What Can I Do With My Metaphysical Degree?: Graduates in Action (Worldwide) for examples of the various and diverse services our participating graduates are providing with the credentials they have earned through our university system.
Metaphysical science explores reality beyond what physics currently acknowledges and uses the knowledge gained to benefit life on earth, both individually and collectively. By its very nature, metaphysical science covers a wide range of subjects, such as yoga, astrology, polarity, karma, spiritual healing, tarot, graphoanalysis, quantum field, vibrational energy, and more. Although the range is wide, the basic denominator is the search for truth, purpose, and meaning in life, which cannot be isolated from basic spiritual questions. There are numerous career opportunities in this all-encompassing field of metaphysics, including teaching, spiritual counseling, life coaching, healing, ministry, and professional speaking, to name a few. This program is designed for students wishing to write books, teach, or minister in any metaphysical capacity in which they are called.
Metaphysical counseling offers insights to explain those aspects of a person which exist beyond the senses’ ability to perceive, such as influences of culture, family, friends, the media, and religion. With a spiritual understanding of the world in which you live, you can begin to make adjustments in your life, for greater fulfillment and more freedom. Metaphysical counselors facilitate spiritual awakening and connection to “God, Source, All that Is, the Divine, Higher Power,” or whatever you choose to call the spiritual connection.
The Doctor of Divinity degree is usually chosen by someone who has already established a ministry or church or is planning to do so. A degree in divinity can be directed toward a particular religion or be metaphysical in nature. Those interested in direct research or writing about a particular aspect of ministry, such as New Testament and early Christian studies, ethics, religion, gender, and culture from a metaphysical perspective would do well with this degree.
Pastoral counseling is a branch of counseling in which ordained ministers, rabbis, priests and other non-ordained lay persons provide counseling services. Pastoral counselors integrate modern psychological and metaphysical thought and method with traditional religious training. Therefore, counselors are able to address psycho-spiritual issues in addition to offering the traditional spectrum of counseling services. Pastoral counselors can work from within a particular religious denomination or across several religious denominations. The focus of the counseling relationship is God or Spirit centered.
The channeling of healing energy, or prana, from its spiritual source to someone requesting it is called spiritual healing. The healing energy comes through the healer from a higher source––Universal Consciousness, Infinite Universal Energy Source, or God––and not directly from the healer. Methods of healing can include spiritual mind healing, absent healing, passing over of the hands, and more. Note: metaphysical treatments can complement medical treatment, which may help prepare the body for healing, while metaphysical treatments direct Universal Consciousness to do the actual healing.
New Thought Ministry
This ministry emphasizes the practical implementation of the power of thought and feeling in helping spiritual enlightenment, wholeness, health, and prosperity to emerge. This degree is usually chosen by someone already working in a ministry or church open to metaphysics, or someone planning to start a New Thought ministry of their own.
Holistic Counseling Ministry
A holistic counseling ministry involves working with the body, mind, and spirit in a spiritual or religious setting. This degree is usually chosen by someone who is already working in a religious setting or someone planning to start a ministry.
