Mediumship Development Group Meetup
Frank Kotowski is facilitating this mediumship group, which is open to both SCOL members and non members.
These classes are to help you build your intuitive and mediumistic abilities.
Beginners are welcome!
Q & A and Open Circle
Hi, everyone. For our Mediumship Class this Thursday on Zoom, I will pose five or six questions to the group that relate to psychic and mediumistic readings. I will encourage each person to answer each question. There will be no right or wrong answers; this is meant to be a lively discussion of the work we do with Spirit and our higher selves. I will end the class with a 20-minute open Message Circle.
• Mediumship Meetup Zoom link: Please email Frank for the Zoom link.
• A minimum of four students is required for a class. Please let Frank know by 2 pm Thursday if you plan to come:
Send an email, text message, or phone call

New Moon in Leo
The Leo New Moon on July 28, 2022, is one of the sweetest New Moons we have experienced in a while. It carries the vibration of abundance, joy, and creativity. It is a beautiful New Moon for checking in with the flow of our lives and if we are where we want to be.
Some days, life tends to pass in a blur. We get caught up in the rush and swept up in the flow of our past actions and beliefs. But July’s New Moon is a good time to pause and consider the direction of our lives.
Are we moving in a direction that feels good? Are we taking actions each day that fill us with joy and inspiration, or are we living merely out of habit?
Whatever awakenings or realizations you have around these questions, this New Moon will be on your side, supporting you through any changes you wish to make or any new ideas, habits, or ventures you wish to try.
We can also use the symbolism of the Leo Lion to help guide our direction. Leo the Lion shares the message that we can be proud, confident, and fierce in who we are. When we shed the superficial, when we shed the burdens, when we shed the things that block us from being our true selves, we are able to truly shine.
Venus and Black Moon Lilith are traveling closely together at the time of this New Moon, further amplifying this need to be our true authentic selves, especially when it comes to embracing more of our feminine qualities, which live within us all.
But, the most active planet under this July New Moon is Jupiter. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and expansion. Coupled with the energy of the Leo New Moon, it will guide us to bring more of our heart energy into the world. The world definitely needs more heart energy right now, and this New Moon offers all of us that gift.

We are asking for love donations at this time during our online church services to support our work and to allow us to continue through these troubling times. We are not meeting in person so can't pass around the offering plate to help us with ongoing operating expenses that need to be paid: partial rent, full insurance, Zoom fees, payment to the national organization, to name a few.
Scroll to 'Online Church Service'.
Monday August 1
Lughnasadh takes place at the time of year when the first harvest has ripened and is ready to be gathered in. Its themes are abundance, gratitude and seeing the first signs of what we have sowed starting to pay off.
Because it is the first of three harvest festivals, when we celebrate Lughnasadh, there is a great feeling of abundance; as well as the harvest we have been blessed with now, we know that there is more to come! However, we also know that there is more work to do.
In our own lives, while most of us won’t be working to gather a harvest in at this time, this translates to taking stock of and celebrating what we have created in the last six to twelve months. What results can we see from our labour? This could be work we have been doing on a creative project, in the home, or on a certain area of our life, such as our health, wellbeing, spiritual connection or relationships.

Spiritual Healing Requests
Spirit healings result from law-governed forces being put into operation following the sending forth of a thought directive (prayer). Spirit guides and doctors will diagnose the trouble and its cause, attention being directed to overcoming the cause, and then removing the symptoms.
Please set time aside each day to send healing thoughts for each of those listed below, that they may receive from Spirit that which is for their highest and best needs. Your healing prayers are needed and benefit others in ways we may never know.
To request that a name or situation be placed on this healing list, please send a
note to firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayer for Spiritual Healing
I ask the Great Unseen Healing Force
To remove all obstructions
From my mind and body
And to restore me to perfect health.
I ask this in all sincerity and honesty
And I will do my part.
I ask this Great Unseen Healing Force
To help both present and absent ones
Who are in need of help
And to restore them to perfect health.
I put my trust and love in the power of God.
