A member of our Spiritist Facebook group, Spiritism and the Spirit World Around Us, (please join!) pointed us to where there is one of Leon Denis’s books in PDF format.
First a little bit about Leon Denis, straight from Wikipedia:
Léon Denis (January 1, 1846 – March 12, 1927) was a notable spiritist philosopher, and with Gabriel Delanne and Camille Flammarion, one of the principal exponents of spiritism after the death of Allan Kardec. He lectured throughout Europe at international conferences of spiritism and spiritualism, promoting the idea of survival of the soul after death and the implications of this for human relations. He is known as the apostle of French spiritism.
Also, if you read the book, Memoirs of a Suicide, by Yvonne A. Pereira, you will read in the preface that the spirit of Leon Denis assisted her in organizing the book. The book was published in 1955 and Denis died in 1927. Hence, once more proving that if you are a Spiritist, after you die, you are put to work right away!

Spiritism, the Third Revelation, brought to us by The Spirit of Truth, as promised by Jesus in the New Testament, tells us that we are born on earth to live through a series of trials. Trials determined by ourselves, in concert with our spirit mentors, to atone for past wrongs and to remove blemishes from our spirit character on our way to become a pure spirit.
While our attitudes and choices within trials are up to us, as dictated by the promise of free-will for all souls, the formation of the obstacles placed in front of us is for the most part static. In rare instances, the details of trials may be altered, but overall, what was written will occur. Read More.

After you ascend up to one of the celestial cities, like Nosso Lar, it’s not good enough to control what you say, such as refraining from sarcasm or juicy gossip, you have to learn to manage your thoughts. After all, one of the central tenets of Spiritism is you are what you think, actions don’t come from the physical or verbal act, but originate with your mental activity.
Andre Luiz demonstrates this precept in the book, The Messengers, where after he and his colleague Vincent attended a lecture and decided to talk to the other attendees. Vincent told Andre that their instructor considered any enriching conversation to constitute useful work. Andre replied;
Vincent smiled, “It would be your loss. Bear in mind that here words and thoughts become characteristic features of your individuality, and if you engage in degrading conversations and thoughts, our instructors know immediately. Your presence would become unpleasant, and your face would be surrounded by a dark haze.”
This was a startling revelation for me. Here in Nosso Lar, we literally became our thoughts. We cannot deceive those who are more spiritually advanced. [The Messengers, 2006, p. 38]
This is just the first step, for as you ascend higher in the spirit realm, you will be trained to use your mind to create what you have willed. In other words, you shall have the ability to materialize objects out of the ether around you. I explain further in my article, Training of the Will, where you shall discover your ultimate power is beyond almost any fantasy novel you have read.
We travel through multiple lives for a reason, and that is to perfect ourselves in many circumstances and conditions. It’s not enough to be relaxed and in control most of the time, it must be a constant, otherwise we shall not be allowed to manipulate such power. If you wish to learn more about how reincarnation is a process to remove all of our faults, please read my book, The Case for Reincarnation – Your Path to Perfect.
Whoever said Spiritism is easy? Controlling our thoughts is a challenge. It took me many years just to learn to keep my mouth shut! This is why we must focus on learning and helping others, it helps to cut out the background noise of our baser notions.
As we live through challenging trials in life, we often feel abandoned. Life may seem completely hopeless at times. This is how a father with three small children must have felt after his young wife died. Unbeknownst to him, the spirit world knew of his plight. His recently departed wife knew that life without her would be hard. She asked to journey back to the surface of earth to determine how she could assist her beloved mate and children. Read More.
In the books inspired by Andre Luiz and other spirits, all psychographed by Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier there are descriptions of heavenly cities and outposts. In the book, The Lowlands of Heaven, which is one section in a compilation of four books, Life Beyond the Veil, by the Reverend G. Vale Owen. The good reverend communicates with his mother about life in the lower regions of heaven. Here is a different perspective of Heaven. One that reveals more about life in one of the celestial cities.
