"YOU are the divinity you seek. The world needs our best right now!"
 ~By Susan Okins, FSIM Practitioner Member

William Meader's presentation on "The Soul and Its Creative Destiny" was an evening of learning the framework of how souls want to express their wisdom and serve humanity while doing it. He talked about how your soul is expressed through one of seven rays of wisdom and "To know your ray is to know your purpose of being." For example, those who express through the first ray want to use Will and Power creatively to drive new ideas forward. Second ray souls want to express ideas from Love and Wisdom through 'broad inclusivity', which encompasses education and healing.

Each person or even an organism has a personality ray as well. For example, the United States has a second soul ray, which wants to express its Love and Wisdom from "Oneness through Diversity", but has a six ray personality, which wants to express itself through Idealism and Devotion. Often these diverse rays bring forward shadow issues to be worked out. In the case of the United States, "How does a country create Oneness through Diversity when different religions are focused on Devotion and Idealism of their own sect?" Looking at your life through these rays can bring understanding about why you are struggling and how to redirect yourself in greater service to the world.

So what does this have to do with the creative process? Creativity is a process involving the soul, the personality, and intuition. Intuition itself is formless, so when we receive intuitive flashes, we create or form thoughts around them. These thoughts gather an idea into form. When the soul and the personality are fully engaged with each other, working with the same intention, it allows these thought forms to be fully birthed. Bringing the idea through your emotional body gives the idea vitality and a magnetic pull. This is how magic is created around a new idea.

Meader concluded the evening by talking about utilizing the "third eye", your Eye of Vision, to move your idea forward. When you can see your idea through your third eye, it allows you to see the soul of what you're trying to create and serve in the world. It answers the question "What is the Sacred Soul quality of this idea?" You then birth the idea into the world through its expression or appearance into physical form. And in order for this expression to be received by the world, it needs to happen with the right timing; timing that is a component of spiritual or etheric timing, not human timing.

We are so grateful for William Meader coming to MN to share his wisdom with FSIM practitioners, friends and guests. Thank you to all that attended making our first 2018 FSIM Quarterly meeting very special. William said, "Remember, YOU are the divinity you seek. The World needs our best right now!"  

William will be returning to MN late in September for more presentations & workshops. See his website for details.

Workshop to Explore Your Past Lives 
with Rev. J. Thomas Hyder

Rev. J. Thomas Hyder
Saturday, May 5, 2018 
1:00PM - 5:00PM

Over half of the world's population believes in reincarnation and that karma is "destiny from cause and effect". Many major religions hold the belief that we live one life as a Soul and gain experience through many lifetimes and personalities. Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Taoism, and Shamanism teach reincarnation as a basic tenant. Twenty-five percent of Christians accept the reality of multiple lifetimes.

Have you explored your past lives? Have you wondered how and why you feel like you've been in a place before, known someone you just met, or tried to heal by discovering the "originating cause" of an innate physical condition?

In this workshop you will have the opportunity to explore your ancient past. You will be guided to other lifetimes to discover more about who you truly are. You will also gain experience in assisting another on their ancient exploration.

How do Feng Shui and reincarnation intersect? Find out by performing a Feng Shui adjustment in your home from another life time. Register TODAY!

Rev. J. Thomas Hyder has been a spiritual practitioner and student for 40+ years. He has a private practice as a spiritual counselor, and has led many workshops on psychic development, dowsing, and reincarnation. Tom was ordained through Sancta Sophia Seminary. He is a master gardener, and lives Feng Shui through his twenty-three-year marriage to Carole Hyder.
