All life is sacred and precious to the spirit world. Spiritism tells us that upon conception, the merger of spirit to flesh occurs. A distinct spirit gestates in the mother’s womb. While some pregnancies are terminated naturally or unnaturally the question answered by the spirit Arnel to the Rev. G. Vale Owen, is what happens to babies who have never taken a breath of fresh air? Read More.
Why must you travel through multiple lives? What are you supposed to learn?
In the book, Memoirs of a Suicide, a group of recovering suicides are being introduced to their mentors, who will help them prepare for their next reincarnation. One mentor is introduced and a compilation of his previous lives is given; Read More.
The spirit world promoted the rise and spread of Western Civilization for many reasons, but one of them was the creation of the middle class. Those warriors, who willingly show up to work every day, fulfill their tasks, attempting to live a decent life, not complaining and contributing their all, treating each other honestly and participating in the civil and spiritual lives of their community is a significant example presented to us by the spirit world. Why is this important? Because this is the future. When humanity is a collection of more good than evil, social divisions will gradually fade. Leaders will be in their position for merit only and nations will be at peace. We shall all be middle class. Read More.
Spiritism tells us that everything is connected … it’s not meant as a metaphor, but as a fact. We live in a universe that we perceive as being anything but connected. We feel isolated, alone, and abandoned – frequently.
Are 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.
If we do reincarnate, then how it is done? Do we remember who we were, what we did? Why must we endure childhood? How do we keep “ourselves” through the first stage of our life? The process is fully explained by Spiritism.
Seeing poor souls in misshapen bodies, or those with other types of severe disabilities is one of the main reasons why many people question the existence of God. How could God be so cruel? Unfortunately, some spirits must go through these types of trials. Find out the reasons in this article. Read More.
“Therefore, since we too are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us leave behind everything that hinders. – Paul (Heb. 12:1)
This concept of Paul of Tarsus deserves special consideration by students of the Gospel.
Each human existence is always an invaluable day of struggle – a generous step toward an infinite ascension – and whatever their situation may be, people will always be surrounded by an enormous legion of witnesses. We are not only referring to those who are part of our own family circle, but above all, the friends and benefactors of each individual, who watch over him or her in different situations of life from the lofty realms of higher spirituality.
All over the world, disciples are surrounded by a large cloud of spirit witnesses, who follow their every step, taking note of their attitudes, for no one has come to the earthly experience by chance, without solid reasons based on love or justice.
Generous spirits endorsed the requests of the repentant soul prior to its reincarnation; judges took part in the processes related to it, and friends interceded in the service of assistance, contributing to organizing the particulars of the redemptive struggle… These friends and guides steadfastly watch over their ward throughout the new task and speak to him or her without words in the innermost reaches of the conscience. Parents and children, husbands and wives, siblings and blood relatives of the world are protagonists of the evolutionary drama, whereas these watchful observers usually remain on the other side of life.
This very day, do as much good as possible for your partners in the struggle, and do not forget those who, full of concern and love, watch over you in spirit.”[i]
Nothing could be plainer. We are supported by an army of loving spirits. All who have our best interests at heart. While it may not seem so, in the middle of our daily dramas, we have the capacity to grow and make them proud of us by our actions every day.

As you progress up the spiritual ladder, learning to be more loving, selfless, and less materialistic, you may move out of the earth’s sphere as your training ground. Spiritism has revealed to us that there is a progression of worlds. The earth is a planet of atonement, where a relatively immature spirit is sent to rid themselves of their rougher edges, such as the baser emotions of envy, hate, and a thirst for revenge. Once one has reached a spiritual plateau, or, more precisely, graduated from requiring a planet of atonement to remove baser characteristics; a different instructional campus is mandated.
985. When a soul is reincarnated in a world less gross than the earth, is such a reincarnation a reward?
“It is a consequence of its higher degree of purification; for, in proportion as spirits become purified, they
reincarnate themselves in worlds of progressively higher degrees, until, having divested themselves of all materiality and washed themselves clean of all stains, they enter on the eternal felicity of the fully purified spirits in the presence of God.”
In worlds in which the conditions of existence are less material than in ours, the wants of their inhabitants are less gross, and their physical sufferings are less acute. The men of those worlds no longer possess the evil passions which, in lower worlds, make them each other’s enemies. Having no motives for hatred or jealousy, they live in peace with one another, because they practice the law of justice, of love, and of charity and they therefore know nothing of the worries and anxieties that come of envy, pride, and selfishness, and that make the torment of our terrestrial existence.
Hence, as a student progresses from an elementary level to a middle school level, we too advance to different learning institutions. In our case the campus is an entire planet. As an added bonus our physical form will alter, ranging from slight alterations of the human form to more dramatic. In our new place of learning, we shall encounter a more gentile atmosphere, an environment conducive to intellectual growth instead of targeting the transformation of our emotional and moral states.
