ATTENTION MINISTERS – INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.
Twin Flame, Uriel
As the individual to whom your congregation turns for spiritual direction, it is imperative that you begin to explore additional facets of spiritual growth. 2014 has already proven to be a very intense year and it will increasingly intensify throughout the year.
As a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor in the late 1960-70s, I regularly visited patients at Butner Mental Hospital in Butner, N.C. During my first seminary experience at Southeastern Baptist Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C., I also did a semester’s internship of pastoral counseling with patients in Dix Mental Hospital, Raleigh, N.C. Nurses in both Butner and Dix told me that the halls were filled with ministers as patients.
Why would this be the case? I know now that the reason is the utter lack of metaphysical knowledge relating to spiritual growth. Orthodox Christianity teaches absolutely nothing about the true make-up of individuals. Any manifestation out of the norm, such as hearing a voice in one’s head or declaring a past life memory to be true, is considered a form of mental imbalance and/or heretical inclinations.
Christians are taught almost nothing about life as it really is and nothing about who we really are. Instead, we are taught that we are lowly sinners and that “Jesus did it all” for us. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Many Christians are actually told by some religious authority figures to avoid reading self-help books and focus instead on Jesus.
Can you, as a minister, answer the following questions: What is a chakra? What is the Kundalini energy? How does the kundalini energy get activated? What does it mean to be a multi-dimensional individual? What is holistic spiritual growth? How do we go about purifying our energy fields?
The intense energies are opening people to realities about which they have either not heard or considered New Age mumbo-jumbo. As a minister, you are very likely to be called upon to assist with spiritual awakening symptoms during 2014. Rather than be a party to the gross misdiagnosis and treatment of individuals who are in reality opening to a deeper knowledge of spirit, I strongly encourage you to educate yourself by studying the resources offered on this website especially oriented to Spiritual Emergence. You will also find an extensive list of therapists who have been trained to deal with spiritual emergence.
Here is the definition of Spiritual Emergence provided on this website:
“The term Spiritual Emergence has been used to refer to the awakening of the spiritual potential within an individual that initiates the unfolding and expansion of that individual’s way of being. It is a natural process of growth toward a deeper, more connected and expanded way of being, that usually occurs slowly throughout our lives and is gently integrated. When this process occurs rapidly or becomes very intense it can seem disruptive and out of context with everyday life, precipitating a personal crisis which is referred to as a Spiritual Emergency.
Spiritual Emergence can also be referred to as Kundalini awakening (KA), shamanic journey, mystical experience, awakening the Divine within, psychic opening, out-of-body experience (OBE), or near-death experience (NDE).
Spiritual Emergence may be initiated or intensified by major life transitions, trauma, terminal illness, physical or emotional distress, the use of psychoactive drugs, as well as through intensive psychotherapy or practices such as breathwork, certain types of Yoga, deep prayer and meditation.
Although emergence is a natural process, traditional Western medicine and helping professions have not generally recognized it. Spiritual Emergence has the dual nature of being potentially deeply healing as well as potentially deeply disturbing. When those experiencing disturbed manifestations of SE seek traditional health care, they may feel misunderstood or be diagnosed as emotionally disturbed and prescribed medication or other medical interventions. The healing potential of the emerging spirit is often distorted or smothered and the aim of symptom management becomes the goal of therapy.
The spiritual Emergence Service believes that it is essential that the support of SE is open, compassionate and holistic, that is, supporting the whole person – body, mind and spirit. Our aim is to support the process and the individual by providing support and information as well as access to alternative healing professionals.”
POSTSCRIPT: I am deliberately listing my Twin Flame’s name as co-author with me because that is the case. What is a Twin Flame? The other half of you … the symbolic 2nd creation story in Genesis 2 describes God creating Eve from Adam’s rib—thereby creating two individuals having the same Soul. Many Twin Flames will be reuniting in the very near future as the official governmental Disclosure Announcement occurs—extraterrestrials are, and have been for thousands of years, present with us both on and around Planet Earth.
I sincerely hope ministers know more than my experience has taught me you do. There is so much to learn as the Minister of your church.
I created my website and blog to assist you in this learning process: http://www.pathwaytoascension.com/
I am aware that you are required to officially abide by orthodox teachings; however, I strongly encourage you to study on your own and be prepared for the multitude of questions your congregation will have regarding their own spiritual emergence.
A little more about my qualifications: Attended two seminaries for a total of six years of training and a Master’s in Divinity … 40+ years of metaphysical study, including learning to metaphysically interpret the Bible … A Master’s in Counseling Education … author of 3 books … listed in Who’s Who In The South & Southwest … owner of a website and blog oriented to bridging the gap between orthodox Christianity and the deeper spirituality which is now emerging within humanity as a whole. My twin flame presently resides on a higher plane and offers inspiration for most of my writing. When our galactic family openly lands on Earth (an event that could take place during 2014), Uriel and I will be reunited on the same plane and continue with our Soul Mission together.
Have I blown your mind? It is about to be blown wide open by the flood of heretofore unknown truths being revealed to Earth humans. Your congregants are very likely to turn to you for guidance.
I wish you well as our planet embarks on a greatly expanded spiritual journey!
