First Steps toward Increasing Your Spirituality. We have all, at one time or another, a longing to decreasing our quest for material goods and begin searching out a meaning for life. We intuitively know that we are not just carbon based life forms with a short expiration date – we feel there is something more, something higher than ourselves. So how do you start?

In The Urantia Book, Jesus talks about the differences between a religion of the mind and a religion of the spirit. Whereas the religion of the mind compels one to accept precepts and ideas imposed on you by others – where eventually dogma becomes a tool to force everyone in compliance. Religion of the spirit is an individual exploration for Divine Truth … the search for God. Read More.
Spiritual Advancements – Large steps may be easier than small. You think and prepare carefully when you determine to downsize, to cast off material obsessions and concentrate on spiritually educating yourself. On the other hand, the small details, the old habits can be more difficult to change. This is because the ingrained habits are part of your personality from your present and past lives – it takes more effort and repetition to remove them. Don’t be discouraged, it just takes time.

There is a wonderful movie, The Mothers Chico Xavier, the link to YouTube, for the full version, with English subtitles, is here.
The movie is about three mothers who have all lost children. They find their life transformed after receiving messages, via Chico Xavier, from their children who reside in the spirit world.
I am sure you will enjoy it!
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.
I was reading Saint Augustine’s book, City of God, he wrote the book after the Visigoths, under King Alaric, sacked Rome in the year 410. In many of the chapters he wrote about the complaints of the pagans against the Christians. A sense of the decline of the Roman Empire permeated the book. One chapter stood out, it described what St. Augustine felt the Roman citizens of the day really wanted. The type of culture and society, the leading Romans of the day desired to live in and wished to remain free to continue until their dying days. Read More.
Now that you understand what reincarnation is for (your path to perfection), the question is how do you succeed? What should be the governing philosophy of your life that will not only allow you to survive your trials but emerge victorious? Read More.
All of us have felt ready to give up the battle. In the book, Spiritual Wisdom: Missives of Hope, Chico Xavier writes of a young man who told others in the mediums meeting that he felt overwhelmed. His trials were too difficult, he could not find the inner strength to continue. He believed that he had signed up for an impossible task and could not decipher how he could surmount his problems.

None of them are official Spiritist writings, but I see many similarities and interesting observations. I have no knowledge if these are true or not.
A minister, of an unspecified religion, passed away. He was assigned a house on the second sphere of heaven. The spirit realm sent a woman to him to discuss why he was unable to speak, what he knew was the truth, to people who needed help with communicating with loved ones who have passed. Instead of assisting those in need he guided them elsewhere, for he was afraid to be exposed to scorn and ridicule from his colleagues.
This is one of many videos on different aspects of Spiritism, which I hope will be helpful for people interested in learning about the spirit realm and its relationship to us on earth. Below are links to my blog and books.
