Spiritism revealed to us, as others have done so, that we live on a planet where we coexist with spirits. Spirits good, bad, and indifferent … we come into contact with them wherever we go and do. What is unique to the message of Spiritism is that our behavior and innate character determines the type of spirits who are attracted to us. Read More.
Horse drawn carts, chariots, groups of people walking to the shores of a great ocean to greet new arrivals, all under the leadership of a high spirit … sounds like a passage from a fantasy novel.

So the Council gets agait, and, with no hurry, comes at such conclusion as, when put into operative form for the next age, will be harmonious with the acts of other Hierarchies who have in charge the guidings of planets other than this of earth.” 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.
