MEDIUMSHIP: ESSENTIAL PRACTICES
Charity and Compassion
Whenever possible, one should seek to recognize the opportunities that he is given to be compassionate toward others. When done discreetly, and from the heart , with no ulterior motives, acts of charity not only benefit those who are receiving, but also have multiple rewards for those who practice acts of kindness. After all, as stated in the famous prayer from Saint Francis, "it is in giving that we receive". Likewise, this sentiment is echoed by Spiritism which teaches that "without charity, there is no salvation." For the medium, in particular, the regular practice of charity also represents one way in which he can prove to the superior spirits that he is dedicated to good-will and deserving of their support and collaboration.
