Seminary Program

This is where we post the essays from many of our Universal Life Church Seminary students. When students finish a ULC course, they write a comprehensive essay about their experiences with the course, what they learned, didn't learn, were inspired by, etc. Here are their essays.

Spirit Quest

Rev. Don Eck

When I started this course I thought wow 30 weeks is a long time, but as each week passed I kept looking forward to the next lesson with excitement.  This has been a course that will be with me for years to come.  Thank you, Amy for putting together such a valuable course.

I found Lesson 3 Grounding & Center of the Head to be a little slow for me.  But with practice I found that this tool works anytime and anywhere.  I drive 47 miles to work each day and I would practice grounding myself as I drove the highway.  Soon I was finding that I could ground myself anytime I wanted to, releasing negative energy and pulling positive energy from the center of the earth. What energy I learned to pull from the earth.

I would practice bringing up a rose for hours, blowing them up and making a new one.  I have learned how to remove negative energy from around me and replace it with a big gold sun.  It has really helped me to deal with some very negative things going on in my life and I am sure this will be one of the most valuable tools that I will practice for the rest of my life.

Thank you for lesson 12 – Chakras.  I was not familiar with this topic at all.  I must have spent days on reading and practicing cleaning out my major chakras. 

The chapters on Affirmations and Asking the Right Questions were very enlightening.  I had forgotten how important affirmations were.  When I had my own Insurance business years ago I had learned about affirmations and over the years I had let them go.  Thank you for reminding me how important affirmations are.

I found the lessons on how the spirit communicates through music, numbers and color very interesting and informative.

The most difficult lesson for me was reincarnation.  I don't believe in reincarnation.  In order to get through this lesson I finally did what you said in the beginning and just worked off the assumption that reincarnation happens and then I was able to come to some understanding with the lesson.

In closing this paper I would just like to say again, thank you, Amy for putting together such a great course.
