There must be many ways for a person to be obsessed, in the book, Action and Reaction, by Francisco C. Xavier, dictated by the spirit Andre Luiz, there is an example of one method used to cause an innocent person to become obsessed. Read More.
Envy, which has it roots in selfishness, whereby a person has something your desire and you wish to have it for yourself is a character trait that we are on earth to learn to remove. Only when there are more souls on earth who live by the Golden Rule, who don’t fall to the baser emotions of hate, envy and revenge will the earth commence its great climb from a planet of atonement to a planet of regeneration.
Envy has been with us since humans gathered in tribes. A story from the times of Athens, after the Greeks defeated the Persians at the battle of Marathon illustrates the harm that envy can bring. One of the generals who led the Athenians to victory was called Aristides the Just.
In Athens, a person could be banished if six thousand citizens voted to remove him from the city. Aristides’ main opponent, Themistocles arranged to have a vote to banish Aristides. Aristides, who had always acted nobly and fair to all, walk amongst the crowd. A farmer stopped him, without knowing who he was. The farmer didn’t know how to read or write so he asked Aristides to write his vote down for him.
“What name shall I write?” questioned Aristides.
“Oh, put down ‘Aristides,'” answered the farmer.
“Why do you want him sent away? Has he ever done you any harm?” asked Aristides.
“No,” said the farmer, “but I’m tired of hearing him called the just.”
Without saying another word, Aristides calmly wrote his own name on the shell. When the votes were counted, they found six thousand votes against him: so Aristides the Just was forced to leave his native city and go away into exile.
Nothing has changed in the 2,500 years since the time of Ancient Greece, people are still moved by politicians by motives of greed and envy, instead of what is just and good.

Spiritual Advancements – Large steps may be easier than small. You think and prepare carefully when you determine to downsize, to cast off material obsessions and concentrate on spiritually educating yourself. On the other hand, the small details, the old habits can be more difficult to change. This is because the ingrained habits are part of your personality from your present and past lives – it takes more effort and repetition to remove them. Don’t be discouraged, it just takes time.

I am going to turn your world upside down. There have been countless books and articles written on how to solve your problems. Most of them detail expedient methods to rid yourself of the worries that concern you or how to box up your anxieties and quickly move on.
Positive thinking is a big factor too. Always a good idea, but moving forward and not analyzing the cause may lead to a lesson not learned.
At the end, most of the programs center on to how to get back on your feet and make more money than you have ever dreamed of.
This book is different. Not that the others are bad or useless. Just that this book is different. It rests on an altered premise; life is a planned series of trials.
Trials or more precisely deliberate classes to teach you exactly what you need to learn. All set up beforehand by the Supreme Intelligence.
Contrary to what most of us have been taught, we aren’t here to merely be born into a random family, survive childhood, escape our teenage years without major injury and then it’s off to the world to be successful. We are on earth, just as we were in previous lives to modify ourselves. We are tasked to completely internalize the need to be a better, kinder, charitable and honest soul.
To achieve this worthy goal takes more than one, two, three, or a dozen lives. It is a long process and each successive life brings its own types of schooling. The worst parts of your life are where you absorb the most difficult lessons. It is these times, to take stock of who we are and what we are being guided to learn.
Shrugging off a trial you have escaped unhurt and not being cognizant of the consequences of your behavior, in this life or in the past, that caused a challenging time constitutes a failure. This lack of self-awareness is a bomb that lies dormant and will explode later in your present or next life.
I am not telling you to enjoy bad times. I am pleading with your to look at them like running a marathon or an Ironman triathlon. Where the pain can be excruciating, the competition tough, and the bruises are evident on your body. But, at the end you feel that you made it, you lived up to your expectations and you learned about the extent that you can push yourself.
The Spirituality has set our predestined lives to achieve exactly that. Before you were born, you signed up for the race and now, whether you like it or not, you have to complete it.
You are not allowed exit or take shortcuts. You don’t even want to know the penalties for departing early. So it’s time to get serious and throw our heart into the race. Be victorious and claim the prize that the spirit world says is a hundredfold more than any pain you experienced.
In this book your will learn to analyze why are you experiencing, or have been through, the following types of events:
1. Financial problems
2. Failed relationship(s) / marriage(s)
3. Family problems
4. Illnesses – physical and mental
5. Career setbacks
And in doing so, you shall be able to make the first step in analyzing what you should have learned and how it will make you a better person. You are a spirit who will eventually return to the real world, the spirit world, ready to climb up the ladder to become a pure spirit.
According to Spiritism, thought has power, it has consequences. How is this possible? In the book, In the Domain of Mediumship (Life in the Spirit World), inspired by Andre Luiz, psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier, there are some explanations.
Revenge is not Needed nor Warranted – Karma will take care of all Transgressions. A desire for revenge against someone who wronged you is natural – given our primitive background. Whereas is was useful when living in a primitive society, it is no longer of use. We (all humans on earth) are being transitioned to a higher sphere. A level where we should cast off our primitive emotions and recognize that when people do wrong it is out of ignorance and that someday they too will become a perfect spirit. Therefore, plotting playback only serves to hold you back and does nothing for the other person – for they will certainly learn what they need and that will be done via Karma.
The transfer of energy from one being to another is the essence of a pass, as it is known in Spiritism. Passes revitalize our Vital Fluids so we may be stronger to face our daily trials. For if we don’t place ourselves in a balanced state, we have less control over our emotions and our body is less able to heal itself. Read More.
Sara A is an interesting case. She hit her head, after overdosing on different types of medications and woke up a changed woman. She remembered, via lucid dreams what she experienced while she was unconscious, but she didn’t have the usual all in NDE white light type of experience. Read More.
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.
