit is attached to the fetus by vibration and energetic chords.

When the body takes it’s final breath, the spirit leaves the body. The body is no longer needed for the experiences the spirit wishes to have. Without the spirit there’s no plan to go forward with the body and the only way the body can be kept alive is by life support. The body is an empty shell, but not a zombie, as Juan asks. It’s the spirit that gives the body life.

When spirit is ready to leave the body, but it’s artificially kept alive on life support, the spirit will usually hang around the body to help the family when the plug is pulled and the final breath is taken. The spirit will wait for the acknowledgement of family and friends to know it’s the end, and when the life is over the spirit is free to move on.

Artificial bodies such as robots and androids are now being made, but there’s no spirit in these bodies. These artificial bodies can be created with memory, but there is no spirit in them.

When the spirit fully enters the mother’s body is the spirit’s choice. Does the spirit wish to experience being in the womb? Sometimes the spirit will wait and be around the mother, watching the environment and family, and then go fully into the fetus as the child is ready to be born.

The spirit has choice in all matters. Depending on the agreement the spirit has pre-planned with the parents, the spirit can experience time in the womb, and if the spirit decides what it’s seen going on in the family and the environment is not what the spirit wants, it can change it’s mind at the very last minute and leave the fetus, and this is when the child is stillborn.

Spiritual Reason for a Stillbirth Pregnancy

This post answers questions from a reader named Thuy, who says she feels devastated after having a stillborn baby last November. Though she already has two children that keep her going, she misses the stillborn child dearly. She doesn’t know why the baby wasn’t born alive and still feels lost and confused. Thuy asks The Council for the spiritual reason her baby wasn’t able to make it into this lifetime alive.

The Council says the spirit of this child wasn’t sure it wanted to come in at this time. It wasn’t the right time for this soul to be born in order to learn the lessons it wanted to learn, and so it made the choice to be stillborn. This was an option everyone in Thuy’s family agreed to on a spiritual level. There are things that need to be settled within the family before this spirit can come in and learn what it wishes to learn.

The Council feels this spirit has agreed to come back to Thuy when it’s ready to learn what it wants to learn and if Thuy’s family is able to offer an environment conducive to this learning. Look within your family. Are things calm? Are you okay financially? Is everyone getting along? Is it the right time? These are the reasons this birth did not happen at this time.

Thuy says after the stillbirth she doesn’t feel good about anything. She adds that her husband is trying to sell his business because of an indifference with his partner and she’s worried about the family’s financial future. The Council says these worries can be part of the reason this soul decided not to be born at this time.

Thuy says she used to know what she wanted in her life, but now she’s not sure what will make her happy. The Council says this could also be a reason the spirit of her child chose not to be born at this time. Thuy may need to be more sure of herself and what she’d like to do.

The Council says if Thuy wishes the spirit to return to her in a future pregnancy, now is the time to work on herself and her family. See what you’d like to do, where you’d like to live, and what your husband will do for an income. Focus on these decisions and feel comfortable with them. Do not focus on having this soul come back to you. It will return without focusing on this. Focus on your life and what’s happening right now.

The Council says if Thuy is unsure what she wants right now, go into the vibration of happiness. Play with her two children and laugh with them. Think of your own childhood and anything that brought you joy. Get yourself in the vibration of love and happiness and everything will fall into place.

The Council recommends doing whatever makes Thuy feel good. Stretch yourself and what you believe in. Meditate and you will receive answers and signs for the direction to take your life in. Relax and let in any thought that feels like fun. Bring in the vibration of fun and something will come along that gives you a new beginning. Always be ready to learn something new.

Before Thuy came into this lifetime she was interested in having a great adventure. She wanted to jump around a lot – either move physically or travel. Try lots of different things and don’t be stuck in a single thing. It’s her desire to open to many different joyous experiences.

Listen to our entire 7-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Thuy and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Is the Soul of the Child I’m Pregnant with the Same Soul from My Stillborn Pregnancy?

This post answers Jyoti’s question about whether the soul of the child she’s now pregnant with is the same soul she had a stillborn pregnancy with back in 2013.

When she and her husband decided to try and get pregnant again, she asked that soul to come back. But they also said in case that soul wants to learn more in the spirit world, any willing soul who wants to join their family will be welcome, loved, and cared for.

Now that Jyoti is pregnant she wants to develop the same bond she had with the soul in her previous pregnancy, but finds this is difficult without knowing whether it’s the same soul. She feels guilty if it hasn’t come back, the child may feel unwanted. And she asks The Council if they can let her know.

The Council begins by asking Jyoti why it’s so important that this particular soul return to her and her husband now. They say it has been with her in many of her realities and if it doesn’t return now, it will again. They continue that it’s a wonderful idea to welcome any soul that’s willing to become part of their family. And they wonder about the wisdom of telling Jyoti rather than letting her have the baby and figuring it out for herself.

But because The Council sees this is such a puzzle for Jyoti and so much on her mind, they feel in this instance it’s helpful for her to know it is the same soul from her stillborn pregnancy two years ago returning to her.

But The Council hopes Jyoti will eventually be open to welcoming at least one more soul, because there’s someone else who would also like to be part of her family. What’s important to understand is that any soul that would come to Jyoti is part her soul group. She has a special bond with each of these souls.

The Council says each of us knows all the souls in our lives. And they wish Jyoti much peace, wonderment, and excitement on what she’ll experience again with this soul, and be welcoming to the other souls that wish to be with her also.

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.

Why Was My Baby Stillborn?

This post is inspired by Janette, who had an almost full term stillborn baby girl in February 2014 and she’s been researching the spiritual reasons this might have happened. She and her husband had just gotten married and they were very excited about having their first child.

Janette asks if her and her daughter’s higher selves knew ahead of time what was going to happen the day her daughter’s heart stopped and could she have done anything to prevent it. The idea this was an accident is difficult for Janette to bare and she wants to know if her daughter chose to be stillborn.

The Council says the higher selves of Janette, her daughter, and her husband knew the baby wasn’t coming into this reality no matter what they tried to do. The child only wanted to experience what took place in the womb and wasn’t ready to experience a full lifetime. The Council says Janette and her husband spiritually agreed to allow their daughter to have this experience and at the same time Janette desired an opportunity to work through an experience of disappointment. It was 3 souls loving each other and helping each other experience a situation they all desired.

Janette says she was nervous as a first time mother and hoped her daughter didn’t experience negativity from that, but The Council says it’s fine if the child experiences what Janette was feeling because it chose to experience those emotions. Knowing what this soul wanted to do, Janette and her husband agreed to give this soul a temporary home to experience what it wanted to learn, and then pick the time and the way it wanted to leave.

The Council suggests Janette find the love she gave her daughter and understand that other spirits might not have been able to do this. She allowed this spirit to experience whatever it wanted while it was in her body, and this soul helped her experience whatever she needed to experience going through this.

Having this spirit leave put her on a new path of having to ask why this happened. If Janette can find a way to appreciate what they did for each other and feel the great love they have for each other without any guilt, she’ll realize they fulfilled each other’s wishes perfectly. Listen to the entire 18-minute session to receive it’s full benefit.

A Stillborn Pregnancy

Jyoti’s questions

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Jyoti about a wonderful pregnancy she had in early 2013 that ended in her giving birth to a stillborn baby. It tells the story of a spirit who originally planned to be her child, but just before birth agreed with Jyoti’s loving spirit to remain in the non-physical so it could learn more before coming to the physical world. She wants to try and get pregnant again and give birth to the same soul, but the pain of loosing the child left her feeling sensitive about this.

Having this soul again

Before this pregnancy she wasn’t so keen on having a child, but now all she wants is to have this soul again. She now has the understanding that all souls have purpose, pick their parents, and if they’re not ready to come into the physical they remain in the non-physical.

A Dream

In a dream the spirit came to her with a message and Jyoti asks: Why did he leave us? Is he coming back? What does this message mean? Should we try again now or wait until we’re more mentally prepared?

A Strong Connection

The Council sees a strong connection between Jyoti and this spirit and while they cannot say when she should become pregnant again, if all goes as planned there’s a good chance this spirit will return to her. So they ask Jyoti to speak to the child at night before she goes to sleep, ask if it’s ready to return, tell this spirit about their life, and see what happens.
