Our Mission is to Assist You in Enhancing Your Experience of Life.
We accomplish this through providing written, video, and for our members, downloadable material.

Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of Continuous Life

Our service includes distant healing, which has been demonstrated by repeated scientific experiments to be beneficial; guided meditation, which has been demonstrated repeatedly by science, a public séance, which has been explored by science since the first public séance with the Fox sisters in Hydesville, New York, just outside of Rochester, and a message.

The Spiritualist Counselor:  Correction, the Spiritualist Guide

One out of four people will experience some form of mental difficulty,[1] while one in four will experience some form of mental trouble. Of those experiencing mental difficulties, less will admit to needing any form of assistance due to the perceived stigma of mental healthcare, and even less will be aware of any mental problems. As one can see, the need for guidance is great. Those that do become aware of their potential mental or emotional stress, may choose to avoid seeing a professional mental healthcare person. Studies have shown that less than a month after the September 11, 2001, event, an estimated 60% of those responding to a survey indicated in 2009, they would rather seek help from a spiritual counselor compared to those who would see a therapist or their doctor.[2] Let us take a moment and consider this. Why would anyone purposefully choose to not see a professional? As a minister, you may be seen as the next best person to consult and trust. In addition, you do not charge a fee and there is no stigma attached to seeing you.[3] The church, being a representation of religion in general, has a history of involvement with the sick and the mentally ill,[4] meaning ministers and pastors have been aiding not only their parishioners, but any who come in need of counseling.

The Philosophy of Spiritualism: Selected Writings from the Spiritualists Who Helped Frame Spiritualism

What is Spiritualism? Is it the demonstration of continuous life through communication with those who have moved from this plane to another? Is that all it is? Is it the process of converting people into operators who direct the call so corporeal and incorporeal citizens may speak to each other? If that is the case, then why bother? Phenomenal Mediumship offers little outside of being a demonstration, because we do not learn through the experiences of others.[1] Phenomenal Mediumship is what is demonstrated when a Medium stands before an audience and presents messages from those in the soul realm. Phenomenal Mediumship is not Spiritualism because Spiritualism is much more if you have the desire to learn. As humans, we have many natures, one of them is to investigate and remove all that causes discordance within.[2] That is what Andrew Jackson Davis instructs us to do, to investigate and remove doubt. When we remove doubt, we remove superstition.

Lacking confidence

Many teach that fear is an absence of love, however, if we teach that love is nurturing, then this may be false. If the expression of love is nurturing, then to take it away is to inflict pain or to do harm. What inflicts the most pain, both upon the one receiving it and the one giving it? It is hatred. Hatred is not our topic. Our topic is fear. Fear is an absence, but what might it be an absence of?

When we experience fear, we may become paralyzed or apprehensive. The first causes immobility, whereas the second is caution. The latter is more easily understood, despite the two being related. When we become cautious, we must consider why is there a need to do so. I am an investor, which means I buy and sell stocks and mutual funds. I do not buy and sell when the mood strikes me. I research the stock and I monitor the markets. Presently, the market appears to be in a downward spiral. The markets did the same thing during beginning of the pandemic. A lot of investors sold their interests while in a state of panic. They sold their stocks because they were fearful of losing gains and possibly their principle. They lacked confidence in their ability to stand fast. This is what fear is about, confidence, or a lack of confidence.

Those lacking the confidence to perform a task, whether it is investing, speaking, or in relationships with others are fearful of the outcome. What does this feel like? When experiencing fear, we may become anxious, paranoid, apprehensive, our heart may begin to race, we may even experience what is called panic attacks. While love may aid in overcoming fear, it does not take it away. The only thing that will take fear away is to discover its cause.

Fear is often a realization of something lacking. Information is usually what is lacking. Fear of the unknown is due to a lack of information, which leads to unexpected events. Fear of being successful is not planning for what happens after success. Fear of failing is not having an alternate plan. We might say fear is due to our lack of anticipating challenges. By anticipating potential downfalls allows us to prepare and be flexible in our execution. The better prepared we are, the more flexible our thinking, the more confident we become. With confidence, fear is less likely to paralyze us.

We cannot always be prepared unless our approach to life is one of flexibility. Flexibility acknowledges the nature of life, which is change. Knowing that change is the nature of life and accepting that change is the nature of life are not the same. Knowing through change we evolve allows us to prepare and to maintain alternate plans. Accepting change as progress may become our view of life, and those challenges we experience become opportunities. Accepting is not as easy as knowing but acknowledging and anticipating lead to accepting.

The next time fear is experienced, look for the message it is bringing. If love is nurturing, try not to nurture the fear. If fear is lacking, then filling the void with the appropriate response to the message alters the experience. Filling the void properly, does not take away fear, but it does lessen its influence.
