What is a Pass and Why is it Good for You?

PassesPasses are given in Spiritual Centers. The object of the Pass is to resupply your Vital Fluids to improve the harmony of your body, which should result in better physical and mental health.

Your body utilizes Vital Fluids, which is a modification of the Universal Fluids that make up everything in the Universe, that are altered to fit your own spirit and body. Vital Fluid can be thought as an energy forceChakras that maintains the various Force centers, otherwise known as Chakras, which are responsible for keeping all of your bodily functions in harmony. The more Vital Fluids you have, the healthier and more vitality you will possess.

This transfer of Vital Fluids is done with the assistance of two beings. One is passes-applicationthe loving and caring spirit who uses the physical person giving the passes as a channel to supply you with energy. The person giving the passes must be in harmony and full of goodwill toward their fellow beings. As the picture illustrates, the spirit stands behind the pass giver who stands in front of you to deliver the vital fluids.

I have received passes and I have definitely felt better afterwards. Could this just be all in my own mind and I wanted to feel better? Yes, that could be one explanation, but with the other phenomena I have witnessed with Spiritism, I am a believer.

 

 

The Early Church – What Did the First Christians Believe?

Hail ChristIn the book, Hail Christ!, dictated by the spirit Emmanuel to Francisco C. Xavier, there are passages on what the early church was like for the first Christians. The book is set around 200 AD, the Emperor Caracalla had just died, in 217 AD. Christians were still being persecuted. There was, as yet, no organized Bible, only various writings by disciples and others.

In the book, an old Gaul, Corvinus, is talking to Quintus Varrus, about his experiences;

“I too suffered a great deal when I was still young and decided to work in the faith. I was

Pythagoras

Pythagoras

repudiated by everyone and forced to leave Gaul, where I was born, and I lived for ten years in Alexandria, where I renewed my knowledge. The church there remains open to the broader considerations relating to destiny and being. The ideas of Pythagoras are kept there in a large study center to real advantage, and after listening attentively to distinguished priests and the most enlightened followers, I was convinced that we are reborn many times on earth and that the body is the fleeting garment of our imperishable soul. The tomb is the resurrection. We will return to the flesh as many times as necessary, until we have gotten rid of all of our inner impurities, like the noble metal which tolerates the purifying crucible until it casts off the dross that disfigures it.” [Hail Christ, Xavier, 2012, p. 47]

The early Christians knew about our immortal souls and our trials on earth. Pythagoras, was a Greek philosopher and mathematician, who live 500 years before Christ. As with Socrates, he believed in the immortal soul and in reincarnation. The Christians of the day, from the stories recorded from Jesus’ disciples led them, like us today, to understand the meaning behind the many references to reincarnation. They incorporated the writings of the great Greek philosophers into their understanding of the message of Christ.

Corvinus explains further;

“Jesus did not just speak to the human being who passes away, but rather to the imperishable spirit. In one step of his sublime teachings, he warns, ‘It is better to enter life maimed than, have two hands, to go into the lower regions.’ [Mk 9:43] Christ is referring to the world as a school where we seek our own improvement. We come to the earth with the problems we need. Trials are a salutary remedy. Difficulties are steps upward on the great ascent. Our ancestors, the Druids, taught that we find ourselves in a world of travels or in a field of repeated experiences so that later on we can reach the stars of divine light to be one with God, our Father. We create suffering by defying the universal laws, and we endure it so we can return to harmonious communion with them. Justice is perfect.Nobody weeps unnecessarily. The stone bears the pressure of the tool that polishes it so that it can shine supremely. The beast is led to confinement to be tamed. Humankind suffers and struggles to learn and relearn in order to grow more and more. Earth is not the only theater of life. Did not the Lord himself — whom we aspire to serve — say ‘There are many dwellings in my Father’s house?’ Toil is the ladder of light to other spheres, where we will meet again like birds, which, after losing each other in winter’s gusts, regroup again in the blessed spring sunshine.” [Hail Christ, Xavier, 2012, pp. 47-48]

Even the Druids knew about our struggles to purify ourselves by our passages here on earth. In fact, the pen name of Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail, who wrote The Spirit’s Book, was Allan Kardec, his name from another life as a Druid priest.

In another section of the book, Corvinus tells of the early church’s communication with spirits;

“Heed the Master’s teaching and a new light will shine in your soul. In Lyon, many of our brothers and sisters communicate with the dead, who are simply those living in eternity. They communicate with us and support us every day in our duties… In many instances of martyrdom. I have seen companions who preceded us receiving those who were put to death… Consequently, I know that you and I will continue to be together. The church, for me is nothing but the Spirit of Christ in communion with men and women…” [Hail Christ, Xavier, 2012, p. 63]

The early Christians knew how to communicate with spirits and to gain strength and faith through their discussions with the other side. Spiritism was brought to us, to reinvent the teaching of the church to where it began. To purify its goal to spread the message, that we aren’t here to accumulate wealth or gain power, but to learn from our trials. Trials individually customized for each of us, so we can learn the lessons we have failed to learn in the past. And, that any wrong we commit, we shall pay in this life or the next. There is no easy monetary payment to be made to absolve us of our errors.

 

 

 

 

What is your Opinion? – Analyze the Communication of a High Order Spirit to Nosso Lar

workers-ofpthe-life-eternalIn the book, Workers of the Life Eternal, there is a chapter detailing the events when a guest speaker from a high order world, gave a lecture to spirits in Nosso Lar. Ordinarily, this is not a mystery, the speaker arrives and speaks, but this instance was different. Even for people who believe in Spiritism. I want to layout the occurrence and look for opinions on what did the exchange mean about the differences between the orders of the Spirit world. Read More

Seara Fraterna – Disobsession Medium Meeting – My Observations

I was at a Medium’s meeting at the Seara Fraterna Spiritual Center in Rio de Janeiro, in July 2014.

Disobsession v2It was a meeting to help discarnated spirits. The process is to help spirits living in a state of unbalance. This is not a type of medium meeting where spirits from deceased family members, etc are communicated with to ease the pain of still living family.

Andre Luiz dictated a book on how to conduct disobsession meetings.In the book he explains the exact process, roles, and training required to accomplish this great mission of mercy.

The meetings are all done by volunteers who mostly work during the day and then they meet at night to help our discarnated brothers and sisters, who need assistance to regain their facilities so they are able to get back on the path to improve themselves.

For those of you that have read Andre Luiz’s books, such as The Messengers or Workers of the Life Eternal, what I witnessed at the meeting followed the pattern of disobsession medium meetings in the books quite closely.

The meeting started with one of the persons saying a prayer to start the meeting. Next, the mediums talked about their experiences since the last meeting. After the previous information was digested, one of the mediums read passages from one of the spiritist books. They kept their discussions and readings to a strict timetable.

At the appointed hour, the lights were dimmed and the mediums, heads bowed in silence, awaited the first contact. There were papers and pens ready at the table to receive any written messages. There are two types of mediums at the meeting. A trance medium, is the one the spirit connects with and speaks through their voice.The other type of medium is the counselor medium, who engages in conversation with the spirit.

A male trance medium started talking, all conversations were in Portuguese, in which I am not totally competent, therefore I may misrepresent some situations.

The trance medium started shaking and then he said, “Untie me! Untie me! Why am I restrained?”

A counselor medium came over to sit by the trance medium and put his hand on the trance medium’s arm and said,” Please calm down, calm down, everything will be fine.”

The spirit kept yelling to be free, finally the counselor medium told the spirit to go back to sleep and try to contact the group another day when he was able to communicate.

Another episode was when a women spirit talking through a female trance medium. Immediately she began complaining about her life in general.

“How could someone study, go to school, be educated, and wishing to be a good wife and yet spend a long time locked in her own house by her husband. And if that is not enough, her husband then marked her face with a red-hot iron. He burned all of my face.”

Then she cried and said she was sad. She seemed to believe her face was still disfigured, even thought she has left her physical body.

Next her husband possessed another trance medium and he said, “I feel very terrible I did this, but you know during those times the husband totally owned his wife.”

I immediately thought; this must be a couple from many years ago, when women had no rights.

The counselor medium told him, “I understand your regret.”

The husband responded, “Yes, you are right. All I want is her forgiveness. I am very regretful.”

This is a very tragic situation, the wife lives in constant anger of what was done to her and the husband can not move on due to his realization of his horrible behavior. Her absolute anger is understandable, but it reached a point that her negative thoughts are detrimental to her own health. Who knows how many decades both have been merely existing in this twilight zone. They seemed locked in the lower regions, unable to progress through forgiveness and love.

The last case I will try to summarize is a male spirit who came and told everyone at the meeting how hypocritical and stupid we all are. Then he said, “All of you are fools, you think you are superior to us?”

“No, we don’t think that, we just want to give you help and love”, the counselor medium replied.

“Who are you to give love. Only Jesus reached the high level of love, no one else.”, he said in a loud voice.

“We are here in empathy to learn, how about you?”, said the counselor medium, trying to find the key to start a constructive dialog.

He thought for a while and said, “Do you think we also don’t have empathy. I have love within my group”

“Are you happy with your life?” asked the medium.

“I accept my life the way it is.”, he replied

The counselor medium, sensing he was not open to any type of positive conversation, told him, “OK, so why are you here? If you don’t want to listen, then I will have to ask you to let others come.”

Then he laughed and left.

The meeting was like this for the entire two hours, short dialogs with spirits who required assistance. Some spirits, we were told, would come back many times. All spirits were directed to the meeting by spirits from the higher regions attempting to help those trapped by negative emotions or many other causes. Meetings such as these are just one way lost souls are comforted and guided to get back to the path of improvement.

 

A Succession of Lives III – Amadeu Ferrari

Memoirs of a SuicideIn the book, Memoirs of a Suicide, a group of recovering suicides are being brought forward in the lecture area to travel through their past lives to determine how they arrived at the life where they committed suicide. Each person, one by one, is seated in a contraption at the front of the class. There is a type of screen, but it is more like a hologram, where the memories of the person in the chair become real to the entire audience.

The first person to experience the interrogation is Amadeu Ferrari. He had cancer, and to pay for his treatments he embezzled money from the bank where he worked. His cancer was attacking his tongue and throat.His previous life appeared on the screen;

“Amadeu appeared to us, depicted by his own mind, in the year 1840 as a trafficker of black slaves from Angola to Brazil… He was from Portugal, which explained our affinity for him. By means of a series of voyages, he enriched himself with the abominable trade, not sparing anyslaveship efforts in his vile ambition of returning to Portugal as a millionaire. He inflicted indescribable torment on the wretches as he rounded them up in their free homeland to make slaves of them and handed them over to other ignoble accomplices sharing the same deranged ambitions! In the truculence of inhumane conduct, he excelled in the mistreatment of his captives, ordering them to be flogged for the most insignificant wrong, or even for no wrong at all…. Once, on one of his plantations, he raped a black slave who was little more than a child. Her poor father was an elderly slave sixty-years of age. In a moment of supreme suffering before the body of his child, who had chosen death to hide her shame, he had condemned Amadeu’s vile act, accusing him of his daughter’s suicide. In retaliation, Amadeu ordered cruel farm hands to burn the old slave’s tongue with a red-hot iron until he collapsed in convulsions of agony.” [Yvonne A. Pereira, Memoirs of a Suicide, p. 506].

portugualhouseFast forward, to Portugal, where Amadeu dies a rich man. He finds himself in the jungle surrounded by his old mistreated slaves. He spends years there tormented by all around him. Until one night, the old slave, Felicio, whom he had burned out his tongue, came up to him and said, “Come, master, get up… let’s leave this place.” [p. 509] Felicio had forgiven him and came to free him from those who had not learned how to let go of the desire for revenge.

The instructor explains to the audience, that many of the slaves, came from past lives as oppressor. Felicio, in his capacity working for the Roman Emperor Hadrian, committed many crimes and therefore paid his penance as a slave.

At the end of the interrogation, the instructor revealed a surprise for Amadeu;

“At a signal from Epaminodas (the instructor), a side door had silently opened and Felicio appeared, serene and grave, and walked towards his former master… Now in possession of his entire past, Amadeu looked at him in terror… Slowly and imperceptibly, Felicio transformed himself using the power of his will – which easily changes the configuration of the astral body – and let himself be seen in his role as Romulo Ferrari, Amadeu’s father!” [pp. 512-513]

The  machinations of the Spirit world are a wonder to behold. When you read about the relationships that have been set up in the spirit world for us incarnates, it makes you think, who exactly is my mother and father, brothers and sisters, and other relations. We are all intertwined in the business of forgiveness, learning and salvation, that we should look around and try to determine, who are we having trouble with right now, and what extra effort should I make to be at peace with that person.

Have You Been Told you are Unique? We really are!

telepathyA favorite saying is that “we are all unique”. Sounds like an empty expression that is supposed to make us feel good about ourselves. But according to the Spirit world, we really are unique; we each have a radiation signature that is not the same of anyone else in the universe.

Swedenborg – It’s not the deed, but the thought that caused it

good-deedSo you did a good deed and now you feel good about yourself. Wait a moment and reflect on why did you perform that action? Swedenborg writes;

“If the thought and intent are good, then the deeds and works are good; but if the thought and intent are evil, then the deeds and works are evil, even though they may look-alike in outward form.” [A Swedenborg Sampler, 2011, section 472, p.47]

If we learn anything from Spiritism, it is that all we have, all we really are, is the sum total of our thoughts and memories from the distant past until this moment. We take nothing else with us, because any material object eventually decays and disappears, while our immortal spirit remains.

Still shaking your head? Swedenborg gives some examples;

“Take for example behaving honestly and fairly with an associate. One person can behaveemanuel-Swedenborg honestly and fairly with someone else in order to seem honest and fair for the sake on self and to gain respect; another person can do the same for the sake of worldly profit; a third for reward and credit; a fourth to curry friendship; a fifth out of fear of the law and loss of reputation and office; a sixth to enlist people in his or her cause, even if it is an evil one; a seventh in order to mislead and others for still other reasons.” [A Swedenborg Sampler, 2011, section 472 (2), p.47]

The only basis of thought that should be the cause of behaving honestly and fairly is the love of what is honest and fair.

My favorite example is when a company engages in a “good deed”. I always ask myself, what politician are they currying favor for now, what demographic are they trying to sell? I shouldn’t be so cynical and I should try to be thankful that anything is done to help others. I do realize there are organizations out their who really have an ingrained culture of performing charitable acts, like Doctors without Borders, and others.

Therefore, always try to follow your moral truths, love what is honest and upright, your good deeds will flow naturally like a sweet spring of water in a desert.

 

Three Levels of Life in Every Individual – According to Emanuel Swedenborg

SwedenborgIn Emanuel Swedenborg’s book, Heaven and Hell, at marker 468 [2], he talks about three levels of life, he writes;

“Our rational ability is opened at the first level by means of civic truths, at the second by moral truths, and at the third level by spiritual truths.”

He goes on to say, that knowing the truths is not enough, you must live them. Not only live them, but spiritually love them.

Civic Truths – Love what is fair and equitable.

Moral Truths – Love what is honest and upright.

Spiritual Truths – Love what is good and true in regard to heaven and the church.

Swedenborg extols us to not love them because they make us feel better or superior to our fellowtruth humans, but because of our affection for the truths. Truths that become part of our conscience, embedded in us so we may retain these feelings in subsequent lives and build upon them.
