                    Linda O'Brien

Linda O'Brien was guided to Spiritualism after being involved in a structured religion and herbalism and massage therapy and other healing arts.
While religions may separate by adhering to different beliefs, it is Spirituality that connects. Connected with Spirit is where Linda is reminded of who she is.  From this place is where she finds strength and gentle patience to find her way on this earth.  Where else can we go from here - but there?
Take Joy - Linda.

Spiritualism offers a belief in

and an awareness toward a

better way of life and

understanding of the Universe

through Natural Spiritual and

Physical Laws.


Spiritualism teaches personal

responsibility as we are held

accountable for our own

actions and are taught to accept

others' paths without judgment.


Spiritualism shows proof of

the continuity of life through

physical and mental forms of

mediumship, offering healing

through this process.


As we apply Spiritualism as a

core belief system we honor

and invoke the God-force

within and all around us.
