The Old Testament references a Silver Cord – the connection between the Spirit and the Body, via the Perispirit. People who have had NDEs (near death experiences) have commented on seeing a silver cord which is attached from their soul to their body. Spiritism tells us this is real and is the conduit between our spirit and our physical body. Click here to watch my YouTube video.

Why Should We Study Spiritism. Love is certainly the start, but we need to do more, we need to study. Study to understand the spirit world and the environment we are presently in, to fully comprehend the processes whereby we may prepare ourselves to part with our physical body and become a spirit. A person, who still retains the memories and personality associated with our old body, yet will now enter a realm and fantastic possibilities. And the sooner we come face to face with that fact, the sooner we can start readying ourselves for the big transition. Click here to watch my YouTube video.
Zabdiel starts out his communication with the Rev. G Vale Owen, on November 19, 1913, talking about how people from all around the world will come to know Jesus Christ. Whereas they may not know him as to his “Natural Divinity” , which I take to mean his composition and power as a spiritual entity, but will come to him because of His acts of kindness and love while in human form on earth.
Hence, it is through love that we must take the first step toward knowing Jesus and what he taught, for without the foundation of the feeling of love, nothing else can be built upon it. Zabdiel explains:
“Foremost they must love. That is the first commandment of all, and the greatest. And hard have men found it to keep. They all agree that to love one another is good; and when they come to translate the sentiment into action, how sadly do they fail. And yet, without love no thing in the universe would stand, but fall into decay and dissolution. It is the love of God which energizes through all that is; and we can see that love, if we look for it, everywhere. The best way to understand many things is to contrast them with their opposites. The opposite of love is dissolution; because that comes from refraining from the exertion to love. Hatred is also of the opposite, and yet not the essence of it; because hatred of one person is often a mistaken method of expressing love to another.”
Dissolution or apathy is a major problem in our world today. People have a hard time feeling. We are buffeted with shocking or pornographic images on a constant basis, we lose the ability to muster the energy to love. Hence, some take to drugs or alcohol to supply the stimulate to begin to feel, others become fanatical about a cause and lose all reason and empathy for different points of view.
Hatred is the welling-up of a primitive emotion. It is unfocused mental energy which leads to the radiation of confusion and bad feelings to all around the person dwelling on hate. There is power in hate, but it is destructive and causes more problems than it one supposes it solves.
Zabdiel also tells us that hatred also affects doctrines. Where if one becomes a member of one organization, such as a religion or a gang, then you must hate all other rivals. He, quite rightly, warns us that constant hate makes it more difficult to love, to love anything else, when hate consumes all.
Lastly, Zabdiel notifies us that we must start with love, for without love we are unable to climb the ladder to perfection:
“This is one of those things which make it difficult in this life of the spheres. For not until a man has learned to love all without hating any is he able to progress in this land where love means light, and those who do not love move in dim places where they lose their way, and often become so dull in mind and heart that their perception of the truth is a vague as that of outward things.”
Your capacity to love greatly determines where you shall go after physical death. Zabdiel doesn’t desire any spirit to have to live in the Lower Zones or the Abyss. In these undesirable places the common denominator is the absence of love for others.
The Spirituality loves us all and has illuminated a path for us to climb toward goodness. It’s not a steep path, but it is also not the easiest. It simply takes effort to rid ourselves of our primitive urges and to open our hearts to love and kindness. To wait one moment before letting emotions run over us and consider the feelings and what they went through of the other person.
The first place is to learn what the basic tenets of Spiritism are and how your life is planned so you can improve. You can begin by reading The Spirits Book, by Allan Kardec, or you can read my book, based upon how Spiritism has affected my life, 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life.

“Light and darkness are states of the spirit, as you know. When those dwelling in the darkness cry for light, that means that they are become out of touch with their environment. So we send them what help is needed; and that is usually direction by which they find their way – not into regions of light, where they would be in torture, and utterly blinded, but – into a region less dark, and tinctured by just so much of light as they may bear until they outgrow that state and cry in their longing for more.”
Zabdiel, a spirit who lives on the tenth level of heaven, reveals how souls are assisted to slowly rise out of the depths of purgatory (called the abyss in Spiritist literature) in Book Two of the book The Life Beyond the Veil called The Highlands of Heaven. He tells the Rev. G. Vale Owen how spirits rise toward the light.
According to Spiritism, spirits who are in the abyss are there because they have not learned how to let the love of God permeate their beings. They still harbor materialistic bonds to earth and allow the baser emotions of envy, hate, and thirst for revenge rule over them.
When physical death occurs, a soul travels to the region where there are others similar to him or her. Hence, when a mean-spirited person lives amongst like-minded caustic people, the experience gets old fast. It is the Spirituality’s method to let us know if we really enjoy living with people just the same as us. All, at one time or another, discover there is a better way. They begin to understand the need to allow love to enter, and as they change their attitude they also transform their composition.
As spirits rise from the lower levels to each successive stage in heaven, they become lighter, less dense, and brighter. A spirit glows from the reflected love they have absorbed. Zabdiel explains the process of moving from a lower region to a higher sphere:
“When a spirit leaves a dark region for one less dark he experiences an immediate sense of relief and comfort by comparison with his former state. For now his environment is on harmony with his own inner state of development. But as he continues to develop in aspiration after good, he gradually becomes out of harmony with his surroundings, and then, in ratio to his progress, so his discomfort increases until it becomes not less than agony. Then in his helplessness, and approaching near to despair, have come to that pass when his own endeavors can go no further, he cries for help to those who are able to give it in God’s Name, and they enable him one stage onward nearer to the region where dimness, rather than darkness, reigns. And so he at last comes to the place where light is seen to be light; and his onward way is henceforth not through pain and anguish, but from joy to greater joy, and hence to glory and glory greater still.”
Zabdiel explained the process, but he also desires for us to understand that life with others who are also dark and cruel is not meant as a punishment, but as an object lesson. A direct method to allow the soul in question to form her or his own opinion as to the correct course of action. Zabdiel tells us more:
“But do not mistake my words of their meaning. This is no vengeance of an angry God, my ward and friend. God is our Father, and He is Love. All this sorrow is of necessity, and is ordered by those laws which govern the sowing, and the reaping of that which is sown. Even here, in my own place, where many things both wonderful and lovely we have learned, yet not yet have we attained to plumb and sound this mystery to its lowest depth. We do understand, as we were unable when in the earth life, that it is of love that these things are ordained. I say we are able to understand where formerly we were able but to say we trusted and believed. Yet little more of this awful mystery do we know; and are content to wait until it is made more plain to us. For we know enough to believe that all is wise and good; as those in those in dark hells will know one day. And this is our comfort that they will and must be drawn onward and upward into this great and beautiful universe of light, and that then they will confess, not only that what is is just, but that it is of love and wisdom too, and be content.”
We are told, that like children being disciplined, we rebel against authority, but as we grow older we understand what our parents were trying to teach us. Older still, we comprehend the reason and the method used. The lessons given to us are given in love. Affording us a path to improve is a sign of the love that God has for us. Our trying our best is a sign that we return the love of God.
The first place is to learn what the basic tenets of Spiritism are and how your life is planned so you can improve. You can begin by reading The Spirits Book, by Allan Kardec, or you can read my book, about how the trials we are presented on earth help to prepare us for the path upward, The Problem is the Solution – 7 Life Complications Sent to Test and Teach You.

He introduced the video: “The well known Brazilian actor Renato Prieto talks about his relation with Spiritism. He featured in the movie Astral City: A Spiritual Journey in the leading role as André Luiz. The film was based on the book “Nosso Lar”, a landmark in Spiritist Literature.”
There are fascinating stories in the video. He talked about his previous life as an actor in France. He also talked about his mother, who told him that 70% of your life is predetermined, and you only have to make the correct choices in the remaining 30%.
I absolutely recommend this video, the story is amazing!
Here is the link to the movie, Nosso Lar, it costs $3.99 to rent on YouTube. It is in Portuguese with English subtitles. You can also buy it on Amazon, I did and it is one of the very few films that I watch over and over again.
We Live in a Sea of Spirits. Spirits are all around us. Good, loving, and benevolent spirits and ignorant spirits, who like to play with us, use us, or even do us harm. We are on this planet so we may learn to defend ourselves against the bad ideas and to allow the good inspirations through the filter of our conscience. Click here to watch my YouTube video.

In the book, Hail Christ!, dictated by the spirit Emmanuel to Francisco C. Xavier, there are passages on what the early church was like for the first Christians. The book is set around 200 AD, the Emperor Caracalla had just died, in 217 AD. Christians were still being persecuted. There was, as yet, no organized Bible, only various writings by disciples and others. Read More.
