So, “What is spiritualism?” one would ask. Spiritualism is an acknowledgement of the metaphysical truths at the root of all religions. Wise masters through all time have tried to teach us about these meta-physical truths but (just as Homo Erectus’ brain was not evolved
enough to understand the concept of gravity) our brains were not sufficiently evolved to understand these teachings. Remember how the 3 sided shape of the triangle has always existed as conceptual reality; so too the metaphysical existence of energetic power has always been “out there” waiting for us to be ready to understand it and adopt it into our daily lives.
This is a transitioning period for spiritualism (moving into 5th
dimensional awareness & beyond) … growing numbers of people are coming to understand these principles in varying degrees. Spiritualism is becoming integrated with traditional belief systems and over time we will lose the hybrid (I am Christian-Spiritualist) and simply be ONE with a unified consciousness and perhaps exist wholly as spirit beings. Until then the most important thing we can do is exercise tolerance in letting our
Brothers and Sisters evolve at their own rate. We must always share what we know with others and learn what we can from others.
I guess spiritualist believe in energy…All the energies we experience in our 3 dimensional world can be traced back to the transformation of some other energy (think hydro). Eventually we cannot trace it any more we just know that we did not create and cannot destroy energy. Every-thing in spiritualism actually just comes down to that ENERGY… unquantifiable, unqualifiable POWER.
We believe there is ONE SOURCE of all existence on, in or through any dimension. Call it whatever you want God/ Source / Love/ The One, the name does not matter. Perceive that source anyway you wish, now whatever you have come up with expand it; whatever that source energy is, it is beyond our ability to define or imagine. Your perception is no more or less right than mine. I say God IS love… only because love is the most perfect/ pure expression of energetic power that I can conceive. If I visualize that ENERGY, it is a torrent of explosive light in perpetual flow.
ENERGY is in everything which exists in every possible dimension. Every molecule consists of atoms which are held in place by unseen energy. That is why spiritualists believe that all of creation (everything) is connected…not just intelligence and sentience but everything with a molecule is connected through this ONE energy.
We control our environment; physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, by the way we emit our energy into the world. Energy is always moving through us… the way in which we emit energy through our field, effects the nature of the energy coming into our field. You would know this principle as karma or what my granny would call "up-n-cuminz". You get what you give… and until you change the energy you are emitting the energy coming into your field will not change. This makes us the ultimate and final power in the creation of our own reality.
Spiritualists believe that there are consciousness beings (angels & ghosts) existing in non 3 dimensional bodies, which can be contacted and communicated with. Our 3-D bodies exist in a 3-D world but our spirit consciousness lives in all dimensions. Think of it as physical (head) consciousness and spirit (heart) consciousness…we all experience
communication between these two at some level; we call it instinct or intuition. Some people who we call psychics, shamans, mediums and the like, enjoy a much more open and direct communication between heart and head consciousness. The good news is if you want, you can open that communication not only within yourself, but extending into the universal consciousness (where all knowledge and truth exists).
So read the books and listen to the teachers… keep what resonates (feels right) with you. Trust your spirit to guide you. What is right for your spirit will feel good, what is wrong for you will feel uncomfortable. This is your SPIRITUAL journey; your truth is your truth… and as long as you are DOING NO HARM… you do not owe anyone an apology or explanation.
Have a joyous day.
