Keeping the Same Gender Over Multiple Lives

In The Spirits Book, we are told that spirit can be reincarnated as either sex. But we aren’t told if spirits alternate or stay the same sex in life after life.  In the books by Francisco C. Xavier, we learned that families tend to reincarnate and spirits of one sex tend to remain in that gender.

Higher spirits, lose their gender, for after countless years of lives and experiences they have balanced the characteristics of both sexes.

Hence, it appears that changing gender is a slow evolving process for many spirits. But, in the book Action and Reaction, one of the Andre Luiz series of books, psychographed by Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier, we learn of other reasons why spirits are sent back to earth in a different gender than the one they had last time.

Silas, who is Andre’s mentor talks about the alteration of gender for a spirit from one life to another:

“Considering that, in essence, sex is the sum of the passive and positive qualities of the person’s mental field, it is natural for the predominantly female spirit to linger for centuriesAdam-Eve on the evolutionary pathway as woman; likewise, the predominately male spirit will tarry for a long time in the experiences of man. However, on many occasions, when the man tyrannizes the woman, denying her rights and committing abuses in the name of his supposed superiority, he distorts himself to the point that, unconscious and imbalanced, he is led by the agents of the Divine Law to a pain-filled reincarnation in a woman’s body so that, in extreme inner discomfort, he may learn to venerate woman as his sister and companion, daughter and mother before God. The same applies to the offensive woman, who, after dragging the man into lust and criminality, creates for herself a terrible mental alienation that she takes with her after the grave, thereby requiring internment in man’s body so that, in the webs of her unhappy emotions, she may construct within her the respect she owes to man before the Lord.” [Action and Reaction, 2010, p. 205]

To discover what Spiritism have revealed to us about the entire process of reincarnation and the effect of our past life on the life we are living now, read my book, The Case for Reincarnation – Your Path to Perfection.


I would also like to say that I think changing gender for some spirits is not necessarily a matter of righting a wrong done in a past life, but also merely of obtaining a balance. I do agree that spirits lose their gender as they move higher, but I think this happens because they attain a balance of both masculine and feminine energies. If a spirit comes back quite often in male form and leads many lives as a man, in order to attain that balance of energies they must at some point live a life as a female to balance out their strong masculine energies with feminine ones. This is where a lot of homosexuality and transgenderism comes in I think. I personally feel that I have lived several lives as a man, and as a young child I thought quite repeatedly that I ought to have been a boy. Being a girl was a very foreign concept to me. I am not transgender, however I am homosexual. My fiancee is one that I also feel I have spent many lives with. While I don’t doubt that as a form of karmic balancing a spirit who as a man vilified or committed harms against women, may be reincarnated as a woman to make recompense and experience the alternate perspective they dismissed so easily before…and vice versa…I think that there comes a time in the progression of every spirit where they must experience both masculine and feminine forms in order to attain that perfect balance and blend of both amazing energies, and to realize that true and unconditional love comes not as a matter of gender or physical biology but should in fact extend beyond such things.

Just my thoughts on it.


    I agree that a certain mix of experiences for each gender is required in order to ascend. How else, as you say in your comment, can we possess the range of experiences required of a high spirit
