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.

In the book, In the Greater World, Andre Luiz was having a discussion about mediums who would say things that were probably from their own mind instead of the spirit who was communicating. Andre’s instructor explained why this could occur, through no fault of either party. Read More.
In the book, In the Realms of Mediumship, psychographed by Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier, and dictated to him by Andre Luiz, there is a discussion about mediums. Read More.
Mediums who have encountered spirits often are frustrated when they communicate with spirits, who seem to be the person they wish to speak with, but the spirit can’t come up with an exact name or date of an episode that the medium wishes them to recall. Read More.
There is constant communication from the spirit realm to our earthly physical world. We are, for the most part, unaware, but there are people, who have been given certain talents, who have the ability to receive messages from a different dimension. These individuals have been amongst us throughout history, they are called by various names; witches, psychics, medicine women and men, priests, nuns, we shall call them by name given to them by Spiritism; mediums. 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.
I was kindly invited to a mediums meeting in a Spiritist Center in Rio de Janeiro on February 1, 2018. My wife and I try to visit the Spiritist Center each time we travel to Rio. The people there are extremely gracious. The Spiritist Centers is a place to hold meetings – lectures about different aspects of Spiritism, gather food for the needy (which there a many in these bad days for the economy in Brazil), and help discarnate and incarnate spirits.
The meeting we were at, was for discarnates, who had problems and/or were lost in the strange world of the spirits after death.
The mediums started the meeting with a prayer, then read various passages from Spiritist literature, then they turned out the bright lights and left one small blue light on.
They assisted many spirits in the two hours during the meeting, so I will touch upon just a few:
One medium was the channel for a man who had recently died. He was in agony and could feel his body decomposing. The consoling medium (the person who will talk to the spirit via the trance medium’s body), tried to explain that he was dead and now he was in the spirit world. This situation happens quite allot, because so many people do not believe in the after life. As I have written before, our minds affect the environment in the spirit universe. Hence, if a person does not believe in God, they expect nothing after death. Therefore, while their spirit lives on, they are still attached to their old body, which is slowly decaying. Higher spirits try to help these people realize the actual facts of their new environment.
A woman medium was channeling a woman spirit who was in extreme agony. She was crying profusely, so much that I couldn’t understand her Portuguese at all, when she talked. But then another woman medium started to channel, and she said, “Hey, what is this crying all about!”
“I don’t want to hear that. I am here for justice! This man was obsessed with me. He killed my husband, who I loved so he could have me. I want a court to try him!”
The consoling medium tried to tell her to pray to Jesus for resolution and help in this case. She told the poor spirit that one day she would be reborn once again to repair what was done to her. She replied in a startled voice, “You mean I can come back, like a cat! This is like voodoo!”
Here is a woman, locked in the Lower Zone, with little or no knowledge of how the spirit universe she lives in really works. This, once again, illustrates, that when we pass over to the other side, we don’t suddenly become good or knowledgeable. We are who we were.
Next, another medium, a man, started to channel. He said, “I love her! I want to be with her!” Then a different consoling medium, told him to let go of his passion, that his feelings weren’t love. He was hurting the object of his desire. He replied, “But I love her so much, I can’t stop!”
The conversation went back and forth for a while, but eventually he said he would think about it and try to be a better person.
After the last spirit was assisted, the spirit mentor of the Spiritist Center, spoke through a medium, thanking everyone for their presence and help in the nights task. After that, each medium talked about their experiences. There were eight mediums at the table. My wife and I sat against the wall, listening.
Spiritist Centers are dedicated to helping everyone. The Spiritist mediums at the meeting were helping spirits in the Lower Zone. They gave of their time freely. Each medium in the group had to undergo a year of training before they could sit at the table.
For those who are interested in mediumship, you should read the Book of Mediums by Allan Kardec. Attempting to have conversation with spirits is dangerous without training and precautions. In Spiritist Centers, the mediums meetings is held the same night of the week at the same hour, so the room and be protected by the mentor spirits, to insure only spirits who need assistance and are controlled by higher spirits are allowed to be present.
I hope this illustrates a little what goes on during Spiritist Medium’s meeting and how higher spirits attempt to help everyone in need.
I recommend you learn more about the spirit world and our place in it by reading my set of three books from the Rev. G. Vale Owen.
Shock of Experiencing Mediumship the First time – Seeing Spirits can be Unsettling. When a person first discovers they have the ability to see spirits (ghosts), they may at first be frightened and extremely emotional. This is natural because they aren’t sure what is actually happening. The cure to become more relaxed with your talent is education. Learning about the spirit realm will enable you to calmly analyze what you are seeing, hearing, and feeling. Click here to watch my YouTube video.
Zabdiel in his communication with the Rev. G Vale Owen, on December 1, 1913, states the primary reason Jesus was sentenced to death by the ruling Jewish religious order was because He told the people that life wasn’t just on earth; our dusty plane was only a lowly way station … and those in charge of humans on earth were poor reflections of the governance of high spirits.
Zabdiel explains further:
“Throughout His teaching this is the one great motive, and for this it was that His enemies put Him to death. Had His Kingdom been of this world alone He had not discounted their temporal aspirations, nor their manner of life as to its ease and grandeur. But He showed that the Kingdom was of those higher realms, and that the Church on Earth, was but the vestibule to the Presence Chamber. This being so, then the virtues by which nobility should be measured were those which governed rank in these brighter regions, and not the mixed conditions of the lower portion of that Kingdom, as interpreted by the world.”
Being compared to decent, loving, caring, and honest souls residing in the spiritual realm was unacceptable to the rulers on earth. They knew that in comparison they would constantly fail. And this is still true today. The vast majority of regimes are built on corrupt edifices, who are mainly concerned with command and control of the population; not their welfare.
Zabdiel exhorts us to seek out higher spirits and learn about their loving presence. He tells us:
“Also, it is on our part a marvel that men should be found who hesitate on the way, and fear that to speak to us is a wrong, and displeasing to Him Who Himself came into the world for this same reason; that He might show how both spiritual and material were but two phases of one great Kingdom, and the unity of both together.”
Most religions today, the Catholic Church being one of them, attempt to dissuade their followers from direct contact with benevolent spirits. They seek to control knowledge and access. Religions which preach that talking to spirits are really talking to demons, have a point. There are many low and malevolent spirits wandering the earth which may fool the unwary.
The remedy is education on how to detect spirits with our best interests at heart to those that use us for amusement or worse. Spiritism was revealed to us to supplement our knowledge and take it out of the hands of secretive orders.
Allan Kardec wrote about how to discern the quality of spirits in one of the 1858 editions of his magazine, Spiritist Review. He wrote about a young medium who was fooled by a lessor spirit into performing nonsensical acts.
The United States Spiritist Council, published the entire editions of Kardec’s magazine for the year 1858 and it makes fascinating reading. The title of the book is, Spiritist Review – Journal of Psychological Studies – 1858, published in 2015. The link to the book on Amazon is here.
In the article about a young medium and how he was tricked, Allan Kardec lays out eight main points to remember when dealing with spirits. Each one is worth keeping in mind when dealing with the “Other World”.
“1. The spirits are not all equal nor in power, nor in knowledge or wisdom. As they are no more than human souls detached from their corporeal body, they present a variety even greater than that of people on Earth, because they come from all worlds and, among the globes. Earth is neither the most basic nor the most advanced. Thus, there are very superior spirits as there are very inferior ones; very good and bad; very wise and very ignorant; there are those of levity, malevolence, liars, astute, hypocrites, polished, sharp, jokers, etc.
2. We are incessantly surrounded by a cloud of spirits that occupy the space around us, despite the fact that we cannot see them, watching our acts, reading our thoughts, some to do us good, others to do us harm, whether good or bad spirits, accordingly.
3. From the physical and moral inferiority of our globe in the hierarchy of the worlds, the inferior spirits are more numerous here than the superior ones.
4. Among those spirits that surround us there are those that attach to us; that act more particularly over our thoughts, giving us advice, and whose influence we follow unnoticeably. Good for us if we hear the voice of good spirits only.
5. The inferior spirits only bond to those that listen to them, that give them access and to whom they connect. If successful on dominating someone, they identify with their own spirit, fascinating then, obsessing them, subjugating them, and leading then as one does to a child.
6. Obsession can never happen but by inferior spirits. The good spirits don’t produce any kind of coercion, combat the influence of the bad spirits and stay away when they are not listened to.
7. The degree of coercion and the nature of the effects it produces determine the difference between obsession, subjugation and fascination.
Obsession is the almost permanent action of a strange spirit that leads the person to be solicited by an incessant need to act by this way or the other and to do this or that.
Subjugation is a moral bond that paralyzes the free will of the one that suffers it, pushing the person to the most reckless attitudes, frequently most contrary to their own interest.
Fascination is a kind of illusion produced by the direct action of a strange spirit or by his cunning thoughts. Such as illusion produces an alteration in the comprehension of moral things, leading to misjudgment and to mistake evil for good.
8. Human beings can always disengage from the oppression of the imperfect spirits by their will power, by the choice between good and bad. If the coercion achieved the point of paralyzing the will and if the fascination is such that it obliterates reason, then the will of a third person may replace it.”
Therefore, for those in the process or just curious about communicating with the spirit world, one must be on guard and weary to whom you let into your house and mind. I recommend you find Spiritist centers where conditions are tightly controlled to communicate with spirits approved by higher spirits. There are never any charges for this service.
Zabdiel lets us know that until we gain a better communion with the spirit world, our progress remains difficult:
“For that they killed Him; and today there is remaining too much, as we see it, of their sentiment, both in the Church and in the world outside. And until men do realize us our presence, and our right of consideration as fellow-members of this same Kingdom of the Father, and not until this come to pass, shall men make much advance in the discerning between light and darkness.”
During the nineteenth, twentieth, and now the twenty-first centuries, there has been an increased activity in the spirit realm on our behalf. With the advent of Spiritism, in the 1850’s the seeds for the complete transformation of the earth have been planted. Zabdiel defines it as, “light being directed into the darkness.”
A plethora of new knowledge about the realm that put us here and guides our daily life is at our doorstep. It is up to each individual to determine whether it will be picked up and acted upon or not. All according to our free will.
The first place is to learn what the basic tenets of Spiritism are and how your life is planned so you can improve. You can begin by reading The Spirits Book, by Allan Kardec, or you can read my book, based upon how Spiritism has affected my life, 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life.
