Circles for learning and Practicing Your Own Divine Self Response Abilities
with increased Spiritual Awareness
Inspired by the Healing Light of Love, through the Mystical Spiritualist Church
and the Universal Healing Light Foundation
Sometimes you can't teach them a thing, but you can always love them!
After much deliberation, I have decided, after over six and a half years of holding Spiritual Development Circles in Prescott and Prescott Valley, that I am retiring from leading these Circles of Love, so I can go do some other things in life.
However, if you are interested in developing your abilities, I highly recommend Rev. Lois Cheney's class: Developing "Extra Sensory" Perception: Accessing Your Natural Psychic Abilities ... offered through the Yavapai College Adult Ed. Department.
Developing "Extra Sensory" Perception: Accessing Your Natural Psychic Abilities - Lead by Rev. Lois Cheney
Learn to access and experience the reality that lies just below the surface of everyday life. Sharpen your natural intuition with specific techniques or “tools.” Find reliable answers to your own important questions by quickly tuning in to extra sensory perceptions. Use your heightened awareness to access valuable information from sound, color, taste, smell, touch, or any sensation on your skin or in your mind, body or emotions. Many aspects of the psychic will be touched upon including kinesiology, psychometry, distant viewing, sending healing, astral travel and dream work. Each class will include a topic-specific meditation.
No charge to participants, just bring your open mind and loving heart. Seating is limited.

You are invited to gather with other Light Seekers in a Spiritual Learning, Meditation and Support Group.
This will allow you to take the time, each week, to meditate, focus and develop your inner senses, so that you may perceive and receive some of the infinite “gifts of the spirit” that exist both within and all around us.
Develop you inner awareness with Meditation.
"It is a joy and a blessing when individual humans come together with spirit to share in a Holy Communion of their divine energies, with awareness."
A Note from our Head Minister:
In preparing to lead a class, "From Jesus to Constantine", at Yavapai College, I have run across many interesting facts concerning the roots of today's Christianity.
Among them was the original meaning of "Charismatic" (a term which describes many of the early churches). The term "Charismatic" comes from the Greek word, "charismata", which meant "expressing your gifts of the spirit". This is exactly what we advocate and encourage in our circles!
In order to participate in these spiritual awareness facilitation circles, we prefer that you have an open mind along with some prior education or experience with spirit. You must, then, arrive early, as we lock the door at 6:30, by the clock inside the building. The reason we do this is so that the spiritual and psychic energies in the circle are not disturbed or broken.
Then, so that you may get used to and begin to attune with the higher energies of spiritual communion, we ask that you spend at least one season (3 months) in these circles, so that you may begin to properly develop your own "Gifts of the Spirit" along with becoming aware of your innate Self Response Abilities.
After all, this is a sacred circle, where we honor each other and our connections with All-That-Is.
NOTE: THE SHIFT IS HAPPENING As of 15 August, 2012, our schedule has changed. We will now be meeting on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings, except as our ministers are called elsewhere, such as:
August 28th - Arizona Primary Election Day ... Rev. John is a Poll Worker
September 25th - Previously Scheduled Family Vacation
October 23rd - Previously Scheduled Ministerial Vacation
December 25th - Christmas
Traditionally, Spiritualism has been based on science, spirit, philosophy and mediumship or the channeling of spiritual energies to help people live better lives. This church and our classes promote and continue these policies.
Who is invited?
In the past we held our our Spiritualist Circles so that mystics, lightseekers and lightworkers may play and have fun in their spiritual pursuits involving contact with love, loved ones and the love within each one of us. This is not for everybody.
in 2012, we are changing gears as we turn up the energy to create Circles of Transformation. [See our 2012 Transformations web page] This new direction will likely involve more work, but also more progress toward developing your spiritual awareness, exercising your personal "gifts of the spirit" from God and even your psychic abilities
What we do is based on: 1) The Christianity (and many other religions) belief in Everlasting Life. 2) Belief in the love that binds all life and our human hearts in a unity of life. 3) The religious idea that "What God hath made, let no man put asunder" ... Stated scientifically by Issac Newton as, "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed by mankind." Energy, then, is neither "good" nor "bad"; as it is we who direct it either way. 4) And the fact that many Biblical characters were visited by and even guided by God, spirit and angels and we see no reason why that would have changed or why a loving Creator would need to cut us off from what was and is our natural heritage of communion with the (spirit) energy we are made of. 5) Thus we start by setting our disbeliefs aside, as Jesus and many other Teachers and Masters ask us to do, "so we might live a more abundant life".

As we approach another year end, we realize that circles turn and almost return to where they were while cosmic cycles come around in the spirals of time and space ... never coming back to exactly the same spot in time, space, love, grace or experience.
Mystical Spiritualist Church Spirit Circles are going dark after the last gathering of light seekers with the angles, guides and loved ones in 2011, at 6:30 PM, on Tuesday, October 25th.However, these learning, development and practice circles will resume with renewed energy in 2012, with the help of Rev. John & Martine Kohlenberger and Rev. Debby Taylor, all of whom are experienced spiritual communicators andfacilitators.Theses circles are forfinding one’s “gifts of the spirit”, while increasing spiritual attunement and psychic awareness.
All Light Seekers and Light Workers in the Quad-City areas are invited to gather with spirit and others of like heart and like mindto enjoy an inspiring fun filled evening as we go out of our minds and into our hearts in our last meeting of this year, at Creekside Center in Prescott.

Spirit is just a thought away.
Times change, even time itself changes, as the world, our galaxy and even the universe goes through its spiraling cycles.
Learn and practice Spiritual Development in our 2012 Circles for Transformation
SHIFT HAPPENS ... 2012 is coming! As the seasons and year4s come and go, so do our human endeavor. Thus, our previous Spirit Circle activities have gone dark (after October 25th, 2011), the energies are germinating for renewed life, just as the earth is doing at this darkest time of year. So it is that darkness is required to bring new life to the light of day, thus even we have our times for sleeping, renewing our energies and waking for activity.
As a non-profit Spiritualist Church, we conduct spiritualist circles in order to train, teach and dispel the fears of contact with the benevolent energies of the universe that lie beyond our physical 3-D world. As such, these Circles are also a part of our Ministerial Training & Ordination Program. These experiences are offered so that not only our ministers, but you may find your own spiritual empowerment through the discovery of your own personal Higher (Christed) Self and use your response abilities in the exercise of your "gifts of the spirit".
CIRCLES & CYCLES: Galaxies turn, stars rotate, our earth turns and goes round and round our sun.
Our concept of "time" is really our attempt to measure change. But change always is, was and will be, for it is the only "constant" in this universe!
Thus these have become times of coming to full rotation, things coming full circle and cycles repeating again, but never in exactly the same way. So it is that our "Milky Way" galaxy has come around its 52,000 year cycle (or circle) and is bringing changes to our awareness, much as the Mayans observed and described with their calendar. The Ages have passed and turned in their course, since the world was last in this place and so here we are, today, ready for new awarenesses, understandings, approaches and experiences for our soul, mind and body.
So it is that our Circles are in process, adjusting to what is needed for 21st Century people and Spiritualism.
Live, Love, Learn and Laugh … with Spirit!
The Mystical Spiritualist Church holds Spiritual Learning and Practice Circles on alternating Tuesday evenings.On October 25th, 2011, we are looking to the future by inviting our angels and guides to help us bring new understandings of old principles.
Learn, Practice and Enjoy your Spiritual Attunement, Develop Awareness, Get Psychic Impressions, Practice Healing in 2012.
The fun begins @ 6:30 PM, at Creekside Center, 337 N. Rush St. in Prescott for a low fee of $7 to cover rent and learning.
Science and religion are merely two ways at looking at our universe. These two may be seen as one by using the intuition in our hearts.
Spiritual Awareness & Psychic Development Circles Spiritualist Circles sponsored by the Mystical Spiritualist Church
The Mystical Spiritualist Church has its roots in both Spirit and Science.Thus, we are excited to announce the continuation of our Spiritualist Circles where we regularly gather to create a consistent connection with the energies of God, the Angels, Saints and all of spirit; with the aid of our spirit guides, loved ones, in realms Above, Beyond and Within. We do this so we may learn and practice our Natural Spiritual and Inner Awareness along with our God-Given ("Gifts of the Spirit") Psychic Abilities.We hold these Spiritual Circles every other week throughout the year, except near Holidays.
Like hearts, minds and spirits gather at 6:30 PM at Creekside Center, 337 N. Rush St. in Prescott.
Before coming to our circles, please see our "What Are Spiritualist Circles" page for further details and restrictions. For new people, a phone call to Rev. John at (928) 776-1686 is also appropriate.
Our Format is now:
A short Spiritual Inspiration or lesson to se5t the tone for the evening
Invite out Spirit Guides, Angels, Loved Ones and Gate Keepers to come near
A Meditation to relax the logical mind and settle into your heart
Sharing of our experiences with Spirit (while "In Circle")
Short discussion of those experiences
Billet Reading Practice or other Attunement Exercise
Personal, family and world Healing Time
Closing of our Circle.
All this takes about an hour and a half.
The Purpose of our Spiritualist Circles: We hold these Circles so that each attendee may further develop their own psychic abilities and spiritual awareness, with the aid of teachers on this side of the veil, along with the help of a loving nonjudgmental group in spirit "on the other side" of the veil and your own spiritual guidance, higher self and their inner truths. Within each circle we create the energies of awakening, learning, messages from spirit and healing.
No prior experience is necessary. The only requirement is a desire to know God, Goddess, self and spirit better. This is intended to be a light hearted, fun adventure where preconceived ideas and intellectual logic is released so that your heart and imagination may come in to play. Isn't this what you did as a small child? Come, learn about the suttle universal energies, sensing unseen energies, communing with spirits, angels and spirit guides, your kundalini energy, chakras, human electro-magnetics, auras, tea readings, the use of pendulums and more.
REMEMBER: “Only as little children shall you be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven”.
Through the relaxation of our purely physical orientation, releasing the bonds of our linear intellect and employing the freedom of imagination, may students of the divine learn psychic development techniques, using the tools of inspiration, music, prayer, affirmation and meditation. To practice this, we sit in a circle of communion with like-minded and like-hearted people and spirits, BELIEVING that indeed, "With God and spirit, All things are possible".
Many students of the Divine Within, world wide, have found more of what they seek, spiritually and thus become ministers of love and peace unto themselves and others in this manner. Our purpose is to help Lightseekers, Lightworkers and Dreamweavers become more fulfilled with their own spiritual asperations, inspirations, insights, lives, enlightenment, wisdom, love and the peace that passeth all understanding.
INTERESTED? We meet every other week on Tuesday evenings between 6 and 6:30 PM, beginning our Circle of Love at 6:30 sharp. Late comers will not be admitted, so we invite you to show up by 6:15.
All we ask, when you are in Circle is that you relax, have fun, let your imagination play (like when you were a child).And release the limiting bonds of the linear intellectual mind so that you may go into your heart. Do this and you too will have the personal experience of being one with God and spirit ... feeling that God Is Love!
We invite you to awaken your heart and meet your True Self … The Christ within you!
END NOTE: We gather as a group of light hearted supportive people. Thus, we understand that some people will come to observe, some to sit in this energy and absorb it, some to participate and hear, see or feel spirit and then to speak about their experiences.Who so ever is drawn to this energy, in the belief that Spirit is Real, Loving and can be worked with, is welcome.Just hang up your fears, doubts and unbelief outside the door; come in with an open heart and mind, and you, too may experience some of what the Prophets and Mystics of old did. The Living Spirit is not "dead"!
Rev. Martine at Stonehenge
Rev. Martine (pictured) and John Kohlenberger have many years of experience in Spirit Circles in Orange County, Southern California, have brought this energy, knowlege and experience to Yavapai County in North-Central Arizona. We are proud to be part of a network of Spiritual Teachers and Lightworkers in the Southwest USA and around the globe.
Our goal is to help you become comfortible as your own teacher; not just a student of the Divine!.
WHY JOIN A CIRCLE?
Edgar Cayce encouraged some to experience a bit of the infinite nature of reality …
Come, find out more about the “convincing evidence of the survival of personalities, those activities that would bring messages, communications, activities from the inter-between of departed souls. (3620-2)
Then it may be said of you that, “the entity gained through the associations, the lending of self in those activities that brought understanding of the relationships of individuals to unseen forces as they became active with people of that period - not in suppression, but in understanding and making a thorough study and investigation of those things that came into the experiences of others, through the ones that saw scenes, visions, heard noises, heard activities that brought many of the activities” of the Living God within all things and the unseen energies of spirit into the awareness. (665-1)
WHO IS "CALLED" ... to enter into a Spiritualist Circle?
Spiritual Seekers join Spirit Circles to learn, practice, observe and to simply soak in the spirit energies. A spirit circle is formed “when two or more are gathered together” to seek higher wisdom from spiritual sources, usually from above or beyond what they believe to be, themselves.
Traditionally, spirit circles are held in people’s homes, thus they are often called “home circles” in England where Spiritualism is also popular.Spirit Circles or Séances have even been held in the Whitehouse when Abraham Lincoln was president.Many people have begun to learn to bridge the imagined, “chasm” between the physical world and the so called “out there” higher spiritual planes in Home Circles.In that process, many have become mediums for the transference of spirit energy through circles such as ours.
“It is a joy and a blessing when man and spirit join together to seek the greater understandings and awareness” – Dr. James M. Peebles a spiritual teacher in this world, now from sharing his wisdom the great beyond)
HOW IS A SPIRITUALIST CIRCLE FORMED? A spirit circle is formed “when two or more are gathered together” to seek higher wisdom from spiritual sources, usually from above or beyond what they believe to be the limitations of self. Spiritual Seekers, Lightworkers and Energy Healers join Spirit Circles to learn and practice opening to their heart more completely; where the “still small voice within” exists.Along with this comes associatedimages, feelings, smells, tastes, memories and thoughts that come with our own spirit as we invite and allow that presence to come alive in our physical world.Some come to practice opening to All-That-Is (God), while others are attracted by the "energy" of the process and come to observe or to simply soak in the energies that come with the communion of The Living Spirit. We invite you to come to learn how to Release, Relax and Rejuvenate your connections with spirit.Then as you allow your focus to go out of your linear intellectual mind, you enter your quantum sacred heart, or Sacre Coeur.
As you enter within your holy sanctuary within self you may find your light, your truth and your way.
Why Join a Circle?
The "Sleeping Prophet", Edgar Cayce, encouraged some people to experience a bit of the vast nature of infinite reality … As he suggested, now you too may find out more, through Spiritualism, about the “convincing evidence of the survival of personalities, those activities that would bring messages, communications, activities from the inter-between of departed souls”. (3620-2)
Are you ready to awaken to your true self ... learn to embrace it all ... in love rather than fear?
AWAKENING TO YOUR TRUE SELF
We are all from the same God, the same source and that source is love.Thus, when we talk about knowing yourself, we are not talking about the external reality of your world. Rather, we speak of the truths that you want to know about yourself that are eternal truths and your eternal life.
The answers come only from “the kingdom that is within”. In deep meditation experiences, we allow God to speak to us, through us. The deeper and higher you go in meditation, the more you know that God lives in you. This is a universal truth. Not one human soul who has ever lived on the earth plane is an exception to the reality of God living in them.
In our Circles, we move from worry and concern about the external world so we allow our awareness to center upon the Living Spirit within. As you do this, many, many answers will come to you, and much guidance will come to you for your life.
As we pray and meditate without expectation, we enter into the Kingdom of Heaven that is within and may sense a desire within: a desire to receive the gifts of spirit through love and understanding in your life. You each have a guide, a friend, a family member that is with you in this Domain. There is one with you at all times who wants very much to come to you out of the light, out of the mists of indecision to help you in your understanding, to help you find the answers that you are seeking. That one is here already, my dear friend. With the Living Spirit, all questions already have answers, all needs are already fulfilled.
To receive these promises is a matter of opening yourself to accepting the light, love, inspiration and truth that you already are.The Kingdom within is yours, for the Great God of All is Alive and hiding within You!
Awakening to The Larger Realities of Life
through an awareness of a Higher Consciousness of Your Inner Truths
During the month of June, many kindred spirits are near the earth to help humanity and are helping to help Seekers learn and develop their own psychic attunementsand spiritual awareness as we meet in Spiritualist Circles. Rev. John & Martine Kohlenberger, along with Martin Archer from the Mystical Spiritualist Churchfacilitate these sittings at 6:30 PM every other Tuesday evening.On June 9thand 23rd, we will have different exercises for your soul, along with a meditation and attunement.No special knowledge is required to attend.
All Light Seekers and Light Workers in the Quad-Cities are invited to gather with spirit and humans of like heart and like mindto enjoy an inspiring fun filled evening as we go out of our minds and into our hearts.
A love offering of $5 is asked to cover rent and the benefits of your spiritual education, messages & healing.No prerequisites other than an open heart and mind.
Quoted from Barack Obama's Inaugeration speach.
At his inauguration, the new President of the U.S.A. said:
"When imagination joins commitment, great things can be accomplished"
This is True; whether it is for Spirit, Government or Family:
BELIEVE! ... and it shall come to pass
SPIRITUALIST CHURCH - SPIRIT CIRCLES An Intruduction to Meditation, Spiritual Development, Spirit Messages, Guidance and Healing
“It is a joy and a blessing when man and spirit join together in search of the greater truths and awareness” – Dr. James M. Peebles (now a channeled entity)
What happens in a Circle?
Spirit circles have a long history, even into pre-history. Many who read this are familiar with a meditation, healing or message gathering (circle) where one person is the "medium" and gives all the advice and is in control.The circles that we offer, here, are much less structured than that, so that each person present may become a part of the experience and even learn to give and receive messages or healings or other “gifts of the spirit”.
Common Elements of Spirit Circles:
Gathering, Affirmation, Music, Inspiration, Meditation, Psychic Development, Billet Reading, Messages, Mediumship, Channeling, Healing, Prayer & Disbursing; not necessarily in that order.
For millennia, like minded and curious people have gathered to find out more about their world, their being, capabilities and response abilities.Discovering more is the natural result of the expansion of consciousness that we see in physical form as an expanding universe.Often a positive prayer or affirmation is used to “center” people’s minds to gather the energies before "starting" the circle.
In the Beginning We begin by setting the energy pattern with hope for positive results and the belief that “It is all God”, thus at no time are we separate from light, life and love during this time.Also, at no time is there any intent to impose ideas or beliefs, presented by any person or personality in these circles, upon the beliefs of any individual.Each participant is encouraged to decide for them selves the validity, accuracy, and importance of any information or experiences presented.
Positive affirmations are often used to set the energy pattern for each gathering of a circle . Affirmations, to be most effective, need to be personal, positive and present .As an example; if your belief supports it, you may say “I AM …”.Or, if you are not that positive about your relationship to what it is you desire, may say “I AM BECOMING …” or "This Is Becomming ...". Do not lie to yourself, for you do know the truth of you.
NOTE: Throw out the “can’s, will’s, may’s and maybes”.Cans go in the trash, wills are for dead people and the mays are always in the future … maybe next May? Coulds and shoulds are also to be avoided; if it truly could've or should've: by the Power of God it would've already!
Calming, soothing music is often played so that those gathered may center and focus their awareness on the lighter things in life; namely their spiritual aspects.Sometimes we use recorded music, live music or sing songs, while at other times toning or chanting may be used.The “muses” provide paths to truth, beauty, love and ultimate realities; as they help lift us above and beyond the limitations of earth, body and mind.
Shared words of inspiration may be as simple as a sentence.Often times an inspiring passage or a page is read out of a book, though some times an individual may bring an inspiring or inspired phrase to share.A short discussion may follow.
Many people imagine that they talk directly to God or other Deities in prayer.Your favorite Deities may include Higher Selves, Masters, Prophets, Avatars, Angels, Saints, Gods, Goddesses or even Extra Terrestrials. Opening this communication is up to each individual.All we ask is that you connect with your highest self or being and lovingly allow others to do the same – even if that is a different connection than yours.
A guided meditation is used to “center” your thoughts and being as you “connect” with your deities and then All-That-Is.Some of our meditations will better enable you to be in contact, connect and communicate with your Gate Keeper, Guardian Angels, Guides and Loved Ones, way beyond the commonly agreed upon limitations of the physical plane.
Development of one’s senses, beyond the physical, mental and emotional orientations is a natural consequence of quieting those senses in prayer and/or meditation.This sort of group is organized to help each person understand their best direction and gain confidence in their own innate abilities. You may even experience the magic of the Mystic that You Are along with the Love that You Are, in a Circle.
Billet Reading & Angel Messages Messaging Circles are common in the U.S.A. and abroad.You may have already attended such a session.Once you have knowlege and xperience of contact with those on the Higher Vibrational Planes within All Existence, above and or beyond earth, body and mind, you are ready to see, hear, feel, taste or touch into messages from spirit and spiritual sources.We will all practice this art by giving, receiving and critiqing Angel Billet Readings.
Mediumship – in General
There are many forms of Mediumship. Music and musicians are often the medium for spirit to touch your emotions, heart or mind.If the music “moves you”, you have been “moved by spirit” – or the spirit of the music. Great painters are mediums, yes, even house painters may be mediums. As you find any form of work or play inspiring, the performer is likely a medium.Even cabinet makers or trash collectors may be mediums.You are likely already a medium and just do not know it!
There are many forms of spirit or Spiritual Mediumship (covered in a separate presentation).In general, Spiritual Mediumship is a process or an event in which, obviously, the “gifts of spirit” are active and being distributed to those attending or to those intended.The people who bring these gifts are the “Mediums” for other spititual energies, “Entities” or disincarnate personalities to pass their views of reality to humanity.Remember to weigh what you hear, see, feel and experience with your heart.
This is considered by many to be a step beyond mediumship, or it may indeed be considered a “Super Mediumship”. For, flowing highly attuned spiritual energy, transmitting or transferring it, through words or other means is a form of Spiritual Mediumship.As one relaxes, releases and surrenders to spirit, and gets the ego out of the way, that person stops blocking the “still small voice” within and becomes the “Medium” or "Channel" for that energy.In this way they open to channel, more directly from Infinite Universal Sources and Divine Creative Forces.
Spiritual Healing is yet another form of Channeling. All health and healing comes on the vibration of Love. You may learn to release, relax and rejuvenate; self and others, through centering your being in love while in meditation and prayer.Healing, of course, comes in many forms; some of which are physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.And these methods may or may not involve touch, physical presence or the results desired.As one relaxes the conscious mind and releases expectation, spirit is set free to do its own form of magic and miracle, to let “God work in wondrous ways”.We usually also do this in a circle, as a group practice so the healewrs among us may blossom and bloom.
Back to earth, mind and body:
At the end of each circle session (usually in the evening), we came back to our earthly attunement, thanking the spiritual energies such as Guides, God and the angels for their help and guidance. This is very important!Every body and being appreciates love, honor and respect.Worship is not required.You may rest assured that you have boosted your energy potential and earthly vibration, by some amount, just by being in a circle of spiritual friendship to increase your understanding and awareness. At this point you are bringing heavenly energies to earth and it is tome to ground them as well as yourself.
It is customary to give $5 (2 pounds 50p in England) to the organization or persons holding the Home Circle.Here, your love donation goes directly to the Mystical Spiritualist Church, a non-profit corporation. No individual profits by money from these circles, yet everybody in attendance profits spiritually - and in many other ways as well. Your donation keeps the Circle of Abundance of Life active and alive.
Refreshments are often served afterwards, as the participants may want to engage in refreshing conversation with others who are in like attunement.However, after some sessions, where the vibration is particularly high, participants may be asked to leave in silence, until they arrive home.
MSC Disclaimer We have no intent to change your beliefs or convert you to our way of thinking or believing, so you may relax.We strive to be in truth and love, with respect for all as we allow each one here to be who we truly are, in truth and love.In this way you may weigh your truths and decide the validity, accuracy and importance of what we offer.And, if you find some of the material presented attractive to you, welcome.However, if you don’t, it was an honor to be together in the spirit of the love of truth with you.
From Rev. John M. & Martine R. Kohlenberger
“I recently read James van Praag's books and he suggests getting together with like-minded people to develop and enhance psychic ability. So I was looking for something like this. I really have wanted to participate in a regular spiritual group. So you have read my mind.” – Linda
"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe." - John Muir
BILLET READINGS & ANGEL MESSAGES
What are they?
Billets are usually pieces of paper with numbers, letters, words or symbols upon them.These are billets or tickets to a better understanding of our place in this experience we call life.The message contained in and around that paper and symbol are then interpreted by a “reader”.In this class, you are learning to become that reader.The messages can come from you, your guidance, Angels, loved ones, saints, prophets or even aliens or God-Goddess and All-That-IS.Some messages, then, are indeed Angel Messages, Gifts from Spirit or Messages from Heaven.
How to “Read” billets.
Do not fear, judge or try to interpret what you “get” during this process.You are now a Servant of All-That-IS.Thus, we are not here to sell, buy into, fix, change or necessarily heal others.They are their own keepers.However, we are their brothers and sisters, ready to help as we can.We are here, as a reader, to simply give our best to another to help them get through their day and to get along their way.
Pick up a Billet
Choose one at “random” or one that “appeals” to you on some level. Look at it and see how it is folded, flat, wrinkled, torn or what makes this billet unique.Love it.Then, open it to see the contents, inside.What you see on the Billet that you select are symbols.They may look like numbers, letters, words or phrases.What you see is just the key; to unlock the energy and the message contained within you the paper Billet or object that you are reading and the person who first selected it and kept it upon their person for a while.
The Symbols or patterns contained within may look like double numbers or letters.These have placement and shape.They may look like arrows, mountains, symbols of unity, infinity, oneness or change.Just like reading tea leaves. The geometry that you notice can be clues to you, the Reader.
If you see numbers, sometimes, their numerological significance can be further clues to the message this person needs to hear. Similarly with letters or words that are revealed.Even if these remind you of something that only you know, this billet has been given to you (none other) by spirit; possibly or simply because you have that idea or experience to share.
For those who feel spiritual energy, they may feel the energy of the person who last held t5his object or paper.All things are vibration and so some of that persons vibration has been imprinted on this Billet or object that you will now get your message, or clues to that message, from.
You are connected with your guides and all of spirit.The other person is also connected through their guides and angels to that same spirit.Let that spirit be your medium and thus connect to the other person’s higher self, then stop, look and listen; feel what is going on and be in that energy flow.You may even channel the message needed.
Many people are “visual”. But not all are.If you see pictures in the symbols on the Billet, use this as a starter or a pert of your Reading.And, if you see symbol, pictures or scenes in your mind, second sight or clairvoyance may be developing.This has been given to you as your gift; use it.You may even become a “seer”.
Feelings and sensations in your own body, mind and emotions may be the clues you need to give the message needed.So, what are you feeling?Is it unique to this moment?If so, it is related to the message you need o give.
Listen to the “Still, small voice within”.Listen also to your own guidance.Listen to what is happening around you and if you think that you hear a faint whisper, this may be your guidance speaking to you.You could even become clairaudient.
Sometimes you will get the sudden scent of something unusual.Normally, this is spirit speaking to you.Now, how do you interpret that?This is up to you.
Though unusual (in my experience), tasting of flavors or foods while reading billets is possible and thus should not be ignored.Again, if you suddenly and for no apparent reason taste something, it is meaningful to you and the person you are reading for.
Last but certainly not least; TALK.Talking sets your energy flowing, going out and about and even bouncing back.This is how communication and communion takes place, as we share our energy with people, the universe, God and Goddess.The person you are reading the billet for will never get the message that, as a servant of spirit, you have for them unless your energy moves.Our voices are one way to move that energy which is in formation; as information.
“Do that that ye know and the next will be shown” – Edgar Cayce
There are many forms of Mediumship. The paints, stone, metal or wood that an artist uses to transform their inner inspirations into outer reality are called their “medium” through which they work.Their chosen medium then allows that artist to bring the spirit of love, beauty, harmony or truth into this world to such an extent that some people may call them a Master.In this sense, the Master is generally considered to be a human medium.There are also others such as cabinet makers, architects, scientists and even garbage collectors who do their work so effortlessly and easily that you would think that they have help from unseen forces.These, too, are mediums. Even your lowly telephone, radio, TV and wireless internet connection are communication mediums for interacting with unseen electro-magnetic energies. Simply put, “personal mediumship” is allowing ones being and bearing to bring some form of unseen or “spirit” energy into manifestation.You may already be a Medium and don’t know it.
SO, what is Spiritual Mediumship?
There are many forms of spirit or spiritual Mediumship.Look at all the channels you have on your TV or Satellite radio.Are they not each unique?Some seem to be more valuable than others, today.That may change tomorrow.
In general, Spiritual Mediumship is a process in which, obviously, the “gifts of spirit” are active and being distributed to those attending or to those intended.People who exhibit these gifts are the “Mediums” for other “Spirit Entities” energies or disincarnate personalities to pass their views of reality to humanity – and to receive back.
It has been known for many thousands of years that Spiritual Mediumship may be learned through the practices of Relaxation, Calming, Meditation, Spirit Circles, Psychic Development Classes or Healing Classes and that many seekers find Divine Guidance.
Opening Your Mind to Larger Realities
Hypnotherapy, like meditation, is also a way for some people to begin to put the conscious, subconscious and ego into a state of relaxation, so they no longer control.Picture these aspects of self going on a vacation, for a change.Some call this process “releasing the Earth, Body and Mind”.It is very relaxing and can be rejuvenating as well; for self and/or those near by.A telephone line is a “medium” ready to transmit information (energy in formation) both ways.Radios and TVs transform and transmit electro-magnetic energies into something we recognize. Similarly an open mind transforms and transmits spirit energies into usable information.
“It is a joy and a blessing when man and spirit join together to seek the greater truths and awarenesses” – Dr. James M. Peebles (a channeled entity with a band of angels)
Who is called to Seek?
Some seek to learn more about themselves, God and/or the Universe. Some seek to practice what they know in their hearts. Others are curious and come to observe so they can decide about their own questionings. Then, some seek to simply soak in the spirit energies and feel better. If one believes that “God is All”, then it matters not what or why they seek.

Seeking within and through Spirit Circles
As two or more are gathered together to seek higher wisdoms and truths from spiritual sources; from beyond what they believe to be themselves, unseen energies are magnetized and drawn together to help.Thus, a prayer circle, meditation group, development class or spirit circle is formed.These kinds of groups have a long and ancient history.Many people are familiar with a meditation, healing or message circle where one person gives all the advice and is in control.The gatherings that we offer are much less structured than that, so that each person present may, in time, become a part of the experience and even learn to give messages or healings or other “gifts of the spirit”.Every student is destined to become a teacher and visa versa.
Some Types of Mediumship … recognized by most Spiritualist Churches
Physical Mediumship; often called a Séance, is a Spiritualist Circle where Physical Mediumship is desired, such as the appearance of “apports”, table tipping or moving trumpets.Sometimes portions of a Personality and/or Higher Truths are also involved.
Personality Mediumship; is when people concentrate on bringing “through” a particular Personality, like a relative, Saint or particular Angel.Again, wisdoms and truths from higher sources may also be brought through to the group and/or to individuals.
Message Mediumship; occurs when a personality or group energy brings a “message” to a person or the group that has gathered.Of course, each person must practice their own form of distinguishing what is useful, enlightening, helpful or healthful from those messages and which are not.Personal-Response-Ability is to be applied at this point, as you must evaluate what you hear or receive to determine its value to you – or not.
Healing Mediumship; takes place when either messages or energies of healing are evident (sometimes after the Circle has disbanded).This may take place during special healing prayers, healing meditations, by thought or touch or during other circle related activities.Often we close our Spiritualist Circles with a “Healing Circle”.
Spiritual Mediumship; is practiced by people seeking a greater awareness, wisdom and new views of truth to solve old problems as well as to enlighten self and humanity. This form of mediumship does not depend on Personalities.It is often called “Channeling”. However, some people believe that messages have more meaning when identified with a specific personality that one reveres, such as an Angel, Archangel, Jesus, Mohammed or another Prophet.Thus, there are many who channel a personality or a group of souls focused through the concepts about that personality.
Bringing New Spiritual Truths to Earth; is a process that never stops.Truth is a living energy of The Living God and thus is always becoming; so there is always more.Bringing spiritual truths, whether through Mediumship and/or Channeling does involve elements of all the types of mediumship mentioned above.Some people identify this type of Channeling to be the highest vibration of Mediumship.
Channeling is considered by many to be a step beyond mediumship.It may indeed be considered a “Super Mediumship” for energy transmission or transference, through words, touch, out of body energies, or other ways.To do this, one must relax, release and surrender to spirit, thus getting out of the way for the “still small voice” within.Opening to the energies of the Greater Self (part of God) is when one opens to channel, from Universal Sources and Creative Forces.The man Jesus was an expert at this and was a Mystical Grand Master as he talked with God.Most Prophets, Sages, Avatars and Masters work in similar ways.Divine messengers are always available for the world and individuals within this world.But, are we ready to listen?
“What I do you may do also, and even greater things …” – Jesus (Yeshuah ben Yoseph)
The Purpose of our Spiritualist Circles
We hold these Circles so that each attendee may begin to find their own higher self, their inner truths and more of what they seek so that they may become fulfilled in spirit, inspiration, life, light, love and the peace that passeth all understanding.
You as the Medium of your life; thus you are always growing, changing and becoming more, even as you realize that you are something you did or did not know that you could or would be.At the same time you are becoming what you hoped and dreamed you would be.You are on the path to become your own best friend and Guru.Thus, each one of us is a work of God’s Perfection today and at the same time a work in progress toward Greater Discoveries and Perfections in never ending “tomorrows”.In spirit, nothing is ever “static” or “lost”.Energy loves motion and so is God.
We have no intent to change your beliefs or convert you to our way of thinking or believing, so you may relax.We strive to be in truth and love, with respect for all as we allow each one here to be whom we truly are, in truth and love.In this way you may weigh your truths and decide the validity, accuracy and importance of what we offer.And, if you find some of the material presented attractive to you, welcome.However, if you don’t, it was an honor to be together in the spirit of the love of truth for a while.

Out of Darkness comes Light(Rev. John M. Kohlenberger, 3 Dec 2008)
The book of Genesis says that in the beginning there was a void of no things along with darkness, and then God moved, became aware and said “Let there be light”.
Thus, from the combination of the warmth of love working in the darkness of the womb of mother earth came all life that is alive on, in and around the earth today.
From the darkness of your mother’s womb, your body was conceived and born in love, and infused with the spirit of the divine, so that you might experience the light of day along with the darkness of night and know that the each is born out of the other.
And, as we live our lives, often it is out of darkness and despair that we are reminded that there is more to life than what has been meeting the eye.The inner eye perceives the light that is within all things and inspires our inner flame to become activated so that we may better know and realize our relationship to God, the Angels, our loved ones and all creation.
Thus, the spiritual energies of light and love are attracted by darkness and despair and at the same time give the conditions for light and love to born from within.This is like the old analogy of the chicken being a part of the egg – or is it the other way around?The two are inseparable – they are two different manifestations of the same energy.
Further, within spiritual awareness, which is everywhere without ends or boundaries, love-light travels beyond the speed of physical light, unimpeded by space or time.This is why our scientists don’t yet have instruments to measure these up-scale electro-magnetic vibrational energies.Very few scientists have yet dreamed that something may exist beyond our present “limitations”.
Ordinary light, which is a part of what scientists call “the electro-magnetic spectrum”, travels at 186,000 miles per second.However, the unseen spiritual energies of light travel even faster and easier than that. These energies are beyond physical law and concept and yet at the same time help create the very physicality that we live within.Again, this is kind of like the chicken and the egg.
But, even light has an energetic form as a liquid.Spiritualists who have seen this energy call it “ectoplasm”.Ectoplasm is seen when spiritual energies are working in close attunement with the energies of earth, body and mind.Spiritually this is a “triple point” of manifestation.This is not an uncommon phenomenon to occur during Spiritualist Circles or Séances.
Also, by these same unseen energies working near earthly awareness, one may see or hear entities that exist beyond our time and/or space, at such gatherings.
If any of this sounds interesting, we invite you to our twice monthly Discourses 4 Discussion series where you may learn more about the physics of metaphysics and/or come to our twice monthly Spiritualist Circles where you may awaken and experience the feelings of the light within yourself or others around you.
