Ponemos en el conocimiento de nuestros amables lectores que todo el material que ofrecemos como posts en este blog ha sido extraído de la obra LOS FUNDAMENTOS DEL ESPIRITISMO, previa autorización de su autor nuestro distinguido amigo Prof. Jon Aizpurua.

No nos atreveríamos a divulgar este precioso e invaluable material doctrinario y de divulgación de la cultura espírita si no tuviésemos de antemano la autorización expresa de su autor, de lo contario incurriríamos en el plagio, actitud que nos despierta repugancia tan sólo con mencionar el término.

Hemos escogido esta obra, LOS FUNDAMENTOS DEL
ESPIRITISMO, porque estamos seguros que ella constituye la exposición más actualizada de los postulados doctrinarios expresados por el Codificador Allan Kardec, enmarcados en nuevo contexto paradigamático; el vigente en estos tiempos que corren.

En LOS FUNDAMENTOS DEL ESPIRITISMO el autor reinvidica el verdadero carácter de la Doctrina Espírita, como un sistema de pensamiento laico, racionalista, e iconoclasta, alejado de todo misticismo religioso, tal como fue codificada la Doctrina por el Maestro Allan Kardec en el siglo diecinueve.

Esta obra es eminentemente didáctica, porque está escrita en un estilo ágil y ameno, sin que por ello pierda consistencia en su brillante exposición de ideas, llegando a toda clase de público lector, desde el estudioso del Espiritismo hasta aquellas personas que se encuentran en la búsqueda de una filosofía racional que les ayude a pensar al mundo y a sí mismos.

Nos adherimos a los postulados doctrinarios sustentados por la Confederación Espiritista Panamericana, que muestran a la Doctrina Espírita como un sistema de pensamiento filosófico laico, racionalista e iconoclasta. Alejado de todo misticismo religioso. Apoyamos la Carta de Puerto Rico, emanada del XIX Congreso de la CEPA en el pasado año 2008.

What is the most precious thing we have? Without a doubt, LIFE.

Life is the highest gift we receive from the Father [the Creator]. We must therefore feel grateful and satisfied for participating in His Work, for being a part of this sea of ​​Life that surrounds us…created for all who inhabit it... It has given us the characteristics and capacities necessary to reach the highest levels of love, wisdom and perfection in our evolutionary development.

Let us love and thank Life… ours, our fellow beings, Nature, the Life of all created things. Feel respect and admiration for all living beings with whom we share evolution….

However, distressing and harsh our experiences may be, let us strive to understand the why and the what of our difficulties. Unhappiness, despair and anguish can restrict our faith and possibly lead to ruin - falling into abandonment and depression, the desire to not want to live longer, to succumb and even to accept suicide…

We are Beings of Light…we have the potential to overcome weakness and helplessness. Let us therefore raise our thoughts up, let us ask with all our strength for: Light, assistance and protection. We will receive the help we need for those difficult moments, and we will be able to continue in our daily work…

God…does not make mistakes, loves us all equally and, each one is put at his/her feet the tests and atonements necessary to strengthen and grow spiritually. When necessary, through the Law of Cause and Effect, this makes us recover lost balance, leaving this experience stored in our register of conscience to avoid repeating the same mistakes again…

...WE ARE NEVER ALONE. Let us humble ourselves and keep the spirit of struggle always to face the vicissitudes with the best predisposition... let us not fall into rebellion and confusion. With such an attitude, we aggravate our situation and attract discordant energies, obsessive spirits that will enhance our discouragement and weaknesses.

We must always be very clear where we come from and where we are going…

Let us live each chapter of our life with a good attitude and predisposition…Let us always love the Creator, with humility and devotion…

One of man’s longings is to stop time – like water in winter. But what would happen if he stopped time in the small things? What would happen to our future and the great things to come? Where would be the experience and maturity we would never reach, if time ceased to lead us to the future?

Another of man’s longings is to have more time; and the longer we have, the longer we want-like rain on the sea. But if we had more time, what else would we do, or would we stop doing more? Who has stopped to study time or understand its meaning? Who has stopped to appreciate its value? We just let the time pass without knowing at what cost.

For those of us who believe in the Spiritist doctrine, believing in the immortality of the soul, we are left with the hope of remedying in the future the misuses of it today, but similarly we do not value time.


Time is not hours, like hands on a clock. Time is not the day, like sand in an hourglass.

Time is the opportunity to leave a footprint on the pathway of other men and on our redemption. Time is the space to create our particular work and to mold our spirit.

Time is the moment which allows us to impact the lives of men. Time is the value we give to what surrounds us.

Time does not come alone, but accompanied by opportunities and decisions that we must take.

Time is dedication, discipline and effort.

Time is the train of progress that moves us from one era to another, to give us new experiences and opportunities. For behind every minute we invest, there is a decision about what is important to us and what is not…

So, it is not true when a man says, "I do not have time for what I like to do, or what I need to do." If we do not have time, the bottom line is that it is not important to us.

Let us not ask for more time, but the wisdom to use what we have, because each [future period] of time we will have greater responsibility.


We all have a task in humanity; every man was given time to collaborate in the task of love. The time we use does not belong to us, but to God.

The time we receive is to sow, not to destroy or to err. Time does not stop nor wait for us, because its function is to lead man to a new moment. Let us not see time as a fantasy, let us see it as the path that awaits us every day. Time is not an end, but a way. Time is the value we give to those around us. So, to understand time, first stop to see what is important to you.

We do not need more time, but to value what we have. Let us learn not to see the time on a clock, but in the hand of which we support, in the smile of which we give back hope, and in the greatness of the heart when it collects virtue, for that is the time of the spirit that never ends and is renewed every day.

                   (Sevilla 1835-1909)

Spiritist author, poet, and feminist from Spain

Image result for picture amalia domingo soler

In her own book entitled Memories, she tells us although financially supported, she and her mother were abandoned by her father. She became blind shortly after her birth and the doctors tried everything to no avail. A homeopath was eventually able to provide imperfect sight.

Her mother was totally devoted to her, and they cared for and loved each other very much. She was taught to read at age 5 and her first poems were published at age 18. After her father died they lived off the inheritance, but then her mother came down with a terminal illness.

Left alone, she was 25 years old when her mother died. Her inheritance was all but gone, leaving her almost penniless. Her eyesight was still very bad.
She lived with various friends making a meager living sewing and by her writings. She suffered hunger, many humiliations and periods of blindness when she worked too hard. But, she refused to enter a marriage of convenience or a convent as some friends suggested.

She reached a desperate point in her life and visited many churches trying to find consolation and help. She even contemplated suicide.
One day she met a man who introduced her to some Spiritist papers that spoke about the evolution of the soul. This changed her life forever. She found what she needed to deal with the trials and tests in her life. She started attending Spiritists groups, sessions, and started writing on topics of Spiritism (about and for women, for children, the poor, prisoners, on Spiritist principles, rebuttals to the Catholic Church, human tragedy and its causes). Her biography is in the Dictionary of Espasa Calpe, a highly reputable encyclopedia of Spain, as an important writer of the 19th century.

Her articles were printed in regular and Spiritist magazines; there are over 8 books of her writings still published to this day, and most contain spirit communications relayed to her via mediumship. She also conducted worldwide correspondence.

The guide of her spiritual work was the spirit of “Father Germain” - who dictated his life story to her when he was on earth as a priest via the medium Eudaldo. This famous Spiritist classic in the form of a novel - Memoirs of Father Germain – is her only book in English translated by my father Edgar Crespo and on www.Amazon.com. Father Germain was also a medium, believed in reincarnation and many good spirits assisted him. This book is a beautiful story of love, moral lessons, hope, consolation, intrigue and adventure.

In many books, she was given explanations from the spirit world about the cause of why specific people suffered in certain ways in their life, due to their actions in past lives.  

Finally, Ms. Soler’s Center president invited her to live with his family, to dedicate her life solely to her writings. She died in Barcelona in 1909.
She and her work, is greatly respected and beloved by many worldwide!

Spiritism teaches that there are many types of mediums. Yet, three distinct categories of “trance” mediums (those where the spirits communicate using a person’s physical body to speak) can be conscious (medium is completely aware of what is going on during the spirit communications), semi-conscious (medium partly aware) or an unconscious medium (not aware at all). However, in my experience, there are many mediums in, in-between states as well, and these situations can even fluctuate depending on the specific spirit communicating.

Each medium is very individually different. 

My grandmother (my father’s mother) was the first completely unconscious medium I ever saw work their mediumship. She could also, when conscious, see and hear spirits, and see visions as well.

At the start of the spirit communication session, she would sit down, put her hands on the table, and then head would just limp forward. Spirits would then come and go, using her, delivering their messages.

After no more spirits were going to communicate, she would sort of come to and lift her head. She then would curiously ask what had happened. She knew nothing!

When I was little, us kids always noticed that whenever she entered a house, no matter who’s it was, she would sway a little at the door as if a wave hit her, then she would stabilize herself and come in. Of course, we thought this was rather strange.

Now that I am acutely aware of how sensitive mediums can be regarding their surroundings, as a medium myself, it is now obvious she was highly sensitive to the spiritual ambience of whatever “space” she was entering, and this affected her until she adjusted. Since she was an unconscious medium, I believe she would have been even more sensitive.

At the Spiritist Center in NYC (founded in 1933) that she attended, and as some call it, she was a “working medium”; she specialized in being used by the spirits to give healing passes to help people with eye problems, besides spirit communications.

My Dad told me of an experience they both shared together in their apartment in New York City, when one day his father was still not home from work. His mom and he a young boy were both in the living room when all of a sudden, they heard the noises coming from the kitchen: the sound of water rushing hard out of the faucet, also pots and pans clanging. He said, they both looked at each other puzzled, and his mother was afraid someone had gotten in. Eventually, my father bravely went to the kitchen to see. There was no one there and the sink was as dry as a bone. Only the spirits! No other information was forthcoming, and it never happened again.

The first time I allowed a spirit to use my body for trance mediumship, my grandmother’s spirit communicated and said she would be one of the spirits to help me with the process.

Nearly my entire life has been involved interacting with spirits. I thank the assistance, inspiration and influence of the good spirits, and thank God above all else. As an imperfect human, I try to do my best to merit beneficial influences.

Faith is the confidence that man has in his destiny; having a reasoned faith illuminates the path we have to travel and gives us the will and strength necessary to overcome even the biggest obstacles that we may find throughout our journey on earth.

Hope is a feeling that drives the spirit in what we desire or aspire to, and it seems possible to achieve.

Hope, often serves as a moral support to not fall into discouragement, not lose serenity, or lose sight of what we want to achieve.

Hope is one of the most positive and constructive feelings that a human being can have. It helps us to walk the path that we have laid out living in the material world, with patience and trust.

In today's society, with so much technology, where we live so fast there is little room for hope; where all we want is achieved by pushing a button, getting it quickly, having the sensation that time passes very quickly and you have to take advantage of it to get the things we need or want. Establishing superficial relationships that do not fulfill us, without valuing everything we have and what surrounds us.

At the moment something fails, when the plans do not go as we wanted, we get pessimistic, have doubts, even despair growing within us. [There is] skepticism, because if you wait for nothing…there is no deception possible.

The thing to understand is that it is not awful to fall in the struggle, but, it is…in not being able to stand up and try again. Our life is imperfect, because we are imperfect, and we have much work to do perfecting ourselves.

Always take a first step to reach the end of the path we have drawn, and those steps are better with discipline and will, to avoid irresponsibility that can cause us not have clear ideas of where we want to arrive.

Discipline is responsible for the success of all high achievements, the will being the motor that helps us to carry them out…

Faith and hope have a common goal, belief in something that is not with the physical senses…

Hope is born of faith, of faith in God and the love that goes growing within each of us. This love awakens the belief that God is there...

(Excerpts from 1/18/17 article published on-line at www.amorpazycaridad.com [Love, Peace and Charity] by Group Villena Spiritual Studies in Alicante, Spain translated by Y. Limoges) Have moral courage, faith and hope against all the fear and evil in this world! Y.L.

Valentine’s Day:
I happened to go to the grocery store right on Valentine’s Day. I saw so many people swiftly scrambling around (men mostly) to buy cards, candy and/or flowers; many carrying armfuls of all three of these items. There were mad dashes here and there.

How nice I thought, and I smiled. I love receiving cards and flowers, as do most others.

For some of those people giving, it may be the only way and time they are capable of showing caring and appreciation for people in their lives.

However, many people do NOT receive anything on Valentine’s Day.

Yet, there are many who care and think about us, although invisible… our spirit guides, family and friends in the spirit world that all send loving vibrations to comfort and ease those with heavy hearts in this world full of sorrow. Don’t forget we are ALL loved more than we know!

Good Times vs. Bad:

I asked a man in his late 80s (one I have known for years who has and still suffers much) the following, “As you look back on your life, do you remember mostly the good times or the bad?”

He thought only a few seconds and said he remembers the “good times” more. Then, upon more reflection, he said, “I guess we try to forget the bad.”

I was relieved and comforted. How wonderful and blessed that he feels this way, especially at this stage of his material life!


Working over 20 years at the Social Security Administration, I witnessed close up much human misfortune and suffering. One day, an upset co-worker said they could not understand how people could end up in such desperate situations.

Another co-worker and I explained by saying: Even when people have done what they possibly could do to help themselves…An employee gets hurt or is sick, they lose their job and can’t pay rent or mortgage so are now homeless. They can’t pay their health insurance so no more medical care or medicine. They can’t pay car insurance so can’t legally drive. They use up all their savings, sell everything they own in order to eat. Not able to pay bills, their bank account closes and credit history destroyed. Maybe one person in the family can work, but for various reasons they don’t get hired right away. They may have no relatives to help them. They are unable to qualify for food stamps, Medicaid, unemployment or disability benefits due to certain rules. Food pantries and charities only go so far…Yes, these desperate situations actually exist all around us.

Quite a few of us in the office would personally help some of these people out of our own pockets.

In the end, our co-worker finally understood…

Remember, Jesus said,Judge not, that ye not be judged.” (Bible, Matthew 7:1-3)


“Poverty is the worst form of violence.”
                                          Mahatma Gandhi

“When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you or I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.”                             Mother Teresa


The spirit of Father Germain said:

“You are mistaken in believing that when you leave your material envelope [physical body] you will look at the Earth with horror.”

“As you will take some time to leave that planet, and know you will have taken advantage of the time there in your progression, you will receive a good dose of reflection. You can be sure to look at the world, where you have suffered so much, with true affection, and you will even travel in spirit to all the places where you were overwhelmed under the weight of your cross [trials and struggles], and feel that public works have destroyed the humble dwellings where you had lived, where you had quenched your thirst with your tears.

(Excerpt from a true story in the book La Luz de La Verdad [The Light of Truth] by Amalia Domingo Soler a famous Spiritist poet and author from Spain. She received many wise messages from Father Germain. Article translated by Yvonne C. Limoges)


This spirit message given to Ms. Soler reminds me of what people even do when living in the material world.

We have all lived several places (in different houses, towns, states, countries, etc.) throughout our life. Later on, some of us decide to go back to see all the old places we have spent time. At times, the houses or buildings we lived in are still there, sometimes not. We find other structures have been built in their place. In addition, for many of us, it doesn’t matter whether we had good or bad memories, we go back for different reasons, like: curiosity, reflection, for sentimentality, to face fears, to reminisce, and other reasons. As we can see, many spirits return to do the same thing after they have left this Earth. – Y. L.

My uncle, father-in-law and my husband died relatively young of different types of cancer so this specific disease is personal for me. The disease’s progression is devastating to the patient, and absolutely heart-breaking for their loved ones.      

In the 2016/2017 Winter Issue of Cancer Today magazine there are two important articles.

The first one states that the more alcohol one drinks based on a wide range of medical studies, the higher one’s risk for 7 types of cancers.

The second article states that the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has determined there is sufficient evidence that excess body weight (or BMI) increases a person’s risk for 8 types of cancer, now up from 5 types.

Please know your risks! Eat and drink wisely.

NASA just announced the discovery of a solar system that has 7 planets and 3 of them have a strong possibility of having water and organic life. This type of information has already been transmitted to us by the spirit world. The spirits also tell us that there is intelligent life on other worlds as well, although we have yet to discover it.

The spirits say there are generally five basic categories of planets: the primitive worlds, worlds of tests and atonements, regenerating worlds, blessed worlds, and celestial worlds. Our earth has already transformed from a primitive world to one of tests and atonements where misery, evil, and violence still abound. We will eventually progress into a world of regeneration where the majority of the spirits will be striving to be only good, and where evil will not predominate.

                Written by Julie L. Harper

The spirit world is teaming with good and adverse spirits, many of which reach out to humans to exert their influences. And, natural magnetic attraction, by the law of attraction, will consequent in like spirits seconding one's intent or attitude toward a like result.

So, just as good spirits attempt to influence beneficial behaviors, wrongful spirits attempt to influence detrimental action. The good spirits selflessly desire to promote betterment within another's life, while spirits of ill intent hold ulterior motives to gain pleasure from encouraging and influencing unusual or wrongful thoughts and/or action. All-in-all, humans have many distractions and influences by both worldly and spiritual influences. One must be vigilant to maintain good character.

Some undesirable spirits are attracted to humans who share a negative tendency and then promote such activity. For example, a spirit who was an alcoholic during earthly life may be attracted to a human who has the tendency to drink. That spirit takes pleasure in influencing their own former habit of excessive drinking [just one example].

Whereas, some spirits seek to influence poor behavior with the intent of creating a result of a bad outcome in order to cause unhappiness and hardship. Such spirit may be malevolent, or one that is seeking revenge from believing that the targeted human caused it injustice during a period of time while both were incarnated. There is a myriad of differing spirits with different wrongful intents.

When you pray, and hold fast to conviction of a high moral integrity, your thoughts and actions will follow accordingly and create favorable results. Be ever so mindful of whether your thoughts are true to your integrity to avoid wrongful influences and the taking of action that is not consistent with your personal character.

Further, each individual must atone for all wrongfulness, whether within a current life or in a future one, as mandated by the law of progress. In that, it behooves everyone to strive to be the best person possible.

More importantly, God has instilled within us the duty to be loving and just. God's natural and universal laws are set in place to guide us in the direction of goodness through the mandate of appropriate consequence for each thought, word or deed. Overall, when in the sentiment of goodness, it is an easier path of progression.


Spirit communication received by Alysia Pape

To those of you going through life and suffering well, know that you are not alone.

Your spirit guide and good spirits are all with you. They encourage you every day and pray for you; they want you to succeed in becoming a better soul in every way. You only need to make every possible effort, pray for God's help and their help, and do not fall off of the good path you have started down.

Should you fall, pick yourself up and try again. God only asks that we do our very best.

                                     Memoirs of Father Germain
An orphan before age five, Germain spends two years living alone on the seashore in seventeenth century France. 
One fateful day he strays into a castle of monks-and is not allowed to leave. The monks educate him and he is proved to be an excellent student, but he suffers from their cold and unfeeling ways. As a young man, Germain eventually takes his vows becoming a priest in the Catholic Church.
He settles in a poor village with his faithful dog, Sultan, and it is here that he consoles the humble and oppressed-sometimes risking his life for their sake.
HOWEVER, FATHER GERMAIN HE IS A MEDIUM AND BELIEVES IN REINCARNATION! Father Germain teaches love of the Creator and mankind with a belief that even the most hardened heart can be turned toward goodness. He exposes church hypocrisy and is persecuted by his superiors; yet he continues to teach according to his conscience.
Memoirs of Father Germain is the touching, true account of this beloved priest's life relayed to Amalia Domingo Soler of Spain through the mediumship of Eudaldo.

Based on his understanding of the natural and spiritual law of reincarnation, Vives provides guidelines for our obligations to our Creator and to Jesus-based on a universal moral code. 
He explains simply how Spiritists should act before: the Creator, Jesus, ourselves, our family, other Spiritists and Humanity, and how to handle the trials and temptations of this Life...

En los momentos en que somos capaces de acallar los "ruidos" que día a día nos saturan, llega el SILENCIO. Desde ahí la VOZ INTERIOR encuentra la posibilidad de manifestarse. Entonces las comprensiones instantáneas, las impresiones directas, las imágenes luminosas - es decir, la intuición espiritual - asoman, aportando la energía de la CERTIDUMBRE.

TOMADO DE: https://grupoespiritaisladelapalma.wordpress.com/2016/12/21/las-voces-del-silencio-lix/
