“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.”
Like many others, I am extremely suspicious when I hear of religious healing. I think of naive people receiving faith healing with tragic consequences if they stop taking their medicine, or even worse, never see a doctor. Therefore, I wanted to visit a Spiritist healing center to determine their process and what they actually provide. Read More.
Throughout the ages people have reported messages from the spirit world, the “other side”, as the Druids called it. Are all of these communications just a manifestation of our collective imagination or is there something really out there? I believe there is and there is a growing mound of research that points in that direction. Read More.
On our Facebook group, Spiritism and the Spirit World Around Us (please join – by the way), a person posted a list of questions regarding mediumship. I thought the questions were great. They demonstrated a deep knowledge of the problems and concerns of starting out on the road to being a medium.
Here are the questions:
How does a contact between a medium and a spirit-being come about?
How do you prepare a mediumistic session?
How do you prepare the location of the mediumistic session?
What are the means you work with?
What are the possibilities you employ to reduce radio and TV frequencies?
How do you educate and instruct the medium?
What are the preparations the medium undergoes?
In what way do you help the medium with the preparations?
How do the participants of the session help the medium?
How does the person in charge of the session prepare himself/herself?
Does the person in charge help the medium with the preparations, and if so, in what way?
Does the medium consciously feel and experience his or her own energies?
Does the person in charge feel and experience his other own energies?
Is the same person in charge a medium?
What is the spiritist-scientific approach to self-knowledge in order to prepare a medium?
How does a medium get rid of the energies to which he or she is exposed on a daily basis?
How does a medium discharge his or her own energies, accumulated through behavior and, which hinder the mediumistic work?
How does a medium energetically prepare for the mediumistic session?
How does the person in charge energetically prepare for the mediumistic session?
How do the other participants prepare?
What is the difference between a mediumistic and a spiritist session?
What indications have your Spirit Guides given you in respect of these questions?
In the true spirit of Spiritism, instead of answering each one, and probably getting the answer incorrect, I will point out the various resources in which these questions (and more) are fully discussed and answered.
Plus, I would like to point out that in many of the Andre Luiz series of books, these types of inquires are touched upon.
The list of books one should read to explore the world of mediumship and to understand the spirit world on the other side of the line are:
1. The Book on Mediums – by Allan Kardec, available on Amazon and on PDF.
2. In the Domains of Mediumship – by Francisco C. Xavier, available on Amazon.
3. Disobession – by Francisco C. Xavier and Waldo Viera, available on Amazon and on PDF.
4. We are all Mediums – by Odilon Fernandes and Carlos Baccelli, available on Amazon and on PDF.
We all want to know the future. If we had our way we would get a display of the events that will occur to us every day and be secure in our knowledge of the future. But what would happen if on that screen it says at three p.m. you will die today? Your first act would be to change all of your plans, some may lie in bed waiting, and others flee to the farthest ends of the earth. Whatever the case, your normal routine and trajectory would be altered and the sequence of events that would have led to your death would have to change to in order to come to the same end or it could result in a different finish.

Many mediums have written how they have received communications from the spirit realm. Some say they channeled a certain spirit, others a collection of spirits of various levels. The information they share with us is often interesting and enlightening. But, do you ever wonder how the spirit realm manages the process of sending us new and vital information … revelations that are meant to change our lives? They don’t rely on a single spirit to a medium channel, they organize a group of spirits and insure their collective message reaches the mind of the medium in the correct fashion, character, and style.

According to Allan Kardec’s book, The Book on Mediums, we are all “Inspirational Mediums” (White Crow Books, 2010, p. 201). All of us are influenced by the good and bad spirits around us. Allan Kardec explains;
“Inspiration comes to us all, from Spirits who influence, for good or evil, in every circumstance of our lives, and in every resolution we make, and it may therefore be truly said that, in this respect, every-one is a medium, for there is no one who has not about him his familiar spirits, who do their utmost to suggest salutary or pernicious counsels to those with whom they are connected; a truth which, were we duly penetrated with its reality and importance, would frequently lead us to oppose a more effectual resistance to the suggestions of evil, by seeking the inspiration of our guardian-angel in our moments of uncertainty as to what we should say or do. At such times, we should invoke that watchful guardian with fervor and confidence, as a Providentially-appointed friend; and, if we did so, we should often be astonished at the new ideas which would arise in our minds, as though by enchantment, whether for the taking of an important decision, or for the accomplishing of our special work.” (pp. 201-202)
We all have had moments of inspiration, flashes of brilliance, which provides some key piece of knowledge that we have been searching for; these sparks are caused by spirits, who chose to influence us. Use the gems given to us, but first filter the idea through your conscience and instinct (see how your conscience and instinct are the accumulation of your past lives) to determine the validity of the suggestion.
Allan Kardec goes on to say that people of genius are mediums without being aware of it. These people have the innate sense to call superior spirits to provide the assistance they seek. Allan Kardec completes the section on inspirational mediums with this communication from the Spirit world;
“The communication of his thoughts by a spirit”
Is inspiration confined to the revelation of great things?
“No; it often has reference to the most commonplace circumstances of your daily life. for instance, you may have thought of going somewhere, but a secret voice tells you not to go, because there is danger in the way; or it tells you to do something which you have not thought of doing; this is inspiration. There are very few people who are not more or less ‘inspired’ in this way, at certain moment.” (p 203)
We are constantly guided on our path by the spirit world. To see how we are enveloped by the spirit realm read my book about my personal experiences, 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life. You will be surprised at the involvement into the smallest details in our lives by our spirit guardians.
Spiritism has brought forth a new generation of people who have been destined to communicate with the other side – the spirit world. Christ has planned to open up multiple channels with us on earth so we may learn how we are guided throughout our lives to become better humans. Click here to watch the video.
