What is the doctrine of Spiritism?
If you watch one video lecture on Spiritism, this is the one to learn about the inside world of Chico Xavier. Geraldo Lemos Neto gives his exclusive knowledge about the history of Chico Xavier (Francisco C. Xavier). He also relates his perspective of what Chico learned and the story behind the stories of the books psychographed by Chico. The video is in English. If you want to skip the introduction fast forward to minute 6:45.
Interesting points in the video:
Time: 52:54 – At the funeral of his step-mother, who he loved very much, he saw the house disappear, replaced by the universe, then balls of light came down and approached his step-mother. They transformed into angels, and all of the angels kissed his step-mother on her forehead. Next, his step-mother transformed herself into an angel, waved good-bye and left.
Time: 59.44 – Chico promised to psychograph 100 books, which he finished when he was about 60. He wanted to retire, his spirit guide, Emmanuel, told him that he had bad news for Chico, Jesus had decreed that Chico will spend the rest of his life writing more books. Chico eventually wrote 469 books. This goes to show you that in heaven as well as on earth, the reward for good work is more work. You need to listen to the end of this part, because it is very funny.
Time: 1:14:10 – Emmanuel materialized during a medium ship session. He was about 2 meters (6.5 feet) tall. He had a lighted torch in one hand and the book The Gospel According to Spiritist in the other hand. He told them them this would be the last meeting that materialism would occur. That Chico needs to focus all of his energies on writing.
Time: 1:22:06 – Chico would buy many books and magazines, his police escort wanted to know how he had time to read it all. Chico said he didn’t need to read the book or magazine, he only needed to put his hand on the cover. Chico didn’t understand how this power worked.
Time: 1:33:17 – Chico could also read minds. Chico would respond to people before they asked him questions. Geraldo told about the time he and his wife drove for 5 hours to get to Chico’s house. When they met Chico, he told them about their conversation in the car.
Time: 1:44:39 – In the mid-1980’s Chico predicted that Brazil would find oil. At that time, Brazil had to import all of their oil. Chico predicted that Brazil would find oil more than 5000 meters under the sea. Geraldo said everyone laughed inside, they didn’t believe him. Of course now it is true.
The importance of the family for the Spirit world can’t be overstated. Let’s begin with three passages from Kardec’s The Spirit’s Book;
695. Is marriage, that is to say, the permanent union of two beings, contrary to the law of nature?
“It is a progress arrived at by the human race.”
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.

According to Emanuel Swedenborg, author of True Christianity, published in the 18th century, it goes beyond the common definition of one human helping another. He writes;
“Surely everyone understands that loving many people in a group involves more love for our neighbor than loving an individual member of the group. Therefore smaller and larger communities are also our neighbor, because they are a plurality of people. It follows that someone who loves a community loves the individuals who are part of that community; someone who wishes a community well and gives benefit to it cares for its individuals.” Read More.
Why do we need to journey through childhood in each incarnation? There is a reason and Spiritism tells us why. Click here to watch the video.
There is a series of messages from the Apostle Paul in this website. The entire content is interesting and should be read. But, one of the saddest, is when Paul recounts how he listened to a speech given to a group of spirits who would no longer be allowed to incarnate on earth, due to their adverse actions and attitudes. Here is the text: Read More.
We Spiritists, are taught that we must pay in this life or the next for the wrongs we have committed. But for suicide, the payment is immediate. In Andre Luiz’s first book, Nosso Lar, psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier, published in 1944, Andre dies and is sent to;
“Actually, I felt like a prisoner trapped behind dark bars of horror. With my hair on end, my heart pounding, and scared stiff, I often cried out like a madman. I begged for mercy and clamored against the painful despondency that had taken hold of my spirit. But when my loud cries didn’t fall on an implacable silence, they were answered by lamenting voices even more pitiful than my own. At other times, sinister laughter rent the prevailing silence. I thought that some unknown companion out there was a prisoner of insanity. Diabolical forms, ghastly faces, animal-like countenances appeared from time to time, increasing my panic. When it wasn’t pitch dark, the landscape seemed to be bathed in a lurid light as if shrouded in a thick mist that was warmed from afar by the rays of the sun.” [Nosso Lar, 2010, p.17]
