Notes on a Mediums Meeting – Rio de Janerio – Feb. 1, 2018

The Mediums Book

I was kindly invited to a mediums meeting in a Spiritist Center in Rio de Janeiro on February 1, 2018. My wife and I try to visit the Spiritist Center each time we travel to Rio. The people there are extremely gracious. The Spiritist Centers is a place to hold meetings – lectures about different aspects of Spiritism, gather food for the needy (which there a many in these bad days for the economy in Brazil), and help discarnate and incarnate spirits.

The meeting we were at, was for discarnates, who had problems and/or were lost in the strange world of the spirits after death.

The mediums started the meeting with a prayer, then read various passages from Spiritist literature, then they turned out the bright lights and left one small blue light on.

They assisted many spirits in the two hours during the meeting, so I will touch upon just a few:


One medium was the channel for a man who had recently died. He was in agony and could feel his body decomposing. The consoling medium (the person who will talk to the spirit via the trance medium’s body), tried to explain that he was dead and now he was in the spirit world. This situation happens quite allot, because so many people do not believe in the after life. As I have written before, our minds affect the environment in the spirit universe. Hence, if a person does not believe in God, they expect nothing after death. Therefore, while their spirit lives on, they are still attached to their old body, which is slowly decaying. Higher spirits try to help these people realize the actual facts of their new environment.


A woman medium was channeling a woman spirit who was in extreme agony. She was crying profusely, so much that I couldn’t understand her Portuguese at all, when she talked. But then another woman medium started to channel, and she said, “Hey, what is this crying all about!”

“I don’t want to hear that. I am here for justice! This man was obsessed with me. He killed my husband, who I loved so he could have me. I want a court to try him!”

The consoling medium tried to tell her to pray to Jesus for resolution and help in this case. She told the poor spirit that one day she would be reborn once again to repair what was done to her. She replied in a startled voice, “You mean I can come back, like a cat! This is like voodoo!”

Here is a woman, locked in the Lower Zone, with little or no knowledge of how the spirit universe she lives in really works. This, once again, illustrates, that when we pass over to the other side, we don’t suddenly become good or knowledgeable. We are who we were.

Next, another medium, a man, started to channel. He said, “I love her! I want to be with her!” Then a different consoling medium, told him to let go of his passion, that his feelings weren’t love. He was hurting the object of his desire. He replied, “But I love her so much, I can’t stop!”

The conversation went back and forth for a while, but eventually he said he would think about it and try to be a better person.

After the last spirit was assisted, the spirit mentor of the Spiritist Center, spoke through a medium, thanking everyone for their presence and help in the nights task. After that, each medium talked about their experiences. There were eight mediums at the table. My wife and I sat against the wall, listening.

Spiritist Centers are dedicated to helping everyone.  The Spiritist mediums at the meeting were helping spirits in the Lower Zone. They gave of their time freely. Each medium in the group had to undergo a year of training before they could sit at the table.

For those who are interested in mediumship, you should read the Book of Mediums by Allan Kardec. Attempting to have conversation with spirits is dangerous without training and precautions. In Spiritist Centers, the mediums meetings is held the same night of the week at the same hour, so the room and be protected by the mentor spirits, to insure only spirits who need assistance and are controlled by higher spirits are allowed to be present.

I hope this illustrates a little what goes on during Spiritist Medium’s meeting and how higher spirits attempt to help everyone in need.

I recommend you learn more about the spirit world and our place in it by reading my set of three books from the Rev. G. Vale Owen.

How Spirits Communicate with Us

mind-reading2On Monday, December 3rd, 1917 at 5:25 p.m. in England, the spirit Kathleen, speaking directly to the mind of a medium said:

“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.”

Spirit Kathleen told this to the Rev G. Vale Owen in the book Life Beyond the Veil, in The Ministry of Heaven section. Read More.

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.

My Visit to a Spiritist Healing Center – Rio Novo – Brazil – August 2014

Rio-Novo-Healing7Like 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.

Communications from the Spirit World – Are They Real?

mind-reading2Throughout 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.

How to Facilitate Your Communication with Spirits


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.

Seara Fraterna – Disobsession Medium Meeting – My Observations

I was at a Medium’s meeting at the Seara Fraterna Spiritual Center in Rio de Janeiro, in July 2014.

Disobsession v2It 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.

Inspiration and Communication from Heaven – How it is Determined and Delivered to Mediums

PSYCHIC-readingsMany mediums have written how they have received communications from the spirit realm. Some say they channeled a certain spirit, others a collection of spirits of various levels. The information they share with us is often interesting and enlightening. But, do you ever wonder how the spirit realm manages the process of sending us new and vital information … revelations that are meant to change our lives? They don’t rely on a single spirit to a medium channel, they organize a group of spirits and insure their collective message reaches the mind of the medium in the correct fashion, character, and style.
