Bezerra de Menezes was a Brazilian doctor and politician who stunned Brazil’s society when he declared himself to be a Spiritist in August 1886. He is credited with the first growth of Spiritism in Brazil. He died in 1900, ten years later Chico Xavier was born to continue with the work of establishing Spiritism in Brazil.

 

Prayer for Family Unity

Blessed be our lives,

Praising God our Father,

Every day of our walk,

United in the family angle,

To carry out our earthly journey,

 

We fulfill the sacred role, oh! Sir,

To walk the paths of life,

From birth to the return to the spiritual homeland,

With the divine mission of evolution,

Progressing step by step, in our earthly march,

 

We were all born into the family, Beloved Father,

United in blood ties,

To facilitate joint evolution,

Of the members of this lineage of people,

Around higher purposes,

 

Nobody is born, Lord God,

In a family community by chance,

Because each member of the intimate caste,

It has a relevant role to play,

In everyone’s evolution,

 

Knowing yourself, generous Heavenly Father,

That the threads that weave personal relationships,

Among members of the same family,

They keep reasons prior to their existence,

Now of feelings of affection, and spontaneous friendship,

But sometimes out of indifference or disgust,

And other times, of great disagreements and hatred,

Without apparent explanations,

 

We know how to treat ourselves, Lord God,

Of the fulfillment of your purposes,

Where no disagreement from the past,

You can never be without a friendly resolution,

Or even awarding good spirits,

Who are reunited in the bonds of love,

Conquered in previous lives,

 

Thus creating, generous Lord,

The conditions for renewing opportunities,

For all members of this new earthly family,

Now as challenges, now as tribulation,

Helping each other,

In the sacred task of everyone’s spiritual evolution,

 

Family unity, Beloved Heavenly Father,

It will be the basis for overcoming difficulties,

And the easiest way to solve problems,

Forming the ideal conditions,

From this group of spirits who were reborn,

To progress together on the path of life,

 

We know, Sir,

That there will be times of difficulties and sadness,

As well as moments of joy and satisfaction,

The moments of discouragement and weakness,

And the moments of courage and motivation,

 

In all these situations, generous God,

Family unity will be the difference,

Between success and failure, facing life,

But mainly before you, our Father,

 

Aware of these divine purposes, dear God,

We pray to you, by faith and merit,

Bless our family angle,

So that, united around mutual love and respect,

United around forgiveness and tolerance,

United in common goals,

We can progress in life,

In the moral, material and spiritual direction,

 

We ask, generous Father,

May you mobilize your angels and missionaries,

To assist us in this great endeavor,

That has enormous challenges and difficulties,

But that, with perseverance,

And with the help of our spirit guides,

We will go through successfully,

Our journey of life,

United in the family,

 

We know, however, Lord God,

That to overcome such challenges,

Each member of the family,

You will have to make your own intimate change,

Overcoming hurt and selfishness,

Moral imperfections, envies and intolerances,

And surrendering to brotherly love,

And generous charity to the other members,

To strengthen the family angle,

And the progressive evolution along the journey,

 

So be it,

The Importance of the Family – According to Spiritism

The importance of the family for the Spirit world can’t be overstated. Let’s begin with three passages from Kardec’s The Spirit’s Book;

The one must read book in the series of book about Spiritism

The Spirits Book

695. Is marriage, that is to say, the permanent union of two beings, contrary to the law of nature?
“It is a progress arrived at by the human race.”

Bring the Family Together One Night per Week

gay-familyA good practice, and one that is encouraged by Spiritism, is to get the family together one night a week, the same night and at the same time, each week. We do, we start out with a prayer, then we use  any of the books on Spiritism and read, taking turns, paragraphs of the section you will study that night. We particularly like the book, Jesus in the Home. Don’t hesitate to stop after an interesting passage and discuss a subject. Going off in tangents is no harm either. With children, let them free associate and wander where the concepts take them. You never know, we have hadJesus-in-the-home-book some of the best laughs during these sessions.

Take at least 30 minutes. Have a family prayer afterwards. It will serve as an introduction to Spiritism for the children and let them know the importance of God in their lives.

 

Family Problems? There is a Reason

familyproblemsAre you experiencing problems with some of your family and have no reason why? You have tried everything and they still just don’t like you? Or worse, are they are nice to you and you can’t help yourself but to reject them? There is a reason, and as part of your trials on earth, you have been reborn with past adversaries, it may have been a rival, a person who assaulted you, or a myriad of reasons for that indistinct feeling of revulsion.

The Importance of the Family According to Spiritism

familyThe importance of the family for the Spirit world can’t be overstated. Let’s begin with three passages from Kardec’s The Spirit’s Book;

The one must read book in the series of book about Spiritism

The Spirits Book

695. Is marriage, that is to say, the permanent union of two beings, contrary to the law of nature?
“It is a progress arrived at by the human race.”
696. What would be the effect, upon human society, of the abolition of marriage?
“A return to the life of the beast.”
775. What would be the effect upon society of the relaxation of family ties?
“A relapse into selfishness” (The Spirits Book, Kardec).

Notice the short answers to the questions, as if they needed no further explanations and the truth was staring at you in the face. Only the first question requires a modifier. The question stated “the permanent union of two beings”, which was the custom and laws of that day (1850’s), whereby divorce was extremely rare. This situation led many couples into years of unhappiness. A further statement in The Spirit’s Book, qualifies it;

940. Is not the lack of sympathy between persons destined to live together also a source of sorrow, and one that is all the more bitter because it poisons an entire existence?
“Very bitter it is, undoubtedly; but it is usually a misfortune of your own causing. In the first place, your laws are at fault; for how can you suppose that those who dislike one another can be intended by God to live together?” (The Spirits Book, Kardec)

According to the Spirit world, not all marriages are perfect unions, since they are the product of people’s free choices and may be one of the many lessons we must learn in our lifetimes. Therefore, people are allowed to withdraw from a bad marriage, but how and when that is accomplished might incur debt which may have to be repaid later.
A successful family is made up of two kindred spirits. According to Spiritism, when spirits reincarnate, they could return as male or female.

202. Does a spirit, when existing in the spirit-world prefer to be incarnated as a man or a woman?

“That point in regard to which a spirit is indifferent, and which is always decided in view of the trials which he has to undergo in his new corporeal life.” (The Spirits Book, Kardec)

gay-familyTherefore, the sexual combination of a couple is not important; what is vital is the affinity of the spirits and their love for each other. A partnership which allows souls that see in each other the possibility to improve themselves beyond what they could achieve alone and to assist their partner in the same quest. In the book Missionaries of the Light, a spirit instructor discusses marriage and love on earth;

Chico Xavier

Chico Xavier

“Love on those lower planes is like gold lost in a large quantity of ore, demanding391041-gay-family great efforts and laborious processes to reveal itself to the experts. But among those humans, who do in fact are proceeding toward their elevation, the sexual union is much different. It entails the sublime exchange of perispiritual energies, symbolizing divine nourishment for the mind and heart, and creative power not only for children of the flesh but also for generous deeds and achievements of the soul for life eternal”(Missionaries of the Light, p. 199).

Reincarnation – Existing Family Bonds are Strengthen through Multiple Lives

HappyFamilyPeople wonder do we have many families, mothers, fathers, and so on as we travel through multiple lives. How do we manage having a menagerie of relatives while in the spirit world? The answer is we don’t; read on and find out why. Read More.

Meet Once a Week to Improve Your Family’s Spiritual Health

familyGet the family together one night a week, the same night and at the same time, each week. Take The Gospel According to Spiritism, or any of the booksthe-gospel-according-to-spiritism on Spiritism and read, taking turns, paragraphs of the section you will study that night. Take at least 30 minutes. Have a family prayer to begin and afterwards. It will serve as an introduction to Spiritism for the children and let them know the importance of God in their lives.

When you select the same time and place, spirits will realize what is occurring and will come to your meetings to assist you. We place water in the middle of the table. The spirits will magnetize it for you and after the meeting we each have a cup.

Jesus-in-the-home-bookA good book for families is Jesus in the Home, it contains small chapters, each with a lesson from Jesus as he talked to his disciples in Peter’s house.
