Good, high spirits, descend into the Lower Zones and below to help poor souls trapped in an atmosphere of ignorance and malevolence. Often they stand passive, awaiting a call for help or an opportunity to assist. But, there are times when action is called for. Here is one such example. Read More.
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. Read More.
Who are we, what do we feel when we just pass over from the physical to the spiritual realm? The transition is difficult for many.

She tells us about one person who is experiencing the learning curve: Read More.
“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.”
Spirits who come to earth to watch over and guide us, aren’t omnipotent and ever-powerful creatures, they too require periods of rest and relaxation.

As we live through challenging trials in life, we often feel abandoned. Life may seem completely hopeless at times.

On earth, when a Church or a Temple or any building is built, the process entails creation of a design, afterwards a construction company is selected and begins hiring workers and suppliers to provide the materials. Assembling the physical structure is accomplished by manual labor. In heaven building a temple is also a collective effort, but it is a combination of the force of wills by multiple spirits.

“We may place in the first or highest rank those who have reached the degree of relative perfection which constitutes what may be called ‘pure spirits.’ We may place in the second rank those who have reached the middle of the ascensional ladder, those who have achieved the degree of purification in which aspiration after perfection has become the ruling desire. We may place in the third or lowest rank all those imperfect spirits who are still on the lower rungs of the ladder. They are characterized by ignorance, the love of evil, and all the low passions that retard their progress upwards.” Read More.
Those who have studied Ancient Egypt, the beliefs of the Israelites, and knowledgeable about the occult in many cultures understand that a name has a power. To invoke a name, alerts the spirit that they are being called.
According to some accounts, the calling of a name gives a person certain advantages over the spirit. E. A. Wallis Budge in his book Egyptian Magic (Dover Publications Inc.) tells us the following about the power of the names to the Egyptian: Read More.
There are high spirits amongst us, going about simple and humble lives in total obscurity. People who have next to nothing, yet are kind, generous, and caring. They never steal or rob, or shave money off the top or take advantage of others. They insist in remaining true to their fellow humans. These are the people we should idealize and hold up for recognition.
