Leon Denis tells us that birth is the change of state to be afraid of. Death, which is the passage from a dense body, on a planet of atonement, is the true liberation to a healthy spirit body which never ages.
life after death
Another lecture by Geraldo Lemos Neto about life in the Spirit World. Geraldo goes into depth about life in the Spirit World. He should know, he worked with Chico Xavier for many years. The lecture is full of insights about our after-life.
Introduction ends at: 5:21
Interesting points in the video:
Time: 13:13 – Geraldo talks about Emmanuel Swedenborg, who lived and wrote about the spirit life 150 years before Allan Kardec. He was preparing the way for the lessons of Allan Kardec. Emmanuel Swedenborg wrote about the Spiritual cities. There are cities in heaven, although more perfect than on earth.
Time: 25:14 – Chico’s mother wrote a book (via psychography), Cartas de Uma Morta, (Letters from a Dead Woman). She says the spirit life is an extension of the human life. Geraldo quotes her explaining the universe, “There is no emptiness in the universe, all planetary zones are full of life”. The book was written in 1932.
Time: 35:10 – There are thousands of colonies, similar to Nosso Lar, each colony reflects the culture of the society that provides its spirit population.
Time: 52:14 – Chico’s sister was Catholic. She also sent messages to Chico. After her death, she was taken to a Catholic community, she was happy to see other church goers and priests. Her mother told her she would have a time of resting. Then her daughter asked her, “What about you mother, what happens to the Spiritists after death?”. Her mother said, that after a Spiritist dies, they are just assigned something to do. So there you have it, the reward for being a Spiritist, it’s immediate work in the afterlife.
Time: 1:16:30 – We can prepare now for the next life. We can visualize what we want to do and be in the next life. There is no reason for a mature adult to give up on their dreams. Study something new, do something useful, that will make a difference.
Time: 1:24:00 – Chico’s mother wrote in 1931 that they had “remote vision” (TV) in the Spirit World, she passed away in 1915. Geraldo asked Chico how does the science compare between here and on Nosso Lar; Chico said they are about 100 years ahead of us.
Time: 1:30:10 – Discussion of work and payment in the Spiritual World. The work week is 48 hours per week. Information about how long it takes to own a home.
Time: 1:47:18 – There was one chapter written about what happens to people who die in a plane crash. The higher planes of the Spirit World told Chico and Andre Luiz (the Spirit author) to take that chapter out, that we here on earth are not prepared to learn this.

Dimas was an untiring medium, who worked for the good of incarnates and discarnates. Hence, Andre was part of a spirit team who was sent to help Dimas disconnect from his physical life. It is worth noting, that one of the main obstacles, was the desire of his family for him to recover and once more be part of their life. The thoughts emanating from Dimas’ wife and children kept him tied to earth. The spirit team had to resort to the camouflage of making Dimas appear to recover, so his family would leave the spirit team a few hours of peace to begin the process to bring Dimas over to the spirit realm.
Upon his death, Dimas was placed in a coffin. Next, the coffin was taken to the cemetery, where the funeral procession included at least twenty discarnates, including the newly departed. At the cemetery, where the coffin containing the remains Dimas is being buried. Andre asks his director if he can pose some questions to Dimas. The Director gives his permission to explore more what it feels like to be newly dead.
Andre turns to Dimas, now a spirit and asks;
“Are you still experiencing any physical pain?”, I began.
“I still have a clear impression of the body I have just left behind,” he responded politely. “But I have noticed that, in wishing to remain close to my own loved ones and to continue on where I had been for so many years, I relive all the suffering that I endured. However, when I resign myself to accepting the higher designs, I immediately feel lighter and comforted. Despite the short amount of time that I have been awake, I have already been able to make such an observation.”
“And what about the five senses?” I continued.
“They are in perfect working order.”
“Do you feel hunger?”
“I actually can tell that my stomach is empty and I would be glad if I had something to eat, but this physical desire is neither uncomfortable nor torturing.
“Yes, although I do not suffer because of it.”
As usual Andre poses the questions we would all like to know. There are an enormous number of gems of information in each one of Andre’s books. I encourage our readers to discover more
about the spirit world by reading the books of Andre Luiz, starting with Nosso Lar, his story of his death and eventual rescue from the Lower Zone (or Umbra) to his time at the celestial city of Nosso Lar.
