This is the Home Page of the Maine State Spiritualist Association of Churches (MSSAC) which is a hierarchical Auxiliary of the National Spiritualist Association of Churches (NSAC). Although we are affiliated with NSAC the goals are similar to other Spiritualist organizations around the world.
As you browse this site and the links on the pages you may come across some topics or offerings that are not actually part of the recognized teachings of NSAC Spiritualism. Since the Objects of Spiritualsim include the spiritual and secular welfare of mankind classes or workshops are occassionally offered on topics outside of NSAC Spiritualism for exploration with the community.
Spiritualism is not only a Religion that has a tremendous history dating back through time - Modern Spiritualism (considered the New Dispensation of Spirit Communication) dates back to March 31 1848 with the communication by a murdered peddler (Charles B. Rosna) to teenage girls (Fox sister's) in Hydesville, but it also provides opportunities to educate us about a more spiritual life. It provides education in the wonders of Natural Law and the workings of the Spirit Realm.
As Spiritualists we DO believe in God (contrary to the beliefs of many regarding us) but we believe in God as a Divine energy (Infinite Intelligence) that is part of all that exists. That we are a representation of God's creation, that God is within us and that the Teaching's of Jesus regarding Compassion and Love are paramount. We also believe in personal responsibility for our actions and that we manifest our existence as a result of those actions (see our Declarations of Principles).
Beyond this belief we also recognize that after the physical death life continues (Continuity of Life) in the Spirit World and that we have Spirit Guides available to us during this time on Earth if we choose to learn the communication process with Spirit. These Spirit Guides can be relatives and friends or may even come from different backgrounds of culture, religious orientation (Native Americans, Buddhists, Taoists, Greek Philosophers, Ancient Masters) - there are no boundaries to support from the Spirit side of Life except our individual beliefs and mental fears which are of our own creation. They (Spirit) all have one thing in common - to be of service to provide guidance and influence for our betterment. You may say they are our "Angels in Disguise" since they reside in the Spirit Realm.
One learns of their presence and how to communicate through meditation, psychic development and then to the next level of mediumship where one is able to be of service to the community as a medium by identifying Loved Ones in Spirit to affirm that they are ever present and available. Channeling, psychic, astral projection, remote viewing are all terms used for attributes that Spiritualist mediums typically develop through their commitment to be of service to God (Infinite Intelligence).
In addition, Maine has an incredible history for Spiritualism since three of the first camps in the United States were established here. They were Camp Etna, Madison Camp and Temple Heights Spiritual Association (Northport) and although Camp Etna is no longer a member of NSAC it is an honor to recognize them as they still conduct camp seasons for Spiritualist gatherings.
This site is a living, changing element that embodies the love and energy of Spiritualists and spiritual seekers to share information, resources and activities of Auxiliaries here in Maine.
