Who is Jesus? That is a question that has been asked for over two thousand years. But, more importantly, the question should be – What is Jesus? For He is a very high spirit, who is not only in charge of our small planet … He was responsible for the formation of our entire solar system. And more. Read More.

The series of three books I have written; analyzing and expanding the communications from various groups of spirits to the Rev. G. Vale Owen, are for the express purpose of explaining the reality – the organization, the process, the environment, the progression of spirits, the work, the daily life – of Heaven and the realms below to provide for those interested an understanding of why we are on earth, in our present physical form, and what is waiting for us when our dense shell is cast off and we return to the real world … the spirit world.
Spirits and the Spirit Universe – Book 2 of Spiritism as Revealed to an Anglican Vicar – Covers communications that pertain to five main themes:
- Spirit Education – Lower levels of heaven
- Spirit Education – Higher levels of heaven

If this sounds like heaven to you, then you are correct – it is heaven.

Dreams can play an important part in our lives. According to Spiritism, when we sleep we are able to roam in our spirit form to talk with other spirits. These can be other incarnates who are also sleeping, or spirits currently free of a physical body.
Often, the spirit world attempts to help us through our trials by taking our spirits while asleep and giving us information and feelings about pertinent episodes in our life.
I was struck by the amount of support the spirit world gave a woman I corresponded with who had experienced the tragic loss of her baby boy. She was very distraught and couldn’t understand why her precious son was taken from her. Read More.
In our culture, our mythology so to speak, when one thinks of the powerful Lords of Hell, a vision of a twisted devil emerges who personifies evil. Eternal evil. According to Spiritism, no spirit ignores the light forever, it may just seem so. Read More.
Camilo Branco was a famous Portuguese author who lived in Portugal in the 19th century, he committed suicide in 1890. Communicating with the medium Yvonne Pereira, Camilo told his story. Part of his narrative is the history of his past lives. Camilo was one of the hecklers as Jesus struggled by, carrying the cross, on the way to be crucified. 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 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]
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.
Start the path to ascension now – read my book How to Live – Inner Peace through Spiritism to determine the changes and new paths you may wish to take to better understand your life and your real future.
It was a touching scene: the daughters around their mother’s bed in the hospital, heavy and somber faces, red and watery eyes. Every person present trying to pick words of encouragement up, but in their heart, all of them experienced a sense of loss already ingrained in their spirits.
We can seriously say that we are not prepared for this moment, fatal and inevitable, which is the time for the return of our loved ones to the spiritual homeland. We are not. This is because even those who have been educated in some religion since childhood have not been taught in this respect. We study almost everything in programs of evangelization – in any denomination – but we do not talk about the “death” phenomenon. However “death” is life! And we have quoted this elsewhere.
Notice that we are prepared – always! – for various occasions: birthdays, holidays, weddings, holidays, Christmas, New Year, New Year’s Eve, Carnival …, and whatever else it may appear. But not only are we not prepared for a funeral ceremony, as we also do not know to say anything other than the well-known phrases as: “my condolences“, “my feelings“, “rest in peace“, “I am so sorry“. Fallacies!
Even worse when people of a strong and passionate temperament arise who do not accept what has happened – the separation -, and they begin to shout improprieties against the Godhead like: “- Why did God do this to me?“.
They do not understand – would it be possible try to make them understand? – that, in addition to suffering the loss, are also interfering, very often, in releasing of the creature that no longer animates its physical body, but that also cannot move itself away to another dimension due to the desperate calls they make to him at that moment.
It is well known that life on Earth is momentary. No matter how many years you will live, it will always be a great time spent here. Here we come, the spirits in need of learning, to pave the evolutionary journey alternating between Love and Pain to become better. This is fate. It is not by chance that Kardec’s grave, the tireless codifier of the Spiritist Doctrine, we read: “To be born, to grow, to die, to be reborn still and to progress always, such is the law.”
In some cases of illness, there are occurrences where there is the sudden improvement of the patient for the specific purpose of preparing the afflicted hearts of the relatives for the fatal outcome. This is when what is commonly called “the visit of health” occurs. Note also that in various distressful situations, the expected does not always occur.
Cases in which family and friends wait for the final moment, contrary to all expectations, it does not come. The patient recovers and life goes on. And there are situations where friends and family themselves pray for the outcome, believing that the sick person is already suffering too much and it is better that they “rest” by the way of death. Which is an illusion.
In the vast Spiritist literature, there are reports where the reader can verify the way of acting of Providence. Here a patient recovers and receives an additional time for family members to calm down, thereby avoiding the enormous burden of suffering that would be undue to the feelings of that group. There occurs the postponement because some objectives are yet to be achieved in that family collectivity. Not knowing the day and the hour when the thief will come, no one can say when it will be the final hour of whoever it is.
For a better understanding and absorption of knowledge on the subject, we suggest reading the books “The Book of Spirits” and “Heaven and the Hell” both by Allan Kardec and read the series of Andre Luiz books by Francisco C. Xavier, beginning with Nosso Lar.
Get them and good reading!

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.
The Earth will not always be your home. You have lived on other planets before and shall do so in the future. This is not an astounding fact. It is normal – it is the same as attending a school for a few years, then moving on to the next level. After all, the purpose of living multiple lives is to continuously improve ourselves, and each school will change us for the better in a particular manner. Click here to watch my YouTube video.
