~ ABOUT SPIRITUALISM ~
What is Spiritualism?
It is a Philosophy, Science and Religion based on the belief of the continuous existence of the Soul/Spirit after passing from this world and the ability to communicate with those spirits. One of the Pillars of Spiritualism is Spiritual/Divine Healing.
When Did It Begin?
Aspects of this Spiritualist Philosophy date right back into the very early ages of mankind's history. Though the Movement as we know it today began in America in 1848, when communication was received from a man known to have died. Then suddenly, contact with the departed became frequent and publicised around the world. Many small groups gathered together, spreading across America, then quickly to England, Europe in 1852, and to the Australian goldfields in Victoria in the 1860's. Across the world today many
countless Churches, Centres and Groups have been formed.
Who are Spiritualists?
The majority of Spiritualists are people who at some time were part of an orthodox religion, discovering that the knowledge presented was very limited, leaving many
incomplete answers to questions. These people are of all ages, race and creed who wish to have the freedom to explore their own understanding, which will assist them to have a better concept of life and its origin, without feeling restricted by the limited views of others. People are encouraged to be responsible for their own actions and to take control of their own life. They are given the opportunity to seek out truth and beliefs which resonate with their own heart as each ones own Spiritual journey unfolds..
What do they Believe?
Spiritualism has no Dogma or Creed. Every being is seen as an individual looking to expand their own awareness and understanding surrounding their role in life.
Spiritualism has Seven Principles
given as inspired Guidelines, open to personal interpretation. We accept that there is a Great Infinite Divine Intelligence, the Life Force, an all knowing, ever present energy..."GOD
" The Creator of all life, leaving within each one of us a spark of Divinity... The LIGHT WITHIN.
Divine Love flows constantly from the Source of all Creation to all living beings and all forms of NATURE. We believe that we all follow our own path at our own pace, discovering the "God
" within.We are Spiritual Beings having a physical experience in a material world, aspiring to perfect balance on our journey back to the Divine Source. Our basic belief is in the continuation of Life and that Death is just a transition to another level of consciousness. We see life as Eternal. We are a Spirit co-existing in a Physical Body. We strive to create a loving, nurturing atmosphere where one can discover their own divinity. A place where freedom of thought, self expression and confidence in one's uniqueness can grow. Where peace and true attunement with all life can be felt. We recognise Psychic faculties as a natural ability, (however latent in some), but is another one of our senses (the sixth sense/intuition). Meditation is an important aspect used in the development and awareness of these
areas and is a natural progression toward spiritual unfoldment. As we experience many things on our journey through life we find ourselves likening life to the
classroom in which we learn many lessons.
The Aims Spiritualism
To provide various Mediums/Speakers an opportunity to share their knowledge of life.
To demonstrate and prove that life continues and communication with the caring loved ones is possible.
To create a loving, nurturing atmosphere where one can discover their own divinity.
A place where freedom of thought, self expression and confidence in one's uniqueness can grow. Where peace and true at-one-ment with all of life can be felt.
One of the Pillars of Spiritualism is Spiritual/Divine Healing which includes Absent or Distance Healing. You may have heard the term "healing hands/laying on hands" before. This is especially true of a "Spiritual" healer as the hands are often the focal point through which healing is channelled (although healing energies can in fact be passed from the whole body).
