A five-year-old child drifted off in a coma and journeyed to the spirit world. Years later the little girl grew up and wrote about her episode. What she brought back with her changed her and her family. Read More.
“In the frontal lobes, Andre, the physical exteriorization of important perispiritual centers, there are millions of cells waiting for human effort in the area of spiritualization in order to become operative. Not one of the most daring thinkers of humankind from ancient times up till now has ever managed to use a tenth of them. They are energies of a virgin field, which the soul will gain not only through evolutionary continuity but also through self-education, moral improvement and sublime elevation. My friend, only a living and revealing faith can initiate such an endeavor as an indispensable trailblazing light for individual progress.” [In the Greater World, 2009, p. 140]
The spirit world doesn’t equip us with facilities without a purpose. My guess is that at some future state of our planet, when we become a regenerative or happy world the power of our minds will be unlocked.
Learn more secrets that have been revealed to us in my book, 51 Disclosures from Spiritism – The 3rd Revelation. Understand what you have been through and see what is in store for you by exploring the spirit realm.
Who are we, what do we feel when we just pass over from the physical to the spiritual realm? The transition is difficult for many. We are told about the complexities of adjusting by the Reverend Owen’s mother, who communicated to him in his book, which is a collection of four of his books, Life Beyond the Veil, in The Lowlands of Heaven section. She tells us about one person who is experiencing the learning curve: Read More.
I found this marvelous book, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna & Lao Tzu, by Richard Hooper. In it he compares similar passages in different combinations of four religious prophets. He, and others before him, analyze who was first to create the tenets and who stole what idea from whom. Whereas, Spiritist realize there are many similarities because they were sent to earth to preach the same doctrine. Each slightly affected by different cultures and times.
I found on pages 138 to 139 sayings about reincarnation;
Jesus: Be merciful that you may obtain mercy. Forgive, so that you may be forgiven. As you judge, so you will be judged. As you serve, so will service be done to you. And whatever you measure out, that is what will be returned to you. [The Gospel According to Matthew]
Krishna: Everyone creates their own fate. Even life in the womb is affected by the karma from a previous life. [The Garuda Purana]
Buddha: From a sound, an echo returns. A body creates a shadow. So, too, will misery come to him who does evil works. [Three Sermons]
All three could have been lifted from the Doctrine of Spiritism. Our actions in one life shall affect our next life. How much plainer could all three be?
Why then do people still insist on committing the wrong deeds? Because, many do not believe that we truly are spirit beings who come to earth to learn and pay our debts. I can certainly understand that. I was in that category for many years. But once you internalize the enormity of reincarnation, your entire outlook alters and sacrificing the progress of your soul for momentary material gain becomes out of the question.
If you would like to explore more about reincarnation and why we must go through multiple trials to become a pure spirit, please read my book, The Case for Reincarnation – Your Path to Perfection.
I was reading Saint Augustine’s book, City of God, he wrote the book after the Visigoths, under King Alaric, sacked Rome in the year 410. In many of the chapters he wrote about the complaints of the pagans against the Christians. A sense of the decline of the Roman Empire permeated the book. One chapter stood out, it described what St. Augustine felt the Roman citizens of the day really wanted. The type of culture and society, the leading Romans of the day desired to live in and wished to remain free to continue until their dying days. Read More.
“When we come to earth, friend, we say one to another by the way that we are going into the land of mist and twilight, that we may, in the interior world which we find there, shed abroad somewhat of our light and warmth, For, indeed, that these be much needed we are able to sense, even in those far spheres from which we come. You may wonder by what process of chemistry or dynamics this is made possible to us; and, in detail. But we are able to give you a somewhat epitomized account of this affair, and so we will, if it would be of interest to you, and those who shall come to read what we give you.”
Now that you understand what reincarnation is for (your path to perfection), the question is how do you succeed? What should be the governing philosophy of your life that will not only allow you to survive your trials but emerge victorious? Read More.
In the book, The Messengers, psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier, and inspired by the Spirit Andre Luiz, there is a passage where Andre enters a building and spots a large canvas which depicts the martyrdom of Saint Denis. Saint Denis was an apostle to the Franc world (modern-day area of France), who had been sacrificed during the early years of Christianity.(The Messengers, 2005, p. 77).
Andre Luiz was astounded, he had seen a painting that looked exactly like the one in the building, back on earth. It was created by the famous French painter Leon Bonnat. Andre is told this is a reproduction, then he replies, “As I understand, the original is on display at the Pantheon in Paris.” (The Messengers, 2005, p. 77).
“No, my friend. You’re mistaken. Not all the wonderful expressions of art are original creations of incarnate artists. It’s true there are marvelous works of art originated by incarnate humans; however, in the case of this painting, the story is quite different. The painting was idealized and
created by a Christian artist in a spiritual community closely connected with France. At the end of the last century, the talented painter of Bayonne, Leon Bonnat visited that spiritual community in the spirit realm during his sleep, on a night when he was particularly inspired. He had what any incarnate individual would call a wonderful dream. From the first moment he saw the painting in his dream visit, he was determined to reproduce it. He then produced a copy, which, although it pales when compared to the original, became famous all over the world.”(The Messengers, 2005, p. 77).
Andre’s friend explains to him that creative geniuses on earth are inspired by the Spirit realm. He tells Andre, “Nobody creates without seeing, hearing, fully sensing. The artists of superior mentality do see, hear and sense the high expressions which reflect the path which leads to God.”(The Messengers, 2005, p. 78).
We are communicated to by spirits. They are many times the inspirations that drive us to achieve our lofty goals.

You will find out that we have, with the help of our spiritual superiors, actually create the outline of our life and that we succeed or not depending on the choices we make and the attitudes we demonstrate as we encounter one obstacle after another in the course of our life.
The Arc of Evolution – All Things Progress – When we were young, we thought of the animals and the entire world as static. While we knew we would grew older, we thought everything else stayed the same. Mountains didn’t move, oceans didn’t recede, and humans would always be human. Read More.
All of us have felt ready to give up the battle. In the book, Spiritual Wisdom: Missives of Hope, Chico Xavier writes of a young man who told others in the mediums meeting that he felt overwhelmed. His trials were too difficult, he could not find the inner strength to continue. He believed that he had signed up for an impossible task and could not decipher how he could surmount his problems.
