Introduction to the Five Powers of Spirit
You are a dual being. Part eternal spirit and part temporal body. Together these comprise your soul. The soul is more powerful than the spirit alone. You are the child of a Divine Father. He desires you to become a soul composed of spirit permanently united with an incorruptible, perfected body of flesh and bone. When we were young in the universe we existed as mere intelligences. Our Father gave us bodies of spirit that allowed us to grow and evolve. But without a physical body, we came to a place of limitation beyond which we could not pass.
Now spirits are not weak beings. They are very powerful and full of potential. But without bodies we would not be able to fully exercise our abilities. We had grown from the infancy of intelligence to the childhood of spirit. When we gained a body we entered our adolescence. Now coupled with our powers of spirit, we received the senses of the body. Because we were still adolescents and because this was our first experience of the physical, God wisely ordained a probationary period. During our probation we were given time to learn about the influence of the physical nature of things. We learn about the senses and emotions. At first these new experiences can be overwhelming to a spirit, almost like sensory overload, and we become creatures of the flesh. As we grow physically we strive to bring the spirit and the body into balance. The spirit is the power, ability, and knowledge that is us. The body is the vehicle and method by which our spirits advance and learn.
During our probationary time we are rediscovering ourselves and choosing whether the body or the spirit will rule our lives. The body was never intended to be the leader. Compared to the spirit it is weak. To assist us in turning to spirit and not getting carried away with the physical, our bodies grow old and die. As this happens we become more aware of our spirit.
The spirit is a more refined form of energy than that which surrounds us in this existence. Because it is more refined it is enduring and unchanging. All the things around us that we hold to be real are actually changeable. Their energy degrades and changes form. Those things that are truly lasting are more pure.
As spirits we have certain innate powers that we brought with us into this mortal life. These powers, if expressed by the spirit through the body, empower our lives and strengthen our souls.
These powers can profoundly affect, even alter, our experience in this mortal existence. If we harness these powers of spirit we will advance our true selves in the eternal scheme of our existence.

Spiritual Growth: Measures for How Youre Doing
In my yard are quarter-circles of grass growing taller than the rest. There 's also a 12-foot circle with no grass. What explains these phenomena? Alien laser blasts? A Martian landing site? No. The arcs are where we threw lawn fertilizer, and the circle is where the above-ground pool stood. Whether growth is fast, slow, or non-existent, the difference is easy to discern.
Who Is He?
"What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?" --MATTHEW 22:42, NCV
The Divine Holographic Energy Field
What is the true nature of any illness? Research in Energy Medicine is showing more and more that it is the result of a disruption in the Human Bio-field.

The Two Most Important Commandments - Love
Love is mentioned well over 350 times in the Bible. I'm sure God must be trying to tell us something. We will start our study with Matthew 22:37-38; And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the most important and first commandment.
10 Tips For Spiritual Growth
Spiritual growth is the process of inner awakening, and becoming conscious our inner being. It means the rising of the consciousness beyond the ordinary existence, and awakening to some Universal truths. It means going beyond the mind and the ego and realizing who you really are.
There is no incident in the life of Moses which I consider more epochal than this one; the encounter with the Red Sea. Here was a man who was faced with a great dilemma. He was on his way from Egypt to Canaan. He had received instructions from God to take the journey and he was following orders. He had been chosen to lead a group of oppressed and downtrodden people to the Promised Land. The journey had been successful to this point. Two great pillars had formed in the sky to lead them: a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. It was a wilderness journey.
In life, sooner or later, we come to the midnight hour. The hour comes when all is black, when myriad shapes seem to haunt our paths, when the very blackness appalls and our hearts cry out in utter despair. We fear the night and we dread what the day may bring forth.
The possibility of almost 400 Old Testament prophesies coming to fulfillment in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, apart from God's sovereign control of history, staggers the imagination. The certainty that God planned the coming of His son into the world can offer stabilizing support to our faith in our Lord.
The Purpose of Life, Told by an Agnostic
Talked to an interesting person today at a coffee shop, after about 10 minutes or so told me he was an atheist. Which is interesting and lends it self as to why we were having this particular conversation about "THE MEANING OF LIFE".

Did we just overlook the amount of love that God has for us?

Life Gets Teejus, Don?t It?
Those five words are from a song that I remember hearing a long time ago. It may even be the song's title. I dunno. For those of you who don't speak casual English, the word "teejus" can be translated to "tedious". Somehow it just doesn't have the same impact though. I think I'll just stick with teejus?

Abiding in the Word
How many Christian people do you know who are bearing no fruit? Jesus said, "Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. (John 15:4)
Candle Burning to Petition the Male Saints
Last NAN I explained how to petition the female Saints with special requests. This time around I'll provide some instruction on how to ask to be put in the cosmic care of the Male Saints . These are very ancient pagan rituals, which have been popularized by the Christian Church. The basic methodology is to put your request under the appropriately coloured candle on the suggested day of the week along with an image of the Saint (which you can often find on the Internet) and/or a symbol or emblem that represents the Saint.
Watch Your Language!
I have a big mouth. If you have read my testimony, you know that I have struggled with panic attacks and an anxiety disorder that most of the time left my tongue paralyzed when it came to simple things, such as ordering a meal or answering the phone. God delivered me from the solitude I had imprisoned myself in. However, I had a new problem--now I talked too much.
Enlightenment, which is as varied as each individual's fingerprint, is an experience of regaining our perfection in God or Christ consciousness, and words alone cannot express the joyfulness and peace in that discovery. God energy is perfect energy, and because we are God's offspring, so are we perfect. Standard religious beliefs try to convince us that this perfection is achieved somewhere in the "by and by."
Ultimate Truth:The Beginning
You decide! We are often asked to make decisions. Decision is described as, the passing of judgment on an issue under consideration, the act of reaching a conclusion or making up one's mind, a conclusion or judgment reached or pronounced, hence a verdict.
