Confused By Becoming Pregnant with a Friend

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who calls herself ‘S’, who’s sure she’s pregnant again after terminating a pregnancy a year ago. The father is a friend who isn’t interested in dating S, but she feels drawn to him for reasons she’s unable to explain. She doesn’t feel right about ending this friendship and it’s intimate physical benefits, but has felt that she should. Now she’s confused about why she’s created this pregnancy and where things are headed with the father.

The Council says the purpose of S getting pregnant was to give birth to a soul she’s shared other lifetimes with, so they could move forward and create together in this lifetime. If S feels the child isn’t wanted at this particular time, The Council says this reality will change  (the child won’t come full term) and this spirit will return to S in a future pregnancy.

S asks how much power she has in creating an outcome, and how does she know whether to focus on being with the father and child as a family – or not? The Council says if S truly wants to stay with her friend as a family, she can create this with her vibration, her thoughts, and her feelings. Whether S chooses to end her relationship with her friend or not, it’s purpose was to help get her pregnant with this spirit.

S says she thinks the soul she’s pregnant with now is the same soul she was pregnant with a year ago and The Council agrees. And they repeat that if this child isn’t wanted at this particular time, this spirit will return in a future pregnancy.

The Council advises S that she has many options with this pregnancy. She can abort and wait until she meets someone else. She can abort and bring in this spirit at a later date with her friend if she chooses to stay in this relationship. She can have the child now and leave this relationship with her friend if it’s not the right relationship for her. The Council suggests S search her feelings, determine what she wants, and create from there.

Listen to this short but powerful 6-minute session on S’s questions to receive all The Council’s guidance for S and the rest of us.

Can I Have A Long-term Romantic Relationship?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Gabriela, who is nearly 30 years old and has never experienced a long-term romantic relationship, but wants to badly.

Gabriela says she made a spiritual agreement with someone to be her partner in this lifetime, but they didn’t come through. And The Council responds it’s not definite that this person would show up or stay in Gabriela’s life. They say what Gabriela and this person create with their thoughts will turn their relationship one way or another during this lifetime.

The Council says it’s important to understand that you create every situation that happens in your life and that no one can push you in a direction that you, as a spiritual being, don’t want to go in. The purpose of this life is to learn who you are, that you have choices, and that you are a powerful creator.

Gabriela says she’s alone, bitter, and not interested in living anymore. And The Council asks why she’d want to throw away what she’s created because of what she’s experienced at this time. They remind her she’s able to change her circumstances because she’s the creator of her experience, and they advise her to create what she wants.

The Council says if you aren’t in the vibration of love and appreciation for yourself, you aren’t in the vibration of attracting the type of person you’d like to be with. Gabriela set up in spirit that she’d go through many relationships that are not what she desires so she’d have to learn to love herself.

The Council says she has a strong spirit to choose this challenging path. If Gabriela begins to think about her good qualities, begins to love herself, and knows what a loving partner she’s capable of being, they say she will raise her vibration and bring this in.

The Council says we usually have a desire to create things in our lives where we feel we could have done better in our past lives. That’s the purpose of each reality we create. And they add that there’s nothing we create that is wrong. We create it in order to have the experience of it and then improve it.

Ask yourself what loving feelings you can bring to your current experience. When you shift your thoughts to love, your vibration changes and it’s felt by everyone around you. And this is how to get what you want.

Listen to our entire 16-minute session with The Council on Gabriela’s questions (below) to receive their full guidance for her and the rest of us.

Healing Begins

All healing begins
with a change in vibration,
which is caused by a change in thoughts
and a change in beliefs.

All healing starts from within.

The Secret to Manifesting What You Desire


Recently The Council suggested to Cynthia that we write a post to help people who are feeling frustrated in their attempts to use the teachings of the law of attraction and deliberate creation to manifest what they desire in their lives. As two people who have experienced these frustrations, we liked The Council’s idea and during a session on Saturday, May 5, 2012 we asked for their suggestions for this post.


In this section we’ve gathered The Council’s comments from throughout the session that represent for us the essence of their guidance for manifesting what you desire. In the sections that follow, these comments are presented in the context of the entire discussion, to give you a better idea how these ideas developed during the session.

“We see that many [who] are incarnated in your physical world have many questions about manifestation.”

“We see that many are trying to create specific things – whether it is relationships, whether it is material abundance, whether it is health – [and] that there is trouble in creating it.”

“Many do not know what it means when they hear the phrase, ‘line up with what it is you are trying to create.’ And many are out there teaching ‘to match the vibration of what you are trying to create’. Many do not know how to do this because if you’re trying to create something you’ve never had, or never lived, there is a doubt [about] what it would feel like [and] what it would be like to have this thing or situation.

“So how do you create with your thoughts when you do not have the experience of having whatever it is that you are calling forth? And we believe what many are missing… the secret is: you do not have to line up with that particular thought; you do not have to imagine – even though it is wonderful to imagine – what it is that you want, [and] that you already have it.”

“So if you cannot line up with the vibration of what it is that you want because you have no idea what it would look like in your imagination, or what it would feel like, the answer to this – and this is the answer to manifesting – [is] raise your vibration with happy thoughts, that is the answer.

“When you raise your vibration, everything that you have desired – whether you know how to create it or not –will come to you.”

“It is so simple that many will have a hard time believing this, but we can tell you it’s what you might call the shortcut or the easier way to manifesting. It doesn’t have to be so difficult as seeing that you have it, feeling that you have it, [and] what would it be like? Some cannot do this.

“And so just be happy about anything; stay in the feeling of happiness and spirit will bring in everything that it wants.”

The Rest of the Story

If you agree with The Council that their advice may seem overly simplistic and difficult to believe, I [Bob] had the same feelings during the session (as the following details of our discussion indicate) and for at least the next 10 days. But after listening to the recording of the session every day, meditating on it, and giving The Council’s advice a try, I’m beginning to see evidence there’s something to what they’re saying, and we’re both looking forward to seeing what manifests as we practice reaching for happier thoughts and feelings.

Most of our discussion with The Council during this session is presented in the following sections. Headings have been added to organize the material in logical and manageable blocks of thought.

The Influence Our Thoughts & Feelings Have on Other People’s Experience

This post is a response to a question from a reader named Bari who wants to believe her better-feeling thoughts about her boyfriend will create better-feeling experiences of the two of them together, as taught by the spirit guides Abraham. But when her boyfriend repeats behaviors that contrast her better-feeling thoughts, Bari wonders how much of an impact her thoughts and feelings are really able to have on the experience of her boyfriend, or anyone else, and she asks The Council’s opinion on this.

This post is the third in a series based on comments from The Council during a single session on Sunday, April 15, 2012 to answer three thought-provoking questions from Bari and Rachael. Reincarnation and past lives were the subjects of the first post, and the second post, in this series.

Helping Others with Our Thoughts

Part way through reading Bari’s second question, The Council offered the following initial comments:

“In the non-physical it is sometimes planned: ‘At some point in my life I will meet you on Earth in the physical. And if I am going through something difficult and I can’t remember who I really am, will you remind me by your thoughts? By your thoughts I will feel that energetic change. I will feel the positive vibration that you are thinking.’ And then, of course, it is up to the [other] person to tune into it and expand with it.

“And so your thoughts go out, whether positive or negative. And the soul you are working with or you are in partnership with feels that vibration.

“And so if they are depressed or they are not accomplishing what they want to accomplish, your positive thought vibration is there and it sort of kick-starts them, but you can not control what they do.

“It’s [as if] you hold the light; you hold the remembrance of who they really are for them. And then, if they allow it, they will feel that and they will move forward.

“But when you have positive thoughts or negative [thoughts] about someone, in your experience that’s how you will experience them. Is that clear?”

June 22, 2011 Thought for the Day

When you worry about people you care about,
Others will tell you this is understandable.

We say: Think of the people you care about
As you would like them to be,
And then feel the joy and relief
These thoughts bring.

Your thoughts and imagination
Are like watching a wonderful black and white movie.

Now if you add your feelings,
Ta da! You’ve got Technicolor.

And as you continue to practice your thoughts, imagination, and feelings,
Very soon you’ll have 3-D
And you’ll be living the movie you’re creating.
