Spiritism 101

Where to find answers to human questions
When Marcelo Netto read “The Gospel According to Spiritism” for the first time, he found the true meaning of life. Based on instructions from Superior Spirits, Allan Kardec explains the moral maxims of Jesus, inviting us to experience them in our day-to-day life. Exposing with clarity and simplicity to reason and heart, “The Gospel According to Spiritism” is the bedside book of thousands and thousands of people.
The Law of Cause and Effect | A Quick Explanation
“Since God can neither punish us for the good we have done nor for the evil we have not done, then if we are being punished it is because we have done evil. If we have not done evil in this life, then we did it in another. This is an alternative that is impossible to escape and whose logic shows on what side the justice of God lies.” Chapter 5 in "The Gospel According to Spiritism" by Allan Kardec.
Thoughts from the invisible world
When our own thoughts do not resonate even for us, we have to wonder. By Andreia Marshall
A Spiritist Perspective on DEPRESSION
"Do you know why a vague sadness sometimes weighs upon your hearts and makes you find life so bitter? It is your spirit, which aspires to happiness and freedom, and which, bound to the body that serves as its prison, exhausts itself in vain efforts to escape. However, seeing that such efforts are useless, it falls into despondency, and the body, bearing the spirit’s influence, sluggishness, dejection and a kind of apathy, seizes you and you find yourself unhappy. (...) If during the course of this trial, and while performing your task, you see worries, troubles and vexations fall upon you, be strong and courageous in order to bear them." Chapter 5, "Blessed are the afflicted," of the book "THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SPIRITISM":
Every individual who senses the influence of spirits to any degree of intensity is a medium. This faculty is inherent to humankind. Psychography is the writing of spirits by a medium's hand. The medium can be consciously or unconsciously about what he is doing and writing.
