The Seven principles described here were given in the 19th century through the mediumship of Emma Hardinge Britten. they are widely accepted by Spiritualists and Spiritualist organisations around the world. Here is an interpretation of the principles, not as dogma, but to cause others to at least give them some thought. At the bottom of the page you will find a short piece about Emma Hardinge Britten.


The Fatherhood of God

 The Brotherhood of Man

The Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels

 The continuous existence of the human soul

 Personal responsibility

 Compensation and retribution hereafter for all the good and evil deeds done on earth

 Eternal progress open to every human soul




The Fatherhood of God

By the study of Nature - that is, by trying to understand the Laws of Cause & Effect which govern all that is happening around us - we recognise that there is a creative force in the universe. This force, or energy, not only created the whole universe, but also life itself in its many forms and is continuing to create today. The effects of this eternal creation can be seen around us and this leads us to the evidence that 'God' - 'The Creative Force' - manifests directly, or indirectly, in all things. We know this power as God and as we are part of the Life created by God, we acknowledge God as our Father.



The Brotherhood of Man

Because we all come from the same universal life source we are, in effect, one large family, small individual offshoot from the whole. This means that all mankind is part of a brotherhood. A brotherhood is a community for mutual support and comfort. We are all members of the same divine family. We need to share our joys as well as our burdens; we need to understand the needs of other individuals in order to assist them as part of our service to each other. As we learn to give so must we also learn to receive thereby achieving the necessary balance for our life. We must look not only to the material necessities of our fellow creatures but also to their spiritual needs and help those in need to become strong and worthy of their relationship in the Family of God.


Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels

All religions believe in life after death but only Spiritualism shows that it is true by demonstrating that communication with departed spirits can and does take place. Spiritualist Churches provide one of the venues where communication, through mediumship, is possible and many loved relatives and friends take advantage of this opportunity to continue to take an interest in our welfare. There are also spirit people/teachers who are dedicated to the welfare and service of mankind. Some (e.g. Silver Birch) bring inspiration and teachings whilst others work within the healing ministry.


Continuous Existence of the Human Soul

It is scientifically proven that matter (being part of the creative force, or energy) cannot be destroyed; it merely changes its form. Spirit, as part of the Creative Force is, therefore, indestructible. On the death of the physical body, the spirit continues as an integral part of a world, which interpenetrates our world but in a different dimension. This world is referred to as the Spirit World. In spirit life we have a spirit body, which until we progress far enough, is a replica of our earthly body. We are the same individuals in every way with the same personalities and characteristics and we change only by progression, or otherwise, as a result of our own efforts. Our personal responsibilities do not stop at death.


Personal Responsibility

This principle is the one which places responsibility for wrongful thoughts and deeds where it belongs - with the individual. It is the acceptance of responsibility for every aspect of our lives and the use to which we place our lives depends entirely upon ourselves. It is not possible for any other person, or outside influence, to interfere with our spiritual development, unless we are willing to allow this. No one can put right the wrongdoing except the offender. As we are given freedom of choice (freewill) so also are we given the ability to recognise what is right from what is wrong. We are totally, as well as personally, responsible.



Compensation and Retribution hereafter for all Good and Evil Deeds done on Earth

As with all the other Principles, the natural laws apply and this one echoes the law of Cause and Effect (as you sow, so shall you reap). One cannot be cruel and vindictive towards others and expect love and popularity in return. It must be understood that the compensatory or retributive effects of this law operate now - on earth - they do not wait until we begin to live in the Spirit World.



Eternal Progress open to every Human Soul

In every heart there exists the desire for progress and to every human spirit belongs the power to progress in wisdom and love. All who desire to tread the path that leads to perfection are able to pursue it. The rate of progress is directly proportional to the desire for mental and spiritual understanding. If we do our best in earth life to follow our inward prompting or intuitions; we shall find progress very easy, on earth as in spirit; if not, every step in advancement will follow a struggle against imperfections, which we ourselves will have worked into our natures. Within the Family of God, with all the advantages that our realisation of that state can give us, we are all given the opportunity to be responsible for our own eternal progress.





The most respected advocate in the early modern spiritualist movement is a lady named Emma Hardinge Britten. Emma was born in London. Her name at birth was Emma Floyd. At an early age Emma had shown an interest in and and excelled in singing and as a musician but also as a 'speaker'. She was somewhat a child 'prodigy' a she was earning her living as a music teacher at the young age of 11.

It was as a child that Emma began predicting the futures of people that she met, telling them what she had seen in visions as well as relating information about their deceased relatives, of whom she had no prior knowledge.

In 1855, wanting to pursue a career in acting, Emma moved to New York but her career took a much different path. A year later Emma became converted to the Spiritualist philosophy and found fame as a Psychic Medium. She was influenced heavily by the mediumship of Miss Ada Hoyt and began to develop her own abilities as a medium.

As a young medium, she furnished one of the best genuine cases of early Spirit return. The young Emma, in trance, was controlled by the spirit of a member of the crew of the mail steamer, Pacific, which had sunk and disclosed the facts of the tragedy. Because of the nature of the details given through her mediumship, Emma Hardinge was threatened with prosecution by the owners of the boat when the story was made public, but all the details were found to be true and accurate. Impressed with Emma's accuracy, she was invited to the Society for the Diffusion of Spiritual Knowledge by the famous Spiritualist, Horace Day and began and began hosting seances for them.

Emma's mediumistic gifts included Psychometry, Automatic Writing, Prophecy and Inspirational Writing/Speaking. Emma was best known for her inspiration writings and addresses which were very informative and inspiring. They were almost always given out or written without any preparation and, more often than not, the subject was chosen in the auditorium by the audience, giving Emma no time to prepare them.

As a propagandist for Spiritualism, Emma she was unequalled. She committed herself to spreading the truth about Spiritualism and related areas of thought and travelled extensively throughout England, the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia with zeal and enthusiasm.

In 1870 Emma published the book "Modern American Spiritualism", a huge encyclopaedia of the people and events associated with the early days of the movement. That same year, Emma married an ardent spiritualist, William Britten, from Boston. Emma continued to publish under the surname Hardinge, however, since her professional career was well-developed before this late-life marriage.

She also edited a book called Art Magic or Mundane, Sub-Mundane and Super-Mundane Spiritualism: A Treatise in Three parts and Twenty Three Sections on the subject of Theosophy. It was published in 1898 and was written anonymously. There remains a mystery regarding its authorship and has often been attributed to Emma.

In 1887 Emma founded and edited for five years the Two Worlds of Manchester a Spiritualists' Newspaper. She was also among the six founders of the Theosophical Society in New York, in 1875.

Emma's dream of having a training school for Mediums was realised in 1900 with the founding of the Britten Memorial Institute and Library in Manchester, UK but sadly she never lived to see it, having passed into the spirit world the year before it was opened. Emma passed away in Manchester, UK.

(In the Spiritualist tradition, it is also proper to acknowledge the "Motherhood of God and the Sisterhood of Man".)
