Reflections from our Minister - Rev David Finlay

Reflections from our Minister – Rev David Finlay

REFLECTIONS OF THE MINISTER Over recent weeks have been drawn by Spirit to reflect on the letter , “i”, not in the context of the perpendicular pronoun but in words such as inspired, impressed, intuition, instinct and imagination. All of these words relate to the unconscious energies we sense in our daily lives but also when we are consciously working with Spirit. To elaborate, absolutely everything in the Universe seen and unseen is energy. We are energy and so being a part of the whole energetic picture we sense and react to shifts in this sea of energy surrounding us. On a physical level at times we are drawn seemingly like a magnet to some persons whilst we are repulsed by others without perhaps having any exchange with them other than them having been in the vicinity of our extended energetic...

Power of the Mind to Create and Manifest

Power of the Mind to Create and Manifest

  Whether we realize it or not, our thoughts create our reality and manifest outcomes in our physical existence. Our mind has two levels – the conscious or rational level and the subconscious or irrational level. You think with your conscious mind and what you habitually think, sends messages to the subconscious mind, which creates according to your thoughts. The subconscious is subject to the conscious mind.  All of your emotionalized thoughts, hopes and desires seeds your subconscious. Your subconscious does not work towards proving whether your thoughts are right or wrong, good or bad, dull or productive, the subconscious obediently responds to the nature of your conscious thoughts and suggestions. Having a better understanding of how the conscious and subconscious mind works, will enable you to transform your life. You can then create success with all your goals and endeavours...

Reflections from our Minister – Rev David Finlay

In his book ‘Ancient Teachings for Beginners’ published in 2003 the author Douglas De Long states as part of the introduction in the context of evolving that ‘people are awakening and becoming more spiritual’. In stumbling across this statement it reinforced what was already in my mind as the topic for this article. I was inspired a few days earlier to write this passage about my own journey of spiritual awakening with particular emphasis on the role COSE has played in this evolution. My active awakening process commenced  in the early to mid-1990’s long before I had heard of spiritualism and spiritualist churches when I was drawn to and became involved in a private development group with a particular focus on crystal enhanced spiritual healing and it was with this group that I witnessed many amazing occurrences. One can only speculate...

The Benefits of Meditation

The Benefits of Meditation

When the founders of COSE chose the name: “Church Of Spiritual Enlightenment”, this reflected the purpose for which it was established, and that was to provide a Sanctuary which would bring guidance and healing for those who sought to understand their spiritual nature and their own divine essence. A Sanctuary which would guide people on their Path of Spiritual Unfoldment. The journey towards “Enlightenment” is a personal unfoldment. Although an individual may have access to wise teachings, techniques and spiritual disciplines, it is actually the journey Inwards that guides One to be attuned with the Divine Indweller and Christ Within. Spiritual teachers are Way Show-ers, but only the Individual can come into their own Divine Presence and Oneness with the Divine Indweller. The teachings of Jesus guided the people to the God Within. Many these days still seek God outside of...
