We are an independent organisation for the advancement of Spiritual understanding and self-empowerment of the individual
The Metaphysical Society (MSEC) is a network of qualified, registered Metaphysical Practitioners and Teachers which was founded by Christine King (the Principal) in the early 1990s. It aims to provide a forum for the awakened individual seeking an interesting programme of personal development and spiritual growth. It also serves as a training facility for metaphysical counsellors, practitioners and teachers.
In 1996 the MSEC Practitioner Training Course was accepted by the ICM (Institute of Complementary Medicine) as a recognised training course. Our organisation was the first metaphysical training course to join the Institute. The ICM then expanded into the ICNM (Institute of Complementary and Natural Medicine) and then more lately ownership was transferred to the CHO (Confederation of Healing Organisations).
Our training courses are approved by the BRCP and qualified Metaphysical Practitioners are able to join the BRCP (British Register of Complementary Practitioners) which was established in 1989 and is one of the longest-running multi-disciplinary registers of complementary practitioners and therapists in the UK. We are proud to say that our relationship with the BRCP spans over 20 years.
Qualified practitioners are trained to work holistically with clients on a one-to-one basis using metaphysical counselling skills and psycho-spiritual techniques. This combination helps the individual to understand how the mind works at both the psychological and spiritual level, the purpose of which is to gradually guide the client to a place of self- empowerment. With the support of a metaphysical practitioner, clients can begin to utilise the principles to help restore balance and harmony to their lives by rediscovering the hidden talents, strengths and abilities within themselves.
THE MAIN PRINCIPLES BEHIND
THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE SOCIETY
- We maintain there is One Mind, One Life Force, One Universal Energy or Power permeating all existence.
- We maintain this Power to be: Omnipotence (all power), Omniscience (all knowledge) and Omnipresence (being everywhere evenly present).
- We maintain that the name by which this Power is known is unimportant. Some descriptions are The Source, Presence, Self, The Unmanifest, The Universe, Power Within, Life Force, Creative Mind, Infinite Intelligence, Energy, God, etc.
- We maintain mankind to be an expression of this Power, which individualises Itself as the Spiritual Nature of each person.
- We maintain this Power to be a Power for Good, operating through the Spiritual Laws of Mind.
- We maintain that this Power is a Creative Intelligence. As we open our consciousness to it, we unfold our Spiritual Nature, bringing our lives more into balance.
- We maintain that, on a mental level, each individual creates his or her own reality by means of thought and belief. By aligning our consciousness with the One Presence we can change our experience.
- We maintain that the Spiritual Self within all beings is Perfect (meaning Whole, Complete and Limitless).
- We maintain that our journey is for the purpose of recognising and unfolding our own Spiritual Wholeness by the upliftment of consciousness and the realisation of our AT-ONE-MENT with Life.
NB. Please note you do not need to believe or fully understand the above principles in order to take part in these courses. They will become clearer as we progress through the studies. This list is provided here for completeness and so you can see the principles upon which this training programme is based.
