    Hi Girls, I have noticed a couple of times on this forum there are a few members into spiritualism.

    Its something i have always had a huge intrest in but have never really done much about it.
    My good friend is in to it and is very gifted but she rarely has time to practice with having 4kids. but a very close friend of mine was telling me the other day how intrested she is, her mum is a clairvoyant and also her nan.I have a few basics - crystals angel cards books etc.
    we have decided we are going to attend some spiritual churchs, i have been looking online and there are a few in my area im just not sure what is best for me?

    i have so far seen a few different clases
    Awareness Class
    Divine Service
    Open Circle
    Open Development Circle
    Healing Service
    Demonstration
    Clairvoyance

    i'm not to sure whats what? i'm not really into healing side of things, i just want to come more intouch with my spiritulaity and would like to see if anyone could get any thing from people that have past away.

    what do i expect? for eg if i go to a Clairvoyance evening? is it like a proper church where we all sit down and listen to one person speak or does every one go of in groups? i really have no idea what to expect, would i just turn up and would i need to pay?

    Thanks in advance chicks :eek:)

    It cant do any harm to go and see. If it was a clairvoyance evening then I would expect you would need to pay. I dont know if you would need to pay at the church tho, lik any church there would probably be a collection.

    It sounds very interesting.

    at a normal church service we have never been required to pay - just collection and take along some money for raffles etc :D - most spiritualist churches are v short of money

    going along to a service is a good gentle introduction if you've never been there before - there will also be a chance for you to have a chat with others and find out which development group will most suit you.

    Just a quick warning - some members don't like tarot cards - so keep quiet about them until you get the lay of the land :wink: and remember Spiritualism is an offshoot of christianity so although the services are a little less formal - it is a church service so get your hymn singing voice on :wink:

    edited - sorry just realised you meant angel cards :D

    Hi hun good to see you back :)

    (or have you been back for ages and i've missed it lol)

    Anyway, just wanted to say good luck, personally i've always been a bit wary of classes/courses etc as you are being taught one persons opinions, and spirituality is such a wide area.

    Id suggest go along to the spiritualist church but put classes etc on hold for a bit until you have read a lot. The best advice anyone can give to someone about to embark on this journey is read, read and read!

    You might find it very confusing, theres esoteric spiritualism, mediumship/clairvoyance, eastern philosophies and western theories, its all very very diverse and you shouldn't commit yourself to one area until you have sampled as many paths as possible and found one that speaks to you.

    I highly recommend reading The History of Spiritualism by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to get you started, a must read for anyone interested in spiritualism as it will give you a broader idea of the subject without trying to convert you :)

    Oh and dont worry about your image, no-one in spiritualism cares what you look like so you'll fit in fine, and your gorgeous anyway!
