In ancient Greece (469 – 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom. He espoused many of the same beliefs that Jesus would present to the world 400 years later. As Spiritist we need to control our thoughts and not speak ill of others. In fact, we should seek out times to speak well of others. Socrates gives a great lesson on gossip. Read More.

The Rev G. Vale Owen wrote a series of four books in the early 1900’s. Unbeknownst to many at the time, he added to the revelations about Spiritism, which commenced in the 1850’s by Allan Kardec. In the compilation of four books, The Life Beyond the Veil, more of the fantastic world that we shall, as spirits, return to was presented to us. One of the most startling aspects of the book is the role of faith. Not faith as we know it, but faith as a real power, the ability to conjure. Far beyond any of our earthly fantasies. Read More.
Are you experiencing problems with some of your family and have no reason why? You have tried everything and they still just don’t like you? Or worse, are they are nice to you and you can’t help yourself but to reject them? There is a reason, and as part of your trials on earth, you have been reborn with past adversaries, it may have been a rival, a person who assaulted you, or a myriad of reasons for that indistinct feeling of revulsion.
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. If you would like to know more about how the earth will one day become the paradise it should be, read Explore Your Destiny – Since Your Life’s Path is (mostly) Predetermined.
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.
