Web site: La Trobe University, Bundoora, Australia; web page: "New Religious Associations in Australia ", written January 1998. (Viewed 4 July 1999). "Victorian Spiritualists' Union Inc.: Spiritualism is a way of life which combines philosophy, science and religion. It covers a very wide field, and requires a great deal of study and investigation. The Victorian Spiritualists' Union (VSU) was founded in 1870. There is no known date of origin or founder for the religious philosophy adopted by the VSU. The Spiritualist Church grew out of a world wide interest in spirit communication. Spiritualism has no fixed creed or dogma. It relies on continuing communication of Spiritual Teachings through sensitive people called 'mediums', who are able to link with Spirit Teachers who provide an evolving flow of philosophical thought.

The movement was founded in Eastborne, England by Simon Peter Fuller and the Wholistic World Vision group. In 1990 Spirit guidance is said to have triggered major Earth-energy rituals in England. These culminated in the making of an Aquarian Cross in Jerusalem and a ceremonial raising on Glastonbury Tor on April 21st 1991. The event was called an 'Aeon shift' and signifies the movement, approximately every 200 years, of the main planetary energy centre at the start of the new age. Since this time Simon Peter Fuller has travelled the world speaking of the Second Coming of the Christ Consciousness, while using the Aquarian Cross as a focal point for energy re-alignment work on many of the Earth's sacred sites of power.
