WHAT IS SPIRITUAL HEALING?
Suggested Reading List for Personal UnfoldmentSpiritual Healing is one of the special phases of mediumship and of Divine Metaphysics which uses the understanding and power of the Natural Universal Laws to impart vital and curative forces to pathological conditions. It is recognized in the New Testament and has been a tenet of both ancient and modern religions.
A human being is made up of three parts: body, mind and spirit. And, it is the energy of the mind which controls the spirit. And, it is the energy of the mind which controls the condition of these parts. Constructive mental thoughts create healthy conditions. Destructive mental thoughts create disease condition. It is a fact, stated in the Bible, that the normal condition of an individual is to be perfect and healthy in body, soul and spirit. This is the condition which God has made available for everyone. Therefore, there is always a limitless supply of Divine Healing Energy to help a person achieve perfect health. This Divine Energy and the Natural Universal Laws which control it are what a Spiritual Healer uses with the direction and guidance of higher spirit forces, to help an individual during a healing. Spiritual Healers work in many different ways, but whichever methods they use, all contain common attributes. The healers enter into their own silence and meditation to raise their consciousness to the spiritual plane, request spiritual direction and guidance, and tap into the limitless storehouse of God-supply. They visualize the person receiving healing and request the cooperation of the unseen forces to direct the healing energy to that individual. The healers also visualize the person in perfect health affirming the presence of infinite intelligence; and giving thanks for an influx of peace, harmony and balance. In addition, the healers mentally direct to the individual instructions to attune their own mental energies along positive and constructive pathways. Although healers can assist an individual by directing healing energies, the success of a healing depends on the faith and desire of the person to use his or her own mental energy positively.
And finally, the individual desiring healing need only attune his or her own mind to Spirit so that the forces can operate successfully.
WHAT IS DESIDERATA
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals
Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.

Divine Metaphysics found in the Bible
What is Divine Metaphysics
First Spiritual Church of Bay City is a church that celebrates and practices the religion, philosophy, and science of Divine Metaphysics.
What is Divine Metaphysics?
Divine Metaphysics is a Science, Philosophy
Paramount among the spiritual truths is the fact that life is continuous. The change called death is merely a rebirth into a world of higher vibration. This truth is proven through communication, by means of mental and physical mediumship, with loved ones and teachers who live in the spirit world.
Other truths are contained in the Declaration of Principles as accepted by the United Metaphysical Churches and can be found under the section, “This we believe.”
One of the truths of Divine Metaphysics is to teach these truths pertaining to man’s spiritual and physical welfare. However, the practice and promulgation of these truths do not make Divine Metaphysics a creed because each individual is encouraged to worship God according to the dictates of his or her own conscience.
Some of what Divine Metaphysics teaches and does are contained in the following points:
- Individuals are morally responsible for themselves.
- Man is a threefold being – body, soul
- Man is just as much spirit now as he ever will be, except that he is encased in a physical body.
- We reap as we sow and, life being continuous, we carry into the next world all positive and negative actions taken on the earth plane.
- An understanding of God’s Natural Universal Laws teaches an individual how to love, here and hereafter.
- All men are brothers and God is their Father. Therefore, all men are divine because they have the spark of God within them. They all have potentialities of God if they choose to develop them.
- Heaven and hell are states of mental consciousness and not literal abodes.
NOTE: We recommend the George M. Lamsa translation of the Holy Bible which is taken from the ancient Aramaic text. The Metaphysical Church does not accept the Bible as the infallible word of
Declaration of Principles
1. We believe in God, as the Infinite, Divine Source of all.
Rather than seeing God as a personified being, we believe God is a perfect, balanced, creative energy- and is characterized as pure love. It is the animating force behind all visible creation in the universe. It is incapable of jealousy, envy, judgment or any other human character trait—As Father Jay Samonie wrote in his book “On My Way Home” about those who see God as a personified being, “Your God is too small.”
2. We believe in the Law of Vibration and that we draw to us all our positive and negative experiences based on our own thoughts, words and deeds.
Our lives here on Earth contain life lessons which can seem painful and hard; unexpected illness or the loss of those we love when we least expect it. So many things ask us how do we walk through this with Grace? How do we overcome these dark nights of the soul? The answer lies in how we use our words, how we think about these challenges. We live and die by the sword…and the sword is our tongue. If we dwell on negative thoughts and give voice to words of defeat and loss about these situations, our visible life experiences will show us more of the same thing. If we look for the “God” in every life experience, saying, “Thy will be done.” Or, “Thank you, God, for the inspiration to know what to do next.” Or, “Thank you God, for my perfect outcomes.” We are putting positive God energy around our challenges, understanding that God energy is perfection. We are opening our hand and allowing that energy to work in our lives for the best of all outcomes according to Divine Order. It is the trademark of an old soul. We strive to expect what we want and give our energy to that, as well as wanting what we expect. If we only dwell on worse case scenarios or what we are afraid will happen, then we are actually magnetizing that undesired outcome to materialize even faster! We must be shepherds of our sheep (our thoughts) and be disciplined about how we “decree” what will happen next.
3. We believe in the immortality of our soul essence and that we carry our individual identities into the spirit after world each lifetime.
Our “soul” is the sum total of what we have learned as all the individual entities we have been through all our lifetimes on this Earth plane through all time. Our “spirit” essence after the change called death is that of our most recent incarnation. Thus, when we or someone we love makes their transition to the spirit side of life, we/they carry with them the personality and wisdom accumulated in this most recent lifetime, too. That’s why Mediums can detect spirits by name and relationship to you when you get a message or a reading. After a time of our life review, then sitting and learning with our guides and teachers, enjoying time with family and friends who preceded us in death, we believe we begin to plan our next lifetime. It will include how we will balance/experience Karma we may have created (both good and not so good) so that we “reap what we sow” from previous lifetimes, plan major life lessons for our next step in our soul’s journey to enlightenment and perhaps enjoy another incarnation with those from other lifetimes. We then begin to shape who we need to be for this next life. We choose our names, our parents, our birthdays and numerology charts, astrology carts—all the factors we need to have in place for our soul’s best life at this stage of our unfoldment. We also create sacred contracts with our guides and Teachers for the next time we will be part of the physical plane. We create contracts with those we will have deep relationships with as family or significant people in our next life. Not every move in our life will be “pre-destined,” but like road signs on the Interstate highways, we move through the life we plan making use of our free will to decide what is best for us as we watch for our major milestones along the way.
4. We affirm that interaction and communication with those on the spirit side of life are spiritual gifts within all people.
Everyone can develop their spiritual gifts, whether it be their ability to be a channel for healing energy (God energy), serve as a Medium between the two worlds for readings and messages and/or use their other Divine Attributes as demonstrated by our Wayshower, the Master Jesus.
5. We believe that all beings have the potential to be channels for healing and guidance as revealed in many world religions.
As Jesus said in John Ch. 14, “These things and greater ye shall do also.” As children of God, we are simply “dormant Christs.” We have yet to awaken to our full potential as Jesus attained while in his lifetime as Jesus of Nazareth. Some choose to develop their spiritual gifts in service to others, others might just know they feel departed loved ones around them and always follow their “hunches” when deciding what to do. We each have a free will to use our inherent spiritual gifts as we feel is right for us. The study of other world religions finds incidents of prophecy, healing, manifestation, “speaking in tongues” (channeling) in their writings.
6. We affirm that the highest example of our soul’s evolution while on Earth is to live in accordance with the Golden Rule.
Many world religions have a version of the Golden Rule as part of their philosophy. In Luke Ch. 6 v. 31 we find it in the Holy Bible. If we lived by that rule alone, we would find love, peace, equality, forgiveness and compassion ruled our planet.
7. We believe that all souls will grow and evolve toward enlightenment through Divine Love and Order and will, according to the Laws of Karma, correct any errors committed here on Earth.
As we grow to understand how to live on the Earth plane with the consciousness of a Christ, we can remain in harmony with the natural and spiritual laws (Divine Love and Order) that govern all beings and avoid incurring karmic debts with others because of our misdeeds. However, the doorway to reformation is always open. At any time we can “repent.” In other words, stop doing what was causing harm and do something else. The Law of Karma says we will experience all the same good deeds and misdeeds we incur with others. However, the Law of Grace says if we admit our mistake, ask for forgiveness and make amends for what we did, then we will have balanced the karma caused by our actions.
