What's It All About?
Spiritualism is a Philosophy, Science and was recognised and registered as a Religon by the Commonwealth Government of Australia in 1923.
Spiritualism is based on the belief of the continuous existence of the Human Spirit after death and the ability to communicate with the Spirits of those who have passed to higher life.
This belief is evidenced through the gift of mediumship by demonstrating the proof of survival of each individual soul and each individual's own personal experience/s.
An Introduction to Spiritualism
Spiritualism is a progressive philosophy, based on Natural Laws and natural phenomena. Every being is seen as an individual looking to expand their own awareness and understanding their human experience and soul's journey.
Spiritualists recognise no authority as final arbiter of belief and believe only in that which is based on verifiable fact and personal experience. Spiritualists accept the right of all to their own Truth.
How Do Spiritualists View Life?
We accept there is a far greater intelligence, a life force, an all knowing, ever present energy that exists. Most of us know this divine force as "GOD", a Divine source that has expressed itself through each and every one of us.
We acknowledge that we all are truly God's children and that in spirit we are all brothers and sisters.
We see life as eternal and we acknowledge that we are coexisting in a physical body. We believe that we follow out own pathway through our earthly life.
What Brings Us to Spiritualism?
For some of us it is through the passing of a loved one that makes us question life. For others it is the feeling that there is so much more to know about our spiritual being, that something is missing in our life, or that so many things remain unexplained, so we start searching for our own truth about life.
Spiritualism not only gives us tangible proof of the life hereafter, it shows us a new way to believe, think and act in life. Life has purpose and meaning.
The Seven Principles of Spiritualism
The philosophical structure of Spiritualism centres on the Seven Principles, which provide guidelines and a solid foundation to follow for life in the physical existence.
We as Spiritualists, endeavour in our lives to hold and live to these Principles that our Religion, Science, and Philosophy has as its base. These principles are as follows:
The Creative Divine Spirit of the universe whom we call God
Unity of all created beings
Communion of spirits and ministering guides
Continuous existence of life beyond the veil of death
Communication between incarnate and discarnate spirits
Personal responsibility for all our actions on earth
A path of eternal progress open to all souls
The love in all that Spiritualism encompasses, is a
great force that works for the highest good of
humanity on many, many levels throughout the world.
