Transformation from Human to Spirit

Council of Elders in life review Agree: 9 divider Disagree: 0

59

Both Agreements and DisagreementsA Council of Elders, wise spirits of both male and female energies, is present the majority of the time during the life review there to help support the new spirit energy as it looks at all of the events that took place in its lifetime.

AgreeThis place I have come to call the shower of healing is only a prelude for the rehabilitation of returning souls. The orientation stage which immediately follows (expecially with younger souls), involves a substation counseling session with one's guide. The newly refreshed soul arrives at this station to undergo a debriefing of the life just ended. Orientation is also designed as an intake interview to provide further emotional release and readjustment back into the spirit world.

Agree...after souls arive back into their soul groups, they are summoned to appear before a Council of Elders. While the Council is not prosecutorial, they do engage in direct examination of a soul's activities before returning them to their groups.

Agree...I do know a Presence is felt when we go before our Council of Elders. Once or twice between lives we visit this group of higher beings who are a step or two above our teacher-guides...The council is not a tribunal of judges nor a courtroom where souls appear to be tried and sentenced for wrongdoing...Members of the council want to talk to us about our mistakes and what we can do to correct negative behaviour in the next life.

AgreeRegardless of the specific energy treatment received by the soul at the gateway to the spirit world, most all returning souls will continue on to some sort of healing station before finally joining their groups. Most recovery areas for the returning soul involve some kind of orientation back to the spirit world. This usually includes a preliminary debriefing of the life just completed. Much more in-depth counseling will take place later with guides in group conferences and with our Council of Elders.

AgreeNot long after souls return to their spirit groups they are called before a gathering of wise beings. A step or two above our guides, these ascended masters are the most advanced identifiable entities my still-incarnating clients see in the spirit world.

AgreeThe spirit world is a place of order and the Council of Elders exemplifies justice. They are not the ultimate source of divine authority, but they appear to represent the last station of beings responsible for souls still incarnating on Earth. These wise beings have great compassion for human weakness and they demonstrate infinite patience with our faults. We will be given many second chances in future lives.

AgreeDuring this meeting, the major choices we made in the life just lived are reviewed with us. Behaviour and accountability for our actions at important forks in our karmic path are evaluated carefully. At the first conference we are acutely aware of our mistakes, especially if we have hurt others.

AgreeThe council is looking to see if the inner immortal character of our soul maintained its integrity in terms of values, ideals and action duing incarnation. They want to know if we were submerged by our host body, or did we shine through? Did our soul effectively merge as a partner to the human brain as one harmonious outward human personality?

Agree...most of my advanced clients, along with large numbers of intermediate souls, see their councils as androgynous. An Elder may appear as sexless or be of mixed gender, flashing both male and female images to the soul.
