Let Your Words Be Creative (003-2 Sunday 6/6/1954)
The Power of Words (020-1 Sunday 3/20/1955)
Our words affect others and we are accountable for every word we utter. Count Alfred Korzybski, the founder of the Science of Semantics, studied the use of words and their effect on others. Stuart Chase made a study of the word idealism. We must speak according to the standards of spiritual truth. We are, to a certain extent, co-workers with God.
The Thoughts and Character of William James (023-1 Sunday 4/17/1955)
Review of Ralph Perry's Book.
Seven Bodies Series (4 of 5): The Meaning and Right Uses of Causal Realities (033-2 Sunday 10/23/1955)
Rare glimpses into the soul which is dormant until exercized. Our soul counsels us and we receive revelations or understanding. Describes appearance of the soul in the aura. The soul has the equivalent of energy, feeling and mentality raised to their highest. Increase soul awareness through reverence for God and overcoming thoughts of appearances.
A Potpourri of Spiritual Thoughts (035-1 Sunday 11/6/1955)
Growth in the Handling of Our Emotions (057-2 Sunday 9/23/1956)
It is important for us to learn to control our emotions by choosing our thoughts and interpretations of others constructively.
Open the Heart to Nature (070-1 Sunday 7/7/1957)
Most of the greatest things in life are silent, and they will meet us and enrich us in silence. The stars are silent, the growing flowers and trees are silent, and gravitation. The inspiration of thoughts comes silently too. As we approach God, we want to meet Him in such silence that we silence all of ourselves and we listen to the reverberations and the rejoicings that are broadcast from His kingdom.
According to Thy Faith (089-2 Sunday 7/6/1958)
Faith teaches us to stand at ease and restfully while God is working out all the answers in a way perhaps beyond our comprehension and our expectation, and in a much more interesting manner than we would idealize. Through sharing several examples of individuals, Flower describes what living in faith means. As we give our thoughts only believing one pointedly to the good side, we shall see that faith is creative and productive thought. And never have we any right to think in any other way
As Christ Might Idealize Christmas (102-2 Sunday 12/21/1958)
Flower describes the Christmas symbols and their meaning to Christians. She gives her thoughts on what Christ would like for humankind.
His Word was with Power (105-2 Sunday 2/15/1959)
Lent is a glorious time of unfolding. Lent requires maturity of the Christian because it symbolizes all that man must undergo to become master of his own being. We should welcome the active side of Lent and the contemplative side, and study the Word during Lent. Jesus was very insistent on the proclaiming of the Word. Therefore we are responsible for proclaiming it. The words of God have flowed forth from the invisible to the visible through the written word and the spoken word, and even more than that, they have incarnated in changed lives.
The Probing Mind Finds (120-2 Sunday 11/29/1959)
Meaning of the Spiritual Sun (125-1 Sunday 1/10/1960)
Since earliest times God was thought of as great light and in the Christian faith we read our God is a consuming light. Light as in the form of fire is the purest of all elements, indeed it is so pure that very few spiritual individuals understand it on this earth and very few scientist's will ever know it in its entirety. We should think about this glorious light and this spiritual fire by which we are invested because we know that the greatest souls of earth have been the fire bands of spirit. And we know that whereever there's one awakened by God, that fire of spirit will be found through him with ever successively awakening light within others. So in deed we turn our thoughts to this subject of fire and of light and of the spiritual sun and of the solar logos itself with renewed impetus.
How Thoughts Influence Life (in San Diego) (150-1 Sunday 4/23/1961)
Flower stresses the importance of being aware of and using rightly the power of our thoughts. You think a thought and it is a living thing. It is a moving thing. It is color. It is pattern. And the clearer your thought is in meditation or prayer, the larger the pattern of your thought will be as it moves along. If you are very reverent, your thought pattern will move up. It is very important for every Christian to arouse himself, to shake off the lethargy that has been upon him, and to see that his mind is fully dedicated to God because there is that above mind, which is much greater than mind, which will use all the forces of the mental powers in order to guide them, to instruct, to teach, to mold, to bless the energies of consciousness as well as of emotions and of the physical body and of the affairs in the world.
Teachableness: The Art of the Spirit (174-1 Sunday 2/4/1962)
Learning depends upon teachableness. Flower stresses the importance of our being willing to change and grow by being teachable. Through several examples of individuals who significantly changed their outlook on life and their circumstances, by being open to trying a new approach, we are taught that we should change our approach as well. If we can raise our thoughts, then through holy enthusiasm, through teachableness, through creativeness, we will have a doubling and an expanded consequence of pleasure and of goodness in our own experiences, and for that we should be most grateful and we should be most eager to anticipate it, to welcome it, and to move towards it.
The Magic of Giving Thanks (236-2 Sunday 11/24/1963)
Discussion of the first Thanksgiving and how it came to be a legal holiday. Now people have many reasons for being thankful, but it should not take a certain day a year to remind them of their blessings. Gratitude has a healing quality. If we could see clairvoyantly we would notice that our thoughts changed from flat thought forms of a neutral or beige color, which is a nondescript form of thinking, to thinking in terms of beautiful rounded thought forms which suddenly burst their rounded form and became like flaming pyramids of orchid colors and these colorful forms would travel swiftly into the great light of God.
Seven Bodies Series (3 of 6): The Mental Body and How It Functions (1 of 2) (261-1 Sunday 10/4/1964)
Know that at all times that you are responsible for what you think, and what you think you ordain for your destiny. Do you like what you ordain? If not, change it before it manifests. Flower emphasizes the importance of spiritual thinking as opposed to ordinary human thinking. She describes what happens to us when we allow our minds to wander aimlessly or possess negative thoughts and images. She gives guidelines in purifying, refining, and redirecting our thinking to a higher level that in turn lifts us spiritually. She shares Carl Jung's insights on how mental thoughts affect the human subconscious and the discoveries he made when he embarked on his own very personal experiment exploring his own thoughts. Flower further stresses the importance of refining our own mental bodies to help us with our spiritual growth.
Powerful Perspective (290-1 Sunday 10/3/1965)
Thought Dynamics (297-1 Sunday 1/16/1966)
Man's mind is his most potential as well as his most neglected instrument. We are responsible for our thoughts. Description of how our atoms are used when our physical life ends. Flower described three levels of our minds: sub-conscious, conscious, and super-conscious. Flower's advice to a woman suffering from depression. We should dwell in a consciousness of agelessness. Talk includes Flower and Lawrence's discovery of Questhaven. Description of forms, color and movement of our thoughts and prayers. We must erase negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones.
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.
The Special Power of Silent Effort (300-1 Sunday 2/27/1966)
Speaks of consciously entering the Great Silence, explaining that we must have outer silence in order to enter the inner silence. Flower stresses that more is often accomplished through silence than through words, and suggests that we can help those in need by holding them in the silence. She gives personal examples from her work and tells of hearing the Music of the Spheres outside in the silence of the night. To be a channel for the releasement of archetypes of beauty, purposefulness and usefulness we must be silent. She tells us that silence strips us of our egotisms. We are only ready to pray, meditate, serve or speak when we experience first relaxation, then patience and finally silence.
The Tremendous Creative Influence of Thought (355-2 Sunday 3/17/1968)
Flower Newhouse describes in detail the power of thought. Through several examples, she shares the superphysical aspect of thought, its color, form, and effect. She says, 'We learn through extrasensory perception, through extended vision, that thoughts have activity, they have motion. Thoughts have color and thoughts have formů realizing then, that thought is not only creative and has influence, but thought is something, it does something, it moves somewhere, you want to see that it's going the right direction, and it's going into the field where, that is the reservoir of the Christ Spirit, where it can be acted upon and brought to you when you are ready for the right answer.'
The Art of Cultivating and Controlling Thought Power (382-2 Sunday 2/16/1969)
Let this vine be in you, which was, and is, in Christ Jesus. This is the goal of evolution. This is our innermost aim to come to that state of consciousness wherein the highest in us thinks through us and uses us as its channels. Flower describes how meditation can help us refine our mental body, and emphasizes the importance of choosing our thoughts, words, activities, and relationships from a higher level. If we do this, you can be that one in your field of service that lifts the whole atmosphere into a more wholesome place in which to function, wherein greater brotherhood or sisterhood is realized, where thoughts of a constructive order are given precedence over discord.
Beauty's Endowments to Spiritual Life (508-1 Sunday 6/25/1972)
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. Further, she makes us aware of the many forms of beauty, including literature, arts, music, dance, and nature, among others.
Tremendous Power Lies in Words (510-1 Sunday 7/23/1972)
Stewardship's Blessings and Challenges: A Basic of the Spiritual Life (512-1 Sunday 8/20/1972)
In this talk on stewardship, the aspects of giving of our time, energies, and money in various ways is discussed. The importance of our attitudes, thoughts and motivations toward abundance are also pointed out. Flower says, that most persons think of stewardship only from the standpoint of money, but it also pertains to our time and our energies, and we need to be just as wise in our use of these two aspects as we are of the supply we are privileged to earn. It is negativity in consciousness and behavior that causes us to have a stoppage of force between the Divine and our outflow of good to the world.
Concentration: A Key to Effectiveness (547-2 Sunday 1/20/1974)
Learning to Think Effectively (588-1 Sunday 8/24/1975)

She tells us our consciousness is an eternal gift, and that we are preparing ourselves for that time when we are not in physical form, but all consciousness.

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.
