Being Close to God
It wasn’t until I was in my 40’s that I made the connection. I now truly understand what she was telling me. Her connection to God/Spirit/Infinite Intelligence was direct while my other Grandmother was dependent on someone else for that connection. It explains so much to me now. Why I was so close to her, why I struggled with my other Grandmother’s definition of Spirituality.
At the Wednesday night service in Lily Dale early in this journey my deeply religious Grandmother came through so proud of me. The Medium said “of my 17 grandchildren, you are the one closest to God. I am so sorry I gave you such a hard time about Religion.” I could hear her saying it — and the surprise in her voice.
Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World.Spiritualism is a way of life, first and foremost. The Religion of Spiritualism attempts to share this way of life with others in a format that many are familiar with. There are a wide variety of independent churches along with the NSAC. All work together to promote an understanding of the connection with Spirit and each of us are encouraged to define that for ourselves.
My Exploration of Spiritualism
By far, my journey is far from over. I am personally learning each and every day. What I believe today may change on some truth that I learn tomorrow. All I, and anyone else for that matter, can do is be open to learning and growing.
