control emotions

Unconditional Forgiveness of Offenses – Helpful for Ascension – YouTube

Unconditional Forgiveness of Offenses – (verse 15) – How to Live with Brian Foster of nwspiritism.com– from the book How to Live – Inner Peace through Spiritism.

There are many aspects to the requirement to unconditionally forgive others before one can find inner peace. Primarily, there is the anger inside you. Anger, a primitive emotion, meant mostly to keep us alive, but is of less use in a civilized society. Anger unbalances you, it adds stress which destroys your harmony and turns good vibrations into out-of-sync tones. And, holds you back spiritually. Click here to watch my YouTube video.

Better Start Controlling Your Thoughts Now – You are an open book in the Spirit World

mind-reading2After 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;

NossaLar-city“And what if I decide to revert to the type of shallow conversations or gossip so often heard on Earth?”

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.

 

 

Learn to Control Your Thoughts – We are Measured on how well we Maintain our Composure

This is just the first step, for as you ascend higher in the spirit realm, you will be trained to use your mind to create what you have willed. In other words, you shall have the ability to materialize objects out of the ether around you. I explain further in my article, Training of the Will, where you shall discover your ultimate power is beyond almost any fantasy novel you have read.

BookCover-ReincarnationWe travel through multiple lives for a reason, and that is to perfect ourselves in many circumstances and conditions. It’s not enough to be relaxed and in control most of the time, it must be a constant, otherwise we shall not be allowed to manipulate such power.  If you wish to learn more about how reincarnation is a process to remove all of our faults, please read my book, The Case for Reincarnation – Your Path to Perfect.

Revenge is not Needed nor Warranted – Karma will take care of all Transgressions – vlog

Revenge is not Needed nor Warranted – Karma will take care of all Transgressions. A desire for revenge against someone who wronged you is natural – given our primitive background. Whereas is was useful when living in a primitive society, it is no longer of use. We (all humans on earth) are being transitioned to a higher sphere. A level where we should cast off our primitive emotions and recognize that when people do wrong it is out of ignorance and that someday they too will become a perfect spirit. Therefore, plotting playback only serves to hold you back and does nothing for the other person – for they will certainly learn what they need and that will be done via Karma.

March forward, even across the shadow of your own mistakes.

Advance even if amidst tears.

Work continually.

Edify always.

Do not allow the frost of disenchantment to numb your heart.

Do not be susceptible to difficulties.

Convince yourself that victory is a daily achievement.

Do not give up patience.

Do not believe in accomplishments without efforts.

Apply silence to insults.

Oblivion to evils.

Forgiveness to offenses.

When People do things that make us angry

angerI was talking to a group of people about the difficulty of controlling our thoughts and the need to remain calm and understanding in all circumstances. The discussion was proceeding along the lines of ways to step outside yourself and analyze the situation first when one of the group said, “But there is this one person who deliberately does things to make me mad.”

Everyone instantly had the same look of recognition; we have all been there and darn it, if that individual would stop doing that, all would be right. It is, as if that person was performing an illegal act and deserved to be arrested, and, by the way, we all know force is needed when apprehending a criminal. So, reacting angrily is really the right thing to do. And besides if you don’t they won’t stop doing it.

Except it’s not. A voice inside my head said, “That’s your problem, not theirs. The spirit world is watching you, not them. This is a test and guess what; you just failed it.” But, that response would have been too harsh and would not serve to expose exactly why our reaction is more important than the deed which causes it.

When we are young we solve problems by just taking what we want or making a big noise in protest. The same goes for young spirits. Physical action or a verbal assault is the first remedy for any given situation. As we mature, we learn how to manage more situations in a civilized manner. The only problem is we haven’t learned how to handle all situations without evoking a strong negative emotional response. Myself included!

What we are actually seeing in those occasions where we react to the red flag is the part of the test where the professors expect most to fail. Questions are posed to separate the truly gifted from the adequate. Questions which have not been reviewed during the lecture, but if the student was diligently studying on her or his own, they could be mastered.

Therefore, welcome the chance for that annoying inquiry or comment that sends you to the darkest regions of your emotions. As soon as your blood rises, tell yourself, oh shit! This is a test and I can pass it! Challenge yourself to find ways to either brush it off and accept the behavior or work with the person to come to an understanding. Then push further and think of that person with love and 7Tenets-Front-smallkindness, knowing that we are all in a learning mode here on the campus called Earth.

Learn about the trials we must suffer through and how all of this is meant for our own good, by reading my book, 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life. We are surrounded by guardian angels and spirits who wish us well on our journey. Read how we are sent signs to put us on the right path.

In the Spirit we are Our Thoughts – This is Why we must keep our Thoughts Pure

By the Spirit Andre Luiz

By the Spirit Andre Luiz

In the book, Action and Reaction, by Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier, inspired by the spirit Andre Luiz there is a discussion about the power of thought. Andre was at a shelter, built and sponsored by Andre’s celestial city, Nosso Lar. The shelter, “Mansao Paz”, which means Mansion of Peace in English, is in the Lower Zone, so it can be close to the souls who wish to leave and ascend.

Inside the shelter there are poor souls who are disfigured. They are disfigured because their minds control their outward appearance. The person Andre talks to bring up the subject of radio and TV signals. Andre ask how is this pertinent, the learned spirit tells him about thoughts and the power of our mind:

“I’m referring to the subject to remind you that in radio and TV broadcasting, the electrons that carry voice modulations and the elements that form the images travel through space at cell-phone-transmitter-tower-thumb16351138the speed of light, that is, 186,000 miles per second. That means that in just one location a broadcasting and a receiving station can both operate at the same time; hence, in one second, images and words can be sent and received simultaneously after having crossed immense distances in space in an infinitesimal fraction of time. Now let’s picture our thought as a living and active force, whose speed is even faster that light. Emitted by us, it unavoidably returns to us, compelling us to live of our own accord in its wave of created forms, which naturally fix themselves in our mind when fed by the fuel of our desires or attention.” [Action and Reaction,  2010, p. 52]

First note that our thoughts move faster than the speed of light. In the spirit plane, the speed of light isn’t the universal speed limit. Second, we receive thoughts and process them. While in an incarnate state we do so subconsciously. We live in a world where we are being affected by forces that we do not detect.

The wise spirit continues on:

“Hence, the vital need for us always to keep ourselves in the noblest ideals and purest reincarnation3purposes of life, due to the fact that energies attract other energies of the same kind. Thus, when we dwell on vice or darkness, the mental forces that we exteriorize then return to our mind, forces which are reanimated and intensified by the elements in tune with them.  Consequently, we reinforce the bars of the prison in which we thoughtlessly remain, making our soul a closed world, where the voices and images of our own thoughts combine with the suggestions of those who are in tune with our behavior, thereby imposing recurrent hallucinations on us and temporarily neutralizing our senses.” [Action and Reaction, 2010, p. 53]

Our negative thoughts attract other negative thoughts, creating an ever stronger feedback loop. This is why the advice to get yourself out of a depression is to think positive or become preoccupied with something else is actually an excellent suggestion. We need to break the cycle and cease reinforcing reasons for our failure.

Instead, we should strive to prepare ourselves now for our life as a spirit and recognize the power of thought and train our minds to remain positive and caring. When problems arise, we should trust in our life blueprint and know that any trial ahead is one that we requested. Staying calm and focused during any difficult episode is half the battle.

3D-Explore-Small-coverIf you wish to learn more about your destiny, please read my book, Explore Your Destiny: Since your Life’s Path is (mostly) Predetermined. Your purpose in life and how you are expected to learn and ascend is thoroughly described.

There is a Reason that Jesus said to Make Peace with your Enemies

humility“Be reconciled as quickly as possible with your adversary, while you are with him on the way so that he does not hand you over to the judge, and so that the judge does not hand you over to the Minister of Justice, so that you may not be imprisoned. Verily, I say to you that you will not leave there as long as you have not paid the last farthing.” (Mt. 5:25-26)

Is Jesus saying that just in this world make a deal before you go before the judge? And if he was why would he tell you that you had to pay the last farthing (cent)? He is saying that the enemies you make in this life will pursue you to the next, so you better clean up your mistakes while you can.

The Gospel According to Spiritism, tells us;

vengance“In their hatred, vengeful spirits often pursue beyond the grave those against whom they harbor rancor; thus the proverb that states; ‘The beast dead, the venom is dead’ is erroneous when applied to human beings. An evil awaits the one against whom it wishes evil to be imprisoned in the body and less free in order to more easily torment it, striking it in  its interests of dearest affections, In this fact, one can see the cause of most case of obsession, especially those that display a certain gravity such as subjugation and possession. Obsessed and possessed persons are therefore almost always victims of a prior revenge which they probably caused by their own conduct.” [Gospel According to Spiritism, Chap X, No. 6, p. 171]

Hence, let us learn rapidly to forgive and not to encourage vengeance. Lest the chaos and hatred we start could haunt us for many lifetimes and severely retard out progress. This is also why Jesus said, so many times in so many ways, that we should forgive.

Now you know that forgiveness not only allows our physical bodies to remain calm, since we free ourselves of negative thoughts and our stress levels decrease, but forgiveness also opens a clear path for us to plan out our next life. With less hindrances and possibilities of vengeful spirits throwing obstacles at us, we can, in a more clear-headed manner absorb and fulfill the 7Tenets-small3Dtasks assigned to us.

Live life as it should be by discovering the 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life, so you may recognize the signs presented to you by the spirit world and profit from their loving guidance.

 

Why we can’t have a memory of our previous lives

familyproblemsIn the book, Between Heaven and Earth, psychographed by Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier, a woman, Antonina, asked why we can’t have a living memory of previous lives? Why couldn’t we meet the people we love from other incarnations?

Clarencio, the dispenser of much good advice tells Antonina:

Between Heaven and Earth

Between Heaven and Earth

“In our present spiritual condition, we don’t know how to orient our desires toward what is best. Our love is still an insignificant fragment of light buried in the darkness of our egoism, like gold hidden in the earth in infinitesimal portions in a huge amount of ore. Just as the fibers of the brain are the last to be consolidated within the physical vehicle in which we incarnate, a complete memory of our past lifetimes is the last altar we set up in the temple of our soul, which on this planet is still in early phases of development. That is why our memories are fragmentary … Yet, from lifetime to lifetime, from ascent to ascent, our memory gradually changes into an imperishable vision on behalf of our immortal spirit.” [Between Heaven and Earth, 2011, p. 57]

There you have it, once again we find out that we here on earth are too immature to be able to be granted the full powers of a spirit. We can protest, but it would be like our kids whining to us, “But I am grown up!”, in a completely childish manner.

There is a way. Sorry to tell you, it involves hard work and the presence to maintain a good and loving attitude throughout all of your trials. A long road, but one with magnificent rewards.

ReincarnationBook-Small-3dTo learn more about how reincarnation works, read my book, The Case for Reincarnation – Your Path to Perfection. It explains how you determined the trials and body you have now so you can come to earth to learn and ascend to a higher spiritual level.
