Spiritual Awakening
At a time when established religions are losing their identity and support especially among the younger generation, more and more people consider themselves to be "spiritual" as opposed to "religious". People see that their lives are missing some purpose or meaning and undergo a sense of "spiritual awakening". They seek knowledge of the higher self to feel a sense of inner peace, fulfillment and deep healing. At this time they often begin to find their true life path.

Modern Spiritualism
Modern Spiritualism is generally considered to have originated on March 31, 1848 when two sisters, Margaretta and Catherine Fox claimed to have had contact with spirits in their home in Hydesville, New York State. Following the publicity and numerous investigations carried out by prominent scientists of the time it began the popularity of mediumship and allowed spiritualism to flourish and become accepted.

In 1890 the Spiritualists’ National Federation and in 1901, The Spiritualists' National Union came into being in the UK. This helped define the Seven Principles of Spiritualism which are:

1. The Fatherhood of God
2. The Brotherhood of Man
3. The Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels
4. The continuous existence of the human soul
5. Personal responsibility
6. Compensation and retribution hereafter for all the good and evil deeds done on earth
7. Eternal progress open to every human soul
