What is Spiritualism? 

Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World. 

What do Spiritualists believe?

Declaration of Principles

The following Declaration of Principles is published to the world, not as a creed binding on the conscious of the individual, but as the consensus of a very large majority of Spiritualists on the fundamental teachings of Spiritualism:

  1. We believe in 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 true religion.

  4. We affirm that the existence and personal identity of the individual continue after the change called death.

  5. We affirm that communication with the so-called dead is a fact, scientifically proven by the phenomena of Spiritualism.

  6. We believe that the highest morality is contained in the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

  7. We affirm the moral responsibility of individuals and that we make our own happiness or unhappiness as we obey or disobey Nature’s physical and spiritual laws.

  8. We affirm that the doorway to reformation is never closed against any soul here or hereafter.

  9. We affirm that the precepts of Prophecy and Healing are Divine attributes proven through Mediumship.

What's with the sunflowers? 

The symbol representing Spiritualism is the sunflower. By looking closely at the sunflower, you will see that the main stalk often has seven branches or twigs.

The sunflower is representative of Spiritualism in many ways.

  • 7 is a sacred number and is synonymous with the search an discovery of greater truth. 

  • 7 days of the week

  • 7 centers in the human brain

  • 7 energy centers or chakras, each corresponding to one of the seven major glands which determine the quality of the physical body.

  • the human is a seven-fold being,

  • with the potential of seven states of consciousness or perception.

  • the Earth was formed in seven days or phases. 

 The sunflower has 12 green leaves.

  • 12 months of the year

  • 12 signs of the zodiac.

 Each flower has 52 golden yellow petals.

  • 52 weeks of the year

 The center of the yellow frame of petals are 365 rich seeds.

  • the number of days in a typical calendar year.

 The sunflower is well known for turning toward the morning light as the sun rises in the East, as if to say, "Good Morning Great Spirit." This action reflects a key Spiritualist attribute.


As the sunflower turns its face to the light of the sun, so Spiritualism turns the face of humanity to the light of Truth.
