Seeking Within

The Upper Room

The Upper Room

There are two very special places at Carmel Temple. One is The Upper Room and the other is Blue-White Healing Light near the rear of the Sanctuary. The Upper Room is reserved exclusively for quiet meditation. Many have sought answers, gained insight, and enjoyed the very special energy present. Any visitor to Carmel Temple may visit the Upper Room, with the only request being that you do not talk, in order that the energy not be disturbed.

The Blue-White Healing Light

The second special place at Carmel Temple is beneath the Blue-White Healing Light, near the rear of the Sanctuary. Each Wednesday night we have a special healing meditation there.

We also have a short healing time there after the Sunday service. Each person who attends is invited to sit in one of the chairs under the light. We ask everyone else present to project healing energy to those in the chairs by visualizing them in their perfection.

Carmel Temple has an outdoor labyrinth, located on the east side of the Annex, across the street from Carmel’s Sanctuary. It is based on the famous labyrinth at the Chartres Cathedral in France. Here is a night picture of the well-lit labyrinth, taken from the rear, looking toward the arched front entrance.

The Labyrinth is open and available to walk 24/7/365 with continuous lighting for night walks.

The Crystal Prayer Request Bowl

Crystal Prayer Bowl

The Crystal Prayer Request Bowl is used to collect prayer requests sent to Carmel Temple. It is placed under the Blue-White Healing Light at the beginning of healing sessions in the Sanctuary. The prayer requests then receive the energy and prayers of those present. We encourage you to place into the bowl the name (even the initials will do) of the person, persons, or situations that need prayer or healing energy. This procedure has been very effective and that bowl has an excellent reputation! We encourage you to use it. When the bowl is full, those prayer requests are gathered and placed in the walls of The Upper Room, where they continue to receive the powerful energy of that special place. This loving practice has been used since Carmel’s beginning.

For many years, Carmel Temple has provided a prayer request line by telephone. You may still place your prayer request by calling Carmel Temple at (713) 944-0014. Now you may also email a prayer request right here by filling out the Prayer Request below. All prayer requests will be collected from our e-mail and from our telephone system and placed in the Crystal Prayer Request Bowl at Carmel Temple. This loving practice has been used since Carmel’s beginning in 1970. Either way, your request will be placed in the bowl for you and it will be included in the healing sessions.
