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.
“When we come to earth, friend, we say one to another by the way that we are going into the land of mist and twilight, that we may, in the interior world which we find there, shed abroad somewhat of our light and warmth, For, indeed, that these be much needed we are able to sense, even in those far spheres from which we come. You may wonder by what process of chemistry or dynamics this is made possible to us; and, in detail. But we are able to give you a somewhat epitomized account of this affair, and so we will, if it would be of interest to you, and those who shall come to read what we give you.”
How does psychometry work? How can a person infer past owners, scenes, dramatic episodes from an inanimate object? Psychometry is real and it is explained by Spiritism. Read More.
Like many others, I am extremely suspicious when I hear of religious healing. I think of naive people receiving faith healing with tragic consequences if they stop taking their medicine, or even worse, never see a doctor. Therefore, I wanted to visit a Spiritist healing center to determine their process and what they actually provide. Read More.

We are experiencing a moment when we should deconstruct the walls of ignorance that imprison us in our evolutionary march, time to disarm the evil feelings that propel us to the obstacle of conquering a land of peace and harmony. It is essential in these hours of uncertainty to closely agree on the noble values found in the moral maxims of Christ, in order to overcome the dungeons of our doubts and insecurities. There is no conquest without effort, nor the pleasure of victory without redemptive work.
Humanity is awakening from a catalytic sleep that has subordinated it to the imperatives of the powerful and inconsequential children of selfishness and pride, nevertheless the light of truth is on, signaling the direction to be taken. Awakening is an unequivocal choice of everyone who wants to walk in a better world, based on the construction of internal ideals within themselves. We are worlds in formation, in divine vibration, constellations of knowledge and feelings that are updated as time runs fast towards the infinite, nothing remains static, everything changes, everything passes.
The investment that is being asked of the children of the new age is not a novelty of this century, the investment that the messengers of God have been bringing as a proposal for renewal is a universal manifesto, which is permeated everywhere the will of God is blowing. This investment translates the language of love that happens to be yeast, the active chisel of human deformities. Love has never been more evident, so sought after and recommended as it is today. The divine being by nature is immersed in this love, like the fetus in the amniotic fluid, in the planning of a new being.
Our struggle today is with disbelief, the abandonment of rational thought and emotional insecurity, which unbalances and deconstructs the most intimate foundational values. The world is devoid of dignifying purposes, a large portion suffers from the worst crisis of anguish that can be known in the trajectory of the Earth, the lack of God in their hearts, the inconsequential inversion of values that has precipitated the creatures to the most unfortunate folly that you can see.
Finally, life awaits decisions from all of us relevant to the calls of Christ Jesus: “To love one another”; it is time to recommend lucidity and discernment to ourselves in our choices, to work hard for an education of feelings and to leverage the implantation of the good news of the beloved master. The beginning of a new era commences with the end of another, and every change shakes the foundation of what is out of harmony with the perfection that God expects of everyone. Let us therefore build the noble values that grant us the ticket to remain in this world, still of trials and atonements, but in progress towards a better world, where good will prevail.
Psychographed message on May 16, 2020 / Parnaíba-Piauí
By the spirit: Miguel
Medium: Mario Lúcio Marinho
Throughout the ages people have reported messages from the spirit world, the “other side”, as the Druids called it. Are all of these communications just a manifestation of our collective imagination or is there something really out there? I believe there is and there is a growing mound of research that points in that direction. Read More.
I have noticed that whenever I saw pictures of Chico Xavier psychographing I saw him with his hand against his head. I thought that may have just been how he felt best when he communicated with spirits.
I read a passage in the book, Life Beyond the Veil, in The Lowlands of Heaven section. It was a communication to the Rev G. Vale Owen from his mother in the spirit world. His mother tells him the best method to hear her clearly in his mind. The bold words from G. Vale Owen: Read More.
On our Facebook group, Spiritism and the Spirit World Around Us (please join – by the way), a person posted a list of questions regarding mediumship. I thought the questions were great. They demonstrated a deep knowledge of the problems and concerns of starting out on the road to being a medium.
Here are the questions:
How does a contact between a medium and a spirit-being come about?
How do you prepare a mediumistic session?
How do you prepare the location of the mediumistic session?
What are the means you work with?
What are the possibilities you employ to reduce radio and TV frequencies?
How do you educate and instruct the medium?
What are the preparations the medium undergoes?
In what way do you help the medium with the preparations?
How do the participants of the session help the medium?
How does the person in charge of the session prepare himself/herself?
Does the person in charge help the medium with the preparations, and if so, in what way?
Does the medium consciously feel and experience his or her own energies?
Does the person in charge feel and experience his other own energies?
Is the same person in charge a medium?
What is the spiritist-scientific approach to self-knowledge in order to prepare a medium?
How does a medium get rid of the energies to which he or she is exposed on a daily basis?
How does a medium discharge his or her own energies, accumulated through behavior and, which hinder the mediumistic work?
How does a medium energetically prepare for the mediumistic session?
How does the person in charge energetically prepare for the mediumistic session?
How do the other participants prepare?
What is the difference between a mediumistic and a spiritist session?
What indications have your Spirit Guides given you in respect of these questions?
In the true spirit of Spiritism, instead of answering each one, and probably getting the answer incorrect, I will point out the various resources in which these questions (and more) are fully discussed and answered.
Plus, I would like to point out that in many of the Andre Luiz series of books, these types of inquires are touched upon.
The list of books one should read to explore the world of mediumship and to understand the spirit world on the other side of the line are:
1. The Book on Mediums – by Allan Kardec, available on Amazon and on PDF.
2. In the Domains of Mediumship – by Francisco C. Xavier, available on Amazon.
3. Disobession – by Francisco C. Xavier and Waldo Viera, available on Amazon and on PDF.
4. We are all Mediums – by Odilon Fernandes and Carlos Baccelli, available on Amazon and on PDF.
I was at a Medium’s meeting at the Seara Fraterna Spiritual Center in Rio de Janeiro, in July 2014.
It was a meeting to help discarnated spirits. The process is to help spirits living in a state of unbalance. This is not a type of medium meeting where spirits from deceased family members, etc are communicated with to ease the pain of still living family.
Andre Luiz dictated a book on how to conduct disobsession meetings.In the book he explains the exact process, roles, and training required to accomplish this great mission of mercy.
The meetings are all done by volunteers who mostly work during the day and then they meet at night to help our discarnated brothers and sisters, who need assistance to regain their facilities so they are able to get back on the path to improve themselves.
For those of you that have read Andre Luiz’s books, such as The Messengers or Workers of the Life Eternal, what I witnessed at the meeting followed the pattern of disobsession medium meetings in the books quite closely.
The meeting started with one of the persons saying a prayer to start the meeting. Next, the mediums talked about their experiences since the last meeting. After the previous information was digested, one of the mediums read passages from one of the Spiritist books. They kept their discussions and readings to a strict timetable.
At the appointed hour, the lights were dimmed and the mediums, heads bowed in silence, awaited the first contact. There were papers and pens ready at the table to receive any written messages. There are two types of mediums at the meeting. A trance medium, is the one the spirit connects with and speaks through their voice.The other type of medium is the counselor medium, who engages in conversation with the spirit.
A male trance medium started talking, all conversations were in Portuguese, in which I am not totally competent, therefore I may misrepresent some situations.
The trance medium started shaking and then he said, “Untie me! Untie me! Why am I restrained?”
A counselor medium came over to sit by the trance medium and put his hand on the trance medium’s arm and said,” Please calm down, calm down, everything will be fine.”
The spirit kept yelling to be free, finally the counselor medium told the spirit to go back to sleep and try to contact the group another day when he was able to communicate.
Another episode was when a women spirit talking through a female trance medium. Immediately she began complaining about her life in general.
“How could someone study, go to school, be educated, and wishing to be a good wife and yet spend a long time locked in her own house by her husband. And if that is not enough, her husband then marked her face with a red-hot iron. He burned all of my face.”
Then she cried and said she was sad. She seemed to believe her face was still disfigured, even thought she has left her physical body.
Next her husband possessed another trance medium and he said, “I feel very terrible I did this, but you know during those times the husband totally owned his wife.”
I immediately thought; this must be a couple from many years ago, when women had no rights.
The counselor medium told him, “I understand your regret.”
The husband responded, “Yes, you are right. All I want is her forgiveness. I am very regretful.”
This is a very tragic situation, the wife lives in constant anger of what was done to her and the husband can not move on due to his realization of his horrible behavior. Her absolute anger is understandable, but it reached a point that her negative thoughts are detrimental to her own health. Who knows how many decades both have been merely existing in this twilight zone. They seemed locked in the lower regions, unable to progress through forgiveness and love.
The last case I will try to summarize is a male spirit who came and told everyone at the meeting how hypocritical and stupid we all are. Then he said, “All of you are fools, you think you are superior to us?”
“No, we don’t think that, we just want to give you help and love”, the counselor medium replied.
“Who are you to give love. Only Jesus reached the high level of love, no one else.”, he said in a loud voice.
“We are here in empathy to learn, how about you?”, said the counselor medium, trying to find the key to start a constructive dialog.
He thought for a while and said, “Do you think we also don’t have empathy. I have love within my group”
“Are you happy with your life?” asked the medium.
“I accept my life the way it is.”, he replied
The counselor medium, sensing he was not open to any type of positive conversation, told him, “OK, so why are you here? If you don’t want to listen, then I will have to ask you to let others come.”
Then he laughed and left.
The meeting was like this for the entire two hours, short dialogs with spirits who required assistance. Some spirits, we were told, would come back many times. All spirits were directed to the meeting by spirits from the higher regions attempting to help those trapped by negative emotions or many other causes. Meetings such as these are just one way lost souls are comforted and guided to get back to the path of improvement.
If you would like to learn more about Spiritism and what is reveals about the spirit world, read my book 51 Disclosures from Spiritism – The 3rd Revelation. You will discover the answers to many of your questions about the afterlife and why we are here on earth.

Message received during the meeting of disobsession, held on January 9, 2020, at the Semente Cristã Spiritist Center, through the medium Mario Lúcio de Sá Marinho.
* * *
May Jesus be with everyone, thank God!
May we, united in a single commitment in the task of good, exercise the work of Christ with love and joy in the implantation of good on this Planet. Every time we expand our knowledge, because the non-transferable power of beneficial and grandiose attunement is within us, we fluidly establish the resources that mediumship with love can provide to work.
The spiritist group that cultivates values of knowledge in systematic study and careful observation of the Good News of Christ Jesus, is seeking to obtain greater spirituality and more effective and gradual accompaniment, extending the possibilities of exercising a task of helping the challenges of the spirit, to obtaining more and more divine resources to take advantage of the mediumistic work of exchange, of preciousness, within what Christ teaches us of love for our neighbor as ourselves.
The interest, the condition of persevering pursuit and specializing each day through study in the search for knowledge and responsible experimentation in mediumistic practice is in the hands of each of you so that the team can sustain itself and can progressively conquer and raise each more in obtaining the blessings of God, in favor of the success of doing good through sanctifying mediumship. The favor that each one makes available through the love that is given to the relief service, returns in an invisible but effective and constructive way in the life of those who are understanding themselves as able to serve Jesus in the construction of a balanced Planet, where well-being it will configure the reincarnation process of the future so that the creatures are fraternal and loving.
Rest assured, brothers, that we are interested in you and, more and more when we observe that the light of the desire to understand and know spiritual processes grows. The magnitude of the work of mediumship with Christ is a scientific-philosophical study because mediumship, it is proficient, it needs to be proven and approved through individual dedication and collective dedication, where it manifests itself in the Spiritist House that oozes light and the desire to serve.
God is with everyone, of so many pains and sufferings, but full of hope, where faith is light, bringing us the certainty that with the struggle, perseverance with the application of the Law of love, we will come out victorious before the shadows, that still persist, but are absent as the light intensifies.
Let us stay with the certainty of the friendly presence of the spiritual brothers that each one is to lovingly welcome, opening the mental field so that they can process the sublime message of light and understanding of spiritual knowledge. Everyone has the power, the strength of the transformation that needs to be done. Let us trust, apply the resources already learned and march forward because the light of good is overflowing the atmosphere of the shadows, which still remains on the threshold.
A lot of peace! God with everyone! Jesus in our hearts, as servants of the world that we still are. Much peace my children! May the work be in balance and harmony. Thank God!
