Qualifications for Extra-Sensory Perception (088-2 Sunday 6/15/1958)
Speaking of man's evolving awareness of his own finiteness and limitation, Flower tells of man's gradual shift Godward and the slow unfolding of extra-sensory perception. She describes the different faculties of the sixth sense including telepathy, clairvoyance, clairsentience, intuition, theophany, and channelship explaining that we all possess these gifts in a dormant state until we develop a deep interest in God. She warns of the great costs to be considered and the need for spiritual moral courage, integrity and sincerity. Excerpts...
Aligning All of Our Vehicles with Healing Currents (109-2 Sunday 4/26/1959)
Speaking of the interconnection between mind, body and emotions and the need for inner wholeness and oneness with the Divine Indwelling, Rev. Newhouse uses the example of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde as a man with a divided nature. She tells of Bishop Stephen Neil of England who helped people suffering from nervous problems to learn to identify the dividedness of their nature and to work to unify it. She presents the work of Psychiatrist Dr. Abraham Lowe who held recovery meetings for mental patients to teach them to recover from their illness by learning to use their muscles to train their brains to resume rightful management of the body. The power, oneness and maturity of the Lord Christ is given as the greatest example of wholeness the world has ever known. Excerpts...
Seership: Its Role and Value (136-2 Sunday 9/11/1960)
Flower talks about the purpose clairvoyance serves spiritual seekers and leaders. She uses many examples from the prophets of the Bible to modern day seers. Clairvoyant talents come for one reason, to cause people to be aware of the superconscious that is within them and of the Divine overshadowing reality which envelops them, and to make them conscious participants in the world of the Divine. The lofty aim of religion is to bring us to that wise development of sensitivity where we will be able to know union with the Divine in an aware, in a direct, in a very reverent sense. Excerpts...
The Bridge of Realization (144-2 Sunday 1/15/1961)
Flower talks on the importance of developing and using our spiritual abilities to become more God aware. We must, as we go onward, see that we will be sensitized to Spirit safely only as we live the regenerate life, and only as we become more honest, more devoted, more self-sacrificing, more in love with God, and aware that God is our greatest need. She describes spiritual realization as a bridge. It is a mediator between our incompleteness in the physical and in the superphysical realm between those wondrous faculties we possess which could link us to wholeness and everlastingness, the spirit of beauty, the spirit of goodness, the Spirit of Christ. Ours is the choice. Excerpts...
The Third Eye and What It Signifies (161-1 Sunday 9/24/1961)
Flower addresses the reality of Extra-Sensory Perception, a faculty sometimes called the Third Eye or Second Sight, which is present in everyone but dormant in most and which provides information about the physical worlds as well as worlds beyond. She tells of prophets of ancient and more modern times who were skilled in its use including MacDonald, Elijah, John, Boehme, Swedenborg, Arthur Waite, Martinez Pasquales, Abbe Fournie and Jean Baptiste Willermoz.. She speaks of false prophets that focus on the glamorous, and the gradations of progress in the flower, rock and tree worlds. She says she would not give anything for her ability to see this other world. Excerpts...
Living with Extra-Sensory Perception (201-1 Sunday 10/7/1962)
Rev. Flower Newhouse explains that all persons possess a spiritual faculty within but few have trained themselves to bring it forth. Seeing spiritually is both a great opportunity and a Divine obligation so courage, responsibility, reverence, patience and perseverance are required. She addresses the priceless intangibles brought by group worship and changes in auras when one enters a place of worship. Saying she would not give up development of sight for anything, she describes a special blessing from the Lord of the Mountain at Frazier Mountain, seeing a deva temple, being summoned to Angelic strongholds and holy cities and the great wonder of seeing an single Angel and Angelic Hosts. Excerpts...
Unknown Forces behind Strange Events (225-1 Sunday 6/9/1963)
Explanations of why unexplained things happen. Includes research and writings on paranormal events. People disappearing and never found again. Gives examples of many strange happenings that prove there is a fourth dimension. Excerpts...
Psychic Conditions We Must Overcome (242-1 Sunday 2/16/1964)
We possess seven senses, two of which are affiliated with the inner side of our beings. Inner unfoldment of higher traits was given to the disciples. Flower referenced the book Realms of the Living Dead. Augusta Curtis shared with Flower meeting with an aviator who just lost his life in battle. Flower discusses the unwise use of an ouija board. It is possible while still in physical bodies to tune in to the Hall of Learning, Hall of Wisdom or Lodge of Masters. Excerpts...
How to Receive Richly from Nature (284-2 Sunday 8/1/1965)
Flower emphasizes the importance of tuning in to the Divinity in nature when we are in the out of doors. We must want very much to find God in His garment of nature. And if we keep our attention observant and alert, attuned, and grateful to His Presence, we will begin, even through our five senses, to be conscious of things we never realized before. She tells us that mountains are spiritual centers and that we should yearn to love mountains, if we do not already do so. Flower describes that when flowers and trees are watered and cared for lovingly by us they respond like pets. Excerpts...
Our Winged Faculty: The Sixth Sense (298-1 Sunday 1/30/1966)
Everyone has a sixth and seventh sense. The sixth sense is aware of realities that are taking place at distances, telepathy, being able to pick up thoughts from others. The seventh sense is the sense of motion in the inner worlds, traveling to a distant place as quickly as thought and returning. Included are many accounts of people using both of these higher faculties. Ways that you can tune in to your own sixth and seventh sense. Excerpts...
The Chakras that are Present in Us (325-1 Sunday 3/19/1967)
Flower describes the chakras, their appearance, colors and location in each of the higher bodies. Explains their differing functions in each of our inner bodies. Describes three energies coursing through thespinal cord–the life force from God the Whole courses down; Vitality energy spirals up from right side of spine; Kundalina fire begins on left side of spine implanting its energies at the seven sacred centers. States that God in us, our Divine spirit, has its outflow through the heart chakra. Notes that on Palm Sunday our Lord Christ was aware of the tremendous background that He had behind Him. 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...
In Nature's Glories Are Great Lessons (368-1 Sunday 8/4/1968)
This talk inspires one to go out into nature with a whole new outlook and receptivity than one has previously experienced. Flower shares with us how we can benefit from the great blessings nature has to offer us not only on a physical level through our five senses, but how we can be touched and blessed on a superphysical level as well. She says, that the more casual you are in nature, the more dormant your inner faculties are. But as it is true with everything, the more appreciative you are, and that is one of the things you have to do in approaching the Spirit of Grace, if you sound appreciation through all of your five senses, plus your sixth and seventh senses, you will not only give something to the Divine around you, to God in nature, but you will receive something from the Divine itself. Excerpts...

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.
