You might be wondering, what Spiritism is?

“Spiritism is a science which deals with the nature, origin and destiny of Spirits, as well as their relationship with the corporeal world” Allan Kardec.

Hence, Spiritism is like a sort of religion/ philosophy and for those who practice it, is a way of living.

It was found in the mid 19th century by the French educator and philosopher with the pen name Allan Kardec. He dedicated over 10 years of his life to organize a philosophical doctrine called Spiritism.

There are 5 Principles of this doctrine:

1. The Existence of God;

God is the supreme intelligence, the first cause of all things. And let me add that we do believe and follow Jesus’ teachings. We see him as a much more evolved entity which we strive to become alike one day.

2. The Immortality of the Soul;

We are immortal spirits having a recurring experience on earth, meaning once our body disincarnate or die as we usually call it, our souls survive this transition and leaves on to experience other stages of life, the life after death. Most well know philosophers like Socrates, Plato knew about the immortality of the soul:

3. The Plurality of Existences;

We go through many existences where the sole purpose is the growth and the progress of our soul. While we are here incarnated, we have the free will to adopt good and/or bad behaviours which will in the end attribute to our evolvement, the goal is to someday achieve enlightenment.

As we all know, life can be really challenging at times! We all experience similar pains like the loss of a loved one, diseases, anxieties…
