Part 1

1. Dissemination: Mediumship is used by spirit authors, who, through the cooperative work of mediums, bring us their teachings, lessons, stories, and inspiring words. These mediums are able to transcribe the spirits’ words in messages that can be shared and, sometimes, in books that are published and made available to students of Spiritism.  Subsequently, those who study Spiritism and gain a solid understanding of its teachings are able to become lecturers and share the knowledge with others.

2. Counseling of suffering, discarnate spirits (and associated treatment of obsessed persons):
This kind of work takes place in special sessions, sometimes referred to as the "mediumship table", where a dedicated team of mediums, counselor(s), a spiritual and an incarnate director, and pass givers, etc., meet at a regular time to make themselves available for the counseling and treatment of suffering spirits.  In such meetings, these spirits, who sometimes come on their own but who are often brought by higher order spirits, are able to communicate through the mediums, express their anguish, and receive comforting and enlightening words that help them to see things in a different perspective.  The change is not always immediate and may take multiple sessions. Often times, the work consists of convincing the perplexed entity to accept the loving hand that is extended to him or her by the good spirits who are there to help and who then take that spirit to a place in the spiritual plane for further treatment.

Gradually, the team of incarnate workers at the center, together with their partners in the spiritual plane, is able to get many spirits the help that they need.  Many times, there are additional spirits present, who have similar problems, and who are therefore brought to the session to listen to the counseling.  In this way, they are helped, indirectly, by the work that is done with the communicating spirits.

Due to the process of mental tuning, discarnate spirits and incarnate persons whose thoughts share a point of focus and vibrational frequency (determined by the moral quality of the thoughts), can enter into a mental synchronization.  If these thoughts are negative in nature, and the synchronization is frequent, the relationship that develops can and, likely, will be detrimental to both parties.  In giving in to our moral and spiritual weaknesses, then, we make ourselves susceptible to the accompaniment, and sometimes powerful influence of unhappy, spiritual companions. When intervention from outsiders becomes necessary to break the bonds of this harmful relationship, the process of treatment is similar to that described above. The spirit who is persecuting the incarnate individual receives the same kind of counseling, except that this work takes place in sessions that are dedicated to this kind of case, referred to as “obsession”, and the individual being tormented is educated regarding the moral and spiritual efforts that he must make in order to do his part in the curative process. You can read more about this influence and the counseling of spirits in the web section that discusses  obsession (see menu bar at left).
