Hi daisy... I'm a Spiritualist; in fact I've been to a Spiritualist service this very evening! :smile:

My grandfather, who I never knew in the physical, was a Spiritualist, so I had always been vaguely aware of Spiritualism and what it was about. He, my grandfather, got into it after his son (my uncle) was shot down and killed in the war. Apparently there was good communication between them through various mediums.

Anyway, about three years ago I started feeling that "things were happening" on the spiritual front so I started going to the local Spiritualist church. I was beginning to feel more sensitive, more empathetic and began thinking more about the universe and how I fitted into it.

Strangely enough, only within the last few days I've decided to start sitting in a circle to really try and develop whatever abilities I might have. Up till now I've often been able to sense spirit, but can't make out who it is or what they might be trying to say. About 18 months ago I did Reiki level one, and I think that has awakened things on the energy front too, and I'm now considering doing level two.

I often natter away to my spirit friends whenever I feel that they're around, even though I can't hear what they're saying in reply. They probably think I'm barmy!

How about you daisy, what's your take on it all?


Love and Light,
Jeremy :cool:

daisy 25-09-2006 12:16 AM

hiya jeremy, i just didn't know where else to go really, good on you for joining a circle by the way, let me know how you get on, it's good to talk as they say, they do hear us. it's the only religion that 'makes sense' to me if you know what i mean, daisy

psychic sue 25-09-2006 12:08 PM

I'm a spiritualist too - although I practice in my own way. I wrote an article and made a diary about my beliefs for BBC Faith website - have a look if you get a chance and are interested.

I used to sit in circle but don't at the moment. Looking for a closed circle - there doesn't seem to be one around here.

Nice to meet others of the same thinking!

daisy 26-09-2006 01:50 AM

hiya sue it's very difficult to find a closed circle they tend to be kept quiet for some reason don't they? might just pop in and look at that, and it is good to meet like minded people

mikron 26-09-2006 02:06 AM

I think its great to be in a circle to share insights as to the whole world being a better place to live ! I have many groups I am part of locally and I am a dj on FM radio in new england USA on sunday mornings where we discuss ascension realted topics !


Namaste mikron

psychic sue 26-09-2006 06:26 AM

Yes, I have been in a couple of closed circles before (many years ago) but I think you have to wait to be invited. I have got a new friend who is an accomplished medium so perhaps I can sneak a bit of training from him, hee hee.

Im a spiritualist, my father is a buddhist from Thailand, and my mother is Irish, so I was raised to grow into my own soul. I am grateful for that,...I have a practice called spiritual wellness studio,..and work with woman and children through healing arts....its amazing what children can see,...it keeps me young and connected to the light,....

FRANK789 20-10-2006 02:08 AM

I'm Spiritual, but even after all these years I get what I call (walkins's).
When your involved with a person your seeing for, suddenly some living soul or one who has passed or not yet born walks in and sit's down and begins to ask questions. It can be a sitting president, a future movie star, a baker or an indian chief. Does anyone else get walkins and if so, how do you deal with them in a way as not to offend ???

Lovin Syrnrgy 20-10-2006 06:22 AM

I am very much into my spirituality, and it happen over a long four hour talk at the beach with a close friend. I was rasied Catholic but we didn't go by the book we just believe in god and went to church. I didn't understand the religion so I just said I believe in god. Until four years ago when the talk happen my mind was opened and I was able to understand the the connection with everything. Ever since I have pages and drawings of my new understanding...it was wonderful how spiritual information just flowed through me. It seem like ever day I was learning more about people's and nature's inner soul and the energy that lies within everything. I started to get in tuned with stones and the magical healing powers, the power of air and water that keeps us alive. I even had a tree expericence where I was in the worst stated of mind and as I layed on the grass outside of a friends house I looked up at a tree and as the wind blew its branches and leaves seem to release this funny nrg and which it made my tears into giggles and gave me a sense of peace. I was fine after that, now I can feel nature's nrg. I can go on and on and tuss me I will..

Any chance that I get to talk about spiritulity and our connections I take that time to help people remember what they forgot..

lumas 20-10-2006 07:51 PM

Hi daisy i am a spiritulist and i suppose it all started around the ageof 14, my mother always said i had certain abilities and that i had gifts she had already been sitting in a circle for some time and was very phsycic i started to ask questions about what she did and what it was all about she asked me if i wanted to know more and took me along to a spiritualist church where i saw other people recieving evidence of survival from loved ones.

That was it i was hooked and it was then that i joined our beloved circle and recieved evidence from my father who i lost in a tragic traffic accident when i was just seven from that day that my plans were made and i was going to be a medium and help people in thier berievement by giving them the evidence they needed to give them hope and to just know that there was something else other than this life.

well im still learning still developing and still in the same circle which has now moved on to become working/rescue circle its pysically and mentaly draining but the end results are out of this world (litterally) and i love it ive had many wonderful experiences and been told that it is only the tip of the iceburg bring it on!!!!

~Jay~ 20-10-2006 07:57 PM

I'd love to hear more about the work you do with your circle, lumas. Rescue work is something I'm very interested in doing, once I've developed my own skills a bit more.:wink:

You're doing such a worthwhile job! :smile:

Nighttemplar 23-10-2006 11:39 PM

Hi Daisy
I was hooked about 5 years ago--yes 'hooked'.
I was the original 'Doubting Thomas' I enjoyed tearing apart the dogma of most religeons. Many years ago I was asked to leave a Bible reading class--I was raising too many awkward questions.

Then 5+ years ago I had one of those life crises, and visited a 'fortune teller'. Spoke to her 3 times in all and found she helped sort my problem-this was July/Aug. By Easter my life was back on track, so I went back to thank her for her help. She had gone and to this day do not know where she is. Her name was 'Polly'.
She had mentioned the local spiritualist church,so thought I might find her there or someone who would know where she was. I was made so welcome and they sing such wonderful songs, I kept going. I was fascinated by the medium bit , giving messages-some so trivial! After my 4th visit I still had not figured out how the medium was doing it, when she came to me. The messgae was simple "Albert and George wished to be remembered to me. They were brothers, more than brothers , brothers in arms. They still thought I was a 'bonny wee lad'."
Haha I left that night swearing never to return--I knew no Albert or a George--what a load of rubbish!!
I spoke to my Mother the next day, recounting the 'funny' message. She paused then said but your Grandfathers brothers were Albert and George. They had returned from WW1 unscathed in body but not in mind. They got into all sorts of trouble and would eventually have gone to prison. They emigrated to Australia and were forgotten as 'black sheep' by the family
When I was 2 we were staying with my Fathers parents awaiting to move into our fist house. Albert and George visited for 4 weeks, they never again returned to England. They spent their nights drinking and their days taking me out. And yes they referred to me as the 'bonny wee lad'.
You dont get any more emphatically hooked than that--I have travelled a long path these last five years--Doubting Thomas is lost for words!
I still do have one question--why did spirit 'hook' me so late in life??????
Hope that is of some use to you dear lady Peter xxx

daisy 23-10-2006 11:59 PM

hey nighttemplar if you look back and i mean really look back you'll see they 'hooked' you a long time ago.
i've just recognised this for myself. i love the spiritualist churches (apart from the singing lol) i was 'hooked' myself for a long time used to go up to 3 times a week, thomas, doubt no more xxx

kundalini 24-10-2006 12:02 AM

Hi Nighttemplar,

I found your story to be most interesting and that question you asked at the end I would like to address. In my opinion, spirituality operates a lot with the issue of faith and you stated that you were a doubting thomas. Working on that assumption, I would say the reason spirit took so long to 'hook' you was because upto that point you had never truly believed but by going to the spiritualist church you were showing the possibility of believing in spirit and so they...'hooked' you.

Hope that helps,

Kundalini.

Nighttemplar 24-10-2006 08:53 AM

Hi Kundalini
I was being very kind to my former self when using the phrase 'Doubting Thomas'. I hated and loathed all organised religion, saw it as the shackles of reason. I remember watching the film 'Mission' and then researching it's authenticity. I felt such anger towards the established churches for what they had done.
I was more than doubting thomas I was a crusader against all religion, christianity in particular. I was wasting my talents and required a big kick up the backside--I got it!!!!
Peter

daisy 30-10-2006 01:07 AM

we all need a kick up the backside from time to time, and usually get it too lol, i understand your feelings towards religion though i was brought up as an atheist

kundalini 30-10-2006 01:11 AM

I had forgotten about this thread!

Interesting point nighttemplar and I too understand your stance towards organised religion. Me myself have no religion but spiritual leanings...I would describe myself as a spiritualist.

Kundalini.

angelrealms 02-11-2006 06:41 AM

hi ya all
i am a spiritualist, mine started when i was born,lol, when i was about 5/6yrs old i used to be woken by somebody sitting on my bed, this went on for yrs, and it frightened the live out of me, i would scream the house down, i would just be sitting doing nothing and someone would walk pass me, i would tell my mother but she never believed me, i would hear people talking to me asking me to help them, but no one else could hear them, all my family thought i was mad, myself included,since i was a young child i have drawn angels they always have a child with them, i have seen a angel, not one with white wings and a white gown, it was the most awesome thing i have ever seen in my life, i have always known spirit is around us since i was so young,i now feel at this point in my life i am being drawn to something else. so i just go with the flow and wait and see what happens, i have learnt spirit will not be rushed,

lee it is hard for mediums, most want to make a really good connection to spirit every time but this isn't always possible, like your readings the other night some were very good others weren't, it's the way it goes, it's ups and downs, but usually the person who truly needed the strongest message, such as your friend, usually gets it. did you 'truly need yours? hope that helps explain it a bit daisyxx

evelynlee333 07-11-2006 06:19 AM

purplemint 22-11-2006 12:07 AM

spiritualism
 
For me it has always been a part of my life, I just didn't chose to acknowledge it, for fear. It start with very vivid dreams which I had as a Child. about six years ago I started becoming curious about them,. Which lead to lots of reading and self exploration. From there I took classes in mediumship and joined a closed circle and attended a spiritual based church and several other types of groups. Through this process I continued to learn more about myself and connect with my Heart which resulted in releasing a lot of the EGO. From there it lead to a fasination with Mary Magdalene and I am now able to channel Mary. Who before 4 years ago I really had very little knowledge of. Spiritualism for me is connecting to your heart, soul, spirit which inturns connects you to the Universe and all the wonders and joy it has to offer thus the laws of Attraction.:hug3:

Third eye 22-11-2006 05:35 AM

Very correctly said purpl emint, get rid of your ego, have acceptance of yourself as you are and towards your life,have a feeling of letgo ,Do meditation which will fill your heart with love in return . that is all is spiritualism ,that is all about being religious

revpo 01-12-2006 12:28 AM

I find it interesting, but non existent of churches here, nearest one is 100 miles north of me, although I subscribe to the national spiritualist magazine finding it very interesting, and the study of spiritualism very interesting.

Mystfied 01-12-2006 03:06 AM

I just found out the other day we have a Spiritualist church,here where I live. So as soon as I find out where and when they hold there service I plan on joining.

violetmay 14-12-2006 12:48 PM

Mine started when I was 4, I had imaginary friends that were actually family members passed on.. as I grew older it susbsided a little, as my family were not into it and it was played down, and I was described as 'sensitive'. (and not in a nice way)... I was in my late teens when it happened again and more clearly, and I kept it quiet as I knew what my family would say. I learned my own things, and found my own way. When i got divorced I found a church, that had a circle and other stuff.. the circle was stuffy and 'established'...us newbies were not welcome.. so I joined other circles and found my own way. I am looking for a closed circle but they are secret and not always welcoming..

If there is anyone here from dorset... want to start our own?? Wouldn't need many members..I think for me that is the way to go.. to be part of a new one and be inviting to others..

anyway that's me.. season greetings by the way...xx

Daisy, the reading i had has now become fasinating to me, the reason being is that what i didn't mention in my post ,because i thought it would be irellevent, is that i was told that i'd be taking a holiday in Grand Caneria, now i dont even own a passport and never go abroad for an holiday, so i thought no not me.
Well i'm leaving home after xmas to share with my girlfriend who has recently told me that she is gonna get me a passport, and take me on holiday to Tenerife. When she mentioned that, i straight away thought of the spiritualist. I asked my girlfriend ' Tenerife.. is part of the Grand Caneria isn't it ? she said YES and i just felt all tingles over my head and down my legs and ankles etc. For something that i thought was irrellevent had now potential qualities.

The other fascinating part of this reading that i found out to my horror early hours this morning 3:30 am, is that i was also told about some plumbing that needed fixing..............i said to the spiritualist, i've got no trouble with plumbing at home. and i said what sort of plumbing, she said she can see pipes, i said nope all my pipes seem ok....and when i mentioned this to my wife, she said it may have been the blocked sink in the bathroom. Well it certainly weasn't the blocked sink.
We must have had a leak in the downstairs shoe cupboard for sometime because when my wife went downstairs she slipped on water all over the carpet that had come over a leaky boiler pipe situated in the shoe cupboard, and we had to call out an emergency plumber. It must have been leaking for sometime and got worse over night because lots of shoes had turned into mould.

So it seems like i did need this reading after all and has taken three weeks to make some sense of it

Lee 19-12-2006 02:10 PM

I visited the spitualist church again sunday night 17th dec, and had another fascinating reading. A friend of mine came through who had died in a car accident a few years back, but he didn't give his name. First he mentioned ...glad you got rid of the dodgy shoes, but you've still got a dodgy pair left you need to get rid of.........WELL if you go to my previous post, it mentions the pipe leak in the shoe cupboard that i had to clear out , because most of them went mouldy including old shoes i'd kept for years.

She said he wants you to look under your car bonnet because he is showing me those things that go up and down in holes, and they are just over the spark plugs..........i said "pistons" lol....she said yes but she's not very mechanical etc.....he said two of the pistons head gasket needs attention before it costs me too much money ' i mentioned the word gaskets' So i'm gonna get my mate to have a look soon......i'll let you know the outcome:wink:

he also said that i know someone with a dark car and this person has a passengers side wobbly wheel..........i asked some mate at work and one of them has a wobbly wheel, because he went down a ditch a couple of weeks back, he said "i aint gonna have an accident am i" i said no but you must sort it out.

he also said i'm sensitive to spirits 'that i am'
and i worry about money too much...i have been for sometime now
he told me told stop keep bloody worrying about money all the time

While you may not follow Spiritualism as such, they do welcome people to their circles. It might be a source to find some spiritually minded people. Just a thought...

Did you find the church? Where in Ontario? I am in Etobicoke (Toronto) and we have several here. It excites me to see someone close to home.

Mystfied 10-01-2007 11:26 PM

Hi Spiritalk
The church I found is in Orillia ,service is held every Sunday evening,because of other things happening I have not had the chance to attend yet.
But I was invited to a Circle last Thursday evening and that was quite an experience,I do look forward to attending more or maybe hosting one in my home if the oppertunity arises.

lee i had a reading once from a medium but rather than spirit communication as such he gave me a list of things he expected to happen for the future too i was saying 'no way is that going to happen' it took 5 years but everything was exactly as he said it would beisn't it great when it does :smile:

please do let me know lee, spirit don't always give names as other things they say is proof enough:wink: i struggle with names when i give readings quite often, yet other things are as clear as a bell, i'm glad you're getting something out of this, have you joined a group yet or are you just attending the services for now and what do you think of the philosophy:smile: (message too short???????:confused: )

hiya whitewing, your shop sounds great, isn't spiritual healing good, the church is a great place, will chat with you some more soon it seems we have much in common, take care xxx

Nomad 03-02-2007 12:16 AM

I suppose I am a spiritualist, it took a long time for me to call myself one, I am not keen on calling myself religious as I have always been somewhat skeptical of anything that I could not prove or see for myself.

I stumbled onto a spiritual site that claimed to give readings in a chatroom and basically went in to see how crazy these people were.
Within a year i had a rather shocking wake up call when I got the weirdest feelings that caused me to seek out medical advice ... :)

Looking back I laugh now, but it was my first introduction to feeling spirit, and it took me a good 6 months to accept what was happening, (very hard to go from a skeptic to someone claiming to feel spirit).

I am still very much a novice, but a keen student in mediumship, recently started looking into healing.
I have sat in circles, mainly online, I am quite a shy and nervous person so I have only sat in a handful of real life circles at a local church.

I am finding it to be a very slow and long road, and cannot yet claim to have any earth shattering visions of guides etc, but have managed a few readings for people that convinced me that it cannot all be my imagination.

It is good to find sites like these to know that I am not infact crazy, which I believed for some time ... :D
