What’s Going On with My Troublesome Brother?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Peace5, who wants to know about their brother. Peace5 says, He’s almost 23 years old and has been very troublesome lately. I don’t know what’s gotten into him. Even though he has an incurable disease, he stopped taking his medicine, he stopped taking care of himself, and he’s very nasty with me and our whole family, even my 6-year-old son.

The Council suggests trying to find compassion for your brother. Imagine how you’d feel knowing you have an incurable disease. Some people can find a way to work with an incurable disease and have positive thoughts. Others, like your brother, become depressed. Being nasty and stopping his medication is a sign he can’t find hope. He can’t love himself. He’s going through this depression because he’s closed himself off to loving himself and accepting love from others.

We hope your family will be able to find some sort of therapy for your brother that will help with his depression. Once he’s able to have a few positive thoughts, once he’s able to change his lower vibration, hope will come to him and he can have thoughts of helping himself. He can’t cure himself when he’s in the vibration he’s in now. That vibration must be changed.

If it’s at all possible we recommend doing the chakra breathing meditation we recommend in another post. You can do this with him and so can the rest of your family. This meditation will help align his chakras so he can feel better.

Get your brother the first Emmanuel book, by Pat Rodegast and leave it in his room where he can find it, but don’t tell him to read it. Once he’s able to connect with this book and begins to read about depression, illness, dying, and changing his life, it’ll start to put him on the right path.

Peace5 says, My brother takes medical marijuana for his disease, but I believe it’s harming him more than helping him. He’s not interested in anything at all, including looking for a job. All he does is lay around all day long, sleep, and shower four times a day even though he doesn’t go anywhere. He fights with us, curses at us for no apparent reason, and doesn’t speak with us. What’s going on with him and do you think he’ll ever change for the better?

Again The Council asks if you can find it in your heart to feel some compassion for your brother? Try to understand he’s in a difficult place. Can you accept where he is now? Offer him love. Speak with him. Talk with him like he’s a regular person. Don’t tiptoe around him or not say things in front of him. Get excited and share your life with him. Tell him stories. This will be the beginning of your brother feeling cared for.

Don’t force your attention on him, but when you’re around him try to be joyful. If you can be in a joyful vibration it increases the likelihood of your brother becoming joyful. It’s important you’re whole family is very accepting of you’re brother’s situation and condition and forget he has this incurable disease. Forget he’s laying around. Forget he’s doing nothing. Just be nice to your brother and accept who he is.

The Council asks Peace5 to remember you can’t make your brother better. You can be in the right vibration around him. You can speak to him joyfully. Have your brother feel that no matter how he behaves, he’s accepted. Show him by your conversation that you care about him.

At first he probably won’t accept your positive intentions, but we ask you to continue with them anyway. When your brother sees no one is fighting with him, that you accept him, that you allow him to lay around if he wants to, that you don’t preach to him about doing nothing, he’ll eventually get tired of doing these things and begin to raise his vibration and begin to try and find a better way. In doing this and sending him love and light with your thoughts to help him through his difficulties, things will change.

There are many reasons why your brother may have chosen the life he’s currently living. He wants to understand his situation. In the spirit world, where we’ve either experienced a similar life situation in another incarnation, or we’ve seen others go through what we’re going through, we wonder if we can also do that. Can I bring love into that situation? Can I turn that situation around? Do I want to teach things to other people about how to handle this situation and how we all need to reach for love and show love in that situation?

That’s why we choose situations like the one your brother is in. There are many reasons, but the many reasons are unimportant. The main reason is: Am I bringing love into this situation? Am I bringing love and support and positive thoughts to the person who’s going through this difficulty? That’s what’s needed. In spirit we’re all confident we’ll be able to do this. In reality it’s much more difficult. The reason why we came here is to have fun. We came here to face every situation with love. And when you bring love into any situation, it must change.

Bob closes by asking if there’s a possibility of curing this incurable disease. The Council says there’s always this possibility and this, of course, is up to your brother.

Help With Depression

This post answers a question from an anonymous reader who asks The Council for guidance on overcoming depression. They have been using meditation, guided journals, therapy, and medication for years, but just can’t shake this condition. Typically they’re okay when they’re busy, but at other times like now, the situation is unbearably difficult.

The Council suggests when you start feeling depressed you should pay attention to your thoughts. Your thoughts will either lead you into depression or help you come out of it. In your case it’s good to keep as busy as possible. If you’re not working to keep busy, try taking classes, reading, and meditation.

When you meditate, ask to feel your heart energy. This will lift your spirits.

When you don’t feel as good as you’d like, acknowledge this feeling. Then take control by changing your thoughts to better feeling ones. Find something you like about yourself or something you’ve accomplished. Go into old memories that feel good. As you change these heavier thoughts you can begin to change the thoughts that bring on the depression. This will take work on your part, but you’re able to do it.

If you feel some relief from medication, this belief that medication is helping will assist you. You can use medication for a while to lift your energy and still begin to change your thoughts to better feeling ones. This medication would be until you feel better. Once you acknowledge these better feelings you’ll remember them. When you get depressed and change your thoughts and reach for these better feelings, this is how you’ll work your way out of depression.

Anonymous says they understand their negative emotions are creating the depression, but they have difficulty staying positive. The Council says in the beginning you’ll be able to change your thoughts only occasionally, and as you’re able to do this the thoughts will grow and you’ll not have to consistently feel depressed. You are retraining yourself how to focus your attention, and this focus is what you’ll create in your life.

Anonymous asks how they’re able to experience all the good things they’ve created for themselves? The Council says by naming them and being grateful for each one. As you find things to be grateful for, everything begins to change for the better.

The Council’s parting words are to look within yourself for your inner light and meditate on your heart. Picture a little light growing there. This is part of who you are. You are more than your physical body. You are also a wondrous spirit that is light and love. As you look within for this light, you will find it.

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