R. I. P. ??????

09.Brown obseervation button

Recently, as I was on Facebook, I saw a post showing a picture of a person who had recently died, with the phrase R. I. P. underneath. I was surprised at my sudden reaction of recoil, and dismay. What a terrible thing to say!

Rest in Peace immediately triggered in my mind, a teaching that Rev. Carl R. Hewitt had discussed many times. He spoke of the Church teaching its members that when they die, if they lived good lives, their souls would go to heaven. Then the souls would sleep for eternity, until Jesus would wake them up. Rest in peace certainly corroborates this erroneous teaching.

Death is a second birth. It is what Jesus termed: “Being Born Again!” [John 3:3]

A special symbiotic relationship exists between an expectant mother, and her unborn child, for they are joined as one. The umbilical cord connects the child’s body to the mother’s, and serves as the unborn child’s lifeline that brings food and oxygen to the developing child.

Nine months after conception, the baby is fully developed within the mother. It is now time for the baby to make its grand entrance into the physical world. Usually the family knows when this will happen. The family makes many preparations for the arrival of the child. People give the mother, baby clothes, cribs, and other small pieces of furniture. Distant relatives may even travel to welcome the child into the physical world.

Moments after a baby’s birth the umbilical cord is severed, separating the child from its mother. The child now becomes an independent being, who lives, breathes, and has its own being as a separate individual. The child’s invisible body, its spirit, is now functioning on a slower, physical, vibrational rate, than it did when it resided in the Spirit World. The baby’s soul is now connected to its physical body by an invisible silver cord. Throughout the person’s life the silver cord connects the soul and the physical body.

A physical body cannot live unless the soul is there to animate it. As death occurs the soul starts to leave the physical body, and the silver cord pulls apart like an overcooked piece of spaghetti. When the soul is approximately 14 inches from the body, the silver cord snaps. The soul, unattached from its worn-out physical body, instantaneously arrives in the Spirit World. The soul is now the new body, which will live in a new world. In a sense, the soul is being born again, since it arrived in a new world, in a new body, and a second cord was severed.

Furthermore, the soul’s deceased friends and family members are there to greet the soul, just as they were in the physical world, when the baby first entered the physical world. The Bible teaches us this fact when it says, “Then Abraham yielded the spirit, and died in a good age, an old man and of great years, and was gathered to his people.” [Genesis 25: 8 Geneva Bible 1560]

Jesus was describing death when he spoke of being born again. He was not describing some dogmatic, theological process that a human being must go through. It would not matter if a person were Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Catholic, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Shinto, Taoist, Confuciusian, Hindu, or a member of any other religion. Death has nothing to do with religion. No physical person can enter the Spirit World, which Jesus called “the Kingdom of God,” in his/her physical body. To enter the Spirit World, one must go through a second birth, enter a new world, in a new body, and experience the severing of the second cord, the silver cord, which causes death of the physical body.

Contemplate a 1-year old baby for a moment. As you watch it during its waking hours, it is full of curiosity. It is exploring its new environment. It is learning and experiencing so many new things, and processing new information.

What makes anyone think there is any different for the second birth, or your life in the Spirit World? Many mediums have brought through detailed descriptions of the World of Spirit. [Testimony of Light by Helen Greaves, is one].

The Spirit World is similar to our world, yet radically different. The Spirit World has colors and flowers that we do not have here on earth. Everything is created through thought. Therefore, if you wanted to live in a mansion, all you have to do is to think it into existence… no contractors, no mortgage, no taxes, etc.

There are schools and universities in the Spirit World, where the soul gains enlightenment. There are opportunities for the soul to pursue whatever it wants. So for people to send the thought to a deceased person that it should rest is counter‑productive.

Instead we should send out the thought of strength and vitality. We should send the thought of encouragement, for the soul to enjoy the opportunity for spiritual evolution, and for active exploration in a new world. We should send the thought of peace and contentment. For the energy used in the Spirit World is thought. When we have thoughts of our loved ones, living in the Spirit World, it draws them closer to us, in that moment. The Spirits of our loved ones are only a thought away. Therefore, sending our thoughts of encouragement and blessings greatly energizes the Spirits.

We should also be grateful in knowing that the soul will no longer be in pain or disease, for those conditions no longer exists in the Spirit World.

Facets of Mediumship

Image

Welcome to my blog, which will explore the many aspects of mediumship. A medium is a person, who has the ability to perceive and receive information emanating from the Spirit World. Most people call the Spirit World heaven, and believe that it is a place, somewhere above the earth, where the souls of departed people reside. This concept is partially true. The Spirit World is above our physical world, not it distance, but in vibration, or frequency.

We all understand that if you take some ice cubes and place them in a pot, which is then put on the stove and turn on the heat the ice cubes will melt. The heat causes the water molecules to move faster, and as more heat is applied the speed of the molecules continue to increase. Eventually, the water molecules are moving so fast, that the ice cube can no longer remain solid, and becomes a liquid we know as water. As heat continues to be applied, the water molecules move even faster and turn into steam, which is no longer visible to our physical eyes.

If you take a very cold plate that has been stored in the freezer, and hold it over the pot producing steam, and water molecules become cool down, and move slower, as they contact the plate, then they condense, or turn back into water on the plate.

In this entire process, nothing has altered the structure or chemistry of water molecule itself. The molecules just began to vibrate or move faster, which caused the change in their state of matter (solid to liquid to gas).

Our souls are very much like water molecules. When death comes to the physical body, the soul exits the physical body, then its rate of vibration increases. It immediately begins to vibrate on a higher rate of frequency, than our physical eyes can see, just as we could not see the steam.

Mediums are people with “extra sensory perception.” Their senses work in ranges of frequency that most people cannot receive. This is what enables them to become the “telephone lines” which connects physical people with the souls of people living in the World of Spirit.

There are many different ways that mediums communicate with the Spirit World, and this blog will explore and explain them to you.

The Diamond of Mediumship

Mediumship can easily be compared to a beautiful, brilliantly sparkling diamond.

Diamond Mediumship
Brings light into the world. Brings light (knowledge and healing) into the world.
A diamond is a rather dull stone when extracted from the ground. It needs to be polished, and facets cut into it so that light will be reflected, then the diamond sparkles in the light. Mediumship also needs to be polished. It is usually called development. The medium learns how to connect with spirit, and the techniques of the communication process. As the medium develops, it is like an additional facet is being created which will be more detail and clarity into the communication.
The more facets cut into the diamond, the more brilliant and sparkling it will become. Each facet is another phase of mediumship, or a different gift of the Spirit. Three examples would be Clairaudience (hearing Spirit) Clairvoyance (seeing Spirit) Clairescience (feeling Spirit)
Much work goes into the transformation of a rough dull diamond until it becomes a brilliant sparkling gemstone. Much work goes into a medium’s development to become a clear (brilliant) channel for bringing through Spirit messages.

Just as a diamond has many facets, which allows light to be reflected and causes the mesmerizing sparkle in the diamond, mediumship also has many different facets. This blog will explore the many aspects or facets of mediumship. The facets will include:

  Facet Banner color
 1. Facets of Mediumship Grey
 2. Mediumship in the Bible Green
 3. Gifts of the Spirit Purple
 4. Medium’s Biography Blue
 5. Psychical Research Orange
 6. History of Mediumship Red
 7. Book Reviews Magenta

Each entry will have a colorful banner, which will allow the reader to know to which facet the article belongs.

It is my hope this blog will bring to light, the wondrous, rich history of mediumship in all its different facets.
