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

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...

Angel Connections

Angel Connections

Everyone has Guides and Angels who are always close by, working and walking alongside you lovingly. The more we attune with, communicate and recognise our Angel Helpers, the more we are strengthening our connection. Not only are you strengthening your connection and communication, you are also deepening your Oneness with Source and your Higher Self. Most people are not able to see or hear Angels because the vibration of the Angelic Realm is at a much higher frequency than our own. You may however, learn to see, hear and sense Angels. It is easier to connect with Angels when your frequency is high. Our frequency is naturally high when we are in states of joy, openheartedness and positivity. We are also able to heighten our vibrations through spiritual practices, such as healing, sacred circle work and also love and light service...
