The Spiritual Healing Temple

Last Sunday I had the great pleasure of attending an evening service at the The Spiritual Healing Temple. It was Rev. Lorraine Willey, the visiting reverend at TNSA a few weeks ago, who told me about the Temple. The experience at the Temple was similar and yet subtly different from my experiences at the various Spiritualist churches I've been attending.

Both the Spiritualist churches and the Spiritual Healing Temple stress that people of all religions and spiritual backgrounds are welcome. Both include music as a way of raising vibrations during the services and, of course, as a way to make the time of worship richer and more beautiful. Both feature a sermon/teaching. Both include psychic/spiritual readings of those in the attendance. Both include aspects of healing, although hands on healing was not done at the least not at the one service I was at. Both include an after-service social.

At the Temple, we did not jointly read the Spiritualist church "tenets" because the Temple does not classify itself under the Spiritualist church umbrella. That said, there was a page devoted to what those who go to the Temple believe in, and it's very similar to the "tenets."

Also, the Temple included a WONDERFUL, healing meditation that was about 15 minutes long. Not all of the Spiritualist churches I've attended thus far include such a least not one that was that long. After the meditation, we were encouraged to share anything we experienced during meditation.

The sermon/teaching/class at the Temple was conducted by both of the reverends present. Each would take a turn reading and discussing. I enjoyed the class a lot.

Another thing I really liked about the Temple was the plentiful candles and statues representing various faiths and thought. The Spiritualist churches always have at least one candle going, but at the Temple, the many candles provided much warmth and a pleasing atmosphere.

The two reverends, Rev. Nancy Higgins and Rev. Mary Ann Tourjee, at the Temple made me feel truly welcome, as did the few folks who also attended the service. I can say without a doubt that I'd like to go back to the Temple again.

Rev. Nancy separately chatted with me after service for awhile, finding out a bit more about my background and interests. She kindly handed me a calendar for their upcoming events and a brochure and business card about the Temple. One thing that really interests me is that they make rosaries and prayer beads for all faiths as a mission project once a month. These rosaries are sent to the military Troops and others in need, such as in nursing homes, etc. I LOVE ROSARIES AND PRAYER BEADS! I love saying the my case, it's the Catholic rosary that I was brought up with. I think I've mentioned on this blog before that my idea of fun was to attend an after-school rosary making class back when I was in 5th grade. I have a strong feeling that I'll be making rosaries at the Temple in the future!

Thank you, Rev. Nancy and Rev. Mary Ann, for making me feel so welcome and at home in the Spiritual Healing Temple. And I can't forget a big thank you to Rev. Lorraine for telling me about the Temple.

Tomorrow I head to Lily Dale at Fellowships of the Spirit for Spiritual Insight Training Part II. I'm bursting with excitement! No doubt I'll write a post in the near future about it. Can't wait!!!!!

On Being More Aware

Every day it feels like my awareness is expanding wider and wider. What a blessing this is. Rather than taking and accepting things as they come and feeling rather helpless regarding what folks often refer to as "what life throws at them", I'm being shown on multiple levels ways to do more than just cope and YOU CAN, TOO! Information is, indeed, readily offered from the other side. How do we tap into this treasure trove of knowledge? For one thing, the mere act of wanting to sets an intention that lets your Guides and Angels know that you're ready and willing to listen and act on their guidance. And from what I can tell, the more one listens and acts on what they so freely show us, the more they show us. Said another way...the more aware we are of their help, the more they'll help.

Another important point is to be ready to ask for help. I've read in more than one metaphysical book that due to each of us having free will, Guides and Angels need to be asked if help is wanted. I think an exception to this is during a true emergency, when they KNOW we need help but we may be too caught up in the dramatic moment of it all to ask...then they're Johnny-On-The-Spot, so to speak. I'll speak for myself when I say that at first I worried that I was wasting their time asking for help regarding the many little things we encounter in life. NOT SO. No situation is too small... nor too big, for that ask them for assistance. From what I've experienced thus far, they LOVE to help us and are happy to be called on.

Here's a couple of recent examples of help from the other side... Chris and I were in the Bennington, VT Goodwill store. Over the years, this has become my fave place to shop for clothes because I can usually find something really good for really little. My usual mode is to head straight for the clothing racks. This time, however, I mumbled to Chris that I needed to head for the book area...albeit a small area in this store...but you never know... The important thing is that I felt the nudge and acted on the call. As I stood in front of the shelves of non-catalogued books, I quickly said, "Book Angel, please help me to find a book, should it be one that I need to read. Thank you." My hand was guided immediately to an oversized, floppy paperback. As I gently moved this book to one side, hidden behind it was Doreen Virtue's, "The Lightworker's Way: Awakening Your Spiritual Power to Know and Heal." Now let's just say that I have never, up until this point, found any metaphysical books at the Goodwill...other thrift stores? yes...but the Goodwill? no. This book turned out to be JUST THE BOOK that made another book I was presently reading at home...a book that I was finding difficult to read...much more clear. I'm just about finished with Virtue's book, and I'm flabbergasted by just how important and this very moment in time...her information is for me.

Another example... Last Sunday I attended a service at TNSA again. The usual practice is that Chris drops me off and goes to the tennis courts to hit a few balls or to some nearby bench to read while I'm in church. Because I don't want him to have to wait longer than necessary, I generally don't go to the social after service. This time, however, I walked outside after service and his car wasn't there yet. I asked, "Am I supposed to go back in for a reason?" The answer I heard loud and clear was, "Yes!" So back in I trotted. I made myself a cuppa tea which I brought to the table where others were chatting and having a nice time. I got to speak to the visiting reverend and was given really important information that I wouldn't have received had I not gone back in. Awhile later, I walked out of the church and said telepathically, "Thank you!"

And that "Thank you" is ever so important, because when all is said and done, we ALL appreciate when someone is thankful for help given and services rendered...spirits included!!!!!

Talk to them and then trust what you hear.

Two Different Church Visits

Chris and I have been doing a tad of traveling of late, allowing me to check out two Spiritualist churches that I hadn't previously been to. He and I both thought it would be a good idea to compare and contrast what goes on at these churches.

The first church I visited is one of two Spiritualist churches in the entire state of Vermont. The Vision of Light Church of Spiritualism and Healing is located in VERY rural Hartland, VT. The service is held on Sunday morning, 10 am, in the small, main room of the Legion Post. As I arrived, a few folks were scurrying about setting out flyers, a candle and angel statue near the pulpit area, and setting the coffee on. The chairs were set in a circle around the room. Counting me, there were about 10 who were eventually present before the proceedings began. The folks were truly kind and welcoming, with a few of them separately coming over to say hello to me. Spiffy new books of songs and prayers were handed out to each of us. A woman playing guitar sang the opening song alone. This same woman gave the sermon, but she was not introduced as a reverend, although that doesn't mean she necessarily wasn't. Another woman recited an absolutely wonderful poem called, "The Invitation," which was written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. A YouTube clip of the poem is worth taking time to watch:

There were two fancy chairs where two members gave healings. Everyone, including me, had a turn to go for a healing. The last portion of the service was reserved for readings. No one led the readings as I've seen at TNSA. Instead, the floor was open for anyone to give a reading who wanted to. A woman named Kelly read for me. She said that a Druid was behind me and was a guide. She also talked about how I had Crow/Raven energy around me. The crow was "picking" at things that don't belong in my second chakra.

I very much enjoyed this rural service, and I couldn't immediately pinpoint why I doubted I'd go back again. After further thinking, I believe it's because I prefer a larger, more churchy, church setting. And while the Spiritualist churches in general (noting that I've not been to a whole lot of them as I've formed this initial pre-opinion) don't seem to be steeped in heavy ritual per se, at least not as the Catholic church that I was brought up in does, I think I do like things a little more formal all the way around than what this church setting in a tiny Legion hall has to offer. Still, please know that all the people involved in this church are kind, sincere, and friendly, and I was grateful for their warm welcome.

This past Sunday found us in NYC, visiting our oldest son, David, and celebrating his 30th birthday! It's hard for me to believe we're the parents of a 30 year old, but his birth certificate reinforces that 30 years have, indeed, gone by. We arrived in Brooklyn mid-afternoon on Sunday, where our son has an apartment. Not long after arriving, we all hopped on a subway train and headed to Murray Hill, 114 East 35th Street, between Lexington and Park Avenue in Manhattan. The church is called the Spiritualist Church of New York City. The service was not to start until 6pm, so we had time to grab some dinner at a diner. The Greek spinach pie that Chris and I both ordered was rather woeful...I mean, how can someone make spinach pie that looks great but has no taste?...but I digress... After dinner, David and Chris walked me to the door of the church which WAS very churchy...the opposite of what I experienced in Vermont...pews, an altar, etc. They took a long walk and I attended the service. There was a gentleman playing piano artfully AND skillfully as the church filled with well over 50 people from obviously diverse cultures and backgrounds. Where I wasn't sure who or if anyone was a reverend in the VT church, we were introduced to several reverends in the NYC church. One reverend introduced the two reverends who were presiding over the service. Another reverend was in the back of the church (she came forward with announcements at the end of the service). The presiding reverends were both in black garments with white was all quite formal! The service itself was comprised of a sermon, a healing...this time a group healing in the form of a meditation...and a few readings were given to individuals in the congregation at the end. I was not one of the people who got read. The pianist played songs and we sang from the same spiffy hymnals that were at the VT church. I've taken note that it would be good if someone or a group of folks with at least somewhat decent voices would lead the actual singing, because it leaves much to be desired if no one is in charge at all. After this service, refreshments were supposed to be served but I'm not sure how there was time to do so, because everything was running a bit late and the seance was going to begin soon. Yes, a seance! Unfortunately, I didn't have $20 in cash that would allow me to attend the hour-long seance, but it's really cool that this is offered each and every Sunday. It looked like quite a few folks showed up just for the seance, because a group of them plopped down near me at the end of the service. I told Chris I would definitely like to go to the seance next time we're in town.

Now something I need to add here is what I saw, almost from the beginning of entering the Spiritualist church in NYC. I saw auras and spirits not unlike I did when I attended a conference at a church in Connecticut. For that past post, please go to Another Clairvoyant and Clairsentient Experience. For one thing, I saw an angel behind the reverend who gave the sermon, and one or two other spirits. Then I saw what I believe to be this same angel stand behind the other reverend who gave the meditation. The auras around these reverends were HUGE and even made the pulpit glow white as snow. I saw more auras around the other reverends, as well. I could feel the high vibrations in the room throughout. 'twas wonderful!!!!!

A Fine, But Definite, Line Between Ethical Questions And Those That Are Not Quite

A few months ago I wrote a post on the word "no": Strength In The Word No. Something recently came up that has got me thinking about this word again, especially relating to ethics as a psychic. I'll explain...

As a psychic reader, be it regarding Tarot readings, Empath readings, or other readings, I thankfully only occasionally get requests to do a reading based on a question that doesn't sit well with me. For instance, when someone wants to know how someone else (interestingly, often someone they don't know well and often someone that they are interested in romantically) is actually thinking, my ethical red flags go up and start waving wildly. For one thing, it's truly an invasion of a person's privacy if I tap into what a person is thinking without them knowing it. So I don't. But then I'm also left with the issue on how to gently tell the person wanting a reading what I can and cannot do from an ethical standpoint. This can be tricky, but usually I just say that ethically I cannot attempt to read another's mind, but perhaps we can go another route. So for instance, a person (let's call her Sally) asks, "How does, (let's call him) Harry, feel about me?" I suggest to Sally that the question be instead, "What does Sally need to know, for her highest good, regarding Harry?" There's a fine line between the two questions, but a definite line, nonetheless. In the first question, I'd have to tap into Harry's feelings directly. In the second question, I am tapping into the Universe and my own Guides for Sally, who is the one who wants a reading in the first place, and asking for guidance for her highest good regarding Harry. Okies? Understand the difference? When the question is asked ethically, I then know that whatever I it what I see, hear, what is meant to be shared and is kosher, so to speak.

To continue on another path, but closely related to the above, is when I have to tell someone that I don't think I'm the person they need to help them. I have to gently tell them no, I cannot do a reading for you. This has happened very, very infrequently, but it has happened. Basically, I get a STRONG gut feeling not to do the reading. I've gotten to the point that I don't question this strong intuitive message anymore, even if I don't always know the reason why I shouldn't read for the person. The person sometimes gets disgruntled, but I have to look past that, knowing that my decision is best for all concerned.
