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."

Quotes
  • Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. — Romans 12:11
  • Zeal without knowledge is fire without light. — Thomas Fuller
  • No one keeps up his enthusiasm automatically. Enthusiasm must be nourished with new actions, new aspirations, new efforts. It is one’s own fault if his enthusiasm is gone; he has failed to feed it. — Papyrus
  • Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch. — Papyrus
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.
