How Can I Support Myself And Find An Inexpensive Apartment?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who’s looking for their advice.

Anon: The past two decades have been difficult. I found it difficult to get work and somewhere to live. I originally wanted to be a musician, and I’ve been trying to teach and write to create a secure foundation from which I could make music my main source of income. But the foundation and the music career never came.

Council: Your interest in music comes from another lifetime. It was something you enjoyed, but you didn’t plan in this lifetime to make music your source of income. It was supposed to be a hobby and something you did on the side that you enjoyed. But somehow, unconsciously, the memories are there of how much you enjoyed it before, and so liking that feeling you stayed with it. This particular lifetime we think music isn’t the path you’re ready to go on at this moment.

Anon: The way my work is done changed after the 2008 financial crisis and I find myself doing an awful lot of unpaid work, applying for jobs, funding, gigs, practicing, self-promoting, and doing the mandatory unpaid work that comes with self-employment.

Council: That’s fine if you enjoy doing unpaid work. If not, what else have you done to provide for yourself? What sort of work have you come up with to support your style of living, to be comfortable with where you are and who you’re with, and a way to enjoy what you’re doing? Have you looked in these other areas?

Anon: Renting has been unstable and I’ve lived in 13 places over the last 20 years. At one point I got ill, was made homeless, and ended up in subsidized housing. I have no family or partner, This has been the most security and stability I’ve ever had and I’ve been so grateful.

Council: Abandonment is part of your lesson. And again we ask you, what are you doing to provide for yourself now, moving around so much and seeing how the music work isn’t supporting you? What are you looking towards?

Anon: It’s been wonderful living here. Sadly the building is being demolished and I’ll get notice to move out soon.

Council: Do you realize you are the creator. Look how you’re creating your life differently from what you desire. Instead of creating going into music, you’re creating that you’re losing places where you live and you’re doing unpaid work. You’re creating it this way to get you to turn towards anything else because it will feed into your having confidence in yourself no matter what you do. This is also part of what you’re trying to learn.

Try anything. You’ll find you enjoy learning something new. You’re creating a way where the music isn’t working for you right now. You must learn to go in another direction. What is it that you love? What is it that would be easy for you to do to support yourself? We ask you to ask yourself these questions.

Anon: I’ve tried to increase my job search to earn enough money to rent an apartment locally like the one I currently live in, but I had to leave one job because I was physically attacked, and I was bullied out of another job.

Council: Again, look at what you’re creating.

Anon: I should be putting in as many job applications as I can to insure my security, but I’m drained and I can’t face doing anymore unpaid work.

Council: Again, look at what you’re creating. You know you should be increasing your job research, but you’re drained. And you’ll stay getting drained until you look in another direction. All the signs are there for you. You’re on Earth to have fun, to create different parts of your life, but you’re holding so tightly onto the subconscious memories you had from a time before where you were able to live by your music.

You wanted to come in and experience joy with your music, but also to learn so much more about yourself. Trust yourself. Try something different. And when you become confident in yourself, more and more things will change for you. Things will become easier for you. And this may lead you back to your music, but first you must find the confidence and let go of the fear of trying to support yourself another way.

Anon: Rents have skyrocketed and I’m scared I’ll have to move away from my treasured local support network I spent my adult life cultivating, and the musicians, music, and culture of the city I’ve grown up in and love so much. These are my lifeline.

Council: Once again, that’s why you’re creating your life in a way where you have to let go of this lifeline to see what else is in store for you and to see what you can create, like new friends, a new career, a new place to live. These are beautiful things that await you if you do the mental work first. What else would you like to do?

See yourself doing it, feeling good, feeling relaxed, and increasing the way you live. Let go of the fear. Let go of what’s old. We see you’re making things end because you want to have a new beginning. How exciting this is.

Anon: I love my home so much and I’m already grieving its loss. I’m scared I won’t find something this wonderful, secure, and affordable in this location where I can live on my own.

Council: Did it ever occur to you that you may not have to be in your current location, and that you’re creating your life in such a way that you’ll find a new location?

Anon: I’d love to hear your advice.

Council: Meditate. See what you want. Visualize it. Forget creating with the music for now. You’ll have it later on. See what else you’re capable of doing.

Anon: How can I break out of this cycle?

Council: Meditate. Visualize. Pretend. Find joy in doing anything else. Be like a young child that has dreams of becoming a cowboy, or a bull fighter, or anything else. Play with it and you’ll bring something new into your life.

Anon: Can spirit show me what’s next for me in terms of where I’ll be living?

Council: We can’t show you what you’re going to create. It’s all up to you. We’ll see it when you see it.

Anon: How do I find something as wonderful as where I am? How can I stay in my home town without sharing a flat? I’m in my forties now and I don’t think I can do that anymore.

Council: Look for other employment. Start there.

Anon: With the persistent employment and income insecurity taking its toll, I’ve also lost my love of practicing and writing music.

Council: There you go. You’re creating it and you’re seeing it. It’s wonderful that you’re seeing that you lost your love for music. You’re exactly on the path you wish to be on. There’s nothing to be upset about.

What you need to do is flow with your situation. There’s something else. What is it? Call it to yourself. Pretend. Visualize you can do this and you’ll create more joy in your life. You’ll create a career. You’ll create a partner. You’ll create somewhere wonderful to live. See it. See all these things and you’ll find yourself moving closer and closer to that path.

Anon: And I’d love to know how I can get the music back.

Council: Find yourself first. Try something different. Try many different things and your love of music will return. But don’t be afraid to go in different directions.

How Can I Overcome Authority Problems With My Students?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Christea17, who works as a teacher who’s having some difficulty with her students. Some of them are very disrespectful, lack interest in learning, and it’s difficult to teach them anything. Unfortunately I feel I lack the authority, strength, and energy I need to change the atmosphere in my classes.

The Council says this feeling of lack is exactly where the problem comes from. If you don’t believe in yourself and what you’re able to accomplish, you won’t be able to manifest what you desire into your reality. What you need to do is start within yourself to be aware of what you want to accomplish. Be aware of the training you have and that you know how to handle this situation.

In your current lifetime you wanted to work with very young children. If possible, we suggest you find a position where you’re working with very young children, even what’s considered daycare, and start there. Build trust in what you have to offer to these children and it will be accepted.

Christea says she doesn’t know how to deal with unpleasant situations. I like teaching, but rarely do I feel like I can teach my students something. Sometimes it’s really depressing what’s going on in my classes. The Council points out that you don’t know if you have the ability to teach and if these children could be interested. There’s so much doubt in your thoughts and your beliefs that at this particular time this teaching isn’t something that will work for you until you work on yourself.

In the beginning, when you get a new class to take care of, show an interest in each child. Instead of going right into the educational requirements, express to these children that you’d like to know all about them. One at a time, have them tell you something about themselves and see if you can connect with that. See if you can say something like, I went through that also, or that’s funny, or look how you turned the situation around and you went through it. What are your interests? Ask your students if they could be in a classroom and could choose what you wanted to learn about, what would that be?

Get more of an idea from the children what they want. The students would begin to see you as someone who’s interested in them, and then share part of your path. What was your childhood like? What do you go through now? Ask them about their interests. This is very important. The way the educational system is now isn’t interesting to most children.

Find ways to get the children’s interest and then teach them a little about what they want. For an hour in the morning you can take one child and talk about what they’re interested in, and tell them as much as you know about that subject. After that you can go into what they need to learn as far as the education system is concerned. The next day pick another child. You can ask them if they could learn anything, what would that be? Always show the children you’re interested in what they want.

The Council says there’s a past life connection in the early 1700s where you were part of a group of children that lived in the same area and had to work to help their family exist, grow food, and make clothing. There was always the thought of going to a proper school, learning in large groups, and sharing knowledge, but this wasn’t possible in that particular life. In your current life you’ve created a situation where you not only want to learn, but you also want to teach. Your doubt of how to do this and how to handle unruly children is part of the lesson you’ve brought into this lifetime.

The easiest way to teach these children is to find things they’re interested in, and show you have an interest in them as people. Always ask them what they want to learn. If they could teach this class, what would they want to learn? And when they act unruly or give you silly answers you can laugh with them and tell them it’s funny, but bring the conversation around to what they’d do if they were the teacher. Get their minds going by imagining what they’d do if they were in charge. You’ll see a big difference. If you can’t handle this right now, we advise you to try and work with smaller and younger groups until you feel more confident. This confidence must come through you first.

Christea17 says, I wish I knew how to deal with these situations better and how to interact more positively with my students. The Council advises Christea17 to be a regular person. Show interest in your students. Tell them about yourself. This will change the atmosphere.

The Council adds that there’s a little exercise you can do. Sit in front of the classroom before you start your lessons. Picture a beautiful green energy in your heart. If there are twenty people in your class, send out twenty ropes of energy from your heart, one to each child in the room. See that rope of green energy going into them, circling around, and coming back to you. Make this connection and this will also help. Everything begins with energy first. The green light energy is healing, it’s love, and it works with the heart.

The Council closes by wishing everyone peace, love, and light. They say have fun on your path. Always look for the fun. The happiness will bring in everything you wish to create, whether you know what it is now or not. Your higher self knows. And when you stay happy it can bring it in.

How Can I Find Out What Star Family I Come From?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Pedro. He says for the last few days I’m finding evidence I might be a Starseed. The Council says the time is right. If this evidence makes things clearer, then you’re ready to explore this. You’ve created doubt because you wanted to find a way to find the connection, not from someone pointing it out to you, but for you to discover this connection on your own.

Pedro says, I’d like The Council to tell me what I have to do to be completely clear about my origins, which constellation I came from, and how I can keep in contact with my star family. The Council says the easiest way to begin this project is to do lots of research. On the internet you can read about different star systems and constellations. You can also read books. Keep reading until you feel a connection to something. You’ll be drawn to the constellation and your star family. Discover how the entities lived in each star system, what they’re doing now, and what they can offer you. Does it feel familiar? Does it make you feel a connection?

Visit museums and planetariums. Do whatever you can to bring this thought of your origins and your star family to your seventh chakra where your purpose in life resides. You’ll see why you’re here and why you want to discover this now. The best way to do this is through meditation. If you don’t meditate, then before you go to bed you can ask for dreams and you can imagine what it would be like to understand where you came from and what it’s like to connect with your star family.

There are sights on the internet that have characteristics of each star system and why they’re here now. See if you fit any of these descriptions. The wonderful thing about this is that you’re doing it in a way that you’ll discover it so there won’t be any doubts. That’s what this life is about for you. You wanted to discover answers. You wanted to go forward. And you wanted to know the way to do this. That’s what’s coming up for you now.

Pedro says, My spiritual journey is only the beginning. I don’t have any spiritual practices. I don’t know how to meditate, and I fear being caught in deceiving traps by evil spirits while meditating or trying to channel, since this almost happened to me before. The Council asks, Why do you feel you can be trapped by evil spirits? This won’t happen unless you create it, unless you focus on it, unless you have such a fear about it that you won’t learn to meditate, you won’t allow yourself to learn about energy, spirits, or guides who will come in and work with you. Anyone who meditates, or wants to go beyond this dimension to find answers, always surround yourself with the beautiful white light and there will be no need to worry about evil spirits.

We enjoyed these questions and we wish everyone joy on their path. All the answers you’re looking for are within you. It’s important to trust and believe in yourself. Know that you are spirits that have had many lifetimes, that have lived in many dimensions, and in many areas that aren’t in your reality. When you begin to ask the questions, you’ll find the answers. You’ll remember past lives here, past lives in other star systems, and past lives that take you in between your realities.

There’s so much out there. It’s important for you to remember first and foremost to start believing you are more than your human body that you’re traveling around in. You are a spirit with great power. You’re the creator of your reality. Nothing is beyond your reach. Focus on who you truly are. Visualize what you’d look like as a spirit, and feel that. Feel your heart when you visualize this and all the connections, all the help you need, and all the growth and expansion you need will come.

Please Help Me Heal My Trust Issues with Women

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Clare, who is asking for help with her trust issues with women. Clare says, As far as I can remember I’ve never felt full trust in women. It’s as if I know they’ll betray me or hurt me. I had some close friends, but the relationships always ended without an explanation. What happened that I can’t have closer and beautiful relationships with women?

The Council says there’s one lifetime where you had a twin sister who received all your parents’ attention. She was a bright and beautiful child and you were in her shadow. In that life you always felt less than everyone else. There were many other lives where you chose to have lessons about trust, about being your own individual, and about believing in yourself.

There was also a life where a very good friend that you’d trusted, died from a disease. With that woman taken from you, there was always the fear of other friendships and close people in your family, particularly women, would be taken from you.

There were two other lives where you wanted to experience the other end of the coin and you became very competitive. You enjoyed taking men away from the women they were with, which made you feel powerful. There were times where you had other people get in trouble for things you did. This isn’t anything for you to feel guilty about. It was just the experience you needed. In your current life you’re trying to bring in a lot of women to heal all those lifetimes where there were trust issues, where there was hurt that came from family and friends, and where there were abandonment issues.

Clare asks, Is there something I can learn from this? The Council says to first acknowledge that this is something you’re trying to heal in your current lifetime. It started from one particular experience with parents, but it continues in one form or another in other lives where you didn’t understand because you felt hurt when women were taken away from you. And then you decided to be what you’d consider the evil person and cause trouble for others. That was just the experience that you, in spirit, wanted. In your current life it’s good for you to connect and realize it’s just a healing that you’re looking for with women.

You created a space in your life where this doesn’t happen for a time, there are trust issues with women, and relationships with women don’t work out. In going through this you learn how other people in your past lives felt when you betrayed them, when you caused trouble for them, or when you took a loved one away from them. Just by understanding these things and realizing that was then, this is now, you’re ready to heal this.

Work on one relationship at a time. Don’t feel desperate. Don’t doubt it will work. Don’t go into fear. Just let the relationship flow. Concentrate on how you want each and every relationship to be. Go into detail about what you want. Think about how you’d like each relationship to develop. With the ease and the love inside of you and the pride you get from trying to heal this, things can begin to change.

Clare says, I’m asking for advice because I want good friendships. The Council says that’s very possible in your current lifetime. Remember that you are the creator. When you connect all those lifetimes, and you realize why you’re going through all this now, and that this is a healing process, this will make things much easier.

The Council says don’t wait for your situation to explode. Just flow with it. Meditation would be a great help. Even if it’s sitting in a chair for five minutes, just resting, thinking loving thoughts, thinking about anything that would make you happy, thinking about future goals, and thinking about things you’d like in your life and bring you joy.

Is Leaving My Current Job Advisable Now?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, MindfulLoving, whos says that due to the current COVID crisis I’ve begun having a lot of anxiety issues related to job stress. I also feel restless and can’t sleep at night because of stress and anxiety.

The Council says many, many people are under stress from COVID. Understand that everyone has agreed in spirit to experience this. How you handle it is your choice. You can meditate, pray, and think better feeling thoughts about not going into the panic and anxiety or let this overtake you. The #1 thing to understand is that you called in COVID to see how you’d handle it, how you’d change your thoughts and trust more, believe, and visualize things getting better.

MindfulLoving says they’re worried they’ll start having panic attacks if the situation continues. The Council says the situation doesn’t matter. What matters is how you handle any situation. Whether it’s COVID, loss of family or friends, or loss of a career you want, what you chose to experience was how you’re going to handle the situation. When things get hard to handle, will you stop and examine it and think of things that make you feel better, and change the direction of your thoughts and energy?

MindfulLoving says they have a young child and I think I’m unable to manage everything at the present time. The Council says you can manage it all. It’s your focus that will determine what you can handle.

MindfulLoving says to cope with the stress they’ve begun reading books about meditation and mindfulness. I also read a lot about stock trading and entrepreneurship. I want to be financially independent and I have some savings, but not a lot. Can The Council guide me if leaving my current job would be advisable? The Council says at this moment it’s not advisable to leave your job. Treat your job as something that’s there to help you during this time. Try not to stress about your job. Do what you can.

MindfulLoving asks The Council if the path of entrepreneurship is for me and will I succeed in this? The Council says you’ll only succeed if you change your thoughts about how you look at your situation. It’s your wish to find more positive reactions to everything that happens. When you can get hold of this, in the future you’ll succeed in what you choose.

MindfulLoving asks what field should I be in and when should I make the switch? The Council says time-wise we always say it’s up to you how you manage to focus on what you want and to focus on the positive. Do the inner work of visualizing everything being okay. This will happen as you practice your positive thoughts and visualizations. Then you’ll get more ideas about what you want to do and the kind of work you want.

When you came into this reality you mentioned you wanted to teach others. Whatever field you go into, you’d learn it and then pass the information on and make it easier for other people. Don’t stress so much about what field you want to go into.

Focus on yourself and know if you believe you can take care of your child, you will. If you believe you can’t take care of your child, you won’t be able to. Work on your beliefs. If you believe you can handle this job, not forever but for a time, and then it’ll change and something better will come along. You’ll bring this in. It’s what you choose to focus on daily that matters.

Can I Trust a Colleague Who’s Been Excluding Me From Projects?

This post answers questions for The Council from an anonymous reader who has a work colleague who recently began excluding them from work projects they expected to be part of. They ask The Council’s advice if this colleague is someone I can still trust.

The Council says this person appears to go through periods of being for you and then against you, which has to do with emotions this person is working through from other times. It’s okay to remain acquainted with this person, but because of what they’re going through it’s unwise to share private emotional situations that come up in your life.

At this time, movement is necessary. What you’ve planned to experience at work hasn’t gone quite in the direction you planned and it’s time to begin looking for another place of employment. The timing is very good for this.

The anonymous reader says they received a job offer recently, but didn’t take it and now I’m having second thoughts. The Council advises if this position remains available to see if they can still get it. If it’s not available, start looking in other areas for work. And when you get an offer that feels good to you, which you will, even if it’s scary to make a change, we suggest you move forward with this. There’s a whole new path available for you. New people will come into your life and there will be new lessons to learn. This will be a great learning time for you.

The Council suggests this person look for any position that has to do with movement, either moving material or people around, or perhaps moving temporarily from one place to another. The important thing for you right now is to meet many new people and develop new friendships. This is part of what’s been set up for you. Movement is needed in your energetic field to create what you want.

Am I On the Right Track with My New Relationship?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Sarah, who says she’d like to understand where she’s at with her spiritual development and current events in her life. Sarah says she’s done a lot of work on herself and feels very connected to herself and spirit. But she’s always concerned she’s coming from her ego, fooling herself, and making choices for the wrong reasons.

The Council asks Sarah if her concern is coming from her head or her heart. If you truly believe you’ve done a lot of work on yourself and you’re growing, your doubting would be an old pattern you’re here to learn about and let go of. When you need to make a decision get out of your head and into your heart, ask the question, then go into your solar plexus and see how you feel. Your higher self will communicate to you through the way your feel in your solar plexus. Was your doubting and the idea of being in your ego taught to you by someone? Why aren’t you relaxed enough to think, I’ve made a change and learned different things. It’s time for you to come to a place of trust and being at peace within yourself.

Sarah says a large change may be coming into her life due to a recent serendipitous meeting. She had feelings of home and recognition when she met this person although they’re very different. Creating a relationship will have many obstacles and she’s curious what’s happening here. Does she feel so sure about this person because the relationship is pre-planned?

The Council says the situation involves two spirits recognizing each other. That’s the familiar feeling. It was pre-planned to meet each other, to come into each other’s life and be helpful, but it wasn’t pre-planned to be a romantic relationship. A romance is still possible if you both wish to take your relationship in this direction. But The Council repeats what was pre-planned was to come into each other’s lives and be helpful to one another. You will recognize each other by a familiar deja-vu feeling. Sarah says she can’t see a way she’s fooling herself, but is she. The Council replies, not at all.

Sarah says she feels confident she wants to create a relationship with this person, but it’s going to be a little daunting due to the distance involved. She asks if they’re on the right track and if these obstacles will resolve themselves? The Council says you’re on the right track by meeting and recognizing a familiar feeling. In your friendship see where this takes you. What do you bring to each other? What are you learning? Then see if both of you want more than the friendship, or is it just a coming together to learn about life.

Your relationship will be what you want it to be, but it’s necessary for both of you to do the inner work. And it’s necessary, as you create whatever kind of friendship or relationship you desire, to come from the vibration of joy, of happiness, of positively knowing you can have whatever you desire by visualizing it. Go slowly with this relationship and enjoy what you have together.

You are on your path and will find your way by being excited you’re in this reality. And no matter what you created, whether it’s something to be grateful for or if it’s challenging, it’s all wanted and you’ll find your way through it and grow. Help will be there. You’ll love yourself and you’ll go on.

Listen to the entire 6-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Sarah and the rest of us. And let us know what you feel about the session, or feel free to ask an unrelated question.

Who Am I? Where Am I From? And What Is My Purpose?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Kristie, who starts by asking, who am I and where am I from?

The Council says Kristie is a wonderful spirit made of love and light who’s chosen a journey into a reality she wishes to create. You have a physical body to get around in and you create a personality in this reality. When you return to spirit at the end of your physical life, the body falls away and the personality stays with you so you can learn from it and share what you’ve learned with other spirits.

The Council says you’re from the great source; the energy that manifests into many things. You’re from many planets and many lifetimes. You’re part of the whole and you’re never alone. And you are part of the collective unconscious from spirit into this humanity.

Kristie asks if she’s found her mission in life yet. The Council says your true mission is to take whatever situation you find yourself in and make it happy. When you focus on being happy the vibration within you changes, the vibration around you changes, and you bring this vibration into this whole reality.

The Council says at one point before coming into this reality it was important for Kristie to have family and to learn how to understand people with difficulties. You wanted to create difficulties in trusting and believing in people to inspire the souls around you to understand you better. Even though you have doubts about how you’re treated and what people say about you, you wanted to take the chance and reach out to other people beyond these doubts and trust issues, even if some of these people don’t act in a way you appreciate or show you understanding.

If Kristie is unable to reach beyond her doubts and help others, then she’ll bring in the lesson of loneliness to deal with. Maybe she wouldn’t have many friends or not be close to her family. What would life be like when you feel lonely? And as you learn from this lesson, do you want to change it? Or do you want to continue on the path of loneliness for the rest of this lifetime to learn more from this and understand other people who are introverted and lonely?

There are many lessons and many obstacles that you planned so you could transform them and take a leap up the spiritual ladder and bring more love into yourself.

You wanted to learn about trust and The Council asks Kristie to look at these trust issues in her life. Have you learned to trust people? Are you afraid of what people say? or wonder if they’re honest? or if they’ll treat you right? You wanted to get past these trust issues so you could reach out and be there for other people.

Kristie was also very interested in history in her past lives and The Council says if she hasn’t looked into this by now, they suggest she read books and watch movies on ancient civilizations.  She’ll derive a lot of happiness from this. You’ll remember things from some of your past lives, and some of this research will stimulate your memory and give you ideas of what directions you wish to go in now.

Kristie asks when she’ll begin to achieve her life purpose. The Council says she’ll begin right now because she has enough information from this post to start looking at how she’s lived her life, how she’s handled things, and the direction she wanted her life to go.

Kristie says today was a particularly rough and uncomfortable day. The Council says when you find you’re in one of these rough days, recognize that you’ve created this situation and ask yourself what you’re learning from it? What is it trying to teach you? What’s your feeling about it? Does it remind you of something? What’s the opposite of this feeling and then focus on that when you’re depressed or you’re having a difficult day. Identify your thoughts and feelings and then reach for a lighter thought.

The Council realizes it’s difficult to choose loving thoughts when you’re feeling down. Once you can identify the feeling and reach for its opposite, imagine what it would be like to think and feel better. This can shift your perspective and bring in love.

The Council closes by saying the peace Kristie is looking for is within her. It’s her job to look for it, find it, and bring it out. And they remind her again she’s the love and light of her spirit.

What Are My Son’s Gifts, and What Past Lives Do We Share?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader who goes by the name, LearningSoulSite, who asks how she can help her 5 year old son achieve his potential.

The Council says one of the things they hope LearningSoulSite is doing is reading her son stories and then ask him to make up stories to tell her. He’ll have a great desire to write and the storytelling will help this. He’ll also like to perform in front of others so getting him to speak will encourage him in this area.

LearningSoulSite asks about past lives she and her son or family members may have shared, and if he’s trying to work out something in this lifetime she asks how she can make things easier for him. The Council says she can’t ease anything that needs to be healed between other people.

LearningSoulSite and her son were soldiers and close comrades in World War I and they had a lot of trust in each other in that lifetime. It will be very helpful for her to be as honest with her son as possible and teach him what trust really is. This will bring the bond from the lifetime in WWI to the surface in this lifetime and she’ll be able to have a very close relationship with her son.

The Council says it’s a good idea to continuously praise all children. When they tell you stories that seem silly, ask for more information rather than putting then down and laughing at them. Always show interest in what your son tells you and then share a little of your thoughts and dreams. The more stories you can tell your son the better it will be. You are the teacher and the storyteller while your son is young, and when he’s older you’ll exchange roles and you’ll help him in a career if he continues to choose storytelling as an avocation. And he can be very successful in this career.

The Council says there was also a lifetime in Japan where her son was her father and they fished together a lot and sold the fish in the village. It was a quiet life and when they come together they want to bring in the energy of peace, learning, and trust.

Listen to the entire 5-minute audio recording of our session with The Council (below) to hear the answer to all LearningSoulSite’s questions, and let us know what you feel about it.

Who Was I In Another Lifetime?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Lancey, who simply asks, who was I in another lifetime?

The Council says in England in the early 1900s Lancey was a nanny who wasn’t married and didn’t have any family. Lancey’s current lifetime is affected by this past life in the sense that in this lifetime she wants to have a family and relationships.

There is also an issue of not trusting in that past life which Lancey carries into her current life. In her current life she wants to learn to relax and trust, to be part of a couple, and to be part of a large family.

Prior to that lifetime as a nanny, Lancey was a sailor going from America to England and working on the docks. Again she had no family in that lifetime, and this also stimulates her desire in her current lifetime to be part of a family.

These past lifetimes influence Lancey’s current lifetime toward being a homebody who is like the head of a family, and experiencing a lot of emotional love, trust, and closeness which wasn’t in these two earlier lives that we mention.

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

Can You Experience Your Twin Flame’s Emotions Before You Meet?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Brooke, who’s in a relationship with her twin flame and she asks if you can experience strong emotions from your twin flame before you even meet them.

The Council begins by saying that a twin flame is a spirit you’ve worked with together in many lifetimes. The Council says you can recognize your twin flame by having a lot in common and that’s the case with Brooke and her partner.

The Council says Brooke and her partner aren’t the only ones to set up a reality where they’ll work with a twin flame. When it’s important for you and your partner to learn something together, a way is created for you to recognize each other. You truly begin to listen to what the other spirit is saying so you can learn from it and bring it into your reality. And as Brooke learns things she can share this and the two of them will grow.

You’re working together, and sometimes it’s on many different lessons you wish to go through, but you need someone to help you go through it, and this is why you’ve created a twin soul. There’s an agreement between the two of you to come together at a certain stage in your lives and you’ll recognize each other by an experience you’re both going through. In your case there are childhood issues you both went through. This brought you together and the learning can last an entire lifetime.

The twin flame situation touches on the lesson of love and trust, and knowing we’re not alone. What you face isn’t a horrible punishment, but it’s what you’ve created to learn from. There’s comfort in knowing someone else has gone through the same thing. You aren’t a bad person if you have a hard time in one area or another. Someone else is sharing this experience and going through it.

There’s a safety in working together with another spirit. The Council advises that whatever you work on or try to understand, put joy into it. Have gratitude for having met and recognized each other, and you’re evolved enough to know that twin flames exist.

Brooke finishes by asking The Council if her partner could have been experiencing her traumatic childhood and she experienced his through their twin flame connection long before they met? And The Council simply says, “Yes.”

Why Do Animals Have to Suffer and How Can We Stop Their Pain?

This post answers questions for The Council from a woman named, Violet, who asks why animals have to suffer so much at the hands of humans, and how can we globally stop animal pain?

The Council says it was never planned that animals would come into our reality and suffer. Animals carry the energy of love and are here to teach love, particularly at this time where many people have taken a negative path. The animal was created to come into this reality and help all these people by teaching them loyalty and trust.

On a worldly scale in places that have war and destruction, the animals are there to carry the energy of love, to give people something to care about, and to teach compassion, if not for other people then for the animals.

The Council says animals don’t have to suffer, but they come in contact with people who are abusive and most of these animals are here to teach abusive people to change, or to help other people stop this abuse by their compassion and love for these animals.

Violet asks how we can globally stop the pain these animals experience, and The Council says, not with protests and fighting. The way to stop animal suffering is by doing more of what you can for them. Examples include supporting groups that try to save animals, perhaps have an animal or two to take care of, and support zoos, rescues, and places that give animals homes and new beginnings. As you take these steps, the vibration of animal caring and loving expands and will reach worldwide.

Just by caring enough and taking an action, no matter how small, you’re helping these animals create the environment they’re here to experience. When an abandoned animal is given a new home and shown love, their vibration and love grows. And it grows for the people that are caring for these animals, and this touches all people in this reality.

The first step is to acknowledge the suffering of the animals, but not to focus on the suffering. Focus instead on the steps you can take to change the suffering. In your mind send the vibration of love to all animals. This little bit can begin the change toward stopping hunting of endangered species, and keeping our environment as close to nature as possible.

Listen to our 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Violet and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Do I Share a Past Life with My Sister-In-Law?

This post answers a question for The Council from a reader named, Susan, who has a sister-in-law who sometimes becomes very controlling and is currently causing problems for Susan and her younger brother. Susan would like to know if she shares a past life with this sister-in-law.

The Council says the life they see that’s affecting Susan’s current life is a lifetime she and her sister-in-law shared back in Ireland. In that lifetime your sister-in-law was your very controlling father and you and your many brothers and sisters had to follow your father’s orders. You weren’t allowed out with people your father didn’t know. You weren’t allowed to travel anywhere. And you weren’t allowed to hang out with people who didn’t live in your village.

The Council says they see where you may  believe your sister-in-law is being difficult, but this is her way of trying to be in control of what goes on. She believes her way is the best way and she has good intentions behind her controlling behavior.

In your current lifetime you came together with your sister-in-law to experience more freedom, a greater ability to communicate your ideas, and to be together without the controlling atmosphere where your sister-in-law was in charge. Your sister-in-law needs to learn trust, acceptance, and allow you to be who you are. You need to find the freedom to speak up and be who you planned to be.

You aren’t the child in your current relationship and your sister-in-law isn’t your father. You came together as peers to be able to communicate without fear.

Now that you have this information you can understand why your sister-in-law is the way she is. Try to let your sister-in-law have her opinion, but also stress your own opinion. Learn to speak up and have confidence in yourself. You’re not trapped under the old rules of your previous life in Ireland.

If you have difficulty speaking up to your sister-in-law at this time, begin to talk about your ideas, opinions, and how you feel about things to friends and family members. You can gradually work your way up to your sister-in-law.

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

Trusting Your Way to a Romantic Relationship

This post answers a follow-up question for The Council from a woman named Nina. We posted The Council’s response to her previous question in our post, How Can I Have a Romantic Relationship?

Nina says she’s been scared and distrustful as long as she can remember. She now has improved relationships with friends and family, but she doesn’t have any luck with romantic relationships.

The Council says it’s good to open up with friends and family first, and as she sees success in these relationships they ask her to stretch and begin to trust other people around her. Then when she’s in a place of comfort within herself she may look forward to finding a partner in a romantic relationship. The trust issues run very deep for Nina and it’s safer for her to build her relationships slowly at first with family and friends.

Nina asks The Council if something happened in a previous lifetime that’s influencing the difficulty she has trusting people today?

As a child in England in the 1800s she was abandoned and has trust issues from this experience. In a different lifetime she was sold to another family because her birth family wasn’t able to provide for her. And during the Holocaust Nina was put in a concentration camp and lost her family. In each of these lifetimes there’s an issue of abandonment and not trusting those around her.

The Council says Nina is trying to heal these three previous lifetimes in her current life. The situations she’s created in this lifetime aren’t as horrible as the ones she’s come through in other lifetimes. She’s decided in her current lifetime to work on trust issues with family and friends and without being abandoned or something horrible happening to her. Because Nina has made her experience lighter in her current lifetime, in spirit she felt she was able to handle these situations, change them, grow, and trust people.

The Council reiterates that as Nina is able to realize she’s safe with family, close friends, work colleagues, and new people she meets, then she’ll be able to bring in the right sort of romantic partner for herself. And The Council expresses confidence that Nina will be able to do this.

Listen to our entire 4-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for Nina and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

Opening to the Love All Around

This post is inspired by questions from a reader who goes by the initials, PE, who asks The Council how they can give and receive love. PE says they are very closed and there’s a lot of grief in their heart.

The Council says they see the grief in PE’s heart and they recommend working on the heart chakra by sitting a few moments twice each day and picturing a little flame in the heart area. Picture this flame getting bigger and bigger and eventually tuning in to what this increasingly larger flame feels like. This will begin to open your heart.

PE says they struggle with being warm and open with people and this makes them feel lonely and friendless. The Council says PE has abandonment and trust issues and there was a lot of hurt, grief, and sadness from past experiences and past lives. In this lifetime they made a decision to turn these emotions around and feel love and trust again, but it is difficult to do this quickly when you have gone through as much as PE has.

The Council says if PE is uncomfortable giving and receiving love and trusting people, then buy a beautiful plant to take care of. Play music for this plant, water it, sing to it. Show kindness and love to this plant. After you’ve done this for a while perhaps you can have a favorite tree that you can visit every day. Sit with this tree, talk to it, feel the energy the tree gives back to you. Then you can get an animal to express love to. Slowly you’ll begin to trust and let the energy of love in.

PE has heard there are guides and angels around us, but she doesn’t feel their presence and says they don’t know how to connect to it. The Council says PE would connect by doing the exercise with the light in the heart. As you show love to anything – the plant, the tree, the animal – you open your heart and you will begin to feel this connection.

PE says there’s a deep and painful emptiness in their heart, but they really want some kind of connection with other people. PE adds that sometimes they cry for no apparent reason because of so much sadness in their heart that they are unable to explain.

The Council says just by asking this question, PE is in the part of their path where they’ve discovered what they want – the connection with other people and the healing of their heart – so they are exactly where they need to be. And if they follow the steps The Council has suggested, their life will begin to change.

The Council says the vibration you carry attracts people that are a match to that vibration. With a heavy heart, and grief, and sadness, and not trusting, it’s more difficult to bring in the more trusting and gentle souls. As PE does this daily meditation on the heart, they will begin to accept love from the people that want to show it to them, and they will attract more of the kind, loving people they need to help them along their path.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for PE and the rest of us, and let us know your feelings.

Why Did I Get Pregnant and What Can It Teach Me?

This post is inspired by a question from a reader who uses the name Bundle of Emotions. She recently found out she was pregnant and immediately knew she would terminate this pregnancy. She says her spirit guides previously told her if she continued to be intimate with her partner, she’d get pregnant and end the pregnancy, and this is what happened. And The Council suggests the reason for this pregnancy is that she planned it in spirit.

While Bundle says she feels overwhelmed with shame about her decision to abort, she also feels relief knowing her decision is right for her. And the more she understands a reader named Beth’s questions and answers from one of our earlier posts, the less guilty she feels.

Part of the reason for this pregnancy was to connect with her higher self, and The Council feels she’s done this. Bundle wanted to go through this experience no matter what the people around her said or expected from her. The Council advises her to stay with this good feeling about terminating the pregnancy rather than the feeling of shame. And they ask her how she could feel ashamed of something she planned to experience in the first place.

The Council asks Bundle to think about how she plans to use this experience as she goes through others where she has decisions to make. They advise her to remember the feeling of making a correct decision, believing in what she desires to create, and believing in the direction she wants to take her life. The experience of this pregnancy is a catalyst to remind Bundle of these feelings.

The Council says if Bundle begins to meditate, or just sits quietly and speaks with her higher self so she can be guided daily, she’ll experience additional desirable adventures. And knowing she’s connecting with her higher self and moving forward with what she wants to experience, she will open to intuitive feelings about the people around her and herself.

You wanted to experience the part of yourself that’s much more powerful and intuitive than you normally believe. And if you listen to your higher self you’ll feel more stable, more confident about the direction you desire to take your life, and you’ll have more trust in yourself.

Listen to the entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) on Bundle of Emotions’ question to receive the full benefit of their guidance for her and the rest of us. And let us know what you think about this session.

Trust Your Feelings About a Move

This post is a short question and answer from an anonymous reader who says they’ve felt for at least four years they don’t belong in their hometown and they ask The Council for guidance about moving.

The Council starts by saying they can see this person move if they can see it themselves. They encourage this person to trust their feelings and move anywhere the desire comes up within them. When you feel unhappy where you are and there’s a feeling it’s time to leave, ask yourself what you are drawn to and visit these places.

You will know where to move because an opportunity will open up for you. Perhaps it will be a job offer or a place to live. Learn to trust and follow your feelings. The Council says when you go somewhere and even though you are desperate to move, if it doesn’t feel right, follow your feeling and go with what pulls you and makes you smile when you think of it.

The Council says they see a move for you and you will create this move when your are ready as long as you let fear get out of the way. And it will be a good move as long as you follow your feelings. Your feelings will show you the way.

This 5-minute recording is testimony to the creative power of the individual when you allow the love you are as spirit into your life and follow these feelings. Listen to the session for The Council’s entire message. (The recording that follows is an excerpt from a session that answers several questions.)

Trusting You are Spirit in a Physical Body

Jaqueline’s Question

This is the first of two posts answering questions from Jaqueline, who asks The Council how to follow her inner guidance and find inner peace “even when things seem to be so messed up” in her life.

Jaqueline writes that she understands and sincerely believes in teachings like The Council’s and other teachers she’s familiar with who say, “We shouldn’t worry about anything ever because everything is gonna be just fine,” and, “We should enjoy life and think about whatever we want in our future in a positive vibration.” “But sometimes [it] is really hard to put this in practice.”

We like Jaqueline’s question because it frankly addresses a dilemma faced by many of us who are trying to follow teachings like The Council’s. In our saner moments these teaching make a lot of sense to us; they inspire us and lift our spirits. But sometimes, despite our best efforts, life can feel like an insurmountable challenge. When this happens it can feel equally challenging to remember and put in to practice these teachings about who we are as spiritual beings.

At the time Jaqueline wrote her questions for The Council she commented that, “All the time my head seems to be full of stressful thoughts about my future…about my present…if I’m going in the right direction…if I should do something…or nothing at all. Sometimes I get trapped in some drama and get very emotional about everything. Resuming, I have a hard time going with the flow.”

Stressful thoughts, feeling trapped, and feeling other unwanted emotions can be a challenge. When we feel this way and we also believe we’re not supposed to ever worry about anything and we should always be enjoying life, these expectations can sometimes add to the challenge of turning the situation around so we can ‘go with the flow’.

On July 24, 2012 we had a conversation with The Council (non-physical spiritual guides speaking through Cynthia) to get their advice on how to feel more in touch with well-being on a day-to-day basis when life seems to make this difficult.

This session contains many helpful insights, but for us the highlight is the reminder to meditate regularly on the idea that each of us is a spiritual being in a physical body. The Council advises that this type of regular meditation will help us feel more trusting that we really are spiritual beings, and this trust will help us through difficult times.

Interestingly, The Council says that as spiritual beings we actually look forward to these challenging human experiences because we view them as desirable opportunities to expand who we are as spirit into a physical reality.

This post relates the details of this session with The Council, and also includes some information on two meditation techniques they recommend. We plan to publish separate posts describing these meditations in more detail and eventually we plan to include audio recordings of these meditations as guided meditations.

This session also included The Council’s answer to Jaqueline’s question about whether she is going in the ‘right direction’ career-wise, and how career choices relate to experiences we have in other lifetimes. We feel this information is better suited to a separate post and we plan to publish that post in the near future also.
