Seaford Spiritualist Church Live
Have you ever wondered what a spiritualist church service is all about?
Have you ever wanted to receive a mediumship reading?
But been apprehensive about attending a spirtitualist church service.
It seems that throughout the ages, we as human beings, have always wondered about the mysteries of life and death, we have asked questions about such topics as:
- There must be more to the human experience than just who we are in the here and now?
- Do we survive death?
- What is the truth about our soul?
- Is there a conscious aspect of ourselves that can communicate long after our physical bodies have been laid to rest?
You are so much more that you have come to know.
To believe in something, and not to live it is dishonest.

Our bodies are carbon which must serve the master of time, It must follow the natural cycle of birth, life aging and death. It seems that as physical beings we are governed by planetary forces, like
Gravity, Electromagnetism, and the cycles of day and night, high and low tides, governed by the moon and the sun. There is no escaping this, or denying it. We can scientifically prove this, which is reinforced by our own personal experiences.
Perhaps we should ask the question
- What separates us from all the other life forms on earth?
The answer must surely be consciousness, but more importantly individual consciousness
Harry Edward's Prayer
May I be thankful for all the blessings I already have. Grant me relief from pain and sickness, protect me from all ills and grant me good health in the days to come.
Remove all causes of imperfection and bring Thy Healing Ministers close to me that I may be conscious of their presence and so receive guidance and inspiration.
Grant me courage and fortitude to overcome all adversity. let me be conscious of Thy strength in all time of need. Grant me confidence to overcome my fears and not to anticipate harm.
Teach me, how to live rightly in Thy sight, to do only that which is right and true. I pray that good guidance and right influencing will inspire all Thy peoples to be as brothers, one to the other, and that peace shall endure for all time. Amen
Human Beings and the Separation Experience
We as human beings can separate ourselves from all other life forms. In fact we have done it so completely that we have come to see ourselves as separate entities from the very planet itself.
We no longer connect with the earth on a daily bases, we separate ourselves from the food chain, and our part in its growth and harvest. Is it any wonder that we no longer conceive ourselves as being a part of this natural cycle?
We manufacture appliances and materials as a way to ever expand our technological boundaries, creating separation and distance between ourselves and what we have come to fear, which we associate as lower life forces.
We fear these lower life forces, because we no longer understand them or identify with them.
This is an artificial environment, it can only create separation and barriers between the human race and all other life forms on earth. This separation reinforces and promotes forgetfulness of what we truthfully are, we are animals, mammals to be exact, we are subject to all the same natural forces as every other living organism on earth.
And yet there is a fine line that does separate us from our animal cousins, that fine line was once described by Gregg Braden in his workshop video, Beyond Zero Point he described this separation as the place between the worlds where the skins get really thin.
Where one realm of existence can touch, influence and enlighten all of mankind, even if we can't consciously comprehend its influence. This skin is the single thing that separates us all from each other as well as the earth and all life forms and that is our understanding of individuality, as being a separate force within creation, of beating to your own drum. It is the knowledge that you have a life purpose, as well as a soul purpose. That you are an individual and the divide between human being and the animal kingdom is that you have the ability to perceive yourself as a separate and individual entity, this is your identity, which must come to know the self as a separate aspect of group consciousness, while being an intricate part and a product of the social structure within the group. You can imagine a future for yourself, you are self aware, and can understand how you feel.
There is no one on earth that is like you, that can see the world the way you do, that can assign the different levels of importance within your life, categorizing your desires, and that can embrace your values, morals and ethical codes of conduct as you do. You are you.
I believe that this encompasses every aspect of who you are, that everything that you have ever experienced, every emotional reaction, either good, bad or indifferent is woven in the fabric of time, and that experience becomes the template of your spirit.
This is the individual aspect of your spirit, this is the aspect of the self that wants to make a connection with you, using a spiritualist medium to communicate through, when life in the physical body can no longer sustain your soul.
No matter what you do with your life, no matter what you experience throughout your life, your experiences are the language of your soul, and this is what your loved one comes to communicate with you.
This is why for eternity we have all been seeking answers to lives mysteries, because we have all been a part of this cosmic wheel, being born, maturing and experiencing, and then dying and being reborn into eternal life.
We embrace our true self not as an individual but as one part of the entire universe, we incarnate into the physical world to experience this gift of separation, and within this gift we are scripted to forget who we truly are, for that small time which we call our physical life.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies.
My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness. Dalai Lama
