The Philosophy and Practices of the Society of the Faith Master


The Society of the Faith Master is our optional non-secular gratitude outreach. Gratitude is the Survival Lightkey for us all, empowerment for all, whether you have a religious belief or do not have any such beliefs. All are acceptable in the gratitude immersion world we are building, with those who are willing to live their lives with gratitude.

This society is for those who seek the religious dimension of faith and gratitude. We have a strong dogma or code of belief in the inherent goodness of our species and its future as spiritual beings. Our society is designed to be a high energy place, a happy place, based on building self-esteem, gratitude, praise and faith.

The purpose of our worship services and classes is to enhance the quality of life of our members and to help our members develop community, structure, meaning and a superordinate goal. That means helping our members develop faith, building their self-esteem, teaching them how to use the Gratitude Law of Attraction, and giving them the other teachings of the society such as communication skills, entrepreneurial skills and others.

Healing Through A Gratitude Immersion Life

Living a gratitude immersion life creates a deep inner happiness and contentment no matter what happens. I never understood the Apostle Paul until I became involved with gratitude. The Apostle Paul said, "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things. Philippians 4:9 Not that I speak in regard to need for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. I know how to be abased and I know how to abound. Everyway and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry. Both to abound and to suffer need. Philippians 4:11-12

Change Your Life By becoming Immersed in Gratitude and You Too Will Learn to Be Serene and Content No Matter What Happens

 

As we create the Gratitude Immersion culture as leaders we need to share our worldview of what leadership really is in the context of Gratitude. In the Gratitude Immersion world the purpose of leaders is to make the lives of their followers better, more free, more safe, more joyous, more bountiful and more prosperous and happy by teaching them to be grateful.

This is the Life gift that leaders in the gratitude immersion world must provide by example and by precept:

Community

Structure

Meaning

A Superordinate Goal


The first gift that leaders in the gratitude immersion world must provide is a Community by creating a self esteem based world that members of the group can grow in and live.

This is the second gift that leaders in the gratitude immersion world must provide - Structure by teaching their followers what they need to do clearly and in step by step fashion so they can succeed and build their personal self esteem and the self esteem of others

Thirdly, leaders in the gratitude immersion world must provide Meaning by teaching their followers the value of living a gratitude immersion life for the potentiation of their own lives, the lives of others, the community, and the world.

Ultimately, leaders in the gratitude immersion world must provide a superordinate goal by leading them to projects and programs where they can give to others outside their own families and friends and giving them the skills to be a blessing to the world.

IGEI is a Social Enterprise Corporation

Our Mantra - Always Be Grateful! Always!

The International Gratitude Empowerment Institute  (IGEI) is a social enterprise corporation that has social benefit purposes. The International Gratitude Empowerment Institute (IGEI) sells products and services for creating a gratitude immersion world. In addition to our profit motive, we are creating a gratitude immersion worldwide community based on the Way of Success through Gratitude.

The Way of Success through Gratitude includes these gratitude components:

 
  • Gratitude Healing Ways

  • Gratitude In Business

  • Gratitude & Spiritual Healing

  • Gratitude Communication Skills

  • Earth Gratitude

  • Society of the Faith Master

In addition to our profit motive, it is a social purpose corporation with these additional social benefits and goals:

 

1) Community: To create and provide an environment for low and middle income people to learn how to work together positively by teaching personal self-esteem building and how to build self-esteem in others, thus developing a community based on faith and gratitude resulting in a gratitude immersion culture.

 

2) Youth: To empower girls and women through special programs including sports and entertainment projects for self-esteem building and character development. To enable them to have a superordinate goal of giving to the world with no expectation of personal return such as tree planting projects to fight climate change. To use gratitude in sports to give strength to women and girls to heal from sexual abuse and domestic abuse.

 

3) Entrepreneurship: Develop social entrepreneurship projects through micro-financing of small and medium-sized enterprises including entrepreneurial training programs.

 

4) Technology: To teach skills to minorities, women and youth to become Mobile Entrepreneurs through technologies such as Skype, webinars and podcasts anywhere in the world. Today’s entrepreneur needs to master these skills even if they have a brick and mortar outlet for their business. We will teach them how they can use these new technologies to build their business.

 

5) Spiritual Development: Through our self-esteem building programs we will increase personal fulfillment, enable people to create peaceful loving relationships. When we build self-esteem, we build a person's spirit. Spiritual development is the key to bringing us all together to work and live together in a peaceful world. Spiritual development in our workforce makes people want to be productive, to be creative and to give their loyalty to each other and their employers. Without spiritual development it is difficult for people to lead productive, happy lives.

 

6):  Spiritual Therapy Programs: Many people understand how important it is to build the self-esteem of young people and working age people. But many people don't understand the needs of the Elderly, Disabled and Wheelchair Rider populations. Some see them as unimportant or nonproductive. But many people don't understand how they feel and the benefits we all can gain from them. The fact is, in the IGEI Gratitude Immersion World, we understand that these populations have a great deal to offer. The fact is they have much they can learn, much to feel, and much to share which can help us understand gratitude in many ways.

 

There are many stories of people who are not in wheelchairs but are bedridden, who make their families' lives happy by their cheerful, loving, giving, and self-esteem building personalities. Everyone has something to give. But the fact is, no one can give from an empty dish. No matter where you live there are others around you who need positive energy. How do we give them a way to build their own self-esteem so they can give to their world?

 

Through spiritual therapy you will learn how to use gratitude as a power to build your own self-esteem and reach out into the world to give to others. One way is by being in the outdoors, fishing and being close to nature where you rebuild your wholeness. By creating intergenerational volunteer programs you practice the gratitude skills you are learning. We share with them the spiritual therapy programs of IGEI.

 

Spiritual Therapy is a spiritual healing method that focuses on the rebuilding of inner wholeness. Techniques include gratitude practices, self-esteem building, meditation, affirmations, and reprogramming your subconscious mind. These techniques are based on repetitive actions and interactions, building new connections in your brain, to help yourself and others to grow, become more creative and develop spiritual health. Rebuilding your self-esteem is a vital part of spiritual therapy because high self-esteem is the basis of wholeness.

 

Spiritual therapy is best performed in nature because in nature you are able to reconnect with Mother Earth, become grounded and feel the energy around us. Our original way of life was immersed in the natural world. Once cities formed when agriculture developed, the clearings of civilization through the development of urbanization separated us from our connection with the earth. Spiritual therapy through fishing is designed to reestablish that connection.  Water Gratitude includes fishing as an important ecospiritual component of IGEI. Fishing teaches people to hope, to keep trying over and over again.
