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.
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.

Nothing is more important in learning to live well than to follow our conscience. Our conscience is one of the gifts we are given that ties us back to our previous lives. At its simplest, our conscience is the set of Divine Laws. Each human and human-like soul on whatever planet in the universe contains this same collection of universal behavior. Read More.
(The Spirit’s Realm Brilliant Method to make us Productive Spirits)
What is the process to turn our raw souls into production spirits? How are we molded, scolded, and cajoled into conformance, while retaining our personal identity? Well, God waits patiently for his natural laws to perform their magic. We are actually strapped in a ride that never stops and provides twists and turns, and enough g-force to transform our spirit into an intelligent and productive member of God’s children. Read more
In the Spirit realm, it is taught to control emotions, for emotions cause actions. When we succumb to anger, the effects are not beneficial to anyone. But there are methods to use your thoughts and mental force to cause actions for the benefit of all. Read More
A high spirit is not only a creature full of immense love and caring, but possess power to create via their will. The ability to craft new solar systems and life. Command to move planets and stars. When Jesus said that faith can move mountains, he was speaking literally. 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.
I read this and was intrigued. If there was anything about us that seemed to be rooted in our dense primitive and often brutish bodies it is sex! Read More.
In the book, Action and Reaction, by Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier, inspired by the spirit Andre Luiz there is a discussion about the power of thought. Andre was at a shelter, built and sponsored by Andre’s celestial city, Nosso Lar. The shelter, “Mansao Paz”, which means Mansion of Peace in English, is in the Lower Zone, so it can be close to the souls who wish to leave and ascend. Read More.
We aren’t just placed on earth in isolation, but to interact with other spirits and incarnates. We have no choice. Even if we lived on a deserted island, there would still be spirits around us, reading our thoughts and supplying us with inspiration. It is meant to be this way; for in this stage of our education we are expected to live amongst the influence of good, bad, and indifferent spirits and other humans. Read More.
