Qualifications for Extra-Sensory Perception
088-2 Sunday 06/15/1958
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.
Aligning All of Our Vehicles with Healing Currents
109-2 Sunday 04/26/1959
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.
Seership: Its Role and Value
136-2 Sunday 09/11/1960
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. Discusses Rd. Rhine and Edgar Cayce.
The Bridge of Realization
144-2 Sunday 01/15/1961
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.
The Third Eye and What It Signifies
161-1 Sunday 09/24/1961
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.
Living with Extra-Sensory Perception
201-1 Sunday 10/07/1962
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.

How to Receive Richly from Nature
284-2 Sunday 08/01/1965
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.
Our Winged Faculty: The Sixth Sense
298-1 Sunday 01/30/1966
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.
The Chakras that are Present in Us
325-1 Sunday 03/19/1967

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.
In Nature's Glories Are Great Lessons
368-1 Sunday 08/04/1968
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.
Beauty's Endowments to Spiritual Life
508-1 Sunday 06/25/1972
We need beauty as much as we need food and health. Flower Newhouse describes spring and summer as the Festival of Reception, then further notes that the Spirit of Beauty is all-giving, and when we are ready to receive and sensitive enough, we will be aware of how richly it adds to our inner life. It requires the purifying of our senses and the ennobling of our hearts and our thoughts.

591-1 Sunday 10/05/1975
Describes characteristics of the sixth sense. Differentiates between positive and negative clairvoyance. Lists several examples of persons demonstrating each type. Gives examples from her own positive clairvoyant training.

Interpretation of Visions
592-2 Sunday 10/26/1975
Differentiates between dreams and visions. States that all vision rises out of the contemplative mood. 'During vision, the mental body begins to receive not only instruction, prophecy, or revelation, but vision too. The observation is most interesting. You are simply an onlooker. Later you realize that what was given was for your growth and for your blessing. At no time did your conscious mind intrude and create the images that you realized.' Recounts several visions, including those experienced by a patient of Carl Jung; shares his interpretations of these visions.
What Should Be Known About ESP?
618-1 Sunday 10/17/1976
Man possesses seven senses, though in this dimension he usually only employs five of them. The more truly trustworthy the clairvoyant individual is, the more he will express both objectivity and humility, and simplicity, or modesty. Clear seeing, when expressed from the background and through the means of Christian mysticism, will be a safe procedure, but without it one is not safe if he has not been well trained and watched by a higher teacher. When he has the training of the initiate and of the mystic, he will be oriented to Divine Good. The openness between worlds is very real to one who is in earnest. Always be in earnest, with joyfulness accompanying your sincerity.
Idealize-Then Measure Up
652-2 Sunday 02/26/1978
We all need to realize in Lent that we have these sandbags to loosen, and the more we do that, the more free we are. And there is nothing in the whole world to compare to the freedom of someone who doesn't just believe in Christ, but who knows Him, who senses Him and God behind all outer living. That person knows a responsibility for his belief in Divinity and in the Christ. His responsibility is to remake himself as best he can. It's an endless job. It's a wonderful work. And it is our lifetime's labor.
