Spiritual Power and Color

Wings
"The subconscious realm has twelve great centers of action, with twelve presiding egos or entities. When Jesus Christ had attained a certain soul development, He called His twelve disciples to Him. This means that when man is developing out of mere personal consciousness into spiritual consciousness, he begins to train deeper and larger powers; he sends his thought down into the inner centers of his being, and through his word quickens them to life. Where before his powers have worked in the personal, now they begin to expand and work in the universal. This is the first and second coming of Christ, spoken of in the Scriptures. The first coming is the receiving of Truth into the conscious mind, and the second coming is the awakening and the regeneration of the subconscious through the superconscious or Christ Mind."

Explanation

The spiritual power of Order is the ability to choose, decide, command, lead, determine.

And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the lord. -- Joshua 24:15

Quotes
  • Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (order) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. — Matthew 5:17
  • The divine idea of order is the idea of adjustment, and as this is established in man's thought, his mind and affairs will be at one with the universal harmony. — Charles Fillmore
  • To put the world in right order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right. — K'ung-fu-tzu (Confucius)
  • In order to succeed, we must first believe we can. — Nikos Kazantzakis
Poems 
“When the Bible says, ‘For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them,’ (Matthew 18:20) Jesus is referring to using your spiritual powers together to magnify them. By using or calling on Faith and Strength together, we will achieve more. By pairing Wisdom and Power, we will speak words of truth with authority. By combining the spiritual powers we multiply them.”

  — paraphrased from Rev. Dona Gilsdorf during a Twelve Powers class

In 2010 Unity® celebrated the Twelve Powers: http://www.unity.org/twelvepowers/. Among other things, they have educational articles, meditations, inspiring prayers, helpful affirmations, and music.
