Explains that it is important as we progress in our Christian experience that we love others as well as those souls in the inner kingdoms, and in doing so our hearts shall be lifted.

Seven Bodies Series (2 of 4): The Light Body: The Adonai (200-1 Sunday 9/23/1962)
We need to remember that we are a seven-fold being, that there are great altitudes of consciousness in us which we require in our daily living and which will bless us and give us help and talent if we will remember to call upon them. Flower describes these higher bodies, the Soul, Adonai and Monad, which overshadow us and influence us when our other faculties of mind, feelings and energy are stilled with holy reverence and spiritualized living. Excerpts...
Three Routes of Progress (201-2 Sunday 10/14/1962)
Talk based on research in Akashic records. States that every human life began in Mongolia; had countless incarnations in etheric bodies; then many lives in physical 'stone age' incarnations.

She gives guidelines in purifying, refining, and redirecting our thinking to a higher level that in turn lifts us spiritually.

The Activities of Invisible Helpers (262-2 Sunday 11/1/1964)
Discusses human helpers in the inner worlds, those who help souls who have recently come across. Servers help people who were like themselves when they left this plane. Part of their restitution is to welcome and prepare these souls. Helpers of newly transitioned souls with difficulties (suicides, murderers, murder victims) may take person to sanitaria for healing of inner bodies. Humble helper, a human being who has gone into the higher worlds ahead of the rest of us, is only allowed to help for two generations of humankind. He must know all the circumstances that this person who has newly died has been meeting. After two generations, that's impossible, as our world and its inventions progresses so fast, so; swift turnover of servers of this type.

Flower discusses what influences each of our seven bodies. Each body is distinct, has its own power, but the total is the vehicle and so is it with man. We have these seven fold vehicles and every one of them is intended to be developed and to be used to its utmost capacity and its highest development; and we are daily responsible for making it that. Excerpts...
Seven Bodies Series (6 of 6): Your Invisible Self: The Soul (293-2 Sunday 12/12/1965)

In that preparation he knew how to work on his inner bodies so that the tumultuous acclaim of the excited, fickle, changeable crowd did not excite him. Excerpts...
Music is the Gateway into Divine Presence (396-1 Sunday 7/20/1969)
Flower explains music as a path to higher consciousness. Most persons feel it on the astral; can be used to cleanse heavy emotions. Can step into mental bodies and be analytical. We can step into our soul bodies; this is harder to do; when we listen with our causal body, instead of the music being out there, and we observers, we are instead participators. On causal level we are one with everything we appreciate, and therefore when hearing great music it sounds through one. Describes thought forms, colors and archetypes seen while listening to musical excerpts. Describes inner music at transition to inner worlds. Excerpts...

She tells us there will come a time when audible speech will cease as we will communicate by seeing each other's thought forms, and no one will be able to keep secrets anymore, the truth will be known, therefore, humans will aspire to higher living.

Christian Mysticism is simply a method of reverence and devotion to God. It is a path of attainment which leads to the Divine Reality–to first-hand knowing of God. The mystical path stresses the way of Divine union with God through illumination.
The Living Christ is the Lord of Angels and of men and the model of our own becoming. His service is the broadcasting of the Divine Christ Spirit, the light of redemption. His influence awakens in us the Christing of our own natures.
The Way of Discipleship is a way of drawing ever closer to the Divine Presence. It is a voluntary surrender of the entire self to the service of God. It pays great attention to spiritual realities and goals inspiring us toward inner growth.
Meditation and Prayer are the disciplines that most directly draw us Godward and into the inner worlds. During these moments, we consciously purify ourselves of worldly or personal preoccupations and center ourselves wholly upon consciousness of God.
The Angelic Kingdom consists of beings created by God. They, like mankind, press toward the goal of perfection and union with the Supreme Spirit. Angels are purer and more spiritual than man. Their very spirituality readily makes them mediators between Heaven and Earth.
Nature provides healing and enlightenment. When wisely trod, the path to God through nature employs every faculty inherent in man. In nature, beauty shines in all its pristine essence before us. It is for us to newly discover and translate this beauty to our spirits and our senses.
Reincarnation is the realization that life is a school, striving to awaken and quicken the Divinity within us, striving to bring man from primitive stages of unfoldment to that of greater and more glorious awareness.
The life and writings of Flower A. Newhouse are those of a Christian mystic, and her insights into the inner realms of life provide us with a path to wholeness that she called "Living the Life." These teachings are not doctrine, but a practical guide to the direct, immediate experience of God. Flower's mission was also to reawaken humanity to the reality of angels, a work she began with her first book in 1937, and added to in many published writings and in recorded lectures.
