Ordaining Order of Priests
in the Order of Melchizedek.

The Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love is a Non-denominational Interfaith Wellness Center.

We are non-denominational interfaith organizations of the Order of Melchizedek. All are welcome to join. You can choose to become initiated, or to become ordained, and if you so choose,you may go on to become an Ordaining Priest. One of the main goals is to help establish and support an international Ordaining Order of Priests in the Order of Melchizedek.

We are wholly dedicated to the graceful, peaceful, and joyous spiritual awakening of humankind and the transformation of the Earth into the Golden Age.

Please note: We have used the term "priest" throughout this web site because it is traditional in the Order of Melchizedek. You may use the term "priest," "reverend," "minister," or another term that you are more comfortable with. Conversely, after ordination, you can use the title Reverend, Father, Sister, or a title that is appropriate and comfortable to you. Using a title is strictly optional. Ordinations:

  • The preparation program for ordination and initiation is the same for everyone, whether or not you are being ordained by an Ordaining Priest. Everyone must complete our 33 one hour meditation sessions with Melchizedek, and write a paper on why you wish to be ordained into the Order of Melchizedek, and what you would like to accomplish with your ordination. For initiation, there are 22 one hour sessions with Melchizedek required and a paper on why you would like to become initiated.

  • Everyone under 18 is invited to become initiated. You must be over 18 and able to receive the ordination on site at the Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love in North Vancouver, B.C. to become ordained.

Interfaith

We believe that there is one God, understood and worshiped in a variety of different ways throughout history. We also believe that each form of worship and understanding serves a purpose suited to the people who choose it for their own path of enlightenment. Each form also contributes to a greater understanding of God and our spiritual nature in its own unique way and we honor all forms of faith, spirituality, and religion.

Cosmic Being

The Universal Christ

We believe that God, Christ, and the hierarchy of Light has continuously interacted and communicated with humankind, helping and supporting the Earth throughout history. This interaction includes many physical incarnations on the Earth in the form of Avatars, Masters, spiritual teachers and leaders. We believe that "The Christ" is a direct emanation of God that has the overall responsibility of the spiritual evolvement and well-being of the Earth and many other physical and non-physical realms throughout Creation. Some people think of this as the Cosmic Christ, or the Christ Consciousness. To us, there is no separation and they are all understandings of the Christ. The Christ is a very vast Being, but at the same time can relate to people one on one through His innate connection with every person on the Earth and His ability to represent Himself to us in a way that we can understand and accept as humans. Note: Christ is neither male nor female, but we have used the masculine form instead of using Him/Her/It, which is cumbersome and not completely accurate either.

When we use the term "Christ," it is to encompass all religions and spirituality. Christ has always held the Light on the Earth through being here physically incarnate, and through inspiration, communication, appearances, and working directly through people. The Christ has had hundreds of incarnations on the Earth as Avatars and spiritual teachers and leaders, most notably in our recorded history as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and Melchizedek.

Note: These are the beliefs and understanding of Yogi Sharanananda, the founder of the Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love. It is not required that you accept any of these beliefs to become a member, initiated, or ordained. It is not required for you to teach these beliefs in any way to be a part of the Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love!

Objectives

We hope to provide a legal means, and support and encouragement for everyone who chooses to be ordained in the Order of Melchizedek.

The Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love is a cooperation of all who choose to participate. An equal joining of Light Workers around the world, helping and supporting each other with love, respect, and caring.

We honor all who decide to join us in accomplishing these goals. At the Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love, there is no rank or hierarchy, everyone is ordained a priest and can choose to become an ordaining priest. It is a matter of choice of service. We are all looked upon as Light Workers working together hand in hand, contributing in our own unique way.

One of our goals is self-empowerment. We would like all people to know that if they feel guided to become a priest that they can trust their inner feelings. There are hundreds of thousands of Light Workers all over the world, and most of them are not awakened to the point of truly understanding who they are and why they are here. Becoming initiated or ordained can help open that doorway of understanding and reconnection. No one will ever be turned down for initiation or ordination at the Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love. All who are called will be honored.

Our overall goal is to help facilitate the Divine plan on the Earth, which includes a graceful transformation into the Golden Age, the Second Coming, and the ascension of all people who choose to take that path of spiritual evolution. We believe that these events will take place slowly and gracefully over a period of years.


Legalities

All priests who are ordained through the Center of Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love are legally ordained. We are affiliated with the Order of Melchizedek that is an incorporated, non-denominational hierarchy in the State of New York and in the United States.

Performing Marriages

As an ordained priest/minister, you will be able to legally perform wedding ceremonies. Since rules vary from county to county, you must check with the county clerk's office, where the couple received their marriage license to find out if there is anything you must do to perform a marriage ceremony in that county in order to perform weddings in there. In 90% of the US, there is nothing you need to do.

In some counties and countries, you may need a letter on fellowship stationary verifying your ordination, and in some cases you may need a copy of the Order's incorporation papers as proof of their legal status. Some places that may require this is in the New York City area, Washington DC, and in certain counties in Virginia and Hawaii. In such cases, we will see to it that you are provided the documentation that you need upon request. Please check early to see if you need these extra papers!

Hands on Healing

Hands on Healing

In some states in the USA or Canada, you have to be legally ordained to do "Hands on Healing." Being ordained under the Order of Melchizedek gives you legal status where this is required.

As an ordained minister, you may wish to establish regular meetings, a healing or prayer circle, study group, or conduct classes in your area. Or, you may wish to legally establish a church in your state or country. You may do this using the Order of Melchizedek name to show affiliation with them as long as it is not in any way implicated or held responsible in any legal or financial matters, or held liable in any way.

Establishing a Clergy Organization Such As A Church

The Federal Government will require evidence that you are a legitimate organization with an active membership, regular meetings, ongoing classes, and a newsletter. In order to be approved as a non-profit organization, you must exist as an organization first. You cannot accept donations until you are approved for tax exempt status.

If you are approved for non-profit status by the Federal Government, you are allowed to receive donations which may be claimed as a deduction on the donor's income tax.

Churches may apply for an exemption from property taxes on land purchased to erect a building. The materials purchased for the build, and the cost of maintenance and supplies for the building, are exempt from sales tax.

Please note that you will still have to pay income taxes on any salary you receive, or payment for counseling, weddings or and other services you perform. All personal income is taxable.

As a non-profit organization, you may apply to the US Post Office for a Non-Profit Bulk Rate for your mailings.

If you are considering legally incorporating as a fellowship, you may wish to consult a lawyer for help in filing all of the appropriate forms for incorporation and non-profit status.

NOTE by Yogi Sharanananda: I have chosen to become ordained in the Order of Melchizedek through the Reunification Church because my philosophy on spiritual ascension and healing experiences and techniques is in agreement with their ascension and healing philosophy which is not fantasy or fear-based.

Immortal BodyIn light of my cosmic mission statement as a Melchizedekian Cosmic Heart Spiral of Love facilitator and ordained minister of the Order of Melchizedek, I am committed to fulfill my cosmic mission through initiation/ordination of Lightworkers who are ready. During my ascension to superconsciousness meditative experience, the Ascended Masters have granted my service intention to activate the Kundalini of initiates for quantum multi-dimensional healing and ascension. Both quantum multi-dimensional healing and ascension of consciousness are dependent on the kundalini activation and Qi meditation as the basic foundational practice for building the life force and the pranic light body KA.

Service is the rent for being.
It is the very purpose of life,
and not something you do in your spare time.
