THE 12 FACULTIES

The faculty for the month of September is:

Order

The Power for this month is Order, and is represented by the disciple James of Alpheus. The coordinating colour is light green, and its location in the physical body is the navel.

Affirmation: "ORDER is my ability to keep “God First” in my continuous development, and God first in my life is revealing my very next step to me right now."

Order is the first law of the Universe. We are all on a journey of consciousness, development and transformation. Our goal is to attain Christ-consciousness, which we achieve by being true to the spiritual principles we believe and live by.

Our vehicle in this spiritual journey is a physical body propelled by our thoughts and feelings, which originate from God our Source, as pure Wisdom and Love. Order is your ability to develop consciousness in proper sequence - mind, body, affairs. If our body is out of order, so are your emotions. Your Inner Christ transforms your consciousness, your thinking, from confusion to order. Divine Order restores in you whatever is out of sequence.

As Order reveals whatever adjustments you need to make, you discover yo have more than enough time to do all things. Less time is necessary when things are in proper sequence. Divine Order will always reveal to you enough time to do all these things that you are meant to do.

Whenever you feel you don't have enough time to do all that you have to do; if you don't know where to begin, say “God first” to start your consciousness accepting the proper sequence of information. You will find you are always in the right place, at the right time, learning whatever the perfect lesson is in that moment. You are in perfect Order.



Overview of the Twelve Powers

Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity with his wife Myrtle, believed that we can learn to use the power of God within us to improve our lives. This magnificent God-power flows through every cell of our body all the time. Fillmore specified twelve centers, or chakras, twelve specific energy points in various locations throughout our body, and named each one of them. He related one of these faculties, or "Powers" as he called them, to each of Jesus twelve disciples. They are presented here in the same order in which they appear in his book, The Twelve Powers of Man. Since there are twelve months in a year, one power is recognized each month, beginning with Faith, in January, Strength in February, etc.

From Unity's "Revealing Word" we learn that metaphysically, twelve refers to spiritual fulfillment. These twelve great centers of action symbolize the twelve spiritual gifts, or powers, and dwell in the realm of our subconscious mind. We remember always that these are spiritual powers which must be understood and applied on a spiritual level.

In Genesis 1, we read, God made man in God's image, male and female he created them, meaning that all of us have been created with both a masculine and a feminine nature. Six of our mind powers are feminine, feeling powers, and six are masculine, thinking powers. Thinking is masculine, it is conscious, objective thought. Feeling is feminine, and it is subjective thought. Our mind powers respond to our thinking and feeling as we command them one by one to do their mighty work within us.
