Everyone is interested in the future. Well, it has all been mapped out. The endgame is known, the timing on how we get there is still a mystery, but it will come. All has been told to us in Allan Kardec’s The Spirits Book and in books psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier. This article will take you through the major prophecies and what we can expect and how they will affect us.
Within the world of Spiritism, there are several main sources to understand what the Spirit world has in store for us. The fountainhead of all glimpses of the future starts with Allan Kardec’s The Spirits Book and Genesis. They tell us of the ultimate goal for earth. The transition from an
expiratory planet (a place where we are learning and paying for our sins) to regenerative planet (where we are still learning, but life is more conducive to harmony and painful periods are balanced by periods of rest and happiness). The tactics and strategy for how this is accomplished are covered in Francisco C. Xavier’s books, mainly in the book On the Way to the Light, by the spirit Emmanuel.
First, let’s look at how the Spirit World looks at our planet. In the book Renunciation, dictated by the spirit Emmanuel to Francisco Xavier, a woman spirit (Alcyone) has decided to return to earth to assist her love, who has not progressed. She currently resides in a different part of the galaxy, Sirius, where she is asking for transport back to Earth, to be physically reincarnated once more. She enters the room to be transported and an official says;
“Who is the traveler who is going to the Dark Realms?”
“Alcyone. She has offered her services for further work among incarnate spirits on Earth.”
“What?” he asked, taken aback. “Alycone is going to drink the bitter cup of renunciation again?”
The “Dark Realms” is not a marketer’s idea of a description for an attractive vacation spot. It is as if we are given a choice of where we would like to go on vacation, the travel agent would say, “Would you like to go to Brazil, visit Rio de Janeiro, or to Afghanistan, visit the destroyed monuments and be kidnapped by the Taliban”. We have been tagged as an undesirable location by those who know of us and have no wish to visit. At least we know where we stand in the Universal order; low on the totem pole.
What are levels of the planets and where do we actually stand in the hierarchy?
Categories of Inhabited Worlds
A primitive world is just what it sounds like – primitive. Think, being lost in the Amazon or in New Guinea amongst cannibals. According to Allan Kardec’s The Gospel According to Spiritism, “On the least evolved worlds, the beings that inhabit them are, to a certain extent, rudimentary. They have the human form but are devoid of any beauty. Their instincts are not tempered by any sentiment of refinement or benevolence, or by any notions of right or wrong. Brute force is the only law. With no industry or inventions, they spend life in conquest of food.” There are vague notions of a Supreme Being, but overall, human spirits who have just reincarnated are sent here to first learn the consequences of evil.
World of Trial and Expiation
You are living on this world. There is more evil present than good. Now you know why life is not easy, because it is not supposed to be, while you are reincarnated on the planet Earth. There are three types of spirits who are residing on earth;
1. Spirits from Primitive worlds – They are on earth for an education, a chance to develop themselves through contact with more-advanced spirits.
2. Semi-civilized spirits – Spirits that are indigenous to earth, who have evolved little by little through long centennial periods.
3. Spirits undergoing trials from other planets – These spirits have already lived on other worlds, from which they were banished because they persisted in evil, and because they were a cause of disturbance to the good inhabitants. They have been relegated to living for a time among less advanced spirits, and since they carry with them their developed intelligence and the seed of acquired knowledge, they have the mission of helping them advance. That is why punished spirits are found in the midst of the most intelligent peoples. Having more sensitivity, the miseries of life are bitterer to them because sufferings bruise them more deeply than they bruise the primitive peoples, whose moral sense is more obtuse.
What is a “Regenerative Planet: like? There is an explanation in The Spirits Book;
“Thus, in worlds of higher degree that our earth, wars are unknown, because no one thinks of doing harm to his fellow-beings, and there is consequently no motive for hatred or discord. The foresight of their future, which is intuitive in the people of these worlds, and the sense of security resulting from a conscience void of remorse, cause them to look forward to death without fear, as being simply a process of transformation, the approach of which they perceive without the slightest uneasiness.”
Hence, a regenerative world, is one where spirits prepare themselves to transition from a planet of tests and atonements (our earth) to even higher worlds of spiritual purity. There is still evil present to remind us of past follies. At least our planet is on an upward trend. On our new regenerative world we will still have trials, to help us learn and grow, but we will not have to atone for our past mistakes. As in life, there is always another level to attain. The best news is that we will be free of the baser emotions of pride, envy, and hate.
On Happy Worlds, we still retain our human form, although the senses are more acute. The body changes, as described in The Gospel According to Spiritism, “The specific lightness of the body enables rapid and easy locomotion; instead of dragging itself laboriously over the ground, it glides – so to speak – over the surface or sails through the air with no other effort that that of the will, in the way in which angels are portrayed.” With the improvement in our bodies, the years of infancy and adolescent are shorter, while the average lifespan is much longer than on earth today.
Politically on such worlds, “relationships between nations are always friendly and are never disturbed by the ambition of dominating their neighbor, or by war, which is its consequence. There are no masters, slaves or privileges of birth; only moral and intellectual ascendancy establish the differences of conditions and confer supremacy. Authority is always respected, for it is conferred only on those who have merit and it is always exercised with justice.”
Hatred, jealousies and selfishness are not present. All feel a sense of fraternity and love, where the strong assist the weak. Possessions are in keeping with a person’s intelligence and no one lacks their basic needs for living. From here, the next transition is to a purified spirit, who lives on a heavenly world.
Heavenly or Divine Worlds
On a Heavenly or Divine world, there exists only pure spirits. There is no evil.
Our Future – The Foundation
We have a baseline, we are living in a world of Trial and Expiation and the goal of the Spirit world is to transition the earth to a Regenerative planet. We shall become a world where wars are unthinkable and free of pride, envy, and hate. This sounds impossible. First, all reality shows would be cancelled and whole industries wiped off the face of the planet. But think for a minute, how far we have come from days when the world was full of tribes, when the only law, was the law of survival.
Before we get to the future, let us look at the recent past. The Spirit world through the writings of the Spirit Emmanuel, who dictated the book, On the Way to the Light, to Francisco C. Xavier, explained the reasons for the major wars of the twentieth century. Essentially, Europe was the vehicle to incubate democracy and intellectual pursuits superior to that of other nations of the world. As always, the rule of action and re-action, caught up with the European nations and their violent history.
From the time of Ancient Greece, through the Roman Empire, and finally out of the Dark Ages, the nations of Europe advanced. Militarily, philosophy, and scientifically more development than the rest of the world. As the modern age appeared, Europe continued to advance its society and scientific areas, but as the 1900’s approached, the continent was caught in competition to see who could build a bigger colonial empire. The Franco-Prussian war of 1870 was a precursor to the terrible devastation of World War I. During this time the old colonial powers saw their reach severely diminished. World War II finished off any further thoughts of building empires by the nations of Europe. From these events we can determine that the Spirit world has continually strived for a society where all people partake in their governance and when those democratic or republican forms of government turned to despotism or aggressive and violent empire building, then these countries are slowly sapped of power by the machinations of the Spirit world.
Our Future – The Americas
The Spirit world’s vision could see the demise of Europe, therefore from the beginning of the discovery of the New World they started to plan for the future of the Americas. Emmanuel describes the plan to bring a fresh beginning to the new land;
“All the spirits called together to organize future progress flocked to the hemisphere of the New World. Many of them had acquired the sense of fraternity and peace after many struggles on their former continent.”
The Americas were being set-up for a greater good and primed to be ready for the next defining advancement. In parallel with sympathetic souls reincarnating in the Americas, a group of distinguished philosophers in Europe, such as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Montesquieu would lead the new American society into the future. The writings of these wise men were welcomed and adapted by the British Colonies in North America. When England refused the concept of equal representation, the American colonies rebelled and gained independence. The United States Constitution became the model for many countries.
In South America, the former colonies of Spain declared their independence in 1816. Later in 1822, Brazil proclaimed their emancipation from Portugal. Emmanuel makes the interesting observation;
“Attentive to the mission of the Brazilian people in the civilization to come, it is worth noting the efforts of the invisible plane in maintaining Brazil’s territorial integrity while the rest of the continent was being split into smaller republics.”
The Spirit world has a definite plan for the Americas; Emmanuel describes the mission of the New World;
“On that field of new and regenerative struggles, all spirits of good will could work for the advent of peace and fraternity for humanity’s future, and for that reason, having in mind the forthcoming centuries, they defined the role of each region on the new continents, placing the brain of the new civilization where today’s United States is located in North America, and its heart in the abundant and welcoming lands of Brazil in South America. The former was to hold the material powers; the latter, the first fruits of the spiritual powers destined for the planetary civilization of the future.” 
Hence, as the Spirit world has accomplished in the past, they are arranging key areas of the planet to lead the rest of the nations onto a path toward Spiritism. Where Brazil will supply the religious doctrine, which we are seeing presently, with the appearance of Chico Xavier and other notable mediums. Along with the emigration of Brazilians to the US to spread the word of Spiritism. More and more cities now have a Spiritist center ready to teach about the eternal doctrine.
While the United States, with its material prowess and the global reach of our cultural movies and TV distribution, shall invest enormous resources to ingrain the Spiritist Doctrine into our daily lives. How will this occur? As with most grand transitions on a planetary scale, it will coming rolling at us at less than glacial speed.
Actually, the transition has been occurring since mankind appeared on earth. It has always been planned to take us through the stages from primitive to one of atonement and now to regenerative. The flow is gradual and unstoppable. The New Testament foretold that a great division will be coming. Next Spiritism, brought the message that we are being prepared for the transition of the earth from an expiratory sphere to a higher level, where the good spirits are the majority of the planet. Allan Kardec, in his book Genesis, explains the implications of the final judgment, “Since the good must finally reign on the earth, it will be necessary to exclude spirits who are hardened in evil and who could bring trouble to it. God has already allowed them the time needed for their improvement; but when the time comes in which, through the moral progress of its inhabitants, the earth must ascend in the hierarchy of worlds, it will be off limits as a home for incarnates and discarnates who have not taken advantage of the teachings they have been in a position to receive there. They will be exiled to lowers worlds as formerly those of the Adamic races were exiled to the earth, and they will be replaced by better spirits”.
The weeding out of the reluctant spirits and the populating of the planet with good spirits will be a gradual conversion. We are being groomed to attain the state required for us to inhabit a non-expiratory world. In Genesis, the Apocalypse will not occur in a big bang but will be; “According to the Spirits the earth will not be transformed by a cataclysm that will suddenly wipe out an entire generation. The current generation will disappear gradually and the new one will follow it in the same way, without there have been any change in the natural order of things”.
Therefore, the process is and was happening all around us and is continual, from the first human discovering fire to the small gatherings of Spiritists. It is in God’s design that this conversion occurs. And again in Genesis, according to the Spirit world; “When something is in God’s designs, it must be accomplished one way or another. Men and women contribute to its execution, but no one is indispensable; otherwise, God would be at the mercy of God’s creatures”.
