The spirit Andre Luiz states that to achieve harmony and inner peace within yourself, you must possess the fortitude to sacrifice your own desires in pursuit of helping others. The messages from high spirits, via Spiritist mediums, don’t demand life in a hair shirt while exclusively tending to the needs of unfortunate people, only that we examine the situation and at times, think about serving first and ourselves second.

Tolerance – it sounds so easy. Love all, smile upon everyone, and be kind to those you meet. Simple in theory and harder in practice. Not difficult as far as controlling your speech or gestures, but the challenging part is your emotions welling up inside you. The spirit Andre Luiz specifically mentioned this because he knows full well, that as a human we have built up within our instincts a predilection to strongly desire conformity. Read More.
First Steps toward Increasing Your Spirituality. We have all, at one time or another, a longing to decreasing our quest for material goods and begin searching out a meaning for life. We intuitively know that we are not just carbon based life forms with a short expiration date – we feel there is something more, something higher than ourselves. So how do you start?

In The Urantia Book, Jesus talks about the differences between a religion of the mind and a religion of the spirit. Whereas the religion of the mind compels one to accept precepts and ideas imposed on you by others – where eventually dogma becomes a tool to force everyone in compliance. Religion of the spirit is an individual exploration for Divine Truth … the search for God. Read More.
According to the spirit Emmanuel, this quote isn’t trying to tell us to just survive until we die, but to live life with a goal and don’t waver in its pursuit. Emmanuel elaborated on the message in the New Testament:
“When the Master applauded persistence, he was referring to the arduous task of those striving for excellence on the spiritual path.” Read More.
Now that you understand what reincarnation is for (your path to perfection), the question is how do you succeed? What should be the governing philosophy of your life that will not only allow you to survive your trials but emerge victorious? Read More.
All of us have felt ready to give up the battle. In the book, Spiritual Wisdom: Missives of Hope, Chico Xavier writes of a young man who told others in the mediums meeting that he felt overwhelmed. His trials were too difficult, he could not find the inner strength to continue. He believed that he had signed up for an impossible task and could not decipher how he could surmount his problems.

None of them are official Spiritist writings, but I see many similarities and interesting observations. I have no knowledge if these are true or not.
A minister, of an unspecified religion, passed away. He was assigned a house on the second sphere of heaven. The spirit realm sent a woman to him to discuss why he was unable to speak, what he knew was the truth, to people who needed help with communicating with loved ones who have passed. Instead of assisting those in need he guided them elsewhere, for he was afraid to be exposed to scorn and ridicule from his colleagues.
This is one of many videos on different aspects of Spiritism, which I hope will be helpful for people interested in learning about the spirit realm and its relationship to us on earth. Below are links to my blog and books.
“The clear and precise idea that one holds of the future life provides an unshakable faith in the future. This faith carries enormous consequences for the moralization of human beings, because it completely changes the point of view from which they consider earthly life. For those who through their thought place themselves in the spirit life, which is limitless, corporeal life is no more than a passage, a brief stay in an ungrateful country. The vicissitudes and tribulations of life are no more than incidents which they bear with patience because they know that they are only of short duration, and that they must be followed by a happier state. Death no longer has anything terrifying about it and it is no longer a door to nothingness, but rather the deliverance that opens to the exile the entryway to a dwelling place of happiness and peace. Knowing they are in a temporary , not final situation, they accept the worries of life with more indifference, which results in a composure of spirit that mitigates their afflictions.”
Allan Kardec says it so well; once we fully comprehend the reason we are on earth and the fact it is but one episode in our life, we should calmly accept what comes and learn from it, not excessively worry about our situation. Since all that we are going through now is but a slight moment of time.
To fully understand how we are guided through life by the spirit realm, read my book, 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life. You shall discover that even in the midst of our most vigorous trials we are not alone.
