Who is.....?

Post by mac on Tue 30 May 2017, 19:42

We're not a big community.  Now the new website is up-and-running it's left me wondering how many of us would call ourselves 'a Spiritualist'.  

I'll go first.  I AM a Spiritualist and have been for 33 years.  Anyone else?

I wouldn't call myself a Spiritualist, not in the way you are, Mac.  I am just interested in the subject of mediumship and life after death and paranormal stuff in general.  Never had any real experiences myself but I do enjoy hearing and reading about other people's experiences.

I think maybe it's a religion for you.  I don't have any religious leanings, just an interest.

Interesting how you see me.  Spiritualism's a registered religion but for me it's a philosophy, it's what influences how I am in a very ordinary life.

If religion involves churches then I don't qualify.  I go to church once a flood, maybe if there's someone I particularly want to see.  It's probably four years since I went to one last and probably even longer the time before that!  I don't know what the benchmark is for being 'religious' but in terms of conventionally religious again that ain't me.

I'm interested in much the same although I did have some experiences many years ago that have greatly influenced how I've been ever since then.  It underpins how I observe many issues concerning survival and communication but it's not my only influence.  

Spiritualism was the beginning of who I now am but it doesn't determine every aspect of who/what I am.

I can't really answer that question without first defining what exactly is a Spiritualist ...(?)

There are various descriptions and definitions; not all of them agreeing with each other.  What is your definition, mac?

I wouldn't want to define what a Spiritualist is.  

For me, though, I'm a Spiritualist because I susbcribe to Spiritualism's fundamental teaching that our spirits survive the death of our bodies and that some return to demonstrate their survival by communicating via mediumship. 

Purely personally there's no need to attend church or susbcribe to the so-called Seven Principles.

no - You don't have to have anything.

   It's a choice as to whether you call yourself a Spiritualist - there's no formal classification that puts you into a class of 'Spiritualist'.

In that case then you might call me a Spiritualist. 
I identify with the philosophy of Spiritualism for the same reasons that you have given, mac, and that makes me an adherant of Spiritualism, and that I suppose then makes me a Spiritualist.  I believe that when the body dies the spirit still exists in another dimension and that the spirits of the dead are able to communicate with the spirits of the living with the help of a medium, that is the main purpose of Spiritualism.  Although to give it a name is not really all that important.

I wouldn't call you a Spiritualist unless you were comfortable with being called that. 

Even if you're influenced by Modern Spiritualism's philosophy it's wholly your personal choice about using a personal name or label.

Only you decide how you see yourself or define who/what you are.   Smile
