Sunday Service Nov.7,2021 Prayer: Infinite Spirit, Creator of all life, Thank you for the many blessings that surround each of us daily, even though we don't always notice them. Help us to look beyond our challenges for a few moments each day and see the beauty of nature and the little things that make us smile. We know that many people are really stressed out and many are in physical and mental and emotional pain and to those we send unconditional love and healing. We send thanks and love to all the people in the medical profession that are exhausted from the extra work that has been asked of them during this pandemic and extend that to all the front line workers who make our lives so much better. As we head into the time of Remembrance Day, we give thanks to all those souls who have given their lives so that we may live in relative peace. We have so much to be thankful for , and yet we too often dwell on the difficult and sad parts of our lives and forget that Your love is always around us -lifting us up and shining light on paths that can help us move forward and on this day we give thanks for Your ever-present unconditional love. AMEN
Address; Many of you are tired and frustrated with life at this moment and with winter approaching you might feel like hibernating. We encourage you to instead, begin to expand your horizons- read books, watch documentaries that teach you new ideas and perspectives- try new things that excite you to move your mind into a positive and happy state. Life is not simple-it can at times be very complex but if you take some time for your own spiritual, mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, you can deal with those challenges in a healthier way. By looking after your well-being, you will often find your perspective on events going on around will change-it will be clearer and when you see the big picture it can help you cope better. Don't forget to include God and your spirit friends when you are sad and disheartened. They are just waiting for you to open the door of your mind and soul so they can heal, inspire and uplift you. They often will slip in insights on a situation or influence you to go somewhere or pick up a book or turn on a television programme that contains clues to something you need to know. Your soul wanted to come to earth to learn and grow and give back and right now there is so much that can enrich your time here. Help out where you can- listen to your soul before you blame or put down someone you don't agree with. Add your shining light to the world by being kind and patient with those who are angry and afraid by the changes that the pandemic has brought about. For some, it is the feeling of not being in control of so much of their life at present. Life is all about change, whether we like it or not-nothing is static forever so, if you can, help them to be okay with what they feel are restrictions by pointing out that they are not alone-that we are all going through this together and it will continue to change and for the better. Do the best you can with each day and deal with each day as it happens. By living in the present you can accomplish much more that if you spend too much time worrying about what might happen in the future. Live your life fully, with positive energy and joy so you won't look back with regret at the opportunities you had to grow, to be kind and compassionate. In the end, it is how much love you gave out that will count when you return to spirit -that is what brings you spiritual richness-Love , which is how you express your soul-is the most important gift for you to share. May each one of you find peace and joy as you move forward. From Rev. Patricia Gunn and her spirit friends

Uniting us all together again as one family, We are blessed in this knowledge and comforted by our constant knowing Of life living on and being part of the divine spark from the beginning before time. We acknowledge your loving guidance and presence now and always Amen.

Halloween’s Origins: Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago, mostly in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the New Year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort during the long, dark winter. To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other’s fortunes. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter. The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. On Halloween, to keep ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.

Address:
I was ordained on October 30th on a Sunday 5 years ago now, and I remember trying to get as close to Halloween as possible. I love this time of year with the multi- coloured leaves and sun shine peeking through the clouds, it’s such a wonderful time of the year. I had a black cat in England (which having a black cat was lucky) of course this is not true in the same way a black cat is unlucky. A cat is a pure creature designed by our creator which is incapable of bringing anything but love and happiness into your life. As we know some people think of us Mediums as weird or strange as they don’t understand our true philosophy and how the seven principles play in our lives and love being the key to all and everything. This misunderstanding fall’s in the same way of things like having a black cat and having Tarot cards, this usually means you’re a witch or spooky and cast spells on people, this lack of knowledge causes bias opinions and fear into some people. Understanding the origins of where these suspicions come from goes back to ancient times where there was a lack of knowledge and which caused fear. In this day and age I find it funny how these predjudiseses still are heard of today, even in this modern time. But with these notions that are passed down by our elders, we can change all this, with each generation we have the responsibility to change all this nonsense. You are not a witch for having Tarot Cards or having a cat which happens to be black, Mediums are not weird we are just more open and sensitive than other’s around us. But we work with love and Spirit that dwell in the light of God and which we are all apart of, we are all connected and entwined. Let’s help stop predjudice on all counts and move forward to strive to make a better world for all of us no matter what colour, sexual preference, or religion you choose. God made you and this is who you are meant to be. Life lessons are hard but together we can make a difference. Let’s make a happier world for all and change peoples opinons on all counts.


Prayer:
Gracious spirit I feel your immense energy as I connect with you, the loving energy that I feel is so loving and heart warming that it truly lifts my soul and and spirit. The power of this energy feels strong and yet gentle, this beautiful energy is amazing and we feel privileged to feel it. We ask for healing to be given for all those named within the healing book and in our thoughts. We thank you for helping us to reach out and help others and especially those who feel isolated and fearful at this time. Please send healing to those in need and allow us to reach out to them in whatever way we can. We trust and believe in you now and always.
Amen.

Reading: By Silver Birch “What a glorious message we have for your world of matter - a message that makes men free and teaches them to rejoice in their divine heritage; a message that teaches them to throw off shackles and bonds; a message that teaches them to rejoice in the fullness of spiritual knowledge; a message that shows them how to live not only on the planes of matter but on the planes of spirit; a message that brings them beauty, love and wisdom, understanding, truth and happiness; a message that speaks of service, service, service.” “Your world is in beauty now. You see all around you the manifestations of the Great Spirit, as the dawn of life sweeps over your surroundings again in its cycle, and you marvel at the beauty of the blossom and the fragrance of the flowers, and you say, ‘How great is the handiwork of the Great Spirit’.” “And yet, that which you see is but a very, very pale reflection of the beauties that we have in our world of spirit. We have flowers such as you have never seen, we have colours such as you have never beheld, we have scenes and forests, we have birds and plants, we have streams and mountains. You have nothing to compare them with, and you will be able to enjoy them, for, even though you will be ghosts, you will be real ones.” “Your world of matter is so slow and thick. It is so ponderous and heavy that inspiration is lost in transmission, in the endeavour to slow down the higher and more subtle vibrations of spirit. Yours is a dark, clammy world compared with the world of light where I live.”



Address:
The pour beauty of  this world is a mirror image of the Spirit world which is very close to your word. There are multiple layers of the spirit world, and the one's closer to Earth and what you call Heaven, have many layers or levels and they are so vast in their expance. The lower layers or levels are mainly people who have been very selfish in life and so remain with like minded people this is there spirit realm, and only when they suddenly feel this is no longer how they want to exist it is then when they move up into another dimension or layer. You create your own heaven or hell, on how you have lived your life but not just that, it is how you think and feel, they all have there consequences.
If you have been honest and a truly genuine person in mind and spirit then you will go to a like minded dimension, others who have been reincarnated numerous times and been through many lives and learned many lessons will go to a higher dimension, but ultimately you will go to a place that makes you happy even if it is hell. There is no hell as such only your own hell that you have created but is that your own personal heaven? Either way you will be happy until you find you are not actually happy and then you will move on to another dimension, this is how the spiritual laws work, you create your own heaven and some will say it sounds like hell, but to you its perfect until you look around and see how horrible it all is and then you will subconsciously move onto a higher dimension
But if you have done the best you can and truly repented for all your sins then you wil go to your heavon but really are they sins? is is it a genetic disorder you have or a hormonal or a mental disorder? Which causes you to do the things you do, then it is not your fault and Spirit know this already and so you will go to the perfect dimension which is your heaven. Mind body and Spirit is the key to heaven all of which is how you live your life and how you live it. Be good and kind and think good thoughts.




Good morning and welcome to the written service for 20th June 18, 2021

“Happy Father’s day” to all those wonderful dads out there.

Gracious spirit let us be reminded that our own energy is so precious and vital, let us remember that we can take control of our own energy and not allow ourselves to be drained. We are very special and more powerful than we know, please allow us to open ourselves up to our full potential and know the powerful energy of your love. We feel your loving embrace and know you are always with us in mind, body and Spirit.
Amen


Reading:

“Let go of the people who are not prepared to love you. This is the hardest thing you will have to do in your life and it will also be the most important thing. Stop having hard conversations with people who don’t want to change. Stop showing up for people who have no interest in your presence. I know your instinct is to do everything to earn the appreciation of those around you, but it’s a boost that steals your time, energy, mental and physical health. When you being to fight for a life with joy, interest and commitment, not everyone will be ready to follow you in this place. This doesn’t mean you need to change what you are, it means you should let go of the people who aren’t ready to accompany you. If you are excluded or ignored by the people you give your time to, you don’t do yourself a favour by continuing to offer your energy and your life. The Truth is that you are not for everyone and not everyone is for you. That’s what makes it so special when you meet people who reciprocate love. You will know how precious you truly are. The more time you spend trying to make yourself loved by someone who is unable to, the more time you waste depriving yourself of the possibility of this connection to someone else. There are billions of people on this planet and many of them will meet at your level of interest and commitment. The more you stay involved with people who use you as a pillow, a background therapist for emotional healing, the longer you stay away from the community you want.

Maybe if you stop showing up, you won’t be wanted. Maybe if you stop trying the relationship will end. Maybe if stop texting your phone will stay dark for weeks. That doesn’t mean you ruined the relationship, it means the only thing holding you back was the energy that only you gave to keep it. This is not love, its attachment. It’s wanting to give a chance to those who don’t deserve it. You deserve so much, there are people who should not be in your life. The most valuable thing you have in your life is your time and energy, and both are limited. When you give your time and energy, it will define your existence. When you realize this, you begin to understand why you are so anxious when you spend time with people, in activities, places or situations that don’t suit you and shouldn’t be around you, your energy is stolen. You will begin to realize that the most important thing you can do for yourself and for everyone around you is protect your energy more fiercely than anything else. Make your life is a safe haven, in which only “Compatible” people allowed. You are not responsible for saving anyone. You are not responsible for saving anyone. You are not responsible for convincing them to improve. It’s not your work to exist for people and give your life to them! If you feel bad, if you feel compelled, you will be the root of all your problems, fearing that they will return the favours you have granted. It’s you obligation to realize that you are the love of your destiny and accept the love you deserve. Decide that you deserve true friendship, commitment, true and complete love with healthy and prosperous people. Then wait and see how much everything begins to change. Don’t waste time with people who are not worth it. Change will give you the love, the esteem, happiness and the protection you deserve.

That reading was posted on Sir Anthony Hopkins FB page and it is so real and really made me think. Our energy can so easily be zapped from heavy chores to illnesses even the weather can make us feel tired, but when your energy is drained by an “emotional vampire” it is completely different as this can effect every part of you, mind body and Spirit. This can impact us so much more than everyday things. Without knowing it you can be listening to someone and as they are pouring there heart out to you but, how many times has this person told you the same story over and over again. This is where we can be drained and for you own sake you have to draw a line, you have empathy for them and you have listened and helped them all you can, but at some point if you don’t stop this ongoing drama you will become ill and feel exhausted and really not know why. This has personally happened to me with my mum, mum was always bringing the past up and couldn’t let go of it, before I left her house I would feel so tired and drained and yet my mum would jump up and get ready to go to work happy and laughing as she had pulled my energy from me which made her feel much better but she didn’t do it intentionally, this is a emotional vampire. I became very ill and developed arthritis and every time I started to feel better I would visit my mum and the pain and stiffness would set in, I couldn’t figure this out for the longest time, but one day I said to her, I cant listen to this anymore I’m tired of the same stories over and over again, either let go of the past or do something about it of course this lasted a day or two then straight back to the same thing. I knew I had to make a change as I know she wasn’t going to. When I moved to Canada within 3 months of being away from my mum, my arthritis went completely and I had so much energy I couldn’t believe the change in me and then I realized what had been happening for so many years. When people can’t let go of the past it can be because they don’t really want to let go they have gone on for years carrying this with them and it would feel strange without this but that is what needs to happen and they just don’t realize how free they would feel. It’s so sad but it is there lesson not yours and if they are not willing to let go then you can’t help them and you have done all you can. It can be the hardest thing to let go of the past when you have been hurt so much but you are still hurting yourself by living through it time and again. When you are Spiritual especially and you can be so open to energy it is important that you protect you energy, one way I do it is to imagine you building a brick wall around yourself getting higher and higher and make it solid, this will stop the drainage of your energy plus you will actually see it in there face and body language that they really don’t know what’s happening and so they will either say “Oh I have to go now or they will change the subject. I have done this multiple times and it works. Please know that this is important for your own health and wellness, you can be there for other’s but recognize when its time to let go, this is your lesson and theirs is to let go. Remember we all energy filled with love and our lights shine like beacons in the darkness. Remember your special too and you deserve so much more that life can offer you. Rev Janine Grey

Good Morning and welcome to the written service for 16th May:
Please join me in prayer:
Gracious Spirit as we join together mind body and Spirit let us open ourselves up to your loving light and bask in all your glory, allowing our higher selves to connect with you and all our loved one's who have passed, we ask that they join us and that we feel their loving presence. Let us let go of all the negative feelings that we have accumulated over this past week, allowing healing to take place during this time together. Please send healing to those who have been on our minds and in our prayer's, we know that healing will take place in many different ways and we trust in your loving energy knowing that all that can be done will be done. We thank you as always. Amen

Reading:
Change is a natural process but not accepted well, but change comes anyway no matter how hard it is to face, feeling comfortable in a routine makes you feel content and safe but to what purpose, standing still does not allow growth or Spiritual development, but impedes your growth. Changing how you think can help you move forward and not stay stagnant, by taking that one step forward and having the faith to embrace the changes taking place is a true blessing not just for you but others around you.
You will feel free more than ever by trusting your Father and listening to your Spirit within as this will give you the strength to let go and and trust in the divine plan which has been designed for all. By allowing change you will inspire others to take that step too and together you are strong in mind body and Spirit. When you are in complete harmony you synchronize with the Spirit world and Great Spirit, becoming one with your creator is the most beautiful and enlightening life you can live.
Once you have taken this brave step, you will motivate many more people around you and together you all move forward and feel the benefits of a more healthier you, not just in your physical self but deep within your Soul. Be strong and trust in the divine plan, know that Spirit will not let you fall but will be by your-side to hold you up even carry you when needed. Embrace change and trust in Spirit as we will be with you every step of the way. Allow yourselves to feel this mighty freedom of true faith, let go and trust and you will be a driving force to inspire your own true self and others around you. From Spirit through Rev Janine Grey

Address: As so many changes have taken place in your world but do you wonder have you changed yourself? Do you feel any different, do you think any differently about yourself or life in general. This life that can be taken for granted has changed so much and still changing now. Have you taken the time to know yourself better, and have you adjusted to the changes. Life has so many twists and turns and history proves there have been major disruptions over many years, but people have adapted over time. It has never been easy but the changes always have had a good outcome. During times of war, people were fearful of the unknown and this is understandable, but acts of humanity came forth and people helped each other with the little they had. People looked after each other and helped to rebuild their lives. Your world has undertaken so much and yet here you all are, still coping and helping where and when you can, still rebuilding and adjusting physically and mentally. We know from history there have been many moments of great compassion and love because the need to help heal others helps to heal ourselves but not only that, you have a deep and profound love for one another as this is part of who you truly our your spiritual selves. True love for one another goes so deep that you don't even think about it as you are compelled to help those around you who are in need of your compassion which is a true and genuine love and how beautiful is that. Through the world's darkest times comes a huge change to humanity and people pull together and work hard to overcome these terrible times. Through all of this many lessons are learned not just about yourself but those around you, the Spirit world knows that you all have free will which is a gift from the divine. What happens to the world is manly man made and for which you suffer the consequences but from those disasters comes a working together a building of trust and love prevails. From the darkest times the light will always find a way to break through the darkness and keep making breaking through until there is no darkness only light, you are the light and have the capability to break through yourselves, this happens when an outpouring of true compassionate love overwhelms the negative energy and you yourselves prevail, the Spirit world is behind you all the way but you have to that first step first. This pandemic will change the world once more but you will see and be the light within the dark, have faith in God and the universe but most importantly it has to start with you, you are the light a spark from the divine, remember this and your inner strength will pull you through and the world itself will heal once more, God is with you every step of the way, take that step be brave, you are never walking this path alone, you never have and never will. Light up your world around you and the world will follow that loving and most powerful light. Love is the light and the light is love, this is you and you are loved. Thank you Rev Janine Grey





Our written service for Sunday 2nd May Please join us for the opening prayer: Opening Prayer Infinite Spirit, Creator of All Life, we give thanks this day for all Your love, creativity and encouragement as we journey through this time of challenges and changes. Help us to remember that Your Love has created each one of us and that change and challenges give us opportunities for our souls to grow on so many levels. May we remember that we are all walking through this together andshould strive to encourage each other to not get caught up in fear and frustration of what seems to be an endless stream of challenges. Thank you for the eyes to see the beauty of nature all around us, the ears to hear the music in the sounds of nature and the senses to feel the magnetic energy from nature so we can be uplifted by all of these. Help us to recognize the big and small efforts of the many people who strive every day to look after our needs, even when it could be endangering their own health. We are thankful for the knowledge that Your power and the love and care of friends in spirit is always supporting us, even when we are not aware of it. May your Love and Healing energy touch every soul, the animal kingdom and all of nature as we move forward in our life's journey. AMEN Inspired by Spirit through Rev. Patricia Gunn. It is very easy at this time to get caught up in your own thoughts , fears and frustrations. It may be about the pandemic or other people's actions or opinions in connection with it or even the restrictions around it. We would ask that you stop and think about the fact that you are all individuals with free will, and yet you are all connected by the love of our Creator . You are one big family and justas family members don't always agree, they often still support one another-you pray for each other's well being and hope that they will get through their own challenges. Personal Responsibility is about your response to life-not judging someone else's response..We say to you, listen and learn what you can but also listen with your soul-that inner voice that is not caught up in fear. The spirit world is always working to inspire all those on earth who are trying to find the best ways to keep you healthy-body , mind and spirit. All the world's inventions great art, music, booksand innovations have been inspired by spirit to help make the world a better place. They do their best to get the information through to those on earth who will use to for the benefit of those who need medications, vaccines, medical devices and better equipment. They are not concerned if someone makes some monetary gain, as long as the help is given to the people who need it. It is important for each of you to take care of your physical, mental and spiritual health as best you can but also recognize that sometimes you also need extra help from medications and vaccines. Remember that we are one family and needto show compassion and generosity both materially and spiritually to others. Look after yourself but also the family of the rest of the world. Do not blame any country or culture for the pandemic-it a global problem -send prayers to all people on earth that they find the strength and help they need .Be kind to yourself and others. Notice the kindnesses of others. Many doctors, nurses, caregivers and support staff are exhausted. Let them and others who are workingso your life is a bit easier, know you appreciate them. Love is the greatest power of all so let your light shine in your compassion for the whole world and remember that you are not walking this journey alone. Everyone has a chance for soul growth at this time so look for the positive things that are happening as well as noticing the sad things. God and the spirit world are walking with each one of you every step of the way -no person

Let us remind ourselves that when we look at nature and it pleases you, then think of yourself and those around you with the same pleasure as we are one. please let us feel your loving presence and guiding light now and always.

"Who are you" by Silver Birch

“Who are you? do you know? You know just that facet that is expressed through your body, but that is only the pin point as distinct from the larger life which is beyond it.” “When you say you would like to find out which is you and which is not you, you have to begin by discovering which is you altogether. Do you think that you have in this earthly life expressed anything but a tiny segment of your whole self? And do you think that the consciousness that is registered now is anything but a tiny fraction of the greater, complete consciousness that is you?” “How are you to decide then which is your thought, your imagination, and which is the impression, the guidance which comes from your larger self or from higher realms that are using you?” “You must get the proper perspective.

You must realize that you are spiritual beings expressing yourselves through physical bodies and that the spirit is the supreme part of you. The spirit is the higher, the body is the lower. The spirit is the master, the body is the servant. The spirit is king, the body is the subject. The spirit is that part of you which is divine.” “It is the self-same spirit which has created, devised and fashioned the whole universe. You have in embryo, in miniature, in microcosm, all the vast powers that belong to what you call God. If you would allow this innate divine strength to rise to the surface, to dominate your lives, you would banish every care, anxiety and worry, because you would know that there is nothing that could happen in your world over which you could not triumph. That is what you have to learn. It is not easy.” “Give attention to your body as the house in which you live. But it is only the house, it is not you. Being the house, it must be kept in good condition, in good repair, so that the tenant can be amply looked after. But always remember it is only the house; it is not the tenant.” “That same power which fashioned the universe is the power which is responsible for life. Life is not physical or material, life is spirit, and spirit is life. Wherever there is life there is spirit and where there is spirit there is life.” “The power, which is you, is the power which is life and you have a kinship with the Great Spirit that enables you to participate in all the infinite processes of creation. You can call it up any time you so desire from the well of your own being - the tremendous power of the spirit that is resident within you, that is capable of giving you a dynamic, a vitality, and of sustaining you.” “You have a task to perform. You will imbibe this knowledge and you will use it to help others. You will develop the gifts of the spirit yourself and when you have done so you will become a little lighthouse that sheds the beams of truth to weary souls still in the darkness. When you do that you will fulfill the purpose of your existence.” “There is a plan into which we all fit and that will operate with the consent of your free will. There is a saying in the East that when the pupil is ready the master appears. When you are spiritually ready the door will open. You will not have to ask. The door will open so wide that you will walk through it and the task will begin.” “We can never promise that your life will be free from problems, perplexity, or even pain. We can promise that within yourself you will find the means to overcome all handicaps and disabilities. As you strive to express the highest, the deepest, the greatest within yourself, so you will attract to your aid those beings from our world who love you, who desire to help you, and through you help others.”

“Alas, there are too many who live encompassed by swirling mists of darkness, whose shoulders groan under the weight of their load and who know not where to turn, sick in body, mind and soul. These are the ones we must always try to help.” “We would be failing in our purpose if we were to declare that the task of spiritual attainment is easy and that those who, in any measure, would attempt to spread light where there is darkness will meet with an easy task. It could never be so. The whole of history is against it, for truth and error have been engaged in a dreadful warfare that will not cease until infinite perfection can be achieved and that, in the very nature of the case, is unattainable. It is a long and difficult and toilsome struggle in which we are engaged.” “You do not realize the prejudice, opposition, hostility, antagonism, misrepresentation, superstition and deliberate attack that will have to be faced, I do not say these things to daunt you, but to place any quest in its proper setting. I know how difficult it is.” “I have had to overcome, with all the power at my command, almost insuperable obstacles to reach your world, and I am not alone in this. I am one of those who elected to return because it was seen that the calamities which man would bring on himself were of so awesome a character that unless the power of the spirit could effect its bridgeheads everywhere, man would destroy himself physically and the world in which he lives.” “Wonderful though man measures his material achievements, spiritually he is still very puny. Oh that the achievements of the spirit could match the achievements of matter, that progress could be made in fields of the mind and spirit that are comparable with the advance that has been made in certain fields of material endeavour!” “Because man is not spiritually led he is in danger of blowing himself up with forces that he is not entitled to have at his command. All our efforts are directed, wherever channels can be found, towards the single purpose of ensuring that the spiritual truths upon which the whole of life are founded should be the basis by which man everywhere builds his life.” “All jealousies and bickering, all strife and fratricide, all war and chaos, all envy, greed and malice can be driven from the earth. Compassion, kindness, gentleness, amity and co-operation can be the principles by which men rule everywhere because of the recognition of their common spiritual nature. There is a bright side. It is not a picture of unrelieved gloom, because amid such obstacles and difficulties any step forward is great progress. If you can help only one soul to be comforted when all seems drear, dark and dismal, then it has all been worth while. And you can help far more than one.”

“The prizes of the spirit are not easy to be won, otherwise they would not be worth winning. If the victor makes no effort, what is his victory? If you can scale peaks without labour, what have you attained? It is the very essence of the case that spiritual attainment must be a lonely, solitary path that gets more and more isolated the farther you reach because you have to leave familiar landmarks behind.” Emphasizing that wherever an effort is made by any human being on earth, at least an equal, and usually a greater effort is put forth from the Other Side, Silver Birch stressed: “It is always true that any sincere request for spiritual help can never fail. You open yourself to this aid the moment you make this magnetic link with the world of spirit. It is very hard sometimes to find language that will convey the actuality of spiritual happenings because language, which is material, is not equal to the spiritual, which is immaterial. Words, at the best, are poor symbols to interpret a much greater reality.” “When you accept this knowledge it means your soul is ready; it has come into its own. So many people are unconscious of their higher nature, which is the reality and the mainspring of their existence. They do not understand that the reason they exist is because they are spiritual beings expressing themselves through material bodies.” “Even though they believe they have a soul or a spirit, they think of themselves in terms of a body with a spirit, whereas they are spirits with bodies. The real you is the spirit - the soul, the divine, the eternal.” “The body is fashioned to serve its purpose. It has a temporary existence in this form. When it has done its task, it crumbles away. But the spirit that incarnates at birth that is important. The fact that you can receive this knowledge means that the divine has awakened within you. You have burst the bonds. The seed has begun to flower. It has forced its way up from the darkness into the light. And it will grow in beauty and richness as you allow it to do so.” “Then you begin to exercise true harmony of being which is the fundamental purpose of life on Earth. Those who go through your life without allowing the spiritual nature to have its complete and proper exercise are just as handicapped as the physically blind, deaf and mute.” “Your spiritual nature has come into its own. The divine has been awakened. It is an index that points to the fact that you have reached that stage in your development when you are ready to obtain from life, not that which exists only on the surface, but all the richness that belongs only to the spirit. The riches of the spirit are far greater, far more beautiful, far more lustrous than all the gems of your world. They will endure long after the others have tarnished and rusted and decayed.” “

Once the soul comes into its own it realizes its powers. These are part of the mightiest forces in the universe. You begin to make a channel through which help, guidance, inspiration, sustenance and wisdom can reach you from our world. This not only enables the ones who love you and who are tied by blood to come close, but others, who are in no way physically related. They have a spiritual relationship which is even more important. These draw closer and seek to bring their power to bear and help you in your lives.” “As this power obtains lodgment and builds itself up, so you become the possessor of that which the world can never give or take away, a rock based on confidence, calmness, resolution. Then you know beyond all doubt that there is nothing in the whole world that can disturb the real you, and that you are at one with the power which fashioned the whole of life. “Men and women devote all their efforts to gain baubles and possessions far beyond what they need and sacrifice the eternal realities, which are the greatest assets the human being can have. Wherever you can, drop the seed. If you meet with rebuff, take no notice. Do not argue, do not attempt to become missionaries. You cannot force the seed to grow on barren soil. In the fullness of time some of these seeds will begin to take root. Those who have scoffed and ridiculed will come to you for help because they need it.” “The tie that binds us together is the tie of divinity. It encircles us all and holds us in an embrace of divine love. Nothing can happen throughout the universe to weaken that affectionate embrace as long as we are true and loyal to that which has been revealed to us.” The Great Spirit will not fail us. We must not fail the Great Spirit. The whole of life pursues its course following ordained paths. The earth rotates on its axis, the tides ebb and flow, the stars and planets wheel across the sky following their charted course, the seasons come and go as part of the eternal cycle. The seeds grow and bloom and die, only to bloom again. Birds of diverse hues sing their cheerful notes, trees nod in the breeze, everywhere life obeys the law of which it is a part.” “We cannot put ourselves outside that divine ambit; we are part of it. Let us remember, wherever we may be, that the cloak of infinite love is wrapped around us, the divine arms enfold us and we are always in the presence of that power that made us part of itself.”

Address:

Its very comforting to here the words from Silver Birch and a reminder of how strong we are spiritually, I sometimes forget this as the human body can let us down in various ways and so we forget how strong the Spirit within really is. Most is in our minds as the mind can control so much of our physical body and can cause so much harm to ourselves. We know some things are genetic but there is so much that our mind can take over one big thing is depression and anxiety which I suffer with, thankfully not all the time. Some people give up as their mind runs wild and controls their emotions and feelings. But the words of Silver Birch are a strong reminder of who we truly are and expressed in such a way that I am in awe of him and blown away. His words have lifted me and made me more determined to help and care for those around me who are in the dark and need our help, those who are drawn to our Church or our social media group looking for something and finding what they are looking for. I feel so much stronger in myself and feel a bond with all of nature and it’s beautiful in all its glory. It’s a reminder that I feel has come at a time that we needed to be reminded of, and who we truly are. I hope you feel the same way that I do and his words have lifted you too. Yes the spiritual path is not an easy one but we are stronger than some and we will carry on doing what is needed to help all of humanity and ourselves to an ultimate reality that we are all part of each other and the divine who created us.I thank Silver Birch for his words and the enlightenment that continues to this very day. I truly do feel blessed to be a Minister and a Medium and I hope you feel stronger and uplifted too. Sending love to all.
