I do not wish to rush this, this is too good to be true, it is like having an everlasting universal chocolate bar."— C.B., UMS Student
"Thank you very much for your wonderful comments and suggestions that you sent to me with my exam results. It is very important that the wonderful staff at UMS respond to the students work and goals.

Thank you once again for your support, and may 2010 bring you and yours much peace and blessings, in Oneness." — J.D., UMS Student
"I feel like a different person now after learning so much about Metaphysical Science. I think I'm finally getting it. Sometimes I catch myself looking at my human self and really experiencing being aware of my oneness with everything. I had an experience one day at work. I was washing my hands and I noticed the orchid on the counter. I started to admire the flower and all of a sudden I fell so in love with the white orchid that looked so beautiful. I felt deep within me something I've never felt before. It was a presence of love, beauty and bewilderment all at ones. I've been awake ever since. Thank you!" — LQ, UMS Student

to 3 tracks last night and drifted off into peaceful oblivion.” — M.A., UMS Student
can’t believe a school like this actually exists! The lesson plans

students an extensive background of information. UMS has been a great
program for not only learning more about Metaphysics, but also myself.
Thanks!" — M.S., UMS Student

is a gift to the soul. The need and desire for a college such as this
has been long awaited. As the mother of a UMS student, I know this material
is definitely broadening his awareness. I am very excited for his future!"
— C.S., mother
"This program is not only affordable, but I have spoken with several friends who enrolled in other programs that did not provide even half of the materials UMS has listed. One of the main reasons I enrolled was because of the wide variety of coursework that is available to UMS students that cannot be found anywhere else. This would be the first and only program I would recommend to those searching for higher learning." — K.P., UMS Student

am astonished at how happy I am with the whole UMS program. I feel like
a sponge and I am thirsty for more information... The meditations are
not only enjoyable, they are helpful in so many ways and sometimes life
altering. Christine defintely has a gift. I enjoy the meditations every
evening when I lay down to sleep." — B.W., UMS Student
so much! I am thoroughly enjoying my experience with UMS! I am learning
much and really feel like I am coming into my own!" — R.B.,
for sending me the course materials, they are very informative. I loved
the course "Pranayama" and wonder how I lived my life without
the knowledge of these breathing techniques. Now I am doing the "Nadi
Shodhnam" and "Kapalbhatti" every day and enjoying it.
I am enjoying each and every course from your university and enhancing
my knowledge. Thanks!" — B.S., UMS Student
am so excited about the wealth of information that is made available through
UMS, it has made learning so much easier, unlike before, trying to find
the appropriate book that explains what I am experiencing at the time.
Unlike most people, who look for a book to learn from, I was trying to
find the book to answer questions on what I was going through at the time.
And UMS has answered so many questions left unanswered through the years,
plus so much more that I never even thought to ask about. I am so glad
that I was directed to the UMS website last year, it has made a word of
difference for me. Thank you!" — T.R., UMS Student
is the most spiritually enriching program I have ever come upon…
I am honored to say that I attend your University. A University built
on integrity, generosity, and love… Your program is highly affordable
for what we receive as students… I have learned so much about myself
through the courses, meditations, and lessons. I enjoy this university
immensely; from the course material, to the fact that it is not a 'one
size fits all approach.' I can't tell you how much it means to me to be
praised for thinking outside the box, since that's what metaphysics is
supposed to be all about.” — A.D., UMS Student
have been VERY IMPRESSED with each course I have taken so far. They have
been interesting, well researched and well written. I am proud to be associated
with UMS!!" — J.S., UMS Student
find your coursework and meditations to be very useful in my personal
journey in this life. I have already seen a different even more beautiful
person walking and talking because of my choice of study with UMS and
I would personally recommend UMS to anyone that wishes to improve their
lives and hopefully others also. I will pay more only because I won't
cheat myself or others, not that I have much monetary funds but because
if anyone wants to help others I believe you must get as much knowledge
and wisdom as possible." — R.P., UMS Student
"I am really enjoying this program so far, and found it accidentally on the internet while searching for 'inspirational messages about marriage!' I had never heard of UMS and was bit unsure, until I checked out the 501 (c) 3 designation... I know they are hard to get. And I talked to Devon one day...she seemed very nice and intelligent! I guess some accidents happen by design, right?" — B.P., UMS Student
"I am honored to receive this degree, the process of working toward it has changed my life. Through my studies with UMS I have experienced wonderful and profound spiritual growth and been introduced to so many fascinating fields. Many of these fields I would have otherwise been unable to explore. THANK YOU to everyone at UMS, and I am looking forward to continuing my studies with UMS." — F.M., UMS Student
"The UMS curriculum has far surpassed my expectations and is head and shoulders above all the other Metaphysical schools/university's that I have investigated. Many of the other schools are also significantly more expensive, with only an 1/8th of the information given by UMS. I have been studying the field of Metaphysics for more than 15 years, and I find that I have learned so much more than I ever thought possible. The texts, exercises and meditations are truly amazing sources of concise, accurate and wonderful information. I know I will be using these texts years into the future for the wealth of knowledge and reference. I am so grateful that I have found such a beautiful school with such supportive and caring staff as well. Thank You!" — V.F., UMS Student
"I can't tell you how excited I am and how grateful I feel to be able to take these courses. I am also very grateful for the time you all take to comment on my responses and make this experience a personal one. Perhaps by the time I graduate I will have made some 'new' friends and multiplied my enjoyment in this illusory experience of time where we all believe we are separate! Thank you, love and light always." — S.E., UMS student
"You are very kind in your responses...just workin on making my way through and lovin' it all! UMS support and the courses brighten up my days and the sharing with others is fun too. A few people have asked what I'm doing these days. When I tell them they are so excited and want to hear more. They cannot believe there are Degrees in Metaphysics. I knew there would be some day, so I just kept looking and finally there you were! In perfect Divine timing for me. Blessings to you and yours and Blessings to all the incrediblely devoted and sincere assistance from UMS." — N.P., UMS Student
"This program has literally changed my life. I was in search of answers that no one person has ever answered. But the course material in its entirety has answered everything. The meditations and spiritual exercise have helped expose the true essence of who I am. I would not change one thing. I see everyone as Divinity. I also treat them in this manner as well. These exercises are excellent!" — B.G., UMS Student
"This is more than just a Metaphysical Course, it's also a life expanding experience... I am so very grateful to have found University of Metaphysical Sciecnes and be able to take these life enhancing inspirational courses... another Happy UMS Student..." — N.P., UMS Student
"Just wanted to say I am enjoying these classes so much and my family is learning along with me on some things. My 14 yr old daughter is trying some of the material and learning to see auras along with discussing her Spiritual beliefs with me. My husband is amazed at some of the things I have learned and even asks me how this knowledge can help others. When I tell him my goals and how I plan to go about it, he is very supportive and wants to know more. This course of study has benefited my home and I look forward to sharing even more with others. Thank you." — C.D., UMS Student
"I wanted to tell all of you how great this school is. After only 6 courses I have learned so much about the world and about myself. I have experienced things that I never could have imagined. These courses are POWERFUL. I am truly proud to be part of this University." — TW, UMS Student
"You all have given me and other students one of the greatest gifts in this world of the 21st century: the opportunity to share our gifts with the world instead of holding them back out of fear. You all have also helped me attend the school of my dreams (UMS) so I can help other people achieve their dreams in the near future. Ever since I have attended the UMS since August of 2008, you all have taught me that there is no fear in the balance of giving and receiving, only unconditional love." — R.B., UMS Student
"I'm approaching to the end of the curriculum for my bachelor's, and I'm impressed by all the knowledge I've gained during this time. UMS really changed my life and you specifically have helped me tremendously with your advice and guidance. I'm really glad I met you!" — GP, UMS Student
"Yes, almost everyday I listen to the meditations and my favorite ones are CDs from the course on Manifestation Skills. My belief system has been reprogrammed and I am a much happier and better person than I was. I can forgive much easier now and have been kinder to myself. It was others first and I was always last, but now I realized that I cannot give unconditional love unless I do it to myself first, and I could honestly say that I have found my long lost self. Thank you University of Metaphysical Sciences! " — N.B., UMS Student
"I have been meaning to write to you to thank you profusely for your kind and encouraging words on my exam questions. Not knowing what to expect from this course, I thought it would be mostly about increasing knowledge. That is definitely a part of it, with each class more fascinating than the next. These are materials I will refer to again many times. The big surprise for me is that I had no idea how healing and uplifting it would be. There are endless tools you can use to transform your life in positive ways. The iPod has become an appendage for me because I listen to the class meditations over and over. It's like I'm gliding up that "Stairway To Heaven" with Angels singing all around me. I am completely in awe of this opportunity. Thank you so much for this amazing gift." — CW, UMS Student
