Anam Cara - Soul Friend

Anam Cara – Soul Friend

The Anam Cara is Gaelic term for “Soul Friend”. Traditionally, the Anam Cara was a person who you felt a special connection with and with whom you could share your innermost self and deepest intimacies with. This friendship which was cultivated with trust and openness,  was a very deep and special companion in which  you found a sense of recognition and belonging. The Anam Cara may have also come as a helpmate for a person who was dying and comfort this person during  their passage of death, or as a Spiritual mentor or guide which would teach it’s students wisdom and spiritual truth. In the Celtic tradition, when you connect with your Anam Cara, your two souls begin to flow together. This special connection was an awakening and unfolding as all barriers were down and protective distances collapse. A connection where...

Reflections from the Minister

Reflections from the Minister

As a Baby Boomer I sometimes think back to my earliest memories. These were the days before supermarkets, when packaged food was purchased from a small grocery store. Butcher’s shops had a thick layer of sawdust on the floor and the processing of carcasses was carried out on a huge wooden block. The only take away fast food was fish and chips. People huddled around their radio for electronic entertainment and there was no direct dial telephone. One had to ask the exchange operator for the number required to be put through. How the way we now progress our day to day lives has evolved since those times? But not only have technologies evolved but we as a people have also evolved in our acceptance of the beliefs and attitudes of others. The perception is that each generation is more savvy...

Creating and Manifesting Abundance in Your Life

Creating and Manifesting Abundance in Your Life

Open your minds to new ideas, surrender and believe. ENERGY We are all energy and like attracts like. “The Quantum Field responds not to what we want, it responds to who we are being” Joe Dispenza Sometime we don’t even realise what we are projecting as the feelings can run so deeply. If we show up from a place of fear, hurt, past pain, anxiousness… That is what we are putting out into our energy field and what others are picking up on…..Alternately, if we show up from a place of love, joy, excitement and expecting good THAT is the energy field we are creating and what others will pick up on. One is a repelling energy as its uncomfortable both for ourselves and others…. the other draws others to us as it is light and inviting, with a feeling of...

WHAT’S IN STORE – YEAR 2021   Numerology & Chinese Astrological Forecast

WHAT’S IN STORE – YEAR 2021 Numerology & Chinese Astrological Forecast

    Year 2021 = 5 = Hierophant Year 20 = Judgement (Stand up and be counted). 21 = The World (Completion – The end of a cycle).   This year of the Hierophant can be one of stress and confusion. We need to confront our own beliefs and work out what no longer serves. Traditional teaching still has a place in our world however there are also times when tradition needs to be updated. We live in a changing world and we need to find a way of balancing our thoughts and emotions. Certainly, learn lessons from the past but also consider how best we can move forward with improved knowledge. Less selfishness and a little more compassion is a good start.     CHINESE ASTROLOGY FOR 2021 = YEAR OF THE METAL OX.   Force = Yin Element =...

Healing the Child Within

Healing the Child Within

The wounded child within us is always present, waiting for us to turn our attention inwards towards its needs.   Most people have experienced some type of trauma as a child. These experiences may vary, i.e. having your favourite toy thrown in the bin or experiencing detachment through being placed in childcare.  More significant and painful experiences are incurred by  parental separation or divorce, abandonment, rejection or abuse. Whatever the degree of the trauma, the painful experiences are unknowingly repressed by us when we come into adulthood. These psychological wounds remain in our cellular memory during our lifetime – the impacts of the wounds are long lasting.   The wounds of childhood may reveal itself in adult years through: relationship difficulties, trust issues, self esteem, anger issues, physical ailments, depression & anxiety – it may even impact on a sexual level. We...

Merle Tait – Intuitive Art – Wrap up

Merle Tait, Intuitive Art Teacher, facilitated an Intuitive Art & Guide drawing workshop at COSE in September 2019 The contents of the workshop included a guided meditation to attune with our Spirit Guides, helpers and Inspirers. Merle then guided the workshop participants in drawing the foundations of a face portait. With the basic prompts of  the background color of the portrait and then eyes and facial features, we were encouraged to trust in our intuition, holding no perceptions of any expectations of what we wanted to draw, but allowing ourselves to be open and receptive to our intuitive and creative flow. The result of the workshop came up with some amazing art work and images of guides and Spirit impressions. Merle followed up with passing on Intuitive Readings on each participants Art Work in which a lot of insight was received....

Reflections from our Minister - Rev David Finlay

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...
