Our Healing Prayer and Principles with enhanced explanations
I ask the great Unseen Healing Force…
We look to Infinite Intelligence, God for our healing. Also working on our bodies, souls and minds are the many healing guides, doctors, chemists, and loved ones on the spirit plane. We also have all those doctors and healers who are still here on this earth plane and available to us in times of need. They are there for us whether at church with Hands on Healing or in the pertinent doctor/nurse practitioner office and clinics.
to remove all obstructions from my mind and body…
Obstructions come in many forms as we are currently seeing. Job loss, illness, loss of loved ones, financial concerns and riots. Stress is at this time wreaking havoc on our bodies, minds and souls. We are being bombarded.
and to restore me to perfect health
We sit in prayer asking all of the above sources to answer our prayers to relieve these stresses. Isn’t there more that we individually can do?
I ask this in all sincerity and honesty and I will do my part.
Those two words are so important – my part. Our part is to correct that which is wrong in our current pattern of living and thinking. If you still smoke – stop. Do not drink to excess, take unnecessary drugs. Do exercise or at least keep active. Stand or walk about rather than sitting or lounging about. Get out and get sun. Read the current July/August Readers Digest in regard to Vitamin D and sunscreen. More of D and less of sunscreen. Think positively. There is always something in our lives to uplift us if we just look. Whether it is the activities of birds and squirrels or just daily seeing the change in your gardens, they are there to encourage or amuse us. (Go back to the April 19 service I put on with the story of the Man in a Flood.) Take your medications. Eat in a healthy manner. Drink plenty of fluids. Wear your masks, wash and sanitize your hands. That is doing your part.
I ask this great Unseen Healing Force to help both present and absent ones
Envision the ones you are praying for whether from your own healing list or the church healing list. See them surrounded by the white light of protection and the blue light of healing. As you sit and meditate with your prayers have your palms up if sending healing out to those loved ones. The energy will flow through you from the Infinite and all healing guides out to the recipients. If sitting for healing for yourself have your palms down so the energy will flow and circulate through you rather than being dispersed outward. See them or yourself at their/your perfect healed self.
I put my trust in the love and power of God.
Now you have put your trust into the hands of Infinite Intelligence and your healing guides. Know they will direct the energies and solutions to you if you but listen and heed the advice directed to you whether directly from spirit or indirectly from your health professional.
Note: We are in very strange times right now with Covid-19. Here are two quotes from Dr. Nirav D. Shah on June 2020
a.) The Virus travels where people travel.
b.) Young are not on an island of their own in regard to Covid-19.
Declaration of Principles Interpretation by 3rd NSAC President Joseph Whitwell
- We Believe in Infinite Intelligence
By this we express our belief in a supreme Impersonal Power, everywhere present, manifesting as life, through all forms of organized matter, called by some God, by others, Spirit and by Spiritualists, Infinite Intelligence.
- We believe that the phenomena of Nature, both physical and spiritual, are the expression of Infinite Intelligence.
In this manner we express our belief in the immanence of Spirit and that all forms of life are manifestations of Spirit or Infinite Intelligence, and thus all men are children of God.
- We affirm that a correct understanding of such expression and living in accordance therewith constitute true religion.
A correct understanding of the laws of nature on the physical, mental and spiritual planes of life and living in accordance therewith will unfold the highest aspirations and attributes of the Soul, which is the correct function of True Religion.
- We affirm that the existence and personal identity of the individual continue after the change called death.
“Life here and life hereafter is all one life whose continuity of consciousness is unbroken by that mere change in form whose process we call death.” Lilian Whiting- Writer, editor, activist, journalist, poet
- We affirm that communication with the so-called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism.
Spirit communication has been in evidence in all ages of the world and is amply recorded in both sacred and profane literature of all ages. Orthodoxy has these manifestations and has interpreted them in dogma and creed in terms of the supernatural. Spiritualism accepts and recognizes these manifestations and interprets them in the understanding and light of Natural Law.
- We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule; “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
This precept we believe to be true. It points the way to harmony, peace, and happiness. Wherever tried it has proven successful and when fully understood and practiced, will bring peace and happiness to man on Earth.
- We affirm the moral responsibility of individuals and that we make our own happiness or unhappiness as we obey or disobey Nature’s physical and spiritual laws.
Man himself is responsible for the welfare of the world in which he lives; for its welfare or its misery, for its happiness or unhappiness and if he is to obtain Heaven upon Earth, he must learn to make that heaven, for himself and for others. Individually, man is responsible for his own spiritual growth and welfare. Sins and wrong-doing must be out grown and overcome. Virtue and love of good must take their place. Spiritual growth and advancement must be attained by aspiration and personal striving. Vicarious atonement has no place in the philosophy of Spiritualism. Each one must carry his own cross to Calvary’s Heights in the over- coming of wrong-doing and replacing them with the right.
- We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed against any soul here or hereafter.
We discard entirely the terrible wrong and illogical teachings of eternal damnation and in place thereof we accept and present for consideration of thinking the thought of the continuity of life beyond the change called death.
A natural life, where the opportunity for growth and progress to better, higher and more spiritual conditions are open to all, even as they are here on the earth plane of life. We accept no such teaching as a “Hell-Fire,” but we do teach that sin and wrong-doing will necessarily bring remorse and suffering that would be difficult to describe in words and which can only be relieved by the individual’s own efforts if not here, then in the hereafter. If we make our own lives better while here and that of our neighbors happier we shall unfold that happiness or heaven on earth which we shall carry with us into the Spirit World.
- We affirm that the precepts of Prophecy and Healing are Divine attributes proven through Mediumship.
We thus affirm our belief in and acceptance of the truths which are contained in the Bible (Sacred Texts) and assert that Prophecy and Mediumship are not unique nor of recent occurrence alone, but they are universal, everlasting and have been witnessed and observed in all ages of the world.
This week take time outside to communicate with your spirit friends and guides. Accept the blessings you have been given by the Infinite.
