THE 12 FACULTIES

The faculty for the month of January is:

Faith

The spiritual power for this month is represented by the disciple Peter. The corresponding colour is Blue and the location is the center brain (pineal gland)

Affirmation: " I have faith in God; I have faith in Spirit; I have faith in things, invisible. "

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” Heb. 11:1. In order to understand the purpose and function of Faith, we must consider the nature of God. God is all good. The source of everything spiritual and material, but the source is invisible. Faith is our ability to draw from the invisible realm into visible expression.

We are always using our Faith faculty to some degree whether we realize it or not. Faith is also pivotal and being fearful is using our faculty of Faith erroneously.

We become more receptive to Spirit when we place more confidence in the “within” than in the “without” as all our faculties move from within to out. Let us always remember to place our Faith in Godís order, in Godís law and in unchanging grace and be thankful to God for our faculty of Faith.

Exercise your Faith. The way to bring forth the God presence, to make oneself conscious of God, is to say: I have Faith in God; I have Faith in Spirit; I have Faith in things invisible. Such realizations of Faith will make God visible to the mind and will strengthen the Faith faculty.


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.
