Spiritual Treatment for More Severe Obsessions
In the case of more severe obsessions, the efforts of the victim alone may not be sufficient to put an end to the tormenting condition. In this case, the obsession is most likely to be a highly focused and targeted operation carried out by the obsessing Spirit, usually as a form of revenge (see Causes of Obsession). In this case, as Kardec writes , "the disturbing Spirit must also be persuaded to give up its designs, recognize its error, and develop a desire to change. This can be done through skillful counseling in special, mediumistic meetings set up for the purpose of raising the Spirit's moral awareness. It's possible, then, to have the double satisfaction, in these cases, of healing a human being and redeeming a misguided spirit at the same time."
Such meetings are conducted at Spiritist Centers, where individuals who collaborate as workers of good will, in both the material and Spiritual planes, direct their combined efforts toward easing the suffering of their brothers and sisters. The meetings are organized and run by a director from the material plane, as well as a director or instructor who operates from the spiritual plane. In addition to these directors, other participants include: the counselor(s) who will converse with the communicating spirits, the mediums who will receive the spirit communications, pass givers who aid in channeling beneficial energies to both the workers and the patients, and additional benefactors from the spiritual plane. The person who is being treated for the obsession is referred to as the patient.
