Our Philosophy

United Metaphysical Church of the Palm Beaches is an interfaith church, a light center, where all spiritual viewpoints are respected. We acknowledge the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Philosophy of Divine Metaphysics

Divine Metaphysics is a Science, Philosophy and Religion which accepts the existence of an infinite intelligence. It practices and teaches the spiritual truths recorded in the Holy Bible and other Sacred Scriptures, and as revealed in the life and teaching of Jesus the Christ and other Holy Avatars of God.

Paramount among the spiritual truths is the fact that life is continuous. The change called death is merely a rebirth into a world of higher vibration. This truth is proven through communication, by means of mental and physical mediumship, with loved ones and teachers who live in the spirit world.

One of the truths of Divine Metaphysics is to teach these truths pertaining to man's spiritual and physical welfare. However, the practice and promulgation of these truths do not make Divine Metaphysics a creed because each individual is encouraged to worship God according to the dictates of his or her own conscience.

Some of what Divine Metaphysics teaches and does are contained in the following points:

  • Individuals are morally responsible for themselves.
  • Man is a threefold being - body, soul and spirit.
  • Man is just as much spirit now as he ever will be, except that he is encased in a physical body.
  • We reap as we sow and, life being continuous, we carry into the next world all positive and negative actions taken on the earth plane.
  • An understanding of God's Natural Universal Laws teaches an individual how to love, here and hereafter.
  • All men are brothers and God is their Father. Therefore, all men are divine because they have the spark of God within them. They all have potentialities of God if they choose to develop them.
  • Heaven and hell are states of mental consciousness and not literal abodes.

Other truths are contained in the Declaration of Principles.

Declaration of Principles

  1. We believe in God as Infinite Intelligence.
  2. We believe that the phenomena of nature, both physical and spiritual, are the expression of Infinite Intelligence.
  3. We affirm that a correct understanding of such expression and living in accordance therewith constitute a true religion.
  4. We believe in personal responsibility & that we create our own happiness or unhappiness as we live in harmony or discord with natural physical and spiritual laws.
  5. We affirm that the existence and personal identity of the individual continues after leaving the physical world.
  6. We affirm that communication with Spirit is a natural experience & is proven through mediumship.
  7. We affirm that spiritual gifts, including prophecy and healing contained in the Bible & other Sacred Texts are divine attributes proven through mediumship.
  8. We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
  9. We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed to any human soul here or hereafter.

Definitions

The following definitions are presented to help you understand some of the terms used in Divine Metaphysics.

Divine Metaphysics is a science, philosophy and religion based on the fact that life is continuous and that the phenomena of Nature is the expression of Infinite Intelligence. These facts are demonstrated through communication by means of mediumship, with those who live in the spirit world.

A Divine Metaphysician is one who believes, as the basis of his or her own religion, in communication between this and the spirit world. In addition, he or she endeavors to mold his or her character and conduct in accordance with the higher teachings derived from such communion.

Psychic refers to anything pertaining to the human soul or mind especially super or extrasensory functions.

A Medium is a person whose organism is sensitive to vibrations from the spirit world. It is through this instrumentality that intelligences in the spirit world are able to convey messages and produce the psychic phenomena of Divine Metaphysics.

A Spiritual Healer is a person who is able to impart vital curative force to pathological conditions through his or her own inherent power or through his or her mediumship.

Psychic Phenomena are the subjective experience of vibrations and/or communications manifest from intelligences in the world of spirit. The types of phenomena on which Divine Metaphysics is based include Mental and Physical phenomena.

What is Spiritual Healing?

Spiritual Healing is one of the special phases of mediumship and of Divine Metaphysics which uses the understanding and power of the Natural Universal Laws to impart vital and curative forces to pathological conditions. It is recognized in the New Testament and has been a tenet of both ancient and modern religions.

A human being is made up of three parts: body, mind and spirit. And, it is the energy of the mind which controls the spirit. And, it is the energy of the mind which controls the condition of these parts. Constructive mental thoughts create healthy conditions. Destructive mental thoughts create disease condition.

It is a fact, stated in the Bible, that the normal condition of an individual is to be perfect and healthy in body, soul and spirit. This is the condition which God has made available for everyone. Therefore, there is always a limitless supply of Divine Healing Energy to help a person achieve perfect health. This Divine Energy and the Natural Universal Laws which control it are what a Spiritual Healer uses with the direction and guidance of higher spirit forces, to help an individual during a healing.

Spiritual Healers work in many different ways, but whichever methods they use, all contain common attributes. The healers enter into their own silence and meditation to raise their consciousness to the spiritual plane, request spiritual direction and guidance, and tap into the limitless storehouse of God-supply. They visualize the person receiving healing and request the cooperation of the unseen forces to direct the healing energy to that individual. The healers also visualize the person in perfect health affirming the presence of infinite intelligence; and giving thanks for an influx of peace, harmony and balance. In addition, the healers mentally direct to the individual instructions to attune their own mental energies along positive and constructive pathways.

Although healers can assist an individual by directing healing energies, the success of a healing depends on the faith and desire of the person to use his or her own mental energy positively. Finally, the individual desiring healing need only attune his or her own mind to Spirit so that the forces can operate successfully.

We recommend the George M. Lamsa's translation of the Holy Bible from the ancient Aramaic text.
