Simple or Less Developed Obsessions
Efforts toward inner reform, as prescribed by Spiritist teachings, are the key to warding off the harmful influence of unhappy, inferior spirits. Again, the way to achieve this change and work toward personal growth is through the cultivation of elevated thoughts, the regular dedication of time for moments of study, reflection, and prayer, and the regular practice of kindness and compassion toward others, all the while seeking to diminish the dominance of moral weaknesses.
With regards to prayer, this person should, like all of us, pray to God and to his spirit guide(s) to help him focus on his efforts to change, asking for strength and protection. At the same time, however, he should not forget to pray for his obsessor, asking that such spirit may be helped and enabled to forgive the object of his obsession for any wrong he may have done, that the spirit's suffering be alleviated, and that he be shown a better way, one that will lead the discarnate companion to find his own peace and tranquility.
In terms of study, Spiritists are educated regarding the importance of time set aside both for individual study of Spiritism's literary resources, as well as for attendance of public meetings at the Spiritist Center. The philosophical education of Spiritism will help the individual to understand the reason for his suffering, the need for his compassion and forgiveness, and the importance of the opportunities inherent in his incarnation. Likewise, the moral teachings will serve as both the compass and the nourishment he will need in his journey toward inner reform, strengthening his efforts to develop his virtuous qualities and diminish his inferior inclinations.
