Psychometry – How it Works According to Spiritism



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.


The definition of psychometry is:

“The alleged art or faculty of divining facts concerning an object or a person associated with it, by contact with or proximity to the object.” [1]

In the book, In the Realms of Mediumship, psychographed by Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier and inspired by Andre Luiz, the team that Andre is on is exploring all types of mediumship. In the chapter that I cite, the group is exploring psychometry. In order to learn in the field Andre and the team enter a museum. His team leader, Aulus, tells the group:

“A lot of spirits with minds fixated on the past frequent places like this for the simple pleasure of recalling it,” remarked the Assistant.”[2]

Once inside Andre perceives that most of the pieces in the museum are covered with opaque fluids. Spread around the fluids were points of light. Aulus explains to the group what they are detecting:

“All the objects framed by those fluidic substances are strongly remembered or frequently visited by those who used to possess them.”[3]

Some of the objects without the grayish mass are those that are not thought of or remembered by anyone.

Andre spots an antique clock. This is what happens next:

“Aulus suggested that I touch it, and almost instantly on my mind’s eye I saw a lovely family George_Washington_French_Empire_mantel_clockmeeting, in which an older couple was enjoying a conversation with four young people in the prime of their lives.

With that living picture projected in my inner mind, I examined the pleasant and stately room. The Austrian furniture added a sobriety and nobility to the ambient, which was decorated with vases of flowers and valuable paintings.

The clock was there as well, dominating the scene from an old wall, adorned with care.”[4]

Hence, the clock stored the images via the vibrations of the memories of the people present. Aulus leads Andre and his co-workers through exactly how this phenomena operates:

psychometry“The clock is enveloped by the mental currents of those still attached to it, much like the copper is sensitized by the electric current while conducting electric energy. As we examine it in its present state, we are immediately tuning in to the memories of the people who cherish it.”[5]

Therefore, our thoughts, which we radiate in all directions, like a radio tower that is always on, accumulate upon the object of our attention. Aulus explains further:

“Thought spreads our own emanations everywhere it is projected. We leave spiritual vestigesPageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00061] wherever we project the rays of our mind, just as an animal leaves traces of its characteristic odor, making itself easily trackable by the dog’s olfactory sensitivity. When freed from the dense body, our senses become more acute and thus we can easily perceive such phenomena within the sphere that limits our evolutionary aptitudes.”[6]

As a bloodhound can sniff our trail with amazing accuracy, spirits can access any objects that have been associated with us and playback any scenes that are trapped in the article.

Aulus also confirms that one could use the thoughts attached to the clock to find the spirits who left their vibrations. Since each spirit has a unique vibratory identification.

One of the group asks that does the phrase, “within the sphere that limits our evolutionary aptitudes” mean that lower spirits could not detect the thoughts of higher spirits. Aulus confirms that hypothesis:

“That’s right. Those who have reached a level that we cannot even imagine have ascended to other realms, transcending our manner of being and expressing ourselves. Their thoughts vibrate on another frequency altogether. Of course, they can accompany and assist us, because it is the Law that spirits from a higher order can come down to spirits of a lower order whenever they want, but we, in turn, cannot go up to them.” [7]

Aulus goes further and tells the group that if the group concentrated more on the clock they would be able to discover the history of the raw material that the clock was made of.

inspirationTherefore, any inanimate object is able to record not only thoughts from spirits, but also from events from nature. All thoughts, all matter is composed of vibrations, these vibrations leave traces of their existence as they spread across the universe.

The world beyond ours, what the Druids called “The Other Place” is remarkable. The more we understand how the Spirit world works, the more we are able to comprehend the so-called unexplainable phenomena which occurs on earth. What our current culture would like to dismiss as mere illusions.
