Spiritism: Communication with the dead

Clique para Português

A reader questioned me about a statement in a post dealing with Spiritism: “the fact that spirits can communicate with the living is today a proved occurrence, with thousands of cases that give no room for doubt, although there are numerous other cases of persons claiming to be mediums and exploring the credibility of people to make money.”

I will relate a case that happened with my brother-in-law. He lost his younger daughter, Thais, twenty three years old, in the same day of her wedding, in a car accident. The whole family was shocked. My brother-in-law is an adept of Spiritism, and, after a couple of years, started receiving letters from his daughter, through a medium, that, although not knowing her or her family, wrote about facts that only the family could know. In addition, the signature of the letters were recognized as hers, including the three hearts that she used to draw below.

My brother-in-law received three letters through this medium. He went to a session with another medium and received two more letters with the same signature with the three hearts. Neither of the two mediums received any payment for their services. That is prohibited by Spiritism.

How can we figure this out? Could it be a kind of mental transmission that science cannot explain yet? Spiritism claims that they are messages from the deceased.

Roberto Lima Netto believes that our objective in life is to be happy, and that Jungian psychology and Spirituality, his main areas of interest, can help us in this search for happiness. He is the author of several books, including “The Little Prince for Grown-ups”  and  “The Jungian Bible”  that can be found in Amazon. His blog is www.HappinessAcademyOnline.org.

I was involved in the business world, as an executive of large companies and university professor since recently. I was the president CSN, the largest steel-mill of Latin America and was responsible for its turn-around. My first encounter with the teachings of the Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung, one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th Century, was during my midlife crisis. Reading "Man and his Symbols" at that time, inspired me to go into Jungian analysis and to begin devouring the writings of Jung and his disciples. Since then, I've been studying psychology, especially Jungian psychology and, after reaching my seventies, I decided to become a full time writer, specializing on books on Jungian psychology and psychological thrillers. Every masterpiece of literature can be absorbed through multiple interpretations, and yield powerful insights for our daily lives. My first Jungian book, “The Little Prince for Grown-ups“, in its fourth edition in Brazil, was based on the famous book of Saint-Exupéry. The second, - “The Jungian Bible” - interprets some stories of the Old Testament and world myths. As I get older and, with a bit of luck, wiser, I want to pass on to the younger generations the lessons life has taught me. Jesus Christ taught that it was easier to sell ideas with stories. Following the Master, I published in English "The Amazon Shaman" and "In Search of Happiness", two psychological thrillers around the theme of happiness.
