Throughout my life, maybe only once a decade, I have hit points of feeling like I need to do a major re-write of my life script. These have been times when I have sustained the deep, sinking feeling that I am simply not getting it right. Whatever I am supposed to be doing with my life is not what is happening. I would hit points of despair, about myself mostly (not having a clear idea of who I was or what I was here for).
I don't remember when I started doing this or why, but at these very low points, before I would go to sleep at night, I would simply say (and usually out loud) "I need to meet with the Council."
I am an excellent dream re-caller, in general, but on the nights I asked to meet with 'the council', I would invariably awaken the next morning with absolutely no dream recall but with a sense of well- being.
Years ago, I was meeting with a friend of mine who was one of the most powerful healers I have ever known and somehow I mentioned to him about 'the council' and he laughed with glee that I knew about "them."
Recently, I have been reading about all the information obtained from thousands of hypnotherapy sessions by a therapist named Michael Newton. (Book title Journey of Souls). Mr. Newton's main interest was (and is) on what the soul experiences between lives. Fascinating material that I read with an open mind. Well, lo and behold, one of the pieces he has obtained from many many different clients is about 'a council' that we meet with at certain junctions in the 'after life' (strange name in that we are very much alive then!). These meetings are deemed crucial. The council is made up of very high beings, higher than our own personal guide that we work with on the other side.
In reading about all this, I knew that I knew about this information. I would not call it 'remembering' what I knew so much as 'recognizing' what I knew.
I feel such a deep sense of gratitude that something in me knew to reach out to these high beings when I most needed their help. I also somehow knew they were not to be called upon trivially, for we are to work out our own issues as much as possible, so that we can learn and grow. But sometimes, when between a rock and a hard place, reaching out is an act of tremendous self- regard.
I pass knowledge of this resource along to all with whom it resonates. Sometimes, we simply need all the help we can get.
