The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {161} ~ Does Mediumship Improve When A Medium Becomes More Spiritually Advanced?

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {160} ~ Is It Fitting For Children To Be Born Into This Pitful World?

“AS far as I see it, the answer is to be found in human free-will. I do not think that the word “pitiful” is a fair description of your world, though such a blackness covers many parts of it. The earth has its part to play in a universe of ordered creation. The earth is one of the steps in the ladder of life. It is one of the spheres of being through which every individual has to pass as part of the equipment, the training for the spirit. If the earth were not necessary, then the earth would not exist. The fact that it does exsist is evidence of the part it plays in the divine, evolutionary scheme.” ~ The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers, P. 139

When they finally cease to revolve, the different segments occupy their alloted places and the circle is united and complete.” ~ The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers, P. 124

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {156} ~ How Does Spiritual Healing Through A Medium Differ From Magnetic Healing By A Medium?

“THEY are quite different. Magnetic Healing is dependent on the radiations of the medium’s own psychic powers.

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {155} ~ Would It Be A Good Thing For All Healers To Be Able To Perform Psychic Surgery, If It Were Possible?

“NO, there is not one road for all the instruments of the spirit. It is not uniformity that is desired but versatility and variety. Spirit is infinite and therefore has an infinite number of possible manifestations. It is all conditioned by the receptivity of the instrument. For that reason it is affected by the medium’s temperament, upbringing, education, heredity, environment and even past incarnations. All these affect and qualify the kind, amount and type of spirit power that can function through any instrument. It is not for all to follow the same path. You will find the answer in the Bible where it says “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit!” ~ The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers, P. 109-110

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {150} ~ I Have Just Been In Touch With A Case Of Cancer. The Pain Is Just Beginning & It Does Seem Wrong.

“BUT pain can be alleviated. There are medical means of doing so. If pain is the problem it can be dealt with.

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {147} ~ If The Spirit World Is Interested In Propaganda For Spiritualism Why Has It Not Made Greater Effort In Regard To Newspaper Inquiries?

“OH, how little you know. It is always good that knowledge is spread. Who are you to judge the value of propaganda? You do not always know when souls are touched. We have our own methods. Our plans are all prepared, we only need the co-operation of your world to help us. But you must always remember we do not wave a wand. We offer no magical formulae. We seek to reveal the natural laws of the universe. We seek to touch the souls of your people so that they can understand that they are all parts of the Great Spirit and the laws of the Great Spirit can work through them. Our propaganda never ceases. It is not always done by the noises of your world, but by impressing the soul and the heart, by closer union with the Spirit.” ~ The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers, P. 182

The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers {156} ~ What Causes Hauntings In The Cases Where There Is A Mechanical Repetition Of Events, Such As Monks Walking The Passages Of Monasteries?

Usually, however, that which your world calls a ghost is one we recognise use as an earthbound spirit.” ~ The Silver Birch Book Of Questions & Answers, P. 161
